We Are What We Pretend To Be
Kurt Vonnegut, author
With special commentary from Nanette Vonnegut
Da Capo Press
c/o Perseus Books Group
11 Cambridge Center
Cambridge, MA 02142
9780306822780 $12.99

Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) is one of the quintessential twentieth-century American writers, perhaps best known for his classic novels "Slaughterhouse Five" and "Breakfast of Champions". We Are What We Pretend To Be presents two of Vonnegut's little-known works: his unpublished first novella, "Basic Training" (a quasi-autobiographical story about a young man struggling to adapt to life on an Indiana farm, despite unrequited love and an oppressive patriarchal hierarchy), and his unfinished last novel, "If God Were Alive Today" (a sharply satirical work in which dependence on fossil fuels has provoked an apocalypse of Biblical proportions). An introduction by Vonnegut's daughter rounds out this "must-read" for fans, connoisseurs, and literary students of Vonnegut's classic works. Highly recommended for personal, public library, and college literature library collections.

Defending The History Of Economic Thought
Steven Kates
Edward Elgar Publishing

A 160 page treatise, "Defending The History Of Economic Thought" is organized and presented in five major chapters (Preliminary thoughts; Why study the history of economic thought; Debating the role of the history of economic thought; Teaching the history of economic thought; and Defending the history of economic thought. As informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, "Defending The History Of Economic Thought" is enhanced with an bibliography and a comprehensive index, making it an impressive contribution to professional and academic library Economic Studies collections and supplemental reading lists.

Hospice care is a type and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill or seriously ill patient's pain and symptoms, and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs. The concept of hospice has been evolving since the 11th century. Then, and for centuries thereafter, hospices were places of hospitality for the sick, wounded, or dying, as well as those for travelers and pilgrims. The modern concept of hospice includes palliative care for the incurably ill given in such institutions as hospitals or nursing homes, but also care provided to those who would rather spend their last months and days of life in their own homes. Compiled by editorial team of Paul Bramadat (Director of the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society, University of Victoria), Harold Coward Professor Emeritus of History, University of Victoria), and Kelli I. Stajduhar (Associate Professor, School of Nursing and Centre on Aging, University of Victoria), "Spirituality in Hospice Palliative Care" is a 214 page compendium comprised of eight seminal contributions from diverse academic disciplines and perspectives on the spiritual aspects of hospice care for those who do not easily fit within the traditional religious beliefs and categories. as informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, "Spirituality In Hospice Palliative Care" is a welcome and highly recommended contribution to professional and academic library Religious/Spirituality Studies and Health/Medicine Hospice Care reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

9780806317786, $18.95,

One of the little known facets of American colonial history is that those colonies weren't all populated by people fleeing England in search of religious freedom and economic opportunity. The need for labor was so intense that England's jails, workhouses, brothels, and 'houses of correction' were emptied out and their inhabitants forcibly shipped to America to work out their sentences as indentured servants and convicted felons. "Emigrants in Chains. a Social History of the Forced Emigration to the Americas of Felons, Destitute Children, Political and Religious Non-Conformists, Vagabonds, Beggars and Other Undesirables: 1607-1776" by Peter Wilson Coldham is a 198 page compendium that provides an informed and informative history of how this came about and the impact it had on colonial society.

One of our country's 'Founding Fathers' and the third president of the United States (1801-1809), Thomas Jefferson was also a renowned bibliophile who bought his English translation of the Qur'an in 1765, some eleven years before he wrote the Declaration of Independence (1776). It was his study of Islam that helped to confirm his insistence that America should be a country of religious freedom with no state imposed or sanctioned Christianity holding sway over any other religious belief systems. "Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an: Islam and the Founders" by Denise A. Spellberg (Associate Professor of History and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Texas, Austin) is a 416 page compendium that is an extraordinarily well written, researched, and seminal work that should be considered mandatory reading for anyone who believes America was founded to be a Christian nation to the denigration or exclusion of all other belief systems including Islam.

