Sinopsis: Book by Renoff Gregory J

Críticas: "Renoff considers the issues of race, class, gender, religion, economics, cultural content, violence and rowdyism, regional identity, local self-interest, and audience behavior as it relates to the traveling circus. A reader comes away from the book with a good sense of the circus experience as seen from a variety of perspectives: those of local audiences, retailers, and government officials on the one hand and circus owners, promoters, and performers on the other hand. "The Big Tent" is an important contribution to the historiographies of the South, the circus, and American popular culture."--Steve Goodson, author of "Highbrows, Hillbillies, and Hellfire: Public Entertainment in Atlanta, 1880-1930" "Superb and revelatory."--"Journal of American History" "Although the circus has become, in recent years, an important scholarly subject, few works have approached the circus through a regional lens. This book will make significant contributions to the fields of cultural and social history, American studies, theater history, and business history and will have special appeal to historians of the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the South more generally. Circus enthusiasts will also find this work indispensable."--Janet Davis, author of "The Circus Age: Culture and Society under the American Big Top" Superb and revelatory.--Journal of American History Renoff considers the issues of race, class, gender, religion, economics, cultural content, violence and rowdyism, regional identity, local self-interest, and audience behavior as it relates to the traveling circus.

Descripción University of Georgia Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. For many people, the circus, with its clowns, exotic beasts, and other colourful iconography, is lighthearted entertainment. Yet for Greg Renoff and other scholars, the circus and its social context also provide a richly suggestive repository of changing attitudes about race, class, religion, and consumerism. In the South during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, travelling circuses fostered social spaces where people of all classes and colours could grapple with the region s upheavals. The Big Tent relates the circus experience from the perspectives of its diverse audiences, telling what locals might have seen and done while the show was in town. Renoff digs deeper, too. He points out, for instance, that the performances of these itinerant outfits in Jim Crow-era Georgia allowed boisterous, unrestrained interaction between blacks and whites on show lots and on city streets on Circus Day. Renoff also looks at encounters between southerners and the largely northern population of circus owners, promoters, and performers, who were frequently accused of inciting public disorder and purveying lowbrow prurience, in part due to residual anger over the Civil War. By recasting itself as a showcase of athleticism, equestrian skill, and God s wondrous animal creations, the circus appeased community leaders, many of whose businesses prospered during circus visits. Ranging across a changing social, cultural, and economic landscape, The Big Tent tells a new history of what happened when the circus came to town, from the time it travelled by wagon and river barge through its heyday during the railroad era and into its initial decline in the age of the automobile and mass consumerism.
