The Revolution

The Revolution: A Manifesto by Ron Paul
**#1 *NEW YORK TIMES *BESTSELLER
This much is true: You have been lied to.
**
The government is expanding.
Taxes are increasing.
More senseless wars are being planned.
Inflation is ballooning.
Our basic freedoms are disappearing. The Founding Fathers didn’t want any of this. In fact, they said so quite clearly in the Constitution of the United States of America. Unfortunately, that beautiful, ingenious, and revolutionary document is being ignored more and more in Washington. If we are to enjoy peace, freedom, and prosperity once again, we absolutely must return to the principles upon which America was founded. But finally, there is hope . . .
In THE REVOLUTION,* *Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has exposed the core truths behind everything threatening America, from the *real *reasons behind the collapse of the dollar and the looming financial crisis, to terrorism and the loss of our precious civil liberties. In this book, Ron Paul provides answers to questions that few even dare to ask.
Despite a media blackout, this septuagenarian physician-turned-congressman sparked a movement that has attracted a legion of young, dedicated, enthusiastic supporters . . . a phenomenon that has amazed veteran political observers and made more than one political rival envious. Candidates across America are already running as “Ron Paul Republicans.”
“Dr. Paul cured my apathy,” says a popular campaign sign. THE REVOLUTION may cure yours as well.

Revealed

Tom Daniels is a necromancer.  He’s also a half-breed, and he’d just found out a lot of unpleasant truths from his insane captor.  Yet, he didn’t know nearly enough to pick a true course, not about the current world of paranormal beings, nor of the past and the truth of the blight. Things are about to get even harder, as life hits him hard from directions he’d never expected.  Things hadn’t gone nearly the way he’d thought they would after he’d been rescued from Macy’s clutches. Then there was Sara, the information he sent her for, about the mysterious bond, and the prophecy.  Was the prophecy real?  Could it be him?  He wasn’t sure, and in the end, it didn’t matter.  He wasn’t going to stop looking until he found the truth.

But when the statues are stolen and Eddie is falsely accused of murder, forcing him to go on the run to hunt the man responsible, a violent struggle erupts among a secret, vastly powerful group that wants to control Nina and the earth energy. From a glittering, high-tech skyscraper in Japan to a harrowing chase beneath the Vatican and an underground military vault in Nevada, she and Eddie must piece together an astounding puzzle.

Return of the Primitive

The Return of the Primitive: The Anti-Industrial Revolution by Ayn Rand
In the tumultuous late 60s and early 70s, a social movement known as the “New Left” emerged as a major cultural influence, especially on the youth of America. It was a movement that embraced “flower-power” and psychedelic “consciousness-expansion,” that lionized **Ho Chi Minh** and **Fidel Castro** and launched the Black Panthers and the Theater of the Absurd.In **Return Of The Primitive** (originally published in 1971 as **The New Left**), **Ayn Rand**, bestselling novelist and originator of the theory of Objectivism, identified the intellectual roots of this movement. She urged people to repudiate its mindless nihilism and to uphold, instead, a philosophy of reason, individualism, capitalism, and technological progress.Editor **Peter Schwartz**, in this new, expanded version of **The New Left**, has reorganized Rand’s essays and added some of his own in order to underscore the continuing relevance of her analysis of that period. He examines such current ideologies as feminism, environmentalism and multiculturalism and argues that the same primitive, tribalist, “anti-industrial” mentality which animated the New Left a generation ago is shaping society today.

The Return of the Native

‘To be loved to madness – such was her great desire’ Eustacia Vye criss-crosses the wild Egdon Heath, eager to experience life to the full in her quest for ‘music, poetry, passion, war’. She marries Clym Yeobright, native of the heath, but his idealism frustrates her romantic ambitions and her discontent draws others into a tangled web of deceit and unhappiness. Early readers responded to Hardy’s ‘insatiably observant’ descriptions of the heath, a setting that for D. H. Lawrence provided the ‘real stuff of tragedy’. For modern readers, the tension between the mythic setting of the heath and the modernity of the characters challenges our freedom to shape the world as we wish; like Eustacia, we may not always be able to live our dreams. This edition has a critically established text based on the manuscript and first edition. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World’s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford’s commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

And all the while the armies of the Dark Lord are massing as the One Ring draws ever nearer to the Cracks of Doom.

Return of Sherlock Holmes

SUMMARY: Sherlock Holmes was not the only writing Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) did but Holmes and Dr. Watson are his most remembered characters. Holmes titled himself a “Consulting Detective”. His powers of observation, his understanding of crime, and his insights into the criminal mind were brilliant. His knowledge of things not related to crime were extemely limited, except in opera and the violin. Like many other authors famous for a single character, Arthur Conan Doyle attempted to “kill” Holmes. But the readers would not let this happen. Holmes eventually appeared in 56 short stories and 4 novels.

The Return of Nathan Brazil

###
Welcome to the Well World: a construct of an ancient defunct race known as the Markovians. The Well World acts both as the controller of and the gateway to 1560 worlds created by the Markovians at the end of their time.
Humanity is reeling when the Dreel (a viral, hive-minded species) attack the Milky Way and seem ready to take over the galaxy. In desperation they go back to the ancient sciences of the defunct race of Markovians which no one really understands.
But using science concepts as alien and as powerful as those of the Markovians can have dire consequences, as the humans discover when they inadvertently create a situation which can lead to the destruction of the universe itself.
The Well World can help prevent total destruction, but the planet-sized computer has itself been damaged and must be repaired before it can be used to save the universe. Nathan Brazil can fix the damage, but where is Nathan Brazil? It is up to Mavra Chang and Obie the sentient robot to find Brazil before the entire universe is destroyed.
The Return of Nathan Brazil is the fourth book set in the Well World universe.

Retribution

By the summer of 1944 it was clear that Japan’s defeat was inevitable, but how the drive to victory would be achieved remained unclear. The ensuing drama—that ended in Japan’s utter devastation—was acted out across the vast theater of Asia in massive clashes between army, air, and naval forces.
In recounting these extraordinary events, Max Hastings draws incisive portraits of MacArthur, Mao, Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, and other key figures of the war in the East. But he is equally adept in his portrayals of the ordinary soldiers and sailors caught in the bloodiest of campaigns.
With its piercing and convincing analysis, **Retribution** is a brilliant telling of an epic conflict from a master military historian at the height of his powers.

But how can any man hope to outwit himself?

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Facing annihilation at the hands of the warlike Vogons is a curious time to have a craving for tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his curious comrades in arms as they hurtle across space powered by pure improbabilityband desperately in search of a place to eat.
Among Arthur’s motley shipmates are Ford Prefect, a longtime friend and expert contributor to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy; Zaphod Beeblebrox, the three-armed, two-headed ex-president of the galaxy; Tricia McMillan, a fellow Earth refugee who’s gone native (her name is Trillian now); and Marvin, the moody android who suffers nothing and no one very gladly. Their destination? The ultimate hot spot for an evening of apocalyptic entertainment and fine dining, where the food (literally) speaks for itself.
Will they make it? The answer: hard to say. But bear in mind that the Hitchhiker’s Guide deleted the term “Future Perfect” from its pages, since it was discovered not to be!
“What’s such fun is how amusing the galaxy looks through Adams’ sardonically silly eyes.”
