              Confronting Leviathan describes Mozambique's attempt to construct a socialist society in one African country on the back of an anti-colonial struggle for national independence. In explaining the failure of this effort the authors suggest reasons why the socialist vision of the ru...ling party, Frelimo, lacked resonance with Mozambican society. They also document in detail South Africa's attempts to destabilize the country even to the extent of sponsoring the Renamo insurgents. The dynamics of that insurgency and its roots in Mozambican society are examined as well as the more recent attempts to construct a liberal capitalist society. This excellent book will provide an important contribution to understanding the last twenty years in Mozambique. It thoughtful and reflective as well as being soundly researched . -- Dr. Malyn Newitt

              Recycled Realities (Hardback)

              By Willis, John; Young, Tom; Sandweiss, Martha A.

              Near the homes of photographers John Willis and Tom Young is a paper mill that sits in the otherwise pristine and picturesque climes of western Massachusetts. For Willis and Young, this site is one of both aesthetic and philosophical contradictions: despite its verdant locale, th...e mill with its smokestacks and countless bales of discarded paper brings to mind the dreariness of industrialization and the impermanence of life itself. But the factory is actually one where such litter is reborn as reusable paper. Willis and Young s quadtone photographs transform this mill and the innumerable mounds of recyclable waste it processes daily into an indelible and evocative landscape. Recycled Realities is not a jeremiad foretelling the consequences of excessive waste, rampant pollution, or unbridled consumption but rather a profound meditation on the hidden connections and meanings that linger beneath the debris and detritus of everyday life. These unforgettable images of discarded paper from the printed world trace the processes of emergence, revelation, and redemption that make the cycle of life possible.

              In Tom Young's trilogy of books, the common thread is time: the marking of time in one's personal life and the events that unfold; the marking of time in society in which one can see change on the landscape and in our towns, homes, and cities; the marking of time on our planet Ea...rth, in which we see the impact of human life on our planetary home. With this trilogy, Tom Young has made a lasting impression in the world of photography and art in how he renders time in our collective and individual lives.

              A powerfully authentic and thrilling saga based on the true story of Operation Halyard, WWII's most daring and successful rescue mission, from air combat veteran and acclaimed author Tom Young... Summer 1944: Yugoslavia is locked in a war within a war. When not fighting against G...erman occupation, Chetnik and Partisan factions battle each other. Hundreds of Allied airmen have been shot down over this volatile region, among them American Lieutenant Bill Bogdonavich. Though grateful to the locals who risk their lives to shelter and protect them from German troops, Bogdonavich dreams of the impossible: escape. With three failed air missions behind him, Lieutenant Drew Carlton is desperate for redemption. From a Texas airbase he volunteers for a secretive and dangerous assignment, codenamed Operation Halyard, that will bring together American special operations officers, airmen, and local guerilla fighters in Yugoslavia's green hills. The daring plan--to evacuate hundreds of stranded airmen while avoiding detection by the Germans--faces overwhelming odds. What follows is one of the greatest stories of World War II heroism, an elaborate rescue that required astonishing courage, sacrifice, and resilience. Red Burning Sky is a riveting and ultimately triumphant tale based on true events, all the more remarkable for being so little known--until now.
