Living in the Rock N Roll Mystery: Reading Context, Self, and Others as Clues

Product : Living in the Rock N Roll Mystery: Reading Context, Self, and Others as Clues
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Mystery, rather than "problem," provides the con-text that the cultural ethnographer best uses to ap-proach the experience of both the living and the writ-ing of culture. In this work, H. L. Goodall, Jr., continues his discussion of the cultural ethnographer as detective through an investigation of what he calls the "rock n roll mystery." Using Bakhtin's notion of "Carnival," Goodall posi-tions rock n roll as an important aspect of the American cultural experience using its lyrics and rhythm as a force of resistance to the dominant bureaucratic order. He argues that interpretive eth-nography, where sentences use rhythms and emo-tions along with words to construct a work, parallels rock n roll in its creation of multiple voices strug-gling for creative and interpretive presence and space in the text. As there is no privileged text in the social life of rock n roll, there is no privileged voice in the writing of interpretive ethnography. It is, instead, a reading and writing method within the field of communication and the field of cultural studies that challenges the "existing wisdom." Goodall invites the reader to join him in the role of the detective who confronts, enters, and then participates in the mysteries of living. Through the use of his interpretive method, Goodall is able to move under the skin of experience to disclose the relationship among self, other(s), and context, an understanding only achieved by "going beneath the often cosmetic surfaces of cultural traffic to where symbols mingle with the driven stuff of life." Be-cause the "stuff of life" is laid out on the pages of this book, Goodall's text is as compelling as a good novel and in some ways more intimate.

Illusions of Security: Global Surveillance and Democracy in the Post-9/11 World

Product : Illusions of Security: Global Surveillance and Democracy in the Post-9/11 World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In light of the recent terrorist threats at U.K and U.S. airports, this book is a timely and provocative read about what governments should and should not be doing to protect us from further terrorist attacks. It is a crucial look at a little-examined aspect of the U.S. -- led "war on terror" -- the move toward the use of mass, globalized surveillance and a "preemptive" model of security, and its effects on democratic values and human rights around the world. "George Orwell and Michel Foucault together could not have imagined the future that Maureen Webb warns is already here -- a state of global surveillance that challenges all of our most deep-seated expectations of privacy. Highly readable and critically important. Read it to see who's watching you." --David Cole, author of Enemy Aliens: Double Standards and Constitutional Freedoms in the War on Terrorism "Through the various 'frozen scandals' of the War on Terror-from extraordinary rendition to torture to warrant-less wiretapping and surveillance-runs a single theme: the Bush Administration's obsessive concern with 'the preemption of risk.'" -- Mark Danner, author of Torture and Truth: America, Abu Ghraib and the War on Terror "Tracking the myriad ways in which governments-aided by advanced technology and profit-hungry corporations-are monitoring and manipulating us, she reminds us that the only predictable consequence of it all is human suffering, with little or no increase in real security." -- Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin professor and author of The Heart of Whiteness and Citizens of the Empire "This valuable guide makes clear how dramatically civil liberties have been attacked in recent years." -- Christian Parenti, author of The Freedom: Shadows and Hallucinations in Occupied Iraq, The Soft Cage and Lockdown America "In measured, lucid detail, Webb presents a wide-ranging account of the emerging global network of surveillance that is infringing on the personal privacy and civil liberties of people in the United States and worldwide." --Nadine Strossen, Executive Director, ACLU "This is a compelling book and it should be compulsory reading." --Jeremy Waldron, Professor of Philosophy, NYU and author of The Dignity of Legislation and Law and Disagreement

Paul Revere: Artisan, Businessman, and Patriot

Product : Paul Revere: Artisan, Businessman, and Patriot
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since Henry Wadsworth Longfellow endowed Paul Revere's ride to Lexington and Concord with mythic qualities, Revere (1734-1818) has come to represent the quintessence of American patriotism. In the process of placing him among the pantheon of the founding fathers, we have lost sight of the diverse influences that shaped his life and his vital role as an artisan and entrepreneur. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Museum of our National Heritage in Lexington, Massachusetts, Paul Revere presents Revere as his contemporaries would have known him. The authors examine Revere's family background, silver shop and related business activities, place in the history of American silversmiths, pioneering role in the development of America's copper rolling industry, and 40-year affiliation with Freemasonry. As the authors weave these aspects of Revere's experience into the fabric of his reputation, Paul Revere emerges as a multifaceted individual who was able to take advantage of the opportunities one century offered the son of a French immigrant while helping to lead the way into the next.

