Preshrunk Ponderings And Rumpled Rememberings

Preshrunk Ponderings and Rumpled Rememberings is a collection of folksy essays on low-cost housing and its relationship to homelessness, on public transportation and its relationships to independence of movement and quality of life, on artifice and institutionalism in higher education, and on the tinkering mind and creative science. The author draws from his experiences in living life fully from the low-end of the economic scale and offers uncommon perspectives on what readers may find common all around us. Reasonable analyses of problems are intended less toward offerings of solutions than to provoke thought and stimulate discussion. There are no overt polemics or hard-line politics that might stir the dental profession to action from widespread gnashing of teeth. These are just amiable discourses on a few diverse topics to animate some dimension to the prevailing flat dullness and torpor. They are easy reading for a few lazy hours.

Twelve Years A Slave

Twelve Years A Slave

"Having been born a freeman, and for more than thirty years enjoyed the blessings of liberty in a free State—and having at the end of that time been kidnapped and sold into Slavery, where I remained, until happily rescued in the month of January, 1853, after a bondage of twelve years—it has been suggested that an account of my life and fortunes would not be uninteresting to the public." -an excerpt

Immodest Proposals

Immodest Proposals

Out of necessity in frankly covering a murky subject like pornography, this book may occasionally have language that could be offensive to some people. The book explores pornography in a social context that originated with the first clothing and the first language. The exploration continues with the invention of the camera, its offering of new opportunities in pornography, and various legal and social interactions growing out of these. The author explores a hypothesis that interest in pornography has its roots in a debaucher-debauchee dichotomy beginning with civilization, and this generates the spectator fascination, commercial customers, pornography creators, and porno models themselves. Touches on the history of pornography, legal issues raised by pornography, and descriptions of aspects of pornography should enlighten readers to an enormous and real cultural phenomenon lurking below the surface of our contemporary civilization and not without its effects on everyone.

The Tragic End Of The Bronze Age

The Tragic End Of The Bronze Age

A catastrophe of unimaginable proportions struck in the middle of the twelfth century BC and with a sudden swiftness brought Old World civilizations to an abrupt end. This initiated the world’s longest and deepest known dark age. When the world finally recovered centuries later, new written languages had replaced old ones, a new strategic and useful metal had replaced the old one, and the historical reality of the old civilizations had been replaced by yore and myth invented from fragments passed down through the barrier of the long deep dark age. Some of these fragments, and possibly some references to the catastrophe itself, may be found in the Old Testament and in ancient Greek literature. Out of the fragmented preserved memories, and stories built around them, we became what we are today.

Sinking Into Summer S Arms

Sinking Into Summer S Arms

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY: The author is an American who thinks too much, exercises too little, and lived for years in Europe and Asia. Tom Slattery has worked a wide range of jobs, including for a variety or research laboratories, and lives to leave himself open to unconventional ideas and uncommon experiences. BOOK DESCRIPTION: Sinking into Summer’s Arms opens with the discovery of a body of a Neanderthal frozen in a rapidly melting Alpine glacier in a globally warming near-future world. The Neanderthal is secretly spirited off to Holland where a group of postgraduates utilizes state-of-the-art research facilities at the Instituut Leeuwenhoek in Delft. Simultaneously, another group—of plotters—is planning to utilize the Instituut Leeuwenhoek as cover to assassinate the United Nations Emergency Secretary for Global Warming. A third factor enters when a Harvard professor discovers that the warming may have produced conditions to initiate a new Ice Age. And the United Nations Emergency Secretary, unaware of the plot, is struggling to keep the New Ice Age theory super-secret and avoid worldwide panic until more facts support this startling theory. The re-created mind of the Neanderthal, the assassination plot, and the impending ice age become excitingly intertwined around a subtext of scientific ethics—with a surprise ending.
