Through deaf eyes ( visu )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,180 libraries worldwide
Exploring nearly 200 years of Deaf life in America, this film presents the shared experiences of American history--family life, education, work, and community connections--from the perspective of deaf citizens. Interviews include community leaders, historians, and deaf Americans with diverse views on language use, technology, and identity. The documentary also takes a straightforward look at life for people who are part of the cultural-linguistic group who use American Sign Language and often define themselves as "Deaf" with a capital and cultural "D" and deaf people who, for a variety of reasons, do not identify with the Deaf cultural community. The history often shows that intersections between deaf and Deaf people are many and that oppression and discrimination are common experiences

Through deaf eyes : a photographic history of an American community by Douglas C Baynton( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 634 libraries worldwide
In 2001, the Smithsonian Institution presented the landmark photographic exhibition History Through Deaf Eyes, representing nearly 200 years of United States deaf history. Drawing heavily on the extensive archives at Gallaudet University, the curators created an exhibition that drew more than 400,000 people viewed at the Smithsonian and in 12 cities during a five-year national tour. Its popularity prompted the production of a documentary film for national broadcast on the Public Broadcasting System. Now, the photographs, quotes, and stories from this remarkable exhibit and documentary have been assembled in a book of stunning beauty and poignant images, Through Deaf Eyes: A Photographic History of an American Community. Featuring more than 200 full-color photographs, Through Deaf Eyes depicts the story of Deaf America and also affords readers the opportunity to learn about the nation's broader history. The values and judgments of society have had an impact on the education, employment, and family life of deaf people, while historical eras often can be illuminated by examination through a Deaf lens. Photographs reveal the character of Deaf people in school settings, the workplace, during wartime, and using their cultural signature, American Sign Language. For both deaf and hearing readers, the Deaf community portrayed in Through Deaf Eyes offers a unique and fascinating perspective on the value of human difference. ... Publisher description

Murder in twos and threes : a task force novel by Jack R Gannon( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, and a variety of other surreptitious domestic threats and crimes that subsequently occurred throughout the nation in the following years, the Joint Chiefs of Staff endeavored to implement a new, powerful clandestine Task Force to discretely take care of such nuisances and just in time. A serial killer with an obsession for planning out murders in sets of Twos and Threes has plagued the City of Richmond, Virginia for many years. After almost two decades of being beleaguered and abused at home, a once-innocent child turned adult sociopath/psychopath takes "righteous" revenge with nerve-jangling paranoia, leaving Biblical quotes at each crime scene. In due time the media labels the mysterious assassin as the "Biblical Bomber." The Task Force, all former military officers and the best-of-the-best, leads the battle with highly-developed rearmaments to aid in their profile, capture and hopeful dispatch of the serial killer by any means possible. For years, the Task Force remains stymied, along with the local and state authorities, in their efforts to find the inexorable villain. The compelling search turns the hunter into the hunted. Jason Enterprises, a private company that specializes in top-secret, experimental development contracts for the United States Government and its Military, steps into the picture. The pragmatic President of the company, Mark Jason, becomes an unusual kind of hero in a new and uncertain age. The former Navy officer interjects his superior intelligence, clever plotting, and a few ironic twists and turns when he joins the Task Force in an effort to challenge the darkness and emotional complexity of a killer that haunts the city. His team comes equipped with uncanny, bizarre, and ingenious specialties of their own, forming a superior team of four (with curious code names) that brilliantly executes its talents in an effort to undermine the enemy
