♥ Book Title : A Passion for the Past
☯ Full Synopsis : "Ivor Noël Hume has devoted his life to uncovering countless lives that came before him. In A Passion for the Past the world-renowned archaeologist turns to his own life, sharing with the reader a story that begins amid the bombed-out rubble of post–World War II London and ends on North Carolina’s Roanoke Island, where the history of British America began. Weaving the personal with the professional, this is the chronicle of an extraordinary life steered by coincidence scarcely believable even as fiction. Born into the good life of pre-Depression England, Noël Hume was a child of the 1930s who had his silver spoon abruptly snatched away when the war began. By its end he was enduring a period of Dickensian poverty and clinging to aspirations of becoming a playwright. Instead, he found himself collecting antiquities from the shore of the river Thames and, stumbling upon this new passion, becoming an "accidental" archaeologist. From those beginnings emerged a career that led Noël Hume into the depths of Roman London and, later, to Virginia’s Colonial Williamsburg, where for thirty-five years he directed its department of archaeology. His discovery of nearby Martin’s Hundred and its massacred inhabitants is perhaps Noël Hume’s best-known achievement, but as these chapters relate, it was hardly his last, his pursuit of the past taking him to such exotic destinations as Egypt, Jamaica, Haiti, and to shipwrecks in Bermuda. When the author began his career, historical archaeology did not exist as an academic discipline. It fell to Noël Hume’s books, lectures, and television presentations to help bring it to the forefront of his profession, where it stands today. This story of a life, and a career, unlike any other reveals to us how the previously unimagined can come to seem beautifully inevitable."Article| Ivor Noël Hume| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Egypt Unexpected
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book of extraordinary photographs of the 'other side' of Egypt is the result of the more than three years that Italian photojournalist Silvia Dogliani spent in the country, traveling, meeting people, and looking out for the unexpected. Through her pictures she presents a remarkable--and different--portrait of Egypt, avoiding the well-known history and the popular views, focusing instead on life as it is lived by its people. Three main oppositions are the focus of this book: Noise--the infinite variety of sounds that are life's constant background--and Silence--secretly hidden and always desired; Spirit--a fascinating labyrinth of beliefs--and Movement--the action of lively faces and places; Past--the magnificent memories touched by nostalgia--and Future--the fervent wish for improvement. Complementing the 150 color pictures are informal interviews with Egyptians and non-Egyptians from all walks of life--both the famous and the not so famous--whose words give a further feeling of the real Egypt, an insight beyond the pyramids, temples, and tombs."Article| Silvia Dogliani| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Second Translator
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Second Translator unfolds on the eve of the bloody terrorist train bombings in Madrid and winds its way through Spain, Rome, South Africa, New York, and Boston bringing with it a tale of intrigue, danger, and betrayal. Its young hero, a translator named Martin Lambert, is swept up by the turmoil and revelation that the terrorists attack could be retribution for an old treaty between the Muslims and Catholics that he suspects might have been mistranslated in modern times to protect the riches and treasures of the Catholic Church. Struggling with his own disillusionments and staying out of danger, Martins search for the original treaty is complicated by his intense attraction to a Spanish dancer while at the same time being pulled closer to the woman whos been in his life. Inspired by true events and interwoven with fictional creations, The Second Translator represents a novelistic expression of the dilemma between conformity and adventure, echoing the bane and dissatisfaction witnessed in contemporary society."Article| Hazel Warlaumont| Statement ..."
