The Tao of Dreaming

Product : The Tao of Dreaming
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A holistic approach to dreams, health, and healing that blends the wisdom of East and West. An expert in Western dream interpretation joins a doctor of Oriental medicine to help readers delve into their dreams-and emerge with the gifts of health, personal growth, change, and problem solving. In this unique book, the principles of Taoism-a holistic treatment of body-mind-spirit, the balance of yin and yang, and the five basic elements-serve as a backdrop for dream exploration and interpretation. Each of these is essential to the health and function of body-mind-spirit-- and, as this guide shows, is key to unlocking one's dreams. Western dreamwork, on the other hand, emphasizes the hidden, unconscious meanings of dreams. Never before has Western thought complemented Eastern principles so well. Now readers can take advantage of both worlds. This guide includes: - A comprehensive glossary of dream objects, symbols, actions, and animals - Exercises using Eastern and Western wisdom to develop dreamwork techniques - Guidance on action to take for healing, growth, and change - Sample dreams and their interpretations using the Tao of Dreaming method - Worksheets for dream study

The American Encounter: The United States and the Making of the Modern World: Essays from 75 Years of Foreign Affairs

Product : The American Encounter: The United States and the Making of the Modern World: Essays from 75 Years of Foreign Affairs
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Since its founding in 1922, Foreign Affairs has been the world's leading journal of international relations, a distinction earned by providing the most insightful and far-reaching commentary on global politics and economic policy available anywhere. America has increasingly played a pivotal role in world events, whether military, political, economic, or ideological, and Foreign Affairs and its contributors have been at the center of each debate. It was in Foreign Affairs that George Kennan first proposed the policy of containment that became the touchstone of U.S. strategy during the Cold War; that statesmen-scholars like Henry Kissinger and Arthur Schlesinger have debated the contentious issues of nuclear weapons and human rights; that journalists like Walter Lippmann and James Reston have offered prescient analyses of American foreign policy; and that thinkers like Isaiah Berlin and Samuel Huntington have explained the changing nature of the world. In The American Encounter, readers will find these landmark essays and many more in a unique intellectual history of this century and of the extraordinary role that America has played in it. There is no other book like this, because there is no other publication like Foreign Affairs. The American Encounter is a powerful link to the giants of history, those visionaries whose warnings and advice still speak to us today, offering wisdom, insight, and a greater understanding of America's place in the world.

Strangers to the Law: Gay People on Trial

Product : Strangers to the Law: Gay People on Trial
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1992, the voters of Colorado passed a ballot initiative amending the state constitution to prevent the state or any local government from adopting any law or policy that protected a person with a homosexual, lesbian, or bisexual orientation from discrimination. This amendment was immediately challenged in the courts as a denial of equal protection of the laws under the United States Constitution. This litigation ultimately led to a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court invalidating the Colorado ballot initiative. Suzanne Goldberg, an attorney involved in the case from the beginning on behalf of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, and Lisa Keen, a journalist who covered the initiative campaign and litigation, tell the story of this case, providing an inside view of this complex and important litigation. Starting with the background of the initiative, the authors tell us about the debates over strategy, the court proceedings, and the impact of each stage of the litigation on the parties involved. The authors explore the meaning of legal protection for gay people and the arguments for and against the Colorado initiative. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of civil rights protections for gay people and the evolution of what it means to be gay in contemporary American society and politics. In addition, it is a rich story well told, and will be of interest to the general reader and scholars working on issues of civil rights, majority-minority relations, and the meaning of equal rights in a democratic society. Suzanne Goldberg is an attorney with the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund. Lisa Keen is Senior Editor at the "Washington Blade" newspaper.

