Set in the same world as Faith Hunter’s New York Times bestselling Jane Yellowrock novels, the second Soulwood novel tells the story of a woman whose power comes from deep within the earth... Before Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she had no one to rely on, finding strength only in her arcane connection to the dark woods around her. But now she has friends in the newly formed PsyLED team to keep her grounded—even if being part of the agency responsible for policing paranormals comes with dangers of its own.... After training at the PsyLED academy, Nell returns home to her woods to find the land feeling sick and restless. And that sickness is spreading. With the help of her team, under the leadership of agent Rick LaFleur, Nell tries to determine the cause. But nothing can prepare them for the evil that awaits: an entity that feeds on death itself. And it wants more....

In this scathing critique of the reactionary values dominating contemporary America, Milan Zafirovski exposes the 'societal curse' that inflicts this so-called promised land today. Based on a sociological as well as historical analysis, he shows how the triangle of capitalist dictatorship, fundamentalist theocracy and exclusionary democracy perpetually creates the 'New Dark Ages' that defines today's lived reality in North America. This much-needed intervention holds the mirror to a land whose perverted slave-and-master economy leaves no refuge or escape to those lured by the idea of freedom and happiness. Brutally honest and uncompromising, 'Curse in the "Promised Land"?' is a must-read for everyone willing to unmask the destructive conservative ideology that drives America.

A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist describes how Cambodia emerged from the harrowing years when a quarter of its population perished under the Khmer Rouge. A generation after genocide, Cambodia seemed on the surface to have overcome its history--the streets of Phnom Penh were paved; skyscrapers dotted the skyline. But under this façade lies a country still haunted by its years of terror. Although the international community tried to rebuild Cambodia and introduce democracy in the 1990s, in the country remained in the grip of a venal government. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Joel Brinkley learned that almost a half of Cambodianswho lived through the Khmer Rouge era suffered from P.T.S.D.--and had passed their trauma to the next generation. His extensive close-up reporting in Cambodia's Curse illuminates the country, its people, and the deep historical roots of its modern-day behavior.

The Siberian Curse

Can Russia ever become a normal, free-market, democratic society? Why have so many reforms failed since the Soviet Union's collapse? In this highly-original work, Fiona Hill and Clifford Gaddy argue that Russia's geography, history, and monumental mistakes perpetrated by Soviet planners have locked it into a dead-end path to economic ruin. Shattering a number of myths that have long persisted in the West and in Russia, The Siberian Curse explains why Russia's greatest assets––its gigantic size and Siberia's natural resources––are now the source of one its greatest weaknesses. For seventy years, driven by ideological zeal and the imperative to colonize and industrialize its vast frontiers, communist planners forced people to live in Siberia. They did this in true totalitarian fashion by using the GULAG prison system and slave labor to build huge factories and million-person cities to support them. Today, tens of millions of people and thousands of large-scale industrial enterprises languish in the cold and distant places communist planners put them––not where market forces or free choice would have placed them. Russian leaders still believe that an industrialized Siberia is the key to Russia's prosperity. As a result, the country is burdened by the ever-increasing costs of subsidizing economic activity in some of the most forbidding places on the planet. Russia pays a steep price for continuing this folly––it wastes the very resources it needs to recover from the ravages of communism. Hill and Gaddy contend that Russia's future prosperity requires that it finally throw off the shackles of its Soviet past, by shrinking Siberia's cities. Only by facilitating the relocation of population to western Russia, closer to Europe and its markets, can Russia achieve sustainable economic growth. Unfortunately for Russia, there is no historical precedent for shrinking cities on the scale that will be required. Downsizing Siberia will be a costly and wrenching process. But there is no alternative. Russia cannot afford to keep the cities communist planners left for it out in the cold.

