Writing Women's Communities: The Politics and Poetics of Contemporary Multi-Genre Anthologies - book cover picture

This is an important and imaginative study of the work literary and cultural anthologies do to embody and prefigure forms of politican transformation and to represent engagement. It is an act of an "organic intellectual" in the best Gramscian senses, and makes an important intervention into the makings of Asian American, Pacific, and American studies in this strange and mongrel postcolonial/transnational moment of US remaking. This is a splendid first book, and suggests further scholarship and anthology-making on the Asian/Pacific horizon from Hawai'i.

Alexander of Macedon, 356-323 B.C.: A Historical Biography - book cover picture

Peter Green's phenomenal account of possibly the most controversial military leader in history, delivers exactly what its title suggests; a historical biography. He proves himself as one of the foremost experts regarding Alexander of Macedon, the most complex historical figure to rise from Western Civization. Green captures both the historical importance and the consequences of Alexander's achievements, while paying close attention to any information revealing his emotional and psychological nature.

The Language Instinct : How the Mind Creates Language (Perennial Classics) - book cover picture

This is a wonderful book on the linguistics; but it doesn't stop there. It puts language and its function into the context of human nature and human development. You come away with an understanding of WHY language is so important in the history of humanity.

I have often recommended this book to my students as a supplement to my textbook, A Concise Introduction to Linguistics (Bruce M. Rowe and Diane P. Levine)

The Mummies of Urumchi - book cover picture

Barber has written a wonderful, entertaining, and compelling book. One of its strengths lies in the fact that it is a perfect blend of many disciplines. Whether discussing archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, history, or her own specialty, textiles and clothing, Barber presents clear and concise points and explanations of theories. This book is exceptionally easy reading for a laymen, because she gives necessary summaries and background information of major theories and events in the sciences. It is also sufficiently detailed and exploratory enough to rivet expert attention, as this case has again aroused a lot of interest on all fronts in the Proto-Indo-European debate.An excellent read!

The Tao Speaks : Lao-Tzu's Whispers of Wisdom - book cover picture

I think it is fantastic that a book that is as enjoyable to read as the "Tao Te Ching" can be made even more so through the use of illustration and humor. Tsai Chic Chung has faithfully adopted the text and lessons of Taoism into this unassuming form ready to be enjoyed.Attributed to the great Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu, the "Tao Te Ching" has attracted generations of followers from across the world to its simple tenets of modesty, peace, and pragmatism. The most pleasant feature of this book is that it illustrates concepts clearly and cleanly. Complex issues are brought home and made familiar.

James Joyce - book cover picture

I am so happy that this hard to find book has finally received the new leash of life it so richly deserves. Ellman takes the reader on a journey, a journey into the times and life of the greatest writer of the 20th century. Get this book NOW! Just as the Beatles changed popular music forever, Richard Ellman's monumental legacy as a biographer (see also his Pulitzer prize winning Wilde bio) will never, I mean NEVER, be equalled.Question: Why would anyone else even attempt to chronicle Joyce when this book exists. BUY IT!!!

excellent autobiographical short stories

Book title: The Boys of My Youth
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Boys of My Youth - book cover picture

_The Boys of My Youth_ is a two day read (or one day, if the reader has nothing else going on) because of the way it captivates. This book, a collection of autobiographical short stories, weave together and create a beautiful and poetic novel about a woman that I could fully relate to. The vignettes involve her childhood, including pieces about her mother and aunt, her cousin, and her siblings; her teenage years with her best friend and various crushes; and her somewhat depressing adult life with a philandering husband and a tragic work occurence. I feel that my writing a short encapsulated review cannot do Beard's book justice, so I will end here with the recommendation to buy this book and prepare to be astonished.

Polgara the Sorceress (Malloreon (Paperback Random House)) - book cover picture

Yes, Polgara was written from a woman's perspective, yes there was less action. But there was a lot of humor, and, better than in all the other books, we find out what happens during those times Polgara pulled a "disappearing" act and "took care of something." The books were never really descriptive of what it was, precisely, she did. Now we find out that she was as much a sorceress as Belgarath and Beldin were sorcerers, though she may have done things in her own unique style, she still affected the world as much as the other two. I found her dealings with other woman characters especially interesting. I love the action in the other books, but sometimes, I enjoy reading something that can stand on it's own without relying on great battles or action-packed page. And yes, MORE MORE MORE. Poledra HAS GOT to be an interesting story, if only on the account that she's basically, a wolf. I wonder though, how long can this series go on?
