Pilgrim's Progress Today: Christian's Quest Through the Modern World

Product : Pilgrim's Progress Today: Christian's Quest Through the Modern World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An odyssey of faith for the modern world. Journey with Christian through the perils of the modern world in this extraordinary re-creation of John Bunyan's 17th century classic. Set against the landscape of the new millennium, the Dump of Despond now brims with the toxic waste of tabloids and broken relationships. Worldy Wiseman tells us all roads lead to the light, and the Prince of Power snares his victims with tantalizing media images Pilgrim's Progress Today is a book for our times. It confronts head-on the messages peddled by our culture and exposes what is deceptive in terms everyone can understand. Like Christian, we see things as they really are--the virtual reality of our new millennium is an unsatisfying substitute for the epic adventure of real life, which is still only found on the journey from the foot of the cross to the gate of Celestial City.

Outgunned!: True Stories of Citizens Who Stood Up to Outlaws-And Won

Product : Outgunned!: True Stories of Citizens Who Stood Up to Outlaws-And Won
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : It's a classic story from hundreds of western shoot-'em-ups: a gang of outlaws rides into town, terrorizes local citizens, and finally meets their match when the heroic sheriff appears. In real life, it was different. Some of the most notorious western outlaws were killed or captured by townspeople. And the trend continued throughout the Prohibition era. OUTGUNNED TRUE STORIES OF CITIZENS WHO STOOD UP TO OUTLAWS -- AND WON describes a dozen such cases. There's Jesse James, whose gang was decimated by armed citizens while the James-Younger Gang was attempting to rob a bank in Northfield, Minnesota. There's Tom Horn, assassin for the Wyoming cattle barons, who was shot by citizens during an ill-fated jailbreak. And there's George Birdwell, "Pretty Boy" Floyd's chief lieutenant; he and his partners were gunned down by outraged townspeople as they attempted to hold up a bank in the all-black town of Boley, Oklahoma. There's the notorious Dalton gang that entered Coffeyville, Kansas, one cold fall morning in 1892 and attempted to rob two banks at the same time; four of the outlaws were killed by armed citizens. Then there's Anthony Chebatoris, a Prohibition-era socialist who, after murdering an innocent bystander during an attempted bank robbery in Midland, Michigan, was shot by a dentist who kept a hunting rifle in his office.

But what technologies are right for our church, and how do we use them? Wired for Ministry offers practical strategies for integrating technology and ministry while keeping a watchful eye on potential technological pitfalls. Remembering that technology is the medium and not the message, Jewell discusses specific ways that tools such as the Internet, digital video, and music can enhance youth groups, worship services, educational ministries, and evangelism. Pastors, Christian educators, youth leaders, and Sunday school teachers will rely on this useful guide. Jewell's wise introduction to the process of bringing technology into ministry will be indispensable for Christian leaders and "lay-techies" everywhere.

2012: Science or Superstition

Product : 2012: Science or Superstition
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : December 21, 2012: the end date of the sophisticated Long Count Calendar created by the ancient Maya in Central America. Countless websites, magazine articles, and newspaper headlines debate its meaning, with enthusiasts in two camps: those forecasting apocalypse--the end of time--and those who see a coming renewal--a rebirth of consciousness. Adding fuel to the debate, some scientists see the increasing number of natural disasters in recent years as evidence of a catastrophic climax of events in 2012. How much of what we're hearing is science and how much is superstition? Once past the gatekeepers, the carnival barkers, and the marketing hype, one finds that the fundamental concepts revolving around 2012 are among the most vital in existence. The 2012 meme boils down to the mysterious past, present, and future of the Earth and of every being upon it. It offers perspectives on how humanity chooses to relate to itself, to the Earth, and to the cosmos. How do we measure time, and how do human beings conceive of history and of personal identity? What are our values, our ideals, and our faiths? Unique among a vast array of 2012-related literature, Alexandra Bruce sorts through the many and varied theories about what the mythic date will bring, allowing the reader to distinguish what is vital from what she terms "mythomania" in a bewildering world of 2012 products. Bruce surveys the leading researchers, writers, and scientists in the field, who tell us exactly what this date means to them, why it's important, and what we should expect.

