Amid the strict social conventions of 1920s Singapore, four young people struggle to rise from the chaos of the Great War ... Alex Beresford, the unwilling heir to a shipping-line had been prevented from fighting by his family and is suffocated by his overbearing and suspicious parents. Now he burns with the fire of rebellion and seeks any challenge that will bring him the excitement and danger he missed. None of the prim society girls in Singapore are of interest to him and as well as being bored, he is lonely and sees no way out from the duties forced upon him. Martin Linwood, scarred by the physical and mental wounds of war, is a man who had done all the things Alex would give his soul to experience. He faces an uncertain future terrified by his sense of isolation until Lydia, Alex's over-protected young sister, suddenly finds herself drawn to him. And into their lives comes Dorothea du Lessier, the daughter of a risqué novelist and Alex's 'kissing cousin'. Affectionately known as Thea, she causes huge strain in the Beresford household and shocks the island's society-ladies with her forward and liberated ways. But one member of the Beresford family is dangerously enchanted by her ... Brimming with passion, colour and the heat of the tropics, Some Far Elusive Dawn brilliantly portrays the entwining of four lives as a new generation fights to emerge from the shadow of war.

Goddess X begins in the heart and mind of Keith Martin, a twenty-six year old social worker who is slightly neurotic and overly nostalgic for the 1970s. He reluctantly trudges through his existence, resenting the present time and mourning the loss of his utopian childhood spent with Dawn; the kind and beautiful next-door neighbor who raised and nurtured him while his parents nurtured their careers. His banal reality shatters forever when he and his co-workers attend the grand opening of a ghoulish new bar called No Escape. Keith is shocked when he witnesses the owner of the bar, Dawn's conniving and controlling husband David, passionately kissing another woman. Realizing that he must warn Dawn, Keith decides to contact her despite the pain it will cause him to face his lost love, a woman twenty years his senior, a woman who was like a mother to him. Overcoming his fear, Keith makes a trip to his old neighborhood and pays a visit to Dawn, who welcomes him with tears and hugs. They quickly discover that their bond is as strong as ever, but that they must also face an awkward and intense physical attraction. Infused with new hope, they vow to never lose each other again. Keith's newfound bliss is short-lived as he discovers the dark secrets of the past. His entire being is shaken when he learns that Dawn, the "Goddess" of his childhood, had been verbally and physically abused by David throughout their entire marriage. He also learns that Dawn's house, his childhood sanctuary, is being plagued by paranormal phenomena, which began in 1974 when David and his mistress, Rosa, tried to invoke an evil spirit into the body of a marionette during a party. Enraged by this information, Keith begins an investigation that leads from the past to a future where David and Rosa, a self-proclaimed sorceress, are planning a bizarre and demonic demise for Dawn that's twenty-four years in the making. "For a brand new writer, Robert St. Clare has the skills and abilities of a seasoned author. Like Charles Dickens, he gives his characters many dimensions, so much so that the reader can´t help liking and disliking the right ones. You really want to travel through the adventures and misadventures of Keith Martin, whose love for an older woman (his former baby-sitter, Dawn) overpowers him. He therefore falls prey to the dangers awaiting him, commandeered by Dawn´s evil husband David and his mistress Rosa, an expert in Tibetan sorcery... An interesting and compelling tale in the flavor of Edgar Allen Poe, especially in St. Clare´s flash-backs to the ´70´s obsessions with drugs and the occult... A gripping page-turner." C.

Dawn Powell was a gifted satirist who moved in the same circles as Dorothy Parker, Ernest Hemingway, renowned editor Maxwell Perkins, and other midcentury New York luminaries. Her many novels are typically divided into two groups: those dealing with her native Ohio and those set in New York. “From the moment she left behind her harsh upbringing in Mount Gilead, Ohio, and arrived in Manhattan, in 1918, she dove into city life with an outlander’s anthropological zeal,” reads a recent New Yorker piece about Powell, and it is those New York novels that built her reputation for scouring wit and social observation. In this critical biography and study of the New York novels, Patricia Palermo reminds us how Powell earned a place in the national literary establishment and East Coast social scene. Though Powell’s prolific output has been out of print for most of the past few decades, a revival is under way: the Library of America, touting her as a “rediscovered American comic genius,” released her collected novels, and in 2015 she was posthumously inducted into the New York State Writer’s Hall of Fame. Engaging and erudite, The Message of the City fills a major gap in in the story of a long-overlooked literary great. Palermo places Powell in cultural and historical context and, drawing on her diaries, reveals the real-life inspirations for some of her most delicious satire.

