For nearly two decades, the Oryx Press GRANTS Database has provided the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding funding for research and performance-related programs. The Directory of Grants in the Humanities is a specialized directory created from the database, focusing on funding programs in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. The only directory of its kind to include all 50 states' and several Canadian provinces' arts/humanities councils' programs, this comprehensive 11th edition contains updates on over 3,400 current funding programs and features 200 new grant programs. Also debuting are descriptions of recently awarded grants; a list of World Wide Web sites for sponsoring organizations; and an enhanced subject index with cross-references to aid searching by subject area. The vast scope of programs listed in the Directory of Grants in the Humanities 1997/98 fund cultural outreach programs, research, travel, internships, fellowships, dissertation support, performances, exhibitions, publishing awards, and performance prizes. Funding programs are provided for such humanities disciplines as literature, language, history, anthropology, architecture, philosophy, and psychology. Fine and performing arts programs include painting, dance, photography, sculpture, and music.
Scholars have characterized the early decades of the Cold War as an era of rising militarism in the United States but most Americans continued to identify themselves as fundamentally anti-militaristic. To them, “militaristic” defined the authoritarian regimes of Germany and Japan that the nation had defeated in World War II—aggressive, power-hungry countries in which the military possessed power outside civilian authority. Much of the popular culture in the decades following World War II reflected and reinforced a more pacifist perception of America. This study explores military images in television, film, and comic books from 1945 to 1970 to understand how popular culture made it possible for a public to embrace more militaristic national security policies yet continue to perceive themselves as deeply anti-militaristic.
Presidential Elections is an almanac of the popular vote in every presidential election in American history, analyzed at the county level. Most Americans are familiar with the crude red state/blue state maps used by commentators and campaign strategists---and even, for want of an alternative, by many academics. In providing a higher-resolution view of voting behavior than we have ever had before, the authors of this new volume enable us to see local and regional political trends that are invisible in state-level aggregations. Presidential Elections will enable scholars to more subtly analyze voting behavior, campaigns, and presidential politics; commentators will use it to analyze trends and trace the historical evolution of new coalitions and voting blocs; strategists will use it to plan campaigns and mobilize constituencies. The data for each election presented in a stunning four-color map and a set of graphs accompanied by a brief history of the campaign will become the standard almanac on the subject: a required resource for academic and public libraries, as well as for scholars, consultants, and pundits nationwide.
