Land Degradation: Creation and Destruction - Livres de poche

2015, ISBN: 9780742519473

Edition reliée, ID: 236996308

University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2008. Softcover. Brand new book. While predominantly agrarian, Kansas has a surprisingly rich heritage of labor history and played an active role in the major labor strife of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Farmers vs. Wage Earners is a survey of the organized labor movement in the Sunflower State, which reflected in a microcosm the evolution of attitudes toward labor in the United States. R. Alton Lee emphasizes the social and political developments of labor in Kansas and what it was like to work in the mines, the oil fields, and the factories that created the modern industrial world. He vividly describes the stories of working people: how they and their families lived and worked, their dreams and aspirations, their reasons for joining a union and how it served their interests, how they fought to achieve their goals through the political process, and how employment changed over the decades in terms of race, gender, and working conditions. The general public supported labor after the Civil War, but increasing urbanization and the farmer-dominated legislatures helped quell this sympathy, and new ire was eventually directed at the workingman. By examining the progress of industrial labor in an agrarian state, Lee shows how Kansans, like many Americans, could eagerly accept the federal largesse of the New Deal but at the same time bitterly denounce its philosophy and goals in the wake of the Great Depression. R. Alton Lee is a professor emeritus of history at the University of South Dakota. He is the author of The Bizarre Careers of John R. Brinkley and T-Town on the Plains. "Lee provides a compelling narrative of Kansas labor. Building on the accounts of other writers, Professor Lee further illuminates the story of the state's wage earners. He skillfully weaves Kansas politics into the fabric of the labor movement and puts this in a national context. Professor Lee has written a synthesis that captures the rich heritage of Kansas labor history."ÑRalph Scharnau, Kansas History "[Readers] will find Lee's grand narrative of Kansas's industrial development and labor's reaction and reform exceedingly valuable."ÑJeffrey A. Johnson, South Dakota History "Lee covers a wide range of issues and incidents of significance to Kansas workers and to the politicians and labor leaders who took up their cause, from the railroad strikes and problems of the 1870s and 1880s to the struggle over 'right to work' in the late 1950s."ÑNebraska History "It is with regard to the economic, social, and political changes in Kansas as the twentieth century wore on that the book is most astute as a regional study of national trends. Lee expertly weaves the history of the Great Depression and New Deal reforms in terms of significant effects on working-class life and on changing governmental policies in Kansas. . . . Probably the most important chapter in Lee's study is "Farmer against Laborer," in which the author deals with a major problem in twentieth-century labor history that carries over into the current century: the failure of the movement to build upon or even advance its role in the American economy after the immediate postwar period. Although this is a national issue, Lee explains how it has played out in a largely agrarian state with a voting constituency that truly did not understand or perhaps even care to understand the necessity of economic democracy in the workplace." ÑGreg Hall, American Historical Review "Historians of the sunflower state have long valorized the agricultural roots of Kansas while largely overlooking the contributions of working men and women to the region's history. In this thorough and well-researched study, Lee attempts to redress this gap in historical knowledge and trade the development of the political, cultural, and economic boundaries that came to divide farmers from wage earners. The volume admirably documents the development of this antagonistic relationship while also providing a detailed outline of labor history in Kansas. . . . Lee successfully explores workers' struggles in the railroad industry, mining, itinerant farm labor, aeronautics, defense, oil, and meatpacking."ÑMargaret C. Wood, Great Plains Quarterly "R. Alton Lee presents a well-researched narrative of organized labor, labor regulation, and the story of industrial work and workers in Kansas since the Civil War."ÑBill Mullins, Chronicles of Oklahoma, University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2008, AuthorHouse. Paperback. New. Paperback. 300 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.2in. x 0.7in.Barry Johnsons first book, The Treewallers, is a delightful adventure for children from eight to one hundred. This story rekindles the wonder of childhood for older readers, and introduces younger readers to a plausible fantasy set in the vanishing forests of the Pacific Northwest: Even now, Americas temperate rain forests are misty, magical places, jungle like, with thick vines interwoven through leafy overhead canopies little changed through millenniums. Before the stone age, tiny creatures called treewallers sought refuge among the massive forests. Over many centuries a small, intelligent gathering of these creatures evolved to form a symbiotic interdependence with the trees, learning the ultra low frequency language by which these living giants communicate world wide. The treewallers were once known to early Native Americans. But as the land was cleared and farmed and towns spread, they shrank deeper into the forests, avoiding human scrutiny. Natural linguists, special waller teachers had learned the human language from settler sprouts (children) whose tales of tiny creatures were dismissed as childhood fantasies. The wallers remained hidden for sixteen more long decades, until today. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., AuthorHouse, Authorhouse. Paperback. New. Paperback. 452 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.Egypt is what locals call the scenic Ozark foothills of Southern Illinois. Out of Egypt captures the experiences of a young boy who grew up in small town and rural America during the 1930s and 40s. The author grew up in Carbondale, Illinois, but spent much of his time on the farms of his uncles west of Murphysboro. The story is told from a small boys point of view with puckish good humor. The events of his youth are cast against the changes in American life being wrought by the Great Depression and World War II. Those changes had a profound impact on the boys family, hometown, and the surrounding area. Out of Egypt is a pithy slice of small town Americana during the pre-war and World War II years. The book is about facing up to the many challenges of boyhood and trying to gain wisdom in the process. This item ships from multiple locations.

