OUR MISSION IN THESE SIX BOOKS 1.Growing Decline in World Peace We started our long journey in these six Books with an expression of concern over the growing decline in world peace. Our Mission throughout our Six Books had therefore focused on our views on how the state of World Peace can be advanced. 2. Enhancing unity between Christianity and Secularity. We expressed at the beginning of our first Book that one major source of the growing decline in world peace is the on-going wars and crises between the Religious and Secular worlds of today. This source of global crises had been acknowledged in a recent conference of global Religious Leaders held in Assisi at the invitation of Pope Benedict XVI. The Conference participants resolved unanimously to address this source of crises in world peace. Global Secular Leaders had also expressed much concern on the growing decline in world peace. They did so again at the last meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. 3.Our Mission to contribute to Pope Benedict XVIs New Evangelization In our view, the recent launching of the New Evangelization by Pope Benedict XVI reflected in part the resolution of Religious Leaders in the Assisi Conference to find ways of addressing the growing decline in world peace due partly to Religious conflicts with Secularity across the world. The Pope called on all Lay members of the Catholic Church and Christians in general to contribute to the success of the Popes New Evangelization-PCNE. As we expressed throughout our six books, our mission in these Books is to respond to the call by Pope Benedict XVI. 4. Military and Secular Perspectives on the Religious and Secular Peace We stated clearly from the start, that our contribution would reflect on the military and secular aspects of the growing conflicts between Christianity and Secularity, using the global experience in both sectors by our Author throughout his career. We had to take these perspectives because we must identify the source, leadership and strategies in the wars and conflicts between the Religious and Secular worlds . Unless we know the leaders in the conflicts and their missions we cannot achieve any progress in resolving these wars and crises and enhance the level of world peace. 5. My Background A few words of introduction on my background may enable the Reader understand my perspectives in these Books. I started the project of writing the Books because I am convinced that I can contribute to the PCNE by bringing my African background in Nigeria, education at the London School of Economics and exposure to global secular governance through my position as a former Economic Adviser with The U.K. Government and a Senior Economist at The World Bank. 6.

Approaching postcolonial theory through cultural analysis, this book offers an accessible and concrete appraisal of current developments in postcolonial criticism. Detailed readings of a range of Anglophone Caribbean migrant women's texts from the late 1980s and 1990s lead to sharp insights into three issues that are crucial to an understanding of the field: place, voice, and silence. The discussion of these issues allows us to trace current feminist, postmodern, and postcolonial debates about the nature of the speaking subject, as it is emerging from today's postcolonial cultural practices. Postcolonial criticism often understands this subject as hybrid and multiple. This book shows how the specifics of this multiplicity must be acknowledged through analysis of the power structures and the violence through which this multiple subject is established. The book is also a consistent inquiry into reading positions. The argument about the differences between postcolonialist, black and Caribbean feminist, white feminist, and postmodern criticism is conducted as a discussion about the effects, insights, and blindnesses produced by these different ways of reading Caribbean migrant women's writing. Scrutinizing the grain of these texts encourages us to move beyond the kind of general statements for which postcolonial theory has been severely criticized. The author also extends her critique of reading positions to issues of methodology, using these approaches to direct her interpretation. Narratology is supplemented by an analysis of the interdiscursive processes through which texts are created, and psychoanalytic concepts are used to explore the ambiguous merits of postcolonial reading. Above all, In Praise of New Travelers celebrates the vigorous, subversive, and liberating creativity of an accomplished generation of Caribbean migrant women writers.

Liturgical Works

Among the invaluable manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls are numerous fragments of liturgical texts pertaining to the ritual life of Jews living around the turn of the common era. These fascinating writings include prayers for annual festivals, a covenant renewal liturgy, a mystical liturgy for Sabbath sacrifices, a grace ceremony for mourners, daily and weekly prayers, liturgies of purification, and perhaps even a wedding ceremony. In this volume, the first to be published in the Eerdmans Commentaries on the Dead Sea Scrolls series, James Davila introduces, translates, and provides a detailed exegesis of these important documents. The book begins with a general introduction to the Qumran library and Jewish liturgical traditions. Davila then provides an introduction, translation, notes on the original Hebrew, and line-by-line commentary for each of the Qumran liturgical works. Davila's excellent translation work combines overlapping fragmentary manuscripts into a single, smoothly flowing text, and his commentary includes numerous fresh insights and observations on these writings. Giving full attention to parallel texts found in the Hebrew Bible and other Jewish and Christian writings through late antiquity, Davila firmly situates the Qumran liturgical works in their historical context in Second Temple Judaism and discusses their significance as background to the Jewish liturgy, Jewish mysticism, and Christian origins. Shedding light on a period of Jewish history whose ritual life formerly lay almost entirely in darkness, this volume makes--and subsequent ECDSS volumes will make--a valuable contribution to our understanding of the biblical world.

This first book in the series provides a glimpse into life's choices and challenges as Apostle Sharon Loving Ruff receives a Rhema word from God that He had hidden within her a "seed" that had been passed down from generations upon generations which was now being brought forth for His divine purposes. God then sends her to the Republic of Liberia and the Federal Republic of Nigeria in West Africa on a one-way airline ticket after audibly pronouncing the reason why she is alive, "I saved your seed from slavery and raised you up. I am sending you to be a blessing to your people." This book explodes into a treasure chest of discoveries, astounding revelations and awesome adventures as Apostle Sharon arrives in Liberia on the date chosen by God and learns that only hours earlier, Charles Taylor led rebel forces to invade the country and Liberia is officially in a state of war. In spite of the dangers surrounding her during the first two months of Liberia's fourteen year civil war, this book continues to chronicle her bold walk of faith as she connects to the plight of the Liberian people and to her ancestral roots in the Kpelle' tribe. Intense spiritual warfare, amazing natural and supernatural encounters and the receipt of profound prophetic words from the Almighty God are among many awesome experiences captured in this book. No matter the gender, age or religious affiliation, reading this book provides the reader with truths and helps direct them to answers for many of life's perplexing questions, including, "Who and I?" and "Why am I here?"

