Dragon and Soldier

Product : Dragon and Soldier
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Dragon and Thief," the first novel in the Dragonback series, was named an American Library Association Best Book For Young Adults. The second novel, "Dragon and Soldier" is another fast-paced, compulsively readable SF adventure featuring an odd couple of reluctant partners on an unusual quest. Draycos, a golden-scaled draconic K'da poet-warrior, was on a scout fleet ship when it was attacked, with him the lone survivor. Forced to find a new symbiotic humanoid host, he found Jack Morgan. Jack has been on his own, making his way by shipping interstellar cargo on the ship he's inherited from his Uncle Virgil, a con-man and thief who met with a fatal accident. Draycos has vowed to uncover those behind a vast conspiracy to wipe out his people, while Jack is determined to find out who framed him for a crime he didn't commit. Virgil, who survives as "Uncle Virge" in the ship's computer, is against their plan. But Draycos once saved Jack's life, so Jack feels an obligation to this strange creature who can slip onto the boy's skin, pressing against it like a living tattoo. Knowing that mercenaries were involved in the ambush that killed Draycos's fleet, Jack enlists in a mercenary outfit that practically enslaves adolescent recruits. But the soldier's life isn't exactly what Jack had bargained for, especially when a mysterious girl is recruited into his group. Strange things are happening, and people and events are not always as they seem.

What Is America?: A Short History of the New World Order

Product : What Is America?: A Short History of the New World Order
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the six years since 9/11, as the bush regime has squandered domestic solidarity and international goodwill, many of the archetypes and ideals with which we've traditionally framed the American enterprise now seem endangered, even hollow. This raises the question, has America ever been what it thinks it is? "What Is America?" goes to the heart of that inquiry. Ranging with dazzling expertise through anthropology, history, and literature, Wright reconfigures our self-perception, arguing that the "essence" of America can be traced to the foundations of our history-literally to the collision of worlds that began in 1492, as one civilization subsumed another-and exploring how these currents continue to shape our world.

The World of the Ancient Maya, Second Edition

Product : The World of the Ancient Maya, Second Edition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since it was first published in 1981, The World of the Ancient Maya has established itself as an extraordinarily accomplished -- comprehensive, elegantly written, and concise -- introduction to the rich Maya culture. In this edition, John S. Henderson has thoroughly revised the text and added a wealth of new photographs and drawings. Henderson explores the entire Maya cultural tradition, from the earliest traces of settlement through the period of the Spanish conquest in the sixteenth century. The ancient Mayas were the only fully literate precolumbian people in the Americas, and Henderson incorporates deciphered Maya texts in his reconstruction of ancient Maya societies. Superb scientists, the Mayas developed a very sophisticated mathematics and an intricate and accurate calendar system. Theirs was one of the few complex societies to emerge in and to adapt successfully to a tropical forest environment. Their architecture, sculpture, and painting were sophisticated and compellingly beautiful. Henderson's wide-ranging and judiciously balanced account treats diverse aspects of the Maya world, including religion and philosophy, the environments of the various Maya peoples, and their links with neighbors and relatives in the area. Throughout, he considers the interaction among Maya societies and stresses the importance of the cultural variations from region to region, as well as the common Maya heritage.

Him/Her/Self: Gender Identities in Modern America

Product : Him/Her/Self: Gender Identities in Modern America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When first published in 1975, Him/Her/Self was a pathbreaking book. At a time when scholars were just beginning to explore women's history, Peter Filene expanded his inquiry to include both both genders. He was the first to claim the men, too, had a history grounded in gendered experience. Since then much has changed, not only in the lives and attitudes of American men and women, but in the ways that historians think about gender. But Him/Her/Self remains the only book that analyzes the interactions between American men and women comprehensively during the past century. In this third edition, Filene brings his concise and forceful analysis of 20th-century gender history up to the present. He describes the new men's movements of the 1980s and 1990s, ranging from pro-feminist to anti-feminist. He expands his discussion of the gay and lesbian experience, especially in the years since AIDS. He assesses the women's movement, weighing both its achievements and the antifeminist reactions of the past quarter-century. Finally, he enlarges the conceptual scope of the book, focusing not only on social roles of men and women but also on their dynamic sense of identity -- of self in historical time. "When Him/Her/Self first appeared, women's history was in its infancy. Gender as a category of analysis was barely a glow on the scholarly horizon, and the idea that manhood was a topic of historical investigation was practically unimagined. In that early dawn of feminist scholarship, Peter Filene's pioneering work was a godsend. It was essential reading for both undergraduate and graduate students eager to understand the workings of gender in history and desperate for models of scholarship that broke the mold of 'traditional' historical writing. Peter Filene's path breaking study did both." -- Elaine Tyler May, from the Foreword

