Since 1968, the name of motion picture director George Romero has been synonymous with the living dead. His landmark film Night of the Living Dead formed the paradigm of modern zombie cinema; often cited as a metaphor for America during the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement, the film used the tenets of the drive-in horror movie genre to engage the sociophobics of late–1960s culture. Subsequently Romero has created five more zombie films, and other directors, including Tom Savini and Zack Snyder, have remade Romero’s movies. This survey of those remakes examines ways in which the sociocultural contexts of different time periods are reflected by changes to the narrative (and the zombies) of Romero’s original versions.

China's party-run courts have one of the highest conviction rates in the world, with forced confessions remaining a central feature. Despite recent prohibitions on evidence obtained through coercion or torture, forced confessions continue to undermine the Chinese judicial system. Recounting some harrowing cases of wrongful conviction, acclaimed legal scholar and novelist He Jiahong analyzes many problems in China's justice system. In one such case, Teng Xingshan was convicted in 1988 and later executed for murdering his mistress, but almost six years later it was discovered that the supposed victim, Shi Xiaorong, was still alive. In 2005, Teng's children submitted a complaint to the Hunan High People's Court, which then issued a revised judgment. In another case, She Xianglin was convicted of murdering his wife in 1994 and was sentenced to death, but this sentence was later commuted to fifteen years' imprisonment. In 2005, She's wife, presumed dead for over eleven years, "returned to life"; She was released from prison two weeks later, retried and found not guilty. With riveting examples, the author surveys the organization and procedure of criminal investigation, the lawyering system for criminal defense, the public prosecution system, trial proceedings, as well as criminal punishments and appeals. In doing so, He highlights the frequent causes of wrongful convictions: investigators working from forced confessions to evidence; improperly tight deadlines for solving criminal cases; prejudicial collection of evidence; misinterpretation of scientific evidence; continued use of torture to extract confessions; bowing to public opinion; nominal checks among the police, prosecutors and the courts; the dysfunction of courtroom trials; unlawfully extended custody with tunnel vision; and reduced sentencing in cases of doubt. The author also provides updated information about recent changes and reforms as well as the many continuing challenges of the criminal justice system in China.

Christians are not above fear, guilt, and grief. Whenever we are faced with fear and grief, we can sometimes take matters into our own hands and use man’s knowledge and wisdom to control things. When this occurs, we can find ourselves leaning on our own understanding and not on faith. Tom Nottingham allows the fear of losing his business to become his priority, resulting in the neglect of his family. Following a dreadful accident where his family dies, he is weighed down by grief and guilt until it consumes his energy. He goes deep into his grief, slips into a self-made cocoon of depression, loses touch with his emotions, and is no longer stirred by anything. He becomes like a dead man walking. When Robert Montgomery, a Good Samaritan, comes into the situation, it is a challenge for him to breach Tom’s cocoon. Through some divinely appointed circumstances, Robert receives wisdom regarding how to break through to Tom. Along with a cast of characters all working to help Tom, God is enabled to do an incredible work of healing as he did with King Nebuchadnezzar!

A detective working for the ultraexclusive Hollywood Security Agency, Elliott spends his days and nights helping the stars keep their private lives private.

With a style reminiscent of early David Morell and Stephen Hunter, in Bringing Back the Dead, Joe Domenici presents a classic tale of military honor pushed to its outer extreme, and the clash that inevitably occurs when those who use violence to corrupt, meet those who use it to protect. Newly retired from the U.S. Army Special Forces, and settling into a quiet retirement in the American Southwest, Ted Hickman thought he'd seen his last battle. Then he picked up the phone... After the horrors of Vietnam, for Larry Yoder, the study of theology made the world make sense again. Until his work as a Pastor took him to Belle Glade, Florida. A town built on dark secrets, and run by an old boy network bent on keeping them buried. Two qualities that made Yoder's devotion to faith and honesty dangerous. And although you won't hear it from the local cops, maybe had something to do with his sudden disappearence. Except, Yoder knows a few people whose loyalty lies outside Belle Glade's channels of power. Like Ted Hickman. Long ago, as a special forces commander in Vietnam, Hickman made a pledge to defend Yoder's life at any cost. So when Hickman gets the call that Yoder is missing, it doesn't take much convincing to get him and some of the old Vietnam "A" team on the first plane to Belle Glade. A place, located dead in the center of the Florida Everglades, where men with skills honed in the jungles of Southeast Asia might prove useful in getting some answers...

The world famous story of Major Bertram Bert Bank who survived 33 months of prison, torture and starvation at the hands of the Japanese in the Philippines during the Second World War. “He left us to go into service in 1941 and he was called up from inactive status on his reserve commission. “From the time he left us until he came back this year, Bert went through a lot that many other men did not survive. He was taken prisoner of the Japs on Bataan, survived the Bataan March of Death and 33 months internment in a Jap prison camp. Now he’s a patient at Valley Forge General Hospital where Army doctors are attempting to restore his sight to normal. The long, gruelling months on a meager diet took its toll. “But Bert doesn’t complain. “There are a lot of other fellows less fortunate than I,” he will tell you. “Many friends have asked him to tell of his experiences. During the course of bond tours and other public appearances in the Army’s behalf, Bert has recounted these experiences. And so he thought he would write them down for these friends. That’s the reason for this booklet. “The story of his capture and internment are here in Bert’s own words. He is the man identified as the Captain Bert of Alabama in the late Lieutenant Colonel Edward Dyess’ story “The March of Death.” Bert was scheduled to make a break from the Jap prison camp with Colonel Dyess but was sick at the time and could not make it. “So this is the story of Major Bert Bank, a native Tuscaloosan and graduate of the University of Alabama. He’s one of the men who came back from the “living dead.””

In this totally unforgettable sixth book in the Savage Destiny series, a relentless wave of frontier progress forces itself into the lives of Zeke and Abbie Monroe, threatening their many years of abiding love and forcing a separation unlike any other they have experienced.

Meet the New Dawn is a keenly powerful and poignant story about the last years of Zeke and Abbie Monroe’s life together, and how their love and their passion for each other lingers on into their twilight years as proof that age and the challenges of life cannot dim the love these two share, a love that causes a man and woman to see each other only as the fifteen-year-old girl who once touched a savage older man’s hand over a campfire, a touch that changed both their lives forever.

After being accused of murder and chased across the county – and killed – by a team charged with hunting down rogue Wardens, Joanne’s human life is over. Reborn into Djinnhood, she has to master her enhanced powers whilst trying to avoid being ‘claimed’ by a human. With the help of a hot supernatural lover, things are looking bright – until they go wrong. There’s trouble brewing, and it’s not confined to River City...or to the Wardens.
