At the behest of his soon-to-be wife, Adrian Tomine set out to create a wedding favor for their guests that would be funnier and more personal than the typical chocolate bars and picture frames. What started out as a simple illustrated card soon grew into a full-fledged comic book: a collection of short strips chronicling the often absurd process of getting married. A loose, cartoony departure from Tomine's previous work, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a sweet-natured, laugh out-loud skewering of the modern marriage process, including hiring a DJ, location scouting, trips to the salon, suit fittings, dance lessons, registering for gifts, and managing familial demands. The most personal and autobiographical work of Tomine's career, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a charming, delightful document of the little moments leading up to the big day. Praise for Adrian Tomine: 'Tomine is, trust me, superb.' Sam Leith, Daily Telegraph 'Near perfection . . . Tomine is a superb graphic novelist.' Daily Telegraph 'Visually stunning . . . absolutely essential.' Independent on Sunday 'Rendered with uncluttered beauty, the dialogue is so convincing that you can almost hear the characters speak, and it is alight with truth.' Neel Mukherjee, The Times

In his first full length work since Shortcomings in 2007, Adrian Tomine has produced another unforgettable collection of stories and characters: 'Amber Sweet' shows the disastrous impact of mistaken identity in a hyper-connected world; 'A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture' details the invention and destruction of a vital new art form in short comic strips; 'Translated, from the Japanese' is a lush, full-colour display of storytelling through still images; 'Intruders' depicts a man obsessively trying to find his way back to a former life. From the master of the small gesture, it is a fraught, realist masterpiece about the weight of love and its absence, the pride and disappointment of family, the anxiety and hopefulness of being alive in the twenty-first century.

Between his second and third tours of duty, a soldier returns home. To his former home, that is, using an old key while the new tenant is at work. Is he re-entering his old life or borrowing someone else's? Where is the line he will not cross? Each day is the same: he exists in a state of suspension, barely knowing how he passes the time - until someone else intrudes on the intruder. Adrian Tomine, graphic master of alienation and regret, expertly expands the form to express the unsaid and the unbearable in this unforgettable evocation of a post-traumatic life.

Julian Steward (1902-72) is best remembered in American anthropology as the creator of cultural ecology, a theoretical approach that has influenced generations of archaeologists and cultural anthropologists. Virginia Kerns considers the intellectual and emotional influences of Steward's remarkable career, exploring his early life in the American West, his continued attachments to western landscapes and inhabitants, his research with Native Americans, and the writing of his classic work, Theory of Culture Change. With fluid prose and rich detail, the book captures the essence and breadth of Steward's career while carefully measuring the ways he reinforced the male-centered structure of mid-twentieth-century American anthropology.

Reviewing the first volume of Opera Scenes for Class and Stage, Walter Ducloux wrote in the Opera Journal: "If you can come up, within five seconds, with an operatic excerpt involving two sopranos, four mezzo-sopranos, two tenors, and a bass, you don't need this book. Otherwise hurry and buy it. I keep it on my night table." In More Opera Scenes, the Wallaces have reviewed 100 additional operas and have chosen over 700 scenes. The popular "Table of Voice Categories" providing more than 300 combinations is also featured in this volume.

The Handbook of Critical Methodologies covers everything from the history of critical and indigenous theory and how it came to inform and impact qualitative research and indigenous peoples to the critical constructs themselves, including race/diversity, gender representation (queer theory, feminism), culture, and politics to the meaning of "critical" concepts within specific disciplines (critical psychology, critical communication/mass communication, media studies, cultural studies, political economy, education, sociology, anthropology, history, etc. - all in an effort to define emancipatory research and explore what critical qualitative research can do for social change and social justice.

"It was a wonderful scene -- it holds great truth and depth." -- Joe Allen Price Scenes I've Seen is a casting director's book of original dramatic and comedic scenes for actors and actresses ranging in age from 20 to 65. What makes the book unique is that it offers both wonderful, contemporary scenes, as well as in-depth comments from the author, providing insight to the characters and advice from a professional casting director on performing the scenes. The additional information that accompanies each scene offers actors a better understanding of the role, thereby enhancing the choices they use in their performance. Dorian Dunas attended USC film school and started in the film business reading scripts for two years for director Richard Donner. She got into development and worked for actor Peter Strauss' film company, Beowolf, for a year, then moved into casting. Her first job as a casting assistant was Pretty in Pink. In casting, Ms. Dunas has worked on eleven features, five television series, six pilots, and two plays. Several years ago, she worked with a partner writing scripts, and their first comedy script was optioned by Paramount Pictures.
