As the Editor observed: "Tolstoi spent his mature years in a Europe that was arming and prepared for the War of 1914. He foresaw the war; predicted it; and spent much time and energy trying to create anti-war public opinion.

His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him to become a fervent Christian anarchist and pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, had a profound impact on such pivotal 20th-century figures as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Money Conversion Chart. Maps. Signed by the Editor on the title page. Laid in is a typed letter signed by the Editor providing a copy of the book and a promotional flyer on the book. The editor wrote: Throughout my life I have developed a passion for history, especially social history. As I learned about the important events of the past, I always wanted to know about the ordinary people and wondered what their lives were like. When my husband brought home his father's old suitcase, filled with letters, we didn't realize it was really a treasure chest. As the old German letters were translated into English, I was intrigued by the stories that were told. What started as a family project developed into a mission to share these revealing stories with others who have an interest in social history. As I edited and organized the letters, journals and photos, I also added historical comments for clarification. It has been an unexpected journey for me and added another dimension to my life. I believe this book touches readers in a primal way as it describes what we all want: to live our lives the best we can. Dear Willy is about contrasts, love, loyalties and how determination can lead to a better life. History can be viewed from many angles, but there is nothing like firsthand accounts to bring it to life. Letters sent to and from Germany became the lifeline for the Geheb family as they shared concerns, triumphs and tragedies. These accounts of their lives take the reader back in time and into their personal world.

There she meets–re-meets–Baruch, the son of her mother’s college roommate. When Tzippy last saw him, his name was Bryan and he wore a Yankees-logo yarmulke. Now he has adopted the black hat of the ultra-orthodox, the tradition in which Tzippy was raised. Twelve weeks later, they’re engaged...and discovering that desire and tradition, devotion and individuality aren’t the easiest balance.

She was the first African-American author to have a novel published in the Silhouette Desire line, and has seen many of her novels reach The New York Times and USAToday bestsellers lists. In 2013 Jackson published her 100th novel, becoming the first African American to achieve this milestone. Brenda Jackson was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. She went on to earn a degree in business administration from Jacksonville University. To relieve job-related stress in the early 1990s, Jackson began reading romance novels. Although she enjoyed the novels, she was dissatisfied with the lack of cultural and ethnic diversity in the characters. Jackson was determined to write novels that are multicultural romances, featuring African-American characters, that "convey the belief that love is every[where]." Her first novel, Tonight and Forever was published in 1995. This and the next few books followed the fictional Madaris brothers, giving Jackson an opportunity to portray professional African-American men who were both "appreciative and respectful of women." In 2001, Jackson released her first mainstream women's fiction novel, A Family Reunion. As with her previous romance novels, this book contains a "sexy spark," as well as Jackson's familiar "polished and confident" writing style.

Contents are Introduction, The Black Sun, The Next, Doglandia, Doctor Helios and Author Notes. Lewis Shiner (born December 30, 1950 in Eugene, Oregon) is an American writer. Shiner began his career as a science fiction writer, and then identified with cyberpunk. He later wrote more mainstream novels, often with magical realism and fantasy elements. Shiner graduated from Southern Methodist University in 1973. Several of his novels have rock music as a theme or main focus, especially the musicians of the late 1960s; for example, Shiner's 1993 novel Glimpses considers the great never-recorded albums of The Doors, Brian Wilson, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. Say Goodbye: The Laurie Moss Story (1999) focuses on a fictional up-and-coming female musician and her subsequent fall back down. Slam (1990) is immersed in skate punk and anarchist culture. Perhaps because novels with music as a major theme are not generally considered mainstream genre material, his work has frequently been overlooked. He is a contributing author to the George R. R. Martin-edited anthology Wild Cards, notably creating that universe's most powerful character, the tantric sex magic wielding pimp, Fortunato. In July 2007 Shiner created the web site Fiction Liberation Front (FLF) as a venue for his short stories. The stories are released under the Creative Commons license and are available in HTML and PDF formats. On July 22, 2007, The News & Observer began publishing a weekly column by Shiner, titled "Graphic Scenes", about comics.

Inscription reads Nov. 7, 2019 To My Doctor Bloom God Bless! Rev. Veazey. Forewords by Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., and Rev. Dr. John W. Kinney, Reverend Veazey (1936-2021) spent 64 years in the ministry, 55 years as a pastor, and is the third generation minister. His grandfather, the Rev. George Franklin Veazey, who was born into slavery in 1860, established his first church in Arkabutla, MS in 1890. Reverend Carlton Veazey was educated in the public schools of Memphis and graduated with honors from Booker T. Washington High School in 1954. He entered the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff where he received scholarships in both voice and instrumental music. After more than 35 years, Rev. Veazey left Zion, and in 1994 became the Founding Pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in the District. After retirement from Fellowship Baptist Church following 22 years of service, Reverend Veazey completed one of his longtime goals — he wrote his book, Pilgrimage In Clay Feet, an autobiography which spans his life from his early years to his retirement. The author shares testimony from his pilgrimage through life and relates memories of important people and events that helped shape his sense of faith. He reflects on his time in the church, which includes sixty-two years in ministry and fifty-five years in pastorate. He also shares the trials he went through and their valuable lessons and reflects on what he feels to be some faulty theology the church has embraced. The author looks back on his trials and tribulations.
