The last novel Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American fiction. It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.
This book introduces the scholarly work of a number of new researchers working on the history and culture of the Caribbean. The eleven essays in this book cover topical themes and issues relating to those two subject areas, and specifically address the topics of colonialism, slavery, the Christianizing and moralizing missions, education, art history, and musical culture in the form of Reggae and its interactions with politics.

The Grandview Flea Market and Farmer's Exchange (or The 'View) is an oasis of gray-market commerce where antiques of questionable vintage fight for space against an explosion of bootleg designer vinyl handbags and the Chinese vendors who hock them. 5 acres of muck and mire, Italian sausages and hamburgers, comic books and handbags, cheap plastic toys and classic records all baked under the summer sun like Hell's garage sale. The center of that Hell is Istanbul, a former dairy barn, dancehall, and bingo parlor now a great indoor bazaar where the old guard of The 'View barter their junk. Spend a weekend with the dwellers and sellers of the 'View as they navigate this world of cash-only commerce. Each tale stands alone but offers pieces of a larger story told throughout around the question of who killed Flannery Collins and what does that mean to those who call the 'View home?
Henry, now in the autumn of his years, is transported back to the key episodes of his life. At once ironic and affectionate, he speaks with his younger self both man and boy, offering warnings of a life to come and advice on how he might live it without the small self-delusions and regrets that leave him ultimately unfulfilled. Warm, funny and always entertaining Hock and Soda Water is a nostalgic lament for a life never lived. Christopher Morahan directs this quintessentially English comedy about the recipe for happiness through the three ages of man at the Chichester Festival Theatre from November 2001.
The purpose of this book is to provide a concise account of those parasites which affect man in developed countries. Other textbooks relate mainly to the tropics and subtropics where parasites by comparison are more common. It is widely believed that this difference in prevalence between tropical and temperate countries is due to differences in climatic conditions alone. Whilst it is true that certain vectors can only act as transmitters of disease under climatic conditions found in the tropics, there are many other instances where climate per se is not a decisive factor. More often parasitic disease is related to the poor standards of hygiene, sanitation and nutrition, which characterize many of these tropical and subtropical areas. The advent of more international travel has added a new dimension to the study of parasites, with the appearance of rare and exotic parasitic infections in the West. This book encompasses the entire field of parasites in developed countries with a brief reference to other parts of the world whenever appropriate for the sake of completeness. Each chapter provides basic information as well as recent advances and current thinking. Thus the book will serve as an excellent, comprehensive in troduction to those taking up a specialized interest in the subject, as well as those who may wish to obtain general information but are not actively working in the field. Although it is primarily written from a medical and veterinary stand point, it provides valuable material for other disciplines.
