Gettysburg's houses of worship, college lecture rooms, and homes witnessed the agony of wounded and dying soldiers and the exhaustion of surgeons and nurses. Rea Andrew Redd's Altars to Amputations: From Gettysburg Churches to Battlefield Hospitals: A History and Walking Tour shares the story of young boys and girls, their parents, Catholic priests and nuns, and Protestant pastors and their congregations who united in one giant effort to save lives with their voluntary service in a public health disaster none could have been imagined before July 1863.Redd's accessible study is the first of its kind and designed to invite you into a different slice of the Gettysburg story, introducing people and places few if any students know much if anything about. Walk with him through Gettysburg and visit 14 different churches and school buildings, each of which holds unique stories of the lives and experiences of the saviors and sufferers alike.Meet, for example, the Huber family. Dr. Henry Huber, his wife Priscilla, and their children lived on Chambersburg Street. Their son Frederick, a Federal infantry sergeant, had been killed outside Richmond, Virginia at the Battle of Fair Oaks on May 31, 1862. Dr. Huber made the sad journey to Virginia, retrieved his son's body, and buried him in Gettysburg's Evergreen Cemetery, where a Confederate shell smashed his gravestone. Henry worked as a contract surgeon at the Lutheran Seminary hospital alongside his second son, John, who worked as a nurse.The mini-tours in Altars to Amputations include street fighting during the Federal retreat through the borough, an examination of the lives of African Americans and their church and cemetery, and women such as Elizabeth Thorn, Virginia Wade, Sally Myers, and the Foster, McCreary, and Buehler families.Redd, is an authority on the Civil War and the host of Civil War Librarian, a popular blog. This work includes 14 walking tour stops, 22 history notes about the buildings you walk past, and dozens of others about medicine, the battle, the troops, and much more. This is one Gettysburg book that is entertaining, enlightening, and easy to read.

Originally published in 1986, this new edition returns to print a classic, influential work of American fiction. "My Amputations, Clarence Major's fifth novel, is an explosively rich book about a man pursued by his shadow. Its protagonist is either a desperate ex-con who has become convinced that he is an important American novelist or a desperate American novelist who has become convinced that he—and most of what passes for literary life on three continents—is a con. Clarence Major has split the difference between Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man and Herman Melville's The Confidence Man to produce this dark, funny tale about the great American hustle." —Denise Levertov, Robert Haas, Jonathan Galassi, Sandra Cisneros (Jurors, Western States Arts Foundation, 1986 Western States Book Award for Fiction) "My Amputationsis a provocative advance in contemporary American writing. This novel should do much to make the name Clarence Major a byword among aficionados of adventurous fiction everywhere." —The Washington Post Book World "My Amputations is a feat of wizardry, a book possessed by freewheeling abandon." —Chicago Tribune

Caution: Contains incidents of insane motorcycle antics, drug use and swearing. 'Boris has more fun on two wheels than should be legally possible.' - Richard Fidler, ABC His mother may not know it but Boris Mihailovic has lived a fast, furious, often politically incorrect life chasing the epiphanies of speed (the sensation not the drug). For Boris, motorbike riding was the rite of passage into manhood he'd been searching for. Now, nearly 40 years since he first rode a bike, the wisdom of age has provided the perspective for Boris to look back and realise some pretty wild shit went down. At the Altar of the Road Gods is about popping your motorcycle-buying cherry with an XJ650 Yamaha. It's about fines, feuds and fractures, high-sides, tank-slappers, angry police, even angrier young men, crashing, getting up, cranky girlfriends, riding faster, outlaws, and partaking in copious amounts of alcohol and drugs. It is about mateship and motorcycles. Ultimately, it is about four decades of two-wheel-related mayhem. Just don't tell Boris's mum! Be warned: may cause laughter, sleeplessness and the desire to buy a Lucifer-black Katana.

