America Gives, and America Takes: Alien Cultures and Judicial Systems in Focus By George C. Udeozor
America Gives . . . . And America Takes . . . . is as much a story about the highs and lows of one man’s American Dreams as those of countless others who fled their countries of origin to pursue the promise they were certain to achieve in America.

About the Author
George Udeozor is the unlikely author of this literary marvel which takes the reader on a breath-taking journey through the chilling nightmares of the darkness and evil that may lurk at the edges of the American Dream. Like most success-driven immigrants, the author, after a childhood plagued by civil war and economic hardship, worked his way through High School in Nigeria and College in the United States before launching a career in banking with Barclays Bank of California, Los Angeles. Although successful as a banker, the author could not resist the lure of profit and adventure in the International Business arena. His quick success as a Finance/Defense Consultant and marriage to his beautiful wife, a glamorous Medical Doctor gave the appearance of nothing less than the actualized American dream. In this book, the author tells the story of his plight from one nation to another and the struggles of political power intertwined with culture which appears to be at the base of each judicial system and those in its charge.

After Mandela: The Battle for the Soul of South Africa By Alec RussellSeller: GrammyBooks
When Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress declared victory over the bitter injustice of apartheid, some thought South Africa’s future was assured. But despite Mandela’s mission of reconciliation, rampant inequality remains; race relations are uneasy, violence is endemic and many in the ANC appear to have lost sight of the liberation ideals. With the election in 2009 of Jacob Zuma, a charismatic populist embroiled in scandal, uncertainty over the trajectory of the nation has only intensified.
South Africa now stands at a crossroads, and award-winning journalist Alec Russell draws on his deep knowledge of the country to tell us how it got there and to give us a compelling account, revised and updated for this edition, of the journey from Mandela to Zuma.SKU: n/a
