Archaeologists, anthropologists, and classicists discuss how urbanization first emerged in strikingly different sociopolitical contexts in North America, Europe, and the Near East. The pursuit for universally applicable definitions of the terms “urban” and “city” has frequently distracted scholars from scrutinizing processes of how ancient nucleated settlements evolved and developed. Based on the premise that similar social dynamics to a great extent governed nucleation trajectories throughout human history, Coming Together focuses on both prehistoric aggregated and early urban settlements. Drawing from a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, archaeologists, anthropologists, and classicists discuss how nucleation unfolded in strikingly different sociopolitical contexts in North America, Europe, and the Near East. The major themes of the volume are nucleation’s origins, pathways to sustainability, and the transformative role of these sites in sociopolitical and cultural change.

I began writing this collection soon after publishing Emotions. From memory, I have always been fascinated with the moon and remember using my favorite Uncle's World War II binoculars, staring at the moon with wonder and delight. During a conversation with the dear friend from, "In Praise of Southern Girls," she suggested the name, Moon Stages. In truth, our lives change with the seasons but ever so subtly with the more frequent changes of the moon. These poems come from a healed, thankful heart. They pay tribute to friendship, to finding again those from my past, they offer up a thanksgiving for blessings and sing a song to new love. Preview readings from portions of this work have garnered each time the comment, "Can't wait to read this collection!"

The signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was expected to signal the beginning of a new era of close co-operation between Mexico and the United States. Subsequent events, however, have introduced new tensions into the relationship. The 1995 economic collapse in Mexico sharply curtailed economic growth and lowered the demand for U.S. exports. The result has been a substantial deficit in U.S. trade with Mexico and renewed arguments that trade with Mexico reduces the employment opportunities of low-skilled workers in the United States. Immigration, both legal and illegal, has grown as a subject of contention between the two countries. Mexico has also come under increased focus as a conduit for the flow of drugs into the United States. In this book, scholars from the United States and Mexico examine the major elements of the bilateral relationship. The economic dimension is highlighted in two papers that focus on the effects of NAFTA on trade and financial transactions. The political and social dimensions are taken up in three papers on immigration, drug trafficking, and environmental concerns. The contributors include J. Enrique Espinosa and Pedro Noyola, SAI Consultores, Mexico; John Williamson, Institute for International Economics; Juan Carlos Belausteguigoitia, Ministry of the Environment, Mexico; Peter Smith, University of California, San Diego; and George Borjas, Harvard University.

This book presents poetry, which the author believes is another suitable medium of scholarship for expressing his views on Liberia's development. He says that studying poetry, evaluating its messages, and embracing them within relevant contexts can be helpful to Liberians to empathize with and support each other rather than engaging in acts of violence and destruction. The poems cover some of the salient issues of Liberia’s developmental process, highlighting the conditions of progress, stagnation, and regression. The lyrics, figuratively in some poems and literally in others, express the author’s sentiments and hopes for positive change now and in the future for Liberia. . It also includes lyrics with philosophical and social overtones regarding family and friends.

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,” Jesus said in Matthew 18:20. “Making food and giving someone your undivided attention as you share what you’ve prepared elevates an act of love to a spiritual practice,” says Catherine Fowler Sample, writer and producer of the popular film The Dating Project. In Gather Together, she encourages you to get together with others to explore your faith and deepen your relationship with God and each other. Fowler Sample offers more than forty recipes along with a dozen reflections on faith, friendship, and community for Catholics who crave authentic connection, fun gatherings, and good food. Primarily aimed at young adults but great for Catholics of any age, Gather Together supports your faith and fellowship and encourages you to connect with family, friends, or fellow parishioners. The spiritual reflections and seasonal recipes will help you build the community you need in your life. Catherine Fowler Sample shares her experiences of learning to trust in God’s providence, getting to know herself, and discovering how to offer support and receive encouragement within your life in thoughtful, heartfelt reflections. While these reflections get real about the challenges of building community, you’ll also see the sweet and savory rewards of this holy work. Each month has a suggested theme for a gathering, along with reflections, a prayer, and conversation starters to help your gatherings get off to a perfect start. There are recipes for each month’s theme with various courses that you can create and share. The dishes come from classics with a modern twist, traditional family favorites, and originals from Fowler Sample’s kitchen. For example, in January, you can ponder the wisdom of St. Clare of Assisi over Italian soup; and June encourages peace over perfection, as you bake imperfect sweet-potato fries and toss together a steak cobb salad. The starters, entrées, side dishes, and desserts in this collection also offer suggestions for vegetarian, gluten-free, or lactose-free eating. Fowler Sample’s recipes appeal to both the new cook and the seasoned chef and include shortcuts for dishes and suggestions for sharing meal prep with others.

