Everything's Coming Up Josey

by Susan May Warren

I need you, the tall, good-looking missionary had said. . . ;but he'd been speaking to Josey's entire church at the time. Had she taken it too literally? Because she was no longer in Gull Lake, Minnesota. She was a missionary. In Russia. For a year. True, Josey had wanted to skip town when her sister married her ex, and her secret crush/best friend got engaged. But Russia? Yet after a few weeks the idea grew on her. She could speak enough words to buy fruit at the Moscow market, and the missionary role was feeling. . . ;right (although her bagel-thieving roommate tested her daily). Even the frosty Russian weather was no big deal for this Minnesota girl - it was getting her love life to thaw that was the real challenge!

Robinson also gets personal, exploring money problems she's hidden from her parents, how dating is mainly a warmed-over bowl of hot mess, and definitely most important, meeting Bono not once, but twice. She's struggled with being a woman with a political mind and a woman with an ever-changing jeans size.

Everywhere and Nowhere: Anonymity and Mediation in Eighteenth-Century Britain

by Mark Vareschi

A fascinating analysis of anonymous publication centuries before the digital ageEverywhere and Nowhere considers the ubiquity of anonymity and mediation in the publication and circulation of eighteenth-century British literature—before the Romantic creation of the “author”—and what this means for literary criticism. Anonymous authorship was typical of the time, yet literary scholars and historians have been generally unable to account for it as anything more than a footnote or curiosity. Mark Vareschi shows the entangled relationship between mediation and anonymity, revealing the nonhuman agency of the printed text. Drawing richly on quantitative analysis and robust archival work, Vareschi brings together philosophy, literary theory, and media theory in a trenchant analysis, uncovering a history of textual engagement and interpretation that does not hinge on the known authorial subject.In discussing anonymous poetry, drama, and the novel along with anonymously published writers such as Daniel Defoe, Frances Burney, and Walter Scott, he unveils a theory of mediation that renews broader questions about agency and intention. Vareschi argues that textual intentionality is a property of nonhuman, material media rather than human subjects alone, allowing the anonymous literature of the eighteenth century to speak to contemporary questions of meaning in the philosophy of language. Vareschi closes by exploring dubious claims about the death of anonymity and the reexplosion of anonymity with the coming of the digital. Ultimately, Everywhere and Nowhere reveals the long history of print anonymity so central to the risks and benefits of the digital culture.

Evicted from Eternity: The Restructuring of Modern Rome

by Michael Herzfeld

Modern Rome is a city rife with contradictions. Once the seat of ancient glory, it is now often the object of national contempt. It plays a significant part on the world stage, but the concerns of its residents are often deeply parochial. And while they live in the seat of a world religion, Romans can be vehemently anticlerical. These tensions between the past and the present, the global and the local, make Rome fertile ground to study urban social life, the construction of the past, the role of religion in daily life, and how a capital city relates to the rest of the nation. Michael Herzfeld focuses on Rome's historic Monti district and the wrenching dislocation caused by rapid economical, political, and social change. Evicted from Eternity tells the story of the gentrification of Monti- once the architecturally stunning home of a community of artisans and shopkeepers now displaced by an invasion of rapacious real estate speculators, corrupt officials, dithering politicians, deceptive clerics, and shady thugs. As Herzfeld picks apart the messy story of Monti's transformation, he ranges widely over many aspects of life there and in the rest of the city, richly depicting the uniquely local landscape of globalization in Rome.

Evictions in the UK: Power, Housing, and Politics (Explorations in Housing Studies)

by Joe Crawford

Evictions in the UK examines the relationships between tenants, landlords, housing providers and government agencies and the tensions and conflicts that characterise these relations. The book shows how power dynamics are being reconfigured in the post-welfare context of the first quarter of the 21st century, as evictions for rent arrears are becoming one of the most significant threats to both the wellbeing of the social housing sector and the welfare of its tenants. Embracing both practical and critical approaches, this book offers a comprehensive understanding of the contradictory and thus controversial issue of evictions. It explores the range of perspectives involved in the practice – landlords carrying out evictions, those agencies providing legal assistance to evictees, as well as academics and institutions charged with researching and regulating the process. Drawing on three case studies relating to evictions across Scotland and England, this book provides a comprehensive look at the punitive consequences of poverty (evictions for rent arrears) and status (evictions under immigration law) that are applicable to social housing systems worldwide. Based on original, primary-source data, this book will be a key resource for academics and students as well as policy makers and practitioners in the fields of housing studies, planning, social welfare, and political sociology.

Evidence: A Context and Practice Casebook

by Pavel Wonsowicz

<p>This casebook is designed to engage students with a wide range of learning styles and to explore evidence law from the eyes of an advocate. Through a problem-centered approach that focuses on the gray areas of the Federal Rules of Evidence, students will develop a heightened sensitivity to factual and legal arguments that govern the admissibility of evidence. This focus on legal argumentation allows students to actively cultivate an understanding of the legal doctrine behind the Federal Rules of Evidence as well as the role that facts and narrative play in legal reasoning. Exercises, visual aids, and video supplements in each chapter allow students to assess their learning. <p>A single thread that runs through the book is video and case materials surrounding a North Carolina murder trial, State v. Peterson. The trial was memorialized in an award-winning documentary, The Staircase, directed by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. The casebook follows the trial, including the strategies undertaken by counsel and the battles over evidentiary issues that shaped both sides narratives in the trial. Video excerpts will be provided to the instructor to add a further dimension to student learning and to reach a broad array of learning styles. <p>The new second edition has incorporated pedagogical innovations (including new flowcharts to enhance understanding), updated the law based on amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence and recent Supreme Court cases, and developed new problems to explore the nuances in the law. The second edition is designed to make it easy for professors to incorporate best practices into their classes in order to train students to be self-directed, successful learners.</p>

Evidence: Poems

by Mary Oliver

Evidence and Evolution

by Elliott Sober

How should the concept of evidence be understood? And how does the concept of evidence apply to the controversy about creationism as well as to work in evolutionary biology about natural selection and common ancestry? In this rich and wide-ranging book, Elliott Sober investigates general questions about probability and evidence and shows how the answers he develops to those questions apply to the specifics of evolutionary biology. Drawing on a set of fascinating examples, he analyzes whether claims about intelligent design are untestable; whether they are discredited by the fact that many adaptations are imperfect; how evidence bears on whether present species trace back to common ancestors; how hypotheses about natural selection can be tested, and many other issues. His book will interest all readers who want to understand philosophical questions about evidence and evolution, as they arise both in Darwin's work and in contemporary biological research.
