David Drake [is] the reason a lot of people got started reading military science fiction, because it's always a good idea to start with the best.--David Weber Captain Daniel Leary with his friend–and spy–Officer Adele Mundy are sent to a quiet sector to carry out an easy task: helping the local admiral put down a coup before it takes place. But then the jealous admiral gets rid of them by sending them off on a wild goose chase to a sector where commerce is king and business is carried out by extortion and gunfights. With anarchy and rebellion in the air, a rogue intelligence officer plots the war that will destroy civilization and enlists the help of a brute whom even torturers couldn't stomach. And, of course, it’s up to Leary and Mundy to put a stop to the madness.

"Housman's poetry is considered through close analysis of the workshop material as well as the final texts. Not only the well-known poetry of A Shropshire Lad, Last Poems, More Poems, and Additional Poems is discussed but also Housman's light verse, juvenilia, unfinished fragments, and prose, concentrating on the gay subtext. There is much attention to the techniques of light verse, especially puns, which, when analyzed, often throw an entirely new light on apparently simple pieces. The commentaries of other critics are taken into account, but the author also presents her own explications based on her close reading and wide knowledge of literature."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Danger Road chronicles the incredible true story of three drug dealers who were brutally murdered in 1983 on Danger Road in the Florida Everglades. Lured into a phony drug deal, each victim allegedly found themselves at the business end of a gun wielded by a Miami-Dade police officer. But police and prosecutors say Officer Gilbert Fernandez, Jr. and his crew weren't there to arrest the drug dealers. They were there to execute them and steal their eight kilos of cocaine. The story details the transformation of Fernandez, during the intervening years between the 1983 murders and his triple-murder indictment in 1990. The man once named Miami 's Meanest Cop no longer abused and intimidated detainees; he had become a loving father who lived to convert people to his newfound faith in Christianity. In spite of this radical transformation, Fernandez found himself on trial for his life in 1991. Danger Road is the story of that trial, told by John P. Contini, the Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer who represented him.

Doug, nervous but game, agrees to play detective. But by the end of his first day in Casablanca, Doug knows he's made a mistake. While he meets people eager to help—a retired museum curator, a beautiful and self-absorbed heiress, and her elderly father, a colleague of Russell Pearce—it becomes clear that someone else is looking for the diamond.

Know the animals, respect the planet, love thy neighbor. Rowan Blogg is an Australian veterinarian of the highest distinction and I greatly admire his professionalism, which I observed for years at close range. In Any Kind of Danger he has extended his work into the environment and moral philosophy by tackling the complex issue of how we exploit animals. In the 19th Century William Wilberforce and other pioneers argued that our treatment of animals is a measure of our humanity. Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation (1975) stimulated international interest in the subject. Dr Blogg’s book should do the same. Rowan Blogg examines the role of wildlife on the planet, millions of years before our species became dominant, but how much habitat do we reserve for their natural life? How many species are under threat? The world’s population will stabilise at about nine billion in 2050 – and this raises the fundamental issues of how much land, water and energy we will devote to raising animals for food. Is grazing an efficient or humane way of feeding our species? Industrial farming – out of sight and out of mind – involves inescapable cruelty. Chickens are raised on an A4 size of smaller ‘scratching area’, confined in multi-layered cages. Do animals have a right of access to sunlight and paddock for at least the great part of their lives? How does a cow giving birth cope with a crowded cattle truck? Do we turn our eyes away from the inevitable suffering involved in animal transport, especially life sheep exports? There are profound moral lessons to be learned from observing how we treat animals – and yet the issue will not be on the agenda for the next Federal or State elections. We are in Dr Blogg’s debt for this thoughtful, passionate book. -Barry Jones, AO, FAA, FAHA. FTSE, FASSA Australian Minister for Science 1983-90
