Eduarda Aivara dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” ir dzejnieka devītais krājums, kurā apkopoti un sakārtoti pēdējo piecu gadu laikā tapušie dzejoļi. Laiks nestāv uz vietas. Dažs cilvēks sakrītas, dažs piebriest, dažs uzkumpst, dažs sportodams staltāks top. Vecās drānas vairs neder, un jāmeklē atkal no jauna. Dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” rāda, ka atkal ir izdevies atrast izteiksmi, kas der kā uzlieta. Dzejas forma netraucē, to pat it kā nemaz nemana, un lasītāju tieši apņem gan īsta brieduma skaidrība, gan joprojām jauneklīgā spēja ļauties brīnumiem, gan rimta dzīves nenovēršamā traģisma apjausma. Jānis Elsbergs Savukārt autors norāda: “”Parādībās” esmu ievērojis savu kompozīcijas principu, radot kulminācijas ar satura un māksliniecisko izteiksmes līdzekļu palīdzību. Arī šajā grāmatā būtisku vietu ieņem dzejoļi ar gariem virsrakstiem, mans jaunievedums. Šādas formas dzejoļiem nav analogu ne tikai šeit, bet arī, cik man zināms, citur pasaulē.”

From volunteers ready to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border to the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children who have marched in support of immigrant rights, the United States has witnessed a surge of involvement in immigration activism. In The Latino Threat, Leo R.
Chavez critically investigates the media stories about and recent experiences of immigrants to show how prejudices and stereotypes have been used to malign an entire immigrant population—and to define what it means to be an American.
Pundits—and the media at large—nurture and perpetuate the notion that Latinos, particularly Mexicans, are an invading force bent on reconquering land once considered their own. Through a perceived refusal to learn English and an "out of control" birthrate, many say that Latinos are destroying the American way of life. But Chavez questions these assumptions and offers facts to counter the myth that Latinos are a threat to the security and prosperity of our nation. His breakdown of the "Latino threat" contests this myth's basic tenets, challenging such well-known authors as Samuel Huntington, Pat Buchanan, and Peter Brimelow. Chavez concludes that citizenship is not just about legal definitions, but about participation in society. Deeply resonant in today's atmosphere of exclusion, Chavez's insights offer an alternative and optimistic view of the vitality and future of our country.
Four strong women: Anjali, an Indo-Canadian single mother who eagerly accepts an African posting with her non-profit organization; Grace, her dedicated but dominating colleague, who opposes her; Fatimah, a farmer ousted from her home and fertile farmland, whom Anjali befriends; and Mary, Anjali’s kindly maid, who must secure the future of her son, Gabriel. In Land for Fatimah, Anjali involves herself in Fatimah’s quest to find new land for her scattered community, and is thrown into a web of intrigue that upturns her safe, orderly world. Capturing the warmth and vitality of Africa, illuminating everyday heroism, the novel explores expat life, the forced displacement of the poor and the complexities of development.
