Hunting, Fishing,

and Camping

100th Anniversary Edition

Leon Leonwood Bean

Updated by his great grandson, Bill Gorman

L

.L.Bean, Inc. has been a trusted source for quality

apparel, reliable outdoor equipment and expert advice

since 1912. To celebrate its hundredth anniversary,

the Freeport, Maine-based company has updated

Hunting, Fishing and Camping, Leon Leonwood Bean’s

no-nonsense guide to enjoying the great outdoors.

Originally published in 1942, this Maine classic offers

instruction on everything from packing a canoe to

hunting birds. The new edition pairs the original text

and nostalgic photographs with twenty-first century

perspective from L.L.’s great-grandson and Outdoor

Channel television host, Bill Gorman.

One of Wall Street Journal’s Top Ten Entrepreneurs

of the 20th century, L.L. Bean was an innovator in the

mail-order catalog industry. Born on October 13,

1872, in Greenwood, Maine, Leon Leonwood Bean

was orphaned shortly after his 12th birthday when

both of his parents died within four days of each other.

At 13, L.L. went on his first hunting trip. Many years

later, when he could not find adequate hunting

footwear to keep his feet dry and warm, L.L. asked a

local cobbler to sew a rugged leather upper to a waterproof

rubber bottom and the Maine Hunting Shoe ®

was born. L.L. became a pioneer of direct marketing

by selling his new boot through the mail and through

his retail store.

By the 1930s, L.L.Bean carried clothing and equipment

for a variety of outdoor pursuits. His original flyer

had become a catalog mailed twice a year and he had

established a million-dollar business.

With the growth of his business, L.L.’s reputation for

selling quality products at a good value became well

known. L.L. ran his company until his death at the age

of 94 on February 5, 1967. He attributed his long life

and good health to the time he spent in the outdoors.

Bill Gorman, great grandson of L.L. Bean, regularly

hunts and fishes all over the world, practicing a way of

life that’s part of his DNA. He proudly supports, promotes,

and shares his heritage with family, friends, colleagues

and now viewers of his television series,

“L.L. Bean Guide To The Outdoors.” He lives on Bailey

Island, Maine.

Paramhansa

Yogananda

A Biography with Personal Reflections

and Reminiscences

Swami Kriyananda

Paramhansa Yogananda’s classic Autobiography of a

Yogi was more about the saints Yogananda met than

about himself—in spite of the fact that Yogananda was

much greater than many he described.

Now, one of Yogananda’s few remaining direct disciples,

Swami Kriyananda, author of award winning book

The New Path, tells the untold story of this great spiritual

master and world teacher: his teenage miracles, his challenges

in coming to America, his national lecture campaigns,

his struggles to fulfill his world-changing mission

amid incomprehension and painful betrayals, and his ultimate

triumphant achievement. Kriyananda’s subtle

grasp of his great guru’s inner nature reveals Yogananda’s

many-sided and extraordinary greatness. Includes

many never-before-published anecdotes.

Swami Kriyananda is a popular and internationally

regarded author, whose works have sold more than 3.5

million copies and have been translated into 28 languages.

He is the founder of Ananda Sangha, a network

of communities and spiritual centers reaching many

thousands of people worldwide. Kriyananda is widely

considered one of the world’s foremost experts on spiritual

practice and development, and, along with the

Dalai Lama, Jane Goodall and others, is a member of the

prestigious Club of Budapest.

The Nine

Dimensions

Unveiling the Laws of Eternity

Ryuho Okawa

In his earlier book Change Your Life, Change the World,

the author presented a unique view of our lives on

earth and introduced the concept of The Cosmic Tree,

through which all people in our world are interconnected.

He spoke of soul mates and of re-incarnation and

introduced the Fourfold Path of Love, Wisdom, Self-Reflection

and Progress; and showed how by applying

these four principles in our daily lives we can embark

upon the road to true enlightenment.

In The Nine Dimensions, the reader will be taken on a

journey into the Other World—that place to which we all

go when our lives end here on earth. The multidimensional

aspects of this Other World are revealed, culminating

in the Ninth Dimension—the realm of the

saviours. This is the realm inhabited by the Messiahs, beings

who only come down to earth every thousand years

or more. Prominent among such beings have been

Moses, Confucius, Gautam Buddha and Jesus Christ all of

whom appeared on earth and laid down principles that

were to become the basis of civilizations.

Never before has this Other World and the nature of

life after death been revealed so clearly and with such authority.

It is through imparting this knowledge to the

world that Ryuho Okawa has already attracted millions

of followers, all of whom were searching for answers to

the very fundamental questions of life on earth, “Where

do we come from” and “Where do we go when we

die”

Ryuho Okawa is the most prominent spiritual leader

in Japan, with over 10 million followers worldwide. His

teachings provide a revolutionary perspective on life and

provide comfort and happiness to those who follow his

teachings. He lives in Tokyo, Japan but travels throughout

the world.

History of the

Karmapas

The Odyssey of the Tibetan Masters

with the Black Crown

Lama Kunsang, Lama Pemo, and Marie Aubèle

Masters of esoteric knowledge and miraculous practices,

the lineage of the Karmapas descends from the great

Indian tantric master Tilopa through a chain that includes

Naropa, Marpa, and Milarepa. The Karmapas are distinguished

by their black crowns, said to have been woven by

dakinis and symbolizing the activity of the buddhas.

In their recounting of the histories of the seventeen

Karmapas, the authors reveal the universal and marvelous

concealed in the everyday world. Their lively account, peppered

with anecdotes, is the most comprehensive in the

West on this subject, with information from Tibetan, Chinese,

Mongolian, French, and English sources.

Lama Kunsang and Lama Pemo (Olivier and Lydia

Brunet) both completed the traditional three-year retreat

under the guidance of the first Kalu Rinpoche and Bokar Rinpoche.

They then spent five years in a monastery in the

Himalayas, working on Kalu Rinpoche’s translation committee.

They currently teach Buddhism and meditation in

Europe and Asia. Marie Aubèle, a student of Tibetan Buddhism

for many years, also lives in France.

Pointing Out the

Dharmakaya

Teachings on the Ninth Karmapa’s Text,

Second Edition

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

At the heart of successful Mahamudra practice is the ability

to understand the nature of mind. The Ninth

Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje (1556–1603), the acknowledged

master of this approach, wrote three definitive texts on Mahamudra;

Pointing Out the Dharmakaya is the shortest and

most practical of the three.

Brilliant explanations by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

make this text vividly relevant for contemporary Western

practitioners. For those committed to ascertaining the mind’s

true nature, there is no more systematic or comprehensive

approach than can be found in this extraordinary set of instructions.

“Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche is among the wisest and

most compassionate Buddhist masters alive today.” —Pema

Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche is an eminent teacher of

the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and a recognized

master of Mahamudra meditation. He is currently tutor to His

Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa. He lives in India.

The Big Dance

The Story of the NCAA Men’s Basketball

Tournament

Barry Wilner and Ken Rappoport

Covered by four networks, allowing every game to be televised,

“March Madness” has become an American phenomenon

as anticipated as the Super Bowl. This is the story

of the tournament, from its beginnings seventy-three years

ago as just an eight-team “bracket” to today’s sixty-eightteam

format. From the “Cinderella” teams like Butler and

Gonzaga, to perennial powerhouses such as UCLA and Kentucky,

to buzzer-beaters, upsets, and dynasties, the story of

one of the most-followed sporting events in history is comprehensively

told here.

Barry Wilner has been a sports writer for the Associated

Press since 1975. He has covered virtually every major sporting

event, including nine Olympics, seven World Cups, nineteen

Super Bowls, the World Series, and Stanley Cup finals.

He has written eighteen books. He lives in Garnerville, NY.

Ken Rappoport covered every major sport out of New York

for thirty years and was the AP’s national hockey writer for

thirteen years. He lives in Old Bridge, NJ.

Why Rattlesnakes

Rattle

...and 250 Other Things You Should Know

Valeri R. Helterbran

Afollow-up to Helterbran’s popular Why Flamingos Are

Pink…and 250 Other Things You Should Know, this entertaining

volume identifies more of the surprising explanations

for the facts, tales, and lore associated with day-to-day living

and the world around us. Organized into seven categories,

this book tells you why birds perched on power lines aren’t

electrocuted; the origins of such expressions as “swan song”

and “willy nilly”; and the science behind such phenomena as

ball lightning, blue glaciers, red tide, and thunder snow.

More than a mere compendium of trivia, this book is a

springboard for learners of all ages.

Valeri R. Helterbran writes a weekly column for the Ligonier

Echo and is Assistant Professor of Professional Studies at

Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She lives in Ligonier, PA.

Christian Criticisms,

Islamic Proofs

Rashid Rida’s Modernist Defence of Islam

Simon A. Wood

Muhammad Rashid Rida is among the most influential

Muslim thinkers of the modern period and yet, until this

book, his writings on religious reform remained unpublished

in English. In this paperback version of the flagship English

edition, esteemed academic Simon A. Wood rights this

wrong by translating and analyzing one of his most important

works, The Criticisms of the Christians and the Arguments

of Islam.

Responding to arguments made in the ninetenth century

that Islam is “irrational” or “inferior to Christianity,” and that

the unification of religious and political power is a “barrier to

progress,” Rida sought to defend Islam and often charged

Christianity of its own brand of irrationality. Wood analyzes

these arguments, showing that Rida’s work cannot be separated

from the period of colonial humiliation in which it originated.

He also takes on the traditional accusation that Rida

was a fundamentalist and argues that he was in fact distinctly

modernist.

Simon A. Wood is Associate Professor of Religious Studies

at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. He is a leading expert

on Rashid Rida.

Insatiable Wives

Women Who Stray and the Men Who

Love Them

David J. Ley

Insatiable Wives explores the history, incidence, and causes

of a nontraditional sexual lifestyle pursued by an increasing

number of couples. It’s called by many names with varying

sexual overtones, and lived in a variety of ways by different

pairs. For those participating in a “hotwife” lifestyle, the wife

is encouraged to pursue sexual encounters with other men,

while the husband rarely seeks sexual contact outside the

marriage. Drawing on case studies and interviews from couples

living the lifestyle throughout the U.S, Ley also discusses

the biological, evolutionary, and psychological explanations

for this behavior. He explains how and why these adventures

are so forbidden, yet exciting, and how this lifestyle affects

their marriages.

David J. Ley, Jr. is a Clinical Psychologist in practice in

Albuquerque, NM. He lives in Albuquerque.

Polyamory in the

21st Century

Love and Intimacy with Multiple Partners

Deborah Anapol

Polyamory means having simultaneous close emotional,

and possibly sexual, relationships with two or more other

individuals with the knowledge and consent of all partners

concerned. The growing practice of polyamory in the U.S.

indicates a significant shift in the way marriage and intimate

relationships have evolved over the last few decades. Anecdotes

and personal experiences allow the reader to develop

a better understanding of polyamory and the people who

practice and enjoy it. Anapol addresses the practical, the

utopian, and the shadow sides of this intriguing, mysterious,

yet often threatening lifestyle. It honestly addresses difficult

issues such as the nature of commitment without exclusivity,

balancing personal needs with loyalty to a partner, evaluating

beliefs about love and relationship, the impact of poly -

amory on children, and the challenges that arise when one

partner wants monogamy and another prefers poly amory.

Without judgement, she explores this increasingly common

practice, and reveals the true nature of a lifestyle that many

do not understand.

Deborah Anapol has taught psychology and human sexuality

at the University of Washington in Seattle and Antioch

University in San Francisco. She divides her time between

San Francisco, CA and Honaunau, HI.

Echoes of Perennial

Wisdom

A New Translation with Selected Letters

Frithjof Schuon, Edited by Patrick Casey

This new edition is a collection of brief passages which

focus on the spiritual life, including such simple and concrete

aspects as the nature of faith and our relationship with

God, the importance of prayer, the meaning of virtue, and

the significance of beauty in our lives. The selections are

taken from Schuon’s unpublished letters and papers as well

as from his books. The free-flowing arrangement of the excerpts

allows the reader to explore the author’s writings in an

almost carefree manner, as if taking a meditative stroll

through a garden. This edition has been re-translated and expanded

to include 19 pages of additional inspiring passages.

Frithjof Schuon (1907-1998) was the twentieth century’s

pre-eminent spokesman for the perennialist school of comparative

religious thought. World-renowned religion scholar

Huston Smith described Schuon as “the most important religious

thinker of our century”. Schuon wrote more than 30

books which have been translated into over a dozen languages

and are respected by academic and religious authorities

alike. Patrick Casey served as an aide and secretary to

Frithjof Schuon for over 20 years. He lives in Bloomington,

IN.

