Cedarville, OhioGerson Moreno-Riano, Cedarville University Assistant Professor of Political Science, has turned two years of extensive research into a new book, titled "Political Tolerance, Culture, and the Individual." Published by The Edwin Mellen Press, an international publisher of scholarly research, this book is expected to change academic paradigms concerning the cause of political tolerance and behavior. "Political Tolerance" suggests that cultural interactions between individuals, rather than inner psychological characteristics and tendencies, determine political tolerance and behavior. This new take on the effects of cultural factors is expected to provide a new, stimulating approach to viewing human beings and their behaviors. The book will hit shelves in February 2003, but can already be found at www.amazon.com. A graduate of Cedarville University and the University of Cincinnati, Moreno-Riano has been teaching at Cedarville since 1999. He will soon add "editor" to his list of job descriptions with the release of "Time and Eternity: The Medieval Discourse," part of the International Medieval Research series by Brepols Press (Belgium). Located in Cedarville, Ohio, Cedarville University is an accredited Baptist university of arts, sciences, professional, and graduate programs.
