Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 284 pages which are papers from writer 'John D Clark'. Globalization is one of the most politically charged issues of our time. This book aims to bridge the divide between its advocates and its critics, but, rather than trying to find middle ground, the author looks at globalization through the lens of poor people and poor countries, arguing for a different management of global changes that ensures everyone a share in its opportunities. His is a call for ethical globalization. An influential and globalizing civil society has a great opportunity to be a critical player - but this could be a brief window. Its advocacy largely pillories deficiencies in the system instead of promoting viable alternatives. The author seeks to change this by applying his experience from both sides of the ideological divide - working with NGOs, governments and the World Bank - to analyse the system's faults and suggest a fresh framework for transforming global relations and redressing injustices. 2014-10-14 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 328 pages which are papers from writer 'Cynthia M. Duncan'. First published in 1999, Worlds Apart examined the nature of poverty through the stories of real people in three remote rural areas of the United States: New England, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta. In this new edition, Duncan returns to her original research, interviewing some of the same people as well as some new key informants. Duncan provides powerful new insights into the dynamics of poverty, politics, and community change. "Duncan, through in-depth investigation and interviews, concludes that only a strong civic culture, a sense among citizens of community and the need to serve that community, can truly address poverty. . . . Moving and troubling. Duncan has created a remarkable study of the persistent patterns of poverty and power."—Kirkus Reviews "The descriptions of rural poverty in Worlds Apart are interesting and read almost like a novel."—Choice 2015-01-13 time of publication of the book, [-Yale University Press-]"

