Summary

This Civil War history and guide examines a major turning point in cavalry combat and includes a GPS guided tour of the battlefield.   Just before dawn on June 9, 1863, Union soldiers materialized from a thick fog near the banks of Virginia's Rappahannock River to ambush sleeping Confederates. The ensuing struggle, which lasted throughout the day, was to be known as the Battle of Brandy Station—the largest cavalry battle ever fought on North American soil. These events marked a major turning point in the Civil War: the waning era of Confederate cavalry dominance in the East gave way to a confident and powerful Union mounted arm.   Historian Eric J. Wittenberg meticulously captures the drama and significance of these events in this fascinating volume. The GPS guided tour of the battlefield is supplemented with illustrations and maps by master cartographer Steven Stanley.

    At the end of the Cold War the proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction replaced the Soviet Union as the new enemy of world peace. The pariah WMD states became enemy No. 1. The significance of militant Islams growing disgust with Western foreign policy and apparent indifference to the suffering of Muslims worldwide was missed until it was too late.In Rise of Militant Islam Anthony Tucker-Jones examines from an insiders perspective how Western intelligence misinterpreted every landmark event on the road to 9/11 and ultimately failed to curb global jihad.  The 9/11 attack provoked a War on Terror which has yet to fully curb the threat of global jihad or bring ringleader Osama bin Laden to justice.Anthony Tucker-Jones, who served in the Defense Intelligence Staff, the British Ministry of Defenses top intelligence assessment organization, gained an unparalleled insiders view of the growing war on terror and how the Wests intelligence agencies were wrong-footed at almost every turn.  He traces the rise of international terrorism and its networks throughout the Muslim world, in Afghanistan, the Balkans, Algeria, Chechnya, Somalia and across the Middle East, and he uncovers the connections between them. He shows how the key to the growth of Al Qaeda as a global terrorist organization was not only the emergence of Osama bin Laden, but also the growing understanding of asymmetrical warfare which the CIA had taught anti-Soviet jihadists in Afghanistan in the 1980s.

In collaboration with The Global Center for Women and Justice at Vanguard University, Ending Human Trafficking is an accessible and compelling resource for Christian leaders, written by seasoned leaders in the struggle against modern slavery.

    New neuroscience research is showing us the long-term impact that reading aloud has on children, stretching all the way into adulthood. We have always known that reading aloud is an important way to bond with your baby and develop language skills. But the latest research, led by author Rekha S. Rajan, shows that individuals who were read to more frequently as children showed a healthier brain in old age. Parents reading to their own child was a valuable and important part of supporting lifelong brain development. The Read Aloud Factor gives parents and caretakers what they need to make read-alouds a regular and enjoyable part of the family routine. This innovative book shares the latest research on brain development, describes how reading aloud supports language and social-emotional development, and provides ideas for integrating STEAM practices of reading aloud with arts and technology. The scientific insight that inspired this project is distilled into accessible, actionable information for parents and educators on how to read aloud in an effective, engaging, and meaningful way. The key to the book is its accessible approach, which combines findings from the most modern research to provide new pathways for parents and caregivers to support their baby's development.
