Amid the instability and violence of turn-of-the-century industrialization and urbanization Russians embraced a revolutionary art form to reflect the aspirations and motivations of a new class. In The Magic Mirror Denise Youngblood portrays a newly urbanized entrepreneurial middle class--not the revolutionaries or imperialists of historians--and the movies they made and paid to see. Upon those screens they saw their lives depicted in all their variety and uncertainty. Youngblood provides a cultural angle into an era most often viewed through a revolutionary lens. Film and the film industry illuminates and reflects the popular attitudes of the time. The Magic Mirror is a study of the ten years of native film production through the Revolutions of 1917, based almost exclusively on Russian language primary sources. Topics examined include the organization and evolution of the industry followed by description and analysis of genres, motifs, and themes as exemplified in 65 of the most important surviving films.

Law in American History

Now in a new edition with extensive updates by Peter Karsten, The Magic Mirror chronicles American law from its English origins to the present. It offers comprehensive treatment of twentieth-century developments and sets American law and legal institutions in the broad context of social, economic, and political events, weaving together themes from the history of both constitutional and private law. This edition of The Magic Mirror features additional coverage of resistance to law throughU.S. history, the customary law of self-governing bodies, and Native Americans. It also has updated coverage for law in society, the legal implications of social change in areas such as criminal justice, the rights of women, blacks, the family, and children. It further examines regional differences in American legal culture, the creation of the administrative and security states, the development of American federalism, and the rise of the legal profession. The Magic Mirror pays close attentionto the evolution of substantive law categories - such as contracts, torts, negotiable instruments, real property, trusts and estates, and civil procedure - and addresses the intellectual evolution of American law, surveying movements such as legal realism and critical legal studies. The authors conclude that over its history American law has been remarkably fluid, adapting in form and substance to each successive generation without ever fully resolving the underlying social and economic conflicts that first provoke demands for legal change.

The small stories about the cat, Bliss, and his way of helping children from the town present tools that may help children help themselves. The world can be a difficult place to operate in with all the options children are offered today—and with the supervision and control they are subjected to. The freedom of my childhood, with its games and experiences, taught me about life, but many children do not have that freedom today. Through the small stories, children are given the possibility of taking possession of their lives through the use of fantasy and power of thought. The cat, Bliss, shows techniques that are used by many adults throughout the world today. So why should children not be able to profit from them? Let them try. Read the stories aloud and let the children draw their fantasy pictures and try the exercises. Several Danish children have enjoyed listening and drawing— it makes their everyday life easier and their self-esteem much better. Enjoy reading. Lone Wolsing
