Violent Ends by Jessica Hawkins Book Summary:

The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess. Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear. Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind. All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know? This is a love story. But even love stories have to end.

Violent Delights, Violent Ends

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Violent Delights, Violent Ends by Nicole von Germeten Book Summary:

This study of sexuality in seventeenth-century Latin America takes the reader beneath the surface of daily life in a colonial city. Cartagena was an important Spanish port and the site of an Inquisition high court, a slave market, a leper colony, a military base, and a prison colony—colonial institutions that imposed order by enforcing Catholicism, cultural and religious boundaries, and prevailing race and gender hierarchies. The city was also simmering with illegal activity, from contraband trade to prostitution to heretical religious practices. Nicole von Germeten’s research uncovers scandalous stories drawn from archival research in Inquisition cases, criminal records, wills, and other legal documents. The stories focus largely on sexual agency and honor: an insult directed at a married woman causes a deadly street battle; a young doña uses sex to manipulate a lustful, corrupt inquisitor. Scandals like these illustrate the central thesis of this book: women in colonial Cartagena de Indias took control of their own sex lives and used sex and rhetoric connected to sexuality to plead their cases when they had to negotiate with colonial bureaucrats.

These Violent Delights

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong Book Summary:

Perfect for fans of The Last Magician and Descendant of the Crane, this heart-stopping debut is an imaginative Romeo and Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai, with rival gangs and a monster in the depths of the Huangpu River. The year is 1926, and Shanghai hums to the tune of debauchery. A blood feud between two gangs runs the streets red, leaving the city helpless in the grip of chaos. At the heart of it all is eighteen-year-old Juliette Cai, a former flapper who has returned to assume her role as the proud heir of the Scarlet Gang—a network of criminals far above the law. Their only rivals in power are the White Flowers, who have fought the Scarlets for generations. And behind every move is their heir, Roma Montagov, Juliette’s first love…and first betrayal. But when gangsters on both sides show signs of instability culminating in clawing their own throats out, the people start to whisper. Of a contagion, a madness. Of a monster in the shadows. As the deaths stack up, Juliette and Roma must set their guns—and grudges—aside and work together, for if they can’t stop this mayhem, then there will be no city left for either to rule.

Peace Begins When Family Violence Ends by Chelsea Elizabeth Greene Book Summary:

Family Violence-Domestic Violence-Child Abuse Not easy topics to read about, not easy to talk about, but you can heal and forgive and be completely free. You can be the beginning of peace. If you have experienced family violence at any level, it could be that your parents struggled with domestic violence, or your family just had feuds and disagreements that hurt one generation to the next. Family violence always hurts and perpetuates violence. It looks different behind the mask of illusions. Peace begins with you. You can change the negative impacts, heal the psychological, spiritual, and emotional wounds. You can mend the heart, heal the physical body, and ultimately free the psyche. When you heal, your family heals; when your family heals, your children and their children heal. Family violence is intergenerational, and peace begins when you say yes to peace. The violence stops when you have the courage to say yes to peace. Poetry is a tool; healing and restorative poetry is a creative art. This coffee-table poetry book, Peace Begins When Family Violence Ends, is an initiation and invitation for you to choose forgiveness and peace.

Beyond War

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Beyond War by Douglas P. Fry Book Summary:

A profoundly heartening view of human nature, Beyond War offers a hopeful prognosis for a future without war. Douglas P. Fry convincingly argues that our ancient ancestors were not innately warlike--and neither are we. He points out that, for perhaps ninety-nine percent of our history, for well over a million years, humans lived in nomadic hunter-and-gatherer groups, egalitarian bands where warfare was a rarity. Drawing on archaeology and fascinating recent fieldwork on hunter-gatherer bands from around the world, Fry debunks the idea that war is ancient and inevitable. For instance, among Aboriginal Australians, warfare was an extreme anomaly. Fry also points out that even today, when war seems ever present, the vast majority of us live peaceful, nonviolent lives. We are not as warlike as we think, and if we can learn from our ancestors, we may be able to move beyond war to provide real justice and security for the world.

