Making Malcolm: The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X by Michael Eric Dyson English | January 25th, 1996 | ISBN: 0195102851, 019509235X | 246 pages | PDF | 9.24 MB
Malcolm X's cultural rebirth–his improbable second coming–brims with irony. The nineties are marked by intense and often angry debates about racial authenticity and "selling out," and the participants in these debates–from politicians to filmmakers to rap artists–often draw on Malcolm's scorching rebukes to such moves. Meanwhile, Malcolm's "X" is marketed in countless business endeavors and is stylishly branded on baseball hats and T-shirts sported by every age, race, and gender.
The View from Somewhere: Undoing the Myth of Journalistic Objectivity by Lewis Raven Wallace English | October 31st, 2019 | ISBN: 022658917X | 245 pages | EPUB | 0.41 MB
#MeToo. #BlackLivesMatter. #NeverAgain. #WontBeErased. Though both the right- and left-wing media claim "objectivity" in their reporting of these and other contentious issues, the American public has become increasingly cynical about truth, fact, and reality. In The View from Somewhere, Lewis Raven Wallace dives deep into the history of "objectivity" in journalism and how its been used to gatekeep and silence marginalized writers as far back as Ida B. Wells.
The Expatriate Myth: New Zealand Writers and the Colonial World by Helen Bones English | October 31st, 2019 | ISBN: 1988531179 | 242 pages | EPUB | 1.12 MB
Many New Zealand writers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century traveled extensively or lived overseas for a time. In The Expatriate Myth, Helen Bones presents a challenge to this conventional understanding that writers had to leave in order to find literary inspiration and publishing opportunities. Was it actually necessary for them to leave to find success? How prevalent was expatriatism among New Zealand writers? Did their experiences fit the usual tropes about expatriatism and exile? Were they fleeing an oppressive society lacking in literary opportunity?
Saving Grand Canyon: Dams, Deals, and a Noble Myth by Byron E Pearson English | September 25th, 2019 | ISBN: 1948908212 | 368 pages | EPUB | 10.25 MB
The Grand Canyon has been saved from dams three times in the last century. Unthinkable as it may seem today, many people promoted damming the Colorado River in the canyon during the early twentieth century as the most feasible solution to the water and power needs of the Pacific Southwest. These efforts reached their climax during the 1960s when the federal government tried to build two massive hydroelectric dams in the Grand Canyon. Although not located within the Grand Canyon National Park or Monument, they would have flooded lengthy, unprotected reaches of the canyon and along thirteen miles of the park boundary.
