About this Item: Warner Books Inc, 1999. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First American Edition. Like-new condition. Stated First U.S. Edition. NO remainder marks or price clippings. 372 pages. NO writing, marks or tears. Book Description What bold new terrain of suspense lies one ingenious step beyond Hitchcock's masterpiece Rear Window? Acclaimed author Carol Smith may have the answer in her latest tour de force. THE NEIGHBORS. The striking, sprawling Victorian building dominates the fashionable London street. During one lonely Christmas season, Kensington Court welcomes a new resident: Kate Ashenberry, in flight from an uncaring family and a broken love affair. In its dark hallways Kate will meet an odd assortment of neighbors: irrepressible Ronnie and Rowena Barclay-Davenport; high-stepping Miles Burdett and his ambitious wife, Claudia; exotic Eleni Papadopoulos from across the hall; acid-tongued dowager Mrs. Adelaide Potter; eligible heartthrob Gregory Hansen; and free-spirited actress Connie Boyle. Some encounters will blossom into friendships; others will grow more menacing than a brush with a stranger ever could be. One potential neighbor has escaped Kate's acquaintance, for journalist Guy Bartlett had tumbled to his death shortly before her arrival. Some tenants say his mysterious five-story fall a continent away was the most exciting story to touch their lives in years. But after Kate moves in, more residents of Kensington Court die, each more horribly than the last.and each bafflingly murdered behind a door locked securely from the inside. Trust between neighbors evaporates. Kate fears her name is climbing higher on the killer's list of victims. And always, across the courtyard at one rear window, a lone, unmarked watcher stands vigil. This is Carol Smith at the height of her gifts, weaving a story of relationships and a tale of mystery with her riveting, signature brilliance. Seller Inventory # 030411

Inspired by the Enlightenment quest for knowledge, they consider it a slur on the age that the interior of Africa still remains a mystery, that maps of the "dark continent" are populated with mythical beasts, imaginary landmarks, and fabled empires. As well, they hoped that more accurate knowledge of Africa would aid in the abolition of the slave trade. Seller Inventory # 007459

About this Item: Angry Robot - A Member of the Osprey Group, Nottingham, United Kingdom, 2014. Trade Paperback. Condition: As New. Anderson,Richard - Cover Art (illustrator). First Printing. 538 Pages. A stunning new epic fantasy from two-time Hugo Award winner Kameron Hurley. On the eve of a recurring catastrophic event known to extinguish nations and reshape continents, a troubled orphan evades death and slavery to uncover her own bloody past while a world goes to war with itself. In the frozen kingdom of Saiduan, invaders from another realm are decimating whole cities, leaving behind nothing but ash and ruin. At the heart of this war lie the pacifistic Dhai people, once enslaved by the Saiduan and now courted by their former masters to provide aid against the encroaching enemy.Stretching from desolate tundra to steamy, semi-tropical climes seething with sentient plant life, this is an epic tale of blood mages and mercenaries, emperors and priestly assassins who must unite to save a world on the brink of ruin. As the dark star of the cataclysm rises, an illegitimate ruler is tasked with holding together a country fractured by civil war; a precocious young fighter is asked to betray his family to save his skin; and a half-Dhai general must choose between the eradication of her father's people or loyalty to her alien Empress. Through tense alliances and devastating betrayal, the Dhai and their allies attempt to hold against a seemingly unstoppable force as enemy nations prepare for a coming together of worlds as old as the universe itself. In the end, one world will rise - and many will perish. Illustrated with a map of The Mirror Empire - The Kingdom of Grania Western Raisa Size: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Seller Inventory # 16151

Elegy for a Lost Star sets the stage for a major turning point in the Symphony of Ages series. The dragon Anwyn--who has lain for three years in deathlike sleep in a grave of rock and black coal is freed by the cataclysm that concluded REQUIEM FOR THE SUN. sisoriented and confused, she remembers only two things-the person who trapped her in dragon form and locked her in the grave-Rhapsody-and an all-encompassing desire to wreak vengeance. Meanwhile, Achmed, the Firbolg king, resumes rebuilding the his shattered home, while a guild of merciless assassins set about taking revenge on him for the killing of their leader. A horribly deformed but magical being finds its way through a carnival of freaks to the palace of an evil despot, who sees in it the potential to be the instrument by which his plans of conquest and brutal domination of a continent will be realized. With the rise of new leaders, good and evil, the long-awaited birth of the Child of Time, the dark plans of assassins and rulers, a confrontation that shakes the relationship of the Three, and a battle to the death between two dragons of unimaginable elemental power, the seeds of chaos are planted for a war that will, by its end, consume half of the world.

