Description : Intimate Enemies examines the transformation of Bolshevik Party ideology, language, and power relations during the crucial period leading up to Stalin's seizure of power. Igal Halfin uncovers this evolution in the language of Bolshevism. This language defined the methods for judging true party loyalty-in what Halfin describes as an examination of the 'hermeneutics of the soul,' and became the basis for prosecuting the Party's enemies, particularly the “intimate enemies” within the Party itself.
Description : God help him, he despised Jamie Munroe… …but not enough to try to kill her. In court, she'd helped his greedy ex-wife steal his fortune. In town, Jamie pretended he didn't exist. And yet, even she had to remember the hot chemistry they'd once shared in law school. A crazy part of him wanted to remind her…and keep her safe. Even though Russ Calloway had broken her heart years ago—and she was ashamed how often she watched him from her office window—accepting his protection felt so natural. Especially as her stalker's threats escalated. Where else did she feel safe but in the arms of her enemy?
Description : This edition, including a new preface by the author, explores the ways in which colonialism damaged the colonizing societies themselves, and how the likes of Gandhi resisted their rulers in British India by building on the lifestyle, values, and psychology of ordinary Indians and by heeding dissenting voices from the West.
Description : This document presents a brief on gender violence and reproductive health. It is stated that gender violence causes more death than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents or war and disability among women aged 15-44 years. The WHO estimated that at least 1 in 5 women has been physically or sexually abused by a man at some time in her life. Despite this, violence against women in the home was not explicitly declared a breach of women's human rights until the 1993 UN World Conference on Human Rights. The negative impact of gender violence on women's reproductive health is only just beginning to be recognized. Domestic violence and sexual violence are considered to be reproductive health problems because they are intertwined with sexuality, fidelity, pregnancy and childbearing. International consensus against gender violence and national laws that criminalize such abuse are important. This document is divided into eight sections: Uncovering a Global Tragedy; Recognition, Change and Resistance; Understanding Gender Violence; An Encyclopedia of Gender Violence; The Health Consequences of Gender Violence; What Can Be Done; Act Locally; and Community Action.

Lauren MacRae is only a woman. But her father's death has left her the leader of the Clan MacRae. Now it is up to her to defend her beloved Isle of Shot from the invading Northmen, even if it means going to her clan's sworn enemy, the powerful English overlord, Arion du Morgan, for help.

Like Lauren, Arion risks the mutiny of his soldiers by forming this risky alliance.

And as they join forces to fight for the land they both love, he will risk everything—even his very life—to claim what is his. From the Paperback edition.
Description : Intimate Enemies describes the creation of a journalistically induced panic in Great Britain during the the 1980s - a decade of intense concern about a closely related set of perceived problems: sexual abuse of children, child pornography, satanic rituals, and serial murder. It was widely alleged that such practices became more common during the decade, and the notoriety attracted major attention from the mass media, as well as from agencies in law enforcement, social welfare, and mental health.
