Book Summary:

Should human beings be allowed to decide when to die? Should doctors be allowed to assist them? During the last ten years there has been much international interest in euthanasia in the Netherlands. In the discussion of euthanasia in the US and the UK, both sides in the debate continually refer to the “Dutch Experience”. Negotiating a Good Death: Euthanasia in the Netherlands presents firsthand descriptions of euthanasia in practice in the Netherlands--something that has never been done before. This will provide a deeper understanding of the issues involved for all those interested in end-of-life decisions. It will also help clinicians and other medical professionals better understand end-of-life decision making. Negotiating a Good Death is the first inside account of how decisions about euthanasia are made in real-life situations. Documenting two years of observations at a Dutch hospital, this valuable book describes why patients request euthanasia, the social factors that influence doctors’decisions about granting patients’requests, and how patients and doctors confer over peaceful deaths. Some aspects of this delicate, often hidden, and socially taboo subject that Negotiating a Good Death frankly discusses are: the emotions that lead to a wish for death the ideology of easy death the anthropology of death the role of the researcher the line between symptom alleviation and euthanasia where the responsibility lies conservative options for medical personnel how to speak to relatives of someone who has requested euthanasia euthanasia as a cultural construct Through case studies and examples, Negotiating a Good Death: Euthanasia in the Netherlands will help you understand the issues surrounding euthanasia and how life-ending decisions are made by both doctors and patients.

Rainbows and roses . . . love and danger . . . betrayal and desire. And the lush splendor of California’s Napa Valley. It is here, from the bestselling pen of Katherine Stone, that this enthralling story unfolds. He had never been in love—until her . . . He is the stunning and powerful Chase Tessier, the gray-eyed maestro who creates the liquid poetry that is Tessier wine. And she had never been loved at all—until him . . . She is Cassandra Winter, the fierce and fragile waif who joyfully gave him her heart during an enchanted summer when the air was fragrant with newborn grapes and moonlit roses. But it was she who left their love. And now . . . Now the uncertain waif is a celebrated actress. She lies in intensive care, the victim of a merciless assault, ravaged, broken, and needing him. And he is there, to help her if he can, and to love her, if she will permit him to. Yet there is such danger on this journey home, this brave journey back to love.

A young boy’s willful decision has significant ramifications for the man he becomes in this tale of disillusionment and despair. Lured by the liturgy of a foreign religion and by his desire to become a scholar, Kofi Baako rejects his family, his community, and his obligation as heir apparent to the Stool of Gyedu’s Shrine. However, as he approaches his last year in seminary, Kofi Baako abandons his dream of becoming a Catholic priest and moves to a remote town where his past is unknown. Tormented by his personal demons, Kofi Baako is unable to reconcile his emotions, and when an urgent telegram summons him back to his family and community, he is apprehensive about the journey and what he might find at its end. C.O.T. Appiah skillfully constructs a tale where readers are confronted by some of life’s fundamental questions. What constitutes our identity? What is our purpose?

Book Summary:

This gripping post-World War 2 story takes place in Czechoslovakia after Germany’s surrender in May 1945. One family’s unyielding endurance and determination tells, in uncompromising detail, of the reality and aftermath of government-sanctioned brutality and expulsion of German Czechs. Revenge and violent hatred lead to the confiscation of citizenship, property, basic human rights, and, ultimately, ethnic cleansing. A culture of dehumanization takes root, and Hans and Mattie Novak, with their four children, travel the well-worn path of history. Follow their life throughout the ten years it takes before they grasp one last chance, leave their beloved homeland, and board a US Navy transport ship carrying them and hundreds of other immigrants to the promise of freedom in America. After hardships inconceivable to those who have lived outside the fields of war, they remain unbroken and exemplify hope and selfless love. The book is a celebration of heroes at all ages and the story is built on historical fact and true experiences.

Book Summary:

With a brilliant comic voice as well as Jane Austen's penchant for social satire, Candace Bushnell, who with Sex and the City changed forever how we view New York City, female friendships, and the love of a good pair of Manolos, now brings us a sharply observant, keenly funny, wildly entertaining latter day comedy of manners. Modern-day heroine Janey Wilcox is a lingerie model whose reach often exceeds her grasp, and whose new-found success has gone to her head. As we follow Janey's adventures, Bushnell draws us into a seemingly glamorous world of $100,000 cars, hunky polo players and media moguls, Fifth Avenue apartments, and relationships whose hidden agendas are detectable only by the socially astute. But just as Janey enters this world of too much money and too few morals, unseen forces conspire to bring her down, forcing her to reexamine her values about love and friendship--and how far she's really willing to go to realize her dreams.

Book Summary:

Child Killer Springfield, Ohio was an All-American town. A town rocked in 1992 by the discovery of two adolescent girls, brutally raped and murdered. Investigators soon learned that four local misfits had been accomplices. Yet DNA tests proved that the true culprit was still on the loose. Deadly Deceiver Inexplicably, the four men continued to mislead police throughout the years of the investigation, periodically supplying false clues and leads. While a cold-blooded killer remained at large, 31-year-old Belinda Anderson was raped and murdered, and Helen Preston, 38, was raped, beaten, and left for dead. Not until 1996, when a prostitute managed to survive a terrifying ordeal at the hands of her would-be slayer, were police able to catch the man who'd been stalking Springfield's women and children. Family Man He was William K. Sapp, husband, father of two young boys and a baby girl of his own. Behind his mask of seeming normalcy lay a murderous rage toward women. Here is the startling true story of a town besieged-and of the relentless manhunt that tracked Sapp through the years, finally bringing him to justice. Includes 16 Pages Of Shocking Photos
