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.

Having seen Europe with a rucksack on his back and a youthful spring in his step twenty years earlier, Bill Bryson decides to make a sentimental journey back to that familiar territory - to savour once more the complexities of the Thomas Cook European timetable, to wander perilously through the minefields of linguistic confusion and through innumerable European cities in search of a room for the night and a good square meal. With characteristic caustic wit and a cynical eye, he suffers the worst of the weather, every known peculiarity of every country he visits (and several unrecorded oddities) and in the process creates an unforgettably incisive, honest, and funny portrait of modern Europe.

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.

The families of those who disappeared during the 1975-1990 Lebanese civil wars a re still suffering from the disappearance of their family members. They are depr ived from knowing the whereabouts of their loved ones, and are overwhelmed with unanswered questions as to whether their family members are dead or alive. The p ost-war Lebanese governments have not adopted any national policies to acknowled ge the problem, nor to help families in reconciling with the past. The disappeared do not belong to a specific category in the social order. They a re neither dead nor alive. They are suspended between categories and are thus li minal. The liminality of the disappeared can only be studied through the experie nces and narratives of their family members. Drawing on families' narratives as the key issue, this thesis presents a multidisciplinary analysis of the experien ce of the families of the disappeared. Firstly, I suggest that the families' narratives are framed within the context o f liminality. I explore the different aspects related to the issue of disappeara nce and to the liminal state of the families, such as reconciliation on both the personal and the national levels. Secondly, over the course of the research, so me interviewees' recounting of the same material took on new forms. I explore th ese changes and suggest that changes in the narratives correspond with the broad er political changes taking place in Lebanon. Thirdly, I focus on the gendered n ature of the experience of the families where women are predominating in the sea rch for the disappeared. Perceiving the search for the disappeared as women's ro le embodies social and cultural meanings within the broad system of patriarchy. Finally, I focus on families' efforts to reconstruct the disappeared through var ious "linking objects" (photos, personal belongings, artistic work, shrines, and ritualistic visits) through which the disappeared are symbolically retained wit hin the land of the living.

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.

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.

Not illustrated. 1851 edition. Excerpt: ...blest; Where pain is not, nor death--The Paradise of God! June 17. "For this is the will of God, even your sanctifieation."--1 Thess. iv. 3. What an untold might would be ours in striving against sin, if we did indeed believe it to be God's will that we should overcome in the struggle! If you would be strong, seek the strength which you must not dare to doubt will be given to him that asks in faith. Seek it in the hours of pressing temptation. Cast yourself down before God through Christ; then, when the earthly, the ambitious, the untrue, the unloving desire, is strong within you, then say to him: "Lord, it is Thy will that I should be holy; it is Thy will that I should trample upon this temptation;" and you shall have sure proof, by the putting forth of a new might in your hour of trial, that this is God's gracious purpose for you. BISHOP WILBERFORCE. June 18. "Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life."--St. John, vi. 68. Tis vain to flee; 'tis neither here nor there, Can 'scape that hand, until that hand forhear; Ah me! where is He not, that's everywhere 1 "Tis vain to flee, till gentle Mercy show Her better eye; the further off we go, The swing of Justice deals the mightier blow. The ingenuous child corrected, doth not fly His angry mother's hand; but climbs more nigh, And quenches with his tears her flaming eye. Great God! there is no safety here below. Thou art my fortress, Thou that seem'st my foe. Tis Thou that let'st the stroke, must guard the blow. Thou art my God, by Thee I fall or stand; Thy grace hath given me courage to withstand All torture, but my conscience, and thy hand. Then work thy will; if passion bid me flee, My reason shall obey; my wings shall be Stretched...
