Craig and the Midas Touch Book Excerpt:

The oil-rich middle eastern state of Jubayl is peacefully led by a long-serving and well-respected Emir, but that peace is shattered when his son and heir is found weighted in a watery grave beneath a leased oil rig. Peter Craig, overseas police adviser for the British Government, is in the region lecturing on couterinsurgency when his Embassy proffers his services to help find the killer. The chief suspect, an oil company worker with motive – his ex-girlfriend’s liaisons with the dead sheikh – looks to have been framed, but the ‘evidence’ against him is damning unless Craig can present proof that he has been set up, and find another credible suspect. How is the sale of the oil platform to a neighbouring state linked to a local pimp and businessman? And who has most to gain from the death? What had the Sheikh's network of spies discovered? When the final events of the intricate grand plan start to play out, the stakes are far higher than Craig could have anticipated and will call on all his skills and experience to avert international disaster in the Middle East.

The Triumph of Venus Book Excerpt:

The theory of law and economics that dominates American jurisprudence today views the market as rational and individuals as driven by the desire to increase their wealth. It is a view riddled with misconceptions, as Jeanne Lorraine Schroeder demonstrates in this challenging work, which looks at contemporary debates in legal theory through the lens of psychoanalysis and continental philosophy. Through metaphors drawn from classical mythology and interpreted via Lacanian psychoanalysis and Hegelian philosophy, Schroeder exposes the hidden and repressed erotics of the market. Her work shows how the predominant economic analysis of markets and the standard romantic critique of markets are in fact mirror images, reflecting the misconception that reason and passion are inalterably opposed.

The Golden Age of King Midas Book Excerpt:

Gordion is frequently remembered as the location of an intricate knot ultimately cut by Alexander, but in antiquity it served as the center of the Phrygian kingdom that ruled much of Asia Minor during the early millennium B.C.E. The site lies approximately seventy kilometers southeast of Ankara in central Turkey, at the intersection of the great empires of the East (Assyrians, Babylonians, and Hittites) and the West (Greeks and Romans). Consequently, it occupied a strategic position on nearly all trade routes that linked the Mediterranean and the Near East. The University of Pennsylvania has been excavating at Gordion since 1950, unearthing a wide range of discoveries that span nearly four millennia. The vast majority of these artifacts attests to the city's interactions with the other great kingdoms and city states of the Near East during the Iron Age and Archaic periods (ca. 950-540 B.C.E.), especially Assyria, Urartu, Persia, Lydia, Greece, and the Neo-Hittite city-states of North Syria, among others. Gordion is thus the ideal centerpiece of an exhibition dealing with Anatolia and its neighbors during the first millennium B.C.E. Through a special agreement signed between the Republic of Turkey and the University of Pennsylvania, Turkey has loaned the Penn Museum more than one hundred artifacts gathered from four museums in Turkey (Ankara, Gordion, Istanbul, and Antalya) for an exhibition titled The Golden Age of King Midas. The exhibition features most of the material recovered in Tumulus MM, or the "Midas Mound" (ca. 740 B.C.E.), which was the burial site of King Midas's father, as well as a number of objects found in a series of Lydian tombs. The Turkish loan has made possible a uniquely comprehensive and elaborate exhibition that also features a disparate group of rarely seen objects from the Penn Museum's own collections, particularly from sites in the Ukraine, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Greece. With the historic King Midas (ca. 740-700 B.C.E.) as its guiding theme, the exhibition illuminates the relationships Phrygia maintained with Lydia, Persia, Assyria, and Greece. The accompanying catalog includes full-color illustrations and essays that expound on the sites and objects of the exhibition.

The Last Word Book Excerpt:

The Last Word by Yusuf Dawood concludes the quartet of the Surgeon's Diary - in book format. The other three are Yesterday Today and Tomorrow, Off my Chest, and Behind the Mask. The beautifully executed stories in the Last Word are adorned with occurrences from the author's extensive travels and medical experiences, some heart-rending and others with exultant endings. Dawood's stories are lit with humor and wit that make the myriad medical challenges seem surmountable. The stories though appearing in the Surgeon's Diary are fresh and authentic. Just like in the other three titles that form the quartet, the author has once again used his scalpel and pen with prowess to bring real surgical drama to our doorstep. Dawood, a celebrated surgeon and formidable author, has authored The Price of Living, One Life too Many, Water Under the Bridge, among others. The Last Word is his eleventh title.

In touch with the future Book Excerpt:

Out of all the human senses, touch is the one that is most often unappreciated, and undervalued. Yet, the surface of the human body, the skin, is actually one huge sheet of tactile receptors. It provides us with the means to connect with our surroundings. Despite the important role that vision plays in our everyday lives, it is the skin that constitutes both the oldest, and by far the largest of our sense organs. The skin protects our body from the external world and, at the same time, informs us about what occurs on its surface. In Touch With The Future explores the science of touch, bringing together the latest findings from cognitive neuroscience about the processing of tactile information in humans. The book provides a comprehensive overview of scientific knowledge regarding themes such as tactile memory, tactile awareness (consciousness), tactile attention, the role of touch in interpersonal and sexual interactions, and the neurological substrates of touch. It highlights the many ways in which our growing understanding of the world of touch can, and in some cases already are, being applied in the real world in everything from the development of virtual reality (VR) environments, tablet PCs, mobile phones, and even teledildonics - the ultimate frontier in terms of adult entertainment. In addition, the book shows how the cognitive neuroscience approach to the study of touch can be applied to help improve the design of many real-world applications/products as well as to many of our everyday experiences, such as those related to the appreciation of food, marketing, packaging design, the development of enhanced sensory substitution systems, art, and man-machine interfaces. Crucially, the authors makes a convincing argument for the view that one cannot really understand touch, especially not in a real-world context, without placing it in a multisensory context. That is, the senses interact to influence tactile perception in everything - from changing the feel of a surface or product by changing the sound it makes or the fragrance it has. For students and researchers in the brain sciences, this book presents a valuable and fascinating exploration into one of our least understood senses

Astrology Of America Book Excerpt:

There are thousands of highly practical and often entertaining astrology books freely available to consumers who have become familiar with the basic parameters of astrology. The authors of these books, and most other astrologers, analyze only the "ten planets"--the sun and the nine planets of our solar system. Author William Noah asserts that this simple method is insufficient because the energy of mankind is not solely captured in the planets. Noah's all-inclusive work serves as a tutorial and reference for the world of asteroids and planets. Of the thousands of asteroids in the universe, Noah has selected twenty key asteroids that are the most relevant to the events, experiences, encounters, and future possibilities of the astrology-interested public. Noah's comprehensive work includes: Charts with meaning and symbolism of zodiac signs and houses Lists of planetary symbolism and meaning Alignment of chart interpretation with the complementary astro-mythic energy characterization of triangular Grand Trine formations depicting the meaning and permanent effect for life momentum Natal charts for every president of the United States Natal charts for popular American celebrities The "Astrology of America" goes beyond analysis of the planets to prepare horoscopes by introducing preselected asteroids into the astrological mix. Noah believes his use of these asteroids, along with planetary placement, builds a framework that identifies the surest way to reach success and meaning in life.
