Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Mariah Conrad has come home. Badly wounded on active duty in Afghanistan and finally released stateside, she has no family to call on and nowhere to go--until Quinn Walker arrives at her bedside. Quinn...her brother-in-arms, ex-lover and now maybe her future. Quinn brings Mariah to his log cabin in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky to rest and recuperate both physically and emotionally. While she's incredibly grateful, Mariah is also confused and frustrated. She's always stood on her own two feet, but now even that can literally be torture. She's having flashbacks and blackouts, hearing helicopter noises in the night. She wants to push Quinn away--and hold him closer than ever. But will she get the chance? Those helicopters are more than just post-traumatic stress; they're real--and dangerous. Bad things are happening on the mountain. Suddenly there's a battle to be fought on the home front, and no guarantee of survival.

Lockheed Stealth: The Evolution of an American Arsenal

Product : Lockheed Stealth: The Evolution of an American Arsenal
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When it comes to stealth technologies, Lockheed Martin has unarguably outpaced its peers in design and deployment. This in-depth look at the development of Lockheed's stealth program explains how Skunkworks designers and engineers have minimized and even eliminated radar, thermal, acoustic, and radar signatures in the F-117 Nighthawk, F-22 Raptor, and X-35 Joint Strike Fighter contender. Illustrated with photos from Lockheed archives and private collections, the story begins with the origins of stealth in 1974 and continues through the current service and battle records of the F-117 and F-22, as well as the design and testing of X-35 prototypes vying with Boeing's X-32 for the Pentagon's Joint Strike Fighter contract. Respected aviation author Bill Sweetman also explains the technologies and design elements that allow an aircraft to evade detection, and looks ahead to the future of stealth technology in projects like the Comanche helicopter and Sea Shadow warship.

Sperm Counts: Overcome by Man's Most Precious Fluid

Product : Sperm Counts: Overcome by Man's Most Precious Fluid
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : 2007 Choice Outstanding Academic Title Winner of the Passing the Torch Award from the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies It has been called sperm, semen, seed, cum, jizz, spunk, gentlemen's relish, and splooge. But however the "tacky, opaque liquid that comes out of the penis" is described, the very act of defining "sperm" and "semen" depends on your point of view. For Lisa Jean Moore, how sperm comes to be known is based on who defines it (a scientist vs. a defense witness, for example), under what social circumstances it is found (a doctor's office vs. a crime scene), and for what purposes it will be used (in vitro fertilization vs. DNA analysis). Examining semen historically, medically, and culturally, Sperm Counts is a penetrating exploration of its meaning and power. Using a "follow that sperm" approach, Moore shows how representations of sperm and semen are always in flux, tracing their twisting journeys from male reproductive glands to headline news stories and presidential impeachment trials. Much like the fluid of semen itself can leak onto fabrics and into bodies, its meanings seep into our consciousness over time. Moore's analytic lens yields intriguing observations of how sperm is "spent" and "reabsorbed" as it spurts, swims, and careens through penises, vaginas, test tubes, labs, families, cultures, and politics. Drawn from fifteen years of research, Sperm Counts examines historical and scientific documents, children's "facts of life" books, pornography, the Internet, forensic transcripts and sex worker narratives to explain how semen got so complicated. Among other things, understanding how we produce, represent, deploy and institutionalize semen-biomedically, socially and culturally-provides valuable new perspectives on the changing social position of men and the evolving meanings of masculinity. Ultimately, as Moore reveals, sperm is intimately involved in not only the physical reproduction of males and females, but in how we come to understand ourselves as men and women.

Used Books: Marking Readers in Renaissance England

Product : Used Books: Marking Readers in Renaissance England
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In a recent sale catalog, one bookseller apologized for the condition of a sixteenth-century volume as "rather soiled by use." When the book was displayed the next year, the exhibition catalogue described it as "well and piously used with] marginal notations in an Elizabethan hand that] bring to life an early and earnest owner"; and the book's buyer, for his part, considered it to be "enlivened by the marginal notes and comments." For this collector, as for an increasing number of cultural historians and historians of the book, a marked-up copy was more interesting than one in pristine condition. William H. Sherman recovers a culture that took the phrase "mark my words" quite literally. Books from the first two centuries of printing are full of marginalia and other signs of engagement and use, such as customized bindings, traces of food and drink, penmanship exercises, and doodles. These marks offer a vast archive of information about the lives of books and their place in the lives of their readers. Based on a survey of thousands of early printed books, "Used Books" describes what readers wrote in and around their books and what we can learn from these marks by using the tools of archaeologists as well as historians and literary critics. The chapters address the place of book-marking in schools and churches, the use of the "manicule" (the ubiquitous hand-with-pointing-finger symbol), the role played by women in information management, the extraordinary commonplace book used for nearly sixty years by Renaissance England's greatest lawyer-statesman, and the attitudes toward annotated books among collectors and librarians from the Middle Ages to the present. This wide-ranging, learned, and often surprising book will make the marks of Renaissance readers more visible and legible to scholars, collectors, and bibliophiles.

