Successful greyhound trainer and bumbling amateur sleuth Kat McKinley is at her wits’ end. Her gorgeous boyfriend Ben is interstate racing his dogs, her anti-everything hippie sister Liz and ex-con boyfriend Scott are making whoopee in her guest room, and nine of Liz’s raucous protester friends have set up camp on her front lawn. So, when Helen McKinley, aka Attila the Hun, her mother, flies into town on her broomstick and says she’s moving in for two weeks, Kat’s life goes from disastrous to crazy ridiculous. Can things possibly get any worse? Absolutely. While Kat’s at the track, someone decides to snuff out one of the protesters on her front-lawn. Her mother inadvertently gets high on a potent cache of marijuana cookies. And after Tater the Chihuahua finds the protester’s body under a load of sand, the police arrest Kat’s mother on suspicion of murder. And it doesn’t stop there. When another protester washes up dead in the Port river and racing greyhounds are inexplicably getting sick while the vets can’t work out why – Kat decides it’s time to keep her dogs safely at home and concentrate on unearthing the real murderer. After all, she seems to be the only one interested in springing her mother out of jail. Trouble is – the more questions Kat asks – the more people seem to die. Will she be next?.

"Extremely well researched, finely nuanced, and clearly written. . . . Her analyses are stunning. . . . This study juxtaposes consideration of non-canonical works with canonical works to produce remarkable insights about the politics of the body during an intensely political period of the nineteenth century."--Barbara Christian, author of "Black Women Novelists" "A superb contribution. . . a highly important study that will make its mark on the fields of American literary and cultural studies. In addition, Sanchez-Eppler performs an extremely valuable political service in exposing the 'asymmetries' between white and Black women in feminist-abolitionist discourse and the manner in which 'moments of identification' become 'acts of appropriation.' This issue continues to be relevant to feminists today. Her extension of this insight to Whitman's 'poetics of merger' is also provocative, adding another dimension to the cautionary enterprise of assessing the limitations of white radicalism."--Carolyn L. Karcher, editor of "Lydia M. Child's Hobomok and Other Writings on Indians" "This book is an insightful, lucid, and persuasive discussion of the tension between the abstract language of the state and the disruptive discourses of abolitionism and feminism. It promises to have a profound impact upon the ways in which teachers, scholars, students, and general readers conceptualize nineteenth-century U. S. literature and culture."--Valerie Smith, author of "Self-Discovery and Authority in Afro-American Narrative".

Download Insane Circumstances Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
Brandi L. Brown hears the fate of a college student who experiences hazing and is leaving the college because it is more than she can bear. Images of the distraught young lady evoke memories of her own college days, ones that had lain dormant for a couple of decades. She leaves work with the intent of writing a letter of consolation to the university student who is returning home. Under the watchful eye of her husband, she begins to tell her own story. The protagonists own story takes place during early integration, and she is among the first colored students to get a scholarship to Claxville University. Her parents do not want her to attend, but she does. While at the university she does experience some hazing and other acts that support her parents arguments about her being unable to succeed at the college. There are also wonderful experiences and good friends to be had, an interracial relationship with a fellow university student (one that is brief, but poignant, passionate, and one that she cannot tell her parents about.) Brandi also has a chance meeting with a taxi driver who proves to be more than thatThaddeus Jerome Pennington becomes her friend, that listening ear that she needs, and soon is the love interest and support she needs to continue at the school. The story has chapters like the Bus Ride, which tells of her trip to the school; Wash Day Folly in which some girls in the dorm steals her underwear from the laundry room; Cross Cultural Comparison Class (CCCC) which starts out comparing romance languages and culture, but soon turns to a comparison of Brandis culture with that of her classmates; and Flo, which helps the reader know who Taxi really is. Insane Circumstances has twenty-two chapters which aid the reader in knowing Brandis story and comprehending how it would serve to help the injured girl. Each action causes a reaction; some that she is proud of and some that she is not so proud of. When the story begins, it is Brandi Leigh Browns story. As events happen, the male character (Taxi) frequently appears. Soon, the novel becomes her story, his story, and their story. In spite of the acts of hazing, etc., she does succeed. She does graduate, and marry this man who becomes her friend for a lifetime. And Thaddeus is there to support her when she writes the letter to the girl she had seen on television, the one who enacted all the memories that lay dormant for so long. Insane Circumstances starts with the desire to write a letter of support to the girl who experienced hazing, and ends with the actual letter..

