American Illustration 35
For over 30 years, American Illustration has gathered a group of art and design experts to review work that was produced over the past year and select outstanding, well-crafted pieces in order to celebrate, honor and preserve a powerful art form; one that can be as heedlessly ubiquitous (and disposable) as what's seen on a cereal box, but can all too often help change the world. In a year that brought the anticipation of a presidential campaign, two deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, refugees of a civil war desperate to find a new home, the loss of artist David Bowie, tragic shootings by police of young, unarmed black men, and gender-inequality issues to the headlines, the jury selected only 337 images from over 10,000 submitted to our annual competition to represent the best illustration of the year 2015. American Illustration 35 spares no expense in presenting the winning artists and their acclaimed works in a deluxe, oversized, hardcover tome, luxuriously printed and bound this year in a gilded and die-cut slipcase box. Created by illustrator and comic artist Benjamin Marra, the book features an original wrap-around cover depicting a future despotic society in which truth is built on a foundation of myths, life is an afterthought, and liberty, civility and the pursuit of happiness have all been sold to the highest bidder. (A parental advisory label may be required). AI35 is under the creative direction and design by Matt Dorfman, illustrator and art director for the New York Times Book Review. At 384 gilded pages, American Illustration 35 presents the most captivating gallery in print.

American Photography 32
Our insatiable desire for pictures has intensified as new technologies allow for the creation and distribution of photographs to transpire at lightening speed anytime, anywhere, shot with nothing more than a sophisticated smart phone, or more traditional camera equipment and crew - and film? Either way, our greatest skilled photographers bravely venture into the world to capture and deliver what they encounter, and bring back remarkable and powerful results of vision and artistry for our publications, advertising campaigns and books. This is what inspires our juries every year to gather, review and select the best images from about 9,000 submitted to our annual competition. This year's extraordinary collection of just 335 pictures again demonstrates the capability exceptionally trained and talented photographers have to inform, inspire and provoke the viewer. With a determined eagerness, the photographers in AP32 covered stories that made headlines and dominated news cycles, and sought untold stories often overlooked that otherwise would have gone without our notice. Stirring photos of Syrian refugees, left without a country as a result of their ongoing civil war, prevailed this year with many selected for the collection as shot by Paula Bronstein, Yuri Kozyrev, Antonio Masiello, Paolo Pellegrin and Sergey Ponomarev. The run up to the presidential primaries brought new and familiar faces from both parties in revealing portraits by Nate Gowdy, Aristide Economopolous and Mark Peterson. AP32 features topics as broad as LGBT refugees in Africa by Jake Naughton and activist Zanele Muholi; Celebrity portraits; Food (glorious food); the homeless on Skid Row by Pieter Hugo; and a strip club that runs the music scene in Atlanta by Lauren Greenfield. American Photography 32, at 400 gilded pages, is a time capsule in the making of the year 2015.

American Settlements and Migrations
A Primer for Genealogists and Family Historians By Lloyd de Witt Bockstruck This book provides a synopsis of the original patterns of settlement and migration for the United States. Mr. Bockstruck discusses each of the 50 states; however, his emphasis is on the states and territories that were established between the colonial period and the middle of the 19th century. For each state the author examines pioneers' places of origin, reasons for settlement, specific places of settlement in America, names of pioneering families, migrations within and between states, and more. Equally important, throughout the volume he names the key sources for further research. The study of migration is inextricably intertwined with family history. By combining a knowledge of history and geography, therefore, the family historian can extend the family pedigree across the country. Every detail represents a potential clue to an elusive ancestor, from the name of a shipping line, port of embarkation, and clusters of fellow passengers, to the nature of soil available to the colonist, church membership, and status of roadways. Some members of the family may not have ventured away from the ancestral home. Others went westward but did not continue as far as some of their kinfolk. They may have generated the records further inland that would enable you to bridge an ancestral geographical gap. Finding earlier places of residence could help you determine the place of nativity of an ancestor. Following such paths could also help you locate relatives who remained in the East or dropped off earlier along the migration route, and as a result, aid in the identification of the immigrant or colonist who founded the family in the New World and perhaps the ancestral home in the Old World as well. The study of migration/immigration follows several principles. First, a family historian must understand the local history of his or her ancestral homes. For example, as late as 1950, the state possessing the greatest percentage of residents of British descent was Utah. Why? Utah was settled by Mormons, and this relatively new religious group was mostly composed of New England Puritan stock. Moreover, that church's first missionary efforts abroad were conducted in the British Isles, and those converts joined them in Utah. Secondly, migrations are also tied to similar climatic belts. Colonists and immigrants often sought out lands that were capable of growing the crops with which they were familiar, as in the case of Scandinavian settlements in Minnesota and the Dakotas. Thirdly, migration rests upon forces that draw immigrants to a new home. It may also apply to those forces that drove them away from their home. In some instances both aspects may apply. For instance, more than 150,000 natives of Virginia were living in the states of the Old Northwest Territory in 1850-an area accessible to them and possessing terrain with which they were familiar.

An American Marriage
A Novel Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy's conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together. This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward--with hope and pain--into the future.

Arguments for Liberty
Edited by Aaron Ross Powell and Grant Babcock Two schools of thought have long dominated libertarian discussions about ethics: utilitarianism and natural rights. Those two theories are important, but they're not the only ways people think about ethics and political philosophy. In Arguments for Liberty, you'll find a broader approach to libertarianism. In each of Arguments for Liberty's nine chapters a different political philosopher discusses how his or her preferred school of thought judges political institutions and why libertarianism best meets that standard. Though they end up in the same place, the paths they take diverge in fascinating ways. Readers will find in these pages not only an excellent introduction to libertarianism, but also a primer on some of the most important political and ethical theories. Assuming little or no training in academic philosophy, the essays guide readers through a continuous moral conversation spanning centuries and continents, from Aristotle in ancient Athens to twentieth-century philosopher John Rawls in the halls of Harvard. What's the best political system? What standards should we use to decide, and why? Arguments for Liberty is a guide to thinking about these questions. It's also a powerful, nine-fold argument for the goodness and importance of human liberty.

Bad Arguments
By Ali Almossawi Illustrated by Alejandro Giraldo "A flawless compendium of flaws." -Alice Roberts, PhD, anatomist, writer, and presenter of The Incredible Human Journey The antidote to fuzzy thinking, with furry animals! Have you read (or stumbled into) one too many irrational online debates? Ali Almossawi certainly had, so he wrote An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments! This handy guide is here to bring the internet age a much-needed dose of old-school logic (really old-school, a la Aristotle). Here are cogent explanations of the straw man fallacy, the slippery slope argument, the ad hominem attack, and other common attempts at reasoning that actually fall short—plus a beautifully drawn menagerie of animals who (adorably) commit every logical faux pas. Rabbit thinks a strange light in the sky must be a UFO because no one can prove otherwise (the appeal to ignorance). And Lion doesn't believe that gas emissions harm the planet because, if that were true, he wouldn't like the result (the argument from consequences). Once you learn to recognize these abuses of reason, they start to crop up everywhere from congressional debate to YouTube comments—which makes this geek-chic book a must for anyone in the habit of holding opinions.

By Terry Brown - AN AFFORDABLE SHORT TEXTBOOK FOR INTRODUCTORY COURSES IN BIOCHEMISTRY - Biochemistry is a major new textbook designed and created specifically for briefer courses in the subject. Written by Prof. Terry Brown of the University of Manchester (author of Genomes and Gene Cloning), the book provides the necessary detail and rigor expected for these courses, but without the extraneous material found in the larger textbooks. With an increasing number of students taking a shorter course in biochemistry there is a growing need for a book that covers the subject concisely and succinctly. Biochemistry has been designed from the outset for these shorter courses; it is not a cut-down version of one of the larger books that dominate the market. Although it is shorter, there is no compromise in content, style and coverage. The book is attractively designed in full color throughout with all the pedagogical features expected in a major textbook. It covers what your students should be expected to know and is written in the clear and accurate writing style for which Terry Brown is widely lauded. With its competitive price and resources for adopting lecturers ( all of the illustrations and diagrams from the book, and answers to the end of chapter questions), Biochemistry will become the textbook of choice for any brief biochemistry course.

Citizenship and the American Revolution: A Resolute Tory’s Abiding Status
Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Volume 106, Part 3 David W. Maxey What was the status of a resident of New Jersey or Pennsylvania on July 5, 1776, or for several months, even years, after the Declaration of Independence? When did a person living in one of the rebellious colonies cease to be the subject of George III and become a citizen of a newly constituted American state? Well into the nineteenth century, uncertainty persisted regarding citizenship acquired (or lost) during the Revolution. Turning to original sources, David Maxey brings into clear focus a family dispute over inheritance rights and the task the United States Supreme Court faced in determining the status of Daniel Coxe—either as a citizen of New Jersey entitled to inherit, or as an alien barred from doing so. Having heard the arguments of opposing counsel on two separate occasions, the Supreme Court announced its decision in 1808. Twenty years later, the Court measurably diverged from the rationale supporting that decision.

