A History of the Indians of the United States

Product : A History of the Indians of the United States
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In 1906 when the Creek Indian Chitto Harjo was protesting the United States government's liquidation of his tribe's lands, he began his argument with an account of Indian history from the time of Columbus, for, of course, a thing has to have a root before it can grow. Yet even today most intelligent non-Indian Americans have little knowledge of Indian history and affairs those lessons have not taken root.This book is an in-depth historical survey of the Indians of the United States, including the Eskimos and Aleuts of Alaska, which isolates and analyzes the problems which have beset these people since their first contacts with Europeans. Only in the light of this knowledge, the author points out, can an intelligent Indian policy be formulated.In the book are described the first meetings of Indians with explorers, the dispossession of the Indians by colonial expansion, their involvement in imperial rivalries, their beginning relations with the new American republic, and the ensuing century of war and encroachment.The most recent aspects of government Indian policy are also detailed the good and bad administrative practices and measures to which the Indians have been subjected and their present situation.Miss Debo's style is objective, and throughout the book the distinct social environment of the Indians is emphasized--an environment that is foreign to the experience of most white men. Through ignorance of that culture and life style the results of non-Indian policy toward Indians have been centuries of blundering and tragedy.In response to Indian history, an enlightened policy must be formulated: protection of Indian land, vocational and educational training, voluntary relocation, encouragement of tribal organization, recognition of Indians' social groupings, and reliance on Indians' abilities to direct their own lives.The result of this new policy would be a chance for Indians to live now, whether on their own land or as adjusted members of white society. Indian history is usually highly specialized and is never recorded in books of general history. This book unifies the many specialized volumes which have been written about their history and culture. It has been written not only for persons who work with Indians or for students of Indian culture, but for all Americans of good will.

Molly Spotted Elk:  A Penobscot in Paris

Product : Molly Spotted Elk: A Penobscot in Paris
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : This biography chronicles the extraordinary life of twentieth-century performing artist Molly Spotted Elk. Born in 1903 on the Penobscot reservation in Maine, Molly ventured into show business at an early age, performing vaudeville in New York, starring in the classic docudrama The Silent Enemy, then dancing for royalty and mingling with the literary elite in Europe. In Paris she found an audience more appreciative of authentic Native dance than in the United States. There she married a French journalist, but she was forced to leave him and flee France with her daughter during the German occupation of 1940. Using extensive diaries in conjunction with letters, interviews, and other sources, Bunny McBride reconstructs Molly's story and sheds light on the pressure she and her peers endured in having to act out white stereotypes of the Indian.

Faulkner And The Discourses Of Culture

Product : Faulkner And The Discourses Of Culture
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Charles Hannon argues in his brilliant new study that the language of Faulkner''s fiction is replete with the voiced conflicts that shaped America and the South from the 1920s to 1950. Specifically, Hannon takes five contemporary debates--in historiography, law, labor, ethnography, and film--and relates them both to canonical and less-discussed texts of Faulkner. Hannon employs a theoretical middle ground between Michael Bakhtin''s stylistics of the novel and Michel Foucault''s model of discourse as an autonomous self-regulated domain, while also drawing from the vast critical literature on Faulkner''s fiction. He links the story cycle The Unvanquished to the battle over interpretations of American history; Faulkner''s detective fiction of the early 1930s to the emerging schism in the legal realm; Absalom, Absalom! to the Wagner Act of 1935 as well as to contract disputes in the South and in the film studios of Hollywood; and The Hamlet to the development of the ethnographic method in the field of anthropology. A fascinating analysis of the filming of Intruder in the Dust in Faulkner''s hometown of Oxford concludes his study. Through keen interpretive readings, Hannon reveals that Faulkner--who often seemed to be detached from influence--was intensely attentive to ideas of his time.

