Their faithful adaptation combines an already-chilling tale with truly haunting artwork.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the story of a respectable London doctor who ends up leading a dreadful double life—as a doctor, and as a cold-blooded murderer. Fans of Stevenson’s original novel and new readers will be riveted by this fascinating moral thriller.

Did you ever lose a friend over an unpaid debt? Get stuck with a houseguest who has no intention of moving out? Quarrel with a relative over use of the family car? For those who follow Toler and Hutchison’s wise counsel, these common disputes need never happen. Through dozens of true stories, they show how “putting it in writing”—creating a clear written agreement—prevents the kinds of bitter misunderstandings that can destroy relationships and devastate families. Here’s detailed advice on how to choose the right words—and enforce them, too. To make it really easy, they provide perforated forms with model agreements for lending money or property, adult children moving home, sharing a pet, taking care of aging parents, and more.

NEW IN PAPERBACK

The Real History of the American Revolution A New Look at the Past by Alan Axelrod Ask most Americans why their forefathers started the Revolution, and they’ll likely mention “no taxation without representation” or the belief in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as inalienable rights. But that’s just the start of the story, as historian Alan Axelrod so brilliantly shows in this eye-opening book. Axelrod offers a fascinating examination of what really caused the breach across the Atlantic and how the revolutionary movement began. The American Revolution brought something unique to the world: an entirely new kind of nation, founded on a set of ideas. In engrossing, conversational prose, Axelrod brings the birth of America to life by digging beneath the classically taught history to explore everything from little-known facts to alternate realities, along with the eyewitness testimony, pop culture, and art of the period.

The Real History of the Cold War A New Look at the Past by Alan Axelrod The newest entry in Alan Axelrod’s engaging, successful Real History series—and the only current illustrated book on a misunderstood and mysterious topic. From the fall of Nazi Germany to the fall of the Berlin Wall, a cold war raged between the US and the Soviet Union. Though not a shot was fired, the hostility between the two superpowers threatened the globe with nuclear annihilation. Axelrod reveals the intriguing, suspenseful true story behind this globespanning battle of wills, and as always, he’s created a study that’s authoritative, comprehensive, and a pleasure to read. Judiciously, incisively, he probes the pivotal events of the era: the Marshall Plan; the iron curtain; the Berlin airlift; the Cuban missile crisis; the rise and fall of Joesph McCarthy; the Korean War; the Vietnam War; the arms race. Rarely seen illustrations, detail-packed sidebars, maps, stats, quotes, alternate takes, and “reality checks” to popular myths make this a work general readers will turn to and enjoy.

Baroque & Rococo by Marco Bussagli & Mattia Reiche An era of exuberant creativity is the focus of this magnificently illustrated, competitively priced new art book. Baroque art was characterized by unbridled emotion, intricate decorative flourishes, and a dramatic use of light, reaching its summit in works such as Bernini’s magnificent altarpiece, The Ecstasy of St. Theresa. Over time, this robust genre evolved into the more ornate and sensuously playful Rococo, a style epitomized by the opulent paintings of Watteau. This beautifully produced exploration of both movements guides the reader through more than a century of art history—exploring the lives and works of sculptors such as Bernini, painters such as Watteau, Boucher, Rubens, and Hogarth, and architects such as Christopher Wren

From Realism to Art Nouveau by Laura Lombardi Trace the roots of modern art, beginning with Realist paintings such as Courbet’s The Stonebreakers and Millet’s The Gleaners— works that shocked mid–9th-century Paris with their unblinking depiction of the lives of the poor. As changing styles in art reflected the enormous changes taking place in the wider world, Realism was followed in rapid succession by Naturalism, the Pre-Raphaelites, Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism, Aestheticism, Symbolism, and Art Nouveau. From Realism to Art Nouveau beautifully captures this turbulent era with an incisive text and breathtaking reproductions of works by Manet, Rossetti, Sargent, Monet, Seurat, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Rodin, Klimt, and others.

Neoclassicism & Romanticism by Silvestra Bietoletti Here is a rich, informative introduction to an exciting period in art history. Neoclassicism, which arose during the 18th century’s Age of Enlightenment, was inspired by the rationality, simplicity, and grandeur of ancient Greece and Rome. In fact, many of its greatest works reflect archaeological discoveries of the time. In reaction to this austere style, Romanticism sought to re-infuse art with passion, drama, and mysticism. Here are the key masterpieces of both schools—works by Canova, Constable, Copley, David, Blake, Delacroix, Géricault, Turner, Ingres, and others—complete with biographies of the artists, and accompanied by a text that illuminates the ideas and events that shaped an era of artistic ferment.

Learning from the Heart Lessons on Living, Loving, and Listening by Daniel Gottlieb, author of Letters to Sam In the nearly 30 years since the accident that made this radio personality and columnist a quadriplegic, Dan Gottlieb has developed a finely tuned quality of awareness that most people never achieve. He became an outsider among us— “ like a foreign correspondent,” as he puts it—and here, Dan shares his insights into what it means to be human.

About the Author DANIEL GOTTLIEB, a practicing psychologist and family therapist, serves as the host of Voices in the Family , an award-winning mental health call-in show on Philadelphia’s much-respected public radio station, WHYY. He is the author of three previous books, including Letters to Sam and Voices in the Family . He lectures locally and nationally on a variety of topics affecting the well-being of people, families, and the larger community.

Written with humor, honesty, a gift for storytelling, and breathtaking compassion, Learning from the Heart looks at what divides as well as unites us: the problems of family life; difficulties confronting today’s parents; challenges faced by the disabled and the aging; and issues of injustice that affect the way we understand the world and our lives.

The Art of Overeating A Bellyful of Laughs About Our Food-Phobic Culture by Leslie Landis Fed up with fat-phobia? Welcome to The Art of Overeating , the anti-diet bible that’s chock-full of not-too-weighty wisdom. It flies in the face (not to mention the sucked-in gut) of our calorie-obsessed culture. Above all, it finds the funny bone in our culinary excess while offering reassurance that there’s no such thing as too much food.

November 2009

Witty text and imaginative illustrations encourage us to dig in and enjoy our meals, while imparting essential tips such as “The best way to eat healthy is to eat in large quantities. How else can you be sure that you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need?” Interesting and informative food facts plus quotes from sources as disparate at George Bernard Shaw, Tommy Lasorda, Julia Child, and Mae West ( “I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the numbers you get in a diamond” ) enliven the pages. The author’s wry style makes it clear she’s not endorsing gluttony but instead reminding us to have a little fun with our fries.

