Understanding I know why the caged bird sings : a student casebook to issues, sources, and historical documents by Joanne Megna-Wallace( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1,346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maya Angelou's autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was nominated for a National Book Award, yet in 1995 it topped the list of books most frequently challenged in schools and libraries. This interdisciplinary collection of documents and commentary explores the historical and social context, as well as the contemporary issues and controversies, raised by Angelou's autobiography. A rich resource for teachers and students, it will help to enhance the reader's understanding of the historical and social forces that shaped Maya Angelou's experience - race relations in the pre-civil rights South, segregated schools, the African American church, and the African American family. It also examines the issue of childhood sexual abuse, the inclusion of which has been the basis of most of the challenges to the autobiography, and the issue of the work's censorship since its publication

The house, throughout history, in every place in the world, has been built to provide shelter from the elements. The dwellings that have resulted are as different as the people that have built them, the social norms that prevailed at the time and place in which they were built and the natural environment that they adapted to. Studying them now in a comprehensive way allows us to understand the social, political, economic and religious conditions that existed for their inhabitants. They are a three-dimensional record of culture. Twenty-four pages of color images, along with black and white imag

The Mexican War by David Stephen Heidler( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States went to war with Mexico in the spring of 1846 and by the fall of 1847 American soldiers were walking in the streets of Mexico City. The following February, Mexico was forced to sign the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that ceded what became the U.S. Southwest and Pacific Coast. More than an isolated episode, the Mexican War was the culmination of a series of events that began before Mexican independence and included treaty arrangements with Spain, the revolt of Mexico's northern province of Texas, and the growing discord over American reactions to Texan independence. The legacy of the war was dire for both countries. The victorious United States commenced a bitter argument over the fate of slavery in the territories acquired from Mexico that eventually culminated in southern secession and Civil War. Defeated Mexico coped for decades with a ruined economy and a broken political system while nursing a grudge against the Colossus of the North. This book examines these events from both the American and Mexican perspectives."--Jacket
Korea, the divided nation by Edward A Olsen( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prior to Korea's liberation from Japanese colonialism and the country's subsequent division at the end of World War II, the nation had enjoyed a long dynastic history that made the postwar partition particularly traumatic. The ensuing Cold War years soon spawned a very hot Korean War, subsequent decades of strained inter-Korean relations, and tensions in the region surrounding the peninsula. This volume provides readers who are unfamiliar with Korea's heritage with insight into how the two Koreas became engulfed in international geopolitical tensions, including expert analysis of this disjoined nation's background, modern circumstances, and future prospects."
Cultures in conflict--the American Civil War by Steven E Woodworth( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The American Civil War was primarily a conflict of cultures, and slavery was the largest single cultural factor separating North and South. This collection of carefully selected memoirs, diaries, letters, and reminiscences of ordinary Northerners and Southerners who experienced the war as soldiers or civilians brings to life the conflict in culture, principles, attitudes, hopes, courage, and suffering of both sides. Woodworth, a Civil War historian, has selected a wide variety of moving first-person accounts. Each account tells a story of a life and reveals the attitudes of ordinary people and the real conditions of war - both in the field and on the homefront."--Jacket

The evolution of civil-military relations in East-Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union( )

The dismantlement of the communist system of control of the military and its replacement with a democratic model is one of the most significant aspects of the post-communist transition in East-Central Europe and the former Soviet-Union. The success of democratic civil-military reforms is an important and underappreciated measure of the state of democratic transitions in these countries, and it also has important implications for and links with regional security and NATO relations. This book examines the state of democratic civil-military reforms in nine East-Central and former Soviet states: C
