Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : To reach freedom, the most famous escapers of all time have been willing to endure the most horrific conditions--and the direst consequences if caught. The collection of tales in The Greatest Escape Stories Ever Told is gripping as only true life-and-death struggles can be: Papillon fighting through the jungles of Guiana only to commit himself to the open ocean in a sixteen-foot boat rather than face a life in exile; Rocky Gause dodging bullets as he swims through shark-infested waters to escape the Japanese at Bataan, while those around him simply quit; Latude battling against the dreaded Bastille; Baron Trenck--with chains covering almost every inch of his body--digging and digging to free himself from wrongful imprisonment; Andre Devigny, so weak from starvation and poor treatment that he could barely lift himself, shimmying across a rope only yards above a German sentry during World War II on the eve of his execution. These are just a few of the twenty-five bold and ingenious tales of escape included in this collection. The Greatest Escape Stories Ever Told will hold readers captive for years to come

Brain: A 21st Century Look at a 400 Million Year Old Organ

Product : Brain: A 21st Century Look at a 400 Million Year Old Organ
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Brain: A 21st Century Look at a 400 Million Year Old Organ (Bunker Hill Publishing; available: October 2010) is the companion volume to the highly acclaimed Bones, Brains and DNA, and is based on a new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History that opens November 3rd, 2010. Is the brain something that works the way it is supposed to like a computer or something that works not quite as well as it is supposed to like a Rube Goldberg contraption? Brains have different purposes depending on whether you are a mouse (it's useful to smell well) or a human (you need to walk on two feet) or a whale (you need to know where you are in the ocean) and for all these purposes and others you need a brain. What kind of a brain does a fruit fly have? Do plants need brains or can they get by without one? Does a pea have a brain? What animal had the first brain? Does brain-size matter and what makes the human brains different from those of other species? Then there are the chemical questions and the electrical questions and how messages are sent around your body from the brain and signals are sent back from the nerve cells to the brain along multi-lane highways full of neurotransmitters which cope with the impulses you have sensed from the outside world. Wallace and Darwin show you how 21st century science works with CATS (No not cats ) and MRIs and all that Brain Imaging that can explore the brain in action. How we sleep, how we perceive things, how we dream, how we (and other animals) remember things, even how we think Brain takes a 21st Century Look at the major concepts that will help the reader understand the complex structure and function of the brain, whether plants have brains and what the brains of small animals like flies and worms look like and if size matters. Brain looks at the structure of neural cells and what a synapse looks like and does as well as examine the chemical nature of how nerves work and how some molecules like dopamine work to influence the way our nervous systems work. It also looks at how the brain works and what parts of the brain might control what functions and how FMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) looks at the brain. This lavishly illustrated book examines how our brain works when we sleep, see things, perceive and remember things.

Destination in Doubt: Russia Since 1989

Product : Destination in Doubt: Russia Since 1989
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is a short history of Russia since the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe. In a matter of months, Russia was apparently demoted from "evil empire" to despondent poor relation of the prosperous West. Yet the country also seemed extraordinarily -- and alarmingly -- open to all manner of political outcomes: from the return of Communism to the creation and consolidation of liberal democracy. Many of the scripts written for Russia in 1991 have had to be drastically revised in subsequent years. This book is a historian's attempt to stand back from the turbulent post-Soviet era and inquire into the nature of the "Second Russian Revolution."

