Mindfulness and its discontents : education, self, and social transformation

May 23, 2019
Forbes, David, 1949- author.
Winnipeg, Manitoba ; Halifax, Nova Scotia : Fernwood Publishing, 2019.
246 pages ; 23 cm
"Mindfulness, a way to alleviate suffering by realizing the impermanence of the self and our interdependence with others, has been severed from its Buddhist roots. In the late-stage-capitalist, neoliberal, solipsistic West, it becomes McMindfulness, a practice that instead shores up the privatized self, and is corporatized and repackaged as a strategy to cope with our stressful society through an emphasis on self-responsibility and self-promotion. Rather than a way to promote human development and social justice, McMindfulness covertly reinforces neoliberalism and capitalism, the very self-promoting systems that worsen our suffering."-- Provided by publisher.

How to forget : a daughter's memoir

May 23, 2019
Mulgrew, Kate, 1955- author.
340 pages ; 24 cm
"In this profoundly honest and examined memoir about returning to Iowa to care for her ailing parents, the star of Orange Is the New Black and New York Times bestselling author of Born with Teeth takes us on an unexpected journey of loss, betrayal, and the transcendent nature of a daughter's love for her parents. They say you can't go home again. But when her father is diagnosed with aggressive lung cancer and her mother with atypical Alzheimer's, New York-based actress Kate Mulgrew returns to her hometown in Iowa to spend time with her parents and care for them in the time they have left. The months Kate spends with her parents in Dubuque -- by turns turbulent, tragic, and joyful -- lead her to reflect on each of their lives and how they shaped her own. Those ruminations are transformed when, in the wake of their deaths, Kate uncovers long-kept secrets that challenge her understanding of the unconventional Irish Catholic household in which she was raised. How to Forget is a considered portrait of a mother and a father, an emotionally powerful memoir that demonstrates how love fuses children and parents, and an honest examination of family, memory, and indelible loss."-- Provided by publisher.

xiii, 496 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
Key west by way of Havana, newlyweds passing through -- Oak Park and the war, fathers and sons (1899-1928) -- Adventures as close as Cuba (1928-1934) -- An island like a ship (1934-1936) -- A romantic getaway for two in Civil War Spain (1936-1939) -- Hemingway's Cuban family (1939-1961) -- Don Quixote vs. the wolf pack (1942-1944) -- Hemingway liberates the Ritz Hotel bar and pursues the Third Reich -- The return to the isle of paradise with Mrs. Mary Welsh Hemingway (1945-1947) -- A middle-aged author's obsession with a young Italian aristocrat (1947-1951) -- A citizen of Cojimar and a Cuban nobel prize (1952-1955) -- A North American writer and a Cuban Revolution (1956-1960) -- New year, new government (1959-1960) -- El commandante meets his favorite author -- Hemingway never left Cuba: a lion's suicide (1960-1961) -- Finca Vigia becomes the Finca Viga Museum (1960-present) -- Afterword: when your neighbor is Ernest Hemingway: Cojmar and San Francisco de Paula.
"Ernest Hemingway first visited Cuba in 1928, and the experience would change the course of his entire life. He settled in Cojimar--a tiny fishing village east of Havana--in 1940, and came to think of himself as Cuban. What he discovered there, a new world counterpart to his beloved Spain, provided him the material for the novel that would rescue his uncertain career. The Old Man and the Sea won him a Pulitzer Prize and, one year later, earned literature's highest honor--the Nobel Prize. Recognizing his debt, Hemingway announced to the press that he had won the prize "as a citizen of Cojimar." This is the Hemingway story that has never been told: the full story of Papa as an expatriate in Cuba, an ingenuous American opportunist whose natural openness and curiosity connected with the distinctive warmth of the Cuban character. In Cuba he formed key artistic relationships -- including a longstanding affair with a previously undiscovered Cuban lover, Leopoldina Roderiguez -- and became the Nobel Prize-winning literary legend we know today"-- Provided by publisher.

Histories of violence : post-war critical thought

May 23, 2019
xi, 242 pages ; 22 cm
The subject of violence / Brad Evans and Terrell Carver -- Walter Benjamin / James Martel -- Hannah Arendt / Kimberly Hutchings -- Frantz Fanon / Lewis R. Gordon -- Michel Foucault / Brad Evans -- Jacques Derrida / Gregg Lambert -- Gilles Deleuze / Ian Buchanan -- Judith Butler / Jelke Boesten -- Zygmunt Bauman / Keith Tester -- Paul Virilio / Mark Lacy -- Giorgio Agamben / Marcelo Svirsky -- Slavoj Žižek / Paul A. Taylor -- Cynthia Enloe / Terrell Carver.
An essential introduction to post-war critical thought on the problem of violence. While there is a tacit appreciation that freedom from violence will lead to more prosperous relations among peoples, violence continues to be deployed for various political and social ends. Yet the problem of violence still defies neat description, subject to many competing interpretations. Histories of Violence offers an accessible yet compelling examination of the problem of violence as it appears in the corpus of canonical figures - from Hannah Arendt to Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault to Slavoj Zizek - who continue to influence and inform contemporary political, philosophical, sociological, cultural, and anthropological study. Written by a team of internationally renowned experts, this is an essential interrogation of post-war critical thought as it relates to violence.

