Twenty-two-year-old Honor Melanie (Mel) Sullivan has an affliction. Due to childhood trauma and inappropriate social behavior, she is diagnosed with Asperger's, a form of autism. But Mel knows Asperger's is not her true affliction. She prefers not to gaze into a person’s eyes because she is a soul reader, and what she sees can be frightening. It can also get Mel into trouble. After a brush with the law, Mel leaves her family home in Southern California and travels to Oregon, where she meets Harley Davidson-riding William McCarty (Billy the Kid) and stumbles upon a human-trafficking/baby-selling scheme involving a foreign girl from Kazakhstan and others. Even though Mel's life is in danger, she won't stop until she finds the answers that will help those unable to help themselves. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sophie James.

Weak, corrupt, and politically unstable, the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan are dismissed as isolated and irrelevant to the outside world. But are they? This hard-hitting book argues that Central Asia is in reality a globalization leader with more extensive involvement in economics, politics, and security dynamics beyond its borders than any other world region. Yet Central Asia's international activities are mostly hidden from view, with disturbing implications for world security. Based on years of research and involvement in the region, Alexander Cooley and John Heathershaw reveal how business networks, elite bank accounts, overseas courts, third-party brokers, and Western lawyers connect Central Asia's supposedly isolated leaders with global power centers. The authors also uncover widespread Western participation in money laundering, bribery, foreign lobbying by autocratic governments, and the exploiting of legal loopholes within Central Asia. Riveting and important, this book exposes the global connections of a troubled region that must no longer be ignored. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Yen.

It was soon complicated by demonic foreign agents' violent efforts to steal the chip. What followed generated extreme suspense, tyranny, foreign intrigue, kidnapping, murder, and failure. After all, this exceptional technology would not only cure Alzheimer's disease, but it would permit anyone with an implanted computerized chip to communicate mentally with computers worldwide. The U.S. government soon realized the intricacies of this technology, in the wrong hands, would be devastating to mankind. As a consequence, the U.S. was forced to take action to prevent the extraordinary. The balance of this book is written depicting a future time frame beginning sometime after 2020 AD.

The struggle between Russia and Great Britain over Central Asia in the nineteenth century was the original "great game." But in the past quarter century, a new "great game" has emerged, pitting America against a newly aggressive Russia and a resource-hungry China, all struggling for influence over the same region, now one of the most volatile areas in the world: The long border region stretching from Iran through Pakistan to Kashmir. In Great Games, Local Rules, Alexander Cooley, one of America's most respected international relations scholars, explores the dynamics of the new competition for control of the region since 9/11. All three great powers have crafted strategies to increase their power in the area, which includes Afghanistan and the former Soviet republics of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan. Each nation is pursuing important goals: Basing rights for the US, access to natural resources for the Chinese, and increased political influence for the Russians. However, overlooked in all of the talk about this new great game is fact that the Central Asian governments have proven themselves critical agents in their own right, establishing local rules for external power involvement that serve to fend off foreign interest. As a result, despite a decade of intense interest from the United States, Russia, and China, Central Asia remains a collection of segmented states, and the external competition has merely reinforced the sovereign authority of the individual Central Asian governments. A careful and surprising analysis of how small states interact with great powers in a vital region, Great Games, Local Rules greatly advances our understanding of how global politics actually works in the contemporary era. 1.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) first came into being as the result of border negotiations between Russia and China but has evolved into Central Asia's foremost regional organization. Comprised of Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and China, the SCO's mandate encompasses both trade and security in a region that has once again become a site of geopolitical struggle. This book examines Russia's long relationship with Central Asia and argues that this relationship, together with competition from the United States and China, has made the SCO a necessary tool for Russian foreign policy in the region.
