Détails: “An elegiac yet exuberant new memoir” (The New York Times Book Review)—Bill Walton’s New York Times bestselling memoir about his recovery from debilitating physical injury and how lessons from John Wooden at UCLA (and the music of the Grateful Dead) have inspired his darkest hours. In February 2008, Bill Walton suffered a spinal collapse so devastating he was unable to get up. It was the culmination of a lifetime of injury. Although Walton had played fourteen seasons in the NBA, he actually missed more games than he played during those years due to injury. From the time of his spinal collapse until his eventual recovery, he spent most of three years flat on the ground. The pain was excruciating, and he thought seriously about killing himself. But he survived, and Back from the Dead is the story of his injury and recovery, set in the context of his amazing athletic career. Walton grew up in southern California in the 1950s and was deeply influenced by the political and cultural upheavals of the 1960s. Although Walton identified strongly with the counterculture, especially in music, the greatest influence on him outside his family was Coach John Wooden, a thoughtful, precise mentor who seemed immune to the turmoil of the times. The two men would speak every day for forty-three years until Wooden’s death at age ninety-nine. John Wooden once said that no greatness ever came without sacrifice. In this “frequently stirring memoir…Walton’s love for life and the people and things in it—including his college coach, John Wooden—is infectious. You can’t stop reading, or rooting for the man” (Publishers Weekly). Back from the Dead shares his dramatic story, including his basketball and broadcasting careers, his many setbacks and rebounds, and his ultimate triumph as the toughest of champions. “[Walton] scores another basket—a deeply personal one.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Détails: 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.

Détails: It is March 2009 as a Jewish father opens his car door in a toy store parking lot and feels cold, hard metal against the back of his head. After David Hirsh turns, he looks his assassin in the eyes and begs for his life. But before he can finish, he feels a burning sensation in his chest and everything turns dark. Now, he helplessly watches from the after-life as his family receives the horrifying news of his murder. After his assassin is killed by police and buried in an unmarked grave, his soul does not depart his body, but instead becomes embedded in his corpse. As his body liquefies into a dark puddle, it flows slowly toward an inferno where all damned souls are tortured and kept for an eternity. Meanwhile as David drifts between Earth and paradise, he meets other transitioning souls and finds the ability to comfort his daughter. When he finally begins his journey into the world of light, he has no idea of the rebirth that is in store for him. In this unique tale about the human experience, two men’s lives intertwine during a violent encounter, leading each to take different journeys through the after-life where separate destinies await.

Détails: 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!

Détails: Growing up as a freak of nature is what Delbert Simpson was called by the town’s people. Delbert’s face was horribly disfigured and one shoulder was higher than the other and his brain never fully developed beyond that of an eight year old. Delbert had no girlfriend or any kind of friends, so he was a loner and the only time he felt safe to be out in public was after midnight when everyone in town was asleep. That way he knew he wouldn’t have to listen to their humiliating remarks. Then one windy night as Delbert was doing his nightly walk, a truck full of teenagers pulled up alongside of him and started taunting him and throwing trash at him. Delbert mumbled in a low tone of voice, “Leave me alone.” The teenagers just laughed and stopped the vehicle. They jumped out of the back of the bed of the truck and started pushing him and calling him names. Delbert started to cry just like a little boy would for his mommy. That just made the teenagers taunt him even more until poor Delbert fell to the ground in a fetal position trying his best to protect himself, and wondering why these teenagers would want to harm him.

Détails: 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.

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...

Détails: In April 1994, the body of an unidentified woman is found in a local village pond. Suspicion falls on She Xianglin, the husband of a local woman reported missing months earlier. With such a high profile case in the balance and no other suspects, the police focus on the one thing that can clinch the case: a confession. She Xianglin is detained, convicted and imprisoned, and the case is closed with swift justice. But eleven years later when a mysterious woman claiming to be the wife of She Xianglin reappears, she sets into motion a series of events truly stranger than fiction. Back from the Dead tells the fascinating story of one of China's most notorious wrongful conviction cases. Well-written and engaging, the reader learns not just about the She Xianglin case, but about the Chinese legal system and Chinese culture as well. The lessons from the She Xianglin case—regarding police tunnel vision, the problems of false confessions, and how politics can affect justice—ring true not just in China, but in every legal system around the world. A must read for anyone interested in criminal justice and comparative law.' Mark Godsey Director, Rosenthal Institute for Justice/Ohio Innocence Project. Back from the Dead is both an intriguing tale of murder and a fascinating insight into the workings of China's criminal justice system. It serves as a vital reminder of the importance of safeguarding suspect rights. It is powerfully optimistic and life-affirming & bizarrely so!' Amber Marks, author of Headspace. 'Professor He Jiahong has provided us with a meticulously detailed account of both the legal and factual aspects of the wrongful detention, conviction and imprisonment of She Xianglin for a murder he did not commit. This was one of the infamous cases of miscarriage of justice where popular outrage forced a reconsideration of the administration of criminal justice in China, in particular the use of capital punishment. But, this story does much more than recite the terrible wrong done to an innocent man. Professor He's account of this case reminds us of the very human dimensions of the lives of people caught up in this case and in other cases like it. It brings home to us the many differing ways miscarriages of justice damage, even destroy, the lives of all those involved. Far from concluding that such a case is extraordinary, we are ultimately left with the very uncomfortable sense of how ordinary it might be for such miscarriages of justice to be produced by China's criminal justice system where incentives and pressures to 'solve' such cases are strong and institutional checks and balances are weak.' Sarah Biddulph Professor and Associate Director (China), Asian Law Centre, Melbourne Law School, The University of Melbourne

Détails: It was a horrific car crash. On the way home from swim practice, eighteen-year old Brian Boyle’s future changed in an instant when a dump truck plowed into his Camaro. He was airlifted to a shock-trauma hospital. He had lost sixty percent of his blood, his heart had moved across his chest, and his organs and pelvis were pulverized. He was placed in a medically-induced coma. When Brian finally emerged from the coma two months later, he had no memory of the accident. He could see and hear, but not move or talk. Unable to communicate to his doctors, nurses, or frantic parents, he heard words like “vegetable” and “nursing home.” If he lived, doctors predicted he might not be able to walk again, and certainly not swim. Then, miraculously, Brian clawed his way back to the living. First blinking his eyelids, then squeezing a hand, then smiling, he gradually emerged from his locked-in state. The former swimmer and bodybuilder had lost one hundred pounds. Iron Heart is the first-person account of his ordeal and his miraculous comeback. With enormous fortitude he learned to walk, then run, and eventually, to swim. With his dream of competing in the Ironman Triathlon spurring him on, Brian defied all odds, and three-and-a-half years after his accident, crossed the finish line in Kona, Hawaii. Brian’s inspiring journey from coma to Kona is brought to life in this memoir.
