Fire under the Ashes - John Donoghue Summary

In Fire under the Ashes, John Donoghue recovers the lasting significance of the radical ideas of the English Revolution, exploring their wider Atlantic history through a case study of Coleman Street Ward, London. Located in the crowded center of seventeenth-century London, Coleman Street Ward was a hotbed of political, social, and religious unrest. There among diverse and contentious groups of puritans a tumultuous republican underground evolved as the political means to a more perfect Protestant Reformation. But while Coleman Street has long been recognized as a crucial location of the English Revolution, its importance to events across the Atlantic has yet to be explored. Prominent merchant revolutionaries from Coleman Street led England’s imperial expansion by investing deeply in the slave trade and projects of colonial conquest. Opposing them were other Coleman Street puritans, who having crossed and re-crossed the ocean as colonists and revolutionaries, circulated new ideas about the liberty of body and soul that they defined against England’s emergent, political economy of empire. These transatlantic radicals promoted social justice as the cornerstone of a republican liberty opposed to both political tyranny and economic slavery—and their efforts, Donoghue argues, provided the ideological foundations for the abolitionist movement that swept the Atlantic more than a century later.

Under the Ashes of the Stormy War - Alauldeen Al-Mudarres Summary

``Today, Monday, April14, 2003, is the day in which I preferred to start writing and recording certain painful memories about the days of the American aggression and its destructive war against my country, Iraq. The Americans came under an illegal, unethical and uncultural pretext: freedom and democracy; and disarming the Iraqi regime of the massdestructive weapons. That autocratic regime led by Saddam and his party for more than 30 years has led the country to its present condition. It had no pluralism, no institutions and no constitution. However, such a condition does not give a reason or a legitimate cover for the invasion and destruction which we witnessed during the past three weeks.``

Fire Beneath the Ashes - Dr. Hooshang Guilak Summary

The author painstakingly analyses the relation of the two countries. He illustrates the great achievement of those Americans who came to Iran without any government affi liation. They accomplished their goal with self sacrifi ces and devotion. Many of them gave their lives for what they believed, thus creating tremendous respect for the Americans. Vis--vis to the individuals, he points out the failure of the United States government almost, in every respect. He exemplifi es the shortcomings of most of the American representatives in Iran. He demonstrates that the majority of them were totally unaware of the culture and the way of life in Iran, making them severely handicapped. He points out to the utmost reliance placed by the American administration to the British opinions and guidance which they followed blindly, causing irreparable damage to the integrity of the United States, not only in Iran but in the whole Middle East.

From Beneath the Ashes - Brian S. Marro Summary

During times of disaster there are often other atrocities that slip through the cracks, unnoticed. On September 11th, 2001, a most cowardly and callous act was perpetrated on not only the United States but the entire free world. During this day thousands of innocent people lost their lives simply because they chose to live in a free society. We all know the story. What we don't know are the many stories within the story, stories and secrets that were forever lost when the Twin Towers crumpled to the ground on West Street in downtown New York City. These stories were buried with all those who carried their tales. There is one secret, one story, that did not perish that day. A story of greed and deceit, one that was superceded only by the terrorist acts themselves. From Beneath the Ashes is the first book to reveal the possibility of a "conspiracy theory" regarding the events of September 11th. While we lost thousands of lives and millions grieved, author Brian S. Marro suggests how some used this massive tragedy as a stepping stone to financial success in their heartless personal agendas.

Finding God Beneath the Ashes - Chuck Wright Summary

"Finding God Beneath The Ashes" is unique in style. Each chapter has a section of Bible verses in a poetic form, with occasional comments to encourage or explain, placed like stepping stones across a flowing mountain stream. A foundation for the book is laid by presenting quotes from the Founding Fathers, their acknowledging their need of God in giving birth to our nation. When all seemed lost, they called upon God! In our nation's first stepping stones they wrote the words, "We are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights!" This book is to help you to recover that God! In the dangers of our present time, in the aftermath of the ashes of 9/11, where and how are we to find God? It is written with the purpose of helping you to discover God by pondering Biblical themes and comments as helps to you along the way. The verses were collected much the way you would gather brightly colored leaves on a Fall day, freely picking and choosing leaves of different shapes, colors and sizes. The collection then is gathered into clusters about God to speak to your mind and heart. This Book is not intended to be a quick read. It's like a walk in the woods. It's sitting on a ledge, looking across a great canyon. In places, it is a trip down the rapids. It's a place where you can argue with God about what is written, a place to share your sorrow or loss, where you can cry out, "why?" It is a place where you can find quiet pastures along a gently flowing stream, or safety through the valleys of the shadows of death. It's designed to help you find the peace of God. This book begins with the silence of God before time or space through His mighty words and deeds in history. From beginning to end it covers the major themes: God in the chaos of the beginning, His giving of safe boundaries for living, the strong things God stands for like love and justice. The book introduces you to the names of God which will show you what He is really like, what we are to call Him His name introduces Him to us and the wonder of who He is. We come to Jesus as our Friend. Like the fireman at 9/11 He gave His life in the smoke and ashes to save us. In Jesus we see God come down to earth. The ending of the book gives lines from the poetry of The Psalms with indicated places to pause and be alone with God and with your own thoughts without comments by the writer. What else can you expect from within these pages? You can expect explanations on how the Bible is put together, illustrations and examples from the lives of people who are living their faith with others, how to live out the model of Jesus through friendship with others. The Book can be used over and over again, a chapter at a time a section now and then. It can be used with others in groups or with just two or three together. It's a book designed for you, a place to find God in the dangers, brokenness, in the joys and in the ashes of living."

