Colin Dayan meditates on the connection between her personal and family history and her relationship with animals in this lyrical memoir about her upbringing in the South. Unraveling memories alongside family documents and photographs, Animal Quintet takes a raw look at racial tensions and relations in a region struggling to change while providing a disquieting picture of a childhood accessible only through accounts of the non-human, ranging from famed Southern war horses led by Civil War generals and doomed Spanish fighting bulls to the lowly possum hunted by generations of Southerners. Placing the reader in the mind's eye of a writer still grappling with her own mixed identity and unsettled past, the book is uniquely capable of transporting one's imagination across time and place, mirroring the natural behavior of remembrances with its feeling of dislocation and non-linear movement. Regional folk songs about old gray mares and possums hiding in trees intermingle with stories and confidences shared by the household's African-American nanny, enclosing the reader in a chorus composed of otherwise lost voices. Presented in a such a way that it simultaneously longs for the past and attempts to keep it at arm's length, Animal Quintet achieves a haunting, nostalgic quality rare to memoirs focused on ancestral and personal identity.

In March, 1974, an International Symposium was held at the Harmonie Club in New York to discuss a highly pertinent problem in today's research: the "Rele vance of the Animal Psychopathological Model to the Human." This meeting was sponsored by the Kittay Foundation, which brought together an outstanding group of scientists involved in widely different fields of research. This volume, it is hoped, will convey the tone of lively and cordial exchange between inter nationally renowned investigators, including Dr. I. Eibl-Eibesfeldt from Germany, Dr. Robert A. Hinde from England, Dr. Edward F. Domino from Michigan, and Dr. Pierre Pichot from France, Chairman of the Steering Committee. In his welcoming address, Mr. Sol Kittay reminded us that man has achieved remarkable control over his environment but not over himself, and he suggested that we should reexamine our ancestral origins, and search in animal behavior for clues to the understanding of normal and abnormal behavior in man.

Zawadi was right: a puny woman who was still a political armature, operating from the equally punitive Zanzibar would not have interested a mighty giant like America. There was a deeper reason for their interest in Africa in general, that went far before Zawadi's time. In a futuristic world, an extraordinary woman named Zawadi becomes the first president of a united Africa. She lives in an undated "anything goes" era during which the world is inundated by transgenic madness. Zawadi discovers that America, in cahoots with Argentinean Mafiosi, hired her best friend to try and stop Zawadi from becoming president. But their reasons are economical: vast oil deposits, caused by a shift of the earth's crust, have collected underneath Africa. Coveting this oil wealth, America wants to hasten the formation of a world government. Can Zawadi successfully lead her country through this global challenge? Replete with futuristic technologies, including laser operated pest control, and air crafts that have a capacity to stop in midair, Zawadi takes an intriguing look at a future plagued by our own twenty-first-century problems.

Five nuanced and powerful historical novels depicting the clashes among Muslims, Christians, and Jews from the Crusades to twenty-first-century London. Celebrated British-Pakistani journalist and author Tariq Ali takes a mind-expanding journey through the ages with these five acclaimed works of fiction, available now in one collection. Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree: “Ali captures the humanity and splendor of Muslim Spain” in “an enthralling story, unraveled with thrift and verve” (The Independent). For the doomed Moors, the fall of Granada and the approaching forces of Christendom bring not peace but the sword. The Book of Saladin: After Saladin reclaims the holy city of Jerusalem from the Crusaders, he turns to a Jewish scribe to record his story, which Edward Said calls “a narrative for our time, haunted by distant events and characters who are closer to us than we had dreamed.” The Stone Woman: “Ali paints a vivid picture of a fading world,” proclaims the New York Times Book Review, as a distant descendant of an exiled Ottoman courtier suffers a stroke in Istanbul, and his family rushes to his side to hear his last stories. A Sultan in Palermo: In “a marvelously paced and boisterously told novel of intrigue, love, insurrection and manipulation,” cartographer Muhammad al-Idrisi is caught between his friendship with King Roger of Sicily and the resentments of his fellow Muslims (The Guardian). Night of the Golden Butterfly: A Lahore-born writer living in London is called back to his homeland by an old friend who, at seventy-five, has finally fallen in love. “If Pakistan is a land of untold stories,” writes the New Statesman, Ali is “the country’s finest historian and critic.”

This comic, serious inquiry into the nature of art takes its technical vocabulary from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. It is ridiculous to think of poems, paintings, or films as distinct from other things in the world, including people. Talking about art should be contiguous with talking about other relevant matters.

The complete collection of Anne Perry's masterful Great War series, chronicling the fate of the Reavley family from 1914 to 1918. Perfect for fans of Pat Barker and Sebastian Barry. 1914: No Graves as Yet In the last idyllic summer of 1914, the battle lines are already drawn. But for Joseph Reavley the summer is shattered by his parents' deaths in a car accident. His brother Matthew, who works for the secret service reveals that their father, a retired MP, had discovered something sinister, but the evidence has gone missing. And it seems that their deaths may not have been accidental after all... 1915: Shoulder the Sky It is April 1915 and the world is in the bloody throes of war. Most civilians have little idea of horrors at the Front, and a young war correspondent wants to publish the truth. But then he is found dead in no-man's land - and it seems that the Germans are not responsible. For Chaplain Joseph Reavley the event has uncomfortable echoes of his own parents' tragedy, with murder and censorship the dark weapons being secretly employed behind the lines... 1916: Angels in the Gloom It's March 1916, and Joseph Reavley is on sick leave, cared for by his sister Hannah. Shanley Corcoran, an old friend, comes to visit. Corcoran confides in Joseph that he's come very close to completing an invention that will paralyse the deadly German U-boats. Soon afterwards, however, the leading scientist on that project is found murdered, and it's clear that someone has been betraying secrets to the enemy... 1917: At Some Disputed Barricade In July 1917, as the sun sets over no-man's-land, rumours of mutiny grow stronger. After the death of an officer, twelve soldiers are arrested, and it falls to Joseph Reavley to uncover the truth about their involvement. At the same time, his brother Matthew, of the S.I.S, learns of a plot to destroy the only men who can bring about lasting peace... 1918: We Shall not Sleep It's 1918, and Joseph Reavley's regiment has suffered huge losses but all hope that peace is near. Then a young nurse is savagely murdered, and Joseph vows to find her killer. Matthew, is already at the Front to meet a prisoner who claims to be able to identify the shadowy figure betraying his country. If Matthew is able to put a stop to The Peacemaker's schemes, there will be a chance for lasting peace; if he fails, then freedom and liberty could be all but a distant memory for future generations...
