Title: Voices from Wounded Knee, 1973: In the Words of the Participants
Author: uncredited author
Publisher: Akwesasne Notes
City: Roosevelttown, New York
Year: 1974
Printing Information: First Edition
Binding Style: Perfect Binding
Pagination: viii/263 pages
Width: 10" Height: 8.25"
Book Details: "The Wounded Knee incident began on February 27, 1973 when about 200 Oglala Lakota and followers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) seized and occupied the town of Wounded Knee, South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The protest followed the failure of an effort of the Ogala Civil Rights Organization (OSCRO) to impeach tribal president Richard Wilson, whom they accused of corruption and abuse of opponents. Additionally, protestors attacked the United States government's failure to fulfill treaties with Indian peoples and demanded the reopening of treaty negotiations.

Oglala and AIM activists controlled the town for 71 days while the United States Marshals Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and other law enforcement agencies cordoned off the area. One of the Marshals involved in the operation was Tommy Robinson, later a United States Representative from Arkansas. The activists chose the site of the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre for its symbolic value. Both sides were armed and shooting was frequent. A US Marshall was paralyzed from a gunshot wound early during the occupation, and later died from complications; a Cherokee and an Oglala Lakota were killed by shootings in April 1973. Ray Robinson, a civil rights activist who joined the protesters, disappeared during the events and is believed to have been murdered. Due to damage to the houses, the small community was not reoccupied until the 1990s" (from Wikipedia entry)

Lot 2079

$300

Book Details: This is a very special collection of scholarly and academic books on the theory, practice, and history of communism. This collection was curated by a prominent scholar on the subject, and reflects his erudition, discrimination, and care. In addition to much primary source material by Marx, Engels, Plekhanov, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Earl Browder, analysis and commentary is provided philosophers, historians, literary theorists, and other scholars. The collection is broad-based, and includes the historian Charles Nordhoff's work on American utopian, communistic societies, such as the Amana, the Oneida, and others. Communism is considered in a global context, with works not only on Russia/USSR but also on China and its revolutions (including the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s), Cuba, and Marxist thought and influence in India. Among the many notable volumes in this group is a first edition of "Socialism: Utopian and Scientific," by Frederic Engels (1902); and "Indian Atheism: A Marxist Analysis" (1969), which is inscribed by its author, Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya. This collection is a truly valuable resource on the history of communist thought.

These books were selected by Dale Maurice Riepe, a Professor of Philosophy at the University at Buffalo from 1963 to 1986. Prior to Buffalo, Riepe taught at the universities of North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, as well as at C. W. Post College where he was Associate Director of Humanities.

Riepe's traveled extensively, with a particular interest in India and Japan which were furthered with Fulbright awards to India and the University of Tokyo. He also taught in the Soviet Union and in China, and served as a consultant to the Institute of Science, Technology, and Development in New Delhi, India. During his career, he published over seventy peer-reviewed articles.

Title: Scenario and Screen
Author: Frances Taylor Patterson - Frances Taylor Patterson was one of the earliest instructors of photoplay composition at Columbia University, which offered the first academic courses on film in the United States. Patterson was the first to argue that film was a distinct art, separate from theater and literature, as well as the first to use film and movie clips in film instruction. She was so influential that her books on screenwriting and film criticism are still frequently cited today, and she plays a significant role in scholarship on early film education.
