Book Excerpt :

The legacy of the “Queen of Suspense” continues with the highly anticipated follow-up to Mary Higgins Clark’s iconic novel, Where Are The Children?, featuring the children of Nancy Harmon, all grown up and again in peril. Of the fifty-six bestsellers the “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark published in her lifetime, Where Are the Children? was her biggest, selling millions of copies and forever transforming the genre of suspense fiction. In that story, a young California mother named Nancy Harmon was convicted of murdering her two children. Though released on a technicality, she was abandoned by her husband and became such a pariah in the media that she was forced to move across the country to Cape Cod, change her identity and appearance, and start a new life. Years later her two children from a second marriage, Mike and Missy, would go missing and Nancy yet again became the prime suspect—but this time, Nancy was able to confront the secrets buried in her past and rescue her kids from a dangerous predator. Now, more than four decades since readers first met Nancy Harmon, comes the thrilling sequel to the groundbreaking novel that set the stage for future generations of psychological suspense. A lawyer-turned-successful podcaster, Missy has recently married a man whose first wife died tragically, leaving him and their young daughter, Riley, behind. While Missy and her brother Mike help their mom Nancy relocate from Cape Cod to the equally idyllic Hamptons, Missy’s new stepdaughter goes missing. Drawing on the experience of their own abduction, Missy and Mike race to find Riley to save her from the trauma they still struggle with—or worse. Just like the original, Where Are the Children Now? keeps you guessing and holding their breath until the very last page.

Book Short Summary:

The need for the Chinese to know God is significant, especially after many years of blooming economy and COVID-19 because better material life has not necessarily brought happiness, which led people to seek more of the real meaning of life. Ancient Chinese beliefs, Buddhism, and all other religions are gaining more and more attention in China. It is the opportunity and urgent need that Christians who get in contact with the Chinese boldly and wisely share their faith with the Chinese. Knowing some Chinese culture and mindset will help Western Christians to better articulate the content and method to share their faith with the Chinese. In this book, I talked directly to my Chinese friends from what they care the most as career success and connect that to Christian faith. I also talked about Taoism which is a popular ancient Chinese belief and how that is connected with Christian faith. The key method I used in this book is to start the conversation from what Chinese professionals care the most and the philosophy they know about life, and then connect those with Christian faith, turning the direction and steering them toward God. Chinese culture and methods to bring the Chinese to God do not end here. After this book, I keep gathering the ways to bring the Chinese to God. If you are interested in knowing more, you are very welcome to contact me at the email [email protected] I have more information about Chinese culture in the form of PowerPoint presentations and videos. I will be happy to share that information for free. If you also have some experience in bringing the Chinese to God, it will be also wonderful if we can connect. May God bless His own work.

This book opens the eyes and minds of its readers to seeing and admitting that the facets they claim that elevate them to being civilized are, realistically, birthing the barbaric nature that is currently engulfing the core of their societies: the children.

Book Short Summary:

With the growing strength of minority voices in recent decades has come much impassioned discussion of residential schools, the institutions where attendance by Native children was compulsory as recently as the 1960s. Former students have come forward in increasing numbers to describe the psychological and physical abuse they suffered in these schools, and many view the system as an experiment in cultural genocide. In this first comprehensive history of these institutions, J.R. Miller explores the motives of all three agents in the story. He looks at the separate experiences and agendas of the government officials who authorized the schools, the missionaries who taught in them, and the students who attended them. Starting with the foundations of residential schooling in seventeenth-century New France, Miller traces the modern version of the institution that was created in the 1880s, and, finally, describes the phasing-out of the schools in the 1960s. He looks at instruction, work and recreation, care and abuse, and the growing resistance to the system on the part of students and their families. Based on extensive interviews as well as archival research, Miller's history is particularly rich in Native accounts of the school system. This book is an absolute first in its comprehensive treatment of this subject. J.R. Miller has written a new chapter in the history of relations between indigenous and immigrant peoples in Canada. Co-winner of the 1996 Saskatchewan Book Award for nonfiction. Winner of the 1996 John Wesley Dafoe Foundation competition for Distinguished Writing by Canadians Named an 'Outstanding Book on the subject of human rights in North America' by the Gustavus Myer Center for the Study of Human Rights in North America.

