Perhaps the most challenging and important role that adults play in society is that of raising children. Every parent and teacher hopes to help children develop into healthy, caring, and intelligent adults. Keeping Kids Safe, Healthy, and Smart is designed for all adults who interact with kids-whether they be parents, teachers, or other caregivers-and provides specific suggestions for keeping children safe from hidden and open dangers wherever they spend time. This book is organized around three different themes of major threats and hidden dangers to children in our country: threats in school spaces (e.g., in classrooms, on buses, on playgrounds, and on sports teams); threats in cyberspace (bullying or harassment and child predators or child pornography), threats in other spaces where children work and play (intrapersonal and interpersonal violence including a wide range of threats such as self-mutilation, accidents, abuse, environmental threats, drugs, and mental illness).

The Multifaith Movement: Global Risks and Cosmopolitan Solutions

Author: Anna Halafoff

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9400752105

Category: Religion

Page: 184

View: 6162

This book documents the ultramodern rise of the multifaith movement, as mulitfaith initiatives have been increasingly deployed as cosmopolitan solutions to counter global risks such as terrorism and climate change at the turn of the 21st century. These projects aim to enhance common security, particularly in Western societies following the events of September 11, 2001 and the July 2005 London bombings, where multifaith engagement has been promoted as a strategy to counter violent extremism. The author draws on interviews with 56 leading figures in the field of multifaith relations, including Paul Knitter, Eboo Patel, Marcus Braybrooke, Katherine Marshall, John Voll and Krista Tippett. Identifying the principle aims of the multifaith movement, the analysis explores the benefits—and challenges—of multifaith engagement, as well as the effectiveness of multifaith initiatives in countering the process of radicalization. Building on notions of cosmopolitanism, the work proposes a new theoretical framework termed ‘Netpeace’, which recognizes the interconnectedness of global problems and their solutions. In doing so, it acknowledges the capacity of multi-actor peacebuilding networks, including religious and state actors, to address the pressing dilemmas of our times. The primary intention of the book is to assist in the formation of new models of activism and governance, founded on a ‘politics of understanding’ modeled by the multifaith movement.

Literary Names: Personal Names in English Literature

Why do authors use pseudonyms and pen-names, or ingeniously hide names in their work with acrostics and anagrams? How has the range of permissible given names changed and how is this reflected in literature? Why do some characters remain mysteriously nameless? In this rich and learned book, Alastair Fowler explores the use of names in literature of all periods - primarily English but also Latin, Greek, French, and Italian - casting an unusual and rewarding light on the work of literature itself. He traces the history of names through Homer, Spenser, Shakespeare, Milton, Thackeray, Dickens, Joyce, and Nabokov, showing how names often turn out to be the thematic focus. Fowler shows that the associations of names, at first limited, become increasingly salient and sophisticated as literature itself develops.
