In the Pre-dawn hours on May 10, 1980 two youths were driving down a Mississippi Street when they noticed smoke billowing off in the distance at a house fire. The two youths reported the fire to the nearest fire station at 3:28 a.m. that was located only three blocks from the house engulfed in flames. The home on fire was that of U.S. Navy Veteran Dentist Dr. Tom Boring and he died in the fire as a result of a Cold Case murder mystery that stunned everyone in the Mississippi Delta and people within the fine art photography community. Tom had been involved throughout his life in a number of controversies with the law. Twice within his lifetime he had his Dental license revoked for convictions concerning manufacturer or possession of marijuana. Tom's unsolved murder is just one episode in his highly unconventional private life that involved guns, alcohol, drugs and women. His Legacy is best known for fine art color photographs his friend photographer William Eggleston brought kicking and screaming into the art world over 40 years ago. His life story detailed in the pages of this book is about what happened before, during, and after the famous photograph (Untitled) Greenwood, Mississippi 1973, informally known as "The Red Ceiling", was taken by William Eggleston in Tom's home. In the photo shows a naked light bulb in the center of a bright red ceiling. "The red ceiling is simply a red ceiling with diagonal cables and a light bulb hanging down in the middle. There's a Kamasutra freeze. There's something pornographic here almost. It's the sight of a murder. A horrible murder. The walls are bleeding. It could also be witnessed by a fly. You know buzzing around that bulb in the abstinent heat. The room probably stinks. One picture of a red ceiling and it can carry all that. It is about surface and it's not. It is about what it depicts and it's not. It is about something much more." Quote by Mark Holborn from Imagine/The Colorful Mr. Eggleston The True Legacy of Dr. Tom Boring will forever transform the way you see and get you closer to photographs taken in the 1970's of Tom and his home by William Eggleston, while recreating the crime scene of where and how he was murdered in the Mississippi Delta.

The objectives of this book are to describe the traditional socio-political organization of Yap and to examine the dynamic interplay of traditional roles, rules, and values with those introduced in the contemporary situation of American-directed change. The ultimate considerations undertaken here are the political, social, and cultural adaptations and consequences of this directed change. The analytical focus for both traditional and contemporary situations includes the processes of succession and accession to leadership, of selection and rejection of leaders, of initiation, organization and direction of activities; and of decision-making.

How the Vietnam War changed American art By the late 1960s, the United States was in a pitched conflict in Vietnam, against a foreign enemy, and at home—between Americans for and against the war and the status quo. This powerful book showcases how American artists responded to the war, spanning the period from Lyndon B. Johnson’s fateful decision to deploy U.S. Marines to South Vietnam in 1965 to the fall of Saigon ten years later. Artists Respond brings together works by many of the most visionary and provocative artists of the period, including Asco, Chris Burden, Judy Chicago, Corita Kent, Leon Golub, David Hammons, Yoko Ono, and Nancy Spero. It explores how the moral urgency of the Vietnam War galvanized American artists in unprecedented ways, challenging them to reimagine the purpose and uses of art and compelling them to become politically engaged on other fronts, such as feminism and civil rights. The book presents an era in which artists struggled to synthesize the turbulent times and participated in a process of free and open questioning inherent to American civic life. Beautifully illustrated, Artists Respond features a broad range of art, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, performance and body art, installation, documentary cinema and photography, and conceptualism.

Born in 1867 just west of Hayesville, North Carolina, George W. Truett grew up to be one of the outstanding Baptist preachers of the twentieth century. He moved to Whitewright, Texas, in 1889 and planned to practice law. His Baptist church in Whitewright, however, ordained him to the ministry in 1890, ignoring his vigorous protest against such action. (18971944) as the church's pastor. Best known for his advocacy of religious liberty, Truett also helped found Baylor Hospital in Dallas. Less known about Truett was his understanding of stewardship. Money meant nothing to him, and in twenty-three of his forty-seven years in Dallas, he led his church to spend more money on missions and benevolences than on its own ministries.

Following the discovery in Europe in the late 1850s that humanity had roots predating known history and reaching deep into the Pleistocene era, scientists wondered whether North American prehistory might be just as ancient. And why not? The geological strata seemed exactly analogous between America and Europe, which would lead one to believe that North American humanity ought to be as old as the European variety. This idea set off an eager race for evidence of the people who might have occupied North America during the Ice Age—a long, and, as it turned out, bitter and controversial search. In The Great Paleolithic War, David J. Meltzer tells the story of a scientific quest that set off one of the longest-running feuds in the history of American anthropology, one so vicious at times that anthropologists were deliberately frightened away from investigating potential sites. Through his book, we come to understand how and why this controversy developed and stubbornly persisted for as long as it did; and how, in the process, it revolutionized American archaeology.

R.S.S. Baden-Powell, who founded the Boy Scouts movement in 1908, was a British military hero during the Boer War and an author, actor, artist, spy, sportsman, and female impersonator. In this absorbing and humane account of Baden-Powell’s extraordinary life, Tim Jeal reveals for the first time the complex figure behind the saintly public mask, showing him to be a man of both dazzling talents and crippling secret fears. Reviews of the earlier edition: “Baden-Powell’s life story is as rich and engrossing as any of his memorable campfire yarns . . . a monumental biography.”—Zara Steiner, New York Times Book Review “In an age of good biographies, here is one that deserves to be called great . . . a magnificent book.”—Piers Brendon, Mail on Sunday “Jeal’s Baden-Powell is brave and self-seeking, devious and honorable, a domestic paragon whose repressed homosexuality fired his career, a soldier of genius who ultimately rejected militarism. . . . The story that Tim Jeal has to tell is epic, funny, and touching.”—Philip Oakes, New Statesman “Superb.”—Ian Buruma, New York Review of Books
