Female Adolescent Sexuality in the United States by Ann Kordas

Female Adolescent Sexuality in the United States, 1850-1965 by Ann Kordas
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2 MB
Overview: This book examines the history of female adolescent sexuality in the United States from the middle of the nineteenth century until the beginning of the 1960s. The book analyzes both adult perceptions of female adolescent sexuality and the experiences of female adolescents themselves. It examines what girls knew (or thought they knew) about sex at different points in time, girls sexual experiences, girls ideas about love and romance, female adolescent beauty culture, and the influence of popular culture on female adolescent sexuality. It also examines the ways in which adults responded to female adolescent sexuality and the efforts of adults to either control or encourage girls interest in sexual topics, dating, girls participation in beauty culture, and their education on sexual topics. The book describes a trajectory along which female adolescents went from being perceived as inherently innocent and essentially asexual to being regarded (and feared) as primarily sexual in nature.
Genre: Non-Fiction > History

Extreme States by Coco d’Hont

Extreme States: The Evolution of American Transgressive Fiction 1960-2000 (Routledge Studies in Contemporary Literature) 1st Edition by Coco d’Hont
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 866.1 Kb
Overview: Transgressive fiction explores the crossing of boundaries. Because of its extreme content and style, it is often considered controversial. However, transgressive fiction is not just shocking or disruptive. It is a continuation of an American tradition of creating culture through the crossing of moral, geographical and social boundaries. Extreme States traces the evolution of American transgressive fiction from the 1960s to 2000, exploring how transgressive fiction reflects, exaggerates and critically interrogates how central American ideologies are perpetually (re)constructed in its extra-textual context.
Genre: Non-Fiction > Educational > Literary Theory

How the States Got Their Shapes by Mark Stein

How the States Got Their Shapes by Mark Stein
Requirements: .PDF reader, 7.7 mb
Overview: Why does Oklahoma have that panhandle? Did someone make a mistake? We are so familiar with the map of the United States that our state borders seem as much a part of nature as mountains and rivers. Even the oddities-the entire state of Maryland(!)-have become so engrained that our map might as well be a giant jigsaw puzzle designed by Divine Providence. But that’s where the real mystery begins. Every edge of the familiar wooden jigsaw pieces of our childhood represents a revealing moment of history and of, well, humans drawing lines in the sand.
How the States Got Their Shapes is the first book to tackle why our state lines are where they are. Here are the stories behind the stories, right down to the tiny northward jog at the eastern end of Tennessee and the teeny-tiny (and little known) parts of Delaware that are not attached to Delaware but to New Jersey.

The Late Great United States by Mark Hitchcock

The Late Great United States: What Bible Prophecy Reveals about America’s Last Days by Mark Hitchcock
Requirements: EPUB Reader 2.64 MB
Overview: Is it possible the United States, a superpower without peer in history, might not be a key player as the world makes its way down the road to the Battle of Armageddon?
This is the central question explored by prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock in The Late Great United States, a fascinating behind-the-headlines look at numerous current events and howthey relate to what the Bible says about the last days.

Altered States: Sex, Nation, Drugs by Marlene Tromp

Altered States: Sex, Nation, Drugs, and Self-Transformation in Victorian Spiritualism by Marlene Tromp
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.2MB
Overview: "Here’s why Victorians invented seances, ouija, and spiritists"

Altered States examines the rise of Spiritualism―the religion of séances, mediums, and ghostly encounters―in the Victorian period and the role it played in undermining both traditional female roles and the rhetoric of imperialism. Focusing on a particular kind of séance event―the full-form materialization―and the bodies of the young, female mediums who performed it, Marlene Tromp argues that in the altered state of the séance new ways of understanding identity and relationships became possible. This not only demonstrably shaped the thinking of the Spiritualists, but also the popular consciousness of the period. In diaries, letters, newspaper accounts, scientific reports, and popular fiction, Tromp uncovers evidence that the radical views presented in the faith permeated and influenced mainstream Victorian thought.
