Summary

This Madison & Adams edition presents the true story of the infamous trial and all those included, together with the actual transcript of the testimonies, closing arguments and the verdict. 
The trial of political activists accused of inciting riots during the Democratic National Convention of 1968 attracted national attention and exposed the depths of political and cultural divisions at a crucial moment in the nation's history. The trial of the "Chicago Seven" became a defining event in public debates about the Vietnam War, the student protest movement, and the fairness of the federal judicial process.
The defendants and their lawyers used the courtroom as a platform for a broad critique of American society and an almost anarchic challenge to the legitimacy of governmental authority. The judge in the case displayed open contempt for the defendants, and his own unorthodox behavior threatened public confidence in the judiciary. The nearly five-month long trial illustrated the contentious and often theatrical nature of public affairs during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    This book consists of two titles, which are the following: 
      
    Book 1: Many people don’t understand what critical thinking is. Moreover, not all the ones that do, apply it in their daily lives. Politics, the media, and so many other aspects of society show how small the number is of people who use their brains. 
    Critical thinking means, among others, that you look at multiple sides of a controversial topic, that you can stay objective and put away your biases until you have reached a firm conclusion based on verifiable facts. This skill is highly valuable in job interviews, relationships, and everyday life. 
    In order to improve your critical thinking skills, it would be best to adopt the best practices that help you accomplish this task. In other words, some things help you develop this skill, others are a waste of time and effort, or even worse, go against it and cause a degeneration of your intellect and open-minded attitude. 
      
      
      
      
    Book 2: What makes someone a critical thinker? 
      
    The attributes of such a person are elaborately described in this book. Alongside with that, the book highlights the many benefits of critical thinking, an often-neglected brain skills society needs to improve on. 
      
    However, most of the book is focused on relevant and irrelevant reasoning. So often, we attribute certain consequences to the wrong causes. We jump to conclusions based on limited information, emotions, or generalizations. This book will clear all that up by giving you new insights to determine what is relevant and what is not.

    Grief and Her Narrative - A...

    Jemima Atar first experienced the unfolding of her complex narrative when she began exploring her life with the help of her therapist. Throughout the turmoil that characterised facing up to the truth of painful childhood trauma, Jemima’s therapist was her steadfast anchor, providing safety and support. But when he suddenly had to terminate the sessions after almost two years, Jemima found herself thrown into the depths of unfamiliar, isolating, misunderstood Grief. 
    In this personal memoir, the author continues her narrative without her therapist, letting the Grief process take the reins. Grief and Her Narrative explores a particular form of loss that is not commonly addressed in psychotherapeutic fields or elsewhere, and candidly asks the reader to be involved in asking questions, many of which have no clear answers. Through an exploration of both the common and the unique features of Jemima’s grief, this authentic memoir offers connection to readers seeking to understand their own multifaceted experiences, and invites those in the field of psychotherapy to join this neglected discussion. 
    What began as a form of therapeutic self-expression and creative rebuilding, expanded into a valuable and sensitively written work which documents grief in all its forms. The book reaches out to anyone experiencing bereavement, hopelessness, uncertainty, trauma, or suffering of any sort, and to those who simply wish to gain insight into a personal journey of recovery.

    Jesus of the East - Reclaiming...

    Why does our theology of salvation focus on forgiving sinners, but not on healing those wounded by sin? Much of Western Christianity has subdued the narrative of Jesus as a Palestinian Jewish healer and liberator who served the sick and oppressed. But the Jesus of the Gospels is a revolutionary who stands with the sinned against, the wounded, and the marginalized. In Jesus of the East, author Phuc Luu re-narrates the life of Jesus to show how he made it his work to topple systems that privileged the few and disregarded the many, especially the poor and lowest. In this provocative book, Luu offers a counter-narrative to Western Christianity, which for centuries has legitimized colonization and violence to prop up the powerful at the expense of the masses. Pulling from the tradition of the early Eastern church, the present work of theologians of the oppressed, and Luu’s own experiences as a Vietnamese immigrant, Jesus of the East offers a transformative vision of healing for the world. For those living in the land between pain and hope, Luu’s prophetic words will renew our imaginations and draw us closer to the heart of God.

    Thank you for joining me on this giggle-fest journey behind the scenes and between the sheets to discover the magical world of taboo behavior. As a teenager, there wasn’t a lot of sound advice coming in my direction for what could or would happen down some of the dark paths I took. I just knew the DANGER sign at the beginning of the craggy path littered with sparkles and shiny trinkets was a welcoming beacon to undiscovered territory and orgasmic glory. Every journey has a beginning. As such, I am going to throw a whole bunch of things at you that are not on your radar or a whole lot of other people’s radar. If that special “talk” you got didn’t include options to create multiple g-spots and multiple orgasms, an index finger can touch an ovary from the inside, most skin to skin contact sexually transmitted diseases can be washed off after sex, why alcohol ruins a real female orgasm, why some male penises bend to the left, exercises to reduce or eliminate prolapse, is bigger really better, how to get tight if you are still wondering if it is in yet, knowing how to establish proper sexual boundaries, how to properly communicate with your partner, why women and men don’t begin to have the best orgasms of their lives until they are about thirty years old (yep) or the tell-tale signs to spot a bad lay from across the room… When you were two, I bet you knew what a car was, you had probably seen a bicycle or even a tricycle but that Big Wheel in front of you was the item to master first. Sex is no different! You were born with all the parts but you can’t use them properly until you learn how. This book is dedicated to teaching you HOW. Follow some of the choice mistakes I encountered and how I got around or out of a few of the wrecks when I used the keys to my brand new Ferrari without knowing how to ride a bicycle first. I was given the usual puritanical instructions under the guise of you will fall in love, get married and on your wedding night have the most amazing virgin sex Never known to mankind. Translated to: you are going to go SPLAT! Oh, not following the arcane program? Well, in case you are having pre-marital sex, here’s the number to a counselor if you think you got pregnant or a sti/std during that massively disappointing 30 second love fest and don’t forget to use a condom… next time. Cripes! With that kind of advice, it is no wonder why people turn to porn for education. At least their train wreck looks like fun. Psssst… it’s an act. It’s all fake. Follow me through the pages and get the goods the behind-the-green-door cottage industry hides from the public. If you are a gifted child, creative curious teenager, a twenty in search of a better sex life, a thirty getting ready to actually find the right one or a forty questioning it all… oh, let’s go visit some places you probably don’t want to go so you can make better, more educated choices. You can thank me by sharing what you learn with others. Get ready to put on your Super Cape and let’s confine ignorant education leading to poor sexual performance and diseases where they belong… back in the Stone Age. Enjoy the Letters To Jamison. C.
