Synopsis:
The third book in the Baker History of the Church series explores the development of the church during the medieval period, covering the years AD 600 - 1450.  In the first two volumes of the Baker History of the Church, readers found an accessible but authoritative series that shed light on the roots of their faith and the foundations of the church. The Medieval Church, the third volume of the series, covers the years AD 600 - 1450.  While the term "Middle Ages" limits the true scope of the church in this time period, Paul M. Bassett discusses the various expressions of faith in the sixth and seventh centuries and offers careful examination of the events that affected the medieval church.  His comprehensive account offers a lively history of Christianity from the final collapse of the Roman Empire to the first shocks of the Reformation.

Synopsis:
This groundbreaking account of Scotland’s diaspora is a fascinating study in character and identity.  Over the years, millions of native Scots have left their home country, yet they have been written about only in general terms. Scottish Exodus breaks new ground by taking a set of emigrants by the name of MacLeod and, with the help of their descendants, investigates exactly what happened to them.  These MacLeods began as Scots, but became French aristocrats, Polish resistance fighters, Irish priests, Texan ranchers, New Zealand shepherds, Australian gold miners, Aboriginal activists and Nova Scotian farmers.  One nineteenth-century MacLeod even swapped his Gaelic for Arabic, and his Christianity for Islam before settling down comfortably in Cairo.  Based on unpublished documents, letters and family histories, and on the author’s travels in the company of today’s MacLeods — some of them still in Scotland, others in the United States, Australia, Canada, England, Poland, France, New Zealand and South Africa — Scottish Exodus is a tale of horror and hardship, disastrous voyages and the hazards of pioneering on faraway frontiers.  But it is also the moving story of how people separated from Scotland by hundreds of years and thousands of miles continue to identify with the small country where their global journeys began.

Synopsis:
As direct descendants of the great courtier-poets Fujiwara no Shunzei (1114-1204) and his son Teika (1162-1244), the heirs of the noble Reizei house can claim an unbroken literary lineage that spans over eight-hundred years.  During all that time, their primary goal has been to sustain the poetic enterprise, or michi (way), of the house and to safeguard its literary assets, which include secret teachings, ritual practices, works of art, and a treasure of trove of manuscripts that has only been available for study by scholars since the mid-1980s.  Steven D. Carter weaves together strands of family history, literary criticism, and historical research into a coherent narrative about the transmission and evolution of the Reizei Way from generation to generation, beginning with its genesis in the late Heian period and ending with the Reizei House as it still directs poetic activities today in the family residence--recently restored--on Imadegawa Avenue in Kyoto.  What emerges from this innovative approach is an elegant portrait of the Reizei poets as participants in a collective institution devoted more to the continuity of family poetic practices and ideals than to the concept of individual expression that is so central to more modern poetic culture.  In addition to the narrative chapters, the book also features an extensive appendix of one hundred poems from over the centuries, by poets who were affiliated with the Reizei house.  Carter's annotations provide essential critical context for this selection of poems, and his deft translations underscore the rich contributions of the Reizei family and their many disciples to the Japanese poetic tradition.

Synopsis:
Ben W. McClelland is a professor of English and holder of the Schillig Chair of English Composition at the University of Mississippi.


          "In December 1944 First Lieutenant Ewing R. "Pete" McClelland was captured in the Battle of the Bulge.  Soon afterwards he was killed when the Allies bombed the German POW camp where he was held."  "Back home in Pennsylvania, his young widow and three small children survived him.  Too young to have lasting recollections, Ben W. McClelland, the soldier's son who was just beyond infancy, became one of the war's fatherless innocents for whom the memories of others would form the paternal image."  "As the boy evolved into manhood, he reflected on how strange it was to grow up without this parent.  In this narrative, a work of analysis as well as an odyssey into family heritage, the son undertakes a compelling search to find this man he could not remember.  Through sentiment and nostalgia he depicts the innocence of childhood and recalls the many people who furnished impressions of his father."  "Old photographs, intimate letters, and interviews with the memory keepers and the storytellers in his extended family were resources from which the author recreated a time and a place and a person.  This reconstruction resurrects a father vital in life and passion, a man chronicled in humorous family tales, realized among vivid small-town characters, and seen against the contrast of social changes of the 1960s."  "The search for his father consumed most of a lifetime.  As Ben W. McClelland was approaching the age of sixty, he had recovered this lost, never-before-realized identity.  But to complete the circle of his quest, he undertook one thing more, the emotional pilgrimage to his father's grave in Europe." --BOOK JACKET.

Synopsis: A study of the British Atlantic World through a case study of the plantation-owning Lascelles.

