📒Voices Beyond The Border ✍ L Robinson and V Cox
✏Voices Beyond the Border Book Summary : DescriptionIn the UK today approximately 1.6 million people awoke to the same problem (that's if they'd managed to sleep) - how to survive another day alongside the torrid and turbulent emotions associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Although you'd struggle to find a room big enough to house them all at once, it's not a 'popular' mental health problem and has received little publicity. The fact that you've heard of it at all probably means you have it or somebody close at hand does. In the immense isolating pain and confusion that BPD can bring with it, this book is here to remind you that you are not alone - there are at least 1,599,999 others who feel their own personal version of your suffering. This unique anthology brings you some of their voices.The included poetry and prose features not only pieces by people with BPD, but also the viewpoint of carers and treatment providers. This book won't teach you the facts and figures about BPD or the latest theories as to what causes or treats it, but it will provide the aspect of BPD that is almost always missed - how it feels. About the AuthorsThe authors who have contributed to this work have one thing in common - they all have a lived experience of BPD. Whether they are struggling with the day to day challenges of how to manage the rollercoaster of emotions and behaviours for themselves, or looking on as a loving carer or concerned professional, BPD permeates their daily existence. Yet despite this, there are moments for reflection, insight, and beauty - where they can find the time, the space and the words to convey their experience to others who will recognise it all too well and to those who may be struggling to understand what is happening in the internal worlds of those they care about. The authors are of all ages, from all walks of life, and all professions. BPD has no regard for boundaries of age, gender or social status. Here are the words of your lovers, your sons, daughters...

📒Voices Beyond Bondage ✍ Erika DeSimone
✏Voices Beyond Bondage Book Summary : Slaves in chains, toiling on master’s plantation. Beatings, bloodied whips. This is what many of us envision when we think of 19th century African Americans; source materials penned by those who suffered in bondage validate this picture. Yet slavery was not the only identity of 19th century African Americans. Whether they were freeborn, self-liberated, or born in the years after the Emancipation, African Americans had a rich cultural heritage all their own, a heritage largely subsumed in popular history and collective memory by the atrocity of slavery. The early 19th century birthed the nation’s first black-owned periodicals, the first media spaces to provide primary outlets for the empowerment of African American voices. For many, poetry became this empowerment. Almost every black-owned periodical featured an open call for poetry, and African Americans, both free and enslaved, responded by submitting droves of poems for publication. Yet until now, these poems -- and an entire literary movement -- have been lost to modern readers. The poems in Voices Beyond Bondage address the horrific and the mundane, the humorous and the ordinary and the extraordinary. Authors wrote about slavery, but also about love, morality, politics, perseverance, nature, and God. These poems evidence authors who were passionate, dedicated, vocal, and above all resolute in a bravery which was both weapon and shield against a world of prejudice and inequity. These authors wrote to be heard; more than 150 years later it is at last time for us to listen.

📒Voices From The Shifting Russo Japanese Border ✍ Svetlana Paichadze
✏Voices from the Shifting Russo Japanese Border Book Summary : In the nineteenth century, as the Russian empire expanded eastwards and the Japanese empire expanded onto the Asian continent, the Russo-Japanese border became contested on and around the island of Sakhalin, its Russian name, or Karafuto, as it is known in Japanese. Then in the wake of the Second World War, Russia seized control of the island and the Japanese inhabitants were deported. Sakhalin’s history as a border zone makes it a lynchpin of Russo-Japanese relations, and as such it is a rich case study for exploring the key themes of this book: life in the borderlands, migration, repatriation, historical memory, multiculturalism and identity. With a focus on cross-border dialogue, Voices from the Shifting Russo-Japanese Border reveals the lives of the ordinary people in the border regions between Russia and Japan, and how they and their communities have been affected by shifts in the Russo-Japanese border over the past century-and-a-half. Examining the lives and experiences of repatriates from Karafuto/Sakhalin in contemporary Hokkaido and their contribution to the multicultural society of Japan’s northernmost island, the chapters cover the border shifts in Karafuto/Sakhalin up until 1945, the immediate aftermath the Second World War, the commemorative practices and memories of those in both Japan and Eastern Russia, and, finally, postwar lives by drawing extensively on interviews with people in the communities affected most by the shifting border. This interdisciplinary book will be of huge interest to students and scholars across a broad range of subjects including Russo-Japanese relations, Northeast Asian history, border studies, migration studies, and the Second World War.

📒Here ✍ Anthony DePalma
✏Here Book Summary : The European conquerors who created New France, New Spain,and New England, thus sowing the seeds of Canada, Mexico, and the United States,shared the old world they all came from. Yet starting at roughly the same timein broadly the same place the three countries that grew up on the North Americancontinent created their own very different versions of a new world. For half amillennium, these three universes existed side by side, sometimes warring witheach other, often times at peace, yet separated by boundaries and prejudices farstronger than any customs stations or border posts could ever be. Then, almostexactly 500 years after Columbus stumbled into the new world, the harsh realityof a rapidly changing economic order, combined with the ineluctable tug of ourown past, began to profoundly transform the relationship among the threeAmerican nations. As a New York Times correspondent in Mexico and Canadaduring the last turbulent decade--the first ever to report from both ends ofAmerica--Anthony DePalma had a unique perspective from which to observe and todefine the momentous dawning of this uncertain new season in American history.In HERE: A Biography of the New American Continent he combinesvivid, incisive reporting on intracontinental politics from the start of theNorth American Free Trade Agreement in 1993 through the dramatic triple nationalelections in 2000, with illuminating re-examinations of key historical eventsand fascinating stories of individuals to create a completely original,passionately rendered portrait of the new world in the new millennium. How didour three nations--ll nations of immigrants, sharing borders and intertwinedhistories--develop such different world views and senses of ourselves? How dowe--accurately and inaccurately--interpret our shared history, and perceiveeach other? Who are we now, separately and as a continent, and where are wegoing? Why is it that most Americans still tend to view the United States as anisland, and rarely consider that what happens there, means anything Here? DePalma considers these questions both as a journalist andthrough the lens of his own immigrant family's experiences. "Thisbook," he says, "represents one American's journey across NorthAmerica, one American's pursuit of a northern passage connecting our past witha future taking shape before our eyes. It is the chronicle of the first years ofa new American continent, a biography of a place with special meaning for all400 million Americans who live in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Thisbook is also, in a sense, a biography of a single American--the grandson ofimmigrants who sought out America, son of a longshoreman who carried a piece ofAmerica on his back, husband to an immigrant who also came to look for America,and father to children who know foreign anthems as well as their own and whosomeday will want to know which America is theirs."
