Captured World History: The Blue Marble by Don Nardo Book Resume:
The astronauts headed to the moon in December 1972 thought they knew what to expect. They would soon be exploring the moon's surface in a lunar rover, traveling farther than anyone before them. They would be collecting soil and rock samples for study back on Earth and could expect to learn about the moon's physical makeup and age. But what they didn't expect came as a huge bonus. The astronauts of Apollo 17 would produce an amazing photograph of planet Earth a lonely globe floating in inky black space. Their stunning Blue Marble image was destined to become one of the most reproduced and recognizable photos in history. And no one is 100 percent sure who took it.
Riding the Blue Marble by Dave Wasserman Book Resume:
"in the beginning...at a 4:00am on-the-open-ocean darkness...in a polar freeze cold beyond cold...and the emptiest of grand canyons...the universe began...with a..." Thus begins Riding the Blue Marble, an illustrated meditation about Planet Earth. The 22 full-color illustrations come from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Science on a Sphere (SOS) resource. The poetic text offers a religious overlay to Earth's story. Creation, Fall, and Hope frame a call to responsible stewardship. This book is for people who are concerned about the changes happening in our environment, who welcome a spiritual perspective on life's purposes, and who are awed by the incredible beauty of our traveling planetary home. The purpose of this book is to expand the dialogue between an author and a reader into personal conversations with others as we become better caretakers of our planet. Riding the Blue Marble is an evocative word-journey that describes the creation of the Universe and the fragile nature of our Earth. It tells a story worth remembering when we consider that many in today's youngest generations will live to welcome the year 2100. The book reflects a heart for stewarding the planet and encouraging others to be stewards as well. It mixes science with the spiritual, showing how these complement and build off one another in a way that so many miss. Riding the Blue Marble invites us to see our lives intertwined with the vastness, beauty, and harmony of the Earth and its systems. And it is a reminder of our common humanity and our responsibility to preserve and heal this wondrous world we share. As a holy poem, worth reading and re-reading, Riding the Blue Marble issues a clarion call for us to reclaim our sacred trust as caretakers of the singular blue jewel we call home. You are invited to pause and reflect as we ride the Blue Marble together!

Blue Marble Evaluation by Michael Quinn Patton Book Resume:
As a transdisciplinary profession, evaluation has much to offer to global change interventions that work toward a sustainable future across national boundaries, sectors, and issues. This book introduces Blue Marble evaluation, which provides a framework for developing, adapting, and evaluating major systems change initiatives involving complex networks of stakeholders. Michael Quinn Patton demonstrates how the four overarching principles and 12 operating principles of this innovative approach allow evaluators, planners, and implementers to home in on sustainability and equity issues in an intervention. Compelling case examples, bulleted review lists, charts, and 80 original exhibits and graphics connect the global and local, the human and ecological. Rooted in utilization-focused, developmental, and principles-focused evaluation, Blue Marble evaluation is designed to tackle problems outside the reach of traditional evaluation practice.

Blue Marble Health by Peter J. Hotez Book Resume:
In 2011, Dr. Peter J. Hotez relocated to Houston to launch Baylor’s National School of Tropical Medicine. He was shocked to discover that a number of neglected diseases often associated with developing countries were widespread in impoverished Texas communities. Despite the United States’ economic prowess and first-world status, an estimated 12 million Americans living at the poverty level currently suffer from at least one neglected tropical disease, or NTD. Hotez concluded that the world’s neglected diseases—which include tuberculosis, hookworm infection, lymphatic filariasis, Chagas disease, and leishmaniasis—are born first and foremost of extreme poverty. In this book, Hotez describes a new global paradigm known as "blue marble health," through which he asserts that poor people living in wealthy countries account for most of the world’s poverty-related illness. He explores the current state of neglected diseases in such disparate countries as Mexico, South Korea, Argentina, Australia, the United States, Japan, and Nigeria. By crafting public policy and relying on global partnerships to control or eliminate some of the world’s worst poverty-related illnesses, Hotez believes, it is possible to eliminate life-threatening disease while at the same time creating unprecedented opportunities for science and diplomacy. Clear, compassionate, and timely, Blue Marble Health is a must-read for leaders in global health, tropical medicine, and international development, along with anyone committed to helping the millions of people who are caught in the desperate cycle of poverty and disease.
