READING: Derde deel in de internationale successerie 'The World Book of ...' Hoop is de ultieme menselijke kracht en het tegenovergestelde van angst. In deze onzekere tijden is het belangrijk dat we hoop als bron voor succes, veerkracht en geluk goed begrijpen. Uit internationaal onderzoek blijkt dat 90% van de wereldbevolking een hoopvolle kijk op de toekomst heeft. Hoop is universeel, ongeacht leeftijd, geslacht of inkomen. De bekende psychiater, Viktor Frankl, overlever van de Holocaust, schreef dat de laatste vrijheid die men van de mens kan wegnemen de manier is hoe hij tegenover de omstandigheden staat. Dat is de kern van hoop. Echte hoop schept geen valse verwachtingen, maar is de bron voor positieve emoties. Het laat ons nieuwe mogelijkheden zien en maakt passieve mensen weer actief. Hoop heeft een gezonde invloed op onze mentale gezondheid. Hoop stimuleert verandering.


The Book Radical Hope

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Shortly before he died, Plenty Coups, the last great Chief of the Crow Nation, told his story--up to a certain point. "When the buffalo went away the hearts of my people fell to the ground," he said, "and they could not lift them up again. After this nothing happened." It is precisely this point--that of a people faced with the end of their way of life--that prompts the philosophical and ethical inquiry pursued in "Radical Hope." In Jonathan Lear's view, Plenty Coups' story raises a profound ethical question that transcends his time and challenges us all: how should one face the possibility that one's culture might collapse? This is a vulnerability that affects us all--insofar as we are all inhabitants of a civilization, and civilizations are themselves vulnerable to historical forces. How should we live with this vulnerability? Can we make any sense of facing up to such a challenge courageously? Using the available anthropology and history of the Indian tribes during their confinement to reservations, and drawing on philosophy and psychoanalytic theory, Lear explores the story of the Crow Nation at an impasse as it bears upon these questions--and these questions as they bear upon our own place in the world. His book is a deeply revealing, and deeply moving, philosophical inquiry into a peculiar vulnerability that goes to the heart of the human condition.

Genre History
Pages 430
ISBN 0691025568
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The most thorough account yet available of a revolution that saw the first true agrarian reform in Central America, this book is also a penetrating analysis of the tragic destruction of that revolution. In no other Central American country was U.S. intervention so decisive and so ruinous, charges Piero Gleijeses. Yet he shows that the intervention can be blamed on no single "convenient villain." "Extensively researched and written with conviction and passion, this study analyzes the history and downfall of what seems in retrospect to have been Guatemala's best government, the short-lived regime of Jacobo Arbenz, overthrown in 1954, by a CIA-orchestrated coup."--Foreign Affairs "Piero Gleijeses offers a historical road map that may serve as a guide for future generations. . . . [Readers] will come away with an understanding of the foundation of a great historical tragedy."--Saul Landau, The Progressive "[Gleijeses's] academic rigor does not prevent him from creating an accessible, lucid, almost journalistic account of an episode whose tragic consequences still reverberate."--Paul Kantz, Commonweal

READING: Notions of magic and healing have been changing over past years and are now understood as reflecting local ideas of power and agency, as well as structures of self, subjectivity and affect. This study focuses on contemporary urban Russia and, through exploring social conditions, conveys the experience of living that makes magic logical. By following people's own interpretations of the work of magic, the author succeeds in unraveling the logic of local practice and local understanding of affliction, commonly used to diagnose the experiences of illness and misfortune.

By telling the stories of many brave women through firsthand accounts, it highlights some of the tremendous challenges related to gender issues in South Sudan today; challenges such as a lack of access to education, high rates of gender-based violence, the prevalence of highly patriarchal traditions and customs, and poor health-care services resulting in the highest maternal mortality rate in the world. Informative and hopeful, this book aspires to contribute to the creation of a policy framework that is in line with the vision of a democratic and peaceful South Sudan.

The Publisher John Wiley & Sons
Release Date2013-05-08
Genre Political Science
Pages 200
ISBN 9780745662985
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This book is an exploration of the new forms of social movements and protests that are erupting in the world today, from the Arab uprisings to the indignadas movement in Spain, and the Occupy Wall Street movement in the US. While these and similar social movements differ in many important ways, there is one thing they share in common: they are all interwoven inextricably with the creation of autonomous communication networks supported by the Internet and wireless communication. In this timely and important book, Manuel Castells – the leading scholar of our contemporary networked society – examines the social, cultural and political roots of these new social movements, studies their innovative forms of self-organization, assesses the precise role of technology in the dynamics of the movements, suggests the reasons for the support they have found in large segments of society, and probes their capacity to induce political change by influencing people’s minds. Based on original fieldwork by the author and his collaborators as well as secondary sources, this book provides a path-breaking analysis of the new forms of social movements, and offers an analytical template for advancing the debates triggered by them concerning the new forms of social change and political democracy in the global network society.