Hollywood Movies

on the Couch

A Psychoanalyst Examines 15 Famous Films

Henry Kellerman, Ph.D

Hollywood Movies on the Couch is the second in a series of

books that analyzes Hollywood movies by Henry Kellerman,

a psychologist/psychoanalyst. Fifteen films are dissected

with analytical skill and with placing the main

character or characters on the couch to cast a different light

on the screen story.

The book is divided into three sections: Solos—where a

main character of the story goes it alone; Duets—where two

characters need to work out their problems together; and

Trios—where there are three in a relationship, one of whom

will be the key person on the couch.

Included in the analysis are:

The Conversation, The Day of the Jackal, When Harry Met

Sally, Husbands and Wives, Pretty Woman, The Way We Were,

Casablanca, The Graduate, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Birds.

A sampling of the questions asked and answered about

these movies include:

• Why does Rick really send Ilsa away with Victor Lazlo

• Is the main character in The Graduate Mrs. Robinson or

Benjamin

The answers will both surprise and entertain the reader.

Dr. Kellerman’s first book on Hollywood movies, published

by Barricade Books (2009), Greedy, Cowardly, and Weak: Hollywood’s

Jewish Stereotypes, examined ethnic and racial

stereotyping generally, while focusing specifically on Jews.

Dr. Kellerman is a senior psychoanalyst having been in

private practice in New York City, as well as having held staff

positions and professorial appointments at several hospitals

and universities, spanning a career of more than 50 years

doing work as an interpreter of personality. He is also an author

and editor of 25 books and many scientific and clinical

papers published in professional journals. He lives and practices

in New York City.

Engaging Students

Through Performance

Assessment

Creating Performance Tasks to

Monitor Student Learning

Tracey Flach

Engaging Students Through Performance Assessment demystifies

the world of assessments and provides a resource

that not only justifies the importance of performance assessments

but guides readers through the development of a performance

assessment that can be used in classrooms,

buildings, or districts.

Performance assessment is a form of testing that requires

students to perform a task rather than select an answer from

a ready-made list. The student solves a math problem or explains

a historical event.

Readers will learn what standards-based performance

assessments are, why they should be included in an assessment

system, how to create them, how to score them, and

how to use the results to improve instruction and student

learning in a classroom, building, or district.

Section One of this book consists of two chapters that lay

the foundation for incorporating standards-based performance

assessments. The ten chapters of Section Two detail the

steps to creating a standards-based performance assessment.

Section Three of the book shows readers how to take a different

look at standards-based performance assessments.

Tracey Flach has been a teacher and administrator and

lives in Skaneateles, NY.

Learning for the Future

Rethinking Schools for the 21st Century

Gabriel Rshaid

Gabriel Rshaid challenges educators to shake themselves

out of their outdated perspectives on teaching, leading,

and learning and to rethink what learning experiences in

schools must be if educators intend to prepare children for

the current knowledge era.

Rshaid challenges educators to create a system that truly

focuses on the talents residing within each learner rather

than trying to model students’ learning to their own likenesses.

Rshaid proposes a paradigm shift from a teacherinitiated,

teacher-driven model to one of a student-centric,

learner-involvement approach.

Learning for the Future is not about an overhaul of schools

and the whole system of education, but about a new paradigm

that not only focuses on content, pedagogy, new skills,

and a new curriculum, but also gives importance to the personal

dimension of teachers and learners. It is a move from

the teacher as the “Sage on the stage” to the teacher as the

“Guide on the side.”

Gabriel Rshaid has taught for 20 years and is currently

Headmaster at St. Andrews’s Scots School in Buenos Aires.

Real-Time Decisions

Educators Using Formative Assessment to

Change Lives NOW!

Kristin R. Anderson

Real-Time Decisions: Educators Using Formative Assessment

to Change Lives NOW! shares the stories of nine schools

and districts and how they used formative assessment to promote

student achievement and generate results.

These authentic case studies take place in urban, suburban,

and rural schools and districts, and serve as models for

those who want to introduce formative assessment into their

setting, learn best practices for refining current initiatives, or

develop system-wide implementation of formative assessment

practices.

Formative assessments are part of instruction designed to

provide crucial feedback for teachers and students. Assessment

results inform the teacher of what has been taught well

and not so well. They inform students of what they have

learned well and not learned so well.

These accounts highlight educators who made the choice

to maximize their instructional minutes. There were no

“silver bullets;” these educators understood the real-time

power of formative assessment and were willing to take the

risk and make changes.

Kristin R. Anderson is the author of Data Teams Success

You Kant Make it Up!

Strange Ideas from History’s Great Philosophers

Gary Hayden

Drawing on the writings of the great philosophers, You

Kant Make it Up! sends the reader on a thrilling, non-stop

tour of their most outrageous and counter-intuitive conclusions.

Augustine said that babies deserve to go to hell. Berkeley

asserted that matter doesn’t exist. Bentham would have

argued that Dan Brown is better than Shakespeare. All these

statements stem from philosophy’s greatest minds. What

were they thinking

Overflowing with compelling arguments for the downright

strange—many of which are hugely influential today—

popular philosopher Gary Hayden shows that just because

something is odd, doesn’t mean that someone hasn’t argued

for it. Spanning ethics, logic, politics, sex and religion, this

unconventional introduction to philosophy will challenge

your assumptions, expand your horizons, infuriate, entertain

and amuse you.

Gary Hayden is a journalist and popular philosopher. He

has a master’s degree in philosophy and has written for The

Times Educational Supplement. He is the author of This Book

Does Not Exist: Adventures in the Paradoxical.

But Dad!

A Survival Guide for Single Fathers of Tween

and Teen Daughters

Gretchen Gross and Patricia Livingston

Teen and tween girls can be mystifying, even to sensitive

and caring parents. But for fathers, the changes girls go

through may take on a new dimension, especially if dad is

single and trying his best to navigate these years with his

daughter. Here, the authors take dads through the ins and

outs of their girls’ adolescent years. Exploring issues of physical

changes, relationships, sex, drugs, alcohol, school, emotional

issues, and other areas, the authors offer dads the

skinny on how to be there for their girls without alienating

them or adding to the strain. No father, single or otherwise,

should be without this field guide to parenting a teen or

tween girl.

Gretchen Gross is a lecturer at the University of Vermont

where she teaches courses on human relationships and sexuality.

She is a licensed clinical social worker with 25 years direct

counseling, private practice, teaching, and workshop

experience. Patricia Livingston is an Advanced Practice Registered

Nurse with more than 25 years of direct clinical practice

at the University of Vermont Student Women’s Health

Service. Both authors reside in South Burlington, VT.

Humanity on a

Tightrope

Thoughts on Empathy, Family, and Big Changes

for a Viable Future

Paul R. Ehrlich and Robert E. Ornstein

More than ever, the world finds itself faced with common

problems that affect most of the planet’s population in

some way: climate change, poverty, escalating violence, international

conflicts, illness. And while an “us v. them” mentality

persists, a growing sense of empathy, of connection,

with those in remote parts of the world has caught hold and

is spreading. Through a careful examination of how humans

must learn to relate to one another to avoid global calamity,

they show how empathy can help to create a sustainable society

of many billions of individuals.

Paul Ehrlich is Bing Professor of Population Studies at

Stanford University. He is the author of The Population Bomb.

He lives in San Francisco, CA. Robert E. Ornstein is a psychologist,

writer, former professor at Stanford University, and

chairman of the Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge.

He lives in Los Altos, CA.

Lasting Value

Open Space Planning and

Preservation Successes

Rick Pruetz

Americans are committing “country-cide,” says Rick

Pruetz, FAICP, converting farms into suburban yards, and

channeling streams that once provided flood control, water

purification, habitats, and recreational opportunities. But

rather than rail against overdevelopment, this book celebrates

communities succeeding in preservation.

For 10 years Pruetz explored communities that excel in

saving their natural environment. In 24 illustrated vignettes,

he captures the character of places from the volcanic range

near downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Minneapolis’s

waterfront Grand Rounds park system, to farmland improbably

preserved on Long Island.

As the longtime city planner of Burbank, California, Pruetz

offers more than an appreciation of these communities. He

brings a planner’s-eye view of the practices behind their

achievements. His detailed reports of creative preservation

solutions mark the trail for planners, commissioners, and citizens

who seek to preserve the green legacy in their own

backyards.

Rick Pruetz, FAICP, is a planning consultant specializing

in open space preservation strategies and former city planner

of Burbank, CA.

Making Community

Design Work

A Guide for Planners

Umut Toker

Since the earliest settlements, people have deliberated the

issues that affect their future together. Making Community

Design Work shows how planners can guide the process toward

effective decision making and beneficial community

design.

This well-crafted book distills decades of community design

experience into a sound conceptual framework of value

to practicing planners as well as planning students. Umut

Toker covers a broad range of planning scales and introduces

field-tested tools for participatory decision making at regional,

city, community, and site-specific levels.

To succeed, any planning project must address both the

physical space and its users. From setting goals to evaluating

results, Making Community Design Work helps planners navigate

the process of creating environments that meet the

needs of the people they serve.

Umut Toker is assistant professor of city and regional

planning in the College of Architecture and Environmental

Design at California Polytechnic State University.

Bediuzzaman Said

Nursi

Wonder of the Age

Ramazan Balci

In the many dimensions of his lifetime of achievement as

well as in his personality and character, Bediüzzaman Said

Nursi (1877–1960) was and, through his continuing influence,

still is an important thinker and writer in the Muslim

world. At a time when science and philosophy were tools of

an aggressive ideology of secularism, Nursi strove for the revival

of an Islamic consciousness. Even though his nonviolent

stance was clear, he was seen as a potential danger and exiled

to different corners of Anatolia. During the exile, he

started writing his magnum opus “Risale-i Nur” (Epistles of

Light), by which he aimed to guide people to the truths of

faith and make them understand the Qur’an correctly. This

book provides a summary of this hard but fruitful life, spent

in the way of faith.

Ramazan Balci, PhD, is an expert in nineteenth century

Ottoman history. He currently works at the Ottoman

Archives in Istanbul.

The Fruits of Worship

Abdullah Aymaz

Emphasizing the character of the religion of Islam as consisting

of faith and practice, this book analyzes thoroughly

the five most important “pillars of Islam” that form the core

of Islamic life, namely the profession of faith, the prayer,

which is the first practical manifestation of faith, fasting, charity,

and pilgrimage to Mecca. Explaining lucidly the necessity

of fulfilling these “pillars” of Islam with the intention of pleasing

God and purely for His sake, the author gives us insights

into the moral, spiritual, psychological, physical, individual,

and social aspects of these five central practices of Islamic

worship in the context of our modern age of globalization.

Abdullah Aymaz is a renowned Islamic scholar and

columnist for Zaman daily. He has authored more than

twenty books, including Mary and The Fruits of Worship.

Early Mexican Houses

A Book of Photographs and Measured Drawings

G. Richard Garrison and George W. Rustay,

Preface by David Gebhard

From 1925 to 1929, two young architectural draftsmen,

G. Richard Garrison and George W. Rustay, set out to

record a select number of examples of the “minor domestic

architecture” of Mexico due to a lack of measured drawings

of rural ranch houses and Monterey-inspired dwellings. The

result is a wonderful collection of houses from the days of

Mexico’s viceroys, elaborately presented in this handsomely

illustrated book. Every aficionado of architecture or home design

will find the patios, window designs, and floor plans a

delight to look at. Over 200 illustrations, including 42 pages

of measured drawings and floor plans, make this a comprehensive

reference guide as well as an elegant coffee table

book

G. Richard Garrison was an architectural photographer

active in New York City during the mid-twentieth century.

Houses of Mexico

Origins and Traditions

Verna Cook Shipway and Warren Shipway

This book delves into the roots of the bold yet elegant

Mexican style, and includes many photographs from

Spain and Portugal reflecting the Moorish influence. In addition

to extensive coverage of the architecture of the houses,

the book shows other spatial and decorative elements, including

iron gates and grilles which give an atmosphere of

seclusion; stairways which seem to grow out of the walls

without any support; and old paintings, combs, ceramics,

and character figures used in festivals, as well as ancient pre-

Columbian figurines.

Verna Cook Shipway attended the Ecole Speciale

d’Architecture in Paris and Columbia University’s School of

Architecture. Warren Shipway received his graduate degree

in engineering from Princeton. The Shipways are the authors

of six other books on Mexican architecture and furnishings.

