This dissertation is an interpretive case study that examines alcohol use by a specific subculture of undergraduates, a college fraternity. Based on nearly three years of investigation using interviews, observation, and document analysis, this study takes a detailed look at the organization's indoctrination process and the ways that their practices are explained by its most astute observers, specifically high-status insiders. Various elements of the author's biography are integrated into the text and used to enhance understanding of the phenomenon under investigation. The multiple purposes of this research were to offer a thick description of college student drinking practices, to describe and understand the organization's socialization processes, and, ultimately, to present an analysis of the group using contemporary organizational theory. This work focused on the way that a social fraternity communicates to its newest members the ways of the world with respect to alcohol consumption and its concomitant attitudes, beliefs and behaviors-and what this means in terms of the way the organization functions. A theoretical model of organizations as addictive systems is refined in this study and used as a basis for understanding the organizational dynamics. Implications of this study for institutional and extra-institutional agents who must work with college fraternities are also discussed.

Imagine living a normal life. You race, crash, and wake up to a man called Harold who heals your body, tells you you've been chosen, gives you a scroll, and says your life will never be the same after you open it. And of course, I open it. Obviously he knew I would, and then my whole life gets turned upside down. I've been harassed and attacked. My dog went missing and still hasn't shown up. I was even attacked, with my brother sleeping next to me, and he never saw a thing. Doors are locked before I go to bed and then are mysteriously open in the morning. Now I’m told my new enimies are the fallen Watchers of heaven. If these things didn't happen to me, I wouldn't believe them. And you think you had a bad day!

Maristella Botticini and Zvi Eckstein show that, contrary to previous explanations, this transformation was driven not by anti-Jewish persecution and legal restrictions, but rather by changes within Judaism itself after 70 CE--most importantly, the rise of a new norm that required every Jewish male to read and study the Torah and to send his sons to school. Over the next six centuries, those Jews who found the norms of Judaism too costly to obey converted to other religions, making world Jewry shrink. Later, when urbanization and commercial expansion in the newly established Muslim Caliphates increased the demand for occupations in which literacy was an advantage, the Jews found themselves literate in a world of almost universal illiteracy. From then forward, almost all Jews entered crafts and trade, and many of them began moving in search of business opportunities, creating a worldwide Diaspora in the process.

The never-before-told story of one of the most decorated units in the war in Afghanistan and its fifteen-month ordeal that culminated in the 2008 Battle of Wanat, the war's deadliest A single company of US paratroopers--calling themselves the "Chosen Few"--arrived in eastern Afghanistan in late 2007 hoping to win the hearts and minds of the remote mountain people and extend the Afghan government's reach into this wilderness. Instead, they spent the next fifteen months in a desperate struggle, living under almost continuous attack, forced into a slow and grinding withdrawal, and always outnumbered by Taliban fighters descending on them from all sides. Month after month, rocket-propelled grenades, rockets, and machine-gun fire poured down on the isolated and exposed paratroopers as America's focus and military resources shifted to Iraq. Just weeks before the paratroopers were to go home, they faced their last--and toughest--fight. Near the village of Wanat in Nuristan province, an estimated three hundred enemy fighters surrounded about fifty of the Chosen Few and others defending a partially finished combat base. Nine died and more than two dozen were wounded that day in July 2008, making it arguably the bloodiest battle of the war in Afghanistan. The Chosen Few would return home tempered by war. Two among them would receive the Medal of Honor. All of them would be forever changed.

Veritas vos liberabit – The truth shall set you free! Karl Marx termed religion the “opiate of the masses.” A kind of drug, which most Christians utilize to ease their conscience and induce a “feel good” state of mind. God’s Creation is an attempt to prompt Christians to get off the drug. Not to withdraw from religion but, just the opposite. To withdraw from the complacent, palliative, and conscience easing state of mind of a ‘part-time’ Christian. To replace this false ‘feel good’ religion with a consciously arrived at faith and belief, based upon facts, utilizing a logical, rational, reasoning mind. This book is disturbing and enlightening. It is mind bending and life altering. It is disconcerting, as most will learn what their parents, priests, ministers or rabbis taught them was not necessarily the truth. God’s Creation attempts to motivate the indifferent Christians to utilize their God-given mind to seriously think about what they actually believe and to conduct their lives according to that belief. Jesus warned, “Many are called but few are chosen.” Are you among the chosen few?

"Very few of the titles, whether fiction or non, take a serious analytical look at the "Bible" as a biblical scholar or theologian would. This is where "God's Inferno" differs from the majority. It utilizes logical, rational, reasoning to analyze what that Bible actually says, not what most have been lead to believe. It seriously attacks the present Christian faith as their tenants and doctrines are based on a very faulty interpretation of what the Bible actually says. It maintains, and proves, the god of the Old Testament is not the 'Supreme God', but merely what the Jewish people of Israel pictured their god to be. Naturally, if he is not the Supreme God, then Jesus is not the Son of that Supreme God but may have been the son of that hateful, murderous, vengeful god of the Old Testament. From the founding of Christianity, it traces its impact through the first 1500-1600 years of the Catholic Church, the keepers of the faith during that time. It documents the Crusades, the Inquisitions and the Reformation as well as the many married priests, Popes who fathered children, and under aged leading fathers of the Church. Finally, it attempts to motivate the indifferent Christian to utilize his God given mind to seriously think about what they actually believe and to conduct their lives according to that belief."
