Paul Revere's Ride

Product : Paul Revere's Ride
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Paul Revere and his famous ride were immortalized by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in a poem published in 1861, more than eighty years after the event. Longfellow wrote the poem at the time of the Civil War. He hoped that his story of an ordinary citizen who comes to the aid of his country would stir patriotic feelings and support for the Union. He was right. In fact, if it hadn't been for Longfellow, Paul Revere may have remained a local legend. The poem fired the imaginations of Americans, and a national hero was born. This illustrated edition of the classic poem features vivid oil paintings by Monica Vachula, whose research into period and place can be seen in the smallest detail. A concluding note by historian Jayne Triber, author of A True Republican: The Life of Paul Revere, explores the poem and Paul Revere's place in American history.

A Wayward Angel: The Full Story of the Hell's Angels, by the Former Vice President of the Oakland Chapter

Product : A Wayward Angel: The Full Story of the Hell's Angels, by the Former Vice President of the Oakland Chapter
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Hell's Angels. The name conjures up images of toughs on Harleys terrorizing the law-abiding; of wild brawls and wild sex; of drugs and cruelty, beatings, and even murder. Their lifestyle, we think, is horrifying, but it's also perversely fascinating, for there's an alluring freedom in such nihilism. Still, nobody knows what it's like to be an Angel except an Angel-an Angel like George Wethern, for many years the vice president of the Oakland Chapter. Until he found himself in reluctant service to the courts, Wethern was the quintessential Angel, tough as they come, one of the most important drug dealers on the West Coast-a man who loved bikes, fights, women, and drugs; a man who knew the deepest secrets of Angel life. Arrested, strung out on drugs, in despair, he testified in several major trials against Angel members-and then went into hiding. In A Wayward Angel, we witness killings, drug deals worth millions, "picnics" that are nothing short of orgies, the inner codes and inner workings of the club and its bizarre initiation rites. It is a vivid portrait of the chaos of postwar California, the awful early collision of the drug scene and the alienation of modern life, a story as American as can be. This is a powerful book, and not for the squeamish; but it's fascinating and important, terrifying because it's real.

Extra Ordinary: An Amusing Guide for Unleashing Your Creativity

Product : Extra Ordinary: An Amusing Guide for Unleashing Your Creativity
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When was the last time you saw the beauty in everyday objects? If youAEre like most people, you probably havenAEt paid much attention. To change all that, the authors of "Extra Ordinary" spotlight the simplest of objects and seemingly reinvent them into something new and unique. In a world of high-tech and mass production, people live in a world ruled by excess, over stimulation, and even waste. "Within this existence, the role of creatives shouldnAEt exclusively be to meet client demands, or act as a vehicle for innovation, but to question the idea of the ordinary," the authors say. This book will help designers reinvigorate their creativity and observe what they would normally ignore, discard, or forget. The authors do this by taking objects such as a bra, tofu, and plastic spoons, and transform them into an evening bag, a pencil holder, or a pair of eyeglasses. Each of the new products created from the things that surround us, is accompanied by hand-drawn illustrations and simple written explanations. The package is immediate, punchy, silly, and yet completely hysterical.

The Power of Appreciation in Everyday Life

Product : The Power of Appreciation in Everyday Life
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One of the biggest stumbling blocks we hit when setting out to make our dreams come true is appreciating what is going well. Most of us have an unfortunate tendency to dwell on the problems rather than on the good things in our lives... and then we wonder why things just seem to keep getting worse instead of better. In "The Power of Appreciation in Everyday Life," psychologist Noelle Nelson explains how you can achieve success in every area of your life through transforming your beliefs with appreciation. "The Power of Appreciation In Everyday Life" is especially profound when it examines how appreciation can transform relationships. Relationships at work, with your family and with friends can all prosper when using appreciation's powerful force. Appreciation is a remarkably strong untapped energy every one of us possesses. We just need to know how to use it. Science confirms that when you think and feel appreciation (not simple gratitude, but powerful valuing), amazing changes happen from a calming of our heartbeat and ncreased brain function to successful and satisfying interactions at home and at work. All it takes is a change in focus. With "The Power of Appreciation in Everyday Life," you will discover what makes appreciation such a dynamic force and learn specific ways to use appreciation to take charge of your life and get the results you want at home, at work and in love Dr. Noelle C. Nelson is a noted author, psychologist and trial consultant. Her books include "Everyday Miracles" and "Winner Takes All." Please feel free to visit her at www.noellenelson.com.

