The subjects include books and stories, films, songs, drawings, documents, monuments, sculptures, personal testimonies, and even a Lego set. In an accessible and often deeply personal way, contributors explore their own relationships with the works in question. Edited by Adam Jones, recently selected as one of fifty key thinkers in Holocaust and genocide studies, Evoking Genocide makes an important contribution to the study of the art and culture of mass atrocity.

Bukowski in Pictures is the first pictorial biography of Bukowski, telling the story of his life with approximately two hundred photographs, both colour and black and white, most of which are published here for the first time. Friends of Bukowski, members of his family, and former lovers have contributed candid photographs. There are powerful new portraits by leading photographers such as Gottfried Helnwein, former Rolling Stone art director Tony Lane, and Andy Warhol's former assistant, Gerard Malanga. Artists Dave Geiser and R. Crumb have provided illustrations. Extracts from personal letters and rare documents, including Bukowski's recently declassified FBI file, offer new insights that delve behind the public personae. Biographer Howard Sounes - author of Charles Bukowski: Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life - has edited and introduced Bukowski in Pictures, weaving new research and quotations from Bukowski's work into introductory essays and extensive photo captions.

George Washington Carver was born a slave in Missouri about 1864 and was raised by the childless white couple who had owned his mother. In 1877 he left home in search of an education, eventually earning a master's degree. In 1896, Booker T. Washington invited Carver to start the agricultural department at the all-black-staffed Tuskegee Institute, where he spent the rest of his life seeking solutions to the poverty among landless black farmers by developing new uses for soil-replenishing crops such as peanuts, cowpeas, and sweet potatoes. Carver's achievements as a botanist and inventor were balanced by his gifts as a painter, musician, and teacher. This Newbery Honor Book and Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book by Marilyn Nelson provides a compelling and revealing portrait of Carver's complex, richly interior, profoundly devout life.
