A Silent Spring for the twenty-first century: Designed to set the agenda for the new presidential administration, influence business policies, and rally public action, Changing Planet, Changing Health boldly argues that we must heal the Earth, and identifies the measures that will enable us to heal ourselves.

Changing Planet, Changing Health How Climate Change Threatens Our Health and What We Must Do About It by Paul Epstein, MD, Associate Director, the Center for Health and the Global Environment, Harvard Medical School, & Dan Ferber As Rachel Carson did in Silent Spring, Dr. Paul Epstein here delivers a powerful wake-up call to readers and leaders, chronicling the alarming effects of global climate change on the health of our planet and its inhabitants. Blending groundbreaking scientific inquiry, sympathetic human stories, and a behind-the-scenes view of the politics of climate change during the Bush administration, Dr. Epstein, originally a general practitioner and tropical disease specialist, and award-winning science journalist Dan Ferber unveil an elegant and far-reaching synthesis of medicine, environmental science, and economic policy that sheds new light on the climate crisis and its startling impact on human health. From Africa, where mosquito-borne diseases like malaria and dengue fever now appear at high altitudes, to the outpatient unit of Harlem Hospital, where doctors treat children with asthma worsened by high pollen levels boosted by rising carbon dioxide, Epstein and Ferber sound a clarion call that introduces readers to the cuttingedge of climate change science. Their book, the first to examine global warming’s damaging health effects, also contains an array of innovative measures to ameliorate their underlying causes.

Updated to Include Barack Obama’s Historic Presidential Victory

Becoming American The African-American Journey by Howard Dodson Far too many Americans, of all races, are unaware of the pivotal role that people of African descent have played in shaping the US and the world. Even less is known about the role of African peoples in the history of all humankind. Becoming American: The African-American Journey will open their eyes—and enlighten even the already knowledgeable. It features two side-by-side chronological timelines that uniquely contrast the major events and personalities in both African-American and Global/African Diasporan history—spanning from 4 million BCE to Barack Obama’s momentous presidential campaign. In addition, a carefully-chosen collection of key political, historical, cultural and literary texts, quotes, speeches, and songs document the impact of the black presence in American and world history. • Written by the Director of New York’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, one of the world’s most renowned repositories of black history • This is a key book that will help readers understand and appreciate how African-Americans defined and redefined the very concept of America • The concise side-by-side format makes it easy to compare American and world events

From Here to Infinity A Beginner’s Guide to Astronomy by John Gribbin & Mary Gribbin Renowned science writers John and Mary Gribbin team up with one of the most historic scientific sites in the world—the Royal Observatory, Greenwich—to take readers on a stunning visual tour of the universe. This riveting journey moves from our home planet outwards to the Moon, Sun, Inner and Outer Solar Systems, Milky Way, and other galaxies. Not only do the Gribbins discuss the always-intriguing topic of alien life, but they divulge little-known facts (Venus is the only planet in our solar system to rotate backwards), as well as all the basics beginning armchair astronomers need to know. Dramatic four-color photographs complement the informative text, giving readers a sense of what it might be like to be an astronaut…and go where no one has gone before.

Sacred Geometry Deciphering the Code by Stephen Skinner A fascinating and inspirational look at the vital link between the hidden geometrical order of the universe, geometry in nature, and the geometry of the man-made world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR STEPHEN SKINNER is an acclaimed author credited with introducing feng shui to the West. His books include The Living Manual of Feng Shui (considered a classic text of the art) and The Complete Magicians Tables . Skinner’s magazine, Feng Shui for Modern Living is distributed in 41 countries.

The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined. Sacred Geometry offers an accessible way of understanding how that connection is revealed in nature and the arts. Over the centuries, temple builders have relied on magic numbers to shape sacred spaces, astronomers have used geometry to calculate holy seasons, and philosophers have observed the harmony of the universe in the numerical properties of music. By showing how the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and how they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite. “Skinner makes a remarkably elegant case.” —Booklist

Tree A New Vision of the American Forest by James Balog April 2009

ABOUT THE AUTHOR JAMES BALOG’s photographs have been exhibited in prominent arts institutions worldwide, and are included in dozens of public and private collections. In addition to various National Geographic publications, magazines such as Time, Smithsonian, Audubon, Outside, Stern, Geo, and Paris-Match have regularly published Balog’s work.

