Still Solving the Voynich Manuscript by L. A. Braun Price verified 14 minutes ago

Want to decode the encoded 'Voynich Manuscript'? This book delivers answers. It is a great picture-based capsule summary review of the evidence of the translation of the encoded 'Voynich Manuscript.' It revisits the basic material of 'Solving the Voynich Manuscript' but enjoys a deeper dive into the Zodiac perspective of the encoded manuscript. This book delivers the 'Voynich's true message by analyzing it in comparison to the German 'Ludwig Manuscript,' which had derived from its exact same source. In this comparative analysis, both of these manuscripts had operated to some extent as medical guides--elucidating divination by astrological and meteorological phenomena. Had there been rebus picture word puzzles in the artwork of the 'Voynich Manuscript'? Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through a comparative analysis between the 'Voynich Manuscript'--which is a famous encrypted writing which no one has ever been able to crack--and the German 'Ludwig Manuscript.' The author provides a tight evidentiary argument for the 'Voynich Manuscript' originating from the exact same auctorial source. The readers embark upon a tour through widely varying perspectives on the 'Voynich Manuscript.' Readers will then learn the intricacies of its secrets, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the manuscript, fishing out its actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. This book is a fast paced thriller that decrypts real clues in the artwork. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the manuscript's riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn't what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on ...

Upon My Death: A Little Tombstone Cozy Mystery (Little Tombstone Cozy Mysteries Book 1) by Celia Kinsey 4.7 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

When Emma Iverson's great aunt Geraldine leaves her a rundown roadside attraction in rural New Mexico, the inheritance comes with strings attached. If Emma wants to take possession of Little Tombstone's motel, cafe, curio shop and Museum of the Unexplained, then she has to agree to "Love, Honor and Cherish" Earp, her late aunt's ancient and irritable pug. It says so, right there in the will. What Aunt Geraldine's will conveniently omits to mention are the bodies buried underneath the trailer court. Note: When this book was first published in January 2020 it was titled The Good, the Bad, and the Pugly. The title was altered to more closely conform to cozy reader expectations. About the Little Tombstone Cozy Mystery Series: These quirky, light-hearted cozies are set in rural New Mexico and feature a collection of endearing residents from the village of Amatista and its main attraction, a dilapidated roadside tourist stop called Little Tombstone. Little Tombstone is a truncated version of its namesake, Tombstone, Arizona, and is home to a variety of sweet but eccentric characters. Cast of Recurring Characters: Emma Iverson: Our sleuth and heir to Little Tombstone. Earp: Emma's ancient and irritable pug, inherited from her Great Aunt Geraldine. Hercules: Earp's porcine companion. Juanita Gonzoles: Proprietress of the Bird Cage Cafe. Georgia: Emma's cousin and coheir.

Writing and Madness in a Time of Terror: a memoir by Afarin Majidi 4.8 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 2 minutes ago

Earning an MFA in writing at the New School, working at Rolling Stone magazine, and being courted by an editor at a prestigious publishing house -- Afarin Majidi should be thrilled with the direction her life is taking as she turns thirty. Instead, she is spiraling into the depths of madness as she seeks love and acceptance in an Islamophobic society. After colleagues at the magazine drug and rape her, she's left with an unfinished novel. She turns to a former professor, James Lasdun, with whom she develops a toxic obsession. Majidi is the woman he calls "Nasreen" in his memoir, Give Me Everything You Have. Raw and honest, Writing and Madness in a Time of Terror is a haunting meditation on identity, misogyny, violence, and mental illness. Majidi earned her BA from Barnard College and an MFA from New School University. She is the niece of Abdol-Madgid Madgidi, a prominent cabinet member during the Shah of Iran's reign. Writing and Madness in a Time of Terror begins with her family's narrow escape from execution during the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Mobocracy: The Cultural & Political War to Destroy our Republic Under God by Jake Jacobs (LIFE SENTENCE Publishing, LLC) 3.4 Stars (13 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Wake up America, before it is too late, before we have communism in America! The mobocrats mean business. Watch the culture war, study the mob, listen to their words and watch their ways and understand their demands to change and transform our Republic under God. The original tea party movement, our Founders, warned us that if we were to keep our Republic we would always have to remain diligent to the cause of freedom and vigilantly aware of those who would under the guise of freedom destroy life and liberty. America is under attack. Its constitutional rights, institutions and values are under daily assault. But the principal culprits are not foreign terrorists. They are influential and powerful Americans, applying Marxist theory, secretly stirring up disunion and disloyalty in the shifting shadows of the Democratic Party. We have stealth terrorists in America. And, communism is creeping into America. Read this book. Pray for our country. Teach your children the Biblical principles our founders believed and lived. And support the men and women who are willing to set everything else aside and speak up for the truth. Semper Fi to the Republic! About the Author Jake Jacobs was in Madison Wisconsin during the culture clash and protests at the capitol and was swarmed by tens of thousands of mobocrats who kept shouting over and over again, "This IS what democracy looks like!" Kill the bill!" and "Stop Union busting!" The signs they carried were scrawled with R-rated words of hate. Being a history professor, Dr. Jacobs has spent hours researching the liberal mob agenda and in this book discusses the little known motives of Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Tom Hayden, Acorn, and even Barack Obama. Each of these people and organizations, and more mentioned in the book, have a clear cut socialist/Marxist agenda, and believe that our free country is an enemy of the people. How they can think that this is the case is simply astounding, but what they are doing is ...

