Victory over Victory is a meticulous critique of our compulsive love of winning and the arrogance that frequently accompanies it. We crave the trivial but exciting victories of entertainment, the uncertain victories of daily living, and the big-time victories of politics, religion, and salvation. Whether we identify with famous athletes, action heroes in block-buster films and novels, beauty contest winners, lovers whom we’ve “conquered,” predatory quests for wealth, political parties, God and Allah as Celestial Champions, or cults that cater to our longing for enlightenment, our lives are governed by a vision of supremacy. When we look at this compulsion systematically, we find a force that permeates our culture. Other studies have examined isolated topics such as politics and true believers, but this essay aims at being comprehensive. It portrays a panorama of compulsion from the Super Bowl to ultimate Salvation, in which non-stop quests for victory are also growing more hilarious. Prize-winning coonhounds, for example, wear mascara to enhance their sexy style in competitions. This ambitious study questions whether victory can ever be compatible with modesty and searches for alternatives to arrogance in the final chapter. “Victory over Victory is a very powerful piece of social criticism. The flow of argument is crisp, logical, and beautiful.” —Professor Peter Bien, Professor of English Emeritus, Dartmouth College “The empirical richness of this study proves its point beyond a doubt.” —Professor Tom Clarke, Stonehill College

Victory, don't forget, has come out of my innermost self.' Victory was the last of Conrad's novels to be set in the Malay Archipelago. Sub-titled 'An Island Tale', it tells the story of Axel Heyst who, damaged by his dead father's nihilistic philosophy, has retreated from the world of commerce and colonial exploration to live alone on the island of Samburan. But Heyst's solitary existence ends when he rescues an English girl from her rapacious patron and takes her off to his retreat. She in turn recalls him to love and life, until the world breaks in on them once more with tragic consequences. In this love story Conrad created two of his psychologically most complex and compelling characters in a narrative of great erotic power. This new edition uses the English first edition text and has a new chronology and bibliography.

Unabridged (100% Original content) Font adjustments & biography included Illustrated About Victory: By Joseph Conrad Victory (also published as Victory: An Island Tale) is a psychological novel by Joseph Conrad first published in 1915, through which Conrad achieved "popular success." The New York Times, however, called it "an uneven book" and "more open to criticism than most of Mr. Conrad's best work." The novel's "most striking formal characteristic is its shifting narrative and temporal perspective" with the first section from the viewpoint of a sailor, the second from omniscient perspective of Axel Heyst, the third from an interior perspective from Heyst, and the final section. It has been adapted into film a number of times. Through a business misadventure, the European Axel Heyst ends up living on an island in what is now Indonesia, with a Chinese assistant Wang. Heyst visits a nearby island when a female band is playing at a hotel owned by Mr. Schomberg. Schomberg attempts to force himself sexually on one of the band members, Alma, later called Lena. She flees with Heyst back to his island and they become lovers. Schomberg seeks revenge by attempting to frame Heyst for the "murder" of a man who had died of natural causes and later by sending three desperadoes (Pedro, Martin Ricardo and Mr. Jones) to Heyst's island with a lie about treasure hidden on the island. The three die (Wang kills one) but Lena dies as well and Axel is overcome with grief and commits suicide.
Napoleon Bonaparte continues planning for the invasion of England as the Royal Navy patrols the seas. When convoluted political machinations in England lead to the impeachment of the head of the Navy, Commander Thomas Kydd is forced to choose sides.
Amidst a world in global turmoil, Victory, a half Native American woman searches for her identity. Victory's mother is a woman of Scottish nobility, an unknowing mistress to Victory's Native American Air Force Captain father, who does not tell her he is married with a wife and children in the States. Cast out from her family in disgrace, Lady Joy McLeod gives birth to Victory and her twin sister in a night of furious rain in a French convent. Victory's twin sister and mother do not survive the birth, plunging Victory into the traumatic world of an orphan, alone and far from both her birth families. Three years pass, in which Victory is an orphan, separated from The People, as her Native American grandfather calls the Cheyenne tribe. In an attempt to salvage his honor and reputation with his people, Victory's father kidnaps her from the convent and returns her to the Indian reservation where her grandfather lives. Victory returns to American, diagnosed as autistic, yet capable of great talents, powers and abilities. Her Native American Grandfather is the only 'two legged' able to reach her, and nurtures and teaches her in the way of his people. Victory begins training as a medicine woman. Yet she finds that spirituality cannot completely explain her world, yet neither can science. Between these two worlds, the spiritual and the material, she must search for an answer, to her life, and to the future of Earth. Her relationship with her father is difficult and painful. Her search for identity as a woman who is half Native American and half 'wasichu' (white) is full of anguish, and includes encounters with racism and rejection from both societies. Victory has experiences in her life that are so horrific that she doubts whether she can go on, but somehow she transcends the pain of the material world through her inner spiritual journeys. Victory is a profile in courage, and her story speaks for the journey of all women. Issues explored within this story are at once both contemporary and searching. Attention is focused on values such as family, love, loyalty, ethnic identification and cultural history. Yet also interwoven in what is right are themes of continual betrayal, hatred, murder and rage. The reader may feel Victory may not be able to rise once more from the ashes of her experiences, but always, true to her name, she has the courage to return to life and walk once more to a goal and a new life. Romance, passion, and sensual experiences are also a part of this vital woman's life. Her attitude towards love is much like traditional males, and of times contains a double standard. Yet she is not afraid to experience life, even if it means failing and returning again to the world of love. During her lifetime she is married three times but divorce is not within her vocabulary. She experiences the greatest loss of a mother, the loss of children. Yet Victory goes on to celebrate her living children and grandchildren.

