The Host Book Description :

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed. Wanderer, the invading 'soul' who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

The Host Gaze in Global Tourism Book Description :

Most tourism theories have been developed from the tourists' perspective and focus on the Anglo-American experience. This unique book for researchers and students of tourism is the first to look at the host gaze; how it is constructed, how it has developed, how it varies between countries and how the tourism industry can affect it. By looking at the gazes of both Western and non-Western hosts, this book analyses the consequences such a gaze can have upon the tourist.

Lords of the Host Book Description :

Love must win, but to blood-thirsty warmongers, love is a sentiment best enjoyed after the battle is won and the carnage of their victory can be gloated over. There is clearly a distinction between love and true love. One is obtained by deeds of mercy and sacrifice with patience, while the other demands instant gratification for its pretense. And iniquity is aware of this, and it wears many disguises as any covert double agent would. Iniquity strikes at the heart of the contention between war and peace, with elements of surprise that cause each side to yield to its objective, which is the annihilation of all existence, ever hoping that it is not recognized for what it isthe common enemy in disguise. People who yield to the temptations of lies and deception are the prodigy of iniquity that survive on the advice and potency of reprobate sinners. They heed Satans call in broad daylight, not resting until evil is accomplished, and they squirm at night in the mire of iniquity, which has become a real and true resting place for them as they tally the dead and what has been destroyed in their minds eye before they sleep.

Phagocytosis The Host Book Description :

An accompanying volume (Volume 6) in this series presents strategies of cellular invasion from the viewpoint of the microbe. This filed of study is growing rapidly after a somewhat slow start over recent decades. This collection of invited chapters attempts to reflect current research, and brings together cell biologists, microbiologists and immunologists with disparate interests. However, there is a certain unity, even repetition of key themes, hopefully like a symphony rather than a boring catalogue. It will be evident that editorial bias favors intracellular paratism and medically important organisms. The neutrophil is far more than a supporting player to the macrophage, and some attempt is made to remind the reader of some of its unique skills. To retain a manageable size, the emphasis is on relatively early events such as mutual recognition, cell entry, and response, rather than on longterm changes in gene expression by either host cell or pathogen. Viruses are excluded not because of lack of importance but because of somewhat different research approaches, although it is cytogenes, share common strategies in invasion and intercellular spread.