Remembering the Revolution: Memory, History, and Nation Making from Independence to the Civil War is an anthology of essays by learned authors about the Revolutionary War as interpreted by the first three generations of American citizens. The history and memory of the Revolution quickly became thoroughly politicized; different and often conflicting interests sought to tap into popular reverence for the nation's founding to serve their own goals. No single faction gained complete dominance over the Revolutionary War narrative; indeed, America remained sharply divided as a whole, heralding the rift of the Civil War. Individual writings in "Remembering the Revolution" include "Plagiarism in Pursuit of Historical Truth", "Martyred Blood and Avenging Spirits: Revolutionary Martyers and Heroes as Inspiration for the U.S. Civil War", "Forgotten Founder: Revolutionary Memory and John Dickenson's Reputation", and much more. A welcome contribution to public and college library American History shelves.

Carbondale, IL 62901
9780809333103 $34.50

The Long Shadow of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address commemorates the sesquicentennial anniversary of President Licoln's historic Civil War speech with an examination of its legacy - not only the words themselves, but how people chose to interpret them at the time, and in the decades that followed. Lincoln's speech placed eloquent emphasis on the indissoulable connection between equality and democracy, yet his words were often selectively quoted to conveniently leave that message out. Chapters draw upon historical records to examine responses to the Gettysburg Address in 1863, wartime usages of the Gettysburg Address, its relevance to the Civil Rights movement in the 1960's and much more. The Long Shadow of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is an excellent and welcome addition to public and college library American History shelves.

Concise Lincoln Library series
Southern Illinois University Press
1915 University Press Drive
SIUC Mail Code 6806
Carbondale, IL 62901

Two books in the Concise Lincoln Library series examine how America's President during the Civil War shaped the course of national history. John David Smith's "Lincoln and the Colored Troops" (9780809332908) examines President Lincoln's invitation to feed slaves and free persons of color to join the U.S. Army as part of the U.S. Colored Troops - the first systematic effort of the American government to arm African-Americans for the sake of national defense. Lincoln's bold decision was nothing less than revolutionary for the era, though African-Americans who served will still plagued by discrimination. Racial prejudice also played a key role in notorious massacres on both sides, when Confederate soldiers executed African-American troops rather than honor prisoner of war conventions - and African-American troops responded in kind. 2012 Lincoln Prize winner William C. Harris' "Lincoln and the Union Governors" (9780809332885) studies the fine balancing act Lincoln followed between accommodating the different needs of various Union governors, and maintaining a concentrated war effort. Of particular note is the historic Altoona Conference, also called The Loyal War Governors' Conference, in which thirteen Union governors discussed state troop quotas, the Emancipations Proclamation, and ultimate support for the President. Yet as the war dragged on, it placed ever greater strains on the President's relationship with the Union governors, and the Union's eventual triumph ultimately heralded even greater political challenges. Both volumes are aptly researched and eloquently presented, and choice picks for public or college library American History collections.

Featuring vintage black-and-white as well as full-color photography throughout - over 200 photographs total, including many previously unpublished images from Bletchley Park's archives - The Lost World of Bletchley Park: An Illustrated History of the Wartime Codebreaking Centre lives up to its title as the definitive history of the Buckinghamshire codebreaking centre that achieved the nigh-unimaginable accomplishment of cracking the German Enigma codes. Their achievement had a crucial, possibly even decisive impact on the course of World War Two. Even before the war, Bletchley Park was a fashionable location for intellectuals, engineers, and the noblest of aristocratic traditions, as the holding of Liberal MP Sir Herbert Leon. After the war, Bletchley Park was first abandoned, then eventually transformed into a thriving museum and testament to British ingenuity and resilience. The Lost World of Bletchley Park not only covers the famous personages and codebreakers of the park, but also day-to-day life in Bletchley as a wartime town. An extensively researched visual as well as informational treasury, The Lost World of Bletchley Park is highly recommended, particularly for public and college library world history collections.

Chapters address the political economy of slavery - including the "deadweight loss" the South inflicted upon itself, by mandating a system that conscripted virtually every able-bodied white man (the majority of whom were poor people who owned no slaves) into "slave patrols" that enforced slavery laws, and devalued the productive ability of the slaves themselves through overwork, maltreatment, and laws that forbid slaves to read or write. The overview continues with the emergence of the Republican party, the beginnings of conflict, the horrific cost of total war, the politics of Reconstruction, and much more. Accessible to readers of all backgrounds, Emancipating Slaves, Enslaving Free Men is highly recommended not only for public and college library collections, but also for any lay reader interested in gaining a solid understanding of the Civil War from economic, political, social, and military perspectives.

