I know what I saw : modern-day encounters with monsters of new urban legend and ancient lore

July 16, 2019
Godfrey, Linda S., author.
[New York] : A TarcherPerigee Book, [2019]
322 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
"Which came first--the monster or the myth? Journalist Linda Godfrey investigates present-day encounters with mysterious creatures of old. The monsters of ancient mythology, folklore, and more contemporary urban legend have long captured the popular imagination. While most people in America today relegate monsters to just that--our imaginations--we continue to be fascinated by the unknown. Linda Godfrey is one of the country's leading authorities on modern-day monsters and has interviewed countless eyewitnesses to strange phenomena. Monsters evolve, taking on both new and familiar forms over time and across cultures. In this well-researched book, Godfrey explores uncanny encounters with werewolves, goatmen, Bigfoot, and more. In more than twenty-five years spent "chasing" monsters, Godfrey has found that it often remains unclear whether the sightings are simply mistaken animals, hoaxes, or coincidence. When all the speculation is said and done, one question remains for fans and researchers: Are the creatures "real," or are they entirely "other-world?" Godfrey suspects that it isn't an either/or question--our reality operates on a scale from dense matter to realms the human eye cannot see. As Godfrey investigates unexplained phenomena, her search for answers will fascinate casual observers and enthusiasts alike."

Abolitionist socialist feminism : radicalizing the next revolution

July 16, 2019
Eisenstein, Zillah R., author.
New York : Monthly Review Press, [2019]
160 pages ; 18 cm
A few foundational queries -- An intro of sorts -- A beginning of sorts -- After Trump's victory -- On feminisms -- Why socialist feminism is not enough -- Why antiracism is never enough -- The white mind and its injusticies -- And then there was the 2016 election -- When the critique of capital(ism) is not enough -- When the pope's pontifications are not enough -- When the proletariat is not white men -- The chaos of Trump's white-supremacist misogyny -- Revolutionizing #MeToo, #Timesup, #UsToo, #Sexualspring -- Framing abolitionism -- On building revolutionary connectors -- Creating revolutionary possibilities -- A few afterthoughts -- Acknowledgements.
A personal and political manifesto vying for an antiracist socialist feminist movement of movements. The world is burning, flooding, and politically exploding, to the point where it's become clear that neoliberal feminism--the kind that aims to elect The First Woman President--will never be enough. In this book, Zillah Eisenstein asks us to consider what it would mean to thread "socialism" to feminism; then, what it would mean to thread "abolitionism" to socialist feminism. She asks all of us, especially white women, to consider what it would mean to risk everything to abolish white supremacy, to uproot the structural knot of sex, race, gender, and class growing from that imperial whiteness. If we are to create a revolution that is totally liberatory, we need to pool together in a new working class, building a radical movement made of movements. Eisenstein's manifesto is built on almost half a century of her antiracist socialist feminist work. But now, she writes with a new urgency and imaginativeness. Eisenstein asks us not to be limited by reforms, but to radicalize each other on differing fronts. Our task is to build bridges, to connect disparate and passionate people across aisles, state lines, picket lines, and more. The genius force demanding that we abolish white supremacy can also create a new "we" for all of us--a humanity universally accepting of our complexities and differences. We are in uncharted waters, but that is exactly where we need to be.

Not just a feast for the eyes, Andalusia is also a food-lovers paradise, and Andalusia, award-winning chef José Pizarro takes readers on a journey through it's most delicious dishes. Blessed with land that produces magnificent wild mushrooms, delicious Jabugo ham, and some of the world's best olive oil and seafood, you'll be spoilt for choice. Many of the dishes go back to Moorish times - or earlier - and each of the eight provinces has their own special dish.

Written in José's signature fuss-free style, this is genuine, bold-tasting Spanish food, easily made at home. Andalusia is all about simple pleasures: a glass of wine or sherry, a piece of cheese or ham, and good company. And that's all you need to make yourself happy. It's all about the freshness, the quality and the diversity of the produce. Set to the backdrop of beautiful location shots, Andalusia is a must for anyone who loves authentic, simple Spanish food."

Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews : a Jewish life and the emergence of Christianity

July 15, 2019
Fredriksen, Paula.
New York : Vintage Books, 2000.
xix, 327 pages : illustrations, maps ; 21 cm
Introduction : the history of the historical Jesus -- Gospel truth and historical innocence. The synoptic gospels ; The synoptics and John ; Anachronism and willed innocence -- God and Israel in Roman antiquity. Purity ; Practice and tradition ; Jewish diversity and consensus in the time of Jesus ; Living the law : sacred space and sacred time -- Trajectories : Paul, the gospels, and Jesus. "For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord" : the kingdom ; "He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve" : the twelve ; "To the married I give charge, not I but the Lord" : ethics and the end ; "The one spirit gives the gifts of healing" : works and power ; "This is my body, which is for you" : the Lord's supper ; God's "Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh" : Jesus the Christ -- Contexts : the Galilee, Judea, and Jesus. Economics, politics and power ; The mission of John ; The followers of Jesus -- The days in Jerusalem. The call to Israel ; The crucified Messiah -- Afterword : Jesus, Christianity, and history.
Paula Fredriksen draws on the narratives of all four evangelists as well as both John and the Synoptics, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Jewish authorities of Jesus' time - Philo, Paul, and Josephus - who wrote in Greek, and early rabbinic writings. She shows us a historical Jesus living in the tumultuous world of late-Second Temple Judaism; an observant Jew of his time, a prophetic teacher who traveled through the villages of Galilee and frequently in and around Jerusalem.. 'At the center of her book she brings us to the questions raised by the least disputed fact about Jesus' life; his death.. 'Why was crucifixion chosen as the means of execution? If Jesus was executed as a political insurrectionist, why were none of his followers executed or even arrested?. 'The author's quest in search of the answers takes us through the religious world - Jewish and pagan - of Mediterranean antiquity, through the tangle of Judean and Galilean politics, and through the surprisingly intimate social interactions of Jewish and gentile communities in the ancient city. And it is through the Gospel of John - a text out of favor in most academic reconstructions - that she finds the answer to the interpretive dilemma posed by Jesus' execution and his disciples' survival.

Indecent advances : a hidden history of true crime and prejudice before Stonewall

Polchin, James, author.
244 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
Introduction: Criminalizing Queer Men -- When The Men Came Home: Sailors, Scandals, and Mysteries in the 1920s -- War on the Sex Criminal: Defining Psychopaths and Sex Deviants in the 1930s -- Behind the Headlines: Homosexual Hoodlums, Working-Class Criminality, and Queer Victims in the 1930s and 1940s -- Terror in the Streets: Indecent Advances, Homosexual Panic, and the Threat of Queer Men in Post-World War II America -- The Homosexual Next Door: Kinsey and the Private Life of Sex in the Cold War -- Stories of Prejudice and Suffering: Pervert Colonies, Homosexual Worlds, and the Birth of a New Minority -- Conclusion: Politics of Violence.
A skillful hybrid of true crime and social history that examines the relationship between the media and popular culture in the portrayal of crimes against gay men in the decades before Stonewall. Stories of murder have never been just about killers and victims. Instead, crime stories take the shape of their times and reflect cultural notions and prejudices. In Indecent Advances, James Polchin recovers and recounts queer stories from the crime pages--often lurid and euphemistic--that reveal the hidden history of violence against gay men. What was left unsaid in the crime pages provides insight into the figure of the queer man as both criminal and victim, offering readers tales of vice and violence that aligned gender and sexual deviance with tragic, gruesome endings. Victims were often reported as having made "indecent advances," forcing the accused's hands in self-defense and reducing murder charges to manslaughter. Published in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising on June 28, 1969, Indecent Advances investigates how queer men navigated a society that criminalized them and displayed little compassion for the violence they endured. Polchin shows, with masterful insight, how this discrimination was ultimately transformed by activists to help shape the burgeoning gay rights movement in the years leading up to Stonewall.

The heart of perfection: how the saints taught me to trade my dream of perfect for God's

