Eagle in the Land of Dragons by , Book Resume:

In 36 BC, Li Bi was the Prefect of Zhangye province in Han Dynasty China. He was called out of a comfortable retirement to join a military expedition against his old enemies the Xiongnu as cavalry commander. He would rather stay home in his new villa and enjoy the carnal pleasures with youngest wife Qingling. His past however beckons him and leaves him no choice. There are Romans in the Xiongnu army and perhaps, old comrades. Meanwhile as he prepares his men he writes a book about another war fought right around the world in Belgica. He traces the adventures of a young Centurion named Livy as he fights for Julius Caesar against the Belgae in 57BC. Livy leads Caesars band of mounted scouts armed with composite bows. The war is brutal but Livys life is complicated by the many exotic and seductive women he meets on the campaign trail. Caesar sends him on ever more dangerous missions but Livys understanding of the art of war sees him trough each encounter with the brave and determined enemy. The campaign climaxes at the River Sabis where Bodougnatus, King of the Nervii and 100,000 blood thirsty barbarians set up an elaborate ambush for the unwary Roman Army. Can Caesars vaunted tactical skills save the Roman Army from annihilation? Will Livys vaunted good luck finally run out? Meanwhile Li Bi rides west to face Chanyu Zhizhi, King of the Western Xiongnu with his newly raised cavalry armed with repeating crossbows. How will his Chinese troops fare against crack Roman infantry?

Media and the Make-Believe Worlds of Children by Maya Gotz,Dafna Lemish,Hyesung Moon,Amy Aidman Book Resume:

Media and the Make-Believe Worlds of Children offers new insights into children's descriptions of their invented or "make-believe" worlds, and the role that the children's experience with media plays in creating these worlds. Based on the results of a cross-cultural study conducted in the United States, Germany, Israel, and South Korea, it offers an innovative look at media's role on children's creative lives. This distinctive volume: *outlines the central debates and research findings in the area of children, fantasy worlds, and the media; *provides a descriptive account of children's make-believe worlds and their wishes for actions they would like to take in these worlds; *highlights the centrality of media in children's make believe worlds; *emphasizes the multiple creative ways in which children use media as resources in their environment to express their own inner worlds; and *suggests the various ways in which the tension between traditional gender portrayals that continue to dominate media texts and children's wishes to act are presented in their fantasies. The work also demonstrates the value of research in unveiling the complicated ways in which media are woven into the fabric of children's everyday lives, examining the creative and sophisticated uses they make of their contents, and highlighting the responsibility that producers of media texts for children have in offering young viewers a wide array of role models and narratives to use in their fantasies. An enclosed CD provides full-color images of the artwork produced during the study. This book will appeal to scholars and graduate students in children and media, early childhood education, and developmental psychology. It can be used in graduate level courses in these areas.

The Poetic Edda by Carolyne Larrington Book Resume:

She sees, coming up a second time, earth from the ocean, eternally green; the waterfalls plunge, an eagle soars above them, over the mountain hunting fish. After the terrible conflagration of Ragnarok, the earth rises serenely again from the ocean, and life is renewed. The Poetic Edda begins with The Seeress's Prophecy which recounts the creation of the world, and looks forward to its destruction and rebirth. In this great collection of Norse-Icelandic mythological and heroic poetry, the exploits of gods and humans are related. The one-eyed Odin, red-bearded Thor, Loki the trickster, the lovely goddesses, and the giants who are their enemies walk beside the heroic Helgi, Sigurd the Dragon-Slayer, Brynhild the shield-maiden, and the implacable Gudrun. This translation also features the quest-poem The Lay of Svipdag and The Waking of Angantyr, in which a girl faces down her dead father to retrieve his sword. Comic, tragic, instructive, grandiose, witty, and profound, the poems of the Edda have influenced artists from Wagner to Tolkien and speak to us as freely as when they were first written down seven hundred and fifty years ago.

The Soul of A New Machine by Tracy Kidder Book Resume:

Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Kidder memorably records the drama, comedy, and excitement of one company's efforts to bring a new microcomputer to market. Computers have changed since 1981, when The Soul of a New Machine first examined the culture of the computer revolution. What has not changed is the feverish pace of the high-tech industry, the go-for-broke approach to business that has caused so many computer companies to win big (or go belly up), and the cult of pursuing mind-bending technological innovations. The Soul of a New Machine is an essential chapter in the history of the machine that revolutionized the world in the twentieth century.

European Perceptions of Terra Australis by Alfred Hiatt,Christopher Wortham Book Resume:

Terra Australis - the southern land - was one of the most widespread concepts in European geography from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries, although the notion of a land mass in the southern seas had been prevalent since classical antiquity. Despite this fact, there has been relatively little sustained scholarly work on European concepts of Terra Australis or the intellectual background to European voyages of discovery and exploration to Australia in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Through interdisciplinary scholarly contributions, ranging across history, the visual arts, literature and popular culture, this volume considers the continuities and discontinuities between the imagined space of Terra Australis and its subsequent manifestation. It will shed new light on familiar texts, people and events - such as the Dutch and French explorations of Australia, the Batavia shipwreck and the Baudin expedition - by setting them in unexpected contexts and alongside unfamiliar texts and people. The book will be of interest to, among others, intellectual and cultural historians, literary scholars, historians of cartography, the visual arts, women's and post-colonial studies.

