Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "... compelling... One draws from Haggerty's very deft readings a strong understanding of the ways in which women writers worked to resist, with greater and lesser success, the increasing demand that gender relations be normalized by imagining ever more possibilities for deviance." -- Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature George Haggerty examines the "unnatural" affections that abound in 18th-century novels. Their portrayal offered a complex understanding of the role of gender and the articulation of female desire during the age in which women novel writers came into their own. The novelists offered romantic friends, effeminized male partners, maimed heroines, paternal obsession, and lesbian couples -- relations that defied cultural taboos of the time

Book excerpt: Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize A Slate Best Book of 2011 A Discover Magazine Best Book of 2011 Lianyungang, a booming port city, has China's most extreme gender ratio for children under four: 163 boys for every 100 girls. These numbers don't seem terribly grim, but in ten years, the skewed sex ratio will pose a colossal challenge. By the time those children reach adulthood, their generation will have twenty-four million more men than women. The prognosis for China's neighbors is no less bleak: Asia now has 163 million females "missing" from its population. Gender imbalance reaches far beyond Asia, affecting Georgia, Eastern Europe, and cities in the U.S. where there are significant immigrant populations. The world, therefore, is becoming increasingly male, and this mismatch is likely to create profound social upheaval. Historically, eras in which there have been an excess of men have produced periods of violent conflict and instability. Mara Hvistendahl has written a stunning, impeccably-researched book that does not flinch from examining not only the consequences of the misbegotten policies of sex selection but Western complicity with them.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Unnatural Resources explores the intersection of energy production and environmental regulation in Appalachia after the oil embargo of 1973. The years from 1969 to 1973 saw the passage of a number of laws meant to protect the environment from human destruction, and they initially enjoyed broad public popularity. However, the oil embargo, which caused lines and fistfights at gasoline stations, refocused Americans’ attention on economic issues and alerted Americans to the dangers of relying on imported oil. As a drive to increase domestic production of energy gained momentum, it soon appeared that new environmental regulations were inhibiting this initiative. A backlash against environmental regulations helped inaugurate a bipartisan era of market-based thinking in American politics and discredited the idea that the federal government had a constructive role to play in addressing energy issues. This study connects political, labor, and environmental history to contribute to a growing body of literature on the decline of the New Deal and the rise of pro-market thinking in American politics.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Sublime tale of Unnatural Events. The Internal world of Marjoram Maple is stretched beyond the boundaries of her imagination as she with her brother Jack are caught in a supernatural event brought about by a fiery visitation to their family home. This mythical adventure begins when Jack appears one morning with a strange ring of fire around his head. This fire seems to bring to life and release the energy of inanimate objects including a group of sunflowers that are the subject matter in one of their mother’s (Marigold Maple) paintings. This group of sunflowers leads the two teenagers on a spiritual journey. The main characters are the eccentric Maple family. They have four daughters who are named after botanicals, (Marjoram, Geranium, Rosewood and Lavender) and a son called Jack. Marigold the mother is a painter of flowers and Big Red the father is the local fire chief. It is set in a small mountain village called ‘Wonder’. The story is made up of a series of visual vignettes as they embark on a journey into a heavenly realm and there they meet a series of characters who serve as metaphors for supernatural beings. Intervention by these supernatural beings bring the whole family together in an adventure of mythical proportions where they discover that they have been charged with a mission: to return to their home town of ‘Wonder’ and rescue the dragonflies who are the warrior guardians of the town, and have been taken captive by a deadly ‘shadow’ that is intent on destruction. In their adventure they discover ‘Dandelion,’ a supreme being, who is the source of life on earth. The family is accompanied in their battle by a group of violets from Dandelion’s armed forces, and a host of spiritual beings known as ‘Thingamys.' This story is a celebration of creativity, diversity and moral fortitude against a backdrop of more serious issues that young people face in a sometimes unjust world.

Download or read book Unnatural Deaths written by Robert G. Fuller Jr and published by Dog Ear Publishing. This book was released on 2009-03 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Now retired, Robert G. Fuller, Jr, practiced law in Maine for over thirty-five years. He also served in the Judge Advocate General's Corps of the United States Navy. During his career, he developed extensive contacts among Maine trial lawyers, judges, law enforcement personnel, prosecutors and forensic analysts, all of which have contributed to the authentic flavor of this novel. Fuller's years in Maine have given him the ability to convey the way Maine people express themselves. He has a keen ear for the local vernacular of not only those who work in law enforcement but also the lawyers and ordinary citizens of Maine. Having practiced in Augusta, the state capital, he understands how Maine government, its bureaucrats, legislators and lobbyists operate. But Unnatural Deaths is more than a regional work. Danger and mystery, the unraveling of a complex factual skein, vivid characters and intriguing plot twists are common elements in any good crime novel. Fuller skillfully interweaves all these elements in lapidary prose with a Maine accent. Whether Fuller is discussing the bureaucracy of Federal law enforcement, the general way in which murder investigations are conducted in Maine, or providing a thumbnail sketch of life on Portland's Munjoy Hill, it is clear he has done his homework, and his writing, while fiction, rings true. With his skillful use of idiom he deftly sketches his characters so that they immediately materialize in the reader's imagination, and he enlivens his narrative with a wry sense of humor. - Fernand LaRochelle, Assistant Attorney General (Retired), Criminal Division, Maine Attorney General's Office Fuller's debut novel tells a story of murder and related plots by organized crime solved through diligent police work rather than flashes of insight. Yet, due to the author's considerable experience and probing mind, the narrative does not become tedious. He constructs his characters and their subcultures with such skill as to make each incident a story in itself. Particularly well described is the stark contrast between the gangsters' lack of moral sensibilities and the essentially decent ethos of rural Maine people. The novel's setting stimulates the reader to think deeply about how readily the innocent and friendly inhabitants of small-town Maine and their elected officials can be manipulated into unknowingly supporting the evil of seemingly wholesome, helpful outsiders. One is left with a disturbing sense of vulnerability and a warning to be cautious. - Henry F. Ryan, M. D., Chief Medical Examiner (retired), State of Maine.

