Product : Exotic Journeys Exotic Journeys Exotic Journeys Exotic Journeys Exotic Journeys: Exploring the Erotics of U.S. Travel Literature,
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Recent scholarly works indicate a developing interest in travel writing and its place in the rhetoric of imperial expansion and colonial ideology. Exotic Journeys focuses specifically on representations as manifested in sexuality and eroticism in U.S. travel literature. Framing his literary analysis within 19th-century modernist developments such as urbanization, nationalism, imperialism, and consumption, Justin D. Edwards examines U.S. travelers in the South Pacific (Melville, Charles Warren Stoddard, Jack London), the European Grand Tour (Hawthorne, William Wells Brown, Wharton), and in American urban settings like Greenwich Village and Harlem (Djuna Barnes, Carl Van Vechten, Claude McKay). He captures a crucial moment in the formation of an American identity in opposition to the eroticized "foreigners" of his travelers' imaginations.

Salonica Terminus: Travels Into

Product : Salonica Terminus: Travels Into
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A vivid, contemporary travelogue, Salonica Terminus explores a current landscape thronged with figures bent beneath the weight of history. It peers beneath the rotting logs of ideology, prods the decomposing hulks of historical corpses that litter this region of dark mountains and misty valleys. Through its pages lurch extremists, confidence men and would-be national saviors in the vivid, disarticulated manner of shadow puppets. Injustice and blood, it suggests, breed revenge and further injustice in a land where memories are long and knives are sharp. From Bosnian actuality to Macedonian potentiality, Reed's recent travels in this region encounter a landscape inscribed with a shocking testimony: ethno-racialist aspirations remain the only coin in which peoples feel they can express their belonging, their social solidarity; the only credible alternative to the blight of free market globalism. "...from a freelance journalist who takes delight in exploring literature, who insists on tracking down and talking to people...a humanist who knows how to turn sarcasm to good account (and) draws on academic sources in reasonable measure to back up what he says". -- Le Devoir

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl/A True Tale of Slavery

Product : Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl/A True Tale of Slavery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : These two slave narratives expand our knowledge of the differing ways males and females coped with enslavement and later ordeals in flight. This popularly-priced anthology contains the often taught Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs and the recently discovered A True Tale of Slavery by John S. Jacobs, her younger brother, now reprinted for the first time. After Harriet's owner, a physician, repeatedly abused her, she escaped his sexual advances for a time by entering into a relationship with a local attorney. Her owner continued to harass her, and she sought refuge in a crawlspace where she lived in hiding. After her escape to the North, she published her narrative. John S. Jacobs "walked away" as he put it, from his owner, a congressman. He sailed on a whaling ship and educated himself. He then became a paid agent of the Anti-Slavery Society, made a lecturing trip with Frederick Douglass, and finally settled in London, where he remained until it was safe for a fugitive to return to the North. He wrote his story for a London Sunday school journal where it was published in 1861.

Traders: Risks, Decisions, and Management in Financial Markets

Product : Traders: Risks, Decisions, and Management in Financial Markets
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is a book about traders in financial markets: what they do, the kind of people they are, how they perceive the world they inhabit, how they make decisions and take risks. This is also a book about how traders are managed-the best and the worst examples-and about the institutions they inhabit: firms, markets, cultures and theories of how the world works. How these institutions function, how traders are managed, and how traders view the world, all have profound effects on the wider financial environment. This book explores these relationships and their implications theoretically and empirically. The data discussed in this book on a three-year project researching the psychological and social influences on the behavior and performance of traders in investment banks. One hundred and eighteen traders and managers in four leading organizations participated. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews supplemented by questionnaries, measures of personality, risk propensity and a novel computer based measure designed to assess illusion of control and other cognitive biases. The authors' approach to writing this book is explicitly interdisciplinary. hey draw on sociology, psychology and econics in order to illuminate the work of traders and the world they inhabit. The book is a significant contribution to the growing body of research and literature suggesting that if we are to effectively understand financial markets and the actors who inhabit them, the insights of neo-classical financial economics need supplementing with a broader range of social science approaches. The book will be of value to researchers interested in the functioning of financial institutions and markets, to those with an interest in market regulation and to practitioners wishing to benefit from an analytical perspective on the challenges facing traders and their managers.

