Hope’s Daughters by R. Wayne Willis Summary

This volume throws out a lifeline to all who are running low on hope--those going under, losing their grip, slipping away, falling, failing, listing, losing, lost--as well as to those looking to enliven and embolden their hope. Hope's Daughters takes a comprehensive, 360-degree approach to hope, drawing inspiration from nature, history, poetry, science, philosophy, religion, psychology, fiction, art, biography, sports, children, and current events. This hope "reader" is deeply personal, drawing on the author's thirty years spent in hospital chaplaincy plumbing the depths with patients, their families, and their caregivers. Willis writes not from some ivory tower, but out of the hot caldron of human suffering. As "a lover of words, quotations, and stories, and one who aspired to serve others as a hope-prompter," Willis packs every page with a two-minute drill to jumpstart hope each day. For hurried people, this book removes life's husk and gets straight down to the kernel. As a cornucopia of wisdom and hope, Hope's Daughters is an eminently practical gift for those seeking to keep hope alive and well.

Uncommon Sense by Howard Zinn,Dean Birkenkamp,Wanda Rhudy Summary

Why Howard Zinn has become one of the most important and influential American historians is perhaps nowhere more evident than in this new book. Few social critics have been as inspiring as the ever-hopeful Zinn and, unlike many historians, Zinn turns historical details toward deeper observations on the universal truths and struggles of humankind. His remarkable wisdom and insight can be found in his earliest writings through his latest essays, speeches, and plays. Uncommon Sense brings together his most poignant and profound quotations from decades of writing and speaking. The book reveals the philosophical side of Howard Zinn and a consistency of vision over 50 years on topics ranging from government to race, history, law, civil disobedience, and activism. Offering quotations of universal and timeless quality, the book shows why history will regard this historian as a political and moral philosopher in the company of Paine, Jefferson, Frederick Douglass, and Martin Luther King Jr.

The Indispensable Zinn by Howard Zinn Summary

A “well-chosen anthology of the radical historian’s prodigious output,” from A People’s History of the United States and lesser known sources (Kirkus Reviews). When Howard Zinn died in early 2010, millions of Americans mourned the loss of one of the nation’s foremost intellectual and political guides; a historian, activist, and truth-teller who, in the words of the New York Times’s Bob Herbert, “peel[ed] back the rosy veneer of much of American history to reveal sordid realities that had remained hidden for too long.” A collection designed to highlight Zinn’s essential writings, The Indispensable Zinn includes excerpts from Zinn’s bestselling A People’s History of the United States; his memoir, You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train; his inspiring writings on the civil rights movement, and the full text of his celebrated play, Marx in Soho. Noted historian and activist Timothy Patrick McCarthy provides essential historical and biographical context for each selection. With a foreword by Noam Chomsky and an afterword from Zinn’s former Spellman College student and longtime friend, Alice Walker, The Indispensable Zinn is both a fitting tribute to the legacy of a man whose “work changed the way millions of people saw the past,” and a powerful and accessible introduction for anyone coming to Zinn’s essential body of work for the first time (Noam Chomsky).

The Bomb by Howard Zinn Summary

As a World War II combat soldier, Howard Zinn took part in the aerial bombing of Royan, France. Two decades later, he was invited to visit Hiroshima and meet survivors of the atomic attack. In this short and powerful book, Zinn offers his deep personal reflections and political analysis of these events, their consequences, and the profound influence they had in transforming him from an order-taking combat soldier to one of our greatest anti-authoritarian, antiwar historians. This book was finalized just prior to Zinn's passing in January 2010, and is published on the sixty-fifth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. Simultaneous publication this August in the U.S. and Japan commemorates the 65th anniversary of the USA's two atomic bombings of Japan by calling for the abolition of all nuclear weapons and an end to war as an acceptable solution to human conflict. "Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history…"—New York Times Book Review "This collection of essays is a great book for anybody who wants to be better informed about history, regardless of their political point of view."—O, The Oprah Magazine "Zinn collects here almost three dozen brief, passionate essays…Readers seeking to break out of their ideological comfort zones will find much to ponder here."—Publishers Weekly "A bomb is highly impersonal. The dropper can kill hundreds, and never see any of them. The Bomb is the memoir of Howard Zinn, a bomber in World War II who dropped bombs along the French countryside while campaigning against Germany. After learning of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Zinn now speaks out against the use of bombs and what it can do to warfare. Thoughtful and full of stories of an old soldier who regrets what he has done, The Bomb is a fine posthumous release that shares much of the lost wisdom of World War II."—James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review "Throughout his academic career, his popular writings and work as an activist Zinn consistently, and often successfully, threw a wrench in the works of the US war machine. He may be gone, but through his powerful and passionate body of work—of which The Bomb is an excellent introduction—thousands of others will be educated and inspired to work for a more humane and peaceful world."—Ian Sinclair, Morning Star "The path that Howard Zinn walked—from bombardier to activist—gives hope that each of us can move from clinical detachment to ardent commitment, from violence to nonviolence."—Frida Berrigan, WIN Magazine Howard Zinn (1922 –2010) was raised in a working-class family in Brooklyn, and flew bombing missions for the United States in World War II, an experience he now points to in shaping his opposition to war. Under the GI Bill he went to college and received his Ph.D. from Columbia University. In 1956, he became a professor at Spelman College in Atlanta, a school for black women, where he soon became involved in the civil rights movement, which he participated in as an adviser to the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and chronicled, in his book SNCC: The New Abolitionists. Zinn collaborated with historian Staughton Lynd and mentored a young student named Alice Walker. When he was fired in 1963 for insubordination related to his protest work, he moved to Boston University, where he became a leading critic of the Vietnam War. In his liftetime, Zinn received the Thomas Merton Award, the Eugene V. Debs Award, the Upton Sinclair Award, and the Lannan Literary Award. He is perhaps best known for A People's History of the United States. CityLights Booksellers and Publishers previously published his essay collection A Power Governments Cannot Suppress.

