"This book is a must read for any couple contemplating parenthood. It not only points out that giving an across the board trust to an obstetrician is not a good idea, but cautions on how to select one. At no time in their lives will it be more important to be proactive. The giving of drugs is routine, yet no drug is safe, especially for the baby. Drugs and anesthetics are frequently given for the convenience of the doctor. Women are also led to believe that they cannot possibly do this by themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. Rarely are parents warned of the possible harmful effects on the baby. Doctors have a need to be in charge. It is difficult for them to give up the power and control that they are accustomed to in the practice of medicine. However, birth is a natural phenomenon and should not be tampered with. In only two or three percent of the cases is intervention necessary. Hospitals and anesthesiologists also benefit financially from obstetrical intervention, These are not in the best interest of new parents, or their babies. The consequences are huge for a society that is at risk.

He directed military movements from his telegraph office, where Lincoln literally hung out with him ... Now with this worthy complement to the enduring library of biographical accounts of those who helped Lincoln preserve the Union, Stanton honors the indispensable partner of the sixteenth president"--

Murphy schauderte, als er einen der Aufzüge in den Dakota Apartments betrat. Dieses Haus hat eine düstere Aura, dachte er. Er sah die Männer und Frauen an, die sich mit ihm zusammen in die enge Kabine gequetscht hatten. Er schwitzte. Seit drei Wochen wohnte er in Apartment 234 D, 12. Stock. Vorgeblich war er ein ganz normaler Mieter. In Wahrheit war er im Auftrag des Ordens vom Weißen Licht hier, der auch das Apartment für ihn angemietet hatte. Ein blassgesichtiger Mann lockerte die Krawatte und stierte Murphy an. Ein Blick von geradezu beunruhigender Intensität... So dunkle Augen, ging es Murphy durch den Kopf. Wie schwarze Löcher mitten in einem Cluster heller Riesensonnen. Murphy glaubte die Anwesenheit magischer Energien zu spüren. Ganz kurz nur. Diese Empfindung dauerte nicht länger als den Bruchteil einer Sekunde. Irgend etwas stimmt nicht mit diesem Mann, dachte Murphy. Er sah Murphy direkt an, verzog das Gesicht und bleckte die Zähne wie ein Raubtier. Seine Augen!, durchzuckte es Murphy. Im nächsten Moment waren sie vollkommen schwarz. Nichts Weißes war mehr in ihnen zu sehen. Ein dumpfes Knurren drang aus seiner Kehle. Ein Laut, wie man ihn kaum einem menschlichen Wesen zuordnen mochte. In dieses Knurren hinein mischten sich Worte. "NATANETA PARANODOR EYET..."

Lincoln s Autocrat

Edwin M. Stanton (1814-1869), one of the nineteenth century's most impressive legal and political minds, wielded enormous influence and power as Lincoln's Secretary of War during most of the Civil War and under Johnson during the early years of Reconstruction. In the first full biography of Stanton in more than fifty years, William Marvel offers a detailed reexamination of Stanton's life, career, and legacy. Marvel argues that while Stanton was a formidable advocate and politician, his character was hardly benign. Climbing from a difficult youth to the pinnacle of power, Stanton used his authority--and the public coffers--to pursue political vendettas, and he exercised sweeping wartime powers with a cavalier disregard for civil liberties. Though Lincoln's ability to harness a cabinet with sharp divisions and strong personalities is widely celebrated, Marvel suggests that Stanton's tenure raises important questions about Lincoln's actual control over the executive branch. This insightful biography also reveals why men like Ulysses S. Grant considered Stanton a coward and a bully, who was unashamed to use political power for partisan enforcement and personal preservation.