Conflict Management and Dialogue in Higher Education: A Global Perspective
By: Nancy T. Watson, Texas A&M University Karan L, Watson, Texas A&M University Christine A. Stanley, Texas A&M University This book addresses an important topic - Conflict, mediation and dialogue. Conflicts are a part of life. Although many people assume conflicts are negative and, therefore, should be avoided, conflict is truly neutral. The engagement in conflict is what can be constructive or destructive. There are many positive outcomes experienced when a conflict is well managed, hence the critical role of this book. For instance, most change is driven by some level of conflict. You must learn, grow and develop effective conflict management skills as a way to manage change. Thus, the conflicts we deal with in our personal lives and in the workplace are essential to our development and our organizations' healthy development. However, managed poorly, some conflicts can escalate to the point that they can destroy individuals or organizations. As illustrated in this book, the key to managing conflicts is to understand conflicts; expect conflicts, and manage conflicts before they escalate into destructive or costly loss of personnel, diminished climate or lead to lawsuits. The book provides one of the growing and recognized methods of dealing with conflicts - mediation and dialogue. The contents of this book reflect areas of importance addressed in mediation training: alternative dispute resolution practices, conflict management intervention options, models of thinking about conflict, the mediation format, and the skill set needed by a strong conflict management and mediator. Readers are challenged to reflect upon their biases and beliefs that may negatively impact the mediation process.

Crossover Pedagogy: A Rationale for a New Teaching Partnership Between Faculty and Student Affairs Leaders on College Campuses
By: Robert Nash, The University of Vermont Jennifer J. J. Jang, Champlain College Patricia C. Nguyen, University of California, Los Angeles As authors, we are convinced that the time has finally arrived in academe for an extensive, experience-based, firsthand, seamless examination of what we are calling crossover pedagogy. There is no book-length examination of faculty and student affairs administrators collaboration in the academic realm anywhere. Nobody has yet to produce a case-based, hands-on, book-length treatment of how (and why) faculty and student affairs administrators can co-teach, co-author, and co-consult with one another as co-equal educators and campus leaders-with each group complementing the other in terms of their special skills, knowledge, background, and experiences. Without coming to practical terms with the case for collaboration that the above authors make, the why rationale developed in these publications on the topic of faculty-administrator collaboration (sometimes referred to as "blended" efforts) around the teaching-learning venture is lost in the logistics of technical policy issues and challenges.

A masterwork of recipes, approach, technique, and philosophy, David Tanis Market Cooking is as inspiring as it is essential. This is how to become a more intuitive and spontaneous cook.

This is how to transform the freshest ingredients into one perfectly delicious dish after another, guided by the core beliefs that have shaped David Tanis's incomparable career: Food doesn't have to be fussy to be satisfying. Seasonal vegetables should be central to a meal. Working with food is a joy, not a chore.

A Writer's Life By Lee Smith For the inimitable Lee Smith, place is paramount. For forty-five years, her fiction has lived and breathed with the rhythms and people of the Appalachian South. But never before has she written her own story. Set deep in the mountains of Virginia, the Grundy of Lee Smith's youth was a place of coal miners, tent revivals, mountain music, drive-in theaters, and her daddy's dimestore. It was in that dimestore--listening to customers and inventing adventures for the store's dolls--that she became a storyteller. Even when she was sent off to college to earn some "culture," she understood that perhaps the richest culture she might ever know was the one she was driving away from--and it's a place that she never left behind. Dimestore's fifteen essays are crushingly honest, wise and perceptive, and superbly entertaining. Smith has created both a moving personal portrait and a testament to embracing one's heritage. It's also an inspiring story of the birth of a writer and a poignant look at a way of life that has all but vanished.

Double Dunk
By Barry Beckham "This is a book which every high school and perhaps junior high school student should read." -Jerry Izenberg, Newark Star Ledger "A tough, streetwise novel packed with an important message for your readers." -Ambassador Andrew Young Earl "The Goat" Manigault had what it takes to become a superstar: incredible leaping ability, great timing, and unstoppable moves. He set a New York City junior high school record by scoring 52 points in one game. In high school and on the playgrounds of Harlem, he astonished opponents with his acrobatic shots, including the patented double dunk. Although seventy-two colleges offered him scholarships, lack of discipline and bad breaks sent Manigault stumbling into a world of heroin addiction and petty crimes for three years. He succumbed to the fast lane life that sapped the lives of so many of his friends in the 1960s. The Goat kicked the habit, however, and then returned to Harlem to start his own summer basketball league for black youth. This inspiring story of how one man rebuilt his life is told with vivid, no-holds-barred descriptions of the harshness, humor and love in today's inner city.

Dust Bowl Girls
The Inspiring Story of the Team That Barnstormed Its Way to Basketball Glory By Lydia Reeder "A thrilling, cinematic story. I loved every minute I spent with these bold, daring women whose remarkable journey is the stuff of American legend." -Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy The Boys in the Boat meets A League of Their Own in this true story of a Depression-era championship women's team. In the early 1930s, during the worst drought and financial depression in American history, Sam Babb began to dream. Like so many others, this charismatic Midwestern basketball coach wanted a reason to have hope. Traveling from farm to farm near the tiny Oklahoma college where he coached, Babb recruited talented, hardworking young women and offered them a chance at a better life: a free college education in exchange for playing on his basketball team, the Cardinals. Despite their fears of leaving home and the sacrifices that their families would face, the women joined the team. And as Babb coached the Cardinals, something extraordinary happened. These remarkable athletes found a passion for the game and a heartfelt loyalty to one another and their coach--and they began to win. Combining exhilarating sports writing and exceptional storytelling, Dust Bowl Girls takes readers on the Cardinals' intense, improbable journey all the way to an epic showdown with the prevailing national champions, helmed by the legendary Babe Didrikson. Lydia Reeder captures a moment in history when female athletes faced intense scrutiny from influential figures in politics, education, and medicine who denounced women's sports as unhealthy and unladylike. At a time when a struggling nation was hungry for inspiration, this unlikely group of trailblazers achieved much more than a championship season.

What Everyone Should Know About Economics and the Environment By Richard L. Stroup It's one thing to be passionate about protecting the environment. It's another to be successful at it. This history of environmentalism includes a constant shift from one concern to another, and many laws have been enacted to clean up pollution or preserve natural beauty. However, many of these laws are ineffective and others have had unintended consequences. In this updated edition, Richard Stroup explains how economics applies to environmental decision making, why many of our environmental laws have failed us, and how we might go about doing a better job of protecting nature. Eco-nomics is an indispensable guide to learning how to think about both economics and the environment.

Economic Freedom of the World Report 2016
By James Gwartney, Joshua Hall, and Robert Lawson Global economic freedom increased slightly in this year's report to 6.85. Hong Kong and Singapore retain the top two positions with a score of 9.03 and 8.71 out of 10, respectively. The rest of this year's top scores are New Zealand, 8.35; Switzerland, 8.25; Canada, Georgia, Ireland, Mauritius, and the United Arab Emirates at 7.98; and Australia and the United Kingdom at 7.93. The United States, once considered a bastion of economic freedom, ranks 16th for a second consecutive year with a score of 7.75. Due to a weakening rule of law, increasing regulation, and the ramifications of wars on terrorism and drugs, the United States has seen its economic freedom score plummet in recent years, compared to 2000 when it ranked second globally. The rankings of other large economies in this year's index are Germany (30th), Japan (40th), South Korea (42nd), France (57th), Italy (69th), Mexico (88th), Russia (102nd), India (112th), China (113th), and Brazil (124th).

Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Volume 106, Part 2 James F. O'Gorman This is the first in-depth study of the career of an important antebellum American architect and author. It is a contribution to the history of architecture and the history of the book.

Emerging Web 3.0/Semantic Web Applications in Higher Education: Growing Personalization and Wider Interconnections in Learning
Edited by: Charles Wankel, Ph.D. Phd., St. John's University, New York Agata Stachowicz-Stanusch, Silesian University of Technology, Poland A volume in the series: Research in Management Education and Development. Editor(s): Charles Wankel, Ph.D., St. John's University, New York. The Web is evolving from a place where a prodigious amount of text and images are stored to a place where educational and other needs are serviced. The Web is becoming increasingly automated with functions that previously required human action undertaken automatically moving learners and other users more quickly to useful support. More and more such services interoperate with each other through computer programs and agents. This is the territory of semantic Web services and Web 3.0. Just as shop bots and auction bots abound in handling a particular task on the Web currently, in higher education of the future such related bots and agents will interact with the heterogeneous information that is the stuff of higher education. The scale of such agent-based mediation and linked data will grow over time. Increasingly, intelligent agents and bots will undertake tasks on behalf of their faculty, administrator, and student owners. Collaborations among faculty and students around the world will be increasingly supported by semantic social networks capable of providing crucial functions. Students can be engaged in participating in the design and development of semantic Web applications in such areas as structuring and representing knowledge. The increasing availability of interactive educational tools and collaborative community-resources, such as wikis, can be the foundation for deploying semantically marked-up and social-connected educational spaces where students construct their own learning pathways in explorations of knowledge and creating new content integration. This volume will share visions and partial realizations of the impact of the semantic Web and associated Web 3.0 features on higher education. This volume will provide accounts of cutting-edge pedagogic applications of the semantic Web with its extremely extensive use of interconnecting information technologies.

Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace. Revised Third Edition
By Elizabeth Shown Mills Evidence Explained is the definitive guide to the citation and analysis of historical sources--a guide so thorough that it leaves nothing to chance. While countless websites now suggest ways to identify their offerings, few of those address the analytical needs of a researcher concerned with the nature and provenance of web material, whose numerous incarnations and transformations often affect the reliability of their content. In the two years since the Third Edition was published, changes at major repositories and online information providers--as well as the ever-evolving electronic world--have generated new citation and analysis challenges for researchers. As a consequence, Mrs. Mills has once again revised her citation models and added descriptions and evaluations of numerous contemporary materials not included in the original Third Edition. Here are the major changes you will find in this revised Third Edition: •Changes to about 75 pages in the text and index •New citations for the National Archives (NARA) website and manner of identifying documents •Updates for citing DAR's revamped website and databases •Alterations in citations for the DAR website and database •Immigration citations reflecting changed records at the Ellis Island website ** Library Journal's Best Reference 2007 ** ** Winner of the National Genealogical Society's 2008 Award of Excellence**

Ferocious Resolve: Politics, Courage, and What it's Like to be a Professor
By: Autumn Cyprès, St. John's University, New York City This is a critical examination of the people who teach and produce research and scholarship in our institutions of higher education. The insights revealed through probing interviews with individual professors who have made careers in the halls of academia help readers understand the politics, power struggles and perils, both large and small, which shape the modern university. Given the important role these institutions play in our society, such an examination is not only helpful, but essential. This book is a helpful primer for faculty looking to build a career and those interested in understanding how professors are tasked in their profession. Endorsements: "I can think of no question more commonly asked among academics, new and veteran alike, than what it means to flourish in this profession, particularly for those who speak against the grain. In this important new book, Autumn Cypres draws on the voices of established scholars in order to bring clarity and insight to the competing implicit and explicit rules and contested political and cultural terrains that we all must navigate. Readers will find helpful advice not merely to succeed in this profession, but to change the profession itself." - Kevin Kumashiro, University of San Francisco "Professor Cypres' book is a wake up call to the professoriate to rescue our profession from the clutches of those wanting to make scholars obedient servants of power. Her analysis and prescriptions provide guidelines and hope for revitalizing and energizing this once honored profession." - From the foreword by Joel Spring, Queens College and Graduate Center, City University of New York In this important new book, Autumn Tooms Cypres provides her readers with a critical examination of the people who teach and produce research and scholarship in our institutions of higher education. The insights she reveals through her probing interviews with individual professors who have made careers in the halls of academia help us to understand the politics, power struggles and perils, both large and small, which shape the modern university. Given the important role these institutions play in our society, such an examination is not only helpful, but essential. - Pedro A. Noguera, New York University

Focusing on the Underserved: Immigrant, Refugee, and Indigenous Asian American and Pacific Islanders in Higher Education
Edited by: Sam D. Museus, Indiana University Amefil Agbayani, University of Hawai'i at Manoa Doris M. Ching, University of Hawai'i Recent discussions and dissemination of information regarding the rapid growth of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) across our nation are creating some awareness among administrators and educators in higher education institutions regarding the extensive diversity of AAPIs, the struggles of some AAPI populations in pursuing and succeeding in higher education, and the lack of support for their educational success. National discourse on AAPIs among educators, policymakers and AAPI communities underscores the need for more research-including more relevant research-that can inform policy and practice that will enhance educational opportunities for AAPIs who are underserved in higher education. The book focuses on diverse topics, many of which do not appear in the current literature. The chapters are authored by an array of distinguished and emerging scholars and professionals at various universities and colleges across the nation. The authors, whose insights are invaluable in understanding the diverse issues and characteristics that affect the educational success of underserved AAPI students, and they represent the ethnicities and cultures of Cambodian, Chinese, Guamanian/Chamorro, Filipino, Hispanic, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Native Hawaiian, Okinawan, Samoan, Vietnamese, and multiracial Americans. The authors not only integrate theoretical concepts, statistical analyses, and historical events, but they also merge theory and practice to advocate for social justice for AAPIs and other underrepresented and underserved ethnic minority groups in higher education.

Freedom in the 50 States
By William P. Ruger and Jason Sorens An index of personal and economic freedom. This study ranks the American states according to how their public policies affect individual freedoms in the economic, social, and personal spheres. Updating, expanding, and improving upon the three previous editions of Freedom in the 50 States, the 2016 edition examines state and local government intervention across a wide range of policy categories -- from tax burdens to court systems, from eminent domain laws to occupational licensing, and from homeschooling regulation to drug policy. Freedom in the 50 States remains the only index that measures both economic and personal freedoms.

From Across the Spanish Empire: Spanish Soldiers Who Helped Win the American Revolutionary War, 1776-1783
[Arizona, California, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas Military Rosters] By Leroy Martinez Although it is frequently overlooked, the Spanish Empire, under King Carlos III, provided significant aid and support for America's struggle for independence from Great Britain. For example, after Spain declared war on Great Britain in June 1779 (in conjunction with its familial alliance with France), the Spanish governor of Louisiana, Bernardo de Galvez, commenced the military campaigns against the British that ultimately resulted in their ouster from the Mississippi Valley and West Florida. In another instance, when the French fleet under the Comte de Grasse was not able to pay its sailors and soldiers, Spain provided de Grasse with the needed funds, thus enabling the siege at Yorktown against Cornwallis. This book by Leroy Martinez is the first work to identify the Spanish combatants serving in North America during the American Revolution. The volume begins with a listing of Spanish governors, Spanish presidios (forts) in the future United States, a glossary of Spanish terms that appear in the records, and a chronology of events--all for the years of the Revolution. Here readers will learn that Spain's involvement in our War for Independence preceded that nation's declaration of war against Britain in 1779. For instance, Spain, through the agency of merchant Diego de Gardoqui in Bilbao, sent money, muskets, munitions, medicine, and military supplies to the U.S. as early as 1776. Gardoqui later became Spain's first ambassador to America. At the heart of Mr. Martinez' groundbreaking book, of course, are the lists of Spanish soldiers of this era. Separate chapters list those who served in Arizona, California, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas. In most cases Mr. Martinez identifies each soldier by name, military unit, rank and date, and the source, as well as sometimes by age, place of origin in Europe, theater served in, and other factors. The author extracted his lists of servicemen from original sources found in the Archives of Spanish Naval Museum in Madrid, the U.S. Library of Congress, and in state archives in Texas, Arizona, and California. He has also included a number of illustrations of military uniforms, original documents, and other artifacts from the era--including the records of his own ancestors. In all, From Across the Spanish Empire sheds light upon 7,500 Spanish combatants who served in North America during the American Revolution, any one of whom could qualify a descendant for membership in the Sons of the American Revolution or related lineage organizations.

Genealogy at a Glance: Georgia Genealogy Research
By Michael A. Ports Michael A. Ports--author of the groundbreaking series Georgia Free Persons of Color as well as numerous volumes of transcribed records from Baldwin, Elbert, and especially Jefferson County, Georgia--applies his expertise in Georgia genealogy research to our latest "Genealogy at a Glance" guide. Like the other publications in the series, Genealogy at a Glance: Georgia Genealogy Research is a four-page laminated folder that gives you all the useful information you'll need to begin and proceed successfully with your research. Ports begins with a discussion of Georgia's settlement background, beginning in 1732 when King George II granted a charter for the new colony--named in his honor--to James Oglethorpe and twenty other proprietors. County formation began in 1777 with the creation of Burke, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Richmond, and Wilkes counties, and ended in 1924 with the creation of Peach County. Many of the records most useful to genealogists are located at the county level. Therefore a general rule of thumb, Ports states, is to begin your research at the Georgia Archives, which houses original and microfilm copies of most county records, and he details the most critical of these records--marriage and divorce, birth and death, probate, and land lottery records. Ports also gives an overview of two significant supplementary sources--land grant records and tax records--and identifies the major repositories and online resources with useful information for your Georgia family research. Along the way you'll find research tips and references to key publications, making Genealogy at a Glance: Georgia Genealogy Research the most helpful four pages you'll ever read on Georgia genealogy.

