If you listen on the streetcorners, in the cafes, at the kitchen tables of America, you'll hear people telling funny stories and jokes. Hometown humor helps pull us through.

We were going down the road, and we came to this house. There was a little boy standing by the road just crying and crying. We stopped, and we heard the biggest racket you ever heard up in the house. œWhat TMs the matter, son? œWhy, Maw and Paw are up there fightin TM. œWho is your Paw, son? œWell, that TMs what they are fightin TM over. Brimming with ballads, stories, riddles, tall tales, and great good humor, My Curious and Jocular Heroes pays homage to four people who guided and inspired Loyal Jones TMs own study of Appalachian culture. His sharp-eyed portraits introduce a new generation to Bascom Lunsford, the pioneer behind the œmemory collections of song and story at Columbia University and the Library of Congress; the Sorbonne-educated collector and performer Josiah H. Combs; Cratis D. Williams, the legendary father of Appalachian studies; and the folklorist and master storyteller Leonard W. Roberts. Throughout, Jones highlights the tales, songs, jokes, and other collected nuggets that define the breadth of each man TMs research and repertoire.

Church can be a puzzle for children, what with grandfathers up in the choir wearing dresses, and "the consecrated Cross I'd bear" sounding like a big animalwith bad vision. Jack Butler says that Allbright "can hit your funny bone at fifty paces. . .and he can do a little bit more".

How does sound ecology—an acoustic connective tissue among communities—also become a basis for a healthy economy and a just community? Jeff Todd Titon's lived experiences shed light on the power of song, the ecology of musical cultures, and even cultural sustainability and resilience. In Toward a Sound Ecology, Titon's collected essays address his growing concerns with people making music, holistic ecological approaches to music, and sacred transformations of sound. Titon also demonstrates how to conduct socially responsible fieldwork and compose engaging and accessible ethnography that speaks to a diverse readership. Toward a Sound Ecology is an anthology of Titon's key writings, which are situated chronologically within three particular areas of interest: fieldwork, cultural and musical sustainability, and sound ecology. According to Titon—a foundational figure in folklore and ethnomusicology—a re-orientation away from a world of texts and objects and toward a world of sound connections will reveal the basis of a universal kinship.

Distinguished by its muticultural approach, this book provides an up-to-date survey of child welfare, including an overview of the generalist perspective, a history of child welfare, and a discussion of child welfare services. It analyzes the many changes in child welfare policy since the early 1990s and includes case examples to provide topical and multicultural illustrations of the concepts presented. The lead author and chapter contributors are in the forefront of new developments in child welfare. The Second Edition features chapters on working with diverse family systems, including African-American, Hispanic, Asian and Pacific Islander, and American Indian families. The updated discussion of child welfare policy addresses Family Preservation, the Multi-Ethnic Placement Act, and the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. New material is also presented on child maltreatment and child welfare in rural America, kinship care, the link between the community and the family, and managed care. For anyone interested in child welfare and recent changes in child welfare policy.

"The Encyclopedia details subjects traditionally associated with Appalachia - folklore, handcrafts, mountain music, food, and coal mining - but goes far beyond regional stereotypes to treat such wide-ranging topics as the aerospace industry, Native American foodways, ethnic diversity in the coalfields, education reform, linguistic variation, and the contested notion of what it means to be Appalachian, both inside and outside the region." "Researched and developed by the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services at East Tennessee State University, this 1,864-page compendium includes all thirteen states that constitute the northern, central, and southern subregions of Appalachia - from New York to Mississippi. With entries on everything from Adventists to zinc mining, the Encyclopedia of Appalachia is a one-stop guide to all things Appalachian."--BOOK JACKET.
