The Craig family were newcomers to the country, newcomers in the eyes of the natives of Elmhurst, Connecticut, for they had moved there a year and a half ago seeking peace and rest for Mr. Craig, who was slowly recovering from a nervous breakdown. The family’s adventures and problems in making their home in the country were told in Jean Craig Grows Up. Jean, eighteen and ambitious for an artist’s career, had spent part of the previous winter studying in a New York art school and her experiences there were described in Jean Craig in New York.
Focusing on the "children and household tales" collected at the beginning of the 19th century by the brothers Grimm, this text studies translation as an important factor in intercultural relations. The author draws on history, on folklore, on comparative literature and on other fields of study.

What is it like to live with—and love—someone whose death, while delayed, is nevertheless foretold? In Living in Death’s Shadow, Emily K. Abel, an expert on the history of death and dying, examines memoirs written between 1965 and 2014 by family members of people who died from chronic disease. In earlier eras, death generally occurred quickly from acute illnesses, but as chronic disease became the major cause of mortality, many people continued to live with terminal diagnoses for months and even years. Illuminating the excruciatingly painful experience of coping with a family member’s extended fatal illness, Abel analyzes the political, personal, cultural, and medical dimensions of these struggles. The book focuses on three significant developments that transformed the experiences of those dying and their intimates: the passage of Medicare and Medicaid, the growing use of high-tech treatments at the end of life, and the rise of a movement to humanize the care of dying people. It questions the exalted value placed on acceptance of mortality as well as the notion that it is always better to die at home than in an institution. Ultimately, Living in Death’s Shadow emphasizes the need to shift attention from the drama of death to the entire course of a serious chronic disease. The chapters follow a common narrative of life-threatening disease: learning the diagnosis; deciding whether to enroll in a clinical trial; acknowledging or struggling against the limits of medicine; receiving care at home and in a hospital or nursing home; and obtaining palliative and hospice care. Living in Death’s Shadow is essential reading for everyone seeking to understand what it means to live with someone suffering from a chronic, fatal condition, including cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.

"Ginny Anderson is a sure-footed guide, not only to natural treasures in the Bay Area, but to the richness of our inner experience. "Circling San Francisco Bay" brings the outer and inner worlds together. It is a gift to the community of life and a valuable tool for deeper connection-a book that not only informs but also enchants." -Lauren deBoer, executive editor, "EarthLight" magazine "Shamanic naturalist Ginny Anderson takes us to seven sacred sites around San Francisco Bay to gain a better understanding of their connections, and ours, in the complex web of life. This is a celebration of our glorious bioregion, and our responsibility to it-and not a moment too soon." -M. Macha NightMare, priestess, ritualist, and author "Anderson shows us how to find these pillars of our paradise, as we come into a deeper and more spiritual bond with Mother Earth. A numinous, sentient work, and a signpost on the path to true joy in life." -Sandy Miranda, KPFA FM host/producer. "In "Circling San Francisco Bay," a graceful meditation on reciprocity with the natural world, Ginny Anderson shows us that we need look no farther than our own Bay Area greenbelt for the balm that soothes the nerves and feeds the soul." -Lorraine Anderson, editor, "Sisters of the Earth: Women's Prose and Poetry About Nature" "Ginny Anderson's tour of Bay Area sacred mountains elicits the fragrance of native herbs, the sparkle of crystal rock outcroppings, and the wisdom of the natives who dwelled in this land we now call home. "Circling" offers its readers exercises to enhance their sensory awareness of specific sites - and pathways to greater methaphorical insights. At every stop, we read the voices of other Circling participants, telling how the wide vistas and meditations on nature's patterns have opened their souls to new understanding." -Debbie Mytels, Associate Director of Acterra: Action for a Sustainable Earth, and a participant in Circling the Bay 1991

Author: François Lagarde
Publisher: University of Texas Press
The flag of France is one of the six flags that have flown over Texas, but all that many people know about the French presence in Texas is the ill-fated explorer Cavelier de La Salle, fabled pirate Jean Laffite, or Cajun music and food. Yet the French have made lasting contributions to Texas history and culture that deserve to be widely known and appreciated. In this book, François Lagarde and thirteen other experts present original articles that explore the French presence and influence on Texas history, arts, education, religion, and business from the arrival of La Salle in 1685 to 2002. Each article covers an important figure or event in the France-Texas story. The historical articles thoroughly investigate early French colonists and explorers, the French pirates and privateers, the Bonapartists of Champ-d'Asile, the French at the Alamo, Dubois de Saligny and French recognition of the Republic of Texas, the nineteenth-century utopists of Icaria and Reunion, and the French Catholic missions. Other articles deal with French immigration in Texas, including the founding of Castroville, Cajuns in Texas, and the French economic presence in Texas today (the first such study ever published). The remaining articles look at painters Théodore and Marie Gentilz, sculptor Raoul Josset, French architecture in Texas, French travelers from Théodore Pavie to Simone de Beauvoir who have written on Texas, and the French heritage in Texas education. More than seventy color and black-and-white illustrations complement the text.

Coeliac Disease (CD) affects at least 1% of the population. “Classical” CD refers to gastrointestinal presentations with anaemia and gastrointestinal symptoms. CD can, however, present with extraintestinal manifestations, the commonest of which are dermatitis herpetiformis and neurological presentations (e.g., ataxia, neuropathy, encephalopathy). Recognition and research into the pathophysiology of such manifestations is likely to enhance our understanding of this complex autoimmune disorder.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
Eynat-Confino goes beyond the usual consideration of Craig's purported theories of the actor, scenery, and the scene painter to get at the heart of Craig's idea of theater. She draws not only on the research of contemporary Craig scholars but on material hitherto unavailable?his writings and daybooks and the writings of friends. She ties Craig's encounter with Isadora Duncan to a decisive modification in his notion of movement. To have an instrument more controllable than the actor, he invented the über-marionette, a giant puppet. Craig also invented the ?Scene,” a kinetic stage, the ?screens” that brought him worldwide fame were simply an adaptation of this concept. Eynat-Confino argues that a scenario Craig wrote in 1905, here published for the first time, reveals a theosophical system like that of Blake, a system that was the main force motivating Craig's artistic quest. In her final chapter, she carefully examines the psychological, aesthetic, and circumstantial factors that kept Craig from completing his work to bring ?friendliness?humor?love?ease?peace” to the world.
