This book divides into two basic parts. In Chapters 1 and 2 I discuss historical examples of "rumor" discourse and suggest whey many blacks have--for good reason--channeled beliefs about race relations into familiar formulae, ones developed as early as the time of the first contact between sub-Saharan Africans and European white. Then in Chapters 3-7 it explores the continuation of these issues in late-twentieth-century African-American rumors and contemporary legends, using examples collected in the field. Because Turner was able to monitor these contemporary legends as they unfolded and played themselves out, rigorous analysis was possible. What follows, then, is an examination of the themes common to these contemporary items and related historical ones, and an explanation for their persistence. Concerns about conspiracy, contamination, cannibalism, and castration--perceived threats to individual black bodies, which are then translated into animosity toward the race as a whole--run through nearly four hundred years of black contemporary legend material and prove remarkable tenacious.

Can She Overcome The Fear Factor? Gina Angelini never wants to see Josh Corbett again, and everyone knows why. Two years ago he romanced her in front of millions of TV viewers—then surprised the world by picking another contestant to share his life. She's still smarting from his public rejection when he tracks her down to the Napa Valley in California and tries to rewrite their unhappy ending. But a little voice in her head keeps whispering, Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me…. The longer Josh is around Gina, the more he regrets having listened to the show's producers instead of his heart. In fact, he can't really blame the blond, dark-eyed beauty for not giving him the time of day. What he needs now is forgiveness. Maybe that and a few allies in the large and boisterous Angelini clan will be enough to buy him a fresh start. In The Family: The bigger the family, the greater the love

Fasziniert stellen wir fest, dass die Songs unserer Jugend wie Lesezeichen und blitzende Überschriften in der Chronik unserer persönlichen Geschichte wirken. Songs, deren Stimmung und Texte unser Lebensgefühl manchmal besser ausdrückten, als wir selbst es je gekonnt hätten. Songs, von denen wir uns verstanden fühlten; Songs, die wir verstanden! Wirklich? Diese wilde Mischung aus englischen und amerikanischen Jugendslangs, anspruchsvollen Lyrikstücken, Insiderbegriffen aus der Sex- und Drogenszene, Anspielungen auf soziales, zeitgenössisches oder historisches Geschehen – war sie für uns damals überhaupt völlig zu entschlüsseln? Kaum möglich. Dieses Buch ist eine wahre Fundgrube zum richtigen sprachlichen und inhaltlichen Verständnis von mehr als 300 legendären Pop-, Folk- und Rocksongs der 60er- und 70er Jahre. Berücksichtigt wurden sowohl Songs, die es in diesen Jahren bis weit nach oben in die Charts schafften, ebenso wie Folk- und Rocksongs, die auch ohne großen Charts-Erfolg zu Legenden ihrer Musik-Ära wurden. Wenn in diesem Buch Titel wie "Imagine" oder "Yesterday" nicht erwähnt werden, dann liegt das ausschließlich daran, dass diese wunderbaren Lieder gar keine erklärungsbedürftigen Textpassagen aufweisen.
