(Book). The effect that Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl have had upon contemporary music is immeasurable. They brought "alternative" to the masses in a way that no other punk or metal band had before or has since. By combining their varied influences, they created a distinct voice that hit the right chord with the music world at that time. Their undisputed reign as the purveyors of a bold new generation of music came to an abrupt and tragic end when Cobain took his own life in April of 1994. The legacy left behind is recorded in this insightful book of the words that shook the music world. It presents the lyrics with little interference or interpretation so that they can speak for themselves. In the quiet absence of the music, the lyrics for 67 songs, including all of their commercial releases, plus all B sides and selected rare cuts take on a life of their own. The range of emotions and ideas distilled in this one concentrated volume is huge. This poetic approach to the band whose work had such an impact, both then and now, will give fans and readers something new that they can take back to the listening experience of their favorite Nirvana songs. "This was the sound of psychic damage, and an entire generation recognized it." Jeff Giles, Newsweek "Nirvana doesn't bash you over the head with lyrics, anyway. They imply, they suggest, leave it open to interpretation." Daina Darzin, Village Voice

Nirvana was the first grunge-rock band to achieve international popularity. Their surprisingly melodic yet deafeningly loud sound behind stark and unsettling lyrics reflected a deep-seated sense of anger, alienation, and hopelessness regarding contemporary life and culture. Their success brought attention to Seattle as one of the most vital musical centers, inspired a fashion craze favoring dirty, baggy jeans, flannel shirts, and combat boots, and brought grunge rock to the forefront of our musical culture. This companion illuminates the already illustrious lives and careers of Superstars Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Krist Novoselic and David Grohl.

This indispensable volume is a lucid and faithful account of the Buddha’s teachings. “For years,” says the Journal of the Buddhist Society, “the newcomer to Buddhism has lacked a simple and reliable introduction to the complexities of the subject. Dr. Rahula’s What the Buddha Taught fills the need as only could be done by one having a firm grasp of the vast material to be sifted. It is a model of what a book should be that is addressed first of all to ‘the educated and intelligent reader.’ Authoritative and clear, logical and sober, this study is as comprehensive as it is masterly.” This edition contains a selection of illustrative texts from the Suttas and the Dhammapada (specially translated by the author), sixteen illustrations, and a bibliography, glossary, and index.

Depolarizing Food and Agriculture

Many issues in food and agriculture are portrayed as increasingly polarized. These include industrial vs. sustainable agriculture, conventional vs. organic production methods, and global vs. local food sourcing, to name only three. This book addresses the origins, validity, consequences, and potential resolution of these and other divergences. Political and legal actions have resulted in significant monetary and psycho-social costs for groups on both sides of these divides. Rhetoric on many issues has caused misinformation and confusion among consumers, who are unsure about the impact of their food choices on nutrition, health, the environment, animal welfare, and hunger. In some cases distrust has intensified to embitterment on both sides of many issues, and even to violence. The book uses economic principles to help readers better understand the divisiveness that prevails in the agricultural production, food processing and food retailing industries. The authors propose solutions to promote resolution and depolarization between advocates with seemingly irreconcilable differences. A multifaceted, diverse, but targeted approach to food production and consumption is suggested to promote social well-being, and reduce or eliminate misinformation, anxiety, transaction costs and hunger.