To the west On May 10, 1940, the Wehrmacht strikes The Netherlands which Hitler expects will capitulate within a day or two. He is mistaken. Grebbe Line defenders exhibit legendary Dutch stubbornness, Hitlers airborne troops drop onto Rotterdam and The Hague - and meet fierce opposition, and outnumbered and outgunned Dutch troops change - unknowingly at the time - the course of WWII and world history. A stout-hearted queen and a Carmelite priest stand up to Nazism, and resistance fighters cunning and courage prove lethal for some of historys lesser-known bad guys. Two girls emigrate from Romanian farms to Paris and then Amsterdam and make life-altering choices. A young American employee of a global steamship company finds himself swept into this maelstrom.

Softcover. Brand new book. A meticulous history of McCarthyism and the Supreme Court In this volume, attorney Robert M. Lichtman provides a comprehensive history of the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions in "Communist" cases during the McCarthy era. Lichtman shows the Court's vulnerability to public criticism and attacks by the elected branches during periods of political repression. The book describes every Communist-related decision of the era (none is omitted), placing them in the context of political events and revealing the range and intrusiveness of McCarthy-era repression. In Fred Vinson's term as chief justice (1946-53), the Court largely rubber-stamped government action against accused Communists and "subversives." After Earl Warren replaced Vinson as chief justice in 1953, however, the Court began to rule against the government in "Communist" cases, choosing the narrowest of grounds but nonetheless outraging public opinion and provoking fierce attacks from the press and Congress. Legislation to curb the Court flooded Congress and seemed certain to be enacted. The Court's situation was aggravated by its 1954 school-desegregation decision, Brown v. Board of Education, which led to an anti-Court alliance between southern Democrats and anti-Communists in both parties. Although Lyndon Johnson's remarkable talents as Senate majority leader saved the Court from highly punitive legislation, the attacks caused the Court to retreat, with Felix Frankfurter leading a five-justice majority that decided major constitutional issues for the government and effectively nullified earlier decisions. Only after August 1962, when Frankfurter retired and was replaced by Arthur Goldberg, did the Court again begin to vindicate individual rights in "Communist" cases--its McCarthy era was over. Demonstrating keen insight into the Supreme Court's inner workings and making extensive use of the justices' papers, Lichtman examines the dynamics of the Court's changes in direction and the relationships and rivalries among its justices, including such towering figures as Hugo Black, Felix Frankfurter, Earl Warren, William O. Douglas, and William J. Brennan, Jr. The Supreme Court and McCarthy-Era Repression: One Hundred Decisions tells the entire story of the Supreme Court during this unfortunate period of twentieth-century American history. Robert M. Lichtman, a Washington, D.C., lawyer for nearly thirty years, has practiced in San Francisco since 1986. He is coauthor of Deadly Farce: Harvey Matusow and the Informer System in the McCarthy Era. "In its vivid portrayal of the Court's attempts to balance liberty and order under severe pressures, The Supreme Court and McCarthy-Era Repression tells the story of a Court in turmoil that still managed to lay the foundation for the protection of civil rights."--Harvard Law Review "A comprehensive reference work on the Court, with an excellent bibliography and abundant endnotes. . . . invaluable."--History News Network "A thoroughly researched, easily readable, and highly useful overview of the US Supreme Court's handling of Communist-related cases during the years 1948-1967."--The Historian "A concise yet comprehensive. . . .tool for historians seeking to understand the flow of anticommunist jurisprudence over more than a decade."