Political Initiation in the Novels of Philip Roth exemplifies how literature and, specifically, the work of Philip Roth can help readers understand the ways in which individuals develop their political identity, learn to comprehend political ideas, and define their role in society. Combining political science, literary theory, and anthropology, the book describes an individual's political coming of age as a political initiation story, which is crafted as much by the individual himself as by the circumstances influencing him, such as political events or the political attitude of the parents. Philip Roth's characters constantly re-write their own stories and experiment with their identities. Accordingly, Philip Roth's works enable the reader to explore, for instance, how individuals construct their identity against the backdrop of political transformations or contested territories, and thereby become initiands-or fail to do so. Contrary to what one might expect, initiations are not only defining moments in childhood and early adulthood; instead, Roth shows how initiation processes recur throughout an individual's life.

A cartoonist follows reporters across the Middle East, learning about journalism and how stories are told Cartoonist Sarah Glidden follows up her acclaimed debut, How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, with Rolling Blackouts, which details her two-month long journey through Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. Glidden accompanies her two friends--reporters and founders of the journalistic non-profit The Seattle Globalist--as they research stories on the Iraq War's effect on the Middle East and, specifically, the war's refugees. Joining them is a former Marine and childhood friend of one of the journalists whose deployment to Iraq in 2007 adds an unexpected and sometimes unwelcome viewpoint, both to the people they come across and perhaps even themselves. The crew works their way through the region with the goal of asking civilians, refugees, and officials: "who are you?" Everyone has a story to tell: the Iranian blogger, the United Nations Refugee administrator, a taxi driver, the Iraqi refugee deported from the US, the Iraqis seeking refuge in Syria, and even the American Marine. The journalists struggle equally with how to tell these stories and with how to market them into articles people will want to read. Glidden records all that she encounters with a sympathetic and searching eye--What is journalism? What is its purpose? What is honesty? Painted in her trademark soft muted watercolors and written with a self-effacing humor, Rolling Blackouts cements Glidden's place as one of comics's most original nonfiction voices.

This is the story of Julia Alekseyeva and her great-grandmother Lola. Born in 1910 to a poor, Jewish family outside of Kiev, Lola lived through the Bolshevik revolution, a horrifying civil war, Stalinist purges, and the Holocaust. She taught herself to read, and supported her extended family working as a secretary for the notorious NKVD (which became the KGB) and later as a lieutenant for the Red Army. Interwoven with Lola's history we find Julia's own struggles of coming of age in an immigrant family in Chicago, and her political awakening in the midst of the radical politics of the turn of the millennium.

As the man and his followers arrived in the city, the air was palpable with intrigue and danger along with a sense of expectation as to what would unfold in the coming days. Thus begins the story of 60 Days That Shook the World: The Last Days of Jesus Christ, by Roy G. Pittman. In the historical and chronological study of Jesus' last week on Earth until the gift of Holy Spirit was given on Pentecost, many traditional beliefs are challenged and questioned. Did Jesus make one triumphal entry into Jerusalem or two? Did Peter deny Jesus three times as traditionally believed or six? Did Judas 'hang' himself the day Jesus was crucified or was he still with the other Apostles after Jesus was resurrected? How many times was Jesus actually buried? All of those questions and many more are studied with answers from the Word of God provided to return serious students of the Bible back to the truth and accuracy of the Word. The author has utilized the research and expertise of many Biblical scholars in his search for the truth; a search he hopes others are willing to seriously undertake. If you are desiring to be challenged and motivated to study the Word of God with a more critical and interpretive understanding, then 60 Days That Shook the World is a must read.

Powerpaola s North American debut traces the lives of young women during Columbia s violent drug cartel warfare era of the 1980 s-90 s. "Powerpaola has a gift for expressing an entire world with a thin black line, building up textures and details that are a joy to get lost in. In "Virus Tropical," her memories of a unique family life are so vividly portrayed that you feel like you are living through all the laughter, joy, tears and door-slamming right along with her. It's a treat of a book."Sarah Glidden, author of "How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less" Powerpaola's "Virus Tropical "uses a series of vignettes to transform the simplicity of middle-class family life into a thought-provoking narrative that would have been inconceivable prior to Colombia's sexual revolution. Focusing on the lives of a family of women in the eighties through the nineties, Powerpaola's tale highlights the excitement, danger, and struggles of a country in the midst of radical change. Powerpaola was born in 1977 in Quito, Ecuador, and, at a young age, moved to Cali, Colombia. Years later, she and her friends founded a collective space of expression, Taller 7, in Medellin and was granted a scholarship to develop her art in La Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris, where she adopted the name Powerpaola. She is currently working on an animated adaptation of "Virus Tropical "and lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. "
