  • Composers and Indians. Some composers at the turn of the 20th century turned to Native themes to develop an American music. Although this "Indianist School" is largely forgotten, it opened the door for indigenous composers drawing on their personal heritage.
  • From Indianists to Indians. Following the footsteps of Louis Ballard of Quapaw and Cherokee heritage, a younger generation is combining tribal roots with European classical training.
  • Knowing Where You Came From. Composer Peter Buffett recounts the inspiration behind his Spirit - the Seventh Fire production, perhaps the most ambitious recent attempt to bring Native dance and music to the stage.

  • A Rock and Pop Gallery. Some of the biggest stars in the music world turn to the First Nations for inspiration.

    Identity and Community on the Alaskan Frontier, Cuba, Lee J.
    9 Cuba, Lee J. Identity and Community on the Alaskan Frontier
    Temple University Press 1987 0877224579 / 9780877224570 hardcover with dust jacket used 206 pages, 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches tall 
    from the dust jacket: "No symbol has had a greater influence on twentieth-century American culture than the frontier. It has been used to rewrite our history, to define our national character, and to shape our vision of the future. Nearly one hundred years after historians proclaimed its passing, the American frontier continues to live in the landscape of contemporary Alaska.

    In this book, author Lee J. Cuba shows how the residents of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, establish and sustain their claim as modern-day American pioneers. Based on extensive field interviews and supplemented by a variety of other data sources, the book's analysis turns on the irony that Alaska emerged as a national frontier only after it became sufficiently urbanized, thus reaching a certain level of economic and political development. This investigation reveals the sense of community that developed among the residents of Anchorage and examines how new-comers come to share this sense and to identify themselves as members.

    Identity and Community on the Alaskan Frontier illustrates how the mobility and transiency of Alaska's population combine to promote a sense of community among Anchorage residents. In a world of frequent residential mobility, Cuba contends that an important part of who we are is still derived from where we live."

    The Rise and Fall of Great Cities, Lawton, Richard (editor)
    10 Lawton, Richard (editor) The Rise and Fall of Great Cities
    Belhaven Press 1989 Hardcover with dust jacket used 185 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
    dust jacket: "The great cities of Europe and North America experienced unparalleled growth in the late nineteenth century and first three quarters of the twentieth century on the basis of mercantile and industrial prosperity. Suddenly, as economic structures and urban functions have changed, the role of the city has dramatically altered, with sometimes painful consequences for urban populations, fabric and economies. Professor Lawton, one of the leading historical geographers of the present day, has brought a group of distinquished scholars to examine the changing nature of the urban fact within a comparative framework. The scope of the book is both historical and contemporary with the lessons for the future kept clearly in view.

    The book opens with a broad analysis of the nature of urbanisation in the West between AD 1800-2000, charting the main forces that have shaped cities in the period. Individual chapters from leading authorities follow the themes through in detail, dealing in turn with urban economies, planning, attitudes to urban life, commercial structures, population, public health, housing, recent extensions of the 'city region' and the future role of cities as hubs of a global information network.

    As both prospect and retrospect, this book provides a timely comment and summary of modern western urbanism which will be required reading for all social scientists and historians concerned with cities."

    Condition: Book is in good condition, the pages are crisp and clean. Binding is tight. Dust jacket has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.

    Abstract Freedom, Creating Emotional Integrity In Relationships, Leonard, Lorenzo D
    11 Leonard, Lorenzo D Abstract Freedom, Creating Emotional Integrity In Relationships
    Puget Sound Press 1999 softcover used 211 pages, 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches tall 
    cover: "Abstract Freedom is a powerful and persuasive book with regard to its ability to make a vital connection between our collective past as a society and our personal ethnic and cultural histories. Abstract Freedom assists the reader in understanding how American society is able to make amazing technological and economical advancements, yet is unable to establish the same competence in advancing human relationships.

    The author, Lorenzo D Leonard, brings to the forefront a critical element formerly missing from our history lessons. What we are teaching out children with regards to the history of their culture serves to perpetuate the violence, dominance and hatred we currently witness being acted out with a disturbing frequency. This book offers a clear analysis of how the distorted truth with reference to our collective past, as a society, impacts the core of an individual's personal life, especially primary relationships."

    Condition: Book is in good condition, the pages are crisp and clean. Cover has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.

    In the Face of Suffering, The Philosophical Anthropological Foundations of Clinical Ethics, Welie, Jos V M
    13 Welie, Jos V M In the Face of Suffering, The Philosophical Anthropological Foundations of Clinical Ethics
    Creighton University Press 1999 softcover used 304 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
    from the cover: "In contemporary health care ethics, respect for patient autonomy is often considered the primary ethical principle, trumping all others. Many health care ethicists and clinicians alike presume that it is impossible to make judgements about patients' best interests. Patients and their health care providers meet as moral strangers. Hence, the conventional wisdom is that clinical interactions should be based on a contractual relationship between tow respectful but estranged people.

    Dr. Jos Welie challenges this moral stranger metaphor and attempts to restore the phenomenon of intersubjective, benevolent care. He presents a philosophical-anthropological foundatoin for clinical ethics in which such notions as suffering, sympathy and solidarity are central. The author's extensive discourse with so many established names in both European and American philosophy and bioethics will make this book a valuable resourse to many professionals."

    Condition: Book is in good condition, the pages are crisp and clean. Cover has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.
