Perras, with the National Archives of Canada, expands on his doctoral dissertation (U. of Waterloo, 1995) about the American side of the World War II Aleutian campaign. He argues, that while critics' assessment of US battles on Attu and Kiska Island (shown on maps) against the Japanese as fiascos have validity, they overlook the historical context of still-continuing debates over the this North Pacific archipelago's strategic value. Major foci are US military politics, postwar proposals for the area, and Canada's role in Aleutian military affairs from the 1920s to 1943.

Addiction is a stealth predator. Unrecognized, it will grow and flourish. Unchecked, it destroys. Marilea Rabasa grew up in post-WWII Massachusetts in a family that lived comfortably and offered her every advantage. But they were also haunted by closely guarded family secrets. Alcoholism reached back through several generations, and it was not openly discussed. Shame and stigma perpetuated the silence. And Marilea became part of this ongoing tragedy. From an unhappy childhood to a life overseas in the diplomatic service to now, living on an island in Puget Sound, Stepping Stones chronicles Marilea’s experiences, weaving a compelling tale of travel, motherhood, addiction, and heartbreaking loss. The constant thread throughout this story is the many faces and forms of addiction, phantoms that stalk her like an obsessed lover. What, if anything, will free her of the masks she has worn all her life? An inspiring, poignant recovery story, Stepping Stones tells how Marilea took on the demons that plagued her all her life—and defeated them.

Now thoroughly revised--with significant changes in chapters dealing with faith and money and environmental issues--Vallet's inspirational study teaches Christians how to gain a sense of purpose, how to properly use resources, talents, and money, and how to reach out with compassion for the welfare of others and for the planet. This inspirational study takes the images of journey and steward as metaphors for the Christian's life and uses several of Jesus' parables as a springboard to explore various dimensions of Christian stewardship. Besides significant revisions to the text, this second edition of Stepping Stones includes a new epilogue that discusses the mission funding crisis of the church in North American and the changing views on both the church and its mission. Thought-provoking questions and suggestions for further reflection appear at the end of each chapter, and a study guide outlines ways to use the book in small-group setting.

Native Americans and Archaeologists

Legal and economic factors have thrust American archaeology into a period of intellectual and methodological unrest. Issues such as reburial and repatriation, land and resource 'ownership,' and the integration of tradition and science have long divided archaeologists and Native American communities. Both groups recognize the need for a dramatic transformation of the discipline into one that appeals to and serves the greater public. This book tackles these and other issues by elucidating successful strategies for collaboration. It includes detailed discussions of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), enacted in 1990 in effort to legislatively redefine ownership of cultural items. Perspectives range from Native American representatives from tribes throughout the U.S., professional archaeologists and anthropologists working for tribes, federal and state agency representatives, museum specialists, and private archaeology and anthropology consultants. Published in cooperation with the Society for American Archaeology.

The troubles of 1971 to 2001 saw Northern Ireland catapulted into the headlines across the world, yet during the dark years of violence there was an impressive, but much less reported, flourishing of creative energy. In this work a panel of writers comment on the artistic accomplishment of this extraordinary period. Inspired by "Causeway", Michael Longley's powerful collection of essays published in 1971, this volume records the highs and lows of the years 1971 to 2000 of northern theatre, poetry, fiction, visual arts and music, as well as discussing the work of internationally famous local figures like Nobel poet Seamus Heaney and Oscar-winning actors Liam Neeson and Stephen Rea. It celebrates the best in achievement, but also points out what was less successful and suggests how the various arts disciplines might develop in the years immediately ahead.

It was always on the cards that the 'Age of Aquarius' would bring a heightened sense of awareness to humanity - whether we like it or not, and from personal inner work over the years I've no doubt that that the sediment being stirred up as a result of this awareness is causing mass discomfort and a much increased search for answers - answers given here in detail by someone who's spent forty years unwinding the mysteries that are at the back of life. Enter within and have corage to go deeper into yourself - there we will meet as kindred Souls and form part of an ever growing network of light that will, in the not too distant future restore paradise on Earth.
