"[A]n eloquent, brave, big-hearted book…about the timeless anxieties and emotions of parenthood, and the modern twists thereon.” —James Fallows, The Atlantic Love That Boy is a uniquely personal story about the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations. What we want for our children—popularity, normalcy, achievement, genius—and what they truly need—grit, empathy, character—are explored by National Journal’s Ron Fournier, who weaves his extraordinary journey to acceptance around the latest research on childhood development and stories of other loving-but-struggling parents.

Peggy comes of age in a rat race with another name: meritocracy. The story begins when she leaves her cold and tacky Long Island background behind, graduating from Tufts University. But her background isn't far enough behind. She still carries a drawing she found with her brother everywhere she goes. It needs an appraisal from a major museum but that seems to take too long. She wants to move on to San Francisco, Brooklyn, Oxford.Along the way the urge for going is matched by her urge to follow a man with high ranking in the art world. He is the only one who can give her the attribution she needs, but she has to follow him for thousands of miles. The cooler and more virtuous he is, the more power he has over her life.The meritocracy rewards and punishes in perverse ways.

Who's That Boy? is a major contribution to the postmodern understanding of gender issues. This new edition, under the aegis of the Bending Psychoanalysis Book Series, includes a Foreword by Series Editor Jack Drescher and an Afterword in which Lynne Layton addresses the evolution of her thinking since the book's publication in 1998.

This book is the first major study of Canadian women filmmakers since the groundbreaking Gendering the Nation (1999). The Gendered Screen updates the subject with discussions of important filmmakers such as Deepa Mehta, Anne Wheeler, Mina Shum, Lynne Stopkewich, Léa Pool, and Patricia Rozema, whose careers have produced major bodies of work. It also introduces critical studies of newer filmmakers such as Andrea Dorfman and Sylvia Hamilton and new media video artists. Feminist scholars are re-examining the ways in which authorship, nationality, and gender interconnect. Contributors to this volume emphasize a diverse feminist study of film that is open, inclusive, and self-critical. Issues of hybridity and transnationality as well as race and sexual orientation challenge older forms of discourse on national cinema. Essays address the transnational filmmaker, the queer filmmaker, the feminist filmmaker, the documentarist, and the video artist—just some of the diverse identities of Canadian women filmmakers working in both commercial and art cinema today.

This volume makes available for the first time in English the work of a significant Indian nationalist author, Pandey Bechan Sharma, better known in India as “Ugra,” meaning “extreme.” His book Chocolate, a 1927 collection of eight stories, was the first work of Hindi fiction to focus on male same-sex relations, and its publication sparked India’s first public debates about homosexuality. Many prominent figures, including Gandhi, weighed in on the debates, which lasted into the 1950s. This edition, translated and with an introduction by Ruth Vanita, includes the full text of Chocolate along with an excerpt from Ugra’s novel Letters of Some Beautiful Ones (also published in 1927). In her introduction, Vanita situates Ugra and his writings in relation to Indian nationalist struggles and Hindi literary movements and feuds, and she analyzes the controversies that surrounded Chocolate. Those outraged by its titillating portrayal of homosexuality labeled the collection obscene. On the other side, although no one explicitly defended homosexuality in public, some justified Ugra’s work by arguing that it was the artist’s job to educate through provocation. The stories depict male homoeroticism in quotidian situations: a man brings a lover to his disapproving friend’s house; a good-looking young man becomes the object of desire at his school. The love never ends well, but the depictions are not always unsympathetic. Although Ugra claimed that the stories were aimed at suppressing homosexuality by exposing it, Vanita highlights the ambivalence of his characterizations. Cosmopolitan, educated, and hedonistic, the Hindu and Muslim men he portrayed quote Hindi and Urdu poetry to express their love, and they justify same-sex desire by drawing on literature, philosophy, and world history. Vanita’s introduction includes anecdotal evidence that Chocolate was enthusiastically received by India’s homosexual communities.

