Matriarch

Product : Matriarch
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In thirty years, the invincible "Eqbas" will arrive at Earth to forcibly return the planet to what it once was--as retribution, in part, for the "gethes"' thoughtless near-extermination of an alien ocean-dwelling species. First, however, another world requires their attention: the crowded, ecologically ravaged planet of the swarming, insect-like "isenj." Efforts to drastically reduce the "isenj" population have sparked a devastating civil war--which may well do the savior/destroyers' work for them. And the human visitors can only watch. Rendered immortal and ever changeable by a parasite in her blood, ex-cop Shan Frankland isn't content merely to play Matriarch to her two similarly infected mates--one earthborn, one alien "wess'har." Her fears for the future of Umeh and the ultimate fate of humankind must be set aside while she tackles an unfulfilled duty that haunts her every waking moment--a mission that must be undertaken for the sake of the future--and pursues a righteous vengeance.

A Valley in Italy

Product : A Valley in Italy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Of all the romantic obsessions in novelist Lisa St Aubin de Teran's life, the search for a castle occupied her the longest--until she saw the magnificent Villa Orsola deep in the Umbrian hills. Only after eagerly signing the ownership papers did she and her husband, painter Robbie Duff-Scott, discover they were the owners of a vast ruin lacking windowpanes, parts of the roof, and other essentials. "A Valley in Italy" recounts its restoration in the grand style of impossible house and the charms of bohemian family life. It also offers a rare portrait of the life of a. Italian village, where "all things are made to be as enjoyable as possible." " Lisa St Aubin de Teran's intuitive sense of place, her affection for the people around her, and her appreciation for native Italian grace make this a memorable book that can stand beside the best accounts of Italian life.

Children of Dust: A Memoir of Pakistan

Product : Children of Dust: A Memoir of Pakistan
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Ali Eteraz's "Children of Dust" is a spellbinding portrayal of a life that few Americans can imagine. From his schooling in a "madrassa" in Pakistan to his teenage years as a Muslim American in the Bible Belt, and back to Pakistan to find a pious Muslim wife, this lyrical, penetrating saga from a brilliant new literary voice captures the heart of our universal quest for identity. "Children of Dust" begins in rural Islam at the lowest levels of Pakistani society in the turbulent eighties. This intimate portrayal of rustic village life is revealed through a young boy's eyes as he discovers magic, women, and friendship. After immigrating with his family to the United States, Eteraz struggles to be a normal American teenager under the rules of a strict Muslim household. In 1999, he returns to Pakistan to find the villages of his youth dominated by the ideology of the Taliban, filled with young men spouting militant rhetoric, and his extended family under threat. Eteraz becomes the target of a mysterious abduction plot when he is purported to be a CIA agent, and eventually has to escape under military escort. Back in the United States, with his fundamentalist illusions now shattered, Eteraz tries to find a middle way within American Islam. At each stage of Eteraz's life, he takes on a different identity to signal his evolution. From being pledged to Islam in Mecca as an infant, through Salafi fundamentalism, to liberal reformer, Eteraz desperately struggles to come to terms with being a Pakistani and a Muslim. Astonishingly honest, darkly comic, and beautifully told, "Children of Dust" is an extraordinary adventure that reveals the diversity of Islamic beliefs, the vastness of the Pakistani diaspora, and the very human search for home.

Description : Like having a private coach at their elbows, this introduction to algebra-based physics involves readers actively in a guided learn-by-doing process--sensing when they need a very patient exposition and when they need only minimal reinforcement, when they need to focus on concepts and when they need an opportunity to practice their quantitative skills.

