Download Free Richard M. Weaver, 1910-1963 PDF by Fred Douglas Young Full Book and published by University of Missouri Press. This book was released on 1995 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Young accomplishes this by using Weaver's own writings on scholarship and by discussing his most representative and significant essays and books - Ideas Have Consequences, Language Is Sermonic, and others. Young also interviews the people who were closest to Weaver: Russell Kirk; Cleanth Brooks; Clifford Amyx, an artist and intellectual; his sister Polly Weaver Beaton; and Professor Wilma R. Ebbitt, a colleague and friend during Weaver's years at the University of Chicago. Although many have associated Weaver with the Vanderbilt Agrarians and have stereotyped him as a conservative, this work makes plain that Weaver cannot be seen simply and wholly in this light. Many of the stands Weaver took, such as opposing the registration of Communists during the McCarthy era, set him apart from the conservative mainstream and made people of many different political persuasions respect his ideas.
Download Free The Vision of Richard Weaver PDF by Joseph A. Scotchie Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-04-27 with total page 245 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Richard M. Weaver was one of the founders of modern conservatism. He is an enduring intellectual figure of twentieth-century America.

The Vision of Richard Weaver is the first collection of essays about this seminal thinker. Thirty years after his untimely death, Richard Weaver remains a heroic figure to many conservatives and traditionalists concerned about the state of American culture. Now a new generation of readers can understand the importance of this pioneer of thought. The Vision of Richard Weaver will be of significant value to political theorists, philosophers, and students of American civilization.
Download Free Robert Clifton Weaver and the American City PDF by Wendell E. Pritchett Full Book and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2010-02-15 with total page 444 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From his role as Franklin Roosevelt’s “negro advisor” to his appointment under Lyndon Johnson as the first secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Robert Clifton Weaver was one of the most influential domestic policy makers and civil rights advocates of the twentieth century. This volume, the first biography of the first African American to hold a cabinet position in the federal government, rescues from obscurity the story of a man whose legacy continues to affect American race relations and the cities in which they largely play out. Tracing Weaver’s career through the creation, expansion, and contraction of New Deal liberalism, Wendell E. Pritchett illuminates his instrumental role in the birth of almost every urban initiative of the period, from public housing and urban renewal to affirmative action and rent control. Beyond these policy achievements, Weaver also founded racial liberalism, a new approach to race relations that propelled him through a series of high-level positions in public and private agencies working to promote racial cooperation in American cities. But Pritchett shows that despite Weaver’s efforts to make race irrelevant, white and black Americans continued to call on him to mediate between the races—a position that grew increasingly untenable as Weaver remained caught between the white power structure to which he pledged his allegiance and the African Americans whose lives he devoted his career to improving.

Book excerpt: The Weaver's Dream was first published in paperback under the name Donna Baker. London, 1824. Life has taken Rebecca far from her humble start in a weaver's cottage in Kidderminster. But although she has found love and comfort with her husband, Francis, it has meant they are both banished from the town that raised them. Instead they must raise their family - and a new business in the bustle of the capital. But when a death finally draws them home to Worcestershire, they find the landscape unchanged, but the poverty increased. Amid the smoke of the factories and the clatter of machinery there is also the growing murmur of unrest as the workers search for a way to express their discontent. For Rebecca, Francis and their young family it means being torn between family duty and sympathy for the weavers' plight. And while they have a dream for the future, will it be strong enough to survive the turmoil ahead?
Download Free The Weaver's Craft PDF by Adrienne D. Hood Full Book and published by University of Pennsylvania Press. This book was released on 2011-01-01 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cloth was one of the most important commodities in the early modern world, and colonial North Americans had to develop creative strategies to acquire it. Although early European settlers came from societies in which hand textile production was central to the economy, local conditions in North America interacted with traditional craft structures to create new patterns of production and consumption. The Weaver's Craft examines the development of cloth manufacture in early Pennsylvania from its roots in seventeenth-century Europe to the beginning of industrialization. Adrienne D. Hood's focus on Pennsylvania and the long sweep of history yields a new understanding of the complexities of early American fabric production and the regional variations that led to distinct experiences of industrialization. Drawing on an extensive array of primary sources, combined with a quantitative approach, the author argues that in contrast to New England, rural Pennsylvania women spun the yarn that a small group of trained male artisans wove into cloth on a commercial basis throughout the eighteenth century. Their production was considerably augmented by consumers purchasing cheap cloth from Europe and Asia, making them active participants in a global marketplace. Hood's painstaking research and numerous illustrations of textile equipment, swatch books, and consumer goods will be of interest to both scholars and craftspeople.

Book excerpt: The Weaver's Glory was first published in paperback under the name Donna Baker. It is 1837. When Rebecca looks back at her life, she has seen much change - and much sorrow. Still young, it is hard for her to believe she has gone from scullery maid to mistress of Pagnel House. But without her husband at her side, can she make the dreams they had for the future still come true? Still reeling from her loss, she must find a way of carrying on. Her husband's cousin, Vivian, is appalled at the idea of a woman running a business. Should she - for the sake of her sons and her business - accept Vivian's offer of marriage? It will take all her strength and all her courage to discover where her future lies - and whether it is rooted in the land and people around her, or if the memory of a man now toiling on the other side of the world in Australia will change her destiny.

This book was released on 2022-09-09T22:59:00Z with total page 42 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 She did it all. And then some. Martha’s duties were so heavy that she was often called the most competent female in the neighborhood. Martha’s single minded devotion to her family’s success was such that she had little time for socializing and no desire to do so. Martha was a stay-at-home mom, but she didn’t wish to just sit around. She was busy building the foundation of her family’s wealth—all while raising seven children and running the household. Not long ago, I read a book about a woman named Harriet Beecher Stowe. She was the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which told the story of a group of slaves who escaped to freedom in the North and became an important tool in the fight against slavery. As a young girl, Harriet wanted to be a teacher, but her family could not afford it. Instead, she became a teacher’s assistant, and later opened an academy of her own. Because her husband had died young, she needed to support her growing family as well as pay for her own education. By age 21, she had published two books and had become a sought-after speaker. #2 You’re a Mary, and you’re in a Martha world. #3 We’ve all felt the struggle between Mary and Martha. We want to worship like Mary, but the Martha inside keeps bossing us around. #4 You are a Mary, and you’re in a Martha world. You want to be like Mary, but the Martha inside keeps bossing you around.

Download Free Barbarians in the Saddle PDF by Joseph Scotchie Full Book and published by Transaction Publishers. This book was released on 1997-01-01 with total page 161 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Barbarians in the Saddle is Joseph Scotchie's intellectual biography of Richard M. Weaver. It is an in-depth study of each of Weaver's published works and an examination of the significant influence he had on the formation of conservative America. Ideas Have Consequences and Visions of Order examine the problem of life in "megalopolis" where the best of everything is promised to the restless masses by their leaders and a cradle-to-grave social security state results in dangerous levels of decadence, resentment, and the loss of civility and culture. In The Southern Tradition at Bay and other essays on the American South, Weaver expresses his preference for the nonmaterialistic, virtuous ethos of the Old South. Finally, The Ethics of Rhetoric highlights Weaver's devotion to a discipline increasingly out of favor with academia. Barbarians in the Saddle will be of significant value to political theorists, philosophers, and students of American civilization.
