Cyropaedia, Volume II: Books 5-8

Product : Cyropaedia, Volume II: Books 5-8
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Xenophon (ca. 430 to ca. 354 BCE) was a wealthy Athenian and friend of Socrates. He left Athens in 401 and joined an expedition including ten thousand Greeks led by the Persian governor Cyrus against the Persian king. After the defeat of Cyrus, it fell to Xenophon to lead the Greeks from the gates of Babylon back to the coast through inhospitable lands. Later he wrote the famous vivid account of this 'March Up-Country' ("Anabasis"); but meanwhile he entered service under the Spartans against the Persian king, married happily, and joined the staff of the Spartan king, Agesilaus. But Athens was at war with Sparta in 394 and so exiled Xenophon. The Spartans gave him an estate near Elis where he lived for years writing and hunting and educating his sons. Reconciled to Sparta, Athens restored Xenophon to honour but he preferred to retire to Corinth. Xenophon's "Anabasis" is a true story of remarkable adventures. "Hellenica, " a history of Greek affairs from 411 to 362, begins as a continuation of Thucydides' account. There are four works on Socrates (collected in Volume IV of the Loeb Xenophon edition). In "Memorabilia" Xenophon adds to Plato's picture of Socrates from a different viewpoint. The "Apology" is an interesting complement to Plato's account of Socrates' defense at his trial. Xenophon's "Symposium" portrays a dinner party at which Socrates speaks of love; and "Oeconomicus" has him giving advice on household management and married life. "Cyropaedia, " a historical romance on the education of Cyrus (the Elder), reflects Xenophon's ideas about rulers and government; the Loeb edition is in two volumes. We also have his "Hiero, " a dialogue on government; "Agesilaus, " in praise of that king; "Constitution of Lacedaemon" (on the Spartan system); "Ways and Means" (on the finances of Athens); "Manual for a Cavalry Commander;" a good manual of "Horsemanship;" and a lively "Hunting with Hounds. The Constitution of the Athenians, " though clearly not by Xenophon, is an interesting document on politics at Athens. These eight books are collected in the last of the seven volumes of the Loeb Classical Library edition of Xenophon.

Turning the World Upside Down: The Serach for Global Health in the 21st Century

Product : Turning the World Upside Down: The Serach for Global Health in the 21st Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The most striking thing about health in the 21st Century is that the whole world is now so interconnected and so interdependent. This interdependence is changing the way we see health, creating a new global perspective and will affect the way we need to act. Based on the author's journey from running the largest health system in the world to working in some of the poorest countries and drawing on his experiences to explore new ideas and innovations from around the world, Turning the World Upside Down is a search for understanding that helps us to see how Western Scientific Medicine, which has served us so well for us in the 20th Century, needs to adapt and evolve to cope with the demands of the 21st Century. It sets out a new vision and concludes by describing the actions we need to take to accelerate the change.

Gustav Klimt: Drawings & Watercolors

Product : Gustav Klimt: Drawings & Watercolors
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The best of Klimt's drawings and watercolors, beautifully reproduced in full color. There is no doubt about Gustav Klimt's greatness as a draftsman. Remarkable above all is the intensely sensual mood that he establishes in his limpid, fluid drawings and watercolors: the pencil or crayon line with which his subjects are described explores and caresses as though the act of drawing was itself a seduction. Klimt's drawings are often highly erotic and explicit, many to such an extent that they have rarely been reproduced. This has made for an unbalanced representation of his work as a draftsman, and a comprehensive survey of his graphic output is long overdue. Rainer Metzger, a noted art historian, has brought together hundreds of Klimt's drawings and watercolors in a way that enriches our knowledge of the artist and enhances the visual impact of his oeuvre. Klimt's drawings and studies, and his elegantly direct and dangerously intoxicating preparatory sketches, reveal the underlying impetus for and structure of his elaborate canvases. 307 color illustrations.

