    Synopsis
    Captain Jason Burke is a man apart, and not just because he's the only of his kind for thousands of light-years in any direction. The changes to his body and to his genetic code have made him faster, stronger, more able to survive in his dangerous occupation...but they've also ensured that he'll never truly fit in with others of his species. He always assumed he would live and die with his crew and never lay eyes on another human again. He was wrong. The mercenary captain learns through back-channel information that Earth may be in danger and, worse, that he may have been a contributing factor. He now faces the choice of ignoring the problem and allowing his own species to fight their own battles or returning to help and risk making the situation worse. Can he just sit idly by while his species faces such a dire threat?

    Synopsis
    Every doctor is haunted by memories of difficult patients. People whom, despite all of their patience and persistence and the best communication, diagnostic and reasoning skills, they haven't helped. And anyone who has been a patient will tell you about encounters with difficult doctors, of relationships freighted with mutual bafflement, hostility and pain. Despite its vast resources, medicine is so often destined to fail people. Written by a practising GP, this book is told through stories of Dr Peter Dorward's hardest cases, including his worst failures (and a few triumphs) and ranging from the everyday to the tragic, grotesque and humorous. With these stories Peter Dorward explores the philosophical problems and contradictions entangled in the practice of medicine.

    Synopsis
    A different kind of evangelism book. Just as the author’s book, God’s Not Dead, laid out the logical reasoning for God’s existence, and Man Myth Messiah established the existence and identity of Jesus Christ, now Rice Broocks brings a definitive book on the logical necessity to make the proclamation of the Gospel our highest priority. In fact, it is actually the ultimate justice issue and therefore the most important of all human rights. Consciously or subconsciously, many now believe that demonstrating tolerance is more important than truth. Fundamentally, the right to know the truth is even greater than the freedom to believe.Because Jesus Christ is the Truth, then humanity shouldn’t be denied the right to hear about Him, make their own decision, and then have the freedom to tell others. This unique book is written to achieve the following goals: To recast the Gospel as a human rights issue… To reset the Gospel as our top priority… To explain why truth exists in the first place… To defend the truth of the Bible… To explain why God’s design and purpose makes gender issues absurd… To show that immorality is wrong regardless of the law of man… What is truth? Does God really exist? Is the Bible true? All of this will be examined more closely in this book. Jesus claimed He was the Truth, not just spoke the truth. Therefore, if Christ is the truth, and all deserve to know what is true, then the most basic right of all is to know Jesus Christ and make Him known.

    Synopsis
    From the controversial incarceration of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, to the brutal ethnic cleansing being practiced in Darfur, to the widespread denial of equal rights to women in many areas of the world, human rights violations are a constant presence in the news and in our lives.

Looking at the philosophical justification for rights, the historical origins of human rights and how they are formed in law, Andrew Clapham explains what our human rights actually are, what they might be, and where the human rights movement is heading.

    Robert Bly

    Synopsis
    Robert Bly – one of the most compelling mythologists and storytellers of our time – captures the imagination in two live recordings. In “The Human Shadow,” Bly takes us on a thought provoking and entertaining journey exploring our “shadow” through poetry, music, and storytelling. Bly says that the development of the shadow starts in childhood when parents make it clear there are certain parts of us they don’t like: “you’re too noisy!” So we put this into a “bag”. Over time, our independence and feeling also go into the bag, getting heavier and heavier. Then, according to Bly, we spend the rest of our life trying to get everything back out of the bag to live fully again. “What Stories Do We Need” reminds us that the mythology we have inherited is often defective. Just as the church refused to accept the reality Galileo saw in his telescope, literalists have removed the dark soul images that nourished our ancestors from mythology by refusing to include them in our stories. But Bly reminds us that these are exactly the stories we need to hear.

