Education for Empire brings together topics in American history often treated separately: schools, race, immigration, and empire building. During the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, American imperial ambitions abroad expanded as the country's public school system grew. How did this imperialism affect public education? School officials, teachers, and textbook authors used public education to place children, both native and foreign-born, on multiple uneven paths to citizenship. Using case studies from around the country, Clif Stratton deftly shows that public schooling and colonialism were intimately intertwined. This book reveals how students--from Asians in the U.S. West and Hawai'i to blacks in the South, Mexicans in the Southwest, and Puerto Ricans in the Caribbean and New York City--grappled with the expectations of citizenship imposed by nationalist professionals at the helm of curriculum and policy. Students of American history, American studies, and the history of education will find Education for Empire an eminently valuable book.
This collection is the first to specifically address our current understanding of the evolution of human childhood, which in turn significantly affects our interpretations of the evolution of family formation, social organization, cultural transmission, cognition, ontogeny, and the physical and socioemotional needs of children. Moreover, the importance of studying the evolution of childhood has begun to extend beyond academic modeling and into real-world applications for maternal and child health and well-being in contemporary populations around the world. Combined, the chapters show that what we call childhood is culturally variable yet biologically based and has been critical to the evolutionary success of our species; the significance of integrating childhood into models of human life history and evolution cannot be overstated. This volume further demonstrates the benefits of interdisciplinary investigation and is sure to spur further interest in the field.

Two of Ezra Meeker¿s most defining traits were his ability to recognize business opportunities and his willingness to take risks. The Oregon Trail pioneer traveled west in 1852, eventually settling in the Puyallup Valley.
In the mid-1860s, he planted his first hops and attained modest success. Serving as a broker, he traveled to New York and London to open new markets, and hired a chemist to confirm Northwest hops produced more extract than those grown in Bavaria or New York.
In 1882, Pacific coast growers benefited from widespread crop failure elsewhere. Desperate brewers offered astronomical prices. E. Meeker and Co. became the largest hops exporter in the country, and Ezra the official ¿hop king.¿
As an outstanding entrepreneur on a local and global scale and through his involvement in pivotal regional events such as women¿s suffrage and the Chinese expulsion, Meeker helped transform the landscape, economics, and politics of his adopted home on Puget Sound.

El Tumulto Del Pulque De 1692 by Francisco Manzo-Robledo
Publication Date: 2016-12-16
En el segundo piso del Palacio Nacional en la ciudad de MExico, Diego Rivera dejO plasmado un homenaje silencioso a la planta cuya utilizaciOn por los indIgenas, antes y poco despuEs de iniciada la colonia, era completa, sin que se desperdiciaran ni siquiera las agujas en las puntas de sus hojas. Para un lector moderno, parecerIa extraNo considerar a la planta del maguey como una herramienta de la cual el diablo se vale para sus elucubraciones y planes de condenar cristianos. Sin embargo, en el tumulto de 1692, eso es precisamente de lo que se le acusa: al levantamiento violento de los indIgenas por la falta de granos en la ciudad de MExico y despuEs en la ciudad de Tlaxcala, semanas despuEs, se le atribuye culpa, tras bambalinas, al efecto de una bebida diabOlica: el pulque, un producto que autoridades pre coloniales habIan controlado en su consumo, y que autoridades coloniales no acertaban a cOmo hacerlo al desencadenarse una confrontaciOn econOmica--moral: Rey vs. Iglesia. El uno mejorando sus arcas reales, el otro lado intentando el control de los actos privados y pUblicos de los indIgenas, principales consumidores del pulque. El tumulto de 1692, funcionO como catalItico para detener la entrada, al menos por unos aNos, de esa bebida ancestral. En este estudio se presenta un anAlisis del tumulto visto desde el lado del que sabe escribir (con mAs de cincuenta documentos aquI incluidos), de autoridades e intelectuales: Iglesia, Universidad, contestando a la pregunta del Virrey (herido en su autoridad) sobre los beneficios de negar la entrada del pulque diabOlico (no el agua miel) a la ciudad de MExico, sus alrededores y, posteriormente, tambiEn a la honorable ciudad de Tlaxcala. Este estudio se hace plantado en la triada Sor Juana--Virrey--Iglesia, puntos importantes, y desde diferentes visiones, del tumulto de 1692, y los que continUan para Sor Juana. De los documentos incluidos (producidos a casi dos siglos del llamado "descubrimiento"), se destila la matriz de una triste y marginadora representaciOn [MR] del indIgena bebedor del pulque, que muy bien coincide con otras mAs actualizadas en nuestros tiempos.

