A Vietnamese Moses: Philiphe Binh and the Geographies of Early Modern Catholicism

by George E. Dutton

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.  A Vietnamese Moses is the story of Philiphê Binh, a Vietnamese Catholic priest who in 1796 traveled from Tonkin to the Portuguese court in Lisbon to persuade its ruler to appoint a bishop for his community of ex-Jesuits.

Getting Past Coetzee

by Hedley Twidle

Ten years ago, I was commissioned by a famous poet-editor to write a profile of Coetzee for a London review. At the time, the offer was a big break, and could have led to great things. I was fresh out of university and the editor was high-up at Faber and Faber, a talent scout for The New Yorker. But it never got written.Instead of providing a controlled and judicious survey of the oeuvre, I found myself obsessed by minor details on the outskirts of his work. The grim memoir Youth (2002) had just appeared and I wrote at length about the stockings full of clotting cheese that young "John" hangs up in his kitchen - proof of his extreme thriftiness, in life as in prose. The fish fingers that he fries in olive oil in a London garret, trying to emulate the Mediterranean diet of Ford Madox Ford: ...

Bulger On Trial: Boston's Most Notorious Gangster And The Pursuit Of Justice

by David Boeri and Lisa Tobin

The trial of James Whitey Bulger this summer was supposed to bring an end to one of the greatest scandals in the history of the FBI, but it dredged up a toxic swamp instead. Horrific crimes, depraved witnesses and sordid accounts of FBI agents who gave their allegiance to the mob boss emerged from the muck as families of 19 murder victims endured the presentation of broken skulls and jaws along with photos from the morgue. At center stage was the defendant, who had been listed and protected by the FBI as a secret informant. He claimed the government had given him a free pass, but prosecutors fought to keep the trial away from questions of who made Bulger what he became and how. In an extraordinary measure of their outrage, the families of the victims cheered Bulgers own attorneys as the...

If you want to learn about one of history's greatest military commanders and uncover some of his secrets of drive--drive that enabled him and his small army to first subdue all of Greece and then the mighty Persian Empire--then you want to read this book.Some people like to think that geniuses are so inherently extraordinary that they navigate their journeys with clairvoyant ease. This simply isn't true. Greatness does not come lightly. It requires that you make sacrifices of time, interests, and--sometimes--possessions. The further you move toward greatness, the more greatness demands from you.But all barriers yield to one mythical quality: drive. The will to persist and overcome. To never give up. To never accept defeat. Few stories better illustrate this better than th...

The Story: Of the Greatest Person that Ever Lived

Kindergarten is in session and the name-less protagonist is assigned to begin a private journal as a class project. After the school year is over, out of habit, the journal entries continue until years later when the main character begins to seriously question why they had continued to write long after the assignment had ended. Was it ever a real decision or were they just mindlessly following what they were to do all these year? Why do we even have this need to follow and seek guidance from a higher authority anyway? Who better to answer these questions than the person living the life in question. It's time to stop believing things out of habit and for the sake of belief itself and time to start seeking the uncomfortable but honest answers about the reality of life. Throughout the next 5 ...