Product : The Glories of War: Small Battle and Early Heroes of 1861
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A unique telling of Civil War military activity in 1861, The Glories of War focuses on the Union's invasion of Virginia from four directions; it is the first study of the four invasion corridors of the Civil War. The Union invasions mainly produced small battles and skirmishes, as well as widely celebrated heroes, that received national attention in both the North and South but are forgotten today. Major themes include combatants' romanticized visions of the "glories of war," as well as their subsequent disillusionment. Special emphasis is placed on military activity in western Virginia (modern West Virginia), which has received limited study. Extensive use of Union and Confederate newspapers, along with previously unused sources, brings new information to readers. The text is supplemented by maps depicting both overviews and details of military action.

Product : Tracking the 101st Cavalry
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The 101st Cavalry was a New York National Guard unit that spent the final months of World War II doing reconnaissance for the U.S. 7th Army. They crossed the Saar River in March, and were closing in on Innsbruck, Austria, when the war ended. Attached at various times to, among others, the 4th Infantry Division, the 63rd Infantry Division, the 12th Armored Division, and the 101st Airborne, the 101st Cavalry found a series of concentration camps in the woods near Landsberg and liberated Oflag VIIA, a prisoner of war camp for Polish officers near Murnau. When Melaney Welch Moisan set out in 2004 to find out what her father had done in World War II, she discovered that many other men in the 101st had stories of their own to tell. This book is the story of her journey to connect with her father's past. It is also the story the men who served in the 101st Cavalry, and others whose lives they touched during those few months of the war. More than 100 photos and 17 maps.

Commentary on the Book of Enoch

Product : Commentary on the Book of Enoch
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Fifty years after James Bruce brought a copy of the Book of Enoch, found in Ethiopia, to England, Richard Laurence made a first modern translation. Later, R.H. Charles made another translation using some Greek excerpts, and more Ethiopian texts. Then recently, Michael A Knibb, using many texts, and partial texts, put together an ?adequate' translation. Yet, all of these translations are rough, obscure, and confusing to Christians of today. The Dead Sea Scrolls contained many copies and partial copies of the Book of Enoch, In the Dead Sea scrolls, there were found 17 copies. Comparitively, there were 30 copies of Psalms, 25 copies of Deuteronomy, 19 of Isaiah, 15 of Genesis and Exodus, 14 Of Jubilees. Jude validated The Book Of Enoch with his quote from it. Using all of the sources now available, along with an in-depth study of book, I have prepared this paraphrase/translation. Along with such, I have included an commentary to help in its comparison with the Bible. John D. Ladd was raised the son of an Assemblies of God pastor. He attended Northeast Bible College, in Pennsylvania, and later, Malone College, in Canton, Ohio. He pastored for many years, was ordained in the Assemblies of God, but later left to pastor independent churches. Preferring teaching to preaching, he has spent many years studying, reading books from the early church period, and translating\paraphrasing them for ease of use by Christians of today. This book of Enoch's has been translated, paraphrased, and now is being given commentary, to compare it with the Bible's message, to test it by the Word of God. How does it compare? Is it in agreement with the message and prophetic teachings of the Bible?

Shalom Church: The Body of Christ as Ministering Community

Product : Shalom Church: The Body of Christ as Ministering Community
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While many manuals advise clergy and congregants on tactics for church survival or thriving, few address the deepest identity, shape, and imperatives of the church in its identity in Christ and the tradition of discipling that stems from his life, work, death, and resurrection. As compelling as it is clear, Craig Nessan's important new work retrieves biblical metaphors of the body of Christ and, following Dietrich Bonhoeffer, sees church today as "Christ existing as community." The theological-probing Nessan then adds contextual analysis and describes the four chief imperatives that mark Christ's presence in the world today: peacemaking, justice-making, care for creation, and engagement with the other. He then unfolds the real-life implications of this paradigm of Christian community for local church structure, strategies for partnering, public witness, and interreligious engagement.

