    Softcover. Condition: Good. One of the finest pieces of social historical analysis on movement politics! Grassroots Resistance offers readers a synthesis for the study of social movements and social change in twentieth-century America. Ordinary men and women occupy the foreground as movers of events rather than observers of history as Goldberg analyzes eight significant movements including the Industrial Workers of the World, the Ku Klux Klan, the Communist Party, and the John Birch Society. The book blends the focus of a historical perspective with the insights of sociological theory to give readers both the necessary dimensions of time and human involvement and a theoretical lens through which to look at pieces of the past.Titles of related interest also available from Waveland Press: Bowers et al., The Rhetoric of Agitation and Control, Third Edition (ISBN 9781577666141); Miller, Introduction to Collective Behavior and Collective Action, Third Edition (ISBN 9781478600572); and Stewart et al., Persuasion and Social Movements, Sixth Edition (ISBN 9781577667773).

    Softcover. Condition: Good. Winner! Nobel Prize for Literature. Guatemalan diplomat and writer Miguel Angel Asturias (1899-1974) began this award-winning work while still a law student. It is a story of ruthless dictator and his schemes to dispose of a political adversary in an unnamed Latin American country usually identified as Guatemala. The book has been acclaimed for portraying both a totalitarian government and its damaging psychological effects. Drawing from his experiences as a journalist writing under repressive conditions, Asturias employs such literary devices as satire to convey the government's transgressions and surrealistic dream sequences to demonstrate the police state's impact on the individual psyche. Asturias's stance against all forms of injustice in Guatemala caused critics to view the author as a compassionate spokesperson for the oppressed. "My work," Asturias promised when he accepted the Nobel Prize, "will continue to reflect the voice of the people, gathering their myths and popular beliefs and at the same time seeking to give birth to a universal consciousness of Latin American problems.".

    Softcover. Condition: Good. Why are human food habits so diverse? Why do Americans recoil at the thought of dog meat? Jews and Moslems, pork? Hindus, beef? Why do Asians abhor milk? In Good to Eat, bestselling author Marvin Harris leads readers on an informative detective adventure to solve the world's major food puzzles. He explains the diversity of the world's gastronomic customs, demonstrating that what appear at first glance to be irrational food tastes turn out really to have been shaped by practical, or economic, or political necessity. In addition, his smart and spirited treatment sheds wisdom on such topics as why there has been an explosion in fast food, why history indicates that it's "bad" to eat people but "good" to kill them, and why children universally reject spinach. Good to Eat is more than an intellectual adventure in food for thought. It is a highly readable, scientifically accurate, and fascinating work that demystifies the causes of myriad human cultural differences.Title of related interest also available from Waveland Press: Kahn, Always Hungry, Never Greedy: Food and the Expression of Gender in a Melanesian Society (ISBN 9780881337761).

    Softcover. Condition: Good. 0. How can we gain new understandings about sex, gender, and sexuality? What are the relationships between culture and gender diversity? How has the diffusion of Euro-American culture affected the sex/gender ideologies of non-European cultures? This eye-opening account of the differences in how sex/gender diversity is experienced in seven cultures raises our consciousness and challenges our intellectual understandings and attitudes about what we consider natural, normal, and morally right. Nanda's examples, which reveal the complexity of social responses toward sex/gender diversity, are ethnographically well documented and represent various geographical areas and sex/gender ideologies. In classic anthropological fashion, Nanda's text enables us to cross the barriers of cultural difference to a recognition of a greater shared humanity.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. A superior treatment of Machiavelli's minor masterpiece! Flaumenhaft's beautifully crafted, literal translation aims to capture the original intent of the playwright. Machiavelli himself distinguished carefully between translations and revisions; thus, Flaumenhaft finds a faithful translation essential to conveying Machiavelli's thought and to allowing direct access to the work. The Prologue explores the relationship between Machiavelli's stage comedies--part of the Comedia Erudita of the Italian Renaissance--and his political books. Mandragola focuses on the interplay between personal and political ethics, a major theme throughout his works. The translation includes helpful notes that clarify allusions, language, and context. Names of characters and places, titles and forms of address, and some familiar Italian words and phrases remain in Italian. Passages in Latin, as well as idioms, are reproduced in the notes.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. 1. Toundi Ondoua, the rural African protagonist of Houseboy, encounters a world of prisms that cast beautiful but unobtainable glimmers, especially for a black youth in colonial Cameroon. Houseboy, written in the form of Toundi's captivating diary and translated from the original French, discloses his awe of the white world and a web of unpredictable experiences. Early on, he escapes his father's angry blows by seeking asylum with his benefactor, the local European priest who meets an untimely death. Toundi then becomes "the Chief European's 'boy'--the dog of the King." Toundi's attempt to fulfill a dream of advancement and improvement opens his eyes to troubling realities. Gradually, preconceptions of the Europeans come crashing down on him as he struggles with his identity, his place in society, and the changing culture.Other titles by African writers from Waveland Press:Ba, So Long a Letter (ISBN 9781577668060)Beti, The Poor Christ of Bomba (ISBN 9781577664185)Emecheta, Kehinde (ISBN 9781577664192)Equiano, Equiano's Travels (ISBN 9781577664871)Head, The Collector of Treasures and Other Botswana Village Tales (ISBN 9781478607601)Head, Maru (ISBN 9781478607618)Head, When Rain Clouds Gather (ISBN 9781478607595)La Guma, In the Fog of the Seasons' End (ISBN 9781478600251)Marechera, The House of Hunger (ISBN 9781478604730)Mofolo, Chaka (ISBN 9781478607151)Ngugi-Mugo, The Trial of Dedan Kimathi (ISBN 9781478611318)Nwapa, Efuru (ISBN 9781478611011)Oyono, The Old Man and the Medal (ISBN 9781478609582)p'Bitek, Song of Lawino & Song of Ocol (ISBN 9781478604723)Plaatje, Mhudi (ISBN 9781478609575)Rifaat, Distant Views of a Minaret and Other Short Stories (ISBN 9781478611288).

