Perception of Russia in the Baltic Countries: Memory, Identity, and Conflict

As a basic unit of sociolinguistic inquiry, the family context has been traditionally placed at a central position in its key role when it comes to transmitting a particular language from generation to generation (Fishman 1991).

Sexual Abuse and Sexual Attitudes in Adolescence: The Moderating Role of Personal Religion

Research has drawn attention to the adverse effects of sexual abuse. Yet, few studies have addressed whether personal religion can reduce such adverse effects. Using 3,000 teenagers affiliated with an evangelical church in USA, I find that sexual abuse leads to increased sexual activities in heterosexual and homosexual relationships. More importantly, there is little evidence […]
