Paperback: $25.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
(2 Ratings)
"Blumenstand" (German for Flowers-stand") is an almost comprehensive collection of the Author's nonscientific essays and miscellaneous writings covering a period of more than... More > thirty-five years. The articles touch upon a great variety of both academic and nonacademic topics from anthropology to sociology, from psychology to philosophy, from history to music, from literature to politics and political science, from religion to morality, from chessplaying to dartplaying, from horseracing and travel to whisly-distilling, etc. For the sake of levity, even some jokes and humorous anecdotes are included. However, there is no unifying theme as such, and neither the collection nor its presentation have any particular sequence or structure. The book is richly illustrated, as per topic relevance. It is sincerely hoped that this modest anthology will serve both informative and entertaining purposes. This is a recently completed original literary work, first published in December, 2007.< Less

More > products. Distillation is often the process done in order to extract oils from plants. Steam is essential in being able to get the oils out of the plants and in being able to preserve them well. Throughout history, essential oils have been used for a variety of reasons, such as for medicinal and aesthetic purposes. Using essential oils in beauty products is ideal because they come from plants, which means that they are natural and there are no side effects to using them. Using essential oils is also a form of aromatherapy. Plus, being able to create your own beauty products with the help of different essential oils would be so much fun. Aside from being able to use the products on your own, you may also sell them to your friends and colleagues.< Less

Frantz Funck-Brentano to the English public by my translation of his Legendes et Archives de la Bastille, and in my preface to that book I gave a... More > rapid sketch of his career which need not be repeated. If history is to be continually reconstructed, or rather, perhaps, to undergo a process of destructive distillation, there is no one more competent than M. Funck-Brentano to perform the feat. We lose our illusions with our teeth; the fables that charmed our childhood dissolve in the modern historian's test-tube, and the mysteries that fascinated our forebears become clear with a few drops of his critical acid. In his former book, M. Funck-Brentano solved once for all the mystery of the Man in the Iron Mask, showed up the impostor Latude in his true colours, and gave us surprising information about the latter days of the Bastille.< Less

Don't Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change By Harold Ambler
eBook (ePub): $9.37
Global warming is a household phrase these days, and it has led to a situation in which far too many educated people believe that mankind is hastening the destruction of the world through industry... More > and civilization. But where is the evidence to support these claims? In this impossible-to-put-down book Harold Ambler presents the history of climate in ways that are accessible to the average Joe or Jill and which make it clear that in terms of temperature, weather, and climate we have been here before.

He also deftly connects political stakeholders in the global warming arena to various distortions of the science. This distillation of information gives the reader the ability to decide whether global warming is a tangible threat or a convenient propaganda tool.< Less

The Rabbahs were at first preserved only orally; but their writing down commenced in the 2nd century, and they now exist in the shape chiefly of exegetical or homiletical commentaries on the Torah. Midrashic literature is worthwhile reading not only for its insights into Judaism and the history of Jewish thought, but also for the more incidental data it provides to historians, philologists, philosophers, and scholars of either historical-critical Bible study or comparative religion.< Less
