Not long ago, Beaufort County, South Carolina was a quiet, sparsely populated corner of the Old South where the residents were just as likely to travel by tidal creek as they were so slog down the county s dusty, track-worn roads. Generations came and went like the tidal ebb and flow, and eventually Beaufort County like much of the Lowcountry was the site of much development, which brought changes to the face and pace of the area. Life in Beaufort County is different now, but many of the old ways have been kept alive in the county s oral histories stories that have been passed down over time, preserving the past through spoken word. Now, author and journalist Fran Marscher has captured these rich, vibrant stories for all to enjoy. Remembering the Way it Was at Beaufort, Sheldon and the Sea Islands is a collection of these priceless oral histories, which offer a glimpse of simpler times and unspoiled landscapes that cannot be found anywhere else. In their own words, the residents of old Beaufort County reveal a time when turnips and scrawny chickens substituted for legal fees among some of the clients of Grace White, the county s first female attorney; when Henry Chambers Aunt Henrietta rumored locally to be the richest woman in the world, and an Italian princess to boot stunned everyone when she brought her magnificent yacht right up the Beaufort River. And much, much more."

Not yet seventeen, Wayne Webster, along with many young men around South Africa, abruptly leaves a life of relative peace and tranquility to fulfill his obligatory military service duties during the South African Border War. He has no idea what the next two years will hold, and how they will change him forever. After undergoing the hell of basic training, Wayne was trained to perform aerial reconnaissance and radar operation; he also becomes a skilled marksman and driver. He spent time as a radar operator before becoming involved in border patrols, including Operation Protea, the South African Defense Force’s biggest operation since the Second World War. Better Than Some, Worse Than Others includes a wide range of content, from everyday life in the military to the Second Boer War and the intense tension between English- and Afrikaans-speaking South Africans as well as the racial tension in South African townships during the referendum vote to hand over power to the ANC in 1992. This fascinating personal account of the author’s teenage years in South Africa’s Air Force offers an appealing combination of first-hand experience and insights into broader cultural and historical themes. The author tells the story of the South Africa’s longest war with an awareness of the country’s deep-rooted cultural conflicts and often-traumatic history as well as an appealing touch of humor.

‘This is comparative history on a grand scale, skilfully analysing complex national debates and drawing major conclusions without ever losing the necessary nuances of interpretation.’ Stefan Berger, University of Manchester, UK Remembering the Road to World War Two is a broad and comparative international survey of the historiography of the origins of the Second World War. It explores how, in the case of each of the major combatant countries, historical writing on the origins of the Second World War has been inextricably entwined with debates over national identity and collective memory. Spanning seven case studies – the Soviet Union, Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, the United States and Japan – Patrick Finney proposes a fresh approach to the politics of historiography. This provocative volume discusses the political, cultural, disciplinary and archival factors which have contributed to the evolving construction of historical interpretations. It analyses the complex and multi-faceted relationships between texts about the origins of the war, the negotiation of conceptions of national identity and unfolding processes of war remembrance. Offering an innovative perspective on international history and enriching the literature on collective memory, this book will prove fascinating reading for all students of the Second World War.

Published in association with Lyndhurst Books of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. Remembering Jim Crow: African Americans Tell About Life in the Segregated South is the "viscerally powerful... compilation of firsthand accounts of the Jim Crow era" (Publisher's Weekly). Based on interviews collected by the Behind the Veil Project at Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies, this remarkable book presents for the first time the most extensive oral history ever compiled of African American life under segregation. Men and women from all walks of life tell how their most ordinary activities were subjected to profound and unrelenting racial oppression. Yet Remembering Jim Crow is also a testament to how black southerners fought back against the system--raising children, building churches and schools, running businesses, and struggling for respect in a society that denied them the most basic rights. The result is a powerful story of individual and community survival. Praise for Remembering Jim Crow "A 'landmark book.'" —Publisher's Weekly, "The Year in Books" "This is not just an oral history for the South, but for us all. It is a sobering reminder of the mistakes this nation has made, a hopeful reflection on how far we have come." —Kansas City Star

Remembering Sharon is a play Nick wishes did not have to be written. It is a personal story. Sharon iswas a friend, even after all these years, it is still difficult to write. Putting Sharon in the past tense is not easy. This project, talking about this project, considering this project, wondering about it, planning it, thinking about it, outlining it, and shaping it has kept Sharon in my present for many years since her death, her murder. I dont like that reality. I often wonder what her life might have been how we may have grown as friends. Would we have grown closer or drifted apart? Friends do that. I have stayed close with the rest of her family. Was that because of her murder? Did her death bond us more significantly? These things, all these things became the foundation for Remembering Sharon. How can empathy be shown? Can it be shown? Should it be shown? What is tasteful? Is that really my job as a playwright? In past works that dealt with unsolved crime, Sharon was my silent motivation. It didnt quite get the word out as forcefully as I wanted my Hall-Mills play was a Hall-Mills play. I am still OK with that. I seemed to have a knack for this kind of thing. I brought up Sharon in every interview, but good writers stuck to the main subject. I had to accept the best way to bring attention to Sharon was to write about Sharon. Remember Sharon! So with this play, I am remembering Sharon. As audiences are told very quickly, Sharon was my friend who disappeared from her home two days before her sixteenth birthday in 1982. She was found murdered in a wooded area only a few yards away from her family home. Remembering Sharon is probably not just a play; it is an experience. It is a hope for an opportunity for a community to come together to talk about this loss and perhaps bring a resolution to this unsolved murder in contemporary 2012. It may also serve as a reminder to all of us that we must take care of our loved ones and talk talk! Talk about safety and common sense issues about safety and crime prevention and a better awareness of how we can keep ourselves and children safe!

