Civil Society Exposed

This book examines the debate on the relevance of the concept of civil society to social and political change and the role its most well-known agents, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), play in promoting emancipatory projects. The author analyzes the empirical case of Egyptian "civil society" in order to ascertain whether the experience of civil society organizations, and of NGOs in particular, validates the contention prevalent in academic and policy circles that civil society is the main engine for social and political transformation. The author concludes that civil society, far from constituting this engine, is a politically contested terrain characterized by authoritarian and repressive tendencies.

A Collection of Poems

Who are we? Where do we come from? What is our purpose? These questions have been asked throughout our existence. Ever since the first campfire was lit, we have asked ourselves if we could do better. And we have wondered what lies in the future. Exposed is a collection of poetry written by John McCarthy, first as therapy and then as an outlet for a vast expanse of emotions. His perspective has been shaped by thirty years of police and investigation experience and by being an avid hunter and nature enthusiast. This collection is the culmination of a four-year journey that begins with despair over a broken marriage and ends in redemption. It’s an honest reflection of life’s experiences and of a search for a higher calling. This poetic journey begins with “Something’s Wrong,” in which two strangers in a long marriage pass each other as life goes by. They know everything about each other, but they do not really know the things that matter—particularly how to say the things that need to be said. The author’s melancholy path takes us through periods of reflection and self-pity, but it closes on a note of hopefulness. Exposed reveals the poet’s enlightenment and purpose—his love of the mountains and the sea, and inspiration passing through old, lonely country towns that time has forgotten. Experience the world through McCarthy’s eyes and words: the tragic, the sadness, the lonely, the joy, the redemption, and the beauty.

Exposed: A Real Life in Real Words began as a small project for author Annette Russell’s family and friends, but it became a collection of poems telling her life story. She wants them to know where she is in life and who she is; she wants them to understand her. She chronicles her ups and downs in her walk with God, and she explores her feelings and her personal experiences. She describes how she strayed in her walk with God; she felt lost and alone, and the farther she strayed, the more she wrote. Her collection took on a life of its own, and the words began to set her free. The poems began to heal her by allowing her to “see” things—buried things, painful things, everything! Exposed is a blunt and heartfelt collection of poems that invites you into the heart and mind of a woman trying to find her way in life. Untitled He’s here, I know he’s here ... he’s everywhere. He sees, I know he sees ... he sees everything. He hears me, I know he hears me ... he hears everyone. He knows what I need, I know he does ... he knows everything. He’s in control, but I think that I am! He loves me ... but I don’t always believe that. He’s using me ... but I can’t perceive that. He’s working on me ... but I don’t deserve that. He’s waiting for me ... but I can’t find my way back. He’s in control, but I think that I am!
