Haiku

Product : Haiku
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the author of the acclaimed Burke series: a searing new novel that follows a band of homeless outcasts on a journey to recover what each has lost. Ho was a revered sensei, but when his dismissive arrogance causes the death of a beloved student, he renounced not only his possessions but also his role as a master, and now roams the streets in search of a way to atone. Drawn by his presence, a group forms around him: Michael, an addicted gambler who has lost everything, including himself; Ranger, a Vietnam veteran with a tenuous grip on reality; Lamont, a once-fearless street-gang warlord turned hopeless alcoholic; Target, a relentless "clanger" who speaks only by echoing the sounds of others; and Brewster, an obsessive collector of hardboiled paperbacks he stashes in an abandoned building even vermin avoid. Late one night, Michael spots a woman in a white Rolls-Royce throwing something into the river. Convinced that the woman is a perfect blackmail target, he attempts to recruit the others to search for her. But news that Brewster's library is slated for demolition turns this halfhearted effort into a serious mission to find the ultimate problem-solver: money, and with it a new home for Brewster's precious collection. Each frantic knock opens another barred door as the building's destruction draws nearer. And the answers to each man's questions trigger shocking explosions that hit you with all the visceral power we have come to expect from this fierce and dynamic writer.

Free not to feel guilty about your limitations? Free to ask for help, free to be real, free to grow? Freedom is in store for you--freedom to be the best mom you can be. This book will show you the way.

Preemption: A Knife That Cuts Both Ways

Product : Preemption: A Knife That Cuts Both Ways
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An incisive, prophetic look at our increasing reliance on preemptive action--from profiling to preventive war. Every so often, a startling book emerges that gives voice to a new or previously unexamined trend that is transforming society. Alan M. Dershowitz's provocative new work, "Preemption," is just such a book, chronicling a paradigm shift in our approach to controlling destructive conduct. As he reveals, we are moving--whether in society's manner of fighting crime or in our response to terrorism--toward more preventive and proactive approaches and away from primary reliance on deterrent and reactive responses. Although the events of 9/11 have accelerated this revolutionary shift, Dershowitz compellingly documents that the seeds were planted much earlier. In this thought-provoking account, Dershowitz explores the historical origins of the change as well as its troubling implication for civil liberties, human rights, criminal justice, national security, and foreign policy. About the series: Issues of Our Time: "Aware of the competition for the attention of readers, W. W. Norton & Company and I have created the "Issues of Our Time" as a lucid series of highly readable books through which some of today's most thoughtful intellectuals seek to challenge the general reader to reexamine received truths and grapple with powerful trends that are shaping the world in which we live. The series launches with Anthony Appiah, Alan Dershowitz, and Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen as the first of an illustrious group who will tackle some of the most plangent and central issues defining our society today through books that deal with such issues as sexual and racial identities, the economics of thedeveloping world, and the concept of citizenship in a truly globalized twenty-first-century world culture. Above all else, these books are designed to be read and enjoyed."--Henry Louis Gates Jr., W. E. B. DuBois Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University

Norma Vally's Kitchen Fix-Ups: More Than 30 Projects for Every Skill Level [With DVD]

