E-BOOK EXCERPT

Growing up in a Chicago ghetto, seventeen-year-old Donald “Don-Don” Haskill has nothing but time on his hands–time he rarely spends in school, choosing instead to smoke weed and hang out with friends. As a child, he witnessed his father’s suicide, and today Don-Don’s relationship with his mother, a worn-down cop trying to keep the family together is tenuous at best. Then Don-Don meets a girl with a taste for crack–and his delinquent life turns violently criminal. Consumed with chasing his next hit, alienating even his best friends, Don-Don works the streets like a pro. In pursuit of the demon, no deal is too shady. But when a huge drug transaction goes terribly awry, a bloody chain of events is set off, as Don-Don becomes a moving target, not just for the Chicago police force but for the ghetto’s most hardened thugs. . . . From the Trade Paperback edition.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Brash and apathetic to a fault, Detective Bobby Forsett retreats from a crumbling personal and professional world he fashioned around twenty-six years of dedicated police service. Seeking solace and personal redemption he finds himself pulled back by fading sentiments he’s trying to deny and vengeful forces intent on reminding him why he never should have left. Set amid the pristine forests and mountain grandeur that surround the gem of the Pacific Northwest’s urban coastal region, Vancouver Canada, the story offers glimpses into noble souls whose deeds are anything but, and callous tormentors whose intentions are all that and more. Bobby relentlessly pursues justice to the literal precipice rediscovering a commitment to past ideals and frayed emotional ties he’d considered relics of a past best forgotten.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

During the 1990s, the Eastern Caribbean was caught in a bitter trade dispute between the US and EU over the European banana market. When the World Trade Organization rejected preferential access for Caribbean growers in 1998 the effect on the region's rural communities was devastating. This volume examines the "banana wars" from the vantage point of St. Lucia's Mabouya Valley, whose recent, turbulent history reveals the impact of global forces. The author investigates how the contemporary structure of the island's banana industry originated in colonial policies to create a politically "stable" peasantry, followed by politicians' efforts to mobilize rural voters. These political strategies left farmers dependent on institutional and market protection, leaving them vulnerable to any alteration in trade policy. This history gave way to a new harsh reality, in which neoliberal policies privilege price and quantity over human rights and the environment. However, against these challenges, the author shows how the rural poor have responded in creative ways, including new social movements and Fair Trade farming, in order to negotiate a stronger position for themselves in the in a shifting global economy.
