The Howling Storm - Weather, Climate, and the American Civil War (Hardcover): Kenneth W. Noe The Howling Storm - Weather, Climate, and the American Civil War (Hardcover)

Traditional histories of the Civil War describe the conflict as a war between North and South. Kenneth W. Noe suggests it should instead be understood as a war between the North, the South, and the weather. In The Howling Storm, Noe retells the history of the conflagration with a focus on the ways in which weather and climate shaped the outcomes of battles and campaigns. He further contends that events such as floods and droughts affecting the Confederate home front constricted soldiers' food supply, lowered morale, and undercut the government's efforts to boost nationalist sentiment. By contrast, the superior equipment and open supply lines enjoyed by Union soldiers enabled them to cope successfully with the South's extreme conditions and, ultimately, secure victory in 1865. Climate conditions during the war proved unusual, as irregular phenomena such as El Nino, La Nina, and similar oscillations in the Atlantic Ocean disrupted weather patterns across southern states. Taking into account these meteorological events, Noerethinks conventional explanations of battlefield victories and losses, compelling historians to reconsider long-held conclusions about the war. Unlike past studies that fault inflation, taxation, and logistical problems for the Confederate defeat, his work considers how soldiers and civilians dealt with floods and droughts that beset areas of the South in 1862, 1863, and 1864. In doing so, he addresses the foundational causes that forced Richmond to make difficult and sometimes disastrous decisions when prioritizing the feeding of the home front or the front lines. The Howling Storm stands as the first comprehensive examination of weather and climate during the Civil War. Its approach, coverage, and conclusions are certain to reshape the field of Civil War studies.

The Korean Vernacular Story - Telling Tales of Contemporary Choson in Sinographic Writing (Hardcover): Si Nae Park The Korean Vernacular Story - Telling Tales of Contemporary Choson in Sinographic Writing (Hardcover)

As the political, economic, and cultural center of Choson Korea, eighteenth-century Seoul epitomized a society in flux: It was a bustling, worldly metropolis into which things and people from all over the country flowed. In this book, Si Nae Park examines how the culture of Choson Seoul gave rise to a new vernacular narrative form that was evocative of the spoken and written Korean language of the time. The vernacular story (yadam) flourished in the nineteenth century as anonymously and unofficially circulating tales by and for Choson people. The Korean Vernacular Story focuses on the formative role that the collection Repeatedly Recited Stories of the East (Tongp'ae naksong) played in shaping yadam, analyzing the collection's language and composition and tracing its reception and circulation. Park situates its compiler, No Myonghum, in Seoul's cultural scene, examining how he developed a sense of belonging in the course of transforming from a poor provincial scholar to an urbane literary figure. No wrote his tales to serve as stories of contemporary Choson society and chose to write not in cosmopolitan Literary Sinitic but instead in a new medium in which Literary Sinitic is hybridized with the vernacular realities of Choson society. Park contends that this linguistic innovation to represent tales of contemporary Choson inspired readers not only to circulate No's works but also to emulate and cannibalize his stylistic experimentation within Choson's manuscript-heavy culture of texts. The first book in English on the origins of yadam, The Korean Vernacular Story combines historical insight, textual studies, and the history of the book. By highlighting the role of negotiation with Literary Sinitic and sinographic writing, it challenges the script (han'gul)-focused understanding of Korean language and literature.

Barry Mullins isn't the sharpest tool in the box. But he has a particular talent - he knows how to fight. A successful career in the ring seems assured but those around him try to take advantage, and when greed, jealousy and ambition conspire, Barry gets backed into a corner. Can he battle his way out? Or will he get dragged down? Fame and celebrity are king, but there can only be one winner, and for those who succeed there are thousands of others with unrecognised talent who fall by the wayside. Boxed In helps us understand their story and gives us clues as to why the promise of youth so often fades. 'In Barry, author N.E.David has created a hero for the age of uncertainty. A book that shines fresh light on our times.' Peter Bartram, author of the Colin Crampton series

