Margaret Mead : an observer observed by Alan Berliner( Visual )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary is a fascinating portrait of one of the most influential women of our time. Using never- before -seen archival footage, stills, interviews and dramatic re-creations, it weaves together a story of a scientist, adventurer and international celebrity whose ideas shaped how we think about ourselves. The film tells how she first gained attention in the 1920 s and 30 s with her pioneering studies of youth and gender in Samoa and New Guinea. By age 33, the five-foot, one-hundred-pound Mead had traveled three times around the globe, explored unchartered lands where few men and no women dared to go. By age 34 she had published three bestsellers, taken the second of three husbands, and revolutionized our understanding of what it means to be male or female. When she was not doing fieldwork, most of her professional years were spent at the American Museum of Natural History. In her later years she was often seen on television as a bespectacled, sometimes outrageous advice-giver to the Vietnam War generation. This film deals with the controversies as well as the accomplishments of her life. Here is a valuable film for Women's Studies, Anthropology and History, as well as public library audiences. This film was partially funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation
Austin Val Verde : a Montecito masterpiece by Berge Aran( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Austin Val Verde, situated on seventeen and a half acres, is one of the few great early twentieth-century Southern California estates to have been preserved. It is a pivotal work in the career of the famous American architect Bertram Goodhue (1869-1924). Its celebrated and extensive gardens are the masterpiece of Lockwood de Forest Jr. (1896-1949), one of the most important landscape architects to have worked in Southern California. For three decades, Austin Val Verde housed one of the finest private collections of Greek and Roman sculpture, and for many years a number of celebrities from the worlds of film, stage, music, literature, and art visited or stayed at the estate. Although Austin Val Verde has been included in a number of survey publications on major estates and gardens, this is the first book that focuses on its beautiful mansion and grounds."--Jacket
