The Prime Minister of Paradise

Original Synopsis

"The Prime Minister of Paradise has a total of 250 pages which are papers from writer 'John Jeremiah Sullivan'. As a student working in the dusty archives of the Sewanee Review, John Jeremiah Sullivan came across an article entitled ‘Lost Utopia of the American Frontier’ and was immediately hooked on the dramatic story of a lost book, an alternative history of the South, a white Indian. It was a story he’d chase for the next two decades. In 1735, a charismatic German lawyer and accused atheist named Christian Gottlieb Priber fled Germany under threat of arrest, bound for colonial South Carolina. In the Cherokee village of Grand Tellico, he created a Utopian society that he named Paradise. For six years, Paradise was governed by a set of revolutionary ideas that included racial equality, sexual freedom, and a lack of private property, ideas which he chronicled in a mysterious manuscript he called Paradise. Priber’s ideas were so subversive that he was hunted for half a decade and eventually captured by the British – making headlines across the world – and imprisoned until his death. The only copy of Paradise was apparently destroyed. Now, in a rare combination of ground-breaking research and stunning narrative skill, award-winning writer John Jeremiah Sullivan brings that lost history vividly to life. 2019-06-06 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"

Paradise Lost?

Original Synopsis

"Paradise Lost? has a total of 234 pages which are papers from writer 'Ali Riaz, Subho Basu'. Paradise Lost examines the state-society relationships in Nepal and demonstrates that the nature of the state, disjuncture between the state and the society, and the rupture of the ideological hegemony of the ruling class of Nepal have created a situation where existing institutional frameworks are disintegrating and the state is rapidly unraveling. Dr. Ali Riaz and Dr. Subho Basu analyze the roles of ethnicity, identity, and deprivation, in engendering discontent and the rise of the Maoists as a formidable political force. Mindful of the geo-strategic importance of the country, this book contextualizes these domestic developments within the post-9/11 global world. Jointly authored by a political scientist and a historian this book brings together structural and historical perspectives. Written in an engaging language, Paradise Lost? will appeal to political scientists, historians, sociologists, and those interested in current affairs. 2007-04-16 time of publication of the book, [-Lexington Books-]"

Paradise in Our Backyard

Original Synopsis

"Paradise in Our Backyard has a total of 248 pages which are papers from writer 'Karna Sakya'. IF WE SAY THAT NEPAL HAS PLUNGED INTO DARKNESS, THEN IT IS OUR DUTY, OUR RIGHT, AND INDEED, OUR JOY TO SAVE IT. THE FATE OF THE COUNTRY IS IN OUR HANDS. In Paradise in Our Backyard, Karna Sakya—conservationist, entrepreneur and patriot—relates how he set up the now iconic Kathmandu Guest House in his family’s historic house in Thamel. The hotel ushered in a new chapter in tourism in Nepal and was instrumental in establishing Thamel as the multicultural hub for tourism that it is today. He subsequently set up other hotels and lodges and played a pioneering role in introducing eco-tourism and adventure tourism in Nepal. He introduced the concept of ‘niche’ tourism in Nepal, packaging subjects of interest for discerning travellers, and was also one of the principal architects of the hugely successful ‘Visit Nepal Year’ organized by the Nepali government in 1998 which boosted tourism and gave a huge fillip to the economy. Sakya’s account of growing up in a large Newari joint family in Kathmandu, his higher education in the Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun, his work with the forest department and his distinguished career as entrepreneur and hotelier makes compelling reading. Karna Sakya made an immense contribution to the social sector as well. In 1987, after losing his wife and daughter to cancer, he overcame personal grief to build Nepal’s first cancer hospital by coming up with the innovative idea of levying a one-paisa tax on every cigarette sold in the country. Paradise in Our Backyard, translated by the author from the Nepali best-seller Soch, is a lucid, engaging and honest account of a remarkable life. In a nation that is today battling pessimism and uncertainty, it makes the inspiring point that one man can make a difference, that change can be brought about by hard work and unflagging determination. 2009-04-22 time of publication of the book, [-Penguin UK-]"

Martyrs in Paradise

Original Synopsis

"Martyrs in Paradise has a total of 660 pages which are papers from writer 'Terry Reese Downing'. The quiet moments of global terrorism are over. They were silently on the move and highly motivated against the USA, first and foremost. To the radical extremist fascists' international terrorists' network, the USA was the easiest to infiltrate amongst the world's super powers. Their ultimate target was the entertainment capital of the world, the city of sin and pleasure for the western free world. Assisted by human traffickers and smugglers, their much awaited suicidal martyr was a Woman of Mass Destruction (WMD). Westernized and American educated, desired by almost every man, a woman well adorned as well as scorned, the self appointed terrorist, the self-declared jihadist, the self-anointed martyr was ready to make her move. It all began in an island archipelago in the Pacific, where three young men started out as childhood friends were separated by fate. One became the most wanted notorious non Christian rebel leader in that region, another became a hardened military combat zone officer and the third became... an American. Noor was a casualty turned weapon against the "Infidels". Her mission before she perishes was to inflict as much damage and pain to portions of the society that caused her miseries. To make their statement that the war against terrorism was not over, and will not be over, and will not be won by the "Infidels". She was the network's ultimate weapon against the USA as the start of reviving the plan to totally disabling the US mainland was initiated. She had been very well prepared for a self declared war compounded by ideological pressures from her own kind and groups covering under the protective shield and consolation of religions.