Dirty Water: One Man's Fight to Clean Up One of the World's Most Polluted Bays

Product : Dirty Water: One Man's Fight to Clean Up One of the World's Most Polluted Bays
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Dirty Water" is the riveting story of how Howard Bennett, a Los Angeles schoolteacher with a gift for outrageous rhetoric, fought pollution in Santa Monica Bay--and won. The story begins in 1985, when many scientists considered the bay to be one of the most polluted bodies of water in the world. The insecticide DDT covered portions of the sea floor. Los Angeles discharged partially treated sewage into its waters. Lifeguards came down with mysterious illnesses. And Howard Bennett happily swam in it every morning. By accident, Bennett learned that Los Angeles had applied for a waiver from the Clean Water Act to continue discharging sewage into the bay. Incensed that he had been swimming in dirty water, Bennett organized oddball coalition to orchestrate stunts such as wrapping brown ribbon around LA's city hall and issuing Dirty Toilet Awards to chastise the city's administration. This is the fast-paced story of how this unusual cast of characters created an environmental movement in Los Angeles that continues to this day with the nationally recognized Heal the Bay. Character-driven, compelling, and uplifting, "Dirty Water "tells how even the most polluted water can be cleaned up-by ordinary people.

The Third Witch

Product : The Third Witch
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Rebecca Reisert's mesmerizing first novel re-imagines "Macbeth, Shakespeare's classic tragedy of power and madness, through the eyes of a mysterious young woman on a dangerous quest for vengeance. For the girl called Gilly, life in the wilds of Birnam Wood is little more than a desperate struggle for survival. Seven long years have passed since she was first taken in and sheltered by Nettle and Mad Helga, the hut-dwelling wise-women whose inscrutable powers of alchemy and prophecy are feared and reviled throughout good King Duncan's kingdom. Living under the threat of deadly persecution by witch-hunting villagers, the threesome ekes out a life by peddling potions and elixirs, scavenging for food, and robbing the bloodied corpses of Scotland's battle-scarred hills for precious metals and weapons. But Gilly is haunted by recollections of a much brighter life. She clings to fading memories of a time when she was contented and adored -- until tragedy swept all that happiness away and young Gilly's life was changed forever. "I have made my life an arrow, and His heart is my home. I have made my heart a blade, and His heart is my sheath....Obsessed with avenging her loss and putting out the fire that still rages in her heart, Gilly has dedicated herself to destroying Macbeth, the boundlessly ambitious man who took away her childhood, and his goading wife. Disguising herself as a poor servant boy, she insinuates herself into their lives and, as she bears horrified witness to Macbeth's violent path to power, Gilly subtly begins to take a hand in the forces governing his fate. But as the culmination of her revenge draws near, Gilly finds her own life at risk when she confrontsthe troubling legacy of a long-concealed heritage. "The Third Witch is a brilliantly imagined, wonderfully satisfying novel. In a riveting story of ruthlessness and revenge, debut author Rebecca Reisert demonstrates a profound understanding of the Bard's timeless drama -- and of the real-life Macbeth upon whom Shakespeare's incarnation is modeled.

The Secret Trial of Robert E. Lee

Product : The Secret Trial of Robert E. Lee
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : 1865. The Civil War is over and the South lies in ruins. But for some, the former slaveholders have not been punished enough. A cabal of powerful men, led by Charles A. Dana, the Assistant Secretary of War, plot to break the spirit of the South once and for all--by convicting General Robert E. Lee of treason and hanging him like a common criminal. To this end, they have convened a secret military tribunal in Lee's former home in Arlington, Virginia. Jeremiah O'Brien of "The New York Tribune," a long-time protege of Dana's, is the only reporter allowed to attend the trial. His exclusive reports on this momentous event, and the book he intends to write, will surely make his fortune. Yet as the trial proceeds, pitting the general against his accusers, O'Brien finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dana, his love for a beautiful Confederate spy, and his growing respect and compassion for Lee himself. The young reporter is supposed to be only an observer, but, in the end, it is O'Brien who must evaluate the evidence . . . and determine the true meaning of honor. Written by acclaimed author and historian Thomas Fleming, "The Secret Trial of Robert E. Lee" brings to life a fascinating chapter in American history that might well have happened--and perhaps truly did.

