This landmark publication, newly available in paperback, is the culmination of ten years of development and research. Working with an international expert panel of 150 consultants and 79 researchers, Nathalie Herschdorfer has triumphed in creating the first source of information for all scholars, practitioners and collectors of photography to turn to in the future.

These entries encompass both familiar terms ("abracadabra," "poltergeist," "spells," "vampire") and more arcane topics ("Martian language," "bottle imps," "magic darts," "tinker's talk").

PaleoBase is a new initiative in the presentation of systematic
information on fossil organisms. It represents the marriage of
up-to-date systematic information on a collection of over 1500
fossil genera, state-of-the-art color digital photographs of
representative specimens from The Natural History Museum's
unrivaled paleontological collections, and modern relational
database technology. With PaleoBase an important new tool for the
teaching of life history in a wide variety of advanced secondary,
undergraduate and graduate courses (e.g., paleontology, historical
geology, stratigraphy, paleoceanography, paleobiogeography) becomes
available to students and educators alike.
"PaleoBase: Macrofossils" is the first product from the
PaleoBase project, and will be released in three Parts. It will
consist of approximately 1000 generic records drawn from the major
invertebrate groups. The genera have been carefully selected to
include taxa used in the teaching of paleontology and historical
geology worldwide. Together they represent the ideal fossil
collection; one that in practice only the largest natural history
museums could hope to assemble. "PaleoBase: Macrofossils" gives
educators, students and researchers access to a virtual collection
of these fossils - many of which are actual figured specimens from
the 19th and 20th century technical publications that served to
originally establish the concepts of these genera.
"PaleoBase: Macrofossils Part One" contains data on the
Arthropods (non-Trilobite), Brachiopods, Bryozoans, Graptolites,
Trace Fossils and Trilobites.
Part Two contains Bivalves, Gastropods, Ammonoids, Nautiloids,

At the dawn of the twentieth century the universal consensus was that the American Indian was about to "vanish." More than two centuries of devastating wars, forced migrations, confinement, starvation, and disease had cost untold Indian lives, and the Native population was at a historic low. Pressure for land and resources was intense. Advocates and reformers urged the government to "assimilate" Indians by breaking up their remaining land base and stamping out tribal cultures. Yet American Indians did not disappear. Rather, they have adapted and thrived, maintaining much of their cultures, languages, and identities. The Encyclopedia of the American Indian in the Twentieth Century provides a comprehensive overview of this dramatic process through profiles of key individuals, organizations, government policies, and events that have defined Native history since 1900. Providing one-stop alphabetical access to information not readily available in other sources, with extensive cross-references and suggestions for further reading, this authoritative reference work offers the clearest and most unified picture of the American Indian in the twentieth century.
