This readable yet sophisticated survey of treaty-making between Native and European Americans before 1800, recovers a deeper understanding of how Indians tried to forge a new society with whites on the multicultural frontiers of North America-an understanding that may enlighten our own task of protecting Native American rights and imagining racial justice.

How taking Indigenous sovereignty seriously can help dismantle the structural racism encountered by other people of color in the United States Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law provides a timely analysis of structural racism at the intersection of law and colonialism. Noting the grim racial realities still confronting communities of color, and how they have not been alleviated by constitutional guarantees of equal protection, this book suggests that settler colonial theory provides a more coherent understanding of what causes and what can help remediate racial disparities. Saito attributes the origins and persistence of racialized inequities in the United States to the prerogatives asserted by its predominantly Angloamerican colonizers to appropriate Indigenous lands and resources, to profit from the labor of voluntary and involuntary migrants, and to ensure that all people of color remain “in their place.” By providing a functional analysis that links disparate forms of oppression, this book makes the case for the oft-cited proposition that racial justice is indivisible, focusing particularly on the importance of acknowledging and contesting the continued colonization of Indigenous peoples and lands. Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law concludes that rather than relying on promises of formal equality, we will more effectively dismantle structural racism in America by envisioning what the right of all peoples to self-determination means in a settler colonial state.

You wouldn't believe it, but . . . James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader, grew up mute. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. Albert Einstein was bullied mercilessly in school. Beethoven's mom almost aborted him. Life takes the strangest sharp turns--and sometimes, U-turns. Robert Petterson--popular speaker, storyteller, and author--has been a student for his entire life of what God is teaching us through those real-life U-turns. In this short book, he compiles amazing stories that teach lessons you won't easily forget. Each entry is written in the rest-of-the-story style popularized by Paul Harvey. Marvel at how God has used the lives of these ordinary people to change the course of human history. (Adapted from The One Year Book of Amazing Stories)

Among the various lines drawn between people in the church--male and female, young and old, black and white, rich and poor, Republican and Democrat--there is the line between the urban and the suburban. The stereotypes of the edgy, socially active, multicultural urban Christian and the middle-class, comfortable, upwardly mobile suburban Christian mix fact and fiction. Linking Arms, Linking Lives looks beyond stereotypes and makes a compelling case for partnership that crosses urban and suburban for effective ministry among the poor. Drawing from a growing network of development practitioners, pastors, and theologians, this book focuses on the experiences of partnership between urban and suburban entities to provide both theological foundations and practical guidelines for those who desire to partner effectively. All who want to find viable ways to help the poor will welcome this thoughtful and hope-filled book. Includes a Foreword by Noel Castellanos.

In Hybrid Constitutions, Vicki Hsueh contests the idea that early-modern colonial constitutions were part of a uniform process of modernization, conquest, and assimilation. Through detailed analyses of the founding of several seventeenth-century English proprietary colonies in North America, she reveals how diverse constitutional thought and practice were at the time, and how colonial ambitions were advanced through cruelty toward indigenous peoples as well as accommodation of them. Proprietary colonies were governed by individuals (or small groups of individuals) granted colonial charters by the Crown. These proprietors had quasi-sovereign status over their colonies; they were able to draw on and transform English legal and political instruments as they developed constitutions. Hsueh demonstrates that the proprietors cobbled together constitutions based on the terms of their charters and the needs of their settlements. The “hybrid constitutions” they created were often altered based on interactions among the English settlers, other European settlers, and indigenous peoples. Hsueh traces the historical development and theoretical implications of proprietary constitutionalism by examining the founding of the colonies of Maryland, Carolina, and Pennsylvania. She provides close readings of colonial proclamations, executive orders, and assembly statutes, as well as the charter granting Cecilius Calvert the colony of Maryland in 1632; the Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina, adopted in 1669; and the treaties brokered by William Penn and various Lenni Lenape and Susquehannock tribes during the 1680s and 1690s. These founding documents were shaped by ambition, contingency, and limited resources; they reflected an ambiguous and unwieldy colonialism rather than a purposeful, uniform march to modernity. Hsueh concludes by reflecting on hybridity as a rubric for analyzing the historical origins of colonialism and reconsidering contemporary indigenous claims in former settler colonies such as Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
Then, as they neared the finish line, they all linked arms and crossed it together.
And I came undone. ... I wanted so badly to be among those women on the track,

Which Everyday Idols Are Holding You Captive? FOOD. BUSYNESS. IMAGE. POSSESSIONS. ACHIEVEMENT. APPROVAL. CONTROL. PERFECTIONISM. ATTENTION. HAPPINESS. BEING RIGHT. "PERFECT" RELATIONSHIPS. INDEPENDENCE. REVENGE. SELF-PITY. LOVE. SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS. Like most women, you probably have a life filled with modern-day "idols" that attempt to steal your attention and affection from God. Innocent-seeming idols like chocolate, thighs of iron, and a home that rivals Martha Stewart's. Things you turn to first, before turning to God, when you long for comfort, affirmation, self-worth, or love. You know that God is the answer to all your needs. But then you have a fight with your husband, and that cheesecake in the fridge starts calling your name. You stay home from a women's retreat because your wardrobe is (literally) from the last century. You desperately wish that your house or hair or kids were as nice as your friend's (or anybody else's).

Navigating the world of disability services and programs is very frustrating and overwhelming. Regardless of your career status or educational background, when you learn that your child has a disability, you begin a journey that takes you into a life filled with strong emotions and difficult choices that affect the entire family. Another part of that journey is the interaction with many different professionals and specialists and the continuous need for information, supports, and services. I began the journey of emotions and navigating the world of disability supports and services in 2001 when my son Cory was born. He wasn’t expected to live to one day. I was told not to get my hopes up and that his brain hadn’t fully developed. Life as I knew it was over. I felt like my life came to an abrupt halt. My priorities and focus shifted. I was now a mother, advocate, advanced researcher, and full-time prayer warrior. I had to abandon my old way of thinking and depend on others for information and support as I learned to care for this special little boy. My son is now eleven years old, and I continue to navigate the world of disability to make sure Cory has the proper supports and services put in place and that he is included in his school and community. I have learned a whole new set of skills in order to be a good mother and effective advocate for Cory. I joined parents’ support groups to link with other families who could relate to my struggles, concerns, and frustrations. It was in those support groups that I learned about other resources and agencies that could help me better understand my son’s disabilities. I became part of a community of parent leaders who advocated not only for the rights of their children but for the rights of all children who lived with a disability. Parents of children with disabilities need to be encouraged to develop their potentials as leaders. They generally have the most consistent, knowledgeable ability on their child’s development. Training parents to be leaders allows them to build their confidence and the skills needed to advocate and work with the many professionals who provide the healthcare and educational services for their children to have successful outcomes and a good quality of life. I wrote this book to encourage parents, advocates, and caregivers who take care of children with disabilities to educate them on the importance of leadership development and empower them in their journey. Developing parent leadership is a continuous process. I believe it takes “parents training parents” and forming a support network to give them the opportunity for personal growth, reflection, and knowledge to gain skills to function in leadership roles that effect change for children with disabilities. It is so important for the “parent voice” to be heard. This book provides parents with the basic knowledge on developing leadership skills and gives them an understanding of diverse learning styles and leadership competencies. I am the parent of a child who is medically fragile. I know the feeling of being overwhelmed and alone. So I encourage all of you who are reading this book to get connected. Get involved with a parents’ support group, and register for trainings to help develop advocacy and leadership skills necessary to navigate the disability system. It’s not enough to just read about leadership; it takes getting involved and putting theory into practice.
