A Bond Never Broken is a critical reevaluation of Napoleon's relationship with the French literary community. It makes a new assessment of his dealings with such important figures as Mme. de Stael, Constant, Chateaubriand, and with numerous members of the press and the stage. For more than one hundred and fifty years, the predominant view among historians of all political persuasions has been that this relationship was an entirely adversarial one. While it is easy to understand how this theory developed, Michael Polowetzky demonstrates here that a true interpretation of Napoleon's actions toward the nation's literati is much more complicated. Napoleon was a man who was motivated throughout his life by a great desire for political power. At the same time, however, he was also deeply concerned with his place in history and how he would be evaluated by future generations. Napoleon wished to be remembered not simply as another political strongman, but also as a statesman who inspired and nurtured a golden age in his nation's culture, especially its literature. A great admirer of classical culture, Napoleon wished to be recalled as a modern Pericles, and desired that the France he had ruled over should be looked upon as a second Athens. A Bond Never Broken investigates how Napoleon wrestled with the task of achieving both his political ends and his wish to be a champion of literary achievement. This book makes no attempt to deny the autocratic nature of Napoleon's regime and no effort to apologize for it. Nevertheless, it will demonstrate that the Emperor's constant determination to be a champion of letters assured the preservation of some measure of free expression in all the various areas of the literary community: in fiction, academia, drama, even in the most closely controlled area - journalism. Even in the instances where literary free expression was suppressed, Napoleon's attachment to literature assured that his actions were taken with a minimum amount of force. Rather than a steadfast opponent of literature as so many have long believed, Napoleon instead possessed a great love for it. This affection was certainly one of the primary reasons the First Empire never became the model for the bloody authoritarian regimes that have so often sought to strangle the literary spirit in our own century. In a period when such issues as censorship and artistic freedom are so widely discussed, A Bond Never Broken should be of particular interest.

New York Times bestselling poet and multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jewel explores her unconventional upbringing and extraordinary life in an inspirational memoir that covers her childhood to fame, marriage, and motherhood. When Jewel’s first album, Pieces of You, topped the charts in 1995, her emotional voice and vulnerable performance were groundbreaking. Drawing comparisons to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, a singer-songwriter of her kind had not emerged in decades. Now, with more than thirty million albums sold worldwide, Jewel tells the story of her life, and the lessons learned from her experience and her music. Living on a homestead in Alaska, Jewel learned to yodel at age five, and joined her parents’ entertainment act, working in hotels, honky-tonks, and biker bars. Behind a strong-willed family life with an emphasis on music and artistic talent, however, there was also instability, abuse, and trauma. At age fifteen, she moved out and tasked herself with a mission: to see if she could avoid being the kind of statistic that her past indicated for her future. Soon after, she was accepted to the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, and there she began writing her own songs as a means of expressing herself and documenting her journey to find happiness. Jewel was eighteen and homeless in San Diego when a radio DJ aired a bootleg version of one of her songs and it was requested into the top-ten countdown, something unheard-of for an unsigned artist. By the time she was twenty-one, her debut had gone multiplatinum. There is much more to Jewel’s story, though, one complicated by family legacies, by crippling fear and insecurity, and by the extraordinary circumstances in which she managed to flourish and find happiness despite these obstacles. Along her road of self-discovery, learning to redirect her fate, Jewel has become an iconic singer and songwriter. In Never Broken she reflects on how she survived, and how writing songs, poetry, and prose has saved her life many times over. She writes lyrically about the natural wonders of Alaska, about pain and loss, about the healing power of motherhood, and about discovering her own identity years after the entire world had discovered the beauty of her songs.

As the composer of some of Ireland’s best-loved songs, not to mention a host of global hits, Phil Coulter has been a mainstay of Irish cultural life for decades. But this is a position that has been hard won, often in the face of extraordinary personal and political upheaval, most of which has, to date, been kept hidden from public view. Heartfelt and wry, meditative and entertaining, Bruised, Never Broken is the story of the author’s remarkable rise from modest beginnings on the streets of post-war Derry to the summit of the global charts, as a composer and confidante to a host of the era’s biggest stars, such as Van Morrison, Luke Kelly, Cliff Richard and Sandie Shaw. Poignantly, it is also a hymn to the place that made him, a city as complex and troubled throughout Ireland’s middle decades as any on Earth, yet a source of constant inspiration and consolation.

