Born In The Wrong Country is about what the United States of America has neglected to do, things that this government have ignored when it comes to its own people. It deals with the White and the Black situation in America, the poor and other minorities, and of the hunger that faces the people of the United States. Mental hunger and physical hunger of what people want, and what people need are discussed. It doesn't just talk about today, but talks about the African American People of Color in this country, and what this country has done to them. It points out how this government has taken away the spirit of a people, and possibly thrown away gifts, many gifts that could have possibly been given for the whole world to see and benefit from. Born exposes the reality of slavery and the kind of terrorism that went on throughout that slavery, a terrorism which was done so well that it did exactly what terrorism was supposed to do, by sticking with the AAPC through even to today.

A prequel to The Rules of Wolfe 'Engrossing and wonderfully realized' - Publishers Weekly Basing the novel partly on his own ancestors, award winning author Carlos Blake presents the story of the Wolfe family — spanning three generations, centring on two sets of identical twins and the women they love, and ranging from New England to the heart of Mexico before arriving at its powerful climax at the Rio Grande. Begat by an Irish-English pirate in New Hampshire in 1828, the Wolfe family follows its manifest destiny into war-torn Mexico. There, through the connection of a mysterious American named Edward Little, their fortunes intertwine with those of Porfirio Díaz, who will rule the country for more than thirty years before his overthrow by the Revolution of 1910. In the course of those tumultuous chapters in American and Mexican history, as Díaz grows in power, the Wolfes grow rich and forge a violent history of their own, spawning a fearsome legacy that will pursue them to a climactic reckoning at the Río Grande. Country of Bad Wolfes is a page-turning epic about the making of a borderland crime family. It will appeal both to aficionados of family sagas and to fans of hard-knuckled crime novels by the likes of Donald Pollack, Elmore Leonard, James Lee Burke and James Ellroy. -------------------------- 'The book is trademark Blake with rogue heroes, duels, and demons and angels of human nature locked in a violent dance with one another.

This engagingly personal chronicle by poet Gerald Dawe explores the lives and times of leading Irish writers, including W.B. Yeats, Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, Patrick Kavanagh, James Plunkett, John McGahern, Stewart Parker and Leontia Flynn, alongside lesser-known names from the earlier decades of the twentieth century, such as Ethna Carberry, Alice Milligan, Joseph Campbell and George Reavey. The Wrong Country also portrays the changing cultural backgrounds of the author's contemporaries, such as Thomas Kilroy, Derek Mahon, Eavan Boland, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Colm Tóibín, Hugo Hamilton, Sinead Morrissey and Michelle O'Sullivan. Gerald Dawe presents an accessible and jargon-free view of modern Irish literature, filtered perceptively through his own, warmly personal, lens, and raises important questions about cultural belonging, the commercialisation of contemporary writing, and the influence of Irish literary culture in a digital age, to reposition our understanding of Irish writing in a wider context for today's readers.

In our increasingly global world, individuals are highly mobile and interconnected. Politics, policies and technologies foster interconnection amongst and within countries as individuals relocate from one place to another. One key issue facing developed and developing countries is urban overcrowding. In Australia, urban density is one factor prompting institutions and individuals to embrace ‘rural revival’ as a possible solution to urban congestion and rural decline. In the past decade, rural Australia has received heightened publicity and interest as a lifestyle destination encouraged by national decentralization policies to alleviate urban overcrowding, particularly the metropolises Melbourne and Sydney, regional councils’ marketing initiatives and international refugee relocation. Rural communities struggle in contrast with urban counterparts for several, often complex, reasons. The ‘realities’ of rural life are frequently marginalized while marketing campaigns evoke stereotypical imagery of idyllic lifestyles and bucolic pastures to sell dreams of country bliss to fatigued urbanites. This edited e-book is a collection of articles that explores ‘rural realities’ of country life in Australia for global audiences interested in rurality, health and well-being. By transcending disciplinary-specific boundaries, this multi-disciplinary book not only presents contemporary challenges, but also equips readers with evidence-based knowledge to improve resilience in communities and individuals facing key issues such as aging, depression, disability, environmental degradation, limited service delivery and social isolation. Utilizing a variety of social science research methods, each chapter will enhance readers’ insights about rural amenities, geography, identity, culture, health and governance which impact wellbeing and lifestyle satisfaction. Collectively, this book exposes readers to ideas from a dynamic range of experts in the humanities, social and natural sciences to encourage a holistic approach to developing solutions for a complex social world. The content of this volume will interest a wide audience of graduates and undergraduates, researchers, professional practitioners and policymakers involved with non-profit and government organizations, and interested community members.

Ex-spy ‘Belle Boyd’ is retired – more or less. Retired from spying on the Confederacy anyway. Her short-lived marriage to a Union navy boy cast suspicion on those Southern loyalties, so her mid-forties found her unemployed, widowed and disgraced. Until her life-changing job offer from the staunchly Union Pinkerton Detective Agency. When she’s required to assist Abraham Lincoln himself, she has to put any old loyalties firmly aside – for a man she spied against twenty years ago. Lincoln’s friend Gideon Bardsley, colleague and ex-slave, is targeted for assassination after the young inventor made a breakthrough. Fiddlehead, Bardsley’s calculating engine, has proved the world is facing an extraordinary threat. Meaning it's not the time for civil war. Now Bardsley and Fiddlehead are in great danger as forces conspire to keep this potentially unifying secret, the war moving and the money flowing. With spies from both camps gunning for her, can even the notorious Belle Boyd hold the war-hawks at bay? Cherie Priest has been hailed as 'the High Priestess of Steampunk' - and you can see why in this latest wonderfully written adventure.
