Download and read online Geschichte der USA in PDF and EPUB Zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts sind die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika die einzig verbliebene Supermacht in einer zunehmend unübersichtlichen Welt. Das Buch behandelt die Etappen des Aufstiegs zur Weltmacht und fächert die faszinierend vielschichtige Geschichte der USA entlang von thematischen Grundlinien auf. Am Anfang steht das Experiment in Sachen Demokratie, das revolutionär begründet und bis heute nicht abgeschlossen ist. Ebenso wenig geradlinig entwickeln sich die USA zur Supermacht und zum Hegemon der Welt, ein Aufstieg, der im Zeichen des "Empires of Liberty" auch missionarische Züge aufweist. Wie aus der nordamerikanischen Kontaktzone unterschiedlichster Kulturen und Ethnien neue dezidiert amerikanische Wertideen und ein moderner konsumorientierter, technologiegesättigter Lebensstil, der "American Way of Life", hervorgingen, die keineswegs den bestehenden ethnisch-kulturellen Pluralismus der Gesellschaft einebneten, bildet einen weiteren Schwerpunkt der Darstellung. Über die Themenachsen Politik, Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Kultur entfaltet der Band die Entwicklungslinien der Geschichte der USA, die auf vielen Feldern für unsere moderne Welt wegweisend war und ist.

They all argue for seeing popular audiences as active creators rather than passive receivers of popular culture.

Download and read online Beyond Nature s Housekeepers in PDF and EPUB From pre-Columbian times to the environmental justice movements of the present, women and men frequently responded to the environment and environmental issues in profoundly different ways. Although both environmental history and women's history are flourishing fields, explorations of the synergy produced by the interplay between environment and sex, sexuality, and gender are just beginning. Offering more than biographies of great women in environmental history, Beyond Nature's Housekeepers examines the intersections that shaped women's unique environmental concerns and activism and that framed the way the larger culture responded. Women featured include Native Americans, colonists, enslaved field workers, pioneers, homemakers, municipal housekeepers, immigrants, hunters, nature writers, soil conservationists, scientists, migrant laborers, nuclear protestors, and environmental justice activists. As women, they fared, thought, and acted in ways complicated by social, political, and economic norms, as well as issues of sexuality and childbearing. Nancy C. Unger reveals how women have played a unique role, for better and sometimes for worse, in the shaping of the American environment.

Download and read online The Columbia Guide to American Environmental History in PDF and EPUB How and why have Americans living at particular times and places used and transformed their environment? How have political systems dealt with conflicts over resources and conservation? This is the only major reference work to explore all the major themes and debates of the burgeoning field of environmental history. Humanity´s relationship with the natural world is one of the oldest and newest topics in human history. The issue emerged as a distinct field of scholarship in the early 1970s and has been growing steadily ever since. The discipline´s territory and sources are rich and varied and include climactic and geological data, court records, archaeological digs, and the writings of naturalists, as well as federal and state economic and resource development and conservation policy. Environmental historians investigate how and why natural and human-created surroundings affect a society´s development. Merchant provides a context-setting overview of American environmental history from the beginning of the millennium; an encyclopedia of important concepts, people, agencies, and laws; a chronology of major events; and an extensive bibliography including films, videos, CD-Roms, and websites. This concise "first stop" reference for students and general readers contains an accessible overview of environmental history; a mini-encyclopedia of ideas, people, legislation, and agencies; a chronology of events and their significance; and a bibliography of books, magazines, and journals as well as films, videos, CD-ROMs, and online resources. In addition to providing a wealth of factual information, The Columbia Guide to American Environmental History explores contentious issues in this much-debated field, from the idea of wilderness to global warming.
