Thomas has a personal stake in the case Harry can't quite figure out. But Harry is about to discover that Thomas' family tree has been hiding a shocking revelation that will change his life forever...

A Plague of Paradoxes: AIDS, Culture, and Demography in Northern Tanzania

Product : A Plague of Paradoxes: AIDS, Culture, and Demography in Northern Tanzania
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since recording its first AIDS cases in 1983, Tanzania has reported nearly 90,000 more to the World Health Organization--more than any other country in Africa. As AIDS spread, the devastating syndrome came to be known simply as "ugonjwa huo: " "that disease." The AIDS epidemic has forced Africans to reflect upon the meaning of traditional ideas and practices related to sexuality and fertility, and upon modernity and biomedicine. In "A Plague of Paradoxes," anthropologist Philip Setel observes Tanzania's Chagga people and their attempts to cope with and understand AIDS--the latest in a series of crises over which they feel they have little, if any, control. Timely and well-researched, "A Plague of Paradoxes" is an extended case study of the most serious epidemic of the twentieth century and the cultural circumstances out of which it emerged. It is a unique book that brings together anthropology, demography, and epidemiology to explain how a particular community in Africa experiences AIDS.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : ""She still hasn't gotten over that Easter Bunny letter," said Zozo. "So what?" said Penina. "If my parents want me to go to Peekskill, what can Ms. Anderson do? Kidnap me?" "No," said Zozo. "She can't kidnap you, but she can flunk you."" Penina Levine has a bossy best friend, a tattletale sister, crazy parents, and a big, fat zero on her school assignment to write a letter as the Easter Bunny. It was a stupid assignment, completely impossible, totally unfair. Penina's never going to do it--not ever--and it's no use telling her parents about it. They never listen to her anyway. But Penina's grandmother does. Grandma doesn't think Penina should do the assignment. It's a matter of principle. It's a matter of strength. It's a matter of five thousand years of history and a couple dozen hard-boiled eggs.

Her irresistibly charming, utterly infuriating ex-husband, aka the . . . "Rogue Being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine. Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dot-com entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husband--first his work and then his never-ending quest for fun kept him constantly on the move, far away from Maxine and his family. For five years Blake and Maxine have worked out an odd but amicable divorce, with friendly though infrequent visits, a yacht he lends her every summer, and three children they both adore. Blake enjoys his globe-trotting lifestyle--dating a succession of beautiful, famous, and very young women--while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist, a world-renowned expert on childhood trauma and adolescent suicide. Then everything changes.... For Maxine it starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man who is everything Blake is not--mature, grounded, and present. For Blake it begins when a devastating earthquake strikes near one of his palatial foreign homes and he sees hundreds of orphaned children in need of shelter. Now Blake wants Maxine in his life again--as a partner in a humanitarian project that could change countless lives. For Maxine the choice is clear. But Blake's sudden transformation--from carefree playboy to compassionate, responsible "grown-up--"raises questions she's never managed to answer . . . and some she's afraid to ask. After all, Maxine is on the cusp of a new life, about to marry Charles, and almost certain that Blake Williams, aka the Rogue, is a man capable of doing anything--except change.... An unforgettable story of two people pursuing happiness from opposite directions, Rogue is a journey of choices and the amazing opportunities that come together--just when life seems to have been successfully rearranged at last.

