In the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, municipallaws targeting "unsightly beggars" sprang up in cities across America. Seeming to criminalize disability and thus offering a visceral example of discrimination, these “ugly laws” have become a sort of shorthand for oppression in disability studies, law, and the arts. In this watershed study of the ugly laws, Susan M. Schweik uncovers the murky history behind the laws, situating the varied legislation in its historical context and exploring in detail what the laws meant. Illustrating how the laws join the history of the disabled and the poor, Schweik not only gives the reader a deeper understanding of the ugly laws and the cities where they were generated, she locates the laws at a crucial intersection of evolving and unstable concepts of race, nation, sex, class, and gender. Moreover, she explores the history of resistance to the ordinances, using the often harrowing life stories of those most affected by their passage. Moving to the laws’ more recent history, Schweik analyzes the shifting cultural memory of the ugly laws, examining how they have been used—and misused—by academics, activists, artists, lawyers, and legislators.

Since 2004 Gavin Stamp, one of Britains most eminent and readable architectural historians, has written a monthly column for Apollo, the esteemed architecture and fine art magazine. The subject is simply whatever in design or architecture happens to take his fancy. It might be the splendid reopening of the magnificent Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, or the dilapidation of a little-known church in Eastbourne, the much-lamented demise of the original Routemaster bus, or the colossal majesty of the airship sheds that housed the R.101.
This study offers an original and innovative collection of fresh approaches to the investigation of the concept of ugliness. It is divided into three parts: the idea of ugliness; Kantian conceptions of the ugly; and ugliness and art. The papers in all three sections deal with problems in the way that aesthetics has understood the concept of the ugly, in aesthetic experience, in fine art, and in contrast with the beautiful. These are new papers from a range of scholars from diverse philosophical backgrounds, and use the most recent literature in their areas of expertise. There is no other book available that collects the latest research in this field, and, as such, it will be a key contribution to recent and growing theoretical interest in the place of the ugly in aesthetics.

Ngai mobilizes the aesthetics of unprestigious negative affects such as irritation, envy, and disgust to investigate not only ideological and representational dilemmas in literature--with a particular focus on those inflected by gender and race--but also blind spots in contemporary literary and cultural criticism. Her work maps a major intersection of literary studies, media and cultural studies, feminist studies, and aesthetic theory.

Baseball, our national pastime. Every fan has memories of their team’s incredible victories and anguishing defeats. We remember the home runs, the walk-off wins, and the moments that will last a lifetime. We also remember those things which we wish we could forget: the errors, the mental mistakes . . . and the ugly uniforms. In an ode to those eyesores, Todd Radom has collected and chronicled some of the swing-and-misses we’ve ever seen on the baseball diamond. Remember when the Chicago White Sox thought wearing shorts in 1977 was a good idea? How about when the Baltimore Orioles wore their all-orange jerseys in 1971? Do you remember the 1999 “Turn Ahead the Clock” campaign? Or the most recent all-camo jerseys of San Diego Padres? Yes, there is much to talk about when it comes to the odd uniform decisions teams have made over the years. But just like there’s love out there for French bulldogs or Christmas sweaters, ugly uniforms hold a warm place in the heart of all baseball fans. Sure they didn’t affect wins and losses (unless you mention Chris Sale), but a fan’s love and ire goes well beyond the current standings. So whether your team appears in Ugly Baseball Uniforms or not, fans of the sport will enjoy reliving the moments most teams would like to forget.
Andrew and his little sister, Lily, live with their parents in Texas. Since their grandparents reside nearby, they are always happy to visit them and learn new things about the world especially from wise Pappa Rayson. The siblings usually get along, but one day, they start arguing. Pappa Rayson decides it's time to teach his grandchildren the lesson of the ugly bug. He explains that the ugly bug of selfishness is invisible, but when he bites, he makes brothers and sisters fight. But that nasty bug also does something else: he makes them look ugly. Horrified by the thought of being ugly, Andrew and Lily ask their grandfather what they can do to get rid of the ugly bug. The only way to do this, Pappa says, is to make a beautiful butterfly. That means Andrew and Lily will have to find forgiveness in their hearts toward each other. It's not easy to do, but the children are determined to rid themselves of the ugly bug once and for all! Through helpful imagery, The Ugly Bug and the Beautiful Butterfly artfully teaches children how the unseen spiritual world co-exists with the physical world.

Age: 8-9 years old Reading Level: 3rd grade The best illustrated fairytales for children! Once upon a time was a mother duck who was admiring her newborns. One of the eggs had not hatched yet and she began to worry. She continued to sit on it and, one fine day, the egg cracked and a strange duckling appeared. Very quickly, the other ducklings started to make fun of him because he was not very pretty and he looked different. They then decided to rename him "the ugly little duckling". The collection "Once Upon a Time" offers a new and richly illustrated version of the most famous fairytales. EXCERPT One beautiful sunny morning, by the edge of a small pond, mother duck was admiring with joy her little ducklings coming out of their shells. But one egg was very big and it didn’t hatch. Another duck who was passing by congratulated the proud mother when he saw the large egg and said, “It’s probably a turkey egg.” In the same collection: • Thumbelina • The Brave Little Tailor • The Tin Soldier • The Musicians of Bremen • Hansel and Gretel • Three Little Pigs • Beauty and the Beast • Goldilocks and the 3 Bears • The Little Thumb • Puss in Boots • Little Red Riding Hood • Sleeping Beauty • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs • Cinderella • Peter Pan
The female medical examiner of the 21st century had provoked a handsome man as soon as she teleported. Not only did he jump into a murder mystery, but he was also ugly enough to shock the world and make the gods cry. His birth father didn't like it, his sisters were hypocritical, and the crown prince ruined the marriage! What could he do? Of course it was to go back to the old ways and live on! This infuriated him to death. He tore apart the white lotuses with his hands, kicked out the dregs with his feet, broke through all the mysteries, and from then on, ascended to the peak of his life. Hey, what's going on with that devilish man? He despised her figure! They despised her for being ugly! But it would always come! She angrily roared at him, "Scram! I don't need a man in my world!"
The tales in The Last Ugly Person and Other Stories explore these and other themes using a variety of mythological settings. Both entertaining and thought provoking, these short stories are novellas written from an unapologetically Christian viewpoint. Awash in hope, yet fully recognizing the agony of sin and destruction, these stories avoid both sugary unreality and bleak pessimism, weaving instead a rich and intricate tapestry that reflects the complex ways in which man responds to the call of Christ. These are very well told stories that are enjoyable to read, and at the same time incarnate Christian truths in a way that is genuinely literary and quite believable, while indirectly delving into the deeper meaning of the human personality, the mystery of evil, and the goodness of God.
