Across the Layers: Poems Old and New

Product : Across the Layers: Poems Old and New
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Born in Chicago and educated at the University of Illinois and University of Iowa, Goldbarth has taught at various schools, including the University of Texas. Prolific and wide-ranging in content, Goldbarth writes against the grain of much contemporary poetry, which aims to strip language to its barest essentials. His verse, by contrast, is baroque, florid, even---as his critics would have it---cluttered. The effect of his virtuoso verbal performance is to suggest how intensely is the human need for explanation and connection with the vast storehouse of culture within which we live. In his recent works, Goldbarth has pursued his theory that life is a Moebius strip, continually repeating itself, with no discernible beginning or end.

Clint Eastwood and Issues of American Masculinity

Product : Clint Eastwood and Issues of American Masculinity
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In this risk-taking book, a major feminist philosopher engages the work of the actor and director who has progressed from being the stereotypical man''s man to pushing the boundaries of the very genres - the Western, the police thriller, the war or boxing movie - most associated with Americanmasculinity. Cornell''s highly appreciative encounter with the films directed by Clint Eastwood revolve around the questions What is it to be a good man? and What is it to be, not just an ethical person, but specifically an ethical man? Focusing on Eastwood as a director rather than as an actoror cultural icon, she studies Eastwood in relation to major philosophical and ethical themes that have been articulated in her own life''s work. In her fresh and revealing readings of the films, Cornell takes up pressing issues of masculinity as it is caught up in the very definition of ideas of revenge, violence, moral repair, and justice. Eastwood grapples with this involvement of masculinity in and through many of the great symbols ofAmerican life, including cowboys, boxing, police dramas, and ultimately war - perhaps the single greatest symbol of what it means (or is supposed to mean) to be a man. Cornell discusses films from across Eastwood''s career, from his directorial debut with Play Misty for Me to Million Dollar Baby. Cornell''s book is not a traditional book of film criticism or a cinematographic biography. Rather, it is a work of social commentary and ethical philosophy. In a world in which we seem to be losing our grip on shared symbols, along with community itself, Eastwood''s films work with the fragmentedsymbols that remain to us in order to engage masculinity with the most profound moral and ethical issues facing us today.

America's Frontier Heritage

Product : America's Frontier Heritage
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The hypothesis advanced in Frederick Jackson Turner''s famous 1893 essay, The Significance of the Frontier in American History, has been debated by three generations of scholars. The pioneering experience, Turner suggested, accounted for some of the distinctive characteristics of the American people: during three centuries of expansion their attitudes toward democracy, nationalism and individualism were altered, and they developed distinctively American traits, such as wastefulness, inventiveness, mobility, and a dozen more.After opening with a summary of the appearance, acceptance, and subsequent dismissal of the theory, the author carefully defines the frontier and reviews recent evidence on its political, social, and economic characteristics. He discusses the compulsion to migrate and examines other behavioral patterns and traits in his explanation of how and why pioneers moved west. His extensive bibliographic notes constitute a remarkable guide to the literature of many disciplines dealing with the frontier concept.

Dutra's World: Wealth And Family In Nineteenth-century Rio De Janeiro

Product : Dutra's World: Wealth And Family In Nineteenth-century Rio De Janeiro
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The relation of slavery to Brazil''s economic and social history has long fascinated researchers. Zephyr Frank focuses on nineteenth-century Rio de Janeiro, where almost half of the city''s residents labored as slaves of diverse owners in a complex urban setting. Slavery persisted in the Brazilian city, in part, because it was entrenched among upwardly mobile entrepreneurs who hired their slaves out for wages, employed them in family businesses, and bought and sold them for profit. Changes in the institution of slavery and the economy of the city gradually limited access to slaves, constricting avenues of social mobility for slaveholders and transforming the lives of the slaves themselves.Frank uses the experiences of one person, Antonio JosÃ(c) Dutra, as an example of a middling urban slaveholder. Dutra, a former slave himself, owned thirteen slaves whom he employed in his barbering business and musical band. Dutra''s story is part of the larger picture Frank paints of those who owned slaves, how they fit into the social and economic development of Brazil, and what slaves and their owners did as slavery rose and then gradually declined in Rio de Janeiro.Frank traces social mobility, race, class, and slaveholding patterns, basing his analysis on inheritance records. Rich in detail, these records reveal layers of historical meaning regarding the accumulation of wealth, social mobility, family ties, and the social and cultural practices surrounding death.