The Girl Who Died Twice

Product : The Girl Who Died Twice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At ll:43 P.M. on Sunday, March 4, l984, l8-year-old Libby Zion was admitted to New York Hospital with a fever and minor flu symptoms. Eight hours later she was dead and her father, New York writer and luminary Sidney Zion, embarked on a fiery quest for answers and retribution that has rocked the foundations of medical education and practice in America and has precipitated sweeping reforms in the laws governing hospitals and residency programs. "The Girl Who Died Twice," written with the participation of both the Zion family and New York Hospital, is the first in-depth examination of this landmark case, which recently inspired a new round of headlines as the bitter legal battle between the family and the hospital came to a head in court -- and on Court TV. But last February's stunning jury verdict also raised troubling issues of patient responsibility in the case, and it left unresolved life and death issues about medical care in this country that have yet to be fully addressed. Here, from acclaimed investigative writer Natalie Robins, is the impeccably researched inside story of this compelling modern tragedy, based on interviews with many of the principals, their friends and associates, and hundreds of medical experts and educators. Robins delivers the disturbing truth about Libby Zion's life and death and about how our hospitals really work. At once gripping personal drama and fascinating medical mystery, her report is vitally important reading for anyone interested in a true understanding of who's in charge of our health.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Contrarian investing is a state of mind. It seeks to bet against the opinion of the crowd when that opinion reaches, or is close to, unanimity. Gallea has codified a series of contrarian trading rules that focus on increasing returns while attempting to avoid risk. Gallea and Patalon describe a solid investment discipline backed by years of research by academics, analysts, and investment managers. They show: -- Why independent thinking could lead to potential profits in the market -- The personality of the successful contrarian -- The best percentage of a portfolio to have in contrarian stocks -- Five contrarian rules to follow -- The one best sign for when to buy -- Three ironclad rules for knowing when to sell. Written in an accessible style suitable for both the professional investor or the newcomer to the market, Gallea and Patalon show that picking a good contrarian stock is not a matter of intuition, gut instinct, or Internet surfing.

How to Drink

Product : How to Drink
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the past few decades, many of us have become sophisticated about food, but we have not given the same attention to what we drink. In "How to Drink," Victoria Moore aims to redress the balance, by showing how to drink well throughout the seasons and at all times of day. She explains how to make the most delicious coffee and juices; how to choose wine that complements your food; and how to make cocktails for every occasion--whether to serve a garden barbecue, as a cold weather aperitif, or just to unwind with at the end of the day. Here are recipes for mint juleps in the spring, sloe gin in the autumn, hot buttered rum in the winter, and year-round showstoppers including the world's best gin and tonic. Moore is also an impassioned advocate of unfairly maligned drinks such as sherry, Campari and saki, and gives fascinating historical background on different spirits as well as invaluable advice on creating your home bar. "How to Drink" is a hugely readable, browseable and authoritative handbook, whose aim is to inform, entertain and crucially, make sure you can find the right drink at the right time. "It doesn't need to be either difficult or expensive to drink as well as you eat, it just requires a little care..." "A splendid book. Victoria Moore is quite right--it's not how much you drink but how you drink." --Fergus Henderson, chef and co-owner, St. Johns Restaurant "I loved "How to Drink." For the first time in years I have broken open a bottle of vodka for a Bloody Mary, remembered how much better mulled cider is than mulled wine, drawn a fresh kettle for tea..." --Joanna Weinberg, author of "How to Feed Your Friends with Relish" "Anyone who loves their food should heed this unmatchable tutorial in the art of enjoying drink; Victoria Moore succinctly puts every sip in lively context, banishing the guilt from the pleasure of it all." --Rose Prince, author of "The New English Kitchen"

