Corn among the Indians of the upper Missouri by George F Will( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Corn occupied an important place in the lives of many Native communities that lived along the Upper Missouri River. In this landmark book, George F. Will and George E. Hyde introduce readers to some fifty varieties of native corn discovered in the Missouri Valley. Equally important, they provide an indispensable overview of Indian agricultural techniques there, including methods of harvesting and storing the crop, the preparation of corn for food, and the role of the crop in intertribal and Indian-white trade. Corn was not only grown, traded, and eaten, it also had spiritual significance. A final contribution of this book is a discussion of the presence and value of corn in American Indian myth, religion, and ritual"--Publisher description

This volume recounts the clashes and intrigues that played out over the landscape of the Old Southwest and across six decades as the Spanish, French, British, and ultimately Americans vied for control. Rivalry began soon after initial discovery, mapping, and exploration as the world powers, particularly England and France, competed for control of the lucrative fur trade in the Mississippi valley. The French attempted to establish trade networks stretching from the Atlantic Ocean inland to the Mississippi River and northward from ports on the Gulf of Mexico to the Ohio River. But they found the

To the glory of her sex : women's roles in the composition of medieval texts by Joan M Ferrante( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the Glory of Her Sex presents an account of medieval women's activities as correspondents, readers, writers, and literary patrons from antiquity through the fourteenth century. The writings explored here represent a cross-section of virtually every field in historical and literary studies, including Latin literature, romance literature in French, political and religious correspondence, theological and moral treatises written for women, and histories and biographies commissioned by or addressed to women. Reading in the public and private correspondence of medieval women, for example, Ferrante discovered to what degree their involvement in affairs of the world and their role in the work of prominent men have been underestimated. Among the major figures in this panorama are Elisabeth Schonau, Hildegard of Bingen, Hrotsvit, Marie de France, and Christine de Pizan

Convergence culture : where old and new media collide by Henry Jenkins( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Media analyst Jenkins delves beneath the new media hype to uncover the important cultural transformations that are taking place as media converge. He takes us into the secret world of Survivor Spoilers, where avid internet users pool their knowledge to unearth the show's secrets before they are revealed on the air. He shows us how The Matrix has pushed transmedia storytelling to new levels, creating a fictional world where consumers track down bits of the story across multiple media channels. Jenkins argues that struggles over convergence will redefine the face of American popular culture: industry leaders see opportunities to direct content across many channels to increase revenue and broaden markets; at the same time, consumers envision a liberated public sphere, free of network controls. Jenkins explains the cultural shift as consumers fight for control across disparate channels, changing the way we do business, elect our leaders, and educate our children.--From publisher description

Owen Lattimore and the "loss" of China by Robert P Newman( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 1950 Senator Joseph R. McCarthy accused Owen Lattimore, a distinguished China scholar at Johns Hopkins University, of being "the top Soviet espionage agent in the U.S." The Senate Foreign Relations Committee exonerated Lattimore four months later, but for the next two years Pat McCarran and his Senate Internal Security Committee hounded him. McCarran's subcommittee issued a 5,712-page report, based on perjured testimony, claiming that Lattimore had been a "conscious, articulate instrument of the Communist conspiracy." McCarran then forced the Justice Department to indict Lattimore for perjury, bringing Roy M. Cohn to Washington to draw up the indictment. The FBI was ordered to the ends of the earth to find some credible witness who would testify that Lattimore had served the Communists. No such witness was found. Finally, in 1955 Attorney General Herbert Brownell dismissed the case. Lattimore was a victim of the virulent witch hunts that took place in the U.S. in the 1950s after China, our friend and ally in World War II, went over to that reviled enemy, communism. Americans could not believe that China made this choice freely; its adherence to the World Communist Conspiracy must have been coerced by Soviet manipulation and domestic subversion by Americans. Some Communist mastermind in the American government had to be blamed for our "loss" of China. Lattimore, who had never been in the State Department but who had warned that China was not a stooge of Stalinist Russia and that Mao Zedong had come to power on his own, become the scapegoat. In this magisterial biography, Robert Newman follows the career of Owen Lattimore, scholar-adventurer, through his journeys in Central Asia, his service in both the Chinese Nationalist and American governments in World War II, his tribulations as Joe McCarthy's flagship heretic and McCarran's alleged Communist mastermind, his brilliant academic career in England, and finally his return to Central Asia as the foremost advocate of Mongolian nationalism and independence. Newman proves definitively that there was never any case against Lattimore. His book is based on the most important parts of the 38,900-page FBI Lattimore file--arguably the most complete and candid file on a major prosecution ever released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It shows that despite the pressure of the Senate inquisitors, hard-bitten FBI agents knew all along that Lattimore was never pro-Communist
