APOCALYPSE OF THE BARBARIANS

Item Description

SANDY KROLICK, HOBART CLASS OF 1975

The background chatter is becoming increasingly loud: America is facing a terminal crisis, a singular and perfect turning in its short history. While we stand as benefactor and apotheosis to an arduous historical legacy called Western civilization, the whole story - from its stunning beginnings in the ancient Near East nearly six-thousand years ago to the post-millennial American hegemony - the entire edifice rests upon a cluster of hypotheses about the world. These continue to shoulder our commonsense understanding of life, while thwarting any recollection of what was lost with the emergence of that history. Apocalypse is an inquiry into those remote and founding hypotheses. Rummaging through current global affairs these essays serve as a handle for unwinding some ingrained historical prejudices so we may overcome the forced erasure of our pre-historic past, and recover the memory of another, perhaps more humane way to live.

COACHING FOR CAREGIVERS

Item Description

YOSAIF AUGUST, HOBART CLASS OF '64

"If you're ready to show up for practice, Yosaif 's coaching can help you and your loved one get the love and support you need." -Bernie Siegel, MD, Author of Love, Medicine and Miracles; co-author with Yosaif August, of Help Me to Heal (Hay House, 2003) This book promotes caregivers' resiliency and helps them sustain themselves by reaching out for the love and support they and their loved ones need. It addresses the paradox of how difficult it is to help people who are stressed out and overwhelmed without, inadvertently, adding to their stress. This is especially so with caregivers who are at risk of burning out. This lively and easy to use how-to manual coaches caregivers - family and friends who are providing care to a loved one - to reach out for help before they, themselves, get so depleted that they burn out (and, in turn, need caregivers for themselves!). It does it in a way that their reaching out does not become just another item on their to-do list. In his introduction, Yosaif August, the author, invites caregivers to use the book as a just-in-time resource - to leaf through it, find topics that speak to them and then use it in a series of ten minute reads. Part One of the book coaches them to take stock of what they need, what their strengths and resources are, and any beliefs they have that may be holding them back from reaching out for love and support. Part Two coaches them in finding the best ways for them to do it, including using the new caresites i.e. free websites for them to use in communicating with people who care about them. The third section provides resources for them to use to help sustain them in providing care for their loved one. Mr. August is an award-winning healthcare innovator (inventor of Bedscapes(r)), life coach and keynote presenter. He was a family caregiver for his own parents and mother-in-law. In this book he draws on what he learned from those experiences, from his life coaching clients and research interviews he conducted with family caregivers who have been especially effective in reaching out for what they and their loved ones needed. Besides the caregivers themselves, it is also a valuable resource for friends, neighbors, professional colleagues, fellow congregants and others who are concerned that these caregivers are at risk of burning out but haven't yet found a way to help them. As the author says, "friends don't let friends burn out any more than friends let friends drive drunk." With this book in hand, they can reach out to the caregiver and offer to help them use it. This book is endorsed by a wide range of respected experts in the world of caregiving, spirituality and medicine - and by the leaders of the three major caresites (CarePages, Caring Bridge and Lotsa Helping Hands).

Community-Based Global Learning

Item Description
The Theory and Practice of Ethical Engagement at Home and Abroad

RICHARD KIELY (HOBART CLASS OF ’86) and Eric Hartman, Christopher Boettcher and Jessica Friedrichs Foreword by Rafia Zakaria

International education, service-learning, and community-based global learning programs are robust with potential. They can positively impact communities, grow civil society networks, and have transformative effects for students who become more globally aware and more engaged in global civil society - at home and abroad. Yet such programs are also packed with peril. Clear evidence indicates that poor forms of such programming have negative impacts on vulnerable persons, including medical patients and children, while cementing stereotypes and reinforcing patterns of privilege and exclusion. These dangers can be mitigated, however, through collaborative planning, design, and evaluation that advances mutually beneficial community partnerships, critically reflective practice, thoughtful facilitation, and creative use of resources. Drawing on research and insights from several academic disciplines and community partner perspectives, along with the authors' decades of applied, community-based development and education experience, they present a model of community-based global learning that clearly espouses an equitable balance between learning methodology and a community development philosophy. Emphasizing the key drivers of community-driven learning and service, cultural humility and exchange, seeking global citizenship, continuous and diverse forms of critically reflective practice, and ongoing attention to power and privilege, this book constitutes a guide to course or program design that takes into account the unpredictable and dynamic character of domestic and international community-based global learning experiences, the varying characteristics of destination communities, and a framework through which to integrate any discipline or collaborative project. Readers will appreciate the numerous toolboxes and reflective exercises to help them think through the creation of independent programming or courses that support targeted learning and community-driven development. The book ultimately moves beyond course and program design to explore how to integrate these objectives and values in the wider curriculum and throughout formal and informal community-based learning partnerships.

CRAZY CHRISTIANS

Item Description

MICHAEL B. CURRY, HOBART CLASS OF 1975

Popular and widely known preacher, Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina. Based on his 2012 General Convention homily and video that went viral on the web. Includes the acclaimed 2012 General Convention address: We need some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God--like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world from the nightmare it often is into something close to the dream that God dreams for it. And for those who would follow him, those who would be his disciples, those who would live as and be the people of the Way? It might come as a shock, but they are called to craziness. --from Bishop Curry's "Crazy Christians" address to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Indianapolis.

Courtney Apple (William Smith Class of ‘08 and Bill Glaab (Hobart Class of ’06)