Developing Story Ideas

Product : Developing Story Ideas
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Developing Story Ideas offers students and other young artists a spectrum of resources and a structure of writing practice so that anyone can quickly and reliably generate a wide variety of stories. It does so stressing the importance of understanding oneself and creating collaboratively. This book provides exercises and projects to help each person draw an artistic self-profile to summarize what he or she most needs to investigate in their creative work. It teaches narrative structure and critical language, and asserts that giving and taking criticism is an essential part of the creative process. It treats fiction and non-fiction as highly related - for fiction needs its roots in the real world, while documentary needs narrative drive and structure to impose meaning on its reality. All the assignments are illustrated with examples of student work and/or pieces drawn from classic works of literature and film, each followed by meaningful and sensitive commentary from the author. Throughout the book the author has placed boxed text to emphasize information that is critical to the success of a particular writing project or to the creative process generally. Readers will experience what education has come to recognize as particularly effective: hands-on creative projects, an emphasis on self-actualization, and working not as an embattled individual competing for recognition, but as part of a learning community. In this atmosphere people naturally form the friendships, creative partnerships, and teams that make filmmaking gratifying and productive. Exercises and projects help writers find what they need to investigate in their creative work Examines fiction and non-fictionwriting, narrative structure and critical language Boxed text and examples of student work illustrate each lesson

Product : Living Loaded: Tales of Sex, Salvation, and the Pursuit of the Never-Ending Happy Hour
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many people drink, few do it professionally. My name is Dan Dunn and I consume alcohol for a living. That's right. I get paid to run around boozing, carousing, and getting into all manner of trouble, all in the name of covering the "adult beverage beat" for one of the most iconic brands on the planet, Playboy. I hereby invite you to join me, as I conduct "revealing" hotel room interviews with porn stars in LA; go Zip Cat racing in Scotland with Stifler from American Pie; turn the notoriously posh Pebble Peach Wine Tournament into the opportunity for a 3-day bender (thank God for my trusty voice recorder); enjoy whiskey-fueled romantic encounters in alleyways behind East Village watering holes; get forcibly removed from a boxing match at a Vegas casino (thanks to an unfortunate misunderstanding involving lots of liquor, and the flag of Cuba); get dumped by my stripper/med student girlfriend (mid-lap dance, no less) simply for not being "husband material;" wake up naked on a big-shot Hollywood producer's living room floor; and learn, the hard way, why NEVER to order an Irish car bomb in a Dublin pub. Along the way, I'll share with you the hard-won wisdom from a life lived loaded, including how to amass a kick-ass collection of bar memorabilia, to how to be Yankee and survive bars in the sticks, to how to maintain the perfect buzz during air travel. And for those of you really serious about cocktails, I've even included 16 original recipes created "just for this book "by the world's best-known practitioners of the mixocological arts. You can thank me later. A bawdy barroom confessional that leaves no shot glass un-shot, no beer un-chugged, no potential paramour un-hit-upon, this is the most entertaining and honest book about the Drinking Life ever written. At least, ever written by me.

The Hidden Jesus: A New Life

Product : The Hidden Jesus: A New Life
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Hidden Jesus presents an extraordinary vision of Jesus Christ that remained hidden to his contemporaries and most of us today. Donald Spoto, the former monk and New Testament scholar who in recent years has written some of the most highly praised biographies of world-class celebrities, returns to his roots with this remarkable and deeply insightful portrait of the man Nazareth and the surprising message of His gospels. Addressing himself to a wide spectrum of modern readers, Spoto has written both a revolutionary and an intensely spiritual work. Controversial in its assessments, and particularly in its examination of standard doctrinal theology, The Hidden Jesus demonstrates that: -- Two New Testament passages on the the virginal conception should not be literally understood, and Jesus was not an only child, but the eldest of seven children -- Portions of the New Testament are anti-Semitic and that bias is certainly not part of revealed truth -- Sexual matters should not be seen as the principal gauge of morality, since Jesus had greater concerns, and even counted prostitutes among his closest friends -- There is no legitimate barrier to women being priests -- The New Testament does not say that marriages cannot be broken, but rather that marriages should not be broken -- One cannot be a true follower of Jesus and endorse capital punishment -- Jesus placed the birth in Bethlehem in order to relate Jesus directly to King David

Popular Psychology: An Encyclopedia

Product : Popular Psychology: An Encyclopedia
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A lot of what is marketed to the public as psychology is actually quite unscientific. Attempting to counteract the tide of misinformation about what psychology really is, this book is a concise guide for anyone seeking to understand the true scientific nature of psychology. Self-help books; television specials; and articles in the popular press all serve to obscure the true intellectual and scientific premises on which the field of psychology is based. The serious work of the great psychological thinkers and schools of psychological thought is lost to the average person. High school and college students as well as the interested lay reader will want to consult this work to understand what is good in the popular presentation of psychology and what is unworthy of serious attention. A unique and especially helful feature ofPopular Psychology: An Encyclopedia is the Guide to Related Topics. Major topic sections list the individual entries pertinent to that idea. For example, major sections include Biological Bases of Behavior; Drugs and Chemicals; Popular "Gurus" and Movements; Pseudoscience; Psychological Theories and Ideas; Treatments. There are 121 entries covering such subjects as: acupuncture; alien abduction; aromatherapy; birth order; brainwashing; chemical imbalance; drpressants; Down's Syndrome; emotional intelligence; facilitated communication; Howard Gardner; gingko biloba; insanity defense; intelligence; kava; learning disability; Dr. Phil; mood disorders; Mozart Effect; nervous breakdown; parenting styles; post-traumatic stress disorder; psychiatry; seasonal affective disorder; sleep and dreaming; Tourette Syndrome. Ideas and persons familiar to the general reader or to the high school and college student are discussed in an engaging yet knowledgeable style. A general bibliography as well as further reading following each entry and a complete index make this accessible and informative work a useful addition to any library.

