Angels, Elephants and Ants

by Jack Florentin

Jack Florentin is a successful entrepreneur, and the son of Holocaust survivors. As co-founder and CEO of Sarah Lawrence S.A., he has introduced major fashion brands in Europe, while expanding his business exponentially. His story provides a rare glimpse into one man’s struggle to survive in a tumultuous business environment; at the same time avoiding being crushed by the threat of “elephants,” or competitors. In addition, his experiences offer insight into the lives of Thessaloniki Jews who survived Auschwitz, and into the lives of their children. Through the help of “angels” — his therapist, friends and family — Jack affirms the values essential to the three cultures he identifies with: Sephardic, Greek, and American. And when faced with the spectre of failure, Jack overcam...

The Cossacks (Illustrated)

by

Cossacks are a group of predominantly East Slavic-speaking people who became known as members of democratic, self-governing, semi-military communities, predominantly located in Ukraine and in Russia. They inhabited sparsely populated areas and islands in the lower Dnieper, Don, Terek, and Ural river basins and played an important role in the historical and cultural development of both Russia and Ukraine. By the end of the 18th century, Cossack nations had been transformed into a special military estate (Sosloviye), "a military class," similar to the knights of medieval Europe in feudal times.In The Cossacks, William Penn Cresson traces the history and culture of these legendary Slavic warriors. ...

The Bible Answer Man: Walter Martin and Hank Hanegraaff: Dr. Martin's Daughter Reflects on CRI's Founder, Its History, and Its Current President

by Cindee Martin Morgan

This book, while containing relevant biographical information, is not a biography of Walter Martin. It highlights the ministry God raised up through Walter Martin almost six decades ago, the Christian Research Institute (CRI), and unpacks some of its triumphs and trials. It is a daughter’s reflections on seasons of her father’s life — both public and private — and is, in a limited sense, a memoir. It answers many questions, such as: What was it like to have Walter Martin as a father? (This is the question I am asked most frequently.) Was Walter Martin a dispensationalist, like his friend Hal Lindsey? Why was Walter Martin not invited back on the Trinity Broadcasting Network? What happened, behind the scenes, when he debated America’s most infamous atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair...

Our Two Societies

by Andre Davis

This is a true story about the author’s discovery of two different societies alive and well in America; and their influences on all American life. This journey goes from life in Detroit’s projects in the 1970’s, teenage years in a Detroit middle-class neighborhood in the 1980’s, to life as an Afro-American living in Japan in the 1990’s, to life as a law school student in the year 2000. The perspectives gained from people, relationships, places and cultures within this book provides a refreshing look at race relations, the modern day black identity and its acceptance at home and abroad without the typical negative rhetoric. This story was written for Americans regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. It is a celebration of the possibilities that one society provides an...

JONES COUNTY COUSINS: LAVONNE OWEN MEMORIES

by Phillip Owen

This book is dedicated in memory of my wife LaVonne Louse (Harms) Owen. During her lifetime she had written topical notes of her memories and family history, intending to use the information to write the story of her life. I’ll use six words in remembrance of LaVonne Louse (Harms) Owen: “Went There, Done That, Had Fun”. Family history of LaVonne’s mother and father can be traced the 1500s in Germany. Churches in Germany were record keepers for each community in Europe; church records are the most reliable source to verify family history for birth, baptism, marriage and death. LaVonne’s distant cousin, Gail Mauer, a descendent Hillie Maria (Harms) Iben visited Germany and searched church records. Gail found the Harms surname as common in Germany as Smith is today in America. Gail...

Indeed, the very renown of his signature has tended to obscure his position as one of the most extraordinary politicians in American history.Hancock was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, in 1737. When his father died in 1744 after a short illness, seven-year-old John was sent to live with his childless Uncle Thomas, a prosperous merchant in Boston. John attended Boston Latin School and later Harvard, where he was an indifferent student, and then joined his uncle as an apprentice in the world of commerce. At the age of twenty-seven, when his uncle passed away, he became one of the richest me...

A major document in the literature of human rights, this now-legendary memoir, by one of the most prominent of the Soviet-era Russian dissidents, was a world-wide bestseller when first published in 1978.At the age of 20, as punishment for his political protests, Vladimir Bukovsky was falsely declared insane and committed to a psychiatric hospital—standard practice for communism's critics in 1963. But the quack doctors and brutal guards who kept him captive didn't realize: Bukovsky wasn't locked up with them. They were locked up with Bukovsky.In this compelling, beautifully-crafted memoir, Bukovsky details with equal parts burning outrage and bitter humor the cruel theater of life for Soviet prisoners of conscience. But he also recounts how he found his inner truth and strength, and built...

From Handguns to Paintbrushes: A Memoir of Self-Destruction, Rock Bottom, Hope, Change, and Love

by de Leyer, Joseph "Jeff"

Jeff de Leyer is the grandson of a Dutch immigrant and equestrian champion, Harry de Leyer. This in itself, created an impression of a young man born into a world of privilege and entitlement. However, this could not be any further from the truth. His biological mother and father abandoned him on a doorstep when he was only three years old, leaving him with a void that was nearly impossible to fill. Jeff spent his teen and young adult years on the streets of New York making a name for himself as a drug dealer. This is where he not only found acceptance, but also a sense of family he so desperately wanted and needed. In 1998 at 21 years of age, Jeff was arrested and later convicted of a gang-related murder, after a drug deal went horribly wrong. In prison, he was a high-ranking member...

Born Dead on a Winter's Night: ❤️ MEMOIR (Ozark Mountains Stories Book 10)

by Rolland Love

Rolland Love was born dead in the dead of winter, still as a stone. Blue as the smoky haze that sometimes settles on the Ozark Mountains. Doc Barnes, a tall rugged-looking man with bushy white hair, worked frantically when he realized there was trouble. His white shirt covered in blood and the flickering light of a kerosene lamp added ghost-like dimension. Cold enough to see your breath, the only source of heat came from a cast iron wood-burning stove in the living room. Love was saved because Doc carried him outside and rolled him in snow that covered the ground from a midwinter storm. The cold caused him to take a breath and began to cry.Rolland say's he's pretty sure starting life dead has had an effect. Often, he feels, sees or thinks about something and it stalks him. Intuition has be...

In the midst of terror, there they found grace In August 1943, the Bialystok Ghetto was emptied by the Nazis and all its occupants were sent to extermination.

All the Presidents' Memories: How they Reconstruct the Past, Manage the Present and Shape the Future; Volume I

by Henry Roth

The memories described in this book reflect not only how eleven American Presidents remembered what happened to them in their youth, but also a kind of psychological shorthand of their beliefs, attitudes, cognitive biases and foibles. A negative memory may have provided guidance in situations the President viewed as dangerous, whereas a positive memory may have provided guidance in situations viewed as promising. By examining the early memories of the Presidents, it is possible to discover how, for example: Abraham Lincoln's amusing memory of a boyhood caper provided an unusual perspective on his character and his lasting appeal as a great storyteller;Ulysses S. Grant’s memory of a business transaction revealed a hidden vulnerability; Teddy Roosevelt's memory of a fantastic childhood adv...
