    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 44.95

    In the last three decades the field of endangered and minority languages has evolved rapidly, moving from the initial dire warnings of linguists to a swift increase in the number of organizations, funding programs, and community-based efforts dedicated to documentation, maintenance, and revitalization. Sustaining Linguistic Diversity brings together... more...

  • Catholics and Politicsby Kristin E. Heyer; Mark J. Rozell; Michael A. Genovese

    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 29.95

    Catholic political identity and engagement defy categorization. The complexities of political realities and the human nature of such institutions as church and government often produce a more fractured reality than the pure unity depicted in doctrine. Yet, in 2003 under the leadership of then-prefect Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI),... more...

    Georgetown University Press 2006; US$ 37.50

    Health Care Ethics is a comprehensive study of significant issues affecting health care and the ethics of health care from the perspective of Catholic theology. It aims to help Christian, and especially Catholic, health care professionals solve concrete problems in terms of principles rooted in scripture and tested by individual experience; however,... more...

  • Language in Useby Andrea E. Tyler; Mari Takada; Yiyoung Kim; Diana Marinova

    Georgetown University Press 2005; US$ 46.95

    Language in Use creatively brings together, for the first time, perspectives from cognitive linguistics, language acquisition, discourse analysis, and linguistic anthropology. The physical distance between nations and continents, and the boundaries between different theories and subfields within linguistics have made it difficult to recognize the... more...

  • Loyal Dissentby Charles E. Curran

    Georgetown University Press 2006; US$ 26.95

    Loyal Dissent is the candid and inspiring story of a Catholic priest and theologian who, despite being stripped of his right to teach as a Catholic theologian by the Vatican, remains committed to the Catholic Church. Over a nearly fifty-year career, Charles E. Curran has distinguished himself as the most well-known and the most controversial Catholic... more...

  • Telling Storiesby Deborah Schiffrin; Anna De Fina; Anastasia Nylund

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 49.95

    Narratives are fundamental to our lives: we dream, plan, complain, endorse, entertain, teach, learn, and reminisce through telling stories. They provide hopes, enhance or mitigate disappointments, challenge or support moral order and test out theories of the world at both personal and communal levels. It is because of this deep embedding of narrative... more...

  • School Board Battlesby Melissa M. Deckman

    Georgetown University Press 2004; US$ 39.95

    If there is a culture war taking place in the United States, one of the most interesting, if under-the-radar, battlegrounds is in local school board elections. Rarely does the pitch of this battle reach national attention, as it did in Kansas when the state school boardùled by several outspoken conservative Christiansùvoted to delete evolution... more...

  • Pews, Prayers, and Participationby Corwin E. Smidt

    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 28.95

    Is the "private" experience of religion counterproductive to engagement in public life? Does the "public" experience of religion contribute anything distinctive to civic engagement? Pews, Prayers, and Participation offers a fresh approach to key questions about what role religion plays in fostering civic responsibility in contemporary American... more...

  • Practical Decision Making in Health Care Ethicsby Raymond J. Devettere

    Georgetown University Press 2009; US$ 39.95

    For nearly fifteen years Practical Decision Making in Health Care Ethics has offered scholars and students a highly accessible and teachable alternative to the dominant principle-based theories in the field. Devettere’s approach is not based on an ethics of abstract obligations and duties, but, following Aristotle, on how to live a fulfilled and... more...

  • Of Little Faithby Amy E. Black

    Georgetown University Press 2004; US$ 24.95

    George W. Bush had planned to swear his oath of office with his hand on the Masonic Bible used by both his father and George Washington, however, due to the inclement weather, a family Bible was substituted. Almost immediately on taking office, President Bush made passage of "faith-based initiatives"—the government funding of religious charitable... more...
