This I Know: Notes on Unraveling the Heart

Product : This I Know: Notes on Unraveling the Heart
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is about unraveling the layers of our lives, delving beneath the surface in order to better understand ourselves, our relationships, and our path. Author Susannah Conway uncovered this process following a tragedy--the sudden death of the man she loved. In sharing her journey of self-discovery first through her blog, then her online courses, and now in these pages, she reveals how grief reshaped her life and led her to reconnect with her creativity, make peace with her past, and learn to appreciate herself. This is a guidebook of sorts, a collection of thoughts and theories, each chapter culminating in a small creative exercise for the reader to reflect upon and apply to her own life. The author's signature dreamy Polaroid images are also included throughout. Conway reminds readers that they are not alone, that living mindfully is a process, and that unraveling is not about coming undone or losing control, but rather letting go in the best possible way. By untangling the knots that hold you back, unearthing the potential that's always been there and ditching the labels and should-haves you can let yourself be who you were always meant to be.

Discourses on Livy

Product : Discourses on Livy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Discourses on Livy" is the founding document of modern republicanism, and Harvey C. Mansfield and Nathan Tarcov have provided the definitive English translation of this classic work. Faithful to the original Italian text, properly attentive to Machiavelli's idiom and subtlety of thought, it is eminently readable. With a substantial introduction, extensive explanatory notes, a glossary of key words, and an annotated index, the "Discourses" reveals Machiavelli's radical vision of a new science of politics, a vision of "new modes and orders" that continue to shape the modern ethos. " Machiavelli] found in Livy the means to inspire scholars for five centuries. Within the "Discourses," often hidden and sometimes unintended by their author, lie the seeds of modern political thought. . . . Mansfield and Tarcov's] translation is careful and idiomatic."--Peter Stothard, "The Times" "Translated with painstaking accuracy--but also great readability."--"Weekly Standard" "A model of contemporary scholarship and a brave effort at Machiavelli translation that allows the great Florentine to speak in his own voice."--"Choice"

Xicotencatl: An Anonymous Historical Novel about the Events Leading Up to the Conquest of the Aztec Empire

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "This translation of Xicotencatl makes available to English-speaking readers a key text in the nineteenth-century history of Spanish American literature. . . . I am delighted that someone has seen fit to rescue this marvelous story of good and evil, with its still] pertinent discussion of political and personal morality." --Nancy Vogeley, Professor of Spanish, University of San Francisco As Spain's New World colonies fought for their independence in the early nineteenth century, an anonymous author looked back on the earlier struggle of native Americans against the Spanish conquistadores and penned this novel, Xicotencatl. Writing from a decidedly anti-Spanish perspective, the author describes the historical events that led to the march on Tenochtitlan and eventual conquest of the Aztec empire in 1519 by Hernan Cortes and his Indian allies, the Tlaxcalans. Xicotencatl stands out as a beautiful exposition of an idealized New World about to undergo the tremendous changes wrought by the Spanish Conquest. It was published in Philadelphia in 1826. In his introduction to this first English translation, Guillermo I. Castillo-Feliu discusses why the novel was published outside Latin America, its probable author, and his attitudes toward his Spanish and Indian characters, his debt to Spanish literature and culture, and the parallels that he draws between past and present struggles against Spanish domination in the Americas.

Mao

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Was Mao the first red emperor or the last great Marxist leader? Mao Zedong was held in awe by his people, seen by many as a supreme hero who had freed their country. He led a vast social revolution and made China a world power that competed with the Soviet Union as the leader of international socialism. Michael Lynch presents an engaging and thorough account of Mao's life and politics, making use of a wealth of primary and secondary sources. He locates Maoism in the broader context of twentieth-century Chinese history, discussing the development of the Chinese Communist Party, the creation of the People's Republic of China and the Cultural Revolution, and the part of Mao's China in the Cold War. Details of Mao's private life as well as his political and philosophical thought add to this diverse picture of the influential leader.