A Pastor's Manual on Doing Church

Product : A Pastor's Manual on Doing Church
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Pastor's Manual on Doing Church comes out of twenty years of pastoral experience by the general editor Dr. Mal Couch. Churches have problems And this book is meant to biblically help answer tough questions facing congregational leadership. Besides Dr. Couch, all the contributors are involved in local assemblies as elders and pastors. They are in the trenches leading the troops through a hostile world. This book is squarely set on the Bible, but where the Scriptures do not speak, Godly wisdom and experience join to help guide believers through some of the crossroad issues of the Christian life. A Pastor's Resource Commentary on Titus is included, because this book is one of the most important of Paul's pastoral letters. The prayer is that this may also contribute to helping pastors understand the instructions that come from the Word of God, for doing Church?

The Thoughts of Jos Valdez IV

Product : The Thoughts of Jos Valdez IV
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jos Valdez IV is a thrice married, tequila drinking, conflicted Presbyterian with a (minor) criminal record. He is infatuated with Salma Hayek, has had numerous Bigfoot sightings, and is somewhat of a stalker of Ole Miss Basketball coach Andy Kennedy. In other words, he's just like any other guy. The Thoughts of Jos Valdez IV includes various essays on Ole Miss sports and the many misadventures of Jos as he patiently awaits the first SEC football championship of his lifetime. "Of the thousands of readers/posters we have on The Ole Miss Spirit web site, nobody's offerings are anticipated or enjoyed more than those of Jose Valdez. In fact, our staff is jealous. Our subscribers like him more than they like us." Chuck Rounsaville, Publisher of "The Ole Miss Spirit" "Every fan base should have a fanatic like Jose Valdez IV. Jose's ability to somehow relate his hilarious tales of his life - from his exploits with his buddy Paco, his nasty run-ins with tequila and his (lack of) relationship with the wife whose name shall not be spoken - to his addiction to Ole Miss sports is not only incredible but also something we all look forward to reading. To say that Jose's style is unique would be an understatement. To say that it's funny wouldn't be doing it justice." Neal McReady, Senior Writer, RebelSports.net

Baha'i

Product : Baha'i
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Baha'i world headquarters is in Haifa, Israel, a religious metropolis that has been compared to the Vatican and to Mormon headquarters in Salt Lake City. Danish sociologist and non-Baha'i Margit Warburg studied at this thriving religious center and brings a unique insider/outsider view to a growing, global religion. With its origins in Islam, this one-time Iranian religion has gained a foothold in Europe -- surprisingly by way of the United States. Warburg discusses the conflict between academicans and Baha'i leaders as well as Baha'i doctrines and rituals, demographics, and cultural background. She compares Iranian Baha'is with those in the West. As a sociological approach, Warburg's overview is descriptive and comparative. Her intent is to help us understand our Baha'i friends and neighbors and perhaps to better understand -- or begin to formulate -- our own religious beliefs.

Description : In 1609, the first edition of Shakespeare's "Sonnets" was published, featuring the mysterious dedication: "To Mr W.H." Ever since, the identity of Mr W.H. has been the subject of a series of fascinating theories--but none quite so ingenious as that of Oscar Wilde's "The Portrait of Mr W.H. "Cambridge scholar Cyril Graham spent his days performing in Shakespeare's plays, and, being somewhat effeminate in nature, he was cast in the female roles. And then he made a rather startling discovery--the "Mr W.H." to whom Shakespeare dedicated his Sonnets could be none other than Will Hughes, the boy-actor of Shakespeare's plays But when no one shares his conviction, he resolves to find another way to convince them.

