Spiral : trapped in the forever war
Danner, Mark, 1958- author
New York : Simon & Schuster, 2016
Introduction -- Bush : imposing the exception : constitutional dictatorship, torture, and us -- Obama : normalizing the exception : terror, fear, and the war without end -- Afterword.

"Trapped in a forever war by 9/11, in Spiral Mark Danner describes a nation that has been altered in fundamental ways. President Bush declared a war of choice and without an exit plan, and President Obama has proven unable to take the country off what he has called its "permanent war footing." The War on Terror has led to fourteen years of armed conflict, the longest war in America's history. Al Qaeda, the organization that attacked us on 9/11, has been "decimated" (the word is Obama's) but replaced by multiple jihadist and terror organizations, including the most notorious--ISIS. Spiral is what we can call a perpetual and continuously widening war that has put the country in a "state of exception." Bush's promise that we have "taken the gloves off" and Obama's inability to define an end game have had a profound effect on us even though the actual combat is fought by a tiny percentage of our citizens. In the name of security, some of our accustomed rights and freedoms are circumscribed. Guantanamo, indefinite detention, drone warfare, enhanced interrogation, torture, and warrantless wiretapping are all words that have become familiar and tolerated. And yet the war goes badly as the Middle East drowns in civil wars and the Caliphate expands and brutalized populations flee and seek asylum in Europe. In defining the War on Terror as boundless, apocalyptic, and unceasing, we have, Danner concludes, "let it define us as ideological crusaders caught in an endless war.""--

The fractured Republic : renewing America's social contract in the Age of Individualism
Levin, Yuval, author
New York : Basic Books, a member of the Perseus Books Group, [2016]
Blinded by nostalgia -- The age of conformity -- The age of frenzy -- The age of anxiety -- The unbundled market -- Subculture wars -- One nation, after all.

Americans today are frustrated and anxious. Our economy is sluggish, and leaves workers insecure. Income inequality, cultural divisions, and political polarization increasingly pull us apart. Our governing institutions often seem paralyzed. And our politics has failed to rise to these challenges. No wonder, then, that Americans -- and the politicians who represent them -- are overwhelmingly nostalgic for a better time. The Left looks back to the middle of the twentieth century, when unions were strong, large public programs promised to solve pressing social problems, and the movements for racial integration and sexual equality were advancing. The Right looks back to the Reagan Era, when deregulation and lower taxes spurred the economy, cultural traditionalism seemed resurgent, and America was confident and optimistic. Each side thinks returning to its golden age could solve America's problems. In The Fractured Republic, Yuval Levin argues that this politics of nostalgia is failing twenty-first-century Americans. Both parties are blind to how America has changed over the past half century -- as the large, consolidated institutions that once dominated our economy, politics, and culture have fragmented and become smaller, more diverse, and personalized. Individualism, dynamism, and liberalization have come at the cost of dwindling solidarity, cohesion, and social order. This has left us with more choices in every realm of life but less security, stability, and national unity. Both our strengths and our weaknesses are therefore consequences of these changes. And the dysfunctions of our fragmented national life will need to be answered by the strengths of our decentralized, diverse, dynamic nation. Levin argues that this calls for a modernizing politics that avoids both radical individualism and a centralizing statism and instead revives the middle layers of society -- families and communities, schools and churches, charities and associations, local governments and markets.

Nitami Podawazwiskweda = The first council fire
Joubert, Joseph Elie, 1944-
Greenfield Center, New York : Bowman Books, [2011]
"A story retold from the memory of the author, written first in his native language of Abenaki and later translated into English, The First Council Fire offers readers a better understanding of Western Abenaki mythology while simultaneously acting as an incredible tool for students of the language. Few traditional stories from the Saint Francis Abenaki have ever been recorded. Joubert takes us back to the earliest times, when man knew nothing of law, and the world was still just taking shape. Great beasts and widespread warfare are overcome by the wisdom and respect of the elders"--Back cover.