    Softcover. Condition: Good. Reprint. An essential work for anyone interested in the society and history of modern China! The first half of the twentieth century was a period of great turmoil in China. Family, one of the most popular Chinese novels of that time, vividly reflects that turmoil and serves as a basis for understanding what followed. Written in 1931, Family has been compared to Dream of the Red Chamber for its superb portrayal of the family life and society of its time. Drawn largely from Pa Chin's own experience, Family is the story of the Kao family compound, consisting of four generations plus servants. It is essentially a picture of the conflict between old China and the new tide rising to destroy it, as manifested in the daily lives of the Kao family, and particularly the three young Kao brothers. Here we see situations that, unique as they are to the time and place of this novel, recall many circumstances of today's world: the conflict between generations and classes, ill-fated love affairs, students' political activities, and the struggle for the liberation of women. The complex passions aroused in Family and in the reader are an indication of the universality of human experience. This novel illustrates the effectiveness of fiction as a vehicle for translating the experience of one culture to another very different one.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. A music textbook created just for future classroom teachers! There is no question that music makes a significant contribution to the quality of human life and that music can play a valuable role in the learning of virtually all subjects taught in the elementary schools. Music for Elementary School Teachers is a concise, easy-to-understand book that covers the essentials of what future elementary classroom teachers need to know in the area of music. It emphasizes the cooperative-supportive role of elementary classroom teachers with music teachers and demonstrates how music can be used with other curricular and classroom activities to enhance and enrich the learning of all subjects. Furthermore, the text s comprehensive coverage is more than adequate for those teachers who find themselves responsible for all the music instruction their students will receive. Outstanding features: 1) Hoffer s presentation is easy to comprehend and is unintimidating for future classroom teachers who have had little music instruction themselves; 2) it covers methods and skills that elementary education majors can normally master in a one-semester course; 3) many helpful suggestions on how to involve music with the teaching and learning of all subjects and with classroom management are valuable for both prospective and practicing teachers; 4) the inclusion of "Projects" and "Review Questions" ensures the maximum comprehension of the material presented in the text; 5) "Skill Development" sections facilitate the learning of rudimentary skills in making music and understanding music notation and provide the opportunities to practice and perfect these skills; and 6) although it does include many songs, it calls upon the student to make use of the existing elementary school music books and their CDS.Also available from Waveland Press by Charles Hoffer, Introduction to Music Education, Fourth Edition (ISBN 9781478634072).