In this fascinating and sometimes disturbing book, the well-known writer Karl Sabbagh looks at psychologists' present understanding of the nature of memory, especially recollections of childhood, and how, in cases of so-called 'recovered memories', the unreliability and flexibility of memory has led to tragic consequences, destroying the lives of whole families. All of us have memories of childhood - that special trip to the fair, or impressions, such as dappled sunlight through rustling leaves seen from the pram. Some people firmly believe that they can recall scenes from the time they were babies. But what does science tell us about the nature of memory, and memories of childhood? In the first part of this book, Sabbagh begins gently with examples he has collected from many interviews of earliest memories, and goes on to look at psychologists' and neuroscientists' understanding of memory. It becomes clear that, whatever individuals might claim, memories of the first two years or so of our lives are simply not accessible to us, while later memories are fragile, yielding to suggestion and our inclination towards a neat story. All too often, our 'memory' of an event arises from what we have been told by a relative. The book then turns to darker territory. A casual remark by a child at a nursery leads to detailed and suggestive questioning of a number of children, resulting in the arrest of a teacher accused of child abuse. She was subsequently released. Some patients with eating and mood disorders undergoing therapy have come to believe, or have been led to believe by the therapist, that their problems stem from being sexually abused as a child - memories allegedly repressed and only 'recovered' under the guidance of the therapist. Such claims have again resulted in wrongful arrest, subsequently overturned, though the damage done to the families is irreparable. Sabbagh has interviewed the distinguished psychologist Elizabeth Loftus and others involved in blowing the whistle on the 'recovered memory' movement. Throughout, the book is full of quotations from interviews and extracts from transcribed interviews presented at court, making this a powerful and vivid account. While other books have been written on the dangers of the concept of recovered memory, Sabbagh here puts the story in the wider perspective of our growing scientific understanding of memory, and argues strongly for the critical role of scientific evidence in cases involving the memory of witnesses.

In a Perfect World If I had my way, mom would still be with us. We would not have had to endure somber holidays because of she was always there. She would have unwrapped presents just as we did, she would have snacked and dined on the vast amount of food just as we did, she would have laughed and smiled just as we tried to do. Mom would be healthy and full of energy. Her prescriptions finally and miraculously cured all that was ailing her. She would have started living healthier and simply started living again. She would doll herself up, partake in today's fashions, and gift the world with her presence. She would not have a bother or stress or worry. The times I remember her being happy as a lark would be all the time. Bad or sad news could not be shielded from her, but in the perfect world, unwanted news would be at a very minimum. Mom would have her cabin in the woods. She would be secluded from the bad, but would never be lonely because her children and grandchildren would visit her often. Her house would always be clean and comfortable. Her yard would be full of vibrant color from the abundance of foliage. Every luxury mom would have wanted would be at the tips of her fingers ready whenever she fancied. She would and could on a whim, style it how she pleased. And I would be there to rearrange it all whenever she liked. Mom would love to travel and go places with us. She would not tire or not feel ill so she would not feel she had to be confined to bed or within the four walls of her abode. Fragrant, mouth-watering meals would be again prepared by mom. She would find joy again in cooking. Visitors, friends and family alike, would help and also cater, and would never overstay their welcome. Together, all would relax to some good entertainment regardless of the medium. She would never be cold or hot. She would never feel pain or know a tear not brought on from anything other than joy. She would again accept our hugs, our kisses, and our conversations. I could hold her hand again. I could escort her across the street or parking lot. I could have coffee with her every day. At the completion of this project, this attempt at a tribute, I realize that much of what I recall was not necessarily good or happy. Mom did not live in a perfect world. None of us do. We got hurt and will continue to. We cause hurt and will continue to. I want to remember the vast number of positive and happy memories I have. I hope I have not strayed too far from accuracy. If I have, please don't tell me. I wonder if the man, the son, I became would please mom. I am sure that she would be happy for me. She probably would tell me something like "it's about time." I feel good inside knowing a huge part of who I am is because I had the mother I did. It would sure to be nice though to share our time with her. Those of us longing for this, instead are left with an emptiness that can never be filled. I would have my Mama-sahn back. I would pat my Sugar Booger's butt. And we all would have our rock back. Thank you all for listening.

From the colonial period through the mid-twentieth century, haciendas dominated the Latin American countryside. In the Ecuadorian Andes, Runa—Quichua-speaking indigenous people—worked on these large agrarian estates as virtual serfs. In Remembering the Hacienda: Religion, Authority, and Social Change in Highland Ecuador, Barry Lyons probes the workings of power on haciendas and explores the hacienda's contemporary legacy. Lyons lived for three years in a Runa village and conducted in-depth interviews with elderly former hacienda laborers. He combines their wrenching accounts with archival evidence to paint an astonishing portrait of daily life on haciendas. Lyons also develops an innovative analysis of hacienda discipline and authority relations. Remembering the Hacienda explains the role of religion as well as the reshaping of Runa culture and identity under the impact of land reform and liberation theology. This beautifully written book is a major contribution to the understanding of social control and domination. It will be valuable reading for a broad audience in anthropology, history, Latin American studies, and religious studies.

A THRILLING REINVENTION OF THE VAMPIRE NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF MODERN FANTASY, GEORGE R. R. MARTIN Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something’s amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York doesn’t care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh’s dilapidated fleet; nor does he care that he won’t earn back his investment in a decade. York’s reasons for traversing the powerful Mississippi are to be none of Marsh’s concern—no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious York’s actions may prove. Not until the maiden voyage of Fevre Dream does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare—and humankind’s most impossible dream.
