Aakar Books, 2016. First edition. Softcover. New. In this book, the author discusses the changes in material well-being and mental outlook which have taken place throughout the ages up to the break-up of the Roman empire. He gives us a brief survey of what he describes as Palacolithic and Mesolithic savagery, of Neolithic barbarism, of the rise of the Metal Age cultures, and so on until a climax was reached as a result of the Old World unity made possible by the exploits of Alexander the Great. Finally, there is a stimulating chapter with the author`s views about the decline and fall of the ancient world... This more that worth-while book contains many facts the background material for the study, but it is primarily intended to stimulate thought and to help the reader to understand the general story of human development and, maybe, to draw lessons which help when our own civilization, now in danger of collapse, is once again in process of reconstruction.

Clean Tight No Marks In Clean Dj.. Isaac Asimov's 1951-53 Foundation Trilogy Is A Rough-Hewn Classic Of Far Future Sf, Honored With A Unique 1965 Hugo For Best All-Time Series. It Begins With "Psychohistorian" Hari Seldon Mapping The Best Possible Course For Humanity's Next Millennium, After The Fall Of The Doomed Galactic Empire. Late In Life Asimov Revisited The Series And Awkwardly Linked It With His Popular Robot Stories--Introducing Vast Conspiracy Theories To Explain The Empire's Total Lack Of Visible Robots. Asimov's Estate Authorized Three Sf Notables To Fill Out Seldon's Life In The Second Foundation Trilogy, Which David Brin Here Wraps Up After Gregory Benford's Foundation's Fear And Greg Bear's Foundation And Chaos. Chaos Is The New Keyword, Because Chaos Theory Seemingly Makes Nonsense Of Psychohistorical Prediction. Whole Planetary Populations Can Lapse Into Chaotic Rebellion Despite Secret Mind-Controlling Agencies Behind The Scenes. So Seldon Makes His Last Interstellar Journey, Harried, Lectured, And Even Kidnapped By The Warring Factions Of Robots And Not-Quite-Robots That Have Long Manipulated Humanity. The Robots' Dilemma: "We Are Loyal, And Yet Far More Competent Than Our Masters. For Their Own Sake, We Have Kept Them Ignorant, Because We Know Too Well What Destructive Paths They Follow, Whenever They Grow Too Aware. " Brin Does His Best With Asimov's Overcrowded Legacy, Skillfully Steering Seldon To An Insight About The Much-Foretold Future That Satisfies Both The Old Man And The Reader, With A Spark Of Human Free Will And Constructive Chaos Shining Through The Grayness Of Predestination. Asimov Would Have Approved. . Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. 1999., HarperCollins Publishers, 1999, xx, 622 pp. 9 x 6 1/4. Includes maps and black & white illustrations. ""Whether you watch birds on the shores of Long Island, at the Bashakill Marsh, at Niagara Falls, or just at your backyard feeder, this volume will help you appreciate what our Empire State has to offer. It will give you a historical perspective, and it will tell you what we can hope to look forward to in the future if we are vigilant stewards of our natural world."--Governor George E. Pataki. The "bible" of the state's birders since its publication in 1974, John Bull's Birds of New York State has now been completely revised and updated by the Federation of New York State Bird Clubs. This eagerly awaited survey of bird life in the state today provides new and thorough accounts of all 451 species on the official New York State checklist. The book features 7 new maps--4 in full color--and 30 striking sketches by bird artist Dale Dyer. Birders will find chapters covering topics from the prehistoric birds of the region to contemporary bird habitats and the ways in which current classification is being affected by DNA data and research. The species accounts themselves pay particular attention to date parameters and frequency of occurrence, details that are important to the active birder. Where applicable, full subspecies discussions are included. Meticulously prepared by the editor, Emanuel Levine, and the more than 70 members of the Federation who served as authors, this book will prove invaluable to birdwatchers statewide--whether backyard feeder watchers, casual birders, or dyed-in-the-wool enthusiasts."Keywords: BIRDS NEW YORK STATE LOCAL REGIONAL ANIMALS WILDLIFE BIRDING ORNITHOLOGY NATURE BULLS BIRDS NEW YORK STATE First edition.

I cannot describe the sadness which has gripped me. Fall was full of life. He was brilliant, boisterous, a gourmet who loved life, blessed with a beautiful artist wife and three children. God, he could talk and work. He would sit in his basement library office in Washington, writing, thinking and planning his next projects. He would be on the telephone this time to the White House, next time to a young student or to a Communist diplomat, or another time to a wounded army friend he met in Viet-Nam. He was able to see through the farce of ideology; that people were people whatever their pretension, rhetoric or aspiration. He was a great teacher at Howard University, and he taught anyone who cared to see, what the effects of high policy were in the real world. Bernard Fall loved America perhaps as only a Frenchman can love and he intended upon his return from Viet-Nam to become an American citizen even though in his last few years he became increasingly a critic of American foreign policy. It was a criticism which stemmed from an innate disgust at murder and pillage for empire. <br/><br/>04-28-16, Vintage, 1967, Chiltonpub. Very Good. 1974. 1st Ed.

