Thirty Days of Encouragement for the Fender Benders in Your Life is dedicated to the downtrodden, depressed, and those who have given up on life or are too tired to care. Everyone is a work in progress and as Christians, we all need each other, whether we like each other or not. As we reconcile ourselves within the Body of Christ, we become the army that the Lord needs to achieve His most important objective within the earth, (see Habakkuk 2:14). What is a fender bender? It is a minor collision between two automobiles. Each person reading this may be sitting there thinking that what has happened to him or her is no fender bender. Of course, there is enormous tragedy in this world that is much greater than a fender bender. Those can be called major collisions. There is, however, hope and comfort in the word of God for all things. If we view some of the less tragic events with a different perspective, we will see that they are fender benders. Most of the things that have such an emotional effect on us will not matter in a few months. Thirty Days of Encouragement for the Fender Benders in Your Life will help the reader see the magnitude of God’s love and His heart for you, His dear child. Thirty Days of Encouragement for the Fender Benders in Your Life may be used as a springboard of hope and healing for the challenges faced each day.

Cause is a problematic concept in social science, as in all fields of knowledge. We organise information in terms of cause and effect to impose order on the world, but this can impede a more sophisticated understanding. In his latest book, Richard Ned Lebow reviews understandings of cause in physics and philosophy and concludes that no formulation is logically defensible and universal in its coverage. This is because cause is not a feature of the world but a cognitive shorthand we use to make sense of it. In practice, causal inference is always rhetorical and must accordingly be judged on grounds of practicality. Lebow offers a new approach - 'inefficient causation' - that is constructivist in its emphasis on the reasons people have for acting as they do, but turns to other approaches to understand the aggregation of their behaviour. This novel approach builds on general understandings and idiosyncratic features of context.

While the pimps and players of blaxploitation movies dominated inner-city theaters, good old boys with muscle under their hoods and moonshine in their trunks roared onto drive-in screens throughout rural America. The popularity of these "hick flicks" grew throughout the '70s, and they attained mass acceptance with the 1977 release of Smokey and the Bandit. It marked the heyday of these regional favorites, but within a few short years, changing economic realities within the movie business and the collapse of the drive-in market would effectively spell the end of the so-called hixploitation genre. This comprehensive study of the hixploitation genre is the first of its kind. Chapters are divided into three major topics. Part One deals with "good ol' boys," from redneck sheriffs, to moonshiners, to honky-tonk heroes and beyond. Part Two explores road movies, featuring back-road racers, truckers and everything in between. Part Three, "In the Woods," covers movies about all manner of beasts--some of them human--populating the swamps and woodlands of rural America. Film stills are included, and an afterword examines both the decline and metamorphosis of the genre. A filmography, bibliography and index accompany the text.
