New Religions and the Theological Imagination in America
"Bednarowski is especially good at elucidating the theological daring of these new American religions.... [She] demonstrates in a very few pages how... theology and group adherence made the individual count, a configuration simultaneously American, un-American, and important." -- Jon Butler "The cultural confrontation with these `new religions' is very real and usually very misinformed. Bednarowski has gone to great lengths to dispel the ignorance." -- The Christian Century "A groundbreaking study." -- Syzygy: Journal of Alternative Religion and Culture Organized as a series of theological conversations about ultimate questions, this book offers a guide to the answers these six religions offer. Drawing heavily on sources from the movements themselves, it presents a balanced comparative account of the emerging theological systems of America's new religions.

Acts of Trust

Acts of Trust
Without trust, our lives would be impossible. Every relationship we have, whatever its nature, depends on trust for its successful continuance. Sometimes life itself depends on it. But how do we trust other people? What happens to us when we engage in acts of trust? And what happens to us when our trust is betrayed? Mary Farrell examines issues of trust through a series of stories: true stories about exceptional people who have engaged in extraordinary acts of trust. In doing so, she sheds light on the nature of our relationships and how they operate. The stories include that of the Native American woman who runs a wolf sanctuary and lives and works with wild animals; the circus couple who need absolute trust to perform a ‘William Tell’ act on each other; the story of horse-whisperer Franklin Levinson; the story of best-selling author Susan Winter, who has studied relationships between older women and younger men; and the story of actor Michael Hurst (Iolaus in the television series Hercules). Using the principles and techniques of psychotherapy to shed light on the acts of trust in the stories she tells, Mary Farrell also looks at the negative sides of trust, including deceit, betrayal and disbelief. This is a truly unique book that will enlighten and delight anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of their relationships.

The Religious Imagination of American Women
"This book is a nuanced discussion of contemporary feminist thought in a variety of religious traditions. It draws from both academic and popular writings and offers a rich selection of books to pursue on one's own." -- Re-Imagining "This remarkable book examines American women's religious thought in many diverse faith traditions.... This is a cogent, provocative -- even moving -- analysis." -- Publishers Weekly This study of the fruits of many different women's religious thought offers insights into the ways women may be shaping American religious ideas and world views at the end of the twentieth century. At its broadest, this book presents a multi-voiced response to the question: "When women across many traditions are heard speaking theologically, publicly and self-consciously as women, what do they have to say?"

Mary Mcmillan ~ the Mother of Physical Therapy
Mary McMillan: The Mother of Physical ~ Mary McMillan was as instrumental in founding physical therapy, as FlorenceNightingale influenced the profession of modern nursing. Mary knew from anearly age that she was meant to help, heal, and assist those who were in pain.She was fearless and unafraid to help all who suffered, no matter the peril. Marywas the key figure in organizing the profession of physical therapy in the first half of the twentieth century.Born in America in 1880, she was uprooted to England to live with her aunt at an early age. In college, she trained in physical education and remedial exercises in order to work with patients recovering from orthopedic surgery. In 1910 she worked in Liverpool under the eminent Sir Robert Jones. Shereturned to the United States in 1915 and became the Director of the Clinic ofthe Children's Hospital in Portland, Maine. Two years later, thousands of WorldWar I wounded soldiers needed rehabilitation after the end of the war. She quickly became known and admired by leading orthopedic doctors and was recruited by the United States Surgeon General to form courses in physical reconstruction and therapy. Mary was the first reconstruction aide sworn into the United States Army in February 1918 and shortly thereafter was promoted to Director of Reconstruction Aides, later to be called Physical Therapists.World War I launched a need and ignited the field of physical therapyin America. It allowed women to begin a career in a new profession, one that would make their talents shine by healing tens of thousands of suffering soldiers. Mary taught the United States Army's inaugural class of over 200women reconstruction aides at Reed College, whose graduates were sent outall over the country to set up hospital wards to rehabilitate the war's woundedsoldiers. She would become known by all in her profession as "The Mother ofPhysical Therapy," and a leader of the rapidly growing vocation. Because of Mary's hard work, efforts, and teaching, physical therapy would later become an integral part of every medical and physical recovery program for patients in homes, hospitals, clinics, schools, and training facilities around the world.In 1921, Mary wrote the best-selling book, Massage and TherapeuticExercise, published by W.B. Saunders. She became the principal founder and president of the American Women's Physical Therapeutics Association, known today as the American Physical Therapy Association. At the same time, she was the Director of Physiotherapy at Harvard Medical School Graduate Program for eight years.

She was left stranded in Manila as the Japanese invaded the city, which leftno chance for her repatriation home. Mary, and over 4,000 other Americans,British, and Dutch faced tragic circumstances, heroic hardships, starvation,and life-threatening health issues during their imprisonment by the Japanese in the Santo Tomas and Chapei Internment Camps from 1941-1944. This heroic story shares, in vivid detail, her triumphant life story in how she endured and survived through it all, never lost faith, and succeeded in her goal to serve the unfortunate as the "Mother of Physical Therapy"

EU and WTO Regulatory Frameworks

EU and WTO Regulatory Frameworks
Charts the development of the World Trade Organisation, and examines its role as regulator of the international trading system. The management of the trade policies of the 132 member countries so as to ensure compliance with the principles of trade liberalisation lies at the heart of the WTO's mandate. However, under the extended powers granted to the WTO as a result of the Uruguay Round settlement, in both trade liberalisation and dispute settlement, there lies ample ground for conflicts with the European Union's commercial policy. Mary Farrell considers whether the WTO is likely to impose constraints on EU commercial policy and thereby impinge on the sovereignty of the union as a whole, or whether the EU may continue to operate independently and in coexistence with the trade liberalisation agenda of the WTO.
