Abandoned by her parents as a three-year-old, and ultimately leaving her home country India for a new life in America as a young mother of a three-year-old son, this is not only an immigrant's story, but a poignant and powerful memoir that is at first, one of sadness and continuing adversity, but ultimately one of strength, purpose, and the universal triumph of hope. It is a story of dislocation, disruption, and despair, and brings focus to the silencing of girlhood and womanhood and how with time, love, and support we can work our way out of that silence. Shabnam Samuel was twenty seven when she moved to the US, carrying with her a troubled marriage, an almost estranged husband, and a three-year-old son. Hoping to create a fresh start from everything that was holding her down, it took Shabnam twenty-five years of trials and tribulations to finally find her voice, her strength, and her place in this world.

Yusif Sayigh

An acclaimed economist and lifelong Palestinian nationalist Yusif Sayigh (1916-2004) came of age at a time of immense political change in the Middle East. Born in al-Bassa, near Acre in northern Palestine, he was witness to the events that led to the loss of Palestine and his memoir therefore constitutes a vivid social history of the region, as well as a revealing firsthand account of the Palestinian national movement almost from its earliest inception. Family and everyday life, co-villagers, landscapes, pleasures, outings, schooling, and political figures recreate the vanished world of Sayigh’s formative years in the Levant. An activist in Palestine, he was taken prisoner of war by the Israelis in 1948. Later, as an economist, he wrote extensively on Arab oil, economic development, and manpower, teaching for many years at the American University of Beirut and taking early retirement in 1974 to work as a consultant for a number of pan-Arab and international organizations. A single chapter on Palestinian politics provides insights into his later activist work and experiences of working as a consultant with the Palestine Liberation Organization to produce an economic plan for an eventual Palestinian state. This fascinating memoir by a pioneer and major figure of the Palestinian national movement is a welcome addition to the growing literature on Palestinian life during the first half of the twentieth century as well as an account of some of the most pressing political and economic issues to have faced the Arab world for the better part of the twentieth century.

In 1989, Robert B. Oxnam, the successful China scholar and president of the Asia Society, faced up to what he thought was his biggest personal challenge: alcoholism. But this dependency masked a problem far more serious: Multiple Personality Disorder. At the peak of his professional career, after having led the Asia Society for nearly a decade, Oxnam was haunted by periodic blackouts and episodic rages. After his family and friends intervened, Oxnam received help from a psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffrey Smith, and entered a rehab center. It wasn't until 1990 during a session with Dr. Smith that the first of Oxnam's eleven alternate personalities--an angry young boy named Tommy--suddenly emerged. With Dr. Smith's help, Oxnam began the exhausting and fascinating process of uncovering his many personalities and the childhood trauma that caused his condition. This is the powerful and moving story of one person's struggle with this terrifying illness. The book includes an epilogue by Dr. Smith in which he describes Robert's case, the treatment, and the nature of multiple personality disorder. Robert's courage in facing his situation and overcoming his painful past makes for a dramatic and inspiring book.

It is long past time for the subconscious mind and the effects of subconscious clutter to be given front and center attention. The same attention should also be given to the effects of grief that has never been acknowledged, resolved, or completed. The residue of our past is imprinted and stored in the body and subconscious mind, and has shaped our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world around us. It is my heartfelt belief that the root causes of a significant number of the physical, mental, and emotional dis-eases that thousands of people endure each day originate in the subconscious. Starting in the womb, and on through childhood, adolescence, and adulthood our subconscious mind and the cells of our body have been “recording” the words and experiences we have encountered. These words and experiences imprinted on our subconscious mind have played a significant role in the formation of mental blocks, habit patterns, and beliefs that are now shaping our lives. It has been estimated that at least ninety per cent of what is referred to as our “mind” is the subconscious mind. That is a vast and fertile area below our conscious awareness that has, and continues to, record all that is happening to us and around us every single day of our lives. Our unconscious mind and the cells of our body are holding an enormous amount of emotional memory that we are not consciously aware of, and is impacting our lives every day. Every person on earth experiences multiple losses throughout her/his life, and some losses are small while others are large. These losses start early in life and continue throughout our life. Each time we experience a loss we will grieve to one degree or another, and the majority of the time there will be some things that are left unfinished, unresolved, or incomplete. When we experience the death of someone we love, a divorce, or breakup of a relationship, there will be much we wish had been different. The residue of each loss builds on the previous loss. So, the grief we feel is compounded and complicated by the previous losses we have experienced. When we suffer a significant loss, the subconscious clutter of our past will deeply impact the grief we feel surrounding the present loss. The grief we are feeling due to the present loss will resonate and awaken a variety of past subconscious memories. It could be memories of long forgotten feelings from previous loss, forgotten feelings of abandonment, mistreatment, or any number of other emotional or mental wounds suffered long ago. The impact of our subconscious mind and grief that was never resolved, cannot, and should not, be underestimated. What is the relationship between the subconscious and prolonged anxiety, or depression, or insecurity, or a variety of physical ailments? Are we experiencing depression, anger, or anxiety because we are still grieving a loss from long ago that we thought we had “gotten over”? Is our grief more prolonged and intense because we are already angry, depressed, or chronically anxious due to a forgotten past wound that is still thriving in our body and subconscious? Are we angry, guilt ridden, or depressed because we have an addiction, or do we have an addiction because we are angry, guilt ridden, or depressed about something that happened long ago and cannot be consciously remembered? Is something that happened years ago still exerting a toxic influence on our lives today? Most people tend to ignore the signs of emotional or mental pain, and too often, even physical pain. If we do not ignore the pain, we put a band-aid of some sort over the wound so we can” keep on keeping on”. Consequently, in one form or another, adults will pass on to their children, the indignities, pain, criticism, or judgment that was inflicted on them. The pain is perpetuated from one generation to the next. Most adults are not consciously trying to pass on their pain, disappointment
