Black Velvet Art
Eric A. Eliason Photographs by Scott Squire
Jesus, matadors, panthers, bandits, Indians, movie stars, waifs, and, of course, Elvis are recognized icons of the oft-despised, über-kitsch art form of black velvet painting. Black Velvet Art presents a comprehensive overview of this covertly loved and overtly reviled tradition. In cooperation with a network of artists, collectors, importers, and gallery owners in Tijuana, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Calgary, author Eric A. Eliason and photographer Scott Squire draw from the largest survey of velvet painting ever undertaken. The book traces velvet’s historical development as a folk art shaped by both indigenous traditions as An appreciation and discovery of meaning and well as Western consumer expectations in such markets as the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, and particularly the U.S./Mexico border and the black beauty in a popular but velvet capital of Tijuana. In black velvet, class and undervalued art form taste challenge art as a consumer phenomenon, democratic spirit faces down elitism, reproduction questions originality, and sensuality seduces and provokes religiosity. What is most significant about black velvet art to many Americans is its role as the very nadir of bad taste. Black velvet is in many ways the “anti-art.” This book seeks to explore how and why black velvet serves this function and to examine ways it speaks to individuals around the world. Eric A. Eliason, Provo, Utah, is professor of English at Brigham Young University. His books include The J. Golden Kimball Stories and The Fruit of Her Hands: Saba Lace History and Patterns. Scott Squire, Seattle, Washington, is a photographer and filmmaker whose first book, Edges of Bounty: Adventures in the Edible Valley (with William Emery), was published in 2008. His work has appeared in Mother Jones, Seattle’s Art Frye Museum, and PBS’s Frontline.

Sacred Light

Holy Places in Louisiana
A. J. Meek Essay by Marchita B. Mauck
Renowned photographer A. J. Meek takes the novitiate on an inspired visual journey with eighty-eight color photographs of the interiors of churches and synagogues located in south Louisiana, mostly along the lower Mississippi River valley. Tourists may crowd the famous European cathedrals such as Notre Dame in Paris and Westminster Abbey in London. Yet the splendors of local churches in America all too often remain cloistered and unheralded. Meek’s beautiful photographs correct this oversight for Louisiana, a state that features a great many beautiful and long-standing holy places. A decade’s worth of Often incorporating long exposures and select framing, the images in the first section of Sacred fine art photography encompass altars, chancels, and sanctuaries. taken in the most divine Lightsecond section contains photographs of statThe spaces of an elegantly ues representing deities, angels, madonnas, and saints, often seen with intense color derived from devout state stained-glass windows or artificial light. Light itself is the subject of the third and last section. In several photographs, light is transformed by a window into a kaleidoscope of color on a wooden pew or pulpit chair. Other times the light seems to radiate a living presence of its own. Additionally, the book includes an essay by Louisiana State University art historian and liturgical space consultant Marchita B. Mauck. Sacred Light also contains photographs of some of the church and synagogue restoration projects after Hurricane Katrina. Meek relates that the storm was the shadow he was looking for that defines blessed light. He places emphasis on restoration, not destruction, as a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit. A. J. Meek, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is professor emeritus of photography in the School of Art at Louisiana State University.

Steven Spielberg
Joseph McBride

A Biography, Second Edition

Searching for John Ford
Joseph McBride

Frank Capra
Joseph McBride

The Catastrophe of Success

An extensive updating of the major critical biography of an acclaimed director

The definitive biography of one of Hollywood’s master directors

The story of a life tragically at odds with the idealism of Capra’s Americana
Moviegoers often assume Frank Capra’s life resembled his beloved films (such as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and It’s a Wonderful Life). A man of the people faces tremendous odds and, by doing the right thing, triumphs. But as Joseph McBride reveals in this meticulously researched, definitive biography, the reality was far more complex, a true American tragedy. Using declassified U.S. government documents about Capra’s response to being considered a possible “subversive” during the post–World War II Red Scare, McBride adds a final chapter to his unforgettable portrait of the man who gave us It Happened One Night, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, and Meet John Doe. FEBRUARY, 800 pages, 6 x 9 inches, 55 b&w illustrations, appendix, filmography, index Paper $40.00S, 978-1-60473-838-4 Ebook $40.00, 978-1-60473-839-1 Photograph—Frank Capra, courtesy Joseph McBride
“Masterly, comprehensive, and frequently surprising.” —Barry Gewen, the New York Times Book Review “Easily the best—certainly the most realistic—biography of a film director in the age of the Auteur, to which this is a counterbalance.” —Gore Vidal

Until the first edition of Steven Spielberg: A Biography was published in 1997, much about Spielberg’s personality and the forces that shaped it had remained enigmatic, in large part because of his tendency to obscure and mythologize his own past. But in this first full-scale, in-depth biography of Spielberg, Joseph McBride reveals hidden dimensions of the filmmaker’s personality and shows how deeply personal even his most commercial work has been. This new edition adds four chapters to Spielberg’s life story, chronicling his extraordinarily active and creative period from 1997 to the present, a period in which he has balanced his executive duties as one of the partners in the film studio DreamWorks SKG with a remarkable string of films as a director. Spielberg’s ambitious recent work—including Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Minority Report, The Terminal, and Munich—has continually expanded his range both stylistically and in terms of adventurous, often controversial, subject matter. Steven Spielberg: A Biography brought about a reevaluation of the great filmmaker’s life and work by those who viewed him as merely a facile entertainer. This new edition guides readers through the mature artistry of Spielberg’s later period in which he manages, against considerable odds, to run a successful studio while maintaining and enlarging his high artistic standards as one of America’s most thoughtful, sophisticated, and popular filmmakers. FEBRUARY, 640 pages (approx.), 6 x 9 inches, 68 b&w illustrations, filmography, videography, index Paper $30.00T, 978-1-60473-836-0 Ebook $30.00, 978-1-60473-837-7 Photograph—Steven Spielberg, courtesy AP/Wide World Photos