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Parenting with Pets beautifully details the never ending learning opportunities family pets naturally bring into the lives of their children. Parents will appreciate the many examples of challenging life lessons and how our pets can be the most effective teachers with our guidance and interactive dialogue with our children. Parenting with Pets will show you how pets facilitate social interactions, and how children from pet-owning homes have better verbal and nonverbal communication skills than those from non--pet-owning families. Pets can also help teens through awkward adolescence. This book will show you how pets augment the lessons we teach. Although they cannot take a parent's place in raising children, pets can help to remind parents that many of the things we find stressful, such as business meetings, traffic jams, frustrating coworkers, aren't really that important. Animals have a profound effect on human physiology. They slow the heart rate, lower blood pressure, and temper

He was back in Central Asia within weeks of the attacks -- this time as a reporter, slipping into Afghanistan as rockets and tracer bullets lit up the night sky, carrying notebooks, stolen blankets, and a satellite phone. In the decade that followed, Petrou has repeatedly returned to the greater Middle East, where political Islam, liberalism, ethnic and religious nationalism, and Western military intervention shape and batter the lives of those who live there. In the process, Petrou has established himself as one of Canada's premier foreign correspondents. Petrou details a world in the midst of great turmoil and tells the stories of people who have long been held down by dictatorship and extremism and who are finally beginning to shake themselves free.

The "Hitler Myth": Image and Reality in the Third Reich

Product : The "Hitler Myth": Image and Reality in the Third Reich
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Few, if any, twentieth-century political leaders have enjoyed greater popularity among their own people than Hitler did in the decade or so following his rise to power in 1933. The personality of Hitler himself, however, can scarcely explain this immense popularity or his political effectiveness in the 1930s and '40s. His hold over the German people lay rather in the hopes and perceptions of the millions who adored him. Based largely on the reports of government officials, party agencies, and political opponents, Ian Kershaw's groundbreaking study charts the creation, growth, and decline of the "Hitler myth." He demonstrates how the manufactured Fuhrer-cult served as a crucial integrating force within the Third Reich and a vital element in the attainment of Nazi political aims. Masters of the new techniques of propaganda, the Nazis used "image-building" to exploit the beliefs, phobias, and prejudices of the day. Kershaw greatly enhances our understanding of the German people's attitudes and behavior under Nazi rule and the psychology behind their adulation of Hitler.

The Dream of Spaceflight: Essays on the Near Edge of Infinity

Product : The Dream of Spaceflight: Essays on the Near Edge of Infinity
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One of few truly gifted essayists who have turned their talents to science, Wyn Wachhorst here fashions a luminous meditation on the meaning of space exploration from a montage of images and reflections on humanity's dream of spaceflight. In a survey of major figures from Johannes Kepler to Wernher von Braun, he sees in the rise of spaceflight a metaphor of modern history as a recurrent story of transformation and rebirth. Other essays offer new perspectives on the nature of wonder, recall the romantic vision of the decades prior to Sputnik ("nostalgia for a bygone future"), and look at the larger meaning of the moon landing, seeing in spaceflight not only a spiritual quest in the broadest sense of the word, but a cure for the withered capacity for wonder that afflicts the postmodern mind.

Sex, Race, and Merit: Debating Affirmative Action in Education and Employment

Product : Sex, Race, and Merit: Debating Affirmative Action in Education and Employment
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since its inception, affirmative action has been a controversial policy, and on all sides of the issue passions run high. Sometimes commentators have looked with clarity at the deep and complex issues surrounding affirmative action, but too often facts have been in shorter supply than misinformed opinions. "Sex, Race, and Merit: Debating Affirmative Action in Education and Employment" is designed to enhance intelligent discussion of the issues, presenting all sides of the controversy and working to separate fact from fiction. "Sex, Race, and Merit" brings together a rich array of material, including newspaper articles and essays by leading scholars. including William Bowen, Derek Bok, Barbara Bergmann, Christopher Edley, Barbara Reskin, Claude Steele, and Patricia Williams. Also featured are excerpts from primary sources, including the legislative documents that established affirmative action policy; the text of California Proposal 200, which ended such policy in that state; and excerpts from key legal cases, including the Bakke case and other recent cases. "Sex, Race, and Merit" is a useful tool in eliciting thoughtful, informed, and useful debate on the subject of affirmative action. It neither advocates in favor of affirmative action, nor does it speak against it. Rather, by including both factual and polemical materials, the book allows readers to explore the contours of the debate as well as the facts being debated. It is designed for an audience of nonspecialist readers, including students from secondary school through college, but will also be useful to scholars interested in the evolution and current status of this critical policy debate.

