Do you "know" that posh comes from an acronym meaning "port out, starboard home"? That "the whole nine yards" comes from (pick one) the length of a WWII gunner's belt; the amount of fabric needed to make a kilt; a sarcastic football expression? That Chicago is called "The Windy City" because of the bloviating habits of its politicians, and not the breeze off the lake? If so, you need this book. David Wilton debunks the most persistently wrong word histories, and gives, to the best of our actual knowledge, the real stories behind these perennially mis-etymologized words. In addition, he explains why these wrong stories are created, disseminated, and persist, even after being corrected time and time again. What makes us cling to these stories, when the truth behind these words and phrases is available, for the most part, at any library or on the Internet? Arranged by chapters, this book avoids a dry A-Z format. Chapters separate misetymologies by kind, including The Perils of Political Correctness (picnics have nothing to do with lynchings), Posh, Phat Pommies (the problems of bacronyming--the desire to make every word into an acronym), and CANOE (which stands for the Conspiracy to Attribute Nautical Origins to Everything). Word Myths corrects long-held and far-flung examples of wrong etymologies, without taking the fun out of etymology itself. It's the best of both worlds: not only do you learn the many wrong stories behind these words, you also learn why and how they are created--and what the real story is.

First published ten years ago, award-winning historian Ray Raphael’s Founding Myths has since established itself as a landmark of historical myth-busting. With Raphael’s trademark wit and flair, Founding Myths exposed the errors and inventions in America’s most cherished tales, from Paul Revere’s famous ride to Patrick Henry’s “Liberty or Death” speech. For the thousands who have been captivated by Raphael’s eye-opening accounts, history has never been the same. In this revised tenth-anniversary edition, Raphael revisits the original myths and further explores their evolution over time, uncovering new stories and peeling back new layers of misinformation. This new edition also examines the highly politicized debates over America’s past, as well as how our approach to history in school reinforces rather than corrects historical mistakes. A book that “explores the truth behind the stories of the making of our nation” (National Public Radio), this revised edition of Founding Myths will be a welcome resource for anyone seeking to separate historical fact from fiction.

Once considered the largest and most extensive source of biographies in the English language, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology contains information on nearly every historical figure, notable name, and important subject of mythology from throughout the world prior to the 20th century. Spanning all fields of human effort-from literature and the arts to philosophy and science-and touching on topics from multiple areas of mythological study, including Norse, Greek, and Roman, this extraordinary reference guide continues to be one of the most thorough and accurate collections of biographical data ever created. Combining mythological and biographical entries into a single, comprehensive list, and incorporating a unique system of indicating pronunciation and orthography, The Universal Dictionary of Biography and Mythology offers readers an unparalleled record of historically significant identities, from the obscure and forgotten newsmakers of yesteryear to the highly celebrated shapers of history that remain influential today. Volume III (IAC-PRO) of this exquisite four-volume set includes information on such names as Egyptian goddess Isis, American statesman Thomas Jefferson, German astronomer Johann Kepler, Spartan king Leonidas, Abraham Lincoln, Medusa, Mohammed, Roman emperor Nero, Orion, Plutarch, Ponce de Leon, and many more. JOSEPH THOMAS (1811-1891) also wrote A Comprehensive Medical Dictionary, various pronouncing vocabularies of biographical and geographical names, and a system of pronunciation for Lippincott's Pronouncing Gazetteer of the World.

