Israel, Diaspora, and the Routes of National Belonging

Product : Israel, Diaspora, and the Routes of National Belonging
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Many diasporic Jews have strong ties to Israel, but what does a diasporic nationalism mean, and is it necessarily tied to territory? Over the course of four years, Jasmin Habib was a participant observer on tours of Israel organized for diaspora Jews as well as at North American community events focusing on Israel and Israel-diaspora relations. During this time, Habib conducted extensive interviews with tourists and community members. The result is a startlingly honest, theoretically rich, and detailed analysis of official tour narratives and tourist interactions at a range of Israeli archaeological, historical, and military sites, as well as back home in North America.In this first ethnographic account of North American diaspora Jews imagining and experiencing Israel, Habib blends anthropological, historical, and cultural studies theories together in an analysis of diaspora nationalism that has broad implications. Reflecting on her personal history as a peace activist of mixed Jewish and Palestinian parentage, Habib looks at community events in North America that celebrate the attachment and sense of obligation to Israel and Israeli Jews, and shares community members'' multiple dialogues on the conflict between Israel and Palestine. What emerges from this compassionate exploration is Habib''s provocative contention that much of the existing literature about North American Jews and their relationship to Israel ignores their diverse reactions to official narratives and perpetuates an official silence surrounding the destructive aspects of nationalist sentiments. As a result of this silence, Habib argues, Jewish studies has been unable to assert disciplinary autonomy from Zionist theory, and modernism, nation-building, and national territory have not been interrogated as analytical categories in these new geopolitical contexts.

Description : Perhaps Brazil''s most influential and beloved composer and musician, Chico Buarque is also a highly praised poet, playwright, and novelist. In Budapest, Buarque introduces the story of a ghostwriter who immerses himself in the Hungarian language. Josi Costa lives in Rio de Janeiro. Fated to remain in the shadows of his illustrious clients, Costa breaks free of this fate and spontaneously buys a ticket to Budapest. In the city by the Danube, he falls in love with a strangely enchanting woman named Kriska, who offers to teach him the Magyar language in the most intimate of ways. First, however, he must observe the old proverb There is no life outside Hungary and abandon his thoughts of samba, sunbathers on Ipanema, Sugarloaf Mountain, and his wife in Rio, to turn himself over to a strange, hallucinogenic world of pumpkin rolls, late-night discos in old Buda, endless bottles of Trojak wine, and, of course, Kriska, the willful seductress and disciplinarian who is as hard to fathom and tame as the language she speaks. But what will become of Josi, now Zsoze, when his time in Budapest comes to an end and life as he knows it is turned upside down?

Manager's Guide to Excellence in Public Relations and Communication Management

Product : Manager's Guide to Excellence in Public Relations and Communication Management
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book reports findings of a three-nation study of public relations and communication management sponsored by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Research Foundation. The Excellence Study provides communication managers and public relations practitioners with information critical to their own professional growth, and supplies organizations with tools that help them communicate more effectively and build beneficial relations with key publics. Communication excellence is a powerful idea of sweeping scope that applies to all organizations -- large or small -- that need to communicate effectively with publics on whom the organization''s survival and growth depend. The essential elements of excellent communication are the same for corporations, not-for-profit organizations, government agencies, and professional/trade associations. And they are applicable on a global basis.The study identifies three spheres of communication excellence. These spheres consider the overall function and role of communication in organizations, and define the organization of this book. They are:* the core or inner sphere of communication excellence -- theknowledge baseof the communication department,* theshared expectationsof top communicators and senior managers about the function and role of communication, and* the organization''s culture -- the larger context that either nurtures or impedes communication excellence.This text also examines communication excellence as demonstrated in specific programs developed for specific publics.

Beyond The Culture Tours: Studies In Teaching And Learning With Culturally Diverse Texts

Product : Beyond The Culture Tours: Studies In Teaching And Learning With Culturally Diverse Texts
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In calling this book Beyond the Culture Tours, the authors bring the reader''s attention to a set of issues in the teaching of literature and culture. The Culture Tour is an old concept in the West, dating back to the seventeenth century. The educated young man -- it was an exclusively male project at first -- was expected to round off his education with the Grand Tour. This meant a visit to the major sites on the European continent, particularly Greece and Rome, and occasionally to the Holy Land. The object was to have a first-hand view of these monuments, and looking at them alone brought people the name of being cultured or well-traveled. As the idea spread in the early part of the twentieth century, it allowed for the vicarious tour rather than the actual one. Students were asked to look at collections of art or reproductions of art work, listen to concerts or later recordings, and to read certain classical works drawn from what has come to be known as the canon. The point of this form of education was that exposure to these works in itself formed a version of the Grand Tour. The basic idea behind the tour approach is that exposure to a culture in books is like travel to an ethnic theme park. This volume looks beyond the tour approach and reports on the results of a four-year project undertaken by a research team from the National Center for Research in the Learning and Teaching of Literature. Their intent was to study the teaching and impact of multicultural literature. The team examined how students approached texts that either came from their culture or from another, and how teachers perceived the students, the literature, and their role. This volume details various aspects of their findings.