Dona Tules: Santa Fe's Courtesan and Gambler

Product : Dona Tules: Santa Fe's Courtesan and Gambler
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Social Science
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Gertrudis Barcelo, New Mexico''s celebrated gambler and demimonde of the 1830s and 1840s, was born at the turn of the nineteenth century in the Bavispe valley of east central Sonora, Mexico. Young Gertrudis, who would later achieve fame under the name Tules, discovered how to manipulate men, reading their body language and analyzing their gambling habits.This power, coupled with a strong-willed and enterprising nature, led Dona Tules to her legendary role as a shrewd and notorious gambling queen and astute businesswoman. Her monte dealings and entertainment houses became legendary throughout the southern Rocky Mountain region. Her assistance to U.S. Army officers during the Mexican War brought her additional fame.Dona Tules''s daring behavior attracted the attention and condemnation of many puritanical Anglo travelers along the Santa Fe Trail. Demonized by later historians, Dona Tules has predominately been portrayed as little more than a caricature of an Old West madam and cardsharp, eluding serious historical study until now. Mary Cook sifts through the notoriety to illustrate the significant role Dona Tules played in New Mexico history at a time when the Spanish and Mexican eras were ending and the American era was about to begin.

Wire's Pink Flag

Product : Wire's Pink Flag
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In contrast with many of their punk peers, Wire were enigmatic and cerebral, always keeping a distance from the crowd. Although Pink Flag appeared before the end of 1977, it was already a meta-commentary on the punk scene and was far more revolutionary musically than the rest of the competition. Few punk bands moved beyond pared-down rock ''n'' roll and garage rock, football-terrace sing-alongs or shambolic pub rock and, if we''re honest, only a handful of punk records hold up today as anything other than increasingly quaint period pieces. While the majority of their peers flogged one idea to death and paid only lip service to punk''s Year Zero credo, Wire took a genuinely radical approach, deconstructing song conventions, exploring new possibilities and consistently reinventing their sound. THIS IS A CHORD. THIS IS ANOTHER. THIS IS A THIRD. NOW FORM A BAND, proclaimed the caption to the famous diagram in a UK fanzine in 1976 and countless punk acts embodied that do-it-yourself spirit. Wire, however, showed more interesting ways of doing it once you''d formed that band and they found more compelling uses for those three mythical chords.

The Song of Songs: The Honeybee in the Garden

Product : The Song of Songs: The Honeybee in the Garden
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The Song of Songs has provided generations with some of the most passionate and most lasting love poetry ever recorded. And because of that passion, it has also been a source of lasting controversy and debate. What exactly is the true meaning of these 117 verses—a celebration of romantic love, or an allegory of divine love and redemption? In The Song of Songs: The Honeybee in the Garden, author and artist Debra Band presents a breathtakingly beautiful illuminated work in which these two lines of interpretation are harmonized within a stunning visual context. Her fine calligraphy and striking artwork are like The Song of Songs itself, both literal and allegorical, sensuous and spiritual. This lovingly produced volume contains 65 full-page illuminations and beautifully crafted papercuts. The illuminations draw upon classic rabbinic texts and modern scholarship, creating both visual beauty and a new visual midrash on this beloved poetry. The art is accompanied by the artist’s interpretation of the images, and it includes the Bible text in its original Hebrew, next to both the JPS English translation and the new David Band translation. The preface, by Raymond Scheindlin, eminent scholar of medieval Hebrew literature at The Jewish Theological Seminary, provides the framework for truly understanding Band’s artistic achievement and scholarly contribution. This work, hailed as a masterpiece by art-lovers and scholars across the world, is an art-book collector’s delight, a Bible devotee’s treasure, and a magnificent gift for weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions.

Maimonides, Expanded Edition: Torah and Philosophic Quest

Product : Maimonides, Expanded Edition: Torah and Philosophic Quest
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In his 1976 Maimonides: Torah and Philosophical Quest, David Hartman departs from traditional scholarly views about Maimonides by offering a new way of understanding the great man and his work. This expanded edition contains Hartman’s new postscript. A 12th-century rabbi, scholar, physician, and philosopher, Moses Maimonides is best known for his two great works on Judaism: Mishneh Torah and Guide to the Perplexed. They have often been viewed by scholars as having different audiences and different messages, together reflecting the two sides of the author himself: Maimonides the halakhist, who focused on piety through obedience to Jewish law; and Maimonides the philosopher, who advocated closeness with God through reflection and knowledge of nature. Hartman argues that while many scholars look at one aspect of Maimonides to the exclusion or dismissal of the other, the way to really understand him is to see both adherence to the law and philosophical pursuits as two essential aspects of Judaism. Hartman’s 2009 postscript sheds new light on his argument and indeed on Judaism as Maimonides interpreted it. In it Hartman explains that while Maimonides never envisioned the integration of halakhah with philosophy, he did view them as existing in a symbiotic relationship. While the focus of the Mishneh Torah was halakha and obedience to Jewish law, Guide to the Perplexed spoke to individuals whose love of God grew through their passion, devotion and yearning to understand God’s wisdom and power in nature. Both modes of spiritual orientation lived in the thought of Maimonides.

