Debbie tackles tough questions such as "Why won't he go to counseling?" "Can I change him?" and "What do I do when I don't feel in love anymore?" with a warm, compassionate approach sure to encourage and inspire every struggling wife.

No Compelling Reason

Product : No Compelling Reason
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : After centuries of professional research all major studies agree: there is 'no compelling reason' to persecute the individual for using this 'unexciting compound of negligible immediate toxicity...' Why, then, do politicians and law enforcement continue to harass those exonerated by the scientific, medical and psychological communities? In this engrossing insider's story, William Boudreau provides something new in the ageless controversy surrounding the most widely-used tranquilizer in the history of the cosmos. He neatly summarizes the major scientific view, the conclusions of numerous publicly-financed studies, and the experiences of smokers themselves, bringing to life an actual marijuana experiment designed to answer the leading questions regarding this 10,000-year-old medicine.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Anglophone Imogene Jackson grew up in an English suburb on the uneasy edge of a francophone world. At the age of nineteen she quit college to marry a shoemaker from the close-knit French village of Saint-Ange-du-Lac. For ten years she has lived with her husband, Thomas, above his family's historic shoe shop, immersed in village life. When Thomas dies in a car accident, she is shattered and her hard-won mastery of the French language deserts her. Isolated and grief-stricken, she retreats to her childhood home. There she discovers that a petty drug dealer she knows from the village has rented a ramshackle farmhouse, nicknamed the "Apple House," at the corner of her parents' street and befriended her easily influenced brother Petey. Her childhood obsession with the old house resurfaces and she finds herself confronting events from both her recent and more distant past as her two worlds collide.Set in 1970s Quebec and written with a gentle humour, "The Apple House" is an intimate portrait of life during a time of great change.

Heaven or Bust: Journey to Glory: A Treasury of Devotional Reflections

Product : Heaven or Bust: Journey to Glory: A Treasury of Devotional Reflections
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Reading the Bible is simple enough, but how do we personalize scripture so that its power is realized in our daily living? Heaven or Bust: Journey to Glory is an inspired book of reflective devotionals written to help Christian believers do just that. One hundred selected scriptures from both the Old and New Testaments begin each devotional. Written for either personal or group reflection, this spiritual reading resource will inspire, encourage, and often challenge the disciple as he journeys home to the Lord. Each devotion ends with a "Question for Reflection." It is here that the reader stops to confirm that he is still on course toward God's promise of eternity for the faithful. Like the many in our past who have set out for places that promised something better than what they had and who were determined to get there or else, we Christians embrace our journey in like fashion. Glory bound we are. Nothing will deter us. These devotionals speak to our resolve.

Of War and Men: World War II in the Lives of Fathers and Their Families

Product : Of War and Men: World War II in the Lives of Fathers and Their Families
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Fathers in the fifties tend to be portrayed as wise and genial pipe-smokers or distant, emotionless patriarchs. This common but limited stereotype obscures the remarkable diversity of their experiences and those of their children. To uncover the real story of fatherhood during this transformative era, Ralph LaRossa takes the long view--from the attack on Pearl Harbor up to the election of John F. Kennedy--revealing the myriad ways that World War II and its aftermath shaped men. Offering compelling accounts of people both ordinary and extraordinary, "Of War and Men" digs deep into the terrain of fatherhood. LaRossa explores the nature and aftereffects of combat, the culture of fear during the Cold War, the ways that fear altered the lives of racial and sexual minorities, and how the civil rights movement affected families both black and white. Overturning some calcified myths, LaRossa also analyzes the impact of suburbanization on fathers and their kids, discovering that living in the suburbs often strengthened their bond. And finally, looking beyond the idealized dad enshrined in TV sitcoms, "Of War and Men" explores the brutal side of family life in the postwar years. LaRossa's richly researched book dismantles stereotypes while offering up a fascinating and incisive chronicle of fatherhood in all its complexity.

