The Conspiracy To Destroy Black Women from the Author: Michael Porter. It has long been argued that women, especially black women, have been relegated to a second-class status in American society, and despite modern advances remain subject to a debilitating discrimination in many areas of life. This book presents a fresh perspective on the many facets of sexism experienced by African American women, addressing such issues as wage disparity, spousal abuse, and the rising rate of AIDS among black women. It also examines the roots of sexism among African American males, including the effect of gangster rap music on perceptions of black women, and offers strategies for change.

Knowledge Of Hiv Transmission And Sexual Behavior Among Zimbabwean Adolescent Females In Atlanta Georgia from the Author: Dr. Loveness Mabhunu. It is universally agreed that HIV/AIDS constitutes one of the most serious threats to human life in our era. The immigration of Zimbabwean people into America plays a major role in the socialization of Zimbabwean adolescents. Zimbabwean adolescents are exposed to the Western culture of sexual socialization, which is different from the African culture. The social bonds and traditions that used to shape Zimbabwean young people’s behavior and help them make the transition to adulthood have weakened in the face of migrating to Western countries. The main problem is the transition and loss of cultural identity that affect Zimbabwean adolescents’ knowledge of HIV/AIDS transmission and sexual behavior.

After Henry from the Author: Joan Didion. Incisive essays on Patty Hearst and Reagan, the Central Park jogger and the Santa Ana winds, from the New York Times–bestselling author of South and West. In these eleven essays covering the national scene from Washington, DC; California; and New York, the acclaimed author of Slouching Towards Bethlehem and The White Album “capture[s] the mood of America” and confirms her reputation as one of our sharpest and most trustworthy cultural observers (The New York Times). Whether dissecting the 1988 presidential campaign, exploring the commercialization of a Hollywood murder, or reporting on the “sideshows” of foreign wars, Joan Didion proves that she is one of the premier essayists of the twentieth century, “an articulate witness to the most stubborn and intractable truths of our time” (Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times Book Review). Highlights include “In the Realm of the Fisher King,” a portrait of the White House under the stewardship of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, two “actors on location;” and “Girl of the Golden West,” a meditation on the Patty Hearst case that draws an unexpected and insightful parallel between the kidnapped heiress and the emigrants who settled California. “Sentimental Journeys” is a deeply felt study of New York media coverage of the brutal rape of a white investment banker in Central Park, a notorious crime that exposed the city’s racial and class fault lines. Dedicated to Henry Robbins, Didion’s friend and editor from 1966 until his death in 1979, After Henry is an indispensable collection of “superior reporting and criticism” from a writer on whom we have relied for more than fifty years “to get the story straight” (Los Angeles Times).

from the Author: Курт Воннеґут. Геніальний схиблений науковець робить приголомшливе відкриття, не переймаючись майбутнім свого творіння… Лід-дев’ять — винахід, страшніший за атомну бомбу. Одна його крихта може знищити все живе… І троє людей використали цю смертоносну речовину на власний розсуд… На перетині добра і зла ідеальний світ справді далекий від ідеалу, а як щодо самоцінності особистості, як щодо відповідальності за скоєне?..

from the Author: Томас Кініллі. Його ім’я відоме усьому світу і вже давно стало називним. Оскар Шиндлер. Людина, яка довела, що можна здійснити справжнє диво — подарувати життя… Дати шанс на порятунок тоді, коли сподіватися вже нема на що… На початку Другої світової німецький підприємець Оскар Шиндлер відкрив у Польщі фабрику, на якій виробляли емальований посуд. І ця фабрика, де працювали євреї з гетто, стала для них немов Ноєвим ковчегом… Коли було ухвалено рішення про знищення краківського гетто, Шиндлеру неймовірними зусиллями вдалося вивезти своїх робітників і захистити їх від жаху табору смерті Аушвіцу. Він урятував майже 1300 євреїв. Більше, ніж будь-хто за всю історію найстрашнішої в історії людства війни…
