Lively, heartfelt, urgent, enduring, Crazy Woman Creek celebrates community—connections built or strengthened by women that unveil a new West.
Summary Book Review The Chronicles of Panchita Villa and Other Guerrilleras by Tey Diana Rebolledo:
Download or read book The Chronicles of Panchita Villa and Other Guerrilleras written by Tey Diana Rebolledo and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2005 with total page 281 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Although there have been substantial contributions to Chicana literature and criticism over the past few decades, Chicanas are still underrepresented and underappreciated in the mainstream literary world and virtually nonexistent in the canon. Writers like Sandra Cisneros, Ana Castillo, and Gloria Anzaldúa have managed to find larger audiences and critical respect, but there are legions of Chicana writers and artists who have been marginalized and ignored despite their talent. Even in Chicano anthologies, the focus has tended to be more on male writers. Chicanas have often found themselves without a real home in the academic world. Tey Diana Rebolledo has been writing about Chicana/Latina identity, literature, discrimination, and feminism for more than two decades. In this collection of essays, she brings together both old and new works to give a state-of-the-moment look at the still largely unanswered questions raised by vigilant women of color throughout the last half of the twentieth century. An intimate introductory essay about Rebolledo's personal experiences as the daughter of a Mexican mother and a Peruvian father serves to lay the groundwork for the rest of the volume. The essays delve into the historical development of Chicana writing and its early narratives, the representation of Chicanas as seen on book covers, Chicana feminism, being a Chicana critic in the academy, Chicana art history, and Chicana creativity. Rebolledo encourages "guerrillera" warfare against academia in order to open up the literary canon to Chicana/Latina writers who deserve validation.

Newgate, as the annexe of the Old Bailey, or great criminal law court of this city, has ever been closely connected with the administration of justice in the country. In its records are to be read the variations of the Statute Book. It is possible to trace at Newgate the gradual amelioration of the penal code, from the days of its pitiless ferocity, to the time when, thanks to the incessant protests of humanitarian and philanthropist, a milder system of punishment became the rule._x000D_ Volume 1:_x000D_ Medieval Newgate_x000D_ Newgate in the Sixteenth Century_x000D_ Newgate in the Seventeenth Century (Down to the Great Fire)_x000D_ Newgate in the Seventeenth Century (After the Great Fire)_x000D_ In the Press-Yard_x000D_ Executions_x000D_ Escapes_x000D_ The Gaol Calendar_x000D_ The Gaol Fever_x000D_ The New Gaol_x000D_ Volume 2:_x000D_ Crimes and Criminals_x000D_ Newgate Down to 1818_x000D_ Philanthropy in Newgate_x000D_ The Beginnings of Prison Reform_x000D_ The First Report of the Inspectors of Prisons_x000D_ Executions_x000D_ Newgate Notorieties_x000D_ Later Records_x000D_ Newgate Notorieties_x000D_ Newgate Reformed
