Ruth Harriet Louise and Hollywood glamour photography by Robert Dance( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Ruth Harriet Louise joined Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio with "more stars than there are in heaven," she was twenty-two years old and the only woman working as a portrait photographer for the Hollywood studios. In a career that lasted from 1925 until 1930, Louise photographed all the stars, contract players, and many of the hopefuls who passed through the studio's gates, including Greta Garbo, Lon Chaney, John Gilbert, Joan Crawford, Marion Davies, and Norma Shearer. This book, which coincides with a traveling retrospective of Louise's work, is the first collection of her remarkable photographs. Containing more than one hundred breathtaking images, it attests to the talent and vision of a surprisingly unknown photographer who formed the images and helped create the popularity of some of our most enduring stars."--Jacket
The Triangular Traffic in Women, Plants, and Gold : Along the Interoceanic Road in Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia by Ruth Harriet Louise( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract The Triangular Traffic in Women, Plants, and Gold: Along the Interoceanic Road In Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia by Ruth Elizabeth Goldstein Doctor of Philosophy in Medical Anthropology University of California, Berkeley Charles L. Briggs, Chair "The Triangular Traffic in Women, Plants, and Gold: On the Interoceanic Road in Brazil, Peru, and Bolivia" focuses on Peru's Amazonian region of Madre de Dios. Situated near the borders of Brazil and Bolivia, this region has earned the nickname "El Wild Wild West" for the implosion of lawlessness and prostitution reminiscent of the North American gold rush. With the fall of the dollar and international rise in the price of gold, Madre de Dios has seen a massive migration of people--male gold miners and female sex-workers, initially from the Andes. Now men and women from Ecuador, Colombia, and Brazil also make their way to the mines. This dissertation examines the triangular traffic in women destined for the sex-trade, plants employed for reproductive health - often en route to pharmaceutical analysis, and the gold, brought into solid form via mercury that fuels interdependent economies. "Mines are like women," went a common refrain in the illegal rainforest gold mines, "because both are for exploitation," placing the investigation of what constitutes "the human" and human-environmental interactions into the realm of human-environmental extraction. From rainforest to laboratory, brothel to bank, "traffic" depicts physical encounters, collisions, and jams, as well as functioning as an analytic to examine entwined questions of (non)human vitality and the dynamic value of people and things traveling across borders and through global commodity-chains
A survey of 1971-1972 drop-outs in a secondary school by Erykah Badu( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to scrutinize school factors related to dropouts at the secondary level. One senior secondary school comprised the sample for the study. Telephone interviews were conducted with the dropouts; these interviews were loosely structured. And the interviewer encouraged students to talk generally about their school experiences. The information recorded by the interviewer was broken down into the 11 areas specifically queried, and codes were established within each of these broad areas. Approximately half the comments made about teachers or teaching methods were positive and about half were critical. Of the many comments about school or the school environment, roughly one-third were positive. Approximately one-third of the dropouts told the interviewer that they were doing well academically. More than half of the parents of dropouts were disappointed about their child leaving school. A large majority of the dropouts said they would advise other students to remain in school. Close to 40% of the dropouts mentioned that 1971-72 was their first year at the school. (Ck)