John Ford’s classic films—such as Stagecoach, The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, The Quiet Man, and The Searchers—have earned him worldwide admiration as America’s foremost filmmaker, a director whose rich visual imagination conjures up indelible, deeply moving images of our collective past. Joseph McBride’s Searching for John Ford, described as definitive by both the New York Times and the Irish Times, surpasses all other biographies of the filmmaker in its depth, originality, and insight. Encompassing and illuminating Ford’s myriad complexities and contradictions, McBride traces the trajectory of Ford’s life from his beginnings as “Bull” Feeney, the nearsighted, football-playing son of Irish immigrants in Portland, Maine, to his recognition, after a long, controversial, and much-honored career, as America’s national mythmaker. Blending lively and penetrating analyses of Ford’s films with an impeccably documented narrative of the historical and psychological contexts in which those films were created, McBride has at long last given John Ford the biography his stature demands. FEBRUARY, 848 pages, 6 x 9 inches, 60 b&w illustrations, filmography, index Paper $40.00S, 978-1-60473-467-6 Ebook $40.00, 978-1-60473-468-3 Photograph—John Ford, courtesy Joseph McBride

The Confederate and Neo-Confederate Reader

The “Great Truth” about the “Lost Cause”
Edited by James W. Loewen and Edward H. Sebesta
Most Americans hold basic misconceptions about the Confederacy, the Civil War, and the actions of subsequent neo-Confederates. For example, two-thirds of Americans—including most history teachers—think the Confederate States seceded for “states’ rights.” This error persists because most have never read the key documents about the Confederacy. The 150th anniversary of secession and civil war provides a moment for all Americans to read these documents, properly set in context by award-winning sociologist and historian James W. Loewen and coeditor Edward H. Sebesta, to put in perspective the mythology of the Old South. Resounding documentary When South Carolina seceded, it published “Declaration of the Immediate Causes proof that the original Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union.” The reasoning behind document actually opposes states’ rights. Its secession and subseauthors argue that Northern states were ignorquent myth-making was ing the rights of slave owners as identified by Congress and in the Constitution. Similarly, in defense of slavery and Mississippi’s “Declaration of the Immediate Causes . . .” says, “Our position is thoroughly white supremacy identified with the institution of slavery—the greatest material interest of the world.” Later documents in this collection show how neo-Confederates obfuscated this truth, starting around 1890. The evidence also points to the centrality of race in neo-Confederate thought even today and to the continuing importance of neo-Confederate ideas in American political life. James W. Loewen, Washington, D.C., is the best-selling author of Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong and Lies Across America: What Our Historic Sites Get Wrong. He is also the author of Teaching What Really Happened: How to Avoid the Tyranny of Textbooks; Sundown Towns: A Hidden Dimension of American Racism; Social Science in the Classroom; and Mississippi: Conflict and Change. He is professor emeritus at the University of Vermont. Edward H. Sebesta, Dallas, Texas, is a coeditor of Neo-Confederacy: A Critical Introduction. His articles have appeared in numerous journals.

Civil War Humor
Cameron C. Nickels
In Civil War Humor, author Cameron C. Nickels examines the various forms of comedic popular artifacts produced in America from 1861 to 1865 and looks at how wartime humor was created, disseminated, and received by both sides of the conflict. Broadsides, newspaper journalism, sheet music covers, lithographs, political cartoons, light verse, printed envelopes, comic valentines, humor magazines, and penny dreadfuls—from and for the Union and the Confederacy—are analyzed at length. Nickels argues that the war coincided with the rise of inexpensive mass printing in the United States and thus subsequently with the rise of the country’s widely distributed A thorough account popular culture. As such, the war was as of the extraordinary much a “paper war”—involving the use of publications to disseminate propaganda and breadth of comedic ideas about the Union’s and the Confederacy’s positions—as one taking place on battlefields. output during America’s For both sides humor deflated pretensions, Civil War coped with the sobering realities of war, and established political stances and strategies of critiquing them. Civil War Humor explores how the combatants portrayed Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln, life on the home front, battles, and African Americans. Civil War Humor reproduces over sixty illustrations and texts created during the war and provides close readings of these materials. At the same time, it places this corpus of comedy in the context of wartime history, economies, and tactics. This comprehensive overview examines humor’s role in shaping and reflecting the cultural imagination of the nation during its most tumultuous period.

John Clellon Holmes, Jack Kerouac, and the Beat Generation
Ann Charters and Samuel Charters
John Clellon Holmes met Jack Kerouac on a hot New York City weekend in 1948, and until the end of Kerouac’s life they were—in Holmes’s words—“Brother-Souls.” Both were neophyte novelists, hungry for literary fame but just as hungry to find a new way of responding to their experiences in a postwar American society that for them had lost its direction. Late one night as they sat talking, Kerouac spontaneously created the term “Beat Generation” to describe this new attitude they felt stirring around them. BrotherSouls is the remarkable chronicle of this cornerstone friendship and the life of John Clellon Holmes. A biography of the From 1948 to 1951, when Kerouac’s wanderings took him back to New York, he and two comrades whose Holmes met almost daily. Struggling to find a friendship defined form for the novel he intended to write, Kerouac what it meant to be climbed the stairs to the apartment in midtown Manhattan where Holmes lived with his wife to one of The Beats read the pages of Holmes’s manuscript for the novel Go as they left the typewriter. With the pages of Holmes’s final chapter still in his mind, he was at last able to crack his own writing dilemma. In a burst of creation in April 1951 he drew all the materials he had been gathering into the scroll manuscript of On the Road. Biographer Ann Charters was close to John Clellon Holmes for more than a decade. At his death in 1988 she was one of a handful of scholars allowed access to the voluminous archive of letters, journals, and manuscripts Holmes had been keeping for twenty-five years. In that mass of material waited an untold story. These two ambitious writers, Holmes and Kerouac, shared days and nights arguing over what writing should be, wandering from one explosive party to the next, and hanging on the new sounds of bebop. Through the pages of Holmes’s journals, often written the morning after the events they recount, Charters discovered and mined an unparalleled trove describing the seminal figures of the Beat Generation: Holmes, Kerouac, Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and their friends and lovers. Ann Charters, Storrs, Connecticut, is professor emerita of English at the University of Connecticut, where she taught for more than thirty years. She is the author and editor of numerous books on writers of the Beat Generation, including Beat Down to Your Soul: What Was the Beat Generation?; The Portable Beat Reader; and Kerouac: A Biography. Samuel Charters, the eminent historian of jazz and blues music, is the author of A Trumpet around the Corner: The Story of New Orleans Jazz (University Press of Mississippi), the award-winning The Roots of the Blues, and numerous other titles.

