The first in a six-book series, We the Children follows Ben, his tech-savvy friend, Jill, and the class know-it-all, Robert, as they uncover a remarkable history and use it to protect the school. Sixth grader Benjamin Pratt loves history, which makes going to the historic Duncan Oakes School a pretty cool thing. But a wave of commercialization is hitting the area and his beloved school is slated to be torn down to make room for an entertainment park. This would be most kids’ dream—except there’s more to the developers than meets the eye… and more to the school. Because weeks before the wrecking ball is due to strike, Ben finds an old leather pouch that contains a parchment scroll with a note three students wrote in 1791. The students call themselves the Keepers of the School, and it turns out they’re not the only secret group to have existed at Duncan Oakes.

Welcome to the world of little ones and their secret, poetic language. When a five-year-old adopted from China can express her lack of personal value non-verbally in play and name the feeling “the pile of none,” it may be time for adults to tune into children’s play and non-verbal communication on a deeper level. The metaphorical language of very young children accurately reflects the story of their experiences and relationships, but it is too often dismissed by adults as merely child’s play. Parenting plans, weighty court decisions and child investigations that disregard the non-verbal testimony of children can contribute to bending a child’s development in the wrong direction damaging his or her life-long journey. Because of this miscommunication, children are often forced to spend time with the very people who hurt them and endure years of feeling invalidated, invisible, and powerless. It is common knowledge that childhood stories shape adult lives. In transforming old, worn-out stories about one’s identity, the individual may discover how much happiness may be embraced by re-claiming one’s true identity. We the Children invites the reader to begin the process of becoming empowered by first transforming any story in which he or she is a victim into one in which the reader might emerge feeling fully empowered. Personal empowerment opens the imagination by converting negative messages about oneself learned in childhood into affirmations as to what is good about us now – ask yourself – what degree of freedom could be obtained?

A man and woman find their genders and sexualities brought radically into question when their bodies sprout new parts, seemingly out of thin air…. A man travels from Japan to Latin America in search of revolutionary purpose and finds much more than he bargains for…. A journalist investigates a poisoning at an elementary school and gets lost in an underworld of buried crimes, secret societies, and haunted forests…. Two young killers, exiled from Japan, find a new beginning as resistance fighters in Peru…. These are but a few of the stories told in We, the Children of Cats, a new collection of provocative early works by Tomoyuki Hoshino, winner of the 2011 Kenzaburo Oe Award in Literature and author of the powerhouse novel Lonely Hearts Killer (PM Press, 2009). Drawing on sources as diverse as Borges, Nabokov, Garcia-Marquez, Kenji Nakagami and traditional Japanese folklore, Hoshino creates a challenging, slyly subversive literary world all his own. By turns teasing and terrifying, laconic and luminous, the stories in this anthology demonstrate Hoshino’s view of literature as “an art that wavers, like a heat shimmer, between joy at the prospect of becoming something else and despair at knowing that such a transformation is ultimately impossible…a novel’s words trace the pattern of scars left by the struggle between these two feelings.” Blending an uncompromising ethical vision with exuberant, freewheeling imagery and bracing formal experimentation, the five short stories and three novellas included in We, the Children of Cats show the full range and force of Hoshino’s imagination; the anthology also includes an afterword by translator and editor Brian Bergstrom and a new preface by Hoshino himself.

Men’s rights and men’s issues have often been ignored by the powers that be in Indian and around the world. On top of this, the number of gender biased laws such as 498a and Domestic Violence or DV have created a difficult legal situation for Indian men.

The chapters of this book are written by a number of members and volunteers of SIFF. They deal with a number of issues including biased laws, father’s rights, child separation, domestic violence, MGTOW, mental health, and men’s activism. Taken together, they constitute a unique picture of what it is like to be a man in India in this day and age.

This account of six families whose children were wrongly seized by child protection services vividly illustrates the constitutional balancing act where medicine, family interests, and child safety can clash. • Illustrates how the mantra "best interests of the child" masks errors, assumptions, and stereotypes that hide the real harm child protection policies are doing to children and families • Reveals how families are wrongly separated when overworked and underskilled caseworkers jump to conclusions of guilt, ignoring evidence of innocence • Focuses on the child protection system from the moment of intervention—starting with the child abuse hotline call that targets a specific child as a victim and his or her parents as suspects • Highlights the many decision points, attitudes, policies, and practices that operate to make even innocent parents vulnerable to having their children taken from them • Explains why basic due process principles ordered by federal and state courts would go a long way to help families, but cautions that just results depend on effective family defense counsel

Since writing We the Corrupt People over two years ago, many things of a corrupt nature have occurred in this country. To write of these important events would necessitate another book. The author randomly took three days of his local newspaper encompassing one week, and marked out all items dealing with corruption in all its forms. Day one had thirty items, day two contained forty-five items, and day three reported another thirty items. All items ranged from the least corrupt actions such as ticketing of all types of driving infractions, hit and run accidents, drug offenses of all types, murders–especially between teenagers, or family members killing other family members to rapes, child molesting, spies in this country, telephone and internet wire- tapping, bribing of officials, corporate bonuses of corrupt bank officials, and the Bernard Madoff case. There were hundreds of people fired for elder abuse, political officials cheating on their spouses, parents giving kids alcohol, the list goes on and on, ad nauseam every day, week, month—forever— these noted are only a few of the many corrupt actions. The country that once was the envy of the world is now the most corrupt of countries anywhere.
