M. Dumas Celebrates a Century in Charleston

There’s a party going on in Charleston, S.C.
This year, M. Dumas & Sons is celebrating its 100th anniversary — a milestone for any retailer, let alone a third-generation family-owned one — and on Thursday, the men’s specialty store will close down Society Street for a block party and fashion presentation that will showcase a century of M. Dumas style.
When the store opened in 1917, it was a uniform purveyor for service jobs and is credited with introducing Levi’s jeans to the Charleston market.
During the Korean and Vietnam wars, it was the sole provider of uniforms for naval officers stationed in Charleston and also offered a large selection of hunting and outdoor apparel, as well as shotguns and fishing poles.
By the Sixties, the business transitioned into more traditional men’s wear and over the years it has introduced brands such as Tommy Bahama, Sperry, Woolrich, CC Filson, Barbour, Duck Head and Southern Tide to the Charleston market.
Owned today by David Dumas, the grandson of founder Mendel Dumas, the store carries tailored clothing and sportswear from brands such as Hickey Freeman, Samuelsohn, Jack Victor, Eton, Rodd & Gunn, Faherty, Vince, Paul & Shark, Bonobos, Ledbury, Filson and Johnnie-O.

The Oxford History of Western Music: Music in the Early Twentieth Century

The Oxford History of Western Music: Music in the Early Twentieth Century


The universally acclaimed and award-winning Oxford History of Western Music is the eminent musicologist Richard Taruskin’s provocative, erudite telling of the story of Western music from its earliest days to the present. Each book in this superlative five-volume set illuminates-through a representative sampling of masterworks-the themes, styles, and currents that give shape and direction to a significant period in the history of Western music. Music in the Early Twentieth Century, the fourth volume in Richard Taruskin’s history, looks at the first half of the twentieth century, from the beginnings of Modernism in the last decade of the nineteenth century right up to the end of World War II. Taruskin discusses modernism in Germany and France as reflected in the work of Mahler, Strauss, Satie, and Debussy, the modern ballets of Stravinsky, the use of twelve-tone technique in the years following World War I, the music of Charles Ives, the influence of peasant songs on Bela Bartok, Stravinsky’s neo-classical phase and the real beginnings of 20th-century music, the vision of America as seen in the works of such composers as W.C. Handy, George Gershwin, and Virgil Thomson, and the impact of totalitarianism on the works of a range of musicians from Toscanini to Shostakovich

21st Century U.S. Military Manuals: Physical Fitness Training FM 21-20 – Exercise, Conditioning, Muscle Groups (Value-Added Professional Format Series)


Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, the Physical Fitness Training Field Manual (FM 21-20) covers physical fitness and exercise in the military. The preface states: “On 5 July 1950, U.S. troops, who were unprepared for the physical demands of war, were sent to battle. The early days of the Korean war were nothing short of disastrous, as U.S. soldiers were routed by a poorly equipped, but well-trained, North Korean People’s Army. As American soldiers withdrew, they left behind wounded comrades and valuable equipment their training had not adequately prepared them to carry heavy loads. The costly lessons learned by Task Force Smith in Korea are as important today as ever. If we fail to prepare our soldiers for their physically demanding wartime tasks, we are guilty of paying lip service to the principle of “Train as you fight.” Our physical training programs must do more for our soldiers than just get them ready for the semiannual Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). FM 21 -20 is directed at leaders who plan and conduct physical fitness training. It provides guidelines for developing programs which will improve and maintain physical fitness levels for all Army personnel. These programs will help leaders prepare their soldiers to meet the physical demands of war. This manual can also be used as a source book by all soldiers. The benefits to be derived from a good physical fitness program are many. It can reduce the number of soldiers on profile and sick call, invigorate training, and enhance productivity and mental alertness. A good physical fitness program also promotes team cohesion and combat survivability. It will improve soldiers’ combat readiness.”Contents include:* Cardiorespiratory Fitness* Muscular Endurance and Strength* Beginning Exercise Program (exercise descriptions)* Advanced Exercise Program (exercise descriptions)* Flexibility* Body Composition* Nutrition and Fitness* Circuit Training and Exercise Drills* Obstacle

America’s Greatest Democratic Presidents of the 20th Century: Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Bill Clinton

America’s Greatest Democratic Presidents of the 20th Century: Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Bill Clinton


