📒Radical ✍ David Platt
📝Radical Book Synopsis : WHAT IS JESUS WORTH TO YOU? It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily... BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU? In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus. Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment -- a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring. (From the 2010 edition)"

📒The Rise And Fall Of California S Radical Prison Movement ✍ Eric Cummins
📝The Rise and Fall of California s Radical Prison Movement Book Synopsis : This is a history of the California prison movement from 1950 to 1980, focusing on the San Francisco Bay Area's San Quentin State Prison and highlighting the role that prison reading and writing played in the creation of radical inmate ideology in those years. The book begins with the Caryl Chessman years (1948-60) and closes with the trial of the San Quentin Six (1975-76) and the passage of California's Determinate Sentencing Law (1977). This was an extraordinary era in the California prisons, one that saw the emergence of a highly developed radical convict resistance movement inside prison walls. This inmate groundswell was fueled at times by remarkable individual prisoners, at other times by groups like the Black Muslims or the San Quentin chapter of the Black Panther Party. But most often resistance grew from much wider sources and in quiet corners: from dozens of political study groups throughout the prison; from an underground San Quentin newspaper; and from covert attempts to organize a prisoners' union. The book traces the rise and fall of the prisoners' movement, ending with the inevitably bloody confrontation between prisoners and the state and the subsequent prison administration crackdown. The author examines the efforts of prison staff to augment other methods of inmate management by attempting to modify convict ideology by means of "bibliotherapy" and communication control, and describes convict resistance to these attempts as control. He also discusses how Bay Area political activists became intensely involved in San Quentin and how such writings as Chessman's Cell 2455, Cleaver's Soul on Ice, and Jackson's Soledad Brother reached far beyond prison walls to influence opinion, events, and policy.
📒Radical Trust ✍ J. Healey
📝Radical Trust Book Synopsis : Radical Trust produces results "Healey brings to the forefront the importance of trust to business effectiveness in a new and fresh way. It takes the alignment of 'what we do,' 'what we say,' and 'who we are' to build trust with others. Business relationships founded on trust may be the single biggest employee retention tool available. Healey shows us how to build those kinds of relationships. Any leader would benefit from the insights he shares in Radical Trust." -Doug McMillon, President and CEO, Sam's Club "Healey is right on target. His book is a clear explanation of how instilling loyalty in a company becomes the differentiator in building an extraordinary culture. Having the chance to experience the loyalty factor from both sides at CiCi's Pizza, mentored by Joe Croce (featured in this book) as his employee and now in my current role as President, I know that the head of any organization will learn great lessons from Healey's work." -Craig Moore, President, CiCi's Pizza "Healey shows an organization how to set itself apart with service excellence, financial success, and employee loyalty. For progressive leaders who seek a comprehensive how-to, this book provides not only the framework, but also the proof that it works. Even after twenty years of experience, I learned things that will provide invaluable assistance for many more to come." -Loriann Putzier, Principal and COO, IntegraCare Corporation "Radical Trust is not a book of theory, but a hands-on, how-to book of practical ideas to help leaders establish radical trust that will change their relationships, their workplaces, and ultimately, their lives. Buy this book if you want to be a long-lived, successful, and well-loved leader." -Barbara A. Glanz, author of Handle with CARE: Motivating and Retaining Employees and coauthor of The Simple Truths of Service "Healey's model is an invaluable tool for leaders who want to harness the forward momentum that trust can bring to an organization.

📒Radical Information Literacy ✍ Andrew Whitworth
📝Radical Information Literacy Book Synopsis : What would a synthetic theory of Digital, Media and Information Literacy (DMIL) look like? Radical Information Literacy presents, for the first time, a theory of DMIL that synthesises the diversity of perspectives and positions on DMIL, both in the classroom and the workplace, and within the informal learning processes of society. This title is based on original analysis of how decisions are made about the relevance of information and the other resources used in learning, showing how society has privileged objective approaches (used in rule-based decision making) to the detriment of subjective and intersubjective perspectives which promote individual and community contexts. The book goes on to analyse the academic and popular DMIL literature, showing how the field may have been, consciously or unwittingly, complicit in the ‘objectification’ of learning and the disempowerment of individuals and communities. Alternative ways of conceiving the subject are then presented, towards a reversal of these trends. Synthesises key theorists of digital, media and information literacy and information behaviour Includes the field of ‘community informatics’ Conducts a bibliometric analysis of a broad spectrum of writings on digital, media and information literacy, analysing the connections between them and the frames of DMIL within which they are located