Product : Murder and the Masquerade: Book 1 of the Dorothy Phaire Romantic Mystery Series
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Two African-American women in the Washington, D.C., metro area face their middle-age struggles with love, family and murder charges in this empowering romantic thriller. Dr. Renee Hayes seems to have everything-a lavishly decorated French Colonial house, a successful psychology practice and a popular series of self-help books. On the inside, however, she is just as troubled as any of her patients. One of these is Veda Simms, a suicidal paralegal who has estranged herself from her ex-husband and daughter as a result of her dangerous obsession with LaMarr Coleman, a crooked attorney at her law firm. At first, the patient and doctor seem to be the antithesis of each other (with the exception of a shared hairdresser). Veda is petty and self-absorbed, concerned only with what LaMarr thinks of her, while selfless Renee tends to an infant with AIDS in her off-hours. A series of seemingly unrelated crimes befall the two women, and Renee finds herself in the throes of a torrid affair with Deek, a young detective investigating the crimes, as a relief from her tepid marriage. At the end of her patience with LaMarr's shady activities, Veda goes from a weepy mess of nerves to a wrathful ex. When both women are wrongfully charged with LaMarr's gruesome murder, they begin to question their chosen paths. In this rewrite of her 2001 book Almost Out of Love, Phaire devotes a sizable chunk of the story solely to her characters' biographies, giving the reader a detailed psychological portrait of the two women but occasionally hindering plot progression. Mystery and suspense take a back seat as chapter-long childhood flashbacks play out, drawing the reader deeper into the psyches of Veda and Renee. Displays a knack for shaping round characters with rich and troubled pasts-sure to be a treat for armchair psychoanalysts and book clubs alike.-Kirkus Discoveries

Imagining Virginia Woolf: An Experiment in Critical Biography

Product : Imagining Virginia Woolf: An Experiment in Critical Biography
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Where other works of literary criticism are absorbed with the question--How to read a book?--"Imagining Virginia Woolf" asks a slightly different but more intriguing one: how does one read an author? Maria DiBattista answers this by undertaking an experiment in critical biography. The subject of this work is not Virginia Woolf, the person who wrote the novels, criticism, letters, and famous diary, but a different being altogether, someone or something Maria DiBattista identifies as "the figment of the author." This is the Virginia Woolf who lives intermittently in the pages of her writings and in the imagination of her readers. Drawing on Woolf's own extensive remarks on the pleasures and perils of reading, DiBattista argues that reading Woolf, in fact reading any author, involves an encounter with this imaginative figment, whose distinct, stylistic traits combine to produce that beguiling phantom--the literary personality. DiBattista reveals a writer who possessed not a single personality, but a cluster of distinct, yet complementary identities: the Sibyl of Bloomsbury, the Author, the Critic, the World Writer, and the Adventurer, the last of which, DiBattista claims, unites them all. "Imagining Virginia Woolf" provides an original way of reading, one that captures with variety and subtlety the personality that exists only in Woolf's works and in the minds of her readers.

Participating in God

Product : Participating in God
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this exciting work, Samuel Powell offers a new constructive and systematic vision of creation by interpreting it in terms of contemporary science and trinitarian theology. Powell's work unfolds in three stages, building on the multiple ways the doctrine of creation actually functions for Christians. He first analyzes its regulative dimension. Even in all the multiplicity of historical Christianity, he shows, the doctrine commits Christians to a particular set of normative beliefs about the world and God's relation to it. Second, Powell builds on the doctrine's hermeneutical potential. It allows Christians both to interpret the meaning of creation in terms of other prevalent philosophical, religious, or scientific ideas and also to interpret the world, as disclosed by scientific theory, in theological terms. In the heart of his book, Powell correlates creaturely characteristics with their participation in God through the trinitarian persons. Finally, in light of his findings, Powell drives home the often ignored ethical dimension of the doctrine, especially in relation to the environment, our consumerist lifestyle, and eschatology. Powell's bold proposal harvests from two of the most fruitful fields of recent theology -- trinitarian theory and religion-and-science -- and crafts a creative new vision of how we and all creation participate in the life and work of the triune God.

