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.

CHERISH CHRIST ABOVE ALL: THE BIBLE IN THE RULE OF BENEDICT

CHERISH CHRIST ABOVE ALL: THE BIBLE IN THE RULE OF BENEDICT
$12.95
The Rule of Benedict, one of the most influential documents in Western civilization, has its roots planted deeply in the scriptures. As a result, the forms of monastic life and the spirituality it engendered among lay men and women grew out of a loving reading of the Bible. In this book Benedictine scholar Demetrius Dumm traces those roots and shows how the Judeo-Christian scriptures shine through the monastic way of life, its attitudes and forms of praying. He points out that the hospitality often associated with the Benedictines begins with the entertainment of God's presence by quiet, trusting prayer, and he shows that the practice of Christian discipline is intended more for exposing and eliminating illusions than imposing order. Readers of all backgrounds who honor the wealth of the Christian heritage will welcome this wise and stirring book.

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.

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.

PARLIAMENTARY POLITICS OF A COUNT AND ITS TOWN

product image
$64.95

Based on archival sources, this study considers political activities in Suffolk's two main constituencies over the course of the 18th century. Mining the records of an unusually rich provincial press, Sommers addresses many key questions of Hanoverian political historiography: the press, popular political expressions, women in politics, deference, and elite behavior. She focuses primarily on the second half of the century, a time marked by an increasingly sophisticated electorate that left considerable documentary evidence, to determine how politics actually developed in East Anglia, as recorded in public and private documents.

In addition to a description of the variety and nature of Suffolk politics, the work elaborates upon a number of important collateral themes. These include the appearance of intense political awareness and enthusiastic participation in popular activities among those not possessing the vote, coupled with a political use of the press that grows dramatically in scope over the course of the century. Other sections detail the sustained development of the independence of the electorate and the connection between religious affiliation and partisan identification locally, as well as that between local and national parties.

PSALMS: HEARTBEAT OF LIFE & WORSHIP (P)

product image
$11.00
This book points believers to this ageless prayer book of life. Examining the major themes of the Psalms, the author tries to rescue the impassioned cry of the psalmist from superficial piety and disuse. Brother Benedict Janecko, O.S.B., shows that one finds the heart of religious experience in ordinary living, whether we are "on a high," "in the pits,' or somewhere in between. The reader of this small book will recognize his or her own struggle to trust, to forgive, to repent, to wonder, to endure, to cope, to find meaning, to get along, to express oneself -- and in doing so, will know the truest religious experience: God living and reigning within one's own life.

$14.95
Saint Vincent Seminary is the oldest major seminary in the United States operated by Benedictine monks. Canonically established in 1855 by Pope Pius IX, the Seminary's roots lie much farther back in time. With the new millennium, the Seminary enters its third century: during that time it has given the Church more than forty bishops and abbots, both in America and in Europe. Also among its alumni are musicians and historians, labor priests and biblical scholars. This history traces the growth of the Seminary from its origins in Bavaria to its activities today, while keeping in view the wider field of Christendom.