Pueblo Gods And Myths

Product : Pueblo Gods And Myths
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Here is a thorough, and long-needed, presentation of the nature of the Pueblo gods and myths. The Pueblo Indians, which include the Hopi, Zuni, and Keres groups, and their ancestors are closely bound to the Plateau region of the United States, comprising much of the area in Utah, Colorado, and-especially in recent years-New Mexico and Arizona.The principal god of the Hopi tribe was and is Masau'u, the god of death. Masau'u is also a god of life in many of its essentials. There is an unmistakable analogy between Masau'u and the Christian Devil, and between Masau'u and the Greek god Hermes, who guided dead souls on their journey to the nether world. Mr. Tyler has drawn many useful comparisons between the religions of the Pueblos and the Greeks. Because there is a widespread knowledge of the Greek gods and their ways, the author writes, many people will thus be at ease with the Pueblo gods and myths.Of utmost importance is the final chapter of the book, which relates Pueblo cosmology to contemporary Western thought.The Pueblos are men and women who have faced, and are facing, problems common to all mankind. The response of the Pueblos to their challenges has been tempered by the role of religion in their lives. This account of their epic struggle to accommodate themselves and their society to the cosmic order is must reading for historians, ethnologists, students of comparative religion, and for all who take an interest in the role of religious devotion in their own lives.

Strangers in Blood:  Fur Trade Company Families in Indian Country

Product : Strangers in Blood: Fur Trade Company Families in Indian Country
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : For two centuries (1670-1870), English, Scottish, and Canadian fur traders voyaged the myriad waterways of Rupert's Land, the vast territory charted to the Hudson's Bay Company and later splintered among five Canadian provinces and four American states. The knowledge and support of northern Native peoples were critical to the newcomer's survival and success. With acquaintance and alliance came intermarriage, and the unions of European traders and Native women generated thousands of descendants.Jennifer Brown's Strangers in Blood is the first work to look systematically at these parents and their children. Brown focuses on Hudson's Bay Company officers and North West Company wintering partners and clerks-those whose relationships are best known from post journals, correspondence, accounts, and wills. The durability of such families varied greatly. Settlers, missionaries, European women, and sometimes the courts challenged fur trade marriages. Some officers' Scottish and Canadian relatives dismissed Native wives and Indian progeny as illegitimate. Traders who took these ties seriously were obliged to defend them, to leave wills recognizing their wives and children, and to secure their legal and social status-to prove that they were kin, not strangers in blood.Brown illustrates that the lives and identities of these children were shaped by factors far more complex than blood. Sons and daughters diverged along paths affected by gender. Some descendants became Metis and espoused Metis nationhood under Louis Riel. Others rejected or were never offered that course-they passed into white or Indian communities or, in some instances, identified themselves (without prejudice) as half breeds. The fur trade did not coalesce into a single society. Rather, like Rupert's Land, it splintered, and the historical consequences have been with us ever since.

The Road To Appomattox

Product : The Road To Appomattox
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Originally published forty years ago, Bell Irvin Wiley's The Road to Appomattox marked one of the first efforts by a Civil War scholar to identify the internal causes of the South's defeat. Today this elegant little book remains one of the most penetrating, thought-provoking works on the subject. In the book's three chapters, Wiley treats three broad reasons for the failure of the Confederacy: weak political leadership, low morale among the populace, and four internal influences in the South. Those four shortcomings stemmed from traits apparently endemic to southerners in general, Wiley explains, and they included disharmony among and between political and military leaders; the government's failure to provide adequate public information systems; rigidity in outlook and course of action; and poor judgment, especially of the North's strength, the South's own strength, and Europe's dependence on cotton. Recent years have witnessed a number of significant studies dealing with Confederate defeat, particularly with the failings of Davis as war leader and with the complex issue of the South's dedication to the cause. Wiley was one of the first historians to raise these issues and discuss then trenchantly. Those familiar with The Road to Appomattox will cheer the reissue of this resonant work; first-time readers will see why.

Passage of Darkness:  The Ethnobiology of the Haitian Zombie

Product : Passage of Darkness: The Ethnobiology of the Haitian Zombie
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In 1982, Harvard-trained ethnobotanist Wade Davis traveled into the Haitian countryside to research reports of zombies--the infamous living dead of Haitian folklore. A report by a team of physicians of a verifiable case of zombification led him to try to obtain the poison associated with the process and examine it for potential medical use.Interdisciplinary in nature, this study reveals a network of power relations reaching all levels of Haitian political life. It sheds light on recent Haitian political history, including the meteoric rise under Duvalier of the Tonton Macoute. By explaining zombification as a rational process within the context of traditional Vodoun society, Davis demystifies one of the most exploited of folk beliefs, one that has been used to denigrate an entire people and their religion.

