Now a Major Motion Picture starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks. A bestselling dystopian novel that tackles surveillance, privacy and the frightening intrusions of technology in our lives. When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: The CIRCLE is a fast-moving, action-packed story about a real, notorious gang of teenagers. They cared little about who they stomped, what vandalism they did, or whose car they swiped in their attempts to get back at the "codger" and "bags" of the community. The inside details of the many jobs they pulled, how the kids behave toward each other, and what they really think of adults is plainly revealed. Although the story is about teenagers and written for teenagers it is a gutsy book and not for the squeamish or chicken-hearted. The story will "turn off" most adults but it is MUST reading for those parents who refuse to understand their teenagers as a lesson in what can happen if their kids finally "tune them out". AUTHOR BIO: James A. Coleman is a retired college physics professor. However, he has spent a good deal of time as an unpaid street worker helping troubled youths, especially those who organized into street gangs. The CIRCLE is a fictionalised story of one of these gangs. Coleman is also a well-established author of science books for the layman.

Prepare for edge-of-your-seat suspense in this Thriller Short. Originally published in THRILLER 2 (2009), edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler. In this intense Thriller Short from bestselling author David Hewson, a comfortable isolation from current events is totally shattered. The Circle line runs in a perpetual loop beneath the city of London from the prosperous west to the poorer east. Melanie Darma, a clerk at the Palace of Westminster, sits with both hands curved protectively around the baby bump under her summer coat. She has traveled the circle so often she sometimes imagines herself a part of it. On the seat opposite from her, sits a young man in a dark polyester jacket and cheap jeans. Next to him is a grubby rucksack. When she exits the tube and walks toward the heavily guarded gate of Westminster, the young man—his rucksack held high above his head, wires dangling—runs toward her, screaming in a language she doesn’t understand. It’s an act of terrorism that will end in a shocking twist. One Melanie never anticipated.

In 1866, President Andrew Johnson was trying to find solutions to a bewildering array of immediate post-Civil War challenges: what to do about the recently liberated slaves, how to bring the South back into the Union, whether or not former members of the Confederacy should be pardoned and forgiven for their war time acts and building a thriving national economy that would provide jobs for millions of new veterans. Confronted with an increasingly assertive Congress that had been frustrated by its lack of influence during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, Johnson decided to take his case directly to the American people for the fall mid-term elections of 1866, becoming the first president in history to actively engage in a political campaign. In a trade ride in which he was joined by the hero Ulysses S. Grant, the very young George Armstrong Custer, and the legendary William Seward, the secretary of state who was viciously attacked on the same night that Lincoln was murdered, Johnson spoke to hundreds of thousands of voters from New York to Chicago and St. Louis. But because of his confrontational, intemperate rhetorical style and habit of engaging hecklers in direct verbal battle, Johnson alienated more people than he won over, resulting not only in a thumping defeat for his cause at the polls, but a move to impeach and remove him from office by opponents who were convinced that Johnson's behavior on the Swing Around the Circle showed that he was mentally unbalanced. Repeatedly referred to by historians and reporters in the decades since, the Swing Around the Circle has never been explored in one single book until now.

Embraced with zeal by a wide array of activists and policymakers, the restorative justice movement has made promises to reduce the disproportionate rates of Aboriginal involvement in crime and the criminal justice system and to offer a healing model suitable to Aboriginal communities. Such promises should be the focus of considerable critical analysis and evaluation, yet this kind of scrutiny has largely been absent. 'Will the Circle be Unbroken?' explores and confronts the potential and pitfalls of restorative justice, offering a much-needed critical perspective. Drawing on their shared experiences working with Aboriginal communities, Jane Dickson-Gilmore and Carol LaPrairie examine the outcomes of restorative justice projects, paying special attention to such prominent programs as conferencing, sentencing circles, and healing circles. They also look to Aboriginal justice reforms in other countries, comparing and contrasting Canadian reforms with the restorative efforts in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States. 'Will the Circle be Unbroken?' provides a comprehensive overview of the critical issues in Aboriginal and restorative justice, placing these in the context of community. It examines the essential role of community in furthering both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal aspirations for restorative justice.

¿How long will we remain frustrated knowing what we want and not taking action to achieve it? ¿How long will we keep repeating the same mistakes? ¿How long will we continue to leave everything halfway, for lack of knowledge, energy, motivation and understanding to conclude it? Surely it will be until we become aware or the pain of a half-life is so strong that any action is more easily achievable in order not to continue crawling; it will be then when we realize that we can fly. In his book "The Circle, The Laws of Life", Vicente Cuenca takes us by the hand and takes us along the most direct, fast and effective way to go from where we are to where we want to be. From a state of malaise, to one of well-being, from a half-life to another of fullness. ¿But how do you do it? ¿How can you achieve this magnificent transformation in the people we are fortunate to read to you? Their tools are a true amalgam of applied knowledge, experience and awareness of the truth. A true awakening to the most important laws, to the universal laws, to the laws that govern our life and, that for lack of knowledge, carelessness or apathy, do not we apply so that our life goes on like this, repeating what we don't want to repeat, doing what we don't want to do, living what we don't want to live. In his book “The Circle, The Laws of Life” Vicente Cuenca leads us in the best vehicle and with a lot of patience and affection he teaches us to drive, to truly know ourselves, to be efficient, to respond assertively to life and, by Finally, live it with love and understanding. The book “The Circle, The Laws of Life” by Vicente Cuenca allows us to open up and awaken to the consciousness of who we really are and with this new look we can see, grow spiritually and find what our existence gives meaning and constitutes the mission of our life, which is the gift we come to contribute to this beautiful experience, called l
