In 1997, Sally Armstrong, then editor-in-chief of Homemaker's magazine, wrote an article about the women of Afghanistan and their lives under the misogynist Taliban regime. More than 9000 letters poured in from readers demanding that something be done to get these women out of bondage. Recently named as UNICEF's special representative to Afghanistan, Armstrong has an insider's view of the terror, abuse and misogyny the women and girls of Afghanistan have faced for more than two decades of civil war and, in particular, when the Taliban took over. Veiled Threat begins on September 27, 1996, the day the Taliban seized power and put women under house arrest. Armstrong introduces us to several women--among them the commissioner of human rights for Afghanistan, Dr. Sima Samar--who describe their rapid-fire descent into the waking nightmare of life under the Taliban. Armstrong then steps back to describe the centuries-old history of misogyny and the way customs such as honour killing found their way to Afghanistan. She also highlights the extraordinary work women around the world were doing to rescue their sisters in Afghanistan while venerable bodies such as the United Nations were virtually silent. Leading us through the fractured history of Afghanistan, Armstrong examines what Islam actually says about women. She assesses the monumental impact of September 11 and ends with intriguing conclusions drawn by Afghan women. Based on first-hand experience that includes Armstrong's own unexpected stay with the Taliban and years of passionate involvement in the struggle for women's rights in Afghanistan, Veiled Threat brings a humane and informed view to the lives of women in this tragic and awesome land.

In his acclaimed Madonnas That Maim, Michael Carroll began his systematic examination of popular Catholicism in Italy. Now, in Veiled Threats, Carroll delves more deeply into the distinctive character of Italian popular Catholicism. He explores in detail the complex relationship between popular and official Catholicism in Italy from the fifteenth century to the present, bringing to light a considerable body of recent Italian scholarship on the Catholic experience in Italy never before translated into English. Carroll places special emphasis on miraculous images and the cults that form around them, on public performances such as self-flagellation during Holy Week processions, on devotion to souls in Purgatory, on the success of preaching orders in adapting to local beliefs, on the role of relics and the incorrupt bodies of saints, and on differing responses to the Reformation in northern and southern Italy. Throughout Veiled Threats, Carroll discovers in the beliefs and practices of popular Catholicism and implicit logic and vital creativity that reflect local experiences and needs far removed from those of official Catholicism.

Integrity Taylor has regained possession of her ancestral lands - and inherited a whole host of new problems. The spectre of what really happened to her parents is casting a shadow over everything while Fomori demons are being sighted up and down the Highlands. It doesn't help that Aifric Moncrieffe still seems determined to see her dead and emerald eyed Byron remains stubbornly blind to his father's true nature. Integrity is determined to stay in control of her own destiny, however, even if it means confronting the darkness across the Veil yet again. And at least she's still got a sense of humour... This is the third book in the Highland Magic series.