Product : Norma Vally's Kitchen Fix-Ups: More Than 30 Projects for Every Skill Level [With DVD]
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The DIY trend for women involves more than knitting and sewing: today more women are tending to their homes, and they're not just sewing curtains and arranging flowers. They're installing new toilets, laying ceramic floors in the kitchen, and drywalling the den. With 23 percent of all power tool purchases in 2004 made by women, and the number of unmarried females owning homes climbing by nearly 4 million owners from 1994 to 2002, when it comes to home repair, maintenance, and improvement, these sisters are doing it for themselves. At the same time, a survey by Home Depot found that 73 percent of women would like to learn more about tackling home improvements. But who has the brains, brawn, and beauty to really understand a woman's perspective and give her the confidence to conquer what had traditionally been men's territory? Norma Vally. Norma Vally is a rare combination: construction worker, former model, television and radio host. As the host of Discovery Home's Toolbelt Diva, Norma showed women how to throw out the Honey Do lists and "Honey, do it yourself." She's beautiful, sassy, confident, and competent, and with a radio show, a line of tools, a website, and her top-rated TV show she is a franchise dedicated to educating women on home repair, maintenance, and improvement. The Norma Vally book series is as sassy as Norma, packed with real-world tips showing women how to take charge of their homes. This four-color, fully illustrated series provides a basic overview of big-picture renovation. In Norma Vally's Kitchen Fix-Ups, Norma guides the reader through determining not only how to do the work, but how to determine what is right for her: How does she use her kitchen? What features are truly important? Is it the domain of one person or the family hangout? Are there storage considerations? Is plumbing position and function optimal? Then she provides an overview of the jobs best left to professionals and those the reader can master with Norma's guidance: fixing a leaky faucet, installing a backsplash, building in recessed lighting, resurfacing countertops. Tasks are broken down into three levels of difficulty and cover sinks, countertops, appliances, cabinets, walls, and floors. The book is written in Norma's trademark can-do, sassy voice and provides confidence to the most nervous renovator, showing readers that Honey-Do lists can truly become a thing of the past. The book is packaged with a $9.99 value-add DVD of Norma walking the user through three key tasks, one at each level of difficulty: cleaning out a faucet aerator, repairing a leaky faucet, and installing a new faucet. None of the competition contains this multimedia element. Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.

Description : This popular Build-It-Yourself (BIY) PC book covers everything you want to know about building your own system: Planning and picking out the right components, step-by-step instructions for assembling your perfect PC, and an insightful discussion of why you'd want to do it in the first place. Most big brand computers from HP, Dell and others use lower-quality components so they can meet their aggressive pricing targets. But component manufacturers also make high-quality parts that you can either purchase directly, or obtain through distributors and resellers. Consumers and corporations alike are opting to build rather than buy PCs to ensure high quality and compatibility. The new edition of Building the Perfect PC shows you how to construct a variety of top-flight systems with the latest technology, including AMD Socket AM-2 and Intel Core 2 processors, that are Vista- and Linux-ready. The book includes several new options, including: A Budget PC you can build for approximately $350 that offers performance and reliability similar to that of mainstream systems A full-blown media-center system that runs Linux and MythTV or Windows MCE with multiple tuners and HDTV support A fire-breathing high-performance gaming system A fast, low-power, low-heat, low-noise, Small Form Factor system (the size of a shoe box) A low-cost SOHO (small office, home office) server system with a 2 terabyte (2,000 GB) disk subsystem that's suitable for a residential environment rather than a server closet Regardless of your technical experience, Building the Perfect PC will guide you through the entire process of building or upgrading your own computer. You'll use the latest top-quality components, includingIntel's Core 2 Duo and AMD's Athlon X2 CPUs. And you'll know exactly what's under the hood and how to fix or upgrade your PC, should that become necessary. Not only is the process fun, but the result is often less expensive and always better quality and far more satisfying than anything you could buy off the shelf.

