A History of Georgia

Creator: Kenneth Coleman | History - 1991

For this new edition, available in paperback for the first time, A History of Georgia has been revised to bring the work up through the events of the 1980s.

Publisher: University of Georgia Press

About this book
First published in 1977, A History of Georgia has become the standard history of the state. Documenting events from the earliest discoveries by the Spanish to the rapid changes the state has undergone with the civil rights era, the book gives broad coverage to the state's social, political, economic, and cultural history. This work details Georgia's development from past to present, including the early Cherokee land disputes, the state's secession from the Union, cotton's reign, Reconstruction, the Bourbon era, the effects of the New Deal, Martin Luther King, Jr., the fall of the county-unit system, and Jimmy Carter's election to the presidency. Also noted are the often-overlooked contributions of Indians, blacks, and women. Each imparting his own special knowledge and understanding of a particular period in the state's history, the authors bring into focus the personalities and events that made Georgia what it is today. For this new edition, available in paperback for the first time, A History of Georgia has been revised to bring the work up through the events of the 1980s. The bibliographies for each section and the appendixes have also been updated to include relevant scholarship from the last decade.

Georgia, A Novel of Georgia O'Keeffe

Creator: Dawn Tripp | Fiction - 2016-02-09

This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine.

Publisher: Random House

About this book
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • In a dazzling work of historical fiction in the vein of Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, Dawn Tripp brings to life Georgia O’Keeffe, her love affair with photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and her quest to become an independent artist. This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine. In 1916, Georgia O’Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O’Keeffe’s work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O’Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz’s sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation. Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.A breathtaking work of the imagination, Georgia is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend.Praise for Georgia“Complex and original . . . Georgia conveys O’Keeffe’s joys and disappointments, rendering both the woman and the artist with keenness and consideration.”—The New York Times Book Review“As magical and provocative as O’Keeffe’s lush paintings of flowers that upended the art world in the 1920s . . . Tripp inhabits Georgia’s psyche so deeply that the reader can practically feel the paintbrush in hand as she creates her abstract paintings and New Mexico landscapes. . . . Evocative from the first page to the last, Tripp’s Georgia is a romantic yet realistic exploration of the sacrifices one of the foremost artists of the twentieth century made for love.”—USA Today  “Sexually charged . . . insightful . . . Dawn Tripp humanizes an artist who is seen in biographies as more icon than woman. Her sensuous novel is as finely rendered as an O’Keeffe painting.”—The Denver Post“A vivid work forged from the actual events of O’Keeffe’s life . . . [Tripp] imbues the novel with a protagonist who forces the reader to consider the breadth of O’Keeffe’s talent, business savvy, courage and wanderlust. . . . [She] is vividly alive as she grapples with success, fame, integrity, love and family.”—Salon “Masterful . . . The book is a lovely portrayal of an iconic artist who is independent and multidimensional. Tripp’s O’Keeffe is a woman hoping to break free of conventional definitions of art, life and gender, as well as a woman of deep passion and love.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “O’Keeffe blazes across the pages in Tripp’s tour de force about this indomitable woman. . . . Tripp has hit her stride here, bringing to life one of the most remarkable artists of the twentieth century with veracity, heart, and panache.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)“I devoured this dazzling novel about an American icon. Dawn Tripp brings Georgia O’Keeffe so fully to life on every page and, with great wisdom, examines the very nature of love, longing, femininity, and art.”—J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Maine and The EngagementsFrom the Hardcover edition.

This review is from: NCAA '47 Clean Up Adjustable Hat, One Size Fits All (Sports) I hate it because the item shipped doesn't have the same logo as the one in the photo. The logo in the photograph is the Florida State classic logo and the cap I received has the hideous new logo on it. I will definitely return the cap and I fully expect to be refunded the amount I payed for two day shipping since the item is totally misrepresented. Also, I wonder if the photo of the cap will be updated after I post this. I'm very disappointed with this purchase., November 28, 2014

    Crooked brim, shoddy workmanship

    1/5 Ron - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: NCAA '47 Clean Up Adjustable Hat, One Size Fits All (Sports) Pretty bad hat. The brim was sewn on crooked and it looks horrible and I really can't even wear it. VERY shoddy workmanship. Made in China, what do I expect right?, September 21, 2015

    Basic, no-frills hat for hat wearing people who appreciate simple baseball hats.

    I ordered this hat to replace a friend of many years who had turned a bit manky as a result of the sweat and the detritus of life. Amazon got it to Afghanistan in eight days and I got what was depicted in the ad--a basic, no-frills, University of Kentucky hat. Basic cotton-twill construction and soft to the touch.....almost as if it were a brushed cotton. Nice bill of fibrous construction (not plastic-backed) which took the gentle curvature one would expect if wrapped around a baseball or stuck it in a coffee mug overnight after two or three wears. If you're a flat-bill type, save your money for the big name hat with the stickers and tags that seem to mean more than the logo itself. And as for overall fit, this hat seems suited for those of average headular size with its low crown and slide buckle that fit my size 7 head with little to no pronounced buckling in the rear or poofiness in the crown.

    Trouble In Mind.

    I keep trying to write reviews about this movie, and they either get lost, or I get interrupted. But I'm determined to add my 2 cents about this great movie because I feel so strongly about Jennifer Jason Leighs miraculous performance. She is touched by God (or Satan), because she so totally immerses herself into her role as "Sadie", that there is not a hint of "acting." She so perfectly captures those downed-out girls I saw in punk clubs in the '70's & '80's (where are THEY now??), and her slide down the gutter of addiction is so real, you may find yourself trying to wipe the droul off your t.v. screen. Sadie's pathetic attempts to "be somebody", in light of her sister, "Georgia", who not only has "respectable" fame, but, a seemingly stable family..etc, is heartbreaking to behold. The nuances of her portrayal are newly un-covereed at each viewing, leaving you just shaking your head in amazement at her performance. I'm surprised some viewers found her interpretation "mannered", to put... 5/5 F. Gentile (Lake Worth, Florida, United States) - See all my reviews, March 14, 2002

    Stunning Performance & Great Tunes

    4/5 D S Kirkpatrick (Canyon Country, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Georgia (DVD) Rarely will you see an actress commit herself so deeply to a role as Miss Leigh does in this film. She is a terrrific actress with a fine body of work, and is proof positive of mainstream Hollywood's lack of commitment to true art. John C. Reilly is dead-on, and John Doe is perfect. In addition to terrific perfomances, you also get some great music. Lots of Velvet Underground stuff as performed by Doe with Leigh singing backup, Leigh sings "Almost Blue" very touchingly, and a great rendition of Van Morrison's "Take Me Back". This is a magnificient film (a bit trite in the plot, sure) that lends itself to repeat viewing. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 1, 2001

    Will Raven melt Konstantin's cold exterior/

    I haven't yet, but I intend to read ever Georgia Le Carre book that I can get. I LOVE her books. In Redemption, Konstantin's Bosnian family is massacred in the Bosnia-Serbia conflict. He was spared as his mother had hidden him away. He was, however, able to see all that happened to his family, including the rape and execution of his mother as well as the execution of his grandmother. He has grown into a cold, hard, unfeeling killer. Or has he? Raven has watched her beloved sister. Octavia, die from cancer, leaving her young daughter, Janna, as an orphan. Selflessly, Raven agrees to raise Janna as if she were her own child. Raven works in a casino as a croupier. She sees men of wealth and power regularly there. However, there is something about Konstantin that catches her eye. As for him, he can't keep his eyes off of her. They meet and the more time she spends with him, the more convinced she is that he is not as hard and cold as he wants to appear.