Description : A rookie paramedic pulls a young woman alive from her totaled car, a first rescue that begins a lifelong tangle of love and wreckage. Sheila Arsenault is a gorgeous enigma--streetwise and tough-talking, with haunted eyes, fierce desires, and a never-look-back determination. Peter Webster, as straight an arrow as they come, falls for her instantly and entirely. Soon Sheila and Peter are embroiled in an intense love affair, married, and parents to a baby daughter. Like the crash that brought them together, it all happened so fast. Can you ever really save another person? Eighteen years later, Sheila is long gone and Peter is raising their daughter, Rowan, alone. But Rowan is veering dangerously off track, and for the first time in their ordered existence together, Webster fears for her future. His work shows him daily every danger the world contains, how wrong everything can go in a second. All the love a father can give a daughter is suddenly not enough. Sheila's sudden return may be a godsend--or it may be exactly the wrong moment for a lifetime of questions and anger and longing to surface anew. What tore a young family apart? Is there even worse damage ahead? The questions lifted up in Anita Shreve's utterly enthralling new novel are deep and lasting, and this is a novel that could only have been written by a master of the human heart.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Best known as the longtime writer of the Mathematical Games column for "Scientific American"--which introduced generations of readers to the joys of recreational mathematics--Martin Gardner has for decades pursued a parallel career as a devastatingly effective debunker of what he once famously dubbed "fads and fallacies in the name of science." It is mainly in this latter role that he is onstage in this collection of choice essays. "When You Were a Tadpole and I Was a Fish" takes aim at a gallery of amusing targets, ranging from Ann Coulter's qualifications as an evolutionary biologist to the logical fallacies of precognition and extrasensory perception, from Santa Claus to "The Wizard of Oz," from mutilated chessboards to the little-known "one-poem poet" Langdon Smith (the original author of this volume's title line). The writings assembled here fall naturally into seven broad categories: Science, Bogus Science, Mathematics, Logic, Literature, Religion and Philosophy, and Politics. Under each heading, Gardner displays an awesome level of erudition combined with a wicked sense of humor.

Machine Beauty: Elegance and the Heart of Computing

Product : Machine Beauty: Elegance and the Heart of Computing
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When something works well, you can feel it; there is a sense of rightness to it. We call that rightness beauty, and it ought to be the single most important component of design.This recognition is at the heart of David Gelernter's witty argued essay, Machine Beauty, which defines beauty as an inspired mating of simplicity and power. You can see it in a Bauhaus chair, the Hoover Dam, or an Emerson radio circa 1930. In contrast, too many contemporary technologists run out of ideas and resort to gimmicks and features; they are rarely capable of real, structural ingenuity.Nowhere is this more evident than in the world of computers. You don't have to look far to see how oblivious most computer technologists are to the idea of beauty. Just look at how ugly your computer cabinet is, how unwieldy and out of sync it feels with the manner and speed with which you process thought.The best designers, however, are obsessed with beauty. Both hardware and software should afford us the greatest opportunity to achieve deep beauty, the kind of beauty that happens when many types of loveliness reinforce one another, when design expresses an underlying technology, a machine logic. Program software ought to be transparent; it should engage what Gelernter calls "a thought-amplifying feedback loop," a creative symbiosis with its user. These principles, beautiful in themselves, will set the stage for the next technological revolution, in which the pursuit of elegance will lead to extraordinary innovations."Machine Beauty" will delight Gelernter's growing audience, fans of his provocative and biting journalism. Anyone who manufactures, designs, or uses computers will be galvanized by his cogent arguments andtantalizing glimpse of a bright future, where beautiful technology abounds.

