Moderate wear.The highpoints in archaeology! This wonderfully engaging volume tells the story of some well-known archaeologists and some remarkable excavations. In the process, it throws light on some of the ways in which the founders of archaeology unearthed early civilizations, probed the origins of humankind, and explored the history of non-Western societies. Quest for the Past ranges widely over the world of archaeology, detailing great discoveries as diverse as the excavation of 2-million-year-old Hominids, long-forgotten Native American settlements, and spectacular ancient civilizations, describing the sites and discoveries in the context of their finders' times. Each essay serves as an independent description of some of the challenges faced and discoveries made both by adventurous pioneers like Austen Henry Layard and trained scientists like Rene Millon and Gertrude Caton-Thompson. The volume includes important chapters on how archaeology works and on early female archaeologists.281 p.

The Force of Reason

Fallaci, Oriana

DJ has some shelf wear.Oriana Fallaci is back with her much-anticipated follow up to The Rage and the Pride, her powerful post-September 11 manifesto. The genesis for The Force of Reason was a postscript entitled Due Anni Dopo (Two Years Later), which was intended as a brief appendix to the thirtieth edition of The Rage and the Pride (2002). Once Ms. Fallaci completed the postscript, she chose to expand it into a book, a continuation of her ideas set in motion in The Rage and the Pride.In The Force of Reason Fallaci takes aim at the many attacks and death threats she received after the publication of The Rage and the Pride. Ms. Fallaci begins by identifying herself with one Master Cecco, the author of a heretical book who was burnt at the stake during the Inquisition seven centuries ago on account of his beliefs, and proceeds with a rigorous analysis of the burning of Troy and the creation of a Europe that, to her judgment, is no longer her familiar homeland but rather a place best called Eurabia, a soon-to-b ...

Moderate wear."A riveting memoir about an inspiring Iranian woman and her country's road to revolution." "A lesson about the value of personal freedom and what happens to a nation when its people are denied the right to direct their own destiny. This is a book Americans should read." --Washington PostThe fifteenth of thirty-six children, Sattareh Farman Farmaian was born in Iran in 1921 to a wealthy and powerful shazdeh, or prince, and spent a happy childhood in her father's Tehran harem. Inspired and empowered by his ardent belief in education, she defied tradition by traveling alone at the age of twenty-three to the United States to study at the University of Southern California. Ten years later, she returned to Tehran and founded the first school of social work in Iran.Intertwined with Sattareh's personal story is her unique perspective on the Iranian political and social upheaval that have rocked Iran throughout the twentieth century, from the 1953 American-backed coup that toppled democratic premier Mos ...

Tight copy with highlighting on a few pages. People often make the mistake of thinking opposites attract. Opposites never attract, that would be like a criminal hooking up with a nun. However, opposing personality types often attract; this is when one partner says "black" the other says "white." This book shows what is required to keep these opposing forces also complementary. The Chinese philosophy of the Yin Yang states that two opposing yet complementary forces lie at the base of how all things work. This philosophy shows how people can flow in natural harmony and what is required during conflict. We have all delightfully experienced a waiter who obviously takes joy in serving his clients or a boss who naturally leads while caring for his employees, versus those not equipped for the responsibility they work in. Character dynamics exist similar to these in relationships and understanding them provides insight as to why certain couples naturally get along while others operate with a lack of int ... Read more

Ennesima: 2015 : Present Tense, Indefinite Mood

Fassi, Luigi, Garutti, Francesco, Lissoni, Andrea & Lo Pinto, Luca

Tight, unmarked copy. Text in Italian and English. Andrea Lissoni and Luca Lo Pinto have the task of describing and narrating, through a lively conversation ("The blasphemies of Carol Rama"), the nuanced meaning of the word "generation" in the book focusing on the work and poetics of a heterogeneous selection of artists belonging to the last two generations to emerge on a national and international level: 2015: tempo presente, modo indefinito (2015: Present Time, Indefinite Mood). This is joined by two texts by Francesco Garutti ("Opinion leaders, lies and the state of the art") and Luigi Fassi ("New encyclopedia"), which evenly divide the analysis of the works in the exhibition, all made in 2015 for "Ennesima," investigating their genesis and meanings. 70 p.

Ultraluminous

Faw, Katherine

Moderate wear.Girlfriend. Prostitute. Addict. Terrorist? Who is K? The daring new novel from Katherine Faw, the brilliant author of Young God, is a scintillating story of money, sex, and power told in Faw's viciously sharp prose. A high-end, girlfriend-experience prostitute has just returned to her native New York City after more than a decade abroad―in Dubai, with a man she recalls only as the Sheikh―but it's unclear why exactly she's come back. Did things go bad for her? Does she have scores to settle? Regardless, she has quickly made herself at home. She's set up a rotation of clients―all of them in finance―each of whom has different delusions of how he is important to her. And she's also met a man whom she doesn't charge―a damaged former Army Ranger, back from Afghanistan. Her days are strangely orderly: A repetition of dinners, personal grooming, museum exhibitions, sex, Duane Reades (she likes the sushi), cosmology, sex, gallery shows, nightclubs, heroin, sex, and art films (which she finds so ...

Finding Nouf

Ferraris, Zoe

Moderate wear.Zoë Ferraris's electrifying debut of taut psychological suspense offers an unprecedented window into Saudi Arabia and the lives of men and women there. When sixteen-year-old Nouf goes missing, along with a truck and her favorite camel, her prominent family calls on Nayir al-Sharqi, a desert guide, to lead a search party. Ten days later, just as Nayir is about to give up in frustration, her body is discovered by anonymous desert travelers. But when the coroner's office determines that Nouf died not of dehydration but from drowning, and her family seems suspiciously uninterested in getting at the truth, Nayir takes it upon himself to find out what really happened to her.This mission will push gentle, hulking, pious Nayir, a Palestinian orphan raised by his bachelor uncle, to delve into the secret life of a rich, protected teenage girl—in one of the most rigidly gender-segregated of Middle Eastern societies. Initially horrified at the idea of a woman bold enough to bare her face and to work in p ... Read more

Moderate wear.No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts.

With a demon's eye for the details that make life worth noticing, Joshua Ferris tells a true and funny story about survival in life's strangest environment--the one we pretend is normal five days a week.416 p.

Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy

Feuerstein, Georg

Tight, unmarked copy.Tantra—often associated with Kundalini Yoga—is a fundamental dimension of Hinduism, emphasizing the cultivation of "divine power" (shakti) as a path to infinite bliss. Tantra has been widely misunderstood in the West, however, where its practices are often confused with eroticism and licentious morality. Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy dispels many common misconceptions, providing an accessible introduction to the history, philosophy, and practice of this extraordinary spiritual tradition. The Tantric teachings are geared toward the attainment of enlightenment as well as spiritual power and are present not only in Hinduism but also Jainism and Vajrayana Buddhism. In this book, Georg Feuerstein offers readers a clear understanding of authentic Tantra, as well as appropriate guidance for spiritual practice and the attainment of higher consciousness.314 p.
