Our Wealth Is Loving Each Other explores the fluid and context-bound nature of cultural and personal identity among indigenous Fijians. National identity in Fiji often emphasizes a romantic, premodern tradition based on a chiefly hierarchy contrasted to the "individualistic" cultures of Westerners and of Indo-Fijians. But indigenous Fijian villagers are generally more concerned with defining their identity vis-a-vis other community members, urban and overseas relatives, and other regions of the country. When people craft self-accounts to justify their position within the indigenous Fijian community, they question and redefine both tradition and modernity. Modernity on the margins is an experience of anxiety-provoking contradictions between competing ideologies-that of international ideologies versus local experiences. indigenous Fijians have been exposed to global ideas and government programs extolling the virtues of "premodern" communities that place communal good and time-honored tradition over individual gain. But other waves of policy and rhetoric have stressed individual achievement and the need to "shake" individuals out of community bonds to foster economic development. Individuals feel contradictory pressures to be autonomous, achieving individuals and to subordinate self to community and tradition. Karen J. Brison examines traditional kava ceremonies, evangelical church rhetoric, and individual life history narratives to show how individuals draw on a repertoire of narratives from local and international culture to define their identity and sense of self. Our Wealth Is Loving Each Other is appropriate for upper-level students and anyone with an interest in Fiji or anthropology. Book jacket.

Our Wealth Is Loving Each Other explores the fluid and context-bound nature of cultural and personal identity among indigenous Fijians. While national identity in Fiji is often defined in opposition to the West through reference to a romanticized pre-modern tradition, individual Fijians are often more concerned with defining their identity vis- DEGREES-vis other villagers and other groups within Fiji. When people craft self accounts to justify their position within the indigenous Fijian community they question and redefine both tradition and modernity. Modernity on the margins is an experience of anxiety provoking contradictions between competing ideologies, and between international ideologies and local experiences.

"In Wealth, Poverty, and Human Destiny, editors Doug Bandow and David L. Schindler bring together some of today's leading economists, theologians, and social critics to consider whether the triumph of capitalism is a cause for celebration or concern. Michael Novak, Richard John Neuhaus, Max Stackhouse, and other defenders of democratic capitalism marshal a number of arguments in an attempt to show that, among other things, capitalism is more Christian in its foundation and consequences than is conceded by its critics - that, as Stackhouse and Lawrence Stratton write, "the roots of the modern corporation lie in the religious institutions of the West," and that, as Novak contends, "globalization is the natural ecology" of Christianity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

When 50 percent of marriages end in divorce and 43 percent of children are left with one parent, everyone is affected: uncles, aunts, grandparents, and friends, but mostly the children. The devastation from our divorce practices is our most public secret scandal. Everyone whispers it, the whispers never acknowledged. It seems that as long as a villain can be created, society is content. After three decades of research universally pointing to more productive options, why does Custody-Access-Support remain? Why are the facts ignored? Why do so many still insist it is natural or obvious? This book examines divorce customs in the context of our culture as a whole. In this light, the distortions become clear, as do the answers, which are much closer at hand than most think.

In these essays, which were originally delivered as sermons, Coffin argues that religion has fallen on hard times. He offers a cogent means of recovering a faith true to the spirit of the Bible and able to face up to the uncertainties of the present age. Brings essential biblical insights to bear on such issues as arms race, abortion, homosexuality, separation of church and state, communism, the Moral Majority and the true meaning of "Born again." In his vision, the churches can become centers of creative and courageous thinking, and not mere sanctuaries for frustrated men unable to meet the questions of moral and intellectual uncertainty.