History of Woman Suffrage - Volume I by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (GIANLUCA) Price verified 11 hours ago

"The prolonged slavery of woman is the darkest page in human history. A survey of the condition of the race through those barbarous periods, when physical force governed the world, when the motto, "might makes right," was the law, enables one to account, for the origin of woman's subjection to man without referring the fact to the general inferiority of the sex, or Nature's law. Writers on this question differ as to the cause of the universal degradation of woman in all periods and nations. One of the greatest minds of the century has thrown a ray of light on this gloomy picture by tracing the origin of woman's slavery to the same principle of selfishness and love of power in man that has thus far dominated all weaker nations and classes. This brings hope of final emancipation, for as all nations and classes are gradually, one after another, asserting and maintaining their independence, the path is clear for woman to follow. The slavish instinct of an oppressed class has led her to toil patiently through the ages, giving all and asking little, cheerfully sharing with man all perils and privations by land and sea, that husband and sons might attain honor and success. Justice and freedom for herself is her latest and highest demand... "

Enigmatic Noah: Da Vinci's REAL Hidden Secrets by L. A. Braun Price verified 2 minutes ago

A simple man had drifted afloat in a wooden ark on a vast sea as the last remnant of the human race. Had there been rebus picture word puzzles in the artwork related to Noah and the Ark of the Great Deluge? Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the lifetime events of the great patriarch Noah. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this book first highlights the fine points of the fundamental story and then acquaints the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through Noah's adventures as one of the earliest and most influential Hebrew patriarchs. Readers will then learn the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the rebus picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. The Art had been used for a very specific purpose -- and readers are guaranteed to be surprised with the deciphered end result. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the alchemy riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn't what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on how these ancient works should be considered. Surprisingly, there had been hidden secrets in the artwork related to Noah.

They too have secrets that will turn history on its head, and comic sass that will keep you laughing. And if that isn't enough, there is even a cameo appearance by Anne Boleyn. You've read all of the traditional, serious and romantic takes on the legendary characters of the English Renaissance. Why not try your Tudors and your Shakespeare with a new and different twist?

Buy the Paperback version of this book, and get the kindle eBook version included for FREE** The Art of Reading People: The Art of Reading People: A Psychologist's Guide to Learning the Art of How to Analyze People Through Psychological Techniques, Body Language, and Personality Types offers readers a unique and mind-blowing set of knowledge and tools that you can use every day of your life with anyone you meet. The art of reading people involves an in-depth study of human behavior in conjunction with how people express their emotions, even those which are deeply hidden, through their bodies, oftentimes without even realizing it. Manipulation: The manipulator is the one who cleverly and unscrupulously influences both people and situations to their own advantage, and this makes them the most dangerous type of people out there. Manipulation comes in several forms, and if left undeterred, it can create an extremely toxic situation. People are such complex creatures. It is hard to tell what someone's true intentions are until it is too late. If the person that you're dealing with is a manipulator, that "too late" can often spell disaster. They certainly get a bad rep, but why do they do the things they do? What tactics do they use and how is it they seem to get the better of us and we don't even see it coming until it's too late? Is manipulation really all that bad, or can it be used for good if done in the right way? Those are the answers we are about to find out. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Do you find yourself often feeling anxious, unmotivated, depressed, or feeling negative about yourself? Is it so often that it is beginning to impact your day-to-day life? Have you wondered if your feelings are normal, but you feel too ashamed to ask those close to you about their own experiences, and you are unable or unwilling to speak to a therapist? Are your negative emotions causing you to react disproportionately when you are faced with a challenging situation? Do ...