Women's History And Ancient History

Product : Women's History And Ancient History
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This collection of essays explores the lives and roles of women in antiquity. A recurring theme is the relationship between private and public, and many of the essays find that women''s public roles develop as a result of their private lives, specifically their family relationships.Essays on Hellenistic queens and Spartan and Roman women document how women exerted political power—usually, but not always, through their relationship to male leaders—and show how political upheaval created opportunities for them to exercise powers previously reserved for men. Essays on the writings of Sappho and Nossis focus on the interaction between women''s public and private discourses. The collection also includes discussion of Athenian and Roman marriage and the intrusion of the state into the sexual lives of Greek, Roman, and Jewish women as well as an investigation of scientific opinion about female physiology.The contributors are Sarah B. Pomeroy, Jane McIntosh Snyder, Marilyn M. Skinner, Cynthia B. Patterson, Ann Ellis Hanson, Lesley Dean-Jones, Natalie Boymel Kampen, Mary Taliaferro Boatwright, and Shaye J.D. Cohen.

Strangers Within the Realm:  Cultural Margins of the First British Empire

Product : Strangers Within the Realm: Cultural Margins of the First British Empire
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Shedding new light on British expansion in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, this collection of essays examines how the first British Empire was received and shaped by its subject peoples in Scotland, Ireland, North America, and the Caribbean.An introduction surveys British imperial historiography and provides a context for the volume as a whole. The essays focus on specific ethnic groups—Native Americans, African-Americans, Scotch-Irish, and Dutch and Germans—and their relations with the British, as well as on the effects of British expansion in particular regions—Ireland, Scotland, Canada, and the West Indies. A conclusion assesses the impact of the North American colonies on British society and politics.Taken together, these essays represent a new kind of imperial history—one that portrays imperial expansion as a dynamic process in which the oulying areas, not only the English center, played an important role in the development and character of the Empire. The collection interpets imperial history broadly, examining it from the perspective of common folk as well as elites and discussing the clash of cultures in addition to political disputes. Finally, by examining shifting and multiple frontiers and by drawing parallels between outlying provinces, these essays move us closer to a truly integrated story that links the diverse ethnic experiences of the first British Empire.The contributors are Bernard Bailyn, Philip D. Morgan, Nicholas Canny, Eric Richards, James H. Merrell, A. G. Roeber, Maldwyn A. Jones, Michael Craton, J. M. Bumsted, and Jacob M. Price.

Yankee West:  Community Life On The Michigan Frontier

Product : Yankee West: Community Life On The Michigan Frontier
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Susan Gray explores community formation among New England migrants to the Upper Midwest in the generation before the Civil War. Focusing on Kalamazoo County in southwestern Michigan, she examines how ''Yankees'' moving west reconstructed familiar communal institutions on the frontier while confronting forces of profound socioeconomic change, particularly the rise of the market economy and the commercialization of agriculture. Gray argues that Yankee culture was a type of ethnic identity that was transplanted to the Midwest and reshaped there into a new regional identity. In chapters on settlement patterns, economic exchange, the family, religion, and politics, Gray traces the culture that the migrants established through their institutions as a defense against the uncertainty of the frontier. She demonstrates that although settlers sought rapid economic development, they remained wary of the threat that the resulting spirit of competition posed to their communal ideals. As isolated settlements developed into flourishing communities linked to eastern markets, however, Yankee culture was transformed. What was once a communal culture became a class culture, appropriated by a newly formed rural bourgeoisie to explain their success as the triumphant emergence of the Midwest and to identify their region as true America.

People's Welfare:  Law And Regulation In Nineteenth-century America

Product : People's Welfare: Law And Regulation In Nineteenth-century America
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Much of today''s political rhetoric decries the welfare state and our maze of government regulations. Critics hark back to a time before the state intervened so directly in citizens'' lives. In The People''s Welfare, William Novak refutes this vision of a stateless past by documenting America''s long history of government regulation in the areas of public safety, political economy, public property, morality, and public health. Challenging the myth of American individualism, Novak recovers a distinctive nineteenth-century commitment to shared obligations and public duties in a well-regulated society.Novak explores the by-laws, ordinances, statutes, and common law restrictions that regulated almost every aspect of America''s society and economy, including fire regulations, inspection and licensing rules, fair marketplace laws, the moral policing of prostitution and drunkenness, and health and sanitary codes. Based on a reading of more than one thousand court cases in addition to the leading legal and political texts of the nineteenth century, The People''s Welfare demonstrates the deep roots of regulation in America and offers a startling reinterpretation of the history of American governance.

From Prejudice To Persecution: A History Of Austrian Anti-semitism

Category : Books>History>Jewish
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : According to Simon Wiesenthal, nearly half of the crimes associated with the Holocaust were committed by Austrians, who comprised just 8.5 percent of the population of Hitler''s Greater German Reich. Bruce Pauley''s book explains this phenomenon by providing a history of Austrian anti-Semitism and Jewish responses to it from the Middle Ages to the present, with a particular focus on the period from 1914 to 1938. In contrast to works that view anti-Semitism as an inherent national characteristic, his account identifies many sources and varieties of the anti-Semitic sentiment that pervaded Austrian society on the eve of the Holocaust.