Grafters and Goo Goos: Corruption and Reform in Chicago

Product : Grafters and Goo Goos: Corruption and Reform in Chicago
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Chicago's reputation for corruption is the basis of local and national folklore and humor. "Grafters and Goo Goos: Corruption and Reform in Chicago, 1833-2003" unfolds the city's notorious history of corruption and the countervailing reform struggles that largely failed to clean it up. More than a regional history of crime in politics, this wide-ranging account of governmental malfeasances traces ongoing public corruption and reform to its nineteenth-century democratic roots. Former Chicago journalist James L. Merriner reveals the battles between corrupt politicos and ardent reformers to be expressions of conflicting class, ethnic, and religious values. From Chicago's earliest years in the 1830s, the city welcomed dollar-chasing businessmen and politicians, swiftly followed by reformers who strived to clean up the attendant corruption. Reformers in Chicago were called "goo goos," a derisive epithet short for "good-government types." "Grafters and Goo Goos" contends a certain synergy defined the relationship between corruption and reform. Politicians and reformers often behaved similarly, their separate ambitions merging into a conjoined politics of interdependency wherein the line between heroes and villains grew increasingly faint. The real story, asserts Merriner, has less to do with right against wrong than it does with the ways the cultural backgrounds of politicians and reformers steered their own agendas, animating and defining each other by their opposition. Drawing on original and archival research, Merriner identifies constants in the struggle between corruption and reform amid a welter of changing social circumstances and customs--decades of alternating warand peace, hardships and prosperity. Three areas of reform and resistance are identified: structural reform of the political system to promote honesty and efficiency, social reform to provide justice to the lower classes, and moral reform to combat vice. "In the matter of corruption and reform, the constants might be stronger than the variables," writes Merriner in the Preface. "The players, rules, and scorekeepers change, but not the essential game." Complemented by eighteen illustrations, "Grafters and Goo Goos "is rife with shocking and amusing anecdotes and peppered with the personalities of famous muckrakers, bootleggers, mayors, and mobsters. While other studies have profiled infamous Chicago corruption cases and figures such as Al Capone and Richard J. Daley, this is the first to provide an overview appropriate for historians and general readers alike. In examining Chicago's notorious saga of corruption and reform against a backdrop of social history, Merriner calls attention to our constant problems of both civic and national corruption and contributes to larger discussions about the American experiment of democratic self-government.

The Spirit and the Sword

Product : The Spirit and the Sword
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Martial arts are not a distinctly Eastern phenomenon. The West has had numerous fighting forms that have developed sufficiently to be considered Martial arts. However, the vast majority of these Martial disciplines have not survived the advancement of the West toward technological combat. In this fascinating and highly instructive volume, John Michael Greer reveals a little known living tradition of swordsmanship that has survived into the twenty-first century behind the sealed doors of small and secretive fraternal lodges. Greer integrates these techniques of the sword with the development of the whole person along Qabalistic evolutionary principles that will be familiar to many Western esotericists. What emerges is a highly important component of the Western secret tradition, the nearly lost Art of the Sword. If you have ever longed to feel the power of live steel in your hand, face to face with a worthy adversary on the field of honorable combat, then this is the book for you.

100 Million Unnecessary Returns: A Simple, Fair, and Competitive Tax Plan for the United States; With a New Introduction

Product : 100 Million Unnecessary Returns: A Simple, Fair, and Competitive Tax Plan for the United States; With a New Introduction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : To most Americans, the United States tax code has become a vast and confounding puzzle. In 1940, the instructions to the form 1040 were about four pages long. Today they have ballooned to more than a hundred pages, and the form itself contains more than ten schedules and twenty worksheets. The complete tax code totals about 2.8 million words--about four times the length of "War and Peace." In this intriguing book, Michael Graetz maintains that our tax code has become a tangle of loopholes, paperwork, and inconsistencies--a massive social program that fails tests of simplicity and fairness. More important, our tax system has failed to keep pace with the changing economy, creating burdens and wastes of resources that weigh our nation down. Graetz offers a solution. Imagine a world in which most Americans pay no income tax at all, and those who do enjoy a far simpler tax process--all this without decreasing government revenues or removing key incentives for employer-sponsored health care plans and pensions. As Graetz adeptly and clearly describes, this world is within our grasp.

Bound for Montana: Diaries from the Bozeman Trail

Product : Bound for Montana: Diaries from the Bozeman Trail
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On May 14, 1866, Perry Burgess summed up the expectations and hopes of countless westering Americans when he wrote in his diary: "packed up and started on our journey toward the land of gold." Here are stories of the prospectors, freighters, wives, and merchants who, like Burgess, traveled the Bozeman Trails in search of fortune, adventure, or a new life. A shortcut from the Platte River Road to the Montana goldfields, the Bozeman Trail was relatively short in length--less than five hundred miles--yet it has the enduring distinction of being the last great overland emigrant trail in the American West. Encounter the trail as it was experienced by seven travelers: the leader of a company of Michigan men who traveled with one of the first groups to cross it; a new bride traveling with her husband; two young men--a store clerk and a typesetter--for whom the trip was a thoroughly enjoyable adventure; a prospector out to make his fortune in the West; a sober Civil War veteran concerned about the possibility of Indian attack; and the supervisor of a freight train who found time to write despite his heavy responsibilities. Join their journey through these annotated diaries, and discover the dangers and pleasures, frustrations and joys of travel on the Bozeman Trail.

Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse: A Story of Transmission [With CD (Audio)]

Product : Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse: A Story of Transmission [With CD (Audio)]
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Beautiful, evocative, and eminently useful, this rich array of texts chants on CD and images handsomely fills out the practices of the "Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse" tradition. The foundational practices from the Heart Essence transmission that was revealed by Jigme Lingpa have for over three centuries been one of the most widely practiced and beloved gateways to Dzogchen in Tibet. Like most Tibetan practices, these are chanted in solitary practice or in groups, their words supporting the vision, emotion, and understanding being cultivated. The compilation of texts, story, history, music, and commentaries in this book helps the practitioner more fully understand the elements of practice. And the included chantable English translation matches the meter of the Tibetan original and thus can be sung to the traditional Tibetan melodies that are also part of its transmission. The Heart Essence remains a living tradition. A contemporary lama of this tradition, Adzom Rinpoche, widely regarded in Tibet as an incarnation of Jigme Lingpa, prepared a condensed version of Jigme Lingpa's famous text also included here. The accompanying CD contains the Tibetan and English chanting of both his and Jigme Lingpa's practice texts. In addition, three color-picture sections show images of land and objects sacred to the Heart Essence tradition and also of deities and lamas in the transmission including a section on Adzom Gar, a major twentieth-century seat of this teaching in Kham. This is the first-ever chantable English translation of one of the most beloved and widely used practice texts, the "Longchen Nyinthig."

Lost Mansions of Mississippi, Volume II

Product : Lost Mansions of Mississippi, Volume II
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As preservationist Mary Carol Miller talked with Mississippians about her books on lost mansions and landmarks, enthusiasts brought her more stories of great architecture ravaged by time. The twenty-seven houses included in her new book are among the most memorable of Mississippi's vanished antebellum and Victorian mansions. The list ranges from the oldest house in the Natchez region, lost in a 1966 fire, to a Reconstruction-era home that found new life as a school for freed slaves. From two Gulf Coast landmarks both lost to Hurricane Katrina, to the mysteriously misplaced facades of Hernando's White House and Columbus's Flynnwood, these homes mark high points in the broad sweep of Mississippi history and the state's architectural legacy. Miller tells the stories of these homes through accounts from the families who built and maintained them. These structures run the stylistic gamut from Greek revival to Second Empire, and their owners include everyone from Revolutionary-era soldiers to governors and scoundrels.

Yet neither seeks to regain its former military power; on the contrary, antimilitarism has become so deeply rooted in the Japanese and German national psyches that even such questions as participation in international peacekeeping forces are met with widespread domestic opposition. In Cultures of Antimilitarism: National Security in Germany and Japan Thomas Berger analyzes the complex domestic and international political forces that brought about this unforeseen transformation.

Sheldrake and His Critics: The Sense of Being Glared at

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Rupert Sheldrake outraged the scientific establishment in the early 1980s with his hypothesis of morphic resonance, and his book A New Science of Life was denounced by the journal Nature as ?the best candidate for burning there has been for many years?. With his academic career torpedoed, Sheldrake has become the champion of ?the people's science?. Books such as Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home and The Sense of Being Stared At have won him popular acclaim and continued academic opprobrium in equal measure. In "Sheldrake and his Critics" (a special issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies), Sheldrake summarizes his case for the ?non-visual detection of staring? and his claims are scrutinised by 14 distinguished researchers, to whose commentaries Sheldrake then responds. Anthony Freeman, in his editorial introduction, explores the concept of ?heresy? in science and in religion and asks why it provokes such hostility.

Product : The Gadfly
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Gadfly (1897) by Ethel Lillian Voynich is a startling multi-layered story of ideological transformation, love, and legendary, superhuman courage. It encapsulates the life of Arthur Burton and his transition from a delicate and beautiful, innocent youth to a disillusioned and outspoken revolutionary hero, a remarkable man who undergoes a crisis of faith and becomes the proverbial Gadfly. The Gadfly is an ordinary man with human failings and weaknesses, a secret love, and a complex burden of pain. And yet he is larger than life, a superhero of fortitude, an atheist and humanist, an outspoken opponent of the political status quo and a proponent of freedom for the people; his words devastate and sting his enemies by the force of truth they convey. Set in Italy during the tumultuous period of political unrest in the middle of the nineteenth century, this unusual novel was an inspirational bestseller abroad, particularly remarkable in its emotional impact. And now it deserves to be discovered by a whole new generation of readers.