Offering a critical examination of the nature of co-produced research, this important new book draws on materials and case studies from the ESRC funded project ‘Imagine – connecting communities through research’.

The book will be valuable for practitioners within community contexts, and researchers interested in working with communities, activists, and artists.

Du contrat social by Jean Jacques Rousseau Summary

Comment se forment les sociétés ? Qu’est-ce qui détermine une organisation sociale juste ? Comment concilier les intérêts de chacun et l’intérêt général ? Rousseau recourt à l’hypothèse d’un état de nature pour tenter de répondre à ces interrogations fondamentales : une société naît toujours d’un pacte social, contracté par tous avec tous, par lequel chacun renonce à sa liberté naturelle pour gagner une liberté civile. Ce contrat social a pour principe fondateur la souveraineté du peuple. Paru en 1762, Du contrat social est un texte essentiel de la philosophie politique ; les questions qu’il soulève résonnent encore aujourd’hui.

Performing Remains by Rebecca Schneider Summary

'At last, the past has arrived! Performing Remains is Rebecca Schneider's authoritative statement on a major topic of interest to the field of theatre and performance studies. It extends and consolidates her pioneering contributions to the field through its interdisciplinary method, vivid writing, and stimulating polemic. Performing Remains has been eagerly awaited, and will be appreciated now and in the future for its rigorous investigations into the aesthetic and political potential of reenactments.' - Tavia Nyong'o, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University 'I have often wondered where the big, important, paradigm-changing book about re-enactment is: Schneider’s book seems to me to be that book. Her work is challenging, thoughtful and innovative and will set the agenda for study in a number of areas for the next decade.' - Jerome de Groot, University of Manchester Performing Remains is a dazzling new study exploring the role of the fake, the false and the faux in contemporary performance. Rebecca Schneider argues passionately that performance can be engaged as what remains, rather than what disappears. Across seven essays, Schneider presents a forensic and unique examination of both contemporary and historical performance, drawing on a variety of elucidating sources including the "America" plays of Linda Mussmann and Suzan-Lori Parks, performances of Marina Abramovic ́ and Allison Smith, and the continued popular appeal of Civil War reenactments. Performing Remains questions the importance of representation throughout history and today, while boldly reassessing the ritual value of failure to recapture the past and recreate the "original."

L'art de la guerre by MACHIAVEL Summary

"La" traduction, très attendue, d'un classique de la pensée militaire, présentée et annotée par l'un des meilleurs spécialistes de la littérature de la Renaissance. En rédigeant son art de la guerre, Nicolas Machiavel entend donner aux princes italiens les moyens de défendre leurs Etats contre l'invasion française. A ses yeux, le salut se trouve dans un retour aux doctrines antiques, dans la filiation des premiers conquérants, tels Alexandre, Hannibal et César. Embrassant doctrine, histoire, tactique et stratégie, l'auteur livre le chef-d'oeuvre de l'" humanisme militaire ". Jean-Yves Boriaud propose ici une nouvelle traduction et une présentation inédite de ce classique de la pensée militaire, lui rendant enfin son exceptionnelle modernité et autorisant Machiavel à rejoindre Sun Tzu et Clausewitz au panthéon des théoriciens intemporels du phénomène guerrier. Nicolas Machiavel (1469-1527) est l'un des plus grands penseurs de la Renaissance italienne. Après Le Prince, L'art de la guerre est son maître livre. Traduit, présenté et annoté par Jean-Yves Boriaud

