Rather Die Fighting: A Memoir of World War II

Frank Blaichman

Rather Die Fighting: A Memoir of World War II by Frank Blaichman
Frank Blaichman was sixteen years old when the war broke out. In 1942, the killings began in Poland. With his family and friends decimated by the roundups, Blaichman decided that he would rather die fighting; he set off for the forest to find the underground bunkers of Jews who had already escaped. Together they formed a partisan force dedicated to fighting the Germans. This is a harrowing, utterly moving memoir of a young Polish Jew who chose not to go quietly and defied the mighty German war machine during World War II.

Contemporary Art in the Light of History

Erwin Rosenthal

Contemporary Art in the Light of History by Erwin RosenthalErwin Rosenthal's Contemporary Art in the Light of History, originally published in 1971, is a small masterpiece of writing on the art of the twentieth century. A scholar of medieval art by training and a prominent antiquarian bookseller, Rosenthal, who died in l981, was equally entranced by modern art, particularly abstraction. His three linked essays in this book—"Contemporary Art in the Light of History," "Art and Technology," and "Art Theories and Manifestos, Old and New"—set out a path to understanding modern art through its affinities with the art of the past.

Rosenthal engages with some...

Only The Eyes Say Yes: A Love Story

Philippe Vigand & Stephane Vigand

Only The Eyes Say Yes: A Love Story by Philippe Vigand & Stephane VigandOn a July morning ten years ago, Philippe Vigand, a young, vigorous, handsome publishing executive, was walking to work when he heard "a gigantic explosion." Strangely, nobody else seemed to have heard it ... for the simple reason that it was in his head. For two months he lay in a coma. When he awoke, he was completely paralyzed, but his mind was intact. He was suffering from locked-in syndrome. After months of hospital care, Philippe was brought home where an infrared Camera enabled him to "speak" and "write" by blinking his eyes. Written in two parts, the first by Philippe using the magic...

A Short History of Decay

E. M. Cioran

A Short History of Decay by E. M. CioranE. M. Cioran confronts the place of today's world in the context of human history-focusing on such major issues of the twentieth century as human progress, fanaticism, and science-in this nihilistic and witty collection of aphoristic essays concerning the nature of civilization in mid-twentieth-century Europe. Touching upon Man's need to worship, the feebleness of God, the downfall of the Ancient Greeks and the melancholy baseness of all existence, Cioran's pieces are pessimistic in the extreme, but also display a beautiful certainty that renders them delicate, vivid, and memorable. Illuminating...

Drawn and Quartered

E. M. Cioran

Drawn and Quartered by E. M. CioranIn this collection of aphorisms and short essays, E.M. Cioran sets about the task of peeling off the layers of false realities with which society masks the truth. For him, real hope lies in this task, and thus, while he perceives the world darkly, he refuses to give in to despair. He hits upon this ultimate truth by developing his notion of human history and events as "a procession of delusions," striking out at the so-called "Fallacies of Hope." By examining the relationship between truth and action and between absolutes, unknowables, and frauds, Cioran comes out, for once, in favor of being.

Secrets of the Sands: The Revelations of Egypt

Harry Thurston

In this extraordinary book, an acclaimed science writer and journalist follows an international team of archaeologists as they unlock the secrets of nearly half a million years. Using high-tech methods, these scientists have made stunning finds, including indications that Dakhleh may have been the cradle of the Nile civilization that gave rise to the pharaohs and the pyramids.

The Changing Concept of Reality in Art

Deborah Rosenthal & Erwin Rosenthal

The Changing Concept of Reality in Art by Deborah Rosenthal & Erwin Rosenthal"The transmutation of artistic form," writes Erwin Rosenthal, "depends on individual decisions and cultural development. But there are basic laws of self-expression which do not change, which are perpetual because they accord with the structure of the human mind and soul." These penetrating studies explore the deep psychological and formal affinities between defining figures of their epochs-from Giotto and Dante through Picasso-and illuminate ways that artists and thinkers encounter the world and translate it through the unique language of imagination.

The principal sections of this important...

Greentown, Second Edition: Murder and Mystery in Greenwich, America's Wealthiest Community by Timothy DumasGreenwich, Connecticut, also known as "Greentown," has never recovered from the savage murder of fifteen-year-old Martha Moxley, whose battered body was discovered on the grounds of her home in the privileged enclave of Belle Haven on Halloween night in 1975. The immediate suspects were Thomas and Michael Skakel, nephews of Ethel Kennedy, who lived across the street. Until recently, no one was ever charged in the murder, and it went down as one of the legendary unsolved crimes of recent history.

His book Lovesong is a beautifully written account of his spiritual journey away from the conventions of his Southern heritage and Methodist upbringing, culminating in his personal self-discovery through a conversion to Judaism.

Growing up in the turbulent civil rights era South, Lester was often discouraged by the disconnectedness between the promises of religion and the realities of his life. He used the outlets available to him to try to come to grips with this split and somehow reconcile the injustices he was witnessing...

The Tao and the Bard: A Conversation

Phillip DePoy

The Tao and the Bard: A Conversation by Phillip DePoyThe Tao Te Ching or Book of the Way of Virtue is a touchstone of Eastern philosophy and mysticism. It has been called the wisest book ever written, and its author, Lao Tzu, is known as the Great Archivist. Shakespeare, the Bard, was the West's greatest writer and even invented human nature, according to some. The Tao and the Bard is the delightful conversation between these two unlikely spokesmen, who take part in a free exchange of views in its pages. Here, in his own words, Lao Tzu offers the eighty-one verses that comprise the Tao, and, responding to each verse, the Bard answers with quotations...

But translations that have popularized the work of this thirteenth-century Sufi mystic have also strayed from its essence. In this new translation, Farrukh Dhondy seeks to recover both the lyrical beauty and the spiritual essence of the original verse. In poems of love and devotion, rapture and suffering, loss and yearning for oneness, Dhondy has rediscovered the Islamic mystic of spiritual awakening whose quest is the...
