This book explores the terrain of the distance between what is and what should be. It's a healing book in the sense that it examines moments, concrete instances, of individual confrontations with the sacred. It's a harsh book at times, but, above the portraits of a struggle and desperation, a voice can be heard singing hymns of praise. Life, if we can master the art of appreciation, contains innumerable riches.

Former Texas Ranger Arlo Baines didn’t come to the tiny West Texas town of Piedra Springs to cause trouble. After his wife and children were murdered, Arlo just wants to be left alone. Moving from place to place seems to be the only thing that eases the pain of his family’s violent end. But a chance encounter outside a bar forces him to rescue a terrified woman and her children from mysterious attackers. When the woman turns up murdered the next day—her children missing—Arlo becomes the primary suspect in exactly the same type of crime he is trying desperately to forget. Haunted by the fate of his family, and with the police questioning the existence of the dead woman’s children, Arlo decides it’s his duty to find them. The question is, just how deep will he have to sink into the dusty secrets of Piedra Springs to save them and clear his name?

The dramatic desert landscapes of the Big Bend country along the Texas-Mexico border reminded historian Walter Prescott Webb of "an earth-wreck in which a great section of country was shaken down, turned over, blown up, and set on fire." By contrast, naturalist Aldo Leopold considered the region a mountainous paradise in which even the wild Mexican parrots had no greater concern than "whether this new day which creeps slowly over the canyons is bluer or golder than its predecessors, or less so." Whether it impresses people as God's country or as the devil's playground, the Big Bend typically evokes strong responses from almost everyone who lives or visits there. In this anthology of nature writing, Barney Nelson gathers nearly sixty literary perspectives on the landscape and life of the Big Bend region, broadly defined as Trans-Pecos Texas and northern Chihuahua, Mexico. In addition to Leopold and Webb, the collection includes such well-known writers as Edward Abbey, Mary Austin, Roy Bedichek, and Frederick Olmsted, as well as a wide range of voices that includes explorers, trappers, cowboys, ranch wives, curanderos, college presidents, scientists, locals, tourists, historians, avisadores, and waitresses. Following a personal introduction by Barney Nelson, the pieces are grouped thematically to highlight the distinctive ways in which writers have responded to the Big Bend.

In the half-century before Poland's long-awaited political independence in 1918, anxiety surrounding the country's burgeoning sex industry fueled nearly constant public debate. The Devil’s Chain is the first book to examine the world of commercial sex throughout the partitioned Polish territories, uncovering a previously hidden conversation about sexuality, gender propriety, and social class. Keely Stauter-Halsted situates the preoccupation with prostitution in the context of Poland’s struggle for political independence and its difficult transition to modernity. She traces the Poles’ growing anxiety about white slavery, venereal disease, and eugenics by examining the regulation of the female body, the rise of medical authority, and the role of social reformers in addressing the problem of paid sex. Stauter-Halsted argues that the sale of sex was positioned at the juncture of mass and elite cultures, affecting nearly every aspect of urban life and bringing together sharply divergent social classes in what had long been a radically stratified society. She captures the experiences of the impoverished women who turned to the streets and draws a vivid picture of the social milieu that shaped their choices. The Devil’s Chain demonstrates that discussions of prostitution and its attendant disorders—sexual deviancy, alcoholism, child abuse, vagrancy, and other related problems—reflected differing visions for the future of the Polish nation.

The swelling interest in popular music studies has far outpaced the outlets for publication. Country music, with its all-too-familiar stereotypes, has been particularly slow to gain scholarly acceptance. With the Country Music Annual, scholars, students, and even fans now have a outlet for the dissemination of research and ideas. Each volume of this new yearbook is devoted to all aspects of country music and is the only forum for series studies of the subject. Specific topics include old-time music, western swing, bluegrass, honky-tonk music, Cajun, instrumental music, Nashville sound era, new traditionalism, country rock, alternative country, Americana, modern folk, and contemporary Nashville, as well as biographical studies and interdisciplinary approaches to music, geography, gender, class, race, media, and culture. This inaugural edition defines country music in a broad sense and reflects the marvelous complexities of what has often been called a simple cultural form. The articles look at old-time music, Western swing, honky-tonk, Bluegrass, Cajun, country rock, and the many other incarnations country music has taken. Contributors explore country music in Hollywood and Nashville, humor, country's complex relationship with religion, music careers, sound mixing, and teaching country music in the classroom. Analysis of music, lyrics, and aesthetics stand alongside discussions of Minnie Pearl, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, Shania Twain, and many more artists.