Coming almost entirely from Davies' own files of unpublished material, these twenty-four essays and lectures range over themes from "The Novelist and Magic" to "Literature and Technology", from "Painting, Fiction, and Faking", to "Can a Doctor Be a Humanist?" and "Creativity in Old Age". For devotees of Davies and all lovers of literature and language, here is the "urbanity, wit, and high seriousness mixed by a master chef" (Cleveland Plain Dealer) -- vintage delights from an exquisite literary menu. Davies himself says merely: "Lucky writers...like wine, die rich in fruitiness and delicious aftertaste, so that their works survive them". "A splendid gallimaufry of the eminent Canadian's talks and essays". -- The Washington Post Book World "A rare, unvarnished look into one of the century's greatest literary minds as it ranges freely through topics great and small....

A.G. Spalding and the Rise of Baseball: The Promise of American Sport

Product : A.G. Spalding and the Rise of Baseball: The Promise of American Sport
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A. G. Spalding was a key figure in the professionalization and commercialization of American sports. Co-founder of baseball's National League, owner of the Chicago White Stockings (later the Cubs), and founder of a sporting goods business that made him a millionaire, Spalding not only willed baseball to be our national pastime but also contributed to making sport a significant part of American life. This biography captures the zest, flamboyance, and creativity of Albert Goodwell Spalding, a man of insatiable ego, a showman and entrepreneur, whose life illuminated the hopes and fears of 19th-century Americans. It is a vivid evocation of the vanished world of 19th-century baseball, recreating a time when it was transformed from a game played on unkempt fields to modern style.

Us and Them: A History of Intolerance in America

Product : Us and Them: A History of Intolerance in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The history of intolerance in the United States begins in colonial times. Discrimination on the basis of religion, race, and sexual orientation have been characteristic of our society for more than three centuries. Us and Them illuminates these dark corners of our nation's past and traces its ongoing efforts to live up to its ideals. Through 14 case studies, using original documents, historical photos, newly commissioned paintings, and dramatic narratives, readers begin to understand the history and psychology of intolerance as they witness firsthand the struggles that have shaped our collective identity. We read about Mary Dyer, who was executed for her Quaker faith in Boston in 1660. We learn how the Mormons were expelled from Missouri in 1838. The attack on Chinese miners in Rock Spring, Wyoming in 1885, the battle of Wounded Knee in 1890, the activities of the Ku Klux Klan in Mobile, Alabama in 1981, and the Crown Heights riot in New York in 1991--all are presented in clear and powerful narrative that brings to life history that is often forgotten or slighted.

The Great Risk Shift: The Assault on American Jobs, Families, Health Care and Retirement and How You Can Fight Back

Product : The Great Risk Shift: The Assault on American Jobs, Families, Health Care and Retirement and How You Can Fight Back
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : America's leaders say the economy is strong and getting stronger. But ordinary Americans aren't buying it. They see what the rosy statistics hide: We are all struggling under the weight of terrifying economic instability. No matter how well educated and hard working we are, we know that the bottom can fall out at any moment. Meanwhile, the safety net that once protected us is fast unraveling. With retirement plans in growing jeopardy while health coverage erodes, more and more economic risk is shifting from government and business onto the fragile shoulders of the American family. In The Great Risk Shift, Jacob S. Hacker lays bare this unsettling new economic climate, showing how it has come about, what it is doing to our families, and how we can fight back. Behind this shift, he contends, is the Personal Responsibility Crusade, eagerly embraced by corporate leaders and Republican politicians who speak of a nirvana of economic empowerment, an "ownership society" in which Americans are free to choose. But as Hacker reveals, the result has been quite different: a harsh new world of economic insecurity, in which far too many Americans are free to lose. The book documents how two great pillars of economic security--the family and the workplace--guarantee far less financial stability than they once did. The final leg of economic support--the public and private benefits that workers and families get when economic disaster strikes--has dangerously eroded as political leaders and corporations increasingly cut back protections of our health care, our income security, and our retirement pensions. Hacker concludes by advocating an "insurance and opportunity society" that would safeguard economic security and expand economic opportunity, ensuring that all Americans have the basic financial security they need to reach for and achieve the American Dream. Jacob Hacker brings into focus as never before the pressures that the Great Risk Shift exerts on our pocketbooks and on our lives. Blending powerful human stories, big-picture analysis, and compelling ideas for reform, this remarkable volume will hit a nerve, serving as a rallying point in the vital struggle for economic security in an increasingly uncertain world.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Recent years have seen the publication of a number of sensationalist books on Jesus that are supported neither by the New Testament witness nor by mainstream Christian beliefs. This important new book critically examines the best biblical and historical scholarship before tackling some of the key questions of systematic christology: How could Jesus be fully a man and yet truly divine? How could he be sinless and yet exercise free human will? How can his role as universal savior be reconciled with other religions? Can his maleness be reconciled by the just demands of feminism? Clear, balanced, and accessible, this book offers an invaluable interpretation of these and other controversial issues for students, general readers, and clergy.

