In Searching for Freedom After the Civil War: Klansman, Carpetbagger, Scalawag, and Freedman, G. Ward Hubbs uses a stark and iconic political cartoon to illuminate postwar conflicts over the meaning of freedom in the American South. The cartoon first appeared in the Tuskaloosa Independent Monitor, published by local Ku Klux Klan boss Ryland Randolph, as a swaggering threat aimed at three individuals. Hanged from an oak branch clutching a carpetbag marked “OHIO” is the Reverend Arad S. Lakin, the Northern-born incoming president of the University of Alabama. Swinging from another noose is Dr. Noah B. Cloud - agricultural reformer, superintendent of education, and deemed by Randolph a “scalawag” for joining Alabama’s reformed state government. The accompanying caption, penned in purple prose, similarly threatens Shandy Jones, a politically active local man of color. Using a dynamic and unprecedented approach that interprets the same events through four points of view, Hubbs artfully unpacks numerous layers of meaning behind this brutal two-dimensional image.The four men associated with the cartoon - Randolph, Lakin, Cloud, and Jones - were archetypes of those who were seeking to rebuild a South shattered by war. Their lives, but especially their four very different understandings of freedom, help to explain many of the conflicts of the 1860s.General listeners of this highly accessible volume will discover fascinating new insights about life during and after America’s greatest crisis.The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks."Well-written and thoroughly researched. Its ambitious dissection of the manifold concept of freedom is illuminating and rewarding." (The Alabama Review)“A marvelously original approach for studying Reconstruction.” (George C. Rable, author of God’s Almost Chosen Peoples) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/129957/bk_acx0_129957_sample.mp3.

Grower's Market: A Novel of Free Enterprise in ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Grower's Market is set in remote marijuana country peopled with characters whose backgrounds are diverse and whose futures are uncertain. Sunbeam, who entered adult life as a 1960s San Francisco hippie girl, moved north searching for peace and quiet in unspoiled nature. Eventually she ended up running the Bird of Prey Tavern and growing enough weed to support her tranquil life. The men who eventually work for her - Shadow, Shrimp, Stones, Toon, and Shakespeare - are combat veterans searching for some of the same things Sunbeam found. A Vietnam vet named Case, a widower, is Sunbeam's neighbor. Living on the top floor of the tavern is Rainbow, a runaway from Texas who tends bar and nurses her husband, a quadriplegic known as Uncle Sam. Shadow and Shrimp plan to take the money they've earned growing weed and open a restaurant. Shakespeare is hard at work on a novel about a hero named Superpenis, modeled after the cartoon character Plastic Man, and a New York publisher is interested. The heavily tattooed Toon sees himself as a living visual symbol of a world gone mad, and Stones has fallen in love with a virtual stranger at a homeless shelter. But now in the second decade of the 21st century, new people have arrived to claim space in the quiet valleys, next to the clear-flowing creeks, along the green mountainsides. They are large-scale growers, armed gangs, corrupt cops, and drug cartels, and violence and death come with them. Shadow, Shrimp, Shakespeare, Toon, and Stones must defend their turf against more heavily armed men who don't mind declaring war to claim this marijuana country as their own. 1. Language: English.

Human
4,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Human is the story of an inner struggle for understanding and illumination told by the poor sod whose tortured personality it explores. It follows the madcap progress of an unlikely inner-space potholer who eventually discovers truth isn't all it's cracked up to be where the mysteries of existence are concerned and ultimately moves out beyond all that (with a little help from his dead mother, a rock legend, a trippy professor, and an infamous scraggy cartoon character). Allegedly a journey into the would-be mystical heart of the human soul - and the only sure path to spiritual awakening you're likely to encounter this side of the great nothingness - Human purportedly charts the trail you need to follow if you genuinely want to find yourself without really trying. Yes - and draws you into the beginnings of the Fictish struggle for world domination; that too. Fictional, if you want to see it that way - but, then, what isn't? Try the cover story if you still need convincing: So... A book called 'Human'; 'Fict or Fuct!' scribble on the cover. For crazycuts only, by the look (no quarter asked or given). Chap scrabbles out from an everyday life, searching for himself and his dead mother, wondering why he often feels he isn't who he says he is; that he isn't real. Struggles with the logic of existence for a bit; makes mind-expanding discoveries along the way about fact, fiction, and the arcane art of the soulcatcher; finally ends up somewhere unexpected, conspiring to recruit a genius like you to help save humanity from itself (through transcendence - whatever that is). Want to give it a whirl, too, don't you, doozy-drawers; change the world an' all? Course you do! Brilliant mind like yours? Who else, if not you, right? So what you waiting for, munchkin? Applause? More chance of catching the clap around here, oh worthy one... Open it, go on, why don't you. See if you don't end up somewhere interesting...
