Winner of the first Giller Prize for Canadian fiction in 1994, The Book of Secrets is an outstanding historical novel set in East Africa. When Pius Fernandes, a retired schoolteacher living in modern day Dar es Salaam, discovers a diary of a British colonial administrator from 1913, he is drawn into a provocative account of the Asian community of East Africa, and the liaisons, feelings and secrets of its people, over the course of a century. Part generational history, part detective story, part social chronicle, M.G. Vassanji's award-winning novel magnificently conjures setting and period as it explores notions of identity and exile.

Every president has had a unique and complicated relationship with the intelligence community. While some have been coolly distant, even adversarial, others have found their intelligence agencies to be among the most valuable instruments of policy and power. Since John F. Kennedy's presidency, this relationship has been distilled into a personalized daily report: a short summary of what the intelligence apparatus considers the most crucial information for the president to know that day about global threats and opportunities. This top-secret document is known as the President's Daily Brief, or, within national security circles, simply "the Book." Presidents have spent anywhere from a few moments (Richard Nixon) to a healthy part of their day (George W. Bush) consumed by its contents; some (Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush) consider it far and away the most important document they saw on a regular basis while commander in chief. The details of most PDBs are highly classified, and will remain so for many years. But the process by which the intelligence community develops and presents the Book is a fascinating look into the operation of power at the highest levels. David Priess, a former intelligence officer and daily briefer, has interviewed every living president and vice president as well as more than one hundred others intimately involved with the production and delivery of the president's book of secrets. He offers an unprecedented window into the decision making of every president from Kennedy to Obama, with many character-rich stories revealed here for the first time.

Essay from the year 2017 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: In his novel "The Book of Secrets" M.G. Vassanji takes a curious approach at the topic of how history is presented, how it could and should be reconstructed and how it influences characters’ identities and perceptions. Finding out the truth in history is not always easy. Especially in this novel, since the narrative changes between quite a variety of different angles and perspectives and is mainly driven by subjective and personal histories of the characters. This includes a diary, letters, personal experiences and thoughts. The perception of history and the narrative are going to be one focus of this paper. How can truth be extracted from a history which is shaped by subjective and personal opinions and observations? Can there even be simple, linear, historical truth? Another core area of this paper deals with the question of how the characters’ thoughts and actions are being influenced by their personal history, their cultural background and confrontations with a new culture. Are social or cultural superiorities used to an advantage in order to manipulate other people? In addition to that, it will slightly be touched upon the characters’ sense of origin and how living in a new environment and interacting with other people has an impact on their personality. This paper will concentrate on the three main characters namely Corbin, Pipa, and Pius. Focusing on their personal struggles, experiences, desires and their relationship with other characters. Analysing their perspectives will help to identify their true motifs and therefore giving more implications and clues on how to solve some of the secrets. Before the conclusion, the pasts influence on the present will also be slightly touched upon.

"Sophie and Joseph Argenton have survived the impossible...for now. Desperate, they travel to meet an ally at Kensington, a long-abandoned mansion that overlooks a dead town. The house offers a small hope: its original owner had dedicated her life to researching the monster that possesses Elise. Here they hope to find a way to kill the creature without harming their young friend. But Kensington is a dangerous building. Once the carriage leaves, they're trapped inside the collapsing walls and forced to confront the horrors within. Shrouded figures stalk them. Whispers echo through the night. Unmarked graves dot the property. And the dead are not as restful as they seem..."--

In closely examining this rich but little-known source of literature, Eamon reveals that printing technology and popular culture had as great, if not stronger, an impact on early modern science as did the traditional academic disciplines. Medieval interest in the secrets of nature was spurred in part by ancient works such as Pliny's Natural History. As medieval experimenters adapted ancient knowledge to their changing needs, they created their own books of secrets, which expressed the uncritical, empiricist approach of popular culture rather than the subtle argumentation of scholastic science. The crude experimental methodology advanced by the "professors of secrets" became for the "new philosophers" of the seventeenth century a potent ideological weapon in the challenge of natural philosophy.
