The Gods of the Northern Tradition--the religion of the ancient Norse/Germanic/Anglo-Saxon peoples--have been rediscovered in growing numbers in the past years, as have the elves and dwarves that inhabit the Nine Worlds of the Cosmic Tree along with them. However, few have written about the Giants of those worlds and the Gods who number among them--Loki, Hela, Fenris, the World Serpent, and others--until now. The Jotunbok--the first book in the Northern-Tradition Shamanism series--is a collection of the wisdom, ways and tales of the Giants and their Gods, told by those who revere and work with them.

John Norman, author of the best-selling Fire Officer's Handbook of Tactics, brings his own remarkable story to life in this new highly anticipated memoir. But this is a story about allfirefighters--the men and women who are absolutely the salt of the earth, whose sole mission is to protect the lives and property of their neighbors. This book celebrates the lives of firefighters--a truly special group of people--and reintroduces them to the American public. What is a hero? A hero is a role model. To be a hero means protecting others at great personal risk because it's the right thing to do. "Since September 11, 2001," Norman writes, "people have been speaking about firefighters as 'America's Heroes.' I truly believe they are heroes in the classical sense of the word." Renowned for combining compelling storytelling with industry-standard tactical training, Norman offers an unparalleled look into the modern history of America's fire service from a front-row seat. This is a celebration of the best in public service, its sacrifices and triumphs, and the people who were there, who will insist with uncommon humility, "I was just doing my job."

These Guidelines will ensure the success of using working dogs (detection, tracking and apprehension/attack) at trial and assuring that the success of their recoveries is translated into convictions and a consequent reduction in wildlife crime. Many countries do not have specific legislation on how such evidence should be used but courts in many countries recognize that a dog has the ability to discriminate scent. Canine evidence is relevant and admissible in court if it makes the existence of any fact more probable or less probable than it would have been without that evidence.

For twelve-year-old Eric Johnson, leaving Philadelphia to live with his Uncle Al and Aunt Cindy in the country, after the accident that took his parents lives, was hard enough. Yet tragedies past seem to pale in the wake of becoming involved in a war of mythic pro-portions between the Norse gods of the Aesir and the Frost Giants, competing for domination of Midgard (Earth) and Asgard (realm of the Aesir). Eric befriends the mighty Thor, his father Odin, and brother Loki, along with the industrious Rock Dwarves and the Valkyrie to save his uncle, his friends, and ultimately the planet and realms beyond. This is a classic adventure, seen through a young boy's eyes as he learns to accept responsibility and grow into a man. Adults and young readers alike will enjoy this truly heroic tale. "The action's divine, the plot mischievously intricate, and the characters of epic proportion (literally and figuratively). Tossed into the sea of chaos is a likable young hero who manages to survive the twists of fate." Virginia G. McMorrow Author, Mage Confusion "Superb! This can only be the beginning of the adventures of Eric and Thor. I can't wait to see what challenges they face next." P.M. Griffin Author, The STAR COMMANDOS Series

From the mid-1950s to the early 1960s, when basketball’s Boston Celtics were piecing together a run for the ages, when Montreal’s Canadiens were in the midst of notching a record-setting five streaight Stanley Cups, and when the New York Yankees were the once-and-future kings of the diamond, one team boosted the NFL to national prominence as none other: the New York Giants. In Giants Among Men, Jack Cavanaugh, the acclaimed author of Tunney, transports us to the NFL’s golden age to introduce the close-knit and diverse group that won the heart of a city, helped spread the gospel of pro football across the nation, and recast the NFL as a media colossus. Central to Cavanaugh’s narrative, and emblematic of the Giants’ bond with their followers, was a hard-nosed future Hall of Fame defensive end named Andy Robustelli, who anchored a Giants defense unit so ferocious that they were the first team to inspire crowds to chant “Dee-fense!” But while Robustelli and the Giants were a hit on the gridiron, playing in six NFL Championship Games in eight seasons between 1956 and 1963, the most remarkable aspect of this team was perhaps its relationship with the fans, who were equally at east hobnobbing with Jackie Gleason and Frank Sinatra as they were rubbing elbows with working-class rooters on the IRT en route to Sunday games in the Bronx. But the Giants of this era didn’t merely affect the fans’ relationship to the game; they changed the game itself. The team launched the NFL careers of future head-coaching geniuses Tom Landry and Vince Lombardi, as well as those of future Hall of Famers including Frank Gifford, Sam Huff, Emlen Tunnell, Roosevelt Brown, and Y. A. Tittle, along with stars like Charlie Conerly, Rosey Grier, and Pat Summerall. Filled with historical and cultural insight and vivid portraits of large-than-life characters and indispensable everymen, Giants Among Men transcends nostalgia and sports trivia to faithfully depict a watershed era for both football and the American nation.

A world in chaos. 1911, a thirteen-year-old boy, Billy Williams, begins working down the mines as George V is crowned king. The escalating arms race between the empire nations will put not only the king but this young boy in grave danger. A terrible war. Billy’s family is inextricably linked with the Fitzherberts, the aristocratic owners of the coal mine where he works. And when Maud Fitzherbert falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German embassy in London, their destiny also becomes entangled with that of Gus Dewar, an ambitious young aide to Woodrow Wilson, and two orphaned Russian brothers, the Peshkovs, whose plan to emigrate to America falls foul of conscription, revolution and imminent war. A revolution that will change everything. When Russia convulses in bloody revolution and the Great War unfolds, the five families’ futures are entwined forever, love bringing them closer even as conflict takes them further apart. What seeds will be sown for further tragedy in the twentieth century and what role will each play in what is to come?

Mathematicians have pondered the psychology of the members of our tribe probably since mathematics was invented, but for certain since Hadamard’s The Psychology of Invention in the Mathematical Field. The editors asked two dozen prominent mathematicians (and one spouse thereof) to ruminate on what makes us different. The answers they got are thoughtful, interesting and thought-provoking. Not all respondents addressed the question directly. Michael Atiyah reflects on the tension between truth and beauty in mathematics. T.W. Körner, Alan Schoenfeld and Hyman Bass chose to write, reflectively and thoughtfully, about teaching and learning. Others, including Ian Stewart and Jane Hawkins, write about the sociology of our community. Many of the contributions range into philosophy of mathematics and the nature of our thought processes. Any mathematician will find much of interest here.
