A beautiful, stunningly ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II

Marie-Laure has been blind since the age of six. Her father builds a perfect miniature of their Paris neighbourhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. But when the Nazis invade, father and daughter flee with a dangerous secret.

Werner is a German orphan, destined to labour in the same mine that claimed his father’s life, until he discovers a knack for engineering. His talent wins him a place at a brutal military academy, but his way out of obscurity is built on suffering.

At the same time, far away in a walled city by the sea, an old man discovers new worlds without ever setting foot outside his home. But all around him, impending danger closes in.

Doerr’s combination of soaring imagination and meticulous observation is electric. As Europe is engulfed by war and lives collide unpredictably, ‘All The Light We Cannot See’ is a captivating and devastating elegy for innocence.

True Devotion to Mary: A Consecration to Jesus Through the Blessed Mother

Saint Louis de Montfort was a French priest whose devotion to Mary made him one of the earliest writers on the subject of Mariology. A gifted speaker, Saint Louis quickly gained fame throughout France for his fervent sermons and teachings. After being declined permission to be sent as a missionary to Canada, Saint Louis founded the Company of Mary (the Montfort Fathers) and the Daughters of Wisdom, with Blessed Marie Louise Trichet. In this beautifully illustrated edition, the original 1863 English translation of Saint Louis’s most popular and influential work, True Devotion to Mary—considered one of the greatest works about our Holy Mother—is reproduced to guide readers to consecrate themselves to Jesus through Our Holy Mother, giving tremendous spiritual and transformative effects. This historical devotion has inspired and been practiced by eight popes, most recently by Saint John Paul II, who frequently wrote and spoke about his special affinity to Mary and the inspiration given to him by Saint Louis’s treatise.

Filled with startling twists, Whiteout is the ultimate knife-edge drama from Ken Follett - an international bestselling author who is in a class of his own.

As a blizzard whips down from the north on Christmas Eve, several people converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, director of a pharmaceutical research company, has everything riding on a drug he is developing to fight a lethal virus. Several others are interested in his success too: his children, at home for Christmas with their offspring, have their eyes on the money he will make; Toni Gallo, head of his security team and recently forced to resign from the police, is betting her career on keeping it safe; an ambitious local television reporter sniffs a story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it; and a violent trio of thugs are on their way to steal it, with a client already waiting.

As the storm worsens and the group is held under siege by the elements, the emotional sparks crackle and dark secrets are revealed that threaten to drive Stanley and his family apart for ever.

    Macbeth (Simply Shakespeare)

    This tragedy tells of a power-hungry Scottish nobleman and his lady, and the price they pay for violently seizing the royal throne. Books in this new, illustrated series present complete texts of Shakespeare's plays. However, the lines are set up so students can see the bard's original poetic phrases printed side-by-side and line-by-line with a modern -translation- on the facing page. Starting in the late 1580s and for several decades that followed, Shakespeare's plays were popular entertainment for London's theatergoers. His Globe Theatre was the equivalent of a Broadway theater in today's New York. The plays have endured, but over the course of 400+ years, the English language has changed in many ways--which is why today's students often find Shakespeare's idiom difficult to comprehend. Simply Shakespeare offers an excellent solution to their problem. Introducing each play is a general essay covering Shakespeare's life and times. At the beginning of each of the five acts in every play, a two-page spread describes what is about to take place. The story's background is explained, followed by brief descriptions of key people who will appear in the act, details students should watch for as the story unfolds, discussion of the play's historical context, how the play was staged in Shakespeare's day, and explanation of puns and plays on words that occur in characters' dialogues. Identifying icons preceding each of these study points are printed in a second color, then are located again as cross-references in the play's original text. For instance, where words spoken by a person in the play offer insights into his or another character's personality, the -Characters- icon will appear as a cross-reference in both the introductory spread and the play proper. Following each act, a closing spread presents questions and discussion points for use as teachers' aids. Guided by the inspiring format of this fine new series, both teachers and students will come to understand and appreciate the genius of Shakespeare as never before.

    Adolescents at Risk: Substance Abuse Among Miami's Adolescents in the 1990's

    Given the resurgence of substance abuse in the 1990's among adolescents, this research is of critical importance, presenting a timely analysis of substance abuse among Miami adolescents. The book is multidisciplinary, drawing from the research on substance abuse in such fields as psychology, sociology, criminal justice, political science, and economics. Additionally, it derives a comprehensive 'risk factor' approach in addressing the underlying issue of why it is that certain adolescents seem to be more prone to substance abuse. The scope of the study is also important, starting with such common substances as cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana and moving on to some of the relative newcomers such as crack and steroids. Other substances analyzed are inhalants, LSD, cocaine, heroin, and narcotics. The research presented here is also conceived as a broader policy analytic piece, with specific suggestions for the schools, parents, and communities facing the overwhelming plague of substance abuse.

    Harper Roland has abandoned his job as a war correspondent, and returned home a weary, jaded 37-year-old. Uncertain of the future but determined to move forward with his life, he begins a search for enduring love--hoping he will also regain the ability to see the beauty of the world.

    Along the way, he meets an intellectually gifted but emotionally absent doctor, a beautiful Parisian artist who burns too hot to the touch, and a human rights lawyer who has left New York in search of a more centered life.

