F.F. Bosworth: The Man behind “Christ the Healer”

Roscoe Barnes III, 978-1-4438-1004-3


When the Pentecostal movement exploded in 1906 in Zion City, Ill., Fred Francis Bosworth was present. When the Assemblies of God was being formed, Bosworth served as one of its leaders. He also was present as a mentor to the tent revivalists in the 1940s and 1950s.


This book is about the life and ministry of Bosworth (1877-1958), a Pentecostal pioneer, musician, famous healing evangelist, and the author of Christ the Healer. He reportedly led over a million people to Christ, and was considered by scholars and ministers alike to be one of the most successful healing evangelists of his era.

His writings on divine healing influenced many church leaders of his day, as well many who claim healing ministries today. While many people are familiar with his book, Christ the Healer, few know much about the man behind the book.

F.F. Bosworth is the first book to offer a critical analysis of Bosworth's life and ministry from the beginning to the end. The purpose of this work is to explore his life and ministry in order to identify and analyze some of the factors that contributed to his success as a famous healing evangelist.

Reclaiming Home, Remembering Motherhood, Rewriting History: African American and Afro-Caribbean Women’s Literature in the Twentieth Century

Verena Theile and Marie Drews, 978-1-4438-0962-7


Reclaiming Home, Remembering Motherhood, Rewriting History: African American and Afro-Caribbean Women’s Literature in the Twentieth Century offers a critical valuation of literature composed by black female writers and examines their projects of reclamation, rememory, and revision. As a collection, it engages black women writers’ efforts to create more inclusive conceptualizations of community, gender, and history, conceptualizations that take into account alternate lived and written experiences as well as imagined futures.


Contributors to this collection probe the realms of gender studies, postcolonialism, and post-structural theory and suggest important ways in which to explore connections between home, motherhood, and history across the multifarious narratives of African American and Afro-Caribbean experiences. Together they argue that it is through their female characters that black women writers demonstrate the tumultuous processes of deciphering home and homeland, of articulating the complexities of mothering relationships, and of locating their own personal history within local and national narratives.


Essays gathered in this collection consider the works of African American women writers (Pauline Hopkins, Toni Morrison, Jessie Redmon Fauset, Audre Lorde, Lalita Tademy, Lorene Cary, Octavia Butler, Zora Neale Hurston, and Sherley Anne Williams) alongside the works of black women writers from the Caribbean (Jamaica Kincaid and Gisèle Pineau), Guyana (Grace Nichols), and Cuba (María de los Reyes Castillo Bueno).

Tools of Their Tools: Communications Technologies and American Cultural Practice

Grzegorz Kość and Krzysztof Majer, 978-1-4438-0978-8


The book explores the role of communication technologies in American cultural practice over the last 150 years. Communication technologies are here understood to include audio and visual reproduction technologies, analogue telecommunications such as traditional telephony, radio and television broadcasts, digital telecommunications, computer-mediated communications, telegraphy, and computer networks. The study of the impact of such technologies is a way to explore the various flows and tensions of American culture. How has American society molded communication technologies? How have they, in turn, shaped American history? Are Americans still, in the words of Thoreau, "tools of their tools"? More so or less than during the philosopher's Walden days? How do America's cultural, ethical, and economic assumptions determine and limit the ways in which telecommunications function in American society? Fascinating questions abound.

The Healing Power of Ancient Literature

Stephen Bertman and Lois Parker, 978-1-4438-0988-7


“Time heals all,” said Sophocles some 25 centuries ago. Taking the Greek dramatist at his word, two investigators—one a classicist and the other a licensed psychologist—organized a symposium to explore the capacity of the past to cure the ills of the present.


The symposium’s premise was that literature, especially ancient literature, possesses a profound power to heal our souls, a power that is especially needed today when the rapidity of change and the force of world events combine to make peace of mind an ever more distant and seemingly unreachable goal. Featuring nationally-renowned scholars, the meeting explored the wisdom literature of Egypt, the Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh, the Biblical books of Ecclesiastes and Job, the poetry of Homer, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, and the teachings of Lao-tzu as sources of enlightenment and inspiration for the modern world.


The present anthology incorporates all six of the symposium’s formal presentations—by Stephen Bertman, John Foster, David Hicks, John Maier, and Rami Shapiro—as well as an additional essay by Lois Parker on the symposium’s humanistic theme.

European SME’s and Global Business: A Scandinavian Perspective

Henry Langseth, 978-1-4438-0983-2


Globalisation has instigated huge changes in the competitive environment for business entrepreneurs, and both large and small firms now frequently operate in similar conditions. Most research studies in international business have tended to focus on the market growth and internationalisation of large-scale and multinational companies as opposed to the experiences of more small-scale enterprises. The research outlined in this volume is radical and different in this regard. Employing cases studies from a range of Norwegian-based SMEs (Small-to-Medium-based enterprises), this volume explores the diverse factors which influence the speed of entrepreneurial internationalisation and the significance of this development for both the entrepreneur and the government bodies which provide support to such businesses. Market advantage frequently accrues to those who enterprises who internationalise quickly and who are quicker than others to embrace both foreign markets and a more internationally-focussed signature brand or identity. This research outlined here is an important addition to the growing body of literature which analyses the forces influencing modern-day market internationalisation.

