Memoir – Lori’s Song

Lori’s Song
Author: Lori Foroozandeh
Publisher: Outskirts Press
ISBN: 9781432738297
Pages: 244

Lori lived her young years as a victim of abuse. As she grew older she fell into a classic pattern of self-destructiveness. But by the time she was twenty-seven, she was doing her utmost to create a sane life.

Mohammad Foroozandeh seemed like a man she could trust, a man who would care for her and respect her. Though she knew he engaged in drug use, she ignored the warning signs and married him. Two years later, he asked her to move to Iran, promising that she could pursue her career, assuring her that the country was quite modern. For four years, Lori adjusted as best she could to the oppressive customs of the land, but as her husband grew more demanding of her, he also became more violent.

After the World Trade Center bombings, Mohammad told her they must leave Iran. He purchased bus tickets that he said would take them out of the country and eventually to America. But before they could escape, armed guards attacked and kidnapped her. Lori was blindfolded and taken to a paramilitary POW camp somewhere in the hills.

Then the nightmare began…. six weeks of horrific beatings, raping, torture, and starvation.

Social Science – Taming the Violence of Faith

Taming the Violence of Faith: Win-Win Solutions for Our World in Crisis
Jay Stuart Snelson
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1453717202
Published: July 2012
Pages: 480

Throughout history, human beings have sought dominance over one another according to a win-lose worldview – to win, the other party must lose. According to author Snelson, another form of conflict resolution is not just possible but necessary to avoid ultimate destruction. Based on the understanding that cultural paradigms, not human nature, are responsible for our ongoing faith-based conflicts, Snelson offers an analysis of these paradigms and how to shift them. Not content with abstract theorizing disconnected from evidence, he builds his Science of Social Causation model on scientific epistemology and seeks to present a well-reasoned and practicable method.