The Deacon Reader

Product : The Deacon Reader
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The essays collected in this book, which is sure to be at the foundation of every deacon''s library, aim to give the reader an overview of the theological and pastoral nature of the diaconate and thus to clarify the fundamental identity of the deacon, for those who are discerning such a call as aspirants and those who are already candidates for the office. Editor and contributor James Keating divides the book into three sections: historical foundations, pastoral foundations, and sociological foundations for the diaconate, i.e., the core elements of the diaconal identity. Some of the subjects covered are the history of the diaconate, the morality of the deacon, the deacon and work, and the deacon''s wife. The most significant deacon theologians contribute to this text as well as priest experts on the diaconate. It is a complete systematic academic text for the first years of formation of deacons according to the New Roman National Directory (2005). As such, it is indispensable. This is the first text ever that specifies the theological formation of the deacon student over a range of themes and specialties. There is nothing like it in print.

The Catholic Luther: His Early Writings

Product : The Catholic Luther: His Early Writings
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Martin Luther (1483 1546), the great German Church reformer, is often erroneously seen as someone who suddenly made a complete break with Catholicism and started his own denomination. Nothing could be further from the truth. Rather than intending to break with Catholicism, Luther sought to purge the Church from what he rightly as more recent research has acknowledged saw as abuses, above all the sale of indulgences as if one could buy one s way into heaven. The Catholic Luther presents seven writings by Luther that demonstrate his deep Catholicity. The Magnificat Put into German and Explained displays his (lifelong) devotion to the Virgin Mary; the Sermon at Coburg shows how he continued to value the devotion to the saints for evangelical purposes; and the treatise on the Lord's Supper from 1519 demonstrates Luther s nonpolemical and rich eucharistic piety in particular and a sacramental piety in general. Another eucharistic text, one each on the sacraments of baptism and of penance, and a sermon on preparing to die round out the collection. Prominent Luther scholars Philip Krey and Peter Krey offer an extensive introduction to this aspect of Luther s work along with brief introductions to each of Luther s texts. For Catholics and Protestants alike who are interested in coming to know this little known and genuinely appealing side of Martin Luther, The Catholic Luther is an indispensable resource.

Hong Kong Cinema: A Cross-Cultural View

Product : Hong Kong Cinema: A Cross-Cultural View
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Starting with the first Western shadow plays shown in the late 1890s, motion pictures have played a significant role in China''s cultural existence for more than a century. Initially centered in Shanghai, Chinese cinema boomed in Hong Kong in the 1930s, aided by the advent of talkies and the influx of talent and investment from mainland China, Southeast Asia, and America. From the late 1940s, the territory supplanted Shanghai as the Hollywood of China. In Hong Kong Cinema: A Cross-Cultural View, authors Law Kar and Frank Bren follow the story from Hong Kong''s early silent, Chuang Tsi Tests His Wife, through the martial arts craze of the 1970s, to the medium''s continued appeal to contemporary international audiences. Rather than provide a sweeping history, the authors focus on the impact of individual personalities, particularly local filmmakers and movie stars. They also consider Eastern and Western influences and examine major developments, including the changing role of women. By profiling key figures and events of the 20th century, this overview is the perfect introduction for anyone interested in Hong Kong''s contribution to world cinema. Illustrated with photos.

In the Garden: Essays in Honor of Frances Hodgson Burnett

Product : In the Garden: Essays in Honor of Frances Hodgson Burnett
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Essays and Letters
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Frances Hodgson Burnett, author of The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and Little Lord Fauntleroy, was one of the most successful and controversial women of her time. Burnett''s flamboyant persona and unconventional lifestyle made her a contentious figure in Victorian society, and for generations after her death, her own family refused to acknowledge her. Burnett is best known for her children''s literature, but she began her career as a bestselling adult novelist. The themes of Burnett''s adult novels were often serious: working women, abusive marriages, and single motherhood, and for many years these novels have been overshadowed by the fame of her children''s books. Recently, however, scholars have rediscovered these works and have begun to study and write about them. In 2003 at California State University, Fresno, Angelica Carpenter convened the first conference ever held about this famous author. Scholars, fans, and collectors gathered to contribute to the knowledge on the author and to discuss her accomplishments. The talks ranged from scholarly to conversational, covering Burnett''s books for both children and adults, the plays and movies that were made from them, the books they inspired, and the way in which the author''s life was reflected in her fiction. In the Garden: Essays in Honor of Frances Hodgson Burnett recreates many of the conference talks, as well as other essays offering practical advice for collectors and the first interview ever published with Burnett''s great-granddaughter, who inherited the family archive.

