Kansas

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/kansas-10...
Back in 1915, Snowden D. Flora of the US Weather Bureau wrote, "Kansas has been so commonly considered the tornado state of the country that the term 'Kansas cyclone' has almost become a part of the English language." Flora's words still seem to ring true. Whether called a twister, a tornado, a vortex, or cyclone, these catastrophic events have shaped lives in the Sunflower State for generations. Just a few destructive moments forever changed places such as Irving, Udall, Topeka, Andover, and Greensburg. Even before Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz helped equate the tornado with Kansas, the turbulent nature of local weather seemed to parallel an equally turbulent history, with the fury of people such as John Brown compared to a cyclone. Even if they have never seen a funnel cloud themselves, those who live in Kansas have come to accept the twister as a regular and always unpredictable neighbor.

The 2012 Presidential Campaign

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-2012-presidential-campa...
Presidential campaigns are our national conversations - the widespread and complex communication of issues, images, social reality, and personas. Political communication specialists break down the 2012 presidential campaign and go beyond the quantitative facts, electoral counts, and poll results of the election, to make sense of the "political bits" of communication that comprise our voting choices. The contributors look at the early campaign period, the nomination process and conventions, the social and political contexts, the debates, the role of candidate spouses, candidate strategies, political strategies, and the use of the Internet and other technologies.

The Housewife Assassin's Killer 3-Book Set

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-housewife-assassin-s-ki...
3 Full-Length Novels, by Josie Brown Murder. Suspense. Sex. And some handy household tips. THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN'S HANDBOOK (Book 1) Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one-and it happens to be government-sanctioned. She earned it the hard way: her husband was killed the day she delivered her third child. To avenge his death, she leads a secret life - as an assassin. But when terrorism hits close to home, it makes for strange bedfellows - and brings new meaning to the old adage, "Honey, I'm home." THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN'S GUIDE TO GRACIOUS KILLING (Book 2) Donna and Jack are in the kind of hot mess that can cause an international incident. A nuclear arms summit, hosted by a politically-connected American billionaire industrialist, provides the perfect opportunity for a rogue operative to assassinate of the newly-elected Russian president on US soil. Acme operative Donna Stone's mission: seek and exterminate the shooter, before all hell-and World War III-break loose. Also on Donna's to-do list: file for divorce. Throw in a couple of play dates and a few naughty neighbors, you've got a whole lot of fun. THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN'S DEADLY DOSSIER (Full-Length Prequel) Acme Industries black-ops agent Jack Craig is tasked with investigating the mysterious death of his organization's most prolific hit man, Carl Stone, only to fall in love with the dead man's wife, Donna-a woman he must never contact, but who may hold the key to her husband's disappearance. When Acme approaches Donna to join their organization as an assassin, Jack's undercover mission will change both their lives forever.

Educational Opportunity in Rural Contexts: The Politics of Place

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/educational-opportunity-in-...
A volume in Research in Educational Policy: Local, National, and Global Perspectives Series Editor: Kenneth K. Wong, Brown University The impetus behind this volume stems from reflections on commemorations of the historic Brown v. Board of Education decision. Brown turned 60 in May of 2014, and many special issues of peer-reviewed journals were dedicated to that anniversary. Unlike most special issues and volumes, we sought to highlight a smaller part of Brown, though no less significant. More specifically, we thought to develop a volume that focused on rural education in the aftermath of the decision. Most of the education policy and education reform literature caters to urban and suburban contexts, and very few academic books and journal articles-with the exception of research conducted by Craig, Amy, and Caitlin Howley and the Journal for Research on Rural Education-focus on rural education in the US. Thus, we wanted this volume to focus on the politics of educational opportunity in rural contexts. There is a paucity of rigorous research that examines how education policy affects the conditions of rural education. More specifically, research is scarce in examining the ways in which students in rural schools and districts have access to educational opportunities, although approximately one-third of all public schools are located in rural areas (Ayers, 2011). Educational opportunity in rural districts has been plagued by geographic isolation, loss of economic bases, and lack of capital (both financial and political) to voice the need for resources. To be clear, this volume does not present chapters that detail educational opportunity in rural districts and schools from a deficit perspective. Instead, chapters in this volume offer insight into both micro- and macro-level policies and practices that shape educational opportunities for students in rural schools and districts. As such, chapters in this volume investigate the "now" of educa-tional opportunity for rural

