This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Title: Images of America: McKees and Stowe History Come Alive Author: Staff Writer Publisher: Allegheny West Magazine Date: July 2009 Thanks to the passion of Bernadette Sulzer Agreen, a former high school Spanish teacher and long-time systems analyst for Mellon Bank, the McKees Rocks Historical Society now has its history documented in a new book, "Images of America: McKees Rocks and Stowe Township." One of a series in the popular collection of history books published by Arcadia Publishing and written by local authors, the story of McKees Rocks and Stowe Township took root because of Bernadette's interest in genealogy. She attended St. Mary's School and lived in McKees Rocks until she was ten years old. Having foreign-born grandparents, she grew up hearing German and Slovak at family gatherings. It was her interest in genealogy that motivated her decade-long research and visit to her ancestral German village in presentday Hungary in 2007. Having her book published in 2009 is noteworthy to Bernadette for two reasons. First, it is the 100th anniversary of the pressed steel car strike, a landmark event in labor history in the United States. Second, it marks the 100th anniversary of her grandfather John Sulzer's arrival in McKees Rocks from Austria-Hungary. Highlights of the new book include the McKees Rocks Strike of 1909 between the Pressed Steel Car Company and its workers, the Rox Ice Arena and the Rox Rangers (later known as the Rooney Rangers), the largest Native American Mound in Western Pennsylvania, and why merchants and borough leaders raised the street level five to eight feet for a half-mile stretch of the main business thoroughfare. When Bernadette started the process to compile the book, there was no organized collection of photos or historical items available. So, the McKees Rocks Historical Society was formed in December 2007, which allowed her to be put in contact with other local history enthusiasts and collectors from which she could draw information and photos for the book. In return, Bernadette wishes that the proceeds of the book benefit the McKees Rocks Historical Society, which will enable the group to continue its efforts of collecting, preserving, and exhibiting its archival collection for the benefit of the community and its future generations.

Riassunto: meXicana Encounters charts the dynamic and contradictory representation of Mexicanas and Chicanas in culture. Rosa Linda Fregoso's deft analysis of the cultural practices and symbolic forms that shape social identities takes her across a wide and varied terrain. Among the subjects she considers are the recent murders and disappearances of women in Ciudad Juárez; transborder feminist texts that deal with private, domestic forms of violence; how films like John Sayles's Lone Star re-center white masculinity; and the significance of la familia to the identity of Chicanas/os and how it can subordinate gender and sexuality to masculinity and heterosexual roles. Fregoso's self-reflexive approach to cultural politics embraces the movement for social justice and offers new insights into the ways that racial and gender differences are inscribed in cultural practices.

From the Inside Flap: "Fregoso invents a new genre: reflexive, situated cultural critique. meXicana Encounters is a profound event in interdisciplinary American cultural studies."—Lisa Lowe, author of Immigrant Acts
