Lullabies for Lieutenants Book Excerpt:

Capturing the chaotic nature of the U.S. Marine experience at war in Vietnam, this memoir recounts the experiences of a young officer in a series of unrelated short pieces. In a narrative as fragmented as the war itself, the only resolution is the same one reached by the Marines who fought—the conclusion of a tour of duty with no happy ending. Each chapter describes a specific event, a story of emotion, or a remarkable person (some are heroes, some are cowards). The reader lives the experience alongside the author, gaining a true sense of the pulse-pounding contact, surrealism, pathos, humor, and beauty that defined one of the low points of the American experience.

Charred Lullabies Book Excerpt:

How does an ethnographer write about violence? How can he make sense of violent acts, for himself and for his readers, without compromising its sheer excess and its meaning-defying core? How can he remain a scholarly observer when the country of his birth is engulfed by terror? These are some of the questions that engage Valentine Daniel in this exploration of life and death in contemporary Sri Lanka. In 1983 Daniel "walked into the ashes and mortal residue" of the violence that had occurred in his homeland. His planned project--the study of women's folk songs as ethnohistory--was immediately displaced by the responsibility that he felt had been given to him, by surviving family members and friends of victims, to recount beyond Sri Lanka what he had seen and heard there. Trained to do fieldwork by staying in one place and educated to look for coherence and meaning in human behavior, what does an anthropologist do when he is forced by circumstances to keep moving, searching for reasons he never finds? How does he write an ethnography (or an anthropography, to use the author's term) without transforming it into a pornography of violence? In avoiding fattening the anthropography into prurience, how does he avoid flattening it with theory? The ways in which Daniel grapples with these questions, and their answers, instill this groundbreaking book with a rare sense of passion, purpose, and intellect.

Battle Cries and Lullabies Book Excerpt:

In this groundbreaking work, which covers thousands of years and spans the globe, Linda Grant De Pauw depicts women as victims and as warriors; as nurses, spies, sex workers, and wives and mothers of soldiers; as warrior queens leading armies into battle; and as baggage carriers marching in the rear. Beginning with the earliest archaeological evidence of warfare and ending with the dozens of wars in progress today, Battle Cries and Lullabies demonstrates that warfare has always and everywhere involved women. Following an introductory chapter on the questions raised about women’s participation in warfare, the book presents a documented, chronological survey linked to familiar models of military history. De Pauw provides historical context for current public policy debates over the role of women in the military. "Whether one applauds or deplores their presence and their actions, women have always been part of war. To ignore this fact grossly distorts our understanding of human history."

Weird Lullabies Book Excerpt:

This book focuses on the mother-daughter relationship as it features in a number of films from the 1990s onwards. Bringing the insights of psychoanalysis and feminism to bear on a diverse and compelling range of representations of the mother-daughter dynamic, the author addresses a range of questions relating to the social, historical and cultural conditions which go to inform the female experience. These include, in relation to Dolores Claiborne, Heavenly Creatures and The Others, an exploration of different forms of familial violence and resistance to it and in One True Thing, Stepmom and Pieces of April, questions about the construction of the ideal mother and her loss. From The Piano's engagement with French feminism and Losing Chase's reworking of the life and work of Virginia Woolf to the depiction of cross-racial relationships during apartheid in Friends, the films that go to make up this study all share a central concern with both the literal and symbolic forms that the mother-daughter relationship encompasses.

Midnight Lullabies Book Excerpt:

Usher the peace of Jesus back into motherhood with Lauren Eberspacher's 31-day devotional, Midnight Lullibies. Often, mothers are told about the joyful, exciting things that they are about to embark on as they enter into parenthood. What people fail to share is the hard seasons of motherhood: loneliness, anxiety, depression, insecurity, comparison, disconnect with the Lord and their husbands, and loss of identity. These seasons can consume their hearts and steal their joy, leaving them hopeless and full of shame. Most mothers hide during this time, thinking that they are alone or that something is wrong with them. The simple truth is that having children changes everything. But so does Jesus. His Word can breathe life into every space, and Midnight Lullabies meets the weary mama in the trenches of motherhood while she does Kingdom work within the four walls of her home, shining light and giving hope when it seems most far away. In Midnight Lullabies, over 31 days, Lauren Eberspacher explores those places of motherhood that are often left unspoken. While embarking on her own journey of being a mama, she has encountered seasons that shocked and surprised her. But there is always hope. As a storyteller, Lauren takes the everyday moments and gives biblical insight to the mother facing these hard seasons, giving the reader a sense that they are having a conversation with a friend around a cozy kitchen table. Mothers often just want to hear another mom say she's in it with them. And when Eberspacher addresses these hard issues, she not only says, "I've been there; I understand," but she follows it with, "But God." Eberspacher shows that Jesus can be found in every moment of motherhood and that His strength and His Word are enough for you.

