Here to help with this major life decision is the only college guide to rank and recommend schools based on their level of douchiness, including illustrated analysis of douchey student affectations, fashions, course offerings, school chants, pickup techniques, extracurricular activities, mascots, and much more. This rigorously researched, stereotypically accurate, gleefully offensive handbook celebrates douchbaggery as a many splendored thing—from yachty to sporty to thoughtfully bearded and beyond—and is sure to spark fits of pique and laughter among high school applicants, current students, and anyone who went to college.

This is Alasdair Barcroft's third book on the subject of aloe vera and he believes the aloe vera topic will run and run as more and more people, both lay people and professional healthcare specialists and therapists alike, begin fully to understand the powerful healing and health-giving properties of this amazing plant. He believes that 'we are still scratching the surface' in terms of aloe vera's vast potential. Aloe vera has been around for over 4,000 years - it has stood the test of time - and it still continues to confound and very often baffle the medical profession and scientific researchers with its complex, silent actions, potent properties and powerful healing benefits. Aloe vera truly is nature's silent healer. Aloe vera has been known for its wide-ranging healing properties for over 4,000 years, but it is only in the last few decades that scientists have really begun both to realise and understand the enormous scope of this amazing plant's actions and benefits. Medical practitioners, vets, dentists, therapists, nutritionists and many others involved in healthcare throughout the world are finally realising that the anecdotal evidence of the powers of this ancient plant that have been handed down through the millennia are as valid and relevant today as they were in places like ancient Egypt, where aloe vera was revered as the 'plant of immortality', or in the ancient Greece of Alexander the Great's time. This book provides the reader, whether lay or a health professional, with an in-depth introduction to one of nature's most potent healing plants. 'Myth, magic or medicine?' is a phrase or a question that has often been asked about aloe vera. This book firmly establishes the facts about aloe vera, defining: its history through the millennia; its botanical pedigree; its track record over the years as a healing plant; its use in studies and scientific trials since 1935; the numerous case histories of people who have benefited from its use, both internally and externally; the many illnesses, ailments and conditions that aloe vera can help manage; its properties, uses and benefits from internal conditions, illnesses and diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), arthritis, candida, colitis, ulcers and Crohn's disease, to external problems, ailments and disorders such as burns, sunburn, acne, eczema and psoriasis; the comments and reports by doctors, dentists, therapists, nutritionists, veterinary surgeons and others; involved in health; the future as more people consider a more balanced and holistic approach to healthcare. This is a detailed and practical book, which gives the reader a unique insight into a healing plant that has stood the test of millennia and continues to surprise professional health specialists across the healing spectrum as they attempt to unlock more and more of its secrets. Aloe vera's true potential as a healer will continue to expand across the globe as more people use it internally or externally, and more doctors and the wider medical fraternity become more receptive to a holistic approach to general health and well-being, and disease and illness prevention, rather than just treatment of the symptoms.

The Columbia Guide to Central African Literature in English Since 1945

Columbia's guides to postwar African literature paint a unique portrait of the continent's rich and diverse literary traditions. This volume examines the rapid rise and growth of modern literature in the three postcolonial nations of Zimbabwe, Malawi, and Zambia. It tracks the multiple political and economic pressures that have shaped Central African writing since the end of World War II and reveals its authors' heroic efforts to keep their literary traditions alive in the face of extreme poverty and AIDS. Adrian Roscoe begins with a list of key political events. Since writers were composing within both colonial and postcolonial contexts, he pays particular attention to the nature of British colonialism, especially theories regarding its provenance and motivation. Roscoe discusses such historical figures as David Livingstone, Cecil Rhodes, and Sir Harry Johnston, as well as modern power players, including Robert Mugabe, Kenneth Kaunda, and Kamuzu Banda. He also addresses efforts to create a literary-historical record from an African perspective, an account that challenges white historiographies in which the colonized was neither agent nor informer. A comprehensive alphabetical guide profiles both established and emerging authors and further illustrates issues raised in the introduction. Roscoe then concludes with a detailed bibliography recommending additional reading and sources. At the close of World War II the people of Central Africa found themselves mired in imperial fatigue and broken promises of freedom. This fueled a desire for liberation and a major surge in literary production, and in this illuminating guide Roscoe details the campaigns for social justice and political integrity, for education and economic empowerment, and for gender equity, participatory democracy, rural development, and environmental care that characterized this exciting period of development.
