Product# 460678734

"The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it -- from garden seeds to Scripture -- is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in post-colonial Africa. The novel is set against one of the most dramatic political chronicles of the 20th century: the Congo's fight for independence from Belgium; the murder of its first elected prime minister; the CIA coup to install his replacement; and the insidious progress of a world economic order that robs the fledgling African nation of its autonomy."



Marketing Channels

Product# 460679220
Selling for $142.2

"The ideas in this book apply to any channel for any product or service in any market. The generality of the book is shown in its many examples taken from all over the world. These cover a wealth of different products and services, sold to businesses and consumers, selected from the worldwide business press, research, and consulting. Examples range from autopsies, dog and cat food, personal computers, pleasure boats, and dolls, to stereo speakers, fast food, tires, garden products, and fast-moving consumer goods; and from maternity clothing, uninterruptible power supplies, and maintenance, repair, and operating (MRO) goods, to furniture, automobiles, airline travel services, and mutual funds. The variety of the examples reinforces the generality of the principles. As is appropriate for an international readership, the presentation of each example assumes that the reader is unfamiliar with the product or market in question. The book presents the concepts needed to frame the problem, then explores the channel issues in depth by means of the examples."

Origin of Species

Product# 460686629
Selling for $10.95

"In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. Arguing for a material, not divine, origin of species, he showed that new species are achieved by 'natural selection'. Development, diversification, decay, extinction and absence of plan are all inherent to his theories. Darwin read prodigiously across many fields; he reflected on his experiences as a traveller, he experimented. His profoundly influential concept of 'natural selection' condenses materials from past and present, from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters. The Origin communicates the enthusiasm of original thinking in an open, descriptive style, and Darwin's emphasis on the value of diversity speaks more strongly now than ever."

The Garden of Priapus; Sexuality and Aggression in Roman Humor

Product# 460768158
Selling for $53

"Statues of the god Priapus stood in Roman gardens to warn potential thieves that the god would rape them if they attempted to steal from him. In this book, Richlin argues that the attitude of sexual aggressiveness in defense of a bounded area serves as a model for Roman satire from Lucilius to Juvenal. Using literary, anthropological, psychological, and feminist methodologies, she suggests that aggressive sexual humor reinforces aggressive behavior on both the individual and societal levels, and that Roman satire provides an insight into Roman culture. Including a substantial and provocative new introduction, this revised edition is important not only as an in-depth study of Roman sexual satire, but also as a commentary on the effects of all humor on society and its victims."