I Heart Your Fate

Product : I Heart Your Fate
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The poems of Anthony McCann are beautiful, brutal, and unerring. They present us with, or return us to, a complicated, violent, poignant, weird, and mysterious world--a world which is very particularly his, and also our own, re-sung. For some time now I have believed McCann to be one of the finest poets writing today, and as "I Heart Your Fate" makes clear, he is only getting better."--Maggie Nelson, author of "Bluets" and "The Art of Cruelty" In his third collection of poetry, Anthony McCann fuses the worlds of dream, art, love, and brute humanity, taking the redemptive power of the romantic to new and surprising extremes. "I don't have a body to feel afraid," writes McCann, and these poems, bald and imaginative, almost convince the reader it must be so, save for the fact that they are so vitally, essentially human. From "Of the Mockingbird": "So that once again, beloved readers, I find that I have died. I die each time inside my body each time I eat your food-- O World (By which I always mean THE LIGHT)" "Or let's just say there's a forehead between my body and the light and it deactivates the World" Anthony McCann was born and raised in the Hudson Valley. His previous books include "Moongarden "and "Father of Noise." He lives in Los Angeles, where he teaches in the School of Critical Studies at the California Institute of the Arts and works with Machine Project.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Have you ever ignored a coincidence and wished you hadn't? Have you ever disregarded a hunch that was later proved as fact? Have you ever had a dream...and watched it come true? If prayer is about talking to God, Signs and Wonders is about listening for God's answers. Albert Clayton Gaulden, founder and director of the Sedona Intensive, believes that God speaks to us personally in a language that is rich in symbol and coincidence, offering messages and guidance we can put to use every day to solve our problems and gain peace, joy, and direction. In Signs and Wonders, Gaulden teaches us how to open ourselves up to the language of God, and open ourselves to a more meaningful life. How can we listen to God? How can God help us to understand the answers to our prayers? How can we learn to ward off worry, fear, doubt, and despair? Signs and Wonders contains practical strategies, anecdotes, case studies, and stories of personal transformation that can help us to clear God's channel -- the way we listen -- and master a new form of communication. For when we learn to be receptive to God's language, we can begin to benefit from its grace.

Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years: Volume 1: Made for America, 1890-1901

Product : Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years: Volume 1: Made for America, 1890-1901
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years" redefines the historical memory of Emma Goldman and illuminates a forgotten yet influential facet of the history of American and European radicalism. This definitive multivolume work, which differs significantly from Goldman's autobiography, presents original texts--a significant group of which are published in or translated into English for the first time--anchored by rigorous contextual annotations. The distillation of years of scholarly research, these volumes include personal correspondence, newspaper articles, government surveillance reports from America and Europe, dramatic court transcripts, unpublished lecture notes, and an array of other rare items and documentation. Biographical, newspaper, and organizational appendixes are complemented by in-depth chronologies that underscore the complexity of Goldman's political and social milieu. The first volume, "Made for America, 1890-1901, " tracks the young Emma Goldman's introduction into the anarchist movement, features her earliest known writings in the German anarchist press, and charts her gradual emergence from the radical immigrant circles of New York City's Lower East Side into a political and intellectual culture of both national and international importance. Goldman's remarkable public ascendance is framed within a volatile period of political violence: within the first few pages, Henry Clay Frick, the anti-union industrialist, is shot by Alexander Berkman, Goldman's lover; the book ends with the assassination of President William McKinley, an act in which Goldman was falsely implicated. The documents surrounding these events shed light on difficult issues--and spark an important though chilling debate about Goldman's strategy for reconciling her "beautiful vision" of anarchism and the harsh realities of her times. The documents articulate the force of Goldman's rage, tracing the development of her political and social critique as well as her originality and her remarkable ability to synthesize and popularize cutting-edge political and cultural ideas. Goldman appears as a rising luminary in the mainstream press--a voice against hypocrisy and a lightning rod of curiosity, intrigue, and sometimes fear. The volumes include newspaper accounts of the speaking tours across America that eventually established her reputation as one of the most challenging and passionate orators of the twentieth century. Themes that came to dominate Goldman's life--anarchism and its possibilities, free speech, education, the transformative power and social significance of literature, the position of labor within the capitalist economic system, the vital importance of women's freedom, the dynamics of personal relationships, and strategies for a social revolution--are among the many introduced in "Made for America."

