by Pam Zaretta
Everyone will die eventually, yet death is a highly taboo subject that most people prefer not to think about, let alone discuss or plan for. Death and Dying: What You Need to Know—Before You Go fearlessly takes a fresh and pragmatic look at death through scientific, medical, and legal aspects applicable to everyone, regardless of their religious, spiritual, or philosophical beliefs about death.

by Eric DemareeTHIS IS THE BOOK THAT NO ONE BELIEVES EXISTS No one really believes that a slam-dunk argument for God exists. However, C. S. Lewis, Alvin Platinga and Robert M. Adams have been close to a slam-dunk argument for God. As Lewis asked, “How do we know whether an action is fair or not?” As Platinga has noted, “Because of our experiences, we do not need an argument to have a reasonable belief in God.” Amazingly, this book reveals a universal experience of God, which gives us what is possibly the fi... more
by Corydon B. DunhamBecause of the overwhelming changes in media within the past twenty years, First Amendment values are more vital than ever to this country’s freedom. This thorough study brings to the forefront the reasons that government regulation of news content violates the public interest and the fundamental principles of the First Amendment. A recent FCC decision may even threaten the freedom of news on the Internet. The U.S. State Department urged at World Press Freedom Day in 2011 that journalists shoul... more
by Tony KampnerLooking for root causes of problems in society, I find a fatal flaw. It is so simple; the choice between cooperation and competition has far reaching consequences. We have chosen competition which has resulted in a policy of divide and conquer. One very early enigma was about body and soul. Using the divide and conquer approach we are left with the physical materialistic world. This in turn has fragmented society stuck in the ultimate competition of perpetual wars. Using insights from holistic h... more

This book explores the possible reasoning and motivation behind why political wives stay with their husbands after the husbands cheat. Hillary Clinton couldn’t have known in 1998 how her husband’s high-profile philandering would play out. Would he be rehabilitated in the public eye? She took the gamble. Had she left the marriage, she might have become the spurned wife of a retired politician, instead of the history-making first woman to run for the U.S. presidency on a major party... more
by Robert NwadiaruCountries change for the better after going through upheavals. The reason is that those countries’ leaders learn from the crises and position their countries on progressive lane. This hypothesis has failed in Nigeria. Crises mushroom daily. Some tribes even threaten to separate from the country and become independent. The president once elected turns a tribal and religious representative. The new President operated for five months without cabinet. After strong national outcry, he recycled the ol... more
by Martin WassermanIn this work, the author makes it a point to try to connect meaningfully and purposefully with the 'other'whether that 'other' is a Yiddish jazz poet, a Vietnamese poet-educator, or an anonymous Aztec singer of songs. Since poetry is a genre with which the author feels quite comfortable, he deliberately uses translated verse as a means of connecting with each of the poets from the three different cultures mentioned above.

by Michael M. StockdellOur current political system puts too much power into the hands of the few and often produces results that don't work. The Solution proposes a plan that restricts the size and scope of the federal government while increasing the direct influence of the people. The goal is to make government simpler with full public accountability. The book is divided into four sections. Two sections describe the various reasons why big government programs don't work and refute the reasons often cited for why the... more
by William L. SeaveyAmeriCanada? is the first book in many years by an American to encourage and help expedite better understanding and cooperation between Americans and Canadians--personally and politically. It reviews the 200 plus history of the two countrys' relationships above and below the 49th parallel (not always amicable)--and proposes improvements in such areas as political understanding, cross-border security, and international trade. It arrives at a time when a newly elected President (and recently ... more
by Peter ZeihanThe world is changing in ways most of us find incomprehensible. Alone among the world's powers, only the United States is geographically wealthy, demographically robust, and energy secure. The American shale revolution does more than sever the largest of the remaining ties that bind America's fate to the wider world. It re-industrializes the United States, accelerates the global order's breakdown, and triggers a series of wide ranging military conflicts that will shape the next two decades. The ... more
by Lawrence MohrTraditionally, middle-class Victorian women were believed to have been radically sexually repressed. More recently discovered evidence, however, suggests that they may have been more like modern women. Which view is correct? Extensive analysis of records, novels, love letters, and the Mosher survey appears to corroborate both! The answer is revealed in the final chapter, putting our view of Victorianism on a new footing. Featured as well are frank narrative portraits of the sexual adjustment of ... more

As president however, Obama popularity plummeted almost immediately; he suffered the fiercest opposition from the Republican Party than any president since the creation of the nation. Amidst a flurry of criticism, it’s easy to miss what Obama has done as president and where he had failed.
The OBAMA Legacy is not a tabulation of praises for the Obama adminis... more
