Probably no native American handicrafts are more widely admired than Navajo weaving and Navajo and Pueblo silver work. This book contains the first full and authoritative account of the Indian silver jewelry fashioned in the Southwest by the Navajo and the Zuni, Hopi, and other Pueblo peoples. It is written by John Adair, a trained ethnologist who has become a recognized expert on this craft. “A volume conspicuously pleasing in its format and so strikingly handsome in its profuse illustrations as to rivet your attention once it chances to fall open. With the care of a meticulous and thorough scholar, the author has told the story of his several years’ investigation of jewelry making among the Southwestern Indians. So richly decorative are the plates he uses for his numerous illustrations showing the jewelry itself, the Indians working at it and the Indians wearing it—that the conscientious narrative is surrounded by an atmosphere of genuinely exciting visual experience.”—The Dallas Times Herald The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths provides a full history of the craft and the actual names and localities of the pioneer craftsmen who introduced the art of the silversmith to their people. Despite its present high stage of development, with its many subtle and often exquisite designs, the art of working silver is not an ancient one among the Navajo and Pueblo Indians. There are men still living today who remember the very first silversmiths.

Organic Chemistry: The Name Game: Modern Coined Terms and their Origins is a lighthearted take on the usually difficult and systematic nomenclature found in organic chemistry. However, despite the lightheartedness, the book does not lose its purpose, which is to serve as a source of information on this particular subject of organic chemistry. The book, arranged into themes, discusses some organic compounds and how they are named based on their structure, makeup, and components. The text also explains the use of Greek and Latin prefixes in nomenclature and many other principles in nomenclature. The book also includes an appendix that contains very useful information on nomenclature, such as the etymology of certain element and chemical names, numerical prefixes, and the Greek alphabet. The text is not only for students who wish to be familiarized with a different style of organic chemistry nomenclature, but also for professors who aim to give students an enjoyable yet memorable learning experience.
