Into the Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

International bestseller! James Bond has nothing on Dusko Popov. a double agent for the Abwehr, MI5 and MI6, and the FBI during World War II, Popov seduced numerous women, spoke five languages, and was a crack shot, all while maintaining his cover as a Yugoslavian diplomat… On a cool August evening in 1941, a Serbian playboy created a stir at Casino Estoril in Portugal by throwing down an outrageously large baccarat bet to humiliate his opponent. The Serbian was a British double agent, and the money―which he had just stolen from the Germans―belonged to the British. From the sideline, watching with intent interest was none other than Ian Fleming… The Serbian was Dusko Popov. As a youngster, he was expelled from his London prep school. Years later he would be arrested and banished from Germany for making derogatory statements about the Third Reich. When World War II ensued, the playboy became a spy, eventually serving three dangerous masters: the Abwehr, MI5 and MI6, and the FBI. On August 10, 1941, the Germans sent Popov to the United States to construct a spy network and gather information on Pearl Harbor. The FBI ignored his German questionnaire, but J. Edgar Hoover succeeded in blowing his cover. While MI5 desperately needed Popov to deceive the Abwehr about the D-Day invasion, they assured him that a return to the German Secret Service Headquarters in Lisbon would result in torture and execution. He went anyway... Into the Lion’s Mouth is a globe-trotting account of a man’s entanglement with espionage, murder, assassins, and lovers―including enemy spies and a Hollywood starlet. It is a story of subterfuge and seduction, patriotism, and cold-blooded courage. It is the story of Dusko Popov―the inspiration for James Bond. INCLUDES PHOTOGRAPHS

In 1498, an orphan can't expect much out of life. But the Renaissance is burgeoning, and Venice ripe with infinite possibilities. Nico is a child of the city, and his veins run with canal water. Rising above his lowly status, apprentice to a painter, just might be possible in the city of bridges. He's determined to use his wit and wile to become something more than another errand boy. But his hopes come crashing to the ground when he witnesses deception in Venice's inner circle. To escape the vengeance of the corrupt Lord Foscari, Nico travels half a world away to safety. But danger follows him to the streets of Constantinople where he discovers a peril looms over Venice that threatens to destroy it. Now he's forced to make a choice: stay safe in a foreign land and let Venice fall or risk his life to save everything he loves. Can he save his city, or will he lose his life trying?

From the Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

Iain Campbell has been fascinated by mountains for as long as he can remember. In his new book, he tells the story of a journey following the course of the Indus River from its mouth in the mudflats of Karachi through the Karakorum, Kashmir and the Himalayas to its source in Ladakh on the Indian side of the Tibetan plateau, where it springs from the 'Lion's Mouth' on Mount Kailash. His narrative paints an insightful, honest and heartfelt portrait of Pakistan, a country that through all his wanderings of the deserts and mountains of Asia kept drawing him back, and a place which combines a rich religious heritage with some of the most spectacular mountains in the world. Engrossing and eye-opening, Iain Campbell's account of his travels through this mesmerising land will appeal to travellers, mountaineers, trekkers, wilderness enthusiasts, anyone interested in the culture and history of the subcontinent, and fans of quality travel writing.

In the Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

"In the Lion’s Mouth is essential reading for scholars and field workers advancing humanitarian aid and human rights in the developing world. The book also provides cogent insight and information for clinicians who implement community mental health." Dr. David Swanger, Professor Emeritus, University of. California, Santa Cruz "This book reminds us that precursors of counseling and therapy have been in practice for thousands of years around the world and that counseling was not a Euro-American invention of the last few decades. Lewis Aptekar brings us with him as he seeks to reframe counseling and therapy 'outside the envelope'" Dr Paul B. Pedersen, Professor Emeritus, Syracuse University "Lewis Aptekar is one of the few scholars who places respect for the reality experienced by the people he studies above the illusion of the “categories” used in humanitarian aid. This ethical principle guides him and confronts him with dilemmas that an intelligent inquirer cannot avoid when facing people in difficult situations." Dr. Daniel Stoecklin, Professor, Institut Universitaire Kurt Bosh, IUKB, Children’s Rights Unit, Sion, Switzerland “Can you imagine yourself living in Kaliti, a displaced person's camp in Ethiopia because you want to know what it's like to be such a person in such a place? But it's not just curiosity that takes you there. You are a skilled, well-practiced observer of human behavior in situ, so you know what to look for, what to record. And you are a first-class writer, easy to read, whose accounts of what he saw and heard are transmitted with enough detail, enough conveying of emotion that the reader is simultaneously moved while being informed, that you feel as if you, too, are there, in this camp in Ethiopia. The author of this compelling account of the strengths and weaknesses of humanitarian aid programs as exemplified by this particular but not atypical instance is Lewis Aptekar. This book is, in my opinion, as good as his earlier two classics, Street Children of Cali (1988) and Emotional Disasters in Global perspective (1994).” Dr. Marshall Segall, Professor Emeritus, Syracuse University

