Cultural Identity in Minoan Crete: Social Dynamics in the Neopalatial Period

by Ellen Adams

Neopalatial Crete - the 'Golden Age' of the Minoan Civilization - possessed palaces, exquisite artefacts, and iconography with pre-eminent females. While lacking in fortifications, ritual symbolism cloaked the island, an elaborate bureaucracy logged transactions, and massive storage areas enabled the redistribution of goods. We cannot read the Linear A script, but the libation formulae suggest an island-wide koine. Within this cultural identity, there is considerable variation in how the Minoan elites organized themselves and others on an intra-site and regional basis. This book explores and celebrates this rich, diverse and dynamic culture through analyses of important sites, as well as Minoan administration, writing, economy and ritual. Key themes include the role of Knossos in wider Minoan culture and politics, the variable modes of centralization and power relations detectable across the island, and the role of ritual and cult in defining and articulating elite control.

Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department

by J. Christian Adams

The Department of Justice Watches Over the LawBut Who Watches the Watchmen?The Department of Justice is America's premier federal law enforcement agency. And according to J. Christian Adams, it's also a base used by leftwing radicals to impose a fringe agenda on the American people.A five-year veteran of the DOJ and a key attorney in pursuing the New Black Panther voter intimidation case, Adams recounts the shocking story of how a once-storied federal agency, the DOJ's Civil Rights division has degenerated into a politicized fiefdom for far-left militants, where the enforcement of the law depends on the race of the victim.In Injustice, Adams reveals:The inside story of how the Obama DOJ spiked the voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party--and the Panthers' little-known public appearance with ObamaHow the Obama administration changed DOJ hiring policy to ensure radical leftists would dominate the Civil Rights Division The Obama DOJ's bizarre agenda, from insisting on kids' rights to attend school dressed as transvestites, to litigating for teachers' rights to take paid vacations to MeccaHow the DOJ has repeatedly sided with political bosses who flagrantly disenfranchise entire communities of white voters Why the DOJ's fixation on racial grievance threatens the integrity of the 2012 electionsIf you thought the federal government was dedicated to race-neutral equal protection, Injustice will set you straight. This searing indictment of government malfeasance unveils the astonishing political extremism and outright lawlessness that now infects on of the government's most powerful agencies. With everything from civil rights laws to America's voting system at risk, Adams sound the alarm on a gathering threat to our nation's future.

Tracker Hacker (Codename: Winger #1)

by Jeff Adams

Codename: Winger OneTheo Reese is just an average high school student with a passion for hockey and an uncanny talent when it comes to computers… at least on the surface. What his teammates, fellow students, and even his boyfriend don’t realize is that Theo leads a double life. When he’s not putting up his facade of normal, Theo is working as an agent for Tactical Operational Support, where his technical genius is more than just a hobby. At sixteen he is responsible for helping agents in the field and keeping the TOS network secure. It’s a secret he has to keep—from everyone. But secrecy becomes even harder when a hacker compromises the system TOS uses to track its agents and Theo’s dad goes missing. Theo must find him and stop the hacker, which means leaving the comfort of his computer screen and venturing into a very real and very deadly world. And if that’s not enough to deal with, all the secrecy is really putting a strain on Theo’s love life.

Letters to a Young Progressive: How to Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don?t Understand

by Mike S. Adams

Born the son of a farmer, 19-year old Ty goes off to college, fulfilling his father's dream of a better life. The only mistake was sending Ty to a liberal university. Sure enough, in his second year, Ty begins to reject his father's values-the very values of hard work and individual responsibility that provided him his education. The biggest fear of conservative parents is not experiencing the "empty nest" syndrome when their children leave for college. It is a brainwashing of their child by the pervasively liberal academic world. Author Michael Adams recounts a true story of liberal indoctrination and intellectual redemption in his new book Letters to a Young Progressive: How to Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don't Understand.Presented as a series of letters between Adams and his former student, Ty, Letters to a Young Progressive demonstrates how the world of progressive education encourages the next generation in the pursuit of unhappiness. Confused and angry, today's college students and grads have come down with a bad case of moral relativism, comparing Rush Limbaugh to Charles Manson, and George W. Bush to Hitler, and confusing fairness with justice.Witty and enlightening, Letters to a Young Progressive is the perfect book to help parents prevent-or undo--the ubiquitous, liberal brainwashing of their children before it is too late.

NO EXIT

by Taylor Adams

When a modern princess falls in love with her bodyguard, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous. Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess. Flicka von Hannover lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after. But then she found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess. And then a coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary. Finally, the beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away. The prince didn’t want to let her go. He couldn’t take his throne without her and sent henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people to look for her, too. The prince threatened her. He said that if the princess contacted her brother or any of her friends for help, he would kill her brother and her brother’s new, pregnant wife. So the princess ran to the only person she could trust, a man who was frankly not a handsome prince. Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of. No one knew that he had been her first lover and had broken her heart. And he’s the only person who can save her.

