The Sancy Blood Diamond - Power, Greed and the Cursed History of One Of The World's Most Coveted Gems, Susan Ronald
166 Susan Ronald The Sancy Blood Diamond - Power, Greed and the Cursed History of One Of The World's Most Coveted Gems
John Wiley & Sons 158722 USA 2004 First Edition 0471436518 / 9780471436515 Hard Cover Near Fine Condition Near Fine 338 pp. This is the fascinating six-hundred-year history of one of the world's most coveted gems and the royal feuds, intrigues, and betrayals it engendered. The Sancy Diamond first came to Europe from India in the fourteenth century, and until 1661 it was the largest white diamond - and the most concentrated and secure form of wealth - in all of Christendom. Alternately believed to impart invincibility to its wearer and to bring ruin to any who owned it, the Sancy cast a seemingly mystical spell over everyone from the king of Portugal to Henry III of France to England's Elizabeth I to Napoleon Bonaparte and Queen Maria Luisa of Spain. The riveting account of one of the most hotly pursued gems in history, "The Sancy Blood Diamond" follows its six-century journey from the diamond mines of Golconda to where it now modestly resides at the Louvre, among the remnants of the French crown jewels.In a colorful, fast-paced narrative, historian Susan Ronald describes the often violent passions the Sancy engendered among many of the giants of European history. She also describes the pivotal roles it played on the chessboard of European geopolitics, and how it was used to raise armies, settle national debts, and enhance its owners' power and prestige. Working from primary sources, Ronald solves, once and for all, the mystery of the Sancy's disappearances in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and she explores the legend of the Sancy curse, which arose after the violent deaths of Burgundy's Charles the Bold, England's Charles I, France's Louis XVI, and other ill-fated owners.

Teaching Hope: Stories from the Freedom Writer Teachers and Erin Gruwell, The Freedom Writer Teachers and Erin Gruwell
168 The Freedom Writer Teachers and Erin Gruwell Teaching Hope: Stories from the Freedom Writer Teachers and Erin Gruwell
Broadway Books 245006 New York 2009 0767931726 / 9780767931724 Softcover Very Good Condition "There are lives lost in this book, and there are lives saved, too, if salvation means a young man or woman begins to feel deserving of a place on the planet. . . . What could be more soul-satisfying? These are the most influential professionals most of us will ever meet. The effects of their work will last forever." -from the foreword by Anna Quindlen Now depicted in a bestselling book and a feature film, the Freedom Writers phenomenon came about in 1994 when Erin Gruwell stepped into Room 203 and began her first teaching job out of college. Long Beach, California, was still reeling from the deadly violence that erupted during the Rodney King riots, and the kids in Erin's classroom reflected the anger, resentment, and hopelessness of their community. Undaunted, Erin fostered an educational philosophy that valued and promoted diversity, tolerance, and communication, and in the process, she transformed her students' lives, as well as her own. Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers went on to establish the Freedom Writers Foundation to replicate the success of Room 203 and provide all students with hope and opportunities to realize their academic potential. Since then, the foundation has trained more than 150 teachers in the United States and Canada. Teaching Hope unites the voices of these Freedom Writer teachers, who share uplifting, devastating, and poignant stories from their classrooms, stories that provide insight into the struggles and triumphs of education in all of its forms. Mirroring an academic year, these dispatches from the front lines of education take us from the anticipation of the first day to the disillusionment, challenges, and triumphs of the school year. These are the voices of teachers who persevere in the face of intolerance, rigid administration, and countless other challenges, and continue to reach out and teach those who are deemed unteachable. Their stories inspire everyone to make a difference in the world around them. 353 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Crossing The Line, Wendell Sailor with Jimmy Thomson
172 Wendell Sailor with Jimmy Thomson Crossing The Line
Simon & Schuster 231710 Australia 2013 First Edition 1922052361 / 9781922052360 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Superstar Brisbane Broncos and Kangaroos winger Wendell Sailor shocked everyone when he switched codes to play union in 2001. The King of the Wing, whose thunderous runs intimidated anyone in his path, surprised even himself when he was selected for the Wallabies, becoming the first Australian player raised in league to represent his country in both codes. But in 2006, it all fell apart. During a routine drug test for the Waratahs, he tested positive for cocaine and was banned from the game for two years. And those years away would prove to the toughest challenge of his life. The self-confessed party boy who constantly sought the public spotlight was now forced to do some soul-searching, and most of it wasn't pretty. But Sailor fought back hard and worked through the shame, throwing himself into charity work and mentoring young people in alcohol and drug awareness programs. With the help of his family and old coach and mentor, Wayne Bennett, he began his path to redemption. When the ban was up, Sailor made a triumphant return to the code that had first discovered him at age 18, and the St George Illawarra Dragons had a new winger - and a player determined to prove what he was capable of until his final game in 2010. But Crossing the Line isn't just Sailor's story as the comeback king. Written with Jimmy Thomson, Wendell reveals a dark secret that has haunted him since childhood. He tells us what it's like to be a black man in a white man's world and the toll racism takes on elite sport. He shows us how good friends and mentors are so important to our national heroes. And he also demonstrates how crucial the bonds of family - and the love and trust of good people - are for anyone, hero or not. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
