The book will: i. Enlighten the world about Nigeria, providing candid information with more emphasis and focus on the positive and unique aspects about this West African country. ii. Show that the country is a lot more than a producer of terrorists or con-artists, and highlight its potential and hope for a better tomorrow. iii. Show a need and urgency for all human beings to have a sense of curiosity about others, to generate an interest in fellow human beings to ignite the spirit of tolerance. iv. Open our eyes even wider and broaden our view of the face of terrorism in hopes to conquer it very soon. v. Leave a legacy of the Nigerian culture and a better environment for the children than we met it. The book will sensitize you to the fact that no matter what space you occupy here on earth, Nigerian or non-Nigerian, global problems require global solutions and a little effort to make changes by everyone from all nations can go a long way. I also hope that your knowledge and understanding of other cultures, starting with Nigeria, will increase your urge to know more of your surroundings, other human beings around the world, and encouraged to be your brother's keeper as we all fight against terrorism and other world issues.

Elder Law in Maryland provides guidance to both applicable federal law and the unique aspects of Maryland elder law.

Selected Issues In American Education
By Samuel E. Beckles
Exhaustively researched and presented in a lucid, intelligent fashion, Selected Issues in American Education, by Samuel E. Beckles, examines six topics of importance in modern education. In 'Staff Development in Community Colleges' Mr. Beckles confronts the most crucial area of concern for the community based and funded institution of higher learning, a sector of the education field whose enrollment has increased 300 percent in the past decade. Often overlooked in these days of budgetary restriction and fiscal crisis, Mr. Beckles asserts that staff development is the key factor in the continued success of the community college. Turning to another area of educational concern in 'Existential Phenomenological Considerations for Counselors of College Students,' Mr. Beckles examines the heretofore unmet counseling needs of the modern collegian. Drawing on the works of an impressive array of philosophers and psychologists, including Frankl, Fingarette, Kierkegaard, and Sartre, the author formulates methods and means by which the frequent confusion and depression of college students can be eased through techniques adopted from the existentialist philosophy. Mr. Beckles addresses pressing and controversial subject with intelligence and sensitivity. Selected Issues in American Education is a tour de force by Beckles and a landmark in educational research and criticism.

Profiles in Betrayal: The Enemy Within
By Adams, Christopher S.
Profiles In Betrayal: The Enemy Within is a sequel to his first novel, Red Eagle, and carries the theme of Soviet secret police operations, spying and espionage to a new level. Following the assassination of President Kennedy and the discovery that the accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had lived in the Soviet Union for three years prior to the murder, historical Soviet paranoia erupted. The main character of the story, “Sasha” Katsanov, is a highly trained and skilled Soviet GRU agent-spy who is once again sent back into the United States undercover to attempt to determine if Oswald, the accused assassin, was in fact under the influence of the KGB, other Soviet interests, or did he act alone. The historical rivalry between the two principal Soviet intelligence agencies, the GRU and the KGB, is rekindled with numerous violent attempts on the part of the latter to thwart Sasha’s mission. Kidnapping, torture and murder, a normal part of the KGB’s modus operandi, to influence and exert power and control were put to full use in attempts to sabotage Sasha’s investigation. Within the U.S., the Intelligence Community was also in turmoil over its respective failure to monitor the activities of the accused assassin, Oswald, both while he lived in the Soviet Union and after he returned. Profiles In Betrayal will not only keep the reader gripped by the exceptional realism of the story as well as the clever plot development.

Herbs of Southern Ecuador: A Field Guide to the Medicinal Plants of Vilcabamba
By Bejar, Ezra
Secrets of Youth in Southern Ecuador? Vilcabamba, (in the Quechua language “holly valley”) located in Southern Ecuador, is known to gerontologists as one of three places in the world with the largest population of elderly people. This valley is known as an "island of immunity and a pool of longevity." The favorable climate, water quality, proper nutrition and use of herbs allow inhabitants to survive to a high age in a remarkable state of fitness. Until now the " herbal wisdom of the age" has not been documented. An international team of scientists (including medical anthropology, ethnobotany and ethnopharmacology) contacted the only elderly curandero living in San Pedro de Vilcabamba, Don Cruz Roa. After establishing a solid relationship with him, the team meticulously organized local herbal wisdom in a coherent and succinct manner for transmission to future generations. For the first time the secrets of herbal wisdom of Vilcabamba are available to the public. Herbs of Southern Ecuador provides exciting information about the expedition to Ecuador, the field methodology, and complete ethnobotanical information on more than 140 herbs. It includes vernacular and scientific names, families and synonyms, illustrations, botanical descriptions, origins, geographic coordinates, as well as ecology, traditional classification, uses, preparation, parts used, and administration. The information is in Spanish and English, for easy cross-reference, containing excellent indices by scientific and vernacular names and a comprehensive bibliography

Ideologies in Conflict : A Cold War Docu-Story
By Adams, Christopher S.
The author characterizes this book as a "docu-story". As such, it is an exceptionally well-researched and skillfully written chronology of the history of Russia, the Soviet Union and the cold War. The work is unusual and unique. It is unusual because unlike most books of an historical nature, it is free-flowing and not tightly structured. It is unique because it is written with considerable input from the author's personal experiences interwoven with perceptions and anecdotal observations. The work is Assertive: "I have no doubt that there was Cold War. I fought in it." (The Author); Candid: "Stalin is an unconscionable dictator, but I liked the little son-of-a-bitch." (Truman); Provocative: "Truman is worthless." (Stalin); and Challenging: "Why not set a goal, just between the two of us; let's find a practical way to solve our critical issues." (Reagan) and "we can set a specific agenda for how to straighten-out Soviet-American relations." (Gorbachev). Finally, it is Cautionary: "The world has become in many respects a safer place, unfortunately, it is also still a dangerous place, fraught with uncertainty." (Commander-in-Chief, US Strategic Command) and: "The missile force is in the same state of readiness as ten years ago. My men and my missiles are always ready." (General of the Army, Igor Sergeyev, Republic of Russia.)

