Fires in the Mirror by Anna Deavere Smith Book Summary:
Derived from interviews with a wide range of people who experienced or observed New York's 1991 Crown Heights racial riots, Fires In The Mirror is as distinguished a work of commentary on black-white tensions as it is a work of drama. In August 1991 simmering tensions in the racially polarized Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood of Crown Heights exploded into riots after a black boy was killed by a car in a rabbi's motorcade and a Jewish student was slain by blacks in retaliation. Fires in the Mirror is dramatist Anna Deavere Smith's stunning exploration of the events and emotions leading up to and following the Crown Heights conflict. Through her portrayals of more than two dozen Crown eights adversaries, victims, and eyewitnesses, using verbatim excerpts from their observations derived from interviews she conducted, Smith provides a brilliant, Rashoman-like documentary portrait of contemporary ethnic turmoil.

The Mirror at Midnight: A South African Journey by Adam Hochschild Book Summary:
History lies heavily on South Africa, and Adam Hochschild brings to bear a lifetime's familiarity with the country in an eye-opening work that blends history and reportage. Hochschild looks at the tensions of modern South Africa through a dramatic prism: the pivotal nineteenth-century Battle of Blood River -- which determined whether the Boers or the Zulus would control that part of the world -- and its contentious commemoration by rival groups 150 years later. This incisive book offers an unusual window onto a society that remains divided. In his epilogue, Hochschild extends his view to the astonishing political changes that have occurred in the country in recent years -- and the changes yet to be made.

In this compelling book, Elan Golomb identifies the crux of the emotional and psychological problems of millions of adults. Simply put, the children of narcissist -- offspring of parents whose interest always towered above the most basic needs of their sons and daughters -- share a common belief: They believe they do not have the right to exist. The difficulties experienced by adult children of narcissists can manifest themselves in many ways: for examples, physical self-loathing that takes form of overeating, anorexia, or bulimia; a self-destructive streak that causes poor job performance and rocky personal relationships; or a struggle with the self that is perpetuated in the adult's interaction with his or her own children. These dilemmas are both common and correctable, Dr. Golomb tells us. With an empathic blend of scholarship and case studies, along with her own personal narrative of her fight for self, Dr. Golomb plumbs the depths of this problem, revealing its mysterious hold on the affairs of otherwise bright, aware, motivated, and worthy people. Trapped in the Mirror explores.the nature of the paralysis and lack of motivation so many adults feelstress and its role in exacerbating childhood wrongswhy do many of our relationships seem to be "reruns" of the past how one's body image can be formed by faulty parenting how anger must be acknowledge to be overcomeand, most important, how even the most traumatized self can be healed.Rooted in a profoundly humanist traditional approach, and suffused with the benefit of the latest knowledge about intrafamily relationships, Trapped in the Mirror offers more than the average self-help book; it is truly the first self-heal book for millions.

It is, however, the same thing in the end, to the public; and, although the Admiralty may appear to be open to blame, the fault, if fault it be, arises from circumstances over which they have no control. The advantage of the balance sheet is that, at all events, the matter is brought before the public. I agree with the Honourable Member the Secretary to the Admiralty that it is expedient to make some provision to meet the objection; and I think it might be done by continuing the credits for a certain time. Mr. WARBURTON.--Several valuable and instructive Returns have been laid before the House with regard to the medical department of the army; and I wish to ask, whether similar Returns have been prepared with respect to the seamen on the different stations? If so, I trust they will be laid before the House, in order that we may test the comparative treatment of our seamen at different periods. SIR T. TROUBRIDGE.--The statistical accounts to which the Honourable Member refers have been in the course of preparation for several years, and 4X they are now in a state of forwardness. I believe they will be found perfectly satisfactory. I cannot say, exactly, when they will be produced; but I will take care that they shall be brought forward as soon as possible. Mr. HUME.--I wish to ask, whether any arrangement is likely to be made for the more regular payment of seamen, who, on returning home, frequently have large sums of money to receive, of which they are sometimes plundered in the course of a week?
