Rory The Dinosaur Needs a Christmas Tree

By Liz Climo

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

In the third book in the Rory the Dinosaur series, Rory brings the Christmas spirit to his friends and family, adding a holiday hook to the popular (and adorable) dinosaur's adventures.

When Rory the Dinosaur starts to get excited for Christmas, he notices that his island home doesn't exactly have the best trees around for a festive holiday feel. So he and his dad set out to decorate their home the best way they can--but without the perfect tree Rory is worried that Christmas will be ruined! Can Rory and his friends save the spirit of the season?

Comic artist Liz Climo looks at the true meaning of the holidays--spending time with friends and having the love and support of your family--even in a place without any snow or evergreens to speak of.

Politics In Chile, Third Edition

Lois Hecht Oppenheim
Authors:
Lois Hecht Oppenheim

The third edition of Politics in Chile provides significantly updated coverage of Chilean politics and economic development from the return to civilian rule in 1990 to the 2006 election and early administration of Socialist Michelle Bachelet, Chile's first woman president. Lois Hecht Oppenheim focuses on recent efforts to reconstruct democratic practices and institutions, including resolving such sensitive and lingering issues as human-rights violations under Pinochet and civil-military relations. Chapters on the contemporary politics and economics under the civilian Concertación governments are largely rewritten for this edition. Rather than focusing on the search for development," the third edition considers in greater depth the exceptionalism" of the Chilean economic experiment through successive stages of stability, socialism, and neoliberalism.

Sultry Climates

Ian Littlewood
Authors:
Ian Littlewood

Here, said the reviewer for Salon.com, is a book that is "lively and accessible and erudite...the perfect companion for anyone who wouldn't be caught dead with an airport paperback-though I wouldn't want to wager which one provides more juice." Historically, the sexual motives of travel have rarely been spelled out in travel guides and brochures. Sultry Climates is an alternative history of tourism, made up of precisely the details that usually go unmentioned. As Ian Littlewood demonstrates with dazzling elegance and wit, if we want to make sense of the celebrated "Grand Tour" of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, for example, it's as important to take account of travellers' visits to Dresden streetwalkers and Venetian courtesans as it is to reckon with their visits to the Dresden picture gallery and the Doge's Palace. From Byron in Greece to Isherwood in Germany, from American expatriates on the Left Bank to Orton in Morocco and right up to the present day, what emerges from these experiences is a continuing motif of tourism, previously neglected or ignored-"a breathless book, a Grand Tour in and of itself" (Los Angeles Times).

Basic Freud

Michael Kahn
Authors:
Michael Kahn

In Basic Freud, noted psychologist Michael Kahn shows that even in the age of psychopharmaceuticals and cognitive therapy, Freud's major insights into the unconscious remain unsurpassed tools for understanding our behaviours, motivations, and emotions. Kahn presents key ideas such as the Oedipus complex, the repetition compulsion, guilt, anxiety, and defence mechanisms, along with recent research that has supported or expanded Freud's findings. Kahn also presents real case studies from his own work as a psychotherapist to show how Freudian thought has been instrumental in helping his clients discover who they are and escape from destructive patterns. Lay readers and professional psychotherapists alike will benefit from Kahn's fresh, informed, and unpretentious approach.

It has been decades since women of colour first turned feminism upside down, exposing the'70s feminist movement as exclusive, white, and unaware of the concerns and issues of women of colour from around the globe. Now a new generation of brilliant, outspoken women of colour is speaking to the concerns of a new feminism, and to their place in it. Daisy Hernandez of Ms. magazine and poet Bushra Rehman have collected a diverse, lively group of emerging writers who speak to their experience,to the strength and rigidity of community and religion, to borders and divisions, both internal and external,and address issues that take feminism into the twenty-first century. One writer describes herself as a mixed brown girl, Sri-Lankan and New England mill-town white trash," and clearly delineates the organizing differences between whites and women of colour: We do not kick ass the way the white girls do, in meetings of NOW or riot grrl. For us, it's all about family." A Korean-American woman struggles to create her own identity in a traditional community: Yam-ja-neh means nice, sweet, compliant. I've heard it used many times by my parents' friends who don't know shit about me." An Arab-American feminist deconstructs the quaint vision" of Middle-Eastern women with which most Americans feel comfortable. This impressive array of first-person accounts adds a much-needed fresh dimension to the ongoing dialogue between race and gender, and gives voice to the women who are creating and shaping the feminism of the future.

Sunlight at Midnight

Bruce Lincoln
Authors:
Bruce Lincoln

For Russians, St.Petersburg has embodied power, heroism and fortitude. It has encompassed all the things that the Russians are and that they hope to become. Opulence and artistic brilliance blend with images of suffering on a monumental scale to make up the historic persona the late W. Bruce Lincoln's lavish biography of this mysterious, complex city. Climate and comfort were not what Tsar Peter the Great had in mind when he decided to build a new capital in the muddy marshes of the Neva River delta. Located 500 miles below the Arctic Circle, this area, with its foul weather, bad water and sodden soil, was so unattractive that only a handful of Finnish fisherman had ever settled there. Yet to the Tsar the place he named Sankt Pieter Burkh had the makings of a paradise. His vision was soon borne out: though St. Petersburg was closer to London, Paris and Vienna than to Russian's far-off eastern lands, it quickly became the political, cultural and economic centre of an empire that stretched across more than a dozen time zones and over three continents.In this book, revolutionaries and labourers brush shoulders with tsars and builders, soldiers and statesmen share pride of place with poets. For only the entire historical experience of this magnificent and mysterious city can reveal the wealth of human and natural forces that shaped the modern history of the city and the nation it represents.
