When her mother, broken by repeated childbirths, takes her own life and poisons her two youngest children, Chris is left with her father to run the farm on her own. Soon she is alone, and for the first time can choose how to spend her life. But as the First World War begins, everything changes, and the young men leave Scotland for battle. The first in Gibbon's classic trilogy A Scot's Quair, Sunset Song is infused with local vernacular, and innovatively blends Scots and English in an intense description of Scottish life in the early twentieth century.

A startling encounter on a New York subway platform leads two strangers to a run-down tenement where a life or death decision must be made. In that small apartment, “Black” and “White,” as the two men are known, begin a conversation that leads each back through his own history, mining the origins of two fundamentally opposing world views. White is a professor whose seemingly enviable existence of relative ease has left him nonetheless in despair. Black, an ex-con and ex-addict, is the more hopeful of the men–though he is just as desperate to convince White of the power of faith as White is desperate to deny it. Their aim is no less than this: to discover the meaning of life. Deft, spare, and full of artful tension, The Sunset Limited is a beautifully crafted, consistently thought-provoking, and deceptively intimate work by one of the most insightful writers of our time.

Set in Michigan, The Last Sunset chronicles the unexpected and heartwarming journey of Steve Hadley – a restless, cantankerous college student who discovers new meaning for both life and love through friendship with an 83 year old man. Told via insightful vignettes and anecdotes from both the old man’s distant past and the young man’s evolving present, the story seamlessly blends flashbacks and engaging narrative to form a compelling and provocative tale with surprising depth and many layers of meaning. In no small literary feat, the author successfully merges one character’s memories with another’s current life. “Real time” events in the story evolve and coincide with the memories of the past, with the trajectory of both stories ultimately leading to a similar destination. Ordered to complete 1000 hours of community service for a college prank, Steve is “sentenced” to serving his time at the Pioneer Manor Nursing Home in Evergreen, Michigan, run by Nancy Hackett, the head nurse, and her husband Barton Hackett, the Executive Director. It immediately becomes clear that Steve’s time at the nursing home will represent much more than he imagines, and that chance and destiny will be meeting at a surprising crossroads. When Steve pulls into the nursing home in his white mustang, patient Moses Bailey notices the young man and is immediately reminded of his of his own, distant youth – sailing and playing ice hockey in small-town Michigan. His fond reminiscing is interrupted by a pretty yet unassuming student nurse, Dawn McNally, the younger sister of Nurse Hackett. Bailey’s retrospection unfolds through detailed flashbacks, beginning with the summer of 1939, when the struggling artist becomes obsessed with Sarah, a striking, sophisticated woman interested in his paintings – but married to an older man. Enamored of the art and intrigued by the artist, Sarah sees in Moses everything she wishes she had in her own husband. The seeds of a problematic romance are planted as Moses prepares for his first exhibit. Steve’s love interest with Dawn has auspicious beginnings. After he accidentally knocks her to the floor while entering Moses’ room, Steve notices she limps, and believes he caused it. Dawn’s past is revealed as she remembers her childhood dreams of becoming a nurse, but beneath the dreams lies a murky, troubling childhood which drives her simmering anger and hostility toward Steve. The stories of Steve, Dawn and Moses unfold, as Dawn slowly warms up to Steve, and the flashback romance between Moses and Sarah takes shape, unfettered yet seemingly doomed by her unhappy marriage. As Moses deals with the guilt of loving another man’s wife, Steve comes to understand the tension and anger in Dawn, the by-product of a troubled childhood and an abusive father – the man who caused her slight deformity and limp. As the love between Steve and Dawn grows, her own insecurities fade, and her confidence grows. Events unfurl in rapid succession as Steve and Barton clash over his abuse of Dawn. As Steve and Dawn plan a “great escape” designed to fulfill Moses’ wish to see a sunset on lake Michigan one last time before he dies, the heartbreak of long-ago unfulfilled love emerges as Moses and Sarah endure separation bonded by an unshakeable yet forbidden love. As past and present converge, Steve and Dawn fulfill Moses’ wish, and his last sunset coincides with his remembrances of the happiness of his ultimate reunion and marriage to Sarah. When Moses later dies, the young couple returns to the beach to pay tribute to their friend. More than a recounting of fictional characters and events, The Last Sunset delves into deep issues of love, redemption and forgiveness. The almost spiritual connection between circumstance and destiny is revealed as pieces of a larger “life puzzle” fall into place, and the young ultimately learn from the old, and