Declining Western Development Hinges on Human Suffering: Developing Countries Cautioned From Copying The Entire Model. The observations in this book about Capitalism are not in comparison to other economic models, but on its own merits that need no such comparison to appreciate. Many have questioned the fairness and the skewedness of wealth distribution in Capitalism, but have been dismissed by the so called winners when they say, ”it’s the best that we have.” On this I would say, if you were stranded in sea it would be imprudent to quench your thirst with the best there is. You should focus on how to make the best available water safe to drink. The best we have does not mean that it’s the best there can ever be. The debate about some Capitalism failures always becomes divisive as most people think that the remedy is socialistic and communism-like and cold war hangovers don’t help.

The theme is of boyhood and growth instead of manhood and decay. The hero, Mark Lidderdale, is the son of a parish priest in London, one of the martyrs of the ritualistic controversy of the eighties. His own education for the priesthood through the Catholic Movement in the Church of England is the substance of the book, which is but an overture to The Parson's Progress.

A profound and timely examination of the moral underpinnings of the War Between the States The Civil War was not only a war of armies but also a war of ideas, in which Union and Confederacy alike identified itself as a moral nation with God on its side. In this watershed book, Harry S. Stout measures the gap between those claims and the war’s actual conduct. Ranging from the home front to the trenches and drawing on a wealth of contemporary documents, Stout explores the lethal mix of propaganda and ideology that came to justify slaughter on and off the battlefield. At a time when our country is once again at war, Upon the Altar of the Nation is a deeply necessary book.

It was a magnificent evening, in balmy June, on the far-famed St. Lawrence.The steamer "St. Lawrence" was making her nightly search-light excursion down the bay, laden to her utmost capacity.The passengers were all summer tourists, light of heart and gay of speech; all save one, Hubert Varrick, a young and handsome man, dressed in the height of fashion, who held aloof from the rest, and who stood leaning carelessly against the taffrail.The steamer was making its way in and out of the thousand green isles, the great light from the pilot-house suddenly throwing a broad, illuminating flash first on this and then on that.As the light swept across land and water from point to point, Varrick lightly laughed aloud at the ludicrous incidents, such as the sudden flashing of the light's piercing rays on some lover's nook, where two souls indulging in but one thought were ruthlessly awakened from sweet seclusion to the most glaring publicity, and at many a novel sight, little dreaming that at every turn of the ponderous wheels he was nearing his destiny.

Long cloaked in protective secrecy, demonized by Western society, and distorted by Hollywood, Santería is at last emerging from the shadows with an estimated 75 million orisha followers worldwide. In The Altar of My Soul, Marta Moreno Vega recounts the compelling true story of her journey from ignorance and skepticism to initiation as a Yoruba priestess in the Santería religion. This unforgettable spiritual memoir reveals the long-hidden roots and traditions of a centuries-old faith that originated on the shores of West Africa. As an Afro-Puerto Rican child in the New York barrio, Marta paid little heed to the storefront botanicas full of spiritual paraphernalia or to the Catholic saints with foreign names: Yemayá, Ellegua, Shangó. As an adult, in search of a religion that would reflect her racial and cultural heritage, Marta was led to the Way of the Saints. She came to know Santería intimately through its prayers and rituals, drumming and dancing, trances and divination that spark sacred healing energy for family, spiritual growth, and service to others. Written by one who is a professor and a santera priestess, The Altar of My Soul lays before us an electrifying and inspiring faith–one passed down from generation to generation that vitalizes the sacred energy necessary to build a family, a community, and a strong, loving society.

Together, and for the first time in any language, the 24 essays gathered in these volumes provide a composite picture of the history of religion in ancient China from the emergence of writing ca. 1250 BC to the collapse of the first major imperial dynasty in 220 AD. It is a multi-faceted tale of changing gods and rituals that includes the emergence of a form of “secular humanism” that doubts the existence of the gods and the efficacy of ritual and of an imperial orthodoxy that founds its legitimacy on a distinction between licit and illicit sacrifices. Written by specialists in a variety of disciplines, the essays cover such subjects as divination and cosmology, exorcism and medicine, ethics and self-cultivation, mythology, taboos, sacrifice, shamanism, burial practices, iconography, and political philosophy. Produced under the aegis of the Centre de recherche sur les civilisations chinoise, japonaise et tibétaine (UMR 8155) and the École Pratique des Hautes Études (Paris).
