The New Faces of American Poverty: A Reference Guide to the Great Recession. 2 vols. ABC-CLIO. Dec. 2013. 777p. ISBN 9781610691819. $189. YA UG GA
A thoroughly researched examination of a recent social phenomenon is hard to find. The authors of this work, Lindsey K. Hanson and Timothy Essenberg, are, respectively, an attorney at a Minnesota nonprofit who represents low-income tenants in housing cases and a professor of economics. Their work will examine the causes and ongoing social and governmental effects of the period from 2007 to 2009, when poverty reached levels not seen for decades, as well as provide essays on the history of poverty in the United States. The detailed exploration will parse the effects of the recession on specific economic groups such as children, veterans, and various minorities, geographically and by age and other factors.

Dictionary of Smoky Mountain English. Univ. of Tennessee. 2014. NAp. ISBN 9781572332225. $85. YA UG GP GA
This update of a 2004 title and the publisher’s North Carolina English, 1861–1865: A Guide and Glossary (see below) continue the kind of work that Harvard University Press did in DARE: Dictionary of American Regional English up till its completion this year. Like DARE, this guide builds on extensive work with locals. The publisher explains that readers will find here information based on “hundreds of recordings and written sources that date as far back as the late eighteenth century…interviews with elderly residents in the 1930s, early church minutes, Civil War letters, local fiction, and written commentaries on mountain speech,” i.e., the material is likely to be useful in a variety of settings and will be a popular browsing item, particularly in the region in question. Entries, a major portion of which cover flora and fauna of the area, include variant forms and spellings, definition(s), dated citations, and etymology. Smoky Mountain grammar is covered, too.

What is an epic film? Scarecrow explains that it’s a certain kind of movie that gained popularity in the 19th and early 20th centuries—one that was “lengthy, spectacular, live with action, and often filmed in exotic locales with large casts and staggering budgets.” Gone with the Wind and Lawrence of Arabia are obvious examples from the past that are covered here, but film studies majors and devoted fans will also enjoy the encyclopedia’s coverage of more obscure films and of recent behemoths such as the “Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings” series. Entries are by film and offer metadata—directors, screenwriters, cast and character listings, Academy Award wins and nominations, DVD and Blu-ray availability—as well as a plot summary, analysis, and further reading suggestions.

Berkshire Essentials: Religion and Sustainability. Berkshire. Feb. 2014. 216p. ISBN 9781614729563. pap. $29.95. YA UG GA
Berkshire has emerged as a leader in two areas of scholarship: China (see, for example, another title in this series, Business and Economy in China, on page 39)and sustainability. This book focuses on the latter topic, exploring “the ties between humans and their environment across a wide range of perspectives: from Buddhism, Bahai, Hinduism, and Daoism to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, as well as those of indigenous traditions around the world.” Its environmental slant on religious scholarship, which shouldn’t be unusual but is, means that entries cover such intriguing subjects as “Nature Religions and Animism,” “Science, Religion, and Ecology,” and “Stewardship.” The material is drawn from the publisher’s much larger work, the ten-volume Encyclopedia of Sustainability—specifically, Volume 1, The Spirit of Sustainability (2009).

National Geographic’s gorgeous illustrations and engaging text are almost a given, and those are present in abundance in this Who’s Who of the Bronze Age. It also offers something a little different: other titles of this type are organized alphabetically by person, but this book is presented as a chronological narrative, allowing readers to see connections that are not always apparent. LJ spoke to the author, historian Jean-Pierre Isbouts (The Biblical World; In the Footsteps of Jesus), who explained his arrangement choice and what it has to offer libraries. “I think it is impossible,” said Isbouts, “to separate characters like Eve, Abraham, Moses, or Esther from the events in which they play such a critical role. Remember, the Bible is to a large extent a family saga.” He contrasted his approach with that taken by traditional Biblical guides, commenting that “character entries in an alphabetical dictionary are often so stilted and uninspiring, because the social fabric, the relational framework that sustained these individuals, is entirely missing.” The historical methodology Isbouts employed, he explains, will make the book of interest to various Christian and Jewish denominations.

Anniversaries bring the patrons flocking. The past few years have seen multiple scholarly examinations of the American Civil War; now historians have turned an increased focus on World War 1, which began in August 1914, nearly a century ago. New and classic works on the Great War abound (see “The Great War at 100,” Collection Development, LJ 11/1/13, p. 52), so that Cambridge’s title joins a crowded field. This product, however, promises to offer uncommon detail and depth. Chapters cover stages of the conflict (“1914: Outbreak” to “1919: Aftermath”), fronts (“The Ottoman Front,” “The War at Sea”), military topics (“The Laws of War,” “Combat and Tactics,” “Mutiny”), and other concepts (“Neutrality,” “Gender at Home”). The third volume is devoted to the human toll of the war, adding immensely to the value of the set as a research tool. It includes chapters such as “Minorities,” “Captive Civilians,” “The Spanish Flu,” and “Mourning Practices.” A final essay chronicles “The Great War at Its Centenary.”

