Deepening Community:Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times Paul Born
Deepening Community Engagement in Higher Education:Forging New Pathways. 2013. Auflage
Community shapes our identity, quenches our thirst for belonging, and bolsters our physical, mental, emotional, and economic health. But in the chaos of modern life, community ties have become unraveled, leaving many feeling afraid or alone in the crowd, grasping at shallow substitutes for true community. In this thoughtful and moving book, Paul Born describes the four pillars of deep community: sharing our stories, taking the time to enjoy one another, taking care of one another, and working together for a better world. To show the role each of these plays, he shares his own stories-as a child of refugees and as a longtime community activist. It´s up to us to create community. Born shows that the opportunity is right in front of us if we have the courage and conviction to pursue it. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Tommie Simms was supposed to be the community hope, the young man from the neighborhood who made good. He attended a state university, married a respectable woman, and landed a position at a white-collar insurance firm. Watching over Chicago from the 33rd floor of his company´s downtown high rise, Tommie ignores the gnawing sense that he doesn´t belong on this path - and that in a blink of an eye, he could stray from its given destination. And then he does.... Soon Tommie is laid off, and he begins to see himself as just another faceless entity on the city´s fringes. After each fruitless job interview, Tommie´s wife withdraws from him further, and in the mirror he faces the reflection of failure his family never intended for him. Stymied by rejection and mounting debt, Tommie is seduced into peddling dope as his best opportunity to define himself and to provide for those he loves. But a corporate job is no preparation for hustling, and when Tommie finds himself on the wrong side of a crooked cop, everyone wants a piece of him: his street-hustling cousins, the police, friends, loan sharks, even a panderer from his white-collar past. In order to break free, Tommie must find a way to dig himself out of a deepening hole, before the city buries him. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kenerly.

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of Russetts scientific contributions, with key examples of his major studies. It will greatly benefit todays International Relations students, deepening their understanding of the fields theory and methods. Bruce M. Russett was a founder of, and continues to be a pioneer in, the empirical analytical study of international relations and foreign policy. He has produced groundbreaking works on methodology, data collection and the application of economics to the field of international relations-especially in the area of analytical relationships between theory, policy and normative standards for morality and ethics. His body of work has clarified and furthered our understanding of peace studies by addressing power and conflict, cooperation, integration and community, democratic/Kantian peace, economic development, dependency and inequality, and the relationships between domestic and foreign politics. Russetts academic achievements and standing are the result of his bringing these areas together as a coherent entity, based on his eclectic ability to cross boundaries with regard to academic disciplines, sub-disciplines, methods of data gathering and analysis, and broad theoretical perspectives, as well as basic and applied research.
