Whereas many books look at how women's bodies are represented in different religions and cultures around the world, this work explores the site of a woman's voice and identity, her head. The female head threatens to disrupt the classic gender distinctions that link men to speech, identity, and mind while relegating women to silence, anonymity, and flesh. The contributors to this collection argue that the objectification of women as sexual and reproductive bodies results in their symbolic beheading. Decapitation occurs symbolically in myths as well as in actual practices such as veiling, head covering, and cosmetic highlighting, which by sexualizing a woman's face turns it into an extension of her body. The essays explore how similar treatments of the female head find their unique articulation in diverse religious traditions and cultures: in Hindu myths of beheading, in Buddhist and Tantric practices and poetry about the hair of female nuns, in the resistance to veiling by early Christian women at Corinth, in contemporary veiling practices in a Turkish village, in the eroticization of the female mouth in ancient Judaism, and in Greek and Roman cosmetic practices. Together these essays show how the depiction of the female head is critical for an understanding of gender and its influence on other fundamental religious and cultural issues.

WHAT WILL DESTROY ONE CHILD WILL BE THE MAKING OF ANOTHER. From the icy banks of a secluded country pond to the fevered core of a historic London heat wave and immersion in an abandoned underwater village in the Tuscan mountains, four young people—each of whose lives has been irrevocably altered by water— converge in this brilliantly plotted drama of passion, betrayal, revenge, and redemption. Owen is haunted by nightmares of the Merfolk. He believes they have stolen his little sister, who vanished while he was meant to be watching her on the beach. But he was only a child himself. Is it fair for his mother to have blamed him all these years? Catherine’s perfect Christmas was ruined when she went skating on a frozen pond with her cousin and the other girl nearly died. Yet it is Catherine who feels, as she says, “permanently trapped under the ice.” Sean grew up on a farm in Ireland. Learning to swim in the River Shannon was his way of escaping the bitter poverty of his childhood, but communing with the river spirits incurred his superstitious father’s wrath. Naomi never feared the water. She was orphaned, cruelly abused, and the sea offered a cleansing balm; she reveled in the ocean’s power. But Naomi has another secret buried deep within her, and during one searing hot summer she will be the catalyst for the coming together—and tearing apart—of the water children.

Elizabeth Scott had never wanted to write a book. She had never even considered such a thing, but suddenly one day she found her head full of ideas about a love so deep and profound that it could span time and unite lovers. She felt compelled to write it down. The more she wrote the more ideas just came to her. She would wake in the night with thoughts and conversations that she had to write in the book. Finally it was fi nished and published. Just a short, time-travel love story, but it had sold beyond her expectations and now she was a famous author. Flying home from a book signing one autumn day, Elizabeth found herself sitting next to a man, who not only looked almost like the picture she had drawn of the main character in her book, but he also had the same name. From that moment on, her future appeared to depend on her past. The problem was, Elizabeth had been adopted and her past was not something she knew. The search for her past and the discoveries she made took her and Dan down a road that brought them closer and closer together. For every adopted person who has wondered about their past, I hope you will enjoy her search. For every one who ever hoped for that special love, but never seem to fi nd, this story may give you hope. Any questions or comments may be directed to the author at [email protected]

A classic of 20th-century fiction, The Berlin Stories inspired the Broadway musical and Oscar-winning film Cabaret. First published in the 1930s, The Berlin Stories contains two astonishing related novels, The Last of Mr. Norris and Goodbye to Berlin, which are recognized today as classics of modern fiction. Isherwood magnificently captures 1931 Berlin: charming, with its avenues and cafés; marvelously grotesque, with its nightlife and dreamers; dangerous, with its vice and intrigue; powerful and seedy, with its mobs and millionaires—this is the period when Hitler was beginning his move to power. The Berlin Stories is inhabited by a wealth of characters: the unforgettable Sally Bowles, whose misadventures in the demimonde were popularized on the American stage and screen by Julie Harris in I Am A Camera and Liza Minnelli in Cabaret; Mr. Norris, the improbable old debauchee mysteriously caught between the Nazis and the Communists; plump Fräulein Schroeder, who thinks an operation to reduce the scale of her Büste might relieve her heart palpitations; and the distinguished and doomed Jewish family, the Landauers.

Emotionally abused all her life by a domineering father, Emma thought she might have a shot at happiness after his death. But then she heard the terms of his will! She must marry Jason Montenegro and give birth to a son. Only then would he give her the location of her mother – a woman who Emma thought had abandoned her at the age of five, only to find out that she had been fighting for custody all these years.

And he had to produce a child with this woman? So be it! He’d do anything to get that information, even marry a woman who had apparently slept with any man that crossed her path. But as he got to know the gentle beauty, he discovered that she was nothing like her father. She was kind and sweet, generous to a fault. And he was falling in love with his enemy’s daughter!

So, for centuries your people have worked as farmers and hunters, knowing the future would roll down to the end days prophecied by the Mayan culture like a run-away freight train? Sue asked. Yes, it is true, Frank replied. We didnt have much choice, we had to keep body and soul together until the end days. We rocked along for centuries working in the fields and hunting. We domesticated fowl, eating their meat and eggs. We were all small communities and lived in simple dwellings that were relatively easy to repair. If we suffered natural disasters like earthquakes and tornadoes that destroyed our homes, we cleared away the rubble and started over. Then we came up on the twentieth century and everything got different. We went through a surge of creating new inventions. We learned to fly and made electricity, toilets that flushed, fancy cell phones and the internet. Suddenly there wasnt anything happening on the planet we didnt know about. Weve become complacent now, and a hundred years after the inventions came, our fancy inventions are beginning to crumble. We got so we depended on the economy. The monetary system took over. Men became greedy and pulled and tugged at the proceeds from Wall Street until it all began to unravel. They created bigger and better weapons not where you had your enemy in your sights, but you could take out whole cities at a time. The Hopi tell in their prophecies of villages in metal and glass canyons, where a man could walk all day and never see the horizon. One day someone would push a button and where a city had been there would just be steam. The people would have no choice but to just walk away if they survived. We are getting to be like the Olmecs and Mayans and Aztecs who couldnt feed their people because their population and their cities got too big, and they had to abandon them. Its not impossible New York could become an abandoned city. It could happen. They could just walk away. In the twentieth century, for the first time skirmishes became world wars. The young men left the land their forefathers defended and went to lose their blood and their lives defending someone elses land. One day soon we will lose all our fancy toys to the end of the age of electricity and technology and succumb to sunspots that will devastate communications. Our forefathers never knew sunspots existed.
