Who We Are

Original Synopsis

"Who We Are has a total of 368 pages which are papers from writer 'Derek Rubin'. This unprecedented collection brings together the major Jewish American writers of the past fifty years as they examine issues of identity and how they’ve made their work respond. E.L. Doctorow questions the very notion of the Jewish American writer, insisting that all great writing is secular and universal. Allegra Goodman embraces the categorization, arguing that it immediately binds her to her readers. Dara Horn, among the youngest of these writers, describes the tendency of Jewish writers to focus on anti-Semitism and advocates a more creative and positive way of telling the Jewish story. Thane Rosenbaum explains that as a child of Holocaust survivors, he was driven to write in an attempt to reimagine the tragic endings in Jewish history. Here are the stories of how these writers became who they are: Saul Bellow on his adolescence in Chicago, Grace Paley on her early love of Romantic poetry, Chaim Potok on being transformed by the work of Evelyn Waugh. Here, too, are Philip Roth, Cynthia Ozick, Erica Jong, Jonathon Rosen, Tova Mirvis, Pearl Abraham, Alan Lelchuk, Rebecca Goldstein, Nessa Rapoport, and many more. Spanning three generations of Jewish writing in America, these essays — by turns nostalgic, comic, moving, and deeply provocative- constitute an invaluable investigation into the thinking and the work of some of America’s most important writers.

Who We are

Original Synopsis

"Who We are has a total of 216 pages which are papers from writer 'Rudyard Griffiths'. Canadians have come to embrace their country as a "postmodern state”--a nation that downplays its history and makes few demands on its citizens, allowing them to find their allegiances where they may--in their region, their ethnic heritage or the language they speak. The notion of a Canadian national identity, with shared responsibilities and a common purpose, is considered out of date, even a disadvantage in a borderless world of transnational economies, resurgent regions and global immigration. In his timely and provocative book Who We Are, Rudyard Griffiths argues that this vision of Canada is an intellectual and practical dead end. Without a strong national identity, and robust Canadian civic values and engagement, the country will be hard pressed to meet the daunting challenges that lie ahead: the social costs of an aging population, the unavoidable effects of global warming and the fallout of a dysfunctional immigration system. What’s needed is a rediscovery of the founding principles that made Canada the nation it is today, core values that can form a civic creed for our own times. In a passionate call to revitalize our shared Canadian citizenship, Griffiths reminds us of who we are and what we’ve accomplished. 2009 time of publication of the book, [-Douglas & McIntyre-]"

More Radical Hermeneutics

Original Synopsis

"More Radical Hermeneutics has a total of 296 pages which are papers from writer 'John D. Caputo'. In these spirited essays, John D. Caputo continues the project he launched with Radical Hermeneutics of making hermeneutics and deconstruction work together. Caputo claims that we are not born into this world hard-wired to know Being, Truth, or the Good, and we are not vessels of a Divine or other omnipotent supernatural force. Focusing on how various contemporary philosophers develop aspects of this fragmented view of the life world in areas such as madness, friendship, democracy, gender, science, the "end of ethics," religion, and mysticism, this animated study by one of America's leading continental philosophers shakes the foundations of religion and philosophy, even as it gives them new life. 2000 time of publication of the book, [-Indiana University Press-]"

Who We Are

Original Synopsis

"Who We Are has a total of 224 pages which are papers from writer 'Elizabeth May'. In this marriage of memoir and manifesto, Elizabeth May reflects on her extraordinary life and the people and experiences that have formed her and informed her beliefs. The book traces her development from daughter of activist parents, to waitress and cook on Cape Breton Island, to law student, lawyer, and environmentalist, and finally to leader of the Green Party and first elected Canadian Green Member of Parliament. As a result of these disparate formative experiences, May believes that Canadians must rescue our threatened democracy, return to our traditional role as a world leader, develop a sustainable economy, and take immediate and decisive action to address the climate crisis. Who We Are is both a fascinating portrait of a remarkable woman and an urgent call to action. 2014-09-05 time of publication of the book, [-Greystone Books Ltd-]"

