Summary : Here is the book that Rolling Stone called "the first Doors biography that feels like it was written for the right reasons, and it is easily the most informed account of the Doors' brief but brilliant life as a group". From the Trade Paperback edition.
Summary : In this profound new book, Alastair McIntosh explores the science, psychology and spirituality of climate change. He summarizes the up-to-date science and shows the damage caused both by climate-change denial as well as exaggeration. In outlining the technological and policy options to cut greenhouse gases, he argues that neither will be anywhere near sufficient unless we grasp the 'twin drivers' - namely, world population and excess consumption - in ways that deepen people's dignity and freedom.This book's enduring importance will lie in the uniqueness of the remedies proposed: our urgent need to reconnect with the earth, to build community, and own inner lives of depth psychology and even spirituality. This transforms climate change into a chance to discover deeper aspects of our humanity. The result is a scintillating guide to what it takes to make us riders on the storm.
Summary : Sam McCain investigates the murder of a friend involved in an anti–Vietnam War group in this thrilling series finale by the Shamus Award–winning author. Iowa, 1971. When we last encountered Sam McCain, in author Ed Gorman’s “absorbing mystery” Ticket to Ride, he had been drafted to fight the war in Vietnam (Booklist). But Sam’s military career ended in boot camp when he was accidentally shot in the head and forced to spend three months recovering at a military hospital. Now Sam’s back in Black River Falls, where he works as a lawyer and investigator, just in time to witness two of his oldest friends come to blows. Veteran Steve Donovan savagely beats his friend and fellow veteran Will Cullen when Will joins an antiwar group. Then Will is found murdered and Steve becomes the primary suspect. But there are others in Black River Falls with reason to want Will dead. And Sam suspects he’ll discover even more before his investigation is over.

Summary : With the increase of natural disasters, droughts, and superstorms, it's clear that climate change isn't coming--it's here. The ecological crisis of climate change--and how we handle it--is the challenge of this century. Though policy changes or technological advances may help, they're not enough. We are in need of new ways of thinking and acting; new ways of understanding our relationship to the world. Riders in the Storm assesses the challenges of climate change through an interdisciplinary study, examining the basic scientific, political, economic, and moral dimensions through a framework of philosophical ethics. Equipped with colorful graphics and images, suggestions for further research and reading, and dialogue prompts, this text is a straightforward and engaging introduction to climate change.

Summary : We think of history as a list of dates, a highlighted page in a text book, a crumb trail of footnotes. But sometimes history is personal, as tangible as the touch of lips or the clench of a fist. Susan Streeter Carpenter takes us back in RIDERS ON THE STORM, her novel of the sixties, and of 1968 in particular. It's a year that makes us think--flower power, groovy, love beads--all the trappings of the counterculture, something to make fun of, to dress up a movie, the tie-dyed T-shirt as faded and dated as a flapper's beaded dress. But in Riders on the Storm you'll know 1968 as a year in the life of people who wanted to do right, to do better, who wanted to take the world with them to that better place. Ivy Barcelona, a college student in Cleveland, puts all of herself on the line for those aims. But it's not just about politics--it's about love (for had not the Summer of Love just passed?), about hard truths, about the conflicts that arise when the personal and the political collide. Ivy begins as a political naïf, burning with undifferentiated idealism, and we follow her on the journey to a more tempered humanism. The novel takes these young people and us into the shabby, ill-lit rooms where revolution is embraced, to the marches in Chicago during the Democratic Convention, to the tunnels under the city where something dangerous is plotted. Ivy is our guide, an unknowing one whose political and sentimental education are emblematic of a generation of searchers. The explosive ending is like a fire that illuminates the thirty odd years since then, the story we have to know to understand who we are now. Before 1968 shrinks away to a word in an old font on a dusty page, open RIDERS ON THE STORM and take the trip back to the era that shoved us into the future. -Mary Grimm, author of Left to Themselves