          From the mid-seventeenth century to the 1830s, successful gentry capitalists created an extensive business empire centered on slavery in the West Indies, but inter-linked with North America, Africa, and Europe.  S. D. Smith examines the formation of this British Atlantic World from the perspective of Yorkshire aristocratic families who invested in the West Indies.  At the heart of the book lies a case study of the plantation-owning Lascelles and the commercial and cultural network they created with their associates.  The Lascelles exhibited high levels of business innovation and were accomplished risk-takers, overcoming daunting obstacles to make fortunes out of the New World.  Dr Smith shows how the family raised themselves first to super-merchant status and then to aristocratic pre-eminence.  He also explores the tragic consequences for enslaved Africans with chapters devoted to the slave populations and interracial relations.  This widely-researched book sheds new light on the networks and the culture of imperialism.

SCRAPBOOKS

Synopsis:
Genealogist Laura Best follows up her well-received Genealogy for the First Time (reg); with a colorful volume dedicated to techniques for preserving precious ancestral memories through scrapbooking. Scrapbooking can be more than just a craft: it can become a window into important family history. Use those vintage photos, uncovered documents, and newly-found family stories to create scrapbooked family trees and pedigree charts, eight generation treatments, depictions of holidays and family reunions through the years, and histories of family homesteads. Inscribe notes on ancestors' occupations and hobbies, anecdotes, celebrations, and sad moments: every memory worth passing on to children, grandchildren, and generations to come. The page designs all draw on color schemes and images common to various time periods, and there are also techniques for displaying the scrapbooked material in shadow boxes and frames.

Synopsis:
A renowned German novelist's memoir of his brother, who joined the SS and was killed at the Russian front. Uwe Timm was only two years old when in 1942 his older brother, Karl Heinz, announced to his family he had volunteered for service with an elite squadron of the German army, the SS Totenkopf Division, also known as Death's Heads. Little more than a year later Karl Heinz was injured in battle at the Russian front, his legs amputated, and a few weeks after that he died in a military hospital. To their father, Karl Heinz's death only served to immortalize him as the courageous one, the obedient one, the one who upheld the family honor. His childhood was marked by the mythology of his brother's lost life; his absence-the hole he left in the family-just as palpable as if he were still alive. His mother's sadness and his father's rage over the loss of Karl Heinz ultimately defined Uwe's relationship with his parents. But while they eulogized the boy, Uwe wondered: who really had his brother been? The life and death of his older brother has haunted Uwe Timm for more than sixty years. His parents' silence was one of the most painful aspects of his family history. Not even after the war ended, and details of unspeakable horrors emerged, did his parents ever acknowledge Germany's guilt and Karl Heinz's role in it. They simply said: We didn't know. After the deaths of his parents and older sister Timm set out in search of answers. Using military reports, letters, family photos and cryptic entries from a diary his brother kept during the war, he began to piece together the picture, discovering his brother's story is not just that of one man, but the tragedy of an entire generation. In the Shadow of My Brother is a meditation on German history and guilt, one that is both nuanced and measured.

Synopsis:
Immediately after the Holocaust, it seemed inconceivable that a Jewish community would rebuild in Germany. What was once unimaginable has now come to pass: Germany is home to one of Europe's most dynamic Jewish communities, and it has the fastest growing Jewish immigrant population of any country in the world outside Israel. By sharing the life stories of members of one Jewish family-the Kalmans-Y. Michal Bodemann provides an intimate look at what it is like to live as a Jew in Germany today. Having survived concentration camps in Poland, four Kalman siblings-three brothers and a sister-were left stranded in Germany after the war. They built new lives and a major enterprise; they each married and had children. Over the past fifteen years Bodemann conducted extensive interviews with the Kalmans, mostly with the survivors' ten children, who were born between 1948 and 1964. In these oral histories, he shares their thoughts on Judaism, work, family, and community. Staying in Germany is not a given; four of the ten cousins live in Israel and the United States. Among the Kalman cousins are an art gallery owner, a body builder, a radio personality, a former chief financial officer of a prominent U.S. bank, and a sculptor. They discuss Zionism, anti-Semitism, what it means to root for the German soccer team, Schindler's List, money, success, marriage and intermarriage, and family history. They reveal their different levels of engagement with Judaism and involvement with local Jewish communities. Kalman is a pseudonym, and this anonymity allows the family members to talk with passion and candor about their relationships and their lives as Jews.

The German Jewish community was decimated after Hitler came to power in 1933, reduced from 600,000 to less than 10,000 by the end of WWII. Now, there are well over 100,000 Jews in Germany, and the number continues to increase. Bodemann, a sociology professor at the University of Toronto, has written one book (Out of the Ashes) and edited another (Jews, Germans, Memory) dealing with contemporary German Jewry. His new book approaches the same subject by examining the experiences of one Jewish family consisting of four concentration camp survivors and their ten children. The one female survivor and her husband moved to the United States with their young son, who went on to become a successful financial analyst with little relationship to his cousins. The male survivors remained in Germany, where they established a large kitchen appliance business. Three cousins moved to Israel, and the rest remained in Germany, where Bodemann began interviewing them in 1990. Although the stories have considerable human interest, they represent raw data that require interpretation and analysis. Bodemann gives verbatim accounts of the interviews without regard to the repetitious content. Readers will come away frustrated if they seek clear answers to the questions of why Jews remain in Germany and why so many are attracted to the land that once fostered Nazism. (Jan.)