These are the scenarios of "Counterspace," a frighteningly plausible look at threats to the United States and the world. Scott, Coumatos, and Birnes use war gaming scenarios to show how the US Strategic Command might use current and near-future technology to prevent global disaster.

Deer: The Animal Answer Guide

Product : Deer: The Animal Answer Guide
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Think of deer and the image that pops into most American's minds is that of a white-tailed deer, the most common large mammal in North America. Most Europeans are more familiar with red deer. It may surprise many people to know that there are actually about 50 species of deer found throughout the world. Here, readers will find nontechnical, expert information about the wide range of diverse deer species. Did you know that elk and caribou are deer? Or that the earliest fossils of deer are 15 to 20 million years old? Have you ever wondered whether deer swim, play, or see color? How do deer avoid predators and survive the winter? Do deer make good pets or carry contagious diseases? George A. Feldhamer and William J. McShea answer these and other intriguing questions about members of the deer family Cervidae. From the diminutive pudu of South America that weighs 17 pounds to male moose that weigh close to 2,000 pounds, Feldhamer and McShea explore the biology, evolution, ecology, feeding habits, reproduction, and behavior of deer. They chronicle the relationships between humans and deer--both positive and negative--and discuss the challenges of deer conservation and management. With vivid color photographs and an accessible and engaging question-and-answer format, this easy-to-read book is the go-to resource on deer. Nature lovers, hunters, and anyone curious about deer will find this fact-filled book both fascinating and full of surprises.

Description : "Old MacDonald had a farm like you've never seen before " With a nod to the familiar refrain E-I-E-I-O, a day on this farm is framed by the vowels A-E-I-O-U--and sometimes Y. Old MacDonald appears in an explosion of color and, starting with the letter A, proceeds to "saw barn planks, stack sacks, crank cranks, and whack gnats." The day progresses as every vowel is featured in action-packed bursts of lively text. Old MacDonald has devised a myriad of tools to make her job if not easier, then a lot more fun. In chaotic scenes filled with pulleys, catapults, and flying machines, the farm becomes the background for a circus-like riot of fantastic contraptions.

Modern Theories of Art, 1: From Winckelmann to Baudelaire

Product : Modern Theories of Art, 1: From Winckelmann to Baudelaire
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Women were at the forefront of the civil rights struggle, but their indvidiual stories were rarely heard. Only recently have historians begun to recognize the central role women played in the battle for racial equality. In Sisters in the Struggle, we hear about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movements such as Ella Baker, who helped found the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, Fannie Lou Hamer, a sharecropper who took on segregation in the Democratic party (and won), and Septima Clark, who created a network of "Citizenship Schools" to teach poor Black men and women to read and write and help them to register to vote. We learn of Black women's activism in the Black Panther Party where they fought the police, as well as the entrenched male leadership, and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, where the behind-the-scenes work of women kept the organization afloat when it was under siege. It also includes first-person testimonials from the women who made headlines with their courageous resistance to segregation--Rosa Parks, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, and Dorothy Height. This collection represents the coming of age of African-American women's history and presents new stories that point the way to future study. Contributors: Bettye Collier-Thomas, Vicki Crawford, Cynthia Griggs Fleming, V. P. Franklin, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Farah Jasmine Griffin, Duchess Harris, Sharon Harley, Dorothy I.