The labors of those who have edited these volumes are not only finished as far as this work extends, but if three-score years and ten be the usual limit of human life, all our earthly endeavors must end in the near future. After faithfully collecting material for several years, and making the best selections our judgment has dictated, we are painfully conscious of many imperfections the critical reader will perceive. But since stereotype plates will not reflect our growing sense of perfection, the lavish praise of friends as to the merits of these pages will have its antidote in the defects we ourselves discover. We may however without egotism express the belief that this volume will prove specially interesting in having a large number of contributors from England, France, Canada and the United States, giving personal experiences and the progress of legislation in their respective localities.

Just Watch the Game, a new ebook about Pittsburgh and its sports teams, is a combination of John Steigerwald's previous regional best-selling paperbacks, "Just Watch the Game" (2010) and "Just Watch the Game (again)" (2011). Including new material and edited for a national audience, it is especially aimed at Pittsburghers and ex-Pittsburghers. But fans of the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates everywhere will be pleased by John's stories, dry humor and no-nonsense opinions about what is wrong and right with a sports world that has forgotten that the games themselves are what matters most, not the hype and hoopla surrounding them. See www.justwatchthegame.com for Steigerwald's sports blog and latest columns. Just Watch the Game Never boring, uniquely opinionated and often controversial, John Steigerwald has been covering Pittsburgh's sports as a TV and radio reporter, newspaper columnist and talk show host since 1977. Steigerwald was raised in the suburbs on a steady diet of sports iin the 1950s and 1960s. He was going to Pirates games at Forbes Field when Roberto Clemente was a rookie and to Steelers games when the team was the laughing stock of the NFL. During his long career on Pittsburgh's top TV stations he had up-close encounters with Pittsburgh superstars Terry Bradshaw, Mario Lemieux, Barry Bonds and Arnold Palmer, not to mention the late Chuck Noll, heavyweight champion Michael Moorer and Howard Cosell. An eclectic collection of short stories and essays, Just Watch the Game is the unique, funny and unflinchingly critical memoir of a veteran sports journalist who has enjoyed his life playing, watching and critiquing sports. He reflects on riding the buses in minor league baseball, experiencing the rise and fall of local TV news, pinch-hitting for Dale Berra and "starring" in a movie with Michael Keaton. Against the background of the inexorable dumbing down of the American sports fan and the tragic feminization of the American male, Steigerwald offers radical ...

The Life of Mikey: A Memoir by Michael K. Willis (Liber Libri Publishing) 4.2 Stars (53 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

Michael "Mikey" K. Willis spent his most impressionable years in southern Appalachia. In his eye-opening new memoir, he perfectly captures the local culture of 1960s rural North Carolina. Willis's memoir shows both the unique heritage of the region and his personal struggles as a young man growing up in an abusive family. The mountains of North Carolina serve as a deterrent to outsiders, but the locals embrace the beautiful scenery and rugged isolation. This isolation serves to make Mikey's life a living hell. Even in the wild beauty of the mountains, he can't escape the violent actions of his parents. If his father isn't missing, he is beating young Mikey. But his neighbors know Mikey's father only as the pastor of the local Baptist church. As Willis explores this early-childhood trauma, he also chronicles his encounters with southern gospel music, baptisms, and revival meetings. Things change for his family when his father accepts a position at a church in Asheville, North Carolina. Mikey suddenly finds himself in the big city. As he makes new friends and encounters the pangs of first love, he finally stands up to his father and plans a better future for himself.

