R. D. O'Leary (1866-1936)
Over the span of forty years, Professor Raphael Dorman O'Leary labored tirelessly to make his students understand the importance of originality and of apt expression in English composition. He especially loved words well chosen and dared his students to put beauty and smoothness and sinew into their sentences. He tried passionately to make them feel the dignity and the majesty of the English language at its best. When he died after a short illness in 1936, his personal effects passed among descendants until finally coming to rest with Dennis O'Leary and his spouse, Margaret, who discovered them in a poor condition while restoring a family house. Amid Professor O'Leary's p...

Bár a népszerű Záróra című műsor keretein belül Veiszer Alinda már nem készít új interjúkat, kíváncsisága, amellyel a körülötte lévő világra és a benne élő alkotó, gondolkodó, érző emberekre figyel, semmit sem változott.

RAB: The Life of R.A. Butler
Richard Austin Butler remains the great enigma of post-war British politics. Independent, indiscreet and never anything but irreverent, Butler commanded the respect of both sides of the Commons and would have been, on several occasions, the people's choice for premier. From his entry into politics in 1929 to his retirement from that arena in 1965, Butler's story is also that of British political life through almost four decades. Scarred by his association with the appeasers of Munich, he won the respect of the nation as the architect of the 1944 Education Act. From the viewpoint of these times of Tory wets and dries, Butler appears the victim of the age that divided gentl...

Rabarbertronen
<b>Ömsint porträtt av en urstark mor</b><br /><br />I senvinterns sökljus far han åter, en förlorad son, till de gator, de hus, de broar som en gång var hans moders jordiska rot. Hon föddes när ångloket första gången tuffade in i Rådhusparken, dog när människan bestigit månen och en trafikled krossat småstadens själ. De över tiden förändrade proportionerna rör sig likt väldiga svänghjul i hans inre&#xa0;- hur hon först betydde allt, sedan inget, därpå något, sedan allt hon kunde och allt han ville.<br />&#xa0;Ömsint, utlämnande och genomskådande porträtterar Bertil Torekull ett kvinnoöde som går åter till hans egen moder, en urstark kvinna med godheten och svagheten som v...

Rabbi Max Heller
This biography of a pioneering Zionist and leader of American Reform Judaism adds significantly to our understanding of American and southern Jewish history.<br /><br />Max Heller was a man of both passionate conviction and inner contradiction. He sought to be at the center of current affairs, not as a spokesperson of centrist opinion, but as an agitator or mediator, constantly struggling to find an acceptable path as he confronted the major issues of the day--racism and Jewish emancipation in eastern Europe, nationalism and nativism, immigration and assimilation. Heller’s life experience provides a distinct vantage point from which to view the complexity of race relation...

Rabbit Stew And A Penny Or Two
Born on a Somerset pea-field in 1941, the second of eight children in a Romani family, Maggie Smith-Bendell has lived through the years of greatest change in the travelling community's long history. As a child, Maggie rode and slept in a horse-drawn wagon, picked hops and flowers, and sat beside her father's campfire on ancient verges, poor but free to roam.

Rabble-Rouser for Peace
To be a rabble-rouser for peace may seem to be a contradiction in terms. And yet it is the perfect description for Desmond Tutu, Nobel laureate and spiritual father of a democratic South Africa. Tutu understood that justice -- a genuine regard for human rights -- is the only real foundation for peace. And so he stirred up trouble, courageously engaging in heated face-to-face confrontations with South Africa's leaders; he stirred up trouble in the streets, leading peaceful demonstrations amid the barely controlled fury of police battalions; he stirred up trouble on the world stage, seeking international disinvestment in the apartheid economy. <br /><br /> Tutu has led one ...