The Bridge at No Gun Ri: A Hidden Nightmare from the Korean War

Product : The Bridge at No Gun Ri: A Hidden Nightmare from the Korean War
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The untold human story of a massacre of Korean civilians by American soldiers in the early days of the Korean War, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists who uncovered it In the fall of 1999, a team of Associated Press investigative reporters broke the news that U.S. troops had massacred a large group of South Korean civilians early in the Korean War. On the eve of that pivotal war's 50th anniversary, their reports brought to light a story that had been supressed for decades, confirming allegations the U.S. military had sought to dismiss. It made headlines around the world. In "The Bridge at No Gun Ri," the team tells the larger, human story behind the incident through the eyes of the people who survived it: on the American side, the green recruits of the "good time" U.S. occupation army in Japan made up of teenagers who viewed unarmed farmers as enemies and generals who had never led men into battle; on the Korean side, the peasant families forced to flee their ancestral village caught between the invading North Koreans and the U.S. Army. The narrative looks at victims both Korean and American; at the ordinary lives and high-level decisions that led to the fatal encounter; at the terror of the three-day slaughter; at the memories and ghosts that forever haunted the survivors. The story of No Gun Ri also illuminates the larger story of the Korean War-also known as the Forgotten War-and how an arbitrary decision to divide the country in 1945 led to the first armed conflict of the Cold War.

The Child That Books Built: A Life in Reading

Product : The Child That Books Built: A Life in Reading
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A wise and tender tribute to childhood reading and the power of fiction In this extended love letter to children's books and the wonders they perform, Francis Spufford makes a confession: books were his mother, his father, his school. Reading made him who he is. To understand the thrall of fiction, Spufford goes back to his earliest encounters with books, exploring such beloved classics as "The Wind in the Willows, The Little House on the Prairie," and the Narnia chronicles. He re-creates the excitement of discovery, writing joyfully of the moment when fuzzy marks on a page become words, which then reveal . . . a dragon. Weaving together child development, personal reflection, and social observation, Spufford shows the force of fiction in shaping a child: how stories allow for escape from pain and for mastery of the world, how they shift our boundaries of the sayable, how they stretch the chambers of our imagination. Fired by humanity, curiosity, and humor, "The Child That Books Built" confirms Spufford as a profound and original thinker, evoking in the process the marvel of reading as if for the first time.

Modern American Usage

Product : Modern American Usage
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A classic since its first edition in 1966, "Modern American Usage" has been called a book that "every literate American ought to read." Now fully revised and brought up-to-date, this one-volume course in good writing brims with helpful answers--large and small--for readers who want to use English clearly, naturally, and correctly. Alphabetical for easy consulting (and full of cross-references), the book carries the reader to the entry that explains a troublesome word or phrase--and shows how to use or avoid it. Every page offers natural ways to avoid saying or writing the vague, the long-winded, the needlessly technical, and the hopelessly stale. With verve and eloquence, Erik Wensberg spears the empty words that clog clear thought--"impact," "frustrated," "basically," and many more--and offers us good English words that are definite and have more life. Offering standards by which to judge language now and in the future, Modern American Usage takes account of a generation of changes in American idiom and of attempts to reform the use of pronouns, titles, and phrases to fit shifting ideals of social justice. All this it does with easy learning and with sympathy alike for the experienced writer and for those who come new to American English.

