The comprehensive high school, in which all curricula, extracurricular activities,
and athletics were included, was the model for the American secondary school in
the first half of the century. It was in the social life of the comprehensive high

the sacred autonomy of images and pictures. His textualist iconoclasm at once
undermines a key verity of modern art and yet restores the primacy of the
classical Jewish commentarial imperative. Kitaj was not always conscious of the
Jewish pedigree of this imperative, but, as he relates in the First Diasporist
Manifesto, he always felt himself to be "a Diasporist painter from the start" (31).
The road toward his awakening as a Jewish/Diasporist painter began in the late
1950s, when he ...

What are the most appropriate and least appropriate symbols? In short, what's
the right cultural palette for them? The answers can never be certain, but they can
be culturally wise and savvy.17 Moriarty and Rohe note that the best symbols for
the Mexican-American culture are linked to the family: for example, sitting at the
kitchen table, sitting on a porch, or children playing with homemade toys or the
family pet. Elements that would not be part of this palette include images of the
Alamo, ...

However, a focus on the negative images present in African-American life and
culture—and mirrored in black drama—serves a vital function. These images act
as clues or keys to critically examine elements within the culture that need to be
addressed in any attempt to liberate African-American experience from an
internalized white supremacist worldview. Such a task is also central to the
challenge of healing, strengthening, and renewing the black family living in a
violent age. Chapter ...

He can exercise very little autonomous control over what is reaching his mind
and senses, nor can he react or interact with other viewers in any significant way
because the stream of sounds and images goes rolling on, and one is afraid to
speak or look away for fear of missing something or causing other viewers to do
so. Moreover, in order to prevent the viewer's attention from wandering, authors
and producers of programs see to it that no image remains on the screen too long

The concept has generated a fair amount of attention over the years among those
interested in American government and politics. Some, such as Alexis de
Tocqueville, have argued that the United States is largely a classless society, and
that as such class-related concerns are usually not terribly prevalent in American
politics.1 Others, such as V.O. Key, are skeptical of such claims and therefore

Miyatake's Manzanar photographs are all the more extraordinary because the
use and control of pictures was a key dimension of the United States

in the popular press dehumanized people of Japanese descent, the confiscation
of cameras and photographs curtailed the possibility of alternative portrayals of
Japanese American life. The Photo Studio Until his wartime incarceration, Toyo