Description : We all know about King David and King Solomon, but what about the kings Omri and Uzziah? Of the more than fifty monarchs who sat on the throne of the Jews for over 1000 years, most of us can recall only a few. What we do remember about them has been colored by legend and embellishment. In Kings of the Jews, Norman Gelb tells us the real stories of them all. And in doing so, he reveals how a remarkably resilient people survived divisions, discord, and conquest to forge a vibrant identity that has lasted to the present day. Kings of the Jews explores some of the most dramatic periods in Jewish history: those of the united Israelite kingdom under David and Solomon, the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah, the Babylonian exile, and the destruction of the Second Temple and the Roman conquest of Jerusalem. With illustrations, maps, chronologies, and index.

Description : The streets are eerily empty, and everyone in the Jewish community is terrified of Peter the Hermit. His men, the Crusaders, are moving through the town on their way to the Holy Land. They have been known to batter down doors and burn Jewish houses, all in the name of religion. This is not Nazi Germany but Troyes, France, in 1096, as seen through the eyes of funny, feisty, twelve-year-old Elvina. She is the granddaughter of the great rabbi Rashi, and she knows how to read and write—which is very rare for a girl of her time. She draws strength from this, as well as from her guardian angel, to whom she regularly speaks. On a cold Sabbath afternoon while Elvina is alone in the house, three soldiers pound at her door. One of them is wounded. Elvina has only a moment to make a difficult choice that could put her family and the entire community at risk. Can her guardian angel guide her and keep her safe? My Guardian Angel is a story of compassion and tolerance that speaks clearly to readers of all faiths. Elvina’s voice lingers long in memory, and her courage and humor long in the heart.

The Heart of the Matter: Studies in Jewish Mysticism and Theology

Product : The Heart of the Matter: Studies in Jewish Mysticism and Theology
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Judaism, like all the great religions, has a strand within it that sees inward devotion, the opening of the human heart to God’s presence, to be the purpose of its entire edifice of praxis, liturgy, and way of life. This voice is not always easy to hear in a tradition where so much attention is devoted to the how rather than the why of religious living. The devotional claim, certainly a key part of Judaism’s biblical heritage, has reasserted itself in the teachings of individual mystics and in the emergence of religious movements over the long course of Jewish history. This volume represents Arthur Green’s own quest for such a Judaism—as a rabbi, as a scholar, and as a contemporary seeker.  This collection of essays brings together Green’s scholarly writings, centered on the history of early Hasidism, and his highly personal approach to a rebirth of Jewish spirituality in our own day. In choosing to present them in this way he asserts a claim that they are all of a piece. They represent one man’s attempt to wade through history and text, language and symbol, and an array of voices both past and present while always focusing on the essential questions: “What does it mean to be a religious human being, and what does Judaism teach us about how to be one?” This, the author considers to be the heart of the matter.

Description : Internationally recognized scholar David Ellenson shares twenty-three of his most representative essays, drawing on three decades of scholarship and demonstrating the consistency of the intellectual-religious interests that have animated him throughout his lifetime. These essays center on a description and examination of the complex push and pull between Jewish tradition and Western culture.

Description : Ann Copeland jumps over the convent wall with Season of Apples, a book of stories about ordinary people surprised by their own sudden growth. With their special brand of serious good humour, Copeland's characters gently push readers towards their own self-knowledge. Men and women of all ages star in Season of Apples, and all find themselves at some kind of threshold or on the brink of a life change. In "Another Country," a mother finally connects with her own mother when she recognizes, in the midst of her son's dangerous illness, that "each generation is another country." A woman playing the piano for an Easter service in a home for the aged knows the frailty of human individuality, her own included, in "On the Other Side." In the title story, Leora May, colourless, habit-ridden, and chained to her small-town routine, rediscovers her capacity for joy when she's chosen to act in a television commercial. And, in the hilarious, odd, yet moving "Why Eat Pot Roast When You Can Sing?" identical twins Flor and Chlor sing through their lives with pianist Learned and drummer Free, and Flor and Learned's terrific tap-dancing son Robert.

Description : Corry Quinn starts off on the wrong foot. When he's very small, his mother dies. Then his feckless father, heading down the road from his Miramichi village to Toronto, deposits Corry with his Uncle Kid. Now, this is a pretty good arrangement: Kid knows full well that Corry's father will never come back to Silver Rapids, and he and Corry get along fine. But Corry is a sad young fellow. One winter day, angry and miserable, he sticks his tongue to an icy railroad spike. By the time the infection clears up and he gets out of hospital, half his tongue is gone, and he will never talk properly again. Strangely enough, his accident improves his life. He and Kid understand each other well, Kid talking, Corry writing notes. Kid is an ageing hippie with a heart of gold and a shed full of home-grown weed. This, not Kid's tiny fishing gear shop, supports the two of them. Eventually, after many tragicomic adventures involving girls, fish, and the elusive eastern cougar, both Kid and Corry grow up. Together they find simple yet cunning ways to turn their chub hole into a magical salmon pool, the shed into a sporting camp, Kid into an outfitter, and Corry into a man with a voice.

