From Europe to the United States and beyond, opportunistic politicians have exploited economic crisis, terrorist attacks and an influx of refugees to bring hateful and reactionary views from the margins of political discourse into the corridors of power. This climate has already helped propel Donald Trump to the White House, pushed Britain out of the European Union, and put Marine Le Pen within striking distance of the French presidency. Sasha Polakow-Suransky’s on-the-ground reportage and interviews with the rising stars of the new right tell the story of how we got here, tracing the global rise of anti-immigration politics and the ruthlessly effective rebranding of Europe’s new far right as defenders of Western liberal values. Go Back to Where You Came From is an indispensable account of why xenophobia went mainstream in countries known historically as defenders of human rights and models of tolerance.

Tim Soutphommasane boldly stakes a claim for the overwhelming success of multiculturalism in Australia. European governments are declaring multiculturalism a failure, with many conservatives in Australia hastening to agree. But is a multicultural approach to integration and diversity really as destructive as critics say? Have we been too quick to declare its demise? Offering an unflinching and informed defence of cultural diversity, Soutphommasane shows that multiculturalism is more than laksa, kebabs or souvlaki and that it doesn’t automatically spell cultural relativism, ethnic ghettos or reverse racism. In fact, multicultural Australia has been a national success story.

Finding Your Way Back to God

Five Awakenings to Your New Life

“God, if you’re real, make yourself real to me.” Each of us spends our lives on a journey toward God. Yet often our most deeply felt longings—for meaning, for love, for significance—end up leading us away from, instead of toward, our Creator and the person he made us to be. Finding Your Way Back to God shows you how to understand and listen to your longings in a whole new way. It’s about waking up to who you really are, and daring to believe that God wants to be found even more than you want to find him. It’s about making the biggest wager of your life as you ask God to make himself known to you. And it’s about watching what happens next.

No one can escape the challenges that must be faced when Saturn makes its twenty-nine year return. Tumultuous for some, a corrected path for others and most certainly a turning point for all. Jim Buckman, a singer/songwriter with extraordinary promise, seems to lose everything, sinking to the bottom in a sea of alcohol and broken dreams. His band falls apart, his lover leaves and his self-confidence is shattered. Death ruminates in his beleaguered mind. Not his physical demise, but his old ways, his old life. It's hard to admit that he isn't the man he expected to be. He concludes that character is the issue. No matter what talents he possesses, the promise may never be realized because he lacks the character to nurture them and give them meaning. He realizes that doing right, thinking positively and speaking kindly are the foundations of patience, that patience breeds self-confidence, and self-confidence is the enabler for all potential. Good people exist. They surround him, but he is not one of them. Succumbing to this revelation fills him with self-hate. He wants to change, but first he must retrace the path of the man he has become. By reconnecting with his roots he finds his way back to his music. His fantastic journey crosses time and space righting his path, fulfilling his destiny and finding the love of his life. Impossible to put down! A ripping good story! A Triumph! - Chaz Scoggins, Author of 'Bricks and Bats', 'Game of My Life' and 'Tales from the Impossible Dream'.

The Arm of the Lord

End Times Mystery

You may want to know what this book is about. It isnt about the end of the world. Rather, it is an open portal to what the Bible says is an inevitable future when God reconciles His creation to Himself. Part of that reconciliation will be when He steps into time and space and says, Times up, now the judgment. The Arm of the Lord is a Hebrew idiom for the power of Yahweh (????), excerpted from Isaiah 53:1. It isnt coincidental that the magnificent 53rd chapter of Isaiah, the Suffering Servant, starts with this preamble. The power of God examined in this story is Gods power to redeem fallen mankind without compromising His righteousness.

All three books of the Children of Avalon series in one! Follow the adventures of Scai, Dylan and Bridget straight on through to the end. Air: Merlin’s Chalice In one day Scai has gone from being considered unusual by the people of her little Welsh village to an outcast fleeing for her life. Left on the church steps as a baby, she knows nothing of her history—or her abilities. Did she really stop the rain just by wishing it to stop? But she is determined to learn all she can. Travelling alone to find her family seems to be the only way she’s going to find the answers she seeks. Her journey leads her to the comical old knight Sir Dagonet, who tells her that she is one of a magical people called the Vallen. Together they continue on, joined by the handsome Dylan and the fiery Bridget on a new quest—to find the fabled Merlin’s Chalice, said to hold all the power of the entrapped wizard. Together, Scai, Dylan and Bridget discover that they are the long awaited Children of Avalon, destined to save the world from power-hungry Lady Nimuë—unless she kills them first. Along the way, Scai finds magic—both in the wind and air that she can control at will, and in the sweet ache of a first love that she cannot. Water: Excalibur’s Return Dylan has never been good enough. Neither his foster-brother nor his father have ever thought so. But now, finally, Dylan has a chance to demonstrate what he can do in the most difficult of situations. Dylan is the only descendant of the great Merlin and a member of a magical race known as the Vallen. One of the Children of Avalon, he knows he is strong enough to defeat Lady Nimuë. But when Dylan thinks he can take her on on his own, he is quickly shown otherwise. When not even the love of a beautiful and powerful woman is enough, what will it take for Dylan to prove that he is worthy of taking on the greatest threat Britain has ever faced? Fire: Nimuë’s Destiny Bridget isn’t sure she has what it takes to be a leader, but she’s about to find out. The witch hunts are getting worse by the day. But when Lady Nimuë kidnaps Bridget’s own family things get personal. Only Bridget, the brilliant Scai and powerful Dylan—the prophesied Children of Avalon—have the power to defeat Lady Nimuë. The question is, does Bridget have the strength of will to lead them through to the end? When Scai’s childhood friend, Aron the blacksmith, joins their group, Bridget is suddenly faced with a new challenge—this one from her heart. Will her love for Aron get in the way of defeating Nimuë, or will it give her the confidence she’ll need?