    The novel's sweeping tale encompasses four continents--where prior assumptions are constantly tested, and men who cling too passionately to certainty unleash destruction--and ultimately leads Harper back to the chaos he was trying to escape. The result is a startlingly fresh view of the contemporary world, in which place and history are mere starting points for the deeper journey into the geography of the human heart.

    Pan's Garden / Incredible Adventures


    Pan's Garden is a thematic collection of stories which, in the words of the author, "illustrates that characteristic belief, present in all my work, that there exists a definite relationship between Human Beings and Nature." From the opening novella, "The Man Whom the Trees Loved"--in which Nature welcomes and absorbs the soul of a man--to the concluding "The Temptations of the Clay"--in which Nature rejects the spirit of the man who tries to profit from it--we are transported into a natural world where the elements hold sway. Mike Ashley, in his introduction, calls Pan's Garden "the definitive volume of Blackwood's short stories. . . because it defines the true nature of Blackwood's writing."


    Incredible Adventures represents what biographer Mike Ashley calls "the

    last outburst of his golden period" and is comprised of three novellas

    and two short stories. Here, nature is a living force, truth is the

    only religion and the past holds sway over the present. At times almost

    surreal in their intensity, these tales exert a strange power over the

    reader, opening our eyes to a larger world around us. From the rugged

    mountains of Eastern Europe in "The Regeneration of Lord Ernie" to the

    vast deserts of Egypt in "A Descent Into Egypt," Blackwood takes us to

    other places--and other worlds.

    "Algernon Blackwood is the great master of visionary horror.

    Quality And Marketing Of Milk And Milk Products In Ethiopia: Assessment of Quality and Marketing of Milk and Milk Products in the Central Highland of Ethiopia

    The presented study was conducted in selected areas of central highlands of Ethiopia to evaluate the hygienic practices being carried out by the small holder dairy farmers of various dairy products including raw milk. The aim of the study was to determine the microbial and chemical properties of milk and asses the marketing situation of milk and milk products. The study was carried out with 173 smallholder dairy farmers, 74, 50 and 49 respondents each from Holetta, Selale and Debre Brhan respectively. The average of total solids, total proteins, fat,carbohydrate and ash percentages of milk were 12.97, 3.52, 4.53, 4.36 and 0.64 respectively. The average total bacteria, coliform and entrobacteria counts of milk samples were 7.6, 3.6 and 3.2 Log CFU/ml respectively; there was no significant difference between the areas. The level of contamination of milk was high and about 88.8% of the pathogens were entrobacteria.The price of whole milk was almost similar in all study areas whereas higher price was observed for butter in Debre Brhan and Ayib in Holetta. Incidence of microbial contamination of milk is a challenge for quality milk production and consumption in the area.

    Wrongful Death

    Duty to the job or personal ambition? Anna Travis must decide where her loyalties lie ...

    Six months ago, London nightclub owner Josh Reynolds was found dead from a single gunshot wound to the head, the gun held in his right hand. His death was quickly determined to be a suicide, the investigation was closed ... a case done and dusted. Until now.

    A young man, awaiting trial for armed robbery has informed his guards that Reynolds was murdered, and that he has information to share with the police. DCS James Langton tasks DCI Anna Travis to review the case. As soon as she wraps up the investigation, Langton tells Anna, she can join him at the FBI Academy in Virginia for training.

    Meanwhile, Senior FBI Agent, Jessie Dewar, crime scene expert, is seconded to Anna's team as part of her research. Dewar's brash manner soon ruffles feathers among the MET, and what should have been a simple case of tying up loose ends becomes a political nightmare as the competence of the original investigation team is questioned.

    Anna's trip to America is approaching, but now that the situation at the MET has become so volatile, can she trust Dewar to finish the job in her absence?

    Mass Effect: Revelation

    Every advanced society in the galaxy relies on the technology of the Protheans, an ancient species that vanished fifty thousand years ago. After discovering a cache of Prothean technology on Mars in 2148, humanity is spreading to the stars, the newest interstellar species struggling to carve out its place in the greater galactic community.

    On the edge of colonized space, ship commander and Alliance war hero David Anderson investigates the remains of a top secret military research station: smoking ruins littered with bodies and unanswered questions. Who attacked this post, and for what purpose? And where is Kahlee Sanders, the young scientist who mysteriously vanished from the base hours before her colleagues were slaughtered? Sanders is the prime suspect, but finding her creates more problems for Anderson than it solves. Partnered with a rogue alien agent he can't trust and pursued by an assassin he can't escape, Anderson battles impossible odds on uncharted worlds to uncover a sinister conspiracy - one he won't live to tell about. Or so the enemy thinks.

    Conversion and Identity in the Viking Age (Medieval Identities: Socio-Cultural Spaces)

    This volume presents a state-of-the-art collection of essays on the socio-cultural aspects of the conversion to Christianity in Viking-Age Scandinavia and the Scandinavian colonies of the North Atlantic. The nine scholars, drawn from the disciplines of history, archaeology, and literary studies, have been brought together to address the overarching topic of how conversion affected peoples' identities - both as individuals, and as members of broader religious, political, and social groups - on either side of the 'divide' between paganism and Christianity. Central to this exploration is the question of how existing and changing identities shaped the progress of conversion as a process of societal, and more specifically cultural, change. Each of the papers in this volume provides examples of the complicated patterns of interaction, influence, and identity-modification that were characteristic of the transition from paganism to Christianity in the Viking world. The authors look for new ways of understanding and describing this gradual intermingling between the two fuzzy-edged religious communities, and they provide a challenging redefinition of the nature of conversion in the Viking Age that will be of interest both to a wide variety of medievalists and to all those who work on conversion in its theoretical and historical aspects.

