African and African-American Religions
Some thirty to forty percent of Africans practice traditional religions. many of which survived transportation into the West with the slave trade by combining with elements of Christianity. These traditional religions are often distinguished by dramatic features. including masks. costumes. dancing and singing; they emphasize oral traditions rather than literary scriptures; and they include magical components such as sacrifices and spirit mediums. They affirm that all reality flows from one substance or principle. which manifests in many different gods and values; gods. therefore. are both good and evil. A „trickster” deity often expresses this fundamental ambiguity of life. The Religion. Scriptures. and Spirituality Series describes the beliefs. religious practices. and the spiritual and moral commitments of the world’s great religious traditions. It also describes a religion’s way of understanding scripture. identifies its outstanding thinkers. and discusses its attitude and relationship to society.

Prince of the City
In the dark days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Rudy Giuliani established himself as „America’s mayor.” This first post-9/11 account of his career shows how Giuliani’s successes in New York set a promising example for the rejuvenation of our major cities. As one who has worked with him as well as studied him. Fred Siegel regards Giuliani as a shrewd tactician and artist of the possible. who could have stepped out of the pages of Machiavelli’s The Prince. A self-promoting. self-absorbed man. the mayor made his enormous ego and tribal ethos serve the city’s well-being. promoting ideals that transcended New York’s ethnic politics and business as usual. The Prince of the City is at once a fascinating character study. a history of New York over the last forty years. and a classic inquiry into the issue of how cities thrive or die.
