The Whip is inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man in the old west. As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love with a runaway slave and had his child. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track the killer. Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver for Wells Fargo. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her. Charley was the first known woman to vote in America in 1868 (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.

Canadians often see politicians as little more than trained seals who vote on command and repeat robotic talking points. Politicians are torn by dilemmas of loyalty to party versus loyalty to voters. Whipped examines the hidden ways that political parties exert control over elected members of legislatures. Drawing on extensive interviews with politicians and staffers across Canada, award-winning author Alex Marland explains why Members of Parliament and provincial legislators toe the party line, and shows how party discipline has expanded into message discipline. This book exposes how democracy works in our age of instant communication and political polarization. Whipped is a must-read for anyone interested in the real world of Canadian politics.

It’s Human Nature to explore the past, present and fantasied about the future. So, if you look back in the first century where you have a man name Ponce Grineadi who created the perfect gift for his younger brother in the Roman Legion under Governor Pontius Pilate in Judaea. When the gift was used for the first time to draw blood and then it was lost. The search was on as it continues through generations after generations until the present day where the Grineadi’s family, private collectors, foreign countries and two artifact investigators from the Vatican follows a hidden clue that takes them far from the truth and journey through the REAL DEAD-MEN’S CHEST. Therefore, the question remains; if the quest is found how would it affect the present and future religious and scientific world as we know it?

A cruel and sadistic father beat his son with a whip from his early age through his teenage years. Anger, bitterness, and hatred grew as he grew. He developed a use for the gun, becoming proficient with speed and accuracy. He traveled west, meeting good people along the way who turned around his thinking about good against evil. He used his gun to help good people and law enforcement as he traveled through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and finally settled in Wyoming—the state he longed to see—and started a family. But he wasn’t satisfied. With tireless energy, ingenuity, and the help of his family and good friends, he developed an empire that stretched from Wyoming to California.

This short book brings to life a unique and spectacular set of events in Latin American history. In November 1910, shortly after the inauguration of Brazilian President Hermes da Fonseca, ordinary sailors killed several officers and seized control of major new combat vessels, including two of the most powerful battleships ever produced, and commenced bombing Rio de Janeiro. The mutineers, led by an Afro-Brazilian and mostly black themselves, demanded greater rights—above all the abolition of flogging in the Brazilian navy, the last Western navy to tolerate it. This form of torture was closely associated in the sailors' minds with slavery, which had only been prohibited in Brazil in 1888. These events and the scandals that followed initiated a sustained debate about the role of race and class in Brazilian society and the extent to which Brazil could claim to be a modern nation. The commemoration of the centenary of the mutiny in 2010 saw the country still divided about the meaning of the Revolt of the Whip.

Collected in one volume: two women, spouses to French literary figures, setting out to top their husbands in every way possible. The Image, by "Jean de Berg" (Catherine Robbe-Grillet) so thrilled her husband, a somewhat better-known Alain, that he wrote a nifty preface to her work, signing off as "Pauline Reage." And Diane Bataille, who'd heard quite enough about her husband, author and erotic bibliographer Georges, decided one day to pen The Whip Angels, having it published by Maurice Girodias' infamous Olympia Press under the name "XXX". These two classic works of sexuality were published in '55 and '56, bookending the Story of O. The Olympia Press is pleased to bring them both to you in one volume.