144 PAGES (ALL IN COLOR) 6 X 8 1/2 HUMOR/GENERAL

For those who love laughter, life, and food, here’s a treat worth indulging in—and it doesn’t even contain a single calorie!

h A quirky send-up of America’s favorite form of self-indulgence: Overeating h Eye-popping graphics and wacky page design make this book an ideal gift for gourmets and gourmands alike

About the Author LESLIE LANDIS has been a practicing clinical psychologist since 1999. In that capacity she has encountered many other people who eat, spend, avoid, deny, and defy, and has gained many insights through their experiences. She lives in southern CALIFORNIA with her husband Martin.

PRAISE FOR THE ORIGINAL EDITION OF BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE:

“Original, remarkable, and finally heartbreaking . . . impossible to put down.” —The New York Times

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: The Illustrated Edition An Indian History of the American West by Dee Brown, with a foreword by Hampton Sides For the first time: a full-color illustrated edition of Dee Brown’s classic history of the American West!

September 2009

Eloquent, heartbreaking, and meticulously documented, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee follows the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the 19th century. Upon its publication in 1970, the book was universally lauded and became a cultural phenomenon that proved instrumental in transforming public perceptions of manifest destiny and the “winning” of the West.

$40.00 (CANADA $52.00) HARD 978-1-4027-6066-2

Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown’s work highlighted the voices of those American Indians who actually experienced the battles, massacres, and broken treaties. Here is their view of the events that ultimately left them demoralized and defeated, including: the Battle of Sand Creek; Red Cloud’s War; the Battle of the Little Bighorn; and, of course, the Wounded Knee Massacre. Crazy Horse, Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, and Spotted Tail—the great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Cheyenne, and other tribes—come to life through their own words and formal portraits.

560 PAGES (ALL IN COLOR) 9 X 10 HISTORY/UNITED STATES/19TH CENTURY CARTON QUANTITY: 6 STERLING INNOVATION RIGHTS: US/CAN

Now, hundreds of illustrations—including maps, photographs, sketches, and paintings—enhance Brown’s masterpiece, making it even more vivid and personal. In addition to the incredible images, this edition also features relevant excerpts from such highly acclaimed Native-American themed books as Where White Men Fear to Tread by Russell Means, Mystic Chords of Memory by Michael Kammen, and Lakota Woman by Mary Crow Dog, as well as all-new essays by contemporary historians and Native American leaders like Elliott West and Joseph Marshall III.

Camera A History of Photography from Daguerreotype to Digital

by Todd Gustavson and the George Eastman House Cameras, and what they capture, forever changed our perception of the world, and of ourselves. Few inventions have had the impact of this ingenious, elegant, and deceptively simple device. This gorgeous cornerstone volume, created in collaboration with the world-famous George Eastman House, celebrates the camera and the art of the photograph. It spans almost two hundred years of progress, from the first faint image ever caught to the instantaneous pictures snapped by today’s state-of-the-art digital equipment. The informative narrative by Todd Gustavson traces the camera’s development, the lives of its brilliant but often eccentric inventors, and the artists behind the lens. Images and highly descriptive captions for more than 350 cameras from the George Eastman House Collection, plus more than 100 historic photos, ads, and drawings, complement the text. A foreword by the George Eastman House Director Anthony Bannon, and insightful essays by Steve Sasson, inventor of the digital camera, and Alexis Gerard, visionary founder and president of Future Image Inc., completes this illuminating study of one of the greatest modern technological achievements.

h A stunning volume from the George Eastman House, the most notable name in photography h The definitive book on the history of the camera

About the Author TODD GUSTAVSON is Curator of Technology at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. He is responsible for the cataloging, storage, and maintenance of one of the world’s largest collections of photographic and cinematic equipment, containing more than 20,000 artifacts.

B Is for Bad Poetry by Pamela August Russell Forget Shakespeare. Don’t count on Donne. Shelley and Keats: banished! And there’s absolutely no poet laureate from the golden or any other age. So fawning PhDs in love with little-understood verses by long-dead writers should go elsewhere. This is poetry for the rest of us— bad poetry !

October 2009

Pamela Russell’s unexalted (but thoroughly hysterical) poems mock, chide, accuse, tease, joke, undermine, point, and laugh at the world around us—and at anything that takes itself too seriously. Her non-canonical oeuvre includes: Tea For Two (A Tragedy); Nietzsche And The Ice-Cream Truck; Capitalism Can Fall Not Like I Fell For You; Inappropriately Touched By An Angel; Love Is Like A Toilet Bowl; and many more.

About the Author PAMELA AUGUST RUSSELL started off her writing career in third grade when she won a statewide short-story contest. Sometime later, she moved west to San Francisco where she created the Better Off Dead Poets Society with her partner Alison Gallant. Together, they made their way through the spoken word circuit and garnered a cult-like following. Russell was also a regular reader and host at the infamous Sister Spit in San Francisco. She has published short stories and poetry in several anthologies, including Virgin Territory and Nothing Moments. Russell lives in LOS ANGELES. This is her first book of poetry.

About the Author A. T. MANN is a noted astrologer, architect, artist, and prolific author. His books include The Divine Life: Astrology and Divination (2002) and The Future of Astrology (2004).

There are many tarot sets on the market—but not one like this! The first thing you’ll notice about this unique book-and-card set is the deck’s square shape, which allows each card to be positioned facing not just two, but all four cardinal points of the compass: this provides readings of great depth and accuracy. Then, the original design eliminates the conventional human figures of the tarot, replacing them with mandala images that aid meditation. What’s more, the 22 major arcane signs are divided into three groups corresponding to the signs of the zodiac, the elements, and the planets. This spiritually aware approach to the tarot provides a remarkable new set of tools for understanding the forces that shape our lives.

Atheism by Julian Baggini Is a life without religion one without values or purpose? Julian Baggini emphatically says no. He sets out to dispel the myths surrounding atheism and to show how it can be both a meaningful and moral choice. He directly confronts the failure of officially atheist states in the twentieth century, and presents an intellectual case for atheism that rests as much on reasoned and positive arguments for its truth as on negative arguments against religion.

His epistles laid the foundations on which later Christian theology was built. In his original introduction to the disciple’s life and thought, E. P. Sanders, whose research on Paul has significantly influenced recent scholarship, pays equal attention to analyze Paul’s gospel and to explore his fundamental—and sometimes contradictory—convictions.