La Révolution introuvable by Raymond Aron Summary

Mai 68 n’aura-t-il été qu’un psychodrame bavard, selon la formule cruelle et lapidaire de Raymond Aron ?Dans La Révolution introuvable, l’observateur perspicace de l’actualité politique montre que par-delà le brouhaha des apparences, les risques étaient faibles que Mai 68 ne constitue un danger sérieux pour les institutions de la Ve République. Les deux grandes forces qui structuraient alors la vie politique française, le Parti communiste et le mouvement gaulliste, n’y avaient aucun intérêt.Comme l’analyse Philippe Raynaud dans sa préface inédite, Raymond Aron, en héritier de la grande tradition sociologique, fut également attentif à la crise essentielle de nos sociétés modernes dont Mai 68 fut un des premiers symptômes : la tension contradictoire entre la passion de l’égalité, la demande de reconnaissance des individus, et l’interdépendance croissante de chacun à l’égard de tous.

Stèles. La Grande Famine en Chine (1958-1961) by Jisheng Yang Summary

Ce récit unique, œuvre d’un intellectuel chinois, est le premier compte-rendu historique complet de la Grande Famine provoquée par le régime communiste en Chine entre 1958 et 1961. Fruit d’une douzaine d’années de recherches sur le terrain, appuyé sur des milliers de pages de sources locales et de nombreux témoignages de première main, Stèles constitue un document exceptionnel. A la fin des années 1950, Mao Zedong lança le « Grand Bond en avant » dans le but d'accélérer la transition vers le communisme. Cela provoqua un gigantesque désastre économique dans les campagnes chinoises. La folie de la collectivisation à outrance détruit toute la société rurale, jusqu’à la famille. Pour nourrir les villes, on en est réduit à affamer les paysans. La ferveur révolutionnaire des cadres locaux se mêle à la terreur qu’inspire la hiérarchie et aggrave la situation ; la transmission de fausses informations (exagération des récoltes, occultation des morts de faim) donne lieu à des instructions insensées (achat forcé de quantités basées sur les résultats exagérés) auxquelles l’administration n’ose s’opposer. Dès la fin 1958 s’abat l’horreur : des villages entiers sont effacés par la famine, les cas de cannibalisme se multiplient, les survivants perdent la raison ; en sus des morts de faim, beaucoup sont battus à mort, ou poussés au suicide, des milliers d’enfants sont abandonnés... « Ce livre est une stèle pour mon père, mort de faim en 1959, une stèle pour les 36 millions de Chinois victimes de la famine, une stèle pour le système responsable du désastre ». Récit de l'intérieur, il aurait pu être aussi celle de l’auteur, puisque Stèles n’est pas publié en Chine.

Victorious Insurgencies by Anthony James Joes Summary

Insurgencies, especially in the form of guerrilla warfare, continue to erupt across many parts of the globe. Most of these rebellions fail, but Four Rebellions that Shaped Our World analyzes four twentieth-century conflicts in which the success of the insurgents permanently altered the global political arena: the Maoists in China against Chiang Kai-shek and the Japanese in the 1930s and 1940s; the Viet Minh in French Indochina from 1945 to 1954; Castro's followers against Batista in Cuba from 1956 to 1959; and the mujahideen in Soviet Afghanistan from 1980 to 1989. Anthony James Joes illuminates patterns of failed counterinsurgencies that include serious but avoidable political and military blunders and makes clear the critical and often decisive influence of the international setting. Offering provocative insights and timeless lessons applicable to contemporary conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, this authoritative and comprehensive book will be of great interest to policy-makers and concerned citizens alike.

God and Government by Cornelis Van Dam Summary

Ours is a time of rapid cultural change with new economic challenges. People look to their governments for leadership and solutions. But what can and should government do to meet the difficulties that beset a nation? What can citizens expect from their elected representatives? What is reasonable? And what should citizens do? What are their responsibilities? This book addresses such fundamental issues through the eyes of Scripture and against the backdrop of North America's dual heritage of Christianity and humanism. Government, politics, and the Bible do not seem like a good mix. But as this book aims to show, the Bible has much wisdom to teach us about the place and role of government and its citizens. Biblical principles work because God knows how his world and his servant governments are supposed to function. After all, he ordained the governing authorities, and the principles enunciated in his Word are timeless and remain practical. This book introduces fundamental biblical principles that apply to government and politics. The intent is to inform and to motivate the reader to get involved where possible in the political processes of the day. Our legislators need the input and help from their knowledgable Christian constituents.
