Description : This book proposes a theory of the reject, a more adequate figure than the subject for thinking friendship, love, community, democracy, the postsecular, and the posthuman. Through close readings of Nancy, Deleuze, Derrida, Cixous, Clement, Bataille, Balibar, Ranciere, and Badiou, Goh shows how the reject has always been nascent in contemporary French thought. The recent turn to animals and bare life, as well as the rise of the Occupy movement, he argues, presents a special urgency to think the reject today. Thinking the reject most importantly helps to advance our commitment to affirm others without acculturating their differences. But the reject also offers, Goh proposes, a response finally commensurate with the radical horizon of Nancy’s question of who comes after the subject.
Description : Syah Walker wants to show the school counselor at Emdaria North Middle School that she can handle more difficult counseling cases. However, Syah gets a harder case than she expects in seventh-grader Nali. Nali takes rejection hard after being cut from her beloved magnoball team. Losing the sport, and her best friend, is like losing part of herself. When Syah enters Nali's mindscape, she finds it flooded with Nali's feelings of betrayal and grief, as well as monstrous mental constructs that pursue the girls without mercy. As they battle the monsters together, Syah realizes that Nali's athletic skills might translate to a new sporting interest, and a new sense of her true self. Back in the physical world, Nali discovers new meaning by joining the martial arts club. It isn't exactly magnoball, but the new sport helps her learn to move on, make new friends, and maybe reconnect with some old friends as well. This exciting adventure will capture readers' imaginations and keep them turning the page to follow Syah's latest jouney inside the mind.

Description : A universal question in both the religious and non-religious communities has always been whether or not Jesus is God. Subsequently, the theological question becomes: If He is God, how can this be reconciled or understood with respect to one's belief in ONE GOD (monotheism)? In plain language, this book uses the Scriptures in a systematic theological approach to expose the Trinitarian error and those of other religions that reject Jesus as being the complete fullness of the Godhead. In this book, "They Still Reject Jesus," the "Oneness Doctrine" is contrasted to that of a "3 Person God Doctrine."

Description : For the half-century duration of the Cold War, the fallout shelter was a curiously American preoccupation. Triggered in 1961 by a hawkish speech by John F. Kennedy, the fallout shelter controversy--"to dig or not to dig," as Business Week put it at the time--forced many Americans to grapple with deeply disturbing dilemmas that went to the very heart of their self-image about what it meant to be an American, an upstanding citizen, and a moral human being. Given the much-touted nuclear threat throughout the 1960s and the fact that 4 out of 5 Americans expressed a preference for nuclear war over living under communism, what's perhaps most striking is how few American actually built backyard shelters. Tracing the ways in which the fallout shelter became an icon of popular culture, Kenneth D. Rose also investigates the troubling issues the shelters raised: Would a post-war world even be worth living in? Would shelter construction send the Soviets a message of national resolve, or rather encourage political and military leaders to think in terms of a "winnable" war? Investigating the role of schools, television, government bureaucracies, civil defense, and literature, and rich in fascinating detail--including a detailed tour of the vast fallout shelter in Greenbriar, Virginia, built to harbor the entire United States Congress in the event of nuclear armageddon--One Nation, Underground goes to the very heart of America's Cold War experience.