Product : Travels with Tooy: History, Memory, and the African American Imagination
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Thirty-five years into his research among the descendants of rebel slaves living in the South American rain forest, anthropologist Richard Price encountered Tooy, a priest, philosopher, and healer living in a rough shantytown on the outskirts of Cayenne, French Guiana. Tooy is a time traveler who crosses boundaries between centuries, continents, the worlds of the living and the dead, and the visible and invisible. With an innovative blend of storytelling and scholarship, "Travels with Tooy" recounts the mutually enlightening and mind-expanding journeys of these two intellectuals. Included on the itinerary for this hallucinatory expedition: forays into the eighteenth century to talk with slaves newly arrived from Africa; leaps into the midst of battles against colonial armies; close encounters with double agents and femme fatale forest spirits; and trips underwater to speak to the comely sea gods who control the world's money supply. This enchanting book draws on Price's long-term ethnographic and archival research, but above all on Tooy's teachings, songs, stories, and secret languages to explore how Africans in the Americas have created marvelous new worlds of the imagination.

A History of Modern Computing

Product : A History of Modern Computing
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This engaging history covers modern computing from the development of the first electronic digital computer through the advent of the World Wide Web. The author concentrates on four key moments of transition: the transformation of the computer in the late 1940s from a specialized scientific instrument to a commercial product; the emergence of small systems in the late 1960s; the beginnings of personal computing in the 1970s; and the spread of networking after 1985. Within this chronological narrative, the book traces several overlapping threads: the evolution of the computer's internal design; the effect of economic trends and the Cold War; the long-term role of IBM as a player and as a target for upstart entrepreneurs; the growth of software from a hidden element to a major character in the story of computing; and the recurring issue of the place of information and computing in a democratic society. The focus is on the United States (though Europe and Japan enter the story at crucial points), on computing per se rather than on applications such as artificial intelligence, and on systems that were sold commercially and installed in quantities. The author balances stories of individuals with those of institutions and emphasizes those factors that conspired to bring about the decisive shifts in the story.

"Superbly sensitive to the ground-level tragedy and the high-level politics of 1944-45, the readably fluent Dallas proves integral to understanding both what is known and unknown about the cataclysmic conclusion of the Second World War."--"Booklist" (starred review) "One comes away from reading Gregor Dallas's eloquent book with a profound sense of the war's futility, wastefulness, and unintended consequences."--James J.

The Wanderer: The Last American Slave Ship and the Conspiracy That Set Its Sails

Product : The Wanderer: The Last American Slave Ship and the Conspiracy That Set Its Sails
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On Nov. 28, 1858, a ship called the "Wanderer" slipped silently into a coastal channel and unloaded a cargo of over 400 African slaves onto Jekyll Island, Georgia, fifty years after the African slave trade had been made illegal. It was the last ship ever to bring a cargo of African slaves to American soil. The "Wanderer" began life as a luxury racing yacht, but within a year was secretly converted into a slave ship, and--using the pennant of the New York Yacht Club as a diversion--sailed off to Africa. More than a slaving venture, her journey defied the federal government and hurried the nation's descent into civil war. The "New York Times" first reported the story as a hoax; as groups of Africans began to appear in the small towns surrounding Savannah, however, the story of the "Wanderer" began to leak out, igniting a fire of protest and debate that made headlines throughout the nation and across the Atlantic. As the story shifts from New York City to Charleston, to the Congo River, Jekyll Island and finally Savannah, the "Wanderer's" tale is played out in the slave markets of Africa, the offices of the "New York Times," heated Southern courtrooms, The White House, and some of the most charming homes Southern royalty had to offer. In a gripping account of the high seas and the high life in New York and Savannah, Erik Calonius brings to light one of the most important and little remembered stories of the Civil War period.

