The Web of Friendship: Marianne Moore and Wallace Stevens

Product : The Web of Friendship: Marianne Moore and Wallace Stevens
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "an absolutely necessary book . . . belongs with Longenbach's important study of Stevens as part of a new way of reading the Modernists."--Margaret Dickie, University of Georgia "The Web of Friendship" offers a lively critical account of the little-known and long-lived poetic and personal relationship between Marianne Moore (1887-1972) and Wallace Stevens (1879-1955). Robin G. Schulze traces the two poets' give-and-take from the years immediately following the First World War to Stevens's death in 1955 and explores how events like the Great Depression, the rise of leftist poets in the 1920s and 1930s, and the devastation of the Second World War shaped their poetic exchange. She provides a unique account of the poignant personal conversation between Moore and Stevens in the 1950s, their final years of close friendship before Stevens's death. Grounded in manuscript study, "The Web of Friendship" also uncovers hitherto unknown source materials for a number of Stevens's and Moore's poems that lead to fresh interpretations of their verse. Finally, Moore's unexplored, principally supportive relationship with Stevens is a complex illustration of cross-gender cooperation that suggests new ways of understanding poetic influence as historically, archivally, and biographically contextualized conversation. "The Web of Friendship" makes a valuable contribution not only to the study of Moore's and Stevens's poetry, but to the consideration of modernist poetry generally and the broader study of poetic influence. Robin G. Schulze is Assistant Professor of English, Pennsylvania State University.

Reading Desire: In Pursuit of Ernest Hemingway

Product : Reading Desire: In Pursuit of Ernest Hemingway
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Whether revered for his masculinity, condemned as an icon of machismo, or perceived as possessing complex androgynous characteristics, Ernest Hemingway is acknowledged to be one of the most important twentieth-century American novelists. For Debra A. Moddelmog, the intense debate about the nature of his identity reveals how critics' desires give shape to an author's many guises. In her provocative book, Moddelmog interrogates Hemingway's persona and work to show how our perception of the writer is influenced by society's views on knowledge, power, and sexuality. She believes that recent attempts to reinvent Hemingway as man and as artist have been circumscribed by their authors' investment in heterosexist ideology; she seeks instead to situate Hemingway's sexual identity in the interface between homosexuality and heterosexuality. Moddelmog looks at how sexual orientation, gender, race, nationality, able-bodiedness -- and the intersections of these elements -- contribute to the formation of desire. Ultimately, she makes a far-reaching and suggestive argument about multiculturalism and the canons of American letters, asserting that those who teach literature must be aware of the politics and ethics of the authorial constructions they promote.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : WikiLeaks is the most challenging journalistic phenomenon to have emerged in the digital era. It has provoked anger and enthusiasm in equal measure, from across the political and journalistic spectrum.WikiLeaks poses a series of questions to the status quo in politics, journalism and to the ways we understand political communication. It has compromised the foreign policy operations of the most powerful state in the world, broken stories comparable to great historic scoops like the Pentagon Papers, and caused the mighty international news organizations to collaborate with this tiny editorial outfit. Yet it may also be on the verge of extinction.This is the first book to examine WikiLeaks fully and critically and its place in the contemporary news environment. The authors combine inside knowledge with the latest media research and analysis to argue that the significance of Wikileaks is that it is part of the shift in the nature of news to a network system that is contestable and unstable. Welcome to Wiki World and a new age of uncertainty.

Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. War photography is not a profession; it is a way of getting at the truth of the human condition, as close as possible to man, to his hopes and fears, his ignorance and his beliefs. This closeness may be because showing the death of others means risking one's own life. Don McCullin always understood that war is hell. His images from Vietnam, Northern Ireland, and other scenes of conflict have the beauty of classical tragedies: they speak of horror and absurdity. 64 duotone illustrations.

Maya Conquistador

Product : Maya Conquistador
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The real story of the Mayan encounter with the Spanish, based on newly revealed eyewitness accounts Our familiar images of Mexico's conquest are powerful and enduring: bold and bloodthirsty Spanish conquistadors; nobly savage Aztecs lamenting their broken bones and spears; the battles of Cortes and Montezuma; enormous pyramids and exquisite gold and jade ornaments unearthed in "the land of the sun." But one story has not yet been told--and it is one that could reshape our entire vision of the conquest. It is the story of the Spanish creation of a colony in the Yucatan, home of the Maya since ancient times. Maya Conquistador tells this tale through a collection of unique firsthand accounts--most of them previously untranslated from the original Mayan hieroglyphs--written from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. In it are surprising twists: the conquistadors are not Spaniards, but Mayas reconstructing their own sophisticated governance and society; and the conquest is not one event, but a story of the survival of a vital and complex civilization evolving over centuries of contact with the Spanish and other peoples. Out of this new chapter in history, the Maya emerge not as passive victims of the Spanish, but as astute observers of their own past and participants in a rich tradition of cultural resilience. Their story is exciting reading to all who are fascinated by the Maya, and it offers rare insight to anthropologists, historians, and students of Mayan and Mexican civilization. "The author's scholarly introduction puts the texts in proper perspective, making this a book for both specialists and anyone interested in ancient civilizations." --Dallas MorningNews