9781576472392, $48.00,

Franz Peter Schubert (31 January 1797 - 19 November 1828) was an Austrian composer. In a short lifespan of less than 32 years, Schubert was a prolific composer, writing some 600 Lieder, ten complete or nearly complete symphonies (including the most famous of the incomplete ones, the "Unfinished Symphony"), liturgical music, operas, incidental music and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Appreciation of his music while he was alive was limited to a relatively small circle of admirers in Vienna, but interest in his work increased significantly in the decades immediately after his death. Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms, along with other lesser lights, discovered and championed his works through the remainder of the century. Today, Schubert is ranked among the greatest composers of the early Romantic era and, as such, is one of the most frequently performed composers of the early nineteenth century. Schubert composed some 500 dances, of which about 200 were published in his lifetime. "Schubert's Dances: For Family, Friends and Posterity" by Martin Chusid is a 294 page compendium that provides an informed, informative, and long overdue study of this aspect of Schubert's compositional career. Of special note is the epilogue "Schumann, Liszt, and Brahms on Schubert and His Dances". Enhanced with a glossary of terms, a list of Schuberts dances, an extensive bibliography, and indices, "Schubert's Dances: For Family, Friends and Posterity" is an impressive and seminal work of scholarship, making it an extraordinary addition to academic library and collegiate musical department reference collections in general and Schubert Studies supplemental study reading lists in particular.

The Birth of Tragedy is the unabridged audiobook rendition of the classic treatise by famous philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), first published in 1872 as "The Birth of Tragedy out of the Spirit of Music". It was Nietzsche's first notable publication, yet poorly received by his contemporaries. At the time, Nietzsche was a professor of classical philology (the study of language in written historical sources); in The Birth of Tragedy, he contemplated the Apollonian and Dionysian elements of classical Athenian tragedy, viewing ancient plays as an art form that rose above the fundamental hopelessness, meaninglessness, and nihilism that surrounds life. Nietzsche saw the Greeks as battling with eternal pessimism, and saw an opportunity to recreate the emotional catharsis of their great works through current art forms such as Richard Wagner's operas. Now in a new translations by Ian Johnston, The Birth of Tragedy includes Nietzsche's 1871 "Preface to Richard Wagner" as well as the original book. The Birth of Tragedy remains a fascinating contribution to philosophy shelves, and is especially recommended for public and college library audiobook collections. 5 CDs, 6 hours 5 min.

Abraham "Bram" Stoker (8 November 1847 - 20 April 1912) was an Irish novelist and short story writer, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. Although his novel "Dracula" is his best known work today, Stoker was a prolific writer who wrote a number of other chilling tales of suspense. Under the expert readership of Rupert Degas, nine of those stories have been collected in a 5 CD audio book edition. These anthologized stories include The Judge's house; The Squaw; The Secret of the Growing Gold; The Gypsy Prophecy; The Coming of Abel Behenna; The Burial of the Rats; A Dream of Red hands and Crooked Sands; and the title piece, Dracula's Guest. With its superb production values and total running time of 5 hours, 41 minutes, 36 seconds, "Dracula's Guest and other Stories" is pure entertainment and a highly recommended addition to personal and community library audio book collections!