Danny Boyle
Edited by Brent Dunham
A humble man from humble beginnings, Danny Boyle (b. 1956) became a popular cinema darling when Slumdog Millionaire won big at the 2009 Academy Awards. Prior to this achievement, this former theater and television director helped the British film industry pull itself out of a decades-long slump. With Trainspotting, he proved British films could be more than stuffy, period dramas; they could be vivacious and thrilling with dynamic characters and an infectious soundtrack. This collection of interviews traces Boyle’s relatively short fifteen-year film career, from his outstanding low-budget debut Shallow Grave, to his Hollywood studio films, his brief return to television, and his decade-in-the-making renaissance. Taken from a variety of sources including academic journals, mainstream newspapers, and independent bloggers, Danny Boyle: Interviews is one of the first books available on this emerging director. As an interviewee, Boyle displays an engaging honesty and openness. He talks about his films 28 Days Later, Millions, and others. His success proves that storytelling artists still resonate with audiences. Brent Dunham, Chino Hills, California, is an independent film scholar. His work has been published in the International Journal of Technology, Knowledge and Society.

Michael Winterbottom
Edited by Damon Smith
Prolific British director Michael Winterbottom (b. 1961) might be hard to pin down and even harder to categorize. Over sixteen years, he has created feature films as disparate and stylistically diverse as Welcome to Sarajevo, 24 Hour Party People, In This World, Butterfly Kiss, and The Killer Inside Me. But in this collection, the first English-language volume to gather international profiles and substantive interviews with the Blackburn native, Winterbottom reveals how working with small crews, available light, handheld digital cameras, radio mics, and minuscule budgets allows him fewer constraints than most filmmakers, and the ability to capture the specificity of the locations where he “If you have dreams as shoots. a director, you don’t In this book Winterbottom emerges as an industrious filmmaker committed to a want to be worried stripped-down approach whose concern with about how your dreams outsiders and docu-realist authenticity have will be interpreted.” remained constant throughout his career. Collecting pieces from news periodicals as well as scholarly journals, including previously unpublished interviews and the first-ever translation of a lengthy, illuminating exchange with the French editors of Positif, this volume spans the full breadth of Winterbottom’s notably eclectic feature-film career. Damon Smith, Brooklyn, New York, is a film programmer and editor for Babelgum. His work has appeared in Reverse Shot, Boston Globe, Time Out New York, Cinema Scope, and several other publications.

Conversations with Paule Marshall
Edited by James C. Hall and Heather Hathaway
Paule Marshall (b. 1929) is a major contributor to the canons of African American and Caribbean American literature.

Conversations with Russell Banks
Edited by David Roche
If Russell Banks (b. 1940) says he doesn’t “think about [his] reader at all when [he’s] writing,” he clearly enjoys talking with his actual readers, whether they be students, writers or academics, delighting in the diversity of his audience and in the “greater democratization of commentary” provided by alternative media. These conversations span a period of over thirty years, from 1976 with the publication of his first novel, Family Life, and his first collection of short stories, to 2008 with The Reserve. Most date from the late 1990s on, when the publication of Pulitzer-finalist Cloudsplitter in conjunction with the back-toback release of film adaptations of his novels The Sweet Hereafter and Affliction suddenly put Banks in the spotlight as “Hollywood’s Hottest New Property.” Banks has always believed that the writer plays the role of the storyteller, fulfilling very basic and universal human needs: “to talk about the human condition, to tell us something about ourselves.” Yet, for him, writing is not a one-way process. It is an exchange where the key is to tune in and listen—to the voices of the characters engaging the writer’s imagination and to the voices of the readers sharing their own experiences of his books and of the world. David Roche, Dijon, France, is assistant professor at the Université de Bourgogne. He is the author of L’Imagination malsaine: Russell Banks, Raymond Carver, David Cronenberg, Bret Easton Ellis, David Lynch.

Conversations with Tom Robbins
Edited by Liam O. Purdon and Beef Torrey
Since the publication of Another Roadside Attraction in 1971, Tom Robbins (b. 1932) has become known as the principal voice of American countercultural fiction. His cult celebrity was further solidified by the success of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1976) and Still Life With Woodpecker (1980). Robbins’s mix of vivid language, ribald humor, philosophical musings, controversial commentary on religion and sexuality, and concentration on female protagonists and feminine consciousness has marked almost all of his fiction, as well as his short writings. Despite his undeserved reputation as 1960s hippie icon, all of Robbins’s work remains popular and in print, and his later novels—including Jitterbug Perfume (1984), Skinny Legs and All (1990), Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas (1994), Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates (2000), Villa Incognito (2003), and B Is for Beer (2009)—engage thoroughly with current politics, mores, and trends. Conversations with Tom Robbins brings together more than twenty interviews with the acclaimed author, from the mid-1970s to the present. Throughout the volume, Robbins discusses his working methods, his fusion of Eastern and Western philosophical traditions, the need for wit and humor in serious fiction, and the ways living in the Pacific Northwest has fueled his work.

