The United States is on the brink of total collapse. The military has been reduced to near extinction, economic turmoil saps hope, and anarchy threatens as world powers hover like vultures, eager to devour the remains. In a desperate move, a few powerful men call a secret meeting to plot the overthrow of the government. Fifty-five men came to Philadelphia in May of 1787 with a congressional charter to revise the Articles of Confederation. Instead they founded the longest lasting republic in world history.

May Sarton’s honest and engrossing journal of her seventieth year, spent living and working on the Maine coast May Sarton’s journals are a captivating look at a rich artistic life. In this, her ode to aging, she savors the daily pleasures of tending to her garden, caring for her dogs, and entertaining guests at her beloved Maine home by the sea. Her reminiscences are raw, and her observations are infused with the poetic candor for which Sarton—over the course of her decades-long career—became known. An enlightening glimpse into a time—the early 1980s—and an age, At Seventy is at once specific and universal, providing a unique window into septuagenarian life that readers of all generations will enjoy. At times mournful and at others hopeful, this is a beautiful memoir of the year in which Sarton, looking back on it all, could proclaim, “I am more myself than I have ever been.”

IntelCenter's Terrorism Incident Reference (TIR) series of books is designed to provide a professional-level reference resource to intelligence analysts, operators, security professionals, researchers and others working in the counterterrorism field. It provides a chronological breakout of all terrorist and rebel type activity between 2000-2007. The material for the series is drawn from IntelCenter's weekly World s Terrorist Groups - Intel Update (WTG-IU) reports. Reporting is heavily focused on incident type activity, such as bombings, shootings, kidnappings, etc., with some coverage of arrests, threats and other developments. The data contained in each item represents an analyst s best assessment of the most accurate information based upon available source reporting at that point in time and their knowledge of the area and groups involved. These items are not simply abstracts. All source information for each item is listed below in brackets. It is important to understand that the TIR series is only a starting point. While every attempt is made to be as comprehensive as possible, variations in source coverage, source availability, volume of activity and resource levels all impact the depth of coverage over time. Consequently, while it may appear that attacks have increased during one period this may simply be the result of additional press reporting. Likewise, an apparent decrease in attacks may be the result of a drop-off in coverage or temporary loss of access to a source. When researching patterns of activity or any type of quantitative or frequency type analysis, the TIR is an excellent starting point but needs to be augmented with additional resources.

This novel starts with a prologue dealing with the mythology surrounding the development of two different species of mankind: the group of people designated as Homo Sapiens and the much smaller subtype know as Cro-Magnon Man. The action starts immediately with the two groups clashing and then differentiating into the development of civilizations populated by Homo Sapiens but mentored by Cro-Magnon known as the Coruscus. As the adventure develops other themes come into play. “The capacity of the Coruscus to influence the whims of nature has been characterized by numerous titles, the most common of which is known as magic.” Magic is the undercurrent of this action adventure but there are more themes which become sophisticated in both concept and presentation. For example, the idea of life beyond death is explored. There are detailed description of Virgil’s journey into the realms of life beyond this physical plane. There are also metaphysical themes running through this novel with detailed descriptions of chakra meditations as necessary preparations for Virgil to enter into the realms beyond the first plane of physical life. The dark side of human nature is explored but mostly in the context of an adventure story about the Coruscus known as Virgil and his warrior companion known as Glaiden. The story describes how their relationship was developed and how their efforts to evade the overwhelming Roman forces of the rouge Coruscus known as Baracore. When evasion is no longer an option, battles ensue.