The Temple of Jerusalem: Past, Present, and Future

Product : The Temple of Jerusalem: Past, Present, and Future
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As war and terrorism continue to rage over the Holy Land, the Temple of Jerusalem, arguably the most famous sacred structure in world history, looms in the background as a symbol of past glory, a place of religious worship, and a site to be contended over and coveted. This book offers a general history of the meaning, importance, and significance of the Temple of Jerusalem, in both the religious and the political arena. It begins with the construction of the Temple, its destruction in 587 B.C.E., its reconstruction in 516 B.C.E., the vast enlargement during the time of the Idumean King Herod, around 20 B.C.E., its final destruction in 70 C.E., and its dynamic and abundant afterlife as the leading influence in the construction of Jewish synagogues, Christian cathedrals, and Islamic mosques. But the Temple has also been at the center of much political and religious controversy, and Lundquist explores the issues and conflicts that have erupted over this sacred place, considers the meaning and importance of the Temple to Christianity, Judaism and Islam, from ancient times to the present, and concludes with a careful consideration of the continuing religious and political tensions. On September 28, 2000, Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount (also called Al-Haram As-Sharif) in Jerusalem, igniting what has come to be known as the second intifada. But why would such a visit to a religious site set off such a string of violent responses that continue to this day? The answer lies in the history of the Temple of Jerusalem, which once, indeed twice, stood in the spot known today as the Temple Mount (to Jews) and the Dome of the Rock (to Muslims). A holy place to three of the world's main religions-Christianity, Judaism, and Islam-the Temple of Jerusalem is, arguably, the most famous sacred structure in world history and figures prominently in Apocalyptic writings. Yet, it is almost entirely absent, in all its phases, from the archaeological record, as the sacred nature of the site prohibits any excavation.

"The Making of London" analyses the body of exceptional work by writers who have unconditionally committed their writing to the many lives of a city undergoing complex transformations. The book traces a major shift in the representation of the capital city, from the postmodern obsession with textuality, the shoring up of London's myths against a declining social fabric, and an exuberant multicultural utopia, to an anxious post-9/11 metropolis that has fallen apart. Is London undone? Authors covered include Maureen Duffy, Michael Moorcock, J. G. Ballard, Angela Carter, Iain Sinclair, Peter Ackroyd, Salman Rushdie, Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Hanif Kureishi, Will Self, Zadie Smith and Monica Ali.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : By drawing on a very large number of German sources, many of them previously unpublished, Jack Sheldon throws new light on a familiar story. In an account filled with graphic descriptions of life and death in the trenches, the author demonstrates that the dreadful losses of 1st July were a direct consequence of meticulous German planning and preparation. Although the Battle of the Somme was frequently a close-run affair, poor Allied co-ordination and persistence in attacking weakly on narrow fronts played into the hands of the German commanders, who were able to rush forward reserves, maintain the overall integrity of their defenses and so continue a successful delaying battle until the onset of winter ultimately neutralized the considerable Allied superiority in men and material.

The Bestiary, or Procession of Orpheus

Product : The Bestiary, or Procession of Orpheus
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Guillaume Apollinaire's first book of poems has charmed readers with its brief celebrations of animals, birds, fish, insects, and the mythical poet Orpheus since it was first published in 1911. Though Apollinaire would go on to longer and more ambitious work, his Bestiary reveals key elements of his later poetry, among them surprising images, wit, formal mastery, and wry irony. X. J. Kennedy's fresh translation follows Apollinaire in casting the poems into rhymed stanzas, suggesting music and sudden closures while remaining faithful to their sense. Kennedy provides the English alongside the original French, inviting readers to compare the two and appreciate the fidelity of the former to the latter. He includes a critical and historical essay that relates the Bestiary to its sources in medieval "creature books," provides a brief biography and summation of the troubled circumstances surrounding the book's initial publication, and places the poems in the context of Apollinaire's work as a poet and as a champion of avant garde art. This short introduction to the work of an essentially modern writer includes four curious poems apparently suppressed from the first edition and reprints of the Raoul Dufy woodcuts published in the 1911 edition.

