Based on her work with minority women living, in Newark, New Jersey, Sabrina Marie Chase illuminates the hidden traps and land mines burdening our current health care system as a whole. For the women she studied, alliances with doctors, nurses, and social workers could literally mean the difference between life and death. By applying the theories of sociologist Pierre Bourdieu to the day-today experiences of HIV-positive Latinas, Chase explains why some struggled and even died while others flourished and thrived under difficult conditions.

This book examines interpreter-mediated medical encounters and focuses primarily on the phenomenon of bilingual health care. It highlights the interactive and coordinated nature of interpreter-mediated interactions. Elaine Hsieh has put together over 15 hours of interpreter-mediated medical encounters, interview data with 26 interpreters from 17 different cultures/languages, 39 health care providers from 5 clinical specialties, and surveys of 293 providers from 5 clinical specialties. The depth and richness of the data allows for the presentation of a theoretical framework that is not restricted by language combination or clinical contexts. This will be the first book of its kind that includes not only interpreters’ perspectives but also the needs and perspectives of providers from various clinical specialties. Bilingual Health Communication presents an opportunity to lay out a new theoretical framework related to bilingual health care and connects the latest findings from multiple disciplines. This volume presents future research directions that promise development for both theory and practice in the field.

Zionism in Arab discourses presents a ground-breaking study of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Through analyses of hundreds of texts written by Arab Islamists and liberals from the late-nineteenth century to the 'Arab Spring', the book demonstrates that the Zionist enterprise has played a dual function of an enemy and a mentor. Islamists and liberals alike discovered, respectively, in Zionism and in Israeli society qualities they sought to implement in their sown homelands. Focusing on Palestinian, Egyptian, Syrian and Jordanian political discourses, this study uncovers fascinating and unexpected Arab points of views on different aspects of Zionism; from the first Zionist Congress to the First Lebanon War; from gardening in the early years of Tel Aviv to women's service in the Israeli Defence Forces; from the role of religion in the creation of the state to the role of democracy in its preservation. This study presents the debates between and within contesting Arab ideological trends on a conflict that has shaped, and is certain to continue and shape, one of the most complicated regions in the world.

National Book Award für den besten Roman des Jahres. Ein altes Haus, eine ungesühnte Schuld und die Brüste von Tante Sonja – Louise Erdrich, liebevolle Chronistin der amerikanischen Ureinwohner, führt uns nach North Dakota. Im Zentrum ihres gefeierten Romans steht der 14jährige Joe, der ein brutales Verbrechen an seiner Mutter rächt und dabei zum Mann wird. Im Sommer 1988 wird die Mutter des 14-jährigen Joe Coutts Opfer eines brutalen Verbrechens. Sie schließt sich in ihrem Zimmer ein und verweigert die Aussage. Vater und Sohn wissen nicht, wie sie sie zurück ins Leben holen können. Da sich der Überfall auf der Nahtstelle dreier Territorien ereignet hat, sind drei Behörden mit den Ermittlungen befasst. Selbst Joes Vater sind als Stammesrichter die Hände gebunden. So beschließt Joe, den Gewalttäter selbst zu finden. Mit seinen Freunden Cappy, Angus und Zack unternimmt er teils halsbrecherische, teils urkomische Ermittlungsversuche. Bei seiner aufreizenden Tante und im Kreis katholischer Pfadfinderinnen begegnet er der Liebe – und in alten Akten dem Schlüssel des Verbrechens.