Product : Time Frames: City Pictures
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Time Frames," Michael Spano's long-awaited first monograph, catalogues the artist's exploration of spatial and temporal dimensions in photography. The book is divided into five chapters: "Panoramas," "Grids," "Portraits," "Multi-Exposures," and "Diptychs"; each employs a distinctive technical process to provide a new way of looking at life in New York City. "Panoramas" (1977-1983) show interacting urbanites moving through elongated frames as the lens of an extremely wide field camera pans during exposure. "Grids" (1980-1990) captures eight moments on a single negative as Spano moves through a sequence of events, pre-determinedly exposing a portion of the grid every four seconds. "Portraits" (1984-1990) focus on individual inhabitants transformed and etched out from their settings through the solarization and blurring forms into an atmospheric world. "Multi-Exposures" (1985-1998) combine solarizations with multiple perspectives. These single-negative layered compositions orchestrate and compress selected intervals of time and space into one image. "Diptychs" (1998-1999) fuse two distinct moments on one negative where scale, focal planes, and perspectives shift and comprise a dual image of urban spaces.

With assignments from Elvis to Ellington, baseball to Tocqueville, Klaus strives to illuminate the American way for students far more attuned to our pop culture than to our national ideals. Klaus's account of his unusual opportunity offers an astonishingly frank glimpse of life in the other Iraq after Saddam.

Sport and Society in Latin America: Diffusion, Dependency, and the Rise of Mass Culture

Product : Sport and Society in Latin America: Diffusion, Dependency, and the Rise of Mass Culture
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "A very exciting collection that explores sport in itself and also as a cultural phenomenon. In unexpected ways, bicycles are linked to modernization in Mexico, baseball takes on socialist overtones in the Yucatan, and the political outlook in Cuba and Nicaragua is explained in terms of their emphasis on sports. This reviewer especially liked Lever's article on Brazil, in which she demonstrates that "sport helps complex modern societies cohere." Spanning a time period from the turn of the century to the present, the seven essays offer dramatic insights into Latin American societies; Robert Levine's conclusion presents comparisons with sports in the US. This new entry into the growing field of sport and social analysis is highly recommended for college and university libraries." Choice

About Time: Inventing the Fourth Dimension

Product : About Time: Inventing the Fourth Dimension
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Few intellectual problems are as intriguing or as difficult as understanding the nature of time. In "About Time," William Friedman provides a new integrated look at research on the psychological processes that underlie the human experience of time. He explains what psychologists have discovered about temporal perception and cognition since the publication of Paul Fraisse's "The Psychology of Time "in 1963 and offers fresh interpretations of their findings. In particular he shows that the experience of time depends on many different psychological processes and that it is essential to divide temporal experience into component categories in order to understand these processes. In chapters on perception and memory, Friedman discusses our impressions about the rate of time's passage and our ability to localize memories in time. He takes up representation and orientation, our ability to build mental representations of the time structures that surround us and to view these patterns from the unique perspective of the present moment. Moreover he shows that we can learn a great deal about the psychological basis of temporal experience by studying the development of this knowledge in children and the way in which views of time vary by culture, personality type, and kind of psychopathology. William J. Friedman is Associate Professor of Psychology at Oberlin College.

Description : This book is on carbohydrates-the essential molecules that give you energy. They are the building blocks of life. This book delivers up-to-date coverage on all aspects of carbohydrate chemistry. The molecules are sometimes sugars, i.e. "sweet," hence the subtitle "The Sweet Molecules of Life." Carbohydrates first gives the "nuts and bolts" of carbohydrate chemistry, enabling the reader to appreciate the subsequent chapters on protecting groups and the reactions of monosaccharides. (The protecting groups do just that-they are put on the molecules as a temporary measure during one or more reactions to stop the wrong bit of the molecule being changed during that reaction.) * Introduces the basic chemistry of carbohydrates * Describes the concepts, protecting groups, and reactions of carbohydrates * Includes all aspects of the synthesis of the glycosidic linkage * Gives an introduction to glycobiology and vaccines * Includes references to carbohydrate literature

In the early eighties, he won several competitions such as the one for the Institute of the Arab World in Paris and the social housing competition the French Government regularly organized at that time, and which led him to build the famous Nemausus blcoks in Nimes, along with Jean-Marc Ibos and Myrto Vitart. After these projects, his international prestige grew and, in the nineties, he was responsible for projects such as Tours Congress Center, the Euralille Shopping Center, and the Cartier Foundation in Paris.

