Most human beings are persons, and all persons are agents, made such by their intentional actions. The nature of persons, their rights and the laws by which they should be governed are critically... More > examined in this book, with Ubuntu, the African equivalent of personhood, used as an example; so is the nature of human action and the thorny question of free will. Morality is discussed from the point of view of prevailing ethical theories and practices, and from that of the conflict between sublime religious theory and its deplorable practice in most quarters. In contrast, the more commendable practice and equally reputable and dogma-free theory of humanism is presented. Ultimately, humanity is free to choose the path that it will follow, but the choice that it makes today will have telling effects on its progeny and the legacy that they will inherit.< Less
School Pushouts: A Plague of Hopelessness Perpetrated Zombie Schools By Armand A. Fusco Ed.D.
Paperback: $27.99

The book documents the dysfunctional educational conditions typically found in urban schools—deplorable low achievement, huge attainment gaps, and extremely high dropout rates. The schools seem... More > impotent in solving these problems that have existed for decades, and it is getting worse despite numerous reforms. In essence, the cotton plantations have been replaced with school plantations (children held in the bondage of failing schools) and their crop is harvested by the prison plantations. Yet, the solutions are simple and inexpensive as demonstrated by turnaround schools that defy the excuses that money and socio-economic conditions are the culprits. The resources needed are all available; what is missing is competent and courageous leadership. In the meantime, the plague of hopelessness remains steadfast.< Less
Romantic Ireland Volume 1 By M. F. and B. McM. Mansfield

ONE hundred or more years ago, when Arthur Young first wrote his journal of a tour in Ireland, those who had Ireland’s welfare most at heart deplored the fact that “her greatness was... More > still practically unexplored, and the early history of her brighter days excited no interest even among her own people.” Doctor Johnson felt this himself when he wrote, “I have long wished that Irish literature were cultivated, as Ireland is known by tradition to be a seat of piety and learning, ... and surely it would be very acceptable to be further informed regarding a people at once so ancient and illustrious.” It has been said, too, — the words are taken from the mouth of a poor parish priest, — that “the Celt is melting like the snow: he lingers in little patches in the corner of the field, and hands are stretched on every side. It is human to stretch hands to fleeting things, but as well might we try to retain the snow.”< Less

Here is proof that contemporary literary fiction can be one hell of an engrossing read. At first glance these 10 stories appear diverse.

Prodigal Village: “A Christmas Tale” By Irving Bacheller
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The day that Henry Smix met and embraced Gasoline Power and went up Main Street hand in hand with it is not yet forgotten. It was a hasty marriage, so to speak, and the results of it were truly... More > deplorable. Their little journey produced an effect on the nerves and the remote future history of Bingville. They rushed at a group of citizens who were watching them, scattered it hither and thither, broke down a section of Mrs. Risley's picket fence and ran over a small boy. At the end of their brief misalliance, Gasoline Power seemed to express its opinion of Mr. Smix by hurling him against a telegraph pole and running wild in the park until it cooled its passion in the fountain pool. In the language of Hiram Blenkinsop, the place was badly "smixed up." Yet Mr. Smix was the object of unmerited criticism. He was like many other men in that quiet village—slow, deliberate, harmless and good-natured. The action of his intellect was not at all like that of a gasoline engine.< Less
Faith the Victory By John McGill & Dr William Peters
Paperback: $23.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Faith The Victory by Bishop John McGill, Confederate Bishop of Richmond, Virginia, was written for Catholics in the Confederate States of America due to the dearth of Catholic books caused by the... More > Yankee blockade. He writes: “The actual condition of the country, because of the deplorable and sanguinary war now waged, and of the blockade which is enforced, prevents us from procuring the many excellent works, which have been written and published elsewhere, for explaining and defending the doctrines of religion.” Bp. McGill presents an explanation of Catholic doctrine for Catholics and non-Catholics who hold to the old orthodox Protestant beliefs and traditions, and want to know more about the development and meaning of Christian doctrine. A non-polemical work, the Bishop provides a rational explanation of sometimes difficult subjects. It is a clear concise summary of doctrinal points of interest to all Christians, without being either too brief, or tedious.< Less
The Black Bag By Louis Joseph Vance
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Upon a certain dreary April afternoon in the year of grace, 1906, the apprehensions of Philip Kirkwood, Esquire, Artist-peintre, were enlivened by the discovery that he was occupying that singularly... More > distressing social position, which may be summed up succinctly in a phrase through long usage grown proverbial: "Alone in London." These three words have come to connote in our understanding so much of human misery, that to Mr. Kirkwood they seemed to epitomize absolutely, if not happily, the various circumstances attendant upon the predicament wherein he found himself. Inevitably an extremist, because of his youth, (he had just turned twenty-five), he took no count of mitigating matters, and would hotly have resented the suggestion that his case was anything but altogether deplorable and forlorn. That he was not actually at the end of his resources went for nothing; he held the distinction a quibble, mockingly immaterial,—like the store of guineas in his pocket,..< Less
