Placing Latin America: Contemporary Themes in Human Geography

Product : Placing Latin America: Contemporary Themes in Human Geography
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An innovative text for students, Placing Latin America takes a thematic approach to the study of the diverse human geographies of Latin America. Avoiding pre-defined ideas about this rapidly globalizing region, this volume focuses on the dynamic connections between people and places. Fifteen chapters written by a diverse group of contributors provide a well-rounded and accessible introduction to many dimensions of human geography, including discussions of migration in the context of transnationalism and globalization; the relations between urbanization, employment change, and the material and environmental landscapes of cities; and the connections between economic development and political change at different scales. Particularly exciting are the chapters on themes not typically found in other textbooks on the region, such as geographic analysis of the drug trade, tourism landscapes, and Latin American cinema. Jackiewicz and Bosco also include chapters on current problems of border and migration between the United States, Mexico, and the rest of Latin America. The book is well organized for the classroom-each theme chapter is illustrated by specific examples from different places in the region and includes suggested reading resources. Students and general readers alike will enjoy and learn from the connections that are drawn between different themes and contemporary concepts and important theories in critical human geography such as scale, place, and spatiality.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Modesitt returns to the twenty-fourth century future of "Archform: Beauty," for a new story. Ten years ago, Jonat deVrai was a rising star in the Marines. But he shocked his superiors by walking away from the Corps after witnessing atrocity and hypocrisy. Starting his life over, he established himself as the world's expert on the effectiveness of "prod"-- product placement, the only advertising which viewers will allow through the sophisticated filters they all use against unwanted intrusions on their electronic link networks. Prod, reinforced with sublims and the "res"-- resonant frequencies, a form of sonic branding -- is the wave of the future. Then Jonat's comfortable world is upset when the Centre for Societal Research approaches him to study the effects of res and prod on political campaigns. After a res-heavy political rally for Laborite Republican Senatorial candidate Juan Carlismo, armed thugs jump deVrai in a parking garage. A day later, a sniper ambushes him. What looked like a safe, lucrative contract has suddenly turned dangerous. With his life on the line, deVrai must sort flash from fact before it's too late. "Flash "is a riveting blend of all-out thriller and thoughtful social, political, and technological exploration as only Modesitt could write it.

The Figure in the Landscape: Poetry, Painting, and Gardening During the Eighteenth Century

Product : The Figure in the Landscape: Poetry, Painting, and Gardening During the Eighteenth Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Eighteenth-century England saw the rise of a "peculiarly English" art form -- landscape gardening -- and a corresponding change in attitudes toward the natural world. While the French, who lived under tyranny, had tightly organized, restrictive gardens, the "free" English enjoyed gardens where they were at liberty to wander. John Dixon Hunt examines eighteenth-century letters, literary and critical works, biographies, paintings, prints, and drawings to trace the gradual movement from formal regularity toward a carefully calculated naturalness.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In 1798, a poorly trained army of 100,000 Irish men and women rose up against British rule. Thirty thousand people -- peasants, defenseless women, and children -- were killed. The uneasy alliance of Irish Catholics and Presbyterians, forged against a common Anglican enemy, crumbled into civil war, and the legacy of violence has persisted to the present day. Twenty years after its original publication, renowned historian Thomas Pakenham provides a newly abridged version of his definitive work, illustrated with full-color period paintings. This special bicentennial edition is a riveting account of one of the most tragic episodes in Irish history.

Tillie Olsen: One Woman, Many Riddles

Product : Tillie Olsen: One Woman, Many Riddles
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Tillie Olsen: One Woman, Many Riddles, Panthea Reid examines the complex life of this iconic feminist hero and twentieth-century literary giant. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Tillie Olsen spent her young adulthood there, in Kansas City, and in Faribault, Minnesota. She relocated to California in 1933 and lived most of her life in San Francisco. From 1962 on, she sojourned frequently in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Santa Cruz, and Soquel, California. She was a 1920s ahell-cata; a 1930s revolutionary; an early 1940s crusader for equal pay for equal work and a war-relief patriot; an ex-GIas ideal wife in the later 1940s; a victim of FBI surveillance in the 1950s;a civil rights and antiwar advocate during the 1960s and 1970s; and a life-long orator for universal human rights. The enigma of Tillie Olsen is intertwined with that of the twentieth century. From the rebellions in Czarist Russia, through the terrors of the Depression and the hopes of the New Deal, to World War II, the Nuremberg Trials, and the United Nationsa founding, to the cold war and House Un-American Activities Committee hearings, to later progressive and repressive movements, the story of Olsenas life brings remote events into focus. In her classic short story aI Stand Here Ironinga and her groundbreaking "Tell Me a Riddle, Yonnondido, and Silences, " Olsen scripted powerful, moving prose about ordinary peopleas lives, exposing the pervasive effects of sexism, racism, and classism and elevating motherhood and womenas creativity into topics of study. Popularly referred to as aSaint Tillie, a Olsen was hailed by many as the mother of modern feminism. Based on diaries, letters, manuscripts, private documents, resurrected public records, and countless interviews, Reidas artfully crafted biography untangles some of the puzzling knots of the last centuryas triumphs and failures and speaks truth to legend, correcting fabrications and myths about and also by "Tillie Olsen."

