The anti-Vietnam War movement in the United States is perhaps best remembered for its young, counterculture student protesters. However, the Vietnam War was the first conflict in American history in which a substantial number of military personnel actively protested the war while it was in progress. In The Turning, Andrew Hunt reclaims the history of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), an organization that transformed the antiwar movement by placing Vietnam veterans in the forefront of the nationwide struggle to end the war. Misunderstood by both authorities and radicals alike, VVAW members were mostly young men who had served in Vietnam and returned profoundly disillusioned with the rationale for the war and with American conduct in Southeast Asia. Angry, impassioned, and uncompromisingly militant, the VVAW that Hunt chronicles in this first history of the organization posed a formidable threat to America's Vietnam policy and further contributed to the sense that the nation was under siege from within. Based on extensive interviews and in-depth primary research, including recently declassified government files, The Turning is a vivid history of the men who risked censures, stigma, even imprisonment for a cause they believed to be "an extended tour of duty."

Shanker exposes the confusions underlying the currently prevailing interpretations of Wittgenstein. He shows how such approaches and their underlying critical frameworks are incapable of coming to terms with Wittgenstein's arguments in the philosophy of mathematics. This book explains not only Wittgenstein's approach, which was justly heralded as causing a turning point in the philosophy of mathematics, but also the philosophy of mathematics in general.

The poems in this fifth collection by Hilda Morley are poems of transformation. They map the poet's turning toward a healing from grief and brokenness. They explore the rich textures of friendship, and render with clarity and delicacy both outer and inner landscapes. Morley's poetry has a deep affinity with painting. In the poet's words: "From the Abstract Expressionists I discovered a way of seeing the modern world in its totality, finding meaning in what was defaced, injured, dishevelled, torn, eroded and disfigured, without rejection. To transform or transmute these elements but still to embody them was my task as poet."

Have you drift off course in relationship with God? Have you been enticed by Satan's schemes and fallen back into a lifestyle of sin? Do you have a longing in your heart to have close intimate fellowship with God once again? Maybe you are not the one who has turned away from God, but perhaps you know someone who was once in a loving relationship with God, devoted to living life for him, but now have turned their back on God. If you have found yourself in either of these scenarios, then The Turning Point Rebuilding Your Relationship With God is the book for you. The Turning Point- Rebuilding Your Relationship with God addresses some of the enticing schemes that Satan uses to cause believers to become disloyal to God and commit spiritual adultery. It expounds on the dangers of drifting off course and the devastating effects that it can have on one's life. Using biblical examples, it demonstrates the point that even the most devoted Christian can stray away if he or she falls prey to the temptations orchestrated by Satan. It also provides a strategic plan on how a Christian can remain anchored and techniques that they can use to prevent them from falling back into a lifestyle of sin. The Turning Point gives those who may have backslidden, a step by step approach to reaching a turning point and the guidance needed in rebuilding their relationship with God. Finally, this book stresses the role and responsibility that each Christian plays in helping an erring brother or sister return to God.
