Witnessing a divided country, he brought an unparalleled level of unity within his nation and across other nations. Although he acquired wealth and fortunes that go beyond the dreams of kings, he gave it all away in charity to the poor, hungry, and those in need. Does he inspire you?

Scion of the Pittsburgh oil and banking family, William Larimer Mellon, Jr., was married, the father of three, and a successful rancher in Arizona when, at thirty-seven, he read a Life magazine article about Albert Schweitzer's "reverence for life" that guided his mission hospital in a remote area of Gabon, Africa. Mellon immediately wrote to the famous humanitarian in Lambarene, expressing admiration of Schweitzer's life of service and the wish to engage in similar work with his wife, Gwendolyn. Schweitzer's reply in March 1948 was alengthy letter of realistic encouragement. He wrote, '1 was very much moved upon reading your letter and felt a certain responsibility towards you . . . Do not delude yourself about how difficult it will be. . . .Be sure from the beginning that you have a sound foundation in practical things: physical examinations and the laboratory procedures for blood and urine. . . .One thing that will astound you coming from me: avoid specialized study intropical disease! ... What matters most is to have knowledge that is both basic and practical, solid and far-reaching." In time, Mellon received his medical degree from Tulane University and later established a well-equipped hospital in one of the poorest regions of Haiti, where, with his wife, hespent the rest of his life working as a physicianand a community development engineer.The hospital continues to thrive. Brothers in Spirit brings together sixty-five of the letters written between 1947 and Schweitzer's death in 1965. Presented here inboth English and the original French, they eloquentlytell the story of a comfortable lifeabandoned for the goal of serving humanity.

Can the reading public imagine a less likely but more needed book than "Stories for Men"--a seventy-five-year- old anthology edited by Charles Grayson--written in an age when such a title would scarcely raise an eyebrow! Imagine a book about men in which the featured theme is "not "rapists, child abusers, or men who never weep, feel little sorrow, or prefer dog fighting to baseball. To say the least, this is a counter-cultural collective portrait necessary in today's politically correct world. The original editor, Charles Grayson, hit the nail on the head in his "explicit" opening remarks. "The only claim we make for this book is that it doesn't pretend to offer the best, or the finest, in the world's foremost short stories by contemporary masters. Simply it is just a bundle of yarns by present day American writers, each dealing with a different phase of the actions and activities of men, designed for good reading." The text fulfills its mission. The work features little known short stories by such major writers as Erskine Caldwell on racial relations, James M. Cain on murder, James T. Farrell on street life, Dashiell Hammett on men and divorce, Ring W. Lardner on baseball, Damon Runyon on football, William Saroyan on horseracing, Thomas Wolfe on travel, William Faulkner on foreigners, among many others. For readers interested in a slice of America, this will be a book of inestimable value as well as personal pleasure. Stories for Men will prove ideal.

In 1913, Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) left his internationally renowned career as a theologian, philosopher, and organ player to open a hospital in the jungles of Africa. There he developed in theory and practice his ethics of reverence for life. When he published his most important philosophical work, The Philosophy of Civilization, few people were serious about treating animals with dignity and giving any consideration to environmental issues. Schweitzer's urge was heard but not fully appreciated. One hundred years later, we are in a better position to do it. Predrag Cicovacki's book is a call to restore Schweitzer's vision. After critically and systematically discussing the most important aspects of the ethics of reverence for life, Cicovacki argues that the restoration of Schweitzer does not mean the restoration of any particular doctrine. It means summoning enough courage to reverse the deadly course of our civilization. And it also means establishing a way of life that stimulates striving toward what is the best and highest in human beings.

As seen on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, The Boston Globe, and The Miami Herald. Over a billion people love his true story. Do you? Life is a chain of trials. From infancy, to childhood, to adolescence, to adulthood and old age, struggles are everywhere throughout life. But it seems that struggle is growing in number and increasing in magnitude, a trend never seen before in history. We live in a world of wealth inequality, poverty, wide scale hunger, discrimination, exploitation, water shortages, pollution, drugs and addiction, global warming, obesity, wars, and so many other problems. What are we going to do? When will we change our situation? To solve the problems of today, we must focus on tomorrow. In order to change the world, change must first start from within ourselves. Change is a seed, nurtured through inspiration - inspiration in the examples of those who have succeeded before us. In the model businessman, the phenomenal philanthropists, the just military commanders, the influential political leaders, the beloved spouses, the nurturing parents, and the ultimate peacemakers. But are there actually figures from whom we can gain broad and deep inspiration to effectively bring about change? How many people have influenced their community, their country, their continent, and our world by simultaneously holding all of the roles mentioned? Is it even possible to find all of these positions held by a single person? What if I told you there was? What if you didn't have to look at thousands or hundreds or even ten figures to find all these traits? What if you could find all these qualities, what if you could find all this inspiration by looking at the life of just a single person? What if you could see, hear, understand, and carry out change from learning about a man who mastered all these roles plus more? What if I told you about The Greatest Man of All Time? He inspires over a billion people in the world today. In a time when ignorance, corruption, and violence were rampant in society, he guided people to knowledge, justice, and peace. In a time when his nation was divided, he brought an unparalleled level of unity within his state and across other nations. Although he acquired wealth and fortunes that go beyond the dreams of kings, he gave it all away in charity to the poor, hungry, and those in need...Does he inspire you?

Sato Haruo has been called one of the most representative writers of the Taisho era (1912-1926), a transitional period following Japan's monumental push toward modernization. Although he never identified himself as a modernist, Sato exhibited what some writers have identified as a characteristic of modernism: a complex net of contradictory impulses that embrace both the revolutionary and the conservative, revealing both an optimistic looking to the future and a pessimistic nostalgia for the past. Six stories of amazing diversity and two critical essays revealing the understated Japanese ideals of beauty make up this volume, all translated into English for the first time. Forming a sequel to the three stories published in Sato's The Sick Rose, these stories exhibit an extraordinary variety of themes and styles, ranging from poetic fairy tales to psychological portraits to who-done-it crime stories. The title story is a utopian dream of a better city, populated by ideal people, that vanishes in a mirage. Another tale portrays the loneliness of a man unsuccessful with women. A third embellishes a bare Basho haiku about the man next door. Here too are the dream ballad of a Chinese prince, the imaginary world of a mad Japanese artist in Paris, and the probing search for an opium-drugged murderer. Sato's critical essays that conclude this volume have their themes in an exploration of the sad beauty of impermanence, the nature of enlightenment, the awareness of self, the merging of the instant and the eternal, and the "self-indulgent, unrestrained beauty" of the Japanese language. This collection not only affords insights into the complexity of the work of a gifted writer, but also significantly broadens the perspective of the literary world of the Taisho period.
