The activist tradition in American literature has long testified to the power of words to change people and the power of people to change the world, yet in recent years many professional humanists have chosen to distract themselves with a postmodern fundamentalism of indeterminacy and instability rather than engage with social and political issues. Throughout her bold and provocative call to action, Elizabeth Ammons argues that the responsibility now facing humanists is urgent: inside and outside academic settings, they need to revive the liberal arts as a progressive cultural force that offers workable ideas and inspiration in the real-world struggle to achieve social and environmental justice. Brave New Words challenges present and future literary scholars and teachers to look beyond mere literary critique toward the concrete issue of social change and how to achieve it. Calling for a profound realignment of thought and spirit in the service of positive social change, Ammons argues for the continued importance of multiculturalism in the twenty-first century despite attacks on the concept from both right and left. Concentrating on activist U.S. writers—from ecocritics to feminists to those dedicated to exposing race and class biases, from Jim Wallis and Cornel West to Winona LaDuke and Paula Moya and many others—she calls for all humanists to link their work to the progressive literature of the last half century, to insist on activism in the service of positive change as part of their mission, and to teach the power of hope and action to their students. As Ammons clearly demonstrates, much of American literature was written to expose injustice and motivate readers to work for social transformation. She challenges today’s academic humanists to address the issues of hope and purpose by creating a practical activist pedagogy that gives students the knowledge to connect their theoretical learning to the outside world. By relying on the transformative power of literature and replacing nihilism and powerlessness with conviction and faith, the liberal arts can offer practical, useful inspiration to everyone seeking to create a better world.

You are being watched. Your every movement is being tracked, your every word recorded. Your spouse may be an informer, your children may be listening at your door, your best friend may be a member of the secret police. You are alone among thousands, among great crowds of the brainwashed, the well-behaved, the loyal. Productivity has never been higher, the media blares, and the army is ever triumphant. One wrong move, one slip-up, and you may find yourself disappeared -- swallowed up by a monstrous bureaucracy, vanished into a shadowy labyrinth of interrogation chambers, show trials, and secret prisons from which no one ever escapes. Welcome to the world of the dystopia, a world of government and society gone horribly, nightmarishly wrong. What happens when civilization invades and dictates every aspect of your life? From 1984 to The Handmaid's Tale, from Children of Men to Bioshock, the dystopian imagination has been a vital and gripping cautionary force. Brave New Worlds collects the best tales of totalitarian menace by some of today's most visionary writers, including Neil Gaiman, Paolo Bacigalupi, Orson Scott Card, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Ursula K. Le Guin. When the government wields its power against its own people, every citizen becomes an enemy of the state. Will you fight the system, or be ground to dust beneath the boot of tyranny?

A phantom rectum is the least of Aki’s problems; at least it behaves itself in public. No, it’s her stoma that has a mind of it’s own, gurgling and rumbling without any sense of propriety. Standing in the middle of the grocery shop, her trolley half full, her pouch fit to bursting, there’s a slight fug in the air and her fellow shoppers start to take notice. Oh, the humiliation… Aki had not expected to live life with a colostomy bag. But then, does anyone expect a routine colonoscopy to result in a punctured intestine? To hell with it! It’s not the end of the world and millions of people with colostomy bags live normal lives. As for Aki, given she’s Japanese, this falls front and centre into her psyche for hygiene and cleanliness. The only spanner in the works: she has married an Englishman, seemingly raised by wolves, happy to clean his hands on the inside of his pockets and eat food that has fallen on the floor. This could get messy!

Table of Contents Introduction Natural Nursing Infant Formula – The First Poison You Are Feeding Your Baby The Importance of Natural Milk Lactating Mother’s Diet Colostrum Conclusion Prenatal Influence Author Bio Publisher Introduction A healthy, happy family unit is one of the most blessed things in society today. This book is the beginning of the series, which is going to tell you all about how you can keep yourself healthy naturally, and also have a healthy child. I do not care where you are from, your race, denomination, creed, religion, or caste. If you belong to the universal sisterhood of mothers, have had children, and/or have intentions of having children, this book and other books in the series are for you. These books are going to cover the psychological aspect of motherhood, with beliefs, conventions, traditions, and also how children have managed to survive naturally, even though ignorance in the ancient times and too much knowledge in the 21st century making their existence full of jeopardy. You might find some terms here, which in many parts of the world are not spoken in public, because of innate modesty, and upbringing. You may also be told about some activities which are thoroughly natural, but because of conventions or because of brainwashing have been either made taboo or things not to be discussed in general public, thanks to inhibitions. We are not living in Victorian times when maidens were told, even up to the age of 20 and if they were unmarried, that children were found under the Cabbage Patch! This is, of course, the height of absurdity, foolishness, and repression, which was the reason why so many Victorian women could not bear the marriage bed, because their mothers had told them that it was either sinful to enjoy this part of the marital bond or through sheer ignorance, and disgust in an activity which it is supposed to be crude, they did not allow themselves to take part in the physical aspect of a marriage. And that is the reason why their menfolk had mistresses, who were more practical, common, earthy, and enjoyed what the missus called “bed sport” in a prim and prudish fashion. These women thus definitely did not have any emotional attachment to their children, and once the child was born, it was given in the hands of nurses and wet nurses to be brought up far away from the sight of the mother.

The question of how language emerged is one of the most fascinating and difficult problems in science. In recent years, a strong resurgence of interest in the emergence of language from an evolutionary perspective has been helped by the convergence of approaches, methods, and ideas from several disciplines. The selection of contributions in this volume highlight scenarios of language origin and the prerequisites for a faculty of language based on biological, historical, social, cultural, and paleontological forays into the conditions that brought forth and favored language emergence, augmented by insights from sister disciplines. The chapters all reflect new speculation, discoveries and more refined research methods leading to a more focused understanding of the range of possibilities and how we might choose among them. There is much that we do not yet know, but the outlines of the path ahead are ever clearer.

In his riveting memoir, beloved actor Dick Van Patten reflects on his prolific career, vibrant life, and the people who shaped both. From growing up during the Great Depression when poverty and racially biased ideologies dominated America, to witnessing the advent of television and its subsequent influence on culture, Dick Van Patten’s life is a rich record of change and progress in America and Hollywood. He commenced his career by lighting up the Great White Way as a child star alongside Broadway staples such as Tallulah Bankhead, Melvyn Douglas, Alfred Lunt, and Lynn Fontanne, early influences who fueled his relentless thirst for acting and stardom. Although perhaps best known for his role playing the mild mannered “every-dad” in 70s sitcom Eight Is Enough, Dick Van Patten has appeared in thousands of television, film, and radio roles viewed by millions of people. Van Patten divulges anecdotes, both amusing and emotional, that paint a fuller picture of many eminent entertainment idols. He chronicles throwing back drinks with notorious Hollywood producer Robert Evans, forming his family’s close friendship with pop icon Farrah Fawcett, rooming with the legendary Burt Lancaster, and living next door to the eccentric Michael Jackson and clan, just to name a few. Van Patten encountered struggles with family, gambling, and the fickleness of Hollywood. Retaining his signature optimistic outlook, even in the face of tragedy and admitted mistakes, shaped his experiences and allowed him to appreciate the simpler parts of life. Eighty Is Not Enough provides a look back on the evolution of entertainment in a manner rarely glimpsed—straight from the man who has experienced it all.