The iconic north : cultural constructions of Aboriginal life in postwar Canada
Sangster, Joan, 1952- author
Vancouver ; UBC Press, [2016]
"From 19th century exploration narratives to twentieth century screenings of Nanook of the North, Canada's far North has always commanded a strong fascination, tinged with romanticism and exoticism, for non-Aboriginal peoples. Contact Zones explores a range of Canadian textual and visual depictions of northern Aboriginal life, gender and family relations in the post-World War II period, asking how and why certain images and understandings of Aboriginal life came to dominate, while others were marginalized or suppressed. A critical analysis of the dominant and competing ideological assumptions about northern Aboriginal peoples that circulated through Canadian culture is particularly important for the post-World War II period, as the far North was increasingly occupied by Euro-Canadians, targeted as frontier of economic development, and Aboriginal lives were managed far more intensely by the state than ever before. Images of the Indigenous North were also integral to nation-building efforts which attempted to integrate Aboriginal peoples into an expanded version of Canadian history and citizenship, though still on terms that were ultimately racialized, gendered, and colonial. The resilient and changing constructions of Northern Aboriginal life are explored in Contact Zones through an analysis of television and documentary film, as well as textual sources such as women's travel narratives, popular anthropology and history, fictional writing, and northern testimony from the Royal Commission on the Status of Women. Grounded in archival and documentary research, and informed by interdisciplinary writing on culture, Contact Zones argues that these forms of cultural production must be seen as both instruments and reflections of colonial consolidation. Images of the Aboriginal North tell us more about the viewer than the viewed, yet they still illuminate how the evolving relations of colonial encounter were understood, rationalized, and legitimized. Moreover, the cultural politics of the postwar period left an important legacy for the present, and thus continue to have an impact on Aboriginal lives in the North."--

Anasazi America : seventeen centuries on the road from center place
Stuart, David E
Albuquerque : University of New Mexico Press, [2014]
Prologue : Daniel's question -- The rhythms of civilization -- The roots of Anasazi society -- The role of agriculture. Featured research. Experimental comparison : stone boiling versus pot boiling / Mike Smith, Stella Kemper, Roy Huddleston, and T. Bradley-Varner ; Estimating early Four Corners population growth : a preliminary model / Christine Du Bois -- The rise of the Chaco Anasazi -- The Chaco phenomenon / David E. Stuart and Jenny (Lund) Sherman. Featured research. Four Corners farming : strategy, risks, and crop-calorie yields / Jenny (Lund) Sherman -- The fall of Chacoan society. Featured research. Burial goods at small and large Chacoan sites . Holland Sutton and Louis Wilcox ; Babies are expensive : farming and population growth / David E. Stuart ; Long story short : Stuart on Chaco / David E. Stuart -- The upland period -- Creation of Pueblo society. Featured research. Bone morphology, labor intensity, and economic behavior at Pecos Pueblo / James Medina and Elliott Hubbard -- Sustainable and enduring communities -- Epilogue : The spirit of community.

"At the height of their power in the late eleventh century, the Chaco Anasazi dominated a territory in the American Southwest larger than any European principality of the time. Developed over the course of centuries and thriving for over two hundred years, the Chacoans' society collapsed dramatically in the twelfth century in a mere forty years. David E. Stuart incorporates extensive new research findings through groundbreaking archaeology to explore the rise and fall of the Chaco Anasazi and how it parallels patterns throughout modern societies in this new edition. Adding new research findings on caloric flows in prehistoric times and investigating the evolutionary dynamics induced by these forces as well as exploring the consequences of an increasingly detached central Chacoan decision-making structure, Stuart argues that Chaco's failure was a failure to adapt to the consequences of rapid growth--including problems with the misuse of farmland, malnutrition, loss of community, and inability to deal with climatic catastrophe. Have modern societies learned from the experience and fate of the Chaco Anasazi, or are we risking a similar cultural collapse?"--

New England bound : slavery and colonization in early America
Warren, Wendy (Professor of history), author
New York : Liveright Publishing Corporation, [2016]
The cause of her grief -- A world that does wrong. Beginning ; The key of the Indies ; Unplanting and replanting -- Likely that of New England. Visible slaves ; Intimate slavery ; The law of the land -- Backing into modernity. The selling of Adam ; A thousand such fellows.

"Based on new evidence, Warren links the growth of the northern colonies to the Atlantic slave trade, demonstrating how New England's economy derived its vitality from the profusion of slave-trading ships coursing through its ports. Warren documents how Indians were systematically sold into slavery in the West Indies and reveals how colonial families like the Winthrops were motivated not only by religious freedom but also by their slave-trading investments. New England Bound punctures the myth of a shining 'City on a Hill,' forcefully demonstrating that the history of American slavery can no longer confine itself to the nineteenth-century South."--Publisher's Web site.

