Messenger of the Heart: The Book of Angelus Silesius, with observations by the ancient Zen masters (Spiritual Masters), Angelus Silesius
121 Angelus Silesius Messenger of the Heart: The Book of Angelus Silesius, with observations by the ancient Zen masters (Spiritual Masters)
U.S.A. World Wisdom 2005 0941532704 / 9780941532709 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages including drawings and glossary. Johannes Scheffler assumed the name Angelus Silesius on his leaving the Lutheran church to become a Catholic. He became enmeshed in the bitter controversies of post-Reformation Europe. Soon after his death, however, his masterpiece was claimed by Protestants and Catholics alike as their mystical classic. Frederick Franck shows the poets macro-ecumenical significance in the essay that introduces his translation of these verses, and by adding a "running commentary" of sayings by the ancient Japanese and Chinese masters, with whom this Christian mystic shows a remarkable affinity.

The Auschwitz Violin, Anglada, Maria Angels
122 Anglada, Maria Angels The Auschwitz Violin
UK Corsair 2011 1921758872 / 9781921758874 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
128 pages. A beautifully written novel, translated from Spanish, that makes the reader empathise with the horrors of the Holocaust and the concentration camps very well. In the winter of 1991, at a concert in Krakow, an older woman with a marvelously pitched violin meets a fellow musician who is instantly captivated by her instrument. When he asks her how she obtained it, she reveals the remarkable story behind its origin. Imprisoned at Auschwitz, the notorious concentration camp, Daniel feels his humanity slipping away. Treasured memories of the young woman he loved and the prayers that once lingered on his lips become hazier with each passing day. Then a visit from a mysterious stranger changes everything, as Daniel's former identity as a crafter of fine violins is revealed to all. The camp's two most dangerous men use this information to make a cruel wager: If Daniel can build a successful violin within a certain number of days, the Kommandant wins a case of the finest burgundy. If not, the camp doctor, a torturer, gets hold of Daniel. And so, battling exhaustion, Daniel tries to recapture his lost art, knowing all too well the likely cost of failure. Written with lyrical simplicity and haunting beauty-and interspersed with chilling, actual Nazi documentation-The Auschwitz Violin is more than just a novel: it is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of beauty, art, and hope to triumph over the darkest adversity. Maria Angels Anglada (1930-99) was one of the most important Catalan figures of the twentieth century and one of its most prestigious and widely read authors. She was the winner of many awards and honors, including the Octavi Pellissa Prize for her book of short stories Nit de 1911.

Australia New Holland 2006 1741103681 / 9781741103687 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
255 pages. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and more. California as you've never seen it before. Award winning travel author Ann Rickard decided to take a road trip around California (with a small detour to Nevada and Las Vegas). With her husband Geoffrey they hire a car and explore the breadth and depth of this rich and fascinating American state: there's the gold country and cowboy towns, the glamour of Hollywood and the breathtaking nature of Yosemite, junk food and gourmet cuisine, the 800 miles (not kilometres) of beautiful coastline and, to the authors great relief and delight, a wine region. Ann declares at the outset that she likes America and Americans, and this is reflected in the narrative as she reveals the weird and wacky side of the Californian Dream with light-hearted insights and comical asides. Geoffrey, he of the ever-ready corkscrew, keeps a steady hand on the wheel as this road trip unravels. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and the biggest backsides on the planet. Yes, this is California, but not as you've seen it before.

Australia Random House 1990 0900882530 / 9780900882531 Soft Cover Good 12mo 
208 pages. CATS, CRADLES AND CHAMOMILE TEA is an entertaining collection of the best of Anna Maria Dell'oso's columns from the Good Weekend magazine in 1986- 87. Part philosophy, part biography, part humour but mostly expressing the joy of writing and com municating with people, the columns frankly reflect the life of an Italo-Australian woman in her mid- twenties exploring career, travel, love, babies, ter races, cockroaches, yuppie pretensions and the fate of the post-nuclear world as we know it, U.G. (Under Greenhouse). The columns have been updated and extended with the addition of new long stories. I well remember the shock, the hubbub, that passed amongst our numbers when the first writings of Anna Maria Delloso appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald... It's marvellous to see her writing again, adding to her body of work. And it's marvellous to find herthoughts between covers, instead of in the pages of the popular press where she represented such an urgent threat to my withered and cadaverous colleagues. This book Ccntains 1986-87 articles from the Good weekend magazine.