Description : Maeve Binchy follows the enormous success of "Scarlet Feather" with a new book, "Quentins," that delivers the hallmark storytelling that has kept her millions of fans happy for more than twenty years. Is it possible to tell the story of a generation and a city through the history of a restaurant? Ella Brady thinks so. She wants to film a documentary about Quentins that will capture the spirit of Dublin from the 1970s to the present day. After all, the restaurant saw the people of a city become more confident in everything, from their lifestyles to the food that they chose to eat. And Quentins has a thousand stories to tell: tales of love, of betrayal, of revenge; of times when it looked ready for success and of times when it seemed as if it must close in failure. In Maeve Binchy's magical new book you will meet new friends and old. The twins from "Scarlet Feather," "Signora from Evening Class," and "Ria from Tara Road" all drop by, as do a host of new friends-Mon, the ever-cheerful Australian waitress, and Blouse Brennan, whose simplicity disguises a sharp mind and a heart of gold. Quentins is presided over by the apparently unflappable Patrick and Brenda Brennan, whose efforts have made the place a legend in the life of Dubliners and visitors alike. But even the Brennans have a story, and a problem, that is hidden from the public gaze. As Ella uncovers more and more of what has gone on at Quentins, she begins to question the wisdom of capturing it all in a documentary. Are there some stories that are too sacred to be told, some secrets that must be kept? By getting to know the people that pass through the doors of Quentins, Ella has finally gotten to know herself.

Baffled, angry, and still feeling guilty for the way he treated Chloe those final weeks, Ben now lives behind the protective walls of severed relationships and a rigid work routine.

Repetition

Description : The first novel in twenty years from France's master of the nouveau roman is a triumphant accomplishment. Reminiscent of Orson Welles's "The Third Man, Repetition is an atmospheric spy novel of violence, mystery, and tricks of the eye, set in a bombed-out 1949 Berlin. Henri Robin, a special agent of the French secret service, arrives in the ruined city and feels linked to it by a vague and recurrent memory. There is a shooting, a kidnapping, druggings, encounters with pimps and teenage whores, police interrogations, even torture. Bits and pieces of the Oedipus story resonate through the book's elegant labyrinth as Robin slowly senses that he was in Berlin before--as a child, with his mother, perhaps looking for his father. "Repetition proves thrillingly true "The New York Times's proclamation that "I doubt that fiction as art can any longer be seriously discussed without Robbe-Grillet."

Description : Life in turn-of-the-century Newton seemed sweet and simple, especially for young Abbie Sayles and her dear friend, Dell Bronson. Yet life could be complicated in a social system where privileged ladies were expected to socialize during the week only with other ladies, then worship on Sunday in the same pews as their hired help. Gentle, pure-hearted Abbie and spirited Dell took no stock in class snobbery, but the new minister in town did. And when this self-absorbed man arrived at Regent Street Church with his haughty and childish wife, he had no time for the humbler members of his flock. Soon people were wondering how much of the man's faith was genuine. Dell, who shared a painful past with the minister, had an idea. But Someone else knew the whole truth, and He would leave no stone unturned to reclaim His own. Heartwarming stories of faith and love by Grace Livingston Hill's aunt--Isabella Alden. Each book is similar in style and tone to Hill's and is set in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

But Thomas turned out to be different from what she thought...and then he turned up dead. And if that wasn't twisted enough, Reed's new boyfriend, Josh Hollis, was arrested for Thomas's murder. Now everyone is back to worrying about the regular stuff, like how to sneak to the boys' dorms at night, whether two-ply cashmere is warm enough for fall, and whether to fly to London or Barcelona for Thanksgiving break. Everyone except for Reed. Reed is convinced that Josh is innocent, which means the killer is still out there. Now it's up to Reed to uncover the truth.

The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World

Product : The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, in his fourteenth year as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan took part in a very quiet collective effort to ensure that America didn't experience an economic meltdown, taking the rest of the world with it. There was good reason to fear the worst: the stock market crash of October 1987, his first major crisis as Federal Reserve Chairman, coming just weeks after he assumed control, had come much closer than is even today generally known to freezing the financial system and triggering a genuine financial panic. But the most remarkable thing that happened to the economy after 9/11 was...nothing. What in an earlier day would have meant a crippling shock to the system was absorbed astonishingly quickly. After 9/11 Alan Greenspan knew, if he needed any further reinforcement, that we're living in a new world - the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-directing, and fast-changing than it was even 20 years ago. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. "The Age of Turbulence" is Alan Greenspan's incomparable reckoning with the nature of this new world - how we got here, what we're living through, and what lies over the horizon, for good and for ill-channeled through his own experiences working in the command room of the global economy for longer and with greater effect than any other single living figure. He begins his account on that September 11th morning, but then leaps back to his childhood, and follows the arc of his remarkable life's journey through to his more than 18-year tenure as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, from 1987 to 2006, during a time of transforming change. Alan Greenspan shares the story of his life first simply with an eye toward doing justice to the extraordinary amount of history he has experienced and shaped. But his other goal is to draw readers along the same learning curve he followed, so they accrue a grasp of his own understanding of the underlying dynamics that drive world events. In the second half of the book, having brought us to the present and armed us with the conceptual tools to follow him forward, Dr. Greenspan embarks on a magnificent tour de horizon of the global economy. He reveals the universals of economic growth, delves into the specific facts on the ground in each of the major countries and regions of the world, and explains what the trend-lines of globalization are from here. The distillation of a life's worth of wisdom and insight into an elegant expression of a coherent worldview, "The Age of Turbulence" will stand as Alan Greenspan's personal and intellectual legacy.

