When you lose a child, you become someone you don’t want to be, and you have to be that person for the rest of your life . . . I am a person I never wanted to be. A person who has lost a child. Sorrow is David Caldwell's daily compan­ion. Seven years ago, his thirteen-year-old son, Todd, killed his baby brother in an incident that was never fully ex­plained, never quite forgiven. David hasn't seen Todd since he was released from juve­nile prison two years ago. Now David wants to bring what's left of his family together again. He arranges to meet Todd while on a temporary assignment as sheriff of Columbia Beach, the fading resort town where the fam­ily used to vacation. But Columbia Beach has troubles of its own. Cecil Edwards, a giant of a man, holds the town in his bullying grip. And a mysterious young woman, Lindsey Hunter, is quietly slipping into Cecil's life and raising the town's suspicions. During the chilly months of the off-season, these four lives will intersect in ways both tender and violent. Old wounds will be ex­posed, broken hearts will be mended, and a new family bond will be created. With the intensity of a Shakespearean tragedy, Robert Bausch draws on the heart­break of loss and the power of redemption like no other writer. “This novel blew my mind and tore open my heart. A brilliant exploration of human darkness, delusion, and desire for redemption.” —Beth Henley, author of Crimes of the Heart

Negro League ballplayers, earning paychecks comparable to those of blue-collar workers, needed an off-season source of income to make ends meet. Many of them found the answer in baseball, by joining racially integrated barnstorming teams that toured the country after the regular season ended, or by playing in the organized winter leagues that operated in Florida, California, and several Caribbean and Central and South American countries. This history recounts the experiences of American black ballplayers outside of the Negro Leagues—often in places where a lack of prejudice contrasted sharply with conditions at home. Tracing the development of the game in each location and the unique character of each winter league, it details the contributions of the Negro League players and collects their statistics in each of the winter leagues.

A Fast Food Nation for the foods we grow and depend on The bananas we eat today aren't your parents' bananas: We eat a recognizable, consistent breakfast fruit that was standardized in the 1960s from dozens into one basic banana. But because of that, the banana we love is dangerously susceptible to a pathogen that might wipe them out. That's the story of our food today: Modern science has brought us produce in perpetual abundance-once-rare fruits are seemingly never out of season, and we breed and clone the hardiest, best-tasting varieties of the crops we rely on most. As a result, a smaller proportion of people on earth go hungry today than at any other moment in the last thousand years, and the streamlining of our food supply guarantees that the food we buy, from bananas to coffee to wheat, tastes the same every single time. Our corporate food system has nearly perfected the process of turning sunlight, water and nutrients into food. But our crops themselves remain susceptible to the nature's fury. And nature always wins. Authoritative, urgent, and filled with fascinating heroes and villains from around the world, Never Out of Season is the story of the crops we depend on most and the scientists racing to preserve the diversity of life, in order to save our food supply, and us.

Cynicism from Diogenes to Dilbert

Author: Ian Cutler
Release: 2005-06-23

ISBN: 9780786420933
Language: en
Available for:

REVIEWS:

Cynicism began as a school of philosophy that was largely inspired by Socrates and often decried by popular commentators as a social pathology, a nihilistic rebellion against the foundations of civilization. Modern definitions of the cynic describe an individual who is negative and sarcastic, violently opposed to established authority and social convention, and dedicated to existentialism. This book attempts to vindicate cynicism, arguing that it is both a progressive approach to social dilemmas and an enlightened understanding of the human condition. Chapter One establishes the foundations of classical Greek cynicism, while later chapters illustrate the varied faces of the cynic phenomenon in the persons of such disparate characters as Machiavelli, Nietzsche, Diogenes, the Dadaists, George Bataille, Samuel Beckett, Auberon Waugh, the creators of South Park, and others. Nietzsche is portrayed as the most important representative of both classical and postmodern cynicism, as well as the pivotal link between the two. The book focuses on significant periods of historical change, such as the Renaissance, and the historical cynics responsible for several seminal social ideas, including cosmopolitanism (citizenship of the world), asceticism (personal growth through self-testing), and parrhesia (finding one’s voice in the presence of tyrannical forces). The author claims that aspects of Greek cynicism are present in contemporary society, offering a positive strategy for living in a hostile world.

Exceptional colour photographs of the mid-twentieth-century motels of Wildwood, New Jersey, USA, the largest concentration of the exuberant architectural style sometimes known as 'doo wop' complete with neon signs and plastic palms. The images in this book are the result of a ten-year project by Mark Havens to capture the essence of these vanishing treasures. A number of the motels were photographed at the end of their last season, just prior to demolition. The images are accompanied by essays from Joseph Giovanni and Jamer Hunt.
