Living in the Shadows of a Rich and Sick Society is a chilling reality depicting the rising level of violence among teens, increased alcohol and drug abuse, and the continuous exploitation of children, which has become a widespread phenomena that has developed into a scandalous situation in our homes, schools, communities, and that all too often ends up in many grave yards. The spiral of youth problems and issues has created challenges for our schools, the police, the courts and our neighborhoods. It is my belief that solutions to most of these problems are no longer a local matter. Our government must establish a national new team philosophy and commitment to address the physical, social, economical, psychological and technological problems of our youth in our changing world. It is my belief that the social problems of teens, youth violence, and miss education will continue to become major issues for a very long time unless some immediate and drastic actions are implemented. In spite of the advancement of technology and the achievements in education, businesses, government, and faith institution, there is no single source within our societies that is more important that is in danger than the foundation of family The day break of a new culture is at hand in which the youth culture must be taken very seriously. It is time for a cultural make over. Our civilize society can no longer wait for an early afternoon break. In a rich republic like ours, we can no longer side step our civic responsibilities of knowing that the foundation of the family is in danger. The new day is now. Tomorrow is not promised. Our civilized society can no longer wait for an early afternoon. Immediate action is need to address the black sheep attitude of this nation. Our young people are restless. They have been awakened to the misgivings of their adult counterparts. Do as I say, but not as 1 do. There is a silent revolution taking place in our youth culture of internet forums to challenge our institutions, may be for good or for evil actions. However, soon they will be no more silent in the outcome. The youth population must be taken very serious concerning their aggressive disobedience to parents, their uncaring attitudes towards their peers and civic disorder to institutions Government, both state and local jurisdictions, will need to reassert their methods in developing regional strategies and collective programs that at times will call for a national approach for an effective comprehensive solution to counteract the silent psychopathic nature that are taking hold of our society. It is quite evident from my experience of working in schools, the community and the correctional institutions that violent behavior by youth is very serious and extreme and must be corrected immediately. In times like these, someone must be able to speak about the wrongs of government without fear and limitations. The voice of the sick, lame and the poor must be represented in all chambers of society. As we look around to the greed and corruptions, the crimes, the abuse and violence we can see a decaying state of affairs crashing down with shattering forces ready to destroy the family and our learning institutions. Needless to say, most families are not equipped to keep pace with increasing technological changes that are taking place. The level of advertisement and marketing techniques have cast a double shadow in which the haves are joining the haves and the have nots. Living in the shadows of a rich and sick society is an attempt to look at the five major institutions of civilization with a spiritual vision of hope and institutional reconciliation. A vision where the institutions of the family/home, schools, places of worship, commerce and government win dream new dreams for equitable action and just resources and services, to reverse then ever ending spiral of unrest if we fail to addressing the needs of our future generation.

Anne Griffiths originally went to Botswana to establish a university course in family law. But independent fieldwork in Botswana convinced her of the central role of the traditional customary legal system that stands alongside the colonial common law of courts and magistrates she was examining in her course. In the first comparative work on these two systems, Griffiths shows how the structure of both legal institutions is based on power and gender relations that heavily favor males. Griffiths's analysis is based on careful observation of how people actually experience the law as well as the more standard tools of statutes and cases familiar to Western legal scholars. She explains how women's access to law is determined by social relations over which they have little control. In this powerful feminist critique of law and anthropology, Griffiths shows how law and custom are inseparable for Kwena women. Both colonial common law and customary law pose comparable and constant challenges to Kwena women's attempts to improve their positions in society.

Women in the Shadows discusses the biographies of five brilliant and talented women born in the Austro-Hungarian Empire: Mileva Einstein-Maric, Margarete Jeanne Trakl, Lise Meitner, Milena Jesenská, and Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky. Charles S. Chiu creates «a narrative against forgetting, as a small step out of darkness» by writing about these women's accomplishments, which were overshadowed by those of the famous men in their lives. Edith Borchardt's translation brings this narrative to a wider audience. Women in the Shadows will interest scientists and scholars in the humanities as well as the general reader. The women portrayed represent various fields - mathematics, physics, music and literature, journalism, and architecture - making Women in the Shadows suitable for courses on the history of science, German and Austrian studies, as well as women's studies.

Wayang kulit, or shadow puppetry, connects a mythic past to the present through public ritual performance and is one of most important performance traditions in Bali. The dalang, or puppeteer, is revered in Balinese society as a teacher and spiritual leader. Recently, women have begun to study and perform in this traditionally male role, an innovation that has triggered resistance and controversy. In Women in the Shadows, Jennifer Goodlander draws on her own experience training as a dalang as well as interviews with early women dalang and leading artists to upend the usual assessments of such gender role shifts. She argues that rather than assuming that women performers are necessarily mounting a challenge to tradition, “tradition” in Bali must be understood as a system of power that is inextricably linked to gender hierarchy. She examines the very idea of “tradition” and how it forms both an ideological and social foundation in Balinese culture. Ultimately, Goodlander offers a richer, more complicated understanding of both tradition and gender in Balinese society. Following in the footsteps of other eminent reflexive ethnographies, Women in the Shadows will be of value to anyone interested in performance studies, Southeast Asian culture, or ethnographic methods.

