Victorian Days in the Park

by K. Kimimela

We talked for an hour, during which time the infield became a museum of modern materiel: at first base was a Bradley Fighting Vehicle; beyond second the helicopter gunship; at third another armored machine; and, at the base of the pitcher's mound, toward home plate, like a low slung and tubed pitching machine on its tripod, rested a grenade launcher over which knelt a Marine hardly nineteen showing a boy hardly seven how to set and release the firing mechanism....

Looking beyond these statistics reveals a host of hidden costs for the ...

The Path of Least Resistance (The Shooting Stars Series Book 2)

by Leah Downing

The deadly actions set in motion by Collin St. Germain during the Gulf War created a catastrophic chain of events, resulting in an IED triggered homeland terrorist attack over a decade later. In 2008, Fort Bliss was targeted by one of its own: Army Captain Burak Yilmaz. When it’s discovered that Collin’s wife has close ties to the Captain, she is thrust into the spotlight of a national investigation that leaves her scorned by the nation. Now, the time has come for her to confess what happened—what really happened with her marriage, her trial, and Captain Yilmaz—to the new love of her life before the couple embarks on a perilous mission to Africa. But, when movie star James Bayer learns the truth about what haunts Lauren St. Germain, will he still want her in his life?...

Red Zone: Five Bloody Years in Baghdad (Blood and Treasure Book 2)

by Oliver Poole

This eyewitness account reveals the truth about Baghdad's Red Zone during the American occupation, and describes the reality of daily life as the city descended into bloody civil war. How do you cheer on your national football team when you're terrified to step outside your front door? What's it like to go to the shops when your biggest fear is being blown up by a suicide bomber?

Goin' Garf! (Memories of the Caribbean Island of San Andres)

by Lawrence Bohme

In 1975, London-born New York-bred adventurer Lawrence Bohme set up his crafts shop on the remote West Indian island of San Andres, a possession of Colombia. With the difference that its people are the English-speaking descendants of Jamaican slaves brought there by the British, before the island was ceded to what was then New Spain, in 1822. Lawrence evokes the islanders' unshakeably "Afro-Victorian" view of the world and themselves, their pungent and often graphic patois harkening back to pre-Industrial England as well as Africa, and their strange dream that the English will one day return to free them from the "panyas", that is, the "Spaniards", who for a century had already become Colombians... Here is the loving but unsentimental "guide book" which Lawrence wrote while living on this ...

BEAR CREEK (SAGE COUNTRY Book 1)

by Dan Arnold

John Everett Sage was a man without a legacy. He had spent his life wandering, working in cow towns and frontier outposts, usually as a law man. He was hoping to re-connect with his family in Wyoming, when a run away horse led him in a new direction, one that would pull all the disparate elements of his life together. John will find his family, only to see them go in search of their own destiny.
In the process, he will see the high country and track killers in the night. He will be reunited with old friends who will help him face times of violence and danger, his personal limitations, political imperatives, and the evil intentions of men whose souls are lost to greed.
Along the way he’ll win the trust of a community, the support of a governor and the love of a woman.

Who are the dominant owners of U.S. public debt? Is it widely held, or concentrated in the hands of a few? Does ownership of public debt give these bondholders power over our government? What do we make of the fact that foreign-owned debt has ballooned to nearly 50 percent today? Until now, we have not had any satisfactory answers to these questions. Public Debt, Inequality, and Power is the first comprehensive historical analysis of public debt ownership in the United States. It reveals that ownership of federal bonds has been increasingly concentrated in the hands of the 1 percent over the last three deca...

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes contemporary accounts*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe history of California is one that witnessed the rise and fall of several nations and peoples. From the first natives to settle the fertile lands to the encroaching foreigners from the south, east, west, and north, the land that eventually became the Golden State received them all.

In the mid-19th century, the battles would culminate with a young republic claiming the land in its endeavor to stretch from sea to shining sea. Given that Americans were still mostly on the East Coast, the early settlers and prospectors who came west ...

Grassroots Politics and Oil Culture in Venezuela: The Revolutionary Petro-State

by Iselin Åsedotter Strønen

This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book presents an ethnographic study of how grassroots activism in Venezuela during the Chávez presidency can be understood in relation to the country's history as a petro-state. Taking the contested relationship between the popular sectors and the Venezuelan state as a point of departure, Iselin Åsedotter Strønen explores how notions such as class, race, state, bureaucracy, popular politics, capitalism, neoliberalism, consumption, oil wealth, and corruption gained salience in the Bolivarian process. A central argument is that the Bolivarian process was an attempt to challenge the practices, ideas, and values inherited from Venezuela's historical development as an oil-producing state. Drawing on rich ethnographic material ...

There were four spindles; one a stick of zigzag lightning with a whorl of cannel coal; one a stick of flash lightning with a whorl of turquoise; a third had a stick of sheet lightning with a whorl of abalone; a rain streamer formed the stick of the fourth, and its whorl was white shell."For anyone interested in weaving, this free ebook is a must.For anyone interested in weaving native American patterns on a hand loom, this book is an ABSOLUTE MUST!Th...
