Book Description :

This popular classic text chronicles America's roller-coaster journey through the decades since World War II. Considering both the paradoxes and the possibilities of post-war America, Chafe portrays the significant cultural and political themes that have colored our country's past and present, including issues of race, class, gender, foreign policy, and economic and social reform. He examines such subjects as the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, the origins and the end of the Cold War, the culture of the 1970s, the Reagan years, the Clinton presidency, and the events of September 11th and their aftermath. In this edition, Chafe provides an insightful assessment of Clinton's legacy as president, particularly in light of his impeachment, and an entirely new chapter that examines the impact of two of America's most pivotal events of the twenty-first century: the 2000 presidential election turmoil and the September 11th terrorist attacks. Chafe puts forth an excellent account of George W. Bush's first year as president and also covers his subsequent role as a world leader following his administration's declared war on terrorism. The completely revised epilogue and updated bibliographic essay offer a compelling and controversial final commentary on America's past and its future. Brilliantly written by a prize-winning historian, the fifth edition of The Unfinished Journey is an essential text for all students of recent American history.

Book Description :

Inspired by love of country, her Italian heritage, and this nation’s ongoing quest to raise its children to aspire and achieve their greatest dreams, Jeanne Allen wrote An Unfinished Journey, which uniquely challenges us to think big about the education of our youth. The author—a well-known pioneer and veteran of education policy, politics, and culture—provides a compendium of powerful yet brief essays that will have parents, policy makers, and the general public both laughing and crying at the way the nation’s education institutions have developed or mishandled all that it takes to help children achieve their greatest potential. From musings on Columbus Day to how kids behave in school and from the role of parents to politicians, this book is a uniquely informative and instructive firsthand account of the people, policies, and players that have shaped American education and why it matters. Combining a fascinating personal story with political acumen from more than thirty years in the arena, Allen paves the road to finishing the journey to the American dream.

Book Description :

How does Dostoevsky’s fiction illuminate questions that are important to us today? What does the author have to say about memory and invention, the nature of evidence, and why we read? How did his readings of such writers as Rousseau, Maturin, and Dickens filter into his own novelistic consciousness? And what happens to a novel like Crime and Punishment when it is the subject of a classroom discussion or a conversation? In this original and wide-ranging book, Dostoevsky scholar Robin Feuer Miller approaches the author’s major works from a variety of angles and offers a new set of keys to understanding Dostoevsky’s world. Taking Dostoevsky’s own conversion as her point of departure, Miller explores themes of conversion and healing in his fiction, where spiritual and artistic transfigurations abound. She also addresses questions of literary influence, intertextuality, and the potency of what the author termed "ideas in the air.” For readers new to Dostoevsky’s writings as well as those deeply familiar with them, Miller offers lucid insights into his works and into their continuing power to engage readers in our own times.

Book Description :

Yehudi Menuhin was a legend in his own time. Born in April 1916 in New York of Russian-Jewish parents, he made his extraordinary debut at the age of seven, playing Lalo' s notoriously difficult Symphonie espagnole with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. By the time he was eleven he had made historic debuts in Paris and New York, at twelve in Berlin and at thirteen in London, thus launching himself on a career that was to take him all over the world in the ensuing decades, playing with leading conductors and orchestras. Alongside his renown as a great musician, he is equally remembered for his committed humanitarianism, exemplified by his championship of young musicians and his work for international understanding and the many causes close to his synoptic mind and generous spirit. Yehudi Menuhin was made a life peer in 1993 after having received the Order of Merit from H.M. the Queen. Other honours include the Grand Cross of Merit from both Germany and Spain, the Grand Officier de la Legion d'Honneur from France and the Ordre de la Couronne from Belgium. He was an Honorary Doctor of thirty universities in different countries, including Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews and the Sorbonne. First published in 1976, Lord Menuhin's autobiography was updated by him and reissued in 1996. This is the first paperback publication of that edition, now supplemented by a preface by Christopher Hope and a concluding chapter by Michael Binyon. Unfinished Journey tells the full story and reflects the many and varied interests of one of the most gifted musicians and original intellects of the twentieth century.

