The Breadwinner Trilogy from the Author: Stevie Kopas. An omnibus edition of all the three books in Stevie Kopas' The Breadwinner Trilogy. In a matter of days the human race is reduced to nothing more than vicious, flesh hungry creatures. Samson, a criminal defense attorney, struggles to keep his family safe and his sanity intact when the world comes apart at the seams. Veronica, a high school track star, races to get her brother out of their doomed city. Ben, a military veteran, comes to grips with the end of the world as he fights the undead. Andrew, a police officer, struggles to maintain some sort of humanity in a world overrun by death and destruction. There is no good vs. evil, there is simply the living vs. the dead. The good guys don’t always win, because sometimes, the good guys have to be the bad guys in order to stay alive. There are no heroes here. Just survivors. This special edition features the previously published The Breadwinner, Haven and All Good Things, and includes the bonus companion story "Nefarious."

The Mother And The Bread Winner from the Author: Meron Zeleke. The book examines the interplay between technology, social organization and gender based on an ethnographic study among the Gumuz in the Benishangul region of Northwestern Ethiopia. It draws on and critiques the analytical framework built by Boserup (1970) and further refined by Goody (1976), i.e., the type of farming technology a society uses determines its social organizational principles and defines gender roles and statuses.
