This book examines trends that affect citizen's privacy, now that computer files with information on credit and overall financial status are easily accessible, and not always accurate. The unregulated use of individuals' computer files is a serious challenge to the values that underlie this country's social political well-being. The book discusses the need for balance between the privacy interests of individuals and the financial interests of large institutions, who may benefit from these files in locating those trying to cheat the system. It also examines the problem of protecting personal privacy, and what can be done at government levels.

Over the last decade, the topics of corruption and recovery of its proceeds have steadily risen in the international policy agenda, with the entry into force of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) in 2005, the Arab Spring in 2011, and most recently a string of scandals in the financial sector. As states decide how best to respond to corruption and recover assets, the course of action most often discussed is criminal investigation and prosecution rather than private lawsuits. But individuals, organizations, and governments harmed by corruption are also entitled to recover lost assets and/or receive compensation for the damage suffered. To accomplish these goals of recovery and compensation, private or 'civil' actions are often a necessary and useful complement to criminal proceedings. This study explores how states can act as private litigants to bring lawsuits to recover assets lost to corruption.

All over the world, the statues of Mary are miraculously crying. In the meantime, a journalist in Washington D.C. is diverted away from her own personal demons when she takes it upon herself to question why the Vatican is not declaring these occurrences as miracles after witnessing the unexplainable phenomena herself. The journalist suspects her nightly barage of haunting nightmares about the violent murders of countless women from five thousand year old priestesses to women accused of being witches in the seventeenth century may have something to do with the answer, as she investigates the biggest story of her life. Women all over the world in the 21st century are feeling "the awakening" as the discovery of ancient artifacts are disproving the beliefs set forth by patriarchal religions for thousands of years. When the journalist receives a visitation from a beautiful Goddess who at first appears to be the Virgin Mary, she suddenly realizes that an ancient religious and political cover up has grossly distorted some very important historical truths. As the journalist investigates and begins to publicly write about what she has uncovered, death threats and terror follow next as powerful members of the world's patriarchal religions and the age old male-run organizations that support them fight viciously to keep one of the world's oldest and most deceptive societal form of control against women hidden from the world. But as intimidation and threats increase, so too do the miracles and visitations from the real Sleeping Goddess, as she awakens once again, to bless and protect the world while igniting the hearts and souls of oppressed women everywhere.
