Baltimore was once a vibrant manufacturing town, but today, with factory closings and steady job loss since the 1970s, it is home to some of the most impoverished neighborhoods in America. The Hero’s Fight provides an intimate look at the effects of deindustrialization on the lives of Baltimore’s urban poor, and sheds critical light on the unintended consequences of welfare policy on our most vulnerable communities. Drawing on her own uniquely immersive brand of fieldwork, conducted over the course of a decade in the neighborhoods of West Baltimore, Patricia Fernández-Kelly tells the stories of people like D. B. Wilson, Big Floyd, Towanda, and others whom the American welfare state treats with a mixture of contempt and pity—what Fernández-Kelly calls "ambivalent benevolence." She shows how growing up poor in the richest nation in the world involves daily interactions with agents of the state, an experience that differs significantly from that of more affluent populations. While ordinary Americans are treated as citizens and consumers, deprived and racially segregated populations are seen as objects of surveillance, containment, and punishment. Fernández-Kelly provides new insights into such topics as globalization and its effects on industrial decline and employment, the changing meanings of masculinity and femininity among the poor, social and cultural capital in poor neighborhoods, and the unique roles played by religion and entrepreneurship in destitute communities. Blending compelling portraits with in-depth scholarly analysis, The Hero’s Fight explores how the welfare state contributes to the perpetuation of urban poverty in America.

The Shadow Hero Workbook; Lessons to purify the Hero archetype in you; Healthy vs. Unhealthy Hero behavior; Unconscious Patterns 201 (38 pages original material on this topic) Is there anyone NOT purifying their gifts and talents from Shadow Hero behaviors? Possibly the first book in Hero Archetype literature attempting systematic access to disturbed sub- and unconscious Hero patterns; along with, therapeutic directions for resolving them. 18 short lessons designed to increase awareness of dysfunctional Hero patterns. 18 categories of functional and dysfunctional hero behavior are outlined. Therapeutic direction are suggested to clear each, using any method of your own choosing. NOT another Hero story. NOT a rehash of Campbell's hero cycle. The Workbook is stages of the Hero's cycle re-arranged by psychological category, as possible to do. Surprisingly, the lens of the Shadow Hero metaphor, enables us to to view most human problems. Virtually all of our modern problems can be discerned thru this lens. The moral and ethical shortcomings of Wall Street's culture of greed are wholly Shadow Hero behaviors. "The American Dream;" and, Horatio Alger rags to riches, are heroic myths. The Shadow Hero lens lays bare what needs purifying in our behavior based on these archetypes. Let's be willing to be more aware and work on them in our spare time. That's all we can do. I recommend working thru no more than one lesson per day on your self. Remember, as Arthur Clarke said, "focusing on pathological behavior to an excessive degree, is pathological in itself." The returning Prodigal Son focuses on being back in the Home of his Father and how that wonderful this will be. All shadow behavior tends to be UNconscious. We're only most conscious of our waking human experience from the neck-up. Still, we remain responsible for all habits-expressions from the two lower thirds of our psyche, sub- and unconscious. Also for coaches and therapists designing workshops around the Hero's Journey. Flesh out these insights into sequences of fun, social, interactive group processes for groups. The author is available to give trainings if you need to see how this is done so you can do it too. A companion to the 2014 work, Unconscious Patterns 101, Tools for the Hero's Journey of Self-healing https: //www.createspace.com/4899109 Were you encouraged or frustrated to play Hero or Rescuer as a child? Intuition to act out and purify our Shadow Hero is a driving force of our Child within, our Child archetype. Did you play and act out Hero behaviors (more masculine) or Rescuer behaviors (more feminine) or both as a child? The drive of our inner Hero must be channeled into expression, direction and purpose. If this does not occur, this drive can ferment, corrupt and become Shadow Hero behaviors, self-focused into negative, unproductive expressions. Unpurified Shadow Hero behaviors can be worked on and slowly purified by practice of any method practiced regularly. This can be artistic: painting, dancing, muscle-testing, calculus, mothering, writing, counseling, etc. The more self-mastery we have, easier it is to take an honest look at what lurks in the shadows of our own psyche. Concludes with The Hero's Journey as Soul Journey The Hero Prodigal Son

A stunning literary thriller in the tradition of Umberto Eco. The discovery of a forgotten book leads to a hunt for an elusive author who may or may not still be alive... Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery of lost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out 'La Sombra del Viento' by Julian Carax. But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night, as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a character from La Sombra del Viento, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in order to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left behind. A page-turning exploration of obsession in literature and love, and the places that obsession can lead.

