9780156027373: The Middle of Everywhere: Helping Refugees Enter the American Community

The Middle of Everywhere moves beyond the headlines, into the hearts and souls of refugees as they seek sanctuary in a foreign land. Pipher shows us the effects of trauma on identity, perceives the characteristics of strong people who survive terrible events and go on to build better lives. These are the lessons to be learned from the people in this book: a better understanding of who we are, and a richer understanding of where we are.

Review:

PRAISE FOR "REVIVING OPHELIA""An important book . . . Pipher shines high-beam headlights on the world ofteenage girls."--"Los Angeles Times""Mary Pipher's "Reviving Ophelia" has the combination just right. [She] offers commonsensical, unthreatening solutions. Readers find Ophelia both heartbreaking and exhilarating."--"Time"PRAISE FOR "THE SHELTER OF EACH OTHER""Mary Pipher is that rarity in these days of culture wars: She can talk about values without self-righteousness. She reclaims some common sense in the dialogue about family."--"The Seattle Times""A canny mix of optimism and practicality gives Pipher's fans a way to resist theworst of the culture around them and substitute the best of themselves."--"Newsweek"PRAISE FOR "ANOTHER COUNTRY""[The] combination of cultural and psychological factors is this excellent book's greatest strength. . . . She is especially acute at spotting pressure points where culture, both past and present, collides cruelly with individual emotional needs."--"The Washington Post""Packs an emotional wallop . . . [Pipher] writes about the very topics, the veryfears, that many readers have dodged their whole lives."--"Houston Chronicle"

Book Description HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the past decade, Mary Pipher has been a great source of wisdom, helping us to better understand our family members. Now she connects us with the newest members of the American family--refugees. In cities all over the country, refugees arrive daily. Lost Boys from Sudan, survivors from Kosovo, families fleeing Afghanistan and Vietnam: they come with nothing but the desire to experience the American dream. Their endurance in the face of tragedy and their ability to hold on to the virtues of family, love, and joy are a lesson for Americans. Their stories will make you laugh and weep--and give you a deeper understanding of the wider world in which we live. The Middle of Everywhere moves beyond the headlines into the homes of refugees from around the world. Working as a cultural broker, teacher, and therapist, Mary Pipher has once again opened our eyes--and our hearts--to those with whom we share the future. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780156027373
