People First! is a multi-genre anthology of some of F. Alexander Brejcha's previously published and original fiction stories motivated by his own extensive disABILITIES and desire to entertain mainstream readers and inspire readers with disabilities to reach out and LIVE!Stanley Schmidt, editor of Analog Science Fiction and Fact writes:" I hope you'll also notice that the stories are rarely about those disabilities; they're about people (who just happen to have disabilities of one sort or another) dealing with larger problems. You may also notice that many of the stories also deal with intelligent beings reaching across barriers to make contact and achieve understanding, whether it's humans with different sets of abilities, or humans and nonhumans with very different ways of living and experiencing the universe. They are, in short, about reaching beyond whatever limitations one might have-and we all have them-to find ways of living rich, satisfying, enjoyable, and rewarding lives. That's what Alex is about, too, and I think you'll enjoy his company as much as I have." In short, this book is meant to be a fun read for all, using science fiction, romance, horror, and suspense-but if it also happens to inform, motivate, and inspire, then so much the better.

More than six months after the UN declared a famine, Somalia is still in the throes of its worst humanitarian crisis in decades, with 325,000 children suffering acute malnutrition and 31 per cent of the population estimated to be in crisis. A large scale-up of the international response from July 2011, combined with the efforts of Somali communities and civil society, saved many lives. But access to those in need has deteriorated due to expulsions of aid agencies and also to intensified, internationally backed military operations. Responsibility for this situation lies first and foremost in Somalia, where warring factions are accused of impeding and diverting aid flows, but the international community has also been at fault. Policies focused more on international security concerns than on the needs, interests and wishes of the Somali people have inadvertently fuelled both the conflict and the humanitarian crisis. In February 2012, key governments and institutions from the region and the wider Islamic and Western world will meet in London to chart a way forward. They must seize this opportunity to refocus on the Somali people that past policies have failed, developing more coherent strategies to ensure that aid and protection reach those who need it, addressing the root causes of the protracted conflict and chronic vulnerability in the country, while developing coherent strategies to ensure humanitarian aid reaches those who need it.

" Mi Raza Primero! "is the first book to examine the Chicano movement's development in one locale-in this case Los Angeles, home of the largest population of people of Mexican descent outside of Mexico City. Ernesto Chavez focuses on four organizations that constituted the heart of the movement: The Brown Berets, the Chicano Moratorium Committee, La Raza Unida Party, and the Centro de Accion Social Autonomo, commonly known as CASA. Chavez examines and chronicles the ideas and tactics of the insurgency's leaders and their followers who, while differing in their goals and tactics, nonetheless came together as Chicanos and reformers. Deftly combining personal recollection and interviews of movement participants with an array of archival, newspaper, and secondary sources, Chavez provides an absorbing account of the events that constituted the Los Angeles-based Chicano movement. At the same time he offers insights into the emergence and the fate of the movement elsewhere. He presents a critical analysis of the concept of Chicano nationalism, an idea shared by all leaders of the insurgency, and places it within a larger global and comparative framework. Examining such variables as gender, class, age, and power relationships, this book offers a sophisticated consideration of how ethnic nationalism and identity functioned in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s."
