An amnesiac struggles to conform in a surveillance society where the government keeps a Watched list of its own citizens. "Fueled by a brilliantly nebulous backdrop, this briskly paced, action-packed novel is undeniably a page-turner of the highest order... A deeply allegorical and powerfully thought-provoking dystopian must-read." - Kirkus Reviews Seven wakes in a forest outside the capital of a nation he doesn't recognize. When he enters the city, he discovers a surveillance society with no separation between Church and State. Those who rebel are called Heretics and face execution. Seven’s blank-slate perspective lets him see through the government's propaganda, but attracts the eyes of the Guard. The debut novel by Adam Bender exposes a current political issue in an exciting science fiction adventure, carrying on the tradition of dystopian classics 1984 by George Orwell and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, as well as more recent blockbuster novels like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. "The dialog was excellent and the situations seemed driven by curiosity, which is a great way to pull you into an adventure. The detail of the forest and every part of the book helped me visualize the world and kept me submersed in the story. The author captures the imagination of the reader creating an addicting story." -- Readers Favorite "There's action, romance, and social commentary woven into a brilliant story with an amazing plot twist near the end." -- The American Chronicle

Never before has so much been known about so many. CCTV cameras, TSA scanners, NSA databases, big data marketers, predator drones, "stop and frisk" tactics, Facebook algorithms, hidden spyware, and even old-fashioned nosy neighbors—surveillance has become so ubiquitous that we take its presence for granted. While many types of surveillance are pitched as ways to make us safer, almost no one has examined the unintended consequences of living under constant scrutiny and how it changes the way we think and feel about the world. In Under Surveillance, Randolph Lewis offers a highly original look at the emotional, ethical, and aesthetic challenges of living with surveillance in America since 9/11. Taking a broad and humanistic approach, Lewis explores the growth of surveillance in surprising places, such as childhood and nature. He traces the rise of businesses designed to provide surveillance and security, including one that caters to the Bible Belt's houses of worship. And he peers into the dark side of playful surveillance, such as eBay's online guide to "Fun with Surveillance Gadgets." A worried but ultimately genial guide to this landscape, Lewis helps us see the hidden costs of living in a "control society" in which surveillance is deemed essential to governance and business alike. Written accessibly for a general audience, Under Surveillance prompts us to think deeply about what Lewis calls "the soft tissue damage" inflicted by the culture of surveillance.

"Faith or Gullibility?" was originally written in answer to the author's many friends who asked why he was no longer attending church but, as time passed and his studies revealed more and more anomalies in religious beliefs around the world, it became very obvious that religious deception was rampant in all doctrines. This was nowhere more obvious that in the political environments in which those doctrines were originally conceived where necessity demanded some sort of unified stance by different groups of people. Much more than today, where technology can provide answers, in past centuries, naturally gifted leaders needed convincing stories to persuade the masses to act in harmony to achieve the best outcomes and so those people were, in that environment, lauded as "prophets" and even credited with what became known as "divine inspiration" although, in actual fact, their leading was nothing more than intelligent use of their own intellects. Nowhere was this more evident than in cases where their prophesies directly contradicted the laws of physics under the name of "miracles." A principal problem with this was that, when those so-called prophets expounded their ideas, scientific knowledge was almost non-existent so that rank-and-file people readily accepted them and passed them down from generation to generation - often by word-of-mouth because illiteracy was far more prevalent that it is in modern developed countries. However, with increased knowledge, human wisdom (the sagacious application of knowledge) has increased exponentially beyond all reckoning amongst open-minded people of all religions to the point where it is no longer possible to justify those outdated beliefs when they are rationalised against the immutable laws of physics. This is particularly so when one considers that the entire universe (and, in fact, many universes) were all "made" without a single physical law being broken. As studies become more and more logical, it become more and more apparent that the main reason for religious beliefs (whatever they may be) is insecurity where human nature cannot accept that life is a finite thing. People cling tenaciously to any doctrine that promises any sort of immortality whether it makes any sense or not and so the purpose of this book increasingly became changed from a mere answer to personal questions to an in-depth study of religious mythology and deception.

