They baked New England's Thanksgiving pies, preached their faith to crowds of worshippers, spied for the patriots during the Revolution, wrote that human bondage was a sin, and demanded reparations for slavery. Black women in colonial and revolutionary New England sought not only legal emancipation from slavery but defined freedom more broadly to include spiritual, familial, and economic dimensions. Hidden behind the banner of achieving freedom was the assumption that freedom meant affirming black manhood The struggle for freedom in New England was different for men than for women. Black men in colonial and revolutionary New England were struggling for freedom from slavery and for the right to patriarchal control of their own families. Women had more complicated desires, seeking protection and support in a male headed household while also wanting personal liberty. Eventually women who were former slaves began to fight for dignity and respect for womanhood and access to schooling for black children.

Very few books have been written about the 100 million or more human lives that have been lost around the planet since the inception of Communism-Marxism-Leninism (and its Gulags) in 1917. With the notable exceptions of Velikovsky's "We" (1920's), Orwell's "1984" and Huxley's "Brave New World" all fiction only a handful of Czech and Cuban works have expounded the eyewitness realities of the hell that is totalitarianism, among them Milan Kundera's "The Unbearable Lightness of Being"; Vaculik's "A Cup of Coffee with my Interrogator", and Armando Valladares' "Against All Hope."Bohdan Wytwycky's "The Other Holocaust" and Miron Dolot's "Execution Through Hunger" also shed a much needed light on the barbaric and oft-forgotten, heinous crimes committed under Lenin, Stalin, (who could easily be accredited with 40 million or more deaths, just Russians and Ukrainians alone), Mao Ze Dong (50 million), Pol Pot (2 million), Fidel Castro (100,000 or more).Collectively, ten times more millions than Hitler's several million gays, Gypsies, Jews and Baltic and Slavic peoples.Along with Romania, Cuba and Czecho slovakia were the most brutal and repressive societies (Cuba is still on the very top of the list), and this book vividly documents the cloak-and-dagger, conspiratorial nature of communism while at the same time detailing the length to which the "dissidence" and basic survival instinct will go to escape the firing squad or the country at any cost.Albert De Leon's book takes us into the private life of two of his closest friends and the fear, the humiliation, the psychological torture and constant harassment to which they and 25 million Czechs and Slovaks suffered since 1948 and 11 million Cubans are still subjected to.For both Alexei and Gregorio, the only option was to escape a well-planned escape.

Between Love and Freedom interprets the figure of the revolutionary in the Hindi novel by establishing its lineage in representative Bengali novels, as well as in the contending moralities of Mahatma Gandhi and Bhagat Singh on the idea of violence. It reveals how conventional social realism and emergent modernist modes were brought together in the novelistic tradition by extending the political ideal of anti-colonial revolution into domains of sexual desire and subjective expression, especially in the works of Agyeya, Jainendra, and Yashpal. This work will deeply interest scholars and students of literature, modern Indian history, Hindi, and political science.

Originally published in 1985, four years after its author's untimely death, Love and Freedom is the unforgettable story of Rosemary Kavan, an Englishwoman whose marriage to a Czech led her to experience life in post-war Prague, from early optimistic years, through the nightmare of the Stalinist purges, up to the 'Prague Spring' and its aftermath. Her husband Pavel, a devoted communist, fell victim to the show-trials of the early 1950s and spent years in prison, dying soon after his release. Branded 'a traitor's wife', Rosemary struggled to support herself and her two sons. In the mid-1960s she became involved in the student reform movement, but the Russian invasion of 1968 came as a further cataclysm. 'An outstanding memoir.' George Steiner 'The story of a tragic disillusionment, political and personal, told with invincible humour.' Graham Greene 'The overwhelming impression left by this book is one of warmth, true comradeship, courage and hope.' Timothy Garton Ash

In life, we are all seekers on a perpetual search for love and freedom. Still, as hard as we try, sometimes the things we want most seem to be the most elusive. In a thought-provoking guide to finding love and freedom, life coach Allan Moore relies on personal experiences, ancient philosophies, and intuitive-based wisdom to help others understand and sustain love with freedom. While leading others on a spiritual journey to gain answers, Moore introduces the concept of self, reveals the source of love, explores the law of attraction, defines personal traits that can lead to failure or success, and offers suggestions on how to gain observational awareness through journaling, mindfulness, and self-reflection. Through gentle encouragement, Moore helps all of us understand that above all, love is who we really are as unique beings existing within a vast universe. Lifes Quest for Love and Freedom intertwines anecdotes with practical advice and introspective ideas that lead others down a contemplative path to attain a better life.