The A To Z Of The Civil War: Volume 1 (A-L) and Volume 2 (M-Z)

Product : The A To Z Of The Civil War: Volume 1 (A-L) and Volume 2 (M-Z)
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The Civil War was the most traumatic event in American history, pitting Americans against one another, rending the national fabric, leaving death and devastation in its wake, and instilling an anger that has not entirely dissipated even to this day. Thus, it is essential to have a resource that can inform about this terrible war clearly and objectively, providing the indispensable details while also offering an overall view. This nearly impossible task has been attempted frequently but rarely accomplished as well as by the Historical Dictionary of the Civil War, which now appears as a somewhat abbreviated A to Z of the Civil War. An overview of the war is provided in the fairly extensive introduction, covering the causes, the course of the war, and the conclusion. It is then followed-sometimes almost day-by-day-in the chronology. Hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries, taking up over 1,500 pages, fill in the basic details on persons, places, events, institutions, battles, and campaigns. The bibliography directs readers to other sources of information.

Several indexes are also included, giving a checklist of books by Bloesch, a checklist of books to which Bloesch has contributed, and a list of book reviews that Bloesch has written about other authors. Finally, there is an alphabetical index of titles, names, and periodicals cited in the bibliography, making this the most comprehensive resource available on Bloesch.

Ladies in the Laboratory III: South African, Australian, New Zealand, and Canadian Women in Science: Nineteenth and Early Twentie

Product : Ladies in the Laboratory III: South African, Australian, New Zealand, and Canadian Women in Science: Nineteenth and Early Twentie
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Published in 1998, Ladies in the Laboratory provided a systematic survey and comparison of the work of 19th-century American and British women in scientific research. A companion volume, published in 2004, focused on women scientists from Western Europe. In this third volume, author Mary R.S. Creese expands her scope to include the contributions of 19th- and early 20th-century women of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.The women whose lives and work are discussed here range from natural history collectors and scientific illustrators of the early and mid years of the 19th century to the first generation of graduates of the new colonial colleges and universities. Rarely acknowledged in publications of the British and European specialists, the contributions of these women nonetheless formed a significant part of the natural history information about extensive, previously unknown regions and their products.Rather than a biographical dictionary or a collection of self-contained essays on individuals from many time periods, Ladies in the Laboratory III is a connected narrative tied into the wider framework of 19th-century science and education. A well-organized blend of individual life stories and quantitative information, this volume is for everyone interested in the story of women''s participation in 19th century science. The stories of these women make for fascinating reading and serve as a valuable source for the student of women''s and colonial history.

The Clash Of Images

Product : The Clash Of Images
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : “Reading Kilito has always been, for me, an adventure. Kilito dares the reader to travel with him, riding over the frontiers between fiction and reality, between literary criticism and storytelling. He is a writer with his own personal library; a reader who invents an imaginary present out of fragments drawn from the past. The Clash of Images is a marvelous book, a mysterious alchemy of tale and teller. This student of Roland Barthes proves the French master’s point: every critic could be a novelist in disguise.”—Elias Khoury, author of Gate of the Sun Abdelfattah Kilito’s The Clash of Images is an enchanting collection of linked stories set in a coastal city of memories. It is a time when the old Arabic world of texts and oral traditions is making way for something new—the modern era of the image, the comic book, photo IDs, and the cinema. Together, the stories form a kaleidoscopic memoir of growing up in two worlds, a brilliant mixture of cultural and family history. Here are tales of first kisses and first reads, Tintin and the Prophet Muhammad, fantasies of the Wild West, the inferno of the bathhouse, and the lost paradises of childhood. The Clash of Images is a magic lantern of a book, a celebration of storytelling and all its pleasures that is beautifully translated by Robyn Creswell, who won a PEN Translation Fund Award for this collection.

