The Rural Primitive in American Popular Culture: All Too Familiar studies how the mythology of the primitive rural other became linked to evolutionary theories, both biological and social, that emerged in the mid-nineteenth century. This mythology fit well on the imaginary continuums of primitive to civilized, rural to urbanormative, backward to forward-thinking, and regress versus progress. In each chapter of The Rural Primitive, Karen E. Hayden uses popular cultural depictions of the rural primitive to illustrate the ways in which this trope was used to set poor, rural whites apart from others. Not only were they set apart, however; they were also set further down on the imaginary continuum of progress and regress, of evolution and devolution. Hayden argues that small, rural, tight-knit communities, where “everyone knows everyone” and “everyone is related” came to be an allegory for what will happen if society resists modernization and urbanization. The message of the rural, close-knit community is clear: degeneracy, primitivism, savagery, and an overall devolution will result if groups are allowed to become too insular, too close, too familiar.

Studies In Urbanormativity

The world has been witnessing a long unfolding process of urbanization that not only has altered the structural basis of society in terms of political economy, but has also symbolically relegated rural people and life to a secondary or deviant status through an ideology of urbanormativity. Both structural and cultural changes rooted in urbanization are connected in complex ways to spatial arrangements that can be described in terms of inequality and uneven development. Through a focus on localities, Studies in Urbanormativity: Rural Community in Urban Society examines the implications of urbanization and its corresponding ideology. Urbanormativity justifies rural domination by holding urban life as the standard against which rural forms are compared and deemed to be irregular, inferior, or deviant. Urban production, as conceptualized in this book, is inherently exploitative of rural resources—natural, social, cultural, and symbolic. As this exploitation advances, a wake of entropic conditions is left behind in the forms of degraded landscapes, broken social institutions, and denigrated communities, cultures and identities. Edited by Gregory M. Fulkerson and Alexander R. Thomas, Studies in Urbanormativity engages a topic on which scholars have been surprisingly silent. Designed for advancing theory and practice, the chapters provide new theoretical tools for understanding the complex relationship between the urban and rural. While primarily intended for scholars and practitioners interested in rural life, rural policy, and community development, the insights of this book will also be of interest to scholars studying various forms of cultural and social domination, as well as identity politics.

The current "obesity epidemic" has been at the top of the national and, increasingly, global public agenda for the last decade, the subject of extensive and intensive concern, scrutiny, and corrective efforts from various quarters. In the United States, much of this attention is predicated on the "official" discourse, or story, of obesity-that it is a matter of personal responsibility, specifically to the end of monitoring and ensuring appropriate caloric balance. However, even though it continues to have cultural presumption, that discourse does not resonate with the populace, which may explain why efforts of redress have been notoriously ineffective. In this book, Helene Shugart places obesity in cultural, political, and economic context, arguing that current anxieties regarding obesity reflect the contemporary crisis in neoliberalism, and that the failure of the official discourse of obesity mirrors the failure of neoliberalism more broadly: specifically, to account for authenticity, a powerfully resonant cultural concept today. She chronicles a number of competing discourses of obesity that have arisen in response to the failed official discourse, examining and evaluating each in relation to the idea of authenticity; assessing the practical and behavioral implications of each discourse for both obesity incidence and redress; and establishing the significance of each discourse for negotiating neoliberalism in crisis more broadly.

I might be missing something, but the God that I am discovering is changing my life. I doubt that I will ever be into the moaning and crying. I know His first name is not Ohhhh. At any rate, now I have hope that I am accepted into His family.Glenn Berry knows what it's like to struggle with questions of faith. As a young boy growing up in the countryside hills of Oklahoma, he couldn't help but think that all the sinning that his preachers, his parents, and his Sunday school teachers were talking about sounded like a lot more fun than being an honest, pious Christian. When he became a young adult, this suspicion was proven to be true.Darn It! Maybe I Missed Somethingis the true story of a redneck's path to a life of Christian faith. Berry asks the questions of sin, faith, and forgiveness that the 'proper' theologians shy away from. Along the way, he'll address the doubts, the fears, and the joy of a rebel's coming-to-terms with Jesus.

Venture into the blackness of space with Dewey D. Whites well-wrought The Deep, Wide, and Dark. The science is nothing short of sorcery as an extra-terrestrial humanoid named John Jay Corsey gives mankind a dimensional boost from Einsteins quantum theory for the love of a twenty-year-old stripper. With science heretofore unknown to humans but which was found to be related to the alien spacecraft that crash-landed near Roswell, New Mexico, Corsey becomes the center of a massive project to build the first faster than light starship to take flight into universa incognita searching for two unearthly elements, but quickly more than rocks are found by the newly-minted Space Marine Corps. Corsey found mankind (specifically the U.S. government) unprepared but willing to build the machine. They jumped right in to the project with the verve and gusto typical of modern man: cobbling together human and extra-terrestrial science to make it a shining reality. On a fenced-in, 200 sq. mile swath of Arizona-New Mexico desert, Sol Base One is built. The nascent masters of the deep, wide, and dark universal empyrean, the Space Marines Corps recruits the best minds and bodies to man the Terrain Explorer, the first starship in human history. The rush to build it becomes a race as world politics views it as an unwise decision and prepares to stymie the ships launch after the Space Marines crafty commandant refuses to reveals the program and its intentions. The next decision made is to launch the mission (425 men on board the Terrain Explorer) before the U.N. could send in inspection teams. And thus, the fate of humanitys first venture into the stars is sealed. Join Capt. Jackson Edison Jed Devlon and the crew of the Terrain Explorer in what promises to be a thrilling, masterful exploration of the possibilities of time and space. Will they land on earth-like worlds such as humanity knows, therefore solidifying the fact of infinite replication in the universe? Who, amongst the extra-terrestrial races will they meet and who will be their friend or enemy? How will they survive? The permutations grip readers with excitement. The writing is riveting in detail and shines with crystal-clear believability. The future is at stake
