Wondrous Child

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Lindy Hough, Wondrous Child Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Wondrous Child books, A Santa Cruz postpartum doula, a New Hampshire flute-maker, a Zen teacher, a dance therapist, a Sri Lankan film director—these are a few of the grandparents who share their stories in this bracing collection. The essays cover a wide range of experiences as they examine the marrow of this often undervalued relationship from both the grandparent and the grandchild point of view. A common thread running throughout is the special importance of these relationships, which are often as complex and rewarding as the parent-child connection. Wondrous Child is divided into four parts. In Part One, “Settling In,” new grandparents survey the territory and describe their expectations. Part Two, “Balancing Reality and Hope,” takes a deeper look at some of the heartbreak that can occur, as well as complexities: step-grandparenting, spanning geographical distance, the surprise of children living with grandparents. Part Three, “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren,” explores men and women parenting their grandchildren in the absence of parents. Part Four, “Grandchildren Remember” is written by grown grandchildren who catch the tone and feeling of this special person in their life. These vivid essays will appeal to both grandparents, as a celebration of their place in the family, and new parents curious about how grandparents can contribute to their children. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Global West American Frontier

Footsteps Across The Frontier by David M. Wrobel, Global West American Frontier Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Global West American Frontier books, This thoughtful examination of a century of travel writing about the American West overturns a variety of popular and academic stereotypes. Looking at both European and American travelers’ accounts of the West, from de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America to William Least Heat-Moon’s Blue Highways, David Wrobel offers a counter narrative to the nation’s romantic entanglement with its western past and suggests the importance of some long-overlooked authors, lively and perceptive witnesses to our history who deserve new attention. Prior to the professionalization of academic disciplines, the reading public gained much of its knowledge about the world from travel writing. Travel writers found a wide and respectful audience for their reports on history, geography, and the natural world, in addition to reporting on aboriginal cultures before the advent of anthropology as a discipline. Although in recent decades western historians have paid little attention to travel writing, Wrobel demonstrates that this genre in fact offers an important and rich understanding of the American West—one that extends and complicates a simple reading of the West that promotes the notions of Manifest Destiny or American exceptionalism. Wrobel finds counterpoints to the mythic West of the nineteenth century in such varied accounts as George Catlin’s Adventures of the Ojibbeway and Ioway Indians in England, France, and Belgium (1852), Richard Francis Burton’s The City of the Saints (1861), and Mark Twain’s Following the Equator (1897), reminders of the messy and contradictory world that people navigated in the past much as they do in the present. His book is a testament to the instructive ways in which the best travel writers have represented the West.

The Material Ghost

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Gilberto Perez, The Material Ghost Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Material Ghost books, In The Material Ghost, Perez draws on his life-long love of the movies as well as his work as a film scholar to write an engaging study of films and filmmakers and the nature of the art form. For Perez, film is complex and richly contradictory - a medium both lifelike and dreamlike, both documentary and fictional, where real details create imaginary worlds, where figures appear before us like actors on a stage and yet are removed from us like characters in a novel. He investigates these complexities by discussing a breathtaking range of works from the earliest days of cinema to the present. From the silent era, he explores the work of Keaton and Chaplin, Griffith and Eisenstein, the haunting anxiety of Murnau's Nosferatu and the epic lyricism of Dovzhenko's Earth. From the classic era of sound cinema, he discusses the searching realism of Jean Renoir and the memorable westerns of John Ford, Bunuel's corrosive documentary Land without Bread and Hitchcock's mesmerizing Vertigo. From the sixties and seventies, he examines the shifting parables of Jean-Luc Godard and the arresting uncertainty of Antonioni's Eclipse, Straub and Huillet's reflective History Lessons and such explosive Hollywood films as The Wild Bunch and The Godfather. He also comments on the current scene, including the refashioned gangster films of Martin Scorsese and the philosophical realism of the Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami.

Cold War Cosmopolitanism

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Christina Klein, Cold War Cosmopolitanism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cold War Cosmopolitanism books, South Korea in the 1950s was home to a burgeoning film culture, one of the many “Golden Age cinemas” that flourished in Asia during the postwar years. Cold War Cosmopolitanism offers a transnational cultural history of South Korean film style in this period, focusing on the works of Han Hyung-mo, director of the era’s most glamorous and popular women’s pictures, including the blockbuster Madame Freedom (1956). Christina Klein provides a unique approach to the study of film style, illuminating how Han’s films took shape within a “free world” network of aesthetic and material ties created by the legacies of Japanese colonialism, the construction of US military bases, the waging of the cultural Cold War by the CIA, the forging of regional political alliances, and the import of popular cultures from around the world. Klein combines nuanced readings of Han’s sophisticated style with careful attention to key issues of modernity—such as feminism, cosmopolitanism, and consumerism—in the first monograph devoted to this major Korean director.

