"Set in the American Southwest, "desert terror" films combine elements from horror, film noir and road movies to tell stories of isolation and violence. These films have eluded critical classification and analysis. The author traces the genre's origins and development, from cult exploitation to crowd-pleasing franchises to quirky auteurist fare to more recent releases"--

Family and Civilization is the magnum opus of Carle Zimmerman, a distinguished sociologist who taught for many years at Harvard University. In this unjustly forgotten work Zimmerman demonstrates the close and causal connections between the rise and fall of different types of families and the rise and fall of civilizations, particularly ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and modern Europe, and the United States. Zimmerman traces the evolution of family structure from tribes and clans to extended and large nuclear families to the small nuclear families and broken families of today. And he shows the consequences of each structure for the bearing and rearing of children; for religion, law, and everyday life; and for the fate of civilization itself. Originally published in 1947, this compelling analysis predicted many of today’s cultural and social controversies and trends, including youth violence and depression, abortion and homosexuality, the demographic collapse of Europe and of the West more generally, and the displacement of peoples. This new edition, part of ISI Books’ Background series, has been edited and abridged by cultural commentator James Kurth of Swarthmore College and includes essays on the text by Kurth, Allan Carlson, and Bryce Christensen.

The Western Story: A Chronological Treasury consists of twenty Western stories spanning the years 1892 to 1994. For that generation of American writers who saw the frontier in the last century?including Mark Twain, Bret Harte, and Owen Wister?it seemed exotic, strange, wonderful. Others, such as Frederic Remington and John G. Neihardt, reflected the clash between various Indian nations and pioneers. These authors prepared the way for the founders of the first Golden Age of the Western story: Willa Cather, who wrote of pioneer life in Nebraska; Zane Grey, who combined wilderness experiences with romance and the search for spiritual truth; B. M. Bower, who portrayed the cowboys and frontier women she knew growing up in Montana; Max Brand, who created dramas in which the psychological and spiritual meaning of life was more important than the physical terrain; and Ernest Haycox, who combined character and drama with historical accuracy. ø Another generation of writers perpetuated this first Golden Age: Peter Dawson and T. T. Flynn, who began writing Western stories in the 1930s; Walter Van Tilburg Clark, who created a masterpiece in The Ox-Bow Incident; Dorothy M. Johnson and Les Savage Jr., who experimented with making the Western story still more realistic; and Louis L?Amour, whose visibility and popularity won legions of new readers to the genre. ø Humanity, depth, and verisimilitude were already part of the Western story when Will Henry, Elmer Kelton, and T. V. Olsen came on the scene to intensify these qualities in their own stories even as they experimented with new perspectives. And Cynthia Haseloff?s story (written especially for this collection), with its symbolism and its simplicity, may be the harbinger of a second Golden Age.

Zane Grey is an American icon, the premier chronicler of the West, and the writer who first brought the frontier to life in all its gritty glory. In this classic western, frontier legend Buffalo Jones won't back down from the most dangerous hunt of all. . . Big, brash and fearless, Buffalo Jones is in pursuit of the greatest mountain lion ever spotted in the remote Arizona desert. Determined to bring the beast home alive, Jones leads a colorful band of brothers into a wild land, across the Colorado River to Buckskin Mountain at the red mesa rim of the Grand Canyon. But while Jones has foresworn all killing, even smashed his rifle on a wagon wheel in a vow to save the species, he and his men are entering a fight for their lives. If Apaches, stampedes of wild horses or rattlesnakes don't get them, another enemy will: roaming packs of the one beast who fears no man. . . "In a changing world it is comforting. . .and entertaining to spend a little while in the company of Zane Grey." --New York Times "Zane Grey epitomized the mythical West that should have been." --True West "Grey was a champion of the American wilderness and the men and women who tamed the Old West."--Booklist
