Taschen 242888 Great Britain 2006 3822849677 / 9783822849675 Softcover Near Fine Condition Besides feeding pandas and making a yummy addition to many Asian dishes, bamboo is also used as a building material, both functional and decorative. The dried stems are extremely sturdy and lend themselves to a multitude of uses. Shigeru Ban, for example, found a way to create lumber from laminated woven bamboo for a house he designed in Beijing. Other houses show off bamboo in more straightforward ways, lining the ceilings or floors with stems, or even forming walls. Bamboo is also used to construct furniture, lending a chair or a bed a warm, earthy feeling. This unique look book captures the many uses of bamboo in houses throughout China, Japan, and Indonesia. 191 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

The Bride Stripped Bare, Anonymous
7 Anonymous The Bride Stripped Bare
4th Estate 238933 London 2003 0007170866 / 9780007170869 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket This novel of sex, secrecy, and escape by an anonymous writer begins with a missing woman; her car lies abandoned on a remote bluff but no body is found. She was the good wife and mother: mannerly, quiet, and self-contained. But she has left behind an incendiary diary chronicling a disturbing journey of sexual awakening. As the diary opens on her honeymoon in Morocco, she believes herself to be happy . Swiftly, however, this smooth surface is ruptured as an act of massive betrayal propels her into a world of desire, fantasy and recklessness. What begins for her in the imagination ends in a downward spiral of obsession and release. The protagonist finds an unlikely heroine to inspire her in a dusty, rare manuscript written by an anonymous woman in the 1600s, a cry from the heart for women to live and love freely. With this as her guide, she dares to challenge convention as she learns the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. The question is, how long can her soul sustain a perilous double life? Coolly impassioned, "The Bride Stripped Bare" explores the truth about love and sex. Couched in a deceptively simple style, it will make you question whether it is ever entirely possible to know another person. 376 pages. Pen mark to bottom of page edges indicating remainder mark.

The Threepenny Opera [Methuen Student Editions], Bertolt Brecht [Translated by Ralph Manhei and John Willett]
19 Bertolt Brecht [Translated by Ralph Manhei and John Willett] The Threepenny Opera [Methuen Student Editions]
Methuen 234765 2005 041377452X / 9780413774521 Softcover Good Condition This Student Edition of Brecht's satire on the capitalist society of the Weimar Republic features an extensive introduction and commentary that includes a plot summary, discussion of the context, themes, characters, style and language as well as questions for further study and notes on words and phrases in the text. It is the perfect edition for students of theatre and literature.Based on John Gay's eighteenth century Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera, first staged in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm in Berlin, is a vicious satire on the bourgeois capitalist society of the Weimar Republic, but set in a mock-Victorian Soho. It focuses on the feud between Macheaf - an amoral criminal - and his father in law, a racketeer who controls and exploits London's beggars and is intent on having Macheaf hanged. Despite the resistance by Macheaf's friend the Chief of Police, Macheaf is eventually condemned to hang, until in a comic reversal the queen pardons him and grants him a title and land. With Kurt Weill's unforgettable music - one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz to the theatre - it became a popular hit throughout the western world. The text is presented in the trusted translation by Ralph Manheim and John Willett. 131 pages. Cover has a few creases. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

20 Bill Gates The Road Ahead
Viking 237413 Australia 1995 0670859133 / 9780670859139 Hardcover Good Condition Good The author of this book about the future, Bill Gates, is the Harvard dropout who founded Microsoft based on his vision of a personal computer on every desk and in every home. Focusing on the so-called "information superhighway", Gates describes the breathtaking changes that will affect us all, and how emerging technologies will transform human existence in unprecedented ways. Written in a personal style, free of jargon, this book ushers in the world of tomorrow in broad and confident terms. It debunks certain notions that have gained attention in the media, and makes projections grounded in the realities of today. Gates describes how the tools of the future will change the way we make choices about almost everything, from which toaster we buy to who our friends are and how we spend time with them; from how we earn and invest, to where we live and how we protect our families in an increasingly complicated world. 286 pages.