'The image I have is a kid on a country lane on a Saturday afternoon herding his family cattle, meaning no harm to anybody and putting one step wrong. It's one thing to die in combat, it's one thing to die defending land, but it's another thing to die tending cattle on a Saturday afternoon and we want a world where that doesn't happen' - Michael Ignatieff During the twentieth century a landmine plague raged across the globe. It began on the battlefields of two world wars, it gathered momentum in Korea and Vietnam and then spread like wildfire throughout the developing world. The Devil's Gardens is the definitive story of the landmine. It is the story of the development and proliferation of a weapon of terror. It is also the story of suffering and devastation, and a worldwide crusade to put an end to the curse of landmines forever. The issues surrounding landmines and their continued use are controversial. Drawing on a wide range of distinguished interviewees and the authors' first-hand experiences in severely mine-affected countries, The Devil's Gardens look at all sides of the landmine story.

Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad faces the most shocking case of its existence, in the extraordinary new historical thriller from the author of the acclaimed national bestsellers The Yard and The Black Country. London, 1890. A small group of the city’s elite, fed up with the murder rate, have made it their business to capture violent criminals and mete out their own terrible brand of retribution.

Amidst the myths and folklore of Tavistock, one tale strikes fear into the hearts of the townspeople above all others: the murders on the Abbot’s Way. One cold winter, many years ago, a young acolyte eager for distraction led a group of fellow novices into stealing their abbot’s wine. Crippled with guilt and fear of discovery, the acolyte committed murder to hide his sins. Legend has it that the devil himself appeared for the acolyte’s soul, and tricked the novices into their deaths upon the Devon moors. In Autumn 1322, it appears that history is repeating, with Abbot Robert discovering an empty wine barrel, and a body found upon the moors. It soon becomes clear that the wine isn’t the only thing missing from the abbey, and the body on the moor isn’t the last. When Baldwin and Simon investigate, they begin to question whether the legends of the past hold the key to the present turmoil.

Webster College: an elite New England campus and a world of learning where creativity and inclusiveness are the presiding principles. Naomi Roth, a feminist scholar, is named to the coveted position of Webster's president. When a student protest materializes, Naomi initially supports the movement, feeling proud and protective of the protesters, her own daughter Hannah among them. But the protest begins to fester, attracting students from other institutions and media. Attention begins to focus on one charismatic student, a Palestinian immigrant named Omar, and both the tension on campus and the essential conflicts in Naomi's personal life begin to overwhelm her until she finds herself facing an impossible and ultimately tragic conflict. The Devil and Webster is shot through with caustic comedy, and yet the Faustian notes are a persistent reminder that the possibility of corruption - personal or institutional - remains our persistent companion, however good our intentions might be.

Government intrusion into our private lives is at an all-time high. With the"Obergefell v Hodges"case unelected judges have made law and overturned the will of the people. Bakers, photographers, and even CEOs are all being told what they can and cannot do. Prayer has been banned from public schools for over fifty years, but now even private restaurants are effectively banned from offering incentives to people who pray. This kind of intrusion by the federal government was never intended by the Founding Fathers and is absolutely outside the bounds granted by the US Constitution. The Founding Fathers themselves said our nation demanded a moral, educated, and principled populace to keep our elected officials in check and to keep our government and culture clean and free of degrading forces, and to maintain its republic roots. Without this, they warned, our country would crumble. Today we see what happens when unchecked, greedy, self-serving utopian politicians get the free run of Washington, DC. We end up with an overreaching federal government whose policies, while wrapped in philanthropic terms, are designed to control and suppress the masses. In"The Devil in DC"veteran journalist Cheryl K. Chumley warns of the progressive-socialist and atheist direction America has taken. In a step-by-step guide on what to do about it, Chumley not only explains the issues at hand but offers solutions to the issues: a crippling welfare and entitlement system that reduces the potential of the citizenry; an education system designed to appeal to the lowest performers rather than help all students rise to a higher standard; a broken immigration system that rewards and encourages illegal immigrants, limits the power of the border states, and makes devalues and endangers US citizens; a Federal Reserve that irresponsibly runs up debt by printing money to artificially prop up our economy (and in turn encourages record-level personal debt); and worst of all career partisan politicians who are more concerned with getting reelected and lining their own pockets than in doing what is right for their constituents. "The Devil in DC"is such an important book to read, explains former governor Mike Huckabee. It] takes the fight of patriotic Americans to an even higher level, appealing to Christians and those of faith to get in the ring, jump in the fight. And what I really like about this book is it then shows them just how to do it. "The Devil in DC"gives more than a dozen different ideas on how to turn back Big Government and in the spirit of what Founding Fathers envisioned reestablish that our rights our God-granted, not government-given."
