Together, they set out on a journey of self-discovery learning not only about themselves but also about other races and cultures. Along the way they learn to appreciate their dual heritages and promote acceptance and understanding. Even the very title 'Amalaganimals' is a fitting fusion of the words 'amalgam' (which means to combine), and 'animal'.

Throughout the centuries, frustration, disappointment, and despair on both sides has created a great divide between black women and black men. In the world of relationships, it has become increasingly difficult for black women to make an emotional, spiritual, and psychological connection with black men. For many women, they don't even know how to begin to put on a different "hat" and often find themselves saying, "Why can't I find a good black man?" The truth of the matter is, many black women are sinking and drowning, according to many black men. On the other side of the spectrum there are black men who also have a considerable amount of scar tissue to deal with, not the least of which has been black women who are deceitful, disrespectful, high maintenance, materialistic gold diggers with "get paid" mentalities. The end result is that many black men have become frustrated with black women and have also chosen to cross color lines in unbelievably large numbers. For those black men, having a strong Nubian queen by their side has become nothing more than a pipe dream they used to have. For them, dating outside their race is no longer taboo and no longer creates the innate feeling of betraying black women. Sadly, a lot of black men all over the country have lost love and respect for many black women. A lot of black men feel many black women have no idea how to love them, care for them, or nurture their men. They no longer believe that black women are good homemakers nor can they keep a peaceful home. This is an epidemic that has spread all over America. It is my sincere belief that the thoughts and ideas outlined in my book will help answer numerous questions with which black women continue to struggle regarding their relationships with men--particularly black American men, such as: Why will he bed me but not wed me? Why have many black women lost the love and respect of black men? Why are black men continuing to cross the fence in alarming numbers? Why are black men becoming more hesitant to approach black women? Are black men really intimidated by successful black women? Why are so many black men disappointed, discouraged, and frustrated with many black women? Why do many black men see black women as too difficult and too complicated to deal with? Why are some black men making a vow to never date or marry another black woman ever again? Why are many black women hitting home runs in their careers but striking out in their relationships and marriages? These are some of the questions that are answered in this book. This is why it was so important for me to write this book. I want to inform black women in America what they need to do to help restore the faith of good-quality black men. I want black women to understand that I am writing this book as a wake-up call. If I do my job well, perhaps these words will sufficiently energize the mind, heart, and soul of the amazing creation God called woman to stimulate positive behavioral change in her--or at least provoke a little thought. Now, I know I'm treading on thin ice here, but trust me when I say this book is not about bashing black women in America. It's a book about reality and truth. More often than not, most of us do not like to hear the truth because it forces us to take a good look at ourselves, blemishes and all. The old adage, "The truth hurts," could certainly apply here. However, another old adage is also applicable: "The truth shall set you free." By writing this book, I truly hope to make it easier for black men and woman to come together as one. I want black women to understand that just because many black men have lost faith doesn't mean that we have given up on you. The reality is that sometimes we need to be challenged, and this book will definitely challenge many black women in America to take an introspective look at themselves.

My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me is Boris Mihailovic's frank, fearless and fast account of a life of motorcycles, brotherhood, demons, dirt and danger. Whether you're into dirt bikes, road bikes, ride a Yamaha, scooter or Laverda: if you've ever experienced the primal rush of riding a motor bike, the pain of crashing, the suffering of healing and the epiphanies of speed, then this book is for you. My Mother Warned Me About Blokes Like Me is about friendship, treachery, girls in tight pants and motorcycles that have been possessed by Satan. It's about brotherhood, camaraderie, drugs, alcohol and being hounded by the police for daring to combine them all at once. It's about breaking the law, and racing 1000 kilometres through the night for money and thrills. It's about massive amputations, bovine stupidity, maniacal genius and the wisdom of the old. It's about chance and fate and suffering, being two people at once and being handcuffed in a Melbourne gutter. It's about being cold and crazy and hopeful and irredeemably lost. It's about impossible highs and soul-crushing lows, about demons and brothers and dirt and danger, and houses with iron bars instead of glass in their windows. Essentially it's about Boris Mihailovic's life. With motorcycles. 'His love of motorcycling, mateship and frequent, subsequent mayhem is matched by a natural writing ability that graphically, often hilariously, brings to life the two-wheeled experiences that have shaped his life... Highly recommended' - 4 x 4 Magazine 'There is no requirement to love everything on two wheels to enjoy this book but it would seriously help, as our resident bike nut said about Boris: This guy lives and breathes motorbikes. He's the epitome of two wheel freedom' - Mining Chronicle

With a new preface and updated chapters, White Like Me is one-part memoir, one-part polemical essay collection. It is a personal examination of the way in which racial privilege shapes the daily lives of white Americans in every realm: employment, education, housing, criminal justice, and elsewhere. Using stories from his own life, Tim Wise demonstrates the ways in which racism not only burdens people of color, but also benefits, in relative terms, those who are “white like him.” He discusses how racial privilege can harm whites in the long run and make progressive social change less likely. He explores the ways in which whites can challenge their unjust privileges, and explains in clear and convincing language why it is in the best interest of whites themselves to do so. Using anecdotes instead of stale statistics, Wise weaves a narrative that is at once readable and yet scholarly, analytical and yet accessible.

The groundbreaking work on being homosexual in America—available again only from Penguin Classics and with a new foreword by Dan Savage Originally published in 1971, Merle Miller’s On Being Different is a pioneering and thought-provoking book about being homosexual in the United States. Just two years after the Stonewall riots, Miller wrote a poignant essay for the New York Times Magazine entitled “What It Means To Be a Homosexual” in response to a homophobic article published in Harper’s Magazine. Described as “the most widely read and discussed essay of the decade,” it carried the seed that would blossom into On Being Different—one of the earliest memoirs to affirm the importance of coming out. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
