America, America by Elia Kazan Book Summary:

Elia Kazan, ethnic Greek but Turkish by birth, tells the story of the struggles of his uncle, Stavros Topouzoglou, in emigrating to America. In the 1890's, the young, kind-hearted but naive Stavros lives in Anatolia, where the Greek and Armenian minorities are repressed by the Turks, often through violent means. Even Stavros being friends with an Armenian was frowned upon. As such, Stavros dreamed of a better life - specifically in America - where, as a result, he could make his parents proud by his grand accomplishments. Instead, his parents, with most of their money, send Stavros to Constantinople to help fund the carpet shop owned by his first cousin once removed. What Stavros encounters on his journey, made on foot with a small donkey, makes him question life in Anatolia even further. Once in Constantinople, his resolve to earn the 110 Turkish pound third class fare to the United States becomes stronger than ever. Only an earlier good deed may have help him ultimately achieve his goal of reaching the United States and a better life."An astonishing, moving narrative... beautiful."- The New York Times Book Review"What Kazan has done many times before in moving pictures, he has no accomplished with moving words."- Budd Schulberg"Elia Kazan knows how to pack emotion into a story... flicking scenes with the in-and-out thrust of drama."- The New York Times"America, America is Elia Kazan's brilliant first novel that became a masterful motion picture. Both the novel and the film are the creations of the unique genius who created A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, ON THE WATERFRONT, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, THE ARRANGEMENT, and now the magnificent new bestseller, THE ASSASSINS. Marvelous."- James Baldwin

America vs. America (Revised Edition) "Our Rights"

America [Pdf/ePub] eBook

America vs. America (Revised Edition) "Our Rights" by Cody Weinmann Book Summary:

America vs. America is a poetry anthology like no other. While most other books in this genre focus on the politics and who's right and who's wrong. This book takes a twist and encourages individual strength and prosperity while in the grips of an ever-tightening political and social regime that seems to be sweeping the nation at this current time. As the book's cover suggests, it is a head to head battle--America the beautiful versus America the Ugly. Prosperous, theoretical and even past America versus a cold, bureaucracy-washed, hard-nosed America whose role in the world is diminishing. This book is meant to inspire as much as it is meant to criticize, to give as well as to take, to inform as well as to disprove, and to make as well as to break some of the varying social standards that we have put into place that are running us into the ground. We could have beauty and grace, as long as we don't disgrace ourselves to helplessness. There is always a wing and a leg to stand on, despite the pegs that try to prove we the people wrong. We are the creation of God; We are the product; We are the creation of the life we make.

Overcoming America / America Overcoming: Can We Survive Modernity?

America [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Overcoming America / America Overcoming: Can We Survive Modernity? by Stephen C. Rowe Book Summary:

America is in the process of overcoming the modern, which is expressed negatively as hyper-individualism, materialism, moral disease, fundamentalism, and nihilistic terrorism. In its positive expression the modern develops beyond itself, into a post-traditional ethic and spirituality in which it becomes possible to affirm life and reappropriate the wisdom of traditions, in a genuinely pluralistic environment of dialogue, continuous growth, and ever-expanding horizons of "liberty and justice for all".

A Wake Up Call For America: America Has Lost Her Way… But There is Still Hope! by Ron Cantor Book Summary:

Is There Hope for America?Over the past seven years America has drifted from her calling—but is it too late? From celebrating gay marriage to the apathetic reaction to the revelation that aborted babies were being ripped apart and sold for profit, America has abandoned her moral center. The decision of President Obama to take the United States down a few notches has resulted in the creation and success of ISIS and Russia invading Ukraine and Syria, without any fear of repercussions. The fact remains that when America is not strong, people suffer. Christian men are being beheaded and their wives and daughters sold as sex slaves. The decisions Americans make in the coming year could be the difference between blessing and curses. Ron Cantor, with prophetic urgency, reminds Americans of what this calling was and the pathway back to blessing. He doesn’t waste words in this short eBook. You’ll read it one sitting and then want to pray for America.

