Identity and Political Attitudes in the Post--civil Rights Generation
Author: Andrea Y. Simpson
Publisher: NYU Press
Category: Political Science
What does it mean to be black in a nation increasingly infatuated with colorblindness? In The Tie That Binds, Andrea Y. Simpson seeks to answer this crucial question through the prism of ethnic and political identification. Historically, African Americans have voted overwhelmingly Democratic in governmental elections. In recent years, however, politically conservative blacks--from Clarence Thomas to Louis Farrakhan to Ward Connerly–have attracted much of the media's gaze. What is the nature of black conservatives' constituency, and is it as strong and numerous as conservatives would have us believe? To what extent, if at all, does black conservatism stem from a weakened sense of collective racial identity? Simpson tackles the peculiar institution of black conservatism by interviewing college students to determine their political attitudes and the ways in which these are shaped. The result is a penetrating interrogation of the relations between political affiliation, racial identity, and class situation.
The Poems of the Poet Preacher
Author: Richard Carleton
The Tie That Binds is a compilation of poems written over the lifetime of a Congregationalist minister. The poet and preacher, Richard Carleton, tells us about his faith from day to day, talking about love, philosophy, children, family, and his memories. Within these personal reflections, he speaks of the mystery and eloquence of God. He creates extraordinary pictures of God from the ordinary events in our lives. This is the key! Richard Carleton lets us know that God is central to his thinking and feeling and living. It is both a refuge for him and an exhortation for the rest of us. If you were to accept-just for the time it takes to read these verses-that God is a real part of our lives, you might see your acceptance of our Creator and Redeemer assume a new and expanded reality: God as the underlying force! These poems let you see a man of deep faith, and at the same time, ask yourself about your own faith.

When she walked out, Rachel thought she was through with Lucas Neuman and his high-society family forever. But that was before her little girl became deathly ill...before the man who'd so cruelly betrayed her became her only salvation. Five years apart hadn't eased the pain of Rachel's leaving...or the fierce desire that coursed through Lucas when he saw her again. But it was desperation that brought her to his door: only a bone marrow transplant would save their little girl--the daughter he hadn't known he had. Now time was running out. Was it possible to heal the pain of the past and start over with this woman he had never stopped loving?
Author: Kent Haruf
From the bestselling author of Eventide, The Tie That Binds is a powerfully eloquent tribute to the arduous demands of rural America, and of the tenacity of the human spirit. Colorado, January 1977. Eighty-year-old Edith Goodnough lies in a hospital bed, IV taped to the back of her hand, police officer at her door. She is charged with murder. The clues: a sack of chicken feed slit with a knife, a milky-eyed dog tied outdoors one cold afternoon. The motives: the brutal business of farming and a family code of ethics as unforgiving as the winter prairie itself. Here, Kent Haruf delivers the sweeping tale of a woman of the American High Plains, as told by her neighbor, Sanders Roscoe. As Roscoe shares what he knows, Edith's tragedies unfold: a childhood of pre-dawn chores, a mother's death, a violence that leaves a father dependent on his children, forever enraged. Here is the story of a woman who sacrifices her happiness in the name of family--and then, in one gesture, reclaims her freedom.

Accommodating Diversity in Canada and the European Union
Author: John Erik Fossum,Paul Magnette,Johanne Poirier
Publisher: Peter Lang
Category: Political Science
Modern states - and novel multinational polities such as the European Union - have to contend with greater degrees, and more complex forms, of diversity. What elements keep complex, -post-national-, political entities together? What are the ties that bind people together in a world where they cannot rely on the safety of established national identifications (if they ever could)? This collection of essays by leading political scientists, philosophers and legal academics from Canada and Europe provides a transatlantic dialogue on the ways in which complex states (such as Canada) and non-states (the EU) may broach the modes of difference and diversity that confront them. Authors engage in insightful -diagnoses- of contemporary forms and modes of diversity, as well as critical appraisals of a number of normative responses meant to answer these challenges. These responses range from -reasonable accommodation- and multinationalism to cosmopolitanism. They include the recognition of -post-national-, -multinational- or -deterritorialised- democracy and constitutional patriotism, as well as plural or -denationalised- citizenship."

Confessions of a Modern-Day Mystic
Author: Dr. Richey Novak
Like medieval mystics wanting to understand and even merge with God, many people today want to comprehend their relationship to the universe, but also feel comfortable in it. Finding ones place in the vastness of time and space is a daunting task for which searchers need all the help they can get. In Me and the Big Bang, Richey Novak shares reflections from his own quest to find the meaning and purpose of life while exploring the often complicated man-universe relationship. Novak uses insights from the worlds of science, anthropology, and psychology to outline the unfolding of the universe from the moment of origin down a long evolutionary path that ultimately culminated, for him, in individual consciousness and self-awareness. Tracing a path from the Big Bang theory to the evolution of man to myths and religions, Novak provides answers to the common questions that virtually all humans have at one time or another. Me and the Big Bang an intimate, honest exploration of the process of coming into being and living a rich, full life that will help anyone ready to embark on their own journey to the truth.
Author: Benjamin B. Lindsey,Harvey J. O'Higgins
Publisher: University Press of Colorado
Judge Benjamin Barr Lindsey’s exposé of big business’s influence on Colorado and Denver politics, a best seller when it was originally published in 1911, is now back in print. The Beast reveals the plight of working-class Denver citizens—in particular those Denver youths who ended up in Lindsey’s court day after day. These encounters led him to create the juvenile court, one of the first courts in the country set up to deal specifically with young delinquents. In addition, Lindsey exposes the darker side of many well-known figures in Colorado history, including Mayor Robert W. Speer, Governor Henry Augustus Buchtel, Will Evans, and many others. When first published, The Beast was considered every bit the equal Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and sold over 500,000 copies. More than just a fascinating slice of Denver history, this book—and Lindsey’s court— offered widespread social change in the United States.

Is it advisable to go back from bedside to the bench? During the last decade, few topics encountered such a broad interest in bio- gy and medicine as angiogenesis. The amazing ability of the body to restore blood flow by induction of blood vessel growth as part of an adaptive process has alarmed physicians dealing with diseases in which angiogenesis is either exaggerated (as in tumors) or too slow (as in ischemic diseases of heart and brain). Not surprisingly, pro- and antiangiogenic strategies have found their way into clinical trials. For instance, for the USA, the NIH website in early 2004 displayed 38 clinical studies involving either pro- or antiangiogenic th- apies. Given the expected overwhelming wealth of clinical data, the question may be asked whether further exploration of biological mechanisms is required or whether results from the bedside are instructive enough to proceed. This question depends also on the progress of pro- and antiangiogenic clinical trials. In the following, I give a short overview about some of the progress that has been made in this field. Since Judah Folkman proposed antiangiogenic tumor therapy thirty years ago, it has become increasingly evident that agents which interfere with blood vessel formation also block tumor progression. Accordingly, antiangiogenic therapy has gained much attention as a potential adjunct to conventional c- cer therapy.
Author: J. M. E. Moravcsik
Publisher: Central European University Press
Annotation This book, like in classical times of Plato and Aristotle, treats individual and communal ethics as intertwined. At its heart lies the quartet of respect, concern for welfare of others, trust, and care as the basic communal ties. Moravcsik's proposal for ethics does not deny some objective ground for sound communal life, but leaves many alternatives within which the four basic ties can be implemented.
