The Emperor: Downfall of an Autocrat
Haile Selassie, King of Kings, Elect of God, Lion of Judah, His Most Puissant Majesty and Distinguished Highness the Emperor of Ethiopia, reigned from 1930 until he was overthrown by the army in 1974. While the fighting still raged, Ryszard Kapuscinski, Poland's leading foreign correspondent, traveled to Ethiopia to seek out and interview Selassie's servants and closest associates on how the Emperor had ruled and why he fell. This "sensitive, powerful. . .history" (The New York Review of Books) is Kapuscinski's rendition of their accounts—humorous, frightening, sad, groteque—of a man living amidst nearly unimaginable pomp and luxury while his people teetered netween hunger and starvation.

Another Day of Life
In 1975, Angola was tumbling into pandemonium; everyone who could was packing crates, desperate to abandon the beleaguered colony. With his trademark bravura, Ryszard Kapuscinski went the other way, begging his was from Lisbon and comfort to Luanda—once famed as Africa's Rio de Janeiro—and chaos.Angola, a slave colony later given over to mining and plantations, was a promised land for generations of poor Portuguese. It had belonged to Portugal since before there were English-speakers in North America. After the collapse of the fascist dictatorship in Portugal in 1974, Angola was brusquely cut loose, spurring the catastrophe of a still-ongoing civil war. Kapuscinski plunged right into the middle of the drama, driving past thousands of haphazardly placed check-points, where using the wrong shibboleth was a matter of life and death; recording his imporessions of the young soldiers—from Cuba, Angola, South Africa, Portugal—fighting a nebulous war with global repercussions; and examining the peculiar brutality of a country surprised and divided by its newfound freedom.Translated from the Polish by William R. Brand and Katarzyna Mroczkowska-Brand.

Reclaiming the Center: Confronting Evangelical Accommodation in Postmodern Times

"When evangelicals confuse an improper passion for novelty witha proper pursuit of academic and pastoral relevance, the resultscan be distressing. I cannot express how grateful I am for thewell-formed wisdom with which this book points to the abiding anddecisive relevance for future route-finding of the old theologicalpaths."
-J. I. Packer, Professor, Regent College

"For those evangelicals who-like myself-are increasinglytroubled by extravagant claims made by various evangelical scholarsabout the nature of the 'postmodern' challenge, as well as byearnest calls to develop new epistemological and theologicalperspectives in response to this challenge, the writers of theseessays shed much light. This book is must-reading for everyone whowants to promote a clear-thinking evangelicalism for ourcontemporary context."
-Richard J. Mouw, President and Professor ofChristian Philosophy, Fuller Seminary

"Here is a collection of intelligent, provocative, gutsy essaysthat dare to fly into the eye of the scholarly storm overevangelical identity. Though different perspectives are presenteven here, the underlying thesis is clear and worth heeding: theeager, and sometimes uncritical, embrace of postmodernist paradigmsmay be as premature as it has proven to be unproductive for thewell-being of the evangelical church. One of the most importantbooks of the new century!"
-Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School,Samford University

"Provocative, timely, and controversial!"
-Donald G. Bloesch, Professor of TheologyEmeritus, Dubuque Theological Seminary

"Compromise and confusion stand at the center ofevangelicalism's theological crisis, and a clear-headed andconvictional analysis of the problem has been desperately needed.Thankfully, Reclaiming the Center has arrived just in time. . . .My fervent hope is that it will open evangelical eyes, humbleevangelical hearts, and awaken this generation to the peril ofaccommodationism."
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The SouthernBaptist Theological Seminary

"The authors of this well-designed volume provide a bold andwell-argued response to what is sometimes called 'postconservativeevangelicalism.' This important conversation regarding the essence,center, and boundaries of evangelicalism is here explored,interpreted, and assessed from a well-informed theological,philosophical, and historical perspective. . . . I heartily commendthis volume and trust it will find a large readership."
-David S. Dockery, President, Union University

Active Duty: Public Administration as Democratic Statesmanship (Political Life)
In Active Duty: Public Administration as Democratic Statesmanship, a distinguished group of contributors examines the role of the American civil service under the Constitution. The common concern that unites the otherwise diverse approaches of the authors is the conception of public administration as a particular form of political activity. The contributors relate administrative issues to the broader questions of political life, such as political judgment and responsibility, the Constitution and constitutionalism, and the promotion of human liberty and the common good. They aim to encourage the administrator to become a democratic statesman. Present and prospective American civil servants, as well as political scientists and political philosophers, will find this book of interest.

Marek Edelman: Being on the right side
The first biography of Marek Edelman (1919-2009): one of the commanders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, renowned physician, and defender of human rights. Zbigniew Brzezinski has written about Edelman to the authors: 'A Jewish fighter and Polish soldier during the World War 2. A leftist who never believed in communism. A critic of Israel who refused to recognize the Palestinians' resistance movement until they relinquished terrorism. A doctor who saved human lives with pioneering heart surgeries. An activist of Solidarity, arrested under the rules of the martial law in Poland. A hero'. The authors, active in the democratic opposition under communism, interviewed Edelman for the first time on behalf of an illegal paper they published clandestinely. From that moment on, meetings with Edelman became a part of their lives. They ended up devoting no fewer than three books to Edelman. Each one was a bestseller in Poland, and translations were published in Israel, Germany, and Russia. The English-language version of this biography is based on all three of these books and many conversations with Edelman.

Poverty & Race in America: The Emerging Agendas
Collected in this volume are the best articles and symposia from Poverty & Race, the bimonthly newsletter journal of The Poverty & Race Research Action Council (PRRAC), a Washington, DC-based national public interest organization founded in 1990. Poverty & Race in America includes over six-dozen works originally published between mid-2001 and 2005, many of which have been updated and revised. The contributors represent the best of progressive thought and activism on America's two most salient, and seemingly intractable, domestic problems-race and poverty. Divided into topical sections, this volume considers the issues of race, poverty, housing, education, health, and democracy. Poverty & Race in America is especially concerned with the links between and among these areas, both for purposes of analysis and policy prescriptions. Featuring a foreword by Congressman Jesse L. Jackson, Jr., this edited collection will be of great interest to policy makers and human rights activists and hopefully stimulate creative thought and action to bring an end to racism and poverty.
