Against Our Better Judgment Book Description:

"Prodigiously documented... Alison Weir must be highly commended for throwing such a brilliantly hard light on the relationship between the United States and Israel. I hope this marvelous book gets all the attention it deserves." – Ambassador Andrew Killgore Soon after WWII, US statesman Dean Acheson warned that creating Israel on land already inhabited by Palestinians would “imperil” both American and all Western interests in the region. Despite warnings such as this one, President Truman supported establishing a Jewish state on land primarily inhabited by Muslims and Christians. Few Americans today are aware that US support enabled the creation of modern Israel. Even fewer know that US politicians pushed this policy over the forceful objections of top diplomatic and military experts. As this work demonstrates, these politicians were bombarded by a massive pro-Israel lobbying effort that ranged from well-funded and very public Zionist organizations to an “elitist secret society” whose members included Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. AGAINST OUR BETTER JUDGMENT brings together meticulously sourced evidence to illuminate a reality that differs starkly from the prevailing narrative. It provides a clear view of the history that is key to understanding one of the most critically important political issues of our day.

Against My Better Judgment Book Description:

When freshman year at the University of Alabama draws to a close, Sara Donovan finds herself grappling with the same old question—listen to her head or follow her heart. What she ends up doing is purchasing an Egyptian souvenir funerary mask, and after a mysterious phone call, she's certain a ring of antiquities smugglers are operating in Tuscaloosa. With finals never far from her mind and her return to 'Bama hanging in the balance, she should be studying. Instead she launches her own investigation to prove her mask is indeed a stolen artifact, and not a cheap trinket. When it comes time to snoop, Sara is more than ready, or at least she was until a hot new teaching assistant moves in next door. Suddenly she learns things are never as they seem. Ever.

Death of a Schemer Book Description:

Frank May’s law office is in San Mateo, California, and his practice often deals with wills and estates. Dead clients are an essential part of an estates practice, but these are, for almost everybody, quite natural deaths. Yet somehow, through some quirk of fate, unnatural deaths seem to plague Frank’s clients and those close to them. And he gets drawn into these mysterious affairs. Andrew Wright, a schemer if there ever was one, was not exactly a client. Andrew had befriended a woman well past her mental prime, living in a big house in Palo Alto. Andrew took over the house, renting out rooms to a mixed group of people. Then Andrew came to Frank with a hare-brained plan: to install cameras in the house and film an actual murder. Frank wants no part of it ... but agrees, in a weak moment, to meet Andrew about the plan. That night, Andrew is murdered. Frank is, despite himself, entangled in the mysterious death of this schemer. But who killed Andrew? Was it one of the housemates? One of them, at least, has a sinister past — a past that seems to include getting away with murder. And what role did another of Andrew’s schemes — his collection of lurid tales about earthquakes, sex, and embarrassing moments — play in his death? After a copycat murder occurs nearby, the mystery only grows deeper. A Frank May Mystery from QP Books, an imprint of Quid Pro Books.

Brand Jesus Book Description:

American evangelical faith has been corrupted by a series of forces at work in Americaconsumerism, the economy, and American politicsand has become idolatrous. Using Pauls letter to the Romans as a starting point, Stevenson reads the letter to todays American church.With provocative discussions of Christian hypocrisy, megachurches, the ways in which Christian ideas are distressingly combined with private property and market-driven economics, the blurring boundaries between law and religion, and other topics, Stevenson offers an analysis of where the American church finds itself, and how that place is quite different from that which Paul wrote of. He seeks to answer the question; in this age of consumerism and politicization of religion, how will the church reject the idolatry of Jesus as brand, and embrace Him as He asked to be?

Judging Plans and Projects Book Description:

This study develops an approach to the evaluation of plan and project alternatives. The difficult trade offs between technical or social goals and the inevitable environmental impacts are discussed in socio-politcs terms and a case is put for the early mobilization of citizen groups in the process of assessment. Current evaluation methods tend to be either threateningly mathematical or largely intuitive and often ignore the essentially political nature of public choice. The methodology developed in this book enables a final deicision to be made based on the use of rational judgement aids placed alongside formally structured public interest arguments representing the different social policies of the interested groups. This new method informs decision-makers by bringing together the strengths of analysis and richness of human values. Particular attention if paid to the wide range of judgement aids available to the planning professional and examples of their use are presented in appendices.
