U. S. Grant American Hero, American Myth
U. S. Grant: American Hero, American Myth (Civil War America) by Joan Waugh
English | 2009 | 384 Pages | ISBN: 0807833177 | PDF | 10 MB
How does national memory determine national heroes? Waugh, a UCLA history professor, probes the subject in an engaging study of the making of Ulysses S. Grant's reputation. At the time of his death in 1885, he was perceived as on a level with George Washington by former Unionists and Confederates alike. His memoirs were a bestseller. His image combined the honorable soldier and the generous victor: a heroic war leader who believed in the ideal of national reconciliation in both regional and racial contexts.

The Charisma of Distant Places Travel and Religion in the Early Middle Ages

The Charisma of Distant Places Travel and Religion in the Early Middle Ages
The Charisma of Distant Places: Travel and Religion in the Early Middle Ages (Studies in Medieval History and Culture) by Courtney Luckhardt
2020 | ISBN: 0367137356 | English | 248 pages | EPUB | 2 MB
This cultural history of early medieval travel and religion reveals how movement affected society, demonstrating the connectedness of people and regions between 500 and 850 CE. In The Charisma of Distant Places, Courtney Luckhardt enriches our understanding of migration through her examination of religious movement. Vertical links to God and horizontal links to distant regions identified religious travelers - both men and women - as holy, connected to the human and the divine across physical and spiritual distances. Using textual sources, material culture, and place studies, this project is among the first to contextualize the geographic and temporal movement of early medieval people to reveal the diversity of religious travel, from the voluntary journeys of pilgrims to the forced travel of Christian slaves. Luckhardt offers new ways of understanding ideas about power, holiness, identity, and mobility during the transformation of the Roman world in the global Middle Ages. By focusing on the religious dimensions of early medieval people and the regions they visited, this book addresses probing questions, including how and why medieval people communicated and connected with one another across boundaries, both geographical and imaginative.

Right-Wing Populism and Gender European Perspectives and Beyond (Gender Studies)

Posted by: voska89 on 2-12-2020, 23:15

Right-Wing Populism and Gender European Perspectives and Beyond (Gender Studies)
Right-Wing Populism and Gender: European Perspectives and Beyond (Gender Studies) by Gabriele Dietze, Julia Roth
2020 | ISBN: 3837649806 | English | 300 pages | PDF | 17 MB
While the field of research in right-wing populism has recently been blossoming and is expanding, a systematic look into the interface of right-wing populism and gender is still missing, even though gender issues are omnipresent in discourses of the radical right ranging from "ethnosexism" against immigrants, to "anti-genderism." This volume seeks to strengthen the analysis of the intersection of gender and race as constitutional for radical right discourse. The contributions investigate from different European perspectives the ways in which gender is used as an arena and as an epistemological platform for the ordering and hierarchization of political objectives.

Dark Age Ahead
Jane Jacobs, "Dark Age Ahead"
English | 205 | ISBN: 1400076706 | 256 pages | EPUB | 0.207 MB
In this indispensable book, urban visionary Jane Jacobs argues that as agrarianism gives way to a technology-based future, we're at risk of cultural collapse. Jacobs-renowned author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities and The Economy of Cities-pinpoints five pillars of our culture that are in serious decay: community and family; higher education; the effective practice of science; taxation, and government; and the self-regulation of the learned professions. The corrosion of these pillars, Jacobs argues, is linked to societal ills such as environmental crisis, racism, and the growing gulf between rich and poor.
