Description : This literary companion surveys the works of Lee Smith, a Southern author lauded for her autobiographical familiarity with Appalachian settings and characters. Her dialogue captures the distinct voices of mountain people and their perceptions of local and world events, ranging from the Civil War to ecology and modernization. Mental and physical disability and the Southern cultural norm of including the disabled as both family and community members are recurring themes in Smith’s writing. An A to Z arrangement of entries incorporates specific titles, and themes such as belonging, healing and death, humor, parenting and religion.

Description : In this important study, Rebecca Smith (no relation to the author of this study) uses language theory and feminist critical theory to examine Lee Smith's "critique" of gender ideology in her fiction. This book charts Lee Smith's fictional exploration of the cultural devaluation of women and of the traditional romance plot. An in-depth look at Smith's appropriation of male myth, images and language, all of which she uses to deconstruct traditional gender arrangements, the work chronologically covers Lee Smith's first nine novels and her two short story collections.

Description : Painter Hughie Lee-Smith (1915-1999) sought to transform his experiences growing up as an African American during the Great Depression into meditations on the human condition. In each of Lee-Smith's enigmatic compositions, barren landscapes, lone figures, and contrasting juxtapositions elicit many questions that lead the viewer to self-reflection. "I cannot begin to project the meaning of my work in specific terms," Lee-Smith said, "for these paintings, at their best, are multi-faceted visual complexes whose many aspects are pregnant with as many disparate meanings as there are viewers." Active in the art scenes of Cleveland, Detroit, and Chicago, Lee-Smith found inspiration in the New Negro Movement-Harlem Renaissance and nurtured his artistic talents early by participating in the Works Progress Administration/Federal Art Project. While he objected to strict definitions of "black art," his personal struggles with race identity, social justice, and alienation became recurring themes in his paintings throughout his career. At times a realist and at times a romantic, Hughie Lee-Smith captured the uncertainty of a generation caught between memories of the past and the promises of the future. The eighth volume in Pomegranate's critically acclaimed David C. Driskell Series of African American Art, Hughie Lee-Smith presents nearly sixty color plates from the artist's profound oeuvre. Author Leslie King-Hammond considers the powerful experiences that shaped Lee-Smith's vision, while a comprehensive chronology by Aiden Faust further informs the context of the artist's work. With historical family photographs, excerpts from Lee-Smith's own writings, and an insightful foreword by David C. Driskell, Hughie Lee-Smith provides an intimate look at one of the twentieth century's most distinguished artists.

Description : This book is volume 1 of a set containing conversations the author has had with hundreds of people on LinkedIn on the subject of Enterprise Architecture. Subsequent volumes continue the discussion from where it left of in the previous version. There are no dates as such, but the set generally covers 2010 to 2014 at which point I stopped because I had been put on moderation or banned from most of the groups where discussions were going on that it was pointless to continue. They had won. I have published it not necessarily so people can see the content (although that is useful in itself) but more because I think it's useful for people to witness how these debates "work." Perhaps it would be useful as a Psychology analysis regarding how online conversations are conducted. Also, parts of it are quite funny;-)

Description : Power in the Blood: A Family Narrative traces Linda Tate’s journey to rediscover the Cherokee-Appalachian branch of her family and provides an unflinching examination of the poverty, discrimination, and family violence that marked their lives. In her search for the truth of her own past, Tate scoured archives, libraries, and courthouses throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois, and Missouri, visited numerous cemeteries, and combed through census records, marriage records, court cases, local histories, old maps, and photographs. As she began to locate distant relatives — fifth, sixth, seventh cousins, all descended from her great-greatgrandmother Louisiana — they gathered in kitchens and living rooms, held family reunions, and swapped stories. A past that had long been buried slowly came to light as family members shared the pieces of the family’s tale that had been passed along to them. Power in the Blood is a dramatic family history that reads like a novel, as Tate’s compelling narrative reveals one mystery after another. Innovative and groundbreaking in its approach to research and storytelling, Power in the Blood shows that exploring a family story can enhance understanding of history, life, and culture and that honest examination of the past can lead to healing and liberation in the present.
