International bestseller and master storyteller Jeffrey Archer returns with a tale of fate and fortune, redemption and revenge with A Prisoner of Birth. Danny Cartwright and Spencer Craig never should have met. One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his fianceé up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister posed to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to twenty-two years in prison, thanks to irrefutable testimony from Spencer, the prosecution's main witness. Danny spends the next few years in a high-security prison while Spencer Craig's career as a lawyer goes straight up. All the while Danny plans to escape and wreak his revenge. Thus begins Jeffrey Archer's poignant novel of deception, hatred and vengeance, in which only one of them can finally triumph while the other will spend the rest of his days in jail. But which one will triumph? This suspenseful novel takes the listener through so many twists and turns that no one will guess the ending, even the most ardent of Archer's many, many fans.

According to George Jackson, black men born in the US are conditioned to accept the inevitability of being imprisoned.... "Being born a slave in a captive society and never experiencing any objective basis for expectation had the effect of preparing me for the progressively traumatic misfortune that led so many black men to the prison gate. I was prepared for prison. It required only minor psychic adjustments." As Jackson writes from his prison cell, his statement may seem to be only a product of his current status. However, history proves his point. Indeed, some of the most well-known and respected black men have served time in jail or prison. Among them are Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, and Frederick Douglass. This book is an examination of the various forms that imprisonment, as asocial, historical, and political experience of African Americans, has taken. Confinement describes the status of individuals who are placed within boundaries-either seen or unseen-but always felt. A word that suggests extensive implications, confinement describes the status of persons who are imprisoned and who are unjustly relegated to a social status that is hostile, rendering them powerless and subject to the rules of the authorities. Arguably, confinement appropriately describes the status of African Americans who have endured spaces of confinement, which include, but are not limited to plantations, Jim Crow societies, and prisons. At specific times, these "spaces of confinement" have been used to oppress African Americans socially, politically, and spiritually. Contributors examine the related experiences of Malcolm X, Bigger Thomas of Native Son, and Angela Davis.

How do the 60,000 people incarcerated in France experience their sexuality? If it seems unthinkable today not to care for and feed prisoners, it will no doubt seem incomprehensible that the prison of the 21st century has not been able to integrate respect for the right to intimacy as an essential element of human dignity. The deprivation and control of sexual relations in prison represents an additional punishment for prisoners and their families, who feel the injustice of it all. An ambitious study was needed to go beyond stereotypes, particularly when it comes to prostitution, rape and homosexuality within prison walls. In prison, it's hard to avoid regression to a solitary, pornographic sexuality. Marital sexuality is furtive and humiliating, stolen from the gaze of prison guards. A general situation that runs counter to the State's stated ambitions in terms of rehabilitation and the fight against recidivism. This groundbreaking sociological document is also a fascinating human investigation. Sixty men and women detained in France were interviewed on a regular basis. Testimonies were gathered from several foreign countries. The author was also able to interview prison and medical-social staff. He then questions the nature and use of confinement, putting it into perspective with a justice system that is all too often misunderstood. Arnaud Gaillard is Secretary General of the Human Rights Alert and Intervention Network (RAIDH). He is a lawyer and has a doctorate in sociology. He is the author of a thesis on sexuality in prison, defended at the Sorbonne in 2008. At the end of 2009, he coordinated the 4th World Congress against the Death Penalty.

The great Canadian literary critic and humanist Northrop Frye taught at Victoria College, University of Toronto, for fifty-three years. Remembering Northrop Frye (2011) brought together letters from eighty-nine of Frye’s students and friends in which they recorded their recollections of him as a teacher during the 1940s and 1950s. However, these students provided very few accounts of what Frye actually said in the classroom. Outside of the video recordings of Frye’s course in the English Bible, this book, a transcription of fifteen sets of notes taken by Northrop Frye’s students in the late 1940s and early 1950s, is the only available extended record of the content of Frye’s courses. For all those who wish that they could have sat in one or more of Frye’s classes, the present collection of notes will at least partially fulfill that wish. One can now attend, as it were, fifteen of Frye’s classes without having to pay tuition.

The work " The Allegory of the Cave," also known as the Cave Allegory or Cave Parable, is an extremely intelligent allegory with a philosophical and pedagogical intent, written by the Greek philosopher Plato.

It is a timeless text whose message fits perfectly into contemporary times when sectarian ideologies still permeate many societies.
