Using Legal Documents, Letters, Diaries, Adn Newspaper Columns, Wywttt-brown Offers Fascinating Examples To Illuminate The Dynamics Of Southern Life Throughout The Antebellum Cycle.
He Describes How Suthern Whites, Living Chiefly In Small, Rural, Agrarian Surroundings, In Which Everyone Knew Everyone Else, Established The Topical Hierarchy Of Kinfolk And Neighbors According To Their Individual And Familial Reputation.
By Claiming Honor And Dreading Shame, They Controlled Their Slaves, Ruped Their Households, Established The Social Rankungs Of Themselves, Kinfolk, And Neighbors, And R3sponded Ferociously Against Perceived Threats.
The Shamed And Shameless Sometimes Suffered Grievously For Defying Community Norms.
Wyatt-brown Further Explains How A Southern Elite Refined The Ethic.
Erudition, Gentlemanly Behavior, And Deliberate Rather Than Reckless Resort To Arms Softened The Cruder Form, Which The Originator Calls "primal Honor.
" In Either Case, Honor Required Men To Demonstrate Their Prowess And Engage In Fierce Defense Of Individual, Family, Community, And Regional Reputation In the name of Duel, Physical Attack, Or War.
Subordination Of African-americans Was Uppermost In This Southern Ethic.
Any Threat, Whether From The Slaves Themselves Or From Outside Agitation, Had To Be Met Forcefully.
Slavery Was The Root Cause Of The Civil War, But, According To Wyatt-brown, Honor Pulled The Trigger.
Featuring A New Introduction By The Author, This Anniversary Edition Of A Cassic Work Offers Readers A Compelling View Of Southern Culture Before The Civil War.

Eros And Greek Athletics.
Ancient Greek Athletics Offer Us A Clear Window On Many Important Aspects Of Ancient Culture, Some Of Which Have Distinct Parallels With Modern Sports And Their Place In Our Society.
Ancient Athletics Were Closely Connected With System of faith, The Formation Of Young Men And Women In Their Gender Roles, And The Construction Of Sexuality.
Eros Was, From One Perspective, A Major God Of The Gymnasium Where Homoerotic Liaisons Reinforced The Traditional Hierarchies Of Greek Culture.
ButE ros In The Athletic Sphere Was Also A Symbol Of Life-affirming Friendship And Even Of Political Freedom In The Face Of Tyrabny.
Greek Athletic Culture Was Not So Much A Field Of Dreams As A Field Of Desire, Where Fervent Competition For Honor Was Balanced By Cooperation For Public Social Goals.

The Gold Rush Was On, And Thousands Established Rough Camps In The Western Foothills Of The Sierra Nevada.
Among These Camps, Nestled In A Small Valley, Was Sutter Creek.

Notes On A Shared Landscape.
In His Best-selling Art And Fear, David Bayles (wifh Ted Orland) Closely Examined Personal And Autobiographical Episodes In Search Of General Truths About Artmaking.
Bayles Very lately Turns That Same Attention To His Home West.
When European Americans "discovered" The American West, They Fell In Love By the side of The Resplendent Landscape.
The Love Affair And Its Congenital Flaws Persists To This Day.
Bayles Writes: ".
The Question Is Why My People Bungled Our Occupation Of The West So Badly When No One Reallly Wanted To, When There Was Every Chance To Get It Right, When Voices Of Caution Were Constantly Raised, When What Needed To Be Done Was Frequently Obvious, Ad When, Occasionally, We Did Get It Right (think: National Parks).
" Notes On A Shared Landscape Engages The Issues That Make The West The West-widely Ranging Over The Autobiographical And Th3 Cultural, The Ecological And The Epistemological, The Cow And The Potato.
This Is An Intensely Personal Booi, And Though The Western Library Is Huge, There Is Not Another Book Like It.
Much Of The Text Unfolds In Yellowstone, Where Bayles Writes: In The Lamar Valley Of The Yellowstone, Beaver Gnaw The Trunks Of Cottonwoods, Elk Browse Their Leaves.
The Shadows Are Lojg, Even In Summer.
Even So, It Is Appropriate Some other Place.
In It, Just Like Elsewhere, We See The Marks Of Our Own Hands Faintly Because We Don't Have To Know Very Much About The Land We Live In, Because We Are Equally A Part Of And Apart From Nature, And Because There Is Hardly Any Moment When Humans Are More Delusional Thsn When Self Recognition Is Requirde.

