Rutgers University Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 312 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Every May, for more than a decade, an ever-increasing number of motorcyclists have made the Run for the Wall, a cross-country journey from Southern California to the Wall, the Vietnam war memorial in Washington, D. C. While the journeys avowed purpose is political to increase public awareness about those who remain either prisoners of war or missing in action in Southeast Asia it also serves as a healing pilgrimage for its participants and as a welcome-home ritual many veterans feel they never received. Run for the Wall is a highly readable ethnographic account of this remarkable American ritual. The authors, themselves motorcyclists as well as Run participants, demonstrate that the event is a form of secular pilgrimage. Here key concepts in American culture freedom, and brotherhood, for exampleare constructed and deployed in a variety of rituals and symbols to enable participants to come to terms with the consequences of the Vietnam war. While the focus is the journey itself, the book also explores other themes related to American culture and history, including the nature of community, the Vietnam war, and the creation of American secular ritual. In moving, first-hand accounts, the book tells how participation in the POW-MIA social movement helps individuals find personal and collective meaning in Americas longest and most divisive conflict. Above all, this is a story of a uniquely American form of political action, ritual, pilgrimage, and the social construction of memory. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Rutgers University Press, Rutgers Univ Pr. Paperback. New. Paperback. 267 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.When exploring the links between America and postcolonialism, scholars tend to think either in terms of contemporary multiculturalism, or of imperialism since 1898. This narrow view has left more than the two prior centuries of colonizing literary and political culture unexamined. Messy Beginnings challenges the idea of early Americas immunity from issues of imperialism, that its history is not as clean as European colonialism. By addressing the literature ranging from the diaries of American women missionaries in the Middle East to the work of Benjamin Franklin and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and through appraisals of key postcolonial theorists such as Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak, and Homi Bhabha, the contributors to this volume explore the applicability of their models to early American culture. Messy Beginnings argues against the simple concept that the colonization of what became the United States was a confrontation between European culture and the other. Contributors examine the formation of America through the messy or unstable negotiations of the idea of nation. The essays forcefully show that the development of Americanness was a raced and classed phenomenon, achieved through a complex series of violent encounters, legal maneuvers, and political compromises. The complexity of early American colonization, where there was not one coherent nation to conquer, contradicts the simple label of imperialism used in other lands. The unique approach of Messy Beginnings will reshape both pre-conceived notions of postcolonialism, and how postcolonialists think about the development of the American nation.

iUniverse Publishing. Paperback. New. Paperback. 256 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.7in.The concept of home has been changing for more than a century. This change began with colonialism and the movement of people across the globe, often within a set power dynamic. Since people now move with greater frequency, the question of where home is and what home means is more relevant than ever before. Meticulously researched, Transformations of the Liminal Self addresses the formation of home and identity and the ways in which the latter depends on the former. Using the postcolonial Muslim characters in the literary works of British authors Salman Rushdie, Hanif Kureishi, Zadie Smith, Monica Ali, and Fadia Faqir, author Alaa Alghamdi shows how home and identity are profoundly impacted by the power dynamics of the colonial relationship, the individual immigrants experience, and the subjects multicultural setting. Drawing upon the theoretical work of Homi Bhabha, Rosemary Marangoly George, Gayatri Chakrovorty Spivak, and Edward Said, the conception of home and the formation of hybrid identities is examined and connected to larger cultural manifestations of Muslim-Western relationships. More specifically, Alghamdi explores how these characters define their home. Bold and challenging, Alghamdis work offers a rigorous and well-articulated contribution to the ongoing academic conversation about identity and postcolonial literature.
