Women and Humor in Classical Greece examines the role of women as producers of joking speech, especially within cults of Demeter. This speech, sometimes known as aischrologia, had considerable weight and vitality within its cultic context. It also shaped literary traditions, notably iambic and Attic old comedy that has traditionally been regarded as entirely male. The misogyny for which ancient iambic is infamous derives in part from an oral world in which women's derisive joking voices reverberated. O'Higgins considers this speech from its mythical origins in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, through the reactive iambic tradition and into old comedy. She also examines the poems of Sappho and Corinna as literary jokers, responding in part to their own experience of joking women. The book concludes with a fresh appraisal of the three great 'women's' plays of Aristophanes: Lysistrata, Thesmophoriasouzae, and Ecclesiazousae.
From the War of 1812 to the end of the nineteenth century, U.S. Army officers were instrumental in shaping the American West. They helped explore uncharted places and survey and engineer its far-flung transportation arteries. Many also served in the ferocious campaigns that drove American Indians onto reservations. Soldiers West views the turbulent history of the West from the perspective of fifteen senior army officers--including Philip H. Sheridan, George Armstrong Custer, and Nelson A. Miles--who were assigned to bring order to the region.
This revised edition of Paul Andrew Hutton's popular work adds five new biographies, and essays from the first edition have been updated to incorporate recent scholarship. New portraits of Stephen W. Kearny, Philip St. George Cooke, and James H. Carleton expand the volume's coverage of the army on the antebellum frontier. Other new pieces focus on the controversial John M. Chivington, who commanded the Colorado volunteers at the Sand Creek Massacre in 1863, and Oliver O. Howard, who participated in federal and private initiatives to reform Indian policy in the West. An introduction by Durwood Ball discusses the vigorous growth of frontier military history since the original publication of Soldiers West.

Even as a pup, Davy Crockett "always delighted to be in the very thickest of danger." In his own inimitable style, he describes his earliest days in Tennessee, his two marriages, his career as an Indian fighter, his bear hunts, and his electioneering. His reputation as a b'ar hunter (he killed 105 in one season) sent him to Congress, and he was voted in and out as the price of cotton (and his relations with the Jacksonians) rose and fell. In 1834, when this autobiography appeared, Davy Crockett was already a folk hero with an eye on the White House. But a year later he would lose his seat in Congress and turn toward Texas and, ultimately, the Alamo.
Benedict Cumberbatch stars in the title role of this made-for-television docudrama about the life of prolific artist Vincent Van Gogh. With narration by Alan Yentob and direct-to-camera speech delivery from Cumberbatch as Van Gogh, the true words of the artist himself are spoken, sourced from the letters that he wrote to his brother Theo (Jamie Parker).
Chiefly known for his exploits in the Indian Wars, most significantly for his horrific defeat at the Little Bighorn in 1876, George Armstrong Custer found initial success on the battlefields of the Civil War, leading his Michigan Cavalry Brigade in more than sixty battles and skirmishes. The men were affectionately called "Custer's Wolverines" and among them was James Kidd, a newspaperman by training. Kidd wrote a series of letters to friends and family back home between 1862 and 1865, chronicling the conditions and experiences of life in the field of battle. Kidd's letters have been combined into this historical memoir, which tell a moving story of wartime service and shed a light onto the gallant and often brash Custer. Personal Recollections of a Cavalryman with Custer's Michigan Cavalry Brigade in the Civil War has been hailed as one of the richest, most reliable accounts of Union cavalry operations in the Eastern theater of the Civil War, ranging from the raid on Richmond to Appomattox. Kidd provides enriching details about encounters with JEB Stuart's cavalry, Gettysburg, his admiration for Custer and other generals he knew, such as Sheridan and Grant. This new edition of a timeless classic includes a rare photo insert, as well as an insightful introduction by Paul Andrew Hutton that places Kidd's work in its historical perspective.
The enduring fascination of the American West marks this collection of essays by distinguished historians, investigative reporters, a novelist, and a celebrated screenwriter. All of these articles have won Wrangler Awards--the western equivalent of the Oscars--presented annually by the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
Exciting storytelling, a hallmark of western writing, shapes every selection. C. L. Sonnichsen's 1986 revisionist account of Geronimo's life foreshadows the work of younger historians who continue to deepen our understanding of American Indian history. Jeffrey Pearson's story of the death of Crazy Horse and Greg Michno's novelistic rendering of the Lakota view of the Battle of the Little Bighorn represent history as practiced by scholars who are also powerful writers.
