The question usually asked about Africa is: 'why is it going wrong?' Is the continent still suffering from the ravages of colonialism? Or is it the victim of postcolonial economic exploitation, poor governance and lack of aid? Whatever the answer, increasingly the result is poverty and violence. In Africa: The Politics of Suffering and Smiling Patrick Chabal approaches this question differently by reconsidering the role of theory in African politics. Chabal discusses the limitations of existing political theories of Africa and proposes a different starting point; arguing that political thinking ought to be driven by the need to address the immediacy of everyday life and death. How do people define who they are? Where do they belong? What do they believe? How do they struggle to survive and improve their lives? What is the impact of illness and poverty? In doing so, Chabal proposes a radically different way of looking at politics in Africa and illuminates the ways ordinary people 'suffer and smile'. This is a highly original addition to Zed's groundbreaking World Political Theories series.

There is much unfairness, inequality and suffering in our world. Could some of these situations be the direct result of actions we took in past lives? This book provides a series of spirit communications received through spiritual mediumship indicating that to be true. Spirits in the afterlife reveal reasonable explanations why many seemingly unexplained human conditions, people and many tragic circumstances in our lives were brought about as a consequence of our choices and actions made in past life existences. Also revealed, is that we chose and were aware, before rebirth, what the circumstances of our lives would be. For we returned to earth, out of love: to make amends, for redemption, self-sacrifice in caring for those we love, as well as for the spiritual progress of our soul. Further, we are not alone in our journey throughout our material lives. We have our spirit guides and the spirits of family and friends that help us from the afterlife, always providing inspiration, guidance and consolation. We are never alone in our sorrows! The life stories herein will provide new insight and answers to the whys of our lives, individually and collectively, and the spirits reveal there is a Divine Plan which is one of CONSOLATION, HOPE and UNCONDITONAL LOVE.

The success of Embrace In Love, We Reach Heaven published in June of 2001, bringing logics explanations on “why and why life is like this,” touching the hearts of so many in need of consolation and understanding on the polemics of life, brought me “e- mail” and phone calls from thousands of readers on this subject. The contact by readers gave me more than I needed to finish HOW TO SUFFER HAPPILY. I felt the “other dark side” of misunderstanding on suffering, the suffering that will not stop because it is permanent and even immutable (God will not give you back your daughter or another leg in this life) and the understanding on the present suffering to endure it in being less painful and even positively is a must. I spent thousands of hours reading what religion and cults can offer, listening to hundreds of preaching, hours of meditation and adding all this data to my experience in my 68 years of suffering (physical and emotional) I wrote this book that I know is absolute spiritual inspiration to heal the ones seeking beyond rituals and empty words. This is the century of high technology where we are closer to heaven and farther to each other. This missing link is called love to everyone as preached by Jesus and many others. Jails are springing like mushrooms and wars still ranging in all fronts. God’s warnings are here in natural disaster as part of life just like death, but we must wake from our spiritual ignorance and change our link of suffering to the right one that is love and our suffering will be happy.

Knowing the Suffering of Others

In Knowing the Suffering of Others, legal scholar Austin Sarat brings together essays that address suffering as it relates to the law, highlighting the ways law imagines suffering and how pain and suffering become jurisprudential facts. From fetal imaging to end-of-life decisions, torts to international human rights, domestic violence to torture, and the law of war to victim impact statements, the law is awash in epistemological and ethical problems associated with knowing and imagining suffering. In each of these domains we might ask: How well do legal actors perceive and understand suffering in such varied domains of legal life? What problems of representation and interpretation bedevil efforts to grasp the suffering of others? What historical, political, literary, cultural, and/or theological resources can legal actors and citizens draw on to understand the suffering of others? In Knowing the Suffering of Others, Austin Sarat presents legal scholarship that explores these questions and puts the problem of suffering at the center of thinking about law. The contributors to this volume do not regard pain and suffering as objective facts of a universe remote from law; rather they examine how both are discursively constructed in and by law. They examine how pain and suffering help construct and give meaning to the law as we know it. The authors attend to the various ways suffering appears in law as well as the different forms of suffering that require the law’s attention. Throughout this book law is regarded as a domain in which the meanings of pain and suffering are contested, and constituted, as well as an instrument for inflicting suffering or for providing or refusing its relief. It challenges scholars, lawyers, students, and policymakers to ask how various legal actors and audiences understand the suffering of others. Contributors Montré D. Carodine / Cathy Caruth / Alan L.
