Corn among the Indians of the upper Missouri by George F Will( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 428 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

The Tunisia of Ahmad Bey, 1837-1855 by L. Carl Brown( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Under the energetic but confused prodding of the activist ruler Ahmad Bey, Tunisia made its first effort to institute European-inspired political and military reforms. L. Carl Brown's book on the reign of Ahmad Bey is thus a case study in modernization as well as a historical survey of Tunisia in the mid-nineteenth century. Professor Brown explains the workings of the traditional political system, an elaborate blend of Hafsid and Ottoman governmental ideas and practices. He explores the ways in which the changes imposed on Tunisia by the West made this system unworkable. Turning to the modernization movement itself, the author argues that the first phase of modernization was almost exclusively in the hands of the existing political elite, whose background, education, career pattern, and self-image he examines. This elite, working within a political climate characterized by a close interweaving of domestic and diplomatic concerns, developed an operating style described as collaborationist modernization. In addition to recapturing in a narrative history the age of Ahmad Bey and the political class over which he ruled, Professor Brown fits the Tunisian story of these years into the broader historical context of change imposed by the West on the rest of the world.Originally published in 1975.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Convergence culture : where old and new media collide by Henry Jenkins( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 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

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
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 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
Birth control in America : the career of Margaret Sanger by David M Kennedy( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The relation between Margaret Sanger's character and the nature of the birth control movement she led in the U.S. is explored from 1912, when her pioneering work began, until 1945, when, simultaneously, the U.S. government accepted the idea of birth control and Mrs. Sanger retired from leadership of the movement. The book tries to illuminate, through Mrs. Sanger's life, an aspect of American society of that period, the context in which Mrs. Sanger worked, and the attitudinal and institutional responses she evoked. The focus is on the public career of Margaret Sanger, not her private life. A thorough bibliographical essay and selected bibliography are included at the end
