Five-year-old Joaquin isn't supposed to know anything about the world outside the protected environment where he has been reared. His mother is determined to insulate him from the clashes that took his father's life. But then his father's adoptive parent [note: ADOPTIVE parent, not an ADOPTED parent], Abdullah, enters his life. Later, Joaquin learns that his brilliant geography and history tutor, Senor De Guzman, is a converso; many conversos were Jews who were forcibly converted to Christianity. Joaquin discovers that the world he lives in is unsafe for anyone who is different. As time passes, Joaquin finds himself caught between faiths-the very fate that his mother feared, because the Inquisition does not tolerate dissension. Set in Spain starting at 1505 and continues as Joaquin matures, STOLEN FAITH is the sequel to STOLEN PEACE."

Tim Richmond was, fellow NASCAR driver Kyle Petty said, "a stranger in time." In one regard, the flashy, flamboyant driver from Ashland, Ohio, was years ahead of the trends in a sport that would soon enjoy explosive growth in popularity. Women who were NASCAR fans loved him - and so did their husbands and boyfriends. Richmond believed he could use his stardom in racing as a springboard to a second career as an actor, and he had the Hollywood good looks to make that a realistic dream. At the same time, Richmond was also a throwback.
He pushed his race cars hard, too hard at times, driving every lap like he was hauling moonshine through the mountains of the Carolinas with a revenuer on his rear bumper. Those who saw him drive still compare him to veterans like Curtis Turner and Joe Weatherly, who ran as hard off the track as they did off of it.

Political theorists have long been frustrated by Nietzsche's work. Although he develops profound critiques of morality, culture, and religion, it is very difficult to spell out the precise political implications of his insights. He himself never did so in any systematic way. In this book, Tamsin Shaw claims that there is a reason for this: Nietzsche's insights entail a distinctive form of political skepticism. Shaw argues that the modern political predicament, for Nietzsche, is shaped by two important historical phenomena.
The first is secularization, or the erosion of religious belief, and the fragmentation of moral life that it entails. The second is the unparalleled ideological power of the modern state. The promotion of Nietzsche's own values, Shaw insists, requires resistance to state ideology. But Nietzsche cannot envisage how these values might themselves provide a stable basis for political authority; this is because secular societies, lacking recognized normative expertise, also lack a reliable mechanism for making moral insight politically effective. In grappling with this predicament, Shaw claims, Nietzsche raises profound questions about political legitimacy and political authority in the modern world.
