by Esther Graber

There is a family of 5 daughters, each an outstanding cook--Jane, Ellen, Sibyl, Anne, Susan. And their brother’s wife, Yvonne, who cooks like a dream. Not surprisingly, there’s the matriarch, Esther Rose, also a great cook. The Daily Feast is the collection of irresistibly tasty, but easy-to-prepare recipes which have won their way onto the Graber families’ tables. These are the recipes they prepare for their guests and the dishes they make when the whole extended family gets together. For years, the Graber family cooks have passed their favorite recipes back and forth among themselves as they’ve left their Indiana home and scattered around the world, always learning to make and love the local dishes wherever they’ve lived. But always at the center of the growing collection were their own versions of beloved American dishes. In The Daily Feast, each of the 7 Graber cooks presents 3 complete menus--one for a soup meal, the second for a family week-night supper, and the third for a more elaborate guest dinner. In addition, the Grabers offer menus and recipes for their favorite special-occasion meals. An irresistible sampling of recipes found in The Daily Feast: Penne with Eggplant, Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella and Herbs Baked Chicken Caribe Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro Easy Blender Banana Nut Bread with Jamaica Glaze Cave Creek Carnitas Pear and Gorgonzola Salad with Orange Dressing Lemon-Barbecued Meat Loaves Fresh Tomato Chutney Bourbon-Glazed Salmon with Sesame Seeds Naan Bread Dijon, Bacon, and Potato Salad Grilled Italian Shrimp Skewers Sweet Ricotta Fritters Fresh Strawberry Pie Full-color photography of the finished dishes underlines the family’s daily practice of beauty and good taste around the table!

The Origins of Cauchy's Rigorous Calculus (Dover Books on Mathematics)

by Judith V. Grabiner

This text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students examines the events that led to a 19th-century intellectual revolution: the reinterpretation of the calculus undertaken by Augustin-Louis Cauchy and his peers. These intellectuals transformed the uses of calculus from problem-solving methods into a collection of well-defined theorems about limits, continuity, series, derivatives, and integrals. Beginning with a survey of the characteristic 19th-century view of analysis, the book proceeds to an examination of the 18th-century concept of calculus and focuses on the innovative methods of Cauchy and his contemporaries in refining existing methods into the basis of rigorous calculus. 1981 edition.

Lawrence and the 1912 Bread and Roses Strike

by Susan Grabski Robert Forrant

Incorporated in 1847 on the banks of the Merrimack River, Lawrence, Massachusetts, was the final and most ambitious of New England's planned textile-manufacturing cities developed by the Boston-area entrepreneurs who helped launch the American Industrial Revolution. With a dam and canal system to generate power, by 1912 Lawrence led the world in the production of worsted wool cloth. The Pacific Cotton Mills alone had sales of nearly $10 million and had mechanical equipment capable of producing 800 miles of finished textile fabrics every working day. However, industrial growth was accompanied by worsening health, housing, and working conditions for most of the city's workers. These were the root causes that led to the long, sometimes violent struggle between people of diverse ethnic groups and languages and the city's mill owners and overseers. The 1912 strike--known today as the Bread and Roses Strike--became a landmark moment in history.
