READING: Our age is not one of great hope; war and terror continue unabated. Despair lies hidden just below the preoccupations of daily life, and is starkly visible at many points in today's world. Directly or indirectly, the contributors to this volume seek to challenge the culture of despair. These authors, theologians and leaders in the Uniting Church, write about hope: its ground, its shape in the bible and its expression in Christia life and worship, mission and ministry. The book challenges the church as much as the culture. Do Christians know the ground of thier hope' Is the church the bearer of hope' Does its worship sustain hope'

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.


The Book Networks of Outrage and Hope
The Author Manuel Castells
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 Book Shattered Hope
The Author Piero Gleijeses
The Publisher Princeton University Press
Release Date1992
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

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.

Todorov explores the history of the past century not only by analyzing its spectacular political conflicts but also by offering moving profiles of several individuals who, at great personal cost, resisted the strictures of the Communist and Nazi regimes."--BOOK JACKET.

Genre Fiction
Pages 268
ISBN 9781598588439
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Hope is about guilt. Hope is about regret. Hope is about parallels, parallels because we are all human. And Hope is about realizations and a little salvation. Ultimately, Hope is about a little light that can exist in all of us to help us find the way. It's about a mystery of a missing girl, but the real mystery is learning to heal a little, to forgive oneself a little-even at a terrible price. Orchard Grove, Maine: Poor, coastal fishing town, close to Boston. Nine months of the year, the town languishes and hides, but come summer, the natives are restless. The town attracts New York and Boston high society to the exclusive and luscious Pointe-Morel Estates on its outskirts. Money pours in, opportunities present themselves, hopes run high, and love and lust run cheap. But this summer is different because Hope, the town's favorite daughter, is missing. It's up to the smart but volatile newcomer detective to find her. Is there a connection between Hope's disappearance and the tourists? Can it be that simple, that trite? Detective Aziz and his colleagues have very little to go on, very little other than the barely sensible words and actions of Johnny Netter, a teenager with a developmental disorder. Sad Johnny, sad because Hope isn't there to play catch with him. He is anxious and agitated. He shrieks and he claps and stomps, but is there something else in his emoting, is there a connection? Is there more than just missing a friend behind the emoting and the humming? Will Aziz discover the secrets? And if so, what else might he learn about sympathy, compassion, fear, guilt, about our prejudices reflected in our actions and inactions-in short, all that is in the makeup of all of us?
