Women's Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by Patricia Zavella

At the time Women’s Work and Chicano Families: Cannery Workers of the Santa Clara Valley was published, little research had been done on the relationship between the wage labor and household labor of Mexican American women. Drawing on revisionist social theories relating to Chicano family structure as well as on feminist theory, Patricia Zavella paints a compelling picture of the Chicano women who worked in northern California’s fruit and vegetable canneries. Her book combines social history, shop floor ethnography, and in-depth interviews to explore the links between Chicano family life and gender inequality in the labor market....

"...To Knock Jos. Johnston": Sherman, Atlanta, and the Sinews of War (Civil War Logistics Book 1)

"Amateurs talk about tactics, but professionals study logistics."While Sam Grant was in a death stuggle with Bobby Lee in Virginia in 1864, so was Uncle Billy Sherman locking horns with Joe Johnston in the pine thickets of North Georgia.Maybe you know something about Grant and Lee and their Overland Campaign, otherwise known as "the 40-days." The mention of the battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor might ring a bell. Would the same be true hearing about the battles of Resaca? Kennesaw Mountain? Peachtree Creek? These were all part of the Atlanta Campaign. Odds are you are not nearly as familiar with the Atlanta Campaign as the more famous battles that occurred in the Eastern Theater. Of course there are several excellent books on the Atlanta Campaign. Yes there are, but...

The Baileys of Bailey Hill: Early Lane County (OR) Families With Lorane Connections (Early Lane County Oregon Families with Lorane Connections Book 1)

In researching the Bailey family of the Bailey Hill area of Eugene, Oregon, I became enamored with the strength of character and thread of family bonding that ran through their midst. When I began my project, it was with the intention of profiling 4-6 families in one book, but once I got into my detailed research, I knew that there was much more to the family than I expected. The history of the Bailey family of Bailey Hill has proven to be rich and interesting. Arriving in the late 1840s and through the 1850s, they were early pioneers to Benton and Lane Counties in Oregon and, although their major connection was not with the Lorane area, they had a strong presence in the Siuslaw Valley and other parts of Lane County, Oregon as well.Bailey Hill, the area where several family members settled...

The Baron of Beacon Hill: A biography of John Hancock

by William M Fowler

John Hancock belongs to that nearly mythical assemblage, the Founding Fathers, and his bold signature across the Declaration of Independence has placed him among the most famous of that legendary group. Indeed, the very renown of his signature has tended to obscure his position as one of the most extraordinary politicians in American history.Hancock was born in Braintree, Massachusetts, in 1737. When his father died in 1744 after a short illness, seven-year-old John was sent to live with his childless Uncle Thomas, a prosperous merchant in Boston. John attended Boston Latin School and later Harvard, where he was an indifferent student, and then joined his uncle as an apprentice in the world of commerce. At the age of twenty-seven, when his uncle passed away, he became one of the richest me...

All the Presidents' Memories: How they Reconstruct the Past, Manage the Present and Shape the Future; Volume I

by Henry Roth

The memories described in this book reflect not only how eleven American Presidents remembered what happened to them in their youth, but also a kind of psychological shorthand of their beliefs, attitudes, cognitive biases and foibles. A negative memory may have provided guidance in situations the President viewed as dangerous, whereas a positive memory may have provided guidance in situations viewed as promising. By examining the early memories of the Presidents, it is possible to discover how, for example: Abraham Lincoln's amusing memory of a boyhood caper provided an unusual perspective on his character and his lasting appeal as a great storyteller;Ulysses S. Grant’s memory of a business transaction revealed a hidden vulnerability; Teddy Roosevelt's memory of a fantastic childhood adv...

The Mystery of the Anasazi Civilization: Surprising Evidence of Spiritual and Astronomical Knowledge of the Mysterious Anasazi’s Civilization of the Remote American Canyons

by Osmanagich Ph.D., Sam

The surface of the Earth over the last two million years provides evidence of the occurrence of eighteen ice ages each lasting about a hundred thousand years. Between them there were short periods of warming, which lasted no more than twelve thousand years. Those were the times when new life cycles would begin. Life blossomed, the planet turned green, and the sounds of various living beings could be heard most everywhere. We are now at the end of one such temporary warm period which began 11,500 years ago. We are rapidly approaching another ice age. Climate changes will intensify, cold regions will become even colder, warm regions even warmer. Another cycle will come to an end. The dominant civilization will come to an end and it will take many generations before another cycle starts over ...