Product : Opium War, 1840-1842: Barbarians In The Celestial Empire In The Early Part Of The Nineteenth Century And The War By Which They Fo
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book tells the fascinating story of the war between England and China that delivered Hong Kong to the English, forced the imperial Chinese government to add four ports to Canton as places in which foreigners could live and trade, and rendered irreversible the process that for almost a century thereafter distinguished western relations with this quarter of the globe—the process that is loosely termed the opening of China.Originally published by UNC Press in 1975, Peter Ward Fay''s study was the first to treat extensively the opium trade from the point of production in India to the point of consumption in China and the first to give both Protestant and Catholic missionaries their due; it remains the most comprehensive account of the first Opium War through western eyes. In a new preface, Fay reflects on the relationship between the events described in the book and Hong Kong''s more recent history.

Women's Identities at War:  Gender, Motherhood, and Politics in Britain and France During the First World War

Product : Women's Identities at War: Gender, Motherhood, and Politics in Britain and France During the First World War
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : There are few moments in history when the division between the sexes seems as natural as during wartime: men go off to the war front, while women stay behind on the home front. But the very notion of the home front was an invention of the First World War, when, for the first time, home and domestic became adjectives that modified the military term front. Such an innovation acknowledged the significant and presumably new contributions of civilians, especially women, to the war effort.Yet, as Susan Grayzel argues, throughout the war, traditional notions of masculinity and femininity survived, primarily through the maintenance of--and indeed reemphasis on--soldiering and mothering as the core of gender and national identities. Drawing on sources that range from popular fiction and war memorials to newspapers and legislative debates, Grayzel analyzes the effects of World War I on ideas about civic participation, national service, morality, sexuality, and identity in wartime Britain and France. Despite the appearance of enormous challenges to gender roles due to the upheavals of war, the forces of stability prevailed, she says, demonstrating the Western European gender system''s remarkable resilience.

Description : At a time when America''s faculties of taste and judgment-along with the sense of the sacred and shameful-have become utterly vacant, Rochelle Gurstein''s The Repeal of Reticence delivers an important and troubling warning. Covering landmark developments in America''s modern culture and law, she charts the demise of what was dismissively called gentility in the face of First Amendment triumphs for journalists, sex educators, and novelists-from Margaret Sanger''s advocacy of birth control to Judge Woolsey''s celebrated defense of Ulysses. Weaving together a study of the legal debates over obscenity and free speech with a cultural study of the critics and writers who framed the issues, Gurstein offers a trenchant reconsideration of the sacred value of privacy.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In this case study of how Pentecostalism took shape in a European context, the author uses previously unknown or unavailable primary sources to analyze the period from the beginnings of Pentecostalism in the Netherlands in 1907 to its formative years through 1930, with special emphasis on its relation to church and society. Gerrit Roelof Polman (1868-1932) was the founder and national leader during this time. Early Pentecostalism transcended barriers of race, sex, social status, nationality, and denomination, but in the eyes of many contemporaries, these elements were too revolutionary and therefore had to be condemned. The Pentecostals were rejected as false, making Polman a sectarian against his will.

Upton was also a respected artist, settling in London after studies in Paris, and this biography is a comprehensive study of her artistic career, bringing together for the first time reproductions of her major works.

Description : Women and Nature brings together a number of issues in current feminist literary criticism and discusses them in the critical languages of ecofeminism and gynocriticism, two discourses of immense importance to feminism and women''s studies. Each discourse raises issues of language and gender relating to woman and nature and implies a critique of the dualistic elements of man/woman, culture/nature. This critique then initiates a process of deconstructing these dualisms. The analysis covers seven prominent North American feminist novels. Surfacing (Margaret Atwood), The Diviners (Margaret Laurence), The Color Purple (Alice Walker), The Women of Brewster Place (Gloria Naylor), Woman on the Edge of Time (Marge Piercy), The Wanderground (Sally Gearhart), and Housekeeping (Marilynne Robinson).

Time, Death, and Eternity: Reflecting on Augustine's Confessions in Light of Heidegger's Being and Time

Product : Time, Death, and Eternity: Reflecting on Augustine's Confessions in Light of Heidegger's Being and Time
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In Book XI of the Confessions, Augustine claims that time has its beginning and ending in eternity. In Being and Time, Heidegger claims that death is the ultimate futural possibility for authentic human existence. These two texts, one from the fourth century, the other from the twentieth century, depict two very different perspectives on what limits the human conception of time. Can these perspectives be reconciled? Initially, Severson follows Paul Ricoeur''s reconciliation of Augustine and Heidegger on time and eternity as presented in Time and Narrative (Chicago, 1984-88). But Ricoeur''s argument is criticized for lacking theological depth. Building upon the earlier work of Bultmann, Tillich, and Scharlemann, Severson offers a new reading of the Confessions that affirms Augustine''s religious quest for understanding while taking into account the constraints of modern criticism.

Conflict Resolution: Its Language and Processes

Product : Conflict Resolution: Its Language and Processes
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Career Planning and Job Hunting>Labor
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Many books have been written about the theory of conflict resolution, the practice of using alternative methods for conflict suppression. Because conflict resolution is a fairly new area of study, and because most of the early works dealing with the area were of a scholarly nature, nowhere have the language and processes of conflict resolution been addressed and explained for understanding by the general reader. Conflict Resolution provides-in easily understandable terms-succinct definitions of the many new terms that have grown out of the area of conflict resolution. It also explains the ideas behind those terms, the processes by which conflict can be resolved through creative, non-violent, non-confrontational solutions. Written as an introductory text, Conflict Resolution also provides a solid understanding of the history, basic theory, and practice of conflict resolution for decision-makers and policy-makers in industry, law, and government.

