Issie and her new found friend, Gwen, find a way to travel back in time to the year 1360. Although being born in 1992, she discovers that her father was born in the 1300’s and is next in line to the throne of England. Issie meets her grandparents for the first time, King Edward III and Queen Philippa. Due to turbulent times, John Fitzalan is in charge of protecting Issie and Gwen from William, the brother to Issie’s father’s, Edward the Black Prince, who wants the throne and will do anything to get it. Issie starts forming an attachment to John and finds herself in love with someone who was born about 1340. Her grandparents want to arrange her marriage to Prince Philip of France to get France to become a vassal kingdom. Enemies want Issie to marry the Prince of France so this will leave John free to marry someone else. When that doesn’t work, Issie is accused of stealing and John is accused of inappropriate behavior with someone else. Court is held and the events unfold.

This book invites readers who consider themselves savvy investors in their long term future to give some serious thought to the lifetime(s) that may come next. The author’s approach is to investigate the essential relationship of the human soul to time. Whether the reader currently believes in one lifetime or many, the relationship of the soul to time will condition whatever comes next on the other side of the portal of death. There are many naïve portrayals and gross misconceptions about what comes next, whether one believes in an eternity in heaven or an indefinite number of reincarnations. This book tries to get beyond many of these limited conceptions. Too many people have only childhood information to work with when thinking about their long term future. Unfortunately, everything you need to know to make savvy investments in your long term future was not taught in kindergarten

In "Ice: a passage through time," Hal Gage documents the soul and essence of ice. Far from a survey project or linear documentation, Gage's photographs dig deeper to an emotional level uncovering a personality and emotion in ice. Although beautiful, fascinating and sometimes awe inspiring, ice is also the canary in the coal mine for changes in our global climate. Gage's work is a metaphor and warning for what we might loose in this quiet crisis developing before our eyes.

Based on a study of fourteen families in which a child had contracted paralytic poliomyelitis. Passage Through Crisis: Polio Victims and Their Families, first published in 1963, was widely praised for its penetrating--and, for its time, innovative--analyses of doctor-patient communications, and for its interpreta-tion of the meaning of physical disability in American society. In his new opening essay, Davis reflects on the enduring sources of this profound problem in human relations as well as on those changes in the culture of American health care that are helping to restructure doctor-patient relations along more open, less authoritarian lines. The emergence of patient self-help groups, the political militancy of the Gay community in regard to AIDS, and the fading of the early post-World War II naive faith in the humanitarian efficacy of science are some of the developments dealt with. A parallel discussion of the importation into medical sociology of such concepts as the reality-structuring power of professional discourse and of the meta-phoric significance of different diseases for different historical eras seeks to relate developments in the culture of health care to sociology's study. Passage Through Crisis retains for today's readers that essential quality that most engaged readers of a quarter century ago: its vivid and probing ethno-graphic account of the impact of serious illness on the family, the difficult processes of adjustment that ensue and, in these connections, the role played (and toll exacted) by American values.

Richard Taylor was born in Charlotte, Michigan on 5 November 1919. He received his A. B. from the University of illinois in 1941, his M. A. from Oberlin College in 1947, and his Ph. D. from Brown University in 1951. He has been William H. P. Faunce Professor of Philosophy at Brown University, Professor of Philosophy (Graduate Faculties) at Columbia University, and Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rochester. He is the author of about fifty articles and of five philosophical books. This volume consists of essays presented to Richard Taylor on the occa sion of his sixtieth birthday. Some of the contributors have been Taylor'S students; some have been his colleagues; and all have been, and continue to be, his admirers. I have made several attempts to articulate what it is I (I would not presume to speak for anyone else) admire about Richard Taylor: (1) There is a particular 'flavor' to Taylor's philosophical writing and con versation that is wholly delightful. Like any other flavor, it can be tasted and enjoyed and remembered but never adequately described. (If there should be someone who has picked up this book who does not know what I mean, I recommend that he read the chapter on 'God' in Taylor's Metaphysics. ) (2) Taylor is a masterful dialectician.

Some preliminary observations must be made concerning the nature and purpose of this study. What I have attempted here is an essay in the metaphysics of science, and not the "philosophy of science. " Rather than concentrating on the details of theory-construction and the for mal structure of scientific systems, I have treated science as an enter prise, a developing process within human experience. I have used such an approach in order to analyze science in its relationship to other human enterprises, such as art and philosophy, and to clarify its unique goals and characteristics. Often the concepts employed in descriptions of scientific methods are conceived too narrowly; by broadening the focus of attention I have attempted to characterize in a fairly general fashion the goals and methods of science. This has led to formulations which may seem at first glance to depart radically from some "well established" distinctions of the philosophy of science. I hope that it will be clear, however, that such formulations arise at a different level of analysis and concern very different problems from those of the logic of science. In particular, I am concerned with the general goals of science. These must not be confused with the narrower principles of method employed in science at any given time.
