The methods of Indian basket weaving explained in this excellent manual are the very ones employed by native practitioners of the craft. Members of the Navajo School of Indian Basketry have set down their secrets in clear and simple language, enabling even the beginner to create work that can rival theirs in grace, design, and usefulness.The text begins with basic techniques: choice of materials, preparation of the reed, splicing, the introduction of color, principles and methods of design, shaping the basket and finishing. A great variety of baskets and weaves from many cultures are described in subsequent chapters, such as Lazy Squaw, Mariposa, Toas, Samoan, Klikitat, and Shilo, each accompanied by specific instructions. There are suggestions for the weaving of shells, beads, feathers, fan palms, date palms, and even pine needles, and recipes for the preparation of dyes.Examples of each type of basket are illustrated by photographs, often taken from more than one angle so that the bottom can be seen as well as the top and sides. Close-up photography of the various types of stitching, especially at the crucial stage of beginning the basket, is an invaluable aid to the weaver. In addition, the authors have provided line drawings which are exceptionally clear magnifications of the various weave patterns.Anyone who follows the lessons contained in this book will have a knowledge of basketry unattainable in any other way. They are so lucid and complete that the amateur as well as the experienced weaver will be able to manufacture baskets distinguishable from authentic native articles only in that they were not woven by Indians. For those who merely seek a broader knowledge of American Indian arts, the book provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject of basketry.

"As entertaining as it is thoughtful. . . . Few contemporary writers have Weatherford's talent for making the deep sweep of history seem vital and immediate. " THE WASHINGTON POST After 500 years, the world's huge debt to the wisdom of the Indians of the Americas has finally been explored in all its vivid drama by anthropologist Jack Weatherford. He traces the crucial contributions made by the Indians to our federal system of government, our democratic institutions, modern medicine, agriculture, architecture, and ecology, and in this astonishing, ground-breaking book takes a giant step toward recovering a true American history.
Today, the Indian state claims to embody the values of a stable political democracy, a harmonious territorial unity, and a steadfast religious impartiality. Even many of those critical of the inequalities of Indian society underwrite such claims. The Indian Ideology suggests that the roots of the current ills of the Republic go much deeper, historically. They lie, in the way the struggle for independence culminated in the transfer of power from British rule to Congress in a divided subcontinent, not least in the roles played by Gandhi as the great architect of the movement, and Nehru as his appointed successor, in the catastrophe of Partition. Only an honest reckoning with that disaster, Perry Anderson argues, offers an understanding of what has gone wrong with the Republic since Independence. The "Idea of India," widely diffused not only in the official establishment, but more broadly in mainstream intellectual life, side-steps or suppresses many of these uncomfortable realities, past and present. For its own reasons, much of the left has yet to challenge the upshot: what has come to be the neo-Nehruvian consensus of the time. The Indian Ideology, revisiting the events of over a century in the light of how millions of Indians fare in the Republic today, suggests another way of looking at the country.

"Sleuth Milan Jacovich is working two cases with unsuspected complications." "Case number one comes with a visit from the owner of a small factory who has what he terms a "security problem." Hired to look into the background of one of his clients' employees. Milan discovers that the man is indeed not what he seems. But why isn't he? Milan must dig much deeper into what has turned out to be a very complex situation before he can answer that." "Milan's other case has a very different history. It's winter, the famous Lake Effect is whipping snow and cold onto Cleveland's east side, and on a bench across from Milan's apartment building an aged Native American man has been sitting stolidly for hours and hours, ignoring the brutal weather. The next morning Milan sees that the bench is empty - and then he learns that the old man has been found murdered." "The crime brings Edgar Ettawageshik to Milan; he wants the detective to find out why his grandfather was in Cleveland - and what connection that has to the kidnapping of his infant nephew from their tiny village in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. His first case, the security matter, is forcing Milan to make difficult moral choices. And while the other case gives him an opportunity to assuage some of the guilt he feels for not having done anything about the insistent presence of old Ettawageshik, it also confronts him with the blind hope of grieving parents who look to him for what he's very afraid could only be a miracle. Milan Jacovich will need all his skills, and even more luck, if he is going to be able to write a satisfactory "closed" on either of these tangled affairs."

Indiana Jones has landed his first teaching post, in the archaeology department at London University. His brightest--and prettiest--student is a twenty-year-old Scottish girl, Deirdre Campbell, who claims she's uncovered a golden scroll, proof of the true existence of Merlin, sorcerer of myth and legend. Indy's intrigued by the thesis ... and by Deirdre. So, too, is member of Parliament Adrian Powell. He's seeking to resurrect the ancient order of the Druids, whose secrets of power could pave his way to world conquest. But first he needs the scroll ... and he's willing to kill to get it. Where there's magic, mystery, and murder, Indy goes to the head of the class. Dropping his books and picking up his bullwhip, he joins Deirdre on an action-packed chase across Britain, from the peril-filled caves of Scotland to the savage dance of the giants at Stonehenge--where Merlin's secret will finally be revealed. But not before Indy gets a lesson in love from Deirdre ... and a lesson in hate from a maniac who means to rule the world.
