An explanation of how Peruvian migrants maintain meaningful social relations across borders. In this engaging volume, Ulla D. Berg examines the conditions under which Peruvians of rural and working-class origins leave the central highlands to migrate to the United States. Migrants often create new portrayals of themselves to overcome the class and racial biases that they had faced in their home country, as well as to control the images they share of themselves with others back home. Migrant videos, for example, which document migrants’ lives for family back home, are often sanitized to avoid causing worry. By exploring the ways in which migration is mediated between the Peruvian Andes and the United States, this book makes a major contribution to understanding technology’s role in fostering new forms of migrant sociality and subjectivity. It focuses on the forms of sociality and belonging that these mediations enable, adding to important anthropological debates about affect, subjectivity, and sociality in today’s mobile world. It also makes significant contributions to studies of inequality in Latin America, showcasing the intersection of transnational mobility with structures and processes of exclusion in both national and global contexts. A key resource for understanding the experiences of racialized and indigenous migrant populations, Mobile Selves demonstrates the critical role that ethnography can play in transdisciplinary migration studies and exemplifies what comparative migration studies stand to gain from anthropological analysis and ethnographic methodologies.

Annotation A scholar gentleman in the old style; a northern non-conforming radical; an academic steeped in Oxford traditions; a late-20th century media personality; one of the most outstanding historians of his age: A.J.P. Taylor was all these things. He wrote about traditional historical subjects in a traditional manner and took narrative history to new heights and was equally at home with a critical academic, as with a vast popular, audience. C.J. Wrigley's new biographical study includes fascinating and hitherto unknown details of Taylor's privileged and cosseted childhood, the effect of his close but combative and stimulating family, the dissenting and nonconformist tradition, and his time as a teacher, broadcaster journalist and historian.

It is the summer of 1958, and life in the small Texas community of Graham Camp should be simple and carefree. But not for twelve-year-old Sammie Tucker. Sammie has plenty of questions about her mother's "nerve" problems. About shock treatments. About whether her mother loves her. When her mother commits suicide and a not-so-favorite aunt arrives, Sammie has to choose who to trust with her deepest fears: Her best friend who has an opinion about everything, the mysterious kid from California whose own troubles plague him, or her round-faced neighbor with gentle advice and strong shoulders to cry on. Then there's the elderly widower who seems nice but has his own dark past. Trusting is one thing, but accepting the truth may be the hardest thing Sammie has ever done.

Six years ago my mother requested that I should write a story about how things were when we all were young. The experiences we had and endured along the way while making memories that would last a lifetime. The things that we often sat around talking about on so many occasions and would laugh so hard we would be in tears. My mother felt that other people would enjoy some of our fondest memories from my childhood as she did her best to raise her children as a single parent most of the time. My family felt it was a blessing to be able to look back and laugh about it all, what my mother referred to as the "good old days". There are some stories you would not believe, but they a true some are funny and some are sad.

ABOUT THE BOOK This is a fascinating love story, steeped in the spiritual commitment and abiding conviction of two partners who obeyed the Lord by stepping out in faith to answer His call. Their story begins in a small Pennsylvanian coal region town and a poor, working farm in Georgia and continues to their extraordinary meeting, journey into love and move to ministry in Europe and the United States. Though they felt they were unlikely prospects for the service to which they were called, this story of their live clearly illustrates that when God chooses the weak, He receives the glory. ENDORSEMENTS "This is the autobiography of a good and decent man. It ranges from Bill Kinzie's Huck Finn childhood in Pennsylvania and his finding faith and a vocation through a lifetime of Christian missionary activity beside a lovely and effervescent wife. It is a truly touching and heart-rending love story." Charles Monaghan, former editor of the Washington Post Book World. Readers will find herein a personal story of one man's dedication to the leading of his Savior. In his Call to Ministry Bill Kinzie takes us out of ourselves and into the Mission Field where he gave his life, with Evelyn his 'light' to whatever it was God needed of him next. As the experiences and challenges mount, it is only through prayer that this man of mission is able to fulfill his passion for Christ. No task is too humble, no sorrow too great. His help comes from God. Boundless energy leaps from these pages and causes one to reflect on what yet is God calling us to accomplish. Rev. Joanne Montgomery Link
