Walker’s collection of early nonfiction serves as the manifesto of a young artist—and an illuminating self-portrait What is a womanist? Alice Walker sets out to define the concept in this anthology of early essays and other nonfiction pieces. As she outlines it, a womanist is a person who prefers to side with the oppressed: with women, with people of color, with the poor. As a writer, Walker has always taken such people as her primary subjects, and her search for paths toward self-possession and freedom always holds out hope for the transformative power of compassion and love. Whether she’s taking on nuclear proliferation, the promise and problems of the civil rights movement, or her own creative process, Walker always brings to bear a fearless determination to tell the truth. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Memories establish a connection between a collective and individual past, between origins, heritage, and history. Those who have left their places of birth to make homes elsewhere are familiar with the question, "Where do you come from?" and respond in innumerable well-rehearsed ways. Diasporas construct racialized, sexualized, gendered, and oppositional subjectivities and shape the cosmopolitan intellectual commitment of scholars. The diasporic individual often has a double consciousness, a privileged knowledge and perspective that is consonant with postmodernity and globalization. The essays in this volume reflect on the movements of people and cultures in the present day, when physical, s...

A great architect's personal account of conceiving, designing and building the new Canadian War Museum, a homage to the courage of all Canadians. "It's astonishing," says historian Jack Granatstein of Raymond Moriyama's design for the new Canadian War Museum. "There is a context, there's understanding, there's intelligence...This is the best museum in the whole world. Without question." In Search of a Soul is revered architect Moriyama's personal account of conceiving and creating this important -- perhaps iconic -- national monument, which opened to great acclaim on May 8, 2005, the sixtieth anniversary of VE Day. Illustrated throughout with full-colour plans, drawings and photos, it is a compelling story of one architect's commitment to a vision, and to the country that provided his inspiration. "How can architecture reflect the ambience of battle without overpowering the visitor or glorifying war? What is Canadian? What does war mean?" Moriyama explores the difficult questions he wrestled with as the design took shape. In this bold new museum -- and equally bold book -- a great Canadian artist challenges us to address these troubling questions.
