The time is 1946-2000. The Place is Elmwood Springs, Missouri. World War II has ended. Neighbour Dorothy broadcasts daily from her front room - to an audience across the state - the antics of her wayward son Bobby and adolescent Anna Lee. It's hard to keep secrets in a community like theirs, but life isn't perfect, and even Neighbour Dorothy has a tragedy as well hidden as it can be. Into their midst comes the Oatman Family, white Southern Gospel singers who arrive for a pharmaceutical convention, and blow the place away. And then there's Hamm Sparks, a super-salesman everyone likes and trusts; and Charlie Fowler, the poultry king who can see the future in a bucket-to-go; and a wealth of other unforgettable residents. Not to mention the brand new Three Little Pigs Cafeteria, with its pink neon pig casting a glow over the high street and pointing the way to the future...
The day after Peter Leverett met his old friend Mason Flagg in Italy, Mason was found dead. The hours leading up to his death were a nightmare for Peter - both in their violence and in their maddening unreality.The blaze of events which followed was, Peter soon realised, ignited by a conflict between two men: Mason Flagg himself and Cass Kinsolving, a tortured, self-destructive painter, a natural enemy and prey to the monstrous evil of Mason Flagg. Three events - murder, rape and suicide - explode in the is relentless and passionate novel, almost overwhelming in its conception of the varieties of good and evil.
We are living in a time of unprecedented change. Today, the church is residing along the margins of modern culture. For many Christians, and especially for those who have been called to preach, the church's marginalized status has been difficult to accept. However, this new location of the church in the world is also the place for much optimism. In his book, Standing in the Gap, Paul Beck looks back to find a compelling model in the prophet Ezekiel for how to preach the gospel in today's ever-changing world. He unpacks the concept that while preaching from the margins requires a different mindset, it is still God's appointed means to reach the world. The good news is God-exalting preaching often occurs when the church has been knocked back against the ropes. It is along the cultural margins where biblical preaching can be the most effective and subversive.

This publication aims to critically compare the environmental standing to sue in Argentina and Italy with a special focus on the role of NGOs in the lawsuit. The text examines the European Union and the Mercosur environmental legislation and analyzes the effects of their implementation on Member States and associated members. It also focuses on other South American approaches such as the 2008 Ecuadorian Constitution that for the first time recognized constitutional rights to Nature as an autonomous legal subject. Furthermore, the text compares the environmental framework of the Argentinean and Italian Constitutions, exploring the new aspects introduced with their respective reform in 1994 and 2001. The work looks also at external related factors such as the influence that the US Supreme Court''s environmental jurisprudence had on the Argentinean Supreme Court. Finally, the text analyzes the environmental standing to sue regime of the two countries. In conclusion, it addresses a final remark relating to the introduction of the environmental class action as a legal tool to improve the current legal framework.
“Entrepreneurs see opportunities and build markets around them.” The purpose of this book is to improve our understanding of the ‘entrepreneurial market creation’ process by investigating the link between entrepreneurship and market creation and ultimately fill the gap in literature concerning this phenomenon. In order to do so, the ethnographic case study of LoudSauce is presented and analyzed. LoudSauce is an online ‘doing-good’ startup based in San Francisco, California. As part of the analysis, the G&S model is developed, which draws from both existing literature and empirical observations. The aim is to codify the knowledge gained from LoudSauce, in a compact way so that it can be compared to other cases and used for further research. Findings indicate that there are two main forces acting as catalysts during the entrepreneurial market creation process: vision and serendipity. They strongly influence each other and the process as a whole. Additionally, two types of external factors have been identified: human and intellectual factors. The outcomes of the process in the G&S model can lay the foundations of a brand new market.
