How did Africans become "Blacks" in the Americas? Becoming Free, Becoming Black tells the story of enslaved and free people of color who used the law to claim freedom and citizenship for themselves and their loved ones. Their communities challenged slaveholders' efforts to make Blackness synonymous with slavery. Looking closely at three slave societies - Cuba, Virginia, and Louisiana - Alejandro de la Fuente and Ariela J. Gross demonstrate that the law of freedom - not slavery - established the meaning of Blackness in law.Â Contests over freedom determined whether and how it was possible to move from slave to free status, and whether claims to citizenship would be tied to racial identity. Laws regulating the lives and institutions of free people of color created the boundaries between Black and White, the rights reserved to White people, and the degradations imposed only on Black people.

That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. Heâs saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead. Â Itâs a game Iâm willing to play. Â I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but Iâll be the first to make it out intact. Half-Truths is a stand-alone novel.

Ayahuasca is a powerful tool for transformation, that more and more Westerners are flocking to drink in a quest for greater self-knowledge, healing and reconnection with the natural world. This formerly esoteric, little-known brew is now a growth industry. But why? Ayahuasca is a psychoactive tea that has a long history of ritual use among indigenous groups of the Upper Amazon. Made from the ayahuasca vine and the leaves of a shrub, ayahuasca is associated with healing in collective ceremonies and in more intimate contexts, generally under the direction of specialist - anÂ ayahuasquero. These are experienced practitioners who guide the ceremony and the "drinkers'" experience. Ayahuasca has gained significant popularity these days in cities around the world. Ceremonies happen nightly and Hollywood stars, Wall Street players and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs now drink the brew. Why? What effect might ayahuasca be having on our culture? Could it be the LSD of our time? Does the brew, which seems to inspire environmental action, simplified lifestyles and more communitarian behaviour, act as an antidote to frenzied consumerist culture? InÂ When Plants Dream, PinchbeckÂ and Rokhlin explore the economic, social, political, cultural and environmental impact that ayahuasca is having on society. "Part One" covers the background; what ayahuasca is, where it is found, and its cultural origins. "Part Two" explores the role and practices of theÂ ayahuasqueroÂ in both Amazonian and Western cultures. "Part Three" examines the medicinal plants of the Amazon, looking particularly at the ingredients in ayahuasca and their therapeutic qualities, covering the most up-to-date biomedical research, psychedelic science, and psychopharmacology. "Part Four" looks more closely at how ayahuasca is perceived and used today, covering law, the drug wars, media and money. Lastly, in "Part Five", Pinchbeck and Rokhlin question the future of ayahuasca.Â When Plants DreamÂ is the first book of its kind to look at the science and expanding culture of ayahuasca, from its historical use to its appropriation by the West and the impact it is having on cultures beyond the Amazon.

What I didn't expect was being welcomed by the open arms of a father who had no idea I existed. More importantly, I didn't anticipate her. Delilah Donovan was a breath of fresh air. She would soon become my reason for wanting to become a better man, my reason for getting out of bed with a smile on my normally sneering face. But no matter how much I changed, she'd always be too good for a man like me. It was over before it could even begin. Contains mature themes.

My Thursday afternoon meeting was a no-show. Imagine my surprise when a drenched, flustered brunette slipped into the booth across from me, acting like she was supposed to be there.Â When she slipped back out with a snappy good-bye, I never thought I'd see her again.Â Until I walked into my Friday morning meeting.Â At first, I didn't recognize her - she was dry this time. But from the look on her face, she recognized me. When she gave the worst pitch I've ever sat through, I thought my boss, and mentor, was going to show her the door - except he accepts the proposal and tells me we have to work together.Â I didn't anticipate I would like her, let alone be interested in her. Sure, she was hot and sassy. But something about her rubbed me the wrong way.Â And yet I couldn't stop thinking about her.Â So, when she leaves the room and her phone chimes with a new text, I knew I wasn't supposed to look. I also knew I wasn't supposed to cancel her date for later that evening. And I definitely knew I wasn't supposed to delete the entire exchange, so she had no idea what I'd done.Â But I did. And then I showed up at the restaurant, pretending like this was all a big coincidence. When the date is over, I want more. I need more.Â We start pretend-dating because she needs practice, and I tell myself, New York's most eligible billionaire bachelor, that this is just a bit of fun.Â What could possibly go wrong?

Six years ago, the world was plunged into darkness. Five years ago, it got a second chance. Now, the fight for what's left begins.... They called it the Purge.Â History books call it the Purge, and it altered the course of human history. A breed of seemingly unkillable creatures that once lurked in the shadows of mankind's past finally revealed themselves. Driven by an insatiable lust for human blood, these monsters - dubbed "ghouls" by some - consumed the globe in one bloody, awful night.Â Their numbers growing exponentially through infection, they felled the unprepared governments of the world with hardly any resistance. In the yearlong nightmare that followed, survivors were turned into chattel for the generations of ghouls to come. Most chose to cooperate, but a brave few fought back, and thanks to their sacrifice, the ghouls were defeated and driven back into the darkness.Â Humanity was given a second chance, but the world post-Purge will never be the same. The cities have been abandoned, technology is limited, law and order is nonexistent, and survivors live off the land in small, isolated communities in the countryside. Nightfall is no longer the harbinger of doom it once was, but the night will never be completely terror-free. Though vastly smaller in number and weaker than they've ever been, the ghoul menace lingers.Â But the monsters are now the hunted. Men and women who suffered unimaginable horrors under the yearlong Purge roam the land, seeking out the creatures wherever they hide. They call themselves slayers. They are skilled, dangerous, and they have scores to settle.Â Two strangers on a dangerous road. Wash is a young slayer scouring what's left of America in search of one very specific ghoul. He will find it even if he has to brave hell itself to do so. Ana is a woman who is not what she seems - cunning, smart, and far more capable than she lets on.

Calm and dispassionate, even when the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into nothing but the roaring of the fire. She was locked away where she couldnât bring harm to herself or others. To all involved, they had protected the world from a monster, but sometimes things are not what they seem.Â Due to language and adult situations, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

He's a scribe looking for answers. If only a cagey - and frustratingly attractive - singer will let him help. Summoned to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Rhys of Glast, Irin archivist and scribe of Istanbul, must convince a legendary Irina singer to trust him. His success could shift the balance of power all over the Irin world and give singers an important key to their past. Meera didn't call for Rhys's help, and she doesn't need it. The scribe's mission is to bring more martial magic into the Irin world, while Meera has been looking for a path toward peace. She's convinced that some other motive is at work, and his stubborn arrogance doesn't pass for charm in her hallowed opinion. Discovering ancient Irina magic should be something both scholars can agree on, but can these two rivals find any common ground? Neither Rhys nor Meera can ignore the simmering heat between them, but will attraction overcome the caution that has shaped both their lives? Contains mature themes.
