A Storied Wilderness

Rewilding the Apostle Islands

The Apostle Islands are a solitary place of natural beauty, with red sandstone cliffs, secluded beaches, and a rich and unique forest surrounded by the cold, blue waters of Lake Superior. But this seemingly pristine wilderness has been shaped and reshaped by humans. The people who lived and worked in the Apostles built homes, cleared fields, and cut timber in the island forests. The consequences of human choices made more than a century ago can still be read in today�s wild landscapes. A Storied Wilderness traces the complex history of human interaction with the Apostle Islands. In the 1930s, resource extraction made it seem like the islands� natural beauty had been lost forever. But as the island forests regenerated, the ways that people used and valued the islands changed - human and natural processes together led to the rewilding of the Apostles. In 1970, the Apostles were included in the national park system and ultimately designated as the Gaylord Nelson Wilderness. How should we understand and value wild places with human pasts? James Feldman argues convincingly that such places provide the opportunity to rethink the human place in nature. The Apostle Islands are an ideal setting for telling the national story of how we came to equate human activity with the loss of wilderness characteristics, when in reality all of our cherished wild places are the products of the complicated interactions between human and natural history.

Excerpt from Memoir of Richard Marvin Strong I was assisted in my observations by two of my former pupils in the College of New Jersey, Messrs. William J. Gibson and Richard M. Strong, both of Albany, N. Y. Their presence with me, was not only a matter of sincere personal gratification, but was important also, as we were together enabled to note some phenomena which might otherwise have escaped me, and they by their aid contri buted not a little to the accurate observation of those which I might have noted if alone.

Classics of International Relations

Essays in Criticism and Appreciation

Classics of International Relations introduces, contextualises and assesses 24 of the most important works on international relations of the last 100 years. Providing an indispensable guide for all students of IR theory, from advanced undergraduates to academic specialists, it asks why are these works considered classics? Is their status deserved? Will it endure? It takes as its starting point Norman Angell’s best-selling The Great Illusion (1909) and concludes with Daniel Deudney’s award winning Bounding Power (2006). The volume does not ignore established classics such as Morgenthau’s Politics Among Nations and Waltz’s Theory of International Politics, but seeks to expand the ‘IR canon’ beyond its core realist and liberal texts. It thus considers emerging classics such as Linklater’s critical sociology of moral boundaries, Men and Citizens in the Theory of International Relations, and Enloe’s pioneering gender analysis, Bananas, Beaches and Bases. It also innovatively considers certain ‘alternative format’ classics such as Kubrick’s satire on the nuclear arms race, Dr Strangelove, and Errol Morris’s powerful documentary on war and US foreign policy, The Fog of War. With an international cast of contributors, many of them leading authorities on their subject, Classics of International Relations will become a standard reference for all those wishing to make sense of a rapidly developing and diversifying field. Classics of International Relations is designed to become a standard reference text for advanced undergraduates, post-graduates and lecturers in the field of IR.

Excerpt from The History of a Crime UnscruimlOHS Ringsters Plot to Destroy aY011115? American Citizen by the Methods of the Mafia. His is the History of A Crime, A tale of treachery, corruption and cowardice. A new condition of political ethics, the patentor of which is David Martin, the man of the dollar brand, and the prospective enjoyers of whose emoluments, beside himself, are Senator Charles A. Porter, the constructor of the leaks in the Queen Lane Reservoir, and City Solictor Charles F.Warwick. It is a revelation regarding the making of the Mayor of the great city of Philadelphia, contained within the lines ot authoritative information. To thoroughly and clearly understand the present unprecedented condition of political affairs in this city it is necessary to go back to the time when there was a general influx of Mayoralty candidates in the municipal arena. The most prominent, even at that early date, was Senator Boies Penrose. The fierce and never-abating battle which he made against the autocratic power of the Building Commission brought him the support of the best elements of his party and of the people at large. He made his contest regardless of any personal power in the organization of which he was a member. At this time also Senator Charles A. Porter, who has amassed a large fortune through big city contracts, was promising his fealty to three candidates; City Solicitor Warwick, Director of Public Works Windrim, and City Controller Thompson. To each of these he whispered his faithfulness, and each one believed he was the chosen son of the contractor-boss. In this connection let it be borne in mind that City Solicitor Warwick drew the contracts by which Porter kept his four feet in the public trough; that Director Windrim made the changes in the specifications regarding the building of the Queen Lane Reservoir which have led to a public scandal, and that City Controller Thompson permitted payments of money upon that public work before they were actually due. But one man of the three could be the beneficiary of these acts His name has been recorded. Graham Rudely Awakened. At this time also District Attorney Graham was living in the fatuous belief that he enjoyed the favor of David Martin and would be selected as the Republican candidate for Mayor. To him one day there came a rude awakening, and, with mutterings upon his lips over Martins treachery, he withdrew from the field in the interest of his friend. City Solicitor Warwick, with the understanding that the latter would have the full and earnest support of Mayor Stuart and all the power that is back of the Chief Magistrate of Philadelphia. The Iayor, however, proved a reed and bowed to the wind, and, for the time being apparently, Warwick abandoned the field, and with downcast mien admitted his undoing.