The Zanfretta Case: Chronicle of an Incredible True Story by Rino Di Stefano 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

In the night between Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 of December 1978, the security guard Pier Fortunato Zanfretta of the Institute of Private Security Val Bisagno in Genoa, Italy, was found in a state of shock and terror-stricken near the country house Casa Nostra (Our House) placed in Marzano of Torriglia, a village up in the hills of Genoa. When he woke up, Zanfretta told shaking that he saw "a very big alien, three meters (118.11 inches) tall, with a fat and corrugated gray skin, like it was a flabby suit," who few minutes later fly away "aboard a giant bright light triangular shaped, with small little lights of different colors in the upper side." During regressive hypnosis, the night adventure was borne out by the man, and he told was dragged inside the "spaceship" where four monstrous aliens examined him in great details. An investigation by Carabinieri, the Italian military police, verified that 52 people saw a very big flying bright saucer at that time in the Torriglia sky. Besides, in the meadow where the others' security guards found Zanfretta, Carabinieri found out a three meters mark, horseshoe shaped. The people were still thinking to that mysterious encounter of the third kind, that twenty days later it happened again. This time Carabinieri found out footprints 50 centimeters long (19.69 inches) near the security guard's car. The Zanfretta case was just beginning.

The Rooker-Feldman Doctrine by LandMark Publications Price verified 11 hours ago

THIS CASEBOOK contains a selection of U. S. Court of Appeals decisions that analyze, interpret and apply the Rooker-Feldman doctrine. * * * Rooker-Feldman's jurisdictional bar protects the Supreme Court's certiorari jurisdiction under Section 1257 of Title 28 of the United States Code. It ensures that the United States Supreme Court is the only federal court to hear appeals from judgments rendered by the highest court of a state (or, as here, the District of Columbia). See D.C. Court of Appeals v. Feldman, 460 U.S. 462, 476, 103 S.Ct. 1303, 75 L.Ed.2d 206 (1983); Rooker v. Fidelity Tr. Co., 263 U.S. 413, 44 S.Ct. 149, 68 L.Ed. 362 (1923); see also Gray v. Poole, 275 F.3d 1113, 1119 (D.C. Cir. 2002). Operationally, the Rooker-Feldman doctrine "is confined to cases of the kind from which the doctrine acquired its name: cases brought by [i] state-court losers [ii] complaining of injuries caused by state-court judgments rendered before the [federal] district court proceedings commenced and [iii] inviting district court review and rejection of those judgments."

The GREAT Liquid Diet by Leonard Mehlmauer (Grand Medicine Books) 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Created by Traditional Naturopath Leonard Mehlmauer (ND, ret.) in 1975, The GREAT Liquid Diet has been used to help many patients, friends, students, colleagues and family. The basic principle is "less is more!" By reducing the food processing work of the mouth, stomach and bowel, much bodily energy is freed up for purification. In health as in life, purification is the name of the game. Their high natural nutrient content make pure raw foods healthier than cooked. Cooking loses many nutrients. Raw or cooked, solid foods take much energy for mouth and stomach to break down -- and the bowel to process. By blending the (mostly) raw GLD foods, we get the nutrients -- while the blender and juicer do the chewing -- saving MAJOR energy for the all-important purification! But the good stuff doesn't end there. Most of us don't eat all-raw -- or even hi-raw (>80%). The GLD takes GMO, pesticides, and other modern dangers into account -- a major part of its success. It gets better. Nearly 5 decades (since 1972) of clinical and personal work provides the practical, realistic details of how the GLD applies in your life (GLDLifestyle). After seeing literally hundreds of cases of chronic disease healed or helped, we know the power of the GLD to change lives for the better. Weight loss, pain removal, beating drugs, longevity, youthful appearance -- mere side-effects of this simple, gentle and amazing purification program. Children, the elderly -- virtually anyone can do the GLD. Are you ready? Welcome!

Take a rollicking romp through the past and make an investment in your financial future with History Lessons for the Modern Investor. Learn important lessons from historical figures to become a better investor today: Julius Caesar, courtesy of some heavily armed guys in togas, discovered that mental shortcuts can lead to disappointing results.

His economic theory is the secret to funding a long retirement. And you won't risk getting burned at the stake. George Washington's inauspicious early days don't lie; they reveal a core theory of investment. The fledgling soldier eventually took the presidential oath of office on a balcony in New York at 26 Wall Street, proving that random paths can lead to success -- even on Wall Street... And many more!

