DJ has some edge wear, corners rubbed, previous owner's name on endpaper. Are you prepared for the storms of life? We are often times more concerned with our ship's appearance that we are with what lies below the waterline - the all-important soul that acts as a keel to keep us afloat should the waters turn tempestuous. In this gracefully written book, Gordon MacDonald navigates seldom charted depths and steers us toward the disciplines, convictions, silence, beauty, and spirit that feed and prepare the soul to recognize and receive God's blessings. 232 pages

Sidetracked

Henning Mankell

Good reading copy.From the dean of Scandinavian noir, the fourth riveting installment in the internationally bestselling and universally acclaimed Kurt Wallander series, the basis for the PBS series staring Kenneth Branagh.In the award-winning Sidetracked, Kurt Wallander is called to a nearby rapeseed field where a teenage girl has been loitering all day long. He arrives just in time to watch her douse herself in gasoline and set herself aflame. The next day he is called to a beach where Sweden's former Minister of Justice has been axed to death and scalped. The murder has the obvious markings of a demented serial killer, and Wallander is frantic to find him before he strikes again. But his investigation is beset with a handful of obstacles—a department distracted by the threat of impending cutbacks and the frivolity of World Cup soccer, a tenuous long-distance relationship with a murdered policeman's widow, and the unshakably haunting preoccupation with the young girl who set herself on fire. Fascinating a ... Read more

All Quiet on the Western Front

Erich Maria Remarque

Good reading copy.Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other--if only he can come out of the war alive."The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first trank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure."THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW304 p.

Bottom corner of front cover and some pages have a crease. This book describes the philosophy and methods of a holistic approach to limited space gardening that produces so much food that, within three years, you will be able to produce 85% of the food needs for a family of four on less than a quarter-acre, plus earn over $10,000 in cash annually - and you will be able to do this in less time than an equivalent job would require, netting the equivalent of $50/hour for your labor. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying seeds, saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, farm planning and much more. Since self sufficiency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. 148 pages

Moderate wear. Personally inscribed by the author on the title page.Historically, the language and concepts within clinical theory have been steeped in linear assumptions and reductionist thinking. Because the essence of psychotherapy involves change, Psyche's Veil suggests that clinical practice is inherently a nonlinear affair. In this book Terry Marks-Tarlow provides therapists with new language, models and metaphors to narrow the divide between theory and practice, while bridging the gap between psychology and the sciences. By applying contemporary perspectives of chaos theory, complexity theory and fractal geometry to clinical practice, the author discards traditional conceptions of health based on ideals of regularity, set points and normative statistics in favour of models that emphasize unique moments, variability, and irregularity. Psyche's Veil further explores philosophical and spiritual implications of contemporary science for psychotherapy. Written at the interface between artistic, scientific an ... Read more

Moderate wear.In this engaging new book, Bradford Martin illuminates a different 1980s than many remember—one whose history has been buried under the celebratory narrative of conservative ascendancy. Ronald Reagan looms large in most accounts of the period, encouraging Americans to renounce the activist and liberal politics of the 1960s and '70s and embrace the resurgent conservative wave. But a closer look reveals that a sizable swath of Americans strongly disapproved of Reagan's policies throughout his presidency. With a weakened Democratic Party scurrying for the political center, many expressed their dissatisfaction outside electoral politics. Unlike the civil rights and Vietnam era protesters, activists of the 1980s often found themselves on the defensive, struggling to preserve the hard-won victories of the previous era. Their successes, then, were not in ushering in a new era of progressive reforms but in effecting change in areas from professional life to popular culture, while beating back an even ... Read more

Ennesima: Here, Now and Elsewhere. Site-Specific and Thereabouts

Massimo Bartolini, Eva Fabbris, Letizia Ragaglia, Nicola Ricciardi, Marco Scotini

Front cover and first 50 pages have a crease top corner. Text in Italian and English. The English term "site-specific" is generally used to indicate an intervention conceived for a given context, or for insertion in a precise place. The book Qui, ora e altrove: site-specific e dintorni (Here, now and elsewhere: Site-specific and Thereabouts) examines site-specificity in the widest and most literal sense of the term, through the study by Marco Scotini entitled "Politics of place. Towards an Italian site-oriented narrative" to introduce the theme, followed by critical texts by Nicola Ricciardi on the work of Alberto Garutti ("Garutti perspective: city walls, sky, weather"), and by Lorenzo Benedetti and Letizia Ragaglia, respectively on the works of Monica Bonvicini and Luca Vitone ("NO ON" and "The engagement of the subject/viewer in the works of Luca Vitone"), and the conversation between Massimo Bartolini and Eva Fabbris ("WATGO"), all focusing on the site-specific works made by artists for "Ennes ...

Tight, unmarked copy.We've all heard the statement (and maybe even said it ourselves), "It's all relative." But are moral truths relative? If that is the case, how then can there be universal human rights? McAndrew's book argues that if there are universal human rights, then moral truths also must be absolute.Society has moved from a worldview that accepted the existence of absolute truth to a world of relative truth. This paradigm shift was primarily motivated by a desire to render philosophy more scientific by eliminating metaphysical theories. But the twentieth century witnessed another shift after the Second World War. Out of that bloody conflict arose the recognition for the need to articulate human rights and hence the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, universal human rights make no sense in a morally relative world. A relative theory of truth is inconsistent with morally condemning acts of others, no matter how heinous.Why It Doesn't Matter What You Believe If it Isn't True challenges tho ... Read more

Moderate wear.With scientific research, her own chemistry background, and the traditional diets of our not-so-distant ancestors as her guide, Dee McCaffrey casts new light on an age-old wisdom: Eating foods in their closest-to-natural form is the true path to sustained weight loss and, in fact, the remedy for almost any health problem.

The Science of Skinny aims to create a space for change--to educate and enlighten readers on the value of proper nutrition so that they can find a healthier and more life-affirming relationship with their bodies and the food they eat.Offering serial dieters a healthy and lifelong way to shed pounds--and keep them off-- The Science of Skinny includes: kick-start plans; guidelines for family- and kid-friendly meals; quick and delicious menus and more than 50 recipes; shopping lists and eating-on-the-go tips; e ...

Miernik Dossier

McCarry, Charles

Moderate wear. McCarry’s first book, The Miernik Dossier, originally published in 1973, is a riveting and imaginative tale in which a small group of international agents embark on a car trip in a Cadillac, from Switzerland to the Sudan. "Charles McCarry is the best modern writer on the subject of intrigue," wrote P.J. O'Rourke, and Time magazine has declared that "there is no better American spy novelist." Related as a collection of dossier notes written by the five characters, The Miernik Dossier reveals a complicated web in which each spins his or her own deception: each is a spider, and each is a spy. The Miernik Dossier is a thoroughgoing masterpiece. 256 pages

Nazraeli Press One Picture Book No. 50 No. 12 of 500 copies printed Print signed on Verso From the publisher: "When Eskine Caldwell died in 1987, his place in the history of pop culture was already assured. The bare-woods house outside the small town of Moreland, Georgia where Caldwell was born in 1903, serves as the subject of Rob McDonald's book. 'Walking around the house, looking at the shelves of Caldwell's books, the case of memorabilia, I tried to forget about the celebrity. I found myself reflecting on how surely place shapes identity, how it inspires a worldview - how memory and imagination begin before we know it.'"