    Synopsis
    After living in the White House for four years, in November 1980, Jimmy Carter lost the presidential election to Republican Ronald Reagan in a landslide. Carter's unpopularity helped Republicans win seats in the House and gain control over the Senate for the first time in over 20 years. The Reagan Era had begun, ushering in a generation of conservative power. Democrats blamed Carter for this catastrophe and spent the next decade pretending he had never existed. Republicans cheered his demise and trotted out his name to scare voters for years to come. Carter and his wife Rosalynn returned to their farm in the small town of Plains, Georgia. They were humiliated, widely unpopular, and even in financial debt. Thirty-five years later, Carter has become the most celebrated post-president in American history. He has won the Nobel Peace Prize, written best-selling books, and become lauded across the world for his efforts on behalf of peace and social justice. Ex-presidents now adopt the Carter model of leveraging their eminent status to benefit humanity. By pursuing diplomatic missions, leading missions to end poverty, and working to eradicate disease around the world, Carter has transformed the idea of what a president can accomplish after leaving the White House. This is the story of how Jimmy Carter lost the biggest political prize on earth - but managed to win back something much greater.

    Synopsis
    From the New York Times bestselling author of The Year We Left Home, a dazzling new novel already being hailed as an “instantly addictive…tale of yearning, paradox, and hope.” (Booklist)After surviving a shooting at her high school, Linnea is packed off to live with her estranged father, Art, who doesn’t quite understand how he has suddenly become responsible for raising a sullen adolescent girl. Art’s neighbor, Christie, is a nurse distracted by an eccentric patient, Mrs. Foster, who has given Christie the reins to her Humanity Project, a bizarre and well-endowed charity fund. Just as mysteriously, no one seems to know where Conner, the Fosters’ handyman, goes after work, but he has become the one person Linnea can confide in, perhaps because his own home life is a war zone: his father has suffered an injury and become addicted to painkillers. As these characters and many more hurtle toward their fates, the Humanity Project is born: Can you indeed pay someone to be good? At what price?Thompson proves herself at the height of her powers in The Humanity Project, crafting emotionally suspenseful and thoroughly entertaining characters, in which we inevitably see ourselves. Set against the backdrop of current events and cultural calamity, it is at once a multifaceted ensemble drama and a deftly observant story of our twenty-first-century society.

The chapter at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial should be required reading for anyone who wishes to sit in the Oval Office.” — Jack McDevitt on Humans “The most unusual love story you’ve ever read.” — Rocky Mountain News on Humans “The biggest job of science fiction is to portray the Other. To help us imagine the strange and see the familiar in eerie new ways. Nobody explores this territory more boldly than Robert J. Sawyer.” — David Brin on Humans “Hominids is anthropological fiction at its best.” — W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O’Neal Gear, USA Today bestselling authors of People of the Thunder “Hominids belongs on the same shelf as Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land.” — Starlog

    Synopsis
    The thrilling story of the charismatic explorer who Simon Bolivar called 'the true discoverer of South America' and the daring expedition that altered the course of science. From 1799 to 1804 German naturalist and adventurer Alexander von Humboldt conducted the first extensive scientific exploration of Latin America. At the completion of his arduous 6,000-mile journey, he was feted by Thomas Jefferson and presented to Napoleon, and, with the subsequent publication of his findings, he would be hailed as the greatest scientific genius of his age. Humboldt's Cosmos tells the story of this extraordinary man who was equal parts Einstein and Livingstone, and of the adventure that defined his life. Gerard Helferich vividly recounts Humboldt's expedition through the Amazon and over the Andes, highlighting his paradigm-changing discoveries along the way. During the course of the expedition, Humboldt cataloged more than 60,000 plants, set an altitude record climbing the volcano Chimborazo, and became the first to study the great cultures of the Aztecs and Incas. In the process, he revolutionized geology and laid the groundwork for modern sciences such as climatology, oceanography, and geography and his contributions would influence future greats such as Charles Darwin and shape the course of science for centuries to come.,p>Published in time for the bicentennial of the expeditions completion in May 1804, Humboldt's Cosmos is a dramatic tribute to one of history's most audacious adventurers, whom Stephen Jay Gould noted 'may well have been the world's most famous and influential intellectual.'
