Barefoot and Naked on the Banks of the Altamaha River

He stopped the interview, midway and said, "I am sorry — I do not mean to stare — you look like the actress on Will & Grace." I thought, "Geez, I have no idea if that is compliment or an insult." Evidently, my puzzlement showed.

Barefoot & Naked on the Banks of the Altamaha River rises and falls with joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, hope and despair. At times, it is governed by a smidgen of faith, other times, mustard seed faith. The stage is set in the deep-south in the era of black and white TVs, rotary phones, party lines, unlocked doors and windows. Small bottle cokes cost five cents, large ones six cents. There were Dime Stores instead of Dollar Stores. The scene is set in motion with a young girl living in an unspoiled world of love, laughter and friendships. The scene-scape moves and changes rapidly. As years pass, this perfect world is blemished by bitterness, anger, and hate as death, adultery, and sickness erode the spirit and cripple the soul. Amid the years were trials and tribulations, flights and fights, and storms that brewed, and, there were some deep shit bipolar times. This was the era of growing up, of love and laughter--the era of innocence. It was life at the highest and life at the lowest ebbs. From southern girl who is nurtured to southern matriarch who nurtures, it is a tale spawning from first light to midnight. It is the eve of a new dawn.

The new edition of this landmark volume emphasizes the dynamic, interactional, and reflexive dimensions of the research interview. Contributors highlight the myriad dimensions of complexity that are emerging as researchers increasingly frame the interview as a communicative opportunity as much as a data-gathering format. The book begins with the history and conceptual transformations of the interview, which is followed by chapters that discuss the main components of interview practice. Taken together, the contributions to The SAGE Handbook of Interview Research: The Complexity of the Craft encourage readers simultaneously to learn the frameworks and technologies of interviewing and to reflect on the epistemological foundations of the interview craft.

Through lengthy interviews and observation of family relationships, this book investigates how the histories of those involved in the Holocaust (as both victims and perpetrators) impact, socially and psychologically, on the lives of the second and third generation. Five case studies of survivors' families from Germany and Israel present different experiences of persecution, and demonstrate to what extent the past defines post-War family dynamics. Two case studies of non-Jewish German families where the grandparents' generation are suspected of having perpetrated Nazi crimes show how guilt, and the myth of themselves being victims, are pressed on to the succeeding generations.

NAKED AT THE MIC / The Survival of a Liberal in a Time of Peril, is a book based upon10 years of exhaustive research and personal experiences , collected in an autobiographical and historical, account of the national and international politics, and the national , social upheaval during the Conservative Revolution. That political movement of Bush Fascism during the first decade of the 21st Century, as I witnessed and reported it on my television and radio programs, and my website www.lasteelshow.org during the years of 2000 to 2009. Naked at the Mic is also a public compliment, to the many people who fought valiantly to print and broadcast truth, and liberal commentary, while the entire broadcast media was dominated and censored of Liberal Thought, by the Conservative right wing media, the G.W Bush administration, and the cabal of Muslim hating warmongers, famously known as the NeoCons. Naked at the Mic also commemorates the many heroic members of activist and citizen action groups and organizations , that fight daily to protect themselves and their country from the insanity of G.W Bushs administration, and his minions, and their nightmare reality of war , genocide and slaughter in the Middle East, and the cruel, corrupt and oppressive, government they imposed on the American people during their reign of terror and torture from 2000 to 2008. I speak honestly about the 2008 presidential candidates and the election of Barack Obama, and why I voted for him, and my great disappointment, after his horrific betrayal of all who elected him. The research for Naked at the Mic entailed over 5000 news articles that I have personally archived and preserved on paper, to verify every quote and reference I make, and over 100 books and over 500 recorded interviews with authors, activists and politicians on 550 archived radio shows, ten televised documentaries , and 400 television programs I had produced up to 2009, when I completed this book. Naked at the Mic , is an honest look back through time at people and events, that have been at the forefront of national and world changing events. This book is a historical record of one of the most volatile decades in American and world history. It reports and comments on many of the most important national and international issues from 2000 to 2009. I discuss in detail the corrupt 2000 presidential election, 911, the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions, Katrina, and expose the massive corporate, financial and political corruption and mass media cover ups, until the end of 2009. I honestly expose left and right wing politics, and give a unique front line perspective of the massive sea change of American Society, that caused G.W Bushs 75 percent approval rating in 2001, to his final approval rating of 24% in 2008. Naked at the Mic / The Survival of a Liberal in a Time of Peril, is honest, fast moving, highly informative and well researched, and is an accurate, historical account of the characters involved with one of the longest running liberal radio shows in America during one of the most politically conservative, and most destructive periods in American history, that has led to the current economic, military and moral demise of America. Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated in his essay The Oversoul Oh, Believe that every word that was meant for thine ear to hear will come to thee. I believe a lot of people are meant to hear what this book has to say. L.A.Steel