World's Apart

Original Synopsis

"World's Apart has a total of 62 pages which are papers from writer 'Sharon Felicia Acheampong'. No one was saying anything. No one was telling the two princes or any of the palace staff anything, and they were getting worried. It was around eleven PM when there was the sound of commotion coming from the room, then silence, then the anguished scream of a man whose heart had been torn out. Itzel immediately threw up. Something had gone awfully wrong, and most of the people who had heard could guess, but no one dared to vocalize it. A few minutes later, one of the doctors came out to tell them that Zora had given birth to twins, a boy and a girl, but she had died in the process. In less than a year, Kimora had lost two queens. Worlds Apart is a story about a king who gives up his throne when he gets heartbroken, a princess and a prince who never knew they were, twins who meet and do not realise they are related, and a best friend who helps to bring a broken family together. 2012-10-04 time of publication of the book, [-AuthorHouse-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 496 pages which are papers from writer 'James Riley'. Owen and Bethany try to find their way back to each other after the fictional and nonfictional worlds are torn apart in this fifth and final book in the New York Times bestselling series, Story Thieves—which was called a “fast-paced, action-packed tale” by School Library Journal—from the author of the Half Upon a Time trilogy. Bethany and Owen have failed. The villain they have come to know as Nobody has ripped asunder the fictional and nonfictional worlds, destroying their connection. Bethany has been split in two, with her fictional and nonfictional selves living in the separate realms. But weirdly, no one seems to mind. Owen—and every other nonfictional person—have lost their imaginations, so they can’t picture their lives any differently. Then Owen gets trapped in a dark, dystopian reality five years in the future, where nothing is needed more desperately than the power to imagine. Fictional Bethany is thrilled to be training with her father as his new sidekick, Twilight Girl—until she realizes that the fictional reality will fade away completely without the nonfictional world to hold it together. In this final installment of the genre-bending Story Thieves series, Owen and Bethany will be forced to risk everything to defeat Nobody and save multiple realities. 2018-03-20 time of publication of the book, [-Simon and Schuster-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 368 pages which are papers from writer 'David Plante'. The writer David Plante has kept a diary of his life among the artistic elite for over half a century. It is an extraordinary document, both deeply personal and a rare window onto disappearing worlds. This extracted memoir spans the 1980s, a period of exploration and growth for Plante and his lover Nikos Stangos, a partnership which will endure for forty years. David Plante and Nikos Stangos first made a life together in London in the mid-sixties, when as newcomers they were introduced by Stephen Spender to his circle, connections criss-crossing, dazzlingly, through the air of their adopted city, interconnecting so many admired figures. Now navigating worlds beyond London ? from a house-share with Germaine Greer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to a trip to Jerusalem with Philip Roth; from the loss of parents to the growing spectre of AIDS; and in New York, Umbria, Lucca, the Aegean and rural Ireland ? these are stories of expanding horizons and of a deepening and developing love: the challenges of monogamy, the strains of separation, of a growing maturity and awareness ? and of what it is to belong. Worlds Apart is a poignant, moving portrait of a relationship and a luminous evocation of a world of writers, poets, artists and thinkers. 2015-07-02 time of publication of the book, [-Bloomsbury Publishing-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 308 pages which are papers from writer 'Norman Geisler, William D. Watkins'. Those looking for a compendium of the major world views, written from a Christian perspective, need look no further. Comprehensive and readable, well organized and up to date, 'Worlds Apart' stands alone. After introducing the meaning and function of a world view, the authors explore the seven major world views of our day -- theism, atheism, pantheism, pantheism, deism, finite godism, and polytheism. They delineate the varieties within each view, analyze the beliefs of its major representatives, and outline and evaluate its basic tenets. The authors present the seven world views in such a way that one can compare and contrast these views. ÒIt is our hope,Ó they write, Òthat [readers] will carefully consider all the options and then decide, even if it means discarding the world view [they] now have.Ó In this revised edition the authors have updated the text and bibliography, rewritten several sections, and included suggested readings for each world view. Like the original edition, published in 1984, this volume contains a glossary of terms and an index of subjects and names. 2003-01-09 time of publication of the book, [-Wipf and Stock Publishers-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 176 pages which are papers from writer 'Chuck Bomar'. The life stage of 18-25-year-olds is completely different than it was in previous eras. In just one generation, we see contrasts that used to take two to three generations to surface. This massive shift has created frustration with older generations. Parents recognize this is a completely different world and struggle to relate. Others throw their arms up in bewilderment, assuming they’ll never understand. And many church leaders wish they’d “just grow up.” In this book, Chuck Bomar brings understanding, comfort, and direction to all of this. You’ll learn: -how the development of higher education has caused much of the separation between generations -the irreversible ways in which this generation has been impacted and how today’s college-aged person differs from the typical thoughts and values of older generations -the five major pursuits of college-aged people and why they pursue these areas Through profiles of college-aged people and testimonies of parents, you’ll explore in-depth issues college-age people face, how they process through them, and what influences their decisions so you can effectively minister to them. 2011-09-06 time of publication of the book, [-Zondervan/Youth Specialties-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 240 pages which are papers from writer 'Branko Milanovic'. We are used to thinking about inequality within countries--about rich Americans versus poor Americans, for instance. But what about inequality between all citizens of the world? Worlds Apart addresses just how to measure global inequality among individuals, and shows that inequality is shaped by complex forces often working in different directions. Branko Milanovic, a top World Bank economist, analyzes income distribution worldwide using, for the first time, household survey data from more than 100 countries. He evenhandedly explains the main approaches to the problem, offers a more accurate way of measuring inequality among individuals, and discusses the relevant policies of first-world countries and nongovernmental organizations. Inequality has increased between nations over the last half century (richer countries have generally grown faster than poorer countries). And yet the two most populous nations, China and India, have also grown fast. But over the past two decades inequality within countries has increased. As complex as reconciling these three data trends may be, it is clear: the inequality between the world's individuals is staggering. At the turn of the twenty-first century, the richest 5 percent of people receive one-third of total global income, as much as the poorest 80 percent. While a few poor countries are catching up with the rich world, the differences between the richest and poorest individuals around the globe are huge and likely growing. 2011-06-27 time of publication of the book, [-Princeton University Press-]"

