Francisco   S God

Mercenary Kenneth Scotts is apprehensive about taking on a new job. A former MI6 spy, he has already lived an adventurous life since graduating from the military academy. Two decades of an unusually turbulent existence has taken a toll on his spirit. He yearns for tranquillity. In his late thirties, he is too young to quit, let alone contemplate retirement. Scotts accepts the next job, spurred on by a high pay out if the mission is accomplished. He is tasked to retrieve an ancient religious relic that has been stolen from the Secret Archive of the Vatican City. A missing priest is the prime suspect. Scotts and computer hacker, Ella Pritchard, follow the trail to Costa Rica, Haiti, war-torn Syria, and Spain. During the mission, they discover the true intent of the heist. Can they stop Francisco, the errant priest, from using the ancient relic to awaken a dark force he can barely comprehend?

Plague  Fear  and Politics in San Francisco s Chinatown

When health officials in San Francisco discovered bubonic plague in their city’s Chinatown in 1900, they responded with intrusive, controlling, and arbitrary measures that touched off a sociocultural conflict still relevant today. Guenter B. Risse’s history of an epidemic is the first to incorporate the voices of those living in Chinatown at the time, including the desperately ill Wong Chut King, believed to be the first person infected. Lasting until 1904, the plague in San Francisco's Chinatown reignited racial prejudices, renewed efforts to remove the Chinese from their district, and created new tensions among local, state, and federal public health officials quarreling over the presence of the deadly disease. Risse's rich, nuanced narrative of the event draws from a variety of sources, including Chinese-language reports and accounts. He addresses the ecology of Chinatown, the approaches taken by Chinese and Western medical practitioners, and the effects of quarantine plans on Chinatown and its residents. Risse explains how plague threatened California’s agricultural economy and San Francisco’s leading commercial role with Asia, discusses why it brought on a wave of fear mongering that drove perceptions and intervention efforts, and describes how Chinese residents organized and successfully opposed government quarantines and evacuation plans in federal court. By probing public health interventions in the setting of one of the most visible ethnic communities in United States history, Plague, Fear, and Politics in San Francisco’s Chinatown offers insight into the clash of Eastern and Western cultures in a time of medical emergency.

Revenge of the Naked Princess

On a hot, humid morning in May 1545, a joint conversion brigade of the Portuguese King and the Pope set out to spread Christ's message of love and compassion, but they leave behind a deathly trail of murder and mayhem. Armed with a monstrous cannon and scores of firearms, the brigade raids Princess Darshana Kamya Kathodi's palace in Tana, carrying for her and her people the King's inviolable conversion orderƒ sealed by the Pope's promise of a new heaven. The beautiful, 18-year-old tribal princess fights back with her ace archers' poison arrows. Revenge of the Naked Princess shows how brutal, forced conversions can blur the line between religion and carnage.This historical page-turner by veteran journalist-turned-novelist Oswald Pareira comes after the success of his widely-acclaimed, best-selling thriller The Newsroom Mafia.

Place of Pilgrimage

Drawing from his many diverse and inspiring experiences, Michael Ignatius takes the reader to 1917 Fátima, Portugal in a deeply moving approach, experiencing all the intricacies of the people, places and events of the time. In reflection, he interjects his own lived current day experiences of pilgrimage in an effort to point out that we are all in the midst of a life-long pilgrimage on many levels—if we only take time and learn how to notice. The author’s combining of extensive, yet subtle, scriptural and religious meaning into the mix amplifies his approach as it connects the Fátima story and message to one’s lived faith experience in everyday life.

Still Rising

Janice Santos is living proof that it is always better to get up after falling down. In her inspirational memoir, Janice chronicles a story of unwavering faith, courage, and resilience while detailing how she bravely took on each challenge and obstacle thrown her way and continued to rise above it all, even in the face of death. While growing up in the rural South as a daughter of sharecroppers, Santos reveals a happy childhood filled with love, despite their meager surroundings. As the family traveled to California with hope of a better life, Santos details how she dealt with bullies and embarked on a unique coming-of-age journey that eventually led her to New York on September 10, 2011, without any idea of how much her life would change the next morning. It turns out that being alone in New York during one of the worst events in the history of America was symbolic of a fight that would come years later for Santos. Still Rising chronicles one woman’s journey from the rural South to the California coast, where she summoned strength from within, God, and her experiences in New York on 9/11 as she bravely faced the battle of her life and learned to stand up for what is right.

Death and Dying in New Mexico

In this exploration of how people lived and died in eighteenth- and nineteenth- century New Mexico, Martina Will de Chaparro weaves together the stories of individuals and communities in this cultural crossroads of the American Southwest. The wills and burial registers at the heart of this study provide insights into the variety of ways in which death was understood by New Mexicans living in a period of profound social and political transitions. This volume addresses the model of the good death that settlers and friars brought with them to New Mexico, challenges to the model's application, and the eventual erosion of the ideal. The text also considers the effects of public health legislation that sought to protect the public welfare, as well as responses to these controversial and unpopular reforms. Will discusses both cultural continuity and regional adaptation, examining Spanish-American deathways in New Mexico during the colonial (approximately 1700-1821), Mexican (1821-1848), and early Territorial (1848-1880) periods.