Spanish Colonial or

Adobe Architecture of

California: 1800-1850

Donald R. Hannaford and Revel Edwards,

Preface by David Gebhard

In California, authentic Spanish colonial houses were built

with local materials for comfort and convenience, with both

construction and ornamentation traditional of Spanish and

New England settlers. This book gives architects, home

builders and historians a chance to view photos, sketches,

and twenty-six full pages of measured drawings of interior

and exterior doorways, paneling, balconies, wrought-iron,

and mantels—most from houses that are no longer standing.

More than eighty years ago, the authors, two young architects,

were appalled by the continuing disappearance of

the old Spanish colonial buildings in California. They spent

four years tracking them down, photographing, sketching,

and making measured drawings of them.

Assisted Reproductive

Technology

A Lawyer’s Guide to Emerging Law and Science,

Second Edition

Charles P. Kindregan, Jr., and Maureen McBrien

As more people turn to assisted reproduction, the legal

issues surrounding it have become increasingly complex.

Beyond representing patients or clinics, numerous legal

problems are arising from the technology’s application. Disputes

about disposition of embryos and gametes in divorce

are perhaps the most common, but assisted reproduction

technology (ART) impacts many other areas of the law, including

personal injury, insurance, criminal law, probate and

estate planning, and government. This updated edition covers

important recent developments, including the approval

by the American Bar Association of the Model Act Governing

Assisted Reproductive Technology and the approval of proposed

new standards governing inheritance by children of

ART in the Uniform Probate Code. Drawing from multiple

legal sources, including the ever-evolving number of court

decisions dealing with various aspects of ART, this book presents

complex information in a direct, balanced and fair manner.

Topics covered include: the right to privacy; the Uniform

Parentage Act; intrauterine insemination and in vitro ferti -

lization; cryopreserved embryos; surrogacy; posthumous

reproduction; reproductive cloning; standards of care, mal -

practice, and liability; and ART contracts and documents.

Includes glossary and further reading lists by chapter.

Charles P. Kindregan, Jr., is a law professor at Suffolk University

School of Law and lives in Boston, MA. Maureen

McBrien is an attorney in Boston, MA.

Patent Obviousness in

the Wake of KSR

International Co. v.

Teleflex Inc.

Edited by Paul M. Rivard and Allen F. Gardner

The U.S. Supreme Court’s 2007 KSR International Co. v.

Teleflex Inc. brought about a significant change in patent

law, specifically in the area of determining whether or not inventions

are non-obvious, thus patentable. This book pre -

sents a timely review of how this issue, since that landmark

decision, has been analyzed, applied, and considered by the

International Trade Commission and the U.S. Patent and

Trademark Office, the district courts of the various regional

circuits, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

This resource is equally helpful to the prosecutor, litigator,

student, and the academic. As cases and decisions are analyzed

from each jurisdiction, one can quickly identify relevant

decisions and trends within particular jurisdictions to prepare

accordingly.

Professional

Responsibility in

Litigation

Brian S. Faughnan, Michael L. Matula,

Douglas R. Richmond

Trial and appellate lawyers face numerous professional responsibility

challenges. These problems often arise suddenly

or in circumstances that are at best difficult. The

chapters of Professional Responsibility in Litigation are organized

by tracing the life of a lawsuit from start to finish. The

book begins with an examination of professional responsibility

issues attending pre-suit investigations and the initiation

of litigation and concludes with a discussion of the professional

responsibilities of appellate lawyers.

“Professional responsibility” is defined broadly to include

not only legal ethics, but also the related subjects of sanctions

and, in some instances, professional liability. The ABA’s

Model Rules of Professional Conduct have served as the standard

for the sake of practicality and uniformity.

Professional responsibility is a dynamic subject, and answers

to thorny questions often pivot on the facts and variations

of state law. Accordingly, the book provides ample

citations to authority—principally cases and ethics opinions—to

assist readers in their own research.

Brian Faughnan practices law in Memphis, TN. Michael

Matula is an associate at a Kansas City, MO, law firm. Douglas

Richmond is the SVP of Global Practices at AON in

Chicago, IL.

Practice of Law

There is no ignoring the impact of science on law today.

testimony, or an academic researching a forensic topic, this

book will help keep you on top of the multitude of new theories,

policies, laws and rules that you face every day.

Real Estate Opinion

Letter Practice

Robert A. Thompson

Since its original publication in 1993, this has been the

standard text for the preparation and negotiation of real

estate opinion letters, a subject which has gained increasing

attention by proliferating state and national bar reports and

the courts. This updated edition addresses extensive developments

in the law and summarizes the “best practices” that

have emerged from the various opinion reports and customary

practice. It provides the most detailed and comprehensive

analysis yet published of the theories and standards of

legal liability and professional responsibility which govern the

preparation and enforcement of all legal opinions, a subject

of increasing concern to lawyers, law firms and their professional

liability insurers. It also identifies the due diligence

process and quality control procedures that should be undertaken

to support the issuance of real estate and business

law opinions alike. Real Estate Opinion Letter Practice includes

the full text of virtually every state and national bar real estate

opinion report, making readily accessible the reports

that articulate the local customary practice that is applicable

to increasingly common interstate secured loan transactions.

All of these reports are contained in a single published volume

in both the text and the accompanying CD-ROM.

Robert A. Thompson is an attorney in San Francisco, CA.

Settlement of Patent

Litigation and Disputes

Improving Decisions and Agreements to Settle

and License

John W. Schlicher

While there are many books on patent litigation and

licensing, very little material is directed to the settlement

process. Analysis has shown that litigation is generally

a less efficient means of resolving patent disputes, as settlement

offers the opportunity to proceed at a quicker pace and

with reduced cost, result in outcomes where each party bears

less risk, reach agreements that achieve results unavailable to

the courts, and likely provides as good or better assessment

of the merits of the underlying dispute. Over the past three

decades, patent litigation has increased in both volume and

importance, making this book, designed to help everyone involved

improve patent settlement outcomes and processes,

an especially valuable resource. It offers a methodical approach

for analyzing the economic forces governing settlement

decisions. The author’s extensive data and analysis

offers patent owners, accused infringers, and their attorneys

a systematic way of dealing with the complexity of the decision

to settle and handling the information needed to make

that decision. Based on economic theory, this quick and inexpensive

method for gathering the right kinds of information

and processing that information helps the parties to

conclude settlements easier, with less cost, and on the most

sensible terms.

Initially serialized in Spirou magazine in 1984, “XIII” was created by Jean Van Hamme, the author behind “Thorgal” and “Largo

Winch”—the latter in comic and book form as well as on the big screen—and William Vance, illustrator of the bestsellers

“Howard Flynn,” “Bruce Hawker,” “Bruno Brazil,” “Bob Morane” and “Marshall Blueberry.”

Jean Van Hamme was born in 1939 in Belgium. His major breakthrough came in 1977, when he created the Viking hero “Thorgal”

for Grzegorz Rosinski. The mix of medieval legends and heroic fantasy soon became a huge success, with major awards following. He

is also the creator of the bestselling series “Largo Winch” and “XIII” (published in English by Cinebook).

Grzegorz Rosinski is one of the most popular artists of comic books in Western Europe. Among his later works are the series

“Chninkel” (with Van Hamme) and a series titled “La complainte des landes perdues” (with Jean Dufaux). In 2001, the Rosinski/Van

Hamme duo published yet another comic book titled Western, based on a Western plot.

The Wright Brothers: Cinebook Recounts Vol. 3

Jean-Pierre Lefèvre-Garros; Illustrated by Marcel Uderzo

This third volume recounts the Wright Brothers, who invented the modern aeroplane. The brothers made the

first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight on 17 December 1903 and, in the two subsequent

years, they developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the

first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made

fixed wing flight possible.

Jean-Pierre Lefèvre-Garros has also collaborated with Marcel Uderzo on a graphic novel chronicling the

small French town of Charenton-le-Pont. The latter has assisted his brother with inking Asterix and has illustrated

over 25 comics (Marcel’s older brother, Albert, is the world renowned Asterix illustrator). He has also

adapted three novels by Jules Verne in graphic novel format.

No Worse Enemy

The Inside Story of Our Chaotic Struggle

for Afghanistan

Ben Anderson

“The most intense fighting footage and the

best anatomy of a battle I’ve ever seen.”

—Spike Jonze (academy-award winning director)

on Ben Anderson’s film Taking on the Taliban

Informed by over three hundred hours of frontline

footage with the US Marines, critically acclaimed documentary

filmmaker Ben Anderson (The Battle for Marjah

—HBO) provides a gripping account of the Afghanistan

war.

The only journalist to have witnessed every major

Afghan military campaign under Obama, Anderson

charts the progress of the President’s counter-insurgency

strategy and shows how it has become a lost cause.

Hamstrung by orders from up-high and contradictory

objectives, frustrated soldiers have been fashioned into

social workers while the Taliban pick them off in record

numbers.

Including interviews with military top brass, this book

reveals the disturbing chasm between official rhetoric

and the reality on the ground.

While Afghan civilians doubt American resolve and

miss the relative peace under the Taliban, the drug-addled

local army is hopelessly unprepared for American

handover.

Enjoying unrivalled respect from the troops (One marine

described him as a “brave motherf***er”), Anderson

offers the most intimate depiction of the war seen in

print. Eating, sleeping, and being shot at with the

troops, he witnessed first-hand IED explosions, American

casualties, civilian deaths and Taliban soldiers that melt

into the local population. The definitive book on the

struggle for Helmand, No Worse Enemy is a bold and

frightening exposé of the longest war in US history.

Ben Anderson has been making documentaries and

writing for over 14 years, producing over forty films for

HBO, the Discovery Channel, PBS and VBS, and the BBC.

He has written and presented five of his own series for

BBC television in the UK. His films have been finalists for

the BAFTA and he has written for Esquire, The Times of

London, Guardian, Mirror, and the Daily Mail. He has appeared

on a variety of national TV shows in the US, including

MSNBC “Morning Joe,” MSNBC “Jansing and

Company,” FOX “America’s Newsroom,” CNN

“Parker/Spitzer” and MSNBC “Hardball with Chris

Matthews.” He lives in the UK.

The United States

Constitution

A Graphic Adaptation

A Round Table Comic TM

Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Thomas Paine,

James Madison

Adapted by Nadja Baer

Illustrated by Nathan Lueth

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme

law of the United States of America. The Constitution

is the framework for the organization of the United

States government and for the relationship of the federal

government with the states, citizens, and all people

within the United States.

The Constitution creates the three branches of the

national government: a legislature, the bicameral Congress;

an executive branch led by the President; and a

judicial branch headed by the Supreme Court. The

Constitution specifies the powers and duties of each

branch. The Constitution reserves all unenumerated

powers to the respective states and the people, thereby

establishing the federal system of government.

The Constitution was adopted on September 17,

1787, by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia,

Pennsylvania, and ratified by conventions in each

U.S. state in the name of “The People”. The Constitution

has been amended twenty-seven times; the first

ten amendments are known as the Bill of Rights.

Originally penned by the founding fathers, this

graphic novel adaptation of the U.S. Constitution was

conceived by the Round Table Comic team, guided by

Dr. Katie Monnin (assistant professor of literacy at the

University of North Florida who specializes in the utilization

of graphic novels in the classroom), and professional

comic script writer Nadja Baer, who has

previously penned five comics for Round Table.

This Flawless Place

Between

Bruno Portier

his inspiring novel will quench anyone’s thirst for

“Tknowledge and spirituality.” —Psychologies Magazine

For all those who loved The Alchemist, Siddhartha, and

Jonathan Livingston Seagull, This Flawless Place Between is a

mesmerizing and uplifting story about death and dying. Interweaving

the key themes of The Tibetan Book of the Dead,

one of the world’s most influential and treasured spiritual

texts, Portier gently explores our deepest questions about

life, love, and death with a refreshing openness and delicacy.

Anne and Evan are vacationing in the Tibetan mountains

when, on an isolated stretch of road, they lose control of

their motorbike. Bike and riders spin over the edge, plunging

into a ravine. Evan’s leg is broken; Anne isn’t moving. A

Tibetan peasant hurries to help them, but while Evan tries

in vain to save Anne’s life, the stranger focuses on guiding

her spirit along the new path it must take to the next one.

So begins a cathartic voyage that carries Anne away from

her broken body and back through the traumas and ecstasies

of her life. Once again, she is a child mourning a

dead pet, a young woman embracing her lover, the radiant

hostess of an art exhibition, a distraught mother hearing

that her young daughter has been critically injured. As she

revisits her past, and the futures of those she will leave behind,

Anne begins to accept not only her death but also her

life—and that what happens next will be up to her.

A gifted successor to the inspirational Paulo Coelho,

Bruno Portier is a writer, photographer, and documentary

maker. He travelled around Asia for 12 years before undertaking

a PhD in social anthropology and writing this, his first

novel.