Sunstein, University of Chicago Law School "Akhil Amar is the most creative legal scholar of his generation. In this path-breaking book, he proposes to reconstruct the entire discipline of constitutional criminal procedure from the ground up.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Austin Powers mercilessly parodied the look, but the films' enormous success proved the enduring influence of mid-60s London fashion. In April 1966, "Time" famously touted London as the new world center of style. Forty years later, this book reconsiders the roles played by designers like Mary Quant, celebrities like Twiggy, boutiques like Biba, photographers like David Bailey, magazines, and filmmakers in promoting a new, more relaxed, more colorful way of dressing that reverberated around the world. Illustrated with key pieces from the V&A's fashion collection plus contemporary photos, posters, and ephemera, the book relates fashion to the rapidly changing social, economic, and aesthetic context of the times, arguing for the central role it played not just on Carnaby Street, but in 60's pop culture.

Left in the Dark: Portraits of San Francisco Movie Theatres

Product : Left in the Dark: Portraits of San Francisco Movie Theatres
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In our age of Netflix and streaming videos, movie attendance continues its long decline, and cinema-going is becoming ever less of the collective experience Walter Benjamin so memorably described. Throughout the city of San Francisco, however, many theaters built between 1910 and 1950 are still standing, and some even remain in operation, serving as poignant reminders of Hollywood's Golden Age and the social interactions that once came with movie-going. R.A. McBride's lush color photographs--made with film cameras, of course--showcase these temples to celluloid in all their threadbare grandeur. Photographed empty, the buildings' architectural qualities, from rotunda chandeliers and warmly glowing walls to drab lobbies and worn armrests, come to the fore. Essays by scholars and film exhibitors including Rebecca Solnit, Julie Lindow, Eddie Muller, Chi-Hui Yang and Gary Meyer cast light from personal and scholarly perspectives, examining the movie houses' roles as characters in the cultural drama of the city.

Alive and Fighting: Coping with a Brain Tumor and a Bone Marrow Transplant

Product : Alive and Fighting: Coping with a Brain Tumor and a Bone Marrow Transplant
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : I have now survived for three years with a brain tumor. It was not just any tumor; it was a glioblastoma multiforme. Glioblastoma multiforme is the most fatal and aggressive of all brain tumors. The average life expectancy with glioblastoma multiforme is approximately 54 to 65 weeks. That's just over one year It has been quite an ordeal since I first started speaking gibberish and had a grand mal seizure on June 3, 2002, the day my tumor was discovered. It's crazy to think what a difference a single day had on my life. This book discusses my second and third years, which also included a bone marrow transplant because the chemotherapy had destroyed my bone marrow. Now, three years later, I still have many things to deal with on a daily basis including graft-versus-host disease from the bone marrow transplant, and reading and memory problems because a large piece of my brain was removed during my brain surgery. Surviving the first year was one of the most difficult things I have ever faced, but the second and third years were even harder. I am not even close to winning my battle over cancer, but I continue to fight until the end. There were many times that I just wanted to give up, even if the result was death. It was becoming too hard to fight as I became increasingly sick with each treatment. However, I never gave up. I have family and friends that I am not ready to leave yet and things I still want to do, so I will continue to fight

The Magic Flute

Product : The Magic Flute
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Originally commissioned by the Viennese music-hall impresario Emanuel Schikaneder, The Magic Flute has triumphed over these humble beginnings to become the most widely performed and best-loved opera in the international repertory. Over the centuries, Mozart's inspired whimsy and symbolism have been interpreted by artists as varied as Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Marc Chagall, David Hockney, and now Davide Pizzigoni. With elegant verve, Pizzigoni translates Mozart's celebrated musical motifs into such visual motifs as quirky faces, extravagant shoes, and of course, musical instruments. The new translation of the Schikaneder/Mozart libretto by poet and librettist J.D. McClatchy takes an equally fresh and amusing approach.