The Publisher Pocket Books
Release Date2004
Genre Hope diamond
Pages 336
ISBN 0743450825
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Allegedly a curse to those that own it, the Hope Diamond - a flawless blue diamond of over forty-five carats - has inspired centuries of legends and lies, fabulous superstition and fierce passion. In rich, shimmering prose, Marian Fowler explains how the Hope Diamond was formed in nature - and how it was taken from the mines and temples of India to the royal courts of seventeenth-century Europe. Acquired and cherished by Louis XIV, the stone was stolen in an almost farcical French Revolution robbery. It resurfaced twenty years later in London and passed through numerous hands, including those of a notorious music hall singer, a socially ambitious gold miner's daughter and the famous jeweller Harry Winston - until it finally arrived at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. At once erudite and extravagantly entertaining, HOPE is an irresistible and alluring work of social history, bringing to vivid life the diverse parade of men and women who were linked by their obsession with the world's rarest jewel.

The Book Pandora s Hope
The Author Bruno Latour
The Publisher Harvard University Press
Release Date1999
Genre Science
Pages 324
ISBN 0674653351
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: A scientist friend asked Bruno Latour point-blank: "Do you believe in reality?" Taken aback by this strange query, Latour offers his meticulous response in Pandora's Hope. It is a remarkable argument for understanding the reality of science in practical terms. In this book Latour, identified by Richard Rorty as the new "bête noire of the science worshipers," gives us his most philosophically informed book since Science in Action. Through case studies of scientists in the Amazon analyzing soil and in Pasteur's lab studying the fermentation of lactic acid, he shows us the myriad steps by which events in the material world are transformed into items of scientific knowledge. Through many examples in the world of technology, we see how the material and human worlds come together and are reciprocally transformed in this process. Why, Latour asks, did the idea of an independent reality, free of human interaction, emerge in the first place? His answer to this question, harking back to the debates between Might and Right narrated by Plato, points to the real stakes in the so-called science wars: the perplexed submission of ordinary people before the warring forces of claimants to the ultimate truth.

Pages 118
ISBN 9781862548855
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: How does hope manifest itself for young people on the margins of society? In this book young people talk about their hopes and fears for the future - the possibility of leading a full life. They illustrate those hopes and fears in images and drawings of people and places meaningful to them. We learn that they are both typical of young people everywhere - desiring love, family, the prospect of work - yet different in that achieving those aims may involve pathways of proscribed, even criminal, behaviours. Through these moving, often raw, stories and images, we gain insights into the everyday and imaginary worlds of marginalised young people. We also hear from their teachers and others who work with them attempting to build lost relationships and trust. The members of the research team who worked with these people also contribute their thoughts, arguing that a truly sustainable society is not possible until the thoughts and opinions of all are taken into account.

Pages 440
ISBN 9780080533063

A final section discusses hope in occupational applications: how the use of hope can make one a better coach, teacher, or parent. Key Features * Defines hope as a construct and describes development of hope through the lifespan * Provides multiple instruments for measuring hope * Guides professionals in how to assess hope levels & implement hope as part of therapy * Relates hope to all portions of the population * Includes case studies, figures, and tables to aid understanding of research findings and concepts; discusses the importance of hope to relationships, achieving goals, and success at work

Genre Political Science
Pages 534

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: In follow-up studies, dozens of reviews, and even a book of essays evaluating his conclusions, Gerald Rosenberg’s critics—not to mention his supporters—have spent nearly two decades debating the arguments he first put forward in The Hollow Hope. With this substantially expanded second edition of his landmark work, Rosenberg himself steps back into the fray, responding to criticism and adding chapters on the same-sex marriage battle that ask anew whether courts can spur political and social reform. Finding that the answer is still a resounding no, Rosenberg reaffirms his powerful contention that it’s nearly impossible to generate significant reforms through litigation. The reason? American courts are ineffective and relatively weak—far from the uniquely powerful sources for change they’re often portrayed as. Rosenberg supports this claim by documenting the direct and secondary effects of key court decisions—particularly Brown v. Board of Education and Roe v. Wade. He reveals, for example, that Congress, the White House, and a determined civil rights movement did far more than Brown to advance desegregation, while pro-choice activists invested too much in Roe at the expense of political mobilization. Further illuminating these cases, as well as the ongoing fight for same-sex marriage rights, Rosenberg also marshals impressive evidence to overturn the common assumption that even unsuccessful litigation can advance a cause by raising its profile. Directly addressing its critics in a new conclusion, The Hollow Hope, Second Edition promises to reignite for a new generation the national debate it sparked seventeen years ago.
