  • Storyworlds across Mediaby Marie-Laure Ryan; Jan-NoŽl Thon

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2014; US$ 35.00

    The proliferation of media and their ever-increasing role in our daily life has produced a strong sense that understanding media?everything from oral storytelling, literary narrative, newspapers, and comics to radio, film, TV, and video games?is key to understanding the dynamics of culture and society. Storyworlds across Media explores how media,... more...

  • Antisemitism and the Constitution of Sociologyby Marcel Stoetzler

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2014; US$ 65.00

    Modern antisemitism and the modern discipline of sociology not only emerged in the same period, but?antagonism and hostility between the two discourses notwithstanding?also overlapped and complemented each other. Sociology emerged in a society where modernization was often perceived as destroying unity and ?social cohesion.? Antisemitism was likewise... more...

  • The Pawnee Mission Letters, 1834-1851by Richard E. Jensen

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2010; US$ 60.00

    Rev. John Dunbar and Samuel Allis set out in 1834 to establish a mission to Indians beyond the Rocky Mountains. Unable to obtain a guide and with only a vague knowledge of the West, they instead encountered the Pawnee Indians in Nebraska. It was the beginning of a twelve-year odyssey to convert the tribe to Protestant Christianity and New England ?civilization.?... more...

  • Such a Lifeby Lee Martin

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 16.95

    Lee Martin tells us in his memoir, “I was never meant to come along. My parents married late. My father was thirty-eight, my mother forty-one. When he found out she was pregnant, he asked the doctor, ‘Can you get rid of it?’” From such an inauspicious beginning, Martin began collecting impressions that, through the tincture... more...

  • The Struggle in Black and Brownby Brian D Behnken; Brian D Behnken

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 35.00

    It might seem that African Americans and Mexican Americans would have common cause in matters of civil rights. This volume, which considers relations between blacks and browns during the civil rights era, carefully examines the complex and multifaceted realities that complicate such assumptions—and that revise our view of both the civil rights... more...

  • Screening Integrationby Sylvie Durmelat; Vinay Swamy; Sylvie Durmelat; Vinay Swamy

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 35.00

    North African immigrants, once confined to France’s social and cultural margins, have become a strong presence in France’s national life. Similarly, descendants of immigrants from Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia have gained mainstream recognition as filmmakers and as the subject of films. The first collective volume on this topic, Screening... more...

  • Native Actsby Joshua David Bellin; Laura L. Mielke; Philip J. Deloria

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 35.00

    Long before the Boston Tea Party, where colonists staged a revolutionary act by masquerading as Indians, people looked to Native Americans for the symbols, imagery, and acts that showed what it meant to be “American.” And for just as long, observers have largely overlooked the role that Native peoples themselves played in creating and... more...

  • The First We Can Rememberby Lee Schweninger; Lee Schweninger

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2011; US$ 35.00

    Looking over the great prairie in the early 1880s, Nellie Buchanan said, “I knew I would never be contented until I had a home of our own in the wonderful West.” Some were not so sanguine. Mary Cox described the prairie as “the most barren, forsaken country that we had ever seen.” Like the others whose stories appear in this... more...

  • Cather Studies, Volume 9by Cather Studies; Guy J Reynolds; Melissa J. Homestead

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2011; US$ 40.00

    Linking Willa Cather to “the modern” or “modernism” still seems an eccentric proposition to some people. Born in 1873, Cather felt tied to the past when she witnessed the emergence of twentieth-century modern culture, and the clean, classical sentences in her fiction contrast starkly with the radically experimental prose of... more...

  • Selections from Eliza Leslieby Eliza Leslie; Etta M. Madden; Etta M. Madden

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2011; US$ 40.00

    Best known for her culinary and domestic guides and the award-winning short story “Mrs. Washington Potts,” Eliza Leslie deserves a much more prominent place in contemporary literary discussions of the nineteenth century. Her writing, known for its overtly moralistic and didactic tones—though often presented with wit and humor—also... more...