Save me from the Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

Save Me From the Lion's Mouth investigates the increasing conflict between people and wildlife in Africa and what needs to be done about it. It describes the human suffering and perceptions of those who live outside the reserve fences among man-eaters and marauders yet are excluded from the economic benefits accruing from the wildlife around them. It provides evidence of a growing resentment among rural communities, especially near game reserves and warns how it is threatening the existence of Africa’s game reserves. The book suggests that many in the Northern Hemisphere who support African wildlife conservation are blind to the seriousness of the situation. Some African states – notably Kenya and Tanzania – adopt wildlife policies to please donor countries from whom they receive millions of dollars. Thus government policies, many of them patently disastrous and certainly detrimental to rural Africans and to wildlife, are dictated from middle class homes across Europe and America. Fortunately there is a growing international lobby that is seeking solutions.

The Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

The country’s new female prime minister has been shot dead and the gun can’t be found in Anne Holt’s fourth mystery in the award-winning, internationally bestselling Hanne Wilhelmsen books that are “a natural for Jo Nesbø readers” (Booklist, starred review). Less than six months after taking office, the Norwegian Prime Minister is found dead. She has been shot in the head. Was it a politically motivated assassination or personal revenge? Hanne Wilhelmsen, chief inspector of the Oslo police, is on leave in California, but when the death shakes the country to its core, she knows she can’t remain on the sidelines of such a crucial investigation. The hunt for the Prime Minister’s killer is complicated, intense, and grueling. When secrets begin to unravel from the Prime Minister’s past, Hanne and her partner, Billy T., must solve the crime before a private tragedy becomes a public scandal in the most sensitive case of their careers. Filled with lies, deception, and the truth about government, “The Lion’s Mouth tackles the ruthlessness of political power [in] the most sensitive investigation of Hanne Wilhelmsen’s career” (Financial Times). “The wonder and pleasure…is in how Ms. Holt weaves the strands of a political thriller, a police procedural, a locked-room mystery, and a domestic novel into a satisfying plot” (The Wall Street Journal).

The Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

n The Lion's Mouth, an Italian-Canadian woman, Bianca, tells the story of her beloved cousin, Marco, whose life is disintegrating along with his city - Venice. Marco is her dark twin, her Italian self. As she tries to make sense of her cousin's breakdown, she describes her story and reflects on her immigrant and Canadian experiences, coming to terms with her dual cultures. The novel is multifaceted - a thriller, a study of social mores in Italy and Canada, a portrait of Venice, a self-reflexive account - and yet the whole is seamless, powerful, and elegant.

Bread from the Lion s Mouth Book Excerpt:

The newly awakened interest in the lives of craftspeople in Turkey is highlighted in this collection, which uses archival documents to follow Ottoman artisans from the late 15th century to the beginning of the 20th. The authors examine historical changes in the lives of artisans, focusing on the craft organizations (or guilds) that underwent substantial changes over the centuries. The guilds transformed and eventually dissolved as they were increasingly co-opted by modernization and state-building projects, and by the movement of manufacturing to the countryside. In consequence by the 20th century, many artisans had to confront the forces of capitalism and world trade without significant protection, just as the Ottoman Empire was itself in the process of dissolution.

IN THE LIONS MOUTH AND OTHER STORIES Book Excerpt:

B>In this book of short stories I have compiled some of my writing and ideas on a life past and present. Ever wonder what would happen if it started snowing and never stopped...never ever stopped? How would we exist? Where would we live? Or what about the young soldiers in the Great War who were shot at dawn after a court martial. Have you ever considered the feelings of those who pulled the trigger? Perhaps you are in a sailing boat wondering how a Vikinglong ship has come to be just off the starboard bow. Is it daydream? Well, is it? Or have you noticed police officers on duty, perhaps on television? Ever wondered what they fear? What they carry forever locked inside? Their ghosts? In life there is presumption that we know and understand how others think, feel and fear. Always trying to make the best of circumstances we find ourselves in. I call this the human condition. No matter what that condition, I have found the human spirit always shines through. You just need to know where to look .Life is for living. Stories are for reading. Enjoy.