"In this book, David Goldenberg seeks to discover how dark-skinned peoples, especially black Africans, were portrayed in the Bible and by those who interpreted the Bible - Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Unprecedented in rigor and breadth, his investigation covers a 1,500-year period, from ancient Israel (around 800 B.C.E.) to the eighth century C.E., after the birth of Islam. By tracing the development of anti-Black sentiment during this time, Goldenberg uncovers views about race, color, and slavery that took shape over the centuries - most centrally, the belief that the biblical Ham and his descendants, the black Africans, had been cursed by God with eternal slavery."--Publisher description.

Again and again, young people return to the question, "Am I the same as other people or am I different?" It's a difficult question to answer. Everyone knows that they're the same as other people in lots of ways yet they suspect that they might also be different. Or they want to be different... Or they accuse other people of being different... Or they get beaten up for being different... This book is about young people trying to find answers, or at least trying to live more comfortably with the question. Using dozens of recognisable vignettes, Luxmoore explores young people's anxieties about ordinariness and extraordinariness, anxieties that affect everything: their behaviour, choices, relationships, happiness. He describes ways of working supportively and imaginatively with young people so that they can begin to find a better balance, enjoying their lives and achieving all sorts of things without losing sight of the fact that - underneath everything and like everyone else - they're ordinary, and there's nothing wrong with that. This original and thought-provoking book will enable professionals in counselling, teaching, youth work and youth justice to support young people struggling with these anxieties and the eternal question, "Am I normal?"

Ezekiel in Context

One of the most perplexing and misunderstood books of the Bible, Ezekiel has left many scholars and exegetes scratching their heads regarding its message, coherency, and interpretation. Brian Peterson's look at the book of Ezekiel as a unified whole set within an exilic context helps explain some of the more difficult symbolic aspects in the book and makes Ezekiel as a whole more intelligible. Drawing on ancient Near Eastern concepts and motifs such as covenant and treaty curses, the various gods that made up the Babylonian pantheon, and the position that Israel held as the people of Yahweh, Peterson enlightens readers by showing that Ezekiel can only be understood in its original context. By placing the book first in its historical context, Peterson demonstrates how the original hearers of its message would have understood it, and how this message can be appreciated and applied by people today as well.

Fraudulent honest beliefs cannily brewed at various philosophic caves of the developed world, geared towards minds slavery, then spewed into ethno-politics of the day and religious bodies, which enabled them hold the world at their mercies, were plainly unveiled. Colonial Conspiracies in Africa, like merciless and unapologetic hot knife while slicing through every butter or cheese created or produced by the world ruling class fibs potions, never respected or feared; just the way, she acting as the only Divine detergent, bleached every dye stain or taint on religious cum political maladies of our day! I am afraid, all the deep secrets in human hearts, which this book opened up and made very easy as well as palatable to swallow, no one truly sincere enough, can contest! This is that philological Murdered Truth about Gihons (Africans) in particular and other oppressed nations, which you must know. This shall set our one-sided historic records straight and stop further deceptive or exploitative symbiotic co-existance amongst human race! Africa is not the dreg of Human wastes, rather the only true Father of entire Human Race! This is Divinely inspired Power packed Epistle to the world at large. Study with reverence! This treatise shall be read and remembered forever! She is a revolutionary masterpiece!

Corruption in Nigeria as it is in other nations facing the humiliating challenges of its evil is a topical burning issue. Aside its dysfunctionality to any developmental process, its associative moral odium has particularly compounded Nigeria's image problem both domestically and internationally. Predictably, this has elicited profound intellectual discourse of the corruption problematic. "The Weeping Child" is a book whose critical intervention is anchored on theological insights and thus represents a methodological departure from currents of analysis rooted on secular exposition on the subject matter.

I n Africa: The Glory, the Curse, the Remedy; the author Anthony Agbo in a spectacular and inspirational detail researched the bible and rare ancient authorities to establish that God through the mouths of His Prophets, pronounced broad and far reaching curses on Africa and Africans, the result of which put the continent and her people in the negative side of all indices of human fortune, growth and development.
