The naturalist Gilbert White is at the heart of this collection. Like him, Jeremy Over explores an ecology with meticulous acuity. His poems are 'found in the field': the beauty and oddity of the language of others is brought into sharp focus. Robert Herrick's 'sweet disorder in the dress' is subjected to a series of disrobings; a guidebook, instruction manual and catalogue become occasions to celebrate the pleasures of language. Setting out from White's Natural History of Selborne, Over embarks on a sequence of poems that, in White's words, lend 'an helping hand towards the enlargement of the boundaries' of natural history. A deep seam of Englishness - Stanley Spencer, Samuel Palmer, Henry Purcell - runs parallel to an American dimension, and further off in time and space are traces of Tristan Tzara, Rumi and Wang Wei. The reasonable language with which we try to contain the unreasonableness of things here trips, spins and flies into new figurations.
The pro-hunting/anti-hunting controversy is a national issue that reaches from California to New York to Florida. Hunters defend their activity while anti-hunters vehemently condemn it. This book presents arguments from both groups and will help to broaden the perspective of each side. This book will be useful to students and scholars of environmental ethics. Contents: The Case for Hunting; The Case Against Hunting; Leopold's Ethics of Hunting; Political and Religious Factors of Hunting; Responsibility, Challenge and the Future.

The “noble people” was the name given the Aryans who lived south of the Medes and east of Elam. The Greeks called them PERSIANS. To lie, cheat or steal was forbidden among them. More than 2,500 YEARS AGO their great king prayed that his country be protected from war, famine and THE LIE. Wars and famine came and went, still the Persian place in history was maintained. Only THROUGH LIES is that HISTORY BEING IGNORED AND DESTROYED by the Islamic Republic. Persian Horses, Arabian Gulf (?), the TALES of the Persian Nights; all points of Persian Pride are in danger. Since lying for the sake of Islam has been justified, even praised as “clever,” the Islamic Republic of Iran is being maintained by LIES. They want all things Persian to go away forever and be replaced by Arabian radicalism. DECEIVED is a story of change and regression, honor and deceit. It is the tale of a modern-day “noble Persian” who lived in Iran from the early 1900’s until the Islamic Revolution in 1979, and the American patriot who befriended him. One was reared to be a sheik, ride horses, and lead caravans across the desert. The other was born in Tenessee, served in the Korean War and eliminated threats to American interests; without question. Fate intervened to change both their lives forever and lead to the beginning of the end for Persia. Although it is historical FICTION, some of the events were actual happenings told to the author by those who were there. Pat Hale has a Master’s degree in Divinity from Vanderbilt University in Nashville and is, currently, working on a History Master’s at American Public University online. Pat resides in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Welcome to Canada-home of the big bucks. Whitetail monarchs freely roam through the hardwood forests and crop fields in the checkered agricultural belt of this vast land. Heredity endows our deer with large bodies and matching massive antlers, but environment dictates behavior. Canadian whitetails are different and behave differently from their southern brethren. No matter where you have hunted before, deer hunting in Canada is a brand new game. Your old, tried-and-true ways will not work here. New tactics and strategies are required. Veteran hunter, Dragan Vujic, shares close to forty years of hunting experience in this comprehensive book on Canadian Whitetail Hunting. The book itself is divided into three parts-The Facts About Canadian Whitetails (general information, game laws, social structure, habitat, communication, breeding behavior, anatomy, kill zones), Critical Factors That Determine Canadian Whitetail Behavior (weather, phases of the moon, hunting pressure, time of year, scents, doe to buck ratios, time of day, food sources), Effective Canadian Whitetail Hunting Strategies (archers, snipers, stalkers, callers, drivers, blockers). Within these sections, Dragan Vujic covers all of the key components for hunting whitetails in Canada. Additional chapters include tactics for all situations, the recently new phenomenon of hunting deer in the suburbs and tracking wounded whitetails. [email protected]
The Encyclopedia of Deception examines lying from multiple perspectives drawn from the disciplines of social psychology, sociology, history, business, political science, cultural anthropology, moral philosophy, theology, law, family studies, evolutionary biology, philosophy, and more. From the “little white lie,” to lying on a resume, to the grandiose lies of presidents, this two-volume reference explores the phenomenon of lying in a multidisciplinary context to elucidate this common aspect of our daily lives. Not only a cultural phenomenon historically, lying is a frequent occurrence in our everyday lives. Research shows that we are likely to lie or intentionally deceive others several times a day or in one out of every four conversations that lasts more than 10 minutes. Key Features: More than 360 authored by key figures in the field are organized A-to-Z in two volumes, which are available in both print and electronic formats. Entries are written in a clear and accessible style that invites readers to explore and reflect on the use of lying and self-deception. Each article concludes with cross references to related entries and further readings. This academic, multi-author reference work will serve as a general, non-technical resource for students and researchers within social and behavioral science programs who seek to better understand the historical role of lying and how it is employed in modern society.
