Gains and Losses

Gains and Losses
Presents cutting edge theory about the consequences of social movements and protest while asking what kind of trade-offs protest movements face in trying to change the world around them. Many scholars have tried to figure out why some social movements have an impact and others do not. By looking inside movements at their component parts and recurrent strategic interactions, the authors of Gains and Losses show that movements usually produce a variety of effects, including recurring packages of gains and losses. They ask what kinds of trade-offs and dilemmas these packages reflect by looking at six empirical cases from around the world: Seattle''s conflict over the $15 an hour minimum wage; the establishment of participatory budgeting in New York City; a democratic insurgency inside New York City''s Transport Workers'' Union; a communist party''s struggle to gain votes and also protect citizen housing in Graz, Austria; the internal movement tensions that led to Hong Kong''s umbrella occupation; and Russia''s electoral reform movement embodied in Alexei Navalny. They not only examine the diverse players in these cases involved in politics and protest, but also the many strategic arenas in which they maneuver. While each of these movements made some remarkable gains, this book shows how many also suffered losses, especially in the longer run.

Biblical Ethics and Social Change

Biblical Ethics and Social Change
This scholarly synthesis of biblical studies and Christian social ethics is designed to provide a biblical argument for intentional institutional change on behalf of social justice. Stephen Charles Mott provides a biblical and ethical guide on ways to implement that change. The first part of the book, providing the biblical theology of intentional social change, deals with the central concepts in biblical and theological ethics: grace, evil, love, justice, and the Reign of God. Christian social change must be rooted not only in justice, but in the grace received through the death and resurrection of Christ. The second part evaluates ethical and theological methods for carrying out that intentional social change. It offers a study of evangelism, counter community, civil disobedience, armed revolution, and political reform. It shows the contribution of each as well as the strong limitations of each used in isolation. A recurring theme of the book is the scriptural insistence on the priority of justice as taking upon oneself the cause of the oppressed. Justice is understood on bringing back into the community those who are near to falling out of it. Political authority has a vital role in social change for justice. It is essential that a Christian use all available and legitimate means of meeting basic needs by providing for all what is essential for inclusion in society. In this revised edition, Mott updates the contemporary illustrations and includes his own further reflections in the last thirty years on this topic.

Shark!

release date: Mar 04, 2011
Shark!
SHARK! The cry that strikes fear into the hearts of beach lovers around the world. It carries a chill of terror, that death is nearby and waiting. Or injuries so shocking that the mind recoils from the thought. This book chronicles shark attacks both on Australia''s fatal shores and overseas. It also records miraculous escapes - some so bizarre they defy belief, and some that display extraordinary courage in the face of extreme peril. Robert Reid interviews famous shark hunters and other adventurers who speak for the first time about their dangerous encounters with these fearsome predators. Reid investigates the phenomenon of the so-called ''rogue'' sharks, those that stalk and kill humans in numbers, in the same place, at the same time. These are gripping stories that will both fascinate and frighten, stories that will take the reader into the realm of these strange but terrible creatures. They have ruled the oceans with ruthless efficiency for more than 400 million years. They are the silent killers of the deep.

Elements of Geometry, and Plane Trigonometry
Excerpt from Elements of Geometry, and Plane Trigonometry: With an Appendix, and Very Copious Notes and Illustrations We should form a wrong estimate, however, did we consider the Elements of Euclid, with all its merits, as a finished production. That admi rable work was composed at the period when Geo metry was making its most rapid advances, and new prospects were opening on every side. No wonder that its structure should now appear loose and defective. In adapting it to the actual state of the science, I have therefore endeavoured care fully to retain the spirit Of the original, but have sought to enlarge the basis, and to dispose the accumulated materials into a regular and more compact system. By simplifying the order Of ar rangement, I have materially abridged the labour Of the student. The numerous additions that are incorporated in the text, so far from retarding, will rather facilitate his progress, by rendering more continuous the chain Of demonstration.

Two-way Mirrors

Two-way Mirrors
Two-Way Mirrors engages in cross-cultural study—a pursuit inherently both reflective and reflexive, shedding light not only on the object of study but also on the subject conducting the study. The book''s leading metaphor is that of the shop window, which is at once transparent (allowing a view of the merchandise on display) and reflective (offering an image of the prospective shopper). Eugene Eoyang confronts the topics of globalization, postmodernism, and the other as self, bi-directionally, from both an Asian and a Western perspective. He celebrates the continuing development of comparative literature, a discipline particularly well suited to cross-cultural exploration.

About ten years after, 066 Paul Craw, a Bohemian, and follower of Huss. Was accused of heresy be fore such as were then called Doctors of Theology. The articles C charge were, that he followed Huss and vvickliff in the opinion of tb sacrament of the supper, who denied that the substance of bread anc wine were changed by virtue of any words, or that auricular confessio to priests, or praying to saints departed, were lawful. He was commit ted to the secular judge, who condemned him to the fire at St. Andrews, where he sufi''ered, being gagged uhen led to the stake, that he might not have the opportunity of making his confession.