“It’s always been easier for me to let a character speak if I could first imagine myself as a listener.”

Alan Lomax, Assistant in Charge
Edited by Ronald D. Cohen

The Library of Congress Letters, 1935–1945

Alan Lomax (1915–2002) was one of the most stimulating and influential cultural workers of the twentieth century. He began working for the Archive of American Folk Song at the Library of Congress in 1936, first as a special and temporary assistant, then as the permanent Assistant in Charge, starting in June 1937, until he left in late 1942. He recorded Collected correspondence such important musicians as Woody Guthrie, Muddy from arguably the most Waters, Aunt Molly Jackson, important folklorist of the and Jelly Roll Morton. A reading and examination of twentieth century his letters from 1935 to 1945 reveal someone who led an extremely complex, fascinating, and creative life, mostly as a public employee. While Lomax is noted for his field recordings, these collected letters, many signed “Alan Lomax, Assistant in Charge,” are a trove of information until now available only at the Library of Congress. They make it clear that Lomax was very interested in the commercial hillbilly, race, and even popular recordings of the 1920s and after. These letters serve as a way of understanding Lomax’s public and private life during some of his most productive and significant years. Here he speaks for himself through his voluminous correspondence. An award-winning and Grammy-nominated producer, Ronald D.

The Starday Story

The House That Country Music Built
Nathan D. Gibson with Don Pierce
The Starday Story: The House That Country Music Built is the first book entirely dedicated to one of the most influential music labels of the twentieth century. In addition to creating the largest bluegrass catalogue throughout the 1950s and ’60s, Starday was also known for its legendary rockabilly catalogue, an extensive Texas honky-tonk outpouring, classic gospel and sacred recordings, The full story of one of and as a Nashville independent powerhouse studio and label. country music’s most Written with label president and co-founder Don Pierce influential record labels (1915–2005), this book traces the label’s origins in 1953 through the 1968 Starday-King merger. Interviews with artists and their families, employees, and Pierce contribute to the stories behind famous hit songs, including “Y’all Come,” “A Satisfied Mind,” “Why Baby Why,” “Giddy-up Go,” “Alabam,” and many others. Gibson’s research and interviews also shed new light on the musical careers of George Jones, Arlie Duff, Willie Nelson, Roger Miller, the Stanley Brothers, Cowboy Copas, Red Sovine, and countless other Starday artists. Conversations with the children of Pappy Daily and Jack Starns provide a unique perspective on the early days of Starday, and extensive interviews with Pierce offer an insider glance at the country music industry during its golden era. Weathering through the storm of rock and roll and, later, the Nashville Sound, Starday was a home to traditional country musicians and became one of the most successful independent labels in American history. Ultimately, The Starday Story is the definitive record of a country music label that played an integral role in preserving our nation’s musical heritage. Nathan D. Gibson, Bloomington, Indiana, is a graduate student in the department of folklore and ethnomusicology at Indiana University in Bloomington and a performing musician.

Downhome Gospel
Jerrilyn McGregory

African American Spiritual Activism in Wiregrass Country

Jerrilyn McGregory explores sacred music and spiritual activism in a little-known region of the South—the Wiregrass Country of Georgia, Alabama, and north Florida. She examines African American sacred music outside of Sunday church-related activities, showing that singing conventions and anniversary programs fortify spiritual as well as social needs. In this region African Americans maintain a social A study of gospel’s world of their own creation. influence on social Their cultural performances awareness in a region embrace some of the most pervasive forms of African Ameriof the South that lacked can sacred music—spirituals, common meter, Sacred Harp, a plantation economy shape-note, traditional, and contemporary gospel. Moreover, the contexts in which they sing include present-day observations such as the Twentieth of May (Emancipation Day), Burial League Turnouts, and Fifth Sunday. Rather than tracing the evolution of African American sacred music, this ethnographic study focuses on contemporary cultural performances, almost all by women, which embrace all forms. These women promote a womanist theology to ensure the survival of their communities and personal networks. They function in leadership roles that withstand the test of time. Their spiritual activism presents itself as a way of life. In Wiregrass Country, “You don’t have to sing like an angel” is a frequently expressed sentiment. To local adherents, “good” music is God’s music regardless of the manner delivered. Therefore, Downhome Gospel presents gospel music as being more than a transcendent sound. It is local spiritual activism that is writ large and the good news that makes the soul glad. Jerrilyn McGregory, Tallahassee, Florida, is associate professor of English at Florida State University.

The Legs Murder Scandal
Hunter Cole Postscript by Elizabeth Spencer
In Laurel, Mississippi, in 1935, a daughter in a wealthy and troubled family stood accused of murdering her mother. On her testimony, authorities arrested an equally prominent and well-to-do businessman, her reputed lover and accomplice. Ouida Keeton apparently shot her mother, chopped her up, and disposed of most of the corpse down the toilet and in the fireplace, burning all but the pelvic region and the thighs. Attempting to dispose of these remains on a one-lane, isolated road, Ouida left The full story of a trail of evidence that ended in “Mississippi’s Lizzie her arrest. Witnesses had seen her driving there, and within hours, Borden” and the a hunter and his dogs found the sensational matricide body parts and the cloth in which she had wrapped them. that mystified the Touted as the most sensational crime in Mississippi history at the nation time, the Legs Murder of 1935 is almost entirely forgotten today. The controversial outcome, decided by an unsophisticated jury, has been left muddled by ambiguity. The Legs Murder Scandal presents an intricately detailed description of the separate trials of Ouida Keeton and W. M. Carter. Having researched trial transcripts, courthouse records, medical files, and vast newspaper coverage, the author reveals new facts previously distorted by hearsay, hushed reports, and misinformation. He pursues many unanswered questions such as what, really, did Ouida Keeton do with the rest of her mother? The Legs Murder Scandal attempts to provide the reader with clarity in this story, which at once is outlandish, harrowing, and intriguing.