Grieving the Loss of Religion
by Rafael Chodos Is it really possible to believe in God today? Can faith really be reconciled with reason and science? Can we read the Bible today as a sacred text? And what does the future hold for the sacred text religions - Judaism, Christianity, Islam? What is prayer? Is it the same thing as holding conversation with God? And can each of us hold direct conversation with God, or is that privilege limited to the prophets? Can we speak to God when we want to, or must we wait for God to speak to us? Does God require obedience of us, or does He abhor obedience because it necessarily involves an abdication of personal responsibility? Is religion ever really a personal matter, or is it necessarily a group phenomenon, rooted in community? And do we have too much religion in the world today, without real spirituality? This short book offers a coherent, clear-spoken set of answers to these persistent questions. The religion of our fathers is no longer viable in our world - but instead of making fun of it, we must grieve the loss of it. And then we must transcend it. As part of the answers he gives us, the author offers us a new view of God - not as anything outside of ourselves, but as the Highest Aspect of the Self. Once this view is understood, all the old questions are resolved and each of us can begin to focus on his or her own relationship with God.

Historic German Newspapers Online
By Ernest Thode For genealogical research, German-language newspapers are at least as useful as their English language counterparts. Astonishingly, there are now approximately 2,000 historic German-language newspapers online at numerous public, private, and commercial websites. The combined newspapers (fifty years and older) comprise billions of pages and refer to millions of individuals. Since most of these digitized papers are fully searchable, this guide to the newspapers, indicating newspaper title, place of publication, date range, and website, is a key to a mother lode of information found in German-language papers and is a revolutionary new tool for German genealogy research. Most of the papers cited are from Germany and the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, though there are papers cited here from as far afield as China and Oklahoma. Citations range from large papers to small, from dailies to weeklies, national papers to local papers, even trade papers, government papers, and occupational papers for saddlers, railroad men, gardeners, bookbinders, and tailors. A single site hosted by the Austrian National Library, for example, has digitized millions of pages in hundreds of titles from Austro-Hungary, with the years 1700-1875 now almost fully digitized, as are World War I newspapers from 1914-1918. Hundreds of other websites are hosted by libraries, universities, museums, and institutions, many with English language interfaces. The genealogical information you can find in these newspapers is almost limitless. It includes notices of births, marriages, and deaths from civil registrations, baptisms and wedding announcements from churches, intentions to emigrate, trade news, lists of pupils, appointments to office, promotions, transfers, retirements, deaths, estate sales, lists of hotel guests, and a multitude of everyday notices. To find this information all you have to do is look for your place of interest in the "Places"� section to see what papers are online for your area of interest; then in the "Titles"� section find a general description of the paper's coverage and a citation to the website. You'll be amazed at the range of information available to you online in German-language newspapers.

Historically Black College Leadership & Social Transformation: How Past Practices Inform the Present and Future
Edited by: Vickie L. Suggs, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Historically Black College Leadership & Social Transformation Little research has been conducted to identify aspects of effective social transformation leadership in American college and university leadership. The authors of this book argue that while much less has been done at predominantly White institutions to practically apply the processes of social transformation as a leadership model, HBCUs have historically relied upon strategies of social transformation as they sought to build and sustain the distinct mission of their institutions that enhance college access, inclusion, and choice. This publication is intended to serve as a departure from the examination of the typology of transformation leadership in the private sector and, instead, view this leadership model through the lens of higher education. The authors' intent is to focus on institutional leadership at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and provide a deeper understanding of the Social Change Model and how it can be successfully situated as a conduit for realizing and sustaining the mission of Black colleges from perspectives of the past, present, and future.

History for Genealogists, Using Chronological Time Lines to Find and Understand Your Ancestors
Revised Edition, with 2016 Addendum Incorporating Editorial Corrections to the 2009 Edition, by Denise Larson By Judy Jacobson History for Genealogists is a rarity: It's one of the very few history books in print that is written for genealogists. Here's what we mean: Let's say you have lost track of your 1880 ancestor in Iowa. Have you considered that he might have moved there during the Economic Panic of 1873? Or maybe your forebears were living in Texas in the 1840s. Did you know that they might have come from Kentucky as part of the "Peters Colony"? Are you aware that you can learn a great deal about your ancestors if they belonged to a labor or fraternal organization like the Amalgamated Clothing Workers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, or the Catholic Family Life Insurance Society? In other words, knowing a little history can go a long way in helping you find elusive ancestors. As author Judy Jacobson puts it, "Genealogy lays the foundation to understand a person or family using tangible evidence. Yet history also lays the foundation to understand why individuals and societies behave the way they do. It provides the building materials needed to understand the human condition and provide an identity, be it for an individual or a group or an institution." History for Genealogists answers fundamental questions about our forebears. For example, if you are trying to learn when your ancestors left one place for another, it would be helpful to ask the question, "Why did they leave?" Did it have to do with a military conflict, social injustice, religion, disease, economic hardship, a natural disaster? No matter what the explanation, Mrs. Jacobson has a historical time line that could lead to the explanation. For example, your ancestor's departure may have coincided with the outbreak of the Crimean War, a virulent epidemic, an earthquake, or a religious war. Other chapters pose answers to other crucial questions, such as "How did they go?" and "What route did they take?" For these conundrums Mrs. Jacobson uses time lines to lay out the history of the transportation revolutions in America (roads, rails, canals, and air travel), as well as the history of the great western trails our ancestors followed in crossing the country. Mrs. Jacobson dissects the past into scores of time lines. There is a time line of the Industrial Revolution, American immigration, and the Labor Movement. Researchers can also make use of a time line for the history of each of the 50 states, and, in brief, for the rest of North America, Europe, and more. The 2016 edition of History for Genealogists has been completely revised and edited, and it contains two entirely new chapters. Readers of the original 2009 edition will enjoy the new time lines concerning (1) life on the homefront during America's 20th-century wars; and (2) fashion and leisure in America from its beginnings through the middle of the 20th century. The fashion and leisure chapter discusses things like the invention of the jigsaw puzzle, publication of Good Housekeeping magazine, and the modeling of the first bikini. Do you know when the "Spanish Flu" reached America during World War I (killing many of our ancestors), or when the government instituted the first aluminum scrap drive, or commenced rationing during World War II? You can get all the answers in the new "Homefront" chapter. Both new chapters include up-to-date bibliographies that readers can use to expand their research. Now more than ever, History for Genealogists is the one history book all family historians should own when they are searching for fresh clues or hoping to understand what made their ancestors tick.

BY PAM DANZIGER In her new book Home for HENRYs, marketing expert Pam Danziger reveals where home furnishings marketers can find their best and brightest new customer prospects-Young HENRYs (High-Earners-Not-Rich-Yet consumers)-and how to connect with them. HENRYs are a rapidly growing demographic segment. Each year since 2010 over a million households have been added to the HENRYs' ranks. During this time, the number of HENRY households has increased by 23.1 percent, five times faster than the national average, which increased only 3.9 percent in the same five year time period. To target the young HENRYs and their home decorating and furniture needs, the essential question all marketers must ask is what do HENRYs want for their homes? In Home for HENRYs, Danziger reveals three key trends shaping the future of the home furnishings market based upon shifting values in the mindset of the HENRYs, particularly the young HENRYs on the road to affluence. Today people are seriously evaluating their lifestyles, what they need, what they own and most importantly, what they really need to own. It's a mindset focused on doing more with less and many young HENRYs are adopting the "tiny house" mindset, even if they haven't yet moved into tiny houses. It's a focus on quality of life, not quantity of possessions. It means they are making strategic compromises based on value. Danziger explains, "The shifts in consumer psychology call on brands to tell new stories. Young HENRYs reject their parents' and grandparents' ideas of luxury in favor of concepts that are more practical, functional, inclusive, democratic, responsible, and, ultimately, more affordable." In Home for HENRYs, marketers will discover the most powerful new luxury stories that connect with young home-hungry HENRYs. Danziger is an internationally known writer and researcher specializing in the luxury consumer market. With this new book focused on home furnishings, Danziger begins a series of compact books focused on specific market segments.

In Vino Duplicitas
The Rise and Fall of a Wine Forger Extraordinaire By Peter Hellman True crime pairs well with fine wine in the astonishing story of Rudy Kurniawan, perhaps the most notorious—and unlikely—wine forger in history Few gain entry to the privileged world of ultrafine wines, where billionaires flock to exclusive auction houses to vie for the scarce surviving bottles from truly legendary years. But Rudy Kurniawan, an unknown twentysomething from Indonesia, was blessed with two gifts that opened doors: a virtuoso palate for wine tasting, and access to a seemingly limitless (if mysterious) supply of the world's most coveted wines. After bursting onto the scene in 2002, Kurniawan quickly became the leading purveyor of rare wines to the American elite. But in April 2008, his lots of Domaine Ponsot Clos Saint-Denis red burgundy—dating as far back as 1945—were abruptly pulled from auction. The problem? The winemaker was certain that this particular burgundy was first produced only in 1982. Journalist Peter Hellman was there, and he would closely investigate as a singular cast of characters—including a Kansas-born billionaire and self-proclaimed "hoarder," a dignified Burgundian winemaker, a wine-loving young prosecutor, and a crusty FBI agent who prepared for the case by reading French Wine for Dummies—worked to unravel the biggest con in wine history. Whether driven by the love of wine or of justice, all were asking the same question: Was the mild-mannered Kurniawan himself a dupe? Or had one young man—with little experience and few connections—ensnared the world's top winemakers, sellers, and drinkers in a web of deceit?

