The 60s communes : hippies and beyond by Timothy Miller( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest wave of communal living in American history crested in the tumultuous 1960s era including the early 1970s. To the fascination and amusement of more decorous citizens, hundreds of thousands of mostly young dreamers set out to build a new culture apart from the established society. Widely believed by the larger public to be sinks of drug-ridden sexual immorality, the communes both intrigued and repelled the American people. The intentional communities of the 1960s era were far more diverse than the stereotype of the hippie commune would suggest. A great many of them were religious in basis, stressing spiritual seeking and disciplined lifestyles. Others were founded on secular visions of a better society. Hundreds of them became so stable that they survive today. This book surveys the broad sweep of this great social yearning from the first portents of a new type of communitarianism in the early 1960s through the waning of the movement in the mid-1970s. Based on more than five hundred interviews conducted for the 60s Communes Project, among other sources, it preserves a colorful and vigorous episode in American history. The book includes an extensive directory of active and non-active communes, complete with dates of origin and dissolution

The encyclopedic guide to American intentional communities by Timothy Miller( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Commune! The word conjures up images of a few isolated idealists, religious fanatics, and social misfits. A commune is a decidedly marginal blip on the American landscape. Nevertheless communes have studded American history--many thousands of them from the seventeenth century to the present. Although many have heard of the Shakers and (perhaps) the Hutterites and the Harmonists, communes--most of which now prefer to be known as intentional communities--represent a largely hidden slice of American history, despite the fact that they have been home to over a million Americans. Many small studies and surveys of American communal movements have been published over the last two hundred years, but the phenomenon of communal living in its fullness remains largely in the shadows. This work has been compiled to dispel those shadows by providing brief sketches of as many American intentional communities as I have been able to identify from the early days of European colonization down to the present [approximately 3,000]. The work also seeks to provide a few reliable references to primary and secondary sources of information on each community."--Page xi

Generative Models of Disfluency by Timothy Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis describes a generative model for representing disfluent phenomena in human speech. This model makes use of observed syntactic structure present in disfluent speech, and uses a right-corner transform on syntax trees to model this structure in a very natural way. Specifically, the phenomenon of speech repair is modeled by explicitly modeling the partially completed constituent structure, building up phrasal structure as it is read in, and allowing incomplete constituents as part of the final structure of an utterance. This model is then implemented in a working system for parsing transcribed text. This system maps transformed syntax trees to a hierarchical time-series model, which is able to parse in linear time by implementing a fixed-depth stack. The results of this system dramatically improve parsing and repair detection over standard baselines, and are approaching the performance of models that are not constrained by incremental processing and psycholinguistic plausibility. These results are then analyzed, and the parameters to this parser are varied systematically to examine the effect of various settings and models of repair. Several extensions to the model are introduced which incorporate additional features such as lexical identity while remaining incremental, suggesting suitability for extended models of disfluency as well as providing a starting point for psycholinguistic models of disfluency. Finally, this thesis concludes by laying out several possible future research directions, and by summarizing the work produced so far.

The modern utopian : alternative communities of the '60s and '70s by Richard Fairfield( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back to the Land. Communes. Intentional Communities. Sustainable Living. It happened in the late '60s and early '70s; it's coming back again. Forty years ago, a corrupt government, rampant consumerism, ecological concerns, and the alienation of modern life drove thousands of idealistic young people to the countryside with dreams of starting their own communities. Some were dazzling creative experiments that burned bright and brief; others evolved through the years and still exist today. Global warming and peak oil concerns, eco-housing, permaculture, and even the Burning Man festival are windows into this tradition of social transformation that is reshaping our culture today. The Modern Utopian by Richard Fairfield is the definitive exploration of the alternative communities that reshaped progressive culture in the '70s. Fairfield spent the better part of a decade visiting and reporting on communes of all types to create an intimate and fascinating view into communal living. This expansively illustrated compilation visits the notorious Drop City, John Sinclair's Translove Energies in Detroit, Stephen Gaskin's farm, and dozens of other alternative communities across the nation. In new supplementary articles, author Timothy Miller (Religious Movements in the United States) discusses some of the ten thousand intentional communities that now span the United States, from today's countercultural edge to senior citizen cohousing

Dealing With Russian Tactical Nuclear Weapons( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Historically, nuclear arms control has focused on long-range strategic systems term, although Russia continually tried to include U.S. tactical weapons in such talks as well--a move that the United States always resisted. Only in recent years have the tables turned, with the United States now taking the lead on nuclear initiatives. During the Cold War the Soviet Union demanded that American nuclear weapons stationed in European NATO countries be considered strategic, because they could reach the Russian homeland; once negotiations began, however, the Soviets always conceded the case. Nevertheless, in 1991 and 1992 the presidents of the United States and Russia unilaterally decided to reduce their respective arsenals of NSNW, and in the Helsinki Summit of 1997 they agreed that future strategic nuclear arms control negotiations would include a separate venue for discussions surrounding the nonstrategic weapons of both sides
