Inherit the Wind Book Description :

The accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared imprecations and abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves. At stake was the freedom of every American. One of the most moving and meaningful plays of our generation. "a tidal wave of a drama." -- New York World-Telegram And Sun

Summer for the Gods Book Description :

The Pulitzer Prize-winning history of the Scopes Trial and the battle over evolution and creation in America's schools. In the summer of 1925, the sleepy hamlet of Dayton, Tennessee, became the setting for one of the twentieth century's most contentious courtroom dramas, pitting William Jennings Bryan and the anti-Darwinists against a teacher named John Scopes, represented by Clarence Darrow and the ACLU, in a famous debate over science, religion, and their place in public education. That trial marked the start of a battle that continues to this day in cities and states throughout the country. Edward Larson's classic Summer for the Gods -- winner of the Pulitzer Prize in History -- is the single most authoritative account of this pivotal event. An afterword assesses the state of the battle between creationism and evolution, and points the way to how it might potentially be resolved.

Jen's life was perfect: a perfect husband who was heir to the Stevens fortune, perfect home, perfect future, and she was expecting her first child. Life was good--no, life was great. Then everything changed in one fiery car crash. Jen's perfect life was thrown into a tailspin of deceit and confusion. Jen's sister-in-law, Alicia, wanted the entire Stevens fortune, and the only thing standing between her and what she so desperately sought was Jen's unborn child. Jen didn't know whom to turn to. Jen was running for her life and for that of her unborn child. Jen, sick, tired, and down to her last six dollars, was in desperate need of help. Surprisingly, that help came from an unlikely source. With the nudging of his housekeeper, reclusive, ill-tempered novelist Mitch Gunther came to Jen's rescue. Thus began a story of suspense and gradual love as Mitch and Jen began a journey that led from the valleys of Virginia to the mountains of East Tennessee as they sought to evade Alicia's henchmen and keep Jen's child and heir safe. First-time novelist L. Lincoln Clark has woven a romantic suspense story that you will find difficult to put down until you have reached its exciting conclusion.

The Field of Cultural Production


  • Author : Pierre Félix Bourdieu
  • Publisher : Columbia University Press
  • Release Date : 1993
  • Genre: Art
  • Pages : 322
  • ISBN 10 : 0231082878


The Field of Cultural Production Book Description :

During the last two decades, sociologist Pierre Bourdieu has become a dominant force in cultural activity ranging from taste in music and art to choices in food and lifestyles. The Field of Cultural Production brings together Bourdieu's major essays on art and literature and provides the first introduction to Bourdieu's writings and theory of a cultural field that situates artistic works within the social conditions of their production, circulation, and consumption. Bourdieu develops a highly original approach to the study of literary and artistic works, addressing many of the key issues that have preoccupied literary art and cultural criticism in the last twentieth century: aesthetic value and canonicity, intertextuality, the institutional frameworks of cultural practice, the social role of intellectuals and artists, and structures of literary and artistic authority. Bourdieu elaborates a theory of the cultural field which situates artistic works within the social conditions of their production, circulation, and consumption. He examines the individuals and institutions involved in making cultural products what they are: not only the writers and artists, but also the publishers, critics, dealers, galleries, and academies. He analyzes the structure of the cultural field itself as well as its position within the broader social structures of power. The essays in his volume examine such diverse topics as Flaubert's point of view, Manet's aesthetic revolution, the historical creation of the pure gaze, and the relationship between art and power. The Field of Cultural Porduction will be of interest to students and scholars from a wide range of disciplines: sociology and social theory, literature, art, and cultural studies.
