This book presents a harmonized approach to three major martial arts namely, karate, jiu-jitsu, and judo. The first part deals with the philosophical aspect of life and looks at how balance should be achieved between opposites such as soft and hard, hot and cold, violence and non-violence, masculine and feminine, etc. (yin-yang) which are found in nature, rather than adopting the modern tendency which is to try to favour only one side of the equation to the detriment of the other. It illustrates how martial arts can help us develop ""mastery"" of these so-called opposites so as to live in harmony with our spiritual being instead of ignoring it and favouring the development of the ego, source of all our misery. The second part of the book covers the basic technical aspect of gross and fine motor skills and is addressed to advanced practitioners. It stresses the need to keep an open mind with reference to cultures and provides an extensive glossary (Japanese, English, and French).

FORTUNE COOKIE Never judge a book by its cover… Editor Arianna Hamilton knew that saying well. What surprised her was that the fortune cookie message clearly had a double meaning…. Take the manuscript Mr. X had furtively passed to her…before he disappeared. Too many people were interested in getting their hands on it—at any price. Fortunately ex-fiancé Mark Lindsay showed up to rescue her and the book. Even stranger, he knew all about subterfuge and weaponry. In fact, Mark had a real edge…sexy, dangerous, seductive. What had happened to the nice banker she'd left at the altar because he was, well, boring…? The fortune cookies at Madame Wu's Destiny House are special: their predictions come true!

The gripping, untold story of The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and how the perpetrators of Balkan war crimes were captured by the most successful manhunt in history Written with a thrilling narrative pull, The Butcher’s Trail chronicles the pursuit and capture of the Balkan war criminals indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague. Borger recounts how Radovan Karadžić and Ratko Mladić—both now on trial in The Hague—were finally tracked down, and describes the intrigue behind the arrest of Slobodan Milosevic, the Yugoslav president who became the first head of state to stand before an international tribunal for crimes perpetrated in a time of war. Based on interviews with former special forces soldiers, intelligence officials, and investigators from a dozen countries—most speaking about their involvement for the first time—this book reconstructs a fourteen-year manhunt carried out almost entirely in secret. Indicting the worst war criminals that Europe had known since the Nazi era, the ICTY ultimately accounted for all 161 suspects on its wanted list, a feat never before achieved in political and military history.

In his controversial 1998 book Fiber, Rick Bass introduced a troubling dilemma of the literary artist and activist: How can any nature writer engage in celebration of the natural world in the face of environmental degradation? Perhaps, Bass speculated, the "activist is the artist's ashes," the identity that emerges finally from charred remains of a "pure" devotion to the art of nature writing. In The Literary Art and Activism of Rick Bass, the first comprehensive collection of literary criticism to address Bass's work, fifteen scholars elucidate the development of social, political, and personal issues in Bass’s fiction and nonfiction.

The Fall of the Governor Part One by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga is the third novel in the New York Times bestselling series based on the award-winning comic books and blockbuster television show. Über-villain Phillip Blake has come a long way. He journeyed from humble beginnings into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse. And here, he has manoeuvred to become a small town's self-proclaimed leader. But Woodbury's residents (those who survive) will live to regret the day Blake, aka the Governor, darkened their doors. For the Governor runs a twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever-tightening barricades. Those that manage to breach those barricades find only misery within, and the terror of the zombie menace without. The Governor's complex story continues in a tour de force of action and horror. Iconic characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne, and Glenn, make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of 'The Walking Dead' will see these characters in a whole new light.
