S. D. Goitein Letters of Medieval Jewish Traders

S. D. Goitein Letters of Medieval Jewish Traders

Modern international business has its origins in the overseas trade of the Middle Ages. Of the various communities active in trade in the Islamic countries at that time, records of only the Jewish community survive. Thousands of documents were preserved in the Cairo Geniza, a lumber room attached to the synagogue where discarded writings containing the name of God were deposited to preserve them from desecration. From them Professor Goitein has selected eighty letters that provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of the medieval Jewish traders. As the letters vividly illustrate, international trade depended on a network of personal relationships and mutual confidence. Organization was largely through partnerships, based usually on ties of common religion but often reinforced by family connections. Sometimes the partners of Jews were Christians or Muslims, and the letters show these merchants working together in greater harmony than has been thought, even in partnerships that lasted through generations. The services rendered to a friend or partner and those expected from him were great, and the book opens with an angry letter from a merchant who believed he had been let down by his friend.The life of a trader was full of dangers, as the letter describing a shipwreck illustrates, and put great strain on personal relationships. One of the most moving letters is that written to his wife by a man absent in India for many years while endeavoring to make the family's fortune...

Ian R. McEwan Pan. E Pomodor - My Passage to Puglia

When the journey began we didn't expect to buy a derelict "torretta" and a 10 acre olive farm in the Gargano, Puglia. My wife's father "escaped" from the village and lifestyle of Vico del Gargano. Each year he would return with his family for August and later, we too visited Vico each summer. For my wife in particular Vico always felt like home. She seemed to have a subliminal bond, perhaps acquired when she was brought to Vico as a baby and left in the care of her grandmother. We instinctively wanted to move to the area, but due to the remoteness, the dialect and strong family reaction we were deterred from doing so. Nonetheless, we continued to harbour dreams of the spur of Italy, its beautiful rugged coastline, its mountainous forested interior, its people, dialect and traditions that gave the impression that civilisation had simply passed the region by. One day the opportunity arose for us to escape the UK and we embarked on a long journey that would change our lives forever ...

D. H. Lawrence Sea and Sardinia

D. H. Lawrence Sea and Sardinia

David Herbert Richards Lawrence (1885-1930) was an English novelist, playwright, essayist, poet, literary critic and painter who published under the name D. H. Lawrence. He is valued by many as a visionary thinker and significant representative of modernism, as well as one of the finest writers in English literature. After the traumatic experience of World War I, Lawrence began what he termed his "savage pilgrimage," a time of voluntary exile, where he escaped with his wife from England and spent the remainder of his life travelling. In 1921, Lawrence joined the British literary tradition of writing a travelogue. He and his wife, Frieda, embarked on a journey to Sardinia for its promise of unspoiled primitiveness and lack of many tourists. "Sea and Sardinia" records Lawrence's voyage to Sardinia, revealing his response to the new landscape and inhabitants of this part of the Mediterranean. It is also a self-revealing journal in which Lawrence's passions, rages, and perspectives get frequent work-out.

Justin Petrone My Estonia 3. What Happened?

Justin Petrone My Estonia 3. What Happened?

This is the story of a man looking for his way. New York did not satisfy his soul, so he moved to Estonia, with his crazy wife, a kid, and six suitcases. Within 24 hours he found a home and had to learn how to make a fire. It did not satisfy his soul for long. Soon he had a house with four furnaces, and was making fires around the clock. His crazy Estonian wife started a publishing house that turned out well. Too well. He decided to become an academic. It did not satisfy him for long, but at least he met a real elf who inspired him. Then he decided to dabble in diplomacy. It did not feel right either. And he got depressed. There were too many drunks and neo-Nazis in this country, not to mention all the mice, lice, and ice. Writing books - bestsellers! - about those problems seemed to satisfy his soul. He thought he had found his niche, as a writer in a small town teeming with cafes and characters. Then, overnight, it all collapsed. The action in Justin Petrone ́s new book takes place mostly in two Estonian towns, folksy Viljandi and teacherly Tartu. It takes place from the year 2007 (the Bronze Soldier riots) until 2013 (when Petrone left Estonia amid a national scandal).