Crime in Verse: The Poetics of Murder in the Victorian Era

Product : Crime in Verse: The Poetics of Murder in the Victorian Era
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Over the last few decades, Victorian scholars have produced many nuanced studies connecting the politics of crime to the generic developments of the novel—and vice versa. Ellen L. O’Brien’s Crime in Verse grants the same attention and status to poetic representations of crime. Considering the literary achievements and cultural engagements of poetry while historicizing murder’s entanglement in legal fictions, punitive practices, medical theories, class conflicts, and gender codes, O’Brien argues that shifting approaches to poetry and conflicted understandings of murder allowed poets to align problems of legal and literary interpretation in provocative, disruptive, and innovative ways.Developing focused analyses of generic and discursive meanings, individual chapters examine the classed politics of crime and punishment in the broadside ballad, the epistemological tensions of homicidal lunacy and criminal responsibility in the dramatic monologue, and the legal and ideological frictions of domestic violence in the verse novel and verse drama. Their juxtaposition of the rhymes of anonymous street balladeers, the underexamined verse of “minor” poets, and the familiar poems of canonical figures suggests the interactive and intertextual relationships informing poetic agendas and political arguments. As it simultaneously reconsiders the institutional and ideological status of murder and the aesthetic and political interests of poetry, Crime in Verse offers new ways of thinking about Victorian poetry’s contents and contexts.

Tarpeia: Workings Of A Roman Myth

Product : Tarpeia: Workings Of A Roman Myth
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : According to legends of Rome’s foundation, Tarpeia was a maiden who betrayed Romulus’ city to the invading Sabines. She was then crushed to death by the Sabines’ shields and her body hurled from the Tarpeian Rock, which became the place from which subsequent traitors of the city were thrown. In this volume, Tara S. Welch explores the uses and contours of Tarpeia’s myth through several centuries of Roman history and across several types of ancient sources, including Latin and Greek texts in various genres.   Welch demonstrates how ancient thinkers used Tarpeia’s myth to highlight matters of ethics, gender, ethnicity, political authority, language, conquest, and tradition. This cluster of themes reveals that Tarpeia’s myth is not primarily about what it means to be human, but rather what it means to be Roman. Thus Tarpeia’s story spans centuries, distances, genres, and modes of communication—Rome itself did. No Greek city-state could admit such continuity, and Greece was never so constant. In this way, though Tarpeia has a dozen Greek cousins whose stories are similar to hers, hers is a powerfully Roman myth, even for the Greeks who told her tale. She is token, totem, and symbol of Rome.

Product : Networking the World, 1794-2000
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In the age of satellites and the Internet, worldwide communication has become increasingly unified amid overblown claims about the redemptive possibilities of international networks. But this rhetoric is hardly new. As Armand Mattelart demonstrates in Networking the World, 1794-2000, globalization and its attendant hype have existed since road and rail were the fastest way to move information.Mattelart plates contemporary global communication networks into historical context and shows that the networking of the world began much earlier than many assume, in the late eighteenth century. He argues that the internationalization of communication was spawned by such Enlightenment ideals as universalism and liberalism, and exmines how the development of global communications has been inextricably linked to the industrial revolution, modern warfare, and the emergence of nationalism. Throughout, Mattelart eloquently argues that discourses of better living through globalization often mask projects of political, economic, and cultural domination.

