Phenomenology in the United States is in a state of ferment and change. Not all the changes are happy ones, however, for some of the most prominent philosophers of the first generation of phenomenologists have died: in 1959 Alfred Schutz, and within the past two years John \Vild, Dorion Cairns, and Aron Gur witsch. These thinkers, though often confronting a hostile intel lectual climate, were nevertheless persistent and profoundly influential-through their own works, and through their students. The two sources associated with their names, The Graduate Faculty of The New School for Social Research, and the circle around John Wild first at Harvard and later at Northwestern and Yale, produced a sizable portion of the now second gener ation American phenomenological philosophers. In a way, it was the very hostility of the American philo sophical milieu which became an important factor in the ferment now taking place. Although the older, first generation phenome nologists were deeply conversant with other philosophical move ments here and abroad, their efforts at meaningful dialogue were largely ignored. Determined not to remain isolated from the dominant currents of Anglo-American philosophy in par ticular, the second generation opened the way to a dialogue with analytic philosophers, especially through the efforts of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy, led by 2 INTRODUCTION such men as James M. Edie and Hubert Dreyfus and, in other respects, Herbert Spiegelberg and Maurice Natanson.

Stand and Face the Morning tells a robust, romantic story of the Musick and Lewis families of Colonial Virginia, who followed the migration down the Great Wagon Road into the backcountry of the Carolinas. The narrative follows them through the trials of hewing homesteads from the wilderness, wrestling with the choices of allegiance at the onset of the Revolutionary War, and struggling for survival as they are caught up in the bitter civil war which engulfs their homeland. The central figures are the patriarch Abram Musick and his wife Sarah, whose abiding love undergirds the family. Tormented eldest son Lewis carries within himself the wrongs and hurts he encounters. He joins brothers, cousins, and neighbors in the Patriot cause in his unholy quest for vengeance. Strong women characters walk beside their men and, through artistry and grace, produce families worthy of a new nation: Sarahs daughters Terrell and Sally, neighbor Saro Tweddy whose husband travels with Daniel Boone into Kentucky, and Annie McKinney whose eyes look ever toward the western lands. In the end, the families remain strong and loyal to one another. We are bound by ties of blood and by a love which will neer die. Together as family we shll face with hope whateer the morrow brings. Reviews Adventure and romance, joy and loss fill these pages as Owens lively story carries us along the rough trails of these wilderness roads. Sit and enjoy. - Jim Minick, author of Finding a Clear Path, Burning Heaven, and Her Secret Song. The American Revolution tears apart a frontier community in this gripping historical novel. When Abram and Sarah Musick lead their clanseven children with assorted servants, nephews and inlaws in towto White Oak Mountain on the western margins of North Carolina, they think theyve found paradise. In this region of virgin timber and rich bottomland, nature showers its bounty on them even when it almost kills them. (Well, I daresay the good thing is we shll have a haunch of bear with our huckleberry dumplings tomorrow. [sic]) Alas, the escalating quarrel between Britain and the colonies disrupts their bliss in their corner of the South, the revolution becomes a savage civil war pitting Patriots against Tories, Indians against whites, coastal planters and merchants against backwoods farmers and neighbor against neighbor. Abram wants to sit out the storm, but his sons, led by the brooding, impetuous Lewis, rally to the Patriot cause. Life doesnt stop just because theres a war onfarmers have to fit in stints of militia service around the cycle of planting and harvestingbut it grows increasingly desperate as Patriot settlers face raids by loyalist irregulars and their Cherokee allies. After his sweetheart is murdered by Tory marauders, Lewis leads his guerrilla band on a brutal campaign of vengeance as Sarah agonizes over the hardening of her sons heart. The authors limpid prose, steeped in the pious, musical language of the era, brings this absorbing narrative to life with well-observed period detail that encompasses everything from log-cabin building techniques to Sarahs herbal medicine. (Slippery-elm bark and fried onions, it seems, are great for gunshot wounds.) Owens brings readers the grit and trauma of the battlefield, but also the quieter rhythms of farming and trading, cooking and childcareand hoping anxiously for loved ones to return from peril. The result is an indelible portrait of a family struggling to hold together as the world turns upside down. A richly textured tale that registers epic events on the most intimate scale.

From the opening Sanskrit mantra to the final act of voting in South Africa's first democratic elections, this lyrical memoir provides a unique perspective on South Africa's modern history. The account shows how a young Hindu woman of Indian ancestry, living in South Africa in the 1940s, defied convention, married a Muslim man, and became an activist at time when Muslim women were seldom seen in such a role. As a teacher, she spoke up during the political strife of that highly segregated era, which included the relocation of Indians and angry student boycotts, and here shares her philosophies and insights into education. Filled with characters from both a personal and national context, the memoir captures the nuances of an important time and place.

"An inside view of the Lakota world-of the meaning of Lakota song and dance, of their history, of what it is to be Lakota in America today. . . . A lasting personal tribute to the Lakota way of living."-Whole Earth Review. "A unique, in-depth presentation on Lakota music and the profession of singer, a useful contemporary Oglala representation of the core of their culture, and a version of the involvement of the American Indian Movement on Pine Ridge Reservation, told by a man who was affiliated but not a principal leader. . . . This is a subjective statement, well and persuasively written."-Choice. Severt Young Bear stood in the light-in the center ring at powwows and other gatherings of Lakota people. As founder and, for many years, lead singer of the Porcupine Singers, a traditional singing and drumming group, he also stood, figuratively, in the light of understanding the cherished Lakota heritage. Young Bear's own life in Brotherhood Community, Porcupine District of the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation, is the linchpin of this narrative, which ranges across the landscape of Dakota culture, from the significance of names to the search for modern Lakota identity, from Lakota oral traditions to powwows and giveaways, from child-rearing practices to humor and leadership. "Music is at the center of Lakota life, " says Young Bear; he describes in rich detail the origins and varieties of Lakota song and dance. Severt Young Bear performed with the Porcupine Singers throughout North America, taught at Oglala Lakota College, and served on the Oglala Sioux tribal council. He was music and dance consultant for the films Dances with Wolves and Thunder Heart. This book is the fruit of his longfriendship and collaboration with R. D. Theisz, a fellow Porcupine Singer and professor of communications and education at Black Hills State University.