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart: An Anthology of Russian Fantasy and Science Fiction has a total of 656 pages which are papers from writer 'Alexander Levitsky'. The famous volume with a compelling appeal to fantasy enthusiasts and anyone interested in Russian history. A constant thread woven throughout the history of Russian literature is that of fantasy and an escape from the bounds of realism. Worlds Apart is the first single-volume anthology that explores this fascinating and dominant theme of Russian literature--from its origins in the provincial folk tale, through its emergence in the Romantic period in the tales of Pushkin, Lermontov, and Turgenev, to its contemporary incarnation under the clouds of authoritarianism, revolution, mechanization, and modernization--with all-new translations of the key literary masterpieces that reveal the depth and ingenuity of the Russian imagination as it evolved over a period of tumultuous political, social, and technological upheaval. Alexander Levitsky, perhaps the world's foremost expert on this genre, has selected and provided engaging and informative introductions to the selections that simultaneously represent the works of Russia's best authors and reveal the dominant themes of her history. The authors range from familiar figures--Pushkin, Lermontov, Turgenev, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Bulgakov, and Bely--to writers practically unknown outside the Slavic world such as Derzhavin, Bulgarin, Kuprin and Pilniak. Worlds Apart is an awe-provoking anthology with a compelling appeal both to the fantasy enthusiast and anyone with an abiding interest in Russian history and culture. 2008-07-29 time of publication of the book, [-The Overlook Press-]"

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart: Modernity Through the Prism of the Local has a total of 288 pages which are papers from writer 'Daniel Miller'. Worlds Apart is concerned with one of the new futures of anthropology, namely the advances in technologies which r eate an imagination of new global and local forms. It also analyses studies of the consumption of these forms and attempts to go beyond the assumptions that consumption either localises or fails to effect global forms and images. Several of the chapters are written by anthropologists who have specialised in material culture studies and who examine the new forms, especially television and mass commodities, as well as some new uses of older forms, such as the body. The book also considers the ways in which people are increasingly not the primary creators of these images but have become secondary consumers. 2003-12-16 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 136 pages which are papers from writer 'Charles Muller, Beth Richards'. Beth Richards writes: "My poetry probably reflects the inside image of my thoughts-sometimes very deep thoughts. I write from the heart and sometimes when I'm in a reflective mood my poetry is serious and somewhat philosophical " This collection of poems is a result of Beth's suggestion to Charles Muller that they produce a book that combines their gifts. Beth says: "Charles and I have led two very different lives, and it shows in our writing-hence the title Worlds Apart. Apart from having been born in different hemispheres, we are two very different people, but we appear to be kindred spirits in many ways. (Both born under the star sign of Leo!)" The poems by Charles Muller are perhaps more startling, with jagged images and sentences that cut like broken glass, sometimes exposing the raw nerves of life. Many of these were composed in the context of Apartheid South Africa and recall the violence and injustices of those times. Beth and Charles are also artists, and the cover depicts a painting by each of the poet-paintings that highlight their contrasting worlds. 2008-04 time of publication of the book, [-iUniverse-]"

Worlds Apart

Original Synopsis

"Worlds Apart has a total of 266 pages which are papers from writer 'Patrick Dias, Aviva Freedman, Peter Medway, Anthony Par‚'. Worlds Apart: Acting and Writing in Academic and Workplace Contexts offers a unique examination of writing as it is applied and used in academic and workplace settings. Based on a 7-year multi-site comparative study of writing in different university courses and matched workplaces, this volume presents new perspectives on how writing functions within the activities of various disciplines: law and public administration courses and government institutions; management courses and financial institutions; social-work courses and social-work agencies; and architecture courses and architecture practice. Using detailed ethnography, the authors make comparisons between the two types of settings through an understanding of how writing is operative within the particularities of these settings. Although the research was initially established to further understanding of the relationships between writing in academic and workplace settings, it has evolved to examining writing as it is embedded in both types of settings--where social relationships, available tools, and historical, cultural, temporal, and physical location are all implicated in complex ways in the decisions people make as writers. Readers of this volume will discover that the uniqueness of each setting makes salient different aspects of writers and writing, resulting in complex, and potentially unsettling implications for writing theory and the teaching of writing. 2013-06-17 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"
