Nouwen was a Catholic Priest who taught at several theological institutes and universities in his home country of the Netherlands and in the United States. He shared the final years of his life with people with mental and physical disabilities at L'Arche Daybreak Community in Toronto, Canada. He died in 1996. He authored many books on the spiritual life including "Reaching Out", "The Wounded Healer", and "The Return of the Prodigal Son.", Image Books, 1976, NY: Doubleday, 1995 This is an ADVANCE READING COPY/UNCORRECTED PROOF, a highly collectable, early state of this wonderful novel. It is in FINE condition, in pictorial wrappers, as issued. A incresingly scarce ADVANCE READING COPY/UNCORRECTED PROOF in collector's condition. Captain James Holland is the pilot on a routine flight from Frankfurt to New York, packed with people eager to be home for Christmas. When a passenger collapses from what appears to be a heart attack, Holland is forced to request an emergency landing at London's Heathrow Airport. But to his great surprise, the air traffic controllers will not let him land in England -- they tell Holland that his sick passenger has contracted a dangerous new form of influenza and that the plane must return to Germany. But when German officials also refuse the landing, and other European countries follow suit, Holland begins to suspect that he's in much more trouble than anyone's letting on. In fact, his sick passenger is carrying a deadly virus accidentally released from a Bavarian laboratory, and it is feared that everyone on board is now infected. At the same time, someone with access to the CIA's computers wants to shoot the plane out of the sky, and there is a United States ambassador on board with powerful terrorist enemies who want to see him dead. While the panic on the ground spreads from the White House Situation Room to a small airport in the Ukrainian Republic, Captain Holland has only one concern: Where and when can he land?, Doubleday, 1995, Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, 1998.

The creation of those machines is happening now and Free Flight is the harbinger of a new age of travel. Features the stories of three groups who are inventing and building the future of all air travel. These ventures should make it possible for more people to travel in a fashion such only a a few very rich people do now: in greater comfort, without fighting their way to and from the crowded hubs, leaving from the small airport that's closes to their home or office and flying direct to the small airport closes to where they really want to go. Gives details rgarding Eclipse Aviation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which uses technologies first applied on cruise missiles to develop cheap jet planes for air taxi services that take you exactly where you want to go, when you want to go there.

The journal, or spiritual autobiography, was the characteristic literary expression of Quakerism in its first two centuries. Woolman's Journal was first published in 1774 (shortly after his death.) His life, as recorded in his Journal, was the finest flower of a unique Quaker culture, whose focus, as Howard H. Brinton has put it, was not on the literary or plastic arts but on life itself in home, meeting and community, a life which was an artistic creation as beautiful in its simplicity and proportion as was the architecture of its meeting houses. Its distinguishing marks were not dogmas but practical testimonies for equality, simplicity, and peace. These testimonies, once revolutionary in their social implications, were already becoming institutionalized as the badges of a peculiar people. In his quiet way-he must have been the quietest radical in history, John Woolman reforged them, tempered them in the stream of love, and converted them once again into instruments of social revolution. From the Introduction by Frederick B. Tolles. . Fourth Printing. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good., Corinth Books, 1969, Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A.: Thomas Nelson, 2006 Near-fine condition.