Aunties: Thirty-Five Writers Celebrate Their Other Mother

Product : Aunties: Thirty-Five Writers Celebrate Their Other Mother
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An aunt is not just another mother--and aunts defy any sort of archetypal image. Like humanity, they span the spectrum, from down-home Auntie Em to the uninhibited Auntie Mame. Some aunts are smart, others are crazy. Some act bravely, others downright foolish. Now in Ingrid Sturgis's marvelous "Aunties," she gives these extraordinary women their due, sharing a wonderful, eclectic collection of thirty personal essays that explore the complex, seldom-profiled bond between aunts and their nieces and nephews. Profiling a variety of aunts from different cultures, temperaments, and walks of life--the surrogate mother, the wild aunt, the eccentric aunt, the mentor--the essays are written by well-known journalists and authors such as Pearl Cleage and M.J. Rose, as well as everyday people . . . all of whom bring their subjects to stirring life in their own unique ways. "Tia Sonia" made her living as an old-world witch in Honduras, providing her niece, Beverly James, with a tenuous connection to the country of her birth--and imparting a valuable lesson after she fails to predict her own tragic demise; the dramatic and glamorous "Tropical Aunts"--also known as Aunt Debs and Aunt Ava--ventured north from Florida only twice, but left an indelible mark on Enid Shomer's ideas about being an independent woman; in the heartwarming "Bloodsense," Mark Holt-Shannon's magical Aunt Lolly, a woman with a heart as big as the ocean, provided unconditional love--and a bridge between three boys and the father who left them all behind. A wonderful celebration of family, "Aunties "is a labor of the heart and a show of reverence to the women whose intangible gifts of love and respect often pass without recognition. Through the vivid memories of real relationships, these narratives pay tribute to aunts everywhere.

Description : The gripping true story of James Ashcroft's audacious return to war-torn Iraq to save his friend "The Mission: Get in. Rescue an entire family from death on teh streets of Baghdad. Get everyone out alive. """ "The Pay: Saving the life of a friend." In James Ashcroft's first book, "Making a Killing," his escape from death at the hands of insurgents in Iraq was thanks to the bravery of his interpreter and friend Sammy, a Sunni ex-Iraqi air force pilot. Now, a call for help means Ash must take a break from chasing pirates in West Africa and return to the chaos of war-torn Baghdad. Abandoned by the occupying Coalition Forces and at the mercy of the Shia-dominated Iraqi police, Sammy and his family face certain death unless Ash and his crack team can get in and quickly rescue them. From secretly acquiring weapons on the black market to dodging the fearsome death squads that roam the streets and the suicide bombers that wreak havoc on a daily basis, this is the story of a vulnerable family adrift in the chaos of war, where the only thing that can be relied upon is the bond between former brothers-in-arms. And this time, these guns-for-hire who come with a hefty price tag aren't even being paid--this time, it's personal.

Asia's Next Giant: South Korea and Late Industrialization

Product : Asia's Next Giant: South Korea and Late Industrialization
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : While the rise of Japan in the world economy has been widely chronicled, South Korea has been quietly growing into a major economic force that is even challenging Japan in some industries. This book examines how government in South Korea has worked with selected industries to create companies that compete aggressively in world markets. The author views South Korean growth as an example of "late industrialization," a process in which a nation's industries learn from other innovator nations, rather than innovate themselves. Discussing state intervention, shop floor management, and technology transfer, the author explores the reason for South Korea's phenomenal growth. Of particular importance is the principle of reciprocity in which the government imposes strict performance standards on those industries and companies that it aids. The author also compares the South Korean experience to Japan's, and to other emerging nations such as Taiwan, Brazil, Turkey, India, and Mexico.