    Clavis Or Key To The Magic Of Solomon

    The Clavis or Key to the Magic of Solomon is one of several notebooks from the estate of Ebenezer Sibley, transcribed under the direction of Frederic Hockley (1808-1885). Sibley was a prominent physician and an influential author, who complemented his scientific studies with writings on the adeeper truthsa including magic, astrology, alchemy, and hypnotherapy. Both Sibley and Hockley were major inspirations in the occult revival of the past two centuries, influencing A.E. Waite, S.L. Mathers, Aleister Crowley, as well as the Golden Dawn, Rosicrucian, and Masonic movements. This collection reflects Sibleyas teachings on the practical use of celestial influences and harmonies. The Clavis contains clear and systematic instructions for constructing magical tools and pentacles for many practical purposes. It includes eight separate magical texts: The Mysterious Ring, Experiments of the Spirits, Birto, Vassago, Agares, Bealpharos, The Wheel of Wisdom, and the Complete Book of Magic Science. The manuscript reproduced here is the most accurate and complete known, very beautifully and carefully written complete with extraordinary hand-colored seals and colored handwritten text. 282 color pages with a color fold-out and a huge idex.

    Die Unabhangigkeit eines Aufsichtsratsmitglieds stellt eine Voraussetzung fur eine am Interesse der Gesellschaft ausgerichtete Uberwachung des Vorstands dar. Allerdings bergen Interessenkonflikte, deren Ursprung verschiedener Art sein kann, die Gefahr in sich, dass sich das Aufsichtsratsmitglied bei seiner Amtsausubung von unternehmensfremden Zielen leiten lasst. Die Effektivitat der Uberwachungstatigkeit kann infrage gestellt sein, wenn keine hinreichende Distanz zwischen den Kontrolleuren und den zu Kontrollierenden gegeben ist, die Aufsichtsratsmitglieder demnach personlich nicht unabhangig vom Vorstand sind. Aufgrund der Tatsache, dass die Diskussion uber die Unabhangigkeit der Directors traditionell einen Schwerpunkt der US-amerikanischen Corporate Governance-Debatte bildet und dementsprechend weit fortgeschritten ist, lohnt sich in diesem Zusammenhang ein Blick uber den Atlantik.'

    Making a Moral Society: Ethics and the State in Meiji Japan

    This innovative study of ethics in Meiji Japan (1868-1912) explores the intense struggle to define a common morality for the emerging nation-state. In the Social Darwinist atmosphere of the time, the Japanese state sought to quell uprisings and overcome social disruptions so as to produce national unity and defend its sovereignty against Western encroachment. Morality became a crucial means to attain these aims. Moral prescriptions for re-ordering the population came from all segments of society, including Buddhist, Christian, and Confucian apologists; literary figures and artists; advocates of natural rights; anarchists; and women defending nontraditional gender roles. Each envisioned a unity grounded in its own moral perspective. It was in this tumultuous atmosphere that the academic discipline of ethics (rinrigaku) emerged - not as a value-neutral, objective form of inquiry as its practitioners claimed, but a state-sponsored program with its own agenda. After examining the broad moral space of 'civilization', Richard Reitan turns to the dominant moral theories of early Meiji and the underlying epistemology that shaped and authorized them. He considers the fluidity of moral subjectivity (the constantly shifting nature of norms to which we are subject and how we apprehend, resist, or practice them) by juxtaposing rinrigaku texts with moral writings by religious apologists. By the beginning of the 1890s, moral philosophers in Japan were moving away from the empiricism and utilitarianism of the prior decade and beginning to place 'spirit' at the center of ethical inquiry. This shift is explored through the works of two thinkers, Inoue Tetsujiro (1856-1944) and Nakashima Rikizo (1858-1918), the first chair of ethics at Tokyo Imperial University. Finally, Reitan takes a detailed look at the national morality movement (kokumin dotoku) and its close association with the state before concluding with an outline of some conceptual linkages between the Meiji and later periods.

    Richard M Reitan is assistant professor of history at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

    Vernetztes Denken am Beispiel erneuerbarer Energien: mit Beispielen für den Berufsschulunterricht

    Zwei herausragende Ereignisse haben das Thema erneuerbare Energien maß:geblich beeinflusst. Zum ersten das Unglü:ck auf der Bohrplattform Deepwater Horizon im April 2010 und zum zweiten die Nuklearkatastrophe von Fukushima. Daher habe ich mich mit dem Thema Windenergie und Photovoltaik beschä:ftigt, teils aus der persö:nlichen Faszination und teils aus der Notwendigkeit dieses aktuelle Thema Berufsschü:lerInnen nahe zu bringen. Eine konkrete Zielsetzung dieses Werkes ist es folgender Fragestellung nachzugehen: „:Welche Faktoren bestimmen die Verbreitung erneuerbarer Energien“: an Hand der Windkraft. Es wurde dabei der systemische Ansatz mit Wirkungsnetzen nach Frederic Vester gewä:hlt. Zum leichteren Verstä:ndnis wird das Thema Kybernetik ausfü:hrlich behandelt. Der Leitgedanke des „:Vernetzten Denkens“: wird durch die eine oder andere Metapher anschaulich erklä:rt. In einem weiteren Kapitel wird der Frage nachgegangen wie die Technik der Wirkungsnetze im Schulunterricht vermittelt werden kann.

