✏Memories of State Book Summary : “Eric Davis eschews traditional histories of Iraq that have tended to emphasize political personalities and struggles amongst them, and focuses instead on the relationships between culture and political control, civil society and state institutions, and intellectuals and policy makers. The result is an innovative and multi-layered analysis that is a pleasure to read.”—Adeed Dawish, author or Arab Nationalism in the Twentieth Century: From Triumph to Despair "Eric Davis's book is a truly impressive tour de force of the cultural history of modern Iraq and the political struggles over the appropriation of national culture and memory. It is based not only on meticulous and detailed research, but also a thorough familiarity and sympathy with Iraqi society. Davis offers a particularly valuable cultural and intellectual history of modern Iraq, a country that has appeared in Western public discourse primarily in terms of its geo-political aspects and the bloody regime which ruled it until recent times."—Sami Zubaida, author of Law and Power in the Islamic World

✏Memories and Commentaries Book Summary : For the first time in one volume--the celebrated Stravinsky and Craft Conversations Few would dispute that Igor Stravinsky was the greatest composer of the twentieth century. Conductor and writer Robert Craft was his closest colleague and friend, and for over twenty-one years he lived with the Stravinskys in their Hollywood home. In the early 1950s he accompanied the composer on his concert tours, and from the mid-1950s to Stravinsky's death in 1971 he co-conducted his concerts. Together Stravinsky and Craft published five acclaimed collections known as the Conversations series, which sprung from informal talks between the two men. In this newly edited and re-structured one-volume version, Craft brings Stravinsky's reflections on his childhood, his family life, professional associates, and personal relationships into sharper focus and places the major compositions in their cultural milieux. The Conversations books are the only published writing attributed to Stravinsky that are actually "by him" in terms of fidelity to his thoughts and opinions, making this volume required reading for all fans and students of Stravinsky's music.

✏Memories Book Summary : Beside an account of one growing up in The Great Depression and The Big War, Les Niemi's story is a spiritual autobiography, including his calling to become a Christian pastor to a unique audience in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This dual ministry to parish and higher education began with a Finnish immigrant population. The memoir is enlivened by stories, many humorous, and an abundance of photographs. Readers of faith will be eager to relate to it, as it may also be their story. Niemi loved the sauna so much that the final church which he served on the shores of the southernmost tip of Lake Superior, also had a sauna, possibly the only such church in the country. These memoirs are real page-turners that you might enjoy. They might help to totally change your life. Les E. Niemi is an ordained Lutheran pastor. For forty years he served three parishes in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and helped save the only college in America founded by Finnish immigrants, Suomi College (now Finlandia University). Growing up in the geographical bull's-eye of the peninsula during The Great Depression and World War Two, he was a graduate of Suomi College and Suomi Theological Lutheran Seminary of Hancock. Following a sense of God's call on his life, his bilingual ministry in the north country encompassed the communities of Munising, Newberry, Ishpeming, Republic, Champion, Michigamme, Trout Creek, Ewen, Bruce Crossing and Paynesville. He and his wife Marcia live in Au Train, Michigan, and Lake Havasu City, Arizona and are the parents of five grown children. Memories....of Les Niemi is his spiritual autobiography, and his only published book. This is how it was.
