Gunnar He has no idea who he is. What he does know is that he was stabbed, shot, and crushed under a wall when his unit was attacked when he was in the Army. Now, he's just trying to find his way. He's fucking angry and tired of dealing with his poor excuse of a life and am doing his best to drown his sorrows in the bottom of a bottle. The pieces of his forgotten life are reappearing and they terrify him more than the uncertain future ahead... Bowen He's a lot of things, but what he's not, is a babysitter. He has his own shit to deal with, let alone take care of a guy who barely knows who he is. Gunnar is his brother's best friend, and Bowen's former lover. So when his brother asks for a favor, he can't say no. What he wasn't expecting was the feelings that started happening when Gunnar needed his help. The vulnerability in his voice tugged at Bowen's heart. Although Gunnar has no memory of who he is, Bowen's getting glimpses of the man he used to be. He's hoping Gunnar will let Bowen help him find himself again. Otherwise, Bowen's afraid he'll be lost forever.

Since the early 1960s, the internationally acclaimed and highly distinguished Swedish geographer Gunnar Olsson has made substantial contributions to his own discipline. In addition, because of the transgressive nature of his work and writing, which often borders to art and philosophy, his ideas and approaches have reached a wider audience of those interested in the history and geography of ideas, culture and human reasoning. Olsson’s recent masterpiece, Abysmal, is a minimalist guide to the territory of Western culture. In it, he investigates how cartographical reason enables people to think about and navigate the abstract world of invisible human relations, in much the same way as they are able to study and traverse the physical Earth by using maps and mapping. This book presents a comprehensive introduction to, and overview of, the entire range of Olsson’s geography from the early days of spatial science to his contemporary engagement with, and critique of, cartographical reasoning. It includes selected samples of Olsson’s own writings, including rarities, together with a consolidated bibliography of his publications. It also contains critical engagements from leading scholars such as Michael Dear, Michael Watts, Chris Philo and Marcus Doel, with Olsson’s geography, from a variety of perspectives, which are particularly valuable to those readers who already know his work. It is structured and written in a way that makes Olsson’s geography accessible to a wide readership, including those who are not already familiar with Olsson’s work.

In this landmark effort to understand African American people in the New World, Gunnar Myrdal provides deep insight into the contradictions of American democracy as well as a study of a people within a people. The title of the book, 'An American Dilemma', refers to the moral contradiction of a nation torn between allegiance to its highest ideals and awareness of the base realities of racial discrimination. The touchstone of this classic is the jarring discrepancy between the American creed of respect for the inalienable rights to freedom, justice, and opportunity for all and the pervasive violations of the dignity of blacks. The appendices are a gold mine of information, theory, and methodology. Indeed, two of the appendices were issued as a separate work given their importance for systematic theory in social research. The new introduction by Sissela Bok offers a remarkably intimate yet rigorously objective appraisal of Myrdal�a social scientist who wanted to see himself as an analytic intellectual, yet had an unbending desire to bring about change. 'An American Dilemma' is testimonial to the man as well as the ideas he espoused. When it first appeared 'An American Dilemma' was called "the most penetrating and important book on contemporary American civilization" by Robert S. Lynd; "One of the best political commentaries on American life that has ever been written" in The American Political Science Review; and a book with "a novelty and a courage seldom found in American discussions either of our total society or of the part which the Negro plays in it" in 'The American Sociological Review'. It is a foundation work for all those concerned with the history and current status of race relations in the United States.

Parents live in perpetual, subconscious fear of losing a child. For Gunnar Skollingsberg, this ultimate nightmare has come true not once, but twice. In his new memoir, Don't Cry, Pappa, he chronicles his journey from devastating, suicidal depression to tentative, fragile healing. Gunnar recounts his own childhood as the emotionally neglected, lonely son of an immigrant family from Norway. Soon after his first marriage ended in divorce, a tragic car accident took the life of his two-year-old son. He eventually remarried and had other children. The death of another child followed his second divorce when his fifteen-year-old daughter drowned on a camping trip. Gunnar struggled with depression throughout his life, and, in the midst of these tragedies, he twice came dangerously close to ending the pain for good. Fortunately, he was able to work through these periods and recover the drive to live beyond his children's deaths. He eventually refocused his life's purpose to bring moments of happiness to other children. While Gunnar knows all too well that the pain of losing a child never truly ends, he hopes his new book, Don't Cry, Pappa, will help other bereaved parents to partially heal.