Product : Rolling Thunder in a Gentle Land: The Vietnam War Revisited
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the Colonial War with France in the 1940s and 50s, through to the final evacuation of Saigon, each chapter of Rolling Thunder in a Gentle Land focuses on a different aspect of the Vietnam War. The 15 chapters are written by a diverse set of expert authors including participants in the war, journalists and historians, who give startling and, in some cases exclusive, insights into one of the most controversial conflicts of the 20th century. Officers from both the NVA and ARVN take a first-hand look at the strategy and tactics of both sides and give critical assessments of where the war went wrong; Le Ly Hayslip, a Vietnamese civilian trapped between the Viet Cong and Southern authorities, provides a harrowing account of life for the typical South Vietnamese civilian caught up in the war; and acclaimed historians and journalists, such as Bernard Edelman and Arnold Isaacs, take a critical look at the many aspects of the war from the river and air wars to the strategy and doctrine used by the USA forces and the controversial roll of the media in the war. Illustrated with contemporary color photography that evocatively complements the text, this book shows the Vietnam War in a radically new light.

Description : From the Foreward: Fr. Mauriello shares what he has shared with himself and his hearers over the span of his 22 years as a priest. He presents his thoughts so simply that their profundity resonates with the challenge to any willing hearer or reader. And so, let us read on and then revisit the veritable treasure paged out before us. If we do, as I see it, we will be helped spiritually, now laughing, now lifting the eyebrow, but regularly finding what Cardinal Newman calls, "heart speaking to heart."+ Lambert Reilly, O.S.B.Archabbot EmeritusSt. Meinrad, INFrom the Introduction: These pages have been written with humility and appreciation for the many blessings and mercies that I have received. They are threefold: God's mercy to others of which I have witnessed or learned, God's mercy which I have received, and my priestly ministry as an instrument of bringing God's mercy to others. I hope that the reader will learn more about the bountiful mercy of the Lord, realize His mercy in their lives and bring that mercy to others as we help each other persevere on the path that brings us to the kingdom of heaven.About the Author: Rev. Matthew R. Mauriello was born in New Jersey in 1956 and ordained to the Holy Priesthood in the Marian Year 1988. He earned the Licentiate in Sacred Theology in the Theology of Mary from the International Marian Research Institute in Dayton, Ohio, a branch of the Pontifical Marianum University in Rome. In 2007, Fr. Matt was appointed as a member of the Executive International Committee for the World Apostolic Congress on Mercy, representing North America.

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister's murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years. What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the "Sinsar Dubh"--a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds. In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the "Sinsar Dubh" turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves. Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card? From the luxury of the Lord Master's penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac's journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

Theater of Disorder: Patients, Doctors, and the Construction of Illness

Product : Theater of Disorder: Patients, Doctors, and the Construction of Illness
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There are certain phenomena, such as hypnosis, hysteria, multiple personality disorder, recovered memory syndrome, claims of satanic ritual abuse, alien abduction syndrome, and culture-specific disorders that, although common, are difficult to explain completely. The purpose of this volume is to apply a model of social relations to these phenomena in order to provide a different explanation for them. Wenegrat argues that they are socially constructed illness roles or purposive behavior patterns into which patients fall while receiving either unintentional or intentional cues during interactions with caretakers and authority figures. The application of the social-relations model raises some important, yet previously overlooked, questions about these phenomena. It also illustrates some important aspects of human nature and consciousness, places illness behaviors in their larger, cultural context, and shows the way to a new and different view of mental life.

Product : The Macroeconomics of Imperfect Competition and Nonclearing Markets: A Dynamic General Equilibrium Approach
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this book, Jean-Pascal Benassy attempts to integrate into a single unified framework dynamic macroeconomic models reflecting such diverse lines of thought as general equilibrium theory, imperfect competition, Keynesian theory, and rational expectations. He begins with a simple microeconomic synthesis of imperfect competition and nonclearing markets in general equilibrium under rational expectations. He then applies this framework to a large number of dynamic macroeconomic models, covering such topics as persistent unemployment, endogenous growth, and optimal fiscal-monetary policies. The macroeconomic methodology he uses is similar in spirit to that of the popular real business cycles theory, but the scope is much wider. All of the models are solved "by hand," making the underlying economic mechanisms particularly clear.

