Alien Encounters: Firsthand Accounts of UFO Abductions
UK Virgin Books
1994 0863697275 / 9780863697272 First Edition Softcover Very Good Condition 17.5 x 10.9 x 2.8 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: Based on in-depth interviews with 60 people and more than 300 independently corroborated accounts, this book presents the most complete and accurate portrait of alien abductions ever compiled. Using hypnosis to overcome the amnesia suffered by often severely traumatized subjects, the author recreates the deeply disturbing experiences of abduction, which include physical examination, gynaecological procedures, enforced sexual intercourse and contact with strange hybrid babies. Supremely rational, Professor Jacobs has set a new standard in UFO research which challenges us to consider the-occurrence of alien abductions with the same seriousness and objectivity afforded to other highly significant scientific claims.

Amsterdam (Rough Guide Travel Guides), Dunford, Martin

Amsterdam (Rough Guide Travel Guides)
UK Rough Guides
2003 1858288983 / 9781858288987 First Edition Softcover Very Good Condition 13 x 1.7 x 19.7 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: This guide features a full listing of Amsterdam's bars, brown cafes, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as accommodation to suit any traveller. There are accounts giving insight into well-known sights such as Anne Frank's house and lesser-known attractions, from Indonesian restaurants to Art-Deco hotels. There are critical listings on the best places to stay, from hostels, to houseboats to upmarket hotels. The final section of the guide includes articles on Amsterdam's history, arts and literature. : About the Author: Martin Dunford and Jack Holland have co-authored several Rough Guide titles and were part of the original group who founded Rough Guides in the early 1980's. Phil Lee has worked as a freelance author for Rough Guides for the last fifteen years. His other titles include Norway, Brussels, Canada and Toronto. : Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: WHERE TO GO: Confined by the circuitous sweep of the Singelgracht canal, Amsterdam's compact centre contains most of the city's leading attractions and only takes about forty minutes to stroll from one end to the other. Centraal Station, where you're likely to arrive, lies on the centre's northern edge, its back to the River IJ, and from the station the city fans south in a web of concentric canals, surrounded by expanding suburbs. : Butting up to the River IJ, the Old Centre spreads south from Centraal Station bisected by Damrak and its continuation, Rokin, long the city's main drag; en route is the Dam, the main square. The Old Centre remains Amsterdam's commercial heart, with the best of its bustling street life. It also holds myriad shops, bars and restaurants, includes the Red Light District, just to the east of Damrak, and contains dozens of fine old buildings, most memorably the Oude Kerk, the Amstelkring and the Koninklijk Paleis. The Old Centre is bordered by the first of the major canals, the Singel, which is followed closely by the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht - collectively known as the Grachtengordel, or "Girdle of Canals". These canals were part of a major seventeenth-century urban extension and, with the interconnecting radial streets, form the city's distinctive web shape. This is Amsterdam's most delightful area and the one you see on all the brochures - handsome seventeenth- and eighteenth-century canal houses, with their distinctive gables, overlooking narrow, dreamy canals: a familiar image perhaps, but one that is still entirely authentic. It's here you'll also find the city's most celebrated attraction, the Anne Frankhuis, a poignant reminder of the Holocaust. : Immediately to the west of the Grachtengordel lies the Jordaan, one-time industrial slum and the traditional heart of working-class Amsterdam, though in recent years the district has experienced a measure of gentrification. The same applies to the adjacent Westerdok, though the origins of this district are very different. The artificial islands of the Westerdok were dredged out of the river to create extra wharves and shipbuilding space during the city's Golden Age and only in the last few decades has the shipping industry moved out. On the other side of the centre is the Old Jewish Quarter, which was once home to a thriving Jewish community until the German occupation of World War II. Post-war development has laid a heavy hand on the quarter, but nonetheless there are a couple of poignant survivors, principally the Portuguese synagogue and the Jewish Historical Museum. The adjacent Plantagebuurt is greener and more suburban, but it does possess one excellent museum, the Verzetsmuseum (Resistance Museum) - as does the neighbouring Oosterdok, another area of former dockland that is undergoing a rapid process of renewal and revival. : Amsterdam's Museum Quarter contains, as you might expect, the city's premier art museums, principally the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. Each has a superb collection and both lie just a stone's throw from the city's finest park, the Vondelpark. Finally, the residential suburbs - or Outer Districts - spreading beyond Singelgracht are relatively short of attractions, one notable exception being the wooded parkland of the Amsterdamse Bos. : Talk to Amsterdammers about visiting other parts of their country and you may well be met with looks of amazement: ignore them. The Dutch have an outstanding public transport system, an integrated network of trains and buses that puts the city within easy grasp of a large and varied slice of the country. Consequently, the choice of possible day-trips is extensive: the towns of Haarlem and Alkmaar, the old Zuider Zee ports of Marken and Volendam, and two villages, pretty Edam and the recreated seventeenth-century Dutch hamlet of De Zaanse Schans, are all worth a visit. : WHEN TO GO: Amsterdam enjoys a fairly standard temperate climate, with warm, if characteristically mild, summers, and moderately cold and wet winters. The climate is certainly not severe enough to make very much difference to the city's routines, which makes the city an ideal all-year destination. That said, high summer - roughly late June to August - sees the city's parks packed to the gunnels and parts of the centre almost overwhelmed by the tourist throng, whereas spring and autumn are not too crowded and can be especially beautiful, with mist hanging over the canals and low sunlight beaming through the cloud cover. In the summer mosquitoes can be bothersome, and at any time of the year, but particularly in summer, try to book your accommodation ahead of time. Size: 13 x 1.7 x 19.7 cm. 304 pages.

