Item Description: Counterpoint, Washington, D.C., U.S.A., 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. Near-new condition. SIGNED/AUTOGRAPHED by author in 2 locations on title page. NO other writing or marks inside book. Tight spine, clean pages. NO tears inside book. A close examination of the questions facing communities across the United States where dam removal is on the environmental and political agenda. Dams and diversions along America's rivers have transformed the country and in doing so created environmental problems whose resolution will, in many ways, determine how we live in the next century. There are over 75,000 dams in the country and almost no major river in the country remains undammed. But now, for the first time in our nation's history, the pace of dam removal has overtaken the pace of construction as communities across the country commit themselves to river restoration, including the removal of harmful dams.Questioning the value of dams requires a serious readjustment in the country's notion of progress, a prospect threatening to some and daunting to all. Watershed examines the implications of dam removal to America's rivers and their communities by exploring the stories of a number of places where dam removal and river restoration are now underway. This is a story of people and place, and of a vital turning point in the nation's relationship to its rivers. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 046455

Item Description: Knopf, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. 1st Edition. B000PGMUCK Not A Former Library Book, Not A Remainder Or Book Club, Not Clipped, Hardcover. Some Water Marks On The Bottom Edge,Of Stated First Edition. Writing With All The Brilliance, Authority, And Pungent Wit That Have Distinguished His Art Criticism For Time Magazine And His Greatly Acclaimed Study Of Modern Art, The Shock Of The New, Robert Hughes Now Addresses His Largest Subject: The History Of Art In America. The Intense Relationship Between The American People And Their Surroundings Has Been The Source Of A Rich Artistic Tradition. American Visions Is A Consistently Revealing Demonstration. Of The Many Ways In Which Artists Have Expressed This Pervasive Connection. In Nine Eloquent Chapters, Which Span The Whole Range Of Events, Movements, And Personalities Of More Than Three Centuries, Robert Hughes Shows Us The Myriad Associations Between The Unique Society That Is America And The Art It Has Produced: "O My America, My New Founde Land" Explores The Churches, Religious Art, And Artifacts Of The Spanish Invaders Of The Southwest And The Puritans Of New England; The Austere Esthetic Of The Amish, The Quakers, And The Shakers; And The Anglophile Culture Of Virginia. "The Republic Of Virtue" Sets Forth The Ideals Of Neo-Classicism As Interpreted In The Paintings Of Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, And The Peale Family, And In The Public Architecture Of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Latrobe, And Charles Bulfinch. "The Wilderness And The West" Discusses The Work Of Landscape Painters Such As Thomas Cole, Frederick Church, And The Luminists, Who Viewed The Natural World As "The Fingerprint Of God's Creation," And Of Those Who Recorded America's Westward Expansion--George Caleb Bingham, Albert Bierstadt, And Frederic Remington--And The Accompanying Shift In The Perception Of The Indian, From Noble Savage To Outright Demon. "American Renaissance" Describes The Opulent Era That Followed The Civil War, A Cultural Flowering Expressed In The Sculpture Of Augustus Saint-Gaudens; The Paintings Of John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, And Childe Hassam; The Newport Cottages Of The Super-Rich; And The Beaux-Arts Buildings Of Stanford White And His Partners. "The Gritty Cities" Looks At The Post-Civil War Years From Another Perspective: Cast-Iron Cityscapes, The Architecture Of Louis Henri Sullivan, And The New Realism Of Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, The Trompe-L'oeil Painters, And The Ashcan School. "Early Modernism" Introduces The First American Avant Garde: The Painters Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Joseph Stella, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, And Georgia O'keeffe, And The Premier Architect Of His Time, Frank Lloyd Wright. "Streamlines And Breadlines" Surveys The Boom Years, When Skyscrapers And Art Deco Were All The Rage . . . And The Bust Years That Followed, When Painters Such As Edward Hopper, Stuart Davis, Thomas Hart Benton, Diego Rivera, And Jacob Lawrence Showed Americans "The Way We Live Now." "The Empire Of Signs" Examines The American Hegemony After World War Ii, When The Abstract Expressionists (Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, Mark Rothko, Et Al.) Ruled The Artistic Roost, Until They Were Dethroned By Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, The Pop Artists, And Andy Warhol, While Individualists Such As David Smith And Joseph Cornell Marched To Their Own Music. "The Age Of Anxiety" Considers Recent Events: The Return Of Figurative Art And The Appearance Of Minimal And Conceptual Art; The Speculative Mania Of The 1980S, Which Led To Scandalous Auction Practices And Inflated Reputations; And The Trends And Issues Of Art In The 90S. Lavishly Illustrated And Packed With Biographies, Anecdotes, Astute And Stimulating Critical Commentary, And Sharp Social History, American Visions Is Published In Association With A New Eight-Part Pbs Television.

