Robert Longo: Charcoal - (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 252Genre: ArtSub-Genre: Individual ArtistsFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Hatje CantzAge Range: AdultBook theme: MonographsLanguage: English Book Synopsis The enormous, photorealistic charcoal drawings of American artist Robert Longo (born 1953) show the beauty and horror of the present day and age.His large-format works contrast the innocence of sleeping toddlers, the tranquil grandiosity of Earth and the planets, roses in bloom and Gothic cathedrals with threatening images of atom bomb explosions, fighter pilots, monster waves, sharks and the muzzles of revolvers. Inexorably and precisely, Longo records the state of our world; his powerful motifs give form and expression to the feelings of fear and longing felt by people in the 21st century, and affect the viewer with the full force of the medium.Back in print, this large-format, elaborately designed book--printed on natural paper using a tritone process, bound in half-cloth and distributed in four different cover designs--has been created in close collaboration with the artist and affords a comprehensive overview of his charcoal drawings from the past decade. Review Quotes Art doesn't get more basic than charcoal drawings, unless it's those scratched in the dirt with a stick. In the cave of Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc in France, the charcoal drawings are (perhaps) 32,000 years old. Mr. Longo's hyper-realistic drawings here are a bit more recent, though no less lively. Many of them dwell on nature: skyscraper waves out of a surfer's dream, and razor-mouthed sharks out of a surfer's nightmare; white tigers and vast nebulas; and mushroom clouds as if drafted by Georgia O'Keeffe.--Dana Jennings -The New York Times -Three essays explain how Longo's recurring themes - such as monster waves, the -sickness of reason- in nuclear explosions, and sharks as -perfect Gods- - typically capture moments of climax, tap into the collective unconscious and ask questions about how power achieves its effects. The overbearing scale of many of the drawings is consonant with those concerns.--Paul Carey-Kent -The Art Newspaper -
Faith Phonics - by Melvin C Echard (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 54Genre: EducationSub-Genre: Teaching Methods & MaterialsFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Xulon PressAge Range: AdultBook theme: Reading & PhonicsAuthor: Melvin C EchardLanguage: English Book Synopsis Faith Phonics makes the words of Jesus Christ accessible to everyone through decoding text. Often time, young readers learn to read by engaging with fictional stories often presented in series books. They learn by reading highly predictable text and storytelling. Regardless of one's reading ability or level of comprehension, the parables offer rich stories that are relevant in every developmental stages of life. With the tools presented in Faith Phonics, every believer, both young and old, can share the same stories Jesus shared over 2,000 years ago. Jesus's teachings are a collection of combined sounds that form meaning (words). When words are spoken together, they convey meaning and context. When they are spoken out loud, they become a catalyst for change. Like babies, we need to speak the language of our Holy Father and use our voice to steer others to Christ. The parables provide a good foundation for ensuring we are passing on the same powerful illustrations that Jesus shared with His followers. Each parable seeks to share a story to help you on your journey in life while revealing a promise of a much greater afterlife. It is our job to seek the deeper meaning. Jesus uses literary devices (metaphors and similes) which allow us to compare our life with the kingdom of God. We have included graphic organizers to highlight the comparisons Jesus makes between our everyday world and the Kingdom of God. It is amazing to consider that Jesus knew our needs over 2,000 years ago and how relevant His teachings are today. It is only those with a repentant heart that can be led to redemption and ultimately salvation. Life is a journey into the Kingdom. Melvin C. Echard Sr. is a retired public education administrator and husband of 34 years. He is a man of Faith and constantly seeks to understand God's design for the family through prayer and an examination of scripture. Melvin married Mona, his high school sweetheart.

