📒Burying The Bones ✍ Hilary Spurling
📝Burying The Bones Book Synopsis : Pearl Buck was raised in China by her American parents, Presbyterian missionaries from Virginia. Blonde and blue-eyed she looked startlingly foreign, but felt as at home as her Chinese companions. She ran free on the grave-littered grasslands behind her house, often stumbling across the tiny bones of baby girls who had been suffocated at birth. Buck's father was a terrifying figure, with a maniacal zeal for religious conversion - a passion rarely shared by the local communities he targeted. He drained the family's budget for his Chinese translation of the New Testament, while his aggrieved, long-suffering wife did her utmost to create a homely environment for her children, several of whom died tragically young. Pearl Buck would eventually rise to eminence in America as a bestselling author (her most renowned work, The Good Earth, re-entered the bestseller charts in 2004 when it was selected for Oprah's Book Club) but in this startlingly original biography, Spurling recounts with elegance and great insight her unspeakable upbringing in a China that was virtually unknown to the West.

📒The Good Earth Introduction To Earth Science ✍ Catherine Knight
📝The Good Earth Introduction to Earth Science Book Synopsis : The Good Earth is the product of collaboration between the content rigor provided by Earth Science specialists and the results of research on learning. The Good Earth has been explicitly designed to be compatible with active learning teaching strategies in the college classroom. The structural elements of this text will allow the instructor to incorporate these student-centered teaching methods into their Earth Science course. The authors have tested the book’s content and pedagogy in large Earth Science classes for non-majors that are populated with mostly freshmen. Their experiences show that the materials and methods in The Good Earth can improve students’ learning, increase daily attendance, reduce attrition, and increase students’ enthusiasm in comparison with classes taught following a traditional lecture format. The authors have chosen to emphasize three scientific themes throughout the text: i) scientific literacy; ii) Earth Science and the human experience; and, iii) the science of global change. The discussion of scientific methods is woven into the text throughout. They have included numerous examples of human interaction with the Earth that can serve as entry points for students to appreciate the nature of science. Global change is a theme that is evident in much current Earth Science research so our authors have used global change as a content theme throughout the book.
📒Female As A Sex Object In Buck S The Good Earth ✍ Vibha Rimal
📝Female as a Sex Object in Buck s The Good Earth Book Synopsis : Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, course: Humanities (English), language: English, abstract: Females are often viewed solely as de-personalized objects of desire instead of as individuals with complex personalities and desires or plans of their own. They also grow up in a culture with widespread sexual objectification and tend to view themselves as objects of the fulfillment of others' desires. This internalized sexual objectification can be linked to mental health as well. In the novel, patriarchy in general and other females in particular both insist that woman's role is to be the slave of her own sex as well as be a sexual object for males. The Good Earth, by Pearl S. Buck is a story of a peasant. Buck brilliantly portrays the isolation, dislocation and identity crisis of a typical Chinese society's woman. It is about the true status of the women in pre-revolutionary China, especially on the unloved life of a Chinese peasant's ugly wife. She has control over all the riches in her husband's life, she is a true better half in all the senses but still she faces the psychological trauma and remains only as a sex object to bear him children. This thesis concludes that the cultural upbringing, the patriarchy and the women's submissive and subservient nature results a woman to become a mere sex object in the hands of male counterpart.
