The city in African-American literature( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While one of the central drives in classic American letters has been a reflexive desire to move away from the complexity and supposed corruption of cities toward such idealized nonurban settings as Cooper's prairies, Thoreau's woods, Melville's seas, Whitman's open road, and Twain's river, nearly the opposite has been true in African-American letters. Indeed the main tradition of African-American literature has been, for the most part, strikingly positive in its vision of the city. Although never hesitant to criticize the negative aspects of city life, classic African-American writers have only rarely suggested that pastoral alternatives exist for African-Americans and have therefore celebrated in a great variety of ways the possibilities of urban living. For Frederick Douglass, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Ralph Ellison, the city, despite its many problems, has been a place of deliverance and renewal
Contemporary African American fiction : the open journey by Robert Butler( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book argues that from its very beginnings African American journey narratives are distinctively "non-teleological"; that is, they typically resist being directed toward an end point in a particular place and instead exult in movement through indefinite space. They view movement as intrinsically valuable, a process of endless becoming rather than a carefully mapped journey resulting in a completed state of being rooted in a fixed place. As such, these journeys are a compelling metaphor of the American desire for the "new life" consisting of unlimited personal development. The writers examined in this book offer a unique set of variations on this kind of open journey
The Richard Wright encyclopedia by Jerry Washington Ward( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Wright is one of the most important African American writers. He is also one of the most prolific. Best known as the author of Native Son, he wrote 7 novels; 2 collections of short fiction; an autobiography; more than 250 newspaper articles, book reviews, and occasional essays; some 4,000 verses; a photo-documentary; and 3 travel books. By attacking the taboos and hypocrisy that other writers had failed to address, he revolutionized American literature and created a disturbing and realistic portrait of the African American experience. This encyclopedia is a guide to his vast and influential body of works.'''

The effects of the thermal boundary condition and turbulence on heat transfer from a cylinder, flat plate, and turbine blade using the transient shroud and heated-coating techniques by Robert Butler( )

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

A new technique to measure local heat transfer is developed, it and other methods are used to study the effects of the thermal boundary condition on local heat transfer and turbulence level effects on turbine blade heat transfer. The new technique is called the shroud technique and is a variation on the transient method. It is designed for use on arbitrarily shaped models in a wind tunnel. The shroud acts as a protective covering during in-situ heating of the model. A transient is produced by sudden removal of the shroud. Measurements on a cylinder in cross-flow are used as one method for validation of this technique. These measurements showed that the shroud technique produced good results except in the wake region where the duration of the flow development sometimes created problems. The shroud technique and a gold-film heated-coating method are both used for measurements on a flat plate with a laminar boundary layer to investigate the effect of thermal boundary conditions. The results are compared to numerical solutions, done as part of this study, for uniform temperature, uniform heat flux, and transient thermal boundary conditions. The experimental results agreed well with theory with the uniform heat flux producing 36% higher heat transfer rates than those for uniform temperature. The transient results were highly dependent on the non-dimensional temperature used, producing heat transfer rates as low as the uniform temperature or higher than the uniform heat flux boundary conditions

Securing the grid : opportunities and risks in operational technology by Robert Butler( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines threats and risks associated with the convergence of Information Technology and Operational Technology and the growing need for securing converged infrastructure. The author recommends that "NIST, as the premiere standards body, and DHS, as the government's lead implementation arm, need to build on current standards to develop a holistic strategy for securing digital infrastructure and data centers that focuses on expanded information sharing and learning between information technology and operational technology groups."