    Final Cut: Rhona Macleod Book 6

    Where the hell had the kid found a human skull? McNab heard an intake of breath behind him as someone else made out the shape in the torchlight. A metre away now, McNab crouched on a level with the child. 'Where did you find that, Emma?' he said softly. She stared at him. 'I was lost. I heard them calling me.'

    When Claire regains consciousness after a stranger causes her car to crash in a snowstorm, she is frantic to discover her nine-year-old daughter Emma missing from the back seat. Then Emma is found in the woods nearby, unharmed but cradling a child's skull. She claims it 'called to her' - and she can hear another voice nearby...

    Meanwhile, forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod is trying to discover the identity of a corpse found badly burned in a skip. The body is wearing a soldier's ID tag, but DNA tests show it's not him. When DS Michael McNab asks for her help identifying the remains Emma found, they discover the two cases are linked in ways they could never have imagined...

    Tracking Truth: Knowledge, Evidence, and Science

    Tracking Truth presents a unified treatment of knowledge, evidence, and epistemological realism and anti-realism about scientific theories. A wide range of knowledge-related phenomena, especially but not only in science, strongly favour the idea of tracking as the key to what makes something knowledge. A subject who tracks the truth - an idea first formulated by Robert Nozick - has the ability to follow the truth through time and changing circumstances. Epistemologists rightly concluded that Nozick's theory was not viable, but a simple revision of that view is not only viable but superior to other current views. In this new tracking account of knowledge, in contrast to the old view, knowledge has the property of closure under known implication, and troublesome counterfactuals are replaced with well-defined conditional probability statements. Of particular interest are the new view's treatment of skepticism, reflective knowledge, lottery propositions, knowledge of logical truth, and the question why knowledge is power in the Baconian sense.

    Ideally, evidence indicates a hypothesis and discriminates it from other possible hypotheses. This is the idea behind a tracking view of evidence, and Sherrilyn Roush provides a defence of a confirmation theory based on the Likelihood Ratio. The accounts of knowledge and evidence she offers provide a deep and seamless explanation of why having better evidence makes one more likely to have knowledge. Roush approaches the question of epistemological realism about scientific theories through the question what is required for evidence, and rejects both traditional realist and traditional anti-realist positions in favour of a new position which evaluates realist claims in a piecemeal fashion according to a general standard of evidence. The results show that while anti-realists were immodest in declaring a priori what science could not do, realists were excessively sanguine about how far our actual evidence has so far taken us.

Atrocities committed by both black and white soldiers and citizens.It took her thirty-five years of broken relationships, nightmares, depression and re-living experiences when “triggers” would present itself, before she finally accepted the magical words: “It’s in the past”.In dealing with the past, writing and music became her best friends.Some characteristics, however, remained part of her, like the lack of fear (even healthy fears), her moral boundaries were shifted forever and being protective over animals and the human race became so etched in her heart, that she often find herself in all kinds of predicaments.God always played a huge part in her life – even when they fought. Deep in her heart she knows He knows best, but she often wanted it to be different.Her hungry, inquisitive mind often wonders and she seeks knowledge, answers and more questions than one would seek a treasure.I trust that you will truly enjoy the collection of poetry.

    Ejaculations from the Charm Factory

    Kissing and telling You ve heard about Sky Gilbert: he s loved by fans of his novels, plays, poetry, and columns: hated by the Toronto Sun and by some members of the gay community. His alter ego Jane, a drag queen, was charged with not wearing a seat belt in a cab, took the case to trial, and won: The judge said I was a reasonable person. Gilbert s theatre, Buddies in Bad Times, was almost closed by The City of Toronto for sponsoring S/M workshops in 1990, and yet he was awarded the Pauline McGibbon Award for directing in 1985, has directed two plays at the Shaw Festival, and had his work performed across North America. The Religious Right has campaigned against him, yet some men argue that his work has changed their lives. So, what s Gilbert all about, what makes him tick? Is he a drag queen? An award-winning artist? A complete slut? Or, maybe, all three? Many are going to be angered by this book, many more will be entertained. One guarantee: everyone is going to be reading Ejaculations from the Charm Factory to see if their names are in it. And yes, they are. But there s also a whole lot more.'

    The Dream Hunters of Corsica

    An insight into the prehistoric occult practices still surviving in Corsica. The dream hunters, or mazzeri, are unknown outside Corsica, and probably date from prehistoric times. At night they go hunting - or dream they do so - and kill an animal, in whom they recognize a human face. The next day they announce the death, which always takes place within a year. Where the mazzeri are harbingers of death, the signadori are guardians of life - they practise folk medicine, but more importantly they secure release from the curse of the "Evil Eye". Unlike the mazzeri, who are mere servants of their dark visions, the signadori deliberately cast spells, which are infused with light and hope. Dorothy Carrington investigates these extraordinary phenomena, relics of past times peculiar to this wild, inhospitable land. She draws parallels with the shamanistic practices of the far north and Africa, and with what is known of prehistoric religion, and analyzes the odd and uneasy relationship between this pre-Christian religion and the Christianity imposed on Corsica through the centuries. In Corsica, the occult has retained its everyday place as an explanation of the mysteries of life and death.