The Pilgrims and Pocahontas: Rival Myths of American Origin

Product : The Pilgrims and Pocahontas: Rival Myths of American Origin
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Following the American Revolution, citizens of the United States began to write a history of their new nation starting with the first English settlements, Jamestown and Plymouth. Virginians embellished the saga of Jamestown and Pocahontas, the Indian woman who, by popular accounts, saved the colony. Similarly, New Englanders sanctified the Pilgrims and their mythical first step on Plymouth Rock.By comparing these two origin myths, investigating them in art, literature, and popular memory, Ann Uhry Abrams uncovers surprising similarities in traditions of remembrance as well as striking differences in the character of the myths and the messages they convey. During these heated debates of antebellum America, the escalating rivalry between North and South prompted an array of artists, authors, and politicians to refashion the legends to their needs, with Massachusetts turning the settlers of Plymouth into pious and industrious saints, Virginians portraying Pocahontas as the savior of English civilization in North America. As these images were codified, tales of Jamestown and Plymouth bolstered debates over immigration, women's rights, abolition, Indian removal, and a host of other issues of national import. And when sectional rifts exploded into the Civil War, the stories fueled the flames that pitted North against South.

Description : Originally published in German in 1936, The Natural Law is the first work to clarify the differences between traditional natural law as represented in the writings of Cicero, Aquinas, and Hooker and the revolutionary doctrines of natural rights espoused by Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau. Beginning with the legacies of Greek and Roman life and thought, Rommen traces the natural law tradition to its displacement by legal positivism and concludes with "the reappearance" of natural law thought in more recent times. In seven chapters each, Rommen explores "The History of the Idea of Natural Law" and "The Philosophy and Content of the Natural Law."

The Pain and the Itch

Product : The Pain and the Itch
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this brief but staggering two-act, playwright Norris demonstrates his skill at drawing out the dark truth that lurks beneath the surface of the "perfect" family. His crackling satire takes dead aim at the self-satisfied, left-leaning American upper-middle class and its many self-delusions. On a winter afternoon, Kelly and Clay--an attractive, prosperous, seemingly happy couple with a four-year-old daughter and a newborn baby--must explain to a visitor the events of the previous Thanksgiving, on which, so it seems, someone or "something" had been gnawing at the avocados on their kitchen table. In the course of this holiday gathering--attended by Clay's mother, a well-meaning but clueless first-grade teacher who spouts pointless liberal bromides; his brother, a plastic surgeon with a nihilistic streak and a taste for martinis; and his brother's girlfriend, a sexy Balkan immigrant with a love for all things American (racism included)--the recent past is unearthed along with revelations of failed marriages, fraternal hatred, infidelity and venereal disease, in the form of their daughter's nasty genital infection. And it's a comedy. As the story is gradually unfolded to their visitor, a Muslim cab driver, his relationship to the events becomes increasingly clear, as does the emptiness of the family's supposed benevolence and sensitivity. With its crashing emotion and cutting humor, this vicious dissection of the comfortable progressive life lays bare the lies that people use to feel righteous even as they veer off a genuinely ethical path.

When Raccoons Fall Through Your Ceiling: The Handbook for Coexisting with Wildlife

Product : When Raccoons Fall Through Your Ceiling: The Handbook for Coexisting with Wildlife
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Have you ever had raccoons fall through your ceiling? Discovered a nest of sparrows in your hanging flower basket? Or how about woke up one morning to discover deer have nibbled on your flower garden, reducing your blossoms to stems? If so, you're not alone. The paths of humans and wildlife cross all the time, and it is the aim of this handbook to make sure those paths cross as peacefully as possible. Andrea Dawn Lopez, a former manager at Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, Inc., in San Antonio, Texas, has distilled her knowledge of dealing with wildlife in When Raccoons Fall through Your Ceiling. She tackles a wide variety of situations that occur when human and non-human worlds clash. Have you found a baby bird on your porch? Is a snake taking up residence in your garage? Or perhaps woodpeckers are drumming against your house? Lopez offers advice on how to deal humanely with each situation with tips on relocation, repelling, and when to call in the experts (for when the bears are rattling your trash cans). Wildlife rehabilitators and state wildlife officers across the world spend many hours answering questions on the phone, teaching in classrooms, and going to people's homes to try and show them how to better co-habit with wild animals. When Raccoons Fall through Your Ceiling is a practical handbook to codify for the general public how to deal with wildlife-related problems and concerns. It will be of interest to wildlife rehabilitation centers, state wildlife agencies, veterinarians, and those fortunate enough to live in an area enhanced by wild birds, reptiles, and mammals.

