In the United States today, the term "terrorism" conjures up images of dangerous, outside threats: religious extremists and suicide bombers in particular. Harder to see but all the more pervasive is the terrorism perpetuated by the United States itself, whether through military force overseas or woven into the very fabric of society at home. Henry Giroux, in this passionate and incisive book, turns the conventional wisdom on terrorism upside down, demonstrating how fear and lawlessness have become organizing principles of life in the United States, and violence an acceptable form of social mediation. He addresses the most pressing issues of the moment, from officially sanctioned torture to militarized police forces to austerity politics. Giroux also examines the ongoing degradation of the education system and how young people in particular suffer its more nefarious outcomes. Against this grim picture, Giroux posits a politics of hope and a commitment to accurate-and radical-historical memory. He draws on a long, distinguished career developing the tenets of critical pedagogy to propose a cure for our addiction to terrorism: a kind of "public pedagogy" that challenges the poisoned narratives of "America's dis-imagination machine."

This monograph is an innovative endeavour in many ways. First, it brings to the fore the synergy between human evolution and economic and social progress. Second, it acknowledges the critical contributions from the routine adherence to contextual truth and contextual non-violence of humanity at large. Finally, it argues that the world is sliding towards evolutionary failure by not moving further forward in the adherence to the two core human values. For all those interested in development in a holistic sense, the book will inspire thinking and debate. Human evolution will go on – one way or the other – with or without adherence to truth and non-violence. The book stresses the time is now, to go for the best and eschew the worst.

With rampant changes to family structures over the past decades, grandparenting has gained new and profound social and economic significance. Despite its importance, however, grandparenting's many dimensions are still poorly understood. Contemporary Grandparenting provides a much-needed corrective to this. The first book to take a sociological approach to the new roles grandparents have, it combines new theories with up-to-date empirical findings in an effort to document the changing nature--across the globe-- of these important family members. Taking up this unprecedented task, the contributors here analyze how grandparenting changes under different welfare states and within different cultural contexts. It examines a range of specific topics, such as the breakdown of the nuclear family and the gender roles of grandfathers. Sensitive to the conflicting norms and expectations grandparents face, this book shows how they can act to forge new identities within today's powerful societal and cultural constraints