Out of the Ashes - Koen Feyter,Marc Bossuyt,Stephan Parmentier,Paul Lemmens Summary

Over the last decade, the issue of reparation for victims of gross and systematic human rights violations has given rise to intense debates at the national and the international level. Discussions particularly arise in post-conflict situations characterised by serious violations of human rights, such as genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and other forms of injustice of the past. Crucial questions include: what harm inflicted to victims warrants reparation? when and how to repair the harm? who is eligible for reparation and who has the duty to repair? These and other questions raise many challenging issues for theory and practice. This volume contains the contributions presented at an international conference in Brussels, in February 2005, on the right to reparation for victims of serious human rights violations. It also includes the final report of a research project undertaken jointly at the Universities of Antwerp (UA) and Leuven (K.U.Leuven) between 2000 and 2004 on the right to reparation in international law for victims of gross and systematic human rights violations, both from a legal and a socio-political perspective. The present volume is aimed at academics, policy-makers, national and international courts and tribunals, the legal professions, and civil society at large.

Out of the Ashes - Annemarie Reuter Schomaker Summary

Seen through the eyes of a child, the lives of real people in a world gone mad, gives this book its character. Where else can you experience the days and nights of innocent children caught in a nightmare, considering life in wartime as “normal”. Picture mothers separated from their children in the name of safety, thereby putting these children into other, unforeseen dangers. Imagine a group of school children, considered wards of the state and therefore under the full protection of the Hitler government, fleeing from the advancing Russian army in sub-zero degree weather. See them walking for days, with backpacks, and finally hitching a ride on open freight cars of a military train. Consider that seeing a Russian propaganda movie in East Berlin was preferable over watching an American flick in the West, just because the theater in the East was heated. Ride on top of freight cars into the countryside, searching for food, trading family treasures for a sack of potatoes. Join West Berliners in their stand against communism despite cold and hunger. From cover to cover these stories will amaze you. Written with a sense of humor, this book will capture your attention and keep you riveted.

Out of the Ashes - Skip Allen Summary

The September 11 terrorist attacks are nearly a five-year-old memory. Though the United States has never felt more secure, al Qaida is getting ready to prove otherwise. Instead of commercial airliners, now al Qaida plans to use a biological weapon of mass destruction they call the "Phoenix." Instead of fanatical Muslim terrorists, they've recruited three young American men to commit acts of bioterrorism without suspicion. Instead of targets like New York City and the Pentagon, they plan to strike America's Heartland, unleashing the Phoenix on three unsuspecting cities while the nation celebrates its independence. The government's ultra-secret Phoenix Task Force races against the clock to decode al Qaida's encrypted communications network and expose the Phoenix operation. The President orders task force agents army officer Matt Garret and government scientist Annie Stewart to work undercover for the head al Qaida Phoenix operative in the Costa Rican tropics. With only seven days before the attack, Matt and Annie become entangled in a web of love and terrorist intrigue, putting their lives at risk to unlock the secrets of the Phoenix and to stop al Qaida's diabolical plot before the Phoenix can rise Out of the Ashes.

Up From the Ashes - William Landon Summary

Each of us goes through life on a search for the truth. We may do this ether consciously or subconsciously but the journey is a part of our living. Please understand that this is not some theoretical exercise. The search for truth is vital for us to make correct decisions in all aspects of our life. As such, this is one of the most important understandings we can come to as human beings. The search for truth is actually the search for reality and the nature of reality. Thus, this is an important part of meaningful living. How successful we are going to be in living is heavily reliant on how clearly and correctly we understand the true nature of reality. It is for this reason that this is no mere philosophical exercise. This book is an exploration of the Bible’s view of reality. Contrary to popular opinion there is only one ultimate truth. We need to reject the misconception that reality is subjective. This is the error Pontus Pilate expressed to Christ (John 18:38) and that the Athenian Greeks proposed to the apostle Paul (Acts 17:19–21). Yet, the true nature of life is that there is only one real truth. Given the impact our understanding of truth has on our life here and now as well as in eternity, there is no more important pursuit a person can undertake. This book puts forth the view of truth that is based on the teachings of the Bible.

Skull in the Ashes - Peter Kaufman Summary

On a February night in 1897, the general store in Walford, Iowa, burned down. The next morning, townspeople discovered a charred corpse in the ashes. Everyone knew that the store’s owner, Frank Novak, had been sleeping in the store as a safeguard against burglars. Now all that remained were a few of his personal items scattered under the body. At first, it seemed to be a tragic accident mitigated just a bit by Novak’s foresight in buying generous life insurance policies to provide for his family. But soon an investigation by the ambitious new county attorney, M. J. Tobin, turned up evidence suggesting that the dead man might actually be Edward Murray, a hard-drinking local laborer. Relying upon newly developed forensic techniques, Tobin gradually built a case implicating Novak in Murray’s murder. But all he had was circumstantial evidence, and up to that time few murder convictions had been won on that basis in the United States. Others besides Tobin were interested in the case, including several companies that had sold Novak life insurance policies. One agency hired detectives to track down every clue regarding the suspect’s whereabouts. Newspapers across the country ran sensational headlines with melodramatic coverage of the manhunt. Veteran detective Red Perrin’s determined trek over icy mountain paths and dangerous river rapids to the raw Yukon Territory town of Dawson City, which was booming with prospectors as the Klondike gold rush began, made for especially good copy. Skull in the Ashes traces the actions of Novak, Tobin, and Perrin, showing how the Walford fire played a pivotal role in each man’s life. Along the way, author Peter Kaufman gives readers a fascinating glimpse into forensics, detective work, trial strategies, and prison life at the close of the nineteenth century. As much as it is a chilling tale of a cold-blooded murder and its aftermath, this is also the story of three ambitious young men and their struggle to succeed in a rapidly modernizing world.
