Book Description
Mohandas K. Gandhi is one of the most inspiring figures of our time. In his classic autobiography he recounts the story of his life and how he developed his concept of active nonviolent resistance, which propelled the Indian struggle for independence and countless other nonviolent struggles of the twentieth century. In a new foreword, noted peace expert and teacher Sissela Bok urges us to adopt Gandhi's "attitude of experimenting, of tesing what will and will not bear close scrutiny, what can and cannot be adapted to new circumstances,"in order to bring about change in our own lives and communities. All royalties earned on this book are paid to the Navajivan Trust, founded by Gandhi, for use in carrying on his work.

Former President William Jefferson Clinton's hotly anticipated 957-page doorstop of a memoir is much like its author-charismatic, longwinded, and, many might say, deeply flawed. The first Democratic president to be elected to a second term since FDR in 1936, Clinton has lived what is by any account an eventful, inspiring life. As explained in early passages notable for their frankness and humanity, Clinton, born to humble Arkansas roots, never knew his father. William Jefferson Blythe was

With its homespun drawings and offerings of architectural wisdom for lay readers, this book is like a Whole Earth Catalog building course. In this update of his 1980 edition, however, Allen (architecture, Yale) manages to explain with brevity and common sense "how buildings work." In the opening pages, he places the Earth in the solar system and defines our place on

From Publishers Weekly
Gardening books don't come more hands-on than this thorough guide for organic gardeners, which offers practical information provided by real gardeners from all over the country. For every gardening situation, there is a natural solution. An easy Swiss chard cocktail will add zest to plants, while rhubarb spray will put a rout to fungal diseases, aphids and June bugs. Included also are innovative death traps for slugs (burlap laid on the beds or upside-down clay-pot traps lining a raised bed) for gardeners tired of the beer-in-the-saucer treatment, as well as deer deterrents (e.g., a fish emulsion and soap spray) and squirrel solutions (cayenne pepper spray). Slightly more complex are instructions for making herbal remedies and homespun crafts. It's all rounded out nicely with planting guides for various garden designs, sources for materials and information, zone maps, a metric conversion table and an intriguing reading list.