Violent Triumphs

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Violent Triumphs by Jessica Hawkins Book Summary:

The “heartstopping” conclusion to the USA Today bestselling White Monarch series. I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want. Now, I can’t fathom life without my king. I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or the Calavera cartel. This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it . . . and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice. But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes. This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly—and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.

The Golden Bough

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Golden Bough by James George Frazer Book Summary:

A classic study of the beliefs and institutions of mankind, and the progress through magic and religion to scientific thought, The Golden Bough has a unique status in modern anthropology and literature. First published in 1890, The Golden Bough was eventually issued in a twelve-volume edition (1906-15) which was abridged in 1922 by the author and his wife. That abridgement has never been reconsidered for a modern audience. In it some of the more controversial passages were dropped, including Frazer's daring speculations on the Crucifixion of Christ. For the first time this one-volume edition restores Frazer's bolder theories and sets them within the framework of a valuable introduction and notes. A seminal work of modern anthropolgy, The Golden Bough also influenced many twentieth-century writers, including D H Lawrence, T S Eliot, and Wyndham Lewis. Its discussion of magical types, the sacrificial killing of kings, the dying god, and the scapegoat is given fresh pertinence in this new edition. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

The Heart of His Mystery

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Heart of His Mystery by Waterfield John Waterfield,John Waterfield Book Summary:

Shakespeare has traditionally been viewed as Queen Elizabeth's 'poet laureate', and as the official mouthpiece of the Elizabethan age. But the Elizabethan world was torn apart by the religious divisions initiated by the Reformation, and vitiated by the government's merciless persecution of Catholics. As it was the victors who wrote the history, the English Reformation has been portrayed as a peaceful transition enjoying majority support, when in fact it was nothing of the kind. Elizabeth's regime was a police state which sanctioned the use of torture, where Catholic priests and those who harboured them were liable to summary and bloody execution. The persecution of Catholics was continued by James I, evoking the violent response of the Gunpowder Plot. "The Heart of His Mystery" examines Shakespeare's life and work against this background. There is strong biographical evidence that he was himself a Catholic, and a detailed survey of his plays and poems shows that his imagination was intimately bound up with his religious faith. When we realise that his human compassion grew from his membership in a persecuted community, we can glimpse the mystery he has encrypted in his works and we come closer to understanding the hidden heart of Shakespeare the man.

Hannah and Miriam

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Hannah and Miriam by David Linwood Book Summary:

The Women Who Founded Christianity A Trilogy Volume 1 Hannah and Miriam by David Linwood An historical novel of a Judaean family during the reign of Augustus Caesar. Chapters 1 5 Hannah is a skilled physician and surgeon who maintains a clinic at her home. Her daughter, Miriam, is apprenticed to Hannah, learning the medical arts, and apothecary skills. Hannahs husband, Joachim, is a timber merchant. Because of the incursion of self-serving warlords and bandits in the countryside, Joachim must constantly defend his ox trains while hauling the timbers to market. Joachim and the Roman Tribune Cornelius join forces to ambush the principal, notorious bandit Judas ben Hezekiah. After the ambush, Miriam performs difficult surgeries in the field, and saves the life of a severely wounded friend. Chapters 6 11 Miriam reveals to Hannah, that she has been visited by the Angel Gabriel. The angel has announced that Miriam will give birth to a son, Joshua, and that he will be an exceptional child, dedicated to a great purpose. When Joachim is informed by Hannah of the Annunciation of Gabriel, he immediately warns Hannah that Miriam is in great danger. Unscrupulous competitors of Joachim in Sepphoris will bring the ultra-orthodox authorities down on Miriams head if she reveals that she is with child, and not lawfully betrothed or married. The authorities will laugh her to scorn if she reveals her visitation by Gabriel. They will have her flogged for adultery, and sent to a madhouse or even stoned. To protect his daughter, Joachim suggests that a long-time business associate of his, Yosef of Nazareth, a carpenter and house builder, might be interested in a betrothal. Miriam is apprised of her fathers plan, and agrees to withhold judgment until she has had a chance to meet Yosef and see what kind of person he is. Joachim, Hannah and Miriam travel to Nazareth under the pretext of visiting Yosefs medicinal herb garden. The garden belonged to Yosefs wife, Deborah, who died in childbirth. Yosef welcomes them to his home. He reveals that he has been visited in a special dream, by the Angel Gabriel, who told him that Joachim and Hannah and Miriam would be coming to visit, and they would ask him to consider a betrothal with Miriam. Miriam has been watching Yosef closely since they arrived at his house. She is greatly drawn to him, both physically as a mature, handsome man, and also as a very spiritual person. She announces that she agrees to be betrothed and married to Yosef, if he is willing. Yosef is likewise greatly attracted to the young, beautiful girl, Miriam, and admits he has been so very lonely since his Deborah died three years previously. He agrees to a betrothal which is a lawful trial marriage that includes the possibility of children and that will protect Miriam from the ultra-orthodox authorities. Yosef, with Miriam and her parents, visits Rabbi Shmuel ben Zeroah in Nazareth, to be betrothed. Chapters 12 16 Yosef with Miriam, and Joachim with Hannah, and their other children, Chavah and Yeshai, travel to Jerusalem for the Passover Holiday. Miriam and Joseph are wedded in Jerusalem. Chapters 16 23 King Herod has begun to seize every prominent man in the cities all through Judaea. He has not harmed them but has imprisoned them. None of the men has opposed Herod in any way. The economy of Judaea becomes greatly depressed and the flow of taxes to Rome is reduced to a mere trickle of gold. Herod does not care he is dying. He knows th

