Description : Why do humans hold onto traditions? Many pundits predicted that modernization and the rise of a mass culture would displace traditions, especially in America, but cultural practices still bear out the importance of rituals and customs in the development of identity, heritage, and community. In Explaining Traditions: Folk Behavior in Modern Culture, Simon J. Bronner discusses the underlying reasons for the continuing significance of traditions, delving into their social and psychological roles in everyday life, from old-time crafts to folk creativity on the Internet. Challenging prevailing notions of tradition as a relic of the past, Explaining Traditions provides deep insight into the nuances and purposes of living traditions in relation to modernity. Bronner’s work forces readers to examine their own traditions and imparts a better understanding of raging controversies over the sustainability of traditions in the modern world.

Description : With Grace held at Hammel, it’s down to her lover Benedict Thomas and the other “abnormals” he and Grace rescued to return the favour. Yet going back to the institute holds a special danger for Benedict – it was there that his powers were used to “train” others… and to kill those who didn’t make the grade. Facing the nightmare of his past is one thing, but there is another that worries him even more: that he is playing right into the hands of the enemy.

Description : Bradley Wiggins is a British sporting legend. Not only has he won seven World Track Championships and a record-equalling seven Olympic medals, including double-gold in Beijing in 2008 and gold in the time trial in London in 2012, he is the first Briton to have won cycling's ultimate prize, the Tour de France. He is an immensely talented and dedicated endurance athlete with a gritty, down-to-earth persona - cool, outspoken, respected, inspiring - and he has helped to bring track and road cycling to a new audience in the UK. With new material by Brendan Gallagher, co-author of the original edition, this is the story of a boy with bikes in his blood, of a son abandoned by his father and of the journey from council estate to the very pinnacle of the sport. IN PURSUIT OF GLORY is a compelling, no-holds-barred account of Wiggins' rise to global success and an extraordinary insight into the world of cycling.

Description : 'Dogs are better than men, because?' So says the poster on Izzy Palmer's fridge, and she's only half joking. At a long-planned murder party, Izzy has to play scheming little tart Emerald without her boyfriend, Leo, who's let her down yet again. Cast in fiendish skullduggery with Nick, who would have been improved by a spot of murder himself, Izzy can only grit her teeth and play along. Not content with insulting her dog and telling her to hold her stomach in, Nick then has the gall to turn halfway human just as Izzy's decided she can't stand him. Still, at least he makes Leo just a little bit jealous at last, but that's all that can be said for him. Until she faces the one heartbreak she'd never imagined...