Schuyler T. Wallace Tin Lizard Tales. Reflections from a Train

The author, while on a train trip through the United States and Canada, describes and comments on the people and places he sees. His reflections – sometimes critical, sometimes comical – are eye-opening and wide in scope. The reader will enjoy Wallace's swats at thoughtless people, cringe at his depictions of animal cruelty, and laugh out loud at the personal predicaments he and his wife confront. Environmental stupidity, life in big cities, foolishness disguised as zealotry, terrorism, and political hacks are just a few of the topics he kicks around using the insight and common sense one might expect from an opinionated old man who's been around. Surprisingly, Wallace conveys warmth and unblushing tenderness – a threat to his crusty reputation.

Do you Have a Match? Bocadillos, Poppies, and Pilgrims is a personal account of my first walk across northern Spain on the 1200-year-old Camino de Santiago in 2003. I went there not knowing why. I was only following persistent chills and goose bumps that dogged me whenever I read anything about northern Spain and the Camino. I went because the Universe was pushing me a little more than gently in that direction. At the end of my third day walking, I met Petra who was to become my wife, my companion on my pilgrimage through life. The Universe had a reason to push me. It wanted me to meet Petra.

Stewart Edward White The Land of Footprints

Stewart Edward White The Land of Footprints

Some travel books authors try to impress the reader with a full sense of the danger and hardship they have undergone. Others are deadly afraid of bragging about their adventures, knowing, for instance, that hundreds of others have been charged by a lion and may be reading their book. In The Land of Footprints, Stewart Edward White attempts to be the ideal travel book author, one who tells the reader what the country, its people, and its animals are really like, "not in vague and grandiose 'word paintings,' not in strange and foreign sounding words and phrases, but in comparison with something they know." The Land of Footprints is the enormous enjoyable, immensely readable memoir of Stewart Edward White's year spent in East Equatorial Africa at the beginning of the 20th century.STEWART EDWARD WHITE (1873-1946) was born in Michigan and lived in California where he became known as the author of many articles, short stories, and books about the state's mining and lumber camps and his explorations around the world. He devoted the last thirty years of his life to writing accounts of his wife's mediumistic explorations of the inner dimensions of life.

Alexander William Kinglake Eothen. Traces of Travel Brought Home from the East

The camel kneels to receive her load, and for a while she will allow the packing to go on with silent resignation; but when she begins to suspect that her master is putting more than a just burden upon her poor hump, she turns round her supple neck, and looks sadly upon the increasing load, and then gently remonstrates against the wrong with the sigh of a patient wife.-from "Chapter XVII: The Desert"It's a century and a half old, and yet it is as strikingly modern as any literary memoir published today. A solitary Western traveler in the Middle East in 1834, this is an extraordinary work of travel writing that is more about the author's internal journey than it is about monuments and museums, one that replicates the personal experience of travel and how it changes who we are. Kinglake's intimate, conversational style and his sense of humor and irony lend Eothen-the title means "from the early dawn" or "from the East"-an air that still feels as fresh and original in the 21st century as it must have when it was first published in 1844.British writer and historian ALEXANDER WILLIAM KINGLAKE (1809-1891) was educated at Eton

Rex Terpening Bent Props . Blow Pots

Rex Terpening Bent Props . Blow Pots

Crash landings were part of the job in the early 1930s, when Rex Terpening started out in arctic aviation. As an air engineer for Canadian Airways in the Northwest Territories, Terpening took the right-hand seat in the cockpit and flew "on operations" daily, warming the oil and the engine on winter mornings, refuelling, and inevitably mending both engine and aircraft when things went wrong.Terpening's beat stretched from Fort McMurray to the Arctic Ocean, and his remarkable bush-flying stories tell of planes wandering lost over unmapped muskeg, perilous rescue missions to retrieve stranded missionaries, dogged searches for downed flyers lost on the Barrens and emergency landings in blizzards on nameless pothole lakes. But there is humour, too, in tales of a drunken wolverine, a planeload of rambunctious sled dogs and a trip in a tiny Fairchild with a Catholic priest and the wife of an Anglican minister. And there are vivid evocations of the sheer joy of flying over the Arctic's raw beauty.Rex Terpening not only kept a meticulous journal from which these stories are derived, he carried his camera everywhere, snapping pictures of downed machines, their step-by-step resurrections, the men who flew them and those who fixed them. Most of those men and machines are gone now, but they live on in Bent Props and Blow Pots.

