April 2012

Winding Down

The Minnesota Legislature will soon complete its work and adjourn sine die (“without a day”), completing the 87th legislative session since statehood. With the end of the legislative biennium, members, staff, and others closely involved with the legislature look forward to a change of pace; more time with families, a chance to get caught up with tasks or projects deferred during the session, and a chance to relax and take a break – maybe even read a book!

While the Legislative Library’s collection isn’t brimming with the latest best-sellers, we can recommend a few recent additions that are worth taking the time to peruse.

A glimpse of Minnesota’s history is offered by two publications comprised chiefly of photographic images.

Connected to Our Roots: 100 Years of Growing Forests in Minnesota. Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources, 2010. (SD144.M6 C664 2010) -- Photos of Minnesota’s people, towns, and businesses that tell the story of the state’s forests and lumber industry.

The Stillwater Cultural Landscape District, Stillwater, Minnesota. Minnesota Dept. of Transportation; Landscape Research LLC, 2011. (F614.S86 S75 2011) -- A collection of beautiful, interesting photos of Stillwater and the St. Croix River Valley.

Another title examines the history of protests in Minnesota:

Gilman, Rhoda R. Stand Up: the Story of Minnesota’s Protest Tradition. Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2012. (HN79.M6 G55 2012)

With his new book, Anton Treuer provides answers to more than 120 questions about the history, culture, and traditions of North America’s native people:

Treuer, Anton. Everything You Wanted to Know about Indians But Were Afraid to Ask. Borealis Books, 2012. (E77 .T795 2012)

Two other titles provide in-depth examinations of issues currently in the news:

Carpenter, Dale. Flagrant Conduct: The Story of Lawrence v. Texas: How a Bedroom Arrest Decriminalized Gay Americans.W.W. Norton & Company, 2012. (KF224.L39 C37 2012)

Winkler, Adam. Gunfight: the Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America. W.W. Norton & Company, 2011. (KF3941 .W56 2011)