White rage : the unspoken truth of our racial divide
Anderson, Carol author
New York, NY : Bloomsbury USA, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2016
Prologue: Kindling -- Reconstructing reconstruction -- Derailing the Great Migration -- Burning Brown to the ground -- Rolling back civil rights -- How to unelect a black President -- Epilogue: Imagine.

"As Ferguson, Missouri, erupted in August 2014, and media commentators across the ideological spectrum referred to the angry response of African Americans as 'black rage, ' historian Carol Anderson wrote a remarkable op-ed in the Washington Post showing that this was, instead, 'white rage at work. With so much attention on the flames, ' she writes, 'everyone had ignored the kindling.' Since 1865 and the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment, every time African Americans have made advances towards full participation in our democracy, white reaction has fueled a deliberate and relentless rollback of their gains. The end of the Civil War and Reconstruction was greeted with the Black Codes and Jim Crow; the Supreme Court's landmark 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision was met with the shutting down of public schools throughout the South while taxpayer dollars financed segregated white private schools; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 triggered a coded but powerful response, the so-called Southern Strategy and the War on Drugs that disenfranchised millions of African Americans while propelling presidents Nixon and Reagan into the White House. Carefully linking these and other historical flash points when social progress for African Americans was countered by deliberate and cleverly crafted opposition, Anderson pulls back the veil that has long covered actions made in the name of protecting democracy, fiscal responsibility, or protection against fraud, rendering visible the long lineage of white rage. Compelling and dramatic in the unimpeachable history it relates, White Rage will add an important new dimension to the national conversation about race in America"--

#IdleNoMore : and the remaking of Canada
Coates, Kenneth, 1956-
Regina, Saskatchewan : University of Regina Press, [2015]
Quiet no more -- Mobilizing an awakening -- The roots of Aboriginal anger and hope -- The Round Dance revolution -- The Ottawa distraction and the complicated evolution of Idle No More -- The winter of the discontented -- What happened to Sovereignty Summer? -- Idle No More and the technologies of mass mobilization.

Idle No More bewildered many Canadians. Launched by four women in Saskatchewan in reaction to a federal omnibus budget bill, the protest became the most powerful demonstration of Aboriginal identity in Canadian history. Thousands of Aboriginal people and their supporters took to the streets, shopping malls, and other venues, drumming, dancing, and singing in a collective voice. It was a protest against generations of injustice, a rallying cry for cultural survival, and a reassertion of Aboriginal identity. --Provided by publisher.

Indians of southern Maryland
Seib, Rebecca, author
Baltimore, Maryland : Maryland Historical Society, [2014]
The territory and its prehistoric people -- The Indian world in the early 1600s -- The early historic period (1608-1633) -- Land-loss and reservation period (1634-ca. 1705) -- Tenant farmers and then landowners again (ca. 1705-ca. 1880) -- Return to formal Indian organizations -- Appendix: A new transcription of Henry Fleet's Account.

"Here at last is the story of Southern Maryland's Native people, from the end of the Ice Age to the present. Intended for a general audience, it explains how they have been adapting to changing conditions--both climatic and human--for all of that time in a way that is jargon-free and readable. The authors, cultural anthropologists with long experience of modern Indian people, convincingly demonstrate that all through their history, Native people have behaved like rational adults, contrary to the common stereotype of Indians. Moreover, in the very early Contact Period at least, some English settlers respected them accordingly. Unfortunately, although they never went to war against the English, they were driven nearly out of existence. Yet some of them refused to leave, and, adapting yet again to a changing world, their descendants are living successfully in Indian communities today." -- Publisher's description

Mesa of sorrows : a history of the Awat'ovi massacre
Brooks, James, 1955- author
New York ; W.W. Norton & Company, [2016]

The Hopi community of Awat'ovi existed peacefully on Arizona's Antelope Mesa for generations. Then one bleak morning in the fall of 1700 raiders from nearby Hopi villages descended on Awat'ovi, slaughtering their neighboring men, women, and children. Why did kinsmen target it for destruction? Drawing on oral traditions, archival accounts, and extensive archaeological research, Brooks unravels the story and its significance, and argues that a perfect storm of internal and external crises revitalized an ancient cycle of ritual bloodshed and purification.