Critical Masses: Opposition to Nuclear Power in California, 1958-1978

Product : Critical Masses: Opposition to Nuclear Power in California, 1958-1978
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The nuclear industry was selling the "peaceful atom", but people in California weren't buying. Using vivid detail and first hand testimony, Critical Masses tells how the citizens of California -- from the tiny town of Wasco in the Central Valley to the vast suburbs of Los Angeles -- challenged the threat of nuclear power, transformed the antinuclear movement, and helped changed the face of U.S. politics. Popular misconceptions of the antinuclear movement attribute its success to economic and institutional powers. But Thomas Raymond Wellock, drawing upon interviews, activist papers, and state and federal documents, shows that it was local grassroots activism that actually brought about great change, bringing to bear a powerful array of new social values. Post-World War II affluence and education created public demands for a scenic, safe, clean environment and greater personal freedom. Wellock reveals how these values energized the antinuclear movement, revised the terms of scientific and public debate, and brought environmental and democratic ideals to state regulation. Appealing both to progressive environmentalists and to populists who responded to the movement's anti-federal rhetoric, the antinuclear movement spread as the authority of public officials declined.

Product : Unfinished Business... with God: Finding Hope When All You See Is Pain
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "If God exists, where is he in all of this pain? This is one of the most pressing questions in life. If you wish a biblical perspective on this question, I recommend Dan's book." Walt Henrichsen, author and mentor to men "This book will inspire, encourage and challenge you on your journey." David H. Wills, President National Christian Foundation "Dan uses his personal journey and engaging stories to sort through life's most challenging moments. In the process, he exposes our conflict with God and our opportunity for healing." Ron Dun, co-CEO of Alliance Flooring This story has a Center and it's not me. I'm a fringe player in a larger drama that changed the lives of a handful of people forever. Stories like this happen every day; so in a sense, this story is not unique - but it is personal. Very personal. Tragedy is always personal to someone. That's why I wrote this book. I've done my best here to give you a window into one man's thoughts toward God during a season when God didn't make sense. It is my prayer for you that these pages will serve you well in your own journey, and that God would somehow reach through the words to draw you to Himself. You may not find in this book the answers to your questions, but you will find permission to process your pain out loud and encouragement to finish your business with God. Daniel C. Diaddigo

Arabs and Young Turks: Ottomanism, Arabism, and Islamism in the Ottoman Empire, 1908-1918

Product : Arabs and Young Turks: Ottomanism, Arabism, and Islamism in the Ottoman Empire, 1908-1918
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Arabs and Young Turks" provides a detailed study of Arab politics in the late Ottoman Empire as viewed from the imperial capital in Istanbul. In an analytical narrative of the Young Turk period (1908-1918) historian Hasan Kayali discusses Arab concerns on the one hand and the policies of the Ottoman government toward the Arabs on the other. Kayali's novel use of documents from the Ottoman archives, as well as Arabic sources and Western and Central European documents, enables him to reassess conventional wisdom on this complex subject and to present an original appraisal of proto-nationalist ideologies as the longest-living Middle Eastern dynasty headed for collapse. He demonstrates the persistence and resilience of the supranational ideology of Islamism which overshadowed Arab and Turkish ethnic nationalism in this crucial transition period. Kayali's study reaches back to the nineteenth century and highlights both continuity and change in Arab-Turkish relations from the reign of Abdulhamid II to the constitutional period ushered in by the revolution of 1908. "Arabs and Young Turks" is essential for an understanding of contemporary issues such as Islamist politics and the continuing crises of nationalism in the Middle East.

Florida Legal Research: Sources, Process, and Analysis

Product : Florida Legal Research: Sources, Process, and Analysis
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book bridges the gap between typical legal research texts and the needs of beginning legal researchers for concise explanations of the sources they will use early in their careers. A unique feature of this book is its emphasis on the sources a Florida attorney would use to do state and federal research. Many research texts, in contrast, emphasize federal materials and include illustrations taken from a variety of federal and state jurisdictions. The book is not, however, a bibliography of Florida sources. Instead, it combines an overview of essential primary and secondary sources with an introduction to research methods that will enable a novice researcher to move beyond the sources described in the text. Moreover, its emphasis on developing a research process and analyzing the results of legal research makes it appropriate even tot those who might not be practicing or working in Florida.

