Thirteen year old Alexander thinks he's got the world figured out. He's entirely wrong. To say his fears of middle school are over the top would be an huge understatement. He’s sure that bullies are lurking around every corner. He’s certain that wedgies, swirlies and pantsings are just waiting to happen. He lives every day as if he’s prey in a sea of predators. Now, he’s convinced that an evil bully plot is unfolding – and he has a pretty good idea who’s responsible. Alexander’s friends think he’s crazy, and the bullies pretend to be innocent, but Alexander isn’t fooled. It’s time to take action and stand up for what’s right - but what if he’s wrong? He has the idea of avoiding trouble down to a science. In fact, he’s even created a smartphone app, BullyTrack, to help other kids avoid bullies, too. He knows just when to pass through the school gate in the morning (7:54 am), how to move through the hallways (fast!) and even how to eat (no condiments!). He can identify bullies anywhere he looks, just from their haircut or how they dress. He can spot “bully swagger” a mile away. When Melvin, a boy in his social studies class, says he wants to talk to him after school, Alexander is convinced that “talk” doesn’t mean talk. He puts BullyTrack in crisis mode, and works even harder to keep off the bully radar - evading Melvin at all costs. Then, inspired by a classroom assignment to face his fears, Alexander changes his mind and declares to everyone that he’s standing up to Melvin and every suspected bully in school. He transforms from being nearly invisible to unavoidable. He believes he’s heading for an inspiring victory. He’s totally wrong.

Life At The Bottom Of Babylonian Society

Life at the Bottom of Babylonian Society is a study of the population dynamics, family structure, and legal status of publicly-controlled servile workers in Kassite Babylonia. It compares some of the demographic aspects proper to this group with other intensively studied past populations, such as Roman Egypt, Medieval Tuscany, and American slave plantations. It suggests that families, especially those headed by single mothers, acted as a counter measure against population reduction (flight and death) and as a means for the state to control this labor force. The work marks a step forward in the use of quantitative measures in conjunction with cuneiform sources to achieve a better understanding of the social and economic forces that affected ancient Near Eastern populations.

Life As A Dalit

Life as a Dalit looks at caste society from the point of view of the Dalits, focusing on their worldview, emotions, and critical appraisal of their own position and of the higher groups. It is a volume based on the critical perspectives provided by scholars who have turned around the more acclaimed and accepted theories of caste society privileging the Brahmanical and textual interpretations of caste. It shows that those at the bottom have their own interpretations and follow a rationality that is tutored by their own life conditions and not what is fed to them from the top. These views from the bottom are indicative of the way in which the oppressed live their lives, make critical judgments, and also stage protests, both symbolic and based on real violence against the oppressive system. The focus is more experiential and based on ground-level data-based chapters. It foregrounds the fact that history is created from the bottom of society as well as from the top and those at the bottom are their own agents and well aware of their subject positions.

Nobody is immune to disappointment. Unfortunately, at some point all of us will face that horrific moment when the bottom completely drops out of out of our life, leaving us broken, devastated, and desperately searching for God’s grace. Pastor and theologian Robert Bugh has experienced unthinkable pain and disappointment firsthand, having lost both his wife and his best friend to cancer within a year and a half of each other. Though devastating, Bugh’s tragedy also brought him into a stronger, deeper relationship with God. When the Bottom Drops Out chronicles Rob’s journey from loss to restoration and shows readers how to find and hold tightly to Christ through even the most painful episodes of life. Bugh’s story is proof positive that while pain and disappointment are an unavoidable part of life, God is nonetheless faithful, holding us close at all times and in all circumstances.
