Born in Seattle, WA, of Japanese American parents, Jim Yoshida grew up in a skid row hotel operated by his parents. He played football at his high school and was named All-City fullback and offered a college athletic scholarship. Sadly, his father died. His mother took him and his sisters to Japan to deliver his father's ashes to the family burial plot when WWII broke out and the family had to stay in Japan. Jim was forced to serve in the Imperial Japanese Army in China. There he had many experiences and suffered terrible ordeals. When the war ended and he made it back to Japan, he learned that he had lost his U.S. citizenship. To prove his loyalty, he persuaded a US officer to let him serve illegally as a volunteer throughout the Korean War. This is Jim Yoshida's own account of 2 wars and how he regained the admiration of his fellow Americans.

This collection of essays honors Alexander Gordon McKay, one of the most respected names in Vergilian studies. Written by some of the world's leading scholars, the essays offer new perspectives on the larger Vergilian world which Dr. McKay's scholarship has so richly illuminated. The Two Worlds of the Poet focuses primarily on Vergil and Augustan literature and art, with several essays that expand the Vergilian theme and reflect the wide research interests of Professor McKay in such areas of classical studies as literature, art, architecture, painting, and sculpture. Vergil's world presents two faces, each inseparable from the other-the world which formed the poet and the world which the poet himself created--and it is proper that a volume which commemorates a scholar whose own work has elucidated both of these worlds should address itself to each. Several essays examine the poet's modus creandi--his use of the simile; his assimilation of the language and motifs of Roman comic drama; his exploitation of the rich store of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman mythological, legendary, and historical material; and his treatment of a variety of themes which touch upon the very essence of the human condition. Other essays touch upon various aspects of Vergil's material and cultural environment, enabling readers to place his created work in a broader perspective. Contributors offer new perspectives on the post-classical treatment of Vergilian themes, illustrating how the reception of Vergil varied with successive generations. The volume concludes with the reflections of the senior statesman of Vergilian criticism upon the scholar's art and mission. Vergil knew that to understand the present it was essential to break out of the narrow circle of the moment and to reach into the past, thereby affirming our own humanity and our place in the world and finding paths into the future. Vergil and his poetry create evocative connections that cut across time and place and culture, providing a glimpse at the universal human experience. The essays in The Two Worlds of the Poet explore Vergil's own struggle to find his place in the world, chronicle the pathway by which we gain entry into the world of the poet, and examine how the world of the poet has influenced and enriched our world. Robert McKay Wilhelm is a professor of Classics at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. His specialties include Latin literature, Vergilian studies, classical mythology, and Greek and Roman art and archaeology. He earned his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University. A professor of Classics at McMaster University, Howard Jones is the author of several books including Pierre Gassendi: An Intellectual Biography and The Epicurean Tradition. He received his Ph.D. from Indiana University.

Is it Fiction? Is it reality? these are the questions that will trouble the reader. I am not at all surprise with the setting of the story or the premise the writer took. Ms Correlli lived in an age where the advent of the mystics, eastern meditation and the seed of the so called New Age was in the ascendancy. I enjoyed the book thoroughly as it brings to light most of the seed form thoughts in the Jewish faith.

Jews have been well represented in the cinema industry from the beginning of the film era: behind the screen, as producers, distributors, directors, script-writers, composers, set designers; and on the screen, as Jewish actors and as named Jewish characters in the film's plot. Some of these characters are fictional; others, ranging from Rabbi Loew of Prague to Ferdinand Lassalle and Alfred Dreyfus, have a historic original. This book examines how a variety of German and Austrian films treat aspects of Jewish life, at home and in the synagogue, and Jewish interaction with fellow Jews in different cultural environments; conflicts and accommodations between Jews and non-Jews at various times, ranging from the medieval to the contemporary. The author, one of the best known scholars in film history, theory and criticism, offers the reader a rich panorama of the many Jews involved in all spheres of the cinema and who, as the author reminds us repeatedly, together with their non-Jewish contemporaries, created a great industry and new forms of art.

Psychographed by Francisco Candido Xavier and Waldo Vieira, Evolution in Two Worlds is divided into two parts. The first connects words of Christ to concepts such as the existence of the perispirit and spiritual body, the cosmic fluid, heredity, evolution and sex, nourishment in the spirit realm, and the mechanics of the mind, among others. The second part combines questions and answers related to marriage, divorce, pregnancy and abortion. The Spirit Andre Luiz combines scientific and evangelical concepts to promote a study of the evolutionary process of the being and the soul in the two realms of our existence - the material world and the spirit world - establishing an intellectual challenge to all those who practice and wish to know the Spiritist Doctrine.

Examines the origins, efficacy, legacy, and consequences of envisioning both Native and non-Native “worlds.” Beyond Two Worlds brings together scholars of Native history and Native American studies to offer fresh insights into the methodological and conceptual significance of the “two-worlds framework.” They address the following questions: Where did the two-worlds framework originate? How has it changed over time? How does it continue to operate in today’s world? Most people recognize the language of binaries birthed by the two-worlds trope—savage and civilized, East and West, primitive and modern. For more than four centuries, this lexicon has served as a grammar for settler colonialism. While many scholars have chastised this type of terminology in recent years, the power behind these words persists. With imagination and a critical evaluation of how language, politics, economics, and culture all influence the expectations that we place on one another, the contributors to this volume rethink the two-worlds trope, adding considerably to our understanding of the past and present.
