Method Acting is one of the most popular and controversial approaches to acting in the United States. It has not only shaped important schools of acting, but has been a fundamental constant of all American acting. This insightful volume explores Method Acting from a broad perspective, focusing on a point of equilibrium between the principles of the Method and its relationship to other theories of performance. David Krasner has gathered together some of the most well-known theater scholars and acting teachers to look at the Method. By concentrating on three areas of the Method - its theory, practice, and future application - the collection will serve to inform and teach us how to approach acting and acting theory in the 21st century.

Generations of the authors ancestors have helped to defend America, from a third great grandfather who fought during the Revolutionary war, to his great grandfather who as a 12 year old drummer boy with the Union Army in 1863 had to learn and execute numerous drum beats while under fire , to the authors own service with the Air Force during the Viet Nam era. Several of these men are introduced in the stories of this book. Among other ancestors mentioned will be a Northern Virginia tavern owner whose 1810 home for wayfarers was well known by its visiting travelers for its ghostly inhabitants, a frontier doctor who was well informed by Shawnee Indian medicine men, the wives of these men, a number of whom bore ten or more children while living in remote areas and under very stressful conditions including threats of Indian attack, a wealthy oilman from Bakersfield California, and a family which organized its own frontier Lutheran Church in the wilds of 18th Century Virginia. From those who immigrated in the great migrations of the 19th century with accommodations in the steerage of cargo ships, we will find carpenters, my wifes grandmother who, as a young girl was given away as an orphan, and her other grandmother who as a frightened young 12 year old girl who spoke no English was left alone at the port in Baltimore. Still other stories include the authors grandfather who was a glazier working with Art Glass when the country first began to make its own stained glass windows, and two great grandmothers, one the authors, and one his wifes, who both gave birth to illegitimate children in Germany and emigrated to America to begin life anew.

Mining The Environment And Indigenous Development Conflicts

From sun-baked Black Mesa to the icy coast of Labrador, native lands for decades have endured mining ventures that have only lately been subject to environmental laws and a recognition of treaty rights. Yet conflicts surrounding mining development and indigenous peoples continue to challenge policy-makers. This book gets to the heart of resource conflicts and environmental impact assessment by asking why indigenous communities support environmental causes in some cases of mining development but not in others. Saleem Ali examines environmental conflicts between mining companies and indigenous communities and with rare objectivity offers a comparative study of the factors leading to those conflicts. Mining, the Environment, and Indigenous Development Conflicts presents four cases from the United States and Canada: the Navajos and Hopis with Peabody Coal in Arizona; the Chippewas with the Crandon Mine proposal in Wisconsin; the Chipewyan Inuits, DŽnŽ and Cree with Cameco in Saskatchewan; and the Innu and Inuits with Inco in Labrador. These cases exemplify different historical relationships with government and industry and provide an instance of high and low levels of Native resistance in each country. Through these cases, Ali analyzes why and under what circumstances tribes agree to negotiated mining agreements on their lands, and why some negotiations are successful and others not. Ali challenges conventional theories of conflict based on economic or environmental cost-benefit analysis, which do not fully capture the dynamics of resistance. He proposes that the underlying issue has less to do with environmental concerns than with sovereignty, which often complicates relationships between tribes and environmental organizations. Activist groups, he observes, fail to understand such tribal concerns and often have problems working with tribes on issues where they may presume a common environmental interest. This book goes beyond popular perceptions of environmentalism to provide a detailed picture of how and when the concerns of industry, society, and tribal governments may converge and when they conflict. As demands for domestic energy exploration increase, it offers clear guidance for such endeavors when native lands are involved.

Not On The Mayflower

Not on the Mayflower tells about the life of Dietrich W. Botstiber in Austria during the first part of the twentieth century. He describes an Austria of great beauty and bounty that, over those years, diminished in size, culture, wealth and prestige, due in large part to the breakup of the Dual Habsburg Empire, the 1938 Anschluss and the ensuing war. Botstiber witnessed the most unsettling times in Austrian history, and he recounts his own unhappiness in a country that offered him little opportunity to apply his technical skills and interests. Dietrich Botstiber believed that Americans did not fully appreciate the Austrian predicament leading up to World War II. His autobiography goes a long way toward imparting an understanding of the difficult social and economic conditions in Austria during this period. It also tells a story about the cultural life in Vienna during the early decades of the twentieth century, and about the lives of immigrants to the United States who managed to make significant contributions to their adopted country.
