Marla Morris, Georgia Southern University3-1-2001
Georgia Southern University faculty member Marla B. Morris authored Curriculum and the Holocaust: Competing Sites of Memory and Representation.
Book Summary: In this book, Morris explores the intersection of curriculum studies, Holocaust studies, and psychoanalysis, using the Holocaust to raise issues of memory and representation. Arguing that memory is the larger category under which history is subsumed, she examines the ways in which the Holocaust is represented in texts written by historians and by novelists. For both, psychological transference, repression, denial, projection, and reversal contribute heavily to shaping personal memories, and may therefore determine the ways in which they construct ...

Robert Pirro, Georgia Southern University2001
Georgia Southern University faculty member Robert Pirro authored Hannah Arendt and the Politics of Tragedy.
A German Jewish refugee suffering tremendous personal and political upheaval during the years of Nazi conquest, Hannah Arendt turned to classical literature and drama as she struggled to make sense of the terrible events of her time. Studying fiction, plays, and poetry, she found a way to meld theoretical political philosophy and concrete personal commitment to action. Among her literary resources, the epics and plays of ancient Greece provided the ideal balance of politics and culture.
In Hannah Arendt and the Politics of Tragedy, Pirro focuses ... Read more

Ronald W. Cox, Florida International University and Daniel Skidmore-Hess, Georgia Southern University1999
This thoughtful, highly original book investigates the influence of globalization on ideology and politics in the United States.
Cox and Skidmore-Hess argue that U.S. policy increasingly has been motivated less by anxiety about the independence and stability of the domestic economy and more by worry about factors that might limit the participation of U.S. corporations in international markets. Connecting trends in domestic and foreign policy with the changing needs of industry, they associate increased globalization with the the breakup of the liberal, New Deal coalition; the collapse of the Bretton Woods Agreement in the 1970s; the neoconservative, antiregulatory movements of ...

William L. Smith, Georgia Southern University8-27-1999
This book focuses specifically on the role of the family in communal life. Communal groups are one type of nontraditional families, some communes are predisposed to families while others are not and some communal families can be replacements or substitutes for nuclear families. Historic communal groups such as Shakers, Oneida, Amana, and the Mormons are investigated as are contemporary rural and urban communal groups such as Twin Oaks, Jesus People USA, and the Hutterites.