The story of the birth of the Religious Right is a familiar one. In the 1970s, mainly in response to Roe v. Wade, evangelicals and conservative Catholics put aside their longstanding historical prejudices and theological differences and joined forces to form a potent political movement that swept across the country. In this provocative book, Neil J. Young argues that almost none of this is true. Young offers an alternative history of the Religious Right that upends these widely-believed myths. Theology, not politics, defined the Religious Right. The rise of secularism, pluralism, and cultural relativism, Young argues, transformed the relations of America's religious denominations. The interfaith collaborations among liberal Protestants, Catholics, and Jews were met by a conservative Christian counter-force, which came together in a loosely bound, politically-minded coalition known as the Religious Right. This right-wing religious movement was made up of Mormons, conservative Catholics, and evangelicals, all of whom were united--paradoxically--by their contempt for the ecumenical approach they saw the liberal denominations taking. Led by the likes of Jerry Falwell, they deemed themselves the "pro-family" movement, and entered full-throated into political debates about abortion, school prayer, the Equal Rights Amendment, gay rights, and tax exemptions for religious schools. They would go on to form a critical new base for the Republican Party. Examining the religious history of interfaith dialogue among conservative evangelicals, Catholics, and Mormons, Young argues that the formation of the Religious Right was not some brilliant political strategy hatched on the eve of a history-altering election but rather the latest iteration of a religious debate that had gone on for decades. This path breaking book will reshape our understanding of the most important religious and political movement of the last 30 years.

Chief among Maccoby's contentions is that gender differences appear primarily in group, or social, contexts. In childhood, boys and girls tend to gravitate toward others of their own sex. The Two Sexes examines why this segregation occurs and how boys' groups and girls' groups develop distinct cultures with different agendas.

Transculturalism is about identity, and the modern quest for belonging in these times of conflict and war. Grunitzky and his network of writers and photographers from around the world examine, through essays, analyses and personal tales, how certain curious, open-minded people manage to transcend their initial culture in order to explore, examine and infiltrate alien cultures. These "Transculturalists" often date and marry out of their race, religion and, sometimes, gender; they dress unconventionally; and they take jobs once considered out of their league.

Joseph Ratzinger Collected Works

This major volume is a collection of the writings of Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI) on the theology of the Liturgy of the Church, a subject of preeminence to him as a theologian, professor and spiritual writer. It brings together all his writings on the subject, short and long, giving his views on liturgical matters and questions over many years and from various perspectives. He chose to have his writings on the Liturgy for the first volume published of his collected works (though listed as vol. 11) because, as he says in the Introduction: "The liturgy of the Church has been for me since my childhood the central reality of my life, and it became the center of my theological efforts. I chose fundamental theology as my field because I wanted first and foremost to examine thoroughly the question: Why do we believe? But also included from the beginning in this question was the other question of the right response to God and, thus, the question of the liturgy." By starting with the theme of liturgy in this volume, Ratzinger wants to highlight God's primacy, the absolute precedence of the theme of God. Beginning with a focus on the liturgy, he said, tells us that "God is first". He quotes from the Rule of St. Benedict, "Nothing is to be preferred to the liturgy", as a way of ordering priorities for the life of the Church and of every individual. He says that the fundamental question of the man who begins to understand himself correctly is: How must I encounter God? Thus learning the right way of worshipping is the gift par excellence that is given to us by the faith. The essential purpose of his writings on the liturgy is to place the liturgy in its larger context, which he presents in three concentric circles. First, the intrinsic interrelationship of Old and New Testament; without the connection to the Old Testament heritage, the Christian liturgy is incomprehensible. The second circle is the relationship to the religions of the world. The third circle is the cosmic character of the liturgy, which is more than the coming together of a circle of people: the liturgy is celebrated in the expanse of the cosmos, encompassing creation and history at the same time.

It was the best of elections; it was the worst of elections. The 2004 presidential contest mobilized a record number of voters, with 121 million Americans showing up at the polls. But in many eyes, the 2004 race also plumbed new depths. It was the most expensive presidential election in history, with a price tag of $2.2 billion. It was also marked by unprecedented negativity—for example, both George W. Bush and John Kerry came under fire for their activities during the Vietnam War, which ended three decades ago. In V ital Signs, David Dulio and Candice Nelson analyze the Bush and Kerry campaigns and use them as the springboard for a broader exploration of the current U.S. campaign system and its strengths and weaknesses. The book addresses four key issues: Who's in charge of modern campaigns? How effective are the key players? What role does money play? And are campaigns being conducted in an ethical manner? In answering these questions, Dulio and Nelson draw on a wide range of sources, including focus groups, interviews with campaign professionals, and a unique dataset based on multiple surveys of political consultants, party operatives, and the public. The culmination of the seven-year "Improving Campaign Conduct" project, Vital Signs should become an integral part of the debate about American campaigns and elections.

This book is full of stories, some true happenings, some just good stories. Each of these short devotional lessons are a sermon unto themselves. I have had preachers write and tell me that they use them as sermon starters or for devotional lessons. Mostly they are written with the hopes that they will touch something in your heart and help you in your daily walk with Christ.
