Our senses of place, however, come not only from our individual ... View more info

Forced to either lead his warriors in a war he knew they could not win or leave them to their fates, he declared, " Little Crow] is not a coward: he will die with you." So began six weeks of intense conflict along the Minnesota frontier as the Dakotas clashed with sett... View more info

The Book of the Fourth World offers detailed analyses of texts that range far back into the centuries of civilised life from what is now Latin- and Anglo-America. At the time of its 'discovery', the American continent was identified as the Fourth World of our planet. In the course of just a few centuries its original inhabitants, though settled there for millennia and countable in many millions, have come to be perceived as a marginal if not entirely dispensable factor in the continent's destiny. Today the term has been taken up again by its native peoples, to describe their own world: both it... View more info

Recapturing what ordinary Americans saw on the screen during the emerging Nazi threat, Thomas Doherty reclaims forgotten films, such as "Hitler's Reign of Terror" (1934), a pioneering anti-Nazi docudrama by Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr.; "I Was a Captive of Nazi Germany" (1936), a sensational true tale of "a Hollywood girl in Naziland "; and "Professor Mamlock" (1938), an anti-Nazi film made by German refugees living in the So...