The Statue of Liberty - depicted on a roadside billboard - did not carry her customary torch and tablet. Instead, she shielded her eyes from words that towered beside her, words that highway drivers could not possibly avoid: "We are no longer a Christian nation." Underneath was the name of theman who spoke them, the nation's president, Barack Obama. He had made the original statement - "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation, at least not just" - four years earlier. Since then those words had appeared, in one form or another, not just on billboards but in a host ofother venues, a visible symbol of America's divide over religion and politics.In Faith in the New Millennium, a group of leading historians explores the shifting role of religion in American politics in the age of Obama, shedding new and fascinating light on the interplay of faith and politics. Each of the sixteen contributors examines a contemporary issue, controversy, orpolicy through a historical lens. In an age of the 24-hour-news-cycle, where complexity is often buried under bluster, these essays make a powerful case for understanding the stories behind the news. They tackle such topics as immigration reform, racial turmoil, drone wars, foreign policy, and theunstoppable rise of social media. Taken together, they reveal how faith is shaping modern America, and how modern America is shaping faith.

During the first two years of Ronald Reagan s second term the United States developed an offensive strategy for dealing with conflict in the developing world. Nicaragua was a primary target of this policy. Scholars refer to this as the Reagan offensive: the first time that the United States eschewed the norms of containment and sought to roll-back the gains of communism. However, the Reagan offensive was also significantly driven by a response to the emergent threat of international terrorism. Terrorism provided a vehicle that justified its use of aggressive proxy war and pursuit of regime change in Central America. U.S. policy with Nicaragua demonstrates the importance of terrorism to the development of a more aggressive United States in the post-Cold War world. This book examines the influence of the U.S.-Contra War in establishing a precedent for the use of overt pre-emptive force against sovereign nations in the name of counterterrorism. In the 21st century, the United States undertook a policy with the world based on a broad definition of self-defense that called for an array of actions that often violated traditional norms of international law and recognition of sovereign rights. This book demonstrates that the precedent for this change occurred in the late Cold War as the United States sought to respond to an escalation of global terrorism. The emergent problem of terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s transformed how and when the United States applied force in the world."

Nothing can go faster than the speed of light. But it seems the superfast, snazzy, chic, and hi-tech vehicles will soon outshine this adage. Fast, faster, fastest technological advancements in transportation have made mobility of people and goods easy, connecting the entire world and expanding world trade. It has steered globalization giving a boost to the wealth of nations.On the flipside, aircraft, ships, trucks, and trains powered by the combustion of fossil fuels, moving across the sky, oceans, and land have accelerated climate change, besides giving way to the problem of global energy crisis due to the huge demand and short supply of fossil fuels. So the world now aims at combining energy-efficient technologies with clean fuels to enjoy the benefits of vehicles while being sensitive to the environment. Hybrids, electric cars, and biofuels are some of the examples in this regard. However, there is still a long way to go.

