When Sheila Malory reluctantly agrees to help out in one of Taviscombe’s charity shops for a few weeks, her friend Rosemary warns her that about the ‘control freak’ manager Desmond Barlow, and wonders why she couldn’t have said ‘no’. Sheila does seem to find it difficult to let people down and it is not without some trepidation that she begins her volunteer work. Before too long, she begins to get the measure of her fellow volunteers including the bossy and strident Norma Stanley; no-nonsense and cheerful Jean; and Desmond’s mousey and put-upon wife Wendy. It’s clear there’s a clash of personalities but surely no-one would wish Desmond harm? When his lifeless body is discovered in the shop after an apparent botched robbery, Sheila finds herself at the heart of the investigation as Inspector Bob Morris seeks her help - unofficially, of course. As Sheila delves deeper into the lives of her fellow charity-shop workers, she discovers long-held secrets and hitherto unknown connections - and perhaps a motive for murder exists after all? As Shakespeare put it so eloquently in Julius Caesar, ‘death, a necessary end, will come when it will come’ but for Desmond Barlow it came somewhat sooner than nature intended...

How far would you go to get what you wanted? The author of Don’t Try to Find Me returns with a taut, riveting novel of psychological suspense—a domestic drama full of secrets and twists—about a woman determined to have a child, her ambivalent husband, and a pregnant teenager with a secret agenda of her own. “I know now that there was no other way things could have turned out. Tragedies are inevitable, just like the great love stories, like us.” Thirty-nine-year-old Adrienne is desperate to be a mother. And this time, nothing is going to get in her way. Sure, her husband, Gabe, is ambivalent about fatherhood. But she knows that once he holds their baby, he’ll come around. He’s just feeling a little threatened, that’s all. Because once upon a time, it was Gabe that Adrienne wanted more than anything; she was willing to do anything. . . . But that was half a lifetime ago. She’s a different person now, and so is Gabe. There are lines she wouldn’t cross, not without extreme provocation. And sure, she was bitten once before by another birth mother—clear to the bone—and for most people, it’s once bitten, twice shy. But Adrienne isn’t exactly the retiring type. At nineteen, Leah bears a remarkable resemblance to the young woman Adrienne once was. Which is why Adrienne knows the baby Leah is carrying is meant to be hers. But Leah’s got ideas of her own: Her baby’s going to get a life in California; why shouldn’t she? All she wants is to live in Adrienne’s house for a year after the baby’s born, and get a fresh start. It seems like a small price for Adrienne to pay to get their baby. And with Gabe suddenly on board, what could possibly go wrong?

"It spreads like a plague but it's not a disease. Medical science is helpless against the deadly autoimmune reaction caused by the bite of the swarming African flies. Billions are dead, more are dying. Across the world, governments are falling, civilization is crumbling, and everywhere those still alive fear the death carried in the skies. Some say the flies are a freak mutation, others say they're manmade, but as hope of beating them fades, most turn to the only comfort left and see the plague as God's will... But not everyone dies. A few seem immune. They call themselves mungus and preach acceptance of the plague, encouraging people to allow themselves to be bitten by the "flies of the Lord" so that they may join Him the afterlife. Nigel, an investigative reporter, searches the apocalyptic landscape of plague-ravaged England in search of Bandora, a kidnapped African boy. On a quest for personal redemption as well as the truth, his search takes him away from the troubles he can no longer face at home, and into world of the head mungu, a man who speaks truth in riddles and has no fear of the African flies"--Page [4] of cover.

While recent criticism of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar has stressed the corruption of both the common people and the Republic's enemies within the patrician class, this book argues that at the core of the play lies the less obvious but more important corruption of the regime's leading defenders, particularly Brutus.

Kant S Practical Philosophy Reconsidered

That Kant's ideas remain vitally present in ethical thinking today is as impossible to deny as it is to overlook their less persisting aspects and sometimes outdated idiom. The essays in this volume attempt to reassess some crucial questions in Kant's practical philosophy both by sketching the lines for new systematic interpretations and by examining how Kantian themes apply to contemporary moral concerns. In the previous decade, when Kant was primarily read as an answer to utilitarianism, emphasis was mainly laid on the fundamentals of his moral theory, stressing such concepts as universalization, duty for its own sake, personal autonomy, unconditional imperatives or humanity as end-in-itself, using the Groundwork and its broader (ifless popular) systematic parallel, the Analytic of the Critique of Practical Reason, as main sources. In recent years, however, emphasis has shifted and become diversified. The present essays reflect this diversification in discussing the extension of Kantian ethics in the domains of law, justice, politics and moral history, and also in considering such meta-philosophical questions as the relation between the various "inter ests of reason" (as Kant calls them), above all between knowledge and moral practice. The papers were first presented at the Seventh Jerusalem Philosophical Encounter, held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in December 1986. The Jerusalem Philosophical Encounters are a series of bi-annual international symposia, in which philosophers of different backgrounds meet in Jerusalem to discuss a common issue. Organized by the S. H.

At the tender age of 15, the author set out to discover the answers to two questions – “What is disease?” and “What does disease signify?” His quest began in 1966 when he enrolled in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Liverpool. After 5 years of study he then worked as a Veterinary Clinician and Surgeon in large animal practice for 8 years. This experience did not answer the questions. In 1975 he began living, thinking and eating according to macrobiotic principles and philosophy, and as he did, the answers to these questions began to become clearer. In 1982, he discovered the work of Rudolf Steiner, and as he began to study his lecture cycles and books, the answers became revealed. The End of Medicine is the result of over 40 years of study, experience, and learning working with thousands of sick individuals from all walks of life. The contents of the book describe how and why illnesses develop, what illness signifies, and makes a distinction between illness, disease and health. The crucial significance of the digestive processes of assimilation and elimination in the onset of illnesses and recovery of health are described in detail. The book thus fulfils the indication given by Rudolf Steiner in a lecture, given in 1923, where he says, “a modern system of medicine must always take the metabolic system, that is to say the normal processes of digestion, as its point of departure, and starting from there it must deduce how internal illnesses in the widest possible sense can arise from the metabolism”. In addition, the book contains instruction on how to do self-diagnosis and then gives the reader, speaking imaginatively, a pair of new legs, a compass and a map. The reader who is sufficiently inspired can then learn to use the “new pair of legs”, comprising a change to a macrobiotic way of eating and doing the ginger compress regimen described, learning how to use “the compass”, yin and yang theory, and use “the map” contained in the latter chapters to explore the new territory which opens up before us as we do so.

Public Health Policy and Ethics brings together philosophers and practitioners to address the foundations and principles upon which public health policy may be advanced – especially in the international arena. What is the basis that justifies public health in the first place? Why should individuals be disadvantaged for the sake of the group? How do policy concerns and clinical practice work together and work against each other? Can the boundaries of public health be extended to include social ills that are amenable to group-dynamic solutions? What about political issues? How can international finance make an impact? These are some of the crucial questions that form the core of this volume of original essays sure to cause practitioners to engage in a critical re-evaluation of the role of ethics in public health policy.