Anatolia, AD 260. The Roman outpost of Edessa is on its last legs after the Persian siege, and Roman Emperor Publius Licinius Valerianus agrees to meet his adversary to negotiate peace. But the meeting is a trap and the Emperor ends up in enemy hands, along with the commander of his personal guard, Marcus Metellus Aquila, and ten of his most valiant and trusted men. Their destiny is sealed: they will rot away in a mine, forced into slavery. But Metellus - legate of the Second Augusta Legion, hero of the empire - and his men break free and find shelter at an oasis, where they meet a mysterious, exiled prince.

And so they begin an extraordinary and epic journey through the forests of India, the Himalayan mountains, the deserts of central Asia, all the way to the heart of China - as the very survival of the world's greatest two empires is at stake.

The Dragon of Despair by Jane Lindskold Book Resume:

When Firekeeper discovers that the Beast’s greatest fear has become reality, she turns to King Tedric of Hawk Haven for aid. The old king is willing to help the wolf-woman – for a price. Firekeeper’s former adversary, Melina Shield, has risen to great prominence in the neighboring land of New Kelvin. Melina’s unexpected power threatens the reputation of King Tedric’s heir apparent, Sapphire, and, through Sapphire, dreams for the new realm of Bright Haven. King Tedric’s price for helping the Beasts is that Firekeeper and Blind Seer escort Elise Archer and her handpicked diplomatic team into New Kelvin, then assist them with their investigations. The last time Firekeeper and her friends visited New Kelvin, they ended up fleeing as hunted fugitives, but this may be the least difficulty upon their return. Firekeeper is plagued with visions featuring the comet that streaks through the skies. These feed her growing sense that to continue interacting with humans will eventually lead to the transformation of the wild Beasts into nothing more than human tools. Doubt is a new enemy to Firekeeper – one that threatens even her bond with her beloved companion, the wolf, Blind Seer.

Azulagua by Bridget Roemelen Book Resume:

Chapter One: The Great War. In the land of Azulagua, the magical beings were in a state of terror. For a new being was on the cost of their home, many had fled to their homes and some ran and hide behind the rocks that lined the tree line. The new comers finally made landfall on July Fifth, 2007. The magical beings were a race called Wood Elves, there are three types of elves but in this world there are only two the Wood and the High elves(no that does not mean on drugs it means that they are wiser and more spirally inclined than the other types of elves like a Buddhist Monk); they ran to find their queen, Vulcania. The QUEEN assembled two of her finest soldiers and rode out to meet these 'Beings' who are now in her territory. But before she could do such a thing she must consult with her council of elders and send a fare warning to the beings. The fallowing evening Queen Vulcania and two of her most skilled archers arrive on the outskirts of their small settlement called Gore. It is a small settlement just off the Egene Sea, and is governed by Mark Van Drake. He is about five foot nine with golden-brown hair and bright baby blue eyes, his family is very rich but he is poor due to the fact that his father, King Vladimir Van Drake, tried to kill Mark at the age of sixteen. So he and a small group of pilgrims as well as friends sailed south of Great Britain and found land, all because of his father and the terror that he caused. Mark Van Drake was very young when he showed numerous talent of being a skilled leader and he also excelled in politics as well as money, born on March tenth, 1991; he progressed under his mother's watchful eye. On the eve of July fifth, 2007 Queen Vulacania entered Gore and asked to speak with the leader of the settlement. Mark stepped forward and said "I am the leader of the people of Gore, what matter of business do you have with me," "I, Queen Vulacania, ruler of these lands have come to negotiate with you on terms of peace so that your people and my people may help one another if need be." Mark and Queen Vulacania went to town hall and they discussed the terms to which they both approved of. The humans and elves lived peacefully for many a month, each harvest they would come together and celebrate, on the last day of the harvest they would celebrate with a feast; they called this day 'All Thanks Day.' On the first day of spring, a young lady of the age of sixteen was out with her friends in the forest around Gore playing a game. After the game she the young lady took a brisk walk to find some berries when she came to a clearing with a large, shiny rock in the middle. So she walked over to it thinking that it was just a large rock so she picked it up and when the sun hit the rock it revealed colors of red, black and blue. The colors reminded her of something she once had but she couldn't remember what, so she took it home unaware of the danger that lurked above. For the rock was not a rock at all but an egg that belonged to the fieriest beast that side of the mountains, A DRAGON!!! To a dragon the most important thing is the well being of the young, for you see dragons watch their young in turns. ( the American Bald eagle does the same, they care for their young in turns.) At that moment the sire of the egg was watching every move that she made, from where he sat the young lady looked like an elf (we are almost identical) so he went to the elves to ask why they would do something like that. Bridgett Ravenclaw ( the young lady) went back to her cottage at the edge of the forest. Bridgett is a sixteen year old, five foot ten inch, brunette with blue-green eyes who will go on a journey of self-discovery and wonder. During the night the area around the stone(egg) she found earlier that day began to stir and shake with a vigorous force. So she lite a candle then walked over to where the stone was, she found it shattered into very fine shards of blue and black. She looked around