In both general aviation and airline transport, there is evidence of an emergent awareness of the importance of instruction in training.

The text shows how professionals in the aviation industry and academic researchers complement each other in their pursuit of more effective and efficient flight training and instruction. The material is presented in closely co-ordinated structure of four main sections: aptitude testing, selection and licensing; approaches to pilot training; ab initio pilot training and instruction; in-service pilot training. It is dedicated to to aviation instruction and training, and aims to give a balance of practitioner/industry viewpoint and academic/researcher input and it shows contemporary practice and theory.

Available Now. Missing Dustcover. Book Description: In the early 1990s, borders within Europe and between the United States and Mexico began to open. The increasing flow of goods, capital, ideas and people across boundaries promised to reduce physical and cognitive distances. Simultaneously, challenges to identity have arisen within and between the European nation-states, driven not only by internal cultural and political dynamics, but also by processes of globalization. Concurrently, the US-Mexican border emerged in public consciousness as a location of new opportunities, largely due to public perception of the benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). This book explores some of the contradictory, yet simultaneous, processes affecting border regions. A team of leading scientists offers a wide range of perspectives on global, national, regional and local processes, and provides a useful matrix for understanding their complex, multilayered implications. Key concepts such as globalization, borders and identities are illustrated through local and regional case studies. : Review: 'Borderlands are not new phenomena. With globalization, however, their significance as laboratories of transnational societal development has rapidly increased. Written by experienced borderlands scholars from North America and Europe, this book wonderfully pieces together a complex mosaic of economic, political and socio-cultural change on and around the boundaries of the nation-state.' Dr James Wesley Scott, Free University of Berlin, Germany 'Challenged Borderlands is required reading for borderlands scholars and students of international affairs. Remaking boundarylines and reconceptualizing borderlands are defining characteristics of contemporary culture and politics. The book correctly identifies supranational influences from above; and the several analyses are especially relevant as they focus upon regional and local forces from below.' Professor Edward J.

You may play Golf of sorts, but it will not be a good game.' 'Don't make Golf your sole topic of conversation. There are a few otherwise quite intelligent persons who are non-golfers. You will never make converts if you bore non-players to distraction by for ever talking of the Royal and Ancient Game.' 'Don't blame your clubs for faults of your own that may be easily corrected if you analyze your methods of using the implements.' 'Don't keep up a running fire of conversation during the round. Golf is a game in which thought is necessary and silence is preferable to chatter.' 'Don't irritate your opponent by wearing jazzy colours. To dazzle his eyes with a multi-coloured pull-over or peace-disturbing golf stockings is to take a mean advantage.' : Review: Don'ts for Golfers is another humerous facsimile volume brought to you by A&C Black, following the success of Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives.

