Set in Boston on December 26, 2000, but written before the turn of the nineteenth century, this classic Utopian novel is more significant and relevant than ever with its reappearance this millennium. Addressing moral and material concerns of late nineteenth century industrial America through romantic narrative, Bellamy suggests a fictionalized society in which war, poverty, and malice do not exist.

At a time when there is the great debate in the USA about which countries interfere in other's democratic elections and a time of great turmoil in Venezuela, this is a most relevant and timely publication. For the current events in Venezuela, including the shortage of basic food, state sponsored terrorism, civil unrest, hyper-inflation etc. mirror conditions during the cold war era in the small nation state of Jamaica when they too experimented with socialism. It was during that period too that the Russian KGB, American CIA and Cuban DGI were all active on the ground trying to influence the outcome of their elections. At that time, the author Joan Williams and her entire family faced grave danger which forced her to have to temporarily send her children away, as she was determined that the socialist/communist threat which not only brought in its wake, many mass murders, numerous state organized massacres and even treason by a member of the then government which was at the time under the tutelage of foreign communist agencies, should not succeed in depriving her and her people of their freedoms. Williams who has visited Cuba four times since then, (the last being in 2014,) says she has no regrets about the activities she participated in and dangers she faced but remains sympathetic to the Cuban people who she reveals are deprived, browbeaten and hopeless, much as the Venezuelan people are becoming today. While the first part of this powerful memoir deals with the struggle to preserve their freedoms in Jamaica, Williams also shares with readers the devastating period she went through when she lost her only son. He was murdered when he was only 24 years old. He died when a vicious killer fired one bullet into his heart. Although this happened over two decades ago, in her book “Looking Back……,” she admits that it took her many years before she could even talk about the event without breaking down totally. In the chapter entitled “To Hell and Back” where she bares it all, she says in part “the worst part was the sleepless nights though, especially when I teetered on the verge of suicide. There was also the inability to eat for weeks on end as not only had my sense of taste gone, but it was as if no stomach existed at all. That is when I went through every event of my life trying to understand why such a terrible thing had happened to me, for I did think I was a good person and terrible tragedies should never happen to good people!” This gripping narrative by Williams takes readers through a roller coaster of various emotions including those which she had to confront when she looked back a few years ago and realized that all the evidence pointed to the possibility that her son was murdered, not by a “criminal” but by someone in the Jamaican police force in her country where the police are sworn to “To serve and protect”. She has provided a mountain of evidence to substantiate her claims. This strong lady has however been able to recover from all her tragedies and struggles and risen like a phoenix to say years later that she is now one of the happiest persons in the world! Certainly not because her son was murdered, for she quotes the late Rose Kennedy; “It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time-the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone” but because “I have come to realize that your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” This is definitely a powerful and timely book not only for women but also persons interested in history, politics, sociology and personal triumphs.

Pillar of Salt introduces the controversy over recollections of childhood sexual abuse as the window onto a much broader field of ideas concerning memory, storytelling, and the psychology of women. The book moves beyond the poles of "true" and "false" memories to show how women's stories reveal layers of gendered and ambiguous meanings, spanning a wide historical, cultural, literary, and clinical landscape. The author offers the concept of transformative remembering as an alternative framework for looking back, one that makes use of fantasy in understanding the narrative truth of childhood recollections.Haaken provides an alternative reading of clinical material, showing how sexual storytelling transcends the symbolic and the "real" and how cultural repression of desire remains as problematic for women as the psychological legacy of trauma.

Twenty-two-year-old Shivani had thrown a party one evening-and awoken the next morning in hospital, her spine and her dreams shattered by a car crash. Paralysed and then wheelchair-bound, it took Shivani years of pain, struggle and determination to regain control of her life and her body; to demand and receive respect from the world; to gain acceptance from within and without; to find love and happiness. Then tragedy struck again. As the newly married Shivani drove to Manali with her family, an oil tanker collided head-on with the car; bedridden once again, she watched helplessly as first her father-in-law and then Vikas, her husband, succumbed to their injuries. And, yet, Shivani refused to surrender-she would not let her inability to walk keep her from achieving her ambitions. No Looking Back is a deeply moving and inspiring narrative about surviving the challenges of disability in a country that takes little account of the daily difficulties and indignities faced by approximately fifteen per cent of the world's population, whether in terms of infrastructure, legislation or awareness-a country that appears to believe that disability equals invisibility from the public discourse. Undeterred by the hand fate had dealt her, Shivani Gupta has chosen to champion the cause of the disabled everywhere and is today one of India's best-known accessibility consultants. Her life is an extraordinary testament to true courage and the indomitability of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds.