Book Short Summary:

Cybercartography in a Reconciliation Community: Engaging Intersecting Perspectives, Volume Eight gathers perspectives on issues related to reconciliation—primarily in a residential / boarding school context—and demonstrates the unifying power of Cybercartography by identifying intersections among different knowledge perspectives. Concerned with understanding approaches toward reconciliation and education, preference is given to reflexivity in research and knowledge dissemination. The positionality aspect of reflexivity is reflected in the chapter contributions concerning various aspects of cybercartographic atlas design and development research, and related activities. In this regard, the book offers theoretical and practical knowledge of collaborative transdisciplinary research through its reflexive assessment of the relationships, processes and knowledge involved in cybercartographic research. Using, most specifically, the Residential Schools Land Memory Mapping Project for context, Cybercartography in a Reconciliation Community provides a high speed tour through the project’s innovative collaborative approach to mapping institutional material and volunteered geographic information. Exploring Cybercartography through the lens of this atlas project provides for a comprehensive understanding of both Cybercartography and transdisciplinary research, while informing the reader of education and reconciliation initiatives in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Italy. Includes a variety of examples of reconciliation work, especially related to residential / boarding schools, and examines common themes in the issues discussed Offers both conceptual and applied dimensions, and provides a good example of a reflexive approach to both research and knowledge dissemination Addresses a modern application for Cybercartography that is of considerable societal importance Provides historiographical accounts of atlas-making processes, multidisciplinary perspectives on research issues and conceptual explorations

Almost four decades after the original publication of this celebrated book, John Hersey went back to Hiroshima in search of the people whose stories he had told. His account of what he discovered about them is now the eloquent and moving final chapter of Hiroshima.

Book Short Summary:

Canada's relationship with its Indigenous people has suffered as a result of both the residential school system and the lack of understanding of the historical and current impact of those schools.

Guided by acclaimed Indigenous author Monique Gray Smith, readers will learn about the lives of Survivors and listen to allies who are putting the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission into action.

Book Short Summary:

Author Giftus John’s goal for his home island of Dominica is to reach to the top of the mountain—a milestone of greatness—despite all the difficulties it faces. Although Dominicans may leave their home in pursuit of other dreams, he believes that someday they will return to a better land. Building on this idea, Verses from atop the Mountain expresses John’s passion and concern for events in his homeland and his hopes that its negative situations will soon be remedied. This anthology of poems focuses on an array of topics: politics, nature, culture, love of country, abuse, life and death, and human behavior. Poems such as “The Migrant’s Song,” also explore the conditions that Dominicans may encounter in their adopted homelands, like the United States. Although there are hurdles to navigate for Dominica, as John makes clear in the last poem of the collection, “Living in Hope,” there is hope for the future. Sharing one man’s deep love for the land he still calls home, Verses from atop the Mountain presents poetry that invites you to experience the beauty and unique life of Dominica. *** Verses From Atop The Mountain is the essential expression from the heart of a passionate patriot, who maintains a determined stance of struggling purpose within the diaspora, as Dominica, his beloved island home, where nature abounds, beckons. “I Wait For Spring,” illustrates that nostalgic longing quite eloquently. Giftus John is obviously involved with life in Dominica. The wealth of topic selections is rivaled only by the surprising and yet simple and accessible twists of phrases that embellish the work and bring joy to the reader, as it leans on colorful contrasting symbols embedded in Nature. In “The Village Awakens,” one of my favorites, Giftus paints a lively picture of a village in Dominica that warms the soul of those who have experienced the unlocking of the secret of Dominican rural life. Like him, we all have smiled in awe at the beauty of the simple life that surrounds us. In “What Is Freedom?” another of my favorites, Giftus challenges almost everyone’s view of the word “freedom.” He is mad about the abuse of the doctrine of the right to free speech. He questions one’s interpretation of freedom of association, and of freedom to be “red, green, or blue,” or to be “gay, or straight.” “What is freedom?” he asks. “Is it just a word?” Verses From atop the Mountain is a delightful journey and a “must have” book for anyone interested in Dominican, and Caribbean poetry.

