Book excerpt: Runkus Black and some of his teammates obtain scholarships and are enrolled at Kingston Metropolitan University (KMU). At KMU, the sporting arrangements are not what they thought it would be, plus the University is not known for its prowess in the intercollegiate football championship. KMU’s Students’ Guild, however, has some influence with football arrangements, but their limited support forces Runkus and his peers to become engaged in activities that senior students normally take on. Surprisingly, Runkus’s old nemesis Kennedy Edward Stephenson III (KES-III)—and his teammates from Castleton Academy are also attending KMU. For the first time, both sets of boys attend the same institution. Overzealous senior football players, and the freshmen vie for a place on the football team. Old rivalries, fraternities, jealousies, politics, seniority, and grudges are hurdles that stand in the way of unity. Underhanded tactics are employed, battles are waged, and sparks begin to fly. How do these issues get resolved?

Book Synopsis Turning Point by : Robert Daniel Tschirgi

Download or read book Turning Point written by Robert Daniel Tschirgi. This book was released on 2007-08-30. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The danger raised by the terrorist threat is real, existential, and vital to the United States. But the attacks on 9/11 have been broadly misunderstood. In assessing the meaning and significance of the war on terror, Tschirgi raises many issues related to the Middle East and American policy toward that area. For example, he debunks the entire exceptionalist approach to the Arab world (the presumption that Arab societies fail to be fathomed by Western social science). While Tschirgi stresses the need for resolving the war on terrorism favorably, he also suggests two broad policy recommendations. First, he argues that while the United States should maintain its firm commitment to Israel's preservation as a Jewish state, it has no corresponding duty to support Israeli expansionism. U.S.-Israeli relations should proceed on this basis and should be informed by a greater American reliance on principles of international law. Second, Tschirgi concludes that an American withdrawal from Iraq must be effected as early as possible. Tschirgi's provocative thesis is that the attacks of 9/11 were not as unique an event as we commonly believe. Rather, they were understandable—though deplorable—human reactions to a combination of factors that fueled the Arab world's marginalization and led to a generalized feeling among the people of that region that the West (and particularly the United States) posed a mortal threat to their identity. Employing three case studies of marginalized violent conflict—Mexico's Zapatista conflict, Egypt's struggle against the Gama'a al-Islamiyya in Upper Egypt, and Nigeria's fight against the Ogoni people in the Niger Delta—Tschirgi demonstrates the dynamics through which traditional peoples have in modern times opted to wage hopeless struggle against objectively more powerful states. The parallels between the dynamics that informed each of these situations and those marking the international Muslim insurgency against the West are striking, as are the significant differences between the two phenomena. The parallels are found in the mechanics of marginalization and resistance. The differences lie, first, in the Muslim insurgency's identification of the West as a total enemy and the struggle with it as having a zero-sum nature and, second, in the modern terrorists' potential access to lethal means of mass destruction. Both the parallels and differences that mark the two phenomena help deepen a real understanding of the meaning of 9/11.

Book Synopsis The Turning Point in the Gospel of Mark by : Gregg S. Morrison

Download or read book The Turning Point in the Gospel of Mark written by Gregg S. Morrison. This book was released on 2014-09-24. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Based on linguistic and thematic links in the narrative, The Turning Point in the Gospel of Mark argues that the twin pericopae of Peter's confession (8:27-38) and the Transfiguration (9:2-13) together function as the turning point of the Gospel and serve in a Janus-like manner enabling the reader to see the author's main focus: the identity of Jesus and the significance of that reality for his disciples. Peter's confession of Jesus as Messiah faces backward toward the Prologue (1:1-13) and functions as a mid-course conclusion. The declaration by God on the mountain faces forward and foreshadows the end-course conclusion (14:61-62; 15:39; Son of God). Jesus, in response, teaches that the Son of Man must suffer and die before being raised from the dead (8:31). Christologically, the images of Messiah, Son of Man, and Son of God converge and present Jesus, the crucified, as king, ushering in the kingdom of God in power (9:1 acting as the key swivel between the twin pericopae). When one is confronted with this Jesus, though there remains something elusive about him and the kingdom of God in the narrative, the only wise decision (after calculating the costs, 8:34-38) is to follow.
