Moving Out: A Nebraska Woman's Life is the autobiography of Polly Spence (1914?98) and an intimate portrait of small-town life in the mid?twentieth century. The descendant of Irish settlers, Polly spent her first fifteen years in Franklin, a village with conservative, puritan religious values in south-central Nebraska. Although Polly's relationship with her mother was tense, she loved and admired her newspaperman father, from whom she inherited her love of learning and the English language. In 1927 her family moved to Crawford, a tough but relatively tolerant cow town in northwestern Nebraska. Polly vividly contrasts the cultural differences between Franklin's prudishness and Crawford's more liberal attitudes. Though not raised on a ranch, she came to love helping her husband feed his cattle, deliver calves, and cook for logging crews. She also found innovative ways to attract visitors to the ranch, which she turned into a thriving guest operation. Despite her devastation following several personal hardships, Polly displayed remarkable resilience and determination in her life, and when intractable problems arose in her marriage she exercised the options of a modern woman. In Moving Out she intertwines the events that characterized her time and place?the Great Depression, the intolerance that breathed life into the Ku Klux Klan, and the end of the Old West?with the love, death, and sorrow that touched her family.

'To take birth as a poor man itself is a big punishment. We are facing many difficulties and there is none to support us. We cannot die also. ... Our condition is like applying perfumed oil to mustache when there is no food to eat.' - Male focus group discussion, Appipuram, Andhra Pradesh India has experienced accelerating growth in the last 10 years, yet millions of Indians remain mired in poverty. Why? Most books on growth and poverty reduction are dominated by the perspectives of policy makers and academic experts. 'Moving Out of Poverty: The Promise of Empowerment and Democracy in India' brings together the voices of poor men and women from 300 villages across Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal, as it seeks to understand how these people have managed to escape poverty, while others remain stuck, and still others fall into poverty. The study explores the role of institutions such as family, markets and local panchayats, and factors such as aspiration, empowerment, social exclusion and conflict, health and asset accumulation, in explaining escape from poverty and falling into poverty.

In Moving Up, Moving Out, Will Cooley discusses the damage racism and discrimination have exacted on black Chicagoans in the twentieth century, while accentuating the resilience of upwardly-mobile African Americans. Cooley examines how class differences created fissures in the black community and produced quandaries for black Chicagoans interested in racial welfare. While black Chicagoans engaged in collective struggles, they also used individualistic means to secure the American Dream. Black Chicagoans demonstrated their talent and ambitions, but they entered through the narrow gate, and whites denied them equal opportunities in the educational institutions, workplaces, and neighborhoods that produced the middle class. African Americans resisted these restrictions at nearly every turn by moving up into better careers and moving out into higher-quality neighborhoods, but their continued marginalization helped create a deeply dysfunctional city. African Americans settled in Chicago for decades, inspired by the gains their forerunners were making in the city. Though faith in Chicago as a land of promise wavered, the progress of the black middle class kept the city from completely falling apart. In this important study, Cooley shows how Chicago, in all of its glory and faults, was held together by black dreams of advancement. Moving Up, Moving Out will appeal to urban historians and sociologists, scholars of African American studies, and general readers interested in Chicago and urban history. --Todd M. Michney, author of Surrogate Suburbs

Moving to college can be exciting, yet daunting. High school seniors leaving their childhood homes and heading to college receive lots of advice--from parents, siblings, counselors, and, of course, online. Even so, the guidance they will find in "'#MOVING OUT tweet'" presents unique value. That's because this new book represents the collective firsthand experience of four college students with rich and diverse experiences and with genuine intent to help out young people taking their first steps away from home. The authors--Santa Clara University students Gabrielle Jasinski, Eliza Lamson, Elizabeth Wassmann, and Hannah Miller--understand and respect the all-too-common dilemmas of college freshmen. How do I cook? "What" do I cook? Who will do my laundry? Where do I go when I just need a hug? Addressing these basics first, the authors then move on to provide guidance that goes beyond the essentials and actually focus on enriching and adding breadth to the college experience. Young college students themselves, the authors know that the unknown can be frightening. No matter how excited students might be to move to college, it is totally understandable to feel a tinge of nerves. And students are not the only ones feeling nervous; parents feel anxiety, too. It is clear that the authors understand this, because they address parental concerns with skill and empathy. "'#MOVING OUT tweet'" follows a six-step progression, starting with the pre-move period (typically the senior year of high school) to the long-term--the four years of college and beyond. Written in the easy-to-absorb tweet format, the book will help students to familiarize themselves with many aspects of this new world away from home. Parents too will find immediate value in this book, as it helps their children make a smoother, easier transition to college life. Ultimately, this book will work as a support system for students during and after the big move and will provide answers to the questions that come up during this time of intense change and excitement. "'#MOVING OUT tweet'" is part of the THiNKaha series whose slim and handy books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).

Merriam Press World War II Memoir The author manned a .50-cal. machine gun in a "Peep" (jeep) as a member of D Troop, 94th Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron, Mechanized, 14th Armored Division. Later, he became the gunner of an M8 armored car. The story starts with their shipment overseas on the troopship Gen. James A. Parker, landing in Marseilles, France. Their first foray into combat is in early December 1944. The rest of the story unfolds as the author and his unit move inexorably towards Germany and the end of the war. The story will be familiar to all veterans, with episodes of camaraderie, laughter, combat, fear, losses, tears, peace and joy. This is not a war story, nor is it a story about war; rather it is a story about men whose lives happened to become entangled in a war. 71 photos/illustrations. "I have just finished reading your Troop D memoir and I find that I react to it more strongly than I ever have to any war novel, movie, etc. Perhaps because it is the real thing. I honestly don't see how you kept your sanity and would have liked to sit at your feet and have you tell me how you did it. I think that it is all the more telling because it is so understated — leaving so much to the reader to "fill in" with his own imagination and experience. I loved reading about you and how you felt, but it really leaves me with a deep understanding of what war is and why we must be so careful about getting ourselves involved in everything that is going on today." —John Wood

The words of US President John F. Kennedy, "the rising tide lifts all boats," can be applied to inclusive growth in contemporary Asia, where the poor are able to participate in and benefit from economic growth. Moving Out of Poverty explores three channels through which economic growth confers gains to the poor and improves the status of women. The first is creation of productive employment, as labor is typically the most abundant asset of the poor, and economic growth has created jobs in labor-intensive sectors. The second is investment in schooling which, coupled with increased opportunities to earn income, has elevated womens' status in society. The third is increased availability of improved infrastructure, which directly impacts increasing household income from wage work and self-employment activities. This book will be of great value to development economists, students and researchers interested in rural economies in Asia, and policymakers engaged in poverty reduction.

Suddenly I’m rudely evicted from Mommy’s moist, dark, but totally protective care. Strangers with blue masks are oohing and aahing. Then they spank me! I can’t talk, but I sure can see what’s going on. Attacking a defenseless little creature. Wow! Then time goes on. I tell you about every bump in the pot-holed road of life as I grow up. Like how I feel when Mommy is having another baby. When bribed to use the potty. When schoolmates make fun of kids who look different. When my body starts to change. When one of my best friends gets cancer. When I learn to drive. Or, scariest of all, when high school days are over, and the time has come to leave the loving nest in which I had been shielded by my family since that first spank? Some milestones are light and cutesy; others really touching and emotional. But such is life......