Description : "It's a big, big world It's easy to get lost in it..." --Justin Bieber, "Up" I love those lines in the lyrics. Sometimes I feel like that's what everyone's expecting. My world got very big, very fast, and a lot of people expect me to get lost in it. I grew up in a small town in Canada. I taught myself to sing in front of my bedroom mirror and to play guitar on a hand-me-down. My mom posted my first videos on YouTube. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I'd sell millions of records, sing for the president of the United States and sell out a massive arena tour. So no, I'm not lost. Not at all. If anything, onstage in front of my fans, I'm home. I'm found. And that's what this book is about: my journey, from singing and busking on the sidewalk in Stratford, Ontario, to performing and showing my appreciation to millions of fans all over the world for making this dream a reality. My music and lyrics give a glimpse of what's in my heart, but I think this book is a window into my world. In here are hundreds of pictures of me that no one's ever seen before, and I'll tell you about who I was before I joined forces with Scooter Braun and Usher and got a record deal, and who I've become since I've been blessed with the opportunity to share my music with the world. This is my gift to you, the fans who've supported and been with me on this amazing journey every step of the way.

Description : "The Amazing Foot Race of 1921" chronicles the adventures and celebrates the spirit of five extraordinary individuals (four men and one woman) who competed in a gruelling 3,645-mile foot race from Halifax to Vancouver, with a brief pass through New England. The five included a father and son, both back from the war, a husband and wife team and one lone hiker, the handsome Charles Burkman, the favorite to win the race. The race itself started in the dead of winter, in January. The world was reeling from post war readjustment, and stunts and competitions were the amusements of the day. Following the iron rails of the CPR, the hikers faced snowstorms, bears, wolves and hunger. When they reached towns, they were hailed as heroes, showered with gifts and given feasts fit for royalty. Throughout the race bands played, crowds cheered, and everyone purchased 10-cent postcards of the hikers as they trudged through town after town. On June 14, 1922, the irrepressible Jennie Dill and her husband Frank arrived in Vancouver to claim the win.

Description : Children are sometimes anxious about new experiences and they worry about failing. Thoughts or scripts such as ?I can?t? can restrict healthy play and learning. This book is designed to help young children develop constructive alternatives to unnecessary ?worry? thoughts. In this story, Fuzzy the Little Sheep helps his anxious sister Lizzy attempt different activities and test herself in gentle, realistic ways. Her fears are shown in ways that the young child can relate to. Lizzy is shy and afraid of failing or making mistakes, so she refuses to play and try new things. Fuzzy devises a plan whereby she gets to add a new stone to a rock pile every time she tries something new. She starts out small, but eventually tries more and more things as she gets excited by the growing rock pile and realizes how much fun she is having in her play. She is pleased to master new things and becomes aware of changes in her feelings. Coping strategies are shown using humorous imagery, relaxation techniques, and self-soothing scripts. Gradually increasing challenges are reinforced by visual evidence (the growing rock pile) and positive consequences.

Product : Making Prayer Real: Leading Jewish Spiritual Voices on Why Prayer Is Difficult and What to Do about It
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : More and more Jews are seeking religious meaning in their lives, in nature, in study groups, in community events and service projects anywhere, as long as it's not in a synagogue. Making Prayer Real is a no-holds-barred look at why so many find synagogue sanctuary at best difficult, and at worst, meaningless and boring and how to make them more satisfying. Putting prayer before prayerbook, Making Prayer Real offers a new and different response to the challenges of Jewish prayer. Drawing from over thirty interviews with Jewish spiritual leaders from all denominations, as well as their "best prayer practices," it entices and inspires the reader to become a "prayer person," one who engages in prayer to play the heart-strings of the soul. Original essays from Jewish spiritual leaders address the efficacy of prayer: how prayer changes us and how to discern a response from God. Author Rabbi Mike Comins then guides the reader in cultivating their own personal prayer.

