Liz Murray never really had a chance in life. Born to a drug-addicted father who was in and out of prison, and an equally dependent mother who was in and out of mental institutions, she seemed destined to become just another tragic statistic. Another life wasted on the brutal streets of New York. By the age of 15, Liz found herself homeless with nowhere to turn but the tough streets, riding subways all night for a warm place to sleep and foraging through dumpsters for food. But when her mother died of AIDS a year later, Liz's life changed for ever. With no education, with no chance at a job or a home, she realised that only the most astonishing of turnarounds could stop her heading all the way down the same path her parents took. And so she set her mind to overcoming what seemed like impossible odds - and in the process, achieved something extraordinary. Told with astounding sincerity, Breaking Night is the breathtaking and inspirational story of how a young women, born into a world without hope, used every ounce of strength and determination to steer herself towards a brighter future. Beautifully written, it is a poignant, evocative and stirring portrait of struggle, desperation, forgiveness and survival.

Μερικές φορές ένα κορίτσι δέχεται το άγγιγμα της Πολεμόχαρης Μητέρας. Τέτοιο κορίτσι είναι και η Θορν. Πασχίζοντας να πάρει εκδίκηση για τον θάνατο του πατέρα της, ζει μονάχα για να πολεμά. Τώρα, όμως, ο άντρας που τη δίδαξε πώς να σκοτώνει την κατηγορεί για φόνο. Μερικές φορές, μια γυναίκα γίνεται πολεμίστρια. Ξαφνικά βρίσκεται μπλεγμένη στις δολοπλοκίες του Πατέρα Γιάρβι, του πανούργου θεράποντα της Γκέτλαντ. Διασχίζοντας τον μισό κόσμο, αναζητώντας συμμάχους ενάντια στον αδίστακτο Υψηλό Βασιλέα, θα υποστεί μια σκληρή μαθητεία στο αίμα και τον δόλο. Μερικές φορές, μια πολεμίστρια γίνεται όπλο. Στο ταξίδι αυτό, έχει στο πλευρό της τον Μπραντ, έναν πολεμιστή που απεχθάνεται να σκοτώνει –αποτυχημένο τόσο στα δικά της μάτια όσο και στα δικά του–, με μία και μοναδική ευκαιρία να εξιλεωθεί. Τα όπλα υπηρετούν έναν και μόνο σκοπό. Άραγε η Θορν θα παραμείνει σε όλη της τη ζωή έρμαιο των ισχυρών ή θα καταφέρει να χαράξει τον δικό της δρόμο;

We live in a culture of apology and forgiveness. But while there are a few thinkers who criticize forgiveness in favor of retribution, philosopher and intellectual Martha C. Nussbaum is unique in criticizing the supposed virtue from the other side: forgiveness, Nussbaum asserts, is at itsheart inquisitorial and disciplinary. In this book based on her 2014 Locke Lectures, Nussbaum hones in first on anger and then on forgiveness, so vigorously championed today as a replacement emotion. Arguing that anger includes not only the idea of a serious wrong but also the idea that it would be a good thing if the wrongdoer sufferedsome bad consequence, Nussbaum asserts that anger, so understood, is always normatively problematic in one or the other of two possible ways. One way makes the mistake of thinking that the suffering of the wrongdoer restores the thing that was damaged. The other requires the victim to see the injuryas about relative status and only about that. While anger is sometimes useful as a signal that things have gone wrong, as a motive to address them, and as a deterrent to wrongdoing, its core ideas are profoundly flawed: either incoherent in the first case, or normatively ugly in the second. Neitheris anger as useful as it is often taken to be.Nussbaum goes on to strip the notion of forgiveness down to its Judeo-Christian roots, where the primary moral relationship is that between an omniscient score-keeping God and erring, penitent mortals. The relationship between a wronged human and another is, she says, based on this primary God-humanrelationship. Nussbaum agrees with Nietzsche in seeing in Judeo-Christian forgiveness a displaced vindictiveness and a concealed resentment that are ungenerous and unhelpful in human relations. The process of forgiveness can bolster a narcissistic resentment better eschewed in favor of a newparadigm based on generosity, justice, and truth.

From a pioneering researcher, this book synthesizes the best current knowledge on resilience in children and adolescents. Ann S. Masten explores what allows certain individuals to thrive and adapt despite adverse circumstances, such as poverty, chronic family problems, or exposure to trauma. Coverage encompasses the neurobiology of resilience as well as the role of major contexts of development: families, schools, and culture. Identifying key protective factors in early childhood and beyond, Masten provides a cogent framework for designing programs to promote resilience. Complex concepts are carefully defined and illustrated with real-world examples.
