In the predecessor to this book, The Universal Vampire: Origins and Evolution of a Legend, Brodman and Doan presented discussions of the development of the vampire in the West from the early Norse draugr figure to the medieval European revenant and ultimately to Dracula, who first appears as a vampire in Anglo-Irish Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula, published in 1897. The essays in that collection also looked at the non-Western vampire in Native American and Mesoamerican traditions, Asian and Russian vampires in popular culture, and the vampire in contemporary novels, film and television. The essays in this collection continue that multi-cultural and multigeneric discussion by tracing the development of the post-modern vampire, in films ranging from Shadow of a Doubt to Blade, The Wisdom of Crocodiles and Interview with the Vampire; the male and female vampires in the Twilight films, Sookie Stackhouse novels and TrueBlood television series; the vampire in African American women’s fiction, Anne Rice’s novels and in the post-apocalyptic I Am Legend; vampires in Japanese anime; and finally, to bring the volumes full circle, the presentation of a new Irish Dracula play, adapted from the novel and set in 1888.

Reality, what a concept. Is life a puppet show and are we nothing but puppets? A hidden world all about us, angels and demons, or is what we can touch and sense all there is? And now, the Simulation Hypothesis plagues us. Could we really be living in a computer simulation? Through the ages, the conundrum of Reality has messed with the collective consciousness of humanity. The Allegory of Plato's Cave down through the ages to The Matrix. A chance meeting in the park leads two strangers to discover strange connections between themselves and the world, and in truth both had felt that perhaps there was something not quite right with the world, something different. They have both noticed improbable coincidences popping up in their lives, at an almost alarming regularity, and now, meeting, they witness strange signs in the heavens, and find themselves on a bizarre path that will make them question their very reality, and the reality of the world about them, and the universe itself.

"This book reflects anthropology's growing encounter with the key "pysch" disciplines (psychology and psychiatry) in theorizing and researching mental illness treatment and recovery. Khan summarizes new approaches to mental illness, situating them in the context of historical, political, psychoanalytic, and postcolonial approaches, and encouraging readers to understand how health, illness, normality, and abnormality is constructed and produced. Using case studies from a variety of regions, Khan explores what anthropologically informed psychology/psychiatry/medicine can tell us about mental illness across cultures."--

"It has been my privilege to know Franklin Trainer for several years. He is a man of Christian character and has proven himself faithful. He takes his responsibilities very seriously while attempting his very best to live holy and being led by the Spirit. I would say that he is old fashion in his beliefs, but he simply just believes the Bible. You will only find him using the King James Bible in his studies and devotionals. My wife has spent time with his wife and their home is solid, stable and full of Christian joy. If you want to read devotionals written by a man that lives them out daily, please read Provoked." Sincerely, Evangelist Matt Pringle Ottumwa Baptist Temple Ottumwa, Iowa "Cut from the old cloth of the patriarchs, Franklin Trainer wastes no time trying to be good. He knows that he is a sinner and must have God's own goodness for his own. Franklin is not concerned with simply being right. Rather, he insists on Christ's righteousness being imputed to him. This is a man who has been to Bethel, and who has walked with God and every aspect of his life is fragrant with the aroma of celestial delights. Now he has erected an altar, and welcomes us all to worship with him at the feet of the One he adores. Having wrestled with God for every benediction within, Franklin generously invites us to enjoy them with him." Pastor Caleb Thompson Austin, Texas Born and raised in rural Missouri, Franklin grew up appreciating the value of candor and honesty. Choosing early on to surround himself with older mentors, his own age and maturity has now served to solidify the benefit of having learned plain speak during his formative years. Reared in a crosspatch of Protestantism, but not saved until the age of 29, has forged a post salvation passion, and a compelling heart, to reach out to others who perhaps live in like delusion that all is well with their soul apart from being "born again" (cf. John 3:3, 5). Working for some 24 years in youth ministry, Franklin takes seriously the admonition "to teach others also" those eternal truths instilled in him by "faithful men" gone on before (cf. 2 Timothy 2:2). Franklin teaches and preaches regularly in chapel and Sunday morning classes as a staffer at his local church and Christian school; as well as on the radio in the nearby community. Married, with two grown daughters, two terrific sons-in-law, and one granddaughter; life in CHRIST is rich and rewarding indeed. The Trainer's make their home in the Ozark region of the 'Show Me' state; enjoying country living at its finest, amidst some of the best climate and scenery found anywhere under GOD'S Heaven.

Anchored in Jewish ethical tradition, community-building, and an activist’s call to repair the world, “Hope into Practice” is about human liberation, linking personal healing with social justice. It also asks Jewish women to love ourselves enough to face our fears without acting on them—expanding our sense of possibility, empowering our activism. This book brings to life an irresistible blend of healing stories, fascinating history, and a fair-minded perspective on Israel-Palestine. It also includes an extensive Action-Oriented Reader's Guide, for groups and individuals. "'Thank you' is what I thought I was supposed to say when told I didn't 'look Jewish.'" What will make it irresistible for Jewish women to free ourselves of internalized anti-Semitism? This book's bottom line is that the better we feel about who we are and where we come from, the better we’ll treat other people—and the more positive/powerful our activism will be in creating a just and generous world, plus the more joyful, expansive and meaningful our own lives will be.

What does it mean to turn the public library or museum into a civic forum? Made in Newark describes a turbulent industrial city at the dawn of the twentieth century and the ways it inspired the library's outspoken director, John Cotton Dana, to collaborate with industrialists, social workers, educators, and New Women. This is the story of experimental exhibitions in the library and the founding of the Newark Museum Associationùa project in which cultural literacy was intertwined with civics and consumption. Local artisans demonstrated crafts, connecting the cultural institution to the department store, school, and factory, all of which invoked the ideal of municipal patriotism. Today, as cultural institutions reappraise their relevance, Made in Newark explores precedents for contemporary debates over the ways the library and museum engage communities, define heritage in a multicultural era, and add value to the economy.