The Deception: Creation versus Evolution by Steven Wright 4.4 Stars (14 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Creation or evolution? Did God speak everything into existence or was it all made through natural processes? Does it really matter, anyway? Dr. Jeff Duncan, the newly hired biology professor at Grogan University, is about to discover the truth. The Genesis Creation, Noah's Ark, the Tower of Babel... Jeff was taught all the classic Bible stories as a child, and although he accepted them at face value, he was never taught how to defend his faith, nor were his Sunday school teachers able to provide answers to the many questions he asked. Faced with a series of life-altering events, Jeff is forced to choose between his childhood faith and the evolutionary biology he learned in college and has now been hired to teach. If the historical accounts in Genesis are not true, then what about the rest of the Bible? Jeff begins to question everything he had been taught as a child and almost denies his faith altogether, but God has something else in store for him. Aside from his crisis of faith, Jeff faces the challenges of caring for his aging mother with dementia. How will his understanding of evolution affect his view of human dignity and the care he gives his mother? Why couldn't Jeff ever establish a firm foundation as a child and understand his faith back then? Shouldn't the people who were teaching him in church every Sunday be able to answer his questions? Were his Sunday school teachers deceiving him all those years by just telling about Bible "stories," or, now as a professor of evolution, is Jeff part of... the deception?

Shattered Lives Broken Dreams: William Cooper and Australian Aborigines Protest Holocaust (William Cooper Gentle Warrior Series Book 2) by Barbara Miller (Barbara Miller Books) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Can there be new facts about the holocaust? This is one of those rare holocaust narratives of resistance to the holocaust by Australian Aborigines - a world away from the fray. They were not even citizens in their own land but, after Kristallnacht, made a brave stand. William Cooper led the Australian Aborigines League in a protest against Kristallnacht, the Night of the Broken Glass, which resulted in shattered lives and was recognised as the start of the Holocaust. They protested the "cruel persecution of the Jews" by marching to the German Consulate in Melbourne on 6 December 1938 three weeks after the 9-10 November pogrom in Germany, Austria and Sudetenland that saw 91 Jews killed, Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues destroyed with shattered glass or fire. About 30,00 Jews were sent to concentration camps. This book follows how the story was lost to history and then found with William Cooper being honoured in many ways by Jews in Australia and at Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Center in Israel. His family has carried on his legacy and the story covers his family's trip to Israel and Berlin in 2017 to continue his work. Of holocaust books, it has a twist. Aboriginal William Cooper was a noted civil rights leader for his people but the only protest march he led was for the Jews. Read this inspiriting story. This book has facts about the holocaust that will be new and startling to you but it adds to the history on Jews and the history of Australian Aborigines. This book covers his story and his grandson's work to fulfill his unfinished dreams and how he has been honoured in Australia and Israel, even having a federal Australian electorate named after him and an Academic Chair of Resistance to the Holocaust named after him at Yad Vashem. Australian Aboriginal William Cooper has been described as Australia's Martin Luther King Jnr, Mandela, Gandhi or even an Aboriginal Moses by various commentators. "I think of the great Jewish leader Moses as he ...

An Introduction to Syntropy by Ulisse Di Corpo 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

As a mathematician Luigi Fantappiè could not accept that Heisenberg had rejected half of the solutions of the fundamental equations and in 1941, while listing the properties of the forward and backward in time energy, Fantappiè discovered that the forward in time energy is governed by the law of entropy, whereas the backward in time energy is governed by a complementary law that he named syntropy, combining the Greek words syn which means converging and tropos which means tendency. Entropy is the tendency towards energy dissipation, the famous second law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of heat death. On the contrary, syntropy is the tendency towards energy concentration, increase in differentiation, complexity and structures. These are the mysterious properties of life!

Envy, Poison, and Death: Women on Trial in Classical Athens by Esther Eidinow (OUP Oxford) 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

At the heart of this volume are three trials held in Athens in the fourth century BCE. The defendants were all women and in each case the charges involved a combination of ritual activities. Two were condemned to death. Because of the brevity of the ancient sources, and their lack of agreement, the precise charges are unclear, and the reasons for taking these women to court remain mysterious. Envy, Poison, and Death takes the complexity and confusion of the evidence not as a riddle to be solved, but as revealing multiple social dynamics. It explores the changing factors - material, ideological, and psychological - that may have provoked these events. It focuses in particular on the dual role of envy (phthonos) and gossip as processes by which communities identified people and activities that were dangerous, and examines how and why those local, even individual, dynamics may have come to shape official civic decisions during a time of perceived hardship. At first sight so puzzling, these trials reveal a vivid picture of the socio-political environment of Athens during the early-mid fourth century BCE, including responses to changes in women's status and behaviour, and attitudes to ritual activities within the city. The volume reveals some of the characters, events, and even emotions that would help to shape an emergent concept of magic: it suggests that the boundary of acceptable behaviour was shifting, not only within the legal arena but also through the active involvement of society beyond the courts.

