Intertexts Marguerite Helmers 2003-01-30 What do we mean when we talk about reading? What does it mean to "teach reading?" What place does reading have in the college writing classroom? Intertexts: Reading Pedagogy in College Writing Classrooms theoretically and practically situates the teaching of reading as a common pedagogical practice in the college writing classroom. As a whole, the book argues for rethinking the separation of reading and writing within the first-year writing classroom--for an expanded notion of reading that is based on finding and creating meaning from a variety of symbolic forms, not just print-based texts but also other forms, such as Web sites and visual images. The chapter authors represent a range of cultural, personal, and rhetorical perspectives, including cultural studies, classical rhetoric, visual rhetoric, electronic literacy, reader response theory, creative writing, and critical theories of literature and literary criticism. This volume, an important contribution to composition studies, is essential reading for researchers, instructors, writing program administrators, and students involved in college writing instruction and literature.

East Timor Damien Kingsbury 2007 This is the most comprehensive study of East Timor since its independence. The book examines the major themes of development, borders and security, politics and justice, resource and land management, education, and language policy. Though the country was initially lauded as a case study in successful state-building, the crisis of 2006 demonstrated that East Timor had more in common with other post-colonial, post-conflict societies than some of these earlier optimistic assessments. East Timor continues to attract the interest and attention of governments, scholars, development institutions, and aid workers as a society rebuilding itself after almost a quarter of a century of profound trauma and consecutive eras of colonialism. Covering the era from the independence referendum in August 1999 to the political crisis in 2006, and future prospects and challenges, this book is an invaluable resource for understanding the challenges facing the first new nation of the 21st century.

Thyme in a Bottle Ingrid Croce 1996-04-16 In 1985 Ingrid Croce opened Croce's Restaurant and Jazz Bar as a tribute to her late husband, singer and songwriter Jim Croce. Attempting to recreate the warmth and energy from their early days of entertaining together, Ingrid infused Croce's with great food, live music and an inviting, casual atmosphere. She has since parlayed the success of this unbeatable combination into a group of popular restaurants and clubs as one of the pioneers in the rejuvenated Gaslamp district of downtown San Diego. Now many of the recipes that have made her restaurants famous are available here. Current culinary trends are reflected in the seasonal American cuisine and Southwestern fare of Ingrid's Cantina and Sidewalk Cafe in recipes such as Santa Barbara Sea Bass with Caramelized Onions and Fig, Ricotta Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms and Sage, and Pacific Rim Tamales. Drawing on Ingrid's multicultural background and interests, Thyme in a Bottle features Italian favorites as interpreted by the Croce family, like Roasted Pepperonta Salad and Fried Zucchini Blossoms, as well as the Russian and Jewish classics of her childhood, such as brisket and tzimmes with kasha and varnishkas. Ingrid also reveals the secrets behind her own signature blitzes and "poppers." Interpreted with the recipes is Ingrid's own inspired story. She writes openly about her intense romance with Jim Croce, their happy but occasionally troubled marriage. She tells of the difficult repercussions of Jim's early death, from battles with the music industry to rearing a young son on her own. And she shares the challenges of starting a restaurant and becoming a real player in a notoriously competitive business. It is all told with such candor, warmth, and enthusiasm that by the time Ingrid concludes her story with personal and professional triumphs, we are cheering the heartening success of such a vibrant spirit. Fans of the late Jim Croce will delight in this collection of recipes and memoirs by his wife, Ingrid. Ingrid's inspiration comes from memories if the exceptional food and music that her and Jim created in their Pennsylvania farmhouse in the late sixties and early seventies. As proprietor of five award-winning San Diego restaurants and clubs, Ingrid has garnered an enviable reputation in the culinary world. In Thyme in a Bottle she serves up the delicious recipes that make her restaurant so successful as well as antedotes about her life and times. With its wonderful diversity of menus--from traditional Italian and Russian favorites to contemporary American and Southwestern cuisine--this warm and engaging cookbook is an excellent addition to any cook's library.
Green Armour Osmar White 2016-03-28 A STORY OF THE JUNGLE AND THE SEA, OF MAN AGAINST NATURE AND MAN AGAINST MAN... GREEN AMOUR is the courageous story of fighting men in the swamps and jungles of New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. From the earliest days of forlorn hopes to the large-scale, well-organised attacks by land, sea, and air his terrifying first-hand account is distilled from the bloody, despairing experiences of the Australian and American forces in the early days of the Second World War... “A brilliant and exciting narrative.”—TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT “Osmar White saw more of the bloody action in New Guinea than any other reporter who has yet written about it.”—NEW YORK TIMES “Grim, realistic account of the hardships and terrors of jungle warfare."—BRITISH BROADCASTING CORPORATION Green Armour is a story of the jungle and the sea, of man against nature, of man against man. It is the story of fighting men in the swamps and jungles of New Guinea, in the islands and atolls and tangled waterways of the Solomon Islands. Its sources were four dog-eared notebooks marked New Guinea, February-October 1942; a diary, with the U.S. Pacific Fleet, April-July 1943; a file of dispatches to Australian Newspapers; and a recollection of certain places, men and events which need no annotation to remain forever sharp in the memory. Written from a knowledge that few, if any, correspondents possessed, Green Armour is a first-hand account of war in the Pacific from the earliest days of forlorn hopes to the large-scale, well-organised attacks by land, sea and air—a taut, terrifying account, distilled from the bloody, despairing experiences of the Australian and American forces in the early years of the World War II.
