A candid and fascinating portrait of the American composer. The son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, Aaron Copland (1900-1990) became one of America's most beloved and esteemed composers. His work, which includes Fanfare for the Common Man, A Lincoln Portrait, and Appalachian Spring, has been honored by a huge following of devoted listeners. But the full richness of Copland's life and accomplishments has never, until now, been documented or understood. Howard Pollack's meticulously researched and engrossing biography explores the symphony of Copland's life: his childhood in Brooklyn; his homosexuality; Paris in the early 1920s; the Alfred Stieglitz circle; his experimentation with jazz; the communist witch trials; Hollywood in the forties; public disappointment with his later, intellectual work; and his struggle with Alzheimer's disease. Furthermore, Pollack presents informed discussions of Copland's music, explaining and clarifying its newness and originality, its aesthetic and social aspects, its distinctive and enduring personality.

Aberrations In Black: Toward A Queer Of Color Critique (Critical American Studies)

LCC: PS374.N4

The sociology of race relations in America typically describes an intersection of poverty, race, and economic discrimination. But what is missing from the picture-sexual difference-can be as instructive as what is present. In this ambitious work, Roderick A. Ferguson reveals how the discourses of sexuality are used to articulate theories of racial difference in the field of sociology.

The sociology of race relations in America typically describes an intersection of poverty, race, and economic discrimination. But what is missing from the picture-sexual difference-can be as instructive as what is present. In this ambitious work, Roderick A. Ferguson reveals how the discourses of sexuality are used to articulate theories of racial difference in the field of sociology. He shows how canonical sociology-Gunnar Myrdal, Ernest Burgess, Robert Park, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and William Julius Wilson-has measured African Americans' unsuitability for a liberal capitalist order in terms of their adherence to the norms of a heterosexual and patriarchal nuclear family model. In short, to the extent that African Americans' culture and behavior deviated from those norms, they would not achieve economic and racial equality. Aberrations in Black tells the story of canonical sociology's regulation of sexual difference as part of its general regulation of African American culture. Ferguson places this story within other stories-the narrative of capital's emergence and development, the histories of Marxism and revolutionary nationalism, and the novels that depict the gendered and sexual idiosyncrasies of African American culture-works by Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, and Toni Morrison. In turn, this book tries to present another story-one in which people who presumably manifest the dysfunctions of capitalism are reconsidered as indictments of the norms of state, capital, and social science. Ferguson includes the first-ever discussion of a new archival discovery-a never-published chapter of Invisible Man that deals with a gay character in a way that complicates and illuminates Ellison's project. Unique in the way it situates critiques of race, gender, and sexuality within analyses of cultural, economic, and epistemological formations, Ferguson's work introduces a new mode of discourse-which Ferguson calls queer of color analysis-that helps to lay bare the mutual distortions of racial, economic, and sexual portrayals within sociology. Roderick A. Ferguson is assistant professor of American studies at the University of Minnesota. [less]

When Candace Gingrich met Roseanne Barr at a GLAAD dinner in 1995, the actress said, "Don't worry, honey, I've got a weird brother, too." Candace laughed, and at the same time realized how significant the moment was: She was speaking to a celebrity at a gay rights fund-raiser about her conservative half-brother.

When Candace Gingrich met Roseanne Barr at a GLAAD dinner in 1995, the actress said, "Don't worry, honey, I've got a weird brother, too." Candace laughed, and at the same time realized how significant the moment was: She was speaking to a celebrity at a gay rights fund-raiser about her conservative half-brother. Her lesbianism, and her relation to Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, had catapulted her to a position both exhilarating and terrifying. She had become, quite accidentally, an activist. This is the story of how a lesbian named Candace grew up surrounded by a loving, supportive family, went to college, came out of the closet, fell in love, worked hard at her job and played hard at rugby in a sleepy little town in Pennsylvania. Her life was quiet, her circle of friends tight, her family accepting of her girlfriend. But all the while, Candace's half-brother was realizing his political aspirations, gaining the ears of mighty, conservative politicians, and becoming a major presence in Congress. It wasn't until the Republican sweep of both houses in 1994, when Newt Gingrich became Speaker of the House, that Candace began listening to his political ideas. Newt had become conservative with a capital "C," aligning himself with antigay figures like Pat Robertson. How, Candace wondered, could her brother, the one who treated her girlfriend and their relationship with the utmost respect, be espousing discriminatory rhetoric? How could he vote to reject President Clinton's compromise on the gays-in-the-military issue, to prohibit use of federal funds for public schools that allow open discussion of gay concerns, to discharge people in the military who test HIV-positive, and to overturn a District of Columbia bill that allows unmarried couples to register as domestic partners, all without any stirrings of conscience? Though Candace was troubled, she did not speak out. It was not until a perceptive reporter "outed" her to the press that, suddenly, she was fielding phone calls from every network. And just as suddenly, she realized it was time to challenge her brother on his hateful policies. In The Accidental Activist, Candace Gingrich takes us on an intimate tour of life in the Gingrich family, growing up gay, and finding her activist voice. Her mother is convinced that she and Newt could find common ground if they just sat down and took the time. Until then, Candace will continue her crusade. A tireless lobbyist for gay issues and a political force in her own right, Candace, who was named Spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign in 1995, is not giving up hope for Newt, but she's surely giving him a run for his money.