A Mathematical Primer for Social Statistics

Product : A Mathematical Primer for Social Statistics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A Mathematical Primer for Social Statistics: Beyond the introductory level, learning and effectively using statistical methods in the social sciences requires some knowledge of mathematics. It is, however, surprising how far one can go with a relatively modest mathematical background. The proposed monograph aims to provide that background, introducing the areas of mathematics that are most centrally important to applied social statistics: matrices, linear algebra, and vector geometry; basic differential and integral calculus, including multivariable and matrix calculus, and the application of calculus to optimization problems; and probability and estimation, including the basics of probability theory, discrete and continuous random variables, commonly encountered statistical distributions, principles of estimation, the method of maximum likelihood and the basics of Bayesian inference.It would be advantageous to cover all these topics in a single book.The expected readership includes advanced undergrads, graduate students, and researchers in the social sciences who wish to learn and use relatively advanced statistical methods, especially regression type of analysis, but whose mathematical preparation for this work is insufficient. There should be a potentially large market. The title should be able to stand alone or bundled together with our existing numbers in two ways: it could go together with many of the volumes on regression analysis, and it could also help fill the gap in foundation with our existing numbers on matrix algebra and calculus. I expect it will do better in the former role of bundling together with existing volumes on regression.

Ethnicity and Nationalism: Anthropological Perspectives

Product : Ethnicity and Nationalism: Anthropological Perspectives
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "Ethnicity and Nationalism," Thomas Hylland Eriksen demonstrates that far from being an immutable property of groups, ethnicity is a dynamic and shifting aspect of social relationships. Drawing on a wide range of classic and recent studies in anthropology and sociology, Eriksen examines the relationship between ethnicity, class, gender and nationhood, as well as current issues of racism, globalization and multiculturalism. Influential theories are presented and critically compared in a lucid and comprehensive manner. A core text for all students of social anthropology and related subjects, "Ethnicity and Nationalism" has been a leading introduction to the field since its original publication in 1993. New topics in this edition include cultural property rights, the role of genetics in the public understanding of identification, commercialisation of identity, and the significance of the internet.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Following orders from President Thomas Jefferson, Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set out from their wintering camp in Illinois in 1804 to search for a river passage to the Pacific Ocean. In this riveting account, editor Gary E. Moulton blends the narrative highlights of the Lewis and Clark journals so that the voices of the enlisted men and of Native peoples are heard alongside the words of the captains. All their triumphs and terrors are here--the thrill of seeing the vast herds of bison on the plains; the tensions and admiration in the first meetings with Indian peoples; Lewis's rapture at the stunning beauty of the Great Falls; the fear the captains felt when a devastating illness befell their Shoshone interpreter, Sacagawea; the ordeal of crossing the Continental Divide; the kidnapping and rescuing of Lewis's dog, Seaman; miserable days of cold and hunger; and Clark's joy at seeing the Pacific. The cultural differences between the corps and Native Americans make for living drama that at times provokes laughter but more often is poignant and, at least once, tragic.

Duty, Honor, Country: A History of West Point

Product : Duty, Honor, Country: A History of West Point
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This new paperback edition of Stephen E. Ambrose's highly regarded history of the United States Military Academy features the original foreword by Dwight D. Eisenhower and a new afterword by former West Point superintendent Andrew J. Goodpaster. "There have been many other histories of West Point, but this is the best... From this excellent book every American will find interest and take pride in this truly national institution that has played so great a part in the building of the country." -- Historical Times "The title of this first-rate account of the United States Military Academy is drawn from the Academy's motto... Ambrose] follows the long gray line through history, skillfully re-creating the administrations of West Point's outstanding superintendents (Sylvanus Thayer and Douglas MacArthur), telling some amusing anecdotes about cadets 'who simply refused to conform to the West Point mold' (James McNeill Whistler and Edgar Allan Poe)." -- New York Times Book Review "The conception of West Point, as Ambrose makes clear in his short history of the Military Academy, was immaculately Jeffersonian. It was a school to train engineers -- that most liberal, nonaristocratic, and socially useful branch of the military service -- not in order to create a corps d'A(c)lite but to provide the reservoir of military expertise which was needed if the militia ideal were to become a practical reality... Ambrose has told this story clearly and well; he is at his best in tying it to the larger context of American politics, social attitudes, and higher education." -- Journal of American History "A welcome addition to the growing literature on military education. Ambrose covers the whole history of West Point, from the first feeble beginnings under President Jefferson down to the present. He has carefully examined both the published and unpublished sources and has rounded out the basic data with numerous interviews." -- Journal of Higher Education

