Brush With Reality: Poems and Drawings
Publisher: College Ave Pr

BRUSH WITH REALITY is a collection of poems and drawings about ordinary wonders and extraordinary routines. The delights of daily living are celebrated. The doubts of the faithful honored. The fearful hopes that make our world go round affirmed. Between the lines of words and pictures, hopeful fears are acknowledged, black and white sometimes relieved in color.

The delightfully creative book is printed on premium, art-coated paper, with more than 100 original drawings, including a special eight-page "Color Gallery."

The poems in this wide-ranging collection were written (and rewritten) between 1962 and 2002. They arose from the poet's concerns with prevailing currents in America during those years: rural and urban sprawling toward suburbia; the inclusion of TV as neighbor as well as icon; the image as advertised, graven or not. References to theater, art, the Middle Ages and the Bible are the common ground -- the public space -- for personal events: growing up, and old; going to school, to war, to work. The drawings and paintings illustrate the challenge to perspective of these juxtapositions.

The Fire Kimono: A Novel (Sano Ichiro Novels)
Publisher: Minotaur Books

Japan, March 1700. Near a Shinto shrine in the hills, a windstorm knocks down a tree to uncover a human skeleton, long buried and forgotten. Meanwhile, in the nearby city of Edo, troops ambush and attack Lady Reiko, the wife of Sano Ichiro, the samurai detective who has risen to power and influence in the shogun’s court. The troops who attacked Reiko appear to belong to Sano’s fiercest enemy, Lord Matsudaira, who denies all responsibility. But if the rivals are not to blame for each other’s misfortune, who is?

Just as Sano’s strife with Matsudaira begins to escalate to the brink of war, the shogun orders Sano to investigate the origins of the mysterious skeleton, buried with swords that identify it as belonging to the shogun’s cousin, who disappeared forty years earlier on the night that a cursed kimono touched off a fire that nearly destroyed the city.

Suddenly, Sano and Reiko are forced to confront dangerous, long-buried secrets that expose Sano’s own mother as the possible culprit. The shogun gives Sano and Reiko just three days to clear her name—or risk losing not only their position at court but their families’ lives.

Standardwerk der NS-Forschung: Die Schutzstaffel Heinrich Himmlers entfaltete während des Dritten Reiches höchste Aktivität, und das nicht nur als Agent totalitärer Machtvollstreckung. Kater zeigt, dass die SS den ernsthaften Versuch einer Infiltration des deutschen Kultur- und Geisteslebens unternommen hat, aus Motiven, die nicht zuletzt in der bizarren Persönlichkeit Himmlers selbst begründet liegen. Himmlers SS-Forschungsamt "Ahnenerbe" entwickelte sich, über den Umweg anfangs noch harmlos anmutender geisteswissenschaftlicher Projekte, zu einem der gefährlichsten Instrumente nationalsozialistischer Kulturpolitik. Dennoch vermochte sich das "Ahnenerbe" nie zur obersten Kulturbehörde des Dritten Reiches, nicht einmal der SS, auszuwachsen. In einem Prozess der institutionellen Selbstvernichtung, der sich innerhalb der Schutzstaffel vollzog, wurde es sogar fast zerrieben. Der Verfasser charakterisiert die SS nicht als monolithisches Gebilde, sondern als "Spielfeld parasitärer Kräfte, die im Neben- und Gegeneinander wirkten". Er reiht sich damit in die Gruppe jener Historiker ein, die den Führer-Staat Hitlers als Ausdruck eines auf allen Ebenen wuchernden Machtpluralismus interpretieren und nicht als eine zielbewusst gelenkte, allzeit geschlossene Monokratie.

Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management
Publisher: Taylor & Francis

Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management is a unique text, which links these three crucial areas of tourism - impacts, planning and management.

Tourism impacts are multi-faceted and therefore are difficult to plan for and manage. Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management looks at all the key players involved – be they tourists, host communities or industry members – and considers a number of approaches and techniques for managing tourism successfully.

Now in a second edition, this bestselling text has been fully revised with updated statistics and case studies, including the Bali bombings, Stonehenge and tour guiding, plus all-new material on the planning process in developed countries, community action planning in Canada, the role of zoos, pro-poor tourism in Southern Africa, government planning in Dubai, lodge development in Thailand and the use of IT in planning in Sri Lanka.

Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management is invaluable for tourism undergraduates and is suitable as introductory material for postgraduate tourism management courses, as well as being a useful tool for those studying related courses.
