Information About Coffee Table Books

Scholarship of coffee table books

Brooks co-authored a textbook (with George T. Renner), Directed Studies in Introductory College Geography (1958), as well as (with Bertrand P. Boucher) Field Trips in New Jersey (1962), and (with Richard Keppel) Effective Teaching With Aero-View Transparencies: A Comprehensive Visual Presentation of the Geography, History and Economic Assets of the United States of America (1964). While consulting with McGraw-Hill, Sadlier, and Grolier in the late 1960s, he developed several textbooks for younger students, including Africa: A High School Geography (1966), Africa: A Junior High School Geography (1966), and The Old World: Africa (1968). He co-authored several books on African geography and culture: (with Michael G. Mensoian) Arab World, New Africa (1969); (with Yosef ben-Jochannan and Kempton Webb) Africa: Lands, Peoples, and Cultures of the World (1969); and (with William Norris, and David Dicker) The People of New Africa (1972).

Brooks also produced three books with colleagues from St. John's: (co-editor with Yassin El-Ayouty) Refugees South of the Sahara: An African Dilemma (1970); (co-editor with Yassin El-Ayouty) Africa and International Organization (1974); and (with Francis A. Lees) The Economic and Political Development of the Sudan (1977). He also contributed articles on seven African countries to Grolier's Lands and Peoples reference set, which was first published in 1972 but subsequently went through over ten editions. Brooks worked with the Image Bank in the late 1980s to select photographs for a projected coffee-table book, Africa: The Land and the People, but it was never published.


Archivio di Nuova Scrittura of coffee table books

The Archivio di Nuova Scrittura (Archive of New Writing, ANS) is a cultural association founded in 1988 in Milan, Italy by art collector Paolo Della Grazia. The archive preserves a large artistic and documentary heritage about any form of artistic expression featuring the use of both the word and the sign. Born from the encounter between Della Grazia and artist Ugo Carrega, in the 1990s the ANS became the main Italian research center on visual poetry, organizing exhibitions, meetings and other cultural events. In 1998 the Archivio di Nuova Scrittura was deposited in part at the Mart in Rovereto (library, archives and some artworks) and in part at the Museion in Bozen (artworks only). The artwork section of the ANS includes about 1,600 works by international artists at Mart and about 2,000 at Museion. The ANS archives preserve, apart from the internal archive of the association (ANS fonds), the Fraccaro-Carrega fonds, containing the papers of collector Marco Fraccaro and visual poet Ugo Carrega. The library section, preserved at Mart, contains more than 18,000 volumes, among them 600 artist's books and hundreds of futurist first editions, and 600 art magazines including about 300 international artist's magazines

Audience and reception of coffee table books

The book is aimed at a young audience, with many images and few mathematical details. Nevertheless, each biography is accompanied by a general-audience introduction to the subject's mathematical work, and beyond images of the women profiled, the book includes many mathematical illustrations and historical images that bring to life these contributions. Reviewer Emille Davie Lawrence suggests that the book could also find its way to the coffee tables of professional mathematicians, and spark conversations with guests.

Reviewer Amy Ackerberg-Hastings criticizes the book for overlooking much scholarly work on the subject of women in mathematics, for its lack of detail for some notable women including milie du Chtelet and Maria Gaetana Agnesi, and for omitting others such as Mary Somerville. Nevertheless, she recommends it as a "gift book for middle schoolers", as a way of motivating them to work in STEM fields.

Reviewer Allan Stenger notes with approval the book's inclusion of information about how each subject became interested in mathematics, and despite catching some minor errors calls it "a good bet for inspiring bright young women to have an interest in math". Similarly, reviewer L. Angela Mihai writes that it "will educate and encourage many aspiring mathematicians".


Topics and related works of coffee table books

This book is a collection of biographies of 27 women mathematicians, and brief sketches of the lives of many others. It is similar to previous works including Osen's Women in Mathematics (1974), Perl's Math Equals (1978), Henrion's Women in Mathematics (1997), Murray's Women Becoming Mathematicians (2000), Complexities: Women in Mathematics (2005), Green and LaDuke's Pioneering Women in American Mathematics (2009), and Swaby's Headstrong (2015).

