When, in 2000, the National Theatre published its poll of the hundred best plays of the 20th century, David Hare had written five of them. Yet he was born in 1947 into an anonymous suburban street in Hastings. It is a world he believes to be as completely vanished as Victorian England. Now in his first panoramic work of memoir, ending as Margaret Thatcher comes to power in 1979, David Hare describes his childhood, his Anglo-Catholic education and his painful apprenticeship to the trade of dramatist. He sets the progress of his own life against the history of a time in which faith in hierarchy, deference, religion, the empire and finally politics all withered away. Only belief in private virtue remains. In his customarily dazzling prose and with great warmth and humour, David Hare explores how so radical a shift could have occurred, and how it is reflected in his own lifelong engagement with two disparate art forms - film and theatre. In The Blue Touch Paper David Hare describes a life of trial and error: both how he became a writer and the high price he and those around him paid for that decision.

A moving new middle-grade novel from the Newbery Honor author of RULES. When Lucy's family moves to an old house on a lake, Lucy tries to see her new home through her camera's lens, as her father has taught her -- he's a famous photographer, away on a shoot. Will her photos ever meet his high standards? When she discovers that he's judging a photo contest, Lucy decides to enter anonymously. She wants to find out if her eye for photography is really special -- or only good enough. As she seeks out subjects for her photos, Lucy gets to know Nate, the boy next door. But slowly the camera reveals what Nate doesn't want to see: his grandmother's memory is slipping away, and with it much of what he cherishes about his summers on the lake. This summer, Nate will learn about the power of art to show truth. And Lucy will learn how beauty can change lives . . . including her own.

Today man is nefarious for two reasons. One is due to lack of insight and another in want of enlightenment. If by chance there is a change in him, immoralities turn into morality and his miseries change to mysticism. Both morality and mysticism would take us to mystique world. Empirically insight would be a near possibility than enlightenment. Though these two characters are theoretically valued, present changing values have made both values less valuable. From beginning of my profession, to think on these lines was mere impossible for the obsessions of self-sustenance I had possessed. Days progressed, obsessions reduced and being less busy and with more time made me to read and know the ancient knowledge. Rather than talking irrelevant things, spending time in club, sipping alcohol and for my bad feelings, I thought of reading some books of ancient history, and narrated certain concepts from these scriptures in my own way. Of late, I felt 'spirituality' is a cliché of the present decade doing ripples among the young and old. In these circumstances, I did ponder about psycho-pharmacological practice that would really help my psychiatric patients without the spirituality. With these thoughts, I defined 'spirituality' from the available 'spirit' in the market.

If you try to identify the basic qualities of a child "most likely to succeed" as an adult, what words might first come to mind? Independent? Likable? Creative? Disciplined? According to Dr. Joanne Joseph, the essence of a productive and healthy personality is a positive and secure self-image and a solid set of resilient attitudes and behaviors. The Resilient Child: Preparing Today's Youth for Tomorrow's World successfully integrates the latest information available about healthy cognitive development, self-esteem, and resilience to give parents and teachers practical suggestions for nurturing these qualities in children and adolescents. Dr. Joseph, an esteemed psychologist and child education consultant, skillfully shows how stories, television, nutrition, exercise, parental discipline style, and the child's individual characteristics each play a comprehensive role in the development of a child's self-esteem and resilience. With the author's clearly outlined strategies, parents and educators can guide children to be socially skillful, responsible, disciplined, good problem-solvers, and effective managers of the change and adversity inherent in today's world. Elaborating beyond what others have identified as the elements of a productive personality, Dr. Joseph uses a series of inspiring anecdotes and documented research to discuss the following: what experts do and do not know about the development of self-esteem; how parents and teachers can actively contribute to the natural development of a child's self-esteem; how to promote resilience in children through happy and difficult times; the kinds of characteristics that differentiate children from each other; how to liberate a child's inner strengths to build self-esteem and resilience; how literature and the media can teach resilient and productive values and behaviors; styles of parental discipline and their influence on the development of the child; and more.

The story is set in the days before the revolution that deposed Baby Doc , and makes several swings between Haiti under the corrupt and repressive military rule, and the small Texas town of Longbottom. A U.S medical team comprising four physicians, a black dentist, Dr. Bailey, and two nurses, Zulla, also black, and Pam fly to Haiti under the leadership of Dr. Bone to conduct free clinics as a start of a help the poor program. During the stopover in Port-au-Prince, they witness a rada(mild) voodoo ceremony, meet shady Minister of Health de Villeneueve, co-sponser of the program, and discover that half their seperately medical supplies are missing. The team travels by minivan though the bleak countryside and over the mountains to the northern city of Cap Haitian, their base for the clinics, driven by the 20-year-old live wire Marcel, who has an important part to play in the story. Bone has a hard time maintaining harmony among his temperamental fellow physicians, one of whom, a married man falls for Pam. The team is put up at the once prosperous hotel owned by a German expatriot Hans Boch. The first and third clinics are conducted in the church of Reverend Purdy, something of a stufed shirt, who has a severly depressed wife, and in the course of his stay Bone befriends Judy Cawthorn. who is doing research on voodoo, and Father Morissot,a Catholic priest who enlists Bone's aide in saving the life of a certain Henri who has been place under a death curse by the powerful and slightly crazed houngan, or head voodoo priest, Chauvelin. During the second clinic, held in a small outlying school/church, Bone receives a threat from a Chauvelin henchman, and on his way back to Cap Haitian glimpses a zombie. Untoward events occur: Bone is nearly struck by a speeding car (careless driving? a warning?), and one morning comes upon signs of a voodoo curse ouside his door. Bailey, his interest piqued by voodoo, visits the home of Mambo Leboux, a local voodoo priestess, and finds evidence of the missing medical supplies. Back in Longbottom, bone's friend Hal, owner of a furniture store, as well as a Justice-of-the-Peace and the towns undertaker, learns that Zulla's husband Jake has seemingly disappeared. Jake, spied on by town gossip Aunt Povey, has been having a fling with a beautician, Gladys, who has drug connections, as Jake once had. Hal and his wife have a wayward adopted son who later features in the plot. In Cap Haitian, de Villeneuve goes to Leboux's house to meet Chavelin and receive from him half the money from the black market sale of the stolen medical supplies. Chauvelin, who has put a death curse on a woman who offended him, kidnaps Bailey and arranges to release Bailey if Bone will not undertake to interfere with the curse. Bone is dramacically relieved of his dilemma by Marcel, and boch rescuses Bailey. while a captive, Bailey had found a phial of zombie powder and takes it out of curosity. Home in Longbottom and reconciled with Jake, Zulla persuades members of her Ebony social club to participate in a trial "rada" voodoo ceremony with largely comic results. Morissot calls Bone to say Henri has been poisoned by Chauvelin, and Bone flies back to Cap Haitian to try and protect the priest, now under threats himself, and see that Chauvelin in brought to justice. In a remote village Chauvelin is about to perform a petro(sinister) voodoo ceremony at which he will sacrifice a baby. Bone goes there with Marcel and Leboux's marksman son Claude. The baby is saved, but Chauvelin escapes (later to be shot by Claude, Bone learns). Bailey has become obsessed with the beautiful Zulla and tries to seduce her, but is repulsed. Though a successful dentist, Bailey has deep psychological scars from hi
