Of chiles, cacti, and fighting cocks : notes on the American West by Frederick W Turner( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary Wild West has long exerted a powerful influence in our national imagination. In this collection of colorful essays, Frederick Turner--historian, biographer, and naturalist--looks at the ways in which the legend and reality coexist, not always peaceably, in the modern American West. Here are the wild horses competing with cattle for forage on the semi-arid range, fervently protected from extinction by people like "Wild Horse Annie," a Nevada woman who fought for twenty years to "save a memory." Another Western icon, the saguaro cactus, stands as sentinel and symbol against a backdrop of ever encroaching land development. Other essays describe the strange, hostile world of cockfighting (legal in four states), selling the Old West in art and literature, the cultural importance of traditional Western foods, and the sturdy Basque community in the Southwest. The final essay, "Visions of the Pacific," examines the idea of the frontier and the often inglorious history of exploration. In certain ways, the reality of the contemporary West seems utterly divorced from its myth : the problems of urbanization and acculturation have scant connection to Billy the Kid, Custer, and wild horses. Yet the West continues to be what it is, partly because we have imagined it so. Our notions of history itself, Turner suggests, are less often formed by what actually happened than by what people thought and said about it. The fascinating combination of oral history, careful observation, and finely drawn personal reflection gives us the echoes of cowboys and Indians, vast open spaces, the big sky, and a zeal for freedom--in total, the essence of life beyond the Mississippi

Police militarization : policy changes and stakeholders' opinions in the United States by Frederick Turner( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Brief examines the "militarization" of law enforcement in the United States through the lens of the stakeholders primarily responsible for implementing, funding, and enacting the practice. Largely a result of policies such as the war on drugs, war on terror, and the 1033 program, there has been a gradual but dramatic rise in the use of military-grade weapons, equipment, and tactics used by police agencies across the United States. This Brief examines the level of support for various aspects of police militarization by lawmakers, police executives, and local police officers, and how their opinions may differ based upon their current position or demographic features using a series of analyses and propensity score matching techniques. This Brief also provides an overview of some of the key policy changes responsible for police militarization, and provides insights into the views held by policymakers and law enforcement on various aspects of the practice. The results indicate that while many responsible for this shift are in favor of paramilitary procurement programs, there are differing opinions on key issues such as oversight and use of military-grade weapons, equipment and paramilitary tactics. This work will be of interest to researchers in criminology and criminal justice, particularly those with an interest in policing studies, as well as related fields such as public policy, public administration, emergency management, and sociology
