We all go through life making decisions about our lives, but both Jonathan and Isabel had no insight on what was about to change. She just knew wherever Jonathan was, that is where she wanted to be. All of her life, she had a dream of loving the perfect man and maybe one day starting her own designer clothing company. But Isabel always put her dreams last. On the other hand, Jonathan loves Isabel, but his sordid past kept coming back to life no matter where he ran to. Even though he loved her dearly, he was a very demanding man, and his dreams always came first before herbut at what expense? The exquisite Southern town of Fairhope, Alabama, was their new start, but it was also a place where their lives began to change. Isabel also had a secret but never in her life dreamed that she would find the missing link. Could they each put the past behind and learn to forgive and forget? Could their strong love handle the pressure of new intrusions?

The memoir of writer and editor Sam Adams. It's the story of the place where he was raised, Gilfach Goch, Glamorgan, in the early and middle years of the twentieth century; it's the story of his family yet, in many ways, it's also a story which will ring true with families throughout the south Wales coalfield.

|Editor||: Oxford University Press, USA|
Jordi Fernández here offers a philosophical investigation of memory, one which engages with memory's philosophically puzzling characteristics in order to clarify what memory is. Memories interact with mental states of other types in a particular way, and they also have associated feelings that these other mental states lack. They are special in terms of their representational capacity too, since one can have memories of objective events as well as memories of one's own past experiences. Finally, memories are epistemically unique, in that beliefs formed on the basis of memories are protected from certain errors of misidentification, and are justified in a way which does not rely on any cognitive capacity other than memory. To explain these unique features, Fernández proposes that memories have a particular functional role which involves past perceptual experiences and beliefs about the past. He suggests that memories have a particular content as well, namely that they represent themselves as having a certain causal origin. Fernández then explains the feelings associated with our memories as the experience of some of the things that our memories represent, things such as our own past experiences, or the fact that memories originate in those experiences. He also accounts for the special justification for belief afforded by our memories in terms of the content that memories have. The resulting picture is a unified account of several philosophically interesting aspects of memory, one that will appeal to philosophers of mind, metaphysicians, and epistemologists alike.

Hi, I'm Hank. Nice to meet you. I basically travel the world hunting monsters and saving people. I can't help everybody, but I try. It's a small consolation. I've come to this city to do just that. There's a vampire or two here, somewhere, and I'm going to find them. I'm going to kill them. Why do I do it, you ask? Well, it's the right thing to do. It's a good life. Hard, but good. I mean, it's not like I have some tragic backstory or anything...
|Author||: John Rogers|
|Editor||: University of Oklahoma Press|
In reminiscing about his early years on Minnesota’s White Earth Reservation at the turn of the century, John Rogers reveals much about the life and customs of the Chippewas. He tells of food-gathering, fashioning bark canoes and wigwams, curing deerskin, playing games, and participating in sacred rituals. These customs were to be cast aside, however, when he was taken to a white school in an effort to assimilate him into white society. In the foreword to this new edition, Melissa L. Meyer places Roger’s memoirs within the story of the White Earth Reservation.

This book investigates how films made about the URA since the 1990s have engaged with, reproduced and contested cultural memories of the organisation, discussing how directors have addressed questions of narrativization, trauma, intergenerational connection, and political subjectivity as they engage in the politics of cultural memory on screen.

Brief Description of Red Memories pentalogy The author spent fifteen years writing his Red Memories pentalogy, a novel series composed of five books, which are closely linked together as an integral whole by the development of important events and the stories of the miserable fate of the main characters, but each of which can be read on its own. The pentalogy series covers all the major political movements launched by Mao Zedong, including the Anti-Rightist Struggle (Tearful Youth), the Great Leap Forward (Rainbow Bridge), the Socialist Education Movement (Withered Flowers), the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (Awful Catastrophe) and the Proletarian Revolution in Education in the latter half of the Cultural Revolution (Generation Lost) and other movements across the whole span of Mao’s times. The complete process of these political movements is brought to light for the first time in the form of literature, while tragic stories one after another faithful to the real life at that time are narrated throughout the whole set of novels. The five novels of the series (Chinese edition) were published in Hong Kong in 1987 and 1992 respectively. The one-volume Chinese edition of the novel series was published in Hong Kong in September 2008. Later, the National Museum of Modern Chinese Literature, the most authoritative literary institution in China, collected it as a rare book and it ensured that it would be handed down forever. Professor Yuan Liangjun, research fellow with the Institute of Literature under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, wrote in his work History of Different Schools of Fiction in Hong Kong, “Red Memories is the only novel series so far portraying the ultra-Left errors in China during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s of the last century. With its grand boldness of vision and very true-to-life settings, the novel series profoundly reflects the tragic history of that period.” Tung Rui, a well-known Hong Kong writer, said in his article Wen Shaoxian’s Novel Series Is a Success: “Wen Shaoxian’s Red Memories novel series is a literary work with an epical structure. It serves as a telling witness to the part of tragic history in China... Its literary value is sure to coexist with history.” The author is greatly encouraged by Perry Link, well-known Sinologist and professor of Princeton University, who said in his letter to the author, “I salute you. Many people, of course, lived through the tumultuous times that you lived through, but very few wrote so much about it, and with such a grand and comprehensive sweep. Certainly your work deserves to be translated into English and other languages.” The author, therefore, has translated the novel series into English in hopes that the Western readers could have an opportunity to know and understand the true and complete picture of Mao’s era thoroughly.

