182 David Freidel, Linda Schele

Forest of Kings : The Untold Story of the Ancient Maya
NY
William Morrow
1990


Soft Cover
Very Good





Minor edgewear and spine crease otherwise a fine clean sturdy copy. From the publisher;"The recent interpretation of Maya hieroglyphs has given us the first written history of the New World as it existed before the European invasion. In this book, two of the first central figures in the massive effort to decode the glyphs, Linda Schele and David Freidel, make this history available in all its detail. A Forest of Kings is the story of Maya kingship, from the beginning of its institution and the first great pyramid builders two thousand years ago to the decline of Maya civilization and its destruction by the Spanish. Here the great historic rulers of pre-Columbian civilization come to life again with the decipherment of their writing. At its height, Maya civilization flourished under great kings like Shield-Jaguar, who ruled for more than sixty years, expanding his kingdom and building some of the most impressive works of architecture in the ancient world. Long placed on a mist-shrouded pedestal as austere, peaceful stargazers, the Maya elites are now known to have been the rulers of populous, aggressive city-states. Hailed as "a Rosetta stone of Maya civilization" (Brian M. Fagan, author of People of the Earth), A Forest of Kings is "a must for interested readers," says Evon Vogt, professor of anthropology at Harvard University. "

192 Dedopolus, Tom

The Brotherhood: Inside the Secret World of the Freemasons
U.S.A.
Thunder's Mouth Press
2005
1560258292 / 9781560258292

Soft Cover
Very Good





A clean fresh copy with only a touch of edgewear. From the publisher:"The Freemasons are the world’s best-known fraternity. Famous for their secretive nature and impressive roster of historical members, they are often regarded as a sinister force operating behind the scenes. Some dismiss them as a group of old men who dress up to play games and indulge in a convivial dinner. Others believe they are a corrupting network of avid nepotists and political dabblers, pulling society’s strings for their own dark ends.This is a long way from the Order’s original reputation as a force of enlightenment, social responsibility, and scientific awareness. Behind the rumors, hearsay, and façade of secrecy, Freemasonry resonates with a beautiful tradition of philosophical symbolism. The journey through the degrees of Masonry is the journey through life itself.Written by the grandson of a very high-ranking Mason, The Brotherhood is a fascinating look inside an enigmatic institution. Starting with the visible structure of international Freemasonry and the myths and legends that surround it, the book moves on to examine the true meaning of Freemasonry—its mythological and real history, its social context, and the symbolism and philosophy that illuminates every aspect of the Craft, with a look at the current state of Freemasonry today."

First Edition

Signed by Author
BRAND NEW UNREAD COPY SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Exposed is a collection of non-fiction articles blended with history, science, and politics that tell the true story of Libby, Montana: a small town exposed to toxic asbestos fibres from the W.R. Grace mine production during 1963 to 1990. The book covers other related topics such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and the characteristics of vermiculite and asbestos. W.R. Grace sold Zonolite Attic Insulation worldwide from 1963 to 1984. The company was indicted in February 2005 for several charges including wired fraud, Clean Air Act violations, and concealment of information about asbestos health hazards from Libby residents. W.R. Grace's trial, originally set for September 2006, has been postponed to the following year. This book is meant as an introduction to the asbestos issues and the W.R. Grace scandal. Exposed aims to bridge the gap between science and the lay reader, by producing a text that is simple and readable. Do you have Zonolite in your attic? Apparently millions of people do. In “Exposed,” Demetra Dimokopoulos tells the disturbing true story behind this once-popular product. Zonolite was produced by a company based in the small town of Libby, Montana. The company was a major local employer, offering security and good pay. But what the workers didn’t know—although the company itself did—was that they were working with a product contaminated with a toxic mineral: tremolite asbestos. When inhaled, tremolite fibres lodge in the lungs and can eventually develop into cancerous tumours. Those who worked with Zonolite usually came home covered in dust and so unknowingly exposed their families to the danger. In the 1970s, Dimokopoulos reports, Libby residents breathed in millions of asbestos fibres every day. Inevitably, some of them went on to develop the lung disease asbestosis while others now suffer from a rare cancer called mesothelioma. Dimokopoulos is a recent graduate of the University of Toronto, and “Exposed” is her first book. She recounts this public health disaster in a clear, journalistic writing style. She explains asbestos-related diseases without getting bogged down in medical details, and includes ghastly photos of diseased organs. For further information, there are some website addresses and many references. This short, thought-provoking book will likely leave you feeling outraged. How could a company dare to deceive its employees for so long? And how can we prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again? Reviewed by Julie Falkner, Allbooks Review
