Author: Alex Garland
The irresistible novel that was adapted into a major motion picture starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The Khao San Road, Bangkok -- first stop for the hordes of rootless young Westerners traveling in Southeast Asia. On Richard's first night there, in a low-budget guest house, a fellow traveler slashes his wrists, bequeathing to Richard a meticulously drawn map to "the Beach." The Beach, as Richard has come to learn, is the subject of a legend among young travelers in Asia: a lagoon hidden from the sea, with white sand and coral gardens, freshwater falls surrounded by jungle, plants untouched for a thousand years. There, it is rumored, a carefully selected international few have settled in a communal Eden. Haunted by the figure of Mr. Duck -- the name by which the Thai police have identified the dead man -- and his own obsession with Vietnam movies, Richard sets off with a young French couple to an island hidden away in an archipelago forbidden to tourists. They discover the Beach, and it is as beautiful and idyllic as it is reputed to be. Yet over time it becomes clear that Beach culture, as Richard calls it, has troubling, even deadly, undercurrents. Spellbinding and hallucinogenic, The Beach by Alex Garland -- both a national bestseller and his debut -- is a highly accomplished and suspenseful novel that fixates on a generation in their twenties, who, burdened with the legacy of the preceding generation and saturated by popular culture, long for an unruined landscape, but find it difficult to experience the world firsthand.
This volume is a collection of original chapters by a group of authors at the leading UK research and treatment centre on PTSD dealing with the diagnosis and context of PTSD, psychological mechanisms and behaviour, and strategies for therapy and prevention. Drawing on ten years intensive experience with adults and children presenting with PTSD and other disorders following a series of disasters, Yule emphasises the cognitive behavioural approach to PTSD and integrates important perspectives from social psychology, experimental cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and developmental psychology. Cross-cultural issues and issues in planning emergency responses to disasters are discussed. The controversy surrounding various short term and crisis interventions is critically presented.
The Snowden Files
Author: Luke Harding
Now a major motion picture, directed by Oliver Stone and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Edward Snowden was a 29-year-old computer genius working for the National Security Agency when he shocked the world by exposing the near-universal mass surveillance programs of the United States government. His whistleblowing has shaken the leaders of nations worldwide, and generated a passionate public debate on the dangers of global monitoring and the threat to individual privacy. In a tour de force of investigative journalism that reads like a spy novel, award-winning Guardian reporter Luke Harding tells Snowden’s astonishing story—from the day he left his glamorous girlfriend in Honolulu carrying a hard drive full of secrets, to the weeks of his secret-spilling in Hong Kong, to his battle for asylum and his exile in Moscow. For the first time, Harding brings together the many sources and strands of the story—touching on everything from concerns about domestic spying to the complicity of the tech sector—while also placing us in the room with Edward Snowden himself. The result is a gripping insider narrative—and a necessary and timely account of what is at stake for all of us in the new digital age. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Next to Verdi's Ada, Giacomo Puccini's La Bohme is the most popular opera ever written. Performances of Ada, La Bohme, Carmen, and Don Giovanni ? the four operas most often performed ? constitute approximately 75 percent of the yearly schedule of operas throughout the world. This volume contains everything the opera goer needs to derive full satisfaction from La Bohme except the musical score itself. Most important, it provides the complete text of the Italian libretto, just as it is actually sung; that is, where a singer repeats a phrase several times, each of the repetitions is given here. And facing the Italian text is a completely new translation of the libretto into modern, idiomatic English. In addition to the libretto and English translation, this edition provides a careful, concise summary of the plot of La Bohme and a complete list of the opera's characters. There is also a brief, highly informative introduction by the translator that traces Puccini's masterpiece back to its source in Henry Murger's autobiographical novel La Vie Bohme, illuminating the early history of the opera and its later development. Opera lovers can use this book with their own recordings of the opera, read it before attending a performance, or can easily take it along to the performance itself. Those who have regretted the lack of a good, authentic, readable edition of the Italian libretto of La Bohme, and have complained of the stodginess of existing English translations, will recognize in this book a first-rate aid to the understanding of one of Puccini's most celebrated operas.

Salads are perfect for big-flavour meals, but pre-made ones are often covered with sugary dressings and full of preservatives for extended shelf life, so Kathryn Bruton has ramped up the health-factor with her range of skinny salads to suit everyone, whether they want something warming and comforting, refreshing and revitalising or all-out wow. Chapters cover Gloriously Green, Comfort, Simple, Classics, Show-Off and Fruit Salads, and include gluten and dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan recipes. Plus there's a section with extra-good-for-you dressings, condiments and pickles. From warming Kofta Salad, a `Wind me Down' Winter's Evening Salad and tasty Spiced Roasted Plum Salad to a twist on the classic, Caesar Salad with Purple Kale, Kathryn minimises the use of sugary, heavy dressings and bland leaves and brings fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients. Each salad is less than 300 calories per portion but still jam-packed with flavour.
