Book Excerpt :

NATIONAL BESTSELLER NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Renowned activist and public intellectual David Graeber teams up with professor of comparative archaeology David Wengrow to deliver a trailblazing account of human history, challenging our most fundamental assumptions about social evolution--from the development of agriculture and cities to the emergence of "the state," political violence, and social inequality--and revealing new possibilities for human emancipation. For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike--either free and equal innocents, or thuggish and warlike. Civilization, we are told, could only be achieved by sacrificing those original freedoms, or alternatively, by taming our baser instincts. Graeber and Wengrow show how such theories first emerged in the eighteenth century as a conservative reaction to powerful critiques of European society posed by Indigenous observers and intellectuals. Revisiting this encounter has startling implications for how we make sense of human history today, including the origins of farming, property, cities, democracy, slavery, and civilization itself. Drawing on path-breaking research in archaeology and anthropology, the authors show how history becomes a far more interesting place once we learn to throw off our conceptual shackles and perceive what's really there. If humans did not spend 95% of their evolutionary past in tiny bands of hunter-gatherers, what were they doing all that time? If agriculture, and cities, did not mean a plunge into hierarchy and domination, then what kinds of social and economic organization did they lead to? What was really happening during the periods that we usually describe as the emergence of "the state"? The answers are often unexpected, and suggest that the course of human history may be less set in stone, and more full of playful, hopeful possibilities, than we tend to assume. The Dawn of Everything fundamentally transforms our understanding of the human past and offers a path toward imagining new forms of freedom, new ways of organizing society. This is a monumental book of formidable intellectual range, animated by curiosity, moral vision, and a faith in the power of direct action.

Her enraged father has never forgotten. Now, Kane and Siobhan are finally getting married. They only invited a few people—including FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid and her husband Sean Rogan—to celebrate. When Sean and Kane go missing the day before the wedding, Lucy must put her fear aside and work the case. Because someone believes that Siobhan knows where Hestia is ... and will do anything or kill anyone to make her tell the truth.

Book Short Summary:

A New York Times Bestseller The world’s leading intellectual offers a probing examination of the waning American Century, the nature of U.S. policies post-9/11, and the perils of valuing power above democracy and human rights In an incisive, thorough analysis of the current international situation, Noam Chomsky argues that the United States, through its military-first policies and its unstinting devotion to maintaining a world-spanning empire, is both risking catastrophe and wrecking the global commons. Drawing on a wide range of examples, from the expanding drone assassination program to the threat of nuclear warfare, as well as the flashpoints of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Israel/Palestine, he offers unexpected and nuanced insights into the workings of imperial power on our increasingly chaotic planet. In the process, Chomsky provides a brilliant anatomy of just how U.S. elites have grown ever more insulated from any democratic constraints on their power. While the broader population is lulled into apathy—diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable—the corporations and the rich have increasingly been allowed to do as they please. Fierce, unsparing, and meticulously documented, Who Rules the World? delivers the indispensable understanding of the central conflicts and dangers of our time that we have come to expect from Chomsky.

Book Short Summary:

Now in paperback, the updated and expanded edition: David Graeber’s “fresh . . . fascinating . . . thought-provoking . . . and exceedingly timely” (Financial Times) history of debt Here anthropologist David Graeber presents a stunning reversal of conventional wisdom: he shows that before there was money, there was debt. For more than 5,000 years, since the beginnings of the first agrarian empires, humans have used elaborate credit systems to buy and sell goods—that is, long before the invention of coins or cash. It is in this era, Graeber argues, that we also first encounter a society divided into debtors and creditors. Graeber shows that arguments about debt and debt forgiveness have been at the center of political debates from Italy to China, as well as sparking innumerable insurrections. He also brilliantly demonstrates that the language of the ancient works of law and religion (words like “guilt,” “sin,” and “redemption”) derive in large part from ancient debates about debt, and shape even our most basic ideas of right and wrong. We are still fighting these battles today without knowing it.

