I Wouldn't Start from Here

Mueller wanders the world's failed states, ravaged war zones, and desolate no-man's-lands to comprehend why we snatch war from the jaws of peace, why so much that can go wrong does go wrong, over and over again (Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and others), and how some conflicts suddenly, quietly, inexplicably seem to find themselves solved (Northern Ireland, Albania, Abkhazia).Rather than offer a plaintive cry of ''why can't we all get along,'' Mueller observes that for the most part, people get along just fine; extremist minority groups are the major culprits. Yet it's a surprisingly sunny book given the mire in which he finds himself. Mueller's journey is an entertaining and eye-opening tour of the world's moral basements, in which he meets influential panjandrums (Al Gore, Gerry Adams, Bono, Paddy Ashdown), any number of assorted warlords and revolutionaries, and a sprinkling of peacemakers and do-gooders. He also manages to get shot at a couple of times, locked up once, and taken on a guided tour by one of the world's most infamous terrorist organizations.

As the only female member of an elite team at Nine Circles Security, Kayla Matthews was among the best. She had everything she wanted: dream job, loving fiancé, and teammates that were more like family. Then one day, her world came crashing down. With her life in turmoil, Kayla must navigate her emotions about life, loss, and her growing feelings for a teammate. To make matters worse, she’s also the target of a killer. Reece McIntyre was among the best in the world at what he does. Making the world a better place one bad guy at a time was what he lived for until Kayla, literally, crashed into him on her first day at work. She's sexy, funny, intelligent, and the one woman that can take him down in every way possible. After tragedy strikes and Kayla's life is placed in the crosshairs of a killer, Mac vows to stay by her side and protect her with his dying breath if necessary. The question is: Can they catch their enemy before he catches them? What would you do if your life was in the crosshairs?

Beyond Health

Beyond Health applies post-structuralist and postmodern ideas to issues of health and health care to provide a radical re-think of how health is to be understood. It offers a perspective in which health is seen as an affirmation of potential rather than as a narrow biopsychosocial construct. The author develops his notion of arche-health and in so doing provides a lucid account of a wide range of post-structuralist and postmodern theoretical perspectives and their relevance to the field of health. This text explains complex ideas so even a reader with no previous background in the topic can grasp it. In each chapter the author explains and applies a selection of theoretical perspectives.
