Smoke and Mirrors shows how quitting smoking can be an opportunity for spiritual and personal growth. It is not a health book, there are enough of those, nor a book filled with techniques. Rather, it invites the reader to see his or her habit in a nonjudgmental mirror, and to transcend it. The playful tone and drawings make it a pleasant read.

From the sixteenth to early-nineteenth century, four times more Africans than Europeans crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. While this forced migration stripped slaves of their liberty, it failed to destroy many of their cultural practices, which came with Africans to the New World. In Working the Diaspora, Frederick Knight examines work cultures on both sides of the Atlantic, from West and West Central Africa to British North America and the Caribbean. Knight demonstrates that the knowledge that Africans carried across the Atlantic shaped Anglo-American agricultural development and made particularly important contributions to cotton, indigo, tobacco, and staple food cultivation. The book also compellingly argues that the work experience of slaves shaped their views of the natural world. Broad in scope, clearly written, and at the center of current scholarly debates, Working the Diaspora challenges readers to alter their conceptual frameworks about Africans by looking at them as workers who, through the course of the Atlantic slave trade and plantation labor, shaped the development of the Americas in significant ways.

Cass expected to find a ruthless criminal; instead she found a darkly magnetic man whose bone-melting intensity blurred the line between her duty and her own desires. Derek Mansfield had returned to Chicago to settle a score, not to become entangled in a seductive game of cat and mouse with the intriguing Cass.

A hypnotist counts us collectively back to 2000 - where it all began. "We were mesmerized, hypnotized and bamboozled." It was all a deceptive show, performed through the tricks of Smoke & Mirrors. Mr Paine, hypnotist, social philosopher and activist, uses cutting edge investigations - and a sharp pin - to pop the fantasy bubble/babble that fooled a nation into believing that the candidate who came in second, won the race. Look past the barrage of Bushspeak, sound bites, slanted news and spin-meisters and see HOW it was done. "Wake up from the trance: we were, as a people and a nation, hood-winked into surrendering the highest office in the land." The crime, treason, points to what we need to do now - what we should have done years ago. The solution is clear: We need to overcome our timidity, uncertainty and fear, and stand up for the right thing; namely, getting our country back. We do not have to sleep walk, nor goose step, any more. We can end this Now.

Realism is an enlightening story, a tale which enriches our experience and makes it more intelligible. Yet this wonderful picture of humanity's best efforts at knowledge has been badly bruised by numerous critics. James Robert Brown in Smoke and Mirrors fights back against figures such as Richard Rorty, Bruno Latour, Michael Ruse and Hilary Putnam who have attacked realist accounts of science. But this volume is not wholly devoted to combating Rorty and others who blow smoke in our eyes; the second half is concerned with arguing that there are some amazing ways in which science mirrors the world. The role of abstraction, abstract objects and a priori ways of getting at reality are all explored in showing how science reflects reality. Smoke and Mirrors is a defence of science and knowledge in general as well as a defence of a particular way of understanding science. It is of interest to all those who wish or need to know how science works.
