Mark Freeman argues here that hindsight--looking back over the past from the standpoint of the present--can be a profoundly important source of understanding, insight, and moral growth. Indeed, hindsight can be, and often is, a source of truth--of a sort, Freeman contends, that is only available by looking backward. Drawing on psychology, philosophy, literature, memoir, and personal experience, this engaging volume offers an insightful exploration of the role of hindsight both in discerning the truth of one's past and in crafting a good and worthy life.

By the year 2110, the world’s population driven to self-destruction, thanks to wealthy elitists, corrupt politicians and bankers, and greedy, self-serving progressives. Systemic greed and corruption within the halls of various governments and banks set in motion the engine of humanity’s downfall. These organisations have incited wars and conflicts between tribes, religions, and countries, causing horrendous deaths, pain, and suffering for billions of innocent people. Humankind is facing destruction. To combat this, six time travellers from the year 2612 emerge out of stasis with the goal of preventing a nuclear disaster set to occur in 2111. With the advantage of hindsight, they visit six key historical events. They hope to persuade people of influence to make subtle changes to their thinking and actions. If all six events can be nudged in a slightly different direction, the impending man-made destruction might be averted. Only time will tell whether the time travellers can overcome their two biggest enemies, ego and self-importance, to prevent stupid mistakes from building a critical mass of human horror and causing humankind’s extinction. In this science fiction novel, six people from the future arrive in the year 2111 seeking to prevent the destruction of humanity through intervention in key historical events.

In Hindsight Carla Whitewater, daughter of a WWII veteran blinded while serving as a pilot, tries to understand the background and events that led to the precipitous end of her childhood. Carla’s memories, conjectures, and family stories are interrupted periodically by conversations with her late father’s irreverent, insistent, and outspoken glass eye. Like soldiers throughout history, Carter Whitewater, bore the epigraph of war on both body and spirit. Courage and determination helped him overcome his disability, and with extraordinary intelligence, humor, and wit he initially appeared to be managing the difficult emotional and psychological realm of blindness. In reality, he increasingly used the anesthetizing effect of alcohol to subjugate his underlying anger and resentment about his situation. Cycles of elation and hope followed by despair and uncertainty were the continuing pattern of his life and consequently that of his family.

William F. Edmiston revises current theories of what narratologists call &"focalization&" and applies his revised theory to four eighteenth-century French memoir-novels. Hindsight and Insight contributes to our knowledge of the history and evolution of the novel by demonstrating that France's earliest novelists were already engaged in the kinds of narrative experimentation that are usually associated with modern writers. It presents an analysis of the narrative point of view in both its theoretical aspects and its practical applications. Edmiston exposes the inadequacies of current concepts of focalization and proposes a revised concept that is applicable to personal narration, one that can accommodate all the focal possibilities available to the first-person narrator. He applies this concept to four French memior-novels: Les Egarements du coeur et de l'esprit by Marivaux, Manon Lescaut by Pr&évost, and La Religieuse by Diderot.Each of these well-known novels offers a different case study and raises specific theoretical questions of selective focalization, forms of reported speech, problems of temporal ambiguity, manipulation of the reader, narratorial reliability, and cognitive privilege. Edmiston's study proposes a reading of the novels that resolves certain problems of interpretation raised by other recent studies.

We know William Shakespeare matters but we cannot pinpoint, precisely, why he matters. Lacking reasons why, we do our best to involve him in others, or involve others in him. He has been branded many times over-as Catholic, Protestant, Materialist, Marxist, Psychoanalytic, Feminist, Postcolonial, Popular, Cultural, and, even, Popular-Cultural. In many ways, Shakespeare is overwrought. Why one more 'approach' to Shakespeare? One reason is because whatever these approaches say about tragedy in particular, none of them help us to feel tragedy. Or, rather, they subordinate tragedy to something else-to considerations of, say, class, race, or gender. What these approaches manage to do is explain tragedy away. What this book does is to help us feel tragedy first and foremost-hence to perceive it better. The aim of Amir Khan's counterfactual criticism of Shakespeare's tragedies, Hamlet, King Lear, Macbeth, A Winter's Tale and Othello, then, is precisely to reanimate the tragic effect, long since lost in some deluge of explanation.

In January 1933 the author of Without Hindsight was a boy of seven and had witnessed at first hand the widespread poverty and unemployment that seemed to disappear almost miraculously when, in that same year, Adolf Hitler was elected Chancellor of the German Reich. Like so many youngsters of the time he joined the Hitler Youth, despite his father's disapproval, before embarking on the career of engineer-officer in the Kriegsmarine. The discipline and endeavour learnt during his school years were reinforced and expanded as he progressed from raw recruit to ensign serving aboard destroyers, notably the Richard Beitzen, for which ship he held particular affection. Despite their hardships, the young men, who forged close ties within their group, still made time for light relief, playing pranks whenever possible and indeed carried out the Grebat, the greatest prank ever, which all began with a 'bronze' of Hitler... From destroyers to training in submarines, Gerhard Both's career was abruptly terminated by the rapid Russian advance in January 1945, and it was on 6th of May that year when the devastating news of Germany's surrender was received. His memories of the war years remain strong, and he still retains a deep affection for the sea and for the comradeship that developed during those difficult times.