Brother Sun, Sister Moon: The Life and Stories of St. Francis

Product : Brother Sun, Sister Moon: The Life and Stories of St. Francis
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Saint Francis of Assisi has always held a fascination for members of all faiths, and his story continues to inspire and motivate us more than seven hundred years after his death. Born into a wealthy family, he led a dissolute life as a young man. Then one day he had a conversion experience while passing a poor leper's hut. From that day on, Francis dedicated his life to helping the poor and outcasts of society and to teaching respect for all living things. He was joined by a noblewoman, Clare, who was soon known as Sister Moon to Francis's Brother Sun. This appealing book includes many of the tales that were told about him, including his taming of the fierce wolf of Gubbio and the famous prayer that begins, "Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace". With its charming text and glowing illustrations this is a book to give, to keep, to cherish.

Capitol Threat

Product : Capitol Threat
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When Oklahoma attorney Ben Kincaid came to Washington, D.C., to defend a senator caught in a red-hot sex scandal turned murder case, he never dreamed he'd end up trading the courtroom for the senate chamber. And after his not-so-distinguished client stepped down, Ben found himself appointed to complete the sullied senator's term. Now, having barely gotten his political sea legs, he must rise to yet another challenge: advising the president's next Supreme Court nominee during the sometimes thorny confirmation process. Luckily, Judge Thaddeus Roush's popularity on both sides of the aisle looks to make him a shoo-in. Until he decides to out himself on national television-igniting a Beltway uproar and setting the stage for a bare-knuckle partisan brawl. Forced to scramble for spin control, Ben hastily calls a press conference for the now controversial candidate. But the photo op becomes a tabloid nightmare when, on live TV, a brutally murdered woman is discovered in the judge's backyard. For the political forces out to torpedo the nomination of a gay Supreme Court Justice, the shocking turn of events is pure gold. With the secret backing of the president and a made-to-order new candidate waiting in the wings, the cagey senate majority leader and his most ruthless allies mount a smear campaign that would put Joe McCarthy to shame. But Team Kincaid isn't about to let the best man for the job get derailed. While Ben uses his best courtroom strategies to wage a war of words, his crack private eye, Loving, hits the capital streets to fight a much more hands-on battle-with hustlers, hit men, and homicidal hoods-as he digs for dirt in places even Deep Throat would avoid. It's soon clear that this game is anything but politics as usual. In Capitol Threat, William Bernhardt serves up a resounding one-two punch of political intrigue and legal suspense peppered with a volley of his trademark plot twists, sly wit, and persistent thrills.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One of the worst natural disasters in American history, the 1896 New York heat wave killed almost 1,500 people in ten oppressively hot days. The heat coincided with a pitched presidential contest between William McKinley and the upstart Democrat William Jennings Bryan, who arrived in New York City at the height of the catastrophe. As historian Edward P. Kohn shows, Bryan's hopes for the presidency began to flag amidst the abhorrent heat just as a bright young police commissioner named Theodore Roosevelt was scrambling to mitigate the dangerously high temperatures by hosing down streets and handing out ice to the poor. A vivid narrative that captures the birth of the progressive era, "Hot Time in the Old Town" revives the forgotten disaster that almost destroyed a great American city.

