The Revolutionary Art of Love: From Romantic Love to Global Compassion

Author: 

Briciu, Bianca, Assistant Professor of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality, Saint Paul University

The Revolutionary Art of Love: From Romantic Love to Global Compassion offers a complex description of love as a personal emotion and as an intersubjective, ethical experience of connection. Its purpose is to deconstruct cultural myths about love, proposing instead a framework for understanding love’s contribution to the well-being of individuals and social systems. The uniqueness of the book lies in its interdisciplinary scope, articulating love as a form of connection to the self, others, and the world in general.

Rose, Gary L., Ph.D.; Professor and Chair, Department of Government, Sacred Heart University

Author of Haywire: A Chronology of the 2016 Presidential Contest (2017), No Holds Barred: The 2012 Connecticut Senate Race (2013), Shaping A Nation: Twenty-Five Supreme Court Cases That Changed the United States (2010), and Connecticut in Crisis: Policy Challenges and the 2018 Contest for Governor

It focuses on the Biafra’s air operations against oil installations and facilities owned by multinational oil companies in Nigeria. In addition to exploring global airpower historiography, this study explores the tactical aspects of how the renewed air war changed the military equation of the conflict when both sides were at loggerheads in peace settlement and relief arrangements.

Eco-Literature: Contemporary Discourses

Author: 

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)

Credentials: 

Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

Awareness of eco-literature has recalled the central ideology of environmentalism - “to think globally and act locally.” As this volume shows, various tags of contemporary discourse have emerged, including transnational, cosmopolitan, hybridity, diaspora, and generally cultural. These concerns highlight such global environmental problems as biodiversity, climate change, and developing new forms of interconnectedness with local and regional communities. In this context, contemporary discourse becomes of immediate concern in understanding the environmental crisis.
