Anthony and the first woman to receive the United States Distinguished Service Medal. Born in England, Shaw immigrated to the United States as a child and in 1880 became the first woman ordained as a Methodist preacher. She subsequently left the pulpit to serve as president of the National American Suffrage Association--and later, as head of the Women's Committee of the Council of National Defense during World War I. Leontine T. C. Kelly was the first woman African American bishop in the United Methodist church. She retired in 1988.

Download Free The Cultural Politics of U.S. Immigration PDF by Leah Perry Full Book and published by NYU Press. This book was released on 2016-09-27 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the 1980s, amid increasing immigration from Latin America, the Caribbean, and Asia, the circle of who was considered American seemed to broaden, reflecting the democratic gains made by racial minorities and women. Although this expanded circle was increasingly visible in the daily lives of Americans through TV shows, films, and popular news media, these gains were circumscribed by the discourse that certain immigrants, for instance single and working mothers, were feared, censured, or welcomed exclusively as laborers. In The Cultural Politics of U.S. Immigration, Leah Perry argues that 1980s immigration discourse in law and popular media was a crucial ingredient in the cohesion of the neoliberal idea of democracy. Blending critical legal analysis with a feminist media studies methodology over a range of sources, including legal documents, congressional debates, and popular media, such as Golden Girls, Who’s the Boss?, Scarface, and Mi Vida Loca, Perry shows how even while “multicultural” immigrants were embraced, they were at the same time disciplined through gendered discourses of respectability. Examining the relationship between law and culture, this book weaves questions of legal status and gender into existing discussions about race and ethnicity to revise our understanding of both neoliberalism and immigration.

Download Free A Disability History of the United States PDF by Kim E. Nielsen Full Book and published by Beacon Press. This book was released on 2012-10-02 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first book to cover the entirety of disability history, from pre-1492 to the present Disability is not just the story of someone we love or the story of whom we may become; rather it is undoubtedly the story of our nation. Covering the entirety of US history from pre-1492 to the present, A Disability History of the United States is the first book to place the experiences of people with disabilities at the center of the American narrative. In many ways, it’s a familiar telling. In other ways, however, it is a radical repositioning of US history. By doing so, the book casts new light on familiar stories, such as slavery and immigration, while breaking ground about the ties between nativism and oralism in the late nineteenth century and the role of ableism in the development of democracy. A Disability History of the United States pulls from primary-source documents and social histories to retell American history through the eyes, words, and impressions of the people who lived it. As historian and disability scholar Nielsen argues, to understand disability history isn’t to narrowly focus on a series of individual triumphs but rather to examine mass movements and pivotal daily events through the lens of varied experiences. Throughout the book, Nielsen deftly illustrates how concepts of disability have deeply shaped the American experience—from deciding who was allowed to immigrate to establishing labor laws and justifying slavery and gender discrimination. Included are absorbing—at times horrific—narratives of blinded slaves being thrown overboard and women being involuntarily sterilized, as well as triumphant accounts of disabled miners organizing strikes and disability rights activists picketing Washington. Engrossing and profound, A Disability History of the United States fundamentally reinterprets how we view our nation’s past: from a stifling master narrative to a shared history that encompasses us all.
Download Free The Annotated Old Four Legs PDF by Mike Bruton Full Book and published by Penguin Random House South Africa. This book was released on 2017-11-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When the famous South African fish scientist Professor JLB Smith published Old Fourlegs – The Story of the Coelacanth in 1956 he created an international sensation. After all, this 400-million-year-old fish, known only from fossil remains, was thought to have become extinct around 66 million years ago! JLB Smith’s dramatic account of the discovery of the first and second coelacanths in 1938 and 1952 turned him into a cult figure and put South African science on the world map. His book was eventually published in six English editions and translated into nine foreign languages. Mike Bruton’s The Annotated Old Fourlegs includes a facsimile reprint of the original book, to which he has added notes and images in the margins that provide an interesting and revealing commentary on Smith’s text, as well as new introductory and explanatory chapters that bring the coelacanth story up to date.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Excepting Lala Lajpat Raiji, the land of the five rivers has not produced in modern history a nobler Indian Patriot, a more devoted worker in the cause of the political freedom of Hindusthan, our Father Land and our Holy Land, while in suffering and sacrifice none who could be compared with him. "Many there be who join a great cause when it is victorious and paying; a few there are who join in the fight for it when chances of ultimate victory are not out of sight; but scarcely one in a million is found who refuses to budge an inch and continues the fight for an ideal single-handed and alone even when all is lost and all have either forsaken or betrayed. A Rana Pratap at Chittore, a Bhau Sahab Peshwa at Panipat! It is they who are the standard-bearers of a Nation, a Race, a Religion and it is when drenched in their blood that the Despair of a people is reborn as a Hope in the next generation. Their immediate defeat and death assure the life and victory of a Race. Of such a mettle as that is Bhai Parmananda fashioned." —Swatantryavir Vinayak D. Savarkar