Fear of the Invisible

Product : Fear of the Invisible
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book takes its readers on a journey into the very heart of the hunt for viruses - to the key experiments originally performed to prove that these invisibly small particles are the cause of diseases previously blamed on toxins or bacteria and into the latest research. It sheds light on the extraordinary assumptions that underlay much of this research - and on the vaccines that developed from this. The author, an investigative journalist who has researched and produced investigative films for the BBC, American and Australian television, was asked by parents with children severely ill after vaccination, to discover if the medical authorities were hiding anything from them. She agreed, but had no idea how long this search would take. She expected at best to uncover a small degree of contamination. On the ensuing decade-long journey of discovery, she learnt it is not just the added mercury that we have to worry about. She discovered that the top government scientists admit to colleagues that vaccines are contaminated with viruses from chickens, humans and monkeys, with RNA and DNA fragments, with 'cellular degradation products', and possibly 'oncogenes and prions.' They report alarmingly that it is impossible to commercially purify vaccines. They express great concerns, but the public is not told despite the possible consequences for long-term public health. A recent US court decision has linked autism with vaccine contamination. The author cites her sources by name - and gives references and Internet links where they are available. I She reveals evidence that the World Health Organisation has discovered the MMR vaccine is contaminated with chicken leukosis virus, but has decided not totell the public of this, and to continue to make the vaccine with eggs from contaminated chickens. She reports US biowarfare researchers tried to create new agents to destroy our immune systems - and worked on a bacterium to make it a hospital superbug. Did they manage to create HIV? A senior professor told her that the vaccine program was so contaminated that HIV might well have spread though it without any need for military intervention. She set out to find the evidence to resolve this, and to learn how HIV apparently spread so far and fast. She needed to know more about this virus so went to the foundation research widely held today to have found HIV and proved it caused AIDS. She was then rocked to discover that this same research was investigated for scientific fraud for a five year period by powerful US scientific institutions and by Congress, . Why is this not widely known? She found their reports and discovered they found major errors in this research, some so serious that these made it impossible to repeat these experiments and thus to verify them She reveals the evidence unearthed - reproducing key documents so the reader can assess them for themselves. This is explosive material. In the final part of this book the author reports recent research that is

There's Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say

Product : There's Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Part memoir, part monologue, with a dash of startling honesty, "There's Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say" features biographies of legendary historical figures from which Paula Poundstone can't help digressing to tell her own story. Mining gold from the lives of Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Joan of Arc, and Beethoven, among others, the eccentric and utterly inimitable mind of Paula Poundstone dissects, observes, and comments on the successes and failures of her own life with surprising candor and spot-on comedic timing in this unique laugh-out-loud book. If you like Paula Poundstone's ironic and blindingly intelligent humor, you'll love this wryly observant, funny, and touching book. Paula Poundstone on . . . The sources of her self-esteem: "A couple of years ago I was reunited with a guy I knew in the fifth grade. He said, "All the other fifth-grade guys liked the pretty girls, but I liked you." It's hard to know if a guy is sincere when he lays it on that thick. The battle between fatigue and informed citizenship: I play a videotape of "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" every night, but sometimes I only get as far as the theme song (da da-da-da da-ah) before I fall asleep. Sometimes as soon as Margaret Warner says whether or not Jim Lehrer is on vacation I drift right off. Somehow just knowing he's well comforts me. The occult: I need to know exactly what day I'm gonna die so that I don't bother putting away leftovers the night before. TV's misplaced priorities: Someday in the midst of the State of the Union address they'll break in with, "We interrupt this program to bring you a little clip from Bewitched." Travel: In London I went to the queen's house. I went as a tourist--she didn't invite me so she could pick my brain: "What do you think of my face on the pound? Too serious?" Air-conditioning in Florida: If it were as cold outside in the winter as they make it inside in the summer, they'd put the heat on. It makes no sense. The scandal: The judge said I was the best probationer he ever had. Talk about proud. With a foreword by Mary Tyler Moore "From the Hardcover edition."