Macbeth

Product : Macbeth
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Hundreds of bold-color illustrations keep pace with Shakespeare's dialogue in "The Illustrated Macbeth," an unexpurgated but easy-to-understand, panel-by-panel look at the classic tragedy of ambition and death. Like the Elizabethan groundlings who stood just inches from the stage at the old globe theatre, readers observe characters and scenes close at hand, immediately making vital, visual connections between actors and actions. For this new popular format, no one word of text has been edited from the Folio Edition. The European artist Von has worked almost two years painting figures of heroic stance to depict the bloodchilling encounters and haunting soliloquies: Macbeth's prophetic meeting with the Three Sisters, the dark night of Duncan's murder, Lady Macbeth's guilty madness, the moments before the fatal duel with Macduff.

Wedding Season

Product : Wedding Season
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Seventeen weddings. Six months. Only the strong survive. Joy Silverman and her boyfriend, Gabriel Winslow, seem perfect for each other. Living together in New York City, they have everything they want and everything in common--most important, that neither one wants to get married. Ever. But when Joy finds herself obligated to attend seventeen weddings in six months (including those of her father, mother, younger brother, and five of her closest girlfriends), the couple is forced to take a new look at why they're so opposed to marriage when the rest of the world can't wait to walk down the aisle. As the season heats up and the pressure mounts, Joy must confront what it means -- and what it costs -- to be true to one's self. A witty, wicked comedy of manners in the satirical tradition of Jane Austen and Evelyn Waugh, "Wedding Season" is an intelligent, laugh-out-loud funny examination of friendship, faith, integrity, and the ideas and institutions that bind us together, shape our lives, and define who we are. "If Jane Austen and Candace Bushnell were to meet for a long drink in a downtown bar, the delightful result might be a contemporary comedy of manners with a decidedly old-fashioned feel. Darcy Cosper has given us just that: a sweet and sharply funny concoction that will have bridesmaids everywhere nodding their heads in recognition." -- Dani Shapiro, author of "Family History" "Wonderful...."Wedding Season" is social comedy on a grand scale. A hilarious and urbane primer on getting hitched-or not-in the twenty-first century." -- Gary Shteyngart, author of "The Russian Debutante's Handbook"

Target North Korea: Pushing North Korea to the Brink of Nuclear Catastrophe

Product : Target North Korea: Pushing North Korea to the Brink of Nuclear Catastrophe
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : North Korea seems impenetrable to outsiders, a bizarre, Stalinist sideshow and relic guerrilla state that defies explanation. For Washington, North Korea is a fully paid-up member of George Bush's "axis of evil," involved in a dangerous game of nuclear brinksmanship since last October. In this timely book, McCormack shows how decisive the founding myths and national identity forged through Korea's armed resistance to a brutal Japanese colonialism are, and how hardened North Korea has become over half a century of Cold War. He shows that at the heart of the Korean crisis is the role of Japan where the North Korean admission of having abducted Japanese citizens has created something of a right-wing, nationalist backlash in a country that itself once abducted thousands of Koreans and almost sixty years later has yet to fully apologize for its acts. A foreign policy satellite of the United States, Japan is now showing signs of becoming more militarily independent, wanting to reassert its old role as a regional hegemon. Permeated by so many ills, North Korea -paranoid, insecure, and ravaged by famine-is in a vice with few cards in its pack. The nuclear one has been its joker for at least a decade.

Description : A powerful and truly haunting debut novel from Bianca Zander with a spine-tingling hint of the gothic and supernatural, The Girl Below enthralls with a strange magic akin to the works of Audrey Niffenegger, Haruki Murakami, and Sarah Waters. Zander's novel is a story of parents and children; of love, regret, and second chances. When a young English woman, recently returned to London after a ten-year absence, finds herself slipping back into her childhood, she must solve the mysteries of her dysfunctional family--and unearths disturbing secrets that could shatter everything she believes about who she is and her place in the world.

