The Darkness That Comes Before: The Prince of Nothing, Book One
R. Scott Bakker
1585675598
June 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Many centuries ago, the world was nearly destroyed by the dark wizards of the Consult, and the High King's family was wiped out--or so it seemed. Then from the wild, uncharted north comes a mysterious and extraordinarily powerful philosopher-warrior, Anasurimbor Kellhus, descendant of the ancient High Kings. But the return of the king's bloodline is little cause for rejoicing. For Kellhus's appearance may signal the overthrow of empires, the destruction of the sorcerous schools, the return of the Consult demons--and the end of the world.

The Darkness that Comes Before is a strong, impressive, deeply imagined debut novel. However, this first book of an epic fantasy series is not accessible; it reads like a later volume of a complicated ongoing series. Author R. Scott Bakker has created a world that is very different from...

Hardcover
·
 
Review
'One could not hope for a more intelligent or erudite guide. His awe-inspiring familiarity with both primary and secondary sources, in England, Germany and America as well as France, enables him to place each of the writers he considers in his or her precise intellectual, social and psychological context. His encyclopaedic knowledge is always the disciplined servant of a clear and penetrating intelligence ... the result is a subtle and comprehensive picture of French Liberal thought during the Restoration and the July Monarchy.' Norman Hampson, French History

Review
"...reveals more about the intellectual context of French liberalism between the First and Second Empires than any other single work I know." Nineteenth-Century French Studies

Is George Bush the Antichrist
R. Stephen Hanchett
1411609832
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book is to presents the case that George Bush is the Antichrist. No, the author isn't some religious crackpot with secret inside information from God, but rather he presents an argument that is supported by the kind of information that is available to anyone who would bother to look. Though many dismiss the notion of an Antichrist out of hand, a recent Gallup Poll found that 68% of the American public believes in the devil. In spite of this, and in spite of the fact that speculation concerning the identity of the Antichrist had been the prime topic of public interest for almost 2,000 years, today there are few if any non-fiction books available that explore the topic in the light of current events. In the final analysis, the book demonstrates that the Antichrist is not just a wolf in sheep’s clothing...

Babe Ruth: A Daughter's Portrait
George Beim
0878339957
March 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
There's something about the Babe. He continues to mesmerize long after the retiring of #3, and it's his enduring familiarity that makes this spruced-up family album assembled by his daughter such alluring fun. The Bambino was certainly one of the most willingly photographed individuals of his time, but A Daughter's Portrait goes beyond the staged and hyped--though the staged and the hyped are displayed in full glory--to offer some lovely images of a man of minimal privacy just being himself: fishing and hunting with the guys, missing a putt, reading the paper, at ease with his family. Some of the photo captions suffer from saccharine overdose, and others are factually incomplete or inaccurate, but that only conspires to make this whole seductive enterprise more personal, endearing, and folksy. --Jeff Silverman