Collision Course: The Strange Convergence of Affirmative Action and Immigration Policy in America

Product : Collision Course: The Strange Convergence of Affirmative Action and Immigration Policy in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 were passed, they were seen as triumphs of liberal reform applauded by the majority of Americans. But today, as Hugh Graham shows in Collision Course, affirmative action is foundering in the great waves of immigration from Asia and Latin America, leading to direct conflict for jobs, housing, education, and government preference programs. How did two such well-intended laws come to loggerheads? Graham argues that a sea change occurred in American political life in the late 1960s, when a system of split government--one party holding the White House, the other holding Congress--divided authority and enhanced the ability of interest groups to win expanded benefits. In civil rights, this led to a shift from nondiscrimination to the race-conscious remedies of hard affirmative action. In immigration, it led to a surge that by 2000 had brought 35 million immigrants to America, 26 million of them Asian or Latin American and therefore eligible, as "official minorities," for affirmative action preferences. The policies collided when employers, acting under affirmative action plans, hired millions of immigrants while leaving high unemployment among inner-city blacks. Affirmative action for immigrants stirred wide resentment and drew new attention to policy contradictions. Graham sees a troubled future for both programs. As the economy weakens and antiterrorist border controls tighten, the competition for jobs will intensify pressure on affirmative action and invite new restrictions on immigration. Graham's insightful interpretation of the unintended consequences of these policies is original and controversial. A short, focused, and even-handed narrative, it illuminates many of the issues that vex the United States today.

Perelandra

Product : Perelandra
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Written during the dark hours immediately before and during the Second World War, C. S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which "Perelandra" is the second volume, stands alongside such works as Albert Camus's "The Plague" and George Orwell's "1984" as a timely parable that has become timeless, beloved by succeeding generations as much for the sheer wonder of its storytelling as for the significance of the moral concerns. For the trilogy's central figure, C. S. Lewis created perhaps the most memorable character of his career, the brilliant, clear-eyed, and fiercely brave philologist Dr. Elwin Ransom. Appropriately, Lewis modeled Dr. Ransom after his dear friend J. R. R. Tolkien, for in the scope of its imaginative achievement and the totality of its vision of not one but two imaginary worlds, the Space Trilogy is rivaled in this century only by Tolkien's trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Readers who fall in love with Lewis's fantasy series The Chronicles of Namia as children unfailingly cherish his Space Trilogy as adults; it, too, brings to life strange and magical realms in which epic battles are fought between the forces of light and those of darkness. But in the many layers of its allegory, and the sophistication and piercing brilliance of its insights into the human condition, it occupies a place among the English language's most extraordinary works for any age, and for all time. In "Perelandra, " Dr. Ransom is recruited by the denizens of Malacandra, befriended in "Out of the Silent Planet, " to rescue the edenic planet Perelandra and its peace-loving populace from a terrible threat: a malevolent being from another world who strives to create a new world order, and who must destroy an old and beautiful civilization to do so.

Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York's Master Builder and Transformed the American City

Product : Wrestling with Moses: How Jane Jacobs Took on New York's Master Builder and Transformed the American City
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : To a young Jane Jacobs, Greenwich Village, with its winding cobblestone streets and diverse makeup, was everything a city neighborhood should be. The activist, writer, and mother of three grew so fond of her bustling community that it became a touchstone for her landmark book "The Death and Life of Great American Cities." But consummate power broker Robert Moses, the father of many of New York's most monumental development projects, saw things differently: neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village were badly in need of "urban renewal." Notorious for exacting enormous human costs, Moses's plans had never before been halted-not by governors, mayors, or FDR himself, and certainly not by a housewife from Scranton. The epic rivalry of Jacobs and Moses, played out amid the struggle for the soul of a city, is one of the most dramatic and consequential in modern American history. In Wrestling with Moses, acclaimed reporter and urban planning policy expert Anthony Flint recounts this thrilling David-and-Goliath story, the legacy of which echoes through our society today. The first ordinary citizens to stand up to government plans for their city, Jacobs and her colleagues began a nationwide movement to reclaim cities for the benefit of their residents. Time and again, Jacobs marshaled popular support and political power against Moses, whether to block traffic through her beloved Washington Square Park or to prevent the construction of the Lower Manhattan Expressway, a ten-lane elevated superhighway that would have destroyed centuries-old streetscapes and displaced thousands of families and businesses. Like "A Civil Action" before it, Wrestling with Moses is the tale of a local battle with far-ranging significance. By confronting Moses and his vision, Jacobs forever changed the way Americans understood the city, and inspired citizens across the country to protest destructive projects in their own communities. Her story reminds us of the power we have as individuals to confront and defy reckless authority.

