In this compelling study of the crack business in East Harlem, Philippe Bourgois argues that a cultural struggle for respect has led some residents of 'El Barrio' away from the legal job market, and into a downward spiral of crime and poverty. During his many years living in the neighborhood, Bourgois eventually gained the confianza of enough Barrio residents to present their hopes, plans, and disappointments in their own words. The result is an engaging and often disturbing look at the problems of the inner-city, America's greatest domestic failing.

Gus is a teen ager whose parents are killed in an Indian raid on their farm in Bedford County Pennsylvania. He vows that he will one day avenge their deaths. After moving in with relatives in Bedford, Gus meets Elizabeth, a new girl in town, who turns out to be the minister’s daughter. His feelings for her grow stronger each time they are together and he finds himself making excuses to walk by her house or to bump into her in places he knows she will be. He even starts attending church just to see her. In time, it becomes obvious to Elizabeth’s father that his daughter and Gus are in love. But he wants his daughter to marry a professional man, not someone who had wants to be a farmer. He asks Gus to stop visiting and to let Elizabeth find someone else more to his liking. Gus is upset. He has lost his parents and now he has lost the only girl he had ever loved. He vows that somehow he will prove himself worthy to marry Elizabeth. The opportunity to be able to seek his revenge and to earn some respect comes when a notice is posted at the fort saying that the army is seeking local scouts to lead a brigade of men under the direction of Colonel Henry Bouquet to Fort Pitt that was under siege. Gus is an excellent marksman and woodsman and he is selected as one of the scouts. The journey from Fort Bedford over the mountains to Fort Ligonier is a hard one. What makes it a little easier is listening to one of the veterans of the French and Indian War tells stories of what had happened during the campaigns he was in just a few years earlier. These stories give Gus hope that he would be able to meet his enemy and take his revenge. But each night after the stories, while he lie on the ground trying to sleep, he thinks less of killing Indians and more of the girl he left and wonders how he would ever win her hand. As the brigade makes its way from Fort Ligonier toward Fort Pitt, it is attacked by the Indians who had Fort Pitt under siege.

In Search of Community is a collection of thirteen essays by former students of Dr. Werner Stark, influential historian of social thought. The work opens with an introduction succinctly relating an outline of Stark's life's work encompassing the historical framework that influences him, and the personal events that shape his outlook and scholarship. The essayists address the entire range of central subjects of the sociological discipline by focusing on four areas of scientific debate: the epistemic (Sociology of Knowledge), the theoretical (Social Thought), the societal (Social Bond), and the religious (Sociology of Religion). Those four areas were also of substantive concern to Werner Stark and his extraordinary range and depth of knowledge is reflected in this collection of essays.

As a recent college graduate and fledging newspaper reporter in the Lake Tahoe area, Jeremy Evans became immersed in ski bum culture--a carefree lifestyle whose mantra was simply: "Ski as much as possible." His snowboarding suffered when he left for a job in the Portland area; and when, at twenty-six, he suffered a stroke, he reexamined his priorities, quit his job, moved back to Tahoe, and threw himself into snowboarding. But while he had been away, the culture had changed. This book is Evans's paean to the disappearing culture of the ski bum. A fascinating look at a world far removed from the larger culture, it is also a curious account of a passion for powder and what its disappearance means. Evans looks at several prominent ski towns in the West (including Crested Butte, Jackson Hole, Telluride, Lake Tahoe, Park City, and Mammoth) and the ski bums who either flourished or fled. He chronicles the American West transformed by rising real estate costs, an immigrant workforce, misguided values, and corporate-owned resorts. The story he tells is that of quintessentially American characters--rejecting materialism, taking risks, following their own path--and of the glories and pitfalls their lifestyle presents.

Are we able to say that life is governed by a group of conscious people? Where are they? Who are they? We see exactly the opposite: that life is governed by those who are the least conscious, by those who are most asleep. Provocative ideas such as these have attracted generations of thoughtful people to the methods of self-study and inner work devised by Gurdjieff, one of the most radical spiritual teachers of modern times. According to Gurdjieff, the wars raging at this very moment are nothing more than millions of sleeping people trying to annihilate millions of other sleeping people. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such as thing as progress and evolution as long as humanity remains asleep. Two hundred conscious people could change the whole of life on the earth, Gurdjieff says. If we want to become those conscious people, we must learn how to change ourselves. With the help of self-knowledge and an understanding of our relation to the universe, we can awaken to a higher level of being—if we wish to change ourselves. All of Gurdjieff's fundamental principles and methods of transforming the intellect, emotions, and body, in the system known as the Fourth Way, are presented in this book in his own clear, precise words preserved by his closest pupils. Arranged in an orderly sequence of passages drawn from two primary source books—P. D. Ouspensky's In Search of the Miraculous, and Views from the Real World, edited by Mme. Jeanne de Salzmann—this material is an indispensable introduction for those determined to undertake the efforts and practices necessary for awakening consciousness. All the basic concepts and methods are covered, including: • man is "asleep" • we have no unified "I" • the need for self-knowledge • functions of the human "machine" • states of consciousness • levels of being • three centers: moving, emotional, and thinking • personality and essence • the possibility of self-development • self-observation • remembering oneself • conscious evolution • the law of three forces • the ray of creation • the law of octaves • the Enneagram, a universal symbol • the variety of spiritual ways • esoteric Christianity • working in groups • the necessity of schools
