GLOBAL PUNK

Item Description

KEVIN DUNN, Professor of Political Science

Global Punk examines the global phenomenon of DIY (do-it-yourself) punk, arguing that it provides a powerful tool for political resistance and personal self-empowerment. Drawing examples from across the evolution of punk from the streets of 1976 London to the alleys of contemporary Jakarta Global Punk is both historically rich and global in scope. Looking beyond the music to explore DIY punk as a lived experience, Global Punk examines the ways in which punk contributes to the process of disalienation and political engagement. The book critically examines the impact that DIY punk has had on both individuals and communities, and offers chapter-length investigations of two important aspects of DIY punk culture: independent record labels and self-published zines. Grounded in scholarly theories, but written in a highly accessible style, Global Punk shows why DIY punk remains a vital cultural form for hundreds of thousands of people across the globe today."

JUDAISM INSIDE OUT

Item Description

JOSHUA CHASAN, HOBART CLASS OF 1966

Judaism Inside Out eloquently evokes the power of the spirituality of Israel. Far more than a nation-state, Israel is a way of human living. At a time when human violence threatens life itself, Jews all over the world are called to reclaim the spiritual purposes of their lives.

Just as the sages of Israel created rabbinical Judaism following the destruction of the Second Temple, Judaism Inside Out urges contemporary Jews to be innovative, in thought and practice, in the wake of the Holocaust and the reestablishment of independent Jewish sovereignty.

This is an important book for Jews and non-Jews alike, a challenge for religious pluralists of all traditions to seize the opportunity to redefine contemporary political discourse. Exposing the bigotry of religious and national fundamentalism, Judaism Inside Out reclaims for religion a politics based on the personal quest for self respect and mutual acceptance.

OASIS OF WISDOM: The Worlds Of The Desert Fathers And Mother

Item Description

DAVID KELLER, HOBART GRADUATE

The life and wisdom of the desert fathers and mothers is not only retained in historical volumes, but has been a constant presence throughout the development of the church. A formative influence since the time of the early Christians, this wisdom has the power to transform and nurture even today. Using six fundamental aspects of desert monastic life as windows—The Cell, Patience, Praxis, Labor and Time, Solitude and Silence, and Humility—Oasis of Wisdom reveals the world that created the wisdom of early Christian monastic men and women. With this experiential approach to learning, Keller goes beyond simple reflection by providing substantial historical background, including the environment of solitude, ascetic disciplines, labor, and daily life experiences. Touching on the social, religious, political, and linguistic influences of the culture, it is an ideal introduction for modern readers with limited backgrounds in theology or church history. Oasis of Wisdom is ideal for those seeking spiritual mentoring or a discipline of prayer, and will appeal to those from all denominations and backgrounds, from those new to church history to oblates. The richness of this ancient wisdom will challenge modern Christians to catch the spirit of the desert elders and join in their struggle to live an authentic human life. Chapters are: "Politeia: The Monastic World of the Desert Fathers and Mothers," "Oikoumene: The Inhabited World Surrounding the Desert Fathers and Mothers," "Sunrise to Sunrise: The Daily Lives of Early Egyptian Desert Elders and Monastic Communities," "The Cell: Meeting God and Ourselves," "Patience: Learning Not to Run from God or Authentic Human Life," "Stillness and Silence: Being Present to God, Ourselves, and the World," "Praxis: An Ascetic Vocation that Forms, Nourishes and Guards the Soul," "Praxis and Labor: The Sanctification of Daily Life," "Humility: Making Christ Tangible," and "Two Deserts." Also includes an introduction and a bibliography.
