For the animals of the Captain's company, survival has meant keeping a low profile, building a new life, and trying to forget the war they lost. But now the Captain's whiskers are twitching at the idea of evening the score.PRAISE FOR THE BUILDERS"A living, breathing world of vivid, winsome characters hellbent on their blaze of glory and as unforgiving as a runaway train carrying all your friends over a cliff. I haven't cared about animals this much since Watership Down." -- Delilah S. Dawson, author of Hit and Wicked as They Come"Nobody does dark like Polansky. The Builders is Redwall meets Unforgiven, combining the endearing wit of Disney's Robin Hood with all the grit and violence of a spaghetti western." -- Myke Cole, author of the Shadow Ops series"If Sam Peckinpah and Brian Jacques had a strange peyote ritual and shared a collective dream, it might look something liek this.

Widening Income Inequality

by Frederick Seidel

Frederick Seidel has been called many things. A "transgressive adventurer," "a demonic gentleman," "a "triumphant outsider," "a great poet of innocence," and "an example of the dangerous Male of the Species," just to name a few. Whatever you choose to call him, one thing is certain, "he radiates heat" (The New Yorker).Now add to that: the poet of aging and decrepitude.Widening Income Inequality, Seidel's new poetry collection, is a rhymed magnificence of sexual, historical and cultural exuberance, a sweet and bitter fever of Robespierre and Obamacare and Apollinaire, of John F. Kennedy and jihadi terror and New York City and Italian motorcycles. Rarely has poetry been this true, this dapper, or this dire. Frederick Seidel is "the most poetic of the poets and their leader into hell."

Airport Urbanism: Infrastructure and Mobility in Asia

by Max Hirsh

Thirty years ago, few residents of Asian cities had ever been on a plane, much less outside their home countries. Today, flying, and flying abroad, is commonplace. How has this leap in cross-border mobility affected the design and use of such cities? And how is it accelerating broader socioeconomic and political changes in Asian societies? In Airport Urbanism, Max Hirsh undertakes an unprecedented study of airport infrastructure in five Asian cities--Bangkok, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. Through this lens he examines the exponential increase in international air traffic and its implications for the planning and design of the contemporary city. By investigating the low-cost, informal, and transborder transport systems used by new members of the flying public--such as migrant workers, retirees, and Asia's emerging middle class--he uncovers an architecture of incipient global mobility that has been inconspicuously inserted into places not typically associated with the infrastructure of international air travel. Drawing on material gathered in restricted zones of airports and border control facilities, Hirsh provides a fascinating, up-close view of the mechanics of cross-border mobility. Moreover, his personal experience of growing up and living on three continents inflects his analyses with unique insight into the practicalities of international migration and into the mindset of people on the move.
