Book Titles & Summaries

Ice-Brook Violet
After years of working for a London-based NGO, distributing books and opening schools in impoverished countries, Violea Ender returns, in poor health, to her Oregon roots: a large grain and filbert farm inherited from her widowed mother. She expects to find herself alone there, for the custom farmer and his housekeeper wife are retiring, but gradually finds that her kind mother has left the farm a haven for a few others. These exceptional figures have puzzling connections to the farm, secrets known to her mother but which she must now discover piecemeal. Her startling encounter with another recovering inhabitant bears shocking consequences, which severely tax her highly unstable condition. Out of touch with farming practices and trying to heal herself, she must rely on the imperturbable Norwegian attached to the farm; an independent, knowledgeable, taciturn man, once a giant presence in her unevenly happy childhood. Gradually she reinserts herself in Ender Farm and community life, developing intense and difficult relationships, and very often experiencing setbacks fraught with peril. When her London friend and colleague arrives with her daughter, in the hope of making Violea return to her work, these visitors also become embroiled in the extraordinary life on Ender Farm. At last, one more visitor arrives, with a powerful life-altering influence. Will her profound relationships with the farm and its inhabitants, one especially, prevail over her demanding worldly past?

In Hock: Pawning in America from Independence through the Great Depression
Puncturing the myth of the seamy storefront stocked with stolen watches and overseen by a shifty proprietor, In Hock reveals that pawnshops have long played an integral role in Americans’ economic lives.
The definitive history of pawnbroking in the United States from the nation’s founding through the Great Depression, this volume demonstrates that the practice was inextricably intertwined with the rise of capitalism. The class of working poor begotten by this economic tide could make ends meet, Wendy Woloson argues, only by regularly visiting pawnshops to supplement their inadequate wages. Nonetheless, businessmen, reformers, and cultural critics berated the shops for promoting vice and used anti-Semitic stereotypes to cast their proprietors as greedy and cold-hearted. Parsing and subverting these caricatures, Woloson shows that pawnbrokers were in fact shrewd businessmen, often from humble origins, who honed sophisticated knowledge of a wide range of goods and their values in different markets.
In the process, she paints a resonant portrait of the generations of Americans whose struggle for economic survival often depended on an institution that has remained, until now, woefully misunderstood.

The Water Bearer
This is the story of an unusual man who in his early years makes the life-altering decision to give himself over
to the service of humanity and the troubled planet. In so doing, he regularly sets foot on the shorter paths to death:
regions of growing numbers of oppressed, whose brutal lives he seeks to improve; the constant necessity of his own high exposure; and fierce opposition to the approaching demise of a planet under extreme duress. In his present campaign to bring water to a thirsty and impoverished small country, he takes on both a corrupt government and the ruthless greed of a multinational corporation, both intent upon his final removal. His very public life must unexpectedly accommodate an unavoidable private existence, which leads to both deep aggravation and great personal satisfaction. This is a timely portrayal, broad and sweeping, close and personal, with diverse characters and compelling scenes of human struggle and aggression. Driving psychological elements of passion and compassion, tenderness and rage resonate throughout the story. It is much more than a cautionary tale. Celebrating the miracle of life on the magnificent planet earth, it conveys the positive message of individual value, the urgent message of social and ecological responsibility.

Just cuddle up to a bowl of soup by the fire, watch the telly and stuff the world out there. Or have friends round for lunch and put a panfull of soup on the table surrounded by bread, cheese and beer and let everybody help themselves. In a hurry? Make it instantly from a packet all glutinous and full of strange plasticky vegetables. Or take your time, like I will today and make a big pan full of velvety pumpkin soup for the family tonight.

Zoontologies: The Question Of The Animal
Those nonhuman beings called animals pose philosophical and ethical questions that go to the root not just of what we think but of who we are. Their presence asks: what happens when the Other can no longer safely be assumed to be human? This collection offers a set of incitements and coordinates for exploring how these issues have been represented in contemporary culture and theory, from Jurassic Park and the "horse whisperer" Monty Roberts, to the work of artists such as Joseph Beuys and William Wegman; from foundational texts on the animal in the works of Heidegger and Freud, to the postmodern rethinking of ethics and animals in figures such as Singer, Deleuze, Lyotard, and Levinas; from the New York Times investigation of a North Carolina slaughterhouse, to the first appearance in any language of Jacques Derrida's recent detailed critique of Lacan's rendering of the human/animal divide.

