An engaging look at early twentieth-century American printmaking, which frequently focused on the crowded, chaotic, and gritty modern city. In the first half of the twentieth century, a group of American artists influenced by the painter and teacher Robert Henri aimed to reject the pretenses of academic fine art and polite society. Embracing the democratic inclusiveness of the Progressive movement, these artists turned to making prints, which were relatively inexpensive to produce and easy to distribute. For their subject matter, the artists mined the bustling activity and stark realities of the urban centers in which they lived and worked. Their prints feature sublime towering skyscrapers and stifling city streets, jazzy dance halls and bleak tenement interiors—intimate and anonymous everyday scenes that addressed modern life in America. True Grit examines a rich selection of prints by well-known figures like George Bellows, Edward Hopper, Joseph Pennell, and John Sloan as well as lesser-known artists such as Ida Abelman, Peggy Bacon, Miguel Covarrubias, and Mabel Dwight. Written by three scholars of printmaking and American art, the essays present nuanced discussions of gender, class, literature, and politics, contextualizing the prints in the rapidly changing milieu of the first decades of twentieth-century America.

Neymar is the youngest Brazilian ever to reach 35 international goals and time is on his side as he closes in on Pelé’s long-standing record of 77. The Barcelona wünderkind has already scored more times for Brazil by the age of 22 than Rivaldo or Jairzinho did in their entire careers. Luca Caioli, author of bestselling biographies of Messi and Ronaldo, looks back on Neymar’s unstoppable rise with exclusive private access to his friends and family, coaches, teammates and adoring fans. Updated to include his headline-grabbing World Cup performances and the fallout from Brazil's spectacular collapse in his injury-enforced absence, Neymar is the inside story of football’s newest star.

In 1912, Guillermo Calles (1893–1958) became the first Mexican actor to appear in films made in California. Despite limited resources, he began directing and producing his own movies, and in 1929 pioneered production of Spanish-language sound films. His major works, among them the long-unavailable El indio yaqui and Raza de bronce (both 1927), represented Calles’ tireless crusade to restore the image of Mexicans and Indians in an era dominated by Hollywood stereotypes. This biography traces Calles’ career from his earliest Hollywood days through the 1950s. Included are the only surviving images of the filmmaker’s silent productions, a closing commentary on his intimate circle of relatives, and an appendix featuring two fascinating letters written by Calles during a filming trip.

This book is about grit and how to help your daughter get it. Grit is defined as the ability to survive difficulty and failure and learn how to achieve. It is the art of cultivating resilience. Children can learn to have the motivation to keep on task for a long time without reward. Unfortunately, nowadays, it is a rare commodity. However, grit is a quality that parents can teach to their children. One of the essential components of grit is character. The abilities or strengths that help build character can be taught and are malleable. Character needs to be practiced every day, and it involves personal sacrifice, growth, and achievement. One of the most important tenets of education that many adults seem to have forgotten is that learning is hard work. Yes, it can be fun but often those lessons we remember involve initial failures and not success. We believe any parent, biological or not, can raise a successful daughter if you know what to do and are willing to make a firm commitment to do it. Children need parents who love them and are willing to sacrifice so their daughters can make a contribution to this world and be happy. Parenting is not a popularity contest but a "giving" contract. One question you will need to answer as a parent is how much you are willing to give and to sacrifice for your child. We call it being "selfless." In your giving, you have to teach your child to embrace the struggle. Your relationship will surely have plenty of happy times, but it will be defined by the sacrifices that you both make. She will remember the hours you gave to her even when you were exhausted. The times she will yell at you and tell you that you are a lousy parent. The moments when you want to say "yes," and you need to say "no." That is the true grit of a parent that raises an outstanding daughter. You cannot ask what you are not willing to give. As parents, you may be asking, "How do I raise my daughter to be strong in body and mind, i.e. to become a successful athlete and student?" Unfortunately, there is no one simple solution. You may think that is an almost impossible task to raise a daughter to grow up as a confident indi-vidual ready to make it in this world. After all, women are still fighting for equal pay and equal rights in the workplace. How can my daughter feel great about herself when she is surrounded by negative media messages? We believe it is possible and that you can raise a loving daughter if given the right tools. However, most likely, you will need to reassess your own path, and you may discover a need to change some your own perspectives and behaviors. This book is about a new way of life - for both you and your daughter. We want to provide you with a way to help you enjoy watching your daughter grow up to be a healthy and successful woman. It is time to reclaim your role as a leader and model for her future. It is time to be proud as a parent as you see your daughter grow into a successful athlete and scholar. It is time to enjoy the responsibility of being a parent of a wonderful daughter. It is time to start.
