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.
Hip-hop is creating an expanding ministerial and spiritual movement that is changing the socio-historical landscape on a national and global level. From the streets of its birthplace in the South Bronx to the barrios of Colombia in South America; Hip-hop is helping to create sacred spaces that are providing purpose to our marginalized youth and young adult street populations. Beyond the Four Walls: The Rising Ministry and Spirituality of Hip-hop serves as both an autobiographical and ethnographical journey of my love and experiences with Hip-hop as a professor, youth minister and artist. I invite the reader to explore my outlook on Hip-hop, which reaches far beyond the scope of its music, commercialization, and "hood life." Instead, it takes another look at the unprecedented impact that Hip-hop continues to have in both our secular and spiritual communities. Because of its ongoing commitment to community organizing, activism, social justice and education, Hip-hop is worthy to be called a 21st Century socio-political, theological and spiritual movement, akin to that of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ghandi, Mohammed, Abraham, Archbishop Oscar Romero, and most notably in this book, Jesus Christ and Paul the Apostle.
SURVIVING DIVORCE: A Divine Love Story " ‘A Divine Love Story’ is not a subtitle you expect to find for a book describing the aftermath of divorce.
Divorce seems like the very antithesis of a love story. But when I think about that incredibly difficult time; the one thing that stands out most as I look back, is the enduring love and tenderness of my Lord. Therefore, although this book alludes to the end of a love story between a man and a woman, it also marks a new beginning. The beginning of me recognizing that the God I served was not just up in the sky looking down, an absently benevolent God. He is ‘El Roi’ The God who sees me (Genesis 16:13). I came face to face with a God who is caring and present in all the vicissitudes of life – just as interested in the life-altering events as He is in the small details. A love story is about as true a description as I could give to my experience because it accurately describes the kind of attention and care and unconditional love that every girl dreams of finding in a lifelong partner; and it portrays the fledgling romance that began there on my knees as I poured out my broken heart...."

Een dure eed (1891) behoort samen met De twistappel (1904) en Een revolverschot (1911) tot Virginie Lovelings bekendste romans. Alle drie de verhalen kunnen worden gezien als psychologische romans.
Met de roman Een dure eed verwierf Virginie Loveling officiële erkenning en het boek werd bekroond met de Vijfjaarlijkse Prijs voor Nederlandse letterkunde. Deze landelijke roman, tevens psychologische probleemroman, behoort tot het beste wat het Vlaamse literaire proza heeft voortgebracht. De grondgedachte is dat de natuurlijke geluksdrang van de mens op termijn sterker is dan zijn meest verheven wilsbesluiten, dat eden en plechtige beloftes niets vermogen tegen de werking van de tijd, zeker als de persoon op wie zij betrekkingen hebben niet langer tot de levenden behoort.

This book presents the first comprehensive analysis of the human rights of refugees as set by the UN Refugee Convention. In an era where States are increasingly challenging the logic of simply assimilating refugees to their own citizens, questions are now being raised about whether refugees should be allowed to enjoy freedom of movement, to work, to access public welfare programs, or to be reunited with family members. Doubts have been expressed about the propriety of exempting refugees from visa and other immigration rules, and whether there is a duty to admit refugees at all. Hathaway links the standards of the UN Refugee Convention to key norms of international human rights law, and applies his analysis to the world's most difficult protection challenges. This is a critical resource for advocates, judges, and policymakers. It will also be a pioneering scholarly work for graduate students of international and human rights law.
In this succinct study, Edna Greene Medford examines the ideas and events that shaped President Lincoln’s responses to slavery, following the arc of his ideological development from the beginning of the Civil War, when he aimed to pursue a course of noninterference, to his championing of slavery’s destruction before the conflict ended. Throughout, Medford juxtaposes the president’s motivations for advocating freedom with the aspirations of African Americans themselves, restoring African Americans to the center of the story about the struggle for their own liberation. Lincoln and African Americans, Medford argues, approached emancipation differently, with the president moving slowly and cautiously in order to save the Union while the enslaved and their supporters pressed more urgently for an end to slavery. Despite the differences, an undeclared partnership existed between the president and slaves that led to both preservation of the Union and freedom for those in bondage. Medford chronicles Lincoln’s transition from advocating gradual abolition to campaigning for immediate emancipation for the majority of the enslaved, a change effected by the military and by the efforts of African Americans. The author argues that many players—including the abolitionists and Radical Republicans, War Democrats, and black men and women—participated in the drama through agitation, military support of the Union, and destruction of the institution from within. Medford also addresses differences in the interpretation of freedom: Lincoln and most Americans defined it as the destruction of slavery, but African Americans understood the term to involve equality and full inclusion into American society. An epilogue considers Lincoln’s death, African American efforts to honor him, and the president’s legacy at home and abroad. Both enslaved and free black people, Medford demonstrates, were fervent participants in the emancipation effort, showing an eagerness to get on with the business of freedom long before the president or the North did. By including African American voices in the emancipation narrative, this insightful volume offers a fresh and welcome perspective on Lincoln’s America.
