Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village by Book Resume:

Home to Chicago’s Polish Village, impressive examples of sacred and industrial architecture, and the legendary Olson Waterfall, Avondale is often tagged as “the neighborhood that built Chicago.” Images of America: Avondale and Chicago’s Polish Village sheds light on the little known history of the community, including its fascinating industrial past. From its beginnings as a sleepy subdivision started by a Michigan senator, it became a cultural mecca for Chicago’s Polish community, playing a crucial role in Poland’s struggles for independence. Other people also called Avondale home, such as Scottish proprietors, African American freedmen, Irish activists, Swedish shopkeepers, German tradesmen, Jewish merchants, Filipino laborers, and Italian entrepreneurs; a diversity further enriched as many from the former Soviet Bloc and Latin America settled here. As in other Chicago neighborhoods, change is the one constant, as the arts have brought a renaissance to this working-class corner of the city.

Around Avondale and West Grove by Dolores I. Rowe Book Resume:

Chester County was one of the three original counties established by William Penn, giving it a long history of settlement and growth. Around Avondale and West Grove features historic postcards from Avondale, Baker's Station, Chatham, West Grove, and the surrounding area. Jennersville, located in Penn Township, has close ties to the rose industry begun in London Grove. This area was a rich agricultural district that had many nurseries (including one of world renown), creameries, mushroom farms, horse farms, an experimental farm for research, and other agricultural ventures. White Clay Creek, now a federally designated wild and scenic river, supported many mills. Granite and marble supplied the quarry industry. The township's location along the main highways between Lancaster, Wilmington, Philadelphia, and Baltimore made it an important route for commerce.

Daughter of Gloriavale by Lilia Tarawa Book Resume:

One young woman’s true story of growing up in a repressive cult led by her charismatic grandfather, Hopeful Christian. In an idyllic valley in New Zealand, the Gloriavale Christian Community seemingly flourished. Founded by Lilia Tarawa’s grandfather, Hopeful Christian, Gloriavale was run according to an oppressive interpretation of fundamental Christianity and became a strictly controlled world of arranged marriages, religious control and spiritual abuse. Born into the cult that her grandfather had started, and surrounded by friends and family, Gloriavale seemed like paradise for Lila Tarawa at first. Her mother, Miracle, had grown up in there too and Lilia’s father managed a thriving moss export business, one of several companies owned by the community. As Lilia grew older, however, she began to see and experience the darker side of the cult, with its strict rules, tight control and shocking abuse. As Lilia and her family started to question Gloriavale’s beliefs and practices, Lilia was forced to make a desperate choice: stay with people she loved or flee to a world that she had always been told was evil. In Daughter of Gloriavale, Lilia Tarawa exposes the shocking world of the secretive cult and details her heart-wrenching journey to break free, find happiness and discover her own strength.

A History Lover's Guide to Baltimore by Brennen Jensen,Tom Chalkley Book Resume:

Neither southern nor northern, Baltimore has charted its own course through the American experience. The spires of the nation's first cathedral rose into its sky, and the first blood of the Civil War fell on its streets. Here, enslaved Frederick Douglass toiled before fleeing to freedom and Billie Holiday learned to sing. Baltimore's clippers plied the seven seas, while its pioneering railroads opened the prairie West. The city that birthed "The Star-Spangled Banner" also gave us Babe Ruth and the bottle cap. This guide navigates nearly three hundred years of colorful history--from Johns Hopkins's earnest philanthropy to the raucous camp of John Waters and from modest row houses to the marbled mansions of the Gilded Age. Let local authors Brennen Jensen and Tom Chalkley introduce you to Mencken's "ancient and solid" city.