To Be the Poet

Product : To Be the Poet
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "I have almost finished my longbook," Maxine Hong Kingston declares. "Let my life as Poet begin...I won't be a workhorse anymore; I'll be a skylark." "To Be the Poet" is Kingston's manifesto, the avowal and declaration of a writer who has devoted a good part of her sixty years to writing prose, and who, over the course of this spirited and inspiring book, works out what the rest of her life will be, in poetry. Taking readers along with her, this celebrated writer gathers advice from her gifted contemporaries and from sages, critics, and writers whom she takes as ancestors. She consults her past, her conscience, her time--and puts together a volume at once irreverent and deeply serious, playful and practical, partaking of poetry throughout as it pursues the meaning, the possibility, and the power of the life of the poet. A manual on inviting poetry, on conjuring the elusive muse, "To Be the Poet" is also a harvest of poems, from charms recollected out of childhood to bursts of eloquence, wonder, and waggish wit along the way to discovering what it is to be a poet.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : April Liesgang and Caleb Shannon have known each other for just three short months, so their Valentine's Day wedding at a chapel near the shores of Lake Michigan has both families in an uproar. Meanwhile, at the nearby Hideaway Lodge, a domestic quarrel ends in tragedy. As April and Caleb's life together begins, death parts another man and woman in angry violence -- and as the two stories gradually intersect, their juxtaposition explores the tangled roots of vulnerability and desire. From the novel's opening epigraph from Chekhov -- "If you feel loneliness, then marriage is not for you" -- to its final moments in the honeymoon suite, A. Manette Ansay weaves tenderness and fury, passion and wonder into a startling tapestry of love in all its paradox and power.

    Southern Ladies, New Women: Race, Region, and Clubwomen in South Carolina, 1890-1930

    Product : Southern Ladies, New Women: Race, Region, and Clubwomen in South Carolina, 1890-1930
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Joan Marie Johnson investigates how the desire to create a distinctive southern identity influenced black and white clubwomen at the turn of the 20th century and motivated their participation in efforts at social reform. Often doing similar work for different reasons, both groups emphasized history, memory, and education. Focusing particularly on South Carolina clubs, "Southern Ladies, New Women" shows that white women promoted a culture of segregation in which southern equaled white and black equaled inferior. Like the United Daughters of the Confederacy, they celebrated the Lost Cause and its racial ideology. African-American clubwomen fought for the needs of their communities, struggled against Jim Crow, and demanded recognition of their citizenship. For both groups, control over historical memory thus became a powerful tool, one with the potential to oppress African-Americans as well as to help free them. This ambitious book illuminates the essence of what South Carolina's clubwomen of both races were thinking, feeling, and attempting to accomplish. It considers the entwined strands of race and gender that hampered their attempts to bridge their differences and that brought tension to their relations with northern clubwomen. It also addresses the seeming paradox of the white clubwomen who belonged simultaneously to tradition-minded organizations, such as the Daughters of the American Revolution or the Colonial Dames, and to a variety of forward-looking associations that engaged in impressive social reform. Although Johnson looks most closely at the Progressive Era in South Carolina, her comparative study of race, gender, reform, and southern identity reveals that women's clubs, both white and black, contributed to the creation of the new cultural climate and social order that emerged throughout the post-Civil-War South. This book will be important for all who are interested in a better understanding of race relations in contemporary America.

    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : In this first anthology in the annual Best Catholic Writing series, today's most powerful, provocative voices on Catholic matters are brought together in a celebration of Catholic writing and the Catholic literary heritage. Exploring the question What is Catholic writing? editor Brian Doyle proposes that it is not only writing by Catholics, for Catholics, or on Catholic matters, but is also catholic, universal, in nature. The works collected in The Best Catholic Writing 2004 are wide-ranging, eloquent, and riveting. With essays on Catholic art, conjugal sex, and Harry Potter; a remembrance of Dorothy Day; an elegy for Fred Rogers; examinations of the current dark chapter in the history of the Catholic Church; and poetic reflections on faith and the Catholic life, this anthology serves as "a form of prayer, a communal story swap, a jolt of hope." Featuring such writers as Alice McDermott, Andrew Greeley, Paul Elie, and Kathleen Norris, this first-ever collection of best Catholic writing reveals that "everything, seen with a clear enough eye, is meant for the Catholic mind."

