My Humboldt Diary: A True Story of Betrayal of the Public Trust exposes the web of government and corporate corruption that occurred at the Humboldt Bay Nuclear Power Plant, the blatant disregard for employee and public safety, the cover-ups of numerous violations of radiation safety control standards and procedures, and the ruthless means used by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) for dealing with those who refused to go along in order to get along in the nuclear workplace. My Humboldt Diary provides much more than just a peek into the inner workings of America's nuclear juggernaut; it provides a rare inside view of the imprudent commitment by corporate America and government to promote and protect a failed and dangerous technology. What happened in the sixties and early seventies at PG&E's Humboldt Bay Nuclear Power Plant still plagues America today. A PG&E public relations specialist referred to it all as "Happening back in the Stone Age" and therefore, "not worth talking about any more." Bob Rowen's Humboldt Diary explains why nothing could be further from the truth! Notwithstanding the swapping of the AEC for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), My Humboldt Diary reveals the need for much stricter regulation and oversight of the nuclear industry and argues this is not actually possible in America's free enterprise, democratic society that has the "best government" corporate money can buy. My Humboldt Diary reveals the cozy relationship that exists between government and private enterprise, between the regulators and the regulated; and between PG&E, whose primary motivation was based on the bottom-line, corporate greed principle and Local Union 1245 of the IBEW, whose primary motivation was not to protect the atomic workers but rather was based on the greater-good-membership principle -- Rowen's Diary explains why. Through the use of a multitude of real life and thoroughly documented examples, My Humboldt Diary provides a detailed accounting of the corruption in the nuclear community, which is not unlike America's financial communities of Wall Street, the oil industry in the Gulf, and America's pharmaceutical industry, to name a few; all of which reflect the many abuses that have occurred throughout the history of corporate America. My Humboldt Diary reveals the dynamics of "corporate workplace emulation" that underlies and makes possible the perpetual nature of America's corporate culture. In Mr. Rowen's own words: "When I hear people in Washington talking about nuclear energy as a viable source of energy to deal with our ever-increasing energy needs, it runs chills up and down my spine." The reading of Rowen's Humboldt Diary explains why! Chapter titles include: The First Nuclear Flagship, Reactor Water & Radiation Sponges, Off-gas Samples and Management Prerogatives, A Myriad of Betrayals, Police Brutality, Spent Fuel Shipping Cask, G&R Metals, "Chinese Fallout," Air Sample Monitor at the School, The Infamous PG&E Safety Meeting, PG&E's Conspiracy, The Police Report, The Incredible AEC Whitewash, Convoluted Litigation, Nuclear Censorship & The Don Widener Story, Silencing the Critics of Nuclear Power, Humboldt Hill: An Untold Story, and a heartfelt Epilogue.

School Corruption: Betrayal of Children and the Public Trust is an exposé of corruption in public schools and related agencies. It shatters the complacency and silence of the pervasive corruption found in school districts throughout the Nation. Dr. Armand A. Fusco provides a detailed look at the rationale for the three levels of corrupt acts: cheating and deceit, waste and mismanagement, and fraud and stealing. Find out how and where shameful and deplorable corrupt acts have been committed in each state and school district as Fusco delves into some tough questions: Why does corruption and "political correctness" lead to poor student achievement, disgraceful school outcomes, and failing schools? How does inept school governance allow corruption to flourish with such ease? What is the most important question that is never asked of an applicant for superintendent of schools? The harsh reality is that corruption has become a natural part of the educational landscape, but it's hidden from view by walls of denial and self-protection. Only by accepting the challenge of a new beginning can trust be restored so that the devastating impact of corrupt acts on the education of children, and the violation of the public trust, will become a thing of the past.

Secrets, Silences, and Betrayals is an invitation to readers to consider factoring in the often discarded or censored but useful information held by the dominated. The book's principal claim is that the unsaid weighs in significantly on the scale of semantic construction as that which is said. Thus, it legitimates the impact of the absentee in broadening and clarifying knowledge and understanding in most disciplines. In other words, just as exogenous epistemologies have underlain and explicated the basis for understanding diverse encounters-social, political, historical, cultural, literary, etc.-Secrets, Silences, and Betrayals challenges, from a pluridisciplinary angle, such highly dominant approaches to investigating the origin, nature, ways of knowing, and limits of human knowledge. It thus yields to the deontological basis to critically reexamine our understanding of the world around us. It is in this regard that the present volume points towards the need for human history to become a cumulative record and re-recording of every human journey and endeavor in life; it brings together disparate voices illuminating topical issues that would be or have been legated to posterity as nonexistent, partial, or half-truths.

Betrayal seems to have lost its grip on the public consciousness in liberal societies, yet it is all around us, dissolving the thick glue of trust that holds friends, families, and communities together. By focusing on the ethics of betrayal, Avishai Margalit offers a philosophical account of what we owe those who give us our sense of belonging.
