1984 By George Orwell

KShs1,495.00

Regarded as a great instance of twentieth century English Literature, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was first published in the summer of 1949, and set in Oceania—one of the three intercontinental superstates.

In this novel, Orwell presents a powerful critique of the times through the fictional global war among the super powers of Oceania that had divided the whole world. Orwell creates a convincing and haunting imaginary world steeped into political ravages and dis-organization. His masterful critique of the political structures of the times comes out through the life of Winston Smith, a man caught in the web of a dystopian future, and his covert affair with Julia, a woman he meets during his service at a Government post.

Brilliantly woven with a genial Orwellian spark, this novel is a classic satirical take on the political and social structures of all times.

  • JM Kariuki The history of any society is simultaneously the story of that society, and that of the activities of the principal actors within the society in different epochs. As the society moulds the lives and destinies of the individuals within it, some of the individuals, in their own way, contribute to the moulding of that society. Such then are the individuals who leave their footsteps on the sands of time.

    The series Makers of Kenya’s History was conceived with a view to telling the stories of those sons and daughters of Kenya who have made an outstanding contribution to the unfolding of her history. Although the stories have been cast in the traditional historical mould, care has been taken to carefully step down the narrative so as to appeal more readily to the curious individuals who have been active on the Kenyan stage, in different was of life.

    This particular volume focuses on the life of one of independent kenya’s most flamboyant politicians: Josiah Mwangi Kariuki, popularly known as JM. It is a life full of nationalist agitation, fight for the rights of the poor and landless, and determination to fight neo-colonialism. JM was modest and philanthropic up to the time he was assassinated in March 1975.

    Oburu Oginga: In the Shadow of my Father by Oburu Oginga

    EALA Member of Parliament Oburu Odinga on Thursday launched his autobiography titled ‘In the Shadow of my Father’ that details the family life, career, and political pursuits of the Oginga family and Kenya’s history through his eyes.

    The launch ceremony, held in Nairobi, was graced by a number of political bigwigs and high profile industry shapers, key among them were ODM Leader Raila Odinga, Royal Media Services Chairman SK Macharia, and lawyer James Orengo.

    While making his remarks, Oburu said he was surprised by how many people were looking forward to the launch of his autobiography, based on the turnout at the event.

    “I also want to express my gratitude particularly because of the enthusiasm I saw everyone who came here had about this book I did not know when I was writing that this book would draw a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of interest the way it has done,” Oburu said.

    On his part Raila congratulated his brother for his accomplishment, insisting that the book will resonate well with readers just like other works penned by great African authors.

    “Not yet Uhuru (Jaramogi Odinga), The tales of Freedom (John Okri) and Now Oburu’s Biography.”
    Orengo also underscored that the book will have a huge cultural and social impact on the history, culture, and the people of Kenya.

  • Riding On The Prophetic Wings

    Every time failure is pervading the earth, God sends human agents called prophets as instruments of change to success. Prophets are God’s agents for man’s fulfilment. Heaven honours the words they speak; God backs up the thoughts of their heart.
    During times of tension, God releases these agents on earth for the preservation of the saints.
    Joseph was sent to Egypt to preserve God’s people; Elijah was sent to the widow of Zarephath to preserve her. Elisha was sent to a prophet’s widow in 2 Kings 4 to rescue her from shame and humiliation.

    God is always working to reach man through man.

    For instance, He desired the salvation of all men but there was no way He could touch men without a man, so He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus. The Son, being God, could not come as God, so He took it upon Himself to come as man ’ just so He could touch man.
    In Ezekiel 22:30, God said,
    And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
    God is always in search of a man to use to reach men, someone to bridge the gap between Himself and others. He worked through Elijah, Paul, Peter, James etc. And Jesus said, ’Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest’ (Matt. 9:38).
    If God could do the work without labourers, He would have come Himself. But the fact still remains: God cannot reach man without man!
    Friend, God has not changed, He is still working by the hands of men today. He is still delivering men, liberating captives, opening the eyes of the blind, raising the dead, and blessing people; and the agents He is using are prophets.
    I would like you to know that God called me and ordained me as a prophet to the nations.
    On October 4, 1981, I was before the Lord in Jos, a city in Nigeria, and I wrote a letter to my wife explaining a few things the Lord was saying to me. I wrote there: ’I speak from my office as a prophet, that we matter to this generation by divine election.’

  • Have you ever…

    Invested time in something that, with hindsight, just wasn’t worth it?
    Overpaid in an eBay auction?
    Continued doing something you knew was bad for you?
    Sold stocks too late, or too early?
    Taken credit for the success, but blamed the failure on external circumstances?
    Backed the wrong horse?
    These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day to day thinking. But by knowing what they are and how to spot them, we can avoid them and make better choices whether dealing with a personal problem or a business negotiation trying to save money or make money working out what we do or don’t want in life, and how best to get it.

  • Who were you before the world told you who to be?

    Part inspiration, part memoir, Untamed explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us. From the beloved New York Times bestselling author, speaker and activist Glennon Doyle.

    For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There. She. Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high but soon she realised they had come to her from within. This was the voice she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions and social conditioning. Glennon decided to let go of the world’s expectations of her and reclaim her true untamed self.

    Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanising wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is also the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honour our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts.

  • Bill Gates: In His Own Words (In Their Own Words) by Lisa Rogak

    Get inside the head of one of the most important leaders of our time with this collection of quotes from—global business icon and philanthropist Bill Gates, the co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft.

    After founding Microsoft in 1975, Bill Gates took the software industry by storm. Today, Microsoft has become one of the largest technology companies in the world—boasting a market capitalization of more than $1.6 trillion. From the Windows operating system to Microsoft Office Suite, Gates and his team forever changed the way people use computers—and ultimately planted the seeds of a global technology revolution in the process.

    Gates has long been ranked as one of the world’s wealthiest men—which gave him a name recognition far greater than that of most CEOs—and businesspeople of all stripes have looked to him as a role model, using his words and business strategies to help create, inspire, and grow their own companies. After he stopped running Microsoft’s day-to-day operations in 2008 to devote himself full-time to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a kinder, gentler Gates began to emerge. In stark contrast to the implacable reputation Gates earned as a CEO, as a philanthropist, Gates has helped to change the lives of millions of people worldwide. In technology, in business, and now, in philanthropy, Gates has proven himself to be one of the most influential people of our time.

    Bill Gates’s second act is no less compelling than his first.

    This collection of quotes provides an inside look into the inner workings of one of the most revered, and occasionally controversial, business icons of the past four decades. And whether you’re interested in his personal life or looking for inspiration to drive you forward in your own business endeavors, Bill Gates: In His Own Words has much to offer. As the tech giants who distinguished the turn of the 21st century shape public life in ways that outstrip the previous century’s titans of industry, we look to figures like Gates for inspiration. Now updated, expanded, and redesigned since its original publication in 2012 as Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates In His Own Words, you can find Gates’s most inspirational, thought-provoking quotes in one place.