Avatars Of Story

Product : Avatars Of Story
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Current Events
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Since its inception, narratology has developed primarily as an investigation of literary narrative fiction. Linguists, folklorists, psychologists, and sociologists have expanded the inquiry toward oral storytelling, but narratology remains primarily concerned with language-supported stories. In Avatars of Story, Marie-Laure Ryan moves beyond literary works to examine other media, especially electronic narrative forms.  By grappling with semiotic media other than language and technology other than print, she reveals how story, a form of meaning that transcends cultures and media,  achieves  diversity by presenting itself under multiple avatars. Ryan begins by considering, among other texts, a 1989 Cubs-Giants baseball broadcast, the reality television show Survivor, and the film The Truman Show. In all these texts, she sees a narrative that organizes meaning without benefit of hindsight, anticipating the real-time dimension of computer games. She then expands her inquiry to new media. In a discussion covering text-based interactive fiction such as Spider and Web and Galatea, hypertexts such as Califia and Patchwork Girl, multimedia works such as Juvenate, Web-based short narratives, and Façade, a multimedia, AI-supported project in interactive drama, she focuses on how narrative meaning is affected by the authoring software, such as the Infocom parser, the Storyspace hypertext-producing system, and the programs Flash and Director. She also examines arguments that have been brought up against considering computer games such as The Sims and EverQuest as a form of narrative, and responds by outlining an approach to computer games that reconciles their imaginative  and strategic dimension. In doing so, Ryan distinguishes a wide spectrum of narrative modes, such as utilitarian, illustrative, indeterminate, metaphorical, participatory, emergent, and simulative. Ultimately, Ryan stresses the difficulty of reconciling narrativity with interactivity and anticipates the time when media will provide new ways to experience stories.  Marie-Laure Ryan is an independent scholar and the author of, most recently, Narrative as Virtual Reality: Immersion and Interactivity in Literature and Electronic Media.

Socialism and Modernity

Product : Socialism and Modernity
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : This first collection of Peter Beilharz''s highly influential thought traces the themes and problems, manifestations, and trajectories of socialism and modernity as they connect and shift over a twenty-year period. Woven throughout Beilharz''s analysis is the urgent question of modern utopia: how do we imagine freedom and equality in modernity?The essays in this volume explore the relationship between socialism and modernity across the United States, Europe, and Australia from the mid-1980s to the turn of the twenty-first century, a time that witnessed the global triumph of capitalism and the dramatic turn away from Marxism and socialism to modernity as the dominant perspective. According to Beilharz, we have seen the expansion of a kind of Weberian Marxism, with the concept of revolution giving way to the idea of pluralized forms of power and the idea of rupture giving way to the postmodern sense of difference. These changes come together with the discourse of modernism, both aesthetic and technological.Socialism and modernity, Beilharz argues, are fundamentally interrelated. In correcting the conflation of Marxism, Bolshevism, and socialism that occludes contemporary political thinking, he reopens a space for discussion of what socialist politics might look like now-in the postcommunist-postcolonial-postmodern moment.

Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Galileo’s dictum that the book of nature “is written in the language of mathematics” is emblematic of the accepted view that the scientific revolution hinged on the conceptual and methodological integration of mathematics and natural philosophy. Although the mathematization of nature is a distinctive and crucial feature of the emergence of modern science in the seventeenth century, this volume shows that it was a far more complex, contested, and context-dependent phenomenon than the received historiography has indicated, and that philosophical controversies about the implications of mathematization cannot be understood in isolation from broader social developments related to the status and practice of mathematics in various commercial, political, and academic institutions.Contributors: Roger Ariew, U of South Florida; Richard T.

Description : Winner of the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis'' (NAAC) Gradiva Award for Interpretation and Psychoanalysis (2005)We are all sensitive beings, both physically and emotionally. What do we do with our sensitivity? How much of our sensitivity can we take? How do we become partners with our sensitivity in ways that make life worthwhile? In The Sensitive Self, renowned psychologist Michael Eigen explores the varied nuances of sensitivity as it threads its way through all facets of our lives. Individual case studies, often achingly honest, are woven together by Eigen’s deeply felt meditations, bringing us into the heart of psychotherapy. We see how our sensitivity to self and others plays a crucial role in sustaining our sense of aliveness. Ultimately, Eigen argues, sensitivity is the basis for a humane ethics. Powerful and illuminating, The Sensitive Self follows up on the themes of Eigen’s previous books, Rage and Ecstasy, with which Eigen has established himself as one of today’s most creative thinkers in psychology.

