Resisting Global Toxics: Transnational Movements for Environmental Justice (Urban and Industrial Environments)
David Naguib Pellow

Thinking Through Race Transnationally in Toxics Trade
Pellow's book is an original attempt to highlight race in the context of the global trade in toxic and hazardous waste material. He traces the connections between social justice movements around the world and the ways in which they put pressure on notorious toxic corporations. He rightfully points out that despite the fact that the urban social justice movement in the US has successfully ...
Worldliness: Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World
C. J. Mahaney
Living as People Not Of the World but In It...for God's Glory
How do Christians live in the world, but not of the world? C. J. Mahaney and fellow writers in Worldliness: Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World offer what they believe to be a Biblical approach to "enjoying the world, engaging the world, [and] evangelizing the world" (168) while obeying the clear Scriptural command in 1 John 2:15 to not love the world.

An Israeli in Palestine: Resisting Dispossession, Redeeming Israel
THE book to read if you want to understand this issue!
Jeff Halper, a Jewish Israeli peace activist, lays out in devastating detail the horrors of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. This book is so well documented, it seems impossible to refute. It's really difficult to read. Not that it's difficult to UNDERSTAND... not at all. But what Israel has done -- and continues to do -- to the Palestinians is so atrocious, it actually hurts me to read it. ...

Resisting the Devil: A Catholic Perspective on Deliverance
Our Sunday Visitor
Excellent, thoughtful, much needed work
Lozano's book provides some excellent clarification on the topics of deliverance and exorcism, how they relate to each other and to the sacraments. The focus is on our inheritance of freedom as children of God, won for us by Jesus on the Cross; and how we can take hold of it in our lives. For those who know that "our battle is not against flesh and blood," this book is an invaluable aid. It ...
Resisting Reading Mandates: How to Triumph with the Truth
Elaine M. Garan
Strong arguments against heavy phonics
Prof. Garan stunned the academic world recently with her brilliant critique of the National Reading Panel's report, which appeared in several prestigious journals, including the Phi Delta Kappan. The National Reading Panel summary claimed that intensive phonics was the true path for all readers from kindergarten to grade 6.

Freedom Next Time: Resisting the Empire
Integrity Demands a Five, One of Three in My Review Trilogy
This is the third of three books by John Pilger (he has written others, I had to be selective) that I ordered and have read this long-week-end. The others: 2002 The New Rulers of the World 2005 Tell Me No Lies: Investigative Journalism That Changed the World (29 authors, edited) Amazon now buries my reviews and has deleted over 350 of my images to delete the twelve that show Bush-Obama ...
Resisting Linguistic Imperialism in English Teaching (Oxford Applied Linguistics)
A. Suresh Canagarajah
Oxford University Press, USA
I am not entirely happy with the title of this book which might be read as meaning that the author depends on a simply opressor-opressed dichotomy. Far from that, C. provides a fascinating glimpse at how ELT works in the "periphery" that is in third world countries. He also elaborates the working conditions of scholars in theses countires, thereby providing much needed insights to first world ...

Resisting Reagan: The U.S. Central America Peace Movement
University Of Chicago Press
A comprehensive analysis of the U.S. Central America peace movement, Resisting Reagan explains why more than one hundred thousand U.S. citizens marched in the streets, illegally housed refugees, traveled to Central American war zones, committed civil disobedience, and hounded their political representatives to contest the Reagan administration's policy of sponsoring wars in Nicaragua and El Salvador. Focusing on the movement's three most ...
Not for Sale: Feminists Resisting Prostitution and Pornography
Provocative and important
This book will give you a lot to think about - it is not only meaty and long - well over 400 densely printed pages, but it contains many pieces that are down-to-earth and provocative. There is information about prostitution and its effects on those being exploited and abused in it, and information on the effects of pornography, including the women portrayed in it and the men using it, from ...
Can It Really Be Taught?: Resisting Lore in Creative Writing Pedagogy
We Need More Books Like This
Creative writing in America is only now discovering itself as a discipline that not only produces literary texts but also knowledge about how texts are written and received and how creative writing is and can be taught. This book is a move in the right direction toward exploring the scholarship of creative writing in the university. I feel the book could have expanded beyond the usual suspects ...
The Miner's Canary: Enlisting Race, Resisting Power, Transforming Democracy (Nathan I.Huggins Lectures)
Harvard University Press
THIS BOOK RECALLS ELLISON'S INVISIBLE MAN
Because it's the best book about race relations in America since Ellison's masterpiece of fifty years ago. By "race relations" I mean blacks and whites, as Ellison would have meant the words. But The Miner's Canary is about much more, it's about all-minority-cultures and whites in America. And in direct opposition to the color-blind solution the Supreme Court has decided the Constitution ...
Urban Girls: Resisting Stereotypes, Creating Identities

The researchers included in this ambitious project realize there is more to adolescence than the suburban experience. The city has unique effects on the people who live there, and they on it. ...

That's Revolting!: Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation
Soft Skull Press
This is what has been missing.
This is the book I had always dreamed they would use in my queer classes at school!!! Activism, cultural analysis and personal narratives help push what has been understood as "gay and lesbian studies" from the now "safe" grounds of identity to the terrain of revolution. From racism in queer organizing to hilarious direct action That's Revolting is a radical a re-thinking of all that we through ...

Turn off the tube, come read this!
If you get very tired of what passes for debate in this country, try this book on for size. White calls it like it is -- Democrats and Republicans claim to be so different, but they are basically both about keeping society this way it is, "good for business"; capitalism is bankrupt spiritually, leading to an unsustainable work/life balance for families, and a lousy car-centric suburbia landscape ...
