French rule in Syria and Lebanon coincided with the rise of colonial resistance around the world and with profound social trauma after World War I. In this tightly argued study, Elizabeth Thompson shows how Syrians and Lebanese mobilized, like other colonized peoples, to claim the terms of citizenship enjoyed in the European metropole. The negotiations between the French and citizens of the Mandate set the terms of politics for decades after Syria and Lebanon achieved independence in 1946. Colonial Citizens highlights gender as a central battlefield upon which the relative rights and obligations of states and citizens were established. The participants in this struggle included not only elite nationalists and French rulers, but also new mass movements of women, workers, youth, and Islamic populists. The author examines the "gendered battles" fought over France's paternalistic policies in health, education, labor, and the press. Two important and enduring political structures issued from these conflicts: * First, a colonial welfare state emerged by World War II that recognized social rights of citizens to health, education, and labor protection. * Second, tacit gender pacts were forged first by the French and then reaffirmed by the nationalist rulers of the independent states. These gender pacts represented a compromise among male political rivals, who agreed to exclude and marginalize female citizens in public life. This study provides a major contribution to the social construction of gender in nationalist and postcolonial discourse. Returning workers, low-ranking religious figures, and most of all, women to the narrative history of the region--figures usually omitted--Colonial Citizens enhances our understanding of the interwar period in the Middle East, providing needed context for a better understanding of statebuilding, nationalism, Islam, and gender since World War II.

The Link between Effective Writing and Vocation A vocation is a calling. It is profound, it is exciting, and it is dynamic. It gives freedom, and it is fun. Dr. Williams, as an educator, shows her freedom. She is not a slave to a book, or to a syllabus. She is disciplined, organized and free to truly teach. Has there been a time when you would sit down to write a letter and you felt discouraged? You just couldn't express yourself. Did you need to write a report or a memo and find yourself erasing it, scratching things out or hitting the delete button over and over? Many of us suffer this writing dilemma because we have had a bad education-schools were not up to par. Supervisors may have been too critical, busy and demanding, or burdened by their own responsibilities and lack of encouragement; which lead to our own writing hesitancy, fear and even skittishness. Then there's another story-"I'm too busy." There is denial of writing competence and resistance to change. In this new book Steps for Effective Writing, Dr. Catherine Williams, encourages you to write effectively. She helps you to get your ideas from "head to paper." She believes that life is a series of steps, and in Steps for Effective Writing, you will learn how to write clearly, concisely and correctly. Your writings will be coherent and complete. You will learn what "mapping" does, and how outlining shapes your written work. There are other valuable tips, tricks and tools in this book. The thing that I like about Steps for Effective Writing is that it inspires you to believe in yourself and in your work. This is because, Dr. Cathy, as she is affectionately called, is a child of the King and her book is a mandated product ofher relationship with Him. Therefore, her life as a vocation is dynamic, exciting, passionate and disciplined. She and her students have fun while learning and, you too, will experience Steps for Effective Writing in a similar way. While doing so, you will become an effective writer in this teachable moment.
