Bill Reid

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/bill-reid...
Part biography, part art history - a thoroughly engaging look at one man's life and his phenomenal influence on the world of contemporary art. Bill Reid was at the forefront of the modern-day renaissance of Northwest Coast Native art; but his art, and his life, was not without controversy. Like the raven - the trickster and principal figure in countless Haida myths - Bill Reid reinvented himself several times over. Born to a partly Haida mother and a father of German and Scottish descent, his public persona as a Haida Indian seems to have been as much a product of journalists, art patrons, museum curators and others in the non-Native establishment as of Bill Reid himself. It is clear that Reid's art arose from the tension that existed between his Native and white artistic perceptions. Award-winning biographer and cultural historian Maria Tippett became intrigued by this enigmatic figure who referred to his own early works as "artefakes," yet to this day continues to inspire new generations of Northwest Coast artists, including Robert Davidson and Jim Hart. But she questions whether Reid's status as the architect of contemporary Native art is fair and accurate, given that artists such as Mungo Martin had been keeping the tradition alive since the beginning of the twentieth century. Most controversially, she explores how Reid brought a sensibility formed through his white heritage to the reinvention of Native art. By asking difficult questions about Reid's life and work, and by analyzing the works of other Native artists since the beginning of the twentieth century, Tippet gives the reader the defining portrait of Bill Reid - one of Canada's most enigmatic and beloved artists. Bill Reid's work can be found in private and public art galleries and museums all over the world. The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia houses the famous The Raven and The First Men and many smaller masterworks. The Spirit of Haida Gwaii, a monumental bronze sculpture

Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/ultrafast-nonlinear-optics...
The field of ultrafast nonlinear optics is broad and multidisciplinary, and encompasses areas concerned with both the generation and measurement of ultrashort pulses of light, as well as those concerned with the applications of such pulses. Ultrashort pulses are extreme events - both in terms of their durations, and also the high peak powers which their short durations can facilitate. These extreme properties make them powerful experiment tools. On one hand, their ultrashort durations facilitate the probing and manipulation of matter on incredibly short timescales. On the other, their ultrashort durations can facilitate high peak powers which can drive highly nonlinear light-matter interaction processes. Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics covers a complete range of topics, both applied and fundamental in nature, within the area of ultrafast nonlinear optics. Chapters 1 to 4 are concerned with the generation and measurement of ultrashort pulses. Chapters 5 to 7 are concerned with fundamental applications of ultrashort pulses in metrology and quantum control. Chapters 8 and 9 are concerned with ultrafast nonlinear optics in optical fibres. Chapters 10 to 13 are concerned with the applications of ultrashort pulses in areas such as particle acceleration, microscopy, and micromachining. The chapters are aimed at graduate-student level and are intended to provide the student with an accessible, self-contained and comprehensive gateway into each subject.

Croc!

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/croc...
Croc! It's a cry that sends shivers of fear through anyone within earshot. Croc! takes the reader into the fascinating world of this dangerous animal, and into the lives of the people who hunted or were hunted by them. These true stories paint a picture of incredible hardship, endurance and the sheer will to survive in one of the world's last great wilderness areas. Robert Reid interviews the men and women who culled the saltwater crocodile in North Queensland, along with survivors of attacks by these fearsome creatures and those who witnessed scenes of real horror. The people he meets are every bit as colourful and courageous as any fictional characters in fact it would be difficult to invent some of them. These tales of tragic fatalities and amazing escapes from the jaws of these primeval animals are the stuff of headlines. They are riveting stories of humans versus beasts in an unforgiving environment.

Benediction

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/benediction-8...
Alexandra Roeg was an artist, and one night she wanted to create a masterpiece by cutting the heart out of the man who raped her. Proving the case should be easy, she told Detective Leo Banks. Find the video recording made by a second man, and he would have all the proof anyone would need. For Banks, the attack brought to mind Donna Sanger, an eighteen year girl dead of an overdose five years ago after being lured into the porn trade by a Johnny Perbix, a recording industry mogul turned land developer. Unable to save Donna Sanger, Banks was determined to get justice for Alexandra Roeg-especially when he learned that her ex-husband worked for Perbix, the man who turned out Donna Sanger. No stranger to crime and tragedy, the one thing Banks hadn't counted on was how much he needed to trust somebody. And worse, the cost of making the wrong choice. BENEDICTION winds through the back rooms and the sometimes bleak, sometimes trendy streets of Rozette, Montana, where hope and vengeance simmer into a poisonous brew