The Craft of Dying: The Modern Face of Death

Product : The Craft of Dying: The Modern Face of Death
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Boucher, a Catholic writer with catholic interests and enthusiasms, wrote short mysteries delving into "religion, opera, football, politics, movies, true crime, record collecting, and an abundance of good food and wine along with clues and puzzles and deductions."--Francis M. Nevins, Jr., from his Introduction Most Boucher stories feature brilliant amateur detectives; these are tales of ra-tiocination in which a splendid quirky intellectual assembles clues and solves mysteries, almost always in time to stop further violence, often without leaving the native habitat to visit the scene of the crime. The first part of this book--"An En-nead of Nobles"--contains nine stories exhibiting the deductive powers of Nick Noble: Lieutenant MacDonald explained about Nick Noble as they drove. "No-body knows where he lives or what he lives on. All we know is that we can find him at a little joint on North Main, drinking cheap sherry by the water glass. Sherry's all that life has left him--that, and the ability to make the toughest problem come crystal clear." The second section--"Conundrums for the Cloister"--shows the vast reason-ing power and deep human under-standing of Sister Ursula, whose early ill health forced her from a police career into a nunnery. "Quiet, simple, human, with the unobtrusive but intense inner glow of the devotional life," she is the nun vari-ant of G. K. Chesterton's immortal Fa-ther Brown. "Jeux de Meurtre," the third section, contains nonseries stories, some narrated by the cops and amateurs who solve the puzzle, some even by the murderers themselves.

Queen Elizabeth I

Product : Queen Elizabeth I
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Queen Elizabeth I, the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, reigned from 1558 until her death in 1603 and is remembered not only as a powerful, often ruthless and successful monarch but also as a virtuous, gracious, and caring ruler. This new biography of Elizabeth I, by a leading scholar, reveals a tough and determined "Virgin Queen," whose education, wit, and wisdom enabled her to succeed in the often turbulent and hostile world of her reign. Charting Elizabeth's childhood, schooling, and family life as well as her relationships with her ministers and suitors, Susan Doran discusses her motivation and the personal qualities that sustained her as queen. Her years in power were often dominated by political intrigue, marriage proposals, disputes over the succession, plots against her life, and warfare. Elizabeth made clever use of events, such as the defeat of the Spanish Armada, and unique interests and attributes, such as her love of theatrical pageant, to enhance her reputation and status. In an era of political and religious upheaval, Elizabeth I emerges as one of the most skillful and formidable monarchs in history. Illustrated throughout with portraits, rare historical documents, and letters in Elizabeth's own hand, this book provides an engaging, authoritative account of Queen Elizabeth I's life and times.

Archyology II (the Final Dig): The Long Lost Tales of Archy and Mehitabel

Product : Archyology II (the Final Dig): The Long Lost Tales of Archy and Mehitabel
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this second and final volume "composed" by archy, the literary cockroach, the wonderfully whimsical insect and his fractious feline friend, mehitabel, engage in misadventures large and small and comment with quirky accuracy on the common state of humanity. Previously unpublished in book form and literally recovered from a steamer trunk by editor Jeff Adams, these stories are the product of Don Marquis, a New York columnist and raconteur who was one of America's most popular humorists during the early twentieth century. archy supposedly worked at Marquis's newsroom typewriter at night, diving headfirst onto individual keys to tap out columns; unable to use the shift key, of course, archy settled for lower-case letters and dispensed with punctuation entirely. Ungrammatical as they may be, archy's wry insights are a true delight, for, as he puts it, "one advantage of being a cockroach is that i see things from the under side." From that unique perspective we follow the continuing saga of archy, the Cockroach Detective, a spoof on the gumshoe genre in which the six-legged private eye encounters a raja, his chorus-girl harem, Bolshevist twins, an Egyptologist, seven sister manicurists, and a set of bejeweled false teeth. In other episodes archy saves the US fleet from a German U-boat attack, muses with a spider about humanity's inhumanity to insects, stows away on a freighter to London, and climbs to the top of the Washington Monument. In the Capitol building itself, archy says, "there is no attention paid to me because there are so many other insects around it gives you a great idea of the american people when you see some of the things they elect." The Ku Klux Klan, he observes elsewhere, "is going strong and the national emblem will soon be the great american kleagle." Meanwhile, mehitabel, who claims to be a reincarnation of Cleopatra, offers to hire hit-cats to clean up City Hall, not of rats but of reporters. Accompanied by the inspired drawings of cartoonist Ed Frascino, these new archy tales are, Adams writes, "classic American humor, as vivid and amusing today as they were decades ago."

