Book Broken Sparrow  The War Within

Download or read book Broken Sparrow The War Within written by Evelyn and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2012-09 with total page 222 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Has someone ever hurt or treated you so badly that you had to beg God to help you to forgive them, and to take away the pain? Or did you ever love someone so much that everything in your life was turned and flipped upside down? Or maybe you wanted something so much, but it seemed too far out of your reach for you to even begin to think that it was possible? Life doesn't come with a book of Instructions, unfortunately. We'll be the author of most of the people we allow into our lives, business or personal. It doesn't matter how good we try to be or if we're religious enough or even faithful; there will come a time in everyone's life when they'll have to cry, rich or poor. Sometimes we'll get dealt a hand in life that we can't win, but someone else can take that same hand and annihilate their opponents. Well, for Evelyn, that hand was dealt, and someone did take it and win. The unfortunate part is, she came from within. As a child, Evelyn developed multiple personality disorder. I can't begin to tell you about all of the hurt and pain she suffered at the hands of her alters and the people who claimed to love her.

Book The War Within

Download or read book The War Within written by Don Tate and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2012-05-31 with total page 488 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: center‘...a memoir that is at once dramatic, disturbing, sexually charged, and often very funny, but ultimately a moving portrait of a man who has found the inner strength to overcome....’ - Paul Ham, international journalist and author/center This is a complex, virtuoso analysis of an Australian life written by an unabashed and unrepentant author—an acidic dissection of the role that genes and environment have in developing a person’s character, as well as a sauntering chronicle of social analysis. In turn, we follow the life of the author as he comes to terms with being a disaffected youth, a patriotic but naive infantryman in the Vietnam War, and an alienated, disabled veteran struggling with male status anxiety—apparently inexhaustible in its capacity to cause suffering. Along the way, Tate examines the dark crevices of the male psyche as he battles inner demons and the unconditional love of his beautiful Christian wife, Carole. Above all, this memoir is a celebration of the human condition and of a man with a can-do, cavalier attitude to life and his desire to rise above mediocrity. An outstanding contribution to Australia’s rich heritage of memoir.

Download or read book Some Were Burnt written by T. Dove Lourde and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2015-03-18 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Some Were Burnt is a collection of prose writings and essay-type shorts by poet T. Dove Lourde. Based on and in America, Lourde attempts to reveal and dissect what he calls the 'dystopics of the American dreamscape' and converse about them openly. Written in a self-described abstract lyrical prose, the author believes the book reads like a novel, with each topic being its own chapter that builds on and bleeds into the next, connecting topics that range from politics and religion, to celebrity obsession, censorship, Big business, immortality, and many others. Although sometimes dark, and stark, and frank in its view and outlook (the book culminates in a clash) the author believes that, like America, his book is about the hope and light found in between the cynicism, skepticism and pessimism that pervades him and his generations mindset, but to ignore the dark and the folly is to invite ruin. Some Were Burnt is a look into modern day America.

Book Chronicle of That Which Will Order Chaos

Download or read book Chronicle of That Which Will Order Chaos written by Titus Wallace and published by Page Publishing Inc. This book was released on 2021-07-12 with total page 510 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a tale that spans the beginning of time till the end of days-and beyond... Imagine for a second if Milton and Dante collaborated, and everything from "Paradise Lost" to the final battle between God and Lucifer was encompassed within that text, along with all that is implied between the heights of redemption and the circles of Hell. It is a pictograph of human nature; where we came from, how we got here, and most importantly-why we are here. I am known as keeper of the stories of time, and have much to share with thee... Due to the fact that I am not a prevalent character in this tale-I have chosen to remain unknown. I am only the narrator of this story-and although I may show up from time to time within said compilation of this tale, I prefer to remain a mysterious stranger to this universe. It all begins in a time of the Christ; when a secret pact was made between Judas and Jesus forming a tidal wave of emotion and thunder during a climatic 'behind the scenes' knowledge of Lucifer's deception from God... How a new god was forged by the two who set the stage for an answer to end the war between Light and Darkness... His name is Mӧbius Kain, (the god of truth) and when this tale concludes an empire of balance must be forged to order the chaos that coexists within our world.

Book War  Espionage  and Masculinity in British Fiction

Download or read book War Espionage and Masculinity in British Fiction written by Susan L. Austin and published by Vernon Press. This book was released on 2023-05-23 with total page 201 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'War, Espionage, and Masculinity in British Fiction' explores the masculinities represented in British works spanning more than a century. Studies of Rudyard Kipling’s 'The Light That Failed' (1891) and Erskine Childer’s 'The Riddle of the Sands' (1903) investigate masculinities from before World War I, at the height of the British Empire. A discussion of R.C. Sherriff’s play 'Journey’s End' takes readers to the battlefields of World War I, where duty and the harsh realities of modern warfare require men to perform, perhaps to die, perhaps to be unmanned by shellshock. From there we see how Dorothy Sayers developed the character of Peter Wimsey as a model of masculinity, both strong and successful despite his own shellshock in the years between the world wars. Graham Greene’s The Heart of the Matter (1948) and The Quiet American (1955) show masculinities shaken and questioning their roles and their country’s after neither world war ended all wars and the Empire rapidly lost ground. Two chapters on 'The Innocent' (1990), Ian McEwan’s fictional account of a real collaboration between Great Britain and the United States to build a tunnel that would allow them to spy on the Soviet Union, dig deeply into the 1950’s Cold War to examine the fictional masculinity of the British protagonist and the real world and fictional masculinities projected by the countries involved. Explorations of Ian Fleming’s 'Casino Royale' (1953) and 'The Living Daylights' (1962) continue the Cold War theme. Discussion of the latter film shows a confident, infallible masculinity, optimistic at the prospect of glasnost and the potential end of Cold War hostilities. John le Carré’s 'The Night Manager' (1993) and its television adaptation take espionage past the Cold War. The final chapter on Ian McEwan’s 'Saturday' (2005) shows one man’s reaction to 9/11.

Download or read book Arab Spring written by I. William Zartman and published by University of Georgia Press. This book was released on 2015-08-15 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Beginning in January 2011, the Arab world exploded in a vibrant demand for dignity, liberty, and achievable purpose in life, rising up against an image and tradition of arrogant, corrupt, unresponsive authoritarian rule. These previously unpublished, countryspecific case studies of the uprisings and their still unfolding political aftermaths identify patterns and courses of negotiation and explain why and how they occur. The contributors argue that in uprisings like the Arab Spring negotiation is "not just a 'nice' practice or a diplomatic exercise." Rather, it is a "dynamically multilevel" process involving individuals, groups, and states with continually shifting priorities--and with the prospect of violence always near. From that perspective, the essaysits analyze a range of issues and events--including civil disobedience and strikes, mass demonstrations and nonviolent protest, and peaceful negotiation and armed rebellion--and contextualize their findings within previous struggles, both within and outside the Middle East. The Arab countries discussed include Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen. The Arab Spring uprisings are discussed in the context of rebellions in countries like South Africa and Serbia, while the Libyan uprising is also viewed in terms of the negotiations it provoked within NATO. Collectively, the essays analyze the challenges of uprisers and emerging governments in building a new state on the ruins of a liberated state; the negotiations that lead either to sustainable democracy or sectarian violence; and coalition building between former political and military adversaries.