Suffering in Silence: The Legacy of Unresolved Sexual Abuse

Product : Suffering in Silence: The Legacy of Unresolved Sexual Abuse
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The body remembers sexual abuse and keeping family secrets causes illness. Unwittingly and unwillingly, our parents and grandparents and ancestors often leave us the legacy of their unfinished mourning, their "undigested" traumas, and the hidden shame of their secret family history. Sexual abuse and other traumas experienced in the family's past create insurmountable or unresolved emotional wounds that leave their mark on future generations. If these emotions are not expressed consciously, they get repressed. The pain then persists unexpressed in the unconscious and is handed down to the children in the next generation. When traumatic things are not talked about at the time, the body is left with the job of expressing this unfelt pain. This is what we call somatization. If such is the case, the child's body can become a physical expression of the withheld emotional pain for the wounded parents or grandparents or great-grandparents, indeed, as a physical "acting out" of their unfelt emotional pain. As a result, it becomes necessary to get the "family skeletons out of the closet" to reveal and heal the repressed historic wounds and free the child's body from the inherited "secret chill." In effect, these secrets are often carried down as an intestinal disturbance in the child's body until someone in the family line actually admits the secret, feels the emotional pain and gets the withheld pain released from the child's body by talking about it to the clinician.

Beyond Celts, Germans and Sycythians: Archaeology and Identity in Iron Age Europe

Product : Beyond Celts, Germans and Sycythians: Archaeology and Identity in Iron Age Europe
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Who were the Iron Age peoples of Europe? Celts, Germans, Scythians: these are among the names that come to mind. But such names and the characteristics associated with them, come to us from outside observers - Greek and Roman writers - not from the native peoples themselves. To understand how late prehistoric groups constructed and expressed their identities, we need to examine the rich archaeological evidence left by the Iron Age Europeans themselves. Recent theoretical and methodological advances in anthropology, archaeology and history, together with results of archaeological research all over Europe, provide the basis for a new approach to the problem of the identities of Iron Age peoples. Peter Wells uses patterns of identity revealed in the archaeology to interpret the commentaries of Greek and Roman authors who conveyed their own perceptions of these non-literate groups. Finally, he examines ways in which Iron Age Europeans responded to the Greek and Roman representations of them. The result was an ever-changing mosaic of complex and dynamic identities among the diverse peoples of Late Iron Age Europe.

Thou Shalt Not Think: The Brutally Frank Guide to Life

Product : Thou Shalt Not Think: The Brutally Frank Guide to Life
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Every once in awhile, there comes a book of such incomparable grace and gentility - a book which proclaims and celebrates the divine, innate perfection in every single human being and the unquestionable supremacy of the human condition with such overflowing praise and devotion - that it makes its readers fall in mad, boundless love with themselves all over again. Well, this isn't that book. No, this book is a bitch-slap. for the whole damn human race. THOU SHALT NOT THINK: The Brutally Frank Guide to Life is the book which takes a bold, uncompromising stand and admits what few today will admit: that thinking - true thinking - is reviled, and that all those who even attempt to truly practice it are criminals in the eyes of "decent" society. In a wholly unholy manner, THOU SHALT NOT THINK combines a profound sense of philosophical outrage and extreme psychological disturbance with a light-hearted and, most likely, completely inappropriate sort of gallows humor. Inspired by such chapter titles as "The Most Insidious Kink: The Bondage of Religion" and "The Completely Rotten, Low-life Bastards of the Mental 'Health' Industry," voodoo priests, soccer moms, and other militant, jittery addicts of the sadistic status quo everywhere will clamor en masse for its total and utter destruction, armed with pitchforks and torches in hand. If you've ever secretly hungered for a book that tells it like it is, THOU SHALT NOT THINK is for you. If you've ever felt privately and painfully alone in a world of nightmarish stupidity, THOU SHALT NOT THINK is for you. If you've ever yearned for a book that might at least present options for survival in the face of such horrible odds, THOU SHALT NOT THINK is foryou. .But if none of these things applies to you, THOU SHALT NOT THINK is most definitely not for you. Try another damn Sudoku book instead.

Description : During the first half of the 20th century railroads were the life-blood of the country. They carried passengers and commerce to every corner of the nation. In Kentucky, plans were made as early as 1891 for a railroad to link Morgan County's coal fields with the C&O Railroad at Morehead. In 1906 the Morehead & North Fork Railway linked with the C&O in Morehead and the town soon replaced Farmers as the commercial and industrial center of the region.