Bibliographic Relationships in Music Catalogs

Product : Bibliographic Relationships in Music Catalogs
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : An important function of any library catalog is to bring together bibliographic records for materials that are related to each other in some way. The achievement of this goal depends on identifying those relationships and then linking the catalog records for the related material. Music scores present an abundance of complex relationships because of the added dimensions created by performance, requiring library catalogs to link bibliographic records for scores, performance parts, sound recordings, video recordings, books, hyper-media computer programs, and other formats. In order to redesign library catalogs to take full advantage of today''s sophisticated relational database structures, it is important to understand the exact nature of these relationships. This groundbreaking empirical study of music bibliographic relationships provides the fundamental information necessary to understand better the complexities of music cataloging and the impact of these complexities on the structure of the catalog. Vellucci''s study identifies the characteristics of music scores found in a library collection, describes in detail the types of relationships that exist within the world of music materials, and discusses the various methods currently used to link related music materials in library catalogs. Essential for music libraries and collections.

Something Cloudy Something Clear

Product : Something Cloudy Something Clear
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Something Cloudy, Something Clear is, as Tennessee Williams stated, one of the most personal plays I’ve ever written. Set in Provincetown, Cape Cod, in 1940, the play records Williams’ experiences during that pivotal summer when I took sort of a crash course in growing up. On the brink of becoming a successful playwright, Williams was also to come thoroughly out of the closet and meet Kip, his first great love. Something Cloudy, Something Clearbrilliantly reimagines that long ago time, now recollected through the filter of all the playwright’s successes and failures, joys and regrets. Eve Adamson, director of the original 1981 production, provides an insightful introduction in which she captures the play’s heart-breaking appeal: It is a delicately woven tapestry of past and present, vulnerability and toughness, impetuous action and mature insight. It seeks a reconciliation between love and art, life and death, and-to use two phrases which recur in the play––exigencies of desperation and negotiation of terms. The cloudy and the clear.

Product : The Battle For Guatemala: Rebels, Death Squads, And U.s. Power
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A contemporary history of Guatemala's thirty-year civil war—the longest and bloodiest in the hemisphere—this book pulls aside the veil of secrecy that has obscured the origins of the war. Using a structural analysis that takes critical events and changes in the nation's economic and social structure as a starting point for understanding its political crises, the author unravels the contradictions of Guatemalan politics and illustrates why, in the face of unmatched military brutality and repeated U.S. interventions, popular and revolutionary movements have arisen time and again. The central protagonists in the turbulent battle for Guatemala—rebels, death squads, and the United States—are evaluated in a dynamic framework that highlights the role of indigenous peoples and women and underscores the articulation of ethnic and gender divisions with class divisions. This book's interdisciplinary approach differentiates it from others in English and makes it an invaluable case study on the internal dynamics of Third World revolution and counterrevolution as well as on issues of human rights and U.S. policy in Central America.

An Imperfect Union: The Maastricht Treaty And The New Politics Of European Integration

Product : An Imperfect Union: The Maastricht Treaty And The New Politics Of European Integration
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Exploring the politics of European integration, Michael Baun argues that the end of the Cold War and German unification have created a new set of geopolitical realities in Europe that have profoundly affected the nature and dynamics of European union. His primary focus is the “high politics” of European integration after 1989, especially the role of the Franco-German relationship in the Maastricht Treaty process.Acknowledging the important roots of the treaty in economic and institutional developments prior to 1989, Baun argues that Maastricht principally can be understood as a response by the EU and its member states to German unification and the end of the cold war. In making this argument, he departs from more conventional neofunctionalist or institutionalist interpretations of European integration.After providing the historical background of developments before 1989, Baun weighs the decision to launch parallel intergovernmental conferences on monetary and political union in 1990 and describes in detail the negotiations and treaty outcomes in each of these areas. He then examines the difficult ratification of the Maastricht treaty in 1992–1993, in the face of growing popular opposition and economic and monetary instability. The book concludes with an analysis of the future prospects for European union in the post-Maastricht era, as the EU approaches its next major intergovernmental conference in 1996.

Communication Development During Infancy

Product : Communication Development During Infancy
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : During infancy, children master the rudiments of communication, including the intricacies of social interaction and the complexities of emotional, gestural, and symbolic expression. This book traces children''s developmental path from birth through the third year of life, providing an integrative view of their multifaceted accomplishments. Drawing on the theories of Piaget, Werner, and Vygotsky, Adamson constructs a frame for drawing together the vast literature on infants'' perception, cognition, expression, and social relationships as related to early communication. The author reviews four normative phases of communication along the developmental path between infants'' first intense moments of interpersonal sharing and their sustained, language-filled dialogues about objects and events. At each phase, she considers the infant as an expressive and a receptive communicator, the caregiver''s role as a communicative partner, the dyadic structure of communicative interactions, and how atypical conditions such as prematurity, deafness, maternal depression, and autism affect the developing communication system. This book should serve as a valuable text for advanced courses in developmental psychology, infancy, and language acquisition. It will also provide students and professionals in psychology, education, communication, and pediatrics with a well-documented overview of an exciting area of contemporary developmental research.

