Marquis Clay's Vegas Murder Chronicles: Murder By Magic is the first in a series of modern crime and mystery works of fiction that could be plucked from today's news. The main characters of this novel are Jake O'Neil, PI, and Detective Rachel Jackson, Vegas PD Homicide. One-time partners on the police force, when it became known that they were romantically linked, Jake resigned to become a private investigator, allowing them to remain a couple. They now have a very engaging, but sometimes difficult work relationship with Rachel as a homicide detective and Jake as a consultant for the Vegas PD. The first plot twist in this tale occurs when the two attend a show of the world famous magician Kane Marko at the Silver Star Grand. After a series of magical illusions, the body of a women is found in one of his onstage props. Little did they know, this crime was connected to a robbery/kidnapping committed earlier that day...but how?

As every year goes by... ... the number of people able to give a first hand account of day-to-day life in the early part of the last century naturally diminishes. The small but telling detail disappears. Ethel May Elvin was born in 1906; she recalls her father’s account of standing sentry at Queen Victoria’s funeral, the privations and small pleasures of a working-class Edwardian childhood, growing up through the First World War and surviving the Second. Anyone intrigued by the small events of history and how the majority actually lived day-to-day, will find this a unique and fascinating book.

As sectarian and political tensions rose after March of 2005, scholars and journalists began to speculate that Lebanon was heading back into civil war. Much academic literature, in fact showed that the probability of regressing into such a state was very high. Although tensions did escalate and violence broke out on a number of occasions (culminating in several days of fighting in May 2008) the Doha agreement provided a peaceful political solution to the country's crisis. This book offers an answer to the question of why no renewed civil war occurred in Lebanon as well as to the larger question of why civil wars do - or do not - break out. The author accomplishes this by developing and presenting a model of informal elite agreement, which he terms -consociational conflict-."

In early 2011 an elderly Alawite shaykh lamented the long history of oppression and aggression against his people. Against such collective memories the Syrian uprising was viewed by many Alawites, and observers, as a revanchist Sunni Muslim movement and the gravest threat yet to the unorthodox Shi'a sub-sect. This explained why the Alawites largely remained loyal to the Ba'athist regime of Bashar al-Asad. But was Alawite history really a constant tale of oppression and was the Syrian uprising of 2011 really an existential threat to the Alawites? This book surveys Alawite history from the sect's inception in Abbasid Iraq up to the start of the uprising in 2011. The book shows how Alawite identity and political behaviour have been shaped by a cycle of insecurity that has prevented the group from achieving either genuine social integration or long term security. Rather than being the gravest threat yet to the sect, the Syrian uprising, in the context of the Arab Spring, was quite possibly a historic opportunity for the Alawites to finally break free from their cycle of fear.
