Book Summary:

A root cause of terrorism in far-away countries, Canadians are told, is poor, desperate young people who turn their frustrations and anger on their "rich oppressors." Uprising brings this scenario home to Canada. When impoverished, disheartened, poorly educated, but well-armed aboriginal young people find a modern revolutionary leader in the tradition of 1880s rebellion leader Louis Riel, they rally with a battle cry "Take Back the Land!" Theirs is a fight to right the wrongs inflicted on them by "the white settlers." They know their minority force cannot take on all Canada. They don't need to. A surprise attack on the nation's most vulnerable assetsits abundant energy resourcessends the Canadian Armed Forces scrambling and politicians reeling. Over a few tension-filled days as the battles rage, the frantic prime minister can only watch as the insurrection paralyzes the country. But when energy-dependent Americans discover the southward flow of Canadian hydroelectricity, oil, and natural gas is halted, they do not remain passive. Although none of Canada's leaders saw it coming, the shattering consequences unfold with the same plausible harmony by which quiet aboriginal protests decades ago became the eerie premonitions of today's stand-offs and "days of action."

Book Summary:

Kenz is under the reign of an oppressive regime led by those they call the Silencers. The youth of the world, who are born into a life with special abilities, are sent on the run, sometimes by their own parents. Now the young refugees must form a resistance and take down the government. Adrian is an anxiety-ridden teenager from Earth whose world was turned upside down five years ago, when her family vanished in front of her. Since then, she’s bounced around between foster homes—until now. Her childhood sweetheart has come back and is taking her to a new world. Frightened at the thought, she finds courage in the chance of finding her little sister once again. But she never expected to find herself with the power necessary to lead a war. Jassyn is the reason that soldiers are afraid to hunt for refugees in the woods. Since the day that she witnessed her family’s massacre, she has been a fighter by every definition. She’s been training herself, honing her body, and turning it into a weapon. Now that Adrian has arrived in Kenz, the war that Jassyn’s family died for, the one that had gone cold, is reignited. The Uprising is a novel that explores the importance of taking a stand. It’s a book about kids and teenagers taking on an army. And although there are always casualties in war, they cling to the hope that they will see the fall of the Silencers.

Book Summary:

Strategic nonviolent action has reasserted itself as a potent force in shaping public debate and forcing political change. Whether it is an explosive surge of protest calling for racial justice in the United States, a demand for democratic reform in Hong Kong or Mexico, a wave of uprisings against dictatorship in the Middle East, or a tent city on Wall Street that spreads throughout the country, when mass movements erupt onto our television screens, the media portrays them as being as spontaneous and unpredictable. In This is an Uprising, political analysts Mark and Paul Engler uncover the organization and well-planned strategies behind such outbursts of protest, examining core principles that have been used to spark and guide moments of transformative unrest. This is an Uprising traces the evolution of civil resistance, providing new insights into the contributions of early experimenters such as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., groundbreaking theorists such as Gene Sharp and Frances Fox Piven, and contemporary practitioners who have toppled repressive regimes in countries such as South Africa, Serbia, and Egypt. Drawing from discussions with activists now working to defend human rights, challenge corporate corruption, and combat climate change, the Englers show how people with few resources and little influence in conventional politics can nevertheless engineer momentous upheavals. Although it continues to prove its importance in political life, the strategic use of nonviolent action is poorly understood. Nonviolence is usually studied as a philosophy or moral code, rather than as a method of political conflict, disruption, and escalation. This is an Uprising corrects this oversight. It argues that if we are always taken by surprise by dramatic outbreaks of revolt, and if we decline to incorporate them into our view of how societies progress, then we pass up the chance to fully grasp a critical phenomenon—and to harness its power to create lasting change.

Book Summary:

This fascinating book, based on extensive archival research in Britain and India, examines why mutineer-rebels chose to attack prisons and release prisoners, discusses the impact of the destruction of the jails on British penal policy in mainland India, considers the relationship between India and its penal settlements in Southeast Asia, re-examines Britain’s decision to settle the Andaman Islands as a penal colony in 1858 and re-evaluates the experiences of mutineer-rebel convicts there. This book makes an important contribution to histories of the mutiny-rebellion, British colonial South Asia, British expansion in the Indian Ocean and incarceration and transportation.

Book Summary:

The Rastafarian's uprising in Montego Bay, Jamaica on 'Black Thursday' April 11th 1963 is an indelible monument in the Rastafarian movement which is indigenous to Jamaica. Selbourne Reid, the author of this book, was a police officer and a member of the rifle group in the leading police party, escaped unhurt but some of his co-workers were seriously injured. He saw a man chopped to death within three to five (3Ft-5Ft) feet away as well as one of his co-worker seriously injured. He ran from the scene and while he was running he saw another of his co-worker being hacked to death. Selbourne could not help, as he had no ammunition for his rifle. This book is designed to satiate the reader who has a flare for humor. For example, The account of 'A memorable lie', or 'The Obeah-man' who stripped a young lady in a public place-in a bar-and anoint her nude body with some type of oil which he said would cause her to have an abortion.' This man did other ludicrous acts and was subsequently arrested. There is also a question as to whether Inspector Fisher was saying 'Where is Jimmy?' even when he was being chopped by the Rastaman. Christian and ethical principles are highlighted in this book, as well as some lessons and techniques, which can be learned by some supervisors, public administrators and police or military leaders. Selbourne was employed in Law enforcement and Social work in Jamaica and the United States of America for over thirty-five years. He writes about certain incidents in his work experience. Selbourne Reid graduated with a BSc. Degree in Public Administration from of The University of The West Indies, Mona campus, Jamaica.