New Orleans Sketches
William Faulkner Edited by Carvel Collins
In 1925 William Faulkner began his professional writing career in earnest while living in the French Quarter of New Orleans. He had published a volume of poetry (The Marble Faun), had written a few book reviews, and had contributed sketches to the University of Mississippi student newspaper. He had served a stint in the Royal Canadian Air Corps and while working in a New Haven bookstore had become acquainted with the wife of the writer Sherwood Anderson. In his first six months in New Orleans, where the Andersons were living, Faulkner made his initial foray into serious fiction writing. Here in one volume are the pieces Faulkner’s early fictional he wrote while in the French Quarter. These published locally in forays that foreshadow werein the Double Dealer.the Times-Picayune and The pieces in New Orleans Sketches broada Nobel laureate in the cast seeds that would take root in later works. making In their themes and motifs these sketches and stories foreshadow the intense personal vision and style that would characterize Faulkner’s mature fiction. As his sketches take on parallels with Christian liturgy and as they portray such characters as an idiot boy similar to Benjy Compson, they reveal evidence of his early literary sophistication. William Faulkner (1897–1962) is considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. His novels include The Sound and the Fury; Light in August; Absalom, Absalom!; Sanctuary; and As I Lay Dying. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. Carvel Collins (1912–1990), one of the foremost authorities on Faulkner’s life and works, served on the faculties of Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Swarthmore College, and the University of Notre Dame, where he was the first to teach a course devoted to Faulkner’s writing.

And One Was a Priest
The Life and Times of Duncan M. Gray Jr.
Araminta Stone Johnston
The story of the civil rights movement is not simply the history of its major players but is also the stories of a host of lesser-known individuals whose actions were essential to the movement’s successes. Duncan M. Gray Jr., an Episcopal priest who served various Mississippi parishes between 1953 and 1974, when he was elected bishop of Mississippi, is one of those individuals. And One Was a Priest is his remarkable story. From one perspective, Gray (b. 1926) would seem an unlikely spokesman for racial equality and reconciliation. He could have been content simply to become a member of the white, male Mississippi “club.” Gray could have embraced a comfortable life and ignored the burning realities around him. But he chose instead to use his priesthood to speak in unpopular but prophetic support of justice and equality for African Americans. From his student days at the seminary at the University of the South, to his first church in Cleveland, Mississippi, and most famously to St. Peter’s Parish in Oxford, where he confronted rioters in 1962, Gray steadfastly and fearlessly fought the status quo. He continued to work for racial reconciliation, inside and outside of the church, throughout his life. This biography tells not only Gray’s story, but also reveals the times and people that helped make him. The author’s question is “What makes a good person?” And One Was a Priest suggests there is much to learn from Gray’s choices and his struggle. Araminta Stone Johnston, Charlotte, North Carolina, is assistant professor of philosophy and religion at Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina. She grew up in Oxford, Mississippi, where she was a member of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.

The Saga of the Slaves of Prospect Hill Plantation and Their Legacy in Liberia

“A superior historical and journalistic investigation, tracing the lives and legacies of freed slaves in America and Africa . . . Thought-provoking and expertly told.” —Kirkus Reviews “A great story. In the journey from Mississippi to Liberia, Huffman has uncovered a fascinating tale that’s spent too long in obscurity.” —San Francisco Chronicle (Best Books of 2004) “Alan Huffman is a brilliant storyteller who pulls off a difficult story with breathtaking skill, taking us from the antebellum South to war-torn Liberia. An absolute pleasure to read.” —Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm When wealthy Mississippi cotton planter The astonishing story Isaac Ross died in 1836, his will decreed that his plantation, Prospect Hill, should be liqui- of a planter’s will, a dated and the proceeds from the sale be used slave revolt, and his to pay for his slaves’ passage to the newly established colony of Liberia in West Africa. freed slaves’ querulous Ross’s heirs contested the will for more than a and deadly legacy in decade, prompting a deadly revolt in which a group of slaves burned Ross’s mansion to the war-torn Liberia ground. But the will was ultimately upheld. The slaves then emigrated to their new home, where they battled the local tribes and built vast plantations with Greek Revival–style mansions in a region the Americo-Africans renamed “Mississippi in Africa.” In the late twentieth century, the seeds of resentment sown over a century of cultural conflict between the colonists and tribal people exploded, begetting two decades of civil war that ended in 2003. Tracking down Prospect Hill’s living descendants, deciphering a history ruled by rumor, and delivering the complete chronicle in riveting prose, journalist Alan Huffman has rescued a lost chapter of American history whose aftermath is far from over. Alan Huffman, Bolton, Mississippi, is the author of Sultana: Surviving the Civil War, Prison, and the Worst Maritime Disaster in American History.

Exploring an overlooked era of Italian history roiled by domestic terrorism, political assassination, and student protests, Drawn and Dangerous: Italian Comics of the 1970s and 1980s shines a new light on what was a dark decade, but an unexpectedly prolific and innovative period among artists of comics intended for adults. Blurring the lines between high art and popular consumption, artists of the Italian comics scene went beyond passively documenting history and began actively shaping it through the creation of fictional worlds where history, cultural data, and pop-realism interacted freely. Featuring brutal Stalinist A record of turbulent supermen, gay space travelers, suburban juvenile delinquents, and student activists, times in which the these comics ultimately revealed a volatile era comics became the more precisely than any mainstream press. Italian comics developed a journalistic, trusted platform to ideology-free, and sardonic approach in attack the status quo representing the key events of their times. Drawn and Dangerous makes a case for the in Italy importance of the adult comics of the 1970s and 1980s. During those years comic production reached its peak in maturity, complexity, and wealth of cultural references. The comic artists’ analyses of the political and religious landscape reveal fresh perspectives on a transformative period in Italian history.

