Black feminists remind us “that America’s destiny is inseparable from how it treats [black women] and the nation ignores this truth at its peril” (The New York Review of Books). Winner of the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Nonfiction “If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free.” —Combahee River Collective Statement The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles. “A striking collection that should be immediately added to the Black feminist canon.” —Bitch Media “An essential book for any feminist library.” —Library Journal “As white feminism has gained an increasing amount of coverage, there are still questions as to how black and brown women’s needs are being addressed. This book, through a collection of interviews with prominent black feminists, provides some answers.” —The Independent “For feminists of all kinds, astute scholars, or anyone with a passion for social justice, How We Get Free is an invaluable work.” —Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal

This book helps you to see how we have been conditioned and how to break Free. I believe that we act and take decisions everyday from our conditioned mind. It is like a computer program that is expected to act as per its instructions. The programmers are Parents, schools, society, traditions, religions and institutes. I will discuss how we have been conditioned from our infant years by each institution and society in general that has added layers upon layers of our conditioning. The truth is found in the core of the onion after peeling each layer step by step. We take things at face value and while we should question everything. We have been taught to accept everything we are told, to follow the classical path, go to school, study hard, go to university & specialise, get a job, work hard , get married, raise a family & retire It seems no one questions this classical path, everyone follows it blindly. I am here to show you how we have been conditioned and how to start seeing the false from the truth and be free to act smartly in every forward move you make in your precious life.

Remember that thing you just can't get over? Betrayal, tragedy, rejection—we've all experienced loss and injustice on a magnitude God never designed us for. Now that we've faced it, we're older, wiser . . . and rightly on guard against this fallen world. Or are we? Could it be that our cranky moods and critical words aren't just momentary lapses but evidence of a fatal poison creeping into our spiritual root system? Bitterness—the word no one wants to say—has taken hold. From her own experience getting free, Tracey Bickle honestly walks us through recognizing and overcoming the bitterness lurking within and its resulting chaos. Offenses will come; will they ruin us or will we emerge tender, victorious, and joyful? How should we treat those who have sinned against us, and how can we be healed from the pain of heart injuries? Join Tracey and discover the wise counsel of God to free us from the chaos of bitterness and release us into peace.

No mortal has ever sailed to the end of the world and returned to tell the tale. Legend says that the southern seas are full of monsters, lethal storms, and monstrous entities even the gods cannot conceive. Only a brave hero or a reckless fool would ever willingly venture into these deadly waters. Prince Tojas Malock travels to the southern seas in response to the summons from a goddess he has never met. To conquer these seas, Malock recruits the finest crew money can buy: An intelligent but haughty mage, an old fisherman with a mysterious past, a young female assassin, and a woman who knows far more than she lets on. With his ragtag crew of sailors behind him, Malock heads to the end of the world, ready for whatever the seas have to throw at him. But with mortal-eating gods, murderous pirates, and a traitor within the crew itself, Malock's voyage may end in tragedy.

Author: Reon Schutte
Publisher: Morgan James Publishing
Ten principles to overcome adversity from a former South African special forces soldier who survived 13 years as a prisoner of war. Reon Schutte has led a remarkable life. A South African solider captured in a cross border raid into Zimbabwe in 1990, he spent nearly thirteen years in that country’s infamously brutal Chikurubi prison. Since his pardon and release, he has presented his triumphant story of survival and transformation to one million people around the world, from business executives to students, prisoners to cancer survivors, war veterans to government leaders. Now in his highly anticipated first book—written with award-winning author, journalist and certified life coach, Maggie Kuhn Jacobus—Reon shares his epic personal life journey, holding readers spellbound with an inspiring recounting of overcoming inconceivable adversity. The keys to his resiliency are The 10 Principles: the major lessons he learned that allowed him to be free, even while imprisoned. With concrete exercises to put the Principles into practice, readers are given tools to break out of their own personal prisons of fear, hate, anger, lack of forgiveness and more, in order to experience a life of happiness and peace, regardless of circumstances. Reon’s journey demonstrates the potential for all humans to overcome adversity, while The 10 Principles illustrate the soul’s resourcefulness to use trying circumstances for transformation. “Reon has a fantastic story and message. You’ll emerge . . . enlightened, enthusiastic and empowered to take control of your destiny.” —Matt Stewart, business owner/former Global Chair, Entrepreneur’s Organization

