"Love thy neighbor" is an impossible exhortation. Good neighbors greet us on the street and do small favors, but neighbors also startle us with sounds at night and unleash their demons on us, they monitor and reproach us, and betray us to authorities. The moral principles prescribed for friendship, civil society, and democratic public life apply imperfectly to life around home, where we interact day to day without the formal institutions, rules of conduct, and means of enforcement that guide us in other settings. In Good Neighbors, Nancy Rosenblum explores how encounters among neighbors create a democracy of everyday life, which has been with us since the beginning of American history and is expressed in settler, immigrant, and suburban narratives and in novels, poetry, and popular culture. During disasters, like Hurricane Katrina, the democracy of everyday life is a resource for neighbors who improvise rescue and care. Degraded, this framework can give way to betrayal by neighbors, as faced by the Japanese Americans interned during World War II, or to terrible violence such as the lynching of African Americans. Under extreme conditions the barest act of neighborliness is a bulwark against total ethical breakdown. The elements of the democracy of everyday life—reciprocity, speaking out, and "live and let live"—comprise a democratic ideal not reducible to public principles of justice or civic virtue, but it is no less important. The democracy of everyday life, Rosenblum argues, is the deep substrate of democracy in America and can be its saving remnant.

Good Neighbours is a fantasy novel woven with the fascinating past of the British population, beginning at the Neolithic era in 7000 BC and spanning more than nine thousand years, to the modern day. The Iron Age, Saxon Invasion and the Normans are just a few of the wide array of topics covered in this unique novel.

Robert Mitchum was one of the most charismatic stars of the ‘classic Hollywood’ era. His screen persona was the essence of cool: tough but vulnerable, accepting of his fate with languid charm and easy humour. His films have often been seen through the lens of film noir, but they had something else in common too: the characters he played in Out of the Past, The Big Steal, His Kind of Woman, Second Chance, Where Danger Lives, and Angel Face seemed irrevocably drawn to Mexico. Mitchum’s sequence of films south of the border coincided with the advent of the ‘golden age’ of Mexico’s own film industry, a new cinematic wave that drew on serious artistic influences from the muralists to Sergei Eisenstein, and that was led by director Emilio Fernández and cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa whose 1943 film María Candelaria, starring former Hollywood siren Dolores del Río, had won a prize at Cannes. Under the Roosevelt administration’s ‘Good Neighbour’ policy - a wartime effort to court friendly Latin American countries - Hollywood’s portrayal of Mexico changed: out went the all-purpose exoticism, where ‘south of the border’ was a metaphor for the loosening of moral and sexual standards, and in came a more nuanced approach. In this authoritative study, Liam White encourages us to take a fresh look at how Mitchum’s films broke with Hollywood convention in the way they depicted Mexico; how Mexico’s own film industry boomed, becoming the first example of ‘world cinema’ to have an impact on the post-War world; and how its success attracted significant US talent - from John Steinbeck to John Ford - to work on bi-national projects.

Most people in the West have no intention of ever attending church. Indeed, many only use Christ's name as a swear word. And while some prominent churches are growing, much of this is transfer rather than true growth. Yet many of our approaches to evangelism still assume a Christian mentality. We expect people to come to us when we put on a good church service. We need to meet the unchurched where they are, in the context of everyday life, shifting the focus from putting on attractive events to creating attractive communities. Allow this book, with its focus on Peter's first letter, to change your expectations and your thinking. Dr Tim Chester is a leader within The Crowded House and Director of the Northern Training Institute. He is a prolific author. He is married to Helen and they have two daughters. Steve Timmis is the Acts 29 Network Director for Western Europe and Director of the Porterbrook Network. He is also the founder of The Crowded House. He is married to Janet and they have four children. Tim and Steve are joint authors of Total Church: A Radical Reshaping around Gospel and Community (IVP).

Brutal, schockierend, berührend – ein literarisches Meisterwerk Es ist vier Uhr früh, als sich Katrina Marino auf den Heimweg macht. Die Straßen sind menschenleer, trotzdem hat Katrina das Gefühl, beobachtet zu werden. Als sie sich wenig später ihrer Haustür nähert, nimmt sie aus dem Augenwinkel eine Gestalt wahr. Noch bevor sie reagieren kann, ist der Angreifer über ihr und sticht mit einem Messer auf sie ein. Katrina fängt an zu schreien. Katrinas Nachbarn hören ihre Schreie. Alle schauen aus ihren Fenstern, doch wer unternimmt etwas? Auf dem Heimweg von der Arbeit wird Katrina Marino in den frühen Morgenstunden Opfer eines brutalen Überfalls. Der Angriff findet direkt vor ihrer Haustür statt – und unter den Augen ihrer Nachbarn, die fast ausnahmslos untätig bleiben. Jeder hat mit seinem eigenen kleinen Drama zu kämpfen. Der 19-jährige Patrick etwa, der zur Armee eingezogen werden soll, aber für seine kranke Mutter sorgen muss. Oder Diane, die sich mit ihrem Ehemann streitet, weil dieser sie betrügt. Sie hören Katrinas Schreie und sehen, dass vor ihrer Haustür etwas Schreckliches passiert. Katrina spürt die Betrachter und ihre Blicke und hofft auf Hilfe. Und sie kämpft gegen den Tod. „Ein Akt der Gewalt” basiert auf einer wahren Geschichte, dem Mord an Kitty Genovese, der 1964 weltweit für Schlagzeilen sorgte und dessen Umstände später unter dem Begriff Bystander-Effekt in die Kriminalgeschichte eingingen.

The South Caucasus region, comprising the former Soviet states of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia occupies a key strategic location, squeezed between the Black and Caspian Seas, Iran, Russia and Turkey. Since the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, the region has become an arena of geopolitical confrontation with regional powers such as Russia, Turkey and Iran vying for influence in the face of growing Western involvement. The Russian military intervention in Georgia in 2008 not only raised questions about Moscow's intentions towards its 'Near Abroad' and the future direction of its foreign policy, it also demonstrated that ostensibly local separatist disputes have serious ramifications for regional relations and the wider international community. In this book, German explores the extent of regional cooperation in the South Caucasus, analyses the reasons for the relative lack of regional cooperation and assesses the potential for deeper cooperation in the future.