Nanourismata Greek Lullabies Sleep Baby Sleep Book Excerpt:

Are you having trouble putting your precious bundle of joy to sleep? Babies need hours and hours of good quality sleep to support their physical, emotional, and cognitive development and overall wellness. Also, we all know that well-rested babies mean well-rested mommies and daddies, too! Unfortunately, not all babies fall asleep fast. Many are fussy sleepers and may wake up every few hours crying. Don't worry, you're not alone in your parenting journey! We’ll help you turn the nursery into a soothing song-filled sanctuary for you and your newborn. Put your sleepy time woes to bed with Nanourismata Greek Lullabies! In this whimsical lullaby book, Effie Manolas brings together a collection of traditional Greek lullabies translated into English and Greeklish. Each song is accompanied by imaginative full-colored illustrations that will captivate curious babies and kids. Made from the stuff of dreams, these simple nursery rhymes are perfect for mommies and daddies to sing to their sweet child. It may help make bedtime become more calming and comfortable for everyone. Studies have shown that the music of lullabies helps newborns relax and fall asleep faster. But you can make this ritual even more effective by gently rocking your baby while singing softly. Did you know that babies can hear mommy’s heartbeat in utero? As early as 18 weeks, infants in the womb can hear low frequency sounds like a mother’s heartbeat. By 25 weeks, their tiny ears are fully formed and can hear sounds outside the womb. This is a wonderful opportunity to help your baby become familiar with your voice, tone, and cadence. In fact, some experts even suggest that you sing a song to your baby in utero so they can become familiar with the melody. Singing the same melody will help them ease into sleep once they are born. This will also let them associate your voice and the lullaby to emotional attachment and a sense of safety. One of the reasons babies cry during bedtime is that they may feel that they are getting separated from their parents. This stresses them out and so it’s important to soothe and reassure them that they are safe. Aside from helping your infant relax and get ready for sleep, lullabies help strengthen the emotional bond you have with your newborn. When you cradle, rock, and look at your child while lulling them to sleep, you help assure them that they are in a secure place. Sweet dreams are made of these… Not just a book of children's songs, Nanourismata Greek Lullabies is a touching tribute to the marvelous tradition of the Greek lullaby. The songs span different imageries, themes, and length. The lyrics are simple and can be sung in a simple tune so any mom or dad can do it! One song, “Come Sleep and Take This Child,” vividly evokes a delightful imagery of a sweet-smelling garden overgrown with carnations and roses. Another lullaby, “Come Sleep Come Health,” can be sung like a prayer and invokes Christ and the Virgin Mary for help with good health and your baby’s growth. The lullaby, “Sleep My Angel,” is a heartfelt blessing sung by a parent who wants their little one to “become a man in body and mind” and to “become as great as that of Christ.” The song “My Sweet Eyes,” is a loving serenade from a mother who deeply adores her newborn. For first-time Greek parents, Nanourismata Greek Lullabies will help them experience, cherish, and pass on the rich literary, musical, and cultural heritage of the Greeks. Even non-Greek parents will appreciate the English translations. Nanourismata Greek Lullabies is an invitation for them to immerse in this wonderful new culture and share this unique experience with their baby.

Set against a volatile political landscape, Irish republican culture has struggled to maintain continuity with the past, affirm legitimacy in the present, and generate a sense of community for the future. Lullabies and Battle Cries explores the relationship between music, emotion, memory, and identity in republican parading bands, with a focus on how this music continues to be utilized in a post-conflict climate. As author Jaime Rollins shows, rebel parade music provides a foundational idiom of national and republican expression, acting as a critical medium for shaping new political identities within continually shifting dynamics of republican culture.

Lullabies of the Americas Book Excerpt:

The lullaby, a particular genre of song, is a gentle expression of intense emotion a caregiver uses to express boundless love to the child. the soothing melody of the lullaby sung from the mother's tender voice provides the infant with an inner feeling of peace and comfort. These love songs end up being the child's earliest memory of comfort and affection. the lullaby leaves such a lasting impression that it is recalled later in life and sung to subsequent generations for the same purposes for which it began. the lullabies in this collection are arranged for classic guitar solo (without vocals) in notation and tablature.