    Softcover. Condition: Good. Thoroughly updated, Noel's concise, practical text offers essential information on identity development as it applies to multicultural education. Discussions are not heavily laden with theory, but when that coverage is warranted, Noel uses clear, jargon-free language and examples of how theory can be applied in the real world. The concepts of identity and culture are introduced through the author's own identity story--an apt way to set the stage for self-exploration, learning new insights, and discovering how teachers can make a positive difference in school and community settings. A section on community "funds of knowledge" explores the theory and practice of connecting with a school's neighborhood community. Other distinctive features include: an extended section on tracking and an entirely new section and reflective writing on the concept of "subtractive schooling," current statistics and identity issues related to refugee and immigrant status, a discussion of Gardner's eighth intelligence (the naturalist intelligence), and new identity stories illustrating the various stages of ethnic identity. The book's advantageous pedagogical tools--group and individual activities, guided discussion questions throughout the chapters, end-of-the-chapter reflective writings, and case studies--help readers to gain a clear vision of how to be an effective teacher in today's diverse communities.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. 4. Understanding the processes of rhetorical criticism--the systematic investigation and explanation of symbolic acts and artifacts--creates opportunities for more effective communication. When we are aware of the various options available in the construction of messages and how they function to produce effects, we have the tools needed to question the messages in artifacts rather than responding uncritically. Sonja Foss, who has an enviable talent for synthesizing complex rhetorical concepts and processes into clear explanations, presents nine methods of rhetorical criticism. She carefully explains and illustrates the theory behind each method with abundant examples of applications. Interesting and lively essays, some written by students, encourage readers to develop their critical skills. Useful bibliographies list additional samples for each type of criticism. Rhetorical criticism is not a process confined to a few assignments in a rhetorical or media criticism course. It is an everyday activity we can use to understand our responses to symbols of all kinds and to create our own symbols to generate the responses we desire.Also by Sonja K.

She provides historical overviews to show how perceptions of gender, race, social, class, sexuality, ability and age have varied throughout time and place. Allen clearly explains pertinent theoretical perspectives and illustrates those and other discussions with real-life experiences (many of which are her own). She also offers practical guidance for how to communicate difference more humanely. While many examples are from organizational contexts, readers from a wide range of backgrounds can relate to them and appreciate their relevance.This eye-opening, vibrant text, suitable for use in a variety of disciplines, motivates readers to think about valuing difference as a positive, enriching feature of society. Interactive elements such as Spotlights on Media, I.D. Checks, Tool Kits, and "Reflection Matters" questions awaken interest, awareness, and creative insights for change.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. 0. Lucid. Magisterial. Subtle. Engaging. This remarkable book has pretty much everything going for it. "If ever there was a time when Asia could be ignored, that time is not the present." Thus begins the opening chapter of this important contribution to our understanding of the bewildering diversity that has existed and continues to exist in the cultures of South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. The first survey of its kind ever published, this volume reflects a great deal of knowledge, thought, curiosity and style. Heinz, in a single, brief book, pulls together some of the major cultural strands by which people in Asian societies have organized their collective life and made their lives meaningful. Heinz effectively brings a range of disciplines into her account, drawing from anthropology, history, geography, linguistics, religious studies, art history, world literature, and political science.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. This engaging textbook encourages students to think critically about the causes of delinquency and possible solutions and to make certain that arguments are grounded in facts not myth. The author provides a solid link between the history of juvenile delinquency and contemporary juvenile issues. Unique to this book is a chapter on social inequality, an essential topic for understanding delinquency and crime. The special problems of girls growing up in a patriarchal society and their experiences in the juvenile justice system are discussed thoroughly in two chapters and throughout the text. Statistics and theory are balanced by descriptions of the everyday realities encountered by juveniles. Delinquency is considered in the context of family, community, school, peers, social class, and culture. Prevention and diversion are twin themes, with particular attention to whether current practices are effective. Thoughtful discussions of racial and socioeconomic inequality, media sensationalism, and zero tolerance provide insight into issues students might have accepted without question. Not-for-sale instructor resource material available to college and university faculty only; contact publisher directly.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. Within the effective format of a nontechnical case study, Life in the Pueblo provides an understanding of the basic methodologies in modern archaeology, including the formation of archaeological sites, dating, the role of ethnographic analogy, and analytic techniques like trace element sourcing, use-wear analysis, and carbon isotope determinations of diet. The archaeological interpretations are put into perspective by the inclusion of Hope and Zuni history and myth and the liberal use of ethnographic information from the Hopi and other historic and modern puebloan groups. A short fictional reconstruction of life in the village invites the reader to reflect on the fact that the past was a period occupied by people, not just potsherds. Based on four years of excavation and ten years of analysis of a puebloan site near modern Flagstaff, Arizona, this profusely illustrated volume captures readers' interest and imagination as it explores some of the fundamental principles of archaeology.Titles of related interest also available from Waveland Press: Dozier, The Pueblo Indians of North America (ISBN 9780881330595); Fagan, Quest for the Past: Great Discoveries in Archaeology, Second Edition (ISBN 9780881337914); Kehoe-Pleger, Archaeology: A Concise Introduction (ISBN 9781577664505); and Struever-Holton, Koster: Americans in Search of Their Prehistoric Past (ISBN 9781577661672).