Available Now. Book Description: A collection of journalism from a topical and entertaining author.: A cornucopia of a book, Godless in Eden brings together a selection of lectures and essays contributed to newspapers, magazines and books over recent years, revised for this volume, and all highly relevent to today. From the changing face of government, the feminisation of politics, life in Tony Blair's godless and un-idealogical New Garden of Eden, to whence and whither Feminism via the new cult of Therapism, to our turbulent and benighted royals by way of Roseanne and Jamie Lee Curtis.: A final treat in the final section, Growing Up and Moving On, some wonderfully incisive autobiographical snippets of Weldonian life and times. : Amazon Review: "Since the unemployed appear to be burnt offerings to the stability of our economy," writes Fay Weldon, at the beginning of "The Way We Live Now", "...I think they should be treated with vast respect and allowed to live in peace, dignity and the utmost comfort." The opening salvo sounds the tone of Weldon's Godless in Eden, a collection which establishes her range, and skill, as an essayist. At once engaging and infuriating, political and comic, intimate and public, Weldon's writing bulges with ideas and opinions--from the trials of New Labour to the blindspots of an old dream of feminism, from progress (or demise) of the House of Windsor to the "Age of Therapism" (a veritable hobbyhorse for Weldon). : As a feminist prepared to criticise feminism ("Pity the Poor Men"), Weldon confronts her readers with some of the issues that, for women, refuse to go away, offering a timely reminder to politicians and cultural critics alike. "Feminism has been used as a cloak," she suggests, "under shelter of which women have been driven out into the workforce, and their children turned over into the nightmare called childcare." It's the kind of insight into the everyday difficulty of living, and working, that enlivens Weldon's book--and serves to counterbalance the weight of prejudice she can bring to bear elsewhere. On psychotherapy, for example: psychotherapists, Weldon insists, are "failed novelists: they had taken to psychotherapy in order to write living novels in the minds of the helpless and unhappy." Deeply suspicious of philanthropy and falsely good behaviour ("The road to social hell is paved with an excess of empathy"), Weldon's sense of irony sees her through in this ultimately comfortable sketch of the life and times of a she-devil. --Vicky Lebeau -- : Review: 'Comic brilliance.': Daily Telegraph: 'A master storyteller.

This volume provides a critical overview of contemporary academic and political perspectives and then compares these views from the ""non-hungry"" people with those of the ""hungry"", particularly from a broad range of poor communities in India. Their views are gathered using participatory rural appraisal techniques and the scale of the material presented is unprecedented. Not surprisingly, the comparisons show that the perceptions of the hungry are fundamentally different from those of the non-hungry. It makes suggestions about how best policy makers can attempt to eliminate hunger based on what the hungry themselves suggest. The book also draws attention to the critical role of Common Property Resources and women in the fight against under-nutrition." Size: 2.5 x 15.9 x 22.2 cm. 492 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

1991 1856288323 / 9781856288323 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition 1.3 x 16.5 x 24.8 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: The nascent science of Hydroinformatics comprises the application of information technology to the understanding and control of the waters of the world, the very arteries and viens of the biosphere. This book explains how information technology is already being used to realise a new solicitude towards nature and it provides a philosophical framework for these new ideas. It signposts further developments in this directions, and is illustrated by carefully chosen examples taken from current hydraulic engineering projects. The approach taken can perhaps best be described as "post modern" in that it insists that every effort has to be made to draw upon the knowledge and experience of the past in present-day planning for the future. Accordingly, this work not only draws on modern scientific achievements, such as those of numerical simulation, data modelling and artifical intelligence, but it also draws upon a long philosophical and theological tradition. The author shows how, without this background, advances in hydraulic engineering and indeed technology as a whole, will only accelerate the approach of environmental cataclysm rather than prevent it. The readership includes those who are genuinely concerned about the natural environment; engineers and applied scientists working in or for the water industry, water boards and river authorities; legislators on water affairs and those involved in water related litigation.

In addition, the authors offer guidelines for the development of a basic reference collection that is stable enough, and eclectic enough, to support the high school curriculum. Chapter one provides practical suggestions for planning with teachers to ensure that students are given many opportunities to learn how to access and use information as an integral part of their coursework and in their personal and career development. Chapter two presents guidelines for selection of an effective print reference collection, recommends essential reference sources for a comprehensive high school, and discusses selection policies for instructional materials. Chapter three discusses selection of a library automation system to meet staff and student needs and the systems available from specific vendors. Chapter four discusses the use of CD-ROM technology, online services, and the Internet, and offers guidelines for selecting valuable electronic resources and services for the media center.

