The Gift is a heartwarming story about the true spirit of the holidays. It was created by Marc “The Geiser” Geiserman in the 11th grade for a high school English short story class. Just 16 years old at the time,Marc wrote this Christmas story even though he was the adopted child of two Jewish parents. Says Geiser,“We celebrated all holidays . . . still do today!” Geiser is a storyteller. This one is transcendent and timeless. It is his dream that generation after generation of parents and children will read THE GIFT and discover for themselves the importance of presence, spirit, and the meaning of Christmas as seen through the eyes of a 16 year-old boy and the little mouse family he imagined.His mother, author and motivational speaker Helice “Sparky” Bridges, came across this story hidden in a box of old pictures in the garage and was compelled to share the wonderful tale and its very important message with the world. Geiser and his mother spent nearly a year attempting to rewrite it for publication, only to ultimately decide it was best left intact and unedited, just as it was written in 1984.A portion of the proceeds of The Gift will go to benefit Difference Makers International, a nonprofit educational organization founded by Helice “Sparky” Bridges for the purpose of eradicating bullying through the power of acknowledgment and a little Blue Ribbon that says “Who I Am Makes A Difference.”

What moves us to give gifts to other people? The Gift brings together perspectives on gift exchange and reciprocity from different social scientific disciplines. The first part of this book contains anthropological and sociological 'classics' on gift giving and reciprocity. In the second part the focus is on social psychological theories, and on empirical research on gift giving in Western society. Finally, the main concepts underlying gift exchange - reciprocity, self-interest and altruism - are discussed. Here, the focus is on fundamental assumptions about human nature. Altruism and self-interest turn out to be much more interwoven than we are inclined to think.

In The Gift of Death, Jacques Derrida's most sustained consideration of religion to date, he continues to explore questions introduced in Given Time about the limits of the rational and responsible that one reaches in granting or accepting death, whether by sacrifice, murder, execution, or suicide. Derrida analyzes Patocka's Heretical Essays on the History of Philosophy and develops and compares his ideas to the works of Heidegger, Levinas, and Kierkegaard. A major work, The Gift of Death resonates with much of Derrida's earlier writing and will be of interest to scholars in anthropology, philosophy, and literary criticism, along with scholars of ethics and religion. "The Gift of Death is Derrida's long-awaited deconstruction of the foundations of the project of a philosophical ethics, and it will long be regarded as one of the most significant of his many writings."—Choice "An important contribution to the critical study of ethics that commends itself to philosophers, social scientists, scholars of relgion . . . [and those] made curious by the controversy that so often attends Derrida."—Booklist "Derrida stares death in the face in this dense but rewarding inquiry. . . . Provocative."—Publishers Weekly