Unarmed and Dangerous: New and Selected Poems

Product : Unarmed and Dangerous: New and Selected Poems
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Wyatt Prunty's poems have been described as "quiet, reflective, and of unexpected depth" (Howard Nemerov), "both artful and truthful" (Donald Justice), "a triumph of controlled and understated but powerful emotion" (Anthony Hecht), and "illuminated by a language both skewed and precise" (Walker Percy). As a poet, Prunty -- who is also the founder and director of the Sewanee Writers' Conference -- has been praised for "his powerful imagination in the specifics of ordinary details, suggesting persuasively that the near at hand is as unexplored and full of wonder as the far ends of the universe" (Publishers Weekly) and called "one of the most gifted and technically accomplished American poets of the post-World War II generation" (Southern Review). An elegant overview of his career until now, Unarmed and DANGEROUS: New and Selected Poems features selections from Wyatt Prunty's five previous books -- The Times Between (1982); What Women Know, What Men Believe (1986); Balance as Belief (1989); Run of the House (1993); and Since the Noon Mail Stopped (1997), all published by the Johns Hopkins University Press -- as well as new poems that demonstrate the poet's wide-ranging and sympathetic imagination. Prunty's new work includes moving evocations of childhood ("A Child's Christmas in Georgia, 1953"), richly detailed poems about ordinary people and situations ("The Downtown Bus"), and even a probing meditation on the fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk" ("Annals of Jack"). Together, the poems gathered in this volume afford a clear portrait of a major American poet whose distinctive voice and vision have earned him the admiration and respect of such contemporaries as Richard Wilbur, X. J. Kennedy, and Mark Strand and marked him as "a writer who has mastered his craft, a] poet who] can look at the life most of us take for granted and show us what is most real, most precious in it" (The Commercial Appeal).

For the Love of Animals: The Rise of the Animal Protection Movement

Product : For the Love of Animals: The Rise of the Animal Protection Movement
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The engaging story of how an unlikely group of extraordinary people laid the foundation for the legal protection of animals In eighteenth-century England--where cockfighting and bullbaiting drew large crowds, and the abuse of animals was routine--the idea of animal protection was dismissed as laughably radical. But as pets became more common, human attitudes toward animals evolved steadily. An unconventional duchess defended their intellect in her writings. A gentleman scientist believed that animals should be treated with compassion. And with the concentrated efforts of an eccentric Scots barrister and a flamboyant Irishman, the lives of beasts--and, correspondingly, men and women--began to change. Kathryn Shevelow, a respected eighteenth-century scholar, gives us the dramatic story of the bold reformers who braved attacks because they sympathized with the plight of creatures everywhere. More than just a history, this is an eye-opening exploration into how our feelings toward animals reveal our ideas about ourselves, God, mercy, and nature. Accessible and lively, "For the Love of Animals" is a captivating cultural narrative that takes us into the lives of animals--and into the minds of humans--during some of history's most fascinating times.

Description : "New Britain" presents Tony Blair on all the major debates of British public life: from nationalized health care to crime prevention, from the welfare state to monetary policy, from religion to family values, from individualism to isolationism, from taxation to trade unions, from NATO to Northern Ireland, from community rebirth to economic growth. After seventeen years of Conservative Party rule under Margaret Thatcher and John Major, a change in Great Britain's leadership appears imminent. In Blair's Stakeholder Nation, government works in partnership with private and voluntary sectors to harness the power of the market to serve the public interest. In "New Britain," we read in Blair's own articulate words how to improve the standard of living of all Britain's families; how to base a new social order on merit, commitment, and inclusion; how to decentralize British institutions of political power; and how to expand Britain's leadership in foreign affairs.

Alexander had come riding into Leargan to claim the three children born of a forbidden love between his brother and lovely Ailis' sister. Now, with Ailis herself as his pawn, he can strike at the enemy whose treachery robbed his clan of so much.

