Historical atlas of the United States : with original maps by Derek Hayes( )

Rhapsodies in black : art of the Harlem Renaissance by Rhapsodies in Black: Art of the Harlem Renaissance (Exhibition)( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rhapsodies in Black takes a fresh look at the Harlem Renaissance, contesting narrow interpretations of it as an isolated phenomenon confined to artists of color inhabiting a few square miles of Manhattan and, instead, recognizing it as a historical moment of global significance, with connections to Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, and other parts of the United States, in particular Chicago and the Deep South. Like jazz musicians, the artists of the Harlem Renaissance era traveled and interacted, and their art was cosmopolitan, inspired by European modernism as well as the cultural and artistic groundswell of black America

Poems for the millennium by Jerome Rothenberg( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we come to the beginning of a new century, we find that the entire vista of modern poetry has dramatically changed. Poems for the Millennium captures the essence of that change, and unlike any anthology available today it reveals the revolutionary concepts at the very heart of contemporary poetry. International in its coverage, these volumes bring together the poets and poetry movements that radically altered the ways that art and language express the human condition. Volume 2 offers a dazzling chronicle of the second "great awakening" of experimental poetry in the twentieth century. Ranging from the period of World War II through the cold war to the onset of the twenty-first century, this volume presents two "galleries" of individual poets such as Holan, Olson, Rukeyser, Jabès, Celan, Mac Low, Pasolini, Bachmann, Finlay, Ginsberg, Adonis, Rich, U Tam'si, Baraka, Takahashi, Waldman, and Bei Dao. There are also samplings of local and international movements: the Beats, the Vienna Group, the Cobra poets and artists, the Arabic-language Tammuzi poets, the creators of a new "Concrete Poetry," the "postwar poets" of Japan, the Italian Novissimi and Avan-Guardia, the Chinese Misty Poets, and the North American Language Poets. In addition, an extended section is devoted to examples of the "art of the manifesto" and two smaller groupings of traditional "oral poets" and of experimenters with machine art and cyberpoetics. Poet-editors Jerome Rothenberg and Pierre Joris provide informative and irreverent commentaries throughout. They challenge old truths and propose alternative directions, in the tradition of the manifestos that have marked the art and poetry of the twentieth century. The result is both an essential resource for experiencing the full range of contemporary poetic possibilities and an arresting statement on the future of poetry in the millennium ahead.-- Publisher description
Science and values : the aims of science and their role in scientific debate by Larry Laudan( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Wildest Alaska : journeys of great peril in Lituya Bay by Philip L Fradkin( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty-five years ago Philip L. Fradkin read a book about a remote bay on the Gulf of Alaska coast. The noted environmental historian was attracted by the threads of violence woven through the natural and human histories of Lituya Bay. Could these histories be related, and if so, how? The attempt to define the power of this wild place led Fradkin on a tantalizing and, as it turned out, dangerous quest. This compelling and eerie memoir tells of his odyssey through recorded history and eventually to the bay iteslf, as he explores the dark and unyielding side of nature."--Jacket
