The Quantuck Lane Press, New York: 2003. 0971454892 / 9780971454897 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Since 1998, Greg Halpern has been photographing Harvard University's lowest-paid service workers - its custodians, security guards, and food-service employees - while at the same time collecting remarkably candid interviews with them. Many of Halpern's photographs are deceptively straightforward portraits, driven by subtlety and deeply charged by the fact that he spent days - and nights - with his subjects before making his photographs. In the spirit of James Agee and Walker Evans, this stunning collection of photographs and interviews, at once profoundly sensitive and provocatively irreverent, is bound to set a new landmark in the field of documentary work.

157 HENRICKS, THOMAS S. Play And The Human Condition.
University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015. h Hardcover as issued without dustjacket. Brand new book. 
A cutting-edge reappraisal of the causes, contours, and consequences of play In Play and the Human Condition, Thomas Henricks brings together ways of considering play to probe its essential relationship to work, ritual, and communitas. Focusing on five contexts for play--the psyche, the body, the environment, society, and culture--Henricks identifies conditions that instigate play, and comments on its implications for those settings. Offering a general theory of play as behavior promoting self-realization, Henricks articulates a conception of self that includes individual and social identity, particular and transcendent connection, and multiple fields of involvement. Henricks also evaluates play styles from history and contemporary life to analyze the relationship between play and human freedom. Imaginative and stimulating, Play and the Human Condition shows how play allows us to learn about our qualities and those of the world around us--and in so doing make sense of ourselves. "Profound and reasonable, accessible and well-written, and wide-ranging while confident of the details of past scholarship and current theory over a range of disciplines. This work will help shape and unify the field of play studies. I have not read its equal; in fact, there is nothing elsewhere quite like it."--Scott G. Eberle, vice president for play studies at The Strong National Museum of Play Thomas S. Henricks is the Danieley Professor of Sociology at Elon University and author of Play Reconsidered: Sociological Perspectives on Human Expression. "Thomas Henricks provides us with a completely new way of looking at children's play. He skillfully separates out the existing theories and then brings them back together to provide his own unique perspective. This book makes the most significant contribution to the field of play theory since Brian Sutton-Smith's seminal work, The Ambiguity of Play. It is stimulating and challenging, but at the same time most enjoyable to read."--Fraser Brown, author of Rethinking Children's Play "Students across disciplines will find here a thoughtful analysis of physiological, environmental, psychological, cultural, and social theories about how play changes and sustains people across generations. This timely work addresses the rapidly expanding knowledge and promise of play as well as trends such as consumerism and computer play that potentially diminish the spirit of play and quality of life across societies."--Joe L. Frost, author of Play and Child Development
