" Today, Thomas Dixon is perhaps best known as the author of the best-selling early twentieth-century trilogy that included the novel The Clansman (1905), which provided the core narrative for D.W. Griffith's groundbreaking and still-controversial film The Birth of a Nation . It was The Sins of the Father , however, that Dixon regarded as the most aesthetically satisfying child of his Ku Klux Klan saga. In this novel he telescopes the trilogy's sprawling historical canvas into one tightly scripted narrative. A best-seller in 1912, the novel's themes of interracial sex and incest outraged many upon its publication. Nearly a century later, Dixon's work is undergoing a critical reevaluation. A new introduction by Steven Weisenburger lends a valuable historical and critical perspective to this important and divisive classic of American literature. Thomas Dixon (1864-1946) was born in Shelby, North Carolina. He is also the author of The Clansman and The Flaming Sword. Steven Weisenburger, Mossiker Chair in Humanities at Southern Methodist University, is the author of several books, including Modern Medea: A Family Story of Slavery and Child- murder from the Old South.

New York, 1939. Tom Bradshaw is arrested for first degree murder. He stands accused of killing his brother. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Tom has little choice but to accept his assurance of a lighter sentence. After Tom is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence would be to reveal his true identity – something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves. Meanwhile, the young woman in question travels to New York, leaving their son behind in England, having decided she'll do whatever it takes to find the man she was to marry – unwilling to believe that he died at sea. The only proof she has is a letter. A letter that has remained unopened on a mantelpiece in Bristol for over a year. Jeffrey Archer continues the saga of The Clifton Chronicles with this epic second novel in the series, The Sins of the Father. Family loyalties are stretched to their limits as secrets unravel, and the story moves from the backstreets of Bristol to the boardrooms of Manhattan.

The questions surrounding how the Irish economy was brought to the brink—who was to blame, and who should pay for these mistakes—have been rightly debated at length. But beyond this very legitimate exercise, there are deeper questions that need to be answered. These questions relate to why we made the decisions we did, not just in the last 10 years, but over the last 80. How did certain industries become prominent at the expense of others, banking as opposed to fisheries, international markets as opposed to indigenous industry and job creation? Are our problems structural in nature, and most importantly, what do we need to know to make sure that this crisis does not happen again? This book looks at the development of the Irish economy over the past eight decades, and argues that the 2008 financial crisis, up to and including the IMF bailout of 2010 and the subsequent change of government, cannot be explained simply by the moral failings of those in banking or property development alone. The problems are deeper, more intricate, and more dangerous if we remain unaware of them, but also potentially avoidable in the future if we break the cycle.

Sins of the Father is the story of three families drawn together by the common bond of childhood abuse and crisis. It is their struggle to save their children and also through their pain, help other families prevent this devastating plague of sexual predation. Sitting in a "Teens in Crisis" support group for parents with children involved in crisis behaviors; recent stories from parents have all been the same: Children as young as 10 years of age abusing drugs, alcohol, involved in aberrant sexual practices, and participating in criminal behavior that is beyond imagination. For each of us, over the years, mentoring families has become our passion: Helping parents understand the gravity of their children's behavior and how perilous their children's actions can be. Providing resources that facilitate their children receiving help, and of course, helping the parents understand the inevitable question - 'How could this happen to us?' The room is filled with parents, each with their own memory of their children's choice to give up on life; each feeling the pain and confusion of these new parents. One member of the group steps forward and shares how his father had been sexually abused when he was only ten. His father had not been able to receive counseling or help resulting in a lifetime of broken relationships, pain, and confusion. He relates how his father chose to leave his family for fear of abusing his own son. Another parent shares having been molested by a babysitter, and yet another shared being raped by an older predator. Following these stories, each member of the group shared their experiences about what is needed to live a successful life: A life without fear, shame, or regret. This is their story. This is our story. Read with an open heart.