Occupational Mobility among Scheduled Castes

Jagan Karade, 978-1-4438-0989-4


The book discusses the educational achievements and occupational mobility among the Scheduled Castes in India, the group that is a large section of Indian population (called as Dalit), was deprived of their basic legitimate and human rights to live with dignity. The book shows that, the second generation of Scheduled Castes is highly mobile as compared to their fathers’ generation. It also attempts to measure the impact of Inclusive Policy provided by the Government of India. In this book, author found that, after the religious conversion under the leadership of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, the Mahars converted to Buddhism. Therefore, the Buddhist community is more aware about the occupational development as compared to other communities. Hence, the development of the Buddhists could be treated as an ideal model for all the Backward Classes in India.

Chinese Revolution and Chinese Literature

Tao Dongfeng, Yang Xiaobin, Rosemary Roberts and Yang Ling, 978-1-4438-0974-0


This volume has brought together essays to explore, analyse and interpret the revolutionary tradition in modern Chinese literature over the past century from various angles. The authors examines the bodily or carnal dimension, especially the hidden implication of sexual passion, in revolutionary literature, formulate feminist critiques of the conception of women in literary expressions of revolution, explore the function of revolution as historical discourse and in historiographical representation, and discuss the reworking of “revolutionary classics” in recent literary and artistic endeavours. Here, revolution (in history and in literature) is conceptualized neither as an unquestionably progressive and creative force for a new world, nor an absolutely pejorative concept that necessarily leads to sociopolitical turmoil and tragedy. Insofar as “postrevolutionary writings” cannot but reappropriate the revolutionary spirit as their unavoidable and inseparable traumatic kernel, studies in revolutionary literature and culture, too, go through the zigzag experience of revolution in order to scrutinize its complex implications.

Lucian’s Dialogi Marini

Adam N. Bartley, 978-1-4438-0960-3


Lucian, born in approximately 125 AD, was a prolific satirical author from the city of Samosata in the province of Syria, now Samsat in Turkey. He was, apparently, not a native speaker of Greek, and yet went on to become an instructor in rhetoric, with posts in Greece, Gaul and Rome, before finally becoming an administrator in Egypt during the reign of the Emperor Commodus and passing away some time after 180 AD. He composed more than seventy works, including many satirical dialogues, speeches and even a short novel. The Dialogues of the Sea Gods are a collection of brief dialogues between famous figures in Greek myth that all have something to do with the sea, including Poseidon, Triton, the Nereids, the Winds and even the Cyclops. While they are cleverly written and amusing in their own right, these fifteen dialogues also have much to show us about the works of mythology that were popular in the second century AD, contemporary views on the many inconsistencies in Greek myth and those parts of the world where, despite being outside what we would consider ‘Greece’ in modern terms, Greek culture flourished under Roman rule.


This volume considers the developments of literary Greek language, the relationship between Greek Drama, Epic and Bucolic poetry in Lucian’s time, and the discussions of myth by philosophical and moralistic writers that Lucian both uses to critique myths and parodies in their own right. This has much to tell us about the works that survived into Lucian’s time from the Classical period, including many that we now know only from fragmentary material, and their relative popularity. There is also detailed examination of the way that the interaction between Greek and non-Greek culture has influenced Lucian’s depiction of ‘Greek’ myths.

Universalisation of Elementary Education: A Study of District Primary Education Programme from South India

J. Ravindra Babu, 978-1-4438-0999-3


The success of the primary education system has a direct bearing on the upper primary, non-formal and adult and continuing education sectors; an efficient primary education system is expected to contribute significantly to total literacy: an appropriate rise in literacy levels improves the functioning of other systems of education. Effective delivery of primary education contributes to bettering India's HDI (Human Development Index), including our standing in the Human Development Index evolved by UNDP.


This volume is a study of the District Primary Education Programme (DPEP) in one of the states of South India. It is a piece of policy evaluation research expected to contribute to the ongoing discussion of policy processes in primary schools. It specifically questions to what extent objectives such as access, retention, quality and equality are achieved by the implementation of the DPEP.


Figures from before and after the implementation of the DPEP show a significant increase in enrolment levels in primary schools all over the state. Thus, the major impact of DPEP implementation is seen in enhanced access to primary schools. The study shows that the DPEP implementation succeeded in attaining the objective of equality. This can be observed from gender equality in dropout rates at various primary grades. The DPEP seems to have achieved only moderate success in meeting the objective of retention of students. The DPEP does not seem to have approached the quality objective very seriously.
