Journalism is both an art and profession which records events and opinions and seek to interpret and mould them for the benefit of the educated public book. This is a story in the words of an American writer of humanity's long struggle to communicate freely with each other to dig out and interpret news and to offer intelligent opinion in the market place of ideas. Part of the story has as its theme the continuing efforts by men and women to break down barriers that have been erected to prevent the flow of information and ideals upon which public opinion is so largely dependent. The aim of this book is to help understand the history of journalism. The book is significant for the students and teachers., Murari, Cambridge, Massachusetts: MIT Press, 1996 Moderate cover, edge wear. Pages good, few w/underscore. 317 pages. A history replete with compromise and capitulation has pushed a once promising and effective political movement to the brink of irrelevance. "Losing Ground" unveils the inside stories behind American environmentalism's undeniable triumphs and its quite unnecessary failures. Mark Dowie, the award-winning journalist who broke the stories on the Dalkon Shield and on the Ford Pinto, delivers an informative account of the movement many historians and social commentators at one time expected to be the 20th century's most significant. .

Synopsis In Hearts of Fire, Kemp Battle celebrates a diverse and deeply satisfying array of folk heroines and other great American women - memorable midwives, teachers, medicine women, historians, mothers, spiritual healers, and suffragettes - who represent an astonishing range of experience and give new meaning to the term pioneer. Gathered from books, journals, diaries, newspapers, and letters spanning three centuries, these fascinating stories highlight the American woman's journey toward identity, independence, and self-creation. They serve to remind us, yet again, that America's faith in an individual's right to the pursuit of happiness has been tested repeatedly by our nation's women. These pages are filled with women like Fanny Fern, the first female newspaper columnist in America, whose early and eloquent review of Whitman's Leaves of Grass stands out as a vivid and prescient testimonial; Ernestine Rose, who fled from an oppressive father in Poland to become one of the first leaders of the American suffragette movement; Sojourner Truth, whose wisdom and insight into the nature of slavery humbles us still; Dorothea Moulton Balano, a seafaring woman whose infectiously exuberant diaries would inspire anyone to go to sea; Luella Day, a practicing physician, who took off for an adventure in the Yukon during the gold rush only to confront the surprising specter of poverty and suffering in the Klondike; and Lynda Van Devanter, an army nurse in Vietnam, whose memories of war offer us a glimpse into the powerful idealism and indomitable will necessary to survive the worst traumas. Whether they are of major or minor importance to the narrative of American history, the many women who come alive in these pages represent a vivid part of our national character and the path of our nation's destiny. Hearts of Fire honors these great women, whose defiance of expectations and conformity was sometimes dangerous, often arduous, and always inspiring. . Trade Paperback.