    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Dan Caro has been proving the world wrong since he was in diapers. When he was two years old, he was engulfed in a fireball during a gasoline explosion in the family garage and was left with third-degree burns over most of his body--so severe that doctors held out little hope he'd survive more than a few days. Dan was in such excruciating pain that his devastated parents silently prayed for God to end their son's suffering and welcome him into heaven. And it seemed as if God was willing to oblige--Dan technically died on the operating table several times in the hours following the accident. But even though his heart stopped, Dan's spirit wasn't ready to give up . . . somehow he knew he had work to do. Despite the odds, Dan survived, but life would not be easy. The fire left him badly maimed and disfigured. His hands were burned away, as was most of his skin and nearly all of his face. He would endure years of painful surgeries and endless months of lonely isolation in burn units, only to suffer the agony of social rejection, shunned and called "monster" by both children and adults in his Louisiana hometown.With the support of his loving parents and siblings, Dan did not despair. He kept his heart open to the world and focused on the positive energy around him. Before his sixth birthday, he vowed that his life would not be defined by the way others saw him or the restrictions of his so-called physical handicaps. Dan set himself a series of life goals, starting with the art of tying his shoelaces without fingers. Once he had achieved that milestone, he decided he could do anything . . . so why not learn to play the drums? When Dan was told he'd never be able to do so, he promised himself that one day he'd become one of the most accomplished drummers in the city that gave jazz its name--New Orleans Since that day, Dan's music has inspired thousands, and many more have also been inspired by his personal philosophy of focusing on the positive, refusing to accept limits, and living life with an open heart. Today, the young man who was once shunned and called "monster" by his neighbors is very much in demand as a public speaker and travels the country encouraging others to not just overcome life's hardships, but to view adversity as a gift that can drive us toward reaching our full potential.This is Dan's first book.

Resenting his new living arrangements and his unorthodox home life, Josh finds himself drawn to the idea of a "regular" family and, on a whim, sneaks into a neighbor's house to see how others live. When another opportunity arises to be a fly on the wall, Josh takes it and finds himself becoming bolder. Considering it a harmless pastime, Josh continues entering people's houses, until he is witness to a violent home invasion. Josh must use all his courage to save himself and bring the home invader to justice. Monique Polak is the author of No More Pranks, an Orca Soundings novel. Monique lives in Montreal.

    Submarine Outlaw

    Product : Submarine Outlaw
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : "Submarine Outlaw" takes YA readers on a unique journey when Alfred, a young boy who wants to be an explorer -- "not" a fisherman -- teams up with a junkyard genius to build a submarine that he sails around the Maritimes. The book takes the reader through the detailed hands-on process of submarine construction into the world of real ocean navigation, replete with a high-seas chase, daring rescue, and treasure hunting. Children will identify with Alfreds desire for an adventurous life and the sense of empowerment that comes with building his own submarine and operating it independently. They will also love the unusual crew -- a rescued dog and a quirky seagull. The First Prize Winner of the Atlantic Writers Competition, "Submarine Outlaw" shows how any great goal in life takes a good deal of patience, determination and hard work. But hard work on one's dream becomes an act of joy. Another important theme developed is the importance of good judgment. The main character learns first hand that he is equally able to make good and bad choices, and must quickly identify the difference. The theme of choosing a career of ones own in the face of familial or societal opposition is also well developed. There is an element of mystery and intrigue intrinsic to submarines that makes for compelling reading. When the main character is mistaken for a Russian spy sub and chased by the Canadian coastguard, the plot takes many exciting twists, making the book difficult to put down. Children will identify with the main character because he is an average young teen filled with desire and enthusiasm, and driven to follow his dreams. Step by step they will see how a typical, average young teen comes to livea very extraordinary experience.

    Do You Love Me?: Jesus Questions the Church

    Product : Do You Love Me?: Jesus Questions the Church
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Throughout the Gospel of John Jesus poses a series of questions: "What are you looking for?" "Do you want to be healed?" "Why do I speak to you at all?" as well as the most poignant, addressed to Peter, "Do you love me?" Michael Crosby's reflections on these questions take us into the heart of John's gospel. He highlights an important theme: the tension between a model of the church that gives emphasis to the Petrine principle of apostolic authority and a model of the church -- characterized by the Beloved Disciple -- that gives greater emphasis to loving service and discipleship. As Crosby shows, it is in balancing the roles of both Peter and the Beloved Disciple that the church best reflects the spirit of Christ.

