La Cambrioleuse is a proud and confident futa cat burglar. For her, much of the fun of her job is donning her rubber cat suit and having her way with hapless women she encounters during her capers. But there are rumours Batmaiden has had enough of La Cambrioleuse's string of successful heists. La Cambrioleuse is warned by her old arch criminal friend the Puffin to be wary. But La Cambrioleuse is unconcerned. As her minion Mousie laces her into her corset and squeezes her into her complicated and super tight rubber suit, La Cambrioleuse knows she has an unbroken string of successful burglaries and sexual conquests to her name. What could go wrong? Batmaiden is only a prissy little bread and butter miss who could not possibly be a threat. Careful, Cambrioleuse. Pride goeth before a fall. Will villainess and super heroine encounter each other at last?

Darren Selby just got what he deserved. He's just not ready to admit wearing skirts and heels is what he's always wanted. After a spectacularly botched booty call with his old girlfriend Ruby, Darren's also managed to cross her new roommate Hailey. An ordinary gal pal might get some revenge, but Hailey's far from ordinary... and far from human. In no time, Darren finds himself on the other side of the gender line, getting a chance to literally walk in his Ruby's shoes and see how it feels to be treated so poorly by the male sex. A simple weekend's object lesson gets thrown into overdrive when it comes to light that Hailey's from a species of reality-bending aliens with a contract on her head. When idiot bounty hunters kidnap Ruby thinking she's Hailey, Darren has no choice but to go further down the rabbit hole of his feminine side in order to join forces with Hailey and rescue Ruby. Collecting Solar Harris' wildly popular Rubyfruit Kiss serial in a single volume, this omnibus also includes an all-new story set in the aftermath of the erotic sci-fi adventure. Gender transformation. Pretty dresses. Corsets. Brain-controlling parasites. Tentacle monsters. Space bridges. Handsome aristocrats. Bikini parties. Rubyfruit Plus.

Colonialism by Proxy

Hausa Imperial Agents and Middle Belt Consciousness in Nigeria

Author: Moses E. Ochonu

Publisher: Indiana University Press

ISBN: 0253011655

Category: History

Page: 294

View: 6800

Moses E. Ochonu explores a rare system of colonialism in Middle Belt Nigeria, where the British outsourced the business of the empire to Hausa-Fulani subcolonials because they considered the area too uncivilized for Indirect Rule. Ochonu reveals that the outsiders ruled with an iron fist and imagined themselves as bearers of Muslim civilization rather than carriers of the white man's burden. Stressing that this type of Indirect Rule violated its primary rationale, Colonialism by Proxy traces contemporary violent struggles to the legacy of the dynamics of power and the charged atmosphere of religious difference.

Leslie’s new school is full of surprises. But the biggest are her fellow students. Half of the girls are like nothing she’s ever seen before: tall, athletic, sexually charged, and all packing serious heat between their legs. Life was hard enough in her old school, but Leslie’s about to find out she isn’t just the new kid. To these girls, she’s fresh meat. Long Description: As the newest student of White Reef High, Leslie’s in for many big surprises. First, there’s Ms. Hawke, who takes a very hands-on approach to physical education. Then there’s half the student body, who are more bubbly, pretty and confident than Leslie could ever hope to be. And then there’s the other half. These girls are something else. Tall, athletic, sexually charged, and all packing serious heat between their legs. Life was hard enough in her old school, but Leslie’s about to find out she isn’t just the new kid. She’s fresh meat. FUTANARI Sex ED is over 10,000 words of sex-filled fun between well-hung futanaris and eager females, and has a HFN ending. ~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~ Z ara held her hands to her hips, jutting one out to the side. “You can look, you know.” She swept her hand in a downwards motion, as if presenting herself for an audience. “It likes the attention.” Her smile was infectious, and Leslie found her lips twitch into a shy grin herself. And since she had permission, she let herself take a peek. She definitely liked what she saw. God, what a cock! And to her surprise, it had freckles, just like the rest of Zara. Those little dots made her enticing penis cute and sexy at the same time. Ms. Hawke instructed the class to stand on their mats. “Let’s start with the absolute basics. First, all the futas need to get hard.” The teacher began her ‘demonstration.’ running her closed fist up and down the length of her cock until it filled with blood and stood out straight from her body. The tip was a bright red, and a long blue vein snaked down the length of her shaft. The lights from overhead caught against a speck of pre-cum on the dick’s tip, making it glimmer. Leslie was enraptured, her heart racing as she watched her PE teacher rub her enormous dick in front of everyone. She hoped nobody noticed her going red again. It went without saying that things here were very different from her old school! … " All right, everyone; clothes off!” Leslie felt dizzy as she watched every last person in the class, including Ms. Hawke herself, undress and throw their clothes in a pile in the corner of their mats. In a few blinks, Leslie was standing in front of a class of naked young women – and she was the only one with her clothes still on. Some of the taller girls, the ones who were now very obviously futanari, held hands with their partners, and some of were even kissing. Others simply stood around with their arms crossed, looking like they would rather be paired with anyone but their assigned partner. “Look, I know you’re new here, but you’re really going to have to start following my instructions the first time I give them, Hall.” Ms. Hawke was looking at her seriously. “It wouldn’t be fair if I gave you special treatment; I expect all of my students to listen to what I say and follow me without question. So take your clothes off and be ready to help me demonstrate for the class.” “Demonstrate?!” Leslie couldn’t believe what she heard. “You’re going to…we’re going to…” Ms. Hawke pulled off the elastic in her hair and shook her hair out, the mousy blonde locks whipping from side to side. When her hair was free, she blew a few strands from face and replied: “Of course. I’m not going to let my students to fuck each other before showing them how to first.” ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~ “Now,” the teacher continued. “It isn’t enough that I stand here and lecture you, much as I enjoy hearing the sound of my own voice.” Every girl rolled her eyes. “But since everyone here is eighteen, I thought we would make things a little more, well, practical today.” This got their attention. Girls immediately began chattering, their faces beaming with excitement. “Here is the list of pairs I’ve put together myself. All those whose partners are absent will be assigned together, or will join me up the front.” A titter rose. The teacher flipped a page on her clipboard and cleared her throat. “Stanley and LeHorn. Nichols and Prabhu. Chang and Finn.” This went on, with girls partnering up as their names were read out. Some looked less than enthused about their pairing, but others came together with giggles and coy smiles. One girl demanded that she be paired with her best friend, and the teacher barked so loud that Leslie nearly jumped out of her skin. Once they were all paired off, something became uncomfortably clear to Leslie. Her name hadn’t been called out. “Um, m-miss?” she said, raising her hand weakly and trying to get the teacher’s attention over the noise. “M-miss? I didn’t… I mean I’m new, and I don’t…I didn’t…” The teacher took one glance at her, and then exhaled through her. “Sorry, they told me I’d have a new kid today. Totally skipped my mind.” She flipped over the page. “Name?” “L-Leslie Hall,” she stammered. “Leslie…Hall…” she repeated quietly, writing it down. She then placed the pencil in her breast pocket and removed her sunglasses. Her eyes were a beautiful ocean green, and they crinkled at the corners as she smiled. In an instant, this teacher was friendly and had none of the hardness she had shown before. “Nice to meet you, Leslie. I’m Ms. Hawke.” She held out her hand. Leslie smiled back and shook her hand, albeit a little tentatively. “Nice to meet you too, Ms. Hawke.” The teacher looked out at the crowd. “Well, looks like everyone has their partner today. You’ll have to be mine. Hope that’s alright with you?” “Mm-hmm. I mean, yes, that’s fine, Ms. Hawke.” The teacher chuckled, throwing her a mischievous look. “Relax, kid. You’ve picked a great day for your first PE lesson.”