I Was There for Your Somniloquy

Product : I Was There for Your Somniloquy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Poetry. Hypnagogia is the transitional stage between sleep and wakefulness--an intermediary moment of physiological limbo where hallucinations and out-of-body experiences commonly occur. Kelli Anne Noftle's poems reside in this space of "threshold consciousness" where a voice speaks to and from the other, hovering inside a liminal world of strange admissions and abstract silences. Rae Armantrout, who selected I WAS THERE FOR YOUR SOMNILOQUY for the Omnidawn Poetr Prize, describes the collection as a "destabilizing meditation on our divided selves: our split brains and checkered evolutionary pasts." A somniloquy, a speech one makes in one's sleep, weaves itself through the language, continually disorienting the reader and subverting subject matter, insisting there is a very precarious boundary between the conscious and unconscious, logical and illogical, dream and waking life. Other poems in this book dip below an oceanic unconscious, describing mating habits, taxonomy, and defense mechanisms of deep sea Nudibranchs (sea slugs). Noftle suggests not merely the analogousness between this species and ourselves, but creates an emotional expansiveness, exploring mysteries within and beyond the self.

Mark Thomas Presents: The People's Manifesto

Product : Mark Thomas Presents: The People's Manifesto
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Mark Thomas has been touring the UK for months, getting audiences to come up with policies aimed at sorting out the country's political chaos and taking back the power for the people. Sick to death of bailing out bankers and subsidizing MPs homes, the audience vote on the best policy of the night to be included in the brand new People's Manifesto. From the inspiring to the downright hilarious, you'll wonder why these fantastic ideas aren't part of their constitution already. For example: all politicians will be forced to wear the names and logos of the companies sponsoring them or with whom they have financial links; anyone who supports ID cards is banned from having curtains; all models have to be picked at random from the electoral register; anyone found guilty of homophobic hate crime has to serve their sentence in drag; and, CEOs convicted of fraud will be made to dress as pirates in whatever job they get in the future. "The People's Manifesto" will outline 50 policies of the manifesto shouted out in bold type on a page to themselves with Mark's commentary opposite. Mark has even "road tested" some of them--like hosting a party in an MP's second home (which clearly belongs to the taxpayer) and getting university boffins to work out a way of SAT testing MPs to rank them by value. And Mark's guerrilla antics won't end there...Power to the people is really happening.

The flashes of awareness, the glimpses of recognition, the seemingly dream-like memories that can come to even the least sensitive of people all underline the fact that we have been here before. The theory of reincarnationis as old as time, and our links with the past are now being unraveled through psychology and hypnosis. Dilys Gater has taken over fifty case histories of past life regression from her personal files. From the spontaneous memories of an 8-year-old who could recall his death in a blazing airship to the account of past lives as animals, alien life forms, trapped suicides, and human sacrifices -- every page is fascinating and compelling.

Havana and Other Missing Fathers

Product : Havana and Other Missing Fathers
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Mia Leonin spent the first sixteen years of her life believing her father was dead. All she knew of the man came through stories told by her mother. At times he had been a surgeon, at others a psychiatrist. In truth, he had been a fantasy. Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, Leonin learned from her mother that her father, a Cuban exile, was very much alive and living in Florida. Her attempts to contact him, however, were thwarted until four years later, when she left home in search of her roots. She meets her father, but trying to discover the truth behind him proves to be a more daunting task. Her journey takes her to Miami, Colombia, and Cuba, and her search for cultural identity leads her to create memories, friendships, and romances. She finds moments of connection and redemption, ending up in Havana not as a cultural tourist but as an illegitimate daughter of Cuba looking for validation. What she discovers is an island bereft of fathers and brimming with paternalism. As she becomes entangled with two different men, she descends further into the Havana of poverty, humiliation, and despair, as well as the ever-inventive city that is as passionate as it is contradictory. Insightful, imaginative, and often poetic, Havana and Other Missing Fathers is Mia Leoninas recollection of this journey and her longing to learn more about her origins. In the end, she must learn to accept the answers she discovers as well as the questions that remain.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : During the history of aviation there have been very few aircraft that have achieved immediate success when entering front-line service. The de Havilland Mosquito was one such aircraft. It was not designed to an RAF requirement, but was the result of an initiative of the designers and builders to utilise the skills of woodworkers and the relative abundance of wood in the crisis years of World War II. The result was an aeroplane that could be built quickly, was extremely fast and extremely versatile. The pilots loved it. This book describes how it was built and utilizes many hitherto unpublished photographs from the design studio and production lines. It illustrates and explains the many different roles that the aircraft took as the war progressed. Fighter, bomber, reconnaissance, night fighter - there were few tasks that this brilliant design could not adopt.
