Set both in the present and in the dust-laden reaches of Angola in 1976, Buried in the Sky is an album of stories about men and women and war. To the strains of the music of Bob Dylan and in long periods of boredom and inactivity, South Africa's soldiers tried to make sense of a war they could not see. Rick Andrew, himself a conscript at that time, allows his comrades to tell their stories. We get to know Manie Dippenaar, whose hunting trip threatened to turn into an international incident; Private Smith, the boy from the Bluff who had Love and Hate tattooed on his knuckles and chose a novel way to roast a chicken as his means of revenge on a bad tempered major; Morphine Sister, who handled a gun like a mamba; and Spek, the surfer-boy who dreamed only of catching the next big wave. Poignant, funny and dramatic, Buried in the Sky will strike a chord with anyone whose life has been tarnished by war and especially those who found themselves on 'the border'.

Poetry. "Of light, flesh and the sheen of daily life, these poems speak with eloquence, and exquisite measured grace-then a wind from another world sweeps through these crafted moments and we plummet into strong and strange blue depths where the natural world crosses and recrosses into the sacred"-Judyth Hill.

Four Warring States texts discovered during recent decades challenge longstanding understandings of Chinese intellectual history. The discovery of previously unknown philosophical texts from the Axial Age is revolutionizing our understanding of Chinese intellectual history. Buried Ideas presents and discusses four texts found on brush-written slips of bamboo and their seemingly unprecedented political philosophy. Written in the regional script of Chu during the Warring States period (475–221 BCE), all of the works discuss Yao’s abdication to Shun and are related to but differ significantly from the core texts of the classical period, such as the Mencius and Zhuangzi. Notably, these works evince an unusually meritocratic stance, and two even advocate abdication over hereditary succession as a political ideal. Sarah Allan includes full English translations and her own modern-character editions of the four works examined: Tang Yú zhi dao, Zigao, Rongchengshi, and Bao xun. In addition, she provides an introduction to Chu-script bamboo-slip manuscripts and the complex issues inherent in deciphering them.

God has blessed Rachel Wilkes with a gift: she can hear your unspoken thoughts, your dreams, your desires, and feel what you feel. Living in a Puritan society where individuality is suspect and forbidden, Rachel is forced to hide her special difference. If she is discovered, she could be condemned for witchcraft and burned at the stake. Though forced to hide her special difference, Rachel refuses to give it up. For many years, she can truly be herself only with Jeannie, her devoted cat companion, who also can hear Rachel. Convinced she is alone with her gift, she stumbles upon people from far away who also hear. They come from a distant world she cannot fathom. Just as the people of her town would fear her unique power, Rachel would be terrified of the aliens strange differences. In a devastating act of Nature, Rachel loses her family, and she is lonelier than ever. Ostracized, shunned as a witch, she fears for her life as well as for Jeannies. When Jeannies life is threatened, Rachel must reveal her powerful gift to save her dearest companion. Before she can find a home where she can truly love and be loved for all she is, even her differences, Rachel must learn to love the alien man who is so much like her, yet frighteningly different. In her turn, she must accept and embrace someone else who is different.

As the Sky Darkened: The Untold Story of Biafra the Homeland gives a vivid narrative of the war that took place in Nigeria in the second part of the twentieth century. It recounts the events that preceded the war and culminated in the widespread massacres that targeted the Igbo tribe of Southeastern Nigeria and the Igbo west of the Great River Niger. The novel provides a lucid account of effort at the extermination of these people, which supports the allegation of attempted genocide of Igbos. It started in the north of the country and spread all over the country; this made the Igbo declare their own nation, their homeland, Biafra. That declaration provoked an all-out war against that young state, and the novel incorporates the wholesale destruction of life carried out by the Nigerian Army. The conflict dragged out for three long years, during which time unimaginable bombing, shelling, murder, rape, and abduction of women and girls were carried out by the invading army. Hunger was used as a weapon of war, and children, the elderly, and many more lost their lives from hunger and starvation. Lamentably, the novel recounts that the new nation, poorly equipped and ill prepared for such a protracted war, lost the war at the end of three years. It sadly concludes that after the three long years of suffering and untold anguish. With a loss of about two million Igbo civilians, they were forced back in Nigeria. After the war, life of the Igbos continued to be hard. They still felt disliked, unwanted, and unhappy for nothing they had done wrong.
