Studying Arctic fields : cultures, practices, and environmental sciences
Powell, Richard C., author
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press, [2017]
Introduction -- Scientific sovereignty, nordicity, and the Canadian nation -- Between observation and experiment in Arctic fieldwork -- Base cultures: the spatial organization of a research station -- Performing the Arctic scientific human -- Canada Day in Qausuittuq: dramatizing Inuit encounters -- Emotional practices and play: the quotidian provenance of logistics -- Hidden voices? Competing visions and the everyday governance of Arctic science -- Epilogue: requiem for a Canadian Arctic? -- Note on methodology, sources, and research ethics.

"In recent years the circumpolar region has emerged as the key to understanding global climate change. The plight of the polar bear, resource extraction debates, indigenous self-determination, and competing definitions of sovereignty among Arctic nation-states have brought the northernmost part of the planet to the forefront of public consideration. Yet little is reported about the social world of environmental scientists in the Arctic. What happens at the isolated sites where experts seek to answer the most pressing questions facing the future of humanity? Portraying the social lives of scientists at Resolute in Nunavut and their interactions with logistical staff and Inuit, Richard Powell demonstrates that the scientific community is structured along power differentials in response to gender, class, and race. To explain these social dynamics the author examines the history and vision of the Government of Canada's Polar Continental Shelf Program and John Diefenbaker's 'Northern Vision,' combining ethnography with wider discourses on nationalism, identity, and the postwar evolution of scientific sovereignty in the high Arctic. By revealing an expanded understandding of the scientific life as it relates to politics, history, and cultures, 'Studying Arctic Fields' articulates a new theory of field research. Advocating for a greater appreciation of science in the remote parts of the world, 'Studying Arctic Fields' is an innovative approach to anthropology, environmental inquiry, and geography, and a landmark statement on Arctic science as a social practice"--Back cover.

The sweetness of life : Southern planters at home
Genovese, Eugene D., 1930-2012, author
[Cambridge, United Kingdom] ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
This book examines the home and leisure life of planters in the antebellum American South. Based on a lifetime of research by the late Eugene Genovese (1930-2012), with an introduction and epilogue by Douglas Ambrose, The Sweetness of Life presents a penetrating study of slaveholders and their families in both intimate and domestic settings: at home; attending the theatre; going on vacations to spas and springs; throwing parties; hunting; gambling; drinking and entertaining guests, completing a comprehensive portrait of the slaveholders and the world that they built with slaves. Genovese subtly but powerfully demonstrates how much politics, economics, and religion shaped, informed, and made possible these leisure activities. A fascinating investigation of a little-studied aspect of planter life, The Sweetness of Life broadens our understanding of the world that the slaveholders and their slaves made; a tragic world of both 'sweetness' and slavery.

Smoketown : the untold story of the other great Black Renaissance
Whitaker, Mark, author
New York : Simon & Schuster, 2018
Cast of characters -- The neighborhoods of Pittsburgh -- The Brown Bomber's cornermen -- The Negro Carnegies -- The calculating crusader -- The rise and fall of "Big Red" -- Billy and Lena -- The Double V warriors -- The complex Mr. B -- "Jackie's Boswell" -- The women of "up south" -- The bard of a broken world.

"The other great Renaissance of black culture, influence, and glamour burst forth joyfully in what may seem an unlikely place--Pittsburgh, PA--from the 1920s through the 1950s. Today black Pittsburgh is known as the setting for August Wilson's famed plays about noble but doomed working-class strivers. But this community once had an impact on American history that rivaled the far larger black worlds of Harlem and Chicago. It published the most widely read black newspaper in the country, urging black voters to switch from the Republican to the Democratic Party and then rallying black support for World War II. It fielded two of the greatest baseball teams of the Negro Leagues and introduced Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Pittsburgh was the childhood home of jazz pioneers Billy Strayhorn, Billy Eckstine, Earl Hines, Mary Lou Williams, and Erroll Garner; Hall of Fame slugger Josh Gibson--and August Wilson himself. Some of the most glittering figures of the era were changed forever by the time they spent in the city, from Joe Louis and Satchel Paige to Duke Ellington and Lena Horne. Mark Whitaker's Smoketown is a captivating portrait of this unsung community and a vital addition to the story of black America."--

Sabers and utopias : visions of Latin America
Vargas Llosa, Mario, 1936- author
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2018
"Throughout his career, the Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa has grappled with the concept of Latin America on a global stage. Examining liberal claims and searching for cohesion, he continuously weighs the reality of the continent against the image it projects, and considers the political dangers and possibilities that face this diverse set of countries. Now this illuminating and versatile collection assembles these never-before-translated criticisms and meditations. Reflecting the intellectual development of the writer himself, these essays distill the great events of Latin America's recent history, analyze political groups like FARC and Sendero Luminoso, and evaluate the legacies of infamous leaders such as Papa Doc Duvalier and Fidel Castro. Arranged by theme, they trace Vargas Llosa's unwavering demand for freedom, his embrace of and disenchantment with revolutions, and his critique of nationalism, populism, indigenism, and corruption. From the discovery of liberal ideas to a defense of democracy, buoyed by a passionate invocation of Latin American literature and art, Sabers and Utopias is a monumental collection from one of our most important writers. Uncompromising and adamantly optimistic, these social and political essays are a paean to thoughtful engagement and a brave indictment of the discrimination and fear that can divide a society.."--Jacket flap.