When she was six-years-old, Iman Gatti witnessed the tragic death of her mother. This began a journey in which her childhood and culture were stripped away from her only to be replaced by a decade of abuse and neglect at the hands of those appointed to protect her. Yet in this darkness, Iman held on to the light within her. A light her mother taught her was far too bright to ever be extinguished. In Cracked Open - Never Broken, Iman takes readers on a journey through a childhood of loss, heartbreak, and isolation as she clings to the hope of a life she always dreamed of. Her memoir is for anyone who refuses to succumb to the role of the victim, and instead chooses to live with an unbreakable spirit and overflowing compassion. Through sheer determination, strength, and resilience Iman overcomes the unimaginable. She is proof that, when faced with extreme suffering, the power of the human spirit can endure and transcend. Iman believes we all possess the power of forgiveness and that we can transform our trauma into triumph.

For many years, Ilsa Redlich has helped her parents run a hotel in South Amana, but as the United States enters the Great War, she can feel her world changing. The residents of the towns surrounding the Amana Colonies used to be accepting of their quiet, peaceful neighbors, but with anti-German sentiment running high, the Amana villages are now plagued by vandalism, threats, and insults. Things get even worse when Ilsa finds out her family won't be allowed to speak German in public--and that Garon, the childhood friend she's long been smitten with, has decided to join the army. Jutta Schmidt is shocked when several members of the Council of National Defense show up on her family's doorstep. Sure, the Schmidts once lived in the Amana Colonies, but that was years ago. She's even more surprised when the council demands that she travel to Amana and report back on any un-American activities. Not daring to disobey the government agents, Jutta takes a job at the South Amana hotel, befriends the daughter of the owners, and begins to eavesdrop every chance she gets. When Jutta hears Ilsa making antiwar remarks and observes Garon assisting a suspicious outsider, she is torn at the prospect of betraying her new friends. But what choice does she have? And when Garon is accused of something far worse than Jutta could imagine, can the Amana community come to his aid in time?

Poems for accepting all that you are—including those parts of yourself that you wish you could disown “Give yourself permission to rest, and be silent, and do nothing. Love this aloneness, friend. Fall into it. (Don’t worry. You won’t disappear. I am here to catch you.) Invite warm, curious attention deep inside your weary bones. Until there is no loneliness, only radical self-love.” —Jeff Foster “There was never anything wrong with me, and there is never anything wrong with you.” So writes spiritual teacher Jeff Foster, who has traveled through his share of darkness—but also knows the light that lies on the other side. In You Were Never Broken, he presents a collection of poetry that embraces the full spectrum of human experience, from the seemingly mundane to moments of transcendent realization. Each verse is an invitation to stop and meditate on a different facet of personal transformation. Amid these verses, Foster provides his signature straight talk and accessible teachings on the value of stillness and silence, the pitfalls of the spiritual path, and what it means to surrender completely to the beauty of the present moment. For him, the winding path to self-acceptance started with nonjudgmental observation of his darkest thoughts—and here he shares his world-renowned expertise on how to begin your own journey. For Foster, every moment contains infinite possibilities. With You Were Never Broken, you’ll discover not just raw and inspirational poetry, but also a guide for completely surrendering to the beauty and possibility of the present moment.

Having virtually inhaled innumerable self-help books, courses of therapy, human development workshops plus intensive rabbinical studies, Rebba Raine Teller found what had been missing thanks to the Life Coaching she received from Robyn Jamison. Her delight was so great that she took on writing a book about it. She envisioned a book that people could read about her personal journey and gain access to the actual coaching process. To that end, she invited Robyn to write it with her. This book is the realization of that vision. In it, we walk you through each of the sixteen sessions of Transformational Life Coaching Raine underwent, with notes and insights from the coach’s perspective and deeply moving sharing from Raine’s life as she went through the coaching. You are likely to see yourself in Raine’s sharing - in her challenges, her insights and her breakthroughs. You can even walk yourself through the sessions by reading and applying them and doing the Follow-Up practices—rendering this a book that changes your life. I Was Never Broken in my professional assessment will become a sacred and pragmatic manifesto for decades. The melodic, but candid heart-wrenching recounting of two intertwining paths of strangers, Robyn Jamison (a Professional Life Coach) and Rebba Raine Teller (a Rabbi and Teacher), that mushroomed into a beautiful, yet powerful transformation work of literature, will challenge and inspire every area of your life. Just as Rabbi Teller’s personal challenges became trophies of courage, you too will find your voice and demand more of your time, talent, and resources to conquer the crevices of stagnation by identifying and cleaning up any messy components that send mixed messages into the universe that cancel out personal progress. This book offers informative tools to help you gain emotional strength to eradicate excessive debris of thought and practices and develop a deeper spiritual awareness of your Divine Completeness because you were never broken. - Dr. Janice Hollis, author, and media executive
