Voices in Clay is a dialogue between working Pueblo potters and the pottery made by their ancestors between 1880 and 1940. Three traditional potters and three Pueblo pottery experts selected more than a hundred pots for inclusion in this book. The three Pueblo potters were Elvis Torrez of San Ildefonso Pueblo, Robert Tenorio of Santa Domingo Pueblo and Steve Lucas, a First Mesa Hopi-Tewa. The three curators - Bruce Bernstein, J.J. Brody and Tony Chavarria (from Santa Clara Pueblo and curator of ethnology at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe) - were present to guide the conversation and to interpret the significance of indigenous pottery for the non-Pueblo world. The result is a narrative of multiple voices. There are the potters' words describing the pottery in front of them, the process of pottery-making, the pottery-making world and the process the curators and potters went through in selecting works for the book. Historical introductions by Bernstein and Brody bring context to the selection of pots.

Clay's influence in our lives is more than most realize. Used in medicine (mainstream and alternative), esthetics, by scientists, biologists, geologists, builders, and of course potters (among others), it weaves together a tapestry of disciplines that would not normally be perceived as connected. Described in these quotes as crystalline, electromagnetic, a living being, a mode of consciousness, source of light, healer, purifier, direct, sensual, dimensional, and more, this sacred material reveals to us how science, spirituality, religion, crafts, art of all kinds, philosophy and psychology are more effective in collaboration, and through the lens of similarities.The 365 quotes are broken down into 5 chapters, Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether in order to reveal the mastery with which this simple, humble substance cross-pollinates disciplines we think should be kept (and taught) separately.

Hosting philosophers and rebels, historymakers and historians, the net has more friction and fewer rules than the Annual Meeting of Anarchists. Still, on the Internet stage, people from everywhere continue to rapidly develop a unique and fascinating culture of their own, complete with all the benefits, and problems, of a real-life society. In Voices from the Net, author Clay Shirky takes you on a tour of the communities of the net - a tour that shows you where and how they form, and how they have made the Internet the most dynamic, far-reaching online phenomenon to date. It is only in the cyberspace communities on the net that webs of words become more vital than their counterparts in the "real" world. Drawing from many arenas and many voices, the author weaves together the threads of individuality and community that gather the net into one fabric where groups of people create their own online universe. Although many of the voices in Voices from the Net aren't in tune, you'll find that they form a fascinating choir that is as full as the net itself.

Known as the Great Compromiser, Henry Clay earned his title by addressing sectional tensions over slavery and forestalling civil war in the United States. Today he is still regarded as one of the most important political figures in American history. As Speaker of the House of Representatives and secretary of state, Clay left an indelible mark on American politics at a time when the country's solidarity was threatened by inner turmoil, and scholars have thoroughly chronicled his political achievements. However, little attention has been paid to his extensive family legacy. In The Family Legacy of Henry Clay: In the Shadow of a Kentucky Patriarch, Lindsey Apple explores the personal history of this famed American and examines the impact of his legacy on future generations of Clays. Apple's study delves into the family's struggles with physical and emotional problems such as depression and alcoholism. The book also analyzes the role of financial stress as the family fought to reestablish its fortune in the years after the Civil War. Apple's extensively researched volume illuminates a little-discussed aspect of Clay's life and heritage, and highlights the achievements and contributions of one of Kentucky's most distinguished families.

The emancipationist Cassius M. Clay has long been one of Kentucky's most controversial and misunderstood figures. This new biography examines his important, though undervalued, place in history from the anti-slavery movement to his role in Lincoln's minister to Russia during the Civil War. Along the way the many fights, romantic entanglements, and political battes of Clay's life are explored. The author, a former guide at Clay's mansion, White Hall, unearthed long forgotten documents such as newspaper and magazine articles, interviews with Clay, and family letters. As a result this book contains much information found in no other Clay biography and many long-standing myths are debunked. In addition to the biography of Clay, the book contains a room-by-room tour of White Hall, several informative appendices, and a collection of ghost stories concerning Clay's mansion, making it both ideal for history buffs and the public at large.

Often forgotten and overlooked, the U.S.-Mexican War featured false starts, atrocities, and daring back-channel negotiations as it divided the nation, paved the way for the Civil War a generation later, and launched the career of Abraham Lincoln. Amy S. Greenberg’s skilled storytelling and rigorous scholarship bring this American war for empire to life with memorable characters, plotlines, and legacies. When President James K. Polk compelled a divided Congress to support his war with Mexico, it was the first time that the young American nation would engage another republic in battle. Caught up in the conflict and the political furor surrounding it were Abraham Lincoln, then a new congressman; Polk, the dour president committed to territorial expansion at any cost; and Henry Clay, the aging statesman whose presidential hopes had been frustrated once again, but who still harbored influence and had one last great speech up his sleeve. Beyond these illustrious figures, A Wicked War follows several fascinating and long-neglected characters: Lincoln’s archrival John Hardin, whose death opened the door to Lincoln’s rise; Nicholas Trist, gentleman diplomat and secret negotiator, who broke with his president to negotiate a fair peace; and Polk’s wife, Sarah, whose shrewd politicking was crucial in the Oval Office. This definitive history of the 1846 conflict paints an intimate portrait of the major players and their world. It is a story of Indian fights, Manifest Destiny, secret military maneuvers, gunshot wounds, and political spin. Along the way it captures a young Lincoln mismatching his clothes, the lasting influence of the Founding Fathers, the birth of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and America’s first national antiwar movement. A key chapter in the creation of the United States, it is the story of a burgeoning nation and an unforgettable conflict that has shaped American history.

He thinks his plan to retire early is unfolding nicely until his longtime business partner screws him out of his interest in a choice piece of real estate. After he tries—and fails—to recoup his investment via a nasty court battle, Redmond begins to plot his revenge. Redmond’s plan includes not only eliminating his crooked business partner, but also seducing his beautiful and considerably younger wife, Vanessa. As he concocts an elaborate scheme that takes him to the heart of Fidel Castro’s Cuba, Santo Domingo, and the Andes Mountains of South America where he conspires with a powerful Spaniard drug lord, Redmond unintentionally falls in love with Vanessa, all while attempting to seek justice and recover his retirement nest egg. But as he presses on into perilous territory, Redmond soon discovers that he is not only the hunter, but also the hunted. In this gripping mystery, a middle-aged real estate broker embarks on a vengeful quest where he must risk everything in an attempt to ensure his former business partner and his cronies receive their comeuppance.

During the Jim Crowe Era in Alabama, African- American children were told by their parents and teachers that they had to be “ten times better than their white counterparts, just to stay even”. Striving to be ten times better became the standard of behavior for Dr. Joice Christine Bailey Lewis who achieved success with ten times fewer resources and against ten times greater odds. What sustained her during the most diffi cult times was the evidence that her people had survived the hardships faced during two periods of slavery: the enslavement of Africans and the era of Sharecropping. Raised on a sharecropping farm and having no money to go to college, Dr. Lewis, nevertheless found a way to achieve a doctoral degree and experience success as an educator.