Best Seat in the House: A Father, a Daughter, a Journey Through Sports

Product : Best Seat in the House: A Father, a Daughter, a Journey Through Sports
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the best-known and most widely read woman sports columnist in the United States comes a remarkable memoir of a father and a daughter, the story of a girl who would turn her love for sports into a trailblazing career. Christine Brennan grew up in Toledo, Ohio, spending her summers playing with the boys on her block, memorizing baseball statistics, accompanying her dad to countless baseball and football games, and falling in love with "everything" about sports. While other girls were playing with Barbie dolls, Chris was collecting baseball cards and listening to the radio for the play-by-play accounts of her favorite teams. The eldest of four children, Chris was her father's daughter from the beginning. For a girl growing up in the 1960s and '70s, in the days before Title IX changed the playing fields of America, there were few opportunities to play organized sports. But Jim Brennan encouraged his daughter to believe she could play anything she wanted to, and when she couldn't be on the field, he was by her side in the stands -- she always thought the seat next to her father was the best seat in the house -- usually cheering for the underdog, and making sure Chris knew there was a place for her in the world of sports. In her warm and inspiring memoir, the first of its kind by a female sports journalist, Brennan takes readers from her neighborhood ball fields to the press boxes and locker rooms of stadiums around the world. Guided by her father's unfailing sense of loyalty, honor, and fairness, at the age of twenty-two she became the first female sportswriter for "The Miami Herald," and in 1985 was the first woman to cover the Washington Redskins as a staff writer for "The Washington Post." Over the past quarter century, Brennan has reported on many of the biggest stories in sports, and led the coverage of both the 1994 Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan saga and the pairs figure-skating scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics. Her "USA Today" column on Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters, triggered a nationwide debate about the club's lack of female members. Told in the spirited, friendly voice that readers of her column have come to love, "Best Seat in the House" is the heartwarming chronicle of a girl who came of age as women's sports were coming of age, encouraged every step of the way by her beloved father.

Nobody's Children: Abuse and Neglect, Foster Drift and the Adoption Alternative

Product : Nobody's Children: Abuse and Neglect, Foster Drift and the Adoption Alternative
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Upwards of three million children are subject to severe forms of abuse or neglect annually in their homes, and more than half a million live in foster or institutional care, with the numbers growing exponentially. Substance abuse is wreaking havoc in home s and in the child-welfare system--80 to 90 percent of the children victimized by abuse and neglect are being raised by parents who use and abuse alcohol, cocaine, and other drugs during pregnancy. Children removed from their homes be cause of maltre atment languish in institutional care, often bouncing back and forth between foster families and their original families, with state agencies reluctant to terminate parental rights and move them on to adoption, however dim the prospects for nurturing at h ome. Nobody's Children is an intense look at child welfare policies on abuse and neglect, foster care, and adoption. Elizabeth Bartholet, one of the nation's leading experts on family law, challenges the accepted orthodoxy that treats children as belonging to their kinship and their racial groups and that locks them into inadequate biological and foster homes. She asks us to apply the lessons learned from the battered women's movement as we look at battered children, and to question why family preservation ideology still reigns supreme when children rather than adult women are involved. Bartholet asks us to take seriously the adoption option. She calls on the entire community to take responsibility for its children, to think of the children at risk of abuse and neglect as belonging to all of us, and to ensure that "Nobody's Children" become treasured members of somebody's family.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "This is a story of how miracles DO happen." "How courage and a never-give-up spirit can emerge victorious." "How an engaging little monkey helped change a family's life. " Ellen Rogers considered herself something of a tragedy snob. The single mother of five believed she could weather any storm, that she could keep her family from harm with fortitude and grace. But nothing could have prepared her for the June 2005 car accident that left her son, Ned--then 22 years old--fighting for his life. Ellen refused to give in to despair. "We'll get through this, "she told herself. "We have to. "But love and determination can only go so far, and the road home was fraught with obstacles. Ellen and Ned took comfort in family and friends. And they prayed for a miracle. "Miracles happen to those who believe, "the saying goes, but who would have believed that one family's "miracle" would weigh in at five pounds sopping wet Then Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled provided Ned with an affectionate and intelligent service animal with a steadfast devotion to hierarchy, a longing for "spa days," and a craving for Gummi Bears. In other words, a diva.Life with Kasey was yet another challenge for this large and lively family, but they persevered as families do, and in time this wise and sensitive animal did more than help Ned cope with his disabilities--she turned the simple tasks of life into a life worth living. Kasey's astonishing intelligence and compassion brought hope and laughter back to a family facing its greatest challenge, and helped them see the world in a new way.

Using the Hawaiian tradition of "talking story," Jerry and Diane demonstrate the daily application of spiritual principles and practical spirituality.

