The Ties That Bind comprises the first collection of critical essays that explore the family system in Spanish and Latin American culture. This thought-provoking volume addresses the intersection of language, narrative structure, social reality, and family dynamics through examples from a diverse range of literary works, including Cervantes' Don Quijote, Reinaldo Arenas' Celestino antes del alba, and the Chicano film My Family/Mi Familia. Issues of feminism, gender and sexuality, abuse, trauma, and communication take the forefront in this ground-breaking book, which takes psychological literary criticism a step beyond traditional psychoanalytical approaches.

Modern states - and novel multinational polities such as the European Union - have to contend with greater degrees, and more complex forms, of diversity. What elements keep complex, -post-national-, political entities together? What are the ties that bind people together in a world where they cannot rely on the safety of established national identifications (if they ever could)? This collection of essays by leading political scientists, philosophers and legal academics from Canada and Europe provides a transatlantic dialogue on the ways in which complex states (such as Canada) and non-states (the EU) may broach the modes of difference and diversity that confront them. Authors engage in insightful -diagnoses- of contemporary forms and modes of diversity, as well as critical appraisals of a number of normative responses meant to answer these challenges. These responses range from -reasonable accommodation- and multinationalism to cosmopolitanism. They include the recognition of -post-national-, -multinational- or -deterritorialised- democracy and constitutional patriotism, as well as plural or -denationalised- citizenship."

This book presents an interpretation and analysis of the phenomenon of ambivalence so persistent in the Afro-American consciousness of Africa. Today a wide range of black opinion has accepted Pan-Africanism and Africa and many are consciously making an effective attempt to create more links with Africa. The right of blacks to be culturally independent is now accepted, at least verbally, without question. But this was not always the case. The present study is offered as an exploration in the field of social identity as it affects people in diaspora. The identity of every people is shaped in their environment, it is a legacy of historical forces.

Miriam has spent the last 25 years collecting tales of childhood and family life. She has changed approximately 99,805 diapers. For the last seven years, she has cooked for a minimum of ten people three times a day which makes 76,650 meals (not to mention the dishes) and she is afraid to estimate how many loads of laundry she may have done. Along the way she has learned that the wash will never be done, that teenage children eat enormous amounts of food, that she should have bought stock in Pampers, and that no one ever went to college who wasn't potty trained. The Ties That Bind is a light-hearted collection of stories gathered in her spare time that reflect her belief that motherhood is not just a job, its an adventure

An amoral and unprincipled - but charismatic and good-looking - young man calling himself Jack turns up to a Halloween party dressed as the Devil. The lady of the house is Kim Buckley, a beautiful but shy young woman who is vulnerable to the flattery of others, despite being married to a wealthy business consultant. Jack calmly announces he's the illegitimate and unacknowledged son of Kim's recently deceased father. She had no idea he existed. Feigning a brotherly interested in Kim, he is actually out to seek revenge on her for being the pampered only daughter of their rakish father. Things are complicated by the fact they have a mutual powerful sexual interest in each other and, although Kim is filled with shame and guilt at this unnatural obsession, she finds herself being drawn into his gameplan for success.

Annotation This book, like in classical times of Plato and Aristotle, treats individual and communal ethics as intertwined. At its heart lies the quartet of respect, concern for welfare of others, trust, and care as the basic communal ties. Moravcsik's proposal for ethics does not deny some objective ground for sound communal life, but leaves many alternatives within which the four basic ties can be implemented.
