Book Synopsis The Dog of the South by : Charles Portis
Download or read book The Dog of the South written by Charles Portis and published by Abrams. This book was released on 2007-06-05 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: His wife, Norma, has run off with her ex-husband, taking Ray's cards, shotgun and car. But from the receipts, Ray can track where they've gone. He takes off after them, as does an irritatingly tenacious bail bondsman, both following the romantic couple's spending as far as Mexico. There Ray meets Dr Reo Symes, the seemingly down-on-his-luck and rather eccentric owner of a beaten up and broken down bus, who needs a ride to Belize. The further they drive, in a car held together by coat-hangers and excesses of oil, the wilder their journey gets. But they're not going to give up easily.

Book Synopsis Canis Africanis by : Lance van Sittert
Download or read book Canis Africanis written by Lance van Sittert and published by BRILL. This book was released on 2007-10-30 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The role of the dog in human society is the connecting thread that binds the essays in Canis Africanis, each revealing a different part of the complex social history of southern Africa. The essays range widely from concerns over disease, bestiality, and social degradation through gambling on dogs to anxieties over social status reflected through breed classifications, and social rebellion through resisting the dog tax imposed by colonial authorities. With its focus on dogs in human history, this project is part of what has been termed the ‘animal turn’ in the social sciences, which investigates the spaces which animals inhabit in human society and the way in which animal and human lives interconnect, demonstrating how different human groups construct a range of identities for themselves (and for others) in terms of animals. So instead of conceiving of animals as merely constituents of ecological or agricultural systems, they can be comprehended through their role in human cultures.
Book Synopsis The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture by : M. Thomas Inge
Download or read book The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture written by M. Thomas Inge and published by UNC Press Books. This book was released on 2014-02-01 with total page 534 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Offering a comprehensive view of the South's literary landscape, past and present, this volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture celebrates the region's ever-flourishing literary culture and recognizes the ongoing evolution of the southern literary canon. As new writers draw upon and reshape previous traditions, southern literature has broadened and deepened its connections not just to the American literary mainstream but also to world literatures--a development thoughtfully explored in the essays here. Greatly expanding the content of the literature section in the original Encyclopedia, this volume includes 31 thematic essays addressing major genres of literature; theoretical categories, such as regionalism, the southern gothic, and agrarianism; and themes in southern writing, such as food, religion, and sexuality. Most striking is the fivefold increase in the number of biographical entries, which introduce southern novelists, playwrights, poets, and critics. Special attention is given to contemporary writers and other individuals who have not been widely covered in previous scholarship.
Book Synopsis The Domestic Dog by : Brian Vesey-FitzGerald
Download or read book The Domestic Dog written by Brian Vesey-FitzGerald and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2023-10-09 with total page 273 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: First published in 1957, The Domestic Dog is the introduction to the history of man’s best friend, with special reference to Great Britain. After discussing the natural history of the Canidae and the possible sources of domestication, Mr. Vesey-FitzGerald surveys the career of the domestic dog from its beginnings in pre-historic times through to its present position as household companion and pet. He pays particular attention to the early literature of the dog and, even more particularly, to representations of the dog by the great artists of the world, since he believes that much of the history of the individual breeds can be traced in this way. He discusses the part played by the dog in war, in sport, and in the day-to-day occupations of man. He traces the development of breeding for Show and the growth of the Dog Show from the local rivalry of a few enthusiasts to a vast and complicated business, and considers the effect of breeding for Show on the dog as an animal. Finally, he discusses the most controversial subject, the classification of the domestic dog, and gives brief histories and descriptions of the various breeds. This book will be of interest to students of history, veterinary science as well as to anyone with a love for dogs.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What does "redneck" mean? What's going to happen to the southern accent? What makes black southerners laugh? What is "real" country music? These are the kinds of questions that pop up in this collection of notable essays from Southern Cultures, the journal of the Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Intentionally plural, Southern Cultures was founded in 1993 to present all sides of the American South, from sorority sisters to Pocahontas, from kudzu to the blues. This volume collects 27 essays from the journal's first fifteen years, bringing together some of the most memorable and engaging essays as well as some of those most requested for use in courses. A stellar cast of contributors discusses themes of identity, pride, traditions, changes, conflicts, and stereotypes. Topics range from black migrants in Chicago to Mexican immigrants in North Carolina, from Tennessee wrestlers to Martin Luther King, from the Civil War to contemporary debates about the Confederate flag. Funny and serious, historical and contemporary, the collection offers something new for every South-watcher, with fresh perspectives on enduring debates about the people and cultures of America's most complex region.
