Wide Area Network - Management and Control By Onwuatuegwu Echezona
eBook (PDF): $12.99
Graduate school is not an easy process, and too many students are thwarted and intimidated by unsupportive or unskilled advisors, lack of knowledge about what graduate school is all about, inflexible... More > bureaucracies, and a myriad of other obstacles. At the end of the graduate program, students write a final paper that summarize their learning experience in the program and in the paper, they express what they have learned in the course of the program and what they plan to do with the acquired knowledge.

Atlanta, Early 1900s: An era when Southern parents cling to a custom of making decisions for their young upon reaching the age of 21 and often beyond. Two young women become friends across their...

Good Vibrations By CB Barrie
Paperback: $17.70
Prints in 3-5 business days
This story parodies the illogical and wholly unreasonable aspects of the way the law works. How its quest for ‘justice’ often leads to injustice, and how its rigid and inflexible approach... More > to ‘due process’ makes a mockery of fairness, and hands down bizarre judgements. The insistence that everything must be resolved in court under the public gaze, creates ridiculous situations that do nothing to dignify the rightness of the justice system. On the contrary, it shames it. Just such a story is that of Edmund Lincoln. It’s the fourth time ram raiders have wrecked Edmund Lincoln’s nationally famous audio and HI-Fi business, and he’s facing ruin. Exorbitant and restricted insurance, and the totally inept police investigations, mean he has little chance of recovering anything lost or receiving adequate recompense (....)< Less
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions By Edwin Abbott
eBook (ePub): $2.33
An amazing tale of life in 2D, first published in 1884. Flatland fits easily as a primer to Einstein’s work on general relativity as well as a companion piece to Orwell’s Animal Farm.... More > Originally published as a satirical commentary on Victorian-era social structures, Flatland later gained popularity for its description of alternate universes where the very fabric of existence was not a static fixture. The theme running through this innovative story is one of seeking an expansion in awareness, of not accepting imposed limitations no matter how inflexible and undeniable they may seem. The beauty of this story is found in the superficial simplicity of the tale and in the familiarity of the interactions of the characters, but mostly in the almost infinite twists and turns that can be taken in the minds of the reader as the deeper implications of the theoretical basis of Flatland’s existence, and the parallels with our own universe, are considered in the freedom of abstract thought.< Less

More > government administration managed by departments staffed with non-elected officials. Today, bureaucracy is the administrative system governing any large institution.Since being coined, the word "bureaucracy" has developed negative connotations.

The Everlasting Righteousness By Horatius Bonar
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Another quality eBook from Chapel Library, by Horatius Bonar (1808-1889). The Everlasting Righteousness gets right to the heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ. How can sinful people be right before a... More > holy God? God’s inflexible justice demands a perfect righteousness in His creatures; only the everlasting righteousness of the Son of God will suffice! His is sufficient because it is that of God Himself. When a sinner believes on Christ the Savior, his record of sins is erased on the basis of the substitutionary work of Christ on the cross, and Christ’s righteousness is freely reckoned to his account. This priceless gift is granted freely to the one who places his faith in the Person of Christ, not in his own merits, graces, or even faith itself. The sufficient righteousness of Chirst is the safe ground of peace and joy for the believer, as he looks not at anything in himself but the all-sufficient Lamb of God!< Less
The Mermaid and Her Sunflowers By Donald Weir
eBook (ePub): $0.99
A young mermaid princess learns the perpetual joy of sharing. The original intent for this story was to entertain my four-year-old daughter at bedtime. Upon completion, somehow, it took on deeper... More > meaning as a model of the “life well lived”. It's childlike imagery somehow eludes my pride, helping me to own my shortcomings, yet inspiring me, to live a life that offers more to others. Unfathomable, priceless truths can be shared with children in hopes of not only saving them from many heartaches, but to encourage them to live a life that makes a positive difference in the lives of others. I am resolved to remain childish enough to believe that the open, generous and yielding hand is imbued with infinite power that the hard-wielded, inflexible "iron fist of will" can never grasp. Thanks goes out to Taylor Leong for capturing the perfect image of the mermaid princess Catherine!< Less

More > this journey describes how TR’s unrelenting determination bridged the inflexible divide between Japan and Russia—two countries who could not muster the moral courage to embrace peace. The treaty fulfilled his foreign policy vision of a global balance of power among the major international nations at the turn of the twentieth century. Acclaimed worldwide as a peacemaker, he was recognized with the Nobel Peace Prize for his unique personal style of diplomacy of “speaking softly” rather than “carrying a big stick.” Highly relevant to the state of world affairs today and the challenge of America’s leadership role in global foreign policy.< Less