The phenomenal growth of modern astronomy, including the invention of the coronagraph and major developments in telescope design and photographic technique, is unparalleled in many centuries. Theories of relativity, the concept and measurement of the expanding universe, the location of sun and planets far from the center of the Milky Way, the exploration of the interiors of stars, the pulsation theory of Cepheid variation, and investigations of interstellar space have profoundly altered the astronomer's approach. These fundamental discoveries are reported in papers by such eminent scientists as Albert Einstein, Sir Arthur S. Eddington, Henry Norris Russell, Sir James Jeans, Meghnad Saha, Otto Struve, Fred L. Whipple, Bernard Lyot, Jan H. Oort, and George Ellery Hale. The Source Book's 69 contributions represent all fields of astronomy. For example, there are reports on the equivalence of mass and energy (E = mc2) of the special theory of relativity; building the 200-inch Palomar telescope; the scattering of galaxies suggesting a rapidly expanding universe; stellar evolution; and the Big Bang and Steady State theories of the universe's origin.

The Metarevolution

The Metarevolution is a revolutionary manifesto about revolutions. It is both a theory about the nature of change throughout history, and a prescription of what to do about it. The touchstone idea for The Metarevolution is that no matter how well thought-out any ideology may be to start with, there are always limitations which only become clear as its ideals are applied. History shows that radical changes too often lead to disaster or to corruption as these limitations are revealed, or as thinking stagnates when it needs to change. How can we overcome these limitations for present and future revolutions? And how can we overcome the failure to ultimately progress which this basic cycle of history demonstrates? By looking at the 'hypothetical' example of a coming global ecological revolution, and many examples from history, The Metarevolution analyses what goes wrong with cultures in following their ideals, and reveals the metarevolutionary response. This is to create a subculture which pursues an on-going deep critique of ideology, the aim of which is for humanity to continually evolve its ideals. In following this metarevolutionary programme we will continually redirect ourselves towards the best world we can create for ourselves. So a metarevolution is the most intelligent thing the human race can do for itself... and The Metarevolution needs you.

Elusive Security

This clear and concise text offers a comprehensive comparison of national, international, and human security concepts and policies. Laura Neack argues that security remains elusive because of a centuries-old ethic insisting that states are the primary and most important international actors, can rely ultimately only on themselves for protection, and must keep all options on the table for national security. The author compellingly demonstrates how a state-first security ethic ultimately fails to secure states, the international community and-most important-human beings. Although security as a concept can be widened to include almost any aspect of existence, Neack focuses especially on security from physical violence, beginning with efforts by states to defend themselves against violent attack. She explores such topics as the internal and external dimensions of security, terrorism, and defending the homeland; threat perception and responses; preemptive and preventive wars; and other military interventions. Next, Neack examines efforts over the past century to protect states through the construction of the United Nations international security system and how collective security, peacekeeping, and peace enforcement have been used in that system. Throughout, Neack shows that human security has only mattered in terms of servicing the state's security needs, a critique she takes up directly in the final chapters. A range of short and extended case studies are offered to illustrate the conceptual materials and policy debates over security. In this state-first world, we only can choose between degrees of insecurity; true security remains elusive.

Before he died, he made her promise that she would present herself into the family of the young lady Georgiana Stavely, whom he had met only two months earlier. They had fallen in love even upon first meeting and had made their ambitious plans for the future, all of which now lay in ruins. To provide Georgiana with the protection of his name, they had secretly married. He made his sister promise that Georgiana, and the child she would eventually bearhis childwould be protected and looked after. She had never met the young lady but had learned a little of the family from her brother. Some of the stories she heard did not paint an encouraging picture. The opportunity to become a close companion and friend to the young lady, without revealing her own identity or interest, was unexpectedly presented to her. However, she had to take on the identity of another in order not to be recognized as Olivers sister, with all of the difficulties that that would introduce. When Georgianas own brother, Henry, appeared on the scene late one night, the initial gentle deception soon grew into much more than she could easily handle. The circumstance rapidly went beyond her control when Georgiana died giving birth, leaving her to look after the baby, and to deal with Henry. With all that was happening, she knew that she had to take the baby with her and escape the suddenly impossible situation she was caught up in before her deception and other elements of her past caught up with her. She hoped Henry might forgive her for what she had to do and for other deceptions she now must hide from him. She knew that he would never give up on finding her, though it was to be six years coming to that pointand not a moment too soon, with so much hanging in the balance concerning all of their futures.