Between that time and 1990, the Cold War was waged primarily through arms reduction treaties, ongoing propaganda and defense spending. In the end, the efforts of the western democracies, and in particular the United States, led to the fracturing of the European communist block. The Soviet Union ceased to exist and communist regimes in Eastern European nations crumbled. The end of the decades-long confrontation that marked the post World War Two era is presented in the fourth and final volume of "The Cold War" series. Christine Hatt details the time period within which the Cold War came to its conclusion. Particular emphasis is placed upon the roles American presidents and Soviet leaders played in the process of bringing the Cold War to an end. Additionally, Ms. Hatt offers some closing thoughts regarding the political future of our world as we move into an age when the potentially disastrous but predictable power bases of the Cold War years no longer exist. Perhaps the most telling message of this informative, illustrated book is the fact that while the threat of global nuclear war is no longer a pressing one, variables such as racism, ethnocentrism, nationalism and terrorism have now come more fully to the forefront. 2002, World Almanac Library, $29.27. Ages 10 to 14. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck School Library Journal Gr 5-8-Causes covers the Cold War's ideological roots in the opposing economic systems of the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., the decline in relations between the two countries at the end of World War II, the Truman Doctrine, the Korean War, and the slight easing of tensions following Stalin's death. End discusses the close of the conflict, covering the rise and fall of d tente; the revival of animosities during the late 1970s and early 1980s; the "proxy" conflicts in Afghanistan, Africa, and Central America; Gorbachev's attempted reforms; and the collapse of the Soviet empire. Each book has numerous sidebars about events, organizations, and people, and captioned color and black-and-white photos appear on almost every page. Both authors are largely objective, emphasizing the mutual distrust, fear, and missed opportunities that characterized the era. While these books mention many events and provide some analysis, they are too brief to include the background material and in-depth coverage that would really help students understand this lengthy and often complex conflict. Major events often receive only a paragraph or two, and much of End reads like an annotated time line. Most libraries will be better served with the more comprehensive coverage found in James A. Warren's Cold War: The American Crusade Against World Communism 1945-1991 (Lothrop, 1996) and Earle Rice, Jr.'s outstanding The Cold War: Collapse of Communism (Lucent, 2000), which describes and analyzes the factors that led to the collapse of the Soviet empire.-Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. Annotation Explores why the Cold War ended, including such reasons as the changing relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union, economic problems, and the increase in nuclear weaponry worldwide.

Gordon Childe is one of the foremost He has travelled widely and has done much great importance to the specialist; he has, as it personally added many bricks to the edifice of pre- knowledge. But he has also long realized that prehistory and early history form a continuum, and that, by standing back and contemplating the whole, many conclusions can be arrived at with regard to the rise and fall Of civilizations. For this reason a special welcome must be accorded to Professor Childe's fascinating little book now under review. In it he discusses the changes in material well-being and mental outlook which have taken place throughout the ages up to the break-up of the Roman Empire. He gives us a brief survey of what he describes as Palaeolithic and Mesolithic savagery, of Neolithic barbarism, of the rise of the Metal Age cultures, and so on until a climax was reached as a result of the Old World unity made possible by the exploits of Alexander the Great. Finally, there is a stimulating chapter with the author's views about the decline and fall of the ancient world. This more than worth-while book contains many facts the background material for the study; but it is primarily intended to stimulate thought and to help the reader to understand the general story of human development and, maybe, to draw lessons which will help when our own civilization, now in danger of collapse, is once again in process of reconstruction.’ - M.

That's the question that military SF ace Flint (1633) and two-time Nebula Award finalist Wentworth (This Fair Land) ask in this thought-provoking far-future novel. After defeating the human species, some of the sea lion-like Jao consider finishing off the job through mass asteroid strikes. But the young Aille, newly arrived commander of Jao Ground Forces, seeks to win over the humans not only by showing them the threat posed to all intelligent life by the Ekhat, the elder race that raised the Jao to sentience, but also by trying to forge bonds between the vanquishers and the vanquished. The authors excel at describing how human and Jao customs clash, allowing the reader to discover along with the characters the core beliefs of each society and how these beliefs could be adjusted and harmonized with one another. The Ekhat presents a truly alien threat of the sort that could well merge two belligerent societies into one, not just out of fear but through ties of blood and honor. Building to an exhilarating conclusion, this book cries out for a sequel. Copyright 2003 Reed. From Booklist Flint and Wentworth drastically modify a venerable sf setup--alien occupiers of a conquered Earth can't understand what makes humans tick--much to the benefit of the book and the greater delight of readers. For one thing, on this Earth, insight and idiocy are equally distributed between the conquerors and conquered, with the invading Jao frequently realizing how much they have to learn and then setting out to learn it. Meanwhile, the humans are playing the same game, with those humans who are hostages to the Jao, or part of the Jao's sepoy army, preparing for war against a still more evil alien race, probably doing more good than the fragmented Resistance accomplishes. If the elaborate detail with which both sides are depicted sometimes slows the pacing, it redounds to Flint and Wentworth's world-building skills. And when Jao clans fall at odds on Earth, on a scale that threatens wholesale devastation, the pacing brisks up enough for anyone's taste. A possible series opener that stands well alone.
