This volume offers an overview of the controversies surrounding the use of Native American mascots for sports teams over the past 40 years. It trains its attention on education to reveal the significance of the continued use of such symbols, artifacts, and identities and the efforts to combat them. A collection of primary documents and an extensive list of resources for further study are also included. Expounding the dangers and damages associated with their continued use, the editors created a guide for anyone with an interest in race relations. Sports mascots have been a tradition for decades. According to this work, once considered a benign practice, numerous studies have proved just the opposite that the use of Native American mascots in educational institutions has perpetuated a shameful history of racial insensitivity.

Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round, a sequel to author/photographer Ron Faiola's wildly popular first book on the topic (now in its sixth printing), gives readers a peek inside 50 additional clubs from across the Badger State. Traveling from the Northwoods to Beloit, Faiola documents some of the most exceptional and long-lived restaurants that embrace the decades-old supper club tradition. These are largely family-owned establishments that believe in old-fashioned hospitality, slow-paced dining, and good scratch cooking. In this guide, readers will find interviews with supper club proprietors and customers as well as a bounty of photographs of classic dishes, club interiors and other scenes from Faiola’s extensive travels. Despite the chain restaurants that continue to dominate the culinary landscape, supper clubs across the Midwest are thriving today in many of the same ways as they have for the past 80 years. The term "supper club" has even been borrowed recently by the burgeoning underground restaurant scene, which champions an upscale-yet-communal dining experience similar to that offered by traditional supper clubs. Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round is a new, intimate look at this unique American tradition, one that invites supper club enthusiasts and newcomers alike to enjoy a second helping of everything that made Wisconsin Supper Clubs such a hit.
Everday life and everyday sorrow are the materials Tom Nahra shapes into images that illuminate the trajectory of our time on the planet. He celebrates beauty in spirit and form. Mortality looms at our back, as it must for everyone. Failure fuels energy to try again. Hope, there's always hope. And steadfast Christian faith. Here, also, is the trope of bemused bewilderment shared by every immigrant who has not yet learnt to integrate with the brash, loud, rushing pell-mell American world he has stepped into and strives to make comprehensible and a home. There is the loneliness felt by all who leave their country and culture far behind. The emotional sting that is attached to vast distances separating faces loved and remembered. Smells and tastes savored. "What am I?" is a classic immigrant's lament. The poetic perspective echoes life's progression from the optimism of youth to fears, doubts and physical travails as we travel through maturity to old age. Written over a lifetime, Nahra's poetry embraces the world in all its mysteries, contradictions, and enigmas. English is the poet's second language, learnt relatively late when he was already a young adult. The Levant informed his imagination. Cerulean skies, the Mediterranean Sea, the intimacy of a Lebanese Christian family, close-knit in a village life about as remote from the bustle of America as it is possible to be. It is because of his Lebanon birthplace that brings the sea so often into his work. The sea as redemption, as mystery, as wonder and vast grave.
