In October 1999, my wife and I decided to put our best friend, Sparky to sleep. I began to reminisce about all the crazy things the dog was involved in. As one who always enjoyed being a storyteller, I kidded my wife and told her that I was going to write the dog’s memoirs. I began writing all the funny and crazy things the dog did over the 20 years he was with us. Sparky’s stores were funny, serious and there was one story about Sparky saving my wife’s life. As I was writing Sparky’s stories, I began to really enjoy doing so. After I finished writing about the events of Sparky, I began thinking about all the funny dog stories, other funny stories, and profoundly serious events I went through as a Postal worker. For years I told those stores to anyone who would listen. Since I enjoyed telling those stories, I decided to follow-up my dog stories with my personal stories, to include my military experiences. In titling my book, I did so because I always resented the term, “Going Postal,” mainly because the term implies dangerous or unstable people work for the Postal Service. However, as we have become to learn, there are crazies everywhere. With that in mind, I thought I would have a play on words and author a book, entitled “Going Postal”, beginning with my military experience, to hopefully grab the attention of the prospective reader. The stories in this book are funny, daring, disappointing, revealing, insightful, and entertaining. The stores also reveal racial sensitive issues I had to navigate. You will travel with me through Army basic training, advance infantry training, paratrooper jump school training, Special Warfare school, and challenging situations I met in Going Postal.

Have you ever wondered what your letter carrier is doing when you're not looking? What do some of them do with the mail when theyre all alone in their vehicle or working the graveyard shift at night? Did you ever have mail disappear or mail that looks tempered with? Are you comfortable with the mailman who delivers your mail? Are any of the workers criminals, peeping toms or child molesters? GOING POSTAL answers all of those questions and gives true examples of what has happened in cities around the country. What are the unions in the Postal Service really like? Are they there to help the Postal Service to become stronger and better or are they simply there to undermine the business and get employees off the hook when they commit heinous behaviors? What about higher level management at the upper levels of the organization? Do they treat their employees well or is profane abuse a common behavior by those in charge? Does the Postal Service employee dangerous individuals, especially persons that may be a hazard to your children? The book tells it all in a true, accurate format. A must read!

Going Postal examines the phenomenon of rage murder that took America by storm in the early 1980's and has since grown yearly in body counts and symbolic value. By looking at massacres in schools and offices as post-industrial rebellions, Mark Ames is able to juxtapose the historical place of rage in America with the social climate after Reaganomics began to effect worker's paychecks. But why high schools? Why post offices? Mark Ames examines the most fascinating and unexpected cases, crafting a convincing argument for workplace massacres as modern day slave rebellions. Like slave rebellions, rage massacres are doomed, gory, sometimes inadvertently comic, and grossly misunderstood. Going Postal seeks to contextualize this violence in a world where working isn't—and doesn’t pay—what it used to. Part social critique and part true crime page-turner, Going Postal answers the questions asked by commentators on the nightly news and films such as Bowling for Columbine.

In 2017 the queer and gender-diverse community of Australia undertook an incredible campaign of everyday activism around marriage equality. As individuals and collectives we shared our personal stories with our networks – from social media, to workplace to school playground. We purged our tears and our rage – documented as poems, articles, photos, short stories, status updates, tweets, blog posts, political cartoons, and short videos. Many of us were shocked at the vitriol directed at us, to our faces, in our letter boxes and online, even in ‘secret’ Facebook groups. Many of us were hurt by the unspoken tensions and the conversations we couldn’t have with some of our nearest and dearest. By the end, we were truly exhausted. Yes, the vote was for equality. Yes, the legislation went through. Yes, we can get married now. But many of us have been left wondering whether it was worth it. Many of us are living with the ongoing grief of having our lives, and those of our children, be up for public debate. Whether you are ‘gay, straight, black, or white’—or beyond reductive binaries—this edited collection guides the reader through the highs and lows of the marriage equality postal vote. Combining serious scholarship, humour, manifestos, and simple tales of childhood, readers are flung into the emotional melting pot that constitutes a definitive turning point in Australian queer histories. These feelings are sticky and sometimes traumatic, but there is also catharsis in this compilation. This is also a counter-archive, one that consciously amplifies some of the voices that were drowned out by dominant campaigns, including those that questioned the value of marriage as a patriarchal institution or resisted the ‘we are just like you’ discourses that obscured complex families and queer ways of loving.

This book, through an examination of a number of representative real world cases, provides a detailed look at what happened to some companies and traditional tools for occupational health and safety, discipline, and employee relations now used by business and labour leaders are inadequate and inappropriate in responding to the problems of workplace violence. In fact, the methods and approaches commonly in use actually worsen the problem in some cases. The book summarizes the most up-to-date learning in this area and offers practical guidance and recommendations for assessing the risk of violence, steps for preventing workplace violence, and a through discussion of employees rights and employer's responsib

Prominent scholars in this book move boldly beyond critique to show how and why the critical functions of a democratically informed civic education (not merely professional training) must become the core of the university's mission. They show why higher education must address what it means to relate knowledge to public life, and social responsibility to the demands of critical citizenship. Moreover, they show why democratic forms of education and various elements of a critical pedagogy are vital not only to individual students, but also to our economy and our democratic institutions and future leadership.
