Angel and the Ivory Tower by Don McAllister Summary

Angel and the Ivory Tower is the adventure tale of the outgoing Alice Howard (Angel) Burke who has lived life to the fullest as a pioneer aviator, a barnstormer, and even a war hero. Her life is intertwined with the greats of history, Hollywood and everyday life. People who read this work can't wait to see what Alice will do next. On the other hand, Great Nephew (The Ivory Tower) has never lived his life outside the world of his books. After losing his job with the University Great Nephew comes to Great Aunt Alice's farm to learn how to paint the farmhouse, record her history, and maybe even learn about the world beyond his shell. Great Nephew, while comical, is also the sum total of all of our fears and one can't help but cheer him on. This story is fun to read. The colorful characters are so real that you will think you know them. You will share their tragedies and triumphs, and will love them, cheer them on, and sometimes mourn their loss. To be quite old-fashioned this story has a lot of heart. You too will enjoy the lively story of Angel and the Ivory Tower.

The Pencil Man by Don McAllister Summary

"I LOVED the book! I laughed, I cried and couldn't wait to finish it and at the same time saved the last 10 pages for 2 days because I didn't want it to end! THANK YOU DON. It was great! I will recommend to all my friends!“ “These characters are so real. Are you sure this is fiction?” These are some of the reader reactions to Don McAllister’s first novel Angel and the Ivory Tower. The same vivid imagery and “can’t wait to read what’s next” style of writing can be found in this work The Pencil Man, Don’s second novel. The Pencil Man was a real person who lived in Anderson, Indiana during the 1950’s. He was a beggar who had no legs, moved about on a board with wheels, and sold pencils on the street. Many remember him, but no one seems to know who he was or what became of him. While no one knows the real story of the Pencil Man, this novel tries to give some idea of what it would be like to be The Pencil Man. The story includes the mystical realm of the spirits, experiences, and decisions that guide everyone’s fate. It also places one in the position of The Pencil Man himself, and shows us the world from a very different perspective. As with Angel and the Ivory Tower, you will be entertained, laugh, and cry, but more importantly your eyes will be opened to people around you who may now seem invisible.

Climbing the Ivory Tower by Kathy English; Sara Casey Summary

This book is about two women in their early fifties who decide to return to graduate school to work toward a Ph.D. in musicology. They don't know one another, they don't have any idea how taxing it will be, and they have been out of touch with recent scholarship. One of the women has five children and the other has two, but all are frisky and imaginative kids who keep up their antics to their mothers' despair. Their tales of adjustment to academic life, their interaction with the professors and classmates, and their attempt to survive confrontations with their children are sometimes hilarious and sometimes tragic, to say nothing of the medical obstacle that bars their path.

Hector-Neri Castañeda by H. Tomberlin Summary

The aim of this series is to inform both professional philosophers and a larger readership (of social and natural scientists, methodologists, mathematicians, students, teachers, publishers, etc.) about what is going on, who's who, and who does what in contemporary philosophy and PROFILES is designed to present the research activity and the logic. results of already outstanding personalities and schools and of newly emerging ones in the various fields of philosophy and logic. There are many Festschrift volumes dedicated to various philosophers. There is the celebrated Library of Living Philosophers edited by P. A. Schipp whose format influenced the present enterprise. Still they can only cover very little of the contemporary philosophical scene. Faced with a tremendous expansion of philosophical information and with an almost frightening division of labor and increasing specialization we need systematic and regular ways of keeping track of what happens in the profession. PROFILES is intended to perform such a function. Each volume is devoted to one or several philosophers whose views and results are presented and discussed. The profiled philosopher(s) will summarize and review his (their) own work in the main fields of significant contribution. This work will be discussed and evaluated by invited contributors. Relevant historical and/or biographical data, an up-to-date bibliography with short abstracts of the most important works and, whenever possible, references to significant reviews and discussion will also be included.

