☯ Full Synopsis : "Freedom comes at a cost... Ella was genetically engineered to be the perfect pet-graceful, demure...and kept. In a daring move, she escaped her captivity and took refuge in Canada. But while she can think and act as she pleases, the life of a liberated pet is just as confining as the Congressman's gilded cage. Her escape triggered a backlash, and now no one's safe, least of all the other pets. But she's trapped, unable to get back to Penn-the boy she loves-or help the girls who need her. Back in the United States, pets are turning up dead. With help from a very unexpected source, Ella slips deep into the dangerous black market, posing as a tarnished pet available to buy or sell. If she's lucky, she'll be able to rescue Penn and expose the truth about the breeding program. If she fails, Ella will pay not only with her life, but the lives of everyone she's tried to save..."Article| Kate Jarvik Birch| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Tarnished
☯ Full Synopsis : "Bad or toxic leadership, abusive supervision, and petty tyranny in organizations are perennial issues. But to date, there has been little effort to examine the scope and nature of bad leadership in the military. Tarnished rectifies that lack of attention by defining the problems and suggesting possible solutions appropriate to the military's unique structure and situation. Leadership is central to the identity of the U.S. military. Service academies and precommissioning processes have traditionally stressed the development of conscientious leaders of character. The services regularly publish doctrinal works and professional journal articles focusing on various aspects of leadership. Unsurprisingly, in most of those publications leadership is presented as a universally positive notion, a solution to problems, and something to be developed through an extensive and costly system of professional military education. Leadership expert George E. Reed, however, focuses on individual experiences of toxic leadership at the organizational level, arguing that because toxic leadership has such a detrimental impact on the military organizational culture, additional remediation measures are needed. Reed also demonstrates how system dynamics and military culture themselves contribute to the problem. Most significant, the book provides cogent advice and insights to those suffering from toxic leaders, educators developing tomorrow's military leaders, and military administrators working to repair the current system."Article| George E.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Peg always felt a little blurred, a little lacking in definition. Her mother died when she was six, her father simply disappeared, and she was brought up by her grandparents and her obese, bedridden aunt. But, despite all this, she never developed the habit of asking questions. At least, not until she met Loz, her straight-talking, psychotherapeutically literate girlfriend, who urges her to confront her demons. But as the skeletons come tumbling out of the family closet and the full horror of the past begins to reveal itself, Peg starts to wonder whether her youthful lack of curiosity might not have been a good thing. A very good thing indeed..."Article| Julia Crouch| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Lone Star Tarnished
☯ Full Synopsis : "Texas pride, like everything else in the state, is larger than life. So, too, perhaps, are the state’s challenges. Lone Star Tarnished, 2nd edition approaches public policy in the nation’s most populous "red state" from historical, comparative, and critical perspectives. The historical perspective provides the scope for asking how various policy domains have developed in Texas history, regularly reaching back to the state’s founding and with substantial data for the period 1950 to the present. In each chapter, Cal Jillson compares Texas public policy choices and results with those of other states and the United States in general. Finally, the critical perspective allows us to question the balance of benefits and costs attendant to what is often referred to as "the Texas way" or "the Texas model." Jillson delves deeply into seven substantive policy chapters, covering the most important policy areas in which state governments are active. The second edition includes completely rewritten first and second chapters, as well as updates throughout the book and revised figures and tables. Through Jillson's lively and lucid prose, students are well equipped to analyze how Texas has done and is doing compared to selected states and the national average over time and today. Readers will also come away with the necessary tools to assess the many claims of Texas’s exceptionalism."Article| Cal Jillson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Tarnished brass
☯ Full Synopsis : "Canada's once-proud armed forces face an undeniable crisis, triggered by leadership that places self-interest and personal gain before duty. In this provocative, unsettling book, former soldier Scott Taylor and veteran author Brian Nolan blow the lid off crime and corruption in the Canadian high command, pointing out necessary changes to restore glory to this tarnished instituation. The brutal 1993 murder of sixteen-year-old Shidane Arone by Canadian peacekeepers in Somalia shocked Canada. It was not an isolated incident, buy a symptom of greater abuses pervading Canada's military. From cover-ups and the destruction of evidence to fraud and other misuses of power, corruption has been rampant in the armed forces. Taylor and Nolan uncover evidence of taxpayers-funded holidays and luxury fishing camps for top brass, cover-ups and subverted justice in cases of rape and murder, and privateering of relief supplies intended for hospitals, among other outrages. This expose is a wake-up call for all Canadians, an essential examination of a crisis that threatens the very core of Canada's military."Article| Scott Taylor, Brian Nolan| Statement ..."
