A Greek Island Cosmos: Kinship and Community in Meganisi

Posted by admin on November 19, 2011

Meganisi is one of the smallest and most remote of the Greek Ionian islands. From another point of view, it is the centre of the world, and its sailors travel literally from China to Peru while its migrants maintain familial connections from Johannesburg to Montreal.

This volume reveals the historical dynamism of what appears at first sight to be a forgotten backwater. The villages of Meganisi are also, however, tightly-knit communities, and this detailed ethnographic study explores the basis on which the islanders' solidarity and sense of identity are constructed and reconstructed despite population mobility and economic change; the values, sentiments and structures of kinship and family.

Kenana- Kingdom of Green Gold

Kenana- Kingdom of green gold

Both authors have been intimately involved with the Kenana Sugar Farm project for many years. Osman el-Nazir, the company's Managing Director since 1981, first joined the project as a representative of the Sudan government in 1973. The same year Govind Desai was seconded from Lonrho's Zambia operations. From 1981 to 1994 he was the company's Financial Controller.

The extraordinary story of the Kanana project (see African Business May, 2001) began from a concept of Sudan's then president, Gafaar Mohamed Nimeiri. His dream was to reverse desertification, green the desert, and provide a 'bread basket' for the region.

Sudan- The Bradt Travel Guide

Posted by admin on November 19, 2011

Sudan- The Bradt Travel Guide
Available in English only

Publisher Comments:

While the crisis in the western region is devastating, the end to civil war in the south has inspired a spirit of optimism in Sudan.

 

This is a land of delightful contrast, boasting desert caravans, lush river valleys and more pyramids than Egypt itself. It offers the intrepid visitor a fulfilling cultural experience in one of Africa's most hospitable countries.

Paul Clammer shows in this, the first comprehensive guide to Sudan, that beyond troubled Darfur lies an extraordinary country, and a culture of kindness to strangers.

Men are From Mars Women are from Venus

Posted by admin on November 5, 2011


Available in Store

Imagine that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. One day long ago the Martians, looking through their telescopes, discovered the Venusians. Just glimpsing the Venusians awakened feelings they had never known. They fell in love and quickly invented space travel and flew to Venus. 

The Venusians welcomed the Martians with open arms. They had intuitively known that this day would come. Their hearts opened wide to a love they had never felt before.
The love between the Venusians and Martians was magical. They delighted in being together, doing things together, and sharing together. Though from different worlds, they reveled in their differences. They spent months learning about each other, exploring and appreciating their different needs, preferences, and behavior patterns. For years they lived together in love and harmony.

“Nothing on this planet can compare with a woman’s love—it is kind and compassionate, patient and nurturing, generous and sweet and unconditional. Pure. If you are her man, she will walk on water and through a mountain for you, too, no matter how you’ve acted out, no matter what crazy thing you’ve done, no matter the time or demand. If you are her man, she will talk to you until there just aren’t any more words left to say, encourage you when you’re at rock bottom and think there just isn’t any way out, hold you in her arms when you’re sick, and laugh with you when you’re up. And if you’re her man and that woman loves you—I mean really loves you?—she will shine you up when you’re dusty, encourage you when you’re down, defend you even when she’s not so sure you were right, and hang on your every word, even when you’re not saying anything worth listening to. And no matter what you do, no matter how many times her friends say you’re no good, no matter how many times you slam the door on the relationship, she will give you her very best and then some, and keep right on trying to win over your heart, even when you act like everything she’s done to convince you she’s The One just isn’t good enough. 
That’s a woman’s love—it stands the test of time, logic, and all circumstance. ” 
― Steve Harvey, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment
