Buster is a sweet little garbage truck. He can't wait to grow up to be a big truck, just like his father. Buster practices driving and lifting and beeping with his friend, Kitty. There's one small problem. Loud noises frighten Buster. When his father takes him to the truck yard to meet the other vehicles, their air-horn blasts and roaring engines send Buster skidding away to hide. He wants to be big and brave, but how can he work with Daddy and his friends when their loud sounds scare him? Buster feels terrible. When Kitty gets into trouble, little Buster musters up his courage to save her.

The Literature of Waste

Books Description:

Tracing material and metaphoric waste through the Western canon, ranging from Beowulf to Samuel Beckett, Susan Signe Morrison disrupts traditional perceptions of waste to better understand how we theorize, manage, and are implicated in what is discarded and seen as garbage. Engaging a wide range of disciplines, Morrison addresses how the materiality of waste has been sedimented into a variety of toxic metaphors. If scholars can read waste as possessing dynamic agency, how might that change the ethics of refuse-ing and ostracizing wasted humans? A major contribution to the growing field of Waste Studies, this comparative and theoretically innovative book confronts the reader with the ethical urgency present in waste literature itself.

Books Description:

"The Willington Secret" is about the perfect crime. People are being murdered and the "bad guys" have discovered how to dispose of the evidence without a trace. The story, set in the mid 1960's takes place in a small college town of Willington, Georgia, but this story could happen anywhere......even in your home town. What makes this story unique is that people committing the horrible crimes, blend perfectly into the Willington community fabric. The town citizens pass them on the streets, eat at the same restaurants, and belong to the same civic organizations, but suspect nothing. The good people of Willington don't realize that, these highly respected, pillars of the community have perfected a foolproof way to commit the ultimate crime and get away with it! The hero is Josh Novack, a student/athelete, whose only goal in life is to make it through college on an athletic scholarship. As a result of an incredible chain of events, Josh becomes committed and involved in the Willington Secret. Now he faces a deadly dilemma: expose the criminals before he becomes their next victim. The villians, however, are thoroughly entrenched in the town hierarchy. They are model citizens, people of power and and position, thus making Josh Novack's task of revealing their secret insurmountable. Although the story is fiction, the recipe used to erase all evidence that a crime had been committed is not. Take certain circumstances common to any community add some unscrupulous, greedy people, who just happen to be engaged in professions that provide the necessary cover, and the result is the formula for the perfect crime. The scariest part is that it could really happen!

The Illusion of Civil Society

Books Description:

Much has been written about how civil society challenges authoritarian governments and helps lead the way to democratization. These studies show that neoliberal economic policies have harmed many sectors of society, weakening the state and undermining clientelistic relationships that previously provided material benefits to middle- and low-income citizens, who are then motivated to organize coalitions to work for greater social justice and equality. Recognizing this important role played by civil society organizations, Jon Shefner goes further and analyzes the variegated nature of the interests represented in these coalitions, arguing that the differences among civil society actors are at least as important as their similarities in explaining how they function and what success, or lack thereof, they have experienced. Through an ethnographic examination extending over a decade, Shefner tells the story of how a poor community on the urban fringe of Guadalajara mobilized through an organization called the Unión de Colonos Independientes (UCI) to work for economic improvement with the support of Jesuits inspired by liberation theology. Yet Mexico’s successful formal democratic transition, won with the elections in 2000, was followed by the dissolution of the coalition. Neither political access for the urban poor, nor their material well-being, has increased with democratization. The unity and even the concept of civil society has thus turned out to be an illusion.
