Manning Up

by Kay S. Hymowitz

Hymowitz, author of Marriage and Caste in America: Separate and Unequal Families in a Post-Marital Age, examines the radical changes in male courting habits over the last 50 years. He asserts that in an economic and social landscape where the traditional male role has been made unnecessary and even, in many ways, undesirable, a new stage of male development has emerged. These man-children live out their 20's and 30's with fierce anti-domestic tendencies, thus presenting courtship difficulties for their female peers. Hymowitz attempts here to explain this change and what it means for the future of family life and society as a whole. This book will appeal to those with an interest in sociology and modern culture.

Aspiring actress Jennifer Crane knows all about games -- the games girls play to get a guy; the games actresses play to land a part; and the good old game of credit-card roulette. (How else is a girl supposed to afford her shoes?) But she never expected to be playing a game with life-or-death consequences. Unable to successfully score an acting gig, she has, instead, been cast in the role of reluctant bodyguard to a real-life assassin's target -- a dashing FBI agent of all people! -- and must embark with him upon a scavenger hunt across Manhattan in search of the ultimate prize: survival. Before this, Jenn's definition of fighting dirty has been elbowing her way to the front of the line at a Manolo sample sale. Now, if she wants to stay alive, she's going to have to learn a few new uses for her stilettos. . . and they ain't pretty. Fast, flirty, and full of great footwear, The Manolo Matrix is another electrifying adventure in this breakout series for fashionistas who love a perfectly appointed mystery.

The Manor

by Isaac Bashevis Singer

The complex family chronicle of a Jewish family in nineteenth-century Poland showing the dispersion of that family, and the separation and hostility between generations. Calman Jacoby, a spiritual, honest man who observes his Jewish traditions, begins a new phase of his life as a wealthy business man after he takes over the management of a Polish manor. The stories of his four daughters and their husbands show different levels of keeping or rejecting the traditions instilled in each by their father.<P> Singer raises issues of capitalism and success versus maintaining the observations of Jewish tradition, and of rationalism and science versus the mysticism and superstition of the village Jewish community. Some men immerse themselves in the world of old, Talmudic scholarship, speak only Yiddish, and shun contact with outsiders, while others begin to shave, wear European clothing, eat non-kosher food, and associate with women outside the family. Singer describes tension and upheaval within families in times of rapid transition from one kind of society to another.

Manor of Death

by Leslie Caine

Erin Gilbert is paid to bring spaces to new life-not to uncover murder. But from the beginning of her job in a Victorian manor, things are totally out of control. It starts with the sighting of a ghost and leads to the discovery of a decades-old secret, a hidden dead space in the attic, and the shocking death of a beautiful young woman. Teamed with her insufferably self-confident competitor, Steve Sullivan, Erin finds herself up against the neighbors, a troubled teen, a woman communing with the dead, and one very unnerved client. The more Erin works on the house, the more manners of death she seems to find until, like peeling off layers of wallpaper, she suddenly sees it revealed all too clearly: the perfect blueprint for murder.... From the Paperback edition.

Manresa

by David Kinch Christine Muhlke Eric Ripert

The long-awaited cookbook by one of the San Francisco Bay Area's star chefs, David Kinch, who has revolutionized restaurant culture with his take on the farm-to-table ethic and focus on the terroir of the Northern California coast. Since opening Manresa in Los Gatos in 2002, award-winning Chef David Kinch has done more to create a sense of place through his food--specifically that of Northern California, where the Santa Cruz Mountains meet the sea--than any other chef at his level. Rather than buy his ingredients from a network of local producers, he closed the loop between farm and table by partnering with nearby Love Apple Farms, which grows almost 100 percent of his produce year round. Kinch's interpretation of these ingredients, drawing on his 30 years in restaurants as well as his far-flung and well-fed travels, are at the heart of the Manresa experience. In Manresa, Chef Kinch details his thoughts on building a dish: the creativity, experimentation and emotion that go into developing each plate and daily menu--and how a tasting menu ultimately tells a deeper story. A literary snapshot of the restaurant, from Chef Kinch's inspirations to his techniques, this book celebrates the creativity behind the food of Manresa and its profound connection to the land and sea of Northern California.

