About this Item: Oxford University Press, Oxford and New York, 1999. Paperback. Condition: Very Good. 1st. 288 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio., index; 28 cm. Exhibition held at the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, April 21 to June 27, 1999; San Diego Museum of Art, October 30, 1999 to January 9, 2000; Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska, February 19 to April 30, 2000. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Light shelfwear to wraps, age toning. Another copy available. First paperback edition. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Since the arrival of the Spanish explorers in the sixteenth century, California has been thought of as a land of promise and opportunity. This lavishly illustrated catalog . presents a fascinating cultural history of an idyllic vision of California that still figures prominently in the American imagination. Brought together in one show for the first time, this combination of art is unique in its range from high art to popular representations. Currier and Ives lithographs and the work of early European cartographers are juxtaposed with photographs by Carleton E. Watkins, Arnold Genthe, and Eadweard Muybridge, and paintings by Albert Bierstadt, James Walker, and William Hahn, among others. With one hundred and fifty plates--sixty in full color--Pacific Arcadia illuminates the imagery of the California Dream. Perry investigates how and why this vision of a Pacific paradise was developed and marketed to the public, taking as her subject the images produced by early visitors and residents confronted by the peculiarities of California's landscape, the abundance of its natural resources, and the omnipresence of the vast Pacific. Using paintings, drawings, maps, photographs, newspaper and book illustrations, and printed ephemera dating from the seventeenth century to 1915, Pacific Arcadia examines the ways these images represented California as a place where economic bliss could be attained in a spectacular natural setting. / Claire Perry is curator of American art at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University. She specializes in the cultural history of nineteenth-century America." - Publisher. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Early History of Omaha; Or Walks and Talks Among the Old Settlers The early history of Omaha is to some extent the early history nof Nebraska, and this is true to some degree even in the history of later years. Hence we often hear even now our city referred to, by jealous rivals in our State, as the State of Omaha, and the State as its suburbs. The greater portion of this volume has never before appeared -ih print. Some of it, however, has been published before, but in differ ent shape. My information has been obtained from the very best and most reliable sources - from the old settlers themselves, from the early legislative journals, and from the early newspapers. For valuable assistance and information I am indebted to Hon. A. J. Hanscom, Hon. A. J. Poppleton, Gen. Estabrook, A. D. Jones, Esq., Byron Reed, Esq., Dr. Miller, John A. Creighton, John T. Bell, Mr. And Mrs. W. P. Snowden, Mrs. W. D. Brown, Judge Porter, Martin Dunham, Thomas Riley, Maj. Armstrong and many other prominent old settlers.

About this Item: INGRAM PUBLISHER SERVICES US, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In a federal courtroom in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1879, Standing Bear, clan chief of the small and peaceful Ponca tribe, was in court demanding the same basic right that white Americans enjoyed-the right to be recognized legally as a human being. The compelling, behind-the-scenes story of that landmark court case, and the subsequent reverberations of the judge s ruling across nineteenth-century America is told in Stephen Dando-Collin s brisk and evocative account ( Kirkus ). It is a story of memorable Old West characters who joined to fight for Standing Bear and paved his way to the courthouse-the former Indian-fighting Army general who changed sides to stand with Standing Bear, the crusading Midwestern newspaper editor who had once been a gun-toting frontier preacher, and the most beautiful Indian maiden of her time, Bright Eyes. Full of colourful characters, battles of legal wits, and the twists and turns of a cause in search of an audience, Standing Bear Is a Person is a captivating read.

I saw one of your articles around 2009 on Nigeriaworld. com and I got stuck. Youve been able to explain what I could not explain in words. Most of what you write about I perceive in my environment, but could articulate and dissect it well. I got invited to an Exegetical Church around that time, you and a combination of other factors have greatly influence my re-orientation. Thanks for taking time to teach us and expose the truth.