Who We Are Now

Original Synopsis

"Who We Are Now has a total of 304 pages which are papers from writer 'Sam Roberts'. A revealing view of America and its citizens at the dawn of a new century, by the author of the New York Times Notable Book Who We Are For more than two centuries, America has taken stock every decade, producing a statistical self-portrait of our population. In Who We Are Now, Sam Roberts identifies and illuminates the trends and social shifts changing the face of America today. America is in the midst of a fundamental transformation. The nation's complexion changed significantly over the twentieth century, creating more varied and intermingled identities, and with the baby boomers nearing retirement and their children entering college, the graying of America has been balanced, precariously, by the youth culture. And in the wake of welfare reform in the 1990s, the fate of the working poor has become all the more tenuous. Roberts masterfully weaves stories of individuals from all corners of the country alongside the data from the latest U.S. census, creating a compelling guided tour of the places, personalities, and politics that will shape America as the new century stretches before us. 2013-10-22 time of publication of the book, [-Times Books-]"

Ourselves

Original Synopsis

"Ourselves has a total of 136 pages which are papers from writer 'Frank Smith'. This book delves into how we come to terms with ourselves, with other people, and with the world in general. It is about how we come to be what we are, and to think the way we do. It is a book about influences on this process. A particular influence to which Smith gives central consideration is language, not just in terms of the communicative networks in which it engages us--the “information” that presents itself to us--but in the largely unsuspected framework for thought that lies within language itself. He also considers deeply the role of technology. This is a book of description, not of explanations--these are two quite different intellectual territories. Smith writes about what can be observed, not philosophized about. Thus he does not discuss the inner workings of the human brain. His claim is that what he is interested in--thinking, learning, understanding, remembering--have never been found in the brain. The aim is to describe the scope and limits for how we can be seen to think, learn, understand, and remember--but not to “explain” such behavior by recourse to hypothetical inner entities. Ourselves speaks especially to educators. It outlines the possibilities and limitations inherent in all of us. It delineates who we are, but also stresses that no two people are the same, that what we become depends on our journeys in life and the people we encounter on the way. The formal part of learning that is called education is particularly sensitive to the role of people who organize critical experiences for us, our teachers. The brief summaries at the end of each chapter reinforce and highlight points that are of particular relevance to teachers. Researchers, professionals, and graduate students across the fields of literacy education, psychology of reading, learning theory, human learning, educational psychology, and psycholinguistics will find this book compelling. 2013-05-13 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Who We Are

Original Synopsis

"Who We Are has a total of 76 pages which are papers from writer 'Herbert Spohn'. Herbert Spohn’s poetry is rooted in his life experiences. In his collection of free verse, Spohn illuminates elements of the human condition, such as romantic love, identity, aging, death, and childhood in post–World War I Germany. Spohn, an émigré from Nazi Germany and decorated World War II veteran, relies on both his personal and professional backgrounds to share his unique reflections on life. With a style that is at times warm and lyrical, analytical and searing, and sensual and thought-provoking, Spohn encourages others to look inward and rediscover emotions about such relatable subjects as falling in love, the betrayal of an aging body, and the pain of loss. Who We Are is a poignant and sophisticated collection of poetry that shares one man’s reflections as he looks back on an imperfect, yet fulfilling, life. Words float at random arrayed in patterns on the surface. Meanings they seem to yield seduce us readily into belief. When they disaggregate we do not know we are betrayed. Misled by ineluctable formations, we walk in truth until we fall. Words can lead us into regions where our pain resides. Yet they can lift us into ecstasy, and bring us healing love. 2013-02-05 time of publication of the book, [-iUniverse-]"

Synaptic Self

Original Synopsis

"Synaptic Self has a total of 416 pages which are papers from writer 'Joseph LeDoux'. In 1996 Joseph LeDoux's The Emotional Brain presented a revelatory examination of the biological bases of our emotions and memories. Now, the world-renowned expert on the brain has produced with a groundbreaking work that tells a more profound story: how the little spaces between the neurons—the brain's synapses—are the channels through which we think, act, imagine, feel, and remember. Synapses encode the essence of personality, enabling each of us to function as a distinctive, integrated individual from moment to moment. Exploring the functioning of memory, the synaptic basis of mental illness and drug addiction, and the mechanism of self-awareness, Synaptic Self is a provocative and mind-expanding work that is destined to become a classic. 2003-01-28 time of publication of the book, [-Penguin-]"