Steven Spielberg by Joseph McBride Book Resume:

Until the first edition of Steven Spielberg: A Biography was published in 1997, much about Spielberg’s personality and the forces that shaped it had remained enigmatic, in large part because of his tendency to obscure and mythologize his own past. But in this first full-scale, in-depth biography of Spielberg, Joseph McBride reveals hidden dimensions of the filmmaker’s personality and shows how deeply personal even his most commercial work has been. This new edition adds four chapters to Spielberg’s life story, chronicling his extraordinarily active and creative period from 1997 to the present, a period in which he has balanced his executive duties as one of the partners in the film studio DreamWorks SKG with a remarkable string of films as a director. Spielberg’s ambitious recent work—including Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, A. I. Artifucial Intelligence, Minority Report, The Terminal and Munich—has continually expanded his range both stylistically and in terms of adventurous, often controversial, subject matter. Steven Spielberg: A Biography brought about a reevaluation of the great filmmaker’s life and work by those who viewed him as merely a facile entertainer. This new edition guides readers through the mature artistry of Spielberg’s later period in which he manages, against considerable odds, to run a successful studio while maintaining and enlarging his high artistic standards as one of America’s most thoughtful, sophisticated, and popular filmmakers.

The Rural Nurse by Deana Molinari, PhD, MS, RN, CNE,Angeline Bushy, PhD, RN, FAAN Book Resume:

"Transitioning to rural practice can be daunting for both experienced nurses and new graduates who have an urban orientation and are accustomed to specialized practice with abundant health care resources. Since most nursing education programs and practicing nurses are located in urban settings, programs are needed to prepare nurses who choose rural practice. In their book, Dr. Molinari and Dr. Bushy provide excellent examples of practice models from North America, New Zealand, and Australia with curricula that address transition issues. The text makes a significant contribution to the discussion about how to best prepare nurses for rural practice and will be of interest to administrators, educators, and clinicians. From the Foreward by Charlene A. Winters, PhD, APRN, ACNS-BC Associate Professor Montana State University College of Nursing This is the only volume to address the pressing need for practical information about transitioning from an urban-based nursing education or practice to a rural health care environment. It provides successful strategies that nurses in rural settings can use to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative programs that will meet the needs of individual rural communities. The book details current rural nursing transition-to-practice trends and issues, national standards, and evidence-based model programs worldwide. Rural practice culture is described along with professional education issues, competency, patient care, and safety. Chapters are presented in easy-to-access formats that offer ready solutions for problems commonly encountered in rural practice such as nurse recruitment and retention. In addition to health care delivery issues for specific rural populations, the book presents program descriptions from local to state levels, including locally developed education programs, urban hospital systems outreach to rural facilities, universities collaborating with rural businesses, city-based workshops, statewide competencies tracked by employers, and a distance education program customized by rural agencies. Case studies demonstrate how rural facilities-even the smallest and most isolated-are advancing health care through nurse support. The text will be of value to rural nursing staff developers, critical access hospitals and community clinic administrators, rural professional organizations, small urban health facilities, continuing education providers, nursing workforce centers, and graduate programs. Key Features: The first transition from academia-to-practice guide for rural nursing Charts evidence-based successes and offers model programs in different rural settings Provides rural-specific information to facilitate statewide health mandates Features residency program development processes, with tips and tools that work

History of Western Maryland by J. Thomas Scharf Book Resume:

The preparation of "History of Western Maryland", one of the most voluminous works on the history of that party of the United States, imposed a vast responsibility and an immense amount of labor. In the compilation of this history no authority of importance has been overlooked. The author has carefully examined every source of information open to him, and has availed himself of every fact that could throw new light upon, or impart additional interest to, the subject under consideration. Besides consulting the most reliable records and authorities, over fifteen thousand communications were addressed to persons supposed to be in possession of facts or information calculated to add value to the work. Recourse has not only been had to the valuable libraries of Baltimore, Annapolis, Frederick, and Hagerstown, but the author and his agents have visited personally the entire territory embraced in the six counties of Western Maryland, spending much time in each district, examining ancient newspapers, musty manuscripts, family, church, and society records, conversing with the aged inhabitants, and collecting from them orally many interesting facts never before published, and which otherwise, in all probability, would soon have been lost altogether. In addition to the material partly used in the preparation of his " Chronicles" and " History of Baltimore City and County" and " History of Maryland," the author has consulted an immense number of pamphlets, consisting of county and town documents, reports of societies, associations, corporations, and historical discourses, and, in short, everything of a fugitive character that might in any way illustrate the history of Western Maryland. Sketches of the rise, progress, and present condition of the various religious denominations, professions, political parties, and charitable and benevolent institutions, societies, and orders form a conspicuous feature of the work. Manufacturing, commercial, and agricultural interests have also a prominent place. An account of the county school system is also given, and a history of the various institutions of learning of which Western Maryland has every reason to be proud. Many of the facts recorded, both statistical and historical, may seem trivial or tediously minute to the general reader, and yet such facts have a local interest and sometimes a real importance. Considerable space has also been given to biographies of leading and representative men, living and dead, who have borne an active part in the various enterprises of life, and who have become closely identified with the history of Frederick, Washington, Montgomery, Allegany, Carroll, and Garrett Counties. The achievements of the living must not be forgotten, nor must the memories of those who have passed away be allowed to perish. It is the imperative duty of the historian to chronicle their public and private efforts to advance the great interests of society. Their deeds are to be recorded for the benefit of those who follow them; they, in fact, form part of the history of their communities, and their successful lives add to the glory of the Commonwealth. A distinguishing feature of the work is its statistics of the various districts into which the six counties of Western Maryland are divided. In them the reader is brought into close relation with every part of Western Maryland. This is volume four out of six, covering Carroll and Washington Counties.

By a Thread by Jo-Anne Wiley Book Resume:

Erotic Thriller. The girl is barely twenty-two, taking a shortcut through the barrens of the Arizona desert, when the men force her off the road and Bev is taken into the woods. After being gang-raped, she lies naked in the dirt; the men show her the hook, and reality descends. This is more than a sexual assault! Once the steel slithers through, Bev swings head down and is hoisted into the pine boughs, becoming Victim No.7 in Boyko's murder book. Officer Taz Azaria recognizes something in the girl's photograph no man police force ever could: Bev is a sister, and someone is killing lesbians! Taz vows revenge. All indications point to the Brothers Zion, a cult of religious zealots who act outside the realm of the law. They occupy a compound in the desert and are led by their spiritual leader who believes in polygamy. A girl escapes this tyranny; graduates from school, finds a job, makes a life for herself. Can the girl forgive? Forget? No. Thus, a sinner returns to the Brethren to reek her own brand of justice.

The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission by Phillip J. Obermiller,Thomas E. Wagner Book Resume:

In the summer of 1943, as World War II raged overseas, the United States also faced internal strife. Earlier that year, Detroit had erupted in a series of race riots that killed dozens and destroyed entire neighborhoods. Across the country, mayors and city councils sought to defuse racial tensions and promote nonviolent solutions to social and economic injustices. In Cincinnati, the result of those efforts was the Mayor’s Friendly Relations Committee, later renamed the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC). The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission: A History, 1943–2013, is a decade-by-decade chronicle of the agency: its accomplishments, challenges, and failures. The purpose of municipal human relations agencies like the CHRC was to give minority groups access to local government through internal advocacy, education, mediation, and persuasion—in clear contrast to the tactics of lawsuits, sit-ins, boycotts, and marches adopted by many external, nongovernmental organizations. In compiling this history, Phillip J. Obermiller and Thomas E. Wagner have drawn on an extensive base of archival records, reports, speeches, and media sources. In addition, archival and contemporary interviews provide first-person insight into the events and personalities that shaped the agency and the history of civil rights in this midwestern city.