They inspire us to embrace and share our own stories of peaks and valleys that make up our journeys. The authors' honest and vulnerable style of communicating continues to reveal their life purposes in the choices they make and the lessons they've learned. "Each day still provides challenges and circumstances that call to those parts of us that want to judge others or ourselves," they write. "What is different now is that we more quickly recognize when we're lost and the choice we have to return to the path of unconditional love. Once we remember that our purpose is service and helping others, as well as letting go of our judgments and grievances by practicing forgiveness, the path is easier, the direction clearer, and the destination of peace achievable."

Notes from the Underground

Product : Notes from the Underground
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Notes from Underground is one of the most profound and most unsettling works of modern literature, prefiguring Dostoevskys later masterpieces such as Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, and The Brothers Karamazov. The underground man has become one of the fixtures of the contemporary worldview. No discussion of the predicament of modern man would be complete without some allusion to this archetypal figure both prophetic and loathsome that towers over modern culture. / The Notes from Underground are, as translator Boris Jakim says, A foul passageway leading into the profoundest secrets of the human heart, an abyss where the most loathsome thoughts are revealed. The Notes are a limbo without hope even of hell, a Book of Job without a happy ending, a waiting for nothing and no one (not even Godot). Nonetheless, entering into this underground that Dostoesky claims is in us all is necessary in order to understand not only this lowest of lows, but also the heights that lift man out of the depths into sanctity and exaltation. It is largely due to this masterful contrast that Notes from Underground is considered by many critics to be not only a pinnacle of existentialist literature, but also one of the greatest works of modern literature altogether.

Horizons of the Sacred: Mexican Traditions in U.S. Catholicism

Product : Horizons of the Sacred: Mexican Traditions in U.S. Catholicism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Horizons of the Sacred explores the distinctive worldview underlying the faith and lived religion of Catholics of Mexican descent living in the United States. Religious practices, including devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, celebration of the Day of the Dead, the healing tradition of curanderismo, and Good Friday devotions such as the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis), reflect the increasing influence of Mexican traditions in U.S. Catholicism, especially since Mexicans and Mexican Americans are a growing group in most Roman Catholic congregations.In their introduction, Timothy Matovina and Gary Riebe-Estrella analyze the ways Mexican rituals and beliefs pose significant challenges and opportunities for Catholicism in the United States. Original essays by theologians, historians, and ethnographers provide a rich interdisciplinary dialogue on how religious traditions function for Mexican American Catholics, revealing the symbolic world at the heart of their spirituality. The authors speak to the diverse meanings behind these ceremonies, explaining that Mexican American (and other Latino) Catholics use them to express not only religious devotion, but also ethnic identity and patriotism, solidarity, and, in some cases, their condition as exiles. The result is a multilayered vision of Mexican American religion, which touches as well on issues of racism and discrimination, poverty, and the role of women.

Autumn the City

Product : Autumn the City
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A bastard hybrid of "War of the Worlds" and "Night of the Living Dead," the "Autumn "series chronicles the struggle of a small group of survivors forced to contend with a world torn apart by a deadly disease. After 99% of the population of the planet is killed in less than 24 hours, for the very few who have managed to stay alive, things are about to get much worse. Animated by "phase two" of some unknown contagion, the dead begin to rise. At first slow, blind, dumb and lumbering, quickly the bodies regain their most basic senses and abilities... sight, hearing, locomotion... As well as the instinct toward aggression and violence. Held back only by the restraints of their rapidly decomposing flesh, the dead seem to have only one single goal - to lumber forth and destroy the sole remaining attraction in the silent, lifeless world: those who have survived the plague, who now find themselves outnumbered 1,000,000 to 1... While the first "Autumn "novel focused on those who escaped the city, "Autumn: The City "focuses on those who didn't. Without ever using the 'Z' word, the "Autumn" series offers a new perspective on the traditional zombie story. There's no flesh eating, no fast-moving corpses, no gore for gore's sake. Combining the atmosphere and tone of George Romero's classic living dead films with the attitude and awareness of 28 Days (and Weeks) later, this horrifying and suspenseful novel is filled with relentless cold, dark fear.