Metcalf skillfully uses the history of one frontier region to illuminate the history of southern Brazil. . . . She masterfully links her region to the general growth and development of the Portuguese colony thereby demonstrating the strengths which local history, case study, demography, and quantitative techniques can make. This is an outstanding contribution to frontier history, family history, and the social history of rural zones."--Americas" Metcalf's excellent, carefully researched case study of rural life in colonial Portuguese Latin America analyzes the process of family adaptation to a changing agricultural frontier in what is now the prosperous state of Saõ Paulo. . . . The book should interest not only students of Brazilian history but all those concerned with such themes as slavery in the Western hemisphere, the role of women, men, and children in a changing frontier society, and the fate of indigenous populations."--Choice". . . meticulously researched, pioneering work . . . The importance of Professor Metcalf's description and analysis of family and society transcends Santana de Parnaíba in the colonial era, adding more tessera to the mosaic of the economies and societies of Portuguese America and providing an excellent historical framework for an understanding of modern Brazil."--Ethnohistory Family and Frontier in Colonial Brazil was originally published by the University of California Press in 1992.

Metcalf's excellent, carefully researched case study of rural life in colonial Portuguese Latin America analyzes the process of family adaptation to a changing agricultural frontier in what is now the prosperous state of S~ao Paulo. The emphasis is on the inheritance of cultural attitudes and economic resources amidst the struggle for family survival. Metcalf examines in depth the issue of race, the role of colonial government, the origins of social class, families of planters, and families of slaves. The study is based on manuscript censuses and uses sophisticated statistical analysis. Handsomely printed and admirably illustrated, the book should interest not only students of Brazilian history but all those concerned with such themes as slavery in the Western hemisphere, the role of women, men, and children in a changing frontier society, and the fate of indigenous populations. This book complements nicely Dain Borges's recently published study, The Family in Bahia, Brazil, 1870-1945 (1992) although the latter book focuses on a later period. Graduate; faculty. R. M.

Synopsis:
Central to this historical and comparative perspective on family business are the reasons for its decline and persistence, how it evolved historically, the different forms it has taken over time and how it has contributed to the growth of single economies.

          "In this new textbook, Andrea Colli gives a historical and comparative perspective on family business, examining through time the different relationships within family businesses and among family enterprises, inside different political and institutional contexts. He compares the performance of family businesses with that of other economic organisations, and looks at how these enterprises have contributed to the evolution of contemporary industrial capitalism. Central to his discussion are the reasons for both the decline and persistence of family business, how it evolved historically, the different forms it has taken over time, and how it has contributed to the growth of single economies. The book summarises previous research into family business, and situates many aspects of family business - such as their strategies, contribution, failure, and decline - in an economic, social, political, and institutional context. It will be of key interest to students of economic history and business studies."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Synopsis:
Cindy Weinstein radically revises our understanding of nineteenth-century sentimental literature. Arguing that these novels are far more complex than critics have suggested, Weinstein expands the archive of sentimental novels to include some of the more popular, though under-examined writers, and shows how canonical texts can take on new meaning when read in the context of these novels. She demonstrates the aesthetic and political complexities of this influential genre and its impact on Stowe, Twain and Melville.

It explores all aspects of child welfare services, including juvenile delinquency, youth justice, foster care, adoption, residential care, and child abuse. These services are a unique form of social welfare which has little in common with the benefits and pensions which characterise other areas of New Zealand's welfare state." "By using government policy documents and personal case files, Bronwyn Dalley combines an analysis of child welfare policy with an examination of its effects on children and families."--BOOK JACKET.

Synopsis:
Combines the popular interests of genealogy and bookmaking Researching family history is the second most popular topic on the Internet (after sex).  With more than 4 billion records online today and more becoming available everyday, the Internet is fueling the growth of this popular hobby by simplifying the process of finding information and connecting with individuals who share a common branch in their family tree.  This unique book combines the general surge of interest in genealogy with the popularity of memory crafts and book and journal making.  The projects featured encompass many mixed-media techniques and provide beautiful ideas for creating family trees that will become family heirlooms and keepsakes.  Inspiring seasoned journal and memory crafters as well as genealogy buffs, the book divides projects into three styles: family trees designed to be hung as a piece of artwork on a wall, family tree books and journals, and dimensional family trees that take a more sculptural approach.  Each project includes clear and concise directions as well as tips about story-telling, information gathering, and sidebars.  Full-color templates and clip art for various types of family trees are also included.

