An East Texas Family's Civil War - The Letters of Nancy and William Whatley, May-December 1862 (Hardcover, Annotated... An East Texas Family's Civil War - The Letters of Nancy and William Whatley, May-December 1862 (Hardcover, Annotated edition)
John T Whatley, Jacqueline Jones
R830 Discovery Miles 8 300 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

During six months in 1862, William Jefferson Whatley and his wife, Nancy Falkaday Watkins Whatley, exchanged a series of letters that vividly demonstrate the quickly changing roles of women whose husbands left home to fight in the Civil War. When William Whatley enlisted with the Confederate Army in 1862, he left his young wife Nancy in charge of their cotton farm in East Texas, near the village of Caledonia in Rusk County. In letters to her husband, Nancy describes in elaborate detail how she dealt with and felt about her new role, which thrust her into an array of unfamiliar duties, including dealing with increasingly unruly slaves, overseeing the harvest of the cotton crop, and negotiating business transactions with unscrupulous neighbors. At the same time, she carried on her traditional family duties and tended to their four young children during frequent epidemics of measles and diphtheria. Stationed hundreds of miles away, her husband could only offer her advice, sympathy, and shared frustration. In An East Texas Family's Civil War, the Whatleys' great-grandson, John T. Whatley, transcribes and annotates these letters for the first time. Notable for their descriptions of the unraveling of the local slave labor system and accounts of rural southern life, Nancy's letters offer a rare window on the hardships faced by women on the home front taking on unprecedented responsibilities and filling unfamiliar roles.

Jacqueline Jones Royster
R826 Discovery Miles 8 260 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"Traces of a Stream" offers a unique scholarly perspective that merges interests in rhetorical and literacy studies, United States social and political theory, and African American women writers. Focusing on elite nineteenth-century African American women who formed a new class of women well positioned to use language with consequence, Royster uses interdisciplinary perspectives (literature, history, feminist studies, African American studies, psychology, art, sociology, economics) to present a well-textured rhetorical analysis of the literate practices of these women. With a shift in educational opportunity after the Civil War, African American women gained access to higher education and received formal training in rhetoric and writing. By the end of the nineteenth-century, significant numbers of African American women operated actively in many public arenas.

In her study, Royster acknowledges the persistence of disempowering forces in the lives of African American women and their equal perseverance against these forces. Amid these conditions, Royster views the acquisition of literacy as a dynamic moment for African American women, not only in terms of their use of written language to satisfy their general needs for agency and authority, but also to fulfill socio-political purposes as well.

"Traces of a Stream "is a showcase for nineteenth-century African American women, and particularly elite women, as a group of writers who are currently underrepresented in rhetorical scholarship. Royster has formulated both an analytical theory and an ideological perspectivethat are useful in gaining a more generative understanding of literate practices as a whole and the practices of African American women in particular. Royster tells a tale of rhetorical prowess, calling for alternative ways of seeing, reading, and rendering scholarship as she seeks to establish a more suitable place for the contributions and achievements of African American women writers.

"A brilliant indictment. . . . As history that informs the present, this book carries great moral force."—William S. McFeely, author of Frederick Douglass

This is history at its best — the epic, often tragic story of success and failure on the uneven playing fields of American labor, rooted in painstaking research and passionately alive to its present-day implications for a just society. Jacqueline Jones shows unmistakably how nearly every significant social transformation in American history (from bound to free labor, from farm work to factory work, from a blue-collar to a white-collar economy) rolled back the hard-won advances of those African Americans who had managed to gain footholds in various jobs and industries. This is a story not of simple ideological "racism" but of politics and economics interacting to determine what kind of work was "suitable" for which groups.

Here is a "useful and sobering" (Kirkus Reviews) account of why the connection between success and the work ethic was severed long ago for a substantial number of Americans. American Work goes far beyond the easy sloganeering of the current debates on affirmative action and welfare versus workfare to inform those debates with rich historical context and compelling insight.