Golf’s All-Time Firsts,

Mosts, Leasts, and a

Few Nevers

Al Barkow

Here is the ultimate golf reference book, meant to feed

golfers’ insatiable hunger for the statistics and trivia of

their game. It is a vast collection of information both pertinent

and impertinent, based on events of an historical and

record-making nature that have occurred in the game over

its long history. This book answers such burning questions as

who broke the most clubs during a single temper tantrum

(Lefty Stackhouse, 14) to the rationale behind 18 holes (it

was completely arbitrary). From the sublime to the ridiculous,

these fun facts will thoroughly entertain from tee to

green.

Al Barkow is a veteran golf journalist and author of over

a dozen books on the sport. The recipient of the 2005 PGA

Lifetime Achievement Award in journalism, he lives in Albany,

CA.

Road to Ruin

Lessons for America from Europe’s Imploding

Welfare States

Michael Tanner

European countries have long symbolized the model welfare

state and been the envy of American liberals. They

have attempted to provide “cradle to grave” protection

against the vicissitudes of life with publicly funded housing,

health care, pensions, unemployment insurance, sick leave,

child care, and many other benefits. But the economic crisis

that began in Greece and rippled across the continent has

exposed the welfare state’s secret—it has become unsustainable,

stifled growth, and has countries drowning in debt. As

Europe desperately addresses this new reality, the United

States has an opportunity to learn from Europe’s mistakes.

Exploding entitlements—Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security,

and more—are leading us down the road toward European

levels of debt. Our government has grown too large

and too costly. As this book illustrates, we must begin to resolve

this looming crisis or we will suffer the same fate as Europe.

Michael Tanner is director of health and welfare studies

at the Cato Institute, and the author of Leviathan on the Right:

How Big-Government Conservatism Brought Down the Republican

Revolution (Cato Institute, 2007).

The Treasury of

Knowledge: Book Six,

Parts One and Two

Indo-Tibetan Classical Learning and Buddhist

Phenomenology

Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé

Translated and annotated by Gyurme Dorje

Jamgön Kongtrul’s Treasury of Knowledge in ten books is a

unique encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire

range of Buddhist teachings as they were preserved in Tibet.

The first two parts of Book Six concern Indo-Tibetan classical

learning and Buddhist phenomenology. The former analyzes

traditional subjects such as Sanskrit grammar, logic, and

medicine. The principal non-Buddhist philosophical systems

in vogue are then summarized and contrasted with the hierarchical

meditative concentrations and formless absorptions

through which the “summit of cyclic existence” can genuinely

be attained. Part Two examines the phenomenological

structures of Abhidharma—the shared inheritance of all

Buddhist traditions.

Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé (1813–1900), a pivotal

figure in eastern Tibet’s nonsectarian movement, was one of

the most outstanding writers and teachers of his time.

Gyurme Dorje holds a PhD in Tibetan Literature and an

MA in Sanskrit. From 1991 to 1996 he held research fellowships

at London University, where he worked on the Encyclopaedic

Tibetan-English Dictionary. He has written, edited,

translated and contributed to numerous books on Tibetan

culture. He is based in London.

Delivering

Happiness

A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

A Round Table Comic TM

Tony Hsieh, Illustrated by Rob Ten Pas

In his first comic book, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh shares

the different lessons he has learned in business and

life, from starting a worm farm to running a pizza business;

through LinkExchange (acquired by Microsoft for

$265 million), Zappos (acquired by Amazon for over

$1 billion in stock), and more.

Tony shows how a very different kind of corporate

culture is a powerful model for achieving success—and

how by concentrating on the happiness of those

around you, you can dramatically increase your own.

By the author of #1 NYT Bestseller, Delivering Happiness,

and Zappos CEO.

In 1999, at the age of 24, Tony Hsieh (pronounced

Shay) sold LinkExchange, the company he co-founded,

to Microsoft for $265 million. He then joined Zappos.com

as an advisor and investor, and eventually became

CEO, where he helped Zappos.com grow from

almost no sales to over $1 billion in gross merchandise

sales annually, while simultaneously making Fortune

magazine’s annual “Best Companies to Work For” list.

In November 2009, Zappos.com was acquired by

Amazon.com in a deal valued at $1.2 billion on the day

of closing.

Tony’s first book, Delivering Happiness, was published

on June 7, 2010, and outlines his path from starting

a worm farm to life at Zappos.com. Tony shows

how a very different kind of corporate culture is a powerful

model for achieving success and happiness. Delivering

Happiness debuted at #1 on the New York Times

Bestseller list and remained on the list for 27 consecutive

weeks.

He currently lives in Las Vegas and sort of has a cat.

• Co-op available

• $30k marketing budget to focus on national public

Happiness company staffed by more than 20

become dads. The book portrays the

new father as a manager who has a

very special product to develop: his

own baby. Baby Management for Men

is a very practical guide to discovering

the pleasures and challenges of fatherhood.

It’s fun, factual, up to date and

written in a language many men will

appreciate.

a writer and editor in the Netherlands

for more than 20 years. His articles on

travel, business, crime and health issues

have appeared in well-known

Dutch-language magazines such as

Playboy, Reizen, Elle, and Men’s Health.

When he became a father in 2000,

Hanssen set up a website called

has published three books on fatherhood.

Baby Management for Men—an

instant success in the Netherlands—is

the first book to appear in English. He

still works as a journalist and as editor

of the popular fatherhood website and

A Practitioner’s Guide

to Hospital Liability

Philip Hagan, James T. O’Reilly, Jolene Sobotka

The twenty-first century hospital is an extraordinarily complex

place. Sometimes, unexpected things happen, some

fatal, some injurious, and some infectious. Problems such as

these which cause public concerns sometimes result from the

cost-savings pressures and could be avoided with proper

management. However, each hospital’s decision to reduce

staffing or postpone safety device purchases is an economic

choice that will have some longer-term consequences.

A Practitioner’s Guide to Hospital Liability begins with the

foundations of how hospitals are organized, how their duty

of care is established, and what the basics of the cause of action

would be in litigation. Unusual cases of intentional acts,

such as assault and battery are covered, while most of the

book deals with liability claims arising of out accidents and

negligent acts. The elements of shared supervision and

shared responsibility are thoroughly explained and throughout

the book is information for the potential litigator to consider

whether a lawsuit would be likely to succeed before

incurring the costs and difficulties that litigation carries.

Philip Hagan, James T. O’Reilly, and Jolene Sobotka

each reside in Cincinnati, OH, and teach at the University of

Cincinnati.

The Commercial Lease

Formbook

Expert Tools for Drafting and Negotiation,

Second Edition

Edited by Ira Meislik and Dennis M. Horn

An authoritative resource to all aspects of negotiating and

drafting effective commercial property leases, this deskbook

provides an invaluable tool for evaluating the terms of

a lease form and determining whether a transaction is within

the norms. It features an array of state-of-the-art lease forms

that can be quickly tailored for a particular transaction. Chapters

begin with an introduction to the type of lease—office

consider and ways to work with a client when modifying

forms to fit the specific deal. Each lease form is preceded by

a brief description summarizing the context in which it can

be used, to what party the form is oriented, and any special

features. Expert commentary is woven into the text to clarify

and explain why each provision is important from the landlord’s

and/or the tenant’s perspective, and in many instances

it also provides alternative terms to accommodate the opposite

party to which the lease is oriented. This edition features

21 lease forms and six lease-related documents; 14 are in the

book and CD-ROM, while 13 are only on the CD-ROM.

Winning the Acquittal

Tips from a High-Profile Trial

Michael S. Pasano

Criminal defense lawyers recognize they cannot gauge the

pain, panic or despair their clients may feel at trial. So

they try to guide clients through the alien and unfriendly

process of a case by telling it to them straight and giving

them choices. It is, after all, the lawyer’s job to explore what

the best possible resolution of the case is. The best plea, for

instance, or whether to testify or remain silent. And then to

present the advice to the client. The challenge is to neither

understate nor overstate the risks. Because while the defense

counsel will go home at night, the client may risk going to

jail. And so the lawyer’s job is to fight, aggressively and tirelessly,

for the client.

This book provides insider’s tips on winning a case for the

defendant. Based on a trial diary kept by Michael S. Pasano,

it documents the day-to-day developments of the high-profile

2009 trial of Luisa Inclan Bird, an advisor to Puerto Rico’s

former governor. Each step of the trial, from preparation and

jury selection to media coverage, cross-examination, and

closing, is enhanced with sample questions and practical

tools for use in the courtroom. Told in “real time,” the book

is filled with observations and comments about how criminal

defense work is done; what succeeds and does not succeed;

how criminal defense attorneys perform their work; and

what well-planned steps they take toward winning a judgment

for their clients.

Michael Pasano resides in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

The Meat Free

Monday Cookbook

A Full Menu for Every Monday of the Year

Meat Free Monday Campaign

Edited by Annie Rigg, with a Foreword by

Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney

In 2009, Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney launched

the Meat Free Monday campaign as a simple and

straightforward idea to show everyone the value of

eating less meat—and to make it easier for us to do

so. Cutting down the amount of meat in our diet has

a huge range of environmental and personal benefits,

including significantly reducing the greenhouse gas

emissions associated with livestock production, boosting

our health by increasing the amount of fruit and

vegetables in our diet, and helping us save money by

offering substitutes for expensive meat and fish.

Often, though, our vegetarian repertoire is limited,

with the result that our enthusiasm to continue with

a meat-free day wanes when we are confronted with

yet again eating the same dish. With menus for each

of the 52 weeks of the year—two main recipes, plus

four other ideas for each meal of the day—The Meat

Free Monday Cookbook addresses this problem and is

aimed at everyone who cares about the environment,

is happy to eat vegetarian one day a week, but needs

inspiration and guidance to do so. Packed with

vibrant spring soups, inventive summer salads, appetizing

fall casseroles and comforting winter stews, the

recipes include such enticing dishes as Grilled Figs

with Ricotta, Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes, Sicilian Cauliflower

Pasta, Mexican Cornbread, Pilau Rice with

Cashews, French Bean, Roquefort and Walnut Salad,

Watermelon Granita, Hot Mozzarella Sandwich,

Roasted Halloumi Wrap and Onion and Walnut

Muffins, and cover everything from alternatives to the

ubiquitous ham sandwich in your packed lunch and

the traditional cooked breakfast to satisfying snacks

for when hunger strikes. With contributions from

Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney, as well as celebrity

and chef supporters of the campaign such as Skye

Gyngell, Giorgio Locatelli, Yotam Ottellenghi, Tom

Aikens, Kevin Spacey, Pink, Twiggy, Woody Harrelson,

Vivienne Westwood and Pamela Anderson, The Meat

Free Monday Cookbook is guaranteed to tempt even

the most confirmed carnivore.

The Meat Free Monday Campaign was launched

by Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney in 2009 and its

message is One Day a Week Can Make a World of Difference.

The campaign aims to encourage everyone

to do their bit to help protect our planet by demonstrating

that by giving up meat for one day each week

you can save money, reduce your environmental

impact and live a healthier life.

Death in Ecstasy

Inspector Roderick Alleyn #4

Ngaio Marsh

Ahhh, prussic acid, that hallmark of classic Golden Age

mysteries. You’d think that one whiff of the telltale aroma

of bitter almonds, and a reasonably clever girl would think

“Perhaps I should not drink this.” But we’ll never know what

lovely Cara Quayne was thinking as she raised the goblet to

her lips: With a single sip she transported herself to the Hereafter.

At least, that’s the romantic view. But Inspector Alleyn

has little interest in romance; he’s investigating a death by

cyanide poisoning. Cara was a deeply spiritual young

woman, a novice with the House of the Sacred Flame (weird

religious cults, another staple of the Golden Age). It seems,

however, that somebody was operating from very un-spiritual

motivations.

“The brilliant Ngaio Marsh ranks with Agatha Christie

and Dorothy Sayers” —Times Literary Supplement

Ngaio Marsh (1895-1982) was one of the celebrated

queens of the Golden Age of detective fiction. The Inspector

Alleyn series was televised to great acclaim in both the U.K.

and U.S.

• Co-op available

Vintage Murder

Inspector Roderick Alleyn #5

Ngaio Marsh

Inspector Roderick Alleyn has to date confined his investigations

to England, but Vintage Murder finds him journeying

to New Zealand (Ngaio Marsh’s homeland). His doctor has

ordered a long rest—lucky thing, since the ocean voyage is

anything but short. However, Alleyn’s trip is enlivened by

members of the Carolyn Dacres English Comedy Company,

a theatrical troupe also making its way south.