Synopsis:
This is an accessible and modern guide to the hugely popular art of tracing your family history.  Published to tie in with the BBC2 series, the book is packed with practical guidance on locating records and researching different eras and topics.  It also includes celebrity histories and a directory of the best current Internet resources. Who Do You Think You Are? is a fresh, contemporary take on family history and tracing your family tree.  Suitable for the hobbyist and the more experienced researcher, it incorporates both basic information on tracing your ancestors plus theme-based sections allowing more detailed and focused research to follow up on family stories and characters.  The first section of the book is a concise and comprehensive summary of basic research tools - how to locate and use a range of records and information to track down your family and to provide the framework for more detailed research.  The main part of the book looks at key themes such as social history, occupations, military connections, immigration and emigration, and looking for skeletons in the cupboard (bigamy, illegitimacy, lunacy and crime - far more interesting than tracing your family back to William the Conqueror).  With information, tips and stories about the historical background and law changes of the past, this is a fresh way of approaching family history and developing research into the stories and characters unearthed.  Finally, a comprehensive resources section provides the most up-to-date sources for common themes and localities - with assessments of the best Internet sources for all types of research.  Also featuring celebrity family history stories and lots of extraordinary tales from ordinary people, this book is a fascinating practical guide to this absorbing and intriguing hobby.

Synopsis: Exposing the 'hidden' history of marital violence between the Restoration and the mid-nineteenth century.

          This book exposes the 'hidden' history of marital violence and explores its place in English family life between the Restoration and the mid-nineteenth century. In a time before divorce was easily available and when husbands were popularly believed to have the right to beat their wives, Elizabeth Foyster examines the variety of ways in which men, women and children responded to marital violence. For contemporaries this was an issue that raised central questions about family life: the extent of men's authority over other family members, the limitations of women's property rights, and the problems of access to divorce and child custody.

Synopsis:
Mark D. Herber provides a comprehensive illustrated guide to tracing British ancestry as far back as the Middle Ages.  Chapters include advice on obtaining information from relatives, drawing a family tree, and researching census records.

Library Journal
March 1, 1998 0-8063-1546-6;

Herber's book is billed as "the complete guide to British genealogy and family history," and that is exactly what it is. Thoughtfully designed, this orderly, comprehensive, and elegant work guides the researcher (beginner or advanced) through the entire process of tracing British heritage, from obtaining information from living relatives to drawing family trees and starting research in the birth, marriage, death, or census records.  Later chapters guide researchers to records that are more difficult to find and use, such as wills, parish registers, civil and ecclesiastical court records, poll books, and property records.  Written for practitioners by a practitioner (Herber is a member of the Society of Genealogists in London), this complete, current, and beautiful guide ultimately helps the researcher focus on how the ancestral trail begins and how to form a coherent picture of past generations and their links to the present.  Highly recommended.  Howells's Netting Your Ancestors, on the other hand, is less elegant in delivering its guidance to genealogical research on the Internet.  Nothing that it covers' the selection of hardware and software, getting a direct internet connection, E-mail, mailing lists, and newsgroups' is tied uniquely to genealogical research.  In fact, a good 95 percent of the skills and tools it covers could be gleaned just as effectively from any basic computer book.  This seems to be written as a how-to book' how to get to the author's popular web site.  Not recommended.'

Synopsis:
New York has always been a bellwether for the nation, representing both its brightest ambitions and its darkest fears.  The Restless City is a short, readable history of New York City, from colonial times to the present, showing how the successes and struggles of the city reinforced each other to create a distinctly dynamic, shocking, and therefore influential city.  Organized around conventional time periods, each chapter provides an introduction to the era, followed by four or five mini-essays on different economic, political, social, or cultural conflicts that impacted NYC in that time period.  This would make a great short text for a course on New York history, or on urban history and the development of the American city.

Synopsis:
This is a fascinating and thoroughly researched anthropological and social history of the Chinese city of Quanzhou.  The author reveals insights into imperial Chinese politics, commerce, and public life more generally by adopting a unique analytical framework through a cultural interpretation of a local folklore, the Carp.  This folklore involves three forces: the Carp - representing the city of Quanzhou; the Imperial Net - representing the imperial state; and it's loopholes - representing two tall Buddhist pagodas which pierce the net and allow the carp to escape the grip of imperial power. The author argues that the legend of the Carp performs an interactive drama and conveys a historical truth of local-imperial interrelationship.  He discusses how the Chinese imperial powers attempted to subdue and co-opt the energy of local festivals.  In doing so he provides an exemplary account of the struggle between a vigorous and sometime violent local world of politics and the centralizing/'civilizing' power of the Emperors.  The book is important to the re-understanding of China as well as to empire, civilization and locality.  The research draws on several disciplines to provide rich oral and written historical materials and archaeological findings and will be of interest to an interdisciplinary readership of scholars and students in anthropology, history and Chinese studies.

