📒Restless Wave ✍ Ayako Ishigaki
✏Restless Wave Book Summary : With the publication of Restless Wave in 1940, pioneering feminist, journalist, and activist Ayako Ishigaki made history. One of the first English-language books by a Japanese woman, this rediscovered classic introduces new generations to a writer of great talent, integrity, and courage. Originally published under the pen name Haru Matsui to protect her family against government reprisal on both sides of the Pacific, Ishigaki's memoir offers a rare glimpse into the lives of Japanese/Americans, particularly women, between the first two world wars. In exquisite prose, she brilliantly locates her struggle for independence -- as a woman and a person of conscience -- on the map of injustice and resistance. Vivid scenes from a traditional Japanese girlhood at the turn of the century trace her gradual political awakening, one that would force her to flee an increasingly militaristic Japan for the United States, and then inspire her to rise up against injustice there as well.

📒The Restless Wave ✍ John McCain
✏The Restless Wave Book Summary : #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “History matters to McCain, and for him America is and was about its promise. The book is his farewell address, a mixture of the personal and the political. ‘I have loved my life,’ he writes. ‘All of it.’ The Restless Wave is a fitting valedictory for a man who seldom backed down.” —The Guardian (US) “A book-length meditation on what it means to face the hard challenges of long life and the sobering likelihood of imminent death…A reflection on hardship, a homily on purpose, a celebration of life — and a challenge to Americans to live up to their values and founding principles at a time when both are in jeopardy.” —The Boston Globe In this candid political memoir from Senator John McCain, an American hero reflects on his life and what matters most. “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here. Maybe I’ll have another five years…Maybe I’ll be gone before you read this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable. But I’m prepared for either contingency, or at least I’m getting prepared. I have some things I’d like to take care of first, some work that needs finishing, and some people I need to see. And I want to talk to my fellow Americans a little more if I may.” So writes John McCain in this inspiring, moving, frank, and deeply personal memoir. Written while confronting a mortal illness, McCain looks back with appreciation on his years in the Senate, his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency against Barack Obama, and his crusades on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Always the fighter, McCain attacks the spurious nationalism and political polarization afflicting American policy. He makes an impassioned case for democratic internationalism and bi-partisanship. He recalls his disagreements with several presidents, and minces no words in his objections to some of President Trump's statements and policies. At the same time, he tells stories of his most satisfying moments of public service and offers a positive vision of America that looks beyond the Trump presidency. The Restless Wave is John McCain at his best.
📒The Restless Wave ✍ Helen Bellany
✏The Restless Wave Book Summary : Helen Bellany, twice married to the artist John Bellany, recalls their lives together in Scotland, London, and Italy, John’s rise from rebellious art student to internationally recognised artist, and the human cost inherent in creating great art. Inspired by the sea and the fishing community he was born into, John began his lifelong visionary journey exploring the human condition. From there, he deepened into a profound exploration of the human condition. The Restless Wave reflects the mystery, poetry and passion that were at the core of the inner life John and Helen shared. The couple had great friendships with such fellow artists as David Bowie, and John painted such internationally known figures as Billy Connelly, Sean Connery and Peter Maxwell Davis, as well as many portraits of his muse, Helen.
📒Beneath The Restless Wave ✍ Edward Couzens-Lake
✏Beneath the Restless Wave Book Summary : Tony Beasley joined the Royal Navy as a teenager in 1946. This biography recalls the adventures he had during his time in the Navy, from training and specialization as a telegraphist to being unexpectedly sent to work on submarines. He describes what it was like to work on a submarine during the Cold War, and describes the patrols and missions he was involved in, in particular when the submarine he was serving on was sent to the Barents Sea to undertake covert operations, namely to spy on the Soviet Fleet. Before this mission the crew of the submarine was advised that if anything went wrong it 'never happened.' Needless to say it did go wrong. Tony emerged a hero, but a hero who wasn't allowed to tell anyone where he had been or what he had done. Now in his eighties, Tony finally gets to tell his story.