Mars, a Cosmic Stepping Stone: Uncovering Humanity's Cosmic Context

Product : Mars, a Cosmic Stepping Stone: Uncovering Humanity's Cosmic Context
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The questions of our origin and cosmic abundance of life are among the most compelling facing humanity. We have determined much about the nature and origin of the Universe and our place in it, but with virtually all evidence of our origin long since gone from our world and an unimaginably vast Universe still to explore, defining answers are difficult to obtain. For all of the difficulties facing us however, the planet Mars may act as a a cosmic stepping stonea (TM) in uncovering some of the answers. Although different today, the origin and early history of both Earth and Mars may have been similar enough to consider an origin to life on both. But because Marsa (TM) planetary processes collapsed over three billion years ago a " just as life was beginning to flourish on Earth a " a significant and unique record of activity from that era perhaps relevant to the origin of life still resides there today. In recognition of this, both the US and Europe are currently engaged in one of the most ambitious programs of exploration ever undertaken. Built on our legacy of Mars exploration from the Viking era and before, a far-reaching, phased, program of robotic exploration now and over the coming decades aims at obtaining definitive answers about the origin and nature of the red planet and what it has to say about the origin and cosmic abundance of life. This book examines these issues in one of the most comprehensive treatments ever written about the planet Mars and our legacy of engagement with it, in language suitable for non-expert and expert alike. Opening chapters consider the question of life in the Universe and the origin of life on Earth and what challenges face us in uncovering defining answers. With a realization of its importance in this, the next section examines the legacy of our engagement with Mars. From Keplera (TM)s work on its orbit, Schiaparellia (TM)s efforts to resolve its surface features and NASAa (TM)s Mariner and Viking programs attempting to determine whether life resides upon the surface, Mars has remained elusive, yet always prodding and extending our capabilities in exploration and our perception of our place in the Universe. Subsequent chapters consider our current understanding of the planet and the recently devised comprehensive program for scientific exploration. All recent, current and upcoming missions and the latest findings are discussed in detail, providing our best understanding yet of a vast and ancient landscape indeed characterized by significant activity relevant to our quest and which also points to a planet far from dead today. Late chapters consider NASA and ESA plans for Mars over the next thirty years, increasingly shaped by the scientific successes to date, unprecedented public interest and by issues of planetary protection. And with mounting political interest, our program for Mars may culminate in a human mission to Mars, perhaps sometime around 2040. The greatest discovery, however, r

The priceless, rarely displayed Bannister collection is about to be exhibited--and the show's director, Morgan West, can't ignore her growing uneasiness.

The mysterious master thief is playing a dangerous game, and it's a game that just might get him killed. With Morgan's help, Quinn sets a trap intended to catch someone far more elusive...and more deadly...than a thief. But an unseen threat shadows him in the fog-shrouded San Francisco night, an unknown adversary more cunning than any he has yet encountered. Now, just when the stakes are higher than even Quinn can imagine, no one can be trusted--and everything's at risk.

Network Security Hacks: 100 Industrial-Strenght Tips & Tools

Product : Network Security Hacks: 100 Industrial-Strenght Tips & Tools
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : To the uninitiated, the title may seem like an oxymoron: after all, aren't hacks what network security is supposed to prevent? But if you're network administrator, this book's title not only makes sense; it makes a lot of sense. You know that a busy administrator needs a hatful of devilishly effective security hacks to keep your 12-hour days from becoming all-nighters. "Network Security Hacks" is not a long-winded treatise on security theory. Instead, this information packed little book provides 100 quick, practical, and clever things to do to help make your Linux, UNIX, or Windows networks more secure today. This compendium of security hacks doesn't just cover securing TCP/IP-based services, but also provides intelligent host-based security techniques. Loaded with concise but powerful examples of applied encryption, intrusion detection, logging, trending, and incident response, "Network Security Hacks" will demonstrate effective methods for defending your servers and networks from a variety of devious and subtle attacks. "Network Security Hacks" show how to detect the presence (and track every keystroke) of network intruders, methods for protecting your network and data using strong encryption, and even techniques for laying traps for would-be system crackers. Important security tools are presented, as well as clever methods for using them to reveal real, timely, useful information about what is happening on your network. O'Reilly's Hacks Series reclaims the term "hacking" for the good guys--innovators who use their ingenuity to solve interesting problems, explore and experiment, unearth shortcuts, and create useful tools. "Network Security Hacks" lives up to reputationthe Hacks series has earned by providing the "roll-up-your sleeves and get-it-done" hacks that most network security tomes don't offer. Every hack can be read in just a few minutes but will save hours of searching for the right answer. Using just one of these amazing hacks will make this slim book's price seem like a remarkable deal. The other 99 make "Network Security Hacks" absolutely invaluable.