A Reader Edited by George H. Smith and Marilyn Moore Individualism is one of the most criticized and least understood ideas in social and political thought. Is Individualism the ability to act independently amidst a web of social forces? A vital element of personal liberty and a shield against conformity? Does it lead to or away from unifying individuals with communities? Individualism: A Reader provides a wealth of illuminating essays from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. In 26 selections from 25 writers, individualism is explained and defended, often from unusual perspectives. This anthology includes not only selections from well-known writers, but also many lesser-known pieces-reprinted here for the first time-by philosophers, social theorists, and economists who have been overlooked in standard accounts of individualism. Both richly historical and sharply contemporary, Individualism: A Reader provides a multitude of perspectives and insights on personal liberty and the history of freedom.

International Vital Records Handbook, 7th Edition
By Thomas Jay Kemp This is the 7th edition of the "International Vital Records Handbook", a resource that is even more valuable today than it was when it was first published. Not only does it give persons needing certification of their own important life events the tools needed to obtain these certificates, it also gives genealogists and historians the location--both online and on-site--of vital records databases and indexes, as well as other resources that could help further their research. At one time or another everyone needs copies of birth, marriage, civil union, divorce, death, or pre-adoption certificates for driver's licenses, passports, jobs, Social Security, family history research, school enrollment, proof of citizenship, or simple proof of identity. But the fact is that the requirements and fees needed to obtain copies of vital records vary from state to state and from country to country, often requiring tedious research and wading through confusing websites of large agencies before the appropriate forms can be obtained and the correct procedures followed. The "International Vital Records Handbook" will put an end to all that, as it offers complete, up-to-date information on where and how to request vital records. It also includes copies of the application forms, where available, thus simplifying and speeding up the process by which vital records are obtained, regardless of the number or type of application forms required. This edition contains • the latest application forms and ordering information for each of the fifty states and, where available, for the other countries of the world; • details about records that were created prior to statewide vital records registration; • information on which records are restricted and for how long, and whether "informational" or uncertified copies of records are available to genealogy researchers; • locations of vital records collections, online databases, and institutions of interest to genealogy researchers; • adoption search contact information and, where available, pre-adoption birth record and adoption search applications; • key addresses of repositories or embassies that might help you obtain copies of vital records in countries where neither a centralized vital records registration system nor a vital records application form is available. Locating vital records and navigating your way through the various privacy laws and storage facilities can be difficult. The International Vital Records Handbook will make the process immeasurably easier.

Jamestown People to 1800 Landowners, Public Officials, Minorities, and Native Leaders
By Martha W. McCartney In this volume Martha W. McCartney gives us a detailed look at the people associated with Jamestown from its founding in 1607 to 1800. Based on government records and private archives, it provides historical biographies of several distinct groups of people: Jamestown Island landowners, public officials such as council members and burgesses, Native-American leaders, and African Americans associated with Jamestown. It also covers more than a thousand people who did not own land on Jamestown Island but whose activities brought them to Virginia's capital city, including individuals who appeared before the General Court, Quakers who were jailed on account of their religious beliefs, Indians seeking justice on various matters, and participants in the popular uprising known as Bacon's Rebellion. Using an array of fascinating but little known sources, McCartney has carved out authoritative biographies and sketches of everyone in the public record associated with Virginia's capital, from landowners to slaves; she has also enriched her text with a careful study of privately held papers, lending texture to the historical record while filling in little known details about this very distinctive population.

John Brown Photo Chronology; supplement September 2016
Jean Libby Author/Curator Supplement issued separately The time period of the fourteen examined photo portraits is ca. 1847 to 1858, corresponding to the rapid development of photography from single-Image daguerreotypes to replicated prints from negatives. Since publishing the John Brown Photo Chronology exhibition and catalog in 2009, a previously unknown portrait copy daguerreotype has emerged. John Brown the abolitionist was always in a hurry. He and his supporters seized on the photo technology as eagerly as they adopted new weapons and utilized the growing transportation linking Eastern New England and Central New York with the Western Reserve, Chicago, and Detroit. The Underground Railroad for freedom-seekers was part of this growth. 'MY MAIN IDEA ABOUT JOHN BROWN WAS THAT HE WAS A MAN WHO FOUGHT FOR THE FREEDOM OF BLACK PEOPLE AND THAT HE WAS AN ABOLITIONIST. SEEING THE PICTURES OF JOHN BROWN GIVES ME A BROADER VISION OF WHAT JOHN BROWN MIGHT BE LIKE' Nia Nicholson, student, Oakland California.

Locating Your Roots: Discover Your Ancestors Using Land Records
By Margaret Law Hatcher Land records--grants, deeds, mortgages, surveys, and more--are among the most valuable resources for genealogists to prove relationships and to point to new relationships.

This invaluable guide will help you understand the various types of land records and give you the information you need to locate these records-and in the process, it may well open up new avenues of research for you.

Most Wanted Particle
The Inside Story of the Hunt for the Higgs, the Heart of the Future of Physics By Jon Butterworth Foreword by Lisa Randall Now in paperback: the "vivid account of what the process of discovery was really like for an insider."-Peter Higgs Particle physics as we know it depends on the Higgs boson: It's the missing link between the birth of our universe-as a sea of tiny, massless particles-and the tangible world we live in today. But for more than 50 years, scientists wondered: Does it exist? Physicist Jon Butterworth was at the frontlines of the hunt for the Higgs at CERN's Large Hadron Collider-perhaps the most ambitious experiment in history. In Most Wanted Particle, he gives us the first inside account of that uncertain time, when an entire field hinged on a single particle, and life at the cutting edge of science meant media scrutiny, late-night pub debates, dispiriting false starts in the face of intense pressure, and countless hours at the collider itself. As Butterworth explains, our first glimpse of the elusive Higgs brings us a giant step closer to understanding the universe-and points the way to an entirely new kind of physics.

My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me
A Black Woman Discovers Her Family's Nazi Past By Jennifer Teege Nikola Sellmair Translated by Carolin Sommer Now in paperback: The New York Times bestselling memoir hailed as "unforgettable" (Publishers Weekly) and "a stunning memoir of cultural trauma and personal identity" (Booklist). At age 38, Jennifer Teege happened to pluck a library book from the shelf-and discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant depicted in Schindler's List. Reviled as the "butcher of Plaszow," Goeth was executed in 1946. The more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became: If her grandfather had met her-a black woman-he would have killed her. Teege's discovery sends her into a severe depression-and fills her with questions: Why did her birth mother withhold this chilling secret? How could her grandmother have loved a mass murderer? Can evil be inherited? Teege's story is cowritten by Nikola Sellmair, who also adds historical context and insight from Teege's family and friends, in an interwoven narrative. Ultimately, Teege's search for the truth leads her, step by step, to the possibility of her own liberation.

My Main Mother

Without a father. With a mother who is beautiful, promiscuous, avidly ambitious. In a small town in Maine. In the human jungle of New York. Growing up defiant and scared, happy and torn up.

New Clinical Genetics, third Edition
By Andrew Read; Dian Donnai Instructors' comments on new, 3rd edition: "I LOVED the book. I've never seen anything like it, and I've reviewed a lot of genetics texts. The way that cases are presented throughout is extremely novel." "I am greatly pleased with the revisions. In my opinion, there is an increased clarity in the text (which will serve students well), and many welcomed updates based on current literature. Good job!" "I LIKE IT A LOT!!" "The book looks good and we will certainly be recommending it for our medical genetics course this autumn." "This is a fantastic book that I enjoy so much teaching from." "I have been reviewing the book. I think it is a great teaching tool since you can follow a case from beginning to end." "I have used this book every year since the first edition was published and it is a perfect fit for my human genetics course. I will definitely continue to use it." "It's great. I will recommend the book as a main text for the medical student class." In the few years since the previous edition technical progress, especially the widespread use of whole-genome technologies, has brought many advances in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of genetic disease. As a result, most chapters have been substantially rewritten and updated to reflect this. The unique structure and format remains the same, but significant new material has been added to cover: * the widespread use of next-generation sequencing as a routine diagnostic tool * the checking of a patient's whole exome for the cause of their problem * noninvasive prenatal diagnosis by next-generation sequencing of free feta DNA in the maternal circulation * a new integrated treatment of epigenetics * mosaicism, 'RASopathies' and disorders of the spliceosome are described in new Disease boxes * dysmorphology in more detail New Clinical Genetics continues to offer the most innovative case-based approach to modern genetics. It is used worldwide as a textbook for medical students, but also as an essential guide to the field for genetic counselors, physician assistants, and clinical and nurse geneticists.