Hackensack

Product : Hackensack
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Hackensack rose from humble beginnings as a pre-Colonial meeting place for the Achkenheshacky people, members of the Lenni-Lenape tribe. In 1614, Dutch fur traders were the first Europeans to come to the area. Ancient footpaths served the new settlers well, and some of these paths became roads that are still in use today. The most quintessentially American of these roads, Main Street, terminates at a place known as athe Green, a which provided a place to rest for a weary George Washington and his troops in 1776. It is also the site of the oldest church in Bergen County. Once a lure for New Yorkers seeking recreational outlets, Hackensack attracted many new permanent residents during the mid- to late 1800s. As the hub of Bergen County, the city led the way as the area moved away from its agrarian roots to a more industrialized society. In more recent times, Hackensack has been the birthplace of one of the seven original astronauts, home to the practice ice for three gold-medal-winning Olympic figure skaters, and a favorite lyric for singers and songwriters such as Billy Joel, Jimi Hendrix, Fountains of Wayne, and Johnny Cash.

Description : Violent, mystical, powerful, hot, sensual and sophisticated, red is the color, and this book celebrates it in its various incarnations in religion, fashion, design, medicine, architecture and contemporary art. See how red has been influential to Fellini and Kurosawa, James Turell, Picasso and Caravaggio. Witness the violent red of Andy Warhol or Cindy Sherman. The red of Buddhist rituals. The sophisticated red of geishas and lacquer, of Barragan and Villa Malaparte. The aggressive red of bordellos, lingerie, Nan Goldin and Barbara Kruger. The shocking red of bullfights. Linked in our imagination with the forbidden and the taboo, red provokes, fascinates, repulses and attracts, but never leaves indifferent.

Opium Wars: The Addiction of One Empire and the Corruption of Another

Product : Opium Wars: The Addiction of One Empire and the Corruption of Another
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this tragic and powerful story, the two Opium Wars of 1839-1842 and 1856-1860 between Britain and China are recounted for the first time through the eyes of the Chinese as well as the Imperial West. Opium entered China during the Middle Ages when Arab traders brought it into China for medicinal purposes. As it took hold as a recreational drug, opium wrought havoc on Chinese society. By the early nineteenth century, 90 percent of the Emperor's court and the majority of the army were opium addicts. Britain was also a nation addicted -- to tea, grown in China, and paid for with profits made from the opium trade. When China tried to ban the use of the drug and bar its Western smugglers from it gates, England decided to fight to keep open China's ports for its importation. England, the superpower of its time, managed to do so in two wars, resulting in a drug-induced devastation of the Chinese people that would last 150 years. In this page-turning, dramatic and colorful history, The Opium Wars responds to past, biased Western accounts by representing the neglected Chinese version of the story and showing how the wars stand as one of the monumental clashes between the cultures of East and West.

Phoenixville

Product : Phoenixville
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Phoenixville is a journey through time, looking into the nineteenth century and exploring the birth of a community just outside the reach of Philadelphia. The journey begins with the explosive growth of the 1880s and chronicles the town's evolution over the next one hundred years. Phoenixville is a cross section of evocative images and text, each destined to challenge the memory and entice curiosity. Postcards are used to illustrate places and events from a time when cameras were a new phenomenon, presenting a unique view of Phoenixville's social and industrial achievements, as seen through the eyes of its people. The images spark an array of interesting questions and insights. How did a business called the Swastika Company ever exist on Main Street? Were there really trolley tracks on Bridge Street? What happened to the glass dome that once adorned the top of the library? Phoenixville reveals that St. Ann's Catholic Church looks much the same now as it did in 1910, and little evidence still exists of the sprawling Phoenix Steel Corporation, which once spanned the length of town.

