Are you willing to entertain a different vision of the afterlife? Landry Sinclair has a story to tell—listen carefully. I played the professional career woman. Beneath the façade, I was lonely and ashamed.
My plans for upward mobility were squashed when I fell into the hands of a ruth serial killer.
I became entangled in his rich web of heinous acts. After he slipped a date-rape drug in my drink, then brutally tortured me, I awakened to an inescapable nightmarish realm on the wrong side of the mirror. And I was not alone. Will I be forced to idle here for an eternity, peering through the mirror into my former world, helply watching as a homicidal monster butchers woman after woman? We watch life through windows, mirrors, and doors—pay attention. I know because I sing the opus of the dead.
Not so very long ago it seemed reasonable to assert that the influence of religion on global politics was on the wane.
As the Western world became increasingly secular and the process of globalisation deepened, it seemed inevitable - on the surface at least - that the voice of religion was to be heard softly if it was to be heard at all. This has now changed, and changed perhaps irrevocably. As Jeff Haynes argues in this thought-provoking and important new book, various religious 'actors' are now significantly involved in international relations and have become a crucial influence on policy in a post-Westphalian world.
International Relations and Religion guides the reader through the complex issues at the heart of this topic with clarity and insight. The book starts with a close reading of the many theoretical and analytical concepts - notably Huntington and the clash of civilisations - that have grown up around this area and then concludes with a summary of the issues under discussion and attempts to put into context what it means to live in a world that is increasingly shaped by a whole host of diverse religious groups.

The birth control pill has been called the most important scientific advance of the 20th century. It has been credited, and blamed, with unleashing the sexual revolution, transforming gender roles, redefining marriage and reinventing the modern family. So it's all the more remarkable that something so potent is so misunderstood. This book traces the invention of the Pill half a century ago by its unlikely pioneers from the early feminists looking for a way to free women from the fears of frequent childbirth to a prominent Catholic doctor who was seeking a treatment for infertility and instead found a guarantee of it. It traces the social upheavals that coincided with the Pill's arrival and asks which ones it actually caused.
It follows the unfolding attitudes of women toward the first form of contraception that they could totally control—and the backlash in recent years among social conservatives who once welcomed the pill as a bing and now challenge it as a threat. And it explores the social, political and philosophical issues that men and women face when considering the most private questions of family life.