The Annual of Psychoanalysis, V. 29: Sigmund Freud and His Impact on the Modern World

Product : The Annual of Psychoanalysis, V. 29: Sigmund Freud and His Impact on the Modern World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Sigmund Freud and His Impact on the Modern World, volume 29 of The Annual of Psychoanalysis, is a comprehensive reassessment of the influence of Sigmund Freud. Intended as an unofficial companion volume to the Library of Congress's exhibit, Sigmund Freud: Conflict and Culture, it ponders Freud's influence in the context of contemporary scientific, psychotherapeutic, and academic landscapes. Beginning with James Anderson's biographical remarks, which are geared specifically to the objects on display in the Library of Congress exhibit, and Roy Grinker Jr.'s more personal view of Freud, the volume branches out in various directions in an effort to comprehend the multidimensional and multidisciplinary richness of Freud's contribution. In section II, we find authoritative summaries of Freud's scientific contributions, of his continuing impact as a thinker, of his notion of symbolization in the context of recent neuroscientific findings, and of his status as a cultural subversive. In section III, contributors hone in on more specific aspects of Freud's legacy, such as an experimental method to review how Freud's idea of childhood sexuality has fared and a look at the women who became analysts in the United States. In the concluding section of the volume, contributors turn to Freud's influence in various humanistic disciplines: literature, drama, religious studies, the human sciences, the visual arts, and cinema. With this scholarly yet highly accessible compilation, the Chicago Institute provides another service to its own community and to the wider reading public. Sure to enhance the experience of all those attending Sigmund Freud: Conflict and Culture, Sigmund Freud and His Impact on the Modern World will appeal to anyone desirous of an up-to-date overview of the man whose work shaped the psychological sensibility of the century just past and promises to reverberate throughout the century just born.

The Age of Innocence - The Original Classic Edition

Product : The Age of Innocence - The Original Classic Edition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It was a glittering, sumptuous time when hypocrisy was expected, discreet infidelity tolerated, and unconventionality ostracized. That is the Gilded Age, and nobody knew its hypocrises better than Edith Wharton.... and nobody portrayed them as well. The Age of Innocence is a trip back in time to the stuffy upper crust of old New York, taking us through one respectable mans hopeless love affair with a beautiful woman -- and the life he isnt brave enough to have. Newland Archer, of a wealthy old New York family, has become engaged to pretty, naive May Welland. But as he tries to get their wedding date moved up, he becomes acquainted with Mays exotic cousin, Countess Ellen Olenska, who has returned home after dumping her cheating husband. At first, the two are just friends, but Newland becomes more and more entranced by the Countess easy, free-spirited European charm. After Newland marries May, the attraction to the mysterious Countess and her free, unconventional life becomes even stronger. He starts to rebel in little ways, but hes still mired in a 100% conventional marriage, job and life. Will he become an outcast and go away with the beautiful countess, or will he stick with May and the safe, dull life that he has condemned in others? Theres nothing too scandalous about Age of Innocence in a time when starlets acquire and discard boyfriends and husbands like old pantyhose -- it probably wasnt in the 1920s when it was first published. But then, this isnt a book about sexiness and steam -- its part bittersweet romance, part social satire, and a look at what happens when human beings lose all spontaneity and passion. Part of this is due to Whartons portrayal of New York in the 1870s -- opulent, cultured, pleasant, yet so tied up in tradition that few people in it are able to really open up and live. Its a haze of ballrooms, gardens, engagements, and careful social rituals that absolutely MUST be followed, even if they have no meaning. Its a place where the real thing was never said or done or even thought. And Wharton writes distant, slightly mocking prose that outlines this sheltered little society. Her writing opens as slowly and beautifully as a rosebud, letting subtle subplots and powerful, hidden emotions drive the story. So dont be discouraged by the endless conversations about flowers, ballrooms, gloves and old family scandals that dont really matter anymore. In the middle of all this, Newland is a rather dull, intelligent young man who thinks hes unconventional. But he becomes more interesting as he struggles between his conscience and his longing for the Countess. And as Age of Innocence winds on, you gradually see that he doesnt truly love the Countess, but what she represents -- freedom from society and convention. The other two angles of this love triangle are May and Ellen. May is (suitably) pallid and rather dull, though she shows some different sides in the last few chapters. And Ellen is a magnificent

As the rich, young offspring of the city's most fashionable families ll their days with masquerade balls and clandestine court-ships, Arabella Fermor and Robert, Lord Petre, lead the pursuit of pleasure.