BBC economics editor and senior advisor to the U.S. Treasury secretary Setphanie Flanders presents Masters of Money, a documentary examining the lives and ideas of three prominent economic theorists, whose concepts (and reactions against them) have had a profound effect on modern history: John Maynard Keynes, Friedrich Hayek, and Karl Marx. Each man held sharply disparate, often flatly contradicting beliefs. At the close of World War I, Keynes resigned a prestigious position in disgust when the Allies opted to economically punish Germany with burdensome reparations. Keynes correctly predicted that nothing good would come of the vengeful reparation demands, which caused runaway German hyperinflation, and ultimately kindled a crisis that fueled Adolf Hitler's rise to power. Furthermore, Keynes evaluated the Great Depression as a negative spiral - as more workers lost their jobs, they had less money to spend, which lowered demand, which caused more layoffs, and so on - that only government spending and/or job creation could reverse. Austrian-born Friedrich Hayek held a much more conservative view, believing that government attempts to alleviate recessions and depressions would only make them worse. In particular, he warned against artificially keeping interest rates low via the Federal Reserve, arguing that such a distortion would only fuel artificial bubbles and make their busts even more painful. (However, Hayek did believe in the need for safety nets). Karl Marx is remembered as the economist who inspired Communism; what is less known is that he had many good things to say about capitalism. However, Marx predicted that capitalism was ultimately doomed because bosses always forced the wages of workers ever lower, meaning that the workers could afford to buy less, eventually prompting recessions and depressions until widespread misery sparked revolution. What would each of these great thinkers say today, in response to the global economic crisis of 2009? And what lessons can be drawn from how their ideas shaped history, for good or for ill? Enlightening, accessible, and abstaining from blatant value judgments - the viewer is left to ponder the political and moral dimensions of each economic philosophy for themselves - Masters of Money is highly recommended, especially for public and college library DVD collections. 3 DVDs, 149 min. plus bonus shorts and 12-page viewer's guide, SDH subtitles, widescreen.

Licensed for public performance, Hot Coffee: Is Justice Being Served? is a cautionary documentary about the notorious legal case that supposedly embodied "frivolous" lawsuits - or did it? Just why did the case of spilled hot coffee from a McDonald's drive-through - which caused the plaintiff severe burns, excruciating pain, and an expensive hospital stay - spark so much media scrutiny and anti-lawsuit hostility? Who benefits most from "tort reform"? Hot Coffee follows four people embroiled in four different court cases, and questions whether "jackpot justice" is truly as great a threat as the power wielded by corporate entities with access to the best lawyers that money can buy. Bonus material includes five short extra segments, and a discussion guide on the DVD-ROM part of the disc. Both the 86 and 50-minute versions are on one DVD, with SDH captions.

Licensed for public performance, La Camioneta is a true-life documentary about transportation, hardships, and criminal gangs in Guatemala. Decommissioned American school buses are regularly sent to Guatemala, where they are repaired, painted bright colors, and used as "camionetas" to carry the majority of Guatemalans to work. But operating a camioneta is dangerous business; local Guatemalan gangs ruthlessly extort protection money, and nearly 1,000 camioneta drivers and fare collectors have been murdered since 2006 for being unwilling or unable to pay. La Camioneta follows a single bus on the journey from serving American schoolchildren to serving the Guatemalan workforce, and offers an unforgettable glimpse into humanity's daily struggles. Highly recommended. Both a 72-minute and a 52-minute classroom version are present on the same DVD; English & Spanish languages; closed captioned.

Future Food is a six-part DVD series that grapples with a pressing question - how is the world to feed a global population projected to be nine billion by the year 2050? The search for answers takes the viewer worldwide, to six different nations. "Old or New?" surveys Peru, a land gradually recovering from the murderous depredations of the Shining Path terrorist organization. Great chefs and agricultural scientists warn against neglecting old wisdom and traditional methods of agriculture, since modern agriculture is dependent on fossil fuels that will eventually run out. "Food or Fuel?" is set in Kenya, a land with a history of famine; can cultivating biofuels be justified when the nation cannot grow enough food for its own people? Perhaps so, if the biofuels are grown specifically on "marginal lands" that are hostile to traditional food crops. Could the biofuel plant jatropha, which thrives in arid conditions, bring a better life to subsistence farmers on marginal lands? "Big or Small?" explores how agribusiness has come to dominate the USA; is "going big" truly the best way to farm food for the next generation? "Fat or Skinny?" confronts a dilemma facing India - as Western-style fast food diets spread, so does obesity, and the health problems such diets are linked to. The best answers may lie in healthy, indigenous alternatives to food selection and preparation. "Near or Far?" examines why the Nigerian Minister of Agriculture wants Nigerians to eat locally grown food, and the economic, social, and health ramifications. "Stay or Go?" travels to China, where young people are leaving the countryside for the allure of the cities; as more and more of them migrate, who will stay and grow food? All programs are thought-provoking and educational, with a strong emphasis on sustainability, and excellent choices for high school, college, and public library DVD collections. 6 DVDs, approx. 29 min. each.

