Summary:

Chrysta Williams should have been thrilled to have a powerful Meteor stone implanted into her arm. After all, the stone contains tremendous power that will protect her from harm and even allow her to travel through time. Yet when she's forced to go to the Black Hills to discover why they're inexplicably recovering from the devastating Meteor Impact, she's terrified. Especially since the same mysterious force that allows the Black Hills to heal will also deactivate her Meteor stone. But what truly scares her the most is that everyone who has been sent before her, has never been seen again.As she nervously teleports into the Black Hills, she's unaware that another survivor, who's wielding a highly advanced and extremely destructive Meteor stone, is preparing to attack. And if Chrysta doesn't figure out a way to stop him, she won't make it home either."Chrysta backed away from him. She absolutely could not let him touch her. She began to panic for each wobbly step backwards she took; he took a step forward towards her. Sooner or later, she knew he would make contact."

Summary:

Robust financial markets support capitalism, they don't imperil it. But in 2008, Washington policymakers were compelled to replace private risk-takers in the financial system with government capital so that money and credit flows wouldn't stop, precipitating a depression. Washington's actions weren't the start of government distortions in the financial industry, Nicole Gelinas writes, but the natural result of 25 years' worth of such distortions. In the early eighties, modern finance began to escape reasonable regulations, including the most important regulation of all, that of the marketplace. The government gradually adopted a "too big to fail" policy for the largest or most complex financial companies, saving lenders to failing firms from losses. As a result, these companies became impervious to the vital market discipline that the threat of loss provides. Adding to the problem, Wall Street created financial instruments that escaped other reasonable limits, including gentle constraints on speculative borrowing and requirements for the disclosure of important facts. The financial industry eventually posed an untenable risk to the economy -- a risk that culminated in the trillions of dollars' worth of government bailouts and guarantees that Washington scrambled starting in late 2008. Even as banks and markets seem to heal, lenders to financial companies continue to understand that the government would protect them in the future if necessary. This implicit guarantee harms economic growth, because it forces good companies to compete against bad. History and recent events make clear what Washington must do. First, policymakers must reintroduce market discipline to the financial world. They can do so by re-creating a credible, consistent way in which big financial companies can fail, with lenders taking their warranted losses. Second, policymakers can reapply prudent financial regulations so that markets, and the economy, can better withstand inevitable excesses of optimism and pessimism. Sensible regulations have worked well in the past and can work well again. As Gelinas explains in this richly detailed book, adequate regulation of financial firms and markets is a prerequisite for free-market capitalism -- not a barrier to it.

Summary:

"...the best extant map of our sonic shadowlands, and it has changed how I listen."—Alex Ross, The New Yorker "...an essential survey of contemporary music."—New York Times "…sharp, provacative and always on the money. The listening list alone promises months of fresh discovery, the main text a fresh new way of navigating the world of sound."—The Wire 2017 Music Book of the Year—Alex Ross, The New Yorker Music after the Fall is the first book to survey contemporary Western art music within the transformed political, cultural, and technological environment of the post–Cold War era. In this book, Tim Rutherford-Johnson considers musical composition against this changed backdrop, placing it in the context of globalization, digitization, and new media. Drawing connections with the other arts, in particular visual art and architecture, he expands the definition of Western art music to include forms of composition, experimental music, sound art, and crossover work from across the spectrum, inside and beyond the concert hall. Each chapter is a critical consideration of a wide range of composers, performers, works, and institutions, and develops a broad and rich picture of the new music ecosystem, from North American string quartets to Lebanese improvisers, from electroacoustic music studios in South America to ruined pianos in the Australian outback. Rutherford-Johnson puts forth a new approach to the study of contemporary music that relies less on taxonomies of style and technique than on the comparison of different responses to common themes of permission, fluidity, excess, and loss.