Journalist-screenwriter William Broyles's narrative of the King family and ranch is a Texas saga as captivating as anything by Larry McMurtry. The renowned novelist Oakley Hall writes with a historian's precision about Wyoming, setting for "The Virginian" and site of the Teapot Dome scandal and the Johnson County range war. Focusing on Charles M. Russell, Raphael Cristy establishes the western artist's importance as a writer who overturned stereotypes about American Indians.
Environmental studies are showcased in Dan Flores's essays on the demise of the great buffalo herds and the history of the horse trade. And no overview of the West would be complete without military and law enforcement history, amply represented by Robert M. Utley's work on the Texas Rangers, Paul Hutton's panoramic recounting of the Alamo, and Sally Denton's new look at the controversial Mountain Meadows Massacre, incorporating the latest forensic evidence. In what serves as a fitting coda to the violent yet inspiring history of the American West, Hutton offers a stirring account of Teddy Roosevelt's leadership at the Battle of San Juan Hill.
This is a collection as pleasurable to read as it is rich with great and significant stories about one of the most enduring national epochs--the history of the great American West.
George Armstrong Custer, America's most famously unfortunate soldier, has been the subject of scores of books, but "The Custer Reader" is unique as a substantial source of classic writings about and by him. Here is Custer as seen by himself, his contemporaries, and leading scholars. Even those steeped in Custeriana will discover new insights in these pieces. Combining first-person narratives, essays, and photographs, this book provides a complete introduction to Custer's controversial personality and career and the evolution of the Custer myth.
"Paul Hutton's study of Phil Sheridan in the West is authoritative, readable, and an important contribution to the literature of westward expansion. Although headquartered in Chicago, Sheridan played a crucial role in the opening of the West. His command stretched from the Missouri to the Rockies and from Mexico to Canada, and all the Indian Wars of the Great Plains fell under his direction. Hutton ably narrates and interprets Sheridan's western career from the perspective of the top command rather than the battlefield leader. His book is good history and good reading."-Robert M. Utley
"Frederic F. Van de Water has written the Custer book to end all Custer books. . . . It is] based upon profound research . . . and a] thorough understanding of the motivations which shaped Custer's meteoric career."--Books."Mr. Van de Water has accumulated evidence until it can hardly be questioned. There is enough of it to damn the man as hard cruel, and irresponsible. . . . At any rate, the story has an epic movement, and at last is heart-stirring and somberly beautiful."--New York Times."General Custer was a tangle of contradictions. His wife 'enshrined her husband in the folklore of America.' Now Mr. Van de Water, without fear or favor, gives us a complete and unsparing analysis of the man."--William Rose Benet, Saturday Review of Literature. "All his life, he rode after Glory," writers Frederic F. Van de Water of George Armstrong Custer. Ironically, he found it at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. In his introduction to this edition, Paul Andrew Hutton considers the importance of Glory-Hunter, which appeared in 1934 as the first biography to depict Custer in unheroic terms. Hutton, a professor of history at the University of New Mexico, is the author of the prize-winning Phil Sheridan and His Army (UNP, 1985).
This will be like a dictionary but with medical terms arranged according to body systems and medical topics. These could be arranged around the chapters of the main text of Hutton, but with more entries. Each section will have quick reference boxes so it will be possible to look up a medical term from its common name and vice versa. The sections should be coded with the page number at the side for speed of location. Small, "pocket guide" format is convenient and easy to use in any setting. Numerous features promote easy referencing of information, including page numbers and quick reference boxes. Medical terminology definitions and content is relevant to all areas of health care.
SRF Technology based accelerators, FEL's, and ERL's, are becoming common worldwide. Several new frontier technologies and applications are expected to be evolving in coming years as the cost of SRF technology comes. Terra Hertz (THz) Science could benefit from these advances, and many applications are likely to be developed in the fields of medical imaging, material science, pharmaceuticals, communications etc.