Category: Business & Economics
The purpose of this book is to explain Free Cash Flow and how to use it to increase investor return. The author explains the differences between Free Cash Flow and GAAP earnings and lays out the disadvantages of GAAP EPS as well as the advantages of Free Cash Flow. After taking the reader step-by-step through the author's Free Cash Flow statement, the book illustrates with formulas how each of the four deployments of Free Cash Flow can enhance or diminish shareholder return. The book applies the conceptual building blocks of Free Cash Flow and investor return to an actual company: McDonald's. The reader is taken line-by-line through the author's investor return spreadsheet model: (1) three years of McDonald's historical financial statements are modeled; (2) a one-year projection of McDonald's Free Cash Flow and investor return is modeled. Five other restaurant companies are compared to McDonald's and each other using both Free Cash Flow and GAAP metrics.

Every day we seem to make and act upon all kinds of free choices - some of them trivial, and some so consequential that they may change the course of our life, or even the course of history. But are these choices really free? Or are we compelled to act the way we do by factors beyond our control? Is the feeling that we could have made different decisions just an illusion? And if our choices are not free, why should we be held morally responsible for our actions? This Very Short Introduction, written by a leading authority on the subject, looks at a range of issues surrounding this fundamental philosophical question, exploring it from the ideas of the Greek and medieval philosophers through to the thoughts of present-day thinkers. It provides a interesting and incisive introduction to this perennially fascinating subject. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

Author: Paul Butler
Publisher: The New Press
Drawing on his personal fascinating story as a prosecutor, a defendant, and an observer of the legal process, Paul Butler offers a sharp and engaging critique of our criminal justice system. He argues against discriminatory drug laws and excessive police power and shows how our policy of mass incarceration erodes communities and perpetuates crime. Controversially, he supports jury nullification—or voting “not guilty” out of principle—as a way for everyday people to take a stand against unfair laws, and he joins with the “Stop Snitching” movement, arguing that the reliance on informants leads to shoddy police work and distrust within communities. Butler offers instead a “hip hop theory of justice,” parsing the messages about crime and punishment found in urban music and culture. Butler’s argument is powerful, edgy, and incisive.

In these economically constrained times, the Bible's emphasis on freedom and love offers both relief from the burdens we carry and a radical new way to live. The release from slavery and debt that lay at the heart of Israel's cycle of Jubilee celebrations reveals that the whole of the Law and Prophets, as fulfilled by Christ, is about loving God and loving our neighbour. But in practice it's difficult not to be influenced by consumerism and individualism. How do we guard against this? How can we apply our faith in practical ways? What disciplines may we put in place to help us worship God in every area of our lives?

Author: Steven M. Duncan
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
In How Free Will Works, Steven M. Duncan provides not merely discussions of, but potential answers to two of the most vexed questions discussed by philosophers concerning free choice. First, supposing that the mind and the body are separate substances of opposed natures, how is it possible for them to interact such that an entirely non-physical immanent mental act can give rise to changes in the external world? Second, supposing that there is free will, how is it possible for our acts of volition/free choice to be neither causally determined nor merely chance/random events? This book spells out a new way of envisaging the mind/body relation and the nature of mind/body causal interaction that avoids the traditional "interaction problem." It also explains how it is possible for free choice neither to require an efficient cause nor to act as an efficient cause while nevertheless affecting the processes in the physical world through which intentional action is realized in human behavior. In the second half of the book, the theory developed in the first part of the book is applied to the difficult issues arising from the Christian doctrine of salvation: sin, grace, and redemption.

Author: Stephen Nachmanovitch
Free Play is about the inner sources of spontaneous creation. It is about where art in the widest sense comes from. It is about why we create and what we learn when we do. It is about the flow of unhindered creative energy: the joy of making art in all its varied forms. Free Play is directed toward people in any field who want to contact, honor, and strengthen their own creative powers. It integrates material from a wide variety of sources among the arts, sciences, and spiritual traditions of humanity. Filled with unusual quotes, amusing and illuminating anecdotes, and original metaphors, it reveals how inspiration arises within us, how that inspiration may be blocked, derailed or obscured by certain unavoidable facts of life, and how finally it can be liberated - how we can be liberated - to speak or sing, write or paint, dance or play, with our own authentic voice. The whole enterprise of improvisation in life and art, of recovering free play and awakening creativity, is about being true to ourselves and our visions. It brings us into direct, active contact with boundless creative energies that we may not even know we had.