Item Description: Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. 256 Pages, Today, millions of people around the world enjoy California's legendary wines, unaware that 90 years ago the families who made these wines - and in many cases still do - turned to struggle and subterfuge to save the industry we now cherish. When Prohibition took effect in 1919, three months after one of the greatest California grape harvests of all time, violence and chaos descended on Northern California. Federal agents spilled thousands of gallons of wine in the rivers and creeks, gun battles erupted on dark country roads, and local law enforcement officers, sympathetic to their winemaking neighbors, found ways to run circles around the intruding authorities. For the state's winemaking families - many of them immigrants from Italy - surviving Prohibition meant facing impossible decisions, whether to give up the idyllic way of life their families had known for generations, or break the law to enable their wine businesses and their livelihood to survive. Including moments of both desperation and joy, Sosnowski tells the inspiring story of how ordinary people fought to protect to a beautiful and timeless culture in the lovely hills and valleys of now-celebrated wine country.

Wine lovers everywhere should thank her for tracking down survivors, many now in their 90s, who provided rich accounts of what it was like to live through that terrible nightmare. A tale well told, Sosnowski has a fine touch.' - George M.

Item Description: Alfred A. Knopf; A Borzoi Book, New York, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. x, 449 pages; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A fine copy of the first printing. "An illuminating account of the birth and rise of the global political and economic system that, sustained first by Britain and now by America, created the modern world. Walter Russell Mead, one of our most distinguished foreign policy experts, makes clear that the key to the predominance of the two countries has been the individualistic ideology of the prevailing Anglo-American religion. Mead explains how this helped create a culture uniquely adapted to capitalism, a system under which both countries thrived. We see how, as a result, the two nations were able to create the liberal, democratic system whose economic and social influence continues to grow around the world. With wit, verve, and stunning insight, Mead recounts what is, in effect, the story of a centuries-long war between the English-speaking peoples and their enemies. Sustained by control of the oceans that surround them, the British and their American heirs built a global system of politics, power, investment, and trade over the past three hundred years. Along the way, the two nations developed a sophisticated grand strategy that brought the English-speaking powers to a pinnacle of global power and prestige unmatched in the history of the world. Since Oliver Cromwell's day, the English-speakers have seen their enemies as haters of liberty and God who care nothing for morality, who will do anything to win, and who rely on a treacherous fifth column to assure victory. Those enemies, from Catholic Spain and Louis XIV to the Nazis, communists, and Al-Qaeda, held similar beliefs about their British and American rivals, but we see that though the Anglo-Americans have lost small wars here and there, they have won the major conflicts. So far. The stakes today are higher than ever; technological progress makes new and terrible weapons easier for rogue states and terror groups to develop and deploy. Where some see an end to history and others a clash of civilizations, Mead sees the current conflicts in the Middle East as the latest challenge to the liberal, capitalist, and democratic world system that the Anglo-Americans are trying to build. What we need now, he says, is a diplomacy of civlizations based on a deeper understanding of the recurring conflicts between the liberal world system and its foes. In practice, this means that Americans generally, and especially the increasingly influential evangelical community, must develop a better sense of America's place in the world. Mead's emphasis on the English-speaking world as the chief hero (and sometimes villain) in modern history changes the way we see the world. Authoritative and lucid, God and Gold weaves history, literature, philosophy, and religion together into an eminently important work--a dazzling book that helps us understand the world we live in and our tumultuous times. / Walter Russell Mead is the Henry A. Kissinger Senior Fellow in U.S. Foreign Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations. He is a regular book reviewer for Foreign Affairs, a member of the editorial board of The American Interest, and a founding board member of the New America Foundation. He has written frequently for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Esquire. His books include Special Providence, which won the Lionel Gelber Award ('the world's most important prize for nonfiction'--The Economist) in 2002, and Power, Terror, Peace, and War.

Item Description: Warner Books, New York, 2001. Book Condition: very good, very good. First Edition. First Printing. 356, notes, appendix, index. This investigation into the American workforce introduces the concept of the free agent who, unlike the organization man of the 1950s and after, is no longer yoked to a large corporation. People who are free agents leverage their skills and cherish their independence, and sometimes they form small networks or microbusinesses. Pink examines the number of these independent workers in the economy, and how they are changing the way business operates. Pink (contributing editor, Fast Company) reveals that over 25 million Americans are now self-employed, and fewer than one in ten works for a Fortune 500 company. This excellent work synthesizes the seismic shift in attitudes and in patterns of work in the economy from the early 1950s era of William Whyte's The Organization Man to today's independent worker.

