When she died, Christine O'Gara left behind a fragile, fractured family—estranged, embittered and at odds over custody of her only child. But in time, they'll see that Christine's legacy is strong enough to finally give a young girl the father she deserves. Cora, Christine's mother—No stranger to loss, she's desperate to do right by her daughter and she'll fight with everything she's got. Lexie, Christine's daughter—Torn between grief and rage at the thought of living with the man who abandoned them, she's planning revenge. Alex, Christine's ex-husband—Never truly believed in his own worth…or understood what Christine saw in him. He'd tried to return to her, but he'd been turned away. Only now can he come back and prove Christine right. We can't choose our family. We can learn to deserve the love we crave from them.

Ostensibly a book about therapy dogs, this thoughtful work also looks at the shortcomings of nursing-home life. Dog lovers will enjoy the antics of Hugo's chocolate Lab, who is a great icebreaker at a home, and will learn that dogs needn't be perfectly behaved to be good in their role (far from it, in this case). Readers also learn that residents too often can be neglected by family, even those who live nearby, and that the effects of this neglect are huge in already severely circumscribed lives. Teens volunteering, or contemplating it, at nursing homes and hospitals, as well as social-studies students, will get a great deal out of this sympathetic volume and will be much more understanding and able to help residents/patients in practical but small ways.

An evolved civilization existed in India, much before the advent of Roman, Greek, Egyptian or Chinese civilizations in this world. And, yet, India is the only country among them, which went into subjugation, in the last millennium. This book gives an insight into its reasons. It also brings out, why Indians are brilliant individually, but collectively, they belong to a third world country. It dwells on their strength and weaknesses developed over 6000 years, which remain unspoken or spoken in disguise. Also, it reflects on the reasons why great men like Shiv, Ganesh, Hanuman and Krishna, who were born just like Christ, Mohammed and Buddha were consigned into mythology. The readers may find much rationality in its bold attempt to ‘reveal the harsh truth’. It also provides thought-provoking solutions, to ponder and act.

Globalization is a subject we have heard and read so much about. Here is the first of a series of monographs designed to unmask the truth behind globalization. Eventually, "The UNSPOKEN TRUTH" series of booklets will cover a wide array of topics which, like globalization, have far-reaching policy implications. You will find within these pages solid information and stimulating ideas on the whole subject of globalization. Starting with a meaningful normative idea of "globalizing development," the author shows the close interrelationship between globalization and liberalization, how the law of "intellectual property" is inimical to "good" globalization, and how globalization, left unchecked, can undermine the sovereignty of national governments. The book challenges the multilateral organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization to stop advocating globalization policies that benefit the developed countries at the expense of the developing countries. In particular, it calls on the United States as the monolithic superpower that is uniquely placed to assume world leadership, to rise above selfish national interests, and confront the challenge of spearheading global equity. The book suggests, however, that the United Nations, for all its shortcomings, is still the body best placed to engineer balanced globalization on a world scale, provided it is reformed in a way that enhances significantly both its power and its international prestige.

"This country is fairly crowded with doctors, families, and patients—all possessed of good intentions—failing to achieve the simple goal of allowing people to die with dignity and grace." In the 1970s, most Americans died swiftly and brutally: of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, or in accidents. But in the past three decades, medical advances have extended our lives and changed the way we die. In Last Rights, Stephen Kiernan reveals the disconnect between how patients want to live the end of life—pain free, functioning mentally and physically, surrounded by family and friends—and how the medical system continues to treat the dying—with extreme interventions, at immense cost, and with little regard to pain, human comforts, or even the stated wishes of patients and families. Backed with surveys, interviews, and intimate portraits of people from all walks of life, from the dying and their families to the doctors and nurses who care for them, this book will be for our time what Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's books were for a previous generation.

This is a chance to explore the meaning of Christian faith for those in and outside of churches: adults who left the church in their youth, the many religious refugees pushed out by churches, as well as those in churches looking for serious reflection. With short chapters written in conversational style, it refuses to dumb down the presentation or offer false promises. There are no tricks, no bait and switch. It simply gives an account of the good news for our time. Christian faith is risky business. It requires that we consider the way the good news is subverted by religion itself and American culture. Most important, it means examining our own resistance to the message of Jesus. In the end, it involves a willingness to participate in a future marked by the unfolding glory of God.

"This courageous and groundbreaking book documents human rights violations against women in 30 countries around the world and discusses the strategies that lesbian activists and other human rights advocates have employed to challenge such oppression." "Placing lesbian rights within the framework of the broader struggle for women's human rights, this book demonstrates how women's rights and lesbian rights are linked in substantive ways. Both issues highlight how human rights distinctions between the private and public, as well as reluctance to address female sexuality, have perpetuated violations of women and kept them invisible. Furthermore, the defence of lesbian rights is integral to the defence of women's right to determine their own sexuality, to work at the jobs they prefer and to live as they choose with women, men, children or alone. Homophobia, it is argued, is used as a tool to keep women in line and force them to accept their society's assigned gender roles and limitations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
