Item Description: University Press of New England, United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On a warm and golden afternoon, October 4, 1960, a Lockheed Electra jet turboprop carrying 72 souls took off from Logan Airport. Seconds later, the plane slammed into a flock of 10,000 starlings, and abruptly plummeted into Winthrop Harbor. The collision took 62 lives and gave rise to the largest rescue mobilization in Boston s history, which included civilians in addition to police, firefighters, skindivers, and Navy and Coast Guard air-sea rescue teams. Largely because of the quick action and good seamanship of Winthrop citizens, many of them boys in small boats, ten passengers survived what the Civil Aeronautics Board termed a non-survivable crash. Using firsthand interviews with survivors of the crash, rescuers, divers, aeronautics experts, and ornithologists, as well as a wide range of primary source material, Kalafatas foregrounds the story of the crash and its aftermath to anchor a broader inquiry into developments in the aeronautics industry, the increase in the number of big birds in the skies of North America, and the increasing danger of bird strikes. Along the way he looks into interesting historical sidelights such as the creation of Logan Airport, the transformation of Boston s industrial base to new technologies, and the nature of journalistic investigations in the early 1960s. The book is a rare instance when an author can simultaneously write about a fascinating historical event and a clear and present danger today. Kalafatas calls for and itemizes solutions that protect both birds and the traveling public. Bookseller Inventory # POW9781584658979

Item Description: Brandeis, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used: Like New. 000-446: INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR MICHAEL KALAFATAS on Front Endpaper. Hardcover with Dustjacket. Denim cloth spine and cream boards with gilt spine lettering. 287 pages. No Defects except for a few tiny wrinkles around edges of jacket from shelf. A beautiful, square, tight copy with clean, unmarked pages. Outstanding Gift Quality. The author found a twenty-two-page epic poem WINTER DREAM, written by his grandfather about the suffering during the Greek sponge divers' transition from the ancient technique of naked diving using a bellstone to the deep-sea diving suit, which resulted in many deaths and cases of paralysis. Using the poem as a guide, Kalafatas traces the historical and cultural contours of this uniquely Greek livelihood, and carries the reader from the Dodecanese Islands in the nineteenth century to Constantinople and the Black Sea as well as to contemporary Tarpon Springs, Florida, and Melbourne, Australia--the far-flung outposts of the Greek sponge-diving diaspora. 8 Pages of Rare Black and White Photographs. 5 4 3 2 1 First Edition, First Printing 2003.

For centuries, young men of the Dodecanese Islands earned their living by diving for sponges. This practice, known as "naked diving," was used until ther deep-sea diving suit was introduced. With the inception of this new technology, sponge divers would go deeper and deeper into the sea to collect their precious finds, but at great risk to their lives. This is not only a nod to the history of sponging, it is also a personal story played out by the author's own family members, who themselves made their living diving for sponges. 287 pages including bibliography and acknowledgements.

Item Description: Brandeis University Press, Waltham, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 308 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. GREECE. Guided by his grandfather's poem about sponge diving, one American returns to Greece to reclaim his past. For centuries, the young men of the Dodecanese Islands, a string of islands in the Aegean Sea between Greece and the coast of Asia Minor, earned their living by diving for sponges. They would descend to the bottom of the sea on just a single breath of air, using as a weight and rudder a flat, marble diving stone called a bellstone. They used this ancient technique of "naked diving" until 1863 when the deep-sea diving suit was introduced into the sponge-fishing industry. The new diving suit (dubbed "Satan's machine" by the divers) allowed the diver to remain under water for long periods of time, increasing his productivity a hundredfold, but it also brought a dramatic change in the physiology of diving. Rather than taking one deep breath, the diver now breathed compressed air, which caused "the bends" if he rose from the depths of the sea too quickly. Pressure from international companies to increase the number of sponges harvested on each dive led to mounting casualties. Between 1866 and 1895, on the island of Kalymnos alone, 800 young men died of the bends and 200 more were paralyzed. Michael N. Kalafatas's grandfather, born on the island of Symi, was eye-witness to these events. In 1995, Kalafatas discovered an epic poem entitled "Winter Dream" written by his grandfather, Metrophanes Kalafatas. The poem, composed a century earlier in Greek, recounts the plight of sponge divers confronted with this new technology. He had the poem rendered into English by award-winning poet, Olga Broumas, and using it as his bellstone, dove into his own past. While tracing the historical and cultural contours of this uniquely Greek livelihood, Kalafatas carries the reader from the Dodecanese Islands in the nineteenth century to Constantinople and the Black Sea as well as to contemporary Tarpon Springs, Florida and Melbourne, AustraliaÑthe far-flung outposts of the Greek sponge-diving diaspora. He portrays the hubris of young sponge divers defying the odds; the passion of their wives and mothers in protesting the new diving suits; the venality of international capitalists intent on maximizing their investments; and the courage of the Dodecanese people in adapting to catastrophic changes beyond their control. The story Kalafatas weaves is deeply personal, as his grandfather's poem leads the author back to Greece. But The Bellstone is more than just a personal story; it is a lamentation for and celebration of the families, history, and culture of the sponge divers of the Dodecanese. Michael N. Kalafatas was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and educated at Brandeis University and at Harvard University. In 1946 and 1947 he lived in the Tarpon Springs area of Florida with his family. He has spent considerable time in the Dodecanese Islands of Greece. For more than twenty years Kalafatas served as director of admissions at Brandeis. He now lives in Wayland, Massachusetts. "What an eye-opener this book isÑand especially for a proud Greek-American who, like Michael Kalafatas, is a son of the Aegean. The saga of the sponge fishermen of the Dodecanese Islands and their contribution to America is a great taleÑand brilliantly told in this very special book."ÑMichael Dukakis Michael N. Kalafatas was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and educated at Brandeis University and at Harvard University. In 1946 and 1947 he lived in the Tarpon Springs area of Florida with his family. He has spent considerable time in the Dodecanese Islands of Greece. For more than twenty years Kalafatas served as director of admissions at Brandeis. He now lives in Wayland, Massachusetts.