World Turned Upside Down: U.S. Naval Intelligence and the Early Cold War Struggle for Germany

Product : World Turned Upside Down: U.S. Naval Intelligence and the Early Cold War Struggle for Germany
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1955, after assignments at the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) and on board a destroyer, Marvin Durning arrived at ONI's office in Munich, Germany. During this year, he participated in the final stages of transforming Germany from a defeated enemy into a respected democracy, reestablishing its sovereignty, and shepherding its membership in NATO, which also involved rearming America's erstwhile foe. At that time, Munich, like Berlin, was a nerve center for the Cold War. It was crowded with U.S. troops and German and Slav refugees. Radio Free Europe called it home. The city was, Durning writes, "a jungle of competing secret intelligence organizations: British, French, American, Russian, West and East German, Czech, Polish, and others." Beneath the calm surface of everyday life in Munich roamed agents and double agents who witnessed defections, kidnappings, interrogations that ended in death, and assassinations by bomb explosions and by poison dart. "World Turned Upside Down" is Durning's account of such activities. Durning served as the de facto executive officer of a small office of German intelligence specialists tasked with routine navy issues. But much more was underway. Known only to his commander, himself, and the yeoman who typed the reports, former admirals of the defunct German Kriegsmarine attended secret meetings at his commander's house in the suburbs of Munich, where they worked to plan and create a future West German Navy. In addition, Durning served as a liaison officer to the Gehlen Organization, the supersecret German intelligence and espionage organization, and he recounts their activities here.

Comanche Bondage

Product : Comanche Bondage
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : No homeseekers were ever plagued with more bad luck than those who followed the Englishman John Charles Beales to southern Texas late in 1834. On the banks of Las Moras Creek, not far from the Rio Grande, they established the colony of Dolores. Among them were the British-born Sarah Ann Horn and her husband and two small sons. For the pretty Sarah Ann, who shared her neighbors' fear of Comanche raids, the year or so in Dolores was a preview of a special hell to come. The threat of an invasion by Santa Anna, an uncongenial climate, a lack of trees for lumber, an unnavigable river, crop failures, and a scarcity of commodities contributed to the colonists' discouragement and discord. In "Comanche Bondage" the distinguished southwestern historian Carl Coke Rister has written the history of the Dolores enterprise, drawing on Beale's journals and other documents, and including reports of the survivors. Leaving Dolores in the wake of news about the Alamo and Goliad disasters, the Horn family and their neighbors the Harrises headed toward Matamoras. They never arrived there. Later a broken Sarah Ann Horn told the horrifying story of the murder of the men and of the years of captivity she and Mrs. Harris and their children endured at the hands of the Comanches. Rister has edited and annotated her 1839 narrative, which complements and extends his account of Beales's folly.

Confessing a Murder

Product : Confessing a Murder
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A nameless narrator, abandoned on an island soon to be obliterated by volcanic activity, tells the story of his life and exile from England. The tale is as extraordinary for its observations of a surreal natural history as for the dark twistings of human nature it reveals. His particular interest is beetles-a passion he shares, most literally, with the idolized friend of his school years, Charles Darwin-and his reckless pursuit of the golden scarab has led him to a place that mirrors the Galapagos in the utter singularity of its fauna and flora. Blood-sucking mistletoe and amphibian swallows are but two of the fantastic species he records. Is this the diary of a madman? Or is it the story of why Darwin published the book that destroyed his belief in God? Fearlessly original in conception, this tale is as extraordinary for its observations of a surreal natural history as for the dark twistings of human nature it reveals.