Chinese

Product : Chinese
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Any account of reading the Chinese past is enriched by the fact that Chinese writing is both ancient and current. No other writing system of antiquity enjoys this benefit. Since the emergence of the earliest discernible process of writing, in northern China around 1200 b.c., the Chinese system has been used by millions of speakers, and today more people speak a Chinese language than any other. In his accessible, straightforward book, Oliver Moore demystifies one of the world's oldest writing systems, introducing the basic principles of the language, the formation of written characters, and the ways these characters have developed. Drawing on evidence from numerous artifacts in the British Museum and elsewhere, he describes, chronologically, several of the major scripts used to write on each material, from the earliest oracle bones to calligraphic works of art. Moore defines the Chinese language both as a member of an East Asian language family and as a broad term covering quite distinct variations in speech within the borders of modern China. He discusses how the Chinese writing system works today, demonstrating how it exerts its influence far beyond the traditional borders of China. The last chapter illustrates instances of Chinese characters borrowed to write non-Chinese languages.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Broadway star Ethel Merman's voice was a mesmerizing force and her vitality was legendary, yet the popular perception of La Merm as the irrepressible wonder falls far short of all that she was and all that she meant to Americans over so many decades. This marvelously detailed biography is the first to tell the full story of how the stenographer from Queens, New York, became the queen of the Broadway musical in its golden age. Mining official and unofficial sources, including interviews with Merman's family and her personal scrapbooks, Caryl Flinn unearths new details of Merman's life and finds that behind the high-octane personality was a remarkably pragmatic woman who never lost sight of her roots. "Brass Diva "takes us from Merman's working-class beginnings through the extraordinary career that was launched in 1930 when, playing a secondary role in a Gershwin Brothers' show, she became an overnight sensation singing "I Got Rhythm." From there, we follow Merman's hits on Broadway, her uneven successes in Hollywood, and her afterlife as a beloved camp icon. This definitive work on the phenomenon that was Ethel Merman is also the first to thoroughly explore her robust influence on American popular culture.

Red Mutiny: Eleven Fateful Days on the Battleship Potemkin

Product : Red Mutiny: Eleven Fateful Days on the Battleship Potemkin
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The true story of the deadliest naval mutiny in history In 1905, after being served rancid meat, more than seven hundred Russian sailors mutinied against their officers aboard what was then one of the most powerful battleships in the world. Theirs was a life barely worth living -- a life of hard labor and bitter oppression, an existence, in its hopelessness and injustice, not unlike that of most of the working class in Russia at the time. Certainly their rebellion came as no surprise. Still, against any reasonable odds of success, the sailors-turned-revolutionaries, led by the charismatic firebrand Matyushenko, risked their lives to take control of the ship and fly the red flag of revolution. What followed was a violent port-to-port chase that spanned eleven harrowing days and came to symbolize the Russian revolution itself. A pulse-quickening story that alternates between the opulent court of Nicholas II and the razor's-edge tension aboard the Potemkin, Red Mutiny is a tale threaded with terrific adventure, epic naval battles, heroic sacrifices, treachery, bloodlust, and a rallying cry of freedom that would steer the course of the twentieth century. It is also a fine work of scholarship that draws for the first time on the Soviet archives to shed new light on this seminal event in Russian and naval history. For readers of Tom Clancy's Hunt for Red October and Nathaniel Philbrick's In the Heart of the Sea, Neal Bascomb's gripping adventure at sea is the story of courage, the power of ideas, and the fragile nature of alliance.

"Wiseguy" is Henry Hill's story, in fascinating, brutal detail, the never-before-revealed day-to-day life of a working mobster -- his violence, his wild spending sprees, his wife, his mistresses, his code of honor. Henry Hill knows where a lot of bodies are buried, and he turned Federal witness to save his own life. The mob is still hunting him for what he reveals in "Wiseguy": hundreds of crimes including arson, extortion, hijacking, and the $6 million Lufthansa heist, the biggest successful cash robbery in U.S. history, which led to ten murders. A firsthand account of the secret world of the mob, "Wiseguy" is more compelling than any novel.

