Takeo Nakano immigrated to Canada from Japan in 1920, later marrying and starting a family in his adopted homeland. Takeo's passion was poetry, and he cultivated the exquisite form known as tanka. Then came the Second World War. Takeo Nakano was one of thousands of Japanese men forcibly separated from his family in 1942 and interned in labour camps in the British Columbia interior. Takeo was one of those who protested the forced labour in the camps and the separation from his family. His punishment was to be sent even further away, to an isolated internment camp in northern Ontario. This book, first published in 1982, is a rare first-person account of the experience of internment. This new edition includes a foreword by his daughter, Leatrice M. Willson Chan, with whom he collaborated in preparing his memoir.

This is a perfectly straightforward and true story, of an ordinary young German. Not particularly concerned about, nor interested in politics, but subscribing to the currently held idealised image of the Führer, he was called upon to fight for his country, for the Third Reich, and willingly did so.
The story of a young English migrant, Bluey, and three similarly ill-prepared friends, who arrive in Australia in 1910 and struggle to adapt and send down roots in the rough but astonishingly vibrant and colorful Australian outback of the time.
In the autumn of 1961, nine young men - rowers of Vilnius Zalgiris athletic association - became USSR rowing champions and were invited to the USSR national team. Though they had very important international competitions ahead of them, they were hounded at every turn by the echoes of the postwar years. Their parents' or loved ones' political opinions, their collaboration with partisans, and their relationships with the military of an independent Lithuania were all reasons for the KGB to restrict them from traveling abroad or to remove them from the team. They were replaced by athletes from other republics. Cast overboard, the young men formed new crews, prepared for competitions, and rowed in regattas held within the USSR. However, they still felt like second-class citizens, experiencing colder relations with their former crewmates as they achieve victories in international competitions. All the while, they were also burdened by the painful memories and losses from their childhoods. In 1963 and, thanks to the rowers' perseverance, determination, and fortunate coincidences, the KGB removed their restrictions on international travel. They placed at their first international competitions - the European Championship in Copenhagen. During their journeys abroad, they were closely followed by security officers and by Soviet propaganda. As hostages of the USSR athletic system, the Lithuanians were forced to participate in countless selection competitions, but they eventually won the right to participate in the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Barbed wire is made of two strands of galvanized steel wire twisted together for strength and to hold sharp barbs in place. As creative advertisers sought ways to make an inherently dangerous product attractive to customers concerned about the welfare of their livestock, and as barbed wire became commonplace on battlefields and in concentration camps, the fence accrued a fascinating and troubling range of meanings beyond the material facts of its construction. In The Perfect Fence, Lyn Ellen Bennett and Scott Abbott explore the multiple uses and meanings of barbed wire, a technological innovation that contributes to America’s shift from a pastoral ideal to an industrial one. They survey the vigorous public debate over the benign or “infernal” fence, investigate legislative attempts to ban or regulate wire fences as a result of public outcry, and demonstrate how the industry responded to ameliorate the image of its barbed product. Because of the rich metaphorical possibilities suggested by a fence that controls through pain, barbed wire developed into an important motif in works of literature from the late nineteenth century to the present day. Early advertisements proclaimed that barbed wire was “the perfect fence,” keeping “the ins from being outs, and the outs from being ins.” Bennett and Abbott conclude that while barbed wire is not the perfect fence touted by manufacturers, it is indeed a meaningful thing that continues to influence American identities.
In this book, Alan Krell investigates the place barbed wire holds in the social imagination.
THE BARBED WIRE FENCE is not just some book containing more run of the mill input, concerning how one woman's confusing upbringing impacted her entire life, in the sexual realm. Besides being surprisingly honest, it is also a book which I composed while bearing in mind the necessity to keep the finger aimed at me. For probably nobody, myself included, would benefit from perceivably self-righteous judgments. Yes, my story politely elaborates on my history as a lesbian and yes, it also depicts how certain occurrences played a role in my decision to act out that way. However, as each reader engagingly discovers, for my wide range of human experiences, the buck doesn't just stop there. The candid details concerning embarrassments which knocked me off the fence as one who remained carnal minded, while claiming absolute deliverance through Jesus Christ, may also seem tearfully funny. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Tina was raised in the little town of Tucker. She is the ninth of ten children born to a hard working black woman who, in spite of having never made more than sixty five dollars a week as a maid, raised her children securely and with integrity. In 1965, this author was one of the first forty black children to attend the newly desegregated Tucker school system. However, though she became a mother at the age of seventeen, she went on to earn her high school diploma and then the clerical training which ultimately enabled her to write this book. Around 1997, this devout Christian also started doing interviews with gay people concerning their views on religion and such. It was then that she realized the need for this group of people to be more often ministered to by those who can trulyconnect with them.
"Some of the world's first refugee camps and concentration camps appeared in the British Empire in the late 19th century. Famine camps detained emaciated refugees and billeted relief applicants on public works projects; plague camps segregated populations suspected of harboring disease and accommodated those evacuated from unsanitary locales; concentration camps during the Anglo-Boer War, meanwhile, adapted a technology of colonial welfare in the context of war. Wartime camps in South Africa were simultaneously instruments of military violence and humanitarian care. While providing food and shelter to destitute refugees and disciplining and reforming a population cast as uncivilized and unhygienic, British officials in South Africa applied a developing set of imperial attitudes and approaches that also governed the development of plague and famine camps in India. More than the outcomes of military counterinsurgency, Boer War camps were registers of cultural discourses about civilization, class, gender, racial purity and sanitary pollution. Although British spokesmen regarded camps as hygienic enclaves, epidemic diseases decimated inmate populations creating a damaging political scandal. In order to curb mortality and introduce order, the British government mobilized a wide variety of disciplinary and sanitary lessons assembled at Indian plague and famine camps and at other kindred institutions like metropolitan workhouses. Authorities imported officials from India with experience managing plague and famine camps to systematize and rationalize South Africa's wartime concentration camps. Ultimately, improvements to inmates' health and well-being served to legitimize camps as technologies of liberal empire and biopolitical security"--Provided by publisher.