    Lascar is the epic story of one man's journey to fulfil his destiny. When Ayan discovers his brother has cancer, the need to cover medical expenses propels him to leave poverty-stricken Bengal and emulate their late father by becoming a Lascar - shovelling coal in the bowels of the steamships trading between India and England. The brutal reality of this existence leaves Ayan fearing for his life. Fleeing the ship, he disappears into the bitter-cold streets of Victorian London. After serving time for a crime he did not commit, the kindness of a new friend, and a chance meeting with a young half-caste street urchin changes everything, prompting Ayan to re-examine his life. With his faith restored, and the realisation that his journey is complete, Ayan must begin the long trip home.

    'Lascar' is a wonderful study of one man s struggle to be true to himself. The central characters' determination to trust inhis faith, despite the violence and prejudice that hampers his everyattempt at improving his lot, is truly inspirational. As 'Lascar' moves from the slums of Calcutta, to Victorian London, theauthor expertly brings to life the sounds, smells and chaotic nature of London at the height of the Ripper murders. 'Lascar' is a great read, the research involved in creating this novelmust have been exhausting!' --Clifford Thurlow, Sunday Times Top Ten best-selling AuthorLascar is an evocative story that brings to prominence a neglected part of history.

From the rice fields of his home to the squalor of Victorian London, Ayan Miah the Lascar of the title brings the reader on a journey that encompasses not only oceans but also metaphorical gulfs of the spirit. It is a compelling story of endurance in the face of brutality, survival against prejudice and poverty, and the inner struggle to maintain faith and dignity under almost unimaginable hardship. Lascar is not only historical fiction but also a testimony to the strength of the human character. --Caroline Rance, Author of novel, Kill Grief .Lascar brims with all the grand topics of literature: love and death, heroism and skullduggery, humour and pathos, loyalty, brotherly love, art and religion. A good old-fashioned novel. This is a story that needs to be told and it is told by an exciting new writer of literary fiction. --Jon Breakfield, Author of DEATH BY GLASGOW

    Ride the Giant Wolf

    It was a time of great discovery... before the coming of the white man. The Great Plains was a sprawling land filled with taraha, hordes of plodding beasts, and a tribe known as the Wolf Pa'ni. A young man, strong with a restless spirit, goes in search of a dream, a vision, and makes a discovery so remarkable it changes life as he knows it, occurring amid the backdrop of chaos, war, and love. It began in a place called Tuh-parisu and spanned across prairie, mountains, and desert, and came full circle, leading to a confrontation between two men-enemies. One was armed with bow and arrow and fought for pride. The other fought for peace. This is a story of adventure, a journey through the raw wilderness...

    Konev's Golgotha: Operation Typhoon Strikes the Soviet Western Front, October 1941

    This book is a historical study of the events of October 1941 in the Viaz'ma pocket, based on documents found in the Russian Federation's Central Archive of the Ministry of Defense, the German Bundesarchiv, and the US National Archives.

    Mikhail Filippenkov describes the events that took place through the simultaneous, comparative analysis of Soviet and German combat reports according to time, and in the manner of reporting from the places of those events as they happened. The author writes about these events with chronological accuracy, not on the level of army headquarters and higher, but exclusively on the level of the combat units down to the division-level, and with concrete geographical reference to the combat maps of those times.

    Particular attention is paid to the events that took place in the vicinity of Sychevka in Smolensk Oblast', because what happened there has never been deeply researched or examined by anyone in Russia. Unfortunately, research must rely primarily on the combat reports and combat documents of the units of the Wehrmacht's Panzergruppe 3., since almost no documents on the Soviet side have been preserved. They were either destroyed together with the units and formations trapped within the Viaz'ma pocket, or destroyed at an order from above to those units and formations which managed to escape encirclement more or less intact, in order to erase any record of the disaster.

    An incredibly detailed account of one particular engagement between German and Russian troops, examined in minute detail by author Filippenkov and based on Russian and German archive documents, most of which he was lucky to find still intact and not destroyed on the orders of Hitler and Stalin. --Paul Norman Books MonthlyAn interesting and engaging read. --Canadian Army Journal

    Positive Quality Management for a Change

    Who needs quality management? And what does it do for a company? Quality management helps companies be effective and efficient. Internal processes, services, products - all this and much more can be improved by it. Gottfried Giritzer is an accomplished quality manager and is well-versed in all facets of his field. Yet, he had no interest in writing a dry technical book. Instead, his protagonist Graham Gishler recounts his personal experiences. Not difficult to guess that the inventive quality manager Gishler holds some of the same autobiographical traits as the author. Equipped with common sense, Gishler sets about introducing a few improvements at a manufacturer of electronic devices. More by accident than planned, and eyed with much suspicion, Gishler and his few fellow colleagues, head down the stony path that will lead to systematic quality management. They are driven by curiosity and enjoy their journey through uncharted territory. And their pioneer spirit is rewarded ... By regarding the management system as a sensible guideline that should be used to ensure the global optimum of the company, he is able to find acceptance among all employees. He also finds it helpful to combine multiple guideline systems, such as environmental, safety and quality management within an integrated management system - especially when it is applied intelligently and fairly simply. Although the story is full of experiences, it is mainly a fictional one. Narrative freedom allows the author to incorporate anecdotes and irony to show how management can cheerfully and unknowingly end up on the wrong path. This book is meant to assist employees and management working in the field of quality management, as well as in any other area of a company. Because the following holds true: not only can you learn from your mistakes, but from your success as well.

