The Pushcart Prize–winning poet’s memoir of his criminal youth and years in prison: a “brave and heartbreaking” tale of triumph over brutal adversity (The Nation). Jimmy Santiago Baca’s “astonishing narrative” of his life before, during, and immediately after the years he spent in the maximum-security prison garnered tremendous critical acclaim. An important chronicle that “affirms the triumph of the human spirit,” it went on to win the prestigious 2001 International Prize (Arizona Daily Star). Long considered one of the best poets in America today, Baca was illiterate at the age of twenty-one when he was sentenced to five years in Florence State Prison for selling drugs in Arizona. This raw, unflinching memoir is the remarkable tale of how he emerged after his years in the penitentiary—much of it spent in isolation—with the ability to read and a passion for writing poetry. “Proof there is always hope in even the most desperate lives.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram “A hell of a book, quite literally. You won’t soon forget it.” —The San Diego U-T “This book will have a permanent place in American letters.” —Jim Harrison, New York Times–bestselling author of A Good Day to Die

Linguists have become increasingly interested in examining how class culture is socially constructed and maintained through spoken language. Julie Lindquist's examination of the linguistic ethnography of a working-class bar in Chicago is an important and original contribution to the field. She examines how regular patrons argue about political issues in order to create a group identity centered around political ideology. She also shows how their political arguments are actually a rhetorical genre, one which creates a delicate balance between group solidarity and individual identity, as well as a tenuous and ambivalent sense of class identity.

A Place to Stand is addressed to those who recognize the need for a strong stand from which to operate in the confusion of contemporary thought. Ours has become an age, says Trueblood, in which people simply do not know what to think. Trueblood is convinced that there is an objective truth about everything. Here, Trueblood explains what Christians believe and why, exploring through each chapter rational Christianity, a center of certitude, the living God, the reality of prayer, and the life everlasting. He is convinced that part of the weakness of the Christian movement in this age has been the relative lack of emphasis upon belief. However good and important service to humanity is, it loses its motivating power when the sustaining beliefs are allowed to wither. A Place to Stand is a classic text that shows it is possible, without contradiction or confusion, to hold a Christian position which is both evangelical and rational.

Two centuries before Christ, the Greek mathematician and inventor Archimedes experimented with the lever. He declared that he could “move the earth” if he had a place to stand somewhere in the cosmos. People need a certain place to stand, a point of reference beyond the self. In this bold critique of the emergent church of postevangelicals, Dr. Grant Richison, well-known Bible expositor (versebyversecommentary.com), draws a line in the sand to prevent further erosion of the certainty that we can stand on the absolute truth of the Bible. In his rejection of relativism, he lights the way for those who would present the gospel with certainty and clarity.

Lord, I do need You each day in every uncertain way. As women in twenty-first century America, we have to face distractions and temptations each and every day. And as the once-solid values of our culture crumble daily beneath us, we grow anxious and begin searching for a safe foundation, and our spirits cry out for familiar footing on secure ground with the only One who can save. In A Place to Stand, Molly A. Berwinkle offers a portrait of women in the Bible, those who also found their feet had suddenly moved to eroding ground. From these standards, we can locate the way to place our lives on the unyielding principles of a tested and tried surface—the Lord Almighty. Find comfort and encouragement in the women who have gone before, and open your eyes to find a place to stand.

First published in 1953, A Place To Stand is set in Budapest in the spring of 1941, Hope - a spoilt but attractive society girl and daughter of a leading American business man - finds herself playing the lead in a dangerous and most unexpected affair of underground intrigue, through the machinations of her journalist fiancé. During the course of her activities she falls in love with a Polish refugee, and at the moment when Germany invades Hungary, she is already deeply involved - both emotionally and politically. Bridge, herself an eye witness of these events, tells in moving and graphic terms the terrible story of Germany's 'protective' invasion; although it is presented in the form of an imaginative episode, the historical significance and accuracy are all too tragically evident. This admirable novel is at once a charming love story in the shadow of fear and disruption, a subtle and intimate portrayal of human beings in a time of crisis, and a most exciting narrative, set against the enchanting background of Budapest.
