Following on from the success of Men Explain Things to Me comes a new collection of essays in which Rebecca Solnit opens up a feminism for all of us: one that doesn't stigmatize women's lives, whether they include spouses and children or not; that brings empathy to the silences in men's lives as well as the silencing of women's lives; celebrates the ways feminism has shifted in recent years to reclaim rape jokes, revise canons, and rethink our everyday lives.

Beginning with the election of Donald Trump ("The Loneliest Man in the World") and expanding back and forth into American history, surveillance, violence against the individual, the denormalizing of misogyny and the rehumanizing of public space. The ultimate focus of the book is climate and feminist activism, bringing Solnit's trademark deep analysis to bear on a range of contemporary crises. And again, and spectacularly, she shows us how to hope.

The search for Caylee made front-page headlines when news broke of two-year-old Caylee Anthony's disappearance from her home in Orlando Florida in mid-July 2008. Caylee's own mother, Casey Anthony stepped into the national spotlight after the suspicious disappearance of her daughter. As her story unfolded the strange story started to come out, this included a dysfunctional family life, an array of deceptions and criminal conduct. As the investigation continued and suspicions mounted, Casey became the prime suspect. In October 2008, based on new evidence against Casey—her erratic behavior and lies, her car that showed signs of human decomposition—a grand jury indicted the young single mother. Then, two months later, police found Caylee's remains a quarter of a mile away from her home. Society believed that Casey was guilty, but the jury, however, felt differently due to evidence considered by them to be circumstantial. Casey was acquitted of the murder charge, but she found herself loathed by the general public. Did she or didn't she kill Caylee? This is the story of one of the most shocking, confusing, and horrific crimes in modern American history.

Sanctimonious Serial Killers is much more than a murder novel about serial killers. It is a gripping tale exploring the psychological and moral dimensions of aberrant minds convinced of the righteousness of their murderous deeds. It’s also a tale about mounting personal losses and their devastating effects on a human being’s life and belief system. The story begins with Agent Rick Clark and his colleague, Marty Robin, investigating the murder of three women over a period of less than three years. When Agent Clark returns from investigating the latest serial killing, his colleague meets him at Reagan International Airport and delivers horrifying news that sends his life into a tailspin and the story to places where crime thrillers rarely go. Michael Segedy’s crime novel certainly has its twists, its turns, and its surprises. It’s awash with all the elements of a great thriller, but it is far more than just an engaging crime novel. It’s a story about vulnerable souls pushed to the edge; about souls that crack and souls that cope; it’s a story with profound psychological and moral ramifications; a story about a hidden world of subterfuge and terror; a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, captivate your imagination, and spare you from the cheap thrills and implausible events and characters common in lesser crime thrillers. Finally, and foremost, it’s a starkly haunting, heart wrenching story about characters and events drawn from the real world, your world.

Religion And Science In Context

How should we think about religion, science, and their relationship in modern society? Some religious groups oppose evolution; some atheists claim science is on their side. Others reconcile their beliefs with science, or consider science and faith to deal with fundamentally different aspects of human life. What indeed is religion: belief or trust in God’s existence? How do we distinguish sense from superstition? What does science have to say on such issues? Willem B. Drees considers contemporary discussions of these issues in Europe and North America, using examples from Christianity and religious naturalism, and reflections on Islam and Tibetan Buddhism. He argues that the scientific understanding leaves open certain ultimate questions, and thus allows for belief in a creator, but also for religious naturalism or serious agnosticism. By analysing the place of values in a world of facts, and the quest for meaningful stories in a material world, Religion and Science in Context offers an original and self-critical analysis of the field, its assumptions and functions, and ends with a vision of its possible future.