Book Short Summary:

The labor movement in the United States is a bulwark of democracy and a driving force for social and economic equality. Yet its stories remain largely unknown to Americans. Robert Forrant and Mary Anne Trasciatti edit a collection of essays focused on nationwide efforts to propel the history of labor and working people into mainstream narratives of US history. In Part One, the contributors concentrate on ways to collect and interpret worker-oriented history for public consumption. Part Two moves from National Park sites to murals to examine the writing and visual representation of labor history. Together, the essayists explore how place-based labor history initiatives promote understanding of past struggles, create awareness of present challenges, and support efforts to build power, expand democracy, and achieve justice for working people. A wide-ranging blueprint for change, Where Are the Workers? shows how working-class perspectives can expand our historical memory and inform and inspire contemporary activism.

Book Short Summary:

I feel very blessed after writing my first book, From My Heart To Your Heart. I was extremely happy to have located many of the poems written over forty years ago. They are dated throughout this book. It is my desire to blend the old with the new. To my surprise many of the things addressed over forty years ago have come to pass. It is easy to see that some of the poems were before their time, and perhaps that is why they were hidden from me for such a time as this. The message continues from the first book, delving a little deeper into the things we still struggle with throughout our lives. We are encouraged here to deal with matters of the heart so that we can be free from the many traps that the Enemy has set for us, causing us to fail in our relationships and fall short of the glory of God.

Book Short Summary:

This book offers a history of African American education, while also serving as a companion text for teachers, students and researchers in cultural criticism, American and African American studies, postcolonialism, historiography, and psychoanalytics. Overall, it represents essential reading for scholars, critics, leaders of educational policy, and all others interested in ongoing discussions not only about the role of community, family, teachers and others in facilitating quality education for the citizenry, but also about ensuring the posterity of a society via equal access to, and attainment of, quality education by its constituents of color. Particularly, this volume fills a void in the annals of African American history and African American education, by addressing the vibrancy of an education ethos within Black America which has unequivocally served as cultural, historical, political, legal and theoretical references.

Book Short Summary:

Confucius taught us that the only person who can always be happy is the one who knows how to be happy with everything. Similarly, if we avoid passive conformism and false resignation, we discover that the password to open the doors of personal fulfilment is made up of a single syllable: YES. YES. To life, just as it is. To ourselves, just as we are. To others, just as they are. To our parents, just as they are and as they were, as the providential vehicles of our existence and much more. This is the message that Joan Garriga Bacardí unveils in this book—poetic, though-provoking, and conducive to change—about a basic issue that concerns us all: the process of assuming our origins, our family legacy, and of thereby finding our place in the world. The text celebrates life without taking away its realism and harshness, thereby distancing itself from artificial, positivist psychology. Where are the Coins? offers new perspectives for the soul, both for those who suffer when they think of their parents and for those who do so with gratitude. It speaks the language of reconciliation and peace. It shows the power of love and how to integrate and overcome the wounds that get in the way of having a full life.

In 1972 Pope Paul VI shockingly proclaimed, “Through some crack, the smoke of Satan has entered into the Temple of God.” The Catholic Church has been infiltrated with evil traitors hell bent on its destruction. And KGB agent Rolf Wozack is poised to thrust the final dagger! Stalin’s Priest takes the reader on a spellbinding, page turning, thrill ride with international mystery and intrigue. Russian Premier Joseph Stalin sets out to destroy the church to achieve his utopian communist state. He has priests murdered and destroys churches, but the church continues on in secret. Frustrated and desperate, Stalin hatches a sinister plan to destroy the church from within by sending KGB agents to the seminaries to become undercover priests. Rolf Wozack is one of Stalin’s best agents. Follow his journey from a nightmarish childhood in World War II Poland, where he was orphaned by the Nazi’s then rescued by the Russians, only to be brainwashed by his KGB handlers. Rolf rises quickly through the priesthood and eventually to the Vatican to carry out Stalin’s most important order. Murder! Twenty years earlier in 1917, in Fatima, Portugal, three young shepherd children claim to have been visited by the Virgin Mary. She shares visions of heaven and hell and tells them that Russia will spread evil throughout the world causing great wars and persecution of the church. All this foretold twenty years before Stalin would ever dream it up. Can her warning save the church and the world from Russia’s evil, or will Rolf sacrifice everything and carry out Stalin’s final order?