When middle-aged mother of three Francie Newburg goes to visit her doctor, she tells her she must lose weight. Francie begins a daily, early-morning walking regimen that sends her walking and watching through her little town of Shady View, Ohio. One day, on her morning walk, she becomes a hero when she rescues a man trapped in an abandoned building. Now a local celebrity, Francie is soon approached by the big guns in town. The Society for the Beautification of Shady View likes to keep things tidy. They plant flowers where flowers are needed, and they keep an eye on outsiders. Francie joins the society, and it feels good to give back to her community. Even so, Francie’s observations soon lead to trouble for Lanie and Bill Blau, owners of the With or Without Café. Lanie and Bill like giving second chances. By hiring Paul Santone, a waiter with anger management issues and a criminal background, the restaurant becomes a target for the Society. When Lanie and Bill refuse to fire Paul, tension escalates, and the lives of everyone associated with the café become endangered. The Society’s efforts to beautify the town may ruin lives, and Francie’s helpful nature may prove to be the source of serious trouble—but it’s never too late for compassion.

The military toll of World War I is widely known: millions of Britons were mobilised, many thousands killed or wounded, and the landscape of British society changed forever. But how was the conflict experienced by the people of Surrey on the home front? Surrey Heritage’s project Surrey in the Great War: A County Remembers has, over the four-year centenary commemoration, explored the wartime stories of Surrey’s people and places. The project’s discoveries are here captured through text, case studies and images. This book chronicles the mobilisation of Surrey men, the training of foreign troops in the county, objection to military service, defence against invasion, voluntary work and fundraising, the experiences of women and children, shortages, industrial supply to the armed forces and the commemoration of Surrey’s dead. Drawing heavily on the rich archives of Surrey Heritage, it is an engaging exploration of a county in the shadow of the first globalised war between industrialised nations.

Killer in the Shadows is the story of a young man wrongly accused of murder. It is a travesty of justice when and innocent man is sent to prison. He had to endure the horrors of life on Death Row, while the real killer got away with murder. It all started the summer of 1984, in Miami Dade County, in a business district, off 68th. Street in West Hialeah. The sound of gunfire disrupted the stillness of the night... When it was over, one man laid dead, another one, critically injured, and the third one, was arrested and charged with the crimes. It was the prelude of the ordeal to come for the accused young man. A web of lies, jealousy, hate and revenge was weaved around him, with the purpose of incriminate him and separate him from the woman he loved. He was tried, convicted and sentenced to die in Floridas electric chair, on the testimony of an unscrupulous eyewitness, who was lying, with the complicity of the prosecutorfor personal gains... The other two witnesses to the crime couldnt testify on his behalf... The young man sat on Death Row many years, hoping and praying that the truth would prevail and hed be exonerated. Throughout those desperate times, plagued by a horrendous nightmare, living waiting to die... he was sustained by the love of his family and friends. They stood by him, unconditionally, believing in his innocenceamong them the wife of the murdered man and a whistling ghost, who gave him hope in his worse moments of hopelessness. But most of all by the three courageous men, who never gave up on him: his lawyer, who kept halting the state from executing him... the detective, who kept looking for the killer in the shadows... and the priest, who kept praying for a miracle. Six year later, the young man became despondent. Every appeal was denied, the evidence that surfaced turned out to be a dead end and the only witness left was about to die... Under those circumstances, he decided to end it allthere was nothing more they could do for him. He was ready to face his fate.... He was doing it for his family and friendshe wanted to set them free from their suffering... Once he was gone, they could go on with their lives and he would only be a sad memory. A date was set for his execution... In the midst of all this, a woman from his past, came into the picture. She teamed up with the priest and his wife and together they were going to right the wrongs people do. Faith, courage and perseverance set the stage for a confrontation that had started three decades ago in another country... That event tore two families apart and changed their lives, drastically. Now, it was time for the final struggle: the war between the forces of good and evil... The outcome would determine if the young man lived or died... and it would reveal the truth behind a great deceit.
For two years, she worked day and night in three local restaurants, filling every position and continuing to learn 'on the job'. In the meantime, the couple divorced: 'He wanted me to stay in the shadows, at home.

How does food restore the fragmented world of migrants and the displaced? What similar processes are involved in challenging, maintaining or reinforcing divisions between groups coexisting in the same living place? Food Identities at Home and on the Move examines how ‘home’ is negotiated around food in the current worldwide context of uncertainty, mobility and displacement. Drawing on empirical approaches to heritage, identity and migration studies, the contributors analyse the relationship between food and the various understandings of home and dwelling. With case studies on sushi around the world, food as heritage in the Afghan diaspora and Mexican foodways in Chicago, these chapters offer novel readings on the convergence of food and migration studies, the anthropology of space and place and the field of mobility by focusing on how entangled stories of food and home are put on display for constructing the present and imagining the future.

Using Arabic-language sources that have never before been studied or analyzed, Max Weiss paints a nuanced picture of sectarianism in Lebanon under the French Mandate. He demonstrates that sectarianism evolved long before the phenomenon known as “political Shi’ism.” This groundbreaking and deeply researched book is not merely narrative history; it also incorporates some of the latest critical theory about religious modernity and colonialism. Weiss illustrates the power of sectarianism as both a conceptual category and as a set of practices which can be a force for good and positive change as well as for division and destruction. By foregrounding historical forces that shape and direct sectarianism, he also shows how dimensions of sectarianism that no longer serve a society can be overcome with time.

A ghost has inhabited the Oval Office since 1945 -- the ghost of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR's formidable presence has cast a large shadow on the occupants of that office in the years since his death, and an appreciation of his continuing influence remains essential to understanding the contemporary presidency. This new edition of In the Shadow of FDR has been updated to examine Bill Clinton's presidency, including possible parallels between Hillary Clinton and Eleanor Roosevelt. Concluding with an analysis of the 2000 presidential campaign, William E. Leuchtenburg assesses the influence FDR's legacy is likely to continue to have in the new century.
