Now I can turn my eyes toward the mill again, and watch the unresting wheel sending out its diamond jets of water.

And that queer white cur with the brown ear seems to be leaping and barking in ineffectual remonstrance with the wheel; perhaps he is jealous because his playfellow in the beaver bonnet is so rapt in its movement. It is time the little playfellow went in, I think; and there is a very bright fire to tempt her: the red light shines out under the deepening gray of the sky. It is time, too, for me to leave off resting my arms on the cold stone of this bridge.... ISBN: 978-1-257-85703-6< Less

Missing Emilie By Michael E. Lloyd
Paperback: $19.83
Prints in 3-5 business days
Arthur Narone is desperate to forget one awful episode from his sorry, post-war orphan's childhood, but he simply cannot. Perhaps that is why he has taken to late-night joyriding around the streets... More > and hillsides of Nice in expensive borrowed cars. But that largely harmless pastime has got him into far greater trouble than a caution or two from the local gendarmerie. Arthur has been talent-spotted by the lowest of the Riviera underworld, and he is made an "offer he can't refuse" by the similarly press-ganged leader of a makeshift bunch of putative bank robbers. The "encouragement" for his co-operation consists largely of dire threats to the well-being of his girlfriend Emilie, cabaret musician extraordinaire. He decides not to burden her with his latest troubles, but when the robbery goes all wrong she is dragged unwittingly into the dangerous aftermath ...< Less

Nicaragua has been in chaos since April 2018, when what started as protests by students against Ortega’s social security reforms turned to mass violence. An estimated 500 civilians have been... More > killed since paramilitary forces began using weapons to control protests. The youngest victim was a one-year-old shot in the street as he held his father’s hand. Illegal detentions and political imprisonments have been estimated at over 1,200 since then; and over 30,000 Nicaraguans have fled the country. Economists estimate that more than 215,000 jobs have been lost since the beginning of the social uprising; leaving the tourism industry in ruins, which is among the country’s main source of income. To a large extent Ortega's policies are responsible for this human rights crisis; and the result of his refusal to receive aid from the international community. Hence this book endeavours to improve human rights and social equality in Nicaragua; so that peace and democracy can be manifested in this beautiful country again.< Less

The Bookroom Murders By Alan Berg
Paperback: List Price: $16.00 $12.80 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
The police shooting of Ferguson teenager Michael Brown again raises the situation of racial unrest in America. My novel, The Bookroom Murders, depicts racial confrontation in an inner city high... More > school, where police use excessive force to deal with the situation, and students are shot and mauled by dogs. Also,The Bookroom Murders is not your typical mystery. It is a coming of age story, involving a battle of the sexes and an odyssey of self-realization. The teacher narrator is intelligent, quirky, self-deprecating, and irreverent. The story has elements of a teacher's worst nightmare. And this is not the typical teacher-against-the-odds victory cliche'. Instead, it is violent, ironic, darkly humorous, sexually explicit and bizarre. The story is multi-ethnic, with strong female characters--Chinese, Latina and Italian--as well as a sexist teacher, who is not a paragon, and happens to be a murder suspect.< Less

Some of the dominant issues were: a rapidly growing student population that was becoming more diverse and the need to provide a more diversified faculty and district administrators. The Milwaukee City School System was also in district court defending itself against a de jure segregation charge. A much-needed increase in the financing of the school system was legally prevented by mileage limitation, resulting among other problems, a noncompetitive salary schedule. Strengthening the relationship between the Milwaukee community and the school system was an imperative. The addresses in the volumes were all inclusive, with some repetition and redundancy to present and interpret educational needs as perceived by the author during this historic period.< Less