On the High Wire: Education Professors Walk Between Work and Parenting
By: George Theoharis, Syracuse University Sharon Dotger, Syracuse University The purpose of the work/life balance series is to highlight particular challenges that higher education faculty face as they participate in the demands of the academy and try to prevent those demands from invading their personal lives. On The High Wire looks at a specific subset of university faculty, education faculty with school-aged children, and the specific professional/personal balance these faculty need to find. The title On the High Wire suggests the precarious nature of the "walk" for education faculty who are parents of school-aged children. We know that our identities are central to how we experience the world and how the world reacts to us. This reality is clearly visible in this book. These multiple identities and roles come into conflict at multiple points and in different ways. This book explores these identities and roles through autoethnographic accounts written by varied education faculty in order to make these tensions visible for the field to address.

Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace
By: David J. Smith, George Mason University This book is a guide for college students exploring career options who are interested in working to promote peacebuilding and the resolution of conflict. High school students, particularly those starting to consider college and careers, can also benefit from this book. A major feature of the book is 30 stories from young professionals, most recently graduated from college, who are working in the field. These profiles provide readers with insight as to strategies they might use to advance their peacebuilding careers. The book speaks directly to the Millennial generation, recognizing that launching a career is a major focus, and that careers in the peace field have not always been easy to identify. As such, the book takes the approach that most any career can be a peacebuilding career provided one is willing to apply creativity and passion to their work.

Petroglyphs of Western Colorado and the Northern Ute Indian Reservation as Interpreted by Clifford Duncan
Transactions 105, Part 5 Carol Patterson People must be educated about the rock art. That's how it will be protected. -Clifford Duncan Clifford Duncan, a Northern Ute elder, believed in educating the public to know and understand the meaning of Ute petroglyphs. By doing this, he believed it would help to preserve and protect them. Over the course of eight years, Clifford and the author visited and revisited all of these sites, discussing what they might represent. Clifford's father was an Uncompahgre Ute and wanted Clifford to know the traditional homelands of the Uncompahgres in western Colorado. Clifford made special trips all through the Uncompahgre Plateau (by car, on foot, and on horseback), seeking out any Ute petroglyphs and cultural sites. Later in his life, he and the author visited many of the petroglyphs on the Uintah-Ouray Reservation, along Hill Creek and Willow Creek. These petroglyphs were authored by the Uncompahgre and White River Utes. The interpretations of the petroglyphs of western Colorado and the Uintah-Ouray Reservation are supplemented with cultural and political history to provide a background context to Clifford's interpretations. In addition, ethnographic information from other scholars provides readers with a deep appreciation as to what makes Ute petroglyphs so unique and fascinating.

By Dave Knox Predicting The Turn is your rule book for the new game of high-stakes business. The Fortune 500 was first published in 1955, and since that time, 89 percent of the list has completely turned over. When the S&P 500 was launched in 1958, the average company remained in the index for roughly 61 years. Today, an S&P 500 company is being replaced about once every two weeks. It is no wonder that disruption and innovation are at the top of every executive agenda for the world's largest companies. These leaders are trying to determine how to compete with a new breed of competitors that are playing the game by entirely different set of rules. In Predicting The Turn, Dave Knox discusses the new high-stakes game of business between disruptive startups and Blue Chip companies, teaching readers how to foresee the future of their industry. As a brand marketer, venture investor, and startup advisor, Knox provides a one-of-a-kind worldview into the changing relationship between startups and Fortune 500 companies. His insight-filled book Predicting The Turn teaches the world's largest companies how to foresee the future of their industries. The lessons taught include: Your competitors of today are not your competitors of tomorrow: One of the biggest mistakes that big companies make is underestimating their Total Available Market and where their future competitors will emerge from. Innovation-driven acquisition can be the new R&D: Every industry is being transformed by technology, Acquisitions can infuse Digital DNA into a company's core business - both in terms of business models, as well as human talent. Incumbents have an opportunity to "disrupt the disruptors": By taking inspiration from a startup or innovative competitor, big companies can use their scale, brand, and financial resources to launch a new effort.

A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything By Lydia Kang Nate Pedersen What won't we try in our quest for perfect health, beauty, and the fountain of youth? Well, just imagine a time when doctors prescribed morphine for crying infants. When liquefied gold was touted as immortality in a glass. And when strychnine—yes, that strychnine, the one used in rat poison—was dosed like Viagra. Looking back with fascination, horror, and not a little dash of dark, knowing humor, Quackery recounts the lively, at times unbelievable, history of medical misfires and malpractices. Ranging from the merely weird to the outright dangerous, here are dozens of outlandish, morbidly hilarious "treatments"—conceived by doctors and scientists, by spiritualists and snake oil salesmen (yes, they literally tried to sell snake oil)—that were predicated on a range of cluelessness, trial and error, and straight-up scams. With vintage illustrations, photographs, and advertisements throughout, Quackery seamlessly combines macabre humor with science and storytelling to reveal an important and disturbing side of the ever-evolving field of medicine.

Rheumatology: A clinical handbook
By Ahmad Al-Sukaini, Mohsin Azam and Ash Samanta Rheumatology: A clinical handbook is an essential resource for medical students who need an introduction, understanding and overview of the subject. Most competing texts either burden medical students with information they do not require, or cover rheumatology alongside orthopaedics and as a result compromise fundamentals of rheumatology. This book is different - it provides all the information students need during their rheumatology placement and signposts them to where they can find further information. A definition and brief pathophysiology for each condition is provided, which is linked to the respective clinical features. The book covers the core elements of diagnosis and treatment based on the latest national guidelines to swiftly bring students and junior doctors in training up-to-date. Self-assessment questions and an OSCE chapter provide a way of checking that users have understood and grasped the core material, as well as enabling students to be well equipped for their written and OSCE examinations. Written by two medical students and an experienced consultant rheumatologist, the book combines a reader-friendly writing style with coverage of the material through clinical experience of a professional in the field. Printed in full colour throughout, with an attractive design, a clear and concise writing style as well as a range of pedagogical features including an array of mnemonics, pictures and diagrams, Rheumatology: A clinical handbook is exactly the sort of book medical students and newly qualified doctors would benefit from. Further material, in the form of 30 Single Best Answer (SBA) and 50 Extended Matching Questions (EMQs) are available online to purchasers of the book, together with answers.

Savage Country
A Novel By Robert Olmstead "Robert Olmstead gets better with every book. If you know all of his previous books, you know how startling this fact is, and how startlingly good this writer is." --Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter In September 1873, Elizabeth Coughlin, a widow bankrupted by her husband's folly and death, embarks on a buffalo hunt with her estranged and mysterious brother-in-law, Michael. With no money, no family, no job or security, she hopes to salvage something of her former life and the lives of the hired men and their families who depend on her. The buffalo hunt that her husband had planned, she now realizes, was his last hope for saving their land. Elizabeth and Michael plunge south across the aptly named Deadline demarcating Indian Territory from their home state, Kansas. Nothing could have prepared them for the dangers: rattlesnakes, rabies, wildfire, lightning strikes, blue northers, flash floods, threats to life in so many ways. They're on borrowed time: the Comanche are in winter quarters, and the cruel work of slaughtering the buffalo is unraveling their souls. They must get back alive. This is a gripping narrative of that infamous hunt, which drove the buffalo population to near extinction--the story of a moment in our history in which mass destruction of an animal population was seen as the only route to economic solvency. But it's also the intimate story of how that hunt changed Michael and Elizabeth forever.

Specialization and Trade
A Re-introduction to Economics By Arnold Kling Available exclusively as an ebook. Since the end of the second World War, economics professors and classroom textbooks have been telling us that the economy is one big machine that can be effectively regulated by economic experts and tuned by government agencies like the Federal Reserve Board. It turns out they were wrong. Their equations do not hold up. Their policies have not produced the promised results. Their interpretations of economic events -- as reported by the media -- are often of-the-mark, and unconvincing. A key alternative to the one big machine mindset is to recognize how the economy is instead an evolutionary system, with constantly-changing patterns of specialization and trade. This book introduces you to this powerful approach for understanding economic performance. By putting specialization at the center of economic analysis, Arnold Kling provides you with new ways to think about issues like sustainability, financial instability, job creation, and inflation. In short, he removes stiff, narrow perspectives and instead provides a full, multi-dimensional perspective on a continually evolving system. Also available in print and ebook formats at Amazon. The ebook is also available for iPad and Nook.

