African Values and Social Studies Education

Author: 

Galafa, Beaton, Lecturer in Education and Humanities, Millennium University (Malawi)

This monograph discusses the integration of traditional African values into social studies education in Malawi. It targets the curriculum as a fertile ground for breeding indigenous knowledge due to its relevance in the development of effective moral, ethical, and citizenship skills. The discussion occurs in the context of various studies on the paucity of an indigenous philosophy and the resulting dearth of local knowledge, which expose African education systems to Eurocentric values and ontologies.

Deism: A Rational Journey from Disbelief to the Existence of God

Author: 

Alvaro, Carlo, PhD, Associate Professor of Philosophy, CUNY New York City College of Technology

Credentials: 

Author of Ethical Veganism, Virtue Ethics, and The Great Soul (2019); Raw Veganism: The Philosophy of the Human Diet (2020); and The Book of Raw (2021)

It is often claimed that belief in God is based on faith, while non-belief is grounded in rationality. This claim is inaccurate. Moral philosopher Carlo Alvaro takes the reader through his philosophical journey—a journey taken with the absolute absence of faith. Through reasoning alone, and with an objective assessment of the classical theistic arguments, Deism takes the reader from disbelief to a particular version of deism. Deism discusses such arguments as the Kalam Cosmological, the asymmetry against the evil-god challenge, the anthropic principle, and the moral.

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.

New England Local Government: The Case of Connecticut

Author: 

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

Credentials: 

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

Local government in the New England states has historically been regarded as a style of government that most closely embodies the spirit of American democracy. Although models of local government vary from one town to the next, the common thread which unites all New England towns is that the people are empowered to choose their own form of government, and in doing so control their own destiny.

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D., Department of History, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)

Credentials: 

Author of Britain’s Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, Once Upon a Time in Biafra: Memories, Foreign Visitations, and Life Experiences in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, and British Women and the Nigerian Civil War

In this intrepid study, noted Nigerian historian Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus investigates the air war component of the Nigerian-Biafran War, a crucial postcolonial conflict in Africa. 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.
