June, 1968. America is in a state of turbulence, engulfed in civil unrest and uncertainty. Yet for Whitney Dane - spending the summer of her twenty-second year on Martha's Vineyard - life could not be safer, nor the future more certain. Educated at Wheaton, soon to be married, and the youngest daughter of the patrician Dane family, Whitney has everything she has ever wanted, and is everything her all-powerful and doting father, Charles Dane, wants her to be. But the Vineyard's still waters are disturbed by the appearance of Benjamin Blaine. An underprivileged, yet fiercely ambitious and charismatic young man, Blaine is a force of nature neither Whitney nor her family could have prepared for. As Ben's presence begins to awaken independence within Whitney, it also brings deep-rooted Dane tensions to a dangerous head. And soon Whitney's set-in-stone future becomes far from satisfactory, and her picture-perfect family far from pretty. A sweeping family drama of dark secrets and individual awakenings, set during the most consequential summer of recent American history.

America was certainly the big winner of World War II, being the last major country intact. Euphoria, hubris, and a naive self-confidence became hallmarks of the people. This hubris was dented a bit in the 1950s when scandals erupted around the TV quiz shows that made everyoe feel so smart, and the U-2 spy incident of 1960 that revealed Americans were being lied to by the government. The book argues that these two events began the credibility gap that engulfed the nation later in the 1960s and continues to haunt us to this day. When the War ended, the United States still had its economy, infrastructure and industry intact. Taking up where the British Empire left off, the powerful new America expanded its influence around the globe. Suddenly light years ahead of any competitor, Americans abandoned themselves to a haze of consumerism and entertainment, trusting that they were safe and could not be harmed. The contestants on the big-money quiz shows turned out to be fakes, and the respected TV executives were also revealed to be liars and cheats. Far worse was yet to come. The United States government was caught in a lie regarding the CIA’s U-2 reconnaissance planes overflying the Soviet Union. On the eve of a crucial summit meeting in 1960, the USSR knocked Gary Powers out of the sky, along with plenty of incriminating hardware and data. Moscow delayed revealing what it knew, and Washington spent ten days denying it was a spy plane, then denying that President Eisenhower was aware of it. The world was turning into a very scary place, and soon, American schoolchildren were being taught to duck under their desks if a bomb should strike. Fear began to percolate into the heart of the nation.

The Clems were a family living the American dream until their fifteen-year-old daughter Carren became addicted to Meth. Within two months of first taking the highly addictive drug, Carren had moved out of the family home, spent her entire savings on Meth and resorted to stealing, dealing and prostitution to pay for her habit. Told from both Carren's perspective and from the perspective of her father Ron, Loss of Innocence shares the shocking story of how a middle-class girl growing up in a stable home could get so lost. A former LA police officer, Ron describes how he went back to being a cop to try to rescue his daughter and how he suffered a heart attack in the street when he witnessed Carren selling herself to a drug dealer; Carren shares the events leading up to her first taste of drugs, and her descent into addiction with moving candour and dignity. Carren is now clean and sober, and in this frank, compelling book she and her family prove that there can be life after drug addiction.

Within a fabric of hope and tragedy, promises and betrayals, The Loss of Innocence introduces an epic tale among its three major characters of revenge and greed, war and intrigue, and the struggles between government and religion. The Loss of Innocence explores the effects of childhood psychological trauma and the methods by which different individuals respond in their own unique ways. Joe Horgon, Morthuza the High Priest, and Chardin must each overcome their childhood expectations that become shattered by the choices they make or others make for them. As adults, they will be held responsible for their actions and the effects of these on all those around them. The backdrop for this is the clash of cultures between the simple people of Torkos and the powerful Unified Territories. What begins as a big country seeking to capture and devour a smaller prey, turns into a war between good and evil, between governments and religion in which everyone may end up a loser.

The Loss of Innocence is a book of poetry written by a child, who is a separate and distinct part of the adult. She prefers to be called Anna. She has no voice; her pain, fear, sadness, and loneliness have been buried inside for over fifty years. The Loss of Innocence is extremely personal and difficult for the author to share. Only through the use of poetry is she able to speak and put those feelings into words. This book allows others to share a glimpse inside the soul of the author and to feel what her everyday life is truly like. Hopefully, this will help others who share a similar loss.

Matthew’s Account of the Massacre of the Innocents in Light of its Reception History
Language: en
Pages: 304
Authors: Sung J. Cho
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-10-21 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

Sung Cho addresses the seeming contradiction of Herod the Great's massacre in Matthew 2:16-18, questioning why such a tragedy had to occur, why it was included in the good news of Jesus, and what connection it has to ancient prophecies. In creating a reception history of the Massacre of the Innocents, Cho progresses through two millennia worth of interpretation and depiction to highlight key works for discussion. Beginning with a close reading of Matthew 2:16-18, Cho moves to analyse depictions of the tragedy in the Early Patristic Tradition, from the sixth century to the early modern period, and thus to the present day; complete with an examination of visual interpretations of the massacre. Cho's examination provides a positive step to understanding the depths of human suffering with the help of many diverse perspectives.

Mike Figgis's Loss of Sexual Innocence is a fascinating fusion of stories, dreams, images and music. The film is a meditation on the process of growing up, and the inevitable loss of innocence this entails. The central image is the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden; and as in all of Mike Figgis's work, the focus is upon the passionate and often troublesome nature of relationships between men and women. The film was shot in Italy, Tunisia, and Figgis'snative Newcastle, on the lowest of imaginable budgets. In an introduction to the screenplay, Figgis describes how he brought off this remarkable task.
