Continuing the saga of The Form Benders, The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing, our hero Ripley finds himself in a new form with new trials to face as he navigates the magical world of the Form Benders. The life-stealing poison from the bite of the Aldrich will threaten to take the life of his mate and beloved Whitemane. A handful of those from the Bender clan, Malador, Oren, Skerrin, and others, will join ranks with Ripley and set out to find the mysterious Kirradar-a legendary tribe living in the high country above his new home, Haven's Rest. Able to shape shift into animals, Ripley is trapped in his new bear form and must traverse the Sierra Nevada Mountain range with his companions in an effort to find the elusive Kirradar. It is rumored these beings possess the ancient knowledge of an antidote that can save Whitemane from certain death. Learning to face his fears head on, Ripley must conquer his terror of heights and make his way through a sinister forest filled with creatures who want to destroy him. Forced to overcome his own weakness, the trial of the Kirradar warriors will demand of him everything he has in an effort to rescue his love and to demonstrate his loyalty to the leader of their tribe. Within the Twisting Tribunal, Ripley will need to dig deep within himself to survive the warrior's way and surmount the test before him. Will he be able to conquer his fear? Will he make it back to Haven's Rest in time to save his mate? Or, will Ripley be forced to live out the rest of his life alone-without Whitemane by his side? As more of the evil plot by Kestler is uncovered, and Remenion disappears, the form benders realize how little they truly know about the FBEF and Kestler herself. It will take a journey into the bowels of the catacombs beneath the streets of Fresno to bring Ripley face-to-face with a friend, an ally, and a betrayal-before he can rest.

Ghazali and the Poetics of Imagination

Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, a Muslim jurist-theologian and polymath who lived from the mid-eleventh to the early twelfth century in present-day Iran, is a figure equivalent in stature to Maimonides in Judaism and Thomas Aquinas in Christianity. He is best known for his work in philosophy, ethics, law, and mysticism. In an engaged re-reading of the ideas of this preeminent Muslim thinker, Ebrahim Moosa argues that Ghazali's work has lasting relevance today as a model for a critical encounter with the Muslim intellectual tradition in a modern and postmodern context. Moosa employs the theme of the threshold, or dihliz, the space from which Ghazali himself engaged the different currents of thought in his day, and proposes that contemporary Muslims who wish to place their own traditions in conversation with modern traditions consider the same vantage point. Moosa argues that by incorporating elements of Islamic theology, neoplatonic mysticism, and Aristotelian philosophy, Ghazali's work epitomizes the idea that the answers to life's complex realities do not reside in a single culture or intellectual tradition. Ghazali's emphasis on poiesis--creativity, imagination, and freedom of thought--provides a sorely needed model for a cosmopolitan intellectual renewal among Muslims, Moosa argues. Such a creative and critical inheritance, he concludes, ought to be heeded by those who seek to cultivate Muslim intellectual traditions in today's tumultuous world.

Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Sixth Edition, features a mix of lightly-edited classic and contemporary cases that stresses current contract doctrine along with the essential lawyering skill of case analysis—how to sift through the facts of the case to discern the prevailing rules and theory. Randy Barnett and Nate Oman’s innovative text introduces each case and provides the historical background of the iconic cases that make the study of contract law engaging. Study Guide questions help students identify salient issues as they read each case. Judicial biographies of each judge provides additional context. Key Features of the New Edition: The 6th Edition has been edited to make it even more modular and therefore easier for professors to select which doctrines to cover. The introductory materials have been shortened to permit a speedier entry to whichever basic doctrine the professor chooses to begin with. A new section on public policy defenses has been added. Recent developments involving arbitration agreements in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AT&T Mobility case are also covered. In addition, roughly a dozen new cases have been substituted, chosen for their interesting facts or their proven pedagogical usefulness. As always, every effort is made to provide students with background materials on the litigation, such as new judicial biographies and excerpts from recently published scholarship dealing with the cases covered. New cases include: Jordan v. Knafel Arnold Porter v. Fuqua Industries Nguyen v. Barnes & Noble Inc. Also, in keeping with the book’s focus on the “classic” cases we have included some iconic cases missing from earlier editions, including: Masterson v. Sine Security Stove & Manfacturing Co. v. American Railway Express Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus Store Lawrence v. Fox Harris v. Watson
