ADIRONDACK WILDLIFE: A Field Guide

Item Description

JAMES M. RYAN, Professor of Biology

The breathtaking six-million-acre Adirondack Park in upstate New York is comprised of a multiplicity of habitats, including over 2,800 lakes and ponds, more than 30,000 miles of running water, and 46 major mountain peaks. Adirondack Wildlife: A Field Guide is, astonishingly, the first authoritative handbook devoted to the natural history and ecology of the Adirondacks and the Park's invertebrates, fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

The book leads the reader on an intimate journey through the Adirondack Park, beginning with the alpine communities above timberline and descending through the conifer and hardwood forests to the wetlands, streams, and lakes. Ryan's crisp and authoritative species-by-species accounts of the park's fauna are fabulously illustrated in color and in black and white. The book is portable and geared towards use in the field. Each chapter concludes with "sources and additional readings;" back matter includes a glossary and species checklists. The park's hundreds of thousands of residents and millions of visitors will profit immeasurably by having the indispensable Adirondack Wildlife at hand.

AFTER THE REVOLUTION

Item Description

CRAIG RIMMERMAN (Contributor), Professor of Public Policy and Political Science

This edited collection of original commissioned essays tells the important story of how interest groups and PACs (Political Action Committees) from business, labor, and other activist organizations have worked with the changing rules governing lobbying and "sea change" provided by the Republican Revolution in 1994 to try to achieve their particular goals. This book shows how Congress and interest groups have interacted, how the current system works, and how certain changes may affect these relationships in the future. The essays, describing the lobbying tactics of business groups like AT&T, labor groups like AFL-CIO, and membership groups like The Sierra Club are written by accomplished political scientists who tell the stories in compelling and provocative ways, and describe how each group has handled the changes under the New Republican Congress. Anyone with an interest in campaigns, elections, and Congress.

Item Description

KANATE DAHOUDA, Professor of French and Francophone studies

Bien des critiques ont noté la présence du phénomène de l’exil dans la littérature des Antilles et dans celle du Québec. Ainsi dans un article consacré à Césaire, Michael Dash relève-t-il que « l’évolution de la poésie antillaise est étroitement liée à l’idée de l’exil ». Cette idée de l’exil, Pierre Nepveu l’identifie, pour sa part, sous la forme d’une métaphore filée dans la conscience littéraire...

In a provocative analysis of public culture and popular concerns, Jodi Dean examines how serious UFO-logists and their pop-culture counterparts tap into fears, phobias, and conspiracy theories with a deep past and a vivid present in American society.

BLACK WOMEN UNDERGRADUATES, CULTURAL CAPITAL, & COLLEGE SUCC

Item Description

Cerri A. Banks, Former Dean of William Smith College and Assistant Professor of Education

Black Women Undergraduates, Cultural Capital, and College Success

This book documents the academic and social success of Black women undergraduates as they negotiate dominant educational and social discourses about their schooling lives. Starting with the premise that Black women undergraduates are not a homogenous group and that they are being successful in college in greater numbers than Black men, this book examines the ways they navigate being traditionally under-prepared academically for college, the discourse of «acting white», and oppressive classroom settings and practices. This work expands the theoretical concept of cultural capital by identifying the abundant and varied forms of cultural capital that Black women undergraduates provide, develop, and utilize as they make their way through college. The discussion of their raced, classed, and gendered experiences challenges the academy to make use of this understanding in its work towards educational equity. This movement has wide-reaching implications for ethos, policy, and practice in higher education.

EVIDENCES

Item Description

JAMES MCCORKLE, Assistant Professor of Africana Studies

Chosen and with an Introduction by Jorie Graham, Evidences is the winner of the sixth annual American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize. In poems that are by turns lyrical, disjunctive, autobiographical, and political, Evidences sifts through residues of landscape and history. The physicality of the language and the invocation of the world of places and things form a meditative process, surveying the conditions of perception and memory, history and grace.