Evaluating Climate Change Action for Sustainable Development by Juha I. Uitto (Springer) Price verified 5 hours ago

This book is open access under a Creative Commons license. This authoritative book presents the ever progressing state of the art in evaluating climate change strategies and action. It builds upon a selection of relevant and practical papers and presentations given at the 2nd International Conference on Evaluating Climate Change and Development held in Washington DC in 2014 and includes perspectives from independent evaluations of the major international organisations supporting climate action in developing countries, such as the Global Environment Facility. The first section of the book sets the stage and provides an overview of independent evaluations, carried out by multilateral development banks and development organisations. Important topics include how policies and organisations aim to achieve impact and how this is measured, whether climate change is mainstreamed into other development programs, and whether operations are meeting the urgency of climate change challenges. The following sections focus on evaluation of climate change projects and policies as they link to development, from the perspective of international organisations, NGO's, multilateral and bilateral aid agencies, and academia. The authors share methodologies or approaches used to better understand problems and assess interventions, strategies and policies. They also share challenges encountered, what was done to solve these and lessons learned from evaluations. Collectively, the authors illustrate the importance of evaluation in providing evidence to guide policy change to informed decision-making.

Death Troupe by Vincent H. O'Neil (FNG Press) 4.3 Stars (16 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

The Jerome Barron Players have a problem. Their writer, Ryan Betancourt, has killed himself under mysterious circumstances and they need a replacement right away. The Players, unofficially known as Death Troupe, come together once a year to perform a high-end murder mystery play written specifically for that season's host town. Their writer has to possess special talents, as there's a wager involved: If the townspeople can correctly identify the murderer before the show's final act, they don't have to pay for the engagement. So far, no town has ever won the bet. Enter Jack Glynn, original writer for the Barron Players. He and Ryan wrote two Death Troupe engagements before Ryan stole Jack's girlfriend, lead actress Allison Green. Although Jack found fame in Hollywood after quitting the troupe, eccentric director Jerome Barron convinces him to return for one show: The upcoming engagement in the Adirondack town of Schuyler Mills. It is only then that the troupe's advance man, private investigator Wade Parker, tells Jack of the strange events which surrounded the group's previous engagement in Red Bend, California. A local retiree killed himself a few days after the performance -- an act Wade suspects was prompted by the storyline of Ryan's final play. He also reveals that Ryan was greatly unnerved by anonymous third parties who had interfered with the group's marquee clue distribution. This is one of the unique features of Death Troupe: As the performance approaches, clues are sprinkled through the town in a variety of ways, from fake headstones bearing characters' names to real players acting out their assigned roles. In Red Bend, a stranger pretending to be a troupe member had dropped clues that were surprisingly accurate, and Ryan had reacted badly to this -- perhaps badly enough to kill himself. Events take a sinister turn shortly after Jack arrives in the small, snow-covered village of Schuyler Mills. Someone leaves a bizarre arrangement of black roses ...

Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives (Palgrave Socio-Legal Studies) by Anthony Good (Palgrave Macmillan) Price verified 17 minutes ago

Drawing on new research material from ten European countries, Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives brings together a range of detailed accounts of the legal and bureaucratic processes by which asylum claims are decided. The book includes a legal overview of European asylum determination procedures, followed by sections on the diverse actors involved, the means by which they communicate, and the ways in which they make life and death decisions on a daily basis. It offers a contextually rich account that moves beyond doctrinal law to uncover the gaps and variances between formal policy and legislation, and law as actually practiced. The contributors employ a variety of disciplinary perspectives - sociological, anthropological, geographical and linguistic - but are united in their use of an ethnographic methodological approach. Through this lens, the book captures the confusion, improvisation, inconsistency, complexity and emotional turmoil inherent to the process of claiming asylum in Europe.

