From Ansel Adams to Carleton Watkins, Diane Arbus to Weegee, Richard Avedon to James VanDerZee, American photographers have recorded their vast, multicultural nation in images that, for more than a hundred years, have come to define the USA. In Photography and the USA, Mick Gidley explores not only the medium of photography and the efforts to capture key events and moments through photographs, but also the many ways in which the medium has played a formative role in American culture.

Photography and the USA encompasses the major movements, figures and works that are crucial to understanding American photography, but also pays attention to more obscure aspects of photographys history. Focusing on works that reveal many different facets of America, its landscapes and its people, Gidley explores the ambiguities of American history and culture. We encounter images that range from an anti-lynching demo in 1934 to Dorothea Langes poster All races serve the crops in California; an early photographic view of Niagara Falls against the painstaking detail of Edward Westons Pepper, No. 30; a firemans fight in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 to the Ground Zero images of 2001 by Joel Meyerowitz; an 1890s Wanted image to Elliot Erwitts shot of the Nixon-Kruschchev Kitchen Debate. Organizing his narrative around the themes of history, technology, the document and the emblem, Mick Gidley not only presents a history of photography, but also reveals the complexities inherent in reading photographs themselves.

A concise yet comprehensive overview of photography in the United States, this book is an excellent introduction to the subject for American Studies or visual arts students, or for anyone interested in US history or culture.

Описание: Jannaway's Mutiny is a novel of love and tragedy that reveals the secret causes of the British Navy's most catastrophic mutiny.

In September 1931, the sailors of the Royal Navy's Atlantic Fleet staged a mass mutiny at Invergordon, Scotland. In this historical fiction account, Charles Gidley Wheeler tells the life story of Frank Jannaway, a British sailor who finds himself at the focus of the mutiny.

Sent into the Navy against his will, Frank experiences the hardship and injustice of life on the lower deck aboard a coal-burning cruiser on the China Station. After serving with distinction at the Battle of Jutland, Frank reunites with Anita Yarrow, whom he has known since his youth, and who has been sent to Malta in disgrace. Anita helps Frank, her childhood hero, to gain promotion to officer rank. Years later, when Anita's brother, Roddy Yarrow, is bullying his officers aboard a cruiser of the Atlantic Fleet, Frank Jannaway is appointed to his ship. The result is tragedy.

Encompassing an era from the Edwardian Golden Age to wartime Britain in the blitz, Jannaway's Mutiny paints a vivid picture of love, ambition, self-sacrifice and heroism--and of the part that captains and admirals of the Royal Navy played in ringing down the final curtain on the British Empire.

The Danish-owned island of 1870s Saint Croix vibrates with passion and tension as Anna Clausen, a young Anglo-Danish woman, returns to her childhood home after her mother's death. Her heart sinks at what she finds on arrival. Her father is ailing and desolate and her beloved plantation, Anna's Fancy, which has been in the Clausen family for three generations, is in shambles.

The unwelcome lust of one man and forbidden love for another makes Anna's return to Saint Croix even more turbulent. Despite the decline in the sugar industry she is determined to retain Anna's Fancy but must first win the trust of her field workers, of Sampson the foreman, and the grudging respect of Emiline the cook and local weed woman.

Fireburn tells of the horrors of a little-known, bloody period of Caribbean history. Anna weathers personal heartache as she challenges the conventions of the day, the hostility of the predominantly male landowners and survives the worker rebellion of 1878, 30 years after Emancipation.

Rich in description, Fireburn is a well-researched novel that shines a light on a historic period in Saint Croix that has received little attention in literature until now.
