    National Geographic Family Reference Atlas
    A modern atlas, especially one designed as a general family reference, demands not just state-of-the-art cartography but a vast array of information organized clearly, efficiently, and above all, usefully - and that's what the Family Reference Atlas provides: more than 1,000 maps, illustrations, and photographs; more than 400 charts and tables; and 30 global thematic spreads displaying key facts and figures on everything from biodiversity and the distribution of natural resources to world health and education, global Internet connectivity, and conflict and terror hotspots. Upgrades include a completely revamped and much expanded section on Europe, 32 new inset maps detailing the smaller Caribbean islands, and even a new spread on Mars highlighting spectacular images from the latest mission. A comprehensive index makes it easy to pinpoint more than 40,000 locations all over the globe. Need to know the population of Brunei, what the weather's like in San Juan in March, or how to use metric conversions? These answers and thousands more are at your fingertips. Readers learn about the planet itself - landforms, the biosphere, continental drift, environmental change - and the human world's many dimensions, from political, religious, and economic data to population trends and the effect of globalization. The atlas even reaches beyond Earth to explore the solar system, the Milky Way, and the Universe. Book dimensions: 13.6 x 10.5 x 1.1 inches No reasonable offer refused.

    Shen Fu - Six Records Of A Floating Life
    Shen Fu - Six Records of a Floating Life Leonard Pratt, and Chiang Su-hui Shen Fu's reflections on his life as a magistrate's secretary, a loving husband, a painter and an unsuccessful tradesman were written in 1809 and have been a Chinese favourite ever since. Many themes explored in the memoirs give today's reader new insights into Chinese society: the powerful role of the courtesan, the unrecognized status of the government clerk, the arrogance of the untrained officials and the formal and often strained family relationships and arranged marriages. Shen Fu himself had a difficult life and was ill-equipped to cope with it. Many of the problems he encountered have their parallels in contemporary society and, as the translators point out in their Introduction, 'Shen Fu has left us a lively portrait of his era that in places strikes chords remarkably resonant with our own.' Penguin Books, 1983. ISBN 0-14-044429-7. Soft cover, 5 inches wide by 7-3/4 inches tall, 163 pages and 6 maps. Slight edge wear, and creased spine. Clean and firmly bound. Under 1 lb.

The Destruction of the American Indian --- By His Enemies and By His Friends. by Earl Shorris From the back cover: This is the story of a proud, profoundly wise culture, which now seems doomed to extinction. It is the story of the American Indian, who first had his lands wrested away, and now [1972] is undergoing the final destruction of his identity. There are many actors in this drama: the Bureau of Indian Affairs and its strangling lover's embrace; the last great chiefs and medicine men, struggling to keep alive their ancient traditions; the anthropologists and hippies, with their destructive invasions; the new Indian radicals, angry and divided; and above all, the ordinary Indians, in the reservations and in the cities, marked by the white world for spiritual death. . . . It is history. It is news. It is tragedy.

    The American Indian - His Life And Customs
    The American Indian, His Life and Customs Booklet from the John Hancock Life Insurance Co., 1939. This booklet sets out to tell about the American Indian. It has sections on the origins of the Indians; Indian Traditions and Legends; Indian Villages and Houses; Indian Furniture and Household Utensils; Indian Clothing; Indian Food; Indian Ceremonies; Indian Children; Indian Chiefs; Indian Medicine Men; Indian Burial. There are drawings on the inside front and back, and small pictures and verses, probably from Hiawatha but not credited, scattered throughout. The conclusion states: With all his courage, picturesqueness, and fancy, the Indian was a primitive man, a savage, -- weird, mystical, envious, ignorant, and cruel -- who, in the progress of civilization and the upward trend of mankind, must give way to more highly civilized peoples, a more cultured race. Yet we must not forget the part the Indian has played in the development of American life. Th him we owe the cultivation of various foods, whech have become staple American products; from him we gain much that is vital and rich in our history and literature. The canoe and the snowshoe are survivals of the Indian. We have recognized the wholesome and rugged qualities of the out-of-door life of the Indian and have adopted it as an educative force in the training of the child of today, as is evidenced in the Girl and Boy Scout Movement. In his free, out-of-door life, the First American attained great physical vigor, dauntless courage, and a quick intelligence. In the same manner these wholesome virtues can be obtained by the American of today. Published by the John Hancock Insurance Co., 1939, there is no author credited. The booklet is 4-1/2 x 6 inches, with 16 pages. There is a place on the back cover where an envelope apparently stuck, and was pulled off. Under 1 lb. Shipping information will be found at the bottom of the home page. May be shipped Media (10 - 16 days) or Priority (3 - 4 days). For International shipping, please ask for cost quote.
