At a time when Americans were so riveted by questions about their place in a newly hostile world and were swearing off air travel, Elinor Burkett did not just take a trip -- she took a headlong dive into enemy territories. Her yearlong odyssey began with her assignment as a Fulbright Professor teaching journalism in Kyrgyzstan, a faded fragment of Soviet might in the heart of Central Asia -- a place of dilapidated apartments, bizarre food, and demoralized citizens clinging to the safety of Brother Russia. She then journeyed to Afghanistan and Iraq -- where she mingled with tense Iraqis, watching the gathering storm clouds of an American-led invasion -- as well as Iran, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, China, and Vietnam. Whether she's writing about being served goat's head in a Kyrgyz yurt, checking out bowling alleys in Baghdad, or trying to cook a chicken in a crumbling apartment, Burkett offers an eclectic series of adventures that are alternately comical, poignant, and discomfiting.

“You need to stop all this yoga crap and find your inner badass again.” Old love. New Love. A love you wish would just die. A kinder, gentler Lilly? Small-town lawyer Lilly Atkins has calmed down. She’s doing yoga, her hair is relatively tame, and she hasn’t shot anyone in a while. But with bad boy Cash Stetson out of rehab, former FBI agent-turned-attorney Spencer Locke dogging her steps and a ghost from her past who just won’t go away, her trigger finger is starting to feel itchy. When cattle rustlers hit a little too close to home, and she’s forbidden to investigate, the only thing to do is get up off the yoga mat and grab her gun. Will Lilly stay zen? Or get her groove back?

Force ratios are an important variable in warfare and in nature. On the Serengeti, large zebra herds are hunted by small prides of lions. But with their overwhelming majority, why don¿t the zebras unite and attack the lions? Ecological interactions between predators and their prey are complex. The mathematics underlying different types of survival strategies for attacker and evader have been worked out by ecologists. While not a perfect metaphor, these quantitative ecology models greatly resemble behavioral interactions during counterinsurgency operations. This paper suggests a framework for other researchers to adapt and expand. Indeed, many of the models discussed are common to both ecologists and economists.

Throughout his life James Boswell struggled to fashion a clear account of himself, but try as he might he could not reconcile the truths of his era with those of his religious upbringing. Few periods better crystallize this turmoil than 1763–1765, the years of his Grand Tour and the focus of Robert Zaretsky’s thrilling intellectual adventure.

It’s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders’ tight leather garb? What’s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.

Robinson Crusoe is one of the most famous literary characters in history, and his story has spawned hundreds of retellings. Inspired by the life of Alexander Selkirk, a sailor who lived for several years on a Pacific island, the novel tells the story of Crusoe’s survival after shipwreck on an island, interaction with the mainland’s native inhabitants, and eventual rescue. Read variously as economic fable, religious allegory, or imperialist fantasy, Crusoe has never lost its appeal as one of the most compelling adventure stories of all time. In addition to an introduction and helpful notes, this Broadview Edition includes a wide range of appendices that situate Defoe’s 1719 novel amidst castaway narratives, economic treatises, reports of cannibalism, explorations of solitude, and Defoe’s own writings on slavery and the African trade. A final appendix presents images of Crusoe’s rescue of Friday from a dozen of the most significant illustrated editions of the novel published between 1719 and 1920.

An enchanting, powerful fable as timely today as a century ago, A Tale without a Name is the first-ever translation of this classic fairy tale for all ages, inspiring to children and adults alike, written by Penelope S. Delta, a Greek aristocrat straight out of a novel by E.M. Forster. This is a tale with no name, set in a Kingdom of no specific time or place. There, an old King and an ageing Queen cling to the ghost of a memory long lost. There are Princesses: two royally spoilt pernickety, capricious, empty-headed and imperiously stubborn - and a third - the youngest - sweet, regal and noble. And there a Prince - a proper Prince, brimming with the stuff great tales are made of - has to make a choice to perish or be reborn, to abandon his country and let it follow the path to perdition, or give it new life. His task is to learn a new way of life and, what is more, to learn how to teach it. To build again that which has been broken, to correct the failing and the wrong. With a little bit of help and words of wisdom along the way, the Prince will rebuild and inspire the subjects of his Kingdom. Penelope S. Delta's A Tale without a Name is translated from the Greek and charmingly illustrated with all-new black and white drawings throughout by Mika Provata-Carlone, and published by Pushkin Press. The Greek writer Penelope S. Delta was born in Alexandria, Egypt, in 1874. She wrote children's books, memoirs, historical studies, articles on children's education and welfare. She was a true philanthropist, a woman of remarkable spirit and intelligence. Her life was surrounded by political turmoil: her father, a cotton merchant who became the Mayor of Athens, was almost executed during the 1916 clashes between royalists and Venizelists; the diplomat and writer Ion Dragoumis, with whom Delta fell passionately in love, was assassinated. She ultimately took her own life in April 1941, on the day the Nazis entered Athens.
