Summary

Some of the greatest scientists, philosophers, and historians of all time have advocated the concept of causality, or cause and effect, the idea that we live in a universe in which every effect has a root cause and nothing happens purely by chance. Michael Lee believes that these causal factors – the drivers of change – present challenges for society, and that by studying the possible outcomes of these challenges we can understand, foresee and model the world of tomorrow.
In Codebreaking our future he examines the structural foundations of modern society and provides an overview of the four major challenges that will dominate causal change in this century. Drawing on centuries of classic academic research as well as examples from contemporary scientists, demographers and trend-watchers, Codebreaking our future establishes the methods for predicting the future by studying the causal drivers of all change.

    Crime expert Linda Fairstein reveals the sinister ways that rapists select and attack their victims, and what you need to know to protect yourself From the man who haunted midtown Manhattan’s high-rise office buildings, to the stalker in the wooded suburbs near Nashville, serial rapists often have one chilling trait in common: They operate in “comfort zones.” Sometimes they find their own comfort zones, such as the stairwell of a familiar office building. Other times they may pinpoint their victims’ comfort zones, such as the bedroom of an unlocked house. In both cases, experienced sexual predators exploit their potential victims’ most unguarded moments. In How Serial Rapists Target Their Victims, Linda Fairstein breaks down the patterns of these violent criminals and describes the day-to-day ways that women can best safeguard against them. Originally published in Cosmopolitan, this essay is now available in digital format for the first time and features a new introduction by the author.

    A powerful feminist examination of the deeply ingrained roots of rape in our shared cultural values Rape is the most frequently occurring violent crime in America. In this courageous, controversial, and groundbreaking work, the poet, feminist, and philosopher Susan Griffin examines rape as an inevitable result of a culture that celebrates and rewards aggressive sexual behavior in men, and one in which male dominance and female submissiveness have long been considered natural.   With razor-sharp intelligence, clear-eyed candor, and surprising lyricism, Griffin explores the psychological, historical, political, and societal underpinnings of this devastating act, which cruelly denies a victim her self-determination. By viewing the dark phenomenon of rape through the lens of her personal experience—and through the words of injured parties, writers, legal agencies, and the media—Griffin’s powerful discourse is an essential contribution to feminist thought and literature.

    ** Fair warning:  This is a true story of sexual abuse, drugs, rape, betrayal and triumph **
    
    
    **Warning:  This book contains crude language and is not for the faint of heart**
    
    
    As I sat down to write this story about my life, I had to think a long time about how to start my story.
    
    I learned early that you cannot substitute water for milk on cereal so when there was no milk in the house, I just ate it dry.
    
    Dad was pretty cranky just as a general rule. He’d come home from work and throw a temper tantrum at all the dirty dishes and no supper and Mom would say, “Oh shut up and drink your beer.”
    
    It was not a nice thing, the way Len started treating me. I remember scenes like the time he pushed me and sat on me.
    
    I had to stop and think about what happened next in this sick saga.