Lacanian Psychotherapy with Children: The Broken Piano

Product : Lacanian Psychotherapy with Children: The Broken Piano
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In a groundbreaking integration of the work of Lacan, Winnicott, and Tustin, Catherine Mathelin reveals how a child's symptoms can be a striking reflection of its parents' unresolved conflicts. She shows how her patients' art, much of it reproduced here, can communicate both initial anguish and progress in treatment, and draws on her experience of working on a neonatal unit to argue compellingly that a child's mental health can be endangered even before birth. "This is a book hard to put down, filled with the most fascinating brief case vignettes of parents and children who live in worlds disconnected from each other, hoping for experts to heal their suffering." -Anni Bergman, coauthor of "The Psychological Birth of the Human Infant"

Spatial Inequality and Development

Product : Spatial Inequality and Development
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What exactly is spatial inequality? Why does it matter? And what should be the policy response to it? These questions have become important in recent years as the spatial dimensions of inequality have begun to attract considerable policy interest. In China, Russia, India, Mexico, and South Africa, as well as most other developing and transition economies, spatial and regional inequality - of economic activity, incomes, and social indicators - is on the increase. Spatial inequality is a dimension of overall inequality, but it has added significance when spatial and regional divisions align with political and ethnic tensions to undermine social and political stability. Also important in the policy debate is a perceived sense that increasing internal spatial inequality is related to greater openness of economies, and to globalization in general. Despite these important concerns, there is remarkably little systematic documentation of what has happened to spatial and regional inequality over the last twenty years. Correspondingly, there is insufficient understanding of the determinants of internal spatial inequality. This volume attempts to answer the questions posed above, drawing on data from twenty-five countries from all regions of the world. They bring together perspectives and expertise in development economics and in economic geography and form a well-researched introduction to an area of growing analytical and policy importance.

Stichus. Trinummus. Truculentus. Tale of a Travelling Bag. Fragments

Product : Stichus. Trinummus. Truculentus. Tale of a Travelling Bag. Fragments
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Plautus (Titus Maccius), born about 254 BCE at Sarsina in Umbria, went to Rome, engaged in work connected with the stage, lost his money in commerce, then turned to writing comedies. Twenty-one plays by Plautus have survived (one is incomplete). The basis of all is a free translation from comedies by such writers as Menander, Diphilus, and Philemon. So we have Greek manners of Athens about 300-250 BCE transferred to the Roman stage of about 225-185, with Greek places, people, and customs, for popular amusement in a Latin city whose own culture was not yet developed and whose manners were more severe. To make his plays live for his audience, Plautus included many Roman details, especially concerning slavery, military affairs, and law, with some invention of his own, notably in management of metres. The resulting mixture is lively, genial and humorous, with good dialogue and vivid style. There are plays of intrigue ("Two Bacchises, The Haunted House, Pseudolus"); of intrigue with a recognition theme ("The Captives, The Carthaginian, Curculio"); plays which develop character ("The Pot of Gold, Miles Gloriosus"); others which turn on mistaken identity (accidental as in the "Menaechmi"; caused on purpose as in" Amphitryon"); plays of domestic life ("The Merchant, Casina, " both unpleasant; "Trinummus, Stichus, " both pleasant). The Loeb Classical Library edition of Plautus is in five volumes.

Description : "2 March 1810 . . . Today, I fell in love." At the age of ten, Miranda Cheever showed no signs of Great Beauty. And even at ten, Miranda learned to accept the expectations society held for her--until the afternoon when Nigel Bevelstoke, the handsome and dashing Viscount Turner, solemnly kissed her hand and promised her that one day she would grow into herself, that one day she would be as beautiful as she already was smart. And even at ten, Miranda knew she would love him forever. But the years that followed were as cruel to Turner as they were kind to Miranda. She is as intriguing as the viscount boldly predicted on that memorable day--while he is a lonely, bitter man, crushed by a devastating loss. But Miranda has never forgotten the truth she set down on paper all those years earlier--and she will not allow the love that is her destiny to slip lightly through her fingers . . .