Synopsis:
This new book chronicles the history of branding in the West and the famous brands of some of the oldest ranches in the country.  Many of the brands these ranches have been using for hundreds of years are instantly recognizable as icons of the American West.  Ranches and cowboys feel a very intense bond to the brand they own or work for—its rich history and tradition instills a powerful sense of pride.  Not only does a brand confirm ownership, it also speaks to the history and sense of place that is so important in the ranching industry.  Stoecklein’s photographs offer a glimpse into the multi-faceted background of some of the first ranches to settle the West.

Synopsis:
The eponymous October 2002 conference that gave birth to this volume was organized with the express goal, say editors Cahill and Tovías (both of the U. of New South Wales, Australia), taking stock of recent research on the indigenous peoples of Latin America and "contrasting the respective experiences of native Mesoamerican and Andean peoples under Spanish colonial rule (1492-1825)."  The papers fall broadly into three areas: the conquest and the creation of colonial culture, the colonial economy and social transformation, and late colonial politics and the process of independence from colonial rule.  Specific topics include the cosmological bases of local power in the Andes during the 16th and 18th centuries; shifting identities in colonial and contemporary Chiapas, Mexico; indigenous production and consumption of cotton in 18th century Chiapas; recent studies on gender relations in colonial native Andean history, and historical and cultural perspective on the 1814 revolution in Cuzco, Peru.  Distributed in the US by ISBS.

Synopsis:
Reveals a unique, little-known aspect of Russian-American relations. Addresses the controversial visit's purpose and its impact Based on records held in Russian and U.S. archives Great friendship existed between the United States and Imperial Russia during the nineteenth century. The Old World Russian autocracy supported the young New World democracy because of the emerging U.S. role as a bulwark against Great Britain's ambitions, in Asia and in the North Pacific Ocean region especially. In fact, when the American Civil War threatened to divide the United States, Russia alone among the European great powers gave no aid or comfort to the seceding states. The surprise 1863 arrival of squadrons of Russian warships and thousands of Russian sailors in New York and San Francisco proved fortuitous, coming when the Union feared British and French intervention on the Confederacy's behalf. C. Douglas Kroll, using both Russian and U.S. documents, investigates why the Russian Pacific Squadron came to San Francisco, a port of departure for California and Nevada gold headed east; what happened during its nearly year-long visit; and how its presence influenced events. Wi th the units of the U.S. Navy's small Pacific Squadron widely dispersed and Confederate commerce raiders on the loose, the Russians' arrival suggested to on-lookers that they intended to defend the Union against interference. Whether actively supporting the Union or training and refitting or both, the Russian officers and sailors endeared themselves to San Francisco's citizens. Parades and balls, as well as dinners hosted by both sides, helped San Franciscans overlook the various differences they had with their Russian visitors. Kroll gives us a thorough examination of the Russians' visit and its social, diplomatic, and military impact.

Synopsis:
 In 1801 the Moravians, a Pietist German-speaking group from Central Europe, founded the Springplace Mission at a site in present-day northwestern Georgia.  The Moravians remained among the Cherokees for more than thirty years, longer than any other Christian group.  John and Anna Rosina Gambold served at the mission from 1805 until Anna’s death in 1821.  The principal author of the diaries, Anna, chronicles the intimate details of Cherokee daily life.  This edition of the diary includes the entire text in translation as well as a critical apparatus, contextual introductory material, and extensive notes.  Rowena McClinton’s translation from German script, an archaic writing convention, makes these primary eyewitness accounts available in English for the first time.  These diaries will be of immense value for understanding Cherokee culture and history during the early nineteenth century and missionary efforts in the South during this time.  McClinton gained unlimited access to the diaries and other supporting documents for the completion of this project, published with the consent of the Moravian Church of the Southern Province.  Volume 1 includes diary entries from 1805–13, a preface, and an introduction.  Volume 2 includes diary entries from 1814–21 and the editor’s epilogue.

Synopsis:
After the collapse of the Romanov dynasty in February 1917, Russia was subject to an eight month experiment in democracy.  Sarah Badcock studies its failure through an exploration of the experiences and motivations of ordinary men and women, urban and rural, military and civilian.  Using previously neglected documents from regional archives, she offers a new history of the revolution as experienced in the two Volga provinces of Nizhegorod and Kazan.  She exposes the confusions and contradictions between political elites and ordinary people and emphasises the role of the latter as political actors.  By looking beyond Petersburg and Moscow, she shows how local concerns, conditions and interests were foremost in shaping how the revolution was received and understood.  She also reveals the ways in which the small group of intellectuals who dominated the high political scene of 1917 had their political alternatives circumscribed by the desires and demands of ordinary people.

