Publisher description: In 1869 the federal government sent Captain D.C. Poole to Whetstone Agency, near Yangton, Dakota Territory, to serve as agent to the Brule and Oglala bands of the Sioux or Lakota people. There he witnessed and recorded their first experiment with reservation life--a stressful time of enforced social and cultural change. In these memoirs, first published in 1881 and never before made widely available, Poole depicts the daily life of the agency and the problems of the agent. Despite his lack of insight into American Indian culture, he also created a valuable record of Sioux customs and beliefs. In an insightful new introduction, Raymond J. DeMallie, director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute and professor of anthropology at the University of Indiana, places Poole's memoirs in their nineteenth century context and explains the circumstances surrounding the agent's work at Whetstone Agency

In Germany there had been since before the war even, a body of dedicated men from all walks of life who were resolved not merely to put an end to the Nazi tyranny, but to build in its place a new European order based on free and equal co-operation between peoples. The German opposition to Hitler is of special historical interest and the problem of resistance itself has far-reaching and undiminished importance. The true extent of the German Resistance, its composition, its aim and its efforts are revealed

"The definitive bilingual version of Rilke's New Poems--faithful to the original German, with insightful commentary on every poem. Rainer Maria Rilke is one of the world's best-selling poets, and New Poems contains many of his most iconic pieces. Throughout, Rilke he is obsessed with shapes and different layers of physical containment--from an image held in a panther's eye to a cathedral window. Translator Joseph Cadora has created the definitive English-language version through meticulous faithfulness to Rilke's German and insightful commentary on each of the four hundred-plus poems. As Cadora said in an interview, 'I tried to stay true to the vision of Rilke that would invite the reader into his world, not mine.'" -- Publisher's description