Wild Animals

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/wild-animals-6...
Good old by Merle Puhl is campaigning to be a United States Senator from Montana, and a former President is coming to Rozette to give him a hand. This means that the Secret Service is coming, too, and local police detective Ray Bartell is assigned to work with them. Bartell's job: act as the security detail's tour guide in the realm of local lunatics. The job starts out interesting, but takes a bad turn when Puhl decides to use one outspoken environmentalist, Henry Skelton, as campaign fodder. Skelton has a violent past, so the Secret Service-and consequently Bartell-must take him seriously. In response, Skelton seems determined to prove that everything Puhl does to portray him as a dangerous extremist is true. But where, Bartell comes to wonder, are the lines of extremism drawn? How do you recognize the difference between a patriotic fool and a foolish patriot? And how do you sort out the wreckage when the two clash?

Conjugal Union

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/conjugal-union-the-body-the...
In Conjugal Union, Robert F. Reid-Pharr argues that during the antebellum period a community of free black northeastern intellectuals sought to establish the stability of a Black American subjectivity by figuring the black body as the necessary antecedent to any intelligible Black American public presence. Reid-Pharr goes on to argue that the fact of the black body's constant and often spectacular display demonstrates an incredible uncertainty as to that body's status. Thus antebellum black intellectuals were always anxious about how a stable relationship between the black community might be maintained. Paying particular attention to Black American novels written before the Civil War, the author shows how the household was utilized by these writers to normalize this relationship of body to community such that a person could enter a household as a white and leave it as a black.

The First Stone

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-first-stone-4...
Rev. Jonah Newman becomes the interim pastor of a congregation in the Pacific Northwest where the previous pastor's counseling ministry caused too many church and community members to be ready to cast the first stone. When the local newspaper alerts readers that the previous pastor left dictated notes on his counseling sessions, Rev. Newman must contend with townsfolk who fear that he has listened to these tapes and with the unsettling idea that the previous pastor's untimely death may not have been an accident. The First Stone introduces Jonah Newman, who with his son Mark, is trying to make peace with the death of his wife and ministry partner a year ago. Newman comes to Mason Street Church hoping to draw on his own experience in coming to terms with tragedy as a way to help another congregation that is reeling from the sudden death of its young pastor. What he finds is a congregation torn by the unresolved questions of whether their spiritual leader had been led astray by temptation or had met his end because he became privy to information that a counselee regretted sharing. In this novel Reid revisits the fictional characterization of a clergy sleuth and, with the creation of Jonah Newman, seeks to bring a fresh perspective to this genre. The story lifts up the inner workings of contemporary small Protestant congregation and explores the moral dilemmas faced by its people and their leaders. This is a world where passion and piety too often are uneasily yoked, especially when challenged by a society where matters sacred are no longer considered taboo.

The Red Corvette

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-red-corvette-1...
When Leo Banks was a young man, he fell hard for a woman named Sarah. Yet when Banks joined the navy during the Vietnam War, Sarah left him to marry his best friend, Gerry Heyman. Heyman became a doctor and settled with Sarah in Mauvaisterre, Illinois, his childhood hometown near St. Louis. He and Sarah had two kids, and life was good, just what both believed that they had always wanted. After the navy, Banks found his way by freight train to Rozette, Montana. Against all apparent odds, he became a police officer, completed a career, and retired. Gerry and Sarah Heyman were long out of his life, until the day they passed through town while on a vacation trip to Glacier Park. Would Banks, Heyman asks, be willing to come to Mauvaisterre and help him investigate a murder that happened nearly fifty years ago? Heyman is convinced that an innocent man, a man with diminished mental capacity, was wrongly convicted. Banks is not interested, but things change not long afterward, when he gets word from Sarah that Gerry is dead. She suspects murder and a connection to his interest in the old crime. This changes everything and Banks is soon entangled with murder, old and new, a rich man who knows no way but his own, and a lover whom he had long believed gone from his life forever.