National Parks and Protected Areas: Their Role in Environmental Protection

Product : National Parks and Protected Areas: Their Role in Environmental Protection
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : National Parks and Protected Areas explores the roles that national parks play in preserving and understanding biodiversity and related ecosystem processes. As the gateway to the conservation effort, parks can no longer be viewed as distinct, separate entities. They must be understood and managed in the context of their surrounding ecological and cultural landscapes. National Parks and Protected Areas outlines the reasons why ecosystem management serves as a functional paradigm for parks and protected areas, and presents the supporting historical, political, ecological and legal bases. It illustrates the role that these guiding principles of ecosystem management play in protecting landscapes of various scales--ranging from a complete system of protected areas to an individual park. The use of case examples provides background and understanding of the often contentious role natural processes play in park ecosystems. Recognizing that management of protected areas requires constant survelllance and monitoring to identify changes and trends, National Parks and Protected Areas clearly identifies the real value of maintaining pristine protected areas.

The Chief Factor's Daughter

Product : The Chief Factor's Daughter
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Colonial Victoria in 1858 is an unruly mix of rowdy gold seekers and hustling immigrants caught in the upheaval of the fur trade giving way to the gold rush. Chief Factor John Work, an elite of the Hudson's Bay Company fur trade and husband to a country-born wife, forbids his daughters to go into the formerly quiet Fort Victoria, to protect them from its burgeoning transient population. Margaret, the eldest daughter, chafes at her father's restrictions and worries that, at 23, she is fated to be a spinster. Born of a British father and M?tis mother, Margaret and her sisters belong to the upper class of the fur-trade community, though they become targets of snobbery and racism from the new settlers. But dashing naval officers and Royal Engineers still host parties and balls, and Margaret and her sisters attend, dressed in the fashionable gowns they order from England. As happens the world over, these cultural tensions lead to love and romance.

Reconstructing the Fourth Amendment: A History of Search and Seizure, 1789-1868

Product : Reconstructing the Fourth Amendment: A History of Search and Seizure, 1789-1868
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The modern law of search and seizure permits warrantless searches that ruin the citizenry's trust in law enforcement, harms minorities, and embraces an individualistic notion of the rights that it protects, ignoring essential roles that properly-conceived protections of privacy, mobility, and property play in uniting Americans. Many believe the Fourth Amendment is a poor bulwark against state tyrannies, particularly during the War on Terror. Historical amnesia has obscured the Fourth Amendment's positive aspects, and Andrew E. Taslitz rescues its forgotten history in Reconstructing the Fourth Amendment, which includes two novel arguments. First, that the original Fourth Amendment of 1791--born in political struggle between the English and the colonists--served important political functions, particularly in regulating expressive political violence. Second, that the Amendment's meaning changed when the Fourteenth Amendment was created to give teeth to outlawing slavery, and its focus shifted from primary emphasis on individualistic privacy notions as central to a white democratic polis to enhanced protections for group privacy, individual mobility, and property in a multi-racial republic. With an understanding of the historical roots of the Fourth Amendment, suggests Taslitz, we can upend negative assumptions of modern search and seizure law, and create new institutional approaches that give political voice to citizens and safeguard against unnecessary humiliation and dehumanization at the hands of the police.

Product : An Intermediate Course in Probability
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with a solid background and understanding of the basic results and methods in probability theory before entering into more advanced courses. The first six chapters focus on the following central areas of probability: multivariate random variables, conditioning, transforms, order variables, the multivariate normal distribution, and convergence. A final chapter is devoted to the Poisson process as a means both to introduce stochastic processes and to apply many of the techniques introduced earlier in the text. Students are assumed to have taken a first course in probability, though no knowledge of measure theory is assumed. Throughout, the presentation is thorough and includes many examples that are discussed in detail. Thus, students considering more advanced research in probability will benefit from this wide-ranging survey of the subject that provides them with a foretaste of the subject's many treasures.

Turn the Beat Around: The Secret History of Disco

Product : Turn the Beat Around: The Secret History of Disco
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A long-overdue paean to the predominant musical form of the 70s and a thoughtful exploration of the culture that spawned it Disco may be the most universally derided musical form to come about in the past forty years. Yet, like its pop cultural peers punk and hip hop, it was born of a period of profound social and economic upheaval. In "Turn the Beat Around," critic and journalist Peter Shapiro traces the history of disco music and culture. From the outset, disco was essentially a shotgun marriage between a newly out and proud gay sexuality and the first generation of post-civil rights African Americans, all to the serenade of the recently developed synthesizer. Shapiro maps out these converging influences, as well as disco's cultural antecedents in Europe, looks at the history of DJing, explores the mainstream disco craze at it's apex, and details the long shadow cast by disco's performers and devotees on today's musical landscape. One part cultural study, one part urban history, and one part glitter-pop confection, "Turn the Beat Around" is the most comprehensive study of the Me Generation to date.

