Catholic institutions of higher learning are at a crossroads: How can they remain true to their roots while recognizing that many of their administrations, faculties, and student bodies have little connection with the tradition? How can these institutions remain competitive while maintaining a relationship to the Church? During the past several years Catholic theologian John C. Haughey, SJ, has conducted groundbreaking research on these questions. He has done this in tandem with a team of Catholic scholars from around the United States. Haughey has also conducted numerous workshops with faculty at a dozen Catholic colleges and universities to learn firsthand about their research and teaching aspirations. Those relationships and conversations provide the foundation for this book’s many insights. In Where Is Knowing Going? Haughey explores what constitutes the Catholic identity of Catholic colleges and universities. Going beyond a doctrinal understanding of Catholic identity to one that engages and is engaged by the intellectual tradition of Catholicism, Haughey does not find that the issue of Catholic identity is adequately dealt with by marketing the distinctive identities of institutions in terms of their founding religious orders or saints. He provides a sure-handed process whereby the pursuits of individual faculty can be better aligned with the formal mission of the institution.

This is Leonie van Daalen-Roell's own story of her Aristocratic Dutch family of privilege, glamour and power. She arrived in Central Java not knowing that she was living on one of the last sugar plantations owned by her mother's family in Tjepiring, the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) or that this would be the last ten years of the 300 year reign of the Dutch colony. This is not your normal memoire. It is written through the eyes of a young, bright, creative child whose life in a tropical paradise of Java suddenly breaks into pieces as the horror of war and uncertainty of life become her reality. The story intensifies when Pearl Harbor is attacked on December 7, 1941. The U.S.A. goes to war with Japan and commensurate with them the Dutch government also declares war on Japan. Everything Leonie holds dear; her home, family, loving servants, treasured animals and all personal comforts, cease to exist. Immediately, her father is called to serve in the war and must leave. The family quickly flees from chaos and mass looting. The plantation house is ransacked and all personal possessions damaged. They are evacuated in the mountains with only fl. 150- and a few family jewels hidden and secured in her mother's belt for future survival. It is a 355 page fast paced, well- written book in English. We follow her unbelievable life journey where her family is separated in different camps, men and boys from woman and children. Humiliation, starvation, and severe punishment were the norm. Rules were rigid; the work was difficult. With few tools they were frequently forced to use their hands. They served as slaves. Survival was challenging due to the cruelty exhibited by the guards. Disease and illnesses weakened the physical body as did an increasing lack of food. Their strong faith in God inspired and fed them spiritually. One is captivated by the ingenuity Leonie exhibited, enduring life in Japanese occupation and internment in East Indies camps. At age 11 she matured overnight. As she observed her mother's declining health and delicate psychology; she took grave risks caring for her mother and as well her sister, Anny and brother, Willem in three concentration camps. All too soon another separation of a family was witnessed as the Japanese guards gathered Willem and all boys over the age of 10 in trucks to be relocated to male camps. Leonie's scholarship and facts of the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) wartime history and War of Independence keeps the story flowing while striking a balance between detail and creative expression. She maintains an historian's measured analysis throughout. The book holds one's interest and attention; she enables the reader to be carried into this unfortunate reality and creates comparable landscape to what is happening today in the Middle East. Her story depicting human tragedy, loss and unbelievable conditions is juxtaposed by a silent, resilient and powerful strength. This book contains family photos, original letters to family members at various camps that highlighted the psychological impact and state of mind... as well exhibits a remarkable faith in God to endure. The only book the Japanese allowed prisoners of war to have in their possession was a Bible. Leonie has her father's Bible complete with notes made while enduring slave labor on the 415 km Burma railway. Leonie returned to Holland in 1946 after nearly four years in various camps. Her reentry into life in The Netherlands was full of adjustment. She would return to Tjepiring in 1949 as her father was called back to rebuild the sugar plantation and the economic structure of this region in the midst of danger during the War of Independence. I recommend this book be included in schools, municipal libraries and universities. This is Leonie van Daalen-Roell's first book. She is a Dutch born writer residing in Switzerland.

