Play dead by Harris, Francine J., author.

Play dead

""This book talks smack. This book chews with its open mouth full of the juiciest words, the most indigestible images. This book undoes me. Francine J. Harris brilliantly ransacks the poet's toolkit, assembling art from buckets of disaster and shreds of hope. Nothing she lays her mind's eye on escapes. You, too, will be captured by her work."--Evie Shockley -- Lyrically raw and dangerously unapologetic, play dead challenges us to look at our cultivated selves as products of circumstance and atte

Project Mercury by Reichl, Eugen.

Project Mercury

"Project Mercury was America's entry into the manned spaceflight program. When the program began in 1958, the Soviet Union was far ahead of the United States in the race for supremacy in space. With immense effort, and in record time, NASA, the newly created spaceflight organization, developed a space transport system with orbital capsule and booster rockets. They used it to send Alan Shepard on a first suborbital 'jump' into space in May 1961, and in February 1962 to make John Glenn the firs

Revolutionary dissent - how the founding generation created the freedom of speech by Solomon, Stephen D., author.

Revolutionary dissent - how the founding generation created the freedom of speech

"When members of the founding generation protested against British authority, debated separation, and then ratified the Constitution, they formed the American political character we know today-raucous, intemperate, and often mean-spirited. Revolutionary Dissent brings alive a world of colorful and stormy protests that included effigies, pamphlets, songs, sermons, cartoons, letters and liberty trees. Solomon explores through a series of chronological narratives how Americans of the Revolutionary

Strike for America - Chicago teachers against austerity by Uetricht, Micah.

Strike for America - Chicago teachers against austerity

The 2012 Chicago Teachers Union strike was the most important domestic labor struggle so far this century--and perhaps for the last forty years--and the strongest challenge to the conservative agenda for restructuring education, which advocates for more charter schools and tying teacher salaries to standardized testing, among other changes. In 2012, Chicago teachers built a grassroots movement through education and engagement of an entire union. -- Provided by publisher.

The world's emergency room - the growing threat to doctors, nurses, and humanitarian workers by VanRooyen, Michael J., author.

The world's emergency room - the growing threat to doctors, nurses, and humanitarian workers

Twenty years ago, the most common cause of death for medical humanitarians and other aid workers was traffic accidents; today, it is violent attacks. And the death of each doctor, nurse, paramedic, midwife, and vaccinator is multiplied untold times in the vulnerable populations deprived of their care. In a 2005 report, the ICRC found that for every soldier killed in the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, more than 60 civilians died due to loss of immunizations and other basic health se

The Silk Road - taking the bus to Pakistan

"To travel upon the Silk Road is to travel through history. Millennia older than California's Camino Real, and perhaps even a few years senior to the roads of the Roman Empire, the Silk Road is a network of routes stretching from delta towns of China all the way to the Mediterranean Sea -- a cultural highway considered to be essential to the development of some of the world's oldest civilizations. It was upon this road that that Chinese silk traveled and was exchanged for incense, precious stone