Once there, privy to every nuance and drama, he is a ruthless observer. He longs for the success that will cement his place in society; all he needs is one poem grand enough to make his reputation. As the forbidden passion between Arabella and Lord Petre deepens, an intrigue of a darker nature threatens to overtake them. Fortunes change and reputations -- even lives -- are imperiled. In the aftermath, Pope discovers the idea for a daring poem that will catapult him to fame and fortune.

Nonlinear Waves in Elastic Crystals

Product : Nonlinear Waves in Elastic Crystals
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The mathematical modelling of changing structures in materials is of increasing importance to industry where applications of the theory are found in subjects as diverse as aerospace and medicine. This book deals with aspects of the nonlinear dynamics of deformable ordered solids (known as elastic crystals) where the nonlinear effects combine or compete with each other. Physical and mathematical models are discused and computational aspects are also included. Different models are considered - on discrete as well as continuum scales - applying heat, electricity, or magnetism to the crystal structure and these are analysed using the equations of rational mechanics. Students are introduced to the important equations of nonlinear science that describe shock waves, solitons and chaos and also the non-exactly integrable systems or partial differential equations. A large number of problems and examples are included, many taken from recent research and involving both one-dimensional and two-dimensional problems as well as some coupled degress of freedom.

Dowsing for Love

Product : Dowsing for Love
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What exactly is dowsing? What can it do for an increasingly thirsty world? "Dowsing for Love" throws light on these questions while telling the story of a dowser wannabe, a New-Age Walter Mitty trying to become a better person by bearing exotic California waters to his Midwestern roots. Cork Rockner, businessman by default, can't make his relationship with Carlotta work but resolves to apply what he's still learning in love and life to his next romance when he gets the chance. Brook shows him how we can all become dowsers: dowsers for love. Dowser Walter Barry's not looking for love but the source of contamination in a city's drinking water, after Cork persuades the conservative citizens in his hometown to risk careers and reputations when more conventional methods of exploration have failed. Fighting inertia, skepticism and self-doubt, Cork manages to convince his fellow "dowsers" that in a time of malaise, when the water of life is as likely to poison as it is to sustain us, we need to seek open-minded, open-hearted solutions to our common problems. Walter Barry is based on real-life California dowser Wayne Cook, who not only made a good living locating water all over the West but also taught healing -- using the same rods he'd invented for dowsing -- at the world-famous Esalen Institute in Big Sur. He collaborated with William Tiller, Professor Emeritus of materials science and engineering at Stanford University, on an unprecedented university-affiliated scientific paper investigating Wayne's theories and techniques.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Message" is a Quran translation that undertakes a unique approach from previous English translations. Two critical differences from previous English translations that will be appreciated by students of the Scripture are: There are no footnotes or addition of words between brackets to interfere with the Quranic text or message. The translation is based on a “ God Alone” approach. In other words, no sources (besides an Arabic word dictionary and common sense) are used to determine the meaning of the text or the translation. The purpose of this simplified translation is to assist those seeking to understand the best world order and constitution as designed by our Creator for mankind. "The Message" is the culmination of years of group study and research into the Quranic text with the goal of bringing objectivity and honesty to the English language reader.

The Explorer

Product : The Explorer
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The sea was very calm. There was no ship in sight, and the seagulls were motionless upon its even greyness. The sky was dark with lowering clouds, but there was no wind. The line of the horizon was clear and delicate. The shingly beach, no less deserted, was thick with tangled seaweed, and the innumerable shells crumbed under the feet that trod them. The breakwaters, which sought to prevent the unceasing encroachment of the waves, were rotten with age and green with the sea-slime. It was a desolate scene, but there was a restfulness in its melancholy; and the great silence, the suave monotony of color, might have given peace to a heart that was troubled. They could not assuage the torment of the woman who stood alone upon that spot. She did not stir; and, though her gaze was steadfast, she saw nothing. Nature has neither love nor hate, and with indifference smiles upon the light at heart and to the heavy brings a deeper sorrow. It is a great irony that the old Greek, so wise and prudent, who fancied that the gods lived utterly apart from human passions, divinely unconscious in their high palaces of grief and joy, the hope and despair, of the turbulent crowd of men, should have gone down to posterity as the apostle of brutish pleasure. But the silent woman did not look for solace. She had a vehement pride which caused her to seek comfort only in her own heart; and when, against her will, heavy tears rolled down her cheeks, she shook her head impatiently.

