Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water

Anul aparitiei: 1993

"I've been thinking a lot about Cadillac Desert in the past few weeks, as the rain fell and fell and kept falling over California, much of which, despite the pouring heavens, seems likely to remain in the grip of a severe drought. Reisner anticipated this moment. He worried that the West's success with irrigation could be a mirage -- that it took water for granted and didn't appreciate the precariousness of our capacity to control it." - Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times, January 20,2023 "The definitive work on the West's water crisis." --Newsweek The story of the American West is the story of a relentless quest for a precious resource: water. It is a tale of rivers diverted and dammed, of political corruption and intrigue, of billion-dollar battles over water rights, of ecological and economic disaster. In his landmark book, Cadillac Desert, Marc Reisner writes of the earliest settlers, lured by the promise of paradise, and of the ruthless tactics employed by Los Angeles politicians and business interests to ensure the city's growth. He documents the bitter rivalry between two government giants, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in the competition to ...

New in 2023, the 50th anniversary edition of the classic, freewheeling novel by one of the most iconic satirists of our time--now with a new introduction by the author. "Part vision, part satire, part farce... A wholly original, unholy cross between the craft of fiction and witchcraft." --The New York Times It is the 1920s in New York City and an epidemic known as Jes Grew is sweeping the nation--a dancing plague, irresistible, joyful, and undeniably Black. Naturally, the powers-that-be are having none of it. A repressive conspiracy is operating in the shadows, and it is dead set on squelching Jes Grew and its Carriers--Black artists and musicians--by any means necessary. So begins the classic novel by Ishmael Reed, the iconic satirist whose contributions to American literature have drawn praise from the likes of James Baldwin and Harold Bloom. Mumbo Jumbo is an ingenious deconstruction of Western civilization--a cinematic collage that mixes portraits of historical figures and incidents with sound bites on subjects ranging from ragtime to Greek philosophy. Now with a new introduction by the author, this timeless and crucial work of twentieth-century fiction is ready to be ...

January 1067. Charismatic bishop Odo of Bayeux decides to commission a wall hanging, on a scale never seen before, to celebrate his role in the conquest of Britain by his brother, William, Duke of Normandy. What he cannot anticipate is how utterly this will change his life - even more than the invasion itself. His life becomes entangled with the women who embroider his hanging, especially Gytha - handmaiden to the fallen Saxon queen and his sworn enemy. But against their intentions they fall helplessly in love; in doing so Odo comes into conflict with his king and his God and Gytha with Odo's enemies, who mistrust her hold over such a powerful man. Friends and family become enemies, enemies become lovers; nothing in life or in the hanging is what it seems. In a new edition to celebrate a remarkable 2023 sculptural commemoration of this bestselling book installed at Julian of Norwich's shrine, The Needle in the Blood is a powerful tale of sex, lies and embroidery.

Emily Bronte Reappraised

Editura: Saraband

Anul aparitiei: 2018

A biography with a twist about Emily Brontë, the subject of major 2023 film Emily starring Emma Mackey. Emily Brontë occupies a special place in the English literary canon. And rightly so: the incomparable Wuthering Heights is a novel that has bewitched us for almost 200 years, and the character of Heathcliff is seen by some as the ultimate romantic hero--and villain. But Emily herself remains an enigmatic figure, often portrayed as awkward, volatile, as a misanthrope, as "no normal being." That's the conventional wisdom on Emily as a person, but is it accurate, is it fair? In this biography with a twist, Claire O'Callaghan conjures a new image of Emily and rehabilitates her reputation by exploring the themes of her life and work--her feminism, her passion for the natural world--as well as the art she has inspired, and even the "fake news" stories about her. What do we really know about her romantic life, for example, or about who and what inspired her characters and stories? What we discover is that Emily was, in fact, a thoroughly modern woman. So now, two centuries on, it's time for the real Emily Brontë to step forward.

Rhee is a Korean migrant American educational qualitative researcher, who learns anew how to notice, feel, research, and write her mother's rememory across time, geography, languages, and ways of knowing and being. She draws on Toni Morrison's concept of "rememory" and Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's "fragmented-multi self." Using various genres such as poems, dialogues, fictions, and theories, Rhee documents a multi-layered process of conceptualizing, researching, and writing her (m/others') transnational rememory as a collective knowledge project of intergenerational decolonial feminists of color.

Ghost Ship Institutional Racism and the Church of England

Editura: SCM Press

Anul aparitiei: 2020

LONGLISTED FOR THE MICHAEL RAMSEY PRIZE 2023 The Church is very good at saying all the right things about racial equality. But the reality is that the institution has utterly failed to back up these good intentions with demonstrable efforts to reform. It is a long way from being a place of black flourishing. Through conversation with clergy, lay people and campaigners in the Church of England, A.D.A France-Williams issues a stark warning to the church, demonstrating how black and brown ministers are left to drown in a sea of complacency and collusion. While sticking plaster remedies abound, France-Williams argues that what is needed is a wholesale change in structure and mindset. Unflinching in its critique of the church, Ghost Ship explores the harrowing stories of institutional racism experienced then and now, within the Church of England. Far from being an issue which can be solved by simply recruiting more black and brown clergy, says France-Williams, structural racism requires a wholesale dismantling and reassembling of the ship - before it is too late.

Anul aparitiei: 2020

This book examines four aspects of Malaysian consumers' financial vulnerabilities. First, it discusses the issue of over-indebtedness due to excessive reliance on consumer financing. Second, the book investigates why Malaysians are ill-prepared for their golden years in terms of retirement planning and savings. Third, it delves into the problem of financial fraud victimisation among Malaysian consumers. Fourth, the book analyses the reasons why Malaysians are underinsured despite the distinct benefits of life insurance. Drawing on secondary data from government agencies such as Bank Negara Malaysia, Employees' Provident Fund, Royal Malaysian Police and the Department of Statistics Malaysia, each chapter presents statistical trends reflecting the four financial vulnerabilities. In-depth analyses of the literature reveal three broad psychological domains (cognition, motivation, and disposition) and specific psychological factors (e.g. over-confidence, self-control, social norms, and financial literacy) that significantly influence consumers' financial decisions. The four financial vulnerabilities investigated in this book directly address the strategic outcomes of the Malaysian ...