Description : Readers fell in love with Cannie Shapiro, the smart, sharp-tongued, bighearted heroine of "Good in Bed" who found her happy ending after her mother came out of the closet, her father fell out of her life, and her ex-boyfriend started chronicling their ex-sex life in the pages of a national magazine. Now Cannie's back. After her debut novel -- a fictionalized (and highly sexualized) version of her life -- became an overnight bestseller, she dropped out of the public eye and turned to writing science fiction under a pseudonym. She's happily married to the tall, charming diet doctor Peter Krushelevansky and has settled into a life that she finds wonderfully predictable -- knitting in the front row of her daughter Joy's drama rehearsals, volunteering at the library, and taking over-forty yoga classes with her best friend Samantha. As preparations for Joy's bat mitzvah begin, everything seems right in Cannie's world. Then Joy discovers the novel Cannie wrote years before and suddenly finds herself faced with what she thinks is the truth about her own conception -- the story her mother hid from her all her life. When Peter surprises his wife by saying he wants to have a baby, the family is forced to reconsider its history, its future, and what it means to be truly happy. Radiantly funny and disarmingly tender, with Weiner's whip-smart dialogue and sharp observations of modern life, "Certain Girls" is an unforgettable story about love, loss, and the enduring bonds of family.

Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Programming with Packages [With *]

Product : Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Programming with Packages [With *]
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Steven Feuerstein's first book, "Oracle PL/SQL Programming, has become the classic reference to PL/SQL, Oracle's procedural extension to its SQL language. His new book looks thoroughly at one especially advanced and powerful part of the PL/SQL language -- the package. The use of packages can dramatically improve your programming productivity and code quality, while preparing you for object-oriented development in Oracle technology. In this book, Feuerstein explains how to construct packages -- and how to build them the right way. His "best practices" for building packages will transform the way you write packages and help you get the most out of the powerful, but often poorly understood, PL/SQL language. Much more than a book, "Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Programming with Packages comes with a PC diskette containing a full-use software companion. Developed by Feuerstein, RevealNet's PL/Vision Lite is the first of its kind for PL/SQL developers: a library of thirty-plus PL/SQL packages. The packages solve a myriad of common programming problems and vastly accelerate the development of modular and maintainable applications. The packages provided in PL/Vision Lite fall into three categories: Building block packages: low-level development enhancers, including string parsers, a list manager, and an interface to PL/SQL tables.Developer utilities: programs that improve your PL/SQL development environment, including a code generator, a powerful substitute for SHOW ERRORS, and an online help delivery mechanism.Plug-and-play components: pieces of code that can be used as is in your own applications, including a high-level exception handler mechanism and a generic, reusable loggingmechanism. In addition to describing the details of these packages, this book explores why and how they were built the way they were. You'll come away with an increased appreciation of the PL/SQL language and the power of packages. Most importantly, you'll be ready and eager to put that power to use immediately in your own applications.

Description : Girls don't do that. Girls shouldn't do that. Girls can't do that. Not very long ago, that's exactly what many people said whenever a woman tried to play a sport or do anything athletic. Most people believed that women were too weak and delicate to play sports. Fortunately, not all women believed what they were told. Trude Ederle, Louise Stokes, Tidye Pickett, Julie Krone and Danica Patrick didn't. When these sports pioneers were told "Girls don't," they did. When they were told "Girls shouldn't," they asked "why not?" And when they were told "Girls can't," they showed girls most certainly can. This book tells the story of these pioneers in women's sports. Thanks to them, everyone knows now that girls can do anything they want.

Encountering Ecclesiastes: A Book for Our Time

Product : Encountering Ecclesiastes: A Book for Our Time
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Too often neglected or stigmatized as overly pessimistic, the book of Ecclesiastes speaks eloquently to the uncertainties and anxieties prevalent in today's world. James Limburg brings to life this ancient resource that still offers wisdom and hope to people in our probing, questioning twenty-first-century times. Drawing on years of careful study and classroom exposition, Limburg takes readers through this fascinating book systematically, pointing out connections to Jewish festivals and New Testament themes and incorporating interpretations by Martin Luther, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Harold Kushner. He guides readers through the contemporary existential themes that Ecclesiastes illuminates: the quest for meaning in life, the incompleteness of our knowledge, the place of work in human lives, and the need to discover God amid life's uncertainties. Limburg argues that, rather than a summons to flee the concerns of this world, Ecclesiastes is really a call to worldly involvement. Not a highly technical, verse-by-verse commentary but rather a fresh, relevant discussion arising from Limburg's extensive teaching experience, Limburg's "Encountering Ecclesiastes" will be ideal for students, church study groups, and any readers seeking to understand the timeless, questioning wisdom of Ecclesiastes.