Starting in the mid-1980s, a talented set of comics creators changed the American comicbook industry forever by introducing adult sensibilities and aesthetic considerations into popular genres such as superhero comics and the newspaper strip. Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (1986) and Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s Watchmen (1987) revolutionized the former genre in particular. During this same period, underground and alternative genres began to garner critical acclaim and media attention beyond comics-specific outlets, as best represented by Art Spiegelman’s Maus. Publishers began to collect, bind, and market comics as “graphic novels,” and these appeared in mainstream bookstores and in magazine reviews. The Rise of the American Comics Artist: Creators and Contexts brings together new scholarship surveying the production, distribution, and reception of American comics from this pivotal decade to the present. The collection specifically explores the figure of the comics creator—either as writer, as artist, or as writer and artist—in contemporary U.S. comics, using creators as focal points to evaluate changes to the industry, its aesthetics, and its critical reception. The book also includes essays on landmark creators such as Joe Sacco, Art Spiegelman, and Chris Ware, as well as insightful interviews with Jeff Smith (Bone), Jim Woodring (Frank), and

Dangerous Curves
Jeffrey A. Brown

Action Heroines, Gender, Fetishism, and Popular Culture

An exploration of an art form’s transformation from adolescent charms to adult aesthetics
Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics). As comics have reached new audiences through different material and electronic forms, the public’s broad perception of what comics are has changed.

Dangerous Curves: Action Heroines, Gender, Fetishism, and Popular Culture addresses the conflicted meanings associated with the figure of the action heroine as she has evolved in various media forms since the late 1980s. Jeffrey A. Brown discusses this immensely popular character type as an example of, and challenge to, existing theories about gender as a performance identity. Her assumption of heroic masculine traits combined with her sexualized physical depiction demonstrates the ambiguous nature of traditional gender expectations and indicates a growing awareness of more aggressive and violent roles for women. The excessive sexual fetishization of A consideration of the action heroines is a central theme throughout. The topic is analyzed as an insight into many manifestations of the transgressive image of the dominatrix, as the action heroine a reflection of the shift in popular feminism from second-wave politics to third-wave and post-feminist pleasures, and as a form of patriarchal backlash that facilitates a masculine fantasy of controlling strong female characters. Brown interprets the action heroine as a representation of changing gender dynamics that balances the sexual objectification of women with progressive models of female strength. While the primary focus of this study is the action heroine as represented in Hollywood film and television, the book also includes the action heroine’s emergence in contemporary popular literature, comic books, cartoons, and video games.

The Speeches of Fannie Lou Hamer
To Tell It Like It Is
Edited by Maegan Parker Brooks and Davis W. Houck
Most people who have heard of Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977) are aware of the impassioned testimony that this Mississippi sharecropper and civil rights activist delivered at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. Far fewer people are familiar with the speeches Hamer delivered at the 1968 and 1972 conventions, to say nothing of addresses she gave closer to home, or with Malcolm X in Harlem, or even at the founding of the National Women’s Political Caucus. Until now, dozens of Hamer’s speeches have been buried in archival collections and in the basements of movement veterans. After years of combing library archives, government documents, and private collections across the country, Maegan Parker Brooks and Davis W. Houck have selected twenty-one of Hamer’s most important speeches and testimonies. As the first volume to exclusively showcase Hamer’s talents as an orator, this book includes speeches from the better part of her fifteen-year activist career delivered in response to occasions as distinct as a Vietnam War Moratorium Rally in Berkeley, California, and a summons to testify in a Mississippi courtroom. Brooks and Houck have coupled these heretofore unpublished speeches and testimonies with brief critical descriptions that place Hamer’s words in context. The editors also include the last full-length oral history interview Hamer granted, a recent oral history interview Brooks conducted with Hamer’s daughter, as well as a bibliography of additional primary and secondary sources. The Speeches of Fannie Lou Hamer demonstrates that there is still much to learn about and from this valiant black freedom movement activist.

Count Them One by One
Black Mississippians Fighting for the Right to Vote
Gordon A. Martin, Jr.
In 1961, Forrest County, Mississippi, became a focal point of the civil rights movement when the United States Justice Department filed a lawsuit against its voting registrar Theron Lynd. While 30 percent of the county’s residents were black, only twelve African Americans were on its voting rolls. United States v. Lynd was the first trial that resulted in the conviction of a southern registrar for contempt of court. The case served as a model for other challenges to voter discrimination in the South and was an important influence in shaping the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Count Them One by One is a comprehensive account of the groundbreaking case written by one of the Justice Department’s trial attorneys. Gordon A. Martin, Jr., then a newly minted lawyer, traveled to Hattiesburg from Washington to help shape the federal case against Lynd. He met with and prepared the government’s sixteen courageous black witnesses who had been refused registration, found white witnesses, and was one of the lawyers during the trial. Decades later, Martin returned to Mississippi to find these brave men and women he had never forgotten. He interviewed the still-living witnesseses, their children, and friends. Martin intertwines these current reflections with vivid commentary about the case itself. The result is an impassioned, cogent fusion of reportage, oral history, and memoir about a trial that fundamentally reshaped liberty and the South.

King Cotton in Modern America

A Cultural, Political, and Economic History since 1945

Tradition, Tourism, and Political Ferment in Oaxaca

King Cotton in Modern America places the once preeminent southern crop in historical perspective, showing how “cotton culture” was actually part of the larger culture of the United States despite the widespread perception of its cultivation and sources as hopelessly backward. Leaders in the industry, acting through the National Cotton Council, organized their various and often conflicting segments to How farming of the make the commodity a viable South’s royal fiber part of the greater American economy. The industry faced expanded and changed new challenges, particularly under mechanization and the rise of foreign competition in production and the competition increase of man-made fibers in the consumer market. Modernization and efficiency became key elements for cotton planters. The proliferation of cotton fields in the western states after 1945 enabled America to compete in the world cotton market, but internal dissension developed between the traditional regions of the South and the new areas in the West, particularly over the USDA cotton allotment program. Mechanization had profound social and economic impacts. Combining history with music and literature, D. Clayton Brown carries cotton’s story to the present with a special emphasis on the meaning of cotton in the lore of Memphis’s Beale Street, blues music, and African American migration. D. Clayton Brown, Fort Worth, Texas, is professor of history at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. He is the author of Electricity for Rural America: The Fight for the REA, the children’s book Dwight D. Eisenhower: The Space Race and Cold War, and Globalization and America since 1945.