Labor Pain: A Natural Approach to Easing Delivery

Product : Labor Pain: A Natural Approach to Easing Delivery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Nicky Wesson shows how natural alternatives can provide effective pain relief during labor and childbirth without dangerous side effects for mother and baby. - Conventional medicines provided for pain relief during childbirth can have adverse effects on the baby. - Offers many options for effective natural pain relief, including acupressure and acupuncture, hydrotherapy, herbal remedies, aromatherapy and massage, relaxation techniques, homeopathy, and reflexology. - By the author of "Natural Mothering" and "Enhancing Fertility Naturally." Every woman's experience of labor is different, but nearly all women find labor painful to some degree. Conventional medicine offers numerous pharmacological methods for pain relief, but recent studies on babies whose mothers received pain-relieving drugs during labor demonstrate various adverse effects, including central nervous system damage, impaired sensory and motor responses, slower development, and problems with feeding. As of yet, no long-term studies have been conducted on the effects of the drugs commonly used in epidurals on the fetus or on the child's postnatal development. Fortunately, there are alternative ways to relieve the pain of childbirth. Few can remove the pain completely, but it can become bearable without the threat of dangerous side effects to mother and baby. Nicky Wesson, childbirth teacher and mother of six, fully explains the physical and psychological processes of labor and covers issues relevant to birthing at home or in a hospital. She offers many options for effective natural pain relief, including acupressure and acupuncture, hydrotherapy, herbal remedies, aromatherapy and massage, relaxation techniques, homeopathy, and reflexology. An essential guide for every pregnant woman, Labor Pain provides you with the information you need to prepare for this transformative event.

The Lovers of Algeria

Product : The Lovers of Algeria
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A breathless story of love and survival in war-torn Algeria-past and presentThe devil has entered our country, and his footprints are everywhere.Nine-year-old Jallal is old enough to know that his life in Algeria is precarious at best. Having run away from home, he survives by selling peanuts and single cigarettes on the street. The proposal by the elderly Swiss woman named Anna is shocking and preposterous: go to the mountains with her, as a translator, so she can find her lost lover from decades ago and pray over the graves of their murdered children. Anna and Jallal's journey is wrought with danger and unspeakable tragedy. It was under similar circumstances that Anna first met the Arab Nasreddine. Ousted from the traveling circus where she performed as a trapeze artist, she had little choice but to accept Nasreddine's dangerous offer to live with him in a makeshift tent. But it was here, amid poverty, racism, and terrifyingly random violence, that they fell in love. A best seller in France, "The Lovers of Algeria" is an unflinchingly candid story about a country where terrorism and government corruption are commonplace. As Anna and Nasreddine, beaten by time and memory, circle each other in Algeria, Anouar Benmalek shows with heart-wrenching detail that love can endure even the most inhuman conditions.A Lannan Translation Series Selection

The hostility, the hurt, is all too human.

In all the stories, Allen calibrates the mounting tension with exquisite timing, in mesmerizing prose that has won him comparisons with Joyce and Faulkner. "Holding Pattern "is a captivating collection by a prodigiously talented writer.

Description : Our form of government, our traditions, our present interests, and our future welfare, all forbid our entering upon a career of conquest, argued William Jennings Bryan, Colin Powell's predecessor as America's Secretary of State. American anti-imperialist tradition dates back to before the Declaration of Independence: Presidents Washington and Jefferson warned against imperialism in their farewell addresses to the country, Abraham Lincoln led the fight in Congress against wars of conquest, Henry David Thoreau spent his celebrated night in jail as part of a protest against an imperialist war, and Frederick Douglass, Jr., and Dr. W. E. B. Du Bois wrote extensively on expansionism. As the Bush administration seeks to spread American influence further than ever before, more Americans are asking whether imperialism threatens to destroy not just distant lands but the United States itself. Against the Beast collects the writings, speeches, comments, and cartoons of American anti-imperialist campaigners from four centuries, making the case that this finest of American traditions must be respected and renewed.

Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline

Product : Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Carolina Panthers shocked the NFL in 2003. Only two seasons removed from a disastrous 1-15 season, they won three straight playoff games and roared all the way to their first-ever Super Bowl appearance before losing in the final seconds in one of the best Super Bowls ever played. Tales from the Carolina Panther's Sideline is the behind-the-scenes story not only of that extraordinary Panthers team, but also of the men who have shaped Carolina's past and will determine its future. Jake Delhomme, Steve Smith, Sam Mills, John Fox, Mike Rucker, Kevin Donnalley, Bill Rosinski, and many others sat down for exclusive interviews with author Scott Fowler, ensuring that there are many stories about the Panthers that readers have never heard before. From Delhomme's brief stint as a karaoke singer to the reason Steve Smith walks to every Panthers home game to the real story about Mill's courageous battle with cancer, Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline brings the Panther's biggest stars into vivid focus. Says Tony Kornheiser, star of ESPN's Pardon the Interruption: "The Carolina Panthers captured our imagination like no other sports team in 2003. This team has an incredible story that must be told--and nobody can tell it as well as Scott Flower." Not just a celebration of the Panthers' 2003 seasons, Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline also features anecdotes about the Panthers' early years. From the team's birth in 1995, a host of memorable characters has passed through the locker room. They include a future reality TV star, a head coach who kept his distance from everyone, and a player who loved to saunter in on Sundays wearing platform heels and a fur coat. Bulging with bite-sizedanecdotes both funny and poignant, this book is a must-read for every Carolina Panthers fan. It is a fun-filled, unforgettable look at a team that has risen to the top of the NFL--and one poised to remain there for years to come.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A psychologist and renowned workshop leader shows women how to live an authentic life by accessing their Inner Voice in order to reclaim their true selves. It is every woman's birthright to live from her true self. In this groundbreaking book, psychologist Helene G. Brenner challenges the conventional wisdom of psychological self-help books that tell readers to "improve" themselves and change their thoughts and belief systems. The key to transformation, she explains, is not self-improvement, but self-acceptance-affirming and validating what we truly feel and experience and who we already are. Dr. Brenner teaches women how to listen to what their own inner selves are already telling them, so that they are guided from within to make deep and lasting changes and become the women they were born to be. In this empowering, step-by-step guide, filled with compassion and wisdom, readers will discover: * The ABCs of the Inner Voice-acknowledgment, being (with), and compassion * The five pathways to the Inner Voice-knowing, feeling, sensing, wanting, and the voice of the spiritual guide within * How to tune out "outside voices" and tune in to your inner truth * Why trying to "improve" yourself doesn't work * "Innercizes" to help you get in touch with your Inner Voice * How to follow your Inner Voice to vastly improve your relationships and create a life that fulfills your inner being Featuring dozens of case studies addressing women's most core psychological dilemmas, and building upon their strengths, "I Know I'm in There Somewhere" gives women a whole new way of feeling about themselves and a new way of navigating through the challenges of living in our times.This is truly a psychological guidebook for women in the twenty-first century.

Nuclear Power Is Not the Answer

Product : Nuclear Power Is Not the Answer
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The world-renowned antinuclear activist's myth-busting look at the real costs and consequences of nuclear energy. ""Dr. Caldicott is one of the most articulate and passionate advocates of citizen action to remedy the nuclear and environmental crises.""--from the citation for the 2003 Lannan Cultural Freedom Prize In a world torn apart by wars over oil, many politicians are increasingly looking for alternative sources of energy--and their leading choice is often nuclear. Among the myths that have been spread over the years about nuclear-powered electricity are that it does not cause global warming or pollution (i.e., that it is "clean and green"), that it is inexpensive, and that it is safe. But the facts belie the barrage of nuclear industry propaganda: - Nuclear power contributes to global warming - The real costs of nuclear power are prohibitive (and taxpayers pick up most of them) - There's not enough uranium in the world to sustain long-term nuclear power - Potential for a catastrophic accident or terrorist attack far outweighs any benefits. Trained as a physician, and--after four decades of antinuclear activism--thoroughly versed in the science of nuclear energy, the bestselling author of "Nuclear Madness" and "Missile Envy" here turns her attention from nuclear bombs to nuclear lightbulbs. As she makes meticulously clear in this damning book, the world cannot withstand either.