C. S. Lewis is the 20th century's most widely read Christian writer and J.R.R. Tolkien its most beloved mythmaker. For three decades, they and their closest associates formed a literary club known as the Inklings, which met every week in Lewis's Oxford rooms and in nearby pubs. They discussed literature, religion, and ideas; read aloud from works in progress; took philosophical rambles in woods and fields; gave one another companionship and criticism; and, in the process, rewrote the cultural history of modern times. In The Fellowship, Philip and Carol Zaleski offer the first complete rendering of the Inklings' lives and works. The result is an extraordinary account of the ideas, affections and vexations that drove the group's most significant members. C. S. Lewis accepts Jesus Christ while riding in the sidecar of his brother's motorcycle, maps the medieval and Renaissance mind, becomes a world-famous evangelist and moral satirist, and creates new forms of religiously attuned fiction while wrestling with personal crises. J.R.R. Tolkien transmutes an invented mythology into gripping story in The Lord of the Rings, while conducting groundbreaking Old English scholarship and elucidating, for family and friends, the Catholic teachings at the heart of his vision. Owen Barfield, a philosopher for whom language is the key to all mysteries, becomes Lewis's favorite sparring partner, and, for a time, Saul Bellow's chosen guru. And Charles Williams, poet, author of "supernatural shockers," and strange acolyte of romantic love, turns his everyday life into a mystical pageant. Romantics who scorned rebellion, fantasists who prized reality, wartime writers who believed in hope, Christians with cosmic reach, the Inklings sought to revitalize literature and faith in the twentieth century's darkest years-and did so in dazzling style.

Samba Gadjigo presents a unique personal portrait and intellectual history of novelist and filmmaker Ousmane Sembà ̈ne. Though Sembà ̈ne has persistently deflected attention away from his personality, his life, and his past, Gadjigo has had unprecedented access to the artist and his family. This book is the first comprehensive biography of Sembà ̈ne and contributes a critical appraisal of his life and art in the context of the political and social influences on his work. Beginning with Sembà ̈ne's life in Casamance, Senegal, and ending with his militant career as a dockworker in Marseilles, Gadjigo places Sembà ̈ne into the context of African colonial and postcolonial culture and charts his achievements in film and literature. This landmark book reveals the inner workings of one of Africa's most distinguished and controversial figures.

"Waldo Frank (1889-1967) was an American writer and intellectual who had a vision of cultural union between Anglo and Hispanic America. In an attempt to explain and evaluate this apocalyptic message, which Frank expounded for over forty years, Michael A. Ogorzaly first traces the making of Frank the prophet, then analyzes Frank's major writing on Hispanic themes. Ogorzaly's analysis moves from Virgin Spain (1926), the book that posed Spain as an example for the New World (thus guaranteeing Frank a hearing in Latin America), to Cuba: Prophetic Island (1961), which saw Castro's revolution as the beginning of the realization of Frank's prophecy of hemispheric unity. The present work exposes the teleological nature of Frank's message. Emphasizing the preeminence of Latin American spirituality vis-a-vis the materialism of the U.S., Frank's conclusions were based on Latin American self-evaluations. Ogorzaly's study shows that - at a time when mutual understanding was weak - Waldo Frank served as a cultural bridge between North and South." "The 1920s witnessed an upsurge in the belief that the utopia was at hand. Waldo Frank provided one example of secular millennialist thinking. Combining a Spinozistic faith with a notion of the desirability of cultural union between the United States and Latin America, he arrived at his vision that the world's hope lay in the organic synthesis of the two Americas: North and South, Anglo and Hispanic. Persuaded that spiritual values still flourished in the Spanish-speaking realms, he set out in 1921 for Spain to confirm his intuition. The result was Virgin Spain, which imaged the land as a spiritual synthesis of its warring religions - a land whose people had achieved a kind of wholeness that would serve as an example for the New World in its striving for organic fusion." "Frank triumphantly toured South America in 1929 and returned there in 1942. Asked by the U.S. State Department to use his influence there to counteract Axis propaganda, he did so by preaching the organic philosophy of North-South harmony." "For the rest of his life, Frank continued to expound the same message - as is evident in Birth of a World (1951) and Cuba: Prophetic Island. Ogorzaly holds that his message rested on superficial study and observation. All too often, "facts" were employed only to bolster Frank's preconceived conclusions. Significantly, these conclusions usually coincided with Latin American self-evaluations formulated during the generations and resting on the conviction that spirituality was more highly prized in the lands to the south of the Rio Grande than it was to the north. In decrying materialism in North Americans, Frank essentially told Latin American cultural elites what they wanted to hear, and he thus assured himself a high standing among them. It was the regard for Frank, in fact, that perhaps best helped to win friends for the Good Neighbor policy among Latin Americans."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
