Snake Charmer Sometimes it takes finding an opposite to show us the beauty within ourselves. When security consultant and ex-mercenary, Gabrielo 'Snake' Barbas, thwarts an attack of one of his co-workers, Riley Banks, he takes it upon himself to keep the smaller man safe. His job is made harder when he discovers the attacker is actually Riley's ex-boyfriend, a ruthless man from a very wealthy and powerful family. After a night of passion, Snake decides to take Riley far away from Richmond, Virginia to a town in Wyoming for the annual Cattle Valley Days celebration. He should have known that sex with Riley wouldn't be enough, but he feels he has nothing else to give such a nice guy. Riley is the sexiest man Snake's ever taken to his bed despite Riley's claim otherwise. Riley knows he's average-looking at best, so why does Snake continue to flatter him? It's obvious he's not going to kick Snake out of bed, even after Snake informs him that sex is all he has to give. Why does Snake see him so differently than the rest of the world? While Riley is busy trying to figure out the man who touches him like no other has before, Snake is busy trying to protect him from a monster in a business suit. Journey to Lobster Cover Spreading acceptance one town at a time. When the town of Cattle Valley runs out of room for new construction, Asa Montgomery begins to look into alternative locations. He discovers a picturesque fishing village in Maine for sale and begins to make plans to purchase Lobster Cove. Unfortunately, setting up a new community takes him away from his partner, Mario, who isn't pleased about being left behind. Meanwhile, after years of dancing around their mutual attraction, Cullen Bryant decides the time has come to lay his feelings for Joseph Allenbrand on the line. Unfortunately, his plan is cut short when Joseph sends him away with no other explanation than he should move on. Joseph knows sending Cullen away is the kindest thing to do for the younger man, but when he hears Cullen truly may be moving on, he realizes it's time to reevaluate his life. Will he work out his issues in time to save what he's spent years denying?

DOMINATION - the second title in the LEATHER MASTERS and slaves series, continues the tale of Tarquin Charlton and Paul Everest. In fact, this book starts exactly from where the first novel ended. As before, the story is told by our two main characters, in alternating chapters. SUBMISSION - the first title in the LEATHER MASTERS and slaves series is set primarily in the Los Angeles area of Southern California. It laid out a journey of sexual discovery for two men whose lives became increasingly intertwined. Tarquin Charlton's sexual training began at Yale where he learned to become a Dominant. Moving to Los Angeles as an entertainment lawyer, he started training and owning his own slaves. He was accepted into The Circle of Six, a powerful but discreet group of Leather Masters who helped one another professionally and sexually. Paul Everest arrived in Los Angeles as an almost innocent student, who stumbled through several submissive relationships, until he was 'taken up' by Tarquin. The relationship that developed was strict, powerful, and binding. Paul found himself in love with his Master. Real problems arose when Tarquin's own human feelings were seriously aroused. According to his rulebook, Masters did not fall in love with their slaves. Their relationship fractured violently, causing Paul to strike out on his own, eventually to assert himself as a Dom. Two years have passed. The two men meet again by chance and must decide what they truly mean to one another.

As Trade Union membership has declined, union mergers have been prominent features in strategies of revitalization. Yet, there is very little systematic and empirical research into the effects of union mergers on the unions actually merging or of their impact on the wider union movement. This ground-breaking study fills this gap with its in-depth analysis of British unions' mergers since 1978: the point at which British unions moved from growth into decline, primarily due to adverse and damaging changes in the British industrial relations climate. Initially the book describes the merger processes (transfers and amalgamations) and the extent of British unions' merger activities. This is placed in context by an examination of the generally hostile environment in which such mergers were sought and concluded. The different non-merger strategies adopted by unions to mitigate their membership loss and reduced political status are also assessed. In the body of the text the focus is on: the factors shaping unions' merger searches; the consequent merger negotiations; and the merged unions' subsequent performance. Because of the distinctly different opportunities for reform offered by transfers, as against amalgamations, the book examines each, in turn, in Parts 2 and 3. The interpretative framework adopted for analysing transfers and amalgamations addresses the following elements of unions' interests: members' job territories; political objectives and means; democratic ethos and government; administration (including finance); and leaders' imperatives. Drawing on a wealth of material gathered over the past 20 years via surveys, interviews and action research the different purposes and performances of the merged unions are critically assessed. It is concluded that transfers served to generate a limited range of improvements, generally of advantage to the minor partner union. In contrast, amalgamations are found to have the potential to transform many aspects of union organisation. However, in practice, they also tended to generate a number of unintended and unwelcome consequences. In conclusion mergers' contributions to the revitalization of the wider British trade union movement are also discussed. This authoritative study of British unions' merger strategies is essential reading for all those interested in the future of trade unions and the potential mergers offer for generating significant reforms. Academics and students in employee relations, industrial relations, HRM and labour history should also find it useful for increasing their understanding of how unions have responded to changes in the economic and political context. Policy makers and union practitioners should also gain insights into the kinds of problems associated with unions'structural reforms.