Space Tethers and Space Elevators

Product : Space Tethers and Space Elevators
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This detailed account of the possibilities of tethers in space, from very practical applications to (near) science fiction, gives an overview of the past, present and future of space tether development and presents the various concepts, ranging from those feasible in the near future to extremely innovative and challenging ideas. It shows how space tethers have already been used to stabilize spacecraft using tidal forces and to generate artificial gravity using a spinning system with a spacecraft connected to a counterweight via a cable. Tethers can also generate electricity by dragging spacecraft through the Eartha (TM)s magnetosphere, as was attempted with partial success during two Space Shuttle missions. Using electrodynamic forces, conductive tethers can also accelerate or brake a spacecraft. Probably the most exciting tether concept is the space elevator, consisting of an incredibly strong long cable that stretches from the Eartha (TM)s surface into space. Solar powered "climber" machines, which are already under development, could use such a cable to haul cargo into orbit. The author also describes how space tethers can change the orbit of satellites, by effectively moving their center of gravity through the deployment of long cables. Tethers rotating at high speed can be used to accelerate or slow down spacecraft that briefly latch to them. In principle, such "momentum exchange" tethers can be used to fly a space probe from low Earth orbit all the way into orbit around Mars, without the need for rocket propulsion. A tether can also provide scientific information on the magnetosphere of the planet ita (TM)s orbiting. Michel van Pelt explains the principle of space tethers: what they are and how they can be used in space. He introduces non-technical space enthusiasts to the various possibilities of space tethers, the technological challenges, the potential benefits and their feasibility. He illustrates how, because of their inherent simplicity, space tethers have the potential to make space travel much cheaper, while ongoing advances in tether material technology may make even seemingly far-fetched ideas a reality in the not too distant future.

Diana Inquest: The Documents the Jury Never Saw

Product : Diana Inquest: The Documents the Jury Never Saw
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Diana Inquest: The Documents the Jury Never Saw exposes a massive suppression of evidence at the 2008 London inquest into the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed. This book - edited by investigative writer John Morgan - publishes for the first time over 100 documents that were withheld from the inquest jury by Lord Justice Scott Baker. It then goes on to list a further 400 items of vital evidence that Baker concealed from his own jury. The withheld documentation is so critical to the case that it calls into question whether the jury were actually in a position to achieve an informed verdict. Included in the 700 page book are the original official police statements of French experts Professor Dominique Lecomte and Dr Gilbert Ppin. Lecomte was the pathologist who conducted the controversial autopsy of Mercedes driver Henri Paul and Ppin was the toxicologist who carried out the testing on the autopsy samples. Both of these crucial witnesses refused to appear at the London inquest. Judge Baker had those statements but failed to have them read out or shown to the jury. Those police statements, along with many other crucial documents, are made public for the first time in this volume. The Documents the Jury Never Saw reveals a judicial censorship of key evidence that was so substantial that it indicates Scott Baker's inquest was more significant for the documents that weren't shown, than for those that the jury actually saw. John Morgan, who has authored a series of books on the Princess Diana inquest, has stated that the London inquest was not run by an independent judge. "The documents in this book are so central to the case, yet royal coroner Scott Baker prevented his jury from seeing them. It could be argued that there was no intention to allow that jury to get to the bottom of what happened in the Alma Tunnel on 31 August 1997." When this current book is read in the context of Morgan's Diana Inquest series, it enables the reader to understand the significance and reliability of the testimony of certain witnesses.

A Voyage to Arcturus

Product : A Voyage to Arcturus
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : David Lindsay (1874-1945) was a successful British businessman who turned to writing after the first World War. Unfortunately, his most famous work, A Voyage to Arcturus, proved to be a commercial disaster at the time of its release, and he spent the rest of his writing career struggling to achieve commercial success, with little result. A Voyage to Arcturus is a remarkable book on many levels. The Encyclopedia of Fantasy calls it "dazzlingly brilliant" and a "masterpiece." Without doubt, it is the one work for which Lindsay will be remembered. It is an allegorical fantasy, an adventure novel, an interplanetary romance, and an exploration of humanity and sexuality from a time when such topics were largely taboo in the popular press. It provides more than a few fascinating insights into human nature through social Darwinism. And, although Philip Jose Farmer is largely credited with the introduction of sex into science fiction with his groundbreaking 1940s pulp SF story, "The Lovers," Lindsay navigated these waters decades earlier.

All the problems teens face in that part of life were all felt in my words. Writing also helped me during my motheras ten-year battle with spinal cancer that she sadly lost in 1995. As hard as it was, I kept writing. Iave taken the poems that I wrote then and combined them with the ones as an adult.

