Author: Eamon Kolarity
During Holy Week in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a young boy named Pedro "Peddie" Martinez turns up missing. At Palm Sunday Mass, Father Andy Leary has a sixth sense that a parishioner is involved. When the parishioner comes to confession the next day, Father Andy's suspicions are confirmed. But is the boy's disappearance an abduction for immoral purposes, or something else entirely? To complicate matters, Father Andy is faced with his weakness of the flesh. He is impossibly attracted to the nun who is principal of their parochial school. Even as he gallantly fights his lust, the nature of their relationship comes to a head as he involves her in the search for Peddie. But in finding Peddie, Father Andy also finds himself-his real limitations and his true vocation.

It was April 1, 1970, and Army Green Beret medic Gary Beikirch knew the odds were stacked against their survival.

The Federal Reserve System, which has been Congress’s agent for the control of money since 1913, has a mixed reputation. Its errors have been huge. It was the principal cause of the Great Depression of the 1930s and the inflation of the 1970s, and participated in the massive bailouts of financial institutions at taxpayers' expense during the recent Great Recession. This book is a study of the causes of the Fed’s errors, with lessons for an improved monetary authority, beginning with an examination of the history of central banks, in which it is found that their performance depended on their incentives, as is to be expected of economic agents. An implication of these findings is that the Fed’s failings must be traced to its institutional independence, particularly of the public welfare. Consequently, its policies have been dictated by special interests: financial institutions who desire public support without meaningful regulation, as well as presidents and those portions of Congress desiring growing government financed by inflation. Monetary stability (which used to be thought the primary purpose of central banks) requires responsibility, meaning punishment for failure, instead of a remote and irresponsible (to the public) agency such as the Fed. It requires either private money motivated by profit or Congress disciplined by the electoral system as before 1913. Change involving the least disturbance to the system suggests the latter.
The politics of the body is often highly contested, culturally specific, and controlled, and this book calls our attention to how bodies are included or excluded in the polity. With governments regulating bodies in ways that mark the political boundaries of who is a citizen, worthy of protection and rights, as well as those who transgress socially proscribed norms, the contributors to this volume offer a systematic investigation of both theoretical and empirical account of bodily differences broadly defined. These chapters, diverse in both the populations and the political behaviours examined, as well as the methodological approaches employed, showcase the significance of body politics in a way few edited works in political science currently do. Arguing that the body is an important site to understand power relations, this book will be of interest to those studying the unequal application of rights to women, racial and ethnic minorities, the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities. This book was originally published as a special issue of Politics, Groups, and Identities.

This "how-to" manual teaches a useful skill in psychic sensing, called Directed Intuition. It involves merely shifting your awareness, much like you routinely shift attention to recall a memory. You can use the skill at any time, with eyes open and engaged in activities. The unique training method has proven effective both in classes and self-instruction. The author devised the concept in the mid 1960s after years of developing his own sensing ability by experiment, and by 69 began teaching classes for several years. This updated book (first edition 1970) has abundant examples of remarkable results and swift learning even some within a few minutes. The lessons are a third of the text. The rest discusses expected achievements, mental impressions during training, and applications for the skill in diverse fields, including business, foreign affairs, and relationships. This book is intended for (1) people desiring to enrich their lives with psychic insight, (2) disciplined researchers into psychic phenomena, and (3) investigators of subjects where needed data cannot be obtained by other means.

Names - a story of hospitals, bad treatment, dodgy sex and cheap beer, the story of 2 teenagers arriving at a hospital for men and boys with learning disabilities, then called mental handicap or mental subnormality, in 1975. James has a learning disability and the hospital is seen from his perspective and from that of the staff as he is processed through the hospital machine, experiencing its' pecking orders and hierarchies. Craig is an 18 year old who is leaving home for the first time, to train as a Student Nurse at the hospital. Despite both being teenagers arriving at the same place, the differences are clear. Craig has chosen to be here, James did not. Craig's life revolves around the staff social club, drinking beer and having his first, cringe-worthy sexual encounters. The story of these two teenagers, whose paths collide, highlights some of the issues of institutional care experienced by people with disabilities, James becoming the victim of sexual and physical abuse, from staff and patients.

"One thing is certain," a reviewer in True West Magazine recently said, "as long as there are writers as skillful as Elmer Kelton, Western literature will never die." Few would disagree with the assessment of the man whose peers voted the "Best Western writer of all time" and whose 50 novels form a testament and tribute to the American West. But who is that Texas gentleman with the white Stetson and rimless eyeglasses whose friendly face appears on so many book jackets? Sandhills Boy is Kelton's memoir, a funny and poignant story of "a freckle-faced country boy, green as a gourd, a sheep ready to be sheared," growing up in the wild, dry, sandhills of West Texas. The son of a working cowboy and ranch foreman, Elmer was expected to follow in his father's footsteps but learned at an early age that he had no talents in the cowboy's trade. Buck Kelton called Elmer "Pop," said he was "slow as the seven-year itch," and reluctantly supported his son's decision to become a student at the University of Texas, and, eventually, a journalist and writer. Kelton's life in ranch and oil patch Texas during the Great Depression is told with warm nostalgic humor animated with stories of the cowboys and their wives and kids who gave the time and place its special flavor. He writes with great feeling of his service in WW2 in France, Germany, and Czechoslovakia, and the romantic circumstances in which his life changed in the village of Ebensee, Austria.

A twelve-year-old boy, middle son in a wealthy, politically and culturally prominent San Francisco family, watches his city disappear in the earthquake and fires of 1906. His father him that nothing has been lost that cannot be swiftly and easily replaced. He quotes Virgil: “Nothing unreal is allowed to survive.” The boy turns this stark Stoic philosophical “consolation” into the radical theater practices of the day, in the course of which he involves himself with radical labor struggles: anarchists, Wobblies, socialists of every stripe. He learns that politics is meta-acting, and he and his girlfriend—a Connecticut mill girl who is on the verge of national recognition as a spokesperson for workers—embark on a speaking tour with a Midwestern anti-railroad, pro-farmer group and take their political, philosophical, and artistic ethos to the farthest limits of the real and the unreal, where they find there is no useful distinction between the two.

Drawing on comparative literary studies, postcolonial book history, and multiple, literary, and alternative modernities, this collection approaches the study of alternative literary modernities from the perspective ofcomparative print culture. The term comparative print culture designates a wide range of scholarly practices that discover, examine, document, and/or historicize various printed materials and their reproduction, circulation, and uses across genres, languages, media, and technologies, all within a comparative orientation. This book explores alternative literary modernities mostly by highlighting the distinct ways in which literary and cultural print modernities outside Europe evince the repurposing of European systems and cultures of print and further deconstruct their perceived universality.
