This study examines how people interact with those whose political views differ from their own in the context of the contemporary United States. It links political theory and empirical research and suggests that it is doubtful that an extremely activist political culture can also be a heavily deliberative one.

The Other Side of the World: Vision and Reality embraces and celebrates the experiences of idealistic, young Peace Corps volunteers as they confronted the ancient and enigmatic civilization of India four decades ago. Prompted by memories and emotions tapped during a gathering on the 40-year reunion of their return to the States, members of India 44 A&B provide reflections that are honest, compelling, insightful, riotous, humbling, and yet redemptive. These reflections give expression to feelings long repressed and, at the same time, uncover the mysterious ways in which their service in remote India transformed and redirected the trajectory of their lives. Their stories provide a humorous and deeply moving description of village life, where imperfect language skills and limited technical capabilities interacted with good intentions and stubborn dedication to produce embarrassment on the one hand, and the occasional minor miracle on the other. This is not a feel-good testimony to the Peace Corps on its golden anniversary.Rather, it is a sobering depiction of the lives of volunteers living in one of the Peace Corps' most demanding site countries, where frustrations and challenges were found in abundance. Yet at the end of the day, these stories generally attest to the wisdom of the Peace Corps concept, which affirms the powers of volunteerism and the giving of self. For many, it was the first time these volunteers had articulated their feelings since leaving India. Mary Jo Clark, Thomas Corbett, Michael Simonds and Haywood Turrentine compiled the book. Respectively, the authors reside in San Diego, California, Madison, Wisconsin, the greater Hartford area, and Birmingham, Alabama. http: //sbpra.com/HaywoodTurrentin

Living with the Other Side: A Tale of Fairies, Sprites, and Spirits shares stories from the life of author Deborah Mills-tales of how fairies, sprites, and spirit guides brought miracles, peace, joy, abundance into her life. Beginning her tale in early childhood, Mills introduces the Chief, the old Native American who protects and guides her with gentleness while preparing her for things to come. We also meet Grandmother, who is kindly, calm, and sweet with a long pigtail down her back, sharing the comfort and the love only she can give. There is also the spirit of death, Michael-a young, beautiful guide who lets us know that death is a journey, a step into a new place to exist with peace. We go on the path of life where the fairies dance, the sprites gather to share messages, and the spirit guides protect and provide guidance. These wonderful souls are the spirits that teach, guide, and protect us-our friends. Living with the Other Side shows us that having something more on the other side-to dance with the fairies, to sing with the sprites, to walk and talk with the spirits-provides Mills with the confidence, joy, and ability to stand firm in her beliefs as it could for any of us. "This book is a wonderfully inspiring work! Deborah's spirit comes through each page and has the effect of renewing ones spirit and faith that we each have a purpose in life and anything is possible." -Laura P.

God has always had a cure for his people. With the Israelites it was the opening of the Red Sea; with Abraham it was the ram in the bush; and with the disciples it was Jesus in the boat with them. In each instance, God's people were at their wit's end and saw no way out. But it was always God who came to the rescue. In these last days, with extreme weather disasters, greed in the pharmaceutical industry, and deficiency in Medicare, in order to survive this coming era of manipulation and greed, we'll have to be like Moses and Abraham. We'll have to walk by faith and not by sight, and just as the disciples, we're going to have to rely on the word of God. Join new author Evangelist Joyce Smith as the Lord steers her into a revolutionary journey with his word. Travel with her as she leaves the natural realm and passes over into the spirit realm with God's word as her shield and buckler. When you come to your Mt. Moriah, your Red Sea, and even when you decide to get in the boat with Jesus, fear not! Jesus will be with you as he was with the disciples and Evangelist Smith, because he said, Let Us Pass Over to the Other Side.

On The Other Side of Bitter is written to encourage the many hurting women who have and maybe yet sacrificing and giving of themselves without benefit of any type of personal satisfaction. It is for those who now find themselves feeling hopeless, helpless, empty, older and without purpose. There are thousands of women with similar feelings. Some got this way by remaining in abusive relationships, remaining too long in unfulfilling positions of employment and others as the result of being a no longer needed dutiful wife and mother to name a few. While feeling alone and isolated they are found in every race, socio-economic station in life, religion, age and ethnicity. They are the educated and non-educated alike. Some are yet in these situations in the workplace, in fancy homes and great careers, some even in the pews or positions of leadership at church. Some have exited these situations some by choice others forced. The one common denominator between them all is a hurting heart. Some of these women find their way into support groups or private counseling sessions. But, for the many throughout our nation that will not make their way into any group or private sessions I write this book. Naomi quite possibly was a woman as described here. She, too, had sacrificed and given of her self to the point of becoming bitter. Like many reading this book, she might have thought she had her true feelings concealed. That is until the proverbial straw that broke the camels back happened. Her husband and sons died. She was left in a foreign land. A place where she might have gone out of duty to her husband not desire. The liberties taken to portray what might have been the reasons for this woman, Naomis bitterness result from looking deeper into the things she spoke. Much can be detected if we would only listen to what a person says. But, maybe that is why so many with hurting hearts have become bitter.
