[EAN: 9780807853993], Neubuch, [PU: The University of North Carolina Press], JANET M. DAVIS,SOCIAL SCIENCES,TECHNOLOGY,THEATER,20TH CENTURY,PERFORMING ARTS,UNITED STATES,GOVERNMENT, History|United States|20th Century, Performing Arts|Circus, Technology|Social Aspects, Paperback. 360 pages. A century ago, daily life ground to a halt when the circus rolled into town. Across America, banks closed, schools canceled classes, farmers left their fields, and factories shut down so that everyone could go to the show. In this entertaining and provocative book, Janet Davis links the flowering of the early-twentieth-century American railroad circus to such broader historical developments as the rise of big business, the breakdown of separate spheres for men and women, and the genesis of the United States overseas empire. In the process, she casts the circus as a powerful force in consolidating the nations identity as a modern industrial society and world power. Davis explores the multiple shows that took place under the big top, from scripted performances to exhibitions of laborers assembling and tearing down tents to impromptu spectacles of audiences brawling, acrobats falling, and animals rampaging. Turning Victorian notions of gender, race, and nationhood topsy-turvy, the circus brought its vision of a rapidly changing world to spectators--rural as well as urban--across the nation. Even today, Davis contends, the influence of the circus continues to resonate in popular representations of gender, race, and the wider world. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

[EAN: 9780807853993], Neubuch, [PU: The University of North Carolina Press], History|United States|20th Century, Performing Arts|Circus, Technology|Social Aspects, BRAND NEW, The Circus Age: Culture and Society Under the American Big Top, Janet M. Davis, This volume explores the development of the early 20th-century railroad circus against such broader historical developments as the rise of big business, the breakdown of separate spheres for men and women, and the genesis of the United States' overseas empire.

It goes on to view the many shows that took place under the big top, from scripted performances to exhibitions of labourers to acrobats falling and animals rampaging. Turning Victorian notions of gender, race and nationhood on their head, the circus brought its vision of a rapidly changing world to spectators, both rural and urban, across the nation. This book suggests that even today the influence of the circus continues to resonate in popular representations of gender, race, and the wider world.