Happily, several of the actors also join Alleyn on his train

trip across South Island. Their operatic intrigues offer an

amusing diversion until, unexpectedly, they turn deadly. And

Alleyn learns—not for the last time—that while he may be

able to leave his badge back in Blighty, he’s still a policeman,

even on the other side of the world.

“Among the crime queens, Ngaio Marsh stands out as an

Empress” —The Sun

Ngaio Marsh (1895-1982) was one of the celebrated

queens of the Golden Age of detective fiction. The Inspector

Alleyn series was televised to great acclaim in both the U.K.

and U.S.

Somewhere in the

House

Henry Gamadge #10

Elizabeth Daly

The perfect locked-room mystery, by Agatha Christie’s

favorite writer.

The insular, unpleasant Clayborn clan has been waiting

for 25 years to divvy up Grandmama’s fortune, locked up by

her will and in a small room in the Clayborn mansion. Tomorrow,

at last, The Room is to be opened, and the Clayborns

can’t wait to get their sticky fingers on the old lady’s

reportedly priceless button collection.

Harriet Clayborn, however, has not trusted her family for

some time, ever since they made her divorce her husband

when he was accused of murder. She asks Henry Gammadge

to witness the Opening of The Room, just to make sure

there’s no funny business. Gammadge agrees, and it’s a

good thing this masterful sleuth is on hand: the Room has

been hiding something grislier than buttons.

“An exciting novel and an excellent mystery” —San Jose

News

Elizabeth Daly (1878-1967) published her first novel at

62, and went on to win an Edgar for her series featuring

Henry Gamadge. Like her hero, Daly was a New Yorker.

The Knucklebook

Everything You Need to Know about Baseball’s

Strangest Pitch—the Knuckleball

Dave Clark

This little book will teach you all you need to know about

the most frustrating yet entertaining pitch in baseball: the

knuckleball. It makes batters look foolish when it works; it

embarrasses pitchers when it doesn’t...or if it works too well.

It humiliates catchers and umpires. It confounds spectators.

Dave Clark has spent most of a lifetime studying the knuckleball,

talking to the major league pitchers who have thrown

it, and throwing a few of his own. His book explains the

strange workings of the pitch and how it’s used, no matter

what your interest—whether you’re a pitcher, batter, catcher,

umpire, coach, spectator, or parent of any of the above.

Dave Clark is a professional photographer and the

world’s greatest collector of knuckleball lore. He lives in Barre,

Massachusetts.

Why Don’t Spiders

Stick to Their Webs

And 317 Other Everyday Mysteries of Science

Robert Matthews

Why can’t we tickle ourselves

When can you drive through the end of a rainbow

What would happen if you fell into a black hole

Is it ever possible to hurt your brain by thinking too much

Most of the great discoveries in science begin with a

question. In this bestselling tour of answers both cosmic

and quotidian, award-winning columnist and researcher

Robert Matthews tackles an array of baffling

conundrums, delivering entertaining and enlightening answers

from the worlds of biology, physics, meteorology,

neuroscience, and much more. From the curious mathematics

of odd socks to the real “string theory” mystery—

how does string acquire all those unwanted

knots—Matthews reveals, once and for all, that no question

is ever too trivial.

Robert Matthews is a visiting lecturer in science at

Aston University in Birmingham, England. He has published

pioneering research in fields ranging from code-breaking to

predicting coincidences, and won the internationally

renowned Ig Nobel Prize in Physics for his studies of Murphy’s

Law, including the reason why toast so often lands

butter-side down. An award-winning science writer, he has

contributed to many newspapers and magazines worldwide,

and is currently science consultant for Focus magazine,

a flagship BBC publication. His book 25 Big Ideas: The

Science that’s Changing our World (978-1-85168-391-8) is

The Battle Over

Health Care

What Obama’s Reform Means

for America’s Future

Rosemary Gibson and Janardan P. Singh

As the most substantial health care reform in almost half a

century, President Obama’s health care overhaul was as

historic as it was divisive. In its aftermath, the debate continues.

Drawing on decades of experience in health care policy,

health care delivery reform, and economics, Rosemary Gibson

and Janardan P. Singh provide a non-partisan analysis of

the reform and what it means for America and its future.

They dissect how the deals were made between the Obama

administration and the health care industry. The book traces

the highlights of the deals with each of the key industry players—the

health insurance companies, drug makers, hospitals,

and doctors—and assess what was won and what was

lost when the spoils were divided on the political battlefield.

Rosemary Gibson is senior program officer at the Robert

Wood Johnson Foundation. Janardan P. Singh is an economist

at the World Bank. Both live in Arlington, VA.

Salads: Beyond

the Bowl

Extraordinary Recipes for

Everyday Eating

Mindy Fox

Mindy Fox believes in eating at least one salad

a day, whether at brunch, lunch, or dinner.

She checks out what green, vegetable, or grain

she has on hand and thinks about what to pair it

with—whether fruit, veg or protein. She uses

what she calls her “salad lens,” and looks through

it at every meal. Not only is it a healthier way to

eat, making sure you are getting your 5 servings

of vegetables a day, as well as your fiber and protein,

but it makes salad the center of your plate,

rather than a heaping sandwich or large piece of

meat. This is truly how Mindy eats and she’s done

all the work for you in Salads: Beyond the Bowl.

The first chapter focuses on small salads that can

be eaten as a starter or snack or paired together

for a larger meal, like Fresh Fig, Shaved Celery,

and Prosciutto or Green Melon, Cubanelle Peppers,

Basil, and Ricotta Salata. Chapter 2 consists

of the leafy salads one would expect with a bowlful

of greens like Red Leaf Lettuce with Spiced

Popcorn, Drunken Cherries and Goat Gouda.

Chapter 3 is Mindy’s modernized take on the

classic egg, potato and pasta salads: among

them are a Shrimp Omelette over Vietnamese

Salad, Potato Salad with Melted Leeks and Blue

Cheese, and Muffaletta Pasta Salad. Chapter 4

uses Grains, Beans and Legumes as its base, and

Chapters 5-7 have a “bit of” protein, as in

Roasted Cod with Warm Orange and Shallot

Salad, Creamy Cole Slaw and Fried Chicken

Salad, and Pastrami and Rye Panzanella. This is

one salad book that won’t leave you hungry for

more!

Mindy Fox is the food editor of La Cucina Italiana

magazine, a cookbook author, food writer

and teacher. Formerly on staff at Saveur, she has

also written for Food & Wine, Every Day with

Rachael Ray, Prevention, Time Out New York and

Edible Manhattan magazines. She also has a

Backdoor Channels

The Price of Peace

Leon H. Charney

The term “back door channels” is a term that has been

in use since the early 1950s by government and foreign

policy officials as well as intelligence operatives. It

refers to alternative methods for official governmental,

diplomatic entities and covert intelligence agents to

communicate across borders.

Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace is the story of

the interplay between the official government channels

and those who acted largely behind the scenes of the

peace process between Egypt and Israel. This process

began in 1979 yet remains unsettled to this day.

Some of these men, heroes, really: Jimmy Carter,

Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat, were driven by

deeply held faith and conviction.

Others were military hawks who, only in their later

years, came to see peace as the only viable option. Still

others saw peace and stability in terms of business and

prosperity.

Tracing the confluence of facts that led to the Camp

David Accords and the ensuing peace treaty of 1979,

this book examines not only the powerful personalities

that drove the peace process, but also the secret liaisons,

communications, and third-party world leaders who

played important yet seldom understood roles in forging

that peace agreement.

Leon Charney holds a BA and BHL from Yeshiva University

and a JD from Brooklyn Law School. He is a former

U.S. presidential advisor, and worked closely with

Jimmy Carter to help broker the Israel-Egyptian peace

agreement. He is an author of four books, including the

Mystery of the Kaddish and Battle of the Two Talmuds and

hosts “The Charney Report”, a weekly national television

show. He is the recipient of numerous awards and holds

many honorary doctorates, including ones from Yeshiva

University and the University of Haifa. One of Charney’s

hobbies, cantorial singing, has taken him on performances

around the world. Mr. Charney lives in New York

City.

Becoming a

True Champion

Achieving Athletic Excellence from the Inside Out

Kirk Mango with Daveda Lamont

Foreword by Nadia Comaneci

Today, aspiring athletes have to work harder and be more

dedicated than athletes of previous generations who did

not have to contend with the messages of a popular culture

that promotes winning at all costs and implicitly condones

“shortcuts” to winning. Whether off the field antics or on the

field cheating through the use of illegal performance-enhancing

drugs typify an athlete’s lack of personal values, the bad

behavior by many in a broad range of sports is hard to escape.

Becoming a True Champion fills a critical need by speaking

directly to today’s aspiring athletes about these crucial, controversial

issues and the personal choices they face. Through

relevant examples, inspiring stories, and a personalized approach,

the book shows athletes how to avoid the many pitfalls,

and overcome the inevitable obstacles, so common in

today’s sports culture.

Kirk Mango was a collegiate champion gymnast (National

Champion, three-time All American, and three-time

Hall of Fame Inductee.) He has been a high school educator

for the past 30 years. He lives in Naperville, IL. Daveda Lamont

is an independent author and developmental editor. She

lives in Yonkers, NY.

Protecting Your Internet

Identity

Are You Naked Online

Theodore Claypoole and Theresa M. Payton

Today people have an offline reputation and image, but

are increasingly creating one or more online personas.

Their online image is having an impact on them in many

ways. Employers are hiring and firing based on people’s online

activities. Criminals are using online identities to abuse or

steal from victims. Cyberbullies are taking advantage of those

who reveal themselves as vulnerable on grieving or eating

disorder sites. Schools are denying admission based on adolescent

behaviors broadcast online in social networking sites

or media sharing sites such as YouTube. Protecting Your Internet

Identity helps readers understand the implications of their

online personas, how they may be putting themselves at risk,

and how to take charge of this important new aspect of their

lives for career and personal success. In ten simple steps covered

in ten chapters, people can analyze their online image,

determine who they want to be online, and turn their online

reputation around.

Theodore Claypoole is an attorney. He is leader of the

Munich 1972

Tragedy, Terror, and Triumph at the

Olympic Games

David Clay Large

Munich 1972 tells the compelling story of the most

controversial of all modern Olympiads within the

turbulent context of simmering global tensions: the ongoing

Cold War, political posturing between the two

Germanys, seemingly endless warfare in Indochina, lingering

recriminations surrounding decolonization in

Africa, and, of course, the cauldron of religious and ethnic

hatred known euphemistically as the “Middle East

Conflict.” It was, of course, this last conflict that spilled

over so tragically into the Munich festival, which will forever

be remembered for the murder of eleven Israeli

Olympians by Palestinian terrorists: a grisly episode that

ruined a much-anticipated coming-out party for newly

democratic West Germany and for “new Munich” itself,

the erstwhile “capital” of Hitler’s Nazi movement. What

began as a putatively “merry” celebration of peaceful

play and beery bonhomie turned into a tragic milestone

in the signature horror of our times: political and religious

terror.

Crucial as the “Munich Massacre” is to the story of

the ‘72 Games, however, it is by no means the only story.

There was plenty of high drama in the athletic competitions

as well, which were themselves hardly free of unsportsmanlike

acrimony. Controversies over biased

judging, commercialization, political posturing, and

(above all) doping helped to make this Olympic festival

very much a mirror of its contentious times.

Drawing on a wealth of contemporaneous sources,

including recently opened files in the German and

Olympic archives, eminent historian David Clay Large

offers a comprehensive exploration of the 1972 festival.

He interweaves the political drama surrounding the

Games with the athletic spectacle in the arena of play.

Writing with flair and an eye for telling detail, Large

brings to life the stories of the indelible characters who

epitomized the Games, ranging from the city itself to the

visionaries who brought the Games to Munich against all

odds to the athletes, obscure and famous alike. With the

Olympic movement in constant danger of terrorist disruption,

and with the fortieth anniversary of the 1972

tragedy upon us in 2012, the Munich story is more

timely than ever.

David Clay Large is professor of history at Montana

State University. He divides his time between San Franciso,

CA and Bozeman, MT.

Estate Planning for the

Blended Family

L. Paul Hood, Jr.

Every family is different, and blended families—defined as

those with children from previous marriages or couplings

included—can be even more difficult to plan for. When dealing

with complicated family situations, cookie-cutter estate

plans just don’t work!

However, planning the future of your family’s estate is

crucial for the emotional and financial well-being and stability

of all family members, and having everything in order will

bring invaluable peace of mind. Estate Planning for the

Blended Family outlines estate planning specifically for

blended families, addressing the special concerns and issues

that may arise from the process in this very special set of circumstances.

