LaGuardia Library Book of the Week: Rain


Rain: A Natural and Cultural History, by Cynthia Barnett

Rain

“Spanning a period of more than 4 billion years, environmental journalist Cynthia Barnett’s eye-opening book is enough to make even the most fervent rain-hater experience a change of heart. From the storms of biblical proportions that lashed the Earth when it was newly formed to why Woody Allen prefers to shoot against a rainy backdrop, Barnett addresses rain’s role in science, culture and history with a forensic eye for detail and a good sense of humour.
Rain is peppered with facts but remains succinct and engaging. Presenting water as a unifying force in a fractured world, it will fascinate, delight and alarm, and perhaps even encourage us to pay more attention to changing weather patterns.insights, Entanglement will change the way you see hair forever.”

- Winter, Lydia. “‘Rain: A Natural and Cultural History’, by Cynthia Barnett.” Financial Times, 5 May 2015, http://www.ft.com/content/619db072-006f-11e5-a908-00144feabdc0.

Faculty Fridays: Avoiding “Predatory” Publishers (part I)

With the demise of Beall’s list of “predatory” publishers, how can scholars avoid fraudulent journals?
Heed some warning signs that warrant a closer look:

  • Were you solicited by email?
  • Is the journal’s scope broad (so it can accept more submissions)?
  • Does it promise rapid and easy publication?

LaGuardia Library Book of the Week: Make Art Not War


Make Art Not War: Political Protest Posters from the Twentieth Century, edited by Ralph Young

Make Art Not War

“Two of the most recognizable images of twentieth-century art are Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica” and the rather modest mass-produced poster by an unassuming illustrator, Lorraine Schneider “War is Not Healthy for Children and Other Living Things.” From Picasso’s masterpiece to a humble piece of poster art, artists have used their talents to express dissent and to protest against injustice and immorality.
As the face of many political movements, posters are essential for fueling recruitment, spreading propaganda, and sustaining morale. Disseminated by governments, political parties, labor unions and other organizations, political posters transcend time and span the entire spectrum of political affiliations and philosophies.
Drawing on the celebrated collection in the Tamiment Library’s Poster and Broadside Collection at New York University, Ralph Young has compiled an extraordinarily visceral collection of posters that represent the progressive protest movements of the twentieth Century: labor, civil rights, the Vietnam War, LGBT rights, feminism and other minority rights.
Make Art Not War can be enjoyed on aesthetic grounds alone, and also offers fascinating and revealing insights into twentieth century cultural, social and political history.”
