The long-awaited new novel by America's master playwright and activist—a radical reimagining of our history and our hopes and fears Forty years in the making, The American People embodies Larry Kramer's vision of his beloved and accursed homeland. As the founder of ACT UP and the author of Faggots and The Normal Heart, Kramer has decisively affected American lives and letters. Here, as only he can, he tells the heartbreaking and heroic story of one nation under a plague, contaminated by greed, hate, and disease yet host to transcendent acts of courage and kindness. In this magisterial novel's sweeping first volume, which runs up to the 1950s, we meet prehistoric monkeys who spread a peculiar virus, a Native American shaman whose sexual explorations mutate into occult visions, and early English settlers who live as loving same-sex couples only to fall victim to the forces of bigotry. George Washington and Alexander Hamilton revel in unexpected intimacies, and John Wilkes Booth's motives for assassinating Abraham Lincoln are thoroughly revised. In the twentieth century, the nightmare of history deepens as a religious sect conspires with eugenicists, McCarthyites, and Ivy Leaguers to exterminate homosexuals, and the AIDS virus begins to spread. Against all this, Kramer sets the tender story of a middle-class family outside Washington, D.C., trying to get along in the darkest of times. The American People is a work of ribald satire, prophetic anger, and dazzling imagination. It is an encyclopedic indictment written with outrageous love.

Women's lives are often written on their bodies. Yet very little is made of the impacts of embodiment for women in literacy education, both learners and professionals. This volume presents the writings of 26 contributors--teachers, students, and administrators--who examine the rich terrain of personal and professional experiences related to whole person engagement in learning and teaching. These writings provide a compass to guide readers through the bodily landscapes, mindful flights, willful spirits, and emotional embraces. Written with the same desire to open minds, hearts and practices to new understanding, this book builds on the successful style of Empowering Women through Literacy (2009). This new volume appeals to all readers, as the essays, poems, and investigations woven through its pages challenge everyone to consider the embodyment of women's learning. This book is divided into four sections. Section I, North--Earth and Body, contains the following: (1) Four Directions to the Center of Embodiment: Vignette 1--North: Earth and Body--Building a Labyrinth (Mev Miller); (2) Pedagogy of the Body (Dianne Ramdeholl); (3) Literacy as a Journey to Wholeness (Leslie Shelton); (4) Better Self-Esteem Can Create Better Health (Donna Jones); and (5) Looking at You (Geraldine Cannon Becker); and (6) Body as Gateway to Learning: Connecting, Being, and Wholeness (Judy Murphy). Section ii; East--Air and Mind, contains the following: (7) Four Directions to the Center of Embodiment: Vignette 2--East: Air and Mind--Talking Heads? (Mev Miller); (8) My Body Politic: Paying Attention to the Woman Behind the Curtain (Stacie Evans); (9) Reading the Body's Anthology (Lenore Balliro); (10) What Makes the "Good Girl" Good May Not Be Good: Uncovering Hypoactivity in the Classroom (Gail Wood Miller); (11) Loud, Clear, and Visible: Immigrant Women in New York City Make Altered Books (Caryn T. Davis); (12) "We Design Our Hair!" (Patsy Medina and Valerie Akauola); and (13) Call and Response: a Peruvian Student and Her American Teacher in Conversation About Literacy and Life (Tamara Kirson and Sonia Portugal). Section iii, South--Fire and Spirit, contains the following: (14) Four Directions to the Center of Embodiment: Vignette 3--South: Fire and Spirit--Engaging; (15) Spiritual Dimensions in We Learn (Mev Miller); (16) Shame's Shadow: Shhh! (Sheila Stewart); (17) Finding Voice: From Relationship to Literacy, the Potential of Women's Literature Study Groups (Rosi Andrade and Sally J. Stevens); (18) 12 (Corner) Stones: a Model for Literacy, Empowerment, and Development (Carrie Boden McGill); (19) Embodyments of Adult Learning: Reflections on Research and Practice (Julia Zoino-Jeannetti); (20) Beauty Shop Literacies: Nikky Finney and the Sacred Beauty Hour (Alexis Pauline Gumbs); and (21) Virtuous Woman (Shemeka Peters). Section iv, West--Water and Emotion, contains the following: (22) Four Directions to the Center of Embodiment: Vignette 4--West: Water and Emotion--Making Sexuality and Gender Relevant (Mev Miller); (23) Time in a Body (Lynn M. Trudeau); (24) Women's Problems: Hysterectomy (Marie Doerner); (25) Homophobia in the Classroom: One Teacher's Response (Cynthia Peters); (26) Coming Out to Students (Deborah Schwartz); (27) Different, But Not Less: Disability in Women's Learning (Kathleen P. King); and (28) Shelley's Story (Amy R. Trawick). The introduction was written by Mev Miller and Kathleen P. King.