The Charles Bowden Reader

Product : The Charles Bowden Reader
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From his first book, Killing the Hidden Waters, to his most recent, Murder City: Cuidad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields, Charles Bowden has been sounding an alarm about the rapacious appetites of human beings and the devastation we inflict on the natural world we arrogantly claim to possess. His own corner of the world, the desert borderlands between the United States and Mexico, is Bowden's prime focus, and through books, magazine articles, and newspaper journalism he has written eloquently about key issues roiling the border--drug-related violence that is shredding civil society, illegal immigration and its toll on human lives and the environment, destruction of fragile ecosystems as cities sprawl across the desert and suck up the limited supplies of water. This anthology gathers the best and most representative writing from Charles Bowden's entire career. It includes excerpts from his major books--Killing the Hidden Waters, Blue Desert, Desierto: Memories of the Future, Blood Orchid, Blues for Cannibals, A Shadow in the City, Inferno, Exodus, and Some of the Dead Are Still Breathing--as well as articles that appeared in Esquire, Harper's, Mother Jones, and other publications. Imbued with Bowden's distinctive rhythm and lyrical prose, these pieces also document his journey of exploration--a journey guided, in large part, by the question posed in Some of the Dead Are Still Breathing: "How do we live a moral life in a culture of death?" This is no metaphor; Bowden is referring to the people, history, animals, and ecosystems that are being extinguished in the onslaught of twenty-first-century culture. The perfect introduction to his work, The Charles Bowden Reader is also essential for those who know him well and want to see the whole panorama of his passionate, intense writing.

At the time, this was a key publication in bringing the Ogoni tragedy to the attention of the international community.

Punk House: Interiors in Anarchy

Product : Punk House: Interiors in Anarchy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The punk house may come in any number of forms. The most common type is often where a large group of like-minded punks cram into a house usually intended to accommodate two or three people, resulting in low rent and, thus, extended hours of leisure for the residents to pursue their true interests. "Punk House" features anarchist warehouses, feminist collectives, tree houses, workshops, artists studios, self-sufficient farms, hobo squats, community centers, basement bike shops, speakeasies, and all varieties of communal living spaces. In over 300 images of fifty houses in twenty-five cities in the US, photographer Abby Banks finds the already weathered face of a seventeen-year-old runaway; the soft hands of a vinyl junkie (record collector); the mohawked show-goer; the dirty dishes in the sink; silk screened posters on the wall; and many other revealing glimpses of these anarchist interiors.

The Montessori Reader: The Montessori Method, Dr. Montessori's Own Handbook, the Absorbent Mind

Product : The Montessori Reader: The Montessori Method, Dr. Montessori's Own Handbook, the Absorbent Mind
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Montessori method revolutionized how children were educated. The Montessori method is characterized by an emphasis on self-directed activity on the part of the child, using specialized materials that are presented very precisely by the teacher. It stresses the importance of adapting the child's learning environment to his or her developmental level, and of the role of physical activity in absorbing abstract concepts and practical skills. Collected here in this 3-in-1 omnibus edition are Maria Montessori's three most important works: The Absorbent Mind, Dr. Montessori's Own Handbook, and The Montessori Method. The Absorbent Mind was Maria Montessori's most in-depth work on her educational theory, based on decades of scientific observation of children. Her view on children and their absorbent minds was a landmark departure from the educational model at the time. This book helped start a revolution in education. Since this book first appeared there have been both cognitive and neurological studies that have confirmed what Maria Montessori knew decades ago. In Dr. Montessori's Own Handbook, Maria Montessori explains the basic of her system, how it works and why it works. There are dozens of figures to help illustrate her points. "My method is scientific, both in its substance and in its aim. It makes for the attainment of a more advanced stage of progress, in directions no longer only material and physiological." The Montessori Method teaches reading via phonics and whole language, the comparative benefits of which are currently being recognized. To all educators this book should prove most interesting. All who are fair-minded will admit the genius that shines from the pages whichfollow, and the remarkable suggestiveness of Dr. Montessori's labors.-Henry W. Holmes

Cohabiting Couples and Cold Feet: A Practical Marriage-Preparation Guide for Clergy

Product : Cohabiting Couples and Cold Feet: A Practical Marriage-Preparation Guide for Clergy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Clergy today are faced with a profound shift in American attitudes about marriage that affects the role they play with each couple. Our society at large today has strikingly different attitudes from those of just fifty years ago. Couples today are more likely to have cohabited before marriage, more likely to have children born out of wedlock, more likely to be married outside of the church, and more likely to be previously divorced than were their counterparts of the mid-20th century. This new pastoral resource, grounded in real-life examples, will be an important new pastoral tool for clergy and seminarians in the Episcopal Church and other mainline Protestant churches. It is organized chronologically, beginning with how to engage the couple making a first-time contact with a member of the clergy. It next unpacks the marriage rite itself, within contemporary and traditional viewpoints. Finally, the book addresses the critically important application of long-term support for the couple throughout their married lives.