Prayers from Franciscan Hearts: Contemporary Reflections from Women and Men

Product : Prayers from Franciscan Hearts: Contemporary Reflections from Women and Men
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Some of the writings here aspire to art, some are simply the spontaneous outpourings of the heart confronted with the lives and places of Francis and Clare of Assisi. Some are prayers, others meditations, but all attest to the power of the Franciscan charism to change lives, to inspire and to elicit words of gratitude and joy that the pilgrim soul feels impelled to preserve in the written word.--From the Foreword by Murray Bodo, O.F.M. Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi were people of prayer who found spiritual inspiration in a variety of places and forms. To help modern-day followers of these two beloved saints who seek similar inspiration, Secular Franciscan Paula Pearce has collected prayers and reflections from Franciscans in several countries and compiled their diverse contributions in "Prayers From Franciscan Hearts: Contemporary Reflections From Women and Men." Pearce organized the contributions around pilgrimage stations dear to Franciscans and that mark significant stages on the saints' journeys back to God, such as San Rufino, the Porziuncola and La Verna. Each of fourteen pilgrimage stations opens with an introduction, giving information about the place and its context within the saints' distinctive journeys. Prayerful and reflective contributions from Franciscans around the globe, relevant to the theme of the station, follow. Each station closes with simple suggestions for further reflection and pertinent Scripture references. As Franciscans celebrate the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Franciscan order, "Prayers From Franciscan Hearts" will be a valuable and welcome addition to anyone's trove of prayer resources.

Columbia River: Gateway to the West

Product : Columbia River: Gateway to the West
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Carlos Schwantes takes the reader on a voyage of discovery along the Great River of the West -- the Columbia. Through his personal text and photographs, along with additional color photographs by Steve Eltinge and Ralph Lee Hopkins, Schwantes tells a story expressing the essence of the Columbia River and its personality and living characteristics as a river at once beautiful, changeable, and wildly dangerous. The Columbia River begins its journey to the Pacific Ocean in the melting snow of the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. Mixing with tributary streams and rivers, the Columbia drains an area spanning 250,000 square miles from distant origins as far removed as Revelstoke, British Columbia; Kelso, Washington; and Jackson, Wyoming. Upon reaching the Pacific, the Great River of the West is four miles wide and hundreds of feet deep. Schwantes describes the history of the Columbia from its first, yet unreported, discovery by Spanish explorer Bruno de Heceta to the present with its mighty dams and important seaports as far inland as Lewiston, Idaho. Readers will enjoy the various eras of the river discussed -- its discovery by the western world, how it assisted immigrants, carried steamboat vacationers, ferried goods to settlers and harvests to the rest of the world, and the modern damming of its powerful currents for electricity and irrigation. Explorers, fur traders, miners, immigrants, engineers, fishers, and tourists colorfully tell the story of a river that at times seems larger than life. Published in conjunction with the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon, Columbia River: Gateway to the West makes a significant contribution to the history of a river.

48 Hours of Kristallnacht: Night of Destruction/Dawn of the Holocaust: An Oral History

Product : 48 Hours of Kristallnacht: Night of Destruction/Dawn of the Holocaust: An Oral History
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On the nights of November 9 and 10, 1938, rampaging mobs throughout Germany and the newly acquired territories of Austria and Sudetenland freely attacked Jews in the street, in their homes and at their places of work and worship. At least 96 Jews were killed and hundreds more injured, as many as 2,000 synagogues were burned, almost 7,500 Jewish businesses were destroyed, cemeteries and schools were vandalized, and 30,000 Jews were arrested and sent to concentration camps. This pogrom has come to be called "Kristallnacht," "the Night of Broken Glass." Although numerous anti-Jewish regulations had been adopted prior to Kristallnacht, these measures had only imposed restrictions on German Jews' economic activity and occupational opportunities. Prior to Kristallnacht, the Jews had little reason to believe their physical safety was at risk. That all changed 70 years ago this coming November. The events of that night were the beginning of the Holocaust. It is fitting that a book record the events of this seminal historical event on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht. This book provides an account of the incidents immediately preceding the attacks on November 9-10, an oral history that provides a minute-by-minute and hour-by-hour account of what happened during the pogroms, and an analysis of the immediate aftermath and why the Holocaust can be dated from this evening.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The fourth in Ted Dillard's "Pipeline" series--cutting-edge books that detail digital imaging in the Adobe Photoshop darkroom--explores the most popular, time-honored photographic form of expression: the black-and-white photograph. Dillard examines Ansel Adams's legendary Zone System as the foundation of black-and-white photography, and applies these tried-and-true fundamentals to the powerful imaging tools available in Adobe Camera RAW. He explains how to translate traditional darkroom techniques into the digital medium, and how the newest generation of digital tools offers more control, increased power, and greater potential for expressing artistic vision. Above all, Dillard creates an intuitive and streamlined workflow that gets the photographer from capture to print while creating the highest-quality digital image. This provides the framework beginning digital photographers need to create the kind of black-and-white photos they envision. "Black + White Pipeline" is a comprehensive resource for the photographic artist who wants to combine the beauty of traditional black-and-white with today's most influential digital equipment.

