Every year, children and adults alike take to the streets dressed as witches, demons, animals, celebrities, and more. They carve pumpkins and play pranks, and the braver ones watch scary movies and go on ghost tours. There are parades, fireworks displays, cornfield mazes, and haunted houses—and, most important, copious amounts of bite-sized candy. The popularity of Halloween has spread around the globe to places as diverse as Russia, China, and Japan, but its association with death and the supernatural and its inevitable commercialization has made it one of our most misunderstood holidays. How did it become what it is today? In Trick or Treat, Halloween aficionado Lisa Morton provides a thorough history of this spooky day. She begins by looking at how holidays like the Celtic Samhain, a Gaelic harvest festival, have blended with the British Guy Fawkes Day and the Catholic All Souls’ Day to produce the modern Halloween, and she explains how the holiday was reborn in America, where costumes and trick-or-treat rituals have become new customs. Morton takes into account the influence of related but independent holidays, especially the Mexican Day of the Dead, as well as the explosion in popularity of haunted attractions and the impact of such events as 9/11 and the economic recession on the celebration today. Trick or Treat also examines the effect Halloween has had on popular culture through the literary works of Washington Irving and Ray Bradbury, films like Halloween and The Nightmare Before Christmas, and television shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Simpsons. Considering the holiday in the context of its worldwide popularity for the first time, this book will be a treat for any Halloween lover.

In this era of burgeoning memoirists, Dean Dickinson stands out with his thoughtful reflections on a well-considered life. Weaving his charming stories upon a loosely chronological framework, Dickinson presents a compelling view of the post-Depression and World War II era as he comes of age in a variety of American towns and cities. It is obvious he was a keen observer from his earliest years as he recalls in warm and witty reflections the ordinary and often extraordinary people who populated his life. Dickinson traveled to distant places first as an Air Force officer and later as a civilian engineer. As a chief engineer, he participated in building the global military communications network that helped keep the free world safe during the years of the Cold War. Readers will enjoy meeting some of his most colorful relatives and friends, his honorable and accomplished father (upon whose life he modeled his own), and his steadfast homemaker mother. Savor the experiences of visiting exotic Turkish localities, or the lush jungles of Guam and Trinidad. Revisit the spring floral beauty of Washington, D.C., when it was still possible to stroll through its parks and public buildings without being jostled by crowds of tourists. Some of his most wistful memories celebrate the important women in his life, his own large blended family, and his enduring love of books and ideas.
