By telling his own story in Ceremony of Innocence from the setting of a Japanese Maple Garden at Sandy Springs, a rural community in transformation from a tobacco economy to one of vineyards and nursery crops, Roger Sharpe addresses what society owes its youngest generation, especially with respect to a humanities education, i.e. an education for freedom. He expresses a genuine and well-informed concern for the influence of political and religious extremists' attacks on public education, its consequences for children of poor and working class families, and long-term implications for democratic government. Proposing any imaginative solution that argues boldly for reconciliation among people of good will in American society before public education's role in a democracy be enhanced has required an extraordinary range of cross-cultural experiences and multidisciplinary studies. Roger Sharpe discusses the best of his learning from imminent scholars and practitioners, and from his own research, work and reflective observation in fields of criminal justice, education, history, politics, government, civil rights, religion, the arts and sciences, and the sociology of community problem-solving. Advanced studies at. Harvard's Graduate School of Education and the John F. Kennedy School of Government, for example, afforded him the luxury of reading the history of the politics of American education as very few others have been given. In Ceremony of Innocence Roger Sharpe proposes creation of an institute for training small group leaders who would welcome dialogue among participants, invite reconciliation, and encourage the rebuilding of American communities across economic and social class lines.

Brett Dalton, Alpha of Hudson River, isolated himself from his pack mates after one betrayed him. The once, easygoing Alpha has become taciturn, remote and unforgiving. His pack worries for him, but they too have suffered a devastating blow. When several members leave to join Three Rivers, the pack faces the threat of dissolution until Brett's best friend and Lone Wolf, Luc Danes returns to Hudson River accompanied by a beautiful young human—or is she? Something about the woman consumes Brett. Has Luc come home to help or to take the pack from Brett? Colby Jensen wrapped up thousands of hours of community service working at the hospital in Maine when an injured Luc Danes rolled through the door. The impossible patient drove the nurses crazy, but when Danes offered her money no strings attached to drive him to New York, she agreed. The last thing she expected was to arrive in the small Westchester County town and to meet the craziest collection of residents—especially the devastatingly sexy Brett Dalton. Part of her wants to hit the road, the rest wants to make him smile and he keeps making excuses for her to stay. Then she sees the wolves...and is exposed to a world she can barely imagine. When Brett discovers a secret about her, nothing will be the same again. Now she will find herself torn between a world she isn't sure she can understand and the man who has taken her heart hostage...

Stella, first published in 1859, is an imaginative retelling of Haiti’s fight for independence from slavery and French colonialism. Set during the years of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804), Stella tells the story of two brothers, Romulus and Remus, who help transform their homeland from the French colony of Saint-Domingue to the independent republic of Haiti. Inspired by the sacrifice of their African mother Marie and Stella, the spirit of Liberty, Romulus and Remus must learn to work together to found a new country based on the principles of freedom and equality. This new translation and critical edition of Émeric Bergeaud’s allegorical novel makes Stella available to English-speaking audiences for the first time. Considered the first novel written by a Haitian, Stella tells of the devastation and deprivation that colonialism and slavery wrought upon Bergeaud’s homeland. Unique among nineteenth-century accounts, Stella gives a pro-Haitian version of the Haitian Revolution, a bloody but just struggle that emancipated a people, and it charges future generations with remembering the sacrifices and glory of their victory. Bergeaud's novel demonstrates that the Haitians—not the French—are the true inheritors of the French Revolution, and that Haiti is the realization of its republican ideals. At a time in which Haitian Studies is becoming increasingly important within the English-speaking world, this edition calls attention to the rich though under-examined world of nineteenth-century Haiti.