What Freud Didn't Know: A Three-Step Practice for Emotional Well-Being Through Neuroscience and Psychology

Product : What Freud Didn't Know: A Three-Step Practice for Emotional Well-Being Through Neuroscience and Psychology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In a thoughtful and down-to-earth way, Timothy B. Stokes overturns old formulasaand many Freudian conceptsafor achieving personal change. During oneas lifetime, hidden memories, along with their misleading assumptions, can unconsciously trigger conflicted feelingsathe basis for most psychological problems, large and small. "What Freud Didnat Know," well-supported by research and groundbreaking in theory, combines neuroscience and psychology to explain how the amygdala region of the brain evolved to unconsciously record, store, and activate emotional memory loops and imagery associated with painful events, especially those of childhood. This book is the first to bring together diverse, post-Freudian discoveries to produce a coherent three-step practice for understanding problematic aspects of the human mind which can be mastered easily, in a clinical or self-help setting. Stokes explores recent breakthroughs, many in marked contrast to Freudas views, which will change how we view psychological and emotional problems and their treatments. Grounded in current theories about brain circuitry, "What Freud Didnat Know" integrates ideas about mindfulness, habitual thinking, and insight imagery and provides readers with the tools to rescript their personal narratives for psychological well-being. As an alternative approach to treating stress, most types of depression, anxiety, and phobias without prescription drugs, Stokesas three-step practice can be used to build resiliency and inner peace.

The Courageous State: Rethinking Economics, Society and the Role of Government

Product : The Courageous State: Rethinking Economics, Society and the Role of Government
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In The Courageous State, Richard Murphy argues that neoliberalism has bred weak governments led by weak politicians who believe implicitly in the supremacy of the market. It has created a cowardly state: a state that sees responsibility and then runs away from it. Worse, the weak politicians who run our cowardly state want power solely to ensure that as much tax revenue as possible is used to benefit the private sector that they idolise. But neoliberal theory is wrong - it has created the crises we're suffering. And it has no solution to them.The Courageous State argues powerfully for a new economic model. That model is based on a very different idea of what the role of the state is. The Courageous State is driven by its desire to work on behalf of the people of this country. And that means a Courageous State is populated by politicians who believe in government and in the power of the office they hold. They believe that office exists for the sake of the public good. They know what that public good is. They think it is their job to help each and every person in their country to achieve their potential, sustainably, in a strong mixed economy. And they believe they can command the resources to fulfil this task - whether through tax or other means.A Courageous State offers hope; our existing, cowardly, state does not. Which is why building a Courageous State is essential if we want to both solve our current problems and build a sustainable future.The question is, are you willing to be that Courageous?"Since the 2008 crash conventional economists have run out of ideas. But Richard Murphy abounds with them. He writes with electric clarity about what went wrong and what could be done to put things right. He is a new economic thinker, no mere theoretician but guided by a sharp and practical accountant's eye. He knows where the money is hidden, who has it and how to release it. Murphy is the closest thing to a one-man think tank and he is as courageous as he says our politicians should be." Polly Toynbee, The Guardian newspaper columnist and economics commentator"Rich individuals, corporations, well-funded special interest groups and much of Fleet Street is on one (the wrong) side and then there is Richard Murphy.. . the heroic figure. Tireless and forensic, driven by an admirable moral fervour, I take my hat off to a campaigner with Duracell batteries." Kevin Maguire, Sunday Mirror

Rational Zen: The Mind of Dogen Zenji

Product : Rational Zen: The Mind of Dogen Zenji
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Zen has often been portrayed as being illogical and mystifying, even aimed at the destruction of the rational intellect. These new translations of the thirteenth-century Zen master Dogen--one of most original and important Zen writers--illustrate the rational side of Zen, which has been obscured through the centuries, tainting people's understanding of it. "Rational Zen " consists of enlightening selections from Dogen's two masterworks, "Treasury of Eyes of True Teaching" (the famed "Shobogenzo," Japan's most sophisticated philosophical work) and "Universal Book of Eternal Peace," which until now has been unavailable in English. The translator also provides explanations of the inner meanings of Dogen's writings and sayings--the first commentaries of their kind of English. A compendium of authentic source materials further enhances the reader's insight into Dogen's methods, linking them to the great classical traditions of Buddhism that ultimately flowered in Zen.
