Almost ten years have passed since Julia Win came back from Burma, her father's native country. Though she is a successful Manhattan lawyer, her private life is at a crossroads; her boyfriend recently left her, she has suffered a miscarriage, and she is, despite her wealth, unhappy with her professional life. Julia is lost and exhausted. One day, in the middle of an important business meeting, she hears a stranger's voice in her head that causes her to leave the office without explanation. In the following days, her crisis only deepens. Not only does the female voice refuse to disappear, but it starts to ask questions Julia has been trying to avoid. Why do you live alone? To whom do you feel close? What do you want in life? Interwoven with Julia's story is that of a Burmese woman named Nu Nu who finds her world turned upside down when Burma goes to war and calls on her two young sons to be child soldiers. This spirited novel, like The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, explores the most inspiring and passionate terrain: the human heart.

In the wee hours of December 16, 1773, Boston, Massachusetts, citizens, in a feat of magnificent defiance, joined together in a tea party that would breathe into being the American Revolution, a conservative constitution, a sovereign people, and the United States. Today, more than two hundred years later, it's time for a new revolution. In Renegades: Their Betrayal of America, Her Rebellion and Response, author Robert Harkins outlines the reasons for a new revolution. It's not the British we must defy but the intellectual elite, whom Harkins calls the renegade liberal—as did George Orwell in his unpublished preface to Animal Farm. The intellectual elite seek to dismantle American civilization and diminish people they believe are so intellectually vacuous and religiously provincial they must, in all things great and small, be carefully monitored and told precisely what and how to think, believe, and live. This cannot be. Americans must discover again their ancient roots, their mythos, creed, and identity. They must commit themselves again to moral and rational excellence. Renegades: Their Betrayal of America, Her Rebellion and Response is a tribute to American virtue and serves a starting point for Americans to return to excellence. 'Renegades: Their Betrayal of America, Her Rebellion and Response is a historic treasure. Robert Harkins's understanding of history, culture, and America is unsurpassed; and these pages will reveal why past civilizations have gone extinct. More importantly, Harkins's words are a roadmap for each of us to preserve liberty and freedom for our children and grandchildren right here in America, man's last best hope on earth.' Jeff Crank, radio talk show host and Colorado Director of Americans for Prosperity Robert Harkins received his law degree from St. Mary's University in Texas, where he received honors for exceptional scholastic excellence in the disciplines of federal and constitutional law. He taught business and constitutional law as a guest teacher at the University of Texas and served as a Texas judge for seven years, during which time he graduated from the Texas and National Colleges of the Judiciary. He now lives with his wife, Hyosuk, in Colorado.

In this Introduction' we shall sketch the business of ontology, or metaphysics, and shall locate it on the map of learning. This has to be done because there are many ways of construing the word 'ontology' and because of the bad reputation metaphysics has suffered until recently - a well deserved one in most cases. 1. ONTOLOGICAL PROBLEMS Ontological (or metaphysical) views are answers to ontological ques tions. And ontological (or metaphysical) questions are questions with an extremely wide scope, such as 'Is the world material or ideal - or perhaps neutral?" 'Is there radical novelty, and if so how does it come about?', 'Is there objective chance or just an appearance of such due to human ignorance?', 'How is the mental related to the physical?', 'Is a community anything but the set of its members?', and 'Are there laws of history?'. Just as religion was born from helplessness, ideology from conflict, and technology from the need to master the environment, so metaphysics - just like theoretical science - was probably begotten by the awe and bewilderment at the boundless variety and apparent chaos of the phenomenal world, i. e. the sum total of human experience. Like the scientist, the metaphysician looked and looks for unity in diversity, for pattern in disorder, for structure in the amorphous heap of phenomena - and in some cases even for some sense, direction or finality in reality as a whole.