In Tree, acclaimed photographer James Balog explores the changing character of the American forest, seeking out superlative trees—the old, the massive, the tall—in whatever landscape they remain. We see immense portraits of sequoias and redwoods as no human has ever viewed them, captured in thousands of tiny frames as the photographer rappels down a neighboring tree. We also see thoughtful portrayals of trees that have survived by sheer hardiness or luck, poised on the edge of northern wilderness, isolated on a golf course, or pardoned by the mark of a forward-thinking logger. With accompanying essays by the photographer, this aweinspiring volume truly delivers a new vision of American trees.

CHURCHILL’S WISDOM: “It is a mistake to try to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time.” “Nothing is more fatal to success than operating from slippery footing on an uncertain foundation.” “Change is the master key. A man can wear out a particular part of his mind by continually using it and tiring it, just in the same way as he can wear out the elbows of his coat.” “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill, CEO 25 Lessons for Bold Business Leaders by Alan Axelrod Following his BusinessWeek bestsellers Elizabeth I, CEO and Patton on Leadership comes a new and perfect subject for Alan Axelrod’s innovative format: Winston Churchill, the quintessential leader of the 20th century. Churchill skillfully converted crisis into victory, making the boldest of visions seem attainable; even though he sometimes failed audaciously, he embraced his errors and used them to become stronger. Axelrod looks at this much-studied figure in a way nobody has before: he explores 25 key facets of Churchill’s leadership style and decision-making from his early years as a junior cavalry officer and journalist to his role throughout WWII and demonstrates how he was able to overcome near-impossible obstacles. Fluidly and engagingly written, each lesson is enlivened with a vivid vignette from Churchill’s life. As always, Axelrod’s penetrating analysis will instruct, inspire, and encourage those who lead business enterprises, large and small. • The follow-up to Axelrod’s bestseller, Elizabeth I, CEO • Interspersed throughout the narrative are quotes, sidebars, and takeaways that crystallize Churchill’s wisdom in easy-to-remember sound bites • Although targeted to business managers, the lessons in Winston Churchill, CEO have a wider audience. Anybody who aspires to leadership can profit from this book, whether it’s in business, politics, or beyond ABOUT THE AUTHOR

ALAN AXELROD is the author of more than 60 books, including the bestsellers Profiles in Audacity (Sterling, 2007) ; Patton on Leadership (Prentice Hall Press, 2001); Elizabeth I, CEO (Prentice Hall, 2000); and What Every American Should Know About American History: 200 Events That Shaped the Nation (with Charles Phillips). He has appeared on MSNBC, The Discovery Channel, CNN, Fox, and numerous radio news and talk programs, including NPR. Axelrod and his work have been featured in BusinessWeek, Fortune, Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan , and many newspapers, including USA Today .

The Loom of God Tapestries of Mathematics and Mysticism by Clifford A. Pickover From the mysterious cult of Pythagoras to the awesome mechanics of Stonehenge to the “gargoyles” and fractals on today’s computers, mathematics has always been a powerful, even divine force in the world. In a lively, intelligent synthesis of math, mysticism, and science fiction, Clifford Pickover explains the eternal magic of numbers. Taking a uniquely humorous approach, he appoints readers “Chief Historian” of an intergalactic museum and sends them, along with a quirky cast of characters, hurtling through the ages to explore how individuals used numbers for such purposes as predicting the end of the world, finding love, and winning wars.

Gorgeously illustrated and easy for beginners to follow, this newest guide in the extremely popular Simply series explains how chakras work, the symbols and colors associated with them, and how we can use them to improve every aspect of our life.

