Liminality has the potential to be a leading paradigm for understanding transformation in a globalizing world. As a fundamental human experience, liminality transmits cultural practices, codes, rituals, and meanings in situations that fall between defined structures and have uncertain outcomes. Based on case studies of some of the most important crises in history, society, and politics, this volume explores the methodological range and applicability of the concept to a variety of concrete social and political problems.

Breaking Boundaries offers an important and significant alternative to most other developmental reading/writing books by providing instruction, readings, and activities that more closely resemble “college-level” work. Rather than offering one- to two-paragraph readings and worksheet drills, it features longer readings, more varied readings (multi- cultural, multi-disciplinary, multi-genre), specific strategies for becoming stronger readers, direct instruction in the writing process, and an array of post- reading writing assignments that are not solely based on personal experiences. Writing samples (journals and drafts of essays) guide readers through the steps in the writing process--showing clearly how reading, critical thinking, and writing are intertwined. The readings are drawn from non-fiction and fiction, from classic, modern, and contemporary, and include a variety of multicultural and multigender perspectives representing women, men, African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Euro-Americans. They explore seven themes focusing on issues and controversies of contemporary importance: Equal Education for All: Is Education Fair to Everyone? The Power of Language. Defining Literacy: Whose Agenda Hits the Mark? Reading People's Stories: Why Should We Care? Women's Bodies: Women's Lives. Fiction Writers: Do These Stories Reflect or Define Society and Culture? Ways of Telling: Does Gender Shape Reality? A comprehensive chapter provides hands-on activities demystifies the process of using computers to draft essays. For anyone needing basic instruction or remedial work in anticipation of reading and writing successfully at the baccalaureate level.

Breaking Boundaries has as its primary intention just what the title implies: to reevaluate the paradigmatic and often divisive categories set forth by the literary establishment, whether those be cultural, linguistic, literary, academic, political, or sexual. We focus on an already extensive and rich body of literature written by Latina women, yet virtually unrecognized by institutions of power, although, fortunately, there are some exception.

Magdolna Hargittai uses over fifteen years of in-depth conversation with female physicists, chemists, biomedical researchers, and other scientists to form cohesive ideas on the state of the modern female scientist. The compilation, based on sixty conversations, examines unique challenges that women with serious scientific aspirations face. In addition to addressing challenges and the unjustifiable underrepresentation of women at the higher levels of academia, Hargittai takes a balanced approach by discussing how some of the most successful of these women have managed to obtain professional success and personal happiness. Women Scientists portrays scientists from different backgrounds, different geographical regions-eighteen countries from four continents-and leaders from a variety of professional backgrounds, including eight Nobel laureate women. The book is divided into three sections: "Husband and Wife Teams," "Women at the Top," and "In High Positions." Hargittai uses her own experience to introduce her first section on the lives of prominent scientific couples and addresses the joys and disadvantages of husband and wife teams. The second section is a comprehensive exploration of the struggles and triumphs of "women at the top." Hargittai introduces women from countries where relatively little has been written about female scientists. The final section focuses on women scientists involved with science administration and leadership. Hargittai's biographical sketches role models for budding scientists. The book is a much needed account of female presence and influence in the sciences.

The period 1585-1649 was rich in innovative drama which challenged the boundaries between social, political and cultural activities of various kinds. In this book, Molly Smith examines ways in which texts by Renaissance authors reflect, question and influence their society's ideological concerns. In the drama of Kyd, Shakespeare, Beaumont and Fletcher, Webster, Middleton, Massinger and Ford, she identifies the simultaneously serious and playful appropriation of popular cultural practices, an appropriation which is expertly reversed by authorities in the political drama of Charles I's public trial and execution in 1649. This compelling interpretation of Renaissance drama will prove of value to students of literature and social history.

Breaking Boundaries - Beyond Boundaries By Mary Wine Book 1 in the Breaking Boundaries series. In 2254, a fertile woman is worth her weight in platinum. With the future of the human race in question, death is the only sentence handed out to those who plunder Earth's most precious resource. Lee Tanner, commander of the Enforcer outpost responsible for guarding and protecting those women, will be happy to hand out that sentence. Tightening his newest command will eliminate the pirate raids, but it leaves him holding the first recovered captive in years. Strong and fiercely independent, Chenoa awakens the warrior within him, and nothing in the Enforcer's codes helps him deal with the fact that his captive isn't just a witness or a lusted-after commodity. She's a woman. There are forces in nature that never notice the passing of years. The advances in civilization have done little to dampen the primitive yearnings of male and female. But the hand of Fate touches whom she will. Love and the bonding of two souls will never be obedient to the dictates of policy. Lee will discover how far a man will go and how hard he must fight to protect what is his.
