Witness to Injustice by David Frost, Jr. Editor Louise Westling with an Other Charles Reagan Wilson There were two events in particular that had a lasting effect on the life of David Frost, Jr. "Watching my parents make moonshine in our back yard in a washpot," he says, "and listening to my parents tell the story of how the Peterson boy was lynched here in Eufaula. My parents would tell it like it had just happened." In this compelling account of his life as an African American in Eufaula, Alabama, Frost illuminates the strange world of the rural South. He was a living witn
Sacred groves and ravaged gardens : the fiction of Eudora Welty, Carson McCullers, and Flannery O'Connor by Louise Hutchings Westling( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Sacred Groves and Ravaged Gardens, Louise Westling explores how the complex, difficult roles of women in southern culture shaped the literary worlds of Eudora Welty, Carson McCullers, and Flannery O'Connor. Tracing the cultural heritage of the South, Westling shows how southern women reacted to the violent, false world created by their men-a world in which women came to be shrouded as icons of purity in atonement for the sins of men. Exposing the actual conditions of women's lives, creating assertive protagonists who resist or revise conventional roles, and exploring rich matriarchal traditions and connections to symbolic landscapes Welty, McCullers, and O'Connor created a body of fiction that enriches and complements the patriarchal version of southern life presented in the works of William Faulkner, John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, and William Styron.-publisher description
The logos of the living world : Merleau-Ponty, animals, and language by Louise Hutchings Westling( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today we urgently need to reevaluate the human place in the world in relation to other animals. This book puts Maurice Merleau-Ponty's philosophy into dialogue with literature, evolutionary biology, and animal studies. In a radical departure from most critical animal studies, it argues for evolutionary continuity between human cultural and linguistic behaviors and the semiotic activities of other animals. In his late work, Derrida complained of philosophers who denied that animals possessed such faculties, but he never investigated the wealth of scientific studies of actual animal behavior. Mo

The green breast of the new world : landscape, gender, and American fiction by Louise Hutchings Westling( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In searching American literary landscapes for what they can reveal about our attitudes toward nature and gender, The Green Breast of the New World considers symbolic landscapes in twentieth-century American fiction, the characters who inhabit those landscapes, and the gendered traditions that can influence the figuration of both of these fictional elements. In this century, says Louise H. Westling, American literary responses to landscape and nature have been characterized by a puzzling mix of eroticism and misogyny, celebration and mourning, and reverence and disregard. Focusing on problems of gender conflict and imperialist nostalgia, The Green Breast of the New World addresses this ambivalence."--BOOK JACKET. "Westling begins with a "deep history" of literary landscapes, looking back to the archaic Mediterranean/Mesopotamian traditions that frame European and American symbolic figurations of humans in the land. Drawing on sources as ancient as the Sumerian Hymns to Innana and the Epic of Gilgamesh, she reveals a tradition of male heroic identity grounded in an antagonistic attitude toward the feminized earth and nature. This identity recently has been used to mask a violent destruction of wilderness and indigenous peoples in the fictions of progress that have shaped our culture."--BOOK JACKET. "Examining the midwestern landscapes of Willa Cather's Jim Burden and Ernest Hemingway's Nick Adams, and the Mississippi Delta of William Faulkner's Thomas Sutpen and Isaac McCaslin and Eudora Welty's plantation families and small-town dwellers, Westling shows that these characters all participate in a cultural habit of gendering the landscape as female and then excusing their mistreatment of it by retreating into a nostalgia that erases their real motives, displaces responsibility, and takes refuge in attitudes of self-pitying adoration."--BOOK JACKET

A global history of literature and the environment by John Parham( Book )

14 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A Global History of Literature and the Environment, an international group of scholars illustrate the immense riches of environmental writing from the earliest literary periods down to the present. It addresses ancient writings about human/animal/plant relations from India, classical Greece, Chinese and Japanese literature, the Maya Popol Vuh, Islamic texts, medieval European works, eighteenth-century and Romantic ecologies, colonial/postcolonial environmental interrelations, responses to industrialization, and the emerging literatures of the world in the present Anthropocene moment. Essays range from Trinidad to New Zealand, Estonia to Brazil. Discussion of these texts indicates a variety of ways environmental criticism can fruitfully engage literary works and cultures from every continent and every historical period. This is a uniquely varied and rich international history of environmental writing from ancient Mesopotamian and Asian works to the present. It provides a compelling account of a topic that is crucial to twenty-first century global literary studies"--

Theoretical and Research Treatment of Community Organization and Interagency Cooperation by Michael C Giammatteo( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nine hypotheses, employing community power as the single dependent variable and arranged under three categories of independent variables, are advanced. These categories are as follows: (1) Methodological Characteristics, (2) Demographic Characteristics, and (3) Economic Characteristics. The following results were obtained: (1) The type of power structure identified by studies that rely on a single method may well be artifacts of that method, (2) Social integration and region, variables which reflect something of the political life of the community, show some association with power structure; and (3) Economic variables reflecting patterns characteristic of increasing industrialization and moderately associated with less concentrated power structures. Implications and a review of literature are included. (Author/CJ)
