First Martyr of Liberty explores how Crispus Attucks's death in the 1770 Boston Massacre led to his achieving mythic significance in African Americans' struggle to incorporate their experiences and heroes into the mainstream of the American historical narrative. While the other victims of the Massacre have been largely ignored, Attucks is widely celebrated as the first to die in the cause of freedom during the era of the American Revolution. He became a symbolic embodiment of black patriotism and citizenship. This book traces Attucks's career through both history and myth to understand how his public memory has been constructed through commemorations and monuments; institutions and organizations bearing his name; juvenile biographies; works of poetry, drama, and visual arts; popular and academic histories; and school textbooks. There will likely never be a definitive biography of Crispus Attucks since so little evidence exists about the man's actual life. While what can and cannot be known about Attucks is addressed here, the focus is on how he has been remembered--variously as either a hero or a villain--and why at times he has been forgotten by different groups and individuals from the eighteenth century to the present day.

»Die Engel wählten die Themen für den ersten Teil dieses Buches, und sie sagten mir genau, was ich schreiben sollte. Im zweiten Teil stellte ich den Engeln eine Anzahl von Fragen - Fragen, die mir immer wieder von Seminarteilnehmern gestellt wurden, und Fragen, auf die ich selbst eine Antwort suchte. Jedes Kapitel enthält Material, das mich beim Lesen selbst überraschte, da es in den meisten Fällen eine völlig neue Information für mich war. Die Logik der Engel ist verblüffend klar und gleichzeitig erfrischend anders als die des sterblichen Verstandes. Also habe ich als Übermittlerin der himmlischen Botschaften wieder einmal eine Menge gelernt.« Doreen Virtue

Der Grund, warum wir unser Herz so oft verschließen, liegt darin, dass wir nicht wirklich offen für uns selbst sind. Große Teile von uns selbst sind uns so unwillkommen, dass wir jedes Mal davonlaufen, wenn sie auftauchen. Und so schaffen wir es nie, wirklich voll und ganz anwesend zu sein. Dich nur wenn wir bereit sind, voll und ganz zu uns selbst zu stehen und uns selbst niemals im Stich lassen, sind wir in der Lage, auch anderen Menschen beizustehen und ihnen unsere Hilfe mit einem offenen Herzen anzubieten.

Was Francisco Cantú an der amerikanisch-mexikanischen Grenze erlebt, bringt ihn fast um den Verstand. Cantú hat Politik studiert und wollte am eigenen Leib erfahren, was an der Grenze wirklich geschieht. Als Mitglied der United States Border Patrol rettet er Verdurstende aus der Wüste, deportiert aber auch illegale Einwanderer oder erlebt, wie Familien auseinandergerissen werden. In seiner persönlichen Reportage zeigt er, was Grenzen für die Menschen wirklich bedeuten. No Man’s Land mutet wie eine Tragödie an und bildet doch die Realität wahrheitsgetreu ab, unverzerrt, grausam und zutiefst berührend.
