Cold War

By Jerry Langton

Hardcover. New. Organized crime in Canada has long been dominated by the Hells Angels and their friends in the Rizzuto crime family. Over the years, they have brought many street gangs into their alliance, most notably the Indian Posse, many sets of the Crips, the Independent Soldiers and the Red Scorpions. The key to their allegiance is that, through a variety of sources, the Hells Angels and the Rizzutos could always get the commodities-marijuana, cocaine, meth, ecstasy, cash, steroids, women-that fed organized crime. But their strong-arm tactics have always created an opposition-the Cotroni family, the Musitanos, the Outlaws, the Bandidos, the Rock Machine-all less familiar names to Canadians. And the opposition is now standing up to the stalwart Canadian kingpins

The Last Duel: A True Story of Death and Honour

By James Landale

2006. Hardcover. New. The Last Duel is a compelling investigation of one of Europe's last recorded fatal duels by a BBC correspondent delving into his own family history. Using newly discovered archives and his family records and lore, James Landale reconstructs in vivid detail the deadly encounter between a Scottish merchant named David Landale and his banker in 1826, while also exploring the cultural and social circumstances that might explain why two rational, educated men might choose to resolve a minor business dispute by shooting at each other. Tracing the story of dueling itself, from its origins to its sudden loss of social legitimacy in the middle of the nineteenth century, Landale penetrates the curious concept called honor, which drove so many young men to an early death. ""The Last Duel"" is an utterly engrossing investigative history that, for the modern reader, renders the personal, social, and historical landscape of the time with an adept and revealing accuracy.

Hot Words For The Sat I

By Linda Carnevale

2001. Paperback. New. This entirely new book takes it title from an earlier Barron's vocabulary builder and SAT test prep book. Author Linda Carnevale presents hundreds of new words especially focused to prepare students to do their best in the all-important verbal skills section of the SAT I. ""Tough"" words that often confuse students, but which appear most frequently on the SAT I are presented with definitions, sample sentences, and explanations of word origins. This book's highly original approach to vocabulary building takes the form of a series of clusters -- words grouped together that have similar meanings. Short ""Words in Context"" quizzes appear throughout the book, and closely reflect questions as they appear on the actual SAT I.

Revolt In The Desert

By T.E. Lawrence

2005. Hardcover. New. This book, originally written in 1919, was printed for the author and his friends, not for general publication. Lawrence abridged the original work and the present volume is about one-half the size of the original. Lawrence stated that if he was asked why he had abridged an unsatisfactory book instead of recasting it as a history, he would plead that to do so nice a job in the barracks which were his home since 1922 would need a degree of concentration amounting in an airman to moroseness; and an interest in the subject which was exhausted long ago in the actual experience of it.

By Paperback

The American House and the Evolution of Modern Convience. The Age of Technology is nowhere made more personal than at home. Modern convenience shapes our daily routine, making today's American house a place of comfort, the like of which has never been known. Yet of all aspects of modern technology, it is the evolution of what is in the household that has been least written about.        In The Comforts of Home, an unprecedented work written for a general audience with no particular knowledge of science or technology, social historian Merritt Ierley weaves in aspects of architecture, social history, and technology to present an underexplored but central feature of American cultural identity: how our lives are shaped by the domestic technology around us. Here we see a simple brick cubicle with a stove inside it evolve into central heating, a barrel with a large handle become the automatic washing machine, a box lined with charcoal birth the modern refrigerator, and the modern toilet develop from a rudimentary stone trough.        The Comforts of Home charts the evolution of mechanical systems--from central heating to lighting, from kitchen to bathroom, from washing machine to vacuum cleaner--on which we all depend and without which most of us could hardly imagine surviving. It is also the story of the people responsible for the revolution of convenience in the home: people like Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, a British Loyalist, inventor and spy who fled his home in the American colonies in 1776. His genius of invention returned in the form of inventions with practical impact on everyday life in the household. Or like architects Benjamin Latrobe and James Gallier, Jr., who defined the cutting edge of modern convenience for their times. The Comforts of Home is also the story of ordinary people like David and Ida Eisenhower, who provided their son Dwight and his brothers with a home that increased in comfort the way most American homes did--bit by bit, appliance by appliance, advance by advance--as new technology became cheaper and more widespread, and more a part of everyday life.        The story of the convenience of modern living is compellingly traced in this delightfully written book illustrated with nearly 200 photographs and vintage illustrations.Front and back illustrations, c. 1892, show a Standard Gas Machine apparatus that was used for supplying one's own home with illuminating gas in the age of gaslight (courtesy of Smithsonian Institution). Inset shows delivery of a 1960s automatic Ice Maker"" refrigerator (courtesy of Whirlpool Corporation).From the Hardcover edition.". Merritt Ierley. 2001