Summary:

“That’s the thing about falling. It doesn’t go on indefinitely, and it rarely ends well . . . ” In her page-turning fiction debut, neuropsychologist Kylie Ladd delivers a searing portrait of two marriages united and betrayed by friendship. “I had been married three years when I fell in love,” begins Kate, a firecracker of a woman who thought she’d found the yin to her yang in Cary, her sensible and adoring husband. For their friend Luke—a charismatic copywriter who loves women and attention in equal measure, and preferably together—life has been more than sweet beside Cressida, the dutiful pediatric oncologist who stole his heart. But when a whimsical flirtation between Kate and Luke turns into something far more dangerous, the foursome will be irrevocably intertwined by more than just their shared history. After the Fall follows the origin and fallout of the most passionate of affairs through the eyes of all four characters, unveiling the misunderstandings and unspoken needs that lie beneath our search for love and connection. The narrative moves effortlessly between past and present, painting a nostalgic picture of the two marriages at their most idealistic—the exact moment when like turned to love—and at their most volatile. Thanks to the boundless compassion with which Ladd draws her characters, one can’t help but root for them as they wrestle between newfound desire and remembrances of time past, all the while spinning toward an inevitable conclusion. Steeped in psychological insight and raw emotion, After the Fall is an unsettling novel of the many ways we love and hurt each other. From the Hardcover edition.

Summary:

What do you do when you receive the call that your child has just died of a horrific accident? Your worst nightmare has just come true. Where do you turn? How do you breathe? Is this real? Do you want to know the gruesome details, or would you rather not know? Haunting questions are just a small dose of the beginning of the end of your life when you lose a child. As you close your eyes at night, if rest comes, you know for certain, you will be dead of a broken heart by morning. After the Fall was written about my son, Corey Kissling, who died tragically on June 11, 2008. While on his high school senior trip, Corey fell to his death from a sixth-floor window of a hotel. Our anticipation for his homecoming would come true, only his return was in a casket. This book has taken me on a six plus year journey of very, very dark places in my heart, and how at every turn, when I felt like giving up, Jesus Christ stepped in and showed me and my family the way. This book did not take six non-stop years of writing, but rather brief moment by moment etchings. It was very hard to force myself to go to those dark days and rip the scab of raw emotion off of my heart. This book had to be written. I made that promise to God a long time ago. Every day that I left it undone, I felt that Holy Spirit nudging in my heart that this had to be in the hands of parents, prospective parents, and even their children. It is our deepest prayer, that out of our loss, Christ will get the gain, and working through us in helping bring others to Him. Our life's mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, glorifying our Lord, and honoring the memory of our beautiful son, Corey Kissling. May we never forget Kiss, "NFK 45." Won't you join us on our journey?

Summary:

Russia's first decade after the collapse of the Soviet Union has been simultaneously tumultuous and transformative. For most of the 1990s the Russian economy was in free fall, the legal system in absentia, and the majority of citizens engaged primarily in survival efforts. Not surprisingly, the former superpower also struggled to adapt to its greatly diminished means and status. Russia after the Fall is a collection of essays by internationally renowned experts on Russian politics, economics, society, and foreign and security policy. The volume is comprehensive in its coverage of key topics as well as reflective of contemporary debates on developments in Russia. The essays provide retrospective analyses on how Russia has fared in its reform efforts and a prospective look at the challenges ahead. This book will be of interest to scholars, students, and to a general audience seeking to better understand where Russia has been and where it is going. Contributors include Anders Åslund (Carnegie Endowment), Harley Balzer (Georgetown University), Clifford Gaddy (Brookings Institution), James Goldgeier (George Washington University), Rose Gottemoeller (Carnegie Endowment), Thomas E.

Summary:

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was the beginning of one of the most interesting natural experiments in recent history. The East German transition from a Communist state to part of the Federal Republic of Germany abruptly created a new social order as old institutions were abolished and new counterparts imported. This unique situation provides an exceptional opportunity to examine the central tenets of life course sociology. The empirical chapters of this book draw a comprehensive picture of life course transformation, demonstrating how the combination of life course dynamics coupled with an extraordinary pace of system change affect individual lives. How much turbulence was created by the transition and how much stability was preserved? How did the qualifications and resources acquired before 1989 influence the fortunes in the restructured economy? How did the privatization and reorganization of firms impact individuals? Did the transformation experiences differ by age/cohort and gender? How stable were social networks at work and in the family? Were personality characteristics important mediators of post-1989 success or failure or were they rather changed by them? How specific were the East German life trajectories in comparison with Poland and West-Germany?

