Download or read book Runaway Slave Settlements in Cuba written by Gabino La Rosa Corzo and published by UNC Press Books. This book was released on 2004-07-21 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Combining archaeological and historical methods, Gabino La Rosa Corzo provides the most detailed and accurate available account of the runaway slave settlements (palenques) that formed in the inaccessible mountain chains of eastern Cuba from 1737 to 1850, decades before the end of slavery on the island. The traces that remain of these communities provide important clues to historical processes such as slave resistance and emancipation, anticolonial insurgency, and the emergence of a free peasantry. Some of the communities developed into thriving towns that still exist today. La Rosa challenges the claims of previous scholars and demonstrates how romanticized the communities have become in historical memory. In part by using detailed maps drawn on site, La Rosa shows that palenques were smaller and fewer in number than previously thought and they contained mostly local, rather than long-distance, fugitives. In addition, the residents were less aggressive and violent than myth holds, often preferring to flee rather than fight a system of oppression that was even more effective and organized than generally supposed. La Rosa's study illuminates many social and economic issues related to the African diaspora in the Caribbean, with particular focus on slavery, resistance, and independence. This translation makes the book available in English for the first time.
Download or read book Finding Runaways and Missing Adults written by Robert L. Snow and published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. This book was released on 2012-03-29 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Every year in the US, almost two million children run away from home. In addition, on the average, the police in our country have at any one time over 100,000 active missing-adult cases. This book will show readers how, with just a little advance preparation and insight, they can greatly increase their chances of finding a missing loved one, even after police have stopped actively looking. With sensationalized child disappearances, teenagers vanishing, and adults faking their own deaths, the challenge of finding missing persons often falls most directly on those who love them. And though in past years this involved a considerable amount of footwork, that is no longer the case. With the advent of the Internet and the many new search engines available, much of the searching and canvassing can now be done from computers. Family members and friends looking for missing loved ones need to know what programs and databases to access, though, to get the search under way. Snow, reveals to readers the process the police use when trying to locate missing people of interest, information that readers can then use to locate their own missing loved ones. Using real stories and first hand accounts, the author offers hope and guidance to those who may have given up the search for a child, a spouse, a parent, or a friend.

Download or read book With General Chennault written by Cpt. Robert B. Hotz and published by Pickle Partners Publishing. This book was released on 2018-09-03 with total page 273 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: General Claire Lee Chennault (1890-1958) was both a pioneer and a genius when it came to the development of fighter tactics. In the period between the World Wars, American aviation thinking had emphasized bombers and bomber doctrine, while the development of a fighter force and fighter tactics was downplayed. General Chennault was one of the few who perceived the potential of the fighter. Claire Chennault was a veteran pilot of the First World War, having served in the 19th Pursuit Squadron. Later he became a member of a famous Army flying acrobatic team, and also served as the Army’s chief of fighter training. Because of a hearing problem, he retired from the Army Air Force in 1937. In early 1941, he recruited a group of American fliers to fly for the Chinese in their struggle with the invading Japanese. This group was officially known as the American Volunteer Group (the AVG), but soon became legendary as The Flying Tigers—a name given to them by the Chinese. Between the periods of 20 December 1941 and 4 July 1942, The Flying Tigers demonstrated innovative tactical victories when the news in the U.S. was filled with little more than stories of defeat at the hands of the Japanese forces, and, during the lowest period of the war for both the U.S. and the Allied Forces, gave hope to America that it might eventually defeat the Japanese...

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Republic Pictures Corporation, began as a motion picture laboratory in 1915. By 1935, Republic had become a studio and released its first movie, Westward Ho! starring a young John Wayne, who would stay with Republic for the next 17 years. Republic would go on to produce highly successful Westerns starring singing cowboys Gene Autry and Roy Rogers as well as serial adventure series. The studio cranked out so many exciting (not to mention money-making) serials that it became known as “The Thrill Factory.” Occasionally, Republic would produce and distribute “A” features, such as Macbeth and The Quiet Man, but it was the “B” Westerns and adventure serials that they knew best how to produce and market. Until its demise in 1959, Republic fed hungry moviegoers with a steady diet of “B” Westerns, serials, dramas, series pictures and musicals. The Republic Pictures Checklist provides a full listing of Republic releases, with plot synopses, release dates, alternate titles, chapter titles and awards. All of Republic’s output, including documentaries and training films, is included.
Download or read book The Destiny of Humanity written by L Zhang Ph.D. and published by Archway Publishing. This book was released on 2022-07-10 with total page 98 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In recent years, humanity has experienced dramatic advances in medicine, science, and technology. But we also face unprecedented challenges, including deadly conflicts, major disasters, and even global pandemics. Importantly, the modern human experience has demonstrated the awesome power of scientific principles to dramatically improve health and extend life. We’ve also created the internet along with powerful computers, mobile devices, and robots. It is therefore worth exploring the idea that these scientific principles may also help humanity to overcome these unprecedented challenges facing humanity. By analyzing major scientific principles of chemistry, biology, physics, and statistics, we can apply their relevance to human traits, the interaction between humans and nature, and the interaction among humans. The Destiny of Humanity crystallizes a unifying moral compass that is compatible with advanced science and technology to guide the application of powerful emerging technologies. It aims to elicit a new way of thinking about the grave challenges facing humanity.

Download or read book Capitalism Crime and Media in the 21st Century written by Neil Ewen and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021-04-15 with total page 235 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This edited collection from leading scholars in the fields of media, communications, cultural studies and a number of aligned areas looks to the intersection of capitalism, crime and the media. The text is founded on the principles of cultural criminology – that how we determine and understand crime lies in the social world and that the determination of crime and its mediation in popular culture have a political basis. The book consists of eleven chapters and is divided into three sections. Section one considers the intersection of crime and capitalism in a range of contemporary cultural texts. Section two examines how various power systems influence the operation of the media in its role of reporting crime and holding the powerful to account. Section three considers how texts in a variety of formats are used to conduct politics, communicate politics and enact political decision making.
Download or read book Freedom Seekers written by Damian Alan Pargas and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2021-11-18 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this fascinating book, Damian Alan Pargas introduces a new conceptualization of 'spaces of freedom' for fugitive slaves in North America between 1800 and 1860, and answers the questions: How and why did enslaved people flee to – and navigate – different destinations throughout the continent, and to what extent did they succeed in evading recapture and re-enslavement? Taking a continental approach, this study highlights the diversity of slave fight by conceptually dividing the continent into three distinct – and continuously evolving – spaces of freedom. Namely, spaces of informal freedom in the US South, where enslaved people attempted to flee by passing as free blacks; spaces of semi-formal freedom in the US North, where slavery was abolished but the precise status of fugitive slaves was contested; and spaces of formal freedom in Canada and Mexico, where slavery was abolished and runaways were considered legally free and safe from re-enslavement.

Author Gary Phillips knows how to pile on the action. This is definitely a homage to the spin rack novels of the 1970s.” — Timothy Mayer, Z7’s Headquarters The Anti-Gravity Steal: “Mr. Phillips has taken the men’s action adventure pulp genre of the thirties adding 21st century sensibilities and amping the energy level to 11.