Boomtown Saloons: Archaeology and History in Virginia City

Product : Boomtown Saloons: Archaeology and History in Virginia City
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The image of Old West saloons as sites of violence and raucous entertainment has been perpetuated by film and legend, but the true story of such establishments is far more complex. In Boomtown Saloons, archaeologist Kelly J. Dixon recounts the excavation of four historic saloon sites in Nevada's Virginia City, one of the West's most important boomtowns, and shows how the physical traces of this handful of disparate drinking places offer a new perspective on authentic life in the mining West. During the second half of the nineteenth century, the Comstock Lode's mineral wealth attracted people from all over the world. At its peak, Virginia City had a cosmopolitan population of over 20,000. Like people everywhere, they sought to pass their leisure time in congenial company, often in one or another of the four saloons studied here. Dixon's accounts of the role these four establishments played in the social and economic life of Virginia City offers keen insight into the businesses and people who made up the backdrop of a mining boomtown. The saloons in this study were quieter than legend would have us believe; they served relatively distinct groups and offered their customers a place of refuge, solidarity, and social contact with peers in a city where few people had longtime ties or initially any close contacts. Boomtown Saloons also offers an equally vivid portrait of the modern historical archaeologist who combines time-honored digging, reconstruction, and analysis methods with such cutting-edge technology as DNA analysis of saliva traces on a 150-year-old pipestem and chemical analysis of the residue in discarded condiment bottles. The book is illustrated with historical photographs andmaps, as well as photographs of artifacts uncovered during the excavations of the four sites. Dixon's sparkling text and thoughtful interpretation of evidence reveal an unknown aspect of daily life in one of the West's most storied boomtowns and demonstrate that, contrary to legend, the traditional Western saloon served a vital and complex social role in its community.

America's Dysfunctional Political System: Popular Distrust and Professional Government

Product : America's Dysfunctional Political System: Popular Distrust and Professional Government
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Popular distrust and the entrenchment of government by professionals lie at the root of America s most pressing political problems. How did U.S. politics get to this point? Contemporary American politics got much of its shape from the transformations brought about from the 1950s to the 1980s. Presidential and congressional behavior, voting behavior, public opinion, public policy and federalism were all reconfigured during that time and many of those changes persist to this day and structure the political environment in the early twenty-first century. Throughout American history, parties have been a reliable instrument for translating majority preferences into public policy. From the 1950s to the 1980s, a gradual antiparty realignment, alongside the growth of professional government, produced a new American political system of remarkable durability and remarkable dysfunction. It is a system that it is paradoxically stable despite witnessing frequent shifts in party control of the institutions of government at the state and national level. Schier and Eberly's system-level view of American politics demonstrates the disconnect between an increasingly polarized and partisan elite and an increasingly disaffected mass public.

Wildfire: A Century of Failed Forest Policy

Product : Wildfire: A Century of Failed Forest Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Wildfires are an awe-inspiring natural phenomenon that have shaped North America's landscapes since the dawn of time. They are a force that we cannot really control, and thus understanding, appreciating, and learning to live with wildfire is ultimately our wisest public policy. With more than 150 dramatic photographs, Wildfire: A Century of Failed Forest Policy covers the topic of wildfire from ecological, economic, and social/political perspectives while also documenting how past forest policies have hindered natural processes, creating a tinderbox of problems that we are faced with today. More than 25 leading thinkers in the field of fire ecology provide in-depth analyses, critiques, and compelling solutions for how we live with fire in our society. Using examples such as the epic Yellowstone fires of 1988, the ever-present southern California fires, and the Northwest's Biscuit Fire of 2002, the book examines the ecology of these landscapes and the policies and practices that affected them and continue to affect them, such as fire suppression, prescribed burns, salvage logging, and land-use planning. Overall, the book aims to promote the restoration of fire to the landscape and to encourage its natural behavior so it can resume its role as a major ecological process.
