Download Strangers In Zion books, "This story has been virtually ignored by historians of fundamentalism and historians of religion in the South. Glass has written a history that fills a significant gap in the historical literature on fundamentalism and on religion in the American South. As such, he lays the groundwork for understanding the South's contribution to the growth of the religious right in second half of the twentieth-century."--BOOK JACKET.

Brothers And Strangers

Strangers In Zion by Ibrahim Sundiata, Brothers And Strangers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Brothers And Strangers books, Unprecedented in scope and detail, Brothers and Strangers is a vivid history of how the mythic Africa of the black American imagination ran into the realities of Africa the place. In the 1920s, Marcus Garvey—convinced that freedom from oppression was not possible for blacks in the Americas—led the last great African American emigrationist movement. His U.S.-based Universal Negro Improvement Association worked with the Liberian government to create a homeland for African Americans. Ibrahim Sundiata explores the paradox at the core of this project: Liberia, the chosen destination, was itself racked by class and ethnic divisions and—like other nations in colonial Africa—marred by labor abuse. In an account based on extensive archival research, including work in the Liberian National Archives, Sundiata explains how Garvey’s plan collapsed when faced with opposition from the Liberian elite, opposition that belied his vision of a unified Black World. In 1930 the League of Nations investigated labor conditions and, damningly, the United States, land of lynching and Jim Crow, accused Liberia of promoting “conditions analogous to slavery.” Subsequently various plans were put forward for a League Mandate or an American administration to put down slavery and “modernize” the country. Threatened with a loss of its independence, the Liberian government turned to its “brothers beyond the sea” for support. A varied group of white and black anti-imperialists, among them W. E. B. Du Bois, took up the country’s cause. In revealing the struggle of conscience that bedeviled many in the black world in the past, Sundiata casts light on a human rights predicament which, he points out, continues in twenty-first-century African nations as disparate as Sudan, Mauritania, and the Ivory Coast.

Mad Mothers Bad Mothers And What A Good Mother Would Do

Strangers In Zion by Sarah LaChance Adams, Mad Mothers Bad Mothers And What A Good Mother Would Do Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mad Mothers Bad Mothers And What A Good Mother Would Do books, When a mother kills her child, we call her a bad mother, but, as this book shows, even mothers who intend to do their children harm are not easily categorized as "mad" or "bad." Maternal love is a complex emotion rich with contradictory impulses and desires, and motherhood is a conflicted state in which women constantly renegotiate the needs mother and child, the self and the other. Applying care ethics philosophy and the work of Emmanuel Levinas, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Simone de Beauvoir to real-world experiences of motherhood, Sarah LaChance Adams throws the inherent tensions of motherhood into sharp relief, drawing a more nuanced portrait of the mother and child relationship than previously conceived. The maternal example is particularly instructive for ethical theory, highlighting the dynamics of human interdependence while also affirming separate interests. LaChance Adams particularly focuses on maternal ambivalence and its morally productive role in reinforcing the divergence between oneself and others, helping to recognize the particularities of situation, and negotiating the difference between one's own needs and the desires of others. She ultimately argues maternal filicide is a social problem requiring a collective solution that ethical philosophy and philosophies of care can inform.

Zion

Strangers In Zion by Michelle N. Gibbs, Zion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Zion books, Philosophically speaking, Zion is a discovery of spirituality, an aspiration to be free of worldly desires when seeking truth and righteousness and salvation through Jesus Christ. The world can be disappointing. In the light, beyond mortal understanding are signs of true immortality, glimpses of heaven’s dew that appears to be cheated, yet rewarding because Christ is evident through the Word of God and Zion’s faith. She was used and abused by so many, such as her parents, her paramours, her neighbors, her former employer, to even that of the legal system that is supposed to be circumcised within the law. Her rights were violated, and there was nothing she could do but trust God. She is in the law while out of the system as the system appears to be lawless. Zion within solitude is free to understand what her strongholds are. While Christ is within, she submerges from them with the help of her friend Jeremiah. Both have a fetish for Asian culture, philosophical discourse, and a calling only God can sustain. Through Zion’s revelations from beginning to end, such as the falls, the floods, the great escapes, and the promise, are all made into fruition.

Stranger At Home

Strangers In Zion by Jacob Neusner, Stranger At Home Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Stranger At Home books, Jacob Neusner, the preeminent Judaic scholar who is himself a Jew and a Zionist, here explores the issue he believes to be at the very heart of American Judaism: how two events remote from the experience of most American Jews have become the twin pillars upon which their world view is built. These two events, the murder of six million Jews between 1933 and 1945 and the subsequent creation of the State of Israel, form what Neusner calls the myth of the Holocaust and redemption. 'Stranger at Home' scrutinizes the paradox of a central myth generated out of events never witnessed and a place never inhabited by the majority of American Jewry. Written over a period of nearly twenty years, these systematically related essays begin with an analysis of the social and psychological problems confronting American Jews. The second and third set of studies concern the implications of the two elements that constitute the mythic vision that begins in death, the Holocaust, and is completed by rebirth, Israel. Finally the author offers his view of the actual and desirable role of Zionism for the Jewish community outside of Israel. Neusner's penetrating exposition sheds light on the search of an American minority culture for identity in the context of freedom and free choice and on the process of adaptation of an archaic religious tradition to modernity.
