And there’s something else: for the last few years, Joe has wanted to have sex with another man. A chance encounter with a trainer at his gym launches Joe on a series of encounters – some casual, some serious, some comic, some dangerous, all of them erotic in the way that only James Lear can make them. Soon Joe is living a double life: breadwinner and father by day, sexual adventurer by night?his hunting ground the online dating sites that give him access to anyone and anything he wants.

And will he ever find someone to love?

Mediation, as a procedure to assist couples in dealing with the problems incident to their separation and divorce, is still relatively new in the United States. For the would-be practitioner, that poses certain problems. Divorce mediation cannot provide a long history of generally accepted procedures. Nor is there even a body of information to which would-be practitioners can turn for instruction or guidance. And, of course, there are no established schools that can train or prepare a practitioner to do this work. To make matters worse, the situation is likely to remain in this state for some time to come. Given this fact, it was felt that it would be useful for practitioners (even for those already engaged in divorce mediation) to have a handbook which would trace a typical mediation from its inception to its conclusion and which would provide them with the substantive informa tion they need to know in order to do divorce mediation. It is hoped that this handbook will fill this need. Having said that, however, it must be acknowledged that the purpose of this book is very much beyond that. Until now, divorce mediation in the United States has been shaped principally by such books as O. J. Coogler's Structured Mediation in Divorce Settlements: A Handbook for Marital Mediators, 1 and John Haynes' Divorce Mediation: 2 A Practical Guide for Therapists and Counselors.

"Brown is the Butterfly" is a personal reflection of Christine's journey through love. Through poetry and song, she shares her insights about love's trials and tribulations in a story of a poetess who befriends a musician. It is a friendship that blossoms into love which tries and questions destinies, for the musician is already committed. He must choose not only between two women but also on a dream to pursue his career in music. A line is drawn in the sand as he is caught in a torrid affair. It is through the poetess and her voice we take this journey as she begins to understand his silence to her is his contemplation on choice. We ride her waves day-to-day, moment-to-moment as he comes and goes from her life. It is not just a reflection on romantic love or adultery, but a promise of hope in love through spirituality and motherhood. Even in love's darkest hour, hope and faith remain pushing towards a new sunrise. The poetess in Christine Redman-Waldeyer's tale, through her inner strength and faith, undergoes a metamorphosis. The essence of her love opened a door to creativity. It is in this rebirth of spirit that the poetess forms new wings, and "Brown is the Butterfly" takes flight. --Melissa A.

Among the more intriguing documentary sources from late medieval Europe are pardon letters—petitions sent by those condemned for serious crimes to monarchs and princes in France and the Low Countries in the hopes of receiving a full pardon. The fifteenth-century Burgundian Low Countries and duchy of Burgundy produced a large cache of these petitions, from both major cities (Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, and Dijon) and rural communities. In Honor, Vengeance, and Social Trouble, Peter Arnade and Walter Prevenier present the first study in English of these letters to explore and interrogate the boundaries between these sources’ internal, discursive properties and the social world beyond the written text. Honor, Vengeance, and Social Trouble takes the reader out onto the streets and into the taverns, homes, and workplaces of the Burgundian territories, charting the most pressing social concerns of the day: everything from family disputes and vendettas to marital infidelity and property conflicts—and, more generally, the problems of public violence, abduction and rape, and the role of honor and revenge in adjudicating disputes. Arnade and Prevenier examine why the right to pardon was often enacted by the Burgundian dukes and how it came to compete with more traditional legal means of resolving disputes. In addition, they consider the pardon letter as a historical source, highlighting the limitations and pitfalls of relying on documents that are, by their very nature, narratives shaped by the petitioner to seek a favored outcome. The book also includes a detailed case study of a female actress turned prostitute. An example of microhistory at its best, Honor, Vengeance, and Social Trouble will challenge scholars while being accessible to students in courses on medieval and early modern Europe or on historiography.
This is a real-life story. You will read and get an in-depth look of my childhood, family, my teen years, the years I spent in the service, running a business and all the good and bad in my life, that I had, clear up till I had lost it, where I was put in the hospital and then diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder/schizo affective disorder. It all started forty days before Easter of 2006, having visions or insights into the Bible while making a new law for the people, also having vibes and connections with spirits that allowed me to believe that the end of the world was upon us. This true life story takes you on a journey, which is believed to have come from God. During the second part of the story, I fight against evil or Satan himself, which makes me believe that I may possibly be the Antichrist if I don’t do the right thing in order to save the world. I would tell people that I’m the “Chosen One”—Jesus Christ, the Second Coming, the Messiah, the Son of God or even the Lamb of God.
He and Him is an autobiography dealing with both psychology and archaeology in the author's life. He was born during the Great Depression. His parents were an Ohio .farmerette and a man from the Tennessee mountains who had become an alcoholic on moonshine whiskey. It was a dysfunctional family from the start. The mom soon developed very serious emotional problems apparently because she wasn't satisfied with the man whom she had married. When the author was a six-year-old boy she told him that she planned to take him and leave his dad. However, she did the exact opposite and had more kids. Upon adding more offspring to the household; the author, then seven years old, became the victim of terrible physical and emotional abuse, as well as complete neglect. From the age of seven the author had to essentially raise himself. He tried to avoid his parents as much as possible by spending his days in the fields and meadows by himself collecting butterflies, pretty rocks, and looking for prehistoric Indian arrowheads. After finding a few Indian arrowheads on farms in Ohio he started a collection of Indian arrowheads and other artifacts at a very young age. His collection eventually turned into a very renowned private museum as he got a little older. When the author was almost thirteen years old his parents quit farming and started operating their own country store in a different community. Chapter 3 in this book describes life in country stores in Ohio during the 1940s and 1950s. The author lived in such a country store environment until he turned eighteen and went away to college. He was the first of any of his relatives to ever go away to college. His mother furnished him money to attend college, but he did it completely on his own with absolutely no family encouragement or support to get a degree. From "the time that the author started getting educated his mom refused to ever call him by his given name. She only referred to him as either "He or Him." Others in the family soon became full of covetousness towards him because they perceived that he had advantages which they didn't have. Competitive jealousy of others in the household mounted, their believinq that they had to try to outdo the educated member of the family. A long, drawn-out, bitter family war against the author ensued. Disrespect for the author's higher education continued in later years by not only the third generation, but also by in-laws who didn't even know the author when he was in college! After receiving both a BS degree and an MA degree in geology, with a master's thesis dealing with archaeology of Archaic Indian sites near his hometown, the author took a temporary summer job as a national park ranger at Canyon de Chelly National Monument at Chinle, Arizona. Canyon de Chelly is located in the center of the vast Navajo Indian Reservation. Getting to live and work in such a beautiful natural area was like a dream come true. That first summers work at Canyon de Chelly motivated the author to eventually work as a seasonal park ranger in six other national parks and monuments. After working at Canyon de Chelly for one summer , the author ended up going back to Arizona where he lived for ten more years. He married a woman in Kansas who he hardly even knew, then he went to the University of Arizona where he spent two years working towards a PhD degree. After that, he and his wife spent eight more years back on the Navajo Indian Reservation. During those years on the reservation he taught Navajo Indian children on a substitute teaching certificate. It was a full-time job in the winter. Almost all of his students were Navajo Indians. He taught all grade levels from kindergarten through high school. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 of this book are devoted to stories about life in remote areas of the reservation in the 1960s and 1970s. At that time the author's doctor and grocery stores were 145 miles from where he lived. There we

