Multicultural Questions, Christian Joppke & Steveb Lukes - Editors
13 Christian Joppke & Steveb Lukes - Editors Multicultural Questions
Oxford University Press 226401 Great Britain 2002 019829610X / 9780198296102 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket This volume assembles leading scholars from a range of disciplines to debate multiculturalism in theory and practice. The volume is grouped around four central questions raised by multiculturalism; Is universalism ethnocentric?; Does multiculturalism threaten citizenship?; Do minorities require group rights?; and what can Europe learn from North America? The book aims to answer these questions by moving the debate about multicultural questions into a more consensual mode. The authors show a resistance to either endorsing or rejecting multiculturalism, but a preference for dissecting and differentiating the concrete historical and geographical contexts in which specified versions of multiculturalism make sense, and others in which they do not. 267 pages.

Pan Macmillan 242695 Australia 2004 1405036117 / 9781405036115 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition A good life'. This is what most of us aspire to, but what does it actually mean and how can we achieve it? These questions have been pondered by philosophers for centuries. Young Australian philosopher Christina Colegate reflects on many aspects of modern life - love, our bodies, friendship, family, home, democracy and compassion. With insights from groundbreaking thinkers and plenty of humour along the way, "Just Between You and Me" takes readers on a journey through Western thought. Drawing on personal experiences, Christina Colegate builds a bridge between philosophical ideas and everyday experiences. All the time, she seeks to answer the question of how we might live deeper, wiser and more enriched lives. 260 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Road to Character, David Brooks
16 David Brooks The Road to Character
Random House 245436 New York 2015 0812983416 / 9780812983418 Softcover Near Fine Condition With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Looking to some of the world's greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade. Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth. 296 pages.

Thai Ways, Denis Segaller
17 Denis Segaller Thai Ways
Silkworm Books 240401 2005 9749575733 / 9789749575734 Softcover Very Good Condition Thai Ways is a delightful collection of almost everything the curious visitor might want to know about Thai customs and beliefs, engagingly explained by a long-time English resident of Thailand. Compiled from a series of articles published in a popular weekly column in the 1970s, the selections remain as informative and readable today as when the author first wrote them. They demystify constructs like the system of royal ranks and the Thai musical scale, and customs such as the Loi Krathong festival and the Wai Khru ceremony. 243 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Lucky Country: Australia In The Sixties, Donald Horne
19 Donald Horne The Lucky Country: Australia In The Sixties
Penguin Books 245515 Australia 1968 Second revised Edition Hardcover Good Condition Good Australia is a lucky country, run mainly by second-rate people who share its luck.' The phrase 'the lucky country' has become part of our lexicon; it's forever being invoked in debates about the Australian way of life, but is all too often misused by those blind to Horne's irony. When it was first published in 1964 The Lucky Country caused a sensation. Horne took Australian society to task for its philistinism, provincialism and dependence. The book was a wake-up call to an unimaginative nation, an indictment of a country mired in mediocrity and manacled to its past. Although it's a study of the confident Australia of the 1960s, the book still remains illuminating and insightful decades later. The Lucky Country is valuable not only as a source of continuing truths and revealing snapshots of the past, but above all as a key to understanding the anxieties and discontents of Australian society today. 238 pages. Dust jacket has rubbing and small closed tears to edges. Dust Jacket price-clipped. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Sociology; Sociology & Culture; Australian.