    Product : Pouring Six Beers at a Time: And Other Stories from a Lifetime in Baseball
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Once dubbed the P.T. Barnum of Major League Baseball, Bill Giles has brought more joy and laughter to more people than any other man in the history of the game. The treasure trove of stories in Pouring Six Beers at a Time offers a hilarious, fascinating, and revealing view of the national pastime from the 1930s to the present. Born into a baseball family (his father was president of the Cincinnati Reds and later of the National League, and his godfather was Branch Rickey), Bill was literally raised in Crosley Field in Cincinnati. Ballparks were his home as a child, and he has never left. Having served in nearly every front office position you can name, from the depths of the minor leagues to Houston during the first days of the Astrodome, and on to the Philadelphia Phillies--a team he eventually "bought for $50,000"--there is no better tour guide to baseball's backstage than Bill Giles. You'll laugh out loud at the behind-the-scenes stories of pregame promotional efforts--some that worked and a few that went very much awry. You'll be fascinated by a unique perspective on players, owners, and commissioners. And you'll learn more about the business of baseball than you ever thought a fan could know. Through it all, you'll grow to appreciate this man's deep love and respect for the game that has been the Giles "family business" for nearly a century.

    Description : A remarkable novel of startling psychological power, "The Reconstructionist," Josephine Hart's fifth novel, explores the reckless quality of exclusive love, the damage done in families, and the way we build our lives from the fragments of memory, half-truths, compromise, and desire. A brilliant and incisive fiction, this is Josephine Hart at the top of her form. Jack Harrington is a psychiatrist, dedicated to others, to the examination of their pasts and the reconstruction of their lives. But he has so absorbed himself in the problems of others that he has not quite come to grips with his own-to the detriment of his marriage and his own unexamined past. When Jack is summoned to Ireland for the sale of his family home, however, the burdens of his family's heritage return in full force. Though he has successfully suppressed the anguish of his past, the present threatens to unravel around him. In the house in Ireland terrible truths emerge about what happened years ago in a family tragedy that left indelible marks on those who survived it. The past may have been reconstructed many times, but the appalling truth has not.

    Product : Stories of God: A New Translation
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Composed in 1899 when Rilke was only twenty-three, the interconnected tales of "Stories of God " were inspired by a trip to Russia the young poet had made the year previously. It is said that the vastness of the Russian landscape and the profound spirituality he perceived in the simple people he met led him to an experience of finding God in all things, and to the conviction that God seeks to be known by us as passionately as we might seek to know God. All the great themes of Rilke's later powerful and complex poetry can be found in the "Stories of God ," yet their charming, folktale-like quality has made them among the most accessible of Rilke's works, beloved by all ages.

    God's Defenders: What They Believe and Why They Are Wrong

    Product : God's Defenders: What They Believe and Why They Are Wrong
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : Committed atheist S. T. Joshi takes up this long-dormant "call to arms" in this highly acerbic critique of the religious point of view. With the aim of "combating religious mummery and obscurantism" he dissects the arguments offered by well-known apologists for various tenets of belief. Taking on both the famous intellectuals of the recent past as well as leading defenders of the supernatural today, he rigorously examines their claims and in every case finds them deficient in logic, evidence, or both. Nonetheless, he points out that despite the rather obvious fallacies of religious apologies, people continue to believe, whether from ignorance or psychological need. Accusing his fellow nonbelievers of complicity through their silence in perpetuating religious nonsense, he argues that a more vocal and vigorously asserted atheism is needed today. In ten chapters he considers and rebuts the defenses of William James, G. K. Chesterton, T. S. Eliot, C. S. Lewis, William F. Buckley, Stephen L. Carter, Jerry Falwell, Reynolds Price, Annie Dillard, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Neale Donald Walsch, and Guenter Lewy. Though all of these very different people--poets, preachers, psychologists, visionaries, and writers--explain religion from utterly different perspectives, Joshi notes that they all share an underlying unwillingness or inability to answer the crucial question: Is religion true? Religion, if it is to survive, insists Joshi, must like science show that its claims are true. For over two hundred years science has been clearly demonstrating the truth of its propositions about reality, while religion has at the same time been consistently failing this test. As long as influential people continueto defend religion, it is time, says Joshi, for nonbelievers to point out--loudly and clearly--that the emperor has no clothes.