Synopsis:
At the close of the American Revolution, Charleston, South Carolina, was the wealthiest city in the new nation, with the highest per-capita wealth among whites and the largest number of enslaved residents. Maurie D. McInnis explores the social, political, and material culture of the city to learn how--and at what human cost--Charleston came to be regarded as one of the most refined cities in antebellum America. While other cities embraced a culture of democracy and egalitarianism, wealthy Charlestonians cherished English notions of aristocracy and refinement, defending slavery as a social good and encouraging the growth of southern nationalism. Members of the city's merchant-planter class held tight to the belief that the clothes they wore, the manners they adopted, and the ways they designed house lots and laid out city streets helped secure their place in social hierarchies of class and race. This pursuit of refinement, McInnis demonstrates, was bound up with their determined efforts to control the city's African American majority. She then examines slave dress, mobility, work spaces, and leisure activities to understand how Charleston slaves negotiated their lives among the whites they served. The textures of lives lived in houses, yards, streets, and public spaces come into dramatic focus in this lavishly illustrated portrait of antebellum Charleston. McInnis's innovative history of the city combines the aspirations of its would-be nobility, the labors of the African slaves who built and tended the town, and the ambitions of its architects, painters, writers, and civic promoters.

Synopsis:
Perhaps no other natural setting has as much literary, spiritual, and environmental significance for Americans as Walden Pond. Some 700,000 people visit the pond annually, and countless others journey to Walden in their mind, to contemplate the man who lived there and what the place means to us today. Here is the first history of the Massachusetts pond Thoreau made famous 150 years ago. W. Barksdale Maynard offers a lively and comprehensive account of Walden Pond from the early nineteenth century to the present. From Thoreau's first visit at age 4 in 1821--"That woodland vision for a long time made the drapery of my dreams"--to today's efforts both to conserve the pond and allow public access, Maynard captures Walden Pond's history and the role it has played in social, cultural, literary, and environmental movements in America. Along the way Maynard details the geography of the pond; Thoreau's and Emerson's experiences of Walden over their lifetimes; the development of the cult of Thoreau and the growth of the pond as a site of literary and spiritual pilgrimages; rock star Don Henley's Walden Woods Project and the much publicized battle to protect the pond from developers in the 1980s; and the vitally important ecological symbol Walden Pond has become today. Exhaustively researched, vividly written, and illustrated with historical photographs and the most detailed maps of Thoreau country yet created, Walden Pond: A History reveals how an ordinary pond has come to be such an extraordinarily inspiring symbol.

Synopsis:
Taking into account the history of the Hollywood movie industry - as well as its greater panorama - this book explains how the whole industry works. It looks beyond the famous names that have made embedded Hollywood into the world's psyche to look at where the real power lies - with 'the money'.

Library Journal
November 15, 2004 0-375-40016-8
While Thomson's latest (after The New Biographical Dictionary of Film: Expanded and Updated) is definitely a history of Hollywood, taking as much of a personal psychosociological approach to the film industry as anything, it is also somewhat of a reflection on what made Southern California "golden" beginning in the 1910s. The author profiles people like Louis B. Mayer, David O. Selznick, and William Mulholland, who facilitated the growth of Los Angeles and was the prototype of the villain in Chinatown-a film to which Thomson frequently alludes. Although the book starts naturally enough with Charlie Chaplin, it is largely nonlinear, which tends to add to the narrative's richness, as do Thomson's frequent perceptive and cogent analyses. The author has synthesized his longtime fascination with cinema into a most readable but challenging work. Not for those expecting a standard overview of Hollywood, this will appeal to readers willing to invest many thought-provoking hours. Recommended for larger collections.-Roy Liebman, California State Univ., Los Angeles Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

November 15, 2004 0-375-40016-8
Thomson definitely does not belong to the thumbs-up, thumbs-down school of film criticism. While others frantically push and pan the week's overhyped, soon-to-be-forgotten product, Thomson takes a longer view, peeling back the layers of reality, goring sacred cows, correcting misconceptions, and taking pains to reveal those moments when others, following John Ford's Liberty Valance dictum, have preferred to print the legend. Hence this book, characterized as a history of Hollywood but really a philosophical meditation on the myriad ways the movie industry has inspired and influenced L.A and America, and vice versa. Without resorting to the obscurantist rhetoric of postmodern academics, Thomson deconstructs this complicated, symbiotic relationship. In one chapter, for example, he explodes the long-held belief that Hollywood made L.A. into a boomtown. It was booming, and attracting Hollywood-style hucksters, before the film industry took root in the years preceding World War I. Another chapter begins with an examination of Chinatown that opens out into a discussion of lost water rights, corrupt business practices in early L.A., and how screenwriter Robert Towne lost and struggled to regain the rights to his story and characters. This is history seen through the lens of the movies and movie criticism undergirded with thoughtful research and scholarly reflection. --Jack Helbig Copyright 2004 Booklist