My Sister's Keeper: A Gillian Adams Mystery

Product : My Sister's Keeper: A Gillian Adams Mystery
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Gillian Adams first appeared in In the Shadow of King's, a novel that garnered reviews like "Almost unbelievably, the university-bound detective story with all the wit and panache of Innes, Crispin, and Amanda Cross in their heyday, is Kelly's first novel" Toronto Globe and Mail]. Now the Vancouver author returns Gillian to her faculty post as head of the History Department at the University of the Pacific Northwest where sexism has reared its ugly head in attacks on the Feminist ("Eff Yours") Union. Though separated from her lover Edward, a Scotland Yard man, Gillian hasn't lost her sleuthing skills. While others see the nasty acts as student pranks, she finds a larger pattern of discrimination developing which leads to a prize-student--and radical feminist--losing a valuable fellowship she was expected to win. But worse is to come: Rita is murdered. Gillian's dilemma becomes whether to look for a personal, or a professional, motive.... Adroitly plotted, filled with intrigue and intriguing characters, My Sister's Keeper solves the crimes but leaves the mystery of Gillian, poised between her career in Vancouver and her romance in England, not to mention worry about her mother in upstate New York, open. We publish Bad Chemistry in August, Gillian's third case. Her fourth, Old Wounds, won the 1999 Arthur Ellis Best Novel Award and has elicited rave reviews upon our December 1999 release.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : IT IS TIME TO LISTEN TO THOSE WHO CARRY THE STORIES THAT SPEAK TO OUR SOULS: There is a deep longing for the universal, for meaning, and for spirit in these times of brilliant discoveries and breathtakingly rapid technological advances. Life has become longer, more complex, and - in many challenging new ways - more demanding. The gifts have been incredible, but the human spirit needs to catch up. In the spring of 2009, Hal & Sidra Stone met with a group of colleagues in a house overlooking the Pacific and, as they sat before the fire, they shared their stories in an intimate series of conversations. They talked about life and death; the challenges and rewards of aging; relationship and psycho-spiritual growth; illness and health; the gift of dreams; and the ever-present golden thread of meaning in the evolution of personal and global consciousness. Dianne Braden, a Jungian analyst, crafted a beautiful book based on these four mornings, masterfully re-creating this very special moment in time.

Product : City Dog: Essays
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When a self-proclaimed "lazy scholar" embarks on a trip through his life's influences--as diverse as girl-group doo-wop, Yeats, and Van Gogh--readers are in for an illuminating ride. This collection of essays from cultural critic Di Piero veers from his early years as the son of immigrants in Philadelphia to his working life in art, film, music, and poetry. Along with a few choice essays reprinted from out-of-print collections, Di Piero's new work shows him to be insightful about himself and his work despite his protestations against the "boosterism" of autobiography. Through the lens of his sharp artistic analysis, readers see his story--an immigrant story filled with the music and mystery of a multilingual family, the men of his neighborhood wearing so many hats as they worked--as the auspicious beginning for his life of observation and revelation. His prose sings along, tripping across slang, poetry, and painters with the same precision that allows him to nearly dance about architecture. Though Di Piero would claim that his life's path "lurches and swerves," his essays prove that he has wandered expansively and with purpose--a city dog trotting across continents, along pages, and through galleries.

Description : Travel a mountain road to a village for a medical clinic, trek along the Indus to visit a former patient, visit a Princess to do a pre-natal check, or watch as very sick patients are brought in to the hospital by local "ambulance," a roped frame bed carried on the shoulders of four men.

She was also a wife and a mother of three active youngsters. The reader gets a glimpse of how she managed these roles as she tells how she and her husband made time for family life with a simple picnic or playing games, and by including the children in the ministry when possible. Whether treating a poor villager or the wealthy elite, the desire was not only to heal physically, but also to treat spiritual needs by demonstrating the compassion and love of Christ, and whenever feasible, presenting the Gospel of salvation through Jesus.

