Despite its enormous wealth, the United States leads the industrialized world in poverty. One Nation, Underprivileged unravels this disturbing paradox by offering a unique and radically different understanding of American poverty. It debunks many of our most common myths about the poor, while at the same time provides a powerful new framework for addressing this enormous social and economic problem. Mark Robert Rank vividly shows that the fundamental causes of poverty are to be found in our economic structure and political policy failures, rather than individual shortcomings or attitudes. He establishes for the first time that a significant percentage of Americans will experience poverty during their adult lifetimes, and firmly demonstrates that poverty is an issue of vital national concern. Ultimately, Rank provides us with a new paradigm for understanding poverty, and outlines an innovative set of strategies that will reduce American poverty. One Nation, Underprivileged represents a profound starting point for rekindling a national focus upon Americas most vexing social and economic problem.

This book covers all of that, while incorporating many chapters beyond that topic. The hope is a pushback of mischiefs, a healing, a curative force which goes viral, rather than the virility of evil and abuse growing to encompass more and more of the world. A book that has been carefully designed & crafted to challenge any reader, a challenge for tolerance and a challenge towards motivation to fix and properly govern oneself in a new and novel way, as the universe falls m into the last day Bible style. Prepare to be shocked, horrified, and cringed like never before. Enter the arena of these pages; a contest is afoot and lively if one does. When taken in its full context, the words herein cannot be defeated?

What if the sanctification of war and contempt for women are both grounded in a fear that breeds hostility, and a hostility that rationalizes conquest? The anti-Gospel Christian history of war-loving and women-hating are not merely similar but two aspects of the same dynamic, argues Stan Goff, in an "autobiography" that spans millennia. Borderline is the historical and conceptual autobiography of a former career army veteran transformed by Jesus into a passionate advocate for nonviolence, written by a man who narrates his conversion to Christianity through feminism.

In this landmark effort to understand African American people in the New World, Gunnar Myrdal provides deep insight into the contradictions of American democracy as well as a study of a people within a people. The title of the book, An American Dilemma, refers to the moral contradiction of a nation torn between allegiance to its highest ideals and awareness of the base realities of racial discrimination. The touchstone of this classic is the jarring discrepancy between the American creed of respect for the inalienable rights to freedom, justice, and opportunity for all and the pervasive violations of the dignity of blacks. The appendices are a gold mine of information, theory, and methodology. Indeed, two of the appendices were issued as a separate work given their importance for systematic theory in social research. The new introduction by Sissela Bok offers a remarkably intimate yet rigorously objective appraisal of Myrdal-a social scientist who wanted to see himself as an analytic intellectual, yet had an unbending desire to bring about change. An American Dilemma is testimonial to the man as well as the ideas he espoused. When It first appeared An American Dilemma was called "the most penetrating and important book on contemporary American civilizations by Robert S. Lynd; "One of the best political commentaries on American life that has ever been written" in The American Political Science Review; and a book with "a novelty and a courage seldom found in American discussions either of our total society or of the part which the Negro plays in it" in The American Sociological Review. It is a foundation work for all those concerned with the history and current status of race relations in the United States.

Borderline Personality Disorder - Learn PROVEN Steps And Strategies On How To Live, And THRIVE with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)Borderline Personality Disorder is a commonly misunderstood phenomenon that many people battle with on a daily basis. The condition itself is now classified as one in which patients have a range of different levels of mental illness. They are not schizophrenic or delusion but generally have less emotional control than those who are considered mentally and emotionally healthy. Borderline, in this sense, means on a strange (often uncomfortable) border between mental and emotional stability and more serious mental illness. Misconceptions include the belief that BPD equals dangerous physical violence (the “Bunny Boiler” misconception). In fact, any danger is usually to the self, rather than others. BPD sufferers experience emotions far more intensely than the rest of the population. In many senses, this is no bad thing but the lack of control of these emotions is where BPD patients risk self-harm, destructive behaviors and problematic relationship issues with others.This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to live with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Starting with an overview of the condition – and its history – the book takes a practical approach to BPD and how to manage the condition on a daily basis. In two parts, the book examines how to develop skills to manage BPD and then examines exercises and tools for doing so. Practical, common-sense and simple to understand, this book offers an easy to follow approach for those with BPD and their friends and families.Here Is A Sneak Peak Of What You Will Learn What Is Borderline Personality Disorder?
