"In December 1941 the Japanese invaded Burma. For the British, the longest land campaign of the Second World War had begun. 100,000 African soldiers were taken from Britain's colonies to fight the Japanese in the Burmese jungles. They performed heroically in one of the most brutal theatres of war, yet their contribution has been largely ignored. Isaac Fadoyebo was one of those 'Burma Boys'. At the age of sixteen he ran away from his Nigerian village to join the British Army. Sent to Burma, he was attacked and left for dead in the jungle by the Japanese. Sheltered by courageous local rice farmers, Isaac spent nine months in hiding before his eventual rescue. He returned to Nigeria a hero, but his story was soon forgotten. Barnaby Phillips travelled to Nigeria and Burma in search of Isaac, the family who saved his life, and the legacy of an Empire. Another Man's War is Isaac's story."--Page 2 of jacket.

512 pages ; 25 cm
Includes bibliographic references, notes (pgs. 405-488) and index.
"From the renowned and best-selling author of A History of God, a sweeping exploration of religion's connection to violence. For the first time in American history, religious self-identification is on the decline. Some have cited a perception that began to grow after Sept 11: That faith in general is a source of aggression, intolerance and divisiveness--something bad for society. But how accurate is that view? And does it apply equally to all faiths? In these troubled times, we risk basing decisions of real and dangerous consequence on mistaken understandings of the faiths subscribed around us, in our immediate community as well as globally. And so, with her deep learning and sympathetic understanding, Karen Armstrong examines the impulse toward violence in each of the world's great religions.

At home in exile : why diaspora is good for the Jews

October 23, 2014
Wolfe, Alan, 1942- author.
272 pages ; 24 cm
"The Holocaust followed by Israel's creation constituted a kind of civil religion for Jews, reminding them of their eternal vulnerability while offering salvation in the form of statehood. Memories inevitably change, however, and as the impact of these two titanic events fade, an increasingly number of Judiasm's next generation is starting to reject the particularism associated with both events in favor of a rebirth of the universalism that once characterized life in the diaspora. In this book I argue that this is a positive moment, both for Jews and the non-Jews with whom they live"-- Provided by publisher.

"With unparalleled access to Heisman Trophy-winning phenom Johnny Manziel, Bruce Feldman has written a modern-day tale about the making of the next superstars in football's most important position: the quarterback. In the world of modern football, with teams worth a billion dollars or more, no position defines a franchise like quarterback. To tell the story of all that goes on to create the perfect quarterback, bestselling author Bruce Feldman gained unique access to "Johnny Football" (that's Johnny Manziel), George Whitfield (a.k.a. "The Quarterback Whisperer"), and other unique players in what has become a specialized and high-stakes business. In the past decade the boom of the private quarterback-coach business, with its pageant-world-for-boys vibe, is changing the position and the game. The QB will tell the story of the interlocking paths of the most fascinating characters involved in this secretive world, examining how advanced analysis has taken root in football. Manziel is one of the most gifted and charismatic collegiate quarterbacks ever, with superior talent and entertaining antics. His guru is a man who has come to be known for making QBs--George Whitfield. And then there is Trent Dilfer, the least talented QB ever to win a Super Bowl, the Salieri to Manziel's Mozart, who wonders why he did not go farther. In The QB, the stories of these three men illustrate how high the stakes of the quarterback game really are, taking readers on a compelling journey into the heart of America's beloved game"-- Provided by publisher.

Mastering this field, this give and take of energy, is the secret to what makes marriage flourish.Rob and Kristin Bell are brutally honest about their own struggles, their ups and downs, as together they pass along what matters most for couples. In this wise book, they explore the secret of what makes a happy union--probing the mystery at the heart of the extraordinary emotional connection that binds two people. With his down-to-earth charm, a dose of whimsy, and memorable stories, Rob, writing with his wife Kristen, changes how we consider marriage, providing insight that can help all of us create satisfying and sacred unions of our own"-- Provided by publisher.

