♥ Book Title : Child of All Nations
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Child of All Nations , the reader is immediately swept up by a story that is profoundly feminist, devastatingly anticolonialist-and full of heartbreak, suspense, love, and fury. Pramoedya immerses the reader in a world that is astonishing in its vividness: the cultural whirlpool that was the Dutch East Indies of the 1890s. A story of awakening, it follows Minke, the main character of This Earth of Mankind , as he struggles to overcome the injustice all around him. Pramoedya's full literary genius is evident in the brilliant characters that populate this world: Minke's fragile Mixed-Race wife; a young Chinese revolutionary; an embattled Javanese peasant and his impoverished family; the French painter Jean Marais, to name just a few."Article| Pramoedya Ananta Toer| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Child of All Nations
☯ Full Synopsis : "Kully knows some things you don't learn at school. She knows the right way to roll a cigarette and pack a suitcase. She knows that cars are more dangerous than lions. She knows that you can't enter a country without a passport or visa. And she knows that she and her parents can't go back to Germany again – her father's books are banned there. But there are also things she doesn't understand, like why there might be a war in Europe – just that there are men named Hitler, Mussolini and Chamberlain involved. Little Kully is far more interested in where their next meal will come from and the ladies who seem to buzz around her father. In this utterly enchanting novel, some of the great themes of 1930's Europe are refracted through the eyes of a child who is both naove and wise beyond her years. Irrepresible Kully, her charming, feckless father and her nervy, fragile mother are brought to life through Irmgard Keun's fast-paced prose."Article| Irmgard Keun| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : House of Glass
☯ Full Synopsis : "With House Of Glass comes the final chapter of Pramoedya's epic quartet, set in the Dutch East Indies at the turn of the century. A novel of heroism, passion, and betrayal, it provides a spectacular conclusion to a series hailed as one of the great works of modern literature. At the start of House of Glass, Minke, writer and leader of the dissident movement, is now imprisoned—and the narrative has switched to Pangemanann, a former policeman, who has the task of spying and reporting on those who continue the struggle for independence. But the hunter is becoming the hunted. Pangemanann is a victim of his own conscience and has come to admire his adversaries. He must decide whether the law is to safeguard the rights of the people or to control the people. He fears the loss of his position, his family, and his self-respect. At last Pangemanann sees that his true opponents are not Minke and his followers, but rather the dynamism and energy of a society awakened."Article| Pramoedya Ananta Toer| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : In the Time of Madness
☯ Full Synopsis : "From the acclaimed author of The People Who Eat Darkness comes this “deeply felt” account of Indonesia at the crossroads of freedom and terror (Time Asia). In the last years of the twentieth century, foreign correspondent Richard Lloyd Parry found himself in the vast island nation of Indonesia, one of the most alluring, mysterious, and violent countries in the world. For thirty-two years, it had been paralyzed by the grip of the dictator and mystic General Suharto, but now the age of Suharto was coming to an end. Would freedom prevail, or was the “time of madness” predicted centuries before now at hand? On the island of Borneo, tribesmen embarked on a rampage of headhunting and cannibalism. Vast jungles burned uncontrollably; money lost its value; there were plane crashes and volcanic eruptions. Then, after Suharto’s tumultuous fall, came the vote on East Timor’s independence from Indonesia. And it was here, trapped in the besieged compound of the United Nations, that Richard reached his own breaking point. A book of hair-raising immediacy and psychological unravelling, In the Time of Madness is an accomplishment in the great tradition of Conrad, Orwell, and Ryszard Kapuscinski."Article| Richard Lloyd Parry| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The apparitions of the Lady of all Nations in Amsterdam: Ida is just twelve years old when a beautiful Lady in a dazzling light appears to her. The child immediately recognizes her as the Blessed Virgin, clad in a long white dress with a cream-colored sash. She is pregnant and just smiles at the child that is basking in Her light. That very same day and hour in Fatima, the last of six separate sightings of Maria apparitions takes place. The children of Fatima and Ida see a bilocate apparition. That the Amsterdam Apparitions received approval with the consent of Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger, and the acceptance of the late John Paul II in 2002, is just one of the many miracles foretold by that Lady. The magic formula the Blessed Virgin gave in Amsterdam is believed to be capable of saving the church and the world."Article| Mohamed el-Fers| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "This new edition of a bestselling textbook (over 185,000 copies sold) draws on key biblical texts to demonstrate that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship fuels missionary outreach.

He examines whether Jesus is the only way to salvation and issues a passionate plea for God-centeredness in the missionary enterprise, seeking to define the scope of the task and the means for reaching "all nations." The third edition has been revised and expanded throughout and includes new material on the prosperity gospel. The book is essential reading for those involved in or preparing for missions work. It also offers enlightenment for college and seminary students, pastors, youth workers, campus ministers, and all who want to connect their labors to God's global purposes."Article| John Piper| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: An Analysis of Treaty Provisions and Implications of U.S. Ratification
☯ Full Synopsis : "This in-depth text goes beyond the rhetoric of the debate on children’s rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, in particular, to provide a detailed examination of the impact that U.S. ratification of the Convention would have on U.S. law. The chapters have been written by leading children’s advocates and scholars with a general audience in mind, as the authors believe that it is important for all Americans to become informed about the Convention and about children’s rights in general. With a greater understanding of the substance of the Convention and children’s rights, readers will be better positioned to determine what the real issues are, what is simply rhetoric without any basis in fact or law, and how they can address the real issues in an effective manner in order to provide a better world for all children."Article| Jonathan Todres| Statement ..."

Cloth. $125.* Chitty [1776-1841], the distinguished English legal scholar, produced this edition of Vattel's classic study to bring it to the attention of a wider audience. "[I]t is of infinitely more extended utility, he observed, because it "contains a practical collection of ethics, principles, and rules of conduct to be observed and pursued, as well by private individuals as by states, and these of the utmost practical importance to the well-being, happiness, and ultimate and permanent advantage and benefit of all mankind." It should therefore be studied "by every gentleman of liberal education, and by youth, in whom the best moral principles should be inculcated. The work should be familiar in the Universities, and in every class above the inferior ranks of society. And, as regards lawyers, it contains the clearest rules of construing private contracts, and respecting Admiralty and Insurance law.": Preface v."Article| Emer de Vattel| Statement ..."