This book takes an explicitly feminist approach to studying gender and social inequalities in island settings while deliberating on ‘islandness’ as part of the intersectional analysis. Though there is a wealth of recent literature on islands and island studies, most of this literature focuses on islands as objects of study rather than as contexts for exploring gender relations and local gendered developments. Taking Karides’ ‘Island feminism’ as a starting point and drawing from the wider literature on island studies as well as gender and place, this book bridges this gap by exploring gender, gender relations, affect and politics in various island settings spanning a great variety of global locations, from the Faroe Islands and Greenland in the north to Tasmania in south. Insights on recent developments and gendered contestations in these locations provide rich food for thought on the intricate links between gender and place in a local/global world. This text will be of key interest to students and scholars of gender and feminist studies, cultural studies, Island studies, anthropology, and more broadly to sociology, geography, diversity and social justice studies, global democracy, and international relations.

Wallace delights in leftfield observation, mining the ironic, the surprising and the illuminating from every situation. His new collection will delight his growing number of fans, and provide a perfect introduction for new readers.

This landmark presentation at last makes heard the centuries of Zen's female voices. Through exploring the teachings and history of Zen's female ancestors, from the time of the Buddha to ancient and modern female masters in China, Korea, and Japan, Grace Schireson offers us a view of a more balanced Dharma practice, one that is especially applicable to our complex lives, embedded as they are in webs of family relations and responsibilities, and the challenges of love and work. Part I of this book describes female practitioners as they are portrayed in the classic literature of "Patriarchs' Zen"--often as "tea-ladies," bit players in the drama of male students' enlightenments; as "iron maidens," tough-as-nails women always jousting with their male counterparts; or women who themselves become "macho masters," teaching the same Patriarchs' Zen as the men do. Part II of this book presents a different view--a view of how women Zen masters entered Zen practice and how they embodied and taught Zen uniquely as women. This section examines many urgent and illuminating questions about our Zen grandmothers: How did it affect them to be taught by men? What did they feel as they trying to fit into this male practice environment, and how did their Zen training help them with their feelings? How did their lives and relationships differ from that of their male teachers? How did they express the Dharma in their own way for other female students? How was their teaching consistently different from that of male ancestors? And then part III explores how women's practice provides flexible and pragmatic solutions to issues arising in contemporary Western Zen centers.

Forensic linguistics, or the study of language and the law, is a growing field of scholarly and public interest with an established research presence. The Discourse of Police Interviews aims to further the discussion by analyzing how police interviews are constructed and used to investigate and prosecute crimes. The first book to focus exclusively on the discourses of police interviewing, The Discourse of Police Interviews examines leading debates, approaches, and topics in contemporary police interview research. Among other topics, the book explores the sociolegal, psychological, and discursive framework of popular police interview techniques employed in the United States and the United Kingdom, such as PEACE and Reid, and the discursive practices of institutional representatives like police officers and interpreters that can influence the construction and quality of linguistic evidence. Together, the contributions situate the police interview as part of a complex, and multistage, criminal justice process. The book will be of interest to both scholars and practitioners in a variety of fields, such as linguistic anthropology, interpreting studies, criminology, law, and sociology.

A “sharp-eyed look at the complexities of war” (Parade), that explores the inner workings of the Human Terrain System, a Pentagon program that sends civilian social scientists into war zones to help soldiers understand local culture. On the day Barack Obama was elected president in November 2008, a small group of American civilians took their optimism and experience to a village west of Kandahar, Afghanistan. They were part of the Pentagon’s controversial attempt to bring social science to the battlefield, driven by the notion that you can’t win a war if you don’t understand the enemy and his culture. The field team in Afghanistan that day included an intrepid Texas blonde, a former bodyguard for Afghan president Hamid Karzai, and an ex-military intelligence sergeant who had come to Afghanistan to make peace with his troubled past. But not all goes as planned. In this tale of moral suspense, journalist Vanessa Gezari follows these three idealists from the hope that brought them to Afghanistan through the events of the fateful day when one is gravely wounded, an Afghan is dead, and a proponent of cross-cultural engagement is charged with his murder. Through it all, these brave Americans ended up showing the world just how determined they were to get things right, how hard it was to really understand a place like Afghanistan where storytelling has been a major tool of survival, and why all future wars will involve this strange mix of fighting and listening. Vanessa Gezari is the only journalist to have gained access to the lives of people inside this troubled Army program, including the brilliant, ambitious figures who conceived it. This true story of war and sacrifice will upend your ideas about what really went wrong in Afghanistan.
