Forget the rule book and relive one of the most exciting race series ever with Can-Am 50th Anniversary! The first rule of Can-Am: There are no rules. Or at least damn few rules. The bodywork had to enclose the wheels and there had to be something that loosely resembled a passenger seat--if your passenger was a misshapen human or a lab monkey. Otherwise, set your racing mind free. No limits to engine options or output, no restrictions on aerodynamic aids or body shape. It was as close to unrestricted as racing had ever gotten or would ever get again. And it was fantastic. From its introduction in 1966 to its end in 1974, North America's Can-Am series was the most technologically advanced and star-studded racing series of the day. Its essentially rules-free formula attracted everyone from crazed backyard engineers to specialists such as McLaren, Chaparral, and Lola to manufacturers like Ford, Ferrari, and Porsche. Top drivers including Mario Andretti, Bruce McLaren, Jackie Ickx, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Mark Donohue, Peter Revson, and John Surtees competed on tracks across the US and Canada, taking time off from Formula One schedules to drive in Can-Am. Can-Am 50th Anniversary offers a heavily illustrated look back at what is arguably the greatest race series ever. Photographer Pete Biro followed the series throughout its glory era from 1966-74, his images appearing in Road & Track, Car and Driver and Sports Illustrated. Many of the book's images are unpublished or long out of circulation. Biro brings his unique perspective and his close relationship with the drivers, team owners, and constructors to bear on the captions while former Autoweek motorsports editor George Levy provides text reflecting the thrill of Can-Am racing. Relive one of the most exciting race series ever with Can-Am 50th Anniversary.

Who Goes There - 50th Anniversary Edition

NEW UPDATED EDITION celebrating 50 years of Dr Who. Who Goes There is the sequel to Nick’s hugely popular Doctor Who memoir, Dalek I Loved You. It’s a travel book with Doctor Who at its core. Nick travels England and Wales, seeking locations used in the show, both Classic (pre-relaunch) and New. Being an odd kind of show, its locations too are odd. This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick discovers another side to our well-trodden country, which is no less evocative. Then he goes to the pub. As in Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick’s childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings. A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations and details of the nearest pub. In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps. Scariest of all, given two other books in the pipeline (both humour books, for Arcturus Publishing), Nick has just 21 days in which to write it. Really. Who Goes There isn’t just for Who fans – it’s for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path. And a very funny book.

French Symbolist Poetry, 50th Anniversary Edition, Bilingual Edition

Whether viewed as an influence or in and for themselves, the Symbolists are a tantalizing group. Paralleling similar movements in art and music, their intensely personal poetry leans more heavily on oblique suggestions and evocation than on overt statement. It sets its perceptions, intuitive and nonrational, squarely against intellectual and scientific thinking—and this with a music that is flexible, intrepid, and subtle, sometimes even dissonant and jazzy. But the poetry itself is the movement's best definition. Here with bilingual text en face, an introduction, and illuminating notes, are some forty carefully selected poems of that movement. They range from the remote beginnings in Nerval and Baudelaire, through the humor and irony of Corbière and Laforgue, to the technical brilliance of Valéry, who died as recently as 1945. For those who wish an overall view of the movement, this is a generous sampling.

La señorita Slighcarp no tarda en mostrar su peor cara, haciendo y deshaciendo con la única intención de enriquecerse a costa de los Willoughby. Fieles sirvientes despedidos, valiosos muebles vendidos, caos, desvarío, confusión... Sin embargo, lo peor está por llegar: Bonnie y su tímida prima Sylvia acaban vestidas con harapos en un siniestro orfanato, un lugar aún más temible que los lobos que proliferan en la zona.

¿Ha oído usted hablar del misterioso manuscrito Voynich cuya escritura aun hoy sigue sin ser descifrada? ¿ Sabe que en el Libro de Enoch, un apócrifo del Antiguo Testamento, se habla de seres celestes que deciden bajar a la Tierra para mantener relaciones sexuales con las hijas de los hombres? ¿ Sabe que en una cueva de Ecuador un sacerdote encontró un tesoro tan insólito como extraordinario respecto a lo que sabemos de nuestro pasado? ¿Sabe que las últimas investigaciones sobre las líneas de Nazca han aportado aun más interrogantes que respuestas? Con nuevas investigaciones y datos sobre estos y otros temas igual de apasionantes, en esta nueva y polémica obra, Erich von Däniken continua con su tarea de demostrar que en un pasado la Tierra fue visitada por seres de otro planeta y que hay muchos testimonios y pruebas que lo demuestran. Pruebas que, según von Däniken, han sido y son olvidadas cuando no ocultadas por la historia oficial, ¿por qué? Con su estilo claro, directo, irónico y provocador von Däniken da una nueva vuelta de tuerca a sus hipótesis en esta obra apasionante logrando dejar en el aire una duda demoledora para nuestra visión del hombre y la historia.

Toyin Ayeni is the author of I am a Nigerian NOT a Terrorist. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria as well as a Master of Science degree in Information Systems Management (MSISM) from Loyola University Chicago. She works as a Project Manager and lives with her husband and three children, Anthony, Elizabeth and Andrew, in Chicago, Illinois. Toyin is a past president of a Chicago chapter of Toastmasters International among other organizations she has helped lead. The purpose of this book, which started prior to the December 25th, 2009 Christmas Bomber incident, is to put a spotlight on Nigeria, and to celebrate the country's 50th anniversary on October 1st, 2010 with a focus on the positive and what makes it unique. The book will: i. Enlighten the world about Nigeria, providing candid information with more emphasis and focus on the positive and unique aspects about this West African country. ii. Show that the country is a lot more than a producer of terrorists or con-artists, and highlight its potential and hope for a better tomorrow. iii. Show a need and urgency for all human beings to have a sense of curiosity about others, to generate an interest in fellow human beings to ignite the spirit of tolerance. iv. Open our eyes even wider and broaden our view of the face of terrorism in hopes to conquer it very soon. v. Leave a legacy of the Nigerian culture and a better environment for the children than we met it. The book will sensitize you to the fact that no matter what space you occupy here on earth, Nigerian or non-Nigerian, global problems require global solutions and a little effort to make changes by everyone from all nations can go a long way. I also hope that your knowledge and understanding of other cultures, starting with Nigeria, will increase your urge to know more of your surroundings, other human beings around the world, and encouraged to be your brother's keeper as we all fight against terrorism and other world issues.
