A Russian Mother [a novel]

Alain Bosquet, translated by Barbara Bray and with an afterword by Germaine Brée
At the core of A Russian Mother lies the profound ambivalence of two people who are chillingly remote yet obsessively attached.

The Latino Male: A Radical Redefinition

David T. Abalos

David Abalos shows how the traditional cultural stories—the male roles of the mujeriego (the womanizer), the macho, and the patriarch—are becoming unlivable. Too many men choose manipulation, power, or violence in response, in an effort to restore the old order. But there is an alternative, argues Abalos. Demonstrating  More >