Black Zion by Yvonne Chireau,Nathaniel Deutsch Book Resume:

This volume explores the myriad ways in which African American religions have encountered Jewish traditions, beliefs, and spaces. In contrast to previous works, which have typically focused on the social and political relationship between blacks and Jews, Black Zion places religion at the center of its discussion, thereby illuminating a critically important but little explored aspect of black-Jewish relations in America. The essays gathered here examine groups such as the Nation of Islam and the Hebrew Israelites, individuals such as Martin Luther King, Jr., and Abraham Joshua Heschel, and topics such as the transformation of synagogue space into African American churches and the symbolic role of the Jew in the Haitian religious imagination. This collection draws on sacred texts, interviews, and ethnographic and archival research to discuss the shared elements in black and Jewish sacred life, as well as the development and elaboration of new religious identities by African Americans. Featuring contributions from a group of renowned scholars and writers, this groundbreaking volume reveals a great deal about both African American religions and the meaning of Judaism in the contemporary world. It is essential reading for students of religion, history, cultural studies, black studies, and American studies.

Smarter, schneller, besser by Charles Duhigg Book Resume:

Warum bekommen einige Menschen so viel erledigt – und andere nicht? Um dieser Frage auf den Grund zu gehen, verknüpft Duhigg in seinem neuen Bestseller die aktuellen Erkenntnisse der Neurowissenschaften, der Psychologie und der Behavioral Economics. Dazu kommen Erfahrungsberichte von CEOs, Pädagogen, Vier-Sterne-Generälen, FBI-Agenten, Piloten und Broadway-Liedkomponisten. Er belegt, dass sich die produktivsten Leute, Firmen und Unternehmen nicht nur anders verhalten, sondern auch einen grundlegend anderen Blick auf die Welt und ihre Entscheidungen haben. Smarter, schneller, besser erläutert die Schlüsselkonzepte der Produktivität, von Motivation über Zielsetzung bis hin zur Entscheidungsfindung. Duhigg zeigt in seiner Wissenschaft der Produktivität, wie jeder mehr erledigt bekommen kann, ohne großen Stress und mit geringen Anstrengungen – und so in allen Bereichen einfach smarter, schneller und besser werden kann.

Okosabban, gyorsabban, jobban by Charles Duhigg Book Resume:

Hogyan tudjuk mentális modellek segítségével fenntartani a koncentrációnkat? Miként taníthatjuk meg a céltalan tinédzsereket, hogy önmagukat motiválják? Miért fontosabb az, hogyan működik egy csoport, mint az, hogy kik a tagjai? Sokak szerint a hatékonyság azt jelenti, hogy többet vagy keményebben kell dolgoznunk. A Pulitzer-díjas újságíró, Charles Duhigg szerint erről szó sincs: az igazán hatékony csupán az különbözteti meg elfoglalt társaiktól, hogy megválasztják, mely ambícióik megvalósításán fáradoznak, és mely céljaikat hagyják figyelmen kívül, valamint hogy milyen szervezeti kultúrát alakítanak ki vezetőként a csapatukban. Az Okosabban, gyorsabban, jobban nyolc kulcsfontosságú koncepciója – a motivációtól a célmeghatározáson és a fókuszon át a döntéshozatalig – magyarázatot ad arra, hogy miért érnek el rendkívüli sikereket bizonyos emberek és vállalatok még a gyors változások közepette is. A szerző az idegtudomány, a pszichológia és a viselkedési közgazdaságtan legfrissebb kutatásaira támaszkodva bevezet a termelékenység tudományába, és bemutatja, hogy a mai világban a „hogyan gondolkodunk” fontosabb annál, mint hogy „mit gondolunk”.

Riverview Amusement Park by Dolores Haugh Book Resume:

Every summer from 1904 to 1967, for 63 years, Riverview—the world’s largest amusement park—opened its gates to millions of people from all walks of life. For three generations, the Schmidt’s family park offered rides, shows, food, and music to men, women, and especially children. Riverview survived depressions, two World Wars, labor disputes, Prohibition, and a World’s Fair that threatened to take a great deal of its business. Riverview Amusement Park tells the story of Riverview’s growth from 22 acres and three rides to 140 acres and more than 100 attractions. Through an extensive collection of never-before published images, author Dolores Haugh chronicles the tale of this impressive chapter of Chicago history. Known as the “Roller Coaster Capital of America,” Riverview remained a Chicago landmark until it was unexpectedly closed in 1967.
