Book DescriptionThroughout the Americas, performances deriving from medieval European rituals, ceremonies, and festivities made up a crucial part of the cultural cargo shipped from Europe to the overseas settlements In 1583, Sir Humphrey Gilbert sailed from Plymouth England to Newfoundland, bringing with him "morris dancers, hobby обющч horses, and Maylike Conceits" for the "allurement of the savages" and the "solace of our people " His voyage closely resembled that of twelve Franciscan friars who in 1524 hadarrived in what is now Mexico armed with a repertoire of miracle plays, religious processions, and other performances These two events, although far from unique, helped to shape initial encounters between Europeans and indigenous peoples; they also marked the first stages of the process that would leadby no means smoothlyto a distinctively American culture Ritual Imports is a groundbreaking cultural history of European performance traditions in the New World, from the sixteenth century to the present Claire Sponsler examines the role of survivals and adaptations of medieval drama in shaping American culture from colonization through nation building and on to todays multicultural society The books subjects include New Mexican matachines dances and Spanish conquest drama, Albanys Pinkster festival and Afro-Dutch religious celebrations, Philadelphias mummers and the Anglo-Saxon revival, a Brooklyn Italian American saints play, American and German passion plays, and academic reconstructions of medieval drama Drawing on theories of cultural appropriation, Ritual Imports makes an important contribution to medieval and American studies as well as to cultural studies and the history of theater. 2005 г 235 стр ISBN 0801442958.

"I believe a preacher is called from his birth," Reverend Louis Cole told photographer James Perry Walker "He is born into this world to preach, or not to preach " For six years, from 1976 until the reverend's death in 1981, Walker photographed this circuit preacher, the black Baptist congregations he served, and the roads обюъа he traveled The Reverend depicts the life and death of an African American minister who spread the Gospel and inspired his congregants in West Tennessee and North Mississippi Walker fuses his own impressions and the reverend's stories and sermons with intimate photographs to reveal the spiritual depth of one man and the extraordinary impact he had on his flocks In the process, Walker allows the viewer communion with a very private African American culture These photographs were taken over a six year period from 1976 to 1981 and include portraits, landscapes, and intimate scenes of church services and special events The faithful worship at revival meetings, mourn at funerals, celebrate at baptisms, and sing praise at holiday celebrations Converted at the age of fifteen, ordained at nineteen, Reverend Cole was a true circuit preacher of the old style He visited his four churches on a rotating basis, preaching at a different church each Sunday of the month and continually counseling his far-flung seekers The portraits of him reveal a man of great strength and hard-won wisdom who was a pillar of the communities he served Alongside the introduction by Walker and a foreword by Will D Campbell, the Reverend Cole's own words prove to be a parable of Christian struggle and energy in a hard-pressed region He tells his life story in brief incidents, prayers, sermons, and reflections on a variety of subjects ranging from Revelations to hunting dogs The grace and power of Reverend Cole's language heightens the spiritual ecstasy and dignity evident in Walker's beautiful black-and-white photographs Together his words, Campbell's foreword, and Walker's images give testimony to the difficult trials and the abiding, powerful faith of all the reverend's black congregations. 2006 г Твердый переплет, 108 стр ISBN 1578067871.
Hip-Hop and Rap : Complete Lyrics for 175 Songs артикул 1462a.
Book DescriptionRap music's place within the global pantheon of pop culture was forever solidified when Webster's decided to add the slang term "def" to the dictionary Once considered an outsider art form, the music that originated from the streets of New York City has now become the new rock'n'roll, a major force dictating the trends обющс of the day Everything from fashion and advertising to literature and film has been touched by rap's infectious rhyme patterns and rhythmic interplay, making it one of theforemost musical genres of the era At the core of this cultural fascination with rap music are the lyrics, which run the gamut from clever rhyme patterns and lighthearted party fare to gangsta verite, providing a glimpse into inner city life for those far removed from it The end result of this raw street slang bathed in thumping beats has been the creation and ongoing evolution of an art form that speaks to all walks of life The full spectrum of this vibrant genre is represented in this book by nearly100 artists, including: Cypress Hill * Dr Dre * Missy Elliot * Eminem * 50 Cent * Ice Cube * Ja Rule * Wyclef Jean * LL Cool J * Lil' Kim * Ludacris * Method Man * Nas * Nelly * Notorious B I G * Outkast * Public Enemy * P Diddy * Run-DMC * 2Pac * Wu-Tang Clan * and many others. 2003 г 500 стр ISBN 063404964X.

The Weather and a Place to Live: Photographs of the Suburban West (Center for Documentary Studies/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography) артикул 1466a.
In compelling, often stunning black-and-white photographs, The Weather and a Place to Live portrays the manmade landscape of the western United States Here we come face to face with the surreal intersection of the American appetite for suburban development and the resistant, rolling, arid country of the desert West Steven B Smith’s extraordinary обющы photographs take us into the contemporary reality of sprawling suburbs reconfiguring what was once vast, unpopulated territory With arresting concision and an unblinking eye, Smith shows how a new frontier is being won, and suggests too how it may be lost in its very emergence Since the early 1990s Smith has been making large-format photographs in California, Utah, Nevada, and Colorado Based on this body of work, he was chosen as winner of the biennial Center for Documentary Studies/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography The power of these photographs lies in part in Smith’s unusual knowledge of the places he portrays Raised in Utah, Smith has worked on construction crews, and he was a contractor in California after living on the East Coast for a few years When he moved to Los Angeles in 1991, he writes, I was so astounded by what I saw happening to the landscape as it was being developed that I started photographing it immediately The landscapes I saw were scraped bare, re-sculpted, sealed, and then covered so as not to erode away before the building process could be completed Smith’s photographs offer a disturbing vision of the future of our planet, where the desire for home ownership is pitted against the costs of development in epic proportions These altered landscapes force us to consider the consequences of human design battling natural forces across great expanses, a fragile balancing act and a contorted equation in which nature becomes both inspiration and invisible adversary Smith’s elegant photographs of this constructed universe confront us with the beauty of images as images, yet push us to reflect on the devastation possible in the simple act of choosing a place to live. 2005 г Твердый переплет, 128 стр ISBN 0822336111.
