A Few Good Men is a study and translation of The Inquiry of Ugra (Ugrapariprccha), one of the most influential Mahayana sutras on the bodhisattva path, but also one of the most neglected texts in Western treatments of Buddhism. To achieve a better understanding of the universe of ideas, activities, and institutional structures within which early self-proclaimed bodhisattvas lived, the author first considers the Ugra as a literary document, employing new methodological tools to examine the genre to which it belongs, the age of its extant versions, and their relationships to one another. She goes on to challenge the dominant notions that the Mahayana emerged as a "reform" of earlier Buddhism and offered lay people an "easier option." A Few Good Men will be compelling reading for scholars and practitioners alike and others interested in the history of Indian Buddhism and the formation of Mahayana.

The Son Also Rises . . . On a near future Earth, Good Man does not mean good at all. Instead, the term signifies a member of the ruling class, and what it takes to become a Good Man and to hold onto power is downright evil. Now a conspiracy hundreds of years in the making is about to be brought to light when the imprisoned son of the Good Man of Olympic Seacity escapes from his solitary confinement cell and returns to find his father assassinated. But when Luce Keeva attempts to take hold of the reins of power, he finds that not all is as it seems, that a plot for his own imminent murder is afoot¾and that a worldwide conflagration looms. It is a war of revolution, and a shadowy group known as the Sons of Liberty may prove to be Luce's only ally in a fight to throw off an evil from the past that has enslaved humanity for generations. Sequel to Sarah A. Hoyt's award-winning Darkship Thieves, and Darkship Renegades, this is Book One in the Earth's Revolution saga.

A Few Good Men, Too Many Chemicals is the story of the exposure of U.S. Marines at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, CA, and Camp Lejeune, NC, to organic solvents, benzene, and other carcinogens ingested in their drinking water and through dermal contact and inhalation while working with toxic chemicals without protective clothing and face masks. Thousands of veterans and their families were once stationed at El Toro, an EPA Superfund site and the premier Marine Corps jet fighter base until it closed in July 1999. At Camp Lejeune, another EPA Superfund site, the base wells were contaminated with organic solvents from 1953 to 1987 with an estimated one million people exposed to trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PCE), benzene and other toxic chemicals. Legislation to provide health care for Camp Lejeune, an active military installation, was passed in the 112th Congress. In September 2016, Lejeune veterans were eligible for presumptive VA disability compensation for 8 health conditions that the VA agreed were linked to toxic chemicals in the base's wells. There is no presumptive health care and disability for El Toro Marines. El Toro veterans have to fight for health care and disability one veteran at a time. A Few Good Men, Too Many Chemicals documents the denial of responsibility and the cover-up by Marine Corps leadership of environmental contamination from veterans, their dependents, and the public at El Toro: no usage records on TCE and other organic solvents; El Toro's denial of ownership for 16 years of a major TCE plume spreading for miles into Orange County until a lawsuit forced the government to accept responsibility.

The members of our U.S. Military all have a common core experience: they enter and adapt to a unique society often very different than what they were previously accustomed to. Although the military teaches leadership, honor and valor, they also value career development and supplemental education. What may sometimes come up lagging is emphasis of the importance of morality and spirituality as key elements to success and achievement. If not brought up in an orthodox religion, the necessary knowledge and information may never be acquired or valued. This book takes the principles of 12 Step Spiritual and Moral Recovery programs that are readily available to our civilian society and offers the information to any and all U.S. Military personnel including dependent, retired and veterans who may want or need it. The information is not for the substance addicted nor alcoholic, but rather for those competent and able bodies who are motivated to seek and maintain a moral and spiritual way of life. Many people report that as a result of the practice of the 12 Step Spiritual and Moral Recovery process they have been able to meet difficulties and still enjoy life. They see it as a way to happy and effective living.
