Book Description :

From the patristic age until the Gregorian calendar reform of 1582, computus -- the science of time reckoning and art of calendar construction -- was a matter of intense concern. Bede's The Reckoning of Time (De temporum ratione) was the first comprehensive treatise on this subject and the model and reference for all subsequent teaching discussion and criticism of the Christian calendar. It is a systematic exposition of the Julian solar calendar and the Paschal table of Dionysius Exiguus, with their related formulae for calculating dates. But it is more than a technical handbook. Bede sets calendar lore within a broad scientific framework and a coherent Christian concept of time, and incorporates themes as diverse as the theory of tides and the doctrine of the millennium. This translation of the full text of The Reckoning of Time includes an extensive historical introduction and a chapter-by-chapter commentary. It will interest historians of medieval science, theology, and education, Bede scholars and Anglo-Saxonists, liturgists, and Church historians. It will also serve as an accessible introduction to computus itself. Generations of medieval computists nourished their expertise in Bede's orderly presentation; modern scholars in quest of safe passage through this complex terrain can hope for no better guide.

Book Description :

"Penman's characters are so shrewdly imagined, so full of resonant human feeling that they seem to breathe on the page." —San Francisco Chronicle "Never forget, Llewelyn, that the world's greatest fool is a Welshman who trusts an English king." His father's words haunt Llewelyn ap Gruffydd, Prince of Wales, who has been ruling uneasily over his fractious countrymen. Above all else, Llewelyn fears that his life and his own dream—of an independent, united Wales—might be lost to Edward I's desire to expand his English empire. Alive from the pages of history, this is the hauntingly beautiful and compelling tale of a game poised to play itself out to its bloody finale as English and Welsh cross swords in a reckoning that must mean disaster for one side or the other. For anyone who has ever wanted to experience the rich tapestry of British history and lore, this bold and romantic adventure must be read.

Book Description :

A reunion in the wilderness between a roughneck father and his estranged son takes a dangerous turn. Billy Underwood hasn't seen his father for most of his life, until the hardscrabble Clay Underwood shows up and whisks the puzzled boy away, bent on taking him on an autumn elk hunt in the Montana wilderness. While wary of his dad and inexperienced in the field, Billy is excited, and quickly responds to Clay's awkward and tough but tender attempt to bond with him through the vehicle of a grand outdoor adventure in the Rocky Mountains. As winter in the high country approaches, father and son bond in quiet, unexpected, and profound ways, while searching for and tracking the elusive elk. Clay doesn't always have the right words to express his feelings, but passes important lessons to his son, from how to track elk and predict the weather, to talking with girls and falling in love. As the prospect of finding elk grows slimmer, the weather takes a sudden turn for the worst. The dangers of being lost and alone in the wilderness quickly become apparent to father and son on a trip that inexorably hurtles toward tragedy.

Book Description :

Thomas Pfeiffer, a man with a name and no memory wakes up in a rustic farmhouse tied to a bed and surrounded by people who urge him that he must help them. Unable to understand how and wanting to ask, he is assaulted by unseen voices that cry out in his mind and threaten to fracture the integrity of his sanity. To escape these voices, he travels to different times in the checkered history of Debouton "Boonetown" Alabama. He follows the Boones and an entity referred to as "The Piper" and finds himself confronted by elements of the supernatural. He also discovers that these "travels" are not dreams in the traditional sense and that he has the power to change that particular part of the past he inhabits. As each new piece is uncovered he comes to the realization that the Piper has an agenda, and time is wasting. Will Thomas Pfeiffer be able to put the pieces together and find what he has to do before the Time of Reckoning is at hand? Time, existence, and his sanity hang in the balance.

Book Description :

It was on a beautiful morning in June 1973 that eleven-year-old Miller McAllister’s world fell apart ... That was the weekend that police found the remains of three missing teenage girls on the tiny Scottish island of Fidra. And that was the weekend that Miller’s father, Douglas, was arrested for triple murder. Thirty-two years later, Douglas has died in prison and Miller returns home after decades of self-imposed exile. The McAllister family always maintained Douglas’s innocence – as steadfastly as Miller maintained his guilt. But when Miller is given the legal archive and a letter his father wrote to him just days before his death, suddenly everything looks less clear. To excavate the past and recover the truth, Miller immerses himself in the terrible events of over thirty years ago and his family’s darkest hour. Was nothing quite as it seemed on that fateful June day? Could Douglas McAllister have been innocent after all? And if he didn’t kill the girls ... who did?