Remembering The Second World War

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Patrick Finney, Remembering The Second World War Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Remembering The Second World War books, Remembering the Second World War brings together an international and interdisciplinary cast of leading scholars to explore the remembrance of this conflict on a global scale. Conceptually, it is premised on the need to challenge nation-centric approaches in memory studies, drawing strength from recent transcultural, affective and multidirectional turns. Divided into four thematic parts, this book largely focuses on the post-Cold War period, which has seen a notable upsurge in commemorative activity relating to the Second World War and significant qualitative changes in its character. The first part explores the enduring utility and the limitations of the national frame in France, Germany and China. The second explores transnational transactions in remembrance, looking at memories of the British Empire at war, contested memories in East-Central Europe and the transnational campaign on behalf of Japan's former 'comfort women'. A third section considers local and sectional memories of the war and the fourth analyses innovative practices of memory, including re-enactment, video gaming and Holocaust tourism. Offering insightful contributions on intriguing topics and illuminating the current state of the art in this growing field, this book will be essential reading for all students and scholars of the history and memory of the Second World War.

In The Footsteps Of Flora Tristan

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Máire Fedelma Cross, In The Footsteps Of Flora Tristan Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download In The Footsteps Of Flora Tristan books, In the Footsteps of Flora Tristan is the first ever study devoted to Jules Puech (1879-1957), and is a double biography that examines his life's work on Flora Tristan (1803-1844), feminist and socialist. It begins by examining newly found press reports of Flora Tristan during her lifetime and subsequently, then positions Puech's discovery of her, as a postgraduate student in Paris in the 1900s. It continues with an account of how he embarked on the first in-depth biography published in 1925. Puech was unmatched in his expertise as a writer on Flora Tristan having discovered her papers through his numerous political connections and having become a historian of Proudhon's legacy on the international aspirations of the labour movement. Together with his wife Marie-Louise Milhau (1876-1966), suffragist feminist, he was a militant in the early twentieth-century pacifist movement that advocated international arbitration. His research on Flora Tristan was enriched by his other projects but was thwarted by the wars of 1914-1918 and 1940-1945. The circumstances of the long gestation of Puech's biography are drawn from his letters and papers, hitherto unseen. The correspondence curated brings a new understanding to the multi-faceted nature of Puech's activism and rate of progress in the publication of his findings on his subject, Flora Tristan.

Footsteps In Kosovo

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Kristina Lucas, Footsteps In Kosovo Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Footsteps In Kosovo books, Footsteps in Kosovo - a travel book that deals with an unusual subject in a different manner. Initially when learning she was to visit Kosovo the author, searched for information about the land and the inhabitants... "to find out what it was like". Admitting ignorance of the land other than knowledge of the conflict in 1999 when NATO conducted an air offensive on humanitarian grounds to halt what was termed as the ethnic cleansing of the Albanian population of Kosovo. Much has been written about the war period but despite extensive investigation she came across very little on the domestic front. The book is an attempt to remedy this. The personal dialogue draws a sensitive picture of this small part of the world - not much larger than the county of Yorkshire - now a UN protectorate, and still an 'active posting' for the NATO military forces after 5 years of 'nation building'. With the aid of her camera and a quirky sense of humour that saw Kosovo becoming 'curiouser and curiouser', aspects of living in Kosovo today are revealed. First seeing Kosovo from the comparative safety of one of the myriad of white 4x4 vehicles she falls irrationally in love with the land, the people and the fascinating history. With her camera ever ready she portrays a land of often violent contrasts. Written looking at Kosovo briefly from history - the day before; the war years - yesterday; the author takes to her heart the Kosovo of today. Determined to attempt to analysis her attraction 60-year-old Kristina returns... alone. To find her affinity, interest, intensifying. She has since been back yet again on her own, to stay in the capital Pristina just prior to the recent elections; feeling her way in this unsettled land; 'to test the water' as the frustrations of the population continue to simmer.

