When it came to college acceptance for his first-born child, Hank Herman-an average Dad with average hopes and dreams for his son's college career-imagined he could resist the urge to meddle, that he could allow his son to make decisions for himself. Feeling slightly smug and superior to the good parents he'd seen go berserk before, he vowed not to become controlling and obsessed.Flash-forward to the 2' x 3' "war board" Herman has created to organize and rate the 36 colleges or universities he's selected as "suitable" for his son. Note the lengths to which he goes to "market" his candidate/son as a scholar and an athlete. See the sports scrapbook he has naively constructed for the coaches who now, alas, only accept video clips. Funny, self-deprecating, and all-too-familiar to today's parents, Accept My Kid, Please! details one good father's battle with his worst side. A book for parents looking ahead to or back at their child's college application process, it is an amusingly accurate cautionary tale.

Here is the first book written specifically for men who date while answering to a higher authority: their children. As a single father, you’re ready to begin dating again. But are your kids ready? In this much-needed guide, relationship expert Ellie Slott Fisher comes to the rescue with no-nonsense, no-judgments advice on everything from how to ask a woman out to navigating the potential minefield of overnight dates. Single dads are as nervous as single moms about merging their parental responsibilities with their social lives, but they often don’t have intimate friendships in which to share their concerns. Drawing on her own experience as a single parent, interviews and surveys she conducted with more than a hundred single fathers and their children, and the advice of family therapist Dr. Paul Halpern, Fisher gives the lowdown on a range of tricky topics, including: •When do I introduce my kids to the woman I’m dating? •What if they don’t like her? •Is it acceptable to date someone closer to my child’s age than my own? •Are sleepovers okay when my kids—or her kids—are home? •How do I give my children the reassurance they need while pursuing a social life of my own? Plus, how to avoid one of the biggest dating pitfalls: mistaking lust for love. From dealing with your ex-spouse to protecting your children’s inheritance, and many issues in-between, Fisher gives single fathers the tools they need to be both sexy suitors and devoted dads. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This is the definitive work on the Guyana tragedy when on November 18, 1978, one thousand members of the People’s Temple cult killed themselves in a Guyana jungle by drinking poison-laced Kool-Aid. Through the Freedom of Information Act, the author obtained more than 800 hours of tape recordings made in the jungle. Reston chronicles the descent into madness of the cult leader, the Reverend Jim Jones. "Reston's eye is novelistic....His larger purpose is to make the terribly irrational somehow understandable....He does so with the good judgment of a writer willing to avoid certain faddish modes of analysis." —Robert Coles, Washington Post Book Review

This in-depth study on the realm of death presents a message of hope held by the first generation of Christians and the early church. Using Scripture, patristic tradition, early Christian poetry, and liturgical texts, Archbishop Hilarion explores the mysterious and enigmatic event of Christ'真s descent into Hades and its consequences for the human race. Insisting that Christ entered Sheol as Conqueror and not as victim, the author depicts the Lord'真s descent as an event of cosmic significance opening the path to universal salvation. He also reveals Hades as a place of divine presence, a place where the spiritual fate of a person may still change. Reminding readers that self-will remains the only hindrance to life in Christ, he presents the gospel message anew, even in the shadow of death.

This is an ethnographic study of an inner city college spanning two decades after the institution of open admission in 1970. Its students are predominantly African-American and Hispanic, though increasing numbers come from countries throughout the developing world. These first generation college students, many of them beyond customary college age, come to school encumbered with the burdens of poverty, minority status, and inadequate early schooling. Their teachers in 1990 recall with nostalgia and anguish the metamorphosis of the college during the decades of the 1970s and the 1980s. This book deals directly with the most crucial policy issue confronting the community college today: what is to be its mission. As the latest entrant to higher education, the community college now claims one-half of all new matriculants and most minorities. An evaluation of its triumphs and failures is in order.