Heritage: DaughterS Memories Of Louis Bromfield

Product : Heritage: DaughterS Memories Of Louis Bromfield
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Louis Bromfield, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, established one of the most significant homesteads in Ohio on his Malabar Farm. Today it receives thousands of visitors a year from all over the world; once the site of the wedding of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, it was a successful prototype of experimental and conservation farming.This lively, outspoken, and affectionate memoir preserves all things Louis Bromfield fought for or against in a life marked by surging vitality and gusto. He came from an Ohio family whose roots were in the land before the land was lost. He had his father''s love of the land, and from his willful mother a hunger to know the world. From the New York City of theaters, concerts, parties, and novels, and a life in France that his success allowed, he finally returned to Ohio and established a new order for his family and friends, and for his followers, a new orbit into which they were drawn.Ellen Bromfield Geld wrote a memoir of the man who was Louis Bromfield, father and friend, tyrant and “Boss,” alive always to whatever was worth responding to in people and in places, yet complex and lonely as a writer must essentially be to work at his craft. Now revived in paperback thirty-five years after its first publication, The Heritage remains a moving tribute and the recreation of a remarkable human being.

An Archive of Feelings: Trauma, Sexuality, and Lesbian Public Cultures

Product : An Archive of Feelings: Trauma, Sexuality, and Lesbian Public Cultures
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In this bold new work of cultural criticism, Ann Cvetkovich develops a queer approach to trauma. She argues for the importance of recognizing--and archiving--accounts of trauma that belong as much to the ordinary and everyday as to the domain of catastrophe. An Archive of Feelings contends that the field of trauma studies, limited by too strict a division between the public and the private, has overlooked the experiences of women and queers. Rejecting the pathologizing understandings of trauma that permeate medical and clinical discourses on the subject, Cvetkovich develops instead a sex-positive approach missing even from most feminist work on trauma. She challenges the field to engage more fully with sexual trauma and the wide range of feelings in its vicinity, including those associated with butch-femme sex and aids activism and caretaking. An Archive of Feelings brings together oral histories from lesbian activists involved in act up/New York; readings of literature by Dorothy Allison, Leslie Feinberg, Cherrie Moraga, and Shani Mootoo; videos by Jean Carlomusto and Pratibha Parmar; and performances by Lisa Kron, Carmelita Tropicana, and the bands Le Tigre and Tribe 8. Cvetkovich reveals how activism, performance, and literature give rise to public cultures that work through trauma and transform the conditions producing it. By looking closely at connections between sexuality, trauma, and the creation of lesbian public cultures, Cvetkovich makes those experiences that have been pushed to the peripheries of trauma culture the defining principles of a new construction of sexual trauma--one in which trauma catalyzes the creation of cultural archives and politicalcommunities.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Long acclaimed by Latin American critics, the Argentine novelist Manuel Puig became best known in this country for his novel Kiss of the Spider Woman.

Readings of each of Puig’s novels combined with Lavers’s overview of the criticism in Spanish provide new insights into one of the most original and profound bodies of fiction of any current writer.

Hiking to History: A Guide to Off-Road New Mexico Historic Sites

Product : Hiking to History: A Guide to Off-Road New Mexico Historic Sites
Category : Books>Travel
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : With more than 13,000 years of human habitation, New Mexico offers a wealth of historic sites located on vast tracts of land well off the beaten path. As author Robert Julyan observes, not much history has been made from a speeding car, and locations that have to be reached on foot are almost always less altered by parking lots, visitor centers, roadways, or traffic noise. Written for both outdoor enthusiasts and vicarious travelers, Hiking to History describes the historical significance behind these publically accessible sites and includes GPS coordinates to enable readers to find each place. Ranging from the state?s principal Civil War battlefield at Glorieta to the dirt road where a broken wagon wheel led two young artists to settle in Taos in 1898, the scenes provide an up-close experience of the state?s remarkable past.

The Five Senses: A Philosophy of Mingled Bodies

Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Available for the first time in English! Winner of the Prix M?dicis Essai! Marginalized by the scientific age with its metaphysical and philosophical systems, the lessons of the senses have been overtaken by the dominance of language and the information revolution. Exploring the deleterious effects of the systematic downgrading of the senses in Western philosophy, Michel Serres - a member of the Acad?mie Fran?aise and one of France''s leading philosophers - traces a topology of human perception. Writing against the Cartesian tradition and in praise of empiricism, he demonstrates repeatedly, and lyrically, the sterility of systems of knowledge divorced from bodily experience. The fragile empirical world, long resistant to our attempts to contain and catalog it, is disappearing beneath the relentless accumulations of late capitalist society and information technology. Data has replaced sensory pleasure, we are less interested in the taste of a fine wine than in the description on the bottle''s label. What are we, and what do we really know, when we have forgotten that our senses can describe a taste more accurately than language ever could?

