Crossing to Freedom by Virginia Frances Schwartz Book Summary:

An inspiring tale of fugitive slave who finds freedom in Canada, but still struggles to find a real home. Eleven-year-old Solomon is a fugitive slave on a dangerous journey north to Canada, and to freedom. His young life has seen many losses: his mother was sold in a slave auction when he was a baby; his father escaped from the plantation and hasn't been seen in five years; and now his grandfather, who has been injured during the last leg of their journey to freedom, and is forced to stay behind.Solomon continues with their group leader, but his feelings of loss and isolation haunt him, as he attempts to forge a new home in Canada. It soon becomes apparent that racial prejudices know no borders, and while Solomon works hard and begins to experience some newfound freedoms, he faces discrimination and segregation and lives with the ongoing fear of being caught by slavecatchers and dragged back to the South. With all of these barriers facing him, Solomon must find the strength - the same strength that brought him north, the same strength that gives him hope of finding his father - to persevere and understand the true meaning of freedom.

Retirement Income for Life by Frederick Vettese Book Summary:

Canada’s #1 bestselling retirement income book is now completely revised and updated. Vettese will show you how to mitigate risk and secure your financial future in these unpredictable times. As COVID-19 rocks the economy in an unprecedented black swan event, retirees and those who are preparing to retire need answers to pressing questions about their financial futures. Originally published in 2018, the second edition of Retirement Income for Life, has been completely revised and updated, and now includes: New chapters on early retirement, retiring single, what to do when one spouse dies young, and more. Three strategies for mitigating your personal financial risk in the current downturn in equities and other investment products. Advice on how to plan for (and even benefit from) the coming bear market, resulting from COVID-19, which will create unprecedented equity buying opportunities, possibly as early as 2021. Information on the impact of unbearably low interest rates on annuities and fixed income investments and what to do if you hold them. The reasons retirees should be deferring CPP until age 70 and why the case for this is stronger than ever. Author Frederick Vettese demystifies a complex and often frightening subject and provides practical, actionable advice based on five enhancements the reader can make to mitigate risk and secure their financial future. With over one thousand Canadians turning 65 every day, the cultivation of good decumulation practices — the way in which you draw down assets in retirement, ideally to have a secure income for the rest of your life — has become an urgent matter that no one can afford to ignore.

Constitutional Life and Europe's Area of Freedom, Security and Justice by Alun Howard Gibbs Book Summary:

The challenge of thinking about the place of constitutionalism beyond the conventional categories of the nation state has become a principal concern for legal and political scholars. This book casts this issue in a different light by exploring the implications for the constitutionalism of legal integration in the European Union's 'area of freedom, security and justice'. In doing so it makes a novel contribution to an understanding of the European Union as a political community beyond the state, but in addition explores how this entails thinking differently about what is essential concerning constitutionalism. The book argues that instead of seeking to theorise constitutional foundations we actually begin to encounter the constitutional life implied by political and legal practices in the European Union and as exemplified here by 'the area of freedom, security and justice'.

Mining for Freedom by Sylvia Alden Roberts Book Summary:

Did you know that an estimated 5,000 blacks were an early and integral part of the California Gold Rush? Did you know that black history in California precedes Gold Rush history by some 300 years? Did you know that in California during the Gold Rush, blacks created one of the wealthiest, most culturally advanced, most politically active communities in the nation? Few people are aware of the intriguing, dynamic often wholly inspirational stories of African American argonauts, from backgrounds as diverse as those of their less sturdy- complexioned peers. Defying strict California fugitive slave laws and an unforgiving court testimony ban in a state that declared itself free, black men and women combined skill, ambition and courage and rose to meet that daunting challenge with dignity, determination and even a certain lan, leaving behind a legacy that has gone starkly under-reported. Mainstream history tends to contribute to the illusion that African Americans were all but absent from the California Gold Rush experience. This remarkable book, illustrated with dozens of photos, offers definitive contradiction to that illusion and opens a door that leads the reader into a forgotten world long shrouded behind the shadowy curtains of time.

Beyond the Wilds: Helena's Pursuit of Freedom by Mary Kolisnyk Spry-Myers Book Summary:

In the 1800s, a European peasant desired freedom from his dominant, uncaring landlord in Ukraine. He chose a new life and country for himself and his family, immigrating to the wilds of Manitoba, Canada. The very primitive lifestyle in the frontier wilderness of Canadian woodlands provided the backdrop of the formidable challenges, difficulties and hardships he and his family had experienced-through long years of adjustment-on the road to survival and success. The story takes you on many interesting journeys, across the sea, through time, to a conclusion. This saga tells a heart-gripping human story embedded in history, exemplifying the courage and strength of this family, and highlighting one particular individual, Helena. Ukraine, situated in Southeastern Europe, is about one-tenth the size of Canada. Its countryside is very picturesque with abundant rich agricultural land and has gained the reputation as the "breadbasket" of Europe. At the height of feudalism until 1848, male peasants forced into serfdom were not allowed to own land in Ukraine. After serfdom was abolished, most male peasants were too poor financially to purchase land. One of them was a Ukrainian peasant, Jacob, who found landlessness extremely depressing. His landlord owned the land he and his family lived on. Jacob built the dwellings on the land, but was unable to purchase the land. Jacob heard about an offer from the Canadian government for Europeans willing to purchase 160 acres of land for ten dollars. He decided to pursue the opportunity, not realizing the difficulties and challenges he and his family would have to go through in order to survive. Mary experienced much anxiety during the journey by ship to Montreal. Several of her children became ill. She also had many concerns about the family's uncertain future in a new country. Mary's feelings of insecurity grew during their wagon ride through miles of deep wooded area to reach their new home. She took notice of the uninhabited territory for miles around. Mary soon learned that children walked many miles through the woods to attend school. Wild animals were close by. Temperatures went as low as thirty to forty degrees below zero during the winter months. The story expands on the eldest child, Michael, his marriage to Helena and their family. Their first intimate relationship was on their wedding night. It took place in a hayloft with the sound of cattle chewing and moving around below them. Michael had a strong desire to own land before having children. This desire was overtaken by the birth of their son, Bohdan, about nine months following their marriage. Unfortunately, because a doctor was not available in the area, the boy died from pneumonia at a very young age. Michael and Helena's family increased rapidly. Michael agreed to a partnership with Helena's brother, Jack, over a down payment for a farm estate. Michael was at first thrilled with this venture, but unfortunately they experienced many years of financial depression. Jack decided to walk away from the deal and left the farm to Michael. One of the highlights on the farm Helena enjoyed the most was having a larger home for the children. Her sister, Nellie, visited and stayed on for short periods, helping her with the children. On one occasion, Nellie took care of the children while Michael and Helena went out for a neighborhood get-together four miles from their home. They traveled to their destination by horse and stone boat. The ride home became a nightmare when Michael was not able to control the horse with the reins. The horse finally stopped at the barn door. Michael was astonished when he turned around to talk to Helena and realized she was no longer with him. Where was she? Michael's farming experience became more depressing as more payments were deferred and obligations unmet.. During this very low period, Michael met an elderly