You Don't Always Get What You Pay for: The Economics of Privatization

Product : You Don't Always Get What You Pay for: The Economics of Privatization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Today, nearly all public services -- from schools and hospitals to prisons, fire departments, and sanitation -- are considered fair game for privatization. Proponents argue that private firms responding to competitive market pressures will provide better service at lower cost. While this assertion has caused much controversy, the debate has consisted mainly of impassioned defenses of entrenched positions on all sides. You Don't Always Get What You Pay For changes the contours of this debate. Elliott D. Sclar offers a balanced look at the pitfalls and promises of public sector privatization in the United States. Describing the underlying economic dynamics of how public agencies and private organizations actually work together, he provides a rigorous analysis of the assumptions behind the case for privatization. The competitive-market model may seem appealing, but Sclar warns that it does not address the complex reality of contracting for government services. Using specific examples such as mail service and urban transportation, he shows that, in an ironic twist, privatization does not shrink government -- the broader goal of many of its own champions. He also demonstrates that there is more to consider in providing these services than trying to achieve efficiency; there are issues such as equity and access that cannot be ignored.

Ancient Tragedy and the Origins of Modern Science

Product : Ancient Tragedy and the Origins of Modern Science
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Through a close reading of Sophocles' "Ajax, "Descartes' "Discourse on Method, "and Plato's "Meno, "Davis argues that ancient tragedy and modern science are alternative responses to the human longing for autonomy or striving to be a god. Tragic heroes assume that through politics they can exert more control over the world than the world will allow. To them the whole world is politics, or "polis. "Scientists seek to control by mastering nature, which, in essence, means to transform the whole of the world into a "Polis. "Thus the issues and motivations in modern science were already present in ancient tragedy.

In the opening chapters of John's Gospel, you see a group of men who were struggling with their faith and occasionally stumbling.

Chance of a Lifetime: Nucky Johnson, Skinny D'Amato, and How Atlantic City Became the Naughty Queen of Resorts

Product : Chance of a Lifetime: Nucky Johnson, Skinny D'Amato, and How Atlantic City Became the Naughty Queen of Resorts
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In her glory days -- from Prohibition to the Jet Age -- Atlantic City was the nation's center of entertainment. Celebrities and tourists flocked to "America's Playground" while political corruption, illegal gambling, bootlegging, and prostitution were all sanctioned as part of the experience. Chance of a Lifetime explores the heyday of this resort -- when real-life excesses strain even the wildest imaginations and outrageous characters made it all happen. It is where American Cool was born, the first home of the Rat Pack and a haven where a down-and-out Frank Sinatra was always welcome -- and never forgot it. Beginning with the early attractions of the island, then exploring the power base of boss "Nucky" Johnson and later "Skinny" D'Amato and his famed 500 Club -- a venue that encapsulated everything good, bad, and fun about the town -- we are given a nostalgic tour of the "good-bad old days." This intimate and personal account of the city, the club and the famous and infamous people who passed through is told by insider Grace Anselmo D'Amato, whose husband managed the 500 Club for his brother Skinny, and includes a foreword by noted Atlantic City historian Vicki Gold Levi. In a place where more people came for sin than sun, Chance of a Lifetime details the rise and fall, and rise again, of Atlantic City's glorious glitz and guts.