Institutions pervade social life. They express community goals and values by defining the limits of socially acceptable behavior. Institutions are often vested with the resources, authority, and power to enforce the orthodoxy of their time. But institutions are also arenas in which both orthodoxies and authority can be contested. Between power and opposition lies the individual experience of the institutionalized. Whether in a boarding school, hospital, prison, almshouse, commune, or asylum, their experiences can reflect the positive impact of an institution or its greatest failings. This interplay of orthodoxy, authority, opposition, and individual experience are all expressed in the materiality of institutions and are eminently subject to archaeological investigation. A few archaeological and historical publications, in widely scattered venues, have examined individual institutional sites. Each work focused on the development of a specific establishment within its narrowly defined historical context; e.g., a fort and its role in a particular war, a schoolhouse viewed in terms of the educational history of its region, an asylum or prison seen as an expression of the prevailing attitudes toward the mentally ill and sociopaths. In contrast, this volume brings together twelve contributors whose research on a broad range of social institutions taken in tandem now illuminates the experience of these institutions. Rather than a culmination of research on institutions, it is a landmark work that will instigate vigorous and wide-ranging discussions on institutions in Western life, and the power of material culture to both enforce and negate cultural norms.

Through perseverance and talent, DeGeneres built a new career for herself as the host of an Academy Award-winning syndicated daytime television show. "Ellen DeGeneres" tells her story, from her childhood in Louisiana and Texas to her rise as one of the most recognizable faces on television.

Perez McCluskey explores the application of traditional strain theory across multiple ethnic groups. Using data from the Denver Youth Survey and the Rochester Youth Development Study she tests strain theory across two separate Latino groups and their white and African American counterparts. For the most part, strain theory is supported when males are examined collectively. However, when ethnic groups are examined individually, differences emerge. Strain theory does not explain Latino delinquency as well as it does that of other groups. One notable difference is the influence of delinquent friends: Latino attitudes and delinquent behavior are least affected by peers

This slice of 17th and 18th century western history is a saga of love, savage violence, and betrayal that reads like fiction. While it is centered on a famous Roman Catholic order, its international and religious scope makes it of interest to armchair historians of all beliefs including Protestants, Jews, agnostics and secular humanists. In colonial South America the Jesuits established missions among the Guaraní. As the Portuguese and Spanish slavers descended on Paraguay, the Jesuits sought to protect these stone-age Indians in their missions. Their resistance to the colonists' attacks contributed to the political problems of the church with Catholic monarchs back in Europe. As a consequence, the monarchs pressured a frightened pope to abolish the Jesuit order.In the long, tortured history of European colonization of the Americas, these Jesuit “Black Robes” in Paraguay stood out as a breed apart, even from their fellow Jesuits elsewhere. Leaders of the anti-Catholic, anti-Jesuit Enlightenment such as Voltaire and Raynal rallied to the side of these extraordinary Paraguay missionaries. Raynal wrote that never has so much good been done for mankind with so little evil.Ironically, the “heretic” monarchs of Russia and Prussia invited hundreds of the former Jesuits to run their colleges. In doing so, they inadvertently saved these outcasts to become the nucleus around which a reinvigorated papacy would re-establish the Jesuit order forty years after its abolition.

‘Lyle Canvey, metallurgy, Arthur Stranack, mechanics, Rupert Eddis, chemistry, detested one another. This deep dislike was temperamental, admitted by each to be unjustified. They had not even the excuse of jealousy—each was proud of the others’ achievements.’ Three scientists who share a lock-keeper’s house are all suspects in a murder. They work and live together yet they detest one another, but all detest their employer. It proves difficult to ascertain who is telling the truth and who is not. The police hear the same story from each man, but surely only one must be guilty of the murder, one must be aiding and abetting, and one must be innocent.