Made in Mexico examines the aesthetic, political, and sociopolitical aspects of tourism in southern Mexico, particularly in the state of Oaxaca.

With Subcommandante Marcos and the Zapatistas still operating in neighboring Chiapas and unrest on the rise in Oaxaca itself, these are not merely theoretical problems. Chris Goertzen analyzes the nature and meaning of a single craft object, a woven pillowcase from Chiapas, thus previewing what the book will accomplish in greater depth in Oaxaca. He introduces the book’s guiding concepts, especially concerning the types of aesthetic intensification that have replaced fading cultural contexts, and the tragic partnership between ethnic distinctiveness and oppressive politics. He then brings these concepts to bear on crafts in Oaxaca and on Oaxaca’s Guelaguetza, the anchor for tourism in the state and a festival with an increasingly contested meaning.

Recess Battles
Anna R. Beresin Foreword by Brian Sutton-Smith
As children wrestle with culture through their games, recess itself has become a battleground for the control of children’s time. Based on dozens of interviews and the observation of over a thousand children in a racially integrated, working-class public school, Recess Battles is a moving reflection of urban childhood at the turn of the millennium. The book debunks myths about recess violence and challenges the notion that schoolyard play is a waste of time. The author videotaped and recorded children of the Mill School in Philadelphia from 1991 to 2004 and asked them to offer comments as they watched themselves at play. These sessions raise questions about adult power and the changing frames of class, race, ethnicity, and gender. The grownups’ clear misunderstanding of the complexity of children’s play is contrasted with the richness of the children’s folk traditions. Recess Battles is an ethnographic study of lighthearted games, a celebratory presentation of children’s folklore and its conflicts, and a philosophical text concerning the ironies of everyday childhood. Rooted in video micro-ethnography and the traditions of theorists such as Bourdieu, Willis, and Bateson, Recess Battles is written for a lay audience with extensive academic footnotes. Folklorist Brian Sutton-Smith contributes a foreword, and the children themselves illustrate the text with black and white paintings.

Fame to Infamy: Race, Sport, and the Fall from Grace follows the paths of sports figures who were embraced by the general populace but who, through a variety of circumstances, real or imagined, found themselves falling out of favor. The contributors focus on the roles played by athletes, the media, and fans in describing how once-esteemed popular figures find themselves scorned by the same public that at one time viewed them as heroic, laudable, Essays that reveal or otherwise respectable.

How did the average American learn about art in the mid-nineteenth century? With public art museums still in their infancy, and few cities and towns large enough to support art galleries or print shops, Americans relied on mass-circulated illustrated magazines. One group of magazines in particular, known collectively as the Philadelphia pictorials, circulated fine art engravings or paintings, some produced exclusively for cirA history of the culation in these monthlies, to periodicals that brought an eager middle-class reading art and sophistication to audience. These magazines achieved print circulations far a rising bourgeoisie in exceeding those of other print media (such as illustrated gift the heartland books or catalogs from artunion membership organizations). Godey’s, Graham’s, Peterson’s, Miss Leslie’s, and Sartain’s Union Magazine included two to three fine art engravings monthly, “tipped in” to the fronts of the magazines, and designed for pull-out and display. Featuring the work of a fledgling group of American artists who chose American rather than European themes for their paintings, these magazines were crucial to the distribution of American art beyond the purview of the East Coast elite to a widespread middle-class audience. Contributions to these magazines enabled many an American artist and engraver to earn, for the first time in the young nation’s history, a modest living through art. Author Cynthia Lee Patterson examines the economics of artistic production, innovative engraving techniques, regional imitators, the textual “illustrations” accompanying engravings, and the principal artists and engravers contributing to these magazines.

How the daytime drama format reaches or loses its audience in the Internet age

The soap opera, one of U.S. television’s longest-running and most influential formats, is on the brink of disappearing. Declining ratings have been attributed to an increasing number of women working outside the home and to an intensifying competition for viewers’ attention from cable and the Internet. Yet, soaps’ influence has expanded, with serial narratives becoming commonplace on most prime-time TV programs. The Survival of Soap Opera investigates the causes of their dwindling popularity, describes their impact on TV and new media culture, and gleans lessons from their complex history for twenty-first-century media industries. The book contains reflections from established soap scholars such as Robert C. Allen, Louise Spence, Nancy Baym, and Horace Newcomb, along with essays and interviews by emerging scholars, fans, and website moderators, and by soap opera producers, writers, and actors from ABC’s General Hospital, CBS’s The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, and other shows. This diverse group of voices seeks to intervene in the discussion about the fate of soap operas at a critical juncture and speaks to longtime soap viewers, television studies scholars, and media professionals alike.