This book interrogates why feminist memories matter. Feminist Afterlives explores how the images, ideas and feelings of past liberation struggles become freshly available and transmissible. In doing so, Red Chidgey examines how popular feminist memories travel as digital and material resources across protest, heritage, media, commercial and governmental sites, and in connection with the concerns and conditions of the present. Central case studies track repeated invocations to militant suffragettes and the We Can Do It! post-feminist icon over time and space. Assembling interviews, archival research and ethnographic accounts with provocative examples drawn from postfeminist media culture, a UNESCO heritage bid, protest at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and activist remembrance in zines and blogs, this is a broad-ranging study of ‘restless’ feminist pasts – both real and imagined. Richly researched and argued, this volume offers an original framework of ‘assemblage memory’ and sets out a new research agenda for the intersections between everyday activism, protest, and memory practices.

Take a journey through Australia. From arrival to departure, the experiences provided within the pages of this book are rich and full of the beauty and excitement that surrounded the trip. In Sydney, there were tons of restaurants and a lot of time was spent in those establishments due to jet lag. However, the Botanical Gardens were beautiful, abundant in plant life as well as colorful birds. Though there are lots of ways to get around, the Circular Quay was the best option during this trip. Usually, it was bustling with people, but in the evening. Cafes and shops are abundant, but one of the most memorable occasions was a concert right out in the street.
|Author||: Kitty Oliver|
|Editor||: University Press of Kentucky|
A telling memoir by an exciting new voice, Multicolored Memories of a Black Southern Girl explores journalist Kitty Oliver's coming of age as she makes the crossing from an all-black to a predominantly white world. Born and raised in an all-black area of Jacksonville, Florida, Oliver was one of the first African American freshmen to enter the University of Florida. Though she chronicles the strains of her transition from Jim Crow to desegregation, this book is much more than a memoir of the turbulent sixties. It is an upbeat journal of self-discovery in the aftermath of that decade, a look at one woman's coming to terms with living an integrated life in America. With humor, poignancy, and lyrical language (reminiscent at times of another Florida writer, Zora Neale Hurston), Oliver shares her passage from the "old world" to the new -- an immigrant's journey indicative of the American experience. Blending past and present, she searches for roots from the Gullah or "Geechee" culture of South Carolina to the urban streets of northern Florida to the multicultural mix of South Florida's diverse ethnic cultures, serving up family stories with large helpings of southern "folktalk," food, and music along the way.
|Author||: Luo Ying|
|Editor||: University of Oklahoma Press|
At once a work of narrative lyricism and an act of personal courage, this memoir in verse documents the human cost of a period of political turmoil in China’s recent past. Luo Ying—the pen name of Huang Nubo, a celebrated poet, Forbes billionaire, and mountain climber—draws readers into the depths of the Cultural Revolution (1966–1976) by rendering its defining moments in his life with devastating precision and clarity. The narrative poems that make up Memories of the Cultural Revolution combine the ardor of youthful experience with the cooler insight of mature reflection, offering a nuanced picture of life in the midst of historic change. The “Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution” marked a critical passage on China’s road to modernity, as momentous for the world as it was for one boy caught up in its throes. In poetry that juxtaposes the political and the personal, the social and the individual, Luo Ying depicts a time when ultraleftist mass movements and factional struggles penetrated the deepest level of private daily life. In bleak yet vivid portraits of his mother, father, classmates, and coworkers, he reveals how the period indelibly marred him. “I am a red guard just as I always was,” he writes. Giving voice to the inner life of a man haunted by his experiences, Memories of the Cultural Revolution bears witness to a traumatic time when ideology threatened to crush individuality. Luo Ying’s poetry stands as eloquent testimony to the power of the individual voice to endure in the face of dire social and historical circumstances.
