London: Verso, June 1984. Trade Paperback. Very Good+. Foxing to top edge and inside of covers. Text pristine. Spine straight, very tight and uncreased. Light rubbing to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 214 pages. Translation of Ibn Khaldoun : naissance de l'histoire, passe? du Tiers monde. This intriguing study opens with a general description of the Maghreb in the later Middle Ages, focusing primarily on mercantile trade, especially in gold, and the social and economic structures of tribal life. He unravels Khaldun's fascinating biography: born in 1332 to an aristocratic family in Tunis, he had an extraordinary diplomatic and military career in the turbulent wars and politics of Western Islam, withdrew to a desert retreat in 1375, and finally emigrated to Egypt. Lacoste then turns his attention to Ibn Khaldun's Universal History, arguably the greatest single synthesis produced by medieval thought anywhere. His account of Ibn Khaldun's thought is a remarkable, sympathetic work of… Read more

Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xxiv + 418 pages. Greenland: a remote, mysterious island five times the size of California but with a population of just 56,000. The ice sheet that covers it is 700 miles wide and 1,500 miles long, and is composed of nearly three quadrillion tons of ice. For the last 150 years, explorers and scientists have sought to understand Greenland--at first hoping that it would serve as a gateway to the North Pole, and later coming to realize that it contained essential information about our climate. Locked within this vast and frozen white desert are some of the most profound secrets about our planet and its future. Greenland's ice doesn't just tell us where we've been. More urgently, it tells us where we're headed.In The Ice at the End of the World, Jon Gertner explains… Read more

Not from a library. Not a remainder. Not clipped. 404 pages. This is the record of the 10th Pugwash Symposium, which brought together participants from the United States, the Soviet Union, England, France, West Germany, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Israel and India. The discussions that resulted include both "hard" technical analysis of specific weapons systems and assessments of long-range tendencies of a necessarily general and exploratory nature. One goal of the symposium was to trace the paths by which known and foreseeable technologies could be transferred both into weapons and into arms control devices. The first of the book's four sections is concerned with applications of new technology to ballistic-missile guidance and to nuclear weapons, including the possible military significance of the (as yet… Read more

Nonsense, responds the author, former Chief of the CIA Counterterrorism Center's Bin Laden Station. Scheuer argues that Islamist insurgency (and not "terrorism") is the core of the conflict between the U.S. and Islamist forces, who in places such as Kashmir, Xinjiang, and Chechnya are "struggling not just for independence but against institutionalized barbarism."

London: Arrow, 2016. Paperback. First Printing / full number line. Fine. Black remainder dot to bottom edge, otherwise As New. Not from a library. 490 pages. When Tiro, the confidential secretary of a Roman senator, opens the door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning, he sets in motion a chain of events which will eventually propel his master into one of the most famous courtroom dramas in history. The stranger is a Sicilian, a victim of the island's corrupt Roman governor, Verres. The senator is Cicero, a brilliant young lawyer and spellbinding orator, determined to attain imperium - supreme power in the state. This is the starting-point of Robert Harris's most accomplished novel to date. Compellingly written in Tiro's voice, it takes us inside the violent, treacherous world of Roman politics, to describe how one man - clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable - fought to reach the top.

New Delhi: Permanent Black / Ravi Dayal, 2000. Trade Paperback. First Indian Paperback Edition. No additional printings listed. Near Fine. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Rear cover has sticker from Giggles Bookshop and three-inch crease at bottom edge. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 393 pages. An ethnography in narrative form. Combining shrewd observations with painstaking historical research, Ghosh serves up skeptics and holy men, merchants and sorcerers. Some of these figures are real, some imaginary, but all emerge as vividly as the characters in a great novel. In an Antique Land is an inspired work that transcends genres as deftly as it does eras, weaving an entrancing and intoxicating spell. The book contains two narratives. The first, an anthropological narrative, revolves around two visits made by Ghosh to two villages in the Nile Delta, while he was writing his doctoral dissertation (1980–81) and again a few years later (1988). In the second… Read more