An Autobiography: Or, The Story of My Experiments with Truth by Mohandas K. Gandhi (Open Road Media) 4.7 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

The remarkable life and inspiring beliefs of a legendary peacemaker and liberator of India -- in his own words. Remember that all through history, there have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they seem invincible. But in the end, they always fall. Always. In the story of his life from early childhood through 1921, Mohandas K. Gandhi candidly reveals his young investigations into sin and seeking atonement; the philosophy, art, and literature that influenced his thoughts and ideas; and his first experiences with politics and protest, which would provide the foundation for his nonviolent struggle for justice, equality, and Indian independence from the British Empire. Gandhi's intention in setting down an account of his formative years was to clarify the spiritual principles by which he lived and to inspire individuals and movements in their quests for personal and political freedom. The timeless lessons to be derived from the autobiography of this dedicated seeker of truth and brilliant leader continue to resonate wherever freedom is challenged by tyranny.

Moral Foods: The Construction of Nutrition and Health in Modern Asia (Food in Asia and the Pacific) by Angela Ki Che Leung (University of Hawaii Press) Price verified 12 hours ago

Moral Foods: The Construction of Nutrition and Health in Modern Asia investigates how foods came to be established as moral entities, how moral food regimes reveal emerging systems of knowledge and enforcement, and how these developments have contributed to new Asian nutritional knowledge regimes. The collection's focus on cross-cultural and transhistorical comparisons across Asia brings into view a broad spectrum of modern Asia that extends from East Asia, Southeast Asia, to South Asia, as well as into global communities of Western knowledge, practice, and power outside Asia. The first section, "Good Foods," focuses on how food norms and rules have been established in modern Asia. Ideas about good foods and good bodies shift at different moments, in some cases privileging local foods and knowledge systems, and in other cases privileging foreign foods and knowledge systems. The second section, "Bad Foods," focuses on what makes foods bad and even dangerous. Bad foods are not simply unpleasant or undesirable for aesthetic or sensory reasons, but they can hinder the stability and development of persons and societies. Bad foods are symbolically polluting, as in the case of foreign foods that threaten not only traditional foods, but also the stability and strength of the nation and its people. The third section, "Moral Foods," focuses on how themes of good versus bad are embedded in projects to make modern persons, subjects, and states, with specific attention to the ambiguities and malleability of foods and health. The malleability of moral foods provides unique opportunities for understanding Asian societies' dynamic position within larger global flows, connections, and disconnections. Collectively, the chapters raise intriguing questions about how foods and the bodies that consume them have been valued politically, economically, culturally, and morally, and about how those values originated and evolved. Consumers in modern Asia are not simply eating to satisfy ...

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (Pandora's Box Classics) 4.3 Stars (3,952 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

It has been said that Victor Hugo has a street named after him in virtually every town in France. A major reason for the singular celebrity of this most popular and versatile of the great French writers is Les Misérables (1862). In this story of the trials of the peasant Jean Valjean -- a man unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert -- Hugo achieves the sort of rare imaginative resonance that allows a work of art to transcend its genre. Les Misérables is at once a tense thriller that contains one of the most compelling chase scenes in all literature, an epic portrayal of the nineteenth-century French citizenry, and a vital drama -- highly particularized and poetic in its rendition but universal in its implications -- of the redemption of one human being. One of the half-dozen greatest novels of the world. -- Upton Sinclair The greatest of all novels. -- Leo Tolstoy Hugo is unquestionably the most powerful talent that has appeared in France in the nineteenth century. -- Fyodor Dostoyevsky I sobbed and wailed and thought [books] were the greatest things. -- Susan Sontag

Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray (Pandora's Box Classics) 4.1 Stars (454 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

