"A collection that reflects America's new reality." --The New York Times Book Review, New & Noteworthy The National Book Award finalist forRefund returns with a new collection of stories that boldly examines the changes in American culture over the last two years through the increasing presence of violence, bigotry, sexual harassment, and the emotional costs of living under constant threat. In the title story, the competition between two middle school cellists is affected by a shooting at their school, and it is only years later that they realize how the intrusion of violence affected the course of their lives. In "This Is Who You Are," a young girl walks the line between Hebrew school and her regular school, realizing that both are filled with unexpected moments of insight and violence. In "Three Interviews," an aging reporter must contend with her dwindling sense of self and resources, beleaguered by unemployment, which sets her on a path to three increasingly unhinged job interviews. In "Mrs. America," a candidate for local office must confront a host of forces that threaten to undermine her campaign and expose her own role in the dissonance between what America is and what it should be. The New Order shows a singular writer dealing with contemporary themes and ideas, shining a spotlight on the dark corners of our nature, our instincts, and our country. "The unfussy yet supremely crafted short fictions in the author's second collection delight in upending expectations, playing fast and loose with the rules of tone, time, and point of view to constantly keep us guessing." --O, The Oprah Magazine

This volume is the first study to address the role of the military in post-Soeharto Indonesia. The author is a former ghostwriter at the Indonesian Ministries of Home Affairs and Defence. He is privy to the internal dynamics of the military and has personally interviewed such untouchable figures as former President Soeharto. As such, this is an up-to-date, well-informed study providing a useful contribution to the literature, particularly with regard to the younger generation of the military."--BOOK JACKET.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
To anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear, it is obvious that life as we know it is reaching critical mass-environmentally, socially, politically, and spiritually. For thousands of years there have been prophecies of a planetary "shift" of great magnitude, moving us into a higher and brighter new world. This is the autobiography of one of the world's most significant spiritual leaders, with visions of the future of our planet's destiny-of the evolution of benevolent celestial and human leadership into a truly Divine Administration. The Divine New Order And The Dawn Of The First Stage Of Light And Life is the story of Gabriel of Urantia and the EcoVillage and spiritual community he co-founded in 1989 with Niann Emerson Chase and the beginnings of the worldwide Spiritualution SM movement they created together over the last 24 years. Originally written in 1989, this 2013 Third Edition chronicles the flowering and fruition of Global Community Communications Alliance (also known as Divine Administration), including the relocation and growth of the First Planetary Sacred Home-a theological world center, cultural crossroads, and planetary spiritual headquarters. Many of the prophecies that were written in the Bible and other sacred texts have come to pass or are happening now. Some of this book is prophecy-with scenarios that have already come true and some with outcomes yet to be revealed. That outcome is partially in your hands. Discover the Creator's plan to establish a Divine New Order for our world and how you can help to bring about the dawn of the first stage of light and life-to overcome the existing death and darkness of our world in peril by bringing genuine hope, real love, and true justice to every corner of the planet. Spiritual leader Gabriel of Urantia is an Audio Fusion Material Complement (for further explanation see The Cosmic Family volumes), father of four children, activist, teacher, musician, and author. He lives in Tumacacori, Arizona at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage. Together, spiritual leaders and teachers Gabriel of Urantia and Niann Emerson Chase-who co-share the Mandate of the Bright and Morning Star (see The Cosmic Family, Volume I)-have established more than two dozen outreach and educational ministries, touching all facets of life, health, and reality. This book chronicles the unfolding of that incredible story and the life of this very unique soul, Gabriel of Urantia. The Divine New Order And The Dawn Of The First Stage Of Light And Life has the most extensive Glossary of the highest spiritual terms and concepts on the planet today and is the only one of such quality. The new Third Edition of The Divine New Order And The Dawn Of The First Stage Of Light And Life also includes a wonderful color photo gallery depicting more than 40 historical and contemporary aspects of the life of Gabriel of Urantia and Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage-comprised of 100+ international men, women, and children.
Backed by careful documentation from cinema literature, this is a radical, in-depth perspective on film - its implications, its vulnerability to manipulation and its artistic and propagandist value.

Indonesia's quasi-military dictatorship has sought since 1965 to mould Indonesian society into a male-oriented, capitalist, Javanese-dominated national framework. Cinema and television are the most closely-controlled mass media in Indonesia, and films for mass consumption have played an important role in the government's vast socio-political engineering project.Krishna Sen describes the background and present-day Indonesian film industry and explores how the country's society and history are represented in its film culture. From a critique of four films, she concludes that Indonesian cinema privileges the military against the civilian, the middle class against the popular classes, and men against women. Backed by careful documentation from cinema literature, this is a radical, in-depth perspective on film - its implications, its vulnerability to manipulation and its artistic and propagandist value.