About this Item: New York 1990, Knopf, First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped), illus, 3 maps, notes, bibliog, index. . HENRY MORTON STANLEY, who enjoys a wry immortality for the classically fatuous phrase with which he greeted David Livingstone on the shore of Lake Tanganyika, was the most celebrated explorer of an age that worshipped explorers as ours reveres movie stars and rock musicians. A self-made man, imbued with the triumphalism of the Victorian culture from which he sprang, he conquered a continent through grit, resourcefulness, and sheer will. His life is one of the great adventure stories of all time.Stanley was born illegitimate in Wales in 1841, was brought up in a workhouse, fled to America, fought in the Civil War, and became a newspaperman, first covering the Indian Wars and eventually becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. The publisher of the New York Herald sent him to Africa to find Livingstone, and it was Stanley's success in that assignment (as well as "Dr. Livingstone, I presume") that first won him international acclaim.Subsequently he led two further African expeditions of far greater scope and scientific importance. Enduring the most perilous of circumstances-cannibals, treacherous rivers, malaria-and many times narrowly escaping death, he completed Livingstone's work by finding the source of the Nile. He also charted the 2,700-mile-long Congo River and located the legendary Mountains of the Moon in western Uganda. And, in what was one of the nineteenth century's greatest acts of geopolitical piracy, he built the roads and established the river communications that created the so-called Congo Free State (now Zaire) for his patron, King Leopold II of Belgium.To the Victorians, Stanley was the ultimate adventurer, an intrepid individual who reaffirmed their belief in "civilized" man's ability to overcome all physical obstacles as he extended his conquest of the natural world. But there is an adventure no less intriguing, and no less disturbing, in penetrating the heart of darkness that was Stanley's inner life. In Dark Safari, John Bierman, with the help of newly discovered documents, leads us with great style and assurance into the interior of both the man and the vast landmass he tamed.With 19 photographs and 3 maps.

About this Item: Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Annapolis, 1982, Naval Institute, / Moorland press, first US edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG CONDITION, 223 PAGES, illus, maps, index.------------------------------------------------. For most people, the term dive bomber conjures up dramatic pictures of daring low-level air attacks on enemy targets. To many Americans, these images evoke the Douglas Dauntless of World War II, whose dive bombing attacks sank more enemy shipping than all other forms of assault combined from 1941 to 1943. To a younger generation of Americans, dive bomber is synonymous with the Douglas Skyraider, whose angular shape in the skies over Korea and Vietnam brought much-needed support to GIs fighting the Communists.----------------------------------To the British, the term harks back to the Blackburn Skua, that often unfairly derided aircraft expected to serve as a fighter, but far better equipped for its role as a dive bomber. Or it recalls the Barracuda, part dive bomber, part torpedo bomber, which scored a record number of hits on the mighty Tirpitz in 1944. To the Japanese it means the Aichi Val, the plane that spearheaded the attack on Pearl Harbor.------------------------------------- The French will think of the suicidal missions of the Loire-Nieuports and the Vindicators, which flew to death and immortality in the dark days of 1940. Or they will recall the French Dauntless dive bombers that forced the German invader from France in 1944-45 and later pounded the Viet-Minh in Indo-China. Few Europeans who lived through World War II will forget the German dive bomber, the Junkers Ju87 or Stuka, which helped conquer an entire continent in a matter of weeks.In the Soviet Union, the term conjures up the PE-2, one of the most successful of all aircraft of the type, which combined the accuracy of dive bombing with the speed of a fighter.Now, all these bombers, and many of the rarer types as well, are finally given their due in this first full-length illustrated history of dive bombers.

