Four starred reviews greeted this new, groundbreaking classic from Deborah Wiles! Franny Chapman just wants some peace. But that's hard to get when her best friend is feuding with her, her sister has disappeared, and her uncle is fighting an old war in his head. Her saintly younger brother is no help, and the cute boy across the street only complicates things. Worst of all, everyone is walking around just waiting for a bomb to fall. It's 1962, and it seems that the whole country is living in fear. When President Kennedy goes on television to say that Russia is sending nuclear missiles to Cuba, it only gets worse. Franny doesn't know how to deal with what's going on in the world--no more than she knows with how to deal with what's going on with her family and friends. But somehow she's got to make it.

Every four days there are a million more people on the planet. More people and fewer resources. In this timely work, Alan Weisman examines how we can shrink our collective human footprint so that we don't stomp any more species - including our own - out of existence. The answer: reducing gradually and non-violently the number of humans on the planet whose activities, industries and lifestyles are damaging the Earth. Defining an optimum human population for the Earth is an explosive concept. Weisman, one of the most brilliant environmental writers, will travel the globe, from the settlements of Israel and the plains of Mexico to the bustling streets of Pakistan and the teeming cities of the UK. In his search for answers, he will speak to religious leaders, demographers, ecologists, economists, engineers and agriculturalists in what promises to be an international classic.

A high-tension espionage thriller as gripping as Frederick Forsyth's The Day of the Jackal, or Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October. A Soviet Agent is found dead inside an Israeli nuclear weapons stockpile so secret the United States doesn't know it exists. A Pershing missile that is guarded around the clock is hijacked from a maximum-security installation at a West German Air Force Base. The U.S.S. Indianapolis, a submarine on training maneuvers off the coast of Italy, suddenly ceases transmitting -- then vanishes without a trace. Two men are behind this deadly wave of terror. Colonel Valentin Baranov, the new head of the KGB, a man intent on destroying glasnost and rekindling the Cold War. And Arkady Kurshin, the ruthless assassin who is Baranov's finest weapon. To stop them, the CIA must turn to maverick agent Kirk McGarvey, a trained killer as deadly as Kurshin. Driven by a vendetta against Baranov, McGarvey stalks Kurshin across the face of Europe, determined to find him before the clock runs out on an act of terrorism so devastating it could alter the balance of world power forever. But a mole inside the Agency is monitoring McGarvery's every move. And the KGB has captured the woman McGavery has come to love...

On 11 May 1998 the Indian government tested five nuclear devices some forty kilometres from Pokaran. Seventeen days later Pakistan tested nuclear devices of its own. About three months after the tests, Amitav Ghosh went to the Pokaran area, after which he visited Kashmir as part of the defence minister s entourage. He also went to the Siachen glacier in the Karakoram mountains where Indian and Pakistani soldiers have been exchanging fire since 1983. Ghosh then travelled through Pakistan and Nepal. Countdown is partly a result of these journeys and conversations with many hundreds of people of the subcontinent.
