  • Peacemakers: A Christian View of War and Peace

    by Peter Dixon
    Do you wonder what 'Blessed are the peacemakers' means in practice? When is war a just war? Should outsiders intervene in civil wars, and how? How can Christians effectively engage in resolving conflict? How do we understand relational peacebuilding? How do we achieve reconciliation? Peter Dixon offers a moral framework on which to base our thinking about war and peace, undergirded by a solid confidence in God's sovereignty, as we face the uncertainty of the real world. 'I don't think we nee... more

  • Waiting for 'Humanity'

    by Kathryn Bullington
    A poetic and stern commentary on modern times, Bullington frames the struggles of the turn of the century, including American Exceptionalism, racism, and civility, with the specter of past sentiments. 'Waiting for Humanity' puts an urgency to the question, "Where will we go from here?" while also demystifying paths that U.S. culture can take. A short, yet powerful expose of modern times in the U.S.A.
  • The Constitution Needs a Good Party: Good Government Comes from Good Boundaries

    by James Anthony
    America’s individual freedom changed the world. Now, though, our government is out of control. We need representatives who use their constitutional powers against others in government. To get them, sustainably, we need to build a good party, with a party declaration, constitution, and caucuses. Here’s how. It’s the one solution; and a quick read.
  • Breakdown: A Clinician's Experience in a Broken System of Emergency Psychiatry

    by Lynn Nanos

    When hospitals release seriously mentally ill patients too soon without outpatient follow-up, the patients can end up homeless, jailed, harming others, or even dead. When patients are deemed suitable for inpatient care, they can languish for weeks in hospital emergency departments before placements become available. Meanwhile, patients who fake the need for care are smoothly and swiftly moved to inpatient settings. Breakdown opens a dialogue with anyone interested in improv... more

  • Anti Zionism - Anti Semitism

    by johan eary
    The past years, the scourge of Anti Semitism has made a come back, with a vengeance. Hardly a day passes when acts of hatred toward Jews are not reported both in Europe and in the United States. At the same time, hardly a day passes in which the state of Israel and the Palestinian question, as well as the entire region of the Middle East are not mentioned in the media. These topics often give rise to passionate and heated debate. In the course of these debates, the specter of anti Semitism of... more
  • Reframing Poverty: New Thinking and Feeling About Humanity's Greatest Challenge

    by Eric Meade

    Everyone has an explanation for poverty. The poor lack personal responsibility. There aren’t enough jobs. The stresses of poverty keep people poor. Poor people have a “culture of poverty.” The debate among these different explanations has gone on for centuries without meaningfully improving our understanding of the issue.

    We choose one of these views largely based on the experiences of our own lives, and on those of our families. By looking at why we each choo... more

  • The People's Republic of the Disappeared

    by Peter Dahlin

    “You are now under residential surveillance at a designated location. Your only right is to obey.” 

    With these words, Chinese lawyer Xie Yang was introduced to the brutality of Residential Surveillance at a Designated Location (RSDL), China’s rapidly expanding system for enforced disappearances. Little is known of RSDL, or what happens inside. The People’s Republic of the Disappeared will change that.

    RSDL facilities, often s... more

  • Trial By Media

    by Peter Dahlin
    There is something terribly wrong with CCTV, China’s state broadcaster. In China, anyone seen as a threat to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can be disappeared. Some are held in secret prisons, while some are placed in detention centers under false names. Family, lawyers, and even China’s state prosecutors are denied access. Many months later, they appear on CCTV, confessing to vague almost non-crimes, criticizing themselves, or discrediting others. This book, utilizing first-person acc... more
  • Populisms. A Quick Immersion

    by Carlos de la Torre
    Populisms. A Quick Immersion analyzes populism globally and through the lens of Latin America where populists have governed since the 1930s and 1940s up to the present. When populism is analyzed globally, the novelty is not its presence in most regions of the world. After all, populists have challenged the power of political and economic elites since the nineteenth century, and the first self-described Populist Party was formed in the U.S. in 1891. What is new is that populists are in office not... more
  • Why The Left Is Right: The Sociology Of An Ideology

    by Dustin Hartley
    Dustin Hartley argues a strong case for liberalism. Are we bogged down by ideology? Or is having a political leaning perhaps a good thing? The thesis of this book is that there are very good reasons -- moral, economic, and sociological -- for being a liberal.
  • Objection: Disgust, Morality, and the Law

    by Carlton Patrick
    Why do we consider incest wrong, even when it occurs between consenting adults unable to have children? Why are words that gross us out more likely to be deemed "obscene" and denied the protection of the First Amendment? In a world where a gruesome photograph can decisively influence a jury and homosexual behavior is still condemned by some as "unnatural," it is worth asking: is our legal system really governed by the power of reason? Or do we allow a primitive human emotion, disgust, to guide u... more
