Men of Fire

José Clemente Orozco
and Jackson Pollock

The frst scholarly foray into the artistic
relationship between the Mexican muralist
and the American abstract expressionist

In 1936, Jackson Pollock traveled to Dartmouth
College to view José Clemente Orozco’s mural
Te Epic of American Civilization, which had
been unveiled in Baker Library two years
earlier. Te deep impact that the imagery
of these frescoes had on the young artist is
demonstrated by the drawings and oil paintings
that Pollock made afer this visit. In these
works Pollock explored myth, ritual, and the
creative and destructive power of fre in ways
directly inspired by Orozco’s art. Te essays
in this volume will examine the importance
that Orozco’s work had for Pollock during this
pivotal moment in his career and bring together
for the frst time the work of two of the most
famous artists of the twentieth century.

john seaman and john t. landry

The story of Mylan,
one of the world’s
leading generic
and specialty

Founded in 1961 by two entrepreneurs with a
keen sense of the marketplace, Mylan helped
to create an industry from scratch—and then
led the way as that industry grew rapidly in
the following decades. Te rise of generic
pharmaceuticals was not inevitable, though.
Countless barriers threatened to slow their
acceptance. Mylan’s disciplined atention to
quality—combined with a willingness to break
with convention even afer its early successes—
enabled the company to overcome these barriers.
Published in Mylan’s ffieth anniversary
year, this book explains how one unconventional
company learned to survive and thrive in the
highly regulated, hyper-competitive world of
generic pharmaceuticals.