Au Revoir to All That: Food, Wine, and the End of France

Product : Au Revoir to All That: Food, Wine, and the End of France
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A rich, lively book about the upheaval in French gastronomy, set against the backdrop of France's diminished fortunes as a nation. France is in a rut, and so is French cuisine. Twenty-five years ago it was hard to have a bad meal there; today it's difficult to find a good one. An unmistakable whiff of decline emanates from its kitchens, and many believe that London, Spain, and New York are more exciting places to eat. Parisian bistros and brasseries are disappearing at an alarming rate; large segments of France's wine industry are in crisis; many artisanal products are threatened with extinction. But astonishingly, business is good for McDonald's: France has become its second-most profitable market in the world. How this happened and what is being done to revive the gastronomic arts in France are the questions at the heart of this book. Steinberger meets top chefs, winemakers, farmers, bakers, and other artisans, interviews the head of McDonald's Europe, marches down a Paris boulevard with "alter-globalization" activist Jose Bove, and breaks bread with the editorial director of the very powerful and secretive Michelin Guide. The result is a striking portrait of a cuisine and a country in transition.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : At the French Culinary Institute, Lauren Shockey learned to salt food properly, cook fearlessly over high heat, and knock back beers like a pro. But she also discovered that her real culinary education wouldn't begin until she actually worked in a restaurant. After a somewhat disappointing apprenticeship in the French provinces, Shockey hatched a plan for her dream year: to apprentice in four high-end restaurants around the world. She started in her hometown of New York City under the famed chef Wylie Dufresne at the molecular gastronomy hotspot wd-50, then traveled to Vietnam, Israel, and back to France. From the ribald kitchen humor to fiery-tempered workers to tasks ranging from the mundane (mincing cases of shallots) to the extraordinary (cooking seafood on the line), Shockey shows us what really happens behind the scenes in haute cuisine, and includes original recipes integrating the techniques and flavors she learned along the way. With the dramatic backdrop of restaurant life, readers will be delighted by the adventures of a bright and restless young woman looking for her place in the world.

Product : Cuban Star: How One Negro-League Owner Changed the Face of Baseball
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A proud and boisterous Negro League team owner, Alex Pompez rose to prominence during Latino baseball’s earliest glory days. As a passionate and steadfast advocate for Latino players, he helped bring baseball into the modern age. But like many in the era of segregated baseball, Pompez also found that the game alone could never make all ends meet, and he delved headlong into the seedier side of the sport—gambling—to help finance his beloved team, the New York Cubans. He built one of the most infamous numbers rackets in Harlem, rubbing shoulders with titans of the underworld such as Dutch Schultz and eventually arousing the ire of the famed prosecutor Thomas Dewey. He also brought the Cubans, with their incredible lineup of international players, to a Negro League World Series Championship in 1947.  Pompez presided over the twilight of the Negro League, holding it together as long as possible in the face of integration even as he helped his players make the transition to the majors. In his later days as a scout, he championed some of the brightest future Latino stars and became one of Latin America’s most vocal advocates for the game.  That today’s rosters are filled with names like Rodriguez, Pujols, Rivera, and Ortiz is a testament to the influence of Pompez and his contemporaries.

Description : The Ascent of Media tells the whole story of media from its earliest incarnation in the clay tablets of Gilgamesh, through the Gutenberg press, right up to Google and the unfurling world of digital content. The Ascent of Media is a narrative history of the media in its every form, from theatre to posters to video games, and told with a host of fascinating fact and anecdote. Opening up a whole new forum for debate, Parry argues that contemporary media is not, as the doomsayers suggest, in decline, but on the cusp of a new era - one in which it will adapt, evolve and thrive. History teaches us that media cannot and do not die. This is a startling account of the mediums that inform us, shape us, move us and make us, and a rallying call to innovators of the future.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Discover the tasty stories behind the foods we love." A ham sandwich on white bread. Macaroni and cheese. Peanut-butter-and-banana roll-ups. They may sound like ordinary items, but they take us on an amazing journey through the rich history and astonishing science of food. Explore a week of lunches--from apples to pizza--by taking a romp through thousands of years of extraordinary events. Some are amusing, like the accidental invention of potato chips. Others are tragic, such as the Spice Wars, which killed thousands of people. Consider that ham sandwich: Ancient Romans first made ham by curing meat with salt and smoke to kill microbes, while yeast (which burps gas) produces the fluffy texture of bread. Aztec farmers bred tomatoes from small, bitter berries into plump, sweet fruit, and watermelons sustained travelers 10,000 years ago in the Kalahari Desert. With a vibrant design and quirky illustrations, "The World in Your Lunch Box" is like the perfect lunch: satisfying, well-balanced, and totally delicious.

And the plot leads to you and your clients, because they?ll do it by hacking into and sabotaging the oil and gas industry's computer software programs that run all its operations. And their window into the software is through your links to your clients.? Now he has to decide if he trusts her.When he decides to, that puts the two lovers in a race to discover which of his clients? computers have been compromised, who the hacker saboteurs are, then trace them back for a showdown with the plot's terrorist masterminds, all before they wind up dead.