Knowledge and expertise are highly valued in today's business world. These values are introduced at an early age by our education system, and at work, we are assessed based on what we know, on having the answers and solutions. Our need for certainty, to know what's going on, to have all the answers, exerts strong pressure in our lives. This award-winning book offers an alternative, contrarian approach to dealing with such pressures--and to embrace "not knowing" rather than fearing it. The authors argue it is by "not knowing" that we in fact develop an exploratory mindset, and we discover, engage and create new ways to deal with business and management problems and issues. The book is supported by stories of individuals and the positive change they made in their lives through "not knowing." Solving new problems with old ways of thinking are no longer useful in the new world.

In 1991, when her daughter’s rare, hand-carved harp was stolen, Lisby Mayer’s familiar world of science and rational thinking turned upside down. After the police failed to turn up any leads, a friend suggested she call a dowser—a man who specialized in finding lost objects. With nothing to lose—and almost as a joke—Dr. Mayer agreed. Within two days, and without leaving his Arkansas home, the dowser located the exact California street coordinates where the harp was found. Deeply shaken, yet driven to understand what had happened, Mayer began the fourteen-year journey of discovery that she recounts in this mind-opening, brilliantly readable book. Her first surprise: the dozens of colleagues who’d been keeping similar experiences secret for years, fearful of being labeled credulous or crazy. Extraordinary Knowing is an attempt to break through the silence imposed by fear and to explore what science has to say about these and countless other “inexplicable” phenomena. From Sigmund Freud’s writings on telepathy to secret CIA experiments on remote viewing, from leading-edge neuroscience to the strange world of quantum physics, Dr. Mayer reveals a wealth of credible and fascinating research into the realm where the mind seems to trump the laws of nature. She does not ask us to believe. Rather she brings us a book of profound intrigue and optimism, with far-reaching implications not just for scientific inquiry but also for the ways we go about living in the world. From the Hardcover edition.

An irresistible tale about what happens when a girl on the fringe enters the realm of New York's chic, party-hopping elite. On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At twenty-six, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her eighty-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls -- but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she not only shocks her friends and family -- she has no idea what to do next. For months, Bette gets out and about by walking her four-pound dog around her decidedly unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood. Then she meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly Bette has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen. The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP rooms of the city's most exclusive nightclubs, to parties crowded with celebrities and socialites. Bette learns not to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, the magnums of Cristal, or the ruthless paparazzi. Soon she's dating an infamous playboy who's great for her career but bad for her sanity -- and scaring off the one decent guy she meets. Still, as her coworkers repeatedly point out, how can you complain about a job that pays you to party? Bette has to agree -- until she begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column. That's when Bette's life on paper takes on a whole new meaning -- and she learns the line between her personal and professional lives is...invisible.

The Journey of Not Knowing: How 21st Century Leaders Can Chart a Course Where There Is None By Julie Benezet The Journey of Not Knowing is a fast paced, entertaining read that gets to the heart of a critical state in today’s business climate and society overall: the constantly changing, ambiguous 21st Century and the uncharted waters ahead. This book will inspire leaders of any size organization to come to grips with the scariness of the unknown while it advances a new approach to leadership that leverages the discomfort of the new as a powerful source of inspiration rather than a deterrent to building a better future. Written by former Amazon executive, coach and lawyer Julie Benezet, the book combines storytelling, business experience and human psychology to create a roadmap through the ambiguity of building something better in the context of the realities of humans in organizational life. The book tells a story of a day in the life at Arrow, Inc., a fictional company. It follows the defended behaviors throughout that day of its eight very recognizable leadership team members as they work first to avoid and then finally to solve the mystery of why a client fired them. The reward of the discovery is a critical piece of new business and substantial personal growth. To get there, each of team members must face their past, present and future. The memorable characters in the book are persons with whom the readers may cringingly identify. The book creates a framework them to confront their own resistance to change, and tools to start them on their way toward pursuing new possibilities for their lives once they can confront and embrace the scariness of the unknown. The author opens the book with a description of an experience at Amazon that led to her belief about leadership and the unknown. It ends with a primer on the Journey of Not Knowing? leadership model, using the Arrow story to illustrate its principles. The Journey of Not Knowing forms the core of a leadership program that been attended by executives from around the world over the past five years. (www.journeyofnotknowing.com)
