A searing and "magisterial" (Cornel West) history of American racial exploitation and resistance, told through the turbulent past of the city of St. Louis. From Lewis and Clark's 1804 expedition to the 2014 uprising in Ferguson, American history has been made in St. Louis. And as Walter Johnson shows in The Broken Heart of America, the city exemplifies how imperialism, racism, and capitalism have persistently entwined to corrupt the nation's past. St. Louis was a staging post for Indian removal and imperial expansion, and its wealth grew on the backs of its poor Black residents, from slavery through redlining and urban renewal. But it was once also America's most radical city, home to anti-capitalist immigrants, the Civil War's first general emancipation, and the nation's first general strike -- a legacy of resistance that endures. A blistering history of a city's rise and decline, The Broken Heart of America will forever change how we think about the United States.

In this book you will discover: - The true source of America's greatness--proven by all History - The connection between our dying churches and our falling nation - Why American Christians are mostly to blame - The One and Only cure for the curse among us For every American Christian, Randy's work is a powerful but loving call--back to our nation's God-given destiny--goodness. Today, the world wonders, "Is America worth one good man's life?" Our Founders believed it. We believed it once. This book will help us believe it again! Randy has been a church planter, a minister and now a full-time author. Having lived in the birthplace of America for over two decades, he has become very passionate for both God and Country.

The fact that I neglected myself all my life became apparent to me when I met someone who I finally cared about with all my heart. I was not ready to meet her, because I still hadn't found who I truly was. I was lost. I hated my job, my finances, my life, and myself. She, on the other hand, had found herself early in life. She was an outgoing, beautiful, smart, funny, genuinely nice person. I can't fault her for not returning my feelings, because she knew that it would take time for me to get over my past. My past made me sad, and I loved her so much that I shared all that I was with her. Unfortunately, I may have shared too much because I eventually scared her away. I tried to get too close too fast when she wasn't ready. It was my fault. This is my pain that I have to carry around with me. This book is the result of my pain. She inspired me to write like I've never written before. All the feelings that were there for her are in this book. I am so blessed to have met her, because through my pain, I learned,many things. I learned that I could love unconditionally. I loved her so much that I shared all that I was and how I felt at the risk of losing her. I learned to have patience. I learned that time heals all wounds. Most of all, I learned to take care of myself first so I can take care of others later. The only way that I can have someone in my life is if I can confidently say that I am happy with myself and who I am. For this, I thank her from the bottom of my heart. This book is the end of my sorrow. It is my closure. It is the beginning of the rest of my life!

Reforming the Broken Heart of Leadership

Dynamic leaders are created from the inside out. They are those individuals who have discovered that their identity as leaders are found in the integrity of being a child of the creator God, rather than being shaped by their abilities, performances, and successes. This book uncovers the underlying reality of why Christian leaders stray off the path of faithfully living out their calling. Centered in the formative spirituality of Fr. Adrian van Kaam, Dr. Fred Meadows links the many anomalies of leadership to what van Kaam labels as functionalism—a self-sufficient mode of operation, initiated by internal pride that pushes us to define ourselves in terms of our accomplishments … we are what we do! Functionalism blocks our ability to see from a higher perspective and to experience transcendence. By rediscovering the ancient practices of silence, solitude, meditation on the Word (lectio divina), journaling, prayer, and practicing community, pastors, ministry leaders, and laity alike can begin the process of reforming broken leadership. Acknowledging their souls as well as their abilities, leaders are able to renew and reconnect with their calling, and minister out of the overflow of God’s presence, while maintaining a healthy and dynamic inner life that fosters being conformed to the image and life of Jesus Christ.

For twenty years Dan O’Brien struggled to make ends meet on his cattle ranch in South Dakota. But when a neighbor invited him to lend a hand at the annual buffalo roundup, O’Brien was inspired to convert his own ranch, the Broken Heart, to buffalo. Starting with thirteen calves, “short-necked, golden balls of wool,” O’Brien embarked on a journey that returned buffalo to his land for the first time in more than a century and a half. Buffalo for the Broken Heart is at once a tender account of the buffaloes’ first seasons on the ranch and an engaging lesson in wildlife ecology. Whether he’s describing the grazing pattern of the buffalo, the thrill of watching a falcon home in on its prey, or the comical spectacle of a buffalo bull wallowing in the mud, O’Brien combines a novelist’s eye for detail with a naturalist’s understanding to create an enriching, entertaining narrative.

