The Nature of Home

A Lexicon and Essays

Author: Lisa Knopp

Publisher: U of Nebraska Press

ISBN: 9780803278141

Category: Literary Collections

For Lisa Knopp, homesickness is a literal sickness. During a lengthy sojourn away from the Nebraska prairie, she fell ill, and only when she decided to return home didøshe recover. Homesickness is the triggering event for this collection of essays concerned with nothing less than what it means to feel at home. Knopp writes masterfully about ecology, place, and the values and beliefs that sustain the individual within an impersonal world. She is passionate about her subject whether it be an endangered beetle in the salt marshes near Lincoln, Nebraska, a forgotten Nebraska inventor, a museum muralist, a paleontologist, or Arbor Day as the misguided attempt of Eastern settlers to ?correct? a perceived deficiency in the Great Plains landscape. Here is a writer who has read widely and judiciously and for whom everything resonates within the intricately structured definition of home.

War Time

An Idea, Its History, Its Consequences

Author: Mary L. Dudziak

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199913471

Category: History

Page: 232

On the surface, "wartime" is a period of time in which a society is at war. But we now live in what President Obama has called "an age without surrender ceremonies," where it is no longer easy to distinguish between times of war and times of peace. In this inventive meditation on war, time, and the law, Mary Dudziak argues that wartime is not as discrete a time period as we like to think. Instead, America has been engaged in some form of ongoing overseas armed conflict for over a century. Meanwhile policy makers and the American public continue to view wars as exceptional events that eventually give way to normal peace times. This has two consequences: first, because war is thought to be exceptional, "wartime" remains a shorthand argument justifying extreme actions like torture and detention without trial; and second, ongoing warfare is enabled by the inattention of the American people. More disconnected than ever from the wars their nation is fighting, public disengagement leaves us without political restraints on the exercise of American war powers.

Lillian, die in einem kleinen Nest in Vermont lebt, fühlt sich von einem undurchsichtigen Typen namens Blackway verfolgt. Eines Morgens liegt ihre Katze tot vor der Tür. Ermordet von Blackway, davon ist sie überzeugt. Der Sheriff kann nichts für sie tun, daher sucht sie Hilfe bei einem Club kauziger alter Männer. Beeindruckt von ihrem Mut, stellen diese ihr den betagten Lester und den hünenhaften, etwas beschränkten Nate als Schutz zur Seite. Lillian traut den beiden nichts zu, aber sie lassen sich nicht abwimmeln und so verfolgen sie Blackway schließlich gemeinsam. Dieser Thriller besticht durch seinen schrägen Humor und seine ungleichen Helden. Ein Meisterstück – dicht, intensiv und leuchtend!
