Concerned Citizens of Montauk was formed in 1970 as an organized response to block plans by developers to build 1,400 houses near Big Reed Pond. As a direct result, Theodore Roosevelt County Park was created. Building on successes such as this first one, CCM evolved to become one of the most effective citizens' groups on the East End over the next 35 years, working to preserve the unique and fragile environment and ecology of Montauk. Today it boasts a membership of over 800 residents. In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the organization, this book tells the story of Concerned Citizens of Montauk, its evolution, history, and struggles to preserve the natural beauty of the town on the very east end of the East End.

Claire Vincent is a misunderstood and confused girl who has no friends her own age. The kids at school think she's weird, and she'd rather be left alone than have to deal with their rude stares and hurtful comments. Her only friend is her bold and adventurous grandmother Millie, who's traveled the world and done everything from going on safaris to flying planes. Claire wants to be just like her, but that's much harder for her than anyone realizes. She's not courageous enough to even try - and so she remains a loner, burying her nose in books and escaping into the imaginative magical worlds she reads about. But when a new kid, Matt, moves next door, she finds herself slowly drawn into the world of the living, despite her misgivings. Matt would do anything to please her, and she finds herself depending on him for everything - friends, social life, and recognition. But it's a dependence she eventually grows to despise because it just makes her own weakness that much more apparent. She yearns for more - real magic in her life, to sweep her away from the land of the boring. When Claire's father decides to throw her grandmother a surprise seventy-fifth birthday party despite her grandmother's vehement aversion to celebrating birthdays, Claire finds out that a magical life might not be as desirable as she naively believed. An unexpected guest at her grandmother's party - Jack, a handsome boy new to town - seems to know Gran very well. Claire soon discovers her grandmother has been keeping a very big secret - and that secret might just be the perennially mysterious Jack.

“Don’t be afraid. Just give me your everything.” When Jesus told us to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, strength (Mark 12:30), did he mean it one way for men and another way for women? Through heartfelt biblical teaching, Kat Armstrong challenges the way our church culture has limited the terms of Jesus’ command to the perceived strengths of each gender. She dares to ask and explore what faith and life in general would look like if we broke through the barriers holding us back and lived giving Jesus our ALL. In this six-session video Bible study, Kat offers a fresh perspective of encouragement that aligns with Scripture from beginning to end: “Don’t be afraid. Give me your everything.” She urges women to wholeheartedly love the lord beyond our heart and soul, as well as with our mind and strength. If you have ever felt challenged or insecure following your dreams, or in your career, or in your personal pursuit of God, this is your study. Dare to answer his invitation to show up daily, holding nothing back. Designed specifically for busy women with limited time, the No More Holding Back Study Guide includes Scripture reading, video notes, and group discussion questions with simple, short-but-focused personal study and Bible exploration materials for in-between sessions. Sessions include: Why Are You Even Here? Stay in Your Place All Your Heart All Your Soul All Your Mind All Your Strength Designed for use with No More Holding Back Video Study (9780310098980), sold separately.

HOLDING ONTO NOTHING is Gordon Bishop's first book, begun when he was 19 at the Iroquois Hotel in Manhattan and completed when he was 20 and working as a copywriter for a catalog house in Passaic, New Jersey. In 1959, Mr. Bishop walked into THE HERALD-NEWS, Passaic, and got a job as a reporter. Soon after, he was writing his own general-interest column and winning awards: The New Jersey Press Association's Award for "Best Column" in 1965 and the NJPA's Award for "Best Reporting Against Deadlilne" in 1966. A graduate of Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, Mr. Bishop, as a student, became a good friend of his teacher, Paterson Poet Louis Ginsberg, father of the famous avant-garde poet Allen Ginsberg. As a result of their decade-long friendship, Mr. Bishop wrote two books on the Ginsbergs, the first a collection of essays (with pictures) entitled THE FIVE WORLDS OF ALLEN GINSBERG, and a biography, THE GINSBERGS: A FAMILY OF POETS, both of which are scheduled for publication later this year. Mr. Bishop also co-authored a three-act play, THE PURPLE CANARY, dealing with corruption in public school systems and which was presented at the off-Broadway Midway Theater in Manhattan in 1963.

Derrida on Exile and the Nation

Providing crucial scholarship on Derrida's first series of lectures from the Nationality and Philosophical Nationalism cycle, Herman Rapaport brings all 13 parts of the Fantom of the Other series (1984-85) to our critical attention. The series, Rapaport argues, was seminal in laying the foundations for the courses given, and ideas explored, by Derrida over the next twenty years. It is in this vein that the full explication of Derrida's lectures is done, breathing life into the foundational lecture series which has not yet been published in its entirety in English. Derrida's examination of a master signifier of the social relation, Geschlecht, acts as the critical entry point of the series into wide-ranging meditations on the social construction and deconstruction of all possible relations denoted by the core concept, including race, gender, sex, and family. The lecture series' vast engagement with a range of major thinkers, including philosophers and poets alike – Arendt, Adorno, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Trakl, and Adonis – tackles core themes and debates about philosophical nationalism. Presenting Derrida's lectures on the implications of key 20th century philosopher's understandings of nationalism as they relate to concerns over idiomatic language, notions of race, exile, return, and social relations, adds richly to the literature on Derrida and reveals the potential for further application of his work to current polarising debates between universalism and tribalism.

She wants him to be her first. He’s willing to help her out. Only now he can’t stop wanting more. The answer has to be no, of course. No way Griff Ambrose is going to help Becca Drake lose her virginity. Sure, she’s beautiful and hot as hell, but she’s his friend’s little sister. And Griff won’t ever risk being hurt again the way he was the day he came home from war to find his house empty and his wife gone. But he can’t get Becca’s request—or pretty much anything else about her—out of his head. Becca has turned her life around, and she’s proud of how much butt she’s kicking. There’s just one more demon she has to exorcise: her virginity. Griff is the perfect candidate to do the deed: He’s her friend, he knows how to get her going with a glance, and neither of them wants anything serious. Until Becca takes a job at the veterans’ retreat where Griff works. Now she and Griff can’t stay out of each other’s way. Worst of all, it’s getting harder and harder for Becca and Griff to lie to themselves about what they really want... “I loved this book. A friends-to-friends-with-benefits-to-lovers romance that is fun, sweet and heartfelt with fantastic characters and a sexy and emotional love story, I was completely hooked!” —Escapist Book Blog “Wow.
