Author: Haggai Ram
Publisher: Stanford University Press
When European powers carved political borders across the Middle East following World War I, a curious event in the international drug trade occurred: Palestine became the most important hashish waystation in the region and a thriving market for consumption. British and French colonial authorities utterly failed to control the illicit trade, raising questions about the legitimacy of their mandatory regimes. The creation of the Israeli state, too, had little effect to curb illicit trade. By the 1960s, drug trade had become a major point of contention in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and drug use widespread. Intoxicating Zion is the first book to tell the story of hashish in Mandatory Palestine and Israel. Trafficking, use, and regulation; race, gender, and class; colonialism and nation-building all weave together in Haggai Ram's social history of the drug from the 1920s to the aftermath of the 1967 War. The hashish trade encompassed smugglers, international gangs, residents, law enforcers, and political actors, and Ram traces these flows through the interconnected realms of cross-border politics, economics, and culture. Hashish use was and is a marker of belonging and difference, and its history offers readers a unique glimpse into how the modern Middle East was made.

Martin Buber's writings on Zion and Zionism go back to the early years of this century. To him, Zion was not primarily a political issue. Zionism implies a reorientation of the entire being, an overcoming of a Diaspora mentality, a catharsis, and a readiness to build in the land of Israel a new, just, free, and creative community.

A family of Eastern European refugees finds a home in racially charged St. Louis in this sweeping historical novel from a National Jewish Book Award finalist. In 1916, Mags Preacher arrives in the big city of St. Louis, fresh from the piney woods, hoping to learn the beauty trade. Instead, she winds up with a job at Fishbein’s Funeral Home, run by an émigré who came to America to flee the pogroms of Russia. Mags knows nothing about Jews except that they killed the Lord Jesus Christ, but by the time her boss saves her life during the race riots in East St. Louis, all her perceptions have changed. Marching to Zion is the story of Mags and of Mr. Fishbein, but it’s also the story of Fishbein’s daughter, Minerva, a beautiful redhead with an air of danger about her, and Magnus Bailey, Fishbein’s charismatic business partner and Mags’s first friend in town. When Magnus falls for Minerva’s willful spirit, he’ll learn just how dangerous she can be for a black man in America. Readers of Mary Glickman’s One More River will celebrate the return of Aurora Mae Stanton, who joins a cast of vibrant new characters in a tale that stretches from East St. Louis, Missouri, to Memphis, Tennessee, from World War I to the Great Depression. Hailed as “a powerful reminder of the discrimination and unspeakable hardships African Americans suffered,” Marching to Zion is a gripping love story, a fascinating angle on history, and a compelling meditation on justice and fate (Jewish Book Council).

In reggae song after reggae song Bob Marley and other reggae singers speak of the Promised Land of Ethiopia. “Repatriation is a must!” they cry. The Rastafari have been travelling to Ethiopia since the movement originated in Jamaica in 1930s. They consider it the Promised Land, and repatriation is a cornerstone of their faith. Though Ethiopians see Rastafari as immigrants, the Rastafari see themselves as returning members of the Ethiopian diaspora. In Visions of Zion, Erin C. MacLeod offers the first in-depth investigation into how Ethiopians perceive Rastafari and Rastafarians within Ethiopia and the role this unique immigrant community plays within Ethiopian society. Rastafari are unusual among migrants, basing their movements on spiritual rather than economic choices. This volume offers those who study the movement a broader understanding of the implications of repatriation. Taking the Ethiopian perspective into account, it argues that migrant and diaspora identities are the products of negotiation, and it illuminates the implications of this negotiation for concepts of citizenship, as well as for our understandings of pan-Africanism and south-south migration. Providing a rare look at migration to a non-Western country, this volume also fills a gap in the broader immigration studies literature.

In his introduction to "The Best American Short Stories 2008," Salman Rushdie called Ecotone one of a handful of journals on which "the health of the American short story depends." Now at the close of an award-winning first decade, the magazine has established itself as a preeminent venue for original short fiction from both recognized and emerging writers, with more than twenty stories from sixteen issues reprinted or noted in the "Best American, New Stories from the South, Pushcart," and "PEN/O. Henry" series. With the publication of this anthology, Lookout Books makes a permanent home for the vital work of "Ecotone" regular contributors Steve Almond, Rick Bass, Edith Pearlman, Ron Rash, Bill Roorbach, and Brad Watson, along with rising talents Lauren Groff, Ben Stroud, and Kevin Wilson, among others.

INQUEST IN ZION shows the aftermath of the Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857's southern Utah, in which 55 Mormon men of the Iron County Militia shoot down 120 Fancher wagon train emigrants, men, women and children, from Arkansas. Sarah Dunlap, a surviving victim, returns to Utah in 1876 to find the truth of the massacre and to testify against the Mormons who slaughtered her family. Sarah's orphaned life has left her unschooled in the ways of men and love. Despite her ignorance, she falls in love with Young Lee, a son of John D. Lee, the man she's come to see hang. As Sarah prepares to testify in Lee's trial, Mormon assailants try to put her "over the edge of the basin" because "she has a story to tell." She confronts each with sharp questions and her Colt pistol. The novel presents the later life, trial, "confession" and execution of John D. Lee, the only person ever tried or executed for the Massacre. His is the story of stubborn adherence to authority and its disastrous outcome. Soon after John D. Lee's execution by firing squad at the Mountain Meadows site of vast murder, Sarah and Young flee Utah. A Mormon, Danite assassin follows. "I guess it ain't over for me and Young. Never will be."

Author: Angel Fox
The villain is hard to spot in this twisted tale that begins like no other. This story is a line crossed. The balance between reality and fiction is so close that the perception of a situation may just cause you to paint the Hero as the Villian. Follow Heaven on a 3 part journey into her Paradise that is founded from a horrible nightmare. This book is sensual, sexual, garish and downright bold. Darkness can lurk in any of us. How we choose to act or react is all apart of our experiences. Heaven's rage is brought past various boundaries in this twisted tale. "The middle" is only a part of this 3 part series that shadows the details of a demented family and the people who fear them. Money, power, drugs, love, lust, murder, sex, pain, pleasure and family all have thin lines when tempted. The heroes and the villains all tell the same story but in a different way. Experience The Demonios in "Heaven's Paradise is Zion's Kingdom"!The middle isn't even the beginning!