Silent Weaver: The Extraordinary Life and Work of Angus MacPhee

Product : Silent Weaver: The Extraordinary Life and Work of Angus MacPhee
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In September 1939, groups of horsemen in battledress cantered down a broad, grassy plain on the western edge of Europe. The young men of the Western Isles were going to war again. They included a tall, shy 24-year-old called Angus MacPhee (1916-97). Angus returned from war alive but in chronic mental pain and was referred to the asylum in Inverness, where he spent the next 50 years of his life there. During his time at Craig Dunain Hospital, he retreated into his own silent world, and did not speak again until shortly before his death. But 'the quiet big man' as he was known spent his time creating a huge number of objects out of woven grass, sheep's wool and beach leaves--mostly clothes, caps and hats--which he then let decay or deliberately burned. Only when an art therapist discovered him and his miraculous creations were some of them preserved for posterity. And only then did Angus MacPhee come home to South Uist, where he died a year later.

Description : This Author' s Preferred Edition of Raymond E. Feist' s bestselling coming-of-age saga celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of its publication. Feist introduces a new generation of readers to his riveting novel of adventure and intrigue, revised and updated as he always meant it to be written. It is a work that explores strength and weakness, hope and fear, and what it means to be a man-- in a kingdom where peace is the most precious commodity of all. If there were two more impetuous and carefree men in the Kingdom of the Isles, they had yet to be found. Twins Borric and Erland wore that mantle proudly, much to the chagrin of their father, Prince Arutha of Krondor. But their blissful youth has come to an end. Their uncle, the King, has produced no male children. Bypassing himself, Arutha names Borric, the eldest twin by seconds, the Royal Heir. As his brother, Erland will have his own great responsibilities to shoulder. To drive home their future roles, Arutha sends them as ambassadors to Kesh, the most feared nation in the world. Borric and Erland will be presented to the Queen of Kesh-- the single most powerful ruler in the known world-- at her Seventy-fifth Jubilee Anniversary. But they have not even left Krondor when an assassination attempt on Borric is thwarted. Aware that he is being provoked into war, Arutha does not rise to the bait. His sons' journey will not be deterred, for nothing less than peace is riding on it. Yet there is to be no peace for the young princes. When their traveling party is ambushed, Borric disappears and is presumed dead-- sending Erland into spirals of rage and grief as he is forced to navigate alone thecourt intrigues at Kesh. But unbeknownst to anyone, Borric lives and has escaped his captors. In a strange land, with a price on his head, Borric must use all his wits and stamina to find his way back to his brother. On separate paths, the two men-- one a fugitive and one a future king-- make their journey toward maturity, honor, and duty. For every step they take could sway the fragile peace of the land, as those who crave war rally against them-- and become ever more daring.

Description : "'Garniss, lend me your knife for a second, will you, ' I whispered." So begins "Java Man," the inside story of how one discovery--a human skull found on the island of Java--by two geologists shook the foundations of science. By uncovering new evidence about the hominid known as Java man, Carl C. Swisher and Garniss H. Curtis were able to date his fossil remains at 1.7 million years, an age that stunned the scientific community because it pushed back the time when humans migrating out of Africa first reached Eurasia by nearly one million years. Cowritten by the popular science writer Roger Lewin, this is a gripping and informative account of the discovery that breathed new life into the human origins debate.

Chaucer and the Fictions of Gender

Product : Chaucer and the Fictions of Gender
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Hansen challenges both the long-standing myth of Chaucer as the tolerant, wise Father of English poetry and the recent arguments that Chaucer was a protofeminist, subversive of the misogyny of his day. Hansen argues that these mistaken interpretations inhibit readings of Chaucer that respond to feminist and other poststructuralist critiques of traditional literary scholarship. Hansen suggests that the woman's voice in Chaucer reflects an urgent problem of gender identity for two kinds of men, both feminized by fourteenth-century courtly conventions: those who love women, and those who traffic in stories about women. She maintains that Chaucer destabilizes the notion of fixed gender difference but then privileges masculine identity by reconstructing the feminine in orthodox ways. Hansen exhorts readers of Chaucer, and students of the history of gender, to approach Chaucer's fictions with a more sophisticated awareness of their complexity and timeliness.

