A newly married Methodist minister, Larry Zellers, was serving as a missionary and teacher in a small South Korean town near the 38th parallel when he was captured by the North Koreans on June 25, 1950. Until his release in 1953, Zellers endured brutal conditions and inhumane treatment. Through his story, Zellers shows that, despite the opinion that POWs live only for themselves, many in the camps worked to help others and conducted themselves with honor. ´´This harrowing but inspiring account is especially absorbing.´´ Publishers Weekly ´´A chilling account of the suffering he and a group of fellow civilians endured during three years as prisoners of Communist North Korea.´´ Retired Officer Magazine ´´Provides a fascinating view into the minds of both captors and prisoners.´´ Bowling Green Daily News 1.

This book is a narrative study of the lives and experiences of sixty-eight Black collegians in a set of northern private colleges in the Midwest between 1945 and 1965. Through oral histories and archival material, this text documents and reflects on their experiences in the racially isolated, northern, rural towns in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Western Pennsylvania. This history illuminates both the empowerment of these collegians and the persistent challenges of enacting institutional values in the face of resistance from both outside and within. Stewart seeks to understand the nature of progress toward pluralistic diversity in college environments characterized by the paradox of racial homogeneity and interracial engagement. In this way, the complex interplay of social movements, institutional context, individual identities, and the experiences of marginalized students in postsecondary education are more effectively demonstrated. Dafina-Lazarus Stewart is Professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs at Bowling Green State University, USA, where ze researches diversity, equity, and justice in US higher education, particularly focused on student experiences, outcomes, and institutional transformation.

For many in our churches, and especially among both mainline and evan- gelical Protestants in North America, the answer to these questions is too o en a simple and straightforward no. Our age of specialization, of niche marketing, of in- dividual interests, of continued racial and economic segregation demands that we choose (but only if we really want to) speci c and singular locations, images and corporate logos, sounds and soundtracks. ere is little room today for common interest, common life, common belief, much less for common worship. We are not only bowling alone, but increasingly worshiping alone-even when we are in a congregation gathered for worship. Why risk moving against these strong social forces? Why waste our time and energy seeking what the dominant voices of our culture say is no longer, if ever it was, possible?
Delton Dowthitt, 16, had dropped out of ninth grade that spring and moved out of his mother´s home in Oak Ridge North. Dennis Dowthitt, 45, ran a shabby used car lot in nearby Humble. By contrast, Gracie Purnhagen, 16, and sister Tiffany, 9, came from a stable home. At about 8:45 p.m., Dennis Dowthitt´s white pickup truck cruised into the bowling alley parking lot and witnesses saw the Purnhagen girls get in. Dennis Dowthitt slid out of the truck and said, "I messed up." Delton and young Tiffany stood watching as Dennis Dowthitt pummeled Gracie to the ground, unsheathed his buck knife and cut her throat. Delton wrapped his mitts around the girl´s neck and squeezed until she fell unconscious. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scot Wilcox.
