Manual on Usage & Style

Legal writers have valued the MoUS for years for its convenience and accessibility, and the new edition stays true to these strengths. The MoUS complements more comprehensive usage and style guides by combining an easy-to-use, brief format with sufficient detail to explain subtle aspects of rules. This edition features several changes:

Retains the basic organization of past volumes, but contains a more intuitive rule-numbering scheme;

Incorporates many new examples to better illustrate tricky concepts;

Improves many examples and subrules to show nuances in usage;

Has conformed certain rules that previously conflicted with Bluebook citation rules.
The MoUS 12th edition remains a valuable tool for law journals, practicing attorneys, and other legal writers.

Smoke house for smoking Buffalo meat.

Title: Smoke house for smoking Buffalo meat.

Creator: Robertson, George (photographer)

Contributors: Oliphant, W. J. (publisher)

Date: 1874

Series: Life on the Frontier

Description: In 1874 W. J. Oliphant published a series of stereoscopic views of a Texas buffalo hunt. The photographs were taken in and around Taylor County, near present-day Abilene and Buffalo Gap, by an Oliphant friend and part-time employee, George Robertson. In addition to skinning and collecting buffalo hides for sale, the hunters also used buffalo meat for food. The meat was salted and put into a pit lined with buffalo hides. After about a week, the meat was removed and placed on wooden racks inside a home-made smoke house. The meat was smoked slowly for a couple of weeks until a good crust had formed over the meat inside, thus making it easier for the hunters to store and transport it in their wagons. This view shows a hunter standing beside one of the smokehouses built during this hunt. Source: Lawrence T. Jones III.

Physical Description: 1 photographic print on stereo card: stereograph, albumen; 11.3 x 18 cm.

The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture: Volume 10: Law and Politics

Volume 10 of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture combines two of the sections from the original edition, adding extensive updates and 53 entirely new articles. In the law section of this volume, 16 longer essays address broad concepts ranging from law schools to family law, from labor relations to school prayer. The 43 topical entries focus on specific legal cases and individuals, including historical legal professionals, parties from landmark cases, and even the fictional character Atticus Finch, highlighting the roles these individuals have played in shaping the identity of the region.

The politics section includes 34 essays on matters such as Reconstruction, social class and politics, and immigration policy. New essays reflect the changing nature of southern politics, away from the one-party system long known as the “solid South” to the lively two-party politics now in play in the region. Seventy shorter topical entries cover individual politicians, political thinkers, and activists who have made significant contributions to the shaping of southern politics.

Dona Flor: A Tall Tale About a Giant Woman with a Great Big Heart

Doña Flor is a giant lady who lives in a tiny village in the American Southwest. Popular with her neighbors, she lets the children use her flowers as trumpets and her leftover tortillas as rafts. Flor loves to read, too, and she can often be found reading aloud to the children.

One day, all the villagers hear a terrifying noise: it sounds like a huge animal bellowing just outside their village. Everyone is afraid, but not Flor. She wants to protect her beloved neighbors, so with the help of her animal friends, she sets off for the highest mesa to find the creature. Soon enough, though, the joke is on Flor and her friends, who come to rescue her, as she discovers the small secret behind that great big noise.

The creators of Tomás and the Library Lady, Pat Mora and Raul Colón, have once again joined together. This time they present a heartwarming and humorous original tall tale—peppered with Spanish words and phrases—about a giant lady with a great big heart.

Texas: A Historical Atlas

For twenty years the Historical Atlas of Texas stood as a trusted resource for students and aficionados of the state. Now this key reference has been thoroughly updated and expanded–and even rechristened. Texas: A Historical Atlas more accurately reflects the Lone Star State at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Its 86 entries feature 175 newly designed maps–more than twice the number in the original volume–illustrating the most significant aspects of the state’s history, geography, and current affairs.

The heart of the book is its wealth of historical information. Sections de-voted to indigenous peoples of Texas and its exploration and settlement offer more than 45 entries with visual depictions of everything from the routes of Spanish explorers to empresario grants to cattle trails. In another 31 articles, coverage of modern and contemporary Texas takes in hurricanes and highways, power plants and population trends.

Practically everything about this atlas is new. All of the essays have been updated to reflect recent scholarship, while more than 30 appear for the first time, addressing such subjects as the Texas Declaration of Independence, early roads, slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction, Texas-Oklahoma boundary disputes, and the tideland oil controversy. A dozen new entries for “Contemporary Texas” alone chart aspects of industry, agriculture, and minority demographics. Nearly all of the expanded essays are accompanied by multiple maps–every one in full color.

The most comprehensive, state-of-the-art work of its kind, Texas: A Historical Atlas is more than just a reference. It is a striking visual introduction to the Lone Star State.