On Liberty: and, Utilitarianism

Product : On Liberty: and, Utilitarianism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On Liberty (1859) is a philosophical work by British philosopher John Stuart Mill. It was a radical work to the Victorian readers of the time because it supported individuals' moral and economic freedom from the state.Perhaps the most memorable point made by Mill in this work, and his basis for liberty, is that "over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign." Mill is compelled to make this assertion in opposition to what he calls the "tyranny of the majority," wherein through control of etiquette and morality, society is an unelected power that can do horrific things. Mill's work could be considered a reaction to this social control by the majority and his advocacy of individual decision-making over the self. The famous Harm Principle, or the principle of liberty, is also articulated in this work: people can do anything they like as long as it does not harm others. All branches of liberalism-as well as other political ideologies-consider this to be one of their core principles. However, they often disagree on what exactly constitutes harm. (wikipedia.org)

Description : The esteemed English critic Q. D. Leavis declared Margaret Oliphant's heroine Lucilla to be the "missing link" in nineteenth-century literature between Jane Austen's Emma and George Eliot's Dorothea Brooke, and "more entertaining, more impressive, and more likeable than either." Miss Marjoribanks is perhaps the most famous novel in The Chronicles of Carlingford -- Oliphant's popular series of short stories and novels chronicling the middle-class mores of a fictional English provincial town. The novel's heroine, Lucilla Marjoribanks, returns home to tend her widowed father and soon launches herself into Carlingford society, aiming to raise the tone with her select Thursday evening parties. Optimistic, resourceful, and blithely unimpeded by self-doubt, Lucilla is a superior being in every way, not least in relation to men. Margaret Oliphant's acclaimed biographer, Elisabeth Jay, has edited and introduced this Penguin Classics edition.

Subduction Top to Bottom

Product : Subduction Top to Bottom
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Perhaps no other plate tectonic setting has attracted as diverse multidisciplinary attention as convergent margins. This has in part been spurred by the extremely tangible hazards imposed by subduction, particularly in the form of earthquakes and tsunamis and arc volcanism. Concern regarding these hazards is heightened by the tendency of convergent margins to be heavily populated coastal regions. There has also been great interest in convergent margin settings for their potential (and demonstrated capability) of producing economically important oil and gas reservoirs and ore deposits. The cycling of materials (e.g., CO2 at convergent margins has been recognized as potentially significantly effecting changes in our environment, in particular, impacting evolution of the hydrosphere and atmosphere. It is widely accepted that convergent margin accretion and arc magmatism have been largely responsible for continental crust formation over long periods of Earth's history.

Edison remains rooted in the popular imagination primarily as the inventor of the practical electric light, but he also continues to function in the lexicons of advertising and politics as a symbol of American individualism, ingenuity, and know-how.

The Chronic Pain Solution: Your Personal Path to Pain Relief

Product : The Chronic Pain Solution: Your Personal Path to Pain Relief
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Every morning, more than 50 million Americans wake up to another day in pain. If you are one of them, you know the way chronic pain can take over your life: the lost work and missed pleasures, the harsh drugs or surgeries, the feelings of anger and frustration, the endless search from doctor to doctor. It doesn't have to be that way. This remarkable book, by one of the leading pain specialists in America, puts in your hands the resources usually available only at the most sophisticated pain clinics. Recent research has shown that the solution to the puzzle of pain is almost never one "magic bullet" treatment. What works is a combination of therapies--often three or more--customized to your individual needs. Some drugs or surgeries can actually make your condition worse, while surprisingly gentle alternative therapies can provide measurable, lasting relief. The key is knowing how to combine the best of both conventional and alternative medicine. Dr. James Dillard offers you what few physicians today are trained to provide: - fascinating new information on how pain affects your body and mind--including six myths that can keep you from healing - a detailed guide to more than 40 treatment methods, from state-of-the-art microsurgery and pharmaceuticals to acupuncture, yoga, and biofeedback - individual chapters on the 12 most common types of pain, from arthritis and back pain to fibromyalgia and migraines--clearly indicating what works and what to avoid - The Pain-Control Diet--and 20 top supplements for pain relief - how to build your pain-management team and get what you need from your insurance company - checklists, self-evaluations, and guides for tracking treatment - special chapters on children, seniors, pregnant women, terminal pain--plus how you can help a loved one in pain You can take back your life from pain. The Chronic Pain Solution will guide you every step of the way. "From the Hardcover edition."

