Imani Perry - 2022-01-25
Calificación de Goodreads
"South to America" takes readers on an essential journey through the American South and its impact on American identity. In this powerful and thought-provoking book, author Imani Perry argues that the South is the heartland of the nation, shaping our history, wealth, and politics. Through personal stories and historical anecdotes, Perry reveals the truth about life in the South and its connection to the broader narrative of American culture. Her journey brings her in contact with Southerners from all walks of life, offering an honest and sensitive portrayal of their rituals, traditions, and struggles. As discussions about the South rise again, "South to America" serves as a reminder that to build a more humane future for the United States, we must center our focus below the Mason-Dixon Line.

With humor and precision, Sedaris captures the misanthropy and desire for connection that drives us all.

Just finished David Sedaris latest book, “Happy-Go-Lucky.” It’s one of my favorites of his. Though not quite as funny as some of the earlier ones, it’s much more introspective, transparent, and reflective. His thoughts on family, trauma, and loss were incredible.      fuente
Refuge book cover
How the State Shapes Human Potential
Heba Gowayed - 2022-04-05
Calificación de Goodreads
Refuge delves into how refugees are denied their full potential by residing countries that don't recognize their abilities and invest in the tools they need to prosper. The book follows Syrians fleeing their war-torn homeland in pursuit of a better life, and shines a much-needed light on the experiences of displaced individuals. Heba Gowayed spent three years documenting the strikingly divergent journeys of Syrian families from similar economic and social backgrounds during their crucial first years of resettlement in the United States and Canada and asylum in Germany. Gowayed argues that human capital is less an attribute of newcomers than a product of the same racist welfare systems that have long shaped the contours of national belonging.

However, when an older slave seeks to curry favor by preaching the master's gospel, Isaiah and Samuel's love is seen as a danger to the plantation's harmony.

The Myth of Persecution
How Early Christians Invented a Story of Martyrdom
Candida Moss - 2013-03-05
Calificación de Goodreads
This book challenges the myth of Christian persecution in the early Roman Empire, exposing it as an exaggerated and invented story. Candida Moss, a leading expert on early Christianity, reveals how the idea of martyrdom is still used today to silence dissent and galvanize culture warriors. While violence against Christians does occur in certain parts of the world, this book urges modern Christians to abandon the conspiratorial assumption that the world is out to get them, and instead, find spiritual guidance in the true history of the early church.