As We Forgive Our Debtors: Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in America

Product : As We Forgive Our Debtors: Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Bankruptcy in America is a booming business. Hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans each year have joined giant corporations, like Johns Manville and Continental Airlines, and once-wealthy individuals, like John Connally, in filing for bankruptcy. Is this dramatic growth a result of mushrooming debt--consumer debt and consumer bankruptcy have both more than doubled since the late 1970s--or does it reflect a moreal decline that permits the middle class to evade their debts? As We Forgive Our Debtors addresses these questions with the data gathered in the largest empirical study of consumer bankruptcy ever done in this country. The authors of this mulit-disciplinary study describe the law and the statistics in clear, nontechnical language, combining a thorough statistical description of the social and economic position of consumer bankrupts with human portraits of the debtors and creditors whose journey has ended in bankruptcy court. In addition to an overall picture of bankruptcy, As We Forgive Our Debtors devotes several chapters to hidden subgroups in bankruptcy. One focuses on women, analyzing the desperate financial circumstances of single women and the increasing pressure on one-income families. Another reveals that more than half of the bankrupts are homeowners and discusses the anomalies in the way they are treated by current law. Other chapters examine the surprising role of medical debts in financial collapse and give a new account of the financial pressures on small businesses. The book also provides the first detailed analysis ever done of the position of various types of creditors whose debtors go bankrupt. This book is destined to become a standard reference for sociologists who study wealth and income and for every credit manager in America. It will also bring to the legal and political debates about bankruptcy law hard facts that will help legal scholars in many fields to measure the distance between armchair theorizing and the law in action.

Product : The Man Who Discovered Flight: George Cayley and the First Airplane
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The father of flight is restored to his proper place by this compelling new biography. In 1799, one hundred years before the Wright Brothers' historic flights at Kitty Hawk, Sir George Cayley had engraved, on a silver disc about the size of a British shilling, both the design for an airplane and the earliest recorded description of the forces by which a wing can fly. Through his work, Cayley was the first to recognize and document the two opponent-paired forces of flight: weight and lift, thrust and drag. These discoveries culminated in the invention of the first practical airplanes. Cayley, his grandson John, and the ever supportive resident engineer Mr. Vick formed a team that would finally conquer the air. Aged seventy-five, Cayley and his little group developed a series of advanced models and in 1849 they finally flew a full-sized glider with a crew consisting of a ten-year-old boy. Shortly before his eightieth birthday, Cayley would build the machine which launched the world's first heavier-than-air aviator. Yet within less than a generation of his death Cayley's name would be virtually forgotten. The "father of aviation" would remain unknown to all but a tiny group who followed his pioneering work. In this compelling and popular account, Richard Dee tells the story of this remarkable man and his remarkable time. Using interviews with Cayley's remaining family and new research, Dee unravels the mysteries of Cayley's gliders and finally reveals the name of the first man to fly by airplane.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In a compelling chronicle of her search to understand Beauvoir's philosophy in The Second Sex, Margaret A. Simons offers a unique perspective on Beauvoir's wide-ranging contribution to twentieth-century thought. She details the discovery of the origins of Beauvoir's existential philosophy in her hand-written diary from 1927; uncovers evidence of the sexist exclusion of Beauvoir from the philosophical canon; reveals evidence that the African-American writer Richard Wright provided Beauvoir with the theoretical model of oppression that she used in The Second Sex; shows the influence of The Second Sex in transforming Sartre's philosophy and in laying the theoretical foundations of radical feminism; and addresses feminist issues of racism, motherhood, and lesbian identity.

Critical Jurisprudence: The Political Philosophy of Justice

Product : Critical Jurisprudence: The Political Philosophy of Justice
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Provocative, engaging and insightful, Critical Jurisprudence challenges the reader to question dominant readings of the law, tracing a tradition of critical thought that has always haunted the orthodoxy. This work departs from the usual debates that dominate jurisprudence. Its key thesis is that the entire jurisprudential tradition needs to be re-assessed. The book offers an exploration of the work of philosophers and social and political theorists whose work has not traditionally been seen as jurisprudential. Offering an introduction and interpretation of thought that has been criticized or dismissed as obscure, the book argues that law has always been at the heart of philosophy and social theory, but that it is necessary to expand the jurisprudential canon; to take the subject out of its self imposed ghetto, and to open dialogues between traditions seen as irreconcilable. This allows a radical rethinking of the nature of rights, justice, sovereignty and other foundational concepts. The law's complicity with political oppression, violence and racism has to be faced before it is possible to speak of a new beginning for legal thought, which in turn is the necessary precondition for a theory of justice.

