Anarchy Rules For eighteen years, Captain Jani Kilian has been hiding from her bloody past. Now she faces trial for what she once did, what she knows now, and what she has become. Eighteen years ago, she was saved by a radical -- and illegal -- medical procedure that added alien genetic material to her own. But her hybrid body is breaking down. And so is everything else. Relations between the human and alien "idomeni" races are deteriorating as rapidly as Jani Kilian's augmentation. And Jani's reemergence has caused old wounds to reopen and new wounds to form. Perhaps it's time for a damaged soldier to stop fighting; to let the desperate architects of a vast and devouring conspiracy keep the truth well hidden; to let the universe and everyone in it go straight to Hell. Perhaps not...

"Flying, spying, dying--Rules of Engagement is the real straight Navy stuff. Better strap yourself to the chair for this one. I loved it." --Stephen Coonts, author of Fortunes of War. Rules of Engagement marks the spectacular debut of Gordon Kent, the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have served in the U. S. Navy. They have crafted a tale with striking authenticity and remarkable psychological depth sure to appeal to the fans of Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts, and Dale Brown. Shortly before the Gulf War, Alan Craik, a young U. S. Navy Intelligence officer, is posted to one of two aircraft carriers headed toward the Persian Gulf. On board the other is his father. When both take part in a nighttime strike on the Iranian coast, Lt. Craik's father's A-6 is hit and plunges into the sea. Shocked by the loss of this commanding figure in his life, Craik refuses to accept the official explanation that a lucky strike from an Iranian missile has downed the plane. After further investigation his instincts tell him the real story is much more disturbing: someone on his father's ship sabotaged his plane and he's still on board. The hunt becomes increasingly urgent when Craik discovers that the Navy may be harboring not just one traitor, but two: a father-and-son team who have been betraying their country for years. As Craik gets closer and closer to uncovering them, they will risk everything to keep their secrets.

The control of competition is designed, at best, to reconcile socioeconomic stability with innovation, and at worst, to keep competitors out of the market. In this respect, the nineteenth century was no more liberal than the eighteenth century. Even during the presumed liberal nineteenth century, legal regulation played a major role in the economy, and the industrial revolution was based on market institutions and organisations formed during the second half of the seventeenth century. If indeed there is a break in the history of capitalism, it should be situated at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with the irruption of mass production, consumption and the welfare state, which introduced new forms of regulation. This book provides a new intellectual, economic and legal history of capitalism from the eighteenth century to the early twentieth century. It analyzes the interaction between economic practices and legal constructions in France and compares the French case with other Western countries during this period, such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and Italy.

The Rules of Normal Eating: A Commonsense Approach for Dieters, Overeaters, Undereaters, Emotional Eaters, and Everyone in Between!by Karen R. Koenig
Here is a book for all eaters who yearn to improve their relationship with food. It gives the answers to what struggling overeaters, undereaters, and chronic dieters all want to know: how to be comfortable around food and find true pleasure in eating. Written in easy-to-understand every day language, The Rules of "Normal" Eating lays out the four basic rules that "normal" eaters follow instinctively-eating when they're hungry, choosing foods that satisfy them, eating with awareness and enjoyment, and stopping when they're full or satisfied. Along with specific skills and techniques which help promote change, The Rules of "Normal" Eating presents a powerful, proven cognitive-behavioral model of transformation that targets beliefs, feelings, and behaviors about food and eating and moves the reader toward genuine physical and emotional fulfillment. Readers will learn how to reprogram their dysfunctional beliefs about food and eating, manage uncomfortable feelings without turning to food, and establish new eating habits that tune their bodies in to natural sensations of hunger, pleasure, satisfaction and satiation. Chocked full of humorous insights, compassion, and practical wisdom gleaned from a therapist and educator who used to diet and binge with the best of them, this book teaches the reader how to think and behave around food the way that "normal" eaters do. The Rules of "Normal" Eating digs deep and addresses how under- and overeaters can overcome the underlying conflicts that often plague and prevent them from becoming "normal" eaters-difficulty sensing what is enough for them, holding onto a mindset of deprivation and self-denial, feeling undeserving of genuine pleasure, and a lack of awareness and skill for effective emotional and physical self-re.

He will live his life as usual: kiss his wife, go to work-and slowly, carefully, make a series of 'unfortunate investments' totalling 64 million dollars. But if he refuses to cooperate, tells anyone, or attempts to get help, the price will be much higher. Any transgression from his kidnapper's orders will trigger a death--one by one, Cain's family and friends will be murdered in a seemingly accidental, yet agonizingly slow manner. For Cain's abductor is a criminal whose greed is exceeded only by his sadism--and Cain, terrified and desperate, but unwilling to give up his family and his life, will soon understand his kidnapper's talent for atrocity.
Considered a landmark work when it was first published in 1895, The Rules of Sociological Method represents Emile Durkheim's manifesto for sociology. He argues forcefully for the objective, scientific, and methodological underpinnings of sociology as a discipline and establishes guiding principles for future research. With a substantial new introduction by the leading Durkheim scholar Steven Lukes, the book explains and sets into context Durkheim's argument. The still-controversial debates about The Rules of Sociological Method's six chapters are examined and their relevance to present-day sociology is discussed. The edition also includes Durkheim's subsequent thoughts on method in the form of articles, debates with scholars from other disciplines, and letters. This is an essential resource for students and scholars hoping to deepen their understanding of one of the pioneering voices in modern sociology and twentieth-century social thought. Durkheim's methodology is still relevant today. With substantial notes on context, this revised edition will greatly ease the task of students and scholars studying Durkheim and will engage a new generation of readers with his rich contribution to the field.