The book is divided into three sections. The first two cover mathematics before and after World War II, when women's mathematical contributions to codebreaking and other aspects of the war effort became crucial;

together they include the biographies of 11 mathematicians. The final section, on modern (post-1965) mathematics has another 16. Mathematics is interpreted in a broad sense, including people who trained as mathematicians and worked in industry, or who made mathematical contributions in other fields. It includes people from more diverse backgrounds than previous such collections, including 18th-century Chinese astronomer Wang Zhenyi, Native American engineer Mary G. Ross, African-American rocket scientist Annie Easley, Iranian mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, and Mexican-American mathematician Pamela E. Harris.

History of coffee table books

ContemporaryThe Gora municipality and Opoja region remained separated during the Miloevi period. After the war, the Gorani-majority Gora municipality was merged with the Albanian inhabited Opoja region to form the municipality of Draga by the United Nations Mission (UNMIK) and the new administrative unit has an Albanian majority.

In 2007 the Kosovar provisional institutions opened a school in Gora to teach the Bosnian language, which sparked minor consternation amongst the Gorani population. Many Gorani refuse to send their children to school due to societal prejudices, and threats of assimilation to Bosniaks or Albanians. Consequently, Gorani organized education per Serbia's curriculum.

Gorani activists in Serbia's proper stated they want Gora (a former municipality) to join the Association of Serb Municipalities, causing added pressure on the Gorani Community in Kosovo.

In 2018 Bulgarian activists among Gorani have filed a petition in the country's parliament demanding their official recognition as a separate minority.

Most Gorani state that the unstable situation and economic issues drive them to leave Kosovo. There is also some mention of threats and discrimination by ethnic Albanians.

Apart from the multiethnic town of Dragash, the Gorani of Kosovo continue to live in villages primarily inhabited by their community and relations with Albanians remain tense. Mixed marriage between both communities do not occur with the exception of a few Gorani families that have migrated to Prizren.


Trials of Kirstin Lobato of coffee table books

Kirstin Blaise Lobato is a Nevada woman who was exonerated for the July 2001 murder and mutilation of Duran Bailey, a homeless man from St. Louis who was living in Las Vegas at the time of his death. At her first trial in May 2002, she was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 40 to 100 years in prison. In a 2006 retrial, she was convicted of the lesser charges of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to 13 to 45 years. Lobato's case gained significant notoriety due to the publication of new evidence, which some believe points to her innocence of the crime.

On December 29, 2017, Lobato was ordered to be released from the Nevada Department of Corrections. It was reported on Jan 2, 2018, that Lobato will spend another year in prison for an unrelated incident, yet on Jan 3 the same judge who had ordered Lobato's original release, ordered her released on that unrelated matter as well, citing time-served.

Lobato was released from the Clark County Detention Center at about 2 pm on January 3, 2018. After being imprisoned for 11 years and three months since her pre-trial bail was revoked following her convictions on October 6, 2006, Lobato told reporters she wanted to go "shopping" and get coffee."


Accusations of coffee table books

Beginning in late May 2001, Kirstin Lobato, then 18, began telling numerous friends in Las Vegas and her hometown of Panaca that a large black man tried to rape her at a Budget Suites Hotel on Boulder Highway in east Las Vegas. Lobato was consistent in telling these people that she fended off the attempted sexual assault by using a pocket knife she carried for self-defense, to try and cut her attacker's penis. From late May to July 4, 2001 she told at least nine different people about the Budget Suites attack.

On July 8, 2001, the mutilated corpse of Duran Bailey, a homeless man, was found on the opposite side of Las Vegas. Lobato was charged with the crime more than ten days later, after one of Lobato's friends informed police of her account of the sexual assault that supposedly occurred two months before. During a police interrogation, Lobato acknowledged stabbing a man in the groin, and police believed this constituted a confession to Bailey's murder, while Lobato claimed to be describing her attack.