After serfdom was abolished, most male peasants were too poor financially to purchase land. One of them was a Ukrainian peasant, Jacob, who found landlessness extremely depressing. His landlord owned the land he and his family lived on. Jacob built the dwellings on the land, but was unable to purchase the land. Jacob heard about an offer from the Canadian government for Europeans willing to purchase 160 acres of land for ten dollars. He decided to pursue the opportunity, not realizing the difficulties and challenges he and his family would have to go through in order to survive. Mary experienced much anxiety during the journey by ship to Montreal. Several of her children became ill. She also had many concerns about the family's uncertain future in a new country. Mary's feelings of insecurity grew during their wagon ride through miles of deep wooded area to reach their new home. She took notice of the uninhabited territory for miles around. Mary soon learned that children walked many miles through the woods to attend school. Wild animals were close by. Temperatures went as low as thirty to forty degrees below zero during the winter months. The story expands on the eldest child, Michael, his marriage to Helena and their family. Their first intimate relationship was on their wedding night. It took place in a hayloft with the sound of cattle chewing and moving around below them. Michael had a strong desire to own land before having children. This desire was overtaken by the birth of their son, Bohdan, about nine months following their marriage. Unfortunately, because a doctor was not available in the area, the boy died from pneumonia at a very young age. Michael and Helena's family increased rapidly. Michael agreed to a partnership with Helena's brother, Jack, over a down payment for a farm estate. Michael was at first thrilled with this venture, but unfortunately they experienced many years of financial depression. Jack decided to walk away from the deal and left the farm to Michael. One of the highlights on the farm Helena enjoyed the most was having a larger home for the children. Her sister, Nellie, visited and stayed on for short periods, helping her with the children. On one occasion, Nellie took care of the children while Michael and Helena went out for a neighborhood get-together four miles from their home. They traveled to their destination by horse and stone boat. The ride home became a nightmare when Michael was not able to control the horse with the reins. The horse finally stopped at the barn door. Michael was astonished when he turned around to talk to Helena and realized she was no longer with him. Where was she?

My Struggle for Freedom by Hans Kung,Hans Küng Book Summary:

Hans Kung is undoubtedly one of the most important theologians of our time, but he has always been a controversial figure, and as the result of a much-publicized clash over papal infallibility had his permission to teach revoked by the Vatican. Yet at seventy-five years of age Kung is also something of a senior statesman, one of the -Group of Eminent Persons convened by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan and a friend of heads of government like Britain's Tony Blair and President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt. In this fascinating autobiography Kung gives a frank and outspoken account of the first four decades of his life. He tells of his youth in Switzerland and his decision to become a priest, of his doubts and struggles as he studied in Rome and Paris, and of his experiences as a professor in Tubingen, where he received a chair at the early age of thirty-one. Most importantly, as one of the last surviving eyewitnesses of Vatican II, Kung gives an authentic account of the conflicts behind the scenes. Here it becomes clear just how major an influence he was, to the point of shaping the Council's agenda and drafting speeches for bishops to deliver in plenary sessions. Kung's book offers an acute analysis, compelling in its drama, of meetings with presidents like John F. Kennedy, popes like John XXIII and Paul VI, great theologians like Karl Barth and Karl Rahner, and journeys around the world. With its rich thought and vivid narrative, it paints a moving picture of Kung's personal convictions, including his relentless struggle for a Christianity characterized not by the domination of an official church but by Jesus.

A Twist of the Knife by Stephen Solomita Book Summary:

A hard-nosed cop tears into the criminal shadow world of the Lower East Side On the streets of downtown Manhattan, there is no better disguise than the vacant stare and limp slouch of the junkie. Masquerading as an addict, Johnny Katanos goes undetected as he slithers up the fire escape towards the biggest heroin operation in the city of New York. He disables the alarms, distracts the guards, kills the Dobermans, and is waiting with a grenade when Ronald Jefferson Chadwick, drug kingpin, returns with a suitcase full of cash. A few minutes later, the money is gone, Chadwick is dead, and the factory has been reduced to a fireball. Though the New York Police Department rarely investigates a dealer’s death, a Russian-made grenade appearing downtown is cause for fear. The case falls to Stanley Moodrow, a beefy detective who knows that in an investigation like this, there’s no time to go by the book.
