    Pages:   336

    From Barnes & NobleAccording to the United Nations Environment Program, our planet is losing 1050 to 1400 plant, insect, and animal species each week. This is nearly 1,000 times the "natural" rate; indeed, the highest kill-rate experienced since the demise of the dinosaurs nearly 65 million years ago. This new book by New Yorker writer and Field Notes from a Catastrophe author Elizabeth Kolbert takes us into both past extinctions and future possible calamities. The Sixth Extinction is not, however, a science fiction fantasy; it is based on her consultation with dozens of scientists and other researchers. Essential reading for those concerned with our environment. The New York Times - Michiko Kakutani …Elizabeth Kolbert's arresting new book…is the very model of explanatory journalism, making highly complex theories and hypotheses accessible to even the most science-challenged of readers, while providing a wonderfully tactile sense of endangered (or already departed) species and their shrinking habitats…Ms. more

  • Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War

    Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Robert M Gates
    Publisher:   Knopf (2014, Jan 14th).

    From the former secretary of defense, a strikingly candid, vividly written account of his experience serving Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Before Robert M. Gates received a call from the White House in 2006, he thought he’d left Washington politics behind: after working for six presidents in both the CIA and the National Security Council, he was happy in his role as president of Texas A&M University. But when he was asked to help a nation mired in two wars and to aid the troops doing the fighting, he answered what he felt was the call of duty. Now, in this unsparing memoir, meticulously fair in its assessments, he takes us behind the scenes of his nearly five years as a secretary at war: the battles with Congress, the two presidents he served, the military itself, and the vast Pentagon bureaucracy; his efforts to help Bush turn the tide in Iraq; his role as a guiding, and often dissenting, voice for Obama; the ardent devotion to and love for American soldiers—his “heroes”—he developed on the job. more
