Description:
New York: Vintage, October 2014. Trade Paperback. 6th printing. Fine. Small chip to rear corner of spine tail, otherwise As New. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 157 pages. With passion and curiosity, Alan Lightman explores the emotional and philosophical questions raised by recent discoveries in science. He looks at the dialogue between science and religion; the conflict between our human desire for permanence and the impermanence of nature; the possibility that our universe is simply an accident; the manner in which modern technology has separated us from direct experience of the world; and our resistance to the view that our bodies and minds can be explained by scientific logic and laws. Behind all of these considerations is the suggestion--at once haunting and exhilarating--that what we see and understand of the world is only a tiny piece of the extraordinary, perhaps unfathomable whole.

New York: William Morrow, October 2001. Hardcover. First Edition (stated) / full number line. Interior pristine. Spine straight and very tight. Jacket clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 323 pages. For thirty-seven days after the disputed presidential election of 2000, the nation watched as George W. Bush and Al Gore slugged it out in the swamp. David A. Kaplan goes behind the scenes of the sanctimony and machinations. With his mordant wit and incisive storytelling, Kaplan tells us how -- contrary to popular belief -- the Supreme Court's ruling for Bush was not a foregone conclusion and why the dissenting justices thought, until the last second, they could lure the one equivocating colleague they'd derisively nicknamed "Flipper." We're in the room when Gore decides that, more than any great lawyer, the one person he needs in Recountland is . . . Erin Brockovich. We learn which Bush partisan covertly marionetted the strings behind Katherine Harris. And we're treated to… Read More

Corners and spine ends bumped. Not from a library. xxiv + 1004 pages. An anthology of science fiction stories originally published in 1946.

Anthony Boucher described it as "the one anthology unarguably essential to every reader."Contents: Introduction to the First Edition (1946) essay by Raymond J. Healy and J.

New York: Putnam, August 2006. Hardcover. First Edition / full number line. Fine book in a Fine jacket. Spine tail slightly bumped, otherwise As New. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 343 pages.When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they instantly galvanize--but to do what? They know nothing about it: the what, where, or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Impossible, unless-- The Afghan is Izmat Khan, a five-year prisoner of Guantanamo Bay and a former senior commander of the Taliban. The Afghan is also Colonel Mike Martin, a twenty-five-year veteran of war zones around the world--a dark, lean man born and raised in Iraq. In an attempt to stave off disaster, the intelligence agencies will try to do what no one has ever done before--pass off a Westerner as an Arab among Arabs.

Basil Davidson's landmark work presents the inner growth of Africa and its worldwide significance, the internal dynamic of its old civilizations and their links with Asia, Europe and America, as well as the development of specific areas, tribes and cultures. From accounts of the days of the green Sahara and the great iron age, the earliest Portuguese colonization, the coming of slavery and the subsequent legacy of violence and mistrust, the growth of Islam in the north and the cults of the Congo, the sophistication of art and architecture, and the pattern behind social and tribal mores, the entire picture of the continent emerges.