*Weaves the lives and presidencies of all 6 Democratic Presidents into one entertaining and educational narrative*Includes dozens of pictures of the presidents and important people, places, and events in their lives*Analyzes the legacies and accomplishments of each president. *Includes a Table of Contents. The Democrats who were elected president in the 20th century were responsible for a seemingly never ending list of accomplishments. Woodrow Wilson established the blueprint for the progressive presidents that would follow him, particularly Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, while guiding the nation through World War I. FDR expanded that vision with his New Deal, completely revolutionizing the social contract between Americans and their federal government. While combating the Great Depression and the Axis powers in World War II, FDR has widely been considered one of the greatest presidents in history. When Roosevelt died in April 1945, Vice President Truman, somewhat unprepared for the Presidency, now had to fill some of the biggest shoes in American history. The new president had to usher America through victory in Europe in his first month and decide to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki a few months later, but the end of World War II produced only the first of many consequential decisions Truman would face during his nearly 8 years in office. As president, Truman would lay the groundwork for the next 50 years of American foreign policy, as the architect of Cold War containment, the man who signed off on the Marshall Plan, and the commander-in-chief during much of the Korean War. In many ways, John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his young family were the perfect embodiment of the 60s. The decade began with a sense of idealism, personified by the attractive Kennedy, his beautiful and fashionable wife Jackie, and his young children. Months into his presidency, Kennedy exhorted the country to reach for the stars, calling upon the nation to send a man to the Mo

Shamanism and the Eighteenth Century

Shamanism and the Eighteenth Century


Pursuing special experiences that take them to the brink of permanent madness or death, men and women in every age have “returned” to heal and comfort their fellow human beings-and these shamans have fascinated students of society from Herodotus to Mircea Eliade. Gloria Flaherty’s book is about the first Western encounters with shamanic peoples and practices. Flaherty makes us see the eighteenth century as an age in which explorers were fascinating all Europe with tales of shamans who accomplished a “self-induced cure for a self-induced fit.” Reports from what must have seemed a forbidden world of strange rites and moral licentiousness came from botanists, geographers, missionaries, and other travelers of the period, and these accounts created such a stir that they permeated caf talk, journal articles, and learned debates, giving rise to plays, encyclopedia articles, art, and operas about shamanism. The first part of the book describes in rich detail how information about shamanism entered the intellectual mainstream of the eighteenth century. In the second part Flaherty analyzes the artistic and critical implications of that process. In so doing, she offers remarkable chapters on Diderot, Herder, Goethe, and the cult of the genius of Mozart, as well as a chapter devoted to a new reading of Goethe’s Faust that views Faust as the modern shaman. Originally published in 1992.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

It’s Time to Break Our Habits and Chart a New Path as 21st Century Leaders

This article was co-created with Sydney Strauss, a Pacific Northwest based writer and editor passionate about the future of humanity and the planet.

We live in a time of opportunity and possibilities and yet our 21st century society has a habit in need of breaking. For some of us it’s eating fast food or working 24/7 in a constant state of busyness, but as a collective humanity, the habit we have to tackle feels a lot more illusory: success, or rather, the way by which we all understand what it means to be successful is at a crossroads.

If asked what individual success looks like, most of us might mention an impressive, high-paying job with a bounty of opportunities for future promotions, salary increases and awards, and nothing is inherently wrong with that. It’s the current story of how we judge each other’s success and failure rate. And yet today’s unconscious definition is blatantly steering us down an unhealthy path and is stuck in the last century.

Today, more people of all ages are realizing that there is more to life than being defined by what we do to make a living. You can go into any organization in the world and people are overworked and they desperately want to know how they can be more satisfied with their lives. Some are becoming aware of the decades-long second Industrial Revolution ideals of constant growth and constant work that have silently convinced us to produce such answers, perhaps without our consent. Those values once aligned in perfect parallelism with the needs of the day, yes, but our 21st century world is on the path toward a clash with those very values. It is our responsibility to stay mindful of how our unconscious behavior — our habits — might be chemically reacting with the reality of right now, and to act accordingly.


What if we saw opportunity instead of constantly working at solving problems?

We live in a time rich with potential for new possibilities. We need to remember that we were born with powerful voices, and we must find ways to use them to create new pathways, relationships, and partnerships to live and work together peacefully and productively. There are huge opportunities for business to transform, and this transformation will only begin when each of us starts stepping up to our respective roles in helping to enact change. It’s time to connect our own personal experiences and ingenuity to figure out what this journey means to us. We can rewrite the script by regaining our common sense and asking ourselves what is important to us versus how others tell us we should lead our lives.

