"Hot Springs, New Mexico, Ain't That Any More" was one of the headlines on April 4, 1950, in the Gallup Independent. As a publicity stunt, Ralph Edwards had invited a town to change its name to "Truth or Consequences," the name of his popular radio quiz show, and Hot Springs agreed to do so. Since the late 1800s, the area has attracted health seekers to bathe in and drink from the area's hot mineral springs. The region is home to Elephant Butte Dam and lake, completed in 1916, which remains one of the largest irrigation dams in the United States. Carrie Tingley Crippled Children's Hospital, built in 1937 by New Mexico governor Clyde Tingley, utilized the natural hot mineral waters to treat children with polio. From the placement of the Hot Springs Bathhouse and Commercial District on the State and National Register of Historic Places to the centennial celebration of Elephant Butte Dam, Truth or Consequences continues to grow and develop while still honoring its heritage.

A 2002 Christianity Today Book of the Year! Postmodernism. The term slowly filtered into our vocabularies about three decades ago and now permeates most discussions of the humanities. Those who tout the promises and perils of this twentieth-century intellectual movement have filled many a bookshelf. And in a previous book, Postmodernizing the Faith: Evangelical Responses to the Challenge of Postmodernism, Millard J. Erickson provided his own summary of several evangelical responses--both positive and negative--to the movement. Now in this book Erickson offers his own promised in-depth analysis and constructive response. What are the intellectual roots of postmodernism? Who are its most prominent exponents? What can we learn from their critique of modernism? Where do their assumptions and analyses fail us? Where do we go from here? What might a post-postmodernism look like? Erickson addresses these issues with characteristic discernment, clarity and evenhandedness, neither dismissing the insights of postmodern thought nor succumbing uncritically to its allure. An important book for all who are concerned with commending Christian truth to the culture within which we live.

Contemporary literary theory takes truth and meaning to be dependent on shared conventions in a community of discourse and views authors' intentions as irrelevant to interpretation. This view, argues Reed Way Dasenbrock, owes much to Anglo-American analytic philosophy as developed in the 1950s and 1960s by such thinkers as Austin and Kuhn, but it ignores more recent work by philosophers like Davidson and Putnam, who have mounted a counterattack on this earlier conventionalism. This book draws on current analytic philosophy to resuscitate the notion of objective truth and intentionalist models of meaning and interpretation, thereby moving beyond the antifoundationalism of postmodern theory. It addresses the work of Rorty and Fish as representative of literary conventionalism, discusses the futility of Derrida's anti-intentionalism, and shows how poststructuralist thinkers like Althusser and Foucault have contributed to the "new thematics" of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation that dominates literary theory today. Examining the counter-arguments of conventionalists to have their theory judged by its consequences, Dasenbrock shows how damaging this antiobjectivism and anti-intentionalism have been for literary studies.

Popularly known today as a radio and television quiz program designed to humiliate its contestants through practical jokes, Truth or Consequences inspired imitators by raising the bar for audience participation. Created by Ralph Edwards, the program quickly became known for contestants facing off against custard pies and seltzer bottles, all while it attained a success with charitable contributions which remains unparalleled in the history of broadcasting entertainment. Along with raising millions of dollars for various health agencies and wartime projects, a half-billion dollars in “E” Bonds were sold through the Truth or Consequences broadcasts. Over the years, Truth or Consequences was instrumental in establishing both The Jimmy Fund and the American Heart Association, while the American Cancer Society and the March of Dimes benefited financially through a series of ongoing contests. Following the Second World War, the series served as a public service message for rehabilitating war veterans, setting the stage for another successful Edwards program, This is Your Life. In 1948, Jack Benny secretly agreed to participate in The Walking Man contest, ultimately positioning the quiz program into a national phenomenon. Two years later, the small town of Hot Springs, New Mexico agreed to permanently change its name to Truth or Consequences, making headlines across the globe. Besides the basic history of the quiz program, from concept/origin to the transition from radio to television, this book documents many stories of contestants and charitable contributions proving that Truth or Consequences was not just an ordinary quiz program. Also included are more than 200 never-before-published photographs, recollections from contestants and crew, and a detailed episode guide.

Scotland First is a unique book about Scottish and UK politics written by a man who was at the heart of Britain's constitutional upheaval and the turbulent early years of the Scottish Parliament. Henry McLeish explains how growing up as a member of a Fife mining family laid the foundations for 30 years in elected politics. In this controversial autobiography, McLeish reveals inside information about the Blair government, relates the behind-the-scenes battles for Scottish devolution, and details the clash of politics and personalities during this period. He tells the real truth about the White Paper that rewrote history and the behavior of Scottish MPs at Westminster, and comes clean about the scandal surrounding the spiralling cost of the Holyrood Parliament building. In this candid, no holds-barred account, McLeish also gives his radical and controversial blueprint for politics in Scotland, the UK, and the future for 21st-century politics.

Gender Matters: Truth and Consequences employs an intersectional feminist approach to introduce students to the various ways feminist thinkers discuss gender, sexuality, sex, and more. It encourages them to consider how these views may be manifested in their everyday surroundings from the classroom to the coffee shop. The curated readings are organized into three sections addressing gender theory, play and gender studies, and the unavoidable consequences of gender itself. Featuring the writing of Simone de Beauvoir, bell hooks, Gloria Anzaldua, and other seminal figures, the anthology tackles issues such as the patriarchal system, the meaning of being gendered, pornography, and the treatment of transgender and intersexed individuals. Gender Matters encourages readers to challenge the "truth" of gender-related definitions, the ways in which people play into these truths, and the consequences of passively accepting them. Reflection activities in each chapter create the opportunity for students to deeply consider how all of these issues and topics play out in their own lives. Gender Matters is ideal for classes in gender studies, sociology, and gender issues. Sarah M. Pitcher earned both her master's degree and her Ph.D. in sociology at Syracuse University in New York. A professor of sociology at City College in San Diego, Dr. Pitcher regularly teaches classes in introductory sociology, gender studies, social problems, sociological theory, and globalization and social change, with the understanding that sociology begins and ends with experience. Throughout her over 20 years of teaching, she has worked to make sociology not only fun and engaging for students, but also a form of active critical thought about our social world. In addition to her work in the classroom, she is an honors program advisor, as well as the advisor to the Visionary Feminists Club.