The outcomes of campaigns in the Civil War often depended on top generals having the right corps commanders in the right place at the right time. Mutual trust and respect between generals and their corps commanders, though vital to military success, was all too rare: Corps commanders were often forced to exercise considerable discretion in the execution of orders from their generals, and bitter public arguments over commanders' performances in battle followed hard on the heels of many major engagements. Controversies that arose during the war around the decisions of corps and army commanders-such as Daniel Sickles's disregard of George Meade's orders at the Battle of Gettysburg-continue to provoke vigorous debate among students of the Civil War. Corps Commanders in Blue offers eight case studies that illuminate the critical roles the Union corps commanders played in shaping the war's course and outcome. The contributors examine, and in many cases challenge, widespread assumptions about these men while considering the array of internal and external forces that shaped their efforts on and off the battlefield. Providing insight into the military conduct of the Civil War, Corps Commanders in Blue fills a significant gap in the historiography of the war by offering compelling examinations of the challenges of corps command in particular campaigns, the men who exercised that command, and the array of factors that shaped their efforts, for good or for ill.

Hardship, Greed, and Sorrow - An Officer's Photo Album of 1866 New Mexico Territory (Paperback): Devorah Romanek Hardship, Greed, and Sorrow - An Officer's Photo Album of 1866 New Mexico Territory (Paperback)
Devorah Romanek; Preface by Daniel Kosharek; Foreword by Jennifer Nez Denetdale
R684 Discovery Miles 6 840 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In the aftermath of the Civil War, New Mexico Territory endured painful years of hardship and ongoing strife. During this turbulent period, a U.S. military officer stationed in the territory assembled an album of photographs, a series of still shots taken by one or more anonymous photographers. Now, some 150 years later, Hardship, Greed, and Sorrow reproduces the anonymous officer's ""souvenir album"" in its totality. Offering an important glimpse of the American Southwest in the mid-1860s, the book opens with a thoughtful foreword by Jennifer Nez Denetdale, who considers the varied and lingering effects that settlement, conquest, and nineteenth-century photography had on the Apaches and Navajos. In her insightful introduction accompanying the photographs, curator and scholar Devorah Romanek places the photographs in historical context and explains their unusual provenance. As she points out, the 1866 album integrates a number of important themes in connection to the Civil War and Reconstruction periods, including the French intervention in New Mexico and the internment of Navajos at the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation. The story of the album's provenance reads like a mystery: some loose ends remain untied and some questions remain unanswered. In addition to containing what may be the earliest extant photographs of Navajo Indians, the album features both studio and field images of U.S. Army officers, Mexican politicians, and various sites throughout New Mexico. According to Romanek, a number of the album's photographs have appeared in other publications but with scant attention to their original context or purpose. This compelling book reveals what we know about the collection, its compiler, and the photographer - or photographers - who captured such a fraught and complex moment in the history of the American Southwest.

R371 Discovery Miles 3 710 Out of stock

"An original and authentic voice . . . with an original vision. A blend of indigenismo and folktales retold in a modern vein. . . . These stories at times seem to come from the clouds, from spirits of ancient ancestors, or from the oblique corners of the human consciousness. . . . A new and engaging "duende" is being born in these pages."--Alejandro Murguia, author of "This War Called Love"

"If Chagall had written, he would have painted words in the fierce brushstrokes of ire'ne lara silva's stories. If Remedios Varo had told stories, she would have wound the tendrils of her magic the way ire'ne lara silva paints her world."--Cecile Pineda, author of "The Love Queen of the Amazon"

Rooted in a Chicana/Latina/indigenous geographic and cultural sensibility, the stories in "flesh to bone" are concerned with borders of all kinds and the potential for transformation and healing. The nine stories write and rewrite "myth" from a woman's of view, as they tell stories of women and children whose lives are shaped by the social, political, ecological, and economic disruption and violence of the borderlands.

A poet and fiction writer, ire'ne lara silva has been an active participant in the literary culture of Austin, Texas, for many years. Her first collection of poetry, "furia," was published by Mouthfeel Press in 2010. She is the recipient of the Gloria Anzaldua Milagro Award and a 2010 Cantomundo Inaugural Fellowship.
