A charming gift book showcasing baseball cards from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries alongside photos from the early days of the nation's beloved pastime Game Faces showcases rare and colorful baseball cards from the Library of Congress's Benjamin K. Edwards Collection, bringing to life an era of American history that saw the game explode in popularity. Marrying gems from the collection's 2,100 baseball cards to images of American life from 1887 to 1914, the book also offers engaging insights into the players and the game, giving readers an intimate view of both baseball's development and American culture at the turn of the twentieth century. The book highlights cards depicting many of the game's first stars--including Ty Cobb, Cy Young, and Christy Mathewson--as well as less widely known figures, shown with extravagant ornamentation and boldly juxtaposed colors that render the cards works of art in their own right. Game Faces is a rich, engrossing history of the baseball card and the ways that it has illustrated and influenced American culture as a whole. It is a must-have for those who love baseball.

This edited collection examines women’s roles in the academy. Statistics show that women outnumber men in most universities and that women’s pay still lags behind men’s, but the numbers only hint at the broader story. This edited collection fills that gap with the stories of twelve women—from part-time faculty to college presidents—who answer key questions such as why they pursued a career in the academy and how they handled childcare issues and sexism in the workplace. Advice, encouragement, and caution are offered to guide those considering a career in the academy and those already in academe who are wondering about their options. This book is recommended for burgeoning female scholars and for established scholars of any gender in women’s studies, gender studies, higher education, and communication studies.

The Reading House fills the need for a book to help parents encourage the literacy development of their children at home. Easy to follow and play, these games and experiences can be quickly incorporated into any family’s busy day. In addition, The Reading House describes nine skill sets that must work together for children to become strong, independent readers. These methods will show parents the plan for encouraging language acquisition and reading success from babyhood to the completion of fifth grade. The Reading House is different from other “how to teach reading” books in that it provides strategies to help beginning, challenged, uninspired, and advanced readers. Central to all of these activities is the importance of loving literature to make reading a fun, eagerly anticipated habit. Easily adaptable to classroom and tutoring scenarios, The Reading House can become a valuable guidebook shared between home and the traditional learning environment to enhance student learning and success.
