A Vedic phrase asks us to “treat the world as family.” In our age of global crises—pandemics, climate crisis, crippling inequality—this sentiment is more necessary than ever. Solutions to these seemingly insurmountable problems demand new approaches to thinking and acting locally, nationally, and transnationally, sometimes sequentially but often simultaneously. This is the mentality of the immigrant, the exchange student, the global native, and all who have made a life in a new place by choice or by necessity. Yet we suffer from a lack of the truly capacious thinking that is so urgently needed. Vishakha N. Desai uses her life experiences to explore the significance of living globally and its urgency for our current moment. She weaves her narrative arc from growing up in a Gandhian household in Ahmedabad to arriving in the United States as a seventeen-year-old exchange student and her subsequent career as a dancer, curator, institutional leader, and teacher against the broad sweep of political and social changes in the two countries she calls home. Through her personal story, Desai reframes the idea of what it means to be global, considering how to lead a life of multiple belongings without losing local and national affinities. Vividly conjuring the complexities and exhilaration of a life that is rooted in many places, World as Family is a vital book for everyone who aspires to connect across borders—real and perceived—and bring to fruition the ideal of a global family.

Modern coverage of world events suggest that war and violence are key to contemporary society. History can convince us that it has ever been so, and many theorist of international relations argue that nothing is likely to change. Roy Weatherford argues that a profound change in social relations is imminent as national sovereignty yields to a democratic world culture, speaking a world language and living as a world wide family - the human family. For too long world peace has seemed a noble but unattainable ideal. Weatherford shows that it is now both economically and politically possible and is therefore our moral duty.

The Richest Family in the World is the fictional tale of the Goodwins, a hard-working, God-fearing family whose deep spirituality serves them well, especially during times of crisis. Like many families around the world, the Goodwins rely on their faith in God to guide them through their many adventures. John and Sarah Goodwin, a farming couple with eight children, have been happily married for forty-two years. All eight children helped work the farm when they were younger; however, much to their father's disappointment, as adults, they have no interest in taking over the family business. As a result, John and Sarah Goodwin must face the biggest heartbreak of their lives-losing the farm. Another tragedy strikes the family when Sarah travels to visit the brother she never knew existed and is critically injured in a plane crash. The richest family in the world is the family that loves, respects, and helps one another, especially through controversy and difficult times. Through the roller coaster adventures of the Goodwins, The Richest Family in the World demonstrates that there are no perfect families-just families who share the faith that, through it all, they will survive and hope and love will prevail.

World-famous photographer Zion Ozeri, a Manhattan resident raised in Israel, is acclaimed by organizations around the world for capturing, in some instances, the last Jewish communities in many countries, from India to Iran. He has traveled the world collecting these priceless cultural portraits of a people united by tradition. To illuminate the Haggadah, the annual retelling of the Jewish people's escape from Egypt, Ozeri's photographs are paired with modern text by noted Jewish scholar and Haggadah expert, Shoshana Silberman, whose A Family Haggadah I and II (Karben) are widely used in Reform and Conservative Jewish family celebrations of Passover. This handsome, affordably priced Haggadah, in trade paperback, is the first of its kind to use photography to illustrate the annual book of prayers and traditions used in over 6,000,000 Jewish households across America each year. Each photo will be accompanied by a facing caption telling the land of origin of its subjects, from Argentina to Bukharin to the land of Israel. This is the only Haggadah to combine contemporary photographs from around the Jewish world with one of the most user friendly and all inclusive commentary by Shoshana Silberman. The photographs were carefully chosen to relate to the text on the page, creating and encouraging a conversation around the Seder table, by children and adults alike. The photographs from Israel, India, Morocco, USA, Argentina, Peru to name but a few, bring to light other Jewish communities and traditions. Shoshana Silberman's notes, interpretations and guidance makes leading the Seder and navigating the book easy. Her comments throughout, help explain the source of many of the different customs that are part of the Seder ceremony among diverse Jewish communities-Sephardim, Ashkenazim, etc.