A Man's Gotta Eat What a Man's Gotta Eat (EBK)

by Dana Fredsti

Chuck T-Bone is a private detective--A P.I. A gumshoe. A dick. He also happens to be a zombie, in a world where the zombies have taken over, and "fresh meat" is a rare commodity. Where you go into a diner to order an elbow joint with a side of toes. But nothing's really changed--the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, at least until they fall apart altogether. When a curvaceous member of a famous crime family walks into his office, he's forced to reopen a case he'd just as soon forget. It's the one that introduced him to the dame who stole his heart--and got him killed. Trouble is, if it happens again, this time it's for good.

Man's Place in Nature

by Thomas H. Huxley Stephen Jay Gould

Thomas H. Huxley was one of the first supporters of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and he did more than any other writer to advance its acceptance among scientists and nonscientists alike. His most famous book, Man's Place in Nature, published only five years after Darwin's The Origin of Species, offers a compelling review of primate and human paleontology, and is the first attempt to apply Darwin's theory to human beings. As compelling a piece of analysis now as it was 140 years ago, Man's Place in Nature is a must for every science lover's library.

A Man's Strategy for Conquering Temptation

by Bob Vereen

Christian men are in the midst of a life-long process. They're being transformed by the renewing of their minds, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, they're crucifying the sinful nature with its passions and desires. But the world, the flesh, and the devil go to great lengths to thwart the process. Our culture is obsessed with sex. Pornography, declining morals, pervasive visual stimulation, rampant divorce, and epidemic adultery. They all reflect ungodly passions. And inflame impure thoughts. In this six-week study you'll learn that God has provided everything you need to resist temptation. Through the examples of men in Scripture-those who fell into sin and those who stood firm-you'll find hope for controlling your passions. You'll learn how to choose the path of purity. And you'll find assurance that through the power of the Holy Spirit and God's Word, you can escape the corruption of this world and one day stand before God blameless and pure.

Mansfield Park: The Illustrated Edition

by Jane Austen

This special edition of Mansfield Park includes the famous illustrations by Henry Matthew Brock, originally created in 1898. Brock and his brothers were all successful illustrators of the day and often posed for each other using costumes, props and furniture in their Cambridge studio. Brock's older brother Charles joined him in illustrating other Jane Austen releases for this set of 1898 editions. Mansfield Park is Jane Austen's version of a Cinderella story. Fanny Price is a poor relation living with her rich uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, and their children. Edmund, the second son, is the only one who treats her with kindness and they develop a strong bond, until the dashing Henry Crawford and his lovely sister Mary come to visit. The Crawfords are outwardly charming, but their indifferent upbringing leaves them unable to distinguish right from wrong, and Fanny must watch her beloved Edmund almost fall into Mary's trap. Fanny Price is meek and mild, and unfailingly good. When the Crawfords introduce risky activities into her social set, she tries to prevent disaster, but the production of a play leads all the members of the family astray and Edmund almost falls irretrievably in love with the beautiful Mary. Fanny watches with trepidation and much pain, until Edmund's own high sense of morality brings him to the right conclusions about which is the better woman, on the inside.

Mansfield Park Revisited

by Joan Aiken

In Aiken's sequel to Jane Austen's complex and fascinating novel, after heroine Fanny Price marries Edmund Bertram, they depart for the Caribbean, and Fanny's younger sister Susan moves to Mansfield Park as Lady Bertram's new companion. Surrounded by the familiar cast of characters from Jane Austen's original, and joined by a few charming new characters introduced by the author, Susan finds herself entangled in romance, surprise, scandal, and redemption. Aiken's diverting tale gives the reader interesting speculation on how the Crawfords, whose winning personalities were marred by an amoral upbringing, might have turned out, and Jane Austen's morality tale takes new directions with an unexpected and somewhat controversial ending."A lovely read-and you don't have to have read Mansfield Park to enjoy it."-Woman's Own"Her sense of time and place is impeccable."-Publishers Weekly"An excellent sequel...remarkably effective and very funny."-Evening Standard
