A FOREIGN & WICKED INSTITUTION? THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST CONVENTS IN VICTORIAN ENGLAND

product image
$35.00
This work explores the prejudice that existed against women in Victorian England who joined sisterhoods and worked in orphanages and in education and were committed to social work among the urban poor. The accomplishments of the nineteenth-century nuns and the opposition they overcame should serve as both an example and encouragement to all men and women committed to the Gospel.

ABBOT AELRED CARLYLE, CALDEY ISLAND, AND THE ANGLO-CATH. REVIVAL IN ENGLAND

ABBOT AELRED CARLYLE, CALDEY ISLAND, AND THE ANGLO-CATH. REVIVAL IN ENGLAND
$59.95
Drawing from a wealth of private papers, church records, and newspapers, this book documents the religious career of Abbot Aelred Carlyle (1874-1955). From his early popularity and the establishment of an Anglican Benedictine monastery on Caldey Island, South Wales, to his conversion to Roman Catholicism, Carlyle's life presents a forum of debate for numerous topics of Edwardian religion: the Anglo-Catholic movement, ritualism, lawless clergy, the power or lack of authority of the Anglican bishops, the influence of the religious press, the Anglican Church versus the Roman Church, and the issue of religious conversion. This study also questions the role Benedictine monasticism plays, if any, in the reunion of the Anglican and Roman Churches.

CIVIL RIGHTS & THE PARADOX OF LIBERAL DEMOCRACY

product image
$68.00
In Civil Rights and the Paradox of Liberal Democracy, Bradley Watson demonstrates the paradox of liberal democracy: that its cornerstone principles of equality and freedom are principles inherently directed toward undermining it. Modernity, beyond bringing definition to political equality, unleashed a whirlwind of individualism, which feeds the soul's basic impulse to rule without limitation<\#209>including the limitation of consent. Here Watson begins his analysis of the foundations of liberalism, looking carefully and critically at the moral and political philosophies that justify modern civil rights litigation. He goes on to examine the judicial manifestations of the paradox of liberal democracy, seeking to bring a broad philosophical coherence to legal decision making in the United States and Canada. Finally, Watson illuminates the extent to which this decision making is in tension with liberal democracy, and outlines proposals for reform.

CLAIMING LINCOLN

product image
$38.00

Abraham Lincoln is clearly one of the most frequently cited figures in American political rhetoric, especially with regard to issues of equality. But given the ubiquity of Lincoln’s legacy, many references to him, even on the presidential level, are often of questionable accuracy. In Claiming Lincoln, Jividen posits that in much 20th-century presidential rhetoric, especially from progressive leaders, Lincoln’s understanding of equality is slowly divorced from its grounding in the natural rights thinking of the American Founding and reinterpreted in light of progressive history.

Claiming Lincoln examines the manner in which rhetoricians have appealed to Lincoln’s legacy, only to distort that legacy in the process. Focusing on Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson and touching on Barack Obama, Jividen argues that presidential rhetorical use and abuse of Lincoln has profound consequences not only for how we understand Lincoln but also for how we understand American democracy. Jividen’s original take on Lincoln and the Progressives will be of interest to scholars of American politics and all those invested in Lincoln’s legacy.

FLOWERS IN THE DESERT - SPIRITUALITY OF THE BIBLE

product image
$12.95
Biblical Wisdom for Everyday Life.

The bible is, above all other things, a record of God's love for the human race. In its words and through its stories God reveals himself and calls those who hear the word into communion with him. When we first approach the bible, however, we encounter a variety of literary styles -- histories, poetry, sagas, moral advice and visionary productions. There is often a problem of discerning the simple theme of call-and-response in all these styles, or of finding a connection in the bible to our 20th century existence. This book opens the door to the deep message the bible conveys to individual Christians today. Putting aside for a moment questions of doctrine or historical interpretation, it concentrates on the spiritual teaching of the Old and New Testaments. It begins with God's call to humanity and to each of us individually. Then it considers the human adventure of our journey through life. Finally it looks at our ultimate homecoming to the Father. The many references to biblical passages and daily life make this an invaluable book for those who want to know about the bible -- but even more, who want to live it.

FUNDAMENTALS OF STRENGTH

product image
$100.00

Offers data, examples, and applications supporting the use of the mechanical threshold stress (MTS) model

Written by Paul S. Follansbee, an international authority in the field, this book explores the underlying theory, mechanistic basis, and implementation of the mechanical threshold stress (MTS) model. Readers are introduced to such key topics as mechanical testing, crystal structure, thermodynamics, dislocation motion, dislocation–obstacle interactions, hardening through dislocation accumulation, and deformation kinetics. The models described in this book support the emerging theme of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) by offering a foundation for the bridge between length scales characterizing the mesoscale (mechanistic) and the macroscopic.

Fundamentals of Strength begins with a chapter that introduces various approaches to measuring the strength of metals. Next, it covers:

  • Structure and bonding
  • Contributions to strength
  • Dislocation–obstacle interactions
  • Constitutive law for metal deformation
  • Further MTS model developments
  • Data analysis: deriving MTS model parameters

The next group of chapters examines the application of the MTS model to copper and nickel, BCC metals and alloys, HCP metals and alloys, austenitic stainless steels, and heavily deformed metals. The final chapter offers suggestions for the continued development and application of the MTS model.

To help readers fully understand the application of the MTS model, the author presents two fictional materials along with extensive data sets. In addition, end-of-chapter exercises give readers the opportunity to apply the models themselves using a variety of data sets.

Appropriate for both students and materials researchers, Fundamentals of Strength goes beyond theory, offering readers a model that is fully supported with examples and applications.

LISTEN TO OUR WORDS

product image
$20.00
Babe Pratt, Red Dutton, Fritz Hanson and Tommy Gorman are only a few of the legendary figures featured in sportswriter Jim Coleman's long-awaited memoir. Long Ride on a Hobby-horse is a nostalgic and hilarious look back at some of the most memorable players, coaches, characters and highlights in Canadian sports and journalism, written by a leading newspaperman whose career spans six decades. Jim Coleman has, he says, known some genuine oddballs. There was the veteran newspaper editor whose parrot would spring into action at the sound of military music and circle menacingly around unsuspecting guests; the reclusive reporter who regularly commuted to his office by canoe or snowshoes; The Good Kid, a diminutive and roly-poly carnie who was a big spender and hustler around the racetrack; Break-the-Bed Louis and Whitey the Pest, two of many larcenous characters in Toronto's underworld. There are nostalgic accounts of sports highlights - the first time a team from Western Canada won the Grey Cup; the Calgary Stampeders' national football triumph in 1948; the time goalie Red McCusker held an opposing team scoreless while he was drunk; defenceman Jean Pusie's on-the-ice buffoonery, and many other memorable events and players.
