Complete Father Brown Collection – $4.99

Posted by nichetouche on December 5, 2006

The Complete Father Brown
by G K Chesterton

From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest runs to earth bandits, traitors, killers. Why is he so successful?

The reason is that after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it.

In the genre of the finely crafted English detective story, Chesterton’s “Father Brown” stories are wholesome and stimulating detective tales surpassed by few others, Chesterton’s protagonist is a rather quiet, unassuming and modest, and makes an unlikely hero – a catholic priest.

Father Brown’s simple manner makes you quick to underestimate him, but the startling flashes of brilliance that spill from beneath his humble exterior soon make you realize that he has a firm grasp on the truth of a situation when you are as yet frustratingly distant from it. His perceptive one-liners make it evident that he has a clear insight into something that you see only as an apparently insoluble paradox.

Chesterton has been called the “prince of paradox”, and the Father Brown stories are a clear testimony of his fondness for paradox. Ultimately it is not just crimes that Brown must solve, but the paradox underlying them. In fact it is the perceptive insight of Father Brown that is needed make apparent contradictions comprehensible by his ruthless logic.

In fact, Chesterton’s conception of Father Brown is itself a paradox – both a cleric and a crime-fighter, a priest and a policeman, a representative of God’s mercy and an instrument of God’s justice, a proclaimer of forgiveness and a seeker of guilt, a listener in the confessional and a questioner in the interrogation.

How a priest could possibly play the role of a detective is explained in the first story, “The Blue Cross”. Brown apprehends the confounded criminal Flambeau and explains that his knowledge of the criminal mind is due in part to what he’s heard at the confessional booth “We can’t help being priests. People come and tell us these things.”

When Flambeau retorts “How in blazes do you know all these horrors?” Chesterton allows his humble priest to attribute his insight into human depravity to his experience as a priest: “Oh, by being a celibate simpleton, I suppose, he said. Has it never struck you that a man who does next to nothing but hear men’s real sins is not likely to be wholly unaware of human evil.”

Father Brown stories have a depth not found in Brown’s compatriot Holmes. In the course of Chesterton’s stories, we are treated to philosophical discussions such as the relationship between faith and reason. We do not merely meet an assortment of cobblers, blacksmiths, magistrates and generals, but atheists, legalists, secularists, pagans, Presbyterians, Puritans, Protestants and Catholics, all with varying and vying affections for superstition, naturalism, rationalism, scepticism, agnosticism, materialism, anarchism, nihilism, or cynicism.

Father Brown’s tongue never fails to produce profound paradoxical gems such as “The point of the pin was that it was pointless.” And: “I never should have thought he would be so illogical as to die in order to avoid death.” It is Brown’s unique perspective that allows him to see what others do not see.

With the finely crafted prose, depth of theological insight, and brilliant combination of perception and paradox, Chesterton has created in Father Brown a noble and enduring character, a worthy successor to Sherlock Holmes and in some respects his equal and superior. The Father Brown stories are unquestionably worthy of their designation as classics.

These are exemplary models of the English crime short story. This compilation contains all the stories from all five of Chesterton’s published Father Brown collections.

Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie Illustrated – $3.99

Posted by nichetouche on December 5, 2006

Illustrated Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie

The losses men encounter during a business life which seriously embarrass them are rarely in their own business, but in enterprises of which the investor is not the master : Andrew Carnegie

Entrepreneur and philanthropist ANDREW CARNEGIE (1835-1919) was born in Scotland and emigrated to America as a teenager. His Carnegie Steel Company launched the steel industry in Pittsburgh, and after its sale to J.P. Morgan, he devoted his life to philanthropic causes. His charitable organizations built more than 2,500 public libraries around the world, and gave away more than $350 million during his lifetime.

This extraordinary autobiography of one of the greatest American success stories is the tale of the nation’s entrepreneurial spirit itself.

Carnegie peppers the book with sage business advice invaluable to any businessman today. He emphasizes the importance of self-improvement, knowing your talents, being kind, and also the importance of public speaking. You will learn many important lessons through personal anecdotes of his life.

The man who made a fortune in steel relates, in a lively and at times even poetic voice, the story of his life, from the vital lessons he learned from his “poor but honest” family about the value of hard work and a generous, liberal philosophy and his early work in telegraph and railroad offices to his investments in oil and steel and the great pleasure he took in his philanthropic causes.

A precursor to Bill Gates and Warren Buffet he is known for having built one of the most powerful and influential corporations in United States history, and, later in his life, giving away most of his riches to fund the establishment of many libraries, schools, and universities in Scotland, America and worldwide.

This editions consists of 30 Photographs of Andrew Carnegie and the various people and places associated with his life.
