The Sámi are a Northern indigenous people whose land, Sápmi, covers territory in Finland, Norway, Russia, and Sweden. For the Nordic Sámi, the last decades of the twentieth century saw their indigenous rights partially recognized, a cultural and linguistic revival, and the establishment of Sámi parliaments. The Russian Sámi, however, did not have the same opportunities and were isolated behind the closed border until the dissolution of the Soviet Union. This book examines the following two decades and the Russian Sámi's attempt to achieve a linguistic revival, to mend the Cold War scars, and to establish their own independent ethno-political organizations.
This is a fair description of the ongoing human struggle; unfortunately, as
Solzhenitsyn famously said, the line dividing good from evil lies not between one

How Buddhism can help solve our environmental challenges: “Though her book is dense with facts, it reads like poetry or a series of koans.” —The Shambhala Sun We know that our earth is in crisis, but is the situation beyond repair? Are we on a path of planetary disaster where the only proper response is to prepare for our melancholic dystopian future? Is there a way out of our suspicious cynicism? In this book, a dharma heir of Robert Aitken Roshi uses this spiritual opportunity to change the very nature of our crisis—offering a profound message presented with clarity and assurance, and showing that engaged Buddhism provides a possible path to the necessary repair and healing.

A former FBI Special Agent and leading cyber-security expert offers a devastating and essential look at the misinformation campaigns, fake news, and electronic espionage operations that have become the cutting edge of modern warfare—and how we can protect ourselves and our country against them. Clint Watts electrified the nation when he testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. In Messing with the Enemy, the cyber and homeland security expert introduces us to a frightening world in which terrorists and cyber criminals don’t hack your computer, they hack your mind. Watts reveals how these malefactors use your information and that of your friends and family to work for them through social media, which they use to map your social networks, scour your world affiliations, and master your fears and preferences. Thanks to the schemes engineered by social media manipulators using you and your information, business executives have coughed up millions in fraudulent wire transfers, seemingly good kids have joined the Islamic State, and staunch anti-communist Reagan Republicans have cheered the Russian government’s hacking of a Democratic presidential candidate’s e-mails. Watts knows how they do it because he’s mirrored their methods to understand their intentions, combat their actions, and coopt their efforts. Watts examines a particular social media platform—from Twitter to internet Forums to Facebook to LinkedIn—and a specific bad actor—from al Qaeda to the Islamic State to the Russian and Syrian governments—to illuminate exactly how social media tracking is used for nefarious purposes. He explains how he’s learned, through his successes and his failures, to engage with hackers, terrorists, and even the Russians—and how these interactions have generated methods of fighting back. Shocking, funny, and eye-opening, Messing with the Enemy is a deeply urgent guide for living safe and smart in a super-connected world.

Born in Delaware's Brandywine Valley in 1807, Elizabeth Margaret Chandler was a young woman who was fully engaged in her time. Leaving comfort and middle-class Philadelphia wealth behind, she headed west in 1830 with brother, Thomas, and an aunt to begin a new life in the wilderness of the Michigan Territory. During the next four years, until her untimely death in November 1834, Chandler became a tireless local activist; at the same time, she participated aggressively in national political discussions about pressing social issues, in particular in the dialogue about the nascent women's movement and in the debates about Abolitionism as they began to develop in the 1820s and early 1830s. She was ladies' editor of Benjamin Lundy's Abolitionist Journal and a contemporary of William Lloyd Garrison. She wrote letters, articles, and poetry that appeared in the Abolitionist press, but at the same time she was a champion for public education at the local level. Within two years of her arrival in Michigan, she had established the territory's first anti-slave organization, the Logan Female Antislavery Society. This rich collection of personal letters, most written to family members during Chandler's brief life in Michigan, provides a remarkable view of the Northwest frontier in the 1830s, as well as profound insights into the ideology and origins of Abolitionism. Her letters also reveal much about the beliefs, attitudes, and actions of a remarkable young woman who some have seen as a precursor to the Grimké sisters.

This book studies the inter-relationship between the level of development of industrial capital and its effect and provides a framework for the redefinition of the concept `unorganized sector′. The author first demonstrates that the path followed by industrial capital in India was different from that in Europe, primarily because of India′s colonial experience. The second part of the book consists of a case study of the woollen hosiery industry. The consequences in terms of working class consciousness and the development of a trade union movement are examined.

The analogy of the torn fabric was first used by the author in response to a bereaved mother's cry: "I know what grief feels like; I don't know what it looks like." In "Mending the Torn Fabric: For Those Who Grieve and Those Who Want to Help Them", the author expands the metaphor to include earlier and future or potential losses as well as losses associated with the death that may be unrecognized or minimized. This book includes chapters that examine complications that may be present or may arise, suggestions for mending even the most torn fabric, and a chapter dedicated to friends who want to help. Stories bereaved persons have shared with the author through the years are interspersed throughout the book to provide examples of loss and mending.

In struggling to make sense of her own painful divorce, Mary Lou Redding looked to the Bible where she found guidance and hope. Her intimate book weaves her personal story with those from scripture to help other Christians who are facing divorce find God's grace in the midst of pain.Breaking and Mending looks at the spiritual issues of divorce, rather than the sociological ones, and allows the scriptures to illuminate and heal those who are facing this difficult transition. For example, chapter one deals with broken dreams and uses the story of Hosea and Gomer. Later chapters focus on forgiveness, breaking old patterns, forging a new identity as a single person, and searching for healthy relationships. Honest and straightforward, Redding has written a book which addresses the hard issues of divorce, but always with hope in God's unfolding grace.