Stowaway

Product : Stowaway
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the summer of 1768, an eleven-year-old butcher's apprentice named Nicholas Young climbed aboard a ship, hid himself from captain and crew, and waited to be carried far away from the life he hated in London. Nick didn't know it, but the ship he chose -- H.M.S. "Endeavour" -- was bound for an astonishing adventure. Captained by James Cook, "Endeavour" was on a secret mission to discover an unknown continent at the bottom of the globe. During his three-year voyage, Nick encountered hardship and was awed by new discoveries; he weathered danger and proved himself brave when disaster struck; he earned the respect and trust of the gentlemen on board; he made a friend for life. And he made history. An eleven-year-old boy named Nicholas Young really did stow away on Cook's "Endeavour." Based on exhaustive historical research and illustrated with evocative drawings by Robert Andrew Parker, "Stowaway" is Newbery winner Karen Hesse's extraordinary fictional account of the real Nicholas's journey.

Latin America at the End of Politics

Product : Latin America at the End of Politics
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : After decades of ideological struggle, much of it in the service of an elusive socialist ideal, Latin America has embraced liberalism--democracy and unfettered markets. But liberalism has triumphed more by default than through exuberance. The region's democracies are fragile and lethargic. Despite pronounced social inequality, widespread poverty, and other difficulties, the populace is not engaged in deep discussions about state and society. The end of ideological contests has dampened political conflict, but likewise lessened the sense of urgency for solving trenchant problems. Political fatigue and devotion to acquisition have smothered egalitarianism as even an ideal. There is an uneasy social indifference. "Latin America at the End of Politics" explores this period of circumscribed political passions through deft portrayals of crucial political, economic, social, and cultural issues: governance, entrepreneurs and markets, urban bias, poverty, the struggle for women's equality, consumerism, crime, environmental degradation, art, and migration of the poor. Discussions of these issues are enriched by the poignant narratives of emblematic individuals, many of whom are disoriented by the ideological void of the era. Forrest Colburn's highly original analysis draws on his deep scholarly and personal familiarity with Latin America. The collage of issues discussed, set in a provocative framework, offers a compelling interpretation of Latin America in the aftermath of the last century's ideological battles--and a way to begin to talk about the region's future.

Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State: Why Americans Vote the Way They Do

Product : Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State: Why Americans Vote the Way They Do
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On the night of the 2000 presidential election, Americans sat riveted in front of their televisions as polling results divided the nation's map into red and blue states. Since then the color divide has become a symbol of a culture war that thrives on stereotypes--pickup-driving red-state Republicans who vote based on God, guns, and gays; and elitist, latte-sipping blue-state Democrats who are woefully out of touch with heartland values. "Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State" debunks these and other political myths. With wit and prodigious number crunching, Andrew Gelman gets to the bottom of why Democrats win elections in wealthy states while Republicans get the votes of richer voters, how the two parties have become ideologically polarized, and other issues. Gelman uses eye-opening, easy-to-read graphics to unravel the mystifying patterns of recent voting, and in doing so paints a vivid portrait of the regional differences that drive American politics. He demonstrates in the plainest possible terms how the real culture war is being waged among affluent Democrats and Republicans, not between the haves and have-nots; how religion matters for higher-income voters; how the rich-poor divide is greater in red not blue states--and much more. "Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State" is a must-read for anyone seeking to make sense of today's fractured American political landscape. Myths and facts about the red and the blue: "Myth: The rich vote based on economics, the poor vote "God, guns, and gays."" Fact: Church attendance predicts Republican voting much more among rich than poor. "Myth: A political divide exists between working-class "red America" and rich "blue America."" Fact: Within any state, more rich people vote Republican. The real divide is between higher-income voters in red and blue states. "Myth: Rich people vote for the Democrats." Fact: George W. Bush won more than 60 percent of high-income voters. "Myth: Religion is particularly divisive in American politics." Fact: Religious and secular voters differ no more in America than in France, Germany, Sweden, and many other European countries.