The Crusades by Christopher Tyerman Crusading fervor gripped Europe for more than 200 years, creating one of the most extraordinary episodes in world history.

Bringing together issues of colonialism, cultural exchange, and economic exploitation, scholar Christopher Tyerman challenges our assumptions about the Crusades and encourages us to re-evaluate the relationship between past and present.

History by John H. Arnold Do historians reconstruct the truth—or simply tell stories? Professor John Arnold suggests they do both, and that it’s the balance between the two that matters. In a work of metahistory (the study of history itself), he takes us from the fabulous tales of Greek Herodotus to the varied approaches of modern-day professionals. Through fascinating and particular examples—including a medieval murderer, 17th-century colonist, and ex-slave—Dr. Arnold illuminates our relationship to the past by making us aware of how the very nature of “history” has changed.

Philosophy by Edward Craig How should we live? What really exists? And how do we know for sure? In this lively and engaging study, Edward Craig argues that learning philosophy is merely a matter of broadening and deepening what most of us do already. But he also shows that philosophy is no mere intellectual pastime: thinkers such as Plato, the Buddhist sages, Descartes, Hobbes, Hume, Hegel, Darwin, Mill, and de Beauvoir responded to real needs and events—and many of their concerns shape our daily lives.

Galileo by Stillman Drake In a startling reinterpretation of the evidence, Stillman Drake advances the hypothesis that Galileo’s condemnation by the Inquisition was caused not by his defiance of the Church, but by the hostility of contemporary philosophers. Galileo’s own beautifully lucid arguments are used to show how his scientific method—based on a search not for causes but for laws—was utterly divorced from the Aristotelian approach to physics. His methodology had a definitive impact on the development of modern physics, and led to a final parting of the ways between science and philosophy.

About the Author STILLMAN DRAKE was Professor of the History of Science at the University of Toronto. His translations of Galileo’s scientific works include Cause, Experiment, and Science (1981) and Telescopes, Tides, and Tactics (1983).

Gandhi by Bhikhu Parekh Gandhi (1869–1948) was one of the few men in history to fight simultaneously on moral, religious, political, social, economic, and cultural fronts—and to succeed in his struggle. Bhikhu Parekh offers a brief but focused look into Gandhi’s life and thought, outlining his major philosophical insights, cosmocentric anthropology, spiritual view of politics, and theories of oppression, nonviolent action, and active citizenship. He also considers how Gandhi’s success was limited by his lack of coherent theories of evil and of state and power, and how his hostility to modern civilization impeded his appreciation of its complexity.

Economics by Partha Dasgupta Why are some lives—and some countries—so wealthy, and others so deprived? This apparently simple question is the starting point of Partha Dasgupta’s contemporary, intelligible introduction to economics and how it shapes our lives. Combining examples from everyday life with a global approach that considers not just the economics of the West but that of the world’s 2.4 billion poor, Dasgupta reveals how economics can give us deep insight into some of our most intractable problems—and provide solutions to them, too.

He is also a fellow of the British Academy and Royal Society as well as a Foreign Member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and former president of the Royal Economic Society and European Economic Association.

Globalization by Manfred Steger For many scholars and political activists, “globalization” encompasses a variety of economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental practices that have accelerated in the last few decades. Manfred Steger presents globalization in plain, readable English as a multifaceted system encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life. In addition to unpacking the term’s various dimensions, he investigates whether globalization is “good” or “bad”: a question hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms, and on the streets.

Logic by Graham Priest Logic is often perceived as having little to do with the rest of philosophy, and even less to do with real life. In this engaging and accessible introduction, Graham Priest shows how wrong that conception is. He explores the philosophical roots of the subject, explaining how modern formal logic deals with issues ranging from the existence of God and the reality of time to paradoxes of probability and decision theory. Along the way, Priest lays out the basics of formal logic in simple, nontechnical terms.

Mathematics by Timothy Gowers Mathematics is a subject we are all exposed to in our daily lives, but one that many of us fear. Timothy Gowers’s entertaining overview of the topic explains the differences between what we learn at school and advanced mathematics, and helps the math phobic emerge with a clearer understanding of such paradoxical-sounding concepts as “infinity,” “curved space,” and “imaginary numbers.” From basic ideas to philosophical queries to common sociological questions about the mathematical community, this book unravels the mysteries of space and numbers.

About the Author TIMOTHY GOWERS is the Rouse Bell Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University and a recipient of the Fields Medal for Mathematics for “the most daring, profound, and stimulating research done by young mathematicians.”

Postmodernism by Christopher Butler Christopher Butler challenges and explores the key ideas of postmodernists, as well as their engagement with theory, literature, the visual arts, film, architecture, and music. By treating artists, intellectuals, critics, and social scientists “as if they were all members of a loosely constituted and quarrelsome political party,” he creates a vastly entertaining framework in which to unravel the mysteries of the “postmodern condition” from the politicizing of museum culture to the cult of the politically correct.

Social & Cultural Anthropology by John Monaghan & Peter Just Drawing on intriguing, vivid examples from their own research in Indonesia and Mexico, John Monaghan and Peter Just examine ways in which anthropology has advanced our understanding of human society and culture. They also provide a concise and accessible account of the “big” questions that have traditionally concerned anthropologists: What is unique about human beings? How are groups of people—family, class, tribe, nation— formed and maintained? What is the nature of belief, economic exchange, the self?

About the Author A professor at Vanderbilt University, JOHN MONAGHAN has carried out many ethnographic research projects among the indigenous peoples of Mexico and Guatemala. PETER JUST teaches anthropology at Williams College and has done extensive research on the Dou Donggo of Sumbawa Island, Indonesia.

The British Invasion

November 2009

The Music, the Times, the Era

$27.95 (CANADA $35.95) HARD 978-1-4027-6976-4

by Barry Miles, author of The New York Times bestseller Hippie In 1964, North America had a second revolution—but this time we welcomed the British! That year, four mop-tops known as The Beatles made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, ushering in a new era of British music, film, fashion, and art. This richly illustrated and informative volume celebrates the pivotal cultural moment when the United States took on a British accent. The huge influx of talent from across the pond included not only the The Beatles, but also The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Them (and Van Morrison), The Yardbirds, The Who, and, of course, The Rolling Stones. But the invasion wasn’t only musical: Peter O’Toole, Julie Andrews, Sean Connery, and Michael Caine made a splash in Hollywood, while films like Goldfinger, Alfie and What’s New, Pussycat? topped box-office charts. The Avengers became cult TV, and Carnaby Street defined hip style, turning Mary Quant, Twiggy, and Jean Shrimpton into fashion icons. Filled with photographs that capture one of the most exciting artistic periods in recent history, this is an evocative, irresistible look back.