Product : Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Now you can become intelligent consumers of scientific research, without being overwhelmed by the statistics Jaccard and Becker's book teaches readers the basic skills for analyzing data and helps them become intelligent consumers of scientific information. Praised for its real-life applications, the book tells readers when to use a particular statistic, why they should use it, and how the statistic should be computed and interpreted. Because many readers, given a set of data, cannot determine where to begin in answering relevant research questions, the authors explicate the issues involved in selecting a statistical test. Each statistical technique is introduced by giving instances where the test is most typically applied followed by an interesting research example (each example is taken from psychology literature).

It is, also, a book that reflects a commonality of the Western experience of this Nation-- a homesteader's story." -- San Francisco Chronicle "This is one of those rare books of actual experience with the smooth continuity of the best fiction." -- Houston Chronicle To the wild and fabulous country where the Rio Grande makes its big bend, J. O. Langford came in 1909 with his wife and daughter in search of health and a home. High on a bluff overlooking the spot where Tornillo Creek pours its waters into the turbulent Rio Grande, the Langfords built their home, a rude structure of adobe blocks in a land reputed to be inhabited only by bandits and rattlesnakes. Big Bend is the story of the Langfords' life in the rugged and spectacularly beautiful country which they came to call their own. Langford's account is told with the help of Fred Gipson, author of Old Yeller and Hound Dog Man.

Awakening the Energy Body: From Shamanism to Bioenergetics

Product : Awakening the Energy Body: From Shamanism to Bioenergetics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A practical guide to understanding and enhancing the functionality of the human energy body - Shows how the energy body and its interactions are the principal determinant of all we see, feel, think, or otherwise perceive - Details strategic skills to manage the infinite alternate realities available to the energy body Each of us inhabits an energy body whose interactions are the principal determinant of all we see, feel, think, or otherwise perceive. Even as modern science is establishing the uncertainty of physical matter, it is asserting the reality of our existence as interconnecting quantum energy fields. For over 5,000 years, shamans of the Toltec tradition have studied and worked with the energy body, learning to recognize and understand its structure and perceptual capacities as well as mapping it as an objective, measurable part of our anatomy. In Awakening the Energy Body, Kenneth Smith's thorough grounding in the Toltec tradition allows him to bring forth an instructive overview for non-Toltec adherents of the latent possibilities available to the energy body and how to bring awareness and objective form to it. Using evidence from the emerging scientific discipline of bioenergetics, which studies the flow and exchange of energy, Smith shows that conscious awareness not only creates our reality but enhances the functionality of the human energy body, allowing it to navigate the myriad realities of our world. He offers a specific set of strategies to manage the energy body in ways that are beneficial to both material existence and spiritual development. He also discusses the ethical considerations of developing consciousness and how one can quicken personal evolution in order to live a full and complete life, while revealing where the worlds of ancient tradition and modern science meet.

Description : The rumor in some circles is that distinguished philosopher Antony Flew--longtime advocate of atheistic humanism--has become a theist. Judge for yourself by reading his new introduction to this reprint of a now classic work, originally published almost forty years ago. Flew addresses the ancient arguments of Aristotle, Aquinas, and Leibniz, among others, as well as the contemporary perspective of Richard Swinburne. Both believers and unbelievers will benefit greatly from Flew's critical analysis of Christian theism and his commitment (following Socrates) to "follow the argument wherever it leads."

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BCE-17 CE), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his "Ars Amatoria, " and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us, and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. Ovid's main surviving works are the "Metamorphoses, " a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the "Fasti, " a poetic treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half; the "Amores, " love poems; the "Ars Amatoria, " not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; "Heroides, " fictitious love letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile: the "Tristia, " appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar "Epistulae ex Ponto." Poetry came naturally to Ovid, who at his best is lively, graphic and lucid. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Ovid is in six volumes.