Item Description: Alfred A. Knopf; A Borzoi Book, New York, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. Cloth, ix, 635 pp., illus. (some col.); 26 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. With 363 illustrations, 323 in full colour. "Writing with all the brilliance, authority, and pungent wit that have distinguished his art criticism for Time magazine and his greatly acclaimed study of modern art, The Shock of the New, Robert Hughes now addresses his largest subject: the history of art in America. The intense relationship between the American people and their surroundings has been the source of a rich artistic tradition. American Visions is a consistently revealing demonstration of the many ways in which artists have expressed this pervasive connection. In nine eloquent chapters, which span the whole range of events, movements, and personalities of more than three centuries, Robert Hughes shows us the myriad associations between the unique society that is America and the art it has produced: 'O My America, My New Founde Land' explores the churches, religious art, and artifacts of the Spanish invaders of the Southwest and the Puritans of New England; the austere esthetic of the Amish, the Quakers, and the Shakers; and the Anglophile culture of Virginia. 'The Republic of Virtue' sets forth the ideals of neo-classicism as interpreted in the paintings of Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, and the Peale family, and in the public architecture of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Latrobe, and Charles Bulfinch. 'The Wilderness and the West' discusses the work of landscape painters such as Thomas Cole, Frederick Church, and the Luminists, who viewed the natural world as 'the fingerprint of God's creation,' and of those who recorded America's westward expansion--George Caleb Bingham, Albert Bierstadt, and Frederic Remington--and the accompanying shift in the perception of the Indian, from noble savage to outright demon. 'American Renaissance' describes the opulent era that followed the Civil War, a cultural flowering expressed in the sculpture of Augustus Saint-Gaudens; the paintings of John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, and Childe Hassam; the Newport cottages of the super-rich; and the beaux-arts buildings of Stanford White and his partners. 'The Gritty Cities' looks at the post-Civil War years from another perspective: cast-iron cityscapes, the architecture of Louis Henri Sullivan, and the new realism of Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, the trompe-l'oeil painters, and the Ashcan School. 'Early Modernism' introduces the first American avant garde: the painters Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Joseph Stella, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, and Georgia O'Keeffe, and the premier architect of his time, Frank Lloyd Wright. 'Streamlines and Breadlines' surveys the boom years, when skyscrapers and Art Deco were all the rage.and the bust years that followed, when painters such as Edward Hopper, Stuart Davis, Thomas Hart Benton, Diego Rivera, and Jacob Lawrence showed Americans 'the way we live now.' 'The Empire of Signs' examines the American hegemony after World War II, when the Abstract Expressionists (Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, et al.) ruled the artistic roost, until they were dethroned by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, the Pop artists, and Andy Warhol, while individualists such as David Smith and Joseph Cornell marched to their own music. 'The Age of Anxiety' considers recent events: the return of figurative art and the appearance of minimal and conceptual art; the speculative mania of the 1980s, which led to scandalous auction practices and inflated reputations; and the trends and issues of art in the 90s. Lavishly illustrated and packed with biographies, anecdotes, astute and stimulating critical commentary, and sharp social history, American Visions is published in association with a new eight-part PBS television series. Robert Hughes has called it 'a love letter to America.' This superb volume, which encompasses an. Collectible. Bookseller Inventory # 071443

Item Description: University of Oklahoma Press, United States, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1990 Reprint of 2nd Edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Events which become historical, says Michael Kraus, do not live on because of their mere occurrence. They survive when writers re-create them and thus preserve for posterity their otherwise fleeting existence. Paul Revere s ride, for example, might well have vanished from the records had not Longfellow snatched it from approaching oblivion and given it a dramatic spot in American history. Now Revere rides on in spirited passages in our history books. In this way the recorder of events becomes almost as important as the events themselves. In other words, historiography--the study of historians and their particular contributions to the body of historical records-must not be ignored by those who seriously wish to understand the past. When the first edition of Michael Kraus s Writing of American History was published, a reviewer for the New York Herald Tribune wrote: -No serious study of our national origins and development can afford not to have such an aid as this at his elbow.- The book quickly came to be regarded as one of the few truly standard general surveys of American historiography, invaluable as a reference book, as a textbook, and as a highly readable source of information for the interested general reader. This new edition with coauthor Davis D. Joyce confirms its position as the definitive work in the field. Concise yet comprehensive, here is an analysis of the writers and writings of American history from the Norse voyages to modern times. The book has its roots in Kraus s pioneering History of American History, published in 1937, a unique and successful attempt to cover in one volume the entire sweep of American historical activity. Kraus revised and updated the book in 1953, when it was published under the present title. Now, once again, the demand for its revision has been met. Davis D. Joyce, with the full cooperation and approval of Kraus, has thoroughly revised and brought up to date the text of the 1953 edition. The clarity and evenhandedness of Kraus s text has been carefully preserved. The last three chapters add entirely new material, surveying the massive and complex body of American historical writing since World War II: -Consensus: American Historical Writing in the 1950s, - -Conflict: American Historical Writing in the 1960s, - and -Complexity: American Historical Writing in the 1970s-and Beyond.-.
