"In the non-stop thriller, The Phoenix Apostles, magazine journalist Seneca Hunt is reporting on the opening of Montezuma’s tomb in Mexico City when the dig team learns that the remains of the Aztec emperor are missing. Within moments of the discovery, an apparent terrorist attack kills everyone at the site. Seneca barely escapes the carnage and begins a hair-raising investigation into the cause of the tragedy. " --Amazon editor
A memory brought up by the description
That description interested me because something like this happened in 1997 at The Queen Hatshepsut temple in Egypt, which I did visit in late 2009, remembering that event. Over 50 tourists arrived early morning and were about to climb ramps and steps to the various levels, accompanied by guards and police, when they were all mowed down by terrorists, shot and then stabbed in case any were still alive. I think one policeman survived. Needless to say tourism was way down for years afterward. While walking the site, I couldn't help but think of what those tourists had gone through a dozen years before that.

Growing a better future: Food Justice in a resource-constrained world (expanded edition English)
Author: Robert Bailey
Genre: Global Food System - Economics - International
DESCRIPTION: The global food system works only for the few - for most of us it is broken. It leaves the billions who consume food lacking sufficient power and knowledge about what they buy and eat, and the majority of small food producers dis-empowered and unable to fulfil their productive potential. The failure of the system flows from failures of government - failures to regulate, to correct, to protect, to resist, to invest - which mean that companies, interest groups, and elites are able to plunder resources and to redirect flows of finance, knowledge, and food. Growing a Better Future describes a new age of growing crisis: food price spikes and oil price hikes, devastating weather events, financial meltdowns, and global contagion. It shows how the food system is at once a driver of this fragility and highly vulnerable to it, and why in the twenty-first century it leaves 925 million people hungry. Growing a Better Future supports a new campaign with a simple message: another future is possible and we can build it together. Over the coming years, decisive action around the world could enable hundreds of millions more people to feed their families and prevent catastrophic climate change from destroying their (and our) futures. In this new enhanced edition, Oxfam adds papers and research which develop and update the main themes of the report: land, and the growing scandal surrounding the new wave of investments (`land grabs'); how climate change is related to food security and the East African food crisis; and how people living in poverty around the world have coped with food price crises. There are also extended case studies from Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, India, Malawi, and Nepal, and an extended and updated bibliography and resources list.
