Bruce Springsteen is certainly no stranger to acoustic-based, folk-inspired music. So its not a shock that he would release a tribute album to folk icon Pete Seeger with 2006s WE SHALL OVERCOME: THE SEEGER SESSIONS. The album celebrates not just Seegers musical influence, but also the political stands the singer took, which obviously resonate with the famously progressive Springsteen. And while the E Street Band may be absent, Bruce tackles Seegers tunes in classic larger-than-life Boss style, with a huge band that includes several string players, a horn section, accordion, and more. Incorporating everything from Dixieland to zydeco into the folk/blues template, Bruce stirs up a rowdy cauldron of Americana teeming with as much pure human passion as social import. This program captures the Boss performing many of the albums tracks in a live concert recorded at Dublins The Point during a three-night stand in November 2006.

Thinking in Java has earned raves from programmers worldwide for its extraordinary clarity, careful organization, and small, direct programming examples. It´s the definitive introduction to object-oriented programming in the language of the world wide web. From the fundamentals of Java syntax to its most advanced features, Thinking in Java is designed to teach, one simple step at a time. Fully updated for J2SE5 with many new examples and chapters. Product Description ´´ Thinking in Java should be read cover to cover by every Java programmer, then kept close at hand for frequent reference. The exercises are challenging, and the chapter on Collections is superb! Not only did this book help me to pass the Sun Certified Java Programmer exam; it´s also the first book I turn to whenever I have a Java question.´´ -Jim Pleger, Loudoun County (Virginia) Government ´´ Much better than any other Java book I´ve seen. Make that ´by an order of magnitude´.... Very complete, with excellent right-to-the-point examples and intelligent, not dumbed-down, explanations.... In contrast to many other Java books I found it to be unusually mature, consistent, intellectually honest, well-written, and precise. IMHO, an ideal book for studying Java.´´ -Anatoly Vorobey, Technion University, Haifa, Israel ´´Absolutely one of the best programming tutorials I´ve seen for any language.´´ -Joakim Ziegler, FIX sysop ´´Thank you again for your awesome book. I was really floundering (being a non-C programmer), but your book has brought me up to speed as fast as I could read it. It´s really cool to be able to understand the underlying principles and concepts from the start, rather than having to try to build that conceptual model through trial and error. Hopefully I will be able to attend your seminar in the not-too-distant future.´´ -Randall R. Hawley, automation technician, Eli Lilly & Co. ´´This is one of the best books I´ve read about a programming language.... The best book ever written on Java.´´ -Ravindra Pai, Oracle Corporation, SUNOS product line ´´Bruce, your book is wonderful! Your explanations are clear and direct. Through your fantastic book I have gained a tremendous amount of Java knowledge. The exercises are also fantastic and do an excellent job reinforcing the ideas explained throughout the chapters. I look forward to reading more books written by you. Thank you for the tremendous service that you are providing by writing such great books. My code will be much better after reading Thinking in Java. I thank you and I´m sure any programmers who will have to maintain my code are also grateful to you.´´ -Yvonne Watkins, Java artisan, Discover Technologies, Inc. ´´Other books cover the what of Java (describing the syntax and the libraries) or the how of Java (practical programming examples). Thinking in Java is the only book I know that explains the why of Java: Why it was designed the way it was, why it works the way it does, why it sometimes doesn´t work, why it´s better than C++, why it´s not. Although it also does a good job of teaching the what and how of the language, Thinking in Java is definitely the thinking person´s choice in a Java book.´´ -Robert S.

A continuation of Lloyd Kahn´s journeys into the creative processes of owner-built homes -- their innovative techniques, use of sustainable materials, and essential dedication to the natural elements surrounding their designs -- ´´Builders of the Pacific Coast´´ explores the aesthetics and skills of three master builders in California, Washington state, and the rugged terrain of British Columbia. The three featured craftsmen -- Lloyd House, Bruce Atkey, and Sun Ray Kelley -- combine imaginative architecture with innovative contexts: everything from unusual house-boats to sculptural dwellings made of driftwood are included. With stunning color and black-and-white photographs, as well as detailed black-and-white drawings of the homes, this collection of unique and progressive designs creates a template for a future filled with forward-thinking architecture.
An inventive story collection that spans the globe as it explores love, childhood, and parenthood with an electric mix of humor and emotion. Acclaimed for the grace, wit, and magic of her novels, Ramona Ausubel introduces us to a geography both fantastic and familiar in eleven new stories, some of them previously published in The New Yorker and The Paris Review. Elegantly structured, these stories span the globe and beyond, from small-town America and sunny Caribbean islands to the Arctic Ocean and the very gates of Heaven itself. And though some of the stories are steeped in mythology, they remain grounded in universal experiences: loss of identity, leaving home, parenthood, joy, and longing. Crisscrossing the pages of Awayland are travelers and expats, shadows and ghosts. A girl watches as her homesick mother slowly dissolves into literal mist. The mayor of a small Midwestern town offers a strange prize, for stranger reasons, to the parents of any baby born on Lenin´s birthday. A chef bound for Mars begins an even more treacherous journey much closer to home. And a lonely heart searches for love online - never mind that he´s a Cyclops. With her signature tenderness, Ramona Ausubel applies a mapmaker´s eye to landscapes both real and imagined, all the while providing a keen guide to the wild, uncharted terrain of the human heart.