The Accidental Law Librarian
By Anthony Aycock "A brilliant summary of everything a librarian should know before entering the law library profession. ... I wish this book had been around when I accidentally entered the legal library world myself." —Terry Ballard, librarian and author, Google This! Putting Google and Other Social Media Sites to Work for Your Library Where can I find the caseSimpson v. Satterfield?What are the laws in Nevada on gun ownership? Can you help me apply for a business license? How do I copyright my name? Questions like these make a new law librarian's head spin. The truth is,alllibrarians are apt to get legal questions, and most struggle to respond. Collection development, too, is tricky if you seldom work with legal publishers. As the law touches more and more of our daily lives while lawyers price their services out of the average person's range, the public increasingly turns to libraries for answers. Where can librarians turn? Okay, that one's easy—to Anthony Aycock'sThe Accidental Law Librarian. "Anthony Aycock has done for law librarianship what James Herriot did for veterinary practice. He brings alive the challenges of legal reference work, including the sometimes painful and often hilarious questions that arise. Whether you work in a law library or just appreciate the complexities of legal research, this book is a great read."

The Cornerstone of Liberty 2nd Edition
By Timothy Sandefur Ten years after the Supreme Court's infamous eminent domain decision, Kelo v. New London, Timothy and Christina Sandefur's Cornerstone of Liberty surveys the landscape of property rights in the United States, from redevelopment projects that seize people's homes and businesses for the benefit of politically-connected developers, to environmental regulations that forbid people from building homes on land they supposedly own, to asset-forfeiture laws that let the police seize property involved in a crime even if the owner is not accused of any wrongdoing. This second edition has been almost completely rewritten, incorporating details learned only after Kelo was decided, as well as an analysis of the post-Kelo reform efforts, and more recent Supreme Court decisions such as the Sackett and Koontz cases. The Sandefurs combine real-life stories with the philosophical and legal background of private property rights to show why the right to ownership is one of the most essential of human rights. The Sandefurs also provide practical recommendations for better protecting property owners.

The Grandparent Economy
How Baby Boomers Are Bridging the Generation Gap By Lori K. Bitter Older consumers are different. It really is that simple. Consumer behavior is much more difficult to predict as consumers age. This confounds younger brand managers and CMOs who move to brands with older consumer markets. They bring all of their marketing genius from their last job and are gob smacked when those strategies for younger consumers do not work. With over 100 million older consumers searching for products and services that meet the needs of their increasingly complex lives, engaging marketing and advertising campaigns are vital. Consider that: * 43% of grandparents purchase clothing for grandchildren, spending an average of almost $1,000 annually. * With $400 billion in spending on goods and services, people 55+ are outspending younger consumers two to one online. * Tablet penetration has grown from 35% to 41% and grandparents now account for 25% of mobile transactions. Boomer grandparents provide care for older adults and young children, equating to billions of dollars in savings as elders age in place and adult children rely on them for all types of care. Boomer grandparents also fund education, they pay for insurance and they may very well be sacrificing their own retirement to do so. These grandparents are working longer than any previous generation of older adults as they help to fund the lives of at least three generations. This easy-to-read book will shatter many of perceptions that, in the past, have diverted marketers' attention from one of the biggest marketing opportunities ever. Learn what really matters in the lives of today's grandparents from the generation raised on sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

The Human Freedom Index
A Global Measurement of Personal, Civil, and Economic Freedom By Ian Vasquez and Tanja Porcnik The Human Freedom Index (HFI) is the most comprehensive measure of freedom ever created for a large number of countries around the globe. It captures the degree to which people are free to enjoy major liberties such as freedom of speech, religion, and association and assembly, as well as measures freedom of movement, women's freedoms, crime and violence, and legal discrimination against same-sex relationships. The authors of the study-Ian Vasquez, Director of the Cato Institute's Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, and Tanja Porcnik, a Cato Institute adjunct scholar and President of the Visio Institute based in Slovenia-also measure the rule of law, which they consider "an essential condition of freedom that protects the individual from coercion." Vasquez says that "freedom is inherently valuable and plays a central role in human progress, so it is worth measuring carefully. Over time, the Human Freedom Index could track not only specific gains and losses of freedom but also explore the complex ways in which freedom influences, and can be influenced by, political regimes, economic development, and the whole range of indicators of human well-being." The index is co-published by the Cato Institute, the Fraser Institute in Canada, and the Liberales Institut at the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom in Germany.

The Statesman and the Storyteller: John Hay, Mark Twain, and the Rise of American Imperialism
By Mark Zwonitzer In a dual biography covering the last ten years of the lives of friends and contemporaries, writer Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain) and statesman John Hay (who served as secretary of state under presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt), The Statesman and the Storyteller not only provides an intimate look into the daily lives of these men but also creates an elucidating portrait of the United States on the verge of emerging as a world power. And just as the narrative details the wisdom, and the occasional missteps, of two great men during a tumultuous time, it also penetrates the seat of power in Washington as the nation strove to make itself known internationally--and in the process committed acts antithetical to America's professed ideals and promises. The country's most significant move in this time was to go to war with Spain and to eventually wrest control of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. In what has to be viewed as one of the most shameful periods in American political history, Filipinos who believed they had been promised independence were instead told they were incapable of self-government and then violently subdued in a war that featured torture and execution of native soldiers and civilians. The United States also used its growing military and political might to grab the entirety of the Hawaiian Islands and a large section of Panama. As secretary of state during this time, Hay, though a charitable man, was nonetheless complicit in these misdeeds. Clemens, a staunch critic of his country's imperialistic actions, was forced by his own financial and family needs to temper his remarks. Nearing the end of their long and remarkable lives, both men found themselves struggling to maintain their personal integrity while remaining celebrated and esteemed public figures. Written with a keen eye--Mark Zwonitzer is also an award-winning documentary filmmaker--and informed by the author's deep understanding of the patterns of history, The Statesman and the Storyteller has the compelling pace of a novel, the epic sweep of historical writing at its best, and, in capturing the essence of the lives of Hay and Twain, the humanity and nuance of masterful biography

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Breast Cancer Take Charge of Your Recovery and Remission
By Janet Maker, Ph.D. Breast cancer is expected to rise by 50% by 2030--National Cancer Institute. When Dr. Janet Maker was diagnosed in 2011, she, like most people, knew almost nothing about breast cancer. What she did know is that she didn't feel safe simply following her doctors' advice. She needed to understand for herself all her treatment options, the statistical outcomes for each option, and all the potential side effects, so she could make informed decisions. Because of her academic background and expertise as a researcher, she discovered a great deal about the disease and its treatments that few lay people are aware of. The Thinking Woman's Guide to Breast Cancer is the story of her journey and the things she learned along the way. This information helped her to make informed decisions about her treatment, and it also helped her to make the lifestyle changes that she hopes will keep her in remission. This is the book she wished she had before, during, and after her treatment. Topics that will help readers take charge of their recovery include how to find the best doctors and hospitals; how to build a support system; and pros and cons of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and hormones. Topics that will help readers stay in remission include how to make the body less receptive to cancer, including changes in diet, exercise, supplements, and stress reduction. Readers may not make the same decisions that Dr. Maker did, but the information in the book will empower them to make the decisions they consider best for themselves and their loved ones. ORDERING INFORMATION: Available through Distributors: Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Brodart and All Wholesalers, or directly from the following websites; and

The Three Languages of Politics
Talking Across the Political Divides By Arnold Kling When it was first released in 2013, Arnold Kling's The Three Languages of Politics was a prescient exploration of political communication, detailing the "three tribal coalitions" that make up America's political landscape. Progressives, conservatives, and libertarians, he argued, are "like tribes speaking different languages. As a result, political discussions do not lead to agreement. Instead, most political commentary serves to increase polarization." Now available as a newly revised and expanded edition, Kling's book could not be any more timely, as Americans-whether as media pundits or conversing at a party-talk past one another with even greater volume, heat, and disinterest in contrary opinions. The Three Languages of Politics is an accessible, precise, and insightful guide to how to lower the barriers coarsening our politics. This is not a book about one ideology over another. Instead, it is a book about how we communicate issues and our ideologies, and how language intended to persuade instead divides. Kling offers a way to see through our rhetorical blinders so that we can incorporate new perspectives, nuances, and thinking into the important issues we must together share and resolve. The Three Languages of Politics is also available in print and ebook formats at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The ebook is also available through iBooks.

The Welfare of Nations
By James Bartholomew What damage is being done by failing welfare states? What lessons can be learned from the best welfare states? And—is it too late to stop welfare states from permanently diminishing the lives and liberties of people around the world?

Theory and Practice of Adult and Higher Education
Edited by: Victor C.X. Wang, Florida Atlantic University A volume on Theory and Practice of Adult and Higher Education or Foundations of Adult and Higher Education will appeal to both our graduate students and faculty as so many of them have been taking courses in both program areas and have been concerned with their defined areas of expertise. Although theories and practices in Adult Education, and in Higher Education are being used interchangeably, there is a lack of scholarly work that connects existing theories and practices across the two fields. The proposed ground-breaking volume will cover topics/theories/practices in both fields of Adult Education and of Higher Education, and in doing so will bring to the fore the connections that make these two fields truly inseparable. The proposed volume will therefore generate new knowledge to share among faculty, graduate students and other researchers who practice not only in Adult Education, but also in Higher Education.