While They're at War: The True Story of American Families on the Homefront

Product : While They're at War: The True Story of American Families on the Homefront
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Kristin Henderson is a journalist married to a military chaplain who has served in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, and Iraq. In While They're at War, she draws upon the trust she's earned from military families and her unique access to military staff to give us a "powerful, revealing, and sometimes painful . . . look behind the scenes" (Booklist) at the modern military's untold story. We first meet Marissa Bootes and Beth Pratt, new Army wives undergoing intense indoctrination on Fort Bragg, North Carolina, while their husbands are fighting in Iraq. Their stories unfold to reveal often hidden aspects of life on the homefront. Through gripping storytelling, we see families battling the overwhelming effects of isolation and anticipatory grief, the strongly enforced codes concerning infidelity, their feelings of alienation both from military staff and from nonmilitary citizens, and the harrowing impact of e-mail/cellphone/CNN culture. Moving scenes bring to life the special struggles of children and those who teach and care for them, as well as the toll that combat exposure takes on families, especially if it erupts into homecoming violence. Finally, Henderson reveals the life-changing solidarity experienced in an informal support group like Fort Bragg's Hooah Wives. While They're at War is an indelible portrait, too, of virtually invisible figures such as homefront fathers raising teenagers alone. We meet the chaplains, social workers, and psychiatrists dedicated to helping military families cope. And, through Henderson's brilliant reporting from Walter Reed Army Medical Center's Ward 57, we are given a searing view of the wounded and their families confronting changed lives. "In a country of nearly three hundred million people," Henderson writes, "only two and half million serve in the active duty armed forces. . . Yet in our American democracy, the warriors themselves don't get to decide when sacrifices] are to be made. Civilians make that decision. It's up to our civilian Congress to declare war. . . and it's up to the civilians who elect those leaders to pay attention, to make sure that the cause of the hour is worth the sacrifices being made on their behalf." While They're at War is moving and necessary testimony for all Americans, from the military families who make possible America's way of war and way of life. Kristin Henderson has written frequently on military issues; this book had its origins in two cover stories for the Washington Post Magazine. She is also the author of Driving by Moonlight, an account of her experience during her husband's deployment to Afghanistan. A practicing Quaker, she is married to a Navy chaplain serving with the Marines and is active in the Marine Corps's Key Volunteer family readiness program.

Henry Adams: The Middle Years

Product : Henry Adams: The Middle Years
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Education had ended in 1871, life was complete in 1890." With this paradoxical statement from "The Education of Henry Adams," Adams apparently dismissed from the record twenty of the most interesting and active years of his career. Those two decades embraced the first great productive season of his literary genius and the most significant years of his emotional life. Opening on the highest note of expectation and closing with his desperate flight to the South Seas in 1890, a divided and lonely figure, that season of fulfillment and inner growth is the subject of this book. The relationship between Adams' life and writings grew steadily richer as his literary artistry matured, and with that process as his main concern, Mr. Samuels has written a book equally rewarding as a biography and as a critical study. Perhaps the greatest achievement biographically is a definitive and absorbing account of the true relationship between Henry Adams and his wife and an introduction to the grand passion for Elizabeth Cameron which was to affect the rest of his life. The whole intense inner drama of his feelings is really opened up for the first time, as often as possible in his own words, to the tragedy of his wife's suicide, the embittered years of work concluding the great History, and, finally, the escape to the South Seas in an effort to overcome the intolerable intensity of his love for Mrs. Cameron. Through detailed analyses of Adams' writings, Mr. Samuels shows how all this drama had its counterpoint in his literary activities and eventually became transformed into works of literary art. Equally interesting is the way in which the ideas for his biographical and historical writing emerged from the wide sources of his reading, were tested in the remarkable give and take of his circle, and finally adapted to the themes of his writing. This is the most exhaustive biographical and critical study of Adams' middle years ever made, and probably answers, so far as it is humanly possible, every unanswered question about Adams' life and the writing of his books. From the wealth of family papers deposited with the Massachusetts Historical Society and numerous other sources, Mr. Samuels has unveiled an increasingly complex personality - a brilliant mind in the grip of many prejudices and contradictions, yet one so terrifyingly honest that it more than ever defies explanation in any ordinary terms. The mass of fresh materials used includes letters from correspondents around the world and admits us to the other side of the enormous dialogue which Adams carried on with the members of his circle. Certain finds have revealed some invaluable sidelights including a striking fragment of Adams' diary for 1888-1889; a sheaf of his sonnets to Elizabeth Cameron, and the unpublished remainder of his letters to his wife. Much untouched material has also come to light in newspapers, magazines, public archives, court records, memoirs, and biogr