Synopsis Sick of the total BS of rampant PC? This brazen, furiously funny book is the antidote to today's poison of political correctness. With humor and chutzpah, attorney, commentator, and popular radio host Michael Smerconish takes on today's oversensitive culture with a collection of entertaining, outlandish anecdotes about PC gone wild-stories that are hilarious, horrifying, and unbelievably true. Why are sports leagues handing out trophies to losers? Why are little old grandmas hired to guard 200-pound prisoners? Why are newborn babies and old men with walkers singled out at the airport while likely terrorists are ushered through security with ease? This book shows through these absurdities that today's atmosphere of censorship and multiculturalism is paving the way for serious threats to our cultural identity and national security: "It's one thing for the forces of political correctness to muzzle our day-to-day lives here at home in the US, quite another when that same cancer metastasizes into the war on terror." We must eradicate the PC disease. Our sanity-and our very lives-depend on it. "Michael Smerconish talks the talk: If you say unpopular things, watch out! Using vivid examples of PC rubbish, Muzzled will lead you into a world that would terrify Rod Serling. An entertaining and provocative book." -Bill O'Reilly "Reads like fiction, too bad it's true." -Nelson DeMille, novelist, author of Night Fall and The General's Daughter "The PC virus is out of control . . . and it's worse than you think! In this entertaining and important book, Michael Smerconish chronicles just how mindless things have gotten in politically correct America. He tells fascinating stories that will make you laugh . . . right up until the time they make you scream. Thanks to the PC crowd, we are all living in The United States of the Absurd." -Bernard Goldberg, journalist and author of 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America, Arrogance, and Bias "I really squirm whenever I find myself agreeing with Smerconish. (I know the feeling is mutual.) I did a lot of squirming while reading this provocative book. All true liberals and conservatives must agree with Smerconish that the PC muzzles must be removed so that people can decide based on the marketplace of ideas." -Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Harvard and author of Preemption "I don't often find myself on the same side of the political barricades as Michael Smerconish. But Muzzled is a witty, provocative, and timely book. Even when Michael is wrong, which is often, he draws you in and keeps you reading." -Arianna Huffington, author of Pigs at the Trough and Fanatics and Fools "By proving the link between America's political correctness at home and its looming defeat abroad, Smerconish performs a great and courageous public service. Citizens should take this book to heart . . . and then vote to defeat the rogue multiculturalists who value 'ethnic and racial sensitivities' far more than America's survival." -Michael F. Scheuer, author of Imperial Hubris and Through Our Enemies' Eyes, former chief of the CIA's Osama bin Laden Unit "In Muzzled, my American Blood Brother of status-quo-obliterating defiance, Michael Smerconish, once again smokes out the cockroaches of political correctness . . . Muzzled is a great title for a book that I am convinced every American school kid should read and be tested on. If a new generation doesn't grow some intellectual balls, our Once Great Nation will continue to repeat horrific mistakes and pay the price . . . Read it. Live it." -Ted Nugent, rock star, author, television personality, and hunter extraordinaire. Trade Paperback. Near-Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Thomas Nelson, 2006, Covers have edge wear.A glance at a list of America's fastest growing "cities" reveals quite a surprise: most are really overgrown suburbs. Places such as Anaheim, California, Coral Springs, Florida, Naperville, Illinois, North Las Vegas, Nevada, and Plano, Texas, have swelled to big-city size with few people really noticingincluding many of their ten million residents. These "boomburbs" are large, rapidly growing, incorporated communities of more than 100,000 residents that are not the biggest city in their region. Here, Robert E. Lang and Jennifer B. LeFurgy explain who lives in them, what they look like, how they are governed, and why their rise calls into question the definition of urban.Located in over twenty-five major metro areas throughout the United States, numerous boomburbs have doubled, tripled, even quadrupled in size between census reports. Some are now more populated than traditional big cities. The population of the biggest boomburbMesa, Arizonarecently surpassed that of Minneapolis and Miami.Typically large and sprawling, boomburbs are "accidental cities," but not because they lack planning. Many are made up of master-planned communities that have grown into one another. Few anticipated becoming big cities and unintentionally arrived at their status. Although boomburbs possess elements found in cities such as housing, retailing, offices, and entertainment, they lack large downtowns. But they can contain high-profile industries and entertainment venues: the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Arizona Cardinals are among over a dozen major-league sports teams who play in the boomburbs.Urban in fact but not in feel, these drive-by cities of highways, office parks, and shopping malls are much more horizontally built and less pedestrian friendly than most older suburbs. And, contrary to common perceptions of suburbia, they are not rich and elitist. Poverty is often seen in boomburb communities of small single-family homes, neighborhoods that once represented the American dream.Boomburbs are a quintessential American landscape, embodying much of the nation's complexity, expansiveness, and ambiguity. This fascinating look at the often contradictory world of boomburbs examines why America's suburbs are thriving and how they are shaping the lives of millions of residents.212 p., Brookings Institution Press, 2007

A glance at a list of America's fastest growing cities reveals quite a surprise: most are really overgrown suburbs. Places such as North Las Vegas, NV; Plano, TX; Gilbert, AZ; and Chula Vista, CA have swelled to big-city size with few people really noticing--including many of their residents. " Boomburbs, " a term coined by the authors, are large suburbs of more than 100,000 residents that are not the biggest municipality in their metropolitan areas. In this fascinating look at the complicated and often contradictory world of boomburbs, Robert Lang and Jennifer LeFurgy address who lives in them, what drives their development, and how they are governed. The first book to examine these booming suburbs is an essential read for anyone interested in the changing face of America's metropolitan landscape. Found in over twenty-five major metro areas, boomburbs maintained rapid population growth in recent decades with many doubling, tripling, and even quadrupling in size between Census reports. With a combined population of over ten million residents, more than 180 of these super suburbs are located throughout America. Some are now more populated than their better-known, big-city peers. The largest boomburb in the nation, Mesa, AZ, recently passed St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Atlanta in population. Boomburbs are " accidental cities, " but not because they lack planning. Many are made up of master-planned communities that have run into one another. Typically large and sprawling, few anticipated becoming big cities and unintentionally arrived at their status. Although boomburbs possess elements found in cities such as housing, retailing, offices, and entertainment, they tend to lacka large downtown. Urban in fact but not in feel, these drive-by cities of highways, office parks, and shopping malls are mainly low-profile places. But they can contain high-profile industries and entertainment venues: the Los Angeles Angels and Arizona Cardinals are among over a dozen major-league sports teams who play in the boomburbs. Interesting, informative, and accessible, Boomburbs explains why Americas suburbs are thriving and how they are shaping the lives of millions of residents.
