Walla Walla Union Bulletin (Newspaper) - March 4, 2021, Walla Walla, WashingtonB2 Walla Walla Union-Bulletin MARQUEE Thursday, March 4, 2021WW author's book scoops Boston College profs by 25 years COVER TO COVER By ANNIE CHARNLEYEVELAÑD of the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin “How the South Finally Won the Civil War. And Controls the Political Future of the United States," by Charies Potts, hardbound, 439 pages. Tsunami Press, Walia Waila. The book is avaiiable from Potts for $30 at P.O. Box 100, Waiia Waiia, WA, 99362, and from booksetlers in Walla Walla and online. Walla Walla businessman, poet and author Charles Potts is ahead of the curve. His opus, “How the South Finally Won the Civil War: And Controls the Political Future of the United States,” came out in 1995, a good Vk decades before the next book to tackle the subject. Fast forward to 2020 when Boston College professor and Harvard University alumna Heather Cox Richardson produced “How the South Won the Civil War; Oligarchy, Democracy, and the Continuing Fight for the Soul of America,” press published by Oxford University. “The point being that 1 scooped a Harvard-educated historian and Oxford University Press to the correct information by 25 years,” Potts said. “1 believe notice needs to be taken of that fact.” He started charlespotts. com to help make the news public. Potts’ narrative is based on the historical record of Southern policy, starting with the British colony at Charleston, South Carolina, in 1670. It examines the way intervention-free economic ideas of exploitation, racism and contempt for democracy and the environment were the basis of the difference between the North and South that led to the Civil War. Between 1865-1945, the South has regained control of the American federal government, Potts maintains. Five of the pons six things the South fought for during the Civil War are now public policy, he said. Potts’ 439-page tome garnered a variety of positive reviews, including these: “This book reminds me of Karl Marx’s ‘Capital’... The great contribution Potts makes is in his consideration of militarism as the state religion,” wrote Paul Cardwell Jr. with The Paris (Texas) News. “This is a book no public library’s history collection should be without,” said Mike Finley in Techno Craze. And Russ Greene, with The Gilmer (Texas) Mirror, wrote, “No one should acquire this book thinking the author is a Confederate sympathizer. Far from it... The case he presents is compelling and convincing... a book well worth reading.” bachelor’s in English recently completed a new book, as yet unpublished, “The Fifth Convulsion: The Structure of American History.” “At the glacial pace the establishment moves, I have reasons to think that I will be scooping them on this subject as well,” he said. Embodied in the current convulsion are the COVID-19 pandemic, systemic racism, political and economic disasters and the onrushing global warming catastrophe, Potts said. Convulsions that preceded it are King Philip’s War, an armed conflict in 1675-1678 between indigenous New England inhabitants and New England colonists and their indigenous allies; the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the Great Depression, followed by World War II.

It will be a Zoom presentation this time. See the Time Capsule for details. Crime scene investigation techniques have helped the work of Brenda Baker, a bio-archaeologist at Arizona State, who will report her findings from examination of human burials at the town of Polis (formerly Arsinoe, even more anciently, Marion) in the northwest part of the island of Cy- BAKER prus, off the coast of Lebanon. At safe distance, we in Walla Walla can learn about this from Baker. She will speak on March 12, see details in the Time Capsule. She specializes in bioarchaeology, human osteology and paleopathology. She is also co-editor-in-chief of Bioarchaeology International and worked in Sudan and Cyprus. Studying bones, teeth and other tissues (when available) can give us extraordinary knowledge of past peoples. Not only does ancient DNA tell us about human mating patterns, migrations and even social structures; but also study of the chemical isotopes of dental plaque can give us remarkably precise information about where people have lived — especially interesting if that was not close to where their bones are found. Excavating in Sudan, Baker found the skeleton of a mother Brenda Baker analyzes bone fragments in the lab.TIME CAPSULE ■ March 11,7:30 p.m.: “Life and Death in Medieval Polis, Cyprus," by Brenda Baker.

