Trent Malloy Had A Secret That Kept Him Drifting From Place To Place Until the night he found himself caught in a blinding snowstorm, and wound up half-frozen to death at Anna Caldwell's ranch. The gentle widow and her children had taken him in and nursed him back to health. But they'd done more than that. He'd begun to dream again about things he'd given up long ago.

A celebration of the extraordinary courage, dedication, and sacrifice of this generation of American veterans on the battlefield and their equally valuable contributions on the home front. Because so few of us now serve in the military, our men and women in uniform have become strangers to us. We stand up at athletic events to honor them, but we hardly know their true measure. Here, Starbucks CEO and longtime veterans' advocate Howard Schultz and National Book Award finalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran of The Washington Post offer an enlightening, inspiring corrective. The authors honor acts of uncommon valor in Iraq and Afghanistan, including an Army sergeant who repeatedly runs through a storm of gunfire to save the lives of his wounded comrades; two Marines who sacrifice their lives to halt an oncoming truck bomb and protect thirty-three of their brothers in arms; a sixty-year-old doctor who joins the Navy to honor his fallen son. We also see how veterans make vital contributions once they return home, drawing on their leadership skills and commitment to service: former soldiers who aid residents in rebuilding after natural disasters; a former infantry officer who trades in a Pentagon job to teach in an inner-city neighborhood; a retired general leading efforts to improve treatments for brain-injured troops; the spouse of a severely injured soldier assisting families in similar positions. These powerful, unforgettable stories demonstrate just how indebted we are to those who protect us and what they have to offer our nation when their military service is done.From the Hardcover edition.

Stein (Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, New York University) employs psychoanalytic theory to explain suicidal terrorism, arguing that Islamic extremists perform destructive and self-destructive actions in order to merge with God. Rather than being motivated by hatred or political gain, the author suggests that extremists are driven by love of God, killing His enemies to express their total submission to the deity. Stein goes on to show that this pattern of submission and sacrifice is not unique to Islam (or to Islamic extremists), but is present in other forms of patriarchal monotheism. This important book should will appeal to any reader who wants to understand the motivations of the 9/11 attackers (as well those of any other religious terrorists).

Theirs is the compression of the lyric epigram, taut, hard, constrained, graven upon the page." -Dudley Fitts, Saturday Review
