I must say that it’s quite unbelievable for me to see how many efforts the media are doing nowadays to brainwash people into accepting the Chinese values as the best in the world. It’s also very surprising to notice that now almost every movie and TV series finds a reason to either talk or show China on the screens.

New York's restrictions on nudism in the mid 1930s was not the work of a single group. Instead it was a combination of forces, both domestic and foreign. A bill to restrict nudism might have died without much notice had the Pope and other religious figures not been as vocal. Nudism was a disdainful cult, they said. My e-book focuses on one group of New York nudists and its plight to remain viable.

Before you can find a “solution” to a problem, you need to identify the problem. Are some police “brutal”? And, if so, why are they “brutal”? For every effect there must be a cause. This book suggests some causes of “brutality” are stress and frustration – repeating the same situations over and over with no resolution in sight would cause even the most placid personality to snap.
