About this Item: National Museum of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 1960. Wraps. Bentley, Winnifred K. (illustrator). 2d edition. [8], 111, [1] p. illus. 25 cm. Map Cat. No. R93-141. From Wikipedia: "Diamond Jenness, CC (February 10, 1886, Wellington, New Zealand November 29, 1969, Chelsea, Quebec, Canada) was one of Canada's greatest early scientists and a pioneer of Canadian anthropology. He graduated from Victoria University College of New Zealand (B.A. 1907; M.A. 1908), and Balliol College, Oxford University (Diploma in Anthropology, 1910; B.A. 1911; M.A. 1916). From 1911 to 1912 he was Oxford Scholar in eastern Papua-New Guinea, studying a little-known group of aboriginal people. He then served as an ethnologist with the Canadian Arctic Expedition from 1913 to 1916 under the leadership of both Vilhjalmur Stefansson and Dr. Rudolph M. Anderson. His detailed studies of the Copper Inuit around Coronation Gulf, and of other Arctic native people, helped establish him. Although most of his time thereafter was devoted to Indian studies (and administrative duties), he soon identified two very important prehistoric Eskimo cultures: the Dorset in Canada (in 1925) and the Old Bering Sea culture in Alaska (in 1926), for which he later was named "Father of Eskimo Archaeology." In 1926, Jenness succeeded Canada's first Chief Anthropologist, Dr. Edward Sapir, as Chief of Anthropology at the National Museum of Canada, a position he retained until his retirement in 1948. During the intervening years, although hampered by the Great Depression and World War II, he sought to expand the National Museum's exhibits, anthropological collections, and reputation, as well as to improve the recognition, understanding, and living conditions of Canada's native peoples. In 1941, eager to contribute to the war effort, he was seconded to the Royal Canadian Air Force, where he served until 1944 as civilian Deputy Director of Special Intelligence. In 1944 he was made Chief of a newly established Inter-Services Topographic Department in the Canadian Department of National Defence, the non-military section of which in 1947 became the Geographic Bureau and subsequently the Geographic Branch in the Department of Mines and Resources. He retired in April 1948. Between 1920 and 1970, Jenness authored more than 100 works on Canada's Inuit and First Nations people. Chief among these are his scholarly government report, "Life of the Copper Eskimos" (published 1922), his ever-popular account of two years with the Copper Inuit, "The People of the Twilight" (published 1928), his definitive and durable "The Indians of Canada" (published 1932 and now in its seventh edition), and four scholarly reports on Eskimo Administration in Alaska, Canada, Labrador, and Greenland, plus a fifth report providing an analysis and overview of the four government systems (published between 1962 and 1968). He also published a popular account of the one year (1913 to 1914) he spent among the Inupiat of Northern Alaska, "Dawn in Arctic Alaska" (published 1957 and 1985). In 1962, Jenness was awarded the Massey Medal by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and in 1968 he was made a Companion of the Order of Canada. Between 1935 and 1968, he was awarded five honorary doctorate degrees. In 1978 the Canadian Government named the middle peninsula on the west coast of Victoria Island for him, and in 2004 his name was used for a rock examined by the Mars exploration rover Opportunity. Nansi Swayze published a brief popular account about Jenness' life in The Man Hunters (1960). Barnett Richling has, since 1989, published several scholarly articles on various aspects of Jenness' life. "In Twilight and in Dawn: A Biography of Diamond Jenness" written by Barnett Richling was published in 2012 by McGill-Queen's University Press. During the year of 1913 Diamond Jenness was asked to join the government-funded Canadian Arctic Expedition that was lead by two arctic explorers-Vilhjalmur Stefannsson and R.M. Anderson. He would be one of the two ethnologists onboard; the other was Henri Beuchat. In June of that year Jenness boarded th. Seller Inventory # 67756

About this Item: National Geographic, Washington, DC, 2006. Hardcover. PResumed first edition/first printing. 448 p. Illustrations. Recounts twenty of the war's most significant battles in lively, detailed prose. Illustrated with exhaustive battlefield maps and fascinating historical images. Published in conjunction with the 140th anniversary of the end of the Civil War. From Wikipedia: "Edwin Cole Bearss.born June 26, 1923), a United States Marine Corps veteran of World War II, is a military historian and author known for his work on the American Civil War and World War II eras and is a popular tour guide of historic battlefields. He served as Chief Historian of the National Park Service from 1981 to 1994.Bearss used the G.I. Bill to finance his education at Georgetown University, from which he obtained a B.S. degree in Foreign Service studies in 1949. He worked for three years in the United States Navy Hydrographic Office in Maryland and used his spare time to visit numerous Civil War battlefields in the East. He received his M.A. in history from Indiana University in 1955, writing his thesis on