Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Unpredictable. Symbolic. Mysterious. NIGHTMARISH SACRIFICE. A sinister nightmare repeats for the thirteenth time in a row. A sacrificed ghost is weeping on her own abandoned grave, disturbing Freya's dreams... and secret nightmares. A mask of invincibility is rising between a boy and the girl who loves him. Hypnotizing and intense, penetratingly gray as dead starless skies, Cardew's brutally beautiful eyes block his soul behind themselves like lurid mystifying mirrors that can flawlessly reflect others' feelings without showing any of his own... Assuming he ever had such. Nobody knows what hides behind his mask of a hero - least of all his lovely Freya, who lets her obsessions disguised as intuition lead her into his mesmerising labyrinth of insanity and love. When a million masks become the actor's face and they all explode in a single moment, what happens to his uncompromising pride? Best enemies can make the best of friends - but the worst of lovers. Unusual, tempting, and sinisterly beautiful, NIGHTMARISH SACRIFICE is written in a luxurious, excessive Gothic style, imaginatively elaborating on the invisible in its restlessly unpredictable story. At eleven o'clock in the graveyard, you can meet the truth in faces you haven't expected. But some truths are better off dead. And buried.

Download or read book Genocidal Nightmares PDF or another Format written by Abdelwahab El-Affendi and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2014-11-20 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book offers a novel and productive explanation of why 'ordinary' people can be moved to engage in destructive mass violence (or terrorism and the abuse of rights), often in large numbers and in unexpected ways. Its argument is that narratives of insecurity (powerful horror stories people tell and believe about their world and others) can easily make extreme acts appear acceptable, even necessary and heroic. As in action or horror movies, the script dictates how the 'hero' acts. The book provides theoretical justifications for this analysis, building on earlier studies but going beyond them in what amount to a breakthrough in mapping the context of mass violence. It backs its argument with a large number of case studies covering four continents, written by prominent scholars from the relevant countries or with deep knowledge of them. A substantial introduction by the UN's Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide demonstrates the policy relevance of this path-breaking work.

Download or read book Africa Now! PDF or another Format written by Adebusuyi Adeniran and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-11-20 with total page 453 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents relevant and timely endogenous procedures for addressing the challenge of transforming ideas into sustainable opportunities in Africa. It explores how Africa could be understood in the context of emerging global realities, providing alternative frameworks that will not just be participatory in conception and practice, but equally show a contextual workability for the varying aspects of the developmental enterprise in Africa. Despite having alternative and less cumbersome sources of funding, with commendable economic growth indices, and several economies among the fastest growing globally, African countries have been unable to transmute related opportunities into sustainable human development outcomes for majority of its citizenry. Over four rich sections the authors cover subjects ranging from environment and natural resource management, to governance, economy and sustainable development. The book continues with a section on Education and Human Development and a case study in transnationalism. The final section discusses crime, conflict and regional dynamics, including highly disputed topics such as forced migration and sex trade. This indispensable resource will be of great use to students and researches globally in fields such as sociology, anthropology, environmental studies, politics and economics with a focus on contemporary Africa, as well as to policy planners and human rights activists invested in the future development of Africa.
