The Anti-Federalists, in Herbert J. Storing's view, are somewhat paradoxically entitled to be counted among the Founding Fathers and to share in the honor and study devoted to the founding. "If the foundations of the American polity was laid by the Federalists," he writes, "the Anti-Federalist reservations echo through American history; and it is in the dialogue, not merely in the Federalist victory, that the country's principles are to be discovered. " It was largely through their efforts, he reminds us, that the Constitution was so quickly amended to include a bill of rights. Storing here offers a brilliant introduction to the thought and principles of the Anti-Federalists as they were understood by themselves and by other men and women of their time. His comprehensive exposition restores to our understanding the Anti-Federalist share in the founding its effect on some of the enduring themes and tensions of American political life. The concern with big government and infringement of personal liberty one finds in the writings of these neglected Founders strikes a remarkably timely note.

A firsthand exploration of the fascinating world of "working dogs"--who seek out missing persons, sniff for explosives in war zones, and locate long-dead remains--through the experiences of a journalist and her canine companion, an incorrigible pup named Solo. Cat Warren is a tenured university professor and a journalist with what she acknowledges is an odd hobby: She and her dog have spent the last seven years searching for the dead. In What the Dog Knows, Warren recounts her adventure into the world of missing persons, and what she's learned about the capabilities of canines in the process. It all started as an effort to harness the wild energies of her German shepherd puppy, Solo, who had a fine nose but didn't play well with others. Before long, Warren and Solo were training with the police K9 unit in Durham, North Carolina, called out to sniff the parks, woodlands, and cul-de-sacs for bodies of the missing. Warren leads us onto trails of mystery that are sometimes solved, and often not. At investigator and handler trainings, "body farms," and crime scenes, she works and talks with forensic anthropologists, detectives, and dog handlers--learning why dogs are particularly well suited for this type of work, and how people are helping them get even better at the task. Along the way, she offers a fascinating exploration of canine intelligence and training, and she digs deep into scent research to unveil the amazing science behind a dog's ability to smell what humans can't even fathom. Combining the science-writing chops of Mary Roach with the visceral appeal of books like Inside of a Dog, Warren offers a unique perspective on special place that working dogs have in our society, and in our hearts and minds.
It's labeled "natural," "grass-fed," or "free-roaming;" yet it might be anything but. It's time to find out what you're actually eating... When your groceries are labeled "low-fat," "sugar-free," and even "natural" and "antibiotic-free," it's easy to assume that you're making healthy choices.

In What the Fork Are You Eating?, a practical guide written by certified chef and nutritionist Stefanie Sacks, MS, CNS, CDN, we learn exactly what the most offensive ingredients in our food are and how we can remove (or at least minimize) them in our diets. Sacks gives us an aisle-by-aisle rundown of how to shop for healthier items and create simple, nutritious, and delicious meals, including fifty original recipes.

There was something not quite on the up-and-up about her, but she came with a case he couldn't afford to refuse...and left him with a case of lust he hadn't had since high school. It didn't take long for him to fall for her, hook, line and sinker. But was Mae interested only in catching the double-crossing crooks who murdered her uncle...or did the lady want to catch him?

More than any other part of his ministry, Jesus' prayers inform and engage his intentions for how the gospel would change lives and affect the world. When we take time to review the moments when Jesus prayed with his disciples or went away to pray alone, we engage both a story and a set of lessons. Jesus doesn't just pray as a means to be with the Father; he uses prayer as an instructional. Discover Jesus' own hopes and desires when he prayed for us to Have a relationship with the Father Be shaped by God's wisdom and guidance Be united with one another Bring glory to God Have consistency in our spiritual life What the Prayers of Jesus Tell Us About the Heart of God refines our understanding of Jesus' plans for his disciples (both in that first century and for every century to follow). By witnessing even the most intimate moments between the Father and the Son, we can learn something about the big plan God has for our lives.
Sitting down to a daily family meal has long been a tradition for billions of people. But in every corner of the world this age-old custom is rapidly changing. From increased trade between countries to the expansion of global food corporations like Kraft and Nestle, current events are having a tremendous impact on our eating habits. Chances are your supermarket is stocking a variety of international foods, and American fast food chains like McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken are popping up all over the planet. For the first time in history, more people are overfed than underfed. And while some people still have barely enough to eat, others overeat to the point of illness. To find out how mealtime is changing in real homes, authors Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluisio visited families around the world to observe and photograph what they eat during the course of one week. They joined parents while they shopped at mega grocery stores and outdoor markets, and participated in a feast where a single goat was shared among many families. They watched moms making dinner in kitchens and over cooking fires, and they sat down to eat with twenty-five families in twenty-one countries--if you're keeping track, that's about 525 meals! The foods dished up ranged from hunted seal and spit-roasted guinea pig to U. N. -rationed grains and gallons of Coca-Cola. As Peter and Faith ate and talked with families, they learned firsthand about food consumption around the world and its corresponding causes and effects. The resulting family portraits offer a fascinating glimpse into the cultural similarities and differences served on dinner plates around the globe.

Could Confucius hit a curveball? Could Yoda block the plate? Can the Dalai Lama dig one out of the dirt? No, there is only one Zen master who could contemplate the circle of life while rounding the bases. Who is this guru lurking in the grand old game? Well, he's the winner of ten World Series rings, a member of both the Hall of Fame and the All-Century Team, and perhaps the most popular and beloved ballplayer of all time. And without effort or artifice he's waxed poetic on the mysteries of time ("It gets late awful early out there"), the meaning of community ("It's so crowded nobody goes there anymore"), and even the omnipresence of hope in the direst circumstances ("It ain't over 'til it's over"). It's Yogi Berra, of course, and in What Time Is It? You Mean Now? Yogi expounds on the funny, warm, borderline inadvertent insights that are his trademark. Twenty-six chapters, one for each letter, examine the words, the meaning, and the uplifting example of a kid from St. Louis who grew up to become the consummate Yankee and the ultimate Yogi.

Look at your to-do list. It's ridiculous. You can't get all that done. You're already at capacity. And it probably doesn't even list every single thing you need to do. The last thing you want to do is more. As a skeptical audience member once told author Laura Stack before a presentation, "I don't want to hear a productivity consultant telling me to do more with less. I want to do less and achieve more." This is exactly what Stack offers. You're never going to save time and increase efficiency by adding more to your bloated list. You need a system: a comprehensive approach that will enable you to organize your life around the tasks that really matter and let go of the ones that don't. Stack's innovative, step-by-step Productivity Workflow Formula allows you to spend less time and achieve greater results than you ever thought possible. By following her logical and intuitive process, you can wrestle your schedule into submission. Ultimately, you can recover as much as ninety minutes of your day (or even more) to use as you see fit. Stack shows how to separate the productive wheat from the nonproductive chaff--to home in on the high-value tasks, protect the time to do them, and focus on their execution. Throughout this book, you'll learn how to scale back; reduce, reduce, reduce is Stack's mantra. You'll find dozens of ways to shrink your to-do list, calendar commitments, distractions, interruptions, information overload, inefficiencies, and energy expenditures. Each reduction will increase your results and save you time. You know you can't work any harder--if you want to accomplish more, you have to work differently. Let Laura Stack show you how you can keep your sanity, advance your career, and spend more time with your family and friends.
