For military cartoonists the absurdity of war inspires a laugh-or-cry response and provides an endless source of un-funny amusement. Cartoons by hundreds of artists-at-arms from more than a dozen countries and spanning two centuries are included in this study—the first to consider such a broad range of military comics. War and military life are examined through the inside jokes of the men and women who served. The author analyzes themes of culture, hierarchy, enemies and allies, geography, sexuality, combat, and civilian relations and describes how comics function within a community. A number of artists included were known for their work with Disney, Marvel Comics, the New Yorker and Madison Avenue but many lesser known artists are recognized.

An American soldier, Sergeant Abbey “McJack” finds herself recently widowed in the Iraqi war. Her life tour and her original career in aviation cut short. She had lost everything she held dear to her from the love of her life, to her ideals, her faith, and dealing with the world in general. Having no family of her own, her deceased husband’s family already distant and mute, she is advised by a mutual friend and co-worker to take stock of her life and to take a trip abroad in order to find out what she wants to do with her new life. In her travels, she ends up in Ullapool finding the idyllic life much to her liking that she finds starting over much easier than she thought until she meets Gregory McGregor. For Greg, this new and attractive tourist piques his interest, though he is not the only one in the small town to notice her. He finds her weary from her tour of duty in the American-Iraqi war. He first assumes she is on military leave, for she barely talks about the past and keeps to herself on most occasions. In due time, he realizes they may have met before and is reminded of his promise for revenge. For she was the one to cost him nearly his life and for taking his brother’s life, practically rendering his family apart. However, there was one small problem; he had become smitten with her. Did the faes of fate have a sick sense of humor or was God above to blame? Only time would tell, completing its full intricate weave on its circular path.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was created in 2001 to increase funding to tackle three of the world's most devastating diseases. It has approved £14.1 billion for programmes in 150 countries, provided AIDS treatment for 3.3 million people, anti-tuberculosis treatment for 8.6 million people and 230 million insecticide-treated nets for the prevention of malaria. The UK is the Global Fund's third highest donor and Ministers had committed over a year ago to increase funds to it but this money has not yet been delivered nor the amount of the increase confirmed. The Committee is concerned by the delay in delivering funds and is calling for the UK to increase its contribution to the Global Fund significantly - over and above the current £384m pledge for 2012 to 2015 - subject to reform. The Committee says that the G20 meeting in Mexico provides a good opportunity for the UK to announce new funds, but only if conditions are met and UK taxpayers' money is adequately safeguarded. The Global Fund has had a difficult year, with financial problems, corruption scandals and the resignation of its director. Confidence in the Fund was affected with some countries temporarily suspending payments and the Global Fund had to cancel a round of grants totalling some £930m. However, the MPs say that the Global Fund has made good progress under its new management to reform the organisation's structures and financial risk monitoring. In May 2012 the Global Fund announced some £630 million in new funds

Charles Wesley, perhaps best known for his hymns, "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul," was the younger brother of John Wesley and the co-founder and poet-laureate of Methodism. Although he was an important figure in the history of Protestantism, Wesley's personal life was shrouded by a cloak of silence and much of his work went unpublished. In this illuminating reader, John Tyson has collected hymns, sermons, letters, and journal material--many rare and hitherto unknown--to chronicle the life and works of Wesley in his own words. Tyson provides an extensive biographical-theological introduction, and supplements Wesley's collected works with interpretative and introductory notes, creating a definitive account of Wesley's character and contribution to the Methodist heritage.
