Winner of the 2011 New Mexico Book Award in the multi-cultural catagory Jlin-tay-i-tith, better known as Loco, was the only Apache leader to make a lasting peace with both Americans and Mexicans. Yet most historians have ignored his efforts, and some Chiricahua descendants have branded him as fainthearted despite his well-known valor in combat. In this engaging biography, Bud Shapard tells the story of this important but overlooked chief against the backdrop of the harrowing Apache wars and eventual removal of the tribe from its homeland to prison camps in Florida, Alabama, and Oklahoma. Tracing the events of Loco’s long tenure as a leader of the Warm Springs Chiricahua band, Shapard tells how Loco steered his followers along a treacherous path of unforeseeable circumstances and tragic developments in the mid-to-late 1800s. While recognizing the near-impossibility of Apache-American coexistence, Loco persevered in his quest for peace against frustrating odds and often treacherous U.S. government policy. Even as Geronimo, Naiche, and others continued their raiding and sought to undermine Loco’s efforts, this visionary chief, motivated by his love for children, maintained his commitment to keep Apache families safe from wartime dangers. Based on extensive research, including interviews with Loco’s grandsons and other descendants, Shapard’s biography is an important counterview for historians and buffs interested in Apache history and a moving account of a leader ahead of his time.

Biological studies suggest that the creation of MEAs has been successful. My research confirms these findings, while also illuminating how MEAs behave economically. Though this research identifies a number of MEAs that have fish stocks that are declining, fish stocks in most MEAs increased significantly after MEAs were established, and are currently stable or still increasing. The internal management practices of fishermen groups continue to evolve in nearly all groups and there is a wide range of different self-enforced rule systems that have been adopted by different MEAs, but all aim to rationalize fishing effort and share fishing proceeds.

This investigation focuses on recent graduates of MA TESOL programs, exploring how they fare in community college classrooms and what implications this has for their graduate preparation. I draw upon an online survey, in-person interviews, and a variety of documents in order to explore the gender dynamics of ESL training and teaching. I posit a tension between (on the one hand) the community college ESL faculty, who construct themselves, their backgrounds, and their students using categories typically characterized as feminine, and (on the other hand) their TESOL programs, which they construct using rnasculinized terms. The ESL teachers view their role as in loco maternis, but the training programs prepare them in a way they perceive as masculine. The gendered lenses structure the disparate worlds of native-English-speaking ESL teachers and their teacher trainers.
