With 400 full-color photos, as well as numerous charts and diagrams, it begins with the rules and the fundamentals of bidding, play, defense, and scoring.

Photographs of actual game boards, often paired with a diagram, represent the perspective of the player looking at the pieces. The book clearly explains the rules of play and movement of pieces, and then gradually introduces various tactics and strategies.

A Northrop Frye Chrestomathy

This chrestomathy is a selection of passages from the previously unpublished writings of Northrop Frye, much of it coming from his notebooks and diaries, which are now a part of his Collected Works (1996–2012). The passages, arranged alphabetically, form a discontinuous series of reflections on diverse topics that are worthy of extracting from their original source. The passages gathered here are aphoristic, insightful, clever, startling, amusing, contrarian, curious, powerful, salty, irreverent, unguarded, or otherwise noteworthy in the way they reveal Frye’s fertile mind at work. Frye is Canada’s greatest literary critic, and a good argument can be made that he is the greatest critical presence internationally of the last century. This book showcases the seeds of the ideas he often developed in his books and essays. The passages range widely across Frye’s sixty-year writing career, extending from the early 1930s until just before his death in 1991.

Review: "Over 10 years in the making, American National Biography is a fascinating study of the people who have shaped the United States. Why replace the Dictionary of American Biography instead of merely updating it through supplements? Because the editors include new scholarship and people who were missed in the original, especially women and ethnic minorities. Numbering 24 volumes and containing 17,500 entries, the work offers readable, informative, and critical biographies for each subject, the location of their papers (if they exist), and selective bibliographies. Excellent indexes--subject, contributor, place of birth, and occupation--enhance use. This is an outstanding set that will be heavily consulted for many years to come."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.

1997: Hong Kong, China. No longer a prize of British colonialism, Hong Kong will enter a new realm of history as China reclaims what she sees as her most wayward child. No one knows what this change will bring. Will this become a new era of peace and prosperity for the city, uniting the people with a common goal and vision, all working for the glory of China? Or will this mean the destruction of Hong Kong's way of life, a withdrawal of all the liberties enjoyed by the island's residents by a mainland government that views all trade as state secrets and the press as an enemy of the People's Republic? Change can bring joy--but more often it brings fear. Among the varied individuals confronting this historic change: Brandon Poole: One of Hong Kong's richest industrialists, he is a British aristocrat whose family helped colonize the city and whose love for it will keep him there...perhaps long past the time of safety. Lacy Lock: A New York investment banker who comes to Hong Kong to make her mark and winds up with much more than she ever bargained for. Cloud Van Hooten: A Dutch businessman hungry for success, whose dreams have drawn him to this city and whose love for one woman may doom them both. Moia Hsu: A beautiful Chinese intellectual with ties to Beijing, whose love for Van Hooten and her country are tearing her apart. These four people--and all the teeming masses of this wondrous place--will face the destiny of Hong Kong together. And the question all will seek the answer to is...Will the dragon destroy it's most precious treasure?
