Barbara Park
0375828060
August 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In the 24th installment of Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones series of illustrated early chapter books, Boo... And I Mean It!, the precocious first grader is worried about Halloween--with good reason. Paulie Allen Puffer has given her five good reasons, in fact, not least of which is that real witches and monsters go trick-or-treating on Halloween (no costumes necessary); if you carve pumpkins with pointy teeth, they will bite your feet; and...shhh...candy corn isn't really corn. Junie B. goes to great lengths to avoid trick-or-treating altogether, but she finally decides that if she dresses up like Squirty the Clown (a disturbing circus clown who terrified her grandmother by chasing her with a seltzer bottle and making her wear an "unattractive balloon hat"), even the most horrific witches and monsters will be ...


The Best of Montana's Short Fiction
Allen Jones
1592282695
Oct 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Montana probably has more good writers per capita than any other state, and the editors should know: Kittredge was an editor of the monumental anthology The Last Best Place (1988) and Allison Morris Jones was editor of the respected Big Sky Journal. For this collection of 21 "fairly recent" short stories, they've chosen both modern classics (Rick Bass' "Days of Heaven," Richard Ford's "Great Falls") and some that should be (Pete Fromm's "Hoot," Melanie Rae Thon's "Father, Lover, Deadman, Dreamer"). Other excellent works include Mary Clearman Blew's inquiry into the ethics of living near wild animals ("Bears and Lions") and Neil McMahon's tale of a prison boxing championship ("Heart"). This is a fine book, top-heavy with talent--with many stories that feel trapped in amber. Characters live in indeterminate...

American Immigration
Maldwyn Allen Jones
0226406334
Apr 1992
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Immigration, writes Maldwyn Allen Jones, was America's historic raison d'être. Reminding us that the history of immigration to the United States is also the history of emigration from somewhere else, Mr. Jones considers the forces that uprooted emigrants from their homes in different parts of the world and analyzes the social, economic, and psychological adjustments that American life demanded of them--adjustments essentially the same for the Jamestown settlers and for Vietnamese refugees. As well as measuring the impact of America on the lives of the sixty million or so immigrants who have arrived since 1607, he assesses their role in industrialization, the westward movement, labor organization, politics, foreign policy, the growth of American nationalism, and the theory and practice of democracy.

Irrational Exuberance
Robert J. Shiller
0691123357
February 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Sequels often disappoint when compared to their predecessors, but author Robert Shiller has proved the exception to the rule with his second edition of Irrational Exuberance. When the original book released in 2000, Shiller's prescient analysis of bubble-like market behavior provided perspective on the painful meltdown of stock-price valuations that subsequently occurred. Five years later, the Yale professor's bearish predictions about real-estate valuations are enough to give any savvy investor or homebuyer pause.

Shiller is one of several well-known economists and pundits who've begun a running dialogue in the last few years around the drawbacks of unchecked free markets. Few writers, though, dissect the phenomenon of bubble behavior as clearly and thoroughly as Shiller does. As with the first edition of his book,...



Accounting Principles for Lawyers
Peter Holgate
0521607221
Feb 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Many lawyers, especially those dealing with commercial matters, need to understand accounting yet feel on shaky ground in the area. This book is written specifically for them. It breaks down and makes clear basic concepts (such as the difference between profit and cash flow), the accounting profession and the legal and regulatory framework within which accounting operates. The relevant provisions of the Companies Act 1985 are discussed at some length. Holgate explains generally accepted accounting principles in the UK (GAAP), the trend towards global harmonisation and the role of international accounting standards. He then deals with specific areas such as group accounts, acquisitions, tax, leases, pensions, financial instruments, and realised profits, focusing in each case on those aspects that are likely to confront...


Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in America
James Allen
0944092691
November 1999
Hardcover
·
 
New York Times, January 13,2000
These images make the past present. They refute the notion that photographs of charged historical subjects lose their power, softening and becoming increasingly aesthetic with time. These images are not going softly into any artistic realm. Instead they send shock waves through the brain, implicating ever larger chunks of American society and in many ways reaching up to the present. They give one a deeper and far sadder understanding of what it has meant to be white and to be black in America. And what it still means.

Paperback

Book Description
With the spread of web-enabled desktop clients and web-server based applications, developers can no longer afford to treat security as an afterthought. It's one topic, in fact, that .NET forces you to address, since Microsoft has placed security-related features at the core of the .NET Framework.

Book Description
Renowned for lampooning the schoolboy view of the medieval world in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Terry Jones is also regarded as a true connoisseur of the Middle Ages. In this lavish volume, he slays the dragons of cliché and platitude.It was the Humanists who created the image of the Middle Ages as a time of ignorance, misery, and superstition, and it is this image that Medieval Lives aims to dispel. Terry Jones and Alan Ereira are your guides to this most misunderstood era, and they point you to things that will surprise and provoke. Did you know that medieval people didn’t burn witches in the Middle Ages? In fact, as our guides point out, medieval kings weren’t necessarily tyrants, and peasants entertained at home using French pottery and fine wine. An exhilarating, supremely...

From Publishers Weekly
An unexpected, passionate relationship between two lonely people from strikingly different backgrounds is at the heart of Jones's luminous first novel. In 1919, 17-year-old Virginia Price is a sophisticated New York debutante. Her father's recent death has left her shaken and unmoored, feelings exacerbated when she is raped and impregnated by her louche boyfriend, Charlie Stroud.

Ranch life is a vivid contrast to her life in the city; she is unaccustomed to the reticence of these Westerners Frank's abused wife, Rose, and cowboys Dewey and Adze among them and to her new status as a fallen woman and a local curiosity. She's puzzled by Frank's son, Henry: at 24, he exists in a state of ennui, brought on by a...