A Man for All Seasons: Monroe Sweetland and the Liberal Paradox

Product : A Man for All Seasons: Monroe Sweetland and the Liberal Paradox
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The life of prominent Oregon political leader Monroe Sweetland spans the spectrum of 20th-century America. Through seven decades, Sweetland experienced the economic collapse of the Great Depression, the unparalleled violence of a nation at war, the divisiveness of Cold War politics, and the cultural and political turmoil of the Vietnam War. Historian William G. Robbins illuminates the wrenching transformation of American political culture in A Man for All Seasons: Monroe Sweetland and the Liberal Paradox. Racial and economic inequalities motivated much of Sweetland’s civic life, including his lifelong memberships in the American Civil Liberties Committee, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Urban League, the Japanese American Citizens League, and the Red Cross, where Sweetland worked repatriating American prisoners of war after Japan’s surrender. Robbins’ portrait is holistic, exploring Sweetland’s socialist beginnings, inconsistencies in his politics—especially during the Cold War—and his regional legacy. He was the most important person in the resurgence of the modern, liberal Oregon Democratic Party from the late 1940s to the 1960s.  He joined the National Education Association in 1964 and became the driving force behind the Bilingual Education Act of 1968 and the fight for the age-18 vote, achieved in the ratification of the 26th amendment in 1971. Monroe Sweetland was a nationally prominent figure, whose fights bequeathed to modern America important legislation that shaped its political landscape.

Eleanor Baldwin and the Woman's Point of View: New Thought Radicalism in Portland's Progressive Era

Product : Eleanor Baldwin and the Woman's Point of View: New Thought Radicalism in Portland's Progressive Era
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Eleanor Baldwin and the Woman’s Point of View is an intellectual biography of a long-forgotten radical female journalist in Portland, whose daily women’s columns provide a window into the breadth of intellectual radicalism in Progressive Era journalism. Baldwin was one of an early generation of female journalists who were hired to lure female readers to the daily newspaper’s department store advertisements. Instead of catering to the demands of consumerism, Baldwin quickly brought an anti-capitalist, antiracist agenda to her column, “The Woman’s Point of View." She eschewed household hints and instead focused on the immorality of capitalists and imperialists while emphasizing the need for women to become independent and productive citizens.    A century before the Occupy movement and the Women’s March, Baldwin spoke truth to power. Imbued with a New Thought spirituality that presumed progressive thought could directly affect material reality, she wrote to move history forward. And yet, the trajectory of history proved as hard to forecast then as now.  While her personal story seems to embody a modern progressivism, blending abolition with labor reform and anti-banker activism—positions from which she never wavered—her path grew more complicated as times changed in the aftermath of World War I, when she would advocate on behalf of both the Bolsheviks and the Ku Klux Klan.   In this deeply researched and nuanced account of Eleanor Baldwin’s intellectual journey, historian Larry Lipin reveals how even the most dedicated radical can be overcome by unforeseen events. Eleanor Baldwin and the Woman’s Point of View restores a missing chapter in Portland’s Progressive Era history and rescues this passionate, intriguing, and quixotic character from undeserved obscurity.

In Search of York: The Slave Who Went to the Pacific with Lewis and Clark, Revised Edition

Product : In Search of York: The Slave Who Went to the Pacific with Lewis and Clark, Revised Edition
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The sole African American member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, William Clark''s enigmatic body servant York has inspired numerous myths about his character and exploits. He was supposed to be a man of superb physique and stamina, and some believed that he clowned and womanized his way across the continent and made no significant contributions to the outcome of the Expedition. More often than not, reputable historians have assumed that these myths surrounding him were reliable portrayals of the first black man to reach the Pacific Ocean.First published in 1985, Robert B. Betts'' unique account of this long-obscured historical figure is now back in an updated edition with new material and illustrations. In Search of York removes many of the fallacies surrounding York and pinpoints the important role he played in the success of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Through painstaking research and the synthesis of all the available information known about York, Betts exposes the impact of racial prejudice on historical interpretation. Neither the hero that a few romantic chroniclers have drawn nor the buffoon of many accounts tainted with racism, Betts'' York emerges as a believable human being touching both the heights and depths of the world he lived in.A significant contribution to Lewis and Clark studies, In Search of York is an invaluable model of historical inquiry for scholars and a fascinating story for all readers.