Who We Are in Christ

Original Synopsis

"Who We Are in Christ has a total of 115 pages which are papers from writer 'Joe McIntyre'. Many in the Church today struggle with a sense of unworthiness and inadequacy. They are aware of all their weaknesses and shortcomings. They have very little confidence toward God because they think He regards them in the light of their failures, or, perhaps we should, the darkness that yet remains in their performance. God has changed the nature of man! The greatest miracle that God does is the New Birth. God, our Father, takes out of us the nature that was antagonistic to Him by sending it to the cross with Jesus, then makes alive together with Him in His resurrection. “Old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new. And all things are of God” (2 Cor. 5:17, 18). This book points the believer to the liberating truths surrounding what our Father has done for us through the Finished Work of Christ. Who and what we are is now perfectly acceptable to our Father. Righteousness is His gift to us. We are His workmanship, recreated in Christ. We have entered into the Reality of our Eternal identity in Christ. 2013-08-26 time of publication of the book, [-BookBaby-]"

Who We Are

Original Synopsis

"Who We Are has a total of pages which are papers from writer 'Robert H. Wiebe'. How did educated Westerners make an enemy of an inspiration that has changed the lives of billions? Why is nationalism synonymous with atavism, fanaticism, xenophobia, and bloodshed? In this book, Robert Wiebe argues that we too often conflate nationalism with what states do in its name. By indiscriminately blaming it for terrorism, ethnic cleansing, and military thuggery, we avoid reckoning with nationalism for what it is: the desire among people who believe they share a common ancestry and destiny to live under their own government on land sacred to their history. For at least a century and a half, nationalism has been an effective answer to basic questions of identity and connection in a fluid world. It quiets fears of cultural disintegration and allows people to pursue closer bonds and seek freedom. By looking at nationalism in this clearer light and by juxtaposing it with its two great companion and competitor movements--democracy and socialism--Wiebe is able to understand nationalism's deep appeal and assess its historical record. Because Europeans and their kin abroad monopolized nationalism before World War I, Wiebe begins with their story, identifying migration as a motive force and examining related developments in state building, race theory, church ambition, and linguistic innovation. After case studies of Irish, German, and Jewish nationalism, Wiebe moves to the United States. He discusses America's distinctive place in transatlantic history, emphasizing its liberal government, cultural diversity, and racism. He then traces nationalism's spread worldwide, evaluating its adaptability and limits on that adaptability. The state-dominated nationalism of Japan, Turkey, and Mexico are considered, followed by Pan-Africanism and Nigeria's anticolonial-postcolonial nationalism. Finally, Wiebe shows how nationalism became integrated into a genuinely global process by the 1970s, only to find itself competing at a disadvantage with god- and gun-driven alternatives. This book's original answers to imperative questions will meet with deep admiration and controversy. They will also change the terms on which nationalism is debated for years to come. 2018-06-05 time of publication of the book, [-Princeton University Press-]"

Original Synopsis

"The Leadership Ellipse: Shaping How We Lead by Who We Are (Large Print 16pt) has a total of 334 pages which are papers from writer 'Robert A. Fryling'. Everyone in a position of responsibility knows the tension of leadership. It may be between tasks or people, money or mission, the present or the future. One often neglected tension is between our inner spiritual longings and the outward needs of the group we lead.But we need not feel forced to choose between the two. Leadership has more in common with an ellipse with two focal points than a bull's-eye with a single target. The Leadership Ellipse is designed to help Christian leaders embrace both halves of the tension--our internal relationship with God and our external relationship with others--to find a truly authentic, integrated way to lead.If you find yourself in a lonely, isolated place of leadership, this book can be your companion. If you find yourself longing to lead in a way that is truly Christian, this book can be your guide. And if you are simply exhausted, then this book can offer you a new way to find refreshment. There is life beyond the bull's-eye. 2011-03 time of publication of the book, [-ReadHowYouWant.com-]"