The Hogan Way: How to Apply Ben Hogan's Exceptional Swing and Shotmaking Genius to Your Own Game

Product : The Hogan Way: How to Apply Ben Hogan's Exceptional Swing and Shotmaking Genius to Your Own Game
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the same way that magicians are intrigued by Houdini, golfers look to Ben Hogan as the Ultimate golfing genius; the most skillful swinger and shotmaker of all time and the master of the power-fade shot." -- John Andrisani Hogan was a player whose ball-striking ability was so precise that he literally wore down the grooves in the sweet spot of the clubface. He would concentrate so intensely during play that he could look straight through other competitors, spectators, and even his wife. He was a highly disciplined professional who practiced so diligently before and after competitive rounds that he made his palms bleed and turned the skin to leather. He was Mr. Ben Hogan, the man who, of all golf professionals past and present, had the most influence on the game's techniques since Bobby Jones. In "The Hogan Way," acclaimed author and former golf teacher and senior instruction editor of "GOLF Magazine John Andrisani analyzes every aspect of Hogan's techniques to help you improve your game faster than ever before. Tapping into the talent of a shotmaking genius-the purest striker of a golf ball that ever lived--Andrisani shows how to apply the secrets of Hogan's setup and swing to your own game using today's technologically advanced clubs. As he traces the history of Hogan's commanding swing, Andrisani makes clear which aspects of Hogan's style are worth imitating and which ones are not. Most importantly, this invaluable guide reveals secrets about the Hogan techniques that have never been shared before, including how he shaved strokes off his score and hit his trademark power-fade shot. Here, too, are insights into the master's golfing mind, his practice approach, and hisunique course-management skills. Filled with rare photographs and illustrations that demonstrate the extra-special qualities of Hogan's shotmaking methods, "The Hogan Way is your essential handbook for playing good golf.

Coming Up Roses: The Broadway Musical in the 1950s

Product : Coming Up Roses: The Broadway Musical in the 1950s
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The 1950s saw an explosion in the American musical theater. The Broadway show, catapulted into the limelight in the 20s and solidified during the 40s thanks to Rodgers and Hammerstein, now entered its most revolutionary phase, brashly redefining itself and forging a new kind of storytelling. In Coming Up Roses: The Broadway Musical in the 1950s, Ethan Mordden gives us a guided tour of this rich decade. With loving detail, Mordden highlights the shift in Broadway from shows that were mere star vehicles, showcasing a big-name talent, to the bolder stories, stuffed with character and atmosphere. During this period, subject matter became more intricate, even controversial, and plots more human and complex; Mordden demonstrates how, in response, musical conventions were polished, writing became more finely crafted, and dance became truly indispensable. Along the way we meet the key players: such greats as Ethel Merman, George Abbott, Jerome Robbins, Gwen Verdon, Bob Fosse, Stephen Sondheim, Frank Loesser, Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, and many others. We get the backstage scoop on why Guys and Dolls is so well-made, why West Side Story is so timeless, why The King and I and Gypsy pushed the envelope, and why no one ever talks about Ankles Aweigh. All this is peppered with a dash of industry gossip--the directorial struggles, last-minute script rewrites and cast replacements, the power of the poster listings--that made Broadway so nerve-wrackingly vibrant. This passionate and informed study illuminates a crucial period in American musical theater and shows us the origins of many of the musicals recently revived to huge success on Broadway.

The Culture of the New Capitalism

Product : The Culture of the New Capitalism
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The distinguished sociologist Richard Sennett surveys major differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global, more febrile, ever more mutable version of capitalism that is taking its place. He shows how these changes affect everyday life--how the work ethic is changing; how new beliefs about merit and talent displace old values of craftsmanship and achievement; how what Sennett calls "the specter of uselessness" haunts professionals as well as manual workers; how the boundary between consumption and politics is dissolving.In recent years, reformers of both private and public institutions have preached that flexible, global corporations provide a model of freedom for individuals, unlike the experience of fixed and static bureaucracies Max Weber once called an "iron cage." Sennett argues that, in banishing old ills, the new-economy model has created new social and emotional traumas. Only a certain kind of human being can prosper in unstable, fragmentary institutions: the culture of the new capitalism demands an ideal self oriented to the short term, focused on potential ability rather than accomplishment, willing to discount or abandon past experience. In a concluding section, Sennett examines a more durable form of self hood, and what practical initiatives could counter the pernicious effects of "reform."