Sudoku Astrology Creating Happiness and Succeeding in Love, Sex, and Relationships by Gerry Maguire Thompson, author of Feng Shui Astrology for Lovers, foreword by Michio Kushi, author of Nine Star Ki We all know sudoku is an addictive game that sharpens the brain. But most people don’t realize that the sudoku grid has a long and venerated history. Sudoku Astrology reveals how the ancient numerological system that gave birth to the game—the three-bythree “Magic Square”—is a fascinating oracle, used for thousands of years in numerology, mathematics, divining, feng shui, and cosmology. Many civilizations have regarded it as the key to understanding how life works. A Magic Square contains numbers arranged in a way that has mystical significance, a unique organization of the symbolic numbers 1 to 9 that always add up to 15 in any row. The resulting square acts as a map of shifting life forces and energies—and this illuminating guide shows you how to use your birth date to chart these energies to gain a new awareness of yourself, your relationships, and the world.

Crime & Punishment A Graphic Novel “And, in the dark, a thought came to me that no one had ever had before me: I wanted to kill someone, just in order to dare.” This graphic adaptation of Crime and Punishment masterfully illuminates Dostoevsky’s psychological thriller. Acclaimed French artist Alain Korkos vividly brings to life the mental anguish and moral dilemmas that plague Raskolnikov, a poor St. Petersburg student who murders a miserly pawnbroker. In this classic of Russian literature, the hero, unable to quell his guilt and paranoia, falls from a self-styled “super human” to a tormented soul in search of redemption. Both a philosophical inquiry and searing social critique, this suspense-driven drama remains as widely popular today as ever.

A painting of Dorian begins to age in his place, while Dorian himself becomes a dangerous narcissist who destroys everyone standing in his way until the day he is forced to come face to face with the ugliness of his own conscience.

Sangoma My Odyssey into the Spirit World of Africa by James Hall Nothing in James Hall’s life prepared him for what happened: When he was in Africa writing about the legendary singer Miriam Makeba, she perceived he had the rare gift to see both into the future and into people’s souls. At her urging, Hall consulted a sangoma, a traditional healer, who told him he was possessed by ancestral spirits. Hall could receive the power to heal others and to become a sangoma himself…if he was willing to take the risk. He did—embracing an uncertain future and undergoing a two-year spiritual and physical ordeal. What he experienced shook his grasp of reality to the core as he surrendered himself to souls from the spirit world, learned to read messages in divination bones, and attained a lifetime’s worth of knowledge about traditional medicine. ABOUT THE AUTHOR JAMES HALL is a co-author of the critically acclaimed Makeba: My Story, a former correspondent for Reuters and Agence France-Presse, a contributing editor for Business in Africa magazine, and and a radio reporter for Channel Africa. A magna cum laude graduate of the University of Southern California, he practices as a traditional healer in Manzili, Swaziland.

Teri was preparing dinner when she received a call from Sister Kathleen about a woman who was new to the area and had begun attending their Catholic church. She wanted to share in the faith of her future husband and family. Sister Kathleen asked Teri if she would be interested in volunteering as a sponsor for the woman over the coming year. Although Teri wanted to help, she decided it would be too large a commitment and hard on her young family. She declined. But she couldn’t shake the feeling that she shouldn’t have said no and after much prayer and discussion with her husband, decided that she would agree to be the woman’s sponsor. That woman was me, Serena. My friend Teri isn’t my sister but she might as well be. We share common interests, dreams, love of family, and a desire to do good that was taught to us as children. That desire was alive one day as I was unloading a filthy old metal tool box amongst a load of old goods from the back of a stranger’s truck. “I love old junk,” I said. “Well if you like that, you should come check out my old cabin on the mountain,” my neighbor Clayton replied. The load that day was one of hundreds I’d received while organizing a fundraiser for a wonderful man, Paul, who was a volunteer firefighter with my husband. He had been diagnosed with a form of cancer, and we wanted to help. Paul was a good man, one who’d light up a room and

I’d suggested holding a rummage sale as a way for us, as neighbors and friends, to show our love for a good man, and hoped it would help with Paul’s medical expenses, and quite possibly, those of his funeral. The sale raised thousands of dollars and Paul was deeply touched by the outpouring of support from the community. Sadly, Paul lost his battle with cancer shortly thereafter. Many months went by and I saw Clayton again. He made another offer for me to go through the old cabin he had inherited from his Aunt Ruby—a strong and independent

MAKES 6 SIDE SERVINGS WORKING TIME 15 MINUTES TOTAL TIME 25 MINUTES

From the sweet honey-toasted nuts to the tangy dressing—we love the combination of flavors in this pretty side salad.

