Then Mark finally had all he could take with Jack pestering him on a daily basis. Mark said, "Come here!" and Jack came up to him with excitement on his face thinking Mark would entertain the thought of them becoming best friends, but that wasn't going to happen. Jack could barely get any words out of his mouth when Mark grabbed him with both hands on the collar of his shirt, and spit in his face, and threw him to the floor, and said "If you bother me one more time, you'll wish you were never born. Got it! Now get lost and leave me alone you stupid little twerp." Jack got off the floor and said "You'll pay for this!"

When Victims Become Killers

When Victims Become Killers - Mahmood Mamdani Summary

"Rejecting easy explanations of the genocide as a mysterious evil force that was bizarrely unleashed, one of Africa's best-known intellectuals situates the tragedy in its proper context. He coaxes to the surface the historical, geographical, and political forces that made it possible for so many Hutu to turn so brutally on their neighbors. He finds answers in the nature of political identities generated during colonialism, in the failures of the nationalist revolution to transcend these identities, and in regional demographic and political currents that reach well beyond Rwanda. In so doing, Mahmood Mamdani broadens understanding of citizenship and political identity in postcolonial Africa." "Mamdani's analysis provides a foundation for future studies of the massacre. His answers point a way out of crisis: a direction for reforming political identity in central Africa and preventing future tragedies."--Résumé de l'éditeur.

Survivors of Slavery - Laura T. Murphy Summary

Slavery is not a crime confined to the far reaches of history. It is an injustice that continues to entrap twenty-seven million people across the globe. Laura Murphy offers close to forty survivor narratives from Cambodia, Ghana, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Ukraine, and the United States, detailing the horrors of a system that forces people to work without pay and against their will, under the threat of violence, with little or no means of escape. Representing a variety of circumstances in diverse contexts, these survivors are the Frederick Douglasses, Sojourner Truths, and Olaudah Equianos of our time, testifying to the widespread existence of a human rights tragedy and the urgent need to address it. Through storytelling and firsthand testimony, this anthology shapes a twenty-first-century narrative that many believe died with the end of slavery in the Americas. Organized around such issues as the need for work, the punishment of defiance, and the move toward activism, the collection isolates the causes, mechanisms, and responses to slavery that allow the phenomenon to endure. Enhancing scholarship in women's studies, sociology, criminology, law, social work, and literary studies, the text establishes a common trajectory of vulnerability, enslavement, captivity, escape, and recovery, creating an invaluable resource for activists, scholars, legislators, and service providers.

The Captured - Scott Zesch Summary

On New Year's Day in 1870, ten-year-old Adolph Korn was kidnapped by an Apache raiding party. Traded to Comaches, he thrived in the rough, nomadic existence, quickly becoming one of the tribe's fiercest warriors. Forcibly returned to his parents after three years, Korn never adjusted to life in white society. He spent his last years in a cave, all but forgotten by his family. That is, until Scott Zesch stumbled over his own great-great-great uncle's grave. Determined to understand how such a "good boy" could have become Indianized so completely, Zesch travels across the west, digging through archives, speaking with Comanche elders, and tracking eight other child captives from the region with hauntingly similar experiences. With a historians rigor and a novelists eye, Zesch's The Captured paints a vivid portrait of life on the Texas frontier, offering a rare account of captivity. "A carefully written, well-researched contribution to Western history -- and to a promising new genre: the anthropology of the stolen." - Kirkus Reviews

Well of Sins - Richard King,Bonnie King Summary

BOOK DESCRIPTION All civilizations have a story or myth of an Armageddon, a great war where good and evil will clash, fighting for the fate of the Universe. Some say good will triumph, others say not. In the time of Troy, three god-forged items were crafted. None of the gods who made these artifacts knew of the vital role each will play in that battle until history has molded them to its own needs. From Troy through Moses and to the Emperors of Rome, these items have been influenced by the sins and virtues of those who held them, and in return they have influenced their holders. From one hand to another they have been passed, through the generations. Only centuries after their making will their final purpose be known. No one truly knows when Armageddon is supposed to begin, but many believe it is right around the corner. They may very well be right. A time approaches where these artifacts will be sought; whether for good or evil remains to be seen. But to understand what these items are, it must be told how they came to be. It all started in Troy, with a little girl who loved a particular god very much.