Firm binding, clean inside copy. First paperback edition. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Since the arrival of the Spanish explorers in the sixteenth century, California has been thought of as a land of promise and opportunity. This lavishly illustrated catalog . presents a fascinating cultural history of an idyllic vision of California that still figures prominently in the American imagination. Brought together in one show for the first time, this combination of art is unique in its range from high art to popular representations. Currier and Ives lithographs and the work of early European cartographers are juxtaposed with photographs by Carleton E. Watkins, Arnold Genthe, and Eadweard Muybridge, and paintings by Albert Bierstadt, James Walker, and William Hahn, among others. With one hundred and fifty plates--sixty in full color--Pacific Arcadia illuminates the imagery of the California Dream. Perry investigates how and why this vision of a Pacific paradise was developed and marketed to the public, taking as her subject the images produced by early visitors and residents confronted by the peculiarities of California's landscape, the abundance of its natural resources, and the omnipresence of the vast Pacific. Using paintings, drawings, maps, photographs, newspaper and book illustrations, and printed ephemera dating from the seventeenth century to 1915, Pacific Arcadia examines the ways these images represented California as a place where economic bliss could be attained in a spectacular natural setting. / Claire Perry is curator of American art at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University. She specializes in the cultural history of nineteenth-century America." - Publisher. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book is the first of its kind, a racial history of the Omaha Public Schools, the largest school district in the state of Nebraska. It is also a sociological treatise aimed at exposing and analyzing the systemic racism and attendant discriminatory actions that have long been a part of that history. In a state and a city where embellishment, camouflage, educational distortion and outright lies have long been a tradition, and where the major newspaper aids and abets the system in its manipulated manifestations of reality, this book should be viewed with the same intensity as was demonstrated when the system had the hypocritical temerity to order 8,000 cultural proficiency manuals that, to date, have not taught the staff, faculty or administration a damn thing about cultural competency or the reality of race relations. This book is therefore tailored for the Omaha Public Schools. This is not one of those generic, abstract write-a-document-so-we-can-get-paid-type approaches that the OPS has grown accustomed to. As a long-time defender of black people in North Omaha and as a master educator I believe that, Where much is known, much is required. I also believe what Malcolm X taught long ago when he said, Of all our studies, history is best qualified to reward our research. The old folks further teach that, the truth shall set you free. The Omaha Public Schools has been so steeped in the lies of its administration, its Board of Education and its teachers that condemnation of those lies and correction of them is therefore mandatory. Even though the entire state of Nebraska, from the near genocidal relocation of the First Nation people to its on-going abuse and residential segregation of Blacks and Latinos, there remains a fear by white decision makers to sanely address issues of race. Instead, fake programs, tenuous projects and grant-generating claims to helping the poor are what the city s tradition is filled with. From the pre-schools to the community college and the universities (Creighton and the University of Nebraska Omaha), the most intelligent people in the city remain abysmally ignorant and have a history of commiting one stupid act after another while thinking they are progressive. The decision makers anoint and appoint buffoons to represent the communities of color who serve as rubber stamps for one failed program after another. To study a system and its institutions with a laser focus is more productive than those working in that system than all the cultural proficiency manuals ever produced. The latter written by outsiders and consisting of euphemism and quotes from scholars that OPS leadership never heard of. The former, a viable contribution to a racist system s own understanding of its past, present and future. Seller Inventory # APC9781979200059

About this Item: Da Capo Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 288 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.8in.In a federal courtroom in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1879, Standing Bear, clan chief of the small and peaceful Ponca tribe, was in court demanding the same basic right that white Americans enjoyed-the right to be recognized legally as a human being. The compelling, behind-the-scenes story of that landmark court case, and the subsequent reverberations of the judges ruling across nineteenth-century America is told in Stephen Dando-Collins brisk and evocative account (Kirkus). It is a story of memorable Old West characters who joined to fight for Standing Bear and paved his way to the courthouse-the former Indian-fighting Army general who changed sides to stand with Standing Bear, the crusading Midwestern newspaper editor who had once been a gun-toting frontier preacher, and the most beautiful Indian maiden of her time, Bright Eyes. Full of colorful characters, battles of legal wits, and the twists and turns of a cause in search of an audience, Standing Bear Is a Person is a captivating read.

