The view that Uganda is what it is today largely because of what President Obote did or did not do is a serious question that can result in a big debate. When Dr Apollo Milton Obote was handed power on Independence Day the 9th October 1962, expectations and hopes filled the hearts of Ugandans who lived then. Thereupon, the country embarked on a journey to the future; but the journey would soon prove difficult. Thus, many people wondered whether the main reason the vehicle called Uganda was not cruising smoothly was because of the driver or because of the road or because of both. Even today, the question that historians still differ on is whether the driver had shortfalls or the road had potholes. Indeed, much as Obote the driver made glaring mistakes and blunders all through the way, the road on which he led the country was certainly a tough terrain roughened by tribal, cultural, religious and political heaps and lumps, ups and downs, mounds and hills easily susceptible to manipulation by dangerous antagonists. Sadly for Uganda, there was no stop, no junction, no U-turn. She had to stay on course. So, this book explores Obote's journey to power, his leadership skills, strength, and weakness in detail. And, other than recording the post-independence history of Uganda, it also scrutinises critical decisions Obote took or did not take that led to desired or undesired consequences to Uganda and beyond.

The Scottish nationalists seek to end the United Kingdom after 300 years of a successful union. Their drive for an independent Scotland is now nearer to success than it has ever been. Success would mean a diminished Britain and a perilously insecure Scotland. The nationalists have represented the three centuries of union with England as a malign and damaging association for Scotland. The European Union is held out as an alternative and a safeguard for Scotland's future. But the siren call of secession would lure Scotland into a state of radical instability, disrupting ties of work, commerce and kinship and impoverishing the economy. All this with no guarantee of growth in an EU now struggling with a downturn in most of its states and the increasing disaffection of many of its members. In this incisive and controversial book, journalist John Lloyd cuts through the rhetoric to show that the economic plans of the Scottish National Party are deeply unrealistic; the loss of a subsidy of as much as £10 billion a year from the Treasury would mean large-scale cuts, much deeper than those effected by Westminster; the broadly equal provision of health, social services, education and pensions across the UK would cease, leaving Scotland with the need to recreate many of these systems on its own; and the claim that Scotland would join the most successful of the world's small states - as Denmark, New Zealand and Norway - is no more than an aspiration with little prospect of success. The alternative to independence is clear: a strong devolution settlement and a joint reform of the British union to modernise the UK’s age-old structures, reduce the centralisation of power and boost the ability of all Britain’s nations and regions to support and unleash their creative and productive potential. Scotland has remained a nation in union with three other nations - England, Northern Ireland and Wales. It will continue as one, more securely in a familiar companionship.

Great mistakes make great reading! No area of human endeavor is immune to human error, as these stories of mistakes throughout history clearly show. Some of these mistakes are foolish or funny. Others are serious, terrifying or disastrous. Some are famous. Others are not well known. All of them are marvelously entertaining. Here is the amusing story of a triple double play, the little-known truth about the awesome angle of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the harrowing tale of the man who was hanged twice. The famous and colorful mayor of New York, Fiorello La Guardia, once said, “I don’t make many mistakes, but when I make one, it’s a beaut.” Everyone makes mistakes—mayors, presidents, kings, generals, police officers, judges, scientists, explorers, millionaires, baseball players, parents and students. So remember when you make a mistake, you are not alone! You are in the company of some of the most powerful and smartest people in history!

WANTING ENLIGHTENMENT IS A BIG MISTAKE presents teaching stories by one of the foremost teachers of Zen in the West, whose influence spread far beyond the world of Korean Zen. Zen Master Seung Sahn established the Kwan Um School of Zen, with centers in Providence, Cambridge, New Haven, New York, Los Angeles, and Berkeley. (Today there are more than fifty centers of the Kwan Um School throughout the world.) Zen Master Seung Sahn was known for his powerful teaching style, which was direct, surprising, and often humorous. He taught that Zen is not about achieving a goal, but about dwelling in the realm "before thought" - and serving others. Zen Master Seung Sahn passed away in 2004, but one of his close American students has assembled a new collection of teachings stories, dialogues, and excerpts from the master's talks. This book will be cherished by students of the Kwan Um School and by the many Zen students of other schools who enjoyed his popular earlier collection of teaching stories, DROPPING ASHES ON THE BUDDHA (Grove, 1976), and his book on Zen philosophy and practice, COMPASS OF ZEN (Shambhala, 1997).