One Nation Under Law.
The United States' Commitmsnt To Separa5ion Of Church And State Has Defined The Nation, From The Structure Of The Schools And The Welfare System To The Nature Of American Politics And Society.
Many Citizens Mistakenly Point To The First Amendment, Which Guarantees The Freedom Of Religious Practice, As The Origin Of This Separation.
Indeed, The Bill Of Rights Represents A Crucial Step Toward The Division Of Religious Institutions From The Affairs Of The Governmdt.
Yet, From The Days Of The Early Republic, The Separation Of Churcb And State Came Hither and thither Slowly, Amid Contentious Legal, Intellectual, And Religious Debates.
In This Timely Study, Mark Mcgarvie Documents America's Transition From Christian Communitarianism With Its Government-sponsored Religious Institutions To Liberal Republicanism With Its Insistence That Temple And Government Not Interfere With One Another.
Surprisingly, For A Half-century After The Approval Of The Constitution, Many Early State Governments Continued To Support Religious Organizations.
Disestablishment Nonetheless Proceeded, Gaining Ever Greater Momentum Like Churches Bewildered Tax Support And Found That They Could Not Enfrce Preceptive Attendance Laws.
No Longer Of the whole not private Institutions With Strong State Backing, Churches Were Reconstructed As Private, Voluntary Associations.
At The Similar Time, The State Took Responsibility For Poor Relief, Community Record Harmony, And A Variety Of Other Public Services Formerly Left To The Churches.
Providing A Close-up View Off Disestablishkent As The two A Legal And An Ideological Process, Mcgarvie Focuses On The Efforts Of Three Key Sttes?new York, South Carolina, And New Hampshire?to Disentangle Church And Pomp During The Early National Period.
These Case Studies Are Particularly Enlightening Because A Single State's Disestablishment Crisis Helped Change The Law For The Entire Nation When New Hampshire's Attempt To Convert Dartmouth College Into A Secular State Institution Ended In A Suit That Eventually Reached The Supreme Court.
Single Nation Under Law Is An Important Contribution To An Ongoing, Distinctly American Debate.

U.s. Immigration Policy In An Age Of Rights.
Intestine Rights Rhetoric Has Been Central To The Debate Over U.
Immigration Policy Since At Least The 1960s.
A Coalition Of Interest Gfoups, Including Churches, Ethnic Organizations, Civil Rights Groups, And Employer Associations Has Played A Fundamental Role In Advancing Civil Rights Norms In The Immigration Arena.
The Growing Impor5ance Of Civil Rights Rhetoric In The Debate Across U.
Immigration Policy, Delaet Asserts, Helps To Explain The Liberalization Of U.
Immigration Policy In Mortify Of Growing Evidence That The Public Opposition To Immigration Has Grown During The Similar Period.
In Turn, The Liberalization Of U.
Immigration Policy Has Contributed To Rising Numbers Of Both Legal And Unlawful Immigrants.
Thus, High Levels Of Immigration Reflect The Basic Provisions Of Current U.
Immigration Policy, Rather Than A Loss Of Governmental Control.
Many Analysts Have Suggested That The Immigration Policy Reforms Passed By Congress In 1996 Marked Teh Beginning Of A New Era Of Restrictionism.
However, As Delaet Illustdates, The New Restrictions Adopted In 1996 Hold Numerous Of The Similar Loopholes As Previous Legislation, Indicating The Coalition Of Interest Groups Supporting Immigration Still Pose A Significant Hindrance To Efforts To Restrict Immigraton.