Heresy: A History of Defending the Truth

Product : Heresy: A History of Defending the Truth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In recent years the distinction between heresy and orthodoxy has come under fire by those eager to reject the formal boundaries of sanctioned beliefs about God, Jesus, and the church. In a timely corrective to this trend, renowned church historian Alister McGrath argues that the categories of heresy and orthodoxy must be preserved. Remaining faithful to Jesus's mission and message is still the mandate of the church despite increasingly popular cries that traditional dogma is outdated and restricts individual freedom. Overturning misconceptions throughout the book, McGrath exposes: how many of the heretical beliefs and practices rejected by the church were actually more stringent and oppressive than rival orthodox claims. that many theological alternatives were rejected when the church had no power to enforce one view over another, long before Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire. In "Heresy," McGrath explains why no heresy has ever been eradicated--rival beliefs only go underground and resurface in different forms. McGrath presents a powerful, compassionate, and deeply attractive orthodoxy that will equip the church to meet the challenge from renewed forms of heresy today.

Description : Where do the roots of addictive behavior lie -- in our genes or in our environment, in our chemistry or in our character? "In the Craving Brain," Dr. Ronald Ruden asserts that the roots of addiction most defintetly do not lie in our character. Rather, they lie in a complex chain reaction that originates in an ancient survival mechanism in the brain. When this system is inappropriately activated, it drives the body to crave, sometimes with addictive behavior as the end result. In clear, straightforward language, Dr. Ruden outlines his remarkable successful treatment program which he believes can cure this problem. "The Craving Brain" offers crucial insights into the world of addiction.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : After 'Hit Man'The New York Times bestseller "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" documents John Perkins' extraordinary career as a globe-trotting economic hit man. Perkins' insider's view leads him to crisis of conscience--to the realization that he must devote himself to work which will foster a world-wide awareness of the sanctity of indigenous peoples, their cultures, and their environments. Perkins'books demonstrate how the age-old shamanic techniques of some of the world's most primitive peoples have sparked a revolution in modern concepts about healing, the subconscious, and the powers each of us has to alter individual and communal reality.Deep in the rain forests and high in the Andes of Ecuador, native shamans teach the age-old technique of dream change, a tradition that has kept the cultures of the Otavalans, Salasacans, and Shuar alive despite centuries of conquest. Now these shamans are turning their wisdom and power to the problem of curing a new kind of illness--that created by the industrial world's dream of dominating and exploiting nature. John Perkins tells the story of these remarkable shamans and of the U.S. medical doctors, psychologists, and scientists who have gone with him to learn the techniques of dream change. These shamanic teachings have sparked a revolution in modern concepts about healing, the subconscious, and the powers each of us has to alter individual and communal reality.

He gives a brief history of abortion legislation, then explores the issue from legal, moral, and Christian perspectives, presenting compelling reasons why Church leaders and Catholics should stop trying to overturn Roe v. Wade and reconsider the issue.