The Noblest Vol. II is a collection of some of the work of a small group of people from different walks of life who came together in a writing workshop given at the Noble Maritime Collection. Together, we shared our writings, we listened to each other, and we grew into a family of friends. As you read their thoughts, their ideas, their stories, you will come to glimpse them as I have been privileged to do. Their poems, stories, and memoirs speak for themselves. They have opened their hearts and souls in their writings. Tread softly as you read our works and enter into our lives. We hope our writing speaks to you and that you find a friend or two in these pages and that the words conjure memories, stimulate imagination, take you to special places, and give you pause to think.

The Edwardian period experienced a particularly vibrant periodical culture, with phenomenal growth in the numbers of titles published that were either aimed specifically at women, or else saw women as a key section of their readership or contributor group. It was an era of political ferment in which a number of 'progressive' traditions were formulated, shaped or abandoned, including socialism, feminism, modernism, empire politics, trade unionism and welfarism. Organized around some of the central themes of political thought and utopian thinking, this impressive collection gathers together classic articles from key periodicals. The set presents a comprehensive sourcebook of readings on Edwardian/Progressive era feminist thought, exploring the intervention of the radical public intellectuals working in these traditions in North America and the UK from 1900-1918.
The writer of this book is an American citizen, was in the military overseas, and was imprisoned in a foreign system. A new language had to be learned all the way around; the writer had to learn more than one language of the host. There were conversations with various liberation groups from all over Europe, including England, the isles, and even Spain, just to name a few. The Baader-Meinhof Gang, the Red Army Faction, the Second June Movement Iran had chased these liberators to Germany, and the community was full of political prisoners, and the police state was very active. Even people from the African continent escaped NATO-supplied reactionaries who were equipped with Western weaponry, especially from Angola and South Africa, to name a few. So much of the conversations revolved around capitalism, communism, socialism, different dictatorships, and apartheid and religious zealots who hated everyone but themselves, but really, if you hate anyone, you hate yourself. So finding the square root of negative one is like finding the solution to all these problems that many people have. In an ordinary way, there is no solution, and all answers given seemed to be false. Yet because of I, there is truth to be told. So this math problem translates into social relations in all countries and in many prisons.
How far would you go to be the perfect mother? The hilarious Wife in the North by Judith O'Reilly, based on her enormously popular blog, recounts one woman's attempt to move her family and her life from cosmopolitan London to rural Northumberland. Maybe hormones ate her brain. How else did Judith's husband persuade her to give up her career and move from her beloved London to Northumberland with two toddlers in tow? Pregnant with number 3 Judith is about to discover that there are one or two things about life in the country that no one told her about: that she'd be making friends with people who believed in the four horsemen of the apocalypse; that running out of petrol could be a near death experience and that the closest thing to an ethnic minority would be a redhead. Judith tries to do that simple thing that women do, make hers a happy family. A family that might live happily ever after. Possibly even up North ...