Indeed, it seems as though our humanity is getting lost amidst the chaotic obsession to “succeed” and grow, yet in the face of a rapidly decaying planet, flagrant racism, xenophobia, and a historic refugee crisis, it is precisely our humanity — our ability to empathize and creatively and collaboratively come up with innovative solutions — that is being demanded from us. It is incredibly base conduct for an individual or a company to feed the certainly delicious addiction of massive growth and profit no matter the cost or consequence, and to strive to acquire tangible symbols of having “made it” is really just a means without any actual end. How could those values ever again be authentic notions of success when we, our fellow humans, and our planet are all dangling by a thread?

We assume that “new and improved” is the way to go, so we continue building atop structures with already cracking foundations, slap on a few Band-Aids, and call it good. People of all ages are working around the clock to become the next Google or the next $ 1B company, because if being unbearably overwhelmed isn’t “success,” then what is? How did we get to this stale, one-dimensional point in our collective history?

It’s time for us to re-define success and failure based on our own compass

Perhaps it’s time to leave these antiquated definitions of success behind and create a new path forward. There are incredible opportunities for us to take business to a whole new playing field of being a force of good, and it’s up to each of us to pave the way, because if not us, then who?

The 21st century leader is within each of us

There are so many stories of leaders in the 21st century already working hard to create that new playing field of business. Jay Coen Gilbert, co founder of the B Corp Movement is a true vanguard in redefining success with the B Corp movement, which offers businesses a set of strict standards regarding ethical performance — social, environmental, and legal — in exchange for the coveted official B Corp certification. With over 1,600 certified B Corps from over 42 countries, including Etsy and Patagonia, the movement to measure success in terms of mindful beneficence instead of inordinate growth is quickly gaining momentum. With the help of people like Jay, we as a society are already starting to break the bad habit of “success.”

2016-05-02-1462232598-2507616-Itstime.png

We as a society have been normalized to egregious corporate behavior and accept massive layoffs and burnout, but those are precisely the bad habits that we must try, with our personal greatest might and bold voice, to break if we want to ensure a sustainable and healthy world for generations to come. It’s definitely time to move away from the 20th century mindset of fear and appreciate that each of us is here to create and co-create the world we want to live in. We have to stop expecting others to do it for us. With 21st century leaders like Jay and so many others, there is hope that change can come from anywhere and anyone. It’s time to stand up and make meaningful, mindful decisions at home and at work. Today, that is our calling as 21st century leaders. We live in an open and connected world and if we have a voice, we have a choice.

What we need more than anything is more people believing in ourselves and taking the time to recognize and remember our bold voice in the world. We need to stop following other people’s cookie cutter solutions and see ourselves as having the ability to co-create the world we want to live in, which means that we try different ways on the journey that has less celebrity heroes to worship and more 21st century leaders. It’s time for a new mindset and it’s personal. What habit no longer serves you? What’s your definition of success?

The Great Explorers of the Nineteenth Century

The Great Explorers of the Nineteenth Century


This forms the third and concluding volume of Verne’s Celebrated Travels an Travellers. One is struck with the great mass of interesting matter, geographical, ethnological, and other, which is here compacted together; bespeaking as it does no small amount of research, an still more afiording fresh evidence of that instinctive perception of the popular which is, to a large extent, the secret of the author’s success in his numerous works. A preliminary chapter is devoted to a general survey of explorations by Seetzen, Burckhardt, Webb, an others in the East in the early part of the century-a survey very interesting so far as it goes, but superficial. The value of the work, however, grows as it advances, the story of African travel evidently drawing out the author’s enthusiasm more successfully; and the expeditions of Clapperton and the Landers are narrated with greater fulness, and with more sympathy. The whole of the second part of the book is devoted to Polar Explorers and Circumnavigators, and the stirring careers of Kotzebue and Krusenstern, of Bougainville and Freycinet, as well as of James Clark Ross and John Ross, Parry and Franklin, are concisely and graphically recorded.

Twentieth Century History For Dummies

Twentieth Century History For Dummies


The 20th Century brought revolutionary changes to our world and our lives: the human population of the world tripled, space travel became reality, two world wars and a host of other conflicts were fought, and huge advances in science, technology and communication resulted in the globalised world we know today. Enormous steps were made in wiping out widespread discrimination, from the women’s suffrage movement leading to women’s right to vote in western countries, to the civil rights movement in the US challenging racial segregation. The political landscape has provided lots of excitement, with charismatic and scandalous presidents in the White House, the first female prime minister in the UK, dictators working to various manifestoes across the world, the Middle East conflict and the changing balance of political and economic “superpowers”. Technological advances have resulted in nigh on universal adoption and dependence on automobiles, computers, mobiles and other wireless technology. The exponential rate at which technology is evolving is one of the variables that make the twentieth century so fascinating. All this and much, much more happened in a mere one hundred years – where did we find the time to do so much? Twentieth Century History For Dummies tells all.