Book Short Summary:

From the author of the international bestseller Debt: The First 5,000 Years comes a revelatory account of the way bureaucracy rules our lives Where does the desire for endless rules, regulations, and bureaucracy come from? How did we come to spend so much of our time filling out forms? And is it really a cipher for state violence? To answer these questions, the anthropologist David Graeber—one of our most important and provocative thinkers—traces the peculiar and unexpected ways we relate to bureaucracy today, and reveals how it shapes our lives in ways we may not even notice…though he also suggests that there may be something perversely appealing—even romantic—about bureaucracy. Leaping from the ascendance of right-wing economics to the hidden meanings behind Sherlock Holmes and Batman, The Utopia of Rules is at once a powerful work of social theory in the tradition of Foucault and Marx, and an entertaining reckoning with popular culture that calls to mind Slavoj Zizek at his most accessible. An essential book for our times, The Utopia of Rules is sure to start a million conversations about the institutions that rule over us—and the better, freer world we should, perhaps, begin to imagine for ourselves.

Book Short Summary:

Inspired by mysteries that still surround the case explored by Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, We Were Killers Once pits Brigid Quinn against a man who has gotten away with evil for nearly fifty years--and now has his sights on her family. Jeremiah Beaufort has just been released from prison after a very long time and the world has changed. Most importantly, scientific advances have allowed for DNA testing--and the internet has spread the news that there may exist a long-hidden document that will change what is known about not one but two horrific murders. His determination to erase any clue that could put him on death row brings him to Tucson, Arizona, intent on finding a document he believes is in the possession of Carlo Di Forenza, ex-priest, retired professor, and husband of Brigid Quinn. Beaufort's odd behaviour immediately sets off alarms for Brigid, who assumes he is after her for something she did while in the FBI. Brigid's quest to find out what he is after takes her to Florida--only to discover the truth too late to stop Beaufort taking her beloved gentle husband hostage. A high-stakes, incredibly tense stand-off ensues, as Brigid takes extreme measures to return and, she hopes, neutralize Beaufort before he kills Carlo--and without ending up dead herself. Woven into the suspensful plot is Beaufort's own voice, unforgettably unfolding a story of tragedy and evil that imagines a story-behind-the story of the horrific murders that inspired In Cold Blood, a book and a case that continues to fascinate more than fifty years after the event.

Book Short Summary:

Hannah Arendt is one of the most renowned political thinkers of the twentieth century, and her work has never been more relevant than it is today. Born in Germany in 1906, Arendt published her first book at the age of twenty-three, before turning away from the world of academic philosophy to reckon with the rise of the Third Reich. After World War II, Arendt became one of the most prominent—and controversial—public intellectuals of her time, publishing influential works such as The Origins of Totalitarianism, The Human Condition, and Eichmann in Jerusalem. Samantha Rose Hill weaves together new biographical detail, archival documents, poems, and correspondence to reveal a woman whose passion for the life of the mind was nourished by her love of the world.

Book Short Summary:

How war gave birth to revolution in the 19th century The Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 introduced new military technologies, transformed the organization of armies, and upset the continental balance of power, promulgating new regimented ideas of nationhood and conflict resolution more widely. However, the mass armies that became a new standard required mass mobilization and the arming of working people, who exercised a new power through both a German social democracy and popular insurgent French movements. As in the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Paris Commune of 1871 grew directly from the discontent among radicalized soldiers and civilians pressed into armed service on behalf of institutions they learned to mistrust. If this militarized class conflict, the brutality of the Commune's subsequent repression not only butchered the tens of thousands of Parisians but slaughtered an old utopian faith that appeals to reason and morality could resolve social tensions. War among nations became linked to revolution and revolution to armed struggle.

“Meaty, well-written.” —Kirkus Reviews “Timely and informative.” —The New York Times Book Review “By far the best book I have ever read on humanity’s deep history.” —E. O. Wilson, biologist and author of The Ants and On Human Nature Nicholas Wade’s articles are a major reason why the science section has become the most popular, nationwide, in the New York Times. In his groundbreaking Before the Dawn, Wade reveals humanity’s origins as never before—a journey made possible only recently by genetic science, whose incredible findings have answered such questions as: What was the first human language like? How large were the first societies, and how warlike were they? When did our ancestors first leave Africa, and by what route did they leave? By eloquently solving these and numerous other mysteries, Wade offers nothing less than a uniquely complete retelling of a story that began 500 centuries ago.