Navy Medical Department historian Jan K. Herman presents The Lucky Few: The Fall of Saigon and the Rescue Mission of the USS Kirk, a heavily researched accounting of one U.S. Navy warship, the USS Kirk, that worked with a task force of U.S. Navy ships to aid the evacuation of not only American embassy personnel, but also 32,000 South Vietnamese refugees at the close of the Vietnam War. Amid the chaos of a crumbling defeat, the USS Kirk and other ships like her underwent a stunning transformation to carry out a large-scale humanitarian mission, including giving medical care, accommodating infants, and calming people's fears. Notes and an index round out this highly recommended contribution to American military and naval history shelves, particularly those with a focus on the Vietnam War. (Jan K. Herman has also produced an hour-long documentary in 2010 titled "The Lucky Few", but his book is innately capable exploring the USS Kirk's story in far more detail).

"Charles A.A. Dellschau" is an extraordinary, oversized hardcover artbook showcasing the works of Prussian-American, self-taught visionary artist Charles Dellschau (1830-1923) in full color. Dellschau's personal project of creating an illustrated manuscript about his experience in the California Gold Rush evolved into a collection of twelve, hard-bound books filled with more than 2,500 drawings imagining airships and the development of flight, before such things were reality. After Dellschau's death, the books were nearly destroyed by a fire, and saved from the garbage heap almost by chance when a junk dealer discovered them. Some have been displayed by museums, others kept by private collectors; this captivating artbook is the first monograph of Dellschau's life work, enhanced with essays from art writers, scholars, curators, and Tom D. Crouch of the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of Air and Space. An absolute "must-have" for anyone intrigued by the inspirational artworks of the American counterpart to Jules Verne (who wrote science fiction about submarines decades before they were invented), "Charles A.A. Dellschau" is highly recommended, especially for public library artbook collections.

Also available in ebook format, Ecosystem Services for Sustainability examines different ways in which humankind can protect dwindling natural resources and ecosystem services - the bounty of nature that provides goods (such as drinking water from glaciers, or timber from forests), stabilize climate or water quality, offer recreational and aesthetic benefits (such as national parks), or natural processes that support the other services (such as photosynthesis and nutrient cycling). Since no one method for sustainability can cover all the needs of seven billion human beings, Ecosystem Services for Sustainability discusses a wealth of options: aquifers, the Clean Air Act, coastal management, permaculture, nutrient and biogeochemical cycling, and much more. "Using microorganisms to treat waste or pollution is called bioremediation, and understanding how microbial processes work is crucial to its success. For instance, certain organisms can be encouraged to grow by providing more or less oxygen, by adding nutrients, or by simply adding the desired organism to a contaminated soil." Economic as well as environmental impact is weighed at every turn, in this thoroughly accessible resource, written help students, professionals, and lay people alike understand the many options to maintain a flourishing, sustainable planet.

Out of Print: Newspapers, Journalism and the Business of News in the Digital Age examines the past, present, and future of the journalism and periodical industry. A brief survey of journalism's history and evolution leads toward modern transformations that are forcing people to rethink how journalism can be accomplished, both ethically and profitably. As newspaper and magazine subscriptions crumble and website hits rise, the growing ubiquity of digital technology demands a change in business models. "This does not mean that 'print' will die. It means that the business model for daily newspapers is in trouble and that trouble is most acute for general-interest newspapers. What applies to the time-sensitive, advertising-dependent economics of newspapers does not automatically apply to books, directories or magazines. All supply different demands in different ways." Out of Print also examines multiple recent scandals that have been undermining journalistic credibility, notably the phone-hacking scandal that blackened the reputation of Rupert Murdoch's media empire. The pros and cons of possible future revenue sources are also weighed, from digital "paywalls" (which tend to be effective only for online publications with specific data that people crave and that cannot be easily replicated, such as sports statistics), to advertising-dependent models, to philanthropic giving, to public funding or tacit governmental support. Out of Print is a "must-read" for anyone in today's journalism or periodical industries, and is worthy of the highest recommendation for public or college library Media Studies shelves.