    The Yamato Dynasty: The Secret History of Japan's Imperial Family

    A collective biography of the Japanese Imperial family, covering five generations from the Meiji Restoration of the nineteenth century. Reveals the true nature of the dynasty that has been shrouded in myth and legend. Includes details of the imperial family's involvement in war crimes and the details of the wartime looting operations.

    There are times when the British Royal family doesn't seem quite so bad. There may have been the odd Nazi sympathiser in the past and the present bunch might be out of touch but they've along way to go before they hit the depths of their Japanese counterparts. The chances are that most Westerners will know next to nothing of the Yamato, Japan's current imperial family, whose dynasty began with Emperor Meiji in 1852. In which case, we have something in common with the Japanese. Most of Japan's modern history has been erased from the post-war text books and a whole generation has grown up knowing nothing of the Rape of Nanking, Pearl Harbor, the Second World War death camps and countless other atrocities. All that remains are Hiroshima and Nagasaki, symbols of Japan's eternal innocence.

    In the Spirit: Conversations with the Spirit of Jerry Garcia

    Early one morning in August 1995, Bob Weir called his sister and asked her to check in on Jerry Garcia, who had died only hours before. At first she could not talk to Jerry's spirit because it was too happy to be free. Only with the telepathic help of her brother was she able to break through Jerry's barriers and remind him that he couldn't leave -- he still needed to fulfill his mission on Earth. Thus began an illuminating and introspective three-year journey with the spirit of Jerry Garcia.

    In the Spirit captures not only the wisdom of Jerry Garcia, but also the playful, irreverent, conversational tone that his fans will immediately recognize, whether in his personal message to the band or in his communications to those who read his words and listened to his music. In the Spirit sustains the bond between Jerry and those he loved and those who loved him.

    An adventure in consciousness, a message of love and joy.."In the Spirit" is an adventure in consciousness. It is a book that speaks with humor and conviction about life and how we should live itas seen from the eyes of spirit, in this case the spirit of Jerry Garcia.Intermingled with his own messages are some of my personal experienceswhich add insight to what he is saying.

    The Autobiography of a Tibetan Monk

    Palden Gyatso was born in a Tibetan village in 1933 and became an ordained Buddhist monk eighteen years later. Through sheer determination, he won a place as a student at Drepung Monastery, one of Tibet's 'Three Greats, ' where he came to spiritual and intellectual maturity. However, Tibet was enduring political changes that would soon alter his life irrevocably. When Communist China invaded Tibet in 1950, it embarked on a program of land reform and 'thought reform' that would eventually affect all of Tibet's citizens and nearly decimate its ancient culture. In 1959, along with thousands of other monks, Palden Gyatso was forced into labor camps and prisons. He would spend the next thirty-three years of his life being tortured, interrogated, and persecuted simply for the strength of his beliefs, for being a monk. In 1992 Palden Gyatso was released from prison and escaped across the Himalayas to India, smuggling with him the instruments of his torture. Since then, he has devoted himself to revealing the extent of Chinese oppression in Tibet and the atrocities he endured. Palden Gyatso's story bears witness to the resilience of the human spirit and to the strength of Tibet's proud civilization, faced with cultural genocide.

    Why Concepts Matter (Studies in the History of Political Thought)

    Journeys to Heaven and to Hell

    While death, that great and inexorable leveller, lies ahead of us all, it is but a staging post on this journey we call life. Beyond death is the next realm, wherein that which survives our physical body, the soul or wraith, continues to exist, perhaps indefinitely. Tradition divides this mysterious domain into two distinct and separate regions, one of which, called heaven, is reputedly light-filled and beautiful, the other, known as hell, is dark and awful. In this fascinating and uplifting, yet also frightening book, Rodney Davies examines the testimony of many of the unwitting visitors to both places, most of whom made their remarkable journeys while undergoing a near-death experience (or NDE). He charts the gradual unfolding of the geography of the next world during the past three thousand years, and he describes what we will all one day see and experience, both en route to and within, the bliss that is heaven or the horror that is hell. His analysis also reveals that as our post-mortem destination depends upon how we have lived our lives, we therefore exist in a moral universe.

    Rodney Davies has been writing about strange happenings for over a quarter of a century, and he is now one of the UK's best-known authors in the paranormal field. By drawing upon his science background (he trained as a zoologist) he has written fourteen bestselling books, which together have been translated into twelve foreign languages. The last four, Supernatural Disappearances, Doubles: The Enigma of the Second Self, Buried Alive and Disembodied Voices, are also published by Hale. Rodney Davies lives in Finchley and in addition to writing books, he enjoys guitar-playing, gardening, encouraging wildlife, and doing the odd spot of family research.