3/4

cup walnut pieces (about 5 ounces)

1/2

1 tablespoon honey 1 9-ounce package fresh spinach (approximately 12 cups) 1/2

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

cup thinly sliced red onions (1 medium)

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

teaspoon salt

1/4

teaspoon sugar

1/4

cup olive oil

1 15-ounce can beets, rinsed, drained, and cut into bite-size pieces 1/2

cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)

Toast the nuts: Place the walnuts in a skillet over medium heat and stir until lightly toasted—5 to 6

minutes. Add the honey and stir to coat evenly. Cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, until thoroughly coated. Transfer the mixture to a plate to cool; then break the nuts apart. TOASTED NUTS

Any recipe that calls for nuts will be enhanced if you toast them before adding. It’s quick to do and not only brings out more flavor in the nuts, but adds to the texture as well. It just takes a quick 5 to 10 minutes in a 400°F oven or stirred in a skillet.

Make the salad and dressing: Place the spinach and onions in a large bowl. Whisk together the balsamic

From the polio vaccine to the Post-It, the personal computer to Prozac, these are the scientific and technological innovations that have transformed our world. Award-winning author Alex Hutchinson unveils the 100 greatest inventions of the modern era—starting with the discovery of the transistor in 1947—complete with original photographs and anecdotes about their creation. For example, a candy bar melting in a scientist’s pocket during an experiment led to the invention of the microwave oven. Hutchinson consulted 25 experts at 17 museums and universities; their collective expertise spans aeronautics, automobiles, biology, computers, medicine, physics, and a host of other fields. The result includes some well-known breakthroughs (the laser, in-vitro fertilization) as well as a host of surprises (waffle-sole running shoes, the pull-top can).

“For me, the design has to be intentional...so that both sides are beautiful and balanced . . . If both knitted sides are similar—or even completely different from each other—the piece is reversible in a way that much, if not most, knitwear is not. Either side can be public.” — Iris Schreier

Iris Schreier’s Reversible Knits Creative Techniques for Knitting Both Sides Right by Iris Schreier What a winning combination: celebrated author Iris Schreier, 24 exquisite projects, and dozens of in-demand techniques that result in garments that look great on both sides. Using knit/purl, two-color, double knitting, cable, lace, and modular knitting methods, Iris creates beautiful shrugs, shawls, scarves, throws, hats, socks, and more. Some of the items actually have different looks on the front and back while others simply show the same clean, finished fabric throughout. Iris walks novices through all the essentials, then shares modern adaptations of classic stitches, illuminated by photos of hand-knitted swatches. As a bonus, there’s a super-handy yarn substitution chart and an appendix with extra variations for advanced knitters. Knitters of all skill levels can now achieve true “revers-atility”!

The 22 decorative items—which range from a glowing lampshade and holiday tree ornaments to napkin rings, votive holders, and layered canvases—showcase the style’s diversity and charm, and add bold new touches, like color. Plus, the book includes 50 fabulous patterns that will work in almost every imaginable project!

Smart Object Pipeline Revolutionary Tactics for the Photoshop Layer Workflow by Ted Dillard Adobe introduced Smart Objects with Photoshop CS2—but geared it to graphic designers, not photographers. Now, with CS4 looming, the company’s engineers have nearly perfected this powerful tool, and they’re aiming at digital photographers too. In his third Pipeline volume, Ted Dillard explains the technology, providing a detailed and elegant workflow guide for photographers and Photoshop enthusiasts. It’s up to date for the newest technology and includes a thorough primer on Adobe Camera RAW, building images through layers, using JPEGS in RAW, color management, and much more. Dillard culls the vast amounts of information about Photoshop and Smart Objects into an easily digestible, step-by-step process that will change how photographers work with RAW files forever. • To date, there are no other books about Smart Objects directed at the digital photography community. In fact, little has been mentioned in terms of using Smart Objects alongside RAW image file processing. This is truly a unique title