Book excerpt: Unnatural. One word to sum up werewolf Kyle Larsen-his mood swings, abnormal body, and choice of female.The first two, he blames on the vampire venom. The third, though? No, feline shifter Brook Nicholls was all his doing-a female of whom the pack will never approve. As part of the Coalition, an organisation with even stricter rules than the pack and a rigidly warped sense of responsibility, Brook comes with a whole lot of opposition of her own. No wonder the two of them keep their relationship secret for as long as they can. Now, distanced from his family by his own indiscretions, Kyle's left to fight battles he's unsure how to win-some of them even against his own pack. Is one woman really so important that he's willing to defy his Alpha for her? If his heart has any say in the matter, the answer will be yes.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Arthur C. Danto's essays not only critique bodies of work but reflect upon art's conceptual evolution as well, drawing for the reader a kind of "philosophical map" indicating how art and the criteria for judging it has changed over the twentieth century. In Unnatural Wonders the renowned critic finds himself at a point when contemporary art has become wholly pluralistic, even chaotic-with one medium as good as another-and when the moment for the "next thing" has already passed. So the theorist goes in search of contemporary art's most exhilarating achievements, work that bridges the gap between art and life, which, he argues, is now the definitive art of our time. Danto considers the work of such young artists as John Currin and Renee Cox and older living masters including Gerhard Richter and Sol LeWitt. He discusses artists of the New York School, like Philip Guston and Joan Mitchell, and international talents, such as the South African William Kentridge. Danto conducts a frank analysis of Matthew Barney's The Cremaster Cycle, Damien Hirst's skeletons and anatomical models, and Barbara Kruger's tchotchke-ready slogans; finds the ghost of Henry James in the work of Barnett Newman; and muses on recent Whitney Biennials and art influenced by 9/11. He argues that aesthetic considerations no longer play a central role in the experience and critique of art. Instead art addresses us in our humanity, as men and women who seek meaning in the "unnatural wonders" of art, a meaning that philosophy and religion are unable to provide.

Book excerpt: As a freshman in college, Rachel Murr found herself trying to decide which campus social group to join: the gay and lesbian advocacy group or the campus Christian fellowship. She knew it couldn't be both. For the next fifteen years she held onto the belief that she couldn't be both gay and Christian. When the pain involved in trying not to be lesbian called for a change in theology, she came out to her evangelical church. Conflict ensued. Unnatural is a collection of stories--not only of the harm religiously-inspired negative messages about homosexuality inflict, but also of redemption. Rachel uses her own story as well as personal interviews with ten other queer women and one female-to-male transgender man to tell how they were judged, lectured, kicked out of homes and families, subjected to reparative therapies, and even assaulted. Some faced homelessness, depression, suicide attempts, and pervasive shame. Still, they fought to keep their faith alive. Each demonstrated an Unnatural ability to forgive, love, believe, advocate, and heal.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An Unnatural Attitude traces a style of musical thought that coalesced in the intellectual milieu of the Weimar Republic—a phenomenological style that sought to renew contact with music as a worldly circumstance. Deeply critical of the influence of naturalism in aesthetics and ethics, proponents of this new style argued for the description of music as something accessible neither through introspection nor through experimental research, but rather in an attitude of outward, open orientation toward the world. With this approach, music acquires meaning in particular when the act of listening is understood to be shared with others. Benjamin Steege interprets this discourse as the response of a young, post–World War I generation amid a virtually uninterrupted experience of war, actual or imminent—a cohort for whom disenchantment with scientific achievement was to be answered by reasserting the value of imaginative thought. Steege draws on a wide range of published and unpublished texts from music theory, pedagogy, criticism, and philosophy of music, some of which appear for the first time in English translation in the book’s appendixes. An Unnatural Attitude considers the question: What are we thinking about when we think about music in non-naturalistic terms?

Download or read book A Shocking & Unnatural Incident written by Georgia Ann Mullen and published by Dog Ear Publishing. This book was released on 2009-04 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tess, Beany and Lucy live near the same sleepy canal in Seneca Falls but couldn't be more different. Tomboy Tess is the daughter of a drunken handyman, Beany the timid daughter of a runaway slave, and Lucy the ambitious daughter of a wealthy abolitionist. It's no surprise their goals and personalities clash. All three, however, are enamored of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her First Woman's Rights Convention, but it's not until Tess rescues Stanton and Amelia Bloomer from town bullies and is rewarded with a job printing Bloomer's temperance and women's rights newspaper that they become friends. When Tess' father delivers Beany's mother to slave catchers, the girls fight to save her. A bloody battle on the towpath leaves two of them broken in body and spirit, adrift on the Erie Canal. Adventurous Tess finally gets her wish: She's leaving home. But at what price? And how will she survive? As editor of a regional publication in western New York that ran articles on the Erie Canal and local history, Georgia Mullen visited Seneca Falls to prepare a magazine story on the town and its unique women's rights heritage. A tour of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's home, peppered with funny stories about her yellow floors and absent husband, sparked the germ of a plot for A Shocking & Unnatural Incident. More inspiring were a walk along the Cayuga-Seneca Canal towpath as well as visits to the Women's Rights National Historical Park and the remains of the Wesleyan Chapel, now a monument to the First Woman's Rights Convention. Georgia and her husband live in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she is writing the third book in the Canal Tales Series.