About this Item: Sunbury Press, Inc., United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Sam Richards was more than likely Nebraska s first serial killer. Among his many victims were a mother and her three children who were savagely beaten to death. In 1879, Richards was hung for his crimes in Kearney County, Nebraska, and his skull eventually placed on display in the window of the local newspaper. George Morgan was a pedophile who raped and then choked an eleven year old to death on November 3, 1895 in Omaha. Morgan was hung in Douglas County, Nebraska in 1897. From 1867, when Nebraska became a state, until 1897, fourteen convicted killers were condemned to their fate on a gallows erected in county jail yards across the state. Thirteen of these doomed men died at the hands of a county sheriff and one was executed by a United States Marshal. This book looks at all fourteen of these cases. They represent the workings of Nebraska s criminal justice system in the late nineteenth century, and the men that made it work. Seller Inventory # APC9781620063361

The shut-down of Omaha, Nebraska s Franklin Community Federal Credit Union, raided by federal agencies in November 1988, sent shock waves all the way to Washington, D.C. $40 million was missing. The credit union s manager: Republican Party activist Lawrence E. Larry King, Jr., behind whose rise to fame and riches stood powerful figures in Nebraska politics and business, and in the nation s capital. In the face of opposition from local and state law enforcement, from the FBI, and from the powerful Omaha World-Herald newspaper, a special Franklin committee of the Nebraska Legislature launched its own probe. What looked like a financial swindle, soon exploded into a hideous tale of drugs, Iran-Contra money-laundering, a nationwide child abuse ring, and ritual murder. Nineteen months later, the legislative committee s chief investigator died - suddenly, and violently, like more than a dozen other people linked to the Franklin case. Author John DeCamp knows the Franklin scandal from the inside. In 1990, his DeCamp memo first publicly named the alleged high-ranking abusers. Today, he is attorney for two of the abuse victims. Using documentation never before made public, DeCamp lays bare not only the crimes, but the cover-up - a textbook case of how dangerous the corruption of institutions of government, and the press, can be. In its sweep and in what it portends for the nation, the Franklin cover-up followed the ugly precedent of the Warren Commission. Seller Inventory # APC9780963215802

About this Item: University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In 1887 a twenty-one-year-old newspaperman named George Nellis (1865-1948) rode a bicycle from Herkimer, New York, to San Francisco in seventy-two days, surpassing the transcontinental bicycle record by several weeks. He averaged fifty miles a day pedalling a fifty-two-inch, high-wheeled Columbia Expert ordinary bicycle with a tubular steel frame and hard rubber tires, and he lost twenty-three pounds in the process. He bicycled ever westward through sleepy villages, farmlands, and growing cities of the rapidly changing nation and trekked across uninhabited stretches of prairies and mountains that marked its shrinking frontier. Following his daily ten-hour rides, Nellis sat down and wrote letters about his adventures to his hometown newspapers and a national cycling magazine to finance his cross-country journey.Nellis s epic journey over dirt paths, muddy roads, and occasional railroad ties was plagued by terrible weather, frightening experiences, and odd encounters; yet it was also enriched by breathtaking natural wonders and the generous spirit of many people he met. He nearly drowned in a flash flood, was chased by a furious bull, killed a coyote that accosted him one night, fell victim to mirages in Utah s Great Salt Desert, narrowly missed a tremendous fire that wiped out half of a California town only hours after he had left, and witnessed a horrifying accident on a train track. Nellis also managed to meet the legendary baseball player A. G. Spalding in Chicago, take in professional baseball games in Detroit and Chicago, participate in several bicycle races in Omaha, attend an opera in Cheyenne, Wyoming, enjoy a circus, and eat over two dozen bananas in one sitting in Osceola, Indiana.Drawing on Nellis s letters and media coverage of the trip, Kevin J. Hayes recreates in compelling detail this amazing trip and the many ordinary and extraordinary faces of late-nineteenth-century America that were once revealed to a young bicyclist.

Larry King, Jr., behind whose rise to fame and riches stood powerful figures in Nebraska politics and business, and in the nation s capital. In the face of opposition from local and state law enforcement, from the FBI, and from the powerful Omaha World-Herald newspaper, a special Franklin committee of the Nebraska Legislature launched its own probe. What looked like a financial swindle, soon exploded into a hideous tale of drugs, Iran-Contra money-laundering, a nationwide child abuse ring, and ritual murder. Nineteen months later, the legislative committee s chief investigator died - suddenly, and violently, like more than a dozen other people linked to the Franklin case. Author John DeCamp knows the Franklin scandal from the inside. In 1990, his DeCamp memo first publicly named the alleged high-ranking abusers. Today, he is attorney for two of the abuse victims. Using documentation never before made public, DeCamp lays bare not only the crimes, but the cover-up - a textbook case of how dangerous the corruption of institutions of government, and the press, can be. In its sweep and in what it portends for the nation, the Franklin cover-up followed the ugly precedent of the Warren Commission. Seller Inventory # APC9780963215802
