Architecture and Artifacts of the Penn. Germans by C. Falk
Cynthia Falk explores the relationship between ethnicity and the buildings, personal belongings, and other cultural artifacts of early Pennsylvania German immigrants and descendants. Such “material culture” has been the basis of stereotyping Pennsylvania Germans almost since their arrival. Falk warns us against the typical scholarly overemphasis on Pennsylvania Germans’ assimilation to an English way of life. Rather, she demonstrates that more than anything, socioeconomic status and religious affiliation influenced the character of the material culture of Pennsylvania Germans. Her work also shows how early Pennsylvania Germans defined their own identities.

Economic Issues Today by Wade L. Thomas
Written in non-technical, everyday language that is accessible to the undergraduate audience, and requiring no background in economic analysis, this acclaimed text provides a unique approach to understanding what the practice of economics is all about. The authors address fourteen current economic issues, covering both micro- and macro-economics, and offer analyses and proposed solutions for each from Conservative, Liberal, and Radical perspectives. This new edition incorporates critical changes in economic policy since the last edition that affect every issue covered in the text. Tables have been updated throughout to include current economic data, and an all-new section on social policy frames the current debate about the Social Security system. The book's unique approach stimulates critical thinking on everyday issues that traditional texts either ignore or present as "settled" debates. It helps students to understand the dual role that ideology and logical/empirical argumentation play in economics. Issues are presented as stand-alone subjects that can be read in any sequence and used to supplement a wide range of principles of economics texts. An instructor's manual with a test bank and discussion questions is available to professors who adopt the text, and Power Point downloads are available as teaching aids. The text is also available in two separate volumes: Microeconomics Today and Macroeconomics Today.

Emerging Moral Vocabularies by Brian Lowe
A CENTRAL OBSERVATION OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES HAS BEEN THAT THE MODERN AGE IS ONE OF CONSTANT CHANGE. THIS CHANGE HAS RESULTED IN THE EMERGENCE OF NEW MORAL AND ETHICAL CLAIMS AND UNDERSTANDINGS, WHICH AUTHOR BRIAN M. LOWE REFERS TO AS "MORAL VOCABULARIES." LOWE SKILLFULLY SEEKS TO EXPLAIN CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH CERTAIN MORAL VOCABULARIES ARE MORE LIKELY TO GAIN ACCEPTANCE IN THE WIDER HOST SOCIETY. BY FOCUSING ON THE ANIMAL RIGHTS AND TOBACCO CONTROL MOVEMENTS, THIS ABSORBING WORK EXPLORES THE PROCESS OF MORALIZATION AND THE FRAGMENTARY NATURE OF THE EMERGENCE OF NEW FORMS OF MORAL AND ETHICAL MEANINGS WITHIN THE WIDER HOST SOCIETY. EMERGING MORAL VOCABULARIES CHALLENGES THE BROAD ASSERTION THAT WESTERN POST-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETIES ARE INEVITABLY BECOMING MORE INDIVIDUALISTIC AND SELF-CENTERED, AND INSTEAD ENCOURAGES SCHOLARS TO EXAMINE EMERGING FORMS OF MORAL AND ETHICAL MEANINGS, WHICH CREATE NEW MORAL BOUNDARIES. BRIAN M. LOWE IS ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK, ONEONTA.

Folktales Retold by Amie Doughty
Folktales and fairy tales are living stories; as part of the oral tradition, they change and evolve as they are retold from generation to generation. In the last thirty years, however, revision has become an art form of its own, with tales intentionally revised to achieve humorous effect, send political messages, add different cultural or regional elements, try out new narrative voices, and more. These revisions take all forms, from short stories to novel-length narratives to poems, plays, musicals, films and advertisements. The resulting tales paint the tales from myriad perspectives, using the broad palette of human creativity. This study examines folktale revisions from many angles, drawing on examples primarily from revisions of Western European traditional tales, such as those of the Grimm Brothers and Charles Perrault. Also discussed are new folktales that combine traditional storylines with commentary on modern life. The conclusion considers how revisionists poke fun at and struggle to understand stories that sometimes made little sense to start with.

Foragers of the Terminal Pleistocene by Renee Walker
These essays cast new light on Paleoindians, the first settlers of North America. Recent research strongly suggests that big-game hunting was but one of the subsistence strategies the first humans in the New World employed and that they also relied on foraging and fishing. Written in an accessible, engaging style, these essays examine how migratory waterfowl routes may represent one impetus for human migration into the Americas, analyze settlement and subsistence in the major regions of the United States, and reinvestigate mammoth and bison bone beds in the western Plains and the Rocky Mountains to illuminate the unique nature of Paleoindian hunting in that region. The first study of Paleoindian subsistence on a continental scale, this collection posits regional models of subsistence and mobility that take into account the constraints and opportunities for resource exploitation within each region: Research on the Gault site in Texas reveals new subsistence strategies there, while data from the Shawnee-Minisink site in Pennsylvania connects seed collecting with fishing in that region, and plant remains from Dust Cave in Alabama provide important information about subsistence. With research ranging from fauna and lithic data from Paleoindian campsites in Florida that illuminate subsistence technologies and late megamammals to an analysis of plant remains from the eastern United States that results in a revised scheme of environmental changes, this volume serves as an important sourcebook and guide to the latest research on the first humans in North America.
