Black Ice

Cary, Lorene

  • Edition: 1st Printing
  • Book condition: Very Good
  • Quantity available: 1
Vintage Books, 1991. 1st Printing. Trade Paperback. Very Good. First printing. Ink name inside. 1991 Trade Paperback. 237 pp. In 1972 Lorene Cary, a bright, ambitious black teenager from Philadelphia, was transplanted into the formerly all-white, all-male environs of the elite St. Paul's School in New Hampshire, where she became a scholarship student in a boot camp for future American leaders. Like any good student, she was determined to succeed. But Cary was also determined to succeed without selling out. This wonderfully frank and perceptive memoir describes the perils and ambiguities of that double role, in which failing calculus and winning a student election could both be interpreted as betrayals of one's skin. Black Ice is also a universally recognizable document of a woman's adolescence; it is, as Houston Baker says, a journey into selfhood that resonates with sober reflection, intellignet passion, and joyous love.

Lightly rubbed. 1995 Trade Paperback. 310 pp. "Stephen G.Haw begins with the prehistoric civilisations of 4000 years ago, and from there to the centuries of China's silk trade. Some of the most significant inventions of the modern world were invented in China - paper, gunpowder and the magnetic compass. The author describes the glories of the Tang and Song dynasties which saw the creation of the great Chinese cities to the period of its decline and the efforts of Europe to subdue this giant land. It covers the tumult of the Chinese Revolution and the dramatic changes in political policies since the 1970s right up to the present day. It also looks at the handover of Hong Kong, the continuing difficulties of Taiwan and how China is emerging as the world's largest market. 'The author manages to get 2 million years into 300 pages - and he does it without gimmicks or colour pictures. An excellent addition to a series which is alread ... Read more

Vintage Books, 1978. 1st Printing. Trade Paperback. Good. First printing. Pages toned. 1978 Trade Paperback. We have more books available by this author!. 191 pp. "India: A Wounded Civilization, by V. S. Naipaul, is the second book of his "India" trilogy, after An Area of Darkness, and before India: A Million Mutinies Now. It was on his third visit to India, prompted by the Emergency of 1975, that Naipaul came to write this book. In this work he casts a more analytical eye than before on Indian attitudes while recapitulating and probing the feelings previously aroused in him by this vast, mysterious and agonized continent. What he saw and heard on this visit reinforced his conviction that India, wounded by many centuries of foreign rule, has not yet found an ideology of regeneration. Reviewers have described it as a work of fierce candour and precision. Mr Naipaul, born in Trinidad (an island in West Indies just off the northeastern coast of Venezuela), is a descendant of Hindus who emigrated ... Read more

Scribner, 2004. Trade Paperback. Very Good. 2004 Trade Paperback. 278 pp. Basis for the motion picture. "For five weeks the world waited for news about Danny Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan.... And then came the broadcast of his shocking murder. The complete account of his abduction, the intense effort to rescue him, and the aftermath are told here -- in astonishing detail, and with courage and insight -- by his surviving wife, Mariane. A Mighty Heart is the unforgettable story of two journalists who fell in love with their work -- and with each other. Together, Mariane and Danny Pearl traveled across the globe, dedicated to journalism that increases the understanding of international politics and of ethnic and religious conflict. In the end, Danny was caught in the dangerous fissure where warring cultures, politics, and ideologies collide. A Mighty Heart is both a portrait of a partnership built on the ideals of love, truth, and justice and a critical loo ... Read more
