Check out this interview with the author on C-SPAN! In 1912, a revolutionary chick cries, "Strike down the wall!" and liberates itself from the "egg state." In 1940, ostriches pull their heads out of the sand and unite to fight fascism. In 1972, Baby X grows up without a gender and is happy about it. Rather than teaching children to obey authority, to conform, or to seek redemption through prayer, twentieth-century leftists encouraged children to question the authority of those in power. Tales for Little Rebels collects forty-three mostly out-of-print stories, poems, comic strips, primers, and other texts for children that embody this radical tradition. These pieces reflect the concerns of twentieth-century leftist movements, like peace, civil rights, gender equality, environmental responsibility, and the dignity of labor. They also address the means of achieving these ideals, including taking collective action, developing critical thinking skills, and harnessing the liberating power of the imagination. Some of the authors and illustrators are familiar, including Lucille Clifton, Syd Hoff, Langston Hughes, Walt Kelly, Norma Klein, Munro Leaf, Julius Lester, Eve Merriam, Charlotte Pomerantz, Carl Sandburg, and Dr. Seuss. Others are relatively unknown today, but their work deserves to be remembered. (Each of the pieces includes an introduction and a biographical sketch of the author.) From the anti-advertising message of Johnny Get Your Money's Worth (and Jane Too)! (1938) to the entertaining ons in ecology provided by The Day They Parachuted Cats on Borneo (1971), and Sandburg's mockery of war in Rootabaga Pigeons (1923), these pieces will thrill readers intrigued by politics and history--and anyone with a love of children's literature, no matter what age.

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.

Handling the Pornography Addiction: What’s Wrong With a Few Dirty Movies Anyway? David Mastoff Pornography has become a plague affecting people all over the world. With a few mouse clicks, anyone connected to the net can viewvideos and pictures portraying anything from nudity to hardcore explicit sex acts. There are even websites that feature women who perform live using webcams, known as cam models - these are quickly becoming the most popular sites on the internet.
Many people view pornography without harm to their psyche and use it as part of their normal sex life. They enjoy the “spice” that adult entertainment can provide. You could compare this to someone who socially drinks; they can enjoy a glass of wine with dinner without becoming an alcoholic. On the other hand, some people suffer from an addiction to pornography. These individuals are driven to view explicit materials in a similar way to those who have addictions to alcohol or drugs. Quite often, they will spend obscene amounts of money to purchase graphic materials, and will often become introverted and isolated from society. A few men and women become so addicted that they lose their friends, isolate themselves from their families and don’t bother to find a romantic partner.
Their overriding purpose in life becomes the viewing of pornographic materials and the related sexual sensations. Pornography is everywhere, all around us, and it has an effect on individuals and society as a whole. This book explores the effects of porn on individual, families and societies as a whole.
