From Our Bookshelves - Cultural Examples

Cover Art
An Introduction to Hmong Culture - Ya Po Cha
Call Number: DS509.5.H66 C48 2010 (6th floor, Stacks)
ISBN: 0786449519
"Presenting a holistic perspective of the Hmong way of life, this book touches on a spectrum of the Hmong culture, including traditions, customs, values, religion, arts, politics and ceremonial rituals."

Cover Art
Jehovah's Witnesses: Portrait of a Contemporary Religious Movement - Andrew Holden
Call Number: BX8526 .H65 2002 (6th floor, Stacks)
ISBN: 0415266106
"This is the first major study of this enigmatic religious society. By examining the Jehovah's Witnesses' dramatic recent expansion, Andrew Holden reveals the dependency of this quasi-totalitarian movement on the very physical and cultural resources which have brought about the privatization of religion, the erosion of community and the separation of "fact" from supernatural faith."

Cover Art
Plain Diversity: Amish Cultures and Identities - Eric Schlosser
Call Number: F535.M45 N65 2007 (6th floor, Stacks)
ISBN: 0801886058
"Plain and simple. American popular culture has embraced a singular image of Amish culture that is immune to the complexities of the modern world: one-room school houses, horses and buggies, sound and simple morals, and unfaltering faith. But these stereotypes dangerously oversimplify a rich and diverse culture."

Cover Art
A Nation Within a Nation: Voices of the Oneidas in Wisconsin - L. Gordon McLester III and Laurence M. Hauptman (Eds.)
Call Number: E99.O45 N38 2010 (7th floor, Archives, Non-Circulating)

Cover Art

Cover Art
Gun Crusaders: the NRA's Culture War - Scott Melzer
Call Number: HV7436 .M45 2009 (6th floor, Stacks)
ISBN: 0814795501
"Nothing conjures up images of the American frontier and a pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps view of freedom and independence quite like guns. Gun Crusadersis a fascinating inside look at how the four-million member National Rifle Association and its committed members come to see each and every gun control threat as a step down the path towards gun confiscation, and eventually socialism."