Freud's Theory and Its Use in Literary and Cultural Studies: An Introduction

Product : Freud's Theory and Its Use in Literary and Cultural Studies: An Introduction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Few figures have had as much influence on Western thought as Sigmund Freud. His ideas permeate our culture to such a degree that an understanding of them is indispensable. Yet many otherwise well-informed students in the humanities labor under misconceptions about Freudian theory. There are countless introductions to Freudian psychoanalysis but, surprisingly, none that combine a genuinely accessible account of Freud's ideas with an introduction to their use in literary and cultural studies, as this book does. Written specifically for use by advanced undergraduate and graduate students in courses dealing with literary and cultural criticism, it is also of interest to the general reader. The first part of the book explains Freud's key ideas and refutes many popular misconceptions, using examples throughout. The assumption underlying this account is that Freud offers not simply a model of the mind, but an analysis of the relation between the individual and society. The second part addresses the implications of Freudian psychoanalysis for the study of literature and culture, again using plentiful examples. Existing books focus either on Freudian psychoanalysis in general or on psychoanalytic literary or cultural criticism; the latter tend to be abstract and theoretical in nature. None of them are suitable for readers who are interested in psychoanalysis as a tool for literary and cultural criticism but have no firm knowledge of Freud's ideas. Freud's Theory and Its Use in Literary and Cultural Studies fills this gap. Henk de Berg is Professor of German at the University of Sheffield, UK.

The grim reality: if you don't make it through Q school, you're not on the PGA tour. You're out. And those who make it to the six day finals are the lucky ones: Hundreds more players fail to get through the equally grueling first two stages of the event. John Feinstein tells the story of the players who compete for these coveted positions in the 2005 Q school as only he can. With arresting accounts from the players, established winners, rising stars, the defeated and the endlessly hopeful, America's favorite sportswriter unearths the inside story behind the PGA Tour's brutal all-or-nothing competition.

Flaubert's Characters: The Language of Illusion

Product : Flaubert's Characters: The Language of Illusion
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This major new study takes issue both with the traditional critical view that Flaubert's central characters are weak and with the approach adopted by a number of contemporary critics who claim that character is deliberately undermined in the interests of non-representational writing. Rather, Dr Knight explores the relationship between the contents of Flaubert's stories and his practice as a writer, thereby reinstating the functional value of character in his work. She shows that essential aspects of Flaubert's aesthetic - the opaqueness of language, stupidity, fascination and reverie as the object of art - depend on the psychological make-up of fictional characters: their pathological relationship to language and reality mirrors Flaubert's conception of the readers' stupefied response to his own stylistic effects and to his wilfully naive stories. Flaubert emerges as a representational writer, but one who is supremely self-conscious of the fictional status of his representations.

Wellington's Charge

Product : Wellington's Charge
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Reform Parliament," said the Duke - "tamper with the strongest and finest political system in Europe, the only one that had stood up to France - and you open the way to revolution and anarchy." The Duke of Wellington's charge was England: for 60 years, England was his cause, his love, his master, and his responsibility. He served his country with an unswerving devotion, as professional soldier, as cabinet minister, and as prime minister. In return he enjoyed a unique level of deference and respect from England's people, politicians, and royalty. Mention the 'Duke', and everyone knew who was being talked about. This instant recognition was a measure of his enormous stature. Wellington's Charge is both the story of the Duke's service to the nation form the 1780s, when first he joined the army, to 1851 when the Great Exhibition opened, shortly before he died; and the story of England during that dramatic period in England's history. The Duke was witness to great changes - many of which he deplored - revolution, industrialization, the reform of Parliament, the beginnings of the welfare state, concession in Ireland, and the rise of free trade - all of which are brought to life vividly in this illuminating and fresh approach to the man and his times. Wellington's Charge is a rich and colorful tapestry of the country the Iron Duke fought for so faithfully and loyally - a celebration of patriotism, duty, and public service.

