Make Way For Ducklings

by Robert Mccloskey

Just any old place won't do for raising a family of ducklings. Mr. Mallard thought the pond in the Boston Public Garden would be just right, especially with the swan boats bringing all those people, and all those peanuts. But Mrs. Mallard knew right away that the park was not a safe place for babies. A quiet island in the Charles River, however, proved just right for bringing up a new family-eight fluffy ducklings in all. And after her brood had learned to swim and dive, to walk in a line, and to come when called, Mrs. Mallard knew the time was right. They would all return to the Public Garden. But though the ducklings were old enough to look out for themselves, they couldn't fly. How to move them across the highway, down busy streets and intersections? Mrs. Mallard didn't make a fuss. She just set off at a proud waddle and the ducklings filed along behind her. The people of Boston would just have to make way! This brilliantly illustrated, amusingly observed tale of Mallards on the move has won the hearts of generations of readers. Awarded the Caldecott Medal as "the most distinguished American picture book for children" in 1941, it has since become a favorite of millions, children and adults alike, as "one of the merriest picture-books ever... told in very few words with a gravity that underscores the delightful comedy of the pictures." -The New York Times

Maker of Saints

by Thulani Davis

"Bird Kincaid can't sleep. She is plagued by nightmares - vivid images of Alex Decatur falling through the air. One month after she witnesses Alex, her closest friend, plunge eight stories to her death, Bird's grief has transformed into obsession." "In adjoining apartments on a boisterous, vibrant New York City block, the two young black women, Bird a radio engineer and onetime painter, and Alex a beautiful performance artist, had built an intense and unique friendship, their lives intertwined by shared space, history, friends and occasionally lovers, and a passion for art. Alex's death shatters the core of Bird's existence, compelling her to search for comfort and answers amidst the disparate strands of her friend's quixotic life - a life sometimes glamorous, sometimes painful, sometimes reckless. Was Alex's death really a suicide? Her lover, a white art critic, was never charged with a crime, but Bird is increasingly convinced that he murdered her friend." "Desperate for evidence, Bird locates a bizarre series of videotapes among Alex's belongings, in which she talks about her personal life, her work, and her turbulent relationship with her lover. At first reluctantly but soon fervidly watching the tapes, Bird discovers both startling secrets and blatant lies as she is drawn back into their carefree vagabond past and across mythic boundaries in the dangerous present. In the novel's intensely dramatic finale, Bird must confront her own long-hidden demons and test her powers as an artist and a survivor."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Makers

by Chris Anderson

What happens when DIY meets Web 2.0? In Makers, New York Times bestselling author Chris Anderson reveals how entrepreneurs use web principles to create and produce companies with the potential to be global in scope as well as how they use significantly less in the way of financial resources, tooling, and infrastructure required by traditional manufacturing. Anderson's unique perspective is that small manufacturing will be a significant source of future growth; that the days of giant companies like General Motors are in their twilight; that in an age of open source, custom-fabricated, and do-it-yourself product design, the collective potential of a million garage tinkerers will be unleashed on global markets.

Makeshift Metropolis: Ideas about Cities

by Witold Rybczynski

In this new work, prizewinning author, professor, and Slate architecture critic Witold Rybczynski returns to the territory he knows best: writing about the way people live, just as he did in the acclaimed bestsellers Home and A Clearing in the Distance. In Makeshift Metropolis, Rybczynski has drawn upon a lifetime of observing cities to craft a concise and insightful book that is at once an intellectual history and a masterful critique. Makeshift Metropolis describes how current ideas about urban planning evolved from the movements that defined the twentieth century, such as City Beautiful, the Garden City, and the seminal ideas of Frank Lloyd Wright and Jane Jacobs. If the twentieth century was the age of planning, we now find ourselves in the age of the market, Rybczynski argues, where entrepreneurial developers are shaping the twenty-first-century city with mixed-use developments, downtown living, heterogeneity, density, and liveliness. He introduces readers to projects like Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Yards in Washington, D.C., and, further afield, to the new city of Modi'in, Israel--sites that, in this age of resource scarcity, economic turmoil, and changing human demands, challenge our notion of the city. Erudite and immensely engaging, Makeshift Metropolis is an affirmation of Rybczynski's role as one of our most original thinkers on the way we live today.

The Makeshift Rocket

by Poul Anderson

A spaceship engineer held captive by would-be revolutionaries plots a daring escape in a rocket constructed of odds and ends and powered by beer in this hilarious romp from a master of golden-age speculative fiction The last thing the crew of the Mercury Girl expected to find on the terraformed worldlet known as Grendel was a band of Irish revolutionaries. As far as the ship's engineer, Knud Axel Syrup, is concerned, being taken prisoner by the more-than-slightly-nutty Shamrock League Irredentist Expeditionary Force could be a lot worse. At least there's plenty of cold brew available to keep him occupied . . . and more than a little tipsy. But these crazed Fenians are spoiling for a fight, and the last thing Syrup needs is to get caught in the middle of a war between the Shamrocks and their sworn rivals, the Anglians. Luckily Syrup has a plan. With the help of a somewhat-ditzy dancer named Emily and an alien in six-legged lederhosen, he intends to pull off a daring escape from the miniplanet in a spaceship constructed of pretzel boxes, old bicycle parts, and anything else he finds lying around, trusting their liftoff to the considerable propulsive power of beer. Multiple award winner Poul Anderson is one of science fiction's most respected maestros, and here he displays another side of his creative genius with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek. Hilarious, outrageous, and delightfully imaginative, The Makeshift Rocket is a wonderfully wild and wacky romp through a very different cosmos with one of the genre's best pilots at the controls.

