Like a Hurricane: The Indian Movement from Alcatraz to Wounded Knee
Editura: New Press
Anul aparitiei: 1997
It's the mid-1960s, and everyone is fighting back. Black Americans are fighting for civil rights, the counterculture is trying to subvert the Vietnam War, and women are fighting for their liberation. Indians were fighting, too, though it's a fight too few have documented, and even fewer remember. At the time, newspapers and television broadcasts were filled with images of Indian activists staging dramatic events such as the seizure of Alcatraz in 1969, the storming of the Bureau of Indian Affairs building on the eve of Nixon's re-election in 1972, and the American Indian Movement (AIM)-supported seizure of Wounded Knee by the Oglala Sioux in 1973. Like a Hurricane puts these events into historical context and provides one of the first narrative accounts of that momentous period. Unlike most other books written about American Indians, this book does not seek to persuade readers that government policies were cruel and misguided. Nor is it told from the perspective of outsiders looking in. Written by two American Indians, Paul Chaat Smith and Robert Allen Warrior, Like a Hurricane is a gripping account of how for a brief, but brilliant season Indians strategized to change the course ...

The White House Speaks: Presidential Leadership as Persuasion
Editura: PRAEGER FREDERICK A
Anul aparitiei: 1994
This work treats presidential leadership as persuasive communication. The major theories of presidential leadership found in the literature establish the central role of persuasion, and introduce the interpretive systems approach to political communication as a theoretical framework for the study of presidential leadership as persuasion. Case studies examine recent presidents' use of public persuasion to perform their leadership functions. Particular attention is devoted to coalitional constraints on presidential pardoning rhetoric, presidential leadership through the politics of division, the political significance of conflicting political narratives, the sermonic nature of much 20th-century presidential discourse, the difficulties inherent in persuading the public to make sacrifices, and the dangers of relying too heavily on public rhetoric. The concluding chapter considers the rhetoric that contributed to the demise of the Bush presidency, the election of Bill Clinton, and the challenges facing the Clinton presidency.

Our Trials Are a Blessing
Editura: CHAPEL VALLEY CORP
Anul aparitiei: 2010
From the Preface: "I read somewhere that Natalie Wood had a life-long fear of dark, deep ocean water - right up to the night she drowned off Catalina Island. I don't know if that is true, but I do know that I had a life-long fear of ending up in a wheelchair like my uncle. This despite all the doctors' assurances at the time that my uncle's condition was spontaneous and non-hereditary. They were technically correct; my condition is not the same as my uncle's. It is, though, similar in its effects. But that is not the end of the story. Nor is it the beginning. My condition (Friedreich's Ataxia) is not my life. Instead, it provides a backdrop or matrix for all that I am and all that I've done, a platform on which the events of my life have unfolded. At times, especially in the early years, that background was distant, and even irrelevant. Later, it became overwhelming and psychologically paralyzing. More recently, it has faded into the background once again, even though its effects are more pronounced and debilitating. I wouldn't say that it has become a welcome friend, but (to torture a metaphor) it has become an appreciated companion and a valued teacher. My life and attitudes have ...

Men Called Him Master
What kind of men were Jesus' disciples? What was it like to be with Jesus in Palestine? Why did some of the disciples find it so hard to understand Jesus? This book looks to aid those who seek the answers to these often-asked questions, taking you right into Jesus' world to better understand everything that happened so long ago. The stories of Jesus and the disciples in this book are told in different words from those you will find in your Bible, and background has been built in from other records of the time. For example, the Bible gives only the fact that one of the disciples was a Zealot; in this book the disciple is shown speaking and acting as we know Zealots spoke and acted. It is through this combination of Scripture and historical embellishment that the life of Jesus becomes much more comprehensive to the casual reader. Cover photography by Paul Spremulli