Imperator

Product : Imperator
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From Western civilization's greatest empire came history's most gifted and accomplished man. Emerging from a society populated by powerful men with great ambitions, against a backdrop of social change and political upheaval, one man stood as a giant among men. Almost more than a man, he was an irresistible force of nature. "Imperator - The Life of Gaius Julius Caesar" by Philip Katz is a fictional recreation of the life of the greatest of all Romans, Gaius Julius Caesar. It is a personal memoir, the inside story of his world as viewed through his eyes, written in the first person, suppressed by Caesar's successors, only to be rediscovered in modern times. Born to one of Rome's most prestigious families, Caesar went on to conquer all of Western Europe in the name of Rome. He then conquered Rome to liberate his countrymen from a corrupt Senate. Caesar's energy, intellect, and desire for achievement brought him the jealousy and animosity of his peers along with enormous political opposition. Ultimately, his fight against the corrupt, political establishment and his quest for a more sustainable society brought him into direct conflict with the ruling class of Rome. Gaius Julius Caesar begins writing his life story on the heels of the Alexandrian war while spending some time on the Nile in the company of Cleopatra, Queen and Pharaoh of Egypt, reflecting on the halcyon days of his childhood that quickly gave way to smoldering hostilities between the great men of the state, followed by the burst into the conflagration of civil war. The lack of information about Caesar's early life makes these formative years of particular importance to the narrative as his character and motivations are placed in the context of recorded history. The reader is invited to step back two thousand years to witness the collapse of the Republic that subjugated the entire Mediterranean world but could not govern itself. With "Imperator - The Life of Gaius Julius Caesar" author Philip Katz creates an atmosphere in which ancient Rome comes back to life, seen through the eyes of the man who was the principle instrument of fortune and change, Gaius Julius Caesar.

Transactions on Large-Scale Data- And Knowledge-Centered Systems I

Product : Transactions on Large-Scale Data- And Knowledge-Centered Systems I
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The LNCS journal Transactions on Large-Scale Data- and Knowledge-Centered Systems focuses on data management, knowledge discovery, and knowledge processing, which are core and hot topics in computer science. Since the 1990s, the Internet has become the main driving force behind applicational development in all domains. An increase in the demand for resource sharing across different sites connected through networks has led to an evolvement of data- and knowledge-management systems from centralized systems to decentralized systems enabling large-scale distributed applications providing high scalability. Current decentralized systems still focus on data and knowledge as their main resource. Feasibility of these systems relies basically on P2P (peer-to-peer) techniques and the support of agent systems with scaling and decentralized control. Synergy between Grids, P2P systems, and agent technologies is the key to data- and knowledge-centered systems in large-scale environments. This, the inaugural issue of Transactions on Large-Scale Data- and Knowledge-Centered Systems, consists of journal versions of talks invited to the DEXA 2009 conference and further invited contributions by well-known scientists in the field. Therefore, the content of this issue covers a wide range of different topics in the area of the title of this new journal.

Doris Lessing: Border Crossings

Product : Doris Lessing: Border Crossings
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is an edited collection offering up-to-date critical coverage of a wide range of Lessing's work. Despite winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, Doris Lessing has received relatively little critical attention. One of the reasons for this is that Lessing has spent much of her lifetime and her long published writing career crossing both national and ideological borders. This essay collection reflects and explores the incredible variety of Lessing's border crossings and positions her writing in its various social and cultural contexts. Lessing crosses literal national borders in her life and work, but more controversial have been her crossings of genre borders into sci-fi and 'space fiction', and her crossing of ideological borders such as moving into and out of the Communist Party and from a colonial into a post-colonial world. This timely collection also considers a number of the most interesting recent critical and theoretical approaches to Lessing's writing, including work on maternity and abjection in relation to "The Fifth Child" and "The Grass is Singing," eco-criticism in Lessing's 'Ifrakan' novels, and postcolonial re-writings of landscape in her African Stories.

Memoirs of a Geisha

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this literary tour de force, novelist Arthur Golden enters a remote and shimmeringly exotic world. For the protagonist of this peerlessly observant first novel is Sayuri, one of Japan's most celebrated geisha, a woman who is both performer and courtesan, slave and goddess. We follow Sayuri from her childhood in an impoverished fishing village, where in 1929, she is sold to a representative of a geisha house, who is drawn by the child's unusual blue-grey eyes. From there she is taken to Gion, the pleasure district of Kyoto. She is nine years old. In the years that follow, as she works to pay back the price of her purchase, Sayuri will be schooled in music and dance, learn to apply the geisha's elaborate makeup, wear elaborate kimono, and care for a coiffure so fragile that it requires a special pillow. She will also acquire a magnanimous tutor and a venomous rival. Surviving the intrigues of her trade and the upheavals of war, the resourceful Sayuri is a romantic heroine on the order of Jane Eyre and Scarlett O'Hara. And "Memoirs of a Geisha" is a triumphant work - suspenseful, and utterly persuasive.

