Melancholy Experience in Literature of the Long Eighteenth By Allan Ingram
This book arises out of a major research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, on depression in the eighteenth century. It discusses the experience of depressive states both in terms of existing modes of thought and expression, and in terms of individual attempts to describe and live with suffering. Different chapters, each by an authority in the field, look at depression, or, in the terms of the time, melancholy, spleen and hypochondria, as it is reflected in medical writing, philosophical writing, poetry, in the novel and in autobiographical writing, this last based on material which is currently unpublished. The book concludes by comparing eighteenth-century medical practice with contemporary structures for treating the depressed, and by asking what present-day society can learn about depression and its treatment from the experience of this previous era.
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. It was, quick read, with and just the right amount of romance.
I loved Melancholy Experience in Literature of the Long Eighteenth. Very moving story. Highly recommend this book to everyone. Written very well to read.

Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa

Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa By Kathryn Mathers
Travel, Humanitarianism, and Becoming American in Africa uses observations of American travelers to southern Africa to ask: why is Africa so important to Americans? These travel stories show how encounters with Africans lead to a problematic desire to save Africa. Kathryn Mathers argues that this is then seen as a way to resolve the tensions between aspirations for a globally responsible America and the current reality of its geopolitical role. This book draws fascinating new conclusions about the connections and disconnections on which contemporary American identity is formed.
I was so impressed with this novel. It is the best book I have read in years. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and I fell in love with all of the characters. I cried and laughed and really felt I could see through their eyes. I savored every page, and I totally recommend Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa.
I purchased Travel Humanitarianism and Becoming American in Africa for an assignment in one of my courses. I love this book! It ended up being so much better than.

Holocaust as Fiction Bernhard Schlink s Nazi Novels and Their

Holocaust as Fiction seeks to explain and critically evaluate the extraordinary success of Schlink’s internationally acclaimed novel, The Reader, the widely read “Selb” detective trilogy, and two popular films based closely on his work. With the help of wide-ranging reception data, the work of Holocaust scholars, as well as cultural and legal reflections on the concept of guilt, Donahue elucidates not only these works, but the wider critical climate that has fostered their success.
I couldn’t put this Holocaust as Fiction Bernhard Schlink s Nazi Novels and Their down! Very suspenseful, I never expected the things that happened when I turned the page
Holocaust as Fiction Bernhard Schlink s Nazi Novels and Their By William Collins Donahue
Good Holocaust as Fiction Bernhard Schlink s Nazi Novels and Their. Made you think and examine your own reality. wrote the book with the intention of having you start to suspect what was really going on about halfway through. It really has the feeling of inevitability but you are so ensconced by the story and characters that you truly want to know for sure exactly what has happened. The book also ends in a satisfactory way, not dragging on but giving you solid closure at the same time. I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys

Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories

Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories By unknown
In the past decade, the field of memory has been dramatically reconfigured. Global conditions have powerfully impacted on memory debates, and at the same time, claims to memory are negotiated globally. This is a fundamental shift, as until recently, the dynamics of memory production unfolded primarily within the bounds of the nation-state; coming to terms with the past was largely a national project. Under the impact of processes of globalization, this has changed fundamentally. Today it has become impossible to understand the trajectories of memory outside a global frame of reference. This book offers an innovative inroad into the various problematics of memory in a global age. It presents analytical categories to chart the terrain, and it supplies richly documented case studies that illustrate the complexities of contemporary ways of appropriating the past. Written from different cultural positions and from different disciplinary backgrounds, the collection of essays emphasizes the positionality of memory production as it is negotiated locally and globally.
Since picking up Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories, I can’t seem to stop reading it!…I love her style of writing and more importantly you will identify with her struggle. I would recommend this book to all.
I highly recommend Memory in a Global Age Discourses Practices and Trajectories. All in a good book not regretting having read it.

Inflation Targeting in MENA Countries An Unfinished Journey

Should Middle and North African (MENA) countries adopt the fashionable modern monetary policy strategy of inflation targeting (IT)? This informed and critical book contains contributions from a team of international experts, who discuss the preconditions and consequences of IT. Particular attention is paid to fiscal policy, capital account liberalisation and monetary transmission mechanisms.    This book examines the progress by various MENA countries towards IT. Against the background of the paths taken in Europe (and the changes in financial infrastructure which were required), the authors examine how Turkey first came to IT, first informally and then formally, and how IT has worked for Turkey so far. They also consider in turn the varying experiences of Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia, and debate whether, in the light of the global financial crisis, IT is in fact the appropriate strategy to adopt.
Its a long story. It seems to be pointing out how things really so it is not so much a story to be read for pleasure or entertainment as it is to learn or educate.
