How can men be brought to look steadily on the face of battle? Tenochtitlán, the great city of the Aztecs, was the creation of war, and war was its dynamic. In the title work of this compelling collection of essays, Inga Clendinnen reconstructs the sequence of experiences through which young Aztec warriors were brought to embrace their duty to their people, to their city, and to the forces that moved the world and the heavens. Subsequent essays explore the survival of Yucatec Maya culture in the face of Spanish conquest and colonisation, the insidious corruption of an austere ideology translated into dangerously novel circumstances, and the multiple paths to the sacred constructed by 'defeated' populations in sixteenth-century Mexico. The collection ends with Clendinnen's transition to the colonial history of her own country: a close and loving reading of the 1841 expedition journal of George Augustus Robinson, appointed 'Protector of Aborigines' in the Port Philip District of Australia.

What can the call to discipleship, the adherence to the word of Jesus, mean today to the businessman, the soldier, the laborer, or the aristocrat? What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? Drawing on the Sermon on the Mount, Dietrich Bonhoeffer answers these timeless questions by providing a seminal reading of the dichotomy between "cheap grace" and "costly grace."

When policeman Allan Sparkes was awarded a Cross of Valour for rescuing a young boy from a flooded drain, he had no idea that the aftermath would lead to a diagnosis of chronic post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Twenty years of police work - a career he'd loved - had taken their toll. He'd already seen two workmates die on the job. After being hailed a hero, Allan hit rock bottom. This is one man's story of recovery from debilitating mental illness, and it's one many men and their partners will be inspired by. After leaving the police force, Alan floundered between careers, trying to work out who he was. He was angry about what had happened to him, and his family suffered. But he chipped away at his recovery, working through combinations of medication and therapy. Allan's official courageous act was sixteen years ago but his true bravery has been facing up to his problems and then doing something about them. His wife, Deb, and their two daughters have stood by him through thick and thin. One of their great family adventures has been sailing from London back to Coffs Harbour in 2010 - with very little sailing experience. For Allan, this was a great achievement, and the culmination of his years of recovery. From Allan's story, we can learn how to accept change and look for the opportunities that it can present to us. His message is that success is never final, failure is never fatal and it's real courage that counts in the end.