Description : Ballet fans worldwide will cherish this beautiful photographic retrospective of the last 25 years of the American Ballet Theatre. Featuring more than 120 black-and-white photographs and more than 50 color photographs, this book captures the historic moments in a troupe whose performances have been described by the New York Times as "a marathon of glorious dancing."With a substantial foreword by critic Clive Barnes, the text by Elizabeth Kaye narrates the rich history of the 60-year-old troupe, then concentrates on the two significant eras that have taken the ABT into the millennium as one of the most celebrated dance companies in the world: In the period in which Mikhail Baryshnikov served as its artistic director, commencing in 1980, the company strengthened and refined its classical tradition. The modern era, commencing when former principal dancer Kevin McKenzie took over in 1992, has seen a solid and adventuresome company turning a financial crisis into what Dance magazine calls "a cloudless horizon."Recognized as one of the world's greatest dance companies, ABT sets itself apart by its size, scope, and outreach. Founded in 1940, ABT performs for more than 600,000 people throughout the United State each year and is now in its sixth decade.The book celebrates the rich history of the company considered one of America's living treasures. Some ABT highlights include the company premier of Rudolf Nereyev's Raymonda, the world premiere of Mikhail Baryshnikov's The Nutcracker, and the world premiere of Antony Tudor's The Tiller in the Fields.

Apples of Gold in Settings of Silver: Stories of Dinner as a Work of Art

Product : Apples of Gold in Settings of Silver: Stories of Dinner as a Work of Art
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Eating is biological," said Carolin Young in an interview with "Food & Wine" magazine. "Dining is everything beyond that. It's what makes us human." Lavishly illustrated throughout, "Apples of Gold in Settings of Silver" is a celebration of this philosophy, where the universal impulse to dine elegantly is on exquisite display. In these rich pages, banqueting ascends to the ultimate work of art, engaging all five senses. In thrilling detail, the book travels through ten centuries of European history to tell the stories of twelve legendary dinner parties. These tales have pageantry to spare -- from the lofty ritual of Catholic feast days at Cluny Abbey to the pleasurable voyeurism of Casanova's "soupers intimes," seduction dinners, to the food antics of the twentieth-century Surrealists. After all, it is at the table that human beings enact the theater of their lives. "Dining isn't just about food," Young told "New York" magazine. "It's about the architecture, the ambience, the silver, the porcelain, the people." "Apples of Gold in Settings of Silver" extends the gracious invitation to meet some of Europe's most fascinating personalities, to sample the food and the music, the wardrobe and etiquette that marked such infamous occasions as Titian's nature-worshipping picnics, Talleyrand's foreign-affairs soirees, and the entertainments of the Vienna Secession, inspired by the time-honored adage, "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die." In the telling emerge such important developments in the history of dining as the European discovery of porcelain-making techniques, the introduction of the fork, and the arrival of turkeys from the New World. The book presents avoluptuous intermingling of some of the greatest art, music, and theater ever produced at the table. These dozen stories are each a distinct example of how banqueting nurtures our spirits as well as our bodies.

Modern-day heroine Janey Wilcox is a lingerie model whose reach often exceeds her grasp, and whose new-found success has gone to her head. As we follow Janey's adventures, Bushnell draws us into a seemingly glamorous world of $100,000 cars, hunky polo players and media moguls, Fifth Avenue apartments, and relationships whose hidden agendas are detectable only by the socially astute. But just as Janey enters this world of too much money and too few morals, unseen forces conspire to bring her down, forcing her to reexamine her values about love and friendship--and how far she's really willing to go to realize her dreams.