Book Short Summary:

MUSEUM TRANSFORMATIONS DECOLONIZATION AND DEMOCRATIZATION Edited By ANNIE E. COOMBES AND RUTH B. PHILLIPS Museum Transformations: Decolonization and Democratization addresses contemporary approaches to decolonization, greater democratization, and revisionist narratives in museum exhibition and program development around the world. The text explores how museums of art, history, and ethnography responded to deconstructive critiques from activists and poststructuralist and postcolonial theorists, and provided models for change to other types of museums and heritage sites. The volume's first set of essays discuss the role of the museum in the narration of difficult histories, and how altering the social attitudes and political structures that enable oppression requires the recognition of past histories of political and racial oppression and colonization in museums. Subsequent essays consider the museum's new roles in social action and discuss experimental projects that work to change power dynamics within institutions and leverage digital technology and new media.

Book Short Summary:

This volume is a comprehensive grammar of the Turkish language, suitable both for students of the Turkish language and linguistic scholars. Gerjan van Schaaik draws on sound linguistic research and an extensive corpus of real-life data, alongside more than twenty years of feedback from university classrooms, to provide the most complete, up-to-date, and practically useful survey of the Turkish language ever compiled. Following an introduction that provides background information on the Turkic languages and an overview of the linguistic terminology adopted in the volume, the first part of the book explores the fundamentals of Turkish spelling and pronunciation. Parts II and III explore the noun phrase and adjuncts and modifiers, respectively, while Parts IV and V examine the verbal system and sentence structure. These first five parts together represent a valuable overview of the fundamentals of Turkish grammar. Part VI provides an account of the ways in which new words are constructed on the basis of existing material, and constitutes a bridge to the more advanced matter treated in parts VII and VIII, including relative clauses, subordination, embedded clauses, clausal complements and the finer points of the verbal system. The work will be accompanied by a companion website that will provide exercises to accompany each part.

Book Short Summary:

The knowledge base about mentoring and coaching in education has grown considerably worldwide in the last decade. The very many definitions of mentoring and coaching demand an evidence base to assist with understanding the convergence and distinctions between these concepts, and with situating them in relation to learning. This Handbook is a leading source of ideas and information. It covers national and international research on schools, higher education, and disciplines within and beyond education. The editors draw together contributions and present evidence bases and alternative worldviews in which concepts are both untangled and substantiated. Unique in its coverage, this handbook maps current knowledge and understanding, values and skills underpinning educational mentoring and coaching for learning. Contributors who are leading scholars and practitioners address issues of theory and practice in school, higher education, and other educational contexts, and they set out practical applications of coaching and mentoring for practitioners and researchers. Contributors also address social justice issues, such as those involving traditional and technical forms of mentoring and coaching, democratic and accountability agendas, and institutional and historical patterns of learning. The SAGE Handbook of Mentoring and Coaching in Education is an essential reference for practitioners, researchers, educators, and policymakers. Dr Sarah J Fletcher is an international Educational Research Mentoring and Coaching Consultant and she convenes the Mentoring and Coaching SIG for the British Educational Research Association. Carol A Mullen is Professor and Chair, Educational Leadership and Cultural Foundations Department, at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.