The Power of Breath The Art of Breathing Well for Harmony, Happiness, and Health by Swami Saradananda A Sanskrit proverb says, “If you breathe well, you will live long on Earth.” That’s because breathing is the key to well-being; done properly, it can boost energy, relieve pain, and transform our lives. The Power of Breath teaches us to pay attention to this vital process and breathe mindfully. The beautifully illustrated and authoritative guide covers all five types of breathing in the Eastern tradition, each related to a particular prana or life-force. More than 30 exercises come complete with step-by-step photographs, and there’s a selection of programs to target common health problems and to enhance skills, including singing, speaking, and sports.

The Real Messiah The Throne of St. Mark and the True Origins of Christianity by Stephan Huller Highly controversial but impeccably researched, The Real Messiah explodes the myth that Jesus was the long-prophesied Messiah of the Jewish nation. Indeed, it argues that Jesus never claimed that role but thought of himself as herald to the true Messiah: Marcus Julius Agrippa, the last King of the Jews and Jesus’s contemporary. It was he who truly founded what became known as Christianity, and wanted to build a faith to which anyone could aspire. Though Marcus Agrippa was initially successful, with the passing of time, those in charge of the new faith capitulated to the whims of successive Roman Emperors and centered their religion on Jesus instead. • A controversial study that will spark interest and debate • Paints an accurate and vivid picture of one of the most fascinating periods in history

Life Beyond Death What Should We Expect? by David Fontana Most people believe in some form of life after death, but what exactly is the nature of the afterlife? David Fontana examines all the evidential material that has been accumulated over time— including communication through mediums and accounts from those who had near-death and out-of-body experiences—and compares them to descriptions found in such mystical texts as The Tibetan Book of the Dead and The Egyptian Book of the Dead . He explores the whole area of human consciousness and considers the question: if the body and the brain perish at death, what remains to survive? From the various ideas of paradise to the very meaning of existence, this is a journey through infinite possibilities. • David Fontana’s successful Is There an Afterlife? shows there is interest in a larger discussion of the topic

Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince on The Art of Power The New Illustrated Edition of the Renaissance Masterpiece on Leadership Translation by J.W. Marriott, introduction by Cary J. Nederman With a scene-setting historical introduction, this newly translated and illustrated edition of a classic work is an essential addition to any home library. Written in 1512, The Prince is the masterpiece by Florentine political philosopher, poet, and playwright Niccolò Machiavelli. Although Machiavelli’s book has been frequently misunderstood as a manual for unprincipled manipulators and tyrants, careful reading reveals that it actually identifies freedom as an essential characteristic of a good society. In fact, much of Machiavelli’s republican thought can be identified in the American Constitution, and many of his ideas—such as the belief that life is subject to change and that the winners will be those flexible enough to adapt— remain as applicable today as they were half a millennium ago.

Bloomsbury Ballerina Lydia Lopokova, Imperial Dancer and Mrs John Maynard Keynes by Judith Mackrell Vivacious and charming, ballerina Lydia Lopokova leapt to the height of fame with Diaghilev’s legendary Ballets Russes. Then, a surprising marriage to renowned economist (and former homosexual) John Maynard Keynes catapulted her into an entirely different universe. Her extraordinary story is told here for the first time: it links the world of ballet with the Bloomsbury group—including such remarkable individuals as Nijinsky, Picasso, Stravinsky, and Virginia Woolf—and spans the past century’s most dramatic social, political, and cultural upheavals. Quoting from many of Lydia’s own writings, Judith Mackrell captures her intensely captivating, eccentric, and irreverent personality…and claims her as a major character in both dance and world history. ABOUT THE AUTHOR JUDITH MACKRELL is a writer and dance critic for the Guardian , as well as the ghostwriter for ballerina Darcey Bussell’s Life in Dance .