Download A View to a Death in the Morning Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
What brought the ape out of the trees, and so the man out of the ape, was a taste for blood. This is how the story went, when a few fossils found in Africa in the 1920s seemed to point to hunting as the first human activity among our simian forebears—the force behind our upright posture, skill with tools, domestic arrangements, and warlike ways. Why, on such slim evidence, did the theory take hold? In this engrossing book Matt Cartmill searches out the origins, and the strange allure, of the myth of Man the Hunter. An exhilarating foray into cultural history, A View to a Death in the Morning shows us how hunting has figured in the western imagination from the myth of Artemis to the tale of Bambi—and how its evolving image has reflected our own view of ourselves. A leading biological anthropologist, Cartmill brings remarkable wit and wisdom to his story. Beginning with the killer-ape theory in its post–World War II version, he takes us back through literature and history to other versions of the hunting hypothesis. Earlier accounts of Man the Hunter, drafted in the Renaissance, reveal a growing uneasiness with humanity’s supposed dominion over nature. By delving further into the history of hunting, from its promotion as a maker of men and builder of character to its image as an aristocratic pastime, charged with ritual and eroticism, Cartmill shows us how the hunter has always stood between the human domain and the wild, his status changing with cultural conceptions of that boundary. Cartmill’s inquiry leads us through classical antiquity and Christian tradition, medieval history, Renaissance thought, and the Romantic movement to the most recent controversies over wilderness management and animal rights. Modern ideas about human dominion find their expression in everything from scientific theories and philosophical assertions to Disney movies and sporting magazines. Cartmill’s survey of these sources offers fascinating insight into the significance of hunting as a mythic metaphor in recent times, particularly after the savagery of the world wars reawakened grievous doubts about man’s place in nature. A masterpiece of humanistic science, A View to a Death in the Morning is also a thoughtful meditation on what it means to be human, to stand uncertainly between the wilderness of beast and prey and the peaceable kingdom. This richly illustrated book will captivate readers on every side of the dilemma, from the most avid hunters to their most vehement opponents to those who simply wonder about the import of hunting in human nature..

Download The Moment of Psycho Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
It was made like a television movie, and completed in less than three months. It killed off its star in forty minutes. There was no happy ending. And it offered the most violent scene to date in American film, punctuated by shrieking strings that seared the national consciousness. Nothing like Psycho had existed before; the movie industry -- even America itself -- would never be the same. In The Moment of Psycho, film critic David Thomson situates Psycho in Alfred Hitchcock's career, recreating the mood and time when the seminal film erupted onto film screens worldwide. Thomson shows that Psycho was not just a sensation in film: it altered the very nature of our desires. Sex, violence, and horror took on new life. Psycho, all of a sudden, represented all America wanted from a film -- and, as Thomson brilliantly demonstrates, still does..

Download Churches and Religion in the Second World War Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
Despite the wealth of historical literature on the Second World War, the subject of religion and churches in occupied Europe has been undervalued – until now. This critical European history is unique in delivering a rich and detailed analysis of churches and religion during the Second World War, looking at the Christian religions of occupied Europe: Catholicism, Lutheranism, Calvinism, and Orthodoxy. The authors engage with key themes such as relations between religious institutions and the occupying forces; religion as a key factor in national identity and resistance; theological answers to the Fascist and National Socialist ideologies, especially in terms of the persecution of the Jews; Christians as bystanders or protectors in the Holocaust; and religious life during the war.
