Where today is a specific, original and stable basis for a Political order to be found? What does the human dignity mean in the midst of the general crises of values? In the face of the ambivalent achievements of modernity and enlightenment, do the values of Christianity which until now have been regarded as the objective norm fail in its contact with the primal culture and the culture of the African communities? Where in this classes are the weakening and strengthening and specific challenges of this African People? This field of conflict must not only be described, but above all to ask about new opportunities to get out of the crisis of the value of human dignity in the Igbo society of Southeastern Nigeria. Ezenwas work seeks and aids understanding, using the facility of examining the subject of dignity in Igbo culture to throw light that casts much farther than the subject matter, begging for further inquiry into other complementary aspects of the culture. In other to achieve this, interdisciplinary research was needed.

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE AND HIS POUND OF FLESHIt was a scandal and a cartoon in the tabloids expressed it best:"A man in a tuxedo stuffed with bills is placing a bag of gold on a scale while a woman in a scant negligee places a baby on its opposite scale. To add insult to injury, the woman is still breast-feeding the infant adding precious weight to its value."So the world mocks the immoral contract between an entrepreneur and a dancer. Intent on creating an heir for his empire, Anthony Merchant hires Penny Browning to have his child. Set against the backdrop of greed and hypocrisy, these two unhappy people struggle with their choices and conscience. Their artificial relationship is strained. Mistrust and prejudices undermine their judgments. Throughout the action, emotions clash: sex and love; ambition and responsibility; pride and faith. Only in the end, when nearly all is lost and secrets are revealed, do they recognize the true value of all they possess-in the miracle of life.Satiric and shocking, Anthony Merchant is a search for values and permanence amid the relative ethics of the times.

The Bristle Merchants Daughter: about the book John Salinsky wanted to find out more about his mother's life. She was born in 1902, the first child of parents who had emigrated from Eastern Europe in search of a better life and freedom from fear. She tried to become a doctor at a time when women doctors were unusual. She did not succeed, but her three sons all became doctors. She suffered from depression as a young married woman and had psychoanalysis with one of Sigmund Freud's early followers in London. She brought up her family in Leeds and died at the age of 96, having lived through nearly the whole of the twentieth century. Apart from a few unusual features it was 'an ordinary life'. But ones relationship with ones mother is never ordinary. In this biography, John Salinsky begins by using his imagination to picture the life of his young grandparents in Tsarist Russia. He traces his mother's girlhood and her life as a young wife and parent up to the point of his own birth in 1941. From here on he blends imagination with memory and inquiry, trying to make sense of the complex emotions that bind a mother and her son in love and conflict. His description of the closeness they achieved in her final years makes moving reading.