World Century Compendium to TCM, 1

World Century Compendium to TCM, 1


Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), with a history of thousands of years, is the crystallization of the ancient Chinese's experiences in their struggle against diseases. It is also an integral part of the Chinese's splendid culture. Under the influence and direction of classic Chinese philosophies, it has undergone long-term medical practice and infiltrated into, as well as absorbed from, other subjects in that point in time, thus gradually evolving into a unique medical theoretical system that contributed and is still contributing significantly to the healthcare of the Chinese and the prosperity of the Chinese nation.The basic theories of TCM are the theoretical foundations for guiding traditional Chinese preventive medicine and clinical medicine, and encompass aspects such as the philosophical foundation for TCM, understanding the effects of TCM on the physiology and pathology of the human body, and the principles in TCM for life cultivation, rehabilitation, diagnostics, and therapeutics. In this sense, the basic theories are regarded not only as an important part of TCM, but also as a compulsory course fundamental to the study and research of TCM.This book is compiled to allow the majority of readers to understand the theory of TCM and its methods of diagnosing and treating diseases in a relatively short period of time. It provides a brief introduction to the basic characteristics and theory of TCM, and a detailed schedule of learning commonly occurring diseases and patterns and their estimated 60 corresponding prescriptions. This is a great attempt in initiating more people to understand and apply the theory of TCM to diagnose and treat common diseases and provide corresponding formulas.

World Century Compendium to TCM: Volume 4

World Century Compendium to TCM: Volume 4


Chinese internal medicine is a clinical subject which explains, using traditional Chinese theories, the etiology, pathology and therapeutic rules of the diseases or syndromes belonging to internal medicine. It is also the foundation for learning and research in other clinical branches of Chinese medicine, thus playing a vital role in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).Chinese internal medicine has had a long history. Its origins can be traced back several thousand years. Through long-term diagnostic and therapeutic practices, a rich collection of experiences and theories in Chinese internal medicine has been accumulated and this has gradually evolved into a complete, distinctive and effective clinical branch. In recent decades, Chinese internal medicine has also undergone more significant developments, especially in the treatment of cardiac or cerebral vascular diseases, digestive tract diseases, renal diseases and autoimmune diseases.In order to popularize Chinese internal medicine and allow readers to grasp its basic theories as well as diagnostic and therapeutic methods, we wrote this book in a language easily comprehensible by the layman. For ease of learning by modern doctors, we proceeded from the current clinical practice and outlined the contents with Western disease names. There are more than 80 diseases discussed in this book. For each disease, the Chinese syndrome differentiation and treatment as well as modern diagnostic key points are provided, to make it more convenient for the readers to study and understand.The study of each disease should begin from its etiology, pathology and diagnostic key points, followed by the differentiated patterns and corresponding treatments. The respective points of caution for each disease should also be well-noted. Finally, the questions forming the “Daily Exercises” are useful for readers to check their comprehension and recall of the material. Given the chance, the theoretical knowledge should also be applied in clinical practice so that past knowledge is tested and new clinical knowledge and skills can be learned. Indices to the prescriptions are supplemented at the end so as to facilitate study and consultation.This book is suitable for those who are enthusiastic about TCM and with basic medical knowledge, as well as clinical TCM doctors, nursing personnel and TCM students.

Designs for 20th Century Interiors

Designs for 20th Century Interiors


From Art Deco and the Bauhaus to the explosion of colour in the 60s and the return to minimalism in the 90s, this volume explores the 20th-century approach to designing interiors. It features a selection of original sketches, drawings and CAD (Computer Aided Design) printouts from the National Collection of Designs at the V & A. Furniture, ceramics, sale catalogues and other items from the V & A collections provide clues as to the relationship between initial idea and finished product. The illustrations show the innovative and often cutting-edge designs produced by some of the leading designers of the day. Four key sections – living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms – not only demonstrate a range of ideas for the domestic interior, but also highlight the huge lifestyle changes that occurred across Europe and America during the 20th century. Looking at the tension between the ‘traditional’ and the ‘new’ looks, the book also examines the importance of image to 20th-century consumers of designed products.

