New Book Release: Secret Societies

Secret Societies: The Complete Guide to Histories, Rites, and Rituals by Nick Redfern

Claims and counter-claims. Accusations and allegations. NSA spying and suppressed evidence. Cover-ups and threats. Documented connections and intrigue. Suggestions of a New World Order. Are we to believe the coincidences are mere chance? Might the paranoid be on to something? Who really holds the levers of power? History admonishes us to be vigilant of hidden plots and nefarious agendas of governments and the powerful.

Shedding light onto sometimes sinister and coercive groups, Secret Societies: The Complete Guide to Histories, Rites, and Rituals is packed with details on nearly 200 organizations, their histories, found members, backgrounds, and suspected conspiracies. It uncovers and examines the hidden, overlooked, and buried history of some of the most notorious groups, including the Illuminati, the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, World Bankers, the Secret Government, and extraterrestrial invaders, to name a few.

Tracing the chilling and corrosive affects of powerful cliques and their plots, it exposes their deep reach into the operations of today's world. Providing gripping details, presenting the facts, and letting the reader decide, this revealing work probes the hidden agendas and agreements of secret cabals and associations. Along the way, it debunks myths and presents the evidence on an invisible world of influence and power.

New Book Release: Advancing the Rule of Law

Advancing the Rule of Law: A Century of Excellence at Emory Law by Michele Marrill

Advancing the Rule of Law is a celebration of an institution that helped elevate the legal profession through the ethics, insights, and achievements of its faculty, staff, alumni, and students. From its prescient founders, who declared that whatever the number of lawyers in the region, “the demand for properly trained lawyers continues [to be] under-supplied,” to Dean Ben Johnson Jr. 40L, who believed that Emory Law could not achieve greatness without fighting against segregation, the history of Emory Law is one of bold vision and even bolder action.
            This centennial book recounts that history, while providing a rich profile of the school today. Emory Law students argue cases in simulated courtrooms as part of a trial techniques program that has become a model for the nation. They propose ways to achieve power-sharing in Syria and draft arguments opposing U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission rules on spent nuclear fuel. Professors develop new avenues of legal thought and challenge students to address some of the most intractable problems of the day: societal inequality, cyberwarfare, gun violence, armed conflict, and threats to human rights.

New Book Release: Breaking From the Past

Breaking From the Past by Diana DeRicci

Is Kyle willing to risk his heart to save the ranch he called home?

Kyle Steppen’s life has gone to hell. Betrayed by his employer, he’s left holding the emotional shards of his soul as well as the few remaining strings to a failing ranch that has been home for more than seven years and he’s running out of time to save it before the tax man comes for his due.

Expecting a woman on his doorstep to help unravel the financial quagmire, he’s completely cut off at the knees by Adrian Balderas, a brilliant financial mind and a rapier wit to go with it inside one of the most beautiful and delicious-looking men he’s ever set his eyes upon.

Kyle is broken and broke. He’s not putting his hopes into any one wish, not salvaging his home, and he can’t even think about his heart.

Or can he?

New Book Release: For the Record

For the Record -- The Unique Success Story of the GSCCCA

The Georgia Superior Courts Clerks’ Cooperative Authority is one of the most unique state organizations in America. While other states provide some of the same services, Georgia was the first state to offer as many services through one online portal—property tax records, deeds, notary documents, and much more—and at no cost to the taxpayers. From the beginning it was the determination of a handful of Superior Court clerks to convince every other colleague in Georgia to sign on to a new way of doing things—no easy task with 159 different offices. County by county, the organizers trooped around the state, showing the clerks that not only would they become more efficient, but that they would neither cede control of their vital documents nor lose any revenue. The task for our writer was to bring to life a difficult and complicated legislative story, showing the personalities, will, and ingenuity of the GSCCCA officers, employees, and county court clerks.
