Dirty. Lazy. Good-for-nothing. Jay Thacker is used to being called names because his dad is half Navajo. But things are different after he and his mother move to a small town in Utah to stay with his grandparents during WWII. Jay makes friends and earns money working the fields for his well-respected grandfather—but he encounters a problem in Ken, a fellow worker who’s from the nearby Japanese internment camp. Ken’s a Jap. And Jay’s dad, who’s been fighting for the navy out in the Pacific, is missing in action. This moving story about an unlikely friendship deftly addresses themes of prejudice and intolerance, providing readers a glimpse of the past that enlightens the present.

By the end of World War I, 45,000 Australians had died on the Western Front. Some bodies had been hastily buried mid-battle in massed graves; others were mutilated beyond recognition. Often men were simply listed as 'Missing in Action' because nobody knew for sure. Lieutenant Robert Burns was one of the missing, and now that the guns had fallen silent his father wanted to know what had become of his son. He wasn't the only one looking for answers. A loud clamour arose from Australia for information and the need for the dead to be buried respectfully. Many of the Australians charged with the grizzly task of finding and reburying the dead were deeply flawed. Each had his own reasons for preferring to remain in France instead of returning home. In the end there was a great scandal, with allegations of 'body hoaxing' and gross misappropriation of money and army possessions leading to two highly secretive inquiries. Untold until now, Missing in Action is the compelling and unexpected story of those dark days and darker deeds and a father's desperate search for his son's remains.

This edited volume presents critical scholarship analysing governance practices in diverse jurisdictions in Europe and North America, at multiple scales, and in relation to several different arenas of policy and practice. The contributors address shortcomings in the mainstream literature on governance within the discipline of political science. The volume as a whole is marked by geographical and topical diversity. However, what the individual chapters have in common is that each considers whether and how gender, racialized identity, and/or other axes of marginalization are visible within the conceptualizations and/or practices of governance under discussion. Drawing together insights and conceptual tools from both feminist and post-structuralist frameworks in analysing governance practices, this volume will be of great interest to scholars and graduates who engage with feminist and/or post-structural analysis of policy and governance. It will also be of use to critical policy scholars in anthropology, geography, sociology, and women’s studies.

"I think I'm MIA," mothers will declare as they battle the negative self-talk, symptoms, and conflicting feelings that are often associated with losing their sense of self. In the insightful and thought-provoking self-help guide Missing In Action: How Mothers Lose, Grieve, and Retrieve Their Sense of Self, author Anne M. Smollon offers a unique perspective on change, loss, and grief in the lives of women consumed by motherhood. By casting a new spin on an old acronym, Smollon introduces Maternal Intrapersonal Anxiety (MIA). MIA depicts the unrecognized and unacknowledged grief that accompanies the feelings of loss many women experience as they transition into motherhood and encounter undesirable changes associated with their physical appearance, lifestyle, mood, income, relationships, personal goals, and self-esteem. These losses frequently combine with the physical and mental drain of motherhood to create a far greater loss-a mother's sense of self. Missing In Action details the various kinds of change and loss that occur, illuminates the compelling similarities between grief and the myriad symptoms mothers describe, explains how MIA relates to the violation of personal boundaries, and ultimately defines ten goals to help mothers reclaim their sense of self.

The Vietnam War didn’t end for everyone in 1973, particularly not the six hundred or so Americans left behind to rot in Asian POW camps, abandoned by the US government. It didn’t end for Trevor McIntyre either, driven by the knowledge that men were left behind and inspired by one who came home, Captain Mac Danner. Together with a former Medal of Honor winner, a former Congressman, and a Defense Department official disgusted with his country’s betrayal, five middle-aged citizens combine their various skills to conspire to bring home a living POW from Laos. Danger mounts when one in their group is murdered, and the prints on the murder shell belong to a man who officially died in action in 1969—further evidence that a secret “returnee program” during the Reagan administration had succeeded.
