The body of a young woman is found in a dump in American Samoa. Then the prime suspect in her death is found half-eaten by sharks. Natural justice? Native justice? Or something else entirely? Lieutenant Han, a Korean-American homicide detective on loan to this remote South Pacific island nation, is also its only trained investigator. Born in one culture, raised in another, married into a third and now working in a fourth, Han takes nothing for granted about why people kill each other. Even so, these two deaths make no sense. Meanwhile, Han's estranged Japanese wife is back in Samoa, apparently more interested in an American ecologist than her husband, and the woman doctor Han fell for in his wife's absence seems to be falling for the hospital's new pathologist, a long-distance ocean sailor from South Africa with some unique experience in third-world killing fields. As the answers to Han's questions emerge from the cultural chaos like the ghosts that haunt Samoan forests, he discovers that the last blind spot is his own. And it may kill him.

The year 2009 marks the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s publication On the Origin of Species. The author became interested in the topic of the debate between creation and the theory of evolution many years ago and has read and studied about it over the years. She presents her reasons for coming down on the side of a literal reading of the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis in the Bible and attempts to show that this is a crucial issue for our time.

A Bird in the Hand is the first novel featuring George and Molly Palmer-Jones by Ann Cleeves, author of the Shetland and Vera Stanhope crime series. In England's birdwatching paradise, a new breed has been sighted – a murderer . . . Young Tom French was found dead, lying in a marsh on the Norfolk coast, with his head bashed in and his binoculars still around his neck. One of the best birders in England, Tom had put the village of Rushy on the birdwatching map. Everyone liked him. Or did they? George Palmer-Jones, an elderly birdwatcher who decided quietly to look into the brutal crime, discovered mixed feelings aplenty. Still, he remained baffled by a deed that could have been motivated by thwarted love, pure envy, or something else altogether. But as he and his fellow "twitchers" flocked from Norfolk to Scotland to the Scilly Isles, in response to rumours of rare sightings, George – with help from his lovely wife, Molly – gradually discerned the true markings of a killer. All he had to do was prove it . . . before the murderer strikes again.

At its core, A Bird in the Hand is indeed about trophies, though not those ranked by size or numbers or scores, but, rather, the lasting trophies of the mind and heart. In his lyrical trademark style, Lundrigan shares vivid images and compelling thoughts over a range of personal experiences from his beloved Minnesota grouse coverts to the red-dust quail country of western Oklahoma, from big-water duck gunning to sharp-tailed grouse hunts on the prairies of North Dakota. Ted weaves the fabric of his multifaceted tales in a manner that effortlessly involves you with the places and people and gun dogs that are the warp and woof of this hunts.

Rational Choice Theory is flourishing in sociology and is increasingly influential in other disciplines. Contributors to this volume are convinced that it provides an inadequate conceptualization of all aspects of decision making: of the individuals who make the decisions, of the process by which decisions get made and of the context within which decisions get made. The ciritique focuses on the four assumptions which are the bedrock of rational choice: rationality: the theory's definition of rationality is incomplete, and cannot satisfactorily incorporate norms and emotions individualism: rational choice is based upon atomistic, individual decision makers and cannot account for decisions made by ;couples', 'groups' or other forms of collective action process: the assumption of fixed, well-ordered preferences and 'perfect information' makes the theory inadequate for situations of change and uncertainty aggregation: as methodological individualists, rational choice theorists can only view structure and culture as aggregates and cannot incorporate structural or cultural influences as emergent properties which have an effect upon decision making. The critique is grounded in discussion of a wide range of social issues, including race, marriage, health and education.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The instant classic about why some ideas thrive, why others die, and how to improve your idea’s chances—essential reading in the “fake news” era. Mark Twain once observed, “A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on.” His observation rings true: Urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus news stories circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas—entrepreneurs, teachers, politicians, and journalists—struggle to make them “stick.” In Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that stick and explain ways to make ideas stickier, such as applying the human scale principle, using the Velcro Theory of Memory, and creating curiosity gaps. Along the way, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds—from the infamous “kidney theft ring” hoax to a coach’s lessons on sportsmanship to a vision for a new product at Sony—draw their power from the same six traits. Made to Stick will transform the way you communicate. It’s a fast-paced tour of success stories (and failures): the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who drank a glass of bacteria to prove a point about stomach ulcers; the charities who make use of the Mother Teresa Effect; the elementary-school teacher whose simulation actually prevented racial prejudice. Provocative, eye-opening, and often surprisingly funny, Made to Stick shows us the vital principles of winning ideas—and tells us how we can apply these rules to making our own messages stick. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Chip Heath and Dan Heath's Switch.