Lenin's ruthless legacy consumed Eastern Europe and toppled governments in virtually every continent. Yet at the moment when the Empire appeared to have reached its zenith, it collapsed like a house of cards. In this seminal work, the eminent British writer and historian Brian Crozier tells the brutal history of the Soviet Empire~its birth, life, and sudden death. The book begins at the beginning, in 1917, when the oversized dreams of Lenin and the happenstance of events conspired to change the course of history. In meticulous detail, Crozier follows the Soviet conquests across Europe and into Asia, Africa, and the Western Hemisphere. He uses recently declassified information from Soviet archives to add texture and depth to the story ~ the betraval at Yalta, the terror of Stalin, the tragedy of Hungary, the split with. China, the false hope of Prague Spring, the rise of Castro, the invasion of Afghanistan, and the crumbling of the Berlin Wall. Revealed along the way is the dark underside of a regime whose march toward supremacy resulted in the loss of tens of millions of lives. Provocative, comprehensive, and majestic in scope, The Rise and Fall of the Soviet Empire is the definitive account of history's most turbulent days. Seller Inventory # 8241601

What Columbus and his successors discovered was an unsuspected continent, a New World full of civilisations strangely different from European societies in their languages, appearances, institutions, religions, architecture and ideas of life and death. In this breathtaking new book, Nicholas J. Saunders explores, among others, the Moche, Nazca, Teotihuacan, Maya, Aztec and Inka cultures who ~ developing in isolation from the rest of the world for thousands of years ~ had created highly sophisticated civilisations without the wheel, draught animals or metal tools. From the first settlements of the Olmecs in Mesoamerica, and South America's great mud~brick cities on Peru's Pacific coast, to the arrival of the Spanish in 1519, the book's unparalleled breadth and scope allow us to appreciate the Pre~Columbian Americas as among the world's greatest flowerings of civilisation. The kingdom of the Nazca is famous for huge desert drawings or 'geoglyphs'; Wari innovations included roadbuilding, planned architecture and agricultural terracing; Teotihuacan, 'place of the gods', was Mesoamerica's greatest metropolis dominated by 600 pyramids and ruled by a secretive elite; and the Maya developed America's most accomplished hieroglyphic writing and mathematical system. The triumphs and tragedies of the European conquest can be fully appreciated in this authoritative overview of Amerindian culture. Nicholas]. Saunders shows that while the indigenous societies collapsed ~ and thousands of years of cultural development disappeared ~ the ultimate result was a new 'mixed society' in which the shadows of the Pre~Columbian world can still be discerned.

In 1880 most of the continent was still ruled by its inhabitants and was barely explored. Yet by 1902, five European powers~ Britain, France, Germany, Belgium and Italy~had grabbed almost all of its ten million square miles, awarding themselves thirty new colonies and protectorates, and 110 million bewildered new subjects. The sudden race for African territory swept the political masters of Europe off of their feet. The British colonial secretary protested this "absurd scramble." The German chancellor, Prince Bismarck, complained that he was being led into a "colonial whirl." The French prime minister called it a "steeple chase into the unknown." Ironically, the provocation for this massive display of greed on the part of the European powers came from the heroic death in 1873 of the missionary~explorer David Livingstone, who had exposed the horrors of the African slave trade then in progress. His call for Africa to be redeemed by the "three C's" ~Commerce, Christianity and Civilization~was aimed at the conscience of the civilized world. However, the initial response came from rival colonial enthusiasts in Europe. There were journalists like Henry Stanley, mariners like Pierre de Brazza, soldiers like Edward Lugard, pedagogues like Karl Peters, and gold~and~diamond tycoons like Cecil Rhodes. At first the governments of Europe attempted to remain aloof from this race, for there seemed little to gain from the expense of building new empires in the desert or in malarial bush and swamp. But Europe was experiencing a period of economic stagnation, and Black Africa might be~as parts of South Africa had already proven~an El Dorado, a huge new market and tropical treasure house. Soon colonial fever swept the Continent, and the acquisition of overseas empire became identified with national prestige. As the Scramble gathered momentum, a fourth "C" ~Conquest~ became dominant. The Maxim machine gun, rather than trade or the Cross, became the symbol of the age. In many colonies atrocities were commonplace and Africans were treated no better than animals. At the center of it all, cunningly exploiting the rivalries around him, stood one enigmatic individual controlling the heart of the Dark Continent: Leopold II, king of the Belgians and personal owner of the Congo State. Ten years in the writing, and involving trips to twenty~two African countries as well as extensive research in Britain, France, Belgium and Germany, Thomas Pakenham's tour de force of historical narrative is the first full~scale history of this extraordinary period. Veering between Europe at the height of its power and Africa in its political infancy, covering a vast terrain and including an enormous cast of characters, The Scramble for Africa is as vivid and as fast moving as any novel.