Game Of Thrones: The Graphic Novel

You've read the books. You've watched the hit series on HBO. Now acclaimed novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson bring George R.R.Martin's epic fantasy masterwork "A Game of Thrones" to majestic new life in the pages of this full-color graphic novel. Comprised of the initial six issues of the graphic series, this is the first volume in what is sure to be one of the most coveted collaborations of the year. Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen's brothers Jamie and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister - the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind.

William Simpson Meeting the Sun

William Simpson Meeting the Sun

On 15 September 1872, a young Mongol girl was chosen from a number of candidates to be wife and Empress to the seventeen-year old Tongzhi Emperor of China. She was Xiaozheyi, and was well-educated, attractive, and displayed a talent for poetry, music and art. The forthcoming nuptials set the International Settlements abuzz with excitement, and such was the interest in Europe that one of the leading British newspapers of the time, The Illustrated London News, decided to send a correspondent to China specifically to report on the spectacle. The man chosen was WILLIAM SIMPSON, who had already achieved some fame as a correspondent and illustrator in the Crimean War, in India and in Abyssinia. Simpson, however, rapidly seized the opportunity to extend the trip to a round-the-world journey from London through France, Italy, Egypt, the Suez Canal, Ceylon, Malaya, and several months in China. He then continued eastwards to Japan, America (where his timely arrival in California enabled him to observe the US Army's campaign against the Modoc Indians), and finally back to England. Meeting the Sun, his account of this journey, was published in 1874, a few months after the publication of Jules Verne's popular Around the World in 80 Days. The similarities between the two books are interesting, even though one is a work of fiction and the other of fact; indeed, it is highly likely that Simpson's earlier newspaper accounts of these travels in the Illustrated London News and the D...

The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street

By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids waiting at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street. In the 1990s, Belfort became one of the most infamous kingpins in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. It's an extraordinary story of greed, power, and excess that no one could invent: the tale of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices to making hundreds of millions - until it all came crashing down.

D. H. Lawrence Sea and Sardinia

Sea and Sardinia is a travel book by the English writer D. H. Lawrence. It describes his excursion with his wife Frieda from Taormina to the interior of Sardinia. They visited Cagliari, Mandas, Sorgono, and Nuoro. Despite the brevity of his visit, Lawrence distils an essence of the island and its people that is still recognizable today. "Very dark under the great carob tree as we go down the steps. Dark still the garden. Scent of mimosa, and then of jasmine. The lovely mimosa tree invisible. Dark the stony path. The goat whinnies out of her shed. The broken Roman tomb which lolls right over the garden track does not fall on me as I slip under its massive tilt. Ah, dark garden, dark garden, with your olives and your wine, your medlars and mulberries and many almond trees, your steep terraces ledged high up above the sea, I am leaving you, slinking out. Out between the rosemary hedges, out of the tall gate, on to the cruel steep stony road. So under the dark, big eucalyptus trees, over the stream, and up towards the village. There, I have got so far."D. H. Lawrence was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter whose works represent a reflection upon the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization. In his writings Lawrence confronts issues relating to emotional health and vitality, spontaneity, and instinct often apposing current social acceptance. E. M.

Mitchell Owen Smith The Two Caminos. Magic and Mystery on the Camino de Santiago

After a health scare, Mitch starts a series of life changes that ultimately lead to the most unlikely of journeys: walking 800 kilometers across northern Spain along the Camino de Santiago. Setting out with his wife of thirty years Mary Lou, and a promise to "follow everything and every opportunity that crosses my path", they are woefully unprepared for the journey ahead; and would have to quickly adapt to the physical, mental and spiritual challenges that at times seemed far heavier than the packs they carried. Through backaches and blisters, bug bites and sunburns, and old injuries that threatened to end the pilgrimage shortly after starting: the Camino challenged, encouraged and called them on. Coincidences and visions, questions and epiphanies, triumph and tragedy, old burdens and new friends, all began to weave a powerful story that challenged long-held beliefs.