Citizen Somerville

Product : Citizen Somerville
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the early 1960's a bloody civil war broke out between the two powerful Irish Mob families in the Somerville Massachusetts neighborhood known as Winter Hill. Over sixty men were murdered, including the leader of the Winter Hill Gang, James "Buddy" McLean. The leadership of one of the most influential non-Italian crime organizations in the United States was inherited by his childhood friend, Howard T. "Howie" Winter. In CITIZEN SOMERVILLE the events during his tenure offer a true picture of an era in Boston's pre-Whitey Bulger history when the streets were protected by a close-knit group of Irish-Italian "businessmen." The son of one of Winter's closest friends, BOBBY MARTINI has laid his own history bare to depict a life of survival in the rough streets of Somerville, stopping just short of entering the Mob life. The death of Martini's two brothers as well as the murders and suicides of scores of others reveal the darker personal side of a small New England town. CITIZEN SOMERVILLE slices a layer deeper than a crime memoir by allowing a usually ostracized faction to speak - the women. After decades of silence, three strong and very different females lift the Mob veil and voice their own struggle to survive in Somerville's criminal circle. Often painfully poignant and yet frequently hilarious, CITIZEN SOMERVILLE is a microscopic view of a generation struggling to walk the moral tightrope between societal decency and the loyalty of criminality.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : If Rupert Murdoch and Sumner Redstone are so smart, why are their stocks long-term losers? We live in the age of big Media, with the celebrity moguls telling us that "content is king." But for all the excitement, glamour, drama, and publicity they produce, why can't these moguls and their companies manage to deliver better returns than you'd get from closing your eyes and throwing a dart? "The Curse of the Mogul" lays bare the inexcusable financial performance beneath big Media's false veneer of power. By rigorously examining individual media businesses, the authors reveal the difference between judging a company by how many times its CEO is seen in SunValley and by whether it generates consistently superior profits. The book is packed with enough sharp-edged data to bring the most high-flying, hot-air filled mogul balloon crashing down to earth.

Carney, an officer of the newly formed Massachusetts Fifty-fourth Regiment -- comprised entirely of African Americans -- led his soldiers over the ramparts of Fort Wagner, where Union soldiers charged the Confederates. As the soldiers fought, they gained strength from the stars and stripes of the American flag, Old Glory. It was Carney's vow to never let Old Glory touch the ground, and despite several gunshot wounds, he was able to rescue the flag from the fallen bearer. Carney held the flag high as a symbol that his regiment would never submit to the Confederacy.

The Fasting Edge

Product : The Fasting Edge
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : There is nothing more powerful than fasting. Though it lasts for a short season, it brings long-term effects and blessings. This book is focused on the power of fasting to help you regain your edge when the circumstances of life deplete your spiritual energy and dull your spiritual sharpness. Best-selling author Jentezen Franklin sets the focus for the book by using the story of the student prophet in 2 Kings 6 who lost his ax head while working. The ax head flew off the ax and landed in a dirty, murky pond and sank to the bottom. Through this biblical example, Franklin will give us the steps to regaining our edge, which include: 1. Make up your mind to admit it is lost.2. Confess that you have lost it.3. Confide your loss to someone in a spiritual position to help.4. Go the river (point of losing it).5. Watch the power of God make your lost edge swim to the top of the murky river.6. Pick up the ax and put it back on the ax pole (our part in regaining our edge; God will not do it all).

Negro League Baseball: The Rise and Ruin of a Black Institution

Product : Negro League Baseball: The Rise and Ruin of a Black Institution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The story of black professional baseball provides a remarkable perspective on several major themes in modern African American history: the initial black response to segregation, the subsequent struggle to establish successful separate enterprises, and the later movement toward integration. Baseball functioned as a critical component in the separate economy catering to black consumers in the urban centers of the North and South. While most black businesses struggled to survive from year to year, professional baseball teams and leagues operated for decades, representing a major achievement in black enterprise and institution building. "Negro League Baseball: The Rise and Ruin of a Black Institution" presents the extraordinary history of a great African American achievement, from its lowest ebb during the Depression, through its golden age and World War II, until its gradual disappearance during the early years of the civil rights era. Faced with only a limited amount of correspondence and documents, Lanctot consulted virtually every sports page of every black newspaper located in a league city. He then conducted interviews with former players and scrutinized existing financial, court, and federal records. Through his efforts, Lanctot has painstakingly reconstructed the institutional history of black professional baseball, locating the players, teams, owners, and fans in the wider context of the league's administration. In addition, he provides valuable insight into the changing attitudes of African Americans toward the need for separate institutions.

