Book Summary:

Poetry. Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women's Studies. Travel. This is an exploration into an obsession. THE ADULTEROUS CITIZEN contemplates the feeling of belonging, while yearning for the seduction of elsewhere. Tishani Doshi guides us through the streets of Cartagena, the seaside of Madras, and the bronze cliffs of Wales; through arcane museums and into strangers' houses; her poems, short stories and essays take us on a train ride across India into self-discovery and a teenager's failed escape on the American Road, into a house of childhood ghosts, and on a journey of a delusional widow in the Himalayas. Travelling along are those abstract countries of memory and the imagination—the author's constant companions, and the reason why she writes at all: because she just "won't shut up!"

Book Summary:

This book explores the relationship between sex and belonging in law and popular culture, arguing that contemporary citizenship is sexed, privatized, and self-disciplined. Former sexual outlaws have challenged their exclusion and are being incorporated into citizenship. But as citizenship becomes more sexed, it also becomes privatized and self-disciplined. The author explores these contesting representations of sex and belonging in films, television, and legal decisions. She examines a broad range of subjects, from gay men and lesbians, pornographers and hip hop artists, to women selling vibrators, adulterers, and single mothers on welfare. She observes cultural representations ranging from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to Dr. Phil, Sex in the City to Desperate Housewives. She reviews appellate court cases on sodomy and same-sex marriage, national welfare reform, and obscenity regulation. Finally, the author argues that these representations shape the terms of belonging and governance, producing good (and bad) sexual citizens, based on the degree to which they abide by the codes of privatized and self-disciplined sex.

Book Summary:

Everything you need to become a naturalized U.S. citizen The sooner a green card holder becomes a U.S. citizen, the sooner he or she gains a host of benefits: the right to vote and apply for certain federal jobs, faster immigration for family, protection against deportation or new anti-immigration legislation, and more. But the application process itself can be long and confusing—and at worst, create a risk of deportation. With Becoming a U.S. Citizen, you can save months, or even years, and avoid complications. Learn how to: make sure you are eligible for citizenship understand the risks and rewards of applying fill out application forms study for the citizenship exam interview successfully, and deal with any setbacks. Becoming a U.S. Citizen also shows you how to ask for a reduced fee or take advantage of special exceptions if you have a disability, are in the military, or are the spouse of a U.S. citizen. The 9th edition is updated with the latest laws, procedures, and government policies. It includes sample forms, handy checklists, and a study guide to the citizenship exam. IMPORTANT UPDATE Readers should take note that a new version of the Form N-400 application for citizenship came out in September 2019, subsequent to this book's printing. Fortunately it's almost identical: the same questions in the same order. Thus the instructions in Nolo's book are still valid. However, please take note of a printing error in this ninth edition. While the instructions correctly explain that only certain types of people can safely answer "No" to any of Questions 45-50 in Part 12 of the form (asking about things like support for the Constitution and willingness to serve in U.S. armed forces), and that most people should answer "Yes" to all, the sample form shows "X" marks in the "No" column. Readers should disregard this portion of the sample. For more info check the update here: https://www.nolo.com/legal-updates/new-n-400-naturalization-application-form-required-by-uscis.html

Book Summary:

As the idea of citizenship became more inclusive in the nineteenth century, England confronted the problem of those who seemed less fit for the responsibilities of political power. In a liberal society, fit behaviors had to originate in individual choices, rather than in coercion. Thus, social outreach became a matter not simply of giving information, but of educating and managing desire, which in turn required an active role in the very formation of subjectivity. Preparation for citizenship came to be seen as shaping the familial, moral, and physical environments required to foster a natural and healthy body and mind. The management of the social body through discourses of health became the principal means of negotiating these new questions of citizenship and the Condition of England. The Citizen's Body traces the construction of citizenship through the figure of the healthy body, in parliamentary debates on the franchise, in sanitary and housing publications, and in novels. The rhetoric of the healthy body as the ground of civic participation permeated the discourse of the novel, as shown in the work of Dickens, Oliphant, Disraeli, Eliot, and Gaskell. This book offers a new understanding of Victorian liberal thought, citizenship, the social body, and the Victorian novel.

Book Summary:

This collection of original and insightful essays was written by teachers seeking to restore literature as a powerful teaching tool in the undergraduate classroom. This book rejects postmodern theorizing, opting instead to assert that great poets, playwrights, and novelists self-consciously intended to impart compelling moral and political lessons. The essays focus on fundamental questions such as: What is justice? What does it mean to be a good human being? What are the strengths and weaknesses of a particular form of government? and, How are we to understand and resolve the tensions between private affections and public responsibilities? This is important reading for anyone concerned about the impact of postmodern literary analysis.

Book Summary:

South Africa offers a rich context for the study of the interrelationship between the media and identity. The essays collected in this book explore the many diverse elements of this interconnection and give fresh focus to topics that scholarship has tended to overlook, such as the pervasive impact of tabloid newspapers. Interrogating contemporary theory, the authors shed new light on how identities are constructed through the media and provide case studies that illustrate the complex process of identity renegotiation taking place currently in post-apartheid South Africa. The contributors include established scholars as well as many new voices. Collectively, they represent some of South Africa's finest media analysts pooling skills to grapple with one of the country's most vexing issues: who are we?

Book Summary:

The Catholic Church today finds herself at the very center of some of the most important and controversial moral and social developments of our day, including abortion, capital punishment, cloning, so-called gay marriage, pacifism and the morality of war, the ethics of healthcare in a technologically advanced but morally deficient society, and other related subjects. The Fellowship of Catholic Scholars attempts to address issues such as these by inviting the best and most knowledgeable scholars and commentators to speak at its annual conventions. This book brings together the addresses and responses devoted to these topics at the Fellowship's 26th annual convention in 2003. The contributors include the renowned John Finnis of Oxford and Notre Dame, Mary Eberstadt of the Hoover Institution, Christopher Wolfe of Marquette University, William E. May of the John Paul II Institute, Gerard V. Bradley of the Notre Dame Law School, Patrick Lee of Franciscan University, Steven A. Long of the University of St. Thomas, E. Christian Brugger of Loyola University in New Orleans, J. Brian Benestad of the University of Scranton, the Rev. Michael J. Baxter of Notre Dame, and, not least, the well-known moral theologian, Msgr. William B. Smith of St. Joseph's Seminary. Nowhere between two covers can there be found a sharper searchlight trained upon some of the principal moral and social issues of our day than in this collection.

Book Summary:

How did the Greeks and Romans perceive rape? How seriously was it taken, and who were seen as its main victims? The leading classical scholars who have contributed to this volume look at the social and legal realities of rape in the ancient world, and also at the numerous myths of rape which themselves may reflect real behavior and attitudes. Modern readers, used to a discourse which focuses on the question of consent to sexual activity and treats an unwilling partner as a victim worthy of sympathy, may find in ancient attitudes much that is disturbing. "Rape in Antiquity" covers topics arranged under six main headings: Athenian legal discourse; Greek myth; Greek art; Greek and Roman drama; Greek and Roman historiography; and Byzantine and Western medieval worlds.