Drunk - by Edward Slingerland (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 384Genre: PsychologySub-Genre: Evolutionary PsychologyFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Little, Brown SparkAge Range: AdultAuthor: Edward SlingerlandLanguage: English About the Book 'Drunk' provides a deep dive into the evolutionary science behind why humans love to get drunk, and how alcohol and other intoxicants catalyzed and shaped civilization. Edward Slingerland lives in Vancouver, BC. Book Synopsis A "entertaining and enlightening" deep dive into the alcohol-soaked origins of civilization--and the evolutionary roots of humanity's appetite for intoxication. (Daniel E. Lieberman, author of Exercised) While plenty of entertaining books have been written about the history of alcohol and other intoxicants, none have offered a comprehensive, convincing answer to the basic question of why humans want to get high in the first place. Drunk elegantly cuts through the tangle of urban legends and anecdotal impressions that surround our notions of intoxication to provide the first rigorous, scientifically-grounded explanation for our love of alcohol. Drawing on evidence from archaeology, history, cognitive neuroscience, psychopharmacology, social psychology, literature, and genetics, Slingerland shows that our taste for chemical intoxicants is not an evolutionary mistake, as we are so often told. In fact, intoxication helps solve a number of distinctively human challenges: enhancing creativity, alleviating stress, building trust, and pulling off the miracle of getting fiercely tribal primates to cooperate with strangers. Our desire to get drunk, along with the individual and social benefits provided by drunkenness, played a crucial role in sparking the rise of the first large-scale societies. We would not have civilization without intoxication. From marauding Vikings and bacchanalian orgies to sex-starved fruit flies, blind cave fish, and problem-solving crows, Drunk is packed with fascinating case studies and engaging science, as well as practical takeaways for individuals and communities. The result is a captivating and long overdue investigation into humanity's oldest indulgence--one that explains not only why we want to get drunk, but also how it might actually be good for us to tie one on now and then. Review Quotes "Drunk is one of those rare, enthralling books that is as entertaining as it is enlightening. Slingerland's uproarious and erudite exploration of the history, anthropology, and science of intoxicants will revolutionize how you drink and think."--Daniel E. Lieberman, Edwin M Lerner II Professor of Biological Sciences at Harvard University, and author of Exercised"Engrossing. This heady book is best savored as a fresh take on a contentious topic."--New Scientist"Drunk is a punchy and stimulating intellectual cocktail that takes a fresh look at one of our species' most puzzling obsessions--our routine consumption of sublethal dosages of a psychoactive poison. Despite a deep erudition that effortlessly weaves together history, anthropology, genetics, and chemistry, Slingerland's book feels like a chat with an old friend over a couple of pints. You'll learn a lot, but you won't notice, because you'll be so entertained."--Joseph Henrich, author of The WEIRDest People in World, and Professor and Chair of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University"A brilliant and definitive book. Alcohol has been used and abused by more people in more places at more times than all other intoxicants combined. The story of drinking is, indeed, the story of humanity, and Edward Slingerland tells it with endearing wit, irreverence, wisdom, and profound insight. "--Wade Davis, author of Magdalena: River of Dreams"A fascinating account of our obsession with the demon drink."--Iain Gately, author of Drink: A Cultural History of Alcohol"A spirited look at drinking"--Kirkus"Absorbing...Slingerland makes a compelling case that human societies have been positively shaped by alcohol."--The Wall Street Journal"An eminently enjoyable, irreverent, and informative romp through the world of intoxicants. Drunk is a milestone in the field." --Brian Hayden, author of The Power of Feasts"Compelling and, above all, a whole lot of irreverent fun."