Description : Women's struggles and organizing efforts within and outside the antiapartheid liberation movement have meant that women now occupy positions of power in South Africa, but capitalist patriarchy is still intact. From 19 differing vantage points within struggle, this book offers a critique of women's position in South Africa today and gives new meaning to women's knowledge, analysis, vision, and actions for change. Feminist Alternatives suggests that rights and freedoms for women are the litmus test of meaningful change and asserts that any notion of sustainable transformation must insist on radical ruptures with capitalist patriarchy. Any conceptualization of democracy that ignores the economic and social disenfranchisement of the social majority must be rejected.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the 1950s most of Acadian society was poor, uneducated, isolated, and dominated by the Roman Catholic clergy. In the following decade two individuals, Pierre E. Trudeau and Louis J. Robichaud, pointed the way for Acadians like Savoie to make important contributions to Canada's development. Trudeau's objective was Canadian unity and he turned to Acadie to show Quebec that there was a viable French Canadian presence outside their borders. Robichaud, New Brunswick's first elected Acadian premier, had witnessed Acadian poverty first hand and made it his mission to bring New Brunswick into the modern era. Savoie shows how their efforts led to fundamental change for both Canada and New Brunswick and changed his life. Savoie has always been a champion of his home province and region - his memoir reveals why. He is one of "Robichaud's children," the generation that finally emerged from the cloud of Le Grand Derangement to bring equal rights and opportunities to Canada's Acadian citizens.

The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson

Product : The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Paul Portugs is one of the best writers I have ever had the pleasure to work with, and his Rachel Carson story is the best work I've seen in a long, long time. Bill Benenson, producer The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson is an important, passionate story that needed to be told and hopefully never forgotten. It is a fascinating, moving story, masterly written, about one of the great heroines of the 20th century. Cheryl DuBois, producer, novelist Mr. Portugs and I have worked on several projects together - including one about the Sandinistas, another about racism against Latinos. His scripts are always politically and socially important, a celebration of the human spirit struggling against ignorance and injustice, deeply moving, fascinating stories that should be seen by all. Edward James Olmos, actor, producer, director The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson is intelligent, compassionate, and entertaining--something you have a hard time saying about most scripts these days. And a rare chance for a meaningful performance by someone like Meryl Streep or Susan Saradon, not to mention a good kick in the pants to the men( ) who tried to stop Rachel Carson, that little old lady from Maine. J.F. Friedman, novelist, director, screenwriter Mr. Portugs is one of those writers we wish we had more of in Hollywood - smart, dedicated, and a real craftsman - not to mention he can tell a damn good story that entertains, moves you deep down, and stays with you for a long, long time. Jeffrey Selznick, producer Portugs adapted an impossible story (Behind the Veil) for me, and unlike all the others writers who tried it before him, turned it into a beautiful screenplay that should not only make you cry but get you off your backside and do something about the plight of abused women around the world. Paul Cox, screenwriter, director, producer Paul Portugs is one of the most talented writers I have had the pleasure of working with - a gifted, intelligent, master storyteller.

Hume and the Heroic Portrait: Studies in Eighteenth-Century Imagery

Product : Hume and the Heroic Portrait: Studies in Eighteenth-Century Imagery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the second volume of Edgar Wind's selected papers, a companion to The Elegance of Symbols. Of all the scholars associated with the early development of the Warbur Institute Edgar Wind was the first to apply different theoretical principles to the study of English Art, above all in his early study of English portraiture, now a classic art history text. As the seminal essay, it gives title to the present volume, and is here translated into English for the first time. In this essay, which marked a change of direction in Wind's own development, he argues that two opposing styles of portraiture, exemplified in the art of Gainsborough and Reynolds, can be related to the different notions of humanity subscribed to by the philosophers David Hume and James Beattie. Other important studies, also reprinted here, make this volume an excellent resource to Wind's tremendous contributions to art history.