The Atlantic Cryptic Crosswords by Emily Cox and Henry Rathvon Dedicated puzzle enthusiasts see it too often: ordinary crosswords with ho-hum clues like “Toledo’s lake” for ERIE. That means they need to spice up their solving with the pure puzzling pleasure of cryptic crosswords. Here, each clue offers double the dose of wordplay: to find the answer, they’ll have to do a little extra deciphering—recognizing a homophone, for example, or working out a charade. Once fans try cryptics, they’ll never return to regular crosswords again!

YAHTZEE Scratch & Play to Go! by Peter Gordon No more dice to lose, and it can go anywhere: everybody’s a winner with this addictive new book! Just as with Hasbro’s real YAHTZEE game, players get to “roll” five dice three times to find their highest score.

“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

Fillomino & Sudoku by Nikoli No one in the puzzle field has hatched as many new brainteasers as Nikoli, publishers of Japan’s very first puzzle monthly. Now their blockbuster creation sudoku joins forces with a hot newcomer—fillomino. Like sudoku, fillomino has a simple set of rules that allow for endlessly fascinating possibilities. The challenge: fill a grid with clusters of numbers (2s in groups of 2, 3s in groups of 3, etc.) so that no group touches a group of the same size. America’s millions of sudoku fans will catch on instantly—and they’ll be hooked.

Hashi & Sudoku by Nikoli There’s an irresistible new puzzle from Nikoli! For millions of fans worldwide, that’s big news. Nikoli, publisher of Japan’s very first puzzle magazine and popularizer of the mega-hit sudoku, now introduces hashi (Japanese for “bridge”)—a puzzle that asks solvers to draw lines between numbered circles. The rules: all lines must be horizontal or vertical, no lines may cross, and each circle may have only as many “bridges” as its number. Sounds simple…until you try it. Which makes it a perfect new companion to sudoku, today’s most popular logic puzzle. • Nikoli is a recognized leader in the field of puzzles, with a huge worldwide following • Hashi, like sudoku, is pure logic — no math or specialized knowledge required

Hitori & Sudoku by Nikoli Puzzle fans will love hitori. Instead of filling in numbers on a grid, they have to black them out—like playing sudoku backwards! Hitori is a new brainchild of Nikoli, publisher of Japan’s very first puzzle magazine and a superpower in the puzzle world. The rules are simple: 1) No number may appear more than once in any row or column. 2) Starting with a fully-filled grid, the solver has to decide which duplicate numbers to knock out. And 3) all numbers remaining at the end have to be connected together. It’s a whole new kind of mind-bending fun.

Fill-In Paint-doku by Conceptis Puzzles In what may be among the most innovative twists on sudoku ever seen, the creative geniuses at Conceptis have literally turned solving puzzles into an art form! Rather than simply figuring out which numbers go where, the solver first uses logic and creative reasoning to choose the correct number to put in each square, and then shades in the corresponding number of squares surrounding it to reveal a surprise picture. For example, the number 6 will be surrounded by six shaded squares. Discovering which six of the eight potential choices are correct adds to the challenge. • Conceptis is the #1 provider of number-logic and picturelogic puzzles worldwide

Vowelless Crosswords by Frank Longo Wht’s bttr thn crsswrds? Tht’s rght: crsswrds wth n vwls! At first, these challenging, but fiendishly fun, puzzles look like the usual crossword. But there’s a devilish twist: you write only the consonants in the boxes, not the vowels. So when you look at the grid, there’s no quick way to know exactly how many letters make up the right solution. Plus, because you don’t need as many spaces for each word, the phrases can be longer than usual—and that makes the grids wide open and ratchets up the difficulty level. For those who need a little extra help, there’s a hints section to tear out and refer to when needed, as well as grids with wordlists explaining (with vowels) what the answers are. “Every one of these puzzles, though fair and impressively constructed, is an absolute beast. This book will provide a stiff challenge no matter how good at crosswords you are.

