The reader feels as if he or she is also stranded on the island, striving with the men in their dilemma.The Japanese version of this book continues to be reprinted, and has garnered hundreds of positive and appreciative reviews.  Now the story is newly available for a much wider audience of readers to enjoy in English.  It conveys a peculiarly compelling and intriguing “Zen” nature.  If you would like to have an adventurous journey of traveling backwards in Time to experience being shipwrecked with comrades on a tiny island, and yet come away from it alive and satisfied and positively influenced by the experience—this book will do it for you.日本人読者の皆様へ翻訳の底本としているのは1943年初版です。新潮社版、またそれをもとにしていると思われる青空文庫版には、年代や人物名などに若干の誤記が見られます。日英照らし合わせてお読みになる場合にはご注意ください。

Ivanhoe A Romance

Ivanhoe /ˈaɪvənˌhoʊ/ is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott, first published in 1819 (all first editions carry the date of 1820, however, it was released at the end of December 1819) in three volumes and subtitled A Romance. At the time it was written it represented a shift by Scott away from fairly realistic novels set in Scotland in the comparatively recent past, to a somewhat fanciful depiction of medieval England. It has proved to be one of the best known and most influential of Scott's novels.Ivanhoe is set in 12th-century England, with colourful descriptions of a tournament, outlaws, a witch trial and divisions between Jews and Christians. It has been credited for increasing interest in romance and medievalism; John Henry Newman claimed Scott "had first turned men's minds in the direction of the Middle Ages", while Carlyle and Ruskin made similar assertions of Scott's overwhelming influence over the revival, based primarily on the publication of this novel. It has also had an important influence on popular perceptions of  Richard the Lionheart, King John, and Robin Hood. Wikipedia.

Loves Me Not: How to Keep Relationships Safe

An essential guide for keeping relationships safe.In 2008, the horrific murder of Sophie Elliott by her former boyfriend and university lecturer, Clayton Weatherston, shocked New Zealand. During the police investigation it became clear Sophie’s murderer was a typical abuser who had a track record of treating partners badly. Sophie’s mother, Lesley Elliott, driven to research domestic and partner abuse, was astonished to find the very characteristics evident in abusive relationships were right there in Sophie’s. Lesley quickly realised that if she and Sophie, ‘through ignorance and naivety’ missed the signs, then so could many others. It became obvious that education was the key; Lesley set up the Sophie Elliott Foundation to raise awareness among all young women, their friends and families to the signs of partner abuse. The Loves Me Not programme was developed by the Sophie Elliott Foundation along with the New Zealand Police and members of the Ministry of Social Development. Its primary aim is to help young people help themselves to keep safe. Loves Me Not includes advice and suggestions on how to identify problems, how to deal with them and where to seek help.Also included is ‘One for the Boys’, a chapter written by well-known clinical psychologist and commentator, Nigel Latta, as well as a chapter written by school guidance counsellor, Gayna McConnell.
