Based on the blog and personal journal Hollis Walker wrote during her journey through breast cancer, The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle shows us what living with cancer is really like. While most people may assume the physical aspects of cancer are the worst of it, Walker's real-time writing reveals a relentless and intense parade of emotional and spiritual responses marching beneath the surface: anger, fear, uncertainty, isolation, and threats to identity, self-esteem and faith. During her search for meaning in the midst of this chaos, Walker discovers a secret: we must embrace illness as part of our spiritual journey in order to become the authors of our own healing. With honesty, immediacy and humor, The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle offers inspiration and hope to those facing life-threatening illness and the people who care about them.
The post-Cold War world has seen the emergence of new kinds of security threats. Whilst traditionally security threats were perceived of in terms of military threats against a state, non-traditional security threats are those that pose a threat to various internal competencies of the state and its identity both home and abroad. The European Union and the United States have identified Latin American cocaine trafficking as a security threat, but their policy responses to it have differed. This book examines the ways in which the EU and the US have conceptualized this threat. Furthermore, it explores the impact of cocaine trafficking on four state functions - economic, political, public order and diplomatic - in order to explain why it has become 'securitized'. Appealing to a variety of university courses, this book is especially relevant to security studies and European and US policy analysis, as well as criminology and sociology.
