Fourteen-year-old Liyana Abboud would rather not have to change her life...especially now that she has been kissed, for the very first time and quite by surprise, by a boy named Jackson. But when her parents announce that Liyana's family is moving from St. Louis, Missouri, to Jerusalem -- to the land where her father was born -- Liyana's whole world shifts. What does Jerusalem hold for Liyana? A grandmother, a Sitti, she has never met, for one. A history much bigger than she is. Visits to the West Bank village where her aunts and uncles live. Mischief. Old stone streets that wind through time and trouble. Opening doors, dark jail cells, a new feeling for peace, and Omer...the intriguing stranger whose kisses replace the one she lost when she moved across the ocean.

From the internationally acclaimed author of Blankets (“A triumph for the genre.”—Library Journal), a highly anticipated new graphic novel. Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth—and frailty—of their connection. At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling. From the Hardcover edition.

Neural Regulation in the Vertebrate Endocrine System

Neuroendocrine Regulation

The objective of this volume is to provide recent information on neural regulation in the endocrine system in vertebrates. Classical studies have revealed that certain neurons synthesize and release chemical messengers into the blood vascular system. These neurons are endocrine devices that link the brain with the endocrine glands and other target organs. In vertebrates the hypothalamus is the seat of chemical coordination and integration of environmental and hormonal cues to modulate function of the pituitary, and, consequently, the functions of other endocrine glands. Information generated during the past few decades has resulted in profound alterations in the conceptual fabric of endocrinology. From the wealth of information that emerged on neuropeptides of the central nervous system, and connectivities of various brain centers, it has become clear that several extra-hypothalamic sites are also involved in regulation of hypophysial hormones. This volume is divided into five sections: brain regulation of pituitary, brain GnRH and regulation of pituitary in fish, brain control of growth hormone in fish and birds, brain regulation in mammalian luteinizing hormone, and neural control of other endocrines and the immune system. It is hoped that this volume will prove useful to researchers, teachers, and students involved in research and teaching in neuroendocrinology and comparative endocrinology.

Habibi, the love poems of the Moroccan poet Alim Maghrebi, is the latest in a series of David Solway's poetic 'translations,' dating from Andreas Karavis' Saracen Island and including Nesmine Rifat's Pallikari, Rhys Savarin's Reaching for Clear, Bartholomew the Englishman's The Properties of Things, and Dov Ben-Zamir'sNew Wine, Old Bottles, the latter still in manuscript. These are what Solway calls his 'ostensibles,' poetic voices and artifacts which he regards as constituting an extended trope or metaphor of the desire for transformation.

John Stuart Mill and the Ethic of Human Growth

In this well-researched, comprehensive study of J.S. Mill, Professor Habibi argues that the persistent, dominant theme of Mill's life and work was his passionate belief in human improvement and progress. Several Mill scholars recognize this; however, numerous writers overlook his 'growth ethic', and this has led to misunderstandings about his value system. This study defines and establishes the importance of Mill's growth ethic and clears up misinterpretations surrounding his notions of higher and lower pleasures, positive and negative freedom, the status of children, the legitimacy of authority, and support for British colonialism. Drawing from the entire corpus of Mill's writings, as well as the extensive secondary literature, Habibi has written the most focused, sustained analysis of Mill's grand, leading principle. This book will be useful to college students in philosophy and intellectual history as well as specialists in these fields.