Using the examples of Vioxx, Celebrex, cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, and anti-depressants, Overdosed America shows that at the heart of the current crisis in American medicine lies the commercialization of medical knowledge itself. Drawing on his background in statistics, epidemiology, and health policy, John Abramson, M.D., reveals the ways in which the drug companies have misrepresented statistical evidence, misled doctors, and compromised our health. The good news is that the best scientific evidence shows that reclaiming responsibility for your own health is often far more effective than taking the latest blockbuster drug. You—and your doctor—will be stunned by this unflinching exposé of American medicine.

This collection of poems is a glimpse of a world as seen through the eyes of a person who has questioned the accepted definition of both African American / Native American men and women and how they relate to each other trying to fulfill the broken dreams and their search for identity. Let Me Tell You Who I Am , Chained, On Being Black, express the contradictions American Africans and Native People face as they tract through a world that had denied them equal access and assaults their manhood. Such titles as My Knight in Tarnished Armor, My Man, and A Hole in the Soul, express bruised and broken dreams of women who keep in mind that she must survive. Then there are those images that tell who these American African Natives are and what Americans, refuse to recognize. Such titles as Once Upon A Time When I Was Colored, Dark Faces, and 6 Million, gives the reader a view of images--- dried up dreams--- that impact the lives of disenfranchised human beings. This is the human condition of American African Natives as they try to find their place in a world of constant rejection and turmoil. These Images in Technicolor tell who these Americans really are, and how they refuse to give up when faced with adversity.

America Throne is living the good life in L.A. Her career is sprouting, and she is in love -- with Jasper Husch, a sexy-sultry artist from San Fran. But just as soon as they've realized domestic bliss, Jasper has a change of heart, and America falters on the slippery slope of hope: hoping that he will come back, hoping that new sex will erase all evidence of him, and hoping that in nurturing a truce with her dead father she will make peace with all men. America's trip from self-destruction to wholeness is a romp on the wilder shores of the West Coast. From a dodgy therapist to a silent retreat, America Throne's "aha" moment culminates with, "While we are all busy swimming upstream, the universe is conspiring to take us to something better." In America the Beautiful, Moon Zappa has taken the broken-heart story and given it a twist all her own through the emotional honesty and edginess of America Throne. Hailed as "brilliant" (Sunday Telegraph Magazine), America the Beautiful is the debut of an unforgettable and unfaltering new voice.

Susan Perabo's short-story collection, Who I Was Supposed to Be, was named a Best Book of 1999 by the Los Angeles Times, The Miami Herald, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The Boston Globe proclaimed the debut "a stunning introduction to a fresh new literary talent." Now Susan Perabo returns with The Broken Places, her eagerly anticipated novel about love and honor and how the aftermath of one terrifying night -- and one heroic act -- affects a close-knit family. Twelve-year-old Paul Tucker knows his family is something akin to royalty in small-town Casey, Pennsylvania. His father, Sonny, is a dedicated career fireman, in line for the position of chief, long held by Paul's late grandfather, a local legend whose heroics continue to occupy the hearts and minds of all who knew and worked with him. Paul's mother, Laura, is a math teacher at the high school; Paul is sometimes annoyed by her worries over him (and her apparent lack of worry over his father), but his life is generally untroubled, his future bright, his time measured by sport seasons. But on a windy October day, the collapse of an abandoned farmhouse forever alters the fates and perceptions of Paul, his family, and those closest to them. Sonny and the other Casey firemen attempt a dangerous rescue to reach a teenager buried under the rubble, and when Sonny himself is trapped by a secondary collapse, Paul, his mother, and the crowd of onlookers believe the worst. The wait is excruciating; it's baby Jessica all over again, but this time the "innocent victim" is sixteen-year-old Ian Finch, a swastika-tattooed hoodlum who may have brought the house down on himself while building bombs. Still, when Sonny emerges from the rubble hours later, the maimed teenager in his arms, the rescue becomes a minor miracle and a major public relations event, a validation of all things American and true. Sonny is immediately hailed as a national hero. And Paul's life is suddenly, and irrevocably, changed. Beyond the limelight, the parades, and the intrusion of the national media into a quiet and predictable life, the Tucker household balance is upset. And Ian Finch's curious and continued involvement in Sonny's life creates a new and troubling set of hurdles for Paul to overcome. Somehow, though his father has been saved, he continues to slip through Paul's fingers. Secrets, lies, and changing alliances threaten Paul's relationship with his father and his mother and his understanding of what holds a family -- and a town -- together. The Broken Places is a brilliant meditation on the psychology of heroism, the definition of family, and the true meaning of honor. With pitch-perfect dialogue, subtle but stunning insights, and a dazzling ability to uncork the quiet power of each character, Susan Perabo's The Broken Places uncovers and celebrates the unsettling truths of human nature.
