Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description.
The first of two volumes to be published, in This is my Story, This is my Song, Leonard S. Buxton recounts the first half of his engaging life and his long career in ministry. He has written a very entertaining personal account of his upbringing as the son of a fire-and-brimstone Evangelical preacher during the Depression, the beginnings of his political consciousness through WWll, his college life and the strict mores of the 1950s, and moving from parish to parish with his young family during the turbulent social change of the 1960s and early 1970s. As a professor of psychology at Claflin, a black university in South Carolina, Leonard recalls his activism within the church—and literally in his own backyard—to break down the resistance to desegregation and to support the civil rights movement. This book is filled with evocative photographs and colorful firsthand history, its joys and heartbreaks: Studebakers and VWs, the Red Sox and Yankees, teen hang-outs in drugstores, music, dramatic productions, and church camping, the serious social stigma of divorce, the illegality of adultery, the scourge of polio, the loss of a child, group ‘encounter sessions,’ George McGovern, Benjamin Spock, Kent State, burning crosses . . . A man devoted to building congregations as a pastor, psychologist, parish counselor, teacher and activist, Leonard depicts characters and narrates events with remarkable acuity. This book is a rich reflection on his experiences, written with candor and humility, and observing people and events through the kind lens of his dedication to serving others and his evolving faith as a Methodist minister. To quote one of Leonard’s aspirations for this memoir, “For those still casting around an unclear future, this may say ‘Take heart; life will be full of surprises.’”
'I have lived in a world of whispered conversations and secrets. I have lived in a world of murder, corruption, bribery, crime and fear. A world where to ask too many questions would see you belted for your curiosity. A world with rules for men and where women know their place... I am a wife with no husband. I am a mother with no children.' Judith Moran is an extraordinary survivor - she has has been in remission from cancer from nearly forty years and survived an horrific car accident. She has also found herself at the centre of the gangland murders in Melbourne, a vendetta which has so far claimed twenty-four lives, including those of her ex-husband and her two sons, one of whom was gunned down in front of his children.

In This Is My Story, thirteen successful African American women clergy tell the powerful, inspirational, and sometimes heartbreaking stories of their calls and ministerial journeys, which they experienced in the midst of anguish, uncertainty, and in many cases unfriendly leadership environments. Each of the women includes a sermon of particular importance to her.

In the early hours of 2 October 2001, Mamdouh Habib and two young German men were taken off a bus travelling between Quetta and Karachi by Pakistani security officers. It was shortly after 9/11, and only days before the Americans attacked Afghanistan. The Pakistanis, at the behest of the Americans, were rounding up anyone who in any way looked suspicious, interrogating them and passing them onto the Americans. The unlucky ones were then 'rendered' to a third-party country to be further interrogated and tortured, where they either disappeared for good or were sent to Guantanamo Bay, branded as terrorists with no legal rights. This is what happened to Mamdouh Habib. It took nearly three-and-a-half years before he was eventually released without charge from Guantanamo and reunited with his wife and four children in Australia. The original American draft charges had accused him of attending al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan, and of training the 9-11 terrorists in martial arts. They even suggested he was meant to have been on one of the 9-11 hijacked planes. The true story of the kidnapping and incarceration of Mamdouh Habib first in Egypt then in Guantanamo is told here by him for the first time. The complicity of the Australian government in his abduction to Egypt is revealed, and its subsequent neglect of him while in Guantanamo. His relationship with other well-known alleged terrorists, including meeting David Hicks both in Afghanistan and in Guantanamo, also comes to light. My Story is also the account of a young Egyptian man who migrated to Australia in 1982 in order to settle down and to make a good life for himself. It is about his marriage to Maha, a remarkable young woman originally from Lebanon, who was to become his steadfast companion, and who throughout the years of ordeal tirelessly fought for the release of her husband and the restitution of his name.
