Drawing on the postmodern perspective and concerns that informed her groundbreaking Terpischore in Sneakers, Sally Bane’s Writing Dancing documents the background and development of avant-garde and popular dance, analyzing individual artists, performances, and entire dance movements. With a sure grasp of shifting cultural dynamics, Banes shows how postmodern dance is integrally connected to other oppositional, often marginalized strands of dance culture, and considers how certain kinds of dance move from the margins to the mainstream. Banes begins by considering the act of dance criticism itself, exploring its modes, methods, and underlying assumptions and examining the work of other critics. She traces the development of contemporary dance from the early work of such influential figures as Merce Cunningham and George Balanchine to such contemporary choreographers as Molissa Fenley, Karole Armitage, and Michael Clark. She analyzes the contributions of the Judson Dance Theatre and the Workers’ Dance League, the emergence of Latin postmodern dance in New York, and the impact of black jazz in Russia. In addition, Banes explores such untraditional performance modes as breakdancing and the “drunk dancing” of Fred Astaire. Ebook Edition Note: All images have been redacted.

This is the first academic study of sneakers and the subculture that surrounds them. Since the 1980s, American sneaker enthusiasts, popularly known as "sneakerheads?? or "sneakerholics??, have created a distinctive identity for themselves, while sneaker manufacturers such as Reebok, Puma and Nike have become global fashion brands. How have sneakers come to gain this status and what makes them fashionable? In what ways are sneaker subcultures bound up with gender identity and why are sneakerholics mostly young men? Based on the author's own ethnographic fieldwork in New York, where sneaker subculture is said to have originated, this unique study traces the transformation of sneakers from sportswear to fashion symbol. Sneakers explores the obsessions and idiosyncrasies surrounding the sneaker phenomenon, from competitive subcultures to sneaker painting and artwork. It is a valuable contribution to the growing study of footwear in fashion studies and will appeal to students of fashion theory, gender studies, sociology, and popular culture.

This is not your mother's Nancy Drew. Randi Guseberri is the leader of The Pink Sneakers Club, an aspiring wannabe detective, who's always got a plan. Kaye West is the tough, Goth girl with a personality that's always covered in sarcasm and quick wit, and an absolute whiz when it comes to computers. Caren James is the typical blond hair blue-eyed beauty, with her ballerina posture and stolid gaze, she's often pegged as arrogant or aloof. And last but not least is Deirdre Brocktin, the shy, quiet science geek. On an ordinary Thursday afternoon at 3:05 pm the Chemical Plant across the river sounds its horn indicating a shift change . . . followed by a scream. Belinda Johnson falls from the school roof, her body slamming onto the hood of a parked SUV. The primary suspect - her Quarterback boyfriend Mark Harris. Now the girls will race to find out what happened to Belinda and help Mark Harris who has been arrested. But as they get closer to the truth they realize that all is not as it seems. Randi, Caren, Kaye and Deirdre will be plunged into a conspiracy that could threaten their very lives unless they uncover the truth in time. The Pink Sneakers Club is a fast paced story with rich characters and witty dialogue narrated in the voice of each girl. It has some of the tried and true stereotypes one comes to rely on in mystery stories, with several twists and turns that make it brilliantly unique. With its detail and violence, this book is not for the faint of heart.

We Had Sneakers, They Had Guns

The Kids Who Fought for Civil Rights in Mississippi

No one experienced the 1964 Freedom Summer quite like Tracy Sugarman. As an illustrator and journalist, Sugarman covered the nearly one thousand student volunteers who traveled to the Mississippi Delta to assist black citizens in the South in registering to vote. He interviewed these activists, along with local civil rights leaders and black and white residents not directly involved in the movement, and drew the people and events that made the summer one of the most heroic chapters in America’s long march toward racial justice. In We Had Sneakers, They Had Guns, Sugarman chronicles the sacrifices, tragedies, and triumphs of that unprecedented moment in our nation’s history. Two white students and one black student were slain in the struggle, many were beaten and hundreds arrested, and churches and homes were burned to the ground by the opponents of equality. Yet the example of Freedom Summer— whites united with heroic black Mississippians to challenge apartheid—resonated across the nation. The United States Congress was finally moved to pass the civil rights legislation that enfranchised the millions of black Americans who had been waiting for equal rights for a century.