Social Dimensions of Climate Change: Equity and Vulnerability in a Warming World

Product : Social Dimensions of Climate Change: Equity and Vulnerability in a Warming World
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Climate change is arguably the most profound challenge facing the international community in the 21st century. It is as much a challenge for poverty reduction, growth and development as it is a global environmental issue. It could undermine or reverse progress in reducing poverty and attaining the Millenium Development Goals, thereby unraveling many of the development gains of recent decades. It already threatens the livelihoods, health and well-being of millions of people worldwide, and of the poorest and most vulnerable groups in particular. And it has potentially far-reaching implications for international relations and for personal, national and regional security.While significant uncertainties still remain, tremendous strides have been made over recent years in improving scientific understanding of the human processes driving global climate change and the likely impacts on world ecosystems. What is much less well understood is how these dynamics in the physical environment will interact with those of socio-economic systems, what the consequences will be for society, and how best to address them. In order to focus attention on these previously neglected and poorly understood social dimensions of climate change, the World Bank convened an international workshop in March, 2008, with the participation of community activists, former heads of state, leaders of Indigenous Peoples, representatives of non-governmental organizations, international researchers, and staff of the World Bank and other international development agencies. This edited volume brings together revised versions of many of the papers presented during that workshop, as an initial step in taking stock of existing knowledge on the social dimensions of climate change. Several new papers were also commissioned for this volume.

Product : Film After Jung: Post-Jungian Approaches to Film Theory
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Popular film as a medium of communication, expression and storytelling has proved one of the most durable and fascinating cultural forms to emerge during the twentieth century, and has long been the object of debate, discussion and interpretation. Film After Jung provides the reader with an overview of the history of film theory and delves into analytical psychology to consider the reaction that popular film can evoke through emotional and empathetic engagement with its audience. This book includes:
  • an introduction to film scholarship
  • discussions of key Jungian concepts
  • Post-Jungian film studies beyond film.
It also considers the potential for post-Jungian contributions to film studies, and the ways in which these can help to enrich the lives of those undergoing clinical analysis. Film After Jung encourages students of film and psychology to explore the insights and experiences of everyday life that film has to offer by applying Post-Jungian concepts to film, image construction, narrative, and issues in cultural theory. It will enhance the film studenta (TM)s knowledge of film engagement as well as introducing the Jungian analyst to previously unexplored traditions in film theory.

Petersburg Fin de Siecle

Product : Petersburg Fin de Siecle
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The final decade of the old order in imperial Russia was a time of both crisis and possibility, an uncertain time that inspired an often desperate search for meaning. This book explores how journalists and other writers in St. Petersburg described and interpreted the troubled years between the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917. Mark Steinberg, distinguished historian of Russia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, examines the work of writers of all kinds, from anonymous journalists to well-known public intellectuals, from secular liberals to religious conservatives. Though diverse in their perspectives, these urban writers were remarkably consistent in the worries they expressed. They grappled with the impact of technological and material progress on the one hand, and with an ever-deepening anxiety and pessimism on the other. Steinberg reveals a new, darker perspective on the history of St. Petersburg on the eve of revolution and presents a fresh view of Russia's experience of modernity.

The Intestines of the State: Youth, Violence, and Belated Histories in the Cameroon Grassfields

Product : The Intestines of the State: Youth, Violence, and Belated Histories in the Cameroon Grassfields
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The young people of the Cameroon Grassfields have been subject to a long history of violence and political marginalization. For centuries the main victims of the slave trade, they became prime targets for forced labor campaigns under a series of colonial rulers. Today's youth remain at the bottom of the fiercely hierarchical and polarized societies of the Grassfields, and it is their response to centuries of exploitation that Nicolas Argenti takes up in this absorbing and original book. Beginning his study with a political analysis of youth in the Grassfields from the eighteenth century to the present, Argenti pays special attention to the repeated violent revolts staged by young victims of political oppression. He then combines this history with extensive ethnographic fieldwork in the Oku chiefdom, discovering that the specter of past violence lives on in the masked dance performances that have earned intense devotion from today's youth. Argenti contends that by evoking the imagery of past cataclysmic events, these masquerades allow young Oku men and women to address the inequities they face in their relations with elders and state authorities today.

