The Island at the Center of the World by Russell Shorto Summary

A gripping narrative of New Netherland–a story of global sweep centered on a wilderness called Manhattan–that transforms our understanding of early America. When the British wrested New Amsterdam from the Dutch in 1664, the truth about its thriving, polyglot society began to disappear into myths about an island purchased for 24 dollars and a cartoonish peg-legged governor. But the story of the Dutch colony of New Netherland was merely lost, not destroyed: 12,000 pages of its records–recently declared a national treasure–are now being translated. Russell Shorto draws on this remarkable archive in The Island at the Center of the World, which has been hailed by The New York Times as “a book that will permanently alter the way we regard our collective past.” The Dutch colony pre-dated the “original” thirteen colonies, yet it seems strikingly familiar. Its capital was cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic, and its citizens valued free trade, individual rights, and religious freedom. Their champion was a progressive, young lawyer named Adriaen van der Donck, who emerges in these pages as a forgotten American patriot and whose political vision brought him into conflict with Peter Stuyvesant, the autocratic director of the Dutch colony. The struggle between these two strong-willed men laid the foundation for New York City and helped shape American culture. The Island at the Center of the World uncovers a lost world and offers a surprising new perspective on our own.

Decline and Recovery of the Island Fox by Timothy J. Coonan,Catherin A. Schwemm,David K. Garcelon Summary

Native only to the California Channel Islands, the island fox is the smallest canid in North America. Populations on four of the islands were threatened to extinction in the 1990s due to human-mediated predation and disease. This is the first account of the natural history and ecology of the island fox, illustrating both the vulnerability of island ecosystems and the efficacy of cooperative conservation measures. It explains in detail the intense conservation actions required to recover fox populations, such as captive breeding and reintroduction, and large-scale ecosystem manipulation. These actions were successful due in large part to extraordinary collaboration among the scientists, managers and public advocates involved in the recovery effort. The book also examines the role of some aspects of island fox biology, characteristic of the 'island syndrome', in facilitating their recovery, including high productivity and an apparent adaptation to periodic genetic bottlenecks.

The Island Chumash by Douglas J. Kennett Summary

Colonized as early as 13,500 years ago, the Northern Channel Islands of California offer some of the earliest evidence of human habitation along the west coast of North America. The Chumash people who lived on these islands are considered to be among the most socially and politically complex hunter-gatherers in the world. This book provides a powerful and innovative synthesis of the cultural and environmental history of the chain of islands. Douglas J. Kennett shows that the trends in cultural elaboration were, in part, set into motion by a series of dramatic environmental events that were the catalyst for the unprecedented social and political complexity observed historically.

A New Geological Map of the Island of Syros (Aegean Sea, Greece) by Mark Keiter,Chris Ballhaus,Frank Tomaschek Summary

The Island of Syros (Cyclades, Greece) is a prime locality for the study of processes active in deep levels of orogens and is world famous for its exceptionally well preserved blueschist- to eclogite-facies lithologies. Syros Island was completely remapped at a scale of 1:25,000. Detailed lithostratigraphical observations and area-wide, closely spaced structural measurements allowed a much more detailed depiction of the highly variable lithological assemblage, as well as of the complex structural evolution. Lithostratigraphical indications, such as the distribution of Mn-mineralization and sequential repetition of characteristic marker successions, suggest that the whole-rock pile of the Cycladic Blueschist Unit on Syros, including meta-ophiolites and metasediments, retains numerous primary depositional features. Magmatic activity in an Upper Cretaceous backarc environment was likely to be contemporaneous with the deposition of the sedimentary protoliths comprising the main lithological succession on Syros. The structural evolution of the Cycladic Blueschist Unit on Syros comprises multiphase isoclinal intrafolial folding and ductile thrusting, regarded as essentially burial related and terminating close to peak metamorphic conditions, either prograde or very early on the retrograde path. Especially in areas where blueschist- to eclogite-facies metamorphism is undisturbed, high-pressure fabrics are well preserved. The retrograde evolution was accompanied by heterogeneously distributed, weakly developed extensional tectonics and episodical, contractional deformation, followed by intense brittle transpressional and transtensional tectonics, disrupting the rock sequence since Miocene to subrecent times.

The Island by Reeves Shields Summary

During World War II, a Nazi submarine landed two men on a beautiful island off the coast of Georgia. These two soldiers were ordered to bury money that was intended to be used by Nazi saboteurs to incapacitate a large and busy shipyard. The saboteurs' plot was eventually discovered, and the Nazi soldiers were returned to Germany. In the 1950s, the same island attracts an interesting cast of characters. An olive-skinned beauty named Veronica and a blonde young man named Steven decide to live together in an old house that has been long abandoned, yet is still habitable. An escaped convict, fleeing from prison authorities on a nearby island, turns up as well. And four young men from the local mainland camp out on the island to enjoy a pleasant getaway. All of these island visitors struggle through trials and tribulations...with one another and with wild and dangerous animals. At the same time, three German ex-soldiers who know about the previously buried money arrive to claim the cash. Instead, they meet up with a big, disappointing and unforeseen surprise. Reeves Shields is inspired by great writers and great science. He is a former defense industry worker who now devotes himself full time to writing. Shields grew up in a small town on the coast of Georgia and now lives near Washington, D.C. As a boy, he enjoyed camping out on islands off the coast of Georgia.
