Poetry. "The word 'lush' doesn't even begin to describe these poems. And boy, do we need lushness, especially these days. The world empties us out, and only poetry can fill us up again. In one poem, the speaker lies on a bench in a park and when a groundskeeper, mistaking her for a homeless person, asks her if there's something she needs, she says yes, yes, I need everything. Are you hungry, reader? Open this book, then. A feast awaits."--David Kirby "There is a buoyant and inviting quality in Ösel Jessica Plante's debut collection WAVELAND that keeps me reading in riveted fashion these wise poems of a younger poet. There exists humor here and contemplation of human relationships in their c...

Ecological Silviculture

Classical silviculture has often emphasized timber models, fundamentally based in production agriculture. This books presents silvicultural methods based in natural forest models—models that emulate natural disturbances and development processes, sustain biological legacies, and allow time to take its course in shaping stands. These methods, dubbed “ecological forestry,” have been successfully implemented by foresters for decades managing a wide variety of forestlands. Ecological silvicultural strategies protect threatened and rare species, sustain biological diversity, and provide habitat for game and non-game species, all while providing timber in profitable ways.

Interorganizational Collaboration

Interorganizational Collaboration: Complexity, Ethics, and Communication centers around three key assertions: (1) interorganizational collaboration is complex and warrants study as a specific type of leadership and communication; (2) successful collaborative relationships are grounded in a principled ethic of democratic and egalitarian participation; and (3) interorganizational collaboration requires a specific communication language of practice. Interorganizational collaboration is influenced by increased interconnectedness, shifting organizational needs, and a changing workforce. Collaboration invokes ethical questions and ethical responsibilities that must be considered in communication p...

Historical Dictionary of Shamanism

A remarkable array of people have been called shamans, while the phenomena identified as shamanism continues to proliferate. This second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Shamanism contains with examples from antiquity up to today, and from Siberia (where the term “shaman” originated) to Amazonia, South Africa, Chicago and many other places. Many claims about shamans and shamanism are contentious and all are worthy of discussion. In the most widespread understandings, terms seem to refer particularly to people who alter states of consciousness or enter trances in order to seek knowledge and help from powerful other-than-human persons, perhaps “spirits”. But this says only a lit...

Global Human Rights

Peter Van Arsdale’s four decades of worldwide applied research and community outreach as a cultural anthropologist have involved water resource development, mental health, refugee resettlement, humanitarian assistance, and human rights. With one foot in the university, he always has kept the other foot in the field. In this brief, well-crafted volume, he synthesizes and grapples with key rights debates as well as human rights injustices on four continents. Thoughtful, original, and pragmatic, Van Arsdale opens with a “Tree of Rights” metaphor to demonstrate that rights are continually growing and evolving. From its branches come new rights, changes in the perception of rights, and the ...
