FOR PAULA, ACCOMPANYING her merchant father on a trading voyage to Istanbul is a dream come true. They have come to this city of trade on a special mission to purchase a most rare artifact—a gift from the ancient goddess, Cybele, to her followers. It’s the only remnant of a lost, pagan cult. But no sooner have they arrived when it becomes clear they may be playing at a dangerous game. A colleague and friend of Paula’s father is found murdered. There are rumors of Cybele’s cult reviving within the very walls of Istanbul. And most telling of all, signs have begun to appear to Paula, urging her to unlock Cybele’s secret. Meanwhile, Paula doesn’t know who she can trust in Istanbul, and finds herself drawn to two very different men. As time begins to run out, Paula realizes they may all be tied up in the destiny of Cybele’s Gift, and she must solve the puzzle before unknown but deadly enemies catch up to her. . . . From the Hardcover edition.

Along with bibliographic information, the expected date of publication and the names of literary agents for individual titles are provided. Starred reviews serve several functions: In the adult section, they mark potential bestsellers, major promotions, book club selections, and just very good books; in the children's section, they denote books of very high quality. The unsigned reviews manage to be discerning and sometimes quite critical.

Going Mad to Stay Sane

Self-destructive behaviour has traditionally been viewed in an entirely negative light. As a result, attempts are constantly made to 'fix' it without asking what its actual purpose may be. Going Mad to Stay Sane invites us to rethink our attitudes. It sets out to understand the soul's purpose in visiting violence upon itself; substance abuse, compulsive sexuality, obsessive dieting or the grandiose hauteur of a superiority complex all come under scrutiny. In analysing its roots and its manifestations, the author asks us to consider the possibility that the impulse to visit violence upon oneself may be the only means available for the soul under siege to preserve itself and state its distress. Self-destructiveness is a notoriously difficult phenomenon to bring to healing, not least because the various schools of psychology have such partisan attitudes towards it, approaching it from within the narrow parameters of their chosen theories. This book, rather than arguing for one perspective or another, finds a place for them all within the compass of a mythical tale: the story of King Midas, who wished for everything he touched to be turned to gold. Through the tale of King Midas, Andy White shows how our self-destructive urges can point the way to our salvation; this is the poetry and the paradox of the psyche.

The Secret American Dream The Creation of a New World Order with the Power to Abolish War Poverty and Disease

Until the present time there have been seven stages of United States expansionism - from the Federal unification of the original states to the 'New World Order' planned by US-led commercial elites before and after 1989. Extrapolating both from the author's distinctive reading of history and the evidence of President Obama's own speeches and actions, The Secret American Dream proposes that the US now faces a new, eighth, phase of expansion. In this, the traditional 'American Dream' of peace, social order and prosperity would be extended to all humankind. This ambitious plan - little known and understood outside President Obama's inner circle - would involve the creation of a benevolent World State initiated, but not dominated, by the United States. The Secret American Dream suggests that the first step in establishing the World State - a supranational authority with legal powers to abolish war and nuclear weapons - would be a visit by the US President to the UN General Assembly requesting a World Constitutional Convention. Under the President's proposals, the existing UN General Assembly would become an elected, 850-seat lower house, alongside a new World Senate and an executive called the World Commission. A senatorial World Openness Committee would control the world's commercial elites and harness their positive skills and energies. Founded on altruistic and philanthropic principles, the World State would bring global peace, disarmament and the opportunity of prosperity to every individual on Earth. The abolition of war and nuclear stockpiles would remove the threat of nuclear war and the possibility of ex-Soviet nuclear weapons falling into terrorist hands. It would also create a 'peace dividend' of nearly US$1.5 trillion per year, which could be spent on eliminating world poverty, disease and famine; on guaranteeing financial instability and a minimum income for all; and on solving energy and environmental problems. Initiatives by President Obama in a range of areas, such as his recent nuclear disarmament deal with Russia, show that he is already taking steps to implement this 'secret' American Dream.

No Mothers We

Alba Amoia traces the demythologization of maternity in Italy, from its presence in the fertility goddesses at the dawn of Italic society to its changing interpretations in today's culture. Women writers, she argues, have been especially responsible for this paradigm shift that is evidenced by the declining birth rate in Italy. The book explores the evolution of this feminine consciousness in relation to religion, sexuality, sociology and literature.
