Milwaukee was home to the Great Circus Parade for almost 30 years. Beginning in 1963 and continuing until 1972, the parade became an annual tradition, except in 1967 when the event was cancelled because of civil unrest. Revived on a smaller scale in 1980, the parade traveled between Baraboo and Chicago until it returned to Milwaukee in 1985. Each year, it grew in size and scope, gaining national prominence. The old-fashioned circus parade became an event of mammoth proportions, requiring an army of volunteers working behind the scenes.

The circus is a dazzling world filled with acrobats and harlequins, tumblers and riders, monsters and celestial creatures. Now this engaging book sets that world in a new light, examining how painters, sculptors, and photographers from the eighteenth century to the present have used the circus as a springboard for their imaginative expression and have envisioned the clown as a metaphor for the modern artist. The book presents more than 175 works by such artists as Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rouault, Picasso, Chagall, and Léger. Some of these are masterful works shown for the first time; these range from the 18-meter stage curtain Picasso designed in 1917 for Erik Satie’s ballet Parade to more intimate works such as Nadar and Tournachon’s photographs of Pierrot as played by celebrated mime Charles Debureau.

In Europe, Indian hobbyism, or Indianism, has developed out of a strong fascination with Native American life in the 18th and 19thcenturies. 'Indian hobbyists' dress in homemade replicas of clothing, craft museum-quality replicas of artifacts, meet in fields dotted with teepees and re-enact aspects of the North American Indian lifestyle, using ethnographies, travel diaries, and museum collections as resources. Grounded in fieldwork set among networks of Indian hobbyists in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and the Czech Republic, this ethnography analyzes this contemporary practice of serious leisure with respect to the general human desire for play, metaphor, and allusion. It provides insights into the increasing popularity of re-enactment practices as they relate to a deeper understanding of human perception, imagination, and creativity.

Ignaz J. Reilly - ein 'Wirrkopf von Gottes Gnaden, ein fetter Don Quijote, ein perverser Thomas von Aquin' und in der Tat einer der originellsten Helden, den die amerikanische Literatur je hervorgebracht hat. Eines Tages nun wird dieser sich bisher stoisch jeder produktiven Betätigung verweigernde Fleischberg von seiner Mutter gezwungen, sich nach einem Job umsehen. Reillys berufliche Odyssee führt ihn von einer heruntergekommenen Hosenfabrik - in der er das Problem der Ablage mit Hilfe des Papierkorbs löst und eine Revolte unter den schwarzen Arbeitern anzettelt - ins French Quarter von New Orleans, wo ihm ein fahrbare Wurststand anvertraut wird. Aber auch dieser Beruf bietet keine Zukunft, denn als Hot-Dog-Verkäufer ist er sein bester Kunde. Ignaz trägt sich indes bald mit neuen Plänen - Er wird eine Partei gründen, eine Partei der Sodomiten.