Colorado's Japanese Americans: From 1886 to the Present

Product : Colorado's Japanese Americans: From 1886 to the Present
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In Colorado's Japanese Americans, renowned journalist and author Bill Hosokawa pens the first history of this significant minority in the Centennial State. From 1886, when the young aristocrat Matsudaira Tadaatsu settled in Denver, to today, when Colorado boasts a population of more than 11,000 people of Japanese ancestry, Japanese Americans have worked to build homes, businesses, families, and friendships in the state. Hosokawa traces personal histories, such as Bob Sakata's journey from internment in a relocation camp to his founding of a prosperous truck farm; the conviction of three sisters for assisting the escape of German POWs; and the years of initiative and determination behind Toshihiro Kizaki's ownership of Sushi Den, a beloved Denver eatery. In addition to personal stories, the author also relates the larger history of the interweave of cultures in Colorado, from the founding of the Navy's Japanese language school at the University of Colorado to the merging of predominantly white and Japanese American congregations at Arvada's Simpson United Methodist Church. With the author's long view and sharp eye, Colorado's Japanese Americans creates a storied document of lasting legacy about the Issei and Nisei in Colorado.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : "Roa-de-la-Carrera convincingly shows that Gómara, as well as other historians in the period, cannot easily ignore nor erase the contradictions of the Spanish colonial project."- Luis Fernando Restrepo, University of Arkansas “In an eloquent and thorough exegesis, Roa-de-la-Carrera reveals how and why López de Gómara, having written the best of all possible books in exultation of Spanish imperialism, nevertheless failed to convince the readers of his time."- Susan Schroeder, Tulane University In Histories of Infamy, Cristián Roa-de-la-Carrera explores Francisco López de Gómara's (1511-ca.1559) attempt to ethically reconcile Spain's civilizing mission with the conquistadors' abuse and exploitation of Native peoples. The most widely read account of the conquest in its time, Gómara's Historia general de las Indias y Conquista de México rationalized the conquistadors' crimes as unavoidable evils in the task of bringing "civilization" to the New World. Through an elaborate defense of Spanish imperialism, Gómara aimed to convince his readers of the merits of the conquest, regardless of the devastation it had wrought upon Spain's new subjects. Despite his efforts, Gómara's apologist text quickly fell into disrepute and became ammunition for Spain's critics. Evaluating the effectiveness of ideologies of colonization, Roa-de-la-Carrera's analysis will appeal to scholars in colonial studies and readers interested in the history of the Americas.

Hunter-Gatherer Archaeology of the Colorado High Country

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Hunter-Gatherer Archaeology of the Colorado High Country offers data on 8,000 years of cultural change across a wide area of western Colorado and updates archaeological methodology in the mountain West.Synthesizing research from several important, previously neglected sites, the book anchors its findings in a massive body of data that Mark Stiger gathered over eight years at Tenderfoot - a large lithic-scatter site once categorized as insignificant. Advances in spatial analysis, theoretical approaches, and excavation methods have allowed lithic-scatter sites, once considered less revealing than intact structures and similar sites, to yield startlingly rich cultural evidence.Presenting artifactual data that reflects changes in houses, game drives, fire pits, stone tools, and debitage, Stiger explains the cultural sequence in the Upper Gunnison Basin and its connections to changes across the West.  He relates environmental and cultural changes, relying on paleoenvironmental evidence, changes in floral and faunal usage patterns, and data recovered in multi-year, repetitive surface collections.  An overview and critique of past research in the region complements discussion of the advantages of horizontally extensive block excavations and other contemporary ways of excavating and analyzing surface sites.Stiger''s findings hold promise for future research, as high-altitude surface sites are common, under-researched, and relatively well-preserved. The advances in archaeological method and theory that enabled Stiger''s outstanding results in the Upper Gunnison Basin will allow many other Western sites to yield fascinating evidence.

Just One Vote: From Jim Walding's Nomination to Constitutional Defeat

Product : Just One Vote: From Jim Walding's Nomination to Constitutional Defeat
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : On January 12, 1986, Jim Walding was nominated as the New Democratic Party candidate for the Manitoba constituency of St. Vital. Although Walding had been an MLA for fifteen years, he had fallen out of favour with key elements in his party, and won the nomination by only a single vote. Walding went on, in turn, to bring down his own government by a single vote, marking the only time in the history of Canadian politics that a majority government was brought down from within. Combining data drawn from archives, interviews, and the media, Just One Vote is a vivid and exceptionally detailed study of the nomination process. Ian Stewart outlines the geographic, social, and political backdrop behind Walding’s contested party nomination, the unusual chain of events triggered by the contestation, including the fall of the Pawley government and the NDP’s defeat in the 1988 provincial election, and examines the fallout from these events on Manitobans and Canadians.

Description : The 1960s defined a generation. Young people across North America rebelled against the conservative, consumer-driven society of the 1950s and spawned a social revolution that was felt the world over. Photographer Gerry Kopelow came of age in the late sixties. At the age of eighteen, with camera in hand he hit the road on a cross-country photographic journey that took him from Winnipeg to Toronto and Ottawa. All Our Changes: Images from the Sixties Generation chronicles that journey and the shared experiences of a generation that was redefining the nature of personal identity and societal responsibility.All Our Changes is a stunning collection of 160 black and white photographs taken between 1968 and 1970. These images capture the innocence and earnestness of the early Canadian hippie movement, from political protests and speakers’ corners, to Festival Express and the Mariposa Folk Festival. Joni Mitchell is here, as are the Guess Who, but so are everyday kids hitching rides, hanging out, and, one by one, forever changing the Canadian political and cultural landscape.

