Fight Back!: Tackling Terrorism, Liddy Style
G. Gordon Liddy
0312199457
February 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Astute readers will quickly decipher the notoriously un-subtle Liddy's motives after reading how "troubles in domestic preparedness" are the result of a "failure to engage the U.S. private sector and the American public in becoming responsible for their own security." How, then, can a person protect against "threats to individual health and safety that extend well beyond those of radical Islamic terrorism?" Enter Liddy's "Total Security Management(tm)" system for business and industry. Though blatantly self-promotional, the book provides a worthwhile crash course in deconstructing the nature of threats and how to protect against them. A section on "significant terrorist groups" reads like a who's-who of violent radicals that's helpful to those who haven't been able to successfully differentiate the difference...

Goodbye: In Search of Gordon Jenkins
Bruce Jenkins
1583941266
October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"Frank Sinatra once told me that he and my father were the two saddest men," writes Jenkins in his biography of his father, Gordon "Gor" Jenkins. As a top-notch composer, arranger, conductor and performer, "Gor" worked with many of the great singers of the 1940s through the 1960s, and is probably best known for the suites Seven Dreams and Manhattan Tower, as well as Frank Sinatra's hit, "It Was a Very Good Year," which earned Gor a Grammy in 1965. The book reads like a Who's Who of the period, with vignettes spotlighting Gor's work with Nat Cole, Bing Crosby, Benny Goodman, Peggy Lee and many others. Perhaps most surprising is the author's account of his father's obsession with The Weavers, and Jenkins's interview with Pete Seeger provides first-hand information on the folk group's 1950 recording sessions, Decca...


Solitons in Optical Fibers
Linn F. Mollenauer
012504190X
Feb 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Solitons are waves that retain their form through obstacle and distance. Solitons can be found in hydrodynamics, nonlinear optics, plasma physics, and biology. Optical solitons are solitary light waves that hold their form over an expansive interval. Conservation of this form creates an effective model for long distance voice and data transmission.

The application of this principle is essential to the technology of wired communications. Optical solitons produce crystal clear phone calls cross-country and internationally. It is because of these that someone on the other end of the phone sounds 'in the next room.' It is also pertinent to high-speed network information transmittal.

Mollenauer and Gordon have written the only text that an engineer or graduate student will need to understand this foundation...


Batman: The Long Halloween (Batman Series)
Jeph Loeb
1563894696
November 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
It's refreshing when you find a Batman story that both is epic and successfully explores the core of a resolutely explored character. Taking as its catalyst a sub-plot from the seminal Batman: Year One, the story revolves around murders occurring on national holidays, the victims connected to Mob boss "The Roman." Dubbed "Holiday," the killer uses an untraceable handgun and leaves small trinkets at the scene. Plenty of suspects are available, but the truth is something the Dark Knight never suspected. This series scores two major coups: it brilliantly portrays the transfer of Gotham rule to the supervillains and charts the horrific transformation of Harvey Dent from hardened D.A. to the psychotic Two-Face. Both orbit around the sharply portrayed relationship between Dent, Commissioner Gordon, and Batman: a triumvirate of...


Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart
Gordon Livingston
1419363565
September 2005
Compact Disc
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. The gentle, even-keeled warmth of Livingston's prose distinguishes this slim book of 30 inspirational "truths." A psychiatrist familiar with trauma from both his practice and his life (in one 13-month period, he lost one son to leukemia and another to suicide), Livingston offers the kind of wisdom that feels simultaneously commonsensical and revelatory: "We are what we do," "The perfect is the enemy of the good," "The major advantage of illness is relief from responsibility." He intersperses counsel with personal experience, and tackles topics both joyful and deeply painful. In the chapter focusing on "We are what we do," he notes that the "three components of happiness are something to do, someone to love, and something to look forward to," and he reminds us that "love is demonstrated...


Abby Takes a Stand

Book Description
Why has their grandmother bothered keeping a menu from a restaurant that closed years ago, a restaurant that never served very good food in the first place? Three cousins listen to Gee’s own story, set in the early days of lunch counter sit-ins in Nashville, a time when a black child could sit up front in a city bus but still could not get a milk shake at a downtown restaurant. Through the eyes of ten-year-old Abby, young readers see what it was like to live through those days, and they’ll come to understand that, like a menu, freedom is about having choices. Each book in this series tells the story behind a different "scrap of time"; together they form a patchwork quilt of one black family’s past that stretches back for generations.

Habermas: A Very Short Intro
Gordon Finlayson
0192840959
November 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Jurgen Habermas is the most renowned living German philosopher. This book aims to give a clear and readable overview of his philosophical work. It analyzes both the theoretical underpinnings of Habermas's social theory, and its more concrete applications in the fields of ethics, politics, and
law. Finally, it examines how Habermas's social and political theory informs his writing on real, current political and social problems. The author explores Habermas's influence on a wide variety of fields--including philosophy, political and social theory, cultural studies, sociology, and literary
studies. He uses a problem-based approach to explain how Habermas's ideas can be applied to actual social and political situations. The book also includes a glossary of technical terms to further acquaint the reader with...

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-4 The second in the series, this book begins as the Webster children investigate their grandmother's attic. A memento there leads to the story of their ancestor, Everett Turner. Following the Civil War, he was the first of his family to be born into freedom, and the first to be educated. As his story begins, Everett has stowed away on a riverboat headed to St. Louis.

He learns to work with horses and joins a group of former slaves headed for Nicodemus, KS. The story ends as the group begins the trip to Kansas City. The cover art with a boy on a bucking horse will draw many readers. They'll find a rewarding tale that highlights a lesser-known aspect of...

Manifesto for a New Medicine
James S. Gordon
0201898284
Jan 1996
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Gordon, chair of the advisory council to the National Institutes of Health Office of Alternative Medicine, takes aim at the current abyss between the orthodox biomedical community and alternative practitioners. Advocating a compassionate partnership between the two, he builds a case for collaboration through client studies and persuasive personal testimonies of healthcare victories. Gordon encourages communication and cooperation between these two worlds to address the drawbacks of an illness-oriented medical model burdened with the costs of chronic care. Historical forces of the wellness movement, principles of self-help, and concepts of teamwork are woven into a tapestry he calls the "therapeutic partnership." Gordon issues an important mandate for an integrated and individualized biopsychosocial medicine to meet...

The Real Hornblower: The Life and Times of Admiral Sir James Gordon, GCB
Bryan Perrett
1557509689
May 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Ever since C.S. Forester's fictional hero Horatio Hornblower began to delight readers, there has been speculation that his adventures were based on the career of a real naval officer. Several names were suggested, but the general conclusion was that Hornblower was a composite character. In this thoroughly researched book the author argues convincingly that Forester's model was Adm. James Gordon, a flesh-and-blood hero of Nelson's navy. Gordon entered the Royal Navy as a semi-literate eleven-year-old and rose to become Admiral of the Fleet. He took part in major sea battles, frigate actions, single-ship duels, and operations far behind enemy lines. It was the fire of Gordon's ships against Fort McHenry that inspired the American national anthem. When he died, after more than seventy-five years of service in the navy,...
