Call of the Song Sparrow is a novel both genuine and captivating in its storytelling as its delicate portrayal of the familial ties that bind parents, children and siblings is cast against the backdrop of a scandalous family secret. The story centers around Ida Mabry and her thirty-nine-year-old illegitimate daughter, Tia, whom she abandoned at birth on the doorstep of her paternal grandparents' home in Oakland, California. Ida, who is white had Tia at 17; Tia, who is bi-racial and half black, was born in 1975 at a time when U.S. race relations were still rather tumultuous. The story begins in 2014 with Tia and Ida meeting for the first time in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ida has never divulged anything to her husband and two grown sons about Tia or her past and does not plan to do so even after establishing a relationship with her daughter, but when a series of unlikely events threaten to unsettle Idas long-held secret, she is forced to lay everything on the line.

Over the past century and a half, the voices and bodies of animals have been used by scientists and music experts as a benchmark for measures of natural difference. Animal Musicalities traces music’s taxonomies from Darwin to digital bird guides to show how animal song has become the starting point for enduring evaluations of species, races, and cultures. By examining the influential efforts made by a small group of men and women to define human diversity in relation to animal voices, this book raises profound questions about the creation of modern human identity, and the foundations of modern humanism.

In this thought-provoking book, distinguished legal scholar Joseph Vining traces the complex roots of brutal twentieth-century human experimentation and extermination to worldviews that dehumanize both perpetrators and victims in distinctive ways, stripping them of their individuality as well as their intrinsic dignity and value. Vining finds a disturbing parallel between these worldviews and what he calls total theory. Total theories are beautiful and helpful explanations through attention to system and process that aggressively claim to account for the universe and everything in it. Vining maintains that some of the most gifted intellectuals and scientists of our time profess these theories without necessarily considering the implications of such totalizing worldviews. Using the example of the song sparrow and the child, Vining opens our eyes to the ramifications of total theory. He challenges readers to question casual acceptance of the total theories that are widely and quietly taught in contemporary biology, physics, and mathematics - theories that Vining maintains cannot be and are not actually believed by the people espousing them. This book is an invitation to recall ou