Book Description :

In the 21st century, the world is faced with threats of global scale that cannot be confronted without collective action. Although global government as such does not exist, formal and informal institutions, practices, and initiatives—together forming "global governance"—bring a greater measure of predictability, stability, and order to trans-border issues than might be expected. Yet, there are significant gaps between many current global problems and available solutions. Thomas G. Weiss and Ramesh Thakur analyze the UN's role in addressing such knowledge, normative, policy, institutional, and compliance lapses. The UN's relationship to these five global governance gaps is explored through case studies of some of the most burning problems of our age, including terrorism, nuclear proliferation, humanitarian crises, development aid, climate change, human rights, and HIV/AIDS.

Book Description :

'What has happened to her would have destroyed many people. She hasn't survived, she's triumphed.' - Ross Fitzgerald In a small Riverina township in the 1950s, an unmarried white woman entered hospital to give birth. Her baby was Aboriginal; the father's identity was unknown. The young mother checked herself out as soon as she could, leaving her newborn daughter behind. For Linda Burney, life began tough in the tiny NSW township of Whitton. Her birth had been a scandal and caused her to be mocked and reviled by some - yet she was also loved by the elderly relatives who took her in and quickly won friends and admiration. From these humble beginnings in country NSW, Linda grew to become a successful teacher, then a leader in a vital community organization, an inspiring political leader, Director General of a state department, and was an outstandingly successful minister in NSW government while her party crumbled around her. But while her professional life flourished, her personal world imploded, a victim of prolonged domestic violence, left unsupported to bring-up two children. Finally, the tragic illness and death of the man she has called 'the love of my life' and the debilitating illness of a child have not diminished her capacity for friendship, loyalty, and generosity. This is the story of a woman who has overcome extraordinary adversity to become a great leader in the Australian community, described by the author as 'the most remarkable woman I've ever met'.

Book Description :

From the beginning, American cinema has been both a powerful mythmaker and a social critic. D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation, arguably the first feature film, shows us just how early in its history cinema had established its influence. In 1915 it was the first movie to be screened at the White House. After the screening, President Woodrow Wilson is rumored to have said, "It's like history writ with lightning. And my only regret is that it is all terribly true." Birth of a Nation famously portrayed the Klu Klux Klan in a favorable light, a portrayal that contributed to the modern resurgence of the group and brought racist depictions of African Americans imported from the minstrel show to the silver screen. Such white fantasies of black American life have played out on our movie screens for the last century. In response, filmmakers of color have created nuanced and indelible portraits of race, as in Ava DuVernay's Selma or Barry Jenkin's Moonlight. Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman shows us just how far into our culture Birth of a Nation has reached. In this powerful new book, Greg Garrett brings his signature brand of theologically motivated cultural criticism to bear on this history. After more than a century of cinema, he argues, movies have altered our cultural perspectives in the same way that religious narratives have. And in fact, religious traditions offer powerful correctives to our cultural narratives. A Long, Long Way incorporates both cinematic and religious truth-telling to the subject of race and reconciliation. In acknowledging the racist history of America's national art form, Garrett offers the possibility of hope for the future.

Book Description :

In this compelling narrative, veteran missionary Friday Ganda finds himself in a dilemma, whether to continue pursuing his beloved teaching career, or answer the call and save souls for Christ. At a young age, having started a magnificent teaching career, found a wonderful wife, and settled in a small town, his local church turns to him so that he might become their pastor. He flees. He ends up in another church, which takes even a shorter time to ask him to be their pastor and believe it or not, he flees again and the next church he joins asks the same. Eventually, Friday realizes that when the Lord sets you on fire for Him, you can do nothing but burn, and people will come and watch you. He realizes you cannot win against the Lord's call and therefore he pursues it. Friday's journey with the Lord takes him from rural Kenya to the deserts of Sudan, from the highlands of Ethiopia to the dusty terrains of Mali and Burkina Faso. His journeys lead him to discover that when the Lord is with you, there is nothing that can stop you.Rev. Friday Ganda served as a Pastor with the Church of the Nazarene in Kenya for four years. Served as District Superintendent for six years, and then as Mission Coordinator for the Country of Kenya for two years, and also as Jesus Film Coordinator for Africa East Field and French Field for two years. Now he is a Missionary with the Church of the Nazarene, having served in Ethiopia, and the Sudan in the Horn of Africa Field, and currently serving in Burkina Faso, West Africa Field. He currently holds a Dip Th. and a BA (Biblical Studies) degree.