Plant shutdowns in Canada and the United States from 1969 to 1984 led to an ongoing and ravaging industrial decline of the Great Lakes Region. Industrial Sunset offers a comparative regional analysis of the economic and cultural devastation caused by the shutdowns, and provides an insightful examination of how mill and factory workers on both sides of the border made sense of their own displacement. The history of deindustrialization rendered in cultural terms reveals the importance of community and national identifications in how North Americans responded to the problem. Based on the plant shutdown stories told by over 130 industrial workers, and drawing on extensive archival and published sources, and songs and poetry from the time period covered, Steve High explores the central issues in the history and contemporary politics of plant closings. In so doing, this study poses new questions about group identification and solidarity in the face of often dramatic industrial transformation.

Hutch has been the Academy’s best pilot for decades. She’s had numerous first contact encounters and even became a minor celebrity. But world politics have shifted from exploration to a growing fear that the program will run into an extraterrestrial race more advanced than humanity and war. Despite taking part in the recent scientific breakthrough that rejuvenates the human body and expands one’s lifespan, Hutch finds herself as a famous interstellar pilot with little to do, until a message from an alien race arrives. The message is a piece of music from an unexplored area. Despite the fact that this alien race could pose a great danger and that this message could have taken several thousand years to travel, the program prepares the last interstellar ship for the journey. As the paranoia grows, Hutch and her crew make an early escape—but what they find at the other end of the galaxy is completely unexpected.

This book presents research concerning the effects of the Camino to Finisterre on the daily lives of the populations who live along the route, and the heritagization processes that exploitation of the Camino for tourism purposes involves. Rather than focusing on the route to Santiago de Compostela and the pilgrimage itself, it instead examines a peculiar part of the route, the Camino to Finisterre, employing multiple perspectives that consider the processes of heritagization, the effects of the pilgrimage on local communities, and the motivations of the pilgrims. The book is based on a three-year research project and is the result of a multidisciplinary collaboration between anthropologists, sociologists, historians and archaeologists. Instead of ending in Santiago, as the rest of the Caminos do, this route continues to the cape of Finisterre on the Galician Atlantic coast. This part of the Camino de Santiago is not officially recognized by the Catholic Church and does not count as part of reaching Compostela, the recognition granted by the Catholic Church to those pilgrims who have walked at least 100 km. For this reason, as well as its relationship with the sun cult, many pilgrims call this route “the Camino of the atheists.” In fact, the Catholic Church is a strong force for the heritagization of the rest of the Caminos, and maintains a clear ignoratio strategy concerning the Finisterre route: Officially, the church neither opposes nor recognizes this route.

Under the banner of a Holy War, masterminded in Berlin and unleashed from Constantinople, the Germans and the Turks set out in 1914 to foment violent revolutionary uprisings against the British in India and the Russians in Central Asia. It was a new and more sinister version of the old Great Game, with world domination as its ultimate aim. Here, told in epic detail and for the first time, is the true story behind John Buchan's classic wartime thriller Greenmantle, recounted through the adventures and misadventures of the secret agents and others who took part in it. It is an ominously topical tale today in view of the continuing turmoil in this volatile region where the Great Game has never really ceased.

"Powerful and important . . . an instant classic." —The Washington Post Book World The award-winning look at an ugly aspect of American racism by the bestselling author of Lies My Teacher Told Me, reissued with a new preface by the author In this groundbreaking work, sociologist James W. Loewen, author of the classic bestseller Lies My Teacher Told Me, brings to light decades of hidden racial exclusion in America. In a provocative, sweeping analysis of American residential patterns, Loewen uncovers the thousands of "sundown towns"—almost exclusively white towns where it was an unspoken rule that blacks weren't welcome—that cropped up throughout the twentieth century, most of them located outside of the South. Written with Loewen's trademark honesty and thoroughness, Sundown Towns won the Gustavus Myers Outstanding Book Award, received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Booklist, and launched a nationwide online effort to track down and catalog sundown towns across America. In a new preface, Loewen puts this history in the context of current controversies around white supremacy and the Black Lives Matter movement. He revisits sundown towns and finds the number way down, but with notable exceptions in exclusive all-white suburbs such as Kenilworth, Illinois, which as of 2010 had not a single black household. And, although many former sundown towns are now integrated, they often face "second-generation sundown town issues," such as in Ferguson, Missouri, a former sundown town that is now majority black, but with a majority-white police force.