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Joseph L. Gavett, Guardians Of The Frontier Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Guardians Of The Frontier books, Guardians of the Frontier: The Cross Family Chronicle, 1836-1903, is a story of three generations of the Cross family following their arrival from England in 1836. In 1849, Isaac heads west from New York to fulfill his dream of seeing the frontier before the inevitable inroads of civilization destroy it. Arriving in St. Louis, he takes a job as a carpenter with the American Fur Company and is sent to Fort Pierre. Isaac maintains contact with his twin brother, Edward and family, through a series of letters, sent from the frontier. He revisits St. Louis, in the Company of Alexander Culbertson, following the death of his friend and fellow carpenter, John O’Connor. In time, he becomes a skilled hunter and scout. Among the Sioux lodges at Riverview, 35 miles north of Fort Pierre, his friendship earns him the name, Little Brother. Moving on to Fort Union, he develops a strong friendship with His Horse Was Wounded, an Assiniboine Indian. Like many of the early frontiersman, he marries an Indian. Her name was Lodge Pole, younger sister of his Assiniboine friend. Together they have a son. Lodge Pole, who by now is known as Manna, is killed at Fort Randall while Isaac and the fort's soldiers are in pursuit of James All Yellow, a renegade Yanktonai Sioux Indian and his followers. Isaac returns to her village in the company of Bear’s Child and Speckled Wing. There, he leaves his son, William First Boy, in the care of His Horse Was Wounded and his wife, Yellow Bird. Isaac travels to Fort Abercrombie, located along the Red River of the North. Colonel Abercrombie hires him to serve as a scout and hunter. Here, he is killed by his nemesis, James All Yellow. After Isaac’s death in 1859, his nephew, Abe Cross, leaves New York and makes his way to Fort Abercrombie to gather his uncle’s belongings and find his son. He is successful in locating William First Boy, but while at Fort Union in 1862, he learns of the outbreak of the Civil War. He joins several other men in returning to St. Louis to join in the fight. Together, the men join the 10th Missouri Volunteer Cavalry. In 1864, the men of the 10th, under the command of Major Frederick Benteen, participate in the Battle of Mine Creek. Abe receives a letter 1865 notifying him of the death of his parents, Edward and Charlotte. Following the war he returns to their family farm near Hawkins Landing, New York, to settle his affairs. Departing New York, he returns to the frontier in search of Isaac’s son. While at Fort Berthold, Abe learns that Sweet Bears, a Hidatsa Indian and wife of his deceased friend, Judd Strong, is alive and well, following her escape from her Sioux captures. She becomes his wife, and together they search out William First Boy. When His Horse Was Wounded is killed hunting buffalo, Abe, Sweet Bears, Yellow Bird, and William First Boy, leave the Assiniboine village, never to return. They make their way east toward the Mouse River, resettling along the Wintering River, Dakota Territory. Smallpox, contracted from three broke, down and out, white prospectors, takes the lives of Sweet Bears and Yellow Bird in 1866. Abe and William establish the Cross Ranch along the Wintering River, where they develop a new breed of horses and raise a few Texas Longhorns. William marries Rebecca Stevenson in 1880. Their son, William, is two and one half when his father, suffering from bouts of extreme depression, commits suicide. In time, Rebecca remarries Kincaid, a trusted friend and long-time employee/partner of Abe Cross. Death comes to Abe in 1903, followed by Rebecca in 1908. Kincaid lived for few more years, dying in an automotive accident 1911. The Cross Ranch is sold, breaking it up into several farms. All that remains to remind new generations of the days of yesteryear along the Wintering River is the small, weathered cemetery of the Cross family. William Cross married Hilma Youngquist.

Footsteps Across The Frontier by Eiichiro Azuma, In Search Of Our Frontier Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download In Search Of Our Frontier books, In Search of Our Frontier explores the complex transnational history of Japanese immigrant settler colonialism, which linked Japanese America with Japan’s colonial empire through the exchange of migrant bodies, expansionist ideas, colonial expertise, and capital in the Asia-Pacific basin before World War II. The trajectories of Japanese transpacific migrants exemplified a prevalent national structure of thought and practice that not only functioned to shore up the backbone of Japan’s empire building but also promoted the borderless quest for Japanese overseas development. Eiichiro Azuma offers new interpretive perspectives that will allow readers to understand Japanese settler colonialism’s capacity to operate outside the aegis of the home empire.

Frontiers Of Faith

Footsteps Across The Frontier by John R. Dichtl, Frontiers Of Faith Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Frontiers Of Faith books, American religious histories have often focused on the poisoned relations between Catholics and Protestants during the colonial period or on the virulent anti-Catholicism and nativism of the mid- to late nineteenth century. Between these periods, however, lies an important era of close, peaceable, and significant interaction between these discordant factions. Frontiers of Faith: Bringing Catholicism to the West in the Early Republic examines how Catholics in the early nineteenth-century Ohio Valley expanded their church and strengthened their connections to Rome alongside the rapid development of the Protestant Second Great Awakening. In competition with clergy of evangelical Protestant denominations, priests and bishops aggressively established congregations, constructed church buildings, ministered to the faithful, and sought converts. Catholic clergy also displayed the distinctive features of Catholicism that would inspire Catholics and, hopefully, impress others. The clerics' optimism grew from the opportunities presented by the western frontier and the presence of non-Catholic neighbors. The fruit of these efforts was a European church translated to the American West. In spite of the relative harmony with Protestants and pressures to Americanize, Catholics relied on standard techniques of establishing the authority, institutions, and activities of their faith. By the time Protestant denominations began to resent the Catholic presence in the 1830s, they also had reason to resent Catholic successes—and the many manifestations of that success—in conveying the faith to others. Using extensive correspondence, reports, diaries, court documents, apologetical works, and other records of the Catholic clergy, John R. Dichtl shows how Catholic leadership successfully pursued strategies of growth in frontier regions while continually weighing major decisions against what it perceived to be Protestant opinion. Frontiers of Faith helps restore Catholicism to the story of religious development in the early republic and emphasizes the importance of clerical and lay efforts to make sacred the landscape of the New West.