With a blended family himself, L. Paul Hood Jr. practiced

estate planning law for 20 years before becoming a full-time

speaker and writer on estate planning. He received his undergraduate

and law degrees from Louisiana State University,

taught at University of New Orleans, and now teaches online

for Northeastern University. L. Paul Hood Jr. also co-authored

A Reviewer’s Handbook to Business Valuation (Wiley, Spring

2011).

Sweet Home

Delectable Desserts for Celebrating,

Preserving, and Creating Your Own

Family History

Rebecca Miller Ffrench

In her time as a Contributing Writer for Cookie

magazine and working for Martha Stewart,

Rebecca Miller Ffrench has become a crack recipe

writer. Her desserts are particularly tempting, and

if you ask her why, she’d say it’s because she

comes from a long line of serious home bakers.

That’s because Rebecca and her mother and

grandmother before her firmly believe that

dessert makes a house into a home. Food really IS

love and the scent of something warm and comforting

says that someone who loves you is waiting

inside—like nothing else can. In her first

cookbook, Rebecca brings out more than 75 of

her family’s favorite “I’m home!” treats, from an

ooey-gooey “Go-To” Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

to a moist, dense Coconut Bunny Cake that Rebecca’s

dad perfected to please his granddaughters.

Any recipe you pick from her list sounds lush

and tempting: Love Struck Sour Cherry Pie, Norwegian

Custard Buns, Spiced Apple Cider

Doughnuts, No-Fail Caramel Sauce, Criss-Cross

Coffeecake—the list, organized by Preserving,

Celebrating, Giving, and Creating—goes deliciously

on and on. Add to it the warm and winning

headnotes on family and baking, tips to

make each dish a success, and Sweet Home is a

recipe for a dessert classic—the perfect Mother’s

Day gift and go-to guide for families wanting to

preserve their history through recipes and food.

An avid home baker and journalist for more

than two decades, Rebecca Miller Ffrench has

been producing events and kids parties since

1997. A former Contributing Writer for Condé

Nast’s Cookie, her children’s how-to party stories

appeared in the pages of the magazine for four

years. She also appears regularly on Good Morning

America, NY1, New York’s Channel 4 NBC affiliate,

and WB 11’s morning shows as a party

expert and styles party tables and segments for

NBC’s Today Show and Regis and Kelly Live!. She

is currently writing for Better Homes & Gardens

and as a regular blogger for Johnson & Johnson’s

Planning Los Angeles

Edited by David C. Sloane

Los Angeles isn’t planned; it just happens. Right Not so

fast! Despite the city’s reputation for spontaneous evolution,

a deliberate planning process shapes the way Los Angeles

looks and lives. Editor David C. Sloane, a planning

professor at the University of Southern California, has

Clash of Crowns

William the Conqueror, Richard Lionheart,

and Eleanor of Aquitaine—A Story of

Bloodshed, Betrayal, and Revenge

Mary McAuliffe

Conflict between England and France was a fact of life

for centuries, but few realize that its origins date

from the time of the Vikings, when a Norse chieftain

named Rollo established himself and his progeny in Normandy.

In this compelling and entertaining history, Mary

McAuliffe takes the reader back to those dark and turbulent

times when Rollo’s descendants, the dukes of Normandy,

asserted their dominance over the weak Frankish

monarchy—a dominance that became especially threatening

after Duke William conquered England in 1066,

giving him a royal crown.

Despite this crown, William the Conqueror and his

royal successors remained dukes of Normandy, with feudal

obligations to their overlord, the king of France. This

naturally fostered an ongoing hostility between the

French and English crowns that, as McAuliffe convincingly

shows, became ever more explosive as the strength

and territorial holdings of the English monarchs grew.

Conflict erupted regularly over the years, and Eleanor of

Aquitaine’s desertion of one camp for the other only

added fuel to the long-simmering feud.

McAuliffe takes the reader back to this dramatic era,

providing the fascinating background and context for

this “clash of crowns.” She offers colorful insights into

Richard Lionheart and Eleanor of Aquitaine as well as

lesser-known French and English monarchs, especially

Philip II of France. Philip (later called Philip Augustus)

proved a determined opponent of Richard Lionheart,

and their cut-throat rivalry not only created fatal divisions

within the Third Crusade, but also culminated in an

explosive faceoff at Richard’s newly built Château-Gaillard,

the seemingly impregnable gateway to empire. The

outcome would shape the course of English and French

history for centuries to come.

Mary McAuliffe received a PhD in history from the

University of Maryland and has taught at several universities

and lectured at the Smithsonian Institution. For

many years a regular contributor to Paris Notes, she has

traveled extensively in France and is the author of Dawn

of the Belle Epoque: The Paris of Monet, Zola, Bernhardt,

Eiffel, Debussy, Clemenceau, and Their Friends. She lives in

New York City.

Hopelessly Divided

The New Crisis in American Politics and

What it Means for 2012 and Beyond

Douglas E. Schoen

Just in time for the 2012 election, Douglas E. Schoen, one

of America’s preeminent political pundits, analyzes the

growing chasm between the political class—politicians, lobbyists,

fundraisers, consultants—and the American Mainstream,

frustrated with government’s inability to address the

major issues effecting their lives. This gap has given rise to

populist movements on the right and the left and driven our

two-party system to the brink of possible collapse—in ways

that have never been fully discussed or articulated.

Douglas E. Schoen is a prominent Democratic political

consultant, pundit, and author. His political clients have included

such luminaries as Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Evan

Bayh, and Michael Bloomberg. He is a Fox News contributor

and appears regularly on Hannity. He is also a frequent contributor

to key political websites including the Daily Beast,

Huffington Post, and Real Clear Politics. He lives in New York

The Seven-Point

Mind Training

A Tibetan Method for Cultivating

Mind and Heart

B. Alan Wallace

The central focus of The Seven-Point Mind Training is the

transformation from self-centered solitude to compassion

for others. Mind training is designed to shift our attitudes so

that our minds become pure wellsprings of joy instead of

murky pools of problems, anxieties, fleeting pleasures, frustrations,

hopes, and fears. It does not require that we withdraw

into seclusion, but that we reexamine all of our

relationships—to family, friends, enemies, and strangers—

and gradually transform our responses to whatever life

throws our way.

B. Alan Wallace trained for many years as a monk in Buddhist

monasteries in India and Switzerland. He has taught

Buddhist theory and practice since 1976 and has served as

interpreter for numerous Tibetan scholars and contemplatives,

including H.H. the Dalai Lama. He has published many

books on Tibetan Buddhism, including Buddhism with an

Attitude and The Four Immeasurables. He currently lives in

Santa Barbara, California.

Force Decisions—

A Citizen’s Guide

Understanding How Police Determine

Appropriate Use of Force

Rory Miller

In a free and peaceful society where so many have been

taught that all violence is wrong, citizens are often confused

and dismayed when officers use force, even when

the force is perfectly lawful and justified.

This book allows you to “take” a basic USE OF FORCE

class just as if you were a rookie at the police academy.

SECTION 1. TRAINING. I explain policy and laws that

officers are taught. We examine use of force, how to define

a threat, the difference between excessive force and

unnecessary force.

SECTION 2. CHECKS AND BALANCES. Explains how

an officer’s decisions are examined if suspected of being

bad decisions.

SECTION 3. EXPERIENCE. We will explore how officers

see the world that they live in. Somewhere in the

fog between training and experience, the officer has to

make a decision. Sometimes decisions will be made in a

fraction of a second and on partial information. Sometimes

a decision will change the lives of everyone involved

forever.

SECTION 4. ABOUT YOU. What you should have

learned; why community action fails and what can really

be done; and how you should behave when faced by an

officer. Until now, I have tried to put you in the headspace

of an officer giving you an overview of their training

and a taste of their experiences. Now I will try to let

you feel like a suspect. That’s a lot of mind bending for

one book. Get plenty of sleep and drink lots of water.

Any civilian, law enforcement officer or martial artist

interested in self-defense or any person who desires a

deeper understanding of this thing called violence needs

to read this book.

Rory Miller, former Sergeant, has been studying martial

arts since 1981. He’s a best-selling writer and a veteran

corrections officer. He’s taught and designed

courses on Use of Force Policy and Decision Making; Police

Defensive Tactics; Confrontational Simulations; and

has led and trained his former agency’s Corrections Tactical

Team, and recently taught how to run a modern,

safe and secure prison at the Iraqi Corrections Systems,

Iraq. Rory Miller resides near Portland, OR.

Judith Turner:

Seeing Ambiguity

Photographs of Architecture

Foreword by Robert Elwall

Introduction by Joseph Rosa

In 1980 the book Judith Turner Photographs

Five Architects was internationally

recognized by architects who

admired and valued Turner’s unique

way of seeing and photographing architecture.

This new book contains

photographs taken between 1974 and

2009 of buildings designed by 17 wellknown

architects including: Peter

Eisenman, Louis Kahn, Fumihiko Maki,

Norman Foster, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le

Corbusier, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid,

Alvar Aalto, Shigeru Ban and Renzo

Piano. From the beginning of her career,

Turner has used architecture as

subject matter. Through her eyes, the

subject is decomposed and recreated,

assuming a new meaning. The photographs

are quiet, yet dynamic, beautiful

framed compositions. Architcts

have commented that she exposes elements

of their work they never imagined

existed.

Judith Turner resides in New York

City where she began taking photographs

in 1972. She has had solo exhibitions

in various cities in the United

States, Europe, South America, Israel,

and Japan. Turner has been awarded

several grants and fellowships. She received

an Honor Award from The

American Institute of Architects in

1994 and a Stars of Design Award in

Photography from The Design Center

of New York in 2007.

Parks and Gardens

in Greater Paris

Jacqueline Widmar Stewart

For over 350 years Parisians have designed

and preserved phenomenal

public outdoor spaces. In this book

Jacqueline Widmar Stewart follows the

fine-spun threads of the parklands tapestry

in greater Paris. Identification of

various hallmarks of premiere parkbuilding

eras imbues individual parks

with multi-dimensional qualities and

allows readers to experience these

grand green places in the way Parisians

do. Many marvels beckon all who

enter Paris’ magical spheres including

a several-kilometer-long landscaped

promenade above busy streets, the

Parc de la Villette, a midisland allée in

the Seine, clouds of fragrance from

rose-descendants of Josephine Bonaparte’s

original collection, not one, but

two gardens of the quintessential

sculptor, Auguste Rodin.

Jacqueline Widmar Stewart

gained her Master of Arts degree at the

University of Michigan and studied law

at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.

She is author of the book The

Glaciers’ Treasure Trove: A Field Guide to

the Lake Michigan Riviera.

Paul Stohrer,

1909–1975

Architekt in der Zeit des

Wirtschaftswunders

Ursula Grammel

From the 1950s to the 1970s Paul

Stohrer was among the most eminent

and successful architects of

Stuttgart (Germany). He took advantage

of rebuilding phase after 1945 for

his professional development, and the

boost given by the years of the economic

miracle led to a peak in his architectural

creativity. He built theatres

and cinemas, commercial, office and

factory buildings and he created exclusive

family homes for clients on the

scene at the time. Stohrer follows his

own pathways with his stylistic and formal

repertoire, but the influence of Le

Corbusier, and also Oscar Niemeyer

and others can be clearly discerned. As

professor of design and interior design

at the Staatsbauschule in Stuttgart he

inspired generations of students with

his unconventional teaching approach.

Ursula Grammel worked for Paul

Stohrer as a trainee assistant. After advanced

studies in urban development

she was teaching at the Städtebauinstitut

of the Stuttgart University.

Megacatastrophes!

Nine Strange Ways the World Could End

David Darling & Dirk Schulze-Makuch

Will the world never end With centuries of failed

predictions and the continual absence of a nuclear

holocaust, it sometimes feels like the Day of Reckoning

has been permanently delayed. Well, now you can celebrate

the year of the Mayan Apocalypse in style with

David Darling and Dr. Dirk Schulze-Makuch, as they

delve into the amazing science behind the strangest

ways the world could end.

First up there’s man-made disasters—and before you

start yawning we’re not talking greenhouses and wind

farms. Think big. Think Swiss scientists accidentally tearing

a hole through time. Think a frenzy of demented

nanobots, hardwired to nibble us down to a gray gooey

mess. Think MRSA gone mad, think the Internet making

slaves of us all, think The Matrix but real.

But it’s not just human technology that could spell

the end. Yellowstone, the super-volcano in our own

backyard, is overdue for its cataclysmic eruption that

would not only annihilate the Midwest but roll out

enough ash to plunge the world into darkness. An asteroid

the size of Manhattan slamming into Earth would release

the energy of a billion Hiroshimas. The last puff of

a dying star thousands of light-years away would douse

us in enough gamma radiation to sterilise the planet.