--Smithsonian Magazine"Cooperation on a large scale is vital to the success of contemporary society. In this fascinating, funny and readable book, Professor Slingerland presents the case that alcohol is part of a cultural toolkit honed over thousands of years to help us all get along in a complex world. Drunk shines a new light on our love-hate relationship with booze."--Greg Wadley, University of Melbourne"Does booze make us human? In this wide-ranging, provocative, and very funny exploration, Edward Slingerland makes an excellent case that intoxication is a powerful force for trust and love. From the first paragraph about the appeal of masturbation, Twinkies, and alcohol, to the rousing ending where Slingerland urges us to leave a place for ecstasy in our lives, Drunk is a delight."--Paul Bloom, author of Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion"Slingerland ... weaves modern scientific studies with ancient mythology. An illuminating yet conversational study that takes an anthropological approach to a widespread and often puzzling human behavior."--Jeffrey Meyer, Library Journal"This book is a love letter to Dionysius. Even as it aroused memories of patients whose lives were ruined by alcohol, Drunk made me appreciate the value as well as the pleasure of drinking with friends, and of reading wonderful books."--Randolph M. Nesse, M.D., author of Good Reasons for Bad Feelings, and Founding Director of The Center for Evolution and Medicine at Arizona State University"Wide-ranging and provocative...Drunk helpfully synthesizes the literature, then underlines its most radical implication: Humans aren't merely built to get buzzed--getting buzzed helped humans build civilization." --The Atlantic"Witty, wise, effervescent, and slyly irreverent. This sparkling chronicle belongs on the shelf of every thinking person who enjoys a drink from time to time."--Janet Chrzan, author of Alcohol: Social Drinking in Cultural Context"A witty and well-informed narrator, Slingerland ranges across a wide range of academic fields to make his case. Readers will toast this praiseworthy study."--Publishers Weekly"Drunk induces a thrilling intellectual buzz. Edward Slingerland plunges his bar spoon into the rich ethnographic, archaeological, psychological, and historic literatures, stirs vigorously, and produces a cocktail of brilliant and novel insights about the role that alcohol played in the development of human civilization, and its continued importance today. He's more entertaining than your typical bartender, and the drink he's mixed is one we'll be sipping, absorbing, and savoring for quite some time. Cheers!"--Richard Sosis, coauthor of Religion Evolving, and James Barnett Professor of Humanistic Anthropology, University of Connecticut"To understand why people drink is to tap into the very core of human experience. Professor Slingerland seamlessly weaves together observations from a dizzying array of disciplines across the sciences and humanities. In so doing, he provides provocative insights regarding why we prize drinking and offers practical suggestions about how we might drink responsibly and better integrate drinking and nondrinking members of society. Read the first few paragraphs and you will immediately realize that you are in for a truly engrossing and delightful read! Read further and you also realize that you're gaining a cutting-edge understanding of both the pleasures and the hazards of drinking. Slingerland has deftly managed to educate, surprise, and entertain while distilling a complex alcohol literature to address just why we humans drink to the point of intoxication."--Michael Sayette, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, and Director of the Alcohol and Smoking Research Laboratory, University of Pittsburgh About the Author Edward Slingerland is Distinguished University Scholar and Professor of Asian Studies at the University of British Columbia, with adjunct appointments in Psychology and Philosophy, as well as Co-Director of the Centre for the Study of Human Evolution, Cognition and Culture and Director of the Database of Religious History. Slingerland is the author of Trying Not to Try, which was named one of the best books of 2014 by The Guardian and Brain Pickings and was the subject of a piece by John Tierney in the New York Times. He has given talks on the science and power of spontaneity at a variety of venues across the world, including TEDx Maastricht and two Google campuses, and has done numerous interviews on TV, radio, blogs, and podcasts, including NPR, the BBC World Service and the CBC.