Report of an Inquiry into an Injustice: Begade Shutagot'ine and the Sahtu Treaty

Product : Report of an Inquiry into an Injustice: Begade Shutagot'ine and the Sahtu Treaty
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A Report of an Inquiry into an Injustice chronicles Peter Kulchyski’s experiences with the Begade Shuhtagot’ine, a small community of a few hundred people living in and around Tulita (formerly Fort Norman), on the Mackenzie River in the heart of Canada’s Northwest Territories. Despite their formal objections and boycott of the agreement, the band and their lands were included in the Sahtu treaty, a modern comprehensive land claims agreement negotiated between the Government of Canada and the Sahtu Tribal Council, representing Dene and Metis peoples of the region. While both Treaty Eleven (1921) and the Sahtu Treaty (1994) purport to extinguish Begade Shuhtagot''ine Aboriginal title, oral history and documented attempts to exclude themselves from treaty strongly challenge the validity of that extinguishment.Structured as a series of briefs to an inquiry into the Begade Shutagot’ine’s claim, this manuscript documents the negotiation and implementation of the Sahtu treaty and amasses evidence of historical and continued presence and land use to make eminently clear that the Begade Shuhtagot''ine are the continued owners of the land by law: they have not extinguished title to their traditional territories; they continue to exercise their customs, practices, and traditions on those territories; and they have a fundamental right to be consulted on, and refuse or be compensated for, development projects on those territories. Kulchyski bears eloquent witness to the Begade Shuhtagot''ine people''s two-decade struggle for land rights, which have been blatantly ignored by federal and territorial authorities for too long.

High River and the Times: An Alberta Community and Its Weekly Newspaper, 1905-1966

Product : High River and the Times: An Alberta Community and Its Weekly Newspaper, 1905-1966
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : High River and the Times is an engaging study of how weekly newspapers reflect and articulate the values and aspirations of the rural communities they serve. Among thousands of weeklies that have appeared (and often disappeared) throughout Canadian history, the High River Times occupies a special position. Many times it received awards and honours as one of the best weekly newspapers in the country. From its founding in 1905 until 1966 it was owned and operated by the family of former Prime Minister Joe Clark. Based in the small town of High River, Alberta, 38 miles south of Calgary, the Times served an extensive hinterland of ranchers and farmers. Over six decades the community experienced three distinctive eras in its development, and the Times reflected the concerns and hopes of each them. When settlers poured into the district early in the twentieth century, High River thrived by supplying them with goods and services. Like other boom towns, it launched promotional campaigns to stimulate further growth. The Times played an aggressive role in this crusade, serving as the chief organ of local boosterism and fashioning a vision of High River as an emerging city commanding a vast hinterland of resource development, railways, and industry. After the Great War when the settlement boom ended, and drought and recession gripped Western Canada, urban growth fizzled in most prairie towns, including High River. It soon faced the reality that it would long remain a small service centre. The Times now began to promote small town and rural life as a virtue, and contrasted it favourably with the trouble-plagued big city. It cleverly combined this new vision with a campaign to promote tourism as the catalyst for future economic growth by emphasizing such pastoral attractions as the scenery of the foothills and mountains, hunting and fishing, and dude ranches. The Great Depression ensured that the town would remain small, the district rural, and the wilderness unspoiled. World War II and the post-war era brought renewed prosperity to the community, but the spectre of rural depopulation threatened to undermine growth, a troubling development that received considerable attention in the Times. Moreover, the roads and automobiles that once promised to bring visitors to the district now whisked them to the city. Faced with commercial decline, High River sought to make a virtue of its very obsolescence. The Times now presented the district as a living relic of the old, wild west, and it promoted rodeo, chuckwagon racing, and other cowtown attractions designed to attract tourists. A town that once presented itself as bustling and modern, and then small and friendly, now prided itself on being old-fashioned, and with the help of the Times, constructed a mythical past to fit the image.

Building Sustainable Peace

Product : Building Sustainable Peace
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This volume is a critical reflection on what has come to be known as peacebuilding. The reality is that while peacebuilding has been practiced for sometime in many hot spots around the globe, the theory of peacebuilding has been left behind. The contributors to this volume have made a valiant effort to marry the practice and the theory of this complex and intricate tool. Peacebuilding involves a number of diverse instruments and players, and much like an orchestra, the instruments must be finely tuned and the players must work in concert in order to produce anything resembling a coherent approach to post-conflict reconciliation and sustainable peace. Its ultimate goal is to prevent and or resolve violent conflicts, create or restore peaceful conditions and lay the foundation and building blocks for an enduring peace through the strengthening of institutions of governance. This naturally should involve both social engineering and societal transformation from a culture of violence to a culture of peace - what we consider as ''structural peacebuilding''. However, to facilitate this transition, we need to have a clear understanding not only of the nature of already established war cultures, but of the presuppositions we bring to the understanding of those cultures. We then need to understand not only what is required to construct a peace that is durable but also how to do so in order not to recreate the unsustainable institutions and structures that originally contributed to conflict. This is not an easy exercise, but the contributors to this volume are up to the task. They draw out from the accumulating data and experience on peacebuilding operations those elements and recommendations that can assist policy makers in advancing sustainable peace in war ravaged states. Each chapter systematically describes the multiple tasks, tools, and actors involved in addressing both proximate and structural causes of conflict. They demonstrate that the real challenge for scholars and practitioners involved in observing or carrying out peacebuilding activities is to stand back from the prevailing understandings of what peacebuilding ought to be and critically assess the burgeoning activities which fall under the label of peacebuilding. The authors in this volume have begun this process, using a cosmopolitan ethics framework as a guide. Such a framework holds out hope that conflict and competition can be conducted non-violently, humanely, decently, and honorably so that, in the end, the goal of peacebuilding - sustainable peace - can be achieved.

