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.
Author: Laura Gale
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?

Narrated by her neighbour, Edith's tragedies unfold: a tough childhood, a mother's death, a violence that leaves a father dependent on his children, forever enraged. She is a woman who sacrifices everything in the name of family - until she is forced to reclaim her freedom in one dramatic and unexpected gesture. Breathtaking and truthful, The Tie That Binds is a powerful tribute to the demands of rural life, and to the tenacity of the human spirit.

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.

The Story of an Afro-Cherokee Family in Slavery and Freedom
Author: Tiya Miles
Publisher: Univ of California Press
"In this lyrical narrative about Shoeboots, Doll, and their descendants, Tiya Miles explores the constant push and tug between family connections and racial divides. Building on meticulous and inspired historical detective work, Miles shows what it might have felt like to be a slave and reassesses the convoluted ideas about race that slavery generated and left as a legacy."--Nancy Shoemaker, author of A Strange Likeness: Becoming Red and White in Eighteenth-Century North America "Ties That Bind is a haunting and innovative book. Tiya Miles refuses to avoid or cover over the most painful aspects of the shared stories of Indians and African Americans. Instead, Miles passionately defends the need to explore history, even when the facts provided by history are not those that contemporary people want to hear."--Peggy Pascoe, author of Relations of Rescue: The Search for Female Moral Authority in the American West, 1874-1939

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."
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.

Popular Stories of the New Woman, 1915-1930
Author: Maureen Honey
Publisher: University of Oklahoma Press
Category: Literary Criticism
The New Woman-an independent, nontraditional, usually career-minded woman for whom marriage and family were secondary-became a popular heroine in women’s magazine fiction from the time of World War I through the 1920s. During this period, American culture entertained a new, feminist vision of gender roles that helped pave the way for modern images of women in public activity. The stories in this collection are drawn from the biggest periodicals of the day-Ladies’ Home Journal, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Woman’s Home Companion, and McCall’s-as well as the African-American magazine The Crisis. Each story is rooted in some dimension of contemporary feminism and explores a topic of continuing importance, such as solidarity among women, the lives of women of color and working-class women, sexual harassment, lesbian love, family and marital bonds, and women’s relation to paid employment.