Out of Eden: Adam and Eve and the Problem of Evil

Product : Out of Eden: Adam and Eve and the Problem of Evil
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In "Out of Eden," Paul W. Kahn offers a philosophical meditation on the problem of evil. He uses the Genesis story of the Fall as the starting point for a profound articulation of the human condition. Kahn shows us that evil expresses the rage of a subject who knows both that he is an image of an infinite God and that he must die. Kahn's interpretation of Genesis leads him to inquiries into a variety of modern forms of evil, including slavery, torture, and genocide. Kahn takes issue with Hannah Arendt's theory of the banality of evil, arguing that her view is an instance of the modern world's lost capacity to speak of evil. Psychological, social, and political accounts do not explain evil as much as explain it away. Focusing on the existential roots of evil rather than on the occasions for its appearance, Kahn argues that evil originates in man's flight from death. He urges us to see that the opposite of evil is not good, but love: while evil would master death, love would transcend it. Offering a unique perspective that combines political and cultural theory, law, and philosophy, Kahn here continues his project of advancing a political theology of modernity.

The Paintings of William Blake

Product : The Paintings of William Blake
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the most accessible introduction available to one of the greatest British artists. The art of William Blake unites visionary simplicity with profound complexity of thought. In this illuminating new study, illustrated throughout in colour, Raymond Lister provides an engaging and lucid approach to Blake's paintings, fully alive to their infinite power of suggestion and refreshingly unfettered by polemic. The biographical introduction, making extensive use of Blake's writings and of contemporary accounts of him, traces the vicissitudes of this absolutely individual artist's life; his very human nature is revealed, no less than his boundless creative energies. The seventy-five colour plates represent the whole span of Blake's working life and all the major areas of his art: his biblical pictures, his allegorical subjects and his illuminated books, which he wrote, engraved and decorated himself. The detailed commentary to each plate explores as much of his symbolism as is readily comprehensible, and explains his often idiosyncratic techniques.

Description : A Cultural History of the American Novel interweaves a wide selection of the novels of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries with a series of cultural events ranging from Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show to the "Southern Renaissance" of the 1930s. Minter rereads the novels of the period as works of art that arise from and that remain embedded in culture, arguing conversely that cultural events differ in degree but not in kind from novels. Portrayed as provocative fusions of the real and the imagined, novels and events are made to yield insight into the structures and procedures of American society as well as the structures and procedures of the American imagination, during a critical era of national transformation.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Women comprise an ever-increasing percentage of the candidate pool for elective office in the United States. Public opinion surveys profess strong support for female candidates, yet many of these same candidates still encounter skepticism (at best) or hostility (at worst) from the public. The role of candidate gender in elections is a complex one. Yet, our understanding of how voters react to these women is often based on election-specific, anecdotal, or hypothetical evidence. "Voting for Women" is one of the first book-length treatments of both how the public evaluates female candidates and whether and when people will support them at the polls. It also provides a history of women and elections in the U.S. and analysis of contemporary data on how voting environments can influence women's success.

Judaism: An Introduction

Product : Judaism: An Introduction
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The story of Judaism is a story of paradox. It is the story of how a small cluster of desert tribes gave birth to a monotheistic doctrine that profoundly shaped the history of human civilization. It is the story of how that initially obscure desert doctrine came to be codified into the Hebrew Bible, one of the world's greatest works of literature. It is the story of how a small minority came to be viewed by the majority as disproportionately powerful and, following pogrom and Holocaust, were driven to the edge of extinction. And it is the story of how a displaced people, globally dispersed throughout other nations for two-and-a-half millennia, came to forge a modern, secular Israeli state which many Jews believe to have been granted an explicitly divine mandate. Oliver Leaman carefully and creatively explores the nature of these apparent contradictions. He discusses the origins of the Jewish Bible; recounts the history of the Jewish people from the era of Patriarchs and Prophets through the Middle Ages up to the contemporary era; outlines the Jewish liturgical calendar and its major rites and modes of worship; and considers the great variety of Jewish literatures (including modern post-Holocaust writers like Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel), art, food and culture. Further chapters examine such topics as mysticism and kabbalah; modern Hebrew; interfaith relations; and the highly contested question, "Who is a Jew?."

We Are Rich

Product : We Are Rich
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The little, leafy town of Rancho Esperanza has been a perfect place to live for over a century-a bastion of good, solid, Anglo-Saxon, Republican money. These founding fathers built their gracious estates and country club and fondly called their town, "Ohio by the Sea." There was only one traffic light and time seemed to stop at the freeway off ramp. Then came the Clinton years and the invasion of the New American Ruling Class: New York hedge fund managers, Hollywood producers, and Silicon Valley billionaires. Almost overnight, real estate prices quadruple, horse pastures vanish, tuna tartare and arugula appear on every menu, and a Democratic congresswoman is elected by a landslide. The Old Guard aristocrats of yesterday are now irrelevant and the only power they have is keeping the Kornblatts out of their country club. Twelve characters with distinctly different voices tell their tales of lust and longing spanning the years from World War II to the present-each story a piece of the jigsaw puzzle. The pieces all fit together until the secrets and lies, guarded for generations, are revealed, changing everything we thought was true about Rancho Esperanza and the people who live there. Written as a novel in stories, Dori Carter's social satire gets into the hearts and souls of her characters, and presents a fresh look at our attitudes toward money and the ever-shifting nature of status in America.

