Hope and Vanquished Reality
Nguyen Xuan Phong, published by ICIS Center for A Science of Hope and Xlibris, 2001

A compelling story of hope with reflections on hope’s ability to influence — and be influenced — by historical events.

From his deep knowledge of Vietnamese culture and traditions, the author weaves a tapestry that presents a perspective that often contrasts with Western perspectives regarding the 25-year conflict called by some The Vietnam War and others The American War in Viet-Nam.  An engrossing story of hope in a person’s life, the book is also an objective contribution to the understanding of a great collective tragedy of the 20 th Century.

Memory Fields
Shlomo Breznitz, published by ICIS Center for A Science of Hope and Xlibris, 2001

A recounting of the author’s devastating experiences upon being placed in a Sisters of Saint Vincent orphanage just hours before his parents were taken to Auschwitz.  He describes overwhelming feelings of isolation and loneliness, and persistent dread on being discovered. Interwoven throughout the book, Professor Breznitz, the psychologist, draws on his history and explores the nature of cruelty and kindness, of stifling fear and outstanding courage, and the ways in which memory shapes our lives.