Publishers Weekly

The "whole equation," a phrase borrowed from F. Scott Fitzgerald's unfinished Hollywood novel, The Last Tycoon, refers to the balancing of financial acumen, artistic aspiration and sociological savvy that movie moguls needed to keep Hollywood flourishing during the Depression. It's also what Thomson (The New Biographical Dictionary of Film) aims to achieve in his idiosyncratic chronicle of American filmmaking. He explores personalities (Louis B. Mayer, David O. Selznick) and specific films (von Stroheim's Greed, Spielberg's Jaws) to explain the 20th century's shifting sensibilities. Thomson addresses seminal effects from the last 100 years-from the ramifications of sound and color to the chilling consequences of the McCarthy hearings-to explain the culture of moviemaking. His writing is lyrical, but his pronouncements hyperbolic. (His ire against psychiatry, manifested in a dislike of Method acting, is particularly pronounced; its influence on an acting style, claims Thomson, "could yet destroy a society.") Thomson is considerably frustrated with current films and what he sees as moviegoers' lowered expectations. His melancholy metaphor for survival in Hollywood is the 1974 film Chinatown, where "the lone seeker of truth is told to shut up at the end." This fascinating, sometimes frustrating love letter to Hollywood doesn't shirk from exposing the blemishes on Thomson's inamorata. 23 photos. (Dec. 10) Forecast: Knopf will release an expanded edition of Thomson's Dictionary of Film in November, which could spur additional interest in this title, which will have a 75,000 first printing.

Gr. 3-6. This well-designed book introduces George Washington through a clearly written biographical account of his life and achievements, illustrated with many sharply focused, well-composed photographs and a few reproductions of period paintings and prints. As in Bial's Where Lincoln Walked (1998), most of the color photos show places that the president might recognize if he returned today. These include the banks of the Rappahannock River at Ferry Farm (Washington's boyhood home), his house and farm at Mount Vernon, a reconstruction of Fort Necessity, and several buildings in colonial Williamsburg. An apt quotation from Washington introduces the appended source bibliography, followed by lists of recommended books and places to visit. Succinct biographies of America's first president are not difficult to find, but students and teachers alike will value this book for its unusually vivid photographic record of the sites related to Washington. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2005 Booklist

Synopsis:
"Long-distance father William McKeen watched his son grow up during summers, holidays, and long weekends. Now, with Graham in college, the two take a summer road trip down Highway 61, the legendary road of the blues, from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico." "In cheap motels and smoky bars, with obscure bluesmen and barnstorming guitar heroes, they discover how the highway links rich and poor, black and white. In Minnesota and Iowa, Bill shows his son where he spent boyhood summers with his father, who died a decade before Graham was born. In St. Louis, there's another nostalgic return to a former haunt, a slice of rock-and-roll heaven called Blueberry Hill. In Memphis, they find the genuine, uncommercialized side of the city's legendary music world, and deep in the heart of the Mississippi Delta they stand over the grave of legendary bluesman Charley Patton, listen to the murmur of wind over the cotton fields, and offer silent benediction." "As they venture together through magnificent country, walking the hometown streets of Bob Dylan and Mark Twain, standing at Robert Johnson's haunted crossroads, journeying from the Delta Blues Museum to Doe's Eat Place to the Cafe Atchafalaya of New Orleans, father and son come to realize that they have a permanent connection that can never be broken by age or distance."--BOOK JACKET.

Highway 61 is such an easy road trip for father and son, William and Graham McKeen, that it wouldn't be a surprise if the reader (metaphorically) fell asleep at the wheel. William (editor of Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay) writes with a comfortable cadence, liberally embellishing his narrative with local history and the lives of musicians he reveres. As a divorced and long-distance father, he views the summer journey as a means to connect with his college-student son; fortunately, they share a love of blues and rock'n'roll, which provides a unifying theme for the trip. Beginning in Canada, the pair heads south, following the Mississippi and exploring the hometowns of Bob Dylan and Mark Twain. Near the end of their journey, they search for the burial place of blues legend Robert Johnson (there are three reputed graves in the Delta). Along the way, accommodations are unremarkable, encounters serendipitous, and many sunsets spectacular. Graham provides an eclectic selection of photographs, but the journey lacks a map (although one could easily follow along with an atlas at hand). This is a book for music lovers as well as armchair travelers. Recommended for regional and most public libraries.-Janet Ross, formerly with Sparks Branch Lib., NV Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Booklist

