After the 1872 publication of Exposé, Fanny Stenhouse became a celebrity in the cultural wars between Mormons and much of America. An English convert, she had grown disillusioned with the Mormon Church and polygamy, which her husband practiced before associating with a circle of dissident Utah intellectuals and merchants. Stenhouse's critique of plural marriage, Brigham Young, and Mormonism was also a sympathetic look at Utah's people and honest recounting of her life. She later created a new edition, titled "Tell It All," which ensured her notoriety in Utah and popularity elsewhere but turned her thoughtful memoir into a more polemical, true exposé of Polygamy. Since 1874, it has stayed in print, in multiple, varying editions. The original book, meanwhile, is less known, though more readable. Tracing the literary history of Stenhouse's important piece of Americana, Linda DeSimone rescues an important autobiographical and historical record from the baggage notoriety brought to it.

On June 9, 2008, the butchered body of Travis Alexander was found in his Mesa, Arizona home. The grisly nature of his death made instant headlines: with twenty-nine knife wounds, his throat slit, and a gunshot to the head, Travis was left to die. The prime suspect in the case was Alexander's ex-girlfriend, the attractive and soft-spoken Jodi Arias. Though Arias initially said that she was nowhere near the scene of crime, little about this case was as it seemed, and before long she had been caught lying to police. As the investigation progressed, her lies evolved multiple times before finally resting on an appalling claim: she had killed Travis in self-defense. Along the way, startling details emerged about the Mormon couple's relationship, and soon graphic stories of their lurid sexual encounters and jealousy-driven blowouts revealed a dark side to their life together. These revelations launched a trial filled with sex and deception but also raised substantial questions about Arias's deceit, as people from across the country struggled to understand the bizarre world of Jodi Arias. Now, award-winning broadcast journalist and bestselling author Jane Velez-Mitchell, a veteran of some of the most storied court cases in recent memory, goes behind the scenes of the trial and into the mind of a killer. Using insider accounts from friends who knew Travis and Jodi, Velez-Mitchell turns her sharply-focused lens on Arias and offers her seasoned perspective on the case's most pressing questions. Separating fact from fiction, she reports on the bizarre and explicit stories that have both shocked and fascinated the American public--from Jodi's romantic history before meeting Travis, to their torrid sex life together, to the complicated role their Mormon faith played in the relationship's demise. With unbridled access to the evidence and the case's key players, Velez-Mitchell unearths Jodi's contentious life with those closest to her, examining the paranoid and erratic behavior behind each relationship and illustrating the disturbing pattern of a murderer in the making. Complete with photos from the case and Jane Velez-Mitchell's fresh insights on the crime, Exposed takes readers behind closed bedroom doors to uncover the truth behind the secret and sordid life of Jodi Arias.

The perfect conservative contrast to the upcoming movie about Che. Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the mainstream media celebrate Ernesto ?Che? Guevara as a saint, a sex symbol, and a selfless martyr. But their ideas about Che ? whose face adorns countless T-shirts and posters ? are based on the lies of Fidel Castro?s murderous dictatorship. Che?s hipster fans are classic ?useful idiots,? the name Stalin gave to foolish Westerners who parroted his lies about communism. And their numbers will only increase after a new biopic is released this fall, starring Benicio Del Toro. But as Humberto Fontova reveals in this myth-shattering book, Che was actually a bloodthirsty executioner, a military bumbler, a coward, and a hypocrite.

How he persecuted gays, blacks, and religious people. ? How he loved material wealth and private luxuries, despite his image as an ascetic. Are Che fans like Angelina Jolie, Jesse Jackson, Carlos Santana, and Johnny Depp too ignorant to realize they?ve been duped? Or too anti-American to care? .

Exposition of the first part of the Gospel of John.
If the best way to understand the Christian Faith is to read the Gospels, then the next books in order of importance have to be those which aid in the understanding of those Gospels. Observing this need in his own parish, J. C. Ryle prepared his Expository Thoughts on the Gospels which have encircled the earth for more than a century with undiminished popularity and usefulness. Ryle's 'plain and pointed' words are a great stimulus to the reading of the Bible itself. While his chief aim is to help the reader to know Christ he also has another object in view. He writes so that his commentary on Mark can be read aloud to a group. Unlike many authors he is equally good, read or heard. There are many other fuller Commentaries on the Gospels, but no others make such compelling listening - whether it be in the family, in neighbourly groups, or over the air - as those of J. C. Ryle.

The Perseus is at the heart of thousands of commercial and military systems, including the PaloVerde nuclear plant, site of a massive nuclear meltdown that killed tens of thousands and left millions a future filled with radiation illness and cancer. Billionaire Preston Sinclaire, chairman of Microtel Corporation, the manufacturer of the Perseus, is at the pinnacle of his power, about to be elected President of the United States. No one knows that the Perseus caused the meltdown. No one, that is, except Pamela Sasser. Harrison Beckett is a professional assassin, contracted to eliminate Sasser. A former defense intelligence agency operative, Beckett has eliminated dozens of targets. But he is not a cold - blooded killer; he is a man with a moral code who has only killed those who clearly deserve to die. He has been told that Sasser is a traitor to the United States, a purveyor of computer secrets essential to our national security. But Beckett does not know that he has become the pawn of a shadowy organization known only as the Web -- founded during the Vietnam war by an enterprising black - marketer named Preston Sinclaire -- with tentacles that reach to the very highest levels of the Pentagon, the source of Beckett's contract. While Beckett draws closer to killing Sasser, who has only begun to suspect the danger that she is in, sudden twist and turns show truths to be lies and reality to be far from what he believes. And, all the while, bugs in the Perseus continues to surface, costing the lives of more and more Americans. It is only a matter of time until another disaster occurs in one of the half dozen other nuclear reactors equipped with the chip. When this becomes clear to Beckett, the knowledge becomes his death warrant, and the hunter suddenly finds himself the hunted. As Sinclaire and the Web close in, Sasser and Beckett find themselves unlikely allies -- and far more. And only they can prevent a murderer from becoming President of the United States and save the lives of millions of Americans.