"When Lincoln was assassinated and Andrew Johnson became President, a fraught time in America became perilous. Congress was divided over how Reconstruction should be accomplished and the question of black suffrage. The South roiled with violence, lawlessness, and efforts to preserve the pre-Civil War society. Andrew Johnson--chosen as Vice President for electability, because he was a Southern Democrat--had no interest in following Lincoln's agenda. With the unchecked power of executive orders, Johnson pardoned the rebel states and their leaders, opposed black suffrage, and called Reconstruction unnecessary. Congress decided to take action against a President who acted like a king. With extensive research and profound insights, Brenda Wineapple makes this overlooked historical period come alive with important new insights. The impeachment--the first in American history--was the last-ditch, patriotic effort make the goals of the Civil War a reality, and to make the Union one again"-- Provided by publisher.

85 pages ; 22 cm
Chapter 1. Introduction -- Chapter 2. Forenames -- Chapter 3. Surnames -- Chapter 4. Toponyms -- Chapter 5. Selected bibliography of legal change of names.
"Names, like people, have lives of their own, which is why Lloyd Bockstruck's new book about the serendipity and life's choices that can alter our family names is must-reading for every researcher. Mr. Bockstruck, one of America's foremost genealogists and the former genealogy librarian at the Dallas Public Library, has distilled the wisdom of a lifetime about the vagaries of names into this work. Eminently readable, The Name IS the Game is a collection of illustrations and cautionary tales that can help family historians surmount the obstacles or avert the pitfalls associated with naming practices throughout the centuries. The book is divided into five chapters, and it engages the reader at the get-go. For instance, in the introductory first chapter Bockstruck relates a number of first-hand accounts that fostered his early fascination with names, such as his initial failure to find the tombstone of German great-aunt Barbara Baker (born Barbara Becker). The introduction's high point is the incredible story of the peregrinating Scots colonist Ian Ferguson, whose name was recorded as Johann Feuerstein when he was among the Pennsylvania Palatine immigrants, and was later recorded as John Flint when he moved to Philadelphia. Two generations later, one of his grandsons, Peter Flint, moved to Louisiana, where he was recorded as Pierre a Fusil, only to end up as Peter Gunn when he settled in Texas after the Civil War"--Publisher description.

Hate : the rising tide of anti-Semitism in France (and what it means for us)

May 21, 2019
Weitzmann, Marc, author.
xxvi, 290 pages ; 24 cm
The return of the repressed -- The year of the quenelle -- The little prince of Maghreb -- The Algerian factor -- Words and blood -- A revelation and a denial: the Toulouse and Montauban killings -- The terror wave of 2015-2016: beyond the real and the fake -- The war within.
"From an award-winning journalist, a provocative, deeply reported expose of the history and present crisis of anti-Semitism in France--and its dire consequences for the rest of Europe. Hate explores the alarming history and present predicament of anti-Semitism in France. By examining the issue at local, international, and personal levels--interviewing everyday French men and women as well as powerful leaders such as National Front president Marine Le Pen--Weitzmann attempts to understand how nine Jews have been murdered by French citizens in the last eight years, and how France has become the number one country from which Western jihadists flee to join ISIS and other extremist Middle Eastern organizations. How do contemporary French Jews grapple with these troubling facts, and with the historical legacies of the French Revolution, the Holocaust, and the Gaullist "Arab-French policy"? While internationally minded consumers of the news may have some knowledge of the events Weitzmann describes--including the 2013 "Day of Anger" and the rise of France's popular, and famously anti-Semitic, comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala--these controversies are largely unknown in the States, and utterly shocking in the unity Weitzmann gives them here. In his hands, these events are not just the story of French anti-Semitism, but that of the breakdown of a major Western power, of the dark side of our global age"-- Provided by publisher.

Music after the fall : modern composition and culture since 1989

May 21, 2019
Rutherford-Johnson, Tim, author.
xii, 348 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm
1989 and after -- Mediation and the marketplace -- Permission: freedom, choice, and the body -- Fluidity: digital translations, displacements, and journeys -- Mobility: worldwide flows, networks, and archipelagos -- Superabundance: spectacle, scale, and excess -- Loss: ruins, memorials, and documents -- Recovery: gaps between past and present.
This is the first book to survey contemporary Western art music within the transformed political, cultural, and technological environment of the post-Cold War era. In this book, Tim Rutherford-Johnson considers musical composition against this changed backdrop, placing it in the context of globalization, digitization, and new media. Drawing connections with the other arts, in particular visual art and architecture, he expands the definition of Western art music to include forms of composition, experimental music, sound art, and crossover work from across the spectrum, inside and beyond the concert hall. Each chapter is a critical consideration of a wide range of composers, performers, works, and institutions, and develops a broad and rich picture of the new music ecosystem, from North American string quartets to Lebanese improvisers, from electroacoustic music studios in South America to ruined pianos in the Australian outback. Rutherford-Johnson puts forth a new approach to the study of contemporary music that relies less on taxonomies of style and technique than on the comparison of different responses to common themes of permission, fluidity, excess, and loss.

Collected poems from Americas searching and thoughtful philosopher-poet . . . There s something Comforting about rituals renewed, even adolescents pipe dreams: They ll find out soon enough, and meanwhile find their places In the eternal scenery, less auguries or cautionary tales Than parts of an unchanging whole, as ripe for contemplation As a planisphere or the clouds: the vexed destinies, the shared life, The sempiternal spectacle of someone preaching to the choir While walking backwards in the moment on a warm spring afternoon. John Koethes poemsalways dynamic and in process, never static or completeluxuriate in the questions that punctuate the most humdrum of routines, rendering a robust portrait of an individual: complicated, quotidian, and resounding with truth. Gathering for the first time his impressive and award-winning body of work, published between 1966 and 2016, Walking Backwards introduces this gifted poet to a new, wider readership.
