Snyder, Timothy A.
This is an exploration of the natural arches and pillars of Ohio. The heart of the book is the identification, description, and interpretation of some 83 arches and 18 pillars known to occur in the state. Background information about the bedrock geology of Ohio, the methods of measuring and describing natural arches and pillars, the processes by which these features can be formed, and the ways that they are eventually removed from the landscape provide interesting and valuable context for better understanding the creation, destruction, and study of these unusual elements of the geological landscape. The names and locations of publicly accessible arches and pillars are given. This is the most extensive statewide review of natural arches and pillars known, and it will almost certainly become a model that will inspire and influence similar compilations for other states. 428pp.

Whitehead, John S.
As late as mid-1941 the two territories of Alaska and Hawaii were little known by most Americans. Alaska was seen as a frozen wasteland and Hawaii, an exotic outpost in the mid-Pacific with a multi-racial, particularly Asian, population. The bombing of Pearl Harbor in late 1941 and the capture of two Aleutian Islands in 1942 made the two territories central theatres of World War II. Thousands of Americans came to know Alaska and Hawaii as never before. Once the war ended both territories hoped that statehood would be their reward for such loyal wartime service. Their strategic locations pointed to an increased national involvement in the Pacific and Asia. The 49th and 50th states would eventually be admitted, but it took thirteen years, from 1946 to 1959, to do it. The long delay was caused by many of the events of the Cold War. Both territories became enmeshed in the national politics of anti-communism, radical labour movements, and Arctic policy to resist a Soviet air attack across the polar North. A cadre of statehood supporters emerged to make their case to the nation, including the young Daniel Inouye of Hawaii and Ted Stevens of Alaska, both of whom would become two of the most powerful senators in Congress.

Foreward By Landauer, Susan
Vivid and stimulating, this lush monograph focuses on the watercolours that artist John Grillo created during his three years in San Francisco and his major - but heretofore unrecognised - contributions to the abstract expressionist movement. Each of the more than 60 colour plates is accompanied by an artist's statement that will give readers firsthand insight into the mind and creations of one of the finest 'action painters' in the post-war West Coast scene. Art students learning about watercolour media, art historians studying abstract expressionism, and collectors of abstract expressionist art will be thrilled by this brilliant new contribution to Grillo scholarship. 133pp.