Book Short Summary:

This early work by James Oliver Curwood was originally published in 1908 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. "The Wolf Hunters" sees an American boy who has become friends with a Native American boy, together they discover a mysterious cabin, and stumble upon a secret that has lain hidden for half a century. "The Wolf Hunters" is the prequel to "The Gold Hunters." James Oliver 'Jim' Curwood was an American action-adventure writer and conservationist. He was born on 12th June, 1878, in Owosso, Michigan, USA. In 1900, Curwood sold his first story while working for the Detroit News-Tribune, and after this, his career in writing was made. By 1909 he had saved enough money to travel to the Canadian northwest, a trip that provided the inspiration for his wilderness adventure stories. The success of his novels afforded him the opportunity to return to the Yukon and Alaska for several months each year - allowing Curwood to write more than thirty such books. Curwood's adventure writing followed in the tradition of Jack London. Like London, Curwood set many of his works in the wilds of the Great Northwest and often used animals as lead characters (Kazan, Baree; Son of Kazan, The Grizzly King and Nomads of the North). Many of Curwood's adventure novels also feature romance as primary or secondary plot consideration. This approach gave his work broad commercial appeal and helped drive his appearance on several best-seller lists in the early 1920s. His most successful work was his 1920 novel, The River's End. The book sold more than 100,000 copies and was the fourth best-selling title of the year in the United States, according to Publisher's Weekly. He contributed to various literary and popular magazines throughout his career, and his bibliography includes more than 200 such articles, short stories and serializations. Curwood was an avid hunter in his youth; however, as he grew older, he became an advocate of environmentalism and was appointed to the 'Michigan Conservation Commission' in 1926. The change in his attitude toward wildlife can be best expressed by a quote he gave in The Grizzly King: that 'The greatest thrill is not to kill but to let live.' Despite this change in attitude, Curwood did not have an ultimately fruitful relationship with nature. In 1927, while on a fishing trip in Florida, Curwood was bitten on the thigh by what was believed to have been a spider and he had an immediate allergic reaction. Health problems related to the bite escalated over the next few months as an infection set in. He died soon after in his nearby home on Williams Street, on 13th August 1927.

Book Short Summary:

First Light launches the Grand Universal Lineage sequence. It explores the dawn of time and how various civilizations that are relevant for us have sought to understand the origin of all. A brief primer on scientific method then helps us appraise science’s best and most convincingly verified creation theory—the Big Bang. We visit some fun facts about our universe, explore some alternative views, and draw important implications from what they tell us. Most importantly, we see why the deep appraisal of such cosmic insights matters. Implicit here is the Oneness perspective that underlies this entire series of volumes, which I enthusiastically believe will help us all move toward a vibrant, healed future. The essence of the unity vision that drives this broader and powerful healing impulse is here.

Book Short Summary:

What we ate, how we ate, and how eating changed during America’s first real food revolution, 1900–1910. Before Julia Child introduced the American housewife to France’s cuisine bourgeoise, before Alice Waters built her Berkeley shrine to local food, before Wolfgang Puck added Asian flavors to classical dishes and caviar to pizza, the restaurateurs and entrepreneurs of the early twentieth century were changing the way America ate. Beginning with the simplest eateries and foods and culminating with the emergence of a genuinely American way of fine dining, Repast takes readers on a culinary tour of early-twentieth-century restaurants and dining. The innovations introduced at the time—in ingredients, technologies, meal service, and cuisine—transformed the act of eating in public in ways that persist to this day. Illustrated with photographs from the time as well as color plates reproducing menus from the New York Public Library’s Buttolph Menu Collection, Repast is a remarkable record of the American palate.