About this Item: New York 1990, Knopf, First edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, Fine/Fine condition, illus, 3 maps, notes, bibliog, index. . HENRY MORTON STANLEY, who enjoys a wry immortality for the classically fatuous phrase with which he greeted David Livingstone on the shore of Lake Tanganyika, was the most celebrated explorer of an age that worshipped explorers as ours reveres movie stars and rock musicians. A self-made man, imbued with the triumphalism of the Victorian culture from which he sprang, he conquered a continent through grit, resourcefulness, and sheer will. His life is one of the great adventure stories of all time.Stanley was born illegitimate in Wales in 1841, was brought up in a workhouse, fled to America, fought in the Civil War, and became a newspaperman, first covering the Indian Wars and eventually becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. The publisher of the New York Herald sent him to Africa to find Livingstone, and it was Stanley's success in that assignment (as well as "Dr. Livingstone, I presume") that first won him international acclaim.Subsequently he led two further African expeditions of far greater scope and scientific importance. Enduring the most perilous of circumstances-cannibals, treacherous rivers, malaria-and many times narrowly escaping death, he completed Livingstone's work by finding the source of the Nile. He also charted the 2,700-mile-long Congo River and located the legendary Mountains of the Moon in western Uganda. And, in what was one of the nineteenth century's greatest acts of geopolitical piracy, he built the roads and established the river communications that created the so-called Congo Free State (now Zaire) for his patron, King Leopold II of Belgium.To the Victorians, Stanley was the ultimate adventurer, an intrepid individual who reaffirmed their belief in "civilized" man's ability to overcome all physical obstacles as he extended his conquest of the natural world. But there is an adventure no less intriguing, and no less disturbing, in penetrating the heart of darkness that was Stanley's inner life. In Dark Safari, John Bierman, with the help of newly discovered documents, leads us with great style and assurance into the interior of both the man and the vast landmass he tamed.With 19 photographs and 3 maps.

About this Item: HarperCollins, 2003. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Colour plates. Illustrations. Maps. 382 pages clean and tight. On a June day in 1788 a group of learned friends meet for dinner in a London tavern. They are hungry for knowledge: Captain Cook's exploits are still fresh, the world seems within their reach and scientific advances have even allowed them to observe the moon. They consider it a slur on the age that the interior of Africa remains a mystery, and that maps of the `dark continent' are populated with mythical beasts, imaginary geographical features and fabled empires. The gentlemen in London - geographers, scholars, politicians, humanitarian activists and sharp-eyed traders - decide it is time to replace speculation with facts and remove the beasts from the maps. They agree that night to send travellers to look for the great River Niger and its legendary city of gold - Timbuktu. Thus was founded the African Association, the world's first geographical society. Its explorers were a mixed group of soldiers and gentlemen, ex-convicts and social outcasts, among them the extraordinary Mungo Park, whose account of his travels would be a bestseller for more than a century, and Jean Louis Burckhardt, discoverer of Petra and Abu Simbel, the role model for later explorers such as Richard Burton. Their exploits over the next four decades included dramatic crossings of the Sahara, the exploration of the Niger and the Nile, and the search for Timbuktu. These journeys were packed with drama and excitement, thwarted by French revolutionaries and slave traders, made notable by geographical discoveries - and, with very few exceptions, ended in death. The Gates of Africa is a story of passion, ambition, courage and tragedy, a groundbreaking account of the struggle to reveal the mysteries of Africa. Size: 8vo. Seller Inventory # 142244