Confederate General Patrick Cleburne. As part of his research, he visited the Western Theater battlefields on which Cleburne fought, telling friends, "You can't describe a battlefield unless you walk it." In February 2005, Lincoln College awarded Bearss an honorary doctorate, and in May 2010, Gettysburg College awarded him an honorary doctorate of humane letters. On the battlefield of Shiloh in 1954, he made a career decision inspired by the park historian he met, Charles E. (Pete) Shedd: interpretation of battles in the field was far more interesting than the academic study of history in an office. Although attracted to a National Park Service career, he first joined the Office of the Chief of Military History, U.S. Army, but soon took work as an historian at Vicksburg National Military Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi. It was at Vicksburg that he met his wife, Margie Riddle Bearss (1925 2006), also a Civil War historian; they were married on July 30, 1958. They first lived in the Leila Luckett House in Vicksburg formerly occupied by then-Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's soldiers in 1863, and eventually had three children: Sara Beth, Edwin Cole, Jr., and Mary Virginia (Jenny). At Vicksburg, Bearss did the research leading him and two friends to the long-lost Union gunboat U.S.S. Cairo. He also located two forgotten forts at Grand Gulf, Mississippi. He was promoted in 1958 to Southeast regional historian, working out of Vicksburg, but he spent the majority of his time on the road, visiting virtually every battlefield in the country. As popular interest in the Civil War increased with the centennial celebrations starting in 1961, Bearss was recognized as more knowledgeable on the battlefields than virtually anyone else and he was enlisted to develop a variety of new parks, including Pea Ridge and Wilson's Creek. During his long NPS career, he also led efforts in Fort Smith; Stones River, Fort Donelson; battlefields around Richmond, Bighorn Canyon; the Eisenhower Farm at Gettysburg; the gold miners' route over Chilkoot Pass; President Lyndon B. Johnson's Ranch; Fort Moultrie; Fort Point; William Howard Taft House; Fort Hancock at the Boston Navy Yard; and the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. In 1966 Bearss was transferred to Washington, D.C. On November 1, 1981, he was named Chief Historian of the National Park Service, a position he held until 1994. From 1994 to 1995 he served as special assistant to the director. After his retirement in 1995, he received the title Chief Historian Emeritus, which he holds to this day. In 1972 Bearss became a founding member of the Board of Advisors of Sea Research Society and participated in the creation of its College of Marine Arts. He was active in the Society's efforts to raise the wreck of the Civil War submarine Hunley, which had been found off Charleston, South Carolina, in 1970.Bearss started interpretative touring as part of his official duties in Vicksburg, leading eight one-hour tours a day.

About this Item: de.MO, 2008. Paperback. Condition: Near fine. First Edition, First Printing. de.MO, 2008. Softcover in clamshell box. First Edition, First Printing. 104 pags with numerous color photographic images throughout. BOOK CONDITION: Fine, a tight, clean copy housed in a Very Good + clamshell case with moderate rubbing, soiling and wear, especially along edges and corners. In November 2002, war photographer Christopher Anderson had a chance encounter with a Holga, a plastic toy camera manufactured in China. Expecting it to be nothing more than a game, Anderson quickly found a kind of freedom with the plastic camera that differed greatly from his usual work as a war photographer."My work requires a certain intellectual engagement in trying to visually communicate information both literal and emotional. But I found something very different with this camera. Because it’s a toy, I couldn’t control it the way I normally would. I couldn’t take pictures that were the result of an engaged thought process, because it was physically impossible with this camera," explains Anderson. Instead, he found himself reacting and taking pictures in a much more instinctive way. "The pictures that I was taking were free of meaning or message and were much more revealing about how I reacted to scenes that I encountered while going about my life," he adds.Anderson used the plastic camera for a period of eight months, and his photographs were guided solely by emotion and intuition.The softcover book, containing a collection of 54 images, is housed in a colorful box that makes the perfect accessory for any coffee table.Christopher Anderson was born in Canada in 1970. He has produced pictures for many of the world’s most highly regarded publications. His work has documented many conflicts and social issues, such as the Afghan refugee crisis and the plight of Haitian immigrants sailing to America. He is a contract photographer for U.S. News & World Report and regular contributor to The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic Adventure.Anderson has received the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the Visa d’Or in Perpignan, the Kodak Young Photographer of the Year Award and the Picture of the Year Award.