This volume contains the last of Churchill’s great speeches from World War II, delivered during the final eight months of the global conflict—and the final period of his time in office. The victory expressed in this volume is mixed. These speeches detail Churchill’s public reactions to the forming of the United Nations, the death of Roosevelt, the dropping of the Atomic Bomb, and, lastly, the election that defeats him. Perhaps most notable is the “Gestapo” speech of 1945, in which Churchill made a controversial comparison between a Socialist government and the Gestapo—an extremely charged word at that time—that many believe cost him his job as Prime Minister. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 “for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” Over a 64-year span, Churchill published over 40 books, many multi-volume definitive accounts of historical events to which he was a witness and participant. All are beautifully written and as accessible and relevant today as when first published. During his fifty-year political career, Churchill served twice as Prime Minister in addition to other prominent positions—including President of the Board of Trade, First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Home Secretary. In the 1930s, Churchill was one of the first to recognize the danger of the rising Nazi power in Germany and to campaign for rearmament in Britain. His leadership and inspired broadcasts and speeches during World War II helped strengthen British resistance to Adolf Hitler—and played an important part in the Allies’ eventual triumph. One of the most inspiring wartime leaders of modern history, Churchill was also an orator, a historian, a journalist, and an artist. All of these aspects of Churchill are fully represented in this collection of his works. ABOUT THE SERIES Even decades later, long after the bloody conflict of World War II has been consigned to history, Sir Winston Churchill’s words to a country at war still have the power to thrill. Arguably the greatest orator of the last hundred years, Churchill was at his best when leading Britain in times of war—sometimes exhorting, sometimes pleading, sometimes energizing, and always inspiring. Rosetta Books offers a complete set of volumes of the wartime speeches for which Churchill was best known, presented in the original formats in which he authorized them for publication. Churchill’s oratory was cited by the Nobel Foundation in granting him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Ranging from the beginning of England’s brave stand against Hitler to the surrender of Japan and its aftermath, they bring a long and turbulent period in world history to vibrant life.
Commander Thomas Kydd is eager to play his part in thwarting Bonaparte's plans for the invasion of England. Joining Admiral Nelson's command, Kydd and his ship soon find themselves at the heart of the action that leads up to the famous clash of the mighty British and French fleets at Trafalgar. Kydd's journey takes him from false sightings of the enemy and dramatic chases across the Atlantic, to the bloody annihilation of the enemy during the actual battle, and the heroic aftermath. This is Kydd's most important adventure so far, and the most thrilling - the description of Trafalgar itself reads as freshly as though it happened yesterday, and Stockwin's trademark rich historical detail and heart-pounding action combine to bring the life the greatest sea battle in history.
Although Joseph Conrad is now regarded by many critics as one of the most important twentieth-century writers, popular acclaim proved hard for the Polish-born writer to achieve during his lifetime. It was Victory, a psychological thriller of sorts, that finally broke through and helped the writer gain the mass readership his writing deserves.