Forced to Love - Sky Alexander Summary

The Fires of Love & Hate" is a sweeping historical saga of a woman who is given advantages in life through circumstances beyond her control, how she deals with them and how she lives her life. Hattie Morran is from a poor family in Missouri. She gains the love and affection of an older woman, Rebecca Garland, who wants Hattie to marry her son, Abner. Rebecca is planning to leave all her wealth to Hattie, bypassing both her son and husband. This of course leads to deception and betrayal, something to be expected when lives are turned upside down. The difficulties that Hattie goes through show how determined she can be and that she must continue on no matter what happens. According to the author, this story is loosely based on his family history. My take: This is a good story for those who like romances based on some truth, a bit of history and some legends, a book filled with rich settings and culture that is very character-driven. By Pam Brewer Idaho Statesman "My fortune, my dear, is mine to do with as I please. It is not Jess's money nor is it Abner's, and it would please me immensely to give everything to you. I can only imagine the pleasure it will bring me to see my fortune in the hands of a beautiful and intelligent young woman like yourself." "But Mrs. Garland . . . ," Hattie tried to protest. "Now, you listen to me, Miss Hattie. There are a few things we need to get straight, right now. From now on you're going to have to call me either Mother or Rebecca, but not Mrs. Garland. And from this moment, Hattie, it's going to be you and me. .. against them. We'll play this 'man's game' with Jess and Abner, and by all that is holy, we'll win! When you marry Abner and become my daughter-in-law, there isn't a court in the land in which they could challenge what I've done and win." "But what about their anger?" Hattie asked. "Jess and Abner will be furious." "Furious doesn't even begin to describe how they're going to react. Even though I probably shouldn't, I am going to set them up with handsome allowances. What can they do? I'm of sound mind. So, Miss Hattie, when you marry Abner, I will give you nine-tenths of my fortune, and the remainder will be yours at my death."

The Color of Grace - Bethany Haley Williams Summary

A middle-class woman in rural America and war-affected children in Africa find common ground in their journeys from brokenness to redemption. Author and psychologist Bethany Haley Williams shares how her own emotional healing led her into treacherous war zones, where she provides care to former child soldiers and young girls used as sex slaves. Faced with her own battle with shame and a rocky journey toward healing, Bethany founded Exile International, a nonprofit that implements art/expressive therapy and long-term, rehabilitative care to restore and empower war-affected children—including children rescued from Joseph Kony’s LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). One of those rescued young men, Solomon, was abducted at the age of ten after being forced to watch LRA soldiers maim and murder his father and grandfather. His younger siblings were left behind, and his mother was instructed to “raise them well…for one day we’ll return to take them too.” Solomon is one of hundreds of thousands of boys and girls who have had their innocence stolen and are forced to do the unthinkable on a daily basis. But their horrific experiences are just the beginning. The real story is what happens after. Once these children learn to face their pasts, they are given hope for a future and a vision for changing the fabric of their countries by becoming leaders for peace and advocates of the power of forgiveness.





This book has been called short story, fiction, literature. The stories cover a wide range of genres. It contains a bit of soft, science fiction, easy philosophy, and several intense love stories. If the question should come up in conversation as to why one should not tempt the Creator this story, "The Stranger's Touch", will offer a very good reason why you should avoid that action like the black plague. This love story, "A Desert Blooms", proves love can bloom anywhere, even in the middle of a war zone. This next story is about an engagement ring, found on a country road, and it opens a story about one man who died in war and one man who lived and the woman who lost the ring. The two men were on the same bomber that was shot down over France. Another story offers the horror for a man who was convicted of murder, and sent to prison for life; he's innocent, but he cannot prove it, and he decides to escape. A reporter tells this story, with a good deal of empathy. It was a heart rending tale of sorrow and frustration. The Creator moves in all these stories.