Will they be able to discover what true love is really like, or will the war tearing countries apart rip that opportunity from their grasp before they can venture forward in faith? Ember and Virginia are sisters living with their family in southwestern Montana with dreams that go far beyond the small farming town and its inhabitants. Ember Hirschel has little interest in men of any kind since her last attempted relationship ended in shambles--that is, until she meets the charming Lieutenant LaHaye, who quickly steals her heart and leaves her wondering what a future would be like with him by her side. But life in 1941 is not easy, especially for a young couple whose lives could easily be torn apart by the war raging on between nations. When disaster strikes and leaves Ember with little to cling to, will her faith and trust in God bring her and the people she cares about into a safety net of happiness and peace? Though she loves her job as a nurse in her small hometown, Virginia Hirschel longs for excitement and maybe even a handsome young beau to bring some adventure to her rather dull life. When her qualifications as a nurse are called into question, Virginia begins to wonder if she was ever meant to care for the sick and dying. And when a handsome young soldier makes it clear he wishes to court her, Virginia couldn't imagine a more tempting prospect. But maybe Virginia's plan for her life isn't the same as God's plan for her future. Accepting and acknowledging that reality are two different things. And when faced with a crisis in her new relationship, will Virginia choose to persevere in faith or let go of the dreams she once thought impossible?

Their golden age spanned many millennia and brought their philosophy of peaceful co-existence and technological exchange to many sentient species and solar systems in their spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. Their march towards universal self-determination was shattered by an invading menace from the Large Magellanic Cloud. The clash of equally ancient but diametrically opposed cultures left the Reiign, a race genetically cleansed of most aggressive tendencies for many thousands of years, facing annihilation. Desperate situations breed desperate measures A group of scientists escaped to the last frontier of the galaxy. In a last ditch attempt to save their empire and culture, they devised a stratagem to defeat the invaders. Their plan, a 50,000 year genetic breeding project, results in the creation of the perfect warrior, a biological construct bred for aggression and genetically optimized for war; a being sociologically conditioned to the shedding of blood on a mass scale, the ultimate killing machinethey created MAN!

Book Short Summary:

I was twenty-one years old when I wrote this book, and I decided to write this book because I felt like some people might feel like they were fighting lifes battles alone. I wanted people to know that theyre not alone and that people are there for them. I wanted to fill people in on what they couldnt see around them, and I also wanted to let people know that their voice is important and that they define their own voice but no one else can speak for them in all honesty. In this book, I talked about how humans are only humans, so they shouldn't be ashamed to cryman or woman. Crying doesn't make you weak; it means your human. Its actually worrisome if you dont cry.

Book Short Summary:

This fifth volume of wartime speeches and broadcasts from the Nobel Prize–winning prime minister brings the close of WWII to electrifying life. Legendary politician and military strategist Winston S. Churchill was a master not only of the battlefield, but of the page and the podium. Over the course of forty books and countless speeches, broadcasts, news items, and more, he addressed a country at war and at peace, thrilling with victory but uneasy with its shifting role on the world stage. In 1953, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for “his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” During his lifetime, he enthralled readers and brought crowds roaring to their feet; in the years since his death, his skilled writing has inspired generations of eager history buffs. This fifth and final volume in the series of the great orator’s wartime speeches, broadcasts, public messages, and other communications take readers through the momentous final events of World War II, culminating in Allied victory. Passionate, inspiring, informative, and amusing, no fan of WWII military history should be without this comprehensive, fascinating series.

The humorous dichotomy between the east and west coast ways of life entertained me throughout the book. The story portrays the many levels of love with fascinating characters and situations. Great read, had to finish it in one sitting to find out what the end of the story would hold!" **** Reviewed by Kam Aures for Rebecca’s Reads (08/11) " . . . I enjoyed watching the transformations of the characters in the book and the relationships that were established. The ending of “The Dawn of Silva” left an opening for a follow-up novel which I believe is in the works.