Sacred Sites - Contested Rites/Rights: Pagan Engagements with Archaeological Monuments

Product : Sacred Sites - Contested Rites/Rights: Pagan Engagements with Archaeological Monuments
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Paganism is held to be the fastest growing 'religion' in Britain today. Pagan identities and constructions of sacredness contest assumptions of a 'closed' past and untouchable heritage, within a socio-politics in which prehistoric archaeology the stone circles, burial cairns, and rock art of the British Isles is itself subject to political and economic threats. Pagans see prehistoric monuments in a living, enchanted landscape of deities, ancestors, spirits, 'wights, ' and other non-human agencies to be engaged with for personal and community empowerment. From all areas of Britain and indeed worldwide, people come to sacred sites of prehistory to make pilgrimages, befriend places, give offerings, act as unofficial 'site guardians, ' and campaign for 'site welfare.' Summer solstice access at Stonehenge attracts tens of thousands of celebrants. Threats of quarrying near Derbyshire's Nine Ladies stone circle or Yorkshire's Thornborough Henges lead to protests and campaigns for the preservation of sacred landscapes and conservation of plant and animal species. Pagans can be seen as allies to the interests of heritage management, yet instances of site damage and recent claims for the reburial of non-Christian human remains disrupt the preservation ethos of those who manage and study these sites, and the large-scale celebrations at Stonehenge and Avebury are subject to continual negotiation. In this book, an anthropologist and archaeologist examine interfaces between paganism and archaeology, considering the emergence of 'sacred sites' in pagan and heritage discourse and the implications of pagan involvement for heritage management, archaeology, and anthropology.

DSD refers to medical conditions, usually discovered at birth, in which there is disagreement between a person's genetic sex (i.e., chromosomes) and the appearance of the person's external or internal reproductive structures. After their child is diagnosed with DSD, parents need answers to a host of questions, including - What is DSD, why does it occur, how is it identified, and how is it treated?- Did we do something to cause our child's DSD?- Is my baby a boy or a girl?- Will my child grow up to be normal and healthy?- Does my child need surgery? This concise book answers parents' questions in a reassuring and forthright way, giving affected individuals, their families, and their health care providers a current and evidence-based picture of DSD. It offers clear explanations of how newborns with DSD are evaluated, diagnosed, and treated; describes the different kinds of DSD; and pays close attention to both psychosocial and medical aspects of DSD. This guide also includes information about the importance of support groups and education for affected individuals and their families. In their daily work, the authors treat, support, and educate people with DSD and their families.

The Many Faces of Sacha Baron Cohen: Politics, Parody, and the Battle Over Borat

Product : The Many Faces of Sacha Baron Cohen: Politics, Parody, and the Battle Over Borat
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In his various guises, the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has threatened Uzbekistan with catapults, driven a U.N. Secretary-General to profanity, and ruined New York's Fashion Week. Evincing shades of Jonathan Swift, Monty Python, and Andy Kaufman, Baron Cohen has consistently demonstrated a singular talent for crafting outrageous personae, a ruthless dedication to staying in character, and an uncanny ability to parlay controversy into professional success. Now, in his lively and often humorous study The Many Faces of Sacha Baron Cohen: Politics, Parody, and the Battle over Borat, Robert A. Saunders explores the striking cultural resonance and far-reaching political ramifications of Baron Cohen's portrayals of Borat, Ali G, and Bruno. In Ali G, a wannabe gangsta rapper from the leafy English suburb of Staines, the Cambridge-educated humorist tackled the prickly questions of race, ethnicity, and identity in "Cool Britannia." As Bruno, a campy Austrian fashionista with a Nazi fetish, he tapped into a wellspring of homophobia simmering beneath the sheen of political correctness. Most dramatically, as the roving Kazakhstani reporter Borat, Baron Cohen offended the world's ninth largest nation, provoked the ire of the Anti-Defamation League, triggered dozens of lawsuits, and became the subject of presidential summits. Part biography and part political analysis, Saunders traces Baron Cohen's rise from a small-time comedian-one who might have easily been forgotten in the pre-Internet era-to a cultural lightning rod who set tongues wagging from Vancouver to Vladivostok. Through a probing discussion of the identity politics that mold this jester's unique brand of humor, the author navigates the eclectic socio-political climate that gave rise to the cable television hit Da Ali G Show and the international blockbuster Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The end result is a sublime synthesis of cultural history and contemporary politics that aff

Duplicity Theory of Vision: From Newton to the Present

Product : Duplicity Theory of Vision: From Newton to the Present
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The duplicity theory of vision concerns the comparisons (both differences and similarities) and interaction between the cone and rod systems in the visual pathways, with the assumption that the cone system is active during daylight vision and the rod system functions in low light (night time). Research on this aspect of vision dates back to the 17th century and the work of Newton, and is still ongoing today. This book describes the origin and development of this fundamental theory within vision research - whilst also examining the Young-Helmholtz trichromatic colour theory, and the opponent colour theory of Hering - and presents evidence and ideas in light of modern conceptions of the theory. Written for academic researchers and graduate students, the book brings back knowledge of the tradition of duplicity theory, inspiring questions related to anatomy, comparative biology, molecular biology, photochemistry, physiology, genetics, phylogenetics and psychophysics.