Women's Rights and the Bible: Implications for Christian Ethics and Social Policy

Product : Women's Rights and the Bible: Implications for Christian Ethics and Social Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Synopsis: In this volume, Richard Hiers challenges the popular assumption that the Bible has a low view of women and that biblical law either ignores women or requires them to be subject and subservient to men. He does so by identifying and carefully examining hundreds of biblical texts and allowing them to speak for themselves. Among the findings: --that biblical tradition generally represents women positively, as strong and independent persons; --that no text represents wives as subject to their husbands and that no biblical law requires such subjection; --that biblical laws provide many protections for women's rights and interests--in several instances, rights equal to those enjoyed by men. The book focuses particularly on the Old Testament and Old Testament law, and argues that Old Testament laws and their underlying values provide important resources for Christian ethics and social policy today. Endorsements: "Richard Heirs has offered us a persuasive account of the view of women in the Bible, with special attention to the Old Testament. He focuses on the Old Testament because . . . the Christian community . . . has addressed this issue almost exclusively from a New Testament perspective. He argues that the overarching perspective of the biblical law is that women should be treated equally and fairly. His work is well researched, balanced, and integrative. This volume is timely, given the current discussion of women's rights." --Duncan Ferguson Retired Professor of Religious Studies, Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, Florida author, Exploring the Spirituality of the World Religions(2010) "Using a comprehensive catalogue of biblical evidence . . ., Richard Hiers successfully demonstrates that women's role in Old Testament times was more powerful, and their legal rights more secure, than the common wisdom would suggest. Modern advocates for women's rights worldwide should find this text helpful in setting straight the historical record on legal protections for women." --Marie Failinger Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Law and Religion Professor of Law, Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota "Once again, Richard Hiers . . . demonstrates the persisting pertinence of biblical writings--specifically the Old Testament--to our times. Drawing on specializations in both biblical studies and American law, he focuses on the precise status of women in these ancient texts. Granting exceptions, he finds the vast preponderance of the evidence portrays women as equal to men in cultural significance and legal standing. His sharp conclusion: we have yet in the modern age to meet that high standard." --Douglas Sturm Presidential Professor Emeritus of Religion and Political Science, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania Former President, Society of Christian Ethics Author Biography: Richard Hiers is Professor of Religion, emeritus, and Affiliate Professor of Law, emeritus, at the University of Florida.

Ice Blue

Product : Ice Blue
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Museum curator Summer Hawthorne considered the exquisite ice-blue ceramic bowl given to her by her beloved Japanese nanny a treasure of sentimental value-- until somebody tried to kill her for it. The priceless relic is about to ignite a global power struggle that must be stopped at all costs. It's a desperate situation, and international operative Takashi O'Brien has received his directive: everybody is expendable. "Everybody." Especially the woman who is getting dangerously under his skin as the lethal game crosses the Pacific to the remote and beautiful mountains of Japan, where the truth can be as seductive as it is deadly... .

Harnessing Farms and Forests in the Low-Carbon Economy: How to Create, Measure, and Verify Greenhouse Gas Offsets

Product : Harnessing Farms and Forests in the Low-Carbon Economy: How to Create, Measure, and Verify Greenhouse Gas Offsets
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As the United States moves to a low-carbon economy in order to combat global warming, credits for reducing carbon dioxide emissions will increasingly become a commodity that is bought and sold on the open market. Farmers and other landowners can benefit from this new economy by conducting land management practices that help sequester carbon dioxide, creating credits they can sell to industry to "offset" industrial emissions of greenhouse gases. This guide is the first comprehensive technical publication providing direction to landowners for sequestering carbon and information for traders and others who will need to verify the sequestration. It will provide invaluable direction to farmers, foresters, land managers, consultants, brokers, investors, regulators, and others interested in creating consistent, credible greenhouse gas offsets as a tradable commodity in the United States. The guide contains a non-technical section detailing methodologies for scoping of the costs and benefits of a proposed project, quantifying offsets of various sorts under a range of situations and conditions, and verifying and registering the offsets. The technical section provides specific information for quantifying, verifying, and regulating offsets from agricultural and forestry practices. Visit the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions website for audio from the press conference announcing the book. Read the press release announcing the book.