--Journal of American History "A masterful piece of painstaking legal research and measured analysis. Lichtman demonstrates dramatically the vulnerability of our most revered national institutions in the face of strong political and popular pressures, while at the same time revealing an impressive array of legal maneuvers judges can use to stave off permanent wounds to our constitutional heritage."--Patricia M. Wald, former Chief Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit (ret.) "In describing every Communist decision by the Supreme Court during the McCarthy era, Robert M. Lichtman illuminates the incredible breadth of the anti-communist programs and the injuries they inflicted on the individuals affected and the nation as a whole."--Lucas A. Powe Jr., author of The Warren Court and American Politics "An overwhelmingly detailed, well-documented analysis of the reactions, attitudes, and decisions of the various Supreme Court justices in McCarthy-era cases. The many interesting historical, political, and biographical vignettes will attract readers interested in legal history, political science, and communications."--Daniel J. Leab, editor of American Communist History and author of Orwell Subverted: The CIA and the Filming of Animal Farm "Lichtman's book is a carefully researched and well-crafted snapshot of a particularly important period in the development of constitutional law. His masterly knitting together of historical background, sharp portraits of the Justices, and concise yet incisive accounts of the cases will be invaluable for students of this key moment in the Court's history."--Aziz Z. Huq, coauthor of Unchecked and Unbalanced: Presidential Power in a Time of Terror, University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015, 1st Book Library. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 300 pages.

You understand that most of our competitors east of the line above indicated have made no advances on drills. The International Harvester Co. , we think, have advanced 5 per cent in that territory, but the American Seeding Machine Co. , the Ontario Drill Co. , and several others, have made no change. This is the reason why we felt that we could not make the same advance in the eastern territory that we did in the western. F. K. Todd, of Deere and Co. , in his explanation to the Commission stated that the differentiation between the eastern and western territory was due to the fact that east of the boundary line named, Deere and Co. s contracts were flat-price contracts containing no clause providing for price increases. These contracts ran to November 1, 1916, when it was proposed to make price advances in the eastern territory. On February 23, 1916, F. D. Wolcott, assistant manager of the implement division of the Emerson-Brantingham Implement Co. , sent the companys price list to F. C. Johnson, vice president of the American Seeding Machine Co. , and wrote that he--would be pleased to have the prices and terms that have been effective on your product up to date during the season 1915-1916 and If it Is your Intention to ask nn advance in view of the material situation. In reply Mr. Johnson wrote on February 26, giving the advance information as to what his company was going to do in the matter of prices: With reference to advances, will state that it is our intention to make an advance that will run from 12 per cent to 15 per cent. This advance, however, will be effective for 1917 business only, as our contracts for 1916 are practically all made, and we unfortunately have no clause permittin. . .

Détails sur le livre
Land Degradation: Creation and Destruction

This up-to-date, second edition of Land Degradation explores substantial decreases in the land's biological productivity or usefulness to humans due to human activities. Case studies cover the history of land degradation, local and regional effects of human interactions with the environment, and both negative and positive aspects of land modification. Extensively illustrated, Land Degradation can be used as the primary text in a course of the same name or as a supplement in courses covering land use, environmental change, and sustainability.