x +182 indexed pages. In 2012, Anne Summers gave two landmark speeches about women in Australia, attracting more than 120,000 visits to her website. Within weeks of their delivery Prime Minister Julia Gillard's own speech about misogyny and sexism went viral and was celebrated around the world. Summers makes the case that Australia, the land of the fair go, still hasn't figured out how to make equality between men and women work. She shows how uncomfortable we are with the idea of women with political and financial power, let alone the reality. Summers dismisses the idea that we should celebrate progress for women as opposed to outright success. She shows what success will look like. eBook available from UNSW Bookshop View the table of contents here.

A research scientist, Dr John Coulter, was Secretary of the Town and Country Planning Association of South Australia which organized the advertisement and some weeks after its appearance he was principal speaker in an edition of ABC-TVís Monday Conference. The program aroused tremendous interest and over the next two years Monday Conference programs dealing with questions of the environment and ecology provoked similar responses from a public gradually becoming aware of the implications of rapid social change, technological advances and increased use of resources. The ?ve Monday Conference programs published in this collection contain opinions from people eminent in their fields and whose views are relevant to issues which will continue, inevitably, to be issues of the seventies. The upper corner of the first leaf was cut off - no text affected though.

USA Our Sunday Visitor 2007 1592763200 / 9781592763207 2nd Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
255 indexed pages. What did the first Christians believe about the Eucharist? How did they follow Jesus' command, "Do this in remembrance of me"? How did they celebrate the Lord's Day? What would they recognize in today's Mass? The answers may surprise you.In The Mass of the Early Christians, respected author, scholar, and television host Mike Aquilina reveals the Church's most ancient Eucharistic beliefs and practices. Using the words of the early Christians themselves -- from many documents and inscriptions -- Aquilina traces the history of the Mass from Jesus' lifetime through the fourth century. That the Mass stood at the center of the Church's life is evident in the Scriptures, as well as the earliest Christian sermons, letters, artwork, tombstones, and architecture. Even the pagans bore witness to the Mass in the records of their persecutions.These legacies from the early Church bear witness to the same worship Catholics know today: the altar, the priest, the chalice of wine, the bread, the Sign of the Cross ...the "Lord, have mercy" ...the "Holy, holy, holy" ...and the Communion.

Canada Trafford Pub 2005 1412050790 / 9781412050791 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xxi + 150 pages. This book provides a thoughtful approach to some important and highly topical questions on what constitutes Australia's nationhood. It appeals to academics, public servants, students, and many members of the general public. Culture is ubiquitous. Culture is all-pervasive. Many (mainly Asian) immigrants take into white host nations strongly divergent, and historically durable, cultural stances and practices. In the migrant-receiving countries of the Western world, the core issue of a conflict between a sustained attempt by such immigrants to retain their cultures and the osmotic force of equal opportunity offering an earlier and smoother integration into the values and mores of the host people bobs up and down in the seas of social policy. Cultural diversity can therefore be de-stabilising to a hitherto cohesive society. The national identity which had evolved through the merging of culturally compatible tribes and peoples can now be seen to be threatened. Whilst this book is about Australia, the issues raised have relevance for all immigrant-receiving nations. One's culture provides the template for dealing with life. Its base is laid in childhood, through the values imposed by family and community. The cultural practices of one's tribe reinforce these values and associated perceptions. The impacts of nurture (experience) upon nature (inheritance), as one passes through life, are filtered through this network of cultural values. A conditioned belief among some in the West that a human zygote equates to a human being, contrasting with an older Asian belief that the human soul enters a baby's body at or after birth, is reflective of divergent cultural values. The need for immigrants to reconcile their inherited cultural values and associated practices with the predominant values and practices of their adopted nation-state can create stresses on both cultures. The issues which arise from this cross-cultural impact are those of: equal opportunity; whether a unified people can arise from a wide tribal diversity; individualism vs the collective (the family), ie whether the individual or the family unit has priority in terms of rights and responsibilities; the definition of family, and its role in society; cultural hegemony and political sovereignty in a globalising nation-state; the place of the Creator in modern life; and whether Australia's 'fair-go' social and policy ethos needs an infusion of Asian values.