    Perfect People

    John and Naomi Klaesson are grieving the death of their four-year-old son from a rare genetic disorder. They desperately want another child, but when they find out they are both carriers of a rogue gene, they realize the odds of their next child contracting the disease are high. Then they hear about geneticist Doctor Leo Dettore. He has methods that can spare them the heartache of ever losing another child to any disease – even if his methods cost more than they can afford. His clinic is where their nightmare begins. They should have realised that something was wrong when they saw the list. Choices of eye colour, hair, sporting abilities. They can literally design their child. Now it's too late to turn back. Naomi is pregnant, and already something is badly wrong ...

    Peter James is acknowledged as being one of the top thriller writers in the UK, and his series of crime novels featuring DI Roy Grace are the best of the current genre.

    The White Giraffe Series: Dolphin Song: Book 2

    It's June - winter in South Africa, and Martine and her grandmother are enjoying a cold but beautiful walk along the beach when they find a stranded, dying dolphin. Martine uses her gift of healing to help it back to the ocean but it's only the latest in a series of inexplicable beachings of dolphins and whales - and the start of a brand new adventure for Martine.

    After a last stolen midnight ride on her beloved white giraffe, Jemmy, Martine's class is off on an amazing school trip to the islands of Mozambique to witness the legendary 'Sardine Run'. It's a trip that goes drastically wrong and Martine, with close friend Ben, finds herself swimming in shark-infested waters, marooned on an uninhabited island and suddenly at the centre of mysterious submarine goings-on as she tries to save a pod of 100 dolphins from certain death.

    Like her debut novel, THE WHITE GIRAFFE, DOLPHIN SONG has plenty of action and adventure, and delves deeply into Martine's relationships with the people and animals around her. It makes her question the true nature of her gift, and what she will be called upon to do next. The incredible beauty of the flora and fauna of this little known corner of Africa is richly evoked as a result of Lauren's in depth knowledge and research of the area.

    Searching for Extraterrestrial Intelligence: SETI Past, Present, and Future (The Frontiers Collection)

    This book is a collection of essays written by the very scientists and engineers who have led, and continue to lead, the scientific quest known as SETI, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Dividedinto three parts, the first section, 'The Spirit of SETI Past', written by the surviving pioneers of this then emerging discipline, reviews the major projects undertaken during the first 50 years of SETI science and theresults of that research.

    In the second section, 'The Spirit of SETI Present', the present-day science and technology is discussed in detail, providing the technical background tocontemporary SETI instruments, experiments, and analytical techniques, including the processing of the received signals to extract potential alien communications.

    In the third and finalsection, 'The Spirit of SETI Future', the book looks ahead to the possible directions that SETI will take in the next 50 years, addressing such important topics as interstellar message construction, the risks and assumptionsof interstellar communications, when we might make contact, what aliens might look like and what is likely to happen in the aftermath of such a contact.

    Think South: How We Got Six Men and Forty Dogs Across Antarctica

    What does it take to move forty dogs, three sleds, twenty tons of food and gear, and six men from all over the world across nearly four thousand of the coldest miles on earth? Cathy de Moll, the executive director of the 1990 International Trans-Antarctica Expedition, introduces the wild cast of characters who made it happen, on the ice and off: leaders Will Steger and Jean-Louis Etienne, who first met accidentally, on the way to the North Pole; Valery Skatchkov, the Soviet bureaucrat who supplied a "hot" Russian airplane; Yasue Okimoto, who couldn't bear to leave headquarters in Minnesota while her boyfriend was on the ice; Qin Dahe, the Chinese member of the team, who didn't know how to ski; the millions of children who followed the expedition in schools around the world, learning about the fragility and ferocity of the seventh continent; and many others.

    These stories of near misses and magical coincidences are as suspenseful and compelling as the expedition's headlines--and they have never been told. But they also reflect the greatest lesson of the project: the international cooperation that was needed for the expedition's success is every bit as essential for the preservation of Antarctica today.

    Fermented Liquors: a treatise on brewing, distilling, rectifying, and manufacturing of sugars, wines, spirits, and all known liquors, including cider and vinegar. Also, hundreds of valuable direction