Description : Where the art of feng shui leaves off, the art of wabi sabi picks up--through balance and harmony, the perfection of imperfection, and a poetic approach to life. Now in paperback, Wabi Sabi Style reveals the Japanese design elements of wabi and sabi, and illustrates how to implement these principles into every aspect of home, garden and life. Wabi Sabi Style reveals the sparseness, the minimalism of a rich palette of organic colors and textures, the manipulation of light and space, and the exquisitely stylized representations of nature that embody the essence of Japanese design. Flowing from spring to summer, autumn, and winter, each chapter is steeped in Japanese lore and techniques for incorporating the wabi sabi philosophy into one's own home. Breathtaking photography brings wabi sabi alive, moving beyond the glossy, gilded, and gaudy to a simple organic elegance that emanates tranquility. James and Sandra Crowley are recognized experts in the field of Japanese antique furnishings, folk art, and tea wares. A lifelong student of Japanese art and culture, James is a graduate of the University of Utah. Sandra is Asian-American and has spent her adult life reclaiming the culture of her ancestors and acquiring a vast knowledge and collection of Asian art.

Bert Darrow's Practical Fly Fishing: How to Cast and Fish Naturally

Product : Bert Darrow's Practical Fly Fishing: How to Cast and Fish Naturally
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Bert Darrow doesn't just teach his students to fish, he teaches them to live the sport. It's an unusual, holistic approach that comes from thirty-five years of fly fishing, and nearly the same amount of time teaching it. This long-awaited book includes the best of Darrow's approaches to fishing. To teach fly fishing, Darrow brings in elements and analogies from every kind of discipline. Exercise, for instance. Few books or instructors stress the strenuous and aerobic nature of fly fishing, but Darrow understands how important being fit is to fishing right. He describes a simple exercise that will help any angler improve his cast. Or music. Darrow frequently uses music to teach casting, timing the back and forward casts to a 4/4 beat. Or sports. Darrow teaches the casting stroke the same way many tennis coaches approach the serve and the backhand. He also discusses the mental challenges of the sport-things such as focus and patience-in terms that would befit a sports psychologist. It's an approach that has surprised many students, who, when they get to the river, are amazed at how much less time they spend untying knots and pulling flies out of trees, and how much more time they spend catching fish.

Along the River That Flows Uphill: Between the Orinoco and the Amazon

Product : Along the River That Flows Uphill: Between the Orinoco and the Amazon
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Along The River that Flows Uphill weaves the story of an Amazon journey with science, math and reason to explore the risks that are inherent in adventure travel. In 2005, Geographical - the official magazine of the Royal Geographical Society in London - commissioned authors Richard Starks and Miriam Murcutt to write an article about a strange river in Venezuela called the Casiquiare. This river - once the source of great controversy until it was explored by Alexander von Humboldt - is like no other, since it joins two, otherwise-separate river systems, the Orinoco and the Amazon, by apparently flowing up and over the watershed that divides them. Rivers are not meant to do that. For Richard Starks - an award-winning journalist, author and traveler - the writing commission offered a chance to test himself against the standards set by his childhood explorer-heroes - men like Burton, Speke, Livingstone and Stanley. For Miriam Murcutt - a writer, editor and former marketing executive - it represented a chance for adventure. The two writers hired a boat and a guide to take them 1,000 miles up the Orinoco and along the Casiquiare to the Rio Negro, which flows into the Amazon. They expected to travel only with their guide, but once on board his boat, they found he'd brought along his extended family, as well as a group of researchers that included a young and overly persistent entomologist. A few days into the journey, the boat took on another passenger - a Yanomami Indian from a primitive tribe that is reputedly among "the most violent people on Earth." Further up river, FARC guerillas tried to hold the authors for ransom when they strayed over the border into Columbia. Along the River that Flows Uphill is more than an account of the authors' journey. It blends their travels with the contentious history and peculiar geography of the Casiquiare. And it examines the society and culture of the Yanomami Indians who live alongside it. The book is also a story of self-discovery. And it assesses risk - not just the risk that's part of all adventure travel, but also, by extension, the risk that's inherent in the adventure of life.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Entering the human race, we walk out into a world, searching for fulfillment. In our pursuit, we struggle with emotional insecurities and faulty relationships. Eventually we find ourselves in a society filled with broken people where many weary travelers are on the same endless quest for peace and well-being. In The Search Stops Here, the author gives details of her personal experiences with depression, anxiety, anger, and suicide. Sharing her journey toward restoration, she explores the root causes of defeat, aiding in figuring out our frustrations and our hurt. She addresses life issues such as control and expectations and provides practical and proven processes for an improved level of health and wholeness. Debbie Calvert insists that the damage of rejection can be repaired, the fight to conquer inferiority ended, and the pain of troubling emotions relieved. Tackling foundational beliefs, the author shows how thought processes affect our behaviors and strongly suggests the need of new "house rules." This book offers convincing evidence of an alternative route - one which is more effective in offering nurture and love, human nature's absolute necessity. Stressing the importance of living one day at a time and better understanding true success, The Search Stops Here challenges us to stop our tiring efforts and end our lifelong search.

