Where should we go? All that we knew is gone, and all that we have is each other… In this short story from the thrilling anthology MatchUp, bestselling authors Diana Gabaldon and Steve Berry—along with their popular series characters Jamie Fraser and Cotton Malone—team up for the first time ever.
Canada's centennial anniversary in 1967 coincided with a period of transformative public policymaking. This period saw the establishment of the modern welfare state, as well as significant growth in the area of cultural diversity, including multiculturalism and bilingualism. Meanwhile, the rising commitment to the protection of individual and collective rights was captured in the project of a "just society." Tracing the past, present, and future of Canadian policymaking, Policy Transformation in Canada examines the country's current and most critical challenges: the renewal of the federation, managing diversity, Canada's relations with Indigenous peoples, the environment, intergenerational equity, global economic integration, and Canada's role in the world. Scrutinizing various public policy issues through the prism of Canada's sesquicentennial, the contributors consider the transformation of policy and present an accessible portrait of how the Canadian view of policymaking has been reshaped, and where it may be heading in the next fifty years.
Sometimes the game of future's past is played by bending the rules. But the citizens of the city of Atlanta have broken them all. Thomas Pepper draws close...dangerously close to discovering the answers to the three questions that every Person of Color in America wants to know: Who killed the first Black president of the United States? Who is the Caretaker? And what is the Whirlwind? Special Agent Christopher Prince and his childhood friend Dr. Angel Hicks Dupree learn that their lies and worse...all of their truths have come back to potentially destroy them both. And while one player tragically exits the game forever, another experiences a rebirth that you will have to see to believe.
In the final part of the trilogy, we find that space and time have been altered by the Janus Gate. Members of the crew of the Enterprise have been thrown backward and forward through time, altering history, and then returning to the present many years older or younger. Mr Spock and Chief Engineer Scott have managed to avoid the effects of the Janus Gate and are trying desperately to reorganise the crew and to find a way to pass them through the gate to restore them to their proper ages. This task is made even more difficult when they realise that they must re-adjust history to ensure not only that everyone still exists in the present, but also that the Federation itself has a future. Captain James T. Kirk, meanwhile, remains trapped in his own past. As a boy, he barely survived a brutal massacre on Tarsus IV - an event which resonates through twenty-third century history. Can he stand by now and watch those same events unfold again? The traumatic memories of Enterprise crewmember Lt Kevin Riley -- a fellow survivor of Tarsus IV -- may be Spock's best hope to locate the captain before time runs out for them all.
In today's military of rapid technological and strategic change, obtaining a complete understanding of the present, let alone the past, is a formidable challenge. Yet the very high rate of change today makes study of the past more important than ever before. The Past as Prologue, first published in 2006, explores the usefulness of the study of history for contemporary military strategists. It illustrates the great importance of military history while simultaneously revealing the challenges of applying the past to the present. Essays from authors of diverse backgrounds - British and American, civilian and military - come together to present an overwhelming argument for the necessity of the study of the past by today's military leaders in spite of these challenges. The essays of Part I examine the relationship between history and the military profession. Those in Part II explore specific historical cases that show the repetitiveness of certain military problems.
In his latest book, Ernest Lefever, well-known conservative, theologian, and policy practitioner, argues passionately that America must, as we approach the new millennium, accept its imperial burden--a responsibility commensurate with its capacity to influence the outside world--to carry out the ideals of the country's founders and contemporary philosophers.