Description : Sliding into the Rabbit Hole... Would She Ever Return? On the surface, Alice Laxton seems no different from any other college girl: bright, inquisitive, excited about the life ahead of her. But for years, a genetic time bomb has been ticking away. Because of Alice's near-genius intelligence, teachers and counselors have always made excuses for her "little idiosyncrasies." But during a stress-filled senior year at college, a new world of voices, visions, and unexplainable "knowledge" causes Alice to begin to lose her grip on reality. As Alice's schizophrenia progresses, she experiences a disturbing religious "awakening," believing that God and angels and demons are speaking to her. When others attempt to intervene, Alice is subjected to a wide range of "treatments" even more frightening and painful than her illness. Powerfully raw and brutally honest, "Finding Alice" is a story of individual suffering and hope, a family's shared ordeal, and a search for true mental and spiritual healing.

Bill W.: A Biography of Alcoholics Anonymous Cofounder Bill Wilson

Product : Bill W.: A Biography of Alcoholics Anonymous Cofounder Bill Wilson
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When Bill Wilson, with his friend Dr. Bob Smith, founded Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935, his hope was that AA would become a safe haven for those who suffered from this disease. Thirty years after his death, AA continues to help millions of alcoholics recover from what had been commonly regarded as a hopeless addiction. Still, while Wilson was a visionary for millions, he was no saint. After cofounding Alcoholics Anonymous, he stayed sober for over thirty-five years, helping countless thousands rebuild their lives. But at the same time, Wilson suffered form debilitating bouts of clinical depression, was a womanizer, and experimented with LSD. Francis Hartigan, the former secretary and confidant to Wilson's wife, Lois, has exhaustively researched his subject, writing with a complete insider's knowledge. Drawing on extensive interviews with Lois Wilson and scores of early members of AA, he fully explores Wilson's organizational genius, his devotion to the cause, and almost martyr-like selflessness. That Wilson, like all of us, had to struggle with his own personal demons makes this biography all the more moving and inspirational. Hartigan reveals the story of Wilson's life to be as humorous, horrific, and powerful as any of the AA vignettes told daily around the world.

Man the Hunted: Primates, Predators, and Human Evolution

Product : Man the Hunted: Primates, Predators, and Human Evolution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Although "Man the Hunter" is a popular description of our ancestry, the central importance of hunting is firmly fixed only in the archeological record of relatively recent human history. "Man the Hunted" argues that primates, including the earliest members of the human family, have evolved not as hunters but as the prey of any number of predators, including wild cats and dogs, hyenas, snakes, crocodiles, and even birds of prey. Eyewitness accounts, data collected by the authors, and the published reports of naturalists establish the astonishing extent to which living monkeys, lemurs, apes, and even humans fall victim to a wide variety of predators, some of which even specialize in the consumption of primates. Additionally, the fossil record demonstrates that primates have been prey for millions of years, a fact that necessarily shaped the evolution of our earliest ancestors in body and behavior. Skillfully combining information from a number of lines of evidence, "Man the Hunted" casts an entirely new light on the natural history of primates and the evolution of fossil and modern humans.

George Cheever Hazelet, Stephen Birch, and David Henry Jarvis were prime movers in the most ambitious early Alaska development initiative -- the Morgan-Guggenheim Alaska Syndicate. These three men convinced New York investors to provide capital to build the Kennecott copper mines and the Copper river and Northwestern Railway, but opposition from political opportunists, Eastern conservationists and muckraking journalists stifled further industrial development on the last frontier.