Consequences of Capitalism - by Noam Chomsky & Marv Waterstone (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 400Genre: Political ScienceSub-Genre: History & TheoryFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Haymarket BooksAge Range: AdultAuthor: Noam Chomsky & Marv WaterstoneLanguage: English About the Book In this landmark text Chomsky and Waterstone chart a critical map for a more just and sustainable society by making connections between common sense and power. Book Synopsis Covid-19 has revealed glaring failures and monstrous brutalities in the current capitalist system. It represents both a crisis and an opportunity. Contests for controlling the narratives around the meaning of this pandemic will be the terrain of struggle for either a new, more humane common sense and society or a return to the status quo ante. The outcome of those contests is uncertain; everything depends on the actions that people take into their own hands. --From the Afterword Is our "common sense" understanding of the world a reflection of the ruling class's demands of the larger society? If we are to challenge the capitalist structures that now threaten all life on the planet, Chomsky and Waterstone forcefully argue that we must look closely at the everyday tools we use to interpret the world. Consequences of Capitalism make the deep, often unseen connections between common sense and power. In making these linkages we see how the current hegemony keep social justice movements divided and marginalized. More importantly, we see how we overcome these divisions. About the Author Noam Chomsky was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on December 7, 1928. He studied linguistics, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1955, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.

Chomsky is the author of numerous best-selling political works, which have been translated into scores of countries worldwide.

He is also the former director of the University of Arizona Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Comparative Cultural and Literary Studies.

Number of Pages: 256Genre: Religion + BeliefsSub-Genre: Christian TheologySeries Title: C.S. Lewis Signature ClassicsFormat: PaperbackPublisher: HarperOneAge Range: AdultBook theme: ApologeticsAuthor: C S LewisLanguage: English About the Book "Mere Christianity" is the most popular of C. S. This book brings together Lewis's legendary radio broadcast talks in which he set out simply "to explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times". Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, "Mere Christianity" is Lewis's term for the essential Christian message--the theological core on which diverse Christian traditions can stand together. Book Synopsis In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis' legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith. From the Back Cover One of the most popular introductions to Christian faith ever written, Mere Christianity has sold millions of copies worldwide. The book brings together C. S. Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many de-nominations, Lewis provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. It is a collection of scintillating brilliance that remains strikingly fresh for the modern reader and at the same time confirms C. S. Lewis's reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age. Review Quotes "It is not surprising that Lewis's time-proven views are still flourishing while most other mid-20th-century works are nearly neglected."--Wall Street Journal"C. S. Lewis understood, like few in the past century, just how deeply faith is both imaginative and rational."--Christianity Today"As we witness Lewis develop we find that these volumes are working as a kind of unconscious autobiography."--Books & Culture

Book Synopsis Jamal and Joseph were born in the same hospital in the same month. Now they're best friends. The two like to play at one another's homes. Joseph's mom knows Jamal can't eat pork sausages because he's Muslim. She knows, too, that he can't have ice cream because of his eczema. Some things that happen at Jamal's house are a lot different from Joseph's: the food his mother prepares, the way they sit to eat, and the special clothes they sometimes wear.

Book Synopsis #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER When dealing with a masterpiece, only the best will do. That's why writer Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson were chosen to adapt George R. R. Martin's beloved fantasy classic A Game of Thrones as a graphic novel. And as anyone who has read the previous two collected volumes of the ongoing series can attest, the result has been a stunning tour de force faithful in every respect to its brilliant original. In King's Landing, Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell--the Hand of King Robert Baratheon--is surrounded by enemies. Some are openly declared, such as Ser Jaime Lannister and his sister, Queen Cersei. Others are hidden in the shadows. Still others wear the smiling mask of friends. But all are deadly, as Eddard is about to discover. Nor is the enmity between Eddard and the Lannister siblings the sole source of friction between these powerful noble families. For Tyrion Lannister, the Imp--whose stunted, twisted body houses the mind of a genius--has but lately won his freedom from Lady Catelyn Stark, Eddard's wife, who had accused him of attempting to murder her youngest son, Brandon. Now he seeks out his father, his restless thoughts bent on revenge. Far to the north, the bastard Jon Snow, newly sworn to the Night's Watch, takes the first faltering steps toward a destiny stranger than he could ever dream--a destiny that will bring him face-to-face with unspeakable horrors from beyond the edge of the world. While across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen, wed to the great Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo, and pregnant with his child--a son prophesied to conquer the world--will see her own destiny take an unforeseen turn.

Comprised of the initial six issues of the graphic series, this is the first volume in what is sure to be one of the most coveted collaborations of the year. Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse--unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen's brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister--the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms. Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki--whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

Andrea Michal-transformational leader, coach and author-has compiled eight inspirational stories, including her own, that illustrate how the path to transformation may begin in our most vulnerable moments; and how, with the support of their respective communities, each of these women triumphed over illness, injury or emotional trauma. Both our intimate and larger communities help us expand our relationships to include not only our human tribe but also connections with animals, nature and the Universal Source. The insight shared by these gifted authors is that when we open our hearts, we tap into our unlimited capacity for giving and receiving love - for ourselves and each other. We are not meant to be alone; we are infinitely intertwined. Now more than ever, a sense of anxiety and uneasiness has become commonplace. Tribe of Light reminds us that when we seek to return to wholeness-our natural state of being-through the connection within our communities, or tribes, we heal and find ourselves living more authentic and peaceful lives.
