  • It Takes A Woman – Pre-order

    It Takes a Woman retraces the early life of Agyeman‐Rawlings who rose to prominence as the First Lady of the Republic of Ghana (1982-2000). She redefined the privilege of serving a nation, and sought every platform to champion the causes of underserved citizenry and women. While her husband, former President Jerry John Rawlings, embarked on a relentless pursuit of transforming Ghana into a model of African democracy, Mrs. Agyeman-Rawlings founded the 31st December Women’s Movement (the 31st DWM), an organisation which played a pivotal role in the empowerment of women, and in addressing issues of systemic gender inequality, not only in Ghana but across the African region.

    Born in an era when women were overtly marginalised, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings’ strong relationship with her father, mother and family elders formed the core of much of her formative years. Fortified by her unique family history, she was raised to never accept the notion that there were some things she could not do, simply because she was a woman.”

    The narrative captures the family history of a spirited little girl, and as she walks us through the refreshingly detailed scenes from her childhood, we are transported to a hopeful and quintessential Ghana, where a sense of national pride resounded powerfully at the time of independence. But as she recalls Ghana’s struggles post-independence, we are also confronted face to face with her juxtaposed emotions of elation and frustration, hurt and joy, certainty and dread. She was not to know that her personal life being upended early one morning in 1979 would also become a turning point in the nation’s history and would thrust her into the glare of international publicity.

    It Takes a Woman, written with unflinching candour, is an absorbing portrait of a life devoted to public service and shaped by heritage. Above all, it is an account of resilience. The voices of the women who stood tall will forever inspire Agyeman-Rawlings to stand for many more whose voices may not be loud enough to stand on their own.

  • Joan of Arc: Heavenly Warrior

    Joan of Arc was born a French peasant who knew nothing of warfare. Yet she heard heavenly voices telling her that she alone could save her country in its war with England and restore Charles VII as the king of France. Deeply religious and remarkably courageous, Joan was devoted to her saints, her God, her king, and her people. And so she journeyed across the embattled countryside to fight for the future of France, risking capture and even death. She achieved great military success, both as a leader and as a warrior. Joan was ultimately captured, sold to the enemy, found guilty of heresy, and put to death in 1431. But twenty-five years later, the church overturned the verdict and finally in 1920 pronounced her Saint Joan of Arc. Today she is considered a national hero by French citizens and an inspiration to people of all nationalities and faiths.

  • Julie Andrews: A Life on Stage and Screen – Hardcover

    Julie Andrews has been a star for a half century. She has triumphed on stage, in the movies, and on television. A theatrical legend as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, she soon became the most beloved actress in the world, winning an Oscar for Mary Poppins. But, at the peak of her enormous success, Andrews was unhappy enough to submit to daily psychotherapy. After two flop movie musicals, Star! and Darling Lili, the press and public seemed to turn on her. Box-office poison in Hollywood, she starred in an Emmy-winning television variety series, wrote two children’s books, performed live, and concentrated on her growing family.

    When she did reemerge in movies in the 1980s, it was in sensationally different roles. Julie played a “man” in the movie Victor/Victoria and mocked her own goody-two-shoes image by literally baring her breast in S.O.B. In the 1990s she returned to Broadway, starring in Victor/Victoria.

    Here is the story of Julie Andrews — her meteoric rise, devastating fall, and incredible comeback, from the little English girl with a crystalline voice to the legend who has outlasted her critics.

    Living History

    A surprisingly engaging and, at points, even compelling book…Clinton provides enough of a peek behind the curtain to keep the pages turning and presents intriguing new details on her role in shaping the policies of her husband’s presidency.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton is known to hundreds of millions of people around the world. Yet few beyond her close friends and family have ever heard her account of her extraordinary journey. She writes with candor, humor and passion about her upbringing in suburban, middle-class America in the 1950s and her transformation from Goldwater Girl to student activist to controversial First Lady. Living History is her revealing memoir of life through the White House years. It is also her chronicle of living history with Bill Clinton, a thirty-year adventure in love and politics that survives personal betrayal, relentless partisan investigations and constant public scrutiny.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton came of age during a time of tumultuous social and political change in America. Like many women of her generation, she grew up with choices and opportunities unknown to her mother or grandmother. She charted her own course through unexplored terrain — responding to the changing times and her own internal compass — and became an emblem for some and a lightning rod for others. Wife, mother, lawyer, advocate and international icon, she has lived through America’s great political wars, from Watergate to Whitewater.

    The only First Lady to play a major role in shaping domestic legislation, Hillary Rodham Clinton traveled tirelessly around the country to champion health care, expand economic and educational opportunity and promote the needs of children and families, and she crisscrossed the globe on behalf of women’s rights, human rights and democracy. She redefined the position of First Lady and helped save the presidency from an unconstitutional, politically motivated impeachment. Intimate, powerful and inspiring, Living History captures the essence of one of the most remarkable women of our time and the challenging process by which she came to define herself and find her own voice — as a woman and as a formidable figure in American politics.