Easy Care Native Plants: A Guide to Selecting and Using Beautiful American Flowers, Shrubs, and Trees in Gardens and Landscapes

Product : Easy Care Native Plants: A Guide to Selecting and Using Beautiful American Flowers, Shrubs, and Trees in Gardens and Landscapes
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : North America's magnificent plant life has a peculiar history in that it is generally regarded as weedy material in its native meadows and woodlands and viewed as a horticultural treasure trove abroad. In "Easy Care Native Plants," Patricia A. Taylor seeks to change this situation by emphasizing the elegant beauty, rather than the common naturalness, of American flora and by urging gardeners to capture the exquisite essence of its blossoms and foliage in artistic compositions. The book is divided into three sections, each filled with color photographs and containing special lists of plant recommendations from horticultural experits in the United States, Canada, and Europe. These suggestions include natives for city patios and decks, shrubs for winter interest, colorful flowers for drought situations, and prairie plants for a formal front yard display. The first section reviews the history and current use of native American plants and includes a brief primer on garden design. The second presents profiles of eighteen public and private gardens in Canada and the United States and highlights the crucial role of horticultural organizations and garden clubs in spreading the good news about native flora. The last section is devoted to detailed descriptions of over 500 plants, chosen not only for their handsone appearance but also for their ability to flourish without the use of pesticides or fertilizers. With them, gardeners everywhere will have yearlong beauty requiring minimal maintenance. While many of the plants cited in the book are little known, all are commercially propagated and available. The Appendix lists sources for each plant category and describes a select numberof mail-order firms, including ordering information. "Easy Care Native Plants" has been written and designed to be a usable, definitive resource for the full specturm of those who love and appreciate beautiful plants, from weekend gardeners to landscape designers and architects.

Mary Frank: Encounters

Product : Mary Frank: Encounters
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In works of astonishing poignancy and power, Mary Frank's art speaks to our deepest emotions. In the 1970s she established her reputation as a formidable figurative sculptor in clay. Since then, Frank has increasingly turned to painting. A major exhibition at the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, New York, from September 2000 to January 2001, will showcase her paintings of the past 15 years. This book, the catalogue for that exhibition, features an essay by noted art historian Linda Nochlin and reproduces more than 40 of Frank's paintings, including the recent large-scale, richly colored triptychs that have drawn much attention. Four gatefolds reveal both interior and exterior views of these monumental works. Throughout, we see the unifying themes and imagery that have dominated the work of this visual poet whom Linda Nochlin calls "a major figure in the art of this country".

Preventive Defense: A New Security Strategy for America

Product : Preventive Defense: A New Security Strategy for America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : William J. Perry and Ashton B. Carter, two of the world's foremost defense authorities, draw on their experience as leaders of the U.S. Defense Department to propose a new American security strategy for the twenty-first century. After a century in which aggression had to be defeated in two world wars and then deterred through a prolonged cold war, the authors argue for a strategy centered on prevention. Now that the cold war is over, it is necessary to rethink the risks to U.S. security. The A list--threats to U.S. survival--is empty today. The B list--the two major regional contingencies in the Persian Gulf and on the Korean peninsula that dominate Pentagon planning and budgeting--pose imminent threats to U.S. interests but not to survival. And the C list--such headline-grabbing places as Kosovo, Bosnia, Somalia, Rwanda, and Haiti--includes important contingencies that indirectly affect U.S. security but do not directly threaten U.S. interests. Thus the United States is enjoying a period of unprecedented peace and influence; but foreign policy and defense leaders cannot afford to be complacent. The authors' preventive defense strategy concentrates on the dangers that, if mismanaged, have the potential to grow into true A-list threats to U.S. survival in the next century. These include Weimar Russia: failure to establish a self-respecting place for the new Russia in the post-cold war world, allowing it to descend into chaos, isolation, and aggression as Germany did after World War I; Loose Nukes: failure to reduce and secure the deadly legacy of the cold war--nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons in Russia and the rest of the former Soviet Union; A Rising China Turned Hostile: failure to shape China's rise to Asian superpower status so that it emerges as a partner rather than an adversary; Proliferation: spread of weapons of mass destruction; and Catastrophic Terrorism: increase in the scope and intensity of transnational terrorism.They also argue for better management of the defense establishment so the United States will retain a strong military prepared to cope with all contingencies, deter aggressors, and win a conflict if deterrence fails.