Product : The Smartest Animals on the Planet: Extraordinary Tales of the Natural World's Cleverest Creatures
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Succinctly written and sumptuously illustrated with photographs and diagrams, this appealing book is sure to fascinate the general reader and inspire the science student considering a career in animal behavior or cognition." --Library Journal "(starred review)" This compelling book is from a world authority in animal intelligence and brings together the cumulative research relating to non-human "smart" species. It reveals how intelligent animals communicate, how they learn behavior, how they show feelings and emotions -- and for some species, how they use tools, count, and pick up a foreign language Fully illustrated with photographs and step-by-step graphics, and drawing on data from historical and current experiments and observations, the book examines intelligence in the great apes (gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans), monkeys, and a surprisingly long list of non-primate species: sea otters, eagles, elephants, dolphins, lions, whales, parrots, honeybees, beetles, rats, woodpeckers, crows, and dogs. The book's chapters are: Comparing Animal Skills and Intelligence -- with each other and with humans Animal Tool Use -- in nature, in captivity, environmental adaptation Communication in Animals -- language, intention, meaning, alarms Imitation and Social Learning -- culture, observational learning Social Cognition and Emotion -- cooperation, altruism, empathy, deception Self-recognition and Awareness -- consciousness, mirror self-recognition Numerical Abilities in Animals -- counting, uses of quantity Animals and Human Non-verbal Language -- sign language, shapes, graphic symbols. This new edition's updates reflect the massive surge in research on animal cognitiion in the last 3 years -- in companion dogs, birds, insects, stingrays and mongooses.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : For almost 400 years, between the fall of Constantinople and the Greek War of Independence, the history of Greece is shrouded in mystery, distorted by Greek writers and begging the question: What was life really like for the Greeks under Ottoman rule?  In this wide-ranging yet concise history, David Brewer explodes many of the myths about Turkish rule of Greece. He places the Greek story in wider, international context and casts fresh light on the dynamics of power not only between Greeks and Ottomans, but also between Muslims and Christians, both Orthodox and Catholic, throughout Europe. This absorbing account of a crucial period will ensure that the history of Greece under Turkish rule is no longer hidden.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In The Man Who Was Thursday we are transported to a surreal turn-of-the-century London, Gabriel Syme, a poet, is recruited to a secret anti-anarchist taskforce at Scotland Yard. Lucian Gregory, an anarchist poet, is the only poet in Saffron Park, until he loses his temper in an argument over the purpose of poetry with Gabriel Syme, who takes the opposite view. After some time, the frustrated Gregory finds Syme and leads him to a local anarchist meeting-place to prove that he is a true anarchist. Instead of the anarchist Gregory getting elected, the officer Syme uses his wits and is elected as the local representative to the worldwide Central Council of Anarchists. The Council consists of seven men, each using the name of a day of the week as a code name; Syme is given the name of Thursday. In his efforts to thwart the council's intentions, however, he discovers that five of the other six members are also undercover detectives; each was just as mysteriously employed and assigned to defeat the Council of Days. They all soon find out that they are fighting each other and not a real anarchists; such was the mastermind plan of the genius Sunday. In a dizzying and surreal conclusion, the six champions of order and former anarchist ring-leaders must chase down the disturbing and whimsical Sunday, the man who calls himself "The Peace of God."

The Rabbit Factory

Product : The Rabbit Factory
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In an ambitious narrative structure reminiscent of Robert Altman's classic film "Nashville, " Larry Brown weaves together the stories of a sprawling cast of eccentric and lovable characters, each embarked on a quest for meaning, fulfillment, and love -- with poignant and uproarious results. Set in Memphis and North Mississippi, "The Rabbit Factory" follows the colliding lives of, among others, Arthur, an older, socially ill-at-ease man of considerable wealth married to the much younger Helen, whose desperate need for satisfaction sweeps her into the arms of other men; Eric, who has run away from home thinking his father doesn't want him and becomes Arthur's unlikely surrogate son; and Anjalee, a big-hearted prostitute with her own set of troubles who crashes into the lives of the others like a one-woman hurricane. Teeming with pitch-perfect creations that include quirky gangsters, colorful locals, seemingly straitlaced professors, and fast-and-loose police officers, Brown's spellbinding and often hilarious story is about the botched choices and missed chances that separate people -- and the tenuous threads of love and coincidence that connect them. With all the subtlety and surprise of life itself, the story turns on a dime from comical to violent to moving. Masterful, profound, and full of spirit, "The Rabbit Factory" is literary entertainment of the highest order.
