Creep Out

Creep Out

Are you scared of the dark? Does being in a spooky place make you want to run and hide? Usually, the more you know about something, the less afraid you are apt to be. With that in mind, Creep Out explains the function or purpose of six types of potentially frightening places, demystifying their key features and distinctive elements while introducing famous examples that a reader could encounter in real life-or perhaps explore virtually from behind the safety of a computer screen. A scene-setting diagram closes each book, highlighting some of the elements common to the particular place.

The Civil War

The Civil War

America's Civil War, was a cataclysmic event for a country less than 100 years old. The reasons for war are deep-seated, and the discussion that preceded it was often elegant and persuasive, but the war of words would eventually spin out of control and the shooting war would begin. As the South saws its power and influence begin to slip away, into the hands of the brash and upstart North, its way of life and its entire economy seemed to be at risk. Yet the risk was greater still; it threatened to tear a fragile Union apart that had been created from a diversity of states, in terms of both their history and their culture. Here the roots of the conflict are examined from the political situation before the war to the decision made to wage war on fellow citizens.The Civil War would prove to be the ultimate test for the soldiers who fought and for their country.

Origins of the Civil War, The9781422238820$35.64$24.95

Jonathan Sutherland, Diane Can

The North and the South had evolved in very different ways both economically and politically. In particular, the South's agricultural economy revolved around the institution of slavery. When Abraham Lincoln was elected president in 1860, the victory was seen by the South as the North's attempt to impose its anti-slavery measures on it. This ultimately led to secession when Southern states started to cut their ties with the Union.

Human Rights in Focus

Human Rights in Focus

Do humans have innate rights? World bodies including the United Nations say the answer is unequivocally yes. What do those rights entail? How are they being violated? And what is being done to ensure respect for human rights for marginalized populations? These and other issues are examined in the Human Rights in Focus series. Vivid details and fully documented quotes add insight into these difficult issues. An appendix gives students ideas about how they can get involved.

Human Rights in Focus: Illegal Immigrants9781682822296$42.79$29.95

David M. Haugen

Immigration laws are designed to manage immigrant populations, reassert a nation's boundaries, and help define what it means to be a citizen of a given country-and all of this is meant to be carried out humanely and without discrimination. But some argue that these protections are not enough to guarantee the welfare and human rights of immigrants who enter the country illegally. Those rights, and whether they are being violated, are among the topics examined.

Mass Incarceration9781534500457$55.77$39.04

Rebecca Aldridge

The number of Americans who live behind bars has increased by 550 percent over the last 40 years. This has been the result of aggressive tough-on-crime legislation that had more harmful effects than lawmakers could have foreseen. Experts now see the problem but disagree on the solutions. Does incarceration limit crime, or does it simply feed into a cycle of problems that harm society and create a criminal class? Are sentences and rehabilitation programs that avoid prison time effective? This compelling volume tackles tough questions from many different angles.

Harvey, Sarah N. & Robin Steve

Eight teens are dropped off on a remote west-coast island for a week-long treatment program called INTRO (Into Nature to Renew Ourselves). The story is told by two of them: Alice, whose police-officer mother believes Alice might have a substance-abuse problem, and Caleb, who assaulted his abusive stepfather. They are joined by six other miscreants and three staff: a psychologist, a social worker and an ex-cop. On the first night, one of the girls disappears from her cabin. There is a panicked search of the island, but she is nowhere to be found. The adults seem oddly ineffectual in dealing with the crisis-and then the ex-cop gets sick and dies. The radio has been sabotaged, and there is no way to call for help. When the social worker also becomes ill, the kids decide to take matters into their own hands and track down the killer.
