Getting Out Book Excerpt:

Prison ministry needs to be reevaluated. It just is not working. The typical approach to prison ministry is to lead an inmate to Christ to save his or her wretched soul from the pits of hell. However, what about the hell that a particular inmate will face upon release? Michael Bowe introduces a more wholistic approach that engages in the social gospel and restorative justice to address many of the concerns people face when leaving prison. He utilizes systems theory as an approach to address societal and family issues. Getting Out engages the reader with conversations and struggles real people face when leaving prison.

Family in Buddhism Book Excerpt:

The Albany Institute is one of the nation's oldest cultural institutions, dating to 1791. This comprehensive overview of its American art and decorative-arts collections presents colorplates and essays about 130 objects (of a total exceeding 20,000), each chosen for its national significance, artistic merit, and relevance to the Institute's mission: collecting and interpreting the art, history, and culture of New York State's Upper Hudson Valley from the late seventeenth century to the present. Due to the region's central role in the early development of the country and Albany's importance as the state capital, much of the collection transcends regional origins to attain national significance.

Growing Yourself Up Book Excerpt:

To be human is to be in relationships. We can’t survive without them but it’s in relationships that we can so easily get unravelled. Some relationships just seem to do us in. Either we feel like we lose ourselves or feel burnt out from futile efforts to make things right for another. In our relationships we can experience the very best of ourselves and the very worst. The message of Growing Yourself Up is that you can’t separate understanding the individual from understanding relationships. All of life’s relationships are integral to increasing self-awareness and maturity. And it’s not necessarily the comfortable relationships that promote personal growth. In this 2nd edition of the bestselling book, Jenny examines how to help others without fostering dependency, and how to determine what kind of help you or others want from therapists. This is in response to the many lay and professional people who have found this book valuable personally and want to know how to help others grow. Drawing from Bowen family systems theory, the book takes you on a journey through each stage of life to see predictable patterns of relationships and to show how to use this knowledge to make purposeful adjustments in yourself; as well as lending a mature helping hand to others. The result is a sturdier self, sturdier relationships and a refreshing new way to view life’s challenges and opportunities.

Let s Keep Talking Book Excerpt:

Let's Keep Talking: Lacanian Tales of Love, Sex, and Other Catastrophes is a collection of original Lacanian case studies of young people today as they struggle with their own modern existential dilemmas of sex and love, life and death. The context, background, and forms of expression may be contemporary, but the clients' problems, structures, and existential dilemmas are quite classic. The five narrative tales highlight the role a Lacanian orientation played in the interactions, formulations, and results, from initial meetings to terminations. Grounded in concrete clinical material, the case studies illuminate specific and universal themes of human suffering and how we can treat that suffering by speaking. Yael Baldwin argues that in our cultural milieu of "connective technologies", and the rise of biotechnology and psychopharmacology in particular, we are in need of mental health treatment methods that highlight talking and relationships as essential to our personhood, our suffering, and our healing and growth. Let's Keep Talking argues that now, more than ever, we need the endeavour of analytic talk therapy.

The Heart of Love Book Excerpt:

Love is the very nature of God. It is the essence of his sanctity. It is the something of his divinity that permeates our very existence. It is through him and in him that creation was given life By looking upon Christ we see the love of God. By accepting Christs nature, we come into the truth of that love. God is love. If this book doesnt change your mind, it will still change your heart. Amidst the toils and spoils of the world and the shadow cast by our many grievances, we often forget the joy of dwelling in simple love. Joshua Millers debut book, Heart of Love, explores the wisdom and virtue of being a person of love. Read about love. Love is in this book; it waits for you. This book is a destroyer, a creator, and a healer; for love is all of these. Love will destroy falsehood. It will heal old wounds. And it will create new worlds of goodness and possibility. Come to the siren song of love. Dance in its flow. Let your eyes meet its words. Let your heart embrace the light. This book, this little lantern, will shine into your heart. It will add to that light that is already in you, that transcendent light that pushes the darkness into oblivion. Interweaving unique poetic tones within his wisdom-filled study, Miller takes readers beyond simple surface acceptance and into the cavernous riches found within love. These words are for you. The prime nature of this book is love. It wakes you. It is alive with the spirit of love; may it resound in your soul as you read it.

