From time to time, when we get a collection of related books into the library we like to share a list on a particular topic, but lately we’ve had some books  come in that are too good not to share, even if they don’t fit with a particular theme. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.

Call Number: 701.03 L237p Title: A People’s Art History of the United States Author: Nicolas Lampert
Note – I think the title of this is very misleading and it’s a lot more interesting than it sounds. It’s not a short history of art in the United States, but instead it’s about how art reflected and was used by then current day politics. It covers everything from the Boston Tea Party to the Haymarket Riots to the Iraq War.
