Excerpt from An Authentic and Comprehensive History of Buffalo, Vol. 1 Their social habits and moral character have been equally misrepresent ed, and misunderstood. Before they had became contaminated by their intercourse with Europeans, they might in many respects have served as patterns for our imitation. The hospitality of these Indians, (says Golden) is no less remarkable, than their virtue; as soon as any stran ger comes, they are sure to offer him victuals. If there be several in com pany, and come from afar, one of their best houses is cleaned, and given up for their entertainment. Their complaisance on these occasions, goes even farther than christian civility allows of, as they have no other rule for it, than the furnishing their guest with everything they think will be agreeable to him.

The Social Ideas of American Physicians (1776-1976)

This study makes the provocative claim that the social lives of physicians are dramatically intertwined with their practice of medicine. It illustrates through detailed examination of the lives of individual physicians how social orientations and social contexts shape medical practice. In doing so, it challenges the claim that advances in medical practice evolve ineluctably from the sequential uncovering of scientific facts. Instead, discoveries emerge from the social concerns of physicians and their immersion in community affairs. The book also demonstrates that physicians are frequently looked down on or even censured for their social involvements - punished, in effect, for the very activities that facilitated their great discoveries. The Social Ideas of American Physicians explores the social orientations, views, and actions of American physicians from postrevolutionary years to the revolutions of rising expectations that characterized social change in mid-twentieth century. It considers the doctors most often discussed in medical history volumes as a basis of selection. Of necessity it also deals with certain physicians who seem to have been pushed toward oblivion because of their association with black slavery, women's rights, the plight of the poor, pacifism, and other reform movements. Presented here is a documentation of these basic themes. This book examines the doctors most often chosen as examples who have been discussed in medical histories and the volumes of The Dictionary of American Biography and The Dictionary of American Medical History Biography (1984), which undoubtedly eliminated many worthy physicians who were leaders in their communities but were recognized only for their medical skills. The social movements - the crusades - of the last two hundred fifty years are the organizing themes of this study, thus several outstanding physicians, who may not be found in standard references, are included. Those who were criticized, for example, when they acted to cleanse the world of the dread disease of fascism included California physicians of the stature of Thomas Addis, who treated Bright's disease; Leo Eloessner, the noted chest surgeon; Milton Terris, editor of The Journal of Public Health Policy; and Edward Barsky of New York City, who offered his life to help Spanish people in their civil war. Some readers may be disturbed by the tendency of the author to associate quality medical practice with social concern and action. But Rudolph Virchow, M.D., the noted German pathologist, insisted that "medicine is a social science." Others who hold with Oliver Wendell Holmes, M.D., that the doctor as well as the tailor should "stick to his last" may fear the apparent adulteration of responsible medical practice by involvement in social reform. Though this issue may remain a bone of contention of medical history, the discussions presented here give credit to many physicians who fought against social injustice as well as physical illness with the conviction that they served Hippocrates even better.

Explore the classic and modern food traditions of Buffalo Buffalo isn’t just a city full of great wings. There is a great hot dog tradition, from Greek- originated “Texas red hots” to year-round charcoal-grilling at Ted’s that puts Manhattan’s dirty water dogs to shame. This is also a city of great sandwiches. It’s a place where capicola gets layered on grilled sausage, where sautéed dandelions traditionally make up the greens in a comestible called steak- in-the-grass, and chicken fingers pack into soft Costanzo’s sub rolls with Provolone, tomato, lettuce, blue cheese dressing, and Frank’s RedHot Sauce to become something truly naughty. Food and travel writer Arthur Bovino ate his research, taking the reader to the bars, the old-school Polish and Italian-American eateries, the Burmese restaurants, and the new-school restaurants tapping into the region’s rich agricultural bounty. With all this experience under his belt (and stretching it), Bovino has created the essential guide to food in Buffalo.

A new and complete history of Zululand, and its destruction at the hands of the British in 1879. This book is not only a complete history of the Zulus but also an account of the way the British won absolute rule in South Africa. In the early decades of the nineteenth century, Shaka Zulu established a nation in south-east Africa which was to become the most politically sophisticated and militarily powerful black nation in the entire area. Although the Zulus never had any quarrel with their British neighbours, the rulers of the Cape Colony could not conceive of them as anything but a threat. In 1879, under dubious pretences, the British finally crossed the Buffalo River, and embarked on a bloody war that was to rock the very foundations of the British Empire. The story is studded with tales of incredible heroism, drama and atrocity on both sides: the Battle of Isandlwana, where the Zulus inflicted on the British the worst defeat a modern army has ever suffered at the hands of men without guns; Rorke's Drift, where a handful of British troops beat off thousands of Zulu warriors and won a record 11 VCs; and Ulundi, where the Zulus were finally crushed in a battle that was to herald some of the most shameful episodes in British Colonial history. Comprehensive, vast in scope, and filled with original and up-to-date research, this is a book that is set to replace all standard works on the subject.

Told from the Native American point of view, Black Elk’s Vision provides a unique perspective on American history. From recounting the visions Black Elk had as a young boy, to his involvement in the battles of Little Big Horn and Wounded Knee, as well as his journeys to New York City and Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, this biographical account of Black Elk—an Oglala-Lakota medicine man (1863–1950)—follows him from childhood through adulthood. S. D. Nelson tells the story of Black Elk through the medicine man’s voice, bringing to life what it was like to be Native American in the mid-to-late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The Native people found their land overrun by the Wha-shi-choos, or White Man, the buffalo slaughtered for sport and to purposely eliminate their main food source, and their people gathered onto reservations. Through it all, Black Elk clung to his childhood visions that planted the seeds to help his people—and all people—understand their place in the circle of life. The book includes archival images, a timeline, a bibliography, an index, and Nelson’s signature art. Praise for the work of S. D.

His contemporaries called him Wild Bill, and newspapermen and others made him a legend in his own time. Among western characters only General George Armstrong Custer and Buffalo Bill Cody are as readily recognized by the general public. In writing this biography, Joseph G. Rosa has expressed the hope that "Hickok emerges as a man and not a legend." For this comprehensive revision of his earlier biography of Wild Bill the author was allowed to work from newly available materials in the possession of the Hickok family. He also discovered new material pertaining to Wild Bill’s Civil War exploits and his service as a marshal and found the pardon file of his murderer, John McCall. Additional, rare photographs of Wild Bill are published here for the first time. The results of Rosa’s additional research make this second edition the best biography of Wild Bill likely to be written for years to come.
