Neste livro encontram-se três tradições intelectuais: o judaísmo libertário de cultura alemã, o Romantismo de inspiração socialista de um grupo de historiadores e cientistas sociais britânicos e, last but not least, um marxismo especificadamente latino-americano, forjado nas dinâmicas histórico-sociológicas da região que se estende de Buenos Aires a Havana.
In 1968, Nina Ritter returns from her junior year abroad at Reading University, England to New York, where things have radically changed. Her friends, The Whole Sick Crew, are wilder now. Their ringleader, Aviva, has joined a rock band, and they are all experimenting with sex and drugs. Nina, still in love with the poetic Welsh boyfriend she had to leave behind, is both attracted and repelled by this new world. It takes some new friends - Ruth, a committed Hispanic teacher, Billy, a dancer struggling with the specter of Vietnam, and especially Floyd, a brilliant Black activist - to force Nina herself to change from a self-involved romantic to a socially responsible woman. (for adults and mature teens)
Er verandert veel in de kerk: er wordt geëxperimenteerd, gepionierd en gediscussieerd. Hierdoor heerst er in veel gemeentes verwarring als het gaat om de liturgie. Althans dat is de stelling die de Protestantse Kerk ertoe bracht om liturgie op haar agenda te zetten. Dit boek is bedoeld als gespreksboek voor predikanten, kerkenraden en gemeenteleden. De auteur is o.a. hoogleraar liturgiewetenschap aan de Vrije Universiteit. Hij beschrijft de protestantse liturgie, licht de achtergronden toe en laat zien uit welke verschillende tradities de protestantse liturgie wordt gevoed.
Figli dello stesso padre, ma di due donne diverse, Germano ed Emilio si rivedono dopo un lungo silenzio. Sono diversissimi, accomunati unicamente dall'amore insoddisfatto per il padre Giovanni, una figura possente, passionale ed egocentrica, che ha abbandonato la madre di Germano perché la sua nuova donna aspettava un figlio, Emilio, per poi abbandonare poco dopo anche lei come tutte le altre donne della sua vita. Germano, pur essendo sempre stato il preferito del padre, non ha mai perdonato al fratello minore di essere la causa del divorzio dei genitori. Emilio, cresciuto sapendo di essere il figlio non voluto, ha sempre cercato, invano, l'affetto del padre e del fratello. Nei pochi giorni che trascorreranno insieme, le antiche rabbie e il richiamo del sangue riemergeranno furiosi.
Woody Guthrie spent his life putting into words and music what the rest of America was thinking. He roamed from coast to coast and captured the despair of those displaced by the Great Depression and the dust bowl, eulogized workers, and celebrated the great natural beauty of America.