The Flower of Paradise

Original Synopsis

"The Flower of Paradise has a total of 269 pages which are papers from writer 'J.G. Kennedy'. This book concerns the use of the drug qat in North Yemen (Yemen Arab Republic), a country lying on the southwestern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. However, because this substance is so interwoven into the fabric of society and culture, it is also necessarily about Yemen itself. The history and culture of South Arabia are still relatively unknown to the rest of the world, and the drug qat, so widely used there, is equally unknown. Thus, the material we present here should be of interest to all of those concerned with drug use, those who wish to understand more about Yemen and the Middle East, and to the Yemenis themselves. Another purpose is to develop some general understandings about sub stance uses and their effects which are less clouded by the mass hysteria and political considerations which often obscure drug issues in our own society. Examination of drug-use patterns in a country where millions of people are users on a regular basis, and where there has been familiarity with the drug for several hundred years, offers an opportunity to achieve perspectives not possible in countries with different attitudes and without such histories. I am not sanguine about the prospects of our abilities to learn from others or from the past, but I do not think we should abandon hope of doing so. 2012-12-06 time of publication of the book, [-Springer Science & Business Media-]"

Imagining Gay Paradise

Original Synopsis

"Imagining Gay Paradise has a total of 300 pages which are papers from writer 'Gary L. Atkins'. This look at gay paradises in Southeast Asia and the men who created them considers the obstacles gay men have faced in securing a voice as citizens, and how they have used images of paradise in Bali, Bangkok and Singapore to create a sense of refuge, construct homes for themselves, and dissent from typical notions of manhood and masculinity. It focuses on Walter Spies, a gay German painter who in the 1930s depicted Bali as an ideal male aesthetic state; Khun Toc, who founded an architectural paradise called Babylon in Thailand; and the "cyber-paradise" of Fridae.com created by a young Singaporean named Stuart Koe. Collectively, Atkins examines their pursuit of sexual justice, the ideologies of manhood they challenged, the different types of gay spaces they created (geographic, architectural, online), and political obstacles they have encountered.

Dante's Girl

Original Synopsis

"Dante's Girl has a total of 360 pages which are papers from writer 'Courtney Cole'. I have spent every summer since I was ten years old with my father in London. Every summer, since I was ten years old, has been uneventful and boring. Until this year. And this year, after a freak volcanic eruption strands me far from home, I have learned these things: 1. I can make do with one outfit for three days before I buy new clothes. 2. If I hear the phrase, "You're not in Kansas anymore, Toto," even one more time, I might become a homicidal maniac. 3. I am horribly and embarrassingly allergic to jellyfish. 4. I am in love with Dante Giliberti, who just happens to be the beautiful, sophisticated son of the Prime Minister of a Mediterranean paradise. 5. See number four above. Because it brings with it a whole slew of problems and I've learned something from every one of them. Let's start with the fact that Dante's world is five light-years away from mine. He goes to black-tie functions and knows the Prime Minister of England on a first name basis. I was born and raised on a farm in Kansas and wear cut-off jeans paired with cowboy boots. See the difference? But hearts don't care about differences. Hearts want what they want. And mine just wants to be Dante's girl. My heart just might be crazy. 2012 time of publication of the book, [--]"

Paradise of Sport

Original Synopsis

"Paradise of Sport has a total of 242 pages which are papers from writer 'Richard I. Cashman'. Australia has long been regarded as a paradise of sport, but few have questioned why. When and how was this sporting paradise established? Who created it, and for whom? Richard Cashman's Paradise of Sport explores the rise of organized sport in Australia and advances many reasons why sport became so dominant. Australian society was deeply influenced by the games cult inherited from Britain. Strategically located land was found for sporting venues in the new cities, reinforcing sport's lofty status. Abundant waterways and superb beaches encouraged this fascination. Australia's prosperity after the Gold Rush led to an elaborate sporting culture which included grand stadiums, racecourses, gymnasiums, swimming pools and golf links. Sport represented a kind of social unifier, binding new communities, neighbourhoods, suburbs and country towns. Every paradise presupposes its hell. If Australia became a sporting utopia, it was more so for certain Australians: men rather thanwomen; Anglo-Celtic Australians rather than immigrants and Aborigines. Sizeable numbers of women and men came to resent the dominance of sport in Australia. Many intellectuals believe that Australians' preoccupation with sport has been detrimental. Richard Cashman disagrees and contends that sport is central to the business of being Australian. Believing that nothing will be gained by deriding or ignoring sport - the theatre of the masses - he contends that sport, like politics and business, needs to be scrutinized, historicized, and understood. 1995 time of publication of the book, [--]"
