Download or Read book Remembering George Town East written by Julie Venditto and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2010-12-28 with total page 328 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: At five years old, Julianne doesn’t want to move to George Town East, especially when she knows she’ll be separated from her best friend. Still, when Julianne’s dad tells her that the headless people that live in her closet and chase her down the hall won’t follow her to their new house, she starts to look forward to the move. George Town East is where Julianne will spend her childhood and adolescence in the 1970s and 1980s; in this memoir, she recalls a simpler time growing up there. Hot summer days, watching television with the family, riding bicycles, and going to the movies were all mainstays of daily life. This was a time before computers, before cell phones and when children growing up didn’t have a care in the world—except school, summer vacations and then becoming a teenager and falling in love for the first time. Join Julianne as she recalls awkward teenage moments, life in a small town, and a time that no longer exists in Remembering George Town East.

Summary Book and excerpt Remembering Communism :
Download or Read book Remembering Communism written by Maria N. Todorova and published by Central European University Press. This book was released on 2014-10-01 with total page 640 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Remembering Communism examines the formation and transformation of the memory of communism in the post-communist period. The majority of the articles focus on memory practices in the post-Stalinist era in Bulgaria and Romania, with occasional references to the cases of Poland and the GDR. Based on an interdisciplinary approach, including history, anthropology, cultural studies and sociology, the volume examines the mechanisms and processes that influence, determine and mint the private and public memory of communism in the post-1989 era. The common denominator to all essays is the emphasis on the process of remembering in the present, and the modalities by means of which the present perspective shapes processes of remembering, including practices of commemoration and representation of the past. The volume deals with eight major thematic blocks revisiting specific practices in communism such as popular culture and everyday life, childhood, labor, the secret police, and the perception of “the system”.

Download or Read book Remembering the Darkness written by Veronica Shapovalov and published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. This book was released on 2001-08-24 with total page 393 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: This engrossing collection of prison memoirs by Russian women is the first to portray the direct experiences of the wide range of women who were incarcerated in Soviet prisons and camps. Comprising the stories of women from all classes and backgrounds, this book covers the entire span of the Gulag's existence from the 1920s to the 1980s, including the little-known periods of political repression of the 1960s and 1980s. These memoirs and letters provide a rich portrait of how women led everyday life in prison and in the camps, of the strategies of accommodation and resistance they employed, and the challenges they faced when they reentered Soviet society. Although readers will hear the voices of women who were in excruciating physical and emotional pain, they will also find remarkable testimonies to the agency and resilience of women who struggled against incredible odds. Written by women from all stations in life and from drastically different backgrounds, these stories reconstruct not only the world of the Gulag but also its meaning for society at large. The documents excerpted here point to areas of Soviet history and culture that have yet to be fully investigated as they illuminate women's experiences of friendship, work, hope, inspiration, loss, and terror. All the works selected for the collection are united by their authors' sense of group and individual identity. To varying degrees, all of them associate their experiences with events and people beyond their personal experiences and immediate surroundings, thus expanding the traditional perspective of women's writing. These riveting stories, never before published in English or Russian, will appeal to scholars and students of Soviet history and literature, as well as general readers interested in women's history.

Summary Book and excerpt Remembering Jim Crow :
Download or Read book Remembering Jim Crow written by William H. Chafe and published by New Press, The. This book was released on 2014-09-16 with total page 402 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Praised as “viscerally powerful” (Publishers Weekly), this remarkable work of oral history captures the searing experience of the Jim Crow years—enriched by memories of individual, family, and community triumphs and tragedies. In vivid, compelling accounts, men and women from all walks of life tell how their day-to-day lives were subjected to profound and unrelenting racial oppression. At the same time, Remembering Jim Crow is a testament to how black Southerners fought back against the system—raising children, building churches and schools, running businesses, and struggling for respect in a society that denied them the most basic rights. The result is a powerful story of individual and community survival and an important part of the American past that is crucial for us to remember. Based on interviews collected by the Behind the Veil Project at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies, this landmark in African American oral history is now available in an affordable paperback edition and, for the first time, as an e-book with audio of the interviewees—in their own voices.

This book was released on 2016-12-25 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: This is the story of a young, first-time mother who was unprepared for the unimaginable- the possibility of losing her baby. It is a personal story that speaks of the author's experience of losing her baby daughter immediately after her birth. More importantly it is a story of the process she goes through to come to terms with her loss, to forgive herself and forgive others and to move on with her life. The author captures the pain, suffering and shock of the experience of losing her daughter after struggles getting pregnant. But what she also shares is hope-the road she took to heal that suffering. For anyone who has experienced something similar, this is a story of solidarity, but one that demonstrates that survival is possible. In a time that it seems that life cannot continue, when our worlds may be filled by the opposite of life and joy, there is a light. There is a beacon of hope.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: A sweeping novel of the Native American experience as seen by a powerful and controversial member of the Osage nation. C.R. Jones was one of the wealthiest men in Oklahoma. A full-blooded Osage Indian, he'd parlayed the black gold of oil into a position of unassailable power. But behind the success lay a long and tumultuous past: the scrawny kid with a gun who'd ridden with outlaws and avenged his father's brutal murder; the passionate teen who'd pledged his undying love to the one woman he could never have; the driven tycoon who'd made enemies as fast as he made money. Everett Jakomin was the son of one of those enemies. A small-town storekeeper, he hated and feared C.R., until he unexpectedly found himself the keeper of C.R.'s legacy. And as Everett soon discovered, only by learning C.R.'s remarkable story would he ever know the truth about himself. Filled with the color and spirit of Oklahoma history—from the life and lore of the Osage nation to the hardscrabble frontier days of marauding outlaws to the prosperity of the 1950s—here is the stirring tale of two very different men linked by a fierce pride and a tragic secret.
