American Honor - The Creation of the Nation's Ideals during the Revolutionary Era (Hardcover): Craig Bruce Smith American Honor - The Creation of the Nation's Ideals during the Revolutionary Era (Hardcover)
Craig Bruce Smith
R915 Discovery Miles 9 150 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The American Revolution was not only a revolution for liberty and freedom. It was also a revolution of ethics, reshaping what colonial Americans understood as ""honor"" and ""virtue."" As Craig Bruce Smith demonstrates, these concepts were crucial aspects of Revolutionary Americans' ideological break from Europe and shared by all ranks of society. Focusing his study primarily on prominent Americans who came of age before and during the Revolution-notably John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington-Smith shows how a colonial ethical transformation caused and became inseparable from the American Revolution, creating an ethical ideology that still remains. By also interweaving individuals and groups that have historically been excluded from the discussion of honor-such as female thinkers, women patriots, slaves, and free African Americans-Smith makes a broad and significant argument about how the Revolutionary era witnessed a fundamental shift in ethical ideas. This thoughtful work sheds new light on a forgotten cause of the Revolution and on the ideological foundation of the United States.

Games and elections are fundamental activities in society with applications in economics, political science, and sociology. These topics offer familiar, current, and lively subjects for a course in mathematics. This classroom-tested textbook, primarily intended for a general education course in game theory at the freshman or sophomore level, provides an elementary treatment of games and elections. Starting with basics such as gambling, zero-sum and combinatorial games, Nash equilibria, social dilemmas, and fairness and impossibility theorems for elections, the text then goes further into the theory with accessible proofs of advanced topics such as the Sprague-Grundy theorem and Arrow's impossibility theorem. * Uses an integrative approach to probability, game, and social choice theory * Provides a gentle introduction to the logic of mathematical proof, thus equipping readers with the necessary tools for further mathematical studies * Contains numerous exercises and examples of varying levels of difficulty * Requires only a high school mathematical background.

"There are two schools: one that sings the sheen and hues, the necessary pigments and frankincense while the world dries and the other voice like water that seeks to saturate, erode, and boil . . . It ruins everything you have ever saved." Spill is a book in contradictions, embodying helplessness in the face of our dual citizenship in the realms of trauma and gratitude, artistic aspiration and political reality. The centerpiece of this collection is a lyrical essay that recalls the poet's time working at the Federal Penitentiary at Lewisburg in the 1960s. Mentored by the insouciant inmate S, the speaker receives a schooling in race, class, and culture, as well as the beginning of an apprenticeship in poetry. As he and S consult the I Ching, the Book of Changes, the speaker becomes cognizant of other frequencies, other identities; poetry, divination, and a synchronous, alternative reading of life come into focus. On either side of this prose poem are related poems of excess and witness, of the ransacked places and of new territories that emerge from the monstrous. Throughout, these poems inhabit rather than resolve their contradictions, their utterances held in tension "between the hemispheres of songbirds and the hemispheres of men."

Devotions (Paperback): Bruce Smith Devotions (Paperback)
Bruce Smith
R459 Discovery Miles 4 590 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

'Devotion: Guitar': From Tuscaloosa west to Mississippi then north to Memphis through country as unmusical as I was unloved by the decorous ardor of the South and the voice of one whose griefs were Cherokee, absentee, left in the Chevy and secret. She didn't love my love like Shiva's everywhere and blue and many-handed, some with knives and some with billet-doux. She wouldn't sacrifice the better judgment I'd want of her. Like stopped clocks (black hands, white faces) the geographic cure was true two times a day. All time else I was wrong and blued like the notes of the guitar, drum, saxophoned songs I was receiving: a magnet wound around a steel coil - a Les Paul - the quavers I converted to an electric boil that simmered into the sweet, fry-oil air. I can be mortified anywhere, everywhere. In the hands of Bruce Smith, devotions are momentary stops to listen to the motor of history. They are meditations and provocations. They are messages received from the chatter of the street and from transmissions as distant as Memphis and al-Mansur. Bulletins and interruptions come from brutal elsewheres and from the interior where music puts electrodes on the body to take an EKG. These poems visit high schools, laundromats, motels, films, and dreams in order to measure the American hunger and thirst. They are interested in the things we profess to hold most dear as well as what's unspoken and unbidden. While we're driving, while riding a bus, while receiving a call, while passing through an X-ray machine, the personal intersects - sometimes violently, sometimes tenderly - with the hum and buzz of the culture. The culture, whether New York or Tuscaloosa, Seattle or Philadelphia, past or present, carries the burden of race and 'someone's idea of beauty.' The poems fluctuate between the two poles of 'lullaby and homicide' before taking a vow to remain on earth, to look right and left, to wait and to witness.

In the near future, former Mormon missionary and ex-con Peter Novak is approached out of the blue by his uncle Jethro Black, who comes bearing news: the Apocalypse is here. And when a demon takes away everything Peter holds dear, he joins his uncle and his underground militia to hunt down the monster that ruined his life. But as the search continues, one mystery after another comes to light, and soon Peter finds himself caught in the middle of a war that has been raging since before the world was. Hell is on the rise, nowhere is safe, and the Devil has begun to bring to fruition an ancient plot to siege the earth, bring down heaven and dethrone God himself.

Rob Smith's poetry has been described as "accessible" and "poignant." The relationship between people and their natural surroundings permeates his work, as does his curiosity for the uniquely human aspiration of finding meaning through love, work, and imagination. His poetry has received national recognition. In 2006, he received the Robert Frost Poetry Award from the Frost Foundation of Lawrence, MA for the best poem written "in the spirit of Robert Frost." More recently, in 2011, five of his poems were adapted as lyrics in a series of art songs composed by R. Michael Daugherty. The poems of the song cycle, "Love's Shades of Gray," are included as a section in this volume. The Immigrant's House is his most complete anthology to date. It includes all of his previously published poems and many which are shared for the first time. Each poem tells a life story and explores the mystery and wonder of what it means to be human.

Shrader Marks - Keelhouse (Paperback): Robert Bruce Smith Shrader Marks - Keelhouse (Paperback)

-Beneath the guise of imaginative fiction, Shrader Marks: Keelhouse explores the interrelationships of technology and culture, authority and rule, storytelling and survival. Shrader Marks: Keelhouse contains the complete two-volume saga which began with Rob Smith's debut novel, Night Voices. After its release in 2006, readers who had followed Cathy Pearson, Shrader Marks, and the flotilla of Great Lakes refugees wanted more. Here is the continuation of that story, an adventure which follows the exiles in their new life along the North Atlantic coast. Keelhouse picks up the narrative five years later as a broken world begins to reshape itself. In the emerging reality of a world stripped of much of its technology, the voices which haunted Shrader on the first voyage seem benign compared with rivaling human incursions. This double volume contains both an updated Night Voices and the much anticipated first release of Keelhouse. Readers will not miss any part of the compelling action.
