Lee after the war by Marshall W Fishwick( Book )

13 editions published between 1963 and 1973 in English and held by 1,223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"His army shattered, his cause lost, Lee at the close of the Civil War seemed destined to spend his final years as a prisoner on parole. Yet it is possible that he left a deeper mark on America's history in the four years after Appomattox than during the war." "In this book, Marshall Fishwick, who teaches at Washington and Lee, gives us a close and sympathetic view of the General after the war. His point of view is that of a historian who has lived among the scenes where Lee spent his post-bellum years. The result is a fascinating new interpretation of one of the greatest and most generous men in American history."--Jacket

Popular culture in a new age by Marshall W Fishwick( )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a Foreword by Dr. Fishwick's student--Tom Wolfe. This book redefines popular culture in the light of the revolutionary changes brought about by the information revolution and the digital divide. It explores the phenomenal growth and extension of popular culture in the last decade and ties in the vast changes brought about by technology and the Internet. In an era when American television and the Internet reach virtually every corner of the globe, Popular Culture in a New Age shows how the poorly understood and often underestimated area known as popular culture affects all of our lives. Beginning with an evaluation of the millennium celebrations and the enormous error of Y2K madness, Popular Culture in a New Age then moves on to the?New Gold Rush? brought about by technology and takes a hard look at its risks. The book examines a wide variety of pop culture phenomena such as carnivals, celebrities, and the road from nineteenth century humbuggery (P.T. Barnum's term) to today's hype. In Popular Culture in a New Age you'll learn about: the three faces of popular culture: folk, fake, and pop--how they relate and how they differ today's popular icons the empire of Disney World Marshall McLuhan, our era's most profound and shocking electronic thinker African-American popular culture and stylePopular Culture in a New Age gives characterization to the postmodern world in a chapter on?postmodern pop,? followed by the shift from civil religion to civil disobedience and the?myth of success.?

As religious fervor grows, Dr. Fishwick, a recipient of the Ray and Pat Browne Award for Lifetime Achievement from The American Culture Association, takes a sweeping look at religion in the United States--the country with the highest church attendance in the Western world. Popular religion can take many shapes and forms. It can wax and wane, but it cannot be eliminated or ignored. That is what prompted him to write Great Awakenings: Popular Religion and Popular Culture.

In Probing Popular Culture: On and Off the Internet, one of the leading authorities in American and popular culture studies presents an eye-opening examination of the Information Age{u2019}s influence on what we do, how we live, and who we are. Dr. Marshall Fishwick, author of the textbooks Great Awakenings: Popular Religion and Popular Culture; Popular Culture: Cavespace to Cyberspace; and Popular Culture in a New Age focuses his penetrating gaze upon the impact of the icons and events that color the fabric of our lives. Peppered with quotes from influential figures ranging from Plato to P. T. Barnum, this book provides food for thought that will spark smart discussion about every aspect of popular culture{u2014}from Henry Ford to Y2K, the impact on popular culture of the September 11 tragedy, and more. Probing Popular Culture examines our cultural icons, our fads, our hopes, and our fears-and ties them into the images we see everyday in the news and on the Web. Dr. Fishwick probes the most recent developments, crises, and anxieties encountered on our headlong dash down the Information Superhighway{u2014}and illustrates the reasons behind the media madness. Religion, sports, food, comic books, TV, and movies-none escape his microscopic dissection. Probing Popular Culture focuses on: historical pioneers{u2014}from Socrates to Walt Whitman and Walt Disney-who pondered and studied the phenomenon known as ?popular culture? culture frenzies, why Americans have a tendency toward trends, fads, and frenzies, the emergence of America as a ?super? popular culture with current predominance in world media, movies, clothing, music, and food, the loss of old traditions and the invention of new ones ?hype????????its definition, its origin, and its negative effect on the human race, the ?gaps? that have developed all over the world{u2014}mainly between the United States and other countries{u2014}because of the introduction of the Information Age in popular culture and much more including: who will arbitrate, regulate, and modify our flow of information? How much is too much? What is at stake? What lies ahead? Probing Popular Culture takes an incisive look at the current situation and probes for answers. With a foreword by Dr. Fishwick{u2019}s former student, Tom Wolfe, a preface by Peter Rollins (Editor-in-Chief of Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Film and Television Studies), and the inclusion of opinions from other authorities on popular culture, this volume will be interesting and informative to the college student, the general reader, and the specialist--from the publisher's website
