Genre: Fiction

Lance “Ham” Hamilton had made the kind of promise you don’t break to his dying Army buddy Mac. After their tour ended, they’d planned to “play cowboy,” just like days gone by. So Ham headed out West to a job waiting at The Lost Circus Ranch on the River of No Return, smack-dab in the middle of a million acres of “Nowhere, Idaho.” It was as good a place as any to disappear, cowboy up, and forget the past. Ham was looking forward to it. He’d had his fill of blood, sand, rocks, and following orders. But sometimes the past doesn’t stay the past. It seems no matter how far Ham goes, the wars of the Middle East follow. When Ham finds out his neighbors next door at Lone Wolf Canyon ranch aren’t running a summer camp, but instead, a secret terrorist training camp, he knows that justice must be done. And there will be blood.

Hadrian and the Triumph of Rome

Author: Anthony Everitt
Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 1588368963
Release Date: 2009-09-01
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Born in A.D. 76, Hadrian lived through and ruled during a tempestuous era, a time when the Colosseum was opened to the public and Pompeii was buried under a mountain of lava and ash. Acclaimed author Anthony Everitt vividly recounts Hadrian’s thrilling life, in which the emperor brings a century of disorder and costly warfare to a peaceful conclusion while demonstrating how a monarchy can be compatible with good governance. What distinguished Hadrian’s rule, according to Everitt, were two insights that inevitably ensured the empire’s long and prosperous future: He ended Rome’s territorial expansion, which had become strategically and economically untenable, by fortifying her boundaries (the many famed Walls of Hadrian), and he effectively “Hellenized” Rome by anointing Athens the empire’s cultural center, thereby making Greek learning and art vastly more prominent in Roman life. By making splendid use of recently discovered archaeological materials and his own exhaustive research, Everitt sheds new light on one of the most important figures of the ancient world.

Antitrust Law Second Edition

Author: Richard A. Posner
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226675785
Release Date: 2009-04-22
Genre: Law

When it was first published a quarter of a century ago, Richard Posner's exposition and defense of an economic approach to antitrust law was a jeremiad against the intellectual disarray that then characterized the field. As other perspectives on antitrust law have fallen away, Posner's book has played a major role in transforming the field of antitrust law into a body of economically rational principles largely in accord with the ideas set forth in the first edition. Today's antitrust professionals may disagree on specific practices and rules, but most litigators, prosecutors, judges, and scholars agree that the primary goal of antitrust laws should be to promote economic welfare, and that economic theory should be used to determine how well business practices conform to that goal. In this thoroughly revised edition, Posner explains the economic approach to new generations of lawyers and students. He updates and amplifies his approach as it applies to the developments, both legal and economic, in the antitrust field since 1976. The "new economy," for example, has presented a host of difficult antitrust questions, and in an entirely new chapter, Posner explains how the economic approach can be applied to new industries such as software manufacturers, Internet service providers, and those that provide communications equipment and services. "The antitrust laws are here to stay," Posner writes, "and the practical question is how to administer them better-more rationally, more accurately, more expeditiously, more efficiently." This fully revised classic will continue to be the standard work in the field.

When he travels to the Borderlands to gather support for the King, he finds himself entranced by a copper-haired English lass whose determination to serve the Bruce kindles an unexpected attraction.

Elaine longs for much more than the sheltered life of an English lady. The darkly handsome Highland warrior who arrives at her Borderland home provides the perfect opportunity for her to show that she's more than a silly, spoiled girl. She convinces Jerome to let her return to the Bruce's court with him, but when she accidentally uncovers a plot against the King, she realizes she and Jerome are the only ones who can save Scotland's hard-earned freedom. As the threat spirals out of control, can they unravel the mystery and protect their growing love?

The Monastery of the Heart

Author: Joan Chittister
Publisher: SPCK
ISBN: 9780281066209
Release Date: 2011-11-30
Genre: Religion

Every age has answered the questions and challenges of spiritual living in its own particular ways through its languages, arts, and lifestyles, giving seekers various concepts for guidance. In this original manifesto, bestselling author Joan Chittister delivers a roadmap based on the ancient Rule of Benedict that stands as a practical model upon which to build a satisfying life, despite the seemingly limitless (and at times meaningless) supply of options in the modern world. By giving spiritual seekers - individuals, couples, families, and small groups - a new opportunity to live a better life from the very centre of their world without ever having to withdraw from it, Chittister's new approach redefines Benedictine living for modern day seekers while remaining firmly rooted in its monastic values.
