While a resident of Cuba from 1958 to 1959 -- experiencing three months under the dictatorship of Presidente Fulgencio Batista and almost a year under Comendador Fidel Castro -- I met and became... More > friends with Hemingway. It is from my initial long weekend visit, subsequent friendship, and my recent return visit to Cuba that I have carefully crafted an informatively engrossing and quietly authoritative portrait of my friend -- affectionately and respectfully called Papa. This portrait reflects a sensitive and sympathetic image of a complex personality and a distinguished artist. Still, ever present is Hemingway himself and the hitherto puzzling components of his existence. His drive to endanger his life again and again, his epic battles with critics and his unapologetic assailing of the U.S. Department of Justice and it's Immigration Naturalization Service for their inbred policies of prejudice and bigotry exacerbated by politicians, he maintained, were handicapped by natural immaturity.< Less

Eastern Thought and the Gita By Gerard D C Kuiken
Paperback: List Price: $29.95 $20.97 | You Save: 30%
Prints in 3-5 business days
To understand the Gita, a concise discussion of Eastern Thought is given first, followed by the Original Gita, which predates the Bhagavad Gita, the classic epic poem included in the Mahabharata.... More > Compared to the 209 verses of the Original Gita, many verses in the Bhagavad Gita are interpolated, but 319 of its 700 verses can be considered as its core. This core is not concerned with the battle that is dominant in the Bhagavad Gita. The verses in the Original Gita are commented on, with a new literal translation of the 319 core verses in the Bhagavad Gita. All 319 verses are given in Sanskrit in transliterated form with a word-for-word translation, and the reader without any knowledge of Sanskrit is able to make his own translation, or to obtain the deeper meaning of many words by consulting the 240 page dictionary.

The Bruce: Being the Metrical History of Robert the Bruce, Warrior King of Scotland By John Barbour & George Eyre-Todd
Paperback: List Price: $14.98 $7.49 | You Save: 50%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This engrossing biography of Robert the Bruce, Scotland’s famous warrior-king, is adapted from the epic verse of John Barbour – a famous Scottish poet, who wrote his life’s work in... More > the Scots language. We hear tell of how the great king dealt with conflicts between the noble houses of Medieval Scotland, and the ever-present threat of the encroaching English. Of particular highlight are the battle narratives, which count among the most elaborate and descriptive to survive from the period. Barbour places great emphasis upon the Bruce’s heroism and daring feats of bravery both political and military, his work being written to commemorate the emergence of Robert’s successor, Robert the Second. While modern histories offer a more even-handed and detailed look at both Robert’s achievements and his shortcomings, Barbour’s great poem – and modern English translations of it such as this – remain core sources for historians of Medieval Scotland.< Less
