The Chocolate Temptation

Romantic Times acclaims Laura Florand's work as "sensuous and sumptuous", nominating her for Best Book of 2013, and NPR says it's "explosive, sensual . . . and utterly sweet". Now, in her sixth book in the award-winning Amour et Chocolat series, Florand takes us into a top Paris restaurant’s pastry kitchen and into the hearts and irresistible temptations of its chefs. She hated him. Patrick Chevalier. The charming, laid-back, golden second-in-command of the Paris pastry kitchen where Sarah worked as intern, who made everything she failed at seem so easy, and who could have every woman he winked at falling for him without even trying. She hated him, but she’d risked too much for this drea...

Sacred Weapons, Profane Enemies

This book tells the story of how Saint John Paul II politically deployed sacred weapons and profane enemies in his war on communism. The effects of his deployment – chiefly during his three pilgrimages to communist Poland – were to evoke and refashion nationalist and religious cultural memories shaped over centuries and thereby influence the prevailing political culture of opposition. In his doing so, the Polish Pope inspired the opposition to peacefully and successfully challenge a communist regime that had at its disposal a full panoply of repressive forces. The Pope’s sacred weapons were above all the powerful myths and symbols attached to holy figures, wars, insurrections and martyrdom, and the potent rituals of anniversary commemorations, holy masses, beatifications, canonizations and pilgrimages afforded to him as Head of the Roman Catholic Church. Poland’s profane enemies were the Jewish, German and Russian Enemies and the powerful myths and symbols associated with them.

Legacy

Who are the Jews--a race, a people, a religious group? For over a century, non-Jews and Jews alike have tried to identify who they were--first applying the methods of physical anthropology and more recently of population genetics.

Much of the book is told through the lives of scientific pioneers. We meet Russian immigrant Maurice Fishberg; Australian Joseph Jacobs, the leading Jewish anthropologist in fin-de-siècle Europe; Chaim Sheba, a colorful Is...
