224 Fighting Means Killing: Civil War Soldiers And The Nature Of Combat.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2018. Steplyk, Jonathan M. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Drawing upon letters, diaries, and postwar reminiscences, Steplyk examines what soldiers and veterans thought about killing before, during, and after the war. How did these soldiers view sharpshooters? How about hand-to-hand combat? What language did they use to describe killing in combat? What cultural and societal factors influenced their attitudes? And what was the impact of race in battlefield atrocities and bitter clashes between white Confederates and black Federals? These are the questions that Steplyk seeks to answer in Fighting Means Killing, a work that bridges the gap between military and social history—and that shifts the focus on the tragedy of the Civil War from fighting and dying for cause and country to fighting and killing. "War means fighting, and fighting means killing." Confederate cavalry commander Nathan Bedford Forrest famously declared. The Civil War was fundamentally a matter of Americans killing Americans. This undeniable reality is what Jonathan Steplyk explores in Fighting Means Killing, the first book-length study of Union and Confederate soldiers' attitudes toward, and experiences of, killing in the Civil War. Jonathan M. Steplyk is adjunct instructor at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, and adjunct lecturer at the University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been published in The Tennessee Campaign of 1864 and a forthcoming anthology on the siege of Vicksburg. "Numerous books on the Civil War deal in part with the idea of killing in combat, but none make it a central theme and certainly none make it the entire subject. Jonathan M. Steplyk's Fighting Means Killing: Civil War Soldiers and the Nature of Combat is thus a unique addition to our understanding of the war. Blending an impressive argument about soldiers' lack of aversion to killing with what historians have found about the nature of killing in other wars, Steplyk offers an engrossing and convincing look into one of the Civil War's more grisly issues." —Timothy B. Smith, author of Shiloh: Conquer or Perish and Grant Invades Tennessee: The 1862 Battles for Forts Henry and Donelson "Americans of the nineteenth century were all too aware of death, even violent death at the hands of each other. But nothing prepared the nation for the scale of military killing generated by the Civil War. Nor will we, who have learned to sentimentalize that conflict so much, be prepared for the profile of slaughter laid out so skillfully by Jonathan Steplyk. This book presents the horrific edge of killing in the most sobering detail, from Elmer Ellsworth to Ft. Pillow. It is a story of good deaths and bad, of blind bloodlust and instinctive repugnance, of bayonets and musket stocks, of closed eyes and open wounds—which is to say, an all-too-human story. I have never seen the Civil War's 'face of battle' appear in uglier or clearer form." —Allen C. Guelzo, Henry R. Luce III Professor of the Civil War Era and director of the Civil War Era Studies Program, Gettysburg College

229 Football: An Encyclopedia Of Popular Culture.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2009. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Football. Far more than a game, America's favorite spectator sport is an intrinsic part of the nation's popular culture—a proving ground for high school athletes, a springboard for stars, a multimillion-dollar business, and a vast entertainment enterprise. Football: An Encyclopedia of Popular Culture provides a detailed look at America's pastime through the lens of pop culture, a fascinating A-to-Z inventory of how certain aspects of the game affect and reflect broader society. From African Americans in football to the meaning of Zero in the sport, this volume profiles players and personalities, teams and events, games and football concepts, and sociological and technological changes in the sport. The goal is not to name every Hall of Famer or to retell the game's entire history, but to give a clear and detailed account of where, in football history, the importance of people and events extends beyond the playing field. Its wide-ranging entries examine such names as Joe Montana and Byron "Whizzer" White and phenomena from concussions, mascots, team names, and literature to U.S. presidents and football's presence in television commercials. The encyclopedia covers all levels of play—professional, collegiate, high school, and youth—offering a from-the-ground-up, gridiron look at the game of football within the matrix of American culture. Edward J. Rielly is a professor of English at Saint Joseph's College in Standish, Maine. He is the author of several books, including Baseball: An Encyclopedia of Popular Culture. "Armchair quarterbacks as well as pop-culture junkies will enjoy diving into this informative and wide-ranging A-Z rundown on the players, teams, epic match-ups, concepts, equipment, expressions and other assorted gridiron odds 'n' ends that have made football an intrinsic part of American life."—Neil Pond, American Profile "From African Americans to the number Zero, this clever and informative book is designed to acquaint you with the developments in the game, the major players, coaches and innovators, and the cultural influences on (and from) the great game of football."—Doc Kirby, Book Bit, WTBF-AM/FM "A treasure trove of information for fans and history/culture lovers alike."—Kevin Holtsberry, Collected Miscellany "For those who want a better overall understanding of the gridiron game, Football: An Encyclopedia of Popular Culture . . . is an excellent starting point."—Ron Kaplan, ForeWord "[Football: An Encyclopedia of Popular Culture] is an interesting collection of items and essays. . . . It is a reference work worthy of a library, whether university, public, or personal."—Richard C. Crepeau, Arete One of Library Journal's Best Reference Titles of 2009

237 Garden Of Stories: Jardin De Cuentos.
Red Crane Books, Albuquereque. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Eleven-year-old Tomas visits his uncle and learns a lot about his New Mexican cultural heritage from this wise storyteller. The stories are presented in both Spanish and English. Well-known Southwestern author and storyteller Jim Sagel was the author of several titles including Where the Cinnamon Winds Blow, Dancing to Pay the Light Bill, and Always the Heart. He won numerous awards for his fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, including the El Premio Literario Ciudad de San Sebastian, Spain, 1997. The prize was given for the best play written in Spanish. Sagel was the first person outside of Spain to receive the award. "The 11-year-old narrator of these ten stories (presented side-by-side in vibrant English and Spanish) paints the world of Coyote, New Mexico, in authentic and powerful colors. . . . Sagel creates a beguiling world where witches, angels, talking trees, bewitched tortillas, and a tattletale trout are as natural as sagebrush and snakeweed."-- NAPRA Review
