Leading authorities present the latest cutting edge research on state judicial elections. Starting with recent transformations in the electoral landscape, including those brought about by U.S. Supreme Court rulings, this volume provides penetrating analyses of partisan, nonpartisan, and retention elections to state supreme courts, intermediate appellate courts, and trial courts. Topics include citizen participation, electoral competition, fundraising and spending, judicial performance evaluations, reform efforts,attack campaigns, and other organized efforts to oust judges. This volume also evaluates the impact of judicial elections on numerous aspects of American politics, including citizens’ perceptions of judicial legitimacy, diversity on the bench, and the consequences of who wins on subsequent court decisions. Many of the chapters offer predictions about how judicial elections might look in the future. Overall, this collection provides a sharp evidence-based portrait of how modern judicial elections actually work in practice and their consequences for state judiciaries and the American people.

We have already come across this mythical beast in an earlier theme (Rites and rituals: how the butcher became the prime minister!) when we looked at the character yang (“sheep”) which is linked with the notion of justice.

Mind Warp 20 20

Mind Warp 20 20

JUSTICE. On parchment plain as all could see I wrote my thoughts to set me free. Yet they remained trapped by line in words of limitation from my mind. By feelings that I could not say and by this form bring out that way.

In Mind Warp 20/20 (After Shock), his fifth volume of published poetry, Richard D. Kydd JR. shows once again the wide breadth of his perspective. Just when poems such as the street-wise A Fool's Way and the tragically cynical Crack Down convinces you his vision is bleak, he surprises you with the optimistic spirituality of Spirit in Flight, or the haunting imagery of Life of Its Own. Kydd's work is full of seemingly contradictory surprises. Many of his poems deal with apparently helpless struggles and situations, yet there is an undercurrent of humor that shows the poet's maturity and acceptance of difficult circumstances. The facetious frustration of Meter Beater transitions smoothly to the still funny but savage reaction to unemployment of Job Hunter. He swings with ease from the raunchy physical humor of Free Style to the romantic spirituality of Intertwined. Searingly realistic but tempered with deep compassion and a true awareness of the beauty of humanity, this collection of Kydd's work reveals him to be a champion of the disadvantaged, and a mature observer of life's troubles and rewards.

This devotional is a journey with Jesus across the pages of the Gospels. It is a contemplative, bible study guide into the life and love of Jesus Christ. As a spiritual formation book for individual use, or for groups, this book also provides a biblical resource for the novel, God in Sandals. Through the author's comments and reflective questions, readers are ushered into the ancient Christian practice of meditative prayer and journaling-to imagine and reflect upon the mystery of Christ's person-and his love. Readers are given many thoughts to ponder that awaken us to the meaning of Christ's life. Through imagined "eyewitness" accounts of those who knew Jesus, we experience him too. As we "walk" with Jesus through his life-we see him with new eyes and we understand that God is with us, and that he came that we might intimately know him. A free, printable group leader's guide is available on the author's website at

This book showcases the important, but often understudied, work of Nigerian women playwrights. As in many spheres of life in Nigeria, in literature and other creative arts the voices of men dominate, and the work of women has often been sidelined. However, Nigerian women playwrights have made important contributions to the development of drama in Nigeria, not just by presenting female identities and inequalities but by vigorously intervening in wider social and political issues. This book draws on perspectives from culture, language, politics, theory, orality and literature, to shine a light on the engaged creativity of women playwrights. From the trail blazing but more traditional contributions of Zulu Sofola, through to contemporary postcolonial work by Tess Osonye Onwueme, Julie Okoh, and Sefi Atta, to name just a few, the book shows the rich variety of work being produced by female Nigerian dramatists. This, the first major collection devoted to Nigerian women playwrights, will be an important resource for scholars of African theatre and performance, literature and women’s studies.