Book Summary:

In early 2011, the nation was stunned to watch Wisconsin’s state capitol in Madison come under sudden and unexpected occupation by union members and their allies. The protests to defend collective bargaining rights were militant and practically unheard of in this era of declining union power. Nearly forty years of neoliberalism and the most severe economic crisis since the Great Depression have battered the labor movement, and workers have been largely complacent in the face of stagnant wages, slashed benefits and services, widening unemployment, and growing inequality. That is, until now. Under pressure from a union-busting governor and his supporters in the legislature, and inspired by the massive uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, workers in Wisconsin shook the nation with their colossal display of solidarity and outrage. Their struggle is still ongoing, but there are lessons to be learned from the Wisconsin revolt. This timely book brings together some of the best labor journalists and scholars in the United States, many of whom were on the ground at the time, to examine the causes and impact of events, and suggest how the labor movement might proceed in this new era of union militancy.

Book Summary:

What does it mean to be healthy? True well-being means so much more than just looking good—it means living without chronic aches and pains, waking up with energy every morning, and maintaining a resilient immune system that protects you from getting ill. The benefits don't end with your own body. Genuinely healthy living empowers you to improve your community—and even the world. Until now, other food philosophies have dominated the conversation of diet as an ethical or socially responsible choice. This eye-opening book argues that Paleo isn't just a diet: it also encompasses physical movement, thought, emotion and spirit, connection and resources, and tribe. Primal Uprising: The Paleo f(x) Guide to Optimizing Your Health, Expanding Your Mind, and Reclaiming Your Freedom makes the case that the modern Paleo way of eating and living can not only make us healthier and happier, it may even save the planet and our souls. Michelle and Keith Norris are cofounders of Paleo f(x), one of the premier wellness conferences in the world and the largest dedicated ancestral health conference in the nation. In Primal Uprising, Michelle and Keith reveal the seven pillars of human health: the physical, mental, emotional, relational, financial, spiritual, and tribal pillars that contribute to making us truly whole. They dive deep into how your body is meant to eat, move, handle stress, find your tribes, and live. In each chapter, they've consulted with the experts—cutting-edge health practitioners, scientists in a variety of fields, coaches and gym owners, popular bloggers, community and sustainability activists, biohackers, chefs, and more—who provide practical advice and tips to help you create a game plan to step into your full potential and thrive. They also outline what you can do right now to start optimizing your whole self and showing up for your community and your environment. Not "just another paleo book," Primal Uprising defines what it means to be Paleo in 2021 and beyond—a manifesto for better health, stronger communities, and a cleaner planet.

Book Summary:

Situating the 1857 Indian uprising within an imperial context, Jill C. Bender traces its ramifications across the four different colonial sites of Ireland, New Zealand, Jamaica, and southern Africa. Bender argues that the 1857 uprising shaped colonial Britons' perceptions of their own empire, revealing the possibilities of an integrated empire that could provide the resources to generate and 'justify' British power. In response to the uprising, Britons throughout the Empire debated colonial responsibility, methods of counter-insurrection, military recruiting practices, and colonial governance. Even after the rebellion had been suppressed, the violence of 1857 continued to have a lasting effect. The fears generated by the uprising transformed how the British understood their relationship with the 'colonized' and shaped their own expectations of themselves as 'colonizer'. Placing the 1857 Indian uprising within an imperial context reminds us that British power was neither natural nor inevitable, but had to be constructed.

Book Summary:

The Mutiny at the Margins series takes a fresh look at the Revolt of 1857 from a variety of original and unusual perspectives, focusing in particular on neglected socially marginal groups and geographic areas which have hitherto tended to be unrepresented in studies of this cataclysmic event in British imperial and Indian historiography. Military Aspects of the Indian Uprising (Volume 4) deals with how battles were won and lost and how the army re-organised after the revolt. It also touches on the thorny issue of how to define the events of 1857-as a rebellion, a national uprising or a small war of the kind experienced in many colonial states.

Book Summary:

Often overlooked, the student demonstration at Bowling Green State University was the first and most successful 1960s campus protest - and a key point in the transition from 1950s social mores to 1960s activism. What began as a protest against outdated rules about dating and student behaviour quickly turned toward political objectives about civil liberties and ousted the university president. The authors, two of whom were present on campus during the demonstration, tell the story of how what began as dissent against old schoolmarm rules quickly turned into a fully-fledged 1960s crusade, with new issues and tactics. Feminist activists played a leading role, and the uprising succeeded in advancing the civil liberties of women. Drawing on the sociological ideas of Weber, Durkheim, and Marx, this book depicts how young activists broke the 1950s mold, little aware that many of their ideals would be echoed in many important 1960s protests. It is a vivid portrait of how the 1950s became the 1960s in America.

Book Summary:

From March 1, 1966 when the Mizo National Front declared independence, to June 30, 1986 when a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the MNF and the Indian Government, the peace-loving Mizo people were caught in the midst of a devastating war. Records of this twenty-year period are rare, as the very keeping of written accounts was considered a crime against the government. The Mizo Hills was a district in India’s state of Assam and the Assam Legislative Assembly Debates from 1966 to 1972 are one of the few official records available of the period. Members of the Assembly bring to light significant events during the course of the insurgency, including India’s only aerial attack against its own citizens on March 5, 1966 and the re-settlement of eighty percent of the Mizo Hills’ population, reminiscent of South Vietnam’s Agrovilles. The book traces the twenty-year movement through these debates, supplementing them with notes on the course of events gleaned through extensive research leading up to the creation of the state of Mizoram in 1986. The Mizo Peace Accord remains one of the most successful accords in the world and Mizoram one of the most peaceful states in India.
