Embodiment of a Nation by Cecelia Tichi
Book DescriptionFrom Harriet Beecher Stowe's image of the Mississippi's "bosom" to Henry David Thoreau's Cape Cod as "the bared and bended arm of Massachusetts," the U.S. environment has been recurrently represented in terms of the human body. Exploring such instances of embodiment, Cecelia Tichi exposes the historically varied and often contrary geomorphic expression of a national paradigm. Environmental history as cultural studies, her book plumbs the deep and peculiarly American bond between nationalism, the environment, and the human body.

Jack London, Hardback (September 2015)
Jack London (1876-1916) found fame with his wolf-dog tales and sagas of the frozen North, but Cecelia Tichi challenges the longstanding view of London as merely a mass-market producer of potboilers. In this major reinterpretation of London's career, Tichi examines how the beloved writer leveraged his written words as a force for the future.