Seven Events That Made America America: And Proved That the Founding Fathers Were Right All Along by Larry Schweikart Book Summary:

A conservative historian examines some of the pivotal, yet often ignored, moments that shaped our history All students of American history know the big events that dramatically shaped our country. The Civil War, Pearl Harbor, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and 9/11 are just a few. But there are other, less famous events that had an equally profound impact. Notable conservative historian Larry Schweikart takes an in- depth look at seven of these transformative moments and provides an analysis of how each of them spurred a trend that either confirmed or departed from the vision our Founding Fathers had for America. For instance, he shows how Martin Van Buren's creation of a national political party made it possible for Obama to get elected almost two centuries later and how Dwight Eisenhower's heart attack led to a war on red meat, during which the government took control over Americans' diets. In his easy-to-read yet informative style, Schweikart will not only educate but also surprise readers into reevaluating our history.

Bodies of Reform: The Rhetoric of Character in Gilded Age America (America and the Long 19th Century)

America [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Bodies of Reform: The Rhetoric of Character in Gilded Age America (America and the Long 19th Century) by James B. Salazar Book Summary:

From the patricians of the early republic to post-Reconstruction racial scientists, from fin de siècle progressivist social reformers to post-war sociologists, character, that curiously formable yet equally formidable “stuff,” has had a long and checkered history giving shape to the American national identity.Bodies of Reform reconceives this pivotal category of nineteenth-century literature and culture by charting the development of the concept of “character” in the fictional genres, social reform movements, and political cultures of the United States from the mid-nineteenth to the early-twentieth century. By reading novelists such as Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Pauline Hopkins, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman alongside a diverse collection of texts concerned with the mission of building character, including child-rearing guides, muscle-building magazines, libel and naturalization law, Scout handbooks, and success manuals, James B. Salazar uncovers how the cultural practices of representing character operated in tandem with the character-building strategies of social reformers. His innovative reading of this archive offers a radical revision of this defining category in U.S. literature and culture, arguing that character was the keystone of a cultural politics of embodiment, a politics that played a critical role in determining-and contesting-the social mobility, political authority, and cultural meaning of the raced and gendered body.

Luxurious Citizens: The Politics of Consumption in Nineteenth-Century America (America in the Nineteenth Century)

America [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Luxurious Citizens: The Politics of Consumption in Nineteenth-Century America (America in the Nineteenth Century) by Joanna Cohen Book Summary:

After the Revolution, Americans abandoned the political economy of self-denial and sacrifice that had secured their independence. In its place, they created one that empowered the modern citizen-consumer. This profound transformation was the uncoordinated and self-serving work of merchants, manufacturers, advertisers, auctioneers, politicians, and consumers themselves, who collectively created the nation's modern consumer economy: one that encouraged individuals to indulge their desires for the sake of the public good and cast the freedom to consume as a triumph of democracy. In Luxurious Citizens, Joanna Cohen traces the remarkable ways in which Americans tied consumer desire to the national interest between the end of the Revolution and the Civil War.Illuminating the links between political culture, private wants, and imagined economies, Cohen offers a new understanding of the relationship between citizens and the nation-state in nineteenth-century America. By charting the contest over economic rights and obligations in the United States, Luxurious Citizens argues that while many less powerful Americans helped to create the citizen-consumer it was during the Civil War that the Union government made use of this figure, by placing the responsibility for the nation's economic strength and stability on the shoulders of the people. Union victory thus enshrined a new civic duty in American life, one founded on the freedom to buy as you pleased. Reinterpreting the history of the tariff, slavery, and the coming of the Civil War through an examination of everyday acts of consumption and commerce, Cohen reveals the important ways in which nineteenth-century Americans transformed their individual desires for goods into an index of civic worth and fixed unbridled consumption at the heart of modern America's political economy.
