From Library Journal
Anyone who goes on safari will want to make room in his or her suitcase for this treasure. Estes, who is affiliated with Harvard University and the Smithsonian Institute as a research associate, spent over eight years doing fieldwork in Africa and over 17 years leading safaris.

The Real Bettie Page: The Truth about the Queen of Pinups

Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
In this unauthorized biography of the 1950s pin-up phenomenon Bettie Page, Style Weekly's associate editor reveals new information about the pop icon's missing years. In 1957, at the height of her popularity, Page walked away from the glamour-girl lifestyle and disappeared until tracked down by reporters in 1992. Recent books and articles about the model, including her coauthored authorized biography, Bettie Page: The Life of a Pin-Up Legend (General Publishers Group, 1996), have left out seamier portions of her story, which Foster includes here. A chapter on Cyber Bettie gives web site addresses, including a hyperlink list to more than 400 images and text. An inventory lists selected book covers, comic books, and album and magazine covers. Although this work reads like a tabloid expose?Foster offers lots of...


Trends in World Social Development

Oct 1988
Hardcover

Choice
"More than two decades ago, Barbara Ward posed some serious questions, in her book The Rich Nations and the Poor Nations (1962), about social development and the inequities that exist among countries. Estes's study is a more recent attempt to seriously explore, understand, and offer solutions to the consequences of this widening gap between the world's rich and poor nations, based on trends in 124 nations including the People's Republic of China. The author examines the threats to social development posed by conditions such as war, militarism, famine and malnutrition, uncontrolled population growth, debt crisis, the AIDS epidemic, and the neglect of the role of women in development. According to Estes, effective solutions will require a planned social policy on the part of the world community rather than short-term measures used...

Book Description
Richard Estes (b.1932) is one of America's leading photorealist painters. This new large-format book will cover fifty-five years of Estes's work, from 1950 to 2005, and will include paintings, watercolors, and preparatory sketches. Estes is regarded as one of the most important painters of the New York urban landscape. The crisp clarity of Estes's paintings is reminiscent of photography, yet upon closer inspection his work reveals elements and perspectives that do not exist in reality and have more to do with minimalism and realism than with traditional landscape painting. The book will also include his work of the last ten years, much of which will be published here for the first time. A detailed chronology and list of exhibitions and public collections are included.

The Behavior Guide to African Mammals
Richard Estes
0520080858
Dec 1992
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Behavior Guide to African Mammals is as different from a conventional field guide as motion pictures are from a snapshot. Whether we are able to look at them face to face, on television, or in the hundreds of illustrations provided here by Daniel Otte, this guide allows us to understand what animals do and what their behavior means.
Drawing on his own extensive fieldwork and on the research of many other scientists, Richard Estes describes and explains the behavior of four major groups of mammals. Estes's remarkably informative guide is as up-to-date for the zoologist as it is accessible for the interested onlooker.

Ricky Martin: La Vida Loca Del Rey Del Pop Latino

8479743964

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias are two of the best known and most coveted stars of Latin pop, so these two glossy books should have no trouble attracting readers. Every page holds at least one photograph: Ricky swishing his hips in concert, Enrique brooding on a chair, Ricky accepting his 1999 Grammy Award, Enrique embraced by fans, etc. But the real treat is seeing the older photographs of Martin, the ones from his long-haired years while he was struggling in New York. Each book also provides "essential" information about the performers, such as their height, weight, horoscope, favorite film, color, and food. The biographies broken up into one- and two-page sections are filled with facts and hit the adoring note mostly likely to please these singers' fans. A good choice for bookstores and casual...