A highly respected, balanced, and thoroughly modern approach to U.S. history, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, POWER: A HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, Seventh Edition, uses these three themes to show how the United States was transformed from hunter-gatherer and agricultural Native American societies into the most powerful industrial nation on Earth. This approach helps students understand the impact of the notions of liberty and equality, which are often associated with the American story and recognize how dominant and subordinate groups have affected and been affected by the ever-shifting balance of power. The text integrates the best of recent social and cultural scholarship-including fun material on movies and other forms of popular culture-into a political story, offering a comprehensive and complete understanding of American history.

For the first time in many years, Langston Hughes's published collections of stories are now available in a single book. Included in this volume are: Ways of White Folks, originally published in 1934; Laughing to Keep from Crying, originally published in 1952; and additional stories from Something in Common and Other Stories, originally published in 1963; as well as previously uncollected stories. These fictions, carefully crafted in the language Hughes loved, manifest the many themes for which he is best known. We meet and come to know many characters--black and white, young and old, men and women & mdash;all as believable as our own families, friends, and acquaintances. Hughes's stories portray people as they actually are: a mixture of good, bad, and much in-between. In these short stories, as in the Simple stories, the reader enjoys Hughes's humor and irony. The stories show us his inclination to mock himself and his beloved people, as much as he ridicules the flaws of those who belittle his race. His genuine characters interact and realistically bring to life this era of America's past. By maintaining the form and format of the original story collections, this volume presents Hughes's stories as he wanted them to be read. This volume will be an invaluable addition to the library of anyone interested in African American literature generally and the fiction of Langston Hughes specifically.

David Thompson's Travels is one of the finest early expressions of the Canadian experience. The work is not only the account of a remarkable life in the fur trade but an extended meditation on the land and Native peoples of western North America. The tale spans the years 1784 to 1807 and extends from the Great Lakes to the Rockies, from Athabasca to Missouri. A distinguished literary work, the Travels alternates between the expository prose of the scientist and the vivid language of the storyteller, animated throughout by a restless spirit of inquiry and sense of wonder. In the first volume of an ambitious three-volume project that will finally bring all of Thompson's writings together, editor William Moreau presents the Travels narrative as it existed in 1850, when the author was forced to abandon his work. Accompanying Moreau's transcription is an introductory essay and a textual introduction, extensive critical annotations, historical and modern maps, and a biographical appendix. The definitive collection of Thompson's works, The Writings of David Thompson will bring one of North American's most important early travellers and surveyors and his world to a whole new generation of readers.

Letters and Homilies for Hellenized Christians Volume 1

Letters and Homilies for Hellenized Christians is the first of three volumes extending Ben Witherington's innovative socio-rhetorical analysis of New Testament books to the latter-Pauline and non-Pauline corpora. A second volume will continue the focus on letters and homilies for Hellenized Christians (1-2 Peter), while a third will focus on letters and homilies for Jewish Christians (Hebrews, James and Jude). By dividing the volumes according to the socio-religious contexts for which they were written, Witherington sheds fresh light on the documents, their provenance, character and importance. Throughout, Witherington shows his thorough knowledge of recent literature on these texts and focuses his attention on the unique insights brought about through socio-rhetorical analysis that either reinforces or corrects those gleaned from other approaches. Strikingly, based on his rhetorical analysis of the Pastorals, he makes the case for Luke as Paul's amanuensis for these letters. He also makes a strenuous argument against New Testament pseudepigrapha. "Bridging the Horizons" sections point to the relevance of the text for believers today, making this volume of special value to pastors and general readers as well as students and scholars.

Taking a look into someone else's story can give you some perspective of your own. I share with you a series of stories based on my life and things I have been through in order to find myself. Read about my strengths, my weaknesses and my struggles. My intent is to reach young women who are in similar situations and possibly help them see their worth. We as women forget the power we have as well as forgetting that we are God's; we are precious and wonderfully made. We should carry ourselves and live as such. However, life happens and lessons are a requirement for our growth.
