More a book about Coast Guard heritage than an academic history, this book focuses on a variety of relatively unknown Coast Guardsmen who personify the service's core values. The author highlights the contributions of a variety of individuals, from seamen to admirals on active duty, as well as Reserves, Auxiliarists, and civilian members of Team Coast Guard. These heroes, representing a great diversity in age, sex, race, and ethnicity, set an example worthy of emulation and serve as role models for today's Coast Guard men and women.

Air has always been essential to life: from the atmospheric composition that gave life to the forests and gigantic insects of the Carboniferous age some 300 million years ago to the air that fuels the most important technologies today. We are immersed in a great ocean of air: from internal combustion and jet engines, to modern cities with artificial climates, air is remarkable because it is so widespread and at the same time so intimate. But by managing and manipulating air as a natural resource, humans have been taken to the limits of their survival, brought to the extreme situations of high altitude mountain peaks, and taken to the lows of subterranean worlds and the troughs of new moral depths. Yet rarely are we aware of air and its incredible properties.
Air is an innovative cultural and scientific history that focuses on our attempts to understand air, to engineer and grapple with it, to make sense of it and find meaning in it. For as essential air has been to our philosophical, scientific and technological pursuits, Adey shows that it is through air that the artistic and literary imagination has been lifted. It is also in air that cultures have learnt to express and inspire each other.
Combining established figures such as Joseph Priestley, John Scott Haldane, and Marie Curie with previously unseen heroes and perspectives from painting, literature, and poetry, this richly illustrated book will appeal to anyone interested in the science as well as the culture of this pervasive, often unregarded, yet vital substance.
 



An Aristocracy of Color
Race and Reconstruction in California and the West, 1850–1890

As historian D. Michael Bottoms shows in An Aristocracy of Color, many white Californians saw Reconstruction legislation a threat to the fragile racial hierarchy they had imposed on the state’s legal system during the 1850s. But nonwhite Californians—blacks and Chinese in particular—recognized an unprecedented opportunity to reshape the state’s race relations. Drawing on court records, political debates, and eyewitness accounts, Bottoms brings to life the monumental battle that followed.

This colourfully illustrated book gives a broad introduction to the oeuvre and the life of the Danish CoBrA-artist Asger Jorn, one of the major exponents of Nordic Art. It will be published to coincide with Jorn’s 100th anniversary in 2014, with the support of Museum Jorn in Silkeborg, Denmark.
The new book presents a selection of Jorn’s most important artworks, as well as many original documents—e.g. interviews, letters, photographs, articles by and about Jorn. The material is arranged in a series of chapters with brief introductions by the editor, each of them illustrating a crucial moment in Jorn’s life or a work of particular significance for his career. Among the texts included are for example an excerpt from an unpublished book by his mother on Jorn and the founding declarations of Høst group, CoBrA, Imaginist Bauhaus, Situationist International, and the Institute for Comparative Vandalism.
The book aims to illustrate the diversity of Jorn’s artistic and literary production and reveal his highly ironic and poetic approach to various topics in art, politics and philosophy.

Western contemporary dance and body-mind education have engaged in a pas de deux for more than four decades. The rich interchange of Somatics and dance has altered both fields, but scholarship that substantiates these ideas through the findings of twentieth-century scientific advances has been missing. This book fills that gap and brings to light contemporary discoveries of neuroscience and somatic education as they relate to dance. Drawing from the burgeoning field of “embodiment”—itself an idea at the intersection of the sciences, humanities, arts, and technologies—Body and Mind in Motion highlights the relevance of somatic education within dance education, dance science, and body-mind studies.



Bollywood's India
Hindi Cinema as a Guide to Contemporary India

Bollywood’s India explores the nature of mainstream Hindi cinema, now best known as “Bollywood,” and its non-realistic depictions of everyday life in India. Rachel Dwyer argues that Hindi cinema’s interpretations of India over the last two decades are the most reliable guide to understanding the nation’s changing dreams and hopes, fears and anxieties. She shows how escapism and entertainment function in Bollywood cinema, and what that reveals about Indian life and society.
Bollywood’s India looks at the ways in which Bollywood has imagined and portrayed the unity and diversity of India—what it believes and what it feels; life at home and in public. The book is based on twenty years of watching, teaching and writing about Hindi films, working with filmmakers and discussions with critics and fans. Featuring 80 striking images, the book has much to say to scholars and students of Indian cinema who are curious about the ways in which aspects of Indian life and culture are shown on screen, as well as the general reader and fan of world cinema.
