Book excerpt: Something is wrong. Lakali can’t figure out why her clear-thinking sessions are leaving her upset and frightened. Plagued by the “daymares” that now take over the sessions, Lakali wonders if she should go to the leaders for help, but something tells her that isn’t a good idea. All of the islanders believe that their leaders provide the sessions to help them make wise decisions. How would the leaders react if Lakali told them what was happening to her? Still, the more she remembers, the more frightening her life becomes. Do the leaders truly have the islanders’ best interests at heart, or is there something more sinister going on? Worse yet, will Lakali be able to convince her best friend and the man she loves that she isn’t going crazy before it’s too late?

Book excerpt: In 2155 there are two Americas: one for the wealthy and one for the poor. The wealthy control most of the land and all the technology, while the poor lead short and squalid lives confined to the remnants of America's collapsed cities, known as Islands. The two cultures collide when Galen Fairchild, a young Islander, falls in love with Mata Vandermere, the daughter of a prosperous family from the modern city of Stratis. Like Romeo and Juliet, Galen and Mata struggle to stay together in the face of daunting opposition from family, friends, and many other forces. Their troubles finally lead them into the ghostlike ruins of downtown Minneapolis, where no Islander dares to go. Inside the crumbling skyscrapers, they discover a strange power linked to Galen's past, which not only changes his life forever, but also pits the two cultures against each other with cataclysmic results. --From author's website.
Summary Book Review The Islander. Complete and Unabridged A translation of An tOileánach by Tomás O'Crohan:
Download or read book The Islander. Complete and Unabridged A translation of An tOileánach written by Tomás O'Crohan and published by Gill & Macmillan Ltd. This book was released on 2012-09-14 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This superb account of life on the Great Blasket Island off the west coast of Kerry, written as the nineteenth century draws to its close and the dawn of a new era trespasses on the lives of its small community, is both a shocking and captivating read. Here is the first complete translation of Tomás O'Crohan's autobiography An tOileánach, first published in 1929. This edition is based on Professor Sean O Coileain's definitive 2002 Irish language edition. It contains many passages omitted from the previous English language translation by Robin Flower from the 1930s, some of which were thought too earthy for the times. Tomás O'Crohan, a fisherman who, at around the age of forty, has taught himself to read and write in his own native tongue, depicts in unaffected, vivid language a very unforgiving landscape of human experience. The Islander reflects life as it was on the Blaskets, raw, real and extremely challenging.

Summary Book Review Torres Strait Islander Women and the Pacific War by Elizabeth Osborne:
Download or read book Torres Strait Islander Women and the Pacific War written by Elizabeth Osborne and published by Aboriginal Studies Press. This book was released on 1997-01-01 with total page 271 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Between 1942 and 1945, Torres Strait Islander women experienced the fears and uncertainties of living virtually on Australia's front line during the Pacific War. Some were forcibly evacuated with their children to the mainland, where they found themselves still restricted as to where and how they could live. Others were left on their tiny islands, deserted in the end by government and church, despite the constant threat of Japanese advance through the Torres Strait. Many of the women remember here that traumatic time: hiding from the bombers and watching the dogfights overhead, struggling to feed and clothe their families, and praying continually for the safe return of their men-folk and for peace again in their beloved island homes.

Summary Book Review 30 Years After by Carine Berbéri:
Download or read book 30 Years After written by Carine Berbéri and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-03-16 with total page 214 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Thirty years after the Argentinian invasion of the Falkland Islands, the war remains a source of continued debate and analysis for politicians, historians and military strategists. Not only did the conflict provide a fascinating example of modern expeditionary warfare, but it also brought to the fore numerous questions regarding international law, sovereignty, the inheritance of colonialism, the influence of history on national policy and the use of military force for domestic political uses. As the essays in this collection show, the numerous facets of the Falklands War remain current today and have ramifications far beyond the South Atlantic. Covering issues ranging from military strategy to Anglo-American relations, international reactions and international law to media coverage, the volume provides an important overview of some of the complex issues involved, and offers a better understanding of this conflict and of the tensions which still exist today between London and Buenos Aires. Of interest to scholars of history, politics, international relations and defence studies, the volume provides a timely and forthright examination of a short but bloody episode of a kind that is likely to be seen with increasing frequency, as nations lay competing claims to disputed territories around the globe.
