First Edition
Soft Cover
Very Good



Illustrated

A very hard to find publication, in fact the book itself states "for internal distribution only". 74 pp plus an attached errata sheets of 6 pp. In this detailed anthropological work the author begins by stating her aims and methods along with how the report is organized. This is followed by maps, then moving on to background (geographic setting, population, annual cycle, history, structure of the society, interaction patterns), and then delving into the meat of the subject - Emotion Concepts. Those covered are affection, kindness and gratitude, happiness, hostility and aggression, humor, fear and anxiety, shyness, loneliness and reason. This largest section is followed by a summary and conclusions and finally appendices on kinship and family. A fine clean bright copy with only minor edgewear

Navy Pier: A Chicago Landmark
Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.
Ivan R Dee
1996

Soft Cover

Illustrated

Minor edgewear otherwise a lovely clean fresh copy. From the publisher:"Since 1673 when Father Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet portaged through the territory that is now Chicago, water transportation has been vital to the city's growth. In the early twentieth century, when Daniel Burnham put together his master plan for the design of Chicago—a plan intended to create a sense of civic virtue—he envisioned a grand municipal pier for public recreation near the central city. Later modified for multiple uses by the Chicago-Harbor Commission, Navy Pier opened in 1916. This glorious extension into Lake Michigan was a feat of engineering not unlike the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, and prompted a similar fascination. In this entertaining history, abundantly illustrated with 75 photographs and 32 color plates, Douglas Bukowski traces the origins and construction of Navy Pier, its golden era to 1940, its uses in the World War II home front, its college campus years, and its rediscovery and redevelopment for recreational use from the 1970s to the present. Daniel Burnham's advice to Chicago to make no little plans is beautifully captured in this book. A publication of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority of Chicago."
