The Chairman of the Vampire Council is dead, and Lilith, the consort of the Unnamed One, and the Unnamed One himself are out for revenge against Damali Richards, the Vampire Huntress, and her lover, Carlos Rivera. A ruthless and carefully planned strategy---one that not even Damali will anticipate---has been developed. There is only one entity who can best Damali, send Carlos packing, and put the Guardian team at mortal risk. This powerful being was once banished into a forsaken land and possesses everything that would bring a Neteru to his or her knees. This time the fight is not so clear-cut, and it is not only Damali's soul in the balance but her body and heart as well.

Choose a tribe. Watch your back. And don’t stop running. Filled with thrilling adventure and romance, The Forsaken is praised by as “a fast-paced novel [that] you’ll get sucked into. You just can’t seem to put [it] down.” As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the US, and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help standing out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to the wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up. The life expectancy of prisoners on the wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and a charismatic warrior named Liam concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway.

From the Great Depression to the Gulags: Hope and Betrayal in Stalin's Russia

Of all the great movements of population to and from the United States, the least heralded is the migration, in the depths of the Depression of the nineteen-thirties, of thousands of men, women and children to Stalin's Russia. Where capitalism had failed them, Communism promised dignity for the working man, racial equality, and honest labour. What in fact awaited them, however, was the most monstrous betrayal. In a remarkable piece of historical investigation that spans seven decades of political change, Tim Tzouliadis follows these thousands from Pittsburgh and Detroit and Los Angeles, as their numbers dwindle on their epic and terrible journey. Through official records, memoirs, newspaper reports and interviews he searches the most closely guarded archive in modern history to reconstruct their story - one of honesty, vitality and idealism brought up against the brutal machinery of repression. His account exposes the self-serving American diplomats who refused their countrymen sanctuary, it analyses international relations and economic causes but also finds space to retrieve individual acts of kindness and self-sacrifice.

Three individuals are about to push it over the edge and trigger events that will lead to a final showdown between ancient forces and the new overlords of the land. Spaeth Dobrin is destined to life as a ritual healer—but as the dhotamar of the tiny, isolated island of Yora, she will be caught in a perpetual bond between herself and the people she has cured. Is it slavery, or is it love? Meanwhile, Harg, the troubled and rebellious veteran, returns to find his home transformed by conquest. And Nathaway, the well-intentioned imperialist, arrives to teach Spaeth’s people “civilization,” only to become an explorer in the strange realm of the Forsakens. These two men will propel Spaeth into a vortex of war, temptation, and—just possibly—freedom.

Much of society disassociates hunger and homelessness with life in America. Yet there are over 700,000 hungry with no place to call home. Even convicted murders and child rapists are sheltered, fed and given free medical attention in U.S. prisons. You can ask a question with one word: Why? And fill a book with the answer. There are a lot of reasons why people become homeless: natural weather disasters, addictions, unemployment, divorce, mental illness, domestic violence and child abuse. While a small percentage of the homeless are able to get back on their feet and become a functional part of society, most become chained so tight by their addictions that they lose all concept of time, place, and reason. Some of the homeless believe that they have no reason to be more than what they are. homeless. My brother Tommy was one of America's homeless alcoholics, and found comfort with the company of fellow broken people. Many of the homeless have a fragile spirit and are perceptive toward one another's unspoken pain. These are people who don't want to remember the past and have no dreams of a future. Many of them hope to quietly die in an alcohol induced sleep, and a large number get their wish. The homeless are: sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, and even decorated war veterans. One thread of truth connects all of the homeless: they are fellow human beings who are in need of help. In my book, "Mercy For The Forsaken" I ferret out the reasons behind Tommy's homelessness and alcoholism and why he chose the company of the down trodden when help from family was only a phone call away. Being homeless shouldn't mean being hopeless.

The coerced displacement of people within the borders of their own countries by armed conflicts, internal strife, and systematic violations of human rights has become a pervasive feature of the post Cold War era. The plight of the displaced poses a challenge that is not only humanitarian but a threat to the security and stability of countries, regions, and, through a chain effect, the international system. This book contains case studies of ten countries that have suffered severe problems of internal displacement: Burundi, Rwanda, Liberia, and the Sudan in Africa; the former Yugoslavia and the Caucasus in Europe; Tajikistan and Sri Lanka in Asia; and Colombia and Peru in the Americas. The contributors are Thomas Greene, Randolph C. Kent, Jennifer McLean, Larry Minear, Liliana Obregón, Amir Pasic, Hiram A. Ruiz, Colin Scott, H.L. Seneviratne, Maria Stavropoulou, and Thomas G. Weiss. Additionally, the contributors and editors offer recommendations for further action.

Mississippi sheriff Quinn Colson attempts to root out small town corruption in this gritty crime thriller in Ace Atkins’ acclaimed New York Times bestselling series. Thirty-six years ago, a nameless black man wandered into Jericho, Mississippi, with nothing but the clothes on his back and a pair of paratrooper boots. Less than two days later, he was accused of rape and murder, hunted down by a self-appointed posse, and lynched. Now evidence has surfaced of his innocence, and county sheriff Quinn Colson sets out not only to identify the stranger’s remains, but to charge those responsible for the lynching. As he starts to uncover old lies and dirty secrets, though, he runs up against fierce opposition from those with the most to lose—and they can play dirty themselves. Soon Colson will find himself accused of terrible crimes, and the worst part is, the accusations just might stick. As the two investigations come to a head, it is anybody’s guess who will prevail—or even come out of it alive.

Residential treatment can be a path to healing or a revolving door. Make the program you're involved with as effective as possible! For a number of years, many mental health professionals, public interest groups, and child advocates have been pressing for the use of increasingly time-limited (short-term) models of residential treatment and psychotherapy for children and adolescents. Yet the children who are most often referred for residential care are clearly more emotionally disturbed than in years past. They have more extensive backgrounds of social failure and often have dysfunctional or barely existent families. The Forsaken Child confronts this dilemma. These essays on the delivery of group care and individual treatment services for young people present an argument for the preservation of thoughtful, humanistic forms of residential treatment. In The Forsaken Child: Essays on Group Care and Individual Therapy, you'll find well-thought-out discussions of: Anna Freud's altruistic devotion to providing group care for the infant and child victims of World War I bombings in London, with descriptions of important parallels between her observations of the young war victims in her care and the experiences of abandoned, neglected, and abused children in American cities today the historical foundations of milieu treatment and an examination of persisting issues the humane concerns of the early founders of residential care vs. the present-day objectivist climate a long-term case study of a young child in residential care highlighting a number of clinical issues which contraindicate the use of either brief therapy techniques or short-term group care how an interactive, social-constructionist treatment approach helped an adolescent boy in residential care achieve psychological growth and a sense of optimism about the future The Forsaken Child will be of significant help to residential facility administrators in longer-range program planning and to social workers and other clinicians who cope with the daily clinical issues that arise in group and individual treatment settings.

The Forsaken Firstborn

A Study of a Recurrent Motif in the Patriarchal Narratives

This provocative book combines literary and historical methods to examine the phenomenon of the 'forsaken firstborn' in Genesis. The dignity of the firstborn sons of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph-Ishmael, Esau, Reuben and Manasseh-is disregarded in the narrative and the rights inherent in their status are taken from them and conferred on a younger brother. One might easily compare this with the motif in many folktales of the youngest son outdoing his elder brothers in cleverness and skill. But unlike the folklore motif, in the book of Genesis the younger brother's success is not due to any courageous deed or heroic feat on his own part. Instead the displacement of the elder by the younger is usually the result of somebody else's initiative and achievement.