The Baby Bond: The New Science Behind What's Really Important When Caring for Your Baby
Meticulously researched and warmly presented, the most authoritative and persuasive guide to attachment parenting
When it comes to early parenting, scientific evidence points time and again to the bond between parent and child as a critical factor in a baby's health and wellbeing. Backed by more than 1,200 trusted sources, this breakthrough guide reveals the many little-known advantages that only a responsive, nurturing parenting style can pre:
Surprising evidence on the benefits of breastfeeding
How attentiveness and touch impacts permanent brain development in infants
Under-reported facts about how to reduce colic, food allergies, and illness
Why sharing sleep is both safe and natural
How to reduce future teen-year stress by bonding with your young child early
At the forefront of a passionate, growing movement called "attachment parenting," this warmly presented guide is a rare overview of information too often missing from parenting circles, pediatric offices, and financially motivated product promotions.
Why Attachment Parenting?
Cultures around the world that practice more natural forms of parenting have healthier infants who cry much less, toddlers who do not exhibit "terrible twos," generally respectful teenagers, and independent adults who participate in family matters.
A well-controlled study found sleeping outside of the parents' room brought 10.5 times the risk of SIDS as sleeping in the parents' room.
Studies have shown that infants who receive frequent physical affection have lower overall levels of stress.
In the United States and other industrialized countries, the infant death rate for formula-fed infants is twice that of exclusively breastfed babies.

Free Audio Book. Love Smart: Find the One You Want Fix the One You Got
Targeted primarily at single women looking for a clear formula that leads in the direction of marriage, Love Smart also aims to refresh current marriages that feel a bit lacking. Whether readers find it helpful will depend partially on their sense of humor—Dr. Phil titles one chapter "Bag 'em, Tag 'em and Take 'em Home", a pretty fair example of the rest of the jokes and the general attitude of the book's advice.Marriage is what it's about, and the dating game has specific rules that, once learned, any "player" can use to succeed. While not quite as strict as the infamous The Rules, this is a manual that treats marriage as a prize, winnable only by those who regard old-fashioned rules as the only possible set. An early exercise suggests that women make detailed lists of the qualities they're looking for in a mate; five broad categories cover everything from social skills to physical appearance. Once a clear picture is formed of the ideal partner, it all boils down to marketing. Dr. Phil discusses conversation skills such as developing "icebreaker" questions and even digs up some of the old-school techniques that suggest checking headlines just to offer up-to-date topics, and making sure to ask questions about your date, rather than revealing much about yourself. Suggestions for internet dating are included in a separate chapter, and later chapters go into specific questions that cover personal background and relationship history in great detail. The combination of new school humor with old-fashioned advice will appeal to women who are looking for both a plan for partnership and goofy jokes to lighten the pressure. Dr. Phil offers both in spades. Jill Lightner --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Product Description

In Love Smart, Dr. Phil tells people who are dissatisfied with their love lives to stop making excuses and start taking action!

Asterix and the Secret Weapon
The Adventures of Asterix (French: Asterix or Asterix le Gaulois) is a series of French comic books written by Rene Goscinny and illustrated by Albert Uderzo (Uderzo also took over the job of writing the series after the death of Goscinny in 1977). The series first appeared in French in the magazine Pilote on 29 October 1959. As of 2008, 33 comic books in the series have been released.
The series follows the exploits of a village of ancient Gauls as they resist Roman occupation. They do so by means of a magic potion, brewed by their druid, which gives the recipient superhuman strength. The protagonist, the titular character, Asterix, along with his friend Obelix have various adventures. In many cases, this leads them to travel to various countries around the world, though other books are set in and around their village. For much of the history of the series (Volumes 4 through 29), settings in Gaul and abroad alternated, with even-numbered volumes set abroad and odd-numbered volumes set in Gaul, mostly in the village.
The Asterix series is one of the most popular Franco-Belgian comics in the world, with the series being translated into over 100 languages, and it is popular in most European countries.
The success of the series has led to the adaptation of several books into 11 films; eight animated, and three with live actors. There have also been a number of games based on the characters, and a theme park near Paris, Parc Asterix, is themed around the series. To date, 325 million copies of 33 Asterix books have been sold around the world making co-creators Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo France's bestselling authors abroad.