Complicity with Evil: The United Nations in the Age of Modern Genocide

Product : Complicity with Evil: The United Nations in the Age of Modern Genocide
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the killing fields of Rwanda and Srebrenica a decade ago to those of Darfur today, the United Nations has repeatedly failed to confront genocide. This is evinced, author and journalist Adam LeBor maintains, in a May 1995 document from Yasushi Akashi, the most senior UN official in the field during the Yugoslav wars, in which he refused to authorize air strikes against the Serbs for fear they would "weaken" Milosevic. More recently, in 2003, urgent reports from UN officials in the Sudan detailing atrocities from Darfur were ignored for a year because they were politically inconvenient. This book is the first to examine in detail the crucial role of the Secretariat, its relationship with the Security Council, and the failure of UN officials themselves to confront genocide. LeBor argues the UN must return to its founding principles, take a moral stand and set the agenda of the Security Council instead of merely following the lead of the great powers. LeBor draws on dozens of firsthand interviews with UN officials, current and former, and such international diplomats as Madeleine Albright, Richard Holbrooke, Douglas Hurd, and David Owen. This book will set the terms for discussion when UN Secretary General Kofi Annan steps down to make room for a new head of the world body, and political observers assess Annan's legacy and look to the future of the world organization.

But real engineers, the people who conceive of computers and oversee their manufacture, the people who design and build information systems, cars, bridges, and airplanes, labor in obscurity. There are no engineering heroes, and we as a society are poorer for this. Like Florman's landmark book, "The Existential Pleasures of Engineering, The Introspective Engineer "is a clarion call to society. We must awaken to the reality that the quality of human life depends on increasingly creative technological solutions to the problems we face. We need cleaner, more economical engines, faster computers, more power, and a healthier planet if we are to survive. It is engineers who will lead us to this future.

At a trading fair in rural Montana, Du Pre and his longtime love Madelain run into Jeanne now worries about the disappearance of her sixteen-year-old son, Danny. Meanwhile, Du Pre befriends a musician from Fort Belknap Reservation who introduces him to disturbing parallels between the huge incidence of birth defects in the Indian population there and the activities of the persephone gold mine located near the reservation. With some reluctance, Du Pre agrees to look into both problems. But then Danny's body is found in a well, and Du Pre discovers a link between the boy's life and what goes on at Fort Belknap. Working with a doctor who's long been concerned about Persephone's practices, Du Pre dangerously confronts the indifference and recklessness of the industrial mine.

And yet modern desk dictionaries are the result of a paring away of that glory, so that merely standard, functional, current words remain.

Understanding Assisted Suicide: Nine Issues to Consider

Product : Understanding Assisted Suicide: Nine Issues to Consider
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Assisted suicide remains one of the most emotionally charged and controversial topics--and the issue isn't going away any time soon. As the baby boomer generation ages, many of us will watch as our parents--and ourselves--grow older, and wonder at the decisions that lie ahead. "Understanding Assisted Suicide" provides both a fresh take on this important topic and the framework for intelligent participation in the discussion. Uniquely, the author frames the issue using his own experience watching both his parents die, which led him to ask fundamental questions about death, dying, religion, and the role of medicine and technology in alleviating human suffering. In concerns about assisted suicide, each person's "big picture" has largely been created out of picking and choosing from nine separate snapshot albums. Understanding this offers a perspective for quickly determining the sources of another's opinion on assisted suicide, as well as the issues they are not considering. Most importantly, "Understanding Assisted Suicide" offers a clear, easy-to-traverse landscape over which those who are sincerely looking for their own answers can navigate. The "nine-issue structure" allows both careful exploration of separate issues and a view of the full spectrum of ideas involved.

The New Autonomous House: Design and Planning for Sustainability

Product : The New Autonomous House: Design and Planning for Sustainability
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1975 Brenda and Robert Vale published The Autonomous House, a manifesto offering down-to-earth suggestions for building homes that do not pollute the earth or squander its resources. Their book received tremendous praise around the world and was seen as a significant move toward green architecture. Nearly twenty years later, in the early 1990s, the Vales decided to turn their groundbreaking ideas into reality. The New Autonomous House records their building of a house on the principles of sustainable resources in the small town of Southwell in the British Midlands. As specialists in green architecture, the Vales sought to create an environmentally friendly four-bedroom house that was neither exotic in appearance nor difficult to maintain. They document the philosophy, design, and construction of a building that can produce power from the sun and obtain drinking water from the rain. The New Autonomous House has a simple but revolutionary message: It is possible to live in an inexpensive house that is kind to the planet and liberates its owner from utility bills. The Vales provide a thought-provoking, practical solution to the environmental problems caused by the houses in which we live, a blueprint of green architecture for future generations.

Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House: Being the Sixth Jane Austen Mystery

Product : Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House: Being the Sixth Jane Austen Mystery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In her sixth engrossing outing, Jane Austen employs her delicious wit and family ties to the Royal Navy in a case of murder on the high seas. Somewhere in the picturesque British port of Southampton, among a crew of colorful, eccentric, and fiercely individual souls, a killer has come ashore. And only Jane can fathom the depths of his ruthless mind.... Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House "I will assert that sailors are endowed with greater worth than any set of men in England." So muses Jane Austen as she stands in the buffeting wind of Southampton's quay beside her brother Frank on a raw February morning. Frank, a post captain in the Royal Navy, is without a ship to command, and his best prospect is the "Stella Maris," a fast frigate captained by his old friend Tom Seagrave. "Lucky" Tom -- so dubbed for his habit of besting enemy ships -- is presently in disgrace, charged with violating the Articles of War. Tom's first lieutenant, Eustace Chessyre, has accused Seagrave of murder in the death of a French captain after the surrender of his ship. Though Lucky Tom denies the charge, his dagger was found in the dead man's chest. Now Seagrave faces court-martial and execution for a crime he swears he did not commit. Frank, deeply grieved, is certain his friend will hang. But Jane reasons that either Seagrave or Chessyre is lying -- and that she and Frank have a duty to discover the truth. The search for the captain's honor carries them into the troubled heart of Seagrave's family, through some of the seaport's worst sinkholes, and at long last to Wool House, the barred brick structure that serves as gaol for French prisoners of war. Risking contagion orworse, Jane agrees to nurse the murdered French captain's imprisoned crew -- and elicits a debonair surgeon's account of the "Stella Maris"'s battle that appears to clear Tom Seagrave of all guilt. When Eustace Chessyre is found murdered, the entire affair takes on the appearance of an insidious plot against Seagrave, who is charged with the crime. Could any of his naval colleagues wish him dead? In an era of turbulent intrigue and contested amour, could it be a case of "cherchez la femme" ... or a veiled political foe at work? And what of the sealed orders under which Seagrave embarked that fateful night in the "Stella Maris?" Death knocks again at Jane's own door before the final knots in the killer's net are completely untangled. Always surprising, Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House is an intelligent and intriguing mystery that introduces Jane and her readers to "the naval set" -- and charts a true course through the amateur sleuth's most troubled waters yet.

Description : New Englanders are always cursing. But a colorful profanity uttered by some sterotypically tactiturn old Yankee is usually more humorous than menacing. Yet, true maledictions (the opposite of benedicitons) have frequently been spoken on New England soil, curses intended to invoke evil, injury, or total destruction against other people. Stories about preternatural revenge are numerous in Yankee lore, with each New England state providing its favorites. Some are well known, at least regionally. Others are nearly forgotten. Within these pages, renowned storyteller Joseph A. Citro vividly brings these tales to life, letting us decide if these tales of woe were bad luck or ... something else.

Surviving pogroms and politburos, he has solved crimes, mostly in spite of the powers that be that rule his world. In "People Who Walk in Darkness, "Rostnikov travels to Siberia to investigate a murder at a diamond mine, where he discovers an old secret...and an even older personal problem. His compatriots head to Kiev on a trail of smuggled diamonds and kidnapped guest workers...and what they discover leads them to a vast conspiracy that not only has international repercussions but threatens them on a very personal level. """" "People Who Walk in Darkness" is a fast-paced novel of modern Russia told by one of mystery's finest storytellers.

I Never Saw Paris: A Novel of the Afterlife

Product : I Never Saw Paris: A Novel of the Afterlife
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On his way to a department store in Manhattan, 64-year-old businessman, Irving Caldman, is waiting at the intersection of Park Avenue with three other pedestrians, when a driver jumps the curb and runs them all over. The next thing Irving knows, he is no longer preparing for a trip to Paris with his wife. Instead, he is watching four faces as they ascend to heaven, on their way to be greeted by the angel Malakh. Accompanying Irving are an attractive personal shopper in her early fifties; a grandmother who works as a housemaid nearby; a twentysomething man who is an interior decorator; and the driver, a candy store owner and widower. Bound together for a week with Malakh, before their souls will be allowed to move on for judgment, Irving and his fellow victims must all tell the group their life stories, in order to evaluate and justify their earthly existence. As their insecurities and deepest secrets are exposed, they argue at length, and yet come to a strange peace, in this unexpected parable. I Never Saw Paris is a funny, moving, and thought-provoking look at the foibles and follies of an improbable group of New Yorkers.
