Georgia:, A State History

Creator: Buddy Sullivan, Georgia Historical Society | History - 2010-05-05

This book is the latest in a long line of distinguished publications produced by the Society that promote a better understanding of Georgia history and the people who make it.

Publisher: Arcadia Pub

About this book
Georgia's past has diverged from the nation's and given the state and its people a distinctive culture and character. Some of the best, and the worst, aspects of American and Southern history can be found in the story of what is arguably the most important state in the South. Yet just as clearly Georgia has not always followed the road traveled by the rest of the nation and the region. Explaining the common and divergent paths that make us who we are is one reason the Georgia Historical Society has collaborated with Buddy Sullivan and Arcadia Publishing to produce Georgia: A State History, the first full-length history of the state produced in nearly a generation.Sullivan's lively account draws upon the vast archival and photographic collections of the Georgia Historical Society to trace the development of Georgia's politics, economy, and society and relates the stories of the people, both great and small, who shaped our destiny.This book opens a window on our rich and sometimes tragic past and reveals to all of us the fascinating complexity of what it means to be a Georgian.The Georgia Historical Society was founded in 1839 and is headquartered in Savannah. The Society tells the story of Georgia by preserving records and artifacts, by publishing and encouraging research and scholarship, and by implementing educational and outreach programs. This book is the latest in a long line of distinguished publications produced by the Society that promote a better understanding of Georgia history and the people who make it.

Georgia, In the Mountains of Poetry

Creator: Peter Nasmyth | 2006-12-06

First published in 1998, this book has become one of the comprehensive cultural and historical introductions to modern Georgia. This third edition brings the drama-rich story up to date.

Publisher: Taylor & Francis

About this book
This book is the first comprehensive cultural and historical introduction to modern Georgia. It covers the country region by region, taking the form of a literary journey through the transition from Soviet Georgia to the modern independent nation state. Peter Nasmyth traveled extensively in Georgia over a period of 5 years, and his lively and topical survey charts the nation's remarkable cultural and historical journey to statehood. This authoritative, lively and perceptive book is based on hundreds of interviews with modern Georgians, from country priests to black marketeers. "Georgia: Mountains and Honour will be essential reading for anyone interested in this fascinating region, as well as those requiring an insight into the life after the collapse of the old Soviet order in the richest and most dramatic of the former republics.

    In the dark we're all scared...

    What a beautiful family drama this film was! Not only did director Ulu Grosbard give us this story about two sisters and the struggles between them, but also he gave it to us (with the help of writer Barbara Turner) with a surprising twist that you do not see in everyday cinema. Here is a story that is brutally honest and exceptionally real to anyone involved. On the top layer you have a sister trying to compete with the popularity of the other, on another layer you have a troubled spirit controlled by substance abuse, and yet on another layer (and they keep going), you have this sister which isn't a good singer more passionate about the craft than the one that has an ever growing fan base. Wow. With this much structure and substance, you may think that it could get wrapped around itself relatively easy and eventually loose the potential that it has. Well, if you were thinking that ... you would be wrong. Georgia is able to keep us guessing and wanting more from each passing... 4/5 A.

    Heartbreaking

    This is a movie for introspective people. It's heartbreaking to watch JJ Leigh's Sadie manufacturing so much hope in believing in herself and her singing. I identify more with Georgia's character because she has more or less the approval from the society. At times I felt embarrassed for Sadie with her tryings and failures. While 'normal folks' see Sadie as a talentless junkie, you have to give Sadie points for trying. Music is a form of self-expression and is very subjective. Nobody has the right to crush a musician's dream. Both actresses gave nuanced performance. Although JJ Leigh's got the flashier Sadie. Without Winningham's emotionally guarded Georgia, there's no contrast to Sadie's desperate plight. The song "No More Hard Times" was so poignant to the story. It broke my heart at the end of the film to see two sisters singing the same song at different settings. You know both women had achieved an understanding for each other's path in life. This movie is for all the... 4/5 Chanteuse (LaLaLand) - See all my reviews This review is from: Georgia (DVD) This is a movie for introspective people.

    Rags to Riches,NO, Greek Tragedy,NO (minus one star because)

    This is a tale about a successful singer and her sister living on her coat tails as a untalented singer, addict, and polar opposite. It's clean living success versus struggles and failures. As an author of a book dealing with dysfunction and addiction, I enjoyed this move. The movie is set up to root for the underdog, but the more you want her to make it or to crash and burn (even die), the more she stays the same in her situation. Basically, you can't teach a dog new tricks. Excellant acting by Jennifer Jason Leigh as the overly masscaraed, eye-lined Sadie. At times she looks like she has two black eyes, because in reality she has been beaten (not physically, but beaten in life). I kept waiting for her to be beautiful, but JJL does a great job being unattractive. Why did I prefer her to the Georgia character? Must be a character flaw of mine. I rooted like heck for her and chances are would have seen one of her band's shows instead of Georgia's.

    Made a little boy super happy

    We bought this for my almost six year old son for his Halloween and football birthday party costumes. It arrived faster than was estimated in the tracker, which is always nice. I ordered him the Medium which is supposed to be size 7/8 I believe. He is almost six but a little smaller than average, about 45 inches tall. I wanted him to be able to wear it for a few years. It fits him really well. The pants go down to his ankles so they'll still look good as they get short and he can just put some long socks on, but the waist is elastic enough that it fits him now and I'm sure it will keep fitting him as he grows taller. The jersey goes almost to his knees right now, but again, it doesn't look bad and it makes it so he can grow for a couple of years and still fit into it. We ironed on the numbers on the back and it took a little longer than the directions say, but that's fine. He doesn't like the shoulder pads that come with it, but they are easy to take out and put back in. He... 5/5 AFwifeandmomof5 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    cute as a button!

    0 4/5 teachwrite - See all my reviews This review is from: Franklin Sports NCAA Deluxe Youth Team Uniform Set (Sports) This little suit was as cute as it could be! Perfect weight helmet and sizing was right on! My only complaint was that the hard plastic shoulder pads fit into a pocket in the shoulder of the shirt. The opening for these pads is large, which makes them fall out easily. Otherwise, loved the item! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 12, 2011
