From these few fragments, the author pieces together the world view of a segment of a vanished civilization. The prices looked random — suggesting they were set by a computer.
A second question arose as well, can there be Truth if life is dream-life. For example, are there situations among West Indians in Central America where ethnicity takes precedence over class, and if so, what does this tell us about Creole society in general.
Aviation History is a collection of significant events in aviation accented by the people who made it happen and correlated with world affairs. Overall, a detailed story of the advancement of aviation is shown in readable and entertaining style.
The chapters on Belize are much stronger and informative. Once again, the first chapter in this section offers a general overview which is based exclusively on secondary sources printed in English.
Aviation History delivers an entertaining account and perspective on international aviation history. The two chapters that follow are more focused and offer well-researched insights into British Caribbean society during the transitional period after emancipation.
These problems are only a minor distraction to the story being told. The author looks out from Belize, but fails to take account of the West Indian communities in neighbouring countries.
If this was so, then the question arose of whether anything was worth doing. The first section establishes the author's approach to the region's history by examining the concept of Creole society as it is understood in the West Indies.
The book is a collection of articles by a sociologist who has made a career of the study Caribbean society and he makes an effort to expand his research beyond Belize to the Miskito Coast, Central America and the British West Indies. Bolland argues that in addition to understanding Caribbean cultures as being a blend of African and other influences, they must also be viewed in dialectical terms.
Such an omission might be expected, but the book's title does promise to include Central America and the expectation is that Bolland would venture beyond the confines of the only English-speaking country in the region.
This format spotlights the key phases of aviation development. In this situation, the author provides good material and content, which is hampered by poor organization. And while it might have been more difficult to deconstruct, one can easily see how even more bizarre things could happen when more than two sellers are in the game.
The book, published inis out of print. On a flight in February he recounts the following in a letter to his mother. Why were they doing this, and how long would it go on before they noticed. While editing errors and organizational incongruities plague some of the latter chapters, many of the shortcomings of this first edition will likely be alleviated by later editions.
These subjects can be better covered by creating another chapter or by parceling them into both earlier and later sections. If this was so, then the question arose of whether anything was worth doing.
All chapters are composed of several defining parts that maintain a sense of continuity throughout the volume. Here Bolland's scholarship is focused on the topics he is most comfortable with. He uses translations of the original texts liberally to illustrate his contentions, thereby providing a balanced, well-documented work whose thesis could be arrived at by others through the use of the texts supplied.
While the chapters create neatly parceled packages, certain areas seem forced to conform to the ten-chapter plan. Browse Subjects. Click on a Subject Area link below to view books in that area and sort by title, author, format, date published, or price.