In the summer of 2001, the author and his 18-year-old son piled into a 1997 Ford Explorer (stocked with various supplies, including a staggering number of CDs) and embarked on an unusual odyssey: to travel Highway 61 from its beginning in Thunder Bay, Ontario, to New Orleans, where the legendary road just sort of disappears into the city. Their voyage took them, as the book's subtitle reveals, through the middle of America, through its wide-open spaces, its towns and cities. Highway 61, the author (chairman of the journalism department at the University of Florida) tells us, "connects North and South, industrial and rural, black and white, rich and poor." It also, at least in this case, connected a divorced father and son, bringing them together at a time when the son, now becoming a man, was starting to find his own road and to drift even further away. Father-son memoirs are a dime a dozen; this one, though, separates itself from the pack by looking both inward and outward and finding lots to see in both directions. --David Pitt

Deep, abiding love for music and for his son Graham are twin emotions that emerge with touching clarity in McKeen's literary documentary about traveling through middle America. The book's lack of conflict is immediately evident when McKeen says he and Graham never shared a cross moment. Once readers accept this absence of dramatic tension, they'll be able to enjoy the chronicle as an honest, informative journey. The author capably proves his premise: having an open mind about music, whether it's Johnny Cash, Enya, Tony Bennett or Led Zeppelin, is the only way to gain maximum pleasure from it. McKeen reveres Bob Dylan, and when he and Graham hit Hibbing and Duluth, Minn., readers will gain new insight into Dylan's early years as a performer in a St. Paul pizzeria called the Purple Onion and his abandonment of college after one semester. Visiting Hannibal, Mo., leads to a compelling account of Mark Twain's tragic life. McKeen and son encounter Joe Edwards, who runs the bar Blueberry Hill in a St. Louis suburb and received Cashbox magazine's honor of owner of the best jukebox in America. McKeen is at his best portraying Scott Joplin, who died of syphilis in 1917 and was quoted as saying, "Maybe fifty years after I'm dead my music will be appreciated." Highway 61 itself comes across as a complex, colorful character, whether an open, glorious road or a boring, bumper-to-bumper drive. McKeen ends the book stirringly when he notes that he was "completely shocked to see how segregated this country still is." (Mar.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

Synopsis:
As a companion to Volume 1 (which covered cities, towns and villages), this book covers over 1400 rivers, lakes, mountains and other natural features in the United States with Indian names.

          The legacy of the American Indian is evident throughout the United States in the many places that have Indian names. Countless placenames have, however, been corrupted over time, and numerous placenames have similar spellings but different meanings because of the way they were interpreted by various authorities. As a companion to Volume 1 (2003; covered cities, towns and villages), this book covers over 1400 rivers, lakes, mountains and other natural features in the U.S. with Indian names. The text is arranged by state with the natural features appearing alphabetically.

Synopsis:
In Sleuthing the Alamo, historian James E. Crisp draws back the curtain on years of mythmaking to reveal some surprising truths about the Texas Revolution--truths that are often obscured by both racism and political correctness. This engaging first-person account of historical detective work illuminates the methods of the serious historian who searches for the more complex truths behind the glorious myths. Beginning with a personal prologue recalling both the pride and the prejudices that he encountered in the Texas of his youth, Crisp illustrates how he discovered documents that have been distorted, censored, and ignored. In four chapters focusing on specific documentary "finds," he uncovers the clues that led to these archival discoveries. Along the way, the cast of characters expands to include: a prominent historian who tried to walk away from his first book; an unlikely teenaged "speechwriter" for General Sam Houston; three eyewitnesses to the death of Davy Crockett at the Alamo; a desperate inmate of Mexico City's Inquisition Prison, whose scribbled memoir of the war in Texas is now listed in the Guiness Book of World Records; and the stealthy slasher of the most famous historical painting in Texas. In his afterword, Crisp explores the evidence behind the mythic "Yellow Rose of Texas" and examines some of the powerful forces at work in silencing the voices from the past that we most need to hear today. An indispensable resource for anyone interested in the Alamo or historical detective work, Sleuthing the Alamo is also ideal for undergraduate courses in historical methodology, southwestern borderlands, the American West, Texas history, American expansion, Mexican-American history, race relations, and Southern history.

Native Texan Crisp (history, North Carolina State Univ.) takes the reader along on a step-by-step investigation of several problems related to the Texas revolution: Sam Houston's speech at Refugio, the authenticity of the de la Pena diary, and the circumstances of Davy Crockett's death. The emphasis is not so much on the conclusions reached as on the process used and the paths followed to reach those conclusions. Along the way, Crisp shows why it is important to go back to the original sources, inquires into how and why myth is made, and demonstrates that at times the paint brush is mightier than the pen. As a case study, this engaging book should find a place in undergraduate libraries, but it is also recommended for any library with an interest in the history of Texas and the West.-Stephen H.
