“Imagine a novel as verbally cunning as A Clockwork Orange, as harrowing as The Painted Bird, as exuberant and twee as Candide, and you have Everything Is Illuminated . . . Read it, and you'll feel altered, chastened — seared in the fire of something new.” — Washington Post With only a yellowing photograph in hand, a young man — also named Jonathan Safran Foer — sets out to find the woman who might or might not have saved his grandfather from the Nazis. Accompanied by an old man haunted by memories of the war, an amorous dog named Sammy Davis, Junior, Junior, and the unforgettable Alex, a young Ukrainian translator who speaks in a sublimely butchered English, Jonathan is led on a quixotic journey over a devastated landscape and into an unexpected past. As their adventure unfolds, Jonathan imagines the history of his grandfather’s village, conjuring a magical fable of startling symmetries that unite generations across time. As his search moves back in time, the fantastical history moves forward, until reality collides with fiction in a heart-stopping scene of extraordinary power. “A rambunctious tour de force of inventive and intelligent storytelling . . . Foer can place his reader’s hand on the heart of human experience, the transcendent beauty of human connections. Read, you can feel the life beating.” — Philadelphia Inquirer

From its beginnings, the Church has presented itself as a human phenomenon that carries the divine within it. As a social fact, its reality given form by men and women, the Church has always affirmed that its existence surpasses the human reality of its components and that it stands as the continuation of the event of Christ's entry into human history. Why the Church?, the final volume in McGill-Queen's University Press's trilogy of Luigi Giussani's writings, explores the Church's definition of itself as both human and divine and evaluates the truth of this claim.

`A highly topical, interesting and lively analysis of ordinary internet use, based on both theoretically competent reflections and sound ethnographic material' - Joost van Loon, Reader in Social Theory at Nottingham Trent University Internet Society investigates internet use and it's implications for society through insights into the daily experiences of ordinary users. Drawing on an original study of non-professional, 'ordinary' users at home, this book examines how people interpret, domesticate and creatively appropriate the Internet by integrating it into the projects and activities of their everyday lives. Maria Bakardjieva's theoretical framework uniquely combines concepts from several schools of thought (social constructivism, critical theory, phenomenological sociology) to provide a conception of the user as an agent in the field of technological development and new media shaping. She: - examines the evolution of the Internet into a mass medium - interrogates what users make of this new communication medium - evaluates the social and cultural role of the Internet by looking at the immediate level of users' engagement with it - exposes the dual life of technology as invader and captive; colonizer and colonized This book will appeal to academics and researchers in social studies of technology, communication and media studies, cultural studies, philosophy of technology and ethnography.

Ciascun genitore desidera il meglio per il proprio figlio ed essere per lui la madre perfetta, il padre perfetto. È scontato e banale, ma nella vita di tutti i giorni — quella in cui i bambini piangono, si arrabbiano, strillano come ossessi, desiderano cose contrarie alla sopravvivenza — le cose si fanno più complicate... e invece di goderci la straordinaria avventura di essere genitore, tendiamo a vivere ogni reazione del bambino come un continuo test sulle nostre capacità. Il linguaggio del cuore, ispirato alla psicoterapia cognitivo-comportamentale, e in particolare alla Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, è un prezioso manuale di istruzioni, consigli, suggerimenti e strategie per aiutare mamme, papà, nonni e educatori a: • Crescere un figlio senza proteggerlo dalle emozioni, anche dolorose, insegnandogli così a tollerare le frustrazioni e le difficoltà fisiologiche della vita • Ascoltare le sue sensazioni, senza reprimerle, inibirle o prevenirle • Accettare i suoi vissuti rinunciando a cercare di «sterilizzarli» come si fa con il biberon per difenderlo dai germi. Grazie anche ai numerosi esempi tratti dall’esperienza clinica e personale dell’autrice, in cui sarà facile immedesimarsi e riconoscere la propria esperienza, i genitori saranno aiutati a essere più consapevoli dei propri valori, ovvero di cosa davvero considerano importante trasmettere ai propri figli, e a impegnarsi a riconoscere il diritto dei bambini alle loro emozioni. Avvertenze per le mamme e i papà: 1. Questo non è un libro che si propone di essere un libro di verità o di istruzioni generali su come maneggiare e crescere figli felici. Quindi, niente di ciò che si afferma qui può essere elevato a legge generale da rispettare sempre, salvo finire nell’inferno delle mamme e dei papà. 2. Nel leggere questo libro, potresti sentirti in alcuni momenti in colpa o inadeguato come genitore o arrabbiato con te stesso o… con chi scrive! Non ti preoccupare e non lanciare subito via il libro dalla finestra. Se lo stai leggendo o, in generale, se nonostante la stanchezza e la fatica leggi qualcosa di utile per il tuo bimbo, sei sicuramente un genitore attento al benessere del proprio figlio. E questa è già una condizione centrale perché tu lo cresca bene e felice. 3. Se ti senti inadeguata/o o fai fatica ad accettare le emozioni che provi nel pensare alle difficoltà che incontri nell’educare il tuo bimbo, ricordati che devi prima di tutto accettare i tuoi pensieri e le tue emozioni dolorose, le tue paure e le tue difficoltà; solo dopo potrai accettare pienamente tuo figlio.