Book Short Summary:

Objects of fear and fascination, cannibals have long signified an elemental "otherness," an existence outside the bounds of normalcy. In the American imagination, the figure of the cannibal has evolved tellingly over time, as Jeff Berglund shows in this study encompassing a strikingly eclectic collection of cultural, literary, and cinematic texts. Cannibal Fictions brings together two discrete periods in U.S. history: the years between the Civil War and World War I, the high-water mark in America's imperial presence, and the post-Vietnam era, when the nation was beginning to seriously question its own global agenda. Berglund shows how P. T. Barnum, in a traveling exhibit featuring so-called "Fiji cannibals," served up an alien "other" for popular consumption, while Edgar Rice Burroughs in his Tarzan of the Apes series tapped into similar anxieties about the eruption of foreign elements into a homogeneous culture. Turning to the last decades of the twentieth century, Berglund considers how treatments of cannibalism variously perpetuated or subverted racist, sexist, and homophobic ideologies rooted in earlier times. Fannie Flagg's novel Fried Green Tomatoes invokes cannibalism to new effect, offering an explicit critique of racial, gender, and sexual politics (an element to a large extent suppressed in the movie adaptation). Recurring motifs in contemporary Native American writing suggest how Western expansion has, cannibalistically, laid the seeds of its own destruction. And James Dobson's recent efforts to link the pro-life agenda to allegations of cannibalism in China testify still further to the currency and pervasiveness of this powerful trope. By highlighting practices that preclude the many from becoming one, these representations of cannibalism, Berglund argues, call into question the comforting national narrative of e pluribus unum.

Book Short Summary:

Peggy Arnold, and younger twin siblings Mike and Nora, are living with a harsh aunt and uncle after their parents are thought to have been killed in a plane crash. Aided by Jack, an orphan boy they have befriended, they run away to an island on a nearby lake, and together they make a new home constructed with the branches of a willow tree, this much-loved "living house" being one of the highlights of the story. However, living on one's own turns out to be far more difficult than they thought, and, along with a lot of fun and happiness, they also suffer a lot of hardship – especially when winter sets in.

  • Pdf File: global-childhoods.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This astute book initiates a broad discussion from a variety of different disciplines about how we place children nationally, globally and within development discourses. Unlike other books of its kind, it does not seek to dwell solely on the abiding complexities of local comparisons. Rather, it elaborates larger concerns about the changing nature of childhood, young people’s experiences, their citizenship and the embodiment of their political identities as they are embedded in the processes of national development and globalization. In particular, this book concentrates on three main issues: nation building and developing children, child participation and activism in the context of development, and globalization and children’s live in the context of what has been called "the end of development." These are relatively broad research perspectives that find focus in what the authors term "reproducing and developing children" as a key issue of national and global concern. They further argue that understanding children and reproduction is key to understanding globalization.

Book Short Summary:

Throughout her career, Colette experimented with genre for the purposes of telling stories of her life. The books that resulted, known collectively as her 'livres-souvenirs', are far from being autobiographies in the customary sense. By addressing the need to reconsider the generic issues surrounding autobiographical story-telling, Anne Freadman's study brings the richness of 'the genre question' to the fore, shedding a fresh light on this much-loved body of work. From the vignettes ofLa Maison de Claudineto the note-books ofL'etoile vesper andLe Fanal bleu, from stories of losing to stories of collecting, Colette's memory books take different narrative forms and explore the passing of time in different ways. This book investigates Colette's variegated generic choices as so many ways of 'telling time'.

Book Short Summary:

Where are the dead? What are they doing? What kind of a process is dying? What relationships exist among the dead themselves, and between the dead and those in the world they have left behind? Modern philosophers argue that the idea of disembodied survival - to which many believers pay lip service - is incoherent, and that there can be evidence neither for nor against something incoherent. By contrast, this book argues, the idea of an embodied survival (albeit a form of embodiment differing from our present embodiment) makes perfect sense in itself and fits much better with the alleged evidence for post-mortem survival. Exploring post-mortem survival, Where are the Dead? uses a variety of empirical data, alongside mythological, legendary and purely fictional material, to illustrate how the less familiar idea of embodied post-mortem survival might actually ’work’ in some real afterlife environment. By asking questions about the nature and whereabouts of the afterlife, and about what it might be like to be dead, the book explores themes nowadays relatively neglected even in disciplines explicitly concerned with ideas about death, dying and life after death.