How Sweet It Is Without the Sugar: Delicious Desserts for Diabetics and Others (Paperback)

By carefully testing and experimenting with different sweeteners on the market, and often using fresh, ripe fruits and juices, Jean has come up with nearly 100 recipes that avoid the pitfalls to baking without sugar.

Like a line from "The Stranger Song" by Leonard Cohen, "We'll meet tomorrow if you choose upon the shore beneath the bridge that they are building on some endless river."

Geopolitics identifies and scrutinizes the central features of geopolitics from the sixteenth century to the present, paying close attention to its persisting conceptual underpinnings, novel turns and shifting impacts. The book focuses on five key concepts of the modern geopolitical imagination: visualizing the world as a whole; the definition of geographical areas as 'advanced' or 'primitive'; the notion of the state being the highest form of political organization; the pursuit of primacy by competing states; and the necessity for hierarchy.

The Fraternity: Lawyers And Judges In Collusion
By Molloy, John F.
As lawyer and judge for half a century, John Fitzgerald Molloy has both profited from our legal system and seen how it has been altered in favor of lawyers, to the detriment of society. The book starts with the evolution of the Fraternity, with the author using vivid descriptions of particular cases in which he was involved. He shows that the legal profession has continuously re-shaped the law, in subtle but significant ways, to make legal services ever more necessary—and more lucrative for the Fraternity. The power the Fraternity now exercises, including the power to decide President Bush over Gore, has been accomplished by creating a new religion, that of worshiping the Constitution in ways the founders did not intend—with lawyers and judges the priests of that religion. Lawyers may not appreciate the revelations in this book, but they should be very interested, for this author knows the profession well, and his analysis will resonate with their own experience. For those who have been appalled by the large fees charged for lawyers’ services, this book will be an enlightenment. For those who appreciate vignettes coming from some of the most interesting cases hitting our courts, this book will be captivating. Molloy documents terrible deficiencies in our legal system and presents practical solutions, such as separating the bench and the bar as is done in other countries in the world. Other publications that decry the ascendancy of lawyers offer no suggestion as to how their power can be curbed. This book does.

My Book is My Story: Surrendering My Journey to the Holy Spirit
By L.A. Virgil-Maldonado
This book is a poetic journey comprised of mini chapters resembling a modern day Biblical Psalms. Like Psalms, this is a writer's deepest expressions, sincerest conversations with God and the depiction of hope in Him. Despite the mess ups, there is true repentance, and compassion for us as individuals and moreover as a human race. The Holy Spirit has guided me and God has sustained my life so that I can proclaim His works. Although some may see this as controversial I plead with you to be non judgmental for these are my encounters, stories, accounts, events and thoughts that many experience but are afraid of expressing in fear of being seen as odd. Hopefully as you journey with me you will realize that we are more of the same than different, especially when we recognize that it is all about being led by our Creator. When in doubt I dare you to try Him out! Take the challenge and surrender to that which already lies within you, just turn on that light switch, who I call friend, guide, comforter, vindicator and most of all partner. Put your seatbelt on and embrace my limitless journey with the Holy Spirit!

The Empty Nest The Second Time Around
By Ejay Wyndesh
In a series of heartwarming essays, author Ejay Wyndesh shares the wisdom and perspective gleaned from her early childhood through her senior citizen years to encourage women who suffer from “empty nest syndrome.” Follow Wyndesh through her various experiences, from growing up with immigrant grandparents to the angst of adolescence, and from being a mother to being a great-grandmother. Each stage of her life shaped her in a different way, and Wyndesh artfully expresses these changes in The Empty Nest the Second Time Around. At the heart of Wyndesh’s journey is her appreciation of previous generations’ traditions and loyalties. Decades of heartwarming, family-oriented experiences provide a realistic background for Wyndesh’s essays. Through her prose, she teaches upcoming generations that loving and honoring family is fun work, and that dedicating yourself and your life to obeying and serving God will strengthen your family tree’s branches for the future. But it’s also important to recognize your progress through the years and how each new level changes your perspective. If you’re feeling depressed by your empty nest, take a moment to ponder Wyndesh’s uplifting insights. They’ll inspire you to cherish your family memories and pass them on to future generations. A life long Pennsylvania resident, Ejay Wyndesh is a Christian great-grandmother and retired home-health care nurse.

Whose Body Is It Anyway?: Smart Alternative and Traditional Health Choices for Your Total Well-Being
By Joan Kenley
Like a fireside chat with a woman who cares, here's an essential guide to help women organize their thoughts and questions about alternative and traditional treatment choices-from the popular psychologist and women's health and speaking-voice expert. Joan Kenley's own frustrating, almost fatal search for the right medical choice for her "female condition" triggered her passion to help other women more easily understand the medical maze of options thrown at them.

A unique feature of Whose Body Is It Anyway? is its accessible format: the print is easy to read, and important points are in bold so that readers can zero in on the most pertinent information quickly. The book is filled with charts, diagrams, and simple graphics; a "Just Do It" checkup schedule; a diagnostic questionnaire ("Your Health History Is You") and the author's deeply inspiring "Promise Between Friends Contract"-to encourage a buddy sysem whereby two friends can help each other schedule important regular checkups and, if needed, offer companionship through illness.
