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

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.

Because It Is So Beautiful

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/because-it-is-so-beautiful...
A Finalist for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the EssayYes, every inch of the globe has been seen, mapped, photographed, and measured, but is it known? Robert Leonard Reid doesn't think so. To draw a circle and calculate its diameter is not to know the circle. In this collection, Reid distinguishes himself from many science-based nature writers, using the natural world as a springboard for speculations and musings on the numinous and the sacred, injustice, homelessness, the treatment of Native Peoples in the United States, and what pushes mountaineers to climb. Ranging in their settings from eastern New Mexico to northern Alaska, Reid's essays illustrate his belief that the American West is worth celebrating and caring for. Taking its title from an affecting speech given by renowned author Barry Lopez, Because It Is So Beautiful is a response to desperate questions surrounding America's wildlands. Lopez's words resonated with the young mountaineer-musician-mathematician Robert Leonard Reid, who was struggling to understand his relationship to the world, to find his vision as a writer. What he learned on that long-ago evening is knit throughout the nineteen pieces in the collection, which include essays from Reid's previous books Arctic Circle, Mountains of the Great Blue Dream, and America, New Mexico; three essays that appear here in print for the first time; as well as revised and expanded versions of essays that appeared in Touchstone, The Progressive, and elsewhere.

Kens

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/kens...
Heterosexuality is so last season: Kens is the gay Heathers meets Mean Girls, a shocking parody for a whole new generation. Every high school has the archetypical Queen B and her minions. In Kens, the high school hierarchy has been reimagined. Willows High is led by Ken Hilton, and he makes Regina George from Mean Girls look like a saint. Ken Hilton rules Willows High with his carbon-copies, Ken Roberts and Ken Carson, standing next to his throne. It can be hard to tell the Kens apart. There are minor differences in each edition, but all Kens are created from the same mold, straight out of Satan's doll factory. Soul sold separately. Tommy Rawlins can't help but compare himself to these shimmering images of perfection that glide through the halls. He's desperate to fit in, but in a school where the Kens are queens who are treated like Queens, Tommy is the uncool gay kid. A once-in-a-lifetime chance at becoming a Ken changes everything for Tommy, just as his eye is caught by the tall, dark, handsome new boy, Blaine. Has Blaine arrived in time to save him from the Kens? Tommy has high hopes for their future together, but when their shared desire to overthrow Ken Hilton takes a shocking turn, Tommy must decide how willing he is to reinvent himself - inside and out. Is this new version of Tommy everything he's always wanted to be, or has he become an unknowing and submissive puppet in a sadistic plan?

Raven's Cry

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/raven-s-cry-1...
Raven s Cry is a Northwest Coast classic - a moving and powerful work that is a fictionalized retelling of the near destruction of the Haida nation. The Haida are a proud and cultured people, whose home is Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands) off the coast of northern British Columbia. Until the first Europeans arrived in 1775, the Haida were the lords of the coast. The meeting of cultures was a fateful one: the Europeans had the advantages of firearms and immunity to their own deadly diseases. In just 150 years, the Haida and their culture were pushed to the edge of extinction. Christie Harris recreates this tale of tragedy and the ultimate survival of native spirit with dignity, beauty and ethnographic accuracy.

Exhibiting Mormonism

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/exhibiting-mormonism...
The 1893 Columbian Exposition, also known as the Chicago World's Fair, presented the Latter-day Saints with their first opportunity to exhibit the best of Mormonism for a national and an international audience after the abolishment of polygamy in 1890. The Columbian Exposition also marked the dramatic reengagement of the LDS Church with the non-Mormon world after decades of seclusion in the Great Basin. Between May and October 1893, over seven thousand Latter-day Saints from Utah attended the international spectacle popularly described as the "White City." While many traveled as tourists, oblivious to the opportunities to "exhibit" Mormonism, others actively participated to improve their church's public image. Hundreds of congregants helped create, manage, and staff their territory's impressive exhibit hall; most believed their besieged religion would benefit from Utah's increased national profile. Moreover, a good number of Latter-day Saint women represented the female interests and achievements of both Utah and its dominant religion. These women hoped to use the Chicago World's Fair as a platform to improve the social status of their gender and their religion. Additionally, two hundred and fifty of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's best singers competed in a Welsh eiseddfodd, a musical competition held in conjunction with the Chicago World's Fair, and Mormon apologist Brigham H. Roberts sought to gain LDS representation at the affiliated Parliament of Religions. In the first study ever written of Mormon participation at the Chicago World's Fair, Reid L. Neilson explores how Latter-day Saints attempted to "exhibit" themselves to the outside world before, during, and after the Columbian Exposition, arguing that their participation in the Exposition was a crucial moment in the Mormon migration to the American mainstream and its leadership's discovery of public relations efforts. After 1893, Mormon leaders sought to exhibit their faith rather than be exhibited by ot

Shark! Killer Tales From The Dangerous Depths

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/shark-killer-tales-from-the...
Personal accounts of encounters with sharks from shark hunters, divers, biologists and everyday swimmers who meet up with sharks either deliberately or by accident. SHARK! The cry that strikes fear into the hearts of beach lovers around the world. It carries a chill of terror, that death is nearby and waiting. Or injuries so shocking that the mind recoils from the thought. This book chronicles shark attacks both on Australia's fatal shores and overseas. It also records miraculous escapes - some so bizarre they defy belief, and some that display extraordinary courage in the face of extreme peril. Robert Reid interviews famous shark hunters and other adventurers who speak for the first time about their dangerous encounters with these fearsome predators. Reid investigates the phenomenon of the so-called 'rogue' sharks, those that stalk and kill humans in numbers, in the same place, at the same time. These are gripping stories that will both fascinate and frighten, stories that will take the reader into the realm of these strange but terrible creatures. They have ruled the oceans with ruthless efficiency for more than 400 million years. They are the silent killers of the deep.

Movie Mystery & Suspense

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/movie-mystery-suspense...
As the author of the acclaimed "Merryll Manning" series of crime and detective novels, Movie Mystery and Suspense is a topic right up my alley. Of course, this is not the first, nor is it the only movie book, in which I've tackled the mystery and suspense genre. Other books include "Great Cinema Detectives" and "Mystery, Suspense, Film Noir and Detective Movies on DVD". These books are still in print, but earlier accounts such as "Suspense in the Cinema", "Mystery Movies" and "More Movie Thrillers" were also bestsellers in their day. Fortunately, "Movie Mystery & Suspense" is the book I personally regard as my best on this particular topic. You'll find detailed accounts of such classics as "Johnny Allegro" ("When is a Columbia film not a Columbia film? Answer: When it's deliberately made to look like an RKO film noir"), "House of Strangers" (now available on an excellent Fox DVD), "The High Wall" and "Black Angel"; plus famous serials like "Daredevils of the Red Circle" (one of Republic's best). I also cover many of the legendary movies, including "The Big Sleep", "To Have and Have Not", "The Big Carnival", "Angel Face" and "My Name Is Julia Ross". And then, of course, there are the surprises. Lots of surprises, including two bonus monographs, one on director Robert Siodmak, the other on producer/director Otto Preminger! Although published way back in December, 2006, in the U.S.A, Canada and Great Britain, this book is not in the least dated. In fact, it was recently published without any alterations in Australia. Of course, many of these superb movies are now available on DVD, and that would partly explain this book's continued popularity.

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.