When Edmonton Was Young

Product : When Edmonton Was Young
Category : Books>History>Americas
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Edmonton, circa 1910, never thought of itself as small. The citizens were young, an unlikely concentration of resourceful individuals attracted from older places where they''d have to wait for middle age to be leaders. The young city comes alive in the stories they enjoyed telling on themselves as their budding metropolis remained stuck at the bud stage for half a century. These stories are chucklers, which may seem trifles, but add up to a warm, authentic portrait of Edmonton as it was, and in many ways, still is. Readers who enjoy Tony''s previous books, such as Edmonton: Stories from the River City, are sure to love When Edmonton Was Young.

Retiring the Crow Rate: A Narrative of Political Management

Product : Retiring the Crow Rate: A Narrative of Political Management
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The Holy Crow.... How do you change one of Canada''s most politically sensitive policies? Retiring the Crow Rate is an exacting study in the process of changing an entrenched public policy which many in the West saw as their birthright. It is also a rewarding work of memoir and a tribute to Jean-Luc Pepin''s prowess as an engaging politician. Arthur Kroeger''s deft narration of the events which led to the end of the The Crow in the early 1980s also reveals his character as an exemplary public servant. Political scientists and students, western historians, politically engaged Canadians, and those who fondly remember Arthur Kroeger as Canada''s ''dean of deputy ministers'' will want Retiring the Crow Rate on their bookshelves.

Description : Elora: The Early History of Elora and Vicinity provides little-known details about the settlement and development of the Elora area in southern Ontario from the earliest settler in 1817. Then, as now, people were drawn to the Elora Gorge and the rocky banks of the Grand River. The book is a compilation of material that appeared weekly in The Elora Express between 1906 and 1909 with some additional material from the 1920s. Connon traces the settlers as they arrive and reports on the development of the town as they acquired a grist mill, a store, a bridge, and inevitably a railway. Rich with genealogical information, this is an important historical document. Introduction by Gerald Noonan.

The Social Setting of the Ministry as Reflected in the Writings of Hermas, Clement and Ignatius

Product : The Social Setting of the Ministry as Reflected in the Writings of Hermas, Clement and Ignatius
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality>Christianity>Church
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Focussing on three first- and early-second-century documents (the Shepherd of Hermas, 1 Clement and the Ignatian epistles), this work contributes to a growing body of literature concerned with the social setting of early Christianity. Maier argues that the development of structures of leadership in the early Christian church is best accounted for by reference to the hospitality, patronage, and leadership of wealthy hosts who invited local Christian groups to meet in their homes. Sociological models and types are employed to analyze the tensions that arose from excesses of patronage and leadership by the well-to-do. Recognizing the socio-economic setting of these conflicts corrects the interpretation of early Christian conflicts over the ministry as purely theological and doctrinali.

Desire Never Leaves: The Poetry of Tim Lilburn

Product : Desire Never Leaves: The Poetry of Tim Lilburn
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Poetry
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The selected poems in Desire Never Leaves span Tim Lilburn’s career, demonstrating the evolution of a unique and careful thinker as he takes his place among the nation’s premier writers. This edition of his poetry untangles many of the strands running through his works, providing insight into a poetic world that is both spectacular and humbling. The introduction by Alison Calder situates Lilburn’s writing in an alternate tradition of prairie poetry that relies less on the vernacular and more on philosophy and meditation. Examining Lilburn’s antecedents in Christian mysticism and the ascetic tradition, Calder stresses the paradoxical nature of Lilburn’s writing—the expression of loss through plenitude. The divine in the natural world is glimpsed in brief flashes; nevertheless, the poet, driven by love, continues his quest for what glitters in things. Tim Lilburn’s afterword is an evocative meditation grounded in personal history. He speaks of how poetry, a craning quiet, allows one to hear what is alive in the world. He also describes how poetry is resolutely attached to both a historical moment and an individual subjectivity that is inevitably anchored in time. Lilburn’s poetry is both a religious undertaking and a political gesture that speaks to the urgency of situating ourselves where we live.

