Maia Wojciechowska's 1965 Newbery Medal winner about a young boy struggling with his father's legacy. Manolo was only three when his father, the great bullfighter Juan Olivar, died. But Juan is never far from Manolo's consciousness--how could he be, with the entire town of Arcangel waiting for the day Manolo will fulfill his father's legacy? But Manolo has a secret he dares to share with no one--he is a coward, without afición, the love of the sport that enables a bullfighter to rise above his fear and face a raging bull. As the day when he must enter the ring approaches, Manolo finds himself questioning which requires more courage: to follow in his father's legendary footsteps or to pursue his own destiny?

The first comprehensive and authentic account of early Cape photography, this work is the result of an intensive research project based on primary sources of references only. The need to establish an accurate record of the evolution of early photography in the Cape has long been felt. While the authors' researches among the early Cape newspapers revealed for the first time a tremendous amount of information covering many aspects of Cape photography, additional and supplementary information was sought and obtained from sources hitherto untapped, resulting in a well documented work of great cultural and historical importance. The work includes biographies of pioneer photographers, chapters about the complementary partnership between photographers and artists, photographic exhibitions, photography at the Diamond Fields, photographs for sale and identification and dating of early Cape photographs -- page 4 of cover.

Ierii, the daughter of the chief gardener at the palace, is in love with Thyloss, the son of the keeper of the Queen's bulls. Thyloss, who is looking forward to a future as a bull acrobat - a position of great importance - finds his feelings for Ierii gradually changing. But their hopes are shaken by events beyond their control. The Minoan civilization, one of the greatest the world has known, suddenly and mysteriously came to an end sometime during the period 1600-1450BC, baffling present day historians and archaeologists alike. One of the most persistent theories is that it was fatally damaged by the immense volcanic eruption on the nearby island of Thera (Santorini). This story charts the dramatic events during the last days of Ma-ii, a city on the north coast of Crete.

Zoey is finally home where she belongs, safe with her Guardian Warrior, Stark, by her side, and preparing to face off against Neferet – which would be a whole lot easier if the High Counsel saw the ex-High Priestess for what she really is. Kalona has released his hold on Rephaim, and, through Nyx's gift of a human form, Rephaim and Stevie Rae are finally able to be together – if he can truly walk the path of the Goddess and stay free of his father's shadow... But there are new forces at work at the House of Night. An influx of humans, including Lenobia's handsome horse whisperer, threatens their precarious stability. And then there's the mysterious Aurox, a jaw-droppingly gorgeous teen boy who is actually more – or possibly less – than human. Only Neferet knows he was created to be her greatest weapon. But Zoey can sense the part of his soul that remains human, the compassion that wars with his Dark calling. And there's something strangely familiar about him... Will Neferet's true nature be revealed before she succeeds in silencing them all? And will Zoey be able to touch Aurox's humanity in time to protect him – and everyone – from his own fate? Find out what's destined in the next thrilling chapter of the House of Night series.

Approaching his thirtieth birthday, Vergil Tynan closely identifies with Sisyphus, doomed to eternally push a boulder up a mountain, only to begin anew when he reaches the top. Sisyphus's plight seems to sum up his own existence as a low-level employee at a large insurance company. Vergil's only comforts--sex with wild, electrifying Regina and scuba diving with his buddy Nick--aren't enough to relieve his growing angst, which he nourishes with compulsive readings of Albert Camus' "The Myth of Sisyphus," When Regina announces that she is pregnant, further discord follows as the couple argues about the baby's religious upbringing. The intractable positions taken by Regina (Jewish) and Vergil (Catholic) strain an already volatile relationship. Through it all, Vergil is haunted by the question posed by Camus: "Does The Absurd dictate death?"

The politics of business have become the business of politics. Across the world the lesson is clear: just as too much governmental interference leads to dysfunctional economies, left to its own devices the market is incapable of adequate self-regulation. The corporate malfeasance crisis in the United States has transformed global perceptions about the efficacy of regulatory structures in combating corrupt practices in private and public sectors. The design of effective corporate governance structures depends not just on internal factors but also on the inter-relationship between various actors that constitute wider governance: politicians, lobbyists, corporations and regulators. A Corrupted State: Wall Street on Trial breaks new ground by deconstructing the systemic flaws inherent in the model itself. It reveals that the 'rotten apple' theory, positing the problems in corporate America as merely the result of deviancy by an individual or a single firm, is an intellectual deceit not supported by the facts.
