Books Description:

Love Poems and Others by D.H Lawrence features thirty-two poems of various lengths. With themes of love, marriage, gender, sexuality and emotional health, Lawrence’s work is both relatable and revolutionary. Separated into three sections, Love Poems and Others addresses an eclectic variety of human struggles. The first section, Love Poems explores how gender changes the expectations of love and sex. Through the portrayal of the search for love, this section examines the almost violent human need for connection, pondering how society both enables and prevents this instinctual need. The next section, Dialect reproduces and preserves the language and concerns of the people in Nottinghamshire, England, a county in the East Midlands in which D.H Lawrence spent most of his youth. Through the honest depiction of this region, modern-day readers are afforded the privileged understanding of this historic area as Lawrence portrays the intricacies of the people who once lived there. The final section of Love Poems and Others is titled Schoolmaster. Following the narrative of a schoolmaster, this section explores themes of masculinity and youth. Each of the thirty-two poems featured in Love Poems and Others is crafted with masterful rhythm, vivid imagery, and tender sentiment. Through the use of accessible language and relatable themes, Lawrence explores the taboo and unspoken in his poetry, provoking strong reactions. Including provocative perspectives, honest depictions, and representation of a local culture and dialect, Love Poems and Others proves to be as insightful as it is beautiful. Originally published over one-hundred years ago in 1915, D.H Lawrence’s Love Poems and Others simultaneously preserves the culture and customs of his time while also addressing social issues that modern society still struggles with, attesting to the timelessness of the human spirit. Featuring fan-favorite poems such as Lilies in the Fire and Dog-Tired, this edition of Love Poems and Others by D.H Lawrence is now presented with a stunning new cover design and is printed in an easy-to-read font. With these accommodations, modern readers are able to appreciate the gorgeous and substantial verses of the prolific and provocative author and poet, D.H Lawrence.

Books Description:

With the same unique vision that brought his now classic Mars trilogy to vivid life, bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson boldly imagines an alternate history of the last seven hundred years. In his grandest work yet, the acclaimed storyteller constructs a world vastly different from the one we know. . . . “A thoughtful, magisterial alternate history from one of science fiction’s most important writers.”—The New York Times Book Review It is the fourteenth century and one of the most apocalyptic events in human history is set to occur—the coming of the Black Death. History teaches us that a third of Europe’s population was destroyed. But what if the plague had killed 99 percent of the population instead? How would the world have changed? This is a look at the history that could have been—one that stretches across centuries, sees dynasties and nations rise and crumble, and spans horrible famine and magnificent innovation. Through the eyes of soldiers and kings, explorers and philosophers, slaves and scholars, Robinson navigates a world where Buddhism and Islam are the most influential and practiced religions, while Christianity is merely a historical footnote. Probing the most profound questions as only he can, Robinson shines his extraordinary light on the place of religion, culture, power—and even love—in this bold New World. “Exceptional and engrossing.”—New York Post “Ambitious . . . ingenious.”—Newsday

Books Description:

Vistas in Astronomy, Volume 10 covers topics related to philosophy, dynamics, astrometry, astro-archeology, correlations, astrophysics, history, instrumentation, and cosmogony. The volume discusses some fundamental problems arising from the paper “Is Religion Refuted by Physics or Astronomy? with focus on thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and the universe. The criteria that will take account of previous criticisms and results in astro-archeology that may be assessed in terms of the said criteria; the planetary theory of Copernicus; and a comparison of Romer's Triduum observations and Flamsteed's observations are also explained. The volume describes an application of the four-body problem in the general behavior of the synchronous orbit in the presence of the Moon and the Sun. An analysis of linear correlation in astronomy; the design and construction of astronomical telescopes; and advances in the knowledge of the nature of open clusters resulting mainly through accurate photometry of stars in cluster fields are also discussed. The book also considers the polarization of the continuous radiation in the optical (and particularly visual) spectral region as well as the planetary cosmogonical ideas and theories. People involved in astronomy and philosophy will find the volume invaluable.

Books Description:

#1 New York Times Bestseller Over 1 million copies sold In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

The three Cadogan children, Jessica, Kirsty and Patrick, haven't spoken to each other for three years. An argument after their mother's death was the latest excuse to blame one another for their family's troubles in a long, unhappy series that's lasted almost a decade. When their father, Gerry, dies they are given instructions as to where he wants his ashes to be scattered. But first they must together drive his old camper van up the country to the Scottish Isle of Islay. For the journey, he's given them his old fishing tackle box containing three photo albums through which they can explore their past, and a bottle of single malt whisky he had been saving for the 70th birthday he never reached. Along the way, they'll be forced to confront the most painful moments in their shared history, lay to rest a ghost who's haunted them for years - and maybe even become a family again.

When Scotland Was Jewish

Books Description:

The popular image of Scotland is dominated by widely recognized elements of Celtic culture. But a significant non–Celtic influence on Scotland’s history has been largely ignored for centuries? This book argues that much of Scotland’s history and culture from 1100 forward is Jewish. The authors provide evidence that many of the national heroes, villains, rulers, nobles, traders, merchants, bishops, guild members, burgesses, and ministers of Scotland were of Jewish descent, their ancestors originating in France and Spain. Much of the traditional historical account of Scotland, it is proposed, rests on fundamental interpretive errors, perpetuated in order to affirm Scotland’s identity as a Celtic, Christian society. A more accurate and profound understanding of Scottish history has thus been buried. The authors’ wide-ranging research includes examination of census records, archaeological artifacts, castle carvings, cemetery inscriptions, religious seals, coinage, burgess and guild member rolls, noble genealogies, family crests, portraiture, and geographic place names.

* NOW WITH A NEW CHAPTER * 'A hugely enjoyable romp through the pleasures and pitfalls of setting up home in a foreign land.'- Guardian Given the opportunity of a new life in rural Jutland, Helen Russell discovered a startling statistic: Denmark, land of long dark winters, cured herring, Lego and pastries, was the happiest place on earth. Keen to know their secrets, Helen gave herself a year to uncover the formula for Danish happiness. From childcare, education, food and interior design to SAD and taxes, The Year of Living Danishly records a funny, poignant journey, showing us what the Danes get right, what they get wrong, and how we might all live a little more Danishly ourselves. In this new edition, six years on Helen reveals how her life and family have changed, and explores how Denmark, too – or her understanding of it – has shifted. It’s a messy and flawed place, she concludes – but can still be a model for a better way of living.