Book Short Summary:

The Dawn of Magick is the first story of Donothor. The tragic fantasy chronicles the lives and deeds of many ilks of the world Sagain. Threads of fate and Magick intertwine the doomed world of sorcery with three other worlds. When the story begins, Sagain is a pastoral mundane world dominated by preternatural beings called Old Ones. Nature's most powerful forces foment a cataclysm and kindle the flicker of Magick. The flicker grows into a blaze and creates great artifacts. The power of Magick descends along family lines. As sorcerers live longer and grow more powerful, greed and competition lead to conflict. Orders of Light and Dark Sorcery choose leaders and allies, create citadels and seven fantastic wonders, and rip Sagain and its people through their ageless conflict. Spells cast by avaricious sorcerers bring forces of evil to Sagain. This begins a conflict that stretches across space and time. Powerful spells enable the imprisonment of consummate evil and facilitate the escape of a fortunate few from the doomed world. What is the source of Magick? What are the powers of the thirteen and two staves? What roles have the mysterious Old Ones, the old wanderer Confusious, Iyaca Vassi, and the Orders of Light and Dark Sorcery in the story? Does only evil lurk behind the dark walls of Koorlost, the citadel of Dark Sorcery? Does only good reside within the alabaster walls of the Laurels and its Tower of Radiance, the citadel of Light Sorcery? Are dragons, the great wyrms of the skies, good or evil? What threads connect four worlds? Ripples that began long ago in a doomed world create great waves in Donothor, Parallan, and...a blue world. The story continues in Deathquest to Parallan, the Orb of Chalar, the Death of Magick, and the Chalice of Mystery.

Book Short Summary:

A persuasive primer on police abolition from two veteran organizers “One of the world’s most prominent advocates, organizers and political educators of the [abolitionist] framework.” —NBCNews.com on Mariame Kaba In this powerful call to action, New York Times bestselling author Mariame Kaba and attorney and organizer Andrea J. Ritchie detail why policing doesn’t stop violence, instead perpetuating widespread harm; outline the many failures of contemporary police reforms; and explore demands to defund police, divest from policing, and invest in community resources to create greater safety through a Black feminist lens. Centering survivors of state, interpersonal, and community-based violence, and highlighting uprisings, campaigns, and community-based projects, No More Police makes a compelling case for a world where the tools required to prevent, interrupt, and transform violence in all its forms are abundant. Part handbook, part road map, No More Police calls on us to turn away from systems that perpetrate violence in the name of ending it toward a world where violence is the exception, and safe, well-resourced and thriving communities are the rule.

Book Short Summary:

Why do we die? Why will your life eventually come to an end, even without fatal injury or illness? As far as any of us stop to ponder this question, two alternative answers are common. Either we, and all living things, die because something has gone wrong since human life first came into being, or we die because all living things die in evolutionary and generational succession. The first of these answers is a widespread Christian one based on an understanding of the Fall. The second is the picture given by science. The Dawn of Death charts a course between these two answers as to why we die. It examines in depth the Bible passages and the science that lie behind them. The author draws a carefully considered conclusion and reflects on how this fits within Christian belief.

Book Short Summary:

In this collection of essays written over a period of almost forty years, Raymond Aron explores the rise of nationalism in Europe through the two world wars and the subsequent disintegration of her empires. With a richness of detail and sweeping breadth of historical examples, he chronicles and analyzes the history of the opposite ideological extremes of Fascism and Marxism and their descent into totalitarianism via secular religiosity. Aron also examines French imperialism through the examples of Algeria and Indochina, as well as America's role as an "imperial republic" during and after World War II. Aron was never orthodox in his ideology; neither his republican political penchants nor his dialectical intellectual orientation ever gained the upper hand over his devotion to empirical reality. The result here is an intellectual history that seems less concerned about where it falls on the political spectrum than about getting it right.

Book Short Summary:

Looking at a neglected period in the social history of modernization, David Levine investigates the centuries that followed the year 1000, when a new kind of society emerged in Europe. New commercial routines, new forms of agriculture, new methods of information technology, and increased population densities all played a role in the prolonged transition away from antiquity and toward modernity. At the Dawn of Modernity highlights both "top-down" and "bottom-up" changes that characterized the social experience of early modernization. In the former category are the Gregorian Reformation, the imposition of feudalism, and the development of centralizing state formations. Of equal importance to Levine's portrait of the emerging social order are the bottom-up demographic relations that structured everyday life, because the making of the modern world, in his view, also began in the decisions made by countless men and women regarding their families and circumstances. Levine ends his story with the cataclysm unleashed by the Black Death in 1348, which brought three centuries of growth to a grim end.