A deliciously satirical attack on a money-mad society, Vanity Fair, which first appeared in 1847, is an immensely moral novel, and an immensely witty one. Called in its subtitle A Novel Without a Hero, Vanity Fair has instead two heroines: the faithful, loyal Amelia Sedley and the beautiful and scheming social climber Becky Sharp. It also engages a huge cast of wonderful supporting characters as the novel spins from Miss Pinkerton's academy for young ladies to affairs of love and war on the Continent to liaisons in the dazzling ballrooms of London. Thackeray's forte is the bon mot and it is amply exercised in a novel filled with memorably wicked lines. Lengthy and leisurely in pace, the novel follows the adventures of Becky and Amelia as their fortunes rise and fall, creating a tale of both picaresque and risqué. Thackery mercilessly skewers his society, especially the upper class, poking fun at their shallow values and pointedly jabbing at their hypocritical morals. His weapons, however, are not fire and brimstone but an unerring eye for the absurd and a genius for observation of the foibles of his age. An enduring classic, this great novel is a brilliant study in duplicity and hypocrisy... and a mirror with which to view our own times. The more I read Thackeray's works the more certain I am that he stands alone -- alone in his sagacity, alone in his truth, alone in his feeling... Thackeray is a Titan. -- Charlotte Brontë Re-reading "Vanity Fair", one realises what a brilliant innovation this was in the English novel. -- V. S. Pritchett Thackeray's harshest criticism of humanity is simply the point where ours commences. His perception of self-interest in every act is the ABC of modern psychology. -- Louis Auchincloss Becky Sharp is one of the best bad women in literature... She is deliciously bad in an era when women were not meant to be. -- Donna Leon I am not conscious of being in any way a disciple of his, unless it constitute discipleship to think him, as I ...

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes (Pandora's Box Classics) 3.5 Stars (210 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading chivalric romances, that he determines to become a knight-errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, his exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray -- he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants -- Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity. Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together, and together they have haunted readers' imaginations for nearly four hundred years. With its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote generally has been recognized as the first modern novel. The book has had enormous influence on a host of writers, from Fielding and Sterne to Flaubert, Dickens, Melville, and Faulkner, who reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible." Only Shakespeare comes close to Cervantes' genius. -- Harold Bloom The highest creation of genius has been achieved by Shakespeare and Cervantes, almost alone. -- Samuel Taylor Coleridge What a monument is this book! How its creative genius, critical, free, and human, soars above its age! -- Thomas Mann 'Don Quixote' looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through his sheer vitality... The parody has become a paragon. -- Vladimir Nabokov A more profound and powerful work than this is not to be met with... The final and greatest utterance of the human mind. -- Fyodor Dostoyevsky Cervantes is the founder of the Modern Era. The novelist need answer to no one but Cervantes. 'Don Quixote' is practically unthinkable as a living being, and yet, in our memory, what character is more alive? -- Milan Kundera

Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy (Pandora's Box Classics) 3.5 Stars (12 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Hardy tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, a beautiful young woman living with her impoverished family in Wessex, the southwestern English county immortalized by Hardy. After the family learns of their connection to the wealthy d'Urbervilles, they send Tess to claim a portion of their fortune. She meets and is seduced by the dissolute Alec d'Urberville and secretly bears a child, Sorrow, who dies in infancy. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer Tess love and salvation, but he rejects her -- on their wedding night -- after learning of her past. Emotionally bereft, financially impoverished, and victimized by the self-righteous rigidity of English social morality, Tess escapes from her vise of passion through a horrible, desperate act. Like the greatest characters in literature, Tess lives beyond the final pages of the book as a permanent citizen of the imagination. -- Irving Howe What a commonplace genius he has; or a genius for the commonplace -- I don't know which. -- D. H. Lawrence The greatest tragic writer among English novelists. -- Virginia Woolf A singular beauty and charm. -- Henry James

Cold War Cosmopolitanism: Period Style in 1950s Korean Cinema by Christina Klein (University of California Press) Price verified 27 minutes ago

South Korea in the 1950s was home to a burgeoning film culture, one of the many "Golden Age cinemas" that flourished in Asia during the postwar years. Cold War Cosmopolitanism offers a transnational cultural history of South Korean film style in this period, focusing on the works of Han Hyung-mo, director of the era's most glamorous and popular women's pictures, including the blockbuster Madame Freedom (1956). Christina Klein provides a unique approach to the study of film style, illuminating how Han's films took shape within a "free world" network of aesthetic and material ties created by the legacies of Japanese colonialism, the construction of US military bases, the waging of the cultural Cold War by the CIA, the forging of regional political alliances, and the import of popular cultures from around the world. Klein combines nuanced readings of Han's sophisticated style with careful attention to key issues of modernity -- such as feminism, cosmopolitanism, and consumerism -- in the first monograph devoted to this major Korean director.