Summary:

What prevents cities whose economies have been devastated by the flight of human and monetary capital from returning to self-sufficiency? Looking at the cumulative effects of urban decline in the classic post-industrial city of Camden, New Jersey, historian Howard Gillette, Jr., probes the interaction of politics, economic restructuring, and racial bias to evaluate contemporary efforts at revitalization. In a sweeping analysis, Gillette identifies a number of related factors to explain this phenomenon, including the corrosive effects of concentrated poverty, environmental injustice, and a political bias that favors suburban amenity over urban reconstruction. Challenging popular perceptions that poor people are responsible for the untenable living conditions in which they find themselves, Gillette reveals how the effects of political decisions made over the past half century have combined with structural inequities to sustain and prolong a city's impoverishment. Even the most admirable efforts to rebuild neighborhoods through community development and the reinvention of downtowns as tourist destinations are inadequate solutions, Gillette argues. He maintains that only a concerted regional planning response—in which a city and suburbs cooperate—is capable of achieving true revitalization. Though such a response is mandated in Camden as part of an unprecedented state intervention, its success is still not assured, given the legacy of outside antagonism to the city and its residents. Deeply researched and forcefully argued, Camden After the Fall chronicles the history of the post-industrial American city and points toward a sustained urban revitalization strategy for the twenty-first century.

Summary:

Abigail Walker and Jarvis Daniels are longtime sweethearts headed in opposite directions. Abby, an aspiring cellist, wants out of her humble Detroit surroundings and is willing to shed blood, sweat, and tears to make it happen. Jarvis, on the other hand, is perfectly content with life. For him there's plenty of time to become a "responsible adult." For now, heâŁĭs got everything he could want: a roof over his head, a PlayStation, and the love of a good woman. When Abby's music career takes off and she moves to Chicago, Jarvis gets the boot---sort of. Abby still loves him, but his penchant for faded sweaters and meatball subs just doesnâŁĭt fit into her new, sophisticated world of designer gowns and concert halls. They're in different leagues and Abby makes no qualms of reminding him of it whenever she deigns to visit him. When the couple is involved in a near-fatal car crash, they are broken, stripped, and broken again both stumbling through a journey of healing and self-discovery as they struggle to accept the merciful hand of the only One who can help them up after a fall.

Summary:

I was settin' up to live a good life, the kinda life I'd fought hard to deserve.With a good woman--the best woman--at my side, a degree under my belt, and the whole world at my feet, I was livin' the kinda happily ever after usually denied the rebellious and the criminal. I'd turned my back on that kinda life, thinkin' I needed that clean, wholesome kinda happy.Then the devil came dressed in the wings of an angel and took someone from me.And I realized I was wrong.There was no clean and wholesome for a man like me with poetry in his heart and outlaw in his blood. The life I'd been livin' was only purgatory, holding me over until the time came for me to descend into Hell and pick up the tarnished crown that awaited me.I was condemning my woman to a life of violence, blood, and heartache, but I had to hope she'd step up and finally be the rough and tumble queen to my Fallen MC king.*After the Fall can be read as a stand-alone romance, but you first meet the couple in Lessons in Corruption (The Fallen Men, #1)*

Summary:

In the quiet of a New Zealand winter's night, a rescue helicopter is sent to airlift a five-year-old boy with severe internal injuries. He's fallen from the upstairs veranda of an isolated farmhouse, and his condition is critical. At first, Finn's fall looks like a horrible accident; after all, he's prone to sleepwalking. Only his frantic mother, Martha McNamara, knows how it happened. And she isn't telling. Not yet. Maybe not ever. Tragedy isn't what the McNamara family expected when they moved to New Zealand. For Martha, it was an escape. For her artist husband Kit, it was a dream. For their small twin boys, it was an adventure. For sixteen-year-old Sacha, it was the start of a nightmare. They end up on the isolated east coast of the North Island, seemingly in the middle of a New Zealand tourism campaign. But their peaceful idyll is soon shattered as the choices Sacha makes lead the family down a path which threatens to destroy them all. Martha finds herself facing a series of impossible decisions, each with devastating consequences for her family.