📒Radical ✍ Mel Fiske
📝Radical Book Synopsis : Radicalized after a 15,000 mile journey through America during the Great Depression, Mel Fiske recounts his unusual stints as labor organizer and worker in steel mills, railroad roundhouses, freight-car assemblies, and tire factories--jobs that have since disappeared. He worked for newspapers in various states, once serving as correspondent for the Daily Worker in Washington, D.C., where he covered the rise of the Truman-McCarthy-Hoover Red Hunt that roiled our country through the Fifties. Fiske gives the reader his grunt's eye-view of life as a Marine in the Pacific—particularly the bloody but little-remembered battle for Peleliu. He tells of his family life in the Bronx and Brooklyn, when a subway ride or an ice cream cone cost a nickel, and when his father prospered as a printer during the Depression by schmearing, or giving bribes. With blunt honesty and wryness, he recalls his first love and marriage, which ended with a Dear John letter as World War II atomized to its conclusion. This book is not simply a memoir, but a look at twentieth-century America from the point of view of a man who, galvanized by the injustices he both witnessed and experienced, struck out in his own radical way.
📒Radical Relevance ✍ Laura Gray-Rosendale
📝Radical Relevance Book Synopsis : In an effort to rethink the left, this interdisciplinary collection weaves together some of today’s most powerful voices in contemporary left critical thought as they examine the fragmentation of American movements for social change, evaluate what critical scholarship might contribute to the task of renewing (or creating) a more unified and efficacious left, and explore the left’s possibly inadequate dealings with many marginalized groups. Representing a diverse range of theoretical perspectives within several “textual” disciplines, the essays assess historical, practical, or speculative models for a “whole left”—a left constituted by a broad range of complexly interwoven interests, including issues of class, environment, gender, sexuality, disability, race, and ethnicity. The book exemplifies the struggles of scholars to work toward a more shared agenda for social change.
📒Radical Art ✍ Helen Langa
📝Radical Art Book Synopsis : "Helen Langa's compelling study of 1930s social viewpoint prints offers a fresh look at the relationship between the decade's visual culture and its social and political bases. The author illuminates the artists' struggles with conflicting demands-how to advocate revolution within a defense of democracy, and how to engage the social world using aesthetic criteria that advocated distance from it. Her engaging account of these contradictions is a major achievement."--Ellen Wiley Todd, author of "The "New Woman" Revised: Painting and Gender Politics on Fourteenth Street" "Privileging 1930s prints, and contextualizing their political, social, cultural, and economic dimensions more completely than any previous book on the subject, Helen Langa's "Radical Art" is a welcome addition to studies of American art during the Great Depression. Her astute analysis of social viewpoint styles and themes is a significant contribution. Historically detailed and persuasively argued, this book will be an indispensable source for students and scholars of twentieth-century American art."--Erika Doss, author of "Twentieth-Century American Art" "This beautifully nuanced study reaffirms the primacy of politically engaged printmaking in the 1930s. Langa is attentive to the ways artists invented imagery to address aesthetic dilemmas as well as social ones, with the goal, always, of raising the public's consciousness of labor, gender, and racial inequities. Her research is superb and her sensitivity to a wide range of printmaker's voices, male and female, white and black, is exemplary."--Wanda M. Corn, author of "The Great American Thing: Modern Art and National Identity, 1915-1935" ""Radical Art "is a landmark study, both in the history of printmaking and in the history of American art of the thirties. There is no better explicator of the graphic arts of this era and their cultural context than Helen Langa. Her thoroughly researched and compellingly written volume is a major scholarly contribution."--Betsy Fahlman, author of "John Ferguson Weir: The Labor of Art"

📒Radical Secularization ✍ Stijn LatrÃ©
📝Radical Secularization Book Synopsis : What does it mean for a society to be secular? Answering this question from a philosophical angle, Radical Secularization? delves into the philosophical presuppositions of secularization. Which cultural evolutions made secularization possible? International scholars from different disciplines assess the answers given by many leading philosophers such as, among others, LÃ¶with, Blumenberg and Habermas (Germany), Gauchet and Nancy (France), Taylor and Bellah (North America). They examine the theory that secularization cannot only be regarded as a cultural change that was forced upon religion from an external source (e.g. science), but should also be considered as a phenomenon triggered by motives internal to religion. If religions are indeed capable of inner transformations, the question arises whether religions can persist in the secular societies they inadvertently helped to bring about, and how secular societies may accommodate religion.

📒Jesus The Radical ✍ R. T. France
📝Jesus the Radical Book Synopsis : Some sought his death. Others left everything to follow him. Who was this Jesus, this son of a carpenter turned wandering teacher? Why did he provoke such extreme reactions? And why does he still do so today, more than two thousand years after his death? Jesus the Radical highlights the impact of Jesus against the backdrop of life in first-century Judea, with its customs, its Messianic hopes, its multi-faceted Judaism and its Roman overlords.

