27 Views of Raleigh

release date: Sep 10, 2013
27 Views of Raleigh
27 VIEWS of RALEIGH: The City of Oaks in Prose & Poetry features the work of twenty-seven (plus two) Raleighites who create a literary montage of North Carolina's capital city in fiction, essays, and poetry. Novelists, poets, essayists, journalists, and even a science fiction writer capture the city in a variety of genres—spanning neighborhoods, generations, cultural and racial experiences, historic eras—reflecting the social, historic, and creative fabric of Raleigh. As Wilton Barnhardt writes in the book's introduction, “We seem to have flourished not because we have solved all the problems of the New South, despite leading the way now and again, but because we the citizens of Raleigh decided to be erudite, cultured, enriched, and entertained . . ."

Modern motherhood

release date: Jul 19, 2013
Modern motherhood
This book examines women’s experiences of motherhood in England in the years between 1945 and 2000. Based on a new body of 160 oral history interviews, the book offers the first comprehensive historical study of the experience of motherhood in the second half of the twentieth century. Motherhood is an area where a number of discourses and practices meet. The book therefore forms a thematic study looking at aspects of mothers’ lives such as education, health care, psychology, labour market trends and state intervention. Looking through the prism of motherhood provides a way of understanding the complex social changes that have taken place in the post-war world. This book will be essential reading for students and researchers in the field of twentieth-century British social history. However it will also be of interest to scholars in related fields and a general readership with an interest in British social history, and the history of family and community in modern Britain. 'A fascinating survey of women's experience of motherhood', 'eminently readable', 'a solid and thoughtful study', 'an outstanding piece of oral history', and 'ambitiously wide ranging'. The judging panel for the Women’s History Network Book Prize, 2013.

Unlocking the Master Narrative

release date: Jul 17, 2018
Unlocking the Master Narrative
By combining research and analysis from the fields of American history and intercultural communication, Unlocking the Master Narrative: History and Intercultural Communication helps students examine why we communicate the way in which we do, taking into account history, culture, worldviews, and the myriad ways in which we share information. The book examines numerous co-cultures within the United States--including those of indigenous peoples, African Americans, Caucasians, Mexican Americans, and Chinese Americans--with special emphasis on the historic perspective of each group's experiences and struggles. The examination deepens as students learn how the role of communication within these groups evolved as a result of those experiences and struggles, and how communication styles and patterns continue to influence and shape these cultural groups today. Unique in approach and cross-disciplinary in nature, Unlocking the Master Narrative provides students with a revolutionary lens that helps them understand each other more deeply and distinctively. The book is well-suited for courses in American history, intercultural communication, ethnic and cultural studies, sociology, and anthropology. Scott M. Finnie, Ph.D., is director of the Africana Studies Program at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington, and has published numerous articles in the arena of civil rights and African American history. Angela Davis Wizner, M.A., is an educator in the Department of Communication Studies at Spokane Community College in Spokane, Washington, and has 30 years of experience as an author, trainer, and activist in social justice issues.

Pre-school Childcare in England, 1939-2010

release date: Jan 01, 2015
Pre-school Childcare in England, 1939-2010
Pre-school childcare in England, 1939-2010 is an innovative study of the relationship between child development theories, childcare practices and children's experiences. Looking at childcare outside the home in four different forms: day nurseries, nursery schools and classes, playgroups, andchildminders, the book navigates how both individual families and wider society managed the care of young children in the context of dramatic increases in the employment of mothers. The book demonstrates that three principal arguments shaped the experience of all those involved. The first was thatcare for the under-fives was the responsibility of individual families, not the state. The second was that young children were best off at home with their mothers. Thirdly, it was desired that any care that was offered to the under-fives should be cost effective. Pre-school childcare explores howthese beliefs influenced statutory and voluntary provision.The book's importance of this monograph also lies in its innovative approach. Through its use of a new body of oral history interviews with childcare workers and users, the book charts how the debates surrounding child development influenced the provision and practice of care and the consequences onthose involved. Childcare remains an issue fraught with controversies and in the public eye. Through its consideration of the relationship between current perspectives and past attitudes, Pre-school childcare will be valuable reading for students, researchers and practitioners working in earlyyears' services and related disciplines, and for those interested in twentieth century British social history.

Plum Wine
Barbara Jefferson, a young American teaching in Tokyo in the 1960s, is set on a life-changing quest when her Japanese surrogate mother, Michi, dies, leaving her a tansu of homemade plum wines wrapped in rice paper. Within the papers Barbara discovers writings in Japanese calligraphy that comprise a startling personal narrative. With the help of her translator, Seiji Okada, Barbara begins to unravel the mysteries of Michi's life, a story that begins in the early twentieth century and continues through World War II and its aftermath. As Barbara and Seiji translate the plum wine papers they form an intimate bond, with Michi a ghostly third in what becomes an increasingly uneasy triangle. Barbara is deeply affected by the revelation that Michi and Seiji are hibakusha, survivors of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, and even harder for her to understand are the devastating psychological effects wrought by war. Plum Wine examines human relationships, cultural differences, and the irreparable consequences of war in a story that is both original and timeless. 2007 A Notable Fiction Book of 2007, selected by the Kiriyama Prize Committee Winner, Fiction Award, Southern Independent Bookstore Alliance Notable Fiction, Kiriyama Pacific Rim Book Prize