Reden ist Silber, Schweigen ist ... auch keine Lösung. Denn Worte können zwar unendlich verletzen – aber sie können auch unendlich glücklich machen. »Mein Name ist Tess Turner – dachte ich jedenfalls bis vor kurzem. Und ja, ich habe eine Stimme, aber sie gehört nicht wirklich mir. Ich habe Dinge gesagt, um dazuzugehören, um meinen Eltern zu gefallen, um allen zu gefallen. Ich habe so getan, als wäre ich jemand, der ich gar nicht bin. Ich habe gelogen. Dabei ist mir übrigens nie in den Sinn gekommen, dass alle anderen auch lügen könnten. Die Lügen sind aber eigentlich gar nicht das Problem. Was wirklich weh tut, ist die Wahrheit: Sechshundertsiebzehn wahre Worte, die meine ganze Welt auf den Kopf stellen. Und weil Worte so gefährlich sind – die gelogenen und die wahren – , habe ich beschlossen, sie nicht mehr zu benutzen. Ich bin Pluto. Schweigend. Unerreichbar. Milliarden Meilen von allem entfernt, was ich zu kennen glaubte. « Tess hatte nie das Gefühl, wirklich dazuzugehören. Als sie eines Nachts am Computer ihres Vaters die Wahrheit über ihre Herkunft erfährt – nämlich dass er eben nicht ihr Vater ist – weiß sie auch, warum das so ist. Sie ist Pluto, aber ihre Eltern wollten einen Mars. Oder wenigstens eine Venus. Was soll Tess dazu noch sagen? Ihr fehlen die Worte. Und so schweigt sie. Schweigend sucht sie ihren richtigen Vater. Schweigend unterhält sie sich mit ihrem Plastikgoldfisch, Mister Goldfisch. Schweigend verliert sie ihre beste Freundin und findet einen neuen Seelenverwandten. Und sie gewinnt die allerwichtigste Erkenntnis überhaupt: nämlich, dass Schweigen Macht verleiht – aber Reden noch viel mehr. Ein großartiges literarisches Jugendbuch mit einer ganz eigenen Atmosphäre und einer wundervollen Erzählerin, die mit ihren klaren und poetischen Worten mitten ins Herz jeder Leserin trifft. Der neue Roman der Autorin von ›Meine Schwester lebt auf dem Kaminsims‹ und ›Ketchuprote Wolken‹.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

Inhabited Silence in Qualitative Research

Putting Poststructural Theory to Work

"Inhabited Silence in Qualitative Research" demonstrates, or -puts to work, - poststructural theory in the doing of qualitative research. Using this theoretical approach, the book proposes a data set lacking in the methodological literature, namely silence. It highlights the need for qualitative researchers not to dismiss silence as an omission or an absence of empirical materials, but rather to engage silence as meaningful and purposeful. This is an important book that should be read by researchers, teachers, and students."

The Attraction of Cinema to Opera

Cinema and opera have become intertwined in a variety of powerful and unusual ways. Vocal Apparitions tells the story of this fascinating intersection, interprets how it occurred, and explores what happens when opera is projected onto the medium of film. Michal Grover-Friedlander finds striking affinities between film and opera--from Lon Chaney's classic silent film, The Phantom of the Opera, to the Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera to Fellini's E la nave va. One of the guiding questions of this book is what occurs when what is aesthetically essential about one medium is transposed into the aesthetic field of the other. For example, Grover-Friedlander's comparison of an opera by Poulenc and a Rossellini film, both based on Cocteau's play The Human Voice, shows the relation of the vocal and the visual to be surprisingly affected by the choice of the medium. Her analysis of the Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera demonstrates how, as a response to opera's infatuation with death, cinema comically acts out a correction of opera's fate. Grover-Friedlander argues that filmed operas such as Zeffirelli's Otello and Friedrich's Falstaff show the impossibility of a direct transformation of the operatic into the cinematic. Paradoxically, cinema at times can be more operatic than opera itself, thus capturing something essential that escapes opera's self-understanding. A remarkable look at how cinema has been haunted--and transformed--by opera, Vocal Apparitions reveals something original and important about each medium.

Public Opinion and Political Participation in America

Over the past century, opinion polls have come to pervade American politics. Despite their shortcomings, the notion prevails that polls broadly represent public sentiment. But do they? In Silent Voices, Adam Berinsky presents a provocative argument that the very process of collecting information on public preferences through surveys may bias our picture of those preferences. In particular, he focuses on the many respondents who say they "don't know" when asked for their views on the political issues of the day. Using opinion poll data collected over the past forty years, Berinsky takes an increasingly technical area of research--public opinion--and synthesizes recent findings in a coherent and accessible manner while building on this with his own findings. He moves from an in-depth treatment of how citizens approach the survey interview, to a discussion of how individuals come to form and then to express opinions on political matters in the context of such an interview, to an examination of public opinion in three broad policy areas--race, social welfare, and war. He concludes that "don't know" responses are often the result of a systematic process that serves to exclude particular interests from the realm of recognized public opinion. Thus surveys may then echo the inegalitarian shortcomings of other forms of political participation and even introduce new problems altogether.