Pigeat juxtaposes traditional and contemporary garden designs, exploring their themes as expressions of a culture's artistic creativity and social structure. Pigeat retraces his steps through famous and lesser-known gardens around the world-from Roman emperor Hadrian's universalist Tivoli park to Middle Eastern water gardens, and from eighteenth-century British garden design to a modern-day lightning field. Each garden has something to teach about the history of garden design, from the ostentatious design of Versailles, where the sumptuous layout reflects the monarch's power, to the inspired innovation of the Eden Project in England, which aims to teach visitors about the environment, our most precious resource; to the cutting-edge design of the Gas Works Park in Seattle, Washington, which reclaimed a former industrial site for the people of the city to enjoy. Lavishly illustrated, with a lush format and informative text this truly magnificent panorama of garden design will meet the expectations of professional, designers, and garden travelers alike.

Jim wakes one night to find two men trying to steal his car, and against the petitions of his wife he goes outside to get the plate number of the car thieves' truck. Instead he drives away in the truck, and soon finds himself over his head in a mire of sinister events. Jim learns from Police Sergeant Rainey that the two thieves are brothers with a history of violence, and they may hold him responsible for the loss of their truck, though he denies having taken it. Taking the police sergeant's advice, Jim drops the attempted theft charges, but one of the thieves begins stalking him, and during a desperate chase on the freeway Jim causes a wreck that kills the man. While Jim can't tell his wife what has happened, the sound of the impact keeps him up at night.

When Marla realizes Jim is leaving the house at night, she moves in with her brother across town until Jim can sort out whatever is causing him to behave in this inexplicable way. Then Jim realizes that the other car thief, the brother, is staking out the house. He overhears the man make threatening remarks about Marla, and he also learns that the man has a pistol. Jim acquires his own pistol. In a remote spot, taking care to cover his tracks, he ambushes the man, fatally shooting him. The next day Sergeant Rainey visits Jim at work to say that the second car thief had been found shot to death, and let Jim know he won't be on their list of suspects if he keeps quiet. Now Jim has to reconcile with Marla by telling her the whole truth about everything in order to can truly win her back.

Once beyond the obligatory low-budget debut EP, they fused their complex instrumentation - piano, viola, French horn, accordian, harp, hurdy gurdy, etc. - to produce Funeral, one of the greatest debut albums in decades. This 1994 release, bolstered by hearty support from the likes of David Bowie, David Byrne and U2, catapulted Arcade Fire to worldwide success. Triumphant sets at the Coachella, Reading and Latitude festivals only served to continue the momentum. This book looks beyond the triumphs that gather in their story, to discover a band who are determined to retain the pure yet complex personal dynamic that always set them apart.

    Description : This debut novel offers a no-holds-barred account of two young lovers fighting their pasts for the chance of love and family. Love is the one thing missing from Fatima's life, beginning when her parents left her at the age of four. Usually she enjoys calling the shots in her love life, but when she runs into a mysterious man on a night out, everything changes. Cory Hines would give anything to undo his childhood. Growing up with an abusive father and distant mother left him wary of family and relationships. And as he tries to straighten out his life, the nightmares return and send him down a drunken spiral. His siblings force him into therapy, but it's not until he meets Fatima that he begins to learn what commitment is all about. Though their pasts continue to haunt their relationships, it is their common problems that draw Cory and Fatima closer. In the process of getting their lives on track, they find out more about themselves and their pasts than they bargained for and realize they must rid their demons for good in order to survive. But just when Cory and Fatima get comfortable with each other and the idea of a relationship, news of an unexpected pregnancy sends them both running back to the familiar. Full of raw emotion and a vulnerability that pulls you in, "Parallel Pasts" offers an inside look at what it takes to escape a history of domestic abuse, as Cory must suppress the urge to fight anything that gets in his way, and the women who love him through the process.

