Jesus the Mediator - William L. Brownsberger
ISBN: 9780813221199
In Jesus the Mediator, William L. Brownsberger offers an account of the human psychology assumed by the Second Person of the Trinity in light of its salvific significance. Instead of focusing directly on classical understandings of how salvation is accomplished, this book draws attention to the Person and human nature that soteriology must presuppose.

The Politics of Islamophobia - David Tyrer
ISBN: 9780745331324
Publication Date: 2013-11-08
Despite its emblematic place within contemporary racism and its increasingly important position in defining relations between states and ethnicised minorities, Islamophobia remains a contested, frequently unrecognised and largely under-theorised form of racism.The Politics of Islamophobia provides a definitive contribution to these debates, offering a theoretically sophisticated account which draws upon a series of substantive case studies to position Islamophobia as an expression of racialised governmentality.By taking into account connections across different national contexts, and by moving beyond the limiting framing of the war on terror which has dominated recent debates, this book offers a new perspective on the study of Islamophobia.

Tweets and the Streets - Paolo Gerbaudo
ISBN: 9780745332482
Publication Date: 2012-10-05
Tweets and the Streets analyses the culture of the new protest movements of the 21st century. From the Arab Spring to the 'indignados' protests in Spain and the Occupy movement, Paolo Gerbaudo examines the relationship between the rise of social media and the emergence of new forms of protest.Gerbaudo argues that activists' use of Twitter and Facebook does not fit with the image of a 'cyberspace' detached from physical reality. Instead, social media is used as part of a project of re-appropriation of public space, which involves the assembling of different groups around 'occupied' places such as Cairo's Tahrir Square or New York's Zuccotti Park.

The Ancient Mariner Speaks - Marion Stordy
ISBN: 9781552664711
Publication Date: 2012-03-01
Confronting how the number of children labeled with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has been increasing over the last 30 years, this investigation contends that the label itself does more harm than good. The study begins with a compelling and deeply personal narrative, written from the point of view of someone characterized as ADHD. Through an analysis using Foucault’s theories on truth, power, and knowledge, the argument depicts how the ADHD label forces child behavior—mainly in boys—that is seen as “disruptive” out of the larger continuum into the category of problem behavior, absolving adults and social institutions of any responsibility for encouraging diversity. The book claims that this pattern only serves to exacerbate the problem for such children, singling them out and excluding them from interaction with others in the classroom.

History Will Prove Us Right - Howard P. Willens
ISBN: 146830755X
Publication Date: 2013-10-31
On 22 November 1963, US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The events of that day have been the subject of debate for five decades. The Warren Commission published its findings the following year - Oswald acted alone - but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Warren assured that 'history will prove us right.' In this eye-opening account Howard P. Willens, one of the few surviving members of the Commission, sets out to prove just that. Drawn from rarely seen notes and journals, History Will Prove Us Right tells the complete story of the investigation.

Good Girls, Good Sex - Sonya Sharma
ISBN: 1552664384
Publication Date: 2012-01-01
Investigating what occurs when a woman’s identities as a Christian and an embodied sexual individual collide, this study draws from conversations with more than 30 Protestant women, exploring how both religious values and communities—as well as social class and race—shape women’s sexual experiences. In their stories, these women reflect on how they handle conflicts between their religious views and sexual desires, revealing how they satisfy those natural urges while simultaneously negotiating a conservative Christian message along with more liberal, secular morals.