With the seemingly limitless ways to enjoy this superfood -- kale salad, kale chips, kale pizza, kale soup, kale pesto, and even kale cookies -- one book just wasn't enough. Kale, available in so many gorgeous varieties, grows well in pots, and anyone with a balcony, back porch or limited outdoor space can access fresh, tender leaves year-round. In addition to more tips on kale cultivation, Sharon and Carol invite readers to branch out with thirteen other superfood crops that are equally easy to grow, as well as nutritious and versatile in the kitchen. With advice on growing and using arugula, basil, chives, cilantro/coriander, herb fennel, garlic, kale, lovage, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme, readers can save hundreds of dollars a year on grocery bills.

"In Spent, editor Kerry Cohen opens the closet doors wide to tales of women's true relationships with shopping, from humorous stories of love/hate relationships with the mall to heartbreaking tales of overspending to fix relationships. With a contributor list that includes notable female writers like Emily Chenoweth, Ophira Eisenberg, Allison Amend, and Aryn Kyle, the essays each shine light on the particular impact shopping has on all of us. Whether they're cleaning out closets of loved ones, hiding a shoplifting habit, trying out extreme couponing, dividing up family possessions, or buying a brand-new car while in labor, the book's contributors vacillate between convincing themselves to spend and struggling not to. This illuminating anthology links the effects shopping has on our emotions - whether it fills us with guilt, happiness, resentment, or doubt - our self-worth, and our relationships with parents, grandparents, lovers, children, and friends.

Rewilding our hearts : building pathways of compassion and coexistence

October 23, 2014
Bekoff, Marc.
Novato, California : New World Library, 2014.
xv, 198 pages ; 20 cm
Introduction : what is "rewilding our hearts"? -- Global problems, personal unwilding -- Compassion and coexistence mean it's not all about us -- Making it real : hard choices and bottom lines -- Rewilding the media : our mirror up to nature -- Rewilding the future : wild play and humane education -- Afterword : rewild as you go.
"In wildlife conservation work, rewilding - to make wild once again - refers to the creation of corridors between preserved lands that allow declining populations to rebound. Marc Bekoff, one of our most engaging animal experts and activists, here applies the concept to human attitudes. He argues that unless we rewild ourselves, becoming profoundly reconnected to nature and fundamentally shifting our consciousness, our conservation efforts will have but limited impact. Bekoff shows that when we make the effort to not just see, but to empathetically become "the seen," our perspective on animals and their habitats changes in profound ways. As we shift to acting from the inside out, our efforts move beyond simply reacting to current crises and become powerfully proactive. Ultimately, Rewilding Our Hearts invites readers to become re-enchanted with our world, and by dissolving false boundaries, to truly connect with both nature and ourselves.

Our America : the Latino presence in American art

Smithsonian American Art Museum, host institution, owner.
Washington, DC : Smithsonian Amerian Art Museum/D Giles Ltd, 2014.
365 pages : color illustrations, portraits ; 31 cm
"Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name, on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC, October 25, 2013-March 2, 2014."
""On the one hand, the affirmation that Latino art is American art is simply a fact. Latino artists are American by birth, citizenship, residence, education, experience, and even sacrifice-a factor made clear by the large number of Latino artists that have served in the United States armed forces. On the other hand, the statement poses a challenge to the ways in which we traditionally think about what constitutes American art."-E. Carmen RamosIs Latino art an integral part of modern American art? Presenting one hundred major artworks from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Our America seeks to "recalibrate" enduring concepts about American national culture by exploring how one group of artists-those of Latin American descent and heritage-express their relationship to American art, history, and culture.Highlights include an installation altar by Amalia Mesa-Bains, the "recycled" films of Raphael Montañez Ortiz, and a 1960 geometric painting by Carmen Herrera. Other notable artists include Olga Albizu, Melesio "Mel" Casas, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Margarita Cabrera, Enrique Chagoya, Teresita Fernández, Ken Gonzales-Day, Luis Jiménez, Ana Mendieta, Pepón Osorio, Sophie Rivera, Freddy Rodri;guez, and John Valadez, among many others.Author and curator E. Carmen Ramos is the Smithsonian American Art Museum's curator of latino art. She has organized numerous shows, including the fifth biennial at El Museo del Barrio in New York City in 2007.Dr. Tomás Ybarra-Frausto, the "grandfather" of this subject, and formerly associate director for creativity and culture at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York, has written and published extensively on US/latino cultural issues"-- Provided by publisher.
