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.

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.

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.

Love in an exotic setting. Esty's life was laid out for her from birth. She would marry one of a handful of young men suggested to her and settle down to raise a large family in a tiny space within the closed community of her parents, near to and yet far from the modern world. But Esty has decided to risk all by escaping while she still can. Will she make it to the other side? Mark, who is struggling with his own life changes, hopes that Esty will find a way through her troubles. He is fast falling in love with her. Separately and together, in Jerusalem and London, Esty and Mark need to overcome many obstacles in their endeavour to achieve their dream. So much more than a romance. A tale of transformation.

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.

From the beginning, Montreal has played a significant role in French writing of North America. While it is relatively easy to find novels to support the idea of Montreal as the center of the French Canadian universe, a more interesting challenge has been to examine the ways in which writers avoid the city, sometimes even effacing a character's, and perhaps their own, montrealite in the process. In this book I examine the various roles of Montreal - agent, setting, allegory, theme, character, trope - in a wide range of novels and short stories. I reveal how Montreal's topography serves to offset the notion of a uniform citizenry while simultaneously reinforcing class differences. I also reject the traditional rural/urban rivalry by examining texts that draw attention to a failed, romanticized view of rurality, yet highlight the fact that Montreal's urban egocentrism can be considered no less an idealized view of society. Perhaps the most valuable inquiry into the literature of Montreal found in the book is the subversion of the monolithic and homogeneous image of the city by detailing individual particularities which reflect the diversity of Montreal's various neighborhoods."
