. Got hooked on Monfredo who is a local author and had to buy everything I could get my hands on written by her. Drawing on neuroscientific research and many case reports, Susan Cain explains the advantages and potentials of introversion and of being quiet in a noisy world. These are broken down into categories, like Breakfast Bites, Chocolate, Glaze, Fruits & Veggie, and so on & on . Alara Unbroken is a fun read, filled with colorful landscapes, entertaining characters, and a plot that gradually builds up to the book's climactic end. Vance is a very eccentric character and some familiarity with his background will help any reader learn to put up with some of his (slightly) annoying mannerisms. This is really more of a history of colonial Virginia and the British colonies which became the United States, I guess to set the stage for Washington's early life which it barely covers. It didn’t make a lot of sense that a technologically advanced society that scanned Legion recruits wouldn’t have checked gender. ISBN-10 1783271949 Pdf

Obviously the author is one such expert, and one thing you'll appreciate in reading is that he has not used this book as a means to sell his own consulting (a rarity in the business and quality world). Abner Landrum became his owner.

the values of Monarchism (or Republicanism), and the superiority of the English culture and its language. In particular, the subject of disinterment (exhumation) attracted the attention of antiquaries. They constructed a comprehensive memory of the past by 'reading' corpses as documents describing an idealised past. These 'texts' accompanied and enhanced the traditional texts of chronicle, literature, and epitaph. This study explores the cooperation of ideology and aesthetic, the paradox of allure and revulsion, and the uncanny attraction to death. In each case there is a desire for the dead to speak in a contemporary voice; each historical personage becomes symbolic of larger aspects of the contemporary culture. The discourse of the noble body in death is reconfigured to validate English nationalist ideals and to establish the past as a Golden Era of unimpeachable superiority. It was not enough simply to study the lives and deaths of historical figures. It was necessary to disinter the corpses, engage physically with the dead, and experience the discourse of validation.