Product : GLOBAL CHURCH: Reshaping Our Conversations, Renewing Our Mission, Revitalizing Our Ch
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Christianity seems to be in decline in the West. But many churches in Asia, Africa, Latin America and other parts of the Majority World are growing rapidly. Western Christianity can no longer claim to be the center of the global church. Before long, two-thirds of Christians will live in Asia, Africa and Latin America. What does this mean for global Christian mission? What does it mean for worship, theology, faith and evangelism in the West? In GlobalChurch, Graham Hill engages with more than one hundred high-profile Majority World Christian leaders to find out what they can teach the West about mission, leadership, hospitality, creation care, education, worship and more. He challenges the Western church to move away from a Eurocentric and Americentric view of church and mission, and he calls the church to construct global missional conversations. The future of the global church and mdash;including the churches of the West and mdash;exists in these global exchanges. GlobalChurch is an indispensible guide for the church as it navigates the unique global experiences of the twenty-first century.

Description : Germans to America provides both genealogists and researchers of family history with the first extensive, indexed source of German-surname immigrants who came to all ports in the United States between 1850 and 1893.

Ships that departed from German ports or carried passengers who declared themselves to be of German origin are included, with full name, age, sex, occupation, and, when this information is given, country, province or village of origin provided for each emigrant.

Dean Rusk: Defending the American Mission Abroad

Product : Dean Rusk: Defending the American Mission Abroad
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Dean Rusk compared his position as secretary of state in the 1960s to a soldier in a foxhole, defending America against the communist alliance. Author Thomas W. Zeiler writes that the foxhole really represented the universalist ideals Rusk cherished, beliefs that were overrun by the Cold War, by the realism of the two presidents he served, and ultimately by the Vietnam War. With an eye closely on Rusk''s liberal internationalism, Dean Rusk uses the secretary of state as a foil to explain to students the accomplishments of United States leadership in the world and the pitfalls the nation encountered due to the tensions between realpolitik and liberal ideology. Through the career of Rusk, the book reflects on the uses and abuses of predominant power in diplomacy, and interprets well-known events and issues in the comparative framework of idealism and realism. In explaining Rusk''s policies and decisions, it also analyzes the evolving uses and interpretations of Wilsonianism, the major ideology shaping twentieth-century American diplomacy. Dean Rusk follows the course of the Cold War, the defining international conflict of the last 50 years.

Description : The contributions in this volume make an important effort to resurrect a rather old fashioned form of foundationalism. They defend the position that there are some beliefs that are justified, and are not themselves justified by any further beliefs. This Epistemic foundationalism has been the subject of rigorous attack by a wide range of theorists in recent years, leading to the impression that foundationalism is a thing of the past. DePaul argues that it is precisely the volume and virulence of the assaults which points directly to the strength and coherence of the position.

Mark Ryden:  The Gay '90s

Product : Mark Ryden: The Gay '90s
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Celebrated Pop Surrealist artist Mark Ryden’s newest body of work, presented in this book for the first time. Crowned the high prince of Lowbrow, Mark Ryden has become a fixture of the contemporary alternative art movement. In his newest work, Mark Ryden: The Gay 90’s, the artist casts his skewed perspective toward the turn of the nineteenth century with such creepy yet beautiful works as a portrait of Abraham Lincoln dressed in foppish 1890s fashion and surrounded with a heavenly nimbus, Jesus Christ playing a pink piano for an audience of kewpie triplet girls, and a Gibson girl in a tight corset constructed entirely of meat. With masterful painting technique and disquieting content, Ryden’s newest paintings display his fascination with the earnest kitsch found in popular art of the end of the 1800s, yet reinforces how his paintings now more than ever are a skewering of both historical and current pop cultural touchstones. Ryden’s visual cues range from cryptic to cute, balancing his compositions between nostalgic cliché and disturbing archetype. This book showcases his talent for creating paintings that marry accessibility and technique with visceral resonance and sociocultural relevance, making it easy to see why he garners the ardent attention of museums, critics, and serious collectors alike.