Product : The Declaration of Independence: A Global History
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In a stunningly original look at the American Declaration of Independence, David Armitage reveals the document in a new light: through the eyes of the rest of the world. Not only did the Declaration announce the entry of the United States onto the world stage, it became the model for other countries to follow. Armitage examines the Declaration as a political, legal, and intellectual document, and is the first to treat it entirely within a broad international framework. He shows how the Declaration arose within a global moment in the late eighteenth century similar to our own. He uses over one hundred declarations of independence written since 1776 to show the influence and role the U.S. Declaration has played in creating a world of states out of a world of empires. He discusses why the framers' language of natural rights did not resonate in Britain, how the document was interpreted in the rest of the world, whether the Declaration established a new nation or a collection of states, and where and how the Declaration has had an overt influence on independence movements--from Haiti to Vietnam, and from Venezuela to Rhodesia. Included is the text of the U.S. Declaration of Independence and sample declarations from around the world. An eye-opening list of declarations of independence since 1776 is compiled here for the first time. This unique global perspective demonstrates the singular role of the United States document as a founding statement of our modern world.

The First Modern Campaign: Kennedy, Nixon, and the Election of 1960

Product : The First Modern Campaign: Kennedy, Nixon, and the Election of 1960
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this engaging book, Gary Donaldson tells the story of Kennedy versus Nixon with a sharp eye for the salient political developments and a keen sense of the drama of an election that was unlike any other the nation had experienced. The campaign of 1960 was also an orchestrated political drama, organized for a sweeping campaign from coast to coast and staged for a national television audience. This made it the first modern campaign in which the television media changed the dynamics of presidential politics and in which photographs, charisma, and direct appeals to voters counted as they had never done before. It was also an election of intense personal rivalry made all the more spirited by the prejudice against Kennedy's Catholicism and his intention to widen the American political arena. Not since Theodore White's journalistic account of the campaign, iThe Making of the Presidenti, has attention been paid to the full 1960 campaign as it played out in the early primaries and then culminated in the November election. Donaldson shows why the whole political season that resulted in Kennedy versus Nixon is critical to understanding American politics today. iKennedy-Nixon and the Election of 1960i is essential and engaging reading for anyone interested in contemporary politics in the United States.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A Genealogical Quest in the Triracial South "I never met a Johnson cousin until I was forty-seven, the year I met dozens." -- K. Paul Johnson What began as genealogical research into the author's ancestry soon grew into a fascinating tale with lessons for us all. Among his ancestors, Johnson uncovered: unpunished murderers, infidelities that produced stronger families than formal marriages, entire units of North Carolinians who fought and died to preserve the Union in the Civil War. The tale holds enough plot twists for a half-dozen novels. But most of all, it reveals in a personal way what molecular anthropologists have been trying to explain all along. The fact is that we are all of multiple ancestries. Inhabitants of the New World are a genetic mix of three great populations, Native Americans, European colonists, and African slaves. Nowhere is this more vivid than in "Pell Mellers," the story of one man's search for his tangled roots. "Johnson's quest to understand his father becomes a discerning and sensitive historical inquiry that roots the near-present organically in the remote past. Johnson's deeply personal search for his own roots illuminates surprising, forgotten ways of life in a fascinating part of the South." -- Melvin Patrick Ely, author of "Israel on the Appomattox" "This fascinating memoir about the Pell Meller community of northeastern North Carolina reads like a murder mystery. What has been murdered is the truth about their ancestry, and Paul Johnson sets out bravely to discover the corpse, the murderer, and the motives. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the many isolated southeastern groups with odd names, like the Redbones and theMelungeons, who descend from our nation's earliest settlers, in all their ethnic diversity." -- Lisa Alther, author of "Kinfolks: Falling Off the Family Tree" "In Paul Johnson's engaging journey into his roots in Bertie County, North Carolina, he discovers an intriguing family of pocosin dwellers who personify the South's multiracial heritage and its political minorities, including Unionists and the original Buffalo Soldiers. "Pell Mellers" is a solid contribution to the history of the "other South" that complements the well-traveled mainstream, illustrating our rich and textured past." -- Lindley S. Butler, author of "Pirates, Privateers, and Rebel Raiders of the Carolina Coast"