Earth's Man of Color by Dr. Oliver Akamnonu,Professor Ndu Eke Summary

A distinction is drawn between two very similarities based on the two types of characters that the same type of society produced. Orie, Puzo and Nmaku who hail from Angwa and the adjoining Ocha remained back in the village and made their lives almost permanently there rarely knowing what was going on in the outside world but being nonetheless greatly influenced by the latter. Their daily chores are dictated by the daily basic necessities of the moment and they have little to worry perpetually about. A lot of their life is controlled by the dictations and predictions of the traditional medicine man who occasionally misfires in his predictions which have no scientific basis supporting them. His situation is often taken advantage of by the political class who have little or nothing to lose even if the polity collapses. But Livinus on the other end of the spectrum emerges from the civil war and through a dint of luck and hard work studies hard and becomes a doctor. He even proceeds overseas despite a close shave by arsonists. He specializes and returns home to Akunwanta town from where he is again catapulted by fate and focus to become the governor of his state after a battle between titans eliminates the principal contestants. He at first meant well and had the intention of helping to reform society. Post election litigation and his lack of the economic leverage almost cost him his mandate. But again fate plays a hard one on him and because of his lack of cash he gets tied up to the economic vampires of his society. He is bailed out by a coalition of these vampires and narrowly reclaims his mandate only after colossal bribing of umpires who were least expected to soil their hands. He decides never to go begging ever again and hence he delves headlong into the rot and decay, not by his will but by the circumstances prevailing around him.

Blood Relations by Jes Battis Summary

The television series Buffy and Angel revolve around radical conceptions of family. Indeed, their coherence depends on the establishment of nontraditional families that admit vampires, demons, witches, werewolves, and other bizarre characters without censuring them for their peculiarities. This work argues that what makes these characters enduring and engaging is their critical family connections—for their most involved struggles occur not within the graveyard, but around the dinner table, just as the most challenging adversarial forces that they must face are not demons or vampires but the stuff of everyday life. What does “family” encompass within these two series? How does it relate to concepts of gender, sexuality, power and the supernatural as they emerge from the shows’ complex narratives? This book explores such questions. It also examines the “chosen family” (an idea marketed specifically by successful programs such as Friends and Sex in the City within the past ten years), juxtaposing it against various images of the fractured biological family displayed in both Buffy and Angel. Through eight chapters addressing various family-related aspects within both shows, this work plots the trajectory of this unstable notion of family, even as it is transformed, remediated, and rendered unrecognizable from a “family values” perspective by the unique and supernatural relationships that proliferate in Buffy and Angel.

Dynamics of International Relations by Walter C. Clemens Summary

Student-friendly and professor-endorsed, Dynamics of International Relations is an innovative, introductory level core text. It compares realist and idealist theories and the paradigm of interdependence against case studies of recurrent problems--why wage war, how to make peace, how to transcend conflict, when and where to mediate, how to increase GDP but also quality of life, and how to organize for peace and promote human rights. Against a backdrop of the threat of terrorism, Clemens clearly demonstrates both the danger and opportunities inherent in a growing global interdependence.

Betting the Farm on a Drought by Seamus McGraw Summary

Climate change has become one of the most polarizing issues of our time. Extremists on the left regularly issue hyperbolic jeremiads about the impending destruction of the environment, while extremists on the right counter with crass, tortured denials. But out in the vast middle are ordinary people dealing with stronger storms and more intense droughts than they’ve ever known. This middle ground is the focus of Betting the Farm on a Drought, a lively, thought-provoking book that lays out the whole story of climate change—the science, the math, and most importantly, the human stories of people fighting both the climate and their own deeply held beliefs to find creative solutions to a host of environmental challenges. Seamus McGraw takes us on a trip along America’s culturally fractured back roads and listens to farmers and ranchers and fishermen, many of them people who are not ideologically, politically, or in some cases even religiously inclined to believe in man-made global climate change. He shows us how they are already being affected and the risks they are already taking on a personal level to deal with extreme weather and its very real consequences for their livelihoods. McGraw also speaks to scientists and policymakers who are trying to harness that most renewable of American resources, a sense of hope and self-reliance that remains strong in the face of daunting challenges. By bringing these voices together, Betting the Farm on a Drought ultimately becomes a model for how we all might have a pragmatic, reasoned conversation about our changing climate.
