God in the stadium : sports and religion in America by Robert J Higgs( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the worship of Michael Jordan to the downfall of O.J. Simpson, it has become clear that sports and sports heroes have assumed a role in American society far out of proportion to their traditional value. In this powerful critique of present-day American popular culture, Robert J. Higgs examines the complex and increasingly pervasive control that sports wield in shaping the national self-image. He provides a thoughtful history and analysis of how sports and religion have become intertwined and offers a stinging indictment of the sports-religion-media-education complex. Beginning with the pla

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Sixteen essays on literary theory ranging from Aristotle to Coleridge to T.S. Eliot.

The climax of populism: the election of 1896 by Robert Franklin Durden( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Rarely has a third political party in the United States exerted a force upon national events comparable to that of the Populists during the 1890s. This force reached its climax in the presidential race of 1896, when the national reforms epitomized in the cry for free silver were at issue. Yet despite a number of recent studies, confusion and error regarding the Populists in the crucial election of 1896 still persist. Robert F. Durden, by extensive use of the papers of Marion Butler, Populist senator from North Carolina and national chairman of the party during the campaign, sheds new light upon