📒A Radical Line ✍ Thai Jones
📝A Radical Line Book Synopsis : In this elegant family history, journalist Thai Jones traces the past century of American radical politics through the extraordinary exploits of his own family. Born in the late 1970s to fugitive leaders of the Weather Underground and grandson of Communists, spiritual pacifists, and civil rights agitators, Jones grew up an heir to an American tradition of resistance. Yet rather than partake of it, he took it upon himself to document it. The result is a book of extraordinary reporting and narrative. The dramatic saga of A Radical Line begins in 1913, when Jones's maternal grandmother was born, and ends in 1981, when a score of heavily armed government agents from the Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force stormed into four-year-old Thai's home and took his parents away in handcuffs. In between, Jones takes us on a journey from the turn-of-the-century western frontier to the tenements of melting-pot Brooklyn, through the Great Depression, the era of McCarthyism, and the Age of Aquarius. Jones's paternal grandfather, Albert Jones, committed himself to pacifism during the 1930s and refused to fight in World War II. The author's maternal grandfather, Arthur Stein, was a member of the Communist Party during the 1950s and refused to collaborate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. His maternal grandmother, Annie Stein, worked closely with civil rights legends Mary Church Terrell and Ella Baker to desegregate institutions in Washington, D.C., and New York City. His father, Jeff Jones, joined the violent Weathermen and led hundreds of screaming hippies through the streets of Chicago to clash with police during the Days of Rage in 1969. Then Jeff Jones disappeared and spent the next eleven years eluding the FBI's massive manhunt. Thai Jones spent the first years of his life on the run with his parents. Beyond the politics, this is the story of a family whose lives were filled with love honored and betrayed, tragic deaths, painful blunders, narrow escapes, and hope-filled births. There is the drama of a pacifist father who must reconcile with a bomb-throwing son and a Communist mother whose daughter refuses to accept the lessons she has learned in a life as an organizer. There are parents and children who can never meet or, when they do, must use the ruses and subterfuge of criminals to steal a hug and a hello. Beautifully written and sweeping in its scope, A Radical Line is nothing less than a history of the twentieth century and of one American family who lived to shake it up.
📒Radical Education Rle Edu K ✍ Robin Barrow
📝Radical Education RLE Edu K Book Synopsis : This volume is a comprehensive critique of the radical tradition in educational theory. It traces the development of the key ideas in radical literature from Rousseau to the present day. Two opening chapters set Rousseau’s educational views and arguments in their political perspective, and subject them to an extended critical treatment. Subsequent chapters provide detailed analyses and examination of the ideas of A S Neill, Paul Goodman, Ivan Illich and Everett Reimer, Charles Weingartner and Neil Postman. Each author is treated separately but certain common themes and ideas are extracted and considered without reference to any particular author. Amongst others, the concepts of nature, learning, hidden curriculum and the relativity of knowledge are examined; at the same time broader arguments about the degree and nature of freedom that should be provided to children, deschooling and assessment are pursued.
📒Enriching The Sociological Imagination ✍ Rhonda F. Levine
📝Enriching the Sociological Imagination Book Synopsis : Since the 1960s, radical sociology has had far more influence on mainstream sociology than many observers imagine. This book pairs seminal articles with new reflective essays written by the founders of progressive sociology, including Fred Block, Edna Bonacich, Samuel Bowles, Herbert Gintis, Val Burris, G. William Domhoff, Richard Flacks, Harvey Molotch, Goran Therborn, and Erik Olin Wright. The book highlights the wider impact of radical sociology and shows how the work of these and other writers has continued to influence sociology's continuing interest in capitalism, class, race, gender, power, and progressive social change. It also describes future directions for a critical sociology relevant to a multicultural and global world.
📒Public Sex ✍ Patrick Califia
📝Public Sex Book Synopsis : A chronicle of the radical sex movement in the United States covers sexual practices, gay and lesbian activism, feminism, censorship, and other important issues. Original.
📒The Radical In Performance ✍ Baz Kershaw
📝The Radical in Performance Book Synopsis : The Radical in Performance investigates the crisis in contemporary theatre, and celebrates the subversive in performance. It is the first full-length study to explore the link between a western theatre which, says Kershaw, is largely outdated and the blossoming of postmodern performance, much of which has a genuinely radical edge. In staying focused on the period between Brecht and Baudrillard, modernity and postmodernism, Baz Kershaw identifies crucial resources for the revitalisation of the radical across a wide spectrum of cultural practices. This is a timely, necessary and rigorous book. It will be a compelling read for anyone searching for a critical catalyst for new ways of viewing and practising cultural politics.
📒Radical Fashion ✍ Claire Wilcox
📝Radical Fashion Book Synopsis : Radical Fashion looks at the three main trends which are currently dominating international fashion
