Figures in polar bear costumes on the beach, at pubs, and fairs, arm in arm with toddlers, men, women: What kind of strange pictures are these? The collector Jochen Raiß, whose flea market finds of women in trees have already stirred the enthusiasm of photography fans, again opens up his treasure trove for a new and mysterious series of people posing with polar bears. The shaggy white animal appears in the oddest places, serving both willingly and naturally as a photographic motif. Where did this evident trend originate, and why has the polar bear, of all creatures, become so popular? And why were Germans up to the mid-twentieth century in particular so crazy about polar bears? This funny little book collects the best pictures from Raiß's collection--and certainly leaves some questions unanswered.

A Powerful and Poetic Call to Ecological & Feminist Activism This masterful work by internationally known author and speaker Jean Shinoda Bolen provides an insightful look into the fusion of ecological issues and global gender politics. Of trees and women. This book on the importance of trees grew out of Bolen’s experience mourning the loss of a Monterey pine that was cut down in her neighborhood. That, combined with her practice of walking among tall trees, led to her deep connection with trees and an understanding of their many complexities. From their anatomy and physiology, to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, Bolen expertly explores the dynamics of ecological activism spiritual activism and sacred feminism. And, she invites us to join the movement to save trees. Stories of those making a difference. While there is still much work to be done to address environmental problems, there are many stories of individuals and organizations rising up to make a change and help save our planet. The words and stories that Bolen weaves throughout this book are both inspirational and down-to-earth, calling us to realize what is happening to not only our trees, but our people. By writing about both the work of organizations like Greenpeace and the UN Commission on the Status of Women, Bolen highlights her passions and shares her unique vision for the world. In Like a Tree learn more about: The dynamic nature of trees — from their anatomy to their role as an archetypal symbol Pressing social issues such as deforestation, global warming, and overpopulation What it means to be a “tree person” If you enjoyed books like The Hidden Life of Trees, Wise Trees, Around the World in 80 Trees, or Braiding Sweetgrass, then you’ll love Like a Tree: How Trees, Women, and Tree People Can Save the Planet.

How do women's land rights change as customary tenure systems give way to individualized land tenure? While the individualization of land rights creates incentives for poor farmers in marginal areas to adopt agroforestry, not much is known about its impact on women's land rights. Land, Trees, and Women examines the evolution of customary land tenure institutions in areas of Western Ghana and Western Sumatra where traditional matrilineal inheritance systems have been changing. In these two areas, the authors find that individualization of land tenure has contributed to both increased gender equity and greater efficiency in agroforestry management. While property rights institutions are moving toward providing proper incentives for efficient natural resource management, the authors conclude that any program or legal framework that assigns rights to resources must be evaluated for barriers to women's participation.

Recent policy reforms and technological innovations in perennial tree crop production have implications for smallholder labour strategies, but changes in these strategies are little understood. Modification in labour decisionmaking among four smallholder communities in Indonesia and Ghana is examined, and the consequences for policy and technology development are explored. The study concludes that there is a need to reassess the way the family is looked at: evidence suggests that the labour strategies are often enacted over a wide geographical area, and form a theme that is hidden by current research techniques used to inform planners and field workers. This publication will be of interest to agencies and individuals concerned with development issues and policy implementation.

Women At Risk: We Also Served is about women who served our country since before World War II to present day. All branches of the military are included, officers and enlisted personnel, as well as women who volunteered as civilians going to a war zone, those that stayed stateside, and other loved ones. Included are clerks, drivers, heavy equipment operators, nurses, USO and ARC volunteers, and more. These women explain some of the things they did or do in the military or as civilians. They tell us why they volunteered, how their lives were changed, and answer the question, “Would I do it again?” More than sixty women are profiled in this book. Their stories are finally being shared—many for the first time. This book is for readers of all ages including students. It will encourage patriotism as you read each chapter. They encourage both the reader and listener to talk more and ask questions about their own family military background. Noonie Fortin realized there was a need for this type of book each time she entered a bookstore and couldn’t find very many books about women who served their country.