Oh, and don’t forget: there’s always the risk of an alien

invasion.

Ranking each potential disaster with their

“Catastrophometer,” David and Dirk provide the best

guide to the worst that could happen, and explore what

we could do to avert potential disaster. So sit down, face

the inevitable, and prepare to discover the awesome science

behind our inevitable doom.

David Darling is an astronomer, science writer and

bestselling author. Dr. Dirk Schulze-Makuch is an Associate

Professor in Astrobiology at Washington State University,

whose research has been published in everything

from academic journals to The New Scientist.

Reflections on

the Qur’an

Commentaries on Selected Verses

Fethullah Gulen

The Qur’an is believed by Muslims to be the final word of

God revealed to humanity through Prophet Muhammad

speaking to all humans for all times. This nature of Islam’s

holy book brings along a continuous study of it so that its injunctions

are reinterpreted according to constantly changing

times and conditions of our world. This book presents such

interpretations from a respected Muslim scholar who explains

verses for the modern age. Gülen is well-informed of

the classical exegetical discipline; nevertheless in this book he

keeps his explanations short and to the point, not to tire

away readers. The book does not cover all the verses of the

Qur’an, but selected ones, those relate most to the human

existence on earth, life after death, and stories revealed in the

holy book.

M. Fethullah Gulen is a writer, a poet, and a public

speaker on issues related to Islam. He is the author of Toward

a Global Civilization of Love and Tolerance, and The Messenger

of God. He lives in Saylorsburg, PA.

Canvas of the Soul

Mystic Poems from the Heartland of Arabia

Nimah Nawwab

From the heartland of Islam arise poems of fiery love and

peace, composed by a modern-day female poet descended

from a long line of Meccan (from Mecca) scholars.

Reflecting the pulsing, indivisible bridge of the works of great

Sufi mystics and poets to modern times, these spiritual pieces

recall the beloved works of Rabi‘ah Al ‘Adawiyyah, Rumi and

Hafiz.

From the land of Arabia where Sufism has been long

cloaked in mystery, despite its early roots stemming in the

very City of the Prophet, this volume serves to transcend

time through filling the existing gap between the early beginnings

and the little-known Sufi traditions of current-day

puritanical Arabia.

Drawing on a rich religious legacy and led by the Sufi

tradition seeking Unity, the poems cover aspects related to

spirituality and present-day challenges. The inspiring combination

of the traditional and modern in these compositions

will touch the inner souls and captivate the hearts of those

interested in Higher Love in these turbulent times of transition

and frantic search for peace.

Nimah Ismail Nawwab was born to a Meccan family

with a long history of scholars. An English writer, editor and

poet as well as photographer, her interests have led her to

venture in various fields and work on diverse projects. Her

publications were featured in Newsweek, BBC World-News, LA

Times, and other major media outlets. She has presented in

various major events throughout the Middle East and North

America. She lives in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Outline of Sufism

The Essentials of Islamic Spirituality

William Stoddart, Foreword by R.W.J. Austin

This concise book seeks to make available to the public

what may be called “the other side of Islam”: not the violent

aspect appearing in the nightly news headlines which

focus on radical terrorists, but the long and rich tradition at

the heart of Islamic spirituality known as Sufism. With great

lucidity and clarity, Stoddart offers a succinct, yet comprehensive

overview of Sufism’s fundamental doctrines and spiritual

practices, which are followed by many millions of

Muslims throughout the world. Known for his capacity to

give clear explanations of unfamiliar and complex material,

Stoddart highlights Sufism’s intricate symbolism, and explains

the central role of the invocation of the Name of God

in Sufi spiritual practice; an appendix includes central Koranic,

Prophetic, and traditional Sufi sayings. This new edition

is based upon an earlier and much shorter book

Stoddart wrote 35 years ago, which was highly acclaimed by

leading experts in the field of Islamic Studies. Harvard professor

Annemarie Schimmel remarked that it was “Useful ...

adorned with many good illustrations ... (and) contains

many important points clearly expressed.”

William Stoddart was born in Carstairs, Scotland, lived

most of his life in London, England. He was a close associate

of both Frithjof Schuon and Titus Burckhardt and translated

several of their works into English. He was assistant editor of

the British journal Studies in Comparative Religion. His works

include Outlines of Hinduism, and Outlines of Buddhism. He

lives in Windsor, Ontario.

The Essence of . . .

George Fox’s Journal

Edited with an Introduction by Hunter Lewis

George Fox founded The Religious Society of Friends, better

known as Quakers, a form of Christianity which has

had an immense influence on religious thought throughout

the world, and which also played a large role in the early

days of the American colonies.

Friends rely on orthodox Christian scriptures, but otherwise

lack a formal creed. They believe that Jesus speaks to

each of us directly, through an inner voice. Worship was originally

unplanned, with spontaneous testimony from worshippers

as the voice speaks to them. Quakers were also

originally pacifists, although practice has come to vary in this

too. Simple living, good works, and emulating Jesus’ own life

are all central tenets.

George Fox (1624-1691 in England) had an absolutely indomitable

will, which carried him through beatings, imprisonment,

and other severe trials. The story contained in his

journal is vivid and hard to put down. Remarkably, Fox survives

and even has time to visit America and help establish

his Church there.

The Essence of . . .

Jane Addams’s Twenty

Years at Hull-House

Edited with an Introduction by Hunter Lewis

Jane Addams (1860-1935) was arguably the most influential

woman in American history. She founded Hull-House, a

“settlement house” intended to serve the poor of Chicago,

in 1897, and lived there the rest of her life.

As time passed, she became a spokesperson for the poor,

for women, for children, for families, for sanitation, for public

health, for social and political reform, first in Chicago, then

nationally, and finally throughout the world. In her time, she

was as famous as a president, and her books were read everywhere.

Concern for the poor and minorities led her gradually into

active politics. This included, in addition to municipal reform,

winning voting rights for women and also a pacifist approach

to world affairs. In 1931, she became the first American

woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Addams’s mission as one of the first American public intellectuals,

and a hugely successful activist and reformer as

well, shines forth brightly in her inspiring and easy to read

autobiography.

The Auschwitz

Volunteer

Beyond Bravery

Captain Witold Pilecki; Translated by Jarek Garlinski

September 1940. With calm deliberation, Polish Army officer

Witold Pilecki walked into a Nazi German street roundup

in Warsaw…and became Auschwitz Prisoner No. 4859.

Pilecki had volunteered for a secret mission: smuggle out

intelligence about this new German concentration camp,

and build a resistance organization among prisoners.

He barely survived more than two years of hunger, disease

and brutality, but Pilecki accomplished his mission before

escaping in 1943. His clandestine intelligence from

Auschwitz, received by the Allies in 1941, was among the

earliest.

The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery is Pilecki’s dramatic

eyewitness report, written in 1945 for his Polish Army

superiors.

This seminal primary source is published in English for the

first time.

Captain Witold Pilecki (1901–1948), Polish Army officer

and resistance leader, fought in the 1944 Warsaw Rising. Executed

as a “Western” spy by the post-war Communist Polish

government in 1948, Pilecki was fully exonerated in 1990.

Translator Jarek Garlinski, born in England, specializes in

WWII. Both parents served in the Polish Underground; his father

survived imprisonment in Auschwitz and Neuengamme.

The U.S. Navy Pictorial

History of the War of 1812

Don Philpott

The War of 1812, often known also as the Second War of

American Independence, was hugely influential in shaping

the United States as we know it today. It was fought between

the US and Great Britain and its provinces—Upper and

Lower Canada—with France acting as a thorn in both of their

sides. It included many major land and sea battles spanning

four years, and gave the US its national anthem and established

it as a major military and political force in the world. It

also spurred the emergence and growth of the US Navy. The

U.S. Navy Pictorial History of the War of 1812 combines a fresh

historical narrative with over 130 dramatic illustrations, many

in color, to celebrate this war on its bicentennial. This book

focuses on the naval battles of the War of 1812, which

tended to be the most important, and proved influential in

determining the fate of each of the nations involved. Pictures

depict historic battle scenes, impressive naval vessels, and important

historical figures, many of whom we remember

specifically for their actions in the War of 1812.

Don Phiilpott is editor-in-chief of International Homeland

Security. For 20 years he was a senior correspondent with

Reuters-Press Association. He lives in Longwood, FL.

The Guide to

Business Divorce

Richard R. Spore III

Stripped to its essence, a business divorce occurs when the

owners conclude that the benefits of continuing their

business relationship are outweighed by the costs (economic

or human) to such an extent that continued co-ownership of

the business is no longer a viable option. To provide lawyers

with guidance and understanding on how to handle a business

divorce, this new book provides an analytical framework

and useful insights in representing clients in business divorces.

The guide is a helpful starting point in researching

legal and business issues that often arise in these sorts of matters.

The Guide to Business Divorce proposes a systematic

process for handling a business divorce that will help you

identify commonly recurring problems and craft practical solutions

to address them. In addition, it will help you identify

challenges that are unique to a particular business break-up

and develop creative approaches to addressing those challenges.

Richard R. Spore III is a member of Bass, Berry & Sims

PLC. He graduated from The University of the South summa

cum laude and from The University of Virginia Law School.

Richard also received an M.B.A. in finance from Christian

Corporate Director’s

Guidebook

Sixth Edition

ABA Business Law Section Corporate Laws Committee

This Sixth Edition is being published in the wake of the

2007-2010 financial crisis and the resulting legislation,

the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection

Act (Dodd-Frank Act). As a result, this edition emphasizes

themes arising out of the crisis and important to all directors,

particularly those in public companies.

This updated edition explores the role of directors in overseeing

both strategy and risk. Strategy and risk are interrelated,

and directors cannot understand and guide strategy

without also focusing on risk. Corporations must manage

risks appropriately. Although not engaged in day-to-day risk

management, directors are charged with its oversight.

To help directors engage in effective oversight and decision-making

processes in the current environment, the Sixth

Edition emphasizes: risk management and its role in company

strategy and operations; executive compensation decision-making

by compensation committees, with a focus on

the links between compensation, performance and risk; chief

Executive Officer (CEO) succession planning and its relationship

to strategy and risk oversight; and new federal statutory

and regulatory requirements that set forth legal baselines for

boards and public companies.

This ABA Business Law Section Corporate Laws Committee

has jurisdiction over the Model Business Corporation

Act, which has been adopted by approximately 32 states.

The Committee also focuses on other issues relating to the

functioning of corporations, both public and non-public. The

Committee also publishes guidelines for the functioning of

members of the boards of directors, the Model Business Corporation

Act Annotated (4th Edition) and other reports and

papers.

The Law of Clean

Energy

Efficiency and Renewables

Edited by Michael B. Gerrard

Increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy

are the most important actions that can be taken to

combat climate changes. As a result, the growth of clean energy

will likely be one of the major economic engines of the

coming decade. However, addressing this reality is especially

challenging: U.S. laws governing energy efficiency and renewable

energy are fragmented across levels of government,

regions of the country, types of energy resources, regulatory

techniques, and policy objectives. The Law of Clean Energy is

a current, clearly written explanation of the laws that apply

and the critical legal issues involved in the transition to a

clean energy economy. Chapter authors bring to the book

state-of-the-art knowledge and perspectives drawn from

legal practice, law school and legal research, business, and

nonprofit and advocacy organizations. Topics include an

overview on energy use and supplies and obstacles to achieving

a clean energy economy; federal, state, and local energy

efficiency laws and laws governing renewables and facility

siting; tax and nontax incentives as well as pricing and financing

issues; the use of energy in particular sectors; different

kinds of renewable energy and energy transmission and

storage. Includes a 50-state survey of the state laws on energy

efficiency and renewables.

Foreclosure Defense

A Practical Litigation Guide

Rebecca A. Taylor

The United States is in the midst of an unprecedented foreclosure

epidemic, and there are things that lawyers must

do for homeowners that they cannot do themselves to help

save their homes. Foreclosure Defense will assist you in navigating

alternative dispute resolutions to hopefully avert a

foreclosure action from even being filed against your client;

but if an action is filed, the book offers many possible litigation

strategies and defenses.

Citing the most recent and developing cases, Foreclosure

Defense focuses on a number of issues raised in recent law

and news, as well as the predominant recurring issues. In

three parts—Ethical Considerations, Trial Basics, and Summary

Judgment and Beyond—the book walks you through

the basics of loans, the applicable federal laws with a look at

different state regulations, what loan modification programs

are available, unscrupulous bank practices, affirmative defenses,

getting summary judgment dismissed, and everything

else you need to know to protect your client’s home,

as well as what to counsel when you cannot.

Includes a comprehensive CD-ROM of sample forms, motions,

notices, and more!