Not only do they heighten the impact of Fussell’s remarkable critical interpretation, they help us fully grasp the true scope of this aptly named and catastrophic war.

Foolish Words The Most Stupid Words Ever Spoken by Laura Ward A wickedly funny collection of gaffes, blunders, and faux pas committed by those in the public eye…who unfortunately (for them) also caught the public’s ear. These delicious verbal blunders come from many sources. There are politicians with foot-in-mouth disease, rock stars and actors who should have stuck to their songs and scripts, hapless lawyers caught in the act of strangling common sense, inept businessmen who make mind-bogglingly bad predictions, and more. The speakers regretted it…but readers will LOVE it!

Eat Great, Lose Weight and Lower Blood Sugar by Doug Varrieur, foreword by David Mulholland, MD Doug Varrieur lost more than 100 pounds…and kept it off, by identifying and eliminating the enemy: Sugar! Now he reveals his proven plan for going from fat to skinny—easily, effortlessly, and quickly.

Most important, dieters will learn how to wean themselves off sugar and carbs and “eat themselves skinny” with recipes for flavorful dishes such as Chicken Cacciatore with Spaghetti Squash, Baked Shrimp with Crabmeat Stuffing, Roast Cajun Pork Loin with Creamed Spinach Alfredo with Mushrooms, Strawberry Shortcakes, Crêpes, and more!

“If such incredible progress has been possible in psychology, medicine and physics, why can’t it be possible in spirituality as well? If we can define laws that govern human emotions or quantum forces, why can’t we define the laws that govern spiritual forces….The time is right to dare to think about making that progress.” —Dr. Paul DeBell

Decoding the Spiritual Messages of Everyday Life How Life Shows Us What We Need to Know by Dr. Paul DeBell How can science help us develop our deeper spiritual potential? This unique approach to the question, from a trained psychiatrist, combines spirituality with key concepts from modern psychology to help us overcome challenges and become more perceptive, creative, and fulfilled.

October 2009

Dr. DeBell draws on such rational tools as cognitive-behavioral and Piaget developmental psychology to detect and decode feedback from the deeper dimensions in life. Contemporary, down-to-earth, and extremely practical, it shows how to bring spiritual intention to bear on daily routines and specific challenges, such as anxiety or depression.

The Language of Zen Heart Speaking to Heart by Richard Burnett Carter “God,” “Zazen,” “Void,” “Koan”: We may think we understand these words. But what exactly do they mean in the world of Zen Buddhism? Westerners can have difficulty grasping the language in the way the original Zen writers intended. This lyrical inquiry examines the complexity of these terms, expanding your mind and opening it to the possibilities of Zen. The first section provides brief explanations; the second part goes into greater depth, with some words repeated and others new. Why can we recognize the words “dharma” and “karma” and not Mahayana, the Greater Vehicle? In what way is the Buddha like a jumping frog?

About the Author RICHARD BURNETT CARTER received his PhD in philosophy from Columbia University. After 30 years of teaching in the Western tradition, he made the life-changing decision to move to Kyoto and study at the International Research Institute for Zen Buddhism, attached to Hanazono University. He is the author of numerous academic journal articles and books.

Living at the End of Life A Hospice Nurse Addresses the Most Common Questions by Karen Whitley Bell, R.N. What’s going to happen? How will we manage? There are things I still want to do. I’m afraid… As death approaches, both patient and family must cope with grief, pain, and seemingly unanswerable questions. It’s a time of challenge, of concerns. But, as hospice nurse Karen Whitley Bell reminds us, it also offers an opportunity to explore and rediscover the fuller, richer meaning of life.

About the Author KAREN WHITLEY BELL, RN is a hospice nurse with over fourteen years of experience. She lives in SEATTLE, where she advocates for the rights of the dying and the advancement of hospice care.

Drawing on her years of experience, Bell has created a comprehensive, insightful guide to every aspect of hospice care and the final stages of life. She discusses the physical, emotional, and spiritual journey a dying person goes through; care-giving during this difficult period; closure, and loss and the lessons it teaches us. In addition to her warm, yet knowledgeable voice, readers get firsthand accounts of experiences in hospice care, making Living at the End of Life accessible, reassuring, and indispensable.

h As the population ages, more and more families will face the need for hospice care h Heart-warming personal stories are interspersed throughout

Why a Curveball Curves The Incredible Science of Sports Foreword by Robert Lipsyte, edited by Frank Vizard

Special Bonus! A book purchase includes a one-year subscription to Popular Mechanics magazine

Sports. They get our blood pumping and our hearts racing. Fans scream and cheer as their favorite athletes run, throw, pedal, dive, or swing their way to victory. But what makes an athlete successful? Why do some players excel when others fall behind?

August 2009

In Why a Curveball Curves , the experts at Popular Mechanics , along with top athletes, coaches, and sports journalists, explore the science behind sports. Fluid dynamics, biomechanics, and technology determine everything from speed in cycling to protection in football to performance measurement in all sports. This book is designed for both the player and the fan, helping athletes become better-prepared and giving enthusiasts a more complete understanding and appreciation of competition. The issues discussed range from Tiger’s swing to Lance’s legs, from gene doping to the physics of why a seemingly straight kick curves drastically just before its target—in other words, how to bend it like Beckham—plus so much more.

The Boy Scientist 160 Extraordinary Experiments & Adventures by The Editors of Popular Mechanics Science has never been so much fun! The Boy Scientist offers all the vintage appeal of Popular Mechanics ’s popular Boy Mechanic series combined with daring adventures in the laboratory. Taken from the turn-of-the-twentieth-century issues of Popular Mechanics magazine, these 160 experiments— based on chemistry, math, and physics—carry on the Popular Mechanics ’s tradition of making science engaging and entertaining. And even though technology has changed, and our knowledge of how things work has grown, the underlying scientific principles behind these activities remain sound. The projects include constructing a homemade mariner’s compass; microscope without a lens; telescopic rangefinder; figuring out the height of a tall tree with the help of the sun; magnetizing watches and metal tools; crystallizing minerals in the lab; and building a simple radio transmitting set. Plus, there are thought-provoking experiments with gravity, pressure, and vacuums, and information on carrying out all these activities safely. As always in the series, charming illustrations throughout add to the nostalgic appeal. This classic collection is the perfect gift for every budding young mad scientist!

