A Mother's Perfect Hope (English Edition)
"Mothers are endowed by their Creator with extraordinary powers that especially suit them for their high and holy role of bearing and nurturing children." —Dieter F. Uchtdorf, First Presidency Message, Ensign, January 2014
Mothers, you can make it! Even during the darkest days, when you are beset by self-doubt and criticism, let a strong thread of hope weave its way through your daily life. In this Mother’s Day booklet, David J. Ridges helps mothers realize their divine role of nurturing hope in themselves and their children. Having a “perfect brightness of hope” means having confidence while working through imperfections, not after you have worked through them. This booklet will help you get through motherhood while enjoying the journey!"
The Translator in the Text: On Reading Russian Literature in English
What does it mean to read one nation's literature in another language? The considerable popularity of Russian literature in the English-speaking world rests almost entirely upon translations. In The Translator and the Text, Rachel May analyzes Russian literature in English translation, seeing it less as a substitute for the original works than as a subset of English literature, with its own cultural, stylistic, and narrative traditions.
Fifty Years of the Battle of Algiers: Past As Prologue
The Battle of Algiers, a 1966 film that poetically captures Algerian resistance to French colonial occupation, is widely considered one of the greatest political films of all time. With an artistic defiance that matched the boldness of the anticolonial struggles of the time, it was embraced across the political spectrum--from leftist groups like the Black Panther Party and the Palestine Liberation Organization to right-wing juntas in the 1970s and later, the Pentagon in 2003. With a philosophical nod to Frantz Fanon, Sohail Daulatzai demonstrates that tracing the film's afterlife reveals a larger story about how dreams of freedom were shared and crushed in the fifty years since its release. As the War on Terror expands and the "threat" of the Muslim looms, The Battle of Algiers is more than an artifact of the past--it's a prophetic testament to the present and a cautionary tale of an imperial future, as perpetual war has been declared on permanent unrest.