The purpose of this book is to examine violence on college campuses and prepare campus practitioners to both prevent and respond to violence. Since the first edition was published, major violence has redefined the landscape, most notably the experiences of 9/11 and the tragedy of the Virginia Tech massacre. On the positive side, however, great strides have been made in understanding violence and how to prevent, interrupt, and respond to both internal and external threats; this growth is reflected in this new edition. The book is organized into three major sections. The first section addresses broad campus violence concerns and violence conceptualization; understanding the basics of violence; and identifying the cast of characters: targets, perpetrators, protectors, and bystanders. The second section explores general prevention strategies, including looking for warning signs of impending violent acts, building barriers to discourage potential offenders from acting out, and developing effective safety approaches for law enforcement personnel. The third section looks more in depth at particular forms of campus violence including sexual assault, rioting, hate crimes, hazing, homicide, nonsexual assault, and bombing. Each chapter offers recommendations for prevention and follow-up strategies. Salient case examples and a comprehensive glossary further enhance the text. "Violence Goes to College" offers hope that somewhere between Pollyanna and paranoia, campuses can find a healthy balance between reasonable protection and personal freedom. This new edition continues to be a user-friendly resource providing busy college personnel, students, and parents with directed, well-researched strategies to prepare for the possibility of tragedy before it strikes. It is not only a valuable tool for college administrators, but also a useful research book for journalists, psychologists, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys. Part I of this book, "Leaving "It-Will-Never-Happen-Here": Helping College Communities Acknowledge Violence Potential Without Creating Panic", contains: (1) Seeing Violence as a Virus (John Nicoletti and Sally Spencer-Thomas); (2) Violence 101: Understanding the Basics (John Nicoletti and Sally Spencer-Thomas); (3) Vulnerable to Infection: Risks to College Communities (Sally Spencer-Thomas and John Nicoletti); and (4) Alcohol: a Catalyst for Violence (Sally Spencer-Thomas). Part ii, "Developing Antibodies: General Prevention Strategies for the College Community", contains: (5) Heeding the Signs and Symptoms: What Are the Red Flags for Impending Violence (John Nicoletti and Sally Spencer-Thomas); (6) Building Barriers to Violence Part I: Amassing the Army (Sally Spencer-Thomas and John Nicoletti); (7) Building Barriers to Violence Part ii: Developing Policy and Procedures for Threats and Violence (John Nicoletti and Sally Spencer-Thomas); (8) Building Barriers to Violence Part iii: Environmental Protection and Safety Strategies (John Nicoletti and Christopher Bollinger); (9) Law and Campus Violence (Darby Dickerson); and (10) Preparing for the Violence Aftermath: a Community Affected (Christopher Bollinger and Sally Spencer-Thomas). Part iii, "Strains of Campus Violence", contains: (11) Sexual Assault (Rebecca Flintoft); (12) Suicide (Sally Spencer-Thomas, Rae Sandler, and Jina Jensen); (13) Hate Crimes and Lesser Forms of Hateful Violence (Christopher Bollinger and Kyle Wych); (14) Hazing (Hank Nuwer and Christopher Bollinger); (15) Avenger Violence on College Campuses (John Nicoletti and Heather Morris); (16) Rioting (Sally Spencer-Thomas); (17) Homicide and Non-Sexual Assault (John Nicoletti and Sally Spencer-Thomas); and (18) Arson and Bombing (Sally Spencer-Thomas). Epilogue: The Future of Campus Violence by John Nicoletti is included. An appendix, a glossary, and indexes are also included.

The National Security has already been affected by low priority threats. The strategy will likely depend on the ability of the strategists to identify and frame long term threats. This study explores the long term consequences of social threats. They may have little immediate import and low priority. There are simply not enough resources, time and energy to expend on a threat that is slowing developing over time with a long lasting cumulative effect.

Khalila Hawas, a young Muslim American college student attending Roosevelt University in Chicago, has her whole life ahead of her. But when the vibrant young woman is brutally murdered in an alley just east the Loop, tensions mount as outraged Muslims clamor for the killer to be apprehended and brought to justice. Detective Sgt. Morgan Strongbow and his new partner, Sara Rydell are assigned to the case. Soon, another Muslim girl turns up dead, and the detectives find themselves thrust into a religiously charged case that could cost one or both of them their lives. When Sara learns Strongbow once dated her aunt, matters are complicated even further. Strongbow must fend off bittersweet memories of first love as his partner picks at his emotional scabs, trying to uncover his deepest secrets. Filled with mind-bending plot twists, Veiled Threats explores the most daunting issues of today: the war in Iraq, the problems of America's returning veterans, and how people of different faiths treat each other in a post-September 11 world.

His Christian Heritage always led Willem to believe that the three Abrahamic faiths Judaism, Christianity and Islam shared a common God. 9/11 made him realize that there was something not true about this belief. In his research Willem soon discovered that Islam operates under a veiled threat under political correctness and that the teachings of Islam places the West in great danger. So then based on the information provided by the teachings of the Quran and the prophet Mohammad how should we respond to the cultural blindfold that political correctness has placed on us?
