Ohio: The History of a People
78,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the state of Ohio prepares to celebrate its bicentennial in 2003, Andrew R. L.Cayton offers an account of ways in which diverse citizens have woven its history. Ohio: The History of a People centers around the many stories Ohioans have told about life in their state. The founders of Ohio in 1803 believed that its success would depend on the development of a public culture that emphasized what its citizens had in common with each other. But for two centuries, the remarkably diverse inhabitants of Ohio have repeatedly asserted their own ideas about how they and their children should lead their lives. The state's public culture has consisted of many voices, sometimes in conflict with each other. Using memoris, diaries, letters, novels, and paintings, Cayton writes Ohio's history as a collective biography of its citizens. Ohio, he argues, lies at the intersection of the stories of James Rhodes and Toni Morrison, Charles Ruthenberg and Lucy Webb Hayes, Carl Stokes and Alice Cary, Sherwood Anderson and Pete Rose. It lies in the tales of German Jews in Cincinnati, Italian and Polish immigrants in Cleveland, Southern blacks and white Appalachians in Youngstown. Ohio is the mingled voices of farm families, steelworkers, ministers, writers, schoolteachers, reformers, and football coaches. Ohio, in short, is whatever its citizens have imagined it to be.

Someplace Like America - Tales from the New Gre...
34,90 CHF *

“Someplace Like America is unrelenting prose, not poetry, but what the book lacks in intimacy it makes up for in breadth and persistence. There's something doggedly heroic in this commitment to one of journalism's least glamorous, least remunerative subjects.” –George Packer, The New Yorker “These boys saw the floorboards giving out while the rest of America danced in the pig and whistle. Maharidge and Williamson have a document here that may be even more important in a generation than it is today.”—Charlie LeDuff, author of Work and Other Sins: Life in New York City and Thereabouts “Through the voices and stories of working-class people, Maharidge and Williamson provide insight into the current situation, reminding us of the history of economic struggle and the importance of understanding our culture from the bottom up.” —John Russo, co-author of Steeltown U.S.A.: Work and Memory in Youngstown “This is a deeply felt and beautifully crafted book. Maharidge and Williamson are brave and clear-eyed in chronicling the struggle of America’s workers.” —Todd DePastino, author of Citizen Hobo: How a Century of Homelessness Shaped America 'In this moving and urgent book, Maharidge and Williamson continue to dig through the social wreckage of three decades of economic plunder, courageously documenting the uprooted and displaced, the uncertain and the fearful. Someplace Like America peers into the dark heart of a society that has turned its back on working people--and that may be on the cusp of abandoning its dignity as well. In the smoldering occupational ruins of what once was, Maharidge also manages to find hopeful embers of what might one day be. A disturbing retrospective on twenty-five years of reporting on the long-term dissolution of the American dream.' —Jefferson Cowie, Cornell University, author of Stayin' Alive: The 1970s and the Last Days of the Working Class

Your Sin Will Find You Out

A dream-come-true turns into a nightmare... When Frank Hollander moves his family from a small Illinois town to Milstot, a suburb of Chicago, it seems like a lifelong dream come true. They move into a beautiful old house, the boyhood home of Chicago's most powerful business mogul - Leonard Kingsley. While moving in Frank discovers a hidden room in the attic above the garage and in that room evidence of a terrible crime. Could it be connected to a thirty-year-old cold murder case? Frank, with the help of a local police detective and a new friend with CIA connections, starts poking around to solve the case. As the evidence piles up, could the police be closing in on the real killer? Or could there be more powerful forces at work pulling the strings? Even when wheels turn slowly God is in control... Even as Frank is trying to get his family settled into their new life, the horrible history of the house is revealed. Can God really use him to help right the wrongs done so long ago? All he can do is constantly be in prayer for the case to be solved and God's will to be done. Things aren't resolved as quickly or as simply as he'd like and it is in that realization that he learns that life is run on God's timetable - not his. Frank comes to have a deeper appreciation for just how much God loves us all - even those who commit terrible crimes against others. Jay Tepe lives in Joplin, Missouri-transplanted there in 1985 due to his second job in radio. Born in Youngstown, Ohio, he has lived in Cincinnati, Kansas City and St. Louis. Yep, his dad was a salesman! He is married with two college-age sons. He has been in broadcasting for over twenty-five years, both in radio and television. Jay fell in love with Jesus in 1984 and has enjoyed writing songs to glorify Him. This, however, is his first novel. He hopes to write many more!

History of Jewish Youngstown and the Steel Valley
16,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Founded in the Mahoning Valley during 1837, a tiny settlement of secular German immigrants grew into one of the most influential centers of Jewish life in the Midwest. Home to nationally renowned rabbis and Zionist firebrands alike, the community produced an astonishing array of leaders in an impressive range of fields throughout the twentieth century. This notable legacy ranges from the entertainment juggernaut of Warner Brothers to the Arby's fast-food empire and the prominent Youngstown Sheet & Tube, among many others. Authors Thomas Welsh, Joshua Foster and Gordon F. Morgan trace the unique history of one of Ohio's oldest Jewish communities from its humble beginnings into the challenging climate of the new millennium.