Transforming Places

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/transforming-places-1...
In this era of globalization's ruthless deracination, place attachments have become increasingly salient in collective mobilizations across the spectrum of politics. Like place-based activists in other resource-rich yet impoverished regions across the globe, Appalachians are contesting economic injustice, environmental degradation, and the anti-democratic power of elites. This collection of seventeen original essays by scholars and activists from a variety of backgrounds explores this wide range of oppositional politics, querying its successes, limitations, and impacts. The editors' critical introduction and conclusion integrate theories of place and space with analyses of organizations and events discussed by contributors. Transforming Places illuminates widely relevant lessons about building coalitions and movements with sufficient strength to challenge corporate-driven globalization. Contributors are Fran Ansley, Yaira Andrea Arias Soto, Dwight B. Billings, M. Kathryn Brown, Jeannette Butterworth, Paul Castelloe, Aviva Chomsky, Dave Cooper, Walter Davis, Meredith Dean, Elizabeth C. Fine, Jenrose Fitzgerald, Doug Gamble, Nina Gregg, Edna Gulley, Molly Hemstreet, Mary Hufford, Ralph Hutchison, Donna Jones, Ann Kingsolver, Sue Ella Kobak, Jill Kriesky, Michael E.

That Hoodoo, Voodoo That You Do: A Dark Rituals Anthology

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/that-hoodoo-voodoo-that-you...
Rituals have always been a powerful part of human life, from the ancient Aztec nation's human sacrifices to the simple act of brushing one's teeth in the morning. They can impart a sense of history, comfort, community, stability and at other times, power, mystery and horror. Some are grounded in centuries of tradition or superstition, while others are unique, individual creations. In this collection of 22 stories, you'll find the darker side of ritual in all the various forms you can imagine-from the ancient and ceremonial to the simple and homegrown. Some have real power, while others simply exist in the convoluted recesses of someone's mind. Some produce the desired effect, while others have an entirely different result. What binds them all together is the simple truth of any good ritual. Their practitioners - and you, the reader - just might forever be changed by them.

Florida

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/florida-20...
FLORIDA proposes Florida as a nexus of various contested moments, ideas, concepts, and relations. In the age of networks, it is not enough to only think of computerized, economic, or labor intensive systems as networks. As Bruno Latour writes, networks are represented in ways other than graphic visualizations or visualizations of spokes and connections. Spaces, too, are networks, and specific spaces, such as Florida, are networks in need of exploring and understanding so that we better understand how politics, ideology, economics, race, and other moments come into being and affect each other within the representations we circulate. Editor Jeff Rice and contributors argue that we need to rethink taxonomies of spaces, moving from static entities to shifting networks of meaning. Contributors demonstrate how Florida is a space for composing and inventing fresh responses that traditional images and representations of Florida do not provoke. They explore the intersection of various Florida moments to trace the ways spaces can be written, and the compositional space of Florida, broadened. Contributors include James P. Beasley, Cassandra Branham, Lillie Anne Brown, Bradley Dilger, Sidney I. Dobrin, David M. Grant, Charlie Hailey, Megan McIntyre, Lauren Mitchell, Sean Morey, Steve Newman, Jeff Rice, Craig Saper, Todd Taylor, Adam Trowbridge, Gregory L. Ulmer, and Jessica Westbrook. JEFF RICE is the Martha B. Reynolds Professor of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies at the University of Kentucky. He is the author of The Rhetoric of Cool: Composition Studies and New Media and Digital Detroit: Rhetoric and Space in the Age of the Network. His work has appeared in numerous journals and edited collections. He specializes in new media, rhetorics of space, pedagogy, rhetoric, and writing studies.