Designs on Space: Blueprints for 21st Century Space Exploration

Product : Designs on Space: Blueprints for 21st Century Space Exploration
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With the turn of the century upon us, it's fair to ask, "Where are we going?" The answer, in a word, is up -- up from the Earth's gravity well and out into that playground, work site, and frontier otherwise known as outer space. "Designs on Space" is the introduction to the soon-to-be-implemented, cutting-edge machinery that will get us there: a new generation of space probes and rockets that will hurl us into the next Space Age, that of the twenty-first century. In this graphically rich handbook of near-term space exploration, Richard Wagner, former editor of "Ad Astra" and coauthor of "The Case for Mars," and designer Howard Cook serve up a ragout of intriguing space missions that illustrate "the art of discovery and the craft of exploration" that lie at the heart of humanity's drive into space. Their sketches of our next steps into the high frontier range from the on-orbit operations of the International Space Station to scientific exploration at the farthest reaches of our solar system. They describe and detail the contraptions, gizmos, gadgets, and contrivances that will serve as our homes in near space and our senses in the distant reaches of space. Along the way, they offer previews of a new generation of launch vehicles whose aim is to open space to paying passengers; of spacecraft bound for comets, asteroids, Mars, and beyond that will continue our wanderings through our solar neighborhood; and of the instruments that will carry on our ongoing, ever-intriguing search for life beyond Earth. Clearly presenting each mission's rationale and the clever engineering that goes into solving the problems mission designers face, "Designs on Space" provides a remarkable andmesmerizing sneak preview of space voyages in the twenty-first century.

The Lost Gospel of Judas: Separating Fact from Fiction

Product : The Lost Gospel of Judas: Separating Fact from Fiction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With the discovery of the "Gospel of Judas" came an outpouring of hyperbolic language, both negative and positive. Alongside the overwhelming opinions of historians and scholars was the quiet bewilderment of people who simply weren't sure what to think -- confusion that wasn't helped by vast media attention. In "The Lost Gospel of Judas," Stanley Porter and Gordon Heath attempt to set the record straight. They begin with a look at the initial responses to the announcement of the gospel's existence, then provide a brief history of Judas himself as seen in the New Testament and in church history, and of Gnostic philosophy. Further sections consider other recent textual finds and examine the discovery, content, and authenticity of the gospel. They also delve into the relationship this new gospel has with the New Testament canon and contemplate the "Lucky Winner" theory of canonical history. "The Lost Gospel of Judas" sifts through all the evidence, presenting the results with more than enough scholarship to be respected and enough clarity to be easily understood.

Description : Mark thinks he has found The One in college. When Raquel abruptly takes off for Los Angeles to become a rock star, Mark tries to be happy for her-until ROCK-L's first single sweeps the airwaves-a song about Mark's stamina entitled "Two Minute Man." And Mark's life is never the same again. Philippa doesn't really think twice about cheating on her punk rocker boyfriend, Trevor. After all, she's going to break up with him anyway. He mooches off her, treats her badly, and writes stupid songs about her breasts. Then Trevor's band makes a splash with its one and only song sensation, "Philippa Cheats." And suddenly Philippa is the most infamous ex-girlfriend in all of London. Thus Philippa and Mark find themselves adrift, both single and living in Boston, still reeling from the impact that three minutes of music had on their lives. When these two minor-key souls meet and form a major chord, they will have to overcome the sneaking suspicion that each will betray the other . . . possibly with a song. "Brendan Halpin adds weight to his funny moments and lightness to his sad ones . . . reminding] us that comedy and tragedy aren't opposites at all." -Carolyn Parkhurst, author of "The Dogs of Babel," on "Donorboy" "The author's greatest gift: his pitch-perfect ear for dialogue." -"People," on "Long Way Back"

'The Conscience of the World': The Influence of Non-Governmental Organisations in the Un System

