Description : In an increasingly globalized world, place matters more than ever. Nowhere is that more true than in Appalachian studies -- a field which brings scholars, activists, artists, and citizens together around a region to contest misappropriations of resources and power and combat stereotypes of isolation and intolerance. In Appalachian studies, the diverse ways in which place is invoked, the person who invokes it, and the reasons behind that invocation all matter greatly. In Appalachia in Regional Context: Place Matters, Dwight B. Billings and Ann E. Kingsolver bring together voices from a variety of disciplines to broaden the conversation. The book begins with chapters challenging conventional representations of Appalachia by exploring the relationship between regionalism, globalism, activism, and everyday experience theoretically. Other chapters examine foodways, depictions of Appalachia in popular culture, and the experiences of rural LGBTQ youth. Poems by renowned social critic bell hooks interleave the chapters and add context to reflections on the region. Drawing on cultural anthropology, sociology, geography, media studies, political science, gender and women's studies, ethnography, social theory, art, music, literature and regional studies pedagogy, this volume furthers the exploration of new perspectives on one of America's most compelling and misunderstood regions.

Description : In this collection of fourteen essays, scholars of Appalachian culture and society examine how the people contend with and adapt to the pressures of change thrust upon them. Appalachia and America will appeal to a broad range of people interested in the southern mountains or in the policy issues of social welfare. It deals cogently with the newest form of conflict affecting not only communities in Appalachia, but urban and rural communities in America at large -- the struggle for local values and ways of life in the face of distant and powerful bureaucracies.

Description : The Appalachian region of North America is a Paleozoic geological mountain belt or orogen occupying a position peripheral to the continent's stable interior craton. The Appalachian miogeocline and its extensions such as those found in Greenland form an open-ended continental margin. This volume details the geology of the Appalachian and related Greenland Caledonian Orogens, with a focus on the Canadian Appalachian Orogen. It describes the rocks of the Canadian Appalachian region under four broad temporal divisions: Lower Paleozoic and older, Middle Paleozoic, Upper Paleozoic, and Mesozoic. Separate sections cover the geophysical characteristics of the Orogen, plutonic rocks, metallogeny, paleontological contributions to Paleozoic paleogeographic and tectonic reconstructions, and East Greenland Caledonides. The volume is also intended as a report of progress in Appalachian geological research.