A Doomsday Reader

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Doomsday Reader by Ted Daniels Book Summary:

The approach of the year 2000 has made the study of apocalyptic movements trendy. But groups anticipating the end of the world will continue to predict Armageddon even after the calendar clicks to triple 0s. A Doomsday Reader brings together pronouncements, edicts, and scriptures written by prominent apocalyptic movements from a wide range of traditions and ideologies to offer an exceptional look into their belief systems. Focused on attaining paradise, millenarianism often anticipates great, cosmic change. While most think of religious belief as motivating such fervor, Daniels' comparative approach encompasses secular movements such as environmentalism and the Montana Freemen, and argues that such groups are often more political than religious in nature. The book includes documents from groups such as the Branch Davidians, the Order of the Solar Temple, Heaven's Gate, and white supremacists. Each document is preceded by a substantive introduction placing the movement and its beliefs in context. This important overview of contemporary politics of the End will remain a valuable resource long after the year 2000 has come and gone.

The Path to Salvation

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Path to Salvation by Heather Selma Gregg Book Summary:

In the wake of 9/11, policy analysts, journalists, and academics have tried to make sense of the rise of militant Islam, particularly its role as a motivating and legitimating force for violence against the United States. The general perception is that Islam is more violence-prone than other religions and that scripture and beliefs within the faith, such as the doctrines of jihad and martyrdom, demonstrate the inherently violent nature of Islam. Here, however, Heather Selma Gregg draws comparisons across religious traditions to investigate common causes of religious violence. The author sets side-by-side examples of current and historic Islamic violence with similar acts by Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and Hindu adherents. Based on her findings, Gregg challenges the assumption that religious violence stems from a faithÆs scriptures. Instead, Gregg argues that religious violence is the result of interpretations of a religionÆs beliefs and scriptures. Interpretations calling for violence in the name of a faith are the product of individuals, but it is important to understand the conditions under which these violent interpretations of a religion occur. These conditions must be considered by identifying who is interpreting the religion and by what authority; the social, political, and economic circumstances surrounding these violent interpretations; and the believability of these interpretations by members of religious communities.

