Evelyn C. White

Alice Walker: A Life

The first full-length biography of the author of The Color Purple ?an American icon praised and pilloried for her art and activism. Born to a sharecropping family in Georgia, Alice Walker thrived in the rich culture of what she called the "agrarian peasantry" to become one of our most important and popular writers. Evelyn C. White charts Walker's childhood, marked by an incident at eight that left her blinded in her right eye and disfigured by scar tissue and that prompted her, out of a sense of "ugliness," to probe human suffering through her poems and stories. We learn of her activism in the 1960s freedom movement and her leadership of the debate on black women's art, politics, and sexuality. The Color Purple garnered Walker the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction?the first awarded to a black woman writer. Drawing on papers, letters, journals, and extensive interviews with Walker, her family, friends, and colleagues, and with leading American cultural figures...

Two Sisters for Social Justice: A Biography of Grace and Edith Abbott

Book DescriptionDuring the first half of the twentieth century Grace Abbott (1878-1939) and her sister Edith (1876-1957) worked tirelessly to correct many of our nation's most serious problems. In this vividly detailed and balanced biography, Lela B. Costin has given these two remarkable women their due. From the Progressive Era through the New Deal, the Abbott sisters were an integral part of the debate that raged around the issues of suffrage, workers' rights, child labor laws, juvenile delinquency, prostitution, the "immigrant problem," tenement housing, social security, emergency relief programs, and the peace movement. Refusing to claim any of the special "feminine" insights often attributed to their contemporary Jane Addams, the Abbotts assumedthe role of social engineers and strove for a specialized competence with which to understand the entire social system. Individually their achievements were many. Grace was best known for her work with the U.S. Children's Bureau...

The Rolling Thunder Logbook

Sam Shepard

The Rolling Thunder Logbook

In the Autumn of 1975 when America was festering with Bicentennial madness, Bob Dylan and his Rolling Thunder Review - a rag-tag variety show that Dylan envisioned as a travelling gypsy circus - toured 22 cities across the Northeast US. In amongst the motley crew that included Joni Mitchell, T-Bone Burnett, Allen Ginsberg, Mick Ronson, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, was playwright Sam Shepard, ostensibly hired to write the script for a Fellini-esque movie that would come of the tour. Throughout the many moods and moments of his travels with Dylan and the troupe, Shepard also kept an impressionistic logbook of life on the road. Published soon after the tour finished, it quickly became a classic for Dylan fans. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of that tour, this edition of Shepard's book was completely redesigned, and illuminated by 40 candid photographs by official tour photographer Ken Regan, many never-before published. "The Rolling Thunder Logbook" captures the...
The Book of Saints: A Comprehensive Biographical Dictionary

The Book of Saints: A Comprehensive Biographical Dictionary

Book DescriptionThis is the first comprehensive dictionary of saints in any language for seventy years. The last edition of this book, the sixth, published in 1970, included very few entries for those recently beatified and canonized and almost none for those honored by Pope John Paul II. Unlike other books of saints which are selective--based on locale, gender, art-historical interest, or spiritual appeal--this one is rigorously comprehensive and historically objective. It includes entries for all thosewho have been formally canonized or beatified to date, or have had their local veneration approved by the church as a whole, or have been listed in the old Roman martyrology. It also includes the more prominent of those local saints who have been venerated in the distant past, before the process of canonization was formalized, who are no longer liturgically honored anywhere, but who feature in historical records.

Samuel Wesley: The Man and his Music

Book DescriptionThis well-documented life of Samuel Wesley gives a vivid picture of the life of a professional musician in late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century London. Wesley was born in 1766, the son of the Methodist hymn-writer Charles Wesley and nephew of the preacher John Wesley. He was the finest composer and organist of his generation, but his unconventional behaviour makes him of more than ordinary interest. He lived through a crucial stage of English music from the immediately post-Handelgeneration to the early Romantic period, and his large output includes piano and organ music, orchestral music, church music, glees, and songs. He also taught and lectured on music, and was involved in journalism, publishing, and promoting the music of J. S. Bach. This book draws on letters, family papers, and other contemporary documents to offer a full study of Wesley, his music, and his life and times. PHILIP OLLESON is Professor of Historical Musicology at the University of...

Christian Marclay

Book DescriptionIt is sound--and our culturally determined reactions to it--that forms the basis of Christian Marclay's genre- and media-crossing art. Fascinated by the translation of the audible into the visual, the theme that informs all of his work isthe space between what we hear and what we see. Telephone conversation, movies, reviews of musical performances, compact discs and album covers have all provided sources of inspiration for his work. This volume looks at the diverse body of work that Marclay has created from 1980 to the present, exploring it within the various contexts of music, art history and popular culture in which it exists. Twenty years of Marclay's sculpture, collage, installation, photography and video are represented. Essayists include Russell Ferguson, UCLA Hammer Museum chief curator and the Marclay exhibition curator; Miwon Kwon, University of California, Los Angeles professor of art history; Douglas Kahn, professor of technocultural studies at the...

Ralph J., Ph.D. Bunche

A Brief And Tentative Analysis Of Negro Leadership

Book Description A world-renowned scholar and statesman, Dr. Ralph J. Bunche (1903?1971) began his career as an educator and a political scientist, and later joined the United Nations, serving as Undersecretary General for seventeen of his twenty-five years with that body. This African American mediator was the first person of color anywhere in the world to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. In the mid-1930s, Bunche played a key role in organizing the National Negro Congress, a popular front-styled group dedicated to progressive politics and labor and civil rights reform. A Brief and Tentative Analysis of Negro Leadership provides key insight into black leadership at the dawn of the modern civil rights movement. Originally prepared for the Carnegie Foundation study, An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy, Bunche's research on the topic was completed in 1940. This never-before-published work now includes an extended scholarly introduction...
