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

This book is the first comprehensive cultural and historical introduction to modern Georgia.

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.

    0 5/5 Violet - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's The Carolinas & Georgia (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Fo some reason, it is so hard to find a travel guide for this region (and I'm really not sure why, particularly as Charleston and Savannah were recently named as 2 of the top 3 cities in the US to travel to by Travel + Leisure magazine: http://www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best-cities-2014-winners-list). So thank you to Fodor's for not only covering this popular region ignored by most travel guide companies, but also for covering it so well! This book is very thorough, and it includes great information for visiting the region, as well as lovely pictures. Highly recommend to anyone visiting these states. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 13, 2014

This review is from: Tactical State Patch - Georgia (Apparel) Just know that this is a beautiful patch, and this picture does not do it any justice. You can rest assured, knowing that you will recieve a high quality patch. Do not be discouraged since this is obviousley not the long-lived Georgia flag that was flown above our States capitol for years. Instead, know that this is simply a remodeling of the very first flag of the Confederacy with the Georgia seal placed inside the Stars. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 15, 2014

    Very Enjoyable and Fascinating

    Until somewhat recently, I never knew about this book. I have seen some of the other books in the series, but never really looked through them. But, being someone from Georgia, this one caught my eye. Actually, I was more led by my higher self to find it. You see, back in 2006, Jim Miles (the author) contacted me via phone to ask if he could use some of my entries from my paranormal investigation team's journal (that we had up on a website) from two hunts we did back in 2000. I did not know what he wanted to use, but gave him my permission. That was the last I heard about it until browsing around in my local Barnes & Nobles one day. I came across the Georgia books area and saw one on ghosts, which grabbed my attention. Then I glanced up to see "Weird Georgia" and decided to look through it. To my surprise, I flipped directly to page 232 and my journal entry from our R.J. Taylor Memorial Hospital investigation in Hawkinsville with my name credited (as well as my friends)... 4/5 Elak Swindell "Movie Addict" (Georgia USA) - See all my reviews, January 22, 2013
