Cy Young : an American baseball hero by Scott Longert( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cy Young was one of the hardest-throwing pitchers of all time. He recorded three no-hitters-including a perfect game-and accumulated more than 2,800 strikeouts on his way to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Scott H. Longert uses Young's life story to introduce middle-grade readers to the game, explaining balls, strikes, and outs in an easy-to-understand way. Longert narrates each season and each milestone game with an enthusiastic play-by-play that is sure to draw readers into the excitement on the field and in the crowd, fostering a better understanding of and a passion for baseball. Baseball fans today know Cy Young's name chiefly through the award given in his honor each year to the best pitcher in the National and the American Leagues. Denton True "Cyclone" Young won more than five hundred games over a career that spanned four decades, a record that no other major league pitcher has come close to matching. In addition to being the winningest pitcher in baseball history, he was also a kind, self-effacing, and generous man. Born into a farm family in rural Ohio, he never lost touch with the small-town values he grew with"--

Traitors and true Poles : narrating a Polish-American identity, 1880-1939 by Karen Majewski( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first extended look at Polish-language fiction written by turn-of-the-century immigrants, a forgotten body of American ethnic literature. Addressing a blind spot in our understanding of immigrant and ethnic identity and culture, Traitors and True Poles challenges perceptions of a silent and passive Polish immigration by giving back its literary voice."--Jacket
Weedeater : an illustrated novel by Robert Gipe( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Weedeater is a contemporary story of love and loss told by a pair of eastern Kentucky mountaineers. Gene is a lovelorn lawnman who bears witness to the misadventures of a family entangled in drugs, artmaking, and politics, a family beset by environmental and self-destruction. And a young mother, Dawn Jewell, is at the center of the family. She spends the pages of Weedeater searching--for lost family members, lost youth, lost community, and lost heart. Weedeater is a story about how we put our lives back together when we lose the things we thought we couldn't bear losing, how we find new purpose in what we thought were scraps and trash caught in the weeds. Weedeater picks up six years after the end of Robert Gipe's first novel, Trampoline, and continues the story of the people of Canard County, Kentucky. In Weedeater, the reader finds Canard County living through the last hurrah of the coal industry and the most turbulent and deadly phase of the community's battle with opioid abuse. The events it chronicles are frantic, but its voice is by turns taciturn and angry, filled with humor and stoic grace"--
The Moxon Tennyson : a landmark in Victorian illustration by Simon Cooke( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward Moxon's 1857 edition of Alfred, Lord Tennyson's Poems dramatically redefined the relationship between images and words in print. Cooke's study, the first book to address the subject in over 120 years, presents a sweeping analysis of the illustrators and the complex and challenging ways in which they interpreted Tennyson's poetry. This book considers the volume's historical context, examining in detail the roles of publisher, engravers, and binding designer, as well as the material difficulties of printing its fine illustrations, which recreate the effects of painting. Arranged thematically and reproducing all the original images, the chapters present a detailed reappraisal of the original volume and the distinctive culture that produced it"--
The Scripps school : its stories, people, and legacy( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After its founding in 1924, what is now the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism quickly became one of the premier programs in the country. For decades, it has produced leaders who have reached the highest levels of journalism and communication in their careers, and their success is a direct product not only of the education they get in Athens, but of the community it fosters. In this book, nearly 100 alumni, faculty, friends, and current students offer their stories of life at and after Scripps. The result is a multilayered, inspiring portrait of the school and how it shapes those who pass through its doors. At the smae time, The Scripps School gives a nuanced history of journalism education at Ohio University. From covering assassinations and presidential elections to major moments in sports, alumni have documented the unprecedented and the historic, and here, they show just how Scripps prepared them to be there"--Jacket
The memory of place : a phenomenology of the uncanny by Dylan Trigg( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While developing these original analyses, Trigg engages in thoughtful and innovative ways with the philosophical and literary tradition, from Gaston Bachelard to Pierre Nora, H.R Lovecraft to Martin Heidegger. Breathing a strange new life into phenomenology, The Memory of Place argues that the eerie disquiet of the uncanny is at the core of the remembering body, and thus of ourselves. The result is a compelling and novel rethinking of memory and place that should spark new conversations across the field of place studies
The politics of morality : the church, the state, and reproductive rights in postsocialist Poland by Joanna Mishtal( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the hope and enthusiasm that followed the collapse of Poland's state socialism in 1989, political forces that had lain concealed emerged and established new religious-nationalist orthodoxy. As the Catholic Church emerged as a political force in the Polish government, it precipitated a rapid erosion of reproductive rights, especially the right to abortion, which had been relatively well established. In The Politics of Morality, Joanna Mishtal explores this expansion of power by the religious right, along with the new reproductive governance and its little-studied implications for women. She examines the contradiction between an emerging democracy on one hand, and a declining tolerance for reproductive rights, women's rights, and political and religious pluralism on the other. At the same time, women resist these strictures by pursuing abortion illegally, defying religious prohibitions on contraception, and forming advocacy groups. Surveillance, control, and abuse of power are persistent themes in this revealing ethnography, which will speak to scholars of women's rights, political history, and Eastern Europe
On the motion and immobility of Douve by Yves Bonnefoy( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking liberties : gender, transgressive patriotism, and Polish drama, 1786-1989 by Halina Filipowicz( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As narrow, nationalist views of patriotic allegiance have become widespread and are routinely invoked to justify everything from flag-waving triumphalism to xenophobic bigotry, the concept of a nonnationalist patriotism has vanished from public conversation. Taking Liberties is a thoughtful and deliberative study of what may be called patriotism without borders: a nonnational form of loyalty compatible with the universal principles and practices of democracy and human rights, respectful of ethnic and cultural diversity, and, overall, open-minded and inclusive. Moving beyond a traditional study of Polish dramatic literature, Halina Filipowicz turns to the plays themselves and to archival materials, ranging from parliamentary speeches to polemical pamphlets and verse broadsides, to explore the cultural phenomenon of transgressive patriotism and its implications for society in the twenty-first century. Three major themes unite this exploration: controversies over "true" and "false" patriotism; disputes over class and gender boundaries; and imaginative attempts to expand the meaning of "us" to take in "not-us," and perhaps even to undo the whole opposition between "us" and "them." In addition to recovering lost or forgotten materials, the author builds an innovative conceptual and methodological framework to make sense of those materials and to challenge many long-standing assumptions about Polish cultural and intellectual history. Taking Liberties contributes to the debate over the meaning and practice of patriotism"--

