Most of us know a bit about what passes for good manners - holding doors open, sending thank-you notes, no elbows on the table. We certainly know bad manners when we see them. But where has this patchwork of beliefs and behaviours come from? How did manners develop? How do they change? And why do they matter so much to us? In examining our manners, Henry Hitchings delves into the English character and investigates our notions of Englishness. Sorry! presents an amusing, illuminating and quirky audit of English manners. From basic table manners to appropriate sexual conduct, via hospitality, chivalry, faux pas and online etiquette, Hitchings traces the history of our country's customs and courtesies. Putting under the microscope some of our most astute observers of humanity, including Jane Austen and Samuel Pepys, he uses their lives and writings to pry open the often downright peculiar secrets of the English character. Hitchings' blend of history, anthropology and personal journey helps us understand our bizarre and contested cultural baggage - and ourselves.

From body art to baseball cards, comics to cathedrals, pie charts to power ballads . . . students need help navigating today’s media-rich world. And educators need help teaching today’s new media literacy. To be literate now means being able to read, write, listen, speak, view, and represent across all media—including both print and nonprint texts, such as film, TV, podcasts, websites, visual art, fashion, architecture, landscape, and music. This book offers secondary teachers in all content areas a flexible, interdisciplinary approach to integrate these literacies into their curriculum. Students form cooperative learning groups to evaluate media texts from various perspectives (artist, producer, sociologist, sound mixer, economist, poet, set designer, and more) and show their thinking using unique graphic organizers aligned to the Common Core State Standards

This panoramic account of 1776 chronicles the other revolutions unfolding that year across North America, far beyond the British colonies. In this unique history of 1776, Claudio Saunt looks beyond the familiar story of the thirteen colonies to explore the many other revolutions roiling the turbulent American continent. In that fateful year, the Spanish landed in San Francisco, the Russians pushed into Alaska to hunt valuable sea otters, and the Sioux discovered the Black Hills. Hailed by critics for challenging our conventional view of the birth of America, West of the Revolution “[coaxes] our vision away from the Atlantic seaboard” and “exposes a continent seething with peoples and purposes beyond Minutemen and Redcoats” (Wall Street Journal).

In Voices and Views Debórah Dwork has brought together many of the most important figures in Jewish scholarship to produce a definitive collection of essays, documents, and images on the Holocaust. Beginning with a brief survey of historical anti-Judaism and anti-Semitism, the volume includes chapters such as "Jews, Gentiles, and Germans," "World War I and the Interwar Period," "The National Socialist Regime," "Refugee Policy," one chapter each on gentile and Jewish life under German occupation, "The Machinery of Death and the Murderers," one chapter each on rescue and rescuers, and a final chapter. "After the Holocaust." Each of these chapters offers an unparalleled selection of powerful images (many of them rare), primary documents—Richard Wagner on Judaism in music, for example, and "The Ensatzgruppen Reports: Selections from the Dispatches of the Nazi Death Squads’ Campaign against the Jews in Occupied Territories of the Soviet Union July 1941—January 1943"—and writings by major figures such as Primo Levi, David Wyman, Saul Friedländer, and others. Sponsored by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, Voices and Views is an educational resource for teaching about the Holocaust that also speaks to the cataclysm’s deeper questions: What can we teach the young about the Holocaust that can strengthen their morale, morals, and wisdom, and thus provide tools to live in a scarred universe? What sparks of light can be sifted from the ashes of the crematoria? While not avoiding the grim horrors of the Holocaust, the editors of this volume felt it was important to focus on rescuers—the Righteous—to a greater degree than was their proportional impact during the war because of their moral significance. Voices and Views is thus a comprehensive reference work but also a volume with an inspirational purpose. Contributors include William Nicholls, Robert Wistrich, Eugen Weber, Klaus Fischer, Ezra Mendelsohn, Tracy Koon, Wolfgang Sofsky, William Carr, Marion Kaplan, Henry Feingold, David Wyman, Bernard Wasserstein, Michael Marrus, Margaret Collins Weitz, Leni Yahil, Isaiah Trunk, Yisrael Gutman, Christopher Browning, Raul Hilberg, Saul Friedländer, Philip Hallie, Yehuda Bauer, Nechama Tec, Miep Gies, Carol Rittner, Sondra Myers, Mark Wyman, and Primo Levi.

The Milwaukee Art Museum’s collection of American folk art reflects the art worlds’ increasing interest in the genre. A major part of the collection comes from Michael and Julie Hall’s extensive collection, acquired by the museum in the early 1990s. Parts of the collection went on nation-wide tour during 1993–1995, with this volume clearly explaining the importance of the genre, the vision of the collectors, and the beauty of the pieces of art, all produced by self-taught artists. Distributed for the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
