Paris To The Moon - A Family In France, Adam Copnik
2 Adam Copnik Paris To The Moon - A Family In France
Vintage 237961 London 2001 0099772019 / 9780099772019 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket In 1995, Adam Gopnik, his wife, and their infant son left the familiar comforts and hassles of New York for the urbane glamour of Paris. Charmed by the beauties of the city, Gopnik set out to experience for himself the spirit and romance that has so captivated American writers throughout the twentieth century. In the grand tradition of Stein and Hemingway, Gopnik planned to walk the paths of the Tuilleries, to enjoy philosophical discussion in cafes - in short, to lead the fabled life of an American in Paris. Of course, there was also the matter of raising a child and carrying on with everyday, not-so-fabled life. 338 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Swedish Mentality, Ake Daun
4 Ake Daun Swedish Mentality
The Pennsylvania State University Press 247726 Pennsylvania 1996 0271015020 / 9780271015026 Softcover Very Good Condition Is there a distinctly Swedish national character? Are Swedes truly shy, unemotional, conflict-avoiding, melancholy, and dour? Swedish Mentality, the English translation of the hugely successful book published in Sweden in 1989, considers the reality behind the myth. The author, ke Daun, is a respected ethnologist who is sometimes referred to as the "guru" of Swedish character. In recent years, it has become popular to discuss Swedishness and Swedish identity. The advent of the European Union and the increasing presence of immigrant refugees in Sweden have fueled public debate on the distinctiveness of Swedish culture. Daun, however, goes beyond stereotype, drawing upon statistics gathered over more than a decade of research. The result is an entertaining and engagingly written book. Throughout, Daun quotes from interviews with native Swedes and immigrants as well as from travel accounts, folklore, and proverbs. We learn why some Swedes might prefer to walk up a flight of stairs rather than share an elevator with a neighbor and why some gain satisfaction from walking alone in the woods or going fishing. Daun describes a range of factors influencing Swedish character, including population composition, rural background, and even climate. He recognizes behavioral variations related to gender, age, class, and region, and he considers subtleties of individual character as well. Swedish Mentality should interest a wide array of readers, whether of Swedish descent or not. 236 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Here To Eternity: An Anthology of Poetry, Andrew Motion
14 Andrew Motion Here To Eternity: An Anthology of Poetry
Faber and Faber 245787 Great Britain 2002 0571215653 / 9780571215652 Softcover Very Good Condition Since becoming Poet Laureate in 1999, Andrew Motion has been tireless in his efforts to raise the profile of poetry. In this anthology, he has brought together a wide range of poems, exemplifying his belief that, if we let it, poetry has a unique power to enrich our lives as it diversifies them.

Each section is distinct but seeks out resemblances and echoes elsewhere, creating the impression of an endlessly expanding universe. From Wallace Stevens to Stevie Smith, Joseph Brodsky, to Jo Shapcott, Bob Dylan to Dylan Thomas, Ben Jonson to Benjamin Zephaniah, this anthology should provide the perfect introduction for new readers and offer surprising connections and revelations to those who are already well-versed. 402 pages.

University of Queensland Press 247785 Australia 2007 0702236187 / 9780702236181 Softcover Good Condition Is the pace and scale of global trade endangering our livestock, hospitals and waterways? How vulnerable is our food to bacterial, viral and fungal invaders? Do certain trade goods cause more biological trouble than others? And - most importantly - how can we do things differently? Whether it's pandemics like avian flu, the potential loss of most of the world's banana crops to disease, or the devastation of a foot-and-mouth epidemic, the deadly pace of globalization and biological traffic in all living things invites disaster. While we enjoy our twenty-first century global lifestyle - international travel, cheap imported cars, summer fruits in the supermarket year-round thanks to global food sourcing - it's all too easy to forget the downside. Pandemonium is a vital guide to the hidden consequences of globalization. Continue those preparations and protect what is uniquely yours- Australia. 306 pages. Spine slanted. Quantity Available: 1.