Over a period of one hundred years, we can see the changing styles in clothes, hair, and attitudes, but what remains constant is the expression of affection and love between these men. Some may be gay, others assuredly not, but whatever the relationship, these images celebrate Walt Whitman's "dear love of comrades." [less]

"After Nirvana follows a group of drugged-out street kids in the Pacific Northwest, hardened survivors who ask for nothing from their parents, their government, or God. Davy - the narrator - chronicles his life on the street with his girlfriend Nikki, with a boy he loves named James, with a twisted older kid named Branch, and with assorted tricks and low-lifes." "Davy's relentless rush of words and images propels the story forward at breakneck pace. He tells you what music he is listening to (Grunge, Post-Grunge, and Dance), what drugs he is taking (mostly Ecstasy, but some acid), but rarely reveals what he thinks or feels." "With his gritty depictions of America's underside, Williams captures the daily existence of these anesthetized teens, including their hypnotically raunchy scenes of gay and straight sex - usually performed for cash or drugs, sometimes for lust or love. Davy and his contemporaries don't waste time worrying about their future or whining about their past. They know it's all about the here and now, and that self-analysis is a luxury for those of us with too much time on our hands."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Is there such a thing as a "normal" family? Is one family better than another? Of course the answer to these questions is no, but children are often led to believe otherwise. Young people need to understand and appreciate that when it comes to families, they are all different!One of the world's most influential and loved authors of educational children's books, Dr. Sol Gordon has created an uplifting book for young people age four and older who are curious about just what it means to be part of a family. Some children, he explains, live with both parents, while others live with one or with step- or foster parents. Nowadays, we also find children being reared by aunts, uncles, or grandparents, as well as same-sex couples. The variety of possibilities is rich in its diversity. Separations, divorce, abuse, neglect, and sibling rivalries are an unfortunate part of life, but, Gordon emphasizes, they are not the child's fault.While the many illustrations show a variety of family situations to stimulate awareness and acceptance, the text places importance on children knowing they are loved by their family members-whomever they may be-and that no one's family is perfect. But children can play a very special and important role in making their home a happier one: "It's up to you to be the best person you can be and doing well in school will help you to be a better adult, or parent, when you grow up," Gordon says.

Meet Caitlin Reece. Smart, cool, tough. A dropout from conventional life. Highly competent in her chosen profession. She has no office, obtains clients by referral only, and never leaves her home without her .357 Magnum Smith and Wesson. Val Frazier, Victoria's star TV anchorwoman, is Caitlin's newest client. She is the victim of a viciously homophobic blackmailer who has discovered her relationship with Tonia Konig. Tonia is a lesbian-feminist professor, an outspoken, passiontely committed proponent of nonviolence. She is enraged by her own helplessness, she is outraged by Caitlin's challenge to her most fundamental beliefs, and by Caitlin herself, whom she considers a "a thug". As Caitlin stalks the blackmailer and his accomplices through the byways of the city of Victoria, she uncovers ever darker layers of danger surrounding Tonia. And she struggles against a new and altogether unwanted complication: she is increasingly attracted to the woman who despises her. The Always Anonymous Beast marks two auspicious debuts: Laren Wright Douglas, a most talented and exciting writer: and Caitlin Reece - intelligent, complex, sharply humorous - one of the most intriguing women ever to appear in mystery fiction.
