"Arrested as a 'spy' in 1958 and sentenced to 20 years in prison, Bishop James Edward Walsh was the last American and foreign missioner to remain in China. As director of the Catholic Central Bureau in Shanghai, the former Superior General of Maryknoll was placed under house arrest after the Communist take-over. Later he was subjected to a staged trial. In 1970, after serving 12 years in prison, the Communists unexpectedly released the 79-year-old bishop. ... Collected here for the first time are unpublished Walsh writings recalling his consecration as bishop, his prison years and some recent reflections."--Dust jacket back

Kumekucha : Women of Tanzania( Visual )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tanzania's women commonly face the problem of raising their children and providing for them as well; just as commonly, they see their men as problems and burdens. In this program, the women speak out: about the difficulties of their lives, the dilemma they face when their only source of income is brewing beer which is bought by men with the money they ought to be giving their wives as support, the feelings of some women that men are useless to them. What emerges is a society in which there seems to be a total absence of romantic love, sex is hardly an issue, and women find their strength in mutual support