Regret the Error How Media Mistakes Pollute the Press and Imperil Free Speech by Craig Silverman, founder and editor of the popular Web site RegretTheError.com, foreword by Jeff Jarvis Winner of the National Press Club’s Arthur Rowse Award for Press Criticism! From Craig Silverman, proprietor of www.RegretTheError.com, comes a lively journey through the history of media mistakes via a chronicle of funny, shocking, and often disturbing journalistic slip-ups. The errors—running the gamut from hilarious to tragic—include “Fuzzy Numbers” (when numbers and math undermine reporting), “Obiticide” (printing the obituary of a living person), and “Unintended Consequences” (typos and misidentifications that create a new, incorrect reality). While some of the errors are laugh-out-loud funny, the book also offers a serious investigation of contemporary journalism’s lack of accountability to the public, and a rousing call to arms for all news organizations to mend their ways and reclaim the role of the press as the honest voice of the people. • Includes a new introduction from the author and up-to-date new corrections • Received extensive reviews, and appeared in many columns by newspaper editors

The Canary Sang but Couldn’t Fly The Fatal Fall of Abe Reles, the Mobster Who Shattered Murder, Inc.’s Code of Silence by Edmund Elmaleh It remains one of the most enduring mysteries in gangland lore: in 1941, while Abe Reles and three other key informants were under round-the-clock NYPD protection, the ruthless and powerful thug took a deadly plunge from the window of a Coney Island hotel. The first criminal of his stature to break the underworld’s code of silence, he had begun “singing” for the courts—giving devastating testimony that implicated former cronies—with more to come. With cops around him day and night, how could Reles have gone out the window? Did he try to escape? Did a hit man break in? Or did someone in the “squealer’s suite” murder him? Here’s the gripping story, packed with political machinations, legal sleight-of-hand, mob violence—and, finally, a proposed answer to the question: How did Abe Reles really die?

Murder mysteries: ✧ Why didn’t police investigate the mysterious sounds they heard on the night that Reles died? ✧ What do previously classified FBI documents reveal about Brooklyn D.A. William O’Dwyer, who had plans to run for mayor of New York? ✧ Why was the note “Withhold information by order of D.A.” scribbled on Reles’s autopsy report? ✧ Why was Abe’s widow so bitterly opposed to reopening the case? • This is the first full-length account of Mob informer Abe Reles’s mysterious death in 1941, and it is largely based on primary sources, including the papers of the Brooklyn District Attorney and previously classified FBI documents

“On March 15, 1924... snowdust coated Kansas City’s staid Park Avenue…Around 10 p.m., an exceptionally beautiful woman unlocked the front door of her home. She must have known him. She let him in the house. But before long something alarmed her… Maybe a snarled threat or a flash of steel warned her that her premonition of a violent death was coming true… She surely thought—if she could form a full thought—of all the friends and lovers to whom she turned for help in her last few days. She had told them someone wanted to murder her. She even said it would happen that weekend.” —From The Love Pirate and the Bandit’s Son

The Love Pirate and the Bandit’s Son Murder, Sin, and Scandal in the Shadow of Jesse James by Laura James Sparks flew when gold digger Dr. Zeo Zoe Wilkins and Jesse James, Jr.—the son of America’s most legendary outlaw—crossed paths. The result: a tale of sex, deceit, money, and murder, grippingly told by noted true-crime blogger Laura James. The beautiful Wilkins—a scheming and oft-married osteopath—was no shrinking violet; she married and probably buried five husbands (or six, according to some reports), some decades older, and all much wealthier, than she. But she was no match for the nefarious Jesse Jr., whom the author argues stabbed Wilkins to death in her Kansas City home in 1924. (The murder was never officially solved.) Laura James maps out the childhood, career, and marital machinations of this ravishing “love pirate” before charting the promising but invariably disappointing life of the bandit’s only son. In the book’s third section, the two indelible characters collide, with lethal consequences for Wilkins. Ably mixing historical conjecture with forensic fact, Laura James conducts a blow-by-blow reconstruction of their tumultuous relationship, including evidence that she believes convicts Jesse James, Jr. • The popularity of this kind of book seems nearly inexhaustible, as evidenced by T.J. Stiles’s biography of the elder James, an award-winning, near-bestseller for Random House in 2004, as well as Brad Pitt’s star turn as James in the 2007 movie The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, based on the Ron Hansen novel • This is the first book to thoroughly investigate Zeo’s story • Through her blog, the author has gained a strong following of true-crime readers ABOUT THE AUTHOR

