Signed and inscribed by the author, "Best Wishes to Bill Lay, Evil Companion, fellow 'warbler' and good guy from 'the author' H. Ray Baker." Red Cloth.

How Ray financed a mountain ranch, supported a hired man who was too busy to work, fed and clothed a wife and two children, acquired a "Hereford Herd," bought a "blooded" bull of doubtful ancestry, and all the while worked as art director for a small printing company is worth finding out about.

A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power, Carter, Jimmy
16 Carter, Jimmy A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power
Simon & Schuster 2014-03-25 1476773955 / 9781476773957 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Author
Signed by Jimmy Carter on title page without inscription. First Edition with full number line. The world's discrimination and violence against women and girls is the most serious, pervasive, and ignored violation of basic human rights: This is President Jimmy Carter's call to action. President Carter was encouraged to write this book by a wide coalition of leaders of all faiths. His urgent report covers a system of discrimination that extends to every nation. Women are deprived of equal opportunity in wealthier nations and owned by men in others, forced to suffer servitude, child marriage, and genital cutting. The most vulnerable, along with their children, are trapped in war and violence. A Call to Action addresses the suffering inflicted upon women by a false interpretation of carefully selected religious texts and a growing tolerance of violence and warfare. Key verses are often omitted or quoted out of context by male religious leaders to exalt the status of men and exclude women. And in nations that accept or even glorify violence, this perceived inequality becomes the basis for abuse. President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, have visited 145 countries, and The Carter Center has had active projects in more than half of them. Around the world, they have seen inequality rising rapidly with each passing decade. This is true in both rich and poor countries, and among the citizens within them. Carter draws upon his own experiences and the testimony of courageous women from all regions and all major religions to demonstrate that women around the world, more than half of all human beings, are being denied equal rights. This is an informed and passionate charge about a devastating effect on economic prosperity and unconscionable human suffering. It affects us all.