To attend, email Sarah Davies, president of the Walla Walla AIA chapter, for a link at ■ April 22,7:30 p.m.: “Colonial Collecting, Postcolonial Preserving: Understanding the History of the Sutro Egyptian Collection and Mummies,” by Lissette Jiménez.

The head of her baby was still in her pelvis. “You have intense emotional swings when you’re excavating something like that,” she said. In Cyprus, she found, in cemeteries from the Middle Ages from roughly 600 to 1400 AD, evidence for the sexual division of labor. Patterns of grooves and notches on anterior teeth suggest their use in textile production and is found mainly in females. Bone needles occurred with three of these women, and features on their bones are consistent with occupational stress attributed to tailors and associated with habitual kneeling, squatting and sitting. Healed fractures are far more common in males, indicating that their work put them at greater risk of accidental injuries. Women, however, disproportionately suffered violent trauma. The prevalence of infection is low, although one young adult female was afflicted with leprosy — the only archaeological example documented on the island to date. In 2020, Cyprus, blessed .with its Mediterranean climate and 3,200 hours of sunshine per year, vs. 1,540 for London and 2,740 for Walla Walla, beaches and cuisine — a mouth-watering amalgam of Near-Eastern, Greek and North African, the origin of cauliflower and hal-loumi cheese — has become a major tourist hub. It ranks 29th in the world for its tourism economy and is now regarded as one of the world’s wealthy countries. Cyprus is better known today as an ongoing source of strife between Greece and Tlirkey, which have both occupied the island and claimed ownership of the whole of it. It is now, technically, an independent republic. Of the two powers, Tlirkey has been the worse-behaved, forcibly moving civilians in defiance of various international court rulings and invading the country in 1974. Cyprus continues to suffer a TYirkish military presence in the north, with associated cultural destruction and ethnic cleansing. Maybe it’s always been a violent place. My own studies of Cyprus, and its important ancient alphabet, stem from the fact that in the Bronze Age, roughly 4,000 to 1,000 B.C., Cyprus was the major source of copper, an essential ingredient in bronze, in the eastern Mediterranean. In fact our word “copper” ultimately derives from the name of the island — it’s basically a big lump of copper stuck into the sea. And, it seems it has been a locus of warfare for thousands of years. Cypriots are recorded in Egyptian writings describing the violent regional upheavals around 1100 BC, and archaeologists have found evidence of destruction and later rebuilding. Unfortunately for Cyprus and its inhabitants, not only does it possess mineral wealth, but it’s also perilously close to the shores of its corner of the Mediterranean, with the same result that we see today: people from different countries find it convenient for invasion, ^ In the Middle Ages it was the scene of conflict between Greeks and people of the Levant (Lebanon, Palestine and Syria today), Muslims and Crusaders, Venetians and TUrks. Cities and castles were fortified with thick walls. In spite of them, raids and massacres were common and brutal. So, Cyprus is a mixed bag: not always the scene of invasion, but by no means always a beach-lover’s paradise, either.

Walla Walla University professor’s artwork on exhibit By the Walla Walla Union-Bullelin Through his art, Walla Walla Walla University professor and artist Matthew Pierce explores ideas and assumptions attached to commonplace and nostalgic objects, revealing in them how perceptions are possibly altered by one’s time and perspective of the subjects. His work will be featured in the Analog Life exhibit at Combine Art Collective, 130 E. Rose St., in The Showroom on Colville. Viewing hours are lla.m.-5p.m. Thursday-Sunday. Pierce earned an art degree from WWU and a master’s of fine arts from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. For Pierce, the canvas has increasingly become an experimentation with different techniques of paint application. Particularly interested in exploring the line between traditional representation and abstraction, Pierce’s paintings reflect his simultaneous use of both approaches. His paintings are characterized by broad exuberant brushstroke applications of paint, color and tonal harmonies, giving objects an essence of joy and a wry plaj^ulness.
