This volume argues for reexamination of the field of community engagement, suggests that the most effective way forward requires rethinking the structures of traditional higher education, and points to the growing emergence of evidence-based best practices that can catalyze a renaissance in community engagement and in higher education.

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. 1. Language: English.

Deepening Democracy in Uganda:Community Participation and Local Urban Governance Rogers Bariyo
The launch of the ASEAN Economic Community raises key issues: the deepening of regional trade and production sharing, and the associated problem of exchange rate management. This volume questions the capacity of a shallow institution to deal with complex consequences on employment and inclusiveness, creativity and connectivity, and inequality and social cohesion. At a time when broader agreements are competing for regional leadership, contributors debate whether ASEAN can serve as a model of integration or else be diluted in wider Asian and Pacific arrangements. Approaches combine economics, history, geography, and political science to provide a clear understanding of ASEANs potential and weaknesses in technical and non-technical but always readable terms. Bruno Jetin is Researcher at the Research Institute on Contemporary Southeast Asia, Thailand, and Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Brunei. He was previously Associate Professor of Economics at Sorbonne Paris Cité University, France, and Fellow Researcher at the University of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Mia Mikic heads trade policy work in the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and coordinates ARTNeT.

Cutting across literature, film, art, and philosophy, Art of the Ordinary is a trailblazing, cross-disciplinary engagement with the ordinary and the everyday. Because, writes Richard Deming, the ordinary is always at hand, it is, in fact, too familiar for us to perceive it and become fully aware of it. The ordinary he argues, is what most needs to be discovered and yet is something that can never be approached, since to do so is to immediately change it.Art of the Ordinary explores how philosophical questions can be revealed in surprising places?as in a stand-up comic?s routine, for instance, or a Brillo box, or a Hollywood movie. From negotiations with the primary materials of culture and community, ways of reading ´´self´´ and ´´other´´ are made available, deepening one?s ability to respond to ethical, social, and political dilemmas. Deming picks out key figures, such as the philosophers Stanley Cavell, Arthur Danto, and Richard Wollheim; poet John Ashbery; artist Andy Warhol; and comedian Steven Wright, to showcase the foundational concepts of language, ethics, and society. Deming interrogates how acts of the imagination by these people, and others, become the means for transforming the alienated ordinary into a presence of the everyday that constantly and continually creates opportunities of investment in its calls on interpretive faculties.In Art of the Ordinary, Deming brings together the arts, philosophy, and psychology in new and compelling ways so as to offer generative, provocative insights into how we think and represent the world to others as well as to ourselves.
We are living up to thirty years longer than people a few generations ago did. In Aging Strong Dr. Harris shows that this ´´extraordinary gift of a longer life” is the opportunity to go deep inside ourselves and meet the spiritual challenge to develop a new story and purpose for ourselves during the fourth quarter of life. It is the opportunity to explore our creativity, discover new vocations and callings, learn to thrive, hold a sense of wonder, and establish a new sense of security in life. It is the gift of deeper emotional connections, wisdom, and newfound joy in living. This book is written for you… If you want to thrive and find spiritual strength, wellbeing, wisdom, and wonder as you grow older. If you are willing to recognize that we live in a new period of history where we can live longer and with more vitality than people ever have. If you are ready to embrace this new reality and live the fourth quarter of your life creatively, lovingly, and joyfully. The most exciting part of this gift is that the more we pursue a larger life by deepening and transforming ourselves as we grow older, the bigger our gift to our families, friends, community, and culture becomes. Let us recognize this challenge as one of the greatest opportunities in human history. Let us shape our lives from the inside out and be fully alive with grace and passion so that we may give this gift to our communities and to our world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Williams.