Product : Above and Beyond: Inspiring Adventures Into the Blue
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Have you ever wondered about the person sitting next to you a plane? Who are they, why are they traveling, and what is their life like? For JetBlue flight attendant Heather McKeown, by the time the plane has taken off and subsequently landed, she has heard countless stories of these men and women who shoot through the sky with her, and truth be known, she cannot wait for her next flight, for the next series of stories that strike a curious and caring chord in her soul. With the easy rattle of turbulence, many flyers look to their fellow travelers and the flight attendants charged with caring for them, for assurance. Heather has the ability to tune in to any person she meets and she believes most of her peers could develop this innate but often dormant quality. With profound listening skills and total recall, Heather writes down her observations and stories after almost every landing. Now, in ABOVE AND BEYOND, Heather presents a compilation of stories that encompass the microcosm of the traveling public--all the blessings, troubles, moods, foibles and insecurities of those who have been put in her flight path. This inspiring, humorous, and empowering book is evidence of how close a flight attendant can get to someone in the space of one airplane ride. Heather passion is meeting new customers and welcoming them to "her" airplane, and she believes that all of those who work in the service industry can benefit from her worldly experience. The relationship between the buyer and seller can evolve into a sacred trust. Heather McKeown, now a grandmother, says, "People tell me everything. Other times I glean information from observation of behaviors, attitudes and other clues. I'm open and most folks are looking for just such an invitation to share their stories or display dispositions to leave an identifying impression on someone they'll never see as anything but a servant. I love them all unconditionally." Welcome aboard.

The Alpine Winter

Product : The Alpine Winter
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The picturesque town of Alpine in Washington's Cascade Mountains is decked out in holiday finery, but family troubles are brewing at the "Alpine Advocate: "Editor and publisher Emma Lord is fretting over how her brother and her son--both priests--will react when she confesses her passionate affair with Sheriff Milo Dodge; House & Home editor Vida Runkel realizes that her spoiled grandson has gone off the rails; and Emma's star reporter goes AWOL after learning that his son has escaped from prison. And yet another Alpine family is singing the Christmas blues when Postmaster Roy Everson shows up with bones that may or not belong to his mother, who's been missing for the last sixteen years. But the most disturbing holiday dilemma is the body found in the cave on Mount Sawyer. The decomposed corpse is that of a mature male, so it can't be Mama Everson. Is there a connection between this long-ago disappearance and the gruesome bones discovered earlier downstream on the Skykomish River? When Milo returns from his own family ordeal in the Seattle suburbs, he and Emma find time away from the unnerving investigation to reunite. Their all-too-obvious ardor evokes not only Vida's wrath but the attention of a dogged killer who thinks the lovers' bliss is to die for . . . literally. Scandal, intrigue, desire, and untimely death are all pieces to this tantalizing puzzle. If anyone can put it together, it's Emma . . . hopefully before a dangerous enemy tries to stop her--permanently. Mary Daheim's Christmas installment in the Emma Lord mystery series is a deliciously chilling holiday treat.