Dynastic Democracy Book Excerpt:

The political history of Thailand since the overthrow of absolute monarchy in 1932 has conventionally been interpreted as a long series of popular struggles for representative democracy and against military authoritarian rule. Yoshinori Nishizaki argues that this history can be better understood as one of struggles by elite political families for and against "dynastic democracy". Drawing extensively on Thai-language primary sources, including assets documents and cremation volumes for deceased politicians and their kin, Nishizaki traces the intricate blood and marriage connections among Thailand's political families. Dynastic Democracy fleshes out a widely acknowledged yet heretofore empirically unsubstantiated facet of Thai political history--that in Thai politics, family matters.

Making Families Book Excerpt:

This book goes to the heart of academic, political and popular debates, as well as professional concerns, about the nature of contemporary family life and parenting. Families are widely discussed in western societies as breaking down or as radically changing, with step-families in particular seen as evidence of such trends. In one of the first British in-depth sociological research studies for over two decades, this book provide evidence of parents' and step-parents' own understandings and experiences of their parenting in step-families. It addresses questions such as: What does it mean to be a family? Do people in step-families see themselves as making a different kind of family? Is individual happiness in a couple relationship prioritised at the expense of responsibilities towards children? Can a step-parent ever be regarded as the same as a biological mother or father? What do people in step-families do to try to make step-family life work? The book looks at how people create, understand and experience their parenting and family lives. It reveals how these understandings are rooted in a strong sense of moral responsibility, but that what such responsibility constitutes varies according to gender and social class. In particular, it draws out key theoretical implications for understanding the nature of morality, fairness and justice, and questions ideas about individualisation and the democratisation of family life. This book will be essential reading for those concerned with the study of contemporary family lives, including sociologists, social policy analysts, family therapists, professionals and practitioners. It is also relevant to those interested in contemporary morality and everyday experiences.

Bits of Practical Wisdom Book Excerpt:

God gave man dominion over the earth, and the practical wisdom to use it for his good and His glory God placed the treasures of the earth for man's benefit. Political correctness denies God's goodness, while practical wisdom directs thankful use of His bounty. We were told we could not drill our way out of our problems while practical thinking doers were proving the stupidity of the statement. Ivory tower thinking is of little use to our progress while practical planning is our salvation from crisis. Dishonest charlatans pursue politically correct ideologies, while wise people use practical solutions. Practical plans always trump divisive dreams. Practical planning and hard work built our great nation - political correctness and sloth are destroying it. Practical truthfulness applied to our many problems can, in God's will, overcome the evil plans of our dishonest, lying oppressors. The Golden Rule Jesus gave us is the epitome of practical consideration of others. The Marshall plan after WW II was practical wisdom applied - pacification of Islam before WW III is ideological suicide. Practical plans and hard work built this great nation - ivory tower thinking and slothfulness is its doom. Practical workers build houses on rock foundations - Foolish men build on sand, and great is their fall. See Matthew 7: 24-27. A practical man planning to build a tower, sits down first and counts the cost. See Luke 14:28. Practical people energetically earn their keep and support others - lazy dreamers feel entitled to exist on the fruits of others' efforts. Practical politicians endorse responsible, truthful fiscal policies - dishonest liars waste our resources and leave the pitiful mess for our grandchildren to suffer under. Impractical charlatans promise anything to gain power - practical planners tell the truth, even when it is unpopular. The lies of evil leaders imprison the souls of the masses - the truth shall make us free. See John 8:32. Peace and joy come to practical people. Dishonest dreamers exist in turmoil and fear. One practical person benefits the community more than a score of entitled lay-abouts.

One Hundred Towers Book Excerpt:

This book takes the newest approach in anthropology--what is most frequently called reflexive ethnography wherein the anthropologist provides information on the researcher as well as the researched--one step further. After years of anthropological research in diverse cultures of the world, Romanucci-Ross, in this study, returns to the town in Italy where her Italian/American family came from. In Ascoli Piceno she is not only anthropological researcher but niece and aunt, cousin and daughter; here the professional outsider with the insider's perspective deals effectively with the parallax error inherent in views of observer and observed in the anthropological enterprise. A beautifully written yet scholarly account of a vivid and lively culture, this book is also a groundbreaking approach to the ever growing effort by anthropologists to overcome the limitations that emerge from the separation between researcher and subjects.