    Husband and Wife

    Product : Husband and Wife
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : In this new novel by the celebrated author of "The Myth of You and Me," a young mother discovers that her husband's novel about infidelity might be drawn from real life. Sarah Price is thirty-five years old. She doesn't feel as though she's getting older, but there are some noticeable changes: a hangover after two beers, the stray gray hair, and, most of all, she's called "Mom" by two small children. Always responsible, Sarah traded her MFA for a steady job, which allows her husband, Nathan, to write fiction. But Sarah is happy and she believes Nathan is too, until a truth is revealed: Nathan's upcoming novel, "Infidelity," is based in fact. Suddenly Sarah's world is turned upside down. Adding to her confusion, Nathan abdicates responsibility for the fate of their relationship and of his novel's publication--a financial lifesaver they have been depending upon--leaving both in Sarah's hands. Reeling from his betrayal, she is plagued by dark questions. How well does she really know Nathan? And, more important, how well does she know herself? For answers, Sarah looks back to her artistic twenty-something self to try to understand what happened to her dreams. When did it all seem to change? Pushed from her complacent plateau, Sarah begins to act--for the first time not so responsibly--on all the things she has let go of for so long: her blank computer screen; her best friend, Helen; the volumes of Proust on her bookshelf. And then there is that e-mail in her inbox: a note from Rajiv, a beautiful man from her past who once tempted her to stray. The struggle to find which version of herself is the essential one--artist, wife, or mother--takes Sarah hundreds of miles away from her marriage on a surprising journey. Wise, funny, and sharply drawn, Leah Stewart's "Husband and Wife" probes our deepest relationships, the promises we make and break, and the consequences they hold for our lives, revealing that it's never too late to step back and start over.

    Product : When Flesh Becomes Word: An Anthology of Early Eighteenth-Century Libertine Literature
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : When Flesh Becomes Word collects nine different examples of British libertine literature that appeared before 1750. Three of these--The School of Venus (1680), Venus in the Cloister (1725), and A Dialogue Between a Married Lady and a Maid (1740)--are famous "whore dialogues," dramatic conversations between an older, experienced woman and a younger, inexperienced maid. Previously unavailable in an affordable edition, these dialogues combine sex education, medical folklore, and erotic literature in a decidedly proto-pornographic form. This edition presents other important examples of libertine literature, including bawdy poetry, a salacious medical treatise, an irreverent travelogue, and a criminal biography. The combination of both popular and influential texts presented in this edition provides an accessible introduction to the variety of material available to eighteenth-century readers before the publication of John Cleland's Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure in 1749.

