Timothy Goeglein spent nearly eight years in the White House as President George W. Bush's key point of contact to American conservatives and the faith-based world and was frequently profiled in the national news media. But when a plagiarism scandal prompted his resignation, Goeglein chose not to dodge it but confront it, and was shown remarkable grace by the president. In fact, Bush showed more concern for Goeglein and his family than any personal political standing. So begins The Man in the Middle, Goeglein's unique insider account of why he believes most of the 43rd president's in-office decisions were made for the greater good, and how many of those decisions could serve as a blueprint for the emergence of a thoughtful, confident conservatism. From a fresh perspective, Goeglein gives behind-the-scenes accounts of key events during that historic two-term administration, reflecting on what was right and best about the Bush years. He was in Florida for the 2000 election recount, at the White House on 9/11, and watched Bush become a reluctant but effective wartime president. Goeglein, now the vice president with Focus on the Family, also looks back at how Bush handled matters like stem cell research, faith-based initiatives, the emergence of the Values Voters, the nominations of both Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito-in which Goeglein had a direct role-and debates over the definition of marriage. In all, The Man in the Middle backs historians who view the legacy of President George W. Bush in a favorable light, recognizing his conservative ideas worth upholding in order to better shape our nation and change the world.

A Dictionary of Sexual Language and Imagery in Shakespearean and Stuart Literature

Providing an alphabetical listing of sexual language and locution in 16th and 17th-century English, this book draws especially on the more immediate literary modes: the theatre, broadside ballads, newsbooks and pamphlets. The aim is to assist the reader of Shakespearean and Stuart literature to identify metaphors and elucidate meanings; and more broadly, to chart, through illustrative quotation, shifting and recurrent linguistic patterns. Linguistic habit is closely bound up with the ideas and assumptions of a period, and the figurative language of sexuality across this period is highly illuminating of socio-cultural change as well as linguistic development. Thus the entries offer as much to those concerned with social history and the history of ideas as to the reader of Shakespeare or Dryden.

It should have been an easy assignment, but in Jacob Hamilton's world nothing is. The contact, a middle aged man, left under the wheels of a high speed train, with nothing to show but a folder marked FOR YOUR EYES ONLY. To make matters worse, the target, a Russian petty thief known as Andrei Ovinko, has a secret past, a past that Jacob knows only too well, for you see Ovinko moonlights as an assassin. In his mind Jacob knows once contracts have been exchanged there is no going back on the deal, however there is one, small, fly in the ointment, the contract has been forged. The question is why and for what purpose? Bound by his own set of moralistic codes, Jacob knowing he has no choice, begins the hunt in hope, that by finding Ovinko, he will find out who is behind the forgery. Whether by design or by pure luck, he unwittingly stumbles on a hidden message contained within an old captain's desk submerged in an old shipwreck at the bottom of the Bering Sea, it is this clandestine note from the past that has him asking more questions than he has answers for.Torn between his devotion to the brotherhood and his desire to decode the hidden message, Jacob begins to ponder his own role as an assassin, a choice (or rather a decision) that will have consequences. Instead of doing what his asked of him, he does what is needed of him. For once, his life as an assassin in The House Of The Hidden Blade, becomes a paradox of the man history determines him to be.
