It is the Day of the Dead. The fiesta in full swing. In the shadow of Popocatepeti ragged children beg coins to buy skulls made of chocolate...and the ugly pariah dogs roam the streets. Geoffrey Firmin, HM ex-consul, is drowning himself in liquor and Mescal, while his ex-wife and half brother look on powerless to help him. As the day wears on, it becomes apparent that Geoffrey must die. It is his only escape from a world he cannot understand. UNDER THE VOLCANO is one of the century's great undisputed masterpieces.

Since 1967, Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules has served the profession with highly developed content standards for cataloging the resources that come into your library. It is the one-stop gold standard. AACR2 walks you through the cataloging process with clearly defined rules and practical examples representing standards that apply to any type of resource and all metadata formats. The Joint Steering Committee has brought together a new Update reflecting changes and improvements in effect for 2005. What's new in the 2005 update? New and updated rules, including instructions, for capitalization of single letters used to represent words, and for multiple-letter prefixes in compound terms Changes arising from the preparation of the new edition of Cartographic Materials: A Manual of Interpretation for AACR2 A checklist of updates With 8.5 11 loose-leaf pages that fit a standard 3-ring binder, separately numbered chapters for easy integration of updates, and a design that clearly distinguishes the rules from the examples, AACR2 is the essential resource for descriptive and access cataloging. Libraries can rely on this international standard for flexible, ready-to-apply rules for the fundamental work of developing resource catalogs and bibliographic entries. With annual update releases that easily integrate into this streamlined format, AACR2 continues to be the authoritative choice for achieving consistency, clarity, and accessibility in cataloging resources across all media. The AACR2 2005 update packet can be acquired in one of 3 ways: as a stand alone addendum to a previously purchased AACR2 text block or kit; as an integrated component of the 2005 Text Block, which comprises the complete AACR2 text including annual updates from 2003 to 2005; or as part of the 2005 Kit, which consists of the complete AACR2 text, with all annual updates from 2003 to 2005, and a companion binder with divider tabs.

“We play heavy metal because our lives are heavy metal.” —Reda Zine, one of the founders of the Moroccan heavy-metal scene “Music is the weapon of the future.” —Fela Kuti An eighteen-year-old Moroccan who loves Black Sabbath. A twenty-two-year-old rapper from the Gaza Strip. A young Lebanese singer who quotes Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.” They are as representative of the world of Islam today as the conservatives and extremists we see every night on the news. Heavy metal, punk, hip-hop, and reggae are each the music of protest, and in many cases considered immoral in the Muslim world. This music may also turn out to be the soundtrack of a revolution unfolding across that world. Why, despite governmental attempts to control and censor them, do these musicians and fans keep playing and listening? Partly, of course, for the joy of self-expression, but also because, in this region, everything is political. In Heavy Metal Islam, Mark LeVine explores the influence of Western music on the Middle East through interviews with musicians and fans, introducing us young Muslims struggling to reconcile their religion with a passion for music and a desire for change. The result is a revealing tour of contemporary Islamic culture through the evolving music scene in the Middle East and Northern Africa. Heavy Metal Islam is a surprising, wildly entertaining foray into a historically authoritarian region where music just might be the true democratizing force. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Described as "by far the best book of its kind" (Henry McHenry, Evolution) and "the best introduction to the problems and data of modern palaeoanthropology yet published" (R. A. Foley, Antiquity), The Human Career has proved to be an indispensable tool in teaching human origins since its publication in 1989. This substantially revised edition retains Richard Klein's innovative approach and incorporates new findings from the past decade. The Human Career chronicles the evolution of people from the earliest primates through the emergence of fully modern humans within the past 200,000 years. Its comprehensive treatment stresses recent advances in knowledge, including, for example, ever more abundant evidence that fully modern humans originated in Africa and spread from there, replacing the Neanderthals in Europe and equally archaic people in Asia. With its coverage of both the fossil record and the archeological record over the 2.5 million years for which both are available, Klein emphasizes that human morphology and behavior evolved together. Throughout the text, Klein presents evidence for alternative points of view, but also does not hesitate to take a position. In addition to outlining the broad pattern of human evolution, The Human Career details the kinds of data that support this pattern, including information on archeological sites, artifacts, fossils, and methods for establishing dates in geological time. With abundant references and hundreds of illustrations, charts, and diagrams, this new edition is unparalleled in its usefulness for teaching human evolution.
