St. Lawrence County Portraits (NY) (Images of
St. Lawrence County Portraits is a tribute to the citizens who shaped New York State's largest county. St. Lawrence is a county with many natural attributes: immense forests, navigable rivers, and vast tracts of fertile land. All of these have been instrumental in drawing people to the area. Reflected in St. Lawrence County Portraits are the influences of a strong mix of residents, including the Mohawks, who have called this area home for thousands of years, the European settlers, and those who trace their family history to Canada, just across the mighty St. Lawrence River.

A Portion of the People: Three Hundred Years of Southern Jewish
In the year 1800, South Carolina was home to more Jews than any other place in North America. As old as the province of Carolina itself, the Jewish presence has been a vital but little-examined element in the growth of South Carolina's cities and towns, in the economy of slavery and post-slavery society and in the creation of American Jewish religious identity.The record of a landmark exhibition that will change the way people think about Jewish history and American history, A Portion of the People: Three Hundred Years of Southern Jewish Life presents a remarkable group of objects and a provocative investigation of the people and circumstances that produced them. The book and exhibition culminate a seven-year collaboration by the Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina, McKissick Museum of the University of South Carolina, and the College of Charleston. A Portion of the People is an important addition to southern arts and letters.

New York Deco
New York Deco profiles the architecture of the city during its most stylish and dazzling decades: the 1920s and early 1930s. New York City landmarks were born in this age - the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and the Waldorf-Astoria - as well as dozens of lesser-known office buildings and apartment houses. Together, they make the skyline of New York what it is today.Richard Berenholtz's stunning photographs of the finest examples of New York City's art deco architecture are accompanied by text from writers, artists, and personalities of the era, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ogden Nash, and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others.

Antiquity Echoes: A Photographed Tour of Abandoned
An incredible tour through places long forgotten.Antiquity Echoes is a guided tour of some of our nation's most compelling abandoned locations. With a wide spectrum of places covered, readers will be walking the dark halls of an abandoned mental asylum on one page and lost in the overgrowth of an abandoned theme park on the very next. With a focus on history and first-hand accounts by the authors, Antiquity Echoes is far more than a collection of photography and text; it’s an adventure story—one that is enhanced by QR codes linking to videos of these incredible locations.Rusty Tagliareni and Christina Mathews have spent years traveling the country documenting forlorn locations throughout the United States, sharing their deep passion for history and preservation in an effort that has helped generate alliances with many historic societies and preservation organizations.What makes a place worth remembering? Antiquity Echoes ventures that this value derives from the lessons a place can teach us, even long after it has been of use. No matter how forgotten a place has come to be, underneath the overgrowth, cracked paint, and filth of ages, lie countless stories awaiting a sympathetic ear.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan: A Portrait in Letters of an American
When Daniel Patrick Moynihan died in 2003 the "Economist" described him as "a philosopher-politician-diplomat who two centuries earlier would not have been out of place among the Founding Fathers." Though Moynihan never wrote an autobiography, he was a gifted author and voluminous correspondent, and in this selection from his letters Steven Weisman has compiled a vivid portrait of Moynihan's life, in the senator's own words.Before his four terms as Senator from New York, Moynihan served in key positions under Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. His letters offer an extraordinary window into particular moments in history, from his feelings of loss at JFK's assassination, to his passionate pleas to Nixon not to make Vietnam a Nixon war, to his frustrations over healthcare and welfare reform during the Clinton era.This book showcases the unbridled range of Moynihan's intellect and interests, his appreciation for his constituents, his renowned wit, and his warmth even for those with whom he profoundly disagreed. Its publication is a significant literary event.

Historic Photos of Brooklyn
Brooklyn, a magical name, both fantasy and enigma. Yet despite its reputation, Brooklyn consists of provincial, suburban neighborhoods, a small town. For over 300 years, Brooklyn suffered growing pains, but it also offered hospitality, jobs, and recreation, as the photographs in this volume show. Thus, millions crossed the East River and worked hard to build a city. Brooklyn’s image grew and took hold: the sounds of the streets and factories, the heroism, the loyalty, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Brooklyn Dodgers. Historic Photos of Brooklyn shows how Brooklyn’s pride has traveled from decade to decade, and with this continuity, how Brooklyn has matured, building farmhouses, frame houses, skyscrapers, classrooms, brownstones, libraries, mom-and-pop stores, department stores, restaurants, theaters, ships, elevated trains, and airplanes. Today’s residents carry on a tradition started centuries ago, traditions that are highlighted in Historic Photos of Brooklyn.

Sussex County (NJ) (Images of
In 2003, Sussex County celebrates the two hundred fiftieth anniversary of its creation, which took place on June 8, 1753. At that time, all of present-day Sussex and Warren Counties were set aside from Morris County. Warren County was established by the state legislature in 1824, forming the current boundaries of Sussex County. Among the previously unpublished photographs in this history are views of the county's commercial and residential streets, mining and industrial facilities, and business establishments. The vast majority of the unique vintage images included here are drawn from Wayne T. McCabe's extraordinary collection of more than fifteen thousand photographs, glass negatives, postcards, and stereoscopic views of Sussex County.
