George Segal: Bronze
George Segal (Illustrator)
February 2003
Book Description
In the late 1960s, George Segal began "double-casting" his work -- taking a second cast from inside the mold of the original cast. This process brought finer detail to the surface and was part of his evolution to a more naturalizing image. When, in the 1980s, he began making bronze work for outdoor installation, he continued this double-casting technique and all his bronzes were made from finished plasters. As Carroll Janis writes in the introduction, "Segal's plaster sculpture presents an existential situation; the surrogate figure, more fagile and removed from reality when set next to the real object. The bronzes appear to reverse this idea by asserting the strength and permanence of the human figure within the surrounding environment." Essay by Joan Pachner.~Introduction by Carroll Janis. Paperback, 10.5 x 9 in./81...

The Electronic Day Trader: Successful Strategies for on-Line Trading
George West
August 2000
Book Review
Most of us have been conditioned to approach the stock market as a long-term proposition. Many of the bestselling investment books coach readers to seek value in the best companies for long periods of time. Day trading, a recent phenomenon brought on by the reform of the financial markets and by the growth of online trading, goes in just the opposite direction. Instead of buying and holding stocks for years, successful day traders make money by dipping in and out of the market in a matter of minutes, finding profit in the tiny fractions between the bid and asking price of a stock or by catching the ups and downs of stock prices, which are driven by everything including the latest news from CNBC or speculation on what Alan Greenspan ate for breakfast.

New York Characters
Gillian Zoe Zoe Segal
November 2001
From Publishers Weekly
lenty of books feature New York City's famous landmarks, but what about the Big Apple's famous or notorious, or merely interesting citizens? Former mayor Ed Koch, Carlyle Hotel crooner Bobby Short, bearded lady Jennifer Miller, Chinatown's Egg Cake Lady and The Oldest Cabbie are just a few of the folks Gillian Zoe Segal highlights in her book of photographs and biographical sketches, New York Characters. It's not a comprehensive gathering ("Woody Allen dissed me and I got in a fight with the "Soup Nazi," she writes), but that's part of its charm: after all; a unique city deserves a quirky cross-section. All author proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. Foreword by George Plimpton.

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-This now-classic tale was originally published in 1898 as part of Kenneth Grahame's semiautobiographical short story collection, "Dream Days." A shepherd discovers a dragon living in a cave. His son knows from his reading of natural history and fairy tales that some dragons are reasonable and nonthreatening. He approaches the creature, who proves to be a gentle, noncombative sort. The villagers, however, see him as a menace, and St. George is sent for. The boy is able to convince him that this is a good dragon, and the three devise a plan...

Collected Poems, 1954-2004
Irving Feldman
October 2004
From Booklist
Feldman revels in the tumult of life. Born in Brooklyn on the brink of the Depression, he depicts Jewish New York with attentiveness, mischievous humor, and abiding affection. Possessed of an epic sensibility, he writes in the grand tradition of Milton and Shelley, albeit in a boldly vernacular and skeptical mode, a form necessary for his evocations of the Holocaust, especially those found in his powerful 1965 collection The Pripet Marshes. That is one of 10 robust collections well represented here and accompanied by new works. War and its rhetoric concern Feldman, especially in All of Us Here (1986), as he castigates our bombastic leaders, our half-baked fantasies, our fears, and our pursuit of distraction via our embrace of such figures as those cartoon familiars, Mickey and Donald. Elsewhere, Feldman...

Dada East: The Romanians of Cabaret Voltaire
Tom Sandqvist
February 2006
From Publishers Weekly
The sustained provocations to order, decency, taste and common sense unleashed at the infamous Cabaret Voltaire in neutral Zurich during the war-torn February of 1916 have never really been matched; modernist performance began with an intensity it never fully regained. In almost encyclopedic you-are-there detail, Sandqvist, a professor of art history in Stockholm, convincingly shows that Dada did not emerge fully formed in Zurich but grew out of an already active Romanian avant-garde, one that simply relocated to Switzerland when a group of Bucharest's most advanced modernists settled there. Bucharest—then a mysterious, polyglot city at the fringes of Europe, with one foot in Paris and another in the East, had already been a hotbed of proto-Dada poetry, prose and performance in the period before 1914. That...