    KuMERous pamphlets containing recipes and guides for the distiller have of late years been promul- gated ; none, however, have realized the just expec- tations of those men who are trafficking in fermented liquors. They searched in vain for information, but could not find it, and were disappointed in their jDur- chases. The subject of distilling and brewing has not been treated as a science, and the author con- ceived the idea that such a vacancy may be supplied by his humble efforts. He has devoted several years to the investigation of this branch of chemistry, and has spent the great- er part of his life in the study of natural history and philosophy; and he feels, therefore, that his claim for issuing a work bearing on these studies may have some weight with those persons who have long been acquainted witli him. Although he is constrained to confess that he was not fully prepared to send forth to the public a full and comprehensive treatise on such important sub- jects as the title-page would indicate, and would PREFACE. have preferred prosecuting his experiments for a longer time, so as to be fully satisfied himself that his labors will be crowned with success, and that his contributions on the subjects treated of should give unqualified satisfaction ; yet, receiving numerous pressing letters and calls from a great many of his city :and country customers, — who presumed that, being a manufacturer, importer, and dealer of the various essences, flavorings, and essential oils, he would be capable of giving at once every desired information, — and not wishing, by a refusal, to impede the prog- ress of his business relations, he has set to work and compiled the following pages, imperfect and incom- plete as they may be, which will contain many new preparations, manipulations, secrets, and drawings, that never appeared in print ; and he trusts that his present eftbrts may prove useful and lucrative to his friends. The author begs to call the attention of his read- ers to a number of subjects which have been intro- duced in this treatise, and which are altogether novel and instructive ; such as the new rectifying process, and substances more eftectual for the rectify- ing tubs ; the apparatus for converting whisky into strong vinegar, within twelve hours, at a very trifling cost ; the artificial cider, at less than half the usual price; and the manufacture of many wines and other liquors, never before made public. PEEFACE. 5 The experience of thirty years' active life in his profession, of a Practical Chemist — his desire to keep pace with the advancement of science, and to manu- facture all the new productions used of late years in medicine and the arts, have given him many advan- tages; and he thought it advisable to communicate these stores of information to the public. Part II. treats on Hygeine, relating to health, enumerating the most common diseases, their reme- dies, and medical cases, for family use ; also describing hundreds of nostrums got up by empirics for the sake of gain. Part III. is the Polytechnic and concluding part. It comprises many new alloys employed in metal- lurgy, chemicals used in ambrotyping, artificial guano or fertilizers, artificial gum arable, and a description of all the artificial gems, and how to imitate them ; on bleaching of shellac and wax ; on cleaning, clearing, and cleansing mixtures; on ce- ments, from that for filling cavities of teeth to that of an iron I'etort ; on colored fires, a part of pyrotech- nics, giving many new mixtures for colors which are cheap; many new prescriptions in cosmetics, such as soaps, Cologne and other perfumed essences ; dentifri- ces, hair-dyes and invigorators; on ink and varnishes, and many other preparations highly useful to the druggist, chemist, perfumer

    The Diablo: The Sin War #1: Birthright: Birthright Bk. 1

    When missionaries come to speak to the people of Kehjan-a once-united but now splintered city in the eastern part of the world-many listen, but little is understood other than the fact that angels and demons vie to steer the course of human destiny. However, one person who has no use for either side is Uldyssian, son of Diomedes. He questions the significance of either sect in the lives of common folk. Then, both missionaries are brutally slain, and the evidence points to Uldyssian, who is about to learn he himself has a destiny far beyond anything he ever imagined.

As in this case the pendulum drives the wheels and hands, the accuracy of the clock must depend to a great extent on the construction of what in an ordinary clock would be the escapement, and Messrs.

    How To Build A Floor Covering Dealership Business (Special Edition): The Only Book You Need To Launch, Grow and Succeed

    In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to launch and run a successful business venture.

    Lady Policeman

    So many people asked the author: ‘But what does a policewoman do?’

    Six years policing London’s West End in the 1950s provided plenty of answers. In this book, Joan Lock gives them with honesty and humour. She takes us behind the scenes, into the life of an ordinary police officer – not the familiar CID crime buster. We accompany her ‘on the beat’ for early, late and night shifts, and experience the public’s friendly, curious or downright rude reactions to a woman in authority.

    The lady policeman makes mistakes, is less than efficient at times, and even breaks some of the sacred disciplinary rules. Her work included dealing with runaway juveniles, attempted suicides, abandoned babies and the mental disturbed.

    She sees an astonishingly varied cross-section of London life: Piccadilly Circus at dawn, devoid of traffic and still wet from the attention’s of the council’s cleaning department; the Mall at the Trooping of the Colour ceremony; the foyer of a cinema on a royalty-studded premiere; hostels and hospitals, prisons and courtrooms. There are visits to nightclubs for observations or raids, and glimpses into training school and ‘The Yard’. Her ‘patch’ took in cosmopolitan Soho and wealthy Mayfair where prostitutes lined many of the streets. In the line of duty Joan even posed as one of them.

    ‘On the whole,’ she says, ‘it was quite an experience.’

Included as a bonus in this volume is a second intriguing and riveting autobiographical novel: Flyswatter.

    George Wright was a foundling. Left at the door of a Texas farmhouse near the end of the Depression, he ran away from his foster home when he was nine-years-old. Col. Wright was a hobo, farm and ranch hand, a woodsman and a hunter. He has also worked as a lumberjack, and a railroad section hand. He entered the military, where he rose to the rank of Colonel.

    From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this 'golden age' can today be considered works of art.

This fascinating new history of Route 7 from Norwalk to Canaan,

    Three Drops of Blood and A Cloud of Cocaine

    The latest literary sensation from Switzerland: brilliant young novelist Quentin Mouron (25) with his fifth work of fiction, his first crime novel, brilliantly reviewed and well received in France and Switzerland. This is the first time his work is available in English.

    Breaking with many conventions of the genre, the novel holds a satirical mirror to society by entering the minds of two men at the edge of sanity. Sheriff McCarthy, a church-going family man, is trying to keep a boundary between the sordidness of his investigations and his private life. He is also trying to keep faith in human nature. But Franck, willing to kill for the sake of a good pun, dominates the story. He is a disturbing, violent, decadent character, a man always rushing to the bathroom for another line of coke, revealing the darker workings of the case with a blood curdling laugh.

    "Mouron makes his English-language debut with a knife-edged noir set in Watertown, Mass., which combines spare prose with a compelling murder mystery plot." ---- Publishers Weekly