Redefining European Economic Integration (Cambridge Studies In European Law And Policy)

by Dariusz Adamski

European economic integration has relied on policies intended to make the European Union strong and resilient economically, socially and politically. The Eurozone crisis and Brexit have demonstrated, however, how fragile this hope was and how contested reforms to the major European economic policies have become.<P><P> Dariusz Adamski explains the evolution of these policies - from the Economic and Monetary Union to the internal market, international trade, the EU's climate policy, as well as its redistributive policies - and demonstrates how this evolution has made European economic integration increasingly frail. He shows how erroneous economic and political assumptions regarding the direction of the European integration project have interplayed with the EU's constitutional context. Arguing that flaws in individual policies contributing to European economic integration can be remedied in compliance with the existing constitutional setup, he explains why such solutions would be economically beneficial and politically feasible.<P> Demonstrates the relationship between national policies and the travails of European economic integration.<P> Explains which economic and political theories are useful in understanding the current state of European integration and which can serve as guidelines for reforming it.<P> Will appeal to readers with backgrounds in EU law, economics and politics alike.

The Completionist

by Siobhan Adcock

Included in Entertainment Weekly’s “10 prescient new feminist dystopias to read after The Handmaid's Tale." “Find her. You need to keep looking, no matter what. I'm afraid of what might’ve happened to her. You be afraid too.”After months of disturbing behavior, Gardner Quinn has vanished. Her older sister Fredericka is desperate to find her, but Fred is also pregnant—miraculously so, in a near-future America struggling with infertility. So she entrusts the job to their brother, Carter. Carter, young but jaded, is in need of an assignment. Just home from war, his search for his sister is a welcome distraction from mysterious physical symptoms he can’t ignore...and his slightly-more-than recreational drinking. Carter’s efforts to find Gardner lead him into a dangerous underground, where he begins to grasp the risks she took on as a Nurse Completionist. But his investigation also leads back to their father, a veteran of a decades-long war just like Carter himself, who may be concealing a painful truth, one that neither Carter nor Fredericka is ready to face. In the tradition of The Handmaid’s Tale, The Completionist is speculative fiction at its very best: imaginative and propulsive, revealing our own world in bold and unexpected ways.

The Global Middle East: Global Thought, Iranian Imaginations (The Global Middle East)

by Adib-Moghaddam Arshin

States routinely and readily exploit the grey area between sentiments of national affinity and hegemonic emotions geared to nationalist aggression. In this book, Arshin Adib-Moghaddam focuses on the use of Iranian identity to offer a timely exploration into the psychological and political roots of national identity and how these are often utilised by governments from East to West. Examining this trend, both under the Shah as well as by the governments since the 1979 Iranian revolution, Adib-Moghaddam's analysis is driven by what he terms 'psycho-nationalism', a new concept derived from psychological dynamics in the making of nations. Through this, he demonstrates how nationalist ideas evolved in global history and their impact on questions of identity, statecraft and culture. Psycho-nationalism describes how a nation is made, sustained and 'sold' to its citizenry and will interest students and scholars of Iranian culture and politics, world political history, nationalism studies and political philosophy.

Reign of Appearances: The Misery And Splendor Of The Public Sphere

by Ari Adut

The public sphere, be it the Greek agora or the New York Times op-ed page, is the realm of appearances - not citizenship. Its central event is spectacle - not dialogue. <P><P>Public dialogue, the mantra of many intellectuals and political commentators, is but a contradiction in terms. Marked by an asymmetry between the few who act and the many who watch, the public sphere can undermine liberal democracy, law, and morality. Inauthenticity, superficiality, and objectification are the very essence of the public sphere. But the public sphere also liberates us from the bondages of private life and fosters an existentially vital aesthetic experience. <P>Reign of Appearances uses a variety of cases to reveal the logic of the public sphere, including homosexuality in Victorian England, the 2008 crash, antisemitism in Europe, confidence in American presidents, communications in social media, special prosecutor investigations, the visibility of African-Americans, violence during the French Revolution, the Islamic veil, and contemporary sexual politics. <P>This unconventional account of the public sphere is critical reading for anyone who wants to understand the effects of visibility in urban life, politics, and the media.<P>Challenges the common wisdom that the public sphere is always good for democracy.<P> Asserts that spectatorship - and not civic participation - is the essence of the public sphere.<P> Argues that spectatorship, which is a much-disdained stance, is an existentially vital aesthetic experience.
