Boom town : how Wal-Mart transformed an all-American town into an international community by Marjorie Rosen( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1950, Sam Walton, founder of the Wal-Mart empire, arrived in Bentonville, Arkansas, and discovered that the nondescript Ozarks backwater--population 2,900 white Christians--suited him just fine. Six decades later, Walton's legacy has left its mark. The area is headquarters to not only Wal-Mart but also Tyson Foods and J.B. Hunt. The town's population has grown to 30,000, and the region is now home to blacks, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Marshall Islanders, and the fastest-growing Latino population in the country. This book explores the ever-shifting social, political, and cultural character of the United States through the microcosm that is Northwest Arkansas and the personal stories of its people. She talks with a Palestinian immigrant who rose from penniless dishwasher to multimillionaire contractor--and dedicated himself to building a local Jewish community's first synagogue. A black executive hired to diversify Wal-Mart, whose arrival coincided with a KKK rally in the town square, gives his views on the controversies surrounding the company. A Mexican mother of three, fired from a chicken plant after an injury on the job, discusses her struggle to survive. A Hindu father concerned about interracial dating, a Marshallese security guard whose daughter was ignored in the ER, and others reveal the issues and challenges facing those who make up the?boom towns? where the economy and culture are in constant flux
Popcorn Venus; women, movies & the American dream by Marjorie Rosen( Book )

36 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the film industry is in many ways a reflection of the thwarted emergence in society of feminism and full equal civil rights for women. Commercial films have traditionally relied upon the charm and sexual allure of actresses to assure economic success at the box office. Victorian mores heavily influenced the way women were treated in early films, and from the 1920s to the present the cinema has capitalized upon the public's wish to safely rebel from those values by presenting films which stress women's sexuality. In the 1920s the image of the flapper and the vamp dominated the screens. In the 1930s the brashly "wisecracking" blond woman typified by Jean Harlow, emerged. With the coming of war, cinema's women became factory workers. The "strong woman" became the image of that day. The presentation of an idealized, exaggerated sexuality in women, typified by Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot, became popular in the 1950s and 1960s. The more current trend in film's treatment of women concentrates upon the quasi-liberated female typified by Jane Fonda and Glenda Jackson. Each period, however, is marked by a varied but superficial and sometimes demeaning depiction of women. (Ch)
Mia & Woody : love and betrayal by Kristi Groteke( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What went wrong? Mia & Woody is the first true insider's account of how their unusual love/work partnership, a coupling that lasted a dozen years and involved thirteen notable movies, imploded. It is also the story of a remarkable family threatened from within, fighting to hold their life together. How this disparate group of children and their mother worked and lived, laughed and cried, is candidly revealed. So too is the drama of a trusting woman betrayed by her lover and her daughter. Written from first-hand knowledge and with sympathetic understanding, Mia & Woody is the moving tale of a love gone terribly wrong. Kristi Groteke shares with the reader Mia's fight to retain her dignity in the glare of public humiliation; her struggle to protect her children; and her courage in the face of events that assaulted everything she believed in
