1493: UNCOVERING THE NEW WORLD COLUMBUS CREATED (P)

product image
$16.95
$12.75
$12.75 - $16.95

A deeply engaging new history of how European settlements in the post-Colombian Americas shaped the world, from the bestselling author of 1491.

Presenting the latest research by biologists, anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians, Mann shows how the post-Columbian network of ecological and economic exchange fostered the rise of Europe, devastated imperial China, convulsed Africa, and for two centuries made Mexico City--where Asia, Europe, and the new frontier of the Americas dynamically interacted--the center of the world. In this history, Mann uncovers the germ of today's fiercest political disputes, from immigration to trade policy to culture wars. In 1493, Mann has again given readers an eye-opening scientific interpretation of our past, unequaled in its authority and fascination.

17 INDISPUTABLE LAWS OF TEAMWORK (P)

product image
$17.99
New/Used: New

Building and maintaining a successful team is no simple task. Even people who have taken their teams to the highest level in their field have difficulty recreating what accounted for their successes. Is it a strong work ethic? Is it "chemistry"? What tools can you wrap your hands around to build?or rebuild?your team?

In The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork, leadership expert and New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell shares the vital principles of team building that are necessary for success in your business, family, church, or organization.

In his practical, down-to-earth style, Dr. Maxwell shows how:

  • The Law of High Morale inspired a 50-year-old man who couldn't even swim to train for the toughest triathlon in the world.
  • The Law of the Big Picture prompted a former U.S. president to travel across the country by bus, sleep in a basement, and do manual labor.
  • Playing by The Law of the Scoreboard enabled one web-based company to keep growing and make money while thousands of other Internet businesses failed.
  • Ignoring The Law of the Price Tag caused one of the world's largest retailers to close its doors after 128 years in business.
  • The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork will empower you?whether coach or player, teacher or student, CEO or non-profit vollunteer?with the "how-tos" and attitudes for building a successful team.

    1968 PROJECT

    $24.95

    The social and political forces that swirled through the turbulent 1960s crested in 1968. That year saw the peak of the Vietnam War, the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, riots at the Democratic National Convention, assertions of Black power at the Olympic Games, and feminist demonstrations at the Miss America Pageant. Hair opened on Broadway, Laugh-In debuted on TV, and Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey polarized critics. President Lyndon Johnson was voted out of office, and his successor, Richard Nixon, promised in his nomination acceptance speech that "the long, dark night for America is about to end." In the closing days of the year, we saw earth in its entirety for the first time from the window of the Apollo 8 space capsule.

    The 1968 Project is the accompanying book to the 1968 exhibit, a major traveling exhibition developed by the Minnesota Historical Society in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum, and the Oakland Museum of California. This companion book integrates personal experiences within the national context of the year, organized month by month, through photography, eyewitness accounts, artifacts, and illuminating commentary by one of the Twin Cities' top social and cultural writers, Brad Zellar.

    Brad Zellar is an award-winning journalist, writer, and editor and author of Suburban World: The Norling Photographs.

    $12.75 - $16.95
    ABC of Architecture James F. O'Gorman. Drawings by Dennis E. McGrath "May be the best-written work on the subject."--New York Times "Thank goodness for James F. O'Gorman, who has given us this refreshingly clear guide to the indispensable convergence of art and science we call architecture."--Forbes "[O'Gorman's] mastery of the subject shows in his straightforward, lucid prose."--Publishers Weekly "James O'Gorman's ABC of Architecture takes its rightful place among the few paragons this century of clear and direct introductions to the field."--Robert Venturi ABC of Architecture is an accessible, nontechnical introduction to architectural structure, history, and criticism. Author James F. O'Gormon moves seamlessly from a discussion of the most basic inspiration for architecture (the need for shelter from the elements), to an exploration of space, system, and material, and, finally, to an examination of the language and history of architecture. He shows the nonspecialist how to read a design in plans, sections, and elevations, and how architects, like other artists, make creative use of space and light. James F. O'Gorman is Grace Slack McNeil Professor of the History of American Art at Wellesley College and author of more than a dozen books on architecture and art history, including Connecticut Valley Vernacular: The Vanishing Landscape and Architecture of the New England Tobacco Fields, also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press. 1997 144 pages 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 53 illus.

    $19.50
    $19.50 - $26.00
    In the wake of the economic disasters of the past decade, perhaps we could all use a refresher course in economics to help us understand. The ABCs of Political Economy provides a lively and accessible introduction to modern political economy. In this compelling book, informed by the work of such eminent economic philosophers as Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, Michal Kalecki, Joan Robinson, and Hyman Minksy, Robin Hahnel provides the essential tools to comprehend today's economic crises.
    Hahnel explains the origins of the financial crisis of 2008, the ensuing "Great Recession," and why government policies in Europe and North America over the past six years have failed to improve matters for the majority of their citizens. It also helps explain the economic causes of climate change and what will be required if it is to be resolved effectively and fairly. The ABCs of Political Economy is perfect for anyone who wants to equip themselves with the ability to grasp as well as challenge existing preconceptions of political economy.

    ABSOLUTE DESTRUCTION

    $27.95
    $21.00
    $21.00 - $27.95

    In a book that is at once a major contribution to modern European history and a cautionary tale for today, Isabel V. Hull argues that the routines and practices of the Imperial German Army, unchecked by effective civilian institutions, increasingly sought the absolute destruction of its enemies as the only guarantee of the nation's security. So deeply embedded were the assumptions and procedures of this distinctively German military culture that the Army, in its drive to annihilate the enemy military, did not shrink from the utter destruction of civilian property and lives. Carried to its extreme, the logic of "military necessity" found real security only in extremities of destruction, in the "silence of the graveyard."

    Hull begins with a dramatic account, based on fresh archival work, of the German Army's slide from administrative murder to genocide in German Southwest Africa (1904-7). The author then moves back to 1870 and the war that inaugurated the Imperial era in German history, and analyzes the genesis and nature of this specifically German military culture and its operations in colonial warfare. In the First World War the routines perfected in the colonies were visited upon European populations. Hull focuses on one set of cases (Belgium and northern France) in which the transition to total destruction was checked (if barely) and on another (Armenia) in which "military necessity" caused Germany to accept its ally's genocidal policies even after these became militarily counterproductive. She then turns to the Endkampf (1918), the German General Staff's plan to achieve victory in the Great War even if the homeland were destroyed in the process--a seemingly insane campaign that completes the logic of this deeply institutionalized set of military routines and practices. Hull concludes by speculating on the role of this distinctive military culture in National Socialism's military and racial policies.

    Absolute Destruction has serious implications for the nature of warmaking in any modern power. At its heart is a warning about the blindness of bureaucratic routines, especially when those bureaucracies command the instruments of mass death.