It is 1953, the coronation year of Queen Elizabeth II . Sidney Chambers, vicar of Grantchester and honorary canon of Ely Cathedral, is a thirty-two-year-old bachelor. Tall, with dark brown hair, eyes the color of hazelnuts, and a reassuringly gentle manner, Sidney is an unconventional clerical detective. He can go where the police cannot. Together with his roguish friend, inspector Geordie Keating, Sidney inquires into the suspect suicide of a Cambridge solicitor, a scandalous jewelry theft at a New Year's Eve dinner party, the unexplained death of a jazz promoter's daughter, and a shocking art forgery that puts a close friend in danger. Sidney discovers that being a detective, like being a clergyman, means that you are never off duty, but he nonetheless manages to find time for a keen interest in cricket, warm beer, and hot jazz-as well as a curious fondness for a German widow three years his junior. With a whiff of Agatha Christie and a touch of G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown, The Grantchester Mysteries introduces a wonderful new hero into the world of detective fiction.

The fires on Bataan burned on the evening of April 9, 1942 — illuminating the white flags of surrender against the nighttime sky. Woefully outnumbered, outgunned, and ill-equipped, battered remnants of the American-Philippine army surrendered to the forces of the Rising Sun. Yet amongst the chaos and devastation of the American defeat, Army Captain Donald D. Blackburn refused to lay down his arms. With future SF legend Russell Volckmann, Blackburn escaped from Bataan and fled to the mountainous jungles of North Luzon, where they raised a private army of over 22,000 men against the Japanese. Once there, Blackburn organized a guerrilla regiment from among the native tribes in the Cagayan Valley. “Blackburn’s Headhunters,” as they came to be known, devastated the Japanese 14th Army within the western provinces of North Luzon and destroyed the Japanese naval base at Aparri — the largest enemy anchorage in the Philippines. After the war, Blackburn remained on active duty and played a key role in initiating Special Forces operations in Southeast Asia. In 1958, as commander of the 77th Special Forces Group, he spearheaded Operation White Star in Laos — the first major deployment of American Special Forces to a country with an active insurgency. Seven years later, Blackburn took command of the highly classified Studies and Observations Group (SOG), charged with performing secret missions now that main-force Communist incursions were on the rise. In the wake of the CIA’s disastrous Leaping Lena program, in 1964 Blackburn revitalized the Special Operations campaign in South Vietnam. Sending cross-border reconnaissance teams into Cambodia and North Vietnam, he discovered the clandestine networks and supply nodes of the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail. Taking this information directly to General Westmoreland, Blackburn received authorization to conduct full-scale operations against the NVA and Viet Cong operating in Laos and Cambodia. In combats large and small, the Communists realized they had met a master of insurgent tactics — and he was on the US side. Following his return to the United States, Blackburn was appointed “Special Assistant for Counterinsurgency and Special Activities,” where he was the architect of the infamous Son Tay Prison Raid. Officially termed Operation Ivory Coast, the Son Tay raid was the largest POW rescue mission — and indeed, the largest Special Forces operation — of the Vietnam War. During a period when United States troops in Southeast Asia faced guerrilla armies on every side, it has been little recognized today that America had a superb covert commander of its own, his guerrilla skills honed in resistance against Japan. This book follows Donald D. Blackburn through both his youthful days of desperate combat against an Empire, and through his days as a commander, imparting his lessons to the newly-realized ranks of America’s own Special Forces.
