270 NEUSTEIN, AMY (EDITOR). Tempest In The Temple: Jewish Communities And Child Sex Scandals.
h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
A brave collection of essays by rabbis, educators, lawyers, and psychotherapists on sexual abuse within the Jewish clergy. In 2006, New York magazine and ABC's Nightline both featured stories dealing with rabbis who had abused children entrusted to them. Then, at the start of 2007, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency published a five-part series on sexual abuse by rabbis who led congregations, taught religious studies, and ran youth groups. The series soon was picked up by Jewish newspapers nationwide. Despite this spate of media coverage, there has been a dearth of scholarly material investigating sexual abuse within the Jewish clergy. Tempest in the Temple brings together fifteen practicing rabbis, educators, pastoral counselors, sociologists, mental health professionals, and legal advocates for abuse victims, each of whom offer insights into different facets of the problem. This book is divided into three sections. The first section, "When the Vow Breaks," describes rabbis who break their "vows" through active pedophilia. The second section, "Sacrificing Victims," illuminates the community dynamics surrounding abuse: how a community unwittingly contributes to the cover-up of abuse; why victims of abuse are all too often ignored or cast off by their religious communities; and the mechanisms by which powerful religious institutions protect their own. The third section, "Let Me Know the Way," addresses how Jewish communities can overcome the ignorance, bias, and corruption associated with clergy sexual abuse. Solutions—some already successful, others yet to be tried—are explored here. Tempest in the Temple offers an open discussion of some of the most deeply rooted fears in the Jewish community. While it is the first book to bring child sex scandals in temples and synagogues to light, its purpose is not to blame or shame Jews but to examine this horrific problem with as much clarity and precision as possible so that the best remedies can be offered to the community as a whole. "Tempest is a testament to how we can protect our children and make our Jewish communities the safe and nurturing places we want them to be."—Esther Giller, President and Director of the Sidran Institute, Baltimore "Neustein's work is a most timely volume that serves educators, parents, clergy, and mental health professionals who face the challenge of protecting children from child sexual abuse."—Debbie Fox, Director of Children and Family Services, Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles "The veil of secrecy shrouding clergy-perpetrated sexual abuse has been torn asunder in the past decade. Neustein's thoughtful and pragmatic collection provides practical interventions to assist clergy of all religious faiths."—Terence A. Keane, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Boston University, and Robert A. McMackin, Massachusetts Department of Public Health Amy Neustein, Ph.D., is a sociologist, researcher, lecturer, and author of many scholarly articles on child sexual abuse, sociology of religion, and speech technology. She is the co-author of From Madness to Mutiny (NUP, 2005), and is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Speech Technology. She is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse.

279 OPIE, JOHN. Virtual America: Sleepwalking Through Paradise.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2010. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Virtual America traces the complex relationship between Americans, technology, and their environment as it has unfolded over the past several centuries. Throughout history Americans have constructed mental pictures of unique places, such as the American West, that have taken on more authority than the actual gritty landscapes. This disconnect from reality is magnified by the new world of virtual realities on the computer screen, where personal immersion in interactive simulations becomes the "default" environment. Virtual America identifies the connections (or lack thereof) between our individual selves, an American identity, and the geography "out there." John Opie examines what he calls First Nature (the natural world), Second Nature (metropolitan infrastructure/built environment), and Third Nature (virtual reality in cyberspace). He also explores how Americans have historically dreamed about a better life in daily, ordinary existence and then fulfilled it through the Engineered America of our built environment, the Consumer America of material well-being, and the Triumphal America of our conviction that we are the world's exceptional model. But these dream worlds have also encouraged placelessness and thus indifference to our dwelling in home ground. Finally, Opie explores Last Nature (a sense of place) and argues that when we identify an authentic place, we can locate authenticity of self—a reification of place and self—by their connectedness.
