80 @ 80: Reviews in Asian Affairs

Год издания: 2009
Страниц: 270
This pertinent, fascinating collection brings together the 80 reviews written by Ivor Lucas for global publication Asian Affairs to coincide with the author's 80th birthday. In the context of political unrest in the Middle East, and the emerging realisation of a changing, unsettled Britain, these reviews, mostly for books, offer a gateway to a greater understanding of Asian, and Middle Eastern affairs, to a reader bombarded with the current unclear, potentially unreliable media coverage. The purpose of Asian Affairs itself is to strengthen communication and understanding and to offer a platform for exchange of information between Asia and Europe. Drawing on a long and varied career in the foreign office and abroad, during which he was appointed Ambassador to Oman and Syria, Ivor Lucas himself offers a thoughtful, enlightened perspective on all aspects of Middle Eastern life, with the reviews grouped under the headings: Middle East General, Arab - Israel, The Gulf, Levant, Islam,...

The Scottish World: A Journey Into the Scottish Diaspora

"Thaim wi a guid Scots tongue in their heid are fit tae gang ower the warld."While others have questioned the self-confidence of the Scots, Kay has traveled the world from Bangkok to Brazil, Warsaw to Waikiki and found ringing endorsements for the integrity and intellect, the poetry and passion of the Scottish people in every country he has visited. He expands people’s view of Scotland by relating remarkable stories of the wealthy Scottish merchant community in Gdansk; of national geniuses of Scots descent, such as Lermontov in Russia and Grieg in Norway; of an American Civil War blamed on Sir Walter Scott and initiated in the St. Andrews Society of Charleston; of inspirational missionaries in Calabar and Budapest; of Scotch Professors establishing football in soccer strongholds like Barcelona and Sao Paulo; of pioneers like Sandeman and Cockburn and the Scottish roots of many of the great wines of Europe; and of amazing Scottish involvement in liberation movements in Malawi, Chile,...
American Culture in the 1920s (Twentieth-century American Culture)

Professor Sue Currell

American Culture in the 1920s (Twentieth-century American Culture)

In the decade following the end of World War I, the United States rose to its current seat as the leading world superpower matched by an emerging cultural dominance that would come to characterize the second half of the twentieth century. American Culture in the 1920s is an engaging account of the major cultural and intellectual trends that were pivotal to the decade's characterization as "the jazz age." Avoiding superficial representations of the era as the "roaring twenties" plagued by a "lost generation," the volume provides a full portrait that includes chapters on literature, music and performance, film and radio, visual art and design, and the unprecedented rise of leisure and consumption.
Hijos del Pueblo: Gender, Family, and Community in Rural Mexico, 1730-1850

Deborah E. Kanter

Hijos del Pueblo: Gender, Family, and Community in Rural Mexico, 1730-1850

The everyday lives of indigenous and Spanish families in the countryside, a previously under-explored segment of Mexican cultural history, are now illuminated through the vivid narratives presented in Hijos del Pueblo ("offspring of the village"). Drawing on neglected civil and criminal judicial records from the Toluca region, Deborah Kanter revives the voices of native women and men, their Spanish neighbors, muleteers, and hacienda peons to showcase their struggles in an era of crisis and uncertainty (1730-1850). Engaging and meaningful biographies of indigenous villagers, female and male, illustrate that no scholar can understand the history of Mexican communities without taking gender seriously. In legal interactions native plaintiffs and Spanish jurists confronted essential questions of identity and hegemony. At once an insightful consideration of individual experiences and sweeping paternalistic power constructs, Hijos del Pueblo contributes important new findings to the realm...

Naselle-Grays River Valley (Images of America (Arcadia Publishing))

Naselle-Grays River Valley is located in western Wahkiakum County and southern Pacific County, with the mighty Columbia River running the full length of the region. The Chinook Indians made the valley their home long before Lewis and Clark came down the Columbia on their expedition to find the Pacific Ocean. The first white settlers came in the mid-1800s, establishing the communities of Naselle, Grays River, Deep River, Brookfield, Pillar Rock, Dahlia, Knappton, and Altoona. In 1866, William Hume built the first salmon cannery on the Columbia, and local economies flourished with 35 canneries in operation at one time. When the Ocean Beach Highway replaced the river as the major thoroughfare in 1924, growth shifted elsewhere. Naselle, one of the smaller communities in the late 1800s, is today the largest and only surviving town, thanks to the many Finnish families that homesteaded the area.