The Press in New Order Indonesia is the most comprehensive book available in English on the print media during the Suharto presidency. Based on detailed and investigative research, it provides a succinct introduction to the political and economic forces shaping this dominant sector of the Indonesian media at a pivotal time in its development. The study documents the history of the press prior to the rise of President Suharto, surveys the changing New Order policies to the media, and analyses the various modes of control exercised through powerful government agencies and industry bodies. Throughout this critical historical period of political tension and economic transition, The Press in New Order Indonesia traces the development of huge media conglomerates which began to rival military muscle in shaping the media landscape of Indonesia. This study explains how the student press spilled off the campuses to play a unique political role. By contrast, a distinctly Islamic press achieved only very modest success. Focusing on Indonesian-language national daily newspapers, it also discusses news weeklies, periodicals and magazines, as well as publications in regional languages, English and Chinese. Brought back to life in Equinox Publishing's Classic Indonesia series, The Press in New Order Indonesia is required reading for students of Indonesian languages and cultures, Asian studies, Southeast Asian studies, media studies, journalism, and contemporary politics. David T. Hill is Professor of Southeast Asian Studies and Fellow of the Asia Research Centre, Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia.
From the more obvious thinkers to those less frequently studied, this volume features such figures as Calvin, Althusius, Hooker, Bracciolini, Savonarola, Copernicus, Tycho de Brahe, and Giordano Bruno.
Author: Eric Voegelin
Annotation. Examining the emergence of modernity within the philosophical and political debates of the sixteenth century, Religion and the Rise of Modernity resumes the analysis of the "great confusion" introduced in Volume IV of History of Political Ideas. Encompassing a vast range of events ignited by Luther's Ninety-Five Theses, this period is one of controversy, revolution, and partiality. Despite the era's fragmentation and complexity, Voegelin's insightful analysis clarifies its significance and suggests the lines of change converging at a point in the future: the medieval Christian understanding of a divinely created closed cosmos was being replaced by a distinctly modern form of human consciousness that posits man as the proper origin of meaning in the universe. Analyzing the most significant features of the great confusion, Voegelin examines a vast range of thought and issues of the age. From the more obvious thinkers to those less frequently studied, this volume features such figures as Calvin, Althusius, Hooker, Bracciolini, Savonarola, Copernicus, Tycho de Brahe, and Giordano Bruno. Devoting a considerable amount of attention to Jean Bodin, Voegelin presents him as a prophet of a new, true religion amid the civilizational disorder of the post-Christian era. Focusing on such traditional themes as monarchy, just war theory, and the philosophy of law, this volume also investigates issues within astrology, cosmology, and mathematics. Religion and the Rise of Modernity is a valuable work of scholarship not only because of its treatment of individual thinkers and doctrines influential in the sixteenth century and beyond but also because of its close examination of those experiences that formed the modern outlook.

In countries outside the developed world, although writers have written commentaries on specific legal codes, very little attention has been given to legal writing which has focused specifically on the ethics of the legal profession. This book makes a special contribution in that regard providing, as it does, a comparative study of prevailing efforts to enhance ethical standards in a profession potentially in crisis and under much public scrutiny. Countries which have been examined include the UK, the US, Canada, South Africa, and countries in the Pacific, South East Asia and the Caribbean. Valuable guidance and learning are provided on such topical issues as wasted costs orders, conflicts of interests, legal and judicial codes, confidentiality, privilege and the ethics of the criminal process, where the jury system comes in for critical evaluation. This book will be a valuable text on the ethics and status of the profession. It will be of considerable interest to law students, practitioners and legal academics, Bar Associations, Attorneys-General and Directors of Public Prosecutions as well as members of the judiciary.

During the Second World War, the collaboration dilemma regarding Europe's business life came to the forefront as business leaders were faced with the necessity of cooperating with the German enemy in order to maintain production and survive as economic units. Working for the New Order examines Europeâ??s corporate survival in a highly unstable business environment during this period of time. Cooperation with the dominant European power aimed to secure the future for business, national economies, and the nation states of Europe. With this point of reference, Europe's business life, of working for the New Order, contributed substantially to the Nazi German war effort.
