One of the most urgent issues facing the world today is how countries shape historical memory in the aftermath of calamity, making decisions that cast long shadows into the future. Combining gripping storytelling with sharp observation, Erna Paris takes us on an extraordinary journey through four continents to explore how nations reinvent themselves after cataclysmic events. She travels through the United States, with its long-buried memory of slavery; to South Africa, where the Truth and Reconciliation Commission struggles to heal the wounds left by apartheid; to Japan, France, and Germany, where the unresolved pain of Hiroshima and the Holocaust still resonate; and to the former Yugoslavia, where she exposes the cynical shaping of historical memory. Through its insightful analysis, Long Shadows compels us to question where we stand as individuals in relation to our own collective histories. Erna Paris is the winner of ten national and international writing awards, three for Long Shadows. She is the author of six critically acclaimed books of literary non-fiction, including The End of Days: A Story of Tolerance, Tyranny and the Expulsion of the Jews from Spain, which won the 1996 Canadian National Jewish Book Award for History. She lives in Toronto. Winner of the Pearson Writers' Trust Non-Fiction Award, the inaugural Shaugnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing, and the Dorothy Shoichet prize for history from the Canadian Jewish Book Awards. 'Long Shadows is magnificent. I would love to see this book taught in every history class in America.' - Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking 'Enlightening...Riveting...Paris raises questions of enormous importance.' - Kirkus 'Paris convincingly demonstrates that memory is not only selective but subject to calculated efforts to serve personal needs and national interests.' - The Christian Science Monitor 'Erna Paris gives us a rich, if p

Following the success of The Shape of Sand, shortlisted for the CWA Historical Dagger award, comes this dramatic story of love, war and intrigue. It is 1910 and the bloodstained body of an unknown woman is found in the grounds of Sir Henry Chetwynd's Shropshire estate. It is a murder that unveils dark shadows of the past, and has an unexpected impact on the lives of Sir Henry Chetwynd and his family. But it is not only the Chetwynds whose lives lie under a shadow: Hannah, living in London, has lost part of her memory after being involved in a serious accident. As she attempts to piece together the fragments of those missing years, it seems that the ongoing murder investigation in Shropshire could hold the key, and finally allow her to bring the past and present strands of her life together. Switching between the troubled South Africa in the last years of the nineteenth century and the mysterious murder in Shropshire ten years later, Marjorie Eccles' delicate narrative reveals the lies and deceptions concealed beneath the veneer of polite Edwardian society.

Where the Shadows Lie takes the reader on a journey through Tolkien's Middle-earth, following the hobbits, their companions, and the characters they encounter on their quest. Along the way, Skogemann reveals the deep symbolic layers that are the source of joy and enchantment that many find in reading The Lord of the Rings. Aragorn, with the aid of Gandalf, Legolas, and Gimli, ascends to the throne and becomes the center of a great, unified kingdom--a symbol of the collective Self. The four hobbits, representing individual ego-consciousness, are transformed by the quest and acquire the psychological tools they need to renew the Shire--the small domain enfolded in the great. Jung's theories of the collective unconscious and the archetypes provide a key to understanding the forces of fantasy that are so powerful in Tolkien's masterpiece--and thereby a key to understanding ourselves and the events of the outside world in our modern times.

Within Obsession and Lies is the sexy, action-packed first book in A Court of Gilt and Shadow Series by bestselling authors Stacy Jones and Harper Wylde. Power. Obsession. Lies. Other people dream of being special. They wouldn't, if they knew what a nightmare it is. Arawyn would give anything to be ordinary and rid herself of the power that lives inside her. Dangerous and alluring, it's caused nothing but pain and horror, making her the dark obsession of anyone who gets too close. After years of barely containing it, Arawyn thought she had control... until the night it bursts free and pulses like a beacon. As threats emerge from the shadows, each one more fixated on her than the last, she finds her life infiltrated by three mysterious men. A mafia boss, a psychopath, and a killer. Rathe, Viper, and Fear are much more than they seem. They taste of power and feel impossibly familiar. They call to her soul in a way she's never experienced and might have answers to questions she's been asking her entire life. But darkness and secrets surround them, ones covered in blood and mire. When the monsters stalking her endanger not only her power but her life, she'll have to make a decision: take a risk and let these dangerous men in, or do what she's always done-walk away and try to survive on her own. Trusting them would be a mistake. Yet, she may not have a choice. The monsters hunting her aren't human and they're out for blood. Rathe, Viper, and Fear might be her only chance of making it through this alive. There's only one problem. They aren't human either... From bestselling authors, Stacy Jones and Harper Wylde, comes a darkly seductive new series that blends romance, danger, and the supernatural into an unforgettable read.
