Khorramshahr, Iran, May 1982—It was the bloodiest battle of one of the most brutal wars of the twentieth century, and Najah, a twenty-nine-year-old wounded Iraqi conscript, was face to face with a thirteen-year-old Iranian child soldier who was ordered to kill him. Instead, the boy committed an astonishing act of mercy. It was an act that decades later would save his own life. This is a remarkable story. It is gut-wrenching, essential, and astonishing. It’s a war story. A love story. A page-turner of vast moral dimensions. An eloquent and haunting act of witness to horrors beyond grimmest fiction, and a thing of towering beauty. More importantly, it is a story that must be told, and a richly textured view into an overlooked conflict and misunderstood region. This is the great untold story of the children and young men whose lives were sacrificed at the whim of vicious dictators and pointless, barbaric wars. Little has been written of the Iran-Iraq war, which was among the most brutal conflicts of the twentieth century, one fought with chemical weapons, ballistic missiles, and cadres of child soldiers. The numbers involved are staggering: —All told, it claimed 700,000 lives—200,000 Iraqis, and 500,000 Iranians. —Young men of military service age—eighteen and above in Iraq, fifteen and above in Iran—died in the greatest numbers. —80,000 Iranian child soldiers were killed, mostly between the ages of sixteen and seventeen. —The two countries spent a combined 1.1 trillion dollars fighting the war. Rarely does this kind of reportage succeed so power- fully as literature. More rarely still does such searingly brilliant literature—fit to stand beside Remarque, Hemingway, and O’Brien—emerge from behind “enemy” lines. But Zahed, a child, and Najah, a young restaurateur, are rare men—not just survivors, but masterful, wondrously gifted storytellers. Written with award-winning journalist Meredith May, this is literature of a very high order, set down with passion, urgency, and consummate skill. This story is an affirmation that, in the end, it is our humanity that transcends politics and borders and saves us all.

Even as they produce food for society and its people, lives dependent on agriculture are barely able to make ends meet. The cost of food production far outweighs the returns; the peasantry is falling prey to indebtedness, both institutionalized and non- institutionalized. It is facing the severest of challenges, with even dalit landless labourers becoming victims of indebtedness and succumbing to suicide, Based on a study done in eight districts of the Malwa region of the Punjab, this book uses quantitative data along with field work, narratives and interviews with peasant unions. Over136 families have been interviewed where women as wives and mothers of the deceased speak of the aftermath of the suicide. The book outlines the distress borne by the family, including women, the children and the elderly in the aftermath of peasant suicides. By doing so, it interrogates the split between public and private; production and social reproduction; work and family. It highlights the determining character of capitalist-intensive agriculture in today's crisis times by focusing on women's reality and renewed hardships in a caste, class and patriarchal society.

DescriptionThis is a collection of short stories, poems and essays which chart a journey through the counter-culture, regular hospitalizations, psychosis, depression and addictions. But not only my own, it includes essays on others who had a similar voyage e.g. Beat poet: Elise Cowen who died age 29 unpublished and is now recognized as a major poet in that genre and on the beliefs which both created conflict with the system but also had the capacity to sustain throughout. About the AuthorHe was born in 1959. Home was troubled and he run away to London age 13, lived in the 'counter-culture' in various well organized squats. Became ill after about 9 months and was placed in the Care of the local council. Then fostered to a radical academic couple, although that didn't survive long and he went back underground; eventually being arrested in Guildford. The magistrate slapped statuary 'Care Order' on him saying 'He was in need of care and protection.' At 14 he went to live in Hollymoor Hospital in Birmingham; this would be age 14-16.He was fairly frequently restrained and given injections of chlorpromazine. Upon discharge he lived for a short time in the 'Birmingham Settlement', but became ill and was moved to a specialist manic-depressive unit where he first had ECT, age 16. Care Order was revoked at 17 but substance abuse continued with regularly admissions to Central Hospital with psychotic episodes and would sometimes go into semi-catatonia. A 20 he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Some of the admissions were for periods of around a year. At the age 25 had specialist help with substance abuse problems and he has been 'clean' 24 years and 'dry 13 years'.

He sees a psychiatrist every three months. His body became toxic with medication in 2003 and was seriously ill physically, but is now on newer meds and is much better.

He is now 49 and unfortunately has Hep C.

The book I Shall Live and Not Die and Declare The Works of The Lord is written to glorify God, the Father of Mercies, the God of all comfort; the Son, Jesus Christ our High Priest; and the Holy Spirit who is our Comforter. This book is a testimony of how the Lord Jesus, my High Priest, delivered me from death when the enemy (Satan) attacked my body with sickness and disease. I was impressed by the Holy Spirit to use the Book of Psalms to express God's goodness and mercy toward me in my deliverance from the bonds of death. Since God is no respecter of persons, His goodness and mercy will do the same for you. Throughout the testimony, I will use the Psalms as regular dialogue as I give an account of my healing. It is my belief as you read this testimony which glorifies the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, if you have any sickness or disease in your body, you will be healed; because you will be reading the anointed Word of the Living God, which is Truth, . . . "And you shall know the Truth and it will set you free." Praying with Purpose: Guidelines, divine instructions, inspired by the Holy Spirit for the development of systematic method for daily prayer that will inspire one to commune and fellowship more with the Father through prayers that are simple, scriptural, and Christ centered.

The book's central core is an intimate account of Hasten s twenty-five year friendship with revered Israeli political leader and Prime Minister, Menachem Begin.
