For 1600 years, at the end of the 19th century, the book was lost; then, an Ethiopic manuscript was discovered. This book is based on scholarly reconstruction of the greatest of the Apocalypse sagas, now available for the first time to a wide audience.

The Beautiful Struggle: A Father, Two Sons, and an Unlikely Road to Manhood

#ad
Spiegel & Grau #ad - Among his brood of seven, and big bill, his main challenges were Ta-Nehisi, spacey and sensitive and almost comically miscalibrated for his environment, charismatic and all-too-ready for the challenges of the streets. The beautiful struggle follows their divergent paths through this turbulent period, teachers, and their father’s steadfast efforts—assisted by mothers, histories, and a body of myths, and rituals conjured from the past to meet the needs of a troubled present—to keep them whole in a world that seemed bent on their destruction.

Most of all, he was a wily tactician whose mission was to carry his sons across the shoals of inner-city adolescence—and through the collapsing civilization of Baltimore in the Age of Crack—and into the safe arms of Howard University, where he worked so his children could attend for free. Praise for the beautiful struggle“i grew up in a maryland that lay years, miles and worlds away from the one whose summers and sorrows Ta-Nehisi Coates evokes in this memoir with such tenderness and science; and the greatest proof of the power of this work is the way that, I felt that time, reading it, distance and barriers of race and class meant nothing.

With a remarkable ability to reimagine both the lost world of his father’s generation and the terrors and wonders of his own youth, Coates offers readers a small and beautiful epic about boys trying to become men in black America and beyond. That in telling his story he was telling my own story, for me.

Power vs. Force

#ad
Veritas #ad - Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: Morality, Psychology, Philosophy, and so on. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.

To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from-philosophy, political theory, theology-all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consc iousness.
