The British Empire and the Sack of Benin
Paddy Docherty - 2021-12-01
Goodreads Rating
Discover the shocking history of the Benin Bronzes, one of the British Museum's prized possessions. Paddy Docherty's Blood and Bronze exposes the brutal imperial violence behind their plundering during the 1897 British invasion of Benin. With shocking details from archives, Docherty reveals the extent of African resistance and hidden British outrages, including a coverup of grotesque sexual crimes. This definitive account of the destruction of Benin demolishes moral arguments for Britain to keep the Bronzes and makes a passionate case for their repatriation to Nigeria.

DearLife book cover
Rachel Clarke - 2020-01-30
Goodreads Rating
"Dear Life" by Rachel Clarke is a poignant and uplifting memoir about the importance of human connection in palliative medicine. As a specialist in end-of-life care, Clarke brings comfort to those nearing the end of their lives, but when her own father is diagnosed with terminal cancer, she discovers that nothing can prepare you for the pain of losing someone you love. Despite this, she argues that hospices offer more of what matters in life: love, strength, kindness, joy, tenderness, grace, and compassion. This book is a powerful love letter to the people, profession, and preciousness of life.