Frocking Life: Searching For Elsa Schiaparelli

Product : Frocking Life: Searching For Elsa Schiaparelli
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : At an early age, BillyBoy* chose two mentors: Bugs Bunny and Elsa Schiaparelli. From Bugs Bunny, he learned the basics of how to behave in society and how to manage life’s wicked turns; to be coy, smart, witty, and to always dress appropriately with the assurance of Beau Brummell. But most of all, his cartoon mentor taught him a lighthearted approach to life, and an entertaining charm that is to personality what humor is to good conversation. From Schiaparelli, who he discovered at age fourteen through a very strange hat in a Paris flea market, he learned the meanings of love and art. His human mentor opened doors that he “never even dreamed existed,” as the title character says to her nephew in Auntie Mame. As Schiap turned into a genuine passion, she became a golden thread that led to all sorts of discoveries, encounters, and inspirations over the next forty years. A wealthy orphan with a glamorous but complicated background, BillyBoy* adopted the legendary designer as a guardian angel of sorts, and has spent a lifetime searching for her, through her clothes.   Inspired by Shocking Life, Schiaparelli''s own memoir, FROCKING LIFE will resonate with anyone who loves fashion and flamboyant storytelling. Built around some of the most iconic pieces ever created by the designer, this book is about endless discoveries, and the meaning that can be transmitted, across decades, by a simple piece of clothing. Peopled by dazzling characters from Schiaparelli''s own inner circle and the worlds of art and fashion— Saint Laurent, Vreeland, Warhol to name a few—this is a scintillating yet profound homage to a woman who saw life as art, and inspired a young boy to do the same.    BillyBoy* has always been a strange fruit and it must be said, not everyone could have a bite of it. The press adored him since he was, as author Edmund White wrote, “good copy.” In fact, his thrilling journey through fashion, culture, and art are deeply tied to what he wore for each occasion.  One day, it is a skintight silver lamé studded outfit by Nudie Cohen (the designer of Elvis Presley’s elaborate ensembles), which was originally made for David Cassidy. For a tea with the Begum Aga Khan at the Ritz, he played the part of the dandy in a conservative suit with impeccable tie, topped by a Vivienne Westwood/Malcolm McClaren Buffalo hat adorned with a silk lettuce leaf. For an interview at home with German Vogue, he transformed into a sex kitten in hot pants and an Yves Saint Laurent sheer blouse. This book is both BillyBoy*''s personal story of his intense spiritual and metaphysical journey through life, and also his authoritative insight into the life and work of Elsa Schiaparelli who became such an influence on him.   As an historian and collector, his close examination of the milieu of European and American, Scandinavian and Asian high fashion and his detailed research into Schiaparelli''s haute couture seasonal collections (and her vast number of licensed fashion and accessories) will appeal not only to fashionistas and haute couture devotees and collectors. It explores their relationship to her era, through the many friendships and relationships with the iconic people in fashion he forged over four decades. Anecdotes of varied stars in all aspects of culture will interest those who study 20th-century art and history.

John Currin

Product : John Currin
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Along with an insightful new essay, this beautiful book features over forty-five striking color reproductions of John Currin’s most recent paintings, spanning from 2011 to 2015. At once highly seductive and deeply perplexing, John Currin’s paintings draw inspiration from such disparate areas as Old Master portraits, pinups, pornography, and B-movies. Consistent throughout his oeuvre, however, is his search for the point at which the beautiful and the grotesque hold each other in perfect balance, and this new book from Gagosian Gallery demonstrates just that. In his most recent work, Currin layers each canvas with multiple scenes, creating paintings within paintings. He paints idealized yet challengingly perverse images of women, from lusty nymphs and dour matrons to more ethereal feminine prototypes. While his eroticized subjects often exist at odds with the popular dialogue and politics of contemporary art, they entice viewers, and are reproduced here in stunning detail.
