In this landmark book, Nancy Isenberg argues that the voters who boosted Trump all the way to the White House have been a permanent part of the American fabric, and reveals how the wretched and landless poor have existed from the time of the earliest British colonial settlements to today's hillbillies. Poor whites were central to the rise of the Republican Party in the early nineteenth century and the Civil War itself was fought over class issues nearly as much as it was fought over slavery. Reconstruction pitted white trash against newly freed slaves, which factored in the rise of eugenics - a widely popular movement embraced by Theodore Roosevelt that targeted poor whites for sterilization. These poor were at the heart of New Deal reforms and Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society; they are now offered up as entertainment in reality TV shows, and the label is applied to celebrities ranging from Dolly Parton to Bill Clinton. Marginalized as a class, white trash have always been at or near the centre of major political debates over the character of the American identity. Surveying political rhetoric and policy, popular literature and scientific theories over four hundred years, Isenberg upends assumptions about America's supposedly class-free society - where liberty and hard work were meant to ensure real social mobility - and forces a nation to face the truth about the enduring, malevolent nature of class.

Throughout its history, America has prided itself on the American Dream, where a person, regardless of class, can be whomever they want. But is social mobility a true ingredient of US society, or is it just American idealism at its best? Isenberg suggests the latter as she traces the history of the country from the first English settlements, through the Civil War, and up to present-day pop culture, examining the origins of the language and attitudes that have defined poor, white Americans for centuries. As Donald Trump moved in to the White House thanks, in part, to a vocal contingent of poor, white supporters, White Trash’s detailed history offers insight to how the new president curried the favor of this large, often overlooked population, and how they might fare under his leadership. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

From the author of White Trash, a controversial challenge to the views of the Founding Fathers offered by Ron Chernow and David McCullough Lin-Manuel Miranda's play "Hamilton" has reignited interest in the founding fathers; and it features Aaron Burr among its vibrant cast of characters. With Fallen Founder, Nancy Isenberg plumbs rare and obscure sources to shed new light on everyone's favorite founding villain. The Aaron Burr whom we meet through Isenberg's eye-opening biography is a feminist, an Enlightenment figure on par with Jefferson, a patriot, and—most importantly—a man with powerful enemies in an age of vitriolic political fighting. Revealing the gritty reality of eighteenth-century America, Fallen Founder is the authoritative restoration of a figure who ran afoul of history and a much-needed antidote to the hagiography of the revolutionary era.

Questioning Bodies in Shakespeare s Rome

Ancient Rome has always been considered a compendium of City and World. In the Renaissance, an era of epistemic fractures, when the clash between the 'new science' (Copernicus, Galileo, Vesalius, Bacon, etcetera) and the authority of ancient texts produced the very notion of modernity, the extended and expanding geography of ancient Rome becomes, for Shakespeare and the Elizabethans, a privileged arena in which to question the nature of bodies and the place they hold in a changing order of the universe. Drawing on the rich scenario provided by Shakespeare's Rome, and adopting an interdisciplinary perspective, the authors of this volume address the way in which the different bodies of the earthly and heavenly spheres are re-mapped in Shakespeare's time and in early modern European culture. More precisely, they investigate the way bodies are fashioned to suit or deconstruct a culturally articulated system of analogies between earth and heaven, microcosm and macrocosm. As a whole, this collection brings to the fore a wide range of issues connected to the Renaissance re-mapping of the world and the human. It should interest not only Shakespeare scholars but all those working on the interaction between sciences and humanities.

Kaptan Larsenin Dünya Görüşü: "İnsan hayatını demek istiyorsun. Ama yediğin balık ya da hayvan etlerinin insanınkinden hiç bir farkı yok. Böylesine ucuz ve değersizolan bir hayat için neden hasisce davranayım? Yeryüzünde gemilerden çok daha fazla denizci, fabrikalardan ve makinalardan çok daha fazla işçi var. Neden siz, karadayaşayan insanlar, zavallı insanlarınızı, kentlerinizin kenar mahallelerinde sefil sokaklarınızda barındırıyorsunuz?... Neden bütün hastalıkları ve açlığı onların üstüneyığıyorsunuz?... Bir parça iş için vahşi hayvanlar gibi döğüşen insanlar gördün mü hiç hayatında?..."

In this tribute to teachers everywhere. McCourt records the trials, triumphs and surprises he faces in public high schools around New York City. His methods anything but conventional, McCourt creates a lasting impact on his students through imaginative assignments, singalongs and field trips. As he struggles to find his way in the classroom, he spends his evenings drinking with writers and dreaming of one day putting his own story to paper. The book shows McCourt developing his ability to tell a great story as he works to gain the attention and respect of unruly or indifferent adolescents. His rocky marriage, his failed attempt to get a Ph.D. at Trinity College, Dublin, and his repeated firings due to his propensity to talk back to his superiors ironically lead him to New York's most prestigious school, Stuyvesant High School, where he finally finds a place and a voice.--From publisher description.

"Gayet iyi biliyorum ki o sandala atladım." Patna gemisinin ikinci kaptanı Jim, kahraman olmayı düşleyen bir gençtir. Ama Patna batma tehlikesiyle karşı karşıya kalınca Jim korkar ve kahramanlık hayallerini bırakıp gemiden atlar. Soruşturma sonucunda kaptanlıktan men cezası alır; ama asıl ceza kendi yüreğinde ve kafasında şekillenir. Denizciliğin yazılı olmayan ahlak yasasına göre "gemiyi en son kaptan terk eder" kuralını çiğnediği için ömür boyu sürecek bir utancın ve suçluluk duygusunun yükü altında ezilen Jim, sonunda Malaya yakınlarındaki Patusan ülkesine kaçar ve oradaki halkın çıkarlarını savunduğu için yerli dilinde "Lord" anlamına gelen "Tuan" unvanını kazanır. Halkın saygısının yanı sıra Mücevher adındaki melez bir kadının aşkını da kazanarak huzura kavuşur. Ne var ki her şey bu kadarla bitmez. Conrad, Patna olayını anlatırken, 1880 yılında Penang'dan Cidde'ye yaklaşık bin Malayalı hacı adayını taşıyan S.S. Cidde gemisinin geçirdiği kazadan esinlendi. Biçem ne olursa olsun, tema Conrad'ın şu yaklaşımını yansıtır: "Kitaplarımı okuyanlar bilmelidir ki, dünyanın dağlar, tepeler kadar eski olan basit fikirler, en çok da sadakat fikri temeline oturduğuna inanırım." Sadakati, insanın hiçliğe, yozlaşmaya, çevresini kuşatan, bazen de farkına varmadığı kendi içindeki kötülüklere karşı oluşturduğu bir savunma engeli olarak yorumlayan Conrad, bu engel yıkılırsa insanın dışındaki kötülükle içindeki kötülüğün karşılaşması nereye varır sorusunu yapıtında şiirsel bir anlatımla irdeliyor.
