Climate change is the most important crisis humanity has faced, but we still confront huge barriers to resolving it. So, what do we do, and is there hope for humanity? The problem itself is complex, and there’s no single solution. But by understanding the barriers to resolving global warming and by employing a wide range of solutions—from shifting to clean energy to planting trees to reforming agricultural practices—we can get the world back on track. Just Cool It is David Suzuki at his most passionate. In this book, he offers a comprehensive look at the current state of climate science and knowledge and the many ways to resolve the climate crisis, imploring us to do what’s necessary to live in a better, cleaner future. When enough people demand action, change starts happening—and this time, it could be monumental.

Ghosts In the Wire is a vivid first-person account of what many veterans experienced upon their return from the war in Vietnam. It is a sequel to Rast's first book--Don's Nam, which quintessentially depicts his tour of duty in Vietnam during 1969 and 70 with the Orient Express. Rast eloquently and passionately takes the reader on a gut-wrenching roller coaster ride of flash-backs, horror, courage, and outlandish humor that is presented unlike the headlines and TV news could ever hope to depict. It is essential, poignant reading for those veterans who were in Nam and cannot forget, and also for those who were not there, but strive to understand the electrifying intensity, and often surrealistic events that war and its aftermath creates. The events and characters jump to life from his old muddy diary, which was locked in a footlocker for twenty-eight years, and leave the reader crying, laughing, or just plainly boiling with rage as this dramatic story unfolds in a manner that is truly spellbinding.

New York's favourite rogue detective, Joe Pitt, is about to find himself caught in a nasty power struggle between competing Vampyre clans. Down to his last few bags of blood and behind on rent, Joe takes on a decidedly dirty job: finding the source of a powerful drug that's hit the street, one strong enough to affect Vampyres and make its users do unpredictable things, things that could bring unwelcome exposure to New York's Vampyre community. Unfortunately, that entails crossing the mid-Manhattan turf of the Coalition into the equally fearsome territory of the Hood in Harlem. One thing about Vampyres: they have plenty of time on their bloodstained hands to engage in complex, violent feuds. Worse, Joe might be some powerful player's idea of a sacrificial pawn ...

Fifty-two essays exploring identity, literature, immigration, and politics by one of the godfathers of Chicano literature In his essay “The New World Man,” Rudolfo Anaya writes, “I stand poised at the center of power, the knowing of myself, the heart and soul of the New World man alive in me.” Best known for his novel Bless Me, Ultima, which established him as one of the founders of Chicano literature, The Essays illustrates Anaya’s gift for storytelling and his deep connection to the land and its history. These intimate and contemplative essays explore censorship, immigration, urban development, the Southwest as a region, and personal identity. In “Aztlan: A Homeland Without Boundaries,” he discusses the reimagining of the modern Chicano community through ancient myth and legend; in “The Spirit of Place,” he explores the historical connection between literature and the earth. Some essays are autobiographical, some argumentative; all are passionate. A must-have for Anaya fans and readers of Chicano literature, this book will also appeal to anyone eager to explore contemporary America through fresh eyes.

Psychedelic: Adjective: - of or noting a mental state characterized by a profound sense of intensified sensory perception, sometimes accompanied by severe perceptual distortion and hallucinations and by extreme feelings of either euphoria or despair. The later years of the 1960s saw the rise in more avant-garde music as artists and musicians began to experiment with mind altering substances. Beginning with the hippie movement in America and rapidly spreading across the Atlantic to Britain, this period in music saw bands such as The Beatles - free from their touring commitments - together with The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and many others make use of sensory altering concoctions to reach new heights of artistic creativity. This is the story of those years.
