After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.

Mona Lisa Overdrive
Author: William Gibson
William Gibson, author of the extraordinary multiaward-winning novel Neuromancer, has written his most brilliant and thrilling work to date . . .The Mona Lisa Overdrive. Enter Gibson's unique world—lyric and mechanical, sensual and violent, sobering and exciting—where multinational corporations and high tech outlaws vie for power, traveling into the computer-generated universe known as cyberspace. Into this world comes Mona, a young girl with a murky past and an uncertain future whose life is on a collision course with internationally famous Sense/Net star Angie Mitchell. Since childhood, Angie has been able to tap into cyberspace without a computer. Now, from inside cyberspace, a kidnapping plot is masterminded by a phantom entity who has plans for Mona, Angie, and all humanity, plans that cannot be controlled . . . or even known. And behind the intrigue lurks the shadowy Yazuka, the powerful Japanese underworld, whose leaders ruthlessly manipulate people and events to suit their own purposes . . . or so they think.
Talk Dirty German
Author: Alexis Munier, Karin Eberhardt
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Learn to Speak German--the Dirty Deutsch Way! If you think German is all brat and no wurst, you need to think again. German is sexier--and dirtier--than you might imagine. (Think Hamburg!) From hearts and violins to pigs and dogs, Goethe's native tongue is ripe--and rank--with creative obscenities, including: Kuck mal diese geile Schnitte! Look at that sexy chick! Literal translation: Look at that sexy slice! Alle wissen dass Klaus sehr gut geigt. Everyone knows Klaus f**ks well. Literal translation: Everyone knows Klaus plays the violin well.
Faust I & II
Author: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Goethe's most complex and profound work, Faust was the effort of the great poet's entire lifetime. Written over 60 years, it can be read as a document of Goethe's moral and artistic development. Faust is made available to the English reader in a completely new translation that communicates both its poetic variety and its many levels of tone. The language is present-day English, and Goethe's formal and rhythmic variety is reproduced in all its richness.
Das Buch befasst sich mit der in der gegenwärtigen Religionssoziologie kontrovers geführten Debatte um die Säkularisierungsthese. Da das Phänomen der Säkularisierung - komplementär dazu auch des Fundamentalismus - eng mit den monotheistischen Religionen verbunden ist, liegt der Schwerpunkt des Bandes auf diesen Religionstraditionen; vor allem der christlichen und islamischen. Neben unterschiedlichen soziologischen Paradigmen werden vergangene Epochen und gegenwärtige Tendenzen, sowohl anhand von länderspezifischen Entwicklungen, die sich vor allem auf Europa, Lateinamerika, die Türkei und Indonesien beziehen, als auch an Einzelbiographien, diskutiert.

Includes an excerpt from Stars over Castle Hill.
The first incendiary collection of stencils and graffiti from Banksy, presented and bound in a handy pocket sized high quality format. Rarely have art and politics been put to such fine, and overtly public, use. Mix the irony and juxtaposition of John Yates with the beauty of the finest aerosol art, and you'll have some idea of how good this really is. The reproductions are interspersed with an excellent array of quotes, statements, letters and a beginners guide to painting with stencils. Very, very good.
