Yoga, books of meditation and the music of India are becoming increasingly popular in the United States, particularly among young people. To discover how young people who have lived within this other culture think, Edward Rice, the author and photographer of this book, spent time in India talking with teenagers. In these "interviews" -cool, casual raps by a gifted observer -the author asked all kinds of questions, and came up with an intense and personal portrait of a country; revealed with an immediacy and intimacy that will surprise most American readers, on either side of the generation gap. TRADITIONAL INDIA A young Muslim girl, almost too shy to speak; a Brahmin wife, married at 14; a teenage guru fast becoming an expert on the 4,000 year old prayers and chants taught by the Vedas. BIG CITY INDIA Upper class teenage rebels, office workers, students, young Sikhs and Parsis: castes and classes juggled together in crowded cities. CHANGING INDIA A Muslim girl who defies tradition by entering a beauty contest-and wins; an elephant boy from the jungles; students in villages and towns trying to find a balance between India's past and India's present. People talking, people walking, people caught by the special magic in a photograph; a time and culture at once summed up and left mysterious: Mother India's Children.
"I know of no East or West, North nor South when it comes to my class fighting the battle for justice." From the end of the Civil War until her death in 1930 at the age of 100, Mary Harris "Mother" Jones was a tireless fighter for the working class. Declaring "I reside wherever the workers are fighting the robbers," she participated in battles together with coal miners in West Virginia, garment workers in New York, steelworkers in Chicago, streetcar workers in Texas, brewery workers in Milwaukee, and countless others. For her activities she was frequently victimized by the bosses' system of justice, and spent time in many a prison cell. A prosecutor in West Virginia termed her "the most dangerous woman in America." Much of her efforts went into the great battles to organize the United Mine Workers of America. Throughout the coalfields of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Alabama, and elsewhere, she joined with miners facing cops and troops, hired gun thugs and special deputies, judges and prosecutors, bringing to bear the power of the union. Today Mother Jones remains a symbol of struggle for miners and their supporters in their ongoing battles against the coal bosses.
Modern evangelicals have gained money, power, and influence, and it has been like giving whiskey to a two-year-old. The need of the hour is theological, not political. The arena is the pulpit and the table, not the legislative chamber.

In her bestselling Motherless Daughters, Hope Edelman articulated the effects of early mother loss with stunning courage and honesty. In doing so, she helped hundreds of thousands of women heal. Now, in her new book--part memoir, part reportage--she brilliantly explores the three-generational triangle from which women develop their female identities: the grandmother-mother-granddaughter relationship. Edelman writes that her grandmother and her mother together "defined the terms 'mother,' 'daughter,' and 'woman' for me. The three of us, in my memory, are separate yet linked, like sequential pearls on a strand." Drawing from her own experience and the recollections of more than seventy other granddaughters, Edelman constructs an eloquent, insightful narrative filled with stories of women who were each other's nurturers, confidantes, nemeses, and day-to-day supporters, among other roles. At the center of all these stories stands the maternal grandmother. In the pages of Mother of My Mother, readers will meet the "Gentle Giant," the matriarch who exercises behind-the-scenes power in her family; the "Autocrat," who rules her extended clan like a despot; and the "Kinkeeper," the grandmother who acts as the family's social, cultural, or religious center. Then, of course, there is Edelman's own maternal grandmother, the "Benevolent Manipulator," whose love for her family is rivaled only by her desire for control. Edelman's complicated, challenging, and dynamic relationship with her "colorful, opinionated, ubiquitous, stubborn, loving, patient ..." grandmother is the consistent thread that runs throughout the book.
The story revolves about twenty-eight-year-old Even, a black man who grew up an orphan, and Valuable Korner, a fifteen-year-old white girl who is the daughter of the town whore and an unknown father.