LAURA JAMES (no relation to the notorious Jameses) is an attorney and crime historian in Detroit. She is the proprietor of Clews: Your Home for Historic True Crime (http://www.laurajames.typepad.com), one of the top true crime sites on the Internet.

When the news business was literally a matter of life and death…

War of Words A True Tale of Newsprint and Murder by Simon Read A real-life Barbary Coast, War of Words details the bloody birth of the San Francisco Chronicle, when verbal blows traded between two of the town’s most powerful men escalated into violence on the streets of 1880’s San Francisco . Gun-toting newspaper publisher Charles de Young won circulation wars by spilling ink that destroyed political candidates he didn’t like—and Isaac Kalloch, a hellfire preacher whose lust for the ladies equaled his craving to be mayor, was an obvious target. First angry words flew, then bullets, when de Young ambushed Kalloch and shot him. Miraculously, Kalloch survived and won the election, only to see his son enact revenge on his behalf five months later by walking into the newsroom and fatally shooting de Young. The trial lasted 28 days, featured over 200 witnesses and made headlines coast to coast. The verdict? Not guilty, by reason of “justifiable homicide.” This sensational tale of sex, murder, and muckraking enthralled San Franciscans and is sure to captivate modern readers as well.

One summer… Two teams… A devastated city.

After Many a Summer The Passing of the Giants and Dodgers and a Golden Age in New York Baseball by Robert Murphy For New Yorkers—especially Brooklynites—1957 will always be the year that lives in infamy. That was when the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants delivered a one-two punch to the city by abandoning their hometown for California. Millions of bereft and angry baseball fans wondered how such a thing could be allowed to happen— Who was to blame?

“Delaney’s story...becomes more intense than overtime in the playoffs.” —Boston Globe

More than 30,000 copies sold in hardcover!

“Delaney’s heroic performance during his perilous assignment represents the finest traditions of the New Jersey State Police. My father, the first superintendent of the New Jersey State Police Department, would have been proud of him.” —General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, U.S. Army (ret.)

“[F]ascinating...a must-read...” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A slam dunk, a bull’s eye and any other glowing mafia or basketball metaphor you can think of.” —Kirkus “Gripping...Fans of such undercover-themed books as Donnie Brasco, or organized-crime exposés like The Valachi Papers, will devour this one.” —Booklist

NEW IN PAPERBACK

Covert My Years Infiltrating the Mob by Bob Delaney, NBA Referee, with Dave Scheiber “You are about to read a fascinating and grippping tale of one great American’s fight for truth and justice...Delaney’s story is both courageous and inspirational.” —Bill Walton, ESPN basketball analyst, Basketball Hall of Fame 1993 Featured on ESPN, NPR and CNN In a riveting page-turner, NBA referee Bob Delaney reveals the clandestine life he led before becoming one of professional basketball’s most respected officials. Soon after joining the New Jersey State Troopers in 1973, Delaney was offered a tantalizing undercover assignment: to infiltrate the Mob. And so he became Bobby Covert, the president of Alamo Trucking, a fully-operational business used by law enforcement as flypaper for snagging wise guys. While wearing a wire, Delaney dealt daily with mobsters who modeled themselves after their on-screen counterparts (at the height of The Godfather ’s popularity), and even crossed paths with Joe Pistone, the real-life Donnie Brasco. After three tense years playing a role in which a single slip could cost him his life, Delaney had gathered enough evidence to convict more than 30 members of the Genovese and Bruno crime families. Struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder from the strain of his undercover life, Delaney began officiating high school and intramural basketball games as a way to rebuild his life, eventually working his way up to the NBA, where he has been a referee for over two decades. This is his amazing true story.
