MORE THAN 20 MILLION COPIES OFANN RULE'S BOOKS IN PRINT! In this unnerving collection drawn from her personal crime files, "America's best true-crime writer" (Kirkus Reviews) Ann Rule brilliantly dissects the convoluted love affairs that all too often end in violence. Expertly analyzing a shocking, headline-making case, Rule unmasks the deadly motives inside a seemingly idyllic marriage: a beautiful young wife, a rising star in America's top-ranked computer corporation, and a prosperous husband, the scion of a family building business. With an adorable son and a gorgeous home, the couple seemed to have it all. But a furtive evil permeated their days and nights, dragging them into a murky world of drugs, sordid sex, and con operations. In this realm, one of them would prove to be a virtual innocent, the other a manipulator with no conscience. Sudden, violent death brought their charade of a fairy-tale romance to a tragic end -- with a brutal crime that might never have come to light were it not for the stubborn detectives and prosecutors whose fight for justice spanned an entire decade. Empty Promises recounts several other cases where the search for love brought only lies and betrayal -- a cautionary primer, perhaps, for those who trust too much too soon. Powerful because they strike so close to home, the cases in Empty Promises will leave readers shaken by the realities of love gone terribly -- and fatally -- wrong.

Empty Promises

Engaging with the long-running debate on whether Canadians should look to government or to the private sector for retirement income security, Empty Promises is a crucial work concerned with the future of the Canadian retirement system.

Workplace pensions are a vital part of Canada’s retirement income system, but these plans have reached a state of crisis as a result of their low coverage and inadequate, insecure, and unequally distributed benefits. Reviewing pension plans through a legal and historical lens, Empty Promises reveals the paradoxical effects and inevitable failure of a pension system built on the interests of employers rather than employees. Elizabeth Shilton examines the evolution of pension law in Canada from the 1870s to the early twenty-first century, highlighting the foreseeably futile struggle of legislators to create and sustain employees’ pension rights without undermining employers’ incentives. The current system gives employers considerable discretion and control in pension design and administration. Shilton appeals for a model that is not hostage to business interests. She recommends replacing today’s employer-controlled systems with pensions shaped by the public interest, expanding mandatory broad-based or state-pension systems such as the Canada Pension Plan to generate pensions that respond to the changing workplace and address the needs and interests of retirees. Engaging with the long-running debate on whether Canadians should look to government or to the private sector for retirement income security, Empty Promises is a crucial work concerned with the future of the Canadian retirement system.

This project examines the ways in which infrastructure leaves its mark within contemporary Caribbean cultural representations. Roads, electrical grids, networks, and nuclear plants become dynamic sites for reflecting on the political, economic, and social issues facing the region at the turn of the twenty-first century. Within a selection of literature and visual culture from the Greater Antilles, I explore the tension between political discourse and material reality, analyzing the promises that infrastructures represent and the embodied experiences of their intended beneficiaries. This exercise ultimately points to the persistence of colonialism in the region, from the aftermath of Cold War developmentalism to the consolidation of aid and debt as forms of global coloniality. Building upon work by sociologists, anthropologists, and geographers in the growing field of critical infrastructure studies, I develop a methodology for analyzing infrastructure within literature. In addition to literal representations, I examine the diverse ways in which it leaves its mark on the text. I look to setting, characterization, and narrative structure. I explore the ways in which roads, electricity, and water appear through metaphor and metonymy, as well as in rhythm, affect, and imagery. In this way, literature can contribute a unique perspective to critical infrastructure studies. In the first chapter of this dissertation, the lasting impact of modernization in Puerto Rico manifests itself within literature and visual art through the breakdown of transportation, the electrical grid and, more recently, the financial impasse of an unpayable debt. In the second chapter, I consider speculative fiction that extrapolates emergent technologies within a Caribbean setting. Yoruba and Taino deities play a key role, merging with IT technology and staging a complex investment in the future. Finally, in the third chapter, I dissect representations of stalled initiatives. I highlight the ecosystem of people, things, and ideas that condition the outcome of projects like a Soviet-funded nuclear plant in Cuba or post-quake reconstruction led by the international community in Haiti.

Counterfeit Gods

Culturally transforming as well as biblically based, COUNTERFEIT GODS is a powerful look at the temptation to worship what can only disappoint, and is a vital message in today's current climate of financial and social difficulty.

The issue of idolatry has been with the human race for thousands of years; the subtle temptation is always to take what is good and turn it into the ultimate good, elevating it above all other things in the search for security and meaning. In this timely and challenging book, New York pastor Timothy Keller looks at the issue of idolatry throughout the Bible -- from the worship of actual idols in the Old Testament, to the idolatry of money by the rich young ruler when he was challenged by Jesus to give up all his wealth. Using classic stories from the Bible Keller cuts through our dependence on the glittering false idols of money, sex and power to uncover the path towards trust in the real ultimate -- God. Today's idols may look different from those of the Old Testament, but Keller argues that they are no less damaging. Culturally transforming as well as biblically based, COUNTERFEIT GODS is a powerful look at the temptation to worship what can only disappoint, and is a vital message in today's current climate of financial and social difficulty.