Book Description :

Enter the territory of Jeff Long, where the unknown is deeply present, death is a constant shadow, and the human spirit is our final hope. Now comes The Reckoning, another superbly original thriller -- a story of predation, betrayal, and resurrection that is at once intricate, haunting, and terrifying. Armed with only a camera and iron determination, thirty-year-old photojournalist Molly Drake arrives in modern-day Cambodia to cover the U.S. military search for the remains of an American pilot shot down during the Vietnam War. In this eerie wasteland pockmarked with human bones and live land mines, the people hold more secrets than the landscape, from aging archaeologist Duncan O'Brian to John Kleat, a caustic vet hunting for his long lost brother. When Molly's camera captures a flight helmet buried among Khmer Rouge victims, diplomatic powers force her and her civilian comrades off the dig. But just as a typhoon looms offshore, the outcasts learn of an even bigger find. A mysterious expatriot guides them into the ruins of an ancient city, where they begin a harrowing search for the remains of an entire patrol of GIs that strayed in combat thirty years ago. With storm winds hammering their jungle fortress, Molly discovers that a war she never knew never died. Her survival comes to depend on her journalistic skills to solve a forgotten murder among these warriors left behind. In the end, her only hope for salvation is to redeem the lost souls that surround her. As stylishly written as it is suspenseful, The Reckoning is a thriller that illuminates the fragile thread between life and death, knowledge and ignorance, hope and horror. Bringing readers ever closer to enemy territory, it is a hair-raising journey into one of modern history's darkest periods and an intense look into the hearts still haunted by it.

Book Description :

New York Times Bestseller: “A historical overview of the auto industry in the United States and Japan [and] the gradual decline of U.S. manufacturing” (Library Journal). After generations of creating high-quality automotive products, American industrialists began losing ground to the Japanese auto industry in the decades after World War II. David Halberstam, with his signature precision and absorbing narrative style, traces this power shift by delving into the boardrooms and onto the factory floors of the America’s Ford Motor Company and Japan’s Nissan. Different in every way—from their reactions to labor problems to their philosophies and leadership styles—the two companies stand as singular testaments to the challenges brought by the rise of the global economy. From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Fifties and The Coldest Winter, and filled with intriguing vignettes about Henry Ford, Lee Iacocca, and other visionary industrial leaders, The Reckoning remains a powerful and enlightening story about manufacturing in the modern age, and how America fell woefully behind. This ebook features an extended biography of David Halberstam.

After ten stolen years in a coma, hanging on to life by strands of uncertainty, Linda Faraday is finally awake. All she knows is she used to be an undercover operative looking into the shady dealings of embezzler Cameron Fortune. And today… A survivor? A mother to a ten-year-old son? Now that Ryan Fortune is gone, FBI agent Emmett Jamison is stepping in to help her—although he hardly seems thrilled at the prospect. An empty house and a growing connection erode some of Linda's doubts about welcoming Emmett into her heart. But ultimately Linda isn't sure Emmett fits into her plans: a simple life with a simple man. Spending days chasing after his murderously insane brother hardly qualifies. But maybe Linda was never meant to take the safe road. Maybe it's time for a final reckoning. For everyone…

In The Reckoning, award-winning historian Jacob Soll shows how the use and misuse of financial bookkeeping has determined the fates of entire societies. Time and again, Soll reveals, good and honest accounting has been a tool to build successful companies, states and empires. Yet when it is neglected or falls into the wrong hands, accounting has contributed to cycles of destruction that continue to this day. Combining rigorous scholarship and fresh storytelling, The Reckoning traces the surprisingly powerful influence of accounting on financial and political stability, from the powerful Medici bank in 14th century Italy to the 2008 financial crisis.

Book Description :

San Francisco, 1908. After a catastrophic earthquake and fire, the devastated city is rapidly rebuilding its structures, spirit, and vitality. It is proudly called the New San Francisco. But there are still parts of San Francisco that haven't changed, including the Barbary Coast, where a crimp, padfoot, or murderous thug could be waiting around the next corner. And the city is still infected with anti-Asian racism and widespread political corruption. Into this "new" San Francisco, William Dunbar returns to avenge a brutal family murder that he believes occurred at exactly the time of the quake. As a writer of scenarios for one-reel motion pictures, he plans to use his craft to reveal the killer's guilt. However, he soon finds the odds are against him when he confronts much darker dangers than those of the Barbary Coast.