An overview chapter synthesizes and integrates the findings of these case studies, placing them in national perspective.Ethnic Ironies is the third in a series of studies on Latino electoral behavior published by Westview Press, including From Rhetoric to Reality: Latino Politics in the 1988 Elections and Barrio Ballots: Latino Politics in the 1990 Elections.

Brother Number One: A Political Biography Of Pol Pot

Product : Brother Number One: A Political Biography Of Pol Pot
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In the tragic recent history of Cambodia—a past scarred by a long occupation by Vietnamese forces and by the preceding three-year reign of terror by the brutal Khmer Rouge—no figure looms larger or more ominously than that of Pol Pot. As secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Kampuchea (CPK) since 1962 and as prime minister of Democratic Kampuchea (DK), he has been widely blamed for trying to destroy Cambodian society. By implementing policies whose effects were genocidal, he oversaw the deaths of more than one million of his nation's people.The political career of Saloth Sar, better known by his nom de guerre Pol Pot, forms a critical but largely inaccessible portion of twentieth-century Cambodian history. What we know about his life is sketchy: a comfortable childhood, three years of study in France, and a short career as a schoolteacher preceded several years—spent mostly in hiding—as a guerrilla and the commander of the victorious army in Cambodia's civil war. His career reached a climax when he and his associates, coming to power, attempted to transform their country along lines more radical than any attempted by a modern regime. Driven into hiding in 1979 by invading Vietnamese forces, Pol Pot maintained his leadership of a Khmer Rouge guerrilla army in exile, remaining a power and a threat.In this political biography, David P. Chandler throws light on the shadowy figure of Pol Pot. Basing his study on interviews and on a wide range of sources in English, Cambodian, and French, the author illuminates the ideas and behavior of this enigmatic man and his entourage against the background of post–World War II events, providing a key to understanding this horrific, pivotal period of Cambodian history. In this revised edition, Chandler provides new information on the state of Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge following the death of Pol Pot in 1997.

Merchants And Faith: Muslim Commerce And Culture In The Indian Ocean

Product : Merchants And Faith: Muslim Commerce And Culture In The Indian Ocean
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The intersection of Islamic history and Indian Ocean history is vast but inadequately explored. It is essential to understanding how and why Islam influenced Asia and to determining the extent to which maritime success affected the mostly land-based Muslim political powers. This area of research has elicited a lively debate involving scholars as diverse as William McNeill, K. N. Chaudhuri, Niels Steensgaard, Philip Curtin, and Janet Abu-Lughod. Merchants and Faith provides an insightful overview of this debate and addresses the major questions raised by it: What were the relationships between littoral Asia and land-based empires? How can we best explain the role played by West Europeans? What difference did it make to be a Muslim merchant? Other considerations are the production roles of China and Hindu India and the nature of the Asian trade revolution.General histories of Islamic Asia seldom draw upon the rich literature on the Indian Ocean region; Indian Ocean studies are often couched in the technical jargon of economic theories and are occasionally marred by ideological bias. To make all of this literature more accessible to a general audience and to students, Merchants and Faith distills the results and implications of this research and connects them to the well-established features of Islamic political history.

Negroes with Guns

Product : Negroes with Guns
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : First published in 1962, Negroes with Guns is the story of a southern black community''s struggle to arm itself in self-defense against the Ku Klux Klan and other racist groups. Frustrated and angered by violence condoned or abetted by the local authorities against blacks, the small community of Monroe, North Carolina, brought the issue of armed self-defense to the forefront of the civil rights movement. Under the leadership of Robert F. Williams (1925-1996), Monroe became the test case of the right of blacks to armed self-defense when law and order broke down.In 1961 Williams was framed for kidnapping and had to flee the country with his family. From exile in Cuba, Williams told his story of the Monroe case to Marc Schleifer in a three-hour interview, beginning with his return to his home town of Monroe in 1955 as a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, when he joined the local chapter of the NAACP. Williams described his involvement, supplemented by material from Williams'' articles and editorials featured in the newsletter, The Crusader -- which Williams and his wife Mabel continued to publish in Cuba for a circulation of thousands -- and an interview with John Schultz first published in Studies on the Left. These materials became Negroes with Guns.The single most important intellectual influence on Huey P. Newton, the founder of the Black Panther Party, Negroes with Guns is a classic story of a man who risked his life for democracy and freedom.