Sin and the Church: Perspectives and Principles for Powerful Christian Living is a timely message for today. This book is born out of Crystal Scott's own personal Christian experience and journey, and is a reflection of God's grace, patience, and providence; she discloses that while forever a work-in-progress, she has received revelation and understanding through her relationship with God that affords her the opportunity to enlighten others as she has been enlightened. WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW CAN HURT...! As related to the issue of Sin and the Church, I consider this more than a mere cliché: what you don't know can indeed hurt you; and this hurt is more and more apparent in the Church, which is the body of Christ (His believers and followers). There is a rapid increase of spiritual decline in the Church that is quite alarming and its impact is far-reaching. All too often there seems to be very little difference between Church people and those who do not claim to be followers of Christ. I contend, without apology, that there is an expectation of the Church that God has, which is not being carried out as it should be. In the face of what seems gloom and doom for the Church, God raises a word of enlightenment and encouragement. God knows there are some who are innocently led astray by erroneous doctrine and confused, and He cares. He also cares about those who innocently or deceptively lead others astray and He offers grace, forgiveness, and restoration to the repentant heart. Included in this book are the following: * True Christian Doctrine * Lifestyles that are not indicative of Christianity and holiness * Essential keys for powerful Christian living * Statistical Data * Personal testimonies and interviews * and much more SIN and the CHURCH: PERSPECTIVES and PRINCIPLES for POWERFUL CHRISTIAN LIVING...GOOD NEWS in confusing and troubled times!

George Kateb’s writings have been innovatory in exploring the fundamental quandary of how modern democracy—sovereignty vested in the many—might nevertheless protect, respect, promote, even celebrate the singular, albeit ordinary individual. His essays, often leading to unexpected results, have focused on many inter-related topics: rights, representation, constitutionalism, war, evil, extinction, punishment, privacy, patriotism, and more. This book focuses in particular on his thought in three key areas: Dignity These essays exhibit the breadth and complexity of Kateb’s notion of dignity and outline some implications for political theory. Rather than a solely moral approach to the theory of human rights, he elaborates a human-dignity rationale for the very worth of the human species Morality Here Kateb challenges the position that moral considerations are often too demanding to have a place in the rough-and-tumble of modern politics and political analysis. Rejecting common justifications for the propriety of punishment, he insists that state-based punishment is a perplexing moral problem that cannot be allayed by repairing to theories of state legitimacy. Individuality These essays gather some of Kateb’s rejoinders and correctives to common conceptions and customary critiques of the theory of democratic individuality. He explains that Locke’s hesitations and religious backtracking are instructive, perhaps as precursors for the ways in which vestigial beliefs can still cloud moral reasoning.

Category: Performing Arts
Stanislavski’s ‘system’ has dominated actor-training in the West since his writings were first translated into English in the 1920s and 30s. His systematic attempt to outline a psycho-physical technique for acting single-handedly revolutionized standards of acting in the theatre. Until now, readers and students have had to contend with inaccurate, misleading and difficult-to-read English-language versions. Some of the mistranslations have resulted in profound distortions in the way his system has been interpreted and taught. At last, Jean Benedetti has succeeded in translating Stanislavski’s huge manual into a lively, fascinating and accurate text in English. He has remained faithful to the author's original intentions, putting the two books previously known as An Actor Prepares and Building A Character back together into one volume, and in a colloquial and readable style for today's actors. The result is a major contribution to the theatre, and a service to one of the great innovators of the twentieth century.

A firsthand account of living and surviving in a haunted house. It was during the 1960's, lasting about three long years, beginning when I was 9 years old. My recently widowed mother was a sensitive and because she understood what was happening, was able to keep us safe. There really are things that some would call demons. There are other entities as well, not always hostile. Sometimes seen, sometimes heard. Sometimes doing more than that. They don't interact the same with everyone. I'll show you some of the things they do, how they can affect you as they did me and my family. Why they do what they do, I don't know. It can just be bumps in the night, or they can drive you into depression or insanity. They can make you sick and they can physically hurt you, or worse. Understanding what is going on can be the key to survival. My book doesn't have all the answers, but it may provide insight for the thoughtful reader. It is written in the hope that it will be of some use to someone who needs it.
