Resisting Representation

The concluding sentence of the narrative informs us that during that prison
meeting between Henry and Rachel immediately following Francis's death,
Rachel takes and begins to wear on her heart not Francis's locket but Henry's
button.

Rachel is 19. She doesn’t know how to handle her new stepmother, let alone the end of the world. But after finding her stepmother dead, Rachel is suddenly racing against time—and terrifying, unnatural forces—to survive a gruesome apocalyptic event. Outside her door, the college town of Fort Collins, Colorado, is filled with corpses, and something unfathomable is happening to those bodies. And it’s only just begun. As Rachel struggles to comprehend her horrible new reality, she’ll need to find answers to questions she never thought she’d ask—all while desperately searching for her lost father, on whom she pins all her hopes for coming out of this phenomenon alive and intact. But nothing will be as it seems.

Which do you want us to save, your wife or your son? Your daughter is profoundly retarded. She is blind, deaf and will remain on a three month old infant level all her life...which we give to be two, maybe four years from now. Some days, aspirations, affirmations and one good aspirin is enough. For other days, you may need to know the secret of living in the Joy, of embracing the Grace of knowing how to live out your Faith in the most practical way. Knowing God does not make us exempt from hideous scars, shame, disfigurements or debatable issues. Already muddled with grief, frustration and struggles, I felt The Great Whisperer tug at my spirit. What was it He wanted this time?

People often overlook the uncanny nature of homecomings, writing off the experience of finding oneself at home in a strange place or realizing that places from our past have grown strange. This book challenges our assumptions about the value of home, arguing for the ethical value of our feeling displaced and homeless in the 21st century. Home is explored in places ranging from digital keyboards to literary texts, and investigates how we mediate our homecomings aesthetically through cultural artifacts (art, movies, television shows) and conceptual structures (philosophy, theology, ethics, narratives). In questioning the place of home in human lives and the struggles involved with defining, defending, naming and returning to homes, the volume collects and extends ideas about home and homecomings that will inform traditional problems in novel ways.

Intrigue, investigations, thievery, drugs and murder all make an appearance in Collins’s classic who-done-it, The Moonstone. Published in serial form in 1868, it was inspired in part by a spectacular murder case widely reported in the early 1860s. Collins’s story revolves around a diamond stolen from a Hindu holy place. On her eighteenth birthday, Rachel Verinder receives the diamond, but by the following morning the stone has been stolen again. As the story unravels through multiple eyewitness accounts, the elderly Sergeant Cuff—with a face “sharp as a hatchet”—looks for the culprit. One of Collins’s best-loved novels, with an exciting plot moved along by deftly-drawn characters and elegant pacing, The Moonstone was also turned into a play by Collins; the play appears as an appendix to this edition.

Every year, nations and corporations in the "global North" produce millionsof tons of toxic waste. Too often this hazardous material--linked to high rates of illness and deathand widespread ecosystem damage--is exported to poor communities of color around the world. InResisting Global Toxics, David Naguib Pellow examines this practice and charts the emergence oftransnational environmental justice movements to challenge and reverse it. Pellow argues that wastedumping across national boundaries from rich to poor communities is a form of transnationalenvironmental inequality that reflects North/South divisions in a globalized world, and that it mustbe theorized in the context of race, class, nation, and environment. Building on environmentaljustice studies, environmental sociology, social movement theory, and race theory, and drawing onhis own research, interviews, and participant observations, Pellow investigates the phenomenon ofglobal environmental inequality and considers the work of activists, organizations, and networksresisting it. He traces the transnational waste trade from its beginnings in the 1980s to thepresent day, examining global garbage dumping, the toxic pesticides that are the legacy of the GreenRevolution in agriculture, and today's scourge of dumping and remanufacturing high tech andelectronics products. The rise of the transnational environmental movements described in ResistingGlobal Toxics charts a pragmatic path toward environmental justice, human rights, andsustainability.David Naguib Pellow is Professor in the Ethnic Studies Department and Director ofCalifornia Cultures in Comparative Perspective at the University of California, San Diego. Among hisbooks are the award-winning Garbage Wars: The Struggle for Environmental Justice in Chicago (MITPress, 2002) and Power, Justice, and the Environment: A Critical Appraisal of the EnvironmentalJustice Movement (coedited with Robert Brulle; MIT Press, 2005).

Her work pulls together a range of disciplines and themes in motherhood studies. She confronts the effects of globalization, HIV/AIDS, welfare reform, politicians as mothers, third wave feminism, and the evolving motherhood movement, and she incorporates Chicana, African-American, Canadian, Muslim, queer, low-income, trans, and lesbian perspectives.

In the decades after World War II, Protestant missionaries abroad were a topic of vigorous public debate. From religious periodicals and Sunday sermons to novels and anthropological monographs, public conversations about missionaries followed a powerful yet paradoxical line of reasoning, namely that people abroad needed greater autonomy from U.S. power and that Americans could best tell others how to use their freedom. In The Gospel of Freedom and Power, Sarah E. Ruble traces and analyzes these public discussions about what it meant for Americans abroad to be good world citizens, placing them firmly in the context of the United States' postwar global dominance. Bringing together a wide range of sources, Ruble seeks to understand how discussions about a relatively small group of Americans working abroad became part of a much larger cultural conversation. She concludes that whether viewed as champions of nationalist revolutions or propagators of the gospel of capitalism, missionaries--along with their supporters, interpreters, and critics--ultimately both challenged and reinforced a rhetoric of exceptionalism that made Americans the judges of what was good for the rest of the world.

"Nativism has once again gained momentum in U.S. politics. This tendency to define nationhood not by values or laws but in racial, ethnic, or religious terms is not new. Yet nativism is inherently undemocratic because nativists demote citizens who have the "wrong" characteristics to, at best, second-class citizenship. As nativist voters flex their muscle, what can political parties on both sides of the aisle do to put the genie back in the bottle? Examining how Austria, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and Italy have addressed nativism in their politics offers some useful lessons" -- Summary.

'Fear' in the twenty-first century has greater currency in western societies than ever before. Through scares ranging from cot death, juvenile crime, internet porn, asylum seekers, dirty bombs and avian flu, we are bombarded with messages about emerging risks. This book takes stock of a range of issues of 'fear' and presents new theoretical arguments and research findings that cover topics as diverse as the war on terror, the immigration crisis, stranger danger, global disease epidemics and sectarian violence. This book charts the association of fear discourses with particular spaces, times, social identities and sets of geopolitical relations. It examines the ways in which fear may be manufactured and manipulated for political purposes, sometimes becoming a tool of repression, and relates fear to political, economic and social marginalization at different scales. Furthermore, it highlights the importance and sometimes unpredictability of everyday lived experiences of fear - the many ways in which people recognize, make sense of and manage fear; the extent of resistance to fear; the relation of fear and hope in everyday life; and the role of emotions in galvanizing political and social action and change.
