Pp (8),ix-xviii,(2),1-252. Illustrations in the text. Double column. Oblong 8vo, illustrated orange, white, and black cardcovers, red and black lettering to spine. Robert Henderson Fuson (b. July 7, 1927, Bloomington, Indiana - d. October 22, 2004, Tampa Bay,Florida). "As he set sail in 1492 on the voyage that would culminate in th e discovery of the New World, Christopher Columbus resolved to "write down everything that 1 might do and see and experience on this voyage, from day to day and very carefully." True to his pledge, he kept a daily account of his adventtures, which he presented to Oueen Isabela upon his return to Spain in 1493. The Log of Christopher Columbus presents the first historicallyaccurate and readable translation / reconstruction of Columbus' famous Voy age of Discovery, based on authentic source materials. Author / translator Robert Fuson effectively combines sound scholarship with a brilliant ear for the venacular to create a lively, credible, and deeply moving rendition of Columbus' original log. The reader can follow, day by day, in Columbus' wake and share his vivid impressions of the New World, as yet untouched by European civilization. This is also the first modern translation to reflect the authoritative new landfall theories advanced by the National GeographicSociety in 1986, which place Columbus' first landing site not on Watlings Island but at Samana Cay. Fuson was a consultant to the National Geographicexpedition and has been an active participant in the landfall controversy for more than 30 years. Columbus' log itself is accommnied by a treasure trove of supplementary material on the many suggested landfalls and their proponents, medieval ships and navigation, and Columbus' own mysterious personal history. A foreword by Luis Marden, chief emeritus of the National Geographic foreign bureau as well as veteran sailor, will be of particular interest to readers who contemplate sailing in the track of Columbus. With the Quincentennial of the Discovery approaching in 1992, The Log of Christopher Columbus is more than a historical artifact; it is a profound allegory of our own times. Greed, idealism, duplicity, generosity, courage — the best and worst of the human spirit — are all here, all part of the legacy that is contemporary Western civilization. To share Columbus' original words and vision is to experience a powerful sense of déja vu, with excitement and wonder touched by deep sadness." - from inside front cover. Foreword by Luis Marden.

"In The Seeds of Freedom , Senator Al Graham recalls his formative years in the spectactulary beautiful setting of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia; a magical place of legends and myths and music, where a rich culture blends with the firece pride of the local inhabitants. It was there he acquired his lifelong commitment to the 'power of the people', and to the belief that people must be the masters of their own destinies, if they are to have any control over the circumstances oftheir lives. he has championed that belief in his work in Canada as a teac her, broadcaster, journalist, corporate executive, and Member of the Senate. He has also brought the message of democracy and empowerment to the worldstage. This is hIs moving account of the process of establishing the seeds of democratic procedures in lands far from Canada where no one thought the y would ever take hold: in Namibia, where the magical numbers 4-3-5 acquired almost supernatural significance; in Haiti, where election observers as well as voters risked their lives on election day; in the Philippines, whereven the fraud wrought by a powerful dictator could not muzzle the voice of the Philippine people; and in countless other places with equally rivettin g stories. It is an inspiring tribute to the faith and endurance of people who, against the odds, believe democracy will change their lives and society for the better." - from the dj flap. Part I.

14 HRON, Madelaine. Translating Pain : Immigrant Suffering in Literature and Culture. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 2009, ISBN:9780802099198 2009 080209919X / 9780802099198 
HRON, Madelaine. Translating Pain : Immigrant Suffering in Literature and Culture. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2009). First Edition. Pp [i]-xix,(1),[1]-300. Index. 8vo, red cloth, black lettering to spine.

“In the post-Cold War, post-9/11 era, the immigrant experience has changed dramatically. Despite the recent successes of immigrant and world literatures, there has been little scholarship on how the hardships of immigration are conveyed in immigrant narratives. Translating Pain fills this gap by examining literature from Muslim North Africa, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe to reveal the representation of immigrant suffering in fiction.

Applying immigrant psychology to literary analysis, Madelaine Hron examines the ways in which different forms of physical and psychological pain are expressed in a wide variety of texts. She juxtaposes post-colonial and post-communist concerns about immigration, and contrasts Muslim world views with those of Caribbean creolité and post-Cold War ethics. Demonstrating how pain is translated into literature, she explores the ways in which it also shapes narrative,culture, history, and politics. A compelling and accessible study, Translating Pain is a groundbreaking work of literary and postcolonial studies.” (from the dj).
