Islands Identity and the Literary Imagination Book Review:

Australia is the planet’s sole island continent. This book argues that the uniqueness of this geography has shaped Australian history and culture, including its literature. Further, it shows how the fluctuating definition of the island continent throws new light on the relationship between islands and continents in the mapping of modernity. The book links the historical and geographical conditions of islands with their potent role in the imaginary of European colonisation. It prises apart the tangled web of geography, fantasy, desire and writing that has framed the Western understanding of islands: their real and material conditions and their symbolic resonance from antiquity into globalised modernity. The book also traces how this spatial imaginary has shaped the modern 'man' who is imagined as being the island's natural inhabitant or mirror. Importantly, the book challenges these habits of thought by their relocation within larger topological and imaginary visions from islanders themsleves.

No Man is an Island Book Review:

This is the book about immigration detention that all Australians need to read. During the time of the Gillard government, 24-year-old Sydneysider Adele Dumont accepted a volunteer position to teach English to men in immigration detention on Christmas Island. She did not expect to find the work so rewarding or the people she met so interesting. When she was offered a job working at Curtin detention centre near Derby in Western Australia, she took it. Working at Curtin required her to live a fly-in fly-out lifestyle, feeling never quite settled in one place or the other. She lived in a donga when she was in WA, her life full of bus trips to the detention centre and the work she did there; back home in Sydney, she was overwhelmed by the choices people had and the things they didn't do with those choices. What kept her returning to Curtin were her students: men from many lands who had sacrificed all they knew for a chance to live in Australia; men who were unfailingly polite to her in a situation that was barbarous. Slowly, falteringly, these men learned her language and taught her things about their culture. No Man is an Island is the story that will make the issue of immigration detention accessible to far more interested Australians than any number of stern newspaper articles. It is a vividly told story that is full of characters and humanity. It is the story about immigration detention that all Australians need to read.

No Christian Man Is an Island Book Review:

"The sun is setting in America, and darkness is falling. Our nation needs knights." Truth is under assault in America, causing her to weaken from within. In NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND, Dex Bahr argues that at no time in our history is it more crucial for Christian men to have the courage to be knights in defense of God, country and family. Bahr illuminates readers to the hostile spiritual and ideological forces that have hijacked faith, education, politics and media and why they must be defeated Praise for NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND: "I highly recommend this book for the author's passion and heartfelt desire for the Christian man to not be passive, but to be actively involved in his Christian life. We are living in a world of decay and though we will not be able to stop it from its downward spiral, we have the chance to slow down its course, and we begin with a good comprehension and knowledge of our situation. NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND thoughtfully addresses these issues and clearly challenges us to a passionate pursuit of God. The opportunity to be a hero of God is out there, just go and do it. 'The world has yet to see what God could do to a fully surrendered man.' By Henry Varley (friend of D.L. Moody)." -Jofri Frigillana, M. Div.; Th. M. (Talbot Theological Seminary) Good Shepherd Baptist Church - Anaheim, CA ************************************************************************* Dex Bahr is a freelance writer. A former broadcast news reporter, Mr. Bahr has worked in major markets, including KJEO-TV in Fresno, California and OCN in Santa Ana, California. Mr. Bahr has been a Christian since 1980 and has served the Lord as a lay speaker and small group leader. He is married with two children.

No One is an Island Book Review:

This book examines Iceland vis-à-vis international affairs, with special focus on immigration, foreign aid, Arctic policy, climate change and Iceland´s international image, identity and perception. All issues that play an important role in Iceland´s foreign and domestic policy. This book addresses Iceland as a small state from a variety of perspectives offered by academics and officials. In this book, the authors explore how Iceland’s domestic and international behaviour is marked by its smallness, suggesting that the Icelandic perspective is perhaps more idiosyncratic than international.

Besides their tent, they had a Primus stove, a kettle, a couple of saucepans, pots, cups and plates of enamel, pewter forks and, stainless knives, cases of provisions, three sleeping-bags, three folding stools, and other oddments. While Warrender and Armstrong were stretching and pegging out the tent, Pratt started the stove, filled the kettle from the river, and assembled such utensils as they needed for their tea. These operations were punctuated by renewed sounds of shooting, which were drawing nearer through the woods that skirted the clearing. "I say, you chaps," cried Pratt, "I wonder if I talked nicely, if I could coax out of them something gamey for supper to-night?" "Wouldn't you like to sing for your supper, like little Tommy Tucker?" said Armstrong.[...]".

We Fed an Island Book Review:

FOREWORD BY LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA AND LUIS A. MIRANDA, JR. The true story of how a group of chefs fed hundreds of thousands of hungry Americans after Hurricane Maria and touched the hearts of many more Chef José Andrés arrived in Puerto Rico four days after Hurricane Maria ripped through the island. The economy was destroyed and for most people there was no clean water, no food, no power, no gas, and no way to communicate with the outside world. Andrés addressed the humanitarian crisis the only way he knew how: by feeding people, one hot meal at a time. From serving sancocho with his friend José Enrique at Enrique’s ravaged restaurant in San Juan to eventually cooking 100,000 meals a day at more than a dozen kitchens across the island, Andrés and his team fed hundreds of thousands of people, including with massive paellas made to serve thousands of people alone.. At the same time, they also confronted a crisis with deep roots, as well as the broken and wasteful system that helps keep some of the biggest charities and NGOs in business. Based on Andrés’s insider’s take as well as on meetings, messages, and conversations he had while in Puerto Rico, We Fed an Island movingly describes how a network of community kitchens activated real change and tells an extraordinary story of hope in the face of disasters both natural and man-made, offering suggestions for how to address a crisis like this in the future. Beyond that, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Chef Relief Network of World Central Kitchen for efforts in Puerto Rico and beyond.
