Gilman, Sander L.
The essays in this collection, written by a pioneering interdisciplinary scholar, deal with the roles of images in the construction of stereotypes and the categories of difference as represented in texts in high literature, in medical literature, in art from the last fin-de-si cle to our own. Intensely engaged in the cultural politics of everyday life and conscious of how texts reflect and shape our social practices, they deal primarily with representations and self-representations of Jews in the past one hundred years and focus on the question of the constructions of the Jew s body in art and literature. The title essay, Love + Marriage = Death: STDs and AIDS in the Modern World, however, studies the image of sexually transmitted disease from Shakespeare to Martin Amis. It sets the tone for an understanding of this collection as a book about Jews and their representation, but not as a special, isolated case. The first essay, the largely autobiographical Ethnicities: Why I Write What I Write, serves as an introduction to the collection.Previous owner's signature on ffep.

Keck, L. Robert
Robert Keck's new science of the collective human soul's evolutionary journey makes sense of current, world-wide paradigm shifts and faith-quakes, and it promotes our participation in spiritual emergence. Scientists, examining "Lucy's" ancient remains, learned much about how she lived, but nothing about what she valued in her heart. Keck's original "Deep-value Research", going beyond science, investigates the deep causal values that shape human cultures and determine why certain thought and behaviour become dominant. Despite our longing for stability and predictability, science suggests that the universe is not a steady-state reality. Keck's research suggests a similarity in the spiritual realm: change, evolution, and transformation are basic ingredients of the soul's history. Keck's model divides the soul's evolution into three stages. Epoch I, lasting from about 35,000 to 10,000 years ago, corresponds to "childhood". Epoch II, from 10,000 years ago to the present, is the soul's "adolescence." We are now experiencing the chaos of the transformation to Epoch III, our spiritual adulthood. Keck explains the unique confusion within which we live by identifying those spiritually adolescent values that are dying and those adult ones being born. "Questions for those on a quest", which conclude each chapter, encourage us to seek the meaning and purpose of our connections-to other people, to nature, and to the Spirit that creates, permeates, and sustains the universe. 292pp. N.B. Rear free end paper creased. D/J slightly marked and rubbed.

Wine, Sherwin T.
The celebration material in this book is primarily verbal. It is also strongly intellectual and ideological, as well as reflective and sentimental. The style rests on the conviction that celebration events can touch both the mind and the heart; the content rests on the conviction that reason and emotion, inspiration and integrity, humanism and Judaism, are not separate, but complementary. 439pp.

Cragg, Kenneth
This study explores the taxing question of whether Christ-Learning should be an ongoing process by presenting examples of the critical and personal learning undertaken by minds exercised with scholarship, ecclesiology, poetry, the novel and sexuality. While the responses to faith in Christ of the seven chosen figures Chr(45) Richard Hooker, John Henry Newman, Robert Browning, William Faulkner, Rudyard Kipling, Friedrich Nietzsche and Oscar Wilde Chr(45) are highly personal, it is the theme of "education", which was at the heart of every Messianic achievement, that throws up confrontations to the orthodox approach to faith. These individuals are eminently representative of biography wrestling with what the New Testament Scripture first understood. Their experiences can be signified in a New Testament play on words: "emathen apathen" Chr(45) "suffering they learned, learning they suffered". 279pp.