Writing the Polish American woman in postwar ethnic fiction by Grażyna J Kozaczka( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though often unnoticed by scholars of literature and history, Polish American women have for decades been fighting back against the patriarchy they encountered in America and the patriarchy that followed them from Poland. Through close readings of several Polish American and Polish Canadian novels and short stories published over the last seven decades, Writing the Polish American Woman in Postwar Ethnic Fiction traces the evolution of this struggle and women's efforts to construct gendered and classed ethnicity. Focusing predominantly on work by North American born and immigrant authors that represents the Polish American Catholic tradition, Grażyna J. Kozaczka puts texts in conversation with other American ethnic literatures. She positions ethnic gender construction and performance at an intersection of social class, race, and sex. She explores the marginalization of ethnic female characters in terms of migration studies, theories of whiteness, and the history of feminist discourse. Writing the Polish American Woman in Postwar Ethnic Fiction tells the complex story of how Polish American women writers have shown a strong awareness of their oppression and sought empowerment through resistive andtransgressive behaviors"--

Between you and I : dialogical phenomenology by Beata Stawarska( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classical phenomenology has suffered from an individualist bias and a neglect of the communicative structure of experience, especially the phenomenological importance of the addressee, the inseparability of I and You, and the nature of the alternation between them. Beata Stawarska remedies this neglect by bringing relevant contributions from cognate empirical disciplines-such as sociolinguistics and developmental psychology, as well as the dialogic tradition in philosophy-to bear on phenomenological inquiry. Taken together, these contributions substantiate an alternative view of primary I-You
Between the brown and the red : nationalism, Catholicism, and communism in twentieth-century Poland : the politics of Bolesław Piasecki by Mikołaj Stanisław Kunicki( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study of the relationship of nationalism, communism, authoritarianism, and religion in twentieth-century Poland, Mikolaj Kunicki shows how the country's communist rulers tried to adapt communism to local traditions, particularly ethnocentric nationalism and Catholicism. Focusing on the political career of Boleslaw Piasecki, a Polish nationalist politician who started his journey as a fascist before the war and ended it as a procommunist activist, Kunicki demonstrates that Polish Communists reinforced the ethnocentric self-definition of Polishness and--as Piasecki's case proves--prolonged the existence of the nationalist Right. Between the Brown and the Red captures the multifaceted nature of church-state relations in Communist Poland, relations that oscillated between mutual confrontation, accommodation, and dialogue rather than stagnating in a state of constant struggle. Contrary to assumptions, under Communism the bond between religion and nation in Poland grew stronger. Between the Brown and the Red also introduces to the reader one of the most fascinating figures in the history of twentieth-century Poland and the Communist world
The clash of moral nations : cultural politics in Piłsudski's Poland, 1926-1935 by Eva Plach( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The May 1926 Coup D'etat in Poland inaugurated what has become known as the period of sanacja or "cleansing." This is a study of the political culture of interwar Poland. It shifts the focus from political contexts and examines instead the sanacja's open-ended and malleable language of purification, rebirth, and moral regeneration
African Islam and Islam in Africa : encounters between Sufis and Islamists by Eva Evers Rosander( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This text explores the theme of intra-Islamic tensions in North and West Africa, the result largely of the rise of radical Islamist movements in countries such as Egypt, Algeria and the Sudan
Trapeze : the unexpurgated diary of Anaïs Nin, 1947-1955 by Anaïs Nin( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Anaïs Nin made her reputation through publication of her edited diaries and the carefully constructed persona they presented. It was not until decades later, when the diaries were published in their unexpurgated form, that the world began to learn the full details of Nin's fascinating life and the emotional and literary high-wire acts she committed both in documenting it and in defying the mores of 1950s America. Trapeze begins where the previous volume, Mirages, left off: when Nin met Rupert Pole, the young man who became not only her lover but later her husband in a bigamous marriage. It marks the start of what Nin came to call her "trapeze life," swinging between her longtime husband, Hugh Guiler, in New York and her lover, Pole, in California, a perilous lifestyle she continued until her death in 1977. Today what Nin did seems impossible, and what she sought perhaps was impossible: to find harmony and completeness within a split existence. It is a story of daring and genius, love and pain, largely unknown until now"--
