Life, Letters and Speeches

George Copway (Kahgegagahbowh, 1818?69), an Ojibwe writer and lecturer, rose to prominence in American literary, political, and social circles during the mid-nineteenth century. His colorful, kaleidoscopic life took him from the tiny Ojibwe village of his youth to the halls of state legislatures throughout the eastern United States and eventually overseas. Copway converted to Methodism as a teenager and traveled throughout the Midwest as a missionary, becoming a forceful and energetic spokesperson for temperance and the rights and sovereignty of Indians, lecturing to large crowds in the United States and Europe, and founding a newspaper devoted to Native issues. ø One of the first Native American autobiographies, Life, Letters and Speeches chronicles Copway's unique and often difficult cultural journey, vividly portraying the freedom of his early childhood, the dramatic moment of his spiritual awakening to Methodism, the rewards and frustrations of missionary work, his desperate race home to warn of a pending Sioux attack, and the harrowing rescue of his son from drowning.

True Sex

The Lives of Trans Men at the Turn of the Twentieth Century

The incredible stories of how trans men assimilated into mainstream communities in the late 1800s. In 1883, Frank Dubois gained national attention for his life in Waupun, Wisconsin. There he was known as a hard-working man, married to a young woman named Gertrude Fuller. What drew national attention to his seemingly unremarkable life was that he was revealed to be anatomically female. Dubois fit so well within the small community that the townspeople only discovered his “true sex” when his former husband and their two children arrived in the town searching in desperation for their departed wife and mother. At the turn of the twentieth century, trans men were not necessarily urban rebels seeking to overturn stifling gender roles. In fact, they often sought to pass as conventional men, choosing to live in small towns where they led ordinary lives, aligning themselves with the expectations of their communities. They were, in a word, unexceptional. In True Sex, Emily Skidmore uncovers the stories of eighteen trans men who lived in the United States between 1876 and 1936. Despite their “unexceptional” quality, their lives are surprising and moving, challenging much of what we think we know about queer history. By tracing the narratives surrounding the moments of “discovery” in these communities – from reports in local newspapers to medical journals and beyond -- this book challenges the assumption that the full story of modern American sexuality is told by cosmopolitan radicals. Rather, True Sex reveals complex narratives concerning rural geography and community, persecution and tolerance, and how these factors intersect with the history of race, identity and sexuality in America.

Eine totgesagte Schuhmarke, die über Nacht zum ultimativ angesagten Modeartikel wird. Ein neu eröffnetes Restaurant, das sofort zum absoluten Renner wird. Der Roman einer unbekannten Autorin, der ohne Werbung zum Bestseller wird. Für den magischen Moment, der eine Lawine lostreten und einen neuen Trend begründen kann, gibt es zahlreiche Beispiele. Wie ein Virus breitet sich das Neue einer Epidemie gleich unaufhaltsam flächendeckend aus. So wie eine einzelne kranke Person eine Grippewelle auslösen kann, genügt ein winziger, gezielter Schubs, um einen Modetrend zu setzen, ein neues Produkt als Massenware durchzusetzen oder die Kriminalitätsrate in einer Großstadt zu senken. „Tipping Point“ zeigt, wie wenig Aufwand zu einem Mega-Erfolg führen kann.

Dabei hilft eine Grifftabelle, die für jede Übung anzeigt, wo die Finger hinmüssen. Der Autor erklärt außerdem, wie man seine Mundharmonika reparieren oder sogar im Klang verbessern kann und gibt Empfehlungen zu verschiedenen Mundharmonika-Alben.