Warriors and Peacemakers: How Third Parties Shape Violence

Product : Warriors and Peacemakers: How Third Parties Shape Violence
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Why do some conflicts escalate into violence while others dissipate harmlessly? Under what circumstances will people kill, and why? While homicide has been viewed largely in the pathological terms of crime and deviance, violence, Mark Cooney contends, is a naturally-occurring form of conflict found throughout history and across cultures under certain social conditions. Cooney has analyzed the social control of homicide within and across over 30 societies and interviewed several dozens of prisoners incarcerated for murder or manslaughter, as well as members of their families. Violence such as homicide can only be understood, he argues, by transcending the traditional focus on the social characteristics of the killer and victims, and by looking at the role played by family members, friends, neighbors, onlookers, police officers, and judges. These third parties can be a source of peace or violence, depending on how they are configured in particular cases. Violence flourishes, Cooney demonstrates, when authority is either very strong or very weak and when third-party ties are strong and boundaries between groups sharply defined. Drawing on recent theory in the lively new sociological speciality of conflict management, Mark Cooney has culled a vast array of evidence from modern and preindustrial societies to provide us with the first general sociological analysis of human violence.

Description : African American Literary Theory is an extraordinary gift to literary studies. It is necessary, authoritative and thorough. The timing of this book is superb! —Karla F.C. Holloway, Duke UniversityThe influence of African American literature can be attributed, in no small part, to the literary theorists gathered in this collection. This is a superb anthology that represents a diversity of voices and points of view, and a much needed historical retrospective of how African American literary theory has developed. —Marlon B. Ross, University of MichiganA volume of great conceptual significance and originality in its focus on the development of African American literary theory. —Farah Jasmine Griffin, University of PennsylvaniaAfrican American Literary Theory: A Reader is the first volume to document the central texts and arguments in African American literary theory from the 1920s through the present. As the volume progresses chronologically from the rise of a black aesthetic criticism, through the Blacks Arts Movement, feminism, structuralism and poststructuralism, and the rise of queer theory, it focuses on the key arguments, themes, and debates in each period.By constantly bringing attention to the larger political and cultural issues at stake in the interpretation of literary texts, the critics gathered here have contributed mightily to the prominence and popularity of African American literature in this country and abroad. African American Literary Theory provides a unique historical analysis of how these thinkers have shaped literary theory, and literature at large, and will be a indispensable text for the study of African American intellectual culture.Contributors include Sandra Adell, Michael Awkward, Houston A.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : To the untrained eye, a desert is a wasteland that defies civilization; yet the desert has been home to native cultures for centuries and offers sustenance in its surprisingly wide range of plant life. Gary Paul Nabhan has combed the desert in search of plants forgotten by all but a handful of American Indians and Mexican Americans. In Gathering the Desert readers will discover that the bounty of the desert is much more than meets the eye-whether found in the luscious fruit of the stately organpipe cactus or in the lowly tepary bean. Nabhan has chosen a dozen of the more than 425 edible wild species found in the Sonoran Desert to demonstrate just how bountiful the land can be. From the red-hot chiltepines of Mexico to the palms of Palm Springs, each plant exemplifies a symbolic or ecological relationship which people of this region have had with plants through history. Each chapter focuses on a particular plant and is accompanied by an original drawing by artist Paul Mirocha. Word and picture together create a total impression of plants and people as the book traces the turn of seasons in the desert.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In considering how anthropologists have chosen to look at and write about politics, Joan Vincent contends that the anthropological study of politics is itself a historical process. Intended not only as a representation but also as a reinterpretation, her study arises from questioning accepted views and unexamined assumptions. This wide-ranging, cross-disciplinary work is a critical review of the anthropological study of politics in the English-speaking world from 1879 to the present, a counterpoint of text and context that describes for each of three eras both what anthropologists have said about politics and the national and international events that have shaped their interests and concerns. It is also an account of how intellectual, social, and political conditions influenced the discipline by conditioning both anthropological inquiry and the avenues of research supported by universities and governments. Finally, it is a study of the politics of anthropology itself, examining the survival of theses or schools of thought and the influence of certain individuals and departments.

Representative of these recent developments is the notion of Arakelov geometry, a way of completing a variety over the ring of integers of a number field by adding fibres over the Archimedean places. Another is the appearance of the relations between arithmetic geometry and Nevanlinna theory, or more precisely between diophantine approximation theory and the value distribution theory of holomorphic maps. Research mathematicians and graduate students in algebraic geometry and number theory will find a valuable and lively view of the field in this state-of-the-art selection.

The relevance of the legal dimension in the struggle for black freedom is attested by the observation that many slaves learned the letter of the law so they could seemingly recite from memory passages from congressional measures prohibiting the return of escaped slaves to disloyal owners and guaranteeing their personal liberty.

The Road to Richmond: The Civil War Letters of Major Abner R. Small of the 16th Maine Volunteers.

Product : The Road to Richmond: The Civil War Letters of Major Abner R. Small of the 16th Maine Volunteers.
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Abner Small wrote one of the most honest, poignant, and moving memoirs to come out of the Civil War. He served as a non-commissioned officer in the Third Maine Infantry during the summer of 1861, experiencing battle for the first time at First Bull Run. As a recruiting officer, he helped to raise the Sixteenth Maine Infantry and served as its adjutant. The Sixteenth Maine gained fame for its heroic delaying action on July 1 at Gettysburg, where it lost 180 of its 200 men. It went on to serve in Grant''s Overland Campaign in Virginia. Small was an articulate observer of all this. He wrote his memoirs with a keen sense of the irony of life during wartime, and with a gift for expression. His descriptions of the dead at Gettysburg, his characterizations of famous men such as Major General Oliver Otis Howard, and his reflections on the emotions of men under fire are outstanding. Small was captured in the battle of Globe Tavern on August 18, 1864. His account of prison life at Libby, Salisbury, and Danville is gripping. Small was exchanged just in time to lead his regiment in the final days of the war. His book reveals more of the inner soldier than almost any other account written by a Union veteran.