Rap and the Eroticizing of Black Youth

Product : Rap and the Eroticizing of Black Youth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Showing that in its early days rap music led to black consciousness, this discussion goes on to argue that the current preoccupations of rap--especially the erotic themes expressed and their dramatization in music videos--have led to an unthinking youthful acceptance of profanity, vulgarity, sexual abuse, and violence. The book advocates for a return to rap's origins, for young people to become more selective and critical of today's music, and for parents to take a more active role in monitoring their children's listening habits.

Men, Women, and Aggression

Product : Men, Women, and Aggression
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Why are men more aggressive than women? To find out, psychologist and criminologist Anne Campbell listened to the voices of ordinary men and women, as well as people for whom aggression is a central fact of life--robbers and gang members. The answer, she argues, lies not only in biology or in child rearing but in how men and women form opinions about their own aggression. Women believe their aggression results from a loss of self-control, while men see their behavior as a means of gaining control over others. Daughters are deeply ashamed when they get angry, but sons learn to associate aggression with integrity, courage, and triumph. Campbell shows how men's and women's different views of anger and restraint profoundly affect their actions--from rage in marriage to violence in the streets--and what this means for us all. The misreading of the meaning of aggression drives a wedge between the sexes, affecting everything from their ability to communicate with each other to the way that traditionally male-dominated spheres such as law or medicine pathologize and punish women's aggression. The book draws together two research areas that have had little dialogue with one another--aggression and gender differences--to present for the first time a theory of their interrelationship. The book also reveals the links between criminal violence and psychological processes common to all of us. A major contribution in the tradition of "You Just Don't Understand" and "In a Different Voice," this book offers a new understanding of a vital issue.

Town House

Product : Town House
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jack Madigan is, by many accounts, blessed. He can still effortlessly turn a pretty head. And thanks to his legendary rock star father, he lives an enviable existence in a once-glorious, now-crumbling Boston town house with his teenage son, Harlan. But there is one tiny drawback: Jack is an agoraphobe. As long as his dad's admittedly dwindling royalties keep rolling in, Jack's condition isn't a problem. But then the money runs out . . . and all hell breaks loose. The bank is foreclosing. Jack's ex is threatening to take Harlan to California. And Lucinda, the little girl next door, won't stay out of his kitchen . . . or his life. To save his sanity, Jack's path is clear, albeit impossible--he must outwit the bank's adorably determined real estate agent, win back his house, keep his son at home, and, finally, with Lucinda's help, find a way back to the world outside his door.

Hannibal's March: Alps & Elephants

Product : Hannibal's March: Alps & Elephants
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : One of the mysteries surrounding Hannibal's famous march on Rome during the Second Punic War is the actual route his Carthaginian army took from Spain across the Alps and onto the plains of Italy. Even during Julius Caesar's time it was the subject of much speculation. The march is popularly known for both the elephants that accompanied the expedition and the use of heat and vinegar to break boulders that blocked their way, but it was not until 1955 that Gaving R. De Beer, Director of the British Museum, established what is considered to be the most probable route Hannibal's army took. The author not only scoured ancient accounts, he consulted astronomers, geologists, climatologists, and philologists, and retraced the route himself using classical sources and the information supplied by experts as his guide. The result is a delightful, erudite account, reprinted here for the first time in paperback. "A book in which lively writing and scholarly research are happily mated. Moreover, it is convincing."--"New York Times" "The most notable quality in this study--apart from its sturdy practicality and common sense--is the readiness with which its author avails himself of the most diverse varieties of evidence."--"Times Literary Supplement" "Those who read this book will discover that, as treated by Sir Gavin, the subject is a fascinating one. Here is no parched parchment study, but an on-the-spot exploration of roads and rivers daily traversed by thousands."--"Christian Science Monitor"
