✏ There She Is Miss America Book Summary : Hoping to extend the summer tourism season, a group of Atlantic City businessmen hatched the idea of a late September "Fall Frolic" in 1920. The following year, several East Coast newspapers featured a photographic beauty contest, sending the winners to the Fall Frolic for the final round of judging. The Miss America Pageant evolved from this contest to become the longest-running beauty pageant in the world. While some see the competition as a hokey vestige of another era, many remain enthralled by the annual event. And whether you love it or hate it, no one can deny the impact the contest has had on American popular culture--indeed, one can draw a direct line from the pageant to the myriad "reality" programs that now dominate network television. The Miss America Pageant itself has provided a fascinating glimpse into how American standards of femininity have been defined, projected, maintained, and challenged over the course of the twentieth century and into the current one. At various times, it has been praised as a positive tole model for young American women, protested by feminists as degrading to women, and shamed by scandals, such as the one caused by the Penthouse photos of Vanessa L. Williams in 1984. In the first interdisciplinary anthology to examine the uniquely American event, scholars defend, critique, and reflect on the pageant, grappling with themes such as beauty, race, the body, identify, kitsch, and consumerism.

✏Asian American Curricular Epistemicide Book Summary : In this important book, Nicholas Hartlep and Daniel Scott’s detailed analyses on both visual and historical representations of Asian Americans in textbooks and teacher manuals used in our elementary and secondary schools poignantly tell us that generations of children are growing up being fed this single story about Asian Americans. As Hartlep and Scott write. Asian Americans have once again been constructed as the “good minority” that can succeed on their own and be used as a political instrument to shame the Blacks for their underachievement and their fight for equality. Over and over again, the media has been telling “a single story” about Asian Americans to the public for the past fifty years. The consequence of this fabricated story is that it “discourages others—even Asian-Americans themselves—from believing in the validity of their struggles” (Linshi, 2014, p. 1).

✏To Criticize the Critic and Other Writings Book Summary : These influential essay and lectures by T. S. Eliot span nearly a half century--from 1917, when he published The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, to 1961, four years before his death. With the luminosity and clarity of a first-rate intellect, Eliot considers the uses of literary criticism, the writers who had the greatest influence on his own work, and the importance of being truly educated. Every thoughtful person who yearns to do more than simply get through the day will be reinforced by The Aims of Education. Other pieces include To Criticize the Critic, From Poe to Valäry, American Literature and the American Language, What Dante Means to Me, The Literature of Politics, The Classics and the Man of Letters, Ezra Pound: His Metric and Poetry, and Reflections on Vers Libre.
