A gripping and dangerous voyage of discovery for a mother and daughter in Vietnam.

Category: Missing persons
A gripping and dangerous voyage of discovery for a mother and daughter in Vietnam. It's devastating enough when Pru's husband confesses to a long term affair over what should have been a romantic dinner to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. Then when her daughter, Molly, announces she's leaving for Vietnam on a Gap Year project, Pru knows her comfortable family life is over for good. Just as she's picking up the pieces, an email brings news that Molly has become involved with a group of political activists and could be in serious danger. Arriving in this beautiful but alien land, Pru embarks on a desperate search for her recalcitrant daughter. Totally out of her depth, she meets Ben, a veteran of the US war. He's intelligent, funny, handsome, but damaged. Still haunted by the atrocities of that conflict nearly thirty years ago, he's never been able to let go of the country and the gentle people who inhabit it. Together they tackle corrupt police, greedy property dealers and a ruthless local party cadre; and when eventually Pru finds her daughter, she also discovers an inner strength she never knew she had.

As a rule, countries consider clearly defined international borders to be paramount for their survival and prosperity. Most borders gain definition peacefully and, once they do, these definitions stick (i.e., the border remains settled). The failure to define borders, however, produces protracted, geopolitical, militarized competitions (or rivalries) between neighboring countries. Rider and Owsiak model this failure as a particular type of bargaining problem - namely, bargaining over territory that affects the distribution of power between neighbouring states significantly - that undermines efforts to resolve border disagreements peacefully. Countries must then overcome this bargaining problem or risk falling into a protracted rivalry, which then needs to be addressed with more resources. The authors develop a theory of how borders settle. They then explore the consequences of the failure to settle, theoretically connecting it to the onset of rivalries. This leads to the process that helps rivals overcome the bargaining problem, resolve their border disagreement, and terminate their rivalry.

But they must put aside their differences and, with the rest of their team, probe into the dark and seedy lives of those who hold positions of trust, and stop a cold-blooded serial killer from fulfilling his dreadful mission. But the culprit may be closer than they think...

Winner of the 2019 Robert S. Liebert Award (established jointly by the Association for Psychoanalytic Medicine and the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research) In the final years of the 19th century, Sigmund Freud began to construct evidence for the workings of an “unconscious.” On Dangerous Ground offers an innovative assessment of the complex role that his encounters with visual cultures-architecture, objects from earlier cultural epochs (“antiquities”), paintings, and illustrated books-played in that process. Diane O'Donoghue introduces, often using unpublished archival sources, the ways in which material phenomena profoundly informed Freud's decisions about what would, and would not, constitute the workings of an inner life. By returning to view content that Freud treated as forgettable, as distinct from repressed, O'Donoghue shows us a realm of experiences that Freud wished to remove from psychical meaning. These erasures form an amnesic core within Freud's psychoanalytic project, an absence that includes difficult aspects of his life narrative, beginning with the dislocations of his early childhood that he declared “not worth remembering.” What is made visible here is far from the inconsequential surface of experience; rather, we are shown a dangerous ground that exceeds the limits of what Freud wished to include within his early model of mind. In Freud's relation to visual cultures we find clues to what he attempted, in crafting his unconscious, to remove from sight.

Grant Pierce and Sky Milano. They were a formidable team, the homicide detective and the forensic chemist. Once Grant had wanted their partnership to be more, but they'd tried romance—and failed. Murder brought them together. A homicide in which the sole suspect was a man sitting on death row. The confounding case landed their careers on the line, while their irrepressible attraction made confronting the past inescapable…and becomming lovers unavoidable.
