Bronze and Sunflower Book Review:

A beautifully written, timeless tale by Cao Wenxuan, best-selling Chinese author and 2016 recipient of the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award. Sunflower is an only child, and when her father is sent to the rural Cadre School, she has to go with him. Her father is an established artist from the city and finds his new life of physical labor and endless meetings exhausting. Sunflower is lonely and longs to play with the local children in the village across the river. When her father tragically drowns, Sunflower is taken in by the poorest family in the village, a family with a son named Bronze. Until Sunflower joins his family, Bronze was an only child, too, and hasn’t spoken a word since he was traumatized by a terrible fire. Bronze and Sunflower become inseparable, understanding each other as only the closest friends can. Translated from Mandarin, the story meanders gracefully through the challenges that face the family, creating a timeless story of the trials of poverty and the power of love and loyalty to overcome hardship.

Genetics Genomics and Breeding of Sunflower Book Review:

The sunflower has fascinated mankind for centuries. The oilseed sunflower contributes approximately ten percent of the world’s plant-derived edible oil and the confection type sunflower holds a considerable share of the directly consumed snacks market. In addition, sunflower is also grown as an ornamental for cut flowers, as well as in home gardens. We are now embarking on the age of genomics which will expedite the process of genetic improvement of crops. There has been an explosion of information on genetic markers, DNA sequences, and genomic resources for most major food crops including sunflower. This volume is intended to bridge traditional research with modern molecular investigations on sunflower.

The Sunflower Girl Book Review:

Rosanna Chiofalo returns with another evocative, beautifully written novel set against the stunning vistas of Tuscany . . . In the fields around Tuscany in summertime, sunflowers grow in profusion—wave upon wave of gold and green standing tall against the Italian sky. But for Signora Maria Ferraro, the bright yellow blooms carry only bitter memories. Though she loved them as a child, sunflowers have come to represent the most painful episode of her life. Not even her cherished daughter, Anabella, knows what happened to her during World War II, when the Germans overran her hometown of Florence and Signora Ferraro fell in love with a Resistance fighter. In the aftermath of loss and grief she found salvation through an unlikely source—cultivating roses on her farm in the Tuscan countryside. Now the blossoms symbolize everything that is both good and safe, and she nurtures them with as much care as she guards her past. Yet to Anabella, the rose farm that once delighted her has become little more than a pretty prison. Despite her beautiful surroundings, Anabella longs for more. During one of her regular visits to Siena to sell their flowers, Anabella encounters a handsome young artist named Dante Galletti. His canvases are filled with images of a girl who looks just like Anabella—and Dante claims to have seen her in his dreams, running through a sunflower field. Through Dante, Anabella begins to see sunflowers, her cloistered existence, and the world itself through new eyes. As their relationship deepens, Anabella knows she will soon have to choose between loyalty to her mother, and the risks and rewards of living on her own terms. Alternating between the viewpoints of both mother and daughter, and between Italy during World War II and a quarter-century later, The Sunflower Girl is a poignant and moving story of the choices we make in the name of love, and the secrets that echo through generations.

The Sunflower Book Review:

A Holocaust survivor's surprising and thought-provoking study of forgiveness, justice, compassion, and human responsibility, featuring contributions from the Dalai Lama, Harry Wu, Cynthia Ozick, Primo Levi, and more. While imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, Simon Wiesenthal was taken one day from his work detail to the bedside of a dying member of the SS. Haunted by the crimes in which he had participated, the soldier wanted to confess to--and obtain absolution from--a Jew. Faced with the choice between compassion and justice, silence and truth, Wiesenthal said nothing. But even years after the way had ended, he wondered: Had he done the right thing? What would you have done in his place? In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women respond to Wiesenthal's questions. They are theologians, political leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists, Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia, Cambodia, China and Tibet. Their responses, as varied as their experiences of the world, remind us that Wiesenthal's questions are not limited to events of the past.

Sunflower Book Review:

Gyula Krúdy is a marvelous writer who haunted the taverns of Budapest and lived on its streets while turning out a series of mesmerizing, revelatory novels that are among the masterpieces of modern literature. Krúdy conjures up a world that is entirely his own—dreamy, macabre, comic, and erotic—where urbane sophistication can erupt without warning into passion and madness. In Sunflower young Eveline leaves the city and returns to her country estate to escape the memory of her desperate love for the unscrupulous charmer Kálmán. There she encounters the melancholy Álmos-Dreamer, who is languishing for love of her, and is visited by the bizarre and beautiful Miss Maszkerádi, a woman who is a force of nature. The plot twists and turns; elemental myth mingles with sheer farce: Krúdy brilliantly illuminates the shifting contours and acid colors of the landscape of desire. John Bátki’s outstanding translation of Sunflower is the perfect introduction to the world of Gyula Krúdy, a genius as singular as Robert Walser, Bruno Schulz, or Joseph Roth.

Flavonoids of the Sunflower Family Asteraceae Book Review:

Flavonoids are secondary plant products that have previously been shown to be helpful in determining relationships among plant groups. This work presents comprehensively the occurrence, patterns of variation, and systematic and evolutionary importance of flavonoids in the sunflower family (Asteraceae), the largest family of flowering plants (23,000 species). It gathers together the more than 2500 reports of flavonoids in Asteraceae published between 1950 to the present and interprets these data in context of new taxonomic (especially generic) alignments. The authors discuss flavonoid patterns with reference to modern phylogenetic studies based on morphology and DNA data. This book provides, therefore, the most exhaustive synthesis and evaluation of the systematic and evolutionary import of flavonoids ever accomplished for any large family of angiosperms.

