The Last Plague in the Baltic Region, 1709-1713 offers a thorough description and analysis of the terrible plague epidemic that ravaged the Baltic region in the years between 1709 and 1713 ? at the same time when the region was razed by the Great Northern War (1700-?21). Sweden under Carolus XII had lost its supremacy, and Russia under Peter the Great emerged as the new major power in the region. With the marching armies came the plague and its effects, which were particularly devastating, since it hit a population already weakened by famines and desolation caused by the war. Drawing on substantial documentation in city and state archives, the study addresses a range of important discussions touching on the far-reaching consequences of the plague across the region: including mortality rates, symptoms of the disease, treatments, how the disease spread, why some parishes, villages, houses and families were particularly hard hit, the measures taken by the authorities to confine the epidemic and the reactions of people to these measures. Offering detailed information of the plague's demographic and economic consequences, as well as tragic accounts of its victims, this volume constitutes a fascinating synthesis and assessment of a devastating chapter in the region's history.

The 'Spanish' influenza of 1918 was the deadliest pandemic in history, killing as many as 50 million people worldwide. Canadian federal public health officials tried to prevent the disease from entering the country by implementing a maritime quarantine, as had been their standard practice since the cholera epidemics of 1832. But the 1918 flu was a different type of disease. In spite of the best efforts of both federal and local officials, up to fifty thousand Canadians died. In The Last Plague, Mark Osborne Humphries examines how federal epidemic disease management strategies developed before the First World War, arguing that the deadliest epidemic in Canadian history ultimately challenged traditional ideas about disease and public health governance. Using federal, provincial, and municipal archival sources, newspapers, and newly discovered military records – as well as original epidemiological studies – Humphries' sweeping national study situates the flu within a larger social, political, and military context for the first time. His provocative conclusion is that the 1918 flu crisis had important long-term consequences at the national level, ushering in the 'modern' era of public health in Canada.

After adopting their son, Marc and Gillian Thayer intend on enjoying a relaxing weekend away at a picturesque resort in northern Michigan. That is, until their friend turns up dead and the resort becomes a grisly murder scene. A killer, seeking revenge, begins reenacting the ten plagues of Egypt on the resort and everyone in it, including a Bible translation team already drawing angry protests for proposing to merge the Bible with corresponding passages from the Qur’an. Water turns to blood. Gnats attack the innocent. As plague after plague appears, the Thayers must make sense of how their story intersects with those of the others at the resort—and of their own dark pasts. In this “chilling tale that keeps readers turning pages and pondering its truths” (C. J. Darlington), the Thayers must unravel the truth. But will they uncover the killer’s bitter agenda before the tenth plague—the death of the firstborn son? Praise for The Tenth Plague: “Suspense of biblical proportions! Adam Blumer does a masterful job transforming the biblical plagues to a modern-day scenario full of twists and turns that will keep you riveted until the very end.”—Bonnie S. Calhoun, publisher of Christian Fiction Online Magazine and author of Cooking the Books: A Sloane Templeton Mystery “A chilling tale that keeps readers turning pages and pondering its truths. The Tenth Plague is a solid entry in Adam Blumer’s bibliography, and fans of thrillers with spiritual depth will find much to enjoy.”—C. J. Darlington, author of Thicker than Blood and Bound by Guilt “Adam Blumer writes a suspenseful story with a passion for God not often seen in today’s marketplace.”—Creston Mapes, best-selling author of Nobody, Dark Star, and Full Tilt “The Tenth Plague delivers a compelling premise of a Bible/Qur’an hybrid sparking controversy and murder that will thrill readers of clean Christian fiction!”—Bryn Jones, author of The Next Chapter “An intriguing premise with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Blumer’s crafted a great thriller in The Tenth Plague.”—Graham Garrison, author of Hero’s Tribute and Legacy Road “Adam Blumer’s The Tenth Plague sweeps an ordinary couple into a current of extraordinary events—all with a mentally deranged man calling the shots. Here’s a novel that will keep you wondering what can possibly go wrong next!”—Rick Barry, author of Gunner’s Run “An almost-forgotten mine disaster, a misguided conference on Bible translation, a twisted take on the book of Revelation, a botched ATF-FBI operation, a gifted autistic child—Adam Blumer has woven these strands and more into a page-turning tapestry of a mystery. You won’t want to lay this one aside till the author has tied up all the loose ends.”—Richard C. Leonard, author of Heart of the Highriders and Silence of the Drums

Proves why classroom sex education is always wrong and always harmful; that it destroys modesty; awakens the passions; promotes sexual activity and fosters acceptance of sexual sins. Shows where it comes from; who promotes it; that it is all-pervasive. Gives the Church's position; that sex education is the right and duty of parents only; which may be delegated to others; but never usurped! A must for parents; teachers and priests.