About this Item: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Printing. 25 cm, 463, [1] pages. Illustrations. Index. Damp stains and wrinkling in bottom margin (no pages stuck). Inscribed by the author. The author has won the Pulitzer Prize, the George Polk Memorial Award, and at least three Sigma Delta Chi awards. Peter Gregg Arnett, ONZM (born 13 November 1934) is a New Zealand-born journalist holding both New Zealand and US citizenship. Arnett worked for National Geographic magazine, and later for various television networks, most notably CNN. He is known for his coverage the Vietnam War and the Gulf War. He was awarded the 1966 Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting for his work in Vietnam from 1962 to 1975, mostly reporting for the Associated Press. CNN CNN sent Arnett to Baghdad because of his experience in covering military conflicts. Arnett was part of the live coverage beginning on January 17th, 1991, the start of the Gulf War air campaign, where he and colleagues Bernard Shaw and John Holliman kept broadcasting from their Al-Rasheed Hotel room amid extensive aerial bombing by the Western Coalition forces. In 1994, Arnett's book Live from the Battlefield: From Vietnam to Baghdad, 35 Years in the World's War Zones was published. In March 1997, Arnett interviewed Osama bin Laden. The journalism school at the Southern Institute of Technology that was named after him closed in 2015. He retired as a field reporter in 2007. He now lives in Los Angeles and teaches journalism at Shantou University in China. Derived from a Kirkus review: A renowned newsman's absorbing, anecdotal account of his experiences as a foreign correspondent. Here he focuses on his lengthy stint with the AP in Southeast Asia's combat zones, as well as on his more visible sojourn as CNN's man in Baghdad at the height of Desert Storm. The New Zealand-born author, 59, was first assigned to Vietnam in mid-1962. His front-line reportage on America's involvement there often infuriated the US military and their Washington masters, earned him a Pulitzer--and the respect of his professional peers (Malcolm Browne, Horst Faas, David Halberstam, et al.). Posted to the AP's Manhattan headquarters in 1970, Arnett returned to Vietnam frequently, filing dispatches with a variety of datelines--Hanoi, Hue, and even Saigon weeks after its fall to the Communists. Casting his lot in 1981 with the fledgling CNN, Arnett learned the TV trade on the job, in such hot spots as Afghanistan, Beirut, El Salvador, Moscow, and Panama. Heading once again toward the sound of the guns, the author (who became an American citizen following his tour in the Soviet Union) slipped into Iraq days before the US-led coalition unleashed a savage aerial assault on its capital city. Although his under-fire broadcasts from the al-Rashid Hotel, a lengthy interview with Saddam Hussein, and follow-up reports on civilian casualties gained him enemies in official circles, Arnett's on-air exposure made him a star with the viewing public. Here, in offering his side of this story, he provides compelling reminders that journalism is indeed a calling that does free people a service whose value is often beyond reckoning. An engrossing memoir--complete with perceptive commentary on colleagues and contemporary notables. Seller Inventory # 25289

Peter Gregg Arnett, ONZM (born 13 November 1934) is a New Zealand-born journalist holding both New Zealand and US citizenship. Arnett worked for National Geographic magazine, and later for various television networks, most notably CNN. He is known for his coverage the Vietnam War and the Gulf War. He was awarded the 1966 Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting for his work in Vietnam from 1962 to 1975, mostly reporting for the Associated Press. CNN CNN sent Arnett to Baghdad because of his experience in covering military conflicts. Arnett was part of the live coverage beginning on January 17th, 1991, the start of the Gulf War air campaign, where he and colleagues Bernard Shaw and John Holliman kept broadcasting from their Al-Rasheed Hotel room amid extensive aerial bombing by the Western Coalition forces. In 1994, Arnett's book Live from the Battlefield: From Vietnam to Baghdad, 35 Years in the World's War Zones was published. In March 1997, Arnett interviewed Osama bin Laden.