    Heirs of the Fisherman: Behind the Scenes of Papal Death and Succession

    Product : Heirs of the Fisherman: Behind the Scenes of Papal Death and Succession
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : The election of a new pope always captures the world's attention, as all eyes turn to the chimney atop the Sistine Chapel, where the color of the smoke is our only clue to the secret deliberations inside. In this fascinating volume, former Vatican insider John-Peter Pham takes us where outsiders have never gone before, providing vital background to the selection of the heir of the fisherman. Here is a highly accurate portrait of the modern Vatican--indeed, the only account to reveal the striking changes to papal succession procedures made by Pope John Paul II. Blending political and ecclesiastical history, Pham goes beyond a mere description of the complex rituals--including a rare insight into the dramatic shifts inside the College of Cardinals, whose 130 members now hail from 57 nations around the globe. Pham takes us into the secret conclave (from the Latin cum clave, "with key"), where the electors are kept under lock and key, incommunicado, until they have selected a new pope. Here we find a fascinating chronicle of political intrigue set in the context of ritual--including a chapter devoted to the intrigues of the 20th century where the first conclave had an emperor's veto and the last was won by the first non-Italian in four centuries because the Italians were bitterly divided. In a most timely analysis, Pham also provides a valuable one-by-one assessment of the present-day cardinals and possible candidates (papabili, or pope-ables) to succeed John Paul II. He explores the legacy of this highly influential pope--looking beyond his papacy to discuss the highly-charged issues that his successor will have to confront, including financial and sexual scandals, the roles ofpriests and women, and the very future of the church itself. And throughout the book, he provides a gold mine of information that make this book an indispensable reference, including appendices that contain biographical notes on many of the key personalities of Catholicism past and present as well as a useful glossary of Catholic history and theology. Here then is an illuminating history and must-have guide to a vitally important world event, one that is moving ever closer and will be watched with intense interest by more than a billion people around the globe.

    Beyond Ego Psychology

    Product : Beyond Ego Psychology
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : In this, the third volume in the acclaimed series on ego psychology, Rubin and Gertrude Blanck advance ego psychology beyond its position as a psychoanalytic developmental psychology, and present a developmental object relations theory. In "Beyond Ego Psychololgy: Developmental Object Relations Theory" the authors remain, as always, firmly rooted in psychoanalytic theory while elaborating upon it. While their earlier work integrated the structural theory with the ego psychology that flowed from it, here they have extended Freud's concept of the "Gesamt Ich," the ego as a whole, which they describe as superordinate to the ego of structure. Their work is distinctive because they add new dimensions to theory construction without discarding such basics as drive theory and conflict theory. This new volume revives Freud's thoughts about object realations, and adds developmental theory to provide an integrated object relations theory. Object relations, the Blancks propose, arise out of the interaction between self and object representations and can be defined as the resultants of that interaction. Extended also are the concept of transference, the manner in which the Oedipus Complex is resolved, and the technique of the termination process. "Beyond Ego Psychology" will be welcomed by readers of the first two books in this series, by psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, and by a broad readership of professors and students in psychology, social work, and medicine.

    Product : New Glass Architecture
    Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
    Description : For centuries, glass has provoked fascination with its properties as a versatile material that permits light to enter buildings in spectacular ways. Much of modern architecture has been conceived by using glass to create increasingly minimal structures, to promote the notion of lightweight construction solutions, and to allow maximum daylight into buildings. "New Glass Architecture" showcases the changing ways that aesthetics and methods for using glass have been developing since the 1990s. The book begins with an introduction that traces the history of key moments in glass architecture--from the stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral to the Crystal Palace of 1851, and early constructions by John Soane, Bruno Taut, Le Corbusier, and Mies van der Rohe. Author Brent Richards explains the importance of glass artists in the second half of the 20th century and describes developments in glass technology over the last twenty years. Beautifully illustrated with newly commissioned photographs by Dennis Gilbert, the book features twenty-five case studies of recent glass constructions from around the world by such leading architects as Foster and Partners, Frank Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl, Toyo Ito & Associates, Jean Nouvel, Raphael Vinoly, and Peter Zumthor. Each building is illustrated in full color and accompanied by detailed drawings. "New Glass Architecture" features these buildings and more: - Chapel of Ignatius, Seattle - Conde Nast Cafe, New York - DZ Bank, Berlin - Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia - Kunsthaus, Graz, Austria - Laban Dance Centre, London - Torre Agbar, Barcelona

Beth invites Marcus, the son of Arch's final and most challenging client, to spend the summer with her and her teenage twins, Winnie and Garrett, who have mixed reactions to sharing their special summer place with this stranger. Always a place of peace before, Nantucket becomes the scene of roiling emotions and turbulent passions as Marcus, Winnie, and Garrett learn about loss, first love, and betrayal.
