I have often wondered how many other persons experienced a childhood such as I did with all the bizarre situations that occurred. I am certain that there will be a cause for doubt and skepticism when people read about it. However, they are all true. I don't wish to repeat any of them. Ultimately, I felt Morrison held a unique story of immigrants (mostly related) that held steadfast to their heritage; yet survived by the gifts of the land along with all the challenges and hardships. I also wanted to share in the beauty of Kinzua Country and the Dam that caused us to say goodbye to our homes forever. Kinzua was a quaint village set in a beautiful valley. Morrison (a minute village just a short six miles away) was forgotten in the demise of it. Now a prominent boating and outing area; it is known just for that; not for what it embraced before it was blanketed with the cool waters of the dam.

The Mexican Revolution On The World Stage

Explores the wide-ranging impact of the Mexican Revolution on global cinema and Western intellectual thought. The first major social revolution of the twentieth century, the Mexican Revolution was visually documented in technologically novel ways and to an unprecedented degree during its initial armed phase (1910–21) and the subsequent years of reconstruction (1921–40). Offering a sweeping and compelling new account of this iconic revolution, The Mexican Revolution on the World Stage reveals its profound impact on both global cinema and intellectual thought in and beyond Mexico. Focusing on the period from 1940 to 1970, Adela Pineda Franco examines a group of North American, European, and Latin American filmmakers and intellectuals who mined this extensive visual archive to produce politically engaged cinematic works that also reflect and respond to their own sociohistorical contexts. The author weaves together multilayered analysis of individual films, the history of their production and reception, and broader intellectual developments to illuminate the complex relationship between culture and revolution at the onset of World War II, during the Cold War, and amid the anti-systemic movements agitating Latin America in the 1960s. Ambitious in scope, this book charts an innovative transnational history of not only the visual representation but also the very idea of revolution. “The Mexican Revolution on the World Stage is a first-rate, thoroughly researched work that opens a new area of inquiry in the field. It reveals how the visual archive of the revolution has been locally and globally used and abused to either ascertain or contest the significance of the revolution in differing contexts and periods by delving into the ideological complexities, even paradoxes, of cultural production.” — Zuzana M. Pick, author of Constructing the Image of the Mexican Revolution: Cinema and the Archive “This book is a vital and compelling historical analysis of the contexts and contribution international filmmakers have made to the construction of the Mexican Revolution on film. The archival research is impressive and wide-ranging.” — Niamh Thornton, author of Revolution and Rebellion in Mexican Film

For more than 60 years, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have lived as Israeli citizens within the borders of the nation formed at the end of the 1948 conflict. Occupying a precarious middle ground between the Jewish citizens of Israel and the dispossessed Palestinians of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Palestinians have developed an exceedingly complex relationship with the land they call home; however, in the innumerable discussions of the Israel-Palestine problem, their experiences are often overlooked and forgotten. In this book, historian Ilan Pappe examines how Israeli Palestinians have fared under Jewish rule and what their lives tell us about both Israel's attitude toward minorities and Palestinians' attitudes toward the Jewish state. Drawing upon significant archival and interview material, Pappe analyzes the Israeli state's policy towards its Palestinian citizens, finding discrimination in matters of housing, education, and civil rights. Rigorously researched yet highly readable, The Forgotten Palestinians brings a new and much-needed perspective to the Israel-Palestine debate.

Trailblazing marine biologist, visionary conservationist, deep ecology philosopher, Edward F. Ricketts (1897–1948) has reached legendary status in the California mythos. A true polymath and a thinker ahead of his time, Ricketts was a scientist who worked in passionate collaboration with many of his friends—artists, writers, and influential intellectual figures—including, perhaps most famously, John Steinbeck, who once said that Ricketts's mind "had no horizons." This unprecedented collection, featuring previously unpublished pieces as well as others available for the first time in their original form, reflects the wide scope of Ricketts’s scientific, philosophical, and literary interests during the years he lived and worked on Cannery Row in Monterey, California. These writings, which together illuminate the evolution of Ricketts’s unique, holistic approach to science, include "Verbatim transcription of notes on the Gulf of California trip," the basic manuscript for Steinbeck’s and Ricketts’s Log from the Sea of Cortez; the essays "The Philosophy of Breaking Through" and "A Spiritual Morphology of Poetry;" several shorter pieces on topics including collecting invertebrates and the impact of modernization on Mexican village life; and more. An engaging critical biography and a number of rare photographs offer a new and richly detailed view of Ricketts’s life.

The idea of the village - unspoilt, unpretentious, unchanging and growing almost organically out of the landscape - is one of the most potent in the English imagination. Writers, artists and ordinary people have waxed lyrical on the theme for centuries, while today millions have left the cities in search of the rural idyll. Yet the village is plainly dying. The unchanging rhythms of village life, as experienced with little variations by generations, have vanished. But not without trace ... they exist in living memory. In the voices of men and women for whom the old ways were life-shaping realities. Richard Askwith, an award-winning writer and journalist, describes a journey in search of the quintessential English village, through dales and suburbs, down ancient lanes and estates. He captures the voices of poachers and gamekeepers, farmers and hunters, nurses and postmen, teachers and craftsmen, and demonstrates that, while the landscape more changed than we thought, the past is never so simple as we imagine.

In a time of bewildering and often thoughtless change, A Sense of Home: Abujhmad and a Childhood Village offers a glimpse of another lifestyle, one more bare and closer to nature, but perhaps more complete in its pace and aspirations. A sequel to the acclaimed Bastar Dispatches, it reflects on the life of the Abujhmadia as also that of the people in Ramala, the village of author Narendra's childhood - their shared rhythms and concerns, and the flow of everyday activity. A keen observer of his surroundings, Narendra provides vivid descriptions. Elders and children in the jungles and villages, habits of hygiene, dogs and pigs and their ways with humans, leopards and other nocturnal visitors, close encounters with tigers, Maoists and missionaries - all populate his narrative. There are vignettes of life in a joint family in western Uttar Pradesh where men and women lived separately - in the mardana and the zenana - and the matriarch of the family called the shots. Life in the village seemed quintessentially Abujhmadia - people being content with what they had and not wanting more, for themselves or their simple relationships, families and villages. A Sense of Home is a gentle but strong reminder of the value of what we might be missing in our lives.

The history of a town lingers in the memory of those who remember its glorious days, it can not be erased from the face of the earth although the routes, roads or maps to it are covered by indifference, burying them in the deepest of oblivions. As long as there is only one being that makes his memory his, it will remain forever. The great evil of humanity is losing memory Some say that and I think it is true, there is nothing worse than not being able (or not wanting) to remember the events that make up our own history and then, sadly, having to see us stumbling over the same stone, again and again. The political history of my people drinks water from the source of forgetfulness, from oblivion lives and stays, the political history of my people, it is like an eternal night where there is no sign of the dawn.