You probably run, lift weights, or do yoga to keep your body in great shape; you put on sunscreen and lotions to protect your skin; but chances are you simply ignore your brain and trust it to do its job.

Brain dysfunction is the number one reason people fail at school, work, and relationships. The brain is the organ of learning, working, and loving--the supercomputer that runs our lives. It's very simple: when our brains work right, we work right--and when our brains have trouble, we have trouble in our lives. Luckily, it's never too late: the brain is capable of change, and when you care for it, the results are amazing. Making a Good Brain Great gives you the tools you need to optimize your brain power and enrich your health and your life in the process.

Making a Literary Life: Advice for Writers and Other Dreamers

by Carolyn See

As Carolyn See says, writing guides are like preachers on Sunday: "There may be a lot of them, but you can't have too many, and there's always an audience of the faithful." And while Making a Literary Life is ostensibly a book that teaches you how to write, it really teaches you how to make your interior life into your exterior life, how to find and join that community of like-minded souls you're sure is out there somewhere. Carolyn See distills a lifetime of experience as novelist, memoirist, critic, and creative-writing professor into this marvelously engaging how-to book. Partly the nuts and bolts of writing (plot, point of view, character, voice) and partly an inspirational guide to living the life you dream of, Making a Literary Life takes you from the decision to become a writer to three months after the publication of your first book. A combination of writing and life strategies (e.g., do not tell everyone around you how you yearn to be a writer; send a charming note to someone you admire in the industry five days a week, every week, for the rest of your life; find the perfect characters right in front of you), Making a Literary Life is for people not usually considered part of the literary loop: the non East Coasters, the secret scribblers. With sagacity, a magical sense of humor, and an abiding belief in the possibilities offered to ordinary people living ordinary lives, Carolyn See has summed up her life's work in a book so beguiling, irreverent, and giddily inspiring that you won't even realize it's changing your life until it already has.

Making All Things New: An invitation To Spiritual Life

by Henri Nouwen

Nouwen writes: During the past few years, various friends have asked me, "What do you mean when you speak about the spiritual life?" Every time this question has come up, I have wished I had a small and simple book which could offer the beginning of a response. Although there are many excellent books about the spiritual life, I still felt that there was a place for a text which could be read within a few hours and could not only explain what the spiritual life is but also create a desire to live it. This feeling caused me to write this book. Many of the ideas have been expressed before by others as well as by myself, but I hope and pray that the way they are brought together here will be of help to those who feel "filled but unfulfilled." Other books by Nouwen are available from Bookshare.

The Making and Unmaking of Whiteness

by Eric Klinenberg Birgit Brander Rasmussen Irene J. Nexica Matt Wray

Bringing together new articles and essays from the controversial Berkeley conference of the same name, The Making and Unmaking of Whiteness presents a fascinating range of inquiry into the nature of whiteness. Representing academics, independent scholars, community organizers, and antiracist activists, the contributors are all leaders in the "second wave" of whiteness studies who collectively aim to combat the historical legacies of white supremacy and to inform those who seek to understand the changing nature of white identity, both in the United States and abroad. With essays devoted to theories of racial domination, comparative global racisms, and transnational white identity, the geographical reach of the volume is significant and broad. Dalton Conley writes on "How I Learned to Be White. " Allan Brub discusses the intersection of gay identity and whiteness, and Mab Segrest describes the spiritual price white people pay for living in a system of white supremacy. Other pieces examine the utility of whiteness as a critical term for social analysis and contextualize different attempts at antiracist activism. In a razor-sharp introduction, the editors not only raise provocative questions about the intellectual, social, and political goals of those interested in the study of whiteness but assess several of the topic's major recurrent themes: the visibility of whiteness (or the lack thereof); the "emptiness" of whiteness as a category of identification; and conceptions of whiteness as a structural privilege, a harbinger of violence, or an institutionalization of European imperialism. Contributors. William Aal, Allan Brub, Birgit Brander Rasmussen, Dalton Conley, Troy Duster, Ruth Frankenberg, John Hartigan Jr. , Eric Klinenberg, Eric Lott, Irene J. Nexica, Michael Omi, Jasbir Kaur Puar, Mab Segrest, Vron Ware, Howard Winant, Matt Wray

Making Beats

by Jeff Chang Joseph G. Schloss

Based on ten years of research among hip-hop producers, Making Beats was the first work of scholarship to explore the goals, methods, and values of a surprisingly insular community. Focusing on a variety of subjects--from hip-hop artists' pedagogical methods to the Afrodiasporic roots of the sampling process to the social significance of "digging" for rare records--Joseph G. Schloss examines the way hip-hop artists have managed to create a form of expression that reflects their creative aspirations, moral beliefs, political values, and cultural realities. This second edition of the book includes a new foreword by Jeff Chang and a new afterword by the author.