Live & Learn: Expressive Drawing A Practical Guide to Freeing the Artist Within by Steven Aimone The many people who long to draw—but feel too intimidated to try—will rejoice at the wonderful first entry in this brand-new creative series. Written by arts educator Steven Aimone, it’s packed with solid, friendly, hands-on instruction, as well as inspiring images, and backed by the trusted AARP name. Aimone teaches an accessible style called expressive drawing that emphasizes line and mark, rather than rendering a specific object, which for many people, can create barriers to self-expression. Exercises start off simple and quick, encouraging readers to work on instinct and feeling, while the later ones focus on detail and refinement. The book features hundreds of images of work by well-known artists from Debuffet to Jim Dine—and each chapter includes a profile of someone who came to drawing late in life and achieved recognition.

38 Paper Animals to Copy, Cut & Fold by Hiroshi Hayakawa In origami, a flat piece of paper is folded to create a dimensional object. Similarly, in traditional Japanese kirigami, paper is folded, cut, and unfolded to reveal complex patterns—like a paper snowflake. Here, author Hiroshi Hayakawa has ingeniously combined these two techniques to create a charming menagerie of 38 animals, from flocks of sheep and swirling dragons to stampeding ostriches and pandas in a bamboo grove. Full-size templates are provided to photocopy onto the card stock of your choice. And for added whimsy, readers can download a fence pattern or textured patterns at www.larkbooks.com. Each project is introduced with a humorous limerick and supported by colorful, modern photography.

Born and raised in Japan, HIROSHI HAYAKAWA moved to the United States in 1991 to attend the Columbus College of Art and Design. After earning BFAs in Photography and Fine Arts, he received his MFA in Photography at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Today, he teaches drawing and mixed-media photography.

Build Fun Paper Cameras Take Eye-Catching Pinhole Photos by Justin Quinnell Even in the age of digital, we can have plenty of creative fun the low-tech (and low-cost) way: by building cool paper cameras and exploring the fascinating world of pinhole photography. Justin Quinell takes photography back to its roots by demonstrating how to create attractive pinhole cameras—that actually work. Instead of a lens, these cameras have a very tiny hole that “focuses” every point of light passing through it onto paper, thus imprinting the image permanently. A CD, included with the book, contains seven templates for making the cameras; the guide provides directions and advice on shooting successful, artistic pinhole photographs in many different conditions. Both beginning and experienced photographers will find these eye-opening!

h A unique take on cameras that will appeal to anyone interested in photography h The cameras really work and use standard 35mm film

About the Author JUSTIN QUINNELL is an expert on pinhole photography, and his quirky, experimental, and dramatic photos are regularly featured in international exhibits and galleries. Often unique and humorous, his images are taken with pinhole cameras that he builds and places in unusual locations such as inside someone’s mouth looking out, or using techniques such as six-month exposures. He teaches at the university level in the United Kingdom and was a consultant on the 2009 film The Brothers Bloom , which features Rachel Weisz as a pinhole photographer.

Black + White Pipeline Converting Digital Color into Striking Grayscale Images by Ted Dillard The fourth in Ted Dillard’s Pipeline series—cutting-edge books that detail digital imaging in the Adobe Photoshop darkroom—explores the most popular, time-honored photographic form of expression: the blackand-white photograph.

November 2009

Dillard examines Ansel Adams’s legendary Zone System as the foundation of black-and-white photography, and applies these tried-and-true fundamentals to the powerful imaging tools available in Adobe Camera RAW. He explains how to translate traditional darkroom techniques into the digital medium, and how the newest generation of digital tools offers more control, increased power, and greater potential for expressing artistic vision.

224 PAGES (ALL IN COLOR) 8 1/2 X 10 PHOTOGRAPHY/REFERENCE

Above all, Dillard creates an intuitive and streamlined workflow that gets the photographer from capture to print while creating the highest-quality digital image. This provides the framework beginning digital photographers need to create the kind of black-and-white photos they envision. Black + White Pipeline is a comprehensive resource for the photographic artist who wants to combine the beauty of traditional black-and-white with today’s most influential digital equipment.

The Titanic Experience The Legend of the Unsinkable Ship by Beau Riffenburgh Hailed as “unsinkable,” the Titanic was the world’s biggest ship and the ultimate in seafaring luxury. Yet within five days of setting off on its maiden voyage, it sank to the bottom of the sea, taking the lives of more than 1,500 passengers. Nearly a century later, the Titanic remains the worst seafaring disaster in history.

August 2009

As the blockbuster film proved, the Titanic ’s tragic tale—rich in romance, intrigue, heroism, greed, wealth, and class—continues to grip the public’s imagination. While dozens of books have charted the ship’s all-too-short life, this remarkable volume stands apart from the rest. It’s the first to contain 30 fascinating facsimile items of Titanic memorabilia, including tickets, letters, telegrams, menus, original plans, and blueprints—as well as two stunning gatefolds and 200 photographs of the ship and the wreck, taken with underwater equipment.

64 PAGES (200 COLOR & B/W PHOTOS) 11 3/4 X 10 1/4 HISTORY/WORLD

The Treasures of the Impressionists

157

Includes rare facsimile memorabilia

by Jonathan Kear No other movement has had as great an impact on art in the last 200 years, nor been as popular with museum goers, as the Impressionists. But the road to acceptance was long and hard. This breathtaking oversize volume—filled with fabulous facsimile artifacts—looks at the journey these great painters endured to establish themselves in the art world and gain the respect of critics and public alike. Follow the path of the Impressionists from the early encounters between such luminaries as Monet, Renoir, Manet, Degas, and Bazille as they converged on Paris to study at the academies, to their first exhibitions, to the later landscapes and portraits. This beautifully illustrated book places the art in its historical context, analyzes the techniques, focuses on the major painters and on the female Impressionsists, explains how their work influenced later generations, and even reveals the artists’ loves and personal battles. This is a must-have anthology for any art lover.

The amazing memorabilia includes: • A permit issued to Gustave Courbet during the time of the Paris Commune • Newspaper reviews • Extracts from Manet’s and Sisley’s sketchbooks • Renoir’s palette list • An article by Charles Baudelaire on the Impressionists • Plus: posters, cartoons, illustrated letters, sketches and preparatory drawings, catalog excerpts, photographs, and more!

The Essential Gnostic Gospels Including the Gospel of Judas, the Gospel of Thomas, & the Gospel of Mary by Alan Jacobs Gnostics were condemned as heretics by the early Church and many of their writings burned.

