The idea of equality is central to American civic life and one of the foundations of our national identity. Charges of unequal treatment continue to be voiced nationwide, in both the public discourse and the courts, yet there is no consensus on the meaning of equality. Competing views on this topic have erupted into a cultural conflict that looms large in contemporary American politics. In this collection of insightful essays, distinguished scholars in law, history, and social science present varying perspectives on this fundamental concept. Addressing the specific cases behind the headlines and the abstract arguments within the legal texts, the contributors look closely at everything from school bussing programs and affirmative action to the role of the courts and the politics of equality. Various examples and definitions of equality, culled from America's past and present, are summarized and examined in ways that illustrate how and why equality issues directly affect men and women of all races and backgrounds. Redefining Equality, a balanced array of assessments regarding our nation's historical and contemporary thoughts on equality and civil rights, will prove most informative to students of law, political science, and recent American history.

Twelve year old Drew Holiday knows only what she’s been told—that when she was seven, an explosion destroyed her house, killed her parents and injured her so that she cannot recall her life before that fateful night. Adopted into another family, she enjoys life as a classical guitar prodigy, of which great accomplishments are expected. But the appearance of a blind street singer named Doboro, introduces her to the blues and the infectious sound of bottleneck guitar. Inexplicably drawn to the sound and the cigar box guitar he plays, it isn’t long before she, against all good sense, asks the enigmatic drifter to teach her his method. After a rough and tense introduction, he agrees and thus begins her daily lessons. But as they begin to build together her own cigar box guitar, and their familiarity grows, so does the mystery and danger that surrounds Doboro, drawing out of the shadows assassins bent on his destruction. And hers.

Canadian Authors Association Literary Award winner for Best Drama This comedy by the author of Toronto at Dreamer's Rock and Education Is Our Right is about love, family, and what to do with too much beer. Set on a reserve, it follows the plight of Martha, a church-going, teetotaling woman who finds herself stuck with 143 cases of beer after a church fundraiser fails. She decides to bootleg the beer, to the horror of her son Andrew, nicknamed Blue, who is a special constable on the reserve.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical? But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't. But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny. . . "Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal." --Booklist "The mix of supernatural mystery, romance and reluctant succubus is great fun." --Locus "An engaging read." --Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling author

Meanwhile, the town of Littleboro, North Carolina is abuzz with gossip about Crazy Reba's upcoming nuptials.

But at almost 60—or thereabouts—her marriage seems a little peculiar. Sure, she's sporting a diamond big enough to choke a horse, but no one can tell if it's real, or just a Cracker Jack prize she pilfered from a yard sale. Crazy Reba's wedding plans go confirmedly awry when the bride-to-be is arrested for her fiancé's murder. Beth, determined to clear Reba's name, gets in over her head when a lady wrestler who threatened to kill her books a room at the Dixie Dew, and Robert Redford, her neighbor's white rabbit, disappears. Then Litteboro's First Annual Green Bean Festival gets up and running, a famous food writer becomes deathly ill, and Beth must battle through madcap mayhem to apprehend the culprit and save the day. Wedding Bell Blues is Ruth Moose's sequel to her winning debut, featuring her colorful array of characters and more laughs and hilarity.

Persönlich betroffen beim Fund einer Wasserleiche, gewinnt Polizeihauptkommissar Werner Drews den Eindruck, dass die herbeigezogenen Kollegen von der Kripo allzu schnell bereit seien, den Fall zu den Akten zu legen. Zusammen mit einigen Freunden, insbesondere mit Willi, einem ehemaligen Fremdenlegionär, versucht Drews die für ihn selbst so wichtigen Hintergründe des Falles zu klären. Die Bekanntschaft mit einer Wissenschaftlerin, die an einem geheimen Projekt arbeitet, macht ihm klar, dass die heimische Wirtschaft und Industrie immer wieder den Attacken von Wirtschaftsspionage und Datenklau ausgesetzt ist. Die Entführung eines Rechtsanwalts schließlich bringt die Freunde auf die richtige Spur. Mit einem Augenzwinkern und getragen von den Songtiteln bekannter Bluesstücke beschreibt der Autor den Ablauf der Ermittlungen vor dem Hintergrund der oberbayrischen Kleinstadt Burghausen. Die Stadt lebt und erhält ihren Charme durch den allgegenwärtigen Kontrast zwischen mittelalterlichen Wurzeln, bedeutsamen, innovationsfreudigen Industrieniederlassungen und einem hervorragenden Freizeitangebot. So läuft während der Bemühungen der Freunde um Aufklärung des Falles gerade die seit über vierzig Jahren alljährlich veranstaltete Internationale Jazzwoche ab, und offenbar beleben nicht nur viele Musikliebhaber und sonstige Touristen das Straßenbild, was die Ermittlungen nicht gerade einfacher gestaltet.

The essays in this volume address William Faulkner and the issue of race. Faulkner resolutely has probed the deeply repressed psychological dimensions of race, asking in novel after novel the perplexing question: what does blackness signify in a predominantly white society? However, Faulkner's public statements on the subject of race have sometimes seemed less than fully enlightened, and some of his black characters, especially in the early fiction, seem to conform to white stereotypical notions of what black men and women are like. These essays, originally presented by Faulkner scholars, black and white, male and female, at the 1986 Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference, the thirteenth in a series of conferences held on the Oxford campus of the University of Mississippi, explore the relationship between Faulkner and race. With essays by Eric J. Sundquist Craig Werner Blyden Jackson Thadious Davis Pamela J. Rhodes Walter Taylor Noel Polk James A. Snead Philip M. Weinstein Lothar Houmlnnighausen Frederick R. Karl Hoke Perkins Sergei Chakovsky Michael Grimwood Karl F. Zender