The Politics of Paul Robeson’s Othello
Lindsey R. Swindall
Lindsey R. Swindall examines the historical and political context of acclaimed African American actor Paul Robeson’s three portrayals of Shakespeare’s Othello in the United Kingdom and the United States. These performances took place in London in 1930, on Broadway in 1943, and in Stratfordupon-Avon in 1959. All three of the productions, when considered together, provide an intriguing glimpse into Robeson’s artistry as well as his political activism. The Politics of Paul Robeson’s Othello maintains that Robeson’s development into a politically minded artist explicates A study of the famed the broader issue of the role of the African actor’s barrier-breaking American artist in times of crisis. Robeson (1898–1976) fervently believed that political Shakespearean engagement was an inherent component of the role of the artist in society, and his perforperformances mances demonstrate this conviction. In the 1930 production, audiences and critics alike confronted the question: Should a black actor play Othello in an otherwise all-white cast? In the 1943 production on Broadway, Robeson consciously used the role as a form for questioning theater segregation both onstage and in the seats. In 1959, after he had become well known for his leftist views and sympathies with Communism, his performance in a major Stratford-upon-Avon production called into question whether audiences could accept onstage an African American who held radical—and increasingly unpopular—political views. Swindall thoughtfully uses Robeson’s Othello performances as a collective lens to analyze the actor and activist’s political and intellectual development. Lindsey R.

In the Lion’s Mouth
Omar H. Ali

Black Populism in the New South, 1886–1900

Following the collapse of Reconstruction in 1877, African Americans organized a movement—distinct from the white Populist movement—in the South and parts of the Midwest for economic and political reform: Black Populism. Between 1886 and 1900, tens of thousands of black farmers, sharecroppers, and agrarian workers created their own organizations and tactics primarily under black leadership. As Black Populism grew as a regional force, it met fierce resistance from the Southern Democrats and constituent white planters and local merchants. African Americans carried out a wide range of activities in this hostile environment. They established farming exchanges and cooperatives; raised money for schools; published newspapers; lobbied for better agrarian legislation; mounted boycotts against agricultural trusts and business monopolies; carried out strikes for better wages; protested the convict lease system, segregated coach boxes, and lynching; demanded black jurors in cases involving black defendants; promoted local political reforms and federal supervision of elections; and ran independent and fusion campaigns. Growing out of the networks established by black churches and fraternal organizations, Black Populism found further expression in the Colored Agricultural Wheels, the southern branch of the Knights of Labor, the Cooperative Workers of America, the Farmers Union, and the Colored Farmers’ Alliance. In the early 1890s African Americans, together with their white counterparts, launched the People’s Party and ran fusion campaigns with the Republican Party. By the turn of the century, Black Populism was crushed by relentless attack, hostile propaganda, and targeted assassinations of leaders and foot soldiers of the movement. The movement’s legacy remains, though, as the largest independent black political movement until the rise of the modern civil rights movement.

Germans and African Americans, unlike other A wide-ranging works on African Americans in Europe, examines the relationship between African Americans and look at the one country, Germany, in great depth. interplay between Germans and African Americans encountered one another within the context of their national one European identities and group experiences. In the nineteenth people and century, German immigrants to America and to such communities as Charleston and Cincinnati African Americans interacted within the boundaries of their old-world experiences and ideas and within surrounding regional notions of a nation fracturing over slavery. In the post–Civil War era in America through the Weimar era, Germany became a place to which African American entertainers, travelers, and intellectuals such as W. E. B. Du Bois could go to escape American racism and find new opportunities. With the rise of the Third Reich, Germany became the personification of racism, and African Americans in the 1930s and 1940s could use Hitler’s evil example to goad America about its own racist practices. Postwar West Germany regained the image as a land more tolerant to African American soldiers than America. African Americans were important to Cold War discourse, especially in the internal ideological struggle between Communist East Germany and democratic West Germany. Unlike many other countries in Europe, Germany has played a variety of different and conflicting roles in the African American narrative and relationship with Europe. It is this diversity of roles that adds to the complexity of African American and German interactions and mutual perceptions over time. Larry A. Greene, South Orange, New Jersey, is a professor of history at Seton Hall University. He is the co-author of two books and author of numerous articles on African American history. Anke Ortlepp, Washington, D.C., is a research fellow with the German Historical Institute. She is the author of numerous books on American cultural history.

After Southern Modernism
Fiction of the Contemporary South
Matthew Guinn
This sweeping study of the literary South’s new direction focuses on nine well-established writers who, by breaking away from the firmly ensconced myths, have emerged as an iconoclastic generation—Harry Crews, Dorothy Allison, Bobbie Ann Mason, Larry Brown, Kaye Gibbons, Randall Kenan, Richard Ford, Cormac McCarthy, and Barry Hannah. Resisting the modernist methods of the past, they have established their own postmodern ground beyond the shadow of their predecessors. Paper $25.00D, 978-1-57806-273-7


Making a Way out of No Way
African American Women and the Second Great Migration
Lisa Krissoff Boehm
The Second Great Migration, the movement of African Americans from the South to the North that began in the early 1940s and tapered off in the late 1960s, transformed America. This migration of approximately five million people helped improve the financial prospects of black Americans, who, in the next generation, moved increasingly into the middle class. Over seven years, Lisa Krissoff Boehm gathered oral histories with women migrants and their children, two groups largely overlooked in the story of this event. Paper $25.00D, 978-1-60473-802-5

A Hard Rain Fell
SDS and Why It Failed
David Barber
“Barber builds a solid case for the argument that many leaders in SDS were blind to their privileges as white men, and that they did not acknowledge the contributions of both African Americans and women. . . . Calls for revolution have been replaced by continued efforts for international peace and more-equitable distribution of opportunities for people of color and women, and there is obviously much more to be done. However, we do learn from the past, and Barber has served us well in making that point.” —The American Historical Review Paper $25.00D, 978-1-60473-855-1

Troubling Violence
A Performance Project
M. Heather Carver and Elaine J. Lawless
This book follows the collaboration between performance studies professor M. Heather Carver and ethnographic folklorist Elaine J. Lawless. The book traces the creative development of a performance troupe in which women take the stage to narrate true, harrowing experiences of domestic violence and then invite audience members to discuss the tales. Similar to the performances, the book presents real-life narratives as a means of heightening social awareness and dialogue about intimate partner violence. Paper $25.00D, 978-1-60473-869-8
