Restoried Selves: Autobiographies of Queer Asian / Pacific American Activists presents the first-person accounts of 20 activists—life stories that work against common stereotypes, shattering misconceptions and dispelling misinformation. These autobiographies challenge familial and cultural expectations and values that have traditionally forced queer Asian / Pacific Americans into silent shame because of their sexual orientation and/or ethnicity. Authors share not only their experiences growing up but also how those experiences led them to become social activists, speaking out against oppression. Many harmful untruths—or “stories”—about queer Asian-Pacific Americans have been repeated so often, they are accepted as fact. Restoried Selves: Autobiographies of Queer Asian / Pacific American Activists provides a forum for voices often ignored in academic literature to “re-story” themselves, addressing a range of experiences that includes cultural differences and values, conflicts between different generations in a family or between different groups in a community, and difficulties and rewards of coming out. Those giving voice to their stories through narrative and other writing genres include the transgendered and intersexed, community activists, youths, and parents. The stories told in Restoried Selves: Autobiographies of Queer Asian / Pacific American Activists reflect on: personal experiences—based on country of origin, educational background, religion, gender, and age populations served by activism, including the working poor, immigrants, adoptees, youth, women, and families different arenas of activism, including schools, governments, social services, and the Internet issues targeted by activism, including affirmative action, HIV/AIDS education, mental health, interracial relationships, and sexual violence institutions in need of change, including legal, religious, and educational entities and much more! Restoried Selves: Autobiographies of Queer Asian / Pacific American Activists is an essential read for academics and researchers working in Asian American studies, ethnic studies, gender studies, and queer studies, and for LGBTQ youth and their parents, teachers, and social service providers.

A theologian discusses bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and the fundamental oppression of traditional Christian doctrines. Throughout the history of Christianity, the LGBTQ community has been condemned as unrepentant sinners who are in dire need of God’s saving grace. As a result of this condemnation, they have been subjected to great spiritual, emotional and physical abuse and violence. This issue has taken on a particular urgency in light of the horrific string of suicides of young people who were subjected to harassment and bullying by their classmates because of their gender identities or sexual preferences. In From Sin to Amazing Grace, Cheng argues that people need to be liberated from the traditional thinking about sin as a violation of divine and natural laws in which grace is understood as the strength to refrain from violating such laws. He proposes a Christological model based upon the theologies of Irenaeus, Bonaventure, and Barth, in which sin and grace are defined in terms of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. This book will serve as a useful resource for all people who struggle to make sense of traditional Christian doctrines in the context of the twenty-first century.

At the age of four, a little girl sat in the corner of the small, modest living room, her knees pulled up under her plaid dress... afraid to leave the security of her corner. Fear--that can be a huge factor in a child's life while growing up in an emotionally abusive family. The little girl's nine-year-old brother had died of leukemia; and her mother, grieving the loss of her son and unable to cope, seemed to withdraw from life and into a fog of grief. Thus, the four-year-old was left in a cold, scary, and often overwhelming world with thoughts that made her feel as if she must be a horrible child for her mother to instigate the silent treatment and "leave" her in solitude. Healing My Wounded Inner Child is a true story of Jan E. Frazier's struggles and constant journey to uncover, accept, and love her Inner Child. Emotional abuse is an insidious form of abuse as there are no physical scars; there is no name calling, screaming, or alcoholic rages. However, the child's emotional scars are real. This book touches on many concepts and real-life episodes in Frazier's life which can result from a wounded Inner Child--fear, withdrawal, depression, low self-esteem, Anorexia Nervosa, co-dependency, and perfectionism. Reading this book is like opening a window to the soul... This author has brought to light the powerful message that by communicating with our inner child, by loving our past selves, by protecting and cherishing that child that we all keep hidden within, we can become the person we were put on this earth to be. We can be free, happy, and fulfilled... - Christy Loy, secondary teacher -- Jan E. Frazier

Bahnbrechend. Inspirierend. Eines der faszinierendsten Bücher zur Organisationsentwicklung des letzten Jahrzehnts. Dies ist ein sehr wichtiges Buch, bedeutsam in vielerlei Hinsicht: Sowohl angesichts der bahnbrechenden Forschungsergebnisse, Einsichten, Ratschläge und Empfehlungen, die es enthält, als auch aufgrund der genauso wichtigen Fragen und Herausforderungen, auf die es hinweist.“ Ken Wilber aus dem Nachwort „Die programmatische Aufforderung ‚Reinventing Organizations‘ mündet in einem Organisationsmodell, das Strukturen wie Praktiken nach neuartigen, evolutionär-integralen Prinzipien ausrichtet. Im Ergebnis steht die Erkenntnis, dass das Leben und Arbeiten in Organisationen, ebenso wie deren Leistungsbeiträge für die Gesellschaft, radikal zum Positiven verändert werden können. Aber hierzu muss nicht zuletzt die Führung eine fortgeschrittene Entwicklungsebene erreichen.“ Prof. Dr. Jürgen Weibler, Autor des Standardwerkes „Personalführung“ „Das Buch gibt Hoffnung und ganz konkrete Hilfe zur Lösung der Probleme, die wir an der Schwelle von der Postmoderne zu einem neuen Zeitalter erleben, in denen die traditionellen oder modernen Organisationsformen den Anforderungen und Bedürfnissen der Menschen nicht mehr gerecht werden.“ Eine Leserin auf Amazon.com Frederic Laloux hat mit Reinventing Organizations das Grundlagenbuch für die integrale Organisationsentwicklung verfasst. Die Breite sowie Tiefe seiner Analyse und Beschreibung – ganzheitlich, selbstorganisierend und sinnerfüllend operierender Unternehmen – ist einzigartig. Das erste Kapitel des Buches gibt einen Überblick über die historische Entwicklung von Organisationsparadigmen, bevor im zweiten Kapitel Strukturen, die Praxis und die Kultur von Organisationen, die ein erfüllendes und selbstbestimmtes Handeln der Menschen ermöglichen, anhand von ausgewählten Beispielen vorgestellt werden. Auf die Bedingungen, Hindernisse sowie Herausforderungen bei der Entwicklung dieser evolutionären Organisationen wird in Kapitel 3 eingegangen. Hier entwirft Frederic Laloux einen Leitfaden für den Weg hin zu einer ganzheitlich orientierten und sinnstiftenden Organisation. Frederic Laloux ist auch aufgrund dieses Buches ein mittlerweile gefragter Berater und Coach für Führungskräfte, die nach fundamental neuen Wegen der Organisation eines Unternehmens suchen. Er war Associate Partner bei McKinsey & Company und hält einen MBA vom INSEAD.
