Sociology: Relationships That Make a World
2nd. ed. Dubuque, IA: Kendall/Hunt Publishing Co., © 2002

Student Guide to Accompany Sociology: Relationships That Make a World
2nd. ed. Dubuque, IA: Kendall/Hunt Publishing Co., © 2002

One of the primary objectives of this book is to model valuable sociological perspectives for understanding the social relationships, history, and cultures that constitute everyday social life. It is our hope that with exposure to ways of knowing that are embedded within a liberal arts tradition, that students will be able to arrive at new levels of understanding and cooperation. It is our belief that education can provide a key to understanding the relationships that make a world and that such an understanding will promote greater tolerance and acceptance of cultural diversity and more responsible functioning in the social, political, and economic environments.

Reading Feminist Intertextuality Through Bluebeard Stories
Lewiston, N.Y.: Edwin Mellen Press, © 2001

This study offers a new theory for feminist intertextuality based on strategies at work in rewritings of the Bluebeard fairy tale. The book asserts that feminist intertextuality revises one coercive intertext in particular: that of intertextuality theory itself. Rewritings of the fairy tale accordingly can be seen to privilege either the embedded narrative or the escape from it, subscribing either to monologic or dialogic intertextuality. The work examines the original Bluebeard tale group (Perrault, Grimm, variants); historical and modern Bluebeards; and then other writers, including Jane Austen, William Godwin, Margaret Atwood, John Fowles, Peter Ackroyd, Kurt Vonnegut, Angela Carter, Gloria Naylor, Emma Cave, Max Frisch, Stephen King, Méira Cook, and Donald Barthelme.

Fireweaver: The Story of a Life, a Near-Death, and Beyond
Philadelphia, PA: Xlibris, © 2001

Fireweaver is the true story of May Eulitt and the amazing near-death experience she shared with two of her closest friends. Working in the fields on her family farm, she and her companions are struck by lightning and nearly killed. While unconscious, they travel together to an otherworldly place where they are greeted by spirit guides who explain to them the meaning of their experience and the significance it has for their lives back in the real world. Rather than focusing on the details of the near-death experience itself as many other books on this subject have done, this book focuses more on the context into which the near-death experience can be placed.

Understanding Early Adolescent Self and Identity: Applications and Interventions
New York: SUNY Press, © 2002

Understanding Early Adolescent Self and Identity - What are the major self and identity concerns for early adolescents?

Providing a broad and interdisciplinary approach to studying the self, the contributors emphasize the practical implications of their work for understanding early adolescent self and identity and for designing interventions that facilitate development and adjustment. The book consists of four major sections, in which contributors address conceptual issues, school transitions, peer and behavioral problems, and intervention programs.

Charles Hartshorne's Letters to a Young Philosopher: 1979-1995
[A Special Issue of:] Logos-Sophia: The Journal of the Pittsburg State University Philosophical Society, v11 Fall 2001
Pittsburg, KS: PSU Philosophical Society, © 2002

Charles Hartshorne (1897-2000) was the foremost representative of process philosophy in the later half of the twentieth century. In hundreds of publications spanning the better part of seven decades, Hartshorne made major contributions to philosophy and theology and, to a lesser but not insignificant degree, to psychology and ornithology.

Special Focus on Charles Hartshorne
[A Special Issue of:] Progress Studies, v30, no. 2, Fall-Winter, 2001
Claremont, CA: Center for Process Studies, © 2002

We offer this "all-Hartshorne" issue as a Special Tribute Issue for Charles Hartshorne (1897-2000). Previously, we dedicated 'Process Studies' 29.3 (2000) to Hartshorne, but we wish, in this issue, to complete our tribute by the publication of four previously unpublished Hartshorne articles (edited and introduced by Don Viney), a transcription of his Notes from a Whitehead class at Harvard in 1925-26 (transcribed and introduced by Roland Faber), and the revised and updated Hartshorne Primary Bibliography (edited by Don Viney and Randy Ramal). Our debt to Charles Hartshorne is inestimable. We rejoice in his life and work.
