Speaking to Good Effect introduces students to the ancient and ubiquitous art of rhetoric. Whenever we try to achieve something with words as our tools, we become rhetoricians. Whenever we respond – positively or negatively – to someone else’s words, we become rhetorical critics. It is, therefore, not surprising that the art of rhetoric has been studied and taught for more than twenty?four centuries.

Help for those who have been harmed by Christians–and those who have inflicted the wounds. Throughout history, Christians have done considerable damage to others–both independently and in the name of Christ. Each time this occurs, one of God’s precious creations is wounded and the church’s witness to the world is grievously weakened. For years, unbelievers and Christians have rejected the church because of damaging encounters with a Christian, a Christian leader, or a group of Christians. No matter how much we wish to reverse the damage, however, we cannot reach the unchurched with the life-changing message of the gospel–nor can we protect those still within the body–unless we insist upon dramatic changes within our church communities. Targeting every person who has ever been hurt by a Christian–as well as those believers responsible for inflicting such damaging wounds–author Dave Burchett calls for a new way of relating that will bring healing to the church and transform our witness to the world.

This first-ever biography of American actress Anne Francis will enlighten her casual fans and earn a nod of agreement from her diehard admirers. The star of such 1950s cinematic classics as Bad Day at Black Rock, Blackboard Jungle and Forbidden Planet, Anne made the risky decision to transplant her talents to television—and as a result, her acting has often been taken for granted. But TV supplied her with the groundbreaking title role in Honey West (1965–66), where she became the first leading actress to portray a private detective on a regular weekly series. All of Anne Francis’ film and television appearances are chronicled, including a full episode guide for Honey West and a complete listing of her guest roles on such series as The Twilight Zone, The Untouchables and Murder, She Wrote.

Narrative of Sojourner Truth is one of the most important documents of slavery ever written, as well as being a partial autobiography of the woman who became a pioneer in the struggles for racial and sexual equality. With an eloquence that resonates more than a century after its original publication in 1850, the narrative bears witness to Sojourner Truth's thirty years of bondage in upstate New York and to the mystical revelations that turned her into a passionate and indefatigable abolitionist. In this new edition, which has been edited and extensively annotated by the distinguished scholar and biographer of Sojourner Truth, Margaret Washington, Truth's testimony takes on added dimensions: as a lens into the little-known world of northern slavery; as a chronicle of spiritual conversion; and as an inspiring account of a black woman striving for personal and political empowerment.

Viel zu lange wurde Rassismus als reines Problem rechter Extremisten definiert. Doch die subtileren, nicht weniger gefährlichen Vorurteile finden sich dort, wo man am wenigsten mit ihnen rechnen würde – im Herzen der achtbaren Gesellschaft. Was bedeutet es, in einer Welt, in der Weißsein als die selbstverständliche Norm gilt, nicht weiß zu sein? Reni Eddo-Lodge spürt den historischen Wurzeln der Vorurteile nach, und zeigt unmissverständlich, dass die Ungleichbehandlung Weißer und Nicht-Weißer unseren Systemen seit Generationen eingeschrieben ist. Ob in Politik oder Popkultur – nicht nur in der europaweiten Angst vor Immigration, sondern auch in aufwogenden Protestwellen gegen eine schwarze Hermine oder einen dunkelhäutigen Stormtrooper wird klar: Diskriminierende Tendenzen werden nicht nur von offenen Rassisten, sondern auch von vermeintlich toleranten Menschen praktiziert. Um die Ungerechtigkeiten des strukturellen Rassismus herauszustellen und zu bekämpfen, müssen darum People of Color und Weiße gleichermaßen aktiv werden – »Es gibt keine Gerechtigkeit, es gibt nur uns.«
