  • ISBN : 0451185196
  • Reader Reviews : 16
  • Genre : Fiction
  • From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Penn Cage series comes a gripping World War II thriller that “vaporizes almost every cliché about the limits of the genre...[it’s] good enough to read twice”(Kirkus Reviews). It is January 1944—and as Allied troops prepare for D-Day, Nazi scientists develop a toxic nerve gas that will repel and wipe out any invasion force. To salvage the planned assault, two vastly different but equally determined men are sent to infiltrate the secret concentration camp where the poison gas is being perfected on human subjects. Their only objective: destroy all traces of the gas and the men who created it—no matter how many lives may be lost...including their own.

    Shades of Black
  • Author : William E. Cross
  • Publisher : N.a
  • Pages : 296
  • ISBN : 087722949X
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Psychology
  • In this controversial and path-breaking book, William E. Cross, Jr., presents the diversity and texture that have always been the hallmark of Black psychology. Shades of Black explodes the myth that self-hatred is the dominant theme in Black identity. With a thorough review of social scientific literature on Negro identity conducted between 1936 and 1967, Cross demonstrates that important themes of mental health and adaptive strength have been frequently overlooked by scholars, both Black and White, obsessed with proving Black pathology. He examines the Black Power Movement and critics who credit this era with a comprehensive change in Black self-esteem. Allowing for a considerable gain in group identity among Black people during this period, Cross shows how, before this, working and middle class, and even many poor Black families were able to offer their progeny a legacy of mental health and personal strength that sustained them in their struggles for political and cultural consensus. Author note: William E. Cross, Jr., is a psychologist and Associate Professor in the Africana Studies and Research Center of Cornell University.

Some of its residents go about their lives just as everyone else does, but there is one startling difference - they are practitioners of the Dark Arts. These people have extraordinary powers. They can cast spells, hex their enemies, compel others to do their bidding and even kill those whom they wish to harm. Many of the city's founders came from Haiti. One brought an ancient relic - a mystical object called the Black Cross that once belonged to Christopher Columbus. There were rumors it was a voodoo artifact, one that could prolong life for centuries. That cross disappeared hundreds of years ago. Brian Sadler hears an intriguing story from an old friend in New Orleans - a tale that could reveal the whereabouts of the cross. His friend enlists Brian to go to Haiti and Guatemala, where he encounters two Americans - an old man and a child - who are conducting a seminar on rejuvenation. Hidden in a cavern, Brian watches a secret ceremony and learns a shocking truth. Desperate people will risk anything to possess the ancient relic and access its powers. Brian soon discovers that neither friends nor enemies are what they seem. His search for the fabled Black Cross of Columbus becomes a race to save his own life in the shadowy world of voodoo.

To even the balance of power, the headmaster of the Black Cross enlists the help of The Ronin of Belmont. Together they may win or lose; even Ken himself is unsure of which. Even so, one thing is for certain: When Ken's adoptive father discovered him washed ashore at the foot of his beachside cottage in Belmont City, never could he have dreamed that the child would one day grow to become an unvanquished warrior with the potential to save the human race.

    THE ROSE CROSS MEDITATION
  • Author : RUDOLF STEINER
  • Publisher : Rudolf Steiner Press
  • Pages : 186
  • ISBN : 9781855845282
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Enlightenment
  • The Rose Cross meditation is central to the western – Rosicrucian – path of personal development as presented by Rudolf Steiner. Steiner repeatedly referred to the meditation as a ‘symbol of human development’ that illustrates the transformation of the human being’s instincts and desires. These work unconsciously in the soul, and in thought, feeling and will. Through personal development, the ‘I’ – the essential self – can gain mastery over these unconscious forces of the soul. The Rose Cross meditation features the red rose as an image to which the student, via specific means, aspires. To the plant is added the black cross which, pointing to the mystery of death and resurrection, provides a symbol of the higher development of the human I. The metamorphosis of the roses and the cross into the symbol of the Rose Cross is brought about by the student’s inner efforts, creating an entirely new image. This becomes the starting point for further steps along the meditative path. The Rose Cross meditation is the only pictorial meditation whose content and structure Steiner described in such detail. In this invaluable book, the editor has drawn together virtually all Rudolf Steiner’s statements on the subject, arranging them chronologically within the motif of each chapter. His words are supported by commentary and notes.

  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • The British campaign in the Low Countries in 1813-14 in support of the Dutch revolt against the French is one of the lesser-known campaigns of the Napoleonic Wars, but one which the great historian of the British Army Sir John Fortescue wrote that it was impossible to understand the Waterloo campaign without a knowledge of. The book deals with all aspects of the campaign, from grand strategy, with the proposed marriage alliance between the House of Orange and the House of Hanover, to tactical analysis of the battles and sieges that took place, including the disastrous attack on Bergen-op-Zoom, where heroic British soldiers paid with their lives for their commanders' failures . The problems of co-operation between the British and Prussians described here foreshadowed those which would affect Wellington in 1815. Illustrated with contemporary portraits, plans of the fortifications of Bergen and eight maps.

  • The story about the young German pilots of the First World War, some of who became household names for both the German population and to many of those they pitted their skills against. Their photographs appeared on "Sanke" postcards which were sold to the public giving them a film star-like status. Many of the pilots who rose to national and international fame became increasingly bitter and disillusioned at the growing ineptitude of their generals. They continued to fall in combat; the legendary Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, was shot down and killed at only 25 years old. A small number of these "Knights" survived the war. Some were to die between the wars by murder, revolution or accident. Others were to fight again during the Second World War for the Third Reich, among them the notorious Hermann Goering.

  • Genre : Religion
  • This book frames the Church of England's missionary outreach to Aboriginal people within the reality of frontier violence, government control, segregation, and neglect. As missionary control diminished, Aboriginal people responded more overtly and autonomously. Some regarded "white" Christianity as irrelevant while others adopted it in culturally satisfying ways. Through the Australian Board of Missions (ABM), the Church of England sought to convert Aboriginal people into a Europeanized compliant sub-caste. The separation of children from their families was the first step. The book also shows how the ABM found itself increasingly embroiled in emerging broader social issues and changing government policies, requiring it to rethink its own policies.

  • Baltimore's Two Cross Keys Villages is about two communities virtually next door to one another. As one was dying, the other was born. Cross Keys Village (named after a nearby inn) was established by African Americans in north Baltimore. Forty years ago, in a surprise rush to urban renewal, the city condemned and tore down most of the homes to make room for a high school parking lot. Author Jim Holechek interviewed many of the former residents of the old Cross Keys Village to learn what life was like in their disappearing enclave. The Village of Cross Keys (named after the village that was named after the inn) was begun by developer James Rouse in 1961 when he purchased Roland Park's exclusive golf course. He was called the "Sunday School teacher with a Midas touch" and became America's premier builder of new towns and shopping malls. In Baltimore's Two Cross Keys Villages, you'll learn about the tapestry of other hamlets and other people, of "The Falls Road," Mt. Washington, Bare Hills and Ruxton, an 1835 log chapel and a woman who carries on the heritage of the slave Tobias.