Understanding and Practicing Participatory Evaluation: New Directions for Evaluation

Product : Understanding and Practicing Participatory Evaluation: New Directions for Evaluation
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Participation is viewed generally as a positive activity, certainly in the context of democratic societies. Although still contested in some quarters, the idea of stakeholder participation in evaluation is now widely accepted within the evaluation community. Yet the meanings, even the purposes, of stakeholder participation in evaluation remain diverse, multiple, and thus clouded in many contexts. This volume presents participatory evaluation (PE) as a viable and creative addition to the contemporary repertoire of evaluation approaches. The authors address three basic questions: what is participatory evaluation, in what contexts is it most useful, and how does one actually do it in practice. The two primary themes in the volume are what we identify as the the principal streams in PE: practical participatory evaluation (P-PE), which is pragmatic and has as its central function the fostering of evaluation use; and transformative participatory evaluation (T-PE), which is based in emancipation and social-justice activism and focuses on the empowerment of oppressed groups. In addition to discussing these two streams, historically and philosophically, the volume examines the practical challenges of PE, by presenting it as a process of engagement and by illustrating PE through diverse case examples. Critical reflection on both practice and theory offers valuable insights into and lessons about participation and evaluation. This is the 80th issue of the quarterly journal "New Directions for Evaluation."

Description : "Her spirit waited within the stone, ready to live again." Renowned sculptor Jeremy Copper is determined that his latest work, Girl Blue, will be his masterpiece. He's found the perfect stone for it, a rare block of blue granite from a quarry in Brazil. But this stone is special in more ways than one. The former owner of the great block was a woman named Franscesca, a witch in the 1920s who loved a talented young sculptor. He promised to carve her likeness, but when he betrayed her love she exacted a terrible vengeance and paid for it with her life. Jeremy begins to fear for his sanity when he finds flakes of granite in his bedroom. Late at night, he hears strange noises coming from his locked studio. The sculpture continues to progress, even in his absence, a sinister form emerging beyond his control. But this frightening new version is not at all what Jeremy intended. Franscesca's vengeful spirit lives on, and she's more dangerous than ever.

Description : The adventures of Don Quixote, the famous knight errant, and his lady-love, Dulcinea del Toboso that Miguel de Cervantes portrays in his epic novel, "The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha"; and made more famous by countless adaptations featured in movies and theatrical musical productions of that singular masterpiece reflective of the human condition has captured the imagination of generations throughout the world. "Don Quixote's Impossible Dream: To Everyman His Dulcinea," by David P. Grzan, has elevated the notion of chivalric love, in the fairest terms, which Don Quixote advanced to the honor and esteem of Dulcinea, his true love, the quest of his impossible dream. Love, the most powerful force in the universe, has been the primary inspiration that has propelled all the Don Quixote's, known and unknown that have ever lived, in their attempt to accomplish great deeds in the name of their particular Dulcinea. This epic poem immortalizes the triumphs, tragedies, obstacles, struggles and courage that can accompany and at other times can thwart the greatest of all prizes, love, in the context of the infinite profoundness and complexity of the human dynamic, which is sublimely represented and exemplified by the relationship between Don Quixote and Dulcinea.

No Boundaries: University of Illinois Vignettes

Product : No Boundaries: University of Illinois Vignettes
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Like any great university, the University of Illinois owes its prominence to the excellence of its faculty. In Lillian Hoddeson's No Boundaries, twenty-three scholars provide easily accessible vignettes about University of Illinois faculty who have made major contributions to their fields, to knowledge, and to the world. Here are many of the most inspiring--and often most amusing--people whose work elevated the University of Illinois into a world leader in a variety of areas. Their lives demonstrate again and again that the work of the University takes place as much away from campus as on it: Oscar Lewis's pioneering studies of poverty in Mexico, for example, Ralph Grim's geological work in Africa, and Nathan Newmark's architectural work in Mexico City. Here also are insights into the remarkable careers of classicist William Oldfather, chemist Roger Adams, the amazing double Nobel Prize-winning physicist John Bardeen, and accounts of Katharine Sharp's work that made the University of Illinois Library into a national treasure. Also included are the legendary contributions of the University of Illinois to computer science, biochemistry, history, literary study, and electronic music.
