When young Margaret L. Smitherman receives a journal as a gift from her husband, she uses it to reflect on her future, not yet knowing what she wants to do with her life. Her writings find a purpose at a family gathering when she realizes that the men discuss war and politics while the women serve refreshments and share recipes. Suddenly, Margaret's years at school take on new meaning. In 1847, Margaret graduated from Oberlin College, a progressive school that allows women and people of color to attend at a time when few other schools do. Throughout her life, she continues to be profoundly influenced by the school, encouraged by her parents' support of education and intellectual pursuits. But more importantly, her mother and father teach her to think independently. In 1848, Margaret travels to Seneca Falls, New York, for the first women's rights convention. She reunites with old college friends who are now advocating for abolition, temperance, and women's rights. She returns home invigorated, prepared to participate in the fight to advance the rights of women. Author Mary Carol Farber spins a compelling tale of history, the strength and courage of women, and the undaunted tenacity of the human spirit.

Myth, Identity, and Conflict: A Comparative Analysis of Romanian and Serbian Textbooks, by Anamaria Dutceac Segesten, is an examination of how history and politics became entangled in Romania and Serbia. Segesten's findings confirm the presence of mythologized versions of the past in the history textbooks of both countries over the entire fifteen-year period studied (1992-2007), despite claims for professionalization of textbook-making. Ultimately, Myth, Identity, and Conflict, by Anamaria Dutceac Segesten, questions the alleged power of history textbooks to make a difference in ethnically divided societies prone to conflicts.

Transcendental History

... fact history does not belong to us; we belong to it.”23 In this connection, it is important to be aware that what we belong to is not something outer.

Transcendental History defends the claim that historicality is the very condition for human knowledge, and hence that human being is always strictly an historical being. This is a thesis vital to the present trajectory of European philosophy. Tracing its development from Kant and Hegel to Derrida and Agamben - in a tale of how transcendental and speculative philosophy gradually gave way to historical thinking in the shape of phenomenology, hermeneutics, and deconstruction - this book not only enriches our understanding of the history of philosophy, but also contributes to epistemology, the philosophy of history, and philosophical anthropology. Transcendental History also addresses itself to all those interested in the questions and controversies motivating contemporary European philosophy and its critical engagement with its past.

Conversations with Graham Swift is the first collection of interviews conducted with the author of the Booker Prize–winning novel Last Orders. Beginning in 1985 with Swift’s arrival in New York to promote Waterland and concluding with an interview from 2016 that appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, the collection spans Swift’s more than thirty-five-year career as a writer. The volume also includes interviews first printed in English as well as translated from the French or Spanish and covers a wide range of formats, from lengthier interviews published in standard academic journals, to those for radio, newspapers, and, more recently, podcasts. In these interviews, Graham Swift (b. 1949) offers insights into his life and career, including his friendships with other contemporary writers like Ted Hughes and the group of celebrated novelists who emerged in Britain during the eighties. With remarkable clarity, Swift discusses the themes of his novels and short stories: death, love, history, parent-child relationships, the power of the imagination, the role of storytelling, and the consequences of knowing. He also notes the influences, literary and personal, that have helped shape his writing career. While quite ordinary in his life and daily habits, Swift reveals his penetrating intellect and rich imagination—an imagination that can craft some of the most engaging and formally complex stories in the language.

In 20 short books, Penguin Classics brings you the new canon of great environmental works James Lovelock (b. 1919) is an independent scientist and father of the Gaia Hypothesis, which sees the Earth as a single self-regulating system that sustains all life, from the surface rocks and oceans to the atmosphere and humanity. Here he draws on decades of wisdom to lay out the history of our remarkable planet, to show that it is not ours to be exploited - and warns us that it is fighting back.

The aim of this thesis is to unfold the multilayered intersubjective experience of the author himself, a Chinese pastor. Samuel Ooi argues for a cultural-linguistic experience of shi as the locus at which the intersubjective experience takes place. To unfold this experience, the author identifies five key texts that are found in his intersubjective experience: Text A1: Shi; Text A2: Yizhuan; Text B1: Pauline notion of principalities and powers; Text B2: Pauline Texts I and II: Galatians and 1 Corinthians; and Text 0: Ooi's initial or seminal experience of shi. In dialogue with Michael Polanyi and Hans-Georg Gadamer, Ooi proposes that a double vision hermeneutic will help interpret the multilayered intersubjective relationships between texts and the subject. He argues that study of this intersubjective experience reveals a vital facet of Chinese Christian self, and significantly enhances the study of Chinese theology.

In the minds of many Christians today, the church is not holy; it is difficult. Yet J. Alexander Sider argues that it is precisely when the church acknowledges its many faults and frailties when it patiently confronts its own capacity to betray the gospel that its true holiness is made manifest. In To See History Doxologically Sider probingly examines John Howard Yoder s eschatology and ecclesiology in conversation with Oliver O Donovan, Ernst Troeltsch, Miroslav Volf, and others. Sider shows how Yoder s thought redefines the church s holiness not as something earned or possessed by its own virtue but as the ceaseless and ever-new gift of God throughout all time.

History Making History

This book recognizes that the postmodern "new historicism" leads to a value-neutral relativism and leaves theology with an impossible choice. Dean argues that the postmodern challenge is incoherent and ineffective unless it is reinterpreted in terms of its classical American roots. Before offering a third option, Dean defends the neopragmatism of Richard Rorty, Richard Bernstein, Nelson Goodman, Hilary Putnam, Cornel West, and Jeffrey Stout; the deconstructivism of Jacques Derrida and Mark Taylor; and the recent theology of Gordon Kaufman. The third option, opening up a new possibility for American theology, is the radical empiricism of William James and John Dewey and the precedent of the "Chicago School."

This book traces out the unfolding history of important discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics, and anchors our present understanding of the Universe within the findings and personalities of accomplished astronomers. They have used telescopes and instruments to extend our vision to places that cannot be seen with the unaided eye, discovered a host of unanticipated objects, found out how various parts of the night sky are related, and discovered that the Universe is larger, more complex, and older than has been previously thought. This comprehensive historical approach to the present state of astronomy is a unique aspect of the book.

The learned author has produced the work with the sole intent to grasp the real Indian civilizational and cultural postulates in the folds of Indian history. As history forms a colossal steep monumental wall with a crest of todayness, it becomes an uptill task to see the lower parts of this characteristic monument from the crest. To see the intended parts, one, brave like a historian, needs climb down with care and hardihood in the valley of such dark monument, to cheak, examine and observe the intended fact. In this work, the author painstakingly has found the truth about the Hindu sub-caste sudra, of which , members overwhelmed time and again against the set caste norms to be rulers and lay foundation of the magnificent dynasties an the Indian sub-continent. This work of History suggests many factual things and nullifies the caste myths-and contributes a lot to the dalits movements. It starts a new debate on the emancipation of castes, present day reservation to sub-castes, and a new perspective of caste system in India. Stands a work of immense value.