"American Work performs the inestimable service that all history should: It allows us to imaginatively reconstruct the vanished worlds that have conspired in the creation of our own."-Chris Lehmann, Newsday

"Readers of this well-written book will appreciate the way Jones is able to integrate race-based matters with broader issues of social inequality, state public policies, and national political economy."—William Julius Wilson, author of When Work Disappears

Their love is perfect and beautiful, she is his muse and he her great love. Sadly the landlord doesn't accept the fruits of love as payment and Armand is skint. This predicament forces Venus to go out and work. Initially taking work as a model, the comely Venus is very soon offered money to (chastely) spend time with an elderly gentleman. Upon hearing this Armand flies into a rage, accusing Venus of betrayal. Abandoned and broken-hearted, Venus is easy prey for the sinister Madame Lili (Mandy Rice-Davies) who first seduces her and then turns her into a prostitute. The enraged and lovelorn Armand, passionate as only an artist can be, plots his ominous solution.

From a prize-winning historian, a new portrait of an extraordinary activist and the turbulent age in which she lived Goddess of Anarchy recounts the formidable life of the militant writer, orator, and agitator Lucy Parsons. Born to an enslaved woman in Virginia in 1851 and raised in Texas-where she met her husband, the Haymarket "martyr" Albert Parsons-Lucy was a fearless advocate of First Amendment rights, a champion of the working classes, and one of the most prominent figures of African descent of her era. And yet, her life was riddled with contradictions-she advocated violence without apology, concocted a Hispanic-Indian identity for herself, and ignored the plight of African Americans. Drawing on a wealth of new sources, Jacqueline Jones presents not only the exceptional life of the famous American-born anarchist but also an authoritative account of her times-from slavery through the Great Depression.

"Soldiers of Light and Love" is an acclaimed study of the reform-minded northerners who taught freed slaves in the war-torn Reconstruction South. Jacqueline Jones's book, first published in 1980, focuses on the nearly three hundred women who served in Georgia in the chaotic decade following the Civil War. Commissioned by the American Missionary Association and other freedmen's aid societies, these middle-class New Englanders saw themselves as the postbellum, evangelical heirs of the abolitionist cause.

Specific in compass, but wide-ranging in significance, "Soldiers of Light and Love" illuminates the complexity of class, race, and gender issues in early Victorian America.

The forces that shaped the institution of slavery in the American South endured, albeit in altered form, long after slavery was abolished. Toiling in sweltering Virginia tobacco factories or in the kitchens of white families in Chicago, black women felt a stultifying combination of racial discrimination and sexual prejudice. And yet, in their efforts to sustain family ties, they shared a common purpose with wives and mothers of all classes.

In "Labor of Love, Labor of Sorrow," historian Jacqueline Jones offers a powerful account of the changing role of black women, lending a voice to an unsung struggle from the depths of slavery to the ongoing fight for civil rights.

This is both the story of a little girl growing up in Christiana, Delaware, in the 1950s and the history of an American crossroads. Wedged between two dramatically different extended families, she tries to make sense of the social signifiers that crosscut even this tiny village in New Castle County_differences between blacks and whites, men and women, Presbyterians and Methodists, migrants from Appalachia and migrants from New England, and members of the business class and the working class. In the process she chronicles a series of economic and social changes that span the last four hundred years_the transformation of Native-American hunting grounds into a colonial port on the busy Christina River; the decline of that port when it was bypassed by canals and railroads; and finally, the emergence of a thriving service and consumer economy in early twenty-first-century northern Delaware.

R822 Discovery Miles 8 220 Out of stock

Focus: Music and Devotion in India creates a foundational framework for exploring musical expression in India, balancing coverage of a diverse range of traditions with in-depth analyses of specific genres and practices. It is based on the author's approach to teaching Indian music that begins with the fundamental connections between sound and religious experience in South Asia. The reader is first introduced to the culture, religions, and musics of India, before examining the music and devotion in India through the lens of specific religious identities. The final section examines the Varkaris of Maharashtra, a Hindu Bhatri sect that features ensemble singing and drumming. An accompanying website hosts field recordings. The author highlights both distinctive and overlapping features of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, and Jewish traditions as they manifest through music, and draws attention to larger issues at stake in India, including colonialism, nationalism, mass-mediation, "world music" markets, and musical syncretism. Her focus on the a Hindu bhakti (devotional) sect is based on two years of fieldwork in the city of Pune, and allows the reader to encounter devotional music at close range and in diverse settings. Building upon the ideas explored earlier in the book, clear examples of the profound connections between concepts, contexts, and sounds in South Asian musical life are revealed.