These authoritative translations present nearly two dozen Gnostic works— including the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and The Gospel of Thomas—in an inspiring collection sure to appeal to modern spiritual seekers.

August 2009

Did Jesus visit Tibet, Nepal, northern India, and Kashmir during the 19 “missing years” not accounted for in the New Testament? If so, it would have the most far-reaching spiritual implications. This remarkable book takes an impartial look at the extensive evidence—in Islamic, Indian, and Tibetan sources, as well as the modern Aquarian Gospel and the controversial writings of the Russian explorer Nicolai Notavitch—to find a definitive answer to this tantalizing question.

The Secret Founding of America The Real Story of Freemasons, Puritans, & The Battle for The New World by Nicholas Hagger

About the Author

Ask most Americans where the country’s origins lie and they’ll point to the Mayflower and its settlers—whom we often think of as the earliest arrivals to our shores. But something existed even before that: Jamestown. Drawing on original findings and an in-depth understanding of the political and philosophical realities of the time, The Secret Founding of America charts the connections between secret societies and libertarian ideals, explains the influence of the German Illuminati, and shows the hand of Freemasonry at work at every turning point in America’s history, from the Civil War to the Cold War to today’s global struggles for democracy. This authoritative, accessible, and absorbing history takes a fresh look at the past to reveal the truth about the founding of America.

NICHOLAS HAGGER has lectured at universities around the world; written for the London Times ; and written more than 20 books of history, literature, and philosophy, including a study of the founding, rise, and fall of civilizations. He has appeared frequently on television and radio and in newspapers, speaking on the founding of America.

Vendetta High Art and Low Cunning at the Birth of the Renaissance by Hugh Bicheno

About the Author HUGH BICHENO has had careers as an academic, an intelligence officer, and a freelance kidnap and ransom negotiator in South America. He now devotes himself to writing about men at war, and co-authored the best-selling Rebels and Redcoats , written in conjunction with Richard Holmes.

In Italy, the Renaissance was more than a time of sweeping cultural advancement; it was also an age of nearly continuous military conflict and vicious personal feuds between powerful public figures. A lifelong vendetta pitted two of Italy’s most prominent condottieri , or mercenary warlords, against each other in a struggle that moved from the battlefield to the political halls of power to the papacy itself. Federigo da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino, and Sigismondo Malatesta, “the Wolf of Rimini,” were more than ruthless generals; they were cultured patrons of the arts who nonetheless took their rivalry to bloody excess. Here their story is set against the rich backdrop of 15th-century Italy, a sweeping epic of nobility and war, betrayals and vengeance.

Sisters in Arms British Army Nurses Tell Their Story by Nicola Tyrer The amazing experiences of the Queen Alexandra nurses during World War II form one of the greatest adventure stories of modern times, yet until now they’ve remained largely untold. Thousands of middle-class girls, barely out of school, were plucked from sheltered backgrounds, subjected to unimaginably tough training regimes, and sent out to experience the harshest conditions of the fighting services. Over 400 nurses died, torpedoed in hospital ships, bombed in field hospitals, or murdered in Japanese prison camps. Dozens won medals for gallantry. From the beaches of Dunkirk, to Singapore and D-Day, they saw it all. This is their story.

Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain In 1914, just as war was declared, 20 year-old Vera Brittain was preparing to study at Oxford. Four years later, her life—and that of her whole generation— had been irrevocably changed in a way that no one could have imagined in the tranquil pre-war era. Testament of Youth is Brittain’s account of how she lost the man she loved, nursed the wounded, survived those agonizing years, and emerged into an altered world. A passionate record of a lost generation, it made Brittain one of the best-loved writers of her time. It still retains the power to shock, move, and enthrall readers today.

The Politics of Hope The Words of Barack Obama On the road to the White House, Barack Obama succeeded in breaking barriers and bringing together an often-fragmented population through his speeches, interviews, and words. He revealed an outstanding ability to express the thoughts and aspirations of the whole nation in a language that is populist yet intelligent, clear yet literary.

The Politics of Hope celebrates Obama’s immense rhetorical power and ability to inspire, convince, and unite—a skill that took him from “the backyards of Des Moines” to the Oval Office. Covering the whole of his career and featuring iconic as well as less well-known speeches, this collection captures Obama’s great passion for language and reveals the hopes and dreams of the world’s most powerful man.

September 2009

Stories and insights from the Buddha combine with magnificent imagery in this essential, inspirational collection.

How can we enable developing nations to improve their standard of living, while curbing global greenhouse-gas emissions?

England’s Last War Against France Fighting Vichy 1940–1942 by Colin Smith The last shots fired between England and France weren’t during the Napoleonic Age, but rather during World War II, when Vichy, France was left unoccupied by the Nazi regime in return for their collaboration. For more than two years, from the summer of 1940 through November of 1942, British forces engaged the Vichy French on land, sea and air. Thousands of lives were lost, and the history of this conflict was buried— until now. Through painstaking historical research, historian Colin Smith throws back the veil of secrecy to detail this last bloody conflict between modern Europe’s great powers.

Queens Consort England’s Medieval Queens by Lisa Hilton Occupying a unique position in the mercurial, often violent world of medieval state-craft, England’s medieval queens were elemental in shaping the history of the monarchy and the nation. Lisa Hilton’s meticulously researched new work explores the lives of the 20 women crowned between 1066 and 1503. She reconsiders the fictions surrounding well-known figures like Eleanor of Aquitaine, illuminates the lives of forgotten queens such as Adeliza of Louvain, and shows why they all had to negotiate a role that combined tremendous influence with terrifying vulnerability. The result is a provocative and dramatic narrative that redefines English history.

Globalising Hatred The New Antisemitism by Denis MacShane Denis MacShane, a British MP and chairman of the All-Party Commission of Enquiry into Anti-semitism, argues that we are now facing an ideological assault based on hatred of Jews that threatens universal values, world peace, and even attempts to fight poverty and environmental change. MacShane considers how anti-Semitism has become a linking mechanism between different extremisms; how it operates in national party politics and in the European Parliament; and how Holocaust denial has hardened into an organized ideological position. Globalising Hatred is both a cri de coeur for a new tolerance and an attempt to throw light on a form of hatred that mobilizes politics across many continents.