The Boy Who Made Dragonfly: A Zuni Myth

Product : The Boy Who Made Dragonfly: A Zuni Myth
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : As readers of Tony Hillerman''s detective novels know, he is a skilled interpreter of southwestern Indian cultures. In this book, first published in 1972 and now in paperback, he recounts a Zuni myth first recorded a century ago by the anthropologist Frank Hamilton Cushing. Hillerman''s version of the story, written to be read by children ten years old and up, will have equal appeal for adults with an interest in Native American culture.In our society, Hillerman explains, this would be called a ''Bible story. Like stories based on the Old Testament, this narrative is intended to teach both the history and morality of a people. It tells the consequences of a drought in which the Zuni crops were ruined and the tribe was forced to accept charity from the neighboring Hopis.

Biltmore Estate: The Most Distinguished Private Place

Product : Biltmore Estate: The Most Distinguished Private Place
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The most distinguished private place - that is how, in 1893, the great landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted described Biltmore Estate, perhaps the most ambitious private building project of America''s Gilded Age. It was only five years earlier that George Washington Vanderbilt purchased the first parcel of what would become his 125,000-acre estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Along with Olmsted, he commissioned the preeminent architect of the day, Richard Morris Hunt, to design the estate. The house, modeled in part on the chateaux of the Loire Valley, has become one of the greatest and most important in American architectural history. Its 255 rooms, with spectacular and finely crafted interiors, opulent furnishings (some designed by Hunt), and furniture and decorative arts objects collected by Vanderbilt from all corners of the world, have made it a rich national treasure. The estate served as the cradle of the profession of forestry in America. With Olmsted''s advice and expertise, it became the first working model of a scientifically managed forest and played a critical role in the creation of our national parks. This meticulously researched book accompanies an exhibition organized by The Octagon, the Museum of The American Architectural Foundation; it chronicles Biltmore from inception, development, and construction through its Christmas 1895 opening celebrations, and into the present. Original architectural drawings, sketches, plans, presentation drawings, nineteenth-century photographs, and vibrant new color photography complete this portrait of a great landmark. Today Biltmore Estate belongs to George Washington Vanderbilt''s descendants, who have opened the house to thepublic and have made it one of the most visited in America.

The New World Border: Prophecies, Poems, and Loqueras for the End Of the Century

Product : The New World Border: Prophecies, Poems, and Loqueras for the End Of the Century
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The New World Border is a carnivalesque inversion of ethnic and geo-political ideology, a disorienting free-fall into the space between cultures, and a head-on collision with the real and imagined borders that separate North and South.Hero of a thousand syncretic faces ? intercultural interpreter, reverse anthropologist, experimental linguist, and political artist of the first order ? Guillermo Gomez-Pena has won international acclaim for his efforts to create a hybrid culture and to articulate a borderless ethos.In this new collection of essays, poems, and performance texts, Gomez-Pena muses, often tongue-in-cheek, on matters of race, nationality, language, and identity. With a heady mix of pop culture, provocative iconography, political satire, ethnic stereotypes, and guerrilla theory, he explores the territory of cultural misunderstanding.In everything he does, he remains an indomitably playful phrasemaker; a fertile rethinker of cultural contradictions, cliches, and conundrums; and an inspiring recruiter for a playground army of cultural pluralists. -The Village VoiceGomez-Pena invites the reader into uncharted territory: the vast, intercontinental border zone where people live between and across cultures and countries, creating a thoroughly hybrid society where the only cultural others are those who stubbornly resist mestizaje.The New World Border is both wildly entertaining and thoughtfully incisive, inducing a kind of cultural vertigo that erases the borders between ''us'' and ''them''.The New World Border is a required addition to all literary and multicultural studies collections! -Midwest Book ReviewGuillermo Gomez Pena is a clear example of the work that originates from and about the border. His work deals with borders, with their existence, construction, reconstruction, definition, and eventual questioning. In this context, the aim of this essay is to explore the way the artist puts into practice his conceptualization of the border reality in The New World Border: Prophecies for the End of the Century, which toured worldwide and in front of very diverse, international audiences. -Amaia Ibarraran Bigalondo,Journal of Contemporary Drama in EnglishGuillermo Gomez-Pena was born in Mexico City in 1955 and came to the U.S. in 1978. His work, which includes performance art, poetry, journalism, criticism, and cultural theory, explores cross-cultural issues and North/South relations. He is the recipient of an American Book Award forThe New World Border and a MacArthur Foundation Genius Award, among many other honors. One of his other works,Codex Espangliensis, was also published by City Lights Publishers.
