The senator and the sharecropper : the freedom struggles of James O. Eastland and Fannie Lou Hamer by Chris Myers Asch( )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sunflower County, Mississippi, is a land of deep contradictions. It boasts some of the world's richest soil, yet has produced widespread poverty that lingers to this day. It stood at the epicenter of the civil rights movement, yet still suffers from racial inequality. It has been on the forefront of globalization, yet continues to stagnate economically." "The Senator and the Sharecropper explores these paradoxes, telling the story of two larger-than-life personalities who epitomized the county's extremes: the senator, James O. Eastland, a wealthy white cotton planter who was one of the most powerful segregationists in the U.S. Senate, and the sharecropper, Fannie Lou Hamer, who grew up desperately poor just a few miles from the Eastland plantation and rose to become the spiritual leader of the Mississippi freedom struggle."--Jacket
Chocolate City : a history of race and democracy in the nation's capital by Chris Myers Asch( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Monumental in scope and vividly detailed, Chocolate City tells the tumultuous, four-century story of race and democracy in our nation's capital. Emblematic of the ongoing tensions between America's expansive democratic promises and its enduring racial realities, Washington often has served as a national battleground for contentious issues, including slavery, segregation, civil rights, the drug war, and gentrification. But D.C. is more than just a seat of government, and authors Chris Myers Asch and George Derek Musgrove also highlight the city's rich history of local activism as Washingtonians of all races have struggled to make their voices heard in an undemocratic city where residents lack full political rights. Tracing D.C.'s massive transformations--from a sparsely inhabited plantation society into a diverse metropolis, from a center of the slave trade to the nation's first black-majority city, from "Chocolate City" to "Latte City"--Asch and Musgrove offer an engaging narrative peppered with unforgettable characters, a history of deep racial division but also one of hope, resilience, and interracial cooperation."--Publisher's description
The dictionary of the environment and its biomes( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The environment is all around you -- it is the air you breathe, the mountains you climb, the lakes you swim in, the wind that blows across your face. Within the environment, there are different geographical regions that share similar characteristics, such as climate and types of plants and animals. Those regions are called biomes. Each biome is unique and each is home to marvelous creatures and plants. The Dictionary of the Environment and Its Biomes introduces the twelve major biomes of the world. Readers will find information on each biome's climate, precipitation, seasons, and dominant plant and animal life, as well as an illustration that indicates each biome's geographic locations. In more than 200 entries, this book explores not only the major biomes but also related topics and terms such as environmental issues, habitats, climates, and species. Accompanying the entries are special features including Keywords, Where Are They Found?, Key Species, Biome Snapshots, and Case Studies. These features highlight the various species and environmental conditions that exist in the different regions. In addition, there is a bibliography of books and web sites, a list of environmental organizations and agencies, and an index for further research

Solomon Grundy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Solomon Grundy is a nursery rhyme from the late 1700's that was first published in 1845 in 'Nursery Rhymes of England.'? The titular character is confronted by the swirling chaos and fleeting nature of life, marked by a series of basic milestone rituals and ceremonies and ending as abruptly as it begins. The aesthetic is based on Victorian theatre and clockwork stage plays, which serve to reinforce the life as stage metaphor"--Http://2007.firstlookfest.com/php/blackout.php?action=detail & id=6303 (as viewed on6/22/09)