Product : Baja! Cooking on the Edge
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "On the byways of Baja, there isn't a burrito in sight. Any day, in any town, you can choose from a vast array of made-to-order tacos and salsas, fresh-from-the-ocean seafood "cocktels, " grilled corn, succulent fruits skewered with lime and chili powder, vivid fruit juices, piping-hot cinnamon churros, neon-bright candies that stick in your teeth, and frozen treats with names like Angel's Kiss...and that's just the beginning." "--from Chapter 1 "Join acclaimed chef and seasoned Baja traveler Deborah Schneider for an intriguing and appetizing journey through the Baja California region of Mexico, from the dusty towns south of the U.S. border all the way down to breezy Cabo San Lucas at the peninsula's southern tip. Featuring more than 150 tantalizing recipes as well as vivid stories and images, this deliciously unorthodox cookbook transports you to the "real" Baja, with all its vibrant flavor and brilliant color, a place still largely undiscovered by "los turistas. "The famous Baja fish taco is here, of course, in a mixture of authentic recipes and Schneider's own Baja-inspired dishes--ingenious creations for which "Bon Appetit "magazine named her "the reigning queen of San Diego chefs." No matter how far north of the border you may be, with Schneider's easy-to-follow recipes, now you can feast on uniquely Baja delights like Clams in Tequila Butter, One-Pan Paella, Garlic Cilantro Steak, and Chocolate-Jalapeno Truffles. Enjoy.

Feminists, Islam, and Nation: Gender and the Making of Modern Egypt

Product : Feminists, Islam, and Nation: Gender and the Making of Modern Egypt
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The emergence and evolution of Egyptian feminism is an integral, but previously untold, part of the history of modern Egypt. Drawing upon a wide range of women's sources--memoirs, letters, essays, journalistic articles, fiction, treatises, and extensive oral histories--Margot Badran shows how Egyptian women assumed agency and in so doing subverted and refigured the conventional patriarchal order. Unsettling a common claim that "feminism is Western" and dismantling the alleged opposition between feminism and Islam, the book demonstrates how the Egyptian feminist movement in the first half of this century both advanced the nationalist cause and worked within the parameters of Islam.

Estonia and Estonians

Product : Estonia and Estonians
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this comprehensive survey of Estonian history, Toivo Raun places recent events into historical perspective with up-to-date information on the era of "glasnost" and "perestroika" (1985-1991), analyzing the striking process of rebirth, renewal, and de-Sovietization. He stresses the role of Estonia's strategic geopolitical location and the small number of ethnic Estonians as crucial factors that have shaped the history of the area and its inhabitants. Since prehistoric times Estonia has been a crossroads of northeastern Europe where the major powers of the region have struggled for influence. "Estonia and the Estonians" offers a balanced topical survey covering political history, the economy, social and demographic developments, and cultural life. Attention is also paid to historiography and to differing interpretations of major issues; throughout the book the history of Estonia is viewed in the larger context of northern and eastern Europe.

Naked Clay: Ceramics Without Glaze

Product : Naked Clay: Ceramics Without Glaze
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A growing number of ceramic artists now choose not to glaze their work. Instead, they use an unglazed-naked-surface to express their ideas and concerns. From slips and terra sigillata to burnishing, engobes, oxide washes, and additions to the clay body, there is a wide range of techniques artists can employ to achieve the finishes they desire. As these techniques are suitable for a broad spectrum of processes, subject matter and context (from slipcasting to handbuilding, from high to low firing temperatures, from figurative to conceptual, from domestic to public), the scope of the work produced by the artists represented in this book is enormous. In "Naked Clay" Jane Perryman not only presents the finished ceramics and techniques of an international group of artists, she also investigates their ideas and areas of inspiration to further an understanding of their work. Each artist presented here has a unique style and way of working, but they are all connected through their committed relationship to the material and their desire to express their ideas using "naked" clay. This beautifully illustrated book will inform and inspire not only students, professionals, and teachers, it will fascinate collectors and, indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary ceramics.
