DESCRIPTION BOOK:

No one knows for sure when henna was first used for skin decorating, but traces of henna have been found on mummies in Egypt and on cave painting in India dating back thousands of years. While this tradition is still widely used in India, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, it is now gaining popularity throughout the Western world as well. Rooted in the belief that those whose skin is adorned with henna are blessed with good fortune, henna is often associated with rights of passage—coming of age, marriage, and childbirth. Holidays and festivals are times when women and girls decorate their hands and feet, and henna patterns are sometimes unique to these occasions. In some cultures, a bridegroom may be decorated the night before a wedding as well. It is increasingly common for henna parties to be held in the United States, sometimes at weddings, birthday parties, and baby showers—and sometimes just for fun. Henna patterns are seen adorning pop icons like Madonna, Demi Moore, and Prince, and henna artists are becoming an increasingly common sight at street fairs and shops as a temporary and painless alternative to tattoos. Design motifs are included from many different cultures, with background information provided about the symbolism of the designs and motifs.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The prize-winning poet “crafts a clear-eyed narrative of Latina womanhood in this lovely collection ripe with longing, hope, and broken faith” (Publishers Weekly). Winner of the Pleiades Editors’ Prize and Miller Williams Poetry Prize, poet Jennifer Givhan now explores the path from girlhood to womanhood through love, tequila, sex, first periods, late nights, abuse, and heartache. She describes a journey brimming with transformative magic that heals even as it shatters. In four rich movements of poems, Givhan profiles the suffering and the love of a Latina girl who enters motherhood while coming to terms with sexual trauma. Her daughter is a touchstone of healing as she seeks to unravel her own emotions and protect the next generation of women. Givhan uses changing poetic forms to expose what it means to mature in a female body swirling with tenderness, violence, and potential in an uncertain world.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The aim of this book is to make available to the profession of Dental Medicine and other interested parties the extensive literature of the past dealing with the diagnosis, description, causes, treatment and prevention of oral diseases. Drs. Shklar and Chernin are presenting the original texts concerning the diagnosis and management of oral diseases ranging from ancient Egypt through the world of the 20th Century. Until the 19th Century, the management of oral disease was an essential part of medical practice, and the texts on oral disease are to be found in the major medical and surgical treatises. The very first books on dentistry, such as the Artzey Buclein of the 16th century were mere compilations from the classical physicians of Greece and Rome, together with some Arabic texts that have been translated into Latin. Many of the basic texts of the past have already been translated into English, French and German from the original Sanskrit, Greek, Latin, and Arabic. However, a number of important texts have never been translated into English. The authors are presenting all these materials to the English reading professionals in Medicine and Dental Medicine in this 864 page reference book.

Hispanic New York

Hispanic New York
Author: Claudio Iván Remeseira
Release: 2010-06-11
Editor: Columbia University Press
Pages: 576
ISBN: 9780231519779
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Over the past few decades, a wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien group within a "mainstream" and supposedly pure "Anglo" America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latinos have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once celebrated as "the Spanish element of our nationality." Hispanic New York is the first anthology to offer a comprehensive view of this multifaceted heritage. Combining familiar materials with other selections that are either out of print or not easily accessible, Claudio Iván Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latinoization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays on history, demography, racial and ethnic studies, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as José Martí, Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to contemporary writers, such as Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, and Ana Celia Zentella. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Latino components.