President Jack called you and explained that you must find a boy code named Jeff, or maybe using the name J.C., within hours. It is a matter of national security. Yes you! Can you imagine that this book was created for you by God Almighty to explain the extraordinary and super-spiritual? Imagine that in this world nothing is happening to you. Everything is happening through you. God Almighty is in you. You are in Christ and Christ is in you. We all live in Gods unconditional love. Do you believe in the process of Divine Inspiration? We all are being inspired by God Almightys unconditional love, all the time. God is in total power and even what we think is bad, is for Gods Good. Life is Gods love interpreted so you can understand it is translated into many forms. J.C. has the love to die to save the world. Do you? There is no such thing as death, we all live in Christ and in God. Christ proved it so why not believe Him. Hi, my names Mark I am 13 years old. My dad is the preacher at the largest church in town. Can you guess how I got my name? I am supposed to be a good kid but after you hear the story, you wont call me good. Oh, God I am sorry! I hate kids calling me, preacher boy. Why are people so cruel? My teacher told me that the two types of kids, who get into the most trouble are, policemans kids. and preachers kids. This year I may just prove it. I hope my dad dont find this, on my computer. He would kill me. Dear God, please show me if your real. I need to know. Or are you just a story like Santa Claus. I just dont know anymore. Please Jesus, help me! I have a mission. That mission is to know the truth. Im not looking to explain the truth to anybody. I only want to know the truth for myself. Do you think that is selfish? I dont. No one can teach you who God is. If there is a God, then you must experience God. So all I wanna know. God, who are you? Are you real? Yesterday we had a funeral for my mom. I know she believed in You, God. Is she safe in heaven? Oh sure, that is what everyone tells me, but I need to know! When I was a kid they told me Santa Claus was real. God I wish I would never of went to the funeral. After the funeral everyone one went up to talk to my father. I just sat there for over one half-hour. No one talked to me. It was like I wasnt there. No one cares, not even my dad. God, I dont think you do either. All dad does is tell me what to do. I just cant be that good. God forgive me. Im no Good. I gave up. It is no use. Today I start the eighth grade. I can see, its going to be a bad year. I got in the lunch line and a new boy, about 14 or 15 years old, asked me to give him some money for lunch. I thought. "Some lawmaker had the idea that he would lower the amount of money that a parent can make to receive free lunches, for their kid. That lawmaker saved money by taking food out of a kids mouth." The kid said. "Will you lone me enough money to buy lunch? I really mean: Will you give me enough money, because I cant pay you back." I saw a tear in his eye. I just knew, he was telling the truth. I never saw this boy before. I hoped this would be the last time. The boy had long hair, an old green army type shirt, and old blue jeans. I condemned him, as not being good enough. Anyone could wear better than that to school. I gave him the money he wanted. I was surprised to see him walk out of the lunchroom, and down the hallway. If he wanted to eat lunch why was he not staying in line? Even

This book is a collection of studies applying game-theoretical concepts and ideas to analysing the semantics of natural language and some formal languages. The bulk of the book consists of several papers by Hintikka, Carlson and Saarinen and discusses several of the central problems of the semantics of natural language. The topics covered are the semantics of natural language quantifiers, conditionals, pronouns and anaphora more generally. Hintikka’s famous essay presenting examples of "branching quantifier structures" in English, as well as one formulating his "any-every thesis", are included. The book also includes Hintikka’s closely argued philosophical discussion of the relationships between the new semantical games with the language games of Wittgenstein. Other papers apply the game-theoretical approach to formal languages including tense logics and tense anaphora (Saarinen), deontic logic and Ross’ paradox (Hintikka), and usual predicate logic (Rantala). The latter amounts to an explication of the "impossible possible" worlds as is shown in Hintikka’s concluding paper.

It is often claimed that the kind of love that is variously deemed 'romantic' or 'true' did not exist in antiquity. Yet, ancient literature abounds with stories that seem to adhere precisely to this kind of love. This volume focuses on such literature and the concepts of love it espouses. The volume differs from and challenges much existing classical scholarship which has traditionally privileged the theme of sex over love and prose-genres over those of poetry. By conversely focusing on love and poetry, the present volume freshly explores central poets in ancient literature, such Homer, Sappho, Terence, Catullus, Virgil, Horace and Ovid, alongside less canonized, such as the anonymous poet of The Lament for Bion, Philodemus and Sulpicia. The chapters, which are written by world-leading as well as younger scholars, reveal that Greek and Latin concepts of love seem interconnected, that such love is as relevant for hetero- as homoerotic couples, and that such ideas of love follow the mainstream of poetry throughout antiquity. In addition to the general reader interested in the history of love, this volume is relevant for students and scholars of the ancient world and the poetic tradition.