An Officer’s Manual of the Western Front 1914-1918 Edited by Dr. Stephen Bull The Great War was a ferment of new ideas and weapons, from gas and flame throwers to super-heavy artillery, concrete bunkers, tanks, and aircraft. Meanwhile, older methods, such as machine guns and armor, were deployed in innovative ways. All these developments were documented in contemporary publications and manuals. This compendium of extracts and illustrations covers the trench experience, giving not only a popular nostalgic view of the “war to end wars,” but a rounded picture of how it was.

About the Editor DR. STEPHEN BULL is the Curator of the Museum of Lancashire in Preston. He has written two major volumes on arms and armor and best-selling volumes on trench warfare and World War II infantry tactics.

100 Chinese Characters Language, Art and Symbols from the Land of the Dragon by Ni Yibin Chinese characters captivate as much with their artistic expressiveness as with their fascinating layers of meaning: they are written reflections of a unique and beguiling culture. Drawing upon the latest scholarship, this book gathers 100 of the most significant sinographs, placing them within their historical, artistic, and cultural contexts. Each word is traced through the ages, from picture drawings to multifaceted modern characters, and every entry explores the characters’ significance in Chinese culture, from words such as dragon, phoenix, mountain, and heaven to abstract concepts of love, truth, wisdom, and luck. Superb calligraphy accompanies the text–often shown full-page for impact—along with lavish reproductions of Chinese brush paintings, scrolls, ceramics, and textiles.

h Silk cover with gold blocking and clear PVC dust jacket h Much more than a book about language: the characters are windows into Chinese culture and history h Reveals some of the most appealing intricacies of this ancient language

About the Author NI YIBIN is a former Assistant Professor of Chinese Art and Culture at the National University of Singapore. He is now a freelance writer and journalist who has contributed to numerous publications, including The Seventy Wonders of China and China (Duncan Baird, 2005).

The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus by Mario Reading A breathtaking work from one of the world’s most renowned experts on Nostradamus.

October 2009

Best-selling author Mario Reading has produced the first major re-evaluation of the seer’s entire body of prophecies for 300 years—and it finally resolves the last great mystery of Nostradamus. While the Prophecies have transfixed us for centuries (only the Bible has been printed more times) a crucial question has lingered: why did Nostradamus not declare the dates on which his predictions would come about?

$29.95 (CANADA $38.95) HARD 978-1-4027-7171-2

The Complete Prophecies has the answer: Nostradamus concealed nothing, for the information is right there in the text. He gave to each of his prophetic verses—ten volumes of 100 each—an index number. As Mario Reading reveals in this ground-breaking new analysis, in these numbers lie the true key to the years of the prophecies’ fulfillment. It’s an eye-opening interpretation that no one should miss. What this new interpretation of the Prophecies says about our future: • 2015: The world narrowly escapes famine • 2022: The abdication of Charles III of England • 2032: The birth of the third “Antichrist”

h A stunning interpretation of one of the best-selling books in publishing history h With this work, Mario Reading transforms Nostradamus scholarship by proving, once and for all, the viability of the seer’s own dating system h The author’s Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies for the Future sold over 50,000 copies worldwide

Tao Te Ching on the Art of Harmony The New Illustrated Edition of the Chinese Philosophical Masterpiece Translated by Chad Hansen Although written more than 2,500 years ago and within a radically different culture, the Tao Te Ching ’s concepts and teachings have become more influential in the West than ever before. Laozi, the Chinese sage and founder of Taoism, sets out a path (tao) that allows us to tune in to the nature of the universe. His axioms are intended to help us achieve transcendence and a life of integrity and balance: they explore the importance of male and female complementary qualities while praising self-knowledge and criticizing rational understanding. Among his insights are the beliefs that flexibility and suppleness are superior to rigidity and strength, and that self-absorption and self-importance are vain and destructive. This illustrated edition of a classic work is an essential addition to any home library of the world’s classic philosophical texts.

Fans of the hard facts will welcome this engaging follow-up to Discarded Science and Corrupted Science. Grant takes a hard and lively look at pseudoscience, speculating on whether it’s just entertaining folly or (as many scientists believe), a threat to civilization. He touches on New Age twaddle, from Deepak Chopra to The Secret; the socalled power of crystals; crypto-creatures; the “UFO phenomenon” in all its glory; and those who interpret the Bible as accurate science, history, and prophecy.

Shikaku & Sudoku by Nikoli “Widely regarded as the world’s most prolific wellspring of logic games and brainteasers ... if anyone comes up with the next craze, it will be Nikoli.”—The New York Times Here comes shikaku, an exciting new logic puzzle from Nikoli, the Japanese company that sparked the sudoku craze: Picture a square grid made out of rectangles of different sizes, each of which contains a number indicating its area in square units, but not its exact shape or position. Then imagine the lines between the rectangles erased. Can you use the numbers to figure out how to redraw the lines? It’s harder than it looks. Shikaku’s elegantly simple rules offer a surprising challenge that will delight even the most demanding puzzle fans.

Yajilin & Sudoku by Nikoli Sudoku enthusiasts will welcome this irresistible new creation: a maze-like brainteaser called yajilin. Each yajilin diagram—a grid of small squares with a scattering of numbers and arrows—conceals a captivating challenge for puzzle fans. The solver has to blacken in some of the empty squares (the numbers and arrows provide clues to their locations) and draw a twisting, turning line that passes through the rest of the squares, forming a closed loop. As in sudoku, the rules are few and simple, but finding the one correct solution can be diabolically difficult.

Ripple Effect & Sudoku by Nikoli Like a hit TV show, sudoku just keeps generating hot new spinoffs—like Ripple Effect! The Ripple Effect diagram is divided into areas of different shapes and sizes called rooms. If a room contains two squares, they must be filled with the numbers 1 and 2. If there are three squares, it’s 1, 2, and 3, and so on. But the “ripple effect” rule dictates that any two 1s in the same row or column must have at least one square between them…any two 2s must have at least two squares between them…and so on. Sudoku fans will get the idea instantly—and will enjoy mastering this exciting new challenge.

Crisis of Character

October 2009

Building Corporate Reputation in the Age of Skepticism by Peter Firestein

$24.95 (CANADA $31.95) HARD 978-1-4027-6246-8

Reputation matters—now more than ever. Public opinion in the wake of the financial meltdown has revealed the public’s abiding mistrust of corporations and the executives who run them. Scrutiny from the Internet and 24-hour cable TV offers companies no place to hide; so they must proactively seek the confidence of their shareholders and the public. In today’s economy, reputation is a prime factor in a corporation’s bottom line. Via its groundbreaking Seven Strategies of Reputation Leadership, Crisis of Character offers a fail-proof way for executives to immunize themselves and their companies against the breakdowns that can happen to even the most prominent organizations. Using real-life examples (from Merck and Citigroup to Hewlett-Packard and Coca-Cola), Crisis of Character presents concrete ways executives can shape the internal corporate culture to support their business interests. This book’s many stories vividly illustrate how corporate strategy must shift to deal effectively with globalization and the new environmental and human rights standards that come with it.