The ABA Guide to

Foreign Law Firms

Fifth Edition

James R. Silkenat and William M. Hannay

This new and updated reference, The ABA Guide to Foreign

Law Firms, Fifth Edition, is designed to help both U.S. and

non U.S. lawyers in identifying qualified legal counsel in the

many foreign jurisdictions with which such lawyers are likely

to come into contact, particularly those in countries emerging

as significant factors in international commercial transactions.

The complexity and diversity of legal problems today frequently

brings American lawyers and their clients into contact

with the laws of foreign jurisdictions. In addition to

American clients wanting to purchase from, invest in, or export

to, other countries, there are numerous occasions during

counseling and/or litigation when questions of foreign

law arise. As a practical and valuable reference tool, the Guide

lists the foreign law firms most likely to be used or considered

by leading practitioners when foreign law issues arise.

James R. Silkenat is a former Chairman of the 20,000

member American Bar Association Section of International

Law and is a Partner in the New York office of Sullivan &

Worcester LLP, where he helps coordinate the Firm’s international

practice. He specializes in the areas of international finance,

banking, securities and corporate law. He is also a

former Chairman of the ABA’s Section Officers Conference, a

member of the Executive Committee of the ABA’s Board of

Governors and Chairman of the ABA’s Latin American Legal

Initiatives Council. William M. Hannay is a partner in the

Chicago-based law firm of Schiff Hardin LLP and concentrates

his practice in litigation and counseling with respect to

competition and trade regulation law at home and abroad.

He is the leader of the firm’s Antitrust Practice Group. Mr.

Hannay chaired the American Bar Association’s Section of the

International Law and Practice in 1998-99 and later served as

Chair of the ABA’s Africa Law Initiative Council in 2000-02

A Practical Guide to

Software Licensing

For Licensees and Licensors, 4th Edition

H. Ward Classen

Revised and updated, this new Fourth Edition examines the

fundamental issues that both licensors and licensees confront

in the negotiation of a software license and, where appropriate,

looks at relevant ancillary issues such as software

development as well as maintenance and support. It primarily

focuses on non-mass market agreements, since most retail

or mass market off-the-shelf software is governed by

non-negotiable shrinkwrap and click wrap licenses. Nonetheless,

the principles of software licensing are the same for both

shrink-wrapped, click wrapped, and custom-developed software.

The book is accompanied by and cross-referenced to

an annotated software license. A companion CD-ROM is also

included for customization of the software license and related

forms.

Written in practical, easily understandable language, this

book is cross referenced to a model agreement. It is written

from the perspective of both the licensor and the licensee

and includes model forms with alternative clauses to fit many

perspectives. The CD-ROM is a great companion filled with

easy-to-use forms. New to this Edition:

• Open Source Software

• Privacy and Security Issues

• Alternative Dispute Resolution

• Bankruptcy Issues

• Employee Issues

• Best Practices for Contract Drafting and Successful

Implementation.

H. Ward Classen is Deputy General Counsel of Computer

Sciences Corporation with responsibility for CSC’s North

American business solutions, world sourcing, healthcare, and

financial services business units.

Model Business

Corporation Act

Official Text with Official Comments and

Statutory Cross-References Revised through

December 2010

ABA Business Law Section Corporate Laws Committee

The Model Business Corporation Act, 2010 contains all

amendments to the text of the Model Act and Official

Comments through December, 2010.

The Model Act was first promulgated in 1950 by the

Committee on Corporate Laws of the American Bar Association’s

Section of Business Law. The Committee has regularly

reviewed and revised the Act since that time, including a

major revision in 1969, substantial changes to the financial

provisions in 1980 and a completely revised Act in 1984. Significant

amendments to the Model Act published in supplements

regularly thereafter, including, most recently, 2005.

The Model Act is acknowledged and followed as a principal

leading model of corporate statutes in the United States,

having been adopted in whole or substantial part as the corporation

statute of 30 states, while selected provisions of the

Act have been adopted by many other states. The success of

the Act is due to the many distinguished lawyers, judges and

legal academics who have devoted countless hours to the

study of the most important corporate law issues of the day

and to the revision of the Act to address those issues.

This ABA Business Law Section Corporate Laws Committee

has jurisdiction over the Model Business Corporation

Act, which has been adopted by approximately 32 states. The

Committee also focuses on other issues relating to the functioning

of corporations, both public and non-public. The

Committee publishes guidelines for the functioning of members

of the boards of directors, the Model Business Corporation

Act Annotated (4th Edition) and other reports and papers.

Rantings of a Partner...

and Pushback from the

Associate

Edited by Bart L. Greenwald

Law firm partners have no shortage of opinions about

associates. And associates have plenty to say about working

with partners. This new book gives both parties a forum

to express their views about the current practice of law.

Among the rantings and pushback are invaluable tips and

advice for succeeding in a law firm.

Topics include:

• Research and Writing

• Mentoring and Development

• Client Relations and Marketing

• The Case

• Office Politics and Etiquette

• Tips for Success

The issues represented in this book come from partners

and associates across the country espousing themes like

enjoy your work, give associates meaningful assignments,

teach your associates how to market, and “own” your work.

Some of the material is funny. Some of it is eye-opening.

Some of it you will disagree with and dismiss. But all of it can

be educational—and can help make you a better lawyer.

Bart L. Greenwald practices law in Louisville, KY.

Anatomy of a Trial

A Handbook for Young Lawyers

Paul Mark Sandler

Anatomy of a Trial examines the key phases of jury trials

(voir dire, opening statements, direct and cross-examination,

and closing arguments) in the context of two particular

cases, one criminal and the other civil. The criminal case

involves highly complex subjects and law, and is a matter of

simplification and storytelling for the jury. The civil case illustrates

that most cases hinge on the credibility of witnesses,

and also showcases the critical importance of experts in trials

of a technical nature.

The assessment of these two criminal and civil cases highlights

their differences, and illustrates where the well-developed

principles of rhetoric are fundamental to success at

trial, no matter the nature of the litigation. With complete

opening and closing statements, many actual transcripts

from the trials, helpful explanations of the tactics used in the

courtroom, and commentary from five judges on what the

lawyers did right and wrong, Anatomy of a Trial is a thorough

exploration of trial techniques through the lens of two actual

cases.

Paul Mark Sandler lives in Baltimore, MD.

Herring on the Nile

Ethelred and Elsie #4

L.C. Tyler

Ahilarious parody of Agatha Christie and fourth in a series

nominated for two Edgar awards.

Ethelred Tressider’s career is not, let’s face it, what one

might call glittering. This is not surprising: Ethelred lost any

real interest in writing mystery novels many years ago, and

his audience has never been truly excited about reading

them. And yet the bills must be paid. In a desperate effort to

revive his imagination, Ethelred books a cruise down the

Nile—cradle of civilization, ancient royal rivalries, etc. Well, it

worked for Agatha Christie.

It is not, however, working very well for Ethelred. No

sooner has he settled into his stateroom—followed, of

course, by his agent, the splendid Elsie—than dead bodies

start littering the premises. There are any number of suspects,

but for many of the boat’s amateur sleuths, it becomes

increasingly apparent that the dastardly murderer is none

other than Ethelred.

L.C. Tyler represented the British Council in Malaysia,

Thailand, Denmark and Sudan. Now a full-time writer, he

lives in London.

The Second-Last

Woman in England

Maggie Joel

Atragedy of manners, like Jane Austen in 1950s London.

It’s 1952, and for England, it’s a brave and bright new

world. The Depression is over, the War is over, even the endless

bloody rationing is nearly over, and the future looks as

lovely as the young Queen Elizabeth, due to be crowned

next June. Mrs. Harriett Wallis, for one, cannot wait for tomorrow.

Her husband has an important job with an important

firm, the children are settling in with the new nanny, the

new fashions are terrifically flattering, and the War—grubby,

grim, ghastly—is done. Life is going to be just killingly wonderful.

Unfortunately, it’s also going to be short: In just a few

months, Mrs. Harriett Wallis will become the second-to-last

woman in England to be sentenced to death.

“The mesmerising story crackles with atmosphere and delivers

some great twists.” —Australian Women’s Weekly

Maggie Joel is a British-born writer living in Sydney. This

is Joel’s U.S. debut.

Whom the Gods Love

Julian Kestrel #3

Kate Ross

Fans of Regency-era romances will love this series, featuring

the dashing Julian Kestrel. But it will also be catnip for

devotees of classic gentlemen-sleuth mysteries, like those by

Dorothy Sayers: With his quips, his impeccable tailoring, and

his knack for solving “problems” that baffle the police,

Kestrel is the spiritual godfather to Lord Peter Wimsey.

In this, the third in the series, what’s baffling the coppers

is the death of young Alexander Falkland—rich, beautiful,

and lucky until he wasn’t any more. The gods’ favorite, Falkland

appeared to have charmed everyone he ever met…except

for whoever it was that left him dead at his own party,

a blood-stained poker beside him. The guest-list, of course,

was crammed with the cream of London society. And of that

glittering assembly, every last member is a suspect.

“A tale as sparkling as champagne (with a dash of arsenic)”

—Publishers Weekly

Kate Ross (1956-1998) was a trial lawyer in Boston, and

the author of four novels featuring Julian Kestrel.

The Innocent Spy

Ted Stratton #1

Laura Wilson

Diana Calthorp is a society beauty, escaping a loveless

marriage by doing just a little spying for MI5. Ted Stratton

is a working-class copper, poking with little passion into

the death of a sad, middle-aged woman. In an ordinary

world, their paths would never cross, but the war has turned

the world on its head, and you never know who you’ll be sitting

next to in the shelter once the Luftwaffe’s bombs start

falling.

When the two start chatting, they discover they have

more in common than one might imagine. Both of them—

Diana with her casual investigation of pro-Nazi socialites,

Stratton with his dogged attempt to win justice for a brokendown

drunk—are running up against very peculiar and very

solid roadblocks. Could collaboration help find ways around

the obstacles

Based on a true story.

“A terrific police procedural, a mesmerizing histori -

cal novel...Laura Wilson is an exceptional talent.”

—Laura Lippman

Laura Wilson is an award-winning British author of historical

fiction. She lives in London.

One Night in the

Everglades

Laurel Larsen, Ph.D.

Illustrated by Joyce Mihran Turley

Follow two scientists as they spend a night in the Everglades

collecting water samples, photographing wildlife,

and sloshing through marshes in an attempt to understand

this complex ecosystem. Part of a long-term effort to return

the Everglades to a natural state after a century of development,

the scientists seek to ascertain what the “river of grass”

was like prior to human settlement. Along the way, the scientists

deal with razor-sharp sawgrass, alligators and turtles,

and are even surprised by the sudden presence of what is

known in the Everglades as a “frog gigger”—one who hunts

and collects frogs for food!

Laurel Larsen, Ph.D., did her dissertation research on the

Everglades ridge and slough landscape. She is currently a research

ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Reston,

VA. Joyce Mihran Turley has illustrated many children’s

books depicting the unique ecosystems of our national parks.

She lives in Fort Collins, CO.

Noble Women of Faith

Asiya, Mary, Khadija, Fatima

Shahada Sharelle Haqq

Islamic tradition praises Asiyah, Mary, Khadijah, and Fatimah

as the four women who showed monumental examples of

excellence in faith. While Mary, the mother of Jesus, is the

only woman mentioned by name in the Qur’an, the other

three are mentioned in the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad,

peace be upon him. Asiyah was the wife of Pharaoh

and she was the one who protected Moses in the palace

from the wrath of her furious husband. Mary is the epitome

of purity and submission, who was miraculously blessed with

Jesus, and she stood firm against all kinds of slanders and accusations.

Khadijah was the first believer to the Prophet

Muhammad. She spent all her fortune in her husband’s

cause, including her life. Fatimah, the Prophet’s daughter, is

the person through whom the Prophet’s generation still continues.

This book depicts the lives of these four remarkable

women of the human history.

Shahada Sharelle Haqq is a freelance illustrator of children’s

books and the co-author and illustrator of Stories of

Prophets in the Holy Qur’an. She lives in Huntsville, AL.

Uthman

The Possessor of Two Lights

Selcuk Taykutgul

Uthman Dhun-Nurayn is the third of the four Rightly-

Guided Caliphs in the history of Islam. His possessing of

the “two lights” refers to his honor of being the son-in-law of

the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), twice. This book is a biography

of this one of the leading figures of the Islamic advent,

for whom the Prophet said, “Everyone will have a friend in

paradise and my friend there will be Uthman.”

Selcuk Taykutgul is a teacher of literature and Turkish language.

He has written various books for children and

teenagers. He lives in Istanbul, Turkey.
