The Union-Castle Line: Sailing Like Clockwork
The Union-Castle Line: Sailing Like
This book charts the history of the British shipping company, the Union-Castle Line. Carrying mail, passengers and cargo between the UK and South Africa, the line began in the middle of the 19th century and ran until its demise in 1977, a victim of emerging competition from jet aircraft, increasing fuel costs and containerization of cargo. This volume investigates the requisition and use of the company vessels for military transportation, identifying the war losses in both World Wars, and includes a review of Union-Castle shipwrecks and some examples of wrecks that have been dived. There are also in-depth and personal accounts of life when in port and on board from dockers, passengers, crew and employees.

Interior Castle Explored: St. Teresa's Teaching on the Life of Deep Union With God
Interior Castle Explored: St. Teresa's Teaching on the
INTERIOR CASTLE EXPLORED is a penetrating interpretation of St. Teresa of Avila's central teaching on prayer. But it is more than a contemporary Carmelite commentary on the 16th-century Carmelite classic; it is also, in its own right, a guide to the life of deep union with God.

Dread, yearning, identity, intrigue, the lethal chemistry between secular doubt and Islamic fanaticism–these are the elements that Orhan Pamuk anneals in this masterful, disquieting novel. An exiled poet named Ka returns to Turkey and travels to the forlorn city of Kars. His ostensible purpose is to report on a wave of suicides among religious girls forbidden to wear their head-scarves. But Ka is also drawn by his memories of the radiant Ipek, now recently divorced. Amid blanketing snowfall and universal suspicion, Ka finds himself pursued by figures ranging from Ipek’s ex-husband to a charismatic terrorist. A lost gift returns with ecstatic suddenness. A theatrical evening climaxes in a massacre. And finding god may be the prelude to losing everything else. Touching, slyly comic, and humming with cerebral suspense, Snow is of immense relevance to our present moment.
