Book Summary :

A collection of short stories from the Cartier Diamond Dagger winner and Sunday Times bestseller. John Harvey has been described as the master of British crime and in A Darker Shade of Blue he has collected together some of his very best writing. From the killing fields of the East Midlands to the mean streets of London, from the jazz clubs and clip joints of Soho to the barren fenlands of East Anglia, this is a world of broken families and run-down estates, revenge killings and prostitution, drugs, guns and corruption; a world of overstretched police forces and underpaid detectives, men and women who strive nonetheless for a kind of justice; a world in which everything, even friendship, has a price. Featuring characters like Frank Elder, who tried to turn his back on police work and failed; Jack Kiley, ex-copper and one-time professional footballer, now a London-based PI; and the renowned jazz loving and much-loved Detective Inspector Charlie Resnick, John Harvey's finely-crafted vignettes perfectly encapsulate life in the badlands of modern Britain.

Book Summary :

Law enforcement today is a very different world from what it was when I was on the job, with cell cameras, sights and sounds installed in all the patrol cars, the media down on the police, I would have lasted six months before getting fired or maybe even arrested! I have great sympathy for today's cops, especially the uniform guys who, from childhood, were taught by their parent to always try to do the right thing, to think on your feet and never ever back down from those wanting to harm you or your loved ones. My parents told me early on that I should do what I want as long as it's at nobody elses expense. I lived by that rule or at least always tried to. Was I a saint? I wasn't a saint, but I was a crusader. I can honestly say I never ever intentionally physically hurt anyone who didn't deserve getting hurt. Are there bad cops out there? You bet there are. There were bad cops from way back in our history. Cops that took great pleasure in beating people, cops stealing money from drug dealers, cops abusing their power. They will someday regret every action, every cent they stole, and every head they bashed in. That was never me. It sickens me to the point where I can't watch news coverage of cop abuse or corruption. But in defense of the vast majority of good and decent cops, their job is 100 percent tougher than when I fought crime. Hell, I received commodations for doing the same things the new cops are getting fired for. Who in their right mind would want this insane job? But for some there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I worked really hard and followed the light right into the detective unit. When ever do you ever read about an abusive detective? You take the uniform off, dress up in a suit and the public respects you. You're viewed as the elite, more intelligent and you command respect. Does it get any better than that? You bet it does. It's being an he undercover narcotic detective. He hides his badge and blends in with the unmade beds of America. He's backed up with a license to do pretty much anything he wants just as long as he doesn't cross the line. There are no cell phone cameras watching his every move. No one to claim police abuse. In my mind it's the best of the best. This book is a blend of all three of my lives as a cop. Three very different jobs heading for the very same goal. Take the bad guy off the streets and make the people around us as safe as possible. Not everyone who reads this will agree with the way I went about accomplishing that goal. Some will admire me and some won't. But just maybe I was somehow responsible for keeping you and your children alive. You never know. I thank my co-author Dr. Lou Girifalco for encouraging me to write this autobiography. I also want to give thanks to all of you I mention in the book and even though few true names are mentioned, you know who you are. Special thanks to my wife Terry for putting up with me through those tough years. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed doing it.

A Darker Shade of Oxford Blue - Set in Oxford, England, this sensual novel charts the developing relationship between Ethan Evans and Jason Birney—from their first encounter at the airport until Jason returns to the States three weeks later. The chapters are filled with a mixture of drama and angst as well as many sexually explicit scenes as the two young men become friends and lovers. Ethan is successful in his business life, but has been unlucky in love. This changes the moment he meets Jason—who has been asked to be a guest lecturer at Oxford University—and as they spend their first weekend sightseeing around Oxford, it is obvious the two are destined to be together. As they get to know each other, it becomes apparent that they went to the same school for a short while and now live in the same city. Ethan cannot recall seeing Jason before, but as the story progresses, Ethan realizes their meeting in Oxford may not be a coincidence after all.

Book Author : Christopher Etter
Book Publisher : iUniverse
Total Pages : 124

Book Summary :

Dyothelemic Christianity is based in the Christian theology of Dyo-thelitism, and advocates the importance of realigning the human will with divine will. This is done in the image of the perfection of this universal principle as depicted by traditional Christian theology. Jesus Christ is seen as the perfection of this universal principle, and He is seen as a model of perfection that one should seek alignment with. Along with the theory involved in this concept I am introducing an adapted Jewish mystical doctrine and system as a tool to help understand both the nature of this theology and human self. Through Jewish internal meditational science I am introducing a comprehensive new approach to both Christianity and realignment with the divine, as well as a four-fold completion of Christian Theological doctrine that will help harmonize all the principles involved in this text. Dyothelemic Christianity is based on the scientific theory that there exists a universal divine order and will and the through alignment of the human will with divine will, the human self is united with the divine Self as a harmony of natures and wills. Thus Christ means one person, one hypostasis, two harmonious non-contrary natures and two harmonious non-contrary wills.

Book Summary :

There has been much mystery surrounding what has been termed Qabalah, and much that has been written about the subject. Most texts have made Qabalah, and the Tree of Life, even more unapproachable than it already was. This text will attempt to introduce a new system of approach to the Tree of Life. I will be introducing a new way to understand and see this structure. This new system will make the Tree of Life more comprehensible, and make it much more practical. It will bring Qabalah into this new millennium by making it accessible to the minds of today, which are more able to comprehend the science of the mind than ever before. This new Qabalah will incorporate new neurological and psychological advances, as well as make the Tree of Life more practical to English speaking Qabalists.

Book Summary :

In this provocative book, Eddie S. Glaude Jr., one of our nation's rising young Afircan American intellectuals, makes an impassioned plea for black America to address its social problems by recourse to experience and with an eye set on the promise and potential of the future, rather than the fixed ideas and categories of the past. Central to Glaude's mission is a rehabilitation of philosopher John Dewey, whose ideas, he argues, can be fruitfully applied to a renewal of African American politics According to Glaude, Dewey's pragmatism, when attentive to the darker dimensions of life - or what we often speak of as the blues - can address many of the conceptual problems that plague contemporary African American discourse. How blacks think about themselves, how they imagine their own history, and how they conceive of their own actions can be rendered in ways that escape bad ways of thinking that assume a tendentious political unity among African Americans simply because they are black. Drawing deeply on black religious thought and literature, In a Shade of Blue seeks to dislodge such crude and simplistic thinking and replace it with a deeper understanding of and appreciation for black life in all its variety and intricacy. Glaude argues that only when black political leaders acknowledge such complexity can the real-life sufferings of many African Americans be remedied, an argument echoed in the recent rhetoric and optimism of the Barack Obama presidential campaign. In a Shade of Blue is a remarkable work of political commentary and to follow its trajectory is to learn how African Americans arrived at this critical moment in their cultural and political history and to envision where they might head in the twenty-first century.
