"One of the country's most distinguished intellectuals [and] one of its most provocative." -The New York Times Bookish and retiring, Garry Wills has been an outsider in the academy, in journalism, even in his church. Yet these qualities have, paradoxically, prompted people to share intimate insights with him- perhaps because he is not a rival, a competitor, or a threat. Sometimes this made him the prey of con men like conspiratorialist Mark Lane or civil rights leader James Bevel. At other times it led to close friendship with such people as William F. Buckley, Jr., or singer Beverly Sills. The result is the most personal book Wills has ever written. With his dazzling style and journalist's eye for detail, Wills brings history to life, whether it's the civil rights movement; the protests against the Vietnam War; the presidential campaigns of Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton; or the set of Oliver Stone's Nixon. Illuminating and provocative, Outside Looking In is a compelling chronicle of an original thinker at work in remarkable times.

Looking In is an intriguing twisting story about the frailty of a struggling marriage and the evolution of a new found companion. Susan has been sinking into complacency for many years, but when she decides to start making changes in her life, she feels like she is being watched. First fear consumes her, and then intrigue compels her. Confident in her skills as an ex-soldier, she thinks she can protect herself from her stalker. She warns her husband Jerry about what has been going on but he dismisses her concern for paranoia. She is on a mission to find out who is watching her, and perhaps stalking her. During her quest to find her stalker, she befriends a homeless man that turns out to be more-than-meets-the-eye. The research into the homeless man’s last name turns up numerous possibilities but one seems to stand out, a technology company with ties to the government. While she focuses her time and energy on helping him, her marriage plummets further. Susan wonders if her marriage is going to survive or even if she wants it to. Susan’s curiosity is piqued during her research and after she gets hired on to Johnson Tech she finds some alarming information. You never know who can see you, or how they can see you; just know you’re always being watched. Susan is torn between the physical connection she has for her new companion, and the bond she once had with her husband. When too many warning signs surface, Susan and her long-time friend Jennifer try to figure out why people are being singled out on secret video files at Johnson Tech. Jennifer is leery of Susan's new friend and constantly reminds her to be careful. Will Susan listen to her friend, or will she let her inhibitions go?

Using recent scholarship in ethnography and popular culture, Miller throws light on both what these series present and what is missing, how various long-standing issues are raised and framed differently over time, and what new issues appear. She looks at narrative arc, characterization, dialogue, and theme as well as how inflections of familiar genres like family adventure, soap opera, situation comedy, and legal drama shape both the series and viewers' expectations. Miller discusses Radisson, Forest Rangers and other children's series in the 1960s and early 1970s, as well as Beachcombers, Spirit Bay, The Rez, and North of 60 - series whose complex characters created rewarding relationships while dealing with issues ranging from addiction to unemployment to the aftermath of the residential school system.

<I>On the Outside Looking In(dian) analyzes works over the past century translated into or written in English by feminist Indian women writers such as Krupabai Satthianadhan, Rokeya Sakhewat Hossein, Maitreyi Devi, Kamala Das, Anita Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, and others. These writers condemn patriarchal customs and laws for depriving Indian women - of all castes and classes, as well as women of other cultures - of their basic human rights by sanctioning child marriage, <I>sati, purdah, and the wearing of the <I>burqa, while prohibiting widow remarriage, the expression of sexuality, and the pursuit of an education to promote self-sufficiency, and equal economic, political, and social status with men.

Consciousness and Cosmos

Most books on science and mysticism attempt to link modern physics to philosophic views of consciousness. This book explores the two as parallel processes-one outer, one inner. Our outward search is for objective reality- "out there" in the world. But what we experience as outer is linked to what we can know in ourselves subjectively. The inward search is for that level of consciousness that underlies all subjective experience, spoken of by the mystics. Like other recent others, Drs. Kafatos and Karatou find parallels between Eastern thought and recent scientific developments in quantum theory and cosmology. But they go farther and hold that the realms of consciousness and the objective world are complementary aspect of the same reality. Their approach is fresh and unique and shows how we are involved in the cosmic process.

Essays on Mormon History, Theology, and Culture

This book contains fifteen essays, each first presented as the annual Tanner Lecture at the conference of the Mormon History Association by a leading scholar. Renowned in their own specialties but relatively new to the study of Mormon history at the time of their lectures, these scholars approach Mormon history from a wide variety of perspectives, including such concerns as gender, identity creation, and globalization. Several of these essays place Mormon history within the currents of American religious history--for example, by placing Joseph Smith and other Latter-day Saints in conversation with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nat Turner, fellow millenarians, and freethinkers. Other essays explore the creation of Mormon identities, demonstrating how Mormons created a unique sense of themselves as a distinct people. Historians of the American West examine Mormon connections with American imperialism, the Civil War, and the wider cultural landscape. Finally the essayists look at continuing Latter-day Saint growth around the world, within the context of the study of global religions. Examining Mormon history from an outsider's perspective, the essays presented in this volume ask intriguing questions, share fresh insights and perspectives, analyze familiar sources in unexpected ways, and situate research on the Mormon past within broader scholarly debates.

Looking In: Being an Expat Tween discusses the challenges faced by expatriate tweens ages 9 to 12 years old. It is designed as a self-help book. Each chapter discusses and expands on a topic, and provides exercises to help the tween gain a better understanding of who he is and how to deal with issues in a peaceful and empowering manner. At the back of the book is a chapter titled "Deepen Your Knowledge," which contains extra details for some of the topics discussed in various chapters. The chapter titled "How To ..." offers quick tips on dealing with stress, parents, and projects. Born in Uganda, first-time author Sainoor Premji lives in Canada. She taught for many years and now works in the alternate health care field. "When I was teaching in Tokyo, we found it very difficult to find self-help books for young adults between the ages of 9 to 12. Most books were either too young or geared toward teenagers. This got me thinking about how this age group, especially the expat children, could use a self-help book that would meet their needs." Publisher's website: http: //sbpra.com/SainoorPremji
