One Step Over the Line: Toward a History of Women in the North American Wests

One Step Over the Line: Toward a History of Women in the North American Wests by Elizabeth Jameson, Sheila McManus
English | May 25th, 2008 | ISBN: 9780888645012 | 475 Pages | PDF | 23.61 MB

This eclectic and carefully organized range of essays-from women's history and settler societies to colonialism and borderlands studies-is the first collection of comparative and transnational work on women in the Canadian and U.S. Wests. It explores, expands, and advances the aspects of women's history that cross national borders. Out of the talks presented at the 2002 "Unsettled Pasts: Reconceiving the West through Women's History," Elizabeth Jameson and Sheila McManus have edited a foundational text for pioneering scholars of this emergent, interdisciplinary field.

Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason by Michel Foucault

Michel Foucault examines the archeology of madness in the West from 1500 to 1800 - from the late Middle Ages, when insanity was still considered part of everyday life and fools and lunatics walked the streets freely, to the time when such people began to be considered a threat, asylums were first built, and walls were erected between the "insane" and the rest of humanity.

Theft: A History of Music

Theft: A History of Music by James Boyle
English | Feb. 14, 2017 | ISBN: 1535543671 | 263 Pages | PDF | 49 MB

Theft: A History of Music: This comic lays out 2000 years of musical history. A neglected part of musical history. Again and again there have been attempts to police music; to restrict borrowing and cultural cross-fertilization. But music builds on itself. To those who think that mash-ups and sampling started with YouTube or the DJ’s turntables, it might be shocking to find that musicians have been borrowing – extensively borrowing – from each other since music began. Then why try to stop that process? The reasons varied. Philosophy, religion, politics, race – again and again, race – and law. And because music affects us so deeply, those struggles were passionate ones. They still are.