    Softcover. Condition: Good. One of the most talked-about works ever published in the German Democratic Republic! This innovative novel by an East German writer is a worthy companion to the classic it parodies and parallels: Goethe's The Sufferings of Young Werther. Goethe and J. D. Salinger were the two greatest influences on Edgar Wibeau, "Young W." Edgar is a 17-year-old with the frustrations of teenagers all over the world, living with the added pressures of an East-bloc state. A model all-GDR boy, the son of a factory director, he suddenly drops out. But not from socialism per se--just from conformity, picky regulations, and official disapproval of jeans, the blues, and girls. Hiding out, he finds and devours an old copy of The Sufferings of Young Werther. From then on he wards off reality with Goethe texts, and young Wibeau's fate is superimposed on that of Werther like a transparent overlay. It is an ironic and revealing linkage.

    Softcover. Condition: Good. In Bomba the girls who are being prepared for Christian marriage live together in the women's camp. It is not clear whether the girls have to stay in the women's camp for such long periods for the good of their souls or for the good of the mission-building program. Only gradually does it become apparent that the local churchmen have also been using the local girls for their own purpose.Other titles by African writers from Waveland Press:Ba, So Long a Letter (ISBN 9781577668060)Emecheta, Kehinde (ISBN 9781577664192)Equiano, Equiano's Travels (ISBN 9781577664871)Head, The Collector of Treasures and Other Botswana Village Tales (ISBN 9781478607601)Head, Maru (ISBN 9781478607618)Head, When Rain Clouds Gather (ISBN 9781478607595)La Guma, In the Fog of the Seasons' End (ISBN 9781478600251)Marechera, The House of Hunger (ISBN 9781478604730)Mofolo, Chaka (ISBN 9781478607151)Ngugi-Mugo, The Trial of Dedan Kimathi (ISBN 9781478611318)Nwapa, Efuru (ISBN 9781478611011)Oyono, Houseboy (ISBN 9781577669883)Oyono, The Old Man and the Medal (ISBN 9781478609582)p'Bitek, Song of Lawino & Song of Ocol (ISBN 9781478604723)Plaatje, Mhudi (ISBN 9781478609575)Rifaat, Distant Views of a Minaret and Other Short Stories (ISBN 9781478611288).

  • Softcover. Condition: Good. 4th. While the process of childbirth is, in some sense, everywhere the same, it is also everywhere different in that each culture has produced a birthing system that is strikingly dissimilar from the others. Based on her fieldwork in the United States, Sweden, Holland, and Yucatan, Jordan develops a framework for the discussion and investigation of different birthing systems. Illustrated with useful examples and lively anecdotes from Jordan's own fieldwork, the Fourth Edition of this innovative comparative ethnography brings the reader to a deeper understanding of childbirth as a culturally grounded, biosocially mediated, and interactionally achieved event.Titles of related interest also from Waveland Press: Davis-Floyd, Ways of Knowing about Birth: Mothers, Midwives, Medicine, and Birth Activism (ISBN 9781478633624); Davis-Floyd-Cheyney, Birth in Eight Cultures (ISBN 9781478637905); Gabriel, Touching Bellies, Touching Lives: Midwives of Southern Mexico Tell Their Stories (ISBN 9781478627104); and Holloway, Monique and the Mango Rains: Two Years with a Midwife in Mali (ISBN 9781577664352).

    Softcover. Condition: Good. The latest edition of Rhetoric and Human Consciousness remains a well-researched, accessible examination of rhetorical theory in Western civilization. Smith's in-depth coverage of the major figures who advanced rhetoric is strengthened by his keen analysis of developments in rhetorical theory that resulted from its interaction with other disciplines and the cultures surrounding it. The dialectic between rhetoric and other disciplines (notably philosophy and psychology) illuminate evolving definitions of rhetoric, from myth and display to persuasion and symbolic inducement. Well-chosen, engaging examples demonstrate how rhetoric can find truths, particularly at times when science and reason fail to solve important human crises. Paramount to this well-wrought survey is Smith's ability to show that rhetorical criticism illustrates, verifies, and refines rhetorical theory. Thus, the synergistic relationship between theory and criticism in rhetoric is no different than in other arts.Chief among the Fourth Edition's enhancements are expanded discussions of the historical context for the creation of rhetorical theory and its use in public address; additional coverage of Isocrates, Cicero, Machiavelli, Kenneth Burke, and Michel Foucault; new material on the rhetoric of civil religion, ideological criticism, constitutive discourse, and feminist rhetorical theory; and many fresh examples. Each chapter ends with questions that sharpen readers' retention of concepts and the ability to apply those to everyday life.Titles of related interest from Waveland Press: Foss et al., Contemporary Perspectives on Rhetoric, 30th Anniversary Edition (ISBN 9781478615248); Foss et al., Readings in Contemporary Rhetoric (ISBN 9781577662068); and Hauser, Introduction to Rhetorical Theory, Second Edition (ISBN 9781577662211).
