What happens when you never stop questioning what you believe? They say God works in mysterious ways. John Domenico should know. In his 50 plus years, he's embarked on a seeker's journey that has taken him from steadfast Catholicism to born-again Christianity to a unique kind of inclusive spirituality. Blind Spots: The Memoirs of a Baby Boomer on the Rocky Road towards Spiritual Awakening collects his insightful and often humorous thoughts, reflections and critiques on all of them. The result is a deliciously candid and frank book that will appeal to anyone who's ever struggled to understand his or her faith. From early on, it's clear Domenico marched to his own drummer. As a child, he learns to question his family's Catholic faith - and finds plenty of trouble from the nuns and priests in Catholic school. Subsequent to his experimentation in the 1960's and 70's, Domenico settles down and, after initial resistance, discovers Pentecostalism. But eventually he finds cracks in his latest belief system, and he sets out for what will be the most spiritually fulfilling quest of all. Interspersed are compelling asides on his personal life, as well as the politics, major events, personalities and trends that have shaped the last half-century. Throughout it all, Domenico's sensitivity and keen wit masterfully transform an ordinarily timeworn subject, that under his care, is crafted into a thought-provoking, rollicking ride that might just get you questioning your own deeply held beliefs... Reader reviews: "It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me think so much I don't know what I believe anymore." "I loved it... I think it should be required reading for everyone on the planet." "Domenico tells his story with painful rawness. His courage is rivaled only by his masterful storytelling, revealing much of who we all are in this provocative memoir."

"This book is destined to be a bombshell in the field and perhaps far beyond the field." -Paul Buhle, coauthor of Tender Comrades: A Backstory of the Hollywood Blacklist As World War II wound down in 1945 and the cold war heated up, the skilled trades that made up the Conference of Studio Unions (CSU) began a tumultuous strike at the major Hollywood studios. This turmoil escalated further when the studios retaliated by locking out CSU in 1946. This labor unrest unleashed a fury of Red-baiting that allowed studio moguls to crush the union and seize control of the production process, with far-reaching consequences. This engrossing book probes the motives and actions of all the players to reveal the full story of the CSU strike and the resulting lockout of 1946. Gerald Horne draws extensively on primary materials and oral histories to document how limited a "threat" the Communist party actually posed in Hollywood, even as studio moguls successfully used the Red scare to undermine union clout, prevent film stars from supporting labor, and prove the moguls' own patriotism. Horne also discloses that, unnoticed amid the turmoil, organized crime entrenched itself in management and labor, gaining considerable control over both the "product" and the profits of Hollywood. This research demonstrates that the CSU strike and lockout were a pivotal moment in Hollywood history, with consequences for everything from production values, to the kinds of stories told in films, to permanent shifts in the centers of power.

In the midst of the heated and publicized trial, Nora finds more than just a friend in Sergeant Michael Francis Casey, a handsome Irish cop who believes as Nora that the truth may only lie in the murky corridors of city hall.