Crisis of Character offers invaluable advice to anyone who operates in the public sphere—and who understands that reputation is the key to survival.

h Lessons are drawn from the author’s experience inside the boardrooms of the world’s largest companies and organizations

h Explains the importance of the “Conscience Consumer”: The millions of individuals who select products on the basis of ethics (including those that involve damage to the environment and cruelty to animals) and choose companies according to shared values

About the Author PETER FIRESTEIN is a consultant specializing in reputation risk management in both public and financial arenas. Since 2002, he has helmed Global Strategic Communications, Inc., counseling the CEOs and senior managers of a variety of global corporations.

“[A] small wonder. Unsentimental and unpretentious, it manages to hit all its marks effortlessly.… “[Graboys] does one of the best jobs on record of doggedly unpeeling the onion-skin layers of alternating ego and vulnerability that encase the doctor turned patient”—The New York Times

NEW IN PAPERBACK

Life in the Balance A Physician’s Memoir of Life, Love, and Loss with Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia by Thomas Graboys, M.D., with Peter Zheutlin At the age of 49, Dr. Thomas Graboys had reached the pinnacle of his career and was leading a charmed life. A nationally renowned Boston cardiologist popular for his attention to the hearts and souls of his patients, he had a beautiful wife, two wonderful daughters, positions on both the faculty of Harvard Medical School and the staff of Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and a thriving private practice. Today, Graboys is battling a particularly aggressive form of Parkinson’s disease and progressive dementia, and can no longer see patients or give rounds. Despite the physical, mental, and emotional toll he battles daily, Graboys continues his life-long mission of caring for the world one human being at a time by telling his story so that others may find comfort, inspiration, or validation in their own struggles.

About the Author THOMAS GRABOYS, M.D. is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, President Emeritus of the Lown Cardiovascular Research Foundation in Brookline, Massachusetts, and Senior Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. In 1985, Dr. Graboys was part of the team of doctors who won the Nobel Peace Prize for their work with the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.

A unique and inspiring memoir that captures the resiliency of the human spirit.” – Dr. Jerome Groopman, professor, Harvard Medical School, and author of How Doctors Think

“Beautifully written, searingly honest, this book lets us see the impact of serious illness on a man who is both a doctor and a patient.”–Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People “I was blown away....An eye-opening read....A remarkable book.” —Dr. Timothy Johnson, ABC News Medical Correspondent

A cultural castaway writes winningly of life on a remote island in the Pacific that may eventually be one of global warming’s first casualties.

Surviving Paradise One Year on a Disappearing Island by Peter Rudiak-Gould Just one month after his 21st birthday, Peter Rudiak-Gould moved to Ujae, a remote atoll in the Marshall Islands located 70 miles from the nearest telephone, car, store, or tourist, and 2,000 miles from the closest continent. He spent the next year there, living among its 450 inhabitants and teaching English to its schoolchildren.

November 2009

At first blush, Surviving Paradise is a thoughtful and laugh-out-loud hilarious documentation of Rudiak-Gould’s efforts to cope with daily life on Ujae as his idealistic expectations of a tropical paradise confront harsh reality. But Rudiak-Gould goes beyond the personal, interweaving his own story with fascinating political, linguistic, and ecological digressions about the Marshall Islands. Most poignant are his observations of the noticeable effect of global warming on these tiny, low-lying islands and the threat rising water levels pose to their already precarious existence.

304 PAGES 6X9 BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY/ PERSONAL MEMOIRS

An Eat, Pray, Love as written by Paul Theroux, Surviving Paradise is a disarmingly lighthearted narrative with a substantive emotional undercurrent.

h The first travel narrative exploring the effect of climate change in the South Pacific; most of the few books written on the region are focused on atomic fallout at Bikini Atoll h Will appeal to fans of such travel writers as Bill Bryson and Paul Theroux, as well as to young people seeking their way in the world h Rudiak-Gould’s expertise on Marshallese culture and language, his credentials in anthropology and linguistics, and his understanding of the environmental collapse that the islands face elevate this book above mere armchair travel

About the Author PETER RUDIAK-GOULD is currently pursuing a doctorate in anthropology at Oxford, focusing on Marshallese understandings of global warming and sea level rise. In the summer of 2007, he interviewed the President of the Marshall Islands regarding the effects of climate change. Proficient in Marshallese, the native language of the Marshall Islands, he is the author of the language textbook used by the WorldTeach volunteer organization as its official language manual for the Marshall Islands program.

The untold story behind the movie Changeling “And you wonder: How the hell did this guy go on to be a loving father and grandfather? How did he bury all that crap? That’s a whole story in itself.” —Clint Eastwood, director of Changeling, regarding Sanford Clark

The Road Out of Hell Sanford Clark and the True Story of the Wineville Murders by Anthony Flacco, with Jerry Clark From 1926 to 1928, Gordon Stewart Northcott committed at least 20 murders on a chicken ranch outside of Los Angeles. His nephew, Sanford Clark, was held captive there from the age of 13 to 15, and was the sole surviving victim of the killing spree. Here, acclaimed crime writer Anthony Flacco—using never-before-heard information from Sanford’s son Jerry Clark—tells the real story behind the case that riveted the nation. Forced by Northcott to take part in the murders, Sanford carried tremendous guilt all his life. Yet despite his youth and the trauma, he helped gain some justice for the dead and their families by testifying at Northcott’s trial–which led to his conviction and execution. It was a shocking story, but perhaps the most shocking part of all is the extraordinarily ordinary life Clark went on to live as a decorated WWII vet, a devoted husband of 55 years, a loving father, and a productive citizen. In dramatizing one of the darkest cases in American crime, Flacco constructs a riveting psychological drama about how Sanford was able to detoxify himself from the evil he’d encountered, offering the ultimately redemptive story of one man’s remarkable ability to survive a nightmare and emerge intact.

h Highly cinematic material, based on Jerry Clark’s recollections, court records, and newspaper accounts h Complements the story now familiar to millions who’ve seen Changeling h A video book trailer will be produced to further promote the book h Introduction and jacket quote by world-renowned forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Stone, the host of Discovery Channel’s popular series Most Evil
