Neither Here, Nor There

Travels in Europe

Bill Bryson’s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

Neither Here nor There: The Many Voices of Liminality draws together the expertise, experience, and insights of a coterie of authors, all of whom relate the core concepts of liminality to their unique contexts. The experience of and inquiry into liminal phenomena have developed into a distinct discipline of study which now crosses and informs many areas of thought, including anthropology, sociology, theology, psychology, literature and education. New vistas of interdisciplinary study have opened as a result of sharing the common language and symbol system of liminality. This anthology reflects the current resurgence of liminality and provides a critical source book ideal for individual reflection, study groups, classes and seminars. Fromthe inner workings of spiritual life to large social transformations, liminality now provides a powerful interpretive tool and effective method for spiritual direction, teaching and leadership.

Now that he knows his true identity, the human disguise that has been protecting him begins to fade and a whole host of wicked creatures tries to tempt him to use his Faerie power for evil intentions.

Italians and Swiss-Italians on the Walhalla Goldfield 1865-1915

In the decades following the discovery of gold in Walhalla, Victoria, in 1863, among the thousands who flocked to the district hoping to make their fortune were hundreds of Italians and Swiss-Italians. Many were sojourners, temporary residents, who later moved to other areas in Australia or returned home permanently. Some settled on the goldfield with their families. Drawing from a wide range of sources, this book offers a reconstructed history of goldfield life from the viewpoint of the Italian speakers who were present from the beginning. Instead of adopting a 'big picture' historical approach to Italian settlement in Australia, it examines the finer texture of a small place and seeks to push the boundaries of understanding what nineteenth century Italian-speaking men and women may have made of their lives in a foreign land. Migration patterns, work practices and the evolution of community within settler society are also evaluated. The book also emphasizes the relevance of micro-studies of this nature and their place within the wider national and international study of migration. It also includes a detailed names index of over four hundred individuals found to have lived on the goldfield, which should be of great interest to family researchers.

A First Generation Immigrant in Search of American Exceptionalism

Author: Frans H. Jager



Category: Cultural pluralism

Page: 286

View: 179

A first generation immigrant comes to the United States with an expectation that he is making a good deal. That by coming to the USA he will shape a better future for himself and his family than he could expect to have by staying put. But we are living in a fast moving age where circumstances change frequently and fundamentally. The purpose of NEITHER HERE NOR THERE is to give an honest account of one personal journey from the old country (the Netherlands) to America. It looks back at how the author perceived the choice he had to make and how he perceived the future for America versus the Netherlands. It looks back at the conditions under which the author grew up in post war Europe and it compares the expectations he had of a future in America with how it turned out. In the process, the book aims to contribute to an urgently needed civil discourse on what is going right and wrong in America and what might be done to make good on the quest for American Exceptionalism.