La Serenissima: Eighteenth-century Venetian Art from North American Collections

Product : La Serenissima: Eighteenth-century Venetian Art from North American Collections
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : For over a millennium, the Italian coastal state of the Most Serene Republic of Venice, or La Serenissima, flourished as a center for sea trade and the arts. Here an important final phase of late Baroque mythological and Biblical painting took place. Venice also became an important destination on the Grand Tour, where its aquatic setting and unique network of canals, palaces, and churches inspired a talented group of view painters, especially during the eighteenth century. Today, collections throughout North America hold many works from this prolific period.La Serenissima presents new scholarship on works that have not received due public attention in recent years and brings together approximately 65 works of art from more than 25 collections. Together, they represent important regional developments in religious and topographical painting as well as genre and portraiture. These artworks display the inimitable aspects of Venetian taste and culture in the age of the Grand Tour and through the decline of the Republic. La Serenissima also casts new light on the achievements of Venetian view painters, including master painter Antonio Canaletto, Bernardo Bellotto, Luca Carlevarijs, and Francesco Guardi.

Description : In the 1970s, an era of actual and threatened energy shortages, Canada and indeed all of North America, were paying increased attention to the fabulous oil sands of northeastern Alberta. Although rich in their promise for the future, the sands were no new discovery -- fur traders and explorers commented on them for over two hundred years. And for more than half a century, scientists and engineers wrestled with the problems of separating the oil from the sand and delivering it to market at a competitive price. But these rich resources do not exist in vacuo; the exploitation of the oil sands has had enormous consequences, not always foreseen, on the region and its people. The purpose of this publication was not to be a manual on the petrochemical industry, but to describe briefly, and in non-technical terms, the oil sand area and its people, and to tell something of their rich historical and other background.

Dorothy Smith examines the changing relation between the family and the economy in the context of the capitalist mode of production. Varda Burstyn traces the history of the sexual division of labour in pre-capitalist societies and shows how in industrial societies the state becomes the expression and enforcer of masculine domination.

Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), Lebanese-born artist and writer, was best known for authoring The Prophet, a collection of short philosophical essays that became one of the top selling books of the twentieth century. In 1895, Gibran, age twelve, immigrated to Boston with his family. Through a series of important connections stemming from the recognition of his creative talents at a local settlement house, the aspiring artist met Mary Haskell, the headmaster of a Boston girls'' school. Despite a ten year separation in age, the two formed an important lifelong relationship that culminated in Haskell''s patronage and provided Gibran with the security to pursue his career. In 1950, Haskell (who became Mary Haskell Minis in 1926) donated her personal collection of nearly one hundred works of art by Gibran to the Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia.Comprising two essays, this book features the Telfair''s collection of work by and about Gibran, the largest holding in the United States. The collection spans Gibran''s career from his first major exhibition at photographer Frederick Holland Day''s studio in Boston in 1904 to works created during the last years of his life. It includes photographs of Gibran and his New York studio and a portrait of the young artist painted by Lilla Cabot Perry.Sammons'' essay discusses the visionary artist''s creations as well as addresses Gibran''s relationship with Haskell and the development of her personal collection, which makes up the majority of the Telfair''s Gibran holdings.Bushrui''s essay focuses on Gibran''s literary contributions through six of Gibran''s English-written books from which the Telfair collection includes original illustrations by the artist. These books include The Madman (1918), The Forerunner (1920), Sand and Foam (1926), Jesus the Son of Man (1928), The Earth Gods (1931), and The Garden of the Prophet.

The Legendary Life and Fables of Aesop

Product : The Legendary Life and Fables of Aesop
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : We all have heard of the few well-known Aesop's fables (such as The North Wind and the Sun and The Hen and the Golden Eggs) but how much do you know about the life of the man himself?Mayvis Anthony brings us this story in a truly unique book that includes both the rare, ancient biography of Aesop, the legendary 'father' of fables and over a hundred of his fables, many of them have been lost over time and are now brought back to print in this book. Here we see Aesop, born a slave in 550 BCE, but who eventually overcame his lowly status through sheer wit and intelligence. We follow him through his many memorable and sometimes, humorous encounters encounters with his master, Xanthus, a renowned philosopher of his time, his eventual rise to become a famous ambassador and then to his untimely end. This is a distillation of all the oldest biographies of Aesop, meticulously researched from many out-of-print resources and then brought to life in today's modern language.There are two sets of illustrations. The chapters on the life of Aesop are illustrated by Toronto artist Mary Anne Miller, who accurately captured the time-period of Aesop through historical research and are unique to this book. The fables are illustrated by American, Grace Muscarella, whose silhouette drawings were done while she was stationed in Greece back in 1958. Together, they recreate a book reminiscent of the original books of these fables that were created to be appreciated by all ages.This is the first book edited by Mayvis Anthony whose belief in the modern wisdom of the fables and their relevance to our chaotic world today led her to rekindle interest in this ancient form of story-telling.
