Download Souls For Sale Classic Reprint books, Excerpt from Souls for Sale Even when the sun had left this capital of the new art, some of the studios would glow on with a man-made day of their own. But most of the factories were closing now, since the toilers had begun betimes in the morning and were scattering homeward for rest or study or mischief. Los Angeles, the huge Spinner, was finishing another day of its traffic in virtue, vice, laughter, love, and its other wares.

Souls For Sale

by Anthony Asadullah Samad, Souls For Sale Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Souls For Sale books, Cultural Writing. African American Studies. SOULS FOR SALE: THE DIARY OF AN EX-COLORED MAN is a riveting portrayal of a second generation advocate's experience in the post civil rights era of the 1980s. Anthony Asadullah Samad offers this retrospect through the eyes of a young advocate's effort to give back to his community, when he takes up membership in the local branch of the NAACP. As a lead official of the Los Angeles NAACP (Vice President 1985-88, President 1988-89), Samad (whose name was Anthony Essex at the time) discovered that the progressive civil rights agenda has been supplanted by inner race conflict and leadership succession battles within the organization, and a cultural compromise that came with the Reagan era social and economic reconstruction (1981-1988). Samad is currently the host of the Urban Issues Forum of Greater Los Angeles, a monthly public affairs forum that discusses critical issues impacting American's urban cities.

Souls For Sale

by John Frederick Whitehead, Souls For Sale Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Souls For Sale books, In 1773, John Frederick Whitehead and Johann Carl B]ttner, two young German men, arrived in America on the same ship. Each man sold himself into servitude to a different master, and, years later, each wrote a memoir of his experiences, leaving invaluable historical records of their attitudes, perceptions, and goals. Despite their common voyage to America and similar working conditions as servants, their backgrounds and personalities differed. Their divergent interpretations of their experiences are the substance of rich and varied firsthand accounts of the transatlantic migration process, the servant labor experience of Germans in colonial America, and post-servitude life. Souls for Sale presents these parallel memoirs -- Whitehead's published here for the first time -- to illustrate the condition of German redemptioners as well as their religious, familial, and literary contexts during a crucial period of migration in Europe and America. The editors provide helpful introductions to the works as well as notes to guide the reader.

Hollywood By Hollywood

by Steven Cohan, Hollywood By Hollywood Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Hollywood By Hollywood books, The backstudio picture, or the movie about movie-making, is a staple of Hollywood film production harking back to the silent era and extending to the present day. What gives backstudios their coherence as a distinctive genre, Steven Cohan argues in Hollywood by Hollywood, is their fascination with the mystique of Hollywood as a geographic place, a self-contained industry, and a fantasy of fame, leisure, sexual freedom, and modernity. Yet by the same token, if backstudio pictures have rarely achieved blockbuster box-office success, what accounts for the film industry's interest in continuing to produce them? The backstudio picture has been an enduring genre because, aside from offering a director or writer a chance to settle old scores, in branding filmmaking with the Hollywood mystique, the genre solicits consumers' strong investment in the movies. Whether inspiring the "movie crazy" fan girls of the early teens and twenties or the wannabe filmmakers of this century heading to the West Coast after their college graduations, backstudios have given emotional weight and cultural heft to filmmaking as the quintessential American success story. But more than that, a backstudio picture is concerned with shaping perceptions of how the film industry works, with masking how its product depends upon an industrial labor force, including stardom, and with determining how that work's value accrues from the Hollywood brand stamped onto the product. Cohan supports his well theorized and well researched claims with nuanced discussions of over fifty backstudios, some canonical and well-known, and others obscure and rarely seen. Covering the hundred-year timespan of feature length film production, Hollywood by Hollywood offers an illuminating perspective for considering anew the history of American movies.
