              Blood: The Stuff of Life
               

              Blood: The Stuff of Life (EPUB ebook)

              By Hill, Lawrence

              Blood runs red through every person's arteries and fulfills the same functions in every human being. The study of blood has advanced our understanding of biology and improved medical treatments, but its cultural and social representations have divided us perennially. Blood pulses... through religion, literature, and the visual arts. Every time it pools or spills, we learn a little more about what brings human beings together and what pulls us apart. For centuries, perceptions of difference in our blood have separated people on the basis of gender, race, class, and nation. Ideas about blood purity have spawned rules about who gets to belong to a family or cultural group, who enjoys the rights of citizenship and nationality, what privileges one can expect to be granted or denied, whether you inherit poverty or the right to rule over the masses, what constitutes fair play in sport, and what defines a person's identity. Blood: The Stuff of Life is a bold meditation on blood as an historical and contemporary marker of identity, belonging, gender, race, class, citizenship, athletic superiority, and nationhood. 'Chock full of fascinating statistics, anecdotes and arguments about blood and ranges in topics from embryonic stem cell research and doping in sports, to the Holocaust and the search for ancestors. It's entertaining, shocking and informative' -Vancouver Sun

              The Deserter's Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away from the War in Iraq
               

              The Deserter's Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away from the War in Iraq (EPUB ebook)

              By Key, Joshua; With Hill, Lawrence

              "Destined to become part of the literature of the Iraq war . . . A substantial contribution to history."-Los Angeles Times Now in paperback, The Deserter's Tale is the first memoir from a soldier who deserted from the war in Iraq, and a vivid and damning indictment of the America...n military campaign. In spring 2003, young Oklahoman Joshua Key was sent to Ramadi as part of a combat engineer company. It was not the campaign against terrorists and evildoers he had expected. Key saw Iraqi civilians beaten, shot, and killed, or maimed for little or no provocation. After seven months in Iraq, Key was home on leave and knew he could not return. So he took his family and went underground in the United States, finally seeking asylum in Canada after fourteen months in hiding. Detailing the grinding horrors of life as part of an occupying force, The Deserter's Tale is the story of a conservative-minded family man and patriot who went to war believing unquestioningly in his government's commitment to integrity and justice, and how what he saw in Iraq transformed him into someone who could no longer serve his country.