Available Now. Book Description: Ever since Paul Theroux embarked in London on the first train of his Great Railway Bazaar, railways have been a rich source for the best travel writing. : This is truer than ever in the twenty-first century. As the environmental implications of relentless air travel cast an ominous shadow over the prospect of foreign adventure, the opportunity to jump on a train at St Pancras and be whisked straight to the continent offers a wonderful alternative. Train travel has assumed a new pragmatic importance as well as romance - which is no doubt why so many more tour companies are offering a great train ride as part of their holiday itineraries.: Now, Michael Kerr, the Telegraph's deputy Travel Editor, has burrowed deep in the newspaper's archives and collected together the very best of its writings about the railway: here are journeys non-stop from London to Vladivostok; across the Canadian Rockies; the first train to traverse Australia from Darwin to Alice Springs; and on the teeming, crawling, travelling adventure of Indian railways. In scenes much more familiar to the British commuter, Boris Johnson discovers his "inner McEnroe" thanks to signal failure in the Midlands, and Michael Palin samples the delights of British Rail Inter-City.: This is an anthology that will appeal to the railway buff and the armchair traveller alike; to anyone who has ever Inter-railed in their youth and everyone nostalgic for the days when the only way to cross a continent was by train. : Review: 'It's hard to imagine a better anthology of this much-loved travel genre' (Sunday Telegraph): 'Endlessly enjoyable anthology of articles...sit back, slow down and relish' ***** (Wanderlust): 'These tales of great journeys of the world make entertaining reading' (Good Book Guide) : About the Author: Michael Kerr is deputy travel editor of the Daily Telegraph.

"Book Description: This text presents a discussion and an evaluation of Leibniz's contribution to the discussion of the problem of freedom and determinism with special reference to earlier contributions by both Aquinas and Molina. Leibniz clearly states that his solution is a synthesis of Aquinas' and Molina's views and yet Leibniz scholars often merely make a passing comment to Leibniz's views in relation to these two philosophers. This text aims to expose and discuss the specific details of these philosophers from whom Liebniz claims to have borrowed a few ideas. The text draws the conclusion that although Leibniz's solutions of the problem of freedom and determinism is incompatible with some aspects of his metaphysics, its is nonetheless a philosophical advance from both Aquinas and Molina's positions."

240 Pages. Memory is a major factor in the composition and practice of liturgy. Recent research into how the brain and memory function points the way to how liturgy can best meet the needs of worshippers. In Memory and Liturgy, Peter Atkins draws on the fruits of his research into the process of the brain and our memory and applies it to liturgical worship. His extensive experience in writing and using liturgy keeps this book rooted in reality. In its ten chapters the author applies the functioning of the brain and the memory to our remembrance of God in worship; God's memory of us through Baptism; our remembrance of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist; the corporate memory of the community created through worship; the healing of memories of sin and pain through forgiveness; three aids to help us worship; the process of continuity and change in liturgy; and the connection between memory, imagination and hope. The conclusion summarizes the main practical issues. This provides a check-list for those serving on Liturgical Commissions and those involved in the teaching of the practice of liturgy. This book is a positive contribution to the ongoing search for suitable liturgical worship and music for the 21st century. Contents: Introduction; Discovering how the brain works; Discovering how memory works; Remembering God; God's memory of us; Remembering Jesus Christ; Corporate memory; Memories of sin and pain; Aids to remembering; Continuity and change; Memory, imagination and hope; Conclusion; Bibliography; Index. Book Description: Retired from a career as an Anglican bishop and theology scholar in Aukland, Atkins became curious about how the workings of the brain, and especially memory, affected the composition and practice of liturgy. After summarizing the findings of his research into the science, he explores remembering God and Jesus Christ, God's memory of people, corpor : Review: 'In this useful and innovative book, Peter Atkins [...] sets out to study the function of memory in relation to worship... Atkins has done us all a considerable favour in pushing at these doors.' The Church Times 'This is a fascinating book which uses research into the workings of the brain and memory function in order to draw some practical conclusions for the liturgical expression of the Church... This book stands alone as a major contribution to the thinking of the Church on matters of liturgy and worship. It should be read by scholars and practitioners, by students of liturgy, and those who create the liturgical texts for our churches. It should be read by those who love the use of books and texts and those who loath them, for it has much to say about the manner in which we enable the people of God to experience and express worship.' Reviews in Religion and Theology 'Books that successfully discuss the nature of Christian worship in relation to both science and theology are a rare breed and so I was pleasantly surprised to read this stimulating and fresh account of worship written by the retired Bishop of Auckland... This book will be a stimulating read for anyone responsible for planning and leading worship and from this perspective one of its most helpful features is a concluding section in which the practical implications of each chapter are summarized.' Theology : About the Author: Bishop Peter Atkins is a retired Anglican Bishop, retired Dean of the National Theological College and lecturer in theology at the University of Auckland.
