The first comprehensive study of Chinese popular music in a Western language. Drawing on extensive interviews with singers, songwriters and critics, as well as cultural, sociological, musical, and textual analysis, the book portrays the disparate ways in which China's state-run popular music industry and burgeoning underground rock music subculture represented by Cui Jian have been instrumental to the cultural and political struggles that culminated in the Tienanmen democracy movement of 1989. It also examines the links between popular music and contemporary debates about cultural identity and modernization, as well as the close connections between rock music, youth culture, and student protest.

Chicago has new resident, a heartless killer with a long and bloody history. When a successful young woman is found dead in her fashionable town home, a red flag goes up in Washington, D.C. The FBI knows an elusive "organized killer" is at work again. The problem is the Feds have only one tenuous lead to assist local police in the manhunt ... a most unlikely place the killer likes to find his victims.Kristen Conner is light as a feather but punches harder than most guys--growing up in a cop's home, being a student of hand-to-hand combat, and not being able to shoot a handgun straight does that. Her life is built on faith and family: she coaches her 7-year-old niece's soccer team, the Snowflakes, when she isn't fighting with her partner, police department brass, and most of all, her glamorous TV news reporter sister--or looking for the man who is terrorizing the women of her city.She's a good cop but she's never faced an adversary like this. From the opening chase scene that leads Kristen to a back alley where a punk with a knife awaits her, to the climactic scene where she goes one-on-one with the hauntingly familiar man who is killing innocent women in her town, Cuts Like a Knife, is loaded with action, humor, and wry introspection through the voice of its irrepressible lead character.

At some point in our lives, we will encounter a life-changing moment when we are forced to question our very existence. For me, it was when I found my thirty-year-old son, for no apparent reason, dead on his bed on an otherwise ordinary Monday morning. I have written this book with the hope that it can help someone else through their own loss and grief. The death of a child, at whatever age, is the most tragic experience for a parent, especially if the death is sudden. It's like a part of our body has been cruelly torn off. We will never get over the death of our child, nor should we have to. Our lives will never be the same. We will think about our child every day for the rest of our lives, and we will continue with a background ache for our child. But I have found out that we can heal from the trauma and the excruciating pain, and we can even laugh again. To heal well, we have to alter our views, our values, our attitudes, and our relationships. Expect that healing is a process which will take time. The first step in the healing process, was for me to learn to forgive and love myself for having outlived my beloved son, and having gone against the expected order of things. It was not my doing, and it was not within my control - It's just life!I had to accept that my son's death can never be undone. And I faced the painful truth that to be born is to die, and that life gave me no choice as to when, how or who died first. Grief is devastatingly painful. It can either leave us with anger and bitterness or can be used as a new awareness to give a realistic perspective and meaning to our lives. Viktor Frankl, in his book, 'Man's Search for Meaning', wrote about his life as a Nazi concentration camp prisoner where he chose to transform his darkest despair into a search for meaning and he said, 'It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.' Our most difficult moments are our best teachers; for it is only when we encounter life-shattering moments, that we can see things as they truly are. But only if we become awakened by the tragedy and pick ourselves up - realising that we ourselves must make the effort to walk the path. 'Opens like a flower, cut it with a knife' is also the title of a song written by my son, Brian, some five years before he died. I came across this song only after he died. When I examined the lyrics, I felt it was almost as if my son, knew that he would have a short life and had left me insights on how to deal with life without him through his song. It helped me understand that although grief cuts deep like a knife and leaves a gaping hole in your heart; it is nonetheless, the very source from which a flower can bloom. It is only when you come to acceptance of your grief that paradoxically, beautiful insights can arise. But this can only happen if we are prepared to delve deeper to investigate the meaning of it all - each for ourselves. I learned through the depths of sadness that before you can know kindness at its deepest levels, you must first understand suffering in its darkest places. Through my most difficult times, I understood the significance of the Triple Gem in my life - the Buddha as the best physician; the Dhamma as medicine; and the Sangha, as mentors for me not just to survive, but to emerge a better person. I only wish I could have gone through this journey without the death of my son but this is the journey that has been thrust upon me, albeit not by choice. Happiness and grief are part of human existence.

The newest book in William Kent Krueger's award-winning Corcoran O'Connor series finds the charismatic private investigator caught in the middle of a racial gang war that's turning picturesque Tamarack County, Minnesota, into a bloody battlefield. When the daughter of a powerful businessman dies as a result of her meth addiction, her father, strong-willed and brutal Buck Reinhardt, vows revenge. His target is the Red Boyz, a gang of Ojibwe youths accused of supplying the girl's fatal drug dose. When the head of the Red Boyz and his wife are murdered in a way that suggests execution, the Ojibwe gang mobilizes, and the citizens of Tamarack County brace themselves for war, white against red. Both sides look to Cork O'Connor, a man of mixed heritage, to uncover the truth behind the murders. A former sheriff, Cork has lived, fought, and nearly died to keep the small-town streets and his family safe from harm. He knows that violence is never a virtue, but he believes that it's sometimes a necessary response to the evil that men do. Racing to find answers before the bloodshed spreads, Cork himself becomes involved in the darkest of deeds. As the unspeakable unfolds in the remote and beautiful place he calls home, Cork is forced to confront the horrific truth: Violence is a beast that cannot be contained. In Red Knife, Krueger gives his readers a vivid picture of racial conflict in small-town America, as well as a sensitive look at the secrets we keep from even those closest to us and the destructive nature of all that is left unsaid between fathers and sons, husbands and wives, friends and lovers.
