The Other North America. Traditions and Identities


Now, in the dawn of the 21st century, the continent of North America is overshadowed by the idea of ‘America’, yet, to what degree are the realities of being North American actually defined by the imaginations and aspirations of a certain few in 1776? The Other North America contains a collection of essays by Anglican authors from around the continent that bring attention to the natural identities and classical traditions that when taken together demonstrate the existence of two competing North Americas. There is a vision in which all in what has become the shared English-speaking society of North America are to be forcibly conformed to the proposition of the ‘American’, the pursuit of which has already led to the violent conflicts of 1812 and 1861–1865. Within the Anglican tradition is to be found an ethical alternative, one which seeks to understand the positive differences among North Americans, and to live in harmony with those realities, rather than to eliminate them by integrating all into a universal ideal. The continued presence of another North America in the shadows, as explored in The Other North America, brings into doubt whether the ultimate fate of every North American will be their reduction to an ‘American’ ideal, or whether instead of such a fate, a deeper understanding as to what it means to exist as a North American will emerge.

Francis Jr. Parkman The Jesuits in North America the Seventeenth Century


Working from firsthand sources-and through the bias and prejudices of his time-noted American historian and writer Francis Parkman produced, in 1867, this prodigious history of the Jesuit priesthood in North America during the early decades of the European colonization.With reports, memoirs, journals, letters, and other papers both official and private serving as his background, Parkman details the Catholics' attempts to convert the Huron, Algonquin, and Iroquois, as well as the resulting Iroquois war on the converted tribes in 1670s. But Parkman, unlike his fellow contemporary historians, also explores the ways and traditions of the tribes themselves.FRANCIS PARKMAN (1823-1893) was born in Boston, Massachusetts, to a wealthy family whose fortune allowed him the freedom to pursue his twin scholarly passions of horticulture and history. A founder of the Archaeological Institute of America, he authored The Oregon Trail: Sketches of Prairie and Rocky-Mountain Life and the eight-volume France and England in North America, both considered among the great masterpieces of historical literature.

A Liberating Spirit


The historical ambivalence among Pentecostals about their relationship to culture and society needs evaluation. How do we understand Pentecostal engagement with society, and how are Pentecostals in North America engaging issues of race, class, gender, and ecology? What theologically motivates North American Pentecostals to respond to social issues? What categories best explain Pentecostal responses to social issues in North America? How do they compare to Pentecostal responses elsewhere? Recently, scholars of global Pentecostalism have proposed that the experience of the Spirit among Pentecostals has elicited the development of a Pentecostal ""theology of liberation,"" which has implications for understanding Pentecostal responses to social issues. These projects primarily explore the Pentecostal response to cultural issues in areas outside of North America and especially focus on Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This volume assesses whether the categories of social liberation applied to non-Western Pentecostalism characterize Pentecostalism in North America. Is there evidence of a Pentecostal ""theology of liberation"" that explains Pentecostal engagement in North America? Do social-liberation categories fit the North American Pentecostal responses to social issues or are others more suitable? These and other important questions about the relation between liberation theology and North American Pentecostalism are thoroughly explored in this imp...

Gregory D. Smithers Native Southerners. Indigenous History from Origins to Removal


Long before the indigenous people of southeastern North America first encountered Europeans and Africans, they established communities with clear social and political hierarchies and rich cultural traditions. Award-winning historian Gregory D. Smithers brings this world to life in Native Southerners, a sweeping narrative of American Indian history in the Southeast from the time before European colonialism to the Trail of Tears and beyond.In the Native South, as in much of North America, storytelling is key to an understanding of origins and tradition—and the stories of the indigenous people of the Southeast are central to Native Southerners. Spanning territory reaching from modern-day Louisiana and Arkansas to the Atlantic coast, and from present-day Tennessee and Kentucky through Florida, this book gives voice to the lived history of such well-known polities as the Cherokees, Creeks, Seminoles, Chickasaws, and Choctaws, as well as smaller Native communities like the Nottoway, Occaneechi, Haliwa-Saponi, Catawba, Biloxi-Chitimacha, Natchez, Caddo, and many others. From the oral and cultural traditions of these Native peoples, as well as the written archives of European colonists and their Native counterparts, Smithers constructs a vibrant history of the societies, cultures, and people that made and remade the Native South in the centuries before the American Civil War. What emerges is a complex picture of how Native Southerners understood themselves and their world—a portrayal...

His conclusions-once common knowledge, but now suppressed in the name of political correctness-deal with many of the critical issues which surrounded the original settling of America-and the concepts of race and racial differences."We are surprised sometimes, it is true, at the ingenuity which the Indians exhibited in some of their inventions, and it is, indeed, in some sense wonderful that with materials and implements so imperfect they could manufacture such efficient weapons and carry out such curious contrivances. But, after all, when we come to compare a bark canoe, perfect as it is in its way, with one of the ocean steam-ships of the Caucasian race, or the best made stone-tipped arrow ever shot at a moose or a buffalo, with the double-barreled rifled carbines carrying an explosive bullet, with which a French hunter lies in wait for an African lion, we learn the immense distance which separates the powers and attainments of the two races from each other."

Best Creative Nonfiction of the South, Volume II. North Carolina


Best Creative Nonfiction of the South serves as a valuable resource for scholars, students, writers, and general readers interested in creative nonfiction both from specific areas of the South and across the region as a whole. This North Carolina volume, second in the series, contains essays that celebrate and document the Tar Heel state’s diverse cultures and geography, from the mountains to the sea. The writers included here come from diverse backgrounds, generations, and artistic traditions, and as with most volumes in the series, this one indirectly reflects literary changes within the region over time. In some cases, publisher permissions and other factors have foiled the editors from including the work of deserving writers. Nevertheless, the abundant literary talent in the state has lessened the impact of the occasional unfortunate omission.
