Family, obsession, and privilege boiled down by the icy-hot Swiss-Italian master stylist Fleur Jaeggy Even among Fleur Jaeggy’s singular and intricate works, The Water Statues is a shiningly peculiar book. Concerned with loneliness and wealth’s odd emotional poverty, this early novel is in part structured as a play: the dramatis personae include the various relatives, friends, and servants of a man named Beeklam, a wealthy recluse who keeps statues in his villa’s flooded basement, where memories shiver in uncertain light and the waters run off to the sea. Dedicated to Ingeborg Bachmann and fleshed out with Jaeggy’s austere yet voluptuous style, The Water Statues—with its band of deracinated, loosely related souls (milling about as often in the distant past as in the mansion’s garden full of intoxicated snails)—delivers like a slap an indelible picture of the swampiness of family life.

Guide to U.S. Environmental Policy provides the analytical connections showing readers how issues and actions are translated into public policies and persistent institutions for resolving or managing environmental conflict in the U.S. The guide highlights a complex decision-making cycle that requires the cooperation of government, business, and an informed citizenry to achieve a comprehensive approach to environmental protection. The book’s topical, operational, and relational essays address development of U.S. environmental policies, the federal agencies and public and private organizations that frame and administer environmental policies, and the challenges of balancing conservation and preservation against economic development, the ongoing debates related to turning environmental concerns into environmental management, and the role of the U.S. in international organizations that facilitate global environmental governance. Key Features: 30 essays by leading conservationists and scholars in the field investigate the fundamental political, social, and economic processes and forces driving policy decisions about the protection and future of the environment. Essential themes traced through the chapters include natural resource allocation and preservation, human health, rights of indigenous peoples, benefits of recycling, economic and other policy areas impacted by responses to green concerns, international cooperation, and immediate and long-term costs associated with environmental policy. The essays explore the impact made by key environmental policymakers, presidents, and politicians, as well as the topical issues that have influenced U.S. environmental public policy from the colonial period to the present day. A summary of regulatory agencies for environmental policy, a selected bibliography, and a thorough index are included. This must-have reference for political science and public policy students who seek to understand the forces that U.S. environmental policy is suitable for academic, public, high school, government, and professional libraries.

SWEET PAIN is a remarkable story of adventure and human perseverance as experienced by Eero Sorila in the course of his travels through 180 countries. In this third edition of Sweet Pain Eero shares with us his adventures in 20 countries. Mr. Sorila also reveals his basic philosophy of travel, namely that willpower is more important than monetary power, that relationships are more important than comfortable accommodations, and that the experience of Providence is more than just sheer luck. The book is a page-turner since at the conclusion of almost every episode he leaves us with the question, “How can you top that?” or with the exclamation, “That’s incredible!” These gripping narratives of raw adventure are accompanied by 128 photos of nature and human interest.

This Complete Apocalyptic Novel Series (Books 1-7) begins when ragtag survivors of an alien invasion try to save humanity from the Book of Revelation’s seven seals. Tag along with the gang as they fight their way through the apocalypse while facing zombies, aliens, and a few strange creatures. (Book 1) Sarah Van Dam is a divorced mom with two teenage sons, Willis and Georgie. Dealing with her abusive ex-husband is nothing when compared to the return of the seven seals from the Book of Revelation. The first seal, White Horse, brings an alien invasion and a false messiah. Earth’s environment is altered, a zombie plague is unleashed, and a hybrid species is created by breeding with the uninfected. A small portion of the population is immune to the spores’ infection; this includes Sarah, her sons and Jack, a man she releases from jail. With the help of scientists Professor Dillon and Max, Father Mitch, a small militia group and a couple pet dogs, these ragtag survivors fight the aliens and attempt to save the planet from the seven judgments. (Book 2) Ragtag survivors of the first seal (White Horse) successfully rid Earth of the aliens. Staying clear of nuclear power plant meltdowns seemed to be the worst thing they would have to deal with, aside from an occasional zombie. That was, until the second seal (Red Horse) was opened and civil unrest began. Zombie cocoons hatched into mutants, children became gunmen, and animals turned violent, even one of their own people began changing into a zombie. When they finally reached the prepper compound where they thought they would find safety, they found something unexpected, instead. (Book 3) Sarah, Jack, Max, Willis, Georgie, Miss Foo, Father Mitch, and prepper Randy are captured by the half-breeds and are to be fed to the alien bioship. While onboard the spaceship, they end up inside Mars where dinosaurs from the Mesozoic Era roam and creatures are jailed. (Book 4) Our ragtag characters must endure the opening of the fourth seal and the violence, famine, pestilence, and beasts that it brings. The zombies have returned, the alien moss has morphed into something more destructive, and The Community has begun taking the tainted biological warfare vaccine again. Will they be able to escape from Death and the aliens? Or will they finally reach their breaking point and be fed to the bioship? Find out by tagging along with the gang in this lighthearted and upbeat story. (Book 5) Forced off Earth because of an alien invasion, our haggard crew must find a new home. While Infinity One is designed for deep space flight, it is virtually untested as it sets out on its maiden voyage into the solar system. (Book 6) Close to perishing, the battered crew of Infinity One must risk their lives—and sacrifice one—to assure that human life continues on. (Book 7) The depleted crew have made many sacrifices as they fought their way through the Book of Revelation’s first six seals. Now with the last seal hanging over their heads, will they finally meet their match in these last days? Find out in this final book of the Seven Seals Redux series. Suspenseful and optimistic, this apocalyptic series follows ordinary people as they try to carry out the impossible task of saving mankind.

Quo Vadis

Quo vadis is Latin for "Where are you going?" and alludes to a New Testament verse (John 13:36). The verse, in the King James Version, reads as follows, "Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards." Quo Vadis tells of a love that develops between a young Christian woman, Ligia (or Lygia), and Marcus Vinicius, a Roman patrician. It takes place in the city of Rome under the rule of emperor Nero around AD 64. Sienkiewicz studied the Roman Empire extensively prior to writing the novel, with the aim of getting historical details correct. As such, several historical figures appear in the book. As a whole, the novel carries a powerful pro-Christian message. Published in installments in three Polish dailies in 1895, it came out in book form in 1896 and has since been translated into more than 50 languages. This novel contributed to Sienkiewicz's Nobel Prize for literature in 1905.
