A Lesson Before Dying

Gaines, Ernest J.

Tight copy with tanned pages.A Lesson Before Dying, is set in a small Cajun community in the late 1940s. Jefferson, a young black man, is an unwitting party to a liquor store shoot out in which three men are killed; the only survivor, he is convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Grant Wiggins, who left his hometown for the university, has returned to the plantation school to teach. As he struggles with his decision whether to stay or escape to another state, his aunt and Jefferson's godmother persuade him to visit Jefferson in his cell and impart his learning and his pride to Jefferson before his death. In the end, the two men forge a bond as they both come to understand the simple heroism of resisting—and defying—the expected.Ernest J. Gaines brings to this novel the same rich sense of place, the same deep understanding of the human psyche, and the same compassion for a people and their struggle that have informed his previous, highly praised works of fiction.256 p.

Front flap of the dustjacket has a crease.This book was a two-year collaboration between two Davids. David Galbenski conceived the project, defined the trends, and edited many drafts, while David Barringer organized, wrote, and designed the book. The project changed as the global marketplace changed, especially during 2008 and early 2009. In the end, the intent of the authors was not to present an exhaustive portrait of a still landscape but to explore overarching trends in a fast-moving world. In the next few years, there will surely be remarkable developments to add to a revised edition. The purpose of this book is to inspire readers to think in new ways about law and business. As an entrepreneur, David Galbenski is excited by today's trends and what they promise for the future. The legal industry is becoming unbound from its limitations. It is flexing its muscles and expanding its vision. Those individuals who are currently highly successful in the legal industry might have cause to be ambivalent about the ... Read more

The Official Soviet Mosin-Nagant Sniper Rifle Manual

Gebhardt, James F. (U.S. Army Ret.) Translator

Tight, unmarked copy.The Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle is the most basic of the Russian and Soviet small arms. Before being replaced by the snayperskaya vintovka Dragunova (SVD) in the 1960s, the selected, scoped version of the rugged Mosin-Nagant was the principal sniper rifle of the Soviet army and of many Eastern European militaries. It is still used in many conflicts because of the large numbers in which it was produced. This manual, available in English for the first time, is entirely devoted to the sniper version of the 1891/30 Mosin-Nagant rifle with PU scope. It covers disassembly and assembly, cleaning and lubricating, and other general technical information, but its real value lies in the sniper-specific tactics it contains. Instructions and illustrations are included for the following topics: sniper firing positions; battlefield observation points; range estimation; how to fire at stationary, fleeting, moving and aerial targets; two ballistic tables; and much more. This is a must-have reference fo ... Read more

Tight copy with a cocked spine.It's what everyone wants to know-do I survive death? Where do I go? What do I become? Now, Rinpoche Gaelek, expert in the ancient teachings of reincarnation, helps us examine the four questions most of us ask ourselves: Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How do we get there?Good Life, Good Death is organized around these four questions and their surprising answers. Rinpoche Gaelek lays out his own personal experience and techniques, tested over the course of twenty-five hundred years, that teach us how to take control over our lives and our fears, now and for the future. He writes about the physical reality of dying; the mental reality; when death actually occurs (it's not when the heart and brain stop); where we go after death; and how we can know ahead of time where we're going. He demonstrates how Einstein's theories can help us understand Buddhist mechanics of living and dying. For the first time in English, he also shares stories from great masters who ... Read more

DJ has some soiling and edge wear, spine cocked, corners rubbed.A treasure trove of World War II-era political cartoons by the creator of The Cat in the Hat. For decades, readers throughout the world have enjoyed the wonderful stories and illustrations of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. But few know Geisel's work as a political cartoonist for the New York daily newspaper PM during World War II. In these trenchant cartoons, Geisel captured the Zeitgeist--especially the attitudes of the New Deal liberals who read PM--with signature Seussian flair. Dr. Seuss Goes to War features handsome, large-format reproductions of almost 200 of the best of Geisel's cartoons from this time. The cartoons savage Hitler, Japan, Stalin, Mussolini, and "isolationist" leaders such as Charles Lindbergh. They exhort readers to give full support to the war effort, put up with shortages, buy U. S. savings bonds, and help control inflation. They are sharply critical of anti-Semitism and anti-black racism--and, shockingl ... Read more

Jack's Book: An Oral Biography Of Jack Kerouac

Gifford, Barry & Lee, Lawrence

Damp stains on some pages.Here, in what has become a classic of its kind since its publication in 1978, is the fascinating story of an American literary legend, recorded through the voices of the friends and lovers of Jack Kerouac, "King of the Beats." Authors Barry Gifford and Lawrence Lee retraced Keoruac's life at home and on the road, and talked with the prophets, musicians, poets, socialites, and working people who knew Jack Kerouac. Some are famous (Allen Ginsberg, Gore Vidal, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, among others), some are not (Jack's boyhood buddies, his lovers, his barroom companions). All have contributed to a remarkably vibrant, riveting portrait of a life. We see Jack at Columbia University and on the scene of Greenwich Village; speeding across the tarmac of America with Neal Cassidy ("Dan Moriarty" in Kerourac's classic novel, On the Road); at home with his possessive mother; in California, drinking wine and talking Buddhism; and finally, in Florida, where his life ends tragically at age ...

Moderate wear.In the heart of Russia, old ways of perceiving the spirits of home and nature still prevail. Fairy stories, folk art, and calendar customs carry hints of the old gods and offer a now rare way of linking human life to the landscape. This is as true for city dwellers and villagers, for the Russian soul is open to the power of myth and the mysteries of the universe. This book explains how Russia's concept of soul ("dusha") and sensitivity to the landscape extends to archaeologists, scientists, and doctors in Russia, who retain an open-minded approach and a keen interest in psychic phenomena, along with folk traditions and faith healing. Author Cherry Gilchrist has traveled often to Russia and researched its traditional lore, gaining knowledge she interweaves into this book. She blends that first-hand knowledge with serious research to paint a lively picture of these remarkable magical traditions and their enduring power.188 p.

Moderate wear."One of those who has been warning me of [a coming crisis] for a long time is Paul Gilding, the Australian environmental business expert. He has a name for this moment-when both Mother Nature and Father Greed have hit the wall at once-'The Great Disruption.' "-Thomas Friedman in the New York Times It's time to stop just worrying about climate change, says Paul Gilding. We need instead to brace for impact because global crisis is no longer avoidable. This Great Disruption started in 2008, with spiking food and oil prices and dramatic ecological changes, such as the melting ice caps. It is not simply about fossil fuels and carbon footprints. We have come to the end of Economic Growth, Version 1.0, a world economy based on consumption and waste, where we lived beyond the means of our planet's ecosystems and resources. The Great Disruption offers a stark and unflinching look at the challenge humanity faces-yet also a deeply optimistic message. The coming decades will see loss, suffering, and conflic ... Read more

Twenty years after leaving Africa, the suspicious death of her husband and a sudden turn of events involving a white African elephant force Lill to return. Within hours of landing in Africa, Lill is faced with the reality of who and what she really is and discovers those whispered childhood stories of witchdoctors and the Mbali jungle are far more than simple superstitions. Voodoo and the ability to see souls sets her life in motion – and if she's not careful, sorcery and black magic will end it.Softcover 28 ... Read more