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000


In 1900, Swedish design reformer and social theorist Ellen Key published “The Century of the Child,” presaging the coming century as a period of intensified focus and progressive thinking around the rights, development and well-being of children. Taking inspiration from Key-and looking back through the twentieth century-this volume, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children, from utopian dreams for the “citizens of the future” to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation. Surveying more than 100 years of toys, clothing, playgrounds, schools, children’s hospitals, nurseries, furniture, posters, animation and books, this richly illustrated catalogue illuminates how progressive design has enhanced the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children’s play have informed experimental aesthetics and imaginative design thinking-engendering, in the process, reappraisals of some of the iconic names in twentieth-century design and enriching the unfolding narrative of modern design with other, less familiar figures. Divided into seven sections-“New Century, New Child, New Art”; “Avant-Garde Playtime”; “Light, Air, Health”; “Children and the Body Politic”; “Regeneration”; “Power Play”; and “Designing Better Worlds”-“The Century of the Child” focuses on individuals and projects that represent innovative and comprehensive contributions to design for children.

Your Century or Mine

Your Century or Mine


Ian McCullough is a man out of time. Literally. One minute he’s in 1891 London working on a time machine with a mad old scientist and the next minute he’s in the twenty-first century in an ocean side mansion in Maine. The house, and the fortune that comes with it, are evidently his, all set up and waiting for him. Now what? When investment adviser Genie Lindsay travels to Maine to meet her reclusive new client, she&#8217,s supposed to be explaining his finances to him. But one look at the guy, all tall-dark-and-handsome, and she’d like to be explaining a few other things as well. Like the sexual revolution for starters. Can one misplaced Victorian gentleman and one modern woman intent on a Girls Gone Wild seduction work out the mystery of time travel? Actually, will they get out of bed long enough to try?

20th Century Photography

20th Century Photography


The history of photography began some 150 years ago, but only relatively recently has it been fully recognised as a medium in its own right. Cologne’s Museum Ludwig was the first museum of contemporary art to devote a substantial section to international photography. The L. Fritz Gruber collection, from which this book is drawn, is one of the most important in Germany and one of the most representative anywhere in the world, constituting the core of the museum’s holdings.This book provides a fascinating insight into the collection’s rich diversity; from conceptual art to abstraction to reportage, all of the major movements and genres are represented via a vast selection of the century’s most remarkable photographs. From Ansel Adams to Piet Zwart – the best and most important photographers of the century are listed in alphabetical order, with images and biographical information.It offers more bang for your buck! ‘…a fast-food, high-energy fix on the topic at hand’ – ‘The New York Times Book Review’.

The Century of U.S.Capitalism in Latin America

The Century of U.S.Capitalism in Latin America


This book addresses two issues basic to understanding modern Latin America: the role of American-owned businesses in the region and, of equal importance, the reaction of Latin Americans to foreign investment. Throughout the nineteenth century and up to the 1930s, American corporations stridently resisted local opposition as they secured what they wanted in Latin America, cheap labor, plentiful raw materials, and favorable business conditions. After World War II, Latin American nationalism and revolutions forced American-owned enterprises to redefine their business model throughout the region. U.S. businesses integrated themselves into local societies through direct investment in manufacturing and the creation of broad-based consumer societies eager to buy everything from Coca-Cola to Chevrolets. As a new century dawns, multinational corporations aided by NAFTA ensure computers and cellular phones are as sought after as soft drinks and cars were in earlier eras. The first book on U.S. business activity in Latin America intended specifically for student readers, this account offers a balanced and insightful understanding of the nature of capitalism abroad. In assessing how U.S.-Latin American relations have been shaped by foreign investment, O’Brien argues that over the course of the twentieth century U.S. businesses and their government have forged a close working alliance to promote American interests in Latin America.

20th Century Fashion

20th Century Fashion


Passion for fashion. Between the first decade of the 20th century, when women were still locked into figure-shaping corsets, to the last years of the millennium, when sexy sweats and low-rise jeans became must-have status items, fashion evolved from a luxury enjoyed by the highest echelon of society to a global business that whisks trends off the runway and into the stores before the last supermodel has left the catwalk. From full skirts to miniskirts and morning coats to leisure suits, men’s and women’s clothing design evolved so rapidly that it was all one could do to keep up and stay in style. Each decade is now associated with definable fashions, short-lived fads and signature silhouettes. And in recent decades, retro has become de rigueur, as designers continually recycle the past for modern-day inspiration. Featuring over 500 ads from the Jim Heimann Collection, these fashion advertisements from 1900 to 1999 give readers a stylish retrospective on the century that defined, redefined, and reinterpreted fashion as we now know it.Arranged by decade and bursting with illustrations, the book’s introduction, chapter text, and year-by-year timelines explore major trends in fashion – from a speciality business to the mass market. Highlighted throughout the book are the historical events, key magazines, the influence of movies and pop culture, and important trends, brands, and retailers. Whether you’re a clothes horse or a fashion amateur, this visual history will provide a comprehensive guide to the evolution of 20th-century style.
