The Soul Reader is the exciting sequel to Gerard Webster’s award-winning debut novel, In-Sight. The two people Ward McNulty most wished he could forget were the woman he once loved and the man he still hated. He succeeded sometimes by smothering their memory under mounds of activity—his physical rehabilitation, looking for a job, and staving off foreclosure. But try as he might, it was always there—just under the surface, like smoldering embers embedded in layers of ash, needing only a breath of oxygen to burst into flame. And that’s exactly what happens one sunny Saturday afternoon, when Carrie Hope unexpectedly breezes back into his life. It is a year after his father’s murder when Carrie asks Ward to assist her in writing a book about the North Beach Project, the money-laundering scheme that led to his father’s death. Ward initially turns her down. He knows that reopening the investigation would be dangerous for three reasons. First, it could cost them their lives—the identity of the man behind the scheme remains a mystery, and he would do almost anything to keep it that way. Secondly, it may cost Ward his very soul if he gets sucked back into the vortex of hatred and revenge that he has just escaped. And finally, Ward does not know if he or Carrie could survive falling in love and hurting each other yet again. But when Carrie decides to pursue the investigation without him, Ward is faced with a difficult choice: he can allow her to go it alone and possibly get killed ... or he can join her in hopes of being able to protect her. Ward’s uncanny insight might give him an edge—and allow him to see the evil coiled in the jumbled foliage of the North Beach Project before it has a chance to strike. He decides to collaborate with her on the book, but on his terms, and thereby launches a series of events that span the globe—from Colombia to Rome—and make Ward and Carrie the target of the most dangerous assassin in the western hemisphere, a man known only as “Culebra.” It is in seeking justice that Ward discovers mercy—and love—once again.

After moving for ten plus years towards an ever closer union, the European Union and its citizens now face the choice whether to establish a full-fledged common polity. This decision requires a Europe-wide debate that includes the candidate states. European citizens must discuss what (if any) common values, principles and basic policies they share. A European identity involves the Union's institutions becoming rooted in the "soul" of the citizens, whatever its relationship might be to the existing national and local identities. Only then will the EU possess democratic legitimacy and support. These two volumes are written by authors with a political and intellectual interest in the European process. They discuss the EU's unprecedented character as a peacefull and voluntary union of peoples, its understandable obstacles encountered along the way to further integration, and the Union's less acceptable shortcomings. The first volume is written for the general reader. It examines the essential components of a European political identity in relation to democracy, citizenship, social justice, war and peace, freedom and borders. It also explores the history of this identity. The second volume is a collection of scientific essays. These provide in-depth analysis of fundamental aspects of European cultural identity such as religion, art and economic culture, myth and civil society. The two volumes can be read independently. However, we hope readers of either one will feel stimulated to reach for the other.

In The Country Music Reader Travis D. Stimeling provides an anthology of primary source readings from newspapers, magazines, and fan ephemera encompassing the history of country music from circa 1900 to the present.

Situating each source chronologically within its specific musical or cultural context, Stimeling traces the history of country music from the fiddle contests and ballad collections of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries through the most recent developments in contemporary country music. Drawing from a vast array of sources including popular magazines, fan newsletters, trade publications, and artist biographies, The Country Music Reader offers firsthand insight into the changing role of country music within both the music industry and American musical culture, and presents a rich resource for university students, popular music scholars, and country music fans alike.

The Literary Agenda is a series of short polemical monographs about the importance of literature and of reading in the wider world and about the state of literary education inside schools and universities. The category of 'the literary' has always been contentious. What is clear, however, is how increasingly it is dismissed or is unrecognised as a way of thinking or an arena for thought. It is sceptically challenged from within, for example, by the sometimes rival claims of cultural history, contextualized explanation, or media studies. It is shaken from without by even greater pressures: by economic exigency and the severe social attitudes that can follow from it; by technological change that may leave the traditional forms of serious human communication looking merely antiquated. For just these reasons this is the right time for renewal, to start reinvigorated work into the meaning and value of literary reading. Reading and the Reader offers a defence of reading serious literature, where reading offers a place for inner contemplation, emotion, imagination, and thought-experiment through the energising booster-rocket of literature. It is argued that literature creates a holding-ground in which a dense sense of experience is registered. Such a place is vital to human well-being in the following respects: in sustaining the ability to use and not just suffer one's experience; to be able to think one's thoughts, even those that are customarily unadmitted or felt as anomalous or unworthy; to find room for a realm of speculation in between religions and secularization, in between literature and life. Reading and the Reader, one of the first volumes in the Literary Agenda series, exists to defend the value of reading, to narrow the gaps between the way writers and readers think, to bring literary thinking into the ordinary thinking of the world - especially at a time when the arts and humanities are under some threat. Literature is useful in terms of deep human needs. It offers a form of time-travel - across ages, countries, different minds - that provides alternatives to any conventional worldview.

Here is a book that pulls from life-experience, and the greatest contemporary and historical sages, to engage the reader in life's most challenging and fundamental questions. It gathers momentum as the reader is exposed to the ego, soul, and the Divine by understanding their role in the evolution of human consciousness. What is blocking us from embracing our greatness? As the human mind and brain developed over the millennia, humanity's true nature was obscured by a human intellect and belief system in its early stages of evolution. We have all witnessed what this has led to. There is a way out of this box we have built for ourselves. The breakout begins when we allow ourselves to take a fresh look at the core human condition that spiritual traditions have been dealing with for thousands of years. This book shows the reader how to look at their soul in a refreshing and new way. In this new century, the time is ripe for an exciting and innovative way of approaching spirituality and rediscovering our souls. Ego, Soul, & Beyond is a life-changing and provocative book that offers a clear, comprehensive, and practical way to usher in the next stage of human evolution. It doesn't replace psychology or spirituality - it takes them to a new level. The reader is challenged to wake up their soul and embrace reality below the symptom level. The intellect, heart, and belly soul-centers, which the world's spiritual traditions target in different ways, are explained and reconceived in a way that speaks to the fullness of what it means to be human. Fundamental change has never been more possible. The human mind has evolved to a place where many are perched for a dive into a new reality where contemporary and historical problems can finally be resolved. If you are one of those ready to take the dive, you are likely a "soulworker". This is a person who is ready to do whatever it takes to find the answers to their deepest questions, face their deepest fears, and align their life with their soul's mission. You will find this book to be a leading-edge handbook that provides the tools, concepts, and keys for evolving humanity into a new way of being. The journey into our souls is the most important and exciting journey we can ever take. There is nothing more worth discovering.

Abe Kobo (1924–1993) was one of Japan’s greatest postwar writers, widely recognized for his imaginative science fiction and plays of the absurd. However, he also wrote theoretical criticism for which he is lesser known, merging literary, historical, and philosophical perspectives into keen reflections on the nature of creativity, the evolution of the human species, and an impressive range of other subjects. Abe Kobo tackled contemporary social issues and literary theory with the depth and facility of a visionary thinker. Featuring twelve essays from his prolific career—including “Poetry and Poets (Consciousness and the Unconscious),” written in 1944, and “The Frontier Within, Part II,” written in 1969—this anthology introduces English-speaking readers to Abe Kobo as critic and intellectual for the first time. Demonstrating the importance of his theoretical work to a broader understanding of his fiction—and a richer portrait of Japan’s postwar imagination—Richard F. Calichman provides an incisive introduction to Abe Kobo’s achievements and situates his essays historically and intellectually.
