The history of slavery in early America is a history of suicide. On ships crossing the Atlantic, enslaved men and women refused to eat or leaped into the ocean. They strangled or hanged themselves. They tore open their own throats. In America, they jumped into rivers or out of windows, or even ran into burning buildings. Faced with the reality of enslavement, countless Africans chose death instead. In The Power to Die, Terri L. Snyder excavates the history of slave suicide, returning it to its central place in early American history. How did people—traders, plantation owners, and, most importantly, enslaved men and women themselves—view and understand these deaths, and how did they affect understandings of the institution of slavery then and now? Snyder draws on ships’ logs, surgeons' journals, judicial and legislative records, newspaper accounts, abolitionist propaganda and slave narratives, and many other sources to build a grim picture of slavery’s toll and detail the ways in which suicide exposed the contradictions of slavery, serving as a powerful indictment that resonated throughout the Anglo-Atlantic world and continues to speak to historians today.

Tom Lasino, army veteran and college physics professor, has his mundane life turned upside down when he is contacted by a CIA agent. Tom is recruited to become part of a top-secret mission. He receives a briefing aboard a yacht anchored off Maryland's Tilghman Island. At the briefing Tom discovers that the CIA agent is Jennifer Blake, a long ago friend with whom he had lost all contact. The CIA, Tom learns, has uncovered a terrorist nuclear plot that will be unleashed somewhere in the United States, and Kurt Hansen, a former nuclear artillery soldier turned criminal soon to be released from Leavenworth, is behind the plot. Tom, after much weapons and martial arts training in addition to intense intelligence briefings, is inserted into Leavenworth prison as a prisoner. He is to befriend Hansen, learn what he can about Hansen's plot, and connect with him again when they are released from prison in a month. In prison Tom learns how much hatred Hansen has for the United States and it's government. Upon their release Tom continues to play the role, but also begins to develop an intense relationship with Jennifer. Tom and the entire team of six use their collective wits to discover the location and details of Hansen's plot, but their discoveries come at a high cost for all the key players. The many twists and turns in Eagles Don't Die keep you guessing to the very end. This fictional story, which brings the reader face to face with the reality of terror and homeland security, is based on an incident that actually occurred in 1971 involving a nuclear military device. Today's world events make this a very timely tale. Eagles Don't Die won First Prize in the Action-Adventure Category of the 2006 Maryland Writers' Association International Novel Contest.

Caring for a terminally ill loved one can be the single biggest challenge of your life. Drawing from her experience sitting with over 500 people as they died and caring for her own terminally ill father, Dr. Lani Leary gently guides caregivers, family, and friends through the difficult transitions of illness, death, and bereavement. No One Has to Die Alone offers the practical skills, vocabulary, and insights needed to truly address the needs of a dying loved one while caring for yourself through the process. Dr. Leary shows both patient and caregiver how to rise above feelings of fear and isolation to find peace and meaning in each person’s unique end-of-life experience. Whether used as a reference book to address a particular challenge or read from start to finish, this is a must-read for anyone facing death or the loss of a loved one. You’ll learn: • how to listen to and support a loved one’s needs; • what to expect as a loved one declines and the different grieving processes and tasks; • the key to supporting a grieving child; • what resources are available for patients and caregivers; • the lessons of near-death experiences and the value of after-death communications.

One of the Washington Post's Top Nonfiction Titles of 2001 In the spring of 1942, the federal government forced West Coast Japanese Americans into detainment camps on suspicion of disloyalty. Two years later, the government demanded even more, drafting them into the same military that had been guarding them as subversives. Most of these Americans complied, but Free to Die for Their Country is the first book to tell the powerful story of those who refused. Based on years of research and personal interviews, Eric L. Muller re-creates the emotions and events that followed the arrival of those draft notices, revealing a dark and complex chapter of America's history.