Child Care in the 1990s: Trends and Consequences

Product : Child Care in the 1990s: Trends and Consequences
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Bringing together professionals from sociology, economics, psychology, and family studies, this volume presents papers from a symposium on child care that sought answers to each of the four questions listed in the table of contents. A lead speaker provided an answer, and discussants had a chance to critique the main presentation and set forth their own views. Each session also included a policy person to deal with issues from an applied perspective. The lead papers, review papers, and rejoinders constitute the contents of this volume. Interdisciplinary in scope, it deals with the central issue in a systematic way and attempts to present divergent points of view on each question. As such, it provides the reader with current information and a review of issues intended to provoke new ways of thinking about child care.

Easy Money

Product : Easy Money
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From one of Sweden's most successful defense lawyers comes an unflinching look at Stockholm's underworld, told from the perspective of the mob bosses, the patsies, and the thugs who help operate its twisted justice system. JW is a student having trouble keeping up appearances in the rich party crowd he has involved himself with. He's desperate for money, and when he's offered a job dealing drugs to the very crowd he's vying for a place in, he accepts it. Meanwhile, Jorge, a young Latino drug dealer, has just broken out of jail and is itching for revenge. When JW's supplier gets wind of Jorge's escape, he suggests JW track him down and attempt to win his trust in order to cover more area in the drug circuit. But JW's not the only one on Jorge's trail: Mrado, the brutal muscle behind the Yugoslavian mob boss whose goons were the ones who ratted Jorge out to the cops, is also on the hunt. But like everyone else, he's tired of being a mere pawn in an impossibly risky game, and he's seeking to carve out a niche of his own. As the paths of these antiheroes intertwine further, they find themselves mercilessly pitted against one another in a world where allegiances are hard-won, revenge is hard-fought, and a way out of it all is even harder to come by. Fast and intricately paced, and with pitch-perfect dialogue, "Easy Money" is a raw, dark, and intelligent crime novel that has catapulted Jens Lapidus into the company of Sweden's most acclaimed crime writers. "From the Hardcover edition."

Helen Keller in Love

Product : Helen Keller in Love
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A captivating novel that explores the little-known romance of a beloved American icon Helen Keller has long been a towering figure in the pantheon of world heroines. Yet the enduring portrait of her in the popular imagination is "The Miracle Worker," which ends when Helen is seven years old. Rosie Sultan's debut novel imagines a part of Keller's life she rarely spoke of or wrote about: the man she once loved. When Helen is in her thirties and Annie Sullivan is diagnosed with tuberculosis, a young man steps in as a private secretary. Peter Fagan opens a new world to Helen, and their sensual interactions--signing and lip-reading with hands and fingers--quickly set in motion a liberating, passionate, and clandestine affair. It's not long before Helen's secret is discovered and met with stern disapproval from her family and Annie. As pressure mounts, the lovers plot to elope, and Helen is caught between the expectations of the people who love her and her most intimate desires. Richly textured and deeply sympathetic, Sultan's highly inventive telling of a story Keller herself would not tell is both a captivating romance and a rare glimpse into the mind and heart of an inspirational figure.

Language Acquisition: Studies in First Language Development

Product : Language Acquisition: Studies in First Language Development
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The aim of the first edition of Language Acquisition was to provide as comprehensive a description and explanation as possible of the changes in the child's language as he or she grows older. In this second edition Paul Fletcher and Michael Garman have the same fundamental aim. Six years later the field has not changed dramatically, but there have been fruitful theoretical developments - the learnability hypothesis, in particular, has been influentially expounded - and empirical work seeking evidence of specific language capacities in children has made notable advances. Equally significant are shifts in emphasis: the growing interest in cross-linguistic studies, for example, or accounts of language development of reading and writing. All these changes are reflected in the second edition. About half the chapters are entirely new, having been specially commissioned for this edition. The remainder of the book consists of substantially revised versions of chapters from the first edition. Like its predecessor, this collection is the work of distinguished specialists from many countries and will provide an invaluable resource for students and professionals alike who have an interest in the field of child language acquisition.