Law and Politics of the Taiwan Sunflower and Hong Kong Umbrella Movements Book Review:

"Rarely do acts of civil disobedience come in such grand fashion as Taiwan's Sunflower movement and Hong Kong's Umbrella movement. The two protests came in regions and jurisdictions that many have underestimated as regards furthering notions of political speech, democratisation, and testing the limits of authority. This book breaks down these two movements and explores their complex legal and political significance. The collection ... [addresses] the legal and political significance of both movements, including the complex questions they posed as regards democracy, rule of law, authority, and freedom of speech. Given that occupational type protests have become a prominent method for protesters to make their cases to both citizens and governments, exploring the legalities of these significant protests and establishing best practices will be important to future movements, wherever they may transpire. With this in mind, the book does not stop at implications for Taiwan and Hong Kong, but talks about its subject matter from a comparative, international perspective."--

Sunflower Sky Book Review:

"Sunflower Sky" is the third & concluding volume of the trilogy begun with "Crow on the Wire" & continued with "The High Lonesome Sound". This volume is also a poetic journal covering the summer & early fall, & mostly set in Portland, Oregon. Although "Sunflower Sky" is connected to the earlier volumes, each can be read & enjoyed separately. There's a distinct focus on time, mortality, & the respite found in love & compassion in these poems.

The Sunflower Book Review:

"May our love for the Sun, the will of God, be as strong as the sunflower's, so that even in days of hardship and sorrow we will continue to sail unerringly along the sea of life, following the directions of the barometer and compass of God's will that leads us to the safe haven of eternity." This is a thoroughly practical manual of the spiritual life focusing on the central goal of every Christian: learning the will of God and struggling to mold our life to it, just as Christ "humbled Himself and became obedient." (Phil. 2:8) Even more fundamentally, St John addresses the question of why we should care about God's will. Finally, the reader will find eternal wisdom running through these writings on questions of theodicy, free will, and Divine Providence. This work is reminiscent of the classic text Unseen Warfare in its historical genesis as an Orthodox redaction of an originally Roman Catholic text. First published in 1627 as The Heliotropium it was the work of a German Jesuit writer Jeremias Drexelius. The future St John adapted this text for an Orthodox audience as a student and then teacher at the Kiev Academy in the 1670's but it was not published until 1714, just a year before the author's death. This is the first English edition of St John's text, further edited and abbreviated for the contemporary reader.

Sunflower Book Review:

This collection of poetry is a reflection on life. I created some of these from the age of 10 up to my current age; 20. I am aware that my naivety to some issues may be reflected in the meaning of some of the poems, but it is this naivety which propelled me into mastering the art of poetry and understanding how a few words can change someone’s life. I hope that this book will leave you questioning something about your life; and from that question you will find the answer. Inspirations link to Shakespeare, Duffy, Byron & Keats. These literature legends to me captivate everything there is to the art of the English language; the pronunciation of words, the ambiguity to a sentence which can catapult any emotion at any time and finally the linguistically beautiful style to which you read them. Through manipulating my emotions and views of life from a young age I feel I have been able to pen poems which are relevant and hard hitting. I find that if your own work can move you to tears or laughter; then there is a gem which needs to be discovered. This book highlights issues which the media tip-toe around; child abuse, murder, reasons for war, social mobility, ethnicity, sexuality and rape. However; this book also looks at the highs of society, love, personal wealth, joy, success and acceptance to our own faults. I am grateful to this collection even though I created them as I feel deep down they created me. The messages in the book will allow you as the reader to become inevitably the writer; possibly wanting to indulge to the point you feel this is aimed at you. Many poems in this collection have totally different styles, meanings and impacts to the last. Although this may not be considered the most consistent of reads; I have purposely created an ecliptic collection which reflects the constant changes of life. This is a somewhat biography of the evolving world as I grew in it; I strongly feel this has never been done and as I read them, I can see how I have strengthened as an individual in society. ‘The Child’ & ’My Hero’ are two of the poems I created when I was 10 years of age; the first one has always been considered as a reflection of my life; however it is the opposite. Even at that age I was able to put myself into another’s situation and saw a poem being penned which I would always look back on to draw inspiration. ‘My Hero’ was dedicated to all those who have lost their life trying to create a better world; not necessarily in the war. This book is strong minded and hard-hitting. I am very certain of myself and this is dominant in the poetry. This strength creates what others may not feel comfortable reading but deep down know that these issues exist and will carry on existing unless real action is taken. A mixture of political and emotional subjects; and sometimes both inter-twined; this book is aimed towards anyone in the general public. However, the subjects may not be apparent to everyone as some are representative of my age and not of my surroundings. Overall; I hope that the reader gets the satisfaction reading my poetry as I did writing it. The magic of poetry I feel has faded greatly within education and possibly society. I feel that the national curriculum needs to establish a better way of understanding what hundreds years of poetry has given us to date. I believe in myself as a poet and as a person; but most importantly I believe in this book as a collection of great poetry which I know will leave you wanting to read more. Thank you for taking the time to read this descriptor and I hope you enjoy the book. Yours Andrew Collins.