There Was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra

Product : There Was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "From the legendary author of "Things Fall Apart" comes a longawaited memoir about coming of age with a fragile new nation, then watching it torn asunder in a tragic civil war" The defining experience of Chinua Achebe's life was the Nigerian civil war, also known as the Biafran War, of 1967-1970. The conflict was infamous for its savage impact on the Biafran people, Chinua Achebe's people, many of whom were starved to death after the Nigerian government blockaded their borders. By then, Chinua Achebe was already a world-renowned novelist, with a young family to protect. He took the Biafran side in the conflict and served his government as a roving cultural ambassador, from which vantage he absorbed the war's full horror. Immediately after, Achebe took refuge in an academic post in the United States, and for more than forty years he has maintained a considered silence on the events of those terrible years, addressing them only obliquely through his poetry. Now, decades in the making, comes a towering reckoning with one of modern Africa's most fateful events, from a writer whose words and courage have left an enduring stamp on world literature. Achebe masterfully relates his experience, bothas he lived it and how he has come to understand it. He begins his story with Nigeria's birth pangs and the story of his own upbringing as a man and as a writer so that we might come to understand the country's promise, which turned to horror when the hot winds of hatred began to stir. To read "There Was a Country" is to be powerfully reminded that artists have a particular obligation, especially during a time of war. All writers, Achebe argues, should be committed writers--they should speak for their history, their beliefs, and their people. Marrying history and memoir, poetry and prose, "There Was a Country "is a distillation of vivid firsthand observation and forty years of research and reflection. Wise, humane, and authoritative, it will stand as definitive and reinforce Achebe's place as one of the most vital literary and moral voices of our age.

Description : "The Predicament of Culture" is a critical ethnography of the West in its changing relations with other societies. Analyzing cultural practices such as anthropology, travel writing, collecting, and museum displays of tribal art, Clifford shows authoritative accounts of other ways of life to be contingent fictions, now actively contested in postcolonial contexts. His critique raises questions of global significance: Who has the authority to speak for any group's identity and authenticity? What are the essential elements and boundaries of a culture? How do self and "the other" clash in the encounters of ethnography, travel, and modern interethnic relations? In discussions of ethnography, surrealism, museums, and emergent tribal arts, Clifford probes the late-twentieth century predicament of living simultaneously within, between, and after culture.

This "entertaining and enchanting" work (Washington Post Book World) chronicles how Watson's fascination grew into a lifelong quest to understand the nature and behavior of this impressive creature. From that moment on, Watson's fascination grew into a lifelong obsession with understanding the nature and behavior of this impressive creature. Around the world, the elephant-at once a symbol of spiritual power and physical endurance-has been worshipped as a god and hunted for sport. "Watson's insights and speculations are dazzling, but what lends them power is his extraordinary knowledge of evolutionary biology and animal behavior, ethnography and South African history" (Wade Davis, National Geographic Society). "Like a shaman, Watson conjures up the spirit of the massive beast" (Publishers Weekly), documents the animal's wide-ranging capabilities to remember and to mourn, and reminds us of its rich mythic origins, its evolution, and its devastation in recent history. Part meditation on an elusive animal, part evocation of the power of place, Elephantoms presents an alluring mix of the mysteries of nature and the wonders of childhood.

Weaving the history of science and technology with the fortunes of war and the stories of men and women whose discoveries brought both benefits and destruction to the world, "Hitleras Scientists" raises questions that are still urgent today. As science becomes embroiled in new generations of weapons of mass destruction and the war against terrorism, as advances in biotechnology outstrip traditional ethics, this powerful account of Nazi science forms a crucial commentary on the ethical role of science.

Product : Boot: An LAPD Officer's Rookie Year in South Central Los Angeles
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Rodney King incident and the OJ Simpson trial brought the LAPD national notoriety as a police force out of synch with the city it polices. But is this force of 9,000 men and women really made up of mavericks and rogues? In this revised edition of a timeless true crime classic, rookie police officer William Dunn takes you inside that other LAPD, one where hard working cops battle for the average citizen while dodging gangsters' bullets. Set during one of the city's most turbulent years in the middle of one of its most impoverished, and violent, neighborhoods, Los Angeles as seen through the eyes of rookie Officer Dunn is a potentially volatile, constantly changing landscape. To be a good cop, and survive the experience, Dunn quickly learns from some unforgettable teachers how to lay down the law on the streets. Dunn's dispatches from the frontlines of LA are dramatic, humorous and touching. Every day there is another drive-by shooting, high speed chase or just downright bizarre situation to be dealt with. Dunn offers some of the most compelling insights into the challenges facing a young street cop - and the way we keep peace in America's most dangerous policing districts. This edition also includes a "Guide for the Law Enforcement Candidate," including insight into the police application process, as well as a sample test to help those interested in a career in law enforcement prepare for the journey.
