This is a meticulous and energetic synthesis that has the hallmarks of Levine's scholarship: narrative cogency, attention to gender and sexuality and broad geographical sweep. For those convinced that the British Empire was acquired in a 'fit of absence of mind', this is a carefully plotted and empirically grounded rejoinder. Antoinette Burton, Catherine C. and Bruce A. Bastian Professor of Global and Transnational Studies, The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign This is an excellent history. I am very impressed by its breadth, its readability, and the strong narrative that is produced of the rise and fall of the British Empire... The story is so complex that it is a triumph to make it so accessible. Professor Catherine Hall, University College London Violent, powerful, vast: the British Empire affected everyone who lived within its sphere. Colonialism's impact could be felt in every aspect of life: food, language, work and education. The empire is typically viewed as distant and tropical; by contrast, this book examines the effects of the empire on men, women and children across the globe: both those under imperial rule and those who implemented it. Looking beyond politics and diplomacy, Philippa Levine combines a traditional approach to colonial history with an investigation of the experience of living within the empire. Spanning the period from Cromwell's rule to decolonization in the late twentieth century, and including an extensive chronology for ease of reference, Levine considers the impact of British rule for people in Africa, India and Australia, as well as for the English rulers, and for the Welsh, Scots and Irish who were subject to 'internal colonialism' under the English yoke. Imperialism often led to serious unrest; Levine examines the cruel side of imperialism's purportedly 'civilizing' mission unflinchingly. Comprehensive, subtle and innovative, "The British Empire: Sunrise to Sunset" tells the human story of colonialism alongside the political drama. Philippa Levine is a professor at the University of Southern California. She has written and edited several books, including "Gender and Empire" (2004), "Prostitution, Race and Politics: Policing Veneral Disease in the British Empire" (2003), "Women's Suffrage in the British Empire "(2000) and "Feminist Lives in Victorian England "(1990)."

Luminous, passionate, expansive, an emotional tour de force Sunset Park follows the hopes and fears of a cast of unforgettable characters brought together by the mysterious Miles Heller during the dark months of the 2008 economic collapse. An enigmatic young man employed as a trash-out worker in southern Florida obsessively photographing thousands of abandoned objects left behind by the evicted families. A group of young people squatting in an apartment in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The Hospital for Broken Things, which specializes in repairing the artifacts of a vanished world. William Wyler's 1946 classic The Best Years of Our Lives. A celebrated actress preparing to return to Broadway. An independent publisher desperately trying to save his business and his marriage. These are just some of the elements Auster magically weaves together in this immensely moving novel about contemporary America and its ghosts. Sunset Park is a surprising departure that confirms Paul Auster as one of our greatest living writers.

Scientists estimate that this "rather rare beast" in northern Arizona first erupted in A.D. 1064, and then on and off for a century and a half. Cinders from the final eruption, rusty red from the iron they contain, give the cone a distinctive sunset glow, hence the name.

Pull up a lounge chair and have a cocktail at Sunset Beach – it comes with a twist. Drue Campbell’s life is adrift. Out of a job and down on her luck, life doesn’t seem to be getting any better when her estranged father, Brice Campbell, a flamboyant personal injury attorney, shows up at her mother’s funeral after a twenty-year absence. Worse, he’s remarried – to Drue’s eighth grade frenemy, Wendy, now his office manager. And they’re offering her a job. It seems like the job from hell, but the offer is sweetened by the news of her inheritance – her grandparents’ beach bungalow in the sleepy town of Sunset Beach, a charming but storm-damaged eyesore now surrounded by waterfront McMansions. With no other prospects, Drue begrudgingly joins the firm, spending her days screening out the grifters whose phone calls flood the law office. Working with Wendy is no picnic either. But when a suspicious death at an exclusive beach resort nearby exposes possible corruption at her father’s firm, she goes from unwilling cubicle rat to unwitting investigator, and is drawn into a case that may – or may not – involve her father. With an office romance building, a decades-old missing persons case re-opened, and a cottage in rehab, one thing is for sure at Sunset Beach: there’s a storm on the horizon. Sunset Beach is a compelling ride, full of Mary Kay Andrews' signature wit, heart, and charm.

The greatest fear known to man is not the fear of receiving something dreadful, but of losing something beautiful. The Lost Sunset is not just a Love story, its a story about Love, told by three unlikely narrators, all of which must be discovered by the reader. The book tells the story of a man named James and a girl named Destiny, using them both as tools to illustrate the philosophies of Love and life. When James and Destiny meet, it seems as though both will finally find what they had each been looking for; but because of Jamess past, and Destinys present, circumstance becomes very circumstantial. Tragedy will also befriend James, changing his life forever. It's only through his interaction with a very mysterious girl that James is able to break out of his confused state. It is only with her, that we will see if James is able to let go of the past, accept the present, and build his future. The only question is whether or not any part of that will include Destiny.
