The book contains essays on simple but perplexing questions that we come across as we go about living our lives. How do we react to a situation when we fail to practice what we preach? Why do we occasionally feel joy in the misfortune of others and then feel guilty about it? Is religion a difficult proposition in the modern world? We are shaken when heroes worshipped by many as role models get convicted on crimes done in secret. The book makes an attempt to search for answers to such questions by going through authoritative sources of research done by eminent scholars with the intention to disseminate such thoughts to those who are assailed by similar questions and help them to come to their own conclusions. The book has parts consisting of musings, reminiscences, satire, and short stories conveying messages that are considered important as we face problems in our daily existence.

Border Theory was first published in 1997. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Challenging the prevailing assumption that border studies occurs only in "the borderlands" where Mexico and the United States meet, the authors gathered in this volume examine the multiple borders that define the United States and the Americas, including the Mason-Dixon line, the U.S.- Canadian border, the shifting boundaries of urban diasporas, and the colonization and confinement of American Indians. The texts assembled here examine the way border studies beckons us to rethink all objects of study and intellectual disciplines as versions of a border problematic. These writers-drawn from anthropology, history, and language studies-critique the terrain, limits, and possibilities of border theory. They examine, among other topics, the "soft" or "friendly" borders produced by ethnic studies, antiassimilationist or "difference" multiculturalisms, liberal anthropologies, and benevolent nationalisms. Referring to a range of theory (anthropological, sociological, feminist, Marxist, European postmodernist and poststructuralist, postcolonial, and ethnohistorical), the authors trace the genealogical and logical links between these discourses and border studies. A timely critique of a field just now revealing its explosive potential, this volume maps the intellectual topography of border theory and challenges the epistemological and political foundations of border studies. Contributors are Russ Castronovo, Elaine K. Chang, Louis Kaplan, Alejandro Lugo, Benjamin Alire Sáenz, and Patricia Seed. Scott Michaelsen is assistant professor of English at Michigan State University. David E. Johnson is lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Ye Ole Thinker Manual may help you live longer, improve your sex life, make you more independent, give you power and happiness, put self-respect, success, and truth back into your life, give you irreplaceable knowledge and tell you what's for supper! As a matter of fact, no matter what you want or need; you're more likely to get it if you're healthy. All Thinker lives are driven by the condition of their model. You cannot imagine what a powerful determinant health is, until you lose it. You may feel daring, carefree or even angry when you say "I don't care if what I eat is unhealthy; I have to die from something anyway." Are you willing to run around to the other side of that thought and look at it from a different angle? All Thinkers are destined to die at some point. But why spend the rest of your short life destroying the vehicle in which you travel? Healing is not rare. It happens every day. It's a fact that you create your own health (or lack of it) every day. Because we Thinkers, despite our delusions of grandeur, are vessels full of nothing but water, electricity, math, chemistry and bugs. You feel the way you feel because of them. Fortunately, you can control your water, electricity, math, chemistry and bugs by what you eat, drink, breathe, and think. If you want to make your life better in any way; eat, drink, breathe and think in better ways. Maybe you don't need to be afraid of what's going on inside of your model any more. Maybe it's time you peeked behind your walls of misconceptions, ignorance and stubbornness. Maybe it isn't really cute, popular or smart to ignore the incredible machine that allows you to live. Maybe it's time to grow up and stopping pleasuring yourself to death with food. Maybe it's time to change your deadly thoughts and habits. Maybe your young will thrive and excel when they are fed only nutrient-dense foods. Maybe the magic of food will work for you. Ye Ole Thinker Manual introduces you to The 100 Perfect Foods which will keep your model running like a well-oiled machine and help you in hundreds of ways without causing harm. The 100 Perfect Foods can be purchased from just 6-8 aisles in your local grocery store, are cheaper than unhealthy foods, and can easily be used to create thousands of yummy recipes. No dieting! No measuring! No calorie counting! No meetings! No weighing (you or the food)! No recipes! Ye Ole Thinker Manual will introduce you to the story of Lilly the Liver. She's brave, funny and fiercely dedicated. She embarks on a journey, alone and vulnerable, to save herself and her friends from certain death! On this journey, Lilly grabs the opportunity to make a big difference and ends up discovering a whole new world. You just will not believe the tasks she's capable of performing! You're gonna want her on your side! Ye Ole Thinker Manual proudly presents The Uncle Carb Radio Program hosted by Uncle Carb; that cantankerous and funny guy who bullies you into changing your deadly habits! He tells it like it is, gives you the information you need to save yourself and makes you chuckle and moan. In his live radio program, he talks with interesting characters such as Bulky Middleton, Husky Muffintop and Skip Breakfast! Join Uncle Carb as he wades through acid, fungi and stress hormones, at least! Ye Ole Thinker Manual gives you the confidence to believe in your own healing. There are no short cuts. It will require practice, patience and pondering. If you're interested in saving your own race; you'll have to start with yourself. It's tempting to look for someone else to save. And it might make you feel good or heroic. But it won't save you from a lack of self-interest. Save yourself! Live healthy every day. Or at least die tryin'.
