No book before this one has rendered the story of cigarettes -- mankind's most common self-destructive instrument and its most profitable consumer product -- with such sweep and enlivening detail. Here for the first time, in a story full of the complexities and contradictions of human nature, all the strands of the historical process -- financial, social, psychological, medical, political, and legal -- are woven together in a riveting narrative. The key characters are the top corporate executives, public health investigators, and antismoking activists who have clashed ever more stridently as Americans debate whether smoking should be closely regulated as a major health menace. We see tobacco spread rapidly from its aboriginal sources in the New World 500 years ago, as it becomes increasingly viewed by some as sinful and some as alluring, and by government as a windfall source of tax revenue. With the arrival of the cigarette in the late-nineteenth century, smoking changes from a luxury and occasional pastime to an everyday -- to some, indispensable -- habit, aided markedly by the exuberance of the tobacco huskers. This free-enterprise success saga grows shadowed, from the middle of this century, as science begins to understand the cigarette's toxicity. Ironically the more detailed and persuasive the findings by medical investigators, the more cigarette makers prosper by seeming to modify their product with filters and reduced dosages of tar and nicotine. We see the tobacco manufacturers come under intensifying assault as a rogue industry for knowingly and callously plying their hazardous wares while insisting that the health charges against them (a) remain unproven, and (b) are universally understood, so smokers indulge at their own risk. Among the eye-opening disclosures here: outrageous pseudo-scientific claims made for cigarettes throughout the '30s and '40s, and the story of how the tobacco industry and the National Cancer Institute spent millions to develop a "safer" cigarette that was never brought to market. Dealing with an emotional subject that has generated more heat than light, this book is a dispassionate tour de force that examines the nature of the companies' culpability, the complicity of society as a whole, and the shaky moral ground claimed by smokers who are now demanding recompense From the Trade Paperback edition.

The first book in the Kovac and Liska series, one of the most engaging detective duos in crime thrillers. In ASHES TO ASHES they join FBI agent Kate Conlan as she tracks a serial killer known as The Cremator. A killer performs a bizarre ceremony in a wooded Minneapolis park, setting the bodies ablaze. He has already claimed three lives, and he won't stop there. Only this time there is a witness. But she isn't talking. Kate Conlan - former FBI agent - is assigned to the case. Her superiors are on the case as the latest victim may be the daughter of Peter Bondurant, an enigmatic billionaire. When Peter pulls strings, Special Agent John Quinn gets assigned to the case. But the FBI's ace profiler of serial killers is the last person Kate wants to work with, not with their troubled history. Now she faces the most difficult role of her career-and her life. For she's the only woman who has what it takes to stop the killer . . . and the one woman he wants next. Watch out for the next title in the Kovac and Liska crime thriller series The death of internal affairs investigator Andy Paxton is a potential political bomb for the Minneapolis Police Department. Paxton was investigating a possible cop connection in the brutal murder of another officer. The pressure is on from the top brass to close the case as soon as possible but Sam Kovac is not convinced the case is as straightforward as it appears. As he digs deeper, it is looking very much like Paxton discovered something that got him killed. DUST TO DUST is the next gripping thriller in the series.

Future historians will wonder why, despite the risks, society persisted in its warm relationship with the cigarette; by the end of the century global consumption was still rising. The 1995 symposium at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine not only examined tobacco's connection with health, but the varied attitudes towards smoking, which have included regarding it as 'manly', relaxing, fashionable - and decadent. A particular feature was a witness seminar attended not only by those who had made the initial discovery but by those with a crucial role in promoting public awareness of the dangers. And, as shown in this book, we still cannot escape the paradox that, while a considerable proportion of a country's population is hooked on the cigarette, the tobacco industry and the government are equally addicted to the profits and tax revenues it generates.

Public interest in the recent Ashes test series served to heighten the anger about the removal of Test cricket from free-to-air television. This report looks at the contract between the ECB and Sky; the statutory framework behind the listing of sporting events; the reasons for excluding test cricket from the A list; and the gentleman's agreement, that had existed, that a substantial proportion of Test cricket would be maintained on free-to-air channels. Although the Committee supports the idea of free-to-air broadcasting they do not recommend re-listing in Group A. They recognise that the ECB is best qualified to judge the long-term interests of the game but that they must also balance the public interest.

They say you don't get to choose your family; for Ashton Firebrand, the adopted son of a dragon, this is particularly true. Still, he finds a way to make it work. When Ashton learns of an assassination plot targeting his dragon father, he launches an investigation that reveals a lot more than he bargained for-including some interesting details about his own origins. One detail is the nature of his relationship with a magical barmaid named Abigail, who is promptly kidnapped by nefarious aurators, or mage hunters. Now, Ashton must travel to another continent to confront the aurators and save Abigail before their evil plan comes to fruition. Along the way, Ashton meets a witch, a half-elf sorcerer, an animated teddy bear, and other magical figures who agree to help him take down the aurators. Filled with humor and intrigue, Ash to Ashes is an enchanting adventure that explores the meaning of family in a very unfamiliar locale.