Transformational Journeys: An Ethnologist's Memoir
Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Volume 106, Part 5 Victoria R. Bricker This is the professional memoir of an ethnologist, who studies the cultures and languages of ethnic groups, in the present and in the past. Victoria Bricker's journeys—from Hong Kong to Shanghai during World War II, to the United States after the war, to Germany, Harvard, southeastern Mexico, and eventually to New Orleans—influenced her choice of ethnology as a career and shaped that career over 50 years. Ethnology served as the stepping stone for intellectual forays into other related fields, such as linguistics, ethnohistory, epigraphy, and astronomy, all focused on the Maya people of southern Mexico and Central America. The focus of the book is Mayan, but the story is universal. Ebook also available

Virtual Teams in Higher Education: A Handbook for Students and Teachers
By: Madelyn Flammia, University of Central Florida Yvonne Cleary, University of Limerick Darina M. Slattery, University of Limerick In recent years, virtual teams have become a feature of most corporate workplaces, yet few academic programs prepare students to work in virtual teams, and few textbooks support the development of key skills for virtual teamwork. The primary purpose of this book is to enable higher education students to participate in virtual teams with students from other institutions, who potentially operate in different countries, time zones, and/or cultures. The book guides students through the process of working in virtual team projects for their classes, and helps them to engage with the learning experiences, and to respond to potential challenges. The book is directed towards students within any of the following disciplines: Business; Information Technology; Communication Studies; and Engineering. One section of the book also guides teachers through the process of organizing virtual team projects, and explores the teacher/teacher collaboration that is an inevitable consequence of organizing inter-institutional student virtual team projects. It provides advice for teachers on how to manage administrative challenges such as conflicting institutional schedules and grading mechanisms. In addition, it discusses research themes and data gathering and analysis techniques for teachers who wish to publish findings about the virtual team process and outcomes. As well as students and teachers, the book is also useful for researchers exploring any of the following themes: Technology use in virtual teams; Communication strategies and international communication in virtual teams; Communities of learning, e-learning, and virtual teams; Challenges of virtual teamwork; Planning a virtual team collaboration project; and Gathering and analyzing data about virtual collaboration.

We Love You, Charlie Freeman
A Novel By Kaitlyn Greenidge "A terrifically auspicious debut." -Janet Maslin, The New York Times "Smart, timely and powerful . . . A rich examination of America's treatment of race, and the ways we attempt to discuss and confront it today." -The Huffington Post The Freeman family--Charles, Laurel, and their daughters, teenage Charlotte and nine-year-old Callie--have been invited to the Toneybee Institute to participate in a research experiment. They will live in an apartment on campus with Charlie, a young chimp abandoned by his mother. The Freemans were selected because they know sign language; they are supposed to teach it to Charlie and welcome him as a member of their family. But when Charlotte discovers the truth about the institute's history of questionable studies, the secrets of the past invade the present in devious ways. The power of this shattering novel resides in Greenidge's undeniable storytelling talents. What appears to be a story of mothers and daughters, of sisterhood put to the test, of adolescent love and grown-up misconduct, and of history's long reach, becomes a provocative and compelling exploration of America's failure to find a language to talk about race. "A magnificently textured, vital, visceral feat of storytelling . . . [by] a sharp, poignant, extraordinary new voice of American literature." -Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife

Will You Be Mine?
By Barry Beckham Barry Beckham's first novel in 20 years takes on an old theme with a new approach. Will You Be Mine? is the distinguished novelist's stab at presenting a different kind of love story. "I wanted a black male narrator who is tender and passionate," says Beckham. "At the same time," he adds, "my main character encounters the usual absurdities that come with being a black male in twentieth century America." His narrator is a 50-year-old African-American whose third wife, Chinita-twenty years younger- has just died after a painful bout with "the disease that keeps growing." Caught in Washington, DC traffic and listening to talk radio as he drives toward his beach house, the narrator has the perfect audience-a sympathetic Teddy bear. His rumination is really a description of his long search for his soul mate, his earth angel. It has taken more than half of his life to find her. His search takes on surreal, comic and tragic tones as he negotiates his way through a society that seems obsessed with stifling and subjugating his manhood. For the African-American male in the last half of the twentieth century, says Beckham, it is a painfully difficult challenge trying to foster a loving, tender relationship filled with passion and joy.

Without Indentures: Index to White Slave Children in Colonial Court Records
By Richard Hayes Phillips In this groundbreaking work, Richard Hayes Phillips has collected the names of more than five thousand children kidnapped from Ireland, Scotland, England, and New England, and sold into slavery in Maryland and Virginia, c. 1660-1720. By English law dated 1659, it was lawful for justices of the peace to kidnap children found begging or vagrant and ship them to the plantations as servants without indentures. The younger the child, the longer the sentence, and the colonial county courts were the judges of their ages. These five thousand names, culled from the Court Order Books, some of which have not been examined for centuries, have now been compiled into one genealogical index. In almost every case the entries provide the name of the child, the name of the owner, the date they appeared in court, and the age assigned by the judges, many of whom owned the very children they were sentencing to servitude. For ease of use, the volume contains an index to the ships--and their captains--that imported these kidnapped children, as well as a surname index to guide the researcher to alternate or incorrect spellings as found in the Court Order Books. The Introduction to Mr. Phillips's book describes the history and conditions of white servitude in colonial Maryland and Virginia, along with an annotated list of the sources he consulted. Families who have traced their ancestry back to a name that appears in this index will know for the first time how their progenitor got to Maryland or Virginia. In other cases the kidnapped child will be the sibling in the family chart for whom there is nothing but a birth record. We have long known about indentured servants, who agreed in writing, by indenture, to work without wages for a number of years to pay off the cost of their passage and lodging, after which time they were free. We were never told--until now!--about white slaves, who did not consent and who never contracted in writing.

Woman at 1,000 Degrees
By Hallgrímur Helgason Translated by Brian FitzGibbon "I live here alone in a garage, together with a laptop computer and a hand grenade. It's pretty cozy." And . . . she's off. Eighty-year-old Herra Bjornsson, one of the most original narrators in literary history, takes readers along with her on a dazzling ride of a novel that spans the events and locales of the twentieth century. As she lies alone in that garage in the heart of Reykjavik, waiting to die, Herra reflects--in a voice by turns darkly funny, bawdy, poignant, and always, always smart--on the mishaps, tragedies, and turns of luck that took her from Iceland to Nazi Germany, from the United States to Argentina and back to a post-crash, high-tech, modern Iceland. Born to a prominent political family, Herra's childhood begins in the idyllic islands of western Iceland. But when her father makes the foolish decision to cast his lot with a Hitler on the rise, she soon finds herself abandoned and alone in war-torn Europe, relying on only her wits and occasional good fortune to survive. For Herra is, ultimately, a fierce survivor, a modern woman ahead of her time who is utterly without self-pity despite the horrors she has endured. With death approaching, she remembers the husbands and children she has loved and lost, and tries, for the first time, to control her own fate by defying her family's wishes and setting a date for her cremation--at a toasty temperature of 1,000 degrees. Each chapter of Herra's story is a piece of a haunting puzzle that comes together beautifully in the book's final pages. Originally published in Icelandic and based on a real person whom author Hallgrímur Helgason encountered by chance, Woman at 1,000 Degrees was a bestseller in Germany, France, and Denmark, and has been compared to "John Irving on speed." But it is deeply moving as well, the story of a woman swept up by the forces of history. With echoes of All the Light We Cannot See and The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, as well as European tours de force such as The Tin Drum, Woman at 1,000 Degrees is, ultimately, original, introducing a fresh new voice to American audiences.

Young Jane Young
A Novel By Gabrielle Zevin From the author of the international bestseller The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry comes another novel that will have everyone talking. Aviva Grossman, an ambitious congressional intern in Florida, makes the mistake of having an affair with her boss--and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light, the beloved congressman doesn't take the fall. But Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins: slut-shamed, she becomes a late-night talk show punch line, anathema to politics. She sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. This time, she tries to be smarter about her life and strives to raise her daughter, Ruby, to be strong and confident. But when, at the urging of others, Aviva decides to run for public office herself, that long-ago mistake trails her via the Internet and catches up--an inescapable scarlet A. In the digital age, the past is never, ever, truly past. And it's only a matter of time until Ruby finds out who her mother was and is forced to reconcile that person with the one she knows. Young Jane Young is a smart, funny, and moving novel about what it means to be a woman of any age, and captures not just the mood of our recent highly charged political season, but also the double standards alive and well in every aspect of life for women.
