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.

The modern world is full of temptations that can lead people not only into unhappy lives but also into the throes of addiction. Navigating the world alone is not an easy task for any of us. Why not let The Freedom to Love be a most valued companion in overcoming an addiction to a sinful life? By living your life guided by true Christian morality and spiritual principles, you can break free from temptations and have the courage to experience real love. Why study the 12 Step recovery from a Christian context? Addicts and codependents are unable to choose real love without being grounded in solid moral values. Christianity offers a purposeful commitment to a way of life that heals human wounds and rectifies the effects of sin. It promotes character, growing in the measure that the person depends on truth and grace. Devote yourself to the study and development of Christ's love and you will find the strength to break free from addiction, codependency and sinful behaviors that preclude love.

Irshad Manji's message of moral courage, with stories about contemporary reformers such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, and Islam's own Gandhi, inspire and show the way to practicing faith without fear. Irshad addresses all people, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, in this universal message about the importance of independent thought and internal strength, of love, liberty, free speech, and the pursuit of happiness. Allah, Liberty, and Love is about creating choices beyond conforming or leaving the faith, which is what Manji hears from young Muslims who write to her in frustration, whose emails, letters, and conversations are included in this book. Manji writes, "I'll show struggling Muslims how to embrace a third option: reforming ourselves." And she recounts many affecting stories from young people who have contacted her for advice on how to step out of limiting views of Islam and the restrictions they put on life, love, family, and careers.

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

Rather than see love as a natural form of affection, Love As Human Freedom sees love as a practice that changes over time through which new social realities are brought into being. Love brings about, and helps us to explain, immense social-historical shifts—from the rise of feminism and the emergence of bourgeois family life, to the struggles for abortion rights and birth control and the erosion of a gender-based division of labor. Drawing on Hegel, Paul A. Kottman argues that love generates and explains expanded possibilities for freely lived lives. Through keen interpretations of the best known philosophical and literary depictions of its topic—including Shakespeare, Plato, Nietzsche, Ovid, Flaubert, and Tolstoy—his book treats love as a fundamental way that we humans make sense of temporal change, especially the inevitability of death and the propagation of life.

As a tribute to my late father, my teachers, and all who have had a positive impact on my life, I have written this blend of stories and anecdotes about my life experiences in both Iran and America. The voices of the young and tireless freedom fighters of Iran give me the inspiration to share my own tales as well as the stories of those whose lives have touched mine. Political unrest, struggles for freedom, diverse culture, devout people, and ancient Iranian history give Love of Two Lands a unique flavor while conveying the message of appreciation and hope for democracy.
