Joseph Kony has been called "the worst criminal in the world". He has been charged with crimes against humanity (murder, mutilation, slavery) and, along with his army - the LRA, has abducted more than 30,000 children for use as child soldiers and sex slaves. This edition of "Stopping Joseph Kony: Fighting for Peace and Justice in a Viral World," is a well researched and concise look at who Joseph Kony is, what has been done to stop him, and how he will ultimately be stopped.
This definitive anthology casts Sinophone studies as the study of Sinitic-language cultures born of colonial and postcolonial influences. Its transnational and comparative essays by such authors as Rey Chow, Ha Jin, Leo Ou-fan Lee, Ien Ang, Wei-ming Tu, and David Wang address debates concerning the nature of Chineseness while introducing readers to essential readings in Tibetan, Malaysian, Taiwanese, French, Caribbean, and American Sinophone literatures. By placing Sinophone cultures at the crossroads of multiple empires, this anthology richly demonstrates the transformative power of multiculturalism and multilingualism, and by examining the place-based cultural and social practices of Sinitic-language communities in their historical contexts beyond "China proper," it effectively refutes the diasporic framework. Adding new, non-Han-centric dimensions to conceptions of Chinese citizenship and ethnic identity, this book is an invaluable companion for courses in Asian, postcolonial, empire, and ethnic studies, as well as world and comparative literatures.