21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook by Rhona C. Free Book Summary:

Interest in economics is at an all-time high. Among the challenges facing the nation is an economy with rapidly rising unemployment, failures of major businesses and industries, and continued dependence on oil with its wildly fluctuating price. Americans are debating the proper role of the government in company bailouts, the effectiveness of tax cuts versus increased government spending to stimulate the economy, and potential effects of deflation. Economists have dealt with such questions for generations, but they have taken on new meaning and significance. Tackling these questions and encompassing analysis of traditional economic theory and topics as well as those that economists have only more recently addressed, 21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook is intended to meet the needs of several types of readers. Undergraduate students preparing for exams will find summaries of theory and models in key areas of micro and macroeconomics. Readers interested in learning about economic analysis of an issue as well students embarking on research projects will find introductions to relevant theory and empirical evidence. And economists seeking to learn about extensions of analysis into new areas or about new approaches will benefit from chapters that introduce cutting-edge topics. To make the book accessible to undergraduate students, models have been presented only in graphical format (minimal calculus) and empirical evidence has been summarized in ways that do not require much background in statistics or econometrics. It is thereby hoped that chapters will provide both crucial information and inspiration in a non-threatening, highly readable format.

Source of Wisdom

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Source of Wisdom by Frederick M. Biggs,Charles Darwin Wright,Thomas N. Hall Book Summary:

As one of the most prolific and influential scholars in the field, Thomas D. Hill has made an indelible mark on the study of Old English literature. In celebration of his distinguished career, the editors of Source of Wisdom have assembled a wide-ranging collection of nineteen original essays on Old English poetry and prose as well as early medieval Latin, touching upon many of Hill's specific research interests. Among the topics examined in this volume are the Christian-Latin sources of Old English texts, including religious and 'sapiential' poetry, and prose translations of Latin writings. Old English poems such as Beowulf, The Dream of the Rood, and The Wife's Lament are treated, throughout, to thematic, textual, stylistic, lexical, and source analysis. Prose writers of the period such as King Alfred and Wærferth, as well as medieval Latin writers such as Bede and Pseudo-Methodius are also discussed. As an added feature, the volume includes a bibliography of publications by Thomas D. Hill. Source of Wisdom is, ultimately, a contribution to the understanding of medieval English literature and the textual traditions that contributed to its development.

Free to Leave, Free to Stay

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Free to Leave, Free to Stay by Jana Marguerite Bennett,Melissa Musick Nussbaum Book Summary:

Our known world, the world of twenty-first century Americans, is shaped and defined by consumer choice. The premise of consumer choice is that somewhere the perfect fit between product and purchaser exists. In the books on changing traditions the consumerist tone prevails--fundamentalists looking for an even more literal interpretation of Scripture, Protestants "going home" to Rome, feminists heading to the womyncentric sacred grove, conservatives fleeing inclusive rites, Catholics embracing the independent seeker church. But the consumerist impulse masks the kind of prayer and discernment necessary for living in Christian community and for following God. Twenty-first century Christians do make choices, but the hope is that they do so because they follow God. How then is one to answer the question of whether to stay or leave? Through meditating on the fruits of the Spirit that Paul addressed to the church at Galatia, a community that had several of its members wondering whether to stay or leave, Bennett and Nussbaum offer sage reflections about what it means to be led into and out of Christian communions.

Laughter Out of Place

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Laughter Out of Place by Donna M. Goldstein Book Summary:

Donna M. Goldstein presents a hard-hitting critique of urban poverty and violence and challenges much of what we think we know about the "culture of poverty" in this compelling read. Drawing on more than a decade of experience in Brazil, Goldstein provides an intimate portrait of everyday life among the women of the favelas, or urban shantytowns in Rio de Janeiro, who cope with unbearable suffering, violence and social abandonment. The book offers a clear-eyed view of socially conditioned misery while focusing on the creative responses—absurdist and black humor—that people generate amid daily conditions of humiliation, anger, and despair. Goldstein helps us to understand that such joking and laughter is part of an emotional aesthetic that defines the sense of frustration and anomie endemic to the political and economic desperation among residents of the shantytown.

Violent Democracy

Violent Ends Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Violent Democracy by Daniel Ross Book Summary:

This fascinating and provocative 2005 book will change the way you think about democracy. Challenging conventional wisdom, Daniel Ross shows how from its origins and into its globalized future, violence is an integral part of the democratic system. He draws on the examples of global terrorism and security, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the relation of colonial powers to indigenous populations, and the treatment of asylum seekers. His analysis of these controversial issues moves beyond the comfortable stances of both left and right to show that democracy is violent, from its beginning and at its heart.