Product : 'The Conscience of the World': The Influence of Non-Governmental Organisations in the Un System
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Private groups, such as Amnesty International and Save the Children Fund, have had a formal consultative status with the United Nations since its founding. Such groups--known as nongovernmental organizations, or NGOs--have come to exert considerable influence on the UN's agenda setting, decisionmaking, and policy implementation. This book examines the role of the NGOs in world politics and the accomplishments of selected groups dealing with the environment, women's rights, children's problems, human rights, and refugee and famine crises. Although these organizations and the UN generally act as partners and collaborators, there are also some tensions, as the NGOs do not have voting status and must remain independent and innovative. In the area of human rights, in particular, the NGOs have applied slow but steady pressure to force the UN to institute real sanctions against individual governments, thus earning the title " conscience of the world." Contributors are Seamus Cleary, formerly at the Catholic Fund for Overseas Development; Jane Connors, senior lecturer in law at London University and specialist in women's rights; Helena Cook, former legal officer of Amnesty International; Richard Hoggart, former assistant director-general of UNESCO; Michael Longford, UK representative to several international groups; Sally Morphet, UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Angela Penrose, Save the Children Fund; John Sankey, former UK representative to the UN in Geneva; John Seaman, Save the Children Fund; Bill Seary, formerly at the National Council for Voluntary Organizations; Henry Steel, leader of the UK delegation to the UN Human Rights Commission; and Douglas Williams, former deputysecretary of the UK Ministry of Overseas Development.

A Sure Path

Product : A Sure Path
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It's almost a cliche to talk of life as a journey and of Christians as pilgrims. Though we're tempted to say, "So what?" or "Who cares?" "A Sure Path" suggests we think again about the question, "How will you walk this uncharted path of faith?" In her natural, flowing style, Susan Scott Sutton gives practical guidance for pursuing the one-of-a-kind path God has put before us--finding our unique goals, lighting our special paths, and discovering the God who knows each step before we take it. Each chapter includes notes for the journey--quotes from well-known Christians, a "for reflection" section with Scripture verses, and journaling suggestions.

The Increase in Leisure Inequality, 1965-2005

Product : The Increase in Leisure Inequality, 1965-2005
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Recent research documents increasing income inequality in the United States--in particular, a widening gap between well-educated and less-educated American workers. But income is not the sole measure of prosperity. The amount of time Americans spend in leisure is also crucial to our understanding of American well-being, changes in well-being over time, and differences in well-being among citizens. This meticulously-researched monograph examines trends in leisure inequality to present a more complete picture of prosperity in America. Using data spanning forty years and tens of thousands of survey respondents, Mark Aguiar and Erik Hurst seek to answer several key questions about leisure inequality: How much has the leisure time of the average American increased or decreased over the last several decades? What increases or decreases in leisure time are seen across groups with different levels of education, and to what extent do educational differences in employment status account for these changes? That is, if workers with relatively little education are less likely to be employed today than twenty years ago, does that explain an increase in their leisure relative to more-educated workers? Aguiar and Hurst find that the leisure time of the average American has risen by about four hours per week since the mid-1960s. Moreover, the leisure gap between the less educated and more educated has widened, as leisure time has increased by eight hours for Americans without a high school diploma and decreased by six hours for college-educated Americans. What accounts for this puzzling divergence? Understanding the forces that drive increasing leisure inequality could have important implications for American employment policy.

Eyes on an Era: Four Decades of Photojournalism by Irving Haberman

Product : Eyes on an Era: Four Decades of Photojournalism by Irving Haberman
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Eyes on an Era" takes an insightful and nostalgic look at America through the lens of premier photojournalist Irving Habermann during the decades that shaped the modern era. From World War II to Vietnam, from Roosevelt to Nixon, Haberman's documentation of important figures and events is matched only by his depiction of ordinary people - their struggles, their aspirations, their triumphs. Organized by decade, "Eyes on an Era" is narrated by newsman Walter Cronkite, Habermann's longtime colleague and friend, who brings a unique perspective to this photographic overview of American life. Curator Miles Barth's introduction reconstructs Haberman's importance to photojournalism, from his days as a newspaper and magazine contributor to his activities as chronicler of the emerging television age in his role as photographer at CBS.