July 15, 2019
Campbell, Colleen Carroll, 1974- author.
New York : Howard Books, 2019.
ix, 245 pages ; 22 cm
An ancient lie -- The struggle for gentleness -- Stalking joy -- Braving the waves -- The war within -- A passionate balance -- Pilgrims and strangers -- From head to heart.
An award-winning author, former presidential speechwriter, and mother of four weaves stories of her own struggles against comparison and impossible expectations with those of seven ex-perfectionist saints (and one heretic) who show us how to pursue a new kind of perfection: freedom in Christ. Spiritual perfectionism--an obsession with flawlessness rooted in the belief that we can earn God's love--is the most dangerous form of perfectionism because so many of us mistake it for virtue, or deny that it afflicts us at all. Its toxic cycle of pride, sin, shame, blame, and despair distorts our vision, dulls our faith, and leads us to view others through the same hypercritical lens we think God is using to view us. As a lifelong overachiever who drafted her first résumé in sixth grade and spell-checked her high-school boyfriend's love letters, Colleen Carroll Campbell knows something about the perfectionist trap. But it was only after she became a mother that she started to see how insidiously perfectionism had infected her spiritual life, how lethal it could be to her happiness and her family, and how disproportionately it afflicts the people working hardest to serve God. In the ruins of her own perfectionist mistakes, Colleen dug into Scripture and the lives of the canonized saints for answers. She discovered to her surprise that many holy men and women she once saw as encouraging her perfectionism were, in fact, recovering perfectionists. And their grace-fueled victory over this malady--not perfectionist striving--was the key to their heroic virtue and contagious joy. In The Heart of Perfection, Colleen weaves the stories and wisdom of these saints with Scripture and beautifully crafted tales of her own trial-and-error experiments in applying that wisdom to her life. She introduces us to such saints as Jane de Chantal, a single mother who conquered her impatience only after her ex-perfectionist friend Saint Francis de Sales convinced her to trade punishing prayer regimens for the tougher discipline of showing gentleness to rude in-laws, rowdy kids, and herself. Colleen describes the battle against obsessive guilt that turned timid people-pleaser Alphonsus Liguori into a fearless defender of God's mercy; the discernment rules that helped Ignatius of Loyola overcome crippling discouragement and distraction; the concern for reputation that almost cost the world the radical witness of Francis of Assisi; and the biblical work-life balance that Benedict of Nursia pioneered after years of driving himself and others too hard--and without surrendering his holy zeal. Gorgeously written and deeply insightful, Colleen Carroll Campbell's The Heart of Perfection shows that the solution to perfectionism is not to squelch our hard-wired desires for excellence but to allow God to purify and redirect them, by swapping the chains of control and comparison for pursuit of a new kind of perfection: the freedom of the children of God.

Moral vision : seeing the world with love and justice

McCarthy, David Matzko, author.
xii, 195 pages ; 23 cm
Moral vision -- Attentiveness -- Seeing the good -- A journey -- Passions -- Moral reason -- Art, virtue, and law -- Prudence -- Faith -- Seeing the way of God -- Providence -- Incarnation -- Church -- A life of prayer.
In this new textbook two Catholic ethicists with extensive teaching experience present a moral theology based on vision. David Matzko McCarthy and James M. Donohue draw widely from the Western philosophical tradition while integrating biblical and theological themes in order to explore such fundamental questions as What is good? The fourteen chapters in Moral Vision are short and thematic. Substantive study questions engage with primary texts and encourage students to apply theory to everyday life and common human experiences. The book is accessibly written and flexible enough to fit into any undergraduate or seminary course on ethics.

Paternity : the elusive quest for the father

July 15, 2019
Milanich, Nara B., 1972- author.
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2019.
352 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
Prologue: Who's your daddy? -- Looking for the father -- The charlatan and the oscillophore -- Blood work -- City of strangers -- Bodies of evidence -- Jewish fathers, Aryan genealogies -- To the white husband a black baby -- Citizen fathers and paper sons -- Epilogue: Paternity in the age of DNA.
For most of human history, the notion that paternity was uncertain appeared to be an immutable law of nature. The unknown father provided entertaining plotlines from Shakespeare to the Victorian novelists and lay at the heart of inheritance and child support disputes. But in the 1920s new scientific advances promised to solve the mystery of paternity once and for all. The stakes were high: fatherhood has always been a public relationship as well as a private one. It confers not only patrimony and legitimacy but also a name, nationality, and identity. The new science of paternity, with methods such as blood typing, fingerprinting, and facial analysis, would bring clarity to the conundrum of fatherhood--or so it appeared. Suddenly, it would be possible to establish family relationships, expose adulterous affairs, locate errant fathers, unravel baby mix-ups, and discover one's true race and ethnicity. Tracing the scientific quest for the father up to the present, with the advent of seemingly foolproof DNA analysis, Nara Milanich shows that the effort to establish biological truth has not ended the quest for the father. Rather, scientific certainty has revealed the fundamentally social, cultural, and political nature of paternity. As Paternity shows, in the age of modern genetics the answer to the question "Who's your father?" remains as complicated as ever.-- Provided by publisher.