Susan Lenox: Her Fall and Rise

Product : Susan Lenox: Her Fall and Rise
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This strong novel about the real life of women and turn-of-the-century social and economic conditions in the United States was the posthumous work of a highly successful muckraking journalist and "problem novelist." As Elizabeth Janeway notes in her new Afterword to this edition, "Susan Lenox," " "written when the first feminist wave in this country was beginning to make itself felt, gives us "a striking, indeed an unforgettable, view of the past that] merges im-perceptibly with the present," and does so, she adds, "with a clarity of vision and an objectivity about women's real existence which is rare even now." It is a picaresque story of a heroine born a "love child" in a rural setting and raised in comfort and seeming affec-tion, graced with good looks, intelli-gence, and an innate nobility, who is thrown out on an uncaring society to sink or swim. Her fall before her rise is into prostitution. Her rise as a Broad-way star, by means of her will, pride and determination, and trust in herself, causes her to reject dependence on any man. Along with the documented op-pression of women, readers will find clear statements of feminist ideas rang-ing from the economic to the personal. A permanently valuable study and a classic of social realism, "Susan Lenox "richly deserves a new reading today for its contribution to an understanding of the life of women in our society.

Confronting Reality: Doing What Matters to Get Things Right

Product : Confronting Reality: Doing What Matters to Get Things Right
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Confronting Reality will change the way you think about and run your business. It is the first book that shows how to connect the big picture of the new era of business with the nitty-gritty of what to do about it. Through a completely new way to understand and use the business model as the primary tool for confronting reality--a breakthrough that will become the management innovation of this decade--you'll know sooner rather than later whether your fundamental business premise is under assault, where your best opportunities lie, what you should change and what you should leave alone, and how to realistically plan the future of your business. The fundamentals of how a business makes money are being rapidly and permanently altered by sweeping structural changes. With their extraordinary depth and breadth of experience, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan are the ideal guides for everyone--entrepreneur, mid-level manager, or CEO--about what is to be done so you can get things right in this challenging, radically changed world. They start by showing you how to understand the most fundamental element of any business: whether you can realistically make the money you hope to in the game you're playing. Bossidy and Charan show how to use the business model to develop a robust, reality-based process for thinking about the speci?cs of your business in a holistic way. They show how to tie together the financial targets you must meet, the external realities you face, and internal activities such as strategy development, operating tactics, and selection and development of people. Through the lens of the business model, as well as the skillful use of initiatives and development of people with the right leadership characteristics, you'll see how Robert Nardelli at Home Depot, Jim McNerney at 3M, Dick Harrington at the Thomson Corporation, Michael Wisbrun at KLM, Joseph Tucci at EMC, and John Chambers at Cisco confronted reality. Whether they faced crisis or opportunity, all made the right kinds of changes through a combination of business savvy (the art of understanding the fundamentals driving a business) and business model thinking.

The Perfect Hour: The Romance of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ginevra King, His First Love

Product : The Perfect Hour: The Romance of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ginevra King, His First Love
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : F. Scott Fitzgerald was a handsome, ambitious sophomore at Princeton when he fell in love for the first time. Ginevra King, though only sixteen, was beautiful, socially poised, and blessed with the confidence that considerable wealth can bring. Their romance began instantly, flourished in heartfelt letters, and quickly ran its course-but Scott never forgot it. Now, for the first time, scholar and biographer James L. W. West III tells the story of the youthful passion that shaped Scott Fitzgerald's life as a writer. When Scott and Ginevra met in January 1915, the rest of the world was at war, but America remained a haven for young people who could afford to have a good time. Privileged and mildly rebellious, the two were swept together in a whirl of dances, parties, campus weekends, and chaperoned visits to New York. "For heaven's sake "don't" idealize me " Ginevra warned in one of the many letters she sent to Scott, but of course that's just what he did-for the next two decades. Though he fell in love with Zelda Sayre soon after learning of Ginevra's engagement to a well-to-do midwesterner, Scott drew on memories of Ginevra for his most unforgettable female characters-Isabelle Borge and Rosalind Connage in "This Side of Paradise," Judy Jones in "Winter Dreams," and above all Daisy Buchanan in "The Great Gatsby," Transformed by Scott's art, Ginevra became a new American heroine who inspired an entire generation.