Described in Nature as 'a delight for the soil aficionado', this multi-authored collection examines the complex interrelations between societies in different parts of the world and the soils they relied on from the perspectives of geomorphology, archaeology, pedology and history. The geographical spread includes Mesoamerica, Africa, Europe, Australia, India and Easter Island. Few things are more important to human survival than the fertility of the soils from which so much of our food comes. Yet few aspects of the relationship between human society and the environment get so little attention. This book explores some of the enormous variety in the ways that people have worked with, thought about, damaged and restored soils. It also shows some of the ways in which soils, their properties and their histories have influenced human affairs. Soils are the substrate of all human society: from the palaeolithic to the present, their history is our history

Africa in the Nineteenth Century Until the 1880s

Volume VI of this acclaimed series is now available in an abridged paperback edition. The result of years of work by scholars from all over the world, The UNESCO General History of Africa reflects how the different peoples of Africa view their civilizations and shows the historical relationships between the various parts of the continent. Historical connections with other continents demonstrate Africa's contribution to the development of human civilization. Each volume is lavishly illustrated and contains a comprehensive bibliography. Volume VI covers the period from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the onset of the European "scramble" for colonial territory in the 1880s. In spite of a growing European commercial, religious, and political presence during the first three quarters of the century, outside influences were felt indirectly by most African societies, and they made a number of culturally distinctive attempts to modernize, expand, and develop. These are detailed in four thematic chapters, twenty-three chapters detailing developments in specific areas, and two concluding chapters tracing the African diaspora and assessing the state of the Continent's political, economic, and cultural development on the eve of the European conquest.

The Institutionalized Use of the Drug Qat in North Yemen

Author: J.G. Kennedy

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9401568766

Category: Social Science

Page: 269

View: 3927

This book concerns the use of the drug qat in North Yemen (Yemen Arab Republic), a country lying on the southwestern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. However, because this substance is so interwoven into the fabric of society and culture, it is also necessarily about Yemen itself. The history and culture of South Arabia are still relatively unknown to the rest of the world, and the drug qat, so widely used there, is equally unknown. Thus, the material we present here should be of interest to all of those concerned with drug use, those who wish to understand more about Yemen and the Middle East, and to the Yemenis themselves. Another purpose is to develop some general understandings about sub stance uses and their effects which are less clouded by the mass hysteria and political considerations which often obscure drug issues in our own society. Examination of drug-use patterns in a country where millions of people are users on a regular basis, and where there has been familiarity with the drug for several hundred years, offers an opportunity to achieve perspectives not possible in countries with different attitudes and without such histories. I am not sanguine about the prospects of our abilities to learn from others or from the past, but I do not think we should abandon hope of doing so.

The Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO) saw the first operational deployment of US armoured divisions in World War II, and the experience proved chastening for the 1st Armored Division when it suffered defeat at the hands of Rommel's Afrika Korps at the battle of Kasserine Pass. This title covers the organization of these early US armored divisions, as well as the independent tank and tank destroyer battalions that accompanied them. It details the evolution of US armoured warfare tactics and doctrine, learned from the difficult experiences of North Africa, and illustrates how they were used elsewhere in the Mediterranean, particularly in the Italian Peninsula.
