The Wolf and the Sheep by Penelope Sky Book Summary:

Till death do us part. My father married me off to one of the most powerful men in Italy. Maverick DeVille. But I call him the wolf. He calls me his sheep. The arranged marriage was detested by us both, but we had to make sacrifices for the right reasons. He needed to avenge his mother and I needed protection from the mobs that want to torture me. He's not what I pictured for my husband. He's ruthless, calloused, and cold. His walls are higher than mine. He possesses cruelty that makes him feared. But it doesn't take long for me to respect him...even like him. I rely on my husband more than anyone else in the world. He provides for me, protects me, and chases away all my fears. He lets me graze in the meadow...not a care in the world. Because the wolf is always watching. "When people look in the darkness, they see shadows. I see monsters. And I kill the monsters that hunt my sheep." I hated this marriage in the beginning, but now I realize how lucky I am. How lucky I am to be the sheep the wolf protects...and doesn't eat.

Sheep Dog and the Wolf by Carl Douglass Book Summary:

Sheep Dog and the Wolf: A Story of Terrorism and Response, and the Sheep Dogs Who Protect, tells about Hunter Caulfield--a man who had long since shaken off his extraordinary past—Hunter had been in the nefarious CIA Phoenix program during the ‘police action' in Vietnam, and had learned a dangerous skill set. His old buddy, now the assistant DCIA, recruits him to be a Sheep Dog—a man who protects the rest of us, the sheep. The U.S. tries diplomacy, bellicosity, threats, embargoes, and a police approach to terrorist devils-incarnate, but none of them works. The president cannot reasonably launch another Iraq or Afghanistan without more harm coming to America. The American public is growing ever more restive. Senior diplomats, military officers, and the administration need a new approach, a new weapon. Sheep Dog is that weapon--an assassin who is a nearly perfectly crafted hunter and killer; a man who can work alone, and who can be disavowed and denied in a moment by a whim of the president.

The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing by – Aesop Book Summary:

Do we see the real personality of people or is there more luring behind the surface? Sometimes the ones we trust the most might be playing a role contrary to their character. In his timeless fables, Aesop whispers from the past knowledge which we think we know, but very often forget. Aesop's fables feature animals, legendary creatures, plants, inanimate objects, or forces of nature that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics. All the stories story lead to a particular moral lesson. Aesop (620–564 BCE) was a storyteller that was believed to have lived in Ancient Greece. He is celebrated for a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. In the few scattered sources about his life, Aesop was described as a slave who by his cleverness acquires freedom and becomes an adviser to kings and city-states. Although Aesop's existence remains unclear, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day.

My husband is cruel, ruthless, and despicable. I hate him with every fiber of my being. The only reason I haven't killed him or tried to run away is because of the promise I made. I sold myself to save someone I loved...and this is the price I have to pay. I was sitting alone in a bar when the most handsome man walked inside. Striking blue eyes, cheekbones as sharp as glass, and a muscular body fit for a war. He was gorgeous. I couldn't take my eyes off him. When he bought me a drink, I didn't say no. I'd been unfulfilled for so long, and I wanted a real man for the night. My husband had his affairs so why couldn't I? I noticed the peculiar ring on his right hand, a diamond carved into a skull. If only I'd known what that meant, I would have known who this man was. The Skull King. A man more cruel and ruthless than my own husband.

The Wolf and the Stag by Wayne M. Hoy Book Summary:

The year is 1753 and Andrew Brannock has lost his heart to Jane Godfrey in the overpowering passion of youth only to find she is betrothed to another. Andrew flees England for the colonies in search of a new life amid the wild untamed beauty of America’s frontier, vowing to forget Jane forever. Through the years marriage brings contentment to Jane and with it a daughter, Megan, whose beauty is shadowed only by that of her mother. But, alas, misfortune befalls forcing the family to make their own pilgrimage across the ocean and the untamed wilderness. And there to safeguard and guide them on their journey is none other than Andrew Brannock – now a legend among the Indian Nation – and his son Christian, a darkly handsome borderman, half Indian himself. They have been warned of the perils awaiting them in the vast, unknown wilderness, and Megan’s dark beauty does not go unnoticed by Christian, as well as the renegade whites that make their living stealing and selling white women into slavery. With the stubborn determination of youth, Megan shuns the wilderness, vowing never to succumb to its beauty . . . until she is forced to place her life in the hands of the silent, powerful borderman.

Through the years marriage brings contentment to Jane and with it a daughter, Megan, whose beauty is shadowed only by that of her mother. But, alas, misfortune befalls forcing the family to make their own pilgrimage across the ocean and the untamed wilderness. And there to safeguard and guide them on their journey is none other than Andrew Brannock – now a legend among the Indian Nation – and his son Christian, a darkly handsome borderman, half Indian himself. They have been warned of the perils awaiting them in the vast, unknown wilderness, and Megan’s dark beauty does not go unnoticed by Christian, as well as the renegade whites that make their living stealing and selling white women into slavery. With the stubborn determination of youth, Megan shuns the wilderness, vowing never to succumb to its beauty . . . until she is forced to place her life in the hands of the silent, powerful borderman.

Animals and the Moral Community by Gary Steiner Book Summary:

Gary Steiner argues that ethologists and philosophers in the analytic and continental traditions have largely failed to advance an adequate explanation of animal behavior. Critically engaging the positions of Marc Hauser, Daniel Dennett, Donald Davidson, John Searle, Martin Heidegger, and Hans-Georg Gadamer, among others, Steiner shows how the Western philosophical tradition has forced animals into human experiential categories in order to make sense of their cognitive abilities and moral status and how desperately we need a new approach to animal rights. Steiner rejects the traditional assumption that a lack of formal rationality confers an inferior moral status on animals vis-à-vis human beings. Instead, he offers an associationist view of animal cognition in which animals grasp and adapt to their environments without employing concepts or intentionality. Steiner challenges the standard assumption of liberal individualism according to which humans have no obligations of justice toward animals. Instead, he advocates a "cosmic holism" that attributes a moral status to animals equivalent to that of people. Arguing for a relationship of justice between humans and nature, Steiner emphasizes our kinship with animals and the fundamental moral obligations entailed by this kinship.

The Culture of Animals in Antiquity by Sian Lewis,Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones Book Summary:

The Culture of Animals in Antiquity provides students and researchers with well-chosen and clearly presented ancient sources in translation, some well-known, others undoubtedly unfamiliar, but all central to a key area of study in ancient history: the part played by animals in the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean. It brings new ideas to bear on the wealth of evidence – literary, historical and archaeological – which we possess for the experiences and roles of animals in the ancient world. Offering a broad picture of ancient cultures in the Mediterranean as part of a wider ecosystem, the volume is on an ambitious scale. It covers a broad span of time, from the sacred animals of dynastic Egypt to the imagery of the lamb in early Christianity, and of region, from the fallow deer introduced and bred in Roman Britain to the Asiatic lioness and her cubs brought as a gift by the Elamites to the Great King of Persia. This sourcebook is essential for anyone wishing to understand the role of animals in the ancient world and support learning for one of the fastest growing disciplines in Classics.
