The political movements and social causes of the turbulent 1920s and 30s are brought to life in this study of the work and times of feminist, socialist, and peace activist Rose Henderson (1871-1937). Her commitment to social justice led to frequent monitoring and repression by the authorities but her contributions to activist thought continue to pose challenges for interpretations of the history of Canada, leftism, labour, and women. In the first biography of Henderson, Peter Campbell provides a broader vision and deeper analysis of the period, drawing together the history of labour and of women's movements in French and English Canada, as well as the rise of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation and its relationship with the Communist Party. Through analysis of Henderson's ground-breaking ideology Campbell shows that in the interwar years she and her comrades developed a distinctive feminism that differs from that of the first and second waves of feminist thought. A fresh look at the turmoil of the early twentieth century from an eye in the storm, Rose Henderson: A Woman for the People brings well-deserved attention to an influential feminist and leftist.

In the early 1970s, when women's history began to claim attention as an emerging discipline in North American universities, it was dominated by a middle-class Anglo-Saxon bias. Today the field is much more diverse, a development reflected in the scope of this volume. Rather than documenting the experiences of women solely in a framework of gender analysis, its authors recognize the interaction of race, class, and gender as central in shaping women's lives, and men's. These essays represent an exciting breakthrough in women's studies, expanding the borders of the discipline while breaking down barriers between mainstream and women's history.

A wave of publicity during the 1980s projected Santa Fe to the world as an exotic tourist destination--America's own Tahiti in the desert. The Myth of Santa Fe goes behind the romantic adobe facades and mass marketing stereotypes to tell the fascinating but little known story of how the city's alluring image was quite consciously created early in this century, primarily by Anglo-American newcomers. By investigating the city's trademark architectural style, public ceremonies, the historic preservation movement, and cultural traditions, Wilson unravels the complex interactions of ethnic identity and tourist image-making. Santa Fe's is a distinctly modern success story--the story of a community that transformed itself from a declining provincial capital of 5,000 in 1912 into an internationally recognized tourist destination. But it is also a cautionary tale about the commodification of Native American and Hispanic cultures, and the social displacement and ethnic animosities that can accompany a tourist boom.

The Armageddon Protocol With the end of the Cold War, the 21st Century ushered in a new enemy, one that was dedicated to the destruction of the United States of America and most of the Western world. They were eager to use violence on a massive and vicious scale to accomplish it. These were the members of Islamofascism. The country was to face an enemy that had no homeland and espoused an interpretation of their religion that was extremely violent. The Armageddon Protocol was created to counteract this new threat. Signed by the President in 2002, the Protocol was to be triggered by an attack on America or Israel with a weapon of mass destruction by an Islamic source. It would result with the destruction by thermonuclear weapons on all the holy sites of Islam, with particular interest in Mecca and Madina, as well as any other target of opportunity especially the Iranian nuclear capacity. This would make the holy sites radioactive for a thousand years. The Protocol was the 21st Century's version of the Cold War's Mutual Assured Destruction, the MAD concept. Also in 2002 the elements of the Protocol were provided to all of the terrorist camps and nations throughout the world so that they would not be ignorant of it. There had been no such attacks on America since the establishment of the Protocol. With the election of a new left-leaning President in 2008, who was determined to negotiate with the terrorists at any cost, the Iranian government translated his attitude as weakness. Iran then became determined to use the "Seven Sisters of the Prophet," seven suitcase-sized nuclear weapons originally produced by Russia and sold to Iran. The Iranians intended to infiltrate them into both the United States and Israel. Should even one of these weapon be detonated, it would trigger execution of the Protocol. Its very existence still had not yet made known to the new President. This could result in causing large-scale devastation in the Middle East and perhaps a worldwide conflagration, but could also possibly be an eventual universal blessing. Lieutenant General Henry H. Henderson, who had been appointed by the previous president as Director of the National Security Agency becomes aware of the "Seven Sisters" plot and carefully tries to unlock and defeat it. He is accompanied in this endeavor by Jack and Rose Deiter, his twin sons Butch and Harry and Harry's fiancee Charlie Waggner who travel worldwide in search of the "Sisters."

"As we approach the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition in 2004, attention will inevitably turn to those nineteenth-century explorers who risked life and limb to interpret the natural history of the American West. Beginning with Meriwether Lewis and his discovery of the bitterroot, the goal of most explorers was not merely to find an adequate route to the Pacific, but also to comment on the state of the region's ecology and its suitability for agriculture, and, of course, to collect plant specimens. In this book, Williams follows the trail of over a dozen explorers who "botanized" the Rocky Mountains, and who, by the end of the nineteenth century, became increasingly convinced that the flora of the American West was distinctive. The sheer wonder of discovery, which is not lost on Williams or his subjects, was best captured by botanist Edwin James in 1820 as he emerged above timberline in Colorado to come upon "a region of astonishing beauty.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Despite the stock market crash of October 1929, thousands of theatregoers still flocked to the Great White Way throughout the country’s darkest years. In keeping with the Depression and the events leading up to World War II, 1930s Broadway was distinguished by numerous political revues and musicals, including three by George Gershwin (Strike Up the Band, Of Thee I Sing, and Let ’Em Eat Cake). The decade also saw the last musicals by Gershwin, Jerome Kern, and Vincent Youmans; found Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in full flower; and introduced both Kurt Weill and Harold Arlen’s music to Broadway. In The Complete Book of 1930s Broadway Musicals, Dan Dietz examines in detail every musical that opened on Broadway from 1930 through 1939. This book discusses the era’s major successes, notorious failures, and musicals that closed during their pre-Broadway tryouts. It includes such shows as Anything Goes, As Thousands Cheer, Babes in Arms, The Boys from Syracuse, The Cradle Will Rock, The Green Pastures, Hellzapoppin, Hot Mikado, Porgy and Bess, Roberta, and various editions of Ziegfeld Follies. Each entry contains the following information: Plot summary Cast members Names of all important personnel, including writers, composers, directors, choreographers, producers, and musical directors Opening and closing dates Number of performances Critical commentary Musical numbers and the performers who introduced the songs Production data, including information about tryouts Source material Details about London and other foreign productions Besides separate entries for each production, the book offers numerous appendixes, including a discography, filmography, and list of published scripts, as well as lists of black-themed and Jewish-themed productions. This comprehensive book contains a wealth of information and provides a comprehensive view of each show. The Complete Book of 1930s Broadway Musicals will be of use to scholars, historians, and casual fans of one of the greatest decades in musical theatre history.