Hunter-gatherer research has played a historically central role in the development of anthropological and evolutionary theory. Today, research in this traditional and enduringly vital field blurs lines of distinction between archaeology and ethnology, and seeks instead to develop perspectives and theories broadly applicable to anthropology and its many sub disciplines. In the groundbreaking first edition of Hunter-Gatherers: Archaeological and Evolutionary Theory (1991), Robert Bettinger presented an integrative perspective on hunter-gatherer research and advanced a theoretical approach compatible with both traditional anthropological and contemporary evolutionary theories. Hunter-Gatherers remains a well-respected and much-cited text, now over 20 years since initial publication. Yet, as in other vibrant fields of study, the last two decades have seen important empirical and theoretical advances.In this second edition of Hunter-Gatherers, co-authors Robert Bettinger, Raven Garvey, and Shannon Tushingham offer a revised and expanded version of the classic text, which includes a succinct and provocative critical synthesis of hunter-gatherer and evolutionary theory, from the Enlightenment to the present. New and expanded sections relate and react to recent developments some of them the authors own particularly in the realms of optimal foraging and cultural transmission theories. An exceptionally informative and ambitious volume on cultural evolutionary theory, Hunter-Gatherers, second edition, is an essential addition to the libraries of anthropologists, archaeologists, and human ecologists alike.

Steampunk is more than a fandom, a literary genre, or an aesthetic. It is a research methodology turning history inside out to search for alternatives to the progressive technological boosterism sold to us by Silicon Valley. This book turns to steampunk's quirky temporalities to embrace diverse genealogies of the digital humanities and to unite their methodologies with nineteenth-century literature and media archaeology. The result is nineteenth-century digital humanities, a retrofuturist approach in which readings of steampunk novels like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling's The Difference Engine andKen Liu's The Grace of Kings collide with nineteenth-century technological histories like Charles Babbage's use of the difference engine to enhance worker productivity and Isabella Bird Bishop's spirit photography of alternate history China. Along the way, Steampunk and Nineteenth-Century Digital Humanities considers steampunk as a public form of digital humanities scholarship and activism, examining projects like Kinetic Steam Works's reconstruction of Henri Giffard's 1852 steam-powered airship, Jake von Slatt's use of James Wimshurst's 1880 designs to create an electric influence machine, and the queer steampunk activism of fans appearing at conventions around the globe. Steampunk as a digital humanities practice of repurposing reacts to the growing sense of multiple non-human temporalities mediating our human histories: microtemporal electricities flowing through our computer circuits, mechanical oscillations marking our work days, geological stratifications and cosmic drifts extending time into the millions and billions of years. Excavating the entangled, anachronistic layers of steampunk practice from video games like Bioshock Infinite to marine trash floating off the shore of Los Angeles and repurposed by media artist Claudio Garz#65533;n into steampunk submarines, Steampunk and Nineteenth-Century Digital Humanities uncovers the various technological temporalities and multicultural retrofutures illuminating many alternate histories of the digital humanities.

At a time when a woman speaking before a mixed-gender audience risked acquiring the label "promiscuous," thousands of women presented their views about social or moral issues through sentimental poetry, a blend of affect with intellect that allowed their participation in public debate. Bridging literary and rhetorical histories, traditional and semiotic interpretations, Antebellum American Women's Poetry: A Rhetoric of Sentiment explores an often overlooked, yet significant and persuasive pre-Civil War American discourse. Considering the logos, ethos, and pathos--aims, writing personae, and audience appeal--of poems by African American abolitionist Frances Watkins Harper, working-class prophet Lydia Huntley Sigourney, and feminist socialite Julia Ward Howe, Wendy Dasler Johnson demonstrates that sentimental poetry was an inportant component of antebellum social activism. She articulates the ethos of the poems of Harper, who presents herself as a properly domestic black woman, nevertheless stepping boldly into Northern pulpits to insist slavery be abolished; the poetry of Sigourney, whose speaker is a feisty, working-class, ambiguously gendered prophet; and the works of Howe, who juggles her fame as the reformist "Battle Hymn" lyricist and motherhood of five children with an erotic Continental sentimentalism. Antebellum American Women's Poetry makes a strong case for restoration of a compelling system of persuasion through poetry usually dismissed from studies of rhetoric. This remarkable book will change the way we think about women's rhetoric in the nineteenth century, inviting readers to hear and respond to urgent, muffled appeals for justice in our own day.