Without Indentures: Index to White Slave Children in Colonial Court Records. Genealogical. Oct. 2013. 284p. ISBN 9780806319797. pap. $29.95. UG GA
Genealogy is a huge hobby for Americans and the focus of many clubs in libraries around the country, the members of which devour indexes and histories that might contain that precious nugget of data. Genealogical publishes books and handy cards that provide leads and techniques that can help in the search for lost family records. This forthcoming title concerns a terribly sad and largely overlooked group: it lists “the names of more than five thousand children kidnapped from Ireland, Scotland, England, and New England, and sold into slavery in Maryland and Virginia, c. 1660–1720.” For broader works on genealogy, see the company’s forthcoming International Vital Records Handbook (p. 25). To get a start on finding out your own history, or to find out the nefarious origins of your in-laws, use Genealogical’s name search engine at

The Complete IEP Guide: How To Advocate for Your Special Ed Child. 8th ed. Nolo. Jun. 2014. NAp. ISBN 97814133203435. pap. $34.99. GA
This title will be invaluable to many public library patrons, those parents who are faced with the maze of rules and requirements entailed in getting a child with special needs the help to which they are entitled. The legal and educational jargon are huge stumbling blocks, let alone the time required in becoming an informed advocate for your family. Nolo, publisher of law books for the layperson, offers here a guide to the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), by author Lawrence Siegel, a special education attorney and advocate since 1979. The book promises to go into extensive detail. It starts with an introduction for newcomers to the special education system and related law and walks advocates through the entire process, from obtaining a child’s school records, getting them evaluated, writing goals, and attending the IEP meeting, to resolving resulting disputes and filing a complaint. The title also offers sample forms and contacts for support groups and other organizations.

What’s the most asked-for pregnancy advice book in your library? What To Expect When You’re Expecting? Patrons love material that comes in a question-and-answer format—perhaps it’s because if they think that other ordinary people have the same question, it couldn’t be that dumb! Visible Ink has tapped that desire with its “Handy Answer” series, which offers questions and answers on topics from art history and science to the occult and politics. Author Paul A. Tucci tells LJ that his title “explains the basics of investing. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, simple investment strategies; concepts of compounding, portfolios and diversification, and more are all covered. The book answers over 1,000 questions, including, ‘What are some key mutual fund investment considerations?’ ‘What types of risks are there in owning individual stocks? and, ‘What is laddering?’ ”

SAGE comes out with some intriguing titles: this year saw the publication of the company’s Encyclopedia of the Mind, while other recent works have included the Encyclopedia of Play in Today’s Society and Encyclopedia of Identity. For sheer browsing power, though, its forthcoming Encyclopedia of Lying and Deception beats them all. The publisher explains that the title “examines lying from multiple perspectives drawn from the disciplines of social psychology, sociology, history, business, political science, cultural anthropology, moral philosophy, theology, law, family studies, evolutionary biology, philosophy, and more.” Browsers will be joined at the shelf by serious researchers; SAGE titles are fascinatingly detailed examinations of social and other phenomena and are accompanied by access-facilitating extras, for instance, a readers’ guide, which offers subheads such as “Advertising, Marketing, and Public Relations” and “Deception in Different Cultures.”

The company that produced Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever, which Canadians voted the best title by an author from that country, is also well known for science works that feature gorgeous photography. It has apparently observed that bees are having a moment: books galore lately tell would-be apiarists how to get involved in beekeeping and honey production in the most unexpected of places. Complemented by 125 color photos and a section of related projects, this title addresses the scientific and human side of the insects in chapters such as “Social Bees,” “The Pollination Market,” and “Bees in Folklore. “The Enemies of Bees” are discussed, too, with Firefly explaining that such information is important because “every third mouthful of human food is dependent on the pollinating services of bees.”

Reference Shelf: Global Climate Change. H.W. Wilson. Oct. 2013. 200p. ISBN 9780824212162. $55. YA UG GA
H.W. Wilson is a mainstay of solid, no-nonsense reference. The company’s “Reference Shelf” series offers material that will be familiar to students who use Greenhaven’s “Opposing Viewpoints” books but is for a slightly more advanced audience. The title’s several themed chapters (“Science and Skepticism,” “Vanishing Glaciers, Rising Tides,” “Armageddon Approaching?” and “What Can Be Done?”) are each prefaced by an editor’s introduction and include recent articles with various perspectives on a given issue. While the articles come from accessible sources (National Geographic, Time, U.S. News and World Report), the book leaves students to come to their own conclusions as to which camp an article falls into, a helpful approach for students learning to stand on their own.